Matt Costa Ballad Of Miss Kate

You gave me your word, then you took your word back

Where once I had faith now all I see is black

Black seeing black

I gave you up rather than giving in

Where once there was virtue, it’s fallen to sin

Black seeing black

You gave me your word

Then you flew like a bird

Never looking back

You can run, you can try

But you won’t get away this time

You played me for a fool, in your heart you had deceit

I made you up inside my mind, when finally you I meet

You had turned black turning black

I never could have seen how you’d shoot that 44

You hit me right below the shoulder, I fell to the floor

I’m on my back, on my back

You shot me with your gun

Then you run, run, run, run

Never looking back

You can run into the street

My tire tracks you will soon meet

And if you run into the woods

I’ll chop you down just like a tree

I rolled into town from years spent in my sleep

The word that the people held was that your price is cheap

Your price is cheap, price is cheap

The house with the red light on and fancy decor

You built your new life hastily so now I find you poor

I find you poor, find you poor

The sheriff found you out

There is guaranteed no doubt

You ain’t coming back

We watched you catch a railroad car

That didn’t get you very far

And when you finally met your match

We watched you kiss the railroad tracks

Black seeing black

Matt Costa Cigarette Eyes

I’ve heard the story, I’m sure he held you down

Forced you to do things while I’m not around

But you lied, yeah you lied

But I’ve got cigarette eyes

Feel uneasy, I think of you less

My mind is so restless and I’m feeling depressed

Oh my, oh my, to see you with that spy

You lie, but I know cause I’ve got cigarette eyes

Out in the country I’m sure no one could tell

You held a victim under your spell

So go hide, well go hide

But I’ve got cigarette eyes

I feel uneasy, I think of you less

My mind is so restless and I’m feeling obsessed

Oh my, oh my, to see you with that spy

You lied, but I know cause I’ve got cigarette eyes

So you’ve got yourself a bright young girl

One who lies with you in bed

When she tells you that she likes the weather

Don’t believe a word that she says no more

Out in the country I’m sure no one could tell

You held a victim under your spell

So go hide, well go hide

But I’ve got cigarette eyes

I feel uneasy, I think of you less

My mind is so restless and I’m feeling depressed

Oh my, oh my, to see you with that spy

You lied, but I know cause I’ve got cigarette eyes

Matt Costa Astair

Astair your glare is killing me

Astair in skies of blue

The signs you wear are making me

So confused

But the mountains and the trees

Are they just what you need

Or are they less than what

You’d expect to see

And if you’re leaving well come

Give me reason why I let you down

Before you turn around now now

Before you turn around

Astair you’re there and I’m still here

I swear I’m so confused

The signs you wear are making me

Feel like I’m the one to lose

But the canyons and the seas

Are they just what you need

Or are they less than what

You’d expect to see

And if you’re leaving well come

Give me reason why I let you down

Before you turn around now, now

Before you turn around

But the mountains and the trees

Are they what you perceive

Or are they less than what

You’d expect to see

And if you’re leaving well come

Give me reason why I let you down

Before you turn around now, now

Before you turn around

Matt Costa Can You Tell Me

Can you tell me what I need to know

To paint a picture like Picasso?

Can you give me the tool that’s right

And make a masterpiece of my life?

Make one simple and make one grand

One Michelangelo and one Cezanne

Frame the strangeness inside your mind

Open the curtains, open them wide

Chaos will turn into grace, brush my eyes

With colors shapes and lines changing frame of mind

So can you tell me what I need to know

To paint a picture like Picasso?

Can you give me the tool that’s right

And make a masterpiece of my life?

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

That’s what I need

Can you tell me

Can you tell me

Can you tell me

That’s what I need

Can you tell me

Can you tell me

Can you tell me

That’s what I need
