Nick Santino Miss Virginia

Miss Virginia, I need you here

cause I’m alone now and the coast ain’t clear

and I spend my last few dimes on the call I never made

Miss Virginia can you help me run away?

Oh Carolina, I hear your voice

through the mountains, the softest noise

and I smell your sweet perfume through the wind and through the trees

Carolina can you help me find peace?

and when I finally know what it is I’m looking for

and the sand runs out and I’m alone

I hope you find your way through the fire and through the rain

I’ll be there waiting there for you every day

until the storm clouds disappear and show your face

Massachusetts, you got so cold

help me forget the lies I’ve told

and I finally found the one who I’ll cherish everyday

Massachusetts can you make me feel okay?

and when I finally know what it is I’m looking for

and the sand runs out and I’m alone

I hope you find your way through the fire and the rain

I’ll be there waiting there for you every day

until the storm clouds disappear and show your face

Miss Virginia, how ya been?

I’m not alone now, I’m far from it

and spend my last few dimes on a big old diamond ring

Miss Virginia I can finally love again

And when finally I know what it is I’m looking for

and the sand runs out and I’m alone

I hope you find your way through the fire and through the rain

I’ll be waiting there for you every day

until the storm clouds disappear and show your face

Oh I’ll be waiting for ya, every day

Nick Santino Have A Little Faith In Me

Catching my breath

Biting my tongue

I’ve been waiting here all night

I say your word

And you listen close

Hoping that it comes out right

You got what I want

You got what I need

So have a little faith in me

Oh have a little faith in me

You got what I want

And that’s all that I need

So have a little faith in me

Oh have a little faith in me

I’ve waited my turn

I stood there for days

Hoping you would come outside

Hoping I could make you stay

But I looked away

And I saw your heart break

From all of my mistakes

That I made

You got what I want

You got what I need

So have a little faith in me

Oh have a little faith in me

You got what I want

And that’s all that I need

So have a little faith in me

Oh have a little faith in me

And it’s taking me this long

To figure it out

And it’s taking me this long

But I think that I’ve got it now

Sometimes you need know

How far you fall

Cause when you open up your eyes

You see that you’ve lost it all

You got what I want

You got what I need

So have a little faith in me

Oh have a little faith in me

You got what I want

And that’s all that I need

So have a little faith in me

Oh have a little faith in me

Nick Santino It’s Alright

Hell oh my only friend, it’s good to hear your voice again

Did the wind bring you home, did you go back all alone?

I haven’t been back there since the weather caught me unprepared

did you plan to stay awhile? Cause I’d fly back to see that smile

and when you’re all alone and I’m miles away

it’s alright if you call me

and if you’re tired and you can’t sleep, and its late in Tennessee

it’s alright if you call me

it’s alright if you call me

I miss the way you look at me when you’re eyes are half asleep

and then you drift somewhere, nodding off on a kitchen chair

I lift you up and carry you upstairs like lovers on a honeymoon

And we’re awake, we’ll both go our separate ways

When you’re all alone and I’m miles away

its alright if you call me

And if you’re tired and you can’t sleep, and its late in tennessee

it’s alright if you call me

it’s alright if you call me

I know someday I’ll hold your hand

cause you got a way and I gotta plan

and I’ve been waiting for the right time babe

Tonight is the night we get way,

tonight is the night we get away

When you’re all alone and I’m miles away

it’s alright if you call me

And if you’re tired and you can sleep and its late in Tennessee

it’s alright if you call me

it’s alright if you call me

it’s alright if you call me

Nick Santino Gone Like Yesterday

I used to have dreams

As big as my head

A house in the woods or a loft in Madrid

London or Paris

South Caroline

I used to have dreams when I thought you were mine

I used to have friends

I called them a lot

We used to go out

We used to take shots

But now I’m alone so I stay inside

With a bottle of red and a bottle of white

Remember when we used to talk bout running away

Buy all new clothes and get brand new names

Now all these nights don’t feel the same

Cause everything is still gone like yesterday

We used to sleep late in your apartment downtown

We used to get high and never come down

We used to drink beer we used to get drunk

There were night we would sleep there were nights we wouldn’t

Remember when we used to talk bout running away

Buy all new clothes and get brand new names

Now all these nights don’t feel the same

Cause everything is still gone like yesterday

Remember when we used to talk bout running away

Buy all new clothes and get brand new names

Now all these nights don’t feel the same

Cause everything’s still gone like yesterday

Nick Santino That Old Corolla

When we were younger, we got drunk a lot

Stole our parents’ liquor and drank it in a parking lot

And we felt in those days forever young

We spent the summers in Ryan’s car

That old Corolla was the best thing he ever bought

And we felt in those days forever young

[Chorus:]

