Shout It (I’m Coming Out)!
LYRICS

Well you think I don’t have what it takes
You think I’ll always stay in second place
(Girl why could you never see, all the possibilities)

And you sure got all the reasons why
It ain’t gon’ work out just the way I planned
(Seems you were not listening to that voice deep within)

Can’t let fear define my actions, steal my dreams and paralyze me
I’m gon’ break free from this cage of insecurity because I’ve learned to love me

So I shout it!  (I’m coming out!)

Don’t matter what has knocked me down, picking myself up is all that counts
(Dust yourself off.  It builds character)
Don’t matter who has done me wrong, it only makes me stronger
(Look out now she’s coming at ya)

Try to make a fool of me and take advantage of my inexperience
I laugh loudest now
You can’t shake my faith
No, not a chance

Shout it!  (I’m coming out!)

If I don’t know what I’m worth
Who’ll put my best interest first?
I’ve paid my dues
Followed misguided rules
Now finally it’s my turn
My voice will be heard

I’m ready to soar
You can’t stop me
I’ve been set free
I shout it loud and clear

Give Me Love
LYRICS

This song is about my baby

My baby got an old rusty car
And it leak gas from the carborator
When it cold can’t even open the door
But I don’t care ‘cause I love what’s in his heart

He give me love
There ain’t nobody else
Who can give me love
He’s better than the rest
Give me love
Never disrespect me
Give me love
He’ll always get my best
‘Cause he give me love
Real good love

My baby don’t have expensive clothes
And he can’t find matching socks in his bureau
When he walk you see the holes in his soles
But I don’t care, I love him even more

He give me love
So unselfishly
Give me love
He’s so good to me
Give me love
Every night and every day
Give me love
I can’t count the ways
That he give me love
Sweet sweet love

My baby got his goals and his dreams
He knows his situation’s temporary
One day we gonna sail on the sea
In his yacht that he gon’ name after me

Silver Linings and Rainbows
LYRICS

I remember the day you said goodbye
You told me to be strong, “please don’t cry.
Can’t take you where I’m going,
I’ve got to take this train alone”.

Now I’m stronger every day
Since you went away
Feeling less emptiness inside
As the time goes by
Sorrow will subside
Cause I know after the storm
I can see the silver linings and rainbows

Silver Linings and Rainbows

It feels like you’re right here with me
I see your smile, hear your laugh, feel your energy
Though your sand slipped through the hourglass
My memories of you will last

I can still hear you say my name in your special way
Just like it was yesterday
You’ll forever be so precious to me
And loved so tenderly

Now I’m stronger every day
Since you went away
Feeling less emptiness inside
As the time goes by
Sorrow will subside
Cause I know after the storm

Silver linings and rainbows

Sleep in the Bed You Made
LYRICS

You took him for granted and didn’t appreciate
He never asked you where you’d been or why you’re home so late
Anything you needed was his duty
You were his Cleopatra, his Nefertiti
You didn’t realize the good thing you had
Pastures were greener on the other side
You packed your bags, jumped in your ride and left him alone to
Sleep in the bed you made

You made your choice, now girl you’ll have to live with it
You made your bed, now girl you’ll have to lie in it

Said he wasn’t man enough for you
Wanted a body builder, at least 6 foot 2
Well you got your Hulk, your Schwarzenegger
No back rubs, no flowers, no romance ever
Now you have a change of heart
The mistake you made’s tearing you apart
Wanna get him back, make a new start and bring him back home to
Sleep in the bed you made

You made your choice, now girl you’ll have to live with it
You made your bed, now girl you’ll have to lie in it

Now you’re making your move on him
You keep coming around to see him
He’s wondering what’s on your mind
Cause you’re much too cruel to be kind
All of a sudden you’re saccharin sweet
Inviting him to the movies
But the next time you call, it’s my voice you’ll greet
Girl, it’s time you
Sleep in the bed you made

You made your choice, now girl you’ll have to live with it
You made your bed, now girl you’ll have to lie in it

