Well folks, Heather went through the lyrics three times and chose 3 which she then narrowed down to the one that in her words was the most interesting for her.


Thanks to everyone who took part. Happy Christmas to all

God Bless Helen and Roy


So the lyrics she chose were entered by Dottie:


Iím as Gone as T-Rex

The dinosaurs are gone
Come on out of your cave
I tried to keep the flame burning
But thereís nothing left to save
Youíre living in our stone age
Should a known it wouldnít last
We canít build a future
With you digging up my past

Chorus
Iím as gone as T-Rex, honey
You can forget about me
I ainít living in history
Counting rings Ďround petrified trees
Analyze this, Youíre
Foot-lose-and-fancy-free
Iím as gone as T-Rex, honey
You can forget about me

My lifeís been evolving
I thawed out from your Ice Age
Iím walking upright, on two feet
Iíve joined the human race
Like fossils in the rocks
We just didnít make it
Scrutinize it all you want
But, I ainít got to take it

Chorus
Iím as gone as T-Rex, honey
You can forget about me
I ainít living in history
Counting rings Ďround petrified trees
Analyze this, Youíre
Foot-lose-and-fancy-free
Iím as gone as T-Rex, honey
You can forget about me

Aw, donít look so pitiful
Youíll discover fresh bones
My skeletonís out of the closet
So I might as well go home
We werenít meant to be
I should a saw it coming
Like a Neanderthal caveman
I should a took off running

Chorus

Bridge
Itís a crying shame; you canít let go of the past
Like the Jurassic period it wasnít meant to last
Youíll find loveís not something you can extract
And Iím not waiting for another eruption of Deccan Flats

Chorus

Dandelion Wine by Lee Arten

Grandma wrote the recipe in script so clear and round.
Mama typed it for me when I moved out of town.
Lost it once when travelling, had to scribble it again.
Always meant to take the time and make some of my own.

Chorus
Grandma's dandelion wine took a while.
It had a kick and it made folks smile.
Looked like early sunlight pale and yellow.
Tasted like spring, and early summer, in a bottle.

Grandma liked to pick her dandelions in the early dew.
Mama just got 'em when she could draft a kid, or two.
I'd have to take vacation to get my dandelion picking done.
Or just smile and think of Granny, when I see 'em in the lawn.

Spoken
Grandma boiled blossoms, orange and lemon, till it was right.
Then covered up the mixture and let it stand one night.
Strained it through a cloth, put sugar and yeast in to make it go.
In two weeks it was bottled. Then the time moved really slow.
Months and months went by before Grandma poured a single glass.
Grandpa didn't like to wait for all that time to pass.

Chorus.

Last year I decided to have a flower picking meet.
Called Joe and Arnie, and got the girls from up the street.
Picked five buckets full of blossoms, had a fine old time.
Today we opened the first bottle of our own dandelion wine.

Our dandelion wine took a while.
It has a kick and makes us smile.
Looks like early sunlight, pale and yellow.
Tastes like spring, and early summer, in a bottle.
Tastes like spring, and early summer, in a bottle...

"What Should I Think" by coalminer

Verse-1
Every night I hear you talking in your sleep,
Giving up secrets you swear that you don't keep,
You always find it hard to look me in the eyes,
That's how I know you're coming up with clever lies.
Oh, I, What should I think.

CHORUS:

Oh, baby what should I think,
Or I'll just assume the worst on my own,
The only times that I start to think,
Are the times that you leave me alone.

Verse-2
Is there something going on that I don't know,
Looks like something's on your mind you're afraid to show,
A little truth always goes a long way,
You put together all the right words to say.
Oh, I, What should I think.

CHORUS:repeat
BRIDGE:instr.

