Katherine Penfold will only rest once she’s sung for every music lover, worldwide.

Needless to say, this is a name you’re going to be seeing a lot more of in the very near future.

Lyrics

Love

Written By: Katherine Penfold

VERSE 1

There once was a boy so in love
He looked to the sky up above
Could anyone tell?
Oh he hid it quite well

VERSE 2

She looked in his eyes oh so blue
She smiled such a smile cause she knew
His heart beat for her
Of that she was sure

CHORUS 1

Does anyone see
Where we could be
If all we could dream was love
If all through the world
That boy and that girl
Could be what they’ve dreamed of
Of love, love, love

VERSE 3

The moon was out shining so bright
He loved how her hair caught the light
He knew it was true
And they both said “how I love you”

Now as the years have gone by
They both still have spark in their life
Its not just their health
Its love in its wealth, ooohhhh

CHORUS 2

Does anyone see
Where we could be
If all we could dream was love
If all through the world
That boy and that girl

Could be what they’ve dreamed of

Of love, love, love, love

Love

VERSE 4

There once was a boy so in love
He looked to the sky up above
Could anyone tell?
He hid it quite well

Shining Star

Written By: Katherine Penfold

I could drive this car for miles
til I find my way to you
and never will I think
there are better things to do

The words kept flowing on
My gentle running feet
And writing of the love
sailing on these seas

Cause I'm a shining star
And nothing can be far
When I am where you are...
And I'm waiting at your door
I'm waiting at your door
I'm waiting at your door

Like a child awaits the sun
Play with open arms
Feeling like the one
Who will revel in your charms

Cause I'm a shining star
And nothing could be far
when I am where you are...

And I'm waiting at your door
Yes I'm waiting at your door
I'll be waiting at your door
Darling, I am at your door.

This Time

Written By: Katherine Penfold, Brian James

VERSE 1

Drivin’ way too fast
Baby you’ll kill me
Knowing that we’re gonna last
Is something that thrills me
Love careening up and down
It’s everything it should
When we’re walkin’ round the town
Oh baby its good

PRE-CHORUS

I don’t wanna wait
That’s just tempting fate
Take me by the hand
And we’ll never look back oh

CHORUS 1

Its gonna be for us this time
I’m givin you my trust this time

I’m not letting go

VERSE 2

Some want to go to France
Do something romantic
Others like to do the dance
And live life frantic
Us two we’ve been here too long
To ever waste that time
Knowing that I am yours
And baby you’re mine

PRE-CHORUS

I don’t wanna wait
That’s just tempting fate
Take me by the hand
And we’ll never look back oh

CHORUS 1

Its gonna be for us this time
I’m givin you my trust this time
I’m not letting go

BRIDGE

There’s nothing else for us to do
But run away, just a place for two
If I can just feel you next to me
There’s no other way
There’s no other way

CHORUS 3,4

Its gonna be for us this time
I’m givin you my trust this time
Its gonna be for us this time
I’m givin you my trust this time
I’m not letting go

Are You With Me

Written By: Katherine Penfold, Brian James

VERSE 1

Take me
Like you have no other
With me
You will never need no
One to take my place

They try
To shake us down out of
The sky
But its where we belong
There ain’t no other way

PRE-CHORUS

You’re arms around me safe and warm
Love surrounding all the more

CHORUS 1

The lights up ahead may tell us no
(The lights up ahead may tell us no)

But where we are headed they’ll never know
(But where we are headed they’ll never know)

Baby are you with me (oh, oh, oohhh)
Baby are you with me (oh, oh, oohhh)

We’ll go speeding through the night
(We’ll go speeding through the night)

When the sun comes up we’ll see the sights
(When the sun comes up we’ll see the sights)

Are you with me (oh, oh, oohhh)
Baby are you with me

VERSE 2

You say
That I’m like an angel
I think
That I’m only just a girl
Till you came along

This love
Will go on forever
Our love
Is one to never die
We’ll watch the years go by

PRE-CHORUS

We’re just one against the waves
How I love the way you save me

CHORUS 2

The lights up ahead may tell us no
(The lights up ahead may tell us no)

But where we are headed they’ll never know
(But where we are headed they’ll never know)

Baby are you with me (oh, oh, oohhh)
Baby are you with me (oh, oh, oohhh)

We’ll go speeding through the night
(We’ll go speeding through the night)

When the sun comes up we’ll see the sights
(When the sun comes up we’ll see the sights)

Are you with me (oh, oh, oohhh)
Baby are you with me (oh, oh, oohhh)

The lights up ahead may tell us no
(The lights up ahead may tell us no)

But where we are headed they’ll never know
(But where we are headed they’ll never know)

Baby are you with me (oh, oh, oohhh)
Baby are you with me
