    You Are Pain

    © ℗ 2015 Marco J. Santiago, All Rights Reserved

     

    You Are (Sweet, Sweet) Pain (Official Lyric)

     

    A love at first sight

    No, that just ain’t right

    Lust in the first sense

    Now that really fits the evidence

     

    You, the younger beauty

    Me, the music man

    You, with your first pageant prize

    Had I been just a little bit wise

     

    I would have known that

     

    You are pain

    Sweet, sweet pain

    Whenever you’re around me

    I can feel the coming rain

    And did I happen to tell you

    You are pain

    But I love you anyway

     

    A whirlwind love affair

    Passed us by in bliss and blur

    Not short on emotions

    Not long on time and never pure

     

    Whenever you came near me

    I didn’t have to see or hear you

    I felt I was coming apart

    From the beating on my heart

     

    But,

     

    You are pain

    Sweet, sweet pain

    Whenever you’re around me

    I can feel the coming rain

    And did I happen to tell you [that]

    You are pain

    But I love you anyway

     

    Love…. Pain

    Love…. Pain

     

    I had to leave you

    It was the best thing I could do

    I was living an imaginary lifetime

    That didn’t have room for two

     

    Now that you’re near again

    You with him and me with her

    I feel my life falling apart

    From the banging on my heart

     

    But,

     

    You are pain

    Sweet, sweet pain

    Whenever you’re around me

    I can feel the coming rain

     

    You are pain

    Sweet, sweet pain

    Whenever you’re around me

    I can feel the coming rain

    And did I happen to tell you [that]

    You are pain

    WouldaCouldaShoulda

    © ℗ 2015 Marco J. Santiago, All Rights Reserved

     

    Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda (Official Lyric)

     

    I was in love

    I was thinking forever, [that]

    We would be together

     

    You had your plans

    But at least for a short time

    Being with me would do you fine

     

    I would have loved you

    I could have loved you forever

    But I should have loved you better

     

    Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda

    Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda

     

    We were such young fools

    About love, didn’t know much

    Beyond the physical touch

     

    We were such good lovers

    But bad all the same

    By the end, so many lies and games

     

    I would have loved you

    I could have loved you forever

    But I should have loved you better

     

    Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda

    Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda

     

    I was not ready

    I didn’t see it coming

    I wanted to keep working on the loving

     

    You just walked away

    Met another part-time lover

    Didn’t even need time to recover, [no]

     

    I would have loved you

    I could have loved you forever

    But I should have loved you better

     

    Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda

    Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda

    Whiskey, Bourbon, Tequila And Gin

    Whiskey, Bourbon, Tequila, & Gin (Official Lyric)

     

    Who’s that knockin’ on my door

    Who’s that wantin’ in

    I know it’s not you tonight

    ‘Cause you don’t give a shit

     

    Who’s that knockin’ on my door

    Who’s that raisin’ hell

    Will I rollover and let ‘em in

    I don’t really think I will

     

    Who’s that knocking at my door tonight

    It’s just … Scotch whiskey, Kentucky bourbon, tequila, and gin

     

    What’s gonna happen to me tonight

    What’s gonna happen to me

    Do I have the will to fight

    Or will I just give in

     

    What’s the reason you’re on my mind

    What’s in it good for me

    I know you’d only be unkind

    So why can’t I let you be

     

    Who’s that knocking at my door tonight

    It’s just … Scotch whiskey, Kentucky bourbon, tequila, and gin

     

    No, no, I won’t be … letting you in

    No, no, I won’t be … trading fast sin for sloe gin

    So why don’t you all … just get away from here

    And leave me alone … to drink on my own tears

     

    Who’s that knocking at my door tonight

    It’s just … Scotch whiskey, Kentucky bourbon, tequila, and gin

     

    Why is it that I still love you

    How will I ever get free

    I know the bottle won’t tell me true

    And the truth is what I need

     

    Who’s that knockin’ at my door

    Who’s makin’ all that din

    If it’s really you my love

    You know I will let you in

     

    Who’s that knocking at my door tonight

    It’s just … Scotch whiskey, Kentucky bourbon, tequila, and gin

     

    Who’s that knocking at my door tonight

    It’s just … Scotch whiskey, Kentucky bourbon, tequila, and gin

     

    No, no, I won’t be … letting you in

    No, no, I won’t be … trading fast sin for sloe gin

     

    Who’s that knocking at my door tonight

    It’s just … Scotch whiskey, Kentucky bourbon, tequila, and gin

    We're Insane

    © ℗ 2015 Marco J. Santiago, All Rights Reserved

     

    We’re Insane (Official Lyric)

     

    We’re insane ... we’re insane

    We’re insane ... we’re insane

     

    Worrying about whether someone’s black or white

    Ain’t that insane?

