It's All About That

© 2011 Mark Cote

the sun came out for you today
on a cloud of love you're swept away
would never see had you not looked up
just when you thought you'd had enough

(chorus) It's not about flat
                or the pain in your eyes
                and the tears that you've cried
                when he told you goodbye
                it's about up
                when they all turn away
                'cause you're better than what brought you down
                yeah, it's all about that

sunny days have dried your eyes
and happiness is what you'll find
how you smile through all the rain
is the part of you that lives again


(bridge) yeah it's a better life...
                it will treat you right...

Dance Out Of My Dreams

© 2011 Mark Cote

You're the smile on the moon that watches over me
a gentle wave on a lonely sea
turning shadows into dreams
do you know what that means

you paved the road that I walk on
you made me feel that I belong
Though I still have a ways to go
with every step I begin to grow

Raise a glass and give a toast
'cause girl you're really the most

(chorus) and dance out of my dreams
                and into my arms tonight
                sway with me
                under the candlelight
                and dance out of my dreams
                and into my arms tonight

I wish I could give back to you
the love you showed I show for you
I'm thankful that you saw in me
what no one saw not even me

The Warmth In My Song

© 2011 Mark Cote

It was a happy day back in 63
a silly girl looked back at me
who was to know what you'd become
who was to know you'd be so fun

you held me up when I was small
aww, I can still recall it all
remember all the fun we had
just never tell mom or dad

(chorus) but oh... when I heard the news
                the cutting of your fuse
                took my breath of life away
                and oh... it's still so hard to believe
                that you had to leave
                and we have to carry on
                you're the warmth in my song

While no one ever won your hand
you touched hearts across the land
your heart looked out more than in
We'll meet some day again

Lonely Did Me Wrong

© 2011 Mark Cote

You revived me
I lived in a shell
I was locked up inside
trying to hide
from how I feel

distant sunrise to
the dark of the moon
you, alone held the key
that opened that door
to what I am for...

(chorus) and lonely did me wrong
                I couldn't go on
                'til the love in a song
                 and lonely did me wrong
                 where did I belong
                'til you came along
                 and now that I see...
                 that lonely
                 did me wrong

voices around me
do not say a word
surrounded by fools
who play by the rules
don't see what it means
