Inside Looking Out – By John Dewberry

Behind the walls, these bars and this glass,
I remember the years that just slid past.
In sadness, I wonder what life’s really about,
as I sit on the inside looking out.

With only my hopes, my wishes, my dreams,
everything is gone now or so it seems.
Wanting to cry, to scream and then shout,

as I sit on the inside looking out.

Wanting to run, but where could I hide?
Behind these walls, these bars and glass,
I try to forget the years as they slide past.
I realize that freedom is what it’s all about,
as I sit on the inside looking out.



I Never Cry – By John Dewberry
I never cry anymore

But, sometimes when the wind’s just right
It blows a mist into my eyes
But I never cry, I never cry.

I don’t get sad these days
I just get allergic when a sad song plays
It gets hard to breath and I don’t know why
But
I never cry, I never cry.

I don’t feel lonely by myself
But sometimes
I wonder what it’s like to have someone miss you when you die
But I never cry, I never cry.

I have no memories of being hurt
There’s none I’ll trust for a long time, long time
I guess some people would call me shy
But I never cry, I never cry.

I don’t think about my freedom
Or what I would give for a chance to spread my wings and fly
And I never cry, I never cry.

No, I just don’t cry no more
But sometimes when the winds just right
It blows a mist into my eyes
But I never cry…. I never cry.
