Don't Say Goodbye

DON'T SAY GOODBYE - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Tension flies high as I look in your eyes
I can see our dreams dancing in the firelight 

And I can recall precious moments and all
There are things you mean to me and I just can't discard it all

There is so much more to us than meets the eye
Give it one more try
Don't say goodbye
Don't give up on us
I need the love that you provide
Give it one more try
Don't say goodbye 

My love

Thoughts in my head and stars in the night 
Pain lives deep inside my heart and tears drop from your lonely eyes

And I can't explain the rise and the fall
There are things that don't make sense and I just can't forget it all

There is so much more to us than meets the eye
Give it one more try
Don't say goodbye
Don't give up on us
I need the love that you provide
Give it one more try
Don't say goodbye

My love

And just because it seems 
Doesn't really mean we should walk away

We should not be crying
And we should not deny our feelings 

Let us not deny those feelings 

My girl
My baby girl

There is so much more to us than meets the eye
Give it one more try
Don't say goodbye
Don't give up on us
I need the love that you provide
Give it one more try
Don't say goodbye

My love
My girl
My life

Traces Of Faces

TRACES OF FACES - Written by Carroll Bryant 


I don't know why you had to leave so soon
I suppose that God has special plans for you
But your spirit's still living
And the memories you have given 
Willl remain with me forever
And I will never, never let them go
But you're gone now and it shows
Though I see traces of your many funny faces
And maybe you have left us 
But your memory will live on in me 
For as long as I'm alive I will never let you go
Maybe you're gone now but I wanted you to know

You were taken in such a way that no one can explain 
You were a dear and special one and you know you had a name 
I can't deny crying
Can't keep my heart from dying 
And you will never really be gone 
You will continue living in me 
Our spirits will always be 
But you're gone 
So many times I still reach for you to touch your tender skin 
I call out to nothing again and again and again 

And maybe it's still crazy 
And maybe everyone's insane 
And the picture isn't perfect 
We cannot leave ourselves to blame 
And yes, the world keeps spinning
I want to tumble to the ground 
I will miss you forever and more 
To know you're not around in the physical
I feel you in the spiritual 
I need you in the physical
I feel you 

But you're gone ......

The Eternal Wound

THE ETERNAL WOUND - Written by Carroll Bryant 


I miss you so much
Just to kiss you again or feel your touch
Is a dream that lives forever 

Since you said goodbye
My eyes always cry over you
For you
And there's nothing
No, there's nothing I wouldn't do 
To have you back inside my life  again

Blood falls from the eternal wound
And I call out for you
The pain just never stops 
Blood falls 

Everywhere I go there always seems to be
Your memory
Haunting me

Everything you are keeps slapping me around
No more
Can't take it no more

Since you said goodbye
My eyes always cry over you
For you
And there's nothing
No, there's nothing I wouldn't do

No, there's nothing

Blood falls from the eternal wound
And I weep for you
The pain just never stops
Blood falls

Blood falls from the eternal wound
My broken heart
The pain just never stops
Blood falls

Blood falls from the eternal wound
And I call out for you in the dark
Blood falls and never stops
My broken heart

Blood falls from the eternal wound
I wait for you
The pain just never stops
Blood falls

Hope In The Children

HOPE IN THE CHILDREN - Written by Carroll Bryant 


I can see them looking at their children 
Tiny off springs that are truly gifts of love

"That's my boy." I hear the parents saying 
"She's my little precious. She's the 'L' of my life"

What do we see in the children?
Are they carrying the burden of our long lost dreams? 
What do we see in the children? 
Our past defeats or our future's identity? 

"I can't wait until I get married"
The young girl is saying that she wants a little girl
Why must we wish to have them before we have ourselves? 
Get caught up in a feeling right before the world 

What do we see in the children?
Are they carrying the burden of our long lost dreams? 
What do we see in the children? 
Our past defeats or our future's identity?

All of the people say that hope is in the children 
They said that too when I was a foolish lad
What am I to do, repeat it? I can't do it
If things are all that sad then think about tomorrow
And ask
What do we see in the children?
Are they carrying the burden of our long lost dreams? 
What do we see in the children? 
Our past defeats or our future's identity?

