    BACK

                                                         
                                                            

    Back (V1) Miller’s Hardware Store is now a parking lot Minute hand’s stuck on nine on the courthouse clock There's a Starbucks and a new strip mall In that field where I played pick up ball Being gone so long can make you miss it all (chorus) But I can go back, To a Honda hatchback Main street cruisin, old school tunes 'n You in the the front seat leaning way back That freedom breeze Bringing back sweet memories Time goes on and I can’t change that But I can go back (V2) Never thought that tobacco barn would be a place I’d miss But can’t forget us skipping school and our first kiss Spray painting our names on lover’s rock Drove by today it’s been white-washed Gotta move on whether I like it or not (Repeat Chorus) (Bridge) You always did look good in white He’s lottery lucky to call you his wife Glad I came for your big day Your dad’s not the only one who gave you away (Repeat Chorus)

    Couldn't Be First V1 I can see it in your eyes He really did it this time Ya wanna sink into the blue But that ain’t you No I can tell that girl I know, she aint gone She’s still shinin’ through CH It would’ve been beautiful to be your first But I ain’t second guessin Ain't even gonna count the times I fought my heart to keep a distance But I’ve watched long enough The girl I love gettin’ hurt No,ain’t mad about the past If good guys finish last I couldn't be first V2 You're just a shotgun trophy In his Chevrolet He's never cared about you Not like I do I'm praying It's just a ride, just some time you're takin' Leading us to the truth CH It would’ve been beautiful to be your first But I ain’t second guessin Ain't even gonna count the times I fought my heart to keep a distance But I’ve watched long enough The girl I love gettin’ hurt No, ain’t mad about the past If good guys finish last I couldn't be first I couldn’t be first Bridge Couldn’t be the first that had you drawing little hearts Had you wishin’ on shootin’ stars No I couldn’t be your first But I’ll be the one lovin' you so good It’ll feel like I was CH It would’ve been beautiful to be your first But I ain’t second guessin Ain't even gonna count the times I fought my heart to keep a distance But I’ve watched long enough The girl I love gettin’ hurt No ain’t mad about the past If good guys finish last I couldn't be first Tag: I couldn’t be first if good guys finish last I couldn’t be first No I couldn't be first

    Awards: Received Interest Rising Star Award

    Member Note: Hello! Thanks for listening to my recent song FIRE WORK. I am the sole writer on this one. It's received recent accolades through NSAI such as the NSAI Top 40. Thanks for listening and have a super day! Eve


    FIRE WORK

                                                         
                                                            

    Fire Work She and I had a blast in that small town Knew each other way back, yellow bus, chewin’ gum Water fights, killin’ time Skippin’ rocks by Oak Creek Bridge, yeah Few years went by one day things were different Picked her up she was wearin’ red lipstick Perfume, lookin’ dynamite She had grown up in a minute Asked daddy how to tell that girl next door That two best friends could become somethin’ more He said Chorus: Go and let that fire work its magic on her Take her out, late night, tailgate, build a bonfire Cool air, moonlight, pickin’ on a guitar Don’t need to take it too far Let that fire work magic on her Watch the flame shinin’ in her eyes Write her name in sparklers across the sky Like the Fourth of July And if she falls for you right then don’t be surprised Yeah go and let that fire work Well daddy sure was right, she fell in love Time flew we were out just the two of us Kickin’ it, havin’ a few When we ran into a buddy of mine He said man I met this girl I really like Up for anything, laid back, pretty smile Just tryin’ to figure out How to let her know what I feel inside He asked me if I could help him out I told him what my old man had talked about I said (Chorus) Way out there about midnight Shootin’ stars blazin’ nothin’ like it Don’t have to say a whole lot Just let those glowin’ embers talk (Chorus) Yeah go and let that fire work (c) 2021

  5. 5. HE DIDN'T DO - Tim Clarrey
    Awards: Rising Star Award

    Member Note: I wrote this song and lyrics/music alone.


