it's been a while since I've shared. These are separate ideas noted by triple dashes ///.
Still lurking, folks, so mind your grammar.

Then you were there to save me
I never knew I was drowning
Somehow you still kept me afloat

I forgive you for your kindness
How could you have ever known
That it would sear me to my very soul?

Or maybe I saved you, too
Or maybe the flood's not over
Could still be too late for us both


Somewhere along the line
I forgot that I know how to dance
And that I know all the words
To all of your favorite songs


Something tells me I need to go
To Alberta street
There's something there or someone
That I need to meet

Even though it's way out there
in deep northeast
Something tells me I need to go
To Alberta street

Good to keep hold of these fragments and revisit them. Sometimes they need to gestate for a while.

Personally, I like the middle one. That speaks to me the most.

Hi Gregg. The second idea could be the bridge for the third idea. Nice so far. Keep at it!


All songs are from God. Those that are not, aren’t songs at all.
