Foolish Heart

Words by Dave Molter

I’ve been tryin to make you love me
I’ve been tryin oh so long
But you’re still up there so high above me
Must be doin something wrong

 

CHORUS

But my foolish heart, foolish heart
Must know something I don’t know
Yes my foolish heart, foolish heart
Just refuses to let go

VERSE 2
If I act the fool to attract your attention
Could I get a little smile
Or would you view me with apprehension
Sometimes I feel like I’m on trial

 

CHORUS

 

BRIDGE

Ain’t no need for you to run and hide
But I’ve said all of this all before
Baby, I’m right outside
Please, please open up the door


VERSE 3

Maybe you’re right
And maybe I’m wrong
I just don’t know which way to go
In my head I know I should listen
But somethin inside inside is sayin
No no no


CHORUS

VERSE 1
You know I’m in heaven every time you smile
Won’t you stay with me for a while
Girl you can’t imagine How good it would feel
Just one word from you could make it real

CHORUS:
Tell me that you love me Tell me that you want me
Tell me that you need me And darlin I’ll be there

BRIDGE
They all tell me it can be like this
I’ll hear music every time we kiss

VERSE 2

Make my dream come true dear
Tell me that you care
Say you’ll be with me everywhere
Please don’t hesitate
You know that I’ll be true
Girl I just can wait to be with you

Story

Dave Molter: Lead vocals, bass, MIDI programming

Buddy Hall: Guitars, MIDI programming. producer/engineer

Jim "Doc" Dougherty: Slide guitar

Jason Kendall: Saxophone

Reb Beach: "Honeymoon Bed"

Ideally, a song tells a story. Many of my songs are anchored by an event that happened to me or a friend, "Fading Away" is one of the latter. And its lyrics are adaptable to whatever sex you happen to identify as.   Cheating is a common theme in music of all genres. Although the song's protagonist is not me,  the poor guy in "Fading Away" has been ill-used by his lover, and he's not happy. In fact, he feels like he is becoming invisible, thus the title. Halfway through, he's at a wild party. There's one particularly boisterous woman there, and she apparently caught his attention,  because by song's end, he's happy his two-timing baby is hitting the road. All he wants is for her to return his beloved records. Who of us of a certain age hasn't lost a great LP in a split-up? I never did get back "Tumbleweed Connection." These days, at least it's easy to retain your mp3s.

Fading Away

Music & Lyrics by Dave Molter

© Copyright 2019 All rights reserved.

VERSE 1

I used to think that we had somethin' really special
And we would be together for a  long, long time
But now I see that it was only superficial
You drive me out of my mind

I know that you been steppin' out with other fellas
It’s as plain as day
Congratulations if you tried to make me jealous   
Cause I feel betrayed

CHORUS

And I yi yi yi’m fading away,
Coming apart at the seams
Cause you, you, you, you, you ran away
You ran away with my dreams

VERSE 2

You used to tell me I reminded you of Elvis
Your little hunka hunka burnin’ love
But now I get the feelin’ that you gonna shelve us
I guess I wasn’t enough

I wish that I could say it really doesn’t phase me
But I ain’t built that way
So grab your pencil and start to erase me
Then blow me away

CHORUS

VERSE 3
We used to make it every day and twice on Sunday
Now you’re too busy watchin’ Jeopardy
Who was the guy my sister saw you with that one day?
It sure wasn’t me

I heard you’re leavin’ for a permanent vacation
I got just one thing to say
Give back my records on your way to the station
I need something to play

CHORUS X2

SONG STORY
"Be the Sunshine" is a throwback to the psychedelic era that began with the Summer of Love in 1967. I came of age in that era and its music still moves me. Lyrics about love, trippy guitars, crazy sounds panning left and right, over-the-top drums -- it's all there. The lyrics say it all: spread love with everything you do. Be the Sunshine!

VERSE 1
Ahhhh won’t you come with us
Take a ride to see the sunrise
Ahhhh how it can lift us
Wipe away the tears from our eyes

CHORUS

And you know everything’s gonna be all right
'Cause the world’s not as bad as it seems
If we let our love be our guiding light
We can run, we can fly, we can soar
We can be the sunshine

VERSE 2

Ahhhh see the sun showers
Warm the world with rays from above
Ahhhh don’t waste an hour
Spread the word, the word about love

 CHORUS

Ahhhhh love will astound you
Welcome it with arms open wide
Ahhhhh let it surround you
It’s a feeling that you can’t hide

CHORUS

Lyrics

Mid-Century Man

Music & lyrics by Dave Molter © 2019 All rights reserved

I was born around mid-century
People say that's the problem with me
But I don't believe they really understand
I came of age in the Summer of Love
It's an emotion we don't have enough of
Just like Jackie sang
Put a little love in your heart

(Mid-century man)
We had a dream and we can't let it die
(Mid-century man)
It's so apparent you don't need to ask why
I don't have a plan
just do what I can
Mid-century man

Take a look around, tell me what do you see
A world of people like you and me
And I Still believe
We have some common ground
There are differences that keep us apart
Here's a solution and it comes from the heart
Just like Johnny sang
All you need is love


(Mid-century man)
But it can't be just a song that we sing
(Mid-century man)
We can make a difference with the love that we bring
Make it your plan, do what you can
Mid-century man
