See Me


I hear voices

But no one’s home

All these choices

Yet still, I’m all alone

 

Tell Me

Am I bothering You?

I can still see

Why You can’t tell the truth

 

Do You want me to go

Or let You shout it out?

Feeling so low

Why should I do without?

 

Can’t You touch me

Like You used to?

Still Your Baby

Looking to be Your shoe

Will You ever whisper

Sweet things like You used to?

Whisper Baby, Whisper

In this room built for two

 

I know You don’t know it

But, I was leaving anyway

Couldn’t make it fit

So I convinced myself to stay

 

Now, I see You got something on Your mind

No need to fight with yourself

You’re about to run out of precious time

‘Cause I’m about to start seeing somebody else

 

See Me

Always

See Me

Feel Me

Always

See Me

I Retreated


I retreated
Going backwards and cleaning up
what I wanted
needed
to leave behind
All that baggage
for someone else’s door
Those true brave souls
As if God said, “Okay.”
To throw it all away
would have made for a better day
A way to start anew
Amidst the chosen few
So, I still have pity
to wallow through
To see it again now
To see it again then
It reminds me
that I can’t run
I retreated
Again

When the sun doesn’t shine


Ain’t no way

I can stay away from you

Longer than a day

That just changes my dream come true

 

Hearing your voice on the phone

You tell me everything’s fine

I miss your daytime kisses at home

I wish you could do that when the sun doesn’t shine

 

Even though I know where you are

Being apart tears me apart

You take the moon and stars so far

away I can’t feel my heart

 

Though I know you’ll be back

You’ve still been gone far too long

It’s sheer ecstasy I lack

When you return to me, you’ll right this wrong

 

Can’t wait for your return

Cause I’m walking a fine line

It’ll be such a cool burn

To kiss you when the sun doesn’t shine

 

(Casket) Ready


Adieus bidded

Pictures painted

Two hours on this stage

Still performing

Until

no makeup is needed

Even answering to Freddy

lets you know you

are funeral ready

At any time

In any place

You are

Because you have made amends

 

How can there be sorrow

when yesterday

they all looked forward to

a better tomorrow

Sometimes they never knew

you were bidding adieu

Then again

Neither did you

 Those fond memories

Oh how

they linger on
