Backseat

Written By: Music by;The Pennies - Lyrics by Penny Marie

Backseat

I write these words to you in the backseat of your car.
I look in the rear view mirror and I don’t see you looking at me.
And I wonder how we drove this far with you right by my side.
I just sit here. Yeah I’m stuck in the backseat of your car.

All I wanted was to be in the front were you are.
And I am the greatest by far. By far, Listen to me

And I sit here and listen to your blues in the backseat of your car.
I look out the window it’s a sunny day. I see all these warning signs.
And I wonder Could we make it if we had God in our life.
Well I just sit here. Yeah I’m stuck in the backseat of your car.

All I wanted was to be in the front were you are.
And I am the greatest by far. By far,

Haunted

Written By: Music by;The Pennies - Lyrics by Penny Marie

Haunted

She wakes up in the morning
Endless thoughts and she's freezing
She wants to know how
She got here some how
Now she remains in chains

All she can say
He caused her this pain
Now she remains ok

She's haunted by you, Oh dear by you
She's haunted by you, Oh dear by you
She walks in a dark room for you, oh you

Her tears change color
It's snowing in October
She holds on tight to her babe in the night
Much sweeter dreams to come.

All she can say
He caused her this pain
Now she remains ok

She's haunted by you, Oh dear by you
She's haunted by you, Oh dear by you
She walks in a dark room for you, oh you

Shine Within Sadness

Written By: Music by;The Pennies - Lyrics by Penny Marie

Hold me now
I’m falling
There’s a piece inside of me dying
And, where do I go
To a place, I know
I call on heavens
To find my peace
I call on god for my strength

Save Me,
The truth lies, beneath
Save Me,
I can
Not breath
Save Me,
The truth lies, beneath
Save Me,
I can
Not breath.

Lift me up to the highest
I pray for love and kindness
And where do, I go
This I, don’t know
To a place where this is no hate,
I find good in my mistake

Save Me,
The truth lies, beneath
Save Me,
I can
Not breath
Save Me,
The truth lies, beneath
Save Me,
I can
Not breath.

Save Me
Save Me

Crashing Cars

Written By: Music by;The Pennies - Lyrics by Penny Marie

Song features Scottie Patton, guitarist for the band, Sugarland. Written

Lyrics:
Is there such a place, I call home. Where these flowers bring, me to my door. I turn slowly, out my window, all i see are, crashing cars. But i'm happy, i'm laughing, this world could be, so much more. But I'm happy.

Chorus:
If only i could change my life.
If only i could take my time.
I would be so much more, for you. I could be so much more, for me. If i could, change my life, if i could, take my time, i would be so much more, i could be, so much more, i could be so much more, for you.

As i walk outside, it's black and white. I look at myself. I'm covered in paint.
Now I'm running. Down the highway, all i see are 'Crashing Cars'. But i'm happy, i'm laughing, this world could be, so much more. But i'm happy.......
