  9. Suggestions Appreciated "Rushing"

    Thanks, Mike. Good thoughts. The theme of the song is slowing down after retiring, and preparing to start a new phase of life, starting again. Having done just that, I was amazed how challenging it was. Does that make more sense? David
  10. Suggestions Appreciated "Rushing"

    You comments appreciated, many thanks. Rushing David Ritchie Staring at this strange new ground taking in the things I’ve found, I’d best sit back not dance so fast ‘cause time is short let’s make the music last Chorus: So let’s raise our hands And lift our glass Enjoy our life before it’s past Live life fully, make it last I’m thankful for the life I’’ve had It’s always been with you I chanced upon you long ago Changed my point of view Now let’s try that road less traveled There’s no need for us to rush We’ll slow down and find our way And dance in the middle of the day Chorus: So let’s raise our hands And lift our glass Enjoy our life before it’s past Live life fully, make it last Have you ever lost serenity With never ending rushes A time where things don’t seem to matter Do you dream of places faraway Prepare ourselves to start again That’’s a lesson hard to learn Follow our passions we’ll be fine And of the future…….unconcerned.
  11. I would appreciate your comments/suggestions, please. David Wonder If I’ll Ever Get Home David Ritchie When I step out on that highway I wonder if I’ll ever get home Two thousand miles away I wonder if I’ll ever get home It’s hot early in the morning Daytime’s hotter still I hope someone’ll find me walkin’ And let me rest a little while It’s way too early in the morning To be on my torn down way An’ I ain’t got no place to stay So I’ll just get on goin’ Chorus: (more intense) Walk on, walk on, boy, walk on I lived my life too fast Gotta’ slow down ain’t got no choice ‘cause there’s a ball o’ fire ahead! C’mon man, pick up that shoe Put it out as far as it will go Cain’t you move it on, cain’t you move it on Cain’t you move it, my man I wonder if I’ll ever get home Before the sun go down for good I wonder if I’ll ever get home It’ll be a dark and dangerous day Chorus: (more intense) Walk on, walk on, boy, walk on I lived my life too fast Gotta’ slow down ain’t got no choice ‘cause there’s a ball o’ fire ahead! Well, I ain’t got no time to lose Don’t wanna be late, my life’s at stake I’m going home, man, I’m goin’ home I’m goin’ home, my man, I’m goin home.

  13. Impressions Welcome

    Appreciate your critique. Under a Well-Lit Moon David Ritchie what was I feelin' when i jumped up on that train goin' down south gonna do some healin' It's a hard way to get there but i'm goin' on that way legs hangin' outta this boxcar towns flyin' by Chorus: so i'll wish you goodbye an' hope we'll meet again but it won't be the same on that you can rely I'm fightin' some unholy war knowin' that I can't win sittin' out on a cold, cold morning an' watch the sunrise burn the sky when the well-lit moon comes into view it's just an eye movin' by passin' judgment, makin' me cry Every now and then we'd pass thru another darkened universe i'd lay back like this greasy boxcar was just a dirty hearse Chorus: so i'll wish you goodbye an' hope we'll meet again but it won't be the same on that you can rely There ain't no new way of dying aint' no new way to be lonely it's always seems to be the same But I just keep on tryin' Chorus: so i'll wish you goodbye an' hope we'll meet again but it won't be the same on that you can rely Under a Well-Lit Moon.docx

  15. Leaving Eden David Ritchie We were born under cover of darkness But when you came to light there were lovely changes And watching you emerge just left me speechless You were a little shy with happy eyes and a touch of hot flirtation! Well, Adam was no lover, until he fell for Eve And Eden was no garden before that magic day That we both felt our bodies come to believe That Eden’s not the place where we learn to betray! Chorus: We’ve all been given promises by smiling sellers Smoking panatelas and speaking in tongues They sell tender hearts to the highest bidders But once they get their hands on you the trap is sprung! A little shy with teasing eyes you turned to me ‘c’mon, let’s go”! You said “let’s get away”. Eden is a place to love and be loved in return My head was full of questions of what our life could be I’m what you want and why you came ‘cause I’m your destiny! And my love came undone began to wake and shine, in that moment you danced across my path and told me life is sweet depends upon the one you meet so let’s leave our lonely hearts behind make this journey complete. Close and fade out: My head was full of questions of what our life could be I’m what you want and why you came ‘cause I’m your destiny! My head was full of questions of what our life could be I’m what you want and why you came ‘cause I’m your destiny!
