My lyrics are heart felt and soul moving. If one person is moved by my words and are left with the feeling that someone else understands, and they are not alone, then I've been successful.

Biography

Music has always been a positive influence in my life. When I hear a great artist deliver a message through song, it is truely a soul moving experience for me. I feel that everyone can relate to my lyrics.

I'm Glad You Called

Written By: Melissa Summerson

I’M GLAD YOU CALLED

You say you need to tell me somethin’
But you’re not quite sure how
Maybe it’s time we start talkin’
Maybe we should start right now

For a while now I’ve been feelin’
You haven’t been honest with me
Just know today and always Baby
I’ll be here when you need me to be

I’m Glad You Called

You are my child,
Sent to me from above
He is my husband
The man I chose to love

You say that you’ve been angry
And don’t understand the things I do
Why do I go on lovin’ him
When at times he seems so cruel

Your heart is full of hurt and blame
And you think that I’m a fool
You don’t want to forgive him
And you don’t understand why I do

I’m Glad You Called

You are my child,
Sent to me from above
He is my husband
The man I chose to love

Even though your image of him
Is something that I see through
I’m able to feel his warmth and love
And I pray one day, that you feel it too

Not one of us is perfect
We must forgive and then forgive again
Relationships are full of feelings we don’t expect
Only love can take us back to where we began

You are my child,
Sent to me from above
He is my husband
The man I chose to love

I’M GLAD YOU CALLED

Quick Judgments

Written By: Melissa Summerson

QUICK JUDGMENTS

We place blame where we shouldn’t
We say things we regret
We feel betrayed by those who wouldn’t
Is it possible to forgive and forget

Why do we doubt ourselves and listen
When we know we’ve been falsely accused
Inside the voices are fightin’
We feel hurt, angry and abused

QUICK JUDGMENTS
For those who cause the fear inside
SWIFT PUNISHMENTS
We feel we are justified

Before long we lose our focus
We don’t listen to your point of view
Please lord forgive us
For we know not what we do

QUICK JUDGMENTS
For those who cause the fear inside
SWIFT PUNISHMENTS
We feel we are justified

Wars of all sizes
Are fought in the name of protection
Being right the greatest of prizes
Is it worth the pain and ramification

Will we ever accept the ways of others
And be happy with who we are
Will we allow you to guide us
And to protect us from all harm

QUICK JUDGMENTS
For those who cause the fear inside
SWIFT PUNISHMENTS
We feel we are justified

Before long we lose our focus
We don’t listen to your point of view
Please lord forgive us
For we know not what we do

QUICK JUDGMENTS
For those who cause the fear inside
SWIFT PUNISHMENTS
We feel we are justified

Help us let go of our grudges
And with each other be content
Help us hear your loving message
And accept the blessings you have sent

Give us strength to admit our mistakes
And to have faith you will pull us through
To forgive the destructive words we give and take
Let us react in the way you want us too

QUICK JUDGMENTS
For those who cause the fear inside
SWIFT PUNISHMENTS
We feel we are justified

Before long we lose our focus
We don’t listen to your point of view
Please lord forgive us
For we know not what we do

Overtime Lovin

Written By: Melissa Summerson

OVERTIME LOVIN’

I rush in
Racing the time
My mind is still workin’
Workin’ on overtime

But when our eyes meet Darlin’
You punch the clock
What was I thinkin’
You kissed me and I forgot

You say, “Hi there, Sweetie.”
“I’m glad my honey’s home”
My burdens aren’t as heavy
And I’m sure glad I’m home

It’s past time Darlin’
We need some Overtime Lovn’

I know we’ve both been longin’
For some Overtime Lovin’

We’ve both been needin’
Some Overtime Lovin’

We’ve both been wantin’
To make some Overtime Lovin’

It was so long ago that I found you
Together we have grown
It was true the day that I met you
And we still love each other so

Let’s make some Overtime Lovin’

It’s past time Darlin’
We need some Overtime Lovn’

