Nothing Left to Lose

Nothing Left To Lose©

Word & Music By Seth Ginsburg

Walnut chestnut, heather’d hills
Laughing in the rain
Sometimes it feels so strange
That this is memory

Holding on to the telephone line
Feeling tired and confused
There’s nothing left to do …

Too many things have gone too wrong
To try and start all over again
My best friend
will be gone

So go to sleep beloved friend
Good night my darling one
Have dreams of perfect love
That you will find some day

No, I will be OK
There’s no reason to cry
Just something in my eye

Too many things have gone too wrong
To try and start all over again
My best friend
Is gone

Walnut chestnut, heather’d hills
Laughing in the rain
Sometimes it feels so strange …

We Were Neighborly

We Were Neighborly

Words & Music By: Seth Ginsburg

Maybe it was just our neighborhood
And the friendliness of Western PA
But, to me. folks seemed more neighborly
Back in the day

We would say “Howdy do”
“How about you?”
“It’s a long time no see.”

We’d share a few words
Over fences and curbs
With the people we’d see

We didn’t have to really really know each other
To say something nice or something about the weather
We simply recognized that we all lived together
We were neighborly

“I’ll hold your place in the line”
“Sure, that would be fine.”
“Thanks being so good.”

We would wave as we passed.
Folks rarely drove fast.
Around the neighborhood

We didn’t have to really really know each other
To say something nice or something about the weather
We simply recognized that we all lived together
We were neighborly

But now we’re all afraid
Suspicion clouds each face
We drive our SUV’s
Armored and tinted so that no one can see

Now, nobody walks and talks
Our iPods seal us off
We don’t have much to say
And we’re probably rather text it anyway

Think how nice it would be
If everybody we’d see
Was someone we knew

So lose your cell phones
Walk outside of your homes
And greet someone new

We don’t have to really really know each other
To say something nice or something about the weather
If we simply recognize that we all live together
And be neighborly

Let’s be neighborly…
How about you and me . . .
