Home Shall Remain

How can a father let his children go?
Leave their hands... Let them grow 
What will become of them? He might not know
But he must let them go

How does a father say the words good-bye  
See their eyes... Watch them cry
Not knowing all the simple wheres or why
Quickly the years flew by

What does he do to make them understand 
This is not, as he planned 
He never dreamed that he'd let go their hand 
No longer in command 

Now that they've gone and he is all alone 
Home no longer, feels like home 
Gone with the wind his little birds have flown 
Life's journey now their own

But here in his heart... 
They've no need to fear
As home shall remain... Right here 

Sweet Summer Song

When the leaves fell in autumn, and scattered the ground 
They colored the grass in their reds and their browns 
While the sun still shone brightly, through the chill of the air
The trees standing barren, striped naked and bare 

And the birds sang no more in the silence of day 
They had joined the migration, and flown far away
It was then that i missed them, as something felt wrong 
For what is this life without the sweetest of song? 
What is this life without the sweetest of song?

When the rain began falling from clouds in the sky 
A teardrop of sadness escaped from my eye
I listened... but nothing, was all i could hear
I looked up above but the sky was still clear

The birds sang no more in the silence of day 
They had joined the migration, and flown far away
It was then that i missed them, as something felt wrong 
For what is this life without the sweetest of song? 
What is this life without the sweetest of song? 

The wind came a-calling and whistled out loud 
It blew out the rain and removed every cloud 
But the skies remained empty, there was nothing at all
No orchestra played from the creatures so small

'Fore the birds sang no more in the silence of day 
They had joined the migration, and had flown far away
It was then that i missed them, as something felt wrong 
For what is this life without the sweetest of song? 
What is this life without the sweetest of song? 

Now the winter draws near, with its blanket of cold
Another year ends with another year old 
As i wait for the songs that this heart of mine yearns
I long for the spring when the singing returns 

When the birds sing their songs in the warmth of the day 
Back home from the place, where they flew far away
That time when i missed them, when something felt wrong 
For what is this life without their sweet summer song? 
What is this life without their sweet summer song?

Fall Apart

I see her fall apart...
But there is nothing i can do to ease her pain
I'm too ashamed that she has come undone by me again 
She smashes everything at hand
She claws the badly painted walls
I want to reach out to her 
And catch her as she falls

But all i do is watch her 
As she screams out something i can't hear
Her words they flow so freely but they somehow disappear 
The shadows they drip everywhere 
I call her name but she's not there 
Her eyes... Just look at me and stare

And then she rushes up to me
I pull her closely to my chest 
Her heart beats heavy next to mine beneath her trembling breast 
She cries upon my shoulder
Like this pain she feels is something new 
And then she catches me 
Before i fall to pieces too

Old Joe

Old Joe pulled the wagon forward
Pots went jangle on its side 
Little children tucked up warmly 
Rocked to sleep upon the ride 
Old Joe's hooves kept steady rhythm 
Through the lonely lanes ahead 
Up above the sunset settled 
Turning sky a shade of red
Old Joe, ever faithful leading
Vardo wheels roll close behind 
Come the morning he can rest 
His harness they will then unbind 
Old Joe free to wander meadows 
Underneath the new days sun
Family safe at destination 
Old Joe's work now done

You Are...

Not a day goes by i don't think of you 
I close my eyes... You are in my view 
Your flowing hair and your eyes so bright 
You're my guiding star, my eternal light 
You're the moon, You're the sun, You're the universe 
You're the ocean deep, in which i immerse 
You are heaven itself, as the angels sing 
You're the beat of my heart... You are everything

Tales Of Old

Come gather round my children
This campfires burning bright 
I'll tell you of our history 
As smoke turns into night 
It's all about the old days 
When life was fancy free
These tales of old, long in the past 
My father told to me
He would sit beside the fire
With his pipe held in his hand...
And drift away to places seldom seen 
And he'd tell the tales of old
Through the hardships and the cold
And he'd take us to the places he had been 

Back then the roads we travelled 
In caravans and horse 
We'd leave the last place in our tracks
And move with no remorse 
My father lead the way
With his family close behind 
A better place in fields ahead
He had the skills to find
Then he'd sit beside the fire
With his pipe held in his hand...
And drift away to places seldom seen 
And he'd tell the tales of old
Through the hardships and the cold
And he'd take us to the places he had been

