    I was feeling kind of frisky waiting for you to come home thinking about what I"ll do to make you never want to roam surfing thru the channels just to waste some time but the breaking news about you and her blew my mind and I just have to know Was the grass greener on the other side was it trimmed in gold worth all those lies was it that good, was it that hot You Had To Get A Little to lose a lot what did she do that I havn't done what a fool to think I was the only one was it that good,was it that hot You Had To Get A Little to lose a lot It was only yesterday you made me come alive when you took me in your arms said baby I'll always be your guy you were really just an undercover lover leaving a string of broken hearts but you've been discovered and I just have to know (Chorus) It's hard to believe our love was a lie you weren't the guy you pretended to be but time heals all wounds and I'll get over you (repeat chorus to fade) Copyright/Goines/Meyer Demo Produced At Nashville's Gary Earl Productions

    LEARNING TO BREATHE WITHOUT YOU Shirley Goines, Rachel Kerr V1 Dragged the covers back over my head Hit the snooze button hard Waking up to an empty house Just tears me apart I can never finish the coffee Got bread that's growing mold And it's all that I can do Sometimes to stay in control Pre-chorus 1 My life is upside down Still baby I have found that Chorus: I'M LEARNING TO BREATHE WITHOUT YOU Trying to find my way I'M LEARNING TO BREATHE WITHOUT YOU Taking it day by day Till I finally do Get over you V2 Driving out to work today The radio played our song I felt a sense of victory When I sang along It's a little moment like this That lets me know I can Get back to being me And loving who I am Chorus: Bridge: Since you've been gone I fell down but got up stronger Oh I believe this is something I will conquer Final Chorus: I'M LEARNING TO BREATHE WITHOUT YOU Trying to find my way I'M LEARNING TO BREATHE WITHOUT YOU Taking it day by day Till I finally do, get over you Till I finally prove I'm over you (c)2015 Goines/Kerr.