Heartbreak City

HEARTBREAK CITY - Written by Carroll Bryant 


You touched me with your eyes 
I felt love communication deep inside
You took the wheel
You said you knew how to drive

I trusted you and every spoken word
Told me some secrets and things I haven't heard 
You took my heart
And then you made it hurt 

But a foolish man is a man who claims to be wsie
To believe in love is to believe in your wicked lies 
Don't need excuses and or your alibis 
That's right

Get away, get away
Don't show me no pity
Let me live alone in heartbreak city 
Get away, get away
Just leave me alone 
Heartbreak city is home 

It's such a lonely home 

I heard the thunder and wondered why 
I saw the lightening crack across the sky 
Tears fell forever 
And well into the night 

The book of true love has yet to be written 
Just as virgin hearts have yet to be bitten 
You were a hungry cat I know 
And I was your victim

But a heart attack can't bring you back to who you were
To believe in love is to almost believe in her 
Don't need a simple reason just to be simply sure 
It hurts

Get away, get away
Don't show me no pity
Let me live alone in heartbreak city 
Get away, get away
Just leave me alone 
Heartbreak city is home 

It's such a lonely home

And a foolish man is a man who claims to be Divine
To believe in love is to believe in something sublime
A heart attack can't bring you back to who you are 
Or wanna be when you wanna be a superstar
That's right 

Get away, get away
Don't show me no pity
Let me live alone in heartbreak city 
Get away, get away
Just leave me alone 
Heartbreak city is home 

It's such a lonely home

What Kind Of Religion?

WHAT KIND OF RELIGION? - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Somebody gets down on their knees 
Looking at the sky with tears say, "Please God, please." 
They never knelt down like this before 
Kisses of nine be fine baby, do what more? 

What kind of religion do you call this?
What kind of religion when a kiss is just a kiss 

Somebody gathers at the house of pray 
Looking in the sky with a smile saying, "I am here today." 
They never gathered at this kind of place before
Never will again, will I sin baby, do what more? 

What kind of religion do you call this?
What kind of religion when a kiss is just a kiss
What kind of religion can you call this? 
What kind of religion when a kiss is just a kiss 

Someone is saying your hair is growing way too long
The statement you're making in that dress is really much too strong
They never read what life is really for
Messing with your mind all the time baby, do what more? 

What kind of religion do you call this?
What kind of religion when a kiss is just a kiss
What kind of religion can you call this? 
What kind of religion when a kiss is just a kiss

The Cry (Eternity)

THE CRY (ETERNITY) - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Tear drop - Drop, drop, drop
Crying over a bucket 
In hopes that it will catch what we can't stop

Such a shame there is a hole in the bucket
Now it cannot be filled with pain
There's no way we can stop it
The tears

Hold the tears back?
Stop crying?
Get another bucket?

What if there are no more buckets left? 

Tear drop - Drop, drop, drop

Eternity 

For every tear that falls the soul heals its wounds 
For every wound there is a scar

Tear drop - Drop, drop, drop

Eternity

The Heart Is The Hunter

THE HEART IS THE HUNTER - Written by Carroll Bryant 


The city streets is where they roam
Midnight angels all alone
Tough enough to find a thrill 
With looks so much that they could kill 

Demons are screaming 
Opening up their souls 
Just in time to find a home 

Everybody knows that the heart is the hunter 
Pick me up, baby
Will you be a friend of mine? 
So it goes until the heart finds a lover 
Pick me up, baby
Will you stay with me tonight?

I'm lonely

On the block and avenue 
Dirty deeds done cheap for you 
Eagerly they touch to sin
Desperately they taste the skin 

Demons are screaming
Opening up their doors 
Just in time to have some more 

Everybody knows that the heart is the hunter 
Pick me up, baby
Will you be a friend of mine? 
So it goes until the heart finds a lover 
Pick me up, baby
Will you stay with me tonight?

I'm lonely

This doesn't have to be a binding contract 
You don't have to worry about putting it in writing 
All I need is for you and I to make contact
Taking what you offer and making it exciting 

Shadows fade inside the dark 
In the alley, a howling bark
Haunting eyes so shiny red
Strangers share a concrete bed 

Demons are screaming
Opening up inside 
While danger finds a place to hide 

Everybody knows that the heart is the hunter 
Pick me up, baby
Will you be a friend of mine? 
So it goes until the heart finds a lover 
Pick me up, baby
Will you stay with me tonight?

