I’ve grown older

But certainly not colder

In fact a bit bolder.

The more I know

The less I understand.

I try to read, but

The words have become blurred,

I cannot read them.

Not without help.

I rise from this lonely old bed to get my glasses.  Knowing I’ve laid dormant for too long.

And when I read your book

Every word says the same to me.

Love

Love

Love…

The beauty, the pain… the anticipation, the disappointment… the exhilaration, the sadness…the unfettered joy; the pure celebration of another persons life.

All expressed with a twinkle of your eye, better than 100,000 words

You are so pretty I forget the pain of what no longer is

and vow to love again… if only for a moment

 

 

YOU CAN’T COME

You can’t come,

And then leave so quickly.

Surround my head with you

And let me be in yours

Then act as if it never happened.

 

I’m not like the others

I saw into your eyes a fire.

That was fed by mine.

That warmed us both

 

It was all planned

My reactions, your  disappointments.

The debilitating frustration.

You’re always a victim…

Never a contributor.

 

I will not leave your head.

I will come again.

And again, and again and again.

BIG TIME

 

[featuring Keke on vocals and Motor City Josh on Guitar]

 

Big time loser…Acting like he lost something he never had.

Big time boozer…He’s acting happy when really he’s sad.

Big time lover…it’s been a long time since he’s been laid.

Big time spender…spends all of his time trying to get paid.

 

But big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone… big times… never last long.

Little sally Johnson

lived up in Wisconsin,

But she never really liked the snow,

So she packed up for Hollywood,

She thought she’d be doing good

If she could land a role in the show.

But she got rejected,

And it came so unexpected

That she took off for parts unknown

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone…’ big times… never last long.

 

And then there’s Timmy tough guy,

He walked away with a black eye..

He didn’t make it into round two

But he showed up on that night

And he put up his best fight,

That’s more than most men ever do.

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone… big times… never last long.

 

And poor Bobby Jones

He’s all skin and bones

Trying to sell his artwork at the fair.

But no one was buying

So he just quit trying,

and focused on braiding his daughter’s hair

Emily and I with her family in Quindío Colombia

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone…’cause big times never last long.

big times…never last long.

big times …

never last long.

Deeter’s Prayer

Thank you lord for these eyes that allow me to see what others overlook.

Thank you for the ears that hear sounds that others cannot comprehend.

For the tongue that lets me savor the hidden fruits of your garden.

The nose that smells the wildflowers scattered about the path.

And skin to feel the private passions of a true love.

 

And now I ask you, for just one moment, to take it all away

So that I can be one with you.

QUIERO CRUZAR RIOS

 

Quiero cruzar ríos, mares, montañas, con mi espada afilada y levantada a conquistarte

Como un gran Jinete del norte

Y levantarte del sillón y cargarte a la cama para que seamos un ser de un corazón,

De un latido con un ritmo de vida.

Sin temor, sin miedo, sin aprensión.S2200016

Quitar cualquier duda de tu alma como si fuera una prenda estorbando mi pasión

y dejar esa duda tirada en el piso.

Como si no fuera nada…ya vencida.

 

Otra vez siento algo en mi corazón

Otra vez tengo esperanzas de

Sentir amor en mis brazos

De conocer cada aliento, cada suspiro, cada mirada,

Sea sorpresa, miedo, deseo, cariño, rabia, o amor.

He hecho errores, es cierto

En los momentos de más necesidad

Te he empujado por afuera

O te buscaba y no te encontraba.

Pero aun estas allí.

Y cualquier distancia será poquita

Te siento como si

Estuvieras sentada en el sillón

y yo en la silla

 

Anhelando tenerte en mis brazos haciendo el amor apasionado

Anhelando ver el éxtasis en tu cara que solamente viene de la confianza de ser amada

Anhelando ver tu cuerpo desnudo, agotado, dormido a lado del mío

Anhelando un beso húmedo y caliente después de una noche de platica y risas

Ansiando un saludo

Sweet Sweet Swallow

Sweet sweet swallow
Fly back home
We built this nest together
But I can make it alone.

Sweet sweet swallow
I’ll never say goodbye,
I’ll be with you forever
So spread your wings and fly

And I’ll fly with you wherever you are
And you’ll be with me in my heart

Sweet sweet swallow
You’ll never fly away.
I’ll be flying right by your side
The whole way

Sweet sweet swallow
Don’t be scared
Reach your wing out and touch my hand
It will always be there.

And I’ll fly with you wherever you are
And you’ll be with me in my heart

Sweet sweet swallow
Fly away
Sweet sweet swallow
It’s ok… It’s ok…It’s ok

The River

I

 

I know a girl

She liked to get kinky

She liked to get sweaty

And she liked to get stinky

She liked to make love

In public places

She’d wear loose clothes

And make funny faces

She liked to go down

on judges and cops

But then she got busted

And she had to stop

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.

 

I used to run

With a dangerous crowd

We liked to get drunk

And we liked to get loud

Then one day

We got out the forty=five

Man I was lucky to get out alive

I hear Tommy’s

Still on the run

It’s a big price to pay

For a little bit of fun

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.

 

Well Billy Bob

Didn’t think twice

’bout laying down

With his neighbor’s wife

Neighbor came home

Caught him in his bead

put two bullets

In Billy Bob’s head

Now poor Billy is

Dead and gone

Never got a chance

To hear my song

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.
