Lost Ways
Bob Stephens, 6/23/202


A7 E7
Can you answer all my questions?
A7 D7
Do you see into my soul?
A7 E7
Will you trust what you will find there?
D D7
Or will you lose control?

Can you see all things through my eyes?
Am I asking the right themes?
What is the right door or path way?
To what I'm meant to be?

Every little answer
leads to so much more
perhaps there is a new way
perhaps there nothing sure

Every little twinkle
a refreshing idea
Symbiotic stories
partnerships appeal

Hard words, strange thoughts, Lost Ways

Has it been too long a lifetime
and do I not remember
was it simply put together
or written out in splendor

Is there a another way I've taken
my change to December
Every little step I take
brings me closer to remember

Open me up and let it flow from memory
my mind is relaxed and spewing forth the words
My pen is too slow to keep up with the adjectives
My Heart beating rushed to fill out twothirds
then it's gone



Breath in and out
and in and out again
There it goes, passing on
Beyond all my thoughts
nothing remains I'm gone

Quick Dance
New Romance
Dating Again
Love Song
Poetry
I’m in Love Again

Fast Chance
Quick Glance
Fooling round a lot
Whoa Me
Whoopie
Let’s tie the knot

Chorus
Time and Time Again
Love goes round the bend
Up Down
Spin around
Love’s not what is seems

Wedding Chatter
Pick a pattern
Take a short Walk
White Dress
Tight Tux
Wedding Lock

Chorus

Honeymoon
Different tune
Short term bliss
Back home
No more fun
What did I miss?

Chorus

Bridge
Blink and you will miss it
It’s not what you think
Love’s not a feeling
It’s meaning what you say

New Chance
A different Dance
Finding your voice
Work hard
Find the time
Love is a Choice

Chorus

Love’s not what it seems

HE’S A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE
NO OTHER YOU WILL FIND
BUT NEVER WORRIES ABOUT HIS LIFE
HIS BODY GREW OUTSIDE
BUT THE CHILD NEVER DIED
YOU MIGHT SAY HE’S A LITTLE WILD

TO HIM LIFE’S A JOKE
DESERVES A LITTLE POKE
SOMETIMES WITH A RED HOT IRON
HE LAUGHS AT HIMSELF
AND ALWAYS SHARES THE WEALTH
HE’S A REALLY FUNNY GUY

CHORUS
BUT HE KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS
PICKS A PATH OF DARES
TAKING ON A HELL OF A LIFE
HE NEVER SEEMS TO CARE
THAT’S HE’S HEADED NOWHERE
SEARCHING FOR SOME THINNER ICE

A FAST PACED LIFE
HE NEVER WANTS A WIFE
A LEGEND IN HIS OWN MIND
HE BEARS DOWN THE ROAD
IN A MAZDA PAINTED BLACK
NEVER KNOWS WHAT HE WILL FIND.

CHORUS

(BRIDGE)
HE’S A HARD DRINKIN
WARP SPEEDIN
RACER ON THIN ICE
WHO RARELY LET’S THEM HIS TRACKS
BUT BRING IT BACK SAFE
TO THE START OF THE RACE
AND NEVER LET THEM SEE YOU CRACK

CHORUS

A GOOD FRIEND HE CAN BE
TO SOME AN ENEMY
HE MIGHT BE JUST A BIT TOO LOUD
HE’S A LOT TOO FREE
AND NOT A LOT LIKE ME
BUT HIS FRIENDSHIP REALLY MAKES ME PROUD.

CHORUS

Searchin' for Some Thinner Ice

Lonely is the midnight
Silence I can’t hear
Further from the daylight
Than the fear

Days keep on going
Till the weeks only memories
Still time is never ending
Some can see

Chorus
Breezes are just blowing
And the sky is still teasing me
And the sunshine is still raining
In my eyes

Daylight and there’s moonshine
Minding all you see
Scars on the Body
You can’t see

Raindrops on the rooftop
Snowing all by memory
And the fog sits in the window
Hide from me

Chorus

Bridge
Break the window
See the children
Time the moonlight
Hide the key
Taste the breeze

Hanging from the ceiling
Finding sight from smell
Higher than the seagull
A philosophy

Touching all the colors
Heartbreak from the fell
Seeming only frightening
More than me

Chorus

Chorus

In my eyes

AM D G EM
MEN FROM ALL WALKS – WONDERING
AM D G
WHO BARELY EVEN KNOW YOUR NAME
AM D G EM
TIRED OF TRYING ON OUR OWN
AM D G
MET ON A PROMISE FOR A DAY

YOU CALLED TO US THIS GROUP OF JUST MEN
YOU CALLED US TO BE YOUR FRIENDS
TOGETHER WILL STAND TO DEFEND OUR KING
BECAUSE WE ARE YOUR BAND OF GOOD MEN

CHORUS

AM D G
NOT GREAT BY ANY MEANS
AM D G
NOT EVEN KNOWN BY NAME
AM D
BUT MEN WHO ARE TRUE
G EM
TRYING TO SERVE YOU
C D7 G
AS YOUR BAND OF GOOD MEN

EARLY IN THE MORNING WE GATHER TO MEET
TOGETHER WE STUDY AND PRAY
AND EVEN WHEN WE FALL ON OUR OWN
TOGETHER WE CAN STAND AND SAY

CHORUS

YOU ARE OUR SAVIOR AND OUR KING
YOU ARE OUR FRIEND AND OUR GUIDE
YOU RULE THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH
AND YET YOU CHOOSE TO STAND BY OUR SIDE

BRIDGE:

AM D
TEACH TO US
AM D
PREACH TO US
AM D G
GIVING US YOUR GUIDING GRACE
AM D
HEAL OUR HEARTS
AM D
STRENGTEN OUR MINDS
AM D G
HELP US TO FINISH THE RACE

CHORUS

THERE ARE MANY US FAITHFUL MEN
WHO OWE OUR GOOD LIVES TO YOU
THERE ARE MANY MORE STILL TO COME
TO JOIN THE BAND OF GOOD MEN TOO

CHORUS - CHORUS

Band of Good Men

About Me

Bio

I've been writing lyrics since I was 8 playing around on the piano, guitar and steering wheel drum. My lyrics cover my moods and questions as I ponder life's challenges. A phrase or two is sometimes all it takes to build an opening, a chorus or even a full song. I'd love to sharing my lyrics and music ideas for collaboration or for sell.

CV/History

IT Consultant and Project Manager most of the time, Husband and Father all the time, and Part time lyricist, songwriter, photographer and gardener.
