Don’t Get It Twisted

DON’T GET IT TWISTED

Life can be sweet; life can be insane.
But Mama used to say, don’t never hook up with, a “Gambling Man.”
Because he’ll tell you that he loves you, he’ll tell you that he cares.
When you look around, he’s nowhere to be found.
Because he marches to a different drummer, he marches to a different plan.
Because he follows the games, everywhere.
The next thing you know, you’re in love with, a “Gambling Man.”
So, just look around, and you will see.
There is no future with loving, a “Gambling Man.”
He’ll leave you in a minute, he’ll leave you at the sound – of the dice rolling, cards shuffling, roulette wheel spinning, slot machines ringing.
He loves that crazy sound, cuz he’s, a “Gambling Man.”
So, don’t get it twisted, and you will see, there is no future in loving – a “Gambling Man.”

Most of All

MOST OF ALL

I have your picture hanging on the wall, there comes a time when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
On cloudy days and rain starts to fall, that’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
When the wind blows through the trees, birds and bees bow there heads in sympathy.
That’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t stop, and look at your picture, and gaze into those big brown eyes.
That’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
On holidays when the sun refused to shine, that’s when I really miss you – MOST OF ALL.

Take Time

TAKE TIME

We Must take time, for the small things in life:
Like stars shining on a windless night, clouds passing by in early daybreak.
Sun beams bouncing off of forest trees, leaves getting ready for autumn breeze.
Children looking up at hot air balloons, man is talking about going back to the Moon!
We must take time to smell the flowers as they bloom
And look up at snowcap mountains as they try to touch the sky,
And imagine watching baby eagles trying to fly.
So, we must take time, before life passes us by –
This all can happen – In the blink of an eye.

So Glad

SO GLAD

There’s only one thing I need on this Earth – that’s you.
You feed me with your words, you solidify my unquenchable thirst.
You watch me grow, as I Journey from place to place.
Yes, you stand over me, and you give me Grace.
So, everything I need I have, and it all comes from you.
You’re my sunshine in the morning, you’re my Moonlight at the end of the day.
You’re everything I asked for, in every single way.
When the clouds walk in and find me, and I shiver in the shade.
When I look up and I can’t find you, then you reach out and give me your hand.
To guide me to a place, where I can plant my feet on solid Ground.
Knowing that you will never leave me, knowing that you care –
As I look around and I can’t find you, but I know that you’re there –
By the gentleness of the wind blowing through my hair.
It took a long time for me to find you, but you were always there.
To watch me, and guide me, without saying a word.
You’re my bridge Over Troubled Waters, you’re my sunshine after the rain.
I’m so glad that I found you;
Now we’ll stay together, and meet in silent prayer.