    HE DIDN'T DO

                                                         
                                                            

    He Didn’t Do By: Tim Clarrey Verse 1 My old man came from the wrong side of the tracks, He loved breaking momma’s heart like his whiskey glass, He used those same ways he broke her in two, On sister and me but we never knew, Bullying wasn’t something he didn’t do, Verse 2 He was only strong as the weakest in our house, Life hit hard with him but we all survived somehow, Like the devil in disguise he lied to us to, I prayed knowing God would help me make it through, Believing was something Dad didn’t do, Chorus 1 Didn’t do the crazy fights, with my wife, Didn’t make my kids run, scream, and hide, Didn’t leave em’ feeling so black and blue, I learned a lot about life from him, that’s the truth, By doing everything he didn’t do, Verse 3 Nowadays I’m raising a family of my own, Life’s been better since he’s been good and gone, When it came to a Dad I couldn’t pick or choose, Sometimes I wonder what was his excuse, For doing everything, I wouldn’t do, Chorus 2 Didn’t do the crazy fights, with my wife, Didn’t make my kids run, scream, and hide, Didn’t leave em’ feeling so black and blue, I learned a lot about life from him, that’s the truth, By doing everything, by doing everything, he didn’t do, Bridge It may be hard to understand, He made me… a better man…, (Chorus 2) - Repeat Outro I learned a lot about life from him, that's the truth, By doing everything he didn’t do… By doing everything he didn’t do…..

  6. 6. HIT ROCK BOTTOM - Ian Shortall
    Awards: Rising Star Award

    Member Note: I wrote this song music/lyric alone


    HIT ROCK BOTTOM

                                                         
                                                            

    Hit Rock Bottom Verse 1 Not many people in this world know me well And those that do, I dragged through mud to hell My head it hurts, my body acks but I will not ring the bell Are you coming for me or running away, I can’t tell? I know you could not want my soul, so I have nothing to sell Chorus I hit rock bottom and kept the stone To remind me I have a place to fall I will head for home, but I don’t know when I never know will you forgive me again Verse 2 Drinking cold beer from a warm glass in a dive somewhere I don’t fit the jacket I’m wearing, but I don’t care The shoes I am waring don’t belong to me I fear And the bar fight from last night is still in my hair Through the liquor glass reflection, I see my enemy stare Chorus I hit rock bottom and kept the stone To remind me I have a place to fall I will head for home, but I don’t know when I never know will you forgive me again Bridge Your sitting at home waiting for my boots on the gravel drive The only unbroken wedding day promise is that I stayed alive You packed your bags and called the cab so many times But you can’t bring yourself to tell the driver to drive Chorus I hit rock bottom and kept the stone To remind me I have a place to go I headed for home, but I was on the fence I don’t know if I have it in me to make amends I don’t know if I have it in me to make amends

    HOW YOU LOOK AT ME - DEMO

                                                         
                                                            

    You're the kind of woman that can save a man You're the kind of beautiful left to poetry And somehow your smile lights the shadows of my soul But it ain't how you look It's how you look at me? Like I'm your hero riding in on white horse, to save your life Like the man who's gonna carry you through smoke and fire Your home when home's the only place you wanna be It ain't how you look It's how you look at me I waited for your love like the desert waits for rain And when I found it I let it wash me clean My whole world comes to life, in those sapphire eyes But it ain't how you look It's how you look at me?? Like I'm your hero riding in on white horse, to save your life Like the man who's gonna carry you through smoke and fire Your home when home's the only place you wanna be It ain't how you look It's how you look at me And we both know you only choose to see the best and not the worst of me So I'll spend the rest of my days trying to be Your hero riding in on white horse, to save your life The man who's gonna carry you through smoke and fire Your home when home's the only place you wanna be It ain't how you look It's how you look at me It ain't how you look It's how you look at me

    I Got This by Wes Bullock Copyright 2021 Lord, I've been using again But I got this I've been Living by the river down under a bridge But I got this I can't believe the Things I've done To score myself a fix I don't wanna die out here but I got this Chorus I Got this hole in my heart I been chasing highs to fill but using only digs it deeper still Thought I had gotten myself a drug to cure my emptiness But instead of getting' that I got this Verse I have a list with the meetin's downtown in my pocket Heard how they mighta figured how to stop this I think it's time I get inside and give them steps a try Powerless, oh man hell yes, I got this Chorus Bridge I Joined the circle coffee shaking in my hand Took my turn to talk, hoped they'd understand Chorus said, I Got this hole in my heart I been chasing highs to fill but using only digs it deeper still Thought I had gotten myself a drug to cure my emptiness But instead of getting' that I got this And They all said, Thanks, keep on coming back... We got this

