At Close Range

I gave you everything I could I thought we had something good
Not just a casual fling but all you did was criticize
Like a bullet between the eyes, diplomacy was not your thing
And you know it's kind of strange to see you at close range

I thought I knew you well but secrets you could not tell
Kept me in the dark from the start and sometimes I see the death of hope
Underneath my microscope but it's just the breaking of my heart
And the truth is so insane when it's in my face at close range

We had some good times together
But those days are hard to remember
We've got too much history
Don't shoot down my dreams again,
Don't pretend you are my friend
Just leave me with my dignity

If I knew what was true I never would have been with you
The way you acted was a crime, now I'm left with this regret
There are things I can't forget like how I wasted so much time
And your words are a sad refrain when I hear them at close range

You say you're leaving for the coast but the pain that hurts the most
Is how you let me down, I tried to compromise
But you kept telling lies, you treated me like a clown
And you know it's hard to change when I'm shot down at close range

We had some good times together
But those days are hard to remember
We've got too much history
Don't shoot down my dreams again,
Don't pretend you are my friend
Just leave me with my dignity

Now we go our separate ways, our love was just a phase
That we were going through, but as you get aboard that plane
My tears just fall like rain , what else can I do
My life will never be the same as it I lose it at close range

Song Comments

Over The Moon
Yee ha!! Great rocking country track from Richard - like the fiddles and the whole feel of the track.


Heartland
A fast-paced Americana number with lots of nice touches, including fiddle and harmonica which really top it off. Great songwriting and vocals too, just a pleasure to listen to. - DW


Auf der gleichen Wellenlänge
Thanks to Scotti for bringing this folkish, fiddlin', bouncy rollick to IAC. It's the type of song you could listened to again and again.


The Gabby Station
Lots of traditional sounds blend pleasing to the ear, got a nice beat too. This one stays in your head!


What the Folk!
Its a good happening time with one of IMPNATIONS finest and most prolific songcrafters at close range written by Richard Scotti, this song with get your feet a tapping and your hands a clapping great feel and energy. love that fiddle-bryon


Groovy Music Monsters
Hey Richard! Another IMP legend guy! My featured artists don't have to be that, but hey it doesn't hurt, eh? I'm going to close the first 100 adds of this station with 3 of your tunes and this is #98! As soon as I saw the words "blazing fiddles" I knew I would add this before ever hearing it! Throughout the building of this station I have learned many things. One is that one cannot ever have too much cowbell, flamenco, or blazing fiddles! This song is "over-the-top" cool and groovy! Thanks, and keep cranking out the great hits; much appreciated!
