Lyrics

Together Forever

Written By: John Nicole

I'm doing the laundry, washing sheets and pillowcases

I cleaned the house about an hour ago

I put the away the dishes and I made myself some soup

And I sat on the couch and thought of you

We were made to be together forever
We were made to last our whole lives through
We were made to be together forever
Honey, you were made for me
And I know I was made for you

I made the bed, put on the sheets and fluffed the pillows

I played piano, but I didn’t play it for too long

I thought about the way we were together

And I got some paper and a pencil and I wrote down this song

You and me we were made to be together
We were made to be together for quite a while
Honey, tin this world to make me happy
And I know there’s only one man who can make you smile

Baby, we were made to be…. together
Honey, can’t you see we should be together for the rest of our lives
Honey, you know I wanna be with you in work and in pleasure

Don’t you want me to be your husband?
I surely want you to be my sweet wife

It Ain't All Up To You

Written By: John Nicole

I thought that I could change for you
But Baby there ain’t nothin’ that you can do
It ain’t all up to you

I try to say the things you wanted me to say
But it ain’t all up to you

I hope by now you’ve learned your lesson
And you know what you did wrong

You should’ve let me have my freedom
That’s why we didn’t last very long

You just want complete control
But little do you know it ain’t all up to you

I know now that you’re so lost
And you had to pay the cost
It ain’t all up to you

You just want to lead the way
There was nothing I could say
It ain’t all up to you

There were times I couldn’t even feel
Cause you decided what was real, but
It ain’t all up to you

I didn’t know that I was part of your fantasy
And that you had a script you wanted me to read
I played your part too well and I could see
There was nothin’ else that I could be
‘Cause you held the key to bein’ me

Now I’m thinkin’ on my own
And I’m leavin’ you alone
It ain’t all up to you

Just try and stop me if you can
But you will never stop a real man
It ain’t all up to you

What you thought you had you lost
And little did you know the cost

It ain't all up to you

I Don't Play Piano

Written By: John Nicole

You know damn well I don’t play piano
‘cause if I did I’d play you back to me
We know so well I don’t deserve you
But baby, I simply choose to believe

Something happened from high above
Something made us fall so damn deep in love
Once upon a time, once upon a time
When you and I were young

I tried to find the words to say I’m sorry
‘cause if you’d just forgive me we could be
Back again together in our own love story
Loving, holding, kissing, so tenderly
You and me, the way we used to be

[Instrumental]

I searched to find the right inflection
The harmony we sang throughout the years

Nothing ever seems to work and upon reflection

I know that absolutely nothing stops the tears

Mmmm… nothing ever stops, nothing ever stops the tears
Mmmm… nothing ever, ever stops the tears

I never stop the tears

[Bells]

Only now when I am playing
Can I feel you deep inside of me
With my melody I’m praying
Praying hard for what could be
You and me, the way we used to be

Spoken: You know, baby, tell me you feel it too

[Instrumental]

You know damn well I don’t play piano
‘cause if I did I’d play you back to me
Oh yeah, we know so damn well I don’t deserve you

No, no, no, but baby I simply choose to believe

I simply choose to believe…

Me & You

Written By: John Nicole

ou & Me…

You’re telling me you think we’re just like day & night
I thought that’s exactly what you always liked
So now – to you -- the differences don’t feel so right
And we can never be together

You & Me…

You would always tell me we were just like fire and ice
And I was very naughty but you were so nice
Why’d you have to listen to your friend’s advice
Don’t you think you know much better

You & Me…

I would always make you happy when you were sad
And I could make you laugh when you got so mad
There was never any question ‘bout what we had
Two different points of view, it’s true!

