Heart Beating – Lyrics

with 3 comments

rita-hayworth_5

The sun shines down
On the road you choose
As you bounce along
In your high heeled shoes

Would you value my compliment?
On your look or style?
Would you feel a thrill?
As you return my smile?

You make me feel alive
You make me feel something good
And I can feel my heart beating
I can feel it pumping blood

You live in the moment
You know your needs
You wield your beauty
As you surf with ease

What can I give you?
Have I what you desire?
Can I make you happy?
For more than a while?

You make me feel alive
You make me feel something good
And I can feel my heart beating
I can feel it pumping blood

Below the Waterline – Lyrics

with one comment

bogart-bergman-casablanca

I thought of you today
And what you used to say
Oh…how your words cut deep
About what I’ve sowed and what I’ll reap
But I will hide the signs
Below the waterline

What is yours and what is mine?
I’ve tried to walk the right line
Between losing myself
And winning your acceptance
As angels and demons whine
Below the waterline

What is true and what is real
Beyond what I think and what I feel?
I’ve learned to give and to take
To love and to create
And along the way I’ve saved all I find
Below the waterline

I don’t let many people in
To share my thoughts herein
And I still can’t understand
The feelings I can’t command
And the dark chains that bind
Below the waterline

I remember my priest tell
Of heaven and of hell
But since then I’ve lost my belief
With some regret and with some grief
It still echoes through the chambers of my mind
Below the waterline

What is true and what is real
Beyond what I think and what I feel?
I’ve learned to give and to take
To love and to create
And along the way I’ve lived by what I find
Below the waterline

In Her Swimming Pool – Lyrics

leave a comment »

Her red ruby lips
Her hair a lustrous brown
The way she moved her hips
Messed my head around
I forgot all the rules
When I swam in her swimming pool

On a night of stars
We looked in our eyes
We kissed and saw far
Beyond common lies
We were hot & the night was cool
When I swam in her swimming pool

I wanted more
She did not resist
She began to moan
And strain and twist
Her body tingled to my rule
When I swam in her swimming pool

Our quest was treasure
We duelled without swords
We valued without measure
We spoke without words
The look in her face was the fuel
When I swam in her swimming pool

It rained & it poured
I was washed anew
We played sacred chords
Heard only by a few.
It was mother nature’s school
When I swam in her swimming pool

In the aftermath sure
Her body moonlight shone
Her face majestic pure
And peace had silently come
A loving tenderness ensued
When I swam in her swimming pool

Her red ruby lips
Her hair a lustrous brown
The way she moved her hips
Messed my head around
I forgot all the rules
When I swam in her swimming pool

Have I Loved Her Enough? – Lyrics

leave a comment »

The lines are all drawn
And positions taken
It’s arguments at dawn
And we are forsaken
I think about giving and taking
And how she takes too much
But I’ve got a treacherous feeling
That I ain’t loved her enough

Will our differences exchange
For the complement we seek?
I know love requires change
And turning the other cheek
Will she do some kneeling?
And her share of the rough?
But I’ve got a treacherous feeling
That I ain’t loved her enough

Why do we seek control?
Is it a security thing?
We could destroy the whole
Of what we’re trying to win
A lost battle has me reeling
Did I shoot the wrong stuff?
But I’ve got a treacherous feeling
That I ain’t loved her enough

So give of your love
And it shall be given to you
It’s more blessed to give
Than to receive it too
Such a love sounds healing
And ours a childish bluff
I’ve got a treacherous feeling
That I ain’t loved her enough

Do Unto Me – Lyrics

leave a comment »

Can we fix this?
Or is it too late?
Is your heart too wounded
Behind your locked gate?
I’ve tried in my way
To open my heart to you
Will you do unto me
As you would have me do unto you?

I have walked in your shoes
To study your fears
I’ve learned from wise men
And my mistakes down the years
To sing together
I’ve often played to your tune
Will you do unto me
As you would have me do unto you?

Now I have many colours
Not just black or white
Sometimes I’ve strayed into the dark
But I strive for the light
I would forgive you
A mistake or two
Will you do unto me
As you would have me do unto you?

The seeds that were sown
So they shaped our hearts
And in that tangle that was grown
So it shaped our start
I would not ask you
For more than you could do
Will you do unto me
As you would have me do unto you?

I was more of the head
And you of the heart
We should be stronger together
Than we are apart
I would accept
You have a different view
Will you do unto me
As you would have me do unto you?

If I Conquer Myself – Lyrics

leave a comment »

Dorian Gray

I raised my voice, when I should have not
I looked at you, while thinking wrong thoughts
I drank too much, and disguised by mirth
Said careless words, and you, got hurt

After we argue, I often shut you out
I waited to calm down, I wouldn’t trust my mouth
I made a silence & I wouldn’t let it go
I made you lonely, and I wish, it wasn’t so.

I spend too much time, living inside my head
It makes me negative, and aloof, you said
I need more heart, and I need more fun
I feed the elephant, when I, should make it run

My emotions they are dark, too dark to read
They swirl, they rise up, when it’s calmness I need
They lash out when things don’t go my way
My wise counsel, is drowned, inside my head.

I’ve seen a love, as warm as the sun
It touched the heart and the soul of everyone
A graceful self that was clear to its shine
An inspiration, I keep always, in my mind

I know I’m blind so I can’t see
That I’m a prisoner so I’m not free
I know a change now must surely come
That if I conquer, myself, I will be done

She Harbours Resentment – Lyrics

leave a comment »

I know 1-1

She harbours resentment
I feel it as it stifles her kiss
She harbours resentment
She feels there’s so much I’ve missed
She harbours resentment
I try to reach her but she resists

It started so well
How could we foretell
We made plans & lists
But they didn’t include this
Our differences in time
Became a chasm wide
What’s mine to confess
I now ask forgiveness

She harbours resentment
I feel it as it stifles her embrace
She harbours resentment
I see the wariness in her face
She harbours resentment
She needed more love and she needed more grace

I remember her touch
When she loved me so much
We talked every night
And our dreams shone so bright
Now there’s silence and hurt
Forgotten value and worth
What’s mine to confess
I now ask forgiveness

She harbours resentment
I feel it as it stifles her love
She harbours resentment
Now whatever I do its never enough
She harbours resentment
I’m between the rock below and the hard place above

Her happiness
Was always my quest
And it’s a haunted mess
That I’ve failed that test
I wish our kingdom
Had more time to come
But what’s mine to confess
I now ask forgiveness
