    Lover from Last Summer

    Lover From Last Summer        Beth Wimmer c2005

     

    Chorus

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me this spring

    you're the one who said last summer that it didn't mean a thing

     

    V1

    well i wanted something more with you

    you said it was only physical

    purely recreational

    now you're knockin' at my door

     

    Chorus

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me this spring

    you're the one who said last summer that it was only a fling

     

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me today

    don't try messin' with my mind with all the charming words you say

     

    V2

    well i had a little fun with you

    now i'm happy to be done

    i need more feeling in my man

    one who's doing all he can 

    (not last year's lover)

     

    guitar solo/break-down

     

    Chorus

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me this spring

    you're the one who said last summer that it was only a fling

     

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me today

    don't try messin' with my heart with all that charming crap you say

     

    you're my lover from last summer and you weren't even that nice

    i guess you never had it this good and so now you're thinkin' twice

     

    you're my lover from last summer and you weren't even that good

    you should fade into my history just like last summer should!

     

    you're gonna fade into my history just like last summer should

    you will fade into my history just like last summer should!

    Self Righteous Son-of-a-Bitch   -    Beth Wimmer c2005

     

    V1

    well i tried to be your friend i tried to help you til the end

    but you're a self-righteous son-of-a-bitch

    thought maybe we could just have sex once in a while we'd reconnect but you're a self-righteous son-of-a-bitch

     

    B

    i don't hear from you for weeks, then you call me up real sweet 

    and talk me into hookin' up, cause you need to use my stuff

    self-serving, non-deserving....

     

    V2 

    i don't mean to diss your mama, i'm sure she did the best she could

    but you're a self-righteous son-of-a-bitch

    well it's true you're very smart, got lots of head but got no heart

    you're a self-righteous son-of-a-bitch

     

    B

    well you call me on the phone, invite me over to your home

    then don't offer me a drink and talk all night like i'm your shrink

     

    Chorus

    well you're a self-centered, inconsiderate, immature, manipulative,

    self-serving, non-deserving...

     

    B

    well it's time to cut my loss cause i finally see the cost

    of spending all my precious time, you won't even spend a dime

    then you're pickin' on my friends, but sit beside me and pretend

    that you treat me with respect while you're kissin' on my neck

     

    Chorus

    well you're a self-centered, inconsiderate, immature, manipulative,

    selfish lover, egotistical, narcisistic, opinionated, self-serving, non-deserving, yellow-bellied, egg-suckin, double-standard, hypocritical, lying, cheating, reckless, deceiving...

    Weather

    Weather    -   Words and Music by beth wimmer c2004

     

    When the wind blows like this it makes me think of you, we made weather baby

    When the wind blows like this I only think of you, we made weather baby

    Rain comin’ down all day, I drift and dream of you, we made weather baby

    Rain comin’ down on me, leaves me wet and blue, we made weather Love

     

    And when the night falls into day, here in my bed the video plays

    the reel in my mind of the storm every time you stayed

     

    Snow falling peaceful and pure, feels like I’m in your arms, we made weather baby

    but snow makes what’s so obscure, you took away your arms, we made weather baby

    Rain soaks the earth all night, I drift and dream of you, we made weather baby

    we made weather Love

    You soaked me up all right, left me dry and nude, we made weather baby

     

    And when the night falls into day, I wake and I swear I see your face

    A smile on your lips on my skin and we’re makin’ weather again

     

    When the wind blows like this it makes me think of you

    Nobody knows my kiss the way you do

    Rain comin’ down all day, I drift and dream of you

    Rain comin’ down on me, leaves me wet and blue

    We made weather baby

    We made weather baby

    We made weather baby

    We made weather Love

    Break My Heart

    Break My Heart   -   Beth Wimmer c2001

     

     i’ve seen you, and i see you notice me too

    you won’t be mine, but that’s fine, one night will do

    i been burned, and i’ve learned i don’t heal easily

    but i need some new seed to set my spirits free

     

    please break my heart, break my heart again

    break my heart again

     

    i hurt so bad, it’s time i had someone change my mind

    you’re not him, but in the dim light i know you’ll do fine

    be my guest, i’m too stressed to feel it anymore

    take me now and somehow help me close the door

     

    please break my heart, break my heart again

    break my heart again

     

    and with each kiss, i know this will take me from this place

    and this new ache just might make me forget i know his face

    be my guest, i’m too stressed to feel it anymore

    break my heart, it can’t hurt worse than it did before

    i hurt so bad it’s time i had a new man Loving me

    you’re not him, but in the dim light i can’t really see

     

    please break my heart, break my heart again

    break my heart, break my heart again
