Song Lyrics

Very creative title, I know…

Anyway, I finished writing a couple songs yesterday, and I thought I’d share the lyrics. The first song is called “Stuck In My Head.” Basically I’m using a song as a metaphor for faith in this one. I thought it was cleaver. I hope you guys think so too!

I hear the music through the windows
And I am curious so I take my chances
Look inside it’s beautiful
And I want more so I sing the harmony

And ever since
that song’s been stuck in my head
And I’ll sing
‘Cause I never want silence again

Late at night when I’m not sleeping
In the dark I sing that old song
Sounding through the darkest hours
It reminds me that the sun will rise

And ever since
That song’s been stuck in my head
And I’ll sing
‘Cause I never want silence again

Belt it out in my own version
Same old tune you’ve never heard it
Borrowed start to a perfect ending
Borrowed time I take to keep it

And ever since
That song’s been stuck in my head
And I’ll sing
‘Cause I never want silence again

The second song is called “Just Be Nice.” It goes along with the post I wrote a while ago called “Role Models.” If you’re interested, the post explains the point of the song in more detail.

They say you’ve got a one track mind
You’ve given your life up to God
You help the homeless find a place to stay
And you pray like the world is going to end
You haven’t spoken to your brother in years
Since the day you found out he was gay
You left the girl that you loved one night
‘Cause she didn’t know the right god

But why can’t you just be nice?
An open heart needs an open mind
But you just can’t get past your pride
And you’re never going to change a thing

I see you standing there with your picket sign
Yelling at all the passers by
You say you know the truth and the way to life
But all you ever do is look for fault
You say you believe in a merciful God
So what gave you the right to judge?
You say you’re just trying to be like the Lord
But you won’t give anyone a chance

Why can’t you just be nice?
An open heart needs an open mind
But you just can’t get past your pride
And you’re never going to change a thing

You’ll never read between the lines
You can’t see past that great divide
And faith should never make you hate
But you just won’t let go

Why can’t you just be nice?
An open heart needs an open mind
But you just can’t get past your pride
And you’re never going to change a thing

Why can’t you just be nice?

That’s all folks!
