Lyrics

Become Me

Written By: Mike Baker

Verse 1
I see the questions, I know I’m trembling
The evening’s slipped away but I don’t want to let you go
If life were perfect I’d never have to leave you
Would you take just one more glance before I have to go?

Chorus
Can you see the man that I could be
The life that I could lead
If you’d just take me by the hand
Can you hear angels whisper have no fear
The sweet passing of the years
I swear I’d never let you down

I’ll find the answers, I’ll just keep searching
I’d never give up, I’d never hurt you
You inspire me, can you love me in spite of me?
Please, please help me… become me.

Verse 2
I sense your worries, your hesitations warranted
I’ve tried to change before but the world’s beat me down
But things are different with you beside me
Maybe our chance has passed but I simply need to know

[Chorus]

You inspire me, can you love me in spite of me?
Please, please help me… become me.
Please, please help me… become me.

You Would've Loved Me

Written By: Mike Baker

Verse 1
You’ve been so long looking
Hoping you could find someone
That your heart could understand
You’d know him when you met him
Only been apart since heaven
But things don’t always go as planned because

[Chorus]
You never knew me
Only knew my foolish pride
You saw right through me
But somehow missed the man inside
There’s no changing to be someone you can see
But if you only knew who I was already
You would’ve loved me

Verse 2
Well time won’t come begging
Asking for a second chance
Just keeps slowly moving on
And you may never miss him
But someday if love goes missing
Perhaps you’ll realize he’s gone because

[Chorus]

Seasons come and seasons go
You passed me up but girl I know
If you knew me

[Chorus]

Thinking Place

Written By: Mike Baker

Verse 1 - Him
Little rock and a great big pond
Next to the bench that I’m sitting on
Lapping water and azure sky
Seagulls hover as clouds roll by
She used to tell me what I could be
Somehow she saw something amazing
We were only friends back then
But she’d sit and listen for hours and then
I close my eyes and drift away
But I’m feeling blue today

Chorus - Him
Because I miss her
Because I know what we could be
Because I need her arms around me
Because I love that tender smile and face
Because she’s all I see in my thinking place

Verse 2 - Her
Wooded path the sun sparkles through
Like golden rain and forest dew
Dripping dreams along the way
These birds sure have a lot to say
Telling stories he takes my hand
Spinning dreams of some future land
He makes me laugh like no one can
He sees inside of me, and somehow then
I close my eyes and drift away
But I’m feeling blue today

Chorus - Her
Because I miss him
Because I know what we could be
Because I need his arms around me
Because I love his boyish grin and face
And somehow he's slipped into my thinking place

Bridge - Combined
Can’t make up for lost time
Years have come and years have gone
But I’ll never let, no I’ll never let her/him go again
If only I could freeze time
Because what I have is what I want
Oh I’ll never let, no I’ll never let her/him go again

[Chorus] - Combined

Like an Angel

Written By: Mike Baker

Verse 1
I see you glance my way
With mystery in your eyes
And I still can’t believe
You’re here with me tonight
The world is dancing round
As we stand still I catch my breath
And you are everything I’ve ever wanted

Lift
Though not too long ago
I’d have never known I’d be standing here
Doing more than looking for a reason to go on
And not too long ago
I was hoping for someone who I could
Stand beside and that was when you came along

Chorus
Like an angel reaching down from heaven
When I fall you lift me up again
Like a shelter from the raging storm
Wrap your wings around me to keep me warm
Like an angel

Bridge
And when I’m drowning, waves are crashing in
And I felt beaten down by the world I’m in
When I need answers, and I can’t seem to find them
When I’m at the point of giving in

Chorus 2
Like an angel reaching down from heaven
When I fall you lift me up again
Like the answer to a silent prayer
I look up and see you standing there
Like an angel you come and save me
Like an angel

[Chorus]