I am Your Woman
LYRICS

Sound of your voice wakes me from day dreaming
Wondering where I would be if it weren’t for your belief in me
Lord knows how grateful I am to have finally found you
When I was jaded and my hopes of love had faded
Your love is unequal to anything I ever knew

You love me as I am
With you tall I stand
You are my man
And I am your woman

You shield me from harm
Give me strong shoulders to lean on
You right every wrong
Because I am your woman

It’s so easy to love during the good times
It’s the hard times that prove if your feelings are bonafide
We’ve had our share of life disappointments
But our bond can’t be broken
Our fate has been chosen
Skies in our horizon are blue
Together there is nothing we can’t do

When you need someone to hold
And you can’t carry your load
I will help you cope
I am your woman

Your most loyal fan
I stand by your side
And I wear your name with pride
I am your woman

Nothing compares to the love we share
Never in my life have I felt so alive
Every man needs someone to share his dreams
Together we’ll succeed, to make ours reality

Caught in My Web
LYRICS

When I see you looking at me that way
I feel a burning inside
Can’t extinguish the fire you ignited
The anticipation of your love is driving me wild

Baby I can make your heart palpitate
Baby I’m the rapture I know you crave
When I hold you close you’ll be powerless
Won’t resist the pure bliss of my kiss

With the touch of her hand
You’ll be at her command
And you’re caught in her web of desire
She’ll siphon your strength
Make your defenses melt
Then you’re caught in her web of desire

You awaken this passion in me
Like never before
Oh baby, body hot, taut and yearning
I am yours
I want to be riding the waves that lead to your shore

Baby I’ll seduce you with my caress
I’ll arouse emotions you can’t suppress
Temperature rising, sweat in the heat
Ecstasy between the sheets

When her force is released
You’ll elicit her needs
‘Cause you’re caught in her web of desire
She’s like a magnet
She attracts and compels
Then you’re caught in her web of desire

With the touch of her hand
You’ll be at her command
And you’re caught in her web of desire
She’ll siphon your strength
Make your defenses melt
Then you’re caught in her web of desire

Look into my eyes my darling
Let my pleasure hypnotize you
I will satisfy your every dream

Don’t try to escape me I know you’ll be back for some more

Baby you and me is a fit like a glove
The way I excite you, you can’t get enough
I provoke senses deep in your soul
I’m the one that makes you lose control

Man with the Heart of Gold
LYRICS

She was just a little girl so nobody explained
She was too young to understand
Why her mommy didn’t stay
Told herself if she was good and put her toys away
Life would go back to the way it was
Before that fateful day

Don’t cry my dear, I’m always near

Said the man with the heart of gold
I am here to take you in from the cold
I’m the man with the heart of gold
Don’t you fear, I’ll make this house a home

He was just 18 years old when he heard the doctor say
There was something going wrong inside
But at the early stage
Gathered all his courage, looked his challenge in the face
And when the pain was too much to bear
He closed his eyes and prayed

Don’t cry my dear, I’ll be right here

Said the man with the heart of gold
I am here to take you in from the cold
I’m the man with the heart of gold
Don’t you fear, I will give you hope

Looking in the mirror I’m proud to see
The man with the heart of gold is in me
And the brave young man and little girl
Now have found the love they so deserve

He’s the man, with the heart of gold
He is here to take you in from the cold
He’s the man, with the heart of gold
Don’t you fear, he’ll never leave you alone

Ain’t it Good
LYRICS

Where did all the joy go? Where are we headed?
Are we moving so fast that we forgot what matters?
Everywhere I turn, there’s no escaping
On TV, in the papers
More bad news, devastation

I wanna be like a child, curious and carefree
I wanna chase butterflies and run through the fields
I wanna revel in the light that’s all around me, ‘cause I believe

We laugh, we cry
We dream and we learn to trust our hearts
And love never dies
Ain’t it good to be alive

