    One of Those Nights John Cirillo (ASCAP) IPI# 334682653 /Chip Martin (BMI) IPI# 353031796 Honey, let me tell you how great it is to be home I thought this day was never gonna end Someone’s been messing with my mojo all day long I’d love to know who let the devil in The only thing that saved me from jumping off a bridge Was knowing you were waiting with your love me tender kiss Chorus: It’s been one of those days And it’s all that I can do To keep this train wreck on the tracks Till I got home to you But everything is looking bright Since you turned off the lights It’s been one of those days And, Honey, I sure could use One of those nights The boss’s lips were moving but I didn’t hear a word I was busy fantasizing ‘bout you Your dress falls off your shoulders; your fingers grab my shirt Now it’s time to make my fantasies come true The way you wrap yourself around me with that hunger in your eye Well, I know I had a bad day but I can’t remember why Repeat Chorus Bridge: A night we get all tangled up in satin Lost in your Victoria Secret smile When every move you make becomes my favorite distraction And I forget for a little while (that) Repeat Chorus © 2012 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161

I don’t know who hurt you And put the red in those green eyes (But) Chorus: You look pretty in blue Under the glow of a neon night I know that look and I think I might Know what you’re going through Girl, I’ve been there too If you don’t mind me saying so I just had to let you know You sure look pretty in blue If you feel like talking I’d love to sit with you a while Has anybody told you You’ve got the sweetest saddest smile Bridge: Don’t worry about your make up Sometimes tears are gotta fall If you need a shoulder I don’t mind at all © 2016 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161

    Soul Of The Heartland John Cirillo(ASCAP)/Sarah Spencer (ASCAP)/Tori Martin (BMI) VERSE: You’ve got 6 generations Wild West blood Running through your veins, mixed in the mud And there’s a wind swept pride Won’t be denied You can feel it in your bones Wheat fields and cattle far as the eye can see All the dreams you work for they don’t come easily But you’re right where you belong What makes you strong That heaven you call home CHORUS: In the soul of the heartland You know this is good land Never far away from a helping calloused hand And if we can’t, we know Jesus can Save the soul of the heartland VERSE: Some kids head to California and leave their boots behind But some get up every mornin’, keep this way of life from dyin’ There’s faith and hope Down every dusty road One rainfall at a time CHORUS BRIDGE: When you look across the sky And you see what you’ve been givin’ This sacred ground beneath your feet And you’re thankful that you’re livin’...

    What Would Dolly Do John Cirillo (ASCAP)/ Tori Martin (BMI)/ Sarah Spencer (ASCAP) My town called me crazy when I changed my zip code And there’s always somebody judgin’ my wardrobe I’ve been taking the high road As far as it can go And I’m through Got my foot on the brake, can’t seem to drive past these doubts And my hands on the wheel, bout to turn this car around When I heard 9 to 5 playin’ on the radio And I knew, She was speaking right to me What would Dolly do? If she were in my shoes, Would she turn my big dreams Into dreams comin’ true? Share all her secrets, covered in sequins, Her magic is something I could use, Oh tell me what would Dolly do? Wonder if she ever felt the way I’m feeling now Like I’ve written my last song and no one cares anyhow How did she keep on believing? And breakthrough that glass ceiling I’m looking at If she was here you know I’d ask Repeat Chorus: Bridge: Maybe she’d say fake it till you make it Make a promise and don’t break it Let the wind lift you up like a butterfly You’re gonna cry, you’re gonna hurt When it’s you against the world Dress all your fears in rhinestones and curls Don’t you ever give up girl Repeat Chorus Tag: Dolly, I will always love you © 2019 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161

    Hanging By A Thread John Cirillo (ASCAP) IPI# 334682653 Dan O’Rourke (BMI) IPI# 799302400 Verse: There’s a tapestry that hangs behind the window Of the brownstone house that survived the civil war Of a chestnut tree bloomin’ in the spring time Catchin all the rain from a chilly April storm PreChorus: The people as they pass Press their face against the glass For the woven thing of beauty on the wall Chorus: But what no one knows, And what no one see’s The trouble of this picture perfect scene The stitches frayed It’s about to break From all the years of hardship and neglect Just like you and me, it’s hangin’ by a thread Verse 2- Beneath that tree you’ll see the two lovers Holding on, safe from an angry sky You can see the lightning, almost hear the thunder And you wonder if the needle missed the tears in their eyes Bridge- All our friends see what we want them to see But when you pull back the curtain We’re just two people hurtin But what no one knows, And what no one see’s The trouble of this picture perfect scene Two hearts frayed, we’re about to break From all our years of hard ship and neglect Just you and me - hangin by a thread © 2016 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161

