Just Be  🙂

slipping away, fading fast
about to lose my grasp
clinging to a yesterday
it's gone
a tender kiss, the ocean blue
the innocence of youth
unrelenting gravity
it's wrong

the brevity, the expectation
the ardency, the realization
a life of learning far behind the curve
a sense of knowing, then exploding
un-controling, so annoying
all the swimmers quit without a word

Time keeps marching with the age
My mind is an ever turning page
Try to skip ahead
But the plot will never change

serenity, floating weightless
sink or swim, defeat is tasteless
the ocean doesn't care
I see
catch a wave, catch some rays
count the stars, count the days
love me if you're lucky
just be

the brevity, the expectation
the ardency, the realization
a life of learning far behind the curve
a sense of knowing, then exploding
un-controling, so annoying
Oh, but all will stop for just a word

Time keeps marching with the age
My mind is an ever turning page
Try to skip ahead
But the plot will never change

Love me if you're lucky
Just be

Amazed but unphased by the changing world

Enraged but not caged

Dismayed how it has changed.

I can hear this like a Doors song. An eerie trip with a hypnotic vibe in the background.

I like this a lot, Tony. I've always enjoyed your more lyrical, less angry stuff. Not a wasted word here. I agree it needs a light touch musically. Could be special.

Actually, I was hoping you might be willing to help with that Phoebe... You see, with my voice, "love me if your lucky" will always sound Creapy lol... So, please, if you are inspired... take it for a spin! Perhaps we can work together on recording  🙂

I'd love to give it a shot! Are you thinking acoustic guitar? And are there any chord progressions in your head so far?

I'm pretty sure that Phoebe will do a much better job of this than I could. Looking forward to hearing it. 🙂

I always write with at least a rhythm/tempo in mind... but, with my limited vocal range, the chord progressions are always pretty much the same lol. All I'm suited for these days is blues rock, but what I hear in my head is more than that... So, I don't want to make the mistake of steering you in the wrong direction here. You have a much better voice than I do so... BE FEARLESS! There are no wrong answers! Let me hear where this lyric takes YOU! No pressure  🙂

Here's a hint... try a slow waltz.... hold your notes, don't rap!  😉