I'm lonely

Just stay with me tonight, and be my lover
Everybody knows that the heart is the hunter

I'm lonely

Never Leave Me

NEVER LEAVE ME - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Read my mind
Your mind
Never mind 
Never leave me 

You are mine
I'm mine
Never mine
Never leave me 

This is a sad story to say 
I wish I had what Elvis threw away 

Let me be king like Dean in the leather style 
And sing like the king forever and now 

I am the one who can write
I am right
I am write 

Read my mind
Your mind
Never mind 
Never leave me 

You are mine
I'm mine
Never mine
Never leave me

What is it like to be chosen?
Maybe I know, I don't know, but I know what I'm missing

Let me be rich like a bitch with diamonds and pearls 
Only to smile all the while at the poor boys and girls

I am the one who must write
I am right
I am write

Read my mind
Your mind
Never mind 
Never leave me 

You are mine
I'm mine
Never mine
Never leave me

I must write, right, write
Before I die, die, die

I am right
I am write

Bandit Beast Higher (She Devil)

BANDIT BEAST HIGHER (SHE DEVIL VERSION) - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Every night you find yourself another 
You're running out of time girl
You're running out of lovers
Make believe and tell yourself you're someone 
You can't leave until you find yourself a new one 

You are the bandit beast higher 
You know your soul is on fire
You are in love with lust and full of desire 
You are the bandit beast higher 
And you know that it's pain, pain
Rip'em apart baby
Stalk'em like a killer
And it's pain, pain
Deep in your heart girl, you know it's a thriller 

Every night your heart goes undercover
You open your legs to another lonely lover 
You don't care just giving out your number 
You take them to bed but never do you slumber 
You are the party girl for hire

You are the bandit beast higher 
You know your soul is on fire
You are in love with lust and full of desire 
You are the bandit beast higher 
And you know that it's pain, pain
Rip'em apart baby
Stalk'em like a killer
And it's pain, pain
Deep in your heart girl, you know it's a thriller

And love means nothing to you 
You just do what you want to do

And you know that it's pain, pain
Rip'em apart baby
Stalk'em like a killer
And it's pain, pain
Deep in your heart girl, you know it's a thriller
 
You are the bandit beast higher

Love Is Alive

LOVE IS ALIVE - Written by Carroll Bryant 


How can I count the ways when dreams fill my mind?
I love you more everyday and always all the time 

My heart calls out for you
When you touch my skin you stir emotions 
So say you love me too 
And together we'll sail all of the oceans 

Love is alive
Inside my soul and every night
Always together girl, you and I 

Love is alive
Cross my heart and hope to die 
I will never ever say goodbye

Love is alive
A fire so hot that we can't deny
Always together girl, you and I

Love is alive 
You're the best thing I found in of my life
I will never ever say goodbye

Love is alive

Love is alive

Parental Discretion Advised

PARENTAL DISCRETION ADVISED - Written by Carroll Bryant


Seventeen and sexy 
She can talk the talk
Nymphomaniac and nasty 
She can walk the walk 

Every mothers nightmare
Every fathers dream
Looks real cute in her birthday suit 
Looking dangerous in those jeans 

She will break you like a child while she holds you in her hand 
She was born free and wild and tasting what she can 

Parental discretion advised 
Sexy little angel dancing right before your eyes 
You can love her all you want but you better say goodbye 
Parental discretion is advised 

The principle from the school falls down to his knees 
Pay per view just like a fool 
And do that what he please 

Miniskirt, the girl she flirts and shakes her head in no
Don't be hurt you sick pervert 
Just buy another show 

Everything she does in gender has to do with cream
Quick in and out so warm and tender 
You better make her scream

Parental discretion advised 
Sexy little angel standing right before your eyes 
You can touch her where you want, but man she's cold as ice
Parental discretion is advised

Even when she's waking up in the middle of the night
Let's her fingers push the button
The girl is outta sight 

Seventeen and sexy
Pleasure for pain
She's tough enough to call your bluff
Using whips and chains 

Secretly like Buttafuco, you can have it all
Beware my friend of sexy sin
She's against the law

Parental discretion advised 
Sexy little angel dancing right before your eyes 
You can love her all you want but you better say goodbye 
Parental discretion is advised

Parental discretion advised 
Sexy little angel standing right before your eyes 
You can touch her where you want, but man she's cold as ice
Parental discretion is advised

Ba-La-La

BA-LA-LA - Written by Carroll Bryant 


I could go to church if I wanted to
I could say a prayer
And sometimes I do 
But instead I elect to play my electric guitar 
Even though I know it won't get  me very far 
I say this
You sent your son, Jesus Christ
Ba-la-la, sacrifice 
Ba-la-la, that was nice 

I could read the bible if I wanted to
I could quote the scriptures
And sometimes I do 
But instead I elect to sit inside a bar
Even though I know it won't get me very far 
I say this
You sent your son, Jesus Christ
Ba-la-la, sacrifice 
Ba-la-la, that was nice

