Working on a new song, here are the lyrics to “Leave Me Alone”,

Leave Me Alone                             K. Barr

 

Well I ain’t good lookin,

But I’m still kinda proud,

Listen to my music,

When the music is loud,

Don’t want no commotion,

I ain’t the boy next door,

Never gonna quit this,

When I still want more.

 

You might think I’m lazy,

Your parents think I’m crazy,

Wishing I would go away,

So believe me when I say

 

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

 

 

Well now I’m incognito,

Just a face in the crowd,

Laying on a cold slab,

Covered with my shroud,

Staring at the moon,

Through a rusty door,

Waiting for the day,

That I rise once more.

 

 

You might think I’m lazy,

Your parents think I’m crazy,

Wishing I would go away,

So believe me when I say

 

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

 

-SOLO-

 

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

I have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise the funds needed to hire an illustrator to illustrate “The Lost Yule Lads”. The Lost Lads have been around a long time but I can’t find any images of them, so we are starting at the very beginning. As I did with “The Icelandic Yule Lads”, I will be doing book signings for charity around the holidays. I’ll include a link, please spread the word, Thanks

My newest book, “Thirty-Three Wednesdays” is finally complete and will be available soon. Please stay tuned for updates !!

Here is an excerpt :

Introduction

 Love can be a confusing thing, an elusive thing to chase. And finding it, and having all the factors line up. Maybe you meet right after one of you gets married, or decides to take a job cross country. So not only are we looking for true love, but we have to time it right or it won’t work.

 That’s where this story begins, by finding true love. No the factors did not line up. I had missed my window by a little bit. But I was determined. I would never give up on love, not even if it took years. This wasn’t something I set out to do, fall in love with someone so far away that, whether or not she was happy, Janelle was not available. There was family to consider and other road blocks I was never privy to. But all I knew was that I was feeling true love for the first time in my life, so yes, I kept the blinders on.

 So what you hold here is the tale of something special.

 Why 33 Wednesdays you ask? The end came on a Wednesday, and as we had never gone long without talking, I started counting the weeks every Wednesday as things progressed. Finally, at 33 weeks I stopped counting.

 That being said I think it’s time to put a few things out there. The first is that I will own all of this, all the mistakes and hurt. I could have left at any time, but I chose to stay in it and keep trying. I’ll also own the fact that I have issues that contributed to all this. I’m a fixer by nature, so the harder things got the harder I tried. It’s not in my nature to walk away.

It’s up to me whether I stay or leave; I can’t blame anyone other than myself. No one can hurt me unless I let them, period.