I know we’ve both been longin’
For some Overtime Lovin’

We’ve both been needin’
Some Overtime Lovin’

We’ve both been wantin’
To make some Overtime Lovin’

It’s just you and me now Honey
Let’s chase the world away Darlin’
No more workin’ for the money
Let’s make some Overtime Lovin’

I know we’ve both been longin’
For some Overtime Lovin’

We’ve both been needin’
Some Overtime Lovin’

We’ve both been wantin’
To make some Overtime Lovin’

It’s past time Darlin’
Let’s make some Overtime Lovin’

Prayer for the Red, White and Blue

Written By: Melissa Summerson

PRAYER FOR THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE

They were called into battle
By the leader our country chose
Families were left behind to handle
Their lives that have been put on hold

They fight for the red-
Their own blood, they bravely shed
They fight for the white-
Please Lord, surround them in your light
They fight for the blue-
From their battle Lord, please pull them through

Through their sacrifice they remind us
The meaning of unity, faith and justice
Our opinions may sometimes divide us
But united we stand for our troops

Who fight for the red-
Their own blood, they bravely shed
Who fight for the white-
Please Lord, surround them in your light
Who fight for the blue-
From their battle Lord, please pull them through

When we see our flag flying it’s colors
We say a prayer for the red, white and blue
They stand, they fight, for their lives and others
For our country, for me and for you

They are the Red-
Their own blood, they bravely shed
They are the White-
Please Lord, surround them in your light
They are the Blue-
From their battle Lord, please pull them through

We may not agree on whether justice is served
Or if the cause is right or wrong
Many blessings for you, we agree are deserved
We send this prayer for you, united in song

We pray for the Red-
Your own blood, you bravely shed
We pray for the White-
May the Lord surround you in his light
And for the Blue-
From your battle we pray, may the Lord pull you through

DON'T PUSH ME AWAY

Written By: Bill & Melissa Summerson

DON’T PUSH ME AWAY

You’ve spent your whole life runnin’
Locking your heart up tight
For true acceptance you’ve been yearnin’
And for someone willing to fight

Trust that I am the one, Baby
Whose love you can always depend on
I may not have all the answers
Together, I know we can find them

So Baby please,

(CHORUS)
Don’t push me away
I don’t want to go
Don’t try to scare me away
I’m stronger than you know

Come to me when you’re lost
Come to me, and let’s find our way
In solitude we hurt the most
Let me love you, I want to stay

Together, let’s battle those demons
And the ghosts haunting us from your past
Don’t let the fear of rejection
Cause you to run and never look back

I promise not to judge you
No matter what anyone else says
Please remember that I love you
Not only today, but forever and always

So Baby please,

(CHORUS)

Only our secrets can destroy us
Once shared, they lose their power
Honesty, our only deliverance
Only our love can rebuild the fire

My heart is open Baby
I trust you with the key
Please don’t lock the door on me now
Alone is not where you’re meant to be

I’m beggin’ you, please

(CHORUS)

Let me take you in my arms
I want to wipe away your pain
We can win the fight against all harm
Just let me love you Baby, don’t push me away

HELP ME DOWN

Written By: Melissa Summerson

HELP ME DOWN

You put me on this pedestal
And it’s not- where I want to be
From here my fall could be fatal
I’m askin’ you please, please Baby help me….

Help me down
Give me your hand and hold on tight
Help me down
Give me you love, let’s do it right
Help me down
Show me your passion again tonight

Can’t you see, I’ve never been perfect
And you used to love me anyway
My flaws that you once overlooked
Over time, have made you turn away

You’re no longer willing to forgive me
You just expect me to get it right
From here, your frustration is all I see
Please help me Baby, I’m afraid of heights

Help me down
Give me your hand and hold on tight
Help me down
Give me you love, let’s do it right
Help me down
Show me your passion again tonight

(Repeat chorus)

(Break)

Baby please,

Help me down

And make love with me tonight
