I Would Give Anything

I Would Give Anything
by Stephen Pisani (copyright 2010)

I never thought there’d come a time
I’d find the one that I could not resist
I try to make your eyes meet mine
You look ahead like I just don’t exist

I would give anything
To be with you...
And bring out sensations
You never knew

There’s so much I could do for you
So many ways to make you feel so fine
I wanna taste you all night long
Up and down, until the end of time

I would give anything
To be with you...
And bring out sensations
You never knew

Baby, give me half a chance
Let me spend this night alone with you
Maybe we can find romance
Baby, this was meant for me and you

I would give anything
To be in you...
And bring out sensations
You never knew

In and Out of Dreams

In and Out of Dreams
By Stephen Pisani

Whether it’s a daydream
Or a vision by night
You’ll be mine forever
You think that I could have romance with you
Never knowing things that I should do

In and out of dreams
I see you
In and out of dreams
Don’t wake me up
Or I’ll lose this feeling
Your dream is mine
For all eternity

Bewitched by your charms
With empty arms
Like the lovers we are in our dreams
Everything’s so real, or so it seems

In and out of dreams
I see you
Catch me before I fall

Like the lovers we are in our dreams
Everything’s so real, or so it seems

In and out of dreams
I see you
In and out of dreams

Until the day comes when you will be mine
You know that I’ll be dreamin’ all the time

In and out of dreams
I’ll love you
In and out of dreams
I’ll hold you
In and out of dreams
I’ll touch you

It Really Doesn't Matter

It Really Doesn’t Matter
by Stephen Pisani

Everyone says I should let you alone
They say that I’m losing my style
But I never saw anyone lookin’ like you
And making it all worthwhile

So it really doesn’t matter
If I find the words to say
I would give you almost anything
To make you see my way

And if I ever made you mine
I could love you all the time
I can see things aren’t so clear
All I want is you right here… with me

This isn’t a feeling that I could ignore
And maybe I’m wastin’ my time
But I think about lovin’ you all night long
And suddenly losin’ my mind

So it really doesn’t matter
If I find the words to say
I would give you almost anything
To have you for one day

I never thought I could ever want you more
Now I’m callin’ your name like a thousand times before

And if I ever made you mine
I could love you all the time
I can see things are so clear
All I want is you right here…

The Hardest Thing To Do

The Hardest Thing to Do
by Stephen Pisani, (c) 2010

I know I'm wrong
For leaving you this way
I tried so long
To find why I should stay

It isn't like you
Had done anything wrong
It's just being here
Feelin' I don't belong
I can't understand
Why the hardest thing to do
Is sayin' "I love you"

I guess it's time
For me to say goodbye
I'll walk away
And I don't wanna see you cry

I wish I could find
The right words to say more
To keep me from walkin'
Right outta that door
I know that you need to find
Someone new
'Cuz I can't stay with you

I know that you've always
Been faithful to me
You know that I loved
Only you
But if I stayed
I'd be livin' a lie
That's somethin' I can't do

It isn't like you
Had done anything wrong
It's just being here
Feelin' I don't belong
I can't understand
Why the hardest thing to do
Is sayin' "I love you"

It's Over Now

Written By: Stephen Pisani

It’s Over Now
by Stephen Pisani

It’s over now
I’ll take the loss
And when you ran
I paid the cost

I never wanted anyone
The way that I want you
A million nights of emptiness
With nothing left to do

But it’s over now
And I don’t know if
I’ll make it through

I see you smile
But not for me
In just a while
My tears find me

I never wanted anyone
The way that I want you
A million nights of emptiness
With nothing left to do

But it’s over now
And I don’t know if
I’ll make it through

The pain gets stronger every day
Will it ever go away

I never wanted anyone
The way that I want you
A million dreams could come to me
But none could equal you
But it’s over now
And I don’t know if
I’ll make it through
And I don’t know why
You’d want me to

Tonight
Tonight

That's What It's All About

Written By: Stephen Pisani

That's What It's All About
by Stephen R. Pisani

I can't seem to tell
By the look in your eye
Ya thinkin' of me,
Or some other guy?
I may have some doubt,
But that's what it's all about.

You say you're my baby,
And always been true
You're drivin' me crazy,
The things that you do.
You scream and you shout,
But that's what it's all about.

All I need to be near you
Is just a little smile.
And if I'm gone tomorrow,
I would have left in style.

So think on it, baby,
Give it a chance;
It's so hard to find
The perfect romance.
You're throwin' it out,
That's what it's all about…

We're throwin' it out,
That's what it's all about…

We're throwin' it out,
That's what it's all about…

Just Once More

Just Once More
By Stephen Pisani

Where do I go from here
Where am I going to start
And how am I going to heal
The emptiness in my heart

I know that it’s over
But I don’t know what to do
You showed me it’s easy
To find somebody new

Livin’ inside myself
Wonderin’ where you’ve been
Out on my own again
Will I ever win?

I know that it’s over
But I don’t know what to do
I found out the hard way
There’s no more me and you
Anymore

(instrumental bridge)

I know that it’s over
But I don’t know what to do
I’m hopin’ someday
You will want me too

Like before…
And maybe I could hold you
Just once more

All Right All Night

All Right, All Night
By Stephen Pisani

How was I left to know
How to make it
Love takes time, and you know
You can’t fake it

Then she said “Let’s not pretend,
“You know a broken heart will mend,
“We could be so much more than friends…”

I’ll make it all right
All night
So slow
We’ll go

Let me take you away
Where there’s no return
You’re afraid to go on
By yourself

Then she smiled and held me tight
And said, “Babe, we got all night,
“We could share the morning light…”

I’ll make it all right
All night
So slow
We’ll go

I felt dizzy in my head
When she led me to the bed
Then she took my hand and said

I’ll make it all right
All night
So slow
We’ll go
All night
It’s so right
Take it so slow
Then we’ll go
It’s all right
All night

Why Is it So Wrong

Why Is It So Wrong
By Stephen Pisani © 2011

She left a note with these words written down
I’m goin’ nowhere in this nothin’ town
I saved up all the money that I could
And took myself a trip to Hollywood

Though I want you, yes I do
Gotta make my dream come true

Why is it so wrong to be in love with you?
Holding your photograph
Is all that I can do
We were so close, that’s for sure
But you needed so much more

Got a letter postmarked NYC
Guess LA was never meant to be
You write the city chills you to the bone
But God forbid that you should come back home
And there’s nothing I can do
To replace the thought of you

Why is it so wrong to be in love with you?
Holding your photograph
Is all that I can do
We were so close, that’s for sure
But you needed so much more

Why is it so wrong to be in love with you?
Holding your photograph
Although I know we’re through
And I don’t know what to do
Cuz the dream I dreamed was you…

All I wanted

All I Wanted
By Stephen Pisani

I think about the nights we said “Forever”
I always felt inside we’d never end
All I wanted was someone who needs me
Never knowing that life’s so unfair
And I suppose you’ll see
There’s someone in this crazy world for me
All I wanted
All I wanted
Was you

Where the road will lead we’ll never know
Destiny has left nowhere to go
All I wanted was someone who needs me
Any other would be just a friend
As time goes by, you’ll see
I would have waited an eternity
All I wanted
All I wanted
Was you
