Hold Me

Hold Me
by higman

Hold me
under the night sky
hold me
over our bridge high
exclusively embraced intimately faced with what tonight is all about

hold me
nothing more to say
hold me
turn around is fair play
I’ll watch the world as it turns in your eyes
hold me
with a touch
love can’t deny

As the words I love you
play across our lips
Like two butterfly brushing wings
It’s only a silly thing
since we’re so close
If our lips never did meet

Hold me
while the night’s still young
and I’ll hold you
til the sunrise comes
Then we’ll spend the day
planning another way
to hold each other tomorrow night too

Hold me
as I
Hold you


It Takes Two Wings
by higman

Over on the shoreline
alongside the shining sea
there’s an eagle standing in the sand
Looking back at you and me
If it could fly
into the wind
it would in a heartbeat
and circle the sky as it was meant to
but it takes two wings
it takes two wings

Without the grace
in the wisdom of the ages
were all just babes locked in narrow cages

Grounded is the creature who leans to one side
all scales have a balance
the right and left foot must work together
before we teach others to dance

Over on the shoreline
alongside the shining sea
there’s an eagle standing in the sand
staring back at you and me
If it could fly
into the wind
it would in a heartbeat
and circle the sky as it was meant to
but it takes ywo wings
it takes two wings

I Broke My Own Heart
by higman

No one but myself to blame
I know it all too well
But if you could look for just a day through my eyes
You might see where I fell

No excuses needed
No voice left for pleading
Just these words

lyrics unsung

to let you know
I broke my own heart letting you go

From a cradle to your arms
I’ve spent a lifetime trying to understand
Too many things that I now know
were way beyond my hand

Still I tried
and tried my best
With wisdom and light through my hell
Looking through my open eyes
To see how my life has failed


No excuses needed
No voice left for pleading
Just these words

lyrics unsung
to let you know
I broke my own heart letting you go

Ive replaced the past with understanding
as I carry the present like holding a gift
But each step til tomorrow
are in my prayers for the spirit to lift

No excuses needed
No voice left for pleading
Just these words

lyrics unsung
to remind myself
I broke my own heart letting you go


Only my memories keep

by higman

I told myself I would’nt cry
I told myself i would’nt fall
I told myself alot of things
By not telling you at all

I didnt mean to hurt you
I didnt mean for things to be this way
I never meant for our lives
To see my darkest days


So many times I wanted to begin to let you in
To let us be one in how I feel
So many times I wanted to let you know
All I’ve known to be real

I saw what life could be for us
I saw what love felt like down deep
For the first time, I felt what sweet dreams were made of
When we were
together

Only my memories keep


When we were together, only my memories keep
No life I’ve ever known
When we were
together
Only my memories keep


Then I Awoke
by higman

The expression on her mothers face
Still didn’t tell me much
“Yes, she wants to talk to you.”
I hadn’t been there but a few seconds or more
Before they came walking through the door

I needed to walk into the other room
Into the garage to put things down
Then as I stood there
I could see there was no trace
of what was to come with her words expressed on her lovely face

Then I awoke
From such a dream
Things arn’t exactly what they seem
I can still see her eyes and through the distance
how strong the ties
Through it all I know this to be true
Dreams and Love have always spoke
Then I awoke


It’s ok to not understand

by higman

I’d go with u to the corners of the world
and when you can’t see that in my eyes
than look past my words into my heart
to connect past any lies
There are things I kept from you cause I never really knew just how deep they would affect you after how they hit me too


its ok
to not understand
Ive never meant to hold back
its ok
to not understand
just try to hold me through
Im not special in what Im going through
but I still am working it through

its the hardest thing I’ve ever been through
its ok
to not understand
just remember how much I love you


whatever the relationship

by higman

straight lines
crossed lines
missed lines
all the time
working overtime
to make our lives just fine

old friends
new friends
benefit friends
your my un friend
no matter the modern trend
soulmates never end

what ever the relationship
go the distance
never assume it’s the end
we all carry experiences
still to be learned if were soulmates & best friends
life’s never easy
ask any couple that’s been there
our hope never dies
there will always be ows in vows
only love tries and tries and tries


Short or long

by higman

too many years
to start over again
too many years
to believe another friend
too many years
unraveling how it began
too many years
to want someone new til the end