Funny how we’re blind to life’s many blessings
See only what we want to see
So the glass is half-empty
There you are baby, remind me of a truth
Look how far we have come
Against the odds we are one

I love who you are
Heaven sent you to me
To show me what love is meant to be
Unconditional
How magical, incredible

We laugh, we cry
We dream and we learn to trust our hearts
And love never dies
Ain’t it good to be alive

Ain’t it good to watch the sun go down and talk to your best friend
Aint it good to turn the music way up loud
To hear your favorite song again
Kiss in the dark, walk in the park
Sing in the rain, catch snowflakes
Made my choice to rejoice
See the beauty that abounds

Say a Prayer
LYRICS

Let me tell you a secret
I know you from another time and place
We have a special connection
A link in a chain that won’t break

And I feel it in my soul even though we’re apart
I’m in your thoughts
Like you’re in my heart
Time after time we’re more one than not, in spirit

Every night I’m near you
Can you feel me?
Every night I call you
Can you hear me?
I say a prayer for you
I say a prayer for you

Never told you I love you
Afraid to express what I felt
Now I’m telling you I’m sorry
I was doing the best I knew then

Your smile shines on me from the picture I framed
I overflow
God is great
He gives me the chance to live another day to see you

Every night I’m near you
Can you feel me?
Every night I call you
Can you hear me?
I say a prayer for you
I say a prayer for you

If the mountain’s too high baby I’ll climb it for you
And if you lose your step and falter I’m here to catch you
Doesn’t matter how near or far I know for sure
You’re the sun in my sky forever more
I love you so

The song
LYRICS

Well it’s 2:47 in the morning and I’m pounding my brain trying to squeeze some meaningful profound lyrics out of my ass
Is the -28 outside slowly seeping inside into my subconscious?
“Severe brain freeze warning in effect”

What about love?
I love you
I lost my love
I don’t love you anymore

What about money?
What could I say that someone hasn’t already said?
Can’t make you happy but can get you some nice stuff

Trying too hard with the message wasting time
I’ve got nothing to prove
Throw in my cards
Do you really care or do you just want a killer groove

Hey life is a dance floor
Come out and party
Take some chances
Before the song ends

Maybe this is the song

Now my mind is wandering
I should get some tea
Esthetician did a great job on my nails
Did I take my vitamins today?

My favorite song
A happy song!
Singing a song
Any song!

Trying too hard with the message wasting time
I’ve got nothing to prove
Throw in my cards
Do you really care or do you just want a killer groove

Hey life is a dance floor
Come out and party
Take some chances
Before the song ends

This is the song

I’ve always been able to laugh at myself
Some might say this song has no substance
I must admit I’m pushing it
It’s my song so what the hell

I Pretend
LYRICS

It’s so long ago now
It’s so long ago but yesterday
Felt my heart would never beat the same
Told me we were leaving
Told me places we would go
Then you left without me, and I tried to mask the pain

Abandoned by the one ideal
Shattered my faith, reality
Oh Lord erase this memory, so I can heal

Oh how do I forgive and forget
When my heart’s a broken shell that aches to be whole
Oh I long for the hurt to end
But to the world I pretend that I have moved on

So much time gone by
So much time, many words unsaid
Actions words could never justify
If you could go back there
If you could start all over again
Would you fight for me? Would you walk the wire?

To save yourself you sacrificed
My life, my soul, I was the price
You walked away, no goodbye, no reason why

Oh how do I forgive and forget
When my heart’s a broken shell that aches to be whole
Oh I long for the hurt to end
But to the world I pretend, that I have moved on

I’m not the girl you knew before whose love you did forsake
Look at my face I wear the scar from the destruction in your wake
I bore the strain
I took the blame
I cried
I lied to hide the shame of truth I dread

Oh how do I forgive and forget
When my heart’s a broken shell that aches to be whole
Oh I long for the hurt to end
But to the world I pretend that I have moved on

It’s so long ago now
It’s so long ago but yesterday
