BandRockPop

I am a songwriter / musician using the talents of a few of my friends and my daughter to record songs on my demo CD : "The Houghton Project"

Biography

I record, produce and perform most of the tracks for my songs. I have a home studio that I do the majority of the recording in. Just recently my daughter Heather joined me with not only an intrest in songwriting, but vocals that absolutely amazed me when I heard her sing for the first time. I'm looking forward to good things happening....

Lyrics

Mr. Right

Written By: Bob Houghton

MR. RIGHT

She’s 33 and she’s never been married
Her clock’s still ticking but that’s all right
Her friends tell her it’s bound to happen
So she keeps on searching every night

Well she knows that its true love will happen
With one call………….. tonight
2nd VERSE
With a boyfriend here and a boyfriend there
She changes her mind like the color of her hair
The bars are all open and there’s no last call
Time is closing in, her backs against the wall….
CHORUS
Well she’s always looking for Mr. Right
But Mr. Close enough would do tonight
Mr. Close enough, Mr. Close enough
She’ll take Mr. Close enough…… tonight
2nd VERSE
Heading out again, the search is still on
Everywhere she looks, she finds Mr. Wrong
The time is now, its do or die,
Week after week she’s with a different guy...
CHORUS
Well she’s always looking for Mr. Right
But Mr. Close enough would do tonight
Mr. Close enough, Mr. Close enough
She’ll take Mr. Close enough……. tonight

BRIDGE
She changes her mind……
She changes her mind……
She changes her mind……
She changes her mind………. way too much
CHORUS
Well she’s always looking for Mr. Right
But Mr. Close enough would do tonight
Mr. Close enough, Mr. Close enough
Mr. Close enough, she’ll take Mr. Close enough ….. tonight

Every day, every hour

Written By: Bob Houghton

Every Day, every hour

Verse
Looking out the window,
Staring at the moonlight
Shining down from the sky
My mind drifts off to another place
Another place and time…….

It’s then that I realize………….

Chorus
Every day, every hour, every week of the year
I’m in love with you
Every day every hour, every week of the year
I’m in love with you

Bridge
Well, I’ll never take you for granted
And I’ll never let you go….
I don’t always tell you I love you
So I just wanted you to know…

Chorus
That every day, every hour, every week of the year,
I’m in love with you….
Every day, every hour, every week of the year
I’m in love with you …..

Hold on

Written By: Bob Houghton

We were lost until the angels came.
We’ve endured all we can stand…
(Musical Break)

The moments they, keep passing by,
Just keepsakes in our lives.
Every day is another reason,
Another reason to ……

Hold on to what you believe in
Hold on to what you know is right
Hold on to every moment
Hold on just one more night
Hold on to all you believe in
Hold on just one more night….

(Break)

Looks can be deceiving
And lies disguise the truth
The headlines say we’re on the mend
But reality shows that’s just not true

When will the storm end?
When will the sky turn blue…?

(Lead Guitar…)

Hold on to what you believe in
Hold on to what you know is right
Hold on to every moment
Hold on just one more night

Hold on…
Hold on…
Hold on…
Can we hold on
Just one more night…..

We were lost…
Angels came…
We were found…
They called our name…
Hold on…
