COLD

1. Just like that King Lear, I’m left with a fool,
half blinded and all alone, stumbling through.

2. I see a land of shadows under a pitch black sky,
and a river of darkness on a rainy night.

It’s a cold cold night, mighty cold.
I’m lost and alone, mighty cold.

Help me please, I’m on bended knee.

3. Oh should I stay here, should I run away,
should I seek shelter and try to wait?

It’s a cold cold night, mighty cold.
I’m lost and alone, mighty cold.

Help me please, I’m on bended knee.

My Mistake (music video)

June 27, 2019

My Mistake is what happens when some break up.
This is my song #2,105 written 5-25-31-2019
(Lyrics posted on youtube video too!)
Headphones are always best!
This is not a studio recording – for purists see my 9 CD boxed set. But I don’t want to wait. I want you to hear them now, so I am posting them right away!

(There are not singles anymore, but if there were, I think this coupled with my last sci-fi song, “Dark” would make a good one. Comments?)

MY MISTAKE

I was thinking when you left me
I would go out find somebody new.

Just that easy look around me
find another just as sweet as you

Oh My mistake, Oh Silly Fool

So I looked at all the women
all around me Which one would I choose

Pretty soon I was so frustrated
They were charming but they just weren’t you.

Oh My mistake, Oh Silly Fool …

I thought if I walked away
you’d run after me.

But when I left and Turned around
No one was following me

Here I am all alone
can’t go back and nothing up ahead

I was happy when I met you
Will I ever feel that way again.

Oh My mistake, Oh Silly Fool…
