Lyrics

back to being you

Written By: Scott Silipigni

say goodbye to your winter funk
I can see green on the leaves from the trunk
gently I drift to the place
can feel the sun on my face

afraid to say that the cold took it's toll
might take a while to thaw the heart
cause this metaphor, can knock you to the floor
working together can tear you apart

chorus
so shed the coat
thats hardened the soul
just three months can easily undo
all the work, that you put in
just when you started to feel good again
why oh why did it have to come
hurt so much can't help but feel numb
your solitude so quickly ensued
it's time to get back to being you

chorus
so shed the coat
thats hardened the soul
just three months can easily undo
all the work, that you put in
just when you started to feel good again

I knew all along you were down but not out
with nothing in the tank you gave it one more round
fought for yourself, despite the cards you were dealt
c'mon lets take the work by storm

chorus
so shed the coat
thats hardened the soul
just three months can easily undo
all the work, that you put in
just when you started to feel good again
I know your gonna start to feel good again

back to being you

masquerade

Written By: Scott Siliipigni

your a princess, a theif
a wind blowing leaf
fine with wherever you go
your here, your there
make due anywhere
regardless whether the faces change

chorus
but I thiink your afraid
this is some masquerade
for what is hidden deep down in the depths of you
you'll get along, because your will is so strong
is it really what you longed for

your peaceful, your a fighter
travel much lighter
when burden doesn't way down your soull
your witty, your smart
aim like a dart
when it comes to getting your way

chorus
yeah I thiink your afraid
this is some masquerade
for what is hidden deep down in the depths of you
you'll get along, because your will is so strong
is it really what you longed for

your a princess, a thief
a wind blowing leaf
fine with wherever you go
your here, your there
make due anywhere
regardless whether the faces change

chorus
but I think, your afraid
this is some masquerade
for what is hidden
deep down in the depths of you
you'll get along
because your will is so strong
is it really what you longed for

your peaceful, your a fighter
you travel much lighter
when burden doesn't way down your soul
your witty, your smart
aim like a dart
when it comes to getting your way

chorus

this is some masquerade
for what is hidden
deep down in the depths of you
you'll get along
because your will is so strong
is it really what you longed for

love letter

Written By: Scott Siliipigni

I try not to say things that I don't mean
like talking down to others, or stomping on a dream
who am I to pick, the path that you choose
if your free, and alive
I find it hard to loose

chorus
this is my love letter
to a world that's done me right, instead of wrong
and for the ones that are hurting
do your best to stay strong
it's not long until things turn around

have a friend in the shadows
trying to find the light
although he gives it all
he just can't get it right

his heart is true one of the purest I've seen
he's got hope, and dreams

chorus
this is my love letter
to a world that's done me right, instead of wrong
and for the ones that are hurting
do your best to stay strong
it's not long until things turn around

this doesn't mean that times haven't been tough
I've had my share of suffering, but it aint enough

to stop me looking for a brand new day, and the road that lies ahead
got a lot of living left inside of me
aint waiting till I'm dead

chorus
this is my love letter
to a world that's done me right, instead of wrong
and for the ones that are hurting do your best
do your best to stay strong
it's not long until things turn around

this is my love letter
this is my love letter
this is my love letter
my my my

San Francisco

San Francisco
Words and music by S. Silpigni
Performed by the Scott Silipigni Band

Tell me how he left your heart, by the San Francisco bay in the dark
You were miles away from home, can only hope that you weren’t roaming alone
Wonder did you have any doubts, like the bottom of the ninth with two outs
Do you swing for the lights or admit you lost your fight and go

Chorus
I know the days are gonna get brighter
Just a chapter in your life
Know you’ve got the heart
To make the days ahead right, yeah make the days ahead right

It must be tough to loose yourself, and disappear into your shell
To the hand of another and discover that you compromised

Chorus

I wonder did you have any doubts, like the bottom of the ninth with two outs
Do you swing for the lights or admit you lost your fight and go

Chorus

Tell me how he left your heart, by the San Francisco bay in the dark
You were miles away from home, can only hope that you weren’t roaming alone
