BIG EMPTY ROOM

Posted on Monday, June 22, 2009 in Lyrics, Uncategorized

Its rare that one of my own songs runs thru my head….usually my mind dwells on campy 70′s music or mid to late eighties femmy new wave emo (morrissey,boy george spandau,human league etc..) or the gals and the folkies (,pretenders,eurythmics,) and once in a while the classics (beatles,stones,bowie,lou,moodys,p.floyd et al) but today for some reason my own damn song was running thru my head…so I played some mix tapes of social distortion,patsy cline,dream syndicate,Sinead,Prokeiov,t.Monk,mancini,mott the hoople,tracy chapman and even george jones , as I painted….My mix tapes TRULY are MIX  tapes..anyhuzen…nothing seemed to work…perhaps this will exorcize it from my Psyche…the song is BIG EMPTY ROOM off of 1999 CD “LOVER,LEGEND,LIAR..availible thru CDBABY or Itunes by clicking up in the corner of this page ..there..you see the link…

When I came home…to an empty town..

there was icy stares and glares,..yeah all around mejunkie8

I saw strangers,who used to be friends

is this the beginning…of the endgame?

since you found me

and you crowned me

king of the losers..beyond the boundary

yeah you found me..

you unwound me..junkie61

now Im going to the big empty room upstairs

waiting in that empty room upstairs..

I cant come down..

I cant see straight..

well Ive been this way too long

well you see..

I cant turn my back..

I cant look away..

andl Im not as strong as I should be..faceb1

since you found me ..

and you crowned me..

king of the losers..beyond the boundaryjunkie10

you drowned me

and unwound me

now Im going to the big empty room upstairs

I’ll be waiting in the big empty room upstairs

Im gonna see you in that empty room upstairs….

 

BIG EMPTY ROOM….RRW1998….its under 2 minutes long and features a smoking guitar solo by longtime cohort JIMI HASKETT…and theres even some melancholy whistling at the end..its kind of ode to anyone who has had to accept that thier soulmate ..is gone..a shell.. and is now the soulmate of the manic secretive world of addiction…and you’ll never really know them as they were again..and so you start to let go long before their gone…….its been a decade and I still think of her daily

my last feeling

Posted on Saturday, February 7, 2009 in Lyrics

 

MY LAST FEELINGa-xsvet

Everyone knows..how I long to be your lover..

everyone knows,..but you..dear..

and  I cant seem to say, what Im constantly thinking..

so Im drinking away..my last feeling..

so long as the skys blue one in awhile…I will never get tired of your smile

without it my lifes a great big pile of nothingaf

and when a jetliner flies overhead..and your desk feels like a deathbed..

well remember I said lets quit our jobs and go traveling

and everyone says ..we”d be..so good together

but its not just me ..that finds you appealing..

 has it ever crossed your mind,in your romantic downtimes, when your between boyfriends and youre reeling?

so long as the skies blue once in awhile..I will never get tired of your smile

without it  my lifes like a great big pile of nothing..

and when a jetliner flies overhead, and your desk feels like a deathbed…remember I said lets quit our jobs and go travelling..

now everyone knows.. how I long to be your lover..a-spank

everyone sees what Im concealing..

but if I reveal myself..well..I just might not recover..

so Im drinking away MY LAST FEELING….

so long as the skies blue once in awhile..

so long as the skies blue once in a while..

so long as the sky..is blue…so long as the sky..is blue

I will hide..inside..my last feeling…my last feeling…a-e2

i will hide..my last feeling…

my last feeling..

VALIUM..Original version of DANDY WARHOL’S new recording VALERIE-YUM

Posted on Friday, February 6, 2009 in Lyrics

the DANDY WARHOLS recently recorded a very psychedelic version of this song on thier album “EARTH TO THE DANDY WARHOLS” and its especially cool coz if you listen to the breakdown in the middle …you can hear them mention my name several times in the psychedelic psychobabble… getting a nod, a homage, and royalties to boot was one of the high points of 2008..and has spurred renewed interest in my life and music…here are the original lyric plus the FUNK/RAP breakdown that had all the kids dancing back in the 80′s..enjoy…and visit the ROZZ REZABEK MYSPACE page to hear my version…which of course like all my music…is availible on http://www.cdbaby.com or I-tunes…

the perfect words

Posted on Friday, February 6, 2009 in Lyrics

THE PERFECT WORDSamz9

The perfect words,they never come

if there are really miracles..I need one.

Im all heart and no brains..played out a desperate game

cant explain myself but I will die trying

The perfect words ..and simple times

a bed full of laughter and it was all mine

and we dont have to be friends,..but maybe we could talk again ..come up with an ending as good as our love began

the perfect words..a magic wand

to wave around us and poof… girl ,.. the world is gone..bc-unpublished1

Im all heart and no brains, played all the desolate games

cant explain myself but I will die trying

the perfect words you know they never come

and saying good byes rarely ever fun

yeah the perfect words,you know they never come

whats done is done is done is done is done

turn on the heat,..draw myself a bath

revise and rewrite our epitath

with the perfect words
