Where In The World?

WHERE IN THE WORLD? - Written by Carroll Bryant



Love can hang by a thread
Visions of us keep dancing in my head
Love can dangle from a heart
Flames that can engulf us
Never get enough of
This that’s coming up is my favorite part
 
You said you were so involved
With every single thought I had
Good for you to make me sad
 
You said you were feeling gratified
I never meant for you to go
What I thought I didn’t know
 
Where in the world did you mean to take me?
Why did you have to break me?
I would have gone anywhere that you would have wanted me
Why in the world did you have to forsake me?
Why did you have to make me want so much to forget about you?
 
Pain surrenders to the soul
Versions of us seem to always come and go
Pain can dizzy up the past
Fires that will burn us
Ashes in the aftermath
This that’s coming up is my favorite laugh
 
You said you were so sensitive
With every single thing I said
Life is for the true undead
 
You said you were never leaving
I didn’t think that you would stay
Good for me you went away
 
Where in the world did you mean to take me?
Why did you have to break me?
I would have gone anywhere that you would have wanted me
Why in the world did you have to forsake me?
Why did you have to make me want so much to forget about you?
 
Maybe I didn’t see what was coming
You were planning your get-away
While I was looking the other way
 
Maybe I didn’t know what you were proving
Everything you did to me
Was splashed across the pages of your blog
 
 
 
Love can hang by a thread
Visions of us keep dancing in my head
They keep dancing in my head
They keep tearing me apart
 
Where in the world did you mean to take me?
Why did you have to break me?
I would have gone anywhere that you would have wanted me
Why in the world did you have to forsake me?
Why did you have to make me want so much to forget about you?
 
Where in the world did you mean to take me?
Why did you have to break me?
I would have gone anywhere that you would have wanted me
Why in the world did you have to forsake me?
Why did you have to make me want so much to forget about you?
Want so much to forget about you?
I want so much to forget about you
 
Where in the world did you mean to take me?
Why did you have to break me?
Hell is where you left me
Time for me to forget about you

The Devil's Bed

THE DEVIL'S BED - Written by Carroll Bryant
 
 
You can’t seem to comfort all my pain
Your tears pour down like a Mississippi rain
I can hear the hounds of hell call out
Never understanding your love or what it’s all about
 
I’m sleeping in the devils bed tonight
Trying  hard to get this feeling right
When I left you standing there I almost went out of my mind
Now I find I’m sleeping … in the devil’s bed tonight
 
I know I’m selfish and I get eaten up with pride
Can’t be persuaded by the helpless look in your eyes
I squeezed the breath right from your beating heart
Never understanding your love or how it even started
 
I’m sleeping in the devils bed tonight
Trying hard to get this feeling right
When I left you standing there I almost went out of my mind
Now I find I’m sleeping … in the devil’s bed tonight
 
I can see the lightning as it strikes across the sky
The thunder shakes my senses to the moment I might die
I look inside the diamond that hides behind your life
I can’t see a goddamn thing except memories that we both know have died
 
Our memories have died
 
You can’t seem to comfort all my pain
Your tears pour down like a Mississippi rain
I can hear the hounds of hell call out
Never understanding your love or what it’s all about
 
I’m sleeping in the devils bed tonight
Trying  hard to get this feeling right
When I left you standing there I almost went out of my mind
Now I find I’m sleeping … in the devil’s bed tonight

Desperate Hearts

DESPERATE HEARTS - Written by Carroll Bryant


Looking in my eyes, can’t you see my desperation?
Sweating all night between the sheets in a bed of perspiration
Thinking about love, and wondering how it could be
Reaching out to touch, and wishing that you were here with me

Desperate hearts, filled with desire
Burning all night by the light of the flame of the fire
Running for my life, I got to finish what I start
Holding on tight to the hopes of love with a desperate heart

Looking in your eyes, I can see that you’re screaming
Tired from the fight that you had last night with your demons
Swimming in the pain, of loves sweet misery
Calling out the name, of the one you want to meet

Desperate hearts, filled with desire
Burning all night by the light of the flame of the fire
Running for your life, you got to finish what you start
Holding on tight to the hopes of love with a desperate heart

Do you count your dreams as they pass you by?
Can you count the stars as they twinkle in the sky?
If you knew the truth could you live a lie?
No excuses ……… No reason why

Looking in our eyes, they can see all the passion
Flying on a plane that catches fire and soon it will be crashing
Maybe we’re in love, or maybe we’re both just fools
Maybe it’s enough, or maybe there’s nothing else to do

Desperate hearts, filled with desire
Burning all night by the light of the flame of the fire
Running for our lives, we got to finish what we start
Holding on tight to the hopes of love with a desperate heart

Holding on tight to the hopes of love … with a desperate heart

Love Paradise

LOVE PARADISE - Written by Carroll Bryant
 
 
You have to exercise your right to fall so deep in love
When you know that you can’t hide
Or just can’t get enough
It’s like a sweet cookie surprise
Filled with double stuff inside
 