    I'll Get Over You When the stars over Texas are no longer burnin bright When the Mighty Mississippi has all run dry When Jesus comes back one day, when the sun becomes the moon Maybe that’s when I’ll get over you CH I have good days and bad days But they’re always want you back days Some scars time can’t heal Try to hide the hurt behind me But your memory always finds me Ain’t no escapin’ how I feel When husbands are always right and wives are always wrong When I hear somethin better than a good ol Waylon song When every politician just up and tells the truth Maybe that’s when I’ll get over you (BREAKDOWN) CH When a man can go back in time, undo his mistakes When he realizes what he’s got before it’s way too late When a broken heart can fix itself just as good as new Maybe that’s when I’ll get over you Yeah, maybe that’s when I’ll get over you (BREAKDOWN)

    If I Were You 08-19-21 If I were you I’d drop it all and I’d throw on my shoes Tear down the road like I had everything to lose Cuz you got everything to lose If I were you There’d be no second thought on what I’d say Do Anything to make goodbye go away Make you wanna stay Show me things are really gonna change Cuz if you were me Boy you’d see Every bruise and every scar The million cracks across my heart You’d read my mind and see we’re runnin out of time That I’m so close to letting go if you were me then you would know Exactly what I’d do If I were you I wouldn’t let me take that suitcase down Open those drawers and turn them inside out Like I’m doing now So give me the love that you’ve been holding back hold me tighter than you ever have Cuz if you were me Boy you’d see Every bruise and every scar The million cracks across my heart You’d read my mind and see we’re runnin out of time That I’m so close to letting go if you were me then you would know But hey, that’s just what I’d do If I were you

  11. 11. IT'S STILL ABOUT THE SONG - Jonny Born
    Awards: Best of SongU.com Award Received Interest Rising Star Award

    Member Note: I wrote the music and lyrics for this song.. its a 100%’r. Thank you.


    IT'S STILL ABOUT THE SONG

                                                         
                                                            

    I'll bet you ten dollars and all the beer Radio ain't gonna want to play this song In fact I wrote it sure that no one else would ever hear my preaching in four-four that runs too long It's about the suits, the judge, the jury They'll probably throw the switch before bar nine But, trust me when I tell you I ain't in no worry Cause the reason that I sing it is all mine Ya this sermon on the row ain't for the sinners And it ain't for the angels in the sky It's for the writers and the singers who followed every dream to be here, And in all the tears and blood forgot just why Didn't it used to be about the music? The truth between 3 chords just can't be wrong Somewhere along the way all the money and the fame Got out in front of what make us sing along Maybe I'm just naive but I believe It's still about the song It's still about the song They'll kill this one for all the cliche in it Then go back to playing guitar on the keys And get lost inside the rhyme, never sit and take the time To find out what the hell it really means Ya this sermon on the row ain't for the sinners And it ain't for the angels in the sky It's for the writers and the singers who followed every dream to be here, And in all the tears and blood forgot just why Didn't it used to be about the music? The truth between 3 chords just can't be wrong Somewhere along the way all the money and the fame Got out in front of what make us sing along Maybe I'm just naive but I believe It's still about the song It's still about the song (solo) Ya this sermon on the row ain't for the sinners And it aint for the angels in the sky It's for the writers and the players who sold everything to stay here And in all the tears and blood forgot just why Maybe i'm right maybe I'm wrong, but for me It's still about the song

    MAN, THESE DAYS

                                                         
                                                            

    To say these days are complicated Ain’t really how I’d say it It seems the whole damn world has lost it’s mind  But for a simple guy like me just trying  To do the next good thing I’m findin’ The list of good gets longer all the time And I’m just tryin to get it right Man these days, you gotta do it all but not too much Be everything, hard like a rock but soft to touch Know how to love and how you don’t To slay the dragon or let him go How to say please and thanks,  To know your fist ain’t your greatest strength That’s a little bit of what it takes To be a man, these days Ballet starts at 8 PM So I leave the tractor stuck again, and Haul ass down the road so I’m not late Tomorrow I play soccer mom Carpool-taxi, mow the lawn So the tractor and the hole will have to wait And I’m still tryin to get it right Man these days, you gotta do it all but not too much Be everything, hard like a rock but soft to touch Know how to love and how you don’t To slay the dragon or let him go How to say please and thanks,  To know your fist ain’t your greatest strength That’s a little bit of what it takes To be a man, these days   Grandma washed and Grandpa dried They drowned some worms from time to time Her job was cookin’ at the church For free cause that was Jesus work He paid all the bills and stuff She built a home of life and love Somehow then that was enough Back when “woke” just meant, I’m up Oh, man these days, you gotta do it all but not too much Be everything, hard like a rock but soft to touch Know how to love and how you don’t To slay the dragon or let him go How to say please and thanks,  To know your fist ain’t your greatest strength That’s a little bit of what it takes To be a man, these days To be a man, these days, yeah

