Reaction Time

I could tell when we first connected there were vulnerabilities And though you were protected they didn’t go unseen I know you heard the signal all alone there in the night I felt your hesitation just before you dropped from sight High above your fortress in the clouds you cannot see Among them undetected it’s […]

Something Somewhere

I’m going off to find something And I don’t care where and I don’t care what There’s a wild voice that’s calling me It’s off somewhere that I can’t see You’re not alone You’re not the only one Who knows it’s there Something somewhere Something somewhere You can feel it on a quiet walk When […]

Jealousy and Envy

You told me many times Watch out for what you got Hold on to what you want But I folded easily When it got to me I just couldn’t see I don’t know what I’d do If it got back to you And you felt it too Jealousy Envy You’re no stranger to me But […]

Ghost Light

If you ever wander down to the old part of town There’s a marquee that leans to one side And a box office window cloudy and dark in a lobby where an old usher hides There the street may suddenly fall silent And you might feel a faint tinge of fear Where once stood a […]

In Her Veins

The flowers don’t grow unless she says they can The sun won’t rise until she waves her hand Electricity is in her veins And it pulls at me like that When I walk away I walk right back Horses and castles and stories of distant lands Move in her lips and the fingers on her […]
