Lyrics

Love will find a way

Written By: Jesse Campfens

VERSE 1
Yeah, I know the feeling
You could say I've been there too
When all that really matters
It just won't come to you

So sick of late-night promises
No, they never seem to last
Just crowd your head with memories
While you're getting nowhere fast

PRE
When all that you want
Are some loving arms around you
And all that you need
Is someone to say it's alright!
Right now

CHORUS
Love will find a way to your heart
Love will come and light up the dark
Love will bring an answer to your question
Will I ever be loved?
Yeah, just don't give it all up!

VERSE 2
Yeah, I know the feeling
It's like you've been here before
You're running round in circles
While you're craving something more

So sick of empty one-night stands
They leave you lonely to the bone
Sure it feeds that crazy yearning
But your heart it needs a home

PRE

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Keep holding on
And sing along
Today could be the day
That love will find a way

Dancefloor

Written By: Jesse Campfens

VERSE 1
You’ve been shaking your hips
For the mirror at home
But you only show your moves
When you’re on your own

You’ve been singing along
To your favorite song
But you only raise your voice
After everyone’s gone

PRE
It’s a shame, shame, shame that you’ve been hiding your game
Step out of the shadow, the spotlight calls your name

CHORUS
Why don’t you take it to the dancefloor baby
You’ve been watching from the sideline all of your life
Why don’t you take it to the dancefloor baby
Don’t you know that tonight’s the perfect night
To step into the light

VERSE 2
You’ve been painting you lips
Behind your bathroom door
But you wash away your make-up
Before you’re ready to go

PRE
Don’t be so shy, shy, shy.
Come on and give it a try
Step out of the shadow, you know you’ll be alright

CHORUS
Why don’t you take it to the dancefloor baby
You’ve been watching from the sideline all of your life
Why don’t you take it to the dancefloor baby
Don’t you know that tonight’s the perfect night

BRIDGE
To show the world your dancing moves
Rock the floor with those burning shoes
You can turn your life around, right now
Right now baby!

SOLO
CHORUS

Why don’t you take it?
Yeah!
Why don’t you take it?

Stay the night

Written By: Jesse Campfens

VERSE 1
Let me tell you a story
About who I used to be
I was walking in a dream
I wore my heart on my sleeve

Let me paint you a picture
Of all the days that went by
I was lost with no direction
‘Till you opened my eyes

PRE CHORUS
Life is just too short
To let it pass you by
When you live in fear
You’ll never get it right
You won’t win, if you don’t try

CHORUS
Won’t you stay, yeah
Stay the night
Don’t leave me here with a broken dream
We both know that ain’t right
Won’t you stay, stay the night
Won’t you stay, won’t you stay... (the night)

VERSE 2
Let me take you to a place
Where we both can be free
I am yours and you are mine
While we got space to breath

Let me sing you a love song
Underneath a clear blue sky
Baby there’s no need to run now
Cause I won’t make you cry

PRE CHORUS + CHORUS

She's just like me

Written By: Jesse Campfens

SHE’S JUST LIKE ME © May 2009

VERSE
I'm not staring into a mirror
I'm not holding my own hand
I feel your breath and your heart beating
We don't need words to understand

In your eyes I see reflected
Every question on my mind
Seems you always find an answer
When you leave the search behind

CHORUS
She's just like me
When she wants to be alone
I let her be
I'll be back when she needs some company
She's just like me
Just like me

VERSE
We made a pact worth to believe in
We both took a leap of faith
No bounds hold us together
We got space to contemplate

The oneness in life
Our connection in time
We will never be afraid
And we will never die

CHORUS
She's just like me
When she wants to be alone
I let her be
I'll be back when she needs some company
She's just like me
When I need some solitude
She lets me breathe
She's just like me

Woah woah ooh ooooh

I let her be ‘cause she’s just like me
Just like me

She's just like me
