Rue The Day

RUE THE DAY - Written by Carroll Bryant




I’m nothing to you but a memory souvenir
Something you can cling to in the heat of your fears
Living with such a deplorable mind
How is that you can even sleep at night?

But I guess liars need their rest too

I was riding down the highway in the middle of my life
Missing all the signs as they went flying by
Heading for nowhere in a nightmarish dream
You went and put your spell on me

Everybody plays the fool

You’re gonna rue the day when you broke my heart
You’re gonna rue the day you tore it apart
I’m gonna find a way to make a new start
With the eyes of a lonely face
Girl, you’re gonna rue the day

Sweet little innocent devil in disguise
I’m tired of your excuses and I’m tired of your lies
Living in a world of nothing but pretend
You live in a sequence of invisible friends

But I guess haters are people too

You think you’re all this and you think you’re all that
I think you’ve been smoking way too much crack
A heartless little bitch who is cold to the core
A slut turned a nasty whore

This is your only truth

You’re gonna rue the day when you broke my heart
You’re gonna rue the day you tore it apart
I’m gonna find a way to make a new start
With the eyes of a lonely face
Girl, you’re gonna rue the day

I’m nothing to you but a memory souvenir
Something you can cling to in the heat of your fears
But I guess that’s all anybody could expect from you

There’s a reason why HE doesn’t want you

You’re gonna rue the day when you broke my heart
You’re gonna rue the day you tore it apart
I’m gonna find a way to make a new start
With the eyes of a lonely face
Girl, you’re gonna rue the day

Loves Unembrace

LOVES UNEMBRACE - Written by Carroll Bryant




What is this mystery?
When in your eyes I can’t see
You and me
Where did that feeling go?
It came so fast and left so slow
Or do we know?

Here we are
Two people badly scarred
Fighting for their love
Fighting for their very life

There’s a whisper in your yell
There’s something you keep holding back
And I’m afraid to ask
Afraid to tell
There’s something that’s not right
But we can’t face the truth
And for that we’re fighting for our lives

Could this be the end?
You know I can’t pretend
To be a friend
Why does it have to be?
We’re pawns to our electricity
Trapped in misery

Here we are
Two people so far apart
Trying to survive
Trying to swim back to the shore

There’s a whisper in your yell
There’s something you keep holding back
And I’m afraid to ask
Afraid to tell
There’s something that’s not right
But we can’t face the truth
And for that we’re fighting for our lives

What is this mystery?
When in your eyes I can’t see
You and me
Where did that feeling go?
It came so fast and left so slow
Or do we know?

There’s a whisper in your yell
There’s something you keep holding back
And I’m afraid to ask
Afraid to tell
There’s something that’s not right
But we can’t face the truth
And for that we’re fighting for our lives

Hold me tight

Here we are
Two people badly scarred
Fighting for their love
Fighting for their very life

Trapped inside of loves unembrace

Lap Of Luxury

LAP OF LUXURY - Written by Carroll Bryant




Life is a revolving door
I forgot what my life was for
Too many want control
Adrenaline rises to the power

This garbage that they like to feed
To all the people who are in need
They’ll make the sacrifice of freedom
If you can only make the fear go away

Living in the lap of luxury
I can’t believe that things could be so bad
Is Oz a fantasy?
When will they finally get mad?

They tell you what you want to hear
Have you heard it all before one time?
Too many turn their heads
They are already bought and sold

Their words are nuclear waste
Our time keeps tick, tick, ticking all away
They’ll force themselves on you
Because they have nothing better to do

Living in the lap of luxury
I live and breathe all the things so sad
Is love a faded thing?
When will they finally get mad?

Have you had enough of misery?
How long to survive like this?
Why haven’t we already figured out
What it’s about?
Or do we simply not care?

Thoughts exploding in the air
Like fireworks
Why does it hurt so much?

Their religion is to make you cry
Their decision is to watch you die
Their contention is that they don’t even know why

You know it’s true inside of you
Nothing but lies

Life is a revolving door
I forgot what my life was for
Too many want control
Adrenaline rises to the power

All that they seek is full control
Of you!

Living in the lap of luxury
I can’t believe that things could be so bad
Is Oz a fantasy?
When will they finally get mad?

Living in the lap of luxury
I live and breathe all the things so sad
Is love a faded thing?
When will they finally get mad?

And you know someday they will get mad
And finally say “I’ve had enough”
But will it be too late?

