Lyrics

Why'd U Go and Do That (Baby)

Written By: Craig M. Reay

WHY’D YOU GO AND DO THAT (BABY)? Rock

Craig M. Reay
Why’d you go and do that baby?
Why you pushin’ me A-way?
It’s been hounding me, how you keep pounding me..
You didn’t have to go there baby. Some things are better left unsaid.
You keep bleeding me, but you’re not reading me..

Ooo you know I love you baby. You sho’ make me scream and shout.
The things you do to me, cut right through to me..

(CHORUS)
Your stormy eyes are killing me, Like a lonely mel-o-dy
And I might need some sym-po-thy.
When you knock me to my knees.

You know how to get me started. You couldn’t put this thing to bed.
You had to mess with me, till you got the best of me..
Why’d you go and do that baby? Why you pushin’ me A-way?
It’s been hounding me, how you keep pounding me..

Your stormy eyes are killing me, like a lonely mel-o-dy.
And I might need some sym-po-thy, when you knock me to my knees.
And I might need some sym-po-thy
When you knock me to my knees

Why’d you go and do that baby? (Repeat, add lib)

Was it Really You

WAS IT REALLY YOU
Written by Craig M. Reay

Was it really you last night
Did you tell me we were through
Come again I didn’t hear you right
Was it really you

Was it my imagination
Were you ignoring my reply
When you turned around and walked away
Did you even say goodbye

Guess you finally got the last word in, but you don’t know who to blame
Are we really going through this again?

Hope you were just fooling me, I think it’s time to settle down
I keep saying “only time will tell”, and you keep dragging me around…

Chorus
Was it really you, (was it you) would you tear my heart in two (is it true) when you tell me that you need me, then you tell me that we’re through?
What am I gonna do now? I’ve got to get to you somehow. Is there ever any reason? Oh no, was it really you.

What am I gonna do now? I’ve got to get to you somehow. Is there ever any reason? Oh no, was it really you.

Was it really you last night? What’s this feeling coming to?
Will we ever know who’s wrong or right? Now what’s this love suppose to do?

Oooo, here we go again, neither one will ever give in. You, you never tell me where you’ve been.

Chorus
Was it really you, (was it you) would you tear my heart in two (is it true) when you tell me that you need me, then you tell me that we’re through?
What am I gonna do now? I’ve got to get through to you somehow. Is there ever any reason? Oh no, was it really you?

Was it really you?

A Mother's Story

Written By: Craig M. Reay

A Mother’s Story
Words and Music by Craig M. Reay
Mother please tell me the story, under the stars so bright,
When he came in all of his glory, so humble and so full of light

And I will remember the baby, wrapped in a manger so warm,

And I can imagine the angles, singing the “Christ child is born”,

singing the “Christ child is born.”

(Chorus, Angel choir) Christ is born, Christ is born, Christ is born in Beth-le-hem.

Mother please show me the picture, of Mary lying there
Of Shepards staring in wonder, and Joseph kneeling in prayer

I hear the wise men whisper, I see the animals stir

I feel the heaven’s resounding, and I know God’s spirit is there

and I know God’s spirit is there…

(Violin Solo, chorus)
Mother I hope we’ll remember, it happened so long ago.

I’ll make every month a December, and tell all the people I know.

That this is the meaning of Christmas, written on that blissful morn.

We cherish the spirit of giving, and thank God that Jesus was born,

And thank god that Jesus was born …
(Chorus, angel choir) Christ is born, Christ is born, Christ is born in Beth-le-hem.

Mother please tell me the story under the stars so bright,

When he came in all of his glory, so humble, and so full of light.
