Writing In Bars

Writing in bars Is overrated I'm gonna leave it to the rock stars Before I end up wasted In the gutter With a broken guitar I let the verse flow free Not cage it up like a tiger Confined by the bars I'm gonna leave that to the rock stars   Someone I follow on [...]

Someday

I sit atop a lonely mountain Watching others play Perhaps I'll get to join them Someday...   I'll climb the trees Scrape my knees And if I feel brave Boldly march Into the dark Of some old spooky cave   I'll roam the hills Explore the wilds I will venture far and wide I won't [...]
