ALL THE THINGS
(A. Janoska jun., P. Legat/K. Smith)

All the things, all things, all the things

Wasn’t it you who said it would be alright
If we just hold on?
You made me believe in time things would be just fine
Be patient, it will come to you

Cause I waited quietly, watched others go before me
When I knew it was my turn, but no one showed concern
I still stood in line, hoped someday I would shine
Now my dreams have come true
I’m so glad I listened to you

All of the things you said were true
All of the things you said I’d do
I did and done, I believed in one
All of the things you said would be mine
All of the things you said would take time
Now I can see, I believed in me
All the things, all the things

Remember the time you said I would see the light?
Look deep inside
It was hard to see what I’d turn out to be
Still you led me through, and I owe my thanks to you

Now that I can truly see, what hope can achieve
My lifes just begun, no longer will I run
Inside I always knew, I would make it through
Your words were in my head
Guiding me when I was mislead

All of the things you said were true
All of the things you said I’d do
I did and done, I believed in one
All of the things you said would be mine
All of the things you said would take time
Now I can see, I believed in me
All the things, all the things

All the things, all the things, all the things

Guitar solo

Cause I waited quietly, watched others go before me
When I knew it was my turn, but no one showed concern
Inside I always knew, I would make it through
Your words were in my head
Guiding me when I was mislead

All of the things you said were true
All of the things you said I’d do
I did and done, I believed in one
All of the things you said would be mine
All of the things you said would take time
Now I can see, I believed in me
All the things, all the things

CALL MY NAME                                                     
(P. Legat/K. Smith)

Call my name, call my name out loud
Call my name, call my name, call my name

I used to dream about, getting to know you
When I’d see you on the street
You never noticed me, I didn’t stick out
I was never quite so pretty

Then one day you looked my way
You asked me out on a date
It took a minute to find the words
But when I did, here’s what I said

Call my name, call my name out loud
To be with you would make me feel so proud
Call my name, call my name, call my name
Call my name, call my name out loud
To be with you would make me feel so proud
Call my name, call my name, call my name

Put on my favorite dress and my Sunday shoes
I was trying to impress you
You said I looked real nice and looked into my eyes
Said you saw my beauty deep inside
I was so happy felt like I could cry
Knowing you’d take all of me
You took my hand and we walked along
As we heard our favorite song

Call my name, call my name out loud
To be with you would make me feel so proud
Call my name, call my name, call my name
Call my name, call my name out loud
To be with you would make me feel so proud
Call my name, call my name, call my name

Being with you makes me feel so fine
You turned my darkness into sunshine
Turned my gray skies into blue
Now that you’ve made my dreams come true

Call my name, call my name out loud
To be with you would make me feel so proud
Call my name, call my name, call my name
Call my name, call my name out loud
To be with you would make me feel so proud
Call my name, call my name, call my name

AIN’T YOU HAD ENOUGH                                                     
(J. Nile/J. Nile, K. Smith)

Something that you said last night
Hit my heart so deep and it left me thinking now babe
How you never had a love that’s right
Well I know that’s right, but there’s something waiting for you

Somehow I just figured out
Couldn’t do without what I know we could be
I waited so long for this and the chance we miss
Might not come again

Ain’t you had enough
Of giving it up and waiting for love to come (ooh)
Ain’t you had enough
Of chasing a dream, when all that you need is here for you

You’ve been to the ruins in Rome and the world beyond
But your heart has no home
Look closer at your soul inside, there’s a treasure you hide
Baby don’t deny it

Somehow I just figured out
Couldn’t do without what I know we could be
I waited so long for this and the chance we miss
Might not come again

Ain’t you had enough
Of giving it up and waiting for love to come (ooh)
Ain’t you had enough
Of chasing a dream, when all that you need is here for you

Oooh, aahhhh, oooh, ahhhh, oooahhh, oooahhh, ooohahhhh
Ooh, ooooh, don’t you want more?

Something that you said last night
Hit my heart so deep and it left me thinking now babe
How you never had a love that’s right
Well I know that’s right, but there’s something waiting for you

Somehow I just figured out
Couldn’t do without what I know we could be
I waited so long for this and the chance we miss
Might not come again

Ain’t you had enough
Of giving it up and waiting for love to come (ooh)
Ain’t you had enough
Of chasing a dream, when all that you need is here for you

FOLLOW                                                    
(A. Janoska jun./K. Smith)

Open, winding, twisting, turning
My mind hangs on to your rhythm
I can’t wait to see you hold you
Taste you feel you

Believing, receiving, joyful, pleasure
Only you know my moods
I just want to live you breathe you
All this leads to

Show me what you want
Show me where to go
Lead me then I’ll know
I will follow, follow you anywhere
My heart surely knows
With each beat our love grows
I will follow, follow you anywhere

