DON'T WASTE MY TIME                      

Don't waste my time
It's all that's mine

Don't hold me close
just to be kind

Don't give me hope
if you plan to leave

It isn't eev-
en remotely fine

 

Don't play with me
It hurts you see

Don't pull me close
and then let me go

Don't draw me near
then disappear

Don't think just of you
I'm in this too

 

          This isn't
          a dance
          But two lives
          in one romance
          that doesn't seem
          to have a chance

 

Yet there needs to be
     space
for uncertainty

So where's the
     place
to wonder at ease?
to come and to go?
to get to know?
to be unsure?

I'm sure
I don't know

I know, though

Don't pull me close
just to let me go

As you realize
it isn't eeev-

en a white lie
when you deceive

perhaps yourself
as well as me

 

          I'm not perfect
          and you know it

          I'm not ideal
          far from it

          If that's what you want
          it's not me that you'll get

          And should you want a perfect fit
          once more, I'm not it

          But I'm real
          and I feel

 

So don't play with me
It hurts you see

And in the end
it angers me

All I can say
is, you pull away

just once more
and it's over, for sure

that's the score

 

As they say
in another game

Three strikes
and you're out

It's over
You're out
That's it

This is one of the first pieces I wrote, in the first month or two of songs coming into my mind. And more musicians have done music for it than for any other piece.

The first version was very country, on a CD put out by Montreal musician Irwin Veronneau. Then came Fred Fizet's more folky version - upbeat but with melancholy undertones. Later a tango version. And most recently (but still half a dozen years ago), a spoken word version with Michel Robidoux, done in the hope of getting a grant to fund a spoken work CD. (Also with Michel Robidoux, The Echo of the Echo and It's Taboo.)

As it turned out, that push for a grant came just about at the end of years of struggle to somehow get out into the world through finding musicians and also through finally getting a grant. Grants received: zero, though lots of positive reviews (and some negative).

Life took over - other things came to the forefront.

Last year I came back to my creative works, knowing that I needed a site. I didn't know just how it would shape up, but I knew utterly and profoundly that my works needed a home base, from which I could try to help them make their way into the world.

Lots of plans. Webcasts. Podcasts. Zee's Cafe Cafe.

But first, a home space.

Now it feels I'm very much at the jumping off point into the next phase.

For now I've dug out the spoken word version. Kind of professional sounding. And Fred's. I like the sound of it. Also, I happened to have those two on my computer.

More is to be done - especially a version that comes close to what I hear in my head - but these versions will stay.

Don't Waste My Time, it's all that's mine.
Elsas Words Music Songs.
Don’t hold me close, just to be kind.
Don't give me hope, if you plan to leave.
Country Music Love Hurts Song. Lyrics.


A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.





WORDS MUSIC WORDS

Every time I'm going
into the words not knowing
what kind of thing I'm doing
what is this thing I'm making
what are these words creating

words music and me
words music can be
words music going
into worlds
not knowing
what words music worlds
the worlds will be

Words music, music words, rhythm beat,
sad love song lyrics, breakup poems,
break up songs, song lyrics country music,
break up sad love poems

Spoken word, song,
words beat,
rap poetry,
trip hip unhip unzipped
whispered, shouted, sung.

What is this?
sad love song lyrics,
song lyrics country music

words music words
rhythm beat strong
words to be spoken
words to be sung
words to be lived
moments

break up songs
break up moments
song lyrics country music
more moments

word music worlds
rhythm beat

What's cooking?

sad love song lyrics,
breakup poems,
break up songs
potential breakup song
real country love hurts song
song lyrics country music
break up sad love poems

What's cooking?
Whatever comes -
words alive
words strong
words music worlds
rhythm beat
strong
movement
words moving
words shaping
words taking
words trying
     to catch life
     to catch moments
        moments like fireflies
          one moment bright
          next moment gone
words
words and rhythm
words to be spoken
words to be sung
words, sounds, music

word music worlds

words going on and on
like the beat of a drum
word pieces
piecing together moments

word music worlds

stronger
fainter
closer

and then
can't hear
they're gone

like moments
