Lyrics

Angel (original composition)

Written By: Joyce Collins

Angel
Why do you go and hurt yourself
Don’t be afraid to ask for help
Please don’t shut me out

Angel
The world keeps turning round and round
Life can sometimes really get you down
Keep trying to be strong

Sometimes we all hurt inside
This world can be so cruel
Just reach down deep inside
And feel the strength and warmth within
~~~~
Sometimes we all hurt inside
This world can be so cruel
You gotta reach down deep inside
Believe the strength and warmth within

So Angel
Resist all bad destructive talk
Purely think of only happy thoughts
Your mind can be strong
Your mind can be strong

Perfect Personality (original composition)

Written By: Joyce Collins

I don’t have a perfect personality
Sometimes I’ll speak before I stop and think
I know sometimes you wonder, what does she mean?
But please remember I’m only trying to do my thing, hey hey

I see a bright blue sky and clouds are trying to hide it
I feel the sunshine, it brightens up my day
I love to feel your soothing arms around me
Cause you alone are gonna keep my clouds away

I may not have a perfect personality
Sometimes I’ll speak before I stop and think
I know sometimes I drive you a little crazy
But please remember I’m only trying to do my thing

Do my thing yeah
Do my thing
Do my thing oh yeah
I’m tryin’ to do my thing
Hey hey

~~~~

You see I may not have a perfect personality
Sometimes I’ll speak before I stop and think
I’m so grateful that you are understanding
And you remember I’m only trying to do my thing.

Do my thing Do my thing
Do my thing Do my thing Do my thing
I’m trying to do my thing yeah
Do my thing Do my thing
Do my thing,
I’m tryin to do my thing

Getting Over You (original composition)

Written By: Joyce Collins

How could I not know
You cared the way you did
How could I not see
The way you looked at her

How could I guess
You would cheat on me the way you did
You simply lied to me
And still it hurts

You took a piece of me when you left
And now I can’t seem to find myself or get a grip
You hurt me bad
You never even asked me how I felt
You simply lied to me, and I’m still
Getting over you
Still getting over you

How could I not know
One day you’d crush my heart
How could I not see
I fully trusted you

When you fully trust someone you believe they will do the right thing to you
When you fully trust someone you believe that they won’t lie
When you fully trust someone it can scar so deep if the trust is broken
When you fully trust someone

You took a piece of me when you left
And now I can’t seem to find myself or get a grip
You hurt me bad
You never even asked me how I felt
You simply lied to me, and I’m still
Getting over You

Still getting over you
Still getting over you
Getting over you
I’m still getting over you

So Sexy (original composition)

Written By: Joyce Collins

Take your coat off and stay a while
Have a drink you lookin’ mighty fine
No need to rush we got all night
Oh Honey, You look sexy tonight

So Sexy So
So Sexy So

Take your coat off and stay a while
There’s somethin’ here that’ll satisfy ya
Turn the lights down no need to speak
Come in closer I can feel you breathe

So Sexy So
So Sexy So

Take your coat off just stay a while
Did I mention my appetite?
You look delicious can I take a bite
(stop) Oh Honey, You look sexy tonight

So Sexy So
So Sexy So

Your so sexy baby
Your so sexy baby
Your so sexy baby
Oh Honey you look sexy tonight
