Melanie Hilmi: Playing in bands since the age of 17 she received major label attention while fronting the Toronto pop band Calling Wendy but found the artist route took up too much of her time and though her rich and silky voice will be missed by the band she is now focused on songwriting and singing her own songs. Apart from her own songs she has written and co-written songs for various artists.

Lyrics

Just Me

Written By: Jason Taylor & Melanie Hilmi

On the road near Abilene
this radio keeps my mind on memories
you're leaving me for good
while I'm wishing that you would
think about the times
we used to think this love we'd share for all our lives
but things they always change
and I've learned to love again

And if you're ever coming home
now I've learned to stand up on my own.
Just me, just me

I used to lie here in your arms
and you would tell me that I'd always be the one
but things they had to change
but I've learned to love again

And if you're ever coming home
now I've learned to stand up on my own
Just me, just me

I'm not falling at your feet
that's not the sound that my heart makes
I used to feel like breaking down
but now I'm strong love, no more tears or sleepless nights

If you're ever coming home
now I've learned to stand up on my own
And if you're ever coming home
It's just me,
it's just me,
it's just me.

Good Enough

Written By: Melanie Hilmi & Jason Taylor

Waiting in your car again
broken down at 3am.
you put a record on and play my favorite song
we listen in the pouring rain

That's still good enough for me
You're still good enough for me

In the unemployment line
I wont even ask this time
you're down on your luck
but you've got just enough
for flowers and a bottle of wine

That's still good enough for me
You're still good enough for me

Our history was lined with dreams at 17,
And through the tears and all the years and memories

You're still good enough for me
You're still good enough for me...

Home Sweet Home

Written By: Hilmi, Taylor

I packed my car and I drove into the night
no truckstop gasoline and I'm down to one headlight
I hit that state on the 4th of July
Hank on the radio and the sun is on the rise

Freedom's like a highway
that open road will get you miles to where you're going
keep that wind blowin' my way
take me home sweet home
take me home

Left all my promises in the town where I was born
ten years of 'could've beens' well it's all I've ever known
I hit that state on the 4th of July
"Welcome to Georgia" and I knew I had arrived

Freedom's like a highway
that open road will get you miles to where you're going
keep that wind blowin' my way
take me home sweet home
take me home sweet home
take me home

Home's where the heart is and now I realize
my heart belongs here beneath the southern sky

Freedom's like a highway
that open road will get you miles to where you're going
keep that wind blowin' my way
take me home sweet home
take me home sweet home
take me home sweet home
take me home
