YOU CAN’T COME

You can’t come,

And then leave so quickly.

Surround my head with you

And let me be in yours

Then act as if it never happened.

 

I’m not like the others

I saw into your eyes a fire.

That was fed by mine.

That warmed us both

 

It was all planned

My reactions, your  disappointments.

The debilitating frustration.

You’re always a victim…

Never a contributor.

 

I will not leave your head.

I will come again.

And again, and again and again.

BIG TIME

 

[featuring Keke on vocals and Motor City Josh on Guitar]

 

Big time loser…Acting like he lost something he never had.

Big time boozer…He’s acting happy when really he’s sad.

Big time lover…it’s been a long time since he’s been laid.

Big time spender…spends all of his time trying to get paid.

 

But big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone… big times… never last long.

Little sally Johnson

lived up in Wisconsin,

But she never really liked the snow,

So she packed up for Hollywood,

She thought she’d be doing good

If she could land a role in the show.

But she got rejected,

And it came so unexpected

That she took off for parts unknown

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone…’ big times… never last long.

 

And then there’s Timmy tough guy,

He walked away with a black eye..

He didn’t make it into round two

But he showed up on that night

And he put up his best fight,

That’s more than most men ever do.

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone… big times… never last long.

 

And poor Bobby Jones

He’s all skin and bones

Trying to sell his artwork at the fair.

But no one was buying

So he just quit trying,

and focused on braiding his daughter’s hair

Emily and I with her family in Quindío Colombia

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone…’cause big times never last long.

big times…never last long.

big times …

never last long.

If I Had a Dollar

DSCF0542

If I had a dollar

For every time you said goodbye

I’d build that dream house in the countryside

 

And if I had a dollar

For every time that we’ve made up

I’d be the richest man in America

 

But I don’t have a dollar

I’m just trying to make some sense

Of the craziness we’ve been going through lately

 

‘cause I can’t get no credit

For all the good things that I’ve done

I just get blamed for all the bad things

………………

If I had a dollar

I’d buy you a flower

And maybe you’d be happy for a little while

 

But being that I’m broke

All I got’s a song and joke

But maybe that’s good enough for you

 

But the only way I’m poor

Is if I can’t have you no more

‘cause babe when I’m with you  I’m A Rich man

 

But if I’m broke or not

I’d give everything I’ve got

Just to hold you in my arms one more time

                  ……………….

If I had a dollar

If I had a dollar

If I had a dollar

I’d spend it all on you

      (repeat)

Take Me Away

 

Take me

Take me away

Away from here

Take me away from here

I’ve got so much

To take me

Take me away from here

So take me

Take me away

Away from here

Take me away from here

But nothing

Can take me away

From thinking

About you all day

But nothing

Can take me away

From thinking

About you all day

 

So if you want to get shady and be a slim lady

Well that’s alright whatever gets you crazy

I really don’t mind

I’ll just keep doing my thing.

 

And if my rhyme don’t rhyme every single time

That’s just fine I’m still keeping time

And who knows,

Maybe I’ll just learn how to sing.

 

And if the kid Don’t rock I’ll knock him off his block

And I’ll fill his mouth with a a dirty old sock

‘Cause a kid aint nothin’

If his ears don’t ring.

 

So bake me shake me no one here can take me

Keep on pushing but you’re never going to break me

You can try but you can’t make me

Do your thing.

Deeter’s Prayer

Thank you lord for these eyes that allow me to see what others overlook.

Thank you for the ears that hear sounds that others cannot comprehend.

For the tongue that lets me savor the hidden fruits of your garden.

The nose that smells the wildflowers scattered about the path.

And skin to feel the private passions of a true love.

 

And now I ask you, for just one moment, to take it all away

So that I can be one with you.

QUIERO CRUZAR RIOS

 

Quiero cruzar ríos, mares, montañas, con mi espada afilada y levantada a conquistarte

Como un gran Jinete del norte

Y levantarte del sillón y cargarte a la cama para que seamos un ser de un corazón,

De un latido con un ritmo de vida.

Sin temor, sin miedo, sin aprensión.S2200016

Quitar cualquier duda de tu alma como si fuera una prenda estorbando mi pasión

y dejar esa duda tirada en el piso.

Como si no fuera nada…ya vencida.

 

Otra vez siento algo en mi corazón

Otra vez tengo esperanzas de

Sentir amor en mis brazos

De conocer cada aliento, cada suspiro, cada mirada,

Sea sorpresa, miedo, deseo, cariño, rabia, o amor.

He hecho errores, es cierto

En los momentos de más necesidad

Te he empujado por afuera

O te buscaba y no te encontraba.

Pero aun estas allí.

Y cualquier distancia será poquita

Te siento como si

Estuvieras sentada en el sillón

y yo en la silla

 

Anhelando tenerte en mis brazos haciendo el amor apasionado

Anhelando ver el éxtasis en tu cara que solamente viene de la confianza de ser amada

Anhelando ver tu cuerpo desnudo, agotado, dormido a lado del mío

Anhelando un beso húmedo y caliente después de una noche de platica y risas

Ansiando un saludo

Waited

 

I stood on a mountain and looked down at the sea                                                                        I raised my my head and fell down to my knees

I prayed to the Lord to forgive me for my sins                                                                            He said “Sorry son but I think that you’ll do it again.”

So I climbed down the mountain and jumped into the sea                                                          I started drowning ‘til a mermaid rescued me.

I’ve waited my whole life to meet a girl like you.                                                                      But now that I met you I don’t know what to do
