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

 

30 Years

untitled

Where has the time gone?

The days of innocence past

Worries that once we thought would never pass

From our first day of kindergarten

To the day we went our separate ways

Days of classes, lectures and tests

Weekends of work, fun and play

Cruising in cars to the tunes of our time

The only care we had were what do we do next

Some off to college, some off to work

Some started families and others drifted apart

Thirty years have gone by since we left that life

Those days we spent in a High School daze

Now we have new lives

Families, careers and so much more

Friends who are no longer with us we remember with a smile

Hairlines recede and waistlines expand

Thinking back on days we wanted to pass by

Now we would give anything to find that innocence again

Friendships, relationships, parties and more

Friday night Football, weekends with friends

Tonight we will tell stories of times gone past

Catch up on each other’s lives

Saying how we should stay in touch

But in reality remembering how so much of these times really sucked.
