Tim Cofield Lyrics

Spread Your Wings

Single (2016)

Small boy from a little village
Only see wrong or right
In a world where there is no gray
Everyone see black and white

One day he saw the colour
The flash of a heron's wings
Everything changed for small boy
His heart began to sing

Spread your wings and fly
Spread your wings and fly

I lost some friends along the way
Because we did not worship in the same place in the same way
Beliefs they sometimes unify us
But most of the time they just divide us

Spread your wings and fly
Spread your wings and fly

I wish I could find a way back to their graces
I wish they looked at me with those same smiling faces
But I see the world through different eyes
That doesn’t mean I minimize what you hold sacred
I do not minimize what you hold sacred

Spread your wings and fly
Spread your wings and fly

Still I miss the open invite I had
You were proud of me once
Now I’m just an apple gone bad
That’s not the case I swear that’s not the case
I’m just setting the world on fire
Spreading my wings and flying higher

Spread your wings and fly
Spread your wings and fly


Song: ESKIMO MARY (LAKE AND FRANCE)

Album: Eskimo Mary EP (2009)

On the corner of Lake and France / I caught a glance of Eskimo Mary
In mukluks and a parka she had made / And long dark hair in two long braids She said
"If thou art heavy laden / leave your cares behind
Don't worry about tomorrow / The water was turned to wine"

We can stay warm tonight / by the light of the fire
All your cares cast aside / She will provide

That evening over hot black tea / Her words were "Thou hast been redeemed"
And just as one man brought death to all of us / How much more has my son renewed us
And like a kiss she told me "you're forgiven" / I felt joy / I felt alive / I felt like living

We can stay warm tonight by the light of the fire
All our wrongs were made right just in time

But we walk and we run and we drive our sled / across the cold, rugged earth exotic
Hoping we are good enough Hoping we make the cut / After the frozen judge aquatic
But nothing really grows on the mountain top / I like the view and thats what it's got
But in the valley I find redemption / I find the meaning of true salvation

We can stay warm tonight and forever by the light of a thousand fires
All our wrongs were made right / just in time yea just in time
We can stay warm tonight by the light of the fire


Song: WHOA BABY SONG

Album: Eskimo Mary EP (2009)

Whoa I still love you baby
Whoa I still love you
Whoa I still love you baby

I went outside just to say goodbye / but you were already gone
I went to fly up to see you baby / but you did not want me to come
And now I'm here to say / I'm still in love with you baby

Whoa I still love you baby
Whoa I still love you
Whoa I still love you baby

How can a man make a woman love him / if she don't feel it down low
How can a man right the wrong he did her / if she won't let it go
And I'm out of blood / but I keep on bleeding
I'm out of prayers / But I just keep praying
Hoping to that the lord my send her back my way someday
Cause I still love you baby

Whoa I still love you baby
Whoa I still love you
Whoa I still love you baby

Song: SONG FOR A BRAVE GIRL

Album: Eskimo Mary EP (2009)

The first time that you held your babe
You never knew love like you knew it that day
And In your arms you cradled the one
Who would have your life from that day on

So scared of being alone
So afraid of being on your own
And it crossed my mind that you might not even know

He loves you so much / yea he's crazy about you
If you could see him smile / you would see what I see / it's so true
When you're holding your little one / He is holding you

And most of us don't even know
Raising a child can be a job on its own
And God is smiling down on the treasure he's found
Cause you're his gift, you're his flowering rose

So brave, so strong
Like the sun rising up at dawn
And you've crossed his mind more times then you'll ever know

He loves you so much / yea he's crazy about you
If you could see him smile / you would see what I see / it's so true
When you're holding your little one / He is holding you

When you're holding your little one he is holding
On to your little one he is holding
Close to your little one / He is holding you


Song: EMPTY

Album: Eskimo Mary EP (2009)

I found the crossroads that you were on
I pushed my car there cause my fuel tank was on
e. m. p. t. y. / I be running on empty

I found the intersection that you was at
My bike was hijacked like the price of gas
Now she's shopping for new set of wheels
How she feels when she's running on empty

Oh oh I be running on
Oh oh I be running on
Oh oh I be running on empty

You left me stranded out on the rocks
Stole my kisses left me heart on blocks
You called it love called it love called it love
You called it love

Oh oh I be running on
Oh oh I be running on
Oh oh I be running on empty

And she knows what she does
It's the feeling she loves
And she hopes that one day
That she'll finally say
That I settled for a man who holds his heart in his hand
And he loves me and I won't be
running on running on running
running on running on running on empty
running on running on running
running on running on running on empty


Song: EVERYTHING CAN CHANGE IN JUST ONE NIGHT

Album: Eskimo Mary EP (2009)

download MP3 | watch video

Hey Anna this is so you won't forget
That story of how we met
You were looking so good in that dress
And I liked your voice

Ol' Sandy remembered the message well
I played shy / Tell me could you tell?
When you walked right up / and you told me your name

All the boys and all the girls
Move their lips but I don't hear a word
Cause all I see is a pretty girl / looking at me

You got me all worked up
You got me all figured out
I bet it's snowing in New York City
But in Tennessee it's nice and sunny
So give me one last kiss
Before you say goodbye
And it's fine / Cause everything can change in just one night

You were home for Christmas time and
I was all alone for some peace of mine
I don't make a habit of drinking alone
But sometimes that's what it takes to find someone like you
Someone like you / Someone like you / Someone like you

