Lyrics

RADIO ROMEO

Written By: Ian Randall Wilson/Rebecca Dru

It's a cloudy night, it'll rain tonight
The road black, unendin'
With my car my guide and the sounds beside
On myself I am dependin'
See I wouldn't agree when he reached for me
My virtue ain't that easy
So I'm all alone on this long ride home
With a DJ try'n to please me

Chorus :
Radio, Radio Romeo
sing your sweet love song
Radio, Radio Romeo
carry me along
A voice from the speaker
A name with no face
You carry me closely
All over the place
Radio, Radio Romeo
sing your sweet love
sing your sweet love song

Well it's party time and I'm feelin fine
The drive was uneventful
Hey for now I'm home but I'm set to roan
With one less temperamental
So I'm on my way to a better day
As I search for one I like
But in the meanwhile, I'll get a big smile
From the man behind the mic

Chorus :
Radio, Radio Romeo
sing your sweet love song
Radio, Radio Romeo
carry me along
A voice from the speaker
A name with no face
You carry me closely
All over the place
Radio, Radio Romeo
sing your sweet love
sing your sweet love song

Don't touch that dial
Turn me up
Play me all night long

Chorus :
Radio, Radio Romeo
sing your sweet love song
Radio, Radio Romeo
carry me along
A voice from the speaker
A name with no face
You carry me closely
All over the place
Radio, Radio Romeo
sing your sweet love
sing your sweet love song

Cara Luna Amica

Written By: Testo: Pauline Priore Musica: Rebecca Dru e Ricardo Osorio

Ti affacci Cara Luna Amica
Da dietro tante fitte nuvole
È sempre d'oro il tuo cuore
Che illumina bene l'orsa maggiore
Sei misteriosa e magica

Dimmi quante storie d'amore
Conosci mia Cara Luna Amica
Ascolti spesso dolci segreti
E tanti belli desideri lieti
Sei davvero un incantevole splendore
coro : Cara Luna Amica.......Cara Luna Amica
Le promesse d'un grande amore
Per tutta la vita
Ti fanno brillare
Gli occhi innamorati
E così appassionati
mia Cara Luna Amica

Senti racconti di complicità
Fra fidanzati e amorini
Che creano occasioni
Di provare emozioni
MENTRE EMANI GIOIA E FELICITÀ

coro :

Do You Ever Think Of Me

Written By: Lyrics: Susan Santiago Music: Rebecca Dru

Its been so many years now
Since we said our goodbyes
We both went our separate ways
And continued with our lives
You found another lover
Someone to share your dreams
But I was lost for quite some time
Like I was swimming hard upstream

Do you ever think of me
When the moon is full and bright
Do you ever think of me
When your driving home at night
Does your mind ever take you back
To the good times that we shared
When your lost in your thoughts
Do you ever think of me

When I finally found my way again
I realized what we shared
Would always be a part of me
Though you no longer cared
My new love often tells me
That I mean the world to him
But I can’t stop wondering where you are
And what life could have been

Do you ever think of me
When the moon is full and bright
Do you ever think of me
When your driving home at night
Does your mind ever take you back
To the good times that we shared
When your lost in your thoughts
Do you ever think of me

And although we live in different worlds
and we are miles apart
Sometimes I often ask myself

Do you ever think of me
When the moon is full and bright
Do you ever think of me
When your driving home at night
Does your mind ever take you back
To the good times that we shared
When your lost in your thoughts
Do you ever think of me

I Can Hardly Breathe

Written By: Lyrics: Susan Santiago Music: Rebecca Dru

I wake up every morning
And I drive to work each day
I turn the radio up loud
So my mind won’t drift away
To the last day we were together
When I felt so far apart
I knew what we had was over
I could feel it in my heart

I can hardly breathe
when I see you
I can hardly speak
when you walk by
I can hardly stop
Myself from crying
I can hardly breathe
Since you said goodbye

I try to get to work real early
So I can get my head on straight
I sit in the car and wonder
How long that I should wait
Before I walk into the building
And pass right by your door
The walls are closing in on me
I can’t take it anymore
Cuz

I can hardly breathe
when I see you
I can hardly speak
when you walk by
I can hardly stop
Myself from crying
I can hardly breathe
Since you said goodbye

But the truth is that I just can’t wait
To be near you one more time
It’s so hard for me to let you go
Cuz

I can hardly breathe
when I see you
I can hardly speak
when you walk by
I can hardly stop
Myself from crying
I can hardly breathe
Since you said goodbye

Sand in My Shoes

Written By: Lyrics: Susan Santiago Music: Rebecca Dru

When I was young I spent my days
along the shore
My friends and I would walk for miles
eager to explore
The sandy beach with all its gifts
waiting to be found
Colored glass and broken seashells
treasures in abound
I’ve got
Sand in my shoes
Ocean breezes in the air
Sand in my shoes
Life without a care
Sand in my shoes
The wind blowing though my hair
No matter where I travel
I’ll always have
Sand in my Shoes

