Three Time Loser

Three Time Loser

I’m a two-time loser,
and I’m on the road.
My lovers have left,
and now I’m all alone.
I’m tired of traveling.
This life is getting old.
What I need is a wife,
and a place I’d call home.

But I can’t live those dreams.
Life’s not as simple as it seems.

I want to see the love
light shine from her eyes,
and have a place I can
rest my head at night.
I’d like a woman who would
rather kiss than fight.
She would love me, and
I would treat her right.

But I can’t live those dreams.
Life’s not as simple as it seems.

I’m a three-time loser,
and I’m still on the road.
My lover just left me,
and now I’m all alone.
I’m tired of traveling.
This life is getting old.
What I need is a wife,
and a place I’d call home.

Sand Castle Fantasy

Sand Castle Fantasy

One time is not enough with you,
not even two,
maybe three, four or five.
Perhaps the flame of love will be kept alive
long enough for the memories to survive
through the years. Maybe the sands
of time won’t be swept by the waves of reality
which constantly erode my sanity.

Love’s Only a Game

A poem by Brother Levi Jacobs

Love’s Only a Game

I’ll leave it all up to you.
I’ll do what you say.
You make the decision.
It’s better that way.
We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

I’ll leave it all up to you.
I would like you to stay.
I could forgive you.
We can start over today.

We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

I’ll leave it all up to you.
We were one of a kind.
Feelings have gone now,
You need to draw the line.

We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

A Woman Falling in Love

A Woman Falling in Love

There’s a quickness in her step.
She knows what she wants to do,
And where she wants to go.
When his name is mentioned,
You can see her face glow.
She is a woman falling in love.

There is a sudden smile,
A silent sparkle in her eyes,
Then a happy grin on her face.
There’s a certain look about her
As they meet at a certain place.
She is a woman falling in love.

She changes her style of clothes,
And does something new to her
Hair In anticipation of lovely gifts.
Mere presence and conversation
With man she loves gives her a lift.
She is a woman falling in love.

She lives for the moments that
Become her memories of the past,
And plans all part of the game.
If the affair should ever fall apart,
She’d be broken-hearted just the same.
She is a woman falling in love.

Let Me Be

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother C.J. Chatham III

Let Me Be

I’m not ready to fall in love
because I’m not strong anymore.
There is a part of me inside,
that’s missing and now is lost.
Old memories just can’t be replaced,
no matter what you think they cost.
When I want to be touched again.
I’ll call and let you in the door.

I can feel your love surround me,
but, honey, patience is the key.
You may win my love eventually,
but for now, honey, just let me be.

The Only One

Editor’s Note: LSC member Rev. Paul Abernathy rediscovers his rock and roll past with a classic love ballad.  I wish I had his music, or may he just wrote the words.  He didn’t say.  If you have any musical talents for these words, let us know!  Send an email to contact@eliastobias.net and put “The Only One Music” in the subject line.

The Only One

Music intro

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
This is no teenage crush.
I’ve known you ling enough.
Your smile gives me a rush.
This is no silly love song
About an affair that went wrong.
I want to hold you for a long, long time.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
It’s the way it has to be.
You are the only one for me.

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
This is no teenage crush.
I’ve known you ling enough.
Your smile gives me a rush.
This is no silly love song
About an affair that went wrong.
I want to hold you for a long, long time.
You’ll always be more than a friend of mine.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
I will do anything to make you see
You are the only one for me.

Instrumental bridge with guitar solo

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
I will do anything to make you see
You are the only one for me.

Lonesome Heart


Editor’s Note: Other authors may have poems or even book titles with this same title. but this version is from Elias Tobias.

Lonesome Heart

I know that you want me,
but you can only have half of my heart.
That is all I can give.
I know that you love me, but I
need the rest of heart so my soul can live.

I see the pain in your eyes,
and I have to look away.
My mouth starts to open,
but there’s nothing to say.
Things could’ve been different,
They don’t need to be this way.
The sun will rise again tomorrow,
and bring with it a brand new day.

I know that you want me,
but you can only have half of my heart.
That is all I can give.
I know that you love me, but I
need the rest of heart so my soul can live.

You are allowed to remember,
but it’s hard living in the past.
You try to start something new,
but it never seems to last.
You try to reach for the light,
but it is always hard to grasp.
The clouds you find in the sky
make the weather report overcast.

I know that you want me,
but you can only have half of my heart.
That is all I can give.
I know that you love me, but I
need the rest of heart so my soul can live.

Superstitions

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Superstitions

I remember when the old woman in black
translated the positions of the leaves of tea.
She said someone close cast a spell over me.
Since then things haven’t changed much,
even the way that I feel, and I wonder if
these magic superstitions can be real.
She was saying what I wanted to hear,
looking for signs of emotions I fear.
I’m waiting for the start of my bad luck,
while she has moved on, getting bucks from
those who want their future in their hands.
Steps made now determine where we stand.

Our Love Shared, Not Owned

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Our Love Shared, Not Owned

I can be your woman, you
could be my man, and
we both could be lovers,
but I could not own your love,
nor could you own mine.
The only owner of our
moments could be time,
who steals them for his
own personal scrapbook.
We share our loves,
like the millions of fish
who live and die in the sea;
like the workers of the land,
whose crops feed them when
they don’t own the deed;
like the varieties of trees that
are homes to insects and animals
and plants who help us breathe.
If you owned my love, and
I owned yours, we would
possess each other’s soul.
We would fight for control.
This is a conflict only God
and the Devil need to know.
I can be your woman, you
could be my man, and
we both could be lovers,
but I could not own your love,
nor could you own mine.

The Key

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

The Key

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door.”
Your love is the mystery,
and I’d like to know you more.
Your smile is that key
I have been searching for.

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door”
is a line Dickens once wrote.
The words are on the floor.
They gather into a note that
will make you want me more.

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door.”
It’s hard to wait for the day
until you’ll see a such a poor
woman like me let me say
the words you’ll adore.

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door.”
Until then I’ll just live
on smiles you show more
and more as you give
me hope I can’t ignore.

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door.”
Let cupid’s arrows pierce
your rusty metal armor,
and put your heart near
one who loves you forever.
