Blue Whale City
By Rae Hering

We’re two fish of a fin on a window sill,
Looking out on Industrial Avenue.

Fac’try disastaries purge out chemical burp,
The scenery’s an eye sore, but it’s the smell that hurts.

Two fish takin’ a risky casualness on a ledge,
Our goldfish bowl is on the edge of 

Digestion in the belly of a Blue Whale City,
It could swallow us whole.
Oblivious puffy little buggy-eyed guppies are
Wantin’ to know
Why the sky has a blow hole.

Strange fish populace making precarious racket
And everyone else is everyone else’s traffic.
Get out of my way!

But, our own seashell-sized home is a strangely warm crevice
Looking out into the bowels of the 

Loneliest belly of a Blue Whale City,
It could swallow us whole.
Bottom-feeder cheaters, scrappy low-life creatures are
Catchin’ on slow.
There sayin’ “Geez, the seabed seems to be short


A few feet, or somethin.’ 
I hardly have room to breathe!”

Oblivious puffy little buggy-eyed guppies are
Wantin’ to know
Why the sky has a blow hole.

Blurry Bodies
By Rae Hering

Blurry bodies of waiters pass against the wall,
Thank God none of them notice I’m not
Ordering their food.
I’m non-discriminate, background-poised,
Smudge on the countertop.

Two, three, four conversations like an audible collage
Fill in the empty seat in front of me
Like a mirage.
I’m undistinguished as one man’s voice
In the diner din.

 I remember feeling a warm seat
Huddled into this booth from bitter days like these.
But since the hospital something’s been lost,
My hands are numb indoors,
My breath no longer shows up with the frost…. 

My blurry memory’s slipping with my slumping sight.
Even this restaurant’s resisting
To solidify.
I’m un-depictable as this old
Diner’s memory of me.

 

Canyon
By Rae Hering and Jonathan Morse

We walk the line of fracture and fault,
Pretending it’s not there as it tears us apart.
We choose our explanations, carry on with our lives,
Silent conversation fills our minds.

That’s all it took,
A little crack in the ground,
Now take a look
At what’s between us now.
That’s all it took,
A little crack in the ground we stand on.

We’re on two sides of the canyon,
Two sides of the canyon,
Two sides of the canyon,
With only echoes, echoes in between.

We’ve cut away our lives, our borders,
I stood mine and you stood yours.
The river that connects us is the one that divides,
Can we live with the truth we can’t let die?

That’s all it took,
A little crack in the ground,
Now take a look
At what’s between us now.
That’s all it took,
A little crack in the ground we stand on.

We’re on two sides of the canyon,
Two sides of the canyon,
Two sides of the canyon,
With only echoes, echoes in between.

I want to run to you,
I want to run to you.

We’re on two sides of the canyon,
Two sides of the canyon,
Two sides of the canyon,
With only echoes, echoes in between.

Daddy's Little Girl
By Rae Hering

I’m gonna make you love me,
We’re gonna build a castle,
You’re gonna kiss and hug me
When you see I’m special.

Cuz you can be my hero
And save my whole wide world,
I’m gonna make you love me
Like I’m Daddy’s little girl.

When it rains and thunders
You’ll be at my pillow
You’ll tell me there’s no monsters
Rattling my window

So come and light my candle,
Light my whole wide world,
I’m gonna make you love me
Like I’m Daddy’s little girl.

Yes, I’m gonna make you love me
Cuz I’m Daddy’s little girl.

Heartbreak Hang-Up
By Rae Hering

You lie on the bed,
Staring at what’s left
Of life as you knew it.
Can’t even imagine
Moving from this mansion
Of disappointment.
Love left without a word,
Nothing to ensure
That it was all worth it.

Forget getting any sleep,
An angry mob of thoughts
Is running through your streets.

So you got a heartbreak hang-up,
The kind that kills so close,
But I don’t want to see you hang up those hopes.
Heartbreak hang-up.       
                                                               .

Each day, facing all your friends,
Conversation can
Be cruel as silence.
Sympathy just taunts you,
Everybody wants you
To be you again.
But no, a clown is in your place,
The smile on it’s face
Will have a laugh or two,

Then you go home all alone,
That angry mob of thoughts
Is breaking down your door. (Bang! Bang!)            

So you got a heartbreak hang-up,
The kind that kills so close,
But I don’t want to see you hang up those hopes.
One of these sleepless nights you’ll wake up
And see that plans were made to change,
But I know right now your mind is made up
To have a heartbreak hang-up.

