leave your baggage at the door


Leave your baggage at the door

If you want into my life
Leave your baggage at the door
I’ve got enough all packed away
And I’ve no room for any more

I know you want to be with me
And I want to be with you
But, box up all your past mistakes
And you know what you can do

I’ve room to house all sorts of things
My cupboards are all bare
But, baggage like you’re carrying
It’s not stuff I want to share

If you want into my life
Leave your baggage at the door
I’ve got enough all packed away
And I’ve no room for any more

I went through hell a thousand times
Packed a bag inside my mind
for every failed relationship
And times I was caught blind

I want to have you in my life
And share our hopes and dreams
But, pack those bags up in your mind
And help deafen out the screams

If you want into my life
Leave your baggage at the door
I’ve got enough all packed away
And I’ve no room for any more

Whatever you did long before
Or even just last week
I don’t need it here inside
I don’t want to hear it speak

I’ve room for things..material
Like books and clothes and more
But if you bring bags of emotions
Then you’ll not get past my door

If you want into my life
Leave your baggage at the door
I’ve got enough all packed away
And I’ve no room for any more

Be The Artist (re-edited)

Do you live your life through movies?
Through good music or through books?
Do you fashion how you live your life
By how another looks?
Are you trendy or a classic?
Never straying from the line
Do you change your hairdo weekly
Well, if you do….that’s fine
Self image is a fickle beast
It’s one we can’t control
As one listens to classical
Someone else likes rock and roll
Do you wish the life you see up
on the giant movie screen
Is the one that you are living
Or are you living in between?
do you want to be a rock star?
Live your life out on the road
Or are you happy being where you are
Quite content to haul your load
Do you want to pack and travel
To places that you’ve read
Do you want to go and meet folks
From the past and now long dead ?
Do you dress like someone famous
From a brand new magazine
Do you steal phrases from the movies
From your favourite actors scenes ?
Are you a follower or a leader?
Or are you still one who’s not sure?
Is your form of self expression
Locked behind a steel tight door?
Are you silent or are you noisy?
Must you be the one who’s on
Or are you the wallflower in the corner
The one not missed when they are gone?
When you read does your mind wander
To a place you won’t return
Or does it take you to the precipice
Where you turn once you have learned?
Do you have imaginiation?
Or do you think you’ve no ideas?
Do your thoughts all die of loneliness?
Are they blocked out by your fears?
If a movie helps you come alive
And the music makes you dance
Imagine what your mind could do
If you just gave it a chance
Plant a seed and watch it grow up
Take a chance and make that leap
Step out front and be the leader
Not in back where you just creep
Be the one who sings the music
Makes the movie, writes the book
Break out your imagination
Be where other people look
Are you one who lives through movies?
Thorough a book or in a song?
Break the mould and be the artist
Be good or bad…it won’t be wrong.

Counting Stars


Counting stars (original with no chorus)

Looking at the night time sky
Staring at the stars
counting all that we can see
Serenaded by the cars
clouded sky and rainy nights
full moon and sometimes none
I cherish counting stars with you
You are my only one

Making wishes on the shooting ones
Knowing what we see is gone
In the twinkle of an instant
Their light may now be done
In the darkness of a moon filled night
Lying, counting stars with you
It doesn’t matter how high we get
we may even just see two

Imagine, if there’s someone there
Counting stars, and we are one
That they look at and imagine
On the far side of the sun
thinking, what is going on
Way out there in space
counting stars, like I with you
brings a smile to my face

Lying here just holding hands
And counting stars we see
Just knowing that this point in time
belongs to you and me
counting some we do not see
A speck in outer space
Lying, counting stars with you
this is my favorite place
