I want to know why You wanted to go


 

Beside my bed

Is a brown-eyed dresser

These voices in my head

Should make me the Professor

 

It would take so much more

Just to find the right door

I guess I’m going through a phase

Of Jungle Boogie or School Days

 

Did I read the wrong signs?

Are there thorns in my eyes?

I’m just a lover of all kinds

Helping others see different skies

 

I need to know

Why you wanted to go

Tell Me

Don’t show me

I may not want to join the cast of your show

I need to know

Why you wanted to go

 

Trippin’

There were times I felt like slippin’

Dippin’

There were times I couldn’t stop drippin’

Flippin’

Only you can stop me from trippin’, slippin’, dippin’,

Drippin’

Almost got me crippin’ and hippin’

 

So, I need to know

Did you find a brighter light

That makes you want to go

In a new direction of right?

 

I need to know

 

Strawberries and cream

Passion fruit made of tears at your seam

If you couldn’t shame hang

Why come in for the bang?

 

I need to know

Why you wanted to go

‘Cause if you need to leave

Give me time to grieve

 

Tissues for your Issues


Like a flattering bathing suit

compliments were hurled at you

With reassurances at hand

I reached out and felt the grandstand

Senryus formed on your behalf

Like nursing a new baby calf

My sweet honey you did suckle

Soon the noose formed a belt buckle

The pity parties given without invitation

Later chastised your bleak indignation

Then I opened the box to dry you off

But a buried boned appeared when you coughed

Did I tickle your fancy

like King Necromancy?

Or did you see me as devil

way below your level?

It didn’t take a sleuth

to find the truth

You did it all yourself

by bringing down the shelf

Tissues for your issues are made just right

Perfectly packed though not air-tight

Better in a one-piece

To not show a tear or a crease

The sharks want you to swim

You should be used to them

 

Your Husband Doesn’t Have To Know


Holding hands

And walking through the park

Each other’s greatest fan

See the back door after dark

 

A careful ring

With a special tone

Oh, how you make my heart sing

Why must either one of us be alone

 

I know he got you

But he doesn’t make your love flow

Believe me when I say this much is true

Your husband doesn’t have to know

 

The way you slip in and out

Of the things you bought with his card

Make me love what this is all about

Can it get any more hard

 

Break my back

Make me lose my mind

Never treat you like some halftime snack

The deeper I go, I never know what I’ll find

 

Keep it tight, and keep it right

I can taste the flavor in the air

Don’t let your head put up a fight

I’ll cherish our time with tender loving care

 

I love to love you, baby

How else can I let my feelings show

I’ll keep it on the sneak tip, if you want me to

And darling, your husband doesn’t have to know

 

And if you have any doubt

Go ahead and tell him I’m just a friend

He’s the one with all the clout

But we know how this tale will end

Call My Stand In


What does it take

To keep your love

What a good pair we make

Like hand and glove

 

Don’t my kisses do right

Sometimes I can’t begin

Before we start to fight

Go head call my stand in

 

I see you there

But I can’t see your face

You want to be somewhere

Just not here, but some other place

 

If I can’t do right by you

How can I win

I know what you can do

Call my stand in

 

Somebody knows

How your wind blows

It’s a shame it ain’t me

It’s all gone oh so wrong

Shame on me, way too long

Was I that blind I couldn’t see?

 

But now, I know the game you play

Some might call it a sin

Why should I let you get away

When you can just call my stand in