Happiness was never about me
when I did it for you
watching the light shining through
was all I could ever hope life could be

Now that your gone
not a daylight breaks
nothing moves or shakes
not even fall colors make
brighter in a world so wrong

in a life
short or long

too many years
to start over again
too many years
to believe another friend
too many years
unraveling how it began
too many years
to want someone new til the end

happiness was never about me
when I did it for you
watching the light shining through
was all I could ever hope life could be

in a life, short or long


In your world and mine
by higman

sometime your thrown a curve ball
sometimes a straight
I got home to watch the world series
but I was too late
one day there’s understanding
but come nightime there ain’t
I doesn’t mean I don’t love you
doesn’t mean I don’t care
doesn’t mean a lifetime
still isn’t there

I doesn’t mean anything
but what’s on our minds
and changes always happen
and change all the time
in your world
and in mine

in your world and in mine
the one we once knew
life was always a struggle
but we kept shining through
when it went wrong
I can’t take away
but I know love can find
us in a better way

in your world and
mine
cause hope is our sign
in your world and mine


no getting over you
by higman

theres just no getting over you
everday something else brings you through
with or without you
Ill be spending night & days through
cause theres just no getting over you

there are moments in the day that life goes its way
taking myself along with all the rest
but its never been best
unless i know youll come along too

there are moments at night
i go to rest my head
thinking of all the things ive said
but they’re meaningless in my life if I cant share them with you

theres just no getting over you
everday something else brings you through
with or without you
Ill be spending night & days through
cause theres just no getting over you


Garden

by higman

Tell me it’s worth it
Can’t see the sign
Understanding up ahead
But no way is mine
I shouldnt be out here
I miss my baby so
She deserved better than I could give
Now I’ll never know

No time to love again
I’ve seen the most fragrant rose
Held it for as long as shed let me
Like a fool I let her go


But I was not worthy of such beauty
Such love and such grace
I’m an unforgivin soul in a garden
They need not remember my face

In the garden

I’m just a weed

In the garden

No need to be


Eat My Sushi Alone
by higman

You’re that fine wine aged to perfection
the Oasis on a desert giving me direction
you’re that green spire in the moment of a setting Sun
til the end of the my days I’ll always know that you were the one

but now I eat my Sushi alone

if there were a perfect song it would be written about you
the freshest breath of Mountain air draws its strength from your breath as you walk into the room its like the shimmering on a sea
I’ll carry the blessing of you to my death

But now I eat my Sushi alone

Where are the times you’re not on my mind through the night or the light of day whether I’m too busy to stop or in the most peaceful meditation
There’s just no getting over you that little voice whispers when I pray
This is loves dedication

So once again I catch myself trying to concentrate on life
knowing from here on out things will never be the same
The true taste still lingers being husband and wife throughout Winter’s cold I still feel the flame

but for now I eat my Sushi alone

I’ve heard tell of no chance in hell

but for now I eat my Sushi alone


Millions of People. by higman
What do I have to say to make things right. Where do I have to go to see the light. My days are dark and even darker too are the every waking moments without you
I have no idea what I’m doing here in this thing we call life Where each day of work ends up being alone Millions of people on the planet but there’s only one I want to hear on a phone
What would make us come back together What must I move that keeps us apart I’ll do anything to pick up stronger Knowing now what can break our hearts
I have no idea what I’m doing here in this thing we call life Where satisfaction is measured by what we do Millions of people on the planet but I only want to spend my life with you
Millions of people on the planetmy life is empty without out you


For You
by higman

I have no words to explain the depths of my soul I have no words to rephrase the love you already know I have no words to describe what bended knees show
I have no words more than I love you more than you know

I have no needs beyond what keeps me alive
I have no needs that any ambitions drive
I have no needs that I desire or thrive
Beyond the need that I love you and on that I rely

There’s no simple way of putting it and I had to find it in the hardest way and rid myself of those stumbling blocks that have always got in my way
I ran the risk and payed the price and what I have left to say
is to please know how much I love you and that I’m here to stay

The only hope that’s given is one from above
and there’s no other hope on Earth as strong that I know of
It’s the only hope with grace like the wings of a dove
It’s on that hope I’m building a life of hope with the one I truly love


I’ll excuse myself
by higman

I may not be the perfect guy
Or claim to have all the answers
I don’t stand out in a crowded room
Or skilled in the art of romancing
One things for certain
I recognize pain
And I’m tired carrying it like a train

