I like that ^ alot Livo.

I'm in a down sort of mood, which suits me fine as it's got me writing a bit this evening. This is what I got so far...

It's not so hard to say I told you so
But yesterday was so hard, why'd you go?

You packed your thoughts and walked away from me
I tried to follow but I just can't see

With your life, that one without me
do you ever feel empty? Do you ever think of me?

maybe you're right, but all you'll do is stare
I'd give my life, but I don't think you'd care


So watch my thoughts now, I'd give them all to you
But You'd kick them to the ground, pretend you never knew

Now I'm down, I'm out and feeling weak
but you don't mind, you just turn the other cheek

With your life, that one without me
do you ever feel empty? Do you ever think of me?

maybe you're right, but all you'll do is stare
I'd give my life, but I don't think you'd care


I feel it's gotta go somewhere else from here, so I'm gonna come back to it tomorrow and see what happens.

it's all about profits and privatization

That is class in my opinion, really liked and related to that.

Thanks - maybe I've been listening to too much Xavier Rudd and John Butler Trio!

she said god let her down and she dont consider herself no christian
she drew her lines in the sand without even measuring the distance
to her faith, her friends, she was alone, she was cryin and closeted
the tides took her lines out to sea now shes back where she started

she thinks the world spins as a joke and its told to keep her from livin
or maybe lovin, she wasnt sure but as its turnin shes turnin with it
and her backs to the wall and her eyes down cryin an ocean
shes sick to her stomach from the feeling of all the commotion

she never remembered her footprints mirrored in the sand
or the night it was just right when romeo kissed her in spain
the sun's done nothing but shine for days
but she cant quit talking about the rain

he was born with a target on his chest, or so he thought
counted the money the he dropped not the kisses that he cought
blamed it on the working mans blues and the rich had it right
but his wishes were riches, not kisses and he wished every night

So she asked me to dance
and I don't know how
but I got off the seat
let her make me complete
then watched her go

I never did get that dance
never figured out how
to cool down this heat
control my heartbeat
and what's weighing me down...

The lights go out
and everyone holds hands
still I'm without
I can never understand
these silly games
these silly games

So don't waste your time
he's just over there
sitting smug on that chair
he's happy to stare
but he's lacking a spine...

The lights go out
and everyone holds hands
still I'm without
I can never understand
these silly games
these silly games

The lights go out
and everyone holds hands
still I'm without
I can never understand
these silly games
these silly games

So don't come over here
'cos I just won't see you
No I won't play these games
And your type are all too see through
For me

So the lights gone out
and everyone must hold hands
I'll go without
I never cared to understand
these silly games
your silly games

Fool;

"So the lights gone out

Wonderful.

and genzoman;

"he was born with a target on his chest, or so he thought
counted the money the he dropped not the kisses that he cought
blamed it on the working mans blues and the rich had it right
but his wishes were riches, not kisses and he wished every night"

Fantastic.

This song is untitled for the moment

And all the while my brain was spinning circles in the bus lot of his heart
Empty spaces overrun by what heíd heard and what I thought Iíd done
Before I even started out, my phone was ringing loudly now and leading to some shotty little quip
Like, ďWhy the hellíd it take you so long to let him break you?Ē
And I reply, ďWould you even be calling had you not heard?Ē
Silence becomes her.

For miles and miles, I tore away until the past few days, they fell apart
An aftermath left comparable to what my parents had always said would come
And nearing on my home town, Iíd forgotten what weíd said now upon breaking from this God forsaken place
My life lain in the crosshairs, Iíd promised to await here should I return
ďDonít forget; Iíll always love you,Ē whispered softly,
Her hands hanging on me

But swinging there in silence, I could see it in her gloomy forward motion
A crassness and arrogance that what she has alone here is so pure
ďWhoíre you fooling honey, this place has never known me and youíre too far gone to notice; we donít live here anymore.Ē

And line for line, I lifted all my blessings until they came back out in red
A troubadour of lonely words with inspiration tracing back behind him some 500 miles
The fact that I abhor this house has managed to escape me now as fallen senses pounding out again
The lost monotony overswept me, but her image never left: seeing all replies of tearing at her clothes until sheís bleeding, smile never receding

But holding there in silence, I could see it in her happy lifeless motion
A crassness and arrogance that what she has alone here is so pure
ďWhoíre you fooling honey, this place has never known me and youíre too far gone to notice; we donít live here anymore.Ē

Never mind the empathy when itís easier not to lie

No lyricism from me for a while, it's all been poetry sorry!

Anyhow great lyrics fool, and good pheonix, i love the song

Here's a song, honest: (i just made a 3 note tune for it so it's officially lyrics)

Words Between a Pedestal
and the ground

He is free from fear who has directions
from a higher God
And though controlled by higher fears
protected from our Gods
He smiles and winks and thinks
beyond the wild world and from its brink
overflowing and all knowing
of all things
but not growing, not beyond
his own form, and not we, from
ours.

