Dear Baby

DEAR BABY
Lyrics and Music by Richard Frankz

Dear Baby
You came into my life and gave me love
Left no doubt within my mind
I will love you through all time
There will never be another one

Who could ever love me like the way you do
True devotion is what I receive from you
Love as honest as can be
Purist heart I’ll ever see
So I’m asking of you baby

Chorus:
Dear Baby
Stay and love with me
Share my life and my dreams with me
I so much believe
Our love’s destined to be
Cherish you always
Dear Baby
Cherish you always
Dear Baby

Dear Baby
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do
Spend my lifetime showing you
That my world evolves from you
There will never be another one

Who will ever look upon you like I do
Seeing all the beauty that’s inside of you
Seems like heaven where I stand
Honored just to be your man
Please I’m asking of you baby

Chorus:

So I’m asking of you baby

Chorus:
Cherish you always
Dear Baby
My Dear Baby

I Ask (Amanda)

Written By: Richard Frankz

I ASK (AMANDA)
Music and Lyrics by Richard Frankz

I ask
Just how
Did you grow up on me
So fast

Amanda, seems like only yesterday
Daddy’s little girl
In your careless days
This is all I ask

I ask
Though you
Now have your own life to live
Don’t pass

Little moments just to call and say
I love you Daddy
And that you’re okay
This is all I ask

Quite a lady you’ve grown up to be
In my eyes child
You’ll always be
That same ole little girl
That I adored
Guess it’s only
The father in me
Amanda could you still
Find time for me
This is all I ask

I ask
A little time to mend
Those broken dreams
You’ve had

Amanda, no words
I could ever say
Convincing you
This time I’ll stay
But this is all I ask

I ask
On that special day
You’ll call and say
Please Dad

Take my hand and walk
With me this day
Give your little girl
Away and say
I’m honored that you asked

Quite a lady you’ve grown up to be
In my eyes child
You’ll always be
That same ole little girl
That I adored
Guess it’s only
The father in me
Amanda could you still
Find time for me
This is all I ask

Quite a lady you’ve grown up to be
In my eyes child
You’ll always be
That same ole little girl
That I adored
Guess it’s only
The father in me
Amanda could you still
Find time for me

Quite a lady you’ve grown up to be
In my eyes child
You’ll always be
That same ole little girl
That I adored
Guess it’s only
The father in me
Amanda could you still
Find time for me

Amanda, could you still find time for me
Amanda, could you still find time for me

This is all I ask
This is all I ask
This is all I ask

Holding On

Written By: Richard Frankz

HOLDING ON
Lyrics and Music by Richard Frankz

I can’t find any reason why
And I don’t know what it is
That keeps me coming back for more

I can’t escape that thought of you
And the way you make me feel
Sending chills right through my bones

Chorus:
You’ve got me hold, holding on
That spell you cast on me is strong
Finding myself so caught-up in it
And there’s nothing I can do

I can’t believe
I’m still holding on
Holding on
Holding on
Holding on

Seems you’ve turned the table’s round on me
Got me acting like a fool
I’ve never been this way before

My head feels like its spinning
Body’s burning through and through
Nervousness I can’t control

Chorus:

Chorus:

I can’t believe
I’m still holding on
Still holding on
Still holding on
Still holding on
I’m still holding on

Still holding on
Still holding on

Knew You At All

Written By: Richard Frankz

KNEW YOU AT ALL
Lyrics and Music by Richard Frankz

I’ve thrown away your memories
Laid my pain to rest
You can’t hurt me with your lies anymore

The kind of selfish love you breed
Is something I don’t really need
Leaving you was my best choice

Chorus:
For when you told me that you loved me
Didn’t realize you played me for a fool
But there’s a calmness now inside me
And I owe my thanks to you
It’s like I never knew you at all
At all
At all
At all

How could I have believed in you
After all you put me through
Starting out from lies you told

For years I’ve tried to make you see
Taking trust away from me
Left me loving you no more

Chorus:

Chorus:

Chorus:
Knew you at all

Don't Let My Heart Know

Written By: Richard Frankz

DON’T LET MY HEART KNOW
Lyrics and Music by Richard Frankz

Communication’s broken
There’s trouble in our home
Seems we have nothing
In common anymore

We’re like strangers passing by
We’re now living separate lives
Can’t understand it
Where we went wrong

Chorus:
But if you must go
Go quiet if you can
Cause I don’t think my heart
Could understand

Leave a note upon the door
You’re not coming home no more
Don’t let my heart know
That you’re gone

Set a table just for two
Like life is still with you
I’ll go on pretending
Nothing is wrong

I’ll bring home roses every day
As if you’ve never gone away
Hoping I find you
Waiting at home

Chorus:

That you’re gone

Chorus:
Don’t let my heart know
That you’re gone
Don’t let my heart know
That you’re gone

Over and Over

Written By: Richard Frankz

OVER AND OVER
Lyrics and Music by Richard Frankz

What the hell am I doing wrong
Haven’t learned one thing at all
Making the same mistake everyday

Contemplating a new way
Maybe even make that call
Seeking some help through a more modern way

Chorus:
Over and over again
I keep falling
Over and over again
Flat on my face
Man it’s getting pretty painful
Not enough to change my ways
Over and over again

Hearing talk of a new way
There’s a pill that cures it all
Seeing it more and more everyday

Started taking it daily
Side effects I can’t recall
Memory is gone
Don’t know what time of day

Chorus:

Ad-lib:
Just when I thought I’d seen everything
And it couldn’t get much worse

I’m faced with the fact
Flat on my back
Just taken another one

Still trying to find
The reasons why
This keeps happening to me

It’s over and over again

What the hell am I doing wrong
Haven’t learned one thing at all
Making the same mistakes everyday

Contemplating some new ways
Maybe even make that call
Seeking some help through a more modern way

Chorus:

Over and over
Over and over
Over and over again

Over and over
Over and over
Over and over again