And the more you hesitate
The longer you must wait
The more you walk away
The less your heart can play
It can be a funny ride
Until you hear somebody say
How they feel inside
 
Welcome to love paradise
 
It’s like getting lost inside a sleepy little town
It’s like everywhere you go you can’t get around
It’s like getting up too high then falling to the ground
And you can’t find your way
No you can’t find your way back out
 
Welcome to love paradise
 
You have to evaporate your tears
To get where you want to be
You have to stand and face your fears
So close that you can’t see
All the goodness in her eyes
Until you realize
 
That the more you make her wait
The longer it will take
To go outside and play
The less time flies away
You can seek or you can hide
It’s the truth you can’t deny
 
Welcome to love paradise
 
It’s like getting lost inside a sleepy little town
It’s like everywhere you go you can’t get around
It’s like getting up too high then falling to the ground
And you can’t find your way
No you can’t find your way back out
 
Welcome to love paradise
And the more you hesitate
The longer you must wait
The more you walk away
The less your heart can play
It can be a funny ride
Until you hear somebody say
How they feel inside
 
Welcome to love paradise
 
It’s like getting lost inside a sleepy little town
It’s like everywhere you go you can’t get around
It’s like getting up too high then falling to the ground
And you can’t find your way
No you can’t find your way back out
 
Welcome to love paradise

Can't Say No

CAN'T SAY NO - Written by Carroll Bryant




I saw you in a bar last night with another man
You were dancing oh, so close to him
And tonight you dare to ask me to take you back in
I was your fool one time, ain’t that enough?
So don’t play with my mind, girl if it ain’t love
‘Cause I can’t say no … no … no matter how I try
I can’t deny my heart    ( My love is true )
I can’t say no … no … no matter what you do
I just can’t say no to you
It seems I can remember how you did me wrong
Leaving me with memories all night long
And tonight you care to tell me you wanna come back home
You broke my heart last time, when I took you in
So I’m begging you now, don’t do it again
‘Cause I can’t say no … no … no matter how I try
I can’t deny my heart  ( My love is true )
I can’t say no … no … no matter what you do
I just can’t say no to you
Love can be a mountain and oh so hard to climb
There’s no easy answer that the heart can ever find
Love should be a two way street so, why does it pass me by?
All I know for you my love is that it’s beating … inside
I can’t say no … no … no matter how I try
I can’t deny my heart  ( My love is true )
I can’t say no … no … no matter what you do
I just can’t say … Oh, baby, I just can’t say
You know that I just can’t say no to you

Where I Want To Be

WHERE I WANT TO BE - Written by Carroll Bryant
 
 
 
Walking down the path I chose
Can’t recognize a single place I go
Your face is many faces in the crowd
 
Whispers spoken I can hear
Coming through to me loud and clear
I never heard silence speak so loud
 
To think I said I didn’t need you
To think I lied when I didn’t want to
Still here we are so far apart
Breaking time and breaking hearts
 
I try so hard to understand
The way you think you know I am
Somewhere lost inside your memory
Love threw away our yesterday
The games we played, the nights we stayed
It’s better if I pretend endlessly
 
Right now you are where I want to be
 
Reading words of many lines
Life recalls a better time
Your eyes see with my eyes way too much
 
Distance separates my will
Reaching out to get my fill
Your hand is in my hand from a touch
 
To think I said I didn’t need you
To think I tried when I didn’t have to
Still here we are so all alone
Making shrines and making poems
 
I try so hard to understand
The way you think you know I am
Somewhere lost inside your memory
Love threw away our yesterday
The games we played, the nights we stayed
It’s better if I pretend endlessly
 
Right now you are where I want to be
 
 Life can’t change the way we are
The things we took we took too far
Cuts so deep they leave a scar in the middle of our bones
And every time we knelt to save
A life we willingly threw away
We watched our moment dissipate into the dawning of our groans
Taking everything we owned
 
Oh God I miss you so
 
To think I said I didn’t need you
To think I lied when I didn’t want to
Still here we are so far apart
Breaking time and breaking hearts
 
Oh God I miss you so much
 
I try so hard to understand
The way you think you know I am
Somewhere lost inside your memory
Love threw away our yesterday
The games we played, the nights we stayed
It’s better if I pretend endlessly
 
Right now you are where I want to be
 
Right now … I need you here with me

Two Different

TWO DIFFERENT - Written by Carroll Bryant




You walk away
Crying from the words I can not say
Nothing’s changed
I’m still the guy from yesterday
You make believe That I feel
Something that is only real to you
Not me
For certain I can see
 
We’re two different books
On a different page
Two different actors up on the stage
Two different scripts from two different plays
Two different scenes on two different days
Two different songs in two different ways
Say what you want to say
We’re two different books on a different page
 
You shake your head
Laughing hysterically at nothing I said
Eyes turning red
Rolling them side to side and placing your bet
You just pretend that it’s real
Something that I can’t feel for you
From me
For certain this is to be
 
