LYRICS & CREDITS

The One You Fell For

THE ALBUM

JUST A LITTLE BIT

Just a little bit

Just a little bit

Just a little bit more of you & me

And we could fall in love

 

Just a little bit

Just a little bit

Just a little bit closer when we touch

Oh, it would mean so much

 

If you look at me a little longer, Baby

I think you'll find THE ONE YOU FELL FOR

So many years ago

Well, I'm not your girl, but I'm your woman

And hard times have come

But I'm still willin' to fall back into love with you

 

Just a little bit

Just a little bit

Just a little bit longer when we kiss

We'll feel like kids again

 

Just a little bit

Just a little bit

Just a little bit slower when we dance

And make romance, Oh 

 

If you take my hand, I will follow, Darlin'

Please understand you're the one I'm wantin'

And I have loved you for so long

 

Just a little bit

Just a little bit

Just a little bit, Oh

LONELY TONIGHT

Lonely - doesn't everyone get lonely?

I know I cannot be the only one who is lonely tonight

 

Hopeful, hopeful - I am terminally hopeful

My soul's full of hope that I'm not just wastin' time

 

And I choose to believe

That someone is out there waitin' for me

And I hope I not crazy

But I guess we'll just wait & see

 

Worth it - even though I am not perfect

I do trust that LOVE will work it all out

And my heart's worth waitin' for

And I choose to believe

That someone is out there waitin' for me

And I do not think it's crazy

But I guess we'll just wait & see

Lonely - doesn't everyone get lonely?

I know I cannot be the only one who is lonely tonight

CONTENT

 

Oh, let me stay & sway like the trees

Just go

This is all I need to be okay - alone

Just go

And I don't expect to move from this spot, oh no

Move on

'Cuz I am content whether you like it or not

Move on

And do not ask me to comply

'Cuz right now you're wasting your precious time

ANYHOW

It’s lookin’ like I won’t be sleepin’

Back into my mind such thoughts are creepin’

And I cannot shut it off - it never seems enough

Doesn’t matter, it isn’t the end it’s bent on seekin’ anyhow

 

It’s like my heart never runs out of achin’

Mostly hangin’ off the edge of breakin’

And I cannot make it stop - it will not give it up

Doesn’t matter, it isn’t sense it’s bent on making anyhow

 

You got my full attention whether you wanted it or not

I took not one ounce of prevention

Now, there ain’t no cure for what I got

Well, it isn’t like the world has ended

There’s just so much time that I’ve been spendin’

Just tryna work it out.  What is that all about?

Doesn’t matter, this achin’ heart just keeps on beating 

This bleeding heart just keeps on bleedin’

This aching heart just keeps on beatin’, anyhow

STILL MISSIN' YOU

Like holdin' to smoke 

Like graspin' for ghosts 

There once now gone, it's time to move on 

But I'm still missin' you 

Yeah, I'm still missin' you 

 

I'm bidin' my time 

I'm lost inside my own mind 

It all was so clear then I lost you, Dear 

Now, all I can do is cry 

'Cuz I'm still missin' you 

 

Do you ever think of me 

Wherever it is you are? 

Or am I out of sight & out of mind? 

You're out of my reach & no longer mine 

 

You've haunted my heart for years 

I've cried an ocean of tears 

I try to move on but the feeling's so strong 

And I long to hold you here 

'Cuz I'm still missin' you 

 

I'm still missin' you

LANDLOCKED

 

What I really wanted was to walk into the sea

That terrible, beautiful mystery right before me

I didn’t really wanna leave you 

So I never brushed the sand from my feet

And I’ll let the salt in my tears remember you to me

 

Cuz right now I’m landlocked

And I’ve got a strange fear of drownin’

There's no boat to rock, but my heart’s still poundin’


 

What I really wanted was to stand there & not speak

To feel myself small & be known by something so big

To learn that what could crush you doesn’t want to blows the mind

And turns all that dread into known’ you’re gonna be all right

 

Even when you’re landlocked

And you’ve got a strange fear of drownin’

There’s no boat to rock, but your heart’s still poundin’

 