We’d spend hours riding the waves
Rolling in the sand
Never tiring from the day
Thinking life was grand
As the sun began to set
A colorful red glow
We’d slowly gather up our things
We didn’t want to go
I’ve got

Sand in my shoes
Ocean breezes in the air
Sand in my shoes
Life without a care
Sand in my shoes
The wind blowing though my hair
No matter where I travel
I’ll always have
Sand in my Shoes

As I look back and remember
The salty air caressing my face
I know that I will always dream of

Sand in my shoes
Ocean breezes in the air
Sand in my shoes
Life without a care
Sand in my shoes
The wind blowing though my hair
No matter where I travel
I’ll always have
Sand in my Shoes

There Goes Love

Written By: lyrics: Phyllis Molinary Music: Rebecca Dru

THERE STANDS THE DOOR
THAT'S SOON TO CLOSE
WE'LL SMILE OUR BRAVE GOODBYES
AND SAY, WELL, THAT'S THE WAY IT GOES

WE ALMOST WON
WE CAME SO CLOSE
BUT SOMEWHERE ON THE WAY
WE FOUND OURSELVES ON DIFFERENT ROADS

LOOKING BACK WILL BE THE HARDEST THING TO DO
WHEN WE ADD UP ALL OUR MEM'RYS AND DIVIDE THEM BY TWO

CHORUS:
THERE GOES LOVE
THERE GOES LOVE
HOW DID WE LET IT GET AWAY
IT WAS DEEPER THAN NIGHT
IT WAS RIGHTER THAN RIGHT
WHAT DID IT TAKE TO MAKE IT STAY
IT WAS RIGHT THERE IN OUR HANDS
WE COULDNM'T HOLD IT ANYMORE
THERE GOES LOVE, THERE GOES LOVE
RIGHT OUT THE DOOR

NOBODY'S WRONG
NO ONE'S TO BLAME
THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS
IS THE FEELING'S NOT THE SAME

I GUESS THERE'S JUST NO SURER SIGN THAT LOVING ENDS
AS WHEN THOSE WHO SAID, "I LOVE YOU" SAY,
"CAN'T WE STILL BE FRIENDS"

CHORUS:

Take My Hand

Written By: Susan Santiago

Why don’t we take a ride in your old car
To a place we’ve never been
We’ll drive until we find a bar
we’ll stop and walk right in
We’ll find one that plays old music
Love songs nice and slow
Then you can hold me in your arms like you used to do
We’ll let all our troubles go

Take my hand and dance with me
Until the night is done
Take my hand and dance with me
Tell me I’m the only one
Take my hand and dance with me
I want you to hold me near
Take my hand and dance with me
Make my heartaches disappear

Don’t be afraid this is our chance
To do something wild and free
Let’s stay up late and dance all night
Won’t you please agree
We’ll find a bar that has a jukebox
The lights turned way down low
You can whisper in my ear the words I so want to hear
Until it’s time for us to go

Take my hand and dance with me
Until the night is done
Take my hand and dance with me
Tell me I’m the only one
Take my hand and dance with me
I want you to hold me near
Take my hand and dance with me
Make my heartaches disappear

Remember when we used to talk
And stay awake all night
Remember when we had no cares
And everything seemed right........

Take my hand and dance with me
Until the night is done
Take my hand and dance with me
Tell me I’m the only one
Take my hand and dance with me
I want you to hold me near
Take my hand and dance with me
Make my heartaches disappear

Just Because

Written By: Rebecca Dru and Carole Blake

I love the way you - reach for my hand
I love the way you - tell me my wish is your command
Do you understand...
I love the way you - smile with your eyes
I love the way you - look at me when you are surprised
So don’t even try…

To figure out…That’s what love’s about…no doubt
There’s no other way…to say
The words right from my heart
I want to say to you

CHORUS: Just because…just because
I love you…Oh baby I do
Just because…just because
I love you…oh baby I love you

I love the way you - call out my name
I love the way you - keep me protected from the rain
And shield me from the pain…
I love the way you - move when we dance
I love the way you – the way you say the word ‘Romance’
So glad you took the chance…

To figure out…That’s what love’s about…no doubt
There’s no other way…to say
The words right from my heart
I want to say to you

CHORUS: Just because…just because
I love you…Oh baby I do
Just because…just because
I love you…oh baby I love you

And you may ask the reasons
And you may count the whys
But in the end
The only thing that matters is…

CHORUS: Just because…just because
I love you…Oh baby I do
Just because…just because
I love you…oh baby I love you