We’re two different books
On a different page
Two different actors up on the stage
Two different scripts from two different plays
Two different scenes on two different days
Two different songs in two different ways
Say what you want to say
We’re two different books on a different page
 
We’re just two different people
With too many dreams in between
All of this reading and writing
Isn’t all what it seems
 
I know you found out all about her
But that lives in my past
And the future that you’re projecting
Isn’t going to last
 
We’re just two different people
With too many thoughts in our brains
All of this yelling and fighting
Is washing us down the drain
 
 
I know you found out all about her
But that is history
And the future that you’re protecting
Just wasn’t meant to be
 
For you
For me
For certain I can see
 
You walk away
Crying from the words I can not say
Nothing’s changed
I’m still the guy from yesterday
You make believe That I feel
Something that is only real to you
Not me
Not me
For certain you just have to see
 
We’re two different books
On a different page
Two different actors up on the stage
Two different scripts from two different plays
Two different scenes on two different days
Two different songs in two different ways
Say what you want to say
We’re two different books on a different page
 
You walk away
Crying from the words I can not say

Dancing On The Moon

DANCING ON THE MOON - Written by Carroll Bryant






There is a hush in the air tonight
Silence so still I can hear my heart breathe
The stars are like diamonds in the sky
They sparkle at will and I just can’t believe
That I’m dancing on the moon
With love in my pocket and hope on the edge of the dawn
Dancing on the moon
Where dreams are like clouds and wishes do come true
There is a song that I sing to you
In this rush of emotion my heart feels so free
The touch of the wind’s what I bring to you
It stands where I am and where you should be
As I’m dancing on the moon
With love in my pocket and hope on the edge of the dawn
Dancing on the moon
Where dreams are like clouds and wishes do come true
There is a hush in the air tonight
There is a reason why we are alive
There is a song that I sing and I
Give it to the wind and send it to you
As I’m dancing on the moon
With love in my pocket and hope on the edge of the dawn
Dancing on the moon
Where dreams are like clouds and wishes do come true
Dancing on the moon … with love in my pocket and hope on the edge of the dawn
Dancing on the moon … where dreams are like clouds and wishes do come true

Midnight Confession

MIDNIGHT CONFESSION - Written by Carroll Bryant




Midnight confession

Two lovers locked inside the moment

It’s my obsession

Nobody’s going to leave here lonely

 

The power of touching

My will isn’t strong enough

To ever resist it

This feeling is really too much

 

And I know it can grow

I tell you so

So baby, don’t let go

 

Your love burns like a light

Your body’s hot and filled with desire

You keep me so satisfied

Your love burns like a light

Your love is blinding my eyes

Your love burns like a light

 

Filled with frustration

I was searching when I finally found you

Sweet intuition

No heart could be more true

 

The magic sensation

My heart is beating madly

This inclination

I give myself to you so gladly

 

And I know it can grow

I tell you so

So baby, don’t let go

 

Your love burns like a light

Your body’s hot and filled with desire

You keep me so satisfied

Your love burns like a light

Your love is blinding my eyes

Your love burns like a light

 

Midnight confession

Two bodies coming together

It’s our obsession

Everyday becomes forever

 

And I know it can grow

I tell you so

So baby, don’t let go

 

 

Your love burns like a light

Your body’s hot and filled with desire

You keep me so satisfied

Your love burns like a light

Your love is blinding my eyes

Your love burns like a light

You keep me so satisfied

Your love burns like a light

Wistful Nightmares

WISTFUL NIGHTMARES - Written by Carroll Bryant




You were my beautiful mistake

I believed every one of your lies

Love was there for us to take

I was shaking in the light of your eyes

 

And I couldn’t feel my energy

It’s so real

And I couldn’t breathe

I’d steal almost everything

Your touch

And I couldn’t find my way

 

Every night I keep pretending

Your heart beats with me in perfect rhythm and

Every night I keep believing

Your arms are holding me

The world keeps spinning

And all my dreams look better in slow motion

And all my dreams look better in slow motion

 

There’s a sponge absorbing all my brains

It’s the way that you topple and fraud

And it’s driving me insane

In the fields where our romance can’t run

 

And I mustn’t hear your symphony

It’s so clear

And I mustn’t sing

I’d steal almost anything

Your trust

And I mustn’t hallucinate

 

Every night I keep pretending

Your heart beats with me in perfect rhythm and

Every night I keep believing

Your arms are holding me

The world keeps spinning

And all my dreams look better in slow motion

And all my dreams look better in slow motion

 

You were a magnificent mistake

I believed everyone of your tears

Love was easy for to break

I was shaking at the sight of your fears

 

And I couldn’t feel my energy

It’s so real

And I couldn’t breathe

I’d steal almost everything

Your touch

And I couldn’t find my way

 

Every night I keep pretending

Your heart beats with me in perfect rhythm and

Every night I keep believing

Your arms are holding me

The world keeps spinning

And all my dreams look better in slow motion

And all my dreams look better in slow motion

 

Slow … mo … tion
