Lyrics

Gotta Love A Girl Like That

Written By: Robert Daniels

GOTTA LOVE A GIRL LIKE THAT
© Robert Daniels – Robert Randall

My baby called me early, Said let’s hit the lake
You’ve been working hard, Time to take a break
Put your flip flops on, Put some beer on ice
You know she didn’t have to ask me twice
Cause she likes to party and she’s good to look at
You gotta love a girl like that.

CHORUS:
We go boatin’ and floatin’ on a party barge
Drinking cold Coronas and livin’ large
She’s got a teeny wet bikini and a cowboy hat
You gotta love a girl like that.

VERSE 2:

She opened up the cooler, put the anchor down
Called up all our friends, told ‘em to come around
She threw them all a line that they could tie onto
They had fast boats, jet skis and one canoe.
We popped a few tops and there we sat.
You gotta love girls like that.

REPEAT CHORUS:

BRIDGE:

We look like a scene out of Water World
Me, my friends and my special girl
Left our cares at the dock and we’re having fun
On a big raft under the sun

REPEAT CHORUS:

One Night Stand Gone Wrong

Written By: Robert Daniels

ONE NIGHT STAND GONE WRONG
© Robert Daniels

You hit the door; I started shakin'
Custom ordered for troublemakin'.
A red hot glance; I had no doubt
I figured one great night, then out.
Sparks flew in the dark, but you should've known
Breaking dawn means it's time to go home.
But so may suns have risen and set
And baby, you haven’t gone yet.

Chorus:
You took my time; threw away my money.
All I got was a hard time, honey
I never thought you'd be around this long.
You're a one night stand gone wrong.
(guitar repeats last line of chorus)

You thought that I'd be your backstage pass
I thought that you had a really nice....
Ask me how I'm feelin', I'm feelin' strong
You're going back where you belong
The next time I see you will be too soon
You might cross my mind when I'm singing this tune
or when I think back to one great night
That just didn't turn out right.

(Repeat Chorus)
(guitar repeats last line of chorus)

Bridge:
I'll get you a box
for all of your things
watch the door, baby
It's startin to swing
Take a bus, call a cab
I don't care which
Baby, that's life
and life is a ***.

(Repeat Chorus)
(guitar repeats last line of chorus)
(Vocalist repeats last line of chorus)

Time Down A Funnel

Written By: Robert Daniels

TIME DOWN A FUNNEL
© Robert Daniels

VERSE 1

Deep inside still a Navy man
With a hula girl tat from a tropical land
Times have been good
But time’s a thief
Like a ship slowly sinking
it tests my belief.
The memories of his days are fading away

CHORUS:
They stopped making men like him.
Shut that factory down.
Even now as lights grow dim
No finer can be found
The candle burns lower with each passing day
like time down a funnel slipping away

VERSE 2:

He lived a great life; two kids and a wife
Always did good whenever he could
Stayed close with his friends as they grew into men
Now he needs them more
Than ever before
Life’s not been fair can’t tell if he’s there.

REPEAT CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
Stop the clock
Where’s the sense where’s the reason
Stop the clock
Turn back the season
Stop the clock Stop the clock
push back the time

REPEAT CHORUS:

Nothing To Say

Written By: Robert Daniels

NOTHING TO SAY
© Robert Daniels

VERSE 1
So many words are just flying by like arrows.
It’s time the talking is through
Good time is passing. We stand instead of moving.
This moment’s way overdue.
You can turn and walk away.
I’ve heard this all before.
I’m starting things all fresh today.
I don’t want this anymore.

CHORUS:

I’ve got nothing to say to you, except
We’re done forever. Longer than never.
I’ve got nothing. No words to choose
Except that we are through. I’ve got nothing to say to you.

VERSE 2:

This moment’s over. Here once but gone forever
An hour glass with no sand
My life’s beginning. Just like a phoenix rising
No one can tell me I can’t.
My wings are pointed to the sky
My eyes are open wide
I think it’s time I start to fly.
Leave the past far behind

REPEAT CHORUS:

BRIDGE:

And if you pass me on a city street;
Just another stranger walking by.
Don’t think what could’ve been
If you’d only tried.

I'm Here (Because of You)

Written By: Robert Daniels

I’M HERE (BECAUSE OF YOU)
© Robert Daniels

Verse 1.
You know I’ve come so far
Been reaching for a star.
It’s been a blur
and hard to put in words.
It’s like a fantasy
That you’d hold on to me
I’ve crashed I’ve burned
Oh oh the lessons learned.
Somehow I found my way
I’m here and this is our day.

Chorus:
I’m here – where I’m supposed to be.
Here - with you up close to me
Here with all the love you give to me
I’m here – right here in front of you.
Here- oh can you feel it too.
Here – because of you.

Verse 2.
This moment’s yours and mine
To cherish for all time
A mountains peak
With many more to climb.
My eyes look to the sky
Can’t help but wonder why
You’ve given me
A chance at destiny.
I won’t forget this day.
I’m here and here to stay.

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:
You gave me motivation
You’re my inspiration
Right down to my soul
You bring out the best in me
You make me whole

Repeat Chorus:
