  • 03:21 Story Lyrics Two Flames Burning

    There's two flames burning

    one is in my heart for you

    There's two flames burning

    both of them will see us through

     

    One is the fire in my heart

    the other is the fire in your heart

    There's two flames burning

    both of them will see us through

  • 03:47 Story Lyrics Don't Lie To Me

    Don't lie to me

    Don't lie to me

    Don't tell me tales

    Don't lie to me

    When I first met you

    everything came alive for the first time

    You were my sunshine

    you chased all my clouds away

    I loved you

    Don't lie to me

    Don't lie to me

    Don't tell me tales

    Don't lie to me

    I feel just like the sea

    taking that ship to that port and bringing it back again

    I've been so many times before I

    I just don't want to be the sea ... anymore

    ... I just don't want to be alone

    any more

  • 05:12 Story Lyrics Love is Broken

    You've taken all of my love

    and kept it to yourself

    You've tried to keep me hidden

    from the ladies that are my friends

    I feel our love has taken 

    up permanent ownership

    I feel our love is broken

    I never wanted this

    You can call me

    anytime you like

    You will always be

    a lover of my life

Go ahead, join.

I occasionally will update you with progress on my many life-projects.
