ME THREE

 

Me, myself and I were  all feelin’ pretty good

You see, we three could finally agree

From now on, nothing but blue sky

For me, myself and I

 

Until I got in the way of myself

In mortal mental torture and toil

Leaving a cold and shaking lonely little ol’ me

 

Whaddayagottabe like that for I said to myself

I am that I am I declare myself to be

 

 

A TORCH

 

Fearful I have fallen carrying this torch for you

Burdened by its weight, blinded by its light

A fire that cannot warm nor help me through the night

Cold and lonely, cured by your love only

They say it’s wrong, that just ain’t right

Can’t fan the flames of feelings we can’t fight

We can hide our eyes so others don’t grow wise

And still feel the flames if we must lose our sight

Joined by melody, together in song our souls take flight

Lost in the rhythm found together in harmony

Tears from eyes and skies fall as surely as I write

Another song to quench the burn of torches that burn too bright.

MY KIND

 

Oh I wanna lay this down, am I right or wrong baby
Well I know things keep changing
Make a little trouble over me,   
Where angels sin and are forgiven

 

Coz I’m breathless, sleepless    
And I want you, that’s all I can do
And that’s alright now baby, I hunger for you

 

I’ve said so much that’s never crossed my lips
I’ve seen in your eyes all I want to say
Please forgive me darlin, this disguise
Coz we’ve been telling our hearts these lies

And I’m breathless, sleepless    
And I want you, that’s all I can do    
And that’s alright now baby, it’s all I can do
That’s alright now baby, it’s all up to you.

Now I’ve been playing it cool now  
And I’ve been playing it down, baby
I’ve been playing it slow 
Coz I know
You’re my kind  
You’re my kind   


That’s alright now baby, how I hunger for you 
That’s alright now baby, it’s all I can do  
hat’s alright, you’re my kind

NEXT TO YOU

 

 

 Oh come on now you know what you’ve been missing

‘Cause you’re sitting way over there

And then again it seems you can’t come closer

I know you want to baby, you can’t get next to me.

Yeah your eyes tell me everything.

Ain’t that a shame, well, we share the blame

‘Cause I want to but I can’t get next to you.

Can’t stop over thinkin’ you’re nearly drivin’ me to drinkin’

My knees are weak and I just can’t speak but I need you.

 

Guess I finally found something I can’t do

Get next to you, can’t get next to you.
Guess I finally found something I can’t do, no baby

Get next to you, can’t get next to you.

It shouldn’t be this hard for words to cross my lips and make it to your heart

But there’s nothing to say, it’s just all in the way that I feel.

I’ve been screamin’ silently, while your eyes have been doin’  that talkin’ to me.
Yeah we know it’s wrong, but it’s comin’ on strong and I can’t breathe.

 

Guess I finally found something I can’t do.

Get next to you, can’t get next to you.
Guess I finally found something I can’t do, no baby

Get next to you, can’t get next to…

 

    …your fire, too close together baby

Fire, can’t get, can’t get next to you.

And I lose myself, don’t want nobody else.

 

Too many flames drivin’ me insane

I’m on fire baby

And it’s all I can do not to make love to you and drive you crazy.

 

Guess I finally found what I can’t do, no baby.

Get next to you, can’t get next to you.
Guess I finally found what I can’t do,

Yeah, get next to you…

And I lose myself, don’t want nobody else.
