(JUST LIKE) YOUR PERFUME

(JUST LIKE) YOUR PERFUME
(Tim Black, 2014)
Capo 2

West coast summer night
Orange 'n pink sandbar sky
Drivin' to escape those city lights
Long hair blowin in the wind
Scent of flowers on your skin
Nothin in this world has felt so right


Parked out underneath stars
Our bodies throwing sparks

CHORUS
Now my truck smells just like YOUR PERFUME
Everywhere I go it's like I'm driving next to you
I'm a simple man
There's things that I don't understand
But girl I know this much is true
I love my truck a whole lot more
When it smells like YOUR PERFUME
Yes, I do

Drove you home at dawn
Front porch light was on
Walked you up the steps for one last kiss
Your roommate went and chained the door
So we sat and kissed a little more 'n
Talked about the things on our bucket list

Rushed to worked an hour late
Didn't even change

CHORUS
Now my shirt smells just like YOUR PERFUME
Everywhere I go it's like I'm standing next to you
I'm a simple man
There's things that I don't understand
But girl I know this much is true
I love this shirt
A whole lot more
When it smells like YOUR PERFUME

BRIDGE

I've always been the cautious kind
So it kinda blew both our minds
When I bought that diamond ring

CHORUS
Now my whole life smells like YOUR PERFUME
Every mornin' I wake up
Lying next to you
I'm a simple man
There's things that I don't understand
But girl I know this much is true
Yeah girl you know it' true
I love my life
A whole lot more
When it smells like YOUR PERFUME
Just like YOUR PERFUME
Like YOUR PERFUME
Oh yes I do

[Lyrics]


GET OUR WEEKEND

GET OUR WEEKEND ON
(T. BLACK, 2014)

Woo hoo hoo
Woo hoo hoo

Feel like knockin' out the punchclock
Wanna lose my boots and worksocks
Hang my bare feet off a dock
Under a light the fuse fireworks sky

Gonna prison break this town
Spend a couple days gettin' outta bounds

CHORUS
C'mon crank them badboy country tunes
Let's GET OUR WEEKEND ON
Sail away on an inner tube
Cruise out to the sun
Gonna take the time we ain't been takin'
Break the rules that need breakin'
Just like Willy and Merle would want
Gonna take the gloves off
And GET OUR WEEKEND ON
Woo hoo hoo

Tommy's playin' guitar
Naked on the hood of my car
Beltin' out Freebird
Chewin' that Cohiba cigar
And he ain't comin' down
Til that big ol' sun comes back around

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Been takin' work like a pill
Pushin' rope up a hill for way too long
Down by the lakeside on a sunburned joyride
Is right where I belong
Woo hoo hoo

CHORUS

Crank them badboy country tunes
Sail away on an inner tube
Gonna take the time we aint' been taking
Break the rules that need breakin'
Just like Willy and Merle would want
Take the gloves off
And GET OUR WEEKEND ON
GET OUR WEEKEND ON
GET OUR WEEKEND ON
GET OUR WEEKEND ON

[Lyrics]


GIVE YOU UP

Girl thinkin' you were an angel was my first mistake
You wrapped around my lonely heart just like a snake
Now I'm turning to stone from the poison words you said
You picked my birthday to tell me you love me
Then whispered in my ear that you hate all my friends

Girl I gotta GIVE YOU UP
Can't take no more of this crazy love
Girl i gotta GIVE YOU UP yeah yeah
Couldn't see it 'til now
But you're breakin' me down
I gotta GIVE YOU UP

You built me up like a house of cards and I took the bait
But lovin' you is tryin' to hold onto a ricochet
Last time we made love you screamed someone else's name
You dragged me to Hell and back girl
Now you're trying tell me you were just playing

Girl I gotta GIVE YOU UP
Can't take no more of this crazy love
Girl i gotta GIVE YOU UP yeah yeah
Couldn't see it 'til now
But you're breakin' me down
I gotta GIVE YOU UP

You've been my sweet addiction for so long
But it's wrong

Girl I gotta GIVE YOU UP
Can't take no more of this crazy love
Girl i gotta GIVE YOU UP
Yeah girl I gotta GIVE YOU UP

Girl I gotta GIVE YOU UP
Can't take no more of this crazy love
Girl i gotta GIVE YOU UP yeah yeah
Couldn't see it 'til now
But you're breakin' me down
I gotta GIVE YOU
I gotta GIVE YOU UP

Biography:

I am a singer/songwriter from Victoria, BC, Canada. I grew up in Ontario and have been writing seriously for about 8 years now, writing as a hobby since I was a teenager.

My influences range from The Band to Billy Bragg, Jackson Browne to Jason Isbell. I play out once a week and love the process of writing songs and then seeing how people respond to them.

Note: The songs I have uploaded here are radio-friendly demos featuring the incomparable Ron Wallace, delivering the vocals as only a Nashville pro can do!
