Lyrics

Right One, Wrong Time

Written By: Victoria B. Fuller

One step forward and two steps back
I was really making progress, then I took the wrong path

You were the right one, but it was the wrong time
For love to be
love to be

You were the right one, but it was the wrong time
For love to be,
Love to be, love to be, love to be

I thought I had reached my destiny
I had the ticket in my pocket, but then I lost the key

Chorus

You were the right one, but it was the wrong time
For love to be
love to be

You were the right one, but it was the wrong time
For love to be,
Love to be, love to be, love to be

When searching for true passion
What we want doesn’t always happen
But there’s a possibility
Of finding the key to be happy, truly happy

I was climbing up the mountain, nearly at the top
But then I lost momentum and the vehicle stopped

You were the right one, but it was the wrong time
For love to be
love to be

You were the right one, but it was the wrong time
For love to be,
Love to be, love to be, love to be

Am I Crazy to Be in Love

Written By: Vicoria B. Fuller

If truth be told, I can be cold
I can withhold, the love that is inside me

So I keep it inside, and there it can hide but it’s still alive
I feel it stir within me

(Chorus)
Cause you’ve opened the door to my heart
The curtain will rise, what’s my part?
So I’ll go for the ride, when will it start?

Am I crazy to be in love?

Am I crazy to be
Am I crazy to be, Am I crazy to be in love
Am I crazy to be
Am I crazy to be, Am I crazy to be in love

(Bridge)
My thoughts collide like wind blown flurries
Why don’t we wait, what is the hurry the hurry?
It’ll be just fine, so don’t you worry

Am I crazy to be in love?

My heart’s been hurt, been dragged in the dirt
Some people are cruel, it’s part of human nature

Some can be kind, and some speak their mind
Some live in hope, and others live in heartache

(Chorus)
But you’ve opened the door to my heart
The curtain will rise, what’s my part?
So I’ll go for the ride, when will it start?

Am I crazy to be in love?

Am I crazyto be
Am I crazy to be, Am I crazy to be in love
Am I crazy to be
Am I crazy to be, Am I crazy to be in love

(Bridge)
My thoughts collide like wind blown flurries
Why don’t we wait, so what’s the hurry
It’ll be just fine so don’t you worry

Am I crazy to be in love?

Am I crazy to be
Am I crazy to be, Am I crazy to be in love
Am I crazy to be
Am I crazy to be, Am I crazy to be in love

Am I crazy to be in lov–o-ove
Am I crazy to be in lov–o-ove
Am I crazy to be in lov–o-ove
Am I crazy to be in love
Am I crazy to be in love
Am I crazy to be in love
Am I crazy to be in love

Your Heart

Written By: Vicoria B. Fuller

(verse 1)
There’ve been times when I felt so disappointed
That words of comfort were hard to hear
There’ve been times when I felt so very fearful
That all seemed lost with no answers near

(Chorus)
When I fell the pain coming down like rain
The answers seem so far away
Then I see you there with open arms
Your heart shows me a better way

(verse 2)
Do you understand What it feels like
To lose your self respect because you’ve hurt a friend
Do you understand what it’s like to feel lonely
It’s a pain so deep it feels like it will never end

(Chorus)
When I feel the pain coming down like rain
I remember all the things you had to say
You said listen now and trust yourself
Your heart shows you a better way

(bridge)
Don’t worry dear you say
The answer’s there you say
Life’s loving arms enfold around you
And these loving arms are there for me and you
And these loving arms will lead to something new
And these loving arms will never leave
And these loving arms are there if you receive

(verse 3)
Have you ever wished for a love so enduring
That every moment’s a precious gift beyond what you have dreamed
Have you ever longed to love so deeply
that all error and misjudgments have been redeemed

(Chorus)
When I feel the pain coming down like rain
I remember all the things you had to say
You said listen now and trust yourself
Your heart shows you a better way
Oh… Just listen now and trust yourself
Your heart shows you a better way

Why Can't We Agree

Written By: Victoria Fuller

I think I’m right, you think your right, and we’re both certain
To a certain degree

You think I wrong, I think your wrong and we stand strong
In our conviction

Why can’t we agree, ohhhhh, to a certain degree, ohhhh
Why can’t we agree, ohhhh, is this the way it has to be-e

We keep on talking and we keep on walking in circles
Never getting anywhere
Our voices escalate until our faces turn purple
And we’re not playing fair

Why can’t we agree, ohhhhh, to a certain degree, ohhhh
Why can’t we agree, ohhhh, is this the way it has to be-e

