Drowning

Don't pretend you're sorry
I know you're not
You know you got the power
To make me weak inside
Girl you leave me breathless
But it's okay 'cause
You are my survival
Now hear me say
I can't imagine life
Without your love
Even forever don't seem
Like long enough
CHORUS:
'Cause everytime I breathe
I take you in
And my heart beats again
Baby I can't help it
You keep me
Drowning in your love
Everytime I try to rise above
I'm swept away by love
Baby I can't help it
You keep me
Drowning in your love

Maybe I'm a drifter
Late at night
'Cause I long for the safety
Of flowing freely
In your arms
I don't need another lover
It's not for me
'Cause only you can save me
Oh can't you see
I can't imagine life
Without your love
And even forever don't seem
Like long enough

Repeat chorus

Go on and pull me under
Cover me with dreams, yeah
Love me mouth to mouth now
You know I can't resist
'Cause you're the air
That I breathe

Everytime I breathe
I take you in
And my heart beats again
Baby I can't help it
You keep me
Drowning in your love
Everytime I try to rise above
I'm swept away by love
And baby I can't help it
You keep me
Drowning your love

Baby I can't help it
Keep me drowning
In your love
I keep drowning
In your love
Baby I can't help it
Can't help it no, no

Repeat chorus

The Call

Hi, it’s me… what’s up baby?
I’m sorry, listen, I’m gonna be late tonight so don’t stay up and wait for me, ok?"
"Where are you?"
"Say that again… you’re really dropping out… I think my battery must be low…
listen, if you can hear me, we’re going to a place nearby alright… gotta go!"

Let me tell you the story ‘bout the call that changed my destiny
Me and my boys went out just to end up in misery
Was about to go home when there she was standing in front of me
I said hi, I got a little place nearby, wanna go?
I should’ve said no, someone’s waiting for me
But I called my girl up and said…

CHORUS

Listen baby I’m sorry
Just wanna tell you don’t worry
I will be late, don’t stay up and wait for me
Say again… you’re dropping out… my battery is low
Just so you know, we’re going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

Now two years gone, nothing gets won<
I can’t take it back, what’s done is done
One of her friends found out that she wasn’t my only one
And it eats me from inside that she’s not by my side
Just because I made that call and lied

CHORUS- repeat

Let me tell you the story ‘bout the call that changed my destiny
Me and my boys went out just to end up in misery
Was about to go home when there she was standing there in front of me
I said hi, I got a little place nearby… gotta go!

CHORUS– repeat

The Shape of My Heart

Baby please try to forgive me
Stay here don't put out the glow
Hold me now, don't bother
If every minute it makes me weaker
You can save me from the man that I've become
Oh yeah

Chorus

Lookin' back on the things I've done
I was trying to be someone
Play my part & kept ya in the dark
Now let me show you the shape of my heart

Sadness is beautiful
Loniness is tragical
So help me, I can't win this war, oh no
Touch me now, don't bother
If every second it makes me weaker
You can save me from the man I've become


Chorus

I'm here with my confession
Got nothing to hide no more
I don't know where to start
But to show you the shape of my heart

I'm looking back on things I've done
I never wanna play the same old part
Keep you in the dark
Now let me show you the shape of my heart

Chorus x 2

Show you the shape of my heart

Get Another Boyfriend

Let’s talk about one baby
You gotta hear me out
Do you really wanna be the last to know
What it’s all about

Let’s talk about two, you say
He’s the essence of your life
But he’ll eat you up from inside slow
And then he doesn’t wanna know
I’m telling you, he’ll eat you up from inside
And then he doesn’t wanna know

CHORUS

Listen, I mean it
There’s nothing that he’s worthy of
He’s just another player playing in the name of love
I’ve seen enough, now this must come to an end
Get another boyfriend

Let’s talk about what he’s done
To become your number one
Or was it all the promises of diamonds, pearls and party dresses that turned you on
I’ve seen it before, don’t take anymore
Three, two you’re through for sure
Just go get on with your life
Stop acting like you’ve given up
I’m telling you to go get on with your life
Stop acting like you’ve given up

CHORUS – repeat

Hear me out
You must know
What it’s all about, baby
That he’s just a player in love
This must come to an end
Get another boyfriend

CHORUS – repeat

Shinning Star

CHORUS

You’re my shining star
That is what you are
There is no one like you baby
Angels everywhere
Everytime you’re near
You will always be my baby

Baby when you do the things you do
I wanna be close to you
‘Cause I need to feel your every move, oh
Baby I can never say how much
I need your touch, I can’t get enough
‘Cause you know what to do to turn me on, yeah

