Kid In A Candy Store

KID IN A CANDY STORE - Written by Carroll Bryant 




If you’re looking for some fun
I could give you some
If you’re looking for a good time
I could blow your mind
If you’re looking for a man
Baby, here I am
If you’re looking for some love
I got that magic touch
I couldn’t ask for anything more
Baby, I’m nothing but a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

If you’re looking for a fight
Girl, I can go all night
If you’re looking for some sin
I could work that in
If you’re looking for to scream
Then I’m the man of your dreams
If you’re wanting it hard
I can rip it apart
You might think that I’m a man-whore
But really I’m nothing but a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

I can’t come down from all of this
Looking around and all I see is
Sweet looking ladies everywhere

You know that I just want my share

If you’re looking for a heart
Well, I’m the place you can start
If you’re looking for it tough
I can get a little rough
If you’re looking to get stung
I got an eager tongue
If you’re looking for some charm
Then fall into my arms
Girls keep knocking down on my door
Looking for me, for the kid
The kid in a candy store
The kid in a candy store

I couldn’t ask for anything more
Baby, I’m nothing but a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

You might think that I’m a man-whore
But really all I am is a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

Girls, keep knocking down on my door
Looking for me, for the kid
The kid in a candy store
The kid in a candy store

I couldn’t ask for anything more
Baby, I’m nothing but a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

San Diego

SAN DIEGO - Written by Carroll Bryant  



I can’t sleep
Knowing that you’re on my mind
I can’t eat
Never seem to find the time

When all I ever wanted was a dream come true
I had to go and bump into you

And now I’m living a lie
Telling myself that I just can’t survive
Always trying to hide the map of my life
That’s showing me where I should go
Knowing what I’ve should have always known
I need to be with you tonight somewhere in San Diego

I can’t think
There’s nothing else left inside
I just drink
Watching as it all goes by

When all I needed was a golden rule
You had to go and make me a fool

And now I have to realize
Telling myself that I just can’t surmise
Always trying to hide the make of my ride
That’s showing me where I should go
Knowing what I’ve should have always known
I want to be with you tonight somewhere in San Diego

Phone calls and letters are so nice
But they don’t make me feel better
And with my love on the line
I jump into that car of mine tonight

When all I ever wanted was a dream come true
I had to go and bump into you

You know what I say is true

And now I’m living a lie
Telling myself that I just can’t survive
Always trying to hide the map of my life
That’s showing me where I should go
Knowing what I’ve should have always known
I need to be with you tonight somewhere in San Diego

I driving down the map of my life
On a road to San Diego

I’m heading to San Diego

Tonight!

Somewhere In Mexico

SOMEWHERE IN MEXICO - Written by Carroll Bryant 



I’m drinking tequila with a girl named Maria
And dancing on the tip of my toes
Eating burritos with Jose and Tito
While the salt air is burning my nose
I’m living on sunshine, going straight out of my mind
It’s like being in a picture show
Trapped incognito with these pesky mosquito’s
Without a woman that I used know

I feel like a ragweed in lieu of a big sneeze
Harping of the good old days
Getting my tan on while the tourists have long gone
Parting in our separate ways
Drowning my sorrow in the words of tomorrow
Aching for some better shade
Sucking on sand crab like a delirious Arab
Under clouds of cherry marmalade

I woke up somewhere in Mexico
I got lost on some old whiskey Joe
It’s almost like I just don’t care
This old heart is bare
She took it somewhere I can’t go
Somewhere down in that old Mexico
It’s such a long way from Tobacco Road
It’s almost like a water slide
Without the good time
With people I don’t want to know
Somewhere down in Mexico

I’m watching the sunset and buddy I could bet
She’s watching with a different view
Taking in a full moon like a sweet Sunday monsoon
Making love to Mr. you know who
I couldn’t give a good damn so why am I so down man?
I can’t lie to tell the freaking truth
I haven’t any new plans for the sake of my weekend
There’s nothing here for me to do

I woke up somewhere in Mexico
I got lost on some old whiskey Joe
It’s almost like I just don’t care
This old heart is bare
She took it somewhere I can’t go
Somewhere down in that old Mexico
It’s such a long way from Tobacco Road
It’s almost like a water slide
Without the good time
With people I don’t want to know
Somewhere down in Mexico

In the early morning slow rain there is dew on my cold brain
And a daiquiri in my hand
With sounds of the ocean as I move in slow motion
My feet buried in the sand
Feeling so high strung from all of this ho-hum
I wish I was a different man
Senhoritas are singing in my head that is ringing
I wish they’d sing a different hymn

