Your Heart Is Miles Away

© 2013 Mark Cote

laying in the dark looking for the touch that reaches out
in anticipation where are you
dreaming of you feeling for me what I feel for you
in anticipation where are you

(chorus)   I see the the sun but can I feel her warmth
                   as this love goes back and forth
                   near as your side of the bed 
                   but your heart is miles away
                   I see the honey but don't taste the sweet
                   where words and emotions meet
                   as near as your side of the bed
                   but your heart is miles away

seeing in your eyes the world that's hidden within
I only want to be there with you
is my love the one that you will cherish in your world
I only want to be there with you

am I reaching more for you than you are for me
am I making it more than it was meant to be


Will I ever break the fortress that's around your heart
will you open your heart to me
does another one keep you hanging on
will you open your heart to me

You Saw The Best In Me From The Start

© 2011 Mark Cote

Some have called me a loser
since they took it all from me
some have called me a loner
but I see more than what they see
and you always knew I did
from the start

cannot touch tomorrows
'til we give up our yesterdays
looking in the mirror
thought my past was too much to take
but you always lifted me
from the start

(chorus)  you believed in me
                  when no one else could see
                  and sometimes I doubted myself
                  but you saw the best in me
                  from the start

though you have never held me
I hold you inside my heart
wanted to tell you I love you
did you feel the same way for me
and I think you always did
from the start

She Sure Knows How To Make It Rain

© 2011 Mark Cote

It was a sunny day
never dreamed the words she'd say
how clouds came here to stay
she sure knows how to make it rain

finds a temptation
in a lover's hesitation
what is her fascination
she sure knows how to make it rain

(chorus)  let it rain down
                  down my weary face
                  the scars will not erase
                  let it rain
                  let it rain down
                  wash away the memories
                  each drop a piece of me
                  let it rain

love's no guarantee
her heart will stay with me
if she still wants to be free
she sure knows how to make it rain

Is This Where I Belong

© 2013 Mark Cote

in this town of empty dreams
thought that I had it made
have a house
have a car
but the love I knew is gone

now faces that show no warmth
try to pull me in or push me down
don't want to fall
but where to run
when I don't know where to go

(chorus)   running in circles
                  circles in my mind
                  stay here in my past
                  or leave it all behind
                  well I may never
                  I may never know
                  is this where I
                  is this where I belong

traveled far away to other towns
looked at things I'd never seen
all the people seem so nice
felt like it welcomed me

the price that it takes to start again
and the cost to just sustain
will I be losing ground
and who is it that I blame
