Lyrics

Your Story

Written By: Eric Cottrell

Well I never felt so far so good
It never goes away, the way I think it should
But it’s so alright when you come around
You can have the title — never won a round

I wish you’d pick me up and tell me your story
Instead I’m walking ’round feelin’ so sorry

Well, I never felt so low’s I feel now
But you could pick me up since you knew how
And it all be up in a little while
When i hear your voice sing a little smile

I wish you’d hit me up and tell me your story
You never fight a little fight for glory
Well I never felt so low’s I feel now

When I think of things, you know, I might get done
You could tag along you know it might be fun
I could live through a month of monday mornings
Just to be just a bit in your story

Well I never felt so high’s I feel now
You just made me up just like you knew how
So happy that it’s just a matter of time now
You never get it from nobody for free now
Still I never felt so high’s I feel now

So glad to see you at the top of your form now
You never take it from nobody, nope, no how
Well I never felt so high’s I feel now

Presence

Written By: Eric Cottrell

That I’ve been hurt there’s nothin’ new to that I know
But I know why
Yeah I know

Love cast a shadow ’cross my soul I never realized in light

For thirteen years I’ve cried and cried myself so dry
But I got by

I felt an emptiness, the likes I’d never known
But I got by
I’ll tell you why

Well I can see you in my mind
When I close my eyes I know that you are standing near to me
Well, I can feel you all the time
All the time

The day you left this world I promised to survive
But did I lie?
Lord, did I lie?

But the darkest days of doubt will surely pass me by
But in good time
But sometimes

I can see you in my mind
When I close my eyes I know that you are standing near to me
Well, I can feel you all the time
There are words I put together but they never can compare
With the sublime

August's Broken Heart

Written By: Eric Cottrell

Did you ever find the sunshine too bright?
Take a promise home and kiss it goodnight?
Did you ever lose a dream you called your own?

There’s a comfort telling lies to yourself
Just as long as you will never find yourself out
In the silence you can hear the answer clear

When living green shall pass and shadows cast long
You’ll hear August’s broken heart in this song
When falling leaves shall line the pathway to your home
Change forever

And it’s all you...

When sum of parts don’t ever make you feel whole
And knowing you is something that you will never ever know
Take a single step and push away your fear
