“HOW” Lyrics for Lovers and Those Who Are Done

Hello Friends,

Here are lyrics to a new song I’ll post to Youtube within the coming weeks. If the words resonate with you then embrace them. You’re not alone.

X,
L

HOW

How do I say I’m sorry
When I’m not sure I’m wrong
How do I fix broken glass
With shards that are gone.

How do I relapse into a love
That has been drunk dry
How do I care about a story
When a sigh become a lie.

How is it here, we became this
Broken in two, no longer fit
How many times did we try to make it right?
Not enough, not enough
’cause we’re here.

How the hell does ambition
Turn to regret
And trust to lust
For another to get.

How does intention
Become a memory
And purity to anger
It’s all I see.

Quotes, Thoughts, and Notes

Below are things I’ve said, wrote or sang. A few may be from my memoir. Query me if you desperately(!) need to know which ones. And yes, this is a picture I took. We should all at some point drink wine in a tin coffee cup while watching a tremendous sunset – February 2017. Malibu.

I’m providing these quotes below because sometimes shared words help others. 

Feel free to share if they interest you. Especially the last one considering today:

“It’s the way you look at me, piercing love astray.”

“How do I say I’m sorry when I’m not sure I’m wrong.”

“I feel your touch, I hear your sigh and you’re not even here.”

“But, he is the alpha, I know she will not debate him. At least not in front of me. But I’ll take him on. One last time.”

“Make sure you’re not running from something that leads you to nothing.”

“I hate to knock anything, although it’s such a bore.”

“There’s never been a question of my faith, it runs deep when I see you.”

“Most of the time I would listen to music, practice music, escape into music.”

“I never thought I’d struggle to say such tempting words.”

“I’ve got to believe in something to get me through this, some glorious forgiving fate that’s unexpectedly true.”

When I’m Not Writing, I’m Singing, and I’m Doing It in Front of People This Sunday!

When I’m not writing, or blogging, or talking, or thinking, or bs’n…I’m singing.  And I’m singing this Sunday, April 23, 7:30pm at Bar Lubitsch. You can buy advance tickets here (suggested):

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/laurie-markvart-unplugged-tickets-33743184774

Until then…here’s a taste of the lyrics from the song GIVE ME ALL that will start the show. The song can also be purchased on iTunes if you want to get a listen before Sunday.

Hope to see you there. Cheers!

Always close to nothing
But closer than before
I hate to knock anything
Although it’s such a bore

To forgo any love
To trade for some luck
Hoping for tomorrow
I will not be so stuck
Trivial little happiness
At my finger tips

“Should I Stay” – Lyrical Poem for the Day

Today, I’m sharing poetic lyrics of memory. Not sure when I’ll set the music but when that flows, I will.  If it doesn’t, then it’s just a poem.

My muse-in the past. Gone. But I still look for her. The needs of a daughter do not disappear with the departed. Nor do the issues of why she drove me crazy or why I loved her so much.

Today, poetic lyrics. Getting it out, letting it flow and being in THIS moment. Someday, acceptance. Just not today. And that is okay ’cause I can’t go back, and I certainly can’t jump forward. And sorry to say, this applies to all of us. Unless you have a time machine. And if you do, DM me. I’d love to hear about it. xo

#bepresent, #beintheflow, #beinthemoment

Should I stay
 Should I walk away
 Does it pay to know how you feel

Should I stay
 Should I lie down next to you
 Cry for a while

Memories, you and me
 Blanket my mind
 Tell me I should run, hide

But I look at you
 And I see what you do
 And I know for now, I’ll stay

Should I stay
 Give us another day
 I can’t breathe for you

Should I stay
 Give it more time to play
 In my head, broken, astray 
 But today, I’ll stay
