Angel of The Night

” Angel of the night “

 

An empty rockin’ chair

knitting basket by the table

a setting sun casting shadows on

old hands no longer able

a faded silhouette she starts to cry

and just outside her window

cars are passing by

only time will console her.

Across the way in a bar room

at a table in the corner

he nods his head at the barman

as the waitress take his order

an ashtray full of cigarettes disguise

the constant state of fear

that he holds inside

he could end up his life all alone here.

 

Sweet angel of the night

if you can hear my call

oh won’t you spread your wings

please try to help us all

help us to understand

that if we give a hand

then we might save a fall.

Sweet angel of the night

if you can hear my plea

then be our guiding light

so all the world can see

can see that if we start

to open up our hearts

then there’s a chance for peace.

 

The streets outside are so cold now

we behave like total strangers

we hang our heads never smiling

acting like we’re all in danger

pretending we can take it all in stride

caught up in the struggle

trying to survive

we’re so lost, there’s no hope

there’s no joy here…

 

Sweet angel of the night

if you can hear my call

oh won’t you spread your wings

please try to help us all

help us to understand

that if we give a hand

then we might save a fall.

Sweet angel of the night

if you can hear my plea

then be our guiding light

so all the world can see

can see that if we start

to open up our hearts

then there’s a chance for peace.

I’m Yours

I’m yours

Well you’ve done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
and now I’m trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I’ll be giving it my bestest
Nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some

I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours


Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing, we’re just one big family
It’s our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I’m sure


There’s no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours

Do you want to, come on, scootch over closer dear
And I will nibble your ear

I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed
I guess what I’ll be saying is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue


But I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find that the sky is yours
so please don’t, please don’t, please don’t.
There’s no need to complicate
‘cause our time is short
This oh, this oh, this is our fate, I’m yours
