Between Us

Written By: Dave Hardin Copyright 2000

Iím haunted by
Seven angels
and my old ford she just took ill
south of Macon

These Georgia pines
the red clay bakiní
all I own
sittiní here Ďside
some long grey pavement

It ainít you
and it ainít me
itís just too many in between usíes
between us

It werenít love
but it werenít hate
jusí to little too late
to save us
to save us

the new cars fly
north on vacation
aní I bum rides from passersby
the filliní stations

I take my time
no destination
and the more I sleep
the more I dream
and youíre there sayiní

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE.

Nu Varres

Written by: David Hardin Copyright 2000
 
 

Becky locks the door
at the I.G.A. downtown
mops the dust from aisle to aisle to aisle
and round and round and round
and round and round and round

Where has she been
what has she won
what has she seen
what has she gone here in
Nu Varres

Too many years of one on one
of hand to mouth
and now sheís done here
but that leaves Bobby

Bobby clocks out at the Mobil station
out off 301
weaves his way back
through the cars
and the beach and the palms and the sun,
to his only one

Where has he been
what has he done
what has he seen
what has he won here
in Nu Varres

Too many years of one on one
of hand to mouth
and  now heís done here
in Nu Varres

same as always

Where have they been
what have they done
what have they seen
what have they won here in
Nu Varres

Too many years of one on one
of hand to mouth
and now theyíre done here
now theyíre done

Queen Sized Wall

  Written: By Dave Hardin Copyright2000

The things I admire most
Are the things I canít provide
And the things Iíd best forget
Are the things youíve learned to hide

And scrapes are slow to heal
Sleepiní on your side
And there's a queen size wall between us
That a stronger man might climb

I sold my old guitar
On the chance itíd make you smile
And you cried your self to sleep
And I sat up for awhile

And the T.V. made a noise
That scared me half to death
And it sounded like forever
The one place we canít get

And scrapes are slow to heal
Sleepiní on your side
And there's a queen size wall between us
That a stronger man might climb

Ramses and Nefertiti

Written by Dave Hardin 2000

Ramses and Nefertiti
Layed down along the river Nile
Talkiní Ďbout a movie that theyíd seen
Looked out across the water
At the cat mans cheesy smile
And wondered what their futures might have been

If theyíd had one less God to depend on
And one less pyramid to build on
They smiled when they remembered nights in Babylon
Then they danced against the moon with their shoes off.

Them heroes outta that book of Dead
Sing an ancient lullaby
The lovers kiss and part best of friends
The old boys up and Giza
Shiver and fork that evil eye
When they think of what their futures might have been

If theyíd had one more God to depend on
And one more pyramid to work on
They smiled when they dream of nights in Babylon
They laugh against the moon with their shoes off
Then they dance against the moon with their shoes off
Then they sleep beneath the moon with their shoes off.

Thereís You

 Written by: David Hardin  Copyright 2000
 

All the time Iíve wasted
all the years Iíve tasted
all the love Iíve taken
and all the promises Iím breakiní
Donít stand up against the past
aní all the loves I knew would last
like you
There was you
Now thereís you
against my ceiling at night
and thereís you on the news
and thereís you when Iím too weak to fight
thereís you
Honey thereís you
thereís all the lies I told ya
and all the dreams I sold ya
fall and crumble long the way
the less you see
the more you pay
Thereís still you against my ceiling at night
and thereís you on the news
and thereís you when Iím too tired to fight
Thereís you
thereís you
Honey thereís you

You Donít Care

 Written by: Dave Hardin Copyright 2000

All of them girls in your school
They look like so much fun
And you wear them jeans like you do
But I canít get me none
 

And Iíve been love you more
Than Iíve been breathiní air
And Iíve been watchiní your walk
And you donít seem to care

She donít care
She donít care
 

Do you think your momma knows what
You do when she ainít home
We sure ainít  watchiní t.v.
And my how you have grown

Iím head over heals for your touch
At the risk of beiní seen
Cause fifteen íll buy you twenty
And you know what I mean

Honey I been loviní you more
Than I been breathiní air
And I been watchiní your walk
And you donít seem care
 

And Iíve been crazy for you
Like an old boy shouldnít dare
Hell Iíd walk through to hold you
And you donít even care

The Tree

 Written by: Dave Hardin Copyright 2000

Theyíre cominí out this afternoon
To take down Daddyís tree
The one that him and momma planted
Back in nineteen twenty three

Ďhind the home that I grew up in
Front of fields that Iíd get lost in
Through three wars and the girlfriends Iíve long since forgotten
There was you
There was me
And the tree

Theyíll cut her down
And bust her up
And haul her to the dump
Charge me fifty dollars
And leave me with the stump
Where every dog Iíve ever known
Is buried in her shade
And the first kiss that we ever stoled
And one boy that we made
Between you
Between me
And the tree

Thereís a ring
Thatís forty five
And you were young
And so was I
And we took pictures every easter
Stuckíem in a book
And hide them in the closet
Ďcause weíre both afraid to look

At us three
Beneath the tree

And thereís a ring
That was senior prom
And a ring
That was Vietnam
Itís twenty five years later
I still canít believe heís gone
Save for the tree house on the flatbed
Thatís parked out on the lawn

Now itís just you
And me
Now itís just you
And me

Nine Years Alone

written by: Dave Hardin Copyright 2000

The coffee's cold
the bread's all hard
the car's on blocks
out in the yard

Got me a job
got my own cards
my old lady's lost
on the phone

The kid wakes up
puts on his clothes
eats his breakfast
everyday
Sometimes I catch him
lookin' old
too tired to smile much
hair missed the comb

Nine years alone
inside his head
an' all the stories he's ever read
had happy endings
like you grow up poor
and you end up clean
at God's front door

Sometimes I catch him
lookin' old
he's walked in my shoes
nine years alone
 

The first year's smiles
Then comes no
Five more for learnin'
What you can't show
Two more for hidden'
The things he's grown
Inside his heart
Nine years alone

Nine years alone
Inside his head
And all the stories he's ever read
With happy endings
Like you grow up poor
But you end up clean
At Gods front door
 

Sometimes I catch him
chewin' slow
lookin' my way
nine years alone
