Lyrics

White Dress

Written By: K. Arrington, J. Martin, and S. Wallace

Knew that I would get here
He’s in a tux, steps to my love
And it, didn’t look how I imagined
In front of me, he’s sparkling
Don’t have to leave
That porchlight on
Feelings on his sleeve
He comes home to me
Chorus
He said
Why don’t you
Why don’t you
Why don’t you
Why don’t you
Why don’t you
Why don’t you
Put on that white dress
And live your best
And if I say I do
It’s happening, love actually

Walking down the aisle
Ain’t so scary
When you’re aligned
We’re two of mind
He got down on one knee
Said it’s time that we, live happily
The architect that drafted
my dream’s hue
Came to make my
Fairytale come true
Chorus
Bridge
Said he talked to my poppy
His mama, the preacherman
Said he talked to my mama
My best friend, the produce man
Said he told his mechanic
The banker, the policeman
Everyone he passes on the street
God told him choose me
Choose me
Chorus

Heat from Another

Written By: K.Arrington, J.Martin, and C.Newkirk

I can’t tell a lie
Often I have tried to deny
The heat from another
Alone can seem so right
Never meet the light
‘til you give yourself over
The heat from another
Chorus
All my life, I have tried to fight
Something that was right
I draw arrows, slings justified
The heat
Packed up my windy kiss
I wanna love that fits
He wants to give me his
The heat from another
Nothin’ left
You are on my doorstep
I sent you right, sent you left
The heat from another
Chorus
Cut marionette strings
You are my lottery
And my arms, your cable cars
The heat from another
You go backstage
And, I feel the same
The eggshells are swept away
The heat from another
Chorus

All Said and Done

Written By: K.Arrington and J.Martin

Woke up this morning
Not to your snoring
To my own company
Goodbye to sad songs
Regained my footing
I did this to me
Made the decision
To bring down the endin’
World not against me
You said you loved me
I told you to leave
Chorus
When it’s all said and done
It looked like fun
When it’s all said and done
You don’t do that to someone you love
You’ll be a good man to another woman

Your presence was fitting
Your love freely given
Tried to win my heart
Your 9-5, your 6-10
Always played your part
I want to tell you
Always carry you deep inside of me
Though it’s over
You still root for me
Chorus
Bridge
Here I am
Say goodbye
Here I am
Say goodbye
Don’t ask why
Say goodbye
Don’t ask why
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Chorus

Hurry on, Silly Boy

Written By: K.Arrington, J.Martin, and C.Newkirk

Mama said every pot has a lid
My eyes must be pulling tricks
I know that you are hers
Not cleaning my plate for
Sloppy seconds or tired thirds
You movin’ closer to me
Speaking softly
Tryna jedi mind slick me
Seems she can’t stimulate
Your mind
Seems she can’t enforce
The bottom line
Chorus
Hurry on, silly boy
Hurry on, silly boy, home
My integrity is not your mistress
You are her unfinished business
Hurry on, silly boy
Hurry on, silly boy, home
This conversation started ended
This love affair started ended
You say, you always think about me
Crowded thoughts
Not the first to feel this way
I’ve played the role you’d like to designate to me
But this time
I’m having my own say
Have a little dignity
A dash of loyalty
You look like the kind I’d like
If there was a her to him might bite
Still have my sight
Won’t wear no tin foil ring
In a minute, the truth’ll stop stingin’
Chorus
Poor thing, she probably knows
To her, a man equals home
No respect, you’re reckless
Stop trying to swerve on my exit
I remember when I was her
When what wasn’t seen
wasn’t heard
You must like to hear her screams
When she shows up in her pajamas
Not part of this Wild West drama
Some advice, learn your lady
Stop trying to thicken my gravy
Chorus

Front Door

Written By: K.Arrington, J.Martin, and C.Newkirk

The truth we fought
Real hard against
Seasons changed
The best defense
You haven’t found
What you’re looking for
I’m looking at the front door
My world I worked
So hard to embrace
Success has given me
Her first taste
You haven’t found
What you’re looking for
I’m looking at the front door
Chorus
Blame me, tame you, frame you
It ain’t the case
Love is just the starting block
Rearrange me, defame you
Repay you
In this here race
Love is just the starting block
And, you haven’t found
What you’re looking for
I’m looking at the front door
We know the time’s arrived
In the beginning
We’d lay down our lives
You haven’t found
What you’re looking for
I’m looking at the front door
Some teachers aren’t for keeps
I dangle from a skyscraper
You leap
You haven’t found
What you’re looking for
I’m looking at the front door
Chorus
Bridge
Lend me your eyes so I can see
What’s keeping you away from me
I don’t wanna stay
Don’t wanna leave
But you’ve stopped talkin’ to me
I know you want me
To do your dirty work
Here are your walking papers
Baby, this sure hurts
Baby, baby this sure hurts
It hurts
Chorus

Sight Unseen

Written By: K.Arrington and J.Martin

One guess how you got here
Made it through my bodyguards
You want to invest, my dear
Think my stock’s sky up
Left your request, to suggest
Blowin’ in the wind
Gotta say it loud
Love’s a lesser sin
Chorus
Two guesses how you made it here
Said you’re no stormchaser
X marks the spot, no fear
Private investigator
Said you’re an art collector
I’m the biggest draw
You consistent cargo
We are in talks
Suppose I’ll lift the embargo
Bridge
Do you see me, I was crumbling
Not bitter, no quitter
Shero, past tragedies
Bullet-proof
Love is patient, kind
But no fool
Three guesses why you’re still here
You wanna know why I’m not taken
Answered your own question
Know I’ve been forsaken
Said if you had a chance
Never need an alibi
Something this good comes ‘round Once a lifetime
Said you’d never leave my side
