Lyrics

At Least

Written By: Simon Feret

AT LEAST
By Simon Feret

Verse 1: She was here today
She was in my face
She was calling out my name
In my place
She was dressed in black
From foot to hair
But now that she’s gone
It feels like there’s black everywhere

Verse 2: Man, I haven’t eaten
A thing today
‘Cause I was saving for something
To come my way
And I believe
It’s her I saw
‘Cause every time I close my eyes
I see her in my thoughts and in….

Chorus: My song’s for you
My dream come true
I hope you’re listening
And I hope you’ve caught my clues
I’ve got some hope
But I want some peace
So let me have a second time
At least

Bridge: She’s got me so high
At least she gets me a little bit happy

Verse 3: I’ll call you up
But I’ll get too scared
And I’ll hang up when I hear the first ring
In my ear
I’ll try to see you
Through a friend or something
I’ll try to tell you but I know that
I’ll say nothing and hope you guess…

Down On The Mira

Written By: Simon Feret

Down On The Mira
By Simon Feret

Verse 1

Joey’s got a mansion; I got a shack
He drinks champagne; I drink Jack
Sometimes I wish I could be just like Joe
Truth be told, we all know

Chorus:

Down on the Mira
Everybody knows your name
Down on the Mira
We’re all equal, we’re all the same

Verse 2

Danny’s got a speedboat; I got a raft
See him fly by, man he goes fast
Sometimes I wish I could be just like Dan
Truth be told, we still can

Chorus

Verse 3

Roy drives a Beamer; I ride a bike
He always looks good when he goes out at night
Sometimes I wish I could be just like Roy
Truth be told, let me tell ya boy,

Chorus

Verse 4

Joey, Dan and Roy, they’ve got it made
Livin’ the good life that we all crave
I wish I had the money, I wish I were King
But let me tell ya something, I wouldn’t change a thing

Marry Me Tomorrow

Written By: Simon Feret

MARRY ME TOMORROW
By Simon Feret

Verse 1: She calls me up when she’s feeling gay
Tries to make me come down like she does every day
When I get to her door she says, “No one’s at home”
Says, “I don’t want you here but don’t leave me alone”
She says, “I hate you, I love you, I’m sick
I’m queer, you’re here, let’s frolic
Marry me tomorrow”

Verse 2: She comes up to my door and she’s got nothing on
She stares blankly at me, I stare blankly at her
She eats nothing but fruit, I eat nothing but her
So I pull up her panties and she starts to shiver
And says, “It’s cold out, I’m naked, don’t touch me
I hate you, I love you, please hold me
Marry me tomorrow”

Verse 3: She plays sports in the winter and I hate the snow
Tried to take her away but she wouldn’t go
She says, “Everything’s here I need, don’t go away
‘Cause if you leave me I’ll have nothing”
She says, “Don’t leave me, stay with me, hello
Goodbye, just die, but don’t go
Marry me tomorrow”

Verse 4: She pisses me off when I’m already pissed
And she kisses me when I don’t wanna be kissed
But the sides of her cheeks taste like strawberry bliss
And her tongue makes me dream of longing to be her lisp
She says nothing
She just kisses me and says,
“Marry me tomorrow”

Pick Me Up

Written By: Simon Feret

PICK ME UP
By Simon Feret

Verse 1: Someone that I know’s got it in for me
Someone that I really wanna see
She’s got her wings spread
She’s got her bed done
So I can’t make her

Verse 2: She’s seeping just a little into each of my dreams
Her laugh’s as technicoloured as her eyes
She’s got a gun in one hand
Just call me Smith
Just call me Wesson
I think I’m overloaded

Chorus: Down you silver drain
I’m falling
Up your silver chain
I’m crawling
Give me a break
Why don’t you pick me up

Verse 3: I know my time is running out
I hear it clicking by
But the cocking of her gun
Is what is keeping me alive
She’s got her wings spread
She’s got her sheets in her trunk
She’s coming
I don’t wanna drive

Bridge: Down on every side of me
She’s getting nearer
Coming closer to shoot me down
She’s getting nearer

Another Fairy Tale Song

Written By: Simon Feret

ANOTHER FAIRY TALE SONG
By Simon Feret

Verse 1: A silver window sigh
Drop the drapes and let her see
The haunt held inside
The unresolvement tearing eyes

Chorus: I don’t wanna make you cry
I rather wish that I
Could fall in love with you
Tonight

Verse 2: Bleeding lips
I don’t mind being with you if you bleed
Like Mick Jagger said,
“We all need someone we can bleed on”

