Lookin' For The Summer

© 2016 Mark Cote

(chorus) Summer
                     lookin' for the summer
                     lookin' for the summer

summer breeze blows in the air
tell my boss he can find me there
hey girl, let's give up the fight
come with me we can start tonight


back when the music took us away
to a mountain stream or 'Frisco bay
the air was sweet and so were we
we were so young we were so free


but there's no surf out on the sea
without the love of you and me
come on baby let's start again
come on baby and take my hand

Don't Get Me Started

© 2016 Mark Cote

when in the South
well shut your mouth
don't let the good 'ole boys
get to you

when traveling west
do your best
put on your shades
but don't you
look at the sun

(chorus) don't get me started
                  how we departed
                  now the winds will blow
                  wherever I go
                  and now I know
                  now I know
                  just don't get me started

the warmth up north
the heat that you feel
but is it really
what you believe?

into the dark you carry the light
but into the light you carry the night
you can never
run from you


the nightmare
the dream
you can never scream
and willow tears dry
in the sun

I Never Believed It Until You

© 2013 Mark Cote

She was a lady
long midnight hair
and my heart just knew
her smile would take me there

jasmine blossoms
like love it filled the room
my boyhood dreams
were about to come true

(chorus) and I never dreamed..
                  it would happen to me
                  the one I dreamed about
                  is here loving me
                  they can say to you
                  your dreams will come true
                  but I never believed it until you

secretly this love
lived only in my mind
we lived to far
she could never be mine

what I didn't know
was what she thought of me
never underestimate
the power of meant to me

The Things That You Do

© 2016 Mark Cote

wash the stripes from my shirt
take the bars off my heart
how do you do
the things that you do?

the storm clouds away
it's strawberry days
now the skies are blue with
the things that you do

(chorus) and yes it's true
                  the things that you do
                  nobody else
                  compares the wonder of you
                  and it's true
                  yes you
                  with the things
                  with the things
                  the things that you do

put the beat in the song
let it play
all night long
to the tempo of dew
and the things that you do


(spoken bridge) well here we are
                                 dancing head over feet
                                 and I feel that it is like a mirage
                                 when the words taste sweeter
                                 than an ice cream cone
                                 and the dream is growing large
