I used to write songs all the time and never anything else….Now I write everything else…and never write songs! I sat down with the guitar and wrote this in about five minutes. I had a blast and hope it makes someone else smile too. All words, music and playing by me.
It wouldn't be anything new If I was to say You don't miss what you've got Until it's gone And every sun that rises On every single day Witnesses me singing The same sad song: I sing Smoke em if you got 'em Throw that dog a bone Kiss the children for me And every heart is Looking for a home And every cupboard is empty When company comes to call And don't forget what comes Before a fall. I know that people leave Without saying their goodbyes And what good is farewell anyway? How can you wave off Another pair of eyes That you looked into with Devotion every day? I sing: There's is whiskey in the jar But not a drop to drink, I sing the shoals of herring Are swimming in my sink And white rabbits come A knocking upon perception's Rickety old door but they don't use the House key anymore! Oh every ounce of trust Is made to be broken And every promise rusts under the gold And saying that love lasts forever Gets old real quick When hearts are ruled by The carrot and the stick. I sing: Freedom is light But the burden is heavy And sailing down the river Is bound to get ya wet and dirty And every sailor knows The silver and the gold Will weigh you down to Drowning every time. Dead things float much better Than the living anyway Balloons are made to be Popped and to fly And in every ointment There is corruption and mess And love doesn't always end With death. I sing: There are diamond's in the mine But not a rock to smoke I was born with a spoon of silver But life is just a joke And every clown upon Every shining stage Wishes they were a rock Star every day! It wouldn't be anything new If I was to say You don't miss what you've got Until it's gone And every sun that rises On every single day Witnesses me singing The same sad song.