Please don’t go-o, till we find a solution
Please won’t you sta-ay, till we reach a resolution

Cause there’s a place between us a space between us
An empty place that keeps us apart

You want me to see things just the way that you see them
But I don’t see your point of view

I want you to see things just the way that I see things but I’m not
(I’m not) I’m not getting through

Why can’t we agree, ohhhhh, to a certain degree, ohhhh
Why can’t we agree, ohhhh, is this the way it has to be-e

Please don’t go-o, till we find a solution
Please won’t you sta-ay, till we reach a resolution

Cause there’s a place between us a space between us
An empty place that keeps us apart

I think I’m right, you think I’m right
Maybe we’re both right

I Saved Me

Written By: Victoria Fuller

We met on the Internet, ate dinner at a restaurant
You impressed me with you stories about your family history
We looked into each other’s eyes with deep enchanted longing
To see if we could find ourselves loved and adored there

Chorus:
And we jumped into the romance
We didn’t test the water and the current ran too swiftly
and I called for you to save me, save me, save me

We talked on the phone a lot revealing truths about our lives
We opened up our hearts an inch enough to squeeze the other in
If you jump into a river that rushes swiftly by you
You don’t know if it’ll lead you to rapids or sharp rocks

Chorus:
And we jumped into the romance
We didn’t test the water and the current ran too swiftly
and I called for you to save me, save me, save me

Bridge:
I had been searching for years
Each time brought me to tears
And I thought maybe you could be
The one to share your life with me
And save me, save me, save me, save me, save me

We started to disagree about our life philosophy
You said your's was the one true way
Black and white, no room for gray
And then I truly saw the light, it wasn’t who was wrong or right
It didn’t meet our fantasy of what we hoped that it would be

Chorus:
And we jumped into the romance
We didn’t test the water and the current ran too swiftly
and I called for you to save me, save me, save me

And Then I swam to shore
And I didn't need your help anymore
And then I saved me, I saved me, I saved me, I saved me, I saved me, I saved me, I saved me, I saved me, I saved me, I saved me

Small Moments

Written By: Vicoria Fuller

In the morning Lying in my bed
I wake and turn my sleepy head
And I see you lying next to me
And your chest is rising as you breath
And our arms and legs are intertwined
And your heart it beats in time with mine

And we’re sharing small moments
And we’re sharing small moments
And we’re sharing small moments
And we’re sharing small moments

You cook the eggs while the coffee drips
I burn the toast while we plan our trip
And you wash the dishes then I dry
Then we kiss each other and say goodbye

And we’re sharing small moments
And we’re sharing small moments
And they’re ordinary moments
Just everyday small moments

And we almost didn’t make it and we almost had to breakup
But we held on tight
We held on tight
We held on tight, did not lose sight of

Sharing small moments
And we’re sharing small moments
And they’re ordinary moments
There just, small moments

In the Evening you sit next to me
I stroke your Hair and you touch my knee
And our arms and legs are intertwined
And your heart it beats in time with mine

And we’re sharing small moments
And we’re sharing small moments
And they’re ordinary moments
Just everyday small moments

And we almost didn’t make it and we almost had to breakup
But we’re sharing small moments
And we’re sharing small moments
Night and day, day and night
It feels so right
Day and night
It feels so right
Day and night

Point of View

Written By: Victoria Fuller

When Michael said it had to end, but maybe we could still be friends
I took the car but it broke down, I shook my fists and cursed the ground
And when I face adversity, I try to get some clarity
What I’ve found is best to do, is choose a better point of view

And I‘ve tried and I’ve tried to find the reason why
But the thing I’ve found that’s best to do is choose a better point of view

Cause we all have bad days where the effort doesn’t pay
And we need something to lift us up
We want it to make sense, to get some recompense
And then everything will be all right

After working fourteen hour, I walked home in drenching showers
What I found when I can home they took it all but left my phone
I have a new philosophy
It brings me greater harmony
What I’ve found is best to do, is choose a better point of view

Cause we all have bad days where the effort doesn’t pay
And we need something to lift us up
We want it to make sense, to get some recompense
And then everything will be all right

Now Michael, he’s come back to me, and he proposed on bended knee
And I did cry big happy tears, cause I have loved him all these years
Life can be good it can be bad and many things can drive you mad
But what I’ve found is best to do, is choose a better point of view

