Because I like to finish what I start........ (Hope I got the names right--sorry if I didn't.)

THEY NEVER KNEW
©2005JKovak

THEY'VE ALWAYS BEEN THERE IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD
NO I NEVER WANTED FOR
MY TWO BROTHERS AND MY DAD
AND MY OWN INTERNAL WAR

IT HAPPENED ONE DAY WHEN THEY WEREN'T HOME
JUST HER THE STRANGER AND ME
SHE SAT ON THE TABLE HOLDING THE PHONE
WHILE I HID INSIDE THE PANTRY

NO THEY NEVER KNEW ABOUT THE DREAMS I HAD
THE REALITY THAT NEARLY DROVE ME MAD
THEY NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH THAT ONE MOMENT CHANGED ME
AND IT COULD BE THAT MAYBE
THEY NEVER KNEW ME

SHE CRIED, SHE YELLED FOR HIM TO LEAVE
AT FIRST SHE SEEMED SO STRONG
BUT EVEN FROM THERE INSIDE THE PANTRY
I COULD SEE WHEN IT ALL WENT WRONG

IT WAS SOMETHING HE SAID THAT I DIDN'T HEAR
OR JUST DIDN'T UNDERSTAND
JUST BEFORE HE LEFT HER THERE
IN A HAZE WITH A GUN IN HER HAND

NO THEY NEVER KNEW ABOUT THE DREAMS I HAD
THE REALITY THAT NEARLY DROVE ME MAD
THEY NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH THAT ONE MOMENT CHANGED ME
AND IT COULD BE THAT MAYBE
THEY NEVER KNEW ME

AND MY FATHER AND BROTHERS WERE ALWAYS THERE
FILLING MY LIFE WITH GREAT MEMORIES
THOUGH NONE COULD EVER QUITE ERASE THE ONE
I ACQUIRED INSIDE THE PANTRY

NO THEY NEVER KNEW ABOUT THE DREAMS I HAD
THE REALITY THAT NEARLY DROVE ME MAD
THEY NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH THAT ONE MOMENT CHANGED ME
AND IT COULD BE THAT MAYBE
THEY NEVER KNEW ME

OH IT COULD BE THAT MAYBE
THEY NEVER KNEW ME

GRACE
©2005JKovak

SHE CALLS TO ME IN
PLEADING BREATHS
TEASES ME WITH
HEAVING BREASTS
I'M MORE ALIVE THAN I'VE
EVER BEEN
AND THERE'S NO POSITION SHE
CAN'T GET IN

AND I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN
KEEP UP THIS PACE
FEELS LIKE I'M JUST
RUNNING IN PLACE
BUT IF THERE'S A SAVIOR FOR THIS
HUMAN RACE
IT'S GRACE
YEAH
IT'S GRACE

OH IT'S GRACE THAT HAS ME
HYPNOTIZED
SO COMPLETELY
PARALYZED
HER SPARKLING EYES SO
BEAUTIFUL
HER WANTON CRIES SO
DUTIFUL

HER CURVES COMPLETELY NATURAL ADORNED IN SATIN AND LACE
(2,3,4)
AND WHEN SHE SCREAMS IT'S A MATTER OF TIME
BEFORE I FALL FROM GRACE

SHE DRIVES ME WILD WITH HER
APPETITE
SHE'S A WILD CHILD WITH AN
OVERBITE
KISSES ME LIKE THERE'S
NO TOMORROW
RELIEVING ALL MY
PAIN AND SORROW

AND I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN
KEEP UP THIS PACE
FEELS LIKE I'M JUST
RUNNING IN PLACE
BUT IF THERE'S A SAVIOR FOR THIS
HUMAN RACE
IT'S GRACE
YEAH
IT'S GRACE

IT'S GRACE THAT HAS ME
HYPNOTIZED
SO COMPLETELY
PARALYZED
HER SPARKLING EYES SO
BEAUTIFUL
HER WANTON CRIES SO
DUTIFUL

HER CURVES COMPLETELY NATURAL ADORNED IN LEATHER AND LACE
(2,3)
OH AND WHEN SHE SCREAMS
IT'S A MATTER OF TIME
BEFORE I FALL FROM GRACE

YEAH WHEN SHE SCREAMS
IT'S A MATTER OF TIME
BEFORE I FALL FROM GRACE

Hi Joe,

THEY NEVER KNEW

Firstly I have to say that I do like this song; I think the imagery you've used is excellent. I can just imagine a small, frightened little boy looking out through the slats of the pantry door. But there's something about this that been getting at me and its taken me a little while to figure out what it is, but I've got it now. The first two choruses when you talk about “They” I think your referring to your mother and the killer at the time of the event , but the line THEY NEVER KNEW ME conjures up an image of some other understanding of you, prior to that, not something happening now that will affect you in the future. (I hope I'm explaining it ok). This isn't about them; this is about you, so id change chorus 1 & 2 to this:

NO THEY WOULD NEVER KNOW ABOUT THE DREAMS I WOULD HAVE
THE REALITY THAT WOULD NEARLY DRIVE ME MAD
THEY WOULD NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH THAT MOMENT CHANGED ME
AND IT COULD BE THAT MAYBE
NO ONE WOULD EVER KNOW ME

The last line a sort of a prophecy.

I'd leave chorus 3 along, cos that is about your father and brother, the prophecy complete.

You dun good boy :D .

GRACE
This is a fun song , a bit of relief after the first one. Well done. You haven't got her phone number by any chance have you? :wink:

Life is not about what I've done, what I should've done, what I could've done. Its about what I can do and what I will do.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too, can become great.

Thanks everyone.

Pbee, the "they" refers to "father and brothers" who didn't know until many years later. Hence, "my own internal war," and "the dreams" (repressed memories resurfacing) which were caused by the "reality that nearly drove me mad." But luckily Grace was there, lol. As for her number, maybe I'll write it on the wall and it'll become a hit song. Thanks again, guys.

Joe
