the writing on the wall will reach out
if it breathes a hint of doubt
when you feel a little weak
and your dream begins to weep
Oh oh uncertainty

it doesn't take it very long
to shake up right and wrong
not based on reality
just on what won't or what will be
Oh oh uncertainty

(chorus) swirling
                  old memories
                  oh oh uncertainty

nervous rippling thoughts
turn to waves of what is nots
if you give a second glance
or give it a chance
oh oh uncertainty

I Can't Be Alone After The Fall

© 2013 Mark Cote

Hello Mr. heartbreak haven't seen you in a while
I see your kind never goes out of style
we met so many years ago
to the tune of a slamming door

I could tell you about it but you wrote the book
the how I should feel the how I should look
you're not the one I want around
not many choices in a one horse town

pull me up
give me hope
toss me a line
sing to me
play for me
or I bleed in this wine

(chorus) I might drown in this drink
                  the more I swim the more I sink
                  the music I play may make me deaf
                  thoughts of love and the day it left
                  spinning like a leaf out in the fall
                  I can't be alone after the fall

alone in thoughts of roads I've been on
the years I have traveled the miles are now gone
the yesterdays are in each tear
the empty nights are always here


pull me up
give me hope
toss me a line
sing to me
play for me
or I bleed in this wine

You And Me

© 2017 Mark Cote

we were young
we were strung
on what love could be

never knew
years they grew
I didn't know you you didn't know me

in the stir
of where you were
I was a mystery

in my calm
of the dawn
wondered who I might meet

(chorus) and now....
                  it's you and me (you and me)
                  and all the world to see
                  we both found the key
                  that led us over to
                  you and me
                  we could never foresee
                  I'd end up with you
                  you'd end up with me

here we are
under the stars
that drew you to me

and to the moon
knew it too
brought me to you

fate takes time
and now we find
we feel complete

to the tune of love
through push and shove
two hearts meet

New York

New York
whatcha got for me
is it more
so much more
than I thought I'd see

I said New York (New York)
take me there
let the crazy ones
stop and stare

(chorus) I just got to move
                  I just got to groove
                  where they really know how to get down

New York
keep the pace
let's run all night
in this race

I said New York (New York)
come on down
from the uptown girls
to the boys downtown


New York
you've got that beat
lift you up
out of your seat

I said New York (New York)
let's get drunk
on your funk

take me away
take me away
take me away

New York
shuffle down Broadway
and on Times Square
and everywhere
let the funk take you away