CHORUS – repeat

Baby you’re as close as close can get
And baby you know I’d let
Every single part of me be yours, ooh yeah
It doesn’t matter if the phone might ring
‘Cause I won’t hear a thing when I’m in your arms
‘Cause you know what to do to turn me on

CHORUS – repeat

I’ve never been so satisfied
With anything in my entire life
‘Cause you are doing everything so right
Oh, oh baby
I’ve never been so satisfied
With anything in my entire life
‘Cause you are doing everything so right
Oh, oh baby

CHORUS – repeat

You know that I adore you
Wanna be there everyday for you
To satisfy your every needs my baby, baby
You know that I adore you
Wanna be there everyday for you
To satisfy your every needs my baby, baby

CHORUS – repeat

This I Promise You(With Everything I Am)

It’s in the silences
The words you never say
I see it in your eyes
Always starts the same way
It seems like everyone we know is breaking up
Does anybody ever stay in love anymore

CHORUS

I promise you
From the bottom of my heart
I will love you ‘til death do us part
I promise you
As a lover and a friend
I will love you like I’ll never love again
With everything I am

I see you look at me
When you think I’m not aware
You’re searching for clues
Of just how deep my feelings are
How do you prove the sky is blue
The ocean’s wide
All I know is what I feel
When I look into your eyes

CHORUS - repeat

There are no guarantees
That’s what you always say to me
And late at night I feel the tremble in your touch
What I’m trying to say to you
I never said to anyone

CHORUS – repeat

…with everything I am

The Answer to Our Life

You see me sitting here
A smile upon my face
The time has come but you know that it’s not too late
There’s been too many things
Together we have seen
It’s not that hard if we start to believe
And we’re not gonna take anymore
Can we try to erase all the pain
So please…

Chorus

Show me a reason, give me a sign
Tell me the way we fall out of line
Is it today or is it tonight we’ll find
The answer to our life

This world is not at ease
We seem to hide the truth
Thinking there’s only so much we can really do
It’s up to you and me
To fix our destiny
The jury’s here, so let’s take the stand
And we’re not gonna take anymore
Can we try to erase all the pain
So please…

Chorus-Repeat

So tell me why we have to cry (and not try)
When there’s so many things we can do
To help this troubled world start anew

I need a reason, I need a sign
There’s no turning back, I’m here by your side
Is it today or maybe tonight, we’ll find
The answer to our life

Show me the way
Give me a sign
Tell me the way we fall out of line
Is it today, is it tonight
The answer to our life

CHORUS – repeat

Everyone

We’ve been through days of thunder
Some people said we don’t belong
They try to pull us under

But here we stand together and we’re millions strong
Let’s get on with the show (let’s get started)
Turn the lights down low (turn the lights down low)
You were there from start (you were there)
We know who you are

And this one goes out to…

CHORUS

Everyone, everyone, everyone
So this one goes out to you
Everyone
We’re standing strong
‘Cause of what you’ve done
And this one goes out to you

We’ve been inside the circus
We took the pleasure with the pain
I guess there’s something about us
Whatever comes around we’ll always stay the same, oh yeah
Let’s get on with the show (oh let’s get started)
Turn the lights down low (turn the lights down low)
You were there from the start (you were there)
We know who you are
We know who you are

CHORUS - repeat

Now we’re minutes away
‘Til it’s time to play
Our heartbeats are rising, they’re letting you in
Time for the show to begin

We, we’re standing strong ‘cause of what you’ve done
This one goes out to you, you, you
You make us feel like we’ve just begun
And this one goes out to you

CHORUS - repeat

line32-15.gif (15138 bytes)
More than that

I can see that you’ve been crying
You can’t hide it with a lie
What’s the use in you denying
That what you have is wrong
I heard him promise you forever
But forever’s come and gone
Baby, he would say whatever
It takes to keep you blind
To the truth between the lines, oh…

CHORUS

I will love you more than that
I won’t say the words
Then take them back
Don’t give loneliness a chance
Baby listen to me when I say
I will love you more than that

Baby, you deserve much better
What’s the use in holding on
Don’t you see it’s now or never
‘Cause I just can’t be friends
Baby knowing in the end, that..