CHORUS:repeat

She Gets to Ride Her Appaloosa by Kevin Emmrich

(verses)
Sally lives in the city
streets are filthy
she doesn't feel pretty

her chances slim
she won't give in
like her mom did
when she was
just a kid

(chorus)
but at night she dreams
of riding her appaloosa
where no one calls her a loser
because way out west
life's like a 100 percent on a test
and she doesn't worry about the future
because she gets to ride her appaloosa

(verses)
she sees a desert flower
painted on the wall, gotta hurry
it'll be dark in an hour

walking home on 5th
is kinda crazy
the boys all talk
they might be lazy
but their words cut deeper
than a cougar's claws

(chorus again)

(bridge)
the dinner dishes clink like a western dinner bell
she's hurries with the clean-up so her mom won't begin to yell
Miss Thompson says the way out is education
but most here don't make it to graduation
times are tough, wishes aren't enough
even if you have the dedication

(chorus again)

----------------------------

by Vic Arnold 2010

Remember when we first met your smile lit up the stage that I stood on.
Squinting through the gloom I smiled back without knowing who I
smiled upon,
But somewhere, somehow in that darkened room I saw the light that shone my way,
And afterwards I took your hand and we ran off to where our future lay.

These memories of what is done. More of life behind us now than what has yet begun.
Those faded photographs, like autumn leaves,
Of people long forgotten who hide between the pages of our dreams.

(instrumental)

See that nice house on the hill? Can it be the same that we moved in?
Remember how it used to be before we fixed it up good way back then?
We would watch the children grow. It seemed like only yesterday,
And now you smile and close your eyes, I hold your hand and feel you slip away.

These memories of what is done. More of life behind us now than what has yet begun.
Those faded photographs, like autumn leaves,
Of people long forgotten who hide between the pages of our dreams.

ďAn Answer To My PrayerĒ by Lynn Orloff

It used to be..... you needed me
And all the world could see I needed you
We had the kind of love that others would be jealous of
Yet somehow over time, I slipped your heart and mind
But I can wait and I can pray, hopiní youíll come back and say

That you love me, that you need me
That you canít make it through the day without me there
If I could only hear you say those words again
It would be an answer to my prayer

It used to be..... our hearts ran free
And in that freedom I became your choice
But now it seems I live with shattered dreams
Though nothinís goiní right, Iím holdiní on real tight
Down here darliní on my knees, hopiní that youíll say to me

That you love me, that you need me
That you canít make it through the day without me there
If I could only hear you say those words again
It would be an answer to my prayer

Bridge
Iím not gonnaí leave your cominí back to chance
Iíll do the best thing that I can, Iíll put it in Godís hands
And I believe Heíll bring you back though I wonít know the day
But when He does, Iíll know because Iíll hear those words youíll say

That you love me, that you need me
That you canít make it through one day without me there
Oh if I could only hear you say those words again
It would be an answer
It would be the sweetest answer
It would be an answer to my prayer

That you love me (tagline)

A Voice Singing In The Dark by Glynda


Paíd have me take the meals out back
To the lilí shack every day
Lay them at the edge of the door
Knock turn around and be on my way

Iíd often look over my shoulder
To see what I could see
Two gloved hands takin the food back iní
I wanted to know more ,but I had to let this be

Chorus 1
Late into the night
Iíd be awaken by a voice
Singing in the dark
Iíd hang out over my window sill
Tried to see where the singing
Was coming from, but stillÖÖ..
Never could see a thing
Just a voice singing in the dark

For as long as I can remember
This is what was doneí
From the first break of dawn
Before the fall of the evening sun

I carried that food out back
Go and pick up the empty dishes
I oftened wondered what was pa hiding
But I knew better than to go against his wishes

Chorus 2
Pa was gone to town one day
I heard a loud thump, then a scream
I ran outside, half way out the doorway
A little oleí man was lying there
Face down in in the dirt
Scared to death, I said a prayer
This was the man that belonged to
The voice singing in the dark

His chest began to hurt so he came outside for help, .collapsed outside the doorÖ. Heíd been badly burned in the coal mines ,didnít want no one to see him no more. We got him to the hospital just in time

When he came home I too became his friend and late at night IĎd smile when IĎd hearÖA Voice Singing In The Dark

Didnít See It Coming by DonnaMarilyn

V1
Went out of my way
Doing all I could
Making sure you were happy
And that things were good

V2
So when you confessed
You'd been with her last night
It knocked me for a loop
ĎCause it plain wasnít right

Chorus
Know what, babe, I didnít see it coming
When I fell for you
I should have hit the ground running
You were having me on
Now everything's gone
Yeah I didnít see it coming

V3
Iím shaking my head
About what just happened
It's hard not to feel
Confused and abandoned

V4
But canít help thinking
You wish youíd been true
ĎCause the pain in your eyes
Says ĎI still love youí

