One Item or Less
Bret H. Hart - 8/14/1997

I love my wife a lot
It’s what we want (like it or not)
Don’t ask for much, her needs are few
“Just keep it right here between me and you.”

I’ve been tempted, I’ll admit it
Some folks like to rub your face in it
“Have some fun. She’ll never know.”
One for the money
Two for the show

I can only handle one item or less
Living without lies works the best, for me
One item or less
No muss. No fuss. No mess.

Some folks talk about nothing’ but baloney
Putting on airs, happy being phony
Every truth lived buys stock in the future
Every heart you break
Needs 50 feet of suture…

I’ve seen a lot of people climbin’ over that fence
Soon their hands were shakin’ and their faces looked tense
As they straddled two pickets labeled “Guilt” and “Fun”
Now they’re living in denial ’bout what they done done

I can only handle one item or less
Living without lies works the best, for me
One item or less
No muss. No fuss. No mess.

BRYAN C. SMITH (aka SONGBEAR) After going through a serious time of change in my life, I found my balance through my love of music. I started my songwriting, as I was learning just who I was, and what I really wanted in my life. Being part Native American, and following the teachings of the elders, has been very beneficial in helping me find my way along my own chosen path. and for that, I am thankful.


TINA HART: "Look In Your Eyes"

This song is from her 2004 CD "8 Slices of Life", her fourth CD release on HipWorks Productions.
Tina's songs do not hold back punches. She writes odes to human frailty, the vagaries of modern love, hard choice-making, parenting, and deep spiritual longing.
Tina Hart's roving "military brat" childhood steeped her in influences ranging from Cajun to Folk-Rock to raw porch music. Tina [then, Juvrud] performed in New England with Fertile Ground during the 1990's and recorded her first solo CD, "Planting That Seed in Their Heads", with future husband, Bret H. Hart producing, at Toad Hall Studio in 1997. Tina, Bret, Songbear, banjoist Jim Eanes, and percussion-madman Scotty (aka: Clang Quartet) Irving gigged in North Carolina in various configurations - The Harts, Barbwire Hearts, The Cat's Pants - between 1998-2004.
