Track Name: It's a Ruse
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

What do you know, how do you do
I like the way you look at me with those eyes, confidently wise
Pleasure I’m sure, I’ve met you before
But baby not here, maybe it was some other time

This ain’t no kind of place for you
Better move a long, better get out while you can
There aint no time to waste in here
When you got so much, you forget what you had

Don’t follow me down, it’s a ruse
They will lie to your face while they watch you waste away
Don’t come around here no more lookin’ for me

Don’t you cry mamma’s hear to dry your eyes
So no more tears, now I’m gonna make you forget
It’s over my pet, those bad cat’s catch it cuts through
Ooh-ooh, to the deepest part of you

This ain’t no kind of life for you
Better move along if you cant trust the bartender
Where’s the smile you wore so tight, where’s your big bad fight?
Not everyone can be a contender

Don’t follow me down, it’s a ruse
They will lie to your face while they watch you waste away
Don’t come around here no more lookin’ for me

There’s plenty a things you could do
You don’t have sing the blues to break your heart
Cant you find a better handle?
Plenty a stars in the sky
You don’t have to be Orion to know yourself one great big dipper

Don’t follow me down, I tell you it’s a ruse!
They will lie to your face while they watch you lose your taste
Don’t come around here no more, lookin’ for me
No don’t you dare follow me down
Track Name: Who Am I
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

Who am I
Why I am I here alone
Two sympathetic eyes looking for a home
Another night I imagine trouble
Stir my fortune and pretend I’m someone good

Cross town to have another drink
Another cigarette, some other nother night I’ll quit
Who am I, not really interested,
Imagine trouble & pretend you’re someone good

I’m just waiting on a friend
Boredom only makes me do bad
I told you what would happen next
You will never see me again

I’m just waiting on a friend
Boredom always makes me do bad
I told you what would happen next
You will never see me again

Who am I, circling round outside
To see them laughing, laughing…
It gets me every time
Another round, won’t leave you when I should
But deep inside, everyone is good
Track Name: Love (Original Version)
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

Love, can I be love
Love, could I ever really be loved
And love, if you ever find me I wonder will you try me
I'm so different than before
Love I am so different than before

Love, the kind that I dream of
It starts right here inside of me love
And love, if you ever find me I wonder will you try me
I'm so different than before
Love I am so different than before

Love, where are you waiting
In dark and smoky rooms I hear you singing to me
Love, let my voice take you
And the song we make would be so different than before
Oh yes my love, if you ever find me
Then I ask you try me, I’m so different than before
Love I am so different than before

Love this time you won't mistake me
I'm ready now love for you to take me with you
Love, I know when you’ve found me you’ll wrap yourself all around me
So different than before
And yes my love,
I know you will show me with words you never told me
So different than before
Love I am so different than before
Track Name: I Remember
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

Bend me, you wont break me,
It don’t matter to me baby
Cause I’ll always love you anyway
Played all of our cards, collecting the rewards
For my love is here to stay

Cause now you can talk to me
You can see right through me
You made me the person that I am

I remember, just like it was yesterday
And I think it’s better to love and to live with the pain
Than to never let it in to your heart

Sittin’ here thinkin’, rememberin’ us drinkin’
And layin’ around all day
Yes I was crazy, but you were damn lazy
And I wouldn’t trade it for anything

Cause now I can talk to you
I know what you’ve been through
And you know I will always understand

I remember, just like it was yesterday
And I think it’s better to love and to live with the pain
Than to never let it in

I know your secrets, and I’m gonna keep them
Safe and warm deep inside
If you ever need me, you better come see me
Cause you can come runnin’ any time

I remember, just like it was yesterday
And I think it’s better, it’s better
to love and to live with the pains
Than to never let them in

Oh bend me, you wont break me
It don’t matter no more baby
Cause I’ll always love you anyway
Track Name: My Love
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

my love there is no sun, there is no sky with out you in my life
and I know you are the one, who’ll walk with me all through time

my love, my love all that I dream of is your smile when I’m asleep
and it’s just because your kiss is like a dream that I can keep

I would cross the ocean, ride through the plain
climb the highest mountaintop, If you call my name,
my love, I would, my love

my love wherever you are, I’m coming by car, by rail or by plane
counting down the hours, until your powers fill me again

my love, my love doesn’t matter what we do to pass the time
cause even just staring into your eyes is so sublime

that I would cross the ocean, ride through the plain
climb the highest mountaintop, if you call my name,
my love, I would, my love, for you my love
I would, my love

I wanna be yours night and day, hallelujah i pray
I wanna be yours in every way, I wanna be yours

I would cross the ocean, ride through the plain
climb the highest mountaintop, if you call my name,
my love, I would, my love, for you my love
I would, my love

my love there is no sun
there is no sky with out you in my life
Track Name: Those Eyes
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

Watched my misery, a broken hearted casualty
Turn to butterflies, when I looked into those eyes
Went from a pauper, cheap scotch and tap water
To sippin vintage wines, when I looked into those eyes

Sewed a bad seed, refined and treated me to high society
Took a barren girl, fertilized and bred her one happy family
So stimulated, impetuous, intoxicated, and mostly satisfied
Since I looked into those eyes

So unassuming, how could you know
What you were doing in my life
With one spin, my whole world would begin again,
in your eyes

No more a victim
No lack-lust or depression in this head of mine
Since I looked into, Oh and what a view
How I wish you could see it too
In those eyes
Track Name: Be Somebody Blues
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

