LYRICS & CREDITS

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

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

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

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

JUST A LITTLE BIT

Just a little bit

Just a little bit

Just a little bit more

Of you and 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 and 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 and see

Lonely

Doesn't everyone get lonely?

I know I cannot be the only one

Who is lonely tonight

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

And out of mind? 
You're out of my reach 
And 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

I AM CONTENT

(CONTENT)

Oh, let me stay and 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
