A calling ...

"We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims."

"Make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone."

New Lyrics

This song is for someone I care about who recently told me her sad story. While walking Mabel this morning, the lyrics kept evolving, so had to write them. Not like I have any time to strum my guitar or write poetry, but my ADD wouldn't let these lyrics die.

It wasn’t you


I was as blind as I could be.
It wasn’t you, it was me.
I had to find a girl more like me in the bars.

I was the guy who was corporate-clean.
My star was rising up AT&T.
Then I saw you in your blue jeans.

I had to know what I could buy you that night.
Your curls looked so heavenly in the moonlight.
I had to build you castles in the sand.

You were the cool girl I could never understand.
You were the darling of everyone in the band.
You stretched me like a rubber band until my heart snapped.

You never came. You never blamed. You never cried.
You just sat there stone faced when I dumped you.
Now I’m texting you again from the bar.

I’m going far. I’ll buy that car. Do you still miss me?
I’m on my way to that corner office.
In five years I’ll be worth my weight in gold.

Please never unfriend me on Facebook.
I wasn’t just some one night stand.
You were nothing I ever could have planned.

Follow me on Twitter. Please don’t be bitter.
Have a good life, but I'm moving on.
I have to find that girl who's more like me.
