Out there in the cold
being lonely, getting old....
can you feel me?
Standing in the aisles
with itchy feet, and fading smiles....
can you hear me?
Out there on your own
sitting naked by the phone....
would you touch me?
With your ear against the wall
waiting anxiously for me to call....
would you hold me?
Out there lost without a soul
always doing what you're told....
will you love me?
Don't let'em bury us tonight
don't give up without a fight....
do you want me?
Don't tell me - theres no hope at all
together we stand
divided we fall!!!!
From the LEATHER JOURNAL
The Love Song
As the tears slide slowly down her cheeks
She wonders how it all went so wrong
The happy days and wonderful nights
What happened to their love song
The laughter has turned to sorrow
The world has turned black and gray
The love song has lost its melody
And her life is slowly fading away
She searches for an answer
One that will calm her fears
Can the love song be recovered
Or will she forever cry her tears
ALTHOUGH WE'RE APART
I'M NEVER REALLY APART FROM YOU....
EVEN THOUGH DISTANCE SEPARATES US
AND TIME FINDS US ON OUR OWN
EVERYDAY I SENSE THAT
WE ARE TOGETHER,
IN DAYLIGHT OR IN DREAMS,
FOR KINDRED SOULS LIKE OURS
CAN NEVER TRUELY SEPARATE.
BEING APART FROM YOU
IS SOMETHING I CANNOT BE......
ARE A PART OF ME
Everyone asks something - no one's love is free...
So here is my admission...what I ask of thee...
Just sit back and listen, save your answer for the end...
This is what I ask of you, the price to be my friend...
Don't always be a smiling face that grins from ear to ear,
There are times when so much 'cheerful' is a bit too much to bear,
And I know that those eternal smiles are often a blatent lie,
A smokescreen promise from someone that just doesn't care to try.
When it hurts, let me know...and we will cry together,
And when I hurt, just hold my hand - pain never lasts forever,
Paint your body and howl at the moon, if that's what you want to do,
But give me the chance to join in your dance, and howl a little too.
Don't try to hide the light and dark of you,
Don't expect judgement from me on what you do,
Be who you are, in truth to the core,
If you are honest with me I will only love you more.
The road is long and covered with pain,
But also leads to so much we can gain,
Walk with me, friend - the going might be slow,
But lean on me, I'll lean on you...and we'll see just how far we can go...

I WANT TO STAND WITH YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN
I WANT TO BATHE WITH YOU IN THE SEA
I WANT TO LIVE LIKE THIS FOREVER
UNTIL THE SKY FALLS DOWN OVER ME....
