Who Profits?

Words & Music by Ren Michael I need a good friend Who goes on more than instinct Though when you show me the source Don’t pretend not to blink You claim to report But now you tell me what to think I’m over it man I’m here the brink I’ll see you at home I’ll …

The Wake Up

Ren Michael - Logo - Initials

Only Love For me there is only the road. Sometimes I think it's the only real home for me listening to good music and digging every new place I see and all the old places too with the sun in my eyes and above me the moon and the stars. It's a real sweet spot, …

catching up

Well friends it’s been a busy year. I’ve been trying to write my book, and fortunately I’ve been able to do more than just try.  I've actually finished my first manuscript.  Yea man, in between the extremes of do or do not, I've opted for the positive. Yoda would be happy. The songs are coming …

He Ain’t Me

the city's alive you best believe you can look into its eyes you can feel it breathe city of night, so open and lonesome the quiet scream I'm still waking from the long strung-out dreams you see once again I’s tricked just like I said I's bamboozled in the moonlight, as she’d met some other …

When you've lost your sense of direction, along with sense of self, neither way …

Tonight I Roam

Oh moon Home to seven trembling faces Nameless, blank expressions Your face, the friendliest I’ve known Oh moon Home to my heart and soul Your soft glow Carries me ‘cross the night Though I tremble by thy naked hand Oh moon Stranger to the angels and to blues sparrows flying like arrows in silhouette across …

Girl I’m Your Boy

funny now that I should think of you snapshots and postcards I’ve moved through (I’ve broken on through) the long dusk the new dawn the stillness consumes me though I can’t complain much at all In my hand, still is a rose I never let go this desert is dry but I’m back on the …

I’m Gone

Riding in the night the desert stretches eons of time towns faraway ‘nother time and place I’ve got to keep moving, can’t look back she’ll call my name but I’ve got nothing left to say as I ride that Italian melodic plane, from the Tuscan countryside to faraway Spain and she’ll call my name and …
