I Used To Be

Written By: Charlie Boice

I Used To Be

I used to be, so much younger
I used to be, head of my class
I used to be, full of thunder
I used to be, built to last

All in all, a subtle change
A few less hairs, a few more pains
Looking out from the mirror
I know I’m not who I used to be

I used to be, so much thinner
I used to be, in pretty good shape
I used to be, a first place winner
I used to be, like the guy that wore a cape

All in all, a subtle change
A few less hairs, a few more pains
Looking out from the mirror
I know I’m not who I used to be

I know I’m not the only one
Whose life it seems is on the run
We all wake up to find out
We’re not who we used to be

I used to be, able to hit the high notes
I used to be, a dancing fool
I used to be, ready with all the good jokes
I used to be, so very cool

All in all, a subtle change
A few less hairs, a few more pains
Looking out from the mirror
I know I’m not who I used to be

I used to be

OnLine Good Time

Written By: Charlie Boice

I met her in a chat room, she was Seeker Fifty Eight
Logging in at midnight, her screen was never late
I went by monte cristo, lower case never bold
I sent her lines of poetry, that shined like pirates gold

We’ll have an On Line Good Time Tonight Tonight
We’ll have an On Line Good Time Tonight Tonight Tonight

We started sharing secrets, the kind that make you blush
Details of our daydreams, we took our time there was no rush
The hours passed like minutes, we lost all track of time
We laughed out loud a lot you know, like kids that talk in rhyme


We’ll have an On Line Good Time Tonight Tonight
We’ll have an On Line Good Time Tonight Tonight Tonight

We wondered should we meet one day
Or would that break the spell
And take away our fantasies
We’ve come to write so well

We kept each other wanting more, at the end of each return
We searched for hidden meanings, in every single word
We never questioned motives, or who we really are
The world is at our finger tips, we’re shooting for the stars

We’ll have an On Line Good Time Tonight Tonight
We’ll have an On Line Good Time Tonight Tonight
We’ll have an On Line Good Time Tonight Tonight
We’ll have an On Line Good Time Tonight Tonight Tonight

One Of Those Girls

Written By: Charlie Boice

She whispered in my ear, the numbers in the book
Give me a call so I can take another look
She said, first impressions are really nice
But we’ll need more time to break the ice
Call me, the numbers in the book

She said, meet me on the beach at the waters edge
We’ll cross our hearts and take the secret pledge
We’ll share some wine and forget the time
And we’ll dance with the waves until sun shines
Meet me on the beach at the waters edge

She stares at me sending chills up and down my spine
With the wave of her hand she’s the only thing on my mind

She said, I hope you don’t think I’m one of those girls
I’m just a sweet simple thing not much with words
But I’ll tell you what, if you listen up
I’d like to fill your coffee cup
I hope you don’t think I’m one of those girls

She said, I hope you don’t think I’m one of those girls

Like I Do

Written By: Charlie Boice

Driving to the dance, with my new girlfriend
She's got leopard skin pants and a matching hat
Putting on makeup in the rear view mirror
She paints a smile just like a Chesire cat

I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why I love you like I do
but I do

Her gypsy eyes, wander through the dance floor
Winking at the boys in their high rolled collars
She strarts to dance like she's hypnotized
I've sseen that dance before but it cost a dollar

I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why I love you like I do
but I do

Everbody keeps staring
But baby I'm not caring
Cause every night you come home with me

Well baby, I know I'm driving you crazy
But i can't believe that what you want is what I got
Just maybe, my minds a little hazy
When you wrap your arms around me in your lovers knot

I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why I love you like I do

I'll Get Around To It

Written By: Charlie Boice

Laying on the couch, watching T.V.
A black and white movie and a cup of tea
I know, I’ve been a little remiss
Sooner or later, I’ll get around to it

Standing in the shower, warming my bones
Just how many drops, will make a gallon
I know, I’m wastin’ water like this
Sooner or later, I’ll get around to it

I’m gonna roll up my sleeves, make a plan
I’m getting’ ready to go
But the sun isn’t out, the winds from the south
I guess I’ll just stay home

Playing guitar, singing a song
About everybody’s problems and where they’ve gone wrong
I know, I’d like to scratch that itch
Sooner or later, I’ll get around to it

The yard is a mess, the car needs a wash
The house could use a coat of paint
But if I start now, after all these years
I’m afraid the neighbors might faint

Just one drink, maybe two
A pepperoni pizza and a brand new tattoo
I know, but I just can’t quit
Sooner or later, I’ll get around to it
Sooner or later, I’ll get around to it
