Lyrics

Aqua Eyes

Written By: Tami Rene

I get lost, in a deep sea of blue, whenever I am close to you ∙ I get found, inside a world of peace, whenever you are next to me ∙ And I love swimming in your aqua eyes, sinking softly in a blue lagoon ∙ I love sailing on your deep blue seas, flying into the far horizon ∙ Climbing into the love you give me, running headlong through the world with you. I get dizzy, in a hurricane of love, when you look at me that way ∙ I get crazy, and a little bit wild, when we fight I am just like a child ∙ But I love swimming in your aqua eyes, sinking softly in a blue lagoon ∙ I love sailing on your deep blue seas, flying into the far horizon ∙ Climbing into the love you give me, running headlong through the world with you. Where did you come from, out of the blue, you’re here beside me, helping me through ∙ You let me be me, and I love that you’re you, and I’m mesmerized by those Aqua Eyes ∙ And I love swimming in your aqua eyes, sinking softly in a blue lagoon ∙ And I love sailing on your deep blue seas, flying into the far horizon ∙ And I love swimming in your aqua eyes, sinking softly in a blue lagoon ∙ And I love sailing on your deep blue seas, flying into the far horizon ∙ Climbing into the love you give me, running headlong through the world with you ∙ I’m running headlong through the world, with you.

Taboo

Written By: Tami Rene

Hey, hey, you remember? Remember the part where he wins your heart, it was one fine summer night ∙ How you loved, how you loved the very thought of him, how he made your soul ignite ∙ And he said, said he wasn’t really looking, didn’t want to be pursued ∙ So you could not, could not admit to the love you felt, every time he looked at you ∙ But you knew, yeah you knew , though to say it was taboo ∙ And you knew, yeah, you knew, though to claim it, was too soon ∙ Yeah, yeah, you remember? Remember the walk along the river side, with the water rushing by ∙ How the scent, the scent of him on the evening breeze, made your thoughts seem justified ∙ How he said, said maybe he was looking after all, if that someone, was anything like you ∙ And he wondered, wondered as he reached down for your kiss, if he’d been slipped some witch’s brew ∙ And you knew, yeah you knew, though to say it was taboo ∙ And you knew, yeah, you knew, though to claim it, was too soon ∙ And you knew, yeah you knew, though to say it was taboo ∙ And you knew, yeah, you knew, though to claim it, was too soon ∙ You remember? ∙ Hey, hey, you remember? ∙ Yeah, yeah, you remember? ∙ Hey! Hey!

Fountain

Written By: Tami Rene

I’m looking high and low can you tell me where to find it? I’m digging deep and wide, do you know? Crystal clear water, crystal clear vision ∙ I’m looking for the fountain, the fountain of love, the fountain of youth, the give from above ∙ I’m seeking the fountain, the fountain of youth. The fountain of love and of truth ∙ Where do I find it? Should be simple ∙ Secret of the ages, where would it be hid? Why don’t we know? Didn’t they want us to find it? ∙ Secret of the sages, the wisest of them all, it’s only obvious, it must be hidden in plain site ∙ Maybe nature’s got it right, maybe simplest is best, maybe those in the wild daily put it to the test ∙ And maybe we’ve come full circle with our technology, and we will finally see, the perfect beauty, nature’s philosophy ∙ I’m looking high and low, can you tell me where to find it? I’m digging deep and wide, do you know? Crystal clear water, crystal clear vision ∙ I’m seeking the fountain, the fountain of youth. The fountain of love and of truth ∙ Where do I find it? Should be so simple. Where do I find it? Should be so simple.

Witch Doctor

Written By: Tami Rene

Not the rich doctor, she’s the witch doctor, coming round in your dreams ∙ Not the sad doctor, she’s the glad doctor, filling your head with schemes ∙ And she’s beautiful and shy, she’s mysterious and sly ∙ And she’s wonderful and you’ll find, that she gets inside, she gets inside your mind ∙ Not the drug doctor, she’s the love doctor, bringing all good things ∙ Not the bad doctor, she’s the glad doctor, helping you find your dreams ∙ And she’s beautiful and shy, she’s mysterious and sly ∙ And she’s wonderful and you’ll find, that she gets inside, she gets inside your mind ∙ Not the rich doctor, she’s the witch doctor, coming round in your dreams ∙ Not the evil woman, she’s the healing woman, helping to mend your wings ∙ And she’s beautiful and shy, she’s mysterious and sly ∙ And she’s wonderful and you’ll find, that she gets inside, she gets inside ∙ And she’s beautiful and shy, she’s mysterious and sly ∙ And she’s wonderful and you’ll find, that she gets inside, she gets inside your mind ∙ She’s the witch doctor ∙ She’s the witch doctor ∙ Coming round in your dreams ∙ She’s the witch doctor, coming round, she’s coming round in your dreams.

New Moon Night

Written By: Tami Rene

It’s a new moon night, we’ll make our own light, you’ve gotta hold me tight, hold me tight tonight ∙ Please don’t let me go, or we’ll never know, just how far the two of us can go ∙ Out in the dark, out under the stars, we’re gonna make our own way, we will plan our escape ∙ So peaceful, so right, and it’s so quiet tonight ∙ I wish that you and I could always be together, I wish this new moon night would last forever ∙ Why on earth do you make me wait, to spend my life, spend my life with you? ∙ What more can I do, what more can I say? No one loves you more and nothing stands in our way ∙ And I have finally found, all that I ever wanted ∙ So peaceful, so right, and it’s so quiet tonight ∙ I wish that you and I could always be together, I wish this new moon night would last forever ∙ We’ve yet to bridge this final gap, but we must or my heart will tear right in half ∙ Some say it’s not right to love you like I do, but if you’re ever in love you know it’s not what you choose, not what you choose ∙ I wish that you and I could always be together, I wish this new moon night would last forever ∙ I wish that you and I could always be together, I wish this new moon night would last forever ∙ Please don’t let me go, on this new moon night ∙ On this new moon night.

