The night I laid my eyes on you
felt everything around me move
Got nervous when you looked my way
But you knew all the words to say

Then your love slowly moved right in
All this time oh my love where you been

Mi amore don't you know
My love I want you so
Sugar you make my soul complete
Rapture tastes so sweet

I'm mesmerized in every way
You keep me in a state of daze
You're kisses make my skin feel weak
I'm always melting in your heat

Then I soar like a bird in the wind
Oh I glide as I'm flying through heaven

Since we connect behind closed doors
Spark this fire even more
No telling where we will be next
Surrender to your rapture arrest
Lay your head, let the slumber float
Can't resist, that's why words - I wrote
You knew me better than anyone ever
And I remember your very first letter
We were so young and all that we wanted was more
We fit each other like rebels on Harleys
and I knew how to answer your body
but at the speed that we drove we were bound to wash out

We flew rockets to the sun
Knowing we’d crash and burn
And that’s the risk we run
When you fall in love

I could read every word you were thinking
You gave me something I never was given
It was heaven and hell all at once as we laughed and cried
There always needs to be one that is willing
To throw a rope down to someone who’s slipping
But sometimes you gotta know when to let it go

I would not change a thing
All the love, all the pain
You were my everything
It will always remain
It was all worth it...
If you ask me, I will say it
You make me smile, it’s contagious

And in your eyes, I can see it
Cause your heart is the greatest

I can’t be without you
So don’t go anywhere
You show me love like no one else
Has done yet
And with the road ahead
This is the beginning
Of this love story

When I’m with you, I am taken
With a feeling the feeling that you’ve been chosen

What a longing, it’s the best thing
In a long time I’m not broken
I never knew a love
A love that could be sweeter
No matter what my mind says
You're music gives me fever
the moment that we danced
Your arms felt like a cradle
And when you took my hand
I was no longer able

It never felt so right before
I need to be with you much more
I can't believe this kind of fate
We can runaway...

Is it love?
Is it love?
Is it love?
Is it love?

I'm always in a spell
even when I'm sleeping
You're always on my mind
I hope that I'm not dreaming

If I am let me stay asleep
Don't wake me up I feel complete
I never want to feel it end
What a lovely moment

I wanna give you my love
over time over time
I wanna make love to you
over time over time
I wanna be right next to you
over time over time
I wanna be in love with you
over time over time
Don’t you talk; you know I’ve heard it all before
That I’m deserving of something more
You think I’m worth it but you’re not the one willing to give it

I don’t need you to make me a promise
Although it’d be some wishful thinking
But you know I think real and it’s too up in the air to not bother me

I believe I know I will find it
All I need is written within me
I was only asking if you’d ride with me
Through this thing called life

I won’t stop it’s not a question
I’ll take off without directions
With you or not, I’d get over and forget
If you wouldn’t come with

All you say is you want me with you
Go on and on but how is it true
Forgive me for this doubt
If we build a home in sand, it’ll only wash away

Good things don’t always come
Knocking at your door
Good things come to those
Who want to share with that someone
Don’t you, don’t you, want to come along?
One day, one day it’s here and another it’s gone
I’ve been holding back
I’ve been holding back

You're like a moving star
I can't get close enough to you
Been months I got your call
Our falling out, we slipped right into

You were an ace for me
My crazy heart got hold of you
Your hand called every bluff
I had to fold and let it go

Since I saw you last
I've been holding back
I figured I should
Do just that
I thought I'd crack
But I smiled instead
I'll let you
Read the fine print

I walk a line between
The thoughts of now and where I've been
Today the grass is green
I've got it all, so why reminisce?

I'm just a mermaid who is
Not content with waveless oceans
Sometimes the gusty wind
Is what I need to feel again

Read between the lines
For what got left behind
But I can't say, I'll hold it down
The weight of seeing you now
I'm so tired and I keep on hearing
the same old things from you
just be quiet; save your stories
for that someone new
Every time I try - all I hear is
that you haven't changed
Take a break now quit explaining
I'm about to make a move
There you go - you go again
What's the point in being friends?
Enough is enough; I'm a big girl
if you need to go just tell me now
When did you check out?
When did you sign off?
I didn't get the notice
how could you do this
Wish I knew
thought I knew you better...but whatever
I gave you everything
a girl could give you
It took me by surprise
I let time slip right
through my fingers
Letting you just tell me lies
We should've ended it a
whole lot sooner
but sometimes we can't see
A broken heart is
hanging from the ceiling
Right between you and me
Yeah, here we go, we go again
What's the point in
being friends?
Enough's enough, if we're
not in love
You need to let me go
quit holding on
When did you check out
when did you sign off
I didn't get the notice
how could you do this
Wish I knew though I
knew you better...but whatever
Now that you're checked out
now that we're signed off
Didn't you get the notice
that I am now through this
Wish you knew though
you knew me better but whatever
Baby baby tell me why
our feelings changed
I recall the days you
were my only friend
Baby tell me why we let
this fade away
I will miss you and the
love we used to share
How do you always know what I will say?
You seem to know me in the clearest way
I want to run and hide, keep you from finding me
You shouldn’t see, what is my mystery

But with the timing right
It could be paradise
To do this now
Would not be right

So stay away from me
You’re better off to stay as far from loving me
Just stay a fantasy
In the dark, in the night and in my dreams

I was just fine, yes I was fine I thought
I didn’t think that I would get so lost
To have and not to hold and to pretend I’m cold
It is a lie ‘cause I melt every time

