The RA-6600 Lyrics


Followed a Boy

Released January 24, 2017

Followed A Boy
(D. Olivas)

I followed a boy.
I followed a boy.
It isn't hard to do.

I followed a boy.
I followed a boy.
and you can do it, too.

You can follow him to Oklahoma.
You can follow him to Florida.
You can come back to Tennessee,
Just like me.

I followed a boy.
I followed a boy.
It isn't hard to do.

I followed a boy.
I followed a boy.
and you can do it, too.

You can watch him chase a younger woman.
You can watch her take your place.
You can hope that he'll see,
Just like me.
I followed a boy.
I followed a boy.
It isn't hard to do.

I followed a boy.
I followed a boy.
and you can do it, too.

You can keep yourself alone forever.
You can feel lost and through.
You can say, "Never again."
But then you wouldn't meet
Someone new, just like you.

I followed a boy.
I followed a boy.
It isn't hard to do.

I followed a boy.
I followed a boy.
and he led me here to you.

Stay
(D. Olivas)

She's 17
She starts her senior year.

She's got a job
Waiting tables in here.

She's got a boyfriend,
Been together 2 years.

She wears a ring,
But it's not his.

Baby boy bracelet
Up around her wrist.

Says here he comes,
Get ready for it.

And the sun is shining all around.
The light is falling down.
Lift him up into my arms,
Where he can stay.
She says it's obvious
He was not planned.

She says she's happy,
But mom and dad.

She knows when the baby's born
They'll both be glad.

It's hard to say
What happens next.

There's so much
That you don't expect.

You do what you do
and you get what you get.

And the sun is shinning all around.
The light is falling down.
Lift him up into my arms,
Where he can stay.

Take A Look Around
(D. Olivas)

I really loved your baby blues.
I really loved the things you'd do.
I gave you everything you wanted me to.
I was always there and ready for you.

The summer's passed and gray and fading.
We had a blast when we were dating.
But someone else out there had a hold on you.
I turned away and that's when I lost you.

Take a look around.
Think it over.
Take a look around at me.

I never really liked your friends.
I never wanted you to have them.
You always acted like you were a jerk
When you came home from them late after work.

And all the times when you went missing.
I never knew who you were kissing
I always thought that it was only me.
My god how could I be so naive.

Take a look around.
Think it over.
Take a look around at me.

I was 17 and I was an angel
Who held you, loved you, saved you,
from every little thing out there but strangers.
But I caught you having fun.

Take a look around.
Think it over.
Take a look around at me.

Once Upon a Time
(D. Olivas/M. Olivas)

Once upon a time,
We were more than friends,
That's where this story begins.

You and me
In a freeze frame.
Me in love,
But then when he came

Into the circle,
He got your attention,
Breaking my heart
Was never your intention.

You could have your pick
Of anyone you wanted.
Why make up your mind
Before you'd even started.

I remember
Pretending to sleep
so I could watch you
Make a fool out of me.

I'd been phased out.
I'd been far flung.
I'd been two timed,
But I was young.

Once upon a time,
Right before we met,
I didn't want anyone,
But I hadn't seen you, yet.

Then you walked in,
Flashed across the room,
I had never seen anything like you.

Then he came in
Like a boxer.
Thought he could beat me;
Thought he was faster.

He was pretty quick.
He hit pretty hard.
He taught me a thing or two;
He taught me that I lost.

I remember
Pretending to sleep
so I could watch you
Make a fool out of me.

I'd been phased out.
I'd been far flung.
I'd been two timed,
But I was young.

Cool Kids
(D. Olivas/M. Olivas)

I don't get why
You keep hanging out
with all the cool kids.
I don't get why
you keep thinking
They will help you keep hid
Everything they're telling me
That you did.

Telling me all about the thing
You say I'm not.
And all about the things
That I don't got.
And how I disappoint you,
Blah, blah, blah.

You're an emotional girl,
But me I'm a human being in everything.

No one knows
How hard it is
To wait until the cool kids
Have their day, and
Finish taking turns, and
Then you get
Whatever is left over
By the cool kids.

And you push me
To the side when you see them.
And you won't let me
Back inside again
Until your disappointment
Falls on them.

You're an emotional girl,
But me I'm a human being in everything.
