Lyrics

Find Myself

Written By: Kathy Duff,Music & Vocals by Paramount Song, Music & Vocals by Paramount Song

I’ve been gone so long
I don’t know how
to find myself again.
Nothing in the life I’m living
is familiar anymore.

I’ve become another person;
someone I don’t recognize.
Living someone else’s dream,
waiting for my time to come.

CHORUS:

Need to find myself…
holding out for something that’s not real
Need to find myself…
stop living this lie
find the person I was meant to be

Too many hours spent alone,
wishing I was some place else.
Wondering if I’ll ever get back
to the person I used to be.

CHORUS:

Need to find myself…
holding out for something that’s not real
Need to find myself…
stop living this lie
find the person I was meant to be

9/11 10th Anniversary Song

Written By: Kathy Duff,Music & Vocals by Chad Zimmermann, Music & Vocals by Chad Zimmermann

The sun keeps rising in the sky
Without ever answering why
My momma, she didnt have to die
The tears didnt have to fall from my eyes

You sent men to fight
That wont make it right
You built your neverending wall of tears
but that Won't bring back ten long lonely years

Chorus:

Momma's looking down from heaven
She wouldnt want it this way
She'd wouldn't want others to pay
no Momma didnt raise us that way

She sees the city once made of steel
She watches a nation try to rebuild
Momma look down from Heaven
help us to heal

She sees all the people
living in grief
Her death gave us freedom
the freedom , we need to live

Chorus:

Momma's looking down from Heaven
She wouldn't want it this way
She'd never want others to pay
No Momma didn't raise us that way

She wants to hear us laugh again
She'd never want us to just hide away
She wouldn't want hatred
She never raised us that way

Time To Let You Go

Written By: Lyrics by Kathy Duff,Music & Vocals by Paramount Song, Music & Vocals by Paramount Song

Time To Let You Go
Time for you to go now
don't want to see you leave
Trying to be strong
wipe your tears on my sleeve

Heaven came down to meet you
to guide you on your way
When it was time for you to go
you had nothing more to say

Watched you take one last breath
then watched you slip away
We know you are with us
we feel your love each day

Chorus:
Trying to get through the days
fighting hard to be strong
Grieving for ourselves
Don't know where we belong

It doesn't get any easier
Being here without you
So much we never got to say
things we never got to do

We roam around in emptiness
our days are not the same
Cant seem to find peace of mind
Since you went away

Chorus:
Trying to get through the days
fighting hard to be strong
Grieving for ourselves
Don't know where we belong

Christmas Love

Written By: Kathy Duff,Music by Edwin Itoh,Vocals by Alexander Perez

Verse 1:

Won't be long till they're playing
the same christmas songs
let me wrap my arms around you
let you know where you belong

Verse 2:

Santa can't bring me anything
that I would even need
I don't need any presents
underneath a Christmas tree

Chorus:

Keeping warm by the fireside
watching the stars as they fall outside
Come lie here with me
you're the only gift I'll ever need

Christmas lights they shine so bright
like loving you this winter night
all I need is you here with me
snuggling by my Christmas tree

Verse 3:

You're the gift that makes my dreams come true
I'm so wrapped up in loving you
I love the things you say to me
I love you being close to me

Verse 4:

We don't need presents under a tree
just as long as you're here with me
we'll spend the day, watching snowflakes fall
loving you.... is so wonderful

Chorus:

Keeping warm by the fireside
watching the stars as they fall outside
Come lie here with me
you're the only gift I'll ever need

Christmas lights they shine so bright
like loving you this winter night
all I need is you here with me
snuggling by my Christmas tree

Verse 5:

No need for bells or mistletoe
sparkling tinsel from the fires glow
you're all i want and so much more
don't know what santa would come here for
