Lyrics

To Feel This Feel

Written By: Netty Mac

To Feel This Feel – Netty Mac

You shed light on the dark corners of my Soul
You’ve paved roads that have taken a dear toll
You accept and love me for who I am
You always stand right where I stand

Somebody pinch me, for I am dreamin’
There’s no way this can be real
Somebody catch me for I have fallen
I can’t believe I get to feel this feel

I have never known such love in it’s purity
I have always and rightfully questioned its’ sincerity
I accept those roads because they led me to you
I love the way you do everything you do.

Somebody pinch me, for I am dreamin’
Theres no way this can be real
Somebody catch me for I have fallen
I can’t believe I get to feel this feel

We have what it takes to last many lifetimes
We complete each other without even trying
We have what most can only dream of having
We define the true meaning of loving

Somebody pinch me, for I am dreamin’
Theres no way this can be real
Somebody catch me for I have fallen
I can’t believe I get to feel this feel

I can’t believe I get to feel this feel

We Didn't Know

Written By: Netty Mac

We Didn’t Know – Netty Mac

Remember when there was a day when we couldn’t stand each others’ face
Sworn enemies we played the part, we set the tone right from the start
Those days when times we would meet by sneering from across the street
The game was on, the stare of ire, the need to remain one rung higher.

We didn’t know, how that game was gonna end
We didn’t know, we’d be the best of friends.
That night at the rodeo when we were standing nose to toe
We found we liked the heart behind the face.
With ease we both bowed down with grace

Remember when we’d play the Pats and yearn to win with all we had
Top of the league, yes they were good, but not unbeatable from where we stood
That year when we didn’t lose one game, we rocked the league and were headed for fame
Top of the ninth, one pitch away, Sue cracked the ball, we cried that day!

We didn’t know, how that game was gonna end
We didn’t know, that be the best of friends.
That night at the rodeo when we were standing nose to toe
We found we liked the heart behind the face.
With ease we both bowed down with grace

Remember when there was a time we’d hit the road and drive and drive
We’d sing like we were centre stage, the Judd’s and Tanya would have been amazed
Those days will always feed my soul, the lessons’ are what’s made me whole
Torn from enemies into Pals, that chapter I will always tell!

We didn’t know, how that game was gonna end
We didn’t know, that we’d be the best of friends.
And now twenty years have passed, ‘Can’t believe it went so fast
We beat the odds and friends we’ll always be
Two peas in a pod, that’s you and me

We didn’t know… We didn’t know

Please Help Me

Written By: Netty Mac

PLEASE HELP ME – Netty Mac

I woke up tired again this morning
Wishing I could just stay in that bed
I haven’t been sleeping too well lately
I have too many things running through my head

BRIDGE:
I couldn’t stand that raging train
It took me way too long to get off
I just want me back again
It’s taking way longer than I thought – it would

I’ve been down for so long now
I don’t know where to start of have the strength to change
I let the life get sucked out of me
And I’m having a hard time seeing me this way

CHORUS:
Please help me because I can’t see
That light inside that used to guide me along
Please help me I feel so empty
This way I feel is just so sick and wrong

SOLO (Verse)

CHORUS
Please help me because I can’t see
That light inside that used to guide me along
Please help me I feel so empty
This way I feel is just so sick and wrong

I woke up lost again this morning
Wishing I could just be me again
I try so hard to find that spark
But it always ends up right where it began

CHORUS
Please help me because I can’t see
That light inside that used to guide me along
Please help me I feel so empty
This way I feel is just so sick and wrong

I woke up tired again this morning.
Wishing I could just stay in that bed
