Phillip Coomer is a Singer / Songwriter akin to Neil Young doing John Denver. If you like Snoop Dogg you'll hate his music. Coomer is so new and original that when you hear one of Coomers songs you'll be saying give us more. If you've been looking for poignant original sound your search is over.

Biography

Phillip Coomer is a Texas singer / songwriter who writes songs with no "Hit Potential" whatsoever. He was taught to write songs by his Grandfather Tom Dennis. Coomer still writes songs today with his grandfathers 1938 Gibson guitar. Influenced by John Denver, John Prine and other singer/songwriters Coomer has developed a fresh, unique soulful attack to love songs. There is nothing like him. Phil was raised in North Fort Worth and graduated from TCU.

Lyrics

Sunsets

Written By: Phillip Coomer

Sunsets on fire, the night is a coming
Like a tide across the great range
Behind the blue darkness, storm clouds painted
With a silver stroke of light
I tip my hat down, and I think about you
Wishin you were here tonight

And no I can’t help how my heart sings about you
No more than I could jump o’r the moon
The birds and the trees sing about you
Know I’ll be coming home soon

Down to the river, she’s dry nearly gone now
The land is dusty & dry
But up on the mountain, the coyotes are howlin
At the break of a brand new night
In camp dogs are barkin, at the coyotes howlin
But they don’t go too far from the light.

And no I can’t help how my heart sings abou you
No more than I could jump o’r the moon
The birds and the trees sing about you
Know I’ll be coming home soon

There’s days that are gone now I dearly miss them
I won’t trade tonight for those days.
Bed roll is for sleeping on the promise of tomorrow
Takes all the pain of yesterday
I’m just a blink in the eye of all time
It don’t matter much what I say

And no I can’t help how my heart sings about you
No more than I could jump o’r the moon
The birds and the trees sing about you
Know I’ll be coming home soon

The birds an the trees sing about you
Ya know I’ll be coming home soon

I’ll be coming home soon

Star

Written By: Phillip Coomer

When she was a kid, She thought she would be
An actress in the movies and on TV
But Hollywood never made the call
They left a star in the sky to fall

Now she sips her wine from a Dixie cup
Her limousine is my pickup truck
She’s the star that you see in my eyes
She is a celebrity in the eyes of a man like me
She’s the star that you see in my eyes

A country girl is full of dreams,
Cinderella just waitin to be+
But the ball didn’t last so long
and her prince turned into me

Now she sips her wine from a Dixie cup
Her limousine is my pickup truck
She’s the star that you see in my eyes
She is a celebrity in the eyes of a man like me
She’s the star that you see in my eyes

Break

And when the stars come out in heaven
And when day is all but gone
She puts her hand inside of my hand
And the starlight leads us home

And she sips her wine from a Dixie cup
Her limousine is my pickup truck
She’s the star that you see in my eyes
She is a celebrity in the eyes of a man like me
She’s the star that you see in my eyes

I Hate the way I love you

Written By: Phillip Coomer

You know,
I hate the way I love you and I’m not the only one
Who worships you , and the ground you walk on

And I hate the way I love you, Its no great surprise
I listen to you, I look in your eyes

And I hate the way I love you, girl just look at me
The man that I used to be is weak in the knees

Oh take a step back and see
what loving you has done to me
and you’ll see

How I
Love the way you love me, the way you hold me close
I can feel the beat of the only heart I know

And I love the way you love me, the things you say and do
What you say with your eyes and the breath that you breathe

And I love the way you love me, its all that I can do
Just to live in this light that I share with you

Oh take a step back and see
what loving you has done to me
and you’ll see

How I
I hate the way I love you and I’m not the only one
Who worships you , and the ground you walk on

Oh take a step back and see
what loving you has done to me
and you’ll see

Don't Talk About Love

Written By: Phillip Coomer

I see your lips flapping in the wind
I hear your voice tumbling through my brain.

