Lyrics

Miss Your Company

Written By: Violette

Here we are, worlds apart
Distance lies, between our lives.
I try to hide this ache of mine,
Play it strong, silent song

I only see you in my dreams,
We meet in memories
I miss your company, miss your company
I hold on to the night,
Love you in my mind,
I miss your company, miss your company

Looking back, our precious past
Tearful smile, to my eyes
So fortunate for all you left,
Sweet heritage of love and faith.

Rocking With Angels

Written By: Violette & Rich Mendelson

Say you don’t want me - that’s alright
Say I don’t light your fire anymore - that’s alright
Please don’t tell me how to live my life

Say you don’t believe me - that’s alright
Tell me I’m a liar to my face and that’s alright
Roller coaster love spins upside down
I’ll be standing as you hit the ground

‘Cause I’ve been rockin’ with angels
I see them dancing my way
Yeah I’ve been rockin’ with angels
They tell me everything’s ok
I’m rocking with, rockin’ with angels

If you wanna change me - I don’t mind
But take a good look at yourself -  and change your mind
Please don’t tell me if I’m wrong or right
If you wanna preach me - that’s alright
But I dont wanna hear your sermons anymore
Cause its my life
Please don’t put me down to lift you higher
Can’t you see I’ve got my wings on fire?

Chorus

Bridge
Love and fear are two sides of the same coin
Heads or tails spin it to win its your choice
Foolish boy don’t you know
Gotta lose your ego to find I love you so

Superwoman

Written By: Violette & Rich Mendelson

Here comes the sun, Good morning Hun'
Roll out of Bed, I've gotta run
Get dressed, wash my face
I'm a superwoman you know

So many things, I gotta prove
No time to waste, I gotta move
Grab my coat, step out the door
I'm a superwoman you know

And when the night falls, I lay down my arms
And when the moon calls, surrender to your charms

Free as a bird, I lead my way
Spread my cape and ?y away
Read my vest, capital “S”
‘Cause I'm a superwoman you know

And when I see danger ahead
I keep my cool, I'm not afraid
Read my lips, I'm stronger than this
I'm a superwoman you know

(Chorus)

Just when I thought that kryptonite had brought me down
Just when I thought that I hit the ground no no no
I bounce back on my feet - it's alright

A day in a life, I do it again
One thing I know, I’ve gotta win
This ?ght, I ain't gonna lose
I'm a superwoman you know

No uniform when I get home
You keep me safe, You keep me warm
No mask no disguise,
Just your superwoman you know
