Green Moss

Soon the green moss will pale in comparison

to the emerald foliage around it lies,

Soon the green moss will bask in the reverie

of the shade from the lofty strong sycamore skies.

              

I once knew a lady, so gentle and kind,

And through the deep winter she stayed on my mind,

But when the spring came and the rain clouds had cleared,

The flowers they opened and she disappeared.

 

Soon the green moss will pale in comparison

to the emerald foliage around it lies,

Soon the green moss will bask in the reverie

of the shade from the lofty strong sycamore skies.

                  

I once loved a lad who was handsome with lies,

And in the green summer he gazed in my eyes,

But then the fall came and the trees lost their leaves,

He left me no honey, just sting of the bees,

 

Soon the green moss will pale in comparison

to the emerald foliage around it lies,

Soon the green moss will bask in the reverie

of the shade from the lofty strong sycamore skies.

                  

The moral of this here sad story I say,

In seasons of life things arrive and away,

But have you the courage to hold what can leave,

The moment you're living is all that you need.

 

Soon the green moss will pale in comparison

to the emerald foliage around it lies,

Soon the green moss will bask in the reverie

of the shade from the lofty strong sycamore skies.

No Place In Your Heart

Wide, empty spaces in my mind

where you are welcome no more. 

Deep, vast abysses in my heart,

I'm holding out for ancient folklore. 

 

Why do I cry and sigh so much for you,

When I know I have no place in your heart?

 

You cause this feeling in my stomach, 

It's like butterflies or tearing me apart, 

Where’d it start, I wouldn't know,

And if I did I wouldn't show. 

 

Why do I cry and sigh so much for you, 

When I know I have no place in your heart?

 

There's no use in shakin' it no matter how hard I try, 

So I might as well continue to tell myself

all the pretty, pretty lies. 

Every time I see you a part of me just dies.

I don't want to spend my life being just

the girl who never tries, 

I want to look you in the eyes,

But I know that isn't wise. 

 

Wide, empty spaces in my life

where you are welcome to fill all, 

All of my days with your laughter and joy.

 

Why do I cry and sigh so much for you, 

When I have no place in your heart, 

When I have no place in your heart,

When I have no place in your heart?

If

When we’re above the clouds, 

I think life doesn't feel so loud, do you dear? 

There are places I'd love to go, 

There are places I'd love to show to you, dear. 

 

So let's go gliding in an amber sky, 

Time ignores us when we fly this high.

 

But when we circle ‘round, 

Place our feet on the ground, the view, love, 

 

It melts away like snow in April skies, 

I did not know my heart could be the size, my love. 

 

We’ll live on through the years, 

Share all our joys and fears and sorrow.

 

We’ll love and laugh a lot, 

We’ll try to think not of tomorrow.

 

And live each day as if it was our last, 

There's no use in wishing back what's passed,

But this could have been our story if you'd asked…

For me, 

For my love, 

My dear.

Simple Joys of Life

You might think I'm crazy, others say insane.

The fact of the matter is, I'm easily entertained.

You say I'm a little ridiculous and you might just be right, 

But look around, appreciate the little things in life. 

 

A tree, a bee, a proper cup of tea, a new trail to hike, 

A rock, a sock, a bottle of soda pop, 

These are some little things I like, the simple joys of life. 

 

Oh the rainy days come and you want to turn away

from the bitterness of the world. 

When it all goes wrong and you don't feel strong,
Just think of this song and sing along.

 

A tree, a bee, a proper cup of tea, a new trail to hike, 

A rock, a sock, a bottle of soda pop, 

These are some little things I like, the simple joys of life,

Life. 

Sweet World

Cotton Candy skies above,

Rocky Road below my love, 

You’re the one I’m dreaming of, 

It’s a sweet, sweet world.

 

You got me Gobstoppin’ in my tracks boy, 

‘Cause you’re as innocent as a La Croix,

You fill the Reese’s Pieces of my heart with joy, 

You’re my sweet, sweet world.

 

Take 5 minutes and you will see, 

This Big Hunk is a little Bit o’ Honey,

You call me Baby Ruth, 

but I have to tell the truth, 

I sometimes call you my…

 

Razzle dazzle, Laffy Taffy, Dubble Bubble Gummy Bear...

I think I could fit S’more words in there.

 

He fell in love with a Meringue dancer, 

She said yes, that was her answer,

Now we live in a Jolly little Rancher,

It’s a sweet, sweet world.

 

You might hear him say, 

“Hershey kisses me so sweet”,

But let me tell you, 

he knocks me off my feet, oh.

 

Cinnamon-tal mem’ries fly,

We see a Starburst-ing in the sky,

I Nestlé closer with a gentle sigh,

It’s a sweet, sweet world

 

Some people are just Mint to be, 

Hey sugar, you’re my honey bee,

Thanks for Pudding up with me, 

Even with life gets Toffee,

Oh, it’s a little hard to chew sometimes.

 

Cotton Candy skies above, 

Rocky Road behind my love,

You’re the one I’m always dreaming of, 

You’re my sweet, sweet world.

Firefly Away

Blinking in the falling dusk,

Who’s to stay and who’s to trust

One day we’ll all turn to dust and firefly away.

 

One day there, the next day gone,

Might show up across the lawn,

After midnight, before the dawn, I’ll firefly away.

 

Firefly away, firefly away, there’s no reason to stay, firefly away.

 

No one knows just when they’ll go,

I guess we’ll all just have to glow,

In the darkness or shadow, firefly away.

 

Like a beacon in the night,

Floating first, then taking flight,

Earthbound bits of starlight firefly away.

 

Firefly away, firefly away, give me a reason to stay, or I’ll firefly away.

Firefly away, firefly away, there’s no reason to stay, firefly away,

firefly away, firefly… away.
