Slow Songs

Our song plays and time stops.
It’s just me and you. We dance
all night as our light slowly burns.
Your eyes say more than you
know. I must know how you feel.
This is real. The DJ plays a slow song
and I fall in love again. It must be
our song. I can’t be wrong. Our song
plays. We hold each other. We rock
back and forth into the night
as we share this dance for the rest
of our days, the rest of our life.

Cruise Control

I shift gears. I run past
mirrors fast. I just go.
Ya know? I will not lie;
I can fly. I can jump high
Sometimes I don’t ask
why. I must be on autopilot.
I am not driving the car
that got me far. The car
must be driven and not left
on cruise-control. Just know
my car will carry my soul
after the tank becomes full.

Happy Daze

Things can change quickly.
Life just goes and goes.
One day, I’ll miss this.
Or I won’t, who knows?
One day, I’ll look back
on this happy day.
I’ll pick up the slack.
There’s no time to play.
Our time is slipping.
My heart is ripping.
It’s all part of life.
Days turn into nights.
Please leave on the lights.
I must reach new heights.
It doesn’t’ matter
if dreams are shattered.
I climb all ladders
because it matters.
I’ve been in a maze
for all of my days.
I must find a way
cuz’ I cannot stay.

Look Up

Do not stare at your feet
when there is a sky above.
Do not stare and weep
when there is endless love.
Look up and see the sky.
Look at birds dance and sing.
Look up and try to fly.
You deserve everything.
There is a life ahead.
You must get off the ground.
Fly away from all the dread
and away from all the sound.
Look up and chase the sky
before all your dreams die.
Look up and wave goodbye
to me before you fly.
