Here I Sit, Broken-Hearted

Lyrics and music by Ed Perrone (BMI)

Digital single (2017)

They say the saddest things in life
Are the dreams that don’t come true.
They build you up, they let you down,
They break your heart in two.

Some men are more sensitive,
Disappointment takes its toll.
It challenges their heart
And then it drains life from their soul.

I read the words of one such man
So many years ago.
They sent a shiver down my spine
Of which you’ll never know.

On a men’s room wall …

The WD-40 Song

Digital single (2015)

One day many years ago, when I was about thirteen,
Daddy took me aside and told me, “Son, there are things you’ve never seen.
I’m gonna tell you now a secret you’ll need to know when you’re a man.
The solution to every guy’s problems come in a little blue sprayin’ can.

Well if your nuts are tight, if your tool is rusty,
If it’s hard to screw because your driver is all crusty,
If you need to slide …

Touring the Cosmos

Lyrics by Ed Perrone and Vicky Perrone

Digital single (2015)

Flying into London but the Queen doesn’t care,
She says Abbie’s going downtown, you can visit her there.
Eating fish and chips and drinking ale in the pub, what a good time.

See the white cliffs of Dover, take the ferry to France,
We don’t know what’s coming next, but we’re gonna take a chance.
Climb aboard the bus where we’re meeting old friends for the first time.

And we’ll be touring the Cosmos…

You Put Me Through the Wringer (and You Hung Me Out to Dry)

Lyrics and music by Ed Perrone (BMI)

Digital single (2010)

I felt so sad and lonely,
Like I never did before.
I thought I was your one and only
‘Til you kicked me out the door.
I never thought I’d see the time
You’d trample on my heart.
But you chewed me up and you spit me out
And that was just the start.

You put me through the wringer
And you hung me out to dry.
My life’s …

From the album, Nostalgic Tears (2003)

Clearing out the cobwebs from the attics of my mind
Sweeping off the dust from all the memories that I find
Hold them to the light and reminisce — but not too long
I have to go
To move along

Turning back the pages in the diary of my years
Leafing through the dreams and hopes, the sorrows and the fears
But now the pages crumble into dust and blow away
I can’t go …

Digital single (2014)

Well, the Congresswoman tells her citizens,
“You know I feel the pain that you feel.”
And then she climbs into her limousine
To go eat a thousand-dollar meal.

And the President tells the people,
“I want our nation to be free.
But if the price of freedom is tyranny,
Well, that’s the way it’s got to be!”

And when are you going to realize
That they’re lying to your face?
They tell you what you want to hear
Just …

From the album, Holy Wars (2006)

All the witches are in chains and you peek out your window
Watch the priests drag them down the street to the burning ground
See the torches, feel the flames, and you hear them screaming
Hide your face, close the curtain, it’ll all go away.

Hear the righteous ones preach that it’s all for the good of the people
Send the sinners back down to the devil where they belong
But your heart says those sinners are really …
