Stood Up

Standing in a nice dress
Waiting for you
Starting to rain and
You’re twenty minutes late
Beginning to wonder
If I should even bother

It’s always the same
I’m left standing alone
Waiting for someone
Who isn’t gonna show
Guess this isn’t gonna happen

Tonight
It doesn’t matter what you’d say
I’m the best you’d ever catch
So forget your excuses
You’ve lost this one, pal.
No longer a player
You laid down your cards
Shoulda moved a little faster
If you wanted me at all

Ohohohoh, ohohohoh

Looks like it’s a take two
You get a second chance
Can’t tell me
I’m nothing but nice
And here we go
The drama starts again

It’s always the same
I’m left standing alone
Waiting for someone
Who isn’t gonna show
Guess this isn’t gonna happen

Tonight
It doesn’t matter what you’d say
I’m the best you’d ever catch
So forget your excuses
You’ve lost this one, pal.
No longer a player
You laid down your cards
Shoulda moved a little faster
If you wanted me at all

Ohohohoh, ohohohoh

Time to move on,
You aren’t worth the wait
I’m better than this
And we both know it.

‘Cos it’s always the same
I’m left standing alone
Waiting for someone
Who isn’t gonna show
Guess this isn’t gonna happen

Tonight
It doesn’t matter what you’d say
I’m the best you’d ever catch
So forget your excuses
You’ve lost this one, pal.
No longer a player
You laid down your cards
Shoulda moved a little faster
If you wanted me at all

My Ex-Boyfriend

Dedicated to the asshole who broke up with my pal. Guess what? You’re an asshole.


 

I want a storm
That matches my rage
At you;
Destructive in its power
And unforgiving

I want your mirror
To reflect
The damage you’ve done
Jagged and cracked;
Unfixable.

You’ve the opposite of a midas touch,
You’re a devil in disguise
Just a judas kiss
And a guilty conscience
You’re poisonous inside

So I don’t want your apologies
Because this is the end
We’re finished, it’s over
There’s nothing left to pretend

You may go on
but all I can say,
Is that I wish you the worst
Bye, ex-boyfriend.

Potentially?

Being with you,

It’s like a summer’s day

We can be beautiful

But ultimately, we fade away

Makes me wonder, will we last?

 

Being with you,

It’s like walking in shadows

We’re shrouded. Private

Sometimes I can’t help but wonder

Will we stay hidden forever?

 

Being with you,

It’s a rollercoaster

So much fun

Yet so much could go wrong

I wonder which we might be

 

Being with you,

It makes me wonder

I don’t feel like I deserve this

So in awe in your presence

But maybe this once

I’ll let the mystery be

A happy ending, potentially?

BBC Radio Shropshire – ‘Persuasion’ Review by Chris Eldon Lee

My friend Peter Randall and his theatre production given the thumbs up from the BBC!

Hotbuckle Productions

Hotbuckle is the loveliest of our little theatre companies…and smart with it. They present exquisite productions of some of the nation’s favourite novels with a minimum of fuss and bother; charming full houses into romantic sighs and fits of respectable giggles….before packing everything away into a horsebox trailer, with the company’s logo stuck to the tail gate.

What comes out of the horsebox are four white flats, three period chairs, a handful of musical instruments, four very fine actors and a host of memorable caricatures.

At my second encounter with the company at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn last night, I felt a little like an endangered species. Sitting in the 250 seats were 235 women ( so just 15 men, then ) most of whom clearly knew the novel intimately. And what we got was Austen unplugged; performed with so much care and attention to detail the author herself would have…