Don’t Talk about love, Just love me
Don’t talk about kissing, just kiss me
Don’t talk about rules, just take me away
Don’t Talk about love, Just love me
Don’t talk about kissing, just kiss me
Don’t talk about rules, just take me away

I heard you say it before
So there’s no need
Just close the door
And hold me
Its like I said before

Don’t Talk about love, Just love me
Don’t talk about kissing, just kiss me
Don’t talk about rules, just take me away
Don’t Talk about love, Just love me
Don’t talk about kissing, just kiss me
Don’t talk about rules, just take me away

So if ya think about writing me a letter
If ya think thin ya might think better
It’s what I said.

Don’t Talk about love, Just love me
Don’t talk about kissing, just kiss me
Don’t talk about rules, just take me away
Don’t Talk about love, Just love me
Don’t talk about kissing, just kiss me
Don’t talk about rules, just take me away

Walking around the world today

Written By: Phillip Coomer

Lost in a world where the sun’s never shining
You’re trying to find your way
Dreams get lost in their struggle to find you
You’re shouting – “I’m over here”

Walking around the world today
You met somebody new
Walking around the world today
You never thought it would be you
Walking around the world today
Walking around the world today
Walking around the world today –its just you

You’ve taken this trail to the top of the mountain
You found that you’re someone else
But looking back at the way that you’ve come
And you see that you just made yourself

Walking around the world today
You met somebody new
Walking around the world today
You never thought it would be you
Walking around the world today
Walking around the world today
Walking around the world today –its just you

Walking around the world today
You met somebody new
Walking around the world today
You never thought it would be you
Walking around the world today
Walking around the world today
Walking around the world today –its just you

Dream

Written By: Phillip Coomer

Last night we slept out under the stars
And I watched you sleeping
I thought of my mom, my dad and our kids
And the ones who are yet to be

And I thought to myself,
what a wonderful dream
And I wasn’t even sleeping

Yesterday we walked on a stony beach
Where the island meets the sea
It was like a painting without boundaries
Except it was you an me

And I thought to myself,
what a wonderful dream
And I wasn’t even sleeping

Tomorrow I’m on an outbound plane
To a place that I’ve never been.
I’ll take the time between you and I
And I’ll be home again.

And I’ll think to myself,
What a wonderful dream
And I’m not even sleeping

Alice And I

Written By: Phillip Coomer

Alice and I grew up together
Girl next door in a small Texas town
Things don’t change in the middle of nowhere
When Alice fell she didn’t make a sound

Alice I still see your face
Just like yesterday
And now I know its like they say
True love will never fade away

Alice and I went down to the river
Late last night when the moon was high
We crossed a bridge down on the river
Alice and I had nothing to hide

She lived life like it was a fable
Long red hair and crystal eyes
This morning she’s gone and on the kitchen table
On a paper bag was written her good bye

Alice I still see your face
Just like yesterday
And now I know its like they say
True love will never fade away

Now I’m on this plane to California
Searching for a girl from a small Texas town
I know everyone is searching for something
Alice is the best thing I’ve ever found

Well, Alice I still see your face
Just like yesterday
And now I know its like they say
True love will never fade away

the Angel Fixer

Written By: Phillip Coomer

The angel fixer – Phillip Coomer August 1, 2008
Capo4 G

Hey you lookin at the sun
Listen to the birds
watch the morning come

Hey you, with your hair jacked up
taking a sip
from your coffee cup

Hey you where did you come from
just an angel
from the morning sun

and If you fell from grace
just to save me another day
to take this bitter
lonely from my soul
I would take my time
to fix your wings, to heal you
to share this mortal pain
that we both know

Hey You, with the lonely eyes
If you knew
That my heart burns for you

He You with the broken smile
tears just come
And you just don’t know how

Hey you where did you come from
just an angel
from the morning sun

and If you fell from grace
just to save me another day
Take this bitter
lonely from my soul
I would take my time
to fix your wings, to heal you
to share this mortal pain
we both know

Hey you (higher)
