Lyrics

I'm Gonna Lay You Down Now

Written By: Jeffrey Clarke


V1
She spends a little more time in the mirror, everyday,
‘cause youth’s begun to fade,
She remembers when, her looks could turn heads around,
But now she has her doubts,

Channel 1:
But I, can see, what she really needs,

Chorus 1,2:
Hey I’m, gonna lay you down now,
On a satin sheet and a bed of fire,

Yeah I’m gonna lay you down now,
And kiss you deeper as the flames climb higher,

V2
She’s the one who, makes this house a home,
How she does it, I’ll never know,
She’s tucked the little one in, for the third time tonight,
Seems she never gets to unwind,

Channel 2:
But, I know, where we’re gonna to go,

Bridge:
There’s a room upstairs,
And I always like to take her there,

Channel 3:
And I, can see, what she really needs,
And, I know, where we’re gonna go,

Chorus 3:
Hey, I’m gonna lay you down now,
On a satin sheet and a bed of fire,

Yeah, I wanna feel the passion,
As our kisses deepen and the flames climb higher,

Hey, I’m gonna lay you down now,

Small Town Gone

Written By: Jeffrey Clarke

V1
You see that road there that cuts right through this field,
That was our farm not long ago,
The County paved, the ground my Grandpa tilled,
Just to help our town grow,

Channel 1
That land passed through three generations,
And was handed down to me,
Don’t know much about the way things should be,
But I look around, and this is what I see,

Chorus:
We got the Mega mart, Tall mart, Super mart, Wal-mart and Quick mart on the side,
We got the fast food vendors and the big money lenders who will take us all for a ride,
Red lights, green lights, everybody’s taillights and nobody gets along, and I want to know,
Where has my small town gone, (our, your),
Where has my small town gone, (our, your),

V2
The town council said it’d be good for us all,
We’ve got to keep up with the times,
But the corporate chains shut down our family owned shops,
And they’ve taken our pride,

Channel 2
We now get our paychecks from strangers,
We’re barely making what we need,
Don’t know much about the way things should be,
But I look around, and it’s sad to see,

Channel 3
They say every town goes through changes,
And progress is the key,
Don’t know much about the way things should be,
But I look around, and this is what I see,

Again

Written By: Jeffrey Clarke


V1
I haven’t seen you in awhile,
I’m sure you’ll show-up soon,
You’ll appear just like a ghost, and then you’ll want to know if I still feel, for you,

V2
There’s a part of me that wants,
To let you back in my life,
But when I wake up all alone, deep down in my soul, I know,
what’s right,

Ch:
‘cause I
Don’t want to see how far we’ll make it,
Don’t want to hold on ‘til the end,
Don’t want to play the game, ‘cause it always ends the same,
Again, ooh oh oh,

V3
I don’t know how many times,
I’ve watched you come and go,
But there’s a voice that I must find, from somewhere down inside, so I,
Can say no,

Br:
Then you call to ask me how I’ve been,
Just getting used to life without you again,