Chorus
Know what, babe, I didnít see it coming
When I fell for you
I should have hit the ground running
You were having me on
Now everything's gone
Yeah I didnít see it coming

Bridge
Here we sit at the kitchen table
I know you hope I wonít be able
To speak the words you see in my eyes
But you can see whatís coming, itís no surprise

Chorus
Know what, babe, I didnít see it coming
When I fell for you
I should have hit the ground running
You were having me on
Now everything's gone
Yeah I didnít see it coming

Outro
Now everything's gone
Yeah we didn't see it coming

A Place To Come Back To (c)2010 Greg C. Brown


I can't tell what you're thinking,
There was once a time I could.
You never had to say it,
I always understood.
And I could sense your feelings
As though I could read your mind.
But lately I don't know you
Even after all this time.

I think you've gotten restless,
Maybe lost out on some dreams.
Are there things that you've been missing,
Or places you've not seen?
It shouldn't be surprising,
As I wait each night alone,
That you've become this stranger
I have never really known.

CHORUS
If you're looking for that greener pasture,
I can only wish my very best for you.
I hope you find what it is you're after,
But if you don't, you know that's okay too,
'Cause you'll always have a place to come back to.

We went through changing seasons
While we shared a single soul.
All the storms that we have weathered,
I thought would keep us whole.
But somehow things are different,
Yet I almost never saw
The signals you were sending,
Or the writing on the wall.

CHORUS
If you're looking for that greener pasture,
I can only wish my very best for you.
I hope you find what it is you're after,
But if you don't, you know that's okay too,
'Cause you'll always have a place to come back to.

BRIDGE
I won't let my teardrops fall
Over what I thought we had.
I won't hold you with emotions,
I'll just wish you luck instead.

REPEAT CHORUS
If you're looking for that proverbial greener pasture...
I can only wish my very best for you.
I hope you find what it is you're after,
But if you don't, you know that's okay too,
'Cause you'll always have a place to come back to.

You'll always have a place to come back to.

HE RIDES by Ricki E. Bellos

Daddy came from a broken home
Shattered hearts and fractured bones
Just a matter of time before heíd move on down the line
Worked real hard to buy his first bike
Cherry red with loud straight pipes
Left without warning on a sunny Sunday morning
Knew heíd never be sorry
Just him and his Harley

He rides
Out of the blue into Mamaís life
He rides

Mama said when he rode to town
Made her weak and her young heart pound
It didnít take them long though her pa said it was wrong
Sheíd wrap herself around him tight
Holding on with all her might
Loved to ride behind him with loving arms to hold him
Never said heíd stay
But made it to my tenth birthday

He rides, he rides
Into the night out of our lives
He rides
My Daddy rides
He rides

I think about him more and more
Wondering what he left us for
Mama said as she died I had his likeness in my eyes
Now I have a child of my own
Who holds me in this one horse town
Dreamed I followed in his steps and headed for the west
I still have this photograph
Of the bike, them and me in his lap

I ride, I ride
Just ahead of the storm for the rest of my life
I ride
Watch me ride
I ride

Wonder if Mama would have felt the same
If Daddy rode up in a pickup truck

When she finally gets to dance


As a child she watched Fred Astaire movies on TV
She would dance with him everynight but only in her dreams
And dreams are as real as the love you feel
When you're only 9 -years old

When she finally gets to dance
I hope he sweeps her off her feet
I hope he spins her 'round the ol' dance floor
And makes her life complete
When she finally gets to dance

Later on she learned that boys can be sometimes cruel and mean
At the prom she danced the night away but only in her dreams
'Cause dreams are as real as the love you feel
When you're almost seventeen

When she finally gets to dance
I hope he sweeps her off her feet
I hope he spins her 'round the ol' dance floor
And makes her life complete
When she finally gets to dance

A little conversation, a drink and a dance
A little human affection, is that too much to ask?

As the years roll by their weight has left scars that were not there
When she was only 9 years old and dreamt of Fred Astaire
But dreams are as real as the love you feel
When you're pushing thirty-four

When she finally gets to dance
I hope he sweeps her off her feet
I hope he spins her 'round the ol' dance floor
And makes her life complete
When she finally gets to dance

Just A Slice

When the mercury dips below
The no kissing zone
And I'm holding my own hand
Cause I'm so alone

And I'm convinved I'll never know
Happiness again
The saddest movie ever made
Just won't seem to end

CHORUS....
I'm not asking for the moon
Just a slice
Some tender " I love you's "
Would be nice

I've waited for my lover but
She don't come around
I guess the one that loves me is
No where to be found

CHORUS....
I'm not asking for the moon
Just a slice
Some tender " I love you's "
Would be nice

Instrumental break...

