Lyrics

Summer Nights

Written By: Kat Orlando


Slight hint of a breeze
Silent sway of trees
your silouette in my vision
Always gets me so enticed

Shut the world away
From loves getaway
Tonight baby we’ll embrace and
Do just what we love

And its nice to know that you love me
the way that I do you
just you and me the whispering trees
shadows on the wall

(I love) Summer nights and you
(I love) Summer nights and you

I love the smell of rain
Evenings in late june
shades billow from a view
of our private meeting place

I love it when you gaze
In my eyes knowingly
Come on baby we wont rush
Our time together

And its nice to know that you love me
the way that I do you
just you and me the whispering trees
shadows on the wall

(cuz I love) Summer nights and you
Summer nights and you

The only place I want to be
Is lying here with you
The stillness of the evening
the moon fading into view
hugging kissing then we laugh
I just want this night to last
Don’t ever stop your lovin' baby
Don’t ever stop your love

(cuz I love) Summer nights and you
Summer nights and you

Wednesday's Girl

Written By: Kat Orlando and Christine Kennedy

Don’t ask him many questions
He didn’t come to talk
Came sneaking by again yesterday
I saw him saunter up your walk

While he’s so very busy
His secretary slots you in
Mondays are out, Thurdays well maybe
Wednesdays are best for him

He makes you feel like nothing
Nothing in this world
You show up on his calendar
You know your just Wednesdays girl oohh

Wednesdays girl
He’s so successful can’t you understand
you're nothing but Wednesdays girl
Climb up the corporate ladder holding her hand
Wednesdays girl ooh oh
Sit alone til Wednesday comes around
Wednesdays girl
He’s at your door, barely makes a sound

You stare off toward the garden gate
That opens wide for him
You love him but you don’t know
The ice your skating on is thin

He knows all of your secrets
When he gave you none
Then turned his back and walked away
After he had his fun

He makes you feel like nothing
Nothing in this world
You show up on his calendar
You know your just Wednesdays girl

Wednesdays girl
He’s so successful can’t you understand
you're nothing but Wednesdays girl
Climb up the corporate ladder holding her hand
Wednesdays girl ooh oh
Sit alone til Wednesday comes around
Wednesdays girl
He’s at your door, barely makes a sound

He says I don’t want to hurt you
But he goes back to his wife
You have all your reasons
You can’t have him to yourself
You have no illusions
You don’t need anyone to tell you
That you’re not his world
so don’t ask him any questions 'cause you're
Wednesdays girl.

He’s so successful can’t you understand
Climb up the corporate ladder holding her hand
Sit alone til Wednesday comes around
He’s at your door, barely makes a sound

Something About You

Written By: Kat Orlando

Got me feeling the way I want to feel
Got me dreaming and yet I feel its real
Got me squealing I’m like a little girl
Boy you don’t have to stop

When you hold me its like a fairy tale
When you rock the wind blows in my sail
And you know boy that you never fail
Bring out the woman in me

Theres something bout you that makes me smile
Yeah theres something bout you like a child
Theres something bout you Im sure that I’ll
Come straight home to you

When you’re with me And we’re on the town
Then we come home And you lay me down
You do more than Make my world go round
You answer all my dreams

Got a light that shows in your eyes
Always got me got me hypnotized
And you see me as your only prize
I’m here for only you

Something about you got me going strong
Lovin’ you I can’t go wrong
Boy, you got me flyin’
Something about got it goin’ on
With you that’s where I belong
You got me You got me
