Call Me Back

Posted: May 22, 2003

More than anything I wish for you to see
The part of you that has taken up part of me
and everything that that I thought — that I believed,
Was untrue

You’re beautiful, babe, a daisy in full bloom
So let me live, let me breathe a breath of you
I’ve gotta know, are you the one to hang the moon? Was it you?
Everyday I pray you’ll look my way

I’m glued to the phone, sitting alone
Holding my breath you’ll call me back
I’m turning blue, so crazy for you
and your sweet, sweet voice
say you want me too

Baby let me go, give it to me straight
I’ve never been so tired of playing these games
So tell me now, is there a chance for you
Cause I’m tempting my fate?
Throughout the week I’m doing everything I can
So I can see you for a time when the week ends
If you don’t call, you put me back where I began
Lying in wait
But everyday, I pray you’ll look my way

I’m glued to the phone, sitting alone
Holding my breath you’ll call me back
I’m turning blue, so crazy for you
and your sweet, sweet voice
say you want me too

When’s it gonna be my turn?
When’s my chance to be your king?
Would you object to me (girl) if I sang for you (girl) ?
While I anxiously await, suspicion oftentimes creates what it suspects
Oh, make your move

Tonight, I’m staying home
To wait by the phone
Holding my breath you’ll call me back
I’m turning blue, so crazy for you
And your sweet, sweet voice
Say you want me too

1000 Times Tonight

Posted: May 22, 2003

Sometimes I wonder
What have I done
What do you see in me
And what have we become
I’ve all my life sought after you
I’ve been searching high and low
So how I found you here tonight
Lord, I’ll never know
All I know is that I’m happy
With you everything’s alright
You girl just made me happy
A thousand times tonight
A thousand times tonight
Sometimes I wake up
From the dead of night
Though I’m scared I’m not alone
Everything’s alright
I’ve dreamt of this forever
If forever does exist
Then nothing can go wrong right here
But oh, to feel your kiss
All I know is that I’m happy
With you everything’s alright
You girl just made me happy
A thousand times tonight
A thousand times tonight
So did ya know
Did you know
Did you know
You’re the star of all my dreams
I’m lost in you, and so it seems
That, maybe I’ll give anything
To be who you see in me
Hold me again
Touch me again
Stay with me forever, baby
Don’t let this night end

Two Miles Away

Posted: May 8, 2003

Though you’re two miles away
It might as well be forever
If you won’t let me in your heart
Then why are we together
It’s times like these, when I hit my knees
And cry out
Where did we go wrong
What happened to you
What happened to me? And us?
And all the things I knew
All I want is you
For things to be brand new
But I don’t even know you
If you’re happy being two… miles away
We both knew I had to leave
But soon I’d be back home
Each night I’d wait to hold you in my arms
Now I’m waiting here alone
I’m crying out to you
Lord, what else can I do
But you turn to ignore me
And you break my heart in two
Still my heart aches for you
For things to be brand new
But I don’t even know you
If you’re happy being two… miles away

I wanna’ kiss you–touch you–feel you–hold you
I wanna’ feel your breath ripple down my neck
Have I told you I need you?
I wanna’ see you–be you–know you–complete you
A thousand times just tonight

Though you’re two miles away
Don’t let it be forever
You’ve got to let me in your heart
We’re meant to be together
It’s times like these
When I hit my knees and cry out

Where did we go wrong
What happened to you?
What happened to me? And us?
And all the things I knew
All I want is you
For things to be brand new
But I don’t even know you
If you’re happy being two…
Happy being two…

…miles away

Away (A Soldier’s Anthem)

Posted: May 8, 2003

Don’t go away
She said to me yesterday
As I was packing up to go
Write you everyday
She promised me
As I walked through that door
Oh, baby, stay
She cried out
Who needs the war? Who needs the war?

But there’s a yearning in my heart tonight
And I can’t breathe and I can’t fight
Cause I’m burning deep inside to make it home

So, Father, show me the way
Cause I’m afraid to face today
Even though yesterday is gone, gone, gone
Well, there’s got to be a way
To get up and face today
I’m just so scared to think that
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
Away

So I’ll retire the tracks I’ve laid
Admire the mess I’ve made
To get this far
Discover the way for me to say
Forever is not so far
So far away
To keep me apart from you

So if I don’t make it home tonight
Don’t cry for me — I’ll be alright
You know I’m never going down
Without a fight

So, Father, show me the way
Cause I’m afraid to face today
Even though yesterday is gone, gone, gone
Well, there’s got to be a way
To get up and face today
I’m just so scared to think that
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
Away

Gone away
Gone away
So go all the way today
Go all the way today
Cause I love you
You know I love you
But I can’t stay
I love you
I love you but I can’t stay… away

Giving You Up

Posted: May 8, 2003

From the first time that I saw you standing there
I knew that you must be an angel sent to me from up above
You are everything I’ve prayed for all the nights I’ve spent alone
Asking God to send me someone I could love

I wish that someday soon
You’d understand my love for you

But I’m giving you up
Setting you free
Hoping someday you’d come back to me
I’m letting go, but I thought you should know
You can’t see the credits before the start of the show
I’m giving you up — setting you free
Hoping someday you’d come back to me
I’m letting go — need some time to grow
I can’t cross your path until I walk my road

Well, I heard it from a wise man long ago
He said to me, “Son, if you really love something, you gotta’ let it go
Then sit back and wait, and if she comes back on her own she’s yours
But if she’s gone for good, she was never yours at all”

I remember the night we danced
Did you know I took this chance?

By giving you up — setting you free
Hoping someday you’d come back to me
I’m letting go, so I thought you should know
I’ve been waiting for hours for you out in the cold.
I’m giving you up — setting you free
Praying to God you’d come back to me
I’m letting go — you’re on your own
Still my heart’s going with you — you’re not alone

Saw my world come crashing down the day my best friend sat me down
And said you didn’t care for me how I care for you
And I had to laugh despite myself the night I got a phone call
From that same guy telling me he loved you too
My heart’s in my throat — it’s true
How could this happen? You love him too?
So I’m giving you up — setting you free
Nothing more to say that would get you love me
I’m letting go — you’re on your own
No longer will I stand in the way of your love
I’m giving you up — setting you free
Praying to God you’d come back to me
I’m letting go, you’re on your own
Maybe I’m better off just being alone
