The Truth About Me and You

When you learned the truth about me
Did you see what you thought I’d be
Did you have feelings inside
That you wouldn’t hide
Did you analyze what you could only see

When you learned the truth about you
Did your heart tell you it already knew
Did you really come clean
How you’ve been so mean
Did you recognize what we’ve been through

It’s unrelenting and unreal
What we do and how we feel
And there’s not much that can be done
When you can’t tell me how you are
On the beach, at home or in our car
You never know, it could be fun
More fun than keeping secrets
And telling it all to your close friends
Deeper than anything we’ll ever do
And oh, that’s the truth
Oh you know it’s the truth
That’s the truth about me and you

When you learned the truth about us
Did you ponder about it all, because
I thought about it night after night
How something could remain right
After all the wrong it always was

It’s unrelenting and unreal
What we do and how we feel
And there’s not much that can be done
When you can’t tell me how you are
On the couch, in bed or from afar
You never know, it could be fun
More fun than keeping secrets
And telling it all to your close friends
Deeper than anything we’ll ever do
And oh, that’s the truth
Oh you know it’s the truth
That’s the truth about me and you

The lies, the hurt, the pain
Disappear and come back again
They don’t stop and I am confused
If it’s my soul feeling out of control
And only the half of a whole
That doesn’t see we’re both abused

It’s unrelenting and unreal
What we do and how we feel
And there’s not much that can be done
When you can’t tell me how you are
On the beach, at home or in our car
You never know, it could be fun
More fun than keeping secrets
And telling it all to your close friends
Deeper than anything we’ll ever do
And oh, that’s the truth
Oh you know it’s the truth
That’s the truth about me and you
That’s the truth about me and you

That’s the truth about me and you.

Back to Seascape

Remember when we took a holiday
Up the coast so you and I could play
And lay down on a blanket you bought
In a small town whose name I forgot

You wore a one piece under a cotton dress
I didn’t have a need for any more or less
My back got burned but you got a tan
You said you loved that I was your man

So take me back
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back to Seascape
So we could be in love again
Take me back to Seascape
So we could be in love again

I was happier when you held me there
I would run my fingers through your hair
And we didn’t have much else to do
You cared for me, I deeply adored you

You wore a one piece under a cotton dress
I had no need for anything more or less
Your heart was open and so was mine
As we shared a bottle of raspberry wine

So take me back
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back to Seascape
So we could be in love again
Take me back to Seascape
So we could be in love again

I cannot forget our passionate past
Dear, I cannot forget those days
When you and I took a break
Before you said I was a mistake

You wore a one piece under a cotton dress
I didn’t have a need for any more or less
My back got burned but you got a tan
You said you loved that I was your man

So take me back
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back to Seascape
So we could be in love again
Take me back to Seascape
So we could be in love again

Betty

They sold her a story
Told her she'd go far
She was a looker & a beauty
and she was gonna be a star

They didn't have to polish her
She had natural charm & poise
Other girls wanted to be like her
She was attractive to all of the boys

Oh, but Betty was lonely
No one knew how she felt inside
She was looking for answers
in everything she tried
Acting, Modeling, all of the Men
Nothing could quench her thirst
Oh, Betty was lonely
with a heart so big it burst

In the public eye she shined
But privately she was a mess
At all those red carpet premieres
They just cared about Betty's dress

She had no idea who she was
Everyone close told her what to do
One night at her home in the Hills
Betty broke down and no one knew

Oh, how Betty was lonely
In that mansion with no pride
The media had so many questions
But behind her smile, she'd hide
Nobody knew her struggle
Nobody knew Betty's inner pain
Not even those who loved her
They thought they'd see her again

They found Betty years later
In a roadside diner in the Midwest
She became a small town waitress
Betty was happy in a regular dress

She said she could live without
the glory, attention and fame
with a quiet, normal life
and her maiden name

And now Betty's not lonely
serving up malts and fries
If people ask her about her past
She simply says she got wise
She knew she'd never be happy there
Being someone she didn't want to be
Some people just are meant for
living with dignity and privacy
and that's Betty, that's Betty, that's Betty.

He Doesn’t Know

If you believe leaving me with him
Will solve your problems, think again
I drink like a guppy but he’s a shark
He smelled your blood and he went all in

He saw your brand name clothes and
That flashy sports car you drive
You poor cash, poor preppy girl
Sweetie, he’s gonna eat you up alive

He doesn’t know you don’t have the coin
He doesn’t know the club he can’t join
He doesn’t know I’m the bread maker
I know he’s a con artist and a taker

What the hell did you tell him anyway
I wish I could sit down with him and say
You’ll leave him like you are leaving me
Don’t men ever learn from telling historys

He doesn’t know you don’t have the coin
He doesn’t know the club, he can’t join
He doesn’t know I’m the real bread maker
And you’re a con artist, a ruthless taker

Good luck sweetheart I wish you the best
I’m sorry I failed your sneaky little test
I’m not sorry for spending money on you
How could I know there’s little I could do

He doesn’t know you don’t own anything
Or that’s really a cubic zirconia ring
He doesn’t I’m the real bread maker
And you’re a cheat, a liar and a faker

