about

Adam Allen Michigan

I make music for multiple reasons and whether it's for myself, my fans, my family or some stranger who happened to hear a tune of mine while surfing the web; I make music because I love to. I write real songs about real things. My tunes may not fit the "mainstream radio" crowd but I don't need them to. Being part of the crowd isn't all it's cracked up to be. In my songs, I say what I want to. ... more

Track Name: The Girl Next Door
Well, She ain't your typical backwoods country girl
She likes bright lights, night life
Brother she can rock your world
And her sweet little smile can catch any man off guard
And it's hard to stop a good thing
Once it starts

She's a train comin' off the track
A horse that cant be tamed
If you ever try to hold her back
She's gonna bring the pain
She can give you all that you can handle
Then she'll give you more
But where I come from
She's just the girl next door

She's good, good, good at going way to far
And with moves like that
Who cares what her intentions are

She's a train comin' off the track
A horse that cant be tamed
If you ever try to hold her back
She's gonna bring the pain
She can give you all that you can handle
Then she'll give you more
But where I come from
She's just the girl next door
Track Name: My Love
I don't wanna ever have to say I lost it
Gonna save it up and put it in my pocket
Lock it away somewhere
So when the day is too long
And you just can't bear it
Come on home and I'm there to share my love
Oh my love, my love

Oh and baby when the world has got you down and feeling weary
Just call my name
Ill come around and hold you near me My love
Oh my love, my love, my love

You know, you know, you know
You got the best of me
And you know, you know, you know
I got what you need

When my arms won't reach
My mouth won't speak, my eyes won't see
You still believe in me and my love
Oh my love, my love

I've been waiting pretty baby
For a rainy day to save me
To lay in bed with you
And you can drive me crazy my love
Oh my love, my love, my love

You know, you know, you know
You got the best of me
And you know, you know, you know
I got what you need

Oh my love, my love, my love, my love
Track Name: As Low As I Can Get
You don't know
How I feel
It takes more than time
For hearts to heal

I said "hello"
You said "goodbye"
I've seen the truth
But I still live a lie

So let me go
Watch me fall apart
Dig this hole
And leave me in the dark
I may be low
But baby you can bet
I ain't as low as I can get

I've searched this soul
And all I've found
Was torn apart
And broken down

And I don't need
Your life of sin
Climbing out
Is like sinking in

So let me go
Watch me fall apart
Dig this hole
And leave me in the dark
I may be low
But baby you can bet
I ain't as low as I can get
Track Name: Good To Me
Picasso and his brush
Galileo and the stars
Einsteins IQ
Bo Duke jumping cars
Hank Aaron and that swing
Elvis and those moves
Everybody's got their thing
And the thing that you do

You're so good
At being good to me
It's what you were born to do
No need to think it through
When it comes to loving me
It's only you

Dr. Seuss and his rhymes
Casanova and his charm
Until the end of time
I want you in my arms

You're so good
At being good to me
It's what you were born to do
No need to think it through
When it comes to loving me
It's only you
Track Name: Late
I had a way of getting good grades
Doing as little as I could do
When the homework was passed to the front of the room
I sat there and I played the fool

And I did my best
To lie through my teeth
I told her my dog ate it after it caught fire
Still she didn't believe

She said Late
You can do your best to plan for the worse
It's ok
Another story to tell, another lesson to learn

I gathered the nerve to ask for a date
From the prettiest girl in school
So when she said "yes" and the night arrived
I was feeling good and looking cool

I left on time
Showed up at the door
Boy my face turned red when that old man said
I should've turned 6 blocks before

I was late
You can do your best to plan for the worse
It's ok
Another story to tell, another lesson to learn

Well the love grew fast
And she took my name
And just like that
My whole life changed

When she sat me down
I knew right away
With that look in her eyes
And that smile on her face
I held her hand as she started to say

I'm late
And we did our best to plan for the birth
We're ok
Bedtime stories to tell, a lot of lessons to learn
Track Name: Nothing's Good Enough For Me
The day you kicked me out of the house
You said pack your things and get out right now
You said move on, get yourself on track
Now you see how far I've gone and want me back

Cuz now I'm making millions baby
Singing the songs you didn't know you wrote for me
You always said I'd get nowhere but
It was you who got me here
Talk about some irony
You always said I'd be nothing without you
I'm glad to say baby you knew
What more could I be?
If this is nothing baby,
Then nothing's good enough for me

And I want to thank you for the 3-car garage
The heated pool is nice and the big backyard
And I bought that hot tub that you wanted so bad
I never use it, I just knew it'd make you mad
You thought I went crazy, I said I'd make you believe
But I never knew, that you'd influence me


Now I'm making millions baby
Singing the songs you didn't know you wrote for me
You always said I'd get nowhere but
It was you who got me here
Talk about some irony
You always said I'd be nothing without you
I'm glad to say baby you knew
What more could I be?
If this is nothing baby,
Then nothing's good enough for me

I wish I could have saw your face
When you saw me on TV
Dancing around on your screen
Singing my songs
On CMT


Cuz now I'm making millions baby
Singing the songs you didn't know you wrote for me
You always said I'd get nowhere but
It was you who got me here
Talk about some irony
You always said I'd be nothing without you
I'm glad to say baby you knew
What more could I be?
If this is nothing baby,
Then nothing's good enough for me
Track Name: All
This hearts been broken
But you don't seem to mind
This empty space is filled
With things you left behind
And every shadow
That moves across this room
They haunt my mind, take me back to a time
Before I lost you

And I wonder
Do you ever think of me?
Cuz I still believe

That we're all but over
We're all but through
These 4 walls that surround me
Every breath I breathe is you
I recall all the memories
Where I feel like you belong
Because you're all
You're all to me
You're all to me but gone