I think that is my favourite title for...anything I've ever seen.

Well done: I would really like to hear the progression, too, just to see how you set it to music.

This is called "Sinking Dents and Silhouettes", it's meant to be a duet.

Leaving out is overrated; justifying what you hated
Finally dead and trailing through the streets
Sinking dents and silhouettes replace an open invitation
Stitched into the fabricated seam

For an hour or so, Iíll let you go before you start to notice; sleep, youíve never noticed
The coversí weight picking up for me
Endearments wrapped inside and pushed away, the glove compartmentís only way
To guess, to feel a consequential chime

And oh, Iíll be fine
And oh, Iíll be fine

Hiding out is underrated; fleeing, arms and all, my welcome overstayed
Straying left, youíll never hear from me
Sheltered frowns, my tongue tied down, the floor speaks its mind and I reply,
ďI only wanted to reside somewhere, anywhere, away from me.Ē

And oh, Iíll be fine
And oh, Iíll be fine

Leave her out of this, you want me
Leave him out of this, you want me
Give me all itís become
Give me, save her, see me? Give me, save him, see me?

I just tabbed and managed to decipher the words to the first song i recorded acoustically, probably when i was 13 years old!

My band at the time refused to play it because it wasn't a propper song acording to them! I wrote it when i was in the middle of a mental "episode" and just trying to verbalise the primative childish plees that i had at the time and the obserd cringeworthy ridiculousness inwhich i saw myself. DARK lol, it's really defiant, i refused to make the words less vunerable, or make them rhyme or to make it in anyway stylysed, and it ended up with no-one actually liking it.

JUST A LITTLE BOY


asus2, cmaj7, csus2, a7,
asus2, cmaj7, csus2, D,

(repeat)

I'm just a little boy
why you making me cry
I'm just a little boy
why you making me cry

I'm just a little boy
why you ripping out my heart
why are you eating it

I'm just a little boy
why you put me in a cage
why you shooting the monkeys
making them throw tomatoes at me

I'm just a little boy
don't try to make me listen
try to make me mature

I'm
not here
to look after
your wife and kids


asus2, cmaj7, dsus2, csus2-dsus2

Csus2 D
just a little boy

Csus2 D
just a little boy

asus2, cmaj7, dsus2, csus2-dsus2


Why you doing this to me
and Why you doing this to me
and Why you doing this to me
and Why you doing this


Why you doing this to me
and Why you doing this to me
and Why you doing this to me
dsus2, csus2 asus2
and Why'm i doing this to myself

i wrote a song about the post.

the morning post

every morning i land on your floor
and i hope today i'm bringing good news
i could be a flyer but i could be more
like a letter from the main post office about a parcel to be collected or something else exciting like that
my envelope's licked shut, my stamp is fully paid
cos i am your morning mail

the sun shines through your door
as i land upon the mat
and i'll wait here til you get home
i'll wait for you to hang your hat
a bill, a letter or a birthday card
the morning post, well it touches your heart

I'll post one too

BEING HONEST

I saw things I could not explain to you
I said words you could not listen
and I wrote a poem you could not read
because I was being honest for the first time
and I did not say what you wanted to hear.

At that moment I was real, I was me

Everything you asked me I gave it to you
Every question you asked me I answered
but you don't remember
and you just see what your heart can see

I was broken for a while
but I'm real, I'm not unrepentant
I'll remember every moment you made me feel happy
but I'll try to forget a sad ending like this.

Default sorry

sorry for all the people that have made the lovely comments on the things ive written in the past, without a reply from me. i dont check this enough, and when i do, its a couple page too late. thanks though! i really appreciate it.

this one is gloves

you must have walked with eggshells on your feet
because you came in without making a sound
you must have swam in six inches of water
because youre never afraid you drowned

how can you say that youve ever felt at all
when all your doors never open
youd have to stare down at your hands
to see which knob that your holdin

gloves baby, gloves sugar
pain later, love sooner
tell me darlin
does the weather
tell ya love later, lust sooner

you must have been born a phoenix child
you sure start some fires when your around
you lit a match inside of me
but burned none of me down

is it that my heart just rains
or is that your the one ive tamed
if you rode your horse to me
baby, youd better give me the reins

you wear
gloves baby, gloves sugar
pain later, love sooner
tell me darlin
does the weather tell ya
love later, lust sooner?