When winter snows were falling 
We'd settle through the storm 
My father told me at this time 
Was when his son was born 
And like the troubled winds 
That blew from overhead 
"You'll travel with them endlessly" 
Is what my father said
As he sat beside the fire
With his pipe held in his hand...
Where he'd drift away to places seldom seen 
And he'd tell the tales of old
Through the hardships and the cold
And he'd take us to the places he had been

My mother did the chores 
And my sisters helped her cook 
I helped my father build the camp
Fetched water from the brook
We sat and ate our meals 
By the fire 'most every night
And listened to the tales of old
Beneath the pale moonlight
We would sit beside the fire
Watch the pipe held in his hand...
And drift away to places seldom seen 
As he'd tell the tales of old
Through the hardships and the cold
And he'd take us to the places he had been

One day you'll tell your children
These stories you have heard 
You'll tell them of the gypsy way
As in your fathers word
So get yourselves to bed now
This day is nearly done 
We're on the road come morning 
With the rising of the sun
Let me sit beside the fire 
With my pipe held in my hand... 
And drift away to places seldom seen 
Go dream the tales of old 
There are new ones to be told
When i take you to the places i have been 


When i had turned just sixteen 
I headed out alone
I'd come in search of someplace 
Where i could call a home 
I took a night boat ferry 
And i headed over sea
I'd never travelled in my life
But a traveller i would be

The ferry docked in England 
And i stepped upon this land 
With nothing but a suitcase 
And a little hope in hand 
I got on board my first train 
And hurtled 'long the track 
My journey heading northwards 
There was no turning back

I made my way through cities 
Saw buildings standing tall 
I read the many slogans 
On the sides of every wall 
The grey became more greener
And i knew that i was here 
The clouds that journeyed with me 
Seemed to fade then disappear 

Arriving there in Yorkshire 
Where my destination ends 
I soon could rest my weary head 
Amongst my new found friends 
They welcomed me as stranger 
Like folks of Yorkshire do
And showed me all its beauty 
In a land forever true 

And living in the rose was where i'd longed for all along 
A place where i was welcome and a land where i belonged 
My heart would take her in...  Just like an old and faithful friend 
And she will stay right there within me till the end 

I walked the dales many times 
I'd climb the highest hills
As smoke poured from the factories 
And red brick dressed the mills 
I'd marvel at her beauty 
And fall in love with her 
The "home" within my thankful heart 
Is how i would refer 

I grew up in her glory 
She'd comfort me at night 
But inside i felt something deep
A feeling i must right
And with her endless blessing 
She showed me i was free
She'd turned a boy into a man
And all he came to be

Many years had passed by
And i packed my bags to leave 
To my rose i'd say goodbye 
Without her i would grieve 
I headed southwards hurting
To my birthplace i'd return 
But never does a day go by
For her i do not yearn 

And living in the rose was where i'd longed for all along 
A place where i was welcomed and a land where i belonged 
My heart would take her with me.... like an old and faithful friend 
And she will stay right here within me till the end...  
She will stay right here within me till the end

Twinkle Twinkle little star
I will shoot you from afar 
Aim my arrows one by one 
Pierce the moon and spear the sun 
When you fall from out the sky 
One by one you're sure to die 
Leaving only darkness here 
As light will disappear 

True Love

I said that i could die for you
Though i did not say i would 
But you've hurt me one too many times 
So maybe now i should
Is that what you expect from me?
Would that be your desire?
To hang right here in front of you
And dangle from this wire

You said that you'd do anything 
You said you loved me so 
You'd walk through hell and back again
So that's where you should go
It's not that i don't love you dear
I'm just so hard to please 
So i'll mutter a little player for you
While I'm down here on my knees 

I'll not forgive you handsome one 
I've loved you oh so long 
And with every step on this ladder high
I will curse you every rung
This wire i shall wrap around 
And jump so you shall see 
You'll never find a truer love
Who will please as much as me

I'll sit and watch you darlin'
And marvel as you sway 
As love has never meant so much
Until this fucking day 
Please leave your eye's wide open dear
So that you might see me cry 
As i'll love you now forevermore
Of that i'll not deny 

I'll sway for you forever dear
I'll haunt you as you sleep
And drown you in my flowing tears 
This promise i shall keep
And when you join me once again 
Our love shall always be
Together we will walk through hell
For all eternity