Bridge: Someday you find yourself
In a world with you and someone else
And that someone is too dreamlike

Verse 3: I guess I took for granted everything
I guess I needed for you to walk away
And I said, and I said I want you, I want you
And I said, and I said I’ll watch you, I’ll watch you

"Get It With You"

VERSE 1
I don't know just what to say
I don't know just what to do
I don't know just how to tell you
I wanna get it with you
Give me something, give me a reason
Give me something I can believe in
Give me all that I have been dreaming of
Wanna get it with you

VERSE 2
I wanna set your heart on fire
I wanna steal you winter tires
I wanna get you slipping around with me
Wanna get it with you
I wanna make your heart all wet
I wanna make you never forget
I wanna get all I can get and
I wanna get it with you

CHORUS
I wanna get it
I wanna get it
I wanna get it
I wanna get it with you!

VERSE 3
Tell me you wanna be my girl
Tell me you wanna rock my world
Tell me what I wanna hear
I wanna get it with you
Tell me that you wanna be mine
I tell you babe, I think you're fine
I think of you girl all the time
I wanna get it with you

CHORUS

CHORUS

Wait For You

Written By: Simon Feret

I'd sit outside your front door for an hour
I'd sit outside your front door for two
I'd sit outside dreaming all day just about all we could do
I'd wait, I'd wait, I'd wait, I'd wait for you

I'd sell my dreams, I'd sell my car, I'd sell everything that I own
I'd sell my house, I'd sell my clothes, I'd sell my home
I'd sell all of my time and have nothing to do
And I'd wait, I'd wait, I'd wait, I'd wait for you

You said you needed to think about us
You said you needed some time
Well listen to me, you do what you need to do
I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait for you

You told me you want to be alone now
You told me yesterday that it was the end
My future is open, I hope time changes you
'Cause I'm gonna wait, gonna wait, gonna wait, I'm gonna wait for you

I Wanna Take You Back

Written By: Simon Feret

I WANNA TAKE YOU BACK

I want you to take this, I hope that it makes this better
I hope that it gets to you
I wish you could hear this, I wish that we were together
I wish I could penetrate your tomb
I just wanna see you, I just wanna be with you
I wish I could hold you in my arms

I wanna take you back now, back now, but now it’s late
I wish that I could make it up to you somehow
And I’m just falling back down, back down without you babe
I wish that I could make it up to you right now
I wanna take you back

It’s not just a fable, it’s not just a fairy tale
It’s not just made up to make me sad
I can’t break this fever, I can’t get this feeling off my chest
It hurts so bad
You gotta believe me, you gotta forgive me
I wanna get back to what I had

In my side, in my heart, I wish I had let you start
In my hands, in my arms, I wanna find out who you are
In my line, in my eyes, I wanna see you take my time
But I said no and now I’m crying!

You'll Be There

Written By: Simon Feret

When I wake up
In the morning
And you're not there
I close my eyes
And fall asleep
And think of you
Of how things used to be
When you only cared for me
But now it's a different story
and You're Not There
With me

Tuesday morning
Sun is shining
But I don't care
Because I get up every morning
To see that
You're nowhere
You tell me you're coming home
I'm left waiting all alone
It's always the same old story
and You're Not There
With me

(Bridge)

But I can close my eyes
Pretend not to hear your lies
And make up one of my own
That You'll Be There
You'll Be There
You'll Be There
With me

Crazy ('Cuz Of You)

Written By: Simon Feret

Starlight sitting in the sky looking down at me
Everybody knows that you're haunting me
Everybody knows that you're haunting me
Midnight coming around and it's on to me
Everybody knows you're not gone from me
And everybody's worrying about me

PRECHORUS
If only you would hold my hand
If only you would be my girl again, but...

CHORUS
You, you, you
You got a problem being with me
You, you, you
You always got somewhere else to be
You, you, you
Don't you know you drive me crazy
You drive me crazy
I'm Crazy 'Cuz Of You

Sit back, I know just what you wanna say to me
You just wanna get the hell away from me
Yeah, my mind is turning into an enemy
Get down, I'm gonna explode
I've got nuclear thoughts on the go
I'm going crazy, crazy.....

PRECHORUS
CHORUS

Sometimes baby, don't you know I understand
Sometimes baby, don't you know I don't think I can
I'm giving you everything, baby, I've laid it on the line
Don't want to do it but I can't fight my mind

Set List

Simon has the ability to adapt seamlessly to any venue or event. His original style consists of incredibly dynamic original and covered rock material, however he can do a Hank William's impression like no one else, not to mention his ability to travel to the other end of the spectrum and play some Cape Breton fiddle.
