At 7:15


Standing room only

A stage just for one

It’s true that only the lonely

Has a continuous run

 

Telling jokes and getting smiles

Even the laughs can be mean

Come nighttime are the trials

Lights go out at 7:15

 

Cheers and applause

Sometimes cut so deep

Break all the rules make your own laws

Pray to God your soul to keep

 

Like clockwork it’s a rut

Praying for fame and fortune like a teen

When the time has come, there’s but

Look and listen for your cue at 7:15

 

Is there someone

You’d like to pay homage to

Then again, there’s really no one

Who can do the things you do

 

At least you think it’s true

 

Give and receive

It all comes in green

The show must go on and you must deceive

Trying to sell your soul at 7:15

 

 

To Say That


I want to say that

Everyone’s a winner

But that wouldn’t be true

At least

The way I want to tell you

And show you

How much truth there is

Would you even care?

I don’t really care

Because I can honestly say

I want to say that

Everyone’s a winner

But that wouldn’t be true

At least

The way I want you to hear it

From the mouths of babes

Virginal to delicate handling

Of something so delicate

But then you’d break something

Again

And again

Until any love left would be numb

To have succumbed

To the fact that

You can have worthless lessons

In life

And that

One experience can cost a life

And a life can cost

Love

And in the end

It is the one who was loved the most

That wins

For to have wanted to love

wins second place

 

I just wanted to say that

So, if I leave


If I leave

I need to know that you

will be cared for

That you’ll never forget

you were my reason for living

And when you take a look in

the mirror

you’ll see a little of me in you

 

Toss your hair back

Throw yourself a smile

Let the world see what you’re giving

You’re still my reason for living

 

If I leave

I need to see you being good

to you

That you know how to really smile

Feeling that it’s all worthwhile

 

And if I have to leave

I hope there’s enough time

for me to live

To introduce tomorrow to today

What a more perfect way

to be able to say

So, if I leave

Will you remember what I did

Though I wish more of the good

than the bad

But will you remember what I did

 

Make me more than just a name

that carries all the shame

Remember what I did

Remember

Don’t make me more than I was

Just remember me because

of love

 

So, if I leave

I hope you do believe

I gave it my all

When only seasons change

Feelings remain the same

And words sometime break the fall