when your face is upon it
can you the velvet
is it the feeling that makes you
wanna melt it
is it the sound, the sight, the smell?
that gets you reeling
start looking for what you want
and get to stealing

wear your
gloves baby, gloves honey
say you dont, even know me
and i change the sky
till we match weather
so its love later, lust sooner

i can't do **** with the cops wathcing my block
so i'm sittin here wondering where i f*cked up
i never disrespected you, never called you a b*tch
or rasied my hand to hit or even clinched a fist
have i given you reason to play me like this
is my love just a game where you put my life at stake

you know me, known to beat em down and hit em with their own heat
never been afriad to watch someone from the other side bleed
but when the stakes get raised and my lifes on the line
well that ain't cool with me for beef that ain't mine, i tried to put it behind
its damn hard to put the smith n wesson back in the waist line
or to put the pride down and step back to the sane side

now you're gone, you left me with this mess
do i stand by my pride and unload a clip
should i watch him make a fool of me in front of my click
i'ma stand like a man, let him beat himself down
cause his b*tch a*s ain't worth my doin time in a cell

this life i live ain't really tought me sh*t
today i realized my pride ain't sh*t
i'ma still carry and i'll still bust if the situation gets ruff
but i ain't going outta my way to get locked up
cause a fool can't handle seeing a ring on you finger
by a kid who's been ballin since before he can remember.
well, it ain't my fault his head's f*cked up

aung san suu kyi's birthday is this week, and damo-stylee i wrote this for her. don't have a title yet so any suggestions are welcome!


i've been here so long
i can't call this home
cos in truth, it's my jail.
my cities have changed
but i don't know in what ways
seems like i'll just never leave

let me be
set me free
let me be
set me free


i don't know what i've done
and now it's all wrong
this wasn't what i'd planned at all
and now i'm getting older
and the nights, they're getting colder
my parts, my title and my perfect soul
have been stolen from me

let me be
set me free
le me be
set me free
give me back my promised nation
love and hope our salvation

Well im glad your here
Theres so much i have to say
Maybe i shouldn't speak anything
And just let you speak
You are the one who speaks in tongues
And you are the one who is really here

I can't tell if your really here
Or if your really in my dreams
And so you have all you want now
Everything, you've ever needed
Nothing to run for,
Nothing to run from.

You see i loved you first
On my hand i wrote your name
In black berol pen
And coloured my heart black
(Didn't have a red, black would do.)
I loved you first.

I dressed you in cowgirl shirts
And we wrote letters to each other
Lost somewhere in translations
But never the less emotional
Billy the kid at ten to ten
Stood and waited, its cowboy time.

Sometimes we are all broken
And sometimes we all need that feeling
Being pushed away when we kiss
Soap flavored Cherry lips
And stupid I Love Yous, on candy hearts
Nothing beats the real thing.

Well im glad your here
Theres so much i have to say
Maybe i shouldn't speak anything
And just let you speak
You are the one who speaks in tongues
And you are the one who is really here

aww thank you carl your song is lovely too any suggestions for names?

i have another new song too YAY!

trains and smokey bars

these strings are rust and grime
but there's no point in changing them
i just don't have the time
they'll work just fine

real girls don't play guitar
they just don't have the eyes to see
we're all stuck in this bell jar
and where's the m in my mtv!?

maybe i'm special, maybe i'm odd
je ne suis pas trop a la mode
i'll stop writing about hearts and stars
and start on trains and smokey bars


frustrated fingers on aching hands
the sliding of the change of chord
music, packaged in a can
soul food for the truly bored

so i climb into my unmade bed
where tears have bled into my sheets
i push the stop button in my head
the film is over, time for sleep

maybe i'm special, maybe i'm odd
je ne suis pas trop a la mode
i'll stop writing about hearts and stars
and start on trains and smokey bars
start on planes and motor cars

i wrote a book
and on the seventh line i made
a note about how

on that night we talked
about how lovers steal
and how all we could take
was a little less than real

Do the lines on my face
Show thoughts of her

have i cross the line
too many times
have i become stale
and too hard to take

my teeth
my tounge
when the final bell in rung

will i speak
or eat
the words in my lung

well i worte a book
and on the seventh line i made
a rule about you

Have you given up
Or have i become lost

Steal Blade

Oh taker of life,
Took more than you know,
His body hits cold floor
Arm stretched out as his last breath flowed

Oh sweet child
Take me home
Take this feeling away
Be strong now, donít let it bring you down
Down

And its never to late
To make things right
But you made a big hole
And the foundations are clear

Please hold on strong,
Cause im going to fast
Were going to crash
And my dreams went with him.

Arrivederci il mio amico piý dolce

You have gone further away
Yet I feel closer than ever before
Evry breath that is taken
Brings me one step nearer
To homeÖ.