My friend's say
Throw away all she left
They don't realize that
In my mind I've kept
You alive and well and
In this hell I've made
I'll stay because you
Never went away

That we're all but over
We're all but through
These 4 walls that surround me
Every breath I breathe is you
I recall all the memories
Where I feel like you belong
Because you're all
You're all to me
You're all to me but gone
Track Name: When Momma Parties
Momma likes to party
And daddy doesn't mind
But he'd rather remember all those nights
Through a pair of bloodshot eyes
While mommas getting prettied up
Daddies waiting in the car
They drive downtown to the closest lounge
God momma loves that bar
They walk right up to the bar
She opens daddy's tab
A small price to pay for him not to remember
The night they're about to have

Well the whiskeys hard
And the musics loud
The bottoms go up
The people go down
It's best for daddy not to know what mommas thinking
So when momma parties
Daddy does the drinking

Jim Beam and Jack Daniels
Are daddies best friends
They're the only 2 who stick it through
Until the very end
Well the beer takes the memories
And the whiskey takes the fear
They've been doing a hell of a job
For the last 15 years


Well the whiskeys hard
And the musics loud
The bottoms go up
The people go down
It's best for daddy not to know what mommas thinking
So when momma parties
Daddy does the drinking
Track Name: Lullaby
This jail cell is so damn cold
Your tears fall down
Shatter on the ground below
There's nothing to run from
You take one day at a time
And pray the next one doesn't come
Because time means nothing here
Time is the first thing
You learn not to fear
All you have for company
Is all your useless thoughts
And painful memories

Looking back on all I've done
It's safe to say that I don't like who I've been
Now I've got my whole life
To think about all the things I'll never do again

One false move
One step over the line
Sometimes I wish
I could go back in time
My heart can't take it anymore
This weary body has no soul like before

Looking back on all I've done
It's safe to say that I don't like who I've been
Now I've got my whole life
To think about all the things I'll never do again
Track Name: Got The Songs
It was his 3rd bar that week
It doesn't pay the rent when you play
For beer and gasoline
But he had dreams
Bigger than this town
And he prayed every night the neon lights
Would help him be found

Then one day
He made a demo CD
Packed up all his things
Moved to Tennessee
He played it for all who would listen
All them suits up in the suites
They said "boy, something's missing
You'll never fill the seats
Just take it from me"

Cuz He ain't got the look
He ain't got the style
He ain't got that thing
That drives the ladies wild
He ain't got the boots
He ain't got that down home drawl
But he's got the songs

Well he spent the next few years
Trying to prove them wrong
Putting all his heart and soul and time
Into writing brand new songs about
Love and loss and heartache
Scars and broken dreams
Waylon, whiskey and women
And what life really means

Then one day just after closing
A man with his own show said
"You ever dream of playing
On that country radio"
And they played it for all who would listen
And that boy lit up the lines
Said "you got what country's missing
We'll make the suits change their minds
What the hell was on their minds saying?"

Cuz He ain't got the look
He ain't got the style
He ain't got that thing
That drives the ladies wild
He ain't got the boots
He ain't got that down home drawl
But he's got the songs

Well the crowds
They grew bigger
And he was living his dream
He's got everything he wants in life
And everything he needs

Cuz he's got the look
And he's got the style
And he's got the girls
Cuz he drives them wild
And he's got the crowds
And they're all just singing along
Cuz he's got the songs
Track Name: Pedro
I was driving through some little Cuban town
When a little old man flagged me down
So I stopped and I offered him a ride
I opened my door and he climbed in
Said my names Juan boy, thanks for the lift
When you stopped for me it really took me by surprise
Juan where you headed I said with a smile
He said down the road just a couple miles
There's a little place known by very few
When he climbed in he set a cage on his lap
I was intrigued and so I asked
Hey Juan, what's that you're taking with you?
He said this is Hank, he's a fighting cock
He's one of the best and he's won me a lot
And you're just about to take us to win more Pesos
So I said Juan, Hey can I stop by?
Give this cock fighting thing a try
And he said sure but just beware before we go
There's a funny little man that just happens to
Block all the birds when they get loose
So no pretty Senioritas get hurt
When we walked in I saw what he meant
He had a big ol' bird caught by the fence
And I saw this living legend at work

He's Pedro the cock blocker
He's the greatest in the south
He'll do his best, put em' to the test
To keep those peckers out
When you see him there
You better beware
Your pecker don't stand no chance
He's Pedro the cock blocker
He's the greatest in the land

Pedro knew exactly what he was doing
He grabbed a stick and he got right to it
And he took that bird and pushed it away
Juan said boy let me tell you the tale
He took a big breathe and then he exhaled
And gathered the words that he was about to say
He said I think it was back in '77
There was this bird with bad intentions
And nobody else was willing to step in
Until a funny little man from out in the crowd
Stood right up and shouted out loud
And so the legend of Pedro begins
I was amazed at the talent he shown
The cock turned away his shot was blown
And he knew there was no possible way out
The senioritas cheered at that gutsy man
As he held that crazy cock in his hand
They knew they were safe without a doubt

He's Pedro the cock blocker
He's the greatest in the south
He'll do his best, put em' to the test
To keep those peckers out
When you see him there
You better beware
Your pecker don't stand no chance
He's Pedro the cock blocker
He's the greatest in the land

If you're ever down in a Cuban town
Just ask Juan, he'll show you around
And you're gonna hear the tale I just told
So bring you cock, just beware
There's a funny little man who does his share
To keep his legend from growing old

He's Pedro the cock blocker
He's the greatest in the south
He'll do his best, put em' to the test
To keep those peckers out
When you see him there
You better beware
Your pecker don't stand no chance
He's Pedro the cock blocker
He's the greatest in the land
