About
I've been writing lyrics for almost five decades now. Had a few tentative starts to collaborations with some friends long ago, but life events always led us in different directions. Literally, their jobs would take them out of the city. out of the state, out of the country. One would think that I would have given it all up by now. However, the lyrics keep coming anyway, whether in part or complete. I hear or see or think of a phrase, and the lyrics come. I've probably lost or forgotten more partial songs than I remember or have written down. Every once in awhile, one of the old ones that I thought I had forgotten just pops back up. It seems most of the songs I sing in my head are my own, whether recent or from long ago. But the only musical instrument I ever played was drums/percussion, so the music is just trapped up there in my head. Someday, I would like to actually be able to hear it.

Lyrics

Everyone’s got someoneBut no one’s getting meEveryone does somethingBut no one’s doing meEveryone’s a winnerExcept I always loseEveryone got optionsBut I can’t even choose    Poor– poor poor me    I’m the nobody nobody sees,    The one nobody wants to be.

Parents on the boozeTelling me what I can and cannot doThey’re not the boss of meand someday I’ll make them seeSomeday they’ll finally seeThey’ll try to knock me down againBut I’ll be in the windI’ll be gone and they’ll be sad‘cause they’re the ones who tu

I don’t want to fight the old man’s warI don’t want to kill and die no moreI just want to live beforemy life is done.I don’t want to bring more miseryI don’t want to be part of historyI just want a little peacebefore there’s none.I don’t want to hear more

I thought the love I gave would make you change  But all the pain you gave remained the same  So many times I tried to get away I don't know what it was that made me stay. Now I'm sick and tired of acting like a fool I'm so damn tired of all this push and

The way you’re treating me     It’s a pity The way I’m treating you     It’s a pity The way we treat each other One stranger to another     It’s a downright dirty rotten shame. Once we were together     It was a pity But now we’re each alone     Such a pit

Why must we kill Why must we die Why must we hurt Why must we cry Why must we hide deep down inside our fears and our dreams Why must we why Why must we hate Why must we complain Why must we share all our anger and pain Why must we hide deep down inside ou

You’re not my inspirationYou’re not my fantasyWhile you might be my fan,You’re not the one I see.I hate to break your heartI’m so sorry, but it’s true.I don’t write my love songs for you.    I don’t write my love songs for you    I don’t write my love song
Ron Gray · 75 days ago

It’s all too much; you’ve gone too far.I don’t even know who you are.There’s no excuse for what you’ve done.Took all of my love and left me none.Oh oh oh it’s all too much.It’s all all all all too much.It’s all too much; I can’t take this.Losing your game
Ron Gray · 84 days ago

I am herebut you are there.It seems lifejust doesn’t care.I want to be the oneto hold you near.I can feelbut I can’t touch.I can seebut not that much.I wish this time and spacewould disappear.I’m here and there you areBut it seems so farfrom here to there.

I was sure I'd find my treasure    In this land of make-believe,But spotlights burn themselves out    And they shine so brief.        Fame’s great the time you're in it,        But it only lasts a minute            Now the spotlight's gone --            Ca
