19 Years 03:27
19 Years © 2007 Ernest Benoit It was 19 years ago today An old friend was taken away Well I gutted my way through so much pain Now I'm doin ok Now there's been a few more since then I've lost track of how and when With every life There is death And that's just the way it is my friend Though some remnants still remain.. Some scars won't go away But my whiskey, eases the way And a Woman and Child's smiling face.. 19 years have come and gone Since the day things went all wrong 19 years, so far gone I'm still standing here, I'm standing strong After 19 years After 19 years... Was a time I'd think I'd be one of them Just another name you'd rememeber when.. Another face.. another friend But then you came along, and now here I am After 19 years... After 19 years... 19 years have come and gone Since the day things went all wrong 19 years, so far gone I'm still standing here, I'm standing strong After 19 years... It's been 19 years

Drinkin’ Game © 2011 Ernest Benoit Let's play a game called 'whiskey vs gin' Roll the dice and see what kind of mood I am in Gin makes me happy, whiskey makes me sin It's a fun little game called 'whiskey vs gin' Whiskey vs Gin Who's gonna win? Either way I lose Now where do we begin? Whiskey vs gin I can't lie down I've got the spins It’s a fun little game ….called 'whiskey vs gin' Sometimes I drink to kill the pain, Sometimes I drink to forget But I wake up in the morning With the same old thoughts, the same memories, The same problems, a nice headache… And some brand new regrets Let’s play a game called 'whiskey vs gin' Roll the dice and see what kind of mood I am in.. Whiskey makes me trouble.. gin makes me grin It’s a fun little game called 'whiskey vs. gin' Whiskey vs. Gin Can't believe the shame I'm in A straight shot to the bottom Here I go again Whiskey vs Gin This constant pain I'm living in It’s time to start a brand new game… A game that I can win

Dying Day 04:26
Dying Day © 2010 Ernest Benoit Well I'm a-rollin down this highway And I'm a-doin bout a buck and some change I see them red and blue lights behind me And I ain't feelin any pain I could end this all so easy Make this whole mess go away Just a-slow it on down, pull off to the side They could put me away to stay Too damn easy.. Well I aint in the mood for easy Rather make them earn their pay Why should I make it easy for these mutherfuckers When you know I can't expect the same Besides where's the fun in that? Well I can feel the end a comin So you best stay out of my way Cause I aint ever gonna stop running Till I've reached my dying day Gonna meet my dyin day Gonna see my dyin day Gonna be my dyin day

Galavantin' and Carousin' © 2011 Ernest Benoit Round the corner down Suffolk St Theres a place we like to go The balls are hot and the drinks are strong Gonna make a few friends I know Find a nice little spot on the patio block To just sip and gaze around In a backyard oasis With the stars up above And tomatoes growin’ in the ground With some crazy chicks Looking for trouble… Out carousin' on a Friday Night Crazy chicks Nothin but trouble Out carousin On a Friday Night Galavantin and carousin Got all we need In this dark little corner And there aint no sorrows to down Just chill and relax to that song in my head I love the way that jukebox sounds Well set em up Frank cuz I’m just about ready Think I'll have myself another round Got a band settin up, gonna play some rockabilly And I’m pretty sure it’s gonna get loud Chorus: With these crazy chicks Down for trouble Out carousin' on a Friday Night Crazy chicks They're nothin but trouble Out carousin On a Friday Night Galavantin and carousin

The Happy Song © 2007 Ernest Benoit Flowers and puppies and butterflies Puffy clouds in the sunny sky They said that it couldn't be done But I have proven them all wrong Cause I have written a happy song Booze and cars and naked ladies Everything that a growing boy needs Keep it straight Keep it in line Cause some mistakes last a whole life-time And I'd hate to see it all go wrong Cause that would ruin my happy song Flowers and puppies and butterflies The glitter of love in a child’s eye Moments will come and soon will be gone But those dark thoughts I’ll not dwell upon Instead remember these words in my happy song Flowers and puppies and butterflies Flowers and puppies and butterflies Flowers and puppies and butterflies Puffy clouds in the sunny sky They said it couldn't be done But I have proven them all wrong Cause I just wrote A happy song

Liar Liar 03:32
Liar Liar © 2007 Ernest Benoit Well I used to drown my sorrows in whiskey.. But the more I drank The worse things became So pour another shot o' that Tennessee whiskey... Pretty soon old Satan, he'll be calling out your name You know that bottle looks awful tempting Old Satan really knows how to play this game So pour another shot of that Tennessee whiskey Wanna hear what old Satan has to say Now the Devil comes around when you're at your weakest And he'll do his best to lead you astray.. So pour another shot of that Tennessee whiskey.. Cause I heard it all before, now just go away Go away!

