Foolish Heart

Words by Dave Molter
Music by Dave Molter & Wayne Somerville
© Copyright 2019 Dave Molter Music. All rights reserved.


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

Words and music by Dave Molter

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
