  • 03:21 Lyrics Real Special Feelin'
    Written by: Mark Brine
     Whenever you're around
     The right words to express it
     Those are words I haven't found
     But somethin' sorta tells me
     There'll be time 'n, in time we'll see
     But, I got a real special feelin'
     About you 'n me
     Chorus: A real special feelin'
     'N it's bringin' peace of mind
     If we ain't in love then we're the fools
     'Cause, we're showin' all the signs
     A real special feelin'
     Ain't that what love's supposed to be
     Yeah, I got a real special feelin'
     About you 'n me

    Written by:  MARK BRINE

     I don't know what it is about you
     But you sure can satisfy
     You've got some kinda lover's knack
     You hardly even have 'ta try

     (it's) like you were born with somethin' extra
     You give me more than what's enough
     And, oh darlin' you sure got a way with love
     YOU SURE GOT A WAY with love
     You sure got a way with love
     You sure do know your stuff
     You sure got a way with love
     It all just comes so nat'ral to you
     So effortless and free
     And bein' on the receivin' end
     I guess someone up there sure likes me

     'cause, I've been blessed, by simply bein'
     The only one you're dreamin' of
     And oh darlin', you sure do do got a way with love

  • 04:35 Download Lyrics I've Always Been a Sucker For Your Smile (Miss Rebecca)
    Written by:  MARK BRINE
     Remember when we was just knee-high to a grasshopper
     'n you talked me inta puttin' that thumbtack on Mrs. Daley's chair
     Well, I sure got my behind warmed 'n you just sat there 'n smiled, Rebecca
     'n in spite of all my agony, somehow I just didn't care
     Then, there was the time down at Miller's General Store
     when I tried to steal that candy bar for you
     Well, I sure caught the devil 'n once again you just smiled that famous smile
     'n in spite of all the scoldin' I just had 'ta laugh about it, too 'cause
     I've always been a sucker for your smile, Miss Rebecca
     From childhood thru high school days, I always was (2.played) your fool
     Your ever-true accomplice 'n you've known it all the while
     Yeah, I've always been a sucker for your smile (ah, Miss Rebecca)
     All those crazy episodes, oh the stories we could tell
     That time ya got me to climb down then take ya to the movies
     with them coins from the wishin' well
     Yeah, it's been one situation after another for you 'n me
     We've sure had more than our fair share of adventures 'n catastrophes
     But, now we've grown a little older 'n you're sure bloomin' inta a fine young lady
     'n I can see a different sorta mischief in your eyes
     'n yes, I can tell what's on your mind 'n I'm game, just like ev'ry other time
     'n I swear I’m gonna be that way until the day I die. 'cause …

  • 03:17 Lyrics I Woke Up in Time
    Written by: FAYNE CLARK

    I WOKE UP IN TIME, didn't oversleep
    Rains still fallin' but my tears will keep
    My time's comin' I just don't know when
    And I woke up in time to be lonely again

    I’ve been down now for the last few days
    Looked around for love, couldn’t find it any place
    Kept an open mind, found a million friends
    But woke up in time to be lonely again
    Now I don't want a love to cling to
    Or to hold too tight on me
    Just someone who’ll touch my heart and leave my spirit free

    But I guess some of us just got (born) to be alone
    Do the best we can to make it on our own
    Share lovin' moments every now and then
    And wake up in time to be lonely again
    Now I don't want a love to cling to
    Or to hold too tight on me
    Just someone who’ll touch my hear And leave my spirit free
    But I guess some are born to be alone
    Do the best we can to make it on our own
    Share lovin' moments every now and then
    And wake up in time to be lonely again
    Yes, I woke up in time to be lonely again

  • 03:57 Lyrics When the Moon Was in the Sky
    Written by: MARK BRINE
    I still see the summer night memories
    Of a long ago July
    It was a whole different world then
    The dark blue night would hide us
    'Neath it's blanket as we'd lie
    And wait for that one moment
    When the moon was in the sky
    When the moon was in the sky
    There was a light that lit my way
    Then it disappeared with you
    And now my world's dark, everyday
    But I never thought it possible
    That a love that strong could die
    When the moon was in the sky
    For it all seemed like a dream then
    A summer love to grow
    Far beyond the autumn leaves
    And the falling winter snows
    At least that's what I thought I'd found there
    In the sparkle of your eyes
    But, it must've been just reflections from
    When the moon was in the sky

  • 02:48 Download Lyrics If Your Thoughts Are Ever Mine
    Written by: MARK BRINE
    If your heart is ever hurtin', it don't have 'ta be
    If loneliness is slammin' doors, I'm your window free
    If the world becomes too heavy, I'll hold it up for you and gladly too
    Your life, if it gets old, I'll make it all feel new
    Don't have a second doubt
    'Cause mine are all of you
    You're all I think about and
    Somewhere down the road
    There's gonna come a time
    Yes, there'll be a time for me
    I'll still be waitin'
    If your thoughts are ever mine
    When you're drowning in your tears and none will dive into the raging sea
    That's pulling down, I'll rescue you
    For I'm just waitin' on the shore, watchin' over you - yeah I really do
    I always have 'cause I'm the one who really cares for you

