Last of the Light

W139

Be Here

Used to think you were a ghost

Haunting my house

Crawling these walls

I would hear you in my dreams

Couldn’t love you more

In spite of it all

You don’t have to do anything

You don’t have to be anyone – Just be here

You don’t have to say anything

You don’t have to be anyone – Just be here

I’m leaving tonight

I’ll say goodbye

And be on my way

They say nothing lasts forever

Ain’t that the truth

Somehow it feels okay

You don’t have to do anything

You don’t have to be anyone – Just be here

You don’t have to say anything

You don’t have to be anyone – Just be here

But I already miss you

You haven’t left yet

I’m dragging my heels

I’ll build an altar

To the life we never had

To someone I’ll never feel

I used to think that you were real

A part of this world

Made of flesh and bone

Something I could hold

Wouldn’t float away

Tethered like a stone


Billie

I’m only guilty and complicit

In taking my time, I’ve committed no crime now

Hey

You’re gonna watch me
Walk away from this fight, if it isn’t feeling right

Hey

I’m gonna rewrite this fable
Time to turn the tables, gonna end up on top now

Hey, hey, hey-hey.

I’m just fine here without you, not waiting on a man

The girls they understand
Like a melody forgotten
On an old turntable, that’s playing “Lady in Satin”

Some things needn’t ever change

I’ll sing what I want to, sing what I got to

Hey, hey, hey-hey


Falling

You’re watching me

Bursting completely apart

I’m so exposed

My head and my delicate heart

If there is a parachute

It’s missing the string – I’m falling free

Scenes flying by

So blurry and unknowable

Can’t concentrate

Feeling this push and pull

I’m a fettered fool

Playing at schoolyard rules

But a fool like me

Fell for you – too easily

I’m having dreams

I can’t begin to understand

A boat is on fire

As I watch from cool white sand

 A plane flies overhead

Writing your name – In graceful smoke

 I need a sign

A beacon to right this wayward ship

My mind unfurls

Loosens it’s tenuous grip

 I’m a fettered fool

Playing at schoolyard rules

But a fool like me

Fell for you – too easily


Forget the Clock

On top is the feeling I’ve got and I know I’m strong

I sang all my doubts away and now they’re gone

Oh, I feel brand new

Play my favorite song, makes me want to dance

Won’t you come along, you got to move something

Here we all belong, point your hands to the ceiling

Inhibition’s gone, this is truly living
We are not alone

Tic-toc, forget the clock, let’s stay ’til dawn

Leave all your worries behind, cross this Rubicon

We are all brand new

Play my favorite song, makes me want to dance

Won’t you come along, you got to move something

Here we all belong, point your hands to the ceiling

Inhibition’s gone, this is truly living
We are not alone

Knock-knock, the door’s unlocked, let ‘em all in

Don’t you feel the start of something, let it begin

We are all brand new

Play my favorite song, makes me want to dance

Won’t you come along, you got to move something

Here we all belong, point your hands to the ceiling

Inhibition’s gone, this is truly living
We are not alone


Lightening

Everything is different now except for the stars

And you’re staring upwards as though it’s not far

Anyone would struggle given your course

You’re in trouble that’s for sure

 I know that you have lost your way

All the details seem insane

I can barely say my name

I will help you just the same

 Everywhere that you can see floating through the sky

Scattered in the night air embers from a fire

Let it all drift away seep out of your pours

Feel yourself lightening you don’t need it anymore

 I know that you have lost your way

All the details seem insane

I can barely say my name

I will help you just the same

I will help you just the same


Morning Sun

There’s a warmth about you, as you wake up in the morning sun

It follows you throughout the days halcyon
So sonorous, satiated by the sound of your voice
From your lips, my name escapes and my spirit will rejoice

You make it so, you make it so

You make it so, you make it so

We sleep in, and shadows stretch across the walls

Overcoming insecurity as the shadow crawls

Understanding, that it’s we that make it so
You make it so, you make it so

You make it so, you make it so

There’s a calm about you, that eases my restless, wandering mind

You keep it simple, residing where luck and faith align

Inebriated, from drinking in your perfect face
I’m hung over and holding on to your embrace

You make it so, you make it so

You make it so, you make it so

We’re deep in, our stories merging into one

The softest light is cast from the morning sun

Ever expanding, it’s we that make it so
You make it so, you make it so

You make it so, you make it so


Someday

Someday I’ll get tired of endlessly running in place
Someday I will surprise them all, the darkest horse in this race

As the moon pulls the tide, there’s something out there for me

I can hear the call
I will do what I want to, my life’s not a fait accompli

Insecurity, I’ll leave you at the door

Someday I want to paint these walls with every color I can name

Someday you will recognize this spark’s become a flame

Everyone in the world is a shell and a pearl
Deep down inside
I will sing what I want to, I know my voice will be heard

Unequivocally, this I know is true

Someday, someday
Yeah, someday I’ll burn long, I’ll burn bright


Troubadours

Troubadours sing through my walls

And straight into me

Troubadours take me to the floor

I go down like a submarine

Why are they begging me to lose myself so easily

When I have tried desperately to curb these tendencies

Troubadours they will explore

My wounds and my flaws

They sneak into my house at night

Like a drunken Santa Claus

How are they controlling me

I’m a feather in their wind

Rattling my rusty cage shaking my leafless limbs

You sang so hard

I burst apart

You made teeth marks

On my weak heart

Everything I’ve ever seen

Plays across my mind

Everyone I’ve ever known

Burns away in time

Why are they haunting me invading all my dreams

Keeping me from moving free eroding self esteem

Troubadours infect my core

Tear down my defense

I am just a casualty

Caught in circumstance

How can I repair my myself spiraling this way

I will gather all my breath and blow it far away


Unwound

Winter’s got me feeling so much older

When did each day become so small?

Bathe me in the last of the light

Like the cat basking in the windowsill

Things will come unwound

I’ll be holding my ground

My faith can not be divided

Even if I am sometimes misguided

My life it will not be static, I am finding my way

So long I’ve come and I will not stop now

I showed my hand, I laid my cards on the table

This boat is full, I’m docking while I’m still able

Through the haze, I see shapes emerging

And every wish I made came true

When things will come unwound

Here I’ll stay, holding my ground
