Where Did America Go?
Were Did Ameria Go? I’ve always believed America Was a harbor for the free. A place where immigrants Have a place to be. A shelter in bad weather, A welcome place for all, To get out of the rain, Not blocked by any wall. But now I have to wonder, Where did America go? What happened to the shelter, Does anyone out there know? An atmosphere of anger Has now replaced it all. “Stop, do not enter” Is written on the wall. Take a look around you, Do you even see, The America you once knew, From sea to shining sea?

Who'll Stand Beside Me?
"Who'll Stand Beside Me?" Sitting in a dark room, Is no place to be; I've closed up all the curtains There's nothing more to see. Dreams in a dark room Are never to be found; I can't see the future, And I don't hear a sound. chorus: Who'll stand beside me, When I'm singing  my last song? When my light's gotten dim, And the days have gottin long. My soul is so infected, And my thoughts are now of you; They're the only thing I have When I'm down and feeling blue. A friend is a friend, When the goin here gets rough, When everybody's gone, And my life has gotten tough. Chorus: Who'll stand beside me, When I'm singing my last song? When my l

Save Me Oh Sweet Music
I put my headphones on, And I turn the volume high. I am taken to another place, But I can't tell you why. The music is my fix, It changes who I am, It can lead me to the alter, Like a sacrificial lamb. It can raise me up to heaven, Or take me down to hell, But it changes how I feel, And it does it very well. I turn the volume up, Higher than before, It might sound kinda crazy, But the music is my whore. When I feel all the pressure, Trying to survive I listen to the music, And it makes me feel alive. Save me oh sweet music, Carry be away, It’s just the thing I need, To get me through the day.

Behind The Black Curtain
Lyrics: "Behind the Black Curtain"     By Tom Wilcox.    5/24/18 Behind the black curtain, Our secrets stay as they are. Nobody has a clue; We keep them all in a jar. Behind the black curtain, Men are afraid to speak. Everyone lives in fear Afraid their secret will leak. There's so much we are afraid of; The boogie man's under the bed. We all have secrets we're hiding, And we have them all in our head. Behind the black curtain, Everyone lives in fear. Behind the black curtain everyone's, Afraid to look in the mirror.

The Students Have Spoken
"The Students Have Spoken"      lyrics by Tom Wilcox When our schools are war zones, And no solution is found, And blood covers our children; Do you not make a sound? Will you sit on your hands, While our young children shout? Blood splatters their hallways, Call the NRA out! "It's not the right time", Our congressmen say, But the children keep dying, Day after day. Assault rifles, Are the weapons of choice, And the children keep dying, And the children have no voice. But a new wind is blowing; The students have spoken. The times are a-changing, The tiger's been woken. "There's a tme to weep, And a time to laugh. A time to be silent, A

You Were Created For Me
   "You Were Created For Me"     By Tom Wilcox     3/25/2018 What is the purpose of a pebble? It must have a purpose to be. Just like the stars in the sky, They all were created for me. Why does a songbird sing Is it singing because it is free? Or maybe the reason it's singing, Is because it is singing for me? One thing I know for certain, Its easy for me to see, The reason that you were created, You were created for me. Whenever I look in your eyes I feel my knees go weak, Whenever I kiss your lips, I'm at the top of a mountain peak. One thing I know for certain, Its easy for me to see, The reason that you were created, You were create

Thunderstorm
THUNDERSTORM - lyrics by Tom Wilcox I feel like I'm caught in a thunderstorm, Another bad weather day Tell me, where did the sun go? Why is the sky so grey All this weight on my shoulders, All this pain in my heart, Make it stop, make it stop, make it stop; It's tearing me apart. I feel like I'm caught in a thunderstorm, With all this rain pouring in. Can't you see what you did to me; Now I'm starting all over again. Dark skies, where did the sun go? I feel cold and lonely and sad. I feel like I'm caught in a thunderstorm; I've lost everything I once had. You've left me out in the cold; I feel I have no place to go. All this rain and the

Smoke and Mirrors
Smoke and Mirrors        By Tom Wilcox Like smoke and mirrors, She disappears; Never knowing time or place. When times get tough, She's had enough; Too much for her to face. Hard to know, When she will go; Like a white cloud in the sky. Does she see, What it does to me; Never even says goodbye. Without a tear, She'll reappear; Knowing that I'll take her back. I just don't know, How she can go, On jumping from the track. Like smoke and mirrors, She disappears; What more can I say. It saddens me, Every time I see, Her up and walk away. Doesn't she know, I love her so; She brings me so much pain. Can't she see, What she does to me; She's d

The Frozen Pond
It was late, the bar was closing; We shared philosophies of life. There was just something about her; She cut thru me like a knife. I spoke about the one thing, I had hidden all these years. I was just a child then; (My eyes filled up with tears). My friend told me about a place; We walked there just to see. It was a frozen pond in springtime; A place we shouldn't be. She listened to my story, And put her hand on mine. I stumbled with my words; They got caught up in the wine. The ice broke all around him, The picture never goes away. I had his hand and tried to save him, But I saw there was no way. The ice broke closer to me; I tried for

A Drunk On the Highway
A Drunk on the Highway          by Tom Wilcox 2017 I've been a ticking time bomb; afflicted, addicted. Lost in a way, I'd never have predicted. A drunk on the highway; sometimes forgetting. And after it's over, Never admitting. A drunk on the highway; A killer consumed; White crosses of death, Where flowers once bloomed. I now am a free man, And I've closed the door. The man in the mirror, Ain't the same as before. Now I've closed the door, And locked it up tight; There's no going back, In the middle of the night. A drunk on the highway, With demons to fight; Never again, 'Cause I've seen the light. Now I am clean, and so is my sole;

The Heart Ain't Always Right
All my life I tried to find you, Never knowing where to look; I searched out every back street I opened every book. Never did I realize, I had you all the time; I was a poet in the darkness, That couldn't find the rhyme. I reached the wrong conclusions; Not knowing black from white, But now I know the answer, The heart ain't always right. The heart ain't always right; The heart ain't always right. Now I know the answer, That the heart ain't always right. My life was filled with pain, From not knowing who I was; You tried so hard to show me, But I'd fight you just because. Now the time goes by much faster, And I finally see the light; I'v
