Love Ballads

Listening to sappy love songs on the radio
Songs showing how love could grow
From being there for you from Bon Jovi
How I remember you from Skid Row
When you don’t know what you got til it’s gone from Cinderella
Being in Heaven on a Warrant
We would fly to the angels with Slaughter
Remembering how when I see you smile in Bad English
Then we would want to know what love is belted out by a Foreigner
Thinking of home sweet home with those bad boys Motley Crue
Because love bites by that Def Leppard
How we can’t fight this feeling on the road with REO Speedwagon
Wanting to know is this love slithered out by Whitesnake
Cause every rose has its thorn dripping with Poison
Finally there is no one like you stinging us by the Scorpions
So much love on the radio’s back then as we use to cruise the streets
Arm around our girl with love pouring out of in those power ballads
How I miss those times, but those songs will always ride with us
We could never get taking high enough in love with those Damn Yankees


Inspired by listening to those great Power Ballads of the 80s

 

Keeper of Her Heart (Love So True Version)

I was blessed to find a love so rare
She was an answer to all my prayers
Above all others she’s the one
Unfortunately, my actions almost made it come undone
An angel from heaven was she
Our love was always meant to be
So, entrusted from God from the start
I was to always be the keeper of her heart

Keeper of Her Heart

Once upon a time
He was the keeper of her heart
Held tightly at the start
Eventually that heart did stray
And now it has gone away
Taking it for granted was his crime
Now alone he will spend his time
For he is no longer the keeper of her heart
And now they are apart

Five Finger Death Punch – “Wash it All Away”

Lyrics;

I’ve given up
On society
Up on my family
Up on your social disease

I’ve given up
On the industry
Up on democracy
Done with all your hypocrisy

All of the chaos
And all of the lies
I hate it

I’m wasting here
Can anyone wash it all away
I’m waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away

I’ve given up
On the media
Feeds my hysteria
Sick of living down on my knees
I’ve given up
On morality
Feeds my brutality
Fuck what you think about me

All of the chaos
And all of the lies
I hate it

I’m wasting here
Can anyone wash it all away
I’m waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away

I won’t change for you
And I can’t take the pain
There’s nothing you can do
And there’s nothing you can say

I’ve given up
On everything
Up on everything
Up on everything

I’m wasting here
Can anyone wash it all away
I’m waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away

I’m wasting here
With everyone just wash it all away
I’m waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away
Wash it all away

Decree of the Heart

The dream of a moment with you
Drives me each and every day
Next to you is where I feel whole
My love for you I extol
To touch your skin
Will always draw me in
To see your radiant smile
I would walk a thousand miles
You are all I will ever need
Wanting you my heart has decreed
I love you with all heart
Will never keep us apart


Picture is my own….Me and the love of my life.

Time

Time slips by slowly
Never going as fast as we wish
Or slowly when we need it to
Time together is to short
Time apart drags on and on
Slowly the seconds tick by
Making the minutes move on
With the hours passing into the past
The days mixing into each other
With the months feeling like eternity
Until that day I come home
Into your loving arms
Where I will pass the rest of my time
Until my time runs out
But I will make every second of it count
Because with you is where I belong always

Five Finger Death Punch – “Bad Company”

I spent 2 tours in Iraq from 2010 – 2011 and 2017 -2018.  I unfortunately didn’t get to see them when they were over there. Worked 12 – 15 hour days 7 days a week on average. Some where much longer. I think the hardest part is coming back home sometimes. I want to have a special shout out to all my brother’s and sisters who have held that line and for those who never came home and those still fighting.  God Bless  you all…

 

Safety Suit – “Anywhere But Here”

Is this the end of the moment
Or just a beautiful unfolding
Of a love that will never be
Or maybe be
Everything that I never thought could happen
Or ever come to pass and I wonder
If maybe, maybe I could be all you ever dreamed

Cause you are
Beautiful inside
So lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you

You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you

Is this a natural feeling
Or is it just me bleeding
All my thoughts and dreams in hope
That you will be with me or
Is this a moment to remember
Or just a cold day in December
I wonder
If maybe, maybe I could be all
you ever dreamed

Cause you are
Beautiful inside

so lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you
You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you

Is this the end of the moment
Or just a beautiful unfolding
Of a love that will never be
For you and me

Cause you are
You’re beautiful inside,
you’re so lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you
You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you


For my lovely wife who I miss dearly https://herwritinghaven.com/

Bad English – “When I See You Smile”

Sometimes I wonder
How I’d ever make it through
Through this world without having you
I just wouldn’t have a clue
‘Cause sometimes it seems
Like this world’s closing in on me
And there’s no way of breaking free
And then I see you reach for me
Sometimes I wanna give up
I wanna give in
I wanna quit the fight
And then I see you, baby
And everything’s alright
Everything’s alright
When I see you smile
I can face the world, oh oh
You know I can do anything
When I see you smile
I see a ray of light, oh oh
I see it shining right through the rain
When I see you smile
Baby, when I see you smile at me, oh yeah
Baby, there’s nothing in this world
That could ever do
What a touch of your hand can do
It’s like nothing that I ever knew
And when the rain is falling, I don’t feel it
‘Cause you’re here with me now
And one look at you, baby
Is all I’ll ever need, is all I’ll ever need
When I see you smile
I can face the world, oh oh
You know I can do anything
When I see you smile
I see a ray of light, oh oh
I see it shining right through the rain
When I see you smile, baby
Baby, when I see you smile at me
Sometimes I wanna give up
I wanna give in
I wanna quit the fight
Then one look at you, baby
And everything’s alright
Everything’s alright, so right
When I see you smile
I can face the world, oh oh
You know I can do anything, yeah
When I see you smile
I see a ray of light, oh oh
I see it shining right through the rain, yeah
When I see you smile
Yeah, I can face the world, oh oh
You know I can do anything
When I see you smile, oh yeah
Baby, when I see you smile
Smile at me


Heard this song today and immediately thought of the woman with the most beautiful smile, the one that warms my heart and with whom my life is complete.  https://herwritinghaven.com/
