Lyrics

Treat Me So Mean

Written By: David Anthony Chalfant

You'll have to excuse me if i seem confused
I don't believe I've ever been--
ever been used before and
You'll have to excuse me if I seem a little sore
I don't believe I've ever had my heart ripped out and thrown on the floor and--
You'll have to excuse me if I get upset and
I admit I do regret not being able
to hide the way I feel about you now!

(chorus)
Oh-- Didn't you know that you would hurt me so--
but there you go--
and you, you don't--
don't even try to console me--
Oh-- why can't you see that you are wounding me--
and I never would have believed that you would go and treat me so mean--

You'll have to excuse me if I can't recall
anything you say at all-- 'cause after all--
I just don't believe a word you say--
And you must forgive me if I look away--
I turn away--
I walk away--
I just can't stay--
knowing you don't feel the same way--

(chorus)

And you'll have to excuse me if I don't look you in the eye--
don't want to cry--
I'd rather die then know
that you've decided you don't want me in your life--

(chorus)

You'll have to excuse me if I can't recall
anything we shared at all--
'cause after all--
what's the point if you don't believe in me

Always & Forever

Written By: David Anthony Chalfant

Always & forever--
Is what you used to say--
don't you remember--
or has it gone away--
You say you're leaving--
this is the end--
And you say you've found somebody new--
and he's more than just a friend--
Then why are you crying--
if you don't believe--
that all of the promises we made to each other
are really meant to be--
And I think...

(chorus)
Maybe you're wrong--
Maybe you're not gone--
Maybe it's not over--
Why don't you think it over again--
If you come back to me--
Maybe then you'll see--
We were meant to be the ones who make it,
and always stay together--
Always & forever--

Always & forever--
is so easy to say--
But they're only words--
when you act this way--
And he says live for yourself--
Don't think about tomorrow--
Don't think about the one you leave behind--
and he's got something for the sorrow
(that you're gonna feel)--
And I think...

(chorus)

And all of the dreams--
that we made together--
I'm still holding on....
'cause maybe you're not gone

Before a Bit of Magic (goes away)

Written By: David Anthony Chalfant

Pages turn and faces change before our very eyes--
Candles burn out just before we realize--
that there's something special
in the light that they dispel--
Though our minds forget it--
our hearts know very well--

(chorus)
But it's hard to find the time
or even find the words to say--
before a bit of magic goes away-- goes away--

We find enchantment--
just to look into the night sky--
and catch our breath if shooting star should catch our eye--
and for one moment,
just one moment in the awe--
our lives are perfect for the magic that we saw--

But it's hard to find the time or even find the words to say--
before a bit of magic goes away--

I held your hand--
I touched your cheek--
I felt your warmth--
I saw your smile--
I kissed your lips--
tasted your breath--
and you were mine for just a while--
and I was happy--
It was bright and it was fast--
I would have told you if I'd known this wouldn't last--
I would have told you if I'd known this wouldn't last--

But it's hard to find the time or even find the words to say-- before a bit of magic goes away--

Please, She Said

Written By: David A. Chalfant

Please, she said
Please don't look at me
I couldn't bare if you don't like what you see
Please, she said
Please don't hold my hand
I couldn't bare it if it had to end

Please, she said
Please go on without me
Just leave me behind
Then she said
Find someone new
Put me from your mind
'cause I'm a waste of your time

(chorus)
But I won't be the one
to reject her
And I can't be the one
to protect her
And I can't be the one
to make it better
And I can't be the one
to Forget her

Please, she said
Please don't notice me
I know I take up too much space
But maybe if you'll just look away
I might disappear-- without a trace
Me, and my big fat face
Oh, don't you hate my big fat face!

(Chorus)

Please, she said
as she turned away
and her teardrop hit the floor
And I cannot forget
what I heard her say
As she slowly closed the door

I can't go on

(chorus)

I can't forget her -- Sad eyes
I can't forget her -- deep sighs
I can't forget her -- Soft cries

I can't for get her -- Goodbye

Note: I wrote this song watching my wife suffer severe eating disorder, and being helpless to save her.

Run Away With Me

Written By: David A Chalfant

Sometimes I watch you sleep
And I can hear you breathing
when you're lying close to me
And everything is finally at peace

The worries of the day
All finally melt away
In the warmth of my bed
You'll find a place where you can
rest your head
And once again...

(chorus)
Run away with me
I'm too tired to sleep
Pretending to be strong
Will only make you weaker
Baby, run away with me
And don't worry what they'll say
You know, together we can make it
one more day
And I'll wipe your tears away

And I can hold your hand
But I can't understand
What you never say to me
'cause you're afraid I wouldn't want to see
Who you really are inside
But you know that isn't true
And I swear to you
I'll look into your darkest nightmare
And if I can-- I'll steal you away from there. So...

(chorus)

And even if you're far
I feel like you're still near me
If I should call your name
I wonder if you'd hear me
And would you recognize my voice
And then if you have-- if you the have the choice, would you...

(chorus)

Where The Road Turns

Written By: David A. Chalfant

I guess we're where the road turns
The world seems divided
You see things your way
And I see things my way

And it seems impossibe to leave
all that we started
And to believe
it's possible to stay

(chorus)
Well maybe we should give this a little more time
And maybe we should try to talk it over
And we'll sit across the table
making faces at each other
You'll say you're sorry
And I'll be on my best behavior
We'll sit across the table
Still in love with each other
You'll try not to show it
And I'll be on my best behavior
I'll be on my best behavior

You say you want to know where the road takes you
But you're afraid there isn't room for me
How did we ever come to making this decision
This life's uncertain, certainly

(chorus)

'Cause I know we should be together
So how can we just say goodbye forever
When I know we should be
together
So how can we just say goodbye
Say goodbye

I guess we're where the road turns
Are we divided
Are you going on alone
Have you decided to leave me behind
To leave me behind
where the road turns
