  • 04:28 Story Lyrics Away Too Long

    When I was a young girl
    Dreamin’ on a Star
    Left me Angel city
    To heal my crooked heart 
    Seeking out some silver wings
    To take me far away from me
    Every detour led me to
    A truth too close to see

    I’ve been away too long
    Nothing is familiar
    I’ve been away too long
    All the old seems new
    Now that I’m home

    Spending too much precious time 
    Tryin’ to get the perfect high
    When all I ever wanted was
    A little piece of mind

    I’ve been away too long
    Nothing is familiar
    I’ve been away too long
    All the old seems new
    Now that I’m home

    Change of Heart
    Changed my Mind
    Changed my World
    From the inside of my Soul

    I’ve been away too long
    Nothing is familiar
    I’ve been away too long
    All the old seems new

    I’ve been away too long
    Nothing is familiar
    I’ve been away too long
    All the old seems new
    Now that I’m home

    Now that I’m home
    Now that I’m home
    Now that I’m home

  • 05:46 Story Lyrics Gotta Take This Call

    My cell is ringin’ I gotta take this phone call hello yes

    That was my baby she said she loves me after all well alright

    Listen I couldn’t recover from our last fight now

    It had me tossin’ turnin’ through the night now

    She stole my sleep when she stormed out that door now

    She said she wasn't comin’ back no more but

     

    My cell is ringin’ I gotta take this phone call hello yes

    That was my baby she said she loves me after all well alright

    Listen one night without her it was just too much ah

    I crave her lovin’ I can't get enough now

    Her loves so good it makes you wanna scream loud

    Just let her kiss ya ahhhhh!

     

    Ooh Baby

    Hear what you’re sayin’

    So good to hear your voice  

    Let’s keep on talkin’

    So sorry baby

    Like what you’re sayin’

    For what I said before

    Just keep on takin’

    Ooo listen baby

    I like what you’re sayin’

    Can’t live without you girl

    Let’s keep on talkin’

     

    We got a good thing don’t want to let this go

    Don’t let a good thing go away

    ‘Cause I need you

     

    My cell is ringin’ I gotta take this phone call hello yes

    That was my baby she said she loves me after all well alright

    Listen I couldn’t recover from our last fight now

    It had me tossin’ turnin’ through the night now

    She stole my sleep when she stormed out that door now

    She said she wasn't comin’ back no more but

    One night without her it was just too much ah

    I crave her lovin’ I can't get enough now

    Her loves so good it makes you wanna scream loud

    Just let her kiss ya, Ahhhhh!
