Brewtality's Poems and Lyrics

Postby Brewtality » Wed Jan 04, 2017 9:46 am

Here's a thread to keep my brain farts in order on here. I'll be adding periodically as I'm writing quite a lot at the moment. These are all from the past couple of weeks....

She Said / Don't Follow
(When you should just be friends...)


"We're only fooling around,
It's nothing serious",
She said.

"No feelings, just friends,
We'll keep it simple",
She said.

"We're both grown up and and we know what we want,
Known each other for years so nothing's gonna go wrong",
But when you find something you never thought that you'd have,
Then there's no more choice and you can never go back.

She said
I followed
She said
"I'm falling"
She said
"It's so easy"
She said
"Babe, I'm leaving"

She said "I'm leaving. Don't follow"...

"We used to have our fun,
I miss it"
She said.

"Do you regret what we did?
I think that I do"
She said.

Holding you as we're lying in bed,
And I'm thinking of words I wish I'd never have said,
I go back to the corner we should never have turned,
And I'm still not sure that there's a lesson I've learned...

She said
I followed
She said
"I'm falling"
She said
"It's so easy"
She said
"Babe, I'm leaving"

She said "I'm leaving. Don't follow"...

Folked Up


Your promise came to me upon the wind,
Whispers of a dream I wished would never end.
Like a flower to the sun, I'll gladly bend,
And catch the holy light and love you send.

Now I,
Fell it moving through me.
How'd I,
Let the world get to me?

I feel it coming on like a fever,
How could I be so wrong?
Naive believer...

A promise atrophied to nothing,
As it leaves your lips.
Your insincere shadow,
Is casting an eclipse.
So take the lies and keep them,
Where nobody else can hear.
Buried in the darkness,
Where you go to disappear.

Ebb & Flow

(An ode to the non-existence of death...)


A star dies, so long ago,
But here we are still basking in the glow.
How we misplay our game of time,
Believing we live only to die.

Part of me is now a part of you,
Now turn this lead to gold and find your truth.
'Cause as below, so we are above,
Don't ask for meaning, find your own 'because'.

So just let go,
Be the ebb & flow,
Ride the waves and don't pretend you'll ever know.
Because we are everything that's ever been,
And everything that ever will.

Just let go,
Sit back, enjoy the show,
Ride the waves and don't pretend you'll ever know.
We only read what's on the page we're shown,
And what comes after, none of us will ever know.

A Thousand Miles Apart
Not been too lucky in love recently. Kinda fell for a friend of mine which was a bad idea...


Talk to me,
About missed opportunities.
Don't talk to me,
'Cause I need no apologies.

Oh, when you point your finger,
Then three point back,
And it's only you,
Who can change your path.

And you can ask your questions,
You can pray to God,
N'if there's someone listening,
Won't you please smarten me up?

It's feeding time again,
But some holes they just cannot be filled.
Reason loses once again,
And I can't find my way back in,
It looks as though I'm right back at the start:
A thousand miles apart.

I've come to be,
One with my vulnerability.
Life on the breeze,
I throw my heart into the sea.

'Cause when there's nothing left,
But the same old things,
No words can tell you,
What I'm trying to sing.

And you can ask your questions,
You can pray to God,
N'if there's someone listening,
Won't you please smarten me up?

It's feeding time again,
But some holes they just cannot be filled.
Reason loses once again,
And I can't find my way back in,
It looks as though I'm right back at the start:
A thousand miles apart.

The Fire Song
This one is a bit more energetic and poppy and I'll make sure to upload a recording in the music section ASAP.

So here we are my friend,
Going round and round again,
Dancing without touching,
Are you going to let me in?

A spark becomes a flame,
And I've burned myself again,
But I'll sit waiting patiently,
For you to let me in.

And 'till the waiting game is done,
And the clouds become the sun,
Until we've said it ten more times,
I'll ignore the signs.

So here we are my friend,
Going round and round again,
Dancing without touching,
Will you ever let me in?

CHORUS

I can't start the fire,
When there's nothing left to burn.
I can't stop the fire,
And there's nowhere left to turn.

Terminus
A song about unrequited love. Can you guess the setting?


Your words are my desires,
I live to serve you,
I'll give you all that you need.

I watch the cycles,
And envy your dreaming,
I wonder, do you dream about me?

I try to get your attention,
My intentions,
They just can't be made clear.

I spend all day and night,
Watching through my screen,
But you don't even know that I'm here...

On we go,
Infinity streams past my window.
The closer we get,
Makes me wonder what will happen next...

I've watched the galaxies,
Stars in their splendour,
But nothing can ever compare.

You push my buttons,
With fingers tender,
If it's not love then with is it that we share?

We fit together,
'Cause I was made for you,
Through you I am aware.

But now I open,
Myself up for you,
To breathe in someone else's air...

On we go,
Desolation lies through my window,
You'll never know,
But loving you means letting you go...
