A Beautiful Melody

Amy Abernathy and Mark Cote

Sing me a song of happiness
Play me a song of pure joy
I was shackled by my misery
but I quit playing in the key of me.
Life has a different rhythm.
Now that you are beside me.

(Chorus) It’s beautiful melody,
                  A love orchestrated symphony
                  When your arms are around me
                  It’s a beautiful melody.

Even if it’s new it feels so surreal.
I am hearing a  chorus of true love.
A refrain of a hummingbirds hum
grooving from a six string strum
All I hear is wonderful love song
Looking forward to what may come


You got my feet tapping,
My heart pounding
A lyric of unending bliss
Every minute with you
Is time I don’t want to miss.

            It’s beautiful melody,
            A love orchestrated symphony
            When your arms are around me
            It’s a beautiful melody.

            It’s beautiful melody,
            A love orchestrated symphony
            When your arms are around me
            It’s a beautiful melody.

Boys Will Be Boys

© 2013 Mark Cote

back then in our teens
brake pedals and gasoline
football rings and beauty queens
boys will be boys

t-shirt girls and cut off jeans
drive-ins we made the scene
we lived out the summer dream
boys will be boys

(chorus) when I look back now
                  I wonder how
                  we ever made it through those years
                  through all the fun
                  through all the beer
                  we still made it
                  made it here
                  boys will be boys

muscle cars and pickup trucks
cruise the strip to try their luck
show 'em all what you've got
boys will be boys

cheap perfume and boyhood dreams
a melody a moonlit sea
my first love her and me
boys will be boys

Run Run To Me

© 2013 Mark Cote

dusty roads and all alone
never know which way to go
different towns we're both the same
run to me

waves of sweet or waves of grey
we always know the things to say
but I'm still so many miles away from you

(chorus) If you can run
                  run to me
                  baby I can run
                  run to you
                  together we can make it through
                  if you run to me
                  I'll run to you

the rains we feel are all the same
nothing to lose and all to gain
I can see it in your eyes
run to me

sands of time will tell our fate
in our dreams while we wait
the days they stretch so long away from you

Where Dreams Cry

© 2017 Mark Cote

rainbows crying like children
the ones that are left there inside
trees that feel so stranded
unable to take a stride

eyes hopelessly wonder
do stars look for me too
can you see from the outside under
to a perpetual view

(chorus) a look into the mind
                  where dreams cry
                  look inside and you will find
                  where dreams cry

when thoughts keep getting bigger
you live in a worlds all alone
just a trade-off for the dreamer
paradox of it's own

maybe it's just a smoke-screen
maybe I don't make sense
and I just wanted to fly
as you peer out over your fence

Lady Rising

© 2017 Mark Cote

in this prefab world
real emotions seem to go unheard
so he packs them up for another day

smiling prefab smiles
no one even looks inside
they just walk away and mumble on

another point of view
cry in the light
they just look right through
but there's one girl who can read his nights
and she holds on and on and on.....

(chorus) lady
                  with love like a sunny morning
                  the empty of the night...
                  prefab people
                  can't reach me without emotion
                  vanish like shadows in the night....

keeping strong I won't let go
to emotions they never show
or be a blind collective thought
no one sees

when she smiles
when she laughs
he knows he's found his other half
and together they paint the world
with blue and red from grey

Denny Darling

© 2017 Mark Cote

Denny darling
whispers something in her ear
Denny darling
really hopes that she will hear
Denny darling
trying to get her to believe
oh, ho.. Denny darling

(piano riff)

Denny darling
brings her flowers everyday
Denny darling
tells her things he's trained to say
Denny darling
is it all just for show
oh, ho... Denny darling

(chorus) when she sees through his disguise
                     when she's getting very wise
                     there’ll be Hell to pay
                     and all she's gonna say is
                     no no no... Denny darling

(piano riff)

Denny darling
with his wandering eye
Denny darling
acting oh so sly
Denny darling
but nothing left for you
when you know you are un-true
bye bye bye... Denny darling

Where Do We Go When Stars Fly To The Sky

© 2017 Mark Cote

they taught us to dream
they taught us to believe
larger than life
so hard to perceive

in this hand-me-down life
some they break free
some shine like diamonds
some learn to see

taken too soon
we thought it'd never end
reality changes our world of pretend

(chorus) where do we go when stars fly to the sky
                     bewildered looks
                     we're still asking why
                     where do we go when all that is left
                     is this feeling of loss
                     how could we have guessed
                     where do we go
                     when stars
                     fly to the sky

stars shine down
and light you and me
believe in yourself
and what you could be

hold onto ourselves
remember the past
cherish the moment
it may never last