Man From Nowhere

I heard the wind a-screaming 
Like a dog caught on a barbed wire fence 
A howling that could chill the soul 
A crying so intense 
I pulled my coat around me 
But i couldn't keep the freezing wind
From rattling my bones and penetrating my defense 
And so i travelled endlessly 
The moon my only shelter 
As i made my way to anywhere 
Amidst this bastard storm 
And then the rain came pissing down 
I thought that i was sure to drown 
The rain it gathered round my head 
Like insects in a swarm 
The mud beneath my aching feet 
It seemed to drag me down beneath
Like demons clawing at me
From the dense and sticky soil 
I battled with those demons and i left them in my footprints
As this journey was becoming more 
A sacrificial toil
I never found nirvana 
But i found a place to rest my head 
The storm it blew a farewell kiss and died without a fight
And when i woke up screaming it was obvious 
That nothing changed 
Today i had to struggle with the hot unholy light 
The sun it was a-beating down 
It scorched much like the fires of hell 
And so i travelled on and on 
With still no place to dwell 
This story does not have an end 
It's just about a man from nowhere 
So i say goodbye to you
My one and only friend 

Johnny, Dear Johnny

Johnny, dear Johnny, since you sailed away 
Now a year, seven months and a day 
But your ship it has not yet returned 
Though my heart it has hungered and yearned 

Oh Johnny, dear Johnny, my only true love
Do you see me in stars high above?
How i've prayed on those nights all alone
For the wind to blow you back home 

Johnny, dear Johnny, I've cried every day
From the moment you drifted away 
You remained with me here in my heart 
Though the tides have kept us apart

Oh Johnny, dear Johnny, the sea is so deep 
Like the promise you swore you would keep 
On this shore I'll be waiting for you 
For your sails to come into view 

Johnny, dear Johnny, did you die in the waves?
Did you and your crew meet their watery graves?
As the sea and the breeze seem to whisper goodbyes 
Bringing sadness and tears to my eyes 

Oh Johnny, dear Johnny, please come back to me
Then become the husband you promised to be
Don't leave me alone for another day more 
And honor that promise you swore

Crimson Bed

There's nothing in this crimson bed
Just stains of past from love long dead
No warmth to wrap around me tight 
To cease the chill that comes with night
And in this cold and crimson bed 
No dreams come to my weary head 
Just nightmares that reflect my pain 
Again, again, again, again 
And in this crimson bed i sleep 
I gave my soul the lord to keep
Incase the morning i don't wake 
An angel i may never make
There's nothing in this crimson bed
Just stains from times in which i've bled 
The only time I'm ever warmed
Is when those stains are formed 


I fall
Like a penny flipped 
On its descent 
Tumbling downwards 
Lost just like that penny spent 
Unsure if i'll rise again
Just falling, falling 
Down i go 
Will i land 
Or keep on falling 
Only time shall know 


The light cascaded beautifully 
Upon the silk sheet bed 
The candle threw its shadows 
On the wall above her head 
She looked much like a sculpture 
With her features all on show 
Exuberant and unrestrained 
Amidst the candles glow 
Her eyes were so magnificent 
Like jewels not yet discovered 
Yet here she lay in full display 
The greatest gift uncovered 
And then the slightest breath beside me
Proves that she is real
As never could a dream express
The love in which i feel

The Visitors

I'm gonna tell you my story... 
Well it's more a heinous crime
It all started with a woman 
Who i swore forever mine 
I followed her one evening 
Where she disappeared from view 
Confirming my suspicions 
All the accusations true 

I waited under lamplight 
And if you listen to me friend 
You may understand my reason 
It's not hard to comprehend 
I watched her walk back out the door 
And scurry through the night 
I had a cigarette to calm my nerves 
Until the time was right 

Well i crept through that door 
Much like a thief... You understand! 
A knife clenched in the fingers 
Of my numb and steady hand 
I looked around the confides 
Of the small disheveled room 
I smelled the filthy stench of her
That cheap as her perfume 
Well he lay there in the crumpled sheets 
So satisfied and still 
Contented with betrayal 
And the cheapest form of thrill 
I stood there for a while 
Breathing silently and calm 
Remembering my visit here 
Was purely just to harm 

