My Songs

Part of taking a break from social media was to work more on the music I’ve been writing and making it into songs to record. I’ve been writing songs and poems for a long time, but haven’t given them much of chance to be heard or shared at all.

Here are two of my recent songs.  Maybe I’ll be brave and share videos for you to hear them later…Maybe.

Back

Sometimes you just get lead to places that ain’t so fun to go.
They take you back to lovely faces, of people you used to know.
It’s those times you wished you turned the wheel and headed the other way.
But then something deep inside you said toughen up and stay.
So I stayed, and now here I am.
And I won’t look back and see the hurt that made me run the other way.
I will only see the beauty in this place that begs me, stay.
Here’s my heart, can you feel it beating all too fast.
Because I’m back here in this place and I’m staring at your face.
Hoping this moment will never pass.
 
Sometimes you’re far from who you’ve been.
And that’s just who you should be.
Sometimes you find that holding on is the thing that sets you free.
It’s those times your heart takes over and fights your pride just to stay.
You could leave here now heartbroken but forever lose your way.
So I stay, and now here I am.
And I won’t look back and see the hurt that made me run the other way.
I will choose to see the beauty in this place that lets me stay.
Here’s my heart, can you feel it beating all too fast.
Because I’m back here in this place.  I’m staring at your face.
Thank God for the things that lead us back.

Pick Me Up

You tell me go home and you tell me don’t call.
But now I’m all alone and without you, I fall.
Can’t you see all my pieces scattered all around?
Because without you I’m useless, yeah I just keep breaking down.
No, I can’t do this anymore.
I’ve gotta get up off this floor.
Oh, won’t you come and pick me up?
You said that I should just change, that I’m not what you want.
But baby, we’re all the same, I can’t be something I’m not.
And maybe I’ve got some secrets written on my heart.
And maybe it’s all our secrets that make us just who we are.
I’m not gonna do this anymore.
I’ll get myself up off this floor
Oh, don’t you come and pick me up.
I thought I could just trust you, and I could give you my heart.
But I was wrong yet again, I should have seen from the start.
You took piece after piece of me, all for yourself.
You took all of the best of me and put it high on your shelf.
You’re not gonna do this anymore.
No, I’m stronger than before.
Oh, don’t you come and pick me up.
