Lyrics

Tell Me Your Name

Written By: Jon Nistal

I saw you you walking down the street one Monday
You had a red dress on
I said I have to find out who you are

Hey! I saw you look at me
You better tell me your name tell me your name
Hey! If you wanna talk to me
You better tell me your name whats with these games

I never saw a woman act like you do
You got it goin on
i said why have i not met you before

Hey! I saw you look at me
You better tell me your name tell me your name
Hey! If you wanna talk to me
You better tell me your name whats with these games
Hey! I saw you look at me
You better tell me your name tell me your name
Hey! If you wanna talk to me
You Gotta tell me your name whats with these games.

Such a Long Time

Written By: Jon Nistal

You called me on the phone
You want to be with me tonight
A sudden change of heart
It doesn't matter, but i was right

And i really need a dose of medication sometimes
And i haven't had a decent conversation with you
It's been such a long time

We put the past behind us
We started hanging out again
I thought that it was fate
I love that we were more than friends

And i really need a dose of medication sometimes
And i haven't had a decent conversation with you
It's been such a long time

Now it's Time

Written By: Jon Nistal

She's got a bad taste in movies
She's got a lot of enemies
She's got a bad taste in music
But its quite alright with me

She tells me how to drink my coffee
Brings out the bad side of me
Yet still i can't help but like her
No matter how crazy she might be

When its time
I will take my hand and wipe your tears away
No need to be sad
I will give everything you need this time
I want you in my life

She doesn't give me a second
Relax i just need to breathe
Yet still i can't help but love her
No matter what it does to me

When its time
I will take my hand and wipe your tears away
No need to be sad
I will give everything you need this time
I want you in my life

Now its time
That i take my hand and wipe your fears away
No need to be sad
I will give everything i know you need
I need you in my life
