while you wait

while you’re waiting for something to happen
while you’re waiting for god
while you’re waiting for past contentment
while you’re waiting for the bus

while you’re waiting for truth and freedom
while you’re waiting for trust
while you’re waiting for questions answered
while you’re waiting for love

1 can see you self destructing
1 …m asking for time
1 can see you in quiet desperation
1 …m screaming inside

rpt 1st verse

1 can see you secretly smiling
1 …m searching for words
1 can see you looking for your marbles
1 …m juggling with swords

1 can see you in a twisted playground
1 can see you start to unfold
1 can see you in lonely conversation
1 can see you childishly old

rpt 1st verse……

The Song Is Mine

i know i haven’t written for a while

now the words begin to flow

my muse is here reminding me

do you know something i don’t know

 

don’t let the words evaporate

lost in the mists of time

not cast upon the ocean

the song is kept, the song is mine

 

thanks again my old friend

glad you passed my way

i think you left me something here

hope i’ve said what you might say

yea i’m glad you passed my way

hope i’ve said what you might say  rpt;

the song is kept , the song is mine   rpt;
