More Than Real

Written By: Janet Mayson

More Than Real © 2007

In the dark – feelin’ to find our way
In the light – so careful what we can say
Feelin’ your heat – it’s pullin’ me into you tight
In your arms – feelin’ more than real tonight
Feelin’ more than real tonight…

In my dreams – meltin’ into your side
In my mind – just keepin’ up with this ride
In your smile – knowin’ it’ll be alright
Reality – just missin’ you tonight
Feelin’ more than real tonight

Tell me what you feel, oh when you’re with me
(What’s inside of you?)
Oh, oh when you’re with me
(What’s inside of you?)
Inside – is it a fantasy?
It’s more than real to me (have I fallen?)
Gotta know how you’re feelin’ inside
Is it more than real tonight?
Is it more than real tonight?
Feelin’ more than real tonight
Are you feelin’ more than real tonight?

In your voice – hearin’ the feelings you try to hide
In a silence – ‘tensity growin’ deeper inside
My desire – believin’ all will turn out right
A fantasy – just missin’ you tonight
Feelin’ more than real tonight
Are you feelin’ more than real tonight?

Tell me what you feel, oh when you’re with me
(What’s inside of you?)
Oh, oh when you’re with me
(What’s inside of you?)
Inside – is it a fantasy?
It’s more than real to me (have I fallen?)
Gotta know how you’re feelin’ inside
Is it more than real tonight?
(It’s inside of you)
Feelin’ more than real tonight?
(It’s inside of me)
Are you feelin’ more than real tonight?
(Just a fantasy, yeah)
Feelin’ more than real tonight

Mid Air

Written By: Janet Mayson

Mid-Air © 2007

I feel like we died
It’s just the love I feel for you inside
Mixed with the pain since you said good-bye
I feel like we tried
Though not enough yet for our hearts inside
And you still left, no matter how I cried:

(CHORUS)
I know what I want, and I still want to be with you
You don’t know what you want, but I’m still gonna care
We vowed forever and then some - me and you
But I feel shot down out of mid-air

I feel like you lied
When you told me, you sat there cold and sighed
And just said I didn’t fit in your life
Well I feel like the ride
We’re both so crazy but with so much love inside
So now can you find it in your heart to try

(CHORUS)
I know what I want - and I still want to be with you
Have you figured it out yet cause I’m right here
We promised to grow old together - me and you
But I feel shot down out of mid-air

(BRIDGE)
I may have tried too hard to make it here with you
I believe in what we’ve got - I’m sorry if it was too much to bear
You pulled away, I kept trying to get closer to you
Won’t you find it in your heart to meet me in the middle somewhere

(CHORUS)
I know what I want - and baby still want to be with you
Together forever - I’m sorry but I still gotta care
We vowed to love each other forever - me and you.
But I feel shot down out of mid-air

(CHORUS)
I know what I want, and I still want to be with you
You don’t know what you want, but I’m still gonna care
We vowed forever and then some - me and you
But I feel shot down out of mid-air

You told me you loved me and baby you know I still love you.
Won’t you find your heart to meet me in the middle somewhere….

Don’t Do Me (Any Favors)
© 2007

You showed up when I needed a friend
And then things got out of hand - again and again
Don’t worry baby I’ll be fine without you now
Guess I missed when you moved on somehow

(CHORUS)
Don’t do me
Don’t do me
Don’t do me any favors
Some moments I still savor
But I just can’t take those lies to “protect” me anymore

A fool, I let you deep inside
Your new agenda is now all you abide - yeah you lied
Don’t worry baby I’ll be fine without you
You messed my mind up once too many times to choose

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
Go ahead, ignore what’s real in what you feel
I’ve opened up my eyes, you’re no longer a surprise
You will realize I was the real deal

So don’t do me
No, don’t do me
And don’t do me any favors

Don’t do me
Don’t do me
Don’t do me any favors

(CHORUS)
Don’t do me
Don’t do me
Don’t do me any favors
Some moments I still savor
But I just can’t take those lies

Can’t respect you anymore!

Drive Your Life

Lyrics & Music by Janet Mayson

What am I doin’ here
It’s not how it was s’posed to be
Life took a turn
Did it change my destiny

Drivin’ life’s open road
Thinkin’ how it all should be
Could it still happen
Are dreams still a possibility

Then a voice inside my head
Strong & sure it said

Drive your life, oooo oooo
Drive your life, oooo ooooo ooo
No more lookin’ in that rearview mirror
Your road ahead could be no clearer
Drive your life

Holdin’ tight to my steering wheel
Visioning a path for me
Feeling unsure, but knowing
I just need to believe in me

Then a voice in me
strongly agreed

Drive your life, oooo oooo
Drive your life, oooo ooooo ooo
No more lookin’ in that rearview mirror
Your road ahead could be no clearer
Drive your life
Drive your life

It’s time I truly believe
Its really all up to me, yeah

I gotta drive my life, yeah

I’m gonna drive my life, oooo oooo
I’m gonna drive my life, oooo ooooo ooo
No more looking in that rearview mirror
My road ahead could be no clearer
I'm gonna drive my life
I'm gonna drive my life
I'm gonna drive my life, yeah

Lyrics, Music & Performance by Janet Mayson

I loved you enough to let you go
But I know you enough to know you’ll stay… with me…
Here in my heart anyway…

I loved you enough to let you go
But I know you enough to know you’ll stay with me…
Here in my heart anyway

Life can be so difficult at times
To know the right things to say and do

Well, I still feel you near, your warm presence still here
So tell me what it is we’re really going through, wooo

I loved you enough to let you go
But I know you enough to know you’ll stay with me…
Here in my heart anyway

I loved you enough to let you go
But I know you enough to know that you’ll stay with me…
In my heart anyway-

--yyyy, anyway, anyway, anyway

I can feel your love still so alive
Do you even know what you really want inside

You might be gone now but you’re more than a memory
And that’s something that we both can’t deny, yeah

I loved you enough to let you go
But I know you enough to know you’ll stay with me…
Here in my heart anyway, yeah

I love you enough I let you go
But I know you enough, I know that you’ll stay with me
In my heart anyway-

--yyyy, anyway, anyway, anyway

Anyway, yeah anyway, anyway

You’re in my heart anyway.

With You

With You
© 2009 - Janet Mayson
Lyrics & Music - Janet Mayson
Performed by - Janet Mayson

So long ago, so romantic a time
You and I danced until the sunrise
A dream come true, but then it drifted away too.

For so many years, for so many times
I dreamed of you as if you were still mine
And never knew you might be thinking of me too

(CHORUS)
Dreamin’, roll back the years baby
Pull me close to you again and then maybe
We’ll relive that time that we once knew
Then before that dream is through
I want just one more dance with you.

Over the years we had our own lives
Though both dreamin’ about bein’ back in time
And those dreams grew so special for us too

(CHORUS)
Dreamin’, roll back the years baby
Pull me close to you again and then maybe
We’ll relive that time that we once knew
Then before that dream is through
I want just one more dance with you.

(BREAK)

Then by some stroke of luck our lives reintertwined
With one look in your eyes, then your hands in mine
Right then we knew, it was so right for us two

(CHORUS)
We can roll back those years baby
Pull me close to you right now and maybe
We’ll relive that time that we once knew
Oh make my dreams come true

I want one more dance with you.

And then another dance with you

And then one more dance with you

Yeah, one more chance with you
