Lyrics

Nowhere to run( The Crystalball Song

Written By: AllanaRussell

As I look inside my crystal ball
I see myself take a fall
Into a pool of water in the round

As I travel through this jealous sea
I ride the "reins" of irony
While I settle for a life that's so profound

(chorus) And I have no where to
run
No where to hide
I fight to keep the breath
in me alive

The captain on the ship up there
Is saying something but I can't hear
What could it be
I'm listening, desperately

I make it to the deck on time
Just to find that it was my love
Tied to the sails against my destiny

(chorus) And I have no where to
turn
In no one to confide
I fight to keep my sanity
alive

(bridge) The captain has changed
courses now
He wants to sail me
further out
I'm reaching for the galaxy
When you were you
And I was me
I wonder if it's worth it all
Break this crystal ball

Somehow I rode the waves back home
I'm lying in my bed alone
Remembering the sentimental journey
My eyes are fixed upon the wall
To the shelf revealing the crystal ball
Containing dreams to the imaginary

(chorus) And I have no where to
run
No where to hide
I fight to keep the breath
in me alive

Life is so irrational
Decisions are all optional

Just come look inside my crystal ball
Maybe you will find the answers to it all

(tag) Look inside my crystal ball

Darlin'I Want You I Need You, My Friend

Written By: Allana Russell

(Verse 1) Bring me some flowers let me know that you're still loving me today

Make me a promise, a promise that you'll never go away

Even if the sun don't shine, remember, I could never love you more

Lay down here beside me babe, we'll find the love we've both been searching for

Darlin' I Want You, I Need You, My Friend

(Verse 2) Kiss my lips so tenderly, and whisper songs of love all through the night

Put your arms around me, let me know that everything will be all right

If the road you choose is grey, I'll be the light that's shining there for you

On that road I know you'll find the love I have inside for you is true

Darlin' I Want You, I Need You, My Friend
Darlin' I Want You, I Need You, My Friend

(Bridge) Maybe I'm just worried 'bout us baby
If you'd only tell me, then maybe, baby

(Verse 3) Bringing me these flowers lets me know that you're still loving me today

Thank you for the promise, now I know that you will never go away

Darlin' I Want You, I Need You, My Friend
Darlin' I Want You, I Need You, My Friend

Darlin' I Want You, I Need You, My Friend

OOOO, I Want You, I Need You, My Friend

(Tag) Darlin' I Want You, I Need You, My Friend
