CARROT AND A STICK 

BY NELSON OLSTROM

VERSE 1

One says red one says blue

one says the other doesn’t have a clue

I used to think of you as my friend

It’s getting so hard to pretend


CHORUS

Carrot and a stick, blood and bone

See  it my way or you see it all wrong X2


VERSE 2

Don’t take my gun cause it’s my right

I gotta have it for the bump in the night

Tell me what you think, I don’t disagree

What you’re seeing I don’t see

 

CHORUS

Carrot and a stick, blood and bone

See it my way or you see it all wrong X2


BRIDGE !

Everything is simple till you pass it all around

You think you’ve got it right but you said it out loud

Nobody wants to listen, everybody’s wants to win                    

You think you made your point, well you better think again


VERSE 3

I don’t know what were ever gonna do

Everybody’s got a different point of view

Some say Jesus is the only way

 We’ll all find out come judgement day


CHORUS

Carrot and a stick, blood and bone  

 See it my way or you see it all wrong X2


BRIDGE 2

Text !      Tweet !            Sharpen your claws !

Pushing those buttons like the wizards of OZ

Put it out there for everyone to see               

Screaming and crying “It’s all about me”


VERSE 4

I don’t know how we got this far apart

Every single day takes a chunk of my heart

Can we figure this out before were dead and gone

Before our names etched in stone


CHORUS

Carrot and a stick, blood and bone

See it my way or you see it all wrong X3

MAYBE THIS TIME

BY NELSON OLSTROM



Verse 1

She picked herself up off the floor

Said I’m sorry” I won’t do it no more”

And she cried “I won’t do it no more “

And she cried “I won’t do it no more”


Her friends all say “he’s no good”

Mama said she understood

He’s a good man just has his moods

He’s a good man just has his moods

                   

                  Chorus:

Maybe this time everything will change 

Maybe this time won’t be the same

Maybe this time     Maybe this time


Maybe this time won’t be the same

Maybe this time everything will change 

Maybe this time     Maybe this time


Verse 2: 

He said I’m sorry that I caused you pain

He said I’m sorry, won’t happen again

And he cried “I won’t do it no more “

And he cried “I won’t do it no more”


When you say those things to me

It’s so hard to just let it be

I’m a good man,  just have my moods

I’m a good man, I just have my moods


                   Chorus:

Maybe this time everything will change 

Maybe this time won’t be the same

Maybe this time     Maybe this time


Maybe this time won’t be the same

Maybe this time everything will change 

Maybe this time     Maybe this time


                   Chorus:

Maybe this time everything will change 

Maybe this time won’t be the same

Maybe this time     Maybe this time


Maybe this time won’t be the same

Maybe this time everything will change 

Maybe this time     Maybe this time


Verse 3:

She left a note  kept her cool

Said I’ll be damned if I’ll be your fool

And she cried I won’t do it no more

She sighed I won’t do it no more


He found the note    her wedding band

 Said I just don’t understand

I’m a good man,  just have my moods

I’m a good man, I just have my moods



 Chorus:

Maybe this time everything will change 

Maybe this time won’t be the same

Maybe this time     Maybe this time


Maybe this time won’t be the same

Maybe this time everything will change 

Maybe this time     Maybe this time
