Lyrics

Better With You There

Written By: Dan and Rich Reising

Title: Better WIth You There
(D.Reising/R.Reising)

Intro:

My friends down at the factory say i'm, actin' mighty strange
It's not that I look different, but somehow somethin's changed
They ask me "hows the wife and kids?" I tell em, "theyre all doin great"
But head hung low I turn, and just keep walkin' through the gate

Chorus:

Cuz when I came home from work at night you were always there to greet me
With so much love my troubles seemed to fade and turn to smiles
You'd smother me with kisses, sitting in that big ole' chair
Life was so much better...with you there

Verse:

So I've been tryin' to pass the time without ya but things just ain't the same
I stare at that old collar, rememberin' how I'd holler out yer name
When I'd say, "come here boy...let's go for a ride:
You'd beat me to the car each time with the windows down
Wind blowin...in your face

Chorus:

Cuz when I came home from work at night you were at the door to greet me
With so much love my troubles seemed to fade and turn to smiles
You'd smother me with kisses, sitting in that big ole' chair
Life was so much better...with you there

(SOLO)

Bridge:

I know ya had to leave
But it's so hard on me
To go on without my best friend

Chorus (instrumental)

Now when I get home from work at night, your not there to greet me
Suddenly I'm troubled, and it's hard for me to smile
Left with no more kisses, sittin' alone in our old chair
Life was so much better
Life was so much better back when...

Repeat Chorus

Carolina All Alone

Written By: Dan Reising

Title: Carolina All Alone
(D.Reising)
Key of: A# Major

Verse 1:

Got home around 3, on a Sunday afternoon
And tossed my car keys on the counter..just like I always do
But as I sat in that old living room..and I..I kicked off my shoes
I couldn't help but stop and wonder...if you were missin' me too

Pre Chorus:

See I...I've tried so hard to lock those memories away
But i'd be lyin' if I told ya...I didn't want you to stay

Chorus:

So I'll just sit around thinkin' bout love and all those times we used to share
And what I'd give to just see you smile, or run my fingers through your hair
Wonderin' if your gonna think about me...while your out there on your own
In Carolina, All Alone...(followed by hums)

Verse 2:

See I've been trying to find some peace of mind since you...walked out the door
Tryna figure out where we went wrong, and why you don't love me anymore
I spent those nights alone...waitin by the phone...just hopin' you would call
Cuz ud say "Baby I'm Comin Home...I guess I need you after all"

Pre Chorus:

But by tommorow you'll be 1000 miles away
Wish I could find a way to change your mind
But theres nothin' I can say

Chorus:

So i'll just sit around thinkin' bout love and all the times we used to share
And what I'd give to just see you smile, or run my fingers through your hair
Wonderin' if your gonna think about me...while your out there on your own
In Carolina, All Alone...(followed by hums)

Guitar Solo:

Pre Chorus:

You see I..thought by now that all those memories would fade
But i'm dying inside to know that I have to let you walk away...

Chorus:

So I'll just sit around thinkin' bout love and all the times we used to share
And what I'd give to just see you smile, or run my fingers through your hair
Wonderin' if your gonna think about me...while your out there on your own
In Carolina, All Alone...(followed by hums)

Wonderin if you'll ever think about me while your out there on your own
In Carolina all alone

Be Somebody

Written By: Dan Reising

Title: Be Somebody
Written By: D.Reising
Key of Cmajor

Verse 1:

He grew up out in Southern Ohio in a little house down on Jamestown Drive
Well his mama' was a singer and daddy played the bars at night
Playin piano by 5 years old he was captivated by rock and roll
Just a lonely little dreamer with his sights set on something high
Well he always swore he'd make his family proud
Yeah he'd find a way to make it big somehow

Chorus:

He's gonna kiss all his family and friends goodbye
And leave his whole world behind
To stand at the end of that long, long line...
Trying to be somebody

And when he hands his mama' the keys to the new front door
Of the house of her dreams in L.A.
Yeah that'd be the day when he could finally say
He's gonna be somebody

Verse:

So..He moved out by the age of eighteen and got a nine to five down on route 18
Getting paid to wait the tables at his favorite little bar and grill
3 months later he was fallen for the waitress she was a beautiful blue eyed girl
She was his everything, the center of his whole world
But they grew apart and she broke his heart in two
Just when he thought that all his lonely days were through

Chorus

He's gonna kiss all his family and friends goodbye
And leave his whole world behind
To stand at the end of that long, long line...
Trying to be somebody

(Guitar Solo)

Bridge:

Yeah all his life he's tried to find the place where he'd belong
He's been praying for this day to come for so long

So he kissed all his family and friends goodbye
And left his whole world behind
To stand at the end of that long long line
Trying to be somebody
Cuz' when he hands his mama' the keys to the new front door
Of the house of her dreams in L.A.
Yeah that'd be the day when he could finally say, he's gonna be somebody

Repeat Chorus
