Lyrics

Let's Put It To The Test

Written By: Len Mormino, Beth Kille

V1
You say you’re the best
even if it’s true
I’ll need more than talk to see if the right stuff is inside of you
Like a new star that’s brilliant
from the depths of space
You could blaze across this sky
and disappear without a trace

Prechorus
No one can touch you
You’re hot as the sun
but do you have what it takes
to get the job done?

Chorus
Let’s put it to the test
I wanna be impressed
If you really want this
Make me believe
Let’s put it to the test

V2
Now you’ve got the vision
You’ve got the style, yes you do
But when no one’s watchin’
Have you got the heart
to go the extra mile?

Prechorus
You want your name in lights
your face in the news
So in it to win
but what would you lose?

Chorus 2
Let’s put it to the test
I wanna be impressed
If you really want this
make me believe

Bridge
Everybody’s got a weakness, Everybody takes a fall
When everyone’s forgotten you, will you be true, be true to you?

Chorus 3
Let’s put it to the test
I wanna be impressed
If you really want this
make me believe
That heaven sent you down here
to be everything I need
You wanna take this world
You’ll have to start with me

Closing
Let’s put it to the test
Cause I don’t need a savior
don’t need a friend
What is your best?
Will it bring me to life
when I feel dead?
Let’s put it to the test
Let’s put it to the test
Let’s put it to the test
Let’s put it to the test

V1
Jasper moon risin’
on a diamond dust field
Little Shawn winds a fast ball
and closes the deal
I take a little swig from a
brown bag in the stands
He walks on passed me
fast as he can, takin’

Prechorus
Little steps
little steps to big, big things

V2
Few years down the road
he wakes me on the floor
Clears away my beer cans
from the night before
Sais dad think about momma
and her last words
Boys God asked me over
his directions simply take

Prechorus
Little steps
little steps of faith and

Chorus
Shoot for the horizon
cast all my doubts in the air
and from here on
no mountain will
turn me around ‘cuz
Little steps will get me there

V3
Now Shawn’s slidin' the tassle
to blend in the crowd
As I wave a Jim Beam
to all the cap and gowns
He's gonna play college ball
leave that job at the station
Said Dad my Ford’s loaded
god help you, I’m takin’

Prechorus
little steps
little steps to my big dreams
I’m gonna

Chorus 2
Shoot for the horizon
cast all my doubts in the air
From here on no mountain
will turn me around ‘cuz
Little steps will get me there

Bridge
Like a colt barely walkin’
in a mesquite sun
Little steps will get you thru
the race you were born to run

V4
Dear son I failed you
but I’ve learned from your love
And mom’s up there smilin’
at the man you’ve become
Me I’m 1 month off the bottle confessin’ every sin
God gave me 12 steps where I must begin, and I

Chorus 3
Shoot for the horizon
I wanna cast all my doubts
up in the air
Shawn from here on
no mountain will turn me around ‘cuz
Little steps will get me there,
yeah little steps will get me there
Little steps will get me there
Little steps will get me there
Little steps will get you there

Feel You Next To Me

Written By: Len Mormino, Dan Plourde

V1
I don't mind waiting
For a chance to be with you
A perfect moment
Is existing only to

Chorus
Feel you next to me
Close my eyes and see
This whole world opening
While I feel you next to me

V2
When clouds are breaking
And moonlight finds it's way down to
My body shaking
My soul finally waking to

Chorus
(same)

Bridge
Way back alone in my room
A silhouette of your face
Is all I ever knew
Let go of the schoolboy's dream
That kept you away from me
Nothin' but skin is in between us now

Chorus
Feel you next to me
Close your eyes and see
This whole world opening
While I feel you next to me
