Lyrics

I Want to live

Written By: Robert Cini

I Want to live

Calling out to someone
Someone might understand
I know it’s hard to realize
I’m the only one
Who sees through these eyes

You turn around and say it’s the end
How can love have two different meanings

I want to be your strength
And see this love to the end
I want to live your way
And be the one to turn away
I want to live

On any given day
A wall should stand in my way
I’m not going back
I’ve tried all that
Rescue my self-esteem
Then you will see the best of me

I want to be your strength
And see this love to the end
I want to live your way
And be the one to turn away
I want to live

I know that your heart must be aching
But our love is slowly breaking
Ain’t it funny
How it’s harder for you
Then why do you make things
Harder for me

I want to be your strength
And see this love to the end
I want to live your way
And be the one to turn away
I want to live
I want to live

You're the light in my heart

Written By: Robert Cini

You’re the light in my heart

Beautiful
is what you are
A mystery just like a star
And I love the way you smile at me
feels like we’re meant to be

Can you hold me like you did
you did last time
falling to a kiss
and love on our minds
I’ve had this feeling
right from the start
You’re the light in my heart

Think about you
and see the reasons why
you’re everything to me in life
now I’m so scared
I’m going to lose you now
And every piece of my heart

Can you hold me like you did
you did last time
falling to a kiss
and love on our minds
I’ve had this feeling
right from the start
You’re the light in my heart
You’re the light in my heart

The sun through the shades
falls onto you
The memories will fade
but I don’t want them too
this distance ain’t good
for you and me
So don’t tell me I should leave
When you’re my reason to stay

Can you hold me like you did
you did last time
falling to a kiss
and love on our minds
I’ve had this feeling
right from the start
You’re the light in my heart
You’re the light in my heart
You’re the light in my heart

Give it a Shot

Written By: Robert Cini

Give it a Shot
By Robert Cini

Some other loving
Out on the street
You think about
Every woman you meet
You’d like to be the one
Who’s centre of attention

Show them what your not
Give it all you got
She just takes the lot
And, give it a shot

Come on
Give it a shot
She yells ready or not
Come on, come on
Don’t give up now

Come on
Give it a shot
She yells ready or not
I’ll give you loving
Whenever you need it

What’s the difference
They seem all the same
I want a woman that
Can light my flame
I like to party
But I sure ain’t insane

She looks hot
Give all you got
She just takes the lot
And, give it a shot

Come on
Give it a shot
She yells ready or not
Come on, come on
Don’t give up now

Come on
Give it a shot
She yells ready or not
I’ll give you loving
Whenever you need it

I’m not worried about arresting her
I don’t want no prisoner
I’ll let you lay me down, I’ll set you free
Free to do anything you need
Wandering around all your hands over me
I can’t breathe
Yeah breathe

Show them what your not
Give it all you got
She just takes the lot

Come on
Give it a shot
She yells ready or not
Come on, come on
Don’t give up now

Come on
Give it a shot
She yells ready or not
I’ll give you loving
Whenever you need it

Selfish

Written By: Robert Cini


I made a mistake I know
Please stop these feelings before I let them all go
For the reasons that I just don’t know
Don’t you know I tried
That I tried

Falling to my knees
Tell me when you get to feel your release
Careful or you’ll get too much of me
Don’t you say that I’m too nice
I’m too nice

And you say
You’re not my type of thing
It’s hard but I can’t explain
I’ve tried you and you’re ok
Don’t call me selfish
You’d probably walk away
Turn your back on today
Heard you screaming out my name
Don’t call me

I’ve heard it all before
I know how much you want me it clearly shows
Can’t bring yourself to tell me so I would fold
Don’t you tell me lies
Tell me lies

It’s ladies night I know
You’re only interested in all that glitters and gold
Would you settle for some flowers and movie show
Touching you I feel alive
Feel alive

And you say
You’re not my type of thing
It’s hard but I can’t explain
I’ve tried you and you’re ok
Don’t call me selfish
You’d probably walk away
Turn your back on today
Heard you screaming out my name
Don’t call me

No you don’t have to say goodbye alright
These bitter things that seem to fill your mind
Yeah,

And you say
You’re not my type of thing
It’s hard but I can’t explain
I’ve tried you and you’re okay
Don’t call me selfish