    Heart Runs Dry Sydney St George (BMI)/Sarah Spencer (ASCAP)/John Cirillo (ASCAP) I’ve given you everything I had All I’d stored up inside Threw every word off my tongue To an empty, careless sky I poured out my soul Into a bottomless well, Trade pennies for my thoughts And the secrets that I tell And it all feels like This train’s running off the tracks I’m watching thunderclouds collide The moon and the sun cross paths And I can’t control the tides I’m thirsting for your love While the hunger in you dies I’m here sitting with the silence, As my heart runs dry All the lonely 2 am’s And the losing track of time the phone that never rings And the words refuse to rhyme All the talks with my mother About where I go from here And she’s running out answers, And I’m running out of years This train’s running off the tracks I’m watching thunderclouds collide The moon and the sun cross paths And I can’t control the tides I’m thirsting for your love While the hunger in you dies I’m here sitting with the silence, As my heart runs dry © 2018 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161

    Brother I Will John Cirillo (ASCAP)/Sam Gyllenhaal (BMI) This might be the midnight talking But I’m gonna say what don’t need saying I got your back when it’s up against the wall You pull me up every time I fall What we got runs deeper than blood Chorus: Tell me, brother, when your world gets heavy So I can carry some of that weight It don’t matter when or where, I’m ready And I know you’d do the same If you need me to walk through the fire with you, I will Brother you know I will We all got our different roads to travel Sometimes they’re paved, sometimes they’re gravel I’ll be shotgun riding when the miles get lonely Anytime, my friend, just call me Don’t matter how far you’re going, you know I’m in You know I’m in © 2019 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161

    If You Cheat John Cirillo (ASCAP)/ Dan Reifsnyder (ASCAP)/ Sarah Spencer (ASCAP) He was driving somewhere ‘tween Gallup and Winslow On an old stretch of route 66 At the end of his rope, looking for hope But he found this ol’ bar here instead The neon was dusty; door hinges rusty On the window a hand written sign Between the Pabst and the Coors, and the two swinging doors Faded words, but he read it just fine Chorus: If you cheat, hope its death that you're cheating, If you lie, lie with someone you love, If you fight, do it for the right reasons, If you drink, then come drink one with us The whole place was packed; waitress waved him on back Set him up on the last stool She said, man, I can tell you been going through hell Well, we’ve all come out of there too And we live by our own golden rule If you cheat, hope its death that you're cheating, If you lie, lie with someone you love, If you fight, do it for the right reasons, If you drink, then come drink one with us Bridge: All we can do is the best that we can Cuz we’re all sinners, forgivers, and friends If you cheat, hope its death that you're cheating, If you lie, lie with someone you love, If you fight, do it for the right reasons, If you drink, then come drink one with us © 2017 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161

    WIlder John Cirillo (ASCAP)/Justin Love (BMI)/Troy Castellano (SESAC) She’s a twister searching for a trailer park Kerosene dying for a little spark An arrow aiming for a beating heart She’s an alibi looking for a 3 am Stiletto heels with a wicked grin And when you bet on her you better go all in She is who she is and she’s what I want She’s danger like a sinner on Sunday Crazier than a rodeo queen Can’t tame her, mustang running Everything I want her to be Yeah she’s freer than a Montana skyline Long hair blowing on a midnight ride The best way I found to describe her She’s wilder She’s a sweet dream wrapped in a double dare An exit sign saying, “anywhere” The way she loves, man, it just ain’t fair She’s a book that don’t seem to match the cover Soft as rain and hard as thunder No one knows her like I know her... Let me tell you brother Yeah, she is who she is and she’s all I want Chorus © 2020 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161

    Stars Don’t Lie John Cirillo/Sarah Spencer/Tamara Laurel The moon might try To change the tide But it won’t pull us apart And the sun she knows No matter how she glows She can’t outshine our hearts In a galaxy of a billion lights It just takes two to get it right The stars don’t lie When they align It’s you and I On this perfect night Ain’t it funny how It all worked out Beyond our wildest dreams And the magic lives On every kiss Between you and me In a galaxy of a billion lights It just took two to get it right The stars don’t lie When they align It’s you and I On this perfect night In a galaxy of a billion lights It just takes two to get it right / What are the odds we’d find The stars don’t lie When they align It’s you and I On this perfect night © 2021 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161