We thought everything was cool

We were stupid back then

We thought everything was ours

If only then we knew the truth

That we when get old, it gets hard

I think we’d stay forever young

Took the train to Boston and walked around all day

Without a dollar to our 14-year-old names

And we felt in those days forever young

[Chorus]

Smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol

And kissing girls in the back of cars

We held the summer sun just like a water gun

And taking aim at shooting stars

When we were younger, we didn’t care as much about tomorrow

We just stood and didn’t give a fuck

‘Cause we felt in those days forever young

[Chorus]

When we were younger, we got drunk a lot

Nick Santino Sold My Soul

80 miles outside of town,

and this old vans broken down

I’m getting tired of feeling old

7 years of moving slow

I messed up along the road

from bad haircuts to lies I’ve told

the ones who knew me have all gone

the friends had have all moved on

24 years old

and I want to go home

again

I spent all the cash I had

on guitars and taxi cabs

spent a month out in L.A.

I left that town without my name

I made some friends while making rounds

we only talk if I’m in town

I wanna make my parents proud

and that keeps the flame from burning out

24 years old

and I want to go home

and I sold my soul to rock n roll

cause its the only thing I wanna know

I’ve been lied straight to the face

some say karma is to blame

What goes around has got a funny way of coming back around to stay

I can’t complain about the fame

where I’ll go or where I’ve been

just keep your dreams so outta reach

till you get used to your own feet

24 years old

and I want to go home

and I sold my soul to rock n roll

cause its the only thing I wanna know

Nick Santino Jackson Browne

Standing barefoot in the dining room

In the middle of the night

Oh it’s crazy now to think about that time

And then I told you things I wish I never said

And we slept on the floor by your bed.

I drove hours through a hurricane

so I could see your face

Oh it’s funny now to think about that day.

The sun came out when I turned up the driveway to your house

I try not to give a damn about that now.

So this is it, she looked at me and lit a cigarette.

She was standing in the doorway when she said

“You know I love you And I’ll always think about the time we danced to Jackson Browne”.

Do you remember singing “These days”

or “Jamaica say you will”?

It was karaoke Friday at the bar.

Then I drove you home,

Walked you in and kissed your head.

I wish I knew then what I know now instead.

So this is it, she looked at me and lit a cigarette.

She was standing in the doorway when she said

“You know I love you And I’ll always think about the time we danced to Jackson Browne”.

So this is it, she looked at me and lit a cigarette.

She was standing in the doorway when she said

“You know I love you, And I’ll always think about the time we danced to Jackson Browne”.

Nick Santino Madeline

I knew a girl and she had the most beautiful eyes

I’d ever seen in all my life

But I only see her face in my dreams

So when I go to sleep, she’s all I see

[Chorus:]

Oh, Madeline, you’re on my mind

I see you wherever I go

And it’s been some time but I won’t lie

I’ve missed you, my Madeline

We used to be like two birds and a tree

Then we both flew away and we never came back

But when I was gone, she was all that I wanted

Oh, my, stupid me, how could I do that?

[Chorus]

So many days have come and gone

I’m always wondering where you are

I hope I can see you sometime

It’s been so long, where have you been?

And can I see you again, my darling?

And now she’s still gone and our love has moved on

But her eyes will always be looking back at me

[Chorus]

Nick Santino I Just Wanted You To Know

Hey, I don’t think I could change

I might stay the same

But I keep breaking your heart anyway

And you are the one I don’t wanna lose

You’re the one that I could get used to

So I’m keeping my eyes on you

[Chorus:]

Let me hold you in my arms

And keep you there till the winter’s gone

Lately you’ve been on my mind

And I just need you here tonight, oh

I said I was doing fine

But we both know that’s a lie

And I keep doing that all of the time

And these days I can barely sleep

I can smell you on my sheets

And I keep wishing you were here with me

[Chorus]

And I just wanted you to know

If you ever feel alone

You can always come back home

[Chorus]

Nick Santino Rio

We used to go to Mexico

And get a motel and get high

Put a towel under the door and turn the shower on

And sleep till the sun hit our eyes

I’ll buy you a drink if you buy me one too

We talk about all of our doubts

Oh, it always seems we’re the last ones to leave

And stumble back home to your couch

[Chorus:]

I’ll buy us some plane ticket outta here

Oh, come on, girl, what’d you say?

And I’ll take you away from your worries, dear

Or your worries, they’ll take me away

And you wear my shirt and eat breakfast in bed

And I’ll take my coffee black

And I’ll put on a record but the player is broke

And it plays them a little too fast

[Chorus]

We just don’t sleep too well anymore

The dog wakes me up to go out

And when I’m not home, oh, I wish I were there

I see you wherever I go

Oh, I see you wherever I go

[Chorus]
