I’M FREE AS A BIRD
by Tim R. Holifield

THERE’S NO POINT IN PRETENDING
THIS LOVE OF OURS
DOESN’T NEED MENDING

IT FELL APART A LONG TIME AGO
THERE’S NOT MUCH LEFT TO SAY
SO, I’LL JUST BE ON MY WAY

I’M ON THE RED-EYE BOUND FOR NOWHERE
IT WAS TIME TO GET OUTTA THERE
I COULD TELL SHE REALLY DIDN’T GIVE A DAMN
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, YES I AM
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, FREE TO FLY AWAY
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, AND ALL I CAN SAY
I DON’T GIVE A DAMN

WHERE-EVER THIS BIRD MAY LAND
REMAINS TO BE SEEN
NEXT TIME IT WON’T BE BETWEEN
A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE
IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME
JUST LOOK AT THE SMILE ON MY FACE

I’M ON THE RED-EYE BOUND FOR NOWHERE
IT WAS TIME TO GET OUTTA THERE
I COULD TELL SHE REALLY DIDN’T GIVE A DAMN
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, YES I AM
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, FREE TO FLY AWAY
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, AND ALL I CAN SAY
I DON’T GIVE A DAMN

NOW WHEN I TOUCH DOWN
HOPEFULLY IN A SMALL TOWN
MAYBE A LOVE I WILL FIND
IF TIME WOULD BE SO KIND
TO SHOW ME A PLACE
THAT’LL PUT A SMILE
ON THIS LONELY OLD FACE

I’M ON THE RED-EYE BOUND FOR NOWHERE
IT WAS TIME TO GET OUTTA THERE
I COULD TELL SHE REALLY DIDN’T GIVE A DAMN
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, YES I AM
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, FREE TO FLY AWAY
I’M FREE AS A BIRD, AND ALL I CAN SAY
I DON’T GIVE A DAMN

THERE’S NOT MUCH LEFT TO SAY
SO I’LL JUST BE ON MY WAY

I'M FREE AS A BIRD

IT’S LIKE FIRE
by Tim R. Holifield

I’VE BEEN SITTIN’ HERE LISTENIN’
TO THE TIK TOK ON THE WALL
WONDREIN’ IF I SHOULD PICK UP THE PHONE
AND GIVE YOU A CALL

RIGHT NOW I DON’T GIVE A DAMN
YES, I KNOW WHERE IT ENDS
AND I KNOW WHEN YOU LEAVE
WE’LL STILL JUST BE FRIENDS

YOU SAY YOU DON’T LOVE ME
YOU SAY THAT YOU DON’T NEED ME
BUT WHEN WE KISS, I KNOW YOU’RE A LIAR
CAUSE WHEN OUR BODIES TOUCH, IT’S LIKE FIRE
TWO CANDLES BURNIN’ WITH DESIRE
CAUSE WHEN WE KISS, IT’S LIKE FIRE
YOU GOTTA KNOW, YOU SET MY HEART ON FIRE

I KNOW WHATCHA’LL SAY BEFORE YOU LEAVE
YOU’LL SAY “I’M NOT WHATCHA NEED”
BUT YOUR WORDS I CAINT BELIEVE
CAUSE WHEN WE KISS, I KNOW YOU’RE A LIAR
CAUSE WHEN WE KISS, IT’S LIKE FIRE

I’VE BEEN SITTIN’ HERE LISTENIN’
TO THE TIK TOK ON THE WALL
WONDREIN’ IF I SHOULD GIVE YOU A CALL

BUT WHEN I CALL, YOU PICK UP ON THE FIRST RING
AND YOU ALWAYS SAY, “IT DOESN’T MEAN A THING”
BUT WHEN WE KISS, I KNOW YOU’RE A LIAR
CAUSE WHEN OUR BODIES TOUCH, IT’S LIKE FIRE
TWO CANDLES BURNIN’ WITH DESIRE
CAUSE WHEN WE KISS, IT’S LIKE FIRE
YOU GOTTA KNOW, YOU SET MY HEART ON FIRE

YOU SAY YOU DON’T LOVE ME
YOU SAY THAT YOU DON’T NEED ME
BUT WHEN WE KISS, I KNOW YOU’RE A LIAR
CAUSE WHEN WE TOUCH, IT’S LIKE FIRE

