Waiting to know

Written By: Irina Gligor

Waiting to know

Music by: George Popa
Lyrics by: Irina Gligor

Verse 1:
Every time you kiss me
Every time we touch
I’m waiting for the answers
That I need so much

Every time you hold me
Every time
I’m searching for the truth
That lies behind your eyes
So tell me yes or no
Are you for real?

Chorus:
I’m waiting for the answers
I’m waiting for this love to grow
Waiting to know, waiting to know
I’m waiting for you baby
I’m waiting for your love to show
Oh What I need to know
What I need to know
What I need to know
Waiting to know, Waiting to know
Waiting for you baby
I’m waiting for your love to show
Oh What I need to know
What I need to know
What I need to know
Oh What I need to know

Verse 2:
Every time the sun shines
Every time it rains
Every time the wind blows
My heart sings your name

I know it, I’ll prove it every time
But do you feel the same babe
Each and every time?
That’s why I need to know
Are you for real?

Get to you

Written By: Irina Gligor

GET TO YOU…
Music: George Popa
Lyrics: Irina Gligor

VERSE1:
I made a promise to love you for good (babe),
Never give you up
All my life.
So this song I sing for you,
Want to let you know,
That when you are far,

I’ll be right,(THERE)
Right there by your side
At lest in your mind
I’ll be there all the time.

CHORUS :
THERE IS NO MOUNTAIN THAT’S TOO HIGH,
‘CAUSE I WOULD EVEN TOUCH THE SKY,
TO GET TO YOU,
THERE’S NOTHING I WON’T DO
THERE IS NO MOUNTAIN TOO HIGH,
‘CAUSE I WOULD EVEN TOUCH THE SKY,
TO GET TO YOU,
THERE’S NOTHING I WON’T DO
_____________________________
TO GET TO YOU! (love)

VERSE 2:
Life is like a maze you get caught up in,
A game of hide and seek,
In which you try to find your heart.
But the game has long ended for me,
‘Cause I found you babe,
And I will be,

Forever, forever by your side,
At least with my mind,
I’ll be there all the time.

CHORUS :
THERE IS NO MOUNTAIN THAT’S TOO HIGH,
‘CAUSE I WOULD EVEN TOUCH THE SKY,
TO GET TO YOU,
THERE’S NOTHING I WON’T DO
THERE IS NO MOUNTAIN TOO HIGH,
‘CAUSE I WOULD EVEN TOUCH THE SKY,
TO GET TO YOU,
THERE’S NOTHING I WON’T DO

CHORUS FINAL:
BACKING
THERE IS NO MOUNTAIN THAT’S TOO HIGH,
‘CAUSE I WOULD EVEN TOUCH THE SKY,

Oh,I WILL GET TO YOU,

BACKING
THERE’S NOTHING I WON’T DO

THERE IS NO MOUNTAIN TOO HIGH,
‘CAUSE I WOULD EVEN TOUCH THE SKY,
TO GET TO YOU,
THERE’S NOTHING I WON’T DO
