Lyrics

It's Just That

Written By: Eva Aine

Once I see you, my friend
The world changes, and
Everything starts to shine
I can't help humming day and night

Sorry if I responded to you awkwardly that day
Some of your stories went in one ear and out the other
But you can't blame me
It's your fault for being so ...so ... so ... so ...

I don't want to cross the line, no
I won't be able to do anything productive
I don't want to hurt you and I don't want to be hurt by you
We both know our friendship lasts forever
Checking each other once in a while is fine, just fine

It's hard to get over after I see you in my dreams
But other than that, I'll be Okay

It's just that I hope you don't mind
I'm in love with your hair
I'm in love with your ear
I'm in love with your hands
I'm in love with your eyes
I'm in love with your voice
I'm in love with your name
I'm in love with your smile
I'm in love with your everything

Tell Me Do You Feel The Same?

Written By: Eva Aine

Tell Me, Do You Feel The Same?
written by Eva Aine

(1st verse)I wake up every morning
and you're the first person
I think about oh it's so strange
I blush though you are not here
Every night I go to sleep
It's you who keep appearing
This is so crazy
To you I am totally addicted

(2nd verse)Every time you text me
All day long you struck me
I keep looking at
Every word you send me
I can't help smiling
Every time I hear about you
All day long I see your face
I keep hearing your voice calling my name so gently

(precho)Oh my friend
It was like an accident
Never knew
One can fall so easily
Until that moment

(cho)I saw you
looking in my eyes
You saw me
looking in your eyes
Don't you think
something started?
Is it just my mere dream?

(3rd verse)It's becoming serious
I don't like this heartache
I can't hide this anymore
You're the only person who can rescue me
I do not blame you
for making me what I am now
You showed me heaven
and let me know I can fall in love again

(precho)Oh my friend
It was like an accident
Never knew
One can fall so easily
Until that moment

(cho)I saw you
looking in my eyes
You saw me
looking in your eyes
Don't you think
something started?
Is it just my mere dream?(repeat)

(bridge)Oh boy is this my mere dream?
I got to know how you feel
I got no more time to waste
Tell mem do you feel the same? (repeat)

(cho)I saw you
looking in my eyes
You saw me
looking in your eyes
Don't you think
something started?
Is it just my mere dream?

(bridge)Oh boy is this my mere dream?
I got to know how you feel
I got no more time to waste
Tell mem do you feel the same? (repeat)

I Gotta Love You

Written By: Eva Aine

I might have curves
but i ain't got much to appeal
i can be mean
and sometimes hopelessly weak
i know i'm imperfect and far from a sweet lady
but still i can
sing a love song and
give you my true love

Oh i'm telling you
I gotta love you

you might have it all
or almost all you could think of
all your looks, girls and fame, all around you
but whether you don't have them (at all)
or no matter what you might go through
still i can
sing a love song and
give you my true love

Oh i'm telling you
I gotta love you
no more games, no more pretending
you gotta love me

there might be no tommorrow
don't wanna wait another day
never know when is the last time
so why not risk it all

so i'm telling you
I gotta love you
no more games, no more pretending
you gotta love me

i might be insane
to even fall in love with you/this man
but when it's so clear
how can i resist my feelings
but i won't surrender to be
one of your one-time girls/ladies
if you're ready
i'll sing a love song and give you my true love

I Never Knew

Written By: Eva Aine

*chorus / i never knew i could fall in love this way
boy, when it feels so good / i cannot deny
you are the reason why i'm going crazy
i never knew i could fall in love fall in love this way (repeat)

when i hear the morning bird sing / it's you that i miss
when i see the sun setting / it's you that i see
when everything seems perfect / still i want you next to me
nothing seems so right if i don't have you boy

*chorus

when i see you smile at me / i can live one more day
if i hear you say you love me / i can live hundred years
no one but you make me feel the way I do boy
i wanna be the one for you if fate allows

(vamp)till i see you next time / i wanna be good
till I feel you next time / i wanna be kind
i never felt this way
you make me humble
though you stole my heart away / you make me honest

*chorus

Eyes in the Sea

Written By: Eva Aine

Anata ha mujakini watashi mitsume yorisottekureta (You stood right beside me, looking into my eyes)
Anata no kodo ha hageshiinoni (Although your heart was beating so fast)
Hitomi ha kawairashiku odayakani hikaru (Your adorable eyes were shining so peacefully)

Tsuburana hitomi (Your round eyes)
Yasashii hitomi (Your warm eyes)
Subete wo mitosu (You see everything)
Subete wo tsutsumikomu (You accept everything)

Even when you found yourself swept by wild waves,
You just lived every second without a question
Even when you became a star surrounded by enthusiastic crowds,
You just went on and on
Without asking for more

You round, magical eyes
You warm, beautiful eyes
You see everything
You accept everything
Subete wo tsutsumikomu (You accept everything)

Me wo tojireba nouri ni ukabu (Once I close my eyes)
Anata to kawashita shisen (I can see your eyes in my mind)

Thank you, Lord

Written By: Eva Aine

Oh Lord
Thank you, Lord
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for testing me

Oh Lord
Thank you, Lord
Thank you for this glorious day

Oh Lord
Thank you, Lord
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for testing me

Oh my Lord
Thank you, my Lord
Thank you for this glorious day

I'm Getting Hot

Written By: Eva Aine

Love your touch Love your move
I'm getting hot
Love your pose Love your vibe
I'm getting hot (repeat)

I’m Getting Hot oo oo (repeat)

(1st verse) As I look into your eyes
You reveal your wildness and won't let me go
And we instantly come to realize that something intimate is starting between us

(cho) I’m Getting Hot oo oo (repeat)

(2nd verse) You're not afraid to show all you got
and make me confide my inner secrets
You're not afraid to see all I got
This would drive us crazy
Are you ready to take this journey

(cho) I’m Getting Hot oo oo (repeat)

(vamp) Ah
Let your soul be free Let your soul be free
U got me with you U got me with you
Ah
Wanna take a chance Wanna take a chance
I got U with me I got U with me

Love your touch Love your move
I'm getting hot
Love your pose Love your vibe
I'm getting hot (repeat)

I’m Getting Hot oo oo (repeat)

Let It Go

Written By: Eva Aine

Let it go
by Eva Aine

I've been thinking thinking about him lately
And i can't take it no more
Oh yeah i know he likes the way
I like him but i don't like it oh no
I might still be thinking about him
It's all about my state of mind, you know
I don't have to be ashamed for falling but
I gotta let it go

When the heat of my body overtakes the tears i need to shed
When the heart beat is louder than any sound i want to hear
When everything starts to mean nothing if he doesn't smile at me
When i'm too blinded to see the things i need to see / it's about time

oow I'm gonna let it go
oow I'm gonna get out of here
oow I'm gonna let it go
For this is too much for me
oow I'm gonna let it go
oow I'm gonna get out of here
oow I'm gonna let it go
For this has gone too much far

He doesn't know how he is so sweet and so cruel at the same time
Part of my heart is missing in him / but it'll be okay /i'll be all right
He made me humble / he made me be a song
And i don't want to lose all that
By falling in love, by going too far

repeat

You Smile

Written By: Eva Aine

You smile / And every flower blooms
You cry / The trees are singing lullaby
You speak / And all the animals listen to you
You are the sun
You are the moon
You're life

You sing / The colors of the wind appear
You dance / And all the birds start to fly
You dream / And there are hundred rainbows in the sky
You are the air
You are water
You're life

You breath / The mounntains embrace you
You sleep / The moon is watching over you
You live / So all the stars shine more brightly
You are the sea
You are the earth
You're life
