Lyrics

Confesar Mi Amor

Written By: Juan Cantu

Dia atras dia que yo miro tu rostro
Day after day I see your face

Siento tu alma vibrar
I can feel your soul vibrate

Tus ojos sonriendo, tu manera de ser
Your smiling eyes, the way you move

Pero no, no te puedo confesar mi amor
But no, I can’t confess my love to you

Va llegando el dia que me tengo que ir
The day is arriving that I’ll have to leave

Y romper de mi corazon
And tear from my heart

El pedazo que he guardado por ti
The piece that I have been saving for you

Anhelo que quizas un dia lo sabras
I hope that maybe someday you will know

Pero no, no te puedo confesar mi amor
But no, I can’t confess my love to you

En mis suenos ya te lo dije
In my dreams I’ve already told you

Te confese mi amor
I confessed my love to you
me dijiste que habias esperado sentir mi calor
and you told me that you had been waiting to feel my warmth

Te tomaria de tu mano y te daria un beso dulce
I’d take you by the hand and give you a sweet kiss

Pero por suenos no te puedo confesar mi amor
But through dreams I can’t confess my love to you

Passion

Written By: Juan Cantu & Jonathan Barr

I watch the sunset
And touch the ocean
Make a last wish as I think of you
Watching a bottle drifting out to sea
with my one last hope
Will you come back to me?

Fire doesn’t mean to burn
Glass doesn’t mean to cut
Love doesn’t mean break a heart that’s helpless
But how could I have known?
Like the bottle all alone,
You slipped away leaving just the memories of our

CHORUS
Nights Full Of Passion
Hours of Ecstasy
Moments of Pleasure
Electricity
If you want true love
Not just a fantasy
Then open up your heart and come right back to me

Day doesn’t end the night
Sun doesn’t end the rain
Time doesn’t end the hurt and heal my burning pain
Cause as the night takes hold
Surrounded by the cold
My heart betrays me as I keep on dreamin’ of our

Chorus

And in the night I’m all alone
I should have seen I should have known
Because the pain that rushes in
As thoughts of you fill me within
(Repeat)

Chorus

Now You're Here

Written By: Juan Cantu

We met that rainy day in May
I was looking for you
my heart hoped you’d be true
Every moment, every tear, every lesson, every cheer
Led to this one moment
Our paths had led us here

And on that rainy day in may
You were looking for me
My heart hoped you’d turn his key
We shared a smile, we shared a glance
Now I want you to dance my dance
This feels like a story book romance

CHORUS
Is this fate? Did I create this?
Doesn’t matter, ‘cause now you’re here
Take my hand, take my love
Here’s our song for you to hear
La, la, la, la, la, la

Somehow I’ll have to let this be
Try not live for you,
please don’t live for me
Let’s take it slow, the seed will grow
And we will see where this will go
Makes me crazy, ‘cause my heart wants to know

CHORUS

I always hoped that I would feel this
I can’t believe my dreams come true

CHORUS x2