You’d probably walk away
Turn your back on today
Heard you screaming out my name
Don’t call me
Selfish, Oh Yeah
Selfish

Only Here For The Good Times

Written By: Robert Cini

Don’t think I don’t want you
Only think about you and me
Don’t think I don’t want you
I’d spend every night down on my knees
Don’t think that I have too
Please you cause your not my type
Don’t you think I know that
You’re using me just to get your high

You say what’s up with me
I say what’s up with you
You and me could blow this place to the moon
And leave without a trace
Like you meant it too

You’re only here for the good times baby
You’re only here for the good times
Every time you try to stuff me around
You’re only here for the good times
Good times
For the Good times baby

I think that you’re lonely
Always seem to get your share
I think that you’re phony
You just only want to get benefits
I see you controlling
Know your going to come undone
Eventually this will all get to me
And we won’t always be having fun

You say what’s up with me
I say what’s up with you
You and me could blow this place to the moon
And leave without a trace
Like you meant it too

You’re only here for the good times baby
You’re only here for the good times
Every time you try to stuff me around
You’re only here for the good times
Good times
For the Good times baby

You keep on saying that you want someone
I never said that you and me couldn’t get it on
I’m here for the fun and the long time too
Oh won’t you let me get in to get this message through to you

You’re only here for the good times baby
You’re only here for the good times
Every time you try to stuff me around
You’re only here for the good times

You’re only here for the good times baby
You’re only here for the good times
Every time you try to stuff me around
You’re only here for the good times
Good times
For the Good times baby

Haven't You Noticed

Written By: Robert Cini


I could spend some time getting to know you
I could surely rest my head

She spends a lifetime dreaming of me
I’ve got one thing to say.

Haven’t you noticed
The smile on my face
The things I’ve been doing
For you every day
Haven’t you noticed
Me walking around
You might see more clearly
If you knew me well
Haven’t you noticed

Nah Nah, Nah Nah.
Maybe you missed it
Nah Nah, Nah Nah.

I know I need to have ascertain
That’s never really been my style

She spends a lifetime dreaming of me
I’ve got one thing to say.

Haven’t you noticed
The smile on my face
The things I’ve been doing
For you every day
Haven’t you noticed
Me walking around
You might see more clearly
If you knew me well
Haven’t you noticed
Nah Nah, Nah Nah.
Maybe you missed it
Nah Nah, Nah Nah.

She spends a lifetime
She spends a lifetime
Only thinking why she hasn’t got to me yet
Yeah
I was thinking that you and me could take a walk
I know what you’d say, you probably would have never thought
I know it’s sad, I’m going back
Stop this
Give me
Something
Yeah
Yeah hey
Yeah hey

She spends a lifetime dreaming of me
I’ve got one thing to say

Haven’t you noticed
The smile on my face
The things I’ve been doing
For you every day
Haven’t you noticed
Me walking around
You might see more clearly
If you knew me well
Haven’t you noticed

Nah Nah, Nah Nah.
Haven’t You
Nah Nah, Nah Nah
Haven’t You Noticed
Nah Nah, Nah Nah

Haven’t you noticed me yet

Break My Heart

Written By: Robert Cini

Can we think about
All the things and the reasons for
this life, now you are mine
You’re not used to being treated right

But you haven’t got
But you haven’t got
The time to think about

Me and you we made a start
Remember me before you
Break my heart
I look fine, and you look tired
Remember me before you
Break my heart
Break my heart

It’s not like, all the same
What I’m feeling comes from a different place
You’re right how will we survive
Every night apart seems further inside

Of me there’s a vacant spot
For me that takes a lot
Of time to figure out

Me and you we made a start
Remember me before you
Break my heart
I look fine, and you look tired
Remember me before you
Break my heart
You break my heart
You break my heart
You break my heart
You break my heart

You don’t reply to my calls
Talk for a moment, I think you’ve moved on
The red shade of you
That you left on my pillow
Just tell me things haven’t changed
Yeah Yeah

But you haven’t got
But you haven’t got
The time to think about
Think about

Me and you we made a start
Remember me before you
Break my heart
I look fine, and you look tired
Remember me before you
Break my heart
You break my heart
You break my heart
You break my heart
Remember me before you
Break my heart
