Written By: Tara Lea

(Verse- Tara Lea)

Here I am all alone just thinking of you
Here I am just wondering 'bout where you've gone to,
all those times, the tears i've cried,
waiting on you,
but do you,
even,
think,
of me,

(harmonized chorus)

Here I am
Where are you
Here I stand
So where've you gone to
Here I am
Where are you
Here I stand
So where've you gone to

(Verse- Curtis Peoples)

Do you ever think about
Where I am
Do you ever wonder about
How far Ive been
All those times
The tears Ive cried waiting on you
But do you
Even think of me

(harmonized chorus)

Here I am
Where are you
Here I stand
So where've you gone to
Here I am
Where are you
Here I stand
So where've you gone to

(Bridge-Tara Lea)

Youre my perfect rhyme
I think about you all the time
But when I look around
Your nowhere near me to be found

(Bridge-Curtis Peoples)

Im drawn to you
Like a poet to her perfect rhyme
But she doesnt know, when to use the line
So she waits
And I wait

(together)
And we wait
We wait
We wait
We wait
And we wait

Here I am
Where are you
Here I stand
So where've you gone to
Here I am
Where are you
Here I stand
So where've you gone to

Step Back

Written By: Tara Lea

(Verse)

Dont you ever notice there are days we wish would never end,
Dont you ever think about the days we'll look back on them,
Think about all the fun youve had,
And think about how,
Its all in the past,

(Chorus)

Sometime we wish that,
Everything would last,
And sometimes we wish that,
Time would never pass,
Sometimes we wish that,
We could step back,
And relive the moments of our lives
yeah

(Verse 2)
Have you ever made a bad
first impression
What if you would retake that audition
Think about all the mistakes youve
made
What would you do to get them erased
(Chorus)
Sometime we wish that,
Everything would last
And sometimes we wish that,
Time would never pass
Sometimes we wish that,
We could step back
And relive the moments of our lives
yeah

(Bridge)
Take,
A step,
Back and look around and,
Open your eyes
Take,
A step,
Back and look around and,
Realize

(Break-down Chorus)
Sometime we wish that,
Everything would last
And sometimes we wish that,
Time would never pass
Sometimes we wish that,
We could step back
And relive

(Chorus)
Sometime we wish that,
Everything would last
And sometimes we wish that,
Time would never pass
Sometimes we wish that,
We could step back
And relive
We can step back and relive
We can step back and relive
We can step back and relive
the moments of our lives
The moments of out lives yeah
