Blue 03:00
Songs are like tattoos You know I've been to sea before Crown and anchor me Or let me sail away Hey Blue There is a song for you Ink on a pin Underneath the skin An empty space to fill in Well there're so many sinking Now you've got to keep thinking You can make it thru these waves Acid, booze, and ass Needles, guns, and grass Lots of laughs  Lots of laughs Everybody's saying that hell's the hippest way to go well  I don't think so  Gonna take a look around it though Blue I love you Hey Blue  Here is a shell for you Inside you'll hear a sigh A foggy lullaby Here is your song from me

Crazy 03:45
I go crazy Sometimes when I'm alone And I thinks things That really aren't my own I'm so desperate I reach for the telephone For someone to save me When I'm sinking like a stone Then you're there even when you're not there Then you're there even when you're not there Always like a spark in the distance somewhere You're still there even when you're not there I'm awakened From the longest dream And I'm shaking The fear is gripping me Why can't this be easy Why can't there be some way around I'm so trapped by All the secrets I have found Then you're there even when you're not there Then you're there even when you're not there  How can you be both a circle and a square You're still there even when you're not there This is what I know This is what I know Don't ask me how I know There's this language That I don't understand In between the lines It slips right through my hands Certain, I'm frozen where I stand Listening gently As every sentence lands Then you're there even when you're not there Then you're there even when you're not there  Always like a spark in the distance somewhere You're still there even when you're not there Then you're there even when you're not there Then you're there even when you're not there  How can you be both a circle and a square You're still there even when you're not there Words and Music by Don Hawkins

The milk truck hauls the sun up The paper hits the door And the subway shakes my floor And I think about you Time to face the dawning gray Of another lonely day It's so hard living without you It's so hard It's so hard It's so hard living without you Ev'ryone's got something They're out tryin' to get some more They got something to get up for But I ain't about to Nothing's gonna happen Nothing's gonna change It's so hard living without you It's so hard It's so hard It's so hard living without you

Pop Life 03:40
What's the matter with your life 
Is the poverty bringing you down? 
Is the mailman jerking you 'round?
 Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box? Tell me, what's the matter with your world
? Was it a boy when you wanted a girl? (boy when you wanted a girl)
 Don't you know straight hair ain't got no curl (no curl) 
Life it ain't real funky
Unless it's got that pop, Dig it Pop life
 Everybody needs a thrill
 Pop life
 We all got a space to fill
 Pop life
 Everybody can't be on top
 But life it ain't real funky 
Unless it's got that pop, Dig it Tell me, what's that underneath your hair?
 Is there anybody living there? (anybody living there)
 You can't get over, if you say you just don't care (don't care)
 Show me a boy who stays in school
 And I'll show you a boy aware, Dig it Pop life
 Everybody needs a thrill
 Pop life
 We all got a space to fill
 Pop life
 Everybody can't be on top
 But life it ain't real funky
 Unless it's got that pop, Dig it

Broken windows and empty hallways, A pale dead moon in a sky streaked with grey. Human kindness is overflowing, And I think it's going rain today. Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles, The frozen smiles to chase love away. Human kindness is overflowing, And I think it's going rain today. Lonely, lonely. Tin can at my feet, I think I'll kick it down the street. That's the way to treat a friend. Bright before me the signs implore me: Help the needy and show them the way. Human kindness is overflowing, And I think it's going rain today.

about

"If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants." - Sir Isaac Newton.

"There is no doubt that I have been lifted up to greater heights by those who choose to create music. 'It's Personal' is a small sampling of five songs showcasing a handful of artists, who's work has affected me greatly in my life. There are many, many more of course, so hopefully, this is just the beginning." - Gail George
