Before And After



© 2013 Mark Cote

Before I was a muscle car
before you were a fast train
chasing you all around
bring it back again

before we knew how to dance
before we knew how to sing
harmony out of tune
laughing on a swing

(chorus) before
                  before and after
                  after
                  after and before
                  bring it on back
                  bring it on back for more

After the sun went down
after the summer rain
the starlight in your eyes
my heart's a melted flame

after the cloudy days
after all the bitter cold
I still have you around
still have you to hold

before yesterday
after tomorrow
wipe away the tears
wipe away the sorrow

(chorus)
(instrumental)

before yesterday
after tomorrow
wipe away the tears
wipe away the sorrow

(chorus)

She's With The Band



© 2017 Mark Cote

glowing from the front row
and after the show
never wanders off
she goes where they go

out on the road
from town to town
always keeps them smiling
she lives in their sound

(chorus) she's with the band
                  man oh man
                  she's with the band
                  give her a hand
                  give her a hand
                  she's with the band
                  when the music's really groovin'
                  and the band is really movin'
                  she's with the band


she plays the drums
plays the guitar
she plays the keys
yeah, she's a star

(chorus)

On The Outside Looking In



© 2013 Mark Cote

water globe rose glistens in the sun
moment of time that slipped away
rainbow colors kisses my eyes
but sadly could not stay

couples smiling holding hands
in their world their souls are one
as I see their ball of love
and summer of their sun

why is this the view, I see...

(chorus) On the outside of love looking in
                  is it a crime or just a sin
                  is this the world I now live in
                  tell me...
                  tell me...
                 where to begin
                 On the outside of love looking in

sunrise blooming blues and pinks
what brings of this new day
holding hope give me strength
help me find my way

(instrumental)

why is this the view, I see...

(chorus)

Going To The House



© 2017 Mark Cote

The end of the day that's were they go
to a place that only they know
has to be big 'cause everybody is there
I've never been so what do I wear?

(chorus) must be a celebration
                  don't need an invitation
                  seems like everybody knows
                  seems like everybody goes
                  they're going
                  going
                  going to the house

Hear them say but no one says a word
But I had to ask and this is what I heard

over yonder
don't know where
over yonder
over there

(chorus)
(instrumental)

way down south in an uncharted town
is where they live and where they're found
so gather y'all in a pickup truck
never too fast or you might get stuck

(chorus)

As Long As You're In My Heart



© 2017 Mark Cote

some like to drive in cars
drive real far
some like to dance in bars
think their a star
really matter
as long as you're in my heart

some spend their time
and every dime
striving for wealth
an untouched shelf
doesn't really matter
as long as you're in my heart

(chorus) in my heart
                  that's where you are
                  running so high
                  running so far
                  feeling butterflies
                 with every step that you take
                 it's all that matters
                 as long as you're in my heart

raining outside
raining within
living in a fog
can't seem to begin
doesn't really matter
as long as you're in my heart

(chorus)
(instrumental)
(chorus)

Salt In My Coffee



© 2017 Mark Cote

got the words
knows what to say
dripping sweeter than honey
even today

moving around
nobody knows
thief in the night
stealing hearts as she goes

hey, when you slip
when you fall
if they knew they wouldn't help you at all

(chorus) salt in my heart and salt in my eyes
                     though you give me salt in my coffee
                     you give them sugar in their tea

can do no wrong
you're so sly
fooling even my family
you're living a lie

playing around
just for fun
you're halo's too bright
it's drowning the sun

hey, when you slip
when you fall
if they knew they wouldn't help you at all

(chorus)
(instrumental)

You Make Me Believe


© 2017 Mark Cote

If I could count the million reasons why
you were brought to me
I don't think I would even try
you mean much more you see

(chorus)  You make me believe
                     that I can soar higher
                     you make me believe
                     I can dance on a wire
                     you make me believe
                     believe in myself
                     make me believe
                     believe how I felt
                     you make me believe


when I up and took a leap of faith
unsure where I would go
you always seem to bring my spirits up
how do you always know

(chorus)

If you call me love
then I'll be love
If you call me sun
then I'll shine above....

(instrumental)

(chorus)
