Love Ray

Written By: Bart Steele

Love Ray
lyrics & music by Bart Steele © 2007

I beg for forgiveness, please bless my soul
You always take the lead then you take control
Tie me up in shackles n' whip me to the bone
I just have some fears of being left alone.

At the break of dawn, your sun it never stays long
Besides you would not like me if you knew my song.
I always let you pain me...it's the safest place
I'd do anything to see that smile on your face.

And I try to get away from your love ray
I get blind from the light you shine my way
But your sun never goes down at the end my day

I love it and I hate it, now please let me go
You've got some shady business and I can't miss my show
Just a word before I go out on the road
Here's my middle finger, now Iet me lighten my load.

Repeat Chorus

Room With A View

Room With A View by Bart Steele © 2006

Welcome to my room with a view
there's really nothing else I can
do from inside of this womb
I can hear lots of screams, they ain't ready for me
or so it seems
You can still abort, you wont get sued for no
tort in no court of law
I can still relate people break contracts
every god-damn day

Wow that was some ultra sound even if you dont
want me around these parts
I just wanna live I promise there's a lot I can
give to this fucked up world
Gimme one last chance to rock out the world and to
make everybody dance
In my room with a view there's really nothing else I can
do from inside of this womb

Think I Met An Angel

Written By: Bart Steele

Think I Met An Angel Last Night
Words and Music by Bart Steele

Think i met an angel last night, I tried to let go but she held me tight
She came down from the heavens and
she shined her light so bright
And I think I met an angel last night.

Wonder how she fell into my world
dressed in whiet she slipped into my room
She clipped her wings she lost her job
She fell down from the sky

Bridge : (If i could have you for just a moment
we'd slip away to that place we found
I love you baby with one condition
you stick around and wait for me) X 2

Think i met an angel last night, I tried to let go but she held me tight
She came down from the heavens and
she shined her light so bright
And I think I met an angel last night.

She clipped her wings she lost her job
She fell down from the sky

I Was Told

Written By: Bart Steele

I Was Told words/music by Bart Steele

I was told when I was young there's no such thing as love
I remember lookin' to the sky he said there's no one up above
he was nice to let me know it's all about the bling
he said to me time and time again only losers get guitars and sing

If it ain't no good you got to walk right out the door
got to take a stand don't have to take it anymore

I was told when I was young stay away from the blacks
funny cause I like black girls I ain't ever goin' back
he was nice to let me know stay away from the immigrants
now I heard he dates one too that's where his time and money went

If it ain't no good you got to walk right out the door
got to take a stand don't have to take it anymore

I was told when I was young that my momma was a whore
that she drank a lot and she took some pills couldn't stand her anymore
he was nice to show himself when I became a man
the only way to break a cycle is to get up and take a stand

If it ain't no good you got to walk right out the door
got to take a stand don't have to take it anymore

Can't Keep Me Down

Written By: Bart Steele & Rusty Daniels

Cant Keep Me Down: 2007

At the end of the day when the smokes been cleared away
bustling scene has scurried clean everythings been burned away.
Get back up can't keep me down dig my soul out from the ground
The fire burns and the ashes rise, everythings been burned away

chorus (Cant keep me down, gotta stick around
ain't burnin' up down with my town)

As the time kept creepin' on it gets lonely when you're alive
I asked the man what's going on are you sick or just gettin' high?
He said 'this is my walk that I do in this town you can burn me up I ain't going down

Can't keep me down, gotta stick around
ain't burnin' up down with my town

Im gonna stick around
ain't goin' down with my town

Palestrina

Written By: Bart Steele

Palestrina
lyrics/music by Bart Steele

Well I know about you secular fools Marcellus told us to follow the rules
no harmonies to be heard you must hear our lord god's word

It's the reformation of information just a situation of twisted religion and tonal termination
I look to the heavens and your ringin' that bell if you didn't we'd all be in hell
I'd like to thank you Palestrina but first I'd love to meet you

And our father whose art is in heaven he gave us a third, a fifth, and a seventh
praising the pope to commisserate our sounds you saved it was your fate

(chorus)

The text of the mass you knew it would last the Council of Trent from days of our past
imagine a world where no one is free and no harmonies
No you'll never find me
No harmonies no you'll never find me

(chorus)

Nineteen

Written By: Bart Steele

Nineteen
lyrics & music by Bart Steele (2007)

Have You ever been with a rock and roll queen
Finest girl you ever seen she was just nineteen

she'll take you for a ride
come and get inside
eat you up and wave bye bye
all she wants to do is fly

Fly away with me, how sexy we could be
drivin' down that one way street
come fly away with me

she'll take you for a ride
come and get inside
eat you up and wave bye bye
all she wants to do is fly
she was just nineteen
come fly away with me

Everything At Once

Written By: Bart Steele


Everything At Once - lyrics & music by Bart Steele © 2007

I just wanna be every place, and meet everyone, and see every face.
I will run to the place i was before...I will run.

No I dont need no sympathy, I turned on the lights and i did see,
my angle, she was runnin next to me...runnin' free.

(Ch) Oh, i did see...all the memories of my life
And the picture frames...they cut me like a knife...like a knife

I just wanna be...be drug free, just feel my pity in this big city,
I did run to the stage i was before...I did run.

(Ch)

I just wanna be....left alone, n' be ADD, alone in my home,
I can do everything at once........at one time
