JUST A DREAM

Let the rain disguise my tears
The thunder mask the screams
I didn't need him anyway
He    was    just    a    dream

Winds tantalize my fingers
As they reach up for the sky
Release to it the reasons
I believed I had to cry
~~*~~
Now watch the sunrise
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The scarlet red's the blood I shed
But it won't last too long
When the sun is high, up in that sky
It means that I've moved on
I am free, so clean...
He was just a dream
~~*~~

White clouds gently drifting
Beckon to my weary being
They are just an illusion
Like his claims of love for me

Clouds can't hold my body
No longer blind, I finally see
Their mist is not substantial
Like him, they are just a dream

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Just a dream that I was living
Chasing every promise spoke
Stepped outside and called the forces
Raised my hands and let them go
Now it's time...
To watch the sunrise
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The scarlet red's the blood I shed
But it won't last too long
When the sun is high, up in that sky
It means that I've moved on
I am free, so clean...
He was just a dream
~~*~~
Ooh...
~~ Just a dream~~

KNOCK ON ANOTHER'S DOOR

I don't sit around, playing house
When life is happening right outside
And if you don't want to join me
I will not hang on you and cry

I won't call you every minute
 I don't need you to checking in
I'm your lover, not your Mother
Don't have to tell me where you've been

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I am not a fool for love
The mushy touchy feely thing that girls speak of
I'm not the kind of woman to lose my head
Think we can solve a problem
 with some time in bed
So if that's what you're looking for...
Knock on another's door
~~*~~

You do not have to share your past
Unless it pertains to me
For every detail left behind
Is right where it should be

But I must know I can trust you
No, deceit won't be ignored
Think about it, and if I can't
Knock on another's door

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
I don't play games like a little girl
You won't be the center of my whole word
I will respect you, yeah I'll treat you right
You'll know that you're loved each and every night
Now,  if you need something more...
Knock on another's door
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I am not a fool for love
The mushy touchy feely thing that girls speak of
I'm not the kind of woman to lose my head
Think we can solve a problem
 with some time in bed
So if that's what you're looking for...
Knock on another's door
~~*~~

IF I COULD

I keep hearing that it will get better
That it is always darkest with the night
Come the dawn, everything looks brighter
My will to live shall rally for the fight
You're telling me I am not alone here
There's always someone I just have to look
Don't you know that I've become too weary
I'd have already done so if I could

~~~*Chorus*~~~
If I could...
I would see the best of what is here
If I could
I wouldn't be lonely, so damned strangled
By my fears
I know I should..
I should see the beauty, please believe me 
I would... 
I would if I could
~~*~~

When you tell me I am being selfish
Not to say that I'm leaving you again
I know that you Love me and you'll miss me
But even that can't measure with this pain
You say that you don't understand me
I can't explain when I am just as blind
All I know is that to end this misery
I've got to go and leave this life behind

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
If I could wave a magic wand
Clean out the depths of me
I'd blow apart the desperation
And I'd set the laughter free
Right now everything that's wonderful and good...
Has escaped me
And  I would bring it back if I could
Oh...If I could
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
If I could...
I would see the best of what is here
If I could
I wouldn't be lonely, so damned strangled
 By my fears
I know I should..
I should see the beauty, please believe me 
I would... 
I would if  I could
~~*~~

TWITTER ATTITUDE

He followed me on twitter
So I followed him back
Had to block that sucker
He was talking too much smack
And I don't do... 
Twitter attitude

When someone makes a comment
That comes off as downright mean
My reply's a big goodbye
Buddy you don't interest me
Cause I don't do...
Twitter attitude

~~~*Chorus*~~~
When I get online
Want to unwind
It's nice to hear or read
An awesome song
Family being strong
Tweets from celebrities 
Don't like the crude
Naked butts and boobs
Filthy words and just plain rude
Cause I don't do...
Twitter attitude
~~*~~

The people that I follow
They are real and speak their minds
Out to help their Brothers
Stay in touch with a reply
If you're honest, and you follow
Well, then I will add you too
But I don't do...
Twitter attitude

~~~*Chorus*~~~
When I get online

It's nice to hear or read

Twitter attitude
~~*~~

~~~*Finale*~~~
Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams
Biz Stone and Noah Glass
Thank you guys for twitter
For five years I've had a blast
I am a fan of many
And with twitter I can see
Feelings, pics, and tours
Of some great celebrities
It really rocks, that I can block
The creeps, and jerks and fools
Cause I don't do...
Twitter attitude
~~*~~