I woke up somewhere in Mexico
I got lost on some old whiskey Joe
It’s almost like I just don’t care
This old heart is bare
She took it somewhere I can’t go
Somewhere down in that old Mexico
It’s such a long way from Tobacco Road
It’s almost like a water slide
Without the good time
With people I don’t want to know
Somewhere down in Mexico
I got lost on some old whiskey Joe
It’s almost like I just don’t care
This old heart is bare
She took it somewhere I can’t go
Somewhere down in that old Mexico
It’s such a long way from Tobacco Road
It’s almost like a water slide
Without the good time
With people I don’t want to know
Somewhere down in Mexico

Dark Screams (Lost Angel)

DARK SCREAMS (LOST ANGEL) - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Your memory keeps filling my head
I keep walking around like the dead
Ever since you left you know that I have been this way

Your apparition keeps following me around
My affirmation is to lose what I found
Such a funny story yet so sad for anyone to say

Our love was the butt of all their jokes
To watch it all go up in smoke is so killing me

I’m screaming in the dark once again
Can’t shut you out when you’re already in
You’re my lost angel now and I can’t figure out
How I let you to become my true sin
Reality is not my best friend
I’m screaming way out loud, but you can’t hear a sound
You’re my lost angel now

Your heated passion keeps flowing in my blood
I’m still the fashion that you always hate to love
Just another trend for the rest of the world to believe

You're just a whisper in the flow of empty words
I keep pretending your syllables didn’t hurt
Living in the pages of another distant dictionary

Our love was nothing or everything
So impossible for me to just throw it away

I’m screaming in the dark once again
Can’t shut you out when you’re already in
You’re my lost angel now and I can’t figure out
How I let you to become my true sin
Reality is not my best friend
I’m screaming way out loud, but you can’t hear a sound
You’re my lost angel now

I thought I saw forever dancing in your eyes
To always be together until I realized
I was caught in a fantasy that appeared to be so real
And though it was painful to be
In love it’s all about how you feel

Our love was just a fabulous lie
One that I cannot deny anymore

I’m screaming in the dark once again
Can’t shut you out when you’re already in
You’re my lost angel now and I can’t figure out
How I let you to become my true sin
Reality is not my best friend
I’m screaming way out loud, but you can’t hear a sound
You’re my lost angel now

My heart is shouting out, but you won’t hear a sound
You’re my lost angel now

I’m screaming way out loud, but you don’t hear a sound
You’re my lost angel now

Toxic Love

TOXIC LOVE - Written by Carroll Bryant



I can feel the fire getting hot
Burning through my skin
These emotions that are wearing thin
If you had a heart, you wouldn’t stop

I can tell there’s magic in your eyes
One touch of your hand
And it’s clear that I’m a ravished man
How long for us to reach the finish line?

It’s so pure
You’re so sure
Innocent persuasions locked away in isolation

It’s so fine
Like cherry wine
Guilty are the pleasures of our lonely sweet endeavors

I can feel you breathe inside my lungs
Addicting me completely
With your illogic toxic sweetness
Stealing all of my oxygen

I can see beyond your simple kiss
You force me to uncover
My desire to be your lover
A rumor that you know I can’t resist

It’s so real
What we feel
Acknowledging with accolades, what we put on display

It’s so plain
Like acid rain
Microscopic particles posing as our obstacles

Our love is just a toxic chemical

It’s so-so
What we know
Thinner than spaghetti, and we think that we are ready

It’s so clear
Like we fear
Falling on a hand grenade for you my love, I aim to save

I can feel the fire getting hot
Burning through my skin
These emotions that are wearing thin
If you had a heart, you wouldn’t stop

Take from me, anything you want
Take from me, everything I got

It’s so pure
You’re so sure
Innocent persuasions locked away in isolation

It’s so fine
Like cherry wine
Guilty are the pleasures of our lonely sweet endeavors

It’s so real
What we feel
Acknowledging with accolades, what we put on display

It’s so plain
Like acid rain
Microscopic particles posing as our obstacles

Our love is just a toxic chemical
Our love is just a toxic chemical
Our love is just a toxic chemical

Swagger

SWAGGER - Written by Carroll Bryant



I like that swagger
I like that look
Baby, you’re going to be my brand new book
From beginning to end, I’m reading you good
Baby, what do you say?
You and me together this way?

