Doing My Time 

I live my  life one day at a time
just to embrace you, your body and mind
to have lived the moments
that I've cherished in our time
just to embrace you, your body and mind

And God knows I did right
my reflections of my beliefs were right
the sight of our love didn’t always see the light
 would have driven anyone away at first sight

I’m just doing my time
to embrace you,  your body and mind
to have lived the moments
that I've cherished in our time
just to embrace you, your body and mind

For good and the bad, that’s who I am
protecting my heart to the end
while I don’t do my time
nor our love that was a crime

  the real me is lying beside you once again
... while my heart isn’t  doing hard  time to the end

Do you understand, that my heart
was  just doing  time
just to embrace you,  your body and mind
to have lived the moments
that I've cherished in our time
to have embraced you, your body and mind

My Sweetie is you

When I walked upon your trail
melting of our two souls...becoming as one
is an understatement below that August 14th sun

We lived the good and the bad...
hurt wasn’t our way
Cause I`ve known you  somewhere, someplace before
as we took that last stand...once more

Cause my Sweetie is you...oh...cause  my sweetie is you

At times I`ve  tasted your fears
wish I could’ve  taken away thoses years
Words can`t explain this to you
feelings intense, brought me for you

But change is needed one day, you know
with all the children gone, we need to go...
to the promised land where I once said...
Because of a message from a humble man you once knew flying among the angels he sent you
a letter,  I`d lie for you...

Let us listen... to his praise...
“And sometimes it seems I must
have lost  my mind
I might be crazy, but I`m crazy about you”

don’t you see?
cause my Sweetie  is you
... Cause my Sweetie  is you... oh... cause  my sweetie is you
... is you

I remember them

As years gone by
and winter days become summer nights
lying beside them
the scent of their skin
and the taste of their lies
I remember them
holding them, saying to them don't cry
chasing their ghosts away
out of their lives
I remember them
sweet... full of fear in their eyes
I remember them cry
Touching them  cold body in mind
and me keeping them warm inside
not letting them go
and tearing me up inside

The taste of their body next to mine
didn't lie
the look they gave to me
said already goodbye
I remember them
I remember them this time
Heartache after heartache
can I forget them
as the pain goes by
I remember them
one by one each single time
The way they felt on me
it was real everytime
and 1 lost 10 found became my line
I remember them
Now that I'm older
I meant it that night
for I remember them
As the women of my dark life gone by
