Almost Love Song

© 2017 Mark Cote

kisses won't stick
lipstick too thick
and the sunset has gone
in an almost love song

the feeling can come and go
sometimes you never know
where butterflies belong
in an almost love song

(chorus) hey there runaway bride
                  where do you hide
                  in an almost love song
                  can I make you mine
                  I'd gather stars into jars
                  and give them to you
                  what would I find
                  that's what I'd do
                  what should I do
                  in this almost love song

heart don't pretend
this won't be the end
remember to stay strong
for an almost love song

everything will be fine
just give it some time
but I don't know what time it is
in this almost love song

The Disintegration Of Man

© 2017 Mark Cote

You love the money
you love to control
but who will be around
when you get old

you sold your soul
to corporate gold
but who's hand
does it really hold?

(chorus) Is this the disintegration of man?
                  when imagination melts into the sand
                  when all you've felt is all you know
                  is this the disintegration of man?

you eat the words
that are fed to you
does it make you sick
does it make you blue

it changes you
from who I knew
vivid colors
now transparent hues


when the dream of what you want
turns to who you are
a piece of you is lost
so very far
we don't know
who we are

She's As Good As Gone To Me

© 2017 Mark Cote

somewhere in Milwaukee
it could’ve been June
when we shot for the stars
but lassoed the moon

while I gave it my best
she still wanted more
we'd smile and we'd laugh
but I still was unsure

(chorus) sitting in the moonlight
                  waiting on the sun
                  wondering where on it was
                  that she came undone
                  though to the world
                  a couple's what they see
                  she's as good as gone to me
                  although it's not the way I thought it would be
                  she's as good as gone to me

into her eyes
the mirrors they shine
but behind the glass
something's un-twined

should we follow this path
and just close our eyes
or separate paths
and just say goodbye


she says we're drifting apart
but was she even there
as a shooting star falls
I sit and stare

Pardon Me Miss

© 2017 Mark Cote

Pardon me miss
I saw you dancing in my dreams
I'll tell you this
It's as crazy as it seems

(chorus) but if it gives you the wrong impression
                  I'll turn it in another direction
                  all I can say is this
                  I pardon you miss

Pardon me miss
I saw forever in your eyes
I can't dismiss
I hope you realize


pardon me miss
I hope I'm not out of line
am I remiss
but you seem so very fine

how about a twist
she was dreaming of me too
I couldn't resist
that was something I never knew