Bridge.....
Everybody want's to go to sleep smiling
No one ever wants to cry

CHORUS....
I'm not asking for the moon
Just a slice
Some tender " I love you's "
Would be nice

I'm not asking for the moon
Just a slice
I'm not asking for the moon
Just a slice

I Don't Know You Anymore by Linda Adams


When you were small
And life was easy
Your biggest problems all could be
Wiped away by me

With just one kiss
But that was long ago
Now you know just how much I don't know
And time won't slow

CHORUS:
Now it seems
I don't know you anymore
Who's this stranger pacing 'cross my floor
Flying angry out the door
And I can't make it better
With kisses, cards, or letters
I don't know what to do
But how I miss that little boy I knew

2
When you were small
Your heart was tender
Is it still buried in you somewhere
Waiting on a prayer

Are you still there?
Where's the smile I knew?
It seems all we ever do is argue
About the rules

CHORUS

This isn't a little game we're playin'
No one has to lose
All my love is always stayin'
Here with you

Even if it seems -
(CH)

I still love you
I love you.

See That Hillbilly by songcabinet

See that Hillbilly
Comin' down the chimney
He's all dressed up in fancy clothes
Wonder if it's Jimmy
Narh, he's too skinny
So, it's probably my ol' Uncle Joe
What's with the sack
Must be somethin' with my sight
I saw Reindeers and a sleigh
On my roof top tonight

See that Hillbilly
Comin' down the chimney
Wonder if he brought something we could eat
Hopin' for some Mexican Chili
Or steaks, so we can grill'em
But, if I know him right, we're not in for a treat
Hey, you don't look like Joe
Noo, I don't have milk and jelly rolls
Tell me, what are those deers doing
Up there on my roof?

Whoo, he jumped right back up
And left a package, wrapped up in some shiny stuff
Looks like bells and kids in the snow
Hmm, that reminds me of something I once was told
Back when I was a baby 'billy
It slowly comes back to me now
My dad said, "Sunny"

See that Hillbilly
Comin' down the chimney
Whaddayaknow he came back again this year
You can call him Willie
Or something more fulfilling
But I don't want to hear no silly Christmas tales
If what we are is Country
You better get it right, Sunny
Those Reindeers are nothin' but fillies
And that big man with the beard
Is nothin' but a Hillbilly, down here

Lyrics submission15



Iím as Gone as T-Rex by Dottie

The dinosaurs are gone
Come on out of your cave
I tried to keep the flame burning
But thereís nothing left to save
Youíre living in our stone age
Should a known it wouldnít last
We canít build a future
With you digging up my past

Chorus
Iím as gone as T-Rex, honey
You can forget about me
I ainít living in history
Counting rings Ďround petrified trees
Analyze this, Youíre
Foot-lose-and-fancy-free
Iím as gone as T-Rex, honey
You can forget about me

My lifeís been evolving
I thawed out from your Ice Age
Iím walking upright, on two feet
Iíve joined the human race
Like fossils in the rocks
We just didnít make it
Scrutinize it all you want
But, I ainít got to take it

Chorus
Iím as gone as T-Rex, honey
You can forget about me
I ainít living in history
Counting rings Ďround petrified trees
Analyze this, Youíre
Foot-lose-and-fancy-free
Iím as gone as T-Rex, honey
You can forget about me

Aw, donít look so pitiful
Youíll discover fresh bones
My skeletonís out of the closet
So I might as well go home
We werenít meant to be
I should a saw it coming
Like a Neanderthal caveman
I should a took off running

Chorus

Bridge
Itís a crying shame; you canít let go of the past
Like the Jurassic period it wasnít meant to last
Youíll find loveís not something you can extract
And Iím not waiting for another eruption of Deccan Flats

Chorus

Lyrics submission16



A Little Too Long by Colin Ward


V1
We've been friends since we were kids,
And I never thought much about you 'n me,
All through school you were hangin' around,
You were just the boy from down the street

