HOW DID I MISS

Earl Usry

9/5/18

She won't answer her cell phone

Won't return my text

She dropped off of FaceBook

What can I do next?

She left here last Friday

While I was at work

There was no note left for me

No message, left in a lurch

Had she been unhappy?

Was I too busy at work?

She's the love of my life

Had I been a jerk?

I thought things were perfect

But here am I all alone

Not knowing if she's OK

Has me worried, scared to my bones

CHORUS      How?  How did I miss?

               Seeing her misery, feeling only bliss

                   How?  How did I miss?

                 Did she try to tell me, with our last kiss?

                   How?  How did I miss?

Still won't answer her cell phone

Won't return my text

Dropped off of FaceBook

What can I do next?

I've called all her friends

Asking if they've heard

I'm drenched in such sorrow

But hoping for just a word...

CHORUS      How?  How did I miss?

                  Seeing her misery, feeling only bliss

                  How?  How did I miss?

                  Did she try to tell me, with our last kiss?

                  How?  How did I miss?

The Terrible Cost

Earl Usry

August 2018

A sweet little boy with eyes full of love

A tender heart filled with the peace of a dove

Looking for the comfort of a parent's hug

The craving of a young little innocent heart

Lost in the search for where he should start

Overcome with fear as his world falls apart

CHORUS      He feels lost

                   And oh, the terrible cost...

Addicted mom and dad often fail to understand

The needs of a child when they live in dreamland

Addiction always needs more cash in hand

And a sweet little boy finds no comfort at all

Cries through the night in fear of the fall

Grows up thinking life is always hard ball

CHORUS      He feels lost

                   And oh, the terrible cost...

BRIDGE        Young man living without a place

                    In a world where life seems just a waste

                    Hopelessness, the disconnect

                    A life he knows as only disrespect

                    He turns to crime, to fill the void

                    Left empty in a tender-hearted boy

                    Just another man locked away

                    Another little boy we failed to save

Another sweet little boy with eyes full of love

A tender heart filled with the peace of a dove

Looking for the comfort of his parent's hug

The craving of another young innocent heart

Lost in the search for where he should start

Overcome with fear as his world's torn apart

CHORUS      He feels lost

                   And oh, the terrible cost...
