Foolish Heart

Words by Dave Molter
Music by Dave Molter & Wayne Somerville

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 now
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


Mid-Century Man

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

CHORUS

Mid-century man   (we had a dream and we can’t let it die)
Mid-century man     (It’s so apparent we you don’t need to ask why)
I don’t have a plan, so I do what I can
Mid-century man
 
VERSE 2

Look around tell me what do you see world of people like you & 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 

 CHORUS

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

 CHORUS

Mid-century man   (No 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   (Make it your plan)   
Do what you can (Do what you can)
Mid-century man


 Be the Sunshine

Words and music by Dave Molter

 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

 VERSE 3

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


 Tell Me That You Love Me

Words and music by Dave Molter

 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

 CHORUS 2x


 Fading Away

 Words and music by Dave Molter
© Copyright 2019 Dave Molter Music. All rights reserved.
 

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 faze 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

 

Oh Woman, Don't You Cry

Words by Dave Molter 
Music by Dave Molter & Rich Boguszewsi

Oh woman, won’t you tell me why your pretty eyes are cryin’ 
Each time I see you walk on by of that there’s no denyin’ 
I want to stop you there and say, Don’t be in such a hurry 
‘Cause I could be your man today, You’d never need to worry 

Interlude
Just to hold you, feel you near me 
Just to touch you, can you hear me 

Oh woman, I know love is blind, so you can’t see he’s lyin’ But he will never treat you kind, because he’s just not tryin’
There must be something I can do, some perfect words that I can say
To let you know my heart is true, I’ll be here for you every day 

CHORUS
Oh woman, don’t you cry (There is no reason to be blue) 
Oh woman, don’t you cry (You know I am the man for you) 
Oh woman, don’t you cry (‘Cause I’m the one who loves you) 


Oh woman, won’t you walk with me, listen to what I’m sayin’ 
No other way for you to see, it’s not a game I’m playin’ 
My love for you is just so strong, I’ve got to have you by my side 
Can’t keep this secret very long, it’s just too much for me to hide 


Oh woman, don’t you cry (What can I do to make you see) 
Oh woman, don’t you cry (That you should give your heart to me) 
Oh woman, don’t you cry (I want to be there by your side) 
Oh woman, don’t you cry (And I will keep you satisfied)

Lemmings 
Words and music by Dave Molter

I’ve called you here together to tell you ‘bout my plan 
To keep our country strong and free 
And remain the promised land 
To do it we will build a wall or a fence to block the way 
Don’t press me for the details 
Just listen to what I say   


America is overrun with drug lords, pimps and whores 
They got here when they crawled up on 
Our sunny southern shores 
Let’s round them up and keep them all in cages, don’t you know 
Until we can just dump them back in the Gulf of Mexico 

CHORUS 
And like lemmings to the sea 
I know you’ll follow me 
Cause I ain’t askin’ you to think 
Just say that you believe 
The crap I put on Twitter 
And the Facebook hate they spew 
‘Cause if you see it online 
You know it must be true 


I know that you all follow me and bask in my success 
Because I say what’s in your head 
And all without finesse 
You memorize my taglines, you mumble in your sleep 
“Lock her up” and “Build the wall” 
You really are like sheep 

GREEK CHORUS 
His memory is as long 
As his tiny little fingers 
He pours it on so strong and the scent it really lingers 
Lingers … 

VERSE 4 
The founding fathers left us a document so rare 
Which I have done my best to shred and throw up in the air 
It said all men are equal, but I devised a test 
The answers show beyond a doubt 
That I am more equal than the rest  

CHORUS

(Really Nothin’ New) Under the Sun 
Words & Music by Dave Molter

Every day just made me crazy 
Didn’t do much, I was lazy 
I was put down till I downed out 
Put my foot down when I found out 

CHORUS
That it all stays the same 
You can learn the rules but never the game 
When it’s all said and done 
There’s really nothin’ new Under the Sun 


If you’re distraught ‘cause you’re lied to 
And you got caught when you tried to 
And the shakeup made your face long 
When you wake up it’ll all be gone 


So don’t be surprised 
If the world’s still there when you open your eyes 
You can ask anyone 
There’s really nothing’ new Under the Sun 


You can move out, take a sea cruise 
Or you can tune out all the bad news 
Pull your phone down,  change your address 
Find a new town where you mean less 


But it all comes out the same 
You can change your face and even your name 
But you’ve only just begun 
There’s really nothing’ new Under the Sun 

Yeah … You can ask anyone 
There’s really nothing’ new Under the Sun 
But you’ve only just begun 
There’s really nothing’ new Under the Sun
