Stranded On The Moon


© 2010 Mark Cote

ties that bind have set me free
now sailing on an uncharted sea..
stranded on the moon
the you I knew now is just me
sometimes it all is uncertainty...
stranded on the moon

(chorus) stranded on the moon
                  watch my world keep spinning around
                  around since you went away
                  now I'm lost and can't be found
                  stranded on the moon

have a laugh on me if it makes you feel tall
for the ones who laugh never see it all...
stranded on the moon
casting stones then run and flee
branding a name that isn't me...
stranded on the moon
(chorus)

as I learn to see in the night
may your words come back to you and bite...
stranded on the moon
maybe the safest place to be
away from all the hostility...
stranded on the moon
(chorus)

But You're Still Here


© 2018 Mark Cote

little boy
gets his first A
standing up
but they turn away

things he does
that make him so proud
he keeps it all in
no one looks from outside

(bridge) smiling outside
                  he knows one day
                  it will turn back around


(chorus) but you're still here
                  waving dreams around
                  you're still here
                  with ones who wear a frown
                  maybe just one day
                  when you thought it won't be found
                  I'll be gone
                  and you'll still be here

writes his 1st song
in the halls of his life
it's all that he has
so he holds on tight

then one day
his clouds unfold
now feel the warmth
that once felt so cold

(chorus)

Rush To Judgement


© 2018 Mark Cote

half-truths
whispered around
winding circles
that can't be unwound

who to trust
when words cloud a head
was it real
or something they said

(chorus) rush to judgement
                  too soon to know
                  rush to judgement
                  too soon to go
                  when you don't know
                  all there is you should know
                  rush to judgement
                  is not the way you should go

how do you know
if the words are pure
follow your heart
and you'll know that you're sure

(chorus)
(instrumental)

the choice you make
is the answer you know
you'll take that with you
wherever you go

(chorus)

Rainy Day Sunshine


© 2018 Mark Cote

sunshine
dew drops
the morning kisses hello
cloud burst
tear stains
so many places to go

another day of shaded memories
and wandering thoughts of you
a puzzle piece fits together
but not as tightly as you

(chorus) rainy day
                  sunshine
                  no one will ever know
                  rainy day
                  sunshine
                  hidden out by the glow
                  rainy day
                  sunshine
                  going
                  going so slow

fickle
summer
never know just how you feel
grass stains
toy trains
sometimes life is surreal

(chorus)

another day of shaded memories
and wandering thoughts of you
a puzzle piece fits together
but not as tightly as you

(chorus)

High Energy Fun


© 2018 Mark Cote

shaking the ground
with a wondrous sound
she'll bring you up
when you're feeling down

throwing a glow
wherever she goes
casting a spell
but nobody knows

(chorus) She's a bit wild
                  she's come undone
                  no need to worry
                  she's high energy fun
                  dancing around
                  in the web that she's spun
                  no need to worry
                  she's high energy fun

so take it all in
let it live within
It's not so bad
to be feeling so glad

enjoy the smile
that comes from above
for the answer you seek
they call it love

(chorus)
(instrumental)

remember that summer
the summer of youth
she never grew old
how 'bout you?

the inner child
still colors the sky
still laughs aloud
while they wonder why

(chorus)

It's Never Easy



© 2012 Mark Cote

I could say I was lonely
I could say you were the only, only one
but would it all change
would it even matter at all

Down a trail of my dried tears
now living alone in my fears
trust now rearranged
empty mirror shattered wall

(chorus) It's never easy
                  letting go
                  it's never easy
                  letting it show
                  When your heart's been kissed
                  so deeply you know
                  it's never easy
                  letting go

I could say I was fine
you could turn back the hands, hands of time
with a simple look
my heart's a fish on a hook

you could say all is forgiven
How would I know since I've been bitten
now so unsure
trust is no longer pure

(chorus)

Never Is Forever


© 2018 Mark Cote

she said she would leave me never
but she did
can't be undid

They say the rains would never come
but they did
yes they did

so how am I to know what is for sure
when there is no cure
what one may know can turn around
the shifting ground

(chorus) Does she know
                  does she know
                  never is forever
                  when I turn my back I'm gone
                  when I turn to go I am done

The words I thought I'd never say
now I say
everyday

the thoughts of you haunt echoed halls
and faceless dolls
silent calls

so how am I to know what is for sure
when there is no cure
what one may know can turn around
the shifting ground

(chorus)
