Make it one
A one time kiss
No need to repeat it
When its over
I will beat it
And I wont ever kiss you again
 
Make it one
A one tme dance
Then leave me on the floor
Isabella, nevermore
Will I take
You by the waist to embrace
 
Make it one
A one time stab
Directly to my heart
One thrust
From my beloved
Then I shall depart

Once I loved a Creole girl
But I never let her know
I never even kissed her 
On the night I let her go

It was in the dead of winter
But she was all aglow
That night was going to be our night
How was I to know

What she was feeling
How I hurt her so
Now my heart is reeling
How was I to know?

She invited me to dinner
Her room mate was out of town
I couldnt have been dimmer
I acted like a clown

Flowers on the table
Lights turned way down low
Making love was on her mind
How was I to know

What she was feeling
How I hurt her so
Now my heart is reeling
How was I to know?

It was three clock in the morning
I said Id better go
Thse were the last words I said to her
How was I to know?

Chorus
If you cry for someone
Cry cry cry just for them
For them alone, otherwise
You are just crying for yourself
 
Verse 1
Like falling stars burning in the sky
As you stand on burning ground
Look into the mirror of a fighter for his life
Knocked put in the final round
 
Bridge
If you cry for someone
Cry until there are no tears left
Not out of love or sympathy
Or to knock the ticking clock out of your chest
 
Repeat chorus
 
Verse 2
Like memories burning in your heart
Of all those fallen stars
You remember them but only see yourself
Tears alone wont wash away the scars
 
Repeat chorus

Song of the Day #27 Krista Click link for free download or to listen https://billwhite.bandcamp.com/track/krista-3

sometimes i browse the net to see what old friends have been up to. in 1987, i made an album with twio young women, a vioinist and a cellist. the cellist moved to india ad married. the cellist started her own chamber group in california. i was checking youtube for recent concerts of her group and when i clicked on her name was shocked to see her at a memorial service for her celllist friend, delivering a painfaul eulogy. i was moved and saddened to the core by the words she spoke about her lost friend. when it was over, i picked up the guitar and this song came out with my tears.
Lyrics:
Krista was your friend
I liked her too
She inspired this song
Im singing for you

It was 1987
The ground was getting cold
Both of you were such a large part
Of the story I told

You and I sat by the river
In the evening twilight mist
You asked if it would be dangerous
If we kissed

Krista played the cello
You play the violin
We could have gone the distance
But sometimes you just cant win

Krista was your friend
I liked her too
She inspired this song
Im singing for you

She was young and coltish
You were fanciful and strong
I remember every moment
Through the years that weather long

Song of the Day #26 I Know a Place

I Know A Place
Where the men take off their hats
And the women keep them on
At least I used to knoe the place
For all I know its gone
 
Now the woman picks a flower
And the man picks his nose
She washes his hair
He messes up her clothes
 
She borrows a fancy dress
He shoplifts a shirt
Both pretend to be somebody
Both are as common as dirt
 
But I Know A Place
Where people still sing the songs
They learned when they were kids
At least I uused to know the place
Now its a home for invalids
 
And the woman holds the baby
And the man protects the house
There is a cop on every corner
Ad its as quiet as a mouse

First Love

In the junkie netherlands of dawn
The lines of lost men are long
Muddy feet slosh the ground 
Eyes are in the clouds above
Dreaming of first love

You never forget your first love
Though there be many others
Its the first tittie that you put in your mouth
Since you left your mother

Drunkrn lines of broken boxcars
Traveling deep inside the past
Memories of better days
Are the only thing that last

You never forget your first love
Though there be many others
Its the first tittie that you put in your mouth
Since you left your mother

Why did I fold on every hand?
My life was cut and run
My chips thrown into random pots
Until the game was done

You never forget your first love
Though there be many others
Its the first tittie that you put in your mouth
Since you left your mother

No beds left in the winter freeze
Not even a bench in the park
No more sleeping in the subway now
Even the church doors are locked

You never forget your first love
Though there be many others
Its the first tittie that you put in your mouth
Since you left your mother

Slipping backwards into life 
Smashed against forgotten places
Try to catch a friendly eye
Finding only scornful faces
From the town of Tombstone
I ride the rails to who knows where
Next stop could be my hometown
Nobody is waiting for me there

Here is the garden where i used to grow
And the room where I used to sleep
I wonder what ever became of
The treasures that I used to keep
How many doors must I open
To find the dark at the top of the stairs
I hear the laughter n the play room
Nobody Waiting for me there

After they put me in my grave
I lost my way between heaven and hell
Seeing the wonders Swedenberg saw
On that celestial carousel
I stand now outside Peters gate
My breath is cold, my head is bare
You need an invitation to get inside, Peter says
And nobody is waiting for you in there
