A Conversation Amongst The Starlight White

The unbalanced glass of whiskey rested precariously on the arm of his beloved deck chair, the moon sparkles glimmering on the surface of the glass.. He ran his finger around the edge of the glass, feeling the slightly jagged chip on the rim, the result of a little too much exuberance while washing up… His…

Lyrics as Poems of Life: ‘Ultraviolet (Light My Way)’

Sometimes I feel like I don’t know Sometimes I feel like checking out. I wanna get it wrong Can’t always be strong And love, it won’t be long. Oh, sugar, don’t you cry. Oh, child, wipe the tears from your eyes. You know I need you to be strong And the day it is dark,…

Lyrics as Poems of Life: ‘Moment Of Surrender’

How ’bout getting off these antibiotics How ’bout stopping eating when I’m full up How ’bout them transparent dangling carrots How ’bout that ever elusive kudo Thank you India Thank you terror Thank you disillusionment Thank you frailty Thank you consequence Thank you thank you silence How ’bout me not blaming you for everything How…

Lyrics as Poems of Life: ‘Stay Alive’

There’s a rhythm in rush these days, Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams In a world gone shallow, in a world gone lean… Sometimes there’s things a man cannot know, Gears won’t turn and the leaves won’t grow, There’s no place to run and…

Lyrics as Poems of Life: ‘Line of Fire’

What would you doIf it all came back to you Each crest of each wave Bright as lightning What would you say If you had to leave today Leave everything behind Even though for once you’re shining Standing on higher ground But when you hear the sounds You realise it’s just a whim And you…

Lyrics as Poems of Life: ‘Crosses’

Don’t you know that I’ll be around to guide you Through your weakest moments to leave them behind you Returning nightmares only shadows We’ll cast some light and you’ll be alright We’ll cast some light and you’ll be alright for now Crosses all over, heavy on your shoulders The sirens inside you waiting to step…

Lyrics as Poems of Life: ‘Tonight, Tonight’

Time is never time at all You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth And our lives are forever changed We will never be the same The more you change the less you feel Believe, believe in me, believe That life can change, that you’re not stuck in vain We’re not the…
