  • 04:28 Story Lyrics Away Too Long

    When I was a young girl
    Dreamin’ on a Star
    Left my Angel city
    To heal my crooked heart 
    Seeking out some silver wings
    To take me far away from me
    Every detour led me to
    A truth too close to see

    I’ve been away too long
    Nothing is familiar
    I’ve been away too long
    All the old seems new
    Now that I’m home

    Spending too much precious time 
    Tryin’ to get the perfect high
    When all I ever wanted was
    A little piece of mind

    I’ve been away too long
    Nothing is familiar
    I’ve been away too long
    All the old seems new
    Now that I’m home

    Change of Heart
    Changed my Mind
    Changed my World
    From the inside of my Soul

    I’ve been away too long
    Nothing is familiar
    I’ve been away too long
    All the old seems new

    I’ve been away too long
    Nothing is familiar
    I’ve been away too long
    All the old seems new
    Now that I’m home

    Now that I’m home
    Now that I’m home
    Now that I’m home

  • 05:46 Story Lyrics Gotta Take This Call

    My cell is ringin’ I gotta take this phone call hello yes

    That was my baby she said she loves me after all well alright

    Listen I couldn’t recover from our last fight now

    It had me tossin’ turnin’ through the night now

    She stole my sleep when she stormed out that door now

    She said she wasn't comin’ back no more but

    My cell is ringin’ I gotta take this phone call hello yes

    That was my baby she said she loves me after all well alright

    Listen one night without her it was just too much ah

    I crave her lovin’ I can't get enough now

    Her loves so good it makes you wanna scream loud

    Just let her kiss ya ahhhhh!

     

    Ooh Baby

    My cell is ringin’ I gotta take this phone call hello yes

    That was my baby she said she loves me after all well alright

    Listen I couldn’t recover from our last fight now

    It had me tossin’ turnin’ through the night now

    She stole my sleep when she stormed out that door now

    She said she wasn't comin’ back no more but

  • 04:11 Lyrics Don't Turn Me Away

     

    You’ve been keeping some kind of secret from me

    You won’t look me in the eyes but it’s easy to see.

     

     

     

    I know your time is precious just hear what I have to say

     

    If you’ve got some other lover I won’t stand in your way

     

    You can turn me around just Don’t Turn Me Away

     

     

     

    I’ve been keeping my feelings hidden from you

     

    I won’t lead you on no more I gotta tell you the truth

     

     

     

    I know your time is precious just hear what I have to say

     

    If you’ve got some other lover I won’t stand in your way

     

    You can turn me around just Don’t Turn Me Away

     

     

     

    Don’t Turn Me Away

     

     

     

    I know your time is precious just hear what I have to say

     

    If you’ve got some other lover I won’t stand in your way

     

    You can turn me around just Don’t Turn Me Away

     

     

     

    I know your time is precious just hear what I have to say

     

    If you’ve got some other lover I won’t stand in your way

     

    You can turn me around just Don’t Turn Me Away

     

    You can turn me around just Don’t Turn Me Away

     

  • 03:40 Lyrics You and Me

    Every time I look around

    The things I see get me down

    I just don’t want to go

    Through this crazy world alone

     

    Every time I see your face

    My worries fade away

    I know I want to stay

    Here and always feel this way

     

    Like the stars and nighttime sky

    Like the sand along tide

    We’re better together

    Can’t you see

    It’s always gonna be You and Me

     

    Like the stars and nighttime sky

    Like the sand along tide

    We’re better together

    Can’t you see

    It’s always gonna be

    Can’t you see

    It’s always gonna be

    Can’t you see

    It’s always gonna be You and Me

  • 06:17 Lyrics The Rain

    Losing my way at the fork I chose a dark road

    And I know that I can never turn back

    Pouring down rain

    These muddy waters are a welcome mat

    Slide my feet and wipe away my tracks

    So I won't complain about the rain

    Let the waters wash away my guilt

    My stains, my sins, my shame

    Oh - The Rain

     

    You sent me away and broke my chains

    Now I’m free from your shackles and you’re never gone hurt me again

    I’m risin’ up, you’re going down

    You’ll think about me when you’re dragged by the hellhounds

    Forever changed under this rain

    As the clouds drift away at the breaking of the day never be the same

     

    Haunting me from the other side

    The light in me has lost it's shine

    Dark smile in the shadow

    Thanking me for handing him my soul

     

    I won't complain about the rain

    Let the waters wash away my guilt, my stains,  my sins, my shame

    Oh - The Rain

    Forever changed under this rain

    As the clouds drift away at the breaking of the day never be the same

     

    You’ll think about me when you’re dragged by the hellhounds

    What have I done?

  • 04:09 Story Lyrics Too Fast Too Deep

    I just met the most beautiful creature

    Radiant as the sun in the sky

    She meditates on love and compassion.

    She opens her heart when she closes her eyes

     

    Electromagnetic vibrations reach her

    From me through the atmosphere

    So darlin’ lean into to the radio

    And let me whisper in your ear

     

    I can tell that you won't come free

    You’re surely gonna cost me

    My soul and my sanity

    ‘Cause I’m fallin’ Too Fast Too Deep

    Yeah I’m fallin’ Too Fast Too Deep

     

    I heard my friends talking about you

    They think I’m some kind of hero now

    So could you do me a favor?

    Keep your lovin’ arms on me when they’re around

    Ooh the state I’m in is of total bliss

    I don’t think I’ll ever miss

    The way I was before I had your kiss

     

    I can tell that you won't come free

    You’re surely gonna cost me

    My soul and my sanity

    ‘Cause I’m fallin’ Too Fast Too Deep

    Yeah I’m fallin’ Too Fast Too Deep

     

    What can you do when it's right as rain

    No time for excuses no time to explain

    Careful what you wish for - you just might get it

    And when you least expect it

     

    I can tell that you wont come free

    You’re surely gonna cost me

    My soul and my sanity

    ‘Cause I’m fallin’ Too Fast Too Deep

    Yeah I’m fallin’ Too Fast Too Deep

     

    I can tell that you wont come free

    You’re surely gonna cost me

    My soul and my sanity

    ‘Cause I’m fallin’ Too Fast Too Deep

    Yeah I’m fallin’ Too Fast Too Deep
