VERSE
I’m getting ready to change my ways

Find myself in a loving place

I wanna know you, come on and hold you yeah

So turn up the heat and the lights down low,

Don’t let anything break our flow

I would never stray from your love

We could be so bad together

We could be so bad we’re good…ahhh


CHORUS

The way I see you the way I feel you, the way I need you

Is keeping me up at night

The way I see you the way I feel you, the way I need you

Is right here by my side

I see us doing bright, bright things

I see us living  and loving- sharing our dreams

That’s the way I see you the way I see you

Is right here by my side

 

VERSE
I wanna give you the best of me

I wanna do everything I can to make you happy

I wanna know what turns you on

So let’s take it nice and slow,

Heaven is a place where we can go

Let me show you now

We could be so bad together

We could be so bad we’re good…ahhh

 

CHORUS REPEAT

 

 


 


 

Holding On

He got me working overtime

Caught between the reason and the rhyme

When a man like that is a man of mine

He got me tripping all over my feet,

and you know my smarts ain’t street

But a good man is hard to find

So I'm holding on

I don't think it's wrong 

if I'm not that strong

Nobody said it has to last forever

So I'm holding on

I don't think it's wrong 

if I'm not that strong

Sometimes things get bad 

before they get better

So he's from the wrong side of the tracks

I try not to think about that and relax

'Cause of the way he makes me feel

Yeah, I'd love to find a person who

Is perfect in everything they say and do

But you know perfection's never real

So I'm holding on

I don't think it's wrong 

if I'm not that strong

Nobody said it has to last forever

So I'm holding on

I don't think it's wrong 

if I'm not that strong

Sometimes things get bad 

before they get better

There’s been times when I lost my mind

I’ve been putting in overtime

Staying on my grind

You’re my star. so I’m trying to get you 

these stars that will help you shine, help you shine

These streets made me, but I leave it all behind, all behind

You know, you know

So I'm holding on

I don't think it's wrong 

if I'm not that strong

Nobody said it has to last forever

So I'm holding on

I don't think it's wrong 

if I'm not that strong

Sometimes things get bad 

before they get better

So he's from the wrong side of the tracks

I try not to think about that and relax

'Cause of the way he makes me feel


 

Lifeline

Well, his bar sure is empty

About as empty as my heart

But those bottles look like

There’s life left in them,

And I got time to talk

You can sit down if you want to,

Throw some conversation my way.

'Cause me, I’m just drinking

Memories of better days

If you’re buying, I don’t mind trying

Stretching out the truth, 

Doing a little denying to ease my pain

I need to remember the way that he held me,

And if it takes another drink, maybe you could save me

I wanna feel that rush of love again

So won't you please, please, please be kind

Pretend that you’re him and throw me a lifeline

Well, I know beggars can’t be choosy

But tell me, who’s really choosing who?

I mean, we’re both sitting here reminded

Of lovers we once knew

Requesting their favorite songs from that bartender,

Watching their ghosts walk through that door

How come love always starts out so easy,

‘Till someone ends up wanting more

If you’re buying, I don’t mind trying

Stretching out the truth, 

Doing a little denying to ease my pain

I need to remember the way that he held me,

And if it takes another drink, maybe you could save me

I wanna feel that rush of love again

So won't you please, please, please be kind

Pretend that you’re him and throw me a lifeline

When sun comes up, I swear I’ll deal with who I am

But can I rest here on this bar chair until then?

If you’re buying, I don’t mind trying

Stretching out the truth, 

Doing a little denying to ease my pain

I need to remember the way that he held me,

And if it takes another drink, maybe you could save me

I wanna feel that rush of love again

So won't you please, please, please be kind

Pretend that you’re him and throw me a lifeline

end that you’re him

Pretend that you’re him and throw me a lifeline

Vagrant of Winds

He comes along every blue moon night,
Knows I’ve been waiting like a harbor light,
welcoming home that old familiar tide
of loving and longing in vain

He’ll sail on in with the same promise in his eyes.
He’ll see through my insouciance;
He’ll see through my false pride
Knowing I traced his path of stars through time
and prayed they’d lead him back home

Isn’t it time to give it a rest?
My only crime is I’ve settled for less
I don’t know where love ends or begins,
When my love is a Vagrant of Winds

I wish, I wish that blue moon,
I wish that blue moon would change it’s colors.
So, like the season, I could change lovers
I can’t let go yet; my heart wants to forget
that a vagrant dreams only alone

Isn’t it time to give it a rest?
My only crime is I’ve settled for less
I don’t know where love ends or begins,
When my love is a Vagrant of Winds

Beautiful But Damned

She spreads her legs just like a Bible,
seeking truth from any man.
Some say her reputation's shot but even the Devil,
even the Devil is putty in her hands
She knows every secret in the bedroom,
every fantasy unmasked.
With a combination this lethal,
a worn-out heart is bound to crash
Sister, choose your lovers carefully,
your prisons and your plans
If you don't, you'll be
Beautiful but Damned

She liked her men
who downed their liqueur
like their ladies-fast and clean,
no questions asked.
She worked straight from the hips
and chased their egos without mercy,
but her eyes were always sad
Inside a part of her was dying
but she maintained her old-school charm.
Can't hide those wrinkles on your soul forever;
no bar-gloom glamour's gonna keep you young
So choose your lovers carefully-
your prisons and your plans
f you don't, you'll be
Beautiful but Damned

So who am I to judge?
Lord knows. I ain't no angel!
I got a thousand shadows in my soul
I'm always falling for a twist of decadence,
and somebody’s out-of-focus rainbow

Now you tell me that you love me
I'll make it easy for you to say
Deception's just so comfortable
with love  a few white lies away
Ain't nothing here I see worth quitting;
your stay never wears out its charm
You got me hungry, you got me desperate...
in a head-space where we can do no wrong
I choose my lovers carefully-
my prisons and my plans
But darling, the way you make me feel-
I'd rather be
Beautiful but Damned
