Miss Liberty

Grady Echegaray ~ 21st March, 2011

I have no wine to offer you today
No finery to offer you today

My father has passed on
And his riches I have won

I’ve sold my stores to buy a berth on a ship to sail away

For I will be a gentleman and not a stowaway

I will fly away to the land where rivers shine everlastingly

With gold and silver when I see Miss Liberty

I know she’ll keep me
I know she’ll keep me

Safe and warm and free

Holy Roller

Grady Echegaray ~ February 21, 2011

Love me once again and leave me full of longing
For you fill my head with diamonds shining like a thousand seas

Shining like a holy roller
Falling down upon his knees

Saying push me up to heaven
Oh god almighty please

They say it’s only lust that sprinkles fairy dust
But give me some of that stuff before I go

Though I’ll be gone again a-rolling on the ocean
I will write you long love letters that are scented like the sea

The sun will rise again and your eyes will slowly open
And I’ll fall just like an angel, like a sword into the sea
