Carry Me [Draft]

Well I threw it all away
As they knocked upon my door
No time now to be saved
No leniency here no more

The wind it blows out a name
But I can’t make out any words
I guess I’ll carry it to my grave
It’s more than I deserve

Oh carry me
Carry me
Carry me
Don’t let me fall

Well they’ve taken me far away
I lie bleeding on the floor
My crimes will follow to the grave
Soon my sorrows will be no more

They come and offer a last request
As I look for the sky
The noose is all that’s left
Alone I fall and cry

Oh carry me
Carry me
Carry me
Don’t let me fall

As they march me to my grave
Silence falls on the crowd
There’ll be no mercy on this day
And none should be allowed

The hood is drawn over my eyes
Yet my vision, still so clear
So tired of living with these lies
As I drop I lose my fear

Oh carry me
Carry me
Carry me
Don’t let me fall

Oh carry me
Carry me
Carry me
Don’t let me fall

Missing Pieces

 

I like to experiment with different styles and forms of music. This was an attempt at injecting some elements of metal music into my playing and writing. 

Verse:
Contemplation is the only road I know
Thrust inside your troubled mind
Inspiration across this lonely road I toe
Why’d you leave me far behind?

Chorus:
Lost a part of me
Broke inside it seems
I pick up the pieces
Miss one every time

You’ve lost a part of you
In spite of all you do
You pick up the pieces
Miss one every time
I’ve Lost a part of me
Broke inside it seems
I pick up the pieces
Miss one every time

Verse:
Thoughts grow heavy weighing further everyday
Whatever happened to the smiles?
That night in our bed never seemed so far away
Seemed no end to all these miles
Chorus:
Lost a part of me
Broke inside it seems
I pick up the pieces
Miss one every time

You’ve lost a part of you
In spite of all you do
You pick up the pieces
Miss one every time

I’ve Lost a part of me
Broke inside it seems
I pick up the pieces
Miss one every time

Solo

Chorus x2

 

Only You (Forevermore)

Give me a promise
And I’ll build you a dream

Show me the future
Maybe not all that it seems

And will you speak
The words I long to hear

It’s you, only you
Only you, now and forvermore
My heart beats, my love
Close your eyes and rest assured
I’ll be there.
When you wake from the night before
I’ll be there

Your breath whispers
Like the wind at my door

I’ll give you the key
No need for knocking
Anymore

I turn and I whisper
The words I’ve longed to speak

It’s you, only you
Only you, now and forvermore
My heart beats, my love
Close your eyes and rest assured
I’ll be there.
When you wake from the night before
I’ll be there

I’ll be there (x4)

Driving With Nick

This is a new song, unfortunately my computer is down at the moment. Recording in the future.

 

The gas gauge reading almost empty
So I whip it up to the pump
The jockey asks me says “What’ll it be?”

I says “Just fill that son of a bitch up”

So I threw that jock a fifty
Told him he could keep the change
Thundered into the night
Threadin’ in and out the lanes

Jivin’ in my old Jimmy
Kick it down onto the floor
Peel the rubber down to the rim
Let ’em eat ’til they can’t no more

Fishtail out in the street
Swerve then I pull it in tight
Send a prayer up to good St. Frances
Gonna need a guide to make it tonight

Old Nick is on my shoulder
His eyes as red as a maiden’s blush
Said “Frances Weren’t around
So with me you’ll try your luck”

The streets were nearly empty
As I pulled onto the bridge
It was just about that time
That I felt the engine give

Old Nick he started laughing
As I spun out of control
I hit the rail doing one thirty five
There was nowhere left to go

A Solitary Tear

Divide the dividends
And abscond with your crooked friends
To the island of Moreau

A beastly intrusion
I’ve shattered the illusion of
Your beauty, I fear

I’ve shed but one solitary tear
There was a time I held you dear
But I’ve let all that go

False laughter and promises
Promiscuity and dominance
Enough! Return from whence you came.

 

All That I Want

I want you to travel along
I want you to finish this song
If I had you right here
To stay by my side
Everything would be alright

Because you turn my wrongs into rights
You make both my days and my nights
You walk on the water honey
I swear that it’s true
All that I want is you

I want you to have and to hold
I want you to watch us grow old
And if you would grant me
This wish I hold dear
I’d promise to always be near

Because you turn my wrongs into rights
You make both my days and my nights
You walk on the water honey
I swear that it’s true
All that I want is you

 

Yeah, all that I want is you

You’re All That I Need (For Trisha)

The sun shines
Almost as bright as your smile
And though the path we walk
Is paved with doubts
I won’t run from
Whatever may come
You are the only one
That won’t let me down

So we’ll just stand up
Gather our plans up
We’ll walk through this world
Full of confusion
You and I against it all.

Whatever may come up
I know that we’re strong enough
We’ll take the whole world with us
Wherever we may roam

You’re all that I want
You’re all that I need
Two halves of a whole
You make me complete

You’re all that I want
You’re all that I need
You are my soul
You are my everything

You’re all that I need

The oceans are almost
As full as the heart that you hold
Each day when
We’re together or apart

And I know that your love
Feels exactly the same
Forever together we’ll weather whatever
And hold each other
wrapped in our arms (be)cause,

You’re all that I want
You’re all that I need
Two halves of a whole
You make me complete

You’re all that I want
You’re all that I need
You are my soul
You are my everything

You’re all that I need
