So I’m emotional over those things I can’t control,
take to heart what I cannot hold.
I’m still curious of those things my life has sold,
I put in perspective what’s new and whats old.


Tell Me
by higman

tell me that it matters
tell me that it does
when your flyin with the eagles
or hiding with the doves

they’re stories that are many
they’re stories that are few
they’re stories with no ending
and stories never knew

tell me that it matters
tell me that it does
when your flyin with the eagles
or hiding with the doves

i hear sounds in the darkness
i hear sounds in the sun
loud are the sounds of a choir
loud is the sound of the silent one

tell me that it matters
tell me that it does
when your flyin with the eagles
or hiding with the doves

should I buy the sunrise
or a view no one feels
mind games are forever
where homes are never real

tell me that it matters
tell me that it does
when your flyin with the eagles
or hiding with the doves

rounded is the truth of many

blinded are ones that see

when did lonliness slap the world around us

when friends became words on a screen

tell me that it matters
tell me that it does
when your flyin with the eagles
or hiding with the doves


while I was away
by higman

you made the grade
you raised the bar
of what to meant to be free
you said you took a chance
and damned if it wasn’t to be

while I was away

you saw a different light
and showed it to us all
the bird flew from its cage
and flew free in the sun

while i was away

just when i thought being here
was as close as being there
just when a voice was a call some days
funny how lives work in the short and long
how did i miss all this
while i was away

you were the first to call
keeping us all in mind
but no amount of time
could ever change
whats inside us all

while i was away

now its more than just a reflection in a mirror on a bathroom wall with all the see, hear, and speak no evil did grace really come to call

while I was away


Oh The Pain
by higman

I’m in the dark
In the light
I’m incognito in plain sight
Silent I am
Calm as a lamb
As long as I keep to myself
I should last another night

It’s like walking through a forest
where the trees have no names
during all the colors of fall
While we all focus on the mundane
and the powers miss the call

Oh the pain
More than a mother with a newborn
Never knowing what tomorrow brings
Oh the pain
Expecting difference doing over the same thing
Oh the pain
How the dreamer sits on the shore
looking up into the sky
Knowing those that could do something
let the chance just go on by
Oh the pain

We all have our differences
but we live the same way
One voice on one planet
Knowing there will come a day
When our should have would have could haves were times we never lacked
and it’s too late to have each other’s back

Have we got there
I don’t know
But I sure would like to show
There’s no time like the present to stop pointing fingers
Every second ticks away
to where where a silence will forever linger
because we refused to work together for just one day

Oh the pain

Never knowing what tomorrow brings
Oh the pain
Expecting difference doing over the same thing
Oh the pain
How the dreamer sits on the shore
looking up into the sky
Knowing those that could do something
let the chance just go on by
Oh the pain

Oh the pain


Songs
by higman

Songs
running through my head
they’re just songs telling stories of the lives
of everyday people
daughters, husbands & wives

With the eyes to see
what lives and breathes
what loves and cries
about what’s good and wrong the words I say to you
just come out as songs


Again
by higman

It’s just one of times
Again
When the day is as long as the time I’ve been away
I tried to focus but the Blues seem to stay
I can’t stop thinking about home
Again

You can’t go away for a very long time
You can lose your sense, lose your mind
But you never forget your way back home
Again

When even the weather doesn’t
mean too much
I’ve learned that the only way to take life’s punch
No matter where I roam
I won’t stop thinking about home
Again
I just can’t rest
Til I’m home
Again