You got me all worked up
You got me all figured out
I bet it's snowing in New York City
But in Tennessee it's nice and sunny
So give me one last kiss
Before you say goodbye
And it's fine / Cause everything can change in just one night

Take me one more / Take me one more time tonight
I want to feel it all again
The first time you touched my hand it felt electric
But I've seen the sun go down so many times
I want to feel it rise again
If everything can change in just one night that way
I want to know I stand a chance
When this gets old / When the magic goes away
It's always too good to last / It's always to sweet to last
Everything can change in just…

You got me all worked up
You got me all figured out
So give me one last kiss
Before you say goodbye
You got me all worked up
You got me all figured out
So give me one last kiss
Before you say goodbye
Before you say goodbye
Before you say goodbye
Cause everything can change in just one night


Song: TOO CLOSE

Album: Eskimo Mary EP (2009)

Now your voice is so cold
But you gave me some hope
That night when you called me
Girl, you don't even know
i sat down and cried / when we said goodbye
cause i thought you had gave up / i thought to you i had died
But you showed me you care still
And that means the world, girl
You call me but i'm still not coming up there

But then i hear our song / and i start to sing
Then i remember / the way that you looked at me
Yea you're miles from Tennessee / but you're still too close for me

Whoa / You're too close for me
Whoa / You're too close for me
Whoa / You're too close for me
I think you might be / what i really need
but you're too close / to let go easy

I can't make you come home
I can't make you know
That I singing my strongest when I say that
I won't have no one else cause I had you once
And once is enough to know there's nobody else

There's no one else
You're the perfect picture
There is no one else
I want in this town / or anywhere else
Whoa / You're too close for me
Whoa / You're too close for me
Whoa / You're too close for me
I think you might be / what i really need
but you're too close / to let go easy


Song: STARS AND THEIR COURSES

Album: Stethoscope EP (2006)

When the sun goes down And the stars come out
I feel all right I feel right / When I think about why they shine

When the sun goes down And the stars come out
I feel all right I feel right / When I think about why they shine

How long have we we been spinning / What star could blink in the beginning
Who's mind could even fathom why they shine

I took a road trip with a friend / It was time yea it had been way to long
Since I've seen the stars without city light
My native sister and brother have been
Counting the stars The earth was their friend / but so long
To the the Great Communion / We all need someone

When the sun goes down And the stars come out
I feel all right I feel right / When I think about why they shine

Stars and their courses / centrifugal forces / Come on my Horse is waiting out back
Let's ride / Ride until the sky turns black / Let's sleep under the stars
Maybe we'll remember who we are and what we're fighting for
The stars and their courses / Limousines and their Porsches
That's not exactly what I mean
But sometimes the lines say more in between


Song: STRIKE A MATCH

Album: Stethoscope EP (2006)

Something about being all alone In a house with no one home
Makes my heart beat rapidly Thinking I see things I don't see
I've got to occupy my mind somehow Forget the creepy feeling
Like someone is upstairs Can you hear their footsteps on the ceiling

Whoa, fear not for I am with you
Whoa, fear not for I am with you

Your mind will go so far It seems the more you know
The better it can scare you If you entertain the thought
So when you feel afraid Close your eyes and pray
Cause fear is not from Him listen to Him say...

Whoa, fear not for I am with you
Whoa, fear not for I am with you

The darkness is what's left when the light is taken from us
So flick your lighter on strike a match above us
Darkness is what's left when light is taken from us
So flick your lighter on strike a match above us

Whoa, fear not for I am with you
Whoa, fear not for I am with you


Song: LIFE IS A BREEZE

Album: Stethoscope EP (2006)

Life is a river leading us to the ocean
Life is nerve guiding us to a notion
There's no magic there's no secret potion
Just live your life and set love in motion

Life is a knot tie it with devotion
Life is song sing it with emotion
Life is communion / Life is the three in one
A subtle breeze so blow it before it's done

Life's a hurricane on an open sea
Life's handshake with a rare disease
Sometimes it brings me pleasure
Sometimes it brings me to my knees but
It's gone like the wind
Life is a breeze

Life is a heartbeat listen to the unborn
Life is a jacket bought but never worn
Life is everything we almost lost
Life is what we found...

This is not getting better / This all feels the same
I should have took your hand that night in the rain
And I can't help but wonder where we'd be / If we stayed together

This is not getting better / This all feels the same
I should have took your hand that night in the rain
And I can't help but wonder where we'd be / If we had not been swept away

Go on and live now / Go on and hurt now / Go on and laugh out loud
And then you'll see
Life is a breeze
Go on and live now / Go on and hurt now / Go on and laugh out loud
And then you'll see
Life is a breeze


Song: MUSCADINES

Album: Stethoscope EP (2006)

What ever it is
What ever it comes to
What ever it has
As long as I have you
What ever it brings you
I will be right beside you
Whatever Oh whatever

Where ever it goes
I'll go there with you
What ever it knows
I hope you'll always know that I
I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

Until the muscadines turn to jelly by themselves
You will be well loved
I've got a picture in the pocket of my heart and
it looks a lot like you

So dream a little brighter
Watch the autumn leaves fall for whatever it is
Dream a little brighter
Dream of autumn leaves falling
for whatever it is

Whatever it is just tell me
Whatever it is can you help me
Whatever it is oh whatever
I will see you through whatever it is
