Christmas In Your Eyes

Christmas In Your Eyes

Winter’s chill is in the air
and lonely hearts are everywhere
they search the faces in the crowd
and fight the urge to cry out loud
and slowly wander home to pray
that love will come, and love will stay
for love’s the one and only thing
they hope that Christmas morn will bring.

I’ve shopped for presents, hung the lights
and lived a thousand lonely nights
wrapped the boxes, tied the bows
and second-guessed the paths I’ve chose
I’ve built beginnings from the ends
and gave the time to help a friend
but never did I realize
that I’d find Christmas.. in your eyes..

Life is funny, love is tough
the rules are never clear enough
the greatest struggles love demands
are simply softened, holding hands
now you’ve got wishes, I’ve got dreams
with rainbows in our color scheme
of moonlit walks and starry skies
since I’ve found Christmas.. in your eyes..

you’re such a heaven-sent surprise.

Foolish Game

Did you ever try and see
what’s going on inside of me ?
did you care
when I told you any time,
anywhere
just call
I’d give you anything at all
if you’d say
you’d stop this foolish game you play

do you want to see me plead ?
cause babe, you’re all I’d ever need
I’m a man
won’t you take me as I am
not a fool in love
no, it’s something far above
won’t you stay
and stop this foolish game you play

Is there something wrong with me ?
that keeps me waiting patiently
for your time
and hope you’ll change your crazy mind
it’s unreal
if I could only show you how I feel
I think you’d say
you’d stop this foolish game you play

did you ever try and see
what’s going on inside of me ?
I think you’d say
you’d stop this foolish game you play

 

Pieces

Pieces

burgundy music
that’s haunting me still
as your eyes leave their imprint
from dreams unfulfilled
and I question the purpose
of distance and time
when life seems too short
for the mountains we climb…

seconds of laughter
cure minutes of tears
as the smoking reminder
of love disappears
if we both start to walk
will we pass in the night
too afraid of the shadows
to capture the light…

when love comes in pieces
it boggles the mind
with no sense of direction
the path, undefined
if the flame starts to dwindle
from life rushing by
feel secure in the passion
that joins you and I…

when my mouth tries to call you
it ends in a sigh…

Somewhere in a Dream

Somewhere in a Dream

I’m walking in the morning light
from somewhere in a dream
the colors, taste and sound of love
are never what they seem
I long to feel your pouting lips
upon my weary face
and maybe just a touch or two
to help me through this place

If love were simple, you and I
would dance among the stars
protect our smiles, from earthly trials
the universe is ours
and lay at night, in sweet delight
on silk and satin seas
and take the time, to meld and bind
the way that love should be

I’m running toward the morning sun
as if it holds some key
to push the darkness from my heart
and bring you here to me
I know the feelings, gray and blue
are never what they seem
it’s just the way they feel at night
from somewhere in a dream…

In The Time ( It Takes To Love You )

In The Time ( It Takes To Love You )

in the time it takes to hold you
I’ve gone dancing with the stars
to the rhythm of the oceans
and the pulse of steel guitars
I’m surrounded by the aura
of a moonlight rhapsody
and your arms describe the beauty
in a perfect harmony

in the time it takes to kiss you
I’ve gone swimming in your eyes
diving deep in liquid laughter
where the springs of love arise
such a crystal clear devotion
such a simple honesty
I am twice the man I’ve dreamed of
when you’re gazing back at me

in the time it takes to love you
I have come to understand
that the door to ever after
is best opened, hand in hand
as your kind and gentle nature
brings an educated smile
in the time it takes to love you..
you have loved me, all the while…

turn off the lights, love
I will find you
by the warmth
of your love,
smoldering around my heart

I dream more these days
silly dreams,
and dreams of grandeur…
but I’m always playing me
and you,
are forever you
with your valentine lips
and your chocolate eyes
that have seen so much
and yet,
do eyes really see at all ?
because, I know
everything I love about you
is an emotion,
a feeling
bursting from the middle of my chest
breathlessly so
and I know I’ve been dancing with you
in those dreams
I felt your hands
I touched your face
and now
I can’t tell which world
is real….

and I’m not really sure
it even matters…

turn off the lights love
I will find you..
always.
