Never posted here before, thought I would put these out there. I don't write poetry, I focus a lot on my music. But my lyrics all directly reflect on something in my life and are very personal. Some lines don't seem to read well, but that's because they may not be sang together in the song. Thanks for looking

Brothers and Sailors-

I write these words, so you would know
About all we worked for, just let it go
When I came along you sir you left me dry
Oh to be young again, we felt so alive
Now you go and drive, up to who knows where
You just left me here, you forgot, forgot how to share
But my beard grows full, and my hands don't look the same
Oh it's been some years, maybe I'm to blame.
We could have been like brothers,
Now all we are is sailors,
Sailing off, till the bitterness ends,
But we won't find that treasure.

You said you were new in town, I said please don't lie. You said what's the difference, but man you saved my life

One of these days we'll sit right here and stop to look behind, and ask how much it would cost a man to buy his wasted time.

We could have been like brothers,
Now all we are is sailors,
Sailing off, till the bitterness ends,
But we won't find that treasure.