You & Me
It never made much difference to me
Me & You
We were as different as different could be
You & Me
You were you and I was so me
Me & You
Together, we were meant to be

BREAK: You & Me…

Black and white, day and night
Up and down, left and right
You like fish and I like steak
I’d speed up, you’d start to brake
I’d drive fast, you’d go slow
I’d get high, you’d stay low
I’d stay home, you’d go out
I would whisper, you just shout

Arguing, making love, looking down or up above
Our differences made it fun

Begin different made us one

You & Me

We never made any sense to me

Me & You

We were different as we could be

You & Me

You were you and I was so me

Me & You

Together, we were meant to be

You and me, me and you, you and me, me and you

Happy Life

Written By: John Nicole

Happy New Year for the last time my dear
Do you remember how we welcomed every year?
With a hug and a kiss and a promise from our lips
We would always be together

Happy Valentine’s Day for the last time my lover
Do you remember how we loved beneath the covers?
With a candle and a song, we could never go wrong
We would just keep getting better

When I think of all the times we shared
Throughout the years, how much we cared
The thing I know we’ll miss the most is raising glasses in a toast
To celebrate those special days, the way we were at holidays

Happy Fourth of July for the last time, my girl
Do you remember how the fireworks would swirl?
With a hug and a kiss and a promise from our lips
We would always be together

And Happy Christmas for the last time, my love
Do you remember kissing with the mistletoe above?
With a candle and a song, we could never go wrong
We would just keep getting better

So, Happy Life for the last time, my friend
Do you remember how we thought we’d never end?
With a hug and a kiss and a promise from our lips
We would always be together
With a candle and a song, we could never go wrong
We would just keep getting better

When I think of all the times we shared
Throughout the years, how much we cared
The thing I know we’ll miss the most is raising glasses in a toast
To celebrate those special days, the way we were at holidays

With a hug and a kiss and a promise from our lips
We would always be together
With a candle and a song, we could never go wrong
We would just keep getting better

We would just keep getting better

Breathing Blues

Written By: John Nicole

You know people ask me why I like to sing the blues

I’m always so damn happy and I always spread good news
But baby there is something deep down in me
That loves to cry the blues – baby, won’t you cry with me

There is something ‘bout the blues that makes me wanna weep
I love the journey inward where it’s dirty, dark and deep
I love to feel the blues just flowing through my bones
Love to hear the wail of that old dirty blues saxophone
Play it for me…

This is how I feel…

Now I every time you hear me singing ‘bout the way I feel
You’ll know that what you’re hearing is what I think is real
And if it’s not real, who cares what you’re believing
For me it doesn’t get much better –
Baby, singing the blues is just like breathing, in and out now
Let me hear some of that blues…

…I’m feeling the blues

I love the flowers, I love the dirt
Baby, don’t you know I love when it hurts
I sing the blues…

Well, I love the good the things, I love the bad
Honey I love to be happy, but I do love to be sad
I love the blues - I could sing the blues all night and day
When I sing the blues I want you to go,
But baby I want you to stay…
When I sing the blues I want you to go,
But baby I want you to stay

I Do Love You (Go Away)

Written By: John Nicole

I do love you
There ain’t nothing left to say…
And because I love you
I want you to go away

It ain’t nothing that you did to me
There ain’t nothing you can do…
Baby, won’t you listen closely
One and one don’t make two

Dance With Me

Written By: John Nicole

I wanna chance just to dance with you baby

A little romance just a trance for two maybe

Over the dance floor we’ll glide with precision

Swirling an swaying – a beautiful vision

Let's dance - Dance with me

Play Ground

Written By: John Nicole

I guess I saw you just the other day

Walking home from school again
You were walking with a friend of yours
And I thought I heard you say…

Well, my boyfriend’s gonna leave me soon
That’s what your lips were movin’ to
I was sent to hand you what I had
Baby, I just know we’re through

You came home and told your mama
And you told you daddy, too
Cause they called me on the telephone
And said stay away from Mary Lou

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Now I guess I’ll go on down to Petey’s Place
Have a drink or maybe two
Think about the things I said to me
About the things you said to you

We keep talking to ourselves all day
Over-thinking what we feel
I don’t know what fantasy you’re in
But my love for you is real

I know that we can’t never be
Nobody understood

Don’t go goin’ out to the playground alone
Let me come and take your hand

There ain‘t nothin’ that we couldn’t do
Baby, let me take you home

[INSTRUMENTAL]

I guess there’s reasons why we can’t be here
In a spot we felt so good

We just managed through our destiny
Thinking about what we could maybe be

Honey, don’t you know that you’ll never see
If you listen to only me

I don’t know just what you want me to say
I could start all over yesterday

But today I’m gonna try and feel
What you believe is fantasy or real
I’m confused by what your friends all say
Today ain’t the day

I don’t know, I guess you go
You’re too young and I’m too old
I’m gonna get out on that highway and roll
