Pieces of April

Maybe this all began when I read the record labels on Elvis or Coasters records. I kept seeing Lieber and Stoller’s names under the title of the song. I saw Chuck Berry’s name was on the label as the singer, …

I Have to Dream

What lies before me – What stands between
No one can tell me what I have seen
Some see the tarnish I see the gleam
I have to wonder I have to dream
One dream can change you – One dream …

I Have To Dream

It took a lifetime to write this song one afternoon. As August was becoming September, I looked out the back of my house. The hillside was in full summer bloom. I thought about all the times I’d been at this …

One by One (Day by Day)

Day by Day Sun to Sun
Be with me One by One
Side by side In Unison
You and me One by One
You are the colors I see when I’m dreaming
You are the name on my lips when I’m cold

Long Way From Home

Some places airplanes don’t fly
Some places roads don’t go by

One cup of water One extra mile
For those days when kindness is slow
My once in a lifetime …

If There Was a Next Time

Carousel was turning Dreams began to spread
Music was for dancing and nights that lay ahead
I remember yearning things I left unsaid
Take a look around Take a Good Look Around
Drove down San Vicente to the ocean bluffs …

Mulholland Drive

You should have been here The fog burned away
And left me most of the day
I stopped for lunch and Stayed for dessert
It’s June and this is LA
What I was waiting for wouldn’t arrive
But I like to hope …

Nobody Knows But Me

I was busy when the future came
Looking darkly through a glass
We were introduced I loved your name
And the future came to pass
Nobody knows but me Nobody knows but me
Nobody knows what you open and close
Nobody knows but me
You’re …
