Lyrics

IF ONLY I COULD

Written By: SHIRLEY GOINES

If I could hold you in my arms again
I'd hold you so tight
never let you go
If I could whisper in your ears
I'd tell you all I've ever wanted you to know
If I could look into your eyes
or see your smile
I'd give my all
walk a thousand miles
yes I would
IF I ONLY COULD

If I could hear the sound of your voice
I'd cherish it till the end of time
If I could make you breathe again
I won't need my heart,
I'd give you mine
If I could live my life over
it would be all for you
there's nothing in this world
I'd rather do
yes i would
IF I ONLY COULD

The memories will never fade
the love we shared
and all you gave
will last until eternity
time nor space will separate
we'll always be in unity

If I could fulfill all my dreams
you'd be a part of everyone
and I'd say a little prayer
that when all's been said and done
you will have seen
how much you mean to me

If I could only borrow
just one more tomorrow
to take us to way back when
somehow I'll find my way to yesterday
so that we could be together once again
yes I would
IF I ONLY COULD

CALL JESUS (911 EMERGENCY)

Written By: Shirley Goines

When things look so bad
and you don't know what to do
you take one step forward
and fall back two
don't you be discouraged
It's not too late
make your move
don't you hesitate

better call him 911
It's an emergency
tell him I need you Lord
need you to rescue me
better call him 911
It's an emergency
tell him I need you Lord
I need you desperately

this whole world is spinning
spinning out of control
the devil is fighting
for your heart and soul
time is running short
things are out of hand
It's time to call on Jesus
or you don't stand a chance

better call him 911
It's an emergency
tell him I need you Lord
need you to rescue me
better call him 911
It's an emergency
tell him I need you Lord
I need you desperately

WE'RE FIXING UP OUR HOUSE(and breaking up our home)

Written By: Shirley Goines Lee Catterson

We put up a new fence today
even planted a new tree
everything's looking picture perfect
except for you and me
it looks so good on the outside
who would have known that

We are fixing up our house
and breaking up our home
the years keep rolling on
I want to know how we
can repair a love so torn
tell me who's been fooling who

Took a walk by our neighbors today
with our painted smiles
walking hand in hand as they say
hearts separated by miles
the years have come and gone
and look what we own

We're fixing up our house
and breaking up our home
the years keep rolling on
I want to know how we
can repair a love so torn
tell me who's been fooling who

I don't want to believe
it's all just decoration
that inside of these four walls
there's no need for celebration
don't let this be a hopless situation

We're fixing up our house
and breaking up our home
the years keep rolling on
I want to know how we
can repair a love so torn
tell me who's been fooling who

GO AHEAD MAKE MY DAY

Written By: SHIRLEY GOINES , Lee Catterson ,Alastair Halsall

I know the sun has just come up
you haven't opened up your eyes
laying here beside you
all i ever do is fantasize

I know that i am being selfish
just can't help myself this time
baby what you do to me
can't think of nothing else
but fantasize

So love me like you did last night
I wouldn't have it any other way
so love me let's go all the way
I'm hooked on your love
now I need my fill

Come on girl Make my day
Go ahead girl make my day
Come on girl make my day
Go ahead girl make my day

There's nothing that i would not do
If i could only make you see
I'm yours girl you got me
that's where i want to be
is by your side

What you bring out of me
is the sweetest thrill
I can't help myself this time
baby what you do to me
I can't think of nothing else
but fantasize

So love me like you did last night
I wouldn't have it any other way
so love me let's go all the way
I'm hooked on your love
now I need my fill

Go ahead girl make my day
come on girl make my day
Go ahead girl make my day
come on girl make my day

WHY NOT ME

Written By: Shirley Goines,Jordan Rothstein

WHY NOT ME

Life will give
and life will take
this much I've learned
but I never gave up faith in myself

The time has come
I can hear it now
it feels so right
knowing soon I will know
what it's like when everyday dreams come alive
why can't I ooh why cant't I

WHY NOT ME
to have the stars align
WHY NOT ME
to claim my place in time
WHY NOT ME
to touch the moon
WHY NOT ME
to sing for you

It's all there I've been told
if you dare take hold
of what's there for you
so I kept on climbing toward the sky
believing why can't I

WHY NOT ME
to live my life alive
WHY NOT ME
to show it's worth a try
WHY NOT ME
to be the new
lucky one to sing for you

It's been a long road
paved with fears and hopes
but now I'm finally home
cause I believed
yes I always believed

WHY NOT ME
to scale the mountain high
WHY NOT ME
to laugh so hard I cry
WHY NOT ME
to be the one
to shine just like the sun
to shine just like the sun

Why not me to fly,to fly
why can't I
why not me to touch the sky
why not me
why can't I, why can't I
La,la,la,la,la,
WHY NOT ME

ONE NIGHT LADIES MAN

Written By: SHIRLEY GOINES

Here it is another Sunday morning
after one of your Saturday nights
still out there doing the town
don't care what's wrong or right
listen this is getting old
and I'm not getting younger
so I'll tell you what honey
go on and satisfy your hunger

Cause,YOU'RE A ONE NIGHT LADIES MAN
that girl won't see you again
just as fast as you came
it'll come to an end
all you're good for is a one night stand
YOU'RE A ONE NIGHT LADIES MAN

Yes I'd been hearing rumors
didn't believe anyone else
but you got caught red handed
now I see it for myself
I gave you so many chances
don't think it wasn't rough
to give you all of my love
and find it just wasn't enough

YOU'RE A ONE NIGHT LADIES MAN
that girl won't see you again
just as fast as you came
it'll come to an end
all you're good for is a one night stand
cause, YOU'RE A ONE NIGHT LADIES MAN

YOU'RE A ONE NIGHT LADIES MAN
not good enough for me
I'm better off without you
that' why I set you free
all you're good for is a one night stand
and this girl needs more
than a one night ladies man

YOU'RE A ONE NIGHT LADIES MAN
that girl won't see you again
just as fast as you came
it'll come to an end
all you're good for is a one night stand
cause, YOU'RE A ONE NIGHT LADIES MAN

COLOR ME BLUE

Written By: SHIRLEY GOINES, KEN WILLIAMS

If our love wasn't meant to be
tell me why do we feel the way we do
If our dreams can't help us to see
that they could all come true
what good did we share
in our joy and laughter
If we can't bear the pain
sometimes after

so if you ever paint a picture
of the love we knew
COLOR ME BLUE
and if you ever paint a picture
of my losing you
COLOR ME BLUE

Yes I know your heart has been broken
now you feel you have no more to give
but please believe the words i've spoken
without your love I might not want to live
what good did we share
in our joy and laughter
If we can't bear the pain
sometimes after

so if you ever paint a picture
of the love we knew
COLOR ME BLUE
and if you ever paint a picture
of my losing you
COLOR ME BLUE

I didn't mean to neglect you
but all I did was reject you
like a kid with no sense of time
I let your love slip through these hands of mine
I was blind to what a good thing I had
It's my fault our love went bad
It hurts me so to know that I lost
but I set the price now I'm paying the cost

If you ever paint a picture
of the love we knew
COLOR ME BLUE
If you ever paint a picture
of my losing you
COLOR ME BLUE