I could be a christian if I wanted to 
I could sing for glory 
And sometimes I do 
But instead I elect to fiddle with my car 
Even though I know it won't get me very far 
I say this
You sent your son, Jesus Christ
Ba-la-la, sacrifice 
Ba-la-la, that was nice 

I mean this
You sent your son, Jesus Christ
Ba-la-la, sacrifice 
Ba-la-la, that was nice

Wants (Not What You Need)

WANTS (NOT WHAT YOU NEED) - Written by Carroll Bryant


I saw the lightening 
I heard the thunder 
I saw you standing there
I sat and wondered 

"It must be now!" My soul was screaming
Pinch me quick someone, I - I must be dreaming 

It went by oh, so fast, but God, it took so fucking long 
It should've lasted forever so how did it go so fucking wrong?

All I ever wanted was somebody to love me 
All I ever wanted was somebody to love 
All I ever wanted was somebody to save me 
Forgive me if I wanted too much
I'm sorry love wasn't enough 

A gift from heaven
A curse from hell 
What did it matter? 
How could we tell? 

All that was spoken was a mouthful of lies 
Now we know what happens when two fools collide 

Was sex such a nasty word?
I know I wanted you, but all I got was hurt 

I feel it now

All I ever wanted was somebody to love me 
All I ever wanted was somebody to love 
All I ever wanted was somebody to save me 
Forgive me if I wanted too much
I'm sorry love wasn't enough

Here I go again
Looking at the girl sleeping next to me
And yes, maybe I got her but
She isn't what I wanted or need 

And I know you won't believe it 
But so help me god it's true
Sometimes when I look down at her 
I could swear I'm looking down at you 

There's nothing I can do 

Pick up the pieces 
I guess I'll try
I won't forget you
At least until I die 

Who is to blame? We both get the credit 
To slip away, how did we let it? 
Was sex such a horrible word? 
How can I tell you how much this hurts?

It really fucking hurts 

All I ever wanted was somebody to love me 
All I ever wanted was somebody to love 
All I ever wanted was somebody to save me 
Forgive me if I wanted too much
I'm sorry love wasn't enough 

I feel it now

Hrisko

HRISKO - Written by Carroll Bryant 


So many dreams did come and go
Who is to blame?
Who can explain?

We made our lives into a freak show
What did we feel?
And was it real?

Hrisko, I want you to know
I learned oh, so much from you
Showed me a way I know is true 

Hrisko, where did you go?
You were me and so confused 
I was blind, but saw in you 
The dreams and things I know are coming true
For me and you 

So many laws we must abide by
Who was the best?
Was it all a test?

We tried and tried but only did we hide inside
What was in our souls?
And so the story goes 

Hrisko, I wish that you could see
The changes that I had to make 
The calling I could not forsake 

Hrisko, where did you go? 
Two souls lost that paid the price
I still see you in my minds eye 
Playing with our dreams and things of truth 
Inside our youth 

Hrisko, I want you to know
I learned oh, so much from you
Showed me a way I know is true 

Hrisko, where did you go?
You were me and so confused 
I was blind, but saw in you 
The dreams and things I know are coming true
For me and you 

Hrisko, where did you go?


Hrisko

You Inspire Me

YOU INSPIRE ME - Written by Carroll Bryant 


At first glance I saw it in your eyes
Like a child lost somewhere inside
You were reaching with a hungry appetite 
I only long to hold you deep into the night 

My lonely chance is to hope and believe 
A wild heart trapped while the restless spirit remains so free
You are waiting there much too patiently 
Girl, I gotta let you know what it is you do to me 

You inspire me to be all I can be
This bird will use its wings and life means everything 
You inspire me to try and take the lead
This diamond's now a ring and love means everything

At first glance I picked up on the vibes
Like a long-haired drifter strung out from the ride
You were flashing me all of the signs 
Not a chance for mystery I quipped to make you mine
My grateful nerves were hauntingly inviting me to breathe 
Like a wire transporting volts of electricity 
You were so pleasing while you flirted with me teasingly 
Girl, I gotta let you know what it is that you do to me

You inspire me to be all I can be
This bird will use its wings and life means everything 
You inspire me to try and take the lead
This diamond's now a ring and love means everything

And in the rest of our lives, how long before to make you my wife?
Can I wish to count my stars above? 
When everything that is special is everything that is love

You become the best of my life 

At first glance I saw it in your eyes 
Like a child lost somewhere inside 
You were reaching with a hungry appetite 
I only long to hold you deep into the night 

You inspire me to be all I can be
This bird will use its wings and life means everything 
You inspire me to try and take the lead
This diamond's now a ring and love means everything

The Alien Knows

THE ALIEN KNOWS - Written by Carroll Bryant 


There is a secret and it hides from most of us
On another planet there is life living in total love
Another world so advanced that our blinded minds can't see 
And on their star I make a wish, but will you ever wish for me? 