Something im working on to be honest im not sure at all and wanted some unbiast opinions

One more this one has had more edits than to top one so hopefully is more refined

Falling on the wrong side

The tracks that guide me
Have gone wrong
Now im sliding
Have no where to turn

The bottles my nearest and dearest
Oh why cant someone take me home?
I smuggle and hide
Whatever I can
To help cure my craving thatís never to far
A smile on my face
Belays my heart

I donít want to make a scene,
I donít want to make a fuss,
These lies are killing my inner buety
So I lie to myself
And hope I come through
But the drink brings out the worst
And im naked for all to see


You spread your poisonous words
I lose myself first
Then my friends drop one by one
Like fire flyís die into the night
Till I donít know who is who

My skin turns battle ship grey
My hair loses its shine
You donít know how much it affects me
And will kill me for a time to come

A temporary new dawn
Lifts my heart
But the clouds drift back
As you sail once again into my heart
Even after I had fled the rut
And I felt strong
You can bring me back down

Never before had I felt pain and Fear
Scared to walk the streets~
The bottle was my escape
And my only hoe
Deep down
Hating what I had become
A friend saved me but it might not have been so

How far were you willing to go?
Would hanging be suffice?
Or just watching me drink till oblivion enough?

So joke and laugh about it now
Even I will join in
But never will I forget your lies
And deceit

Never will I give you the ammo to hurt
I pity you now
But hate still runs deep,
I wish I left you
In your pilled up state
And I mean that to this day
Instead I made you be sick, nursed you back to health
Even held you in my arms and cried in hope you would be alright
Mutterd I love you and ment it with all my soul
But you took it with a pinch of salt
Should have known then, just how selfish you could be
If only I had forsoe, the evil you would become

I can lie and say im ok
But the chasms and scars remain upon my soul
I loved you like my first

And one more very raw effort which has yet to be looked at properly -

And so I may raise my voice
In anger at others
But never in spite of you
Not ever at you

It does not mean that I donít care
That donít hold that bit of extra respect
For your feelings or your heart
Its just a explosion of frustration taken from the depths of my heart

Cause I am neither here or nor there
Times I can blow, sometimes I can sail on
Without a care in the world
For with you I am true

Without you I am never new
Your smile lights up a thousand candles within my soul
Your sob dampens them all
And make me cold inside

I cant always show what I want to show
Cause its easier to hide
But when you cry or go quiet
And I know something is wrong
I clam like a Hedgehog
Hide behind my spike

I donít want to talk,
If thatís the case I never will,
Im stubborn, im fool but thatís who I am
I can only grin and apologize
No chance of catching me either way

And now I have to bring this to a end
The night is drawing to a end and my bed is calling
So donít weap when im gone,
Be happy cause im yours
And nothing could be truer than what we have
So sleep, donít weep hold me near to your heart
For this is love, yes its true and yes itís a scare but who really will care
Except you and I, and like she said
There are 9 billion people in the world, more or less, but youíre the one, I love the most

Here is one that has no music yet, but is called The Red Pumps and The Train


I have no direction
This thing, is going backwards from
Where I came from so long ago and IÖ


Crawling round on my hands
Trying to regret my past and I
Donít see the point in it

It really had the best tunes

Taking things down in threes
Pickup trucks picking up nothing but trees
And my hands are cold in the breeze

Flowing down the station line
Rusting supports and guttural rhymes
And where words take time

They sometimes come out wro-

The call, the shout, the man
The something we canít plan
The fright, the shriek, the rain
The red pumps and the train

This has long been coming
Strumming and tripping off my
Plated tongue
Armour for my times
And acid for our drum

Something to ease it in
Something to make it paper-
Things donít turn out so interesting
Anyway
Anyway
Anyway

The call, the shout, the man
The something we canít plan
The fright, the shriek, the rain
The red pumps and the train

I have no direction
This things going backwards from
Where it came from, Iím wrong

I feed my bear, it gets stroked
And underneath its silver coat
lies

Listened to Fionn Regan for the first time today, and it inspired me to write something. It's not quite finished yet, but I like it so far!

She's on her way
She's sick of this
she says she's growing
and I think she is

Well she came round
to talk you down
She said it's over
Just not right now

All these things that I'm seeing
But I think of you
And I don't think he's being
Quite what you want him to

She loves you boy
But what you do
Could make her hate you
Me too

No I won't lie
I don't have time
I want you gone boy
Wanna call her mine

All these things that I'm seeing
But I think of you
And I don't think he's being
Quite what you want him to

maybe, in a way

if i can buzz just like the city
maybe i can buzz like the bees
and maybe, in a way, you've brought me to my knees

i've missed the boat
and that ship has sailed
but maybe, in a way, we've won and not failed

you're all i need to get me through the storm
but maybe, in a way, i'll need to battle it alone

the future will kill us all
but if i love you i might last longer
and maybe, in a way, it'll make us both stronger

i've dropped the anchor into the grey iron sea
and maybe you'll come to rescue me
but poets and ghosts have drowned here before
and i've got the key to the lock of your door