Losing you hurt me as well
As I know it hurt you
But something that hurts me even more
Is thinking of someone new
I can be captivated by another set of eyes
Or in the way another smiles
But I don’t have it in me
To go any distance without your beauty & style

So I’ll just excuse myself from the crowded room
When the time is right for me to do
Cause I can’t take the pain of falling again
After feeling this way losing you

It just isn’t right to carry on
In someone else’s world
When all your dreams, even bumps and thoughts
Are drifting in another sea
Maybe it’s just me

So I’ll just excuse myself from the crowded room
When the time is right for me to do
Cause I can’t take the pain of falling again
After feeling this way losing you


I Do Believe In Love
by higman

I do believe in love
only time gets in the way
there’s years it’s not fast enough then there’s days you can’t take away

I do believe in love
Now I know you’re the one
whether together or apart
once again my life has begun

There are days
I won’t lie
My faith in life
is less than bright
I’ve seen things
that takes away my sun
I just need someone who has faith in me
for the long run.

We’re always learning
I hope to learn til the day I die
My love for you will always be learning
While life changes always make us cry

I do believe in love
only time gets in the way
there’s years it’s not fast enough then there’s days you can’t take away

I do believe in love
Now I know you’re the one
whether together or apart
once again my life has begun

I’m just a man who has heard my share of doubts
Both for and against me I’d rather live with you but if have to I’ll go without
A man’s got to have hopes and dreams

I do believe in love
only time gets in the way
there’s years it’s not fast enough then there’s days you can’t take away

I do believe in love
Now I know you’re the one
whether together or apart
once again my life has begun


Not a day goes by
by higman

Not a day goes by
I don’t think of the warmth
on a cold winters day
or when I’m hard at work and
I can’t wait to play

Not a day goes by
I don’t count my blessings
for the good health I have,
when so many others suffer or are feeling bad

Not a day goes by
I don’t miss the sound
of a baby laughing as they run all around

Not a day goes by

I walk along city streets
Past holiday shoppers
Past holiday treats
In a time of joy,
I’ll still twinkle a smile to whoever I meet
But down down deep,
I’m missing you

Not a day goes by
And dare I fear
There will be no reason why
this coming up year
Will change the way I will always be, my dear

Not a minute,
Nor an hour,
Not a day goes by


My Gift of Lasting Love by higman
There was a time a season long ago when I was a younger man with a whole world to go I had a life with a love that rang pure like a bell yet pride deafened the sound of your voice I knew so well.
Words can never quite say how much I miss you every day of every year these Christmas lights with the glow so bright their colors only mix inside my tears

I’m placing once again under our Christmas tree It’s my gift of lasting love to you, our wedding bands in a box since I no longer know what to do
I know it’s a silly tradition it’s a just another lesson for my heart Maybe this coming new year, I say I can make that new start eventhough I know it’s never true
Ever since I lost you honey it’s never been the same. So with this present, a love & miss you. Please forgive me this Christmas, In Jesus name.


I Always Believed by higman

I believed in love
but not in myself
I believed in us
and nobody else
I could see but not with my eyes
as my past caught up
I could not hide
from the pain that had been seered
I always believed it was my heart you could hear

Walking down the path hand in hand
We try to together the best we can
With so much more to do
Life can get the best of you
leaving behind two pool of tears
I always believe it’s our hearts we could hear

Being lost inside and out
Left my confidence as a man in doubt
Now that I understand like never before
I was too late as you closed the door

To think I asked for this is a lie
to ever hurt us you know never would I
Intentions are sometimes never planned forever working on myself to be a better man Always learning to lose my faults and fears
But I always believed it was my heart you could hear

I always believed it was my heart you could hear


I Guess

by higman

I once thought I knew what love was all about
In a woman that I totally adored
I passed by a mirror and saw my reflection
When I looked back love closed the door
Guess it just doesn’t matter anymore

We turn into kids somehow
when love is around
Delusions of grandeur flirts our minds
As our world gets turned upside down
For awhile the sun shines through everything
And smiles are always found
Stepping in off the street into the new happy store
Til one day we go back out to check our meter and behind we hear the closing of the door
I guess it just doesn’t matter
We question if it ever did
I guess it just doesn’t matter anymore
