Playing on the radio

Pin It
Summer’s here and I’m drivin’ this road
Leaving the past behind me
I’m seeing all of these new horizons
The things I’ve been too blind to see (because I’m)

A lover in love
A child’s heart that’s broken
A person lost and not found
So I’m…

Turning the dials, scanning the stations
And I’m searching high and low
I’m trying to find, hoping to hear
This song, that song, my song
Playing on the radio

I step on the gas and the miles fall away
They drop away like autumn’s leaves
I’m leaving behind my yesterday self
My new life I’m trying hard to seize

And with the change and these new roads
Always seems to come a time I’m lost
But I’m done with the map, away with the charts,
I’ll follow on the wind and yet not be tossed

Won’t somebody help me please (because I’m)
A lover in love
A child’s heart that’s broken
A person lost and not found
So I’m…

Turning the dials, scanning the stations
And I’m searching high and low
I’m trying to find, hoping to hear
This song, that song, my song
Playing on the radio

A ship to be safe needs a harbor
A soul to find rest it needs peace
A ship to be moored needs an anchor
And a soul it requires release

So I turn up the sound and let it all go
I let the wind it all carry away
I live my life, I live each moment
Not just for tomorrow but for today

And I’m
A lover in love
A child’s heart that’s broken
A person lost and not found
So I’m…

Turning the dials, scanning the stations
And I’m searching high and low
I’m trying to find, hoping to hear
This song, that song, my song
Playing on the radio

No tune other than that which plays incessantly in my head.
This, my friends, is a hit.

By the way, the photo was by somebody else...

Wow.

double wow.

not only can you sell your chunk-a-poo recipe for millions, you might also want to talk to John Mayer or Nickel Creek to have them buy the rights to this.

Do your talents have no end? Pretty darn amazing!

"A lover in love
A child’s heart that’s broken
A person lost and not found" So well put- I (and many others I'm sure) can relate to all of those feelings.
How long did it take for you to come up with this? Do you have a tune for it too?

That is nifty.

Gerb - Thanks.

LoS - I did email the song lyrics to John Mayer's agent after I read your comment. I don't expect a response, however, I did send it.

Cari - Yes, they do end.

Nettle - I wrote it while driving. I pulled over and scribbled it down on an old envelope. The tune is in my head...could I write it down? Probably not...could I sing it? Not really well, probably because my voice sounds so much better in my head. It's amazing just how many of those high notes I can hit while doing it silently.

KJ - Thanks. It was good to see you the other day too!

Shosh - Thanks for stopping by. Glad to hear you're still alive too.
