A Little Change

Written By: Vincent Bonvissuto

He watches the cold, gray sky
In the side-view mirror
She stares at the snow comin’ down
Outside her window

There’s no good songs on the radio
They turned it off 20 miles ago and there’s
Nothin’ but silence in the air

There’s so much she wants to say
But he wouldn’t understand anyway
So she shuts her eyes and says a quiet prayer

CHORUS 1
Just a little change turns snow to rain
Just a little rain makes the roses grow
One little rose is all I need
To show he loves me

Just a little unexpected kiss
Just a little tenderness to pull me through
Lord I’m askin’ you
For a little change

He heads for the truck stop
Where the neon lights are blinkin’
He walks inside to pay for the gas
And wonders what she’s thinkin’

There’s an old song on the radio
They used to dance to years ago
Back when she was everything to him

The cashier gives him a couple of dimes
He stares at the coins with tears in his eyes
And says I’ve got to win her love again

CHORUS 2
With a little change I could make a call
With one little call I could make some plans
Rent the cabin where we
Used to spend all our weekends

Pour a little champagne in her glass
Take her by the hand and let her know she’s mine
I think it’s time
For a little change

BRIDGE
Two taillights fade in the night as they hit the road again
Two lovers rediscover a love that’ll never end

CHORUS 3
Just a little change turns snow to rain
Just a little rain makes the roses grow
One little rose is all she needs
To show he loves her

Just a little unexpected kiss
Just a little tenderness to pull her through
She’s overdue for a little change, just a little change

Wildfire Side Of Me

Written By: Vincent Bonvissuto, Ben McKay

I’m an honest man
When I shake your hand
It’s understood that deal is done

Now you’re tellin’ me
I ‘aint got what you need
You’re gonna cut me out, take your money and run

Well mister I’m gonna hold you to your word
You’re gonna stick it out for better or worse

CHORUS 1
Inside ev’ry man there’s a line in the sand that you don’t cross
And I’m gonna fight for what is right no matter what the cost
You’re gettin’ close to the blazin’, ragin’, wildfire side of me
And that’s a side you don’t ever want to see

I’m a quiet man
But when I take a stand
I ‘aint afraid to speak my piece

Like a redwood tree
There’s no movin’ me
When it comes to the things I believe

So go ahead and speak your truth
Just don’t forget who you’re lyin’ to

CHORUS 2
Inside ev’ry man there’s a line in the sand that you don’t cross
And I’m gonna fight for what is right no matter what the cost
You’re too close to the blazin’, ragin’, wildfire side of me
And that’s a side you don’t ever want to see

CHORUS 3
Inside ev’ry man there’s a line in the sand that you don’t cross
And I’m gonna fight for what is right no matter what the cost
You’re too close to the blazin’, ragin’, wildfire side of me
And that’s the man you never thought I’d be

Two Rooms (Our Place)

Written By: Vincent Bonvissuto, Marci Mitchell

Tearin’ down these old plaster walls
Pullin’ up the floorboards in the hall
There ain’t no lock in the back door anymore just a hole

My eyes are bloodshot and my bones ache
My sore back’s had ‘bout all it can take
Workin’ ten straight hours – I oughta take a break but I won’t

My little girl needs a home
Some place she can call her own

CHORUS 1
Two rooms, one bath
Just enough for a little girl to dream and love and laugh
Front porch, tire swing
It ain’t much, but to her it’s everything
I love to see that smile on her face
When we talk about our place (our place), our place

She was born in a humble home
We moved out when she was three months old
Her daddy thought it was time to hit the road without us

Spent her third birthday in a Motel 6
She said, “Momma, where are all the other kids?”
I prayed to God she wouldn’t have to live like this she’s had enough

Found a run-down place with a for-sale sign
It’s been through hell, but so have I

CHORUS 2
Two rooms, one bath
Just enough for a little girl to dream and love and laugh
Front porch, tire swing
It ain’t much, but to her it’s everything
I love to see that smile on her face
When we walk around our place (our place), our place

BRIDGE
She out back in the garden
Diggin’ in the dirt and pullin’ up the weeds
She wants to grow something beautiful
A little sunshine, a little love is all she needs

CHORUS 3
Two rooms, one bath
Just enough for a little girl to dream and love and laugh
Front porch, tire swing
It ain’t much, but to her it’s everything
Can’t wait to see that smile on her face
When we settle down in our place (our place), our place
Our place (our place), our place (our place)

In Reverse

Written By: Vincent Bonvissuto

Watch me unfry this egg and
Uncook the bacon
Unbrew this pot of coffee I’m makin’

Unread the paper and
Unrise the sun
It’s amazin’ what I can do
When I close my eyes and think of you

CHORUS 1
I’m stuck in reverse
It began the night you left me and
Ev’ry day it just gets worse
In my mind I go back in time
To find where we went wrong
Like a movie running backwards all day long
I’m stuck in reverse

Think I’ll walk through the park
Retrace my steps
Find the bench where we first met

Sit where I sat when you
Stole my heart and soul
I ain’t never gettin’ over you
I’ve got a permanent case of déjà, déjà, déjà vu

CHORUS 2
I’m stuck in reverse
It began the night you left me and
Ev’ry day it just gets worse
In my mind I go back in time
To undo what I’ve done
Like Pluto spinnin’ backwards ‘round the sun
I’m stuck in reverse

BRIDGE
Your sweet voice
Is all I need to hear
Tell me you miss me, baby
So I can shift gears ‘cause

CHORUS 3
I’m stuck in reverse
It began the night you left me and
Ev’ry day it just gets worse
In my mind I go back in time
And imagine you’ve come back
Like a Porsche racing backwards on a track
I’m stuck in reverse, stuck in reverse, stuck in reverse
