Scars Of Love

Written By: Paul S Chapman

SCARS OF LOVE
Paul S Chapman

ON THE FACES OF THE SOLDIERS
WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM
AND ON THE ARMS OF THE BRAVE ONES
WHO HAVE SAVED US FROM THE FIRES
AND ON THE KNEES OF THE MOTHERS
WHO HAVE PRAYED FOR WAYWARD CHILDREN
YOU WILL FIND THEM
YOU WILL FIND THEM…

SCARS OF LOVE
ON THE SKIN
PROOF ON THE OUTSIDE
OF WHAT LIES WITHIN
LET US ALL BOW OUR HEADS
AND THANK OUR GOD ABOVE
FOR ALL THE SCARS OF LOVE
SCARS OF LOVE

ON THE SHOULDERS OF THE FARMERS
WHO HAVE CARRIED OUR HUNGER
ON THE BACKS OF THE MINERS
WHO HAVE WARMED US WITH THE COAL
AND ON THE LIPS OF THE PREACHERS
WHO HAVE NEVER FEARED THE TRUTH
YOU WILL FIND THEM
YOU WILL FIND THEM

CHO…

AND ON THE HANDS
AND THE FEET
OF THE CARPENTER
FROM GALILEE
CAN YOU SEE?

Man Thing

Written By: Brian Henningson/Paul S Chapman

MAN THING

GIRL DON’T STAND THERE IN THE YARD JUST A LOOKIN’
CLIMB UP IN THIS TRUCK AND LET’S TAKE HER FOR A RIDE
YOU GOT YOUR HAND ON YOUR HIP I BET I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKIN
WHY’D THAT FOOL GO OUT AND BUY A FOUR WHEEL DRIVE
BUT I CAN’T SEE
YOU AND OUR BABIES DRIVIN’ (RIDIN’) ROUND IN A TIN CAN
ITS JUST A MAN THING

CALL THE KIDS AND GET YOUR PURSE AND WE’LL GO GET SOME SUPPER
THEN WE’LL TAKE A RIDE OUT TO THE COUNTRY FOR A WHILE
THERE’S A PLACE ON THE LAKE I WANT TO SHOW YOU
IT’S A FIXER UPPER
I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKIN’ ITS NOT YOUR STYLE
BUT I CAN’T SEE
RAISING OUR FAMILY WHERE THERE AIN’T NO ROOM TO RUN
ITS JUST A MAN THING
ITS JUST A MAN THING

YOU MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND ME
BUT I NEED YOU TO TRUST ME
TO LOVE YOU THE BEST WAY I CAN
ITS JUST A MAN THING
ITS JUST A MAN THING

ALL I EVER WANT TO DO
IS BE THE ONE TO TAKE CARE OF YOU
AND LOVE YOU, THE BEST WAY I CAN
ITS JUST A MAN THING
ITS JUST A MAN THING

On Her Bed

Written By: Paul S Chapman

“On Her Bed”

There’s a half-moon hangin
Outside her window
And she’s watchin the door
Holding to that pillow
As the glow of 2 a.m.
Turns her soft skin red

And she whispers to the darkness
“He’s a good man,
That old car must have broke down
That’s why he’s late again
He loves me, he’ll touch me, softly
When he comes in.”

And she lies
On her bed
Cause the truth
When it’s said
Is much too hard to hear
Brings too many tears
To her eyes
So she just lies
On her bed

Back when she met him
She had no way of knowing
There were seeds in his heart
And they started growing
When he let the wine
Pour like rain
On his life
And she whispers as the headlights
Dance across the ceiling
“He’ll be good to me
He knows how I’m feeling
He’ll be changed
When he says my name
As he comes in…”