    NEVER GOOD AT MATH Gotta be a hundred guys in here tonight That’s two hundred eyes on you Only one of us gonna get it right Ninety-nine are gonna lose A little courage gotta count for something So, girl, here goes nothing CH I got twenty dollars in my pocket Ninety minutes till they close Enough to buy a round or two After that nobody knows Let’s subtract these other guys Add a slow dance in that jukebox light Odds are that I don’t stand a chance But I was never good at math I was never good at math I swear I caught you lookin’ my way At least a dozen times There’s a million reasons I should just walk away But girl I can’t count that high CHORUS repeat I got twenty dollars in my pocket Ninety minutes till they close Enough to buy a round or two After that nobody knows Let’s subtract these other guys Girl, I’ll make that smile multiply Odds are that I don’t stand a chance But I was never good at math I was never good at math

    RAIN AND RUST

                                                         
                                                            

    I knew the night you bought me that whiskey Told me your name right after you kissed me This could be one of those nights I can’t run Two years a month and seven days since we OD’d on us and woke up on empty It’s come to this, Some stuff don’t mix Each of us alone make perfect sense, for someone else Together we’re a bad experience, a perfect hell You and me are like rain and rust A perfect storm of wind and dust A candle dropped in kerosene Two angels, three broken wings It ain’t like we didn’t try We didn’t live but no one died It’s not you or me it’s us, and We’re rain and rust There were some days I thought we might make it Some nights where nobody faked it I almost believed, the ship wouldn’t sink We could spend another lifetime patching holes, and bailing out But if we say it like it feels, we both know, it’s over now You and me are like rain and rust A perfect storm of wind and dust A candle dropped in kerosene Two angels, three broken wings It ain’t like we didn’t try We didn’t live but no one died It’s not you or me it’s us, and We’re rain and rust I’ll go mine and you go yours I’ll go mine and you go yours I’ll go mine and you go yours You and me are like rain and rust A perfect storm of wind and dust A candle dropped in kerosene Two angels, three broken wings It ain’t like we didn’t try We didn’t live but no one died It’s not you or me it’s us, and We’re rain and rust Rain and rust

    Remember Me Kindly Verse 1 All the lyin’... cheatin’... I did so well But the morning… after... hard to live with myself Took everything from you .. as your heart bled on the floor Stood out in the pouring rain ..without a life worth living for was the… taste of another... that made us lose it all Pre-Chorus 1 After all this time… I still want the best for you In the quiet moments… I hope you think of me too Chorus 1 So remember me kindly remember me well I always shared with you things I could never tell After all these years wonder why I’m all alone And I’m hoping one day to come back home So remember me kindly, remember me well Remember me kindly and remember me well Verse 2 Still like… that young girl on your wedding day Don’t wear a band on your finger... erasing me without a trace If your momma warned you once and she warned you twice Looking back now you realise... without you there is no life Pre-Chorus 2 After all this time… I want the best for you And in the quiet moments… hope you think of me too Chorus 2 So remember me kindly remember me well I always shared with you things I could never tell All these years wondering why I’m all alone And I’m hoping one day to come back home So remember me kindly and remember me well Remember me kindly and remember me well Bridge My soul is down a dark well… never to be found So I’m hoping you forgive me.. so maybe you can save me Chorus 3 So remember me kindly... remember me well I always shared with you things I could never tell All these years wondering why I’m all alone And I’m hoping one day... baby... to come back home So please remember me kindly girl, remember me well Remember me kindly girl, remember me well Outro After All these yours wondering why I'm still all alone And I’m hoping one day you'll let me come on home --oh oh oh oh..oh oh oh ..oh oh oh So remember me kindly girl..remember me well --oh oh oh oh..oh oh oh ..oh oh oh Remember me kindly girl..remember me well Remember me kindly girl..remember me well....