It’s just this game I play
Where I take you home and show you the love
I do this everyday
I see a beautiful girl and I lose all control
It’s something I don’t know how to explain

I like that swagger
I like that size
Baby, you’re killing me with those eyes
From your sexy body to your long blonde hair
Baby, take a chance with me?
We could lose ourselves endlessly

It’s just this game I play
Where I take you home and show you the love
I do this everyday
I see a beautiful girl and I lose all control
It’s something I don’t know how to explain

I like that swagger
I like that style
Baby, you’re thrilling me with that smile
From here to eternity and all the while
Baby, what do you mean?
I’m not what I seem

It’s just this game I play
Where I take you home and show you the love
I do this everyday
I see a beautiful girl and I lose all control
It’s something I don’t know how to explain

It’s something that could grow someday

But I do like your swagger, baby girl

All Because

ALL BECAUSE - Written by Carroll Bryant



When you finally find your way
Do you think her memory will fade?
And do you think she ever thinks about you?

When you know you lost your chance
After falling victim to a circumstance
Do you think she feels the way you do?

I could paint the night with memories
If I thought that it would help me
Help me to understand

Where do the lonely go?
From a broken heart to a girl I used to know
She walks around forgetting about me
Where do the lonely cry?
In the dark or underneath the morning sky?
All the while she’s forgetting about me
All because she doesn’t know how to love

When you finally get control
Do you think you’ll lose your soul?
And do you think she’d ever want it back?

When you know you lost your mind
After you break away from useless time
Do you think she’s still on the attack?

I could paint the day with sympathy
If I thought that it would help me
Help me to be a better man

Where do the lonely go?
From a broken heart to a girl I used to know
She walks around forgetting about me
Where do the lonely cry?
In the dark or underneath the morning sky?
All the while she’s forgetting about me
All because she doesn’t know how to love

If ever there come a reason that
I could change the color of the seasons
And fill up all the empty spaces I can find
Would she still be mine?

If ever there come a notion that
I could arrange another hopeless emotion
And pack up all the boxes I can find
Would she still be mine?

When you finally find your way
Do you think her memory will fade?
And do you think she ever thinks about you?

I bet she never does

Where do the lonely go?
From a broken heart to a girl I used to know
She walks around forgetting about me
Where do the lonely cry?
In the dark or underneath the morning sky?
All the while she’s forgetting about me
All because she doesn’t know how to love

I bet she never does
All because she doesn’t know how to love

But Seriously

BUT SERIOUSLY - Written by Carroll Bryant 



When in the middle of the night
And I’m too drunk to see your face
I shake my head and roll my eyes
Laugh out loud and what the freak

I’ve got to come clean with everything
Bare my soul and bare my skin
I really hate to breathe the air you bring
I really hate my heart for letting you in

I can’t blink it all away
Holding hands with your nubility
Couldn’t I see what it was gonna do to me?

Let’s play it out right to the end
One more time
Yeah girl, but seriously
We’re not lovers and we’re not friends
Just two more memories
Yeah girl, but seriously

You know what I mean?

In the stir of echoes when angels cry
And you’re too weak inside your euphoria
You take to tequila and bloodshot guys
Roll them for moments inside of the hysteria

I’ve got to undo my illicit dreams
Bare my head and bare my clothes
I really hate to eat the food you bring
I really hate my life for letting you go

I can’t think of what to say
Holding hands with your animosity
Couldn’t I see what you were gonna do to me?

Let’s play it out right to the end
Blow my mind
Yeah girl, but seriously
We’re not lovers and we’re not friends
Just two more memories
Yeah girl, but seriously

What do I mean?
You tell me

I’ve got to come clean with everything
Bare my soul and bare my skin
I really hate to breathe the air you bring
I really hate my heart for letting you in

I’ve got to undo my illicit dreams
Bare my head and bare my clothes
I really hate to eat the food you bring
I really hate my life for letting you go

I can’t drink it all away
Holding hands with your philosophy
Couldn’t I see what it was gonna do to me?

Let’s play it out right to the end
One more time
Yeah girl, but seriously
We’re not lovers and we’re not friends
Just two more memories
Yeah girl, but seriously

Let’s play it out right to the end
Blow my mind
Yeah girl, but seriously
We’re not lovers and we’re not friends
Just two more memories
Yeah girl, but seriously

Yeah girl, but seriously
Yeah girl, but seriously

A Distant Memory

A DISTANT MEMORY - Written by Carroll Bryant



You came unannounced
Prepared to take me down
And I … fell into your spell

You ran all around
So scared of what you found
And I … was pulled in oh, so well

The world was ours to own
But you left me all alone
And never in our history
Did you ever say you were sorry

Every now and then I might pretend
That somewhere in your heart
There’s a place for you and me

Every single day I watch it fade away
Until I’m just aloof enough to be
A distant memory

You came with the wind
Prepared to feed me sin
And I … opened up my mouth

You danced in my sights
Claiming all my nights
And I … couldn’t find my way out

The world was ours to play
The ways you did betray
And never in the life did you live
In a house where you could ever forgive

