Different Kind of Blue (lyrics by Mark Ferrari)

Tonight let me take you home let me lay you down let me put you to sleep
Your eyes look so at ease as I tuck you in and you whisper don’t leave me now
Leave the cold outside, I’m too tired to drive, can I stay the night

Cause I feel lonely too and my hearts feeling blue
I’ve been broken and bruised, I’ve been scarred and I’ve used
But I’m not perfect too, I did some things I never thought I’d do
Without you life’s a different kind of blue

So I raise my lips up to your ear and I say the things that you long to hear
Like I need you, I miss you, I think about you all the time and I
I tried to write but my words had no meaning,
I tried to smile when on the inside I’m bleeding
I tried to love but my empty heart has no feeling left inside
God know you cried and I don’t want to let a day go by
Without giving us another try

Cause I feel lonely too and my hearts feeling blue
I’ve been broken and bruised, I’ve been scarred and I’ve used
But I’m not perfect too, I did some things I never thought I’d do
Without you life’s a different kind of blue

And I’ll be there in a hurry, don’t have to put your makeup on
Cause I’ve been loving you for so damn long
And nothing I do could ever get me through, I need to know

Cause I feel lonely too and my hearts feeling blue
I’ve been broken and bruised, I’ve been scarred and I’ve used
But I’m not perfect too, I did some things I never thought I’d do
Without you life’s a different kind of blue
And I’ll always miss you…

You were there when I took my first breath
You laid me down on your chest
You smiled at me and gave me my name
And if even for a night everything was right because you loved me

I remember my first day of school
I don’t know who cried more me or you
And as you wiped our tears you tied my shoes
And even for a night everything was right because you loved me

You showed me right from wrong
When I would sing you’d sing along
When I was weak you stayed strong
And if even for a night everything was right because you loved me

You always knew just what to do
You always knew just what to say
And when I grew up and went away
I said momma I’ll be fine, I’ll call you all the time because you loved me

Family called come here quick, momma needs you she’s really sick
Doctor said she doesn’t have much time
Oh god this can’t be it, keep fighting momma don’t you quit
At least until I say goodbye
When I arrived she was lying in that hospital bed
She smiled at me and then she said..
Little boy take off that hat, you know I like it when your hair’s combed back
Momma life can be so unfair

Desperately I fell to the floor, I love you mom I should have called you more
It’s so hard to say goodbye….

Out of Me

Out of Me (lyrics by Mark Ferrari)

When I was a young boy around age nine, I loved Lisa wanted to make her mine
So I wrote her a letter, dotted the eyes, crossed my t’s and I learned how to fly
I had a broken arm at the time, I ran to the corner to mail her my lines
When I tripped and fell, oh god it hurt like hell
She called me three days later and she said she wanted to see
If I wrote the words and I said, “Yeah, they’re coming out of me.”

When I was sixteen I formed a band, we made some music, we made some fans
We made some plans, made some noise, we were five young crazy teenage boys
I would write all the melodies, we would come up with harmonies
It was summertime, glory days, and all those midnight serenades
And one night these three girls came up to me
They said, “Is that you singing?” I said, “Yeah, that’s coming out of me.”

How I miss those days, when everything I had slowly fades away
So I look inside, when I turn the key, the music’s coming out of me

One night I met a beauty queen, she asked if I could be her king
I said, “You seem real sweet, you act real nice, but if I may here’s some advice.
I love music and I love to play and no ones going to stand in my way
I danced with the devil, I’ve seen a ghost and when I raise my glass I toast the most.”
She’s married now but I’m still chasing dreams
I guess she got her ring but she didn’t get it out of me

How I miss those days, when everything I had slowly fades away
So I look inside, you know I still see the music’s coming out of me

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh

It took a long time to get right here, a lot of heartache, a lot of tears
I paid my dues, I faced my fears, I wouldn’t trade it for a million years
They play me on froggy radio, I opened for the George Jones show
I can’t explain how I feel inside but it feels so good just to be alive
And maybe backstage "The Possum" will come up to me
He’ll ask me if I wrote these songs and I’ll say, “Yeah, they’re coming out of me!”

How I miss those days, when everything I had slowly fades away
When I look inside, when I turn the key, the music’s coming out of me
Of me, of me, of me….
I’m writing words cause they’re coming out of me
And I’m singing the songs that are coming out of me