Cause I‘ve tried and I’ve tried to find the reason why
But the thing I’ve found that’s best to do is choose a better point of view
Yes the thing I’ve found that’s best to do is choose a better point of view

The One For Me

Written By: Victoria Fuller


You are the one for me and I can clearly see

The one I have been waiting for forever

Since the time we met a night I won’t forget

An unusually night in November

When you walked into the room, I looked into your eyes

You nearly took my breath away

I was taken by your charms and then to my surprise

My heart was captured and I was swept away

Now we’re living in a dream that we have always dreamt

To know the deepest love that we have ever known

And we’re so glad that we have found each other

We’ve been on a journey and now we’ve found out way home

You are the one for me and I can clearly see

The one I have been waiting for forever

Since the time we met a night I won’t forget

An unusually night in November

We needed no introduction we knew instantly

It seemed like we’ve been friends for years

It was the way we talked and looked into each other’s eyes

When I heard your voice it melted all my fears

Now we’re living in a dream that we have always dreamt

To know the deepest love that we have ever known

And we’re so glad that we have found each other

We’ve been on a journey and now we’ve found out way home

We needed no introduction we knew instantly

It seemed like we’ve been friends for years

It was the way we talked and looked into each other’s eyes

When I heard your voice it melted all my fears

You Don't Know

Written By: Victoria Fuller

Friends come and go and you never know
When they’ll disappear and you’ll never see them again
It was you, by my side, at my lowest point
You were still my friend

You don’t know how much you mean to me
How can I find the words to tell you what you mean to me
My friend, my dear friend

I’ve done a lot of crazy things
Experienced much that life can bring
I’ve spent my money on baubles and toys
But it’s friends not things that bring me joy

You don’t know how much you mean to me
How can I find the words to tell you what you mean to me
My friend, my dear friend

The time we have together will end some day
Until that time’s upon us
There’s something I have to say

As Years go by, I heave a sigh
So grateful that you’ve been a friend to me
And now’s the time to tell you so
Before the end before we have to leave

You don’t know how much you mean to me
How can I find the words to tell you what you mean to me
My friend, my dear friend

You mean the world to me, you were there for me
And you cared for me, you are my true friend

I spent my money on baubles and toys
But its friends like you that bring me joy

I’ll be there for you and I’ll care for you can count on me
I’ll always be your friend, my dear friend, my sweet friend
My dear friend, my friend

Barcelona Nights

Written By: Victoria Fuller

I Took the Train from Barcelona to Madrid
To meet you at the Prado, and then we would be wed
I waited for you, I called you but you never arrived
I didn’t know the reason why
And tears filled my eyes

But I remember we were dancing the flamenco in Guell Park
A warm summer breeze was blowing and we were kissing in the Dark
And I remember we were laughing
In the silver moonlight of Barcelona nights, Barcelona nights, Barcelona

Star Light, star bright, first star I see tonight
I wish you still could hold me tight in these Barcelona nights,
Barcelona nights

The Ringing Telephone woke me up at dawn
A stranger told me how you lost this life now you’re forever gone
And now a cold wind blowing chills me to the bone
I feel so empty and so alone
But I remember we were dancing the flamenco in Guell Park
A warm summer breeze was blowing and we were kissing in the Dark

And I remember we were laughing
In the silver moonlight of Barcelona nights, Barcelona nights,
Barcelona

Star Light, Star Bright, first star I see tonight
I wish you still could hold me tight in these Barcelona nights,
Barcelona nights, Barcelona nights, Barcelona

Music and lyrics by Victoria Fuller

Friends come and go and you never know
When they’ll disappear and you’ll never see them again
It was you, by my side, at my lowest point
You were still my friend

You don’t know how much you mean to me
How can I find the words to tell you what you mean to me
My friend, my dear friend

I’ve done a lot of crazy things
Experienced much that life can bring
I’ve spent my money on baubles and toys
But it’s friends not things that bring me joy

You don’t know how much you mean to me
How can I find the words to tell you what you mean to me

The time we have together will end some day
Until that time’s upon us
There’s something I have to say

As Years go by, I heave a sigh
So grateful that you’ve been a friend to me
And now’s the time to tell you so
Before the end before we have to leave

You don’t know how much you mean to me

My friend, my dear friend

Voice overlays ending:
You mean the world to me, you were there for me
And you cared for me, you are my true friend

I spent my money on baubles and toys
But its friends like you that bring me joy

I’ll be there for you and I’ll care for you can count on me
I’ll always be your friend, my dear friend, my sweet friend
My dear friend, my friend
