Just one more changeI didn't say I loved you,
as much as I could have.
I know I didn't treat you,
as good as I should have.
I didn't mean to make you feel second place,
I'm sorry if I did.
For every waking moment,
you where always on my mind,
always in my heart.
I know I didn't hold you,
when you where lonely.
Did I ever tell you,
I'm happy that your mine.
All the little things,
I didn't do or say.
please tell me,
tell me your love for me is alive.
if you give me just one more chance,
I promise Ill keep you satisfied.
Tommy was a friend of mineNew times, so called liberated days,Tommy was a friend of mine10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tommy comes to mind,
he will always be a brother of mine.
Tommy you see, he was gay,
that's just how it was,
nothing more or nothing less.
Mummy's tears fall in vain,
the day Tommy tried to say,
he needed love like all the rest.
"This cant be right,
how cam my boy not be straight,
I don't understand,
after all I've done for him."
So Tommy left that day,
rejected by the parents he loves,
victim of being gay it seems.
Tommy got on the bus to New York,
he settled down real fast.
Accepted by this town of all sorts,
he made friends he never knew,
no party was the same without Tommy.
Along Bouavard's he did cruise,
causing the Queens to blow a fuse,
Everyone loved Tommy.
The last time I saw Tommy,
was a summer not to long ago,
he said he was in love.
Tommy went to a show,
I said I didn't want to go,
Tommy left before the show was over.
he took a little path we know,
a shortcut home,
arm in arm were Tommy and his love.
Out of nowhere
I dont wanna hurt youDon't ask me if I love you,I dont wanna hurt you10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I just don't know how to reply.
I want to answer with honesty,
not with a lie.
But who are you to judge me,
for what Ive said and done,
your only just beginning to see the real me.
When we touch,
I have to close my eyes to hide.
I'm gunna hold you in my arms until we die,
I just want to hold you,
in the hope all the fear in me goes.
For all that we've been through,
some tenderness survives.
Are you another writer?
still holding on to the truth?
I understand you,
I know how much you try.
I've seen love come to you,
I've seen love pass you by.
All of us are drifters,
all needing a friend,
just a brother or a sister,
but just around the corner,
the passion shows its head.
I'll have to say I'm sorry,
for I don't know what to say.
I cant lie to you,
even though I tried.
A heart that screaming out to you,
a head giving reason why.
I'll sit alone tonight,
and wander what I've done,
I'll cry for all the memories,
until the day I die;
Him and HerHim and Her10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It wasn't meant to be like this,
it wasn't meant to happen,
He weren't meant to fall for her,
She wasn't meant to fall for him.
She didn't want to do,
she didn't want to get hurt.
he was afraid,
he didn't know she felt the same.
She so desperately wanted to tell him,
He desperately wanted to hold her.
Her mind was made,
her mind was set,
she had to tell him just how she felt.
For she had fallen hard for him,
He had no idea.
She didn't want to hurt him,
she knew she couldn't stay.
Deep down inside she knew,
it was worth the chance.
Just to hold him that one time,
she knew it was what he wanted,
he had told her himself.
He'd told her he was falling,
she'd told him she'd be leaving.
Hurt him it did do,
She hurt to know she'd done this.
But she knew she had to tell him.
So here I am,
if you think its worth a go,
If you think its worth the chance,
if you think our love is strong enough.
Id like to get to really know you,
to know your fears,
This is goodbye my friendEvery time I smile your way,This is goodbye my friend7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I have to ask myself if you'll smile back.
Will you remember me,
or am I last weeks news.
I waved your way,
but you just walked away,
left me standing there,
in the warm summer rain.
The rain dried my tears that day,
never to wash away.
This is Goodbye.
Goodbye my old friend
