Biography

Born and raised in Nashville, music is her blood. "I grew up with all kinds of music from the Beatles to Bluegrass to Show tunes," says Betsy. "I've always know writing music was what I'm suppose to do, I tried for many years to ignore the urge but the melodies caught up with me. " Writing songs just makes sense to me. Betsy has dedicated the last 3 years to writing songs and scripts for films, "there is still so much to learn, I'm helping edit my first video for the song, Beautiful Disappointment. Betsy reflects... "There are so many songs yet to be written"

Lyrics

Beautiful Disappointment

Written By: Betsy Wilson

Verse:
She's no stranger to disappointment
No floral dresses or breakfast in bed
She listens to the songs go around in her head
Songs speak volumnes differently each time

Chorus:
She puts on her lipstick before she sleeps
In case she meets a perfect stranger and falls in love again
She wants to be beautiful in her dreams
A beautiful dreamer is all that she ever wanted to be

Lovely handfuls of Vegas on her mind
She'd love to slap them all for wasting sweet time
She carefully created a life just for hers
Now they've all grown and gone and no one seems to need her

Chorus:
She puts on her lipstick before she sleeps
In case she meets a perfect stranger and falls in love again
She wants to be beautiful in her dreams
A beautiful dreamer is all that she ever wanted to be

Her life is a Beautiful Disappointment
Her life is a Beautiful Disappointment
Her life is a Beautiful Disappointment

Here's to Remembering You

Written By: Betsy Wilson

I saw you standing at the bar your head thrown back as…you haven't a care in the world…..

You were smiling, you were so happy, Rosey Cheeks I could see my reflection in your bliss …

Chorus:
I go back to that old familiar pain....A love long lost and a heart that will never beat the same.....

Tell me who holds you when you sleep and wipes the tears from your eyes, that you've cried…Have the bad dreams gone about a girl with no home………..

Then I realized that I once loved you but that was so many a life times ago…

Our life together was full of laughter, where the melody and words flowed freely from me to you…

Chorus:
I go back to that old familiar pain....A love long lost and a heart that will never beat the same

Tell me who holds you when you sleep and wipes the tears from your eyes, that you've cried…Have the bad dreams gone about a girl with no home………..

I wanted to reach out and touch you but I know too much time has passed between us…

I'd like to thank you for this time…to reminisce about the life we once shared my love...

Chorus:
I go back to that old familiar pain....A love long lost and a heart that will never beat the same

Tell me who holds you when you sleep and wipes the tears from your eyes, that you've cried…Have the bad dreams gone about a girl with no home………..

So here's to…Remembering you

So here's to…Remembering you

So here's to…Loving you

Beneath Me

Written By: Betsy Wilson

You and I came together forever accidentally
You and I fell to circumstance and probability

You fall beneath me and all over me
You fall beneath me and all over me

You and I are drowning in this sea of possibilities
The skies opened wide to a world of opportunities

You fall beneath me and all over me
You fall beneath me and all over me

You and I took a chance on love and all its difficulties
You and I took that leap of faith and all its disabilities

You fall beneath me and all over me
You fall beneath me and all over me

Hold on for Dear Life
