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

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

To Keep You In My Life

Verse 1
A girl like you is hard to find
Appealing to my eyes & mind
You make want to be a better man
So my honey, I'll do what I can

Chorus
To keep you in my life
I’ll work harder than a bodybuilder in a gym
If you need the kind of guy
Who’ll treat you like a princess then I’ll be him
I’ll bring you coffee in bed
I’ll make your breakfast & cater to every whim
I’ll rub your feet and head
I’ll brush your knotted hair, I’ll go out on a limb

Verse 2
A girl like you is hard to keep
You’re off & running when I’m asleep
You make me want to do almost anything
You make me want to buy you a ring

Chorus
To keep you in my life
I’ll work harder than a bodybuilder in a gym
If you need the kind of guy
Who’ll treat you like a princess then I’ll be him
I’ll bring you coffee in bed
I’ll make your breakfast & cater to every whim
I’ll rub your feet and head
I’ll brush your knotted hair, I’ll go out on a limb

Bridge
I’m enamored by your lips
I’m obsessed with all that you are
I’m like the paparazzi
To you, the major motion picture star
I’ll be the guy who you can take home to Dad
I’ll be the Prince you always wished you had

Solos

Chorus
To keep you in my life
I’ll work harder than a bodybuilder in a gym
If you need the kind of guy
Who’ll treat you like a princess then I’ll be him
I’ll bring you coffee in bed
I’ll make your breakfast & cater to every whim
I’ll rub your feet and head
I’ll brush your knotted hair, I’ll go out on a limb

Tag
To keep you in my life
To keep you in my life
To have you be my wife
So you’ll stay in my life

Country Club Members

When I met her, I didn’t think I’d end up
being her boyfriend in the wings
She didn’t tell me she was married
She wasn’t wearing her wedding rings

It was out at the tennis courts
we were on a mixed doubles team
She had the scent of wild blueberries
It was like she stepped out of a dream

And boy, did I fall for her
We’d talk about everything
She listened to me
I listened to her
Thinking we’d end up to be
together for the rest of our life
I’d be her heroic husband
and she’d be my dreamy wife
as Country Club members
making bank like they all do
Then something happened
I got an urgent call from you

You knew her and her husband Jim
Turns out you were a mutual friend
I stood there while on my phone
And all I could do was think of when

We sat there in the sun getting lunch
And no one there said a damn word
Man, did I feel so hurt and taken
Man, did I feel like a big ol’ turd

Wow, did I fall for her
We’d talk about everything
She listened to me
I listened to her
Thinking we’d end up to be
together for the rest of our years
I’d be her heroic husband
through all our trials and tears
as Country Club members
like my parents and hers, too
You said you were with him
and found out he already knew

So I had a sit down with her at the club
We had a “Define the Relationship” talk
Then we kissed after it was all over
and went down to the beach for a walk

Boy, did I fall all over again
They didn’t have what we had
She was counting on me
I was counting on her
Planning out what we’d end up to be
Together for the rest of our life
I’d be her heroic husband
and she’d be my forgiven wife
as Country Club members
like my parents and hers, too
And you, Jim and her and I
could end up in love that’s true

Oh yes you, Jim and her and I
could end up in a love that’s true

Prove You Wrong

You don’t think I really love you
You think I’ve one foot out the door
You don’t think I really love you
You think I think you’re a bore

But I gotta say
Oh I gotta say
I bet I could prove you wrong
Yeah I’m gonna stay
Oh I’m gonna stay
That’s why I wrote you this song
In my heart you’ll still belong
I bet I could prove you wrong

You don’t see yourself with me
After all is said and done
You think I’ll meet somebody else
Who I’ll also tell she’s the one

But I gotta say
Oh I gotta say
I bet I could prove you wrong
Yeah I’m gonna stay
Oh I’m gonna stay
That’s why I wrote you this song
In my heart you’ll still belong
I bet I could prove you wrong

You can keep playing hard to get
But I will never give up on you
Yet you keep telling me I can’t
I can’t make your dreams come true

But I gotta say
Oh I gotta say
I bet I could prove you wrong
Yeah I’m gonna stay
Oh I’m gonna stay
That’s why I wrote you this song
In my heart you’ll still belong
I bet I could prove you wrong
I bet I could prove you wrong

I bet I could prove you wrong

She Knows How

She does the dishes
She folds the clothes
She manages the home
Dinner delights my nose
Oh, it’s plain to see
She knows how
To get a rise out of me

She picks up the kids
And doesn’t complain
She cuddles close
When it starts to rain
Oh, it’s meant to be
She knows how
To get a rise out of me

She loves her Mama
She loves her Daddy
When I’m in the rough
She’s my caddy
And she grabs my club
And tells me to
Put it in the hole
And I do, Hell yeah, I do…

When I’ve had enough
She brings me a beer
And she whispers softly
In my eager ear
Soon enough,
I’m flying free…
How does she know
How to get a rise out of me?