    SHE’S GOT TO V1: She lied to her mama on the phone There’s no one special, no one to bring home What would mama think if she knew Her baby don’t have a good man She’s got two (CHORUS) One’s a gentleman with her, takes her out to dinner with linen and candlelight He always on time, holds the door, pours the wine and knows how to treat her right The other is her lover neath the covers she discovers that he feeds her appetite It all sounds taboo, she don’t wanna choose But she’s got to V2: One’s steady and safe, one’s heat and desire One’s solid as stone, one sets her on fire Her head and her heart have got her confused And she doesn’t wanna lose either one But she’s got to (CHORUS) (BRIDGE) She don’t want to play em but don’t want it to end And it’s makin her head spin knowing that she’s been Trying to have it both ways slow fade to a heartbreak Now look at the tears on her face It’s time to choose She’s got to (CHORUS) Copyright nickastro@yahoo.com (856) 206 7191

    SONGS I GREW UP ON I take a left on Main Hear the church bells ring Driving through my hometown Hear that old screen door Swinging on the porch And the crickets when the moon comes out The music from the ice cream truck gets stuck In my head on summer nights That backyard creek singing me to sleep Takes me back to another time They’re the sounds that let me know I’m home Ain’t gonna hear ‘em on the radio But you won’t ever find a melody That does a better job reminding me Who I am, where I’m from Every little thing that I love They ain’t the kind that you can sing along But they’re the songs I grew up on Had a big ol’ pile Of scratched up vinyl Daddy handed down to me Loved to stay up late Listening to the Country greats But even they couldn’t beat Mama whistlin’ in the kitchen Baking peanut butter pie The marching band up in the stands On a homefield Friday night CHORUS 2X

I’ll always know what your thinkin’ The drink you like drinkin’ Makin’ you smile, when your needing some slack. So, if that sounds quit alright to you, Oh baby! If that sounds, quit alright to you!

    THAT’S NOT WHAT I SEE I watched you get ready tonight Your smile faded in your reflection You say the years haven’t been kind And point out every imperfection You may not look exactly like when we were twenty-three And tell me you’re not as pretty but that’s not what I see… I see the same smile you had with our first “I love you” And still want you so bad I run home every day to you I see the way you make all those around you better And the man I can only be when we are together So when you get caught up in every flaw that you’ve thought up you’ve got a different view than me Cause that’s not what I see You seem to think I can’t forgive you For mistakes down river from the bridge But that’s a million miles from the truth I love you more than I hate what you did You’re sorry that you hurt me and changed all my dreams But I’m exactly where I wanna be ‘cause that’s not what I see REPEAT CHORUS …That’s not what I see Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhh That’s what I not what I, that’s not what I, that’s not what I see That’s not what I see By: Kerry Jetter, Delbert Cagle

    The Other Side Of Midnight Been but a little while baby since you've been gone Here in the early hours before darkness touches dawn I found the brightest star and made a wish That I don't spend another lonely night like this Thinking bout your smile your laugh your touch your kiss I miss (CHORUS) Your yellow sun dress hair all in a mess but the prettiest girl I'd see As you walked passed some guys you'd catch their eyes yet you were going home with me But that was then now here I am all alone tonight Things don't look the same when there's little light On the other side of midnight Seems I’m all caught up in a cruel twist of fate I want to call you up in many ways it's much too late I'm lying here trying to get some sleep It's tough with a trace of your perfume still on my sheet And visions playing in my head of you stuck on repeat (CHORUS) (CHORUS) Copyright nickastro@yahoo.com (856) 206 7191

    Member Note: I wrote the music and lyrics to this song alone. 100%’r


    YOU BE THE STORM

                                                         
                                                            

    Sometimes a dream collides with a nightmare And they both come true And it feels just like your world is gonna break in two If every turn you take Leads to a path unknown Let my love show the way And never walk alone When your bridges are burning and the ashes rain down and you find yourself running Praying you're never found When you want to ride the wind But your wings are worn I'll be the mountain And you be the storm I'll be the mountain And you be the storm When the price of life is too high And the world holds you down I will lift you up my dear To find higher ground I'm the bright sun in your sky And the solid ground below You can rest on my love Oh, the peace you'll know When your bridges are burning And the ashes rain down And you find yourself running Praying you're never found When you want to ride the wind But your wings are worn I'll be the mountain You be the storm I'm the rock you can lean on I'm the summit you can climb I'm forever yours and you are mine When your bridges are burning And the ashes rain down You find yourself walking On uncommon ground When you want to ride the wind But your sails are torn You be the waves And I'll be the shore When your bridges are burning And the ashes rain down You find yourself running Praying you're never found When you want to ride the wind But your wings are worn I'll be the mountain And You be the storm I'll be the mountain And you be the storm
