OUT NOW! MY NEWEST ALBUM “MADE ON A FRIDAY”

AND THE FIRST SONG IS….

MADE ON A FRIDAY
(Craig Robertson 2021)

I was made on a Friday
they were thinking of the weekend
they were planning for a date
they were going off the deepend

I was made on a Friday
they were twenty minutes late
they weren’t paying attention
they were making mistakes

I was made on a Friday
using lots of spare parts
I didn’t get a conscience
but instead got two hearts

changing me is like trying to change the weather
I never know what’s wrong until it’s wrong
I’m light as a rock and heavy as a feather
how come you never notice I’m here until I’m gone?

I was made on a Friday
It’s easy to tell
I don’t believe in Heaven
I don’t believe in Hell

I was made on a Friday
I’m immune to your lies
I’ve got x-ray vision
in one of my eyes.

I was made on a Friday
it’s obvious to me
why else would I be
what I am when I’m me?

Not Everything Broken Can Be Fixed…the 8th song on the album “Forgotten”

NOT EVERYTHING BROKEN CAN BE FIXED
(Robertson 2021)

Not everything broken can be fixed
With glue and twine and popsicle sticks
with a wave of the hand or magic tricks
not everything broken can be fixed

not everything fixed will stay that way
a year a week a month a day
it doesn’t matter what you say
not everything fixed will stay that way

not every break can be seen
sometimes the light shines in between
all the cracks in this machine
not every break can be seen

not anything can stop a heart
that begins to come apart
every ending has a start
not anything can save a heart

nothing ever stays the same
things change shape and change their name
everybody is to blame
nothing ever stays the same

The Menace…the sixth song on my latest album “Forgotten”

THE MENACE
(Robertson 2021)

I like to lie
I don’t have to try
it comes as easily as breathing
I can look you in the eye
and then up in the sky
it goes down as easily as leaving

I like to swim
it keeps me trim
I’m friends with all the fishes
I’ll take my time
it’s all mine
I’ll ruin your hopes and wishes

the statues of the saints and poets
are strewn about the garden
waiting for the concrete in
their pedestals to harden

there’s a simple window
in my simple room
where I can see the sunrise
and when it sets
I just forget
that I ever told you any lies

it doesn’t matter
what’s the matter
I don’t like to bear a grudge
you may not like
the way I live
but it’s not your place to judge

I fell asleep on the beach
the one right next to Venice
and no one dared to wake me up
I can be such a menace

PERFECT POINTS, the fifth song on my newest album “Forgotten”

PERFECT POINTS
(Robertson 2021)

I wish that I could read your thoughts
then I’d know just what I ought
to do. we live in dangerous times
(say something here that rhymes)

There you go, you’re looking good
I’ve seen you in the neighborhood
but I’ve only seen you late at night
never in the morning light

I always liked the way you smile
even though your teeth are filed
to sharp little points and shiny white
it looks good but it’s not right

I’ve seen you leaning on the wall
of the old Harundale Mall
in the dark between the lights
occasionally on moonless nights

I don’t have a lot of nerve
but there are no masters that I serve
there is no one I look up to
there is no one I look down on

chorus

I know you know what people say
they look at you and look away
they never look you in the eye
I think I know the reason why

your skin is white your eyes are red
I know what everybody said
what they whisper behind your back
why you always wear all black

chorus

“Kansas City Confidential” the 4th song on my newest album “Forgotten”

KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL
(Robertson 2021)

we can meet at the playground
it’s the middle of the night
the one closest to your house
but far enough to be out of sight
this whole thing makes me nervous
sneakin’ around at night
you say a little excitement is good
I’m not sure you’re right

I’m driving along tonight
the neighborhood is residential
I’ve got the wipers going
the rains are torrential
there ain’t no one around
to see what’s goin’ down
Kansas City confidential

too many cats in the windows
too many dogs in the yards
too many nights without you
is tonight my reward?
Ain’t no stars in the sky
the clouds cover the moon
I think I have to slow down
I’m going to get there too soon.

I’m driving along tonight
the neighborhood is residential
I’ve got the wipers going
the rains are torrential
there ain’t no one around
to see what’s goin’ down
Kansas City confidential
