Ron Mahonin - Lyrics

She's Found Wings (To Fly)

She tried to tell him; but he had other things on his mind

She tried to show him, and now he’s discoverin’ he was blind

And he’s finding it hard to find his way alone

He couldn’t hear her; he thought she had no voice

Now she’s only a whisper, ‘cause she’s made her choice

 

Chorus

She’s found wings to fly,

  Now she’s makin’ her own way

    She’s reaching for the sky

     When it got too rough

       She become strong enough, now

        She’s found wings to fly

 

Now she’s not a quitter, she gave it everything she had

Then it finally hit her; she was throwin’ good love after bad

And it made her sad to learn there was nothin’ in return

He wouldn’t listen, he couldn’t hear her plea

He kept on missin’ the fact that she had dignity, now …

 

She’s found wings to fly,

  Now she’s makin’ her own way

    She’s reaching for the sky

     When it got too rough

       She become strong enough, now

        She’s found wings to fly

 

No one can blame her; she’s got a life to live

She’s got so much inside her; she’s got so much love to give

 

She’s found wings to fly,

  Now she’s makin’ her own way

    She’s reaching for the sky

     When it got too rough

       She become strong enough, now

        She’s found wings to fly

 

She’s found wings to fly,

  Now she’s makin’ her own way

    She’s reaching for the sky

     When it got too rough

       She become strong enough, now

        She’s found wings to fly

Over Me So Soon

So you’ve found a new love, I hope you both do well

And I believe she might be good for you, and I’m happy,

                Can’t you tell

And I believe you’re better off with her

                And what you’re doin’

But I can’t believe you’re over me so soon

 

Has your memory drifter, or simply slipped away

Don’t you ever think of all the love I

                Gave to you each day

And don’t you honestly remember –

                How you’d fly me to the moon?

Oh I can’t believe you’re over me so soon

 

Chorus

Guess it wasn’t love

                ‘Cause love is the only thing that would keep me on your mind

Guess it wasn’t love

                ‘Cause love wouldn’t let you leave my memory behind

‘Cause if it was love

                You couldn’t just turn your back and leave our dreams in ruin

If it was love, you couldn’t be over me so soon

 

Have you truly forgotten, how we used to care

I can’t believe you can’t recall, the love we used to share

How we’d make love in the morning ‘til the next day’s afternoon?

Oh I can’t believe you’re over me so soon

 

Chorus

Guess it wasn’t love

                ‘Cause love is the only thing that would keep me on your mind

Guess it wasn’t love

                ‘Cause love wouldn’t let you leave my memory behind

‘Cause if it was love

                You couldn’t just turn your back and leave our dreams in ruin

If it was love, you couldn’t be over me so soon

 

Guess it wasn’t love, no it couldn’t have been love

Deeper In Love

I don’t know where it began…

And I don’t know the answers or understand

     It’s like you came in the night, and stole my heart away

You know it’s happened a few time before

But this time I’m feeling it so much more

     ‘Cause this time it’s real – this time it’s goin’ to stay

 

Now I don’t mind bein’ confused

It’s a feeling we eventually all get used to

     But I’d like to know, why you feel so good to me

You should know that I’ve been totally preoccupied

With the things you’ve made me feel deep inside

     Oh baby…it’s with you that I want to be

 

Chorus

I’m fallen’ deeper and deeper in love

And right from the start I knew it in my heart

     It’s you that I need – it’s you I can’t get enough of

You’ve been taken’ me higher and higher each day

And your love keeps lighten’ me in every way

     With every breath that I take,

     I fall deeper and deeper in love

 

Now I don’t mean to cry or complain

But there’s something I need some help in explaining –

     Like which way is up, or which way is down

     Or which way to go with this new love I’ve found

You pick me up when I’m feelin’ low

And I’m loving you more than you’ll ever know

     And with each passing day I pray, you’ll always stay around

 

Chorus

I’m fallen’ deeper and deeper in love

And right from the start I knew it in my heart

     It’s you that I need – it’s you I can’t get enough of

You’ve been taken’ me higher and higher each day

And your love keeps lighten’ me in every way

     With every breath that I take,

     I fall deeper and deeper in love

The Call

Forgive me for the call, I didn’t really want to

     Bother you at all

But here I am again, clinging to a memory of when

     We had it all, and I apologize of fallin’;

     But I really had no choice,

                I just had to hear your voice

 

I just called to say hello, to hear some words from you

     That tell me you’re alright

What’s that you say? Oh I’m fine too – except for missing you

     Each minute, every hour of every day and every night,

     And I apologize for fallin’, please forgive me for callin’

     But I really had no choice,

                I just had to hear your voice

 

Bridge

Since I can’t touch you, feel you, and hold you like before

Since I can’t be with you I’m missing you more

     Than words can ever say

                Oh darlin’ why’d we ever let love slip away?

