Shoulda - Jamie Woon



Walked when I shoulda run
Ran when I shoulda walked
And don't I know
And don't I know

You get inside me
even when you ain't beside me
And I go into hiding
And I know I never leave it alone

'Nother round of if onlys
Of all the ways you could know me
How I'd take time going slowly
Over time that I did on my own

Still, I walked when I shoulda run
And I walked when I shoulda walked
And don't I know
Well, I walked when I shoulda run
And I walked when I shoulda walked
And don't I know

And your heads in the ocean
Too deep to know where you're going
Hoping time can be frozen
And you'll end up where you really belong

But the days keep on rolling
Reliving different moments
And the hurt is unfolding
Every day that we do and we don't

Still, I walked when I shoulda run
And I ran when I shoulda walked
And don't I know
Well, I walked when I shoulda run
And I ran when I shoulda walked
And don't I know

Sign for what's been
Sign for what'll never bee

A line under what's been
Align for what what'll never be

When the tears are collected
I pray that we are regretless
You and I the connected
You and I in the blood and the bone

A Cat's Prayer





 
Now I lay me down to sleep,
The king-size bed is soft and deep...
I sleep right in the center groove
My human can hardly move!


I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and "I want food!"


I sneak up slowly to begin
My nibbles on my human's chin.
She wakes up quickly, I have sharp teeth -
And my claws I will unsheath


For the morning's here and it's time to play
I always seem to get my way.
So thank you Lord for giving me
This human person that I see.

The one who hugs me and holds me tight
And sacrifices her bed at night (
