Lyrics

Freedom (Batallando)

Written By: Michael Humphrey

I’ve been down this road before I heard her say
And it’s different now I know it’s got to change
You close your eyes pretend everything’s alright
You don’t realize it’s not a game he plays you’re fighting for your life
Yeah your life yeah yeah your life yeah
When he arrives he heads straight for the bar
He pours himself a glass of gin and that’s how it starts
You close your eyes pretend everything’s alright
You don’t realize it’s not a game he plays you’re fighting for your life
Yeah your life yeah yeah your life yeah
Batallando por tu vida batallando por tu vida
Batallando por tu vida tu vida tu vida
In between the slaps that echo through the dark
You blame the love not his disease and take it hard
Close your eyes pretend everything’s alright
You don’t realize it’s not a game he plays you’re fighting for your life
Yeah your life yeah yeah your life yeah
Batallando por tu vida batallando por tu vida
Batallando por tu vida tu vida tu vida
I’ve been down this road so many times before
I heard her say this has got to change
In between the slaps and the bruises on her face
She tells herself that everything’s okay
But I’ve been down this road before I heard her say
And it’s different now I know it’s gotta change
Close your eyes pretend everything’s alright
You don’t realize it’s not a game he plays you’re fighting for your life
Yeah your life yeah yeah your life yeah c’mon

Looking At Me

Written By: Michael Humphrey

You beg so sweetly, with your pretty green eyes
Looking at me
I want to hold you in my arms and never let you leave
Oh you pretend you’re strong but you’re really
Waiting for a guy to come along and sweep you off your feet
Are you looking at me? Yeah
Are you looking at me? Yeah
I smell your perfume when you walk through the door
It knocks me to my knees
I see you smile, you light the room
I wish you were holding me
Oh I pretend I’m strong, but I’m really
Waiting for a girl to come along and make me feel complete
Are you looking at me? Yeah
Are you looking at me? Yeah
Look at me! Yeah
Look at me! Yeah
When will the rain let the sunlight in?
When will winds bring me seasons of change?
Where will I meet the one to be with?
How will I know your name?
Are you looking at me? Yeah
Are you looking at me? Yeah
Look at me! Yeah
Look at me! Yeah
You beg so sweetly with your pretty green eyes
Are you looking at me?

Night Wind

Written By: Michael Humphrey

I remember holding you so tight I never thought you’d be my bride
You were so young looking fine I knew I had to make you mine
Looking for a night wind I wanna feel a cool breeze on my face
Looking for a night wind take me far away from this place
Looking for a night wind yeah it’s time I saw a different face
Looking for a night wind yeah I’m running with the night wind
I remember playing carefree days skipping stones you told me everything is great
Then I reached another empty place I know I’ve got to turn this thing around somehow
Looking for a night wind I wanna feel a cool breeze on my face
Looking for a night wind take me far away from this place
Looking for a night wind it’s time that I found a different face
Looking for a night wind yeah I’m running with the night wind
Did you really think I’d stay after everything you said about me
Behind my back not to my face wonder where I’d be today
If I’d have left you where I found you
Now I’m looking for a night wind need a cool breeze on my face
Night wind take me far away from this place
A night wind time I saw a different face
A night wind running with the night wind
Yeah yeah looking for a night wind I need to feel a cool breeze on my face yeah
A night wind to take me far away from this place
A night wind it’s time that I saw a different face yeah
Night wind whoa I’m running with the night wind
