Lyrics

KEEP LOOKING ON

Written By: Damien Alvie

Well I keep looking on, but you’re not there
Well I keep searching for you baby, but you‘re not there
Your not there

Every day seems like a day that I never want to leave behind
Every time I see you baby I just keep thinking I’m losing my mind
Are you real, are you the one, have we met somewhere else before
Another time another place, when our lives didn’t seem to get in the way

I keep looking on, I keep looking on
I keep searching for you baby, but you‘re not there, you‘re not there
Well I keep looking on, but you’re not there
Well I keep searching for you baby, but you‘re not there, you‘re not there

Every morning Just before dawn
You come to me in my dreams and you make me believe
Like an angel from above you lift me up in troubled times with my love
I wake up looking for you but you‘re not here, you are gone

I keep looking on, I keep looking on
I keep searching for you baby, but you‘re not there, you‘re not there
Well I keep looking on, but you’re not there
Well I keep searching for you baby, but you‘re not there, you‘re not there

Every day with you by my side seems like I‘m the luckiest man alive
With your smile in my heart, keeps me shinning deep inside
But when I need to hold you baby I can’t seem to be satisfied
Unless you’re holding me in your arms keeping me warm inside

I keep looking on, I keep looking on
I keep searching for you baby, but you‘re not there, you‘re not there
Well I keep looking on, but you’re not there
Well I keep searching for you baby, but you‘re not there, you‘re not there

You’re not there, you’re not there
I keep looking on, I keep looking on
But you’re not there

WILL NOT FORGET

Written By: Damien Alvie

Remember the night you left you walked right out the door
Remember the things you said you’re not coming back anymore
But you can't stop thinking of how I made you feel that night
Help you do those things you never thought you'd do before

You will not forget me, you will not, but you try to baby
I must admit I’m feeling sick, I must admit I’m nothing without, I must admit you are the one

In the back of your mind you will remember
How I made you feel how I made you come alive
Why must we do these silly things with our lives?
While we dance around making fools of ourselves

You will not forget me, you will not, but you try to baby
I must admit I’m feeling sick, I must admit I’m nothing without, I must admit you are the one

The thoughts I help you dream of in the still of the night
The way I hold you baby makes everything feel so right
We are strong we will face this world together
But without you my world will just break apart

You will not forget me, you will not, but you try to baby
I must admit I’m feeling sick, I must admit I’m nothing without, I must admit you are the one