V2
I started to notice when you grew up,
You turned into a man with style,
Good thing I paid attention 'cause I could have lost out,
And missed you by a country mile

Rise
On a perfect day I saw you in the park,
When you took my hand I felt the first spark

Chorus
With a hug just a little too long,
And a kiss that knocked me off my feet,
Saw that look in your eyes, and I realized,
You're the one I'm gonna keep

V3
You weren't my high school sweetheart,
You never asked me to dance,
Now we're in our prime, don't wanna waste time,
We're ready for a little romance

Rise
Falling for you may seem a bit strange,
I had some growing up to do, guess I've changed

Chorus
With a hug just a little too long,
And a kiss that knocked me off my feet,
Saw that look in your eyes, and I realized,
You're the one I'm gonna keep


Bridge
Why aren't you taken, I really don't know,
Better capture your heart, won't be moving too slow

Chorus

Lyrics submission17



Run To Me (c)2010 Rod Coleman


Upbeat tempo

Lost in our teenage days
Thinkin' we were cool
Kissin' in my pick-up truck
Parked behind the school
Talkin' 'bout the future
All those crazy dreams
Tried to figure out our lives
And laughed at everything

(run to me, run to me)

vs
I've wanted to tell you
For such a long time
A day doesn't go by
You're not on my mind
Didn't say to make things better
But couldn't let it go
Cause' I've loved you forever
And should have told you so

(run to me, run to me)

(Chorus)
Run to me, when the world is undone
Run to me, when you need a place to run
When those tears clear your eyes enough to see,
Run to me

vs
Life's so complicated
Not easy as it seemed
Only thing that's never changed
I want you here with me
We both made some choices
Messed up what we planned
Run into these open arms
And we'll start over again

(run to me, run to me)

(Chorus)

"TAKE A DEEP BREATH" Lyrics (C) 2010 by Stan Good, BMI


Too-Often Life is Movin' at a Break-Neck Faster Pace
I Believe the First Time..was When I Saw His Face
Wanted to Run Right-Up to Him..Be His "Forever-Fool"
But I Had Learned The Hard Way..There IS One Simple Rule:

(CHORUS)
"TAKE A DEEP BREATH"
Yeah, SLOW-Things-DOWN!
Pause..And REFLECT-A-BIT
To SEE What's Goin'-ROUND!
"TAKE A DEEP BREATH"
Ya Need Some OXYGEN, My Friend
Then..When You Have THOUGHT-a-BIT
GO-AHEAD and PLUNGE RIGHT-IN! {Alt: JUMP}

I Remember Well..Back When We Thought..We Both WANTED KIDS
Glad for ALL Those EXTRA Years We PONDERED What We DID~
For Years NO Little-Feet-PATTERED..'Cuz We Kept-It-COOL
'Got to Know OURSELVES Lots-BETTER..Before DIAPERS-SHOES-&-SCHOOL!

So..(REPEAT CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
BE CAREFUL What-You-WISH-FOR..
You'll GET IT, Given-TIME!
ENJOY The ROUTE, Along The WAY
The RUSH is IN Your MIND!

(SOLO TIME)

{OPTIONAL VERSE}
Over Every Lifetime You'll Hear SCHEMES to Make You RICH
SOME of Them ARE Real..But MOST are Just a B---TCH~
IF You Dig REAL Deeply, MOST('ll) Scare You Half-to-DEATH
So, Before You Spend a CENT, TAKE a REAL DEEP BREATH...

Yeah..(REPEAT CHORUS)

(TAG)
Yeah, Give It ALL Some DEEPER-THOUGHT..
BEFORE You PLUNGE RIGHT-IN!!--

Roy, Have you a link to any of Heather's demos so we can hear what she sounds like and what style she sings? I might submit a lyric if I have anything that fits her.

Well folks, Heather went through the lyrics three times and chose 3 which she then narrowed down to the one that in her words was the most interesting for her.


Thanks to everyone who took part. Happy Christmas to all

God Bless Helen and Roy


So the lyrics she chose were entered by Dottie:


Iím as Gone as T-Rex

The dinosaurs are gone
Come on out of your cave
I tried to keep the flame burning
But thereís nothing left to save
Youíre living in our stone age
Should a known it wouldnít last
