IF I COULD BE THE ONE …

IF I COULD BE the ONE

If I could be the one
Who never let you down
At the end of the world
I was still hanging ‘round
And everything I said
Turned out to be true
Especially the words
Forever I’d love you

Could you give your heart to me
Could it be a possibility
That you would overcome your fear
Let your emotions guide you dear
To be free
To fall in love with me

If I could be the one
Who always makes you smile
Tell you being with me
Is just your style
And when the skies above
Are not so blue
I will be the one
Always there for you

CHORUS

… instrumental …

Don’t worry my darling
I will never let you go
I will wait a life tome
‘cause I need to know

CHORUS

CHORUS

If I could be the one
Who never let you down
If I could be the one
Who never let you down
I will be the one
Who will never let you down
I will never let you down

NO MORE GUNS

Don’t let them say
That’s just the way things are
It’s as natural
As the sun and stars
We got people
Dying in the streets
And the video is on repeat

The way some things stay the same
Don’t justify the pain
Maybe it’s time for a change
Let’s not pretend all the past
Is something we want to last
No Maybes !
It’s time for a change

Don’t let them say
They have empathy
Send their prayers
Like that’s what we need
We all know
It’s about the greed
So they let us bleed
CHORUS
… instrumental

Big Money gets to say
How we live day to day
It’s been that way
10,000 years
They can no longer lead us blind
Now has come the time
When the profiteers
Don’t get their way ‘round here

CHORUS / CHORUS

It’s time to change
This insane way we live
And live a life of love
Above the money

EVERY TIME THE MUSIC STARTS

You can hear it on an old dirt road, through the noise of a crowded room. You can walk under a sun-baked sky, through the mist & haze of a midnight moon. You can look the other way (my friend) and know it off by heart. A history deep in your bones, every time the music starts. Every time the music starts, every time the music starts….  (C) Roger Dorey, May 26, 2013)

BOOZE & BLUES !!!

Have you ever utilized the medicinal properties of alcohol to rationalize the complexities of a love relationship that is no longer active, especially, if the ending was not your choice?

FIFTEEN BEERS, written by Roger Dorey, is a self-help guide through this transitional period.

And remember….

You can’t always choose who you love, but, you can always choose what you love.

Why Do They Call It The Blues

Why Do They Call It The Blues

Why do they call it the blues
Look out on the dance floor
And get so confused
Primal beats
Possess the band
Spread like a gospel
To every woman & man
Shake their legs
Shake their hips
Grope and groan
Like a death grip
That pagan music
Filled with strife
Resurrect a broken heart
Back to life
It’s a temple!
It’s a temple!
It’s a temple of lust!
No one can resist
Try as they must
Jumpin’ and wailin’
On fire with sin
If they call that prayin’
Where does it end
Wave upon wave
Lawd do believe
Moses oh mercy!
Couldn’t part that sea
How do they strut their stuff
God only knows
Guess if it hurts this bad
Anything goes
The pain and grief
Life puts one through
Goes into remission
When they play the blues

It’s a damn miracle
that’s what it is
A damn miracle