Every now and then I might pretend
That somewhere in your heart
There’s a place for you and me

Every single day I watch it fade away
Until I’m just aloof enough to be
A distant memory

The jaded words you used ... to kiss
Hit their target
You never miss the chance
To roll up all your sleeves
Then punch me in the face before you leave
The crazy way you sneak
Is the magic
You can’t believe the trance
Your lips did put on me
And never left a trace of anything

You came unannounced
Prepared to take me down
And I … fell into your spell

Into your hell

You never say you’re sorry

Every now and then I might pretend
That somewhere in your heart
There’s a place for you and me

Every single day I watch it fade away
Until I’m just aloof enough to be
A distant memory

And everyday it seems to me to be
A distant memory

And you never say you’re sorry

Seriously

SERIOUSLY - Written by Carroll Bryant



Seriously, what did we have?
What was so great that I should never forget?
All I remember is hanging on your every word
Telling me how wonderful everything was going to be
Then like a prank phone call, you hung up on me

Seriously, what did we have?
What was it that melted my heart?
A heart you later destroyed
All I remember is you fighting with me
I woke up one morning and you hated me

"We're not friends!" This is what you said
"We're not friends!" And pain in my head
"We're not friends!" Now I am dead

Seriously, what did we have?
What did you throw away?
What made me who I am today?

Seriously

No, really, seriously

What was so great that I should always remember?
Walking straight into the blast on the Eve of September
An explosion that rocked and shattered my world
To think I thought you were my girl

Seriously, what did we have?

Seriously

A Little Bit Of Love

A LITTLE BIT OF LOVE - Written by Carroll Bryant


You're a little bit off your game, girl
Something is holding you down
I'll try and pick you up if you don't bite me
Let's take a ride on the town

I know that I'm not that guy
What you see is who I am
If you don't run I promise not to chase you
Around and around again

Would a little bit of love even help you?
Would a little bit of love light your night?
If I took you by the heart and wrapped you in my arms
Would a little bit of love make it right? 

I'm a little bit off the table 
Playing the game in left field
Waiting for the right time to say the perfect line
Refusing to even yield 

I know that you don't see me
For who I might possibly be
A night in shinning armor fighting for your honor
 Something that you don't need

Would a little bit of love even help you?
Would a little bit of love light your night?
If I took you by the heart and wrapped you in my arms
Would a little bit of love make it right? 

There is only so much that a man can do
To mend the broken heart of a woman
Whatever I give, you know that it's true
Tear it apart and I will still be forgiven
We could try and forgive
We can take back the night 
You and I
And never look back again

You're a little bit off your game, girl
I know that you're about to scream 
I'll take your pawn with my bishop
And you can always keep your queen

You can always be the queen

Would a little bit of love even help you?
Would a little bit of love light your night?
If I took you by the heart and wrapped you in my arms
Would a little bit of love make it right? 

Would a little bit of love even help you?
Would a little bit of love light your night?
If I took you by the heart and wrapped you in my arms
Would a little bit of love make it right? 

If I took you by the heart and loved you until the morning light
Would a little bit of love make it right?

Two People

TWO PEOPLE - Written by Carroll Bryant



Every time I take a breath
It feels like I have nothing left to give

Your words slow dance in my ears
The emotion that I feel won’t live

It won’t live to see the day
You take my breath away again
Never will
Never again

This is how two people act
They carry on as a matter of fact
Turning their heads from the love they were meant to share
And this is how two people behave
Falling victim to their own slave
That lives in the conscious heart somewhere

Every time I see with my eyes
I see the clear blue skies dancing with the dawn

Your words slice into my bones
Leaving me all alone where pictures are drawn

We won’t die fast enough
For me to forget about all this stuff
Never will
Never again

This is how two people act
They carry on as a matter of fact
Turning their heads from the love they were meant to share
And this is how two people behave
Falling victim to their own slave
That lives in the conscious heart somewhere

Every time I take a breath
I feel there is absolutely nothing left
There is absolutely nothing left to give

Your words slow dance in my ears
 Leaving me to the ending years
Of a life that has doomed me where I live

I won’t live to see the day
When you will take my breath away again
Never will
Never again

This is how two people act
They carry on as a matter of fact
Turning their heads from the love they were meant to share
And this is how two people behave
Falling victim to their own slave
That lives in the conscious heart somewhere

That slave is love and fear

This is how two people play
Never listen to the things they say
To each other … or even to themselves

This is how it has to end
State of shock is the only state I can get in
Never will
Never again

This is how two people act
They carry on as a matter of fact
Turning their heads from the love they were meant to share