She sure knows how
To get a rise out of me

She Almost Had Me There

She met me through my father
He mentioned I liked jazz bands, too
So she got in touch with me one day
Going out seemed like the thing to do

We went to see Wally and his band
We took a day trip down to Santa Cruz
Hit the coasters, ate some corn dogs
Love seemed effortless to choose

She almost had me there
She almost tugged me closer to her chest
She almost could have been my girl now
Oh how I thought she’d stay the best
My friends were surprised and I was too
We dated longer than other girls they knew
When she said it was over, truth is I cared
Cause she almost had me there

I took her to a couple weddings
Of good friends of mine back then
I had been thinking of getting serious
It really was just a matter of when

We shared incredible chemistry
We bought each other cute little rings
To remind us of the love we shared
And we got each other things

Yeah she almost had me there
She almost tugged me closer to her chest
She almost could have been my girl now
Oh how I thought she’d stay the best
My friends were surprised and I was too
We dated longer than other girls they knew
When she said it was over, truth is I cared
Cause she almost had me there

We almost could have done it
Sealing the deal just wasn’t in the deck
And when I drove home after the breakup
I was an absolute fucking wreck

I was listening to a tape by Matthew Sweet
Singing about some fictional romance
I remembered when we saw Indigo Swing
She kissed me sweetly during that dance

Yeah she almost had me there
She almost tugged me closer to her chest
She almost could have been my girl now
Oh how I thought she’d stay the best
My friends were surprised and I was too
We dated longer than other girls they knew
When she said it was over, truth is I cared
Cause she almost had me there

Yeah she almost had me there
Yeah she almost had me there
Oh, she almost had me there
Yeah she almost had me there

If You Walk Away

If you walk away
Don’t expect me to chase after you
Don’t expect me to fight for a dream
Deep in your heart won’t come true

If you walk away
Don’t think I’m gonna negotiate
I’m gonna trust the hands of fate
And know that deeply, you knew

It was time for you to go
It was time for you decide
To show me what you felt inside
You had to swallow your pride
Know it’s the right thing to do
It was time for you to make
A break for it away from me
So you could finally be free
Cause I was makin’ you so blue
And if you walk away, walk away
Cause I’d do the same thing, too

If you walk away
Pack up and leave my things
You can keep all those rings
I gave you on your special days

If you walk away
Don’t look back, you’ll be surprised
Tears won’t be falling from my eyes
My blood pressure won’t be raised

I’ll know it was time for you to go
It was time you stood up to me
Rather than tolerate my b.s.
This ain’t what love is meant to be
Just move on, protect yourself
Leave me alone and do it fast
If you think this isn’t gonna last
Cause baby, we’d be happier apart
So if you walk away, walk away
Know you won’t be breaking my heart

Oh no… Babe I love you,
but you won’t be breaking my heart

Here’s the Good Part

Things have been shaping up
Things are really great now
Better than a year ago
I got out of the cellar somehow
It was right around the the time
When you ghosted me
And I figured out for myself
We were no baffling mystery

And here’s the good part
The part when I didn’t cry
When knew I’d move on
Cause it was all a lie
Yeah here’s the good part
You didn’t break my heart
You hit the road, really showed
Me what we couldn’t be
And here’s the good part
I don’t mind being single and free

I bought a mountain bike
And a bunch of sportswear
I started an Insta account
And posted my selfies there
I got my first batch of likes
It felt so great to just create
And nurture my yearning soul
With solid habits & better state

And here’s the good part
I fell in love with life again
I didn’t get sad and hide
Thinkin’ about way back when
And here’s the good part
It was an honest gift from you
It was the right thing to do
The catch & release,
you’re no missing piece
What we had wasn’t true
And here’s the good part
Instead of falling apart, I grew

That’s the good part
That’s the good part
Yeah that’s the good part
Instead of falling apart
I grew, I grew
and I hope you did, too
Oh, I hope, I hope
and pray you did too.
