Power Over Me

Poem By KMC Centlivre

You said the right words
You looked the right way
I looked your direction
I ‘ll never look away
I’m just looking for a way to find my way away from you
If I could only find it
I could lose you
Could I lose you?

Why did I ever let you into my life?
Now, I live all my life tryin’ to let you back out
just when I think “It’s over - I’m free”
you turn on your power over me.

I made promises
You made them, too
We made our lives hell
We both promised “I do”
If I promised you anything I promised you everything
Who wants to leave when it’s good?
I didn’t leave you
When did you leave me?

How did you know I would let you back in?
Why did I let you stay?
We always start out just where we begin
And then it always goes the same way
The same way…

Why did I ever let you into my life?
Now, I live all my life tryin’ to let you back out
just when I think “It’s over - I’m free”
you turn on your power over me.

(with a line or two from R. Mastry)

I hate the weather
I hate the cold
I hate the empty dusty roads
I hate the trees without no leaves

Johnny Went To Hollywood

Johnny went to Hollywood
Said he’s gonna be a star
Things didn’t turn out so good
Johnny’s livin’ in his car

Love Thy Neighbor

Jesus said a lot of things, Mohammed said them, too
Moses went to the mountaintop, Dr. King did, too
But, no one really listened to them
Instead they put their pictures on the wall

Worst Mistake

I made the worst mistake of my life
I ignored all the warnin’ signs
I made a hard left when I shoulda turned right
And made the worst mistake of my life

Space People

Have you heard of the people who live in the skies?
(I think I seen ‘em)
Some of them are short with big round black eyes
(I never seen them)

Same Ol' Things Happen Over And Over

Here you come again breaking my heart again
Wouldn’t feel so bad about it if I could live without it
I’d look the other way but, that won’t change yesterday
Wouldn’t feel so bad about it if you didn’t brag about it
