Lover’s Alibi-video

The moon was out the stars were lit
the wind was right

she held me in the cooling
of an august night

I loved her she loved me
there was nothing more to be

chorus———————————–
I can’t explain
why there’s stars in your eyes

I cannot hide
a true lover’s alibi
———————————————-
she was young and beautiful
as the skyline of distant light

these things were new to us
like a song first being heard

we were scared of the morn
and the night succumbing to soon
C————————————————-
as the meadow of which we hid
bodies and our minds entwined

I loved her and she loved me
there was nothing more to be

the moon was our alibi
and the wind told no lies

morning comes softly

much as an empty penthouse
or a squalor full of dreams
like your phantom touch
waking from your lonely sleep
 
as red tail lights fade into the night
the stream of distant traffic
flowing down the American seams
as the trains no longer abide
 
opium moon light breaching
through the night, resting peacefully
upon white sheets where you laid
coming through the blinds, tears are made
lay me down where your silence rests
hold me still, my restless being
be not the fears of tomorrow
that lead me unto another lonely day
 
light breaks upon unto and through
off white blinds into a scattered room
through bloodshot eyes in the darken
respite for the harrowing mind
 
a touch, but an anchor; your gaze,
a lighthouse upon grave cliffs
reaching out resting on dark waters
as her spirit no longer moves upon them

moment with

the phantom touch
of an invisible hug
felt miles away
from the distant
and tragic eponymous love
 
As I wake in the stern
moonlight piercing through
the unfastened blinds
bright upon the sky
a haunt of memory evoking the night
 
like a dope sick dream
and beads of sweat
upon the brow a want like no other
for your lips I ache
through a restless night when I awake
 
for the moon has the sea
and it is unto thee
autumn has the spring
as the dying leaves
return unto the tree’s
 
the sea basks on the shore
and the weighted sand
stays until the ebb tide
turns back upon it’s bank
for what is nature if not rebirth
 
as the starlight neither
wanes nor repose
for they are there in the night
as in the light, waiting
to be through the darkened sight
 
hallow and saintly
to give thus not to receive
for what is time
if there not be love
holding it’s strands upon the mind
 
it is neither my body that wanders
nor my mind that wonders
it is my soul that reaches
from dreams that spoken
of hope that the moment with you will be forever

for what it is

There is no love in the heart
that is a singular or a part
it is a whole
 
it is the blood as is the air
that moves in the wind
ever so slight or in a hurricane
 
it is the water that moves
in the stream and from the sky
unto your lips and gives life
 
the light upon your eyes
that illuminates the sightless
as a full moon upon your darkest night

falling to feeling

We dance on the dock
as the moonlight dance
upon the wake
 
shining silver tide
upon the darkened waves
as it waltz upon the bay
 
and I feel so in love with you
 
walking in the afternoon light
as reflections of former loves
no longer kin to my sight
 
the stars bequest our eyes
as the moon rests upon the valley
and your body next to mine
 
and I feel so in love with you

Bon Evergreen

Bon evergreen in the evening breeze
waiting for the night to come
Bon evergreen in the moonlight
waiting for my heart to abide

bon evergreen lining a field
waiting my love to shine
Bon Evergreen only has needles
so it has no reason to leave/leaf

Bon Evergreen tracing the sea
of the northwest shore
Bon Evergreen perched along the bay
wait’n for my love to port

Bon Evergreen haunting my dreams
waiting for the night to come/go
Bon Evergreen on cliff side
waiting for me to succumb
