The Stories

Raincoats
written by Scott Gray

V1.  I walked into my house from a rainy day
And almost slipped out of my Burberry raincoat
When my telephone rang
It was sweet Elaine and she said,
"I'm so glad you're down the street from me, because I need you"

Chorus:  I can't deny she's worth the waiting for like sunshine
She's the one that makes me smile
And I know deep down that one day she is going to be mine
so I left my Raincoat on

V2.  I splashed through a couple of puddles on my way
I scaled up her steps in time just to hear her say
That she was running out the door
To meet a date, but her Christian Dior
Couldn't zip by itself and so I helped her

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:  Did she feel that shiver
As I slid my finger from the small of her back
To the nape of her neck

V3.  I walked into my house from a rainy day
Wishing I had told her just how I felt and then my doorbell rang
When I could see out the sidelight window
It was sweet Elaine; I let her in
She said, "This rain is nice" and wondered if
If I could please take a walk with her outside

Repeat Chorus


Maybe It's You
written by Scott Gray

V1.  There is something in the air tonight
I can feel it stirring in my soul
It's not the mix of Jack and neon lights
Begging me to lose control
What's begging me to lose control
Over senses I don't know
So tell me, do you own this mystery
That's breaking my player mentality

Chorus:  Cause if I didn’t notice
That dress you're wearing
How it's cut down to the sweetest view
If I wasn't haunted by your perfume
There's one logical conclusion
Maybe It's Just You

V1.  Oh baby, please
Don't believe everything you may've heard about me
Don't be fooled by my slick advances
This is more than physical attraction

Repeat Chorus 2x


She Remains
written by Scott Gray

V1.  She left Chanel 5 lingering on my skin
From an improvised rendevouz last night
She bid her goodbye in form of a single kiss
But will I see her again
I'm not one fit to be tied

Chorus:  Yet She Remains Here
Like she made herself home down in my heart
Yes, She Remains Here
And I can't get her out of my mind

V2.  She left visions of herself tangled inside of me
As I lie away til quarter-past-three
Thought I could forget her
By tuning a late night show
A fragile attempt I know
Cause she's taken hold of me

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:  Why can't I shake this feeling
She left behind
But who am I to disagree when
True love arrives
So why fight this
When She Remains in my heart

Repeat Chorus

Tag:  She left Chanel 5 lingering on my skin


Captured
written by Cherry Bilyeu & Scott Gray

V1.  But you said your love
Is deeper than oceans I'm the only one
Now I feel the tide turning
Like you're drifting far away from us

Chorus:  It's like I can tell you've been Captured
By another, but don't let this end
Before you've been Captured
By me again

V2.  You never could hide from me
Those secrets that you keep inside
And I recognize the beginning of
My reflection fading from your eyes

Chorus:  That's how I can tell you've been Captured
By another, but don't let this end
Before you've been Captured
By me again

Bridge:  First I'll dim the lights
Pour some wine
Move in closer to kiss your mouth
And later on by break of dawn
You'll be mine no doubt

Repeat Chorus


Someday
written by Scott Gray

V1.  I walk alone in autum Central Park
With people falling in love
They pass me by and they remind me
That my time is yet to come

PreChorus:  Somewhere I'll find you
Sometime Someday
Atleast that's what my friends say

Chorus:  But I've been searching for Someday
It's path to me yet to appear
And I can hardly even wait
How far is it from here

V2.  So I close my eyes
Wish on a nighttime sky
And hope that you appear
But everyday stays the same old same
As yesterday

PreChorus:  Now I've heard that good things
Will come through waiting
Well if so, then bravo for me

Repeat Chorus

PreChorus:  Somewhere I'll find you
Sometime Someday
Atleast that's what my friends say

Repeat Chorus


Games You Play
written by Scott Gray

V1.  We used to be together
Seven months and twenty days
Until she called, said we're through
And parted ways
No serenade beneath a platinum moon
No diamond stars could ever win her back
Her silhouette revealed my doom
Kissing another man

PreChorus:  But I'm the one who wants to hold her
I'm the one who really cares
Should I refuse to persue this love affair

Chorus:  'Cause liars lie, cheaters cheat, players play
Watch out
You're gonna get the same
You never know when it's your turn
There are no rules in these Games You Play
Yeah liars lie, cheaters cheat, players play
Watch out
You're gonna get the same
You never know when you'll get burned
There are no rules in these Games You Play

V2.  I'm better off without her
Face to face my best friend claimed
But now he shares that shadow on her bedroom shade
Pure animal rage inside of me
I can't believe my eyes
I've been played
Better that he not be born
Or gone to meet his make

Repeat PreChorus

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:  Now I can be the one
To bring this to an end
Tell me what am I supposed to
So let these games begin

Repeat Chorus