What I really wanted was to look into your eyes

And hold to your gaze long enough to be surprised

To know that I can trust me, that I’ve got something deep & wild

And know that the pulse of the waves are callin’ from inside

 

Even when I’m landlocked

And I’ve got some strange fear of drownin’

There’s no boat to rock, but my heart’s still poundin’

BUT FOR THE MELODY

 

I’ll stop my sentence short, I’ve said it all before

As all my best-laid plans lay scattered on the floor - Oh

 

Won’t somethin’ soothe my brain?  No track can hold this train

But for the melody and rhythmic chords that pulse in me - Ay

 

Ain’t nothin’ gonna fix me

And I tell ya, it really ticks me off

Then I crash into thick walls of grace

Like the sweetest slap across my face  - Ay

 

I’ll stop my sentence short

IN THE NIGHT

 

Perilous the rush on the water

Rock the boat, toss the sailors

That didn’t hold through the night

 

Monsters break the surface to touch you

Long to taste salty breezes

Trading darkness for light

 

It only hurts

It only hurts

It only hurts for a while

 

Tentacles unfurled soak the sun in

Davy Jones takes a breather 

And lets the keys float away

 

Sirens whisper on the horizon

Hold their song for the mornin’

They have no plans for the day

 

It only hurts

It only hurts

It only hurts in the night

 

Row, Row, Row

 

It only hurts

It only hurts

It only hurts in the night

WHAT IF I GET BRAVE
 

SHE:

I think that I’d like to feel like you feel

But my heart’s holdin’ on ‘cuz its hurt for so long

 

HE:

But you’ll the way that my gaze doesn’t stray

And that you are my favorite part of the day

 

SHE:

So, what if I get brave and let you wrap me in your arms?

HE:

I know it won’t take long, you’ll find you’re lost in all my charms

SHE: 

Would it be too crazy if I took a chance with you?

Oh 

 

SHE:

Now, I think that you could convince me it’s true

That your love will remain - that your heart beats my name

 

SHE:

Now, nobody would know, but you are always on my mind

HE:

I think about you all the day and dream of you at night

SHE: 

You’ve taken up sweet residence straight into mornin’s light

Oh

 

SHE:

So, what if I get brave and let you wrap me in your arms

HE:

I know it won’t take long you’ll find you’re lost inside my charms

SHE:

I think that I’ll go crazy and just take my chance on you

Oh

BEING NEAR YOU

 

You don't have to be my party

You don't have to show me a good time

You don't have to think so hard about it

Being near you

Being near you

Being near you feels just fine

You don't have to say you're sorry

There's no need here to apologize

You don't have to try so hard around me

Being near you

Being near you

Being near you is just fine

And I know you get tired

And I know the road feels so long

And you cannot be rewired

And besides, your ways aren't wrong

We don't have to have a party

We don't have to drink up all the wine

You can text me from across the table

Being near you

Being near you

Being near you is just fine

SWEET BABY

Oh, Sweet Baby

Don't you let it get you down

You'll be quite all right

I'll stay with you all night

Your time is comin' 'round

You find your feet are on the ground

So, sleep now, sweet baby, of mine

Oh, Sweet Baby

I've told you this a thousand times

You're lovely as you are

Your sparkle, as the stars

The brilliance of your light

Has traveled centuries of nights

So, sleep now, sweet baby of mine

Sleep

Sleep

Sleep now

Sleep now

Oh, Sweet Baby

We won't let it get us down

We'll be quite all right

I'll sing us through dark nights

Our time is comin' 'round

We'll find our feet are on the ground

So, sleep now, sweet baby

Sleep now, sweet baby

Sleep now, sweet baby of mine

SINGLES

 

 

IMPOSSIBLE LOVE

I only want impossible love

'cuz the real thing is scary

I only want impossible love

'cuz the real thing take somethin'

I haven't got

I only want what I haven't got

'Cuz what I've got is faulty

I only want what I haven't got

'Cuz what I've got needs someone

That I am not

I think we all want more

I think we all want somethin'

Eyes are on the door

Set on leavin' or

Hopin' that knockin' will hold 

What we're lookin' for

I only want the beat of my heart

to beat for somethin'

I only want the beat of my heart

to beat with somethin' more
