Emotionally drainedDid I give you a reason not to love meDid I changeOr did the love go stale was it hellBecause it stayed the sameI used to think I didn’t deserve youI didn’t have a clueThat another man would have stayed foreverIf I only knewThat you was out doing your dirtWhile I was home alone hurtI was a fool, fool, foolNow I’m drainedDancing in the shadowsOf heartbreakOld familiar feelings of painCan’t cry no moreTears won’t fallYou won’t callNow I’m through with it allI’m drained, drained, drainedEmotionally drained
He dealt with my attitudeAnd even all the arguingI ain’t cooked or cleaned all dayDidn’t even get dressed‘Cause all I want to do is complainAnd worry about where he’s beenI’m confrontationalSo he walks out the doorSaid this time it’s for sureHe’s not coming back no moreI guess he’s fed upHe’s so fed upI pushed my manTo the arms of another womanShe called last nightTo tell me how good it’s beenSo now I sit back feeling dumbCrying, wondering will he comeBack home to me, I love him soGuess I should have realizedA long time agoBefore he got fed up
Three Days, Three Hours
Three days, three hours since you went awayYou told me the other dayThat you need some timeTo yourselfSo you can clear your mindYou’re leaving meWhat did I doYou swore up and downYou’d come back aroundThree days, three hours since you went awayI went about my dayUntil my cell phone rangI knew it was youYou wanna knowCan you come throughMake no mistakeI’m missing youBut I don’t know whenYou gonna leave againThree days, three hours since you went awayAnd I didn’t hear from youUntil todayWhat type of relationshipAre we dealing withWhen your answer to our problemsIs to walk away from themThree days, three hours
I can see it in your eyes when you look at meYou can’t disguise the way you’re feelingSeems like you need some time to concentrate on youAnd I try to give you the best of meBut it’s a waste of time and energyGiving you some space is the best thing for me to doMaybe we need some time apartBaby, so you can free your heartDo all the things you can’t when you’re with meSpend time by yourself, your friends, and familyDon’t worry about me, I’ll be fineAnd hopefully, in timeWe’ll try again……I’ll never go farWe just need some time apart
What happened to the feeling I used to getWhat happened to the days I wouldn’t let a minutePass me byWithout thoughts of you heavily on my mindWhat happened to the times I would text youJust to say I love you soWhat happened to the little things that meant the mostNow I look at you and it feels like a void was sentTo wipe my heart clearI’d rather be apart from you than be nearThoughts of us together make me unhappyThere’s no more laughterSo tell me what happenedWe shouldn’t go onThere’s no reasonWe don’t want the same thingsThere’s no pleasingYou living your life, I’m living mineAnd our love was abandonedWhat went wrong, please tell me what happenedWhat happened to the feelings?What happened to the days you were heavily on my mind?What happened to the times?I don’t text you no moreI love you soWhat happened?
In the bed, I say my graceCan’t wait to see your faceIn my dreamsSo I sleepSleep, sleep, it’s calling meAnd I can’t even wait until the morning comesI’m so anxious to see the sunAnd your beautiful faceDuring the dayAnd tonight, when the sun setsI can look at you yet, againAnd if I never see another dayYou’re in my dreams anywaySo now I sleepSleep, sleep, sleep calling meYou’re patiently waitingIn my dreamsDay or nightYou’re on my mind
I’m traveling, traveling down this lonely roadCan’t imagine all the things I left behindStories untold, the times that you would lift me highBut now it’s time to goI’d rather walk away, than grow oldWith the wrong personSo let my destiny unfoldAnd when she pulls you closeI pray the memories of meWon’t cross your mindAnd in time, we’ll seeAnd maybe you’ll believeWhat I knew, was trueThere’s no place for me and youSo I will travel, I’m traveling down this lonely roadAloneNo bags or nothing I ownI left it all so long ago
Take Away the Pain (Rainforest Cafe)
Bring back the rain and how the sunshineTakes away the painYou know what they sayTwo people can meet like you and IAnd end up in a cafeI want to hear the thunder againShare an umbrella with a new friendWalk hand in handAs we explore a new landShare a mealAt an enchanted resortI tell you my secretsAnd you tell me yoursThis is what we’ll doThe next time I see youSo don’t forget the sunshineAnd the rain that drenched you and IIt took away the pain
Like a marching bandStealing my attentionI stand to attentionDid I fail to mentionThrough trials I standRising above all of our troublesAnd we’ll make it a good dayExclaim it.Proclaim it.Whatever you name it.It’s a good dayI’ll say it.And pray for it.Put your name on it.And make it a good day
See the sunSee the rainThe wind blowin’ my hairGray clouds, an overcastHow long will this lastSeasons changeNo more rainReplaced with driftsOf the whitest snowI think you should knowI can’t stand the coldDid I miss, miss the fallMy favorite season of allLeaves so colorfulSo damn memorableJanuary, brings a newOr the hottest day in JuneSeasons changeIn all kinds of waysThe weather is a metaphorFor what life has in store
There’s a blank page where my words used to beThere’s no you, there’s no meThere’s nothing to write aboutNothing to sing aboutNothing to cry and shoutMy mind has formed a blankMy canvass has no paintMy story is boringThere’s no meaningI don’t have a clueThere’s no me, there’s no youThey call it writer’s block when you don’t say a lotWhat happened to my pen, my paper, my pencil, my eraserMy laptop, my tabletInspiration, I don’t have itJust a blank page staring at me from an empty spaceThere’s no you, there’s no me
It’s Gonna Be Alright
Sitting at the tableEarly one morningWilling and ableI know my day is comingAnd when it comes, when I see the lightI will join the chorus singingIt’s gonna be alrightSlow down, hang in thereLove is still trueAnd in the midst of the stormI will know, I can count on youNo more begging, no askingI have nothing left to proveIn the midst of the stormYou’ll performAnd I can count on youI will join the chorusAfter I see the lightWith my arms outstretchedMy palms in the airSinging, it’s gonna be alright(Reprise)
