I write a lot of songs that other artists can relate to because they are about being an artist. They are about the frustrations, the highs and lows of being creative and trying to find a way to share what you do with others. Finding the time when you have to do other things to make a living, leaves not nearly enough time to follow your heart and play music.


The Band
By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) Copyright © 1977

Why can't I write a tune
I can't write a song
been trying for a couple of weeks now
and something's going wrong
Almost everything's going wrong

The blizzard of 77
has brought to Buffalo
lots more than white stuff
much more than you could know
I just wish I could go

I need the band
it helps me to survive
yes I need the band
just to stay alive
here I am between bands again
I think I'm gonna' cry
I think I'm gonna' cry

my bucks are down to zero
so is the degrees
even my house is very cold
I think I'm gonna' freeze
turn the heat up please

School is almost over
I really do not care
academic Bull Shit
I sit in classes and stare
I really do not care

Then it's all over
what shal I do next
hit the road or stay in town
or maybe take a rest
I guess I'll do my best

Hanging out in limbo
what a place to be
the world is caving in again
what will become of me
I'll have to wait and see
