Please Come Again

You were in the neighborhood
So you thought you’d ring my bell
You tried to call earlier
But I’ve been going through Hell
The house is a wreck
Or I’d invite you inside
Please come again
Hey, thanks for stopping by

I know it’s been some time now
Since we sat down to talk
I don’t remember when
We last went for a ride or walk
I’ve had a few drinks
And swallowed some pride
Please come again
Hey, thanks for stopping by

It’s not like me to turn you away
I’m sorry if I’m being rude
My heart is hurting, I can’t describe
why I feel so sad and screwed

I’ll call you in a couple days ok
I just have to sort this all out
Thanks for your understanding
It’s what you’re all about
We’ll go get some coffee
When my eyes have dried
Please come again
Hey, thanks for stopping by

Please come again
Hey, thanks for stopping by

Capitola

My toes are burning
It must have been the sand
When we were walking on the beach
And I was holding your sweet hand
I remember it all
The love we used to make
When you and I were younger then
I loved the tasty scones you’d bake

Now I sit here
In this wheelchair
And wonder if
I’m gonna die alone

I wanna come back to Capitola
So we can start all over
So we can do it again
Stroll in the village
Get some Pizza my Heart
Ice Cream to cool our lips
We swore we wouldn’t break apart
But most of all, I wanna come back
Come back to Capitola
Good ol’ Capitola
‘Cause then I’d be where you are

My heart is hurting
I miss your smiling eyes
Behind those hipster Ray Bans
You were a bombshell and so wise
I remember it all
The memories we made
And admiring the paintings
We almost bought by Thomas Kincade

Now I wait here
For my ride home
And I pay daily
That I don’t die alone

I wanna come back to Capitola
So we can start all over
So we can do it again
Stroll in the village
Get some Pizza my Heart
Ice Cream to cool our lips
We swore we wouldn’t break apart
But most of all, I wanna come back
Come back to Capitola
Good ol’ Capitola
‘Cause then I’d be where you are
I’d be where you are

While I Was Waiting

I thought about us
And all we’ve been through
And I found myself on a beach
Watching waves was all I could do
To keep from cussing out the stars
Cause I wasn’t sure you knew
I was all ready to apologize
While I was waiting there for you

I thought about us
And all the memories we shared
I saw a tiny dog in a girl’s arms
It looked so cold and scared
And I remembered the moment
I saw you sleeping in my car
After a night of heavy drinking
I couldn’t drive home from the bar

So we stayed there all night
We shared a blanket from the trunk
The next morning we got breakfast
And cause really bad, we stunk
I took you to your parents house
You took a steaming bath all alone
While I waited in your bedroom
And I saw a message on your phone

I thought about you
You had a right to be so upset
I invaded your private life that day
Then felt so much consuming regret
Then I saw you from a distance
You pulled up in your Pink VW bug
I was gonna say I was so so sorry
It turned out you had tried a drug

So we stayed there all night
Shared an afghan in the backseat
The next morning we got breakfast
Then I took you to your street
Cops were at your parents house
They had some unfortunate news
I chose to stop drinking forever
While I was waiting there for you

I chose to stop drinking forever
While I was waiting there for you

Obsessed With Kelly

I’m obsessed with Kelly
I can’t get her out of my head
I’m obsessed with Kelly
She’s probably home in her bed
Cause she’s not at this dance
I may not have any chance
But I’m obsessed with Kelly
And all those things she said

Like
She never wanted me
She never needed me
I was never on her mind
She never wanted me
She never needed me
She never could find
Herself attracted to me
I’m just a weirdo she knows
And if I ever ask her out
She won’t accept my rose

I’m obsessed with Kelly
But she’s dating another guy
I’m obsessed with Kelly
Man, I really don’t know why
Cause she’s always mean
She makes fun of my Zine
I’m obsessed with Kelly
Even though she makes me cry

Sayin’
She never wanted me
She never needed me
I was never on her mind
She never wanted me
She never needed me
She never could find
Herself attracted to me
I’m just a weirdo she knows
And if I ever ask her out
She won’t accept my rose

Maybe it’s true when they say
What we can’t have, we need
And I’m addicted to the pain
I keep thinkin’ I’ll succeed
In makin’ her mine
It’ll take some time
She’s so damn hard to read
But I’m obsessed with Kelly
The girl who’ll never love me

