“Skipping Stones”

December 11, 2017

In the past I let things slip by

Always letting sleeping dogs lie

I don’t think I can take your skipping stones

Floating to the bottom to their new home

 

Nowadays I  know why

I can’t help but enjoy watching them sigh

I don’t think I can take your skipping stones

Floating to the bottom to their new home

 

And that heart that rivals the ocean

Ruins the placidness with emotion

I don’t think I can take your skipping stones

Floating to the bottom to their new home

 

Soon a wave turns into fire

Backed by the air and untamed desire

I don’t think I can take your skipping stones

Floating to the bottom to their new home

 

Sooner or later we all have to stick our fingers in the earth

Marvel at the wonders that come from the dirt

I don’t think I can take your skipping stones

Floating to the bottom to their new home

 

They all pile up and I carry them in my head

I keep replaying what you said

I don’t think I can take your skipping stones

Floating to the bottom to their new home

 

“Between You & Me”

December 1, 2017

the kiss

(1st Verse)

I know that I have someone

Who understands parts of me

That other people don’t know exist

With you in my life I have everything

(Chorus)

Between you & me

Between you & me

I love you more than anything

In this whole world

In this old world

In this whole world

In this old world

Between you & me

Between you & me

I love you more than anything

(2nd Verse)

Everything in this whole world

Seems better when I’m with you

Bad things are only half as bad

Because I know I can count on you

(Chorus)

Between you & me

Between you & me

I love you more than anything

In this whole world

In this old world

In this whole world

In this old world

Between you & me

Between you & me

I love you more than anything

(Bridge)

Ever since we first held hands

Your eyes told me you understand

Now our hearts beat between our chests

We share this life how we know best

(Chorus)

Between you & me

Between you & me

I love you more than anything

In this whole world

In this old world

In this whole world

In this old world

Between you & me

Between you & me

I love you more than anything

Lyrics: Keith Corcoran, Evan Darragh, and Hallmark

Downloaded Apple’s free Music Memos App. It’s pretty cool. I normally just use the voice memos app, but I discovered this app tells you what chords you are playing and also lets you add drums and bass at the simple click of a button.

“Sings About Home”

November 16, 2017

Lights slowly bleed in the darkened theatre

Coughs and clearing throats and laughs and tears getting nearer and nearer

The boss turning into a king himself sings about home

An acoustic guitar, a pic, a slide, a voice, words, a bride, a grand piano, a glass of water, and an audience

Act as his throne

Drums are like clothes because without them this feels naked

The horns are for dancing and for waking

Unamplified voice of a rock star feels like a whisper

This is the great white way story of a Monmouth County mister