Drifting, sinking, dreaming, feening
You fill my song with lyric
I can’t wait to love you need you
My heart beats for you

Soaring, adoring, beauty, passion
Only you feel my groove

HIGHER                                                     
(A. Janoska jun., P. Legat/K. Smith)

I feel the raindrops falling
Inside I hear you calling out to me
Don’t mind the morning dew
I know soon I’ll be with you

You make me wanna fly
I wanna touch the sky

You take me higher, higher
Higher than I’ve ever known
You take me higher, higher
Higher than I thought I’d go

With you life’s divine
You smile and then I shine
A love supreme for two
I’m me whenever I’m with you

You make me wanna fly
I wanna touch the sky

You take me higher, higher
Higher than I’ve ever known
You take me higher, higher
Higher than I thought I’d go

Come on wanna keep it going
Come on gotta keep it going
Come on, come on, come on

You take me higher, higher
Higher than I’ve ever known
You take me higher, higher
Higher than I thought I’d go

Come on wanna keep it going
Come on gotta keep it going
Come on, come on, come on

USER                                                    
(A. Janoska jun., P. Legat/K. Smith)

We used to be so cool, yeah we used to be so tight
Hung out at each others place, sometimes we spent the night
Always had each others back, could see eye to eye
Then one day you went too far, dippin’ in my jar

You’re a user (can’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
An abuser (won’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
You’re a taker (can’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
A heartbreaker (won’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)

You played so many games with your silly jealousy
Pretended to be real, like you were so into me
Anything to take away my identity
Needy, selfish, ruthless sick is what you turned out to be

You’re a user (can’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
An abuser (won’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
You’re a taker (can’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
A heartbreaker (won’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)

Look what you’ve done
Your time will come
Soon you will see
Can’t mess with me

Now what will you do with no one by your side?
Abused the friends you had, with your petty lies
You can lose my number, my e-mail address too
Please try to forget me, cause I’m forgetting you

You’re a user (can’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
An abuser (won’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
You’re a taker (can’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
A heartbreaker (won’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)

Look what you’ve done
Your time will come
Soon you will see
Can’t mess with me

You’re a user (can’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
An abuser (won’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
You’re a taker (can’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)
A heartbreaker (won’t turn my back, you stabbed me in the back)

BIGGER & BRIGHTER
(A. Janoska jun., P. Legat/K. Smith)

Watch your mouth
Watch what you say
Move aside don’t get in my way
Ain’t got time for messing around
I’m here to do my thing
I’m here to get my swing (on)
Life’s too short for wasted energy
So if you can’t come right
Don’t come by me

Cause I’m on, on, on
To bigger and brighter things
Ain’t nothing wrong, wrong, wrong
Believing in you again
Cause I’m on, on, on
To bigger and brighter things
Ain’t nothing wrong, wrong, wrong
Believing in you again

Evil minds are not my kind
I’m living right to stay alive
Don’t bother me with someone said
Cause if it ain’t said to me it’s not in my head
A little love is all it takes
Honesty not hypocrisy

Cause I’m on, on, on
To bigger and brighter things
Ain’t nothing wrong, wrong, wrong
Believing in you again
Cause I’m on, on, on
To bigger and brighter things
Ain’t nothing wrong, wrong, wrong
Believing in you again

Watch your mouth, watch what you say, move aside,
don’t get in my
Watch your mouth, watch what you say, move aside,
don’t get in my
Watch your mouth, watch what you say, move aside,
don’t get in my
Watch your mouth, watch what you say, move aside,
don’t get in my

Please don’t hate
If you can’t relate
I’m just me, living out my dream
Don’t call me up with the latest news
Really ain’t concerned, a lesson learned
Finally free from negativity
It’s been too long, it’s been too long

Cause I’m on, on, on
To bigger and brighter things
Ain’t nothing wrong, wrong, wrong
Believing in you again
Cause I’m on, on, on
To bigger and brighter things
Ain’t nothing wrong, wrong, wrong
Believing in you again

NOT ENOUGH                                                     
(A. Janoska jun., P. Legat/K. Smith)

You’re taking it all
Leaving me on empty
Thought I was strong
Cause I’ve been hurt before yeah
Must have been wrong babe
Believing you’d make light
From my dark and lonely nights
Ooh, what a fool to believe yeah

I gave my time, it’s not enough
Heart on the line still not enough
Spend all my days just dreaming of
All the things we could do
But I’m not the one for you

Your love is a lie
This you can’t deny
I had imagined
A story book ending
There’s got to be someone
Who would love a girl like me
Who could make me feel complete
Ooh, I’m not a fool anymore

I gave my time, it’s not enough
Heart on the line still not enough
Spend all my days just dreaming of
All the things we could do
But I’m not the one for you

