Lyrics

Hey Jack

Written By: collette andrea

I'm the grass that's bruised, where he walks
I can't see light, but I feel it
And Jack, I'm coming back, to you,
I'm coming back
To you, so we can be one not two
You, I've always knew
And Jack, I'm coming back, to you
I'm coming back
My journey was long, but I pulled through
And I met some people, that I wish I never knew
But I'm leaving them, and I won't look back
And Jack, I'm coming back
And Jack, I'm coming back
To you
I'm coming back

The Night You Packed Your Bags

Written By: collette andrea

Packed your bags last night
Said your going on a trip
Packed your bags last night, I don't believe you for a bit
Cause seven years is to long, to go away
Turmoil burns inside my head
And to think that all along you would of stayed
On that night you packed your bags

And I don't want to think of all the times we used to have
cause that seems to far away
Now a days I don't think of you your face just makes me sick
And I wish I was the one who took that trip

And I can't stare into the eyes, of a hypocrite
Cause you do the same as me
You look like me even talk like me
And your voice makes me sick

Cause seven years is to long
to go away
turmoil burns inside my head
and to think that all along, you would of stayed
On that night you packed your bags

Give Me All Your Lovin'

Written By: Collette Andrea

Lonely isn't a feeling that I know
But I know sadness like an open door
Mama, mama told me that love is a good thing
And this time baby, I know your love is a good thing

So give me all you loving, give me all your loving
So give me all your loving, that I want

In a right state
Manic panic, I didn't plan it
And I can't stand it and I panic, now I feel sick
And I'm gone

Because i'm slipping and sliding
Can't keep this hiding from you darling
'Cause I'm slipping and sliding
Can't keep this hiding from you darling

So give me all your loving, give me all you lording
So give me all your loving, that I want

Written by Collette Andrea
lyrics
Sometime life it doesn't go
In the way you want it to go
Some time passes by
Just know your on your own

(Oohh)

Sunny haze and busy ways
You better know your way home
Take a ride to the country side in the wintertime
You know it's cold

And the leaves and the grass
The leaves and the grass
And the leaves and the grass are coming back
Before you know
Before you know

(Oohh)

The Water

Written By: Collette Andrea

Must be a way out of here
But I don't know which way to run
Which way to go
But I'm living for today
Cause tomorrow never ever comes

(Oh)

Stay away from the water boy
'Cause all I do is cry
And what a number you pulled on me
Your making it hard for everything

And I tell myself, I tell my self
I tell my self to

Stay away from that water girl
Stay away from the sea
Stay away from that water girl
And come on over to me

And my heart says, my heart says
And my heart says

(Oh)
credits

Steady Sun

Written By: Collette Andrea

Said you wanted a nice song
Well your blinded by steady sun
Your grace, you can't pace
You touch faith upon my face

And steady sun won't you come around?
I haven't seen your face around
Your full blown and your full grown
I can't understand why you can't see

And you said you saw
Only you can see a pretty star
Across the pretty sea

You trip upon the simple words
What is mine is yours, his, and hers
Step behind the broken door
You will scream and come back for more
credits

You And Me

Written By: Collette Andrea

Baby you know I can't live
With you and me

And you know I
You know I can't stand doubts in my man
And I can't stand this crazy plan

Of you and me

Baby you know I can't live
With you and me
credits
