maybe

Posted: 01/13/2012 in house of blues, house of change, house of love

maybe it dint happen

just the way that i said…

does that mean you have to treat me

like i don’t exist?

like i’m dead?

maybe i wasn’t everything

you hoped i would be at the start…

but does that mean you have to believe

that I have no tears

and have no heart?

baby, i have always loved you

and i never lied, i swear…

the truth is, all i want in the world

is to see you still standing there.

maybe i went wrong again

maybe i’ll never know how to be…

maybe you’ll walk away and never know or care

that you mean everything

to me.

for Marian’s music prompt (Tom Waits) at Real Toads.

“Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis” was written by Tom. Sung here by Maria Tecce.

    Yeah CB, you and Tom are channeling the same blues here. Maybe love is just that lonely feeling that you’ve struck out once again. Schwiiiing and a miss … (I know, I know, but I couldn’t resist the hetero howler.) – B

  2. Marian says:

    love the rhymes and i wanna hear you sing this.

  3. coal black knows how to sing the pain.

  4. Oh, I wish I’d written this. I know the feeling so well.
    “maybe i wasn’t everything
    you hoped i would be at the start…
    but does that mean you have to believe
    that I have no tears
    and have no heart?”

    Little Anthony and the Imperials couldn’t sing it any sweeter or sadder…tell it, tell it, coal.

  6. Coal Black knows pain like nobody else, and she can sure WRITE it!!!!!!

  9. Mary says:

    Beautiful. I think you have captured here the sadness that many women have felt / feel in their hearts.

  10. Kim Nelson says:

    Maybe I didn’t love you…
    Thinking you and Willie should do a mash-up.

  11. Mama Zen says:

    Sweet, Coal. Damn sweet.

    a lyric. a perfect fit for this prompt. and who better to sing it?

    this is the line –
    “the truth is, all i want in the world
    is to see you still standing there.”

    can’t wait for the tour – waits and coal black live at the whiskey!