Right On Track

Written By: Tami Rene

It’s going right, it’s working out, I’m right on track, I’m on the move ∙ The course is set, my bags are packed, my plans are made, no going back ∙ Right on track, my bags are packed, no turning back ∙ Right on track, catch your dreams, and come with me ∙ It’s what I want, it’s what I see, it’s what I am and what I need ∙ The dream is here, my thoughts are strong, the point is fixed, I’m moving on ∙ Right on track, my bags are packed no turning back ∙ Right on track, catch your dreams, and come with me ∙ Movin’ on, I’m going to get where I’m going to ∙ Moving strong, I’ve got what it takes ∙ Now honey, I’m feeling good, I’m feeling great, check out this smile on my face ∙ Oh yeah, I think about it all the time, and watching it happen’s worth every dime ∙ Right on track, my bags are packed, no turning back ∙ Right on track, catch your dreams, and come with me ∙ Right on track, my bags are packed, no turning back ∙ Right on track, catch your dreams, and come with me ∙ Go pack your dreams, you come with me.

What If?

Written By: Tami Rene

Every time the clock strikes 9/11 I remember that day ∙ The sadness and pain of people hurting others that way ∙ And I wonder what would cause someone to hate another so, when deep down inside I’m sure we all want peace and love to grow ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain? ∙ But the enemy is evil and they must be done away, by any means and at any cost, evil cannot be allowed to stay ∙ So we fight it and we wound it and we strike right at the cause, but too late we realize that evil is as evil does ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain? ∙ Love, love, what makes it so hard to find? Love, the most precious gift ∙ Love, love, is it so hard to be kind? Love gives the power to live ∙ Does the enemy see us in the same way that we see them? Are they also giving their all to see the good side win? ∙ Yeah, we’ve tried fighting back and we have tried to overcome, what more could be lost if we tried to give our love? ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain? ∙ What if? What if?

Ghost Town

Written By: Tami Rene

Bars on the windows, locks on the doors, no one comes around here anymore ∙ The old memories are just fading away, colors are turning to gray ∙ And it’s just a ghost town, an empty old space, living in a ghost town, all alone in this place ∙ Dusty roads lead to nowhere, ancient footprints in the sand ∙ Silent testimony to this long forgotten land ∙ Weeds in the fields, crosses on the graves, is there anything left here to save? ∙ Empty rooms in the houses, they all have moved on and I have been left here alone ∙ And it’s just a ghost town, an empty old space, living in a ghost town, all alone in this place ∙ Dusty roads lead to nowhere, ancient footprints in the sand ∙ Silent testimony to this long forgotten land ∙ Singing to myself, singing to the trees, singing all the stories, singing in the breeze ∙ Ladadadada, ladadadada, oooooooh, ooooooh ∙ I’m a ghost in a ghost town, I’m tied to this space, living in a ghost town, all alone in this place, just a ghost town, I’m tied to this space, living in a ghost town, all alone in this place.

Spring Fever

Written By: Tami Rene

I ‘m feeling it in the air hoping to soon be there, starting to feel the breeze speak to me ∙ And it’s everywhere I go now, speeding up and slowing down, seeping into my skin again ∙ Spring fever again, just when I needed a friend, I thought winter just would not end, now it’s spring fever again ∙ Old trading for the new, bidding the past adieu, new coming on the scene with the spring ∙ Changing my view of the world now, magnificent flag unfurling, fearless winds they blow, new seeds to sow ∙ Dark changing to light, day comes out of night, I’m seeing the beautiful sight and I’m feeling alright ∙ And it’s everywhere I go now, speeding up and slowing down, seeping into my skin again ∙ Changing my view of the world now, magnificent flag unfurling, fearless winds they blow, new seeds to sow ∙ Spring fever again, just when I needed a friend, I thought winter just would not end, now it’s spring fever again ∙ Spring fever again, just when I needed a friend, I thought winter just would not end, now it’s spring fever again ∙ Spring fever again ∙ Spring fever again ∙ Spring again

Lovin' This

Written By: Tami Rene

Under the cover of dusk after the sun has retired, under the light of the moon as you look into my eyes ∙ Falling for you is so easy under the midnight sun, like a meteor shower in the summer, I go to pieces when we are one ∙ And you’re so careful with my love, and you’re so tender with your touch, and you’re so wild with your kiss, I’m lovin’ this ∙ Under the blanket of dark, wrapped in the arms of your love, under the light of the stars as you hold my heart next to yours ∙ Calling for you is so simple, the sigh that escapes with my breath, like a whisper that fills the atmosphere, my secrets are laid to rest ∙ And you’re so careful with my love, and you’re so tender with your touch, and you’re so wild with your kiss, I’m lovin’ this is how I always dreamed it would be, with someone who finds the light in me ∙ Under the dusk and under the light, under the sun and under the night ∙ The sun has retired as you look in my eyes, the darkness has fallen and so have I, falling for you is so easy under the cover of dusk ∙ And you’re so careful with my love, and you’re so tender with your touch, and you’re so wild with your kiss, I’m lovin’ this ∙ And you’re so careful with my love, and you’re so tender with your touch, and you’re so wild with your kiss, I’m lovin’ this
