Lyrics

What Am I Gonna Do About You ?     lyrics and music ©2013 by Michael K. Myers

 

I know what to do with this guitar in my hand

I got a song that I can sing

Might be a rockin'  tune , I'll play it with the band

Or I can do a love song too, and do it on demand

 

But you, oh you

What am I gonna do about you?

If I knew

I would surely act

But I'm blue, so blue

The one thing on my mind

is losin'  you, ooh

What am I gonna do about you?

 

I am a leader, people need me to decide

They need an answer to a problem

I figure it out, here's the solution I provide

And that's just what I do, and when I do I'm satisfied

 

But you, oh you

 

(modulation)

I used to think that I could do most anything

Just put my mind to it, and conquer

No mountain high, no river wide would hinder me

Just do what I must do, cause what's the use in worrying

 

 

But you...

Story

From my (2014) CD album 'You Are Here'. As in the previous 'What Am I Gonna Do About You', all instruments recorded by me, in my home studio. It's so cool what modern technology allows an independent artist to do. You can record a presentable product, without having to go to a pro studio, and spend a whole lot of money, you might not have. I did use one of these studios to do the 'mastering', though. Concept Audio in Kingston.

Lyrics

There's Gonna Be A Heartache   lyrics and music (c)2011 by Michael Myers

 

I was walking on the shore

I saw a couple passing by

They didn't hold a hand

There was no smiling

The hands that covered her face

They were hiding tears I heard her cry

I just knew

So sad and blue

Somebody would be singing

 

There's gonna be a heartache

Thinkin'  about you baby

There's gonna be some cryin'

When you are gone

Seems like nothing I can say

Will change your mind baby

It's a lowdown shame 

If I can't hold you again       

 

I look back upon my life

And I see couples passing by

We were holding hands

And we were smiling

But those hands would always end up

Wiping tears that we would cry

It always was that way

And I learned this refrain

 

There's gonna be a heartache...

 

All our friends been through it

I know you been there too

But I don't wanna do it

I need to stay, with you today, how can I make my case

 

There's gonna be a heartache

Thinkin'  about you baby

There's gonna be some cryin'

When you are gone

Is there nothin' I can say

To make you stay baby

It's a no good shame

And It's a loser's game

If you won't ever love me the same

Lyrics

Undone              lyrics and music (c)2006 by michael k. myers

 

The saddest of words, goodbye

Everything hurts, you cry

Why does it have to be over?

How did it end up this way?

 

Was in the spring, a bluebird

I heard it sing, a new word

You spoke it soft on my shoulder

We fell in love that day....but

 

Undone, a knot that was tied became

Undone, a beautiful sight became

So wrong

It went out of focus

Life kind of broke us, now

Undone, that’s how my life’s become

No fun, spendin’ my days in the 

Setting sun

A long shadow’s found me

With a heartache that hounds me I’m

Undone

Story

from my 2003 CD 'Michael K. Myers'. Back in the mid to late 90's, I worked as a cab driver. There was a lot of down time, and I would write songs in my head, for the most part, and write down the lyrics. All done without an instrument at hand. When I got home I would translate them to a guitar. I wrote a few songs like this, and here is one of them.

Lyrics

Don’t Be Alone Anymore

 

Don’t be alone anymore

I’m here to keep you company

You say those close to you have let you down

I say now that you can count on me

 

Don’t be alone anymore

Let down your guard, you have no need

Come out from behind those walls that you have built

Princess let your weary heart go free

 

What heartless fates have imprisoned you

And hardened you

It was too cruel

Behind your beauty hides a tenderness

A warmth I sense

Beneath that cool

 

Don’t be alone anymore

Take a leap of faith it’s okay to laugh

Wake up turn your head around and see the world

Take my hand and greet a brand new day.

Story

    In 1992 this recording of mine won a spot on a compilation disc featuring Kingston, Ontario music acts called 'Foundation Of Rock'. The artwork for the disc was by Peter Quaife, who some might remember as the bass player for that great 60's British band 'The Kinks'. The song I think still has relevance today, considering the ongoing threats to our world's environment, and it's many species.

Lyrics

When The Whale’s Gone      lyrics and music(c)by michael k. myers

 

Well I raced all night and I tried to make it home            

But the rains came down,and chilled me to my bones                                     

I heard the news with the car radio on              

And the rains came down, I was feelin’ so alone

 

When the whale’s gone ,what you gonna do?

When the whale’s gone, where you gonna go?

When the whale’s gone,where you gonna hide?

Ain’t no place to hide           

 

Well the night cleared up,and a million stars appeared

I could see a light driftin' slowly ‘cross the sky

I closed my coat,and a million stars I feared

I could see a light driftin’ slowly ’cross the sky

 

When the whale’s gone ,what you gonna do?

When the whale’s gone, where you gonna go?

When the whale’s gone,where you gonna hide?

Ain’t no place to hide           

Ain’t no place at all 

 

'Gonna use my time, 'gonna plant some corn

'Gonna say my prayers, keep the children warm

I’m gonna use my time,gonna work in the mornin'        

‘Gonna work my fields,  ooh

 

Well I raced all night, and I tried to make it home            

But the rains came down,and chilled me to my bones                                     

I heard the news with the car radio on              

And the rains came down, I was feelin’ so alone

 

When the whale’s gone ,what you gonna do?

When the whale’s gone, where you gonna go?

When the whale’s gone,where you gonna hide?

Ain’t no place to hide