IT'S LIKE FIRE

YOUR EVERYTHING
by Tim R. Holifield

ON THE DAY THAT I MET YOU
IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY
NO MAN COULD NOT HAVE
ASKED FOR MORE

THE ANGELS MUST HAVE BEEN DREAMIN’
WHEN THEY THOUGHT UP YOU
TWO BEAUTIFUL BLUE EYES I COULD SEE
WHEN YOU TURNED AND SMILED AT ME
IT WAS ALMOST MORE THAN I COULD BARE
YOUR LOVELY HAIR SWAYIN’ EVERYWHERE
I COULDN’T HELP BUT STARE
THAT’S WHEN I FELT LOVE IN THE AIR

I WAS SHOT THROUGH THE HEART
ONLY CUPID TO BLAME
YOU’RE THE ONE
I WANNA GIVE MY LAST NAME

MANY THINGS I HAVE SEEN
WITH YOU THERE’S NO IN BETWEEN
BUT THERE IS ONE THING
FOR I WANNA MAKE YOU MY QUEEN
THEN I WANNA BE.....
YOUR EVERYTHING

FROM NOW UNTIL THE END OF TIME
CROSS MY HEART AND PROMISE THIS
I’LL BE YOUR’S AND YOU’LL BE MINE

I WAS SHOT THROUGH THE HEART
AND CUPID TO BLAME
YOU WERE THE ONE
I GAVE MY LAST NAME
WITH YOU THERE’S NO IN BETWEEN
BUT JUST ONE THING
I MADE YOU MY QUEEN
NOW I’M GONNA BE......
YOUR EVERYTHING

I JUST HAD TO SAY
THERE YOU WERE STANDING THERE
WITH LITTLER FLOWERS IN YOUR HAIR
THERE YOU WERE JUST AS PRETTY
AS ANY BRIDE COULD BE
ON OUR WEDDING DAY

I JUST HAD TO SAY
THERE WE WERE STANDING THERE
AND LOVE WAS IN THE AIR
THERE WE WERE JUST AS HAPPY
AS ANY COUPLE COULD BE
ON OUR WEDDING DAY

ON OUR WEDDING DAY
IT WAS NEEDLESS TO SAY
IT WAS OUR DAY
NOBODY COULD TAKE THAT AWAY

ON OUR WEDDING DAY
YOU WERE DRESSED IN WHITE
AND YOU LOOKED SO RIGHT
YOU WERE JUST AS BEAUTIFUL
AS YOU COULD BE
COMING DOWN TO ME

ON OUR WEDDING DAY
AND THE MUSIC THAT PLAYED
TO VOWS WE MADE
WITH YOUR HAND IN MINE
WE VOWED TO LOVE
UNTIL THE END OF TIME
ON OUR WEDDING DAY
ON OUR WEDDING DAY

WHEN EVERYTHING WAS SAID AND DONE
WE WERE JOINED AS ONE
WE HAD PLEDGED OUR HEARTS
TO ONE ANOTHER
ONLY TO BE LOVER TO LOVER
TO FORSAKE ANY OTHER

THERE WE WERE STANDING THERE
THERE WE WERE JUST AS HAPPY
AS ANY COUPLE COULD BE

I WILL RISE
By Tim R. Holifield

I CAN SEE THE STORM CLOUDS BUILDING
IN THE FAR DISTANCE
I CAN SEE WHAT LIES AHEAD OF ME

IT’S NOT LIKE I HAVEN’T BEEN HERE BEFORE
THE ENEMY HAS TRIED ME IN THE PAST
AND I KNOW THIS TOO SHALL PASS

IT MAY LOOK LIKE I’M STANDING ALL ALONE
AND I KNOW THAT I’M SURROUNDED BY ARMS
BECAUSE IN THE ARMS OF JESUS CHRIST ALONE
I KNOW I’M SAFE AND SECURED FROM ALL HARM

I AM STANDING ON A MOUTAIN TALL AND WIDE
I HAVE THE GREAT KING AND HIS ARMY ON MY SIDE
AND WHEN ALL THE BATTLES ARE WON
AND ALL MY CHORES ARE DONE
AND HE CALLS MY NAME
I WILL RISE..... WITH NO SHAME
I WILL RISE..... WITH NO SHAME
I WILL RISE..... WITH NO SHAME

TIME AND TIME AGAIN
I’VE TURNED THE OTHER CHEEK
AND WITH A BIG GRIN
THE ENEMY TOOK ME TO BE WEAK
TIME AND TIME AGIN
THE ENEMY HAS BEEN BEAT

