She Says

[audio wav="http://mattralph.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/03-She-Says.wav"][/audio] words & music (c) matt ralph 2009 She cries if she don’t get her way, I treat her like porcelain clay, She sees it clearly in her head, She says that it’s just commonsense, You’re never as dull as you think you are, You’re never alone like you think you are, You’re never as free as you think you are, He cries if I don’t  walk this way, He forms animals out of clay,...

Out of the Darkness

[audio wav="http://mattralph.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/02-Out-Of-The-Darkness.wav"][/audio] words & music (c) matt ralph 2006 Come all you lost souls, Don’t be afraid, There’s more of us lost souls, Than there are days, We’ve all tasted it, We’ve all drunk that wine, Maybe it’s you now, Trying to find your way out, Out of the darkness, Been sleeping too long, I’m gonna wake to find, I can’t walk away, From what’s inside, Love’s a stranger to no one, Love is endless and whole, Love can climb any mountain, Love can bring you home, Out of the darkness, Can you relate...

Fool for Love

words/music (c) matt ralph 2002 Baby here I stand, With my back against the wall, Like a man, Without a reason, Like a man without a soul, I've got nothing that I can offer, I've got no money, Got nothing at all, What you see is what you're getting, There ain't nothing more to me, But are you a fool for love babe, Can you gamble on a dream, Can you risk your tomorrows, On me, Baby here I am, With my back against the ropes, And all my dreams were...

All I Wanted Was You

[audio mp3="http://mattralph.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/all-i-wanted-aug-2nd-2009.mp3"][/audio] words/music © 2000 I set out for something new, I packed my bags, Said I love you, But though I left you far behind, There was no use in me trying, Cause all I wanted was you, Time to set out on my own, Another place, Another home, But my feet they wouldn't move, Except to bring me back to you, Cause all I wanted was you, So tell me what am I supposed to do now, I've lost my chances with you, And all my struggles seem...
