{June 7, 2013}   Long Way From Home ~ Lyrics

parkwayexit
AUTHORS NOTE: some of my lyrics I’ve been meaning to post since last week before i went off on a tangent…one of these days i’m gonna figure out how to upload or download or sideload or whatever kinda load is needed to get my damn songs here instead of just the words…until then, please to enjoy some lyrics from a Bullet Train song- i’m so silly i don’t even remember which cd it’s on- bad bad lead singer girl.

I’m a long way from home
and i’m tired of being alone
if someone would give me another chance
i think i could make it, if i could fake it
so Mama please won’t you make it clear
and tell me how did i wind up here
you know it’s nothing like i thought it would be
i thought that i would’ve made it without feeling jaded

Once you sat me on your knee
and told me life’s a mystery
just waiting for me to walk by
to try to keep me way down, low to the ground
so Mama please say a prayer for me
and i’m sure the good Lord will agree
that i could use all the help i could get
to get me out of this mess
here i am more or less
a long way from home
i’m a long way from home

Cough syrup and cigarettes
at three in the morning
there’s gotta be a better way to take this ride
i’m sweating inside
a long way from home
i’m a long way from home
road to cape may

thiswaternymph
Come with me oh come with me
i’m looking for a lover
waited many lifetimes for the touch of your embrace
oh come with me down below
down by the water, down by the water
come with me down below

Hear my voice through the night
hear my melancholy song
cast a spell upon you till your will becomes my own
listen hard and follow me
down by the water,down by the water
listen hard and follow me

Feel my mouth pressed to yours
press your warm lips to my cold lips
waited far too long to feel your breath mingle with mine
breathe on me i’ll steal your soul
down by the water, down by the water
breathe on me i’ll steal your soul

There you’ll stay you’ll stay with me
till I’ve had my fill of you
leave you all alone there with the water’s cold embrace
another lover walks the shore
down by the water, down by the water
another lover walks the shore
shore



{May 26, 2013}   Naughty Girl

naughtynice
AUTHORS NOTE~ I’ve decided to write down some of the lyrics to songs I’ve written for my band someplace other than a leather bound notebook because really it’s just poetry anyway, right?

    NAUGHTY GIRL

I’ve been a criminal, I’ve been a thief
I’ve been a robber and I caused all kinds of grief
I’ve been to Heaven’s door, I been to Hell
Been somewhere in the middle, bet you couldn’t tell

I’ve been a liar and a teller of tall tales
I stretched the truth a bit when everything else failed
Your expectations of me, much too extreme
Hard to live up to what you think that I should be

And when you think back on me, I know you will
Try to remember you were hunting for a kill
I tried that good-girl route, that ain’t no lie
revised my act after you said your first goodbye

I been a naughty girl – you know I really didn’t mean to be
A naughty little girl – you know I really didn’t try to be
I been a naughty girl – and when I ask you what you think of me
Just wish you wouldn’t be so quick to agree