    Worrying about whether someone’s left or right

    Ain’t that insane?

    Worrying about someone for whom they love

    Ain’t that insane?

    Worrying whether someone believes in God or not

    Ain’t that insane?

     

    We’ve all been on this one world forever

    Traveling through an endless, empty space

    So why can’t we get along together

    To find a better way; to make a better day

     

    Cause,

    We’re insane ... we’re insane

    We’re insane ... we’re insane

     

    To have more than you need, but not be satisfied

    Ain’t that insane?

    To never try to see it from the other guy’s side

    Ain’t that insane?

    To never really hear to what other people say

    Ain’t that insane?

    To always have to have it you own way

    Ain’t that insane?

     

    We’ve all been on this one world forever

    Traveling through an endless, empty space

    So why can’t we get along together

    To find a better way; to make a better day

     

    Cause,

    We’re insane ... we’re insane

    We’re insane ... we’re insane

     

    Education, information, explanation,

    revelation, consideration

     

    There’s a way; there’s a way

     

    Imagination, innovation, transformation,

    liberation, celebration

     

    There’s a way; there’s a way

    Nothing Else Will Do

    Nothing Else Will Do (Official Lyrics)

     

    I need you and nothing else will do

    I need you and nothing else will do

    You’re the sugar in my coffee

    And the honey in my do

     

    I need you and nothing else will do

    I need you and nothing else will do

    You’re the drug for my pain

    And the heat for my flame

     

    I need you and nothing else will do

    I need you and nothing else will do

    You’re the sun in my sky

    And the sparkle in my eye

     

    I need you and nothing else will do

    I need you and nothing else will do

    You’re the toy for this boy

    And the laughter for my joy

     

    I need you and nothing else will do

    I need you and nothing else will do

    You’re the queen of my heart

    And the light in my dark

     

    I need you and nothing else will do

    I need you and nothing else will do

    You’re the love of my life

    And the dancing in my shoes

    Live In The Sunshine

    © ℗ 2015 Marco J. Santiago, All Rights Reserved

     

    Live In The Sunshine (Official Lyric)

     

    You say the truth is nothin’ … to believe in

    Telling a few black lies ain’t … no kind of sin

    You say that playin’ fair won’t … let you survive

    I say let’s lighten up and … take a little drive

     

    Into the sunshine

    Into the sun

    Dance in the moonlight

    But live in the sun

    Live in the sunshine

    Live in the sun

    Dance in the moonlight

    But live in the sun

     

    Live in the sun

     

    You say that life ain’t simple … black and white

    We’re just all in the grey dawn … before the night

    You say that life’s just struggle … and then we die

    I say at the end of the tunnel … it always gets bright

     

    Live in the sunshine

    Live in the sun

    Dance in the moonlight

    But live in the sun

    Live in the sunshine

    Live in the sun

    Dance in the moonlight

    But live in the sun

     

    Live in the sun

     

    You say the darkness is the … best place to stay hidden

    To play with snakes and mongoose … but not get bitten

    I say we stoke the fire … and keep the light from dying

    Let’s aim for the clearest skies … and keep on flying

     

    Into the sunshine

    Into the sun

    Dance in the moonlight

    But live in the sun

    Live in the sunshine

    Live in the sun

    Dance in the moonlight

    But live in the sun

     

    Live in the sunshine

    Live in the sun

    Dance in the moonlight

    But live in the sun

    Live in the sunshine

    Live in the sun

    Dance in the moonlight

    But live in the sun

     

    Live in the sun

    Live in the sun

    Live in the sun

    Lord, What Are We Going To Do?

    © ℗ 2015 Marco J. Santiago, All Rights Reserved

     

    Lord, What Are We Gonna Do? (Official Lyric)

     

    Do….

    What are we gonna do?

    Do….

    What are we gonna do?

     

    Can’t we get along with one another

    Invoke the Golden Rule

    End unnecessary pain and suffering

    On this ship of fools

     

    Can’t we just come together

    To end all this foolishness

    End the strain and suffering in this world

    Or will it take another rain

    To wash it all away

     

    Do….

    What are we gonna do?

    Do….

    Lord, what are we gonna do?

     

    Some of us cheat ‘cause we think it’s easy

    Some of us steal if we won’t get caught

    Some of us lie ‘cause we think it won’t matter at all

    Some of us hurt the loves we’ve got

     

     

     

     

     

    Some of us think that the ‘the good life’

    Means someone else should pay

    We’ve got to live our own lives

    And not just waste precious time

    Until it’s time to die

     

    Do….

    What are we gonna do?

    Do….

    Lord, what are we gonna do?

     

    ((People, we’ve got to come together

    End all this foolishness

    We don’t need any more false gods or devils

    We’ve got to clean up our own mess)) ((not recorded))

     

    People, we’ve got to help one another

    Let’s make love, not make pain

    End the strain and suffering in this world

    Or will it take another rain

    To wash us all away

     

    Do….

