LAMENT
Alan Kovin

My heart’s gone down from the thieves and lies
As I read all the bylines, reach for the sky
There’s an interview with Paris, bout the things she said
The ocean’s getting warmer and it’s gone to our head
An actor’s on the morning spread
We’re gonna have to change or we’re dead

A Senators’ commission has been on the news
Been defending all the leeches that got us so fooled
And no one has the guts to tell the stor-y bout the oil
Why thousands of our boys are shedding blood and getting boiled
Wonder why it got so hard
There’s got to be a changing of the guard

The old dreams are dying, but we keep trying, on the auto-line
And no ones revealing, all of the stealing inside
Is it a matter of losing grace
Or choosing the human race

We’re lost in our disguise
If we don’t realize
We cry for the earth
Harbor our own demise

It’s sad to think we could come so low
I love you so….I love you so, I love you so, people I love you so……

This is the rough draft of a tune to be in my upcoming musical revue, On The Road. This is just piano, vocal and drum loop, with solo humming . Would love to get ideas on arrangement. I categorize this tune as folk-pop-gospel

From the Heartland
Words and Music by Alan Kovin
Copyright 2003

Went down to the city just the other day
Asked a guy to help me find a way
And I didn’t know…that he was low
He was down cause the girl of his dreams was bout to go
I knew how he felt from the heartland of my soul

Looked around the corner seeing lines
People in their hurry passing by
And it just shows…it hurts me so
We live in a world alone, it makes me cry
And I lose my cool when I see the reason why

We can fight at night with the power of flags and freedom
By the light and the might that keeps our honor clean
But when it comes to some common sense in our own kingdom
Oh—Oh is our reason-ing leaving
And we don’t even make a scene

Well you might think….I’m on the left wing, or on the right wheel
Depends how I feel
But my main stand it’s for the Heartland
That’s where I’ll always be

Goodbye and hello people on the road
Those of us who’ve got to find a home
And I didn’t know..but I was told
There’s gold deep inside when your body’s strong and whole
It keeps me goin in the heartland of my soul

We can drive at night in our caddies in California
Slide through the night with the smog and the burning need
But when it comes to common sense for fueling freedom
Oh-oh is our reasoning leaving, we don’t even see the greed

Well you might think….I’m on the left wing, or on the right wheel
Depends how I feel
But my main stand it’s for the Heartland
That’s where I’ll always be
