Should I Close My Eyes

Hi everyone! I taught some piano lessons today, and then I played a gig in Des Moines at The Lighthouse with Tim Turner and Billy Spaulding. Playing music in bars is a hard life, maybe someday soon I can find a different environment to play music in. Anyway, since arriving home an hour ago these words popped into my head along with a melody. Nighty night. xxoo

Should I Close My Eyes
Should I close my eyes
To the truth
Should I turn my back on me
Should I pretend
Everything is okay
While you keep disrespecting me
How far should I bend
To keep the fragile peace
How much should I take
You keep pushing my boundaries
Your addictions have
Turned your heart cold
You won’t listen to me
Your addictions have made you
Emotionally unavailable to everyone
But you can’t see
Should I close my eyes
To the truth
Should I blindly believe
Should I close my eyes to the truth
Should I betray me

  1. Respect & truth
    A two lane road
    That dances on
    A hopping toad
    A magnet falls
    Between two stars
    A pretty bassist
    Plays in bars
    Where are you?
    Where am I?
    Between us both
    Falls the sky
    Empty space
    Or is it now?
    Time will tell
    Oh yes, but how?