    What are we gonna do?

    Do….

    Lord, what are we gonna do?

    Anybody Don't Believe In God

    © ℗ 2015 Marco J. Santiago, All Rights Reserved

     

    Anybody Who Doesn’t Believe In God (Official Lyric)

     

    Long yellow hair and deep sea green eyes

    Long freckled legs that go on for miles and miles

    No matter what mood she happens to be in

    She’s always ready to commit a little sin

     

    Anybody don’t believe in God’s

    Never seen my baby with her red dress on

     

    With her red dress on

     

    A heavenly body that’s a pure miracle

    To explore her curves and graces I would surely risk hell

    ‘Cause when making love she’s one of those kind of ladies

    Who can keep you somewhere between heaven and hades

     

    Anybody don’t believe in God’s

    Never seen my baby with her red dress on

     

    With her red dress on

     

    [As] she’s walking by with that sinful little smile

     

    Everyday I say a little bitty prayer, and

    Every night I lay there with my soul bare

    I’m telling you true she’s a heavenly vision

    Who could make anybody come down with some kind of religion

     

    Anybody don’t believe in God’s

    Never seen my baby with her read dress on

    With her red dress on

    With her red dress on

    With that red dress on

     

    [As] she’s walking, walking on by with that sinful little smile

    Promise to treat me true

    She will treat you right

    Take care of daily business

    And rock you all night

    Gettin’ down to the sound of Mr. Barry White

    When their done, get you up again

    And never give their old men

    Young pretty women

    Can make you do what they want to

     

    Slip on the black number

    Or the one that’s red

    Your mind goes empty

    Your brain goes dead

     

    Young pretty women

    Make their own rules

    Young pretty women

    Are a rainbow of blues

     

    Young pretty women

    Are a rainbow of blues

    Southern Rose (Redux) (Official Lyrics)

     

    Tour bus left Savannah

    Headin’ for Texarkana

    Through the heart of ‘Ole Dixie’

    Only stopped to buy some good Southern whiskey

     

    Over the Mississippi

    Passed through Vicksburg, passed around that whiskey

    Wanted to stop in Ole Tallula

    But we passed right on through ya

     

    Travelin’ down those Southern roads

    Found me a Southern Rose

    Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

    Who would’ve thought, who would’ve known

     

    Travelin’ down those Southern roads

    Found me a Southern Rose

    Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

    A soft, sweet smellin’ Southern rose

     

    Pulled in a juke joint diner

    South of Shreveport, south of the line yea

    Slingin’ slop and pushin’ beer

    Was the sweetest little thing I’ve seen ‘round here

     

    Dark long hair and big blue eyes

    With a kisser that would only make ya smile

    Talked like an angel, walked like a demon

    The kinda woman that is totally worth keeping

     

     

     

    Travelin’ down those Southern roads

    Found me a Southern Rose

    Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

    Who would’ve thought, who would’ve known

     

    Travelin’ down those Southern roads

    Found me a Southern Rose

    Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

    A soft, sweet smellin’ Southern rose

     

    Oh … Southern rose….

    Oh … Southern rose….

    Oh … Southern rose….

    Oh … Southern rose….

     

    Got out the boys in the band

    Played a serenade from Avenue Grand

    Took some time for her to send me a sign

    Took even longer to persuade her to be mine

     

    Billy, Joe, and daddy, too

    Came by and warned me I better be true

    Mama came out to wave the bus goodbye

    Promised we’d be back around by and by

     

    Travelin’ down those Southern roads

    Found me a Southern Rose

    Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

    Who would’ve thought, who would’ve known

     

     

     

     

    Travelin’ down those Southern roads

    Found me a Southern Rose

    Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

    A soft, sweet smellin’ Southern rose

    Home (Official Lyric)

     

    When I’m feeling down and low

    I think of you and I’m not alone

    I think of home, I think of home

    I think of you

     

    When I’m tired of the smoke and lies

    I think of you and I fully revive

    I think of home, I think of home

    I think of you

     

    Home….

    Love….

    I’m on the road again

    But it’s you I’m thinking of

    I think of home, I think of home

    I think of you

     

    If someone tried to come between me and you

    We’d sit and talk about it, have a laugh or two

    You are my home; you are my home

    I only love you

     

    When I’m going through those tough times

    I think of you and they’re gone with a sigh

    I think of home, I think of home

    I think of you

     

     

     

     

    When I’m warm and tucked into bed

    I dream of you and the love we share

    I think of home, I think of home

    I think of you

     

    Home….

    Love….

    I’m on the road again

    But it’s you I’m thinking of

    I think of home, I think of home

    I think of you

    I think of you

    I think of you
