Regret

(Jay Egan)

We all have regrets, times in our lives when we picked the wrong sliding door, many inconsequential but some life defining. Regardless, at times, we think about what might have been knowing very well that there is nothing we can do about it now.

I truly think, through all these years To sum me up is to see through tears The old regrets of moments past Oh how the years have gone too fast I used to think, when i was young and tarnished with the devils tongue that all my life i would succeed how wrong i was as i lay and bleed My moments past and my time is at an end my friend, was once, my only memory to keep me sane and push me through life if only i'd kept the path made for me Regretting just about everything i'd done reminding myself of a life with no fun my decisions let me down time again pushing me deeper into the lions den How could i hold my head up high When i'm dying inside while outside i cry Too elusive my pride as i run and hide from the pain that i know will never subside Take me back to a better time and place Back when i ruled all time and space And any rude comment i'd brush off of my back And you'd never be ready for my comeback What happened to me why didn't i see the changes that happened to my physicality I never saw the signs, i never knew the times When my confidence left me, no rhymes XX XXXX X XX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXX XX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX X XXXXXX XXX X XXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXXX X XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XX XXX XXX XX X XXXX X XXXXXXX XXX X XXXXXX XXXX XX XXX XXX XX XXXX XX XX XXXX XX XX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXX XXX XX XXXX XX XX XX XXX XX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX

The Lonely War

By Jay Egan


War can turn an innocent child into a fearless killing machine, and it takes little time when they are thrown into a war that had nothing to do with them. This is more a story than a song, but with the right instrumentation could become a timeless allegory on the perils of war.

The Silent Killer

By Jay Egan


A love-letter to the city from a serial killer, taunting them and daring them catch him. His arrogance easily comes to the fore as he promises to hurt those he crosses.

Little Rock

By Jay Egan


Mental Illness and Anxiety can leave you feeling small and insignificant. People quite often don't understand and instead of getting help it is easy to withdraw further into your own surroundings. No matter the fight, and after countless times of being beaten down, even a boulder can become just a 'little rock.'
