Singing the Blues

I tell
Myself
I lost it all,
Dropped the ball.
So I don’t get
Emptiness
Taking
Everything away from me

I
Might be afraid
To die
That ain’t gonna make
My life
Worth any less.
And I’ll
Be singing the blues
For you.

What the hell am I s’posed to do?

Along with my poetry, I’ve posted some song lyrics that I’ve written. But I feel like it doesn’t translate as well when it’s meant for music. The words do not always carry the natural rhythm–sometimes it’s something that’s in the music.

So instead I’ve decided to post a video of me playing the song. This is a song I wrote called “What the hell am I s’posed to do?” The lyrics are below the video.


I’m scared to death that everything’s a lie.
I’m scared to find out that you don’t control my life.
I’m scared to hell that heaven’s in your eyes.
I’m tired of being scared ’cause it’s running out my life.

I look at you and you say,
“What the hell am I s’posed to do?

I will be your hell hound when you die.
I’ll be sleeping in that hole behind your eyes.
I’ll be running until everything’s alright.
I’ll keep running till I reach the fucking sky.

I look at you and you say,
“What the hell am I s’posed to do?”
When I woke up you said,
“I will run away from you.”

I look at you and you say,
“What the hell am I s’posed to do?”
When I woke up you said,
“I will run away from you.”

Oh, what the hell am I s’posed to do?

Chasing Blue Skies Away

I know the calm before the storm,
getting ready for the worst.
Don’t wanna spend the rest of my days
chasing blue skies away

I get these blues every day
and I know they’re here to stay.
What the hell you want me to say,
chasing blue skies away?

I’ve got no hopes or dreams,
everyday I know it seems
that something else is gonna
chase my blue skies away

I never learn from my mistakes,
all my life it’s gonna take.
Never wanna see your face
chasing blue skies away

Now I’m going on back home
even though I live alone.
Ain’t gonna let nobody
chase my blue skies away.

No words

Slow down
’cause I don’t need your words
No, they would ruin me
lord
I don’t need your words
I don’t need no words

Moonlight
Sun falls from the sky
Go on and burn me
Alive
’cause I don’t need your words
I don’t need no words

You don’t understand me

New life
Poison in the soul
It eats right through me
Slow
I will leave this world
I don’t need no words

Find me
Further up the road
Faces haunting me
In my sleep
I don’t need no girl
I don’t need no words

Slow down
’cause I don’t need your words
No they would ruin me
lord
I don’t need your words
I don’t need no words

Sweet September

Skip the start, into the end
I’ll be long gone with the wind,
Waiting here again

Don’t believe the things you see,
It’s a faded memory
of a life you never lived

I’m just a shadow of a broken heart
and an empty mind
Left behind

Take a step into the wind
To see me once again
I’ll be fighting till the end

Ain’t no easy way to die
I cannot hear you cry
’cause i been gone away

Now i’m trapped under your rain
I’m soaked up with your pain
Another broken world

Forever i am lost in space
I do not have a face
I cannot fill the void

Evil sins fell off the noose
Troubles on the loose
Today is yesterday

So wake me up before we die
Keep me guessing why
We’re always years away

Forget the sweet september song
It’s gone before to long
Ain’t nothin else to say

Your Sweet September’s gone
Another lonely summer song

You go away

I want to say
I’m not afraid
of everything.
I’m torn and frayed.

I want to say
I’ll fade away
from yesterday.
I can’t escape.

I sold my soul,
long time ago,
It’s grown so old.
I want no more.

I want to go
where no one knows
time overflows.
I want to go.

I won’t come back,
I’ll never last.
I can’t face that
I won’t come back

I can’t chase dreams,
I never sleep.
I just can’t see
I’m in too deep

You go away,
don’t know your name,
but love your face.
Why won’t you stay?

You go away,
I never say
how much you make
my sunny days.

You go away.

Lonely birds

A lonely bird leaving home for the winter
Lost himself in tears along the way
Who am I, where is hope when I need it?
Never turning back, flying away

The vast and empty sky stares at the sea
Reflections show such a difference
How do I know things I see are real?
Insecurities make too much sense

Our lonely bird has now fallen from grace
Our lonely bird flied defiantly instead
His only last regret was perfection
Perfecting imperfection every day

And on the day he died, no one noticed
Not a tear that ever would be shed
’cause lonely birds fly solo for a reason
We only see loneliness once they’re dead

Now the sky, so empty, dreads the season
Another lonesome victim falls from grace
Loneliness a disease to be stricken
To everyone in every single place

A lonely bird abandons his whole world
To fly away from home, where he has heard
Happy days await those who are patient
As for us, we’ll just be lonely birds
