Bipolar
All this time I didn't feel right
You gave me a struggle but it wasnt my fight
I became distracted with the course of my life
It wasn't the direction, as much as the flow
The highest highs and the lowest lows
The blackest nights and the whitest glows
I stay up above or down below
The medium stays well out of sight

Good Company
You know I hate feeling sorry for myself
nothing's worse than asking for a little help
You asked me, "What can I do for you?"
I said, I would let you know as soon as I knew

All I want is a place where I belong
Filled with friendly faces, that know when something's wrong
Where I have not a thing to prove
Where there can be a me, and you

Please don't rush me when I move slow
I’ll be ready just the same, when its time to go
you asked me, "What can I do for you?"
I said, I would let you know as soon as I knew

I need you to keep the beat to my heart
I need you to leave off where i start
Show me patience when I am confused
You know I would do the same for you

Please stay with me
Hold me, closely
cause all i need is good company

All I want is a place where I belong
Filled with friendly faces, that know when something’s wrong
All I need is you to be with me
No one in the world makes me feel so free

The Caretaker
I tend my garden with watchful eyes
Not left to luck, or the sands of time
I pace these rows, and purify
Because I know, what I sow, is mine

I tend to fear what I cannot see
I feel absurd, but they're real to me
One second thought can plant a seed
A scourge will sprout, and begin to feed

My eyes are dry, and my body aches
The Sun's too high to touch my face
Vision blurs where heat radiates
Blending lines, and distorting shape

My souls on fire, my broken heart aches
The Earth is offered, for Heaven's sake
With all I need to build or break
It's up to me to strive to create

Truth's sting can hurt, but it's not unkind
Because I know, what I grow, in time
Will inspire my heart with love sublime
To pluck from my field, and share what's mine

My souls on fire, my body aches
My eyes are dry, my open palm shakes
Because I know, all I sow
If it grows, when I go, I take

Full circle
days and months
and years gone by
I never stopped
To wonder why
we thought we could
runaway that day
And somehow we could
Make our way

me? I gave up
everything
my heart was all
that I could bring
but you were hungry
for something more
wanting all, I could
never afford

friends turned enemies
turned aquaintences
Love turned to hate
turned to indifference
Now we act like we
didnt exist
chalk it up
to naive innocence

the parts of me
that were once you
Im sweating out
like a stubborn flu
I was addicted,
but i guess its true
withdrawls come from things
that're bad for you

A Man Of All Seasons
Summer time
This time is mine
I will use it to play all day
For the Sun shines down
Upon my face
I know this feeling I cant replace

Falling down
The leaves swirl round
The Air feels so cool and calm
The Sun. it shines
A little less
I feel as if we just met

Bitter cold
My Bones feel old
The Ice persists to slow me down
No Sun, no Warmth
Just Sleet and Snow
I think back to long ago

Springs back now
It’s poring down
The Rain renews the Earth again
A clear blue sky
It's just for me
Sun shine always sets me free

Get Out
I'll say it simply
Strong, and without fear
You have no place in my heart
You are not welcome here

It started with a visit
You made yourself at home
The fun was never ending
Your price was never known

I begged you to stay longer
The fun had just begun
You said, "On one condition,"
"Let me rearrange some.
"These pictures just to start,"
My memories from my heart
"And these books will have to go"
with every truth I've ever known

The walls were all knocked down
To create an echo sound
My center piece was replaced
With water in an empty vase

"There," you smiled with delight
"Now this room feels just right."
There was nothing left, I could see
You didn't leave, even one bit of me

Again I'll say it
Strong, and without fear
You have no place in my heart
You are not welcome here

Let Life Linger
Can you tell me, what's the rush?
Life's made of moments, we barely touch
I see your face as a passing blur,
A ghostly image of what you were

So much time is wasted on
Thoughts and actions, that come out wrong
We all lay claim to pure intentions
Except the times we never mention

We slowly surrender to rising doubts  
Choosing to take the easy way out
and What we stand for, is compromised
A moment’s weakness can haunt your life

The conclusion,
is all that is certain
There’s no way to predict
That final curtain
Just because you’re living,
Doesn't mean you’re alive
Cause a dreamless heartbeat,
Keeps no time
It can’t know the depths,
Where passion resides
It won’t feel hope heal,
The pain that won’t subside
Just because you’re living,
Doesn't mean you’re alive

So why are we afraid
to roll the dice?
Let’s chase our dreams,
Regardless of price
and Aim for the stars,
So we light up the night
Cause a dreamless heartbeat,
Keeps no time
It can’t know the depths,
Where passion resides
It won’t feel hope heal,
The pain that won’t subside
Just because you’re living,
Doesn't mean you’re alive

It's getting cold outside
Side splitting
Tummy tickle
Come on son
Come have a little
Fun

But I dont think
I could have another
One
One leaves me so full
When life can feel
So dull

Side splitting
Tummy tickle
Come on sir
Come have a little
Fun

We'll hope that things
are getting better
Don't you worry
About the weather
Just as long as
You can have
Some fun

Now the sun only shines for
Those that hold you close and
The earth only carries you
Because they make it so

I don't think things are
Getting better
That's why I'm wearing
This sweater

Don't get me wrong
I'd like to get along
But one can only hold out for
So long

On Love
Love's a broken thing
It never works out
It comes with a sting
To wipe you out

It will find you and hold
And you'll embrace it
You're bought and sold
You're owned by it

Love will deceive
The kindest of hearts
You'll try to believe
But it'll tear you apart

There might come that chance
Where you will slip by
Ask her to dance
And love her till you die

All the memories
The sleepless nights
All of your storys
Will make it alright

So In the end
It all seems worthwhile
You'll look over at her and
Simply smile
