EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE ALL RIGHT  

Everything's Gonna Be All Right

 

Let me rest my head on your shoulder for just a little while

I just need a little love and I know you can show me

and tell me everything's gonna be all right.

you see,

I try to always be the strong one

don't wanna ever let you see me down

but right now, I'm feeling broken, cold and lonely

and baby I know you can help me out

 

Let me rest my head on your shoulder

For a little while

I just need some love

baby, you know how to show me

and tell me everything's gonna be all right

 

Everybody needs some place they can go

no matter when or where or why

even a strong man,

He feels weak sometimes

Baby!

 

Let me rest my head on your shoulder, C'mon

for a little while

I just need a little loving baby

and you're the one that can show me

and tell me everyhing's gonna be all right

with your love everything's gonna be all right

Tell me everything's gonna be all right.

WALK AWAY SLOW  

Walk Away Slow

 

Don't dare knock on my door

no reason to come 'round here

I don't ever wanna see you no more

let me be perfectly clear

 

Never again speak my name

or let it cross your tongue

it's one word you should never say

or I'll shoot you down with my gun

 

Consider this fair warning now,

don't try to say that you don't know

I won't waste any time putting you in the ground

then I'll smile and I'll walk away slow

 

Be sure you never dream about me

or let me be on your mind

my face is something if you ever see

I'll make sure that you lose your sight

 

I've got a big ol' six gun

a handful of brass and lead

I'll happily call the grave digger

and put a bullet right through your head

 

 Consider this fair warning now

don't try to say you don't know

I won't waste any time putting you in the ground

then I'll smile and I'll walk away slow

 

walk away slow

smile and walk away slow

I'll smile and I'll walk away slow.

JUST MY LUCK  

Just My Luck

Making waves on shifting burning sand

I want a drink of water but there's none around

I'll be damned, somehow, I nearly drowned

 

One way or another

by chance or from my mother

any time anything starts looking up

I'm a sure bet to self-destruct

Well, that's just my luck.

 

Pages torn from the records of myself

on the ground and under foot

I threw away what I should've kept

evidence of what I've got left

 of all the things that looked like they were good

I'm so misunderstood.

 

One way or another

by chance or from my mother

every time anything starts looking up

I'm a sure bet to self-destruct

That's just my luck

NOTHING BUT SMOKE  

 

Poured myself some coffee,black as coal

rubbed my eyes and hit the road

my destination, I ain't telling a soul

could be 'cuz I don't know

I gotta get myself somewhere out there on my own

 

Those walls have been creeping in on me for too long

taking my freedom away

nobody to blame but myself, I suppose

I couldn't take one more day,

I would've died if I had stayed, I know

now its over.

 

Now its over, there's nowhere else we can go

there ain't no getting around it, we can't go straight through

there's not a single goddam thing that either one of us can do

there used to be fire

now there's nothing but smoke

 

I thought it was real

I doubled down and I bet to win

one last wager on love

I figured luck might give me a smile

since I'd lost so many times

but here I am with nothing to show (why)

 

Now its over, there's nowhere else we can go 

there ain't no getting around it, we can't go straight through 

there's not a single goddam thing that either one of us can do 

there used to be fire 

now there's nothing but smoke

Can I get some guitar?

Jackson County Killer
Darren Camp Music 2015


I live in Jackson County
But I came from Hell
I've got lots of secrets
that I'll never tell
if you're passing through here
and you hear cries for help
you better keep on moving
If you wanna save yourself

'cuz I'm the Jackson County Killer
and I don't play around
If you cross my path,
you never will be found.
In this game there's just one winner
The Jackson County Killer

Inside me there's a hunger
that's screaming to be fed
then there's all these voices
that echo in my head
they're sending me a message,
a message from the dead
if I don't listen, they get really mad

some people call me crazy
they say that I'm not well
and if they try to take me,
they won't live to tell the tale

'cuz I'm the Jackson County Killer
I don't play around

If you cross my path, 
you never will be found. 
In this game there's just one winner 
The Jackson County Killer

Fool's Legacy  

Fool's Legacy 

Darren Camp Music 2016 

 

