You Are Gold

Copyright 2013 Lowvee Cole


Stars are out tonight

aligned up on the street

granite, pink, and brass repeat

And every step I take

your history falls at my feet

Another five points of arms reaching out to me


You are gold

You are bad

You are what I want to be

In every home

On every stand

In every heart

In every beat

You are gold

Yeah, I’m diggin that

You are gold

Yeah, I’m diggin that

Oh, oh, oh.


Paparazzi flashing images of you

They cash your happiness as proof

That all good things begin

with “Look at me!” and “Here I am!”

A hollow shout out

and I’m eatin’ out of your hands


I wanna be rich

Cue the flunkies

I wanna be glam

Photoshop me

I want a new life

The Hollywood scene

I Will Remember You

 

Copyright 2007 Lowvee Cole

 

There are people and places

made to carry us through our travels in this world

Some leave bad, some good traces

But with every little bit, there lay a lesson in those ruins

 

Sometimes, we run so far, so fast

we miss life’s meaning

Sometimes, the years, they whisper past

we get lost, and we soon forget

But I could never forget, no.

 

I will remember you

I will remember you

 

Now your journey is over

Mine’s just pulled into the lead

I can only hope that I mirror

the love, the faith your spirit grew here

 

The gift of your grace

will live on in me for now and all eternity

And when I leave this place

I pray that I’d have left half the mark you’ve made

Oh, what a beautiful mark you’ve made.

 

I will remember you

I will remember you

Let your sweet, sweet memory fill my mind

And in the kiss of that moment, I will celebrate your life

I will remember you

I will remember you

 


Let it Rain

Copyright 2007 Lowvee Cole

Lo, I do spy a faint glimpse of honey
in your smile
Won’t you let me in?
Then we’ll see where the day takes off to running
Mile for mile, we’ll become akin

You’ve got your six-string, a wedding ring
You’re thinking you’ve seen all of me baby
You’ve got a tongue sharp, I hear your bark,
aint never felt a bite quite so lazy
Go on and set it free
Let it rain down all on me

So, do you think that boy can handle my ambition?
Or will he choke?
Then up and run along
Join the fairy folk and dance into remission
Til he’s good and numb
Lost in songs unsung

You’ve got your six-string, a wedding ring
You’re thinking you’ve seen all of me baby
You’ve got a tongue sharp, I hear you bark,
aint never felt a bite quite so lazy
Go on and set it free
Let it rain down on me

Back your head out of the clouds
Talk that boy into a man
I’m the girl you’ve dreamed about
Oh, my love, you know I am,
You know I am


Don’t

Take my hand

I’ll lace my fingers in

We’ll swell with that

which we know all to soon we’ll no longer have

Long lost hope

has trailed off into smoke

to the place where dreams

have been beaten, burned, cremated by this disease


I’m breaking

You’re shaking

It’s taking all of you

I’m angry

You’re hurting

And I am on my knees begging for you to

Hold on Hold on

Don’t go, don’t, don’t you let go

Don’t. Don’t. Don’t.


Blow by blow

The ghost of you here grows,

hear the whispering

sound of death taking life by the grace of her key

Your heart beats cold

its center fills with stone

You’re to hang your cloak

the skin you are, but your not, for your soul has outgrown


All I know has gone south

Where to grow from here? From here?


Hidden

You can haunt me

start me, taunt me

through the space in my dreams

But you won’t catch me

break me, harm me

For you, I no longer bleed

 

And they’re pissing in black oceans laced with pieces of your ruins

A crown of disgrace marking your fate

air thick with shame’s perfume

Yeah, I’m here, and I’m hidden

still hidden by the tree

Yeah, I’m here, and I’m hidden

Still hidden by the tree

 

Oh how we love

a hero’s rescue

the grant of mercy

How you played on

my fear for silence

with money grown on trees

 

And they’re pissing in black oceans laced with pieces of your ruins

A crown of disgrace marking your fate

air thick with shame’s perfume

Yeah, I’m here and I’m hidden

still hidden by the tree

Yeah, I’m here and I’m hidden

still hidden by the tree

 

Take me where you can’t see shadows encroaching

Where light won’t shine true to soul

In that sacred place you wrought me

Steeling from me all the good and whole

Poison me with your whisper: Don’t you tell don’t you tell or else…
