I wanna always keep falling in love.
It's a risky way to live.
But here I go again...this video...documents the first public performance of a song that has been one of my innermost anthems for nearly two years now. I've been re-writing it in my head, testing out scenarios of what new life and new love could be like. But as my mentor, Horace Beasley, says, "Love isn't love until you give it away." Thanks to the generous audience of thoughtful/creative/heartful writer folk up in the BX for making this debut meaningful. It was performed at the Bronx Community College Writing Center Poet's Cafe (open mic), made possible by the initiative of Prof. Janet Robertson, Director.

There I go Again
copyright Marcos de Jesús 2017
One look from you and I’m shot through, your eyes pe- ne-trate me.
I’m down for the count in the mind-game, knocked out, ru-mi-nating:
Did she mean to look at me? Was it meaningful? Was she just lost in thought?
Did she just look at my socks? What can she see in these jeans? I just want her to see
What I could see between me and her, I wish I could tell her.
‘I just love spending time with you.
And finding ways to be kind to you.
I may not have what you need in a man
I’m not asking can I be…
I’m not asking to be…
I’m not asking can I be your man.
But, there I go ag-ain-
Thinking about for-ever!
‘Cause I seem to catch sight of your soul
In private passions passing over your face.
There I go ag-ain! Encan-tado, volando
Charmed, dis-armed and En-chanted by your smile.
But, I’m afraid to fly from now to for-ever in your eyes ‘cause then I may never.
Learn to be al-right with where I stand right now. And then
a-gain, me encuentro o-ran-do.
How can I take her where she sends me
In Mo-ments of
Every day grace.
I’m living for these mo- ments …
Everyday mo-ments of quiet grace.
Moments of every day grace.
For now that’s all I can take.
‘Cause I’m too heart broken to really have the heart for dating.
If I were smart, I’d stick to my smart phone,
Swipe right and left like an art form,
En Espa- ñol
the verb that means “hoping”
Can also describe the act of
There I go a-gain
2da voz Sonando en ti
Orando que tu
Te pudieras sentir
lo que siento yo.
But, I’m afraid to fl-y.
Tan pobre que soy
no te puedo ofrecer
que es-te sue-no de amor
I don't wanna “make believe”
But, I be-lieve, in love
There I go again.
2da voz Some dreams are better than the real thing.
There I go again.
Some things are not meant to be.
There I go again!
