New Song: “The Wrong Side”

I’m stuck here on the wrong side of the Earth,
Far away from all that I love true.
I’m in Tokyo or Seoul, Bangkok or Saigon,
But I’d rather be home languishing with you.

I know we’ve had our disagreements, dear.
But now I’m in an unfamiliar place.
I’m in boats, hotels and trains, houses, shacks and planes.
And sometimes you know I miss your angry face.

Oh, what a horrible life!
We always have such poisonous things to say.
Oh, what a beautiful night!
Thinking back I wonder why I ever walked away.

I’ve found some ways to occupy my time.
I try to stay distracted with the new.
I have wandered stranger streets, tried every kind of sweet,
But still I can’t forget the taste of you.

What’s it like when you don’t see me there?
Heard you’ve been trying to move along.
You’ve got boys and girls for miles, to keep you for awhile,
But do you miss me when you lay alone?

Oh, what a horrible life!
We always have such poisonous things to say.
Oh, what a beautiful night!
Now I just remember,
You didn’t ask me to stay.

I’m stuck here on the wrong side of the Earth.
What we had may be forever gone.
So I’ll pine away the nights, in these city lights,
But I know that you will never call me home.

New Song: “No Way Home”

I know it’s not exactly novel writing, but I’m trying to put together my EP, “The Owl,” this year. This is the first song.

Ain’t no way now to come back home.
Everything that I know is gone.
I’ll never see those familiar stones.
Ain’t no way now to come back home.

Left the land for a distant shore,
And they won’t see me forevermore.
All I’ll know is toil and war.
Left the land for a distant shore.

I want to fly in the clouds above.
I want to see my own true love,
But she won’t know me, stained with blood.
I want to fly in the clouds above.

Ain’t no way now to come back home.
I’ve fallen into the great unknown.
Maybe that’s where they’ll bury my bones.
Ain’t no way now to come back home.
