Track Name: If You Get Lonely
If You Get Lonely
© 2015 David L. Wermers

Chorus
If you get lonely baby don’t call
I gotta get over you after all
And it won’t do us any good to ignore the fact
That if you get lonely, I might believe
You really didn’t want me to leave
And I might convince myself you want me back

Verse 1
We’re no good together and it’s not that hard to see
That your heart belongs to someone and that someone isn’t me
Cause I watched that sparkle in your eye turn to a tear
And I’m getting used to you not being here. So (Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
I have to set your memory free
Cause you’re not in love with me
And everything will get better eventually, So

Repeat Chorus

Yea, I might convince myself you want me back

So, if you get lonely baby don’t call
Track Name: Making Conversation
Making Conversation
© 2015 David L. Wermers
Verse 1
He talks about the weather and how the crops are growing
Got some rain but could use a little more
She’s got a bag of feathers and to Mitchell she’ll be going; to get credit at the fabric store
Mentions that the price of cattle might be going down
So, maybe we should load them up and head them into town

Chorus
Making conversation down at the café; trying to solve the world’s problems if only for a day
Gotta go but Betty pour one more anyway; making conversation down at the café

Verse 2
Ain’t it funny how the price of hay always seems to drop?
As soon as you decide to sell
And the combine will be done today; got a call from the welding shop
This year I hope everything goes well
The calves are coming early so they should beat the snow
Hope to have a healthy herd but you never know. (Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
The same old faces I would see when I was growing up
Trying to figure out this life over a coffee cup
And like every other little town they’re all the same
Just different faces and a different name. They were (Repeat Chorus)

Gotta go but Betty pour one more and I’ll stay
Making conversation down at the café, yea, making conversation down at the café
Track Name: I Got You
I Got You
© 2015 David L. Wermers

Verse 1
There’s some things that we aint got, like betting on chicken to hit a spot
I may not have a lot, but honey, I got you
Mexican food’s not genuine but I got a bottle of strawberry wine
And you know I think that’s fine cause, Honey I got you

Chorus
I may not have a mansion on the hill
And I know that you don’t care that I probably never will
And I’ve got all in need as long as you’re here with me
I’m in love and I’ll always be cause, Honey I got you

Verse 2
We don’t have chick Fil A, but what we’ve got is A-ok
It doesn’t matter anyway, cause, Honey I got you. (Repeat Chorus)

Repeat Chorus

There’s some things that we aint got like picking a chicken to hit a spot
Am I sad, no I’m not, cause, Honey I got you, Honey I got you, yea, Honey I got you
Track Name: Gonna Be Sorry
Gonna Be Sorry
© 2011 David L. Wermers

Verse
You're gonna leave me in the morning that's what you say
You say you're gonna take yourself away, from me
A lot of words spoken a lot of time spent
To convince me everything you said you meant, and why cant I see
How good I got it and how good it could be
All I can say is you're gonna be sorry.

Chorus
You're gonna be sorry that you said goodbye
One day you'll be sitting there and start to cry
And that's when you will finally see
And you'll be sorry that you said goodbye to me

Verse
Then you said you're gonna wish you had another chance with me
You're gonna realize as soon as you see, me disappear
So you better try real hard to change my mind
Or one night you're gonna wake up and you'll find
Yourself wishing I was here
Its your choice if you want to stop me
But if you don't, you're gonna be sorry. (Repeat Chorus)

Chorus
You're gonna be sorry that you said goodbye, one day (stop) you'll be sitting there and start to cry (resume) And that's when you will finally see
And you'll be sorry that you said goodbye to me
Track Name: Out There
Out There
© 2011 David Wermers
Verse
He says I think I really messed up this time
I think its over and I can’t call her mine
I don’t think she’s coming back
He says I haven't seen her in awhile
I didn't think I would but I miss that pretty smile
Now I'm just trying to get on track

Chorus
I know out there lies hope for me
I know that I won’t spend my life in misery
I know that life aint always fair
I know that there is someone for me out there

Verse
He says I think I’ll sit here for awhile
Think about what went wrong and then maybe I’ll
Find some meaning to this pain

I believe out there is someone for me
I know that someday I will see
Some one to love again. (Repeat Chorus)

Verse
He says I think I really messed up this time
Cause I’ve seen her out with some other guy
And she looked kind of happy
Track Name: What She Didn't Say
What She Didn’t Say
© 2006 David Wermers

Verse
The silence was deafening when I got home last night
We didn’t call each other names or fight
She just turned the TV off then turned the other way
And without a word I think I heard what she didn’t say
Chorus
She didn’t say that it was over but I think I kind of knew
From the way she didn’t say good night and the things she didn’t do
I knew things were different now, not like the other day
And without a word I think I heard what she didn’t say

Verse
It may take some time, this time, to make it up to her
I better change or I’ll lose her for sure
I just hope it’s not too late to try another day
Cause without a word I think I heard what she didn’t say.

