Why Can't I Get Over you?

Written By: C Perks

Why can’t I get over you?
Since you said that we were through.
I don’t know what I’m going to do.
Why I can’t I get over you?

I think about you everyday.
Ever since you went away.
Now nothing in my life is right.
I cry myself to sleep at night.

It’s happened to me times before.
My lover walking out the door.
This time it hurts so much more.
Like my heart is broken on the floor.

Why can’t I get over you?
Since you said that we were through.
I don’t know what I’m going to do.
Why I can’t I get over you?
I don’t know what I’m going to do.
Why I can’t I get over you?

It's Hard to Write a Bluegrass Song

Written By: C Perks

I’m trying to write a bluegrass song,
I been sitting here trying all day long,
But my momma didn’t die, my poppa didn’t die,
My girl still loves me, and she didn’t die.

Well the creek didn’t rise, and the snow didn’t fall,
I don’t see footprints, or writing on the wall,
I never had to leave my mountain home,
I got a couple dogs, so I never feel alone.

Well the train didn’t wreck, and the car didn’t crash,
I got a good job, so I got a little cash,
Never went to war, and I never did ramble,
Daddy didn’t drink, Daddy didn’t gamble.

We don’t have to order through the mail no more,
Wal-Mart opened up a big new store,
The President says the economy’s better,
My favorite aunt just knitted me a sweater.

I’m trying to write a bluegrass song,
I been sitting here trying all day long,
But with Jesus watching over me, I can’t go wrong,
Sure is hard to write a bluegrass song.

Big Love

Written By: C Perks

Days were long and dull
And nights were short and fun.
I still remember all the songs we sung.
The folks were old then, but we were young.
And we had a big love.

People knew we had a big love.
A love that came down from above.
Drifting down on the wings of a dove.
Like a really big love.

Times have changed and now you’re far away.
I can’t remember all the songs from yesterday.
But I remember you walking away,
From our big, big love.

People knew we had a big love.
A love that came down from above.
Drifting down on the wings of a dove.
Like a really big love.

Then my heart was broken in so many ways.
A lifetime shattered into lonely days.
A vision that got lost in a haze.
A distant memory of our big, big love.

People knew we had a big love.
A love that came down from above.
Drifting down on the wings of a dove.
Like a really big love.

People knew we had a big love.
It was a really big love.

Too Late to be Downtown

Written By: C Perks

Too late to be downtown
Too late to be downtown
Too late to be downtown, tonight.
Too late to be downtown
Too late to be hangin’ round
Too late to be downtown, tonight.

I thought that I would have
One more night to see you.
I thought tonight would be the night.
Then you rode away
In his brand new Chevrolet.
Now I’m alone and I’m downtown tonight.

Too late to be downtown
Too late to be hangin’ round
Too late to be downtown, tonight.
Too late to be downtown
But I found myself all turned around
Too late to be downtown, tonight.

I thought that I would have you
Each and every day.
Thought I would see you every morn.
Thought I would have you.
Thought I would see you.
Thought I would have you from now on.

Too late to be downtown
Too late to be hangin’ round
Too late to be downtown, tonight.
Too late to be downtown
But I found my life broke on the ground
Too late to be downtown, tonight.
Too late to be downtown, tonight.
Too late to be downtown, tonight.
