A Constant Companion
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

never can forget you
even if I wanted to
you are always by my side
and within me
people may come and go
but you’re my
constant companion
constant companion
constant companion

you fade but never leave
make me think I can do as I please
but you come roaring back
leave me flat on my back
from the pain left by desire
but you’re my
constant companion
constant companion
constant companion

(bridge)
all alone I moan
you’re gone I’m sure
leaving me when my heartache
then you return telling me
it was all a fake

the doctors just say its in my head
something to live with
to experience in the end
no matter how much chagrin
but you’re my
constant companion
constant companion
constant companion

a constant companion
a constant companion
a constant companion
a constant companion

Is Tik-Tok Ruining Pop Music?

by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner

It definitely seems as though Tik-Tok’s ability to make or break a pop song is beginning to warp pop music, just like MTV did back in the day. I say this because of the song “Stay With Me” by Halsey and a few others.

If you just hear the Halsey’s hook for the song, you think you’re getting a really good song on her part. But then the actual song is a rather lazy, mediocre dance pop song. It’s so bad that you feel kind of suckered.

Of course, the reason why this happened is the record company knew that the good Halsey part of the song is probably the only thing most Zoomers on Tik-Tok would ever hear of the song in the first place. So they decided to concentrate on only having the hook with Halsey be any good.

This sucks. I hate this. I want entire songs to be good, not just snippets of it them that are meant to be used as background music on Tik-Toks. Oh well.

‘Terribly Negative Person’ — #lyrics to a #pop #rock #ballad

Terribly Negative Person
lyrics by @sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

don’t call me bitter
I’m not your babysitter
people come and go in your life
isn’t it a sight
you have the gall to say
to my dismaay
that I’m a
terribly negative person
terribly negative person
terribly negative person

don’t you dare give me
a blank stare of a dare

don’t you dare give me
a blank stare of a dare

I’m not what you think
I swear, I swear
I’m not a
terribly negative person
terribly negative person
terribly negative person

I might bet a bit better
but you would be too
if you had your heart broken
by someone like you
but you’re cruel in the extreme
to scream that I’m a
terribly negative person
terribly negative person
terribly negative person

(bridge)
I remember when I had hope
and love did not seem on the ropes
but you came into my life
now I don’t know what is a lie
and what is true

don’t you dare give me
a blank stare of a dare

don’t you dare give me
a blank stare of a dare

I’m not what you think
I swear, I swear
I’m not a
terribly negative person
terribly negative person
terribly negative person

I might bet a bit better
but you would be too
if you had your heart broken
by someone like you
but you’re cruel in the extreme
to scream that I’m a
terribly negative person
terribly negative person
terribly negative person

‘Unwanted Hugs’ #lyrics to a #pop #rock #ballad

I’m really proud of this one.

Unwanted Hugs
lyrics by @sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

the break up was a year ago
we’re no longer a thing
in the end it was all a game
but what can I say I still
look forward to seeing you and the
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs

if it wasn’t for unwanted hugs
what would we have
if it was’t for unwanted hugs
our relationship would be dead

here come close
close enough to smell
I need one of those
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs

people claim we made a cute couple
maybe we did I don’t know
but all I know is how you feel
when I go in for one of those
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs

if it wasn’t for unwanted hugs
what would we have
if it was’t for unwanted hugs
our relationship would be dead

here come close
close enough to smell
I need one of those
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs

(bridge)
when the hugs were wanted
and things were going well
things were just so swell
but that was a long, long time ago
now all I’ve got are

unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs
unwanted hugs

‘My Brother’s Keeper’ — #lyrics to a #pop #country song

My Brother’s Keeper
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

his trucks get bigger and bigger
while my paycheck grows
ever smaller and smaller
he has the wife and the kids
while my life is on the skids
the family ties bind
but I feel myself torn

we’re all in this together
being our brother’s keeper
we’re all going to make it through
being our borther’s keeper
what am I to but
let my brother keep me

my family looks down on my lot
wondering if I ever had a shot
but they love me I know they do
doesn’t stop them throwing up their hands
what to do
what to do
what to do

we’re all in this together
being our brother’s keeper
we’re all going to make it through
being our brother’s keeper
what am I to but
let my brother keep me

(bridge)
when I was young
we were close as can be
we were all in it together
going to make it big
holding hands with a roar
where did those days go

we’re all in this together
being our brother’s keeper
we’re all going to make it through
being our brother’s keeper
what am I to but
let my brother keep me

