I Want To Be There For You

I WANT TO BE THERE FOR YOU
© 2007 Francis Soriano

There you stand
Outside my door
Even though it’s half past four
Don’t have to speak
Or say a word
I can recognize the hurt
You don’t have to apologize
Take my hand and come inside

If you got a tear in your eye, I’ll dry it
If you got a hole in your heart, I’ll mend it
If you got the world on your back, I’ll lift it
I want to be there for you
I want to be there for you

We have shared
A million laughs
And I can’t bear to see you sad
If it helps
I’ll shut the lights
We’ll lay in the dark all night
I will be the friend you find
When everyone’s left you behind

If you got a tear in your eye, I’ll dry it
If you got a hole in your heart, I’ll mend it
If you got the world on your back, I’ll lift it
I want to be there for you
I want to be there for you

Let yourself go
Lay down your guard
There’s a safe place
In my arms

If you got a tear in your eye, I’ll dry it
If you got a hole in your heart, I’ll mend it
If you got the world on your back, I’ll lift it
I want to be there for you
I want to be there for you

T-Tongue Tied And T-Twisted

T-TONGUE TIED AND T-TWISTED
© 2007 Francis Soriano

Casey gets her coffee at the corner café
I keep trying to catch her eye each and everyday
I start to say something as she strolls by
But I st-stutter because I’m so so shy
She just walks away
I don’t know what to say

I’m tongue tied and twisted
I just say gibberish
Can’t talk, can’t speak
Can’t believe what she’s doing to me
How can she make me be
T-tongue tied and t-twisted

One day Casey sits down on the seat next to me
I’m so surprised she sits there that I suddenly freeze
She says “I’ve seen you smile and it’s caught my eye.
Yes, I’d like to go for coffee some time”
She writes her number down
I barely make a sound

I’m tongue tied and twisted
I just say gibberish
Can’t talk, can’t speak
Can’t believe what she’s doing to me
How can she make me be
T-tongue tied and t-twisted

What’s the cure for a guy like me
I get so nervous I can barely breathe
Lord, help me please!

I’m tongue tied and twisted
I just say gibberish
Can’t talk, can’t speak
Can’t believe what she’s doing to me
How can she make me be
T-tongue tied and t-twisted

Without Forgiveness

WITHOUT FORGIVNESS
© 2007 Francis Soriano

I drove off during our fight
Forced to walk home
She broke down and cried
I showed up late one night
A bottle in my hand
Trouble on my mind
It was a year before she took me back
I’m lucky she still loves me that sometimes I ask

Without forgiveness where would I be
A troubled soul struggling to be free
Without redemption could I be saved
Would I have become the man I am today
Without forgiveness

I had it out with my dad
When I was 15
I left and didn’t look back
And I let the years go by
Till mama called and said
He doesn’t have much time
It meant so much when I held his dying hand
He said “Son, don‘t you be sorry, you’re just like your ol‘ man”

Without forgiveness where would I be
A troubled soul struggling to be free
Without redemption could I be saved
Would I have become the man I am today
Without forgiveness

For all the things I regret I did
I ask the Lord to purge my sins
I do my best to make it up to Him, cuz

Without forgiveness where would I be
A troubled soul struggling to be free
Without redemption could I be saved
Would I have become the man I am today
Without forgiveness
Without redemption
Without love
Without forgiveness