But I’d do it all over again
I’d be with you again
Yeah, I’d do it all over again
Just come stay with me again
Just come be with me again
Just come be with me again
Come be with me again

Come be with me again

She Cowgirl’s Hard

I’m the kind of guy who grew up in my room
Readin’ ‘bout life out on the golden prairie
My classmates, they said I was too sensitive
They called me weak and a flamin’ fairy

I was learnin’ violin by the age of nine
I was cookin’ and cleanin’ earlier than that
Mom said she was preparin’ me to be a man
Not an ego filled child with a wide brim hat

While the guys were playin’ little league
I was with her as she got her nails done
No, I never learned to rope and ride
I wasn’t allowed to shoot a rifle or gun

Soon enough, I turned seventeen
I met someone sweet who cared about me
She was a wild one who loved horses
She wanted a farm and to raise a family

She cowgirled hard, she liked it rough
She wanted it fast and couldn’t get enough
Hey, I didn’t mind, how I needed her so
She cowgirled hard, I’ll never let her go

We got married in a white country church
We raised our babies, they’re fully grown
And as long as we have one another
She and I will never feel like we’re alone

While she’s out workin’ in that red barn
I’m keepin’ house and preparin’ her meal
And when each day is over and done with
We know what we have is true and real

Oh,

She cowgirl’s hard, she likes it rough
She wants it fast and can’t get enough
Hey, I don’t mind, how I love her so
She cowgirl’s hard, I’ll never let her go

Solos

Oh,

She cowgirl’s hard, she likes it rough
She wants it fast and can’t get enough
Hey, I don’t mind, how I love her so
She cowgirl’s hard, I’ll never let her go

She cowgirl’s hard, I’ll never let her go

Healing The Hurt Inside

If you see her walking along the beach
Watching the ocean as it smoothly sways
And wondering what's going on with her
She's sorting out memories of those days

When she held that boy so tightly
When they'd feel so free outside
When the answer to their problems
Was in a Harley Davidson ride
Wondering if she'll ever see him again
She's knowing it might take a while
She's healing the hurt inside of her
and she could use a friendly smile

If you feel like it quietly approach her
She'll see you as a pleasant surprise
Just be naturally the person you are
As you gently look into her eyes
And she'll often look away from you
but she'll welcome your kind soul
Know she'll still be thinking of him
and when he played that leading role

When she held that boy so tightly
When they'd feel so free outside
When the answer to their problems
Was in a Harley Davidson ride
Wondering if she'll ever see him again
or if he'll write letters, maybe call
She may be healing the hurt inside of her
But you could end up being her windfall

You could end up being her windfall

May You Prosper Greatly

For Grace Marie and Annie Jean

As you walk along the shoreline
As you hear the crashing waves
As you do your due diligence
As you explore your inner caves

May you prosper greatly
May you be blessed by your breaks
May you live the life you wanted
May you swim in oceans and lakes
May you survive all your battles
May you heal, may you grow
Oh, may you prosper greatly
May you learn from what you didn't know

As you feel something in you kicking
As you see light in clouds of doom
As you chase that elusive angel
As you're sleeping deeply in your room

May you prosper greatly
May you dream your fantasies
May you awaken with passion
May you solve those mysteries
May you understand your purpose
May you always do what's right
Oh, may you prosper greatly
As a beacon to others may you be bright

Loving Kindness

The gift that keeps on giving
The one that delights me so
The one that fills me up inside
I have it in me wherever I go

Even when we’re far apart
You might laugh but it’s true
The gift that keeps on giving
Is loving kindness from you

The gift that keeps on giving
Is loving kindness from you
It’s in the heart that gives it away
Its important to honestly do

So when you wonder what to give
Someone who has everything
Well, the gift they’ll treasure most
Isn’t that Pearl Necklace,
Sterling Silver, or Tiffany ring
Once they’re no longer new
The gift that keeps on giving
Is loving kindness from you

What this world needs so much
Is loving kindness from you

It’s loving kindness from you
It’s loving kindness from you
It’s loving kindness from you

Friends Live On In You

Tonight we’re like the teens we were
years after we faced our fears
All sitting around at this reunion
Laughing and in our eyes are tears

There’s no one out to get us now
There’s nobody we can blame
For how our lives all turned out
At least nothing stayed the same

I look back on those days knowing
We all made it through in one piece
We got through the rites of passage
Our squeaky wheels got the grease
And it feels so good to be here
It’s like no time has passed, it’s true
You can move away from everyone
But your old friends live on in you

Memories are still inside of me
Of life here in our little big town
I remember how Patty beamed as she
got her Football Homecoming crown

All the fun we had just hanging out
Eating our burgers & chicken strips
I’ll always remember how it felt
That kiss from my first girl’s lips

I look back on those days knowing
We all made it through in one piece
We got through the rites of passage
Our squeaky wheels got the grease
And it feels so good to be here
It’s like no time has passed, it’s true
You can move away from everyone
But your old friends live on in you

There are ones who couldn’t be here
But that’s OK, they’re safe and well
They’ll stay alive in all the stories
That we’ll always think of and tell

It feels so good to be with you all
It’s like no time has passed, it’s true
You can move away from everyone
But your old friends live in you

Oh, you can move away from everyone
But your old friends live on in you.