(Repeat Chours)

Yes, without a word I think I heard what she didn’t say
Track Name: In The Name of Love
In The Name of Love
© 2008 David L. Wermers

Verse
I know that you’ve been hurt and don’t think you’ll survive
But I can’t go and beat him up because he’s only five
And I’m sure he didn’t mean to hurt you like he did
Who knows just what he thinks, like you he’s just a kid

Chorus
Who can say why we do the things we do
So many are done in the name of love
Who can say why we do the things we do
When so many are done in the name of love

Verse
What was it that he did to make you want to cry?
Did he run around on you, did he cheat or lie?
You say that you don’t know but there’s something going on
Why don’t you talk to him, you know you could be wrong.
(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
Don’t let yourself see something that isn’t there
And don’t jump to conclusions when you think he doesn’t care
Don’t blame it on the moon or on the stars above
Let’s just blame it on love (repeat Chorus)

Yea, so many are done in the name of love.
Track Name: Begin Again With You
Begin Again With You
© 2015 David L. Wermers
Verse 1
I’m doing my best honey, sometimes there’s more month than money
And lately the bacon’s been a little lean
But through each day we keep on a fighting and the weeks pass by like lightening
And we end up at the same old scene

Pre-Chorus
So, let’s break out of this rut we’re in
Maybe baby let’s stop talking and decide where we begin

Chorus
Let’s go to a movie, maybe take in a play
That’s something we both like to do
Let’s stop at the antique shop now what do you say
We could buy something old that’s new
Yea, I want to stop talking and begin again with you

Verse 2
Once again it’s a Friday night, we’re both tired but it’s alright
It’s been a long week and we both need a little rest.
But before Friday turns to Monday morning
Let’s do something without warning
We both know that would be best. So (Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
Maybe visit some old friends that we haven’t seen in some time
If we did something fun, it wouldn’t be a crime. So (Repeat Chorus)

There’s so many things that we can do
So, I want to stop talking and begin again with you
Track Name: Do You Hear Yourself
Do You Hear Yourself
© 2011 David L. Wermers

Chorus
Do you hear yourself, can you hear what you’ve been saying
It’s not making any sense at all
You say you’re leaving me and going off with someone else
You didn’t want to but you had to fall
You say you know what you’re doing, baby
But I just don’t think that you do
So down the road when he does what you’re doing to me
Who’s gonna be there for you

Verse 1
It’ll take a few steps to help the hurt stop hurting
A few more and I’ll forget about you for awhile
And soon enough I won’t think about you anymore
And before too long I will learn to smile. So (Repeat Chorus)

Verse 2
I’m gonna stop pretending that you ever cared for me
Its time to put all the feelings I had away
And in time the fog will clear and I will finally see
Up ahead there’s a better day. (Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3
I don’t think you can read the writing on the wall
And girl you’re acting like a fool
I can see, cause it happened to me, girl, you’re gonna take a fall
It’s just a matter of time before it happens to you. So (Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: It Breaks My Heart
It Breaks My Heart
© 2006 David Wermers

Verse
It breaks my heart to hear how someone that you love just broke your heart in two
And it breaks my heart to see you in such pain and there is nothing I can do
So I’ll just go and you will never know the real reason why I get so mad
It’s just a face that I put on so you won’t see me sad. Cause

Chorus
It breaks my heart every time your heart gets broken
It breaks my heart every time I see you cry
It breaks my heart with all these words left unspoken
It breaks my heart so much that I could die

Verse
It breaks my heart to hear you talk about him like he’s ever gonna change
And it breaks my heart to see you running back to him don’t you know it’ll be the same
And you’ll be back again, and tell me everything that I’ve already heard
And I will be a real good friend, I’ll listen and never say a word. And (Repeat Chorus Twice)

It breaks my heart so much that I could die
Track Name: Walk In My Shoes
Walk In My Shoes
© 2013 David L. Wermers

Verse 1
I joined congress a few years back, I like my job I’m right on track
I vote for stuff to help all of you
But I love my PAC, legal way to get money
And I don’t abuse it like some people do

I only take what I need I don’t give in to greed
I’m trying to watch what I spend like you.
So when I bought my 3rd Humvee I got it cheap but not quite free
And it’s my mobile office for my crew.

Chorus
You don’t know just how I feel until you walk in my shoes
It’s not easy to do what I do, so don’t believe what you see on the news
It’s not easy to do what I do, so don’t believe what you hear on the news

Verse 2
My daughter’s at the university I love dual functionality
And I’ll announce that I’ll run one more time.
She will walk and we will congratulate, we’ll have a drink and celebrate.
And I won’t have to pay a single dime. (Repeat Chours)

Bridge
Keep on sending (in) your donation, so I can take a grand vacation
We will go to some place remote and pay to rent the entire boat
And I will take the whole family and get it paid from my PAC
Some will say that’s not fair(Slows and stops at end of the line)
That I can go anywhere. Well … (Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Hold Steady (Show Your American Pride)
Hold Steady
(Show Your American Pride)
© 2012 David L. Wermers

Verse 1
She was told she couldn't fly the American flag
That sort of thing is not allowed around here
We've got rules and our regulations
Say you've got to take them down my dear
She just couldn’t understand
Why showing honor would be banned

Chorus
She had to show her American pride
It didn’t take long to find the strength and dig down deep inside
And she knew that she was in for one tough ride
Hold Steady and show your American pride

Verse 2
They gave us more than only four
Weeks, but it seems that’s all they want to do
What about the debt, lest we forget
What they all did for me and you
It seems they sure could allow
A small symbol of freedom there somehow

Chorus
They had to show their American pride
It didn’t take long to find the strength and dig down deep inside
And they knew that they were in for one tough ride
Hold Steady and show your American pride

Bridge
What happen to our sense of honor and respect?
When we're out there and our song is played
Some people don’t stand up and many don't stop talking
It's more than just a piece of cloth that’s being displayed

Verse 3
He never flinched, he stood waiting there
For the orders to come through
He'd been trained; he'd never done this before
But he knew exactly what to do
One of the seven standing strong and proud
Waiting for the signal and then tears from the crowd

Chorus
He had to show his American pride
It didn’t take long to find the strength and dig down deep inside
And he stood there with his brothers by his side
Holding steady and showing American pride
So, hold steady and show your American pride
Let's hold steady and show our American pride