  • 04:19 Lyrics Aggie (alternate take)
    Written by: MARK BRINE

    AGGIE, it's been such a long, long time
    Aggie, are ya gettin' along fine
    Seems like but a century
    Since I smelt your sweet perfume
    Aggie, you're still on my mind
    Lilacs in the grove
    Your beige cameos
    Deep sarsaparilla eyes
    And the day ya had to go
    It's all there in the past
    Colors shattered like bits of glass
    Leavin' my mended stained-glass heart
    From such a long, long time ago
    Aggie, Aggie
    It's a shame ya never knew
    How much you meant to me
    There's just so much
    I could have said to make ya see
    But it's too late
    Aggie, do ya ever think of me
    'Cause you're still fresh in my thoughts
    And that's the way you'll always be
    Restin' peacefully
    On the piazza swing for two
    Aggie, waitin', hopin' there for me

  • 03:20 Lyrics Dear Jesse
    Written by: MARK BRINE
    Jesse was a good boy, he didn't mean nobody harm
    He just loved young Ginny with a love that was so strong
    Whatever you are wantin', Ginny, I will fetch for you
    Bring me but a gold ring, I can wear in thoughts of you, just
    A gold ring, I can wear in thoughts of you, DEAR JESSE (oh)
    Jesse took a pistol from his daddy's woodshed door
    'N went down to the city-near 'n robbed the jewelry store
    In the chase that followed, frightened Jesse killed a man
    'N stole away upon a train with the ring still in his hand
    In the days that followed, a note come with the mail
    With the ring he'd stole for Ginny "Wear it without fail
    Soon there came the news of Jesse's capture 'n return
    Murder first degree 'n death by hanging soon they learned
    Ginny came up to the jail, she came upon his cell
    Jesse made her promise of the ring she'd never tell
    The scaffold holds my true love all my dreams 'n everything
    'N I stand in the shadow clutchin' to dear Jesse's ring

  • 02:30 Lyrics Kentucky Blue
    Written by: MARK BRINE

    Blue (blue … blue)
    Miss my folks 'n my home (2 friends)
    But most of all, girl, I miss you
    'N I'm so Kentucky Blue
    I left for the city t' see what good I'd do
    Had my dreams of riches my music to pursue
    But, all I've done since I've been here is treasure thoughts of you
    Leaving me in sorrow 'n so Kentucky Blue
    I'm so afraid of failin', music's all I wanna do
    So I'm fightin' with myself inside so afraid of losin' you
    Girl, believe I love you please don't be with someone new
    'Cause, I'll be home to you 'n be true, too 'n no more Kentucky Blue

  • 04:20 Lyrics Pretty Things
    Written by: MARK BRINE

    I was walking down Broadway just the other day
    When in through a little shop window, I saw a young lady
    In a new dress all 'a glowin' her happiness was showin'
    'N I had to stop for the beauty of it, made me
    For she was so in-her-glory 'n her proud husband was too
    As She fluttered about like a butterfly in the lookin' glass
    Then, I saw you in her place with that smile on your face
    'N oouu, how I wished I could, someday do you like that
    Chorus: Pretty, PRETTY THINGS
    Someday I'll get them for you
    For all that you do
    The happiness you bring oouu, oouu
    Pretty things for my pretty thing
    Yeah, my pretty thing
    You say it don't matter, that ya love me anyway
    But deep down inside I can tell that you're not happy
    'Cause your sad eyes give-away 'n it goes on day after day
    'N it only makes me want more 'n more t' give my

  • 02:40 Lyrics Now's the Time I Need You Most
    Written by: Bob Pyle

    God said, if only you believe
    God said, if only you will try
    He said, I will never leave
    I'll be right there by your side
    God said, you will never fall
    I'll be with you as you go
    All you have to do is call
    'Cause I just can't keep myself from slidin'
    As I'm climbin' up Mt. Zion
    I can hear the devil callin'
    Lord, please help me cause I'm fallin'
    And I'm waitin', oh so patiently
    I know you won't forsake me
    Give me back the faith I've lost
    Now's the time I need you most
    God said when you call my name
    I can see inside your heart
    You and I could be the same
    Why should we be so far apart
    Give back the love you took away
    Give back the friendship that we knew
    If you'll do these things for me
    I'll give back everything to you

    Written by: Mark Brine

     You're every song I write
     And sing for all the world to know
     That you're mine through wrong and right
     'Cause, whether it's the sad song
     Or the tender lovin' one
     They're all written just for you
     And that's to who they're sung
     You're my inspiration
     Everything that means a thing
     Is right where it belongs
     'Cause even when I leave this world
     My voice it may be gone
     But all of how I feel still remains
     'Cause, honey, you're my songs

  • 06:06 Lyrics Always You
    Written by: Mark Brine
     Summer came 'n summers went
     The life we knew, the days were spent
     The meadows green, the skies of blue
     And it was ALWAYS YOU, babe
     Always you
     The dreams like rainbows across the horizon
     Always runnin' 'n chasin' 'em - but never arrivin
     But mornin' would come 'n we'd still be risin
     And it was always you - yeah, it was always you
     Life is a mystery, baby
     it just keeps rollin' on by
     No matter whatcha think of it
     Ya just never know why
     No, all ya can do is try
     And babe, we gave it a try
     (Yeah, all you can do is try … just remember)
     It was always you, yeah
     It was, always you
     The regrets, dark clouds just let 'em roll across the sky
     They ain't worth the worry or the tear you cry
     There's only tomorrow, and if it makes ya sigh
     Just remember, too it was always you
