Lyrics

Nothing Stays The Same

Written By: Xiomara Medina

Ah Oh Ah Oh ah oh ahhh
Ah Oh Ah Oh ah oh ahhh
You sure realized what it was all about
and soon thereafter couldn't live without (that sh**t)
And all the promises you never kept
away those days you can't go back again

Nothing stays the same,
Nothing stays the same,
But you are not to be blamed
soon everything will change

Ah oh ah oh ah oh ahh
ah oh ah oh ah oh ahh

You didn't predict that this could happen to you
You didn't expect that it would end this way
You never thought you'd be the one
to walk on fire leaving all behind

Nothing stays the same
Nothing stays the same,
But you are not to be blamed
soon everything will change

Now you can go back
Nothing stays the same

Nothing stays the same
Nothing stays the same,
But you are not to be blamed
soon everything will change

Back Home

Written By: Xiomara Medina

There's no better place than here with you today
No matter where I go you should always know
My love for you will grow and my readiness remains when you needed the most
I'll be with you

I will comfort you
when you need a friend
I will be right there
when there's no one else
to give a hand to show you the way
Back home

Loneliness can
bring you down
don't be afraid you can call me now
I'll cheer you up
I'll make you smile
when no one else will go the extra mile

Just count on me
I'll be with you
No matter what your going through
I'll be there to wipe those tears away, away

I will comfort you
when you need a friend
I will be right there
when there's no one else
to give a hand to show you the way
Back home

Un Poco de ti

Written By: Xiomara Medina

Quiero un poco de ti
Dame un poco de amor
Un poquito de ti
Sacia mi corazon
Necesito un poco de ti
Esta noche dame calor

Voy buscando y no te encuentro
donde esta ya no te siento en la oscuridad te espero un dia mas que ya no puedo

Quiero un poco de ti
Dame un poco de amor
Un poquito de ti
Sacia mi corazon
Necesito un poco de ti
Esta noche dame calor

Tantas ganas de ti tengo anelando un re-encuentro
ponme alas que a ti vuelo hasta el fin del mundo llego

No me digas que no
No me digas que no

Quiero un poco de ti
Dame un poco de amor
Un poquito de ti
Sacia mi corazon
Necesito un poco de ti
Esta noche dame calor

Too Drunk

Written By: Xiomara Medina

Today it's another day
I won't regret what I did yesterday
It's another beginning
I won't look back

The lips that pressed against mine
Those eyes that penetrated mine
Just keep flashing
Back in my mind

I would call you but I don't have your number
I would know your name but I was too drunk to remember

Beneath the blue velvet sky somewhere your gonna be tonight
I can run into you,
like I did last night
Perhaps this time I won't say good night
No I won't leave I'll stay with you whether is wrong or right
and we'll have a real good time
a real good time

Oh oh oh
I framed you in my mind
Oh oh oh
Oh boy I lost track of time

I would call you but I don't have your number
I would know your name but I was too drunk to remember

Oil and Vinegar

Written By: Xiomara Medina

A lifetime of distance has separated us and now we've found each other.

You and I keep rubbing heads
You like white wine, I like red
Yo te hablo en Espanol y tu me hablas Ingles

I'm dense like the ocean, your clear as day
The gentle breeze that kisses my hair
The ray that lights my way yeah

We are glued, joint,mixed, blend
bound, tight, linked mend.

Oil and Vinegar never meant to be together but now they can't come away
Salt and pepper seem better when they're together but then they can't separate

ohohoh They can't separate

I'm your moon, your my sun
Always together but never close
You've shared a part of my life and I want to thank you for
Your truth and devotion you've given me
Your heart and emotions is plain to see that I am gratefully for
your tender love
that always keeps me in motion.

In the middle of the desert I was stranded and you gave me water
You gave me water and the desert turned to gardens
to beautiful gardens.

We are glued, joint,mixed, blend
bound, tight, linked mend.

Oil and Vinegar never meant to be together but now they can't come away
Salt and pepper seem better when they're together but then they can't separate
