In Love, In Danger

IN LOVE, IN DANGER - Written by Carroll Bryant



It's a cookie cutter world
When you look at me that way
I can't complain
And yet I still do
I try to get away with it, I confess
I admit nothing of truth
 
Don't make this into your fantasy
Don't turn it into another Broadway play
 
And I fall - in deep - in love, in danger
My heart is a stranger
I fall - asleep - in love, in danger
My heart is a stranger to it
 
You - and the mirror loses its reflection
My life is a rejection and jaded
I force my mind to pretend I'm always on vacation
I'm trying to get away with it
I concede it's so full of shit
 
Don't make this into a song of seduction
Don't turn it into another under construction 
 
And I fall - in deep - in love, in danger
My heart is a stranger
I fall - asleep - in love, in danger
My heart is a stranger to - you
 
It's a cookie cutter world
When you look at me that way
You always look at me that way
I can't complain
And yet I still do
I try to get away with it, I confess
I admit nothing of the truth
 
Don't make this into your fantasy
Don't turn it into another Broadway play
 
And I fall - in deep - in love, in danger
My heart is a stranger
I fall - asleep - in love, in danger
My heart is a stranger to it
 
And I fall - in deep - in love, in danger
My heart is a stranger
I fall - asleep - in love, in danger
My heart is a stranger to - you
 
And I fall - in deep - until I can't sleep
You know that I can't sleep
I can never sleep without you

My Beautiful Little Girl

MY BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL - Written by Carroll Bryant


Give me just a moment of your time
I hear you've been saying that I have lost my mind
Maybe you're exaggerating or maybe it's true
Just remember I had you in your youth


Now you live in another place of the world
While I sit here waiting for you my beautiful ocean pearl
Feeling so desperate and isolated for sure
You were pure


So come back to me my beautiful little girl
I play in my memories too much
It's complicated when you think you've lost touch


Maybe I'm an idiot savant
You threw away all the things I could ever want
Now you live in another place of the world
While I sit here waiting for you my beautiful ocean pearl
Feeling so desperate and isolated for sure
You were pure


So come back to me my beautiful little girl
Give me just another taste of your love
Something more substantial than a hug


Dreaming in the middle of the longest night
That everything is Teddy Bear, and it will be alright
Now you live in another place of the world
While I sit here waiting for you my beautiful ocean pearl
Feeling so desperate and isolated for sure
You were pure


So come back to me my beautiful little girl
Now you live in another place of the world
While I sit here waiting for you my beautiful ocean pearl
Feeling so desperate and isolated for sure
You were pure


So come back to me my beautiful little girl
Come back home to me my beautiful little girl
My beautiful little girl
My beautiful ocean pearl

Are You Happy Now?

ARE YOU HAPPY NOW? - Written by Carroll Bryant
 
 
 
Nobody cares for you more than I do
Girl, you mean everything to me
But you question my heart, my love, like I'm a fool
You can be really mean
 
What am I to make when you look at me that way?
You're breaking my heart with the things that you say
 
Are you happy now?
Are you winning the war with the games that you play?
Are you happy now?
Throwing me up or down or away?
Are you happy now?
How many times are you gonna leave me?
 
Nobody loves you like I really want to
Girl, you're my Disney dream inside a fantasy
But you smother my thoughts, my hopes, like a tool
You can really be so very obscene
 
Where am I to run when you point at me your gun?
I try to enjoy myself but you ain't no fun
 
Are you happy now?
Are you winning the war with the games that you play?
Are you happy now?
Throwing me up or down or away?
Are you happy now?
How many times are you gonna leave me?
 
Are you happy now?
Are you winning the war with the games that you play?
Are you happy now?
Throwing me up or down or away?
Are you happy now?
How many times are you gonna leave me?
 
I want to keep you here forever
Hold you so close
Never let you wither away
Never let you go
 
Never let you see me cry
 
Nobody cares for you more than I do
Girl, you mean everything to me
But you question my heart, my love, like I'm a fool
You can be really mean
 
What am I to make when you look at me that way?
You're breaking my heart with the things that you say
 
Are you happy now?
Are you winning the war with the games that you play?
Are you happy now?
Throwing me up or down or away?
Are you happy now?
How many times are you gonna leave me?
 
Are you happy now?
Are you winning the war with the games that you play?
Are you happy now?
Throwing me up or down or away?
Are you happy now?
How many times are you gonna leave me?
