As you might have suspected, a phone call from an ex inspired this one.


Gonna get off the wheel. Don’t want to let myself feel
These tired old emotions again.

Running around in circles in my head again.
All it took was a phone call from you.
Then I find my serenity slipping away from me.
It’s time to try something different. Find something new.
Head out my door, find something better to do.
Find me a lover or maybe just a friend to help me
get off the wheel so I won’t have to feel
these tired old emotions again.

Someday I’ll look back at this and smile
even now the weight is much less than before.
And maybe, just maybe I’ll open my eyes and realize
That it doesn’t have to be this way anymore.

When that day arrives I’ll fling open doors and windows
and let fresh air and light come streaming in.
And go outside running wild Like when I was a child.
This is not a new beginning. Just a fresh start.
I look down inside, still see those scars on my heart.
But I won’t feel the pain and
I won’t lose my way. And I won’t
Get on the wheel. I won’t let myself feel
these tired old emotions again.

I have been playing guitar and singing for nearly fifty years now. I Started with American Folk and Blues tunes and finger- style guitar. Had a run in with a Classic Rock band for 6 years or so and I sure was glad when that ended. I spent 15 years playing in nursing homes doing standards from the 30’s and 40’s. Now I mostly write. You will see a bit of all the above in my songs. I hope you like. ... more
