Too little, two face

Too little, two face

01b5b1b687028700bc66fc11f540fcba

You must lie in the bed, that you have made?

Maybe that’s why I always slept on the couch.

Made it easier to go, as I had never stayed,

ask any of my Ex’s and they’ll bitterly vouch.

There was never a need, to even kick off my boots,

before the sun could rise, I was out the back door.

Never gave enough time to plant my own roots,

treated love as a dried up flower, I never cared for.

The more they would hold on, to a precious moment,

the harder I would work, to erase it completely.

Beating you down like an unworthy opponent,

after tears run dry, you’ll wish you didn’t meet me.

As cliche’ as it is, the saying goes, “too little, too late”

It doesn’t even matter that I am different now.

It just wasn’t meant to be, thank goodness for fate,

in a way, I helped you, if you can believe that somehow.

As we all take the bad, which outweighs the good,

no matter how good the good was, it is completely forgotten.

I can repaint the trash, even convert to the priesthood,

in the end, the truth is, this boy was downright rotten.

All a Dream…..

you said you feel like when you wake up this will all be a dream

when I look into your eyes well I can see what you mean…

how could this feel so good, in such a short little time

well, give me a little more, and girl I’ll make you mine…..

You bring that, summer feelin’ though it’s months away

just seein’ that smile brings a brighter day….

from a simple “good mornin'”

to a, “how do you do?”.

well even better yet…

I’ll drop an “I miss you.”

(.. and it’s all right…..   it feels just right…..)

I can’t tell if it’s something in the way you move

or the way you look back, as you walk across the room

act like you don’t know what you’re doin’

though you do it so well

if God could only see what I was thinkin’

well he would damn me to hell

You bring that, summer feelin’ though it’s months away

just seein’ that smile brings a brighter day….

from a simple “good mornin'”

to a, “how do you do?”.

well even better yet…

I’ll drop an “I miss you.”

(.. and it’s all right…..   it feels just right…..)

you said you feel like when you wake up this will all be a dream

well it’s not your Broadway play, it’s not the end of my scene

but if you happen to roll over and you find it’s not me..

well than shhh, and try to go back to sleep, we’ll meet in your dreams

You bring that,.. summer feelin’ though it’s months away

just seein’ that smile brings a brighter day….

from a simple “good mornin'”

to a, “how do you do?”.

well even better yet…

I’ll drop an “I love you.”

(.. and it’s all right…..   it feels just right…..

cause’ it’s allll  right…. it feels juuust right….. )

I’ll be dancin’

Well, a guy once told a good friend of mine, that if he died that day it would be a good day for dying.  Well, I know.  And you know.  That he didn’t mean every word that he was saying, no.

Cause’ if I’d wake up tomorrow.  I’d be happy like a pig in shit, and that is just what I would be in.  But I won’t sit here and quit.  I know people would like to follow, cause’ I’d be dancin’… I hope you like moving your shoes.

I’d like to dance with you.

Let’s go back to who’s to blame.  Well, you smiled and you told me that you loved me just the same…  I can’t tell you what’s in store.  But, I leave you with a little, and you’re always coming back for more…  You are back for more. Yeah?

Cause’ if I’d wake up tomorrow.  I’d be happy like a pig in shit, and that is just what I would be in.  But I won’t sit here and quit.  I know people would like to follow, cause’ I’ll be dancin’… I hope you like moving your shoes.

I’d like to dance with you.
