      PLENTY TO LOSE

      Tearful from what you concealed from me
      fearful of what you revealed to me
      I didn't know you love her,
      you didn't tell me
      now you put me in the role
      of wicked seducer of your soul,
      so why did you want me
      because she wanted him?
      it's a sordid web you spin
      and if you ever call me again

      I'll say I know that you have a lover
      you probably don't need another
      so I'll be takin' a little time to
      get you out of my mind
      now I know that you have a lover
      you probably don't need another
      so I'll be takin' a little time
      to get you off of my mind

      I was so open and so feeling then
      if you touched me I might smile
      or I might bruise
      I might laugh, I might cry
      who knows the reason why
      but I know I have plenty to lose

      yes I know I have plenty to lose
      yes I'm sure I have plenty to lose
      oh I fear I have plenty to lose

      because I know that you have a lover,
      so why should you need another
      and I'll be taking a lot of time
      not to fret or to pine

      --for acoustic guitar, folk song
      by Susy

        Well done sussy! now someone can make the folk melody

          herc:Well done sussy! now someone can make the folk melody

          herc I've noticed you are the king of misspelling people names on here you always either misspell, or arrantly capitolize the first letter. like my name is categorically written 'kapoo'. unless people want to do KPU, which I also will respond to

          anyway! enough about me and herc 'Sussy' love your lyrics! get yourself a tape recorder and sing it for us, would be great to hear the Susy pipes in full acoustic folk force! I totally have an idea for your lyrics btw, using a track I have. and just on first reading I think it would work! want me to take a stab at it sometime? except it will be more rocky than folky. is that an issue? excellent lyrics. :cool: do you play guitar? planning to post a rendition for us?

            my plan has been foiled! I forgot this clip is garbbled after the 1:39 mark.. bogus.

            but thats the track I had in mind for it maybe I could re-record it but I can't even remember what I was playing there.. could figure it out. we'd be rockin out that Plenty To Lose

              thanks so much, I have a melody for it. Wish y'all could hear it. Quite folky. That's cool you have a tune for it Kapoo I'll hear yours and get back to you, have to get back to work rite now.
              have written some others the end of last year and this year, will post them here when get time

                Well done Suzy!
                Really like the lyrics.

                  Yes, good lyrics Susy. Cool to hear you're writing songs! anyway thats cool then, I'll just stand by for your version. but know that I'm waiting in the wings (no pun) on it. you say the word and you just might wind up with a kapoo version of your song :cool:

                  and look at you there all busy working for the (wo)man hey, get back to work will you!

                    YEAAAAAAAAh Kapoo would love to hear your rockin' version!

                    audi did a rocker rendition of my folk rocky song "You Got More Sass and Class," was very exciting to hear such a different concept from my own tune for it

                      BLUE STREET

                      Feels like I live on Blue Street
                      in a tenuous haze, lost in
                      the silvery fog of rainy daze
                      on the nothing I can do street
                      once I made you out in
                      the shadows there,
                      all the time knowing there
                      was not a hope or prayer
                      missing you is bittersweet
                      and I am lost on Blue Street
                      I meant little to you
                      so you see I can't help
                      but be so blue
                      will I ever find my way out of Blue Street,
                      now that I know for sure
                      you're gone to stay
                      --Susy 2012
                      this song is a bit bluesy and jazzy

                        The Real Band
                        (for Linda)

                        Sometimes maybe she didn't feel
                        she was in the "real band"
                        that she just wasn't good enough
                        but she was, she was his love
                        he was her man
                        she was real tough
                        how could such be,
                        a loving force like they shared?
                        I always knew nobody cared
                        that much, always had to
                        live without that tender touch
                        look at her fantastic life,
                        how she got to be his wife
                        then had to leave so much behind
                        when she left here rather early
                        that it truly amazes your mind
                        I won't have nearly that much to lose,
                        but what I have means so
                        much to me
                        though it might not, to somebody else
                        I won't cry for myself when I leave
                        'cause I feel like a stranger to myself
                        --Susy

                        for Linda and for the Bronte sisters,
                        and Emily Dickinson

                          This is my "Positively 4th Street"--a bitter protest ditty--but minus the Bob Dylan brilliance--from some months back, in 2011--thankfully the fussin' and feudin' has let up considerably since then (whew! relief!)--

                          Free Floatin' Ill Will

                          free floatin' ill will
                          imparts quite a shudder, and a chill
                          who's it gonna land on next,
                          and why is it so hard
                          to give an' get respect
                          they don't even know me!
                          --and I don't really know them,
                          yet sporadic cutting malice
                          makes me wish to escape, to
                          my long gone lamented
                          pink palace
                          I've beseeched please get off your broomsticks
                          I know you think I'm just a
                          silly dumb hick
                          and to me you're a sneeze in the breeze
                          such mysteries
                          I want this free floatin' ill will to cease
                          have you never heard of sisterhood
                          and its power to do good works,
                          let's please stop bein' such jerks
                          our free floatin' ill will when
                          it settles is quite a bitter pill--
                          where is some warmth to
                          ease our shared chill?
                          have they not heard of sisterhood
                          and its powers to do good,
                          I wish it would vanquish
                          all this free floatin' fast growin'
                          too often emoting ill will
                          --S. (for acoustic guitar, folky)

                            Beyond the Pale

                            drifting
                            beyond the pale
                            fallen down
                            so low
                            the raven,
                            not a nightingale
                            going where the
                            wild things go
                            knowing
                            what the wild things know
                            once an innocent child,
                            lively, sweet, fun,
                            yet timid and mild
                            trying to be
                            nice and kind
                            trying to get her back
                            but I've drifted
                            beyond the pale,
                            fallen down so low
                            a raven
                            not a nightingale
                            knowing what the wild things know
                            going
                            where the wild things go
                            my heart was an open book,
                            I don't want them to take a look
                            laughing at
                            what all they took
                            can't be sure again
                            or pure again,
                            cause of drifting
                            beyond the pale
                            --Susy "punk folk" song intense and slow inspired by Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music and by Marianne Faithfull punk rock downer music of the 80's and by "Crazy Heart" movie and music with Jeff Bridges
                            sung in an emotional sad mournful way,
                            bryan ferry wails softly in the background as
                            beatnik bongos keep a slow hypnotic beat,
                            its title is a cliche
                            some lines are too

                              Really good lyrics Susy, I like Free Floatin Ill Will and Beyond the Pale! good poetry and you do some cool rhyme things in Free Floatin' :cool: nice

                                there's a song here for Linda McCartney