So you got a heartbreak hang-up. (Heartbreak hang-up.)
But I don’t want to see you hang up those hopes.  (Heartbreak hang-up)
One of these sleepless nights you’ll wake up
And see that plans were made to change.
But I know right now your mind is made up
To have a heartbreak hang-up.

A heartbreak hang-up,
A heartbreak hang-up.
A heartbreak hang-up,
A heartbreak hang-up.

Here Comes the Sun
By The Beatles

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
It's all right, it's all right

Hum Diddle
By Rae Hering

You like the shade and I like the sun,
Find it kinda hard to choose just one,
So if we sit by the line of the shade of the tree,
Happy is you and happy is me.

So we’re pickin’ up our picnic every half an hour
So you can shield from the sun and I can bask in its power,
And we’re laughing at ourselves and the way this world turns,

Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle,
Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle.

You’ll say yes and I’ll say no,
You’ll say stop and I’ll say go
If it seems we’re caught in a rotten pickle
Let’s pick up and move to the middle.

Now we’re pickin’ up our picnic every half an hour
So you can shield from the sun and I can bask in its power,
And we’re laughing at ourselves and the way this world turns,

Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle,
Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle.

You’ll say what and I’ll say why
You’ll turn left and I’ll turn right
And if it seems we’re caught in opposite riddles let’s
Pick up and move to the middle.

Now we’re pickin’ up our picnic every half an hour
So you can shield from the sun and I can bask in its power,
And we’re laughing at ourselves and the way this world turns,

Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle,
Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle.

You like the shade and I like the sun,
Find it kinda hard to choose just one,
So if we sit by the line of the shade of the tree,
Happy is you and happy is me.

Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle,
Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle
Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle,
Oh hum diddle oh hum diddle.

Natural Disaster
By Rae Hering and Jonathan Morse

I’m in a head space, tonight, erase, 
All these thoughts.
Fix me up with your pick-me-Uptown’s
Where I wanna get lost.

Take me out like a tornado,
I wanna go faster, faster,
You and I don’t have to try, 
We’re a natural disaster.

Oh, I know better
But you got something, you got something I like
Oh, nothing matters
Cuz you got something, you got something I like
Oh, I know better
But you got something, you got something I like
The way you take me faster, faster,
We’re a natural disaster.

We’re in the mood to undo, let’s move,
Making it our mission
To burn down this town, fill ‘er up,
Drown all my inhibition.

Wash me out like a hurrican,
I wanna go faster, faster,
You and I don’t have to try,
We’re a natural disaster.

Oh, I know better
But you got something, you got something I like
Oh, nothing matters
Cuz you got something, you got something I like
Oh, I know better
But you got something, you got something I like
The way you take me faster, faster,

Don’t wanna think about it
Till the morning, till the morning,
Just gotta get it out
Till the morning, till the morning,
Don’t wanna think about it
Till the morning, till the morning

I wanna go faster, faster,
You and I don’t have to try,                  
We’re a natural disaster.

Oh, I know better
But you got something, you got something I like
Oh, nothing matters
Cuz you got something, you got something I like
Oh, I know better
But you got something, you got something I like
The way you take me faster, faster,
We’re a natural disaster.

Navigator/Aviator
By Rae Hering

If you’ll be my navigator
I can be your aviator
And we’ll go taking off.
Let me be your instigator,
You can be my regulator
And we’ll get good and lost

Cuz I’m in the mood to
Burn up some altitude
And turn up some place I never heard of.
You’ve got that cool, calm
Attitude for latitude,
As long as you know A to B
Then in between is up to me!

If you’ll be my navigator
I can be your aviator
And we’ll go taking off,
Just the two of us.
Let me be your instigator ,
You can be my regulator
And when we’re good and lost ,
We’ll just laugh it off.

Bum ba dum ba dum… 

You could use a little more adventure
And I could learn to slow down.
Two misfits who somehow fit together,
Now we’re going, going, gone!
We’re gone.

I’ll bring the passion,
You’ll keep us from crashing,
Then we can conquer the sky.
When I’m headed for happenstance
You’ll keep us intact,
But ask me if I’ve learned my lesson,
Not quite yet let’s do it again.

If you’ll be my navigator,
I can be your aviator.

If you’ll be my navigator
I can be your aviator
And we’ll go taking off,
Just the two of us.
Let me be your instigator ,
You can be my regulator
And when we’re good and lost ,
We’ll just laugh it off.

