Awright, enough of this macho BS!

I promised Amos some poetry. Here is a song I wrote today:

The Best Way That I Can                                Key of Bb (G, capo 2)

I'm playing out this role
The best way that I can
Thunder in my head
Lightning in my hands
A fire in my heart
Burning down this road
And if you need a hand
I'll help you bear the load

I came here out of nowhere
A place no one can see
And I'll return there someday
Back to eternity
Where Angels cross the sky
Where life's an endless chain
That can't be bought or broken
That bears no mortal stain

I see an eastern moon
Rise above the trees
And from the west horizon
I feel the gentle breeze
That moves across this land
Sings in a million songs
And sheds the light of truth
On every right and wrong

I've known the love of friends
Those who have proven true
The healing touch of love
That I've received from you
And I will not go down
Until my work is done
And I will sing my songs
Until that crossing comes

And I will sing again
Upon a golden shore
And I'll embrace my friends
Those who have gone before
And I will kiss each lover
Each one who gave her hand
And shared one hour of joy
Here upon this ancient land

These lives we have moved through
We've been like spirits passing
Like beams and shadows falling
On fields of everlasting
Like birds that fly at dawn
We rest when sunset comes
And shine like stars in darkness
Brave as a million suns

I'm playing out this role
The best way that I can
Thunder in my head
Lightning in my hands
A fire in my heart
Burning down this road
And if you need a hand
I'll help you bear the load