You better stop your cryin, Cause honey I ain’t lying
Just when you stop lookin’ for it, Love comes round to find you
Why do you have to rush, Worried so much you start to moan
One minute you’re so lonely, the next ain’t got no time of your own

There’s nothing wrong with you, You got your own plans too
So get a job and work real hard, And be somebody who
Has to make appointments, And hasn’t time for thoughts
so sad and blue, ooh - ooh
Trust me, One minute you’re so lonely
The next you’ll need some time of your own

Now I think, Relationships, Are beautiful, And Important
But you wont find the right one, If you think the world’s so cruel
It’s true, You got to be, Somebody
To find the right, Somebody for you

Honey bee, listen to me, You’re sweet as sugar cant you see
Your time is precious, So don’t you let it waste away
There’s nothing wrong, with being strong
So stand up tall and flex that backbone
One minute you’re so lonely, and I swear,
The next next ain’t got no time of your own

Now I think, Relationships, Are beautiful, And terrific
But you wont find the right one, If you’re thinking you’re a fool
It’s true, You got to be somebody
To find that right somebody for you

It’s just like, scarlet said, Tomorrow is another day to start all over
And don’t you worry, cause worries just do wrong
And just when you start to like, being by yourself
you’ll find it’s gone, oh - oh
One minute you’re so lonely, the next ain’t got no time of your own
Track Name: Luckiest Girl
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

I’d resigned to walk alone
Blind to the world around me
Then one night you appeared from shadow
To light up the dark so I could see

When you hold my hand
I can hardly believe
That I am the luckiest girl in the world
Ever since you found me

Broken hearts are so hard to mend
When we hang on them Everyday
But you came and melted my cold heart so fast
That I nearly floated away

When you kiss me sweet
I can hardly believe
That I am the luckiest girl in the world
Ever since you found me

You are my lucky star
Make all wishes come true
My heart sings these little songs
About a fool who got wise with you

Now I walk around with my chin high
Bright eyes and a smile on my face
Looking forward to every day
That your love shines its light on me

When you hold me in your arms
I can hardly believe
That I am the luckiest girl in the world
Ever since you found me
Track Name: It's Easier On Me
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

You had your way with me
And I believed you were so cool
And maybe I’m a fool to think you’d come around
I waited too long
It’s easier on me, now that you’re gone

You call me back again and try to pull me in
You say hold on baby, let me prove I’m the real thing
You waited too long
It’s easier on me, now that you’re gone

I’ve cried, too many times to let you brake me
To let you take what’s left of my heart
So be kind and let me go, just let me go

You’ll find someone someday
Who’ll make you feel the way you wanted to
Or you’ll realize you loved me all along
Either way it’s easier on me, now that you’re gone

It’s easier on me, now that you’re gone
Track Name: Hand in Hand
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

You take my hand, with a promise and a ring
My life with you begins

I take your hand, and the tears fall down my face
As I take your name

And here we stand, together hand in hand, shining like the sun
And I new it from the start, you would have my heart
And I would be yours love

You carry me across the ocean on a breeze
With one look in your eyes

And I carry you, and would never let you fall
Just push you up higher

It’s a miracle that we met on a busy street in New York City,
With the world was rushing by
In these times so unkind, I’m thankful for you love,
And so thankful for your love

You take my hand, and I’ve never been more sure, of anything before

And here we stand, together hand in hand, shining like the sun
And I new it from the start, you would have my heart
And I would be all yours
Oh my love here we’ll stand, together hand in hand, bright like the sun
And I new it from the start, that you would have my heart
And I would be yours love
Track Name: First Time
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

Do you think it’s okay, if I stay a while
You could make me smile like this, such a long time
I’ve got a feeling about you
I’ve got a feeling I can’t lose

First time, first time I’ve looked into someone’s eyes and I knew
First time, the first time I know you feel the same way that I do

Now I feel like it’s okay, for me to be myself
And know that you wont judge me
I’ve got a feeling about you
I’ve got this feeling, I can’t lose

First time, first time I’ve looked into someone’s eyes and I knew
First time, the first time I know you feel the same way that I do

If this is love I wont throw it away
And if it’s real there’s a first time for everything
I’m not alone I found someone like you I can dream of

And when I need you just a phone call away
I can send you off and you’ll come back to me
I’ve got a feeling about you

First time, first time I’ve looked into someone’s eyes and I knew
Yes I knew
First time, the first time I know you feel the same way that I do
And I’m not alone, I found someone like you I can dream of
First time, first time I know you feel the same way that I do
Track Name: The Old Fashioned Way
© 2007 ROSEYMUSIC

My mother once told me about a girl
Who sang with a fire that burned round the world
She said I don’t know what you plan to do
But if you’re like that girl
Then god bless you!

Gonna get ya, one fine day
In the summer and we can play
All the old ones and some new ones too
It’s so wonderful just meeting you

Gonna find ya out of the blue
And sweep ya off a your heavy shoes
Make dance with me and sing some too
It’s so wonderful just seeing you

You bring such joy too me, Ooh let your joy renew me
Who cares what they say, we’re gonna have some fun
The old fashioned way

Lay your head upon me
Take a minute to cool me
We fit together so nicely
Will you be here next time we’re dancing

Oh, the way you spin me round me the floor
I can’t feel my good feet anymore
Feel like I could fly off into the blue
It so nice being close to you

You Bring such joy too me, Ooh let your joy renew me
Who cares what they say, we’re gonna have some fun
The old fashioned way

I wish I could fit ya in my suitcase
And take you on with me to the next place
Cause there’s always one more show to do
It’s been wonderful being here with you