He didn't see me strike 
But saw the glint upon my blade 
I sat beside him on the bed 
And heard the noises that he made 
A gurgling of horror 
As his hands grasped at his throat 
His chances of survival 
Were increasingly remote
I sat awhile... Maybe more 
As i wanted him to see
The reason he was dying now
Was not the fault of me 
But that of course, his visitor 
The one who brought me here 
"And will be mine forevermore"
I whispered in his ear

I sneaked out from the doorway 
And lit another cigarette 
To satisfy the pleasure 
That all killers seem to get 
I headed home uncertain 
If i'd find her there at home 
But smiled upon returning
To see her lying all alone 
I curled up close and comfortable
She smelled so sweet, her skin was clean
She never even asked me where i was, or where i'd been 
I smiled at her with innocents, and saw excitement in her eyes 
Then made love to this angel in my devilish disguise 


I'm never sure about the cure 
A tablet seems to do more harm 
The damage caused unseen by all 
That drives you to the funny farm
I get on board its roller coaster 
Taken to its highs and lows 
Where it stops is so uncertain 
No one ever knows
Get on board and travel with me 
Through each bend and twisted turn
See how quickly you are pleading 
For a safe and soft return 
Still my problem goes unanswered 
Does the tablet ease the pain?
Or does that little pill I swallow
Make me more insane?

More Each Day

You know when we began 
The first time that i swam
To the bottle of your glass 
Those years have gone so fast
I dived into your depths 
Now i have nothing left
Just the friend i have in you 
And all you made me do 
I've cursed you many times 
I've witnessed all your crimes 
But i can't let you go 
I think somehow you know 
And when you are away
I miss you more each day 
On you i do depend 
My one and only friend 
At times i need you near 
At times it's you i fear 
What if you went away? 
Returned again someday 
I'd welcome you again 
Let you inflict your pain 
No matter what come may
I hate you more each day 
But then i take you in 
My one and only sin 
I wonder who's to blame? 
To you it's just a game 
The loser takes a fall
The gambler loses all 
I love you more each day 
No matter what i say 
I need you this I know 
So please don't ever go 
I don't know what i'd do...
Without you.

Let Me Come In

I'm standing at your doorway
Will you welcome me in? 
Excuse me of the life i've led 
I'm riddled with sin
I've begged you for forgiveness 
Shed my bones and my skin
Now I'm here my lord... let me come in 

I've always been a prisoner 
And never set free 
Were you the one who linked the chains 
Once tethering me?
A lifetime spent in hell 
When you could have turned the key
I'm here my lord... Let me be free

If you are the saviour
Let your candle shine bright
Guide me from darkest 
Take me out of this night 
Show me your halo
With its shimmering light
I'm here my lord... Help me ignite 

I'm standing at your doorway
Will you welcome me in? 
Excuse me of the life i've led 
And cleanse me of sin
I'm begging for forgiveness 
Is this where i begin?
I'm here my lord... let me come in

Behind The Mask

I wear my mask, as it hides my face 
The ugly truth, my dark disgrace 
Without it, i can't stand to see 
The monster looking back at me 
And when my mask is pushed aside 
I have no place in which to hide
So face my demons all alone 
And hate the man who's shown 

World In Her Eyes

Look for the girl who holds the world in her eyes
Push back the hurt, let go your fears and your lies
Aim for her heart, be sure your target is true 
And here you'll find the words you already knew

So be kind, when you find
The one you've been searching for 
Don't be blind, your fates signed 
She's all you wanted and more 

Look for the girl who holds the stars in her eyes 
Push back the pain, unbind those fastening ties 
Be sure to tell her that you'll never let go 
And then she'll tell you all you needed to know

So be kind, when you find
The one you've been searching for 
Don't be blind, your fates signed 
She's all you wanted and more  

Look for the girl who holds the moon in her eyes
Push back the lows and concentrate on the highs
Then keep her near, nothing to fear, you'll know that she was the one
As in her eyes, you'll see the rise of the sun 

So be kind, when you find
The one you've been searching for 
Don't be blind, your fates signed 
She's all you wanted and more

True Heart

I know I'm not handsome 
And I've never been smart 
But if you look past my faults
You will find a good heart
A heart that is loyal
Its beat ever true
Its symphony played
Is inspired by you 
Well that might not seem much
But it's something that's real
And now that I've told you 
The way that i feel
Do you now see me different?
Do you like what i say?
Or should i silence the music 
The orchestras play

