Lyrics

Love's Right Here

Written By: Stephen J Barlow

when you were a young girl
you thought I lived under your pillow
you'd leave your dreams and your wishes there
and a lock of hair
busy making faces
at the boys who made fun of your braces
too young to know the bliss
of a first kiss

slow dancin' in the high school gym
the boy of your dreams
wasn't him
and you thought you'd never find me

Chorus:
higher than the mountains
deeper than the deepest blue sea
I know that you've been looking
everywhere, trying to find me
you're looking high and low
everywhere you go
but I've been here from the start (oh girl)
Love's right here in your heart.

On the college campus
frat boys and overnight romances
too many broken dreams
or so it seemed
up the social ladder
business meetings and endless chatter
late nights in the bar
and kisses in the car

he's not the man you'd hope you'd meet
the man of your dreams
coming down the street
you thought you'd never find me

(CHORUS)

when you feel your heart beating strong
you gotta know that's me
and I've been here all along
right where I belong

(CHORUS)

There In Your Eyes

Written By: Stephen J Barlow

When do you know
that the one that you're looking for's
knocking at your door
is there a sign
a fluttering in your heart
maybe a falling star

that you used to wish on
forgotten when you were young
now shining bright there in your eyes.

Your eyes they speak a thousand words
and I think I heard you
calling to me across the room
my heart went boom
andI know that you heard me reply
I could see it there in your eyes.

So how do you know
that it's not just a game
and you're feeling the same
for me - can't you see
that I just want to be the one
not just your night of fun

forgotten when daylight comes
and you slip away
show me you'll stay
there in your eyes.

(chorus)

That's how I know
that it's not just a game
and you're feeling the same
for me - I can see
that I'm going to be the one
not just a night of fun
forgotten when daylight comes
and I slip your mind, and you slip away
I know you'll stay
it's there in your eyes.

I Can't Tell You

Written By: Stephen J Barlow

I can't tell you
You'd never understand the way I feel
I don't even know if what it is is real
Or the words to say
To make it go away

I can't show you
I have to hide this pain I have inside
I have to find a way to turn the tide
and smile again
you are my friend
but I can't tell you.

It's a secret that I'll take to my grave
There's no way to make this heart of mine behave
You're with someone else I know
but I can't make these feelings go
and I want to shout it out so you will know
but I can't tell you.

I can't help it
but everytime I look into your eyes
I have to turn and put on my disguise
so you won't see
what you mean to me
but I can't tell you.

It's a secret that I'll take to my grave
There's no way to make this heart of mine behave
You're with someone else I know
but I can't make these feelings go
and I want to shout it out so you will know
but I can't tell you.

I can't stay now
I have to go and learn to live again
I have to find a way to ease this pain
but I can't find the words
and I can't stop the hurt
and I can't tell you.
