Lyrics

I'm Ready

Written By: Shannon Marie

Hey you, you said that I would never amount to anything
Hey you, you laughed in my face when I was following my dream
Yeah, we'll see
Well this is me now
You’re gonna see me for me

For so long I've prayed and I know that there's no other way...

I'm ready
ready to sing
ready to spread my wings and fly over anything
I'm ready
ready to soar
ready for this whole life and so much more
I'm ready

Hey you, you say that I’m a long way from where I should be
Hey you, you’re talking bout me like I am way out of my league
Yeah, we’ll see

If they say you aren’t strong just look at me I’m holding on...

I'm ready
ready to sing
ready to spread my wings and fly over anything
I'm ready
ready to soar
ready for this whole life and so much more
I'm ready

Girl's Night Out

Written By: Shannon Marie

Baby boy, open your eyes
and see this new day we've been given
Baby boy, open your heart
Let's start a new day has risen

We've been through this before/ We've been shown a new door
Times have been tough, but I know that our love's enough
And I'll try one more day/ If I know that you'll stay
I give you my all won't you please, please take my hand

Baby boy, I love you so
Let's take this new chance we've been handed
Baby boy, don't want you to go
We can get through this together
Let's make a new start

We've been through this before/ We've been shown a new door
Times have been tough, but I know that our love's enough
And I'll try one more day/ If I know that you'll stay
I give you my all won't you please, please take my hand

Baby boy, open your eyes
and see this new day we've been given
Baby boy, open your heart
Let's start a new day has risen
