High Road Out Of Low Down



© 2013 Mark Cote

black cat pawing my feet in the autumn
feeling the lead in my shoes on the bottom
whatcha gonna do

yesterday winds of forgotten sorrow
keep holding me back from a brighter tomorow
whatcha gonna do

(chorus) I'm taking the high road out of the low downs
                  winding my way through this silent ghost town
                  belief in myself there can be no rebounds
                  taking what I have left
                  and what I've found

Looking around through all of the zombies
knowing that darkness is what they all want me.. to
want me to do

(chorus)

(bridge) crossing that thin red line
                  and looking up at the sky
                  looking down deep inside
                  was the only way I could grow
                  so tell me the things that you don't know
                  and fear the places I might go
                  you're afraid of what you could be
                  but baby that ain't me..

the ones who will choose to look around for me
the ones who chose to leave here before me..know
know where their gonna go

(chorus)

Lamp Post


© 2018 Mark Cote

lamp post
watching the world go by
never wondering
where or why
does it matter
there's never chatter

lamp post
what will you pay
how much of yourself
do you give you away
does it really matter
if I'm thin or get fatter

(chorus) Shine...
                  through the days and the nights
                  when nothing in this world
                  is seeming right
                  lamp post shining bright
                  in your silence you come off as cold
                  but inside you really are bold
                  shine on
                  lamp post
                  lamp post shine on and on

lamp post
how will you feel
when your reality
comes from a dream
will it even matter
in the here or ever after

shine on....

(instrumental)
(chorus)

In Her Whisper



© 2018 Mark Cote

I knew there had to be someone
who knew exactly how I felt
when you play by the rules
you don't always win

seeing it all in a different way
a whole 'nother point of view
love doesn't play by the rules
it just starts to begin

Chorus) in her whisper
                 she's calling my name
                 in her whisper
                 I'm feeling the flame
                 when I wonder where her heart is
                 I already know
                 in her whisper is where I will go

firefly kiss on a summer night
sparks of static in the chill of daylight
we may never know
it just comes from within

(chorus)