I've lived my life as a pauper 

on the dimes and the quarters 

that make their way down to me 

I'd be lying if I said 

my life's been easy 

on the cold hard ground 

my seed was sewn 

where nothing but saw briars grow 

When I draw my last breath 

don't bother crying 

I've been stubborn as hell 

brought my troubles on myself 

No, I can't blame anyone else 

that there's no tribute to me 

nobody salutes a fool's legacy 

Strike your match and hold to my body 

watch this flesh and these bones 

be consumed by the flames 

and when only the ashes 

and carbon remain 

send me down the river on slow gentle waves 

For the first time in my life 

I'll travel past the bend 

I've dreamed of going since I was a kid 

I'll just float with the current 

no burdens on me 

freedom, thank God 

I found finally

Yellow Flowers  

Yellow Flowers 
Darren Camp Music 2015


 

One day last spring, Dropping Kids off at school 

by the side of the road, There they stood 

Yellow flowers, bursting in bloom, 

They reminded me of the spring, We spent in your room, 

Hiding from the world, getting high to Dave Matthews, 

You were an open book, and I was too. 

Looking out your window, throught the trees in the meadow, 

Full of life and power, I can still smell, 

Those yellow flowers; Yellow flowers 

So long ago, I'll never forget, how everything felt so right- I've got no regrets 

So many things, were left unsaid; sometimes it's best to let go, 

and keep the memories instead. 

We burned so hot, like gasoline 

running hot, running lean, 

and then one day, 

it all disappeared. 

I'll always smile, when I think back, 

About the love that was ours 

and those yellow flowers 

Those yellow flowers.

Believe  

Believe 

Darren Camp Music 2015 
 

You woke up a feeling inside me 

I thought it was dead but its just been asleep 

I'd fallen from grace; misplace my faith, 

Didn't have much reason to believe 

You sparked a revival, cast doubt on my denial 

gave me reason to see, faithfully; became my survival 

so I'm down on my knees, begging you please 

bring me through the fire; quench my desire, 

help me believe. 

I close my eyes and I pray 

that someday I find a way to repay 

This debt back to you, love you never knew 

You'll hear these words and you'll say, 

You sparked a revival, cast doubt on my denial 

gave me reason to see, faithfully; became my survival 

so I'm down on my knees, begging you please 

bring me through the fire; quench my desire, 

help me believe ** Bring me through the fire, quench my desire, Help me Believe

Don't Bring Me Down  

Don't Bring Me Down 

Copyright 2014 Darren Camp Music 
 

I Always see all this bad on TV 

Too much corruption,war and destruction 

Tempers flaring, sirens blaring 

Sometimes I need just a little room to breathe 

Don't bring me down 

No, don't bring me down 

Just remember when you come around 

Don't bring me down 

I feel like I carry the weight of the world 

Temperature's rising, it's beginning to boil 

So my friend, won't you please help me through 

When I spend my time with you? 

Don't bring me down 

No, don't bring me down 

Just remember when you come around 

Don't bring me down 

 

Repeat Chorus

5 O'clock News 

 

Copyright 2014 Darren Camp Music 

Could you paint a darker picture if you tried? 

Does your conscience scream at you from deep inside? 

Is there nothing that makes you want to stop? 

The darkest hour of the day is five O'Clock. 

How many died today, how many cried? 

You spell it out like its so cut and dry. 

You smile and plant your seed of rotten fruit. 

You're the Reaper's speaker in a 3-piece suit. 

Your canvass lies within us all, 

your pessimistic views have got me against the wall, 

you pain with red and black and even darker hues, 

Its the showcase of death, the five O'Clock news. 

Prime time is crime time, what purpose does it serve? 

"Reap what you sew", I hope you get what you deserve, 

Death-hungry vultures, with murder on the brain; 

All of this madness is making me insane. 

Your canvass lies within us all, 

your pessimistic views have got me against the wall, 

you pain with red and black and even darker hues, 

Its the showcase of death, the five O'Clock news. 

The five O'Clock news 

The five O'Clock news.
