If I could be your full-time man I'd tell you what I'd do I would not dare to close my eyes or turn my back on you Can we go around the world or just out to a show Can we go to places fast and places not too slow If I were just your part-time man well that wouldn't be so bad I would not waste one second more deciding what to have I would lie in your arms or in the by and by I would lie to keep things fresh and keep you by my side You can tell how much I care by looking at the clothes I wear And I'm dressed to the nines for you And though I hate the telephone, I sure would love to get a call from you If I could only be your man or even slow your search Believe me I would prove exactly what these words are worth Can you see, I'm tired of doing nothing in the wings Can you see, there's nothing hiding underneath my sleeve

Gone 03:44
Well there’s one quick thing that I got to know Cause you drive me wild, hit me way down low So please, won’t you tell me so Oh please, won’t you tell me so I know you said that you got some place to go But that place could be right here, you know Is it just for show, or is it set in stone? Well I got to know, is it set in stone? There’s a certain thing, with certainty, that you feel down low Without recalling what’s come before, or what will go What has come before, or what will go I wink to block the sunlight out, so I can see your smile Until you’re gone, gone, gone Yeah you’re gone, gone, gone Well, people always ask you where you think you’ll be 10 years from now Now I can’t see just where I am, but I can feel you next to me I feel you standing next to me To simplify, to clarify, I’ll be the guy, never make you cry I’ll meet you at the end of the aisle I’ll be standing there by your side Well there’s one quick thing that I got to know Cause you drive me wild, hit me way down low So please, please, please won’t you tell me so Oh please, please, won’t you tell me so

Steppin' Out 04:15
Well I went to a dance in downtown Birmingham Where the women shake it and the trumpets play the band Well you can't go wrong, it's no surprise, do the mash potato, kick the roof up high Won't you get up, get up, won't you get up now Well I sure do miss the times back in the day I'd harmonize that second line all day Now I'm steppin' out while I'm steppin' in, one foot down and I'm sinkin' in Can I get up, get up, can I get up now Well I shoulda stuck with it, blown my horn out loud Coulda joined a band and made my mama proud In hindsight I can see it now, what to do next time around And I can get up, get up, I can get up now Well I went to a dance in downtown Birmingham Where the women shake it and the trumpets play the band In hindsight I can see it now, what to do next time around And I can get up, get up, I can get up now

Well I'm feeling tired But I'm wide awake me up I wasn't sleeping I'm just looking towards the floor I think I missed The turn back long ago But I am keeping my eyes peeled for the next sign And I know that I have added miles to this night I took the wrong way home tonight You have to pay Your dues until they'll pay for you But I can't say for sure when that will be I'm telling you I don't know when I'll be back around And it's still harder now to figure out And I know that I have added miles to this night I took the wrong way home tonight Well I'm feeling tired But I'm wide awake me up I wasn't sleeping I'm just looking towards the floor I think I missed The turn back long ago But I am keeping my eyes peeled for the next sign And I know that I have added miles to this night I took the wrong way home tonight Yeah I took the wrong way home tonight

Surprise, surprise You came into my life With a fragile heart Drying on the line And I will try To lead this time But I know I follow far behind The biggest thing It seems to me Is to just walk tall And to just breathe in To just ask why? Cause pride’s a prize But just enough To speak your mind And I will try To lead this time But I know I follow far behind And there’s a highway in the distance And perhaps a light or two that shines my name Though my words might appear to be twisted It’s these lines that’ll take me home again Surprise, surprise You came into my life With a fragile heart Drying on the line And I will try To lead this time But I know I follow far behind

Push & Shove 04:00
Well I’m not here to fall in love And I’m not here to push and shove No I’m not here to do most anything at all Well I’m not here to call your name And I’m not here to fill your shame With words of tenderness to quell your pain Chorus: And I’m not asking for your love And I won’t beg the stars above No I’m not here to push and shove Well I’m not here to bring you flowers And I won’t wait for you for hours No that’s just not what I am here to do No I don’t understand your faces And I’m not one to tie your laces No that’s just not what I am here to do

My baby says she's trav'ling on the one after 909 I said move over honey I'm travelling on that line I said move over once, move over twice Come on baby don't be cold as ice. I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909 I begged her not to leave and I begged her on my bended knees, You're only fooling around, you're fooling around with me. I said move over once, move over twice Come on baby don't be cold as ice. I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909 I got my bag, run to the station Railman says you've got the the wrong location I got my bag, run right home Then I find I've got the number wrong Well I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909 I said move over honey I'm travelling on that line I said move over once, move over twice Come on baby don't be cold as ice. I said we're trav'ling on the one after 909.

I was dreaming about you, my love Caught in between what my head made up I don’t recall what had happened in the next part I was trying to run, but my legs they got caught Was trying to wave, but my arms were in knots I wish I remembered, but I forget a lot Your words echoed out as I lay down last night A little too hot for my cold worried mind I tried to be sure that I feel asleep on my side Well I knew I was wrong, And I know you were right I should have just said that, instead of my pride I wish I remembered, but I forget in stride My history needs to stick with me as a road map, a guide Stay with me on down the line I was dreaming without you, my love Sliding between all my wandering thoughts I try and I try, but it’s hard to erase the next part I’m trying to run, but my legs they get caught Trying to wave, but my arms are in knots I wish I’d forgotten, but I remember too much

They're gonna tear down the grand old opry They're gonna tear down the sound that goes around our song They're gonna tear down the grand ole opry Another good thing, is done gone on, done gone on Well there were campers And there were busses Parked all around, where there used to be a door But that place Called the grand ole opry It just ain't there Just ain't there no more They're gonna tear down the grand old opry They're gonna tear down the sound that goes around our song They're gonna tear down the grand ole opry Another good thing, is done gone on, done gone on Right across from the wax museum they used to line up around the block From east Tennessee and back down home again All of a sudden there's nothing to do where there once was an awful lot Broad Street will never be the same They're gonna tear down the grand old opry They're gonna tear down the sound that goes around our song They're gonna tear down the grand ole opry Another good thing, is done gone on, done gone on I've been in love with the grand ole opry And I guess I have now for a good many years When I hear the grand ole opry It makes me sad that it's gonna disappear, gonna disappear

about

In the winter of 2020, we travelled up to an old farmhouse in rural Maine with one goal: to capture the Cold Chocolate duo sound. Performed and recorded together in the same room with no overdubs, “DUO” shows the evolution of our songs over the last 10 years, as well as where we’re headed as a band.
