Lyrics

Dancer

Written By: Stacy Butler

Do you know where your baby goes
When the lights dim way down low
Do you know the devil's spotlight that she's in
She's as fresh as a baby's prayer,
But she's dancin' in the lion's lair
And she doesn't see the danger straight ahead
*
Oh, the night's a lonely partner in this ballet made for one
And the stars you see can never be your own
It's a fantasy you can't escape
For the price you pay is far too great
For the emptiness you'll wind up with in the end
*
Nineteen years old thought it sounded great
And she'd just do it 'til she made
Enough for the real life that she'd lead
Now twenty-five she's as cold as ice
Looks at men through a cynic's eyes
Not a one would she give her heart's desire
*
When the lights come up again
They'll go home to wives and real girlfriends
And you'll be the little secret that they keep
The pound of flesh that you give away
Will not be the last I'm sad to say
The devil takes as much as he can steal
*

Oh the night's a lonely partner in this ballet made for one
And the stars you see can never be your own
It's a fantasy you can't escape
For the price you pay is far too great
For the emptiness you'll wind up with in the end
*
(bridge)
Who she is they'll never see
'Cuz her body's in the way
And their lust has destroyed her heart and soul

Oh the night's a lonely partner in this ballet made for one
And the stars you see can never be your own.....

Coulda', Shoulda', Woulda'

Wish I'd seen myself five years ago
Standin here on 'without you' road
Fightin with those voices in my past
Well you hung your head and you fed me some lines
Your coulda, shoulda, wouldas
Well that's just fine, boy
Listen up, I've got a few of my own
*
Cuz,

My friends said I coulda done better
Momma said I shoulda known better
My head said I woulda been better off
Without you boy
Followed my heart right into your lies
Stayed too long in compromise
Wish I'd listened to those voices all along
Cuz I coulda, shoulda, woulda been gone
*
Here I am cleanin out your garage
Guns, golf clubs and my fishin rods
It was nice of me to let your friends think they were yours
You're tellin me you've got to move on
You'll be better off on your own
Well, this 411 would have been nice long ago,
When,

The boys said I coulda done better
Daddy said I shoulda known better
My head said I would have been better off
Without you boy
I followed my heart right into your lies
Stayed too long in compromise
Wish I'd listened to those voices all along
Cuz I coulda, shoulda, woulda been gone

(bridge)
Coulda moved to Austin
Shoulda known you'd go
I woulda been the girl that told you to hit the road

when,
*
My friends said I coulda done better
Mamma said I shoulda known better
My head said I woulda been better off without you boy
Followed my heart right into your lies
Stayed too long in compromise
Wish I'd listened to those voices all along
Cuz I coulda, shoulda, woulda been gone

*

Were You There(Tribute to WWII Veterans)

Written By: Stacy Butler

An American flag is coverin' him now
He doesn't have to worry anymore about taxes, or medicare
He was my Grandpa and my dear friend
From when I was young my hero to the end
For God and country I'd heard him say
He told me about the 'good ole days' and the war he saw
I sat at his feet night after night
And asked all the questions I was so wide-eyed
God, help me remember all the things he said
We musn't forget that our future depends on what they did
*
Were you there with the rockets' red glare
Were you on that beach where I saw all those boys die in that movie
Did you fire a gun or fly a plane
Trudge through the mud in the pouring rain
What were those boys names who fought beside you
Tell me were you,
Were you there
*
In his trunk at home we found a book
His life in pictures the way he looked when he was young
They all took up the flag and bore the fight
Called to task for what was right and true for us all
Full of promise and pride and "Semper Fi"
They went without question, they were so wide-eyed
God help me remember all the things he said
We musn't forget that our future depends on what they did
*
They were there with the rockets' red glare
They were on that beach where I saw all those boys die in that movie
Yes, they fired their guns they flew the planes
Trudged through the mud in the pouring rain
Lost their friends so we could all live free here
Oh, thank God
They were there

(Taps)

Were you there with the rockets' red glare
Were you on that beach where I saw all those boys die in that movie
Did you fire a gun or fly a plane
Trudge through the mud in the pouring rain
What were those boys names who died beside you
Tell me were you,
Were you there...
