Just One Command

JUST ONE COMMAND - Written by Carroll Bryant


This is my secret
When I look into your eyes I have to look away
There's no telling how far I could fall
There's no telling what I might say

My heart stands before your spirit
I hear the whispers of the night
I try to run while they talk to me
I try to run before I die

In the fight that is your love
Give to me just one command
Let me prove to you my memory
Beg for mercy for this man

You know I want you to hurt me
This I can't deny
My pain seems to bring you pleasure
So tell me one more lie 

More than what it can be measured
This life gives me everything its got
My heart is buried treasure
Really
No
Really not

I listen to the whispers 
I know I've said it all before
I try to run but then I never
Even get to make it to the door

In the fight that is your love
Give to me just one command
Let me prove to you my misery
Beg for mercy for this man

I want you to own me
Like you would a broken toy
Put me on layaway 
Two batteries and enjoy

I swear I never saw you coming
Not even in the nick of time
I didn't want to move a mountain
Or trade a dollar for a dime

In the death of a stranger 
The danger is always lurking in the dark
I have no long lost relations
Only a time bomb for a heart

In the fight that is your love
Give to me just one command
Let me prove to you my machinery 
Beg for mercy for this man

You can be my slave in exchange you take my grave
You take my place
The old switch-a-roo
Tit for tat and me for you

Soon the waters will cover the entire earth
I sure hope you grow some fins
Or learn how to swim
I can breathe underwater
I can do it now because I did it then

In the fight that is your love
Give to me just one command
Let me prove to you my mockery 
Beg for mercy for this man

In the fight that is your freedom
Let me be more than your friend
Now you may beg for my mercy
Or give to me just one command

Pearl

PEARL - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Could you love me just as I am?
Not as a mortal
Not as Superman
Could you just enjoy being with me?
And not with the fashion
And not just the money

All I ever wanted was to be your friend
In all of my troubled times 
Just to hold your hand 
Open up your arms and feel the wind in your face
Feel the touch of my skin
Take a look at this place
A castle is what I live in
Here I am the king
To live without your love
Everything means nothing to me 

I don't do the things I do to impress your eyes
Who I am comes naturally 
Why do you look so surprised?

All I thought I could find in you was something I lost long ago
Everything I ever forgotten was something I didn't want to know
Open up your arms and feel the wind in your face
Feel the touch of my skin
Take a look at this place
A castle is what I live in
Here I am the king
To live without your love
Everything means nothing to me 

You are the girl 
A priceless pearl
Not fools gold as some have claimed
The prettiest eyes 
That dance in the night
Of all of my fantasies
You are my world
Not a diamond, but a pearl
A pirate's fateful dream 

I don't do the things I do to impress your eyes
Who I am comes naturally 
Why do you look so surprised?

All I ever wanted was to be your friend
In all of my troubled times 
Just to hold your hand 
Open up your arms and feel the wind in your face
Feel the touch of my skin
Take a look at this place
A castle is what I live in
Here I am the king
To live without your love
Everything means nothing to me 

And nothing means everything to me

The Desperate Woman

THE DESPERATE WOMAN - Written by Carroll Bryant


You look at me
I look away
I don't think that there's anything more to say
You are the life of the party
And I am the one who wants to leave

You touch my arm
I slap your face
I do believe that you like it that way
You are the one who is lonely
And I am the one who won't believe

And you're a desperate woman tonight
Looking for a desperate man
Why you holding on so tight?
I'm not the man that you think I am
You're a desperate woman tonight
I can see it in your eyes
Don't look now but the party is over
For me
Time to say goodbye

You try to play the game
I make the rules
I'm not your average guy or next door fool
Gullible is as gullible does
Dreams push you to fall in love

And you're a desperate woman tonight
Looking for a desperate man
Why you holding on so tight?
I'm not the man that you think I am
You're a desperate woman tonight
I can see it in your eyes
Don't look now but the party is over
For me
Time to say goodbye

What do you fear?
Is it loneliness?
I'm not interested dear
And I am serious 
You're spilling your drink all over the floor
And I don't wanna talk to you no more

You look at me 
I look away
You touch my arm
I slap your face

You look at me

You're a desperate woman tonight
Looking for a desperate man
Why you holding on so tight?
I'm not the man that you think I am
You're a desperate woman tonight
I can see it in your eyes
Don't look now but the party is over
For me
Time to say goodbye

Have a very good night
