'Wanna Be Around'

Sometimes I think I'd be better off dead
Sometimes I think it's in my head
Just when it seems I got things right
I feel a hand on my shoulder in the middle of the night

You won't believe me if I speak the truth
'Bout a hard luck future and a misspent youth
People talkin' all the time
But they never say what's on their mind

I just wanna be around, when it all comes clear
I just want another chance to make a difference here

Don't go gettin' the wrong idea
'Bout the way it's lookin' and the road to fear
I can't take in the global news
I'm just walkin' in my own shoes

The picture fades on the price we pay
Hatred takin' our lives away
Guns n' war gonna hold us down
N' I'm still livin' in nowhere town

I just wanna be around, till it all comes clear
I just want another chance to make a difference here
Till the sun burns out, till the forest disappears
I just wanna be around
To feel the love that's here

Compassion For ALL Creatures
This Song makes me pause to evaluate why I am here. Paul expresses what I feel everyday. Somedays I don't really want be here, but I know I must try to live unselfishly, and as best I can, so I can be around to help others...thanx Paul for your heartfelt song!

The Gift
I found this song... on I believe another station... what now seems many moons ago... I absolutely fell in love with Paul's vocal, guitar, the lyrics... I just think it's a really great song. I had a difficult time deciding on just one from Maria's page so I'm adding this one just because I love it... and because I just adore Maria and all that she dedicates to what she believes in... will be adding another favorite with her vocal.

Rescue Me
"This soldier, I realized, must have had friends at home and in his regiment, yet he lay there deserted by all except his dog. I looked on, unmoved, at battles which decided the future of nations. Tearless, I had given orders which brought death to thousands. Yet here I was stirred, profoundly stirred, stirred to tears. And by what? By the grief of one dog." (Napoleon Bonaparte, on finding a dog beside the body of his dead master, licking his face and howling, on a moonlit field after a battle. Napoleon was haunted by this scene until his own death.)