It’s already too late for me

When will they finally get mad?

They're living in the lap of luxury

Save You

SAVE YOU - Written by Carroll Bryant




Let the cold night of steel
Take you away
Take you away from me

You cut yourself to pieces because
Just because
That’s the only thing that’s real

You scared me to the edge
Of the world
But now I’m back to save you
I can’t save you from the past
Not today
Tomorrow is just a scream away though

You scared me into thinking that you’ve changed
You’ll never change
You changed me
And now all I want to do is save you

Let the morning kiss me goodbye
I’ll go away
Leave you and your silly dreams behind

You spit on everything around you
I mean everything
It’s all you got from going crazy

You scared me to the edge
Of the world
But now I’m back to save you
I can’t save you from the past
Not today
Tomorrow is just a scream away though

You scared me into thinking that you’ve changed
You’ll never change
You changed me
And now all I want to do is save you

A wretched heart, a centipede
They’re both the same
This is you

You tell your lies because it’s all you got
All is lost
Nothing can save you
You scared me to the edge
Of the world
But now I’m back to save you
I can’t save you from the past
Not today
Tomorrow is just a scream away though

You scared me into thinking that you’ve changed
You’ll never change
You changed me
And now all I want to do is save you

I Just Want

I JUST WANT - Written by Carroll Bryant




Talking on a cell phone
Walking the middle of your peninsula
I keep dialing the wrong number
Maybe I should give it up

I just want to hear your voice
I just want to see your face
I just want to touch your skin
I just want to dream you here

Watching tidal waves
Sweep all of my emotions away
Standing on the beach
The end to another day

I just want you in my arms
I just want you in my heart
I just want you now
I just want you somehow

Looking to the sky
Listening to all the Earth go by
Believing there’s no way
That our hopes could ever die

I just want to hear your voice
I just want to see your face
I just want to touch your skin
I just want to dream you here
I just want you in my arms
I just want you in my heart
I just want you now
I just want you somehow

I just want your love

I just want this moment to last
I just want to run to you
I just want you by my side
I just want you in my eyes

I just want you all the time

I just want to hear your voice
I just want to see your face
I just want to touch your skin
I just want to dream you here
I just want you in my arms
I just want you in my heart
I just want you now
I just want you somehow

I just want your love

I just want you to want me too

Paradise Broken

PARADISE BROKEN - Written by Carroll Bryant




I wanna fall into your cloud
One look from you and I’m aroused
It only takes one time to smile
Leaving me all the while
To wilt before the speed of sound

I wanna crawl inside of you
Just to die a time or two
Make me break it all apart
A thief of lonely hearts
To falter
Too confused

I can’t hide behind your eyes
There is no difference between
Your truths and or your lies
So give me back my life
I can’t run from where you stand
Woman to man
There is no paradise

I wouldn’t wish for nothing else
A touch of heaven and a taste of hell
Jumping forward to go back
Everything that don’t, goes black
No magic for the spell

Taking chances every day
Trying hard to find the words to say
That what you think you know you feel
Can always be repealed
To live
Too abstract

I can’t hide behind your eyes
There is no difference between
Your truths and or your lies
So give me back my life
I can’t run from where you stand
Woman to man
There is no paradise

This hallowed ground you claim to walk on
Is a broken tune of time forgotten
What revolves, revolves around you
And I can’t find enough in me to give to you

I can’t hide behind your eyes
There is no difference between
Your truths and or your lies
So give me back my life
I can’t run from where you stand
Woman to man
There is no paradise

The bliss of wedding plans
Holding hand to hand
I can’t hide behind your eyes

I can’t run from where you stand
Woman to man
There is no paradise

California Dreams

CALIFORNIA DREAMS - Writtenby Carroll Bryant




It was mid-day in the sweltering Missouri heat
When inspiration struck sweet Natalie
“This dead end life isn’t the life for me”
She needed something bigger and more obscene

She bought a one way ticket
Said goodbye to her friends
Swore to never come back until she made it
Looking straight ahead
Never looking back again
Hollywood or bust, she’s gonna make it
Said goodbye to mom and dad
And she packed up everything
Just a small town girl with California dreams

Carrie was a waitress in New Mexico
Stuck in a rut with almost no place to go
The desperation on her face left her all alone
Without a heart is to be without a home

She bought a one way ticket
Said goodbye to her friends
Swore to never come back until she made it
Looking straight ahead
Never looking back again
Hollywood or bust, she’s gonna make it
Said goodbye to mom and dad
And she packed up everything
Just a small town girl with California dreams