CHORUS - repeat

There’s not a day that passes by
I don’t wonder why we haven’t tried
It’s not too late to change your mind
So take my hand, don’t say goodbye
CHORUS - repeat

line32-15.gif (15138 bytes)

Time

I know that I, I can’t believe
Just what the path has brought me
To the man I wanna be
And I know that we have had some times
That we can’t forget the struggle
‘Cause we have so far to go
I know we have changed but
Change can be so good
So let’s not forget why it’s understood that…

CHORUS

Time
N Look where we are
And what we’ve been through
Time
Sharing our dreams<
Every little bit of life with you
Time it goes on and on everyday, baby
Time is what it is come what may<

I remember when mom used to say
That things are getting better
And you’ll soon be on your way
Remember those days, that we would sing at the drop of a dime
Way back when nothing else mattered
I know we’ve changed but
Change can be so good
Oh, so let’s not forget why it’s understood that…

CHORUS<- repeat

So here we are
And we’ll always stay together
And through it all you know
We owe it all to you, you, you and you
(Time goes on, never stops, it keeps on)

CHORUS– repeat

Time, it goes on and on everyday
Time is what it is, come what may, come what may

Not for me

I was looking for something
On a crime scene where you’re in too deep
I found a note with his number
It’s just another clue (that leads to you)
I got a little suspicious
I got a feeling, that you ain’t true to me
I should have known better
Than to buy your lies (your sweet disguise)
Yeah, you can fool anyone
But I’ve got eyes to see
That you’re not for me, babe

CHORUS

No no, uh uh
Things will never be the same again with you
No no, uh uh
Now I know what it’s coming to
No no, uh uh
‘Cause if you think that it’s the way
That love should be, let me tell you
It’s not for me

No, I don’t wanna be part of your screenplay
Just tell me did you rehearse on me
Gimme the story
Baby who’s to win (me or him)
Caught in the middle and Im tired of
Your games of hide-and-seek
I’m getting the feeling
That it’s time for me to leave
You can fool anyone
But I’ve got eyes to see
That you’re not for me, baby

CHORUS - repeat

I said no, no
I had enough of your talk and your games
And it won’t go away
Justify my reasons to say, reasons to say…

CHORUS - repeat

line32-15.gif (15138 bytes)

Yes I will

I open my eyes, I see your face
I cannot hide, I can’t erase
The way you make me feel inside
You complete me girl, that’s why
Something about you makes me feel
Baby my heart wants to reveal
I’m down on my knees, I’m asking you
Say these three words I wanna hear from you

CHORUS

Yes I will
Take your hand and walk with you
Yes I will
Say these three words that promise to
Yes I will
Give you everything you need and someday start a family with you
Yes I will
Take your hand and walk with you
Yes I will
Baby, I promise you
Yes I will
Give you everything you need and someday start a family with you
Oh yeah, yes I will

This is no ordinary love
And I can never have enough
Of all the things you’ve given to me
You’re my heart, my soul, my everything
Every night I thank you Lord
For giving me the strength to love her
More and more each day
I promise her as long as I hear those three words

CHORUS - repeat

I stand beside you in everything you do
Wherever you go, whatever you do
Baby, I’ll be there
As God is my witness, I will carry this through
‘Til death do us part, I promise to you…

CHORUS - repeat

line32-15.gif (15138 bytes)

It’s true

Even a lover makes a mistake sometimes
Like any other
Fall out and lose his mind
And I’m sorry for the things I did
For your teardrops over words I said
Can you forgive me and open your heart once again, oh yeah

CHORUS - repeat

It’s true
I mean it
From the bottom of my heart
Yeah, it’s true
Without you I would fall apart

Whatever happened
I know that I was wrong, oh yes
Can you believe me
Maybe your faith is gone
But I love you and I always will
So I wonder if you want me still
Can you forgive me and open your heart once again, oh yeah

CHORUS - repeat

I’d do anything to make it up to you
So please understand
And open your heart once again

CHORUS - repeat

line32-15.gif (15138 bytes)

How fall in love in Love with You

Remember when
We never needed each other
The best of friends
Like sister and brother
We understood
We’d never be
Alone

Those days are gone
Now I want you so much
The night is long
And I need your touch
Don’t know what to say
Never meant to feel this way
Don’t wanna be alone tonight

CHORUS

What can I do to make you mine
Falling so hard, so fast this time
What did I say, what did you do
How did I fall in love with you

I hear your voice
And I start to tremble
Brings back the child
That I resemble
I cannot pretend
That we can still be friends
Don’t wanna be alone tonight

CHORUS - repeat

I wanna say this right
And it has to be tonight
Just need you to know
I don’t wanna live this lie
I don’t wanna say goodbye
With you I wanna spend the rest of my life

CHORUS - repeat

What can I do to make you mine
Falling so hard, so fast this time
Everything’s changed, we never knew
How did I fall in love with you