Friday, October 6, 2017


You wake up yawning, it's the morning 
Sunshine lights another day
You eat your breakfast, have a coffee
Everything's ok.
You start the car and drive to work
And do your duties well
The clock ticks slowly, nearly done
You're feeling pretty swell.
You drive on home, and have a shower
Then rustle up some grub 
You make a call to meet some friends 
Then hurry down the pub.
You have a drink, and then one more 
A laugh with your good friends 
Everything is perfect, well...
Of course that then depends.
You stagger from the local, unaware that something's wrong 
You sing out loud the lyrics from a jukebox favorite song 
You're nearly home, when suddenly, the car comes into view
It's driver paralytic, aims the vehicle at you.
There's nowhere you can run to, and there ain't nowhere to hide
The car screams ever nearer, and the tires start to slide
You never had a chance, yet if you'd woken feeling ill 
Fate would not have intervened, and you'd be living still.

They All Hang In Here

They all hang in here...
Like baubles dangling from a christmas tree
Lifeless souls, reaching, screaming 
Calling out to me
When daylight turns to darkness
It's then that they appear 
Swinging in their death masks
Like a morbid chandelier 
The noose cuts deep within the flesh 
They stare with hollow eyes 
It seems that fear continues 
Long after someone dies 
They all hang in here...
On rope that binds them tight 
And yet...
They disappear like angels 
After switching on the light

Cry For You

All i can do is to cry for you
I haven't the courage to die for you
If i had the strength, then i just might do
But instead i'll just cry for you

Maybe i'll try say a prayer for you
A something in which i could swear to you
In words that were loyal, to pull you through 
But that is so hard to do

What if i told you i'd die for you!
Is that you're intention for me to do?
Be the ultimate sacrifice, strong and true 
But would you then cry for me?

Sunday, September 24, 2017


Moves, are merely distractions 
Eyes, only pools of lies
Souls, remain lost eternal 
Truth, is when someone dies 
Tears, tell of how we suffer 
Breath, is of some relief 
Death, becomes something sacred 
Love, is but false belief

Fifty Shots Of Whiskey

I'm pissed and i am pissed off
But i ain't going down
Many think that one more drink 
This man is gonna drown 
I'm tanked up like a fucking tank, ready for a fight
And fifty shots of whiskey couldn't knock me out tonight

I'm lookin' for ya bastard 
You better run and hide 
You have a gang that's with you 
But the devil's at my side
My bark may slur a little, but this dog is gonna bite
And fifty shots of whiskey couldn't knock me out tonight

And when i find ya bastard
The bells of hell will ring 
I kid you not, it's gonna hurt
These fists are gonna swing 
I'll hit you with a left hook, then floor you with a right
And fifty shots of whiskey couldn't knock me out tonight 
Said fifty shots of whiskey couldn't knock me out tonight... Boom!

Passing Through

I sit here reminiscing 
Of days long in my past
Those years have travelled swiftly  
They've come and gone so fast 
Those times spent round the campfire 
Where flames danced through the night 
Leaving smoldering embers 
As dawn replaced its light 

Those friends who were my brothers
In caravans called home 
They were the closest family 
That this man had ever known 
We'd smoke what nature gave us 
While music filled the air 
What little we all had back then 
We'd find enough to share

We found a place to settle 
A road side with a view 
Beside a rolling river
Like us just passing through 
The hills a welcome shelter
From winters hard to bare
I'd never found a place called home
Like i had found right there 

That fire keeps on burning
It warms my soul and heart
That family still remains with me
However far apart
And like that river passing through
We'll meet again sometime
I'll keep our fire burning 
In this gypsy heart of mine


Lucinda once a woman who'd been buried many years ago
Now tired of her resting she crawled from the grave she laid 
She didn't understand her neighbors, comfortable and cozy 
Who had visitors who knelt with them and listened as they prayed 
Lucinda once a woman, was a woman men would marry
She'd had the bluest eyes that any man had ever seen
And often at her fancy she would lay right down beside them
And take those men to places where no man had ever been
Lucinda walked for miles towards her final destination 
And soon stood at the doorway of her well remembered home
He hadn't moved her key from underneath the garden rock 
And so she walked right in to find the bastard sleeping all alone
Lucinda stood awhile and she just gazed upon the man
The very man who'd killed her with the poison that he gave
She saw a bottle by his side and thought that she might do the same
And send this vile creature to his well deserving grave
Lucinda though had other plans and slid beneath the silky sheets
And put an arm around him in the way she used to do
It wasn't long before the pig beside her gave a smile
Aware that down beneath the sheets anticipation grew
Lucinda sat upon him and she let him have his moment
He opened up his eyes and gave an agonizing cry 
The woman that he'd murdered was the corpse that sat upon him
The very one he'd poisoned and had watched once slowly die
Lucinda felt his heart as it beat heavy in his heaving chest
It stopped just like a broken clock and didn't make a sound
She felt a little tired and so returned back to the graveyard
Where at last she found her peace beneath the cemetery ground 


