His December

© 2013 Mark Cote

She was his December
she faded from his life
no longer his girl
could never be his wife

a cold he'll remember
not like sweet falling snow
now walking alone
no season where to go

(chorus) oh... oh, oh oh he surrenders
                  oh... oh, oh oh his December
                  in the 12th of the night
                  he gave up the fight
                  oh... oh, oh oh his December

let the winter winds blow
empty heart won't make a sound
a love that is lost
words cannot be found

his year now is over
turn the worn yellowed page
her ink now has dried
and so now have his days

I Can't Run That Fast

© 2015 Mark Cote

Make me run when I only crawl
you push me forward I trip and fall
when I advance I hit a wall
where will I be after it all

dizzy thoughts go round and round
for I live without a sound
in my ear the buzz astounds
what I seek here cannot be found

(chorus) I can't run
                  I can't run that fast
                  reeling and confused as you fly past
                  I can't run
                  I can't run that fast
                  will you wait for me is what I ask
                  I can't run
                  I can't run that fast

so many words it's hard to read
in a blur of lines and themes I see
I need to get myself up to speed
I know you see all I could be


while I walk on shifting sand
Like peeking at wonderland
so many things to understand
life never works quite like we planned

What You Do To Me

© 2013 Mark Cote

You have shown me
what's hidden inside my heart
I was fooling myself
put my heart on the shelf
'til you came along

I remember
the feeling you stir in me
though it's been a long time
you still seem to find
my love like a song

(chorus) Looking in your eyes
                  now I realize
                  this is where I wanna be
                  flowing in your heart
                  I will never depart
                  our love is the sea
                  I could explain
                  in a million ways
                  what you do to me
                  girl, what you do to me

worlds are different
but our love is still the same
stepped out of my shell
 and you did as well
share tomorrows with me

Auto Pilot

© 2013 Mark Cote

my words never hear my mind
my dreams all seem blind
you've got my heart spinnin' 'round
or is it something in the wine

my world flips upside down
when you come around
living now with a one track mind
for the love that I have found

(bridge) do you feel it too
                  do you have a clue
                  what I'm going through

(chorus) drive me auto pilot
                  you're leading me on
                  wonder which way we will go
                  drive me auto pilot
                  I am already gone
                  now it's beginning to show

little kid down inside
no longer can hide
you've turned me inside out
I walk on air in your stride

when you winked at me
I could feel the heat
ice cream heart melted away
never found a girl so silly and sweet

I Finally Found You

© 2015 Mark Cote

The words that grew right off of a page
an actor that stepped off of a stage
my walls come tumbling down
finally found you

rose petal I placed out on the sea
a gift to you a gift from me
sea of love will hold us afloat
finally found you

(chorus) I think I finally found you
                  from out of my dreams
                  and out of the blue
                  finally found you
                  and the funny thing is
                  you feel it too
                  finally found you

we'll weather the storms
we'll weather the days
eyes now clearing out of a haze
what you've found in me, I've found in you
finally found you