IT MAY LOOK LIKE I’M STANDING ALL ALONE
AND I KNOW THAT I’M SURROUNDED BY ARMS
IN THE ARMS OF JESUS CHRIST ALONE
I AM SAFE AND SECURED FROM ALL HARM

I AM STANDING ON A MOUTAIN TALL AND WIDE
I HAVE THE GREAT KING AND HIS ARMY ON MY SIDE
AND WHEN ALL THE BATTLES ARE WON
AND ALL MY CHORES ARE DONE
AND HE CALLS MY NAME
I WILL RISE.... WITH NO SHAME (X3)

I WILL RISE

HOME IS WHERE I WANT TO BE
by Tim R. Holifield

I’VE BEEN LIVIN’ MY LIFE LIKE A CHILD
WHO’S RAN AWAY FROM HOME LIVIN’ WILD
I WAS FREE TO DO AS I PLEASE
NOT HAVIN’ TO ANSWER TO ANYONE

I COULD RUN AROUND
AND “PAINT THE TOWN”!
I COULD DO “WHATEVER”!
IT DIDN’T MATTER
AS LONG AS IT WAS FUN

NOW I’M ALL ALONE
NOWHERE TO CALL HOME
NOT A THING TO EAT
AND BLISTERS ON MY FEET
WHAT HAVE I DONE?

LOOKIN’ AROUND I HAVE NO ONE
THIS WAY OF LIVIN’ IS NO FUN
LOOKIN’ AROUND TO FIND A PHONE
ALL I WANT TO DO IS CALL HOME
SO I CLOSED MY EYES AND BOWED MY HEAD
AND THIS IS WHAT I SAID

DADDY PLEASE HEAR ME....
DADDY PLEASE HEAR ME CALLIN’ YOU
I’M ALL ALONE AND NOWHERE TO GO
I’M SCARED, DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
I WAS BLINDED, BUT NOW I CAN SEE
PLEASE FORGIVE ME, DADDY
HOME IS WHERE I WANT TO BE

DADDY PLEASE HEAR ME....
DADDY PLEASE HEAR ME CALLIN’ YOU
I’M ALL ALONE, DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
I WAS BLINDED, BUT NOW I CAN SEE
DADDY,PLEASE FORGIVE ME....
HOME IS WHERE I WANT TO BE
HOME IS WHERE I WANT TO BE

LIKE A PRODIGAL SON
FORGIVEN FOR WHAT HAS BEEN DONE
WITH OPEN ARMS EXTENDED
IS WHERE BROKEN HEARTS ARE MENDED
LIKE A RAINBOW IN THE SKY
WE NEVER HAVE TO ASK WHY
HE’LL ALWAYS BE WITH US
JUST COME HOME, TO JESUS

HOME IS WHERE I WANT TO BE

YOU SHOULD’VE SEEN HER
by Tim R.Holifield

I WOKE UP THIS MORNING
TO FIND THAT YOU WERE GONE
I FOUND THE LETTER YOU LEFT
SAYIN’ YOU WASN’T COMING BACK HOME

SO I GRABBED MY PAPER AND PEN
JUST LIKE I HAVE DONE OFTEN
JOTTIN’ DOWN LINES TO A SONG
WONDERIN’ WHERE WE WENT WRONG

YOU SHOULD’VE SEEN HER
SHE COULDN’T’VE BEEN MEANER
WHEN I CAME HOME LAST NIGHT
I KNEW SHE WAS GONNA PICK A FIGHT
I COULD SEE THE FIRE IN HER EYES
HER ANGER WAS HER BEST DISGUISE

SHE FOLLOWED ME INTO THE KITCHEN
AND SHE STARTED HER BITCHIN’
SHE WENT ON AND ON ACUSIN’ ME
OF EVERYTHING IN THE BOOK
SHE EVEN HAD THAT LOOK
SO I THOUGHT IT WAS BEST
JUST TO LAY DOWN AND LET IT REST

NOW SITTIN’ HERE LOOKIN’ BACK
I SHOULDN’T’VE SAID THIS AND THAT
WHEN SHE CALLED ME ON THE PHONE
WHEN I WAS ON MY WAY HOME
ALL IT DID WAS ROWLD HER UP MORE
SHE WAS WAITIN’ FOR ME AT THE DOOR

