Eyes Of Saturn

© 2012 Mark Cote

Pieces of color from out of my past
your love warms the moon to a honey glow
come together forever at last
I feel it with me wherever I go

you know how to reach me wherever you are
the softness that I only dreamed I could hold
as far as the stars but as near as my heart
the warmth of the sun without you's so cold

(chorus) If I bought you a rose
                  kissed you on the nose
                 now lost in time
                 my heart is in space
                 when I see you face
                 and your gentle grin
               and oo..oo..oo.. those eyes
               those eyes of Saturn
               and oo..oo..oo.. those eyes
               those eyes of Saturn

Hold my hand and we'll walk forever
so devoted to you in so many ways
being with you through all kinds of weather
How you turned my nights into sunny days

It's A Hippie Day

© 2012 Mark Cote

summer dreams and paisley mornings
watch the clouds and the shapes they're forming
the dew, glistens all around
and the incense fills the air

waterfalls of colors melting
flowers smile and so it's helping
to wake, to the dawn
and live without a care

(chorus) ba da da da da it's a hippie day
                  ba da da da da it's a hippie day
                  feeling so groovy it's a sunny day
                  yeah baby, it's a hippie day

hear the music songbirds singing
walk with you you're arms I'm clinging
look, into your eyes
and it all just fades away...

I Don't Know Why I Like You Like I Do

© 2012 Mark Cote

You... know how to pull my strings
you... know how to do those things
can really touch my heart
or get under my skin

why... are we fire and ice?
why... can't we be nice?
is, it when we fight
we entice?

(chorus) I..... don't know why I like you like I do
                  it's always something that we say
                  or what we do
                  that pushes me away and back again
                  that's true
                  and I don't know why I like you like I do

in... this tug of war
one... things for sure
we, see more of us
so much more and more

Dreamers In The Night

© 2012 Mark Cote

I grab a book of poetry
I have to wonder why
how words that touch so many hearts
come from the the ones outside

Lennon's future paisley dream
Lizard king's solemn gaze
Dylan's twisted meaning rhymes
Hendrix purple haze

(chorus) Dreamers in the night
                  can always see the day
                  dreamers in the night
                  when the world sees only grey
                  dreamers in the night
                  why do they go away
                  dreamers in the night
                  one day they all will stay

Allegory skyline
alabaster sky
fire burning in her heart
turquoise in her eyes

tear-stained wing butterfly
now you fly at night
you'll find the strength to sail again
by the morning light


the raven dances in his cage
for only he will know
why the ones that always look ahead
and where they all will go
