    Acapella?

    you are a braver soul than I.


    I only sang lead on cover tunes in a band. I never sang my own stuff, much less acapella.

    If you want to hear this stuff, I can copy and send.

    I wrote none of the music, though.

    OK, you got me feeling brave here, AZ.

    I am going to post lyrics that I wrote in HS. Very simple stuff.

    They ended up being used in college. The music the guys came up with was strong, but I was never happy with the words.

    These are kind of embarrassing, but I was 16 when I wrote it, and had never actually lived with a girl, so I was just trying to imagine being bitter about that kind of a breakup. The music came later, like 1995.

    Laugh if you must. I am looking at them, and its pretty silly.

    But it was my first real attempt at lyrics, not poerty.


    I May Never

    I may never fall in love with you
    But you never close your mouth when you chew
    I may never have had it up to here
    But you always drink the last of my beer

    (Chorus)
    Caution dear, you waltz between some landmines
    I know, cause I sleep here too,
    And I guess, nevertheless, I may never celebrate you again

    I may never know the reasons for this
    But you never close your eyes when we kiss
    I may never see the light through the trees
    But you never hold your mouth when you sneeze

    (Chorus)
    Caution dear, you waltz between some landmines
    I know, cause I sleep here too,
    And I guess, nevertheless, I may never celebrate you again

    (all instruments get a small solo....very much like Steely Dan in "My Old School")

    I may never finish what I began
    But will never satisfy any man
    I may never compliment your perfume
    But you will never know another night in my room

    (Chorus)
    Caution dear, you waltz between some landmines
    I know, cause I sleep here too,
    And I guess, nevertheless, I may never celebrate you again

    Yeah, I had some awkward lyrics....


    This is why I stuck with the drums.


    Let me know of you can actually tolerate more.

    I Don't Deserve

    She can be a light
    Shining way down, way down where I sometimes go
    She wakes up in the morning
    Lost in hugs and kisses, breakfast burning on the stove

    She don't want to fight
    If you stay down, stay down, no "be it so"s
    She's knowledge of the finest kind
    Turning over answers like there is no tomorrow

    And she says "Everyone's alone, everyone's alone."
    So I say "Everyone's alone, except for you and I."
    When she says "Everyone's alone, how come everyone's alone?"
    I say everyon'e alone expect for you and I"

    I don't deserve, I don't deserve you
    And thinking about it cuts me down.....

    She stays up all night
    If she lays down, lays the down the pain will go
    She finds me on the weekend time,
    Wishing ten years earlier I'd been there to take her home

    She can be a light
    Throwing rays down, rays down into the snow
    She's shining through the winter time,
    I, endearing nothing, can't percieve a finer home

    I don't deserve, I don't deserve you
    And thinking about it cuts me down.....

    Well, since you are being brave, I will be too.

    I was in college when I helped write these. It was a collabaration between myself, the piano player and the guitarist.


    COmfort Crazy

    Eyes of mine, settle not into your chamber
    Rise and shine,pouring sun on every acre.......(it will find you)
    Firelight, fireflies, and firewater
    So in love. Go and love.


    Couldn't we be oh so comfort crazy?
    In between the grass, our toes, and a drink in our hands
    But our cinder is going out

    Cold so nice, it carries us to early autumn
    Piled high - leaves, me- buried at the bottom
    Several cries, several ordinary questions
    Solved but one, solve this one

    Couldn't we be oh so comfort crazy?
    Underneath the couch, our days collecting in strands
    Sure they've swept do far by now

    (piano solo and horn solo)

    Couldn't we be oh so comfort crazy?
    All about the sky our gaze, a night at the dam
    And we're flowing softly down.

    More Beautiful

    The Rocky Mountains are more beautiful this year,
    It's not due to the weather, it's just because your here.
    Everytime I have you standing next to me,
    everything is more beautiful to see.

    The birds in the treetops sound more beautiful this year,
    it's not due to the sunshine, it's just because your here.
    Everytime you lean and whisper in my ear,
    everything is more beautiful to hear.

    The smell of the air is more beautiful this year,
    It's not due to the flowers, it's just because your here.
    Everytime I think of just how hard I fell
    everything is more beautiful to smell.

    Everything is more beautiful this year.
    It's not due to the weather, It's just because your here.
    Having you near me bring my heart out of a lull,
    because you make everything more beautiful.
    You make everything more beautiful.

    Excuse Me

    I'm standing on the side of the road
    the cars just pass me by.
    I've got to get out of this town
    before I lose my mind.
    I never in my life ever caused her any pain,
    I only wanted to love her and for her to love me just the same.

    I saw the way he looked at her
    when we entered the cafe.
    And as we sat down at the table
    she turned back and looked his way.
    But the thing that happened next
    I'll remember till my dying day.

    When the man across the room
    walked out into the night,
    she stood up from the table
    and asked my for a light.
    she said excuse me for a minute,
    I need to make a call
    Until the next day,
    that was the last of her I saw.

    So now I'm standing on the side of the road,
    the cars just pass me by.
    I've got to get out of this town
    before I lose my mind.
    I never in my life thought I could feel this way.
    But excuse me for a lifetime, I'm leaving you today.
    Excuse me for a lifetime, I'm leaving you today.

    Not anything good, I am afraid.

    I'd have to go look them up if you are truly interested.