Franchesca was a little girl who loved her father dearly 
She sobbed her little heart out crying "Daddy can you hear me?"
The darkness she was deeply in had shrouded him from sight 
And everything surrounding her was black and pitch as night 
Her father sat beside her with his head held in his palms 
Remembering the baby that he once held in his arms 
He raised his head to see Franchesca pale in her bed 
Before the nurses sterile gaze confirmed his daughter dead 


It once was told a house was built upon a silent hill, and stood there in the shadows now for many, many years
It's true to say that many often passed the door that filled them with an inner dread that preyed upon their deepest, darkest fears
But long ago this very place was home to sweet Imelda, who would run around its structure through the dark and empty halls 
It's said she had a gift, and she would see them as they freely moved around the house, then disappear behind the solid walls
No one ever visited, and as the seasons hurried by, a lonely woman lived within this dark and damp abode  
And with the passing years, the cracks and peeling paint were of an age in which this shadowed home of hers was miserably showed 
When passers by came close they'd hear the sobbing of Imelda, that would break the heart of any living thing that came to care
But all would keep their distance, as the fear was overwhelming... Imelda had her demons who were locked away in there
The voices that were heard were incoherent in a whisper, like the wind that sent a frozen finger running down a spine 
The sun would never shine upon the broken tiled rooftop, and the passers by would see this as a supernatural sign
So poor Imelda passed away and no one mourned her sorry soul, but still her sobs are heard as though she never really died 
And to this day not one has ever had the nerve to turn the handle of the creaking door of hers and visit her inside

Scarborough Fear

If you should go to Scarborough fair 
There's a field of heather and thyme 
Where the breeze shall whisper the name 
Of a girl that used to be mine 
In this field of purple and green 
Under rocks that lay on the ground
Lies my love who never returned 
Lies my love who's never been found 
It was there where i laid her down
Where the crows all witnessed my crime 
While i placed the stones on her grave 
In that field of heather and thyme

Beneath The Mask

If only i could find a way
To help me cope throughout the day
Without my mask for all to see
The ugliness bestowed on me
These eyes that i have grown to hate
This face i'd gladly mutilate 
So god himself won't recognize 
My mask, my face, my true disguise 
Yet under cover, my facade 
Of skin and bone this mess is made 
The mask itself protecting me 
From those that wish to see

House Of Pain

I built a house upon a hill
A little place to get my thrill
All visitors that dared to come
Would be my kick, my bit of fun
I had the hooks to hang them high 
I'd bleed their bodies till they dry
And sharpened knives would glint and shine 
Within this killers morbid shrine 
Screams would echo through the halls 
But no one hears the victims calls
Just those who came not seen again 
Could understand the house of pain 
And in this shack upon the hill 
It's guaranteed that blood will spill 
As I'm the landlord, ghoul and host 
And murder is what i like most

A Little Room For Me

I wondered where you went to
I looked but you weren't there
I thought that i might follow
But with thought i didn't dare
I ask that you might listen 
I was blind and couldn't see 
My prayer is you might try to find 
A little room for me

I threw myself in darkness 
Found the place called Babylon 
Not knowing of the hurt I'd find
Believing it was fun
I've worked hard for redemption 
Packed my bags so i could flee 
And I'm asking you to try and leave
A little room for me

My lies were only mortal 
Now stains I've left behind 
A lifetime spent deceiving 
Now seeks for peace of mind
I've thrown away my hatred 
From sins i've broken free 
And all i need to know is there
A little room for me

I've called your name a thousand times
Yet not heard your reply
I've gazed at every shining star 
Not one has caught my eye
Amidst this vast eternal 
I hope there just might be
A chance that you have saved a space
A little room for me
