What Did I Do?

Written By: Michelle Parsons

Light another cigarette
This conversation ain't over yet
There's so much more I gotta say

You think I said it all in the letter
Well you should know me better
I'd rather do this face to face

What did I do that was so bad?
What did I do to turn you cold?
What did I do to make you change your mind?
I wanna know what did I do?

In a shoebox beneath my bed
That's where the memory's kept
But a million questions still remain

One minute I'm the best thing
The next I know I'm the worst thing
and you won't even explain

What did I do that was so bad?
What did I do to turn you cold?
What did I do to make you change your mind?
I wanna know what did I do?

Well what did I do that was so bad?
What did I do to turn you cold?
What did I do to to bring about this change of heart?
I wanna know what did I do?

Can't you see I'm just trying to
Find some closure and get over you
I'm not asking anymore

'Cos when it's all said and done
Ain't you the lucky one
You found an easy way to close the door.

What did I do that was so bad?
What did I do to turn you cold?
What did I do to make you change your mind?
I wanna know what did I do?
I wanna know what did I do?

Light another cigarette
This conversation ain't over yet

Under My Skin

Written By: Michelle Parsons

You just crossed my mind again
I'm not sure how you snuck in so quietly

If it's your intention to
fill my every thought with you it's working

Every hour every day
I'm finding that there's no escape from wanting

Tease my senses 'til they ache
Twist my conscience 'til it breaks I'm falling into temptation

You started this fire
You flame my desire
You under my skin
You you're just like the wind
You gently breeze in
You under my skin

Woken from my sleep at night
I tell myself this just ain't right, it's no dream.

Passion that just won't subside
I have got no place to hide it's frightening

I feel the lust replace my blood
Anticipation fill me up you're calling
Take me to the brink and then
You seduce me once again I'm falling into temptation

You started this fire
You flame my desire
You under my skin
You you're just like the wind
You gently breeze in
You under my skin

Yeah you started this fire
You flame my desire
You under my skin
You you're just like the wind
You gently breeze in
You under my skin

Yeah you, you started this fire
You, you flame my desire
You under my skin
You you're just like the wind
yeah you, you gently breeze in
You under my skin
under my skin

You just crossed my mind again.

The Real Thing

Written By: Michelle Parsons

I did not mean to fall in love
it was the last thing on my mind.
Then you came along and colored my life.
I did not mean oh no to let you come in
I did not mean for you to capture my heart
but now you have and there ain't a thing I can do
Well I ain't gonna fight it 'cos baby I love you

And this time I know its the real thing
This time I know it for sure
You were sent from heaven above
You're all that I dreamed of
all that I dreamed of and more

I swear I'd given up ever finding true love and happiness.
But now you're in my arms I must confess
This kind of love it feels like nothing on earth
This kind of love, well it's just blowin' me away
Now here I am I finally came in from the cold
Let love touch my heart and love touch my soul

and this time I know its the real thing
this time I know it for sure
you were sent from heaven above
you're all that I dreamed of
all that I dreamed of and more

And now the darkness no it can't touch me no more
Now there's a light that's shining down on me
I held your hand and you, you've shown me the way
My heart was so empty but now there's a flame

And this time I know its the real thing
This time I know it for sure
You were sent from heaven above
you're all that I dreamed of
all that I dreamed of and more
all that I dreamed of and more
