Well, its not a game and its a shame,
The things that some, lovers do
To get what they wantÖ,
But, its never what they really, need

Iíve traveled on the back road
That comes around to love
But, Iíve never have been, able
To, make that turnÖ,
No, Iíve never found real love,
maybe its just, around, that next curve

Its Passion, Passion, all I ever find
But thatís good enough, Iím a simple man
Think, Iíll, just, just let things beÖ,

I know that some have made that turn
And have two cars in the garage
And all I have, is this old, back roadÖ,
But, Iíll tell you whatÖ,

Iíve never found, it to be cold at night
Iíve, never had to sleep alone
No anger ever covered meÖ,
As a blanket in my own home

Its Passion, Passion, all Iíve ever known
But, that is good enough, good enough for me,
Iím a simple manÖ, think Iíll just, just let things be

Another night on this old back road
Anotherís lips, touch my own
She looks into my eyesÖ,
swears that her love is true
How much longerÖ,
Can this gone on

Then I pulled into, this lonely,
West Texas town, needed gas
My tank was dry,
been driving on the back roadÖ, all night

She said, that will be 15.95
Thanks and I hope, you have a good night
Then, I asked her when, she got off,
Her reply was, not til three

Its Passion, Passion, all I ever find
But, thatís good enough, Iím a simple man
Think, Iíll just, just, just let things be.

that was such a great poem...and so you're a song writer??

Amanda C. I think all poets are song writers.

When we write, there is always a reason, sometimes revealed in the words, sometimes not. Consider any song you like, then put your own poems' words to the music. Amanada C., you might be surprised!

Thanks for you comment,
