Lyrics

I'm Not Getting Over You

Copyright © 2018 Thomas M. Link – All Rights Reserved

 

Verse:

Friends say that it’s over
They say just forget her
You’ll find someone better
If you’ll only keep on trying
But when you’ve found your love
The stars above can burn and fall

Still you will pursue her
Don’t want someone newer
You want who you’ve always loved
Always needed

The stars up in the sky
Match the stars that blind your eyes

Chorus:

Some things aren’t meant to last forever
Love has no guarantees
I know but I swear I never
Thought you would ever leave

If you say it’s foolish to start back over
Let me play the fool
Because no matter how I’ve tried
All the tears we’ve cried
I’m not getting over you

 
Verse:
We’ve been together so long
How can it be so wrong
That we can’t forgive each other
Say we’re sorry
Maybe it’s the pain
Maybe it’s the blame we share.
 
Saying that’s it’s your fault
Saying that it’s my fault
Doesn’t really change the equation
I’m just saying
If we’re singin’ in the rain
Both of us get wet the same

 
Chorus:
Some things aren’t meant to last forever
Love has no guarantees
I know but I swear I never
Thought you would ever leave

If you say it’s foolish to start back over
Let me play the fool
Because no matter how I’ve tried
All the tears we’ve cried
I’m not getting over you
 
Bridge:
People tell me time is a precious thing
And I shouldn’t waste it on things I can’t attain
I’m so tired of living in this world alone
I have to hold on
My heart can’t let you go
 
Chorus:
Some things aren’t meant to last forever
Love has no guarantees
I know but I swear I never
Thought you would ever leave

If you say it’s foolish to start back over
Let me play the fool
Because no matter how I’ve tried
All the tears we’ve cried
I’m not getting over you
 
Because no matter how I’ve tried
And all the tears we’ve cried
I’m not getting over you.

Lyrics

You’re My Girl Tonight

Copyright © by Thomas M. Link – All Rights Reserved

 3, 4…

Verse:
When I see you dance, girl, I feel my body rock
Love is like a time bomb, going tick tock
Ooo, and it won’t stop

Chorus:
You’re a bad girl, but I know better
You’re just a tease; I think I’ll just forget you girl
Then I see you dancing - I hear you singing
My heart says, “run away!”
But I’ve got to see you; you’re my girl, tonight

Verse:
When you’re on the stage, now I see you swayin’
Looking back at me, girl – as if you’re saying’
That you really want me

Chorus:
But, you’re a bad girl, but I know better
You’re just a tease; I think I’ll just forget you girl
Then I see you dancing - I hear you singing
My heart says, “run away!”, yeah yeah yeah
But I’ve got to see you; you’re my girl, tonight

Bridge:
The way you move your hips –the way you toss your hair
Lips so full and eyes that make men stare
I can’t feel my heartbeat or hear a sound
The whole world stops, baby when you’re around.

(Repeated) Verse:
When I see you dance, girl, you make my body rock
Love is like a time bomb going tick tock
Ooo, and it won’t stop

Chorus:
You’re a bad girl, but I know better
You’re just a tease; I think I’ll just forget you girl
Then I see you dancing - I hear you singing
My heart says, “run away!”, yeah yeah yeah
But I’ve got to see you; you’re my girl, tonight

I’ve got to see you; you’re my girl, tonight
I’ve got to see you; you’re my girl, tonight
I’m going to see you; you’re my girl, tonight

Lyrics

Edge Of My Grave

(single)

Copyright © 2018 by Thomas M Link – All Rights Reserved

 

Intro (music)

 

Verse
Creatures of habit, we prey in the night.

Look for a savior who can tell wrong from right.
Keep getting offers to be saved every day.
Who wants salvation? They can't give it away


Chorus

And I can see my life goes spiraling down and down and down and down
I'm food for worms in a cage I'm just a step from the edge of my grave

 

Bridge

Don't tell me you're sorry;

Can't be as sorry as me

Your kiss was sweeter than wine

But love is too damn bitter for me

Bridge 2

So let me die
Just let me die
Just let me die
You know my end is almost here

Just let me die
Please let me die
Please let me die
You know my end is very clear
And there’s nothing for you here

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

Verse

You said you'd love me; I could do as I please.
But love like mine is just a social disease.
I'm not your love, it’s just a charade.
Just close the book, you've read the last page.

