Thankful For The Pain

© 2013 Mark Cote

What I never knew when I had fallen down
is where it would lead 'til you came around
through the chaos we can't see our way
but on the other side is our sunny day

(chorus) I'm thankful for the pain that taught me how to heal
                  thankful for the tears that taught me how to feel
                  thankful for everything I've been through
                  for if I didn't go through it
                  I'd never met you

grey cloud days when things went bad
remember days that yesterdays had
like the rain that washes the ground
flowers bloom without a sound

yeah, I'm thankful


Life leads us to where we belong
even when it's right even when it's wrong
follow the light through it all
it will protect you and never let you fall

The Man Without A Dream

© 2015 Mark Cote

Hey sun
will you work across the sky
and then you call it night
hey sun

chasing down the moon
years go by so soon
hey moon

are you dreaming of the day
have you lost your way
hey moon

days you let it all fly past
don't let them be your last
hey moon

(chorus) going in the dusk
                  coming into the dawn
                  don't you grab it before it's all gone
                  we may not know just what it means
                  the man without a dream

hey stars
so distant in the night
though you shine the same light
hey stars

millions of you and me
dreaming in vaster seas
hey me

I may not know just where to go
but my heart will tell me so
hey me


Hey you
may my you hold your inner light
may it keep on burning bright
hey you

smiles may come and go
but let the spark inside you grow
Hey you

As Long As I Have You

© 2013 Mark Cote

Foggy morning
uncertain tomorrow
windy words
forgotten sorrow
but it doesn't matter
as long as I have you

crossroad turns
choices we borrow
storybook girl
those dreams we follow
but it doesn't matter
as long as I have you

(chorus) Since I have you
                  as long as I have you
                  there's nothing wrong
                  nothing we can't make it through
                  love turns grey to blue
                  when you have me
                  and I have you

Sunburned hues
of heartless skies
are no longer alone
after goodbyes
the world could shatter
as long as I have have you

How It Should Be

© 2013 Mark Cote

thinking about
the world that we live
how what they take's
not what they give

so few that are rich
like the scratch you can't itch

is there so much hate
and then love is too late

about our world
and how it should be


costumed smiles
who live in a box
will never get you to where you are not

times they are friends
without love it is pretend

told to believe
is all the world that they perceive

your eyes are open like me
take a step back and we'll see

about our world
and how it should be
