riding all the way
down sunny roads and where they stray
then a call comes on the phone
asking if you can or will be home

(chorus) Him
                  playing 2nd fiddle to him
                  is putting me out on a limb
                  I'm just holding on
                  maybe 'til the dawn
                  while she is out with

known you more than I
is this the vibe that now implies
when your defensive side shows
will I be the one who goes?

Not feeling too well
needing you there by his side
as down this road that I ride
I bid a farewell to you and..

What if blue ridge hills hide sunny skies
and tear-stained sad hide happy eyes
oh, you know my feet never hit the ground
when thoughts of you start coming around
oh oh Nightingale

the sea breeze chills that fill the air
is not so cold when you are there
a long road this path we're on
from our shadows grows a brand new dawn

(chorus) Nightingale....
                  do you think of me like I think of you
                  do you feel my love
                  when you're feeling blue
                  through the storm
                  our love prevails
                  oh oh Nightingale

to give our hearts just one more try
when the hurt and pain made us want to cry
I can see the spark left within your eyes
I hope you see the same in mine


so walk the sands here by my side
we'll ride the waves we'll dance the tides
for now our search has reached an end
to you my life I do depend

More Than Myself

© 2013 Mark Cote

(chorus) I wanna be
                  wanna be
                  more than myself
                  don't wanna be
                  wanna be
                  somebody else
                  walk a little farther
                  dream a little harder
                  more than myself
                  I wanna be
                  wanna be
                  more than myself
                  don't wanna be
                  wanna be
                  somebody else
                  believe in a power
                  that's more than I felt
                  I wanna be
                  wanna be
                  more than myself

the same footprints
they've all walked before
the dreams that we have
are not for sure
but it's all we have

some have the drive
to get up and go
some they say
will never know
but what do they have


unaware the cycle
goes round and round
stealing our lives
without making a sound
if we knew what we have

Meet Me in A Song

© 2018 Mark Cote

through the push and shove
and the sound all around
one thing stays true
how I feel for you
and two hearts beat

under the stars above
that drew you to me
the man in the moon
knew it too
brought me to you

(chorus) when I must be gone
                  meet me in a song
                  out where we belong
                  it will help you to be strong
                  meet me in a song

through the tune of love
hidden in a word
someplace between
flowing unseen
is music to you