Chorus

(And) I can see my life goes spiraling down and down and down and down
I'm food for worms in a cage I'm just a step from the edge of my grave


Bridge
 
Don’t tell me you’re sorry;

Can't be as sorry as me
Your kiss was sweeter than wine
But love is too damn bitter for me
Love is too damn bitter for me

Lyrics

Do It in the Name of Love

Copyright © by Thomas M. Link – All Rights Reserved

( Music x 4) Intro

 Verse:
She’s cold as snow
Like a freak on blow
Burns like the sun – at forty below
Invited me in
Offered me sin
And said do it in the name of love.

Some say love – Is like a drug
I don’t think they mean kiss and hug
They mean this girl
Who can shatter your world and
Do it in the name of Love
Do it in the name of Love

Music x 2

Verse:
She drives hot, fast cars
Like a rock n’ roll star
You want to die young? You don’t have to go far
The girl is complete
Built to compete and
Do it in the name of Love
Do it in the name of Love.

 Chorus:
Your love is my addiction
Your kisses soft and cold
Your love is my affliction
You came and took my soul
Ten thousand years and longer
That’s all my heart requires
My body aches to hold you
Your touch is all that I desire… though it burns like fire

Music x 4

Verse:
Tattooed – no tan
She ought to be banned
Winks at the boys and they all understand
She’s just a fling
Not a permanent thing
She’ll do it in the name of love 

Goth-black hair
A vampire stare
Skin so white with a porcelain glare
Her Teeth sink in, and
I start thinkin’
Do it in the name of Love
Do it in the name of Love

Chorus:
Your love is my addiction
Your kisses soft and cold
Your love is my affliction
You came and took my soul
Ten thousand years and longer
That’s all my heart requires
My body aches to hold you
Your touch is all that I desire… though it burns like fire

Yeah, Burn, Burn, Burn…
Burn me up like fire. (Yeah!)

Instrumental Break

Chorus:
Your love is my addiction
Your kisses soft and cold
Your love is my affliction
You came and took my soul
Ten thousand years and longer
That’s all my heart requires
My body aches to hold you
Your touch is all that I desire… though it burns like fire

 Music x 4 - Burn me up like fire

 Verse:
Cold as snow
Like a freak on blow
Burns like the sun – at forty below
Invited me in
Offered me sin
And said do it in the name of Love.

Tattooed – no tan
She ought to be banned
Winks at the boys and they all understand
She’s just a fling
Not a permanent thing
She’ll do it in the name of Love
Do it in the name of Love

Goth-black hair
A vampire stare
Skin so white with a porcelain glare
Her teeth sink in, and
I start thinkin’
Do it in the name of love
Do it in the name of love

Outro:
Do it in the name of love
Do it in the name of lovw

Yeah, do it in the name of love
Come on do it in the name of love

Do it in the name of love
Do it in the name of….    Love

Story

This song started as an idea in September that seemed a bit out of reach for a song-writer musician who, to this point, had played swing-style big band only as a drummer. But, since it's release it's made it onto Christmas playlists at your favorite restaurant, mall, and grocery store.  Hopefully it heads into being a Christmas classic!

If you like Swingin' Christmas, let me know and I'll work adding some other swing numbers to my repertoire!

Lyrics

Swingin’ Christmas

Copyright © by Thomas M. Link – All Rights Reserved

Christmas time is finally here

Time to spread some Christmas cheer
And remember why we’re here
Let’s sing some Christmas songs

Up above the stars are bright
Down below it’s snowy white
Let’s wake up this silent night
And swing some Christmas songs

If you can’t sing like Ella or Sinatra too
You can be one happy fella
Singin’ ‘bout things the angels do.

Underneath the Christmas star
People join from near and far
Doesn’t matter where you are
Let’s swing some Christmas songs

Music

Maybe you like hip hop or good old rock n’ roll
Maybe you like funky soul
It doesn’t matter how you roll

Whether you are young or old
Time to brave the Christmas cold
Let your voice be loud and bold
And swing some Christmas songs

Music

Up above the stars are bright
Down below the snow is white
Let’s wake up this silent night
And swing some Christmas songs

Maybe it takes you higher rockin’ round the Christmas tree
Or chestnuts on an open fire
May be all that you desire

Christmas time is finally here
Time to spread some Christmas cheer
And remember why we’re here
Let’s swing some Christmas songs

Instrumental

Maybe all is calm and bright
Or jingle bells will make things right
Don’t be frosty and uptight
Let’s swing some Christmas songs

So when you hear them carol don’t sit there and be rude
Otherwise I swear I’ll
Have to turn and call you Mr. Scrooge.

Up above the stars are bright
Down below the snow is white
Let’s wake up this silent night
And swing some Christmas songs

Christmas time is finally here
Time to spread some Christmas cheer
And remember why we’re here (Slow Outro)
Let’s Swing some Christmas
Sing Some Christmas
Swing- Some – Christmas - Songs