Stay... away from me
Jack loves Jane but Jane loves Joe
But how could she ever let Jack go
It’s obvious everyone can see
The trouble with this trilogy
Hearts don’t come…
In sets of three

So what do they do now?
There’s only one way to find out
It’s time to pick your prize and
It better be right, it better be right

This triangle has to untangle
Got to let it go
This triangle is too much to handle
Got to let it go

Jane loves Joe, but Joe’s with Jill
But Jane wants to be with Joe still
It’s bad enough it breaks Jack’s heart
It’s tearing their whole world apart
But how do you stop
When it’s gone so far
Sweet September
Where'd you go
I was hoping
Someone knows
Have you missed me
was I there
I was dreaming
Someone cared

Now here me out
I was the one
I waited for you
To get what is due

I want it from you
So will you give it up
I want you to move
Can you feel the love

I could haunt you
listen clear
Remember my voice
In you ears
In your bedroom
In your car
In the movies
In your heart

So feel me out
Cause I'm still the one
I gave it to you
and still know how to

I won't let you
Forget my name
I am part of
The bigger game
I can load it
In your mind
I won't ever
fade in time

Have you heard me now
Cause I'll be the one
I'll take it from you
however you choose
Why the long face?
I don’t want to hear you out
In the old days
I would let you run your mouth
But it’s a different day now
Got someone different here now
I know you feel like I let you down
Oh but you pushed me out

You can try to point the finger at me
But you knew this would happen
I would move on and find someone who would see
I was worth keeping
I was worth keeping

I know that inside
Everything you meant was well
But from the outside
One would think you never felt
Anything towards me
You left me feeling empty
But everything still turned out fine, no thanks to you

When a glass breaks it never goes back the same
You can vow eternity but I will never take your name
Everything we ever had best to keep it in the past
Everything we ever felt I don’t want to remember back

You can try to point the finger at me
But you knew this would happen
I would move on and find someone who would see
I was worth keeping
What is it now?
You just want to pick a fight
Is something on your mind?
Baby, we can make it right

I’m sorry I lied but you wouldn’t understand it
I didn’t really plan it
Oh my, my, I really did it this time

I was at the wrong place at the wrong time
I should’ve left before that last glass of wine
Wish I hadn’t done it, it didn’t mean a thing
Please believe I made a mistake

Answer the door
I know you’re there, just open up
I’ll wait out in the hall
I’ll stay until morning comes
I’m sorry I lied but you wouldn’t understand it
I didn’t really plan it
Oh my, my, I can’t lose you this time
All your promises, I've said before
They're only words to fill the space, you won't explore

All your promises, I'm so naive
Because I wanted you and wanted to believe

Where? Where do we go, where do we go from here?
After all the thoughtless things we said
Where, where do we go, where do we go from here?
Now that all the- all the love is dead

You held the secret key straight to my soul
I gave it all to you- you took more than you know
Oh the bitter truth is that I'm better off without you
And I still I know, to let you go will take me years to do
Once upon a time there lived a girl
She knew what she wanted from the world
In the brown eyes they could see
A fire that burned like summer heat
Nothing but trouble so they thought
They just watched her from afar
If they looked close that flame was a tear
But they hadn't seen a girl so fierce
You better run you better run you don't
know what you're in for
You don't know you don't know what you're
in you're in for
You better run you better run
Cause you don't know what you're in for
Once upon a time there lived a boy
Who would only play with real life toys
One hand here and one hand there
No attachments this man wears
A smile so sweet it's hard to see
That there's no fruit growing in his tree
Once a fool he learned long ago
It's better to burn than feel the cold
Play with fire and you will get burned
There's no doubt in my mind who you are
There's no thought other than yours
My heart felt like a rose in the graveyard
But you dug and I knew you belonged

You found
What was profound
What was around
You and I

You're the one
Where I belong
I was alone
Till you came along

A romance fairy take from the start
I knew I wasn't alone in this world
It's true
All because you
Wouldn't let go
Of you and I

You opened all the doors to the fortune
I'll give you all the loving in gold
Woke up in the morning with
My broken heart still sound asleep
I knew our star was losing light
Long before we could ever see
All I could hold on to was a fleeting little reverie
All you ever strummed for me was half an empty melody

I was hoping it would change
And turn back this numbing page
But a broken stringed guitar
Can only be only be played for so long

I don’t know how to pretend
We tried so hard
All the feelings felt within
We tried so long
On that day
You left me standing there
Things we said were very strange
They were something like a dream
On that day
I watched you walk away

Maybe what we needed was
To turn away our bitter pride
We add fuel to fire with words
That cut like jagged knives
Falling downhill is the only
Way out of an avalanche
Can we make amends
And maybe just pretend like all is well

I know one day it will change
I’ll look back on this cold day
Fix this broken stringed guitar
And play myself a brand new song
My heels are high and I'm thinking about talking a walk
I'm thinking here is only dragging me down
I'm not afraid, I'm gonna take you on
Get a taste of your medicine now
Cause this place
Is so cold
I can't stay
Under your hold
Anybody knows when, you use me, you'll
lose me
You're ...Never gonna learn til
You loose me, you lose me
Do I look to you
Like someone to use
Or am I to you only
Something to lose
My arms are tired and thinking about putting
you down
You're expensive, that's how princesses are
It's so strange, have I not given enough
Get a taste of life without me around
You've changed
From you heels to your soul
Who's using who?
Don't trip on your way home
You dream like a king
But your pride is a fool
I'm not the one who's ego
is so easily bruised
You say you are too strong
To be used, looking like a victim
At me the accused
But wait, I didn't want it this way
But you're making me wrong
And it's not about blame
