i wish

I wish I had somebody to sing to tonight. I broke out a guitar and I went searching through the memory banks for old songs that I played all alone here in the Crackerbox. "The First Time." "In the Morning When She Rise." "Long, Black Veil." "The Last Thing On My Mind."

I could have loved you better
didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

I like those old songs. I can still sing "Barbra Allen" and a lot of those mountain durges I learned as a child. I put on the finger-picks and did some nice guitar playing to four walls. I played "Ribbon of Darkness" and "Please Come To Boston." I played "Gentle on My Mind" and "Louise." I played "Sleepy-Eyed Boy." I have a pretty good baritone voice and I like to sing.

Where, oh where
Is my sleepy-eyed boy?

I just wish I had someone to sing to tonight. Just sit there on the couch and let me serenade you. You can cover your legs with a blanket and I won't mind. Go to sleep if you want to. Just listen for a while.

I want to sing.

I'd listen....

I know that feeling you have.
Yet another reason why it's good to have horses... (go for a ride and sing to them.)

I loved the Glaser's version of "The Last Thing on my Mind".

I have voice on my IM. You can sing to me anytime. Turn down the lights, put on your headset, light a cigarette to burn red and small in the darkness. I'll even sing along.

Good luck getting him to go on YIM... I have him listed and he's NEVER lit up (that smilie?). I've seen him come on line once or twice, but he always goes to "invisible" or disconnects right away... so I just kinda wave as he zooms by.

Siiiigh. Yeah, I have voice on there, too.

*thinking wishfully*

Wishing Rob or someone would sing to you, Stevie?

Ask. What's the worst that could happen? They say "no"? Take a chance. Explore risk. No one will give you what you want or need if they don't know your longings or desires.
