the change

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

One hand reaches out
And pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
And they say “what good have you done
By saving just this one?”
It’s like whispering a prayer
In the fury of a storm

And I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

This heart still believes
That love and mercy still exist
While all the hatreds rage
And so many say
That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
It’s like trying to stop a fire
With the moisture from a kiss

And I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

As long as one heart still holds on
Then hope is never really gone

I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world we know
Never changes me

What I do is so
This world will know
That it will not change me

a friend to me

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Well you and I, we’re buddies
And we’ve been since we first met
Me and you
Well we’ve sure been through
Our share of laughter and regret

Lord knows we’ve had our bad days
And more than once we’ve disagreed
But you’ve always been a friend to me

You can be so stubborn
There’s times I think you just like to fight
And I hope and pray
I live to see a day
When you say I might be right

And there’s times I’d rather kill you
Than listen to your honesty
But you’ve always been a friend to me

You’ve always been
Time and again
The one to take my hand
And show to me that it’s okay to be
Just the way I am
With no apology

Oh you’ve always been
And you will till God knows when
Yes you’ve always been a friend to me

if tomorrow never comes

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Sometimes late at night,
I lie awake and watch her sleeping.
She’s lost in peaceful dreams,
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark.
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart?

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her?
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one?
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes?

‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there’s no second chance to tell her how I feel

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her?
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one?
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes?

So tell that someone that you love
Just what you’re thinking of
If tomorrow never comes
