Gifted child   Leave a comment

Diana Žylienė via MirisA Song for my Child…

Your silence was dear
my ol’ gifted child
if only you knew then
how one of a kind you were

Now when I drive you home
hope you won’t break down
I shall be standing outside
When you’re ready to leave that pain behind

Oh my darling girl
my starry eyed kid
if only you knew then
You’ve got wings instead of strings

<bridge>

The people were always staring
felt wretched, now it’s okay…
Come now beneath my wings…
And share your secrets with me.

The Man Who Built Me   1 comment

He would wake so early
tune up the violin and play melody
I would be listening to his song
even before I could learn to hum
His music flowed like love in my blood
long before my face was even formed

He would come back halfway
after having left for his workplace
a red red balloon floating behind him
as I watched him eagerly from the balcony
on my giddy feet wobbling in the winter
long before I knew he was my father

He gave me an arpeggio
and taught me to surrender
my hero, he is so gentle
showed me beauty lies in the tender
He is an eternal child
giggling at this silly life
even as I struggle to analyze
He holds this sparkle in his eyes
more infectious than any wine
the man who pieced us back
with a few tears shed in agony
Who made us feel like one family
is the one who could give
everything up for peace
He’s that man who built me

He would watch his movies
crying everytime at the same scenes
He’d cover my books and polish my shoes
Cut my nails and give me algebra clues
He made sure I sang every note perfectly
Long before I saw the artist in me

He gave me a Casio
and taught me to wonder
my hero, he is so humble
Showed me love lies in the simple
He is an eternal child
innocent to its passing by
Even as I struggle to understand
what makes him feel so delighted
My world going madder everyday
the man who found us back
From the few years lost in tragedy
Who made us feel like one family
is the one who could give
his dreams up for his lady
He’s that man who built me

Stream girl   2 comments

Sometimes I wish I could run to a man
who is too old for me
and beg him to stay like only a lover can…

Sometimes I wish I could fly away
to a man with a ring
who has long strayed from that thing called marriage

Sometimes I wish I could dance all night
with an officer who once
gave me his heart that midnight in the naked moonlight

Sometimes I wish I could sail away
To an island of lilies
where I can meet all of these
And laugh, drink and talk about how we were so silly
To never have seen the lovers…
we could’ve been

I am a lady with a child’s spirit
Tried to give myself to a vase
Broke it when I gave an ocean
Now I am searching for a mountain
who could have me flowing like a stream

Stream girl…
Looking for the way downward
Hoping to get her dreams unfurled
So she could flow into a new world
Where she can live unstrung

Sometimes I wish I could live
With the man who makes me tea
who wants me to paint his walls to discover me

Love Half Here   1 comment

[stanza 1]
I wait at the café

my hands are folded
and you stare like I
must have something to say

but don’t you know I’m done
…was all this time
from being the other one

[chorus]
You can’t love half here
while your wife’s looking out
the door
we’ve been doing this the wrong way
you gotta get back home

[stanza 2]
I quietly strum my guitar

gazing out the window afar
a couple walk by the car
hand in hand like childhood sweethearts

maybe they could be you…
and her when yall were younger
Shouldn’t I have been just a stranger…?

[chorus]
You can’t love half here

while I’m looking down at
the floor
we’ve been all along the wrong way
I gotta go where I’m the only one

[bridge]
Now I’m tearing up these curtains
recovering the right side of me
letting in the sunlight
to bring you back to reality

You can’t love half here
while your daughter’s looking out
the door
we’ve been doing this the wrong way
you gotta give her back her home