I’m obsessed with Kelly
The girl who’ll never love me
The girl who’ll never love me
The girl who’ll never love me

Meet-Cute

I used to be ungrateful
I wasn’t happy, I would yell
I expected others to see
Through the lies they’d tell

Then your eyes met mine
And straight away I knew
For the rest of my years
Right then
was our meet-cute
Right then
Was our meet-cute

You saw me for who I was
Underneath my shame
You saw my insecurities
You knew I played a game
Where I had all the answers
For everyone else but me
You knew deep in your heart
I wasn’t who I wanted to be

When your eyes met mine
And straight away you knew
For the rest of your years
Right then
was our meet-cute
Right then
Was our meet cute

Bridge:
I was colder than Alaska
I had icicles in my stare
You heated me with honesty
Just by being quietly there
My friends and family all
Gave up on me so fast
You gave me tender affection
Helped me get past my past

When your eyes met mine
It all came to me so clear
I had a vision of you and I
Overcoming our fears
For the rest of our years
We’d live our authentic truth
All because we had
A life changing meet-cute

Just Your Turn

You got to know my Mom and Dad
Then they brought him back into view
He had come home from the service
And he remembered kissing you

Back at a house party in the 80’s
It was a night he never forgot
I remember he came home that night
And said you were totally hot

But now you’re both older
So much older than before
You blazed through other guys
But his heart was broken and sore
You might think he really loves you
There’s a lesson you could learn
He might never be yours, no
This is just your turn
Oh, he might never be yours,
This is just your turn

Dad introduced you to her, bro
He once introduced a girl to me
She worked for him in Accounting
But she didn’t turn out to be

A one guy kind of woman
She shattered me one day in July
I found out my friend said to her
I was a one woman kind of guy

And now that we’re both older
So much older than before
She’s blazed through other men
My heart was broken and sore
I thought we had the real deal
But there’s a lesson I learned
I was never gonna be hers
It was just my turn
Oh, I was never gonna be hers
It was just my turn

So I see you now together
Holding hands and having fun
I don’t know if it will work out
One of you might cut and run

But I still must have faith in you
Maybe Dad opened an amazing door
Maybe you both deserve each other
God’s healing what was broken and sore
You’re both happy, that’s what matters
I hope you never have to learn
That you don’t belong with each other
And this is just your turn

Oh, I pray to heaven above,
For true love, it’s just your turn
Oh, I pray to heaven above,
For true love, it’s just your turn

Boys From Her Hometown

Verse 1:

When she met me I was wearin’ suits
coats, belts, shirts and silk ties
I dressed up to sell daily at my job
but it was a sudden surprise
After we got married, fancy got old
Keepin’ up with Joneses ain’t my style
I like my Dive Bar tees ‘n jeans
but that don’t make her smile

Chorus:

Cause I looked like all the boys
Oh, I’m like all those boys
All those rough ‘n rowdy boys
All those wild n’ crazy boys
The boys from her hometown

Verse 2:

When I asked her what was wrong
She said she missed the cleaner me
The one who’d buy nicer threads
Than guys who hang out at Denny’s
I said this is who I sincerely am
I’m no dandy, Ivy League or ritzy man
I’m an Aggie Blue Collar Country kid
Just doin’ the best I damned well can

Chorus:

But I look like all the boys
Oh, I act like all those boys
All those rough ‘n rowdy boys
All those wild n’ crazy boys
The boys from her hometown

Bridge:

Oh, she tried to avoid who they were
I think she just didn’t wanna get hurt
She’d likes me with a shaven face
Than one covered with scruff ‘n dirt
And I can’t help if I’m different than
My fancy brother with his luxury car
She’ll have to face the facts now
I love old cars and have a big heart

Verse 3:

She’s been disappointed and afraid
This is not the life she had in mind
She wishes we could go back to
When I was dressed up to the nines
Guess I’m not what she expected
But it should’ve been clear as day
I was much happier driving her around
In my cherry putt-putt Chevrolet

Chorus:

And looking like all the boys
Oh, I act like all those boys
All those rough ‘n rowdy boys
All those wild n’ crazy boys
The boys from my hometown

Who are all exactly like all
The boys from her hometown

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.

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.