There’s got to be something more to what there is
A moonlight rendezvous can lead a girl to this

Into a world of happiness

It was a romance that didn’t go as planned
Leaving Jennifer without a steady man
Taking a deep breath and clasping her hands
With a gleam in her eye and slowly to shaking her head

She bought a one way ticket
Said goodbye to her friends
Swore to never come back until she made it
Looking straight ahead
Never looking back again
Hollywood or bust, she’s gonna make it
Said goodbye to mom and dad
And she packed up everything
Just a small town girl with California dreams

They’re just small town girls with California dreams

Would You Be That Guy?

WOULD YOU BE THAT GUY? - Written by Carroll Bryant




She’s just a girl or so they say
There’s nothing special to write about
She minds her own and goes her way
Living undiscovered

With her eyes she can see when her heart skips a beat
But that ain’t enough, oh no
Every boy that she meets who is running the streets
Can lead her into trouble

She’s just a girl with filtered dreams
There’s always rumors to entertain
In love sometimes you have to scream
Just to get attention

With her ears she can hear when her hopes disappear
But that’s just the call of the wild
When she does all she can to find a good man
Always coming up empty

So many questions where there’s no more prayers
She can only ask why

Would you be that guy?
To take her away to a foreign place?
Put that smile back on her face?
Could you take her tonight?
Would you be that guy?

It’s not fair to anyone to be the one left out
When it comes to real romance
Nobody wants to be the only one on their cloud
It’s time to take a stance

With the tricks of the hand she can understand
That it’s all just a roll of the dice
Where it goes from there is hardly a care
Living undercover

Would you be that guy?
To take her away to a foreign place?
Put that smile back on her face?
Could you take her tonight?
Would you be that guy?

It’s not fair to anyone to be the one left out
When it comes to real romance
Nobody wants to be the only one on their cloud
It’s time to take a stance

She’s just a girl or so they say
There’s nothing special to write about
She minds her own and goes her way
Living undiscovered

With her eyes she can see when her heart skips a beat
But that ain’t enough, oh no
Every boy that she meets who is running the streets
Can lead her into trouble

So many questions where there’s no more prayers
She can only ask why

Would you be that guy?
To take her away to a foreign place?
Put that smile back on her face?
Could you take her tonight?
Would you be that guy?

Would you be that guy?
Don’t let her love go un-recovered
Show to her, lover to a lover
Could you take her tonight?
Would you be that guy?

Would you be that guy?

Forget About It

FORGET ABOUT IT - Written by Carroll Bryant 




I can’t forget I met you
I keep forgetting to forget all about you
No matter how hard that I try
You’re something I let get the better of me
And yet I know that I regret it too

Even though I die inside
At least I know that I really won’t die

Don’t forget about me
I’m standing here in clear plain view
Don’t forget about me
I’m standing here and waiting for you
There’s a heart that’s buried deep
With a treasure so true
Don’t forget about me
Until I forget about you

I’m standing on the beach
I see a ship carrying all my dreams
It’s so far out of my reach
I’m so discontent and you resent me
And yet I know that ship is sinking

Even though I cry inside
At least I know that I will someday survive

Don’t forget about me
I’m standing here in clear plain view
Don’t forget about me
I’m standing here and waiting for you
There’s a heart that’s buried deep
With a treasure so true
Don’t forget about me
Until I forget about you

I’m gonna let the world fall down
And crash around
Scatter itself all about my feet

I’m gonna let the waves crash down
And splash around
Until I can make you believe

Believe in me

I can’t forget I met you
I keep forgetting to forget all about you

Even though I die inside
At least I know that I really won’t die

Don’t forget about me
I’m standing here in clear plain view
Don’t forget about me
I’m standing here and waiting for you
There’s a heart that’s buried deep
With a treasure so true
Don’t forget about me
Until I forget about you
Forget about you
Until I forget about you

Forget about it!

