Do you know how many times I have slept with my guitar? I don't kiss and tell. It is my best friend, confidant and partner in life. If you want to hear songs about that relationship and others, listen closely. I hope they touch you the way they touch me.

Lyrics

Your House

Written By: RB Phillips

It has come to my attention
That your house fell down
Your house fell down
Your pretty little house

Back in the old days
When the sun shone
Into every nook and cranny
You had your peace and quiet
And your lannon stone

Then the threshold broke
and you were sent a sprawling
You stayed in and bawled
Your eyes out loud
‘til they were as red
as the roses in the front
of your pretty little house

It was your decision
When your house fell down
Down to the ground
Your broken little house

Before you say another word
You better check your pulse
You better start looking for your keys and locks
And box up all your shoes and socks
‘cuz your house is falling
not the sky
I’m no chicken little
But I know why
Your house is falling
Yeah your house is falling
It’s around town that your house fell down
It’s all around town that your house fell down
Everybody knows that your house
fell down

I Know What It's Like

Written By: RB Phillips

I know what it’s like to be your man
I know what it’s like to be your man
It takes a lot of love
Love that I don’t have
I know what it’s like to be your man

It’s been a day or two
Maybe three or four
I just can’t remember when
You walked right out the door
It takes a lot of love, girl
Can’t you see
It takes a lot of time and
It took a lot of me
Oh, you better listen up
‘cuz it’s hard to explain
I see sunshine
You see rain

Is it me or did you miss what I just said?
The man you see in front of you
Is only in your head
You don’t really understand
So let me try to explain
I see sunshine
You see rain

I know what it’s like to be your man
I know what it’s like to be your man
It takes a lot of time
Time that I don’t have
I know what it’s like to be your man

Ok, let’s talk about this other man you want
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Says you’re no debutante
He’s right around the corner
He’s coming into view
You’re never gonna see him, girl
‘cuz this man is you
‘cuz your man is you
‘cuz your man is
You still don’t understand
I don’t have to explain
I see sunshine and
No rain
