My Slice
*Inspired by a quote from my friend John Bull.

The day is done
The setting sun
Fireflies and children

My wife has won
My heart again
For the millionth time

And I can see
Life has been good to me

Just let it be
The rest is all so easy

It’s been magic, tragic, stochastic, fantastic
And from here on out it’s all just icing
And from here on out I’m just revising
What I’ve already sung
And from here on out it’s icing

Rising sun
Morning begun
The chaos begins

Kids have grown
Where did it go
Drifting through time

And I can see
Life has been good to me

Just let it be
Watching the world spin free

It’s been magic, tragic, stochastic, fantastic
And from here on out it’s all just icing
And from here on out I’m just revising
What I’ve already sung
And from here on out it’s icing
Painting A Wall

I’m painting this wall
On a step ladder and I might just fall
Too fat and a bit too old
Or so I have been told

And if I were to suddenly unfold
I would just end up cold
Hidden and alone
Or so I have been told


Since I left that town
Nobody seen me round
And that’s cause I have found
The secret in the sound
Of tears and dust and rain
Fear and trust and pain
There never will be clarity
Nature offers us no flattery
And still we ask how we got here

Though it is very clear


I’m painting this wall
And it’s raining outside
One day perhaps we will all
Find ourselves empty of our pride

And when I may die
I wonder what story others would be sold
Of a lonely man who tried to hide
Or so you'd think you were told


Please Know

Day by day there’s love
In every word you say
But when my deeds get in the way
Then on my knees I pray
If you could see a way
To allow a small ray
Of your light shine on me
Because I love you

Am I a worthy man
Do whatever I can
Try and make a stand
Work hard as I can
And slowly understand
Think back on how it all began
When your light shone on me
Please know I love you

Universe

We’ve come so far
We don’t need to be alone any longer
Look to the stars
Out there find so much to wonder

Reach for your skies
The helplessness of becoming stronger
Look into your eyes
They show a depth to life beyond the skies


Come down with me
Let it all go and you’ll see
Embracing your lonely soul
The universe ebbs and flows


Quiet now my love
Feel the embrace of the stars
Peaceful is the night
Flowing liquid of etherial meanings

A soul left behind
Never saw there was light in the sky
Can any of us find
The true nature of the river’s raging


Come down with me
Let it all go and you’ll see
Embracing your lonely soul
The universe ebbs and flows


Come down with me
Let it all go and you’ll see
Embracing your lonely soul
The universe ebbs and flows
Sweeping The Floor

Here I am sweeping the floor
That’s all I am not much more
The crowd has gone home
I’m here all alone
Sweeping the floors as I do

When I get home do some shots
Stare at the phone till I drop
Waitin’ for your call
That’s about all
And sweeping the floors as I do

Wake up in the afternoon
Go down to that same old saloon
I sign in grab a broom and begin
Sweeping the floors as I do

Some folk’s the party’s never done
Some folks livin’ life on the run
Some fly real high and some just have died
I still sweep the floors like I do

When you left I was torn up
Mornings I didn’t wake up
Once I got out of bed, cleared my head
Got this job at a local saloon

Sweeping the floors as I do
And thinking how much I miss you
I really fucked up now I’m down on my luck
Sweeping the floors as I do

Don’t y’all feel badly for me
I’m doing fine as can be
Don’t expect much out of life it just sucks
Sweeping the floors as I do
