half-hearted apology

Written By: paul drake

it's a half-hearted apology
I know it now
and you want the man
that I want to be
can't you see
It's not a run around
it's not like I paint the town
all i'm asking you to see
is honey please
i'm only me
up in a tree
twisting free
in the breeze
come on I wasn't dishonest
you know I told you
I'm a rambler honey
and you were the one who might make it be a memory
sure i know love is blind
there ain't no other kind
to make you keep my company
honey please
i'm only me
up in a tree
twisting free
in the breeze
I've been a gambler
and you know I've been a clown
I've been a fool some
hey yah you know I've been around
I've been the lost one
out on the ragged edge of town
I don't wanna play hung dog anymore
come on honey cut me down

the rocket and the hurricane

Written By: paul drake

I didn't mean to make you cry
and if you thought now that I didn't need you well that's a lie.
I could've told you from the start when you said your name I wrote it on my heart

never thought that I'd make it
never thought I could hang on to a hurricane
but then I thought I should
and I know that you'll catch me if ever I fall
nothing more than this and I got it all

I never meant to make you blue
but when you picked up with me I bet that you never knew
just what was rollin through that door
but the thing I like is you kept coming back for more

bet you never thought you could make it
bet you never thought you could
hang on to a hurricane
but then I think you should know that I'll be there to catch you if ever you fall
I think about all of this and I got it all

I thought I'd lay low and let it lay cause it seemed to be so far away but I knew there'd come a day when I'd have to stand up or walk away
and like you said so many times when I hung myself for those other crimes
and I couldn't see the light."If I have to I'm gonna work all night. I'm gonna make it right.