 

I’m sorry for the call; I know you didn’t want to

     Hear from me at all

But I was feeling kind of low, and thinking ‘bout the love we

     Used to know and how we let it go

     And I apologize for fallin’, please forgive me for callin’

     I just had to hear your voice; Oh my darlin’,

     No I really had no choice;

                I just had to hear your voice

 

And I’m glad you took my call

Hand, Heart and Soul

Hand, in hand…

     That’s what I see when I think of you and me

     Now I don’t understand;

                Why you’re leavin’ me babe,

                When I thought we were walking this road…

                     Hand in hand

 

Heart…(heart)…to heart…(heart to heart) that’s how you

     Promised our spirits were eternally joined

     From the start; now you

                Tell me that suddenly

                You wish to tear it apart

                Heart to heart (heart to heart, hand in hand)

                     Ah babe, I don’t understand

 

You’re my destiny, you’re my ecstasy,

     We were always meant to be, don’t…you know?

     (Don’t you know…don’t you know)

I beg you, I plead, I’ll give you all the love you’ll ever need,

     Let’s just try once more

I’m down on my knees, oh please, baby please,

     Don’t go (don’t you go oh, don’t you go)

Stay with me, lay with me, pray with my baby, just

     Don’t (don’t) don’t walk out that door!

 

Soul…(soul)…to soul, (soul to soul)…living my

     Life without you has no meaning no reason no

     Goal… I’ve been forsaken, rejected,

     Can’t live if we can’t be connected…

                Soul to soul…

                                (Soul to soul, heart to heart, hand in hand)

                                Ah baby I don’t understand…

                                (Heart to heart, hand in hand, soul to soul)

                                Baby I just can’t let go…

                                (Hand in hand, soul to soul, heart to heart)

                                Baby you’re tearin’ me apart…

                                Hand in hand, heart to heart, soul to soul

Promises (Mean A Lot To You)

I remember when a handshake used to make a deal

I remember when a pledge was made

And you knew that it was real

Well things don’t seem to be at all

The way we once knew

But I can see it in your eyes

     Promises mean a lot to you

 

It used to be sincerely, you’d make an oath and say,

I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine

For always and a day

Now people just don’t seem to feel

The way they used to do

But I can see it in your eyes

     Promises mean a lot to you

 

Now maybe times are changin’, or maybe I’m naïve

But how can you make an oath to stay

And then pack your bags and leave…

When a promise is a promise, and a vow is still a vow?

Promises used to mean much more

Back then than they do now

 

Some say I’m old fashioned, to think the way I do

But I can see that you agree,

You feel the same way too

That when you make a promise,

You stay and see it through

And I can see it in your eyes,

That it would mean a lot to you

 

So if I make a promise, I’ll make it with respect

And if I made a vow to you

It’s one I won’t neglect

And if I say forever,

God knows it to be true

‘Cause I can see it in your eyes,

     Promises mean a lot to you

 

And if you looked into my eyes,

You’d see they mean a lot to me too

Roomful Of Love

There are things that we all can recall, when we were small

Pictures that linger like yesterday

I’ve got a memory that I’m thinkin’ of;

     I remember a roomful of love

 

With a wink of an eye and a nod of his head, Dad would

Give us the sign; it’s high time for bed and it’s

Upstairs, say prayers, and thank God above…

     I remember a roomful of love

 

Chorus

They’d roll back the rug with a squeeze and a hug

     Move the furniture off to one side

Then they’d waltz through the night holding each other tight

     Loving in three-quarter time

They’d twirl through the air with an ease that I swear

     They were lifted by wings of a dove

Enhanced in a trance of romance as they danced

     ‘Cross the floor in their roomful of love

 

They didn’t have much but they knew what they had and when

     Friday night came you could see Mom was glad with her

Favourite dress she was always proud of…

     I remember a roomful of love

 

As kids we would sneak down and wait for the show to

     Begin down below…but see they didn’t know that we’d

Sit at the top of the stairs up above

     While they danced in their roomful of love

 

Chorus

They’d roll back the rug with a squeeze and a hug

     Move the furniture off to one side

Then they’d waltz through the night holding each other tight

     Loving in three-quarter time

They’d twirl through the air with an ease that I swear

     They were lifted by wings of a dove

Enhanced in a trance of romance as they danced

     ‘Cross the floor in their roomful of love

 

Now I’m much older with kids of my own, got a wife and a family,

     And a custom we’ve grown to enjoy…

And my own girl and boy are fond of…

     When we dance in our roomful of love

 

Chorus

We’d roll back the rug with a squeeze and a hug

     Move the furniture off to one side

Then we’d waltz through the night holding each other tight

     Loving in three-quarter time

We’d twirl through the air with an ease that I swear

     We were lifted by wings of a dove

Enhanced in a trance of romance as we danced

     ‘Cross the floor in our roomful of love

You Came Into My Life

You came into my life…

You became a special part of me

     Now you’ve got the very heart of me

     And I wanted you to know

 

That you came into my world…

When I really wanted you;

     When I really needed you

     And I can’t let you go

 

You’re my light in the night of my darkest hour,

     You’re my rainbow after the rain

You’re as beautiful to me as a desert flower,

     You take away the pain

 

You walked into my room…

     When it was such an empty place,

Such a lonely place…

     Without you

 

You took me by surprise…

     It was such an unexpected thing,

Now my world with you means everything…

     And I wanted you to know