One More Minute © 2009 Ernest Benoit Wake up every morning to your lovely face The alarm clock's ringin' in my head I need just one more minute in this warm embrace 'Cause I'm not ready to leave you yet... 'I need just one more minute', is what I said I know I've been around a little while I like to think I've seen a thing or two But you know I'm only 45 And I've got a lot more livin' left to do! I'm gonna spend every minute that I can, here with you... These kids are getting big right before our eyes I wanna savor each day cause they are flyin' by Wanna watch them grow up And I know you do too But oh please make it slow down These days are precious few Growin up and movin on Again just me and you I need just one more minute before these childhood days are through I know I've been around a little while I like to think I've seen a thing or two But you know I'm only 45 And I've got a lot more livin' left to do! I'm gonna spend every minute that I can, here with you... There's a day out there, off in the distance The day our time on Earth is through And when it comes I'll look into your eyes And ask for 'one more minute' here with you I'll ask for one more minute ..here with you.. I'll pray for one more minute ..here with you.. I need just one more minute ..here with you..

Perfect Man 03:17
Perfect Man © 2009 Ernest Benoit I'm not a perfect man Wanna know what I am? Just read the list of faults a mile wide And you'll start to understand.. I'm angry and mean This nice-guy facade is paper thin, I got a patience level of zero When you get under my skin I'm far from perfect, man I'm not a perfect man No! I make a little bit of progress Then revert to square one As I hurt the ones I love And wreck the good that I've done Now do you understand? I'm not a perfect man But one of these days This vicious cycle I'll break Cause I'm gonna keep on working Do what ever it takes To earn your trust again And be your Perfect Man You know you're my best friend I'll be your Perfect Man

Second Hand Story © 2011 Ernest Benoit This aint nothing new We've all been there before Led along to find Not what I was looking for The things you say they fit just like a puzzle piece Until you've reached the end and find the truth, the missing key Told a tale of your adventure and glory Turns out it's just a second hand story... Embellished and enhanced this truth you put before me Turns out it's just a second hand story... Break the seal and I dive right on in Just to find a pile of empty nothing once again You're leading me around But I can see the cliff ahead See through the lies, leave you behind, before I'm left for dead Told a tale of your adventure and glory Turns out it's just a second hand story... Perfected and enhanced this truth you put before me Turns out it's just a second hand story... Your reality it seemed to be so real Didn't give a shit about another living thing's ordeal Say whatever, make your plans come to be Your fucked up world, I brush you off, now get the hell away from me Brush you off, dust you off, now have no more affect on me Told a tale of your adventure and glory Turns out it's just a second hand story... Perfected and enhanced this truth you put before me Turns out it's just a second hand story... Told a tale of your adventure and glory Ain't nothin but a second hand story... Infected and enhanced this truth you put before me Turns out it's just a second hand story...

TV Zombies 02:32
TV Zombies © 2010 Ernest Benoit They sit and stare At a screen all day Try to get a response They got nothin to say Their eyes are all glassy As the drool creeps down their chin They are TV Zombies Let the horror begin Whoa whoa they're zombified! Whoa whoa they're TV Zombified! Staring at that screen they are in their own world It makes no difference if it's a boy or a girl It's hypnotizing power has them mesmerized Doesn't matter what is on They are TV Zombified Whoa whoa they're zombified! Whoa whoa they're TV Zombified! It's a twisted piece of irony TV's eating their brains Pupils dilated And eyes all a-glaze Staring and staring At the pixels flying by They can't look away They are TV Zombified! Whoa whoa they're zombified! Whoa whoa they're TV Zombified! Whoa whoa they're zombified! Whoa whoa they're TV Zombified!
