An Old Story Told

(1992)By Alx Krys

(Marilyn’s Song)

 

The stillness of this photograph

still vibrated my soul.

It excited me erotically,

then I knew it was an old story told.

 

Oh, pearl skinned celluloid goddess,

whose films dazzled men’s hearts,

here you are a twinkling star

dressed in your golden satin.

 

Playing Marlayna Dietrich

in your silver tight and white gown,

sparkling as the platinum Harlow,

as all the other starlets frowned.

 

You were the poster every soldier,

the fantasy of every man.

Never uncovering your modest features

 for the likes of men in limousines.

(

CHORUS)

(trio Gregorian-Split Complimentary Harmony {sung without pointing out the melody})

 

Oh, bury me in young Marilyn

Bury me in your heart

Bury me in those sultry eyes

and let my heart drift afar....

(harmony oohs and ahhs verse)

Y

ou were the poster every soldier

the fantasy of every man

never uncovering your modest features

 for the likes of men in limousines.

 

(trio Gregorian-Split Complimentary Harmony ( sung without pointing out the melody})

 

Oh, bury me in young Marilyn

Bury me in your heart

Bury me in those sultry eye

And let my heart drift afar

 

Playing Marlena Dietrich

in your silver tight and white gown,

sparkling as the platinum Harlow,

as all the other starlets frowned.

 

Oh, bury me in young Marilyn

Bury me in your heart

Bury me in those sultry eye

And let my heart drift afar

(“FADE”)

HOMEWARD (1985)
HOMEWARD (1985)

By Alx Krys
Sailing away, from a distant harbor
Monterey left far behind.
San Francisco the heart of Bonnie Doon
Oh, Sacramento rivers run
And I’m just a seafaring man
with a plan to save the world,
but I only have this boat in which the sail,
my carefree cargoed bails
safely homeward
safely homeward
safely homeward
There are no gales today
my seams are taught in place
these sunny days from here on
point Lucretia, vintage sweet and light
and lovely Lolita and dinners by candlelight
And I’m just a seafaring man
with a plan to save the world,
but I only have this boat in which the sail,
my carefree cargo bails
safely homeward
safely homeward
safely homeward 
Sailing away, from a distant harbor
Monterey left far behind.
point Lucretia, vintage sweet and light
and lovely Lolita and dinners by candlelight
(REPEAT CHORUS)

A Long Time (1995)

by Alx Krys

it’s going to be a long time…

It’s going to be a long time…

It’s going to be a long time…

It’s going to be a long time…From Now!

 

Walking out on the street

every people that we meet

pass us by with a smile

every day.

We were brought up on dreams.

Learned to hope men to scheme

in these streets, these streets

of our survival.

 

It’s a dream window-shopping at night.

And the pleasure of the warm moonlit night.

But when the chill is in our bones,

we don’t want to, no we don’t want to…

call this home. Now Way!

 

Looking through the trash

We’re just trying to find some cash

Without work we have to roam.

Can’t find a job without a home.

We try to hide, disappear.

Don’t look ashamed when we stare.

We’d like to go and get away.

But were trapped, so here we stay.

 

It’s going to be a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time.

It’s going to be a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time.

It’s going to be a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time.

It’s going to be a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, time.

from now

walking out on the street

it’s going to be a long time from now.

Av

SWEET MELINDA.

Sweet Melinda I have to go,

got to burn my heart aches in the snow

North winds beckon my heart to go, oh,

blow you north winds blow.

 

Branded my mind,

love as sweet as very fine wine

Oh, when it was nice.

Then love took its turn

and for someone else's heart she yearned

then mine was ice.

(CHORUS)

How was I to know

 these winter winds would blow

away our love.

And when those winds had come,

 they had beaten like a drum

with push and shoves.

(CHORUS)

Her love for me was strong,

 but wasn’t strong as she let on,

just being nice

 I played along with disdain

But love never reigned

in our Paradise

 

(CHORUS)

"Forevermore"

by Alx Krys

C2019

 

You lie there, unaware, I stared

thinking of you

and why, you’ll be

 forevermore.

You then turn, my heart yearns, I learned

you’re the only

one, I’ll love

forevermore.

And what about our tomorrow?

And what of our today?

And then, when turns our tomorrow

Will our love be left for our yesterdays?

 

I know you, you’re so new, but few

will realize that

your love’s

forevermore.

Please don’t cry and just sigh, knowing why

it’s peacefully

to see you’re one of

forevermore.

END

by Alx Krys c2019

 

EASING THRU HEAVEN’S HALLS

LINED ROWS OF PICTURED SAINTS AND ALL

WHO AREN’T ABLE TO FEEL THEIR FALL (OFF THE WALL)

OR COMPLAIN ABOUT THEIR PAIN

 

I’VE PRAYED BEYOND ALL MY TRUST

TO FIND ONLY THOSE WHO MUST

BE ONE WITH EMPTINESS THAT RUSTS

BUT WHERE SHADOWS FADE TO LIGHT

 

LOOKING BACK AT ALL THE YEARS

WATCHING THE CREAM RISE TO THE TOP

AND WONDERING IF LIFE WILL EVER BE

EXTENDED BEFORE MINE STOPS

#

(CHORUS)HARMONY)

AT TIMES I’LL MISS AND REMINISCE

 OF ALL THOSE DAYS BEING CAVALIER

BUT THOSE TIMES HAVE FLOATED AWAY

LIKE DANDELION FLUFFING THE AIR

#

MY SUN’S RAYS ARE CLOUDED OUT  

WHILE I’M HOLDING BACK, THIS LIVING IN DOUBT

AND FINDING OUT MY ANGST BRINGS TO SHOUT

THAT LIFE’S NOT LEAVING ME BEHIND...

 

I’M NOT WILLING TO THROW IN MY CHIPS

OR WANT EVERYTHING THAT LIFE GIVES

JUST WANT THAT PIECE OF THE PIE

GIVING ME MY REASONS TO LIVE

           

“WHY ME?” AND WHO SAVES HIS REMARKS

ABOUT THE RISKS THIS CRISIS BRINGS

SO, FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE, GIVE A BREAK

AND TAKE AWAY THIS CANCEROUS THING