THE WAY LIFE SHOULD BE

Mmm mm mm
So close beside you
Deep in your dreams
You reach for me
Whisper my name
My tears falling
This is the way
That life should be

I close my eyes
You softly breathing
Find my own dreams
Mmm there you are
And you love me
Up in the white clouds
Passion unbound
Beneath the stars

~~~*Chorus*~~~
In the early morning hours
Leave our dreams and make it real
All day working, while I'm thinking
Just how right he makes me feel
And every moment we're apart
Oh, he's still a part of me
This is the way
It's the only way...
That life should be
~~*~~

Mmm mm mm
Back home together
Love overflows
When our eyes meet
You say my name
Sounds so pretty
This is the way
That life should be

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
There's no fighting, there's no judging
I'm his woman, He's my man
Only loving, and supporting
Praise each other all we can
We are lovers, we are friends
Share the same goals and our dreams
All because...
This is the way...
That life should be
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
In the early morning hours
Leave our dreams and make it real
All day working, while I'm thinking
Just how right he makes me feel
And every moment we're apart
Oh, he's still a part of me
This is the way
It's the only way...
That life should be
~~*~~

MONDAYS WERE THE BLUES

Mama liked Skynyrd and the Rolling Stones 
She'd play their records so we could dance 
Daddy came home and pulled out his guitar
Our nights ended with some Johnny Cash
Grew up with the Eagles and Charlie Pride
Mixing up the artists and their tunes
Come Monday
Every Monday
Mondays were the blues

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Elmore James
T-bone Walker
Janis Joplin, B.B.King
John Lee Hooker
 Muddy Waters
And Billie Holiday...
Mondays were cool
Never suffered through
Mondays
Cause Mondays were the blues
~~*~~

Family never fought for the radio
Every station offered something fine
We all sang along with most anything
Loved the music eating up the miles

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
We mourned a loss
Like they were our best friends
Though their music would keep shining through
It broke our hearts
We realized the cost
They would never create something new
Thank God for Mondays
Oh, Mondays were the blues
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Elmore James
T-bone Walker
Janis Joplin, B.B.King
John Lee Hooker
Muddy Waters
And Billie Holiday...
Mondays were cool
Never suffered through
Mondays
Cause Mondays were the blues
~~*~~

THERAPY

She was playing with some children
wilted flowers as her crown
A necklace of dandelions
And her blue jeans for a gown
There was laughter,There was dancing
Lord, I wanted to join in 
It was like something from a dream
The way that she played with them

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I don't need no therapy
No costly mental hug
Just saw some real-life happiness
Buddy that is good enough
I can't find a better reason 
To quit whining and feel good
All the laughing, and the dancing
Found its way into my blood
The goodness I can see...
New therapy
~~*~~
They were walking down their driveway
Two old people holding hands
Not that far to reach their mailbox
But I've come to understand

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
As life speeds by, if you rage and cry
About every little thing
You'll never know, that if you took it slow
How amazing it could be 
You've got to get, some true happiness
Before you can finally see...
It's real-life stuff, when you laugh and love
The best kind of therapy
~~*~~
~~~*Chorus*~~~
I don't need no therapy
No costly mental hug
Just saw some real-life happiness
Buddy that is good enough
I can't find a better reason 
To quit whining and feel good
All the laughing, and the dancing
Found its way into my blood
The goodness I can see...
New therapy
~~*~~

AND LIFE BEGINS

He found her...
Dancing in shadows
Trying to hide
In the smokey haze

She found him...
Paying for glances
Fighting to chase
Emptiness away

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The lonely find love
And their life changes
Drawn to each other
Through a sea of faces
Filling the deep voids
They've become lost in 
The lonely find love
And life begins
~~*~~

He kissed her...
Starving for worship
He was so lost
She brought him home

She kissed him...
Felt his needs find hers
Draw her back from
Where anguish roams

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
We're not meant to travel through this life alone
Everybody needs a body that they can hold
To love and laugh with, to give love freely...
Without it, life has not begun, you're lonely
So lonely
Find somebody, and begin to live
You find somebody and life begins
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The lonely find love
And their life changes
Drawn to each other
Through a sea of faces
Filling the deep voids
They've become lost in 
The lonely find love
And life begins
~~*~~
