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!
