“Hurricane”
completed on 1.24.19

the destruction in my wake
the damage that i make
but you grab me at my core
and leave me never needing more

sometimes i’m lost inside a hurricane
the wind swirling around me
leaving me where I can’t see
the slightest thing in front of me

i trend towards chaos
destroy everything in front of me
i’m fighting for answers
and don’t have time to ask for help

chorus:
but your voice is louder than the thunder
and you shield me from the hail
somehow you always calm a storm
a sun shower/peace leaving me feel warm

you calm the ground when it quakes
stop the wind in its place
stop the fire from spreading
to ease my troubled mind

at times i only see a glass that’s empty
but you always fill my cup
when my mind digs a shelter
you always pull me out

chant/round:
louder than my thunder
armor from my hail
soothing my storm
leaving me feel warm

“Emergency”
written on 10.24.11

red and white flickering in the moonlight
i need you like it’s an emergency
hear your voice like the sirens approaching me
without you i can feel my heart shutting down
i want to feel you circulate inside me
’cause i know you’re the drug keeping me alive

let your love trickle in from the IV
you’re a perfect match to what i need
breathe you in deep like oxygen
feel your support like a splint holding me in place
i put my faith in you to take me anywhere

feel your touch gently run across my skin
watch your breath make my lungs rise again
sense your heart making my pulse skip a beat
stunned by your kiss shocking me back to life

my signs and symptoms are all indicating
i’m better when i’m with you
without you i’m cold and catatonic
and you’re the only medication i need
’cause you’re the only thing that makes me feel alive

“Silhouette”

put down the glass
it’s not like you need it to feel alive
everyone’s just looking for an escape
but it’s not the safety net that will save you

a kaleidoscope of bottles
everyone of them deceptive in their intent
marketed to extravagance
but will leave you a shadow of who you used to be
you’ve got to shake off that addiction

so reach down, down deep to what makes you happy
the emptiness in your soul can’t be filled by another bottle
take a deep breath and one sober step forward
you can let it go

life’s more than the blurred visions and temporary highs
so reach out – past the crowded bars and drunken masses
grab my hand
i know I can save you
because I once was you
