Lyrics

Something New

Written By: Jimmy Mazz

The sun is rising
The moon disappears
The day begins
The nights are no longer here

Another morning
Another smile
Another day with you just holding me awhile

CHORUS
Beside me
Inside Me
Completely

You make me feel alive yes you do
You bring out the things in me I thought I could not do
You let me open my eyes and for me that’s something new
And for me that’s something new ---Chorus End---

You take me as I am
You love me for myself
You tell me what I need to hear
Yes you know me so well

There is nothing I can change about the way you are
You’re everything you need to be
You’re the only one I want to see

REPEAT CHORUS

The sun is setting beneath the mountain’s edge
And I lay me down to sleep with you inside my bed

Another day has passed
Another dream that ends
Another night of love you hold me once again

I love you as you are
You love me just the same
The morning sun appears
You gently call my name
I look into your eyes
You look into my heart
I want to say I care
I just don’t know where to start when you’re

REPEAT CHORUS

You make me feel alive yes you do
You bring out the things in me I thought I could not do
You let me open my eyes and for me that’s something new
And for me that’s something new
And for me that’s something new

Big Brown Eyes

Written By: Jimmy Mazz

Everybody thinks I'm just a lonely soul
Just Waiting for this world to take me under
But I know that someone else is out there
Just Waiting for my love to grow

Every time I think about the loving
Carin' and the sharin' I need I know
I find myself just falling back, and underneath I go
Losing all the good time that I've known

CHORUS
I should think about the lies
I should think about the tries
I should think about the cries
But all that I think about, are those big brown eyes

All my life I've waited for the right one
To give me all the love I always dreamed of
But when I found the love I always wanted
She chewed me up and spit me out

I've learned don't give up my heart do fast
I have another nail inside my past
It's time that I forget what could not last
and find myself another

REPEAT CHORUS

REPEAT VERSE FOUR

Ordinary Man

Written By: Jimmy Mazz

If I were a sculptor, I'd carve you in stone
The likeness that I make of you would live in my home
I'd sit down beside you, you and me alone
I'd tell you everything I feel, and everything I've known

If I were a poet, I'd send you my poem
With words of love and car and truth, my heart is your throne
I'd try to make you understand with words soft in tone
To let you know how much of me you truly own

CHORUS
But I'm an oridinary man, I just can't understand
In my dream it's only you
I just work my normal day for an ordinary pay
With no help to show me through

If I were a prophet, my God would help me say
The perfect words to melt yoursoul and make you want to stay
I'd find out how to win your love, I would be shown the way
I'd learn to have you to want me
So for this I pray

If I were a minstrel , with songs of love I'd play
A melody to hypnotize you each and every day
Every time a note I write, beside you it would lay
Beside my note I'd be there too if you said I may

CHORUS
But I'm an oridinary man, I just can't understand
In my dream it's only you
I just work my normal day for an ordinary pay
With no help to show me through

A Good Friend

Written By: Jimmy Mazz

I have my lovers, I have my flings
I live my life of pleasurable things
Sometimes acquaintances make me feel fine
But a good friend
A good Firend
I mean a good friend
is so hard to find

I make enough money so I can slide by
My job seems to fit me well
A clean life I try
Hardtimes are slim to none
Things are falling in line

CHORUS
People, things and places
Don't mean much to me
All the streets and faces can't help me to see
Without one you know so well
It doesn't mean a thing
Without someone you can tell noone hears you sing

REPEAT VERSE ONE

REPEAT CHORUS

Sometimes acquaintances make me feel fine

REPEAT CHORUS