The alien knows of love and how to live
What to take and what to give 
And so it goes to stay alive
What it means to just survive
The seed that's planted in good faith
Watch it as it grows
The alien knows of love
The alien knows 

I saw the vision but I didn't know what to do 
I watched her die long ago, and now I'm watching you
The dreams that live within our time and the struggles that we face
Are illusions redefined that will be destroyed and then replaced

The alien knows of love and how to live
What to take and what to give 
And so it goes to stay alive
What it means to just survive
The seed that's planted in good faith
Watch it as it grows
The alien knows of love
The alien knows

And in the midst of shadows 
I'm reaching for a hand 
To fill the need that feeds off flesh
Where there's a woman, there's a man 

 There is a secret and it hides from most of us
On another planet there is life living in total love
The dreams that live within our time and the struggles that we face
Are illusions redefined that will be destroyed and then replaced

The alien knows of love and how to live
What to take and what to give 
And so it goes to stay alive
What it means to just survive
The seed that's planted in good faith
Watch it as it grows
The alien knows of love
The alien knows 

The alien knows of love
The alien knows

Ferris Wheel

FERRIS WHEEL - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Young at heart
Young at love
Neither one of us knew exactly what it was 
Playing silly games up until there was no end 
More than a boy and girl
Much more than friends 

How could they try and say that we would never remember
When we will not forget until we close our eyes forever 

Ferris wheel 
It was so real
Puppy love can never say goodbye 
Ferris wheel goes round and 
Puppies never touching ground - again 
Puppies never cry 

Hand in hand 
Innocence to innocence 
Neither one of us really cared what it was 
Just hanging out and doing our time until then
Less was expected 
More left behind 

Why would they try to fight us and somehow try to deny us
When we will not forget until we close our hearts forever

Ferris wheel 
It was so real
Puppy love can never say goodbye 
Ferris wheel goes round and 
Puppies never touching ground - again 
Puppies never cry

Why can't fairy tales come true?
Why can't wishes be the best that we can do?
Why do children have to be less than feeling in society?
It was true - Me and you

It was our love
It was a good love
Our first love
The very best love
Very first love
It was a young love
It was a love 

It was our love! 

Why would they try and say that we would never remember
When we will not forget and then we close our eyes forever

Be together now and forever 
Forever

Ferris wheel 
It was so real
Puppy love can never say goodbye 
Ferris wheel goes round and 
Puppies never touching ground - again 
Puppies never cry

Puppies never die

Thank You, Pray

THANK YOU, PRAY - Written by Carroll Bryant


I live among those who say they worship Satan 
One, two, three and so the fucking money goes
Rich man builds his city full of cheap tricks 
Four, five, six and maybe seven are sold 

The days and nights are like opposites 
But from one another do they both exist 
Pain is sought from each others pleasure 
The bite that heals becomes a kiss

Ain't it funny how we beg for mercy? 
In a time of crisis, what do we say? 
Ain't it funny how we remember his name? 
Thank you, pray
Ain't it funny how we beg for mercy? 
In a time of crisis and we act that way
Ain't it funny how we remember his fame? 
Thank you, pray

I cling to life sometimes like I'm afraid to die 
Forgetting all that I was ever taught 
Centuries have unfolded before my very eyes
Sometimes I forget that I'm the one who's caught 

Angel that appears has left me a blessing
Looking back, was left but a curse
I suppose some like their salad without dressing 
I suppose things could be worse 

Ain't it funny how we beg for mercy? 
In a time of crisis, what do we say? 
Ain't it funny how we remember his name? 
Thank you, pray
Ain't it funny how we beg for mercy? 
In a time of crisis and we act that way
Ain't it funny how we remember his fame? 
Thank you, pray

I assume somewhere that our spirits are freelancing 
Though my conscious mind does its best to lie
Like a plug pulled straight out from its socket 
Where does all of that voltage like to hide?

I am one who must maintain a presence 
Standing undecided until it's time for me to leave 
The job of life is to find that perfect essence 
To which someday to make everyone believe in me 

Ain't it funny how we beg for mercy? 
In a time of crisis, what do we say? 
Ain't it funny how we remember his name? 
Thank you, pray
Ain't it funny how we beg for mercy? 
In a time of crisis and we act that way
Ain't it funny how we remember his fame? 
Thank you, pray
