The Calm Before the Storm

Written By: Tom Farley

The Calm Before the Storm - By Tom Farley

Two old friends sit talking 'bout the glory days galore
The days when they were far too young to care
Knowing there's a reason for her going off to war
And missing her the time that she's not there

Two young hearts beat softly along a sandy shore
Far beyond the fading of the light
Knowing there's a reason for him going off to war
And knowing that they only have one night

Chorus
He's been holding her just long enough to feel her trembling hand
As she thinks about the way their lives are torn
The sand within their hourglass falls on a distant shore
Just waiting out the calm before the storm

Chorus
He's been holding her just long enough to feel her broken heart
As he leaves her hoping she'll be safe and warm
The sand within their hourglass falls on a distant shore
Just waiting out the calm before the storm

You Don't Have To

Written By: Tom Farley

You Don't Have To - By Tom Farley

You don't have to take confession
Or let me bend your ear
You don't have to speak so gently
When you wipe away my tear
You've always been my dearest friend
In a life where friends were few
Your love you bring like all those things
That you don't have to do

You don't have to send a notion
To show me that you care
And you don't have to give emotion
When so much love is there
It's hard to find a heart so kind
In a beauty warm and true
Your love you bring like all those things
That you don't have to do

Mangy Dog Blues

Mangy Dog Blues - By Tom Farley

Hey, Louise....How are you honey?
Speak up I find it hard to hear
It's been a while since we've talked
And I'm makin' my position clear

I've been courtin' you for a month babe
And we haven't had a moment alone
Seems like everywhere we go
You gotta bring your doggy along

Break
We go walkin' on Sunday, Tuesday's the vet
A lick is all the lovin' I've been able to get
There are patches of grass growing crazy outside on my lawn

Chorus
I ain't askin' for the moon babe
I'd be happy just to be down home
So meet me at the corner
And leave your mangy dog at home

Break
I've been savin' my money, been out on the take
Tryin' to afford the fancy moves you make
But it don't mean a damn when I call on the phone and you're gone

Chorus
I ain't askin' for the moon babe
I'd be happy just to be down home
So meet me at the corner
And leave your mangy dog at home
