Lyrics

Anyway

Written By: Shane Wingo

ANYWAY

I just sat down to write this song for you
What words, what phrases should I choose
I could compose a line so sweet and sugary,
But that just wouldn’t be you and God knows that wouldn’t be me (well maybe it would)

So I’ll just sing la, la, la, la, la that’s all you need to hear from me, anyway
La, la, la, C'est la vie I’ll just say love, that’s what is waiting right here for you anyway

Anyway, this probably ain’t how most would picture a love song
But I think, maybe that’s why so many are gettin’ it so very wrong
Cause love can’t just be a lovely picturesque scene of tranquility,
Not all the time, not most of the time, but
Sometimes it’s just about you being you and me being me, and that making us happy

C’mon let’s sing la, la, la, la, la isn’t that all we really need anyway
La, la, la, C'est la vie we’ll just say love, come get a hug , kiss my check and we’ll be on our way

Anyway that you move
Anyway I’m with you

I just hope, I just hope this will be your love song
Cause I’ve been working way too long to still be getting it wrong
So c’mon and take my smile, c’mon and take my words,
C’mon and take my intentions, you know they’re good
Why don’t you just wrap ‘em up nice and neat so they’ll fit right into your heart

And let’s sing la, la, la, la, la, la, la just a la, la little bit softer now, anyway
La, la, la, la, la, la I la, la love you, la, la love anyway you are

Put On Love

Written By: Shane Wingo

PUT ON LOVE

I think I’m just half a man
I don’t expect you’ll understand
But I think that I can start again
If you will only hold my hand

Now I’ll try to get it right
A little more dumb than I am bright
But, if I keep you here between my sights
I might stumble onto what is right

Oh, who is me
Oh, who am I
Oh, who I’ll be
Oh, who I’ll find

So I choose to put on love
Its heavy and its cumbersome
But, I don’t like the man that I’ve become
So I choose to put on love

It makes me tug and fight and stretch
Seems like this just barely fits
It’s snug and pinches me a bit
But change won’t come without some sweat

Oh, who is me
Oh, who am I
Oh, who I’ll be
Oh, who I’ll find

When I think I’m all but done
Finished the life I’d just begun
I’m gonna take these songs that I have sung
And serenade you by the setting sun
Then I’ll kiss you till the morning comes
And I’ll find you by the rising sun

Waiting In Blue

Written By: Shane Wingo

Waiting In Blue

Thank the Lord for days free of clutter
Cause silence clears like no other
The breeze relieves stress’ toll
St Augustine’s smoke sooths my soul
Crowder’s melodies soft and low
I get the call, you had to go

Was she waiting there all in blue
Was she been holding back her kisses just for you
Did you hold her so tight you made one from two
Did she mention you’re forgiven, you’re new

Memories, reminders they run fast and free
From years gone by and moments recently
Love and loss, joy and pain
Confusion and clarity, yet love remains
It leads and prompts, it pushes me and shoves
It moves these feet and pumps this blood

Was she waiting there all in blue
Her freshly curled hair, her eyes in bloom
Did you hold her too tight from years of longing to
Did you know that while you were missing her, she was missing you too

Time it robs both the rich and the poor
And we’re all left here wanting just a little more
Controlling our tongues is all we really have
So just stop here, find a friend …

and say …

“I love you”
“I need you”
And say “Thank you”

And, “I’ll be here, yes I’ll be here
‘til death knocks down my door,
I’ll be here
Yeah, I’ll be here.”

Musty Floorboards

Written By: Shane

MUSTY FLOORBOARDS

Smell the pine of musty floorboards
Hear them squeak beneath my step
Feel them give without quite breaking
See them stained where I have wept

Oh your memories are sweet, but remembering’s distasteful
Memories bring a smile, but I’m remembering all the crap you pulled

Close my eyes to see more clearly
Lift my hands up to my face
Pull these thoughts in ever closer
Memories of your sweet embrace

Push these thoughts far away from me
Tie them tightly to the side
Securely in that distant corridor
In the darkness they’ll reside

Oh your memories are sweet, but remembering’s distasteful
Memories bring a smile, but I’m remembering all the crap you pulled

Here’s the sting I thought had left me
There’s the stage that set the scene
Where’s the calm I brought in with me
Hostage to these bellowed screams

Summers before this room embraced me
Held me, her beloved child
Now her arms are amputated
Leaving me orphaned, alone and wild

Oh your memories are sweet, but remembering’s distasteful
Memories bring a smile, but I’m remembering all the crap you pulled

Pull the door and shut it tightly
It’s still so hard to walk away
Keep the memories here created
Lock those remembrances here to stay

Oh your memories are sweet, but remembering’s distasteful
Memories bring a smile, but I’m remembering all the crap you pulled

Slipping

Written By: Shane Wingo

SLIPPING

Have you been dropped?
Scattered filthy pieces on the floor
Were you lost?
Praying for a word and nothing more

You said, “Why have you abandoned me?
What’s with this hypocrisy?”

God damned you to this
With an adamant fist
You pressed flesh against the table
Said you ain’t willing you ain’t able
To be party to this folly anymore

Have you fallen?
Was no one there to cradle you at all?
Were you frightened?
When snickering amusement met your fall

You said, “Why have you abandoned me?
What’s with this hypocrisy?
Why have you forsaken me?
I’m still blind, why can’t I see?

God damned you to this
With an adamant fist
You pressed flesh against the table
Said you ain’t willing you ain’t able
To be party to this folly anymore
God spit in your face
You’re a pitiful disgrace
Alone and empty, you’re forgotten
You’re secure here on the bottom
There ain’t no one to look down on anymore

Have you hit yet?
Are the dregs all that you dreamed they would be?
Does it make you happy?
Seems like you always knew this would be your destiny

Then you said, “Whoever abandoned me
Is far from sight, away, unseen
I’m alone here with my fears
With thoughts and words they might disappear”

God sit here with me
Pull up a chair, have a glass of tea
Have I always been down-hearted
Am I doomed to where I started
Cause I long to be much further on than this
Please bandage my legs
Give me courage and a little faith
That I will not die alone here
That there’s friendship to be found here
That You might know what You’re doing after all
