My Advice.

Unpublished Works, © 1997, BillyPauleyJr.*

My Advice.

O’, you say I help you feel good,
‘Cos your ways are so misunderstood,
O’, you heed every word that I say,
And you need, o’, you need me to stay,

But my advice is not to take it from me,
‘Cos my life is no living dream,
And who am I telling you what is best,
When my life is a total mess,
O’, my advice can’t you see,
Is not to take advice from me,

Still you rave on and on,
O’, you say I can do no wrong,
But I know how wrong I have been,
And I don’t want to be wrong again,

So my advice is not to take it from me,
‘Cos my life is no living dream,
And who am I telling you what is best,
When my life is a total mess,
O’, my advice can’t you see,
Is not to take advice from me,

O’, you say you want my advice,
Yesterday it made you feel nice,
But I fear in the back of my mind,
Would your tears get mixed up with mine,

O’, my advice is not to take it from me,
‘Cos my life is no living dream,
And who am I telling you what is best,
When my life is a total mess,
O’, my advice can’t you see,
Is not to take advice from me,
Yeah, my advice can’t you see,
Is not to take advice from me.

  1. So, I'm hoping you keep lots of notes about what inspired each song. The people, the event, the feelings...etc! Wow! I missed "hearing" this one. I can remember the tears...I almost drowned in them...but, you saved me. Thanks for that!
    Miss your thoughts,
    Trish

  3. That's a nice tho't for my books Trish*... thank you. I often get caught up in the emotions of what the song "is"... but rarely feel it could interest others. it's a tho't...

    That was a truly emotional, spiritual time for you & me too. And as one of my life muses... you were strong and true to me then.

    B3*... as always! Thanx for the good words. Every good word helps! (some bad words help too, but may be deleted by the censors) :p

    Thank you! Thank you! Love you all!
