he woke at quarter to two not quite what he wanted to do but when a ghost still lurks in the room the mind searches for another clue there was a woman he knew wore scarlet red velvet and expensive perfume she caught his eye from across the hall and he knew that his life was no longer his own he showed her his many rooms books to the ceiling and cases of jewels in the garden they sat for a drink glasses clink and their secrets were few the onlookers knew their secrets were few that's what brings us to that night that night alone in his room all the ghosts were there on that fateful night when the butler was found dead and all his diamonds gone and the lady in red was never to be seen again was it a rope, a knife or a gun? heart and diamonds gone

looking out the window cat in your lap book is laying open but you're not looking at that you're gonna put your boxing gloves on no one's going to tell you what to do no one's going to tell you just what to do when your mind is on taxi-cabs and fermented food put your boxing gloves on no one's gonna tell you what to do eyes so blue and heart so true whatever will you do? eyes so blue and heart so true you're the one breaking the rules

Dirt Road 02:27
She has always lived on a dirt road through circumstance or through choice all her own you can see her there at the end of the drive looking at the sky and the northern lights there are apples in our orchard and the trees are ripe with fruit knowing me and knowing you our hearts and hands are full when the winter snows and the winds blow and it takes all morning to shovel out the dirt road knowing me and knowing you every season is full knowing me and knowing you we let our hearts rule knowing me and knowing you our hearts and hands are full

Rhythm is what i see in you and motion is what will see us through eyes are windows and we are peering in without hesitation we are opening man becomes woman woman becomes man fire and air fire and air water and sand a healing breath delicious strife the taste of honey and then the knife a healing breath delicious strife the taste of honey and then the knife but the honey affects the allergies and the skin erupts into flame and the only thing that remains consistent is the blood on the knife and the moon as it continues to wane wings and fins wind and life the taste of honey and then the knife wings and fins wind and life the taste of honey and then the knife

He's Got Your Back © Mary Bue 2018 Dallas St Louis How about Phoenix Baby, he's got your back You moved there You stayed there You lived there And now there's no going back Take off your sunglasses The darkest night gonna shine the brightest light Let's go to Vegas Gonna get married at a little white chapel there Let's go eat some fancy food get all dressed up cuz this one is so mad about you finally so good for you Take off your sunglasses the darkest night gonna shine the brightest light "The Finer Things in Life" She said, "I'm lucky to be his wife." And at the end of the day all we can say is that this love is larger than life

about

Kickstarted and Wide Hearted is a giant thank you note! In order to release my last album, "Apple in the Ocean," (August, 2012) I enlisted the help of Kickstarter - www.kickstarter.com - which is a funding platform for creative projects (you can see my project profile here: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1611270022/mary-bue-creates-her-45th-record-apple-in-the-ocea ). I raised money to record and release my album with the help of 104 generously supportive friends, fans and wonderful strangers from afar. Some of the rewards included house concerts, album pre-sales, baking apple pies and writing songs on a subject matter of choice. This release is the result of that song-writing adventure, and these 7 songs were written for 7 people to their loves, or to their whims. I was planning on recording these songs at home on my computer and just burning discs for the 7 recipients, BUT I had a little extra $$ left over from the fundraising so I thought, why not go back to Sacred Heart studio and record it nice??? Each song has a story - so click on each individual song to read the reason why. I am so thankful for the support, encouragement and challenge to write songs for these fine, fine people.

In 2018, I've added "He's Got Your Back" to this collection for Becky & Larry Nance :)