And we’ll get good and lost,
I’m saying when we’re good and lost,
We’ll just laugh it off.

Bum ba dum ba dum…

If you’ll be my navigator,
I can be your aviator.

Robots
By Rae Hering

We are robots, robots,
We are robots, robots,
We are robots, robots,
Taking over the world

Just try to stop us, stop us,
Try to stop us, stop us,
Just try to stop us, stop us,
We are coded for control

We’ve been programed
By your command
To destroy man
Fast as we can

You may call it innovation
We would call it domination!

We are robots, robots,
We are robots, robots,
We are robots, robots,
Taking over the world

Smile
By Rae Hering and Laura Vance

I keep a smile on me all the time
It’s on the tip of my lips, ready to shine
It’s easy to carry, in fact it’s carefree,
Yeah, I keep a smile on me

A sunny face can chase the boo hoos away,
Say hello on its own but can go with a waive,
It’s universal but unique to you,
It’s simple! Raise a dimple or two,

So smile, you won’t regret it if you
Smile, no one forgets it when you             
Smile, life is better with a smile

A grin is always in any time of year,
It’s classy to be happy from ear to ear,
Life’s short, so why not sport that happy cliché,
Break it in and wear it out today.

So smile, you won’t regret it if you
Smile, no one forgets it when you             
Smile, life is better with a smile

It’s a waste of face, if you don’t erase, what clouds up the space
Below your nose, north of your chin, 
So don’t you know good things begin
With a

So smile,
A little smile
Come on and smile
Life is better with a smile


Just smile, you won’t regret it if you
Smile, no one forgets it when you             
Smile, life is better with a smile.

The Musikan
By Rae Hering

Life is hum-drum so I bang my drum.
Rhythmic tantric isn’t life, it’s fun.
And when my friends call me dumb
There’s drums, drums, drums, drums, drums.

Cool kids are nasty so I play my keys.
I can’t wait ‘til I am great, they’ll be sorry.
And when my friends call me geek
There’s keys, keys, keys, keys, keys.

Boyfriend-wishing so I strum my strings.
Sounds as good or better than romance things.
And when my friends call me single
There’s strings and I might sing a little, singin’…

Watercolor
By Rae Hering

I want to paint with my watercolors,
Sit down alone with my own thoughts and not be bothered,
Yes I want to blur the lines, release my own design,
I want to get to know my, get to know myself again.

And I want to spin around in circles,
Feel giddy getting dizzy, laughing like a little girl,
I’m going back to what’s inside, cuz the truth it cannot hide,
I want to get to know my, get to know myself

Again,
No room for doubting
Who I am,
Just breathe it out and
Start again,
When I lose my way,
When my world looks gray,
Don’t know one gray line from another,
I’ll paint my path in watercolor.

And no matter what I’m letting nothing phase me,
Yeah, I’m shaking off my wish-y washy maybes,
Every molecule, every mole, every finite follicle’s
Got to get to know my, get to know myself

Again,
No room for doubting
Who I am,
Just breathe it out and
Start again,
When I lose my way,
When my world looks gray,
Don’t know one gray line from another,
I’ll paint my path in watercolor.

I can feel my reds and blues,
They’re coming up strong, they’re shining through,
I’m washed in yellow, painted purple,
I’ve got to get to know my, get to know myself

Again,
No room for doubting
Who I am,
Just breathe it out and
Start again,
When I lose my way,
When my world looks gray,
Don’t know one gray line from another,
I’ll paint my path in watercolor.

Wordless Words
By Rae Hering

Kissing on the kitchen floor,
Sweeping our worries away.
We had dinner just the two of us,
We conversed over candlelit crème brulee.

But lying on linoleum
Just feels right
After all those formalities
I put us through sometimes.

And when the conversation fades
Down to a lullaby hum
It’s those words we left unspoken
That I still taste on the tongue.

With every kiss, a word on it
I probably meant to say.

Cuz when you just can’t say it all
Confined inside syllabic walls,
When definitions make it worse
Let us converse with wordless words. 

Words are like formalities,
They’re cumbersome and unclear.
But you can kiss
The unspoken right into my ear.
Kissing on the kitchen floor.

With every kiss, a word on it
You probably meant to say. 

Cuz when you just can’t say it all
Confined inside syllabic walls,
When definitions make it worse
Let us converse with wordless words.

Cuz when you just can’t say it all
Confined inside syllabic walls,
When definitions make it worse
Let us converse with wordless words.
