Lyrics

The Week Long Fling

Written By: Madelyn Cascio

I fell in an instant
It was love at first sight
We looked into each other’s eyes
Everything was just right
But there’s something you failed to mention
You’ve got someone back at home
Well, I’d never want to be the other girl
But I want you to know

I know she doesn’t love you the way that I do
Although I’ve only known you for a week or two
But baby can’t you see what we could be
If I loved you
And you loved me
But I don’t want this to be
Just a week-long fling

You took me to a mountaintop
The one where lovers go
We looked up at the stars above
And the town down below
Forgetting my fear of heights
Remembering this moment
The moment where we almost kissed, but we resist
Babe, I’ve got to have more than this

I know she doesn’t love you the way that I do
Although I’ve only known you for a week or two
But baby can’t you see what we could be
If I loved you
And you loved me
But I don’t want this to be
Just a week-long fling

Babe I hope its more than a week long thing
Cause it hurts me so
And that’s why I cry at night
Cause, baby, I need you more

I know she doesn’t love you the way that I do
Although I’ve only known you for a week or two
But baby can’t you see what we could be
If I loved you
And you loved me
But I don’t want this to be
Just a week-long fling

Still Got You On My Mind

Written By: Madelyn Cascio

I’ve been thinking bout you babe
I’m finding it hard to get along
I’m so sorry I hurt you
I’m sorry that I treated you wrong
They said the only cure would be time
But babe I still got you on mind

I find it hard to believe
What we had is gone for good
Believe me baby
I’d take it all back if I could
Let’s just leave it all behind
But until then you’ll be on my mind

Everyday
I walk by your place
And our eyes meet through that window
And I can tell
By the look on your face
That you still have me on your mind

So baby please just let me in
Just for a little while
It’s pouring down outside
And can’t you see that I’m crying
You know there’s a reason
That we’ve been on each other’s minds

But you turned walked away
My heart was torn in two
I thought I’d wander in the rain
Until the pain subdued
So I’m still wandering
But babe I’ve still got you on my mind

Don't Come Crying To Me

Written By: Madelyn Cascio

Early on, I felt so vulnerable
Couldn’t get you off my mind
But babe it’s been three years and I’ve cried my tears.
So here’s a toast to getting over you
I had to get over your ‘cause

Your one moment of weakness caused you years of pain
You can’t go back. You can’t undo. Just won’t be the same
You know you were the one who was unfaithful to me
So when you get lonely, don’t come crying to me

You showed up at my door with some roses
And a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau
But it’s too cliché and it’s just too late
But thanks for the flowers and fine wine
Do you remember the time when

Your one moment of weakness caused you years of pain
You can’t go back. You can’t undo. Just won’t be the same
You know you were the one who was unfaithful to me
So when you get lonely don’t come crying to me

Do you remember the time
Your one moment of weakness caused you years of pain
You can’t go back. You can’t undo. Just won’t be the same
You know you were the one who was unfaithful to me
So when you get lonely don’t come crying to me

Everything You Need

Written By: Madelyn Cascio

Why are you scared? What you running for?
I ask myself as I think of more
Reasons why I should stay behind and not go
But I know it could lead to a place
Where I’d succeed not leaving a trace
Of where I’ve been cause I know life holds more for me.
But doesn’t it seem strange
That everything, everything is falling into place

Why should I run
If everything, everything says you’re what I need
Tell me I am the one
And I will be everything, everything, everything you need
Everything you need

Taking a step with both my eyes closed.
No safety net. I’m purely exposed
To falling down. Is this even the way?
I guess that this has to be the right
Path I am on. Cause everything in life
Has lead me this way. It’s just a leap of faith.
Tell me just what you want
Cause I can’t read your mind, you see. Is it me your thinking of

Why should I run
If everything, everything says you’re what I need
Tell me I am the one
And I will be everything, everything, everything you need
Everything you need


Somehow I know
I should not leave
I should not go

Why should I run
If everything, everything says you’re what I need
Tell me I am the one
And I will be everything, everything, everything
Why should I run
If everything, everything says you’re what I need
Tell me I am the one
And I will be everything, everything, everything you need
Everything you need

I Plan On Loving You

Written By: Madelyn Cascio

Tell me what’s on your mind
I can tell that you’re not doing too fine
I’ve come to offer you consolation

Take it just how you want
You act so nonchalant
As if you hear this thing all the time
Saw you the other day
You turned and walked away
I just wanted you to say

I plan on holding you
I plan on kissing you
I plan on loving you tonight
I plan on needing you
I plan on loving you tonight

Why do you look confused
As if you’ve been accused
Of some kind of terrible crime
You know what I want to do
And you say its taboo
But we both know the truth

I think I know the key
Just spontaneity
To spice up our lives
Don’t need no dull routine
I’ll take it sight unseen
As long it feels right
Just for tonight

I plan on holding you
I plan on kissing you
I plan on loving you tonight
I plan on needing you
I plan on loving you tonight

Can Friends Be Lovers

Written By: Madelyn Cascio

(Verse 1)
Hush. Hush. I won’t tell if you won’t tell. You’re just so hard to resist
Under normal circumstances we wouldn’t be doing this
But I’m alone and you’re alone. And we’re just two people with needs.
No hesitation, hold me close. We’ll start with a kiss
And won’t you please baby…

(Chorus)
Touch me in a way you’ve never touched me before
Close your eyes and pretend that we are more
Though I’m not your significant other
If lovers can be friends, can friends be lovers

(Verse 2)
Furrowed brow, bighting lip, a gentle tug of the hair
Let’s play a game. Your pick. How ‘bout truth or dare?
I’ll take truth. The truth is that I’ve never had a secret love affair
Well I don’t mind. There’s nothing to it. So just come over here
And won’t you please baby

(Chorus)
Touch me in a way you’ve never touched me before
Close your eyes and pretend that we are more
Though I’m not your significant other
If lovers can be friends, can friends be lovers

(Chorus)
Touch me in a way you’ve never touched me before
Close your eyes and pretend that we are more
Though I’m not your significant other
If lovers can be friends, can friends be lovers
