COME BACK TO ME
Lyrics by Alastair Lee
© Alastair Lee 2005

VERSE 1 I'm so lonely since you went away,
Promised me you'd always be mine - that you'd stay.
I need you more as the days pass by.
Looking out my window, I reminisce and I cry.
The times we had together seem long ago,
Now you're gone and the time goes so slow
Cause........


 

CHORUS Baby I'm living in the past,
And that‘s all I need to know.
I need you like the star needs the skies,
Come back to me baby, I need you so.
(Repeat at end)
Come back to me baby, I need you so.
Come back to me baby, I love you so. (at end)


 

VERSE 3 It won't be the same without you near,
Not waking up next to you - the regrets and the fear.
Please listen to me, you know I can't go on,
Love wasn't meant to be like this for us can't you see?
The times we had together seem long ago,
Now you're gone and the time goes so slow
Cause.......


 

VERSE 4 Girl you are always there in my thoughts and dreams,
Nothing ever is for certain in love it seems.
Maybe someday there'll be time for you and I,
Oh why can't things be different, why'd your love for me ever die?
Oh.......


 

DON'T TREAT ME LIKE A FOOL
Lyrics & music by Alastair Lee

VERSE 1 Why’d you have to walk down my street,
Flashing that devil’s smile?
Oh I was taken by those charms,
Just had to have you in my arms.


 

VERSE 2 Well baby if I’d only known,
What I know about you now.
How you’re like some raging tide,
And when you hit I’m swept aside.


 

CHORUS Cause you caught me in your spell,
Good or bad my heart can’t tell.
You can play me nice or cruel,
Just don’t treat me like a fool.
(at end)
Don’t ever treat me like a fool.
Don’t play me like a fool.


 

VERSE 3 Quit playing games and running me ‘round,
You kiss and tell then go to ground.
You treat me like a toy, making me sore
But I keep coming back for more.


 

VERSE 4 (Change up)
Oh baby I need you so,
Never gonna let you go.
Come soothe my aching heart,
Don’t ever say goodbye to me.


 

WHY’D YOU HAVE TO HAPPEN?

VERSE 1 The stars were out that night,
Like diamonds they shone their light.
Your eyes sparkled and your lips gleamed red,
With gentle moonbeams caressing your head.


 

VERSE 2 From then I couldn’t think so straight,
Just wasn’t ready for my fate.
You’ve entrapped my heart can’t you see,
Why’d you have to happen to me?


 

CHORUS Why’d you have to happen my baby doll?
Why’d you have to enchant me?
(Now you’ve got me under lock and key) (at end)
Oh of all those things that could be,
Why’d you have to happen to me? (repeat twice at end)


 

BRIDGE All you did was kiss me,
and held me oh so tight.
Now look at me, just a lovestruck guy,
Caught by your magical charms.


 

VERSE 3 Now the moral of my tale,
To be a hopeless lovestruck guy -
Give your heart so obligingly,
Then you’ll know what happened to me.


 

DREAMING OF YOU
Lyrics & music by Alastair Lee

VERSE 1 Your voice calls me in my dreams,
So soft and gentle - its true.
I imagine your smile again,
And that angel face.
Could it be real? Could it be true?
Now I’m left dreamin’ of you.


 

VERSE 2 To love you was my fortune,
To hold you was so devine.
One more kiss is my desire,
To feel your touch once more.
Could it be real? Could it be true?
Now I’m left dreamin’ of you.


 

CHANGE UP My love is deathless,
Only heaven knows.
Why did you go my darlin’?
Leaving me all alone.


 

VERSE 3 Could I ever forget you?
And could my memory regress?
Can I leave you far behind me?
No - my heart won’t try.
Because you’re there, I know its true,
Everytime I dream of you. (repeat at end from ‘Because....)
Everytime I dream of you.


 

BLACK DREAMS
Lyrics & music by Alastair Lee

VERSE 1 Don’t you think I won’t love you girl,
Don’t you dare forget about me
Baby please hold me tight,
I need you both day and night.


 

VERSE 2 Where are you going? I need you now,
Help me to be what I’ve dreamed about.
You’re so cruel, gotta a heart of ice,
Baby please why don’t you treat me nice.


 

CHORUS Cause black dreams are all I have,
Gotta a broken heart that lies on the floor.
Fire rages in your big blue eyes
Help me baby to colourize my dreams. (repeat at end)


 

VERSE 3 I’ve got a wall built around me,
With one touch you could set me free.
Don’t lead me up a path of love,
Then push me down a hill of misery.


 

VERSE 4 (Change up)
Please finally see the light,
With you I could flee the night.
And chains that bind my black old heart,
Will be trashed and torn - they’ll be blown apart.
Cause ......