‘White Hot’ — #lyrics to a #pop #rock song

White Hot
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

my heart burns white hot
the rage keeps me awake
knowing what happening
makes me want to act
but it’s not my place
all I can do is be
white hot
white hot
white hot

it’s not my place to say
but I want to make it that way
when I think of it
makes me want to protect you
but we all make our decisions
so all I got is feeling
white hot
white hot
white hot

(bridge)
calm as can be
relaxed and still
wishing they made
this feeling in a pill
but for now I must feel
white hot

white hot
white hot
white hot
white hot
white hot
white hot

‘Wasted’ — #lyrics to a #pop #rock song

Wasted
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

bar hopping yet again
stagger through the dark streets
daring cars to hit me
hoping they do
then I wouldn’t have to think of you
the past is just regret
that’s why I have to say

wasted
the drown my sorrows
wasted
swimming in drink
wasted
that way I don’t have to think

I’ll have another shot
hoping it’ll put me in the dark
don’t know how to express
all the loss I feel
that you won’t be near me
it’s all over now
but the drinking

wasted
the drown my sorrows
wasted
swimming in drink
wasted
that way I don’t have to think

(bridge)
when I’m sober
the pain is intense
can’t stay on the fence
but what can I say
maybe I was made this way

wasted
the drown my sorrows
wasted
swimming in drink
wasted
that way I don’t have to think
wasted
wasted
wasted
wasted

‘Cigarettes, Beer & Tears’ — #lyrics to a #country #pop song

Cigarettes, Beer & Tears
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

the pain inside never stops
the years pass on by
cigarettes, beer and tears
is all I got
long for your love
but it’s gone for good
as maybe it should

cigarettes, beer and tears
cigarettes, beer and tears
are my only friends I’m afraid
how long does it have to be this way
cigarettes, beer and tears
cigarettes, beer and tears

our love was once strong
but it was all a lie
you’re gone I have to admit
with a painful sigh
won’t regret another drink
while I have another smoke
the tears keep falling
into my beer

cigarettes, beer and tears
cigarettes, beer and tears
are my only friends I’m afraid
how long does it have to be this way
cigarettes, beer and tears
cigarettes, beer and tears

(bridge)
I was sober once
had you by my side
those were days of joy
now they’re gone I’m afraid
all I have is
cigarettes, beer and tears
cigarettes, beer and tears

cigarettes, beer and tears
cigarettes, beer and tears
are my only friends I’m afraid
how long does it have to be this way
cigarettes, beer and tears
cigarettes, beer and tears

‘Don’t Look Back’ – #lyrics to a #pop #rock #ballad

Don’t Look Back
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

keep your eyes on the prize
if you look back
you’ll taste salt
the bitterness will get you
and you’ll just be a pile
of guilt in the sand

don’t look back
is my refrain
don’t look back
the past is receding fast
history can’t be changed
believe me I’ve tried
don’t look back
don’t look back
don’t look back

in my dreams it’s all fixed
your love returns in a second
then I awake and have a drink
guilt for what could have been
is going to kill me in the end

don’t look back
is my refrain
don’t look back
the past is receding fast
history can’t be changed
believe me I’ve tried
don’t look back
don’t look back
don’t look back

(bridge)
the focus on the present
knowing that’s the right way to be
but my grief arises from soul
overcomes me yet again
and again and again

don’t look back
is my refrain
don’t look back
the past is receding fast
history can’t be changed
believe me I’ve tried
don’t look back
don’t look back
don’t look back

‘Hand of Fate’ –#lyrics to a #pop #rock song

Hand of Fate
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

don’t know what to say
much to my dismay
we all get it in the end
all we can do is smile
knowing how it all ends is in
the hand of fate

hand of fate is what I’m saying
it’s all around us in control
hand of fate is what I knowing
it throws us into the sky
when our time on earth passes on by
hand of fate
hand of fate
hand of fate

we’re here for a good time
not for a long time
we can’t fight the hand of fate
all we can do is strike a match
to illuminate the truth

hand of fate is what I’m saying
it’s all around us in control
hand of fate is what I knowing
it throws us into the sky
when our time on earth passes on by
hand of fate
hand of fate
hand of fate

(bridge)
our destiony isn’t set
I want to believe it’s true
is it possibly that I control
how it all ends
I fear that’s a lie
the hand of fate is too strong

hand of fate is what I’m saying
it’s all around us in control
hand of fate is what I knowing
it throws us into the sky
when our time on earth passes on by
hand of fate
hand of fate
hand of fate
