Driven demented by my own desire
It’s like the whole world’s on fire
And it’s burning me down to ashes
Like the glass when it smashes
When I was twenty six I didn’t know what hit me
All I know is that Jesus is with me
And each step he walks points me the way
I just need to trust in what he say
They’re not in the ground
They’re in the sky
No one you love
Can ever die

Til The Day I Die

I wonder if he ever thinks of me
It’s been years since I set him free
And it all collided into a perfect chasm
Now I look away coz I know she has him
And I don’t begrudge her the joy of the act
It’s just, you see, I want him back
And it doesn’t matter what storms my sky
I’ll still love him to the day that I die
I’m pulled like gravity to a place I don’t know
Everything is screaming don’t let go
And it’s all I can do to keep my vision straight
Live up to the promise that lays in wait
My ego takes off like a racehorse down the road
Dragging me with it wherever it goes
Oxegen was something of a revelation
They always said I was above my station
Staring into stars like that
But I’ve caught the bug and I want you back
You can’t fake that generosity 
I can see it in her eyes
Like we’ve both come across a land
Where nobody dies
I can’t keep up with it
I’ve got the fear of missing out
It’s like going to God
And being filled with doubt

Steady Easy

Life doesn't go steady easy
It plots and twists and turns 
The fire is really nothing 
Until there's something that it burns
I have to stop dancing on the lane
Someone might see through the pain
To the joy that’s underneath
Signified by my light feet
My mind is full of broken souls
Like cars flying through M50 tolls
And I stare at the green, green grass of the scene
There’s no waking up if there isn’t a dream
The hidden object of knowledge
Like a puzzle piece on the floor
Somewhat akin to knocking
On the wrong side of the door
It’s the ego that takes the battering
And now the glass is shattering
As I come apart at the seams
Pulling at the web of dreams
The waking consciousness woke me up
And it was the birth of love
The extension by degree
Of all the effervescent that is me
I can’t make a track
But I can write a beat
Do you think you could dance
To the tap of my feet

I swim my way to the shore
Full of a heart to simply adore
And the stars sparkle diamonds over my head
I see the Universe from my bed
I swim my way to the shore
Full of a heart to simply adore
And the stars sparkle diamonds over my head
I see the Universe from my bed

I’ve run so far

Away from home

And it feels

Like I am all alone

It's writing on water
All this creation
The highs and the lows
Beyond the elation 
How could my lonely ramblings
Mean anything to anyone
I just know it will not rest
Until the words are done

The Love

I'm not doing it for the likes
I'm doing it for the love
And these words just flow through me 
As though sent from above 

And I can't say a thing
About their creator
Only that they
Just radiate her 

And even when a song
Plays its own tune
It's not as though I
Am the only one in the room

And it connects threads
And it weaves so fine
It's like a tapestry
That is just mine

And I don't want to take credit
Where no credit is due
I do it for the love
And this love's for you 

As deep as the ocean

As wide as the sea

Is the reservoir

Inside of me
