Champagne Raindrop

© 2011 Mark Cote

she's the smile on the moon
that midnight surprise
the pink sunrise
that colors every day
her bubbles never stop
she's a champagne raindrop

upside down
the world that we're in
she spins me round
when she's give me that grin
just another day with my
champagne raindrop

(chorus) she's a champagne raindrop
                  a diamond in a teardrop
                  champagne raindrop
                  her bubbles never stop
                  champagne raindrop
                  washing over me
                  sparkly, cuddly, bubbly
                  champagne raindrop

and when the days go North
we'll go south
dancing in a dream
is what it's all about
I never had a doubt about
my champagne raindrop

Images Within My Mind

© 2012 Mark Cote

second hand dancing fast
like it might be her last
vestige in this place and time
youthful fountain she won't find

lines are drawn upon my face
charcoal and crayon cannot erase
the good the bad my soul entwined
the images within my mind

(chorus) Images
                one of a kind
                images that I find
                sweet or unkind
                these images within my mind

we see the world a different way
some see tomorrow some see today
when we face mortality
what really is reality

with each year a pictograph
the old man cries a baby laughs
on this road we can't rewind
the images within our mind


liquid diamonds in the sand
as they pass from hand to hand
won't be with you when you're gone
just a whisper in a song

pools of fools swimming down
the whirlpool doesn't make a sound
until the stone they're enshrined
now images within my mind

I Fall Into Your Love

© 2011 Mark Cote

the summer clones your inner glow
the sky mirrors your gemstone eyes
you're the laughter inside me when I smile
you're the only girl for me

The gentle brush of an angel's wings
kiss the face of the ones who feel the breeze
I feel that I should know
I fall into your love

(chorus) deeper and deeper
                  and deeper and deeper
                  a freefall in this waterfall
                  maybe I'll drown
                  when you and I is all I see
                  you are the girl for me

I didn't say but you still know
the tears I cry are your summer rain
you know more of me each and every day
it scares me to show the pain

you think I live in a sheltered world
when a world of your love is what I deserve
I thought that you should know
I fall into your love


The gentle brush of an angel's wings
kiss the face of the ones who feel the breeze
I feel that I should know

Where Do We Go

© 2012 Mark Cote

after tears and laughs have past
your kiss won't wash away
it's tattooed on my heart
and I don't know what to say

I feel the velvet moon
soft can still feel cold
footprints in the dark
a heart that beats alone

(chorus) where do we go
                 where do we go to when we part
                 where do we go
                 where do we go to in our heart
                 did I mean as much to you as you did to me
                 where do we go

are sometimes all we have
that echo in my brain
should I cry when I see the sun
or laugh when I feel the rain


callused in the sand
feel the warming rays
every time I think of you
try to grasp at yesterday