In Deep

IN DEEP - Written by Carroll Bryant 




Can’t unlock the door without a key
Can’t swim to shore from in the middle of the sea
Can’t find the heart without a soul filled with love

Can’t walk a mile with another one to go
Can’t paint a smile without the colors to do so
Can’t kill the monster if you are the beast

You got the power
You got the tool
You got it all if you want it
Don’t be your own fool

Another story line goes on without an end
I’m in deep, so deep
And so I toe the line on the verge of a new friend
I’m in deep, so deep

Can’t pay the price without the cost
Can’t play it right when you know that you’ve lost
Can’t gain the pleasure for due to the pain

Can’t stand to choose without selection
Can’t sit down to a standing ovation
Can’t remain numb to all that you feel

You got the reason
You got it made
You got whatever you wanted
Don’t swim in your own shame

Another story line goes on without an end
I’m in deep, so deep
And so I toe the line on the verge of a new friend
I’m in deep, so deep

Can’t measure up to the smallest of size
Can’t have broken wings and expect to fly
Can’t figure out all the when, where’s and why’s

The only thing left to do
Is lay here and think about you

Another story line goes on without an end
I’m in deep, so deep
And so I toe the line on the verge of a new friend
I’m in deep, so deep

I Notice You

I NOTICE YOU - Written by Carroll Bryant




You’re so shy
Are you willing to let this kind of chance go by?
With all of our secrets
There’s hardly any time for everything we leave behind
Why even try?
You are the apple of my eye

I’m so vain
Or at the least that’s what everybody claims
I’m open to new wonders
Thrust into service to touch you once again
When will it end?
What kind of message does it send?

I notice you
Something tells me that you’re noticing me too
Love communication
It’s hard to look away when deep inside there looms
Another chance for us to hide behind the moon
When all we have are seconds and we again become two fools
I notice you
I always notice you

You’re so plain
Are you willing to go through it all again?
Moments keep on slipping
Too much emotion can cloud up all our thoughts
Why dance around it?
Let’s show them what we got

I’m so wild
Deep in the heart of who I am, I’m still a child
Why beg to differ?
Three easy lessons that were taught, we just can’t learn
Souls that yearn
We are the flames that like to burn

I notice you
Something tells me that you’re noticing me too
Love communication
It’s hard to look away when deep inside there looms
Another chance for us to hide behind the moon
When all we have are seconds and we again become two fools
I notice you
I always notice you

I know you’ll read this and shake your pretty head
Trying to figure out what it is I said
You know I’ll take it all the wrong ways so instead
We should talk it out
We should work it out
Tell each other all about it

You’re so shy
Are you willing to let this kind of chance go by?
With all of our secrets
There’s hardly any time for everything we leave behind
Why even try?
You are the apple of my eye

I notice you
Something tells me that you’re noticing me too
Love communication
It’s hard to look away when deep inside there looms
Another chance for us to hide behind the moon
When all we have are seconds and we again become two fools
I notice you
I always notice you

Beautiful Packages

BEAUTIFUL PACKAGES - Written by Carroll Bryant




It wasn’t suppose to be this way
Nothing that I can do
Nothing that I can say
You can’t win for losing
Maybe it’s all the same
Nothing that I can do
Nothing that I can say

Well, she’s pretty in pink with sunset eyes
She can scratch and she can bite
Sit back boy and enjoy the nasty ride
She can run but she sure as hell can’t hide

There’s nothing left inside me anymore

Hell comes in beautiful packages
Evil resides in some of the most innocent looking hearts
Hell comes in beautiful packages
The jaws of life will get you and rip your world apart

All apart

It wasn’t suppose to go down like this
Nothing but a perfect hit
Nothing but a perfect miss
You can’t swim for sinking
Maybe it’s just your bliss
Nothing but a perfect hit
Nothing but a perfect fucking miss

Man, she’s a laughing stock of all the guys
She can scratch and she can bite
Stand up now or forever lose the fight
She can kick the habit from your life

Hell comes in beautiful packages
Evil resides in some of the most innocent looking hearts
Hell comes in beautiful packages
The jaws of life will get you and rip your soul apart

All apart

Take your final journey to the stars or everglades
This is the world that was made especially for you
Make this everything that you can only forsake
This is the time to wake up your sleepy eyes

It wasn’t suppose to be this way
Nothing that I can do
Nothing that I can say
You can’t win for losing
Maybe it’s all the same
Nothing that I can do
Nothing that I can say

There’s nothing left to be said

Hell comes in beautiful packages
Evil resides in some of the most innocent looking hearts
Hell comes in beautiful packages
The jaws of life will get you and rip your mind apart

Hell comes in beautiful packages
So turn around my friend and go back from you did start

Hell comes in pretty packages
All I know is this
That it fucking sucks

Hell comes in beautiful packages
Packages from hell will rip your world apart
