Another Night in Nashville
by
Dom Wier

Rugged face cowboy hat came here in 78′
Wanders down Broadway with an old guitar case
Give a dollar and he’ll play songs and dreams from days gone by
He still gets high, sleeps outside on a hill
It’s just another night in Nashville

Katrina forced her from New Orleans to the Cumberland
She played songs in midtown clubs about losing all that she had
Her song went to number 10 then the flood came and took everything again
She keeps writing and fighting still
It’s just another night in Nashville

Chorus
When the sun fades outta site, don’t you know we’re still alive
Singing loud and proud in the Tennessee Hills
It’s just another night in Nashville

They let you smoke in the bars I play
I can smell that addiction on me for two days straight
But that’s okay cause’ it reminds me of the life I love
You know I always will
It’s just another night in Nashville

Repeat Chorus

They pluck the last string, last call
Last chance to make it with the one you think you want
As the lights go down in the city, there’s lovers looking for a thrill
And dreamers dreaming still
It’s just another night in Nashville

 

Oceola
By
Dom Wier

She had her first kiss while “The Joker” played
Summer of 98′
She was 15 going on 21
Couldn’t hardly wait
To be crazy in love
She just couldn’t get enough

Chorus 1
Oh in Oceola
Growing up way too fast

She got caught up quick
With a roughneck boy so full of hate
When she was six months along
He was knocking her around leaving bruises on her face
She bought a gun
but didn’t tell anyone

Chorus 2
Oh in Oceola
Growing up way too fast
Oh in Oceola
Tattoos, lit cigarettes

He came home wasted and
threw her down on the bed
She put a bullet in his head
She got off on self defense

Chorus 3
Oh in Oceola
She ain’t never looking back
Oh in Oceola
Tattoos, no regrets
Oceola
Oceola

 

Run To The Dark
by
Dom Wier

Not so long ago, you were mine, I was yours
We’d pull off the backroads, kiss and talk for hours
Meant to last but you’re in my past
Someone please riddle me that

Chorus
Cause’ In my mind I’m right there
Where you’re lying in my arms
But it all starts fading fast
When I come to in the morning
And I wake up without you, it takes some getting used to
So I run to the dark

Listen, some heartbreaks never let you go
Next thing you know you’re a downtrodden foe of
Looking for the good in life
Another sad statistical cliche’ type

2nd Chorus
In my mind I’m right there
Where you’re lying in my arms
But it all starts fading fast
When I come to in the morning
And I wake up without you, it takes some getting used to
So I run to the dark again

Bridge
It’s hard to make it through the light of day
So I run to the only place you are, ohh

Repeat chorus
In my mind I’m right there
Where you’re lying in my arms
But it all starts fading fast
When I come to in the morning
And I wake up without you, it takes some getting used to
So I run to the dark
I run to the dark

 

Worth It
by Dom Wier

So you’ve never known what love is like
You thought you felt it maybe one time
When you were seventeen with an open
But surely to be broken heart

The one you fantasize about
Got married three years ago
House, kids, suburban life
The truth hurts sometimes but that’s just life
That’s just life, that’s just life
ooh ooh

Chorus

Do you kiss like you mean it
Do you love like you need it more than the air you breathe
Do you need me, am I worth it to you baby
Are we worth it, is it worth it

Never thought this would be your life
Starting over at the age of twenty nine
Estranged lovers and a broke down soul
Back in your hometown with nowhere else to go

Hope of a new day dawns
You open the shades to take the world on
And just maybe today the one will come along
You’ll take a gamble and go on and on
ooh ooh

Chorus
Do you kiss like you mean it
Do you love like you need it more than the air you breathe
Do you need me, am I worth it to you baby
Are we worth it, is it worth it

 

Wrong
by
Dom Wier

Got some memories I wanna stuff in a sack
Douse in gas, light a match, watch em’ burn burn into ash
And there’s some I’ve missed that I wish I had so bad
Blackout nights you can never get back, you never get em’ back

It’s a typical symptom of the human condition
We go through this life wishing for all the things we just can’t have

Chorus
Don’t really know where I’m going
I’m just making it up as I go along
Maybe I’m wrong, wrong, wrong
Maybe I’m wrong

No matter if you grow up in the city or in the sticks
We’re all dealt a hand so we deal with it
Sometimes it sucks, sometimes it’s cruel
There’s no rhyme of reason for what some go through
When you’re counting on nothing, it’s hard to find
Something worth fighting for,
So we lead our lives in quiet desperation
When we could be doing so much more

Repeat Chorus

We’ve all been hurt, we’ve all been used
All got scars, all been accused
It’s a never ending game of trying to make a name
But then again who’s to say,
maybe you know something that I don’t
Maybe I’m wrong

Chorus

You Already Know
By
Dom Wier

It was a blistering hot summer
When we said our last goodbyes
I know we both still wonder
Why we couldn’t compromise
Our hearts went in different directions
But you’re still a part of me

Chorus
You got pictures, love letters
And songs I wrote just for you
And I said I’d say I do
I don’t have to show you
How far for you I would go
You already know

You got some kinda nerve to ask me
If I ever think of you
How could you put it past me
You know I know you know I do
The invitation is always on the table
If you’re willing I’m right here

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
As you wind through the path
This life leads you
Don’t you even try to act
Like I don’t think the world of you
I do

 

Medicine
by Dom Wier

I know you wanna stay
But that’s not how this works
So please collect your things
And be on your way

All those times you left me for him
Now you’re standing here drunk at 3 a.m.
Here’s one thing that’s the God’s honest truth
Last night was the last time, it’s goodbye to you

Chorus

You did it to me again and again and again and again
You did it to me again and again and again and again
So here’s a taste of your own medicine

It’s cold at six a.m.
Your heart feels like the frost on the windshield
You just drive through Illinois, feelin’ the way you made me feel
All I gotta say is “it hurts baby, don’t it” oh

Chorus
Break
Chorus

 

Learnin’ How To Love
By Dom Wier

Situational love can burn down bridges I know
So let’s be completely honest
And do what’s best for us both
Cause’ I’ve been through this one too many times
I guess I’ll go on and leave now goodbye
Goodbye

A strong dose of reality hits me each morning
My mind is racked with thoughts of all the things
that I’ve lost, like my innocence
But lately I’ve been doin’ pretty good
Just givin’ out love to everyone
Like a good man should

Chorus

And I, yes I
I’m learnin’ how to love
And I, yes I
Get my strength from somewhere up above

Bridge

Don’t you know when things go wrong
All you gotta do is sing your song just sing your song
And it’s a crazy crazy mixed up world we’re livin’ in
But I’m slowly learning, love conquers all

Repeat Chorus
