Pigeon and the Statue

He was a little over weight he had freckles on his face
That’s the kiss of death when you’re in the 7th grade
He was the brunt of all their jokes he laughed along till he walked home
That’s when the tear came running down his face
We all knew that little kid, some of us were even him

(chorus)
So when you get home tonight take a good look at yourself

To get to where you are today did you step on someone else

Cause what they say about what goes around comes around is true

One day you’re the pigeon but the next day you could be the statue

She turned 40 last September most days she cant remember
The dreams that once burned in her heart
It’s hard to keep those dreams alive when each days a struggle to survive
And all you own fits in a shopping cart
She’s all alone in this big old world, but she’s still somebody’s little girl

I think it’s time that you and me took a look around to see
All those people reaching out
I think we’ll find it don’t take much to improve everything we touch
And that’s what it’s really all about
The smallest gift is all it takes, you wont believe a difference that it makes

This is the Life

Written By: Jim and John Mears

This is the Life


I’ll never be a movie star; I’ll never be a millionaire
I’ll never run for politics, tell you the truth I don’t care
Some men need fortune and fame, they survive off of power and greed
Me I’m a simple man, I’ve got everything I need

(Chorus)

I’ve got a house on an acre of land
An old truck, a new minivan
I’ve got a good job, great kids, and you for a wife
Oh this is the life

I love coaching the little league team, taking the kids fishing down by the creek
Those Sunday evenings on the front porch swing, you and I planning out our week
Some folks call it the simple life, but I know just how much it’s worth
The good lord well he’s blessed me, made me the richest man on earth

(Chorus)

Bridge

Take a look around, I’ve got everything
I wouldn’t trade this life for anything

I just want to be a kid again

I Just Want to Be A Kid Again

Being all grown up ain’t all, it’s cracked up to be
Everyday is full of, stress and anxiety
I’m just another rat caught up in the race
Wish I could go back to a simpler time and place

(Chorus)

I just want to be a kid again, throw my cares and worries to the wind
Head down to that fishing hole, a cup of worms and my zebco
Maybe jump in for a swim
Scooping grounders up with my old glove, fill a mason jar with lighting bugs
Collecting rocks and baseball cards, camping out in my backyard
With all of my old friends, I just want to be a kid again

Car notes and mortgages They can take their toll
I’d trade it all right now, just to be 10 years old
When everyday was G.I Joe’s , marbles and sling shot
Twinkies and PBJ’s in a superman lunch box

(Bridge)
When I was younger I was always in
Such a hurry to be older
But now the years have passed and I just cant believe
How quickly it was over
I just want to be a kid again

Another Her

Written By: Jim Mears and John Mears

Another Her

Same old routine up before the sun
Long lonely days here comes another one
I search to find the strength to make it through the day
But when you lost the only one you loved it’s hard to find your way
There’s an empty place inside of me that only she can fill
They say that time will ease the pain but I know it never will

( Chorus)
There’s never gonna be another her, no one can take her place
Every time I turn around I see her face
These days life is so uncertain but one thing I know for sure
There’s never gonna be another

All of my friends they all think its time
To get on with my life and get her off my mind
But they don’t realize just what it was we had
Cause if they did they’d understand why it still hurts this bad
Well there’s some things you can lose there gone without a trace
But something that’s a part of you ,you never can replace

Somebody's Little Girl

Written By: Jim and John Mears

Somebody’s Little Girl

Her sign says will work for food,
Right about now what I usually do is look the other way, but not today
When I looked into her eyes my heart begins to sink
Cause I saw my daughters face and I couldn’t help but think

She’s somebody’s little girl with her Sunday dress and her hair in curls
Then she turned and looked at me for a moment I don’t see
Someone who’s been to the darkest corners of this world
All I see is somebody’s little girl

She couldn’t be more then 25
I swear she hasn’t even been alive long enough for life to be this tough
I hand her some money wishing there was more that I could do
She says god bless you sir and it broke my heart in two

I asked her if she’d be OK
She said it’s just another day
Then she pointed up and said he looks out for me
I knew right then that she’d always be

I Believe in Angels

Written By: John and Jim Mears

I Believe in Angels

This mouth of mine’s been getting me in trouble Almost from the moment I could talk
Some say that I’ve been running with the devil damn nears from the time that I could walk
Along the way a lot of real good people tried to show me the errors of my way
All those little things that I didn’t want to hear I heard them loud and clear today

I believe in Angels I’ve seen the living proof
I don’t need to see a halo to know that it’s the truth
I knew it from the moment I saw that newborn baby
I believe in Angels, I believe in Angels heaven sent the smallest one to save me

Seems like I spent half a lifetime not knowing right from wrong
Almost like I didn’t know the difference turns out I knew it all along
It was nothing short of a miracle that made me realize
And everything looks different now looking through a fathers eyes

That's what I hate about love

Written By: Jim and John Mears

What I Hate About Love

Same old pain same old story, another pretty boy saying he’s sorry
How many times can one girl get burned
At first it always feels like magic
But then it always ends up tragic
You think by now that I would have learned

That
Promises aren’t meant to keep
Tears are for crying myself to sleep
Forever is just a word that boys make up
That’s what I hate about love
Love is just a grand illusion
That always leads to one conclusion
That my hearts gonna break it always does
That’s what I hate about love

Love is just a losers game it has my number it knows my name
I tell myself this time it’s gonna work
But I’m heading for another fall
I cant see the writing on the bedroom wall
Until I’m writing him off as just another jerk

Bridge
I’ve heard it all before but like a fool I just keep coming back for more.

Everybody in Heaven Wears White

Written By: Jim and John Mears

Everybody in Heaven Wears White

Eddie was a guitar picker, he loved those smokey bars
That kind of life is no good for the ticker Eddie pushed his a little to hard
Thanks to the doctors and a thousand volts brought Eddie back from the dead
When we asked him what he remembered this is what Eddie said

Chorus

Everybody in heavens wears white oh you ought to see it shine
The place was crawling with honky tonk angels all singing like Patsy Cline
I’m trying hard to remember every detail you know it all happened in a flash
Everybody in heaven wears white, everybody but Johnny Cash

Now Eddie said
Old Hank was sitting on a bar stool he was singing a lonesome song
While Waylon laughed and said he wished Willie would hurry up along
They had their very own Grand Ole Opry and Roy Acuff was the host
Those steel guitars never sounded sweeter but the thing that impressed him most

Bridge
Now don’t you dare trying telling Eddie that he was dreaming about that place
Because he knows just what he saw and he’ll tell you right to your face