YOU SHOULD’VE SEEN HER
SHE COULDN’T’VE BEEN MEANER
WHEN I CAME HOME LAST NIGHT
I KNEW SHE WAS GONNA PICK A FIGHT
I COULD SEE THE FIRE IN HER EYES
HER ANGER WAS HER BEST DISGUISE

SHE FOLLOWED ME INTO THE KITCHEN
WITH A WHOLE-LOTTA-BITCHIN’
WHICH ALL THIS HAD ME WISHIN’
THAT I’D JUST STAYED OUT THERE FISHIN’

YOU SHOULD’VE SEEN HER
SHE COULDN’T’VE BEEN MEANER
WHEN I CAME HOME LAST NIGHT
I KNEW SHE WAS GONNA PICK A FIGHT
I COULD SEE THE FIRE IN HER EYES
HER ANGER WAS HER BEST DISGUISE

NOW I’M A SITTIN’ HERE
SIPPIN’ ON A ICE COLD BEER
LOOKIN’ OVER WHAT SHE HAD WRITTEN
NOW I’M THINKIN’.... GOOD RIDDIN’

YOU SHOULD'VE SEEN HER

I JUST KEEP FALLIN’ APART
by Tim R. Holifield


I WOKE UP THIS MORNING
TO FIND MYSELF ALL ALONE
DON’T KNOW WHERE MY LIFE IS GOING
OR EVEN WHERE YOU HAVE GONE

BEEN LOOKIN’ AT PICTURES OF ME AND YOU
AND REMEMBERIN’
ALL THE THINGS WE USE TO DO
RIGHT NOW THE WAY I FEEL
THIS HURTIN’ WILL NEVER HEAL
THEY SAY TIME HEALS A BROKEN HEART
BUT I JUST KEEP FALLIN’ APART

I’VE SPENT A LIFETIME LOVIN’ YOU
AND NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
FINDIN’ IT SO HARD TO GET OVER YOU
NOT THAT I HAVEN’T BEEN TRYING
IN BETWEEN TIMES I’VE BEEN CRYING
THEY SAY TIME HEALS A BROKEN HEART
BUT I JUST KEEP FALLIN’ APART

I’VE LEARNED WHISKEY DOESN’T HELP MY CASE
THIS IS THE PAIN THAT I MUST FACE
DAY AFTER DAY I JUST KEEP GOIN’ ON
I FIND COMFORT IN OUR FAVORITE SONG

EVERY NIGHT I CRY,
WONDERIN’ WHERE LOVE WENT WRONG
ALWAYS THOUGHT TOGETHER IS WHERE
WE WOULD ALWAYS BELONG

I’VE SPENT A LIFETIME LOVIN’ YOU
AND NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
FINDIN’ IT SO HARD TO GET OVER YOU
NOT THAT I HAVEN’T BEEN TRYING
IN BETWEEN TIMES I’VE BEEN CRYING
THEY SAY TIME HEALS A BROKEN HEART
BUT I JUST KEEP FALLIN’ APART

TONIGHT I’M SEARCHIN’ FOR A FRIEND
IN A BOTTLE OF CAPTAIN MORGAN
I KNOW OUR LOVE WAS MORE THAN
ANYTHING ELSE COULD HAVE BEEN

I’VE SPENT A LIFETIME LOVIN’ YOU
AND NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
FINDIN’ IT SO HARD TO GET OVER YOU
NOT THAT I HAVEN’T BEEN TRYING
IN BETWEEN TIMES I’VE BEEN CRYING
THEY SAY TIME HEALS A BROKEN HEART
BUT I JUST KEEP FALLIN’ APART

I JUST KEEP FALLIN' APART

About Me

Bio

I am Timothy Ray Holifield, and I was born and raised in Pensacola Florida
I graduated from high school in 1980 then went on to live life my way. In January of 1982 I married my high-school sweetheart, from there and we stayed in Pensacola that's where we lived for 37 years until she passed away in 2019. I guess from about the eighth grade and throughoutlife I've always had a knack for writing..... mostly poems and songs and maybe a short story here and there. I guess some were pretty good cause I remember one certain poem won her heart,when she read 'A Broken Heart's Prayer"
I'm a 50 something young at heart man. Trying to make my way through this journey...."We call Life"
OH, did I mention that I have been known to be a comedian At times.... but don't we have need a laugh here and there!