I can’t live in the past
Hoping it would last
Just glad I knew in time
Before it was too late for me to make my big escape
Guess we’ll never know
We chose a different road
Now it’s the end
And I’m so glad
I’m letting you go

I gave my time, it’s not enough
Heart on the line still not enough
Spend all my days just dreaming of
All the things we could do
But I’m not the one for you

LEAVE IT UP TO YOU                                                    
(J. Nile/J. Nile, K. Smith)

Thinking back on it now
As you pack your bags
Looking for something clever to say
I can’t beg you to stay
Your decisions made
But I know you know
I didn’t want it this way

No I won’t cry thinking of you
Won’t die I won’t be blue
Goodbye I tried and I leave it up to you
So if time don’t make it better
We can’t live together
Goodbye I tried and I leave it up to you
I’ll leave it up to you

Can’t forget your smile
It’s someone else’s now
Still I’m wishing for a simple twist of fate
I’m turned inside out
Heart still left in doubt
Cause your acting like you don’t really wanna go

No I won’t cry thinking of you
Won’t die I won’t be blue
Goodbye I tried and I leave it up to you
So if time don’t make it better
We can’t live together
Goodbye I tried and I leave it up to you
I’ll leave it up to you

It’s like a little dance we do
I get you, you get back at me too
Emotionally through, I’m tired of the dance
There’s time’s when I’m just thinking
It’s such a sad condition
To have had so much
Then to lose so much

No I won’t cry thinking of you
Won’t die I won’t be blue
Goodbye I tried and I leave it up to you
So if time don’t make it better
We can’t live together
Goodbye I tried and I leave it up to you
I’ll leave it up to you

MAKE ME BELIEVE                                                     
(J. Nile/J. Nile, K. Smith)

Love, I never understood it like I do right now
You gave your gift to me and opened me somehow
I said I’d never let myself be hurt again
But passion always wins

Make me believe again
It’s been so long I can’t remember
Make me believe again
Make it end this long December
Make me believe again
It’s been so long I can’t remember
He never made me feel the way you do

I, I know you are a very special part of me
He never understood how love’s supposed to be
I look at you and see a mirror to my soul
Afraid to lose control

Make me believe again
It’s been so long I can’t remember
Make me believe again
Make it end this long December
Make me believe again
It’s been so long I can’t remember
He never made me feel the way you do

Make me believe again

Uh ooh, uh oooh, uh oooh, uh oooh, uh oooh, uh oooh, uh oooh, uh oooh

Make me believe again
It’s been so long I can’t remember
Make me believe again
Make it end this long December
Make me believe again
It’s been so long I can’t remember
He never made me feel the way you do

CONSEQUENCES                                                    
(J. Nile/J. Nile, K. Smith)

Ice, your cold as ice inside
No one could pay the price
To your soul to make you whole
Consequences

You’re gonna be losing something so strong
You’re gonna be crying for something that’s gone
There’s gonna be nothing we can do
Dooooodoooo

Rewind, rewind the consequences
Of love, you let, you let get by
Remind, remind yourself just what is
The consequences of love
What you do, you do, you do

Blame, you have yourself to blame
Now nothing good remains
Since you threw it all away
Consequences

You’re gonna be losing something so strong
You’re gonna be crying for something that’s gone
There’s gonna be nothing we can do
Dooooodoooo

Rewind, rewind the consequences
Of love, you let, you let get by
Remind, remind yourself just what is
The consequences of love
What you do, you do, you do

You’re gonna be losing something so strong
You’re gonna be crying for something that’s gone
There’s gonna be nothing we can do
Dooooodoooo

Rewind, rewind the consequences
Of love, you let, you let get by
Remind, remind yourself just what is
The consequences of love
What you do, you do, you do

SEE YOU AGAIN                                                     

(J. Nile/J. Nile, K. Smith)

It was on the seventh day I missed you
I realize just what a kiss do
To make you crazy
Make you feel like you’re losing your mind

I said I wanna love you more but
Can I easily ignore
The facts that face me
When night falls it your name I call

You’re like music to my mind
Something sweet that touched my soul
Baby let’s stop wasting time
Cause I’d really like to see you again

Wanting but to afraid to say cause
Three words sometimes get in the way
Would show you what’s in my heart
So you know I feeling you bad

You’re like music to my mind
Something sweet that touched my soul
Baby let’s stop wasting time
Cause I’d really like to see you again

Oohh, I’d really like to see you, see you
I’d really like to feel you, feel you
I’d really like to see you, see you
I’d really like to, uh yeah, yeah

You’re like music to my mind
Something sweet that touched my soul
Baby let’s stop wasting time
Cause I’d really like to see you again

Oohh, I’d really like to see you, see you
I’d really like to feel you, feel you
I’d really like to see you, see you
I’d really like to, uh yeah, yeah
