"Love Rules" (2010)




Let Me Introduce Myself lyrics - Carolyn Dawn Johnson

You might not remember me
But we've met before, kind of briefly
Back then I had longer hair
You came from out of nowhere

It might not have meant much to you
But to me, it meant everything
I know you meet a lot of people

So let me introduce myself to you again
It's probably obvious
I wanna be more than friends

I still believe in, you still believe in
Forever and ever, amen
Hello, love, let me introduce myself again

We'll go slow, take it easy
I'm kind of nervous, so believe me
I'm not in any kind of hurry
I've got lead boots on, don't you worry

I've been a skeptic so many times
But I want it to wait until it felt right
And now the birdies are singing so sweetly

Oh, let me introduce myself to you again
It's probably obvious
I wanna be more than friends

I still believe in, you still believe in
Forever and ever, amen
Hello, love, let me introduce myself again

I'm the girl whose heart
Was crushed and broken
I had locked it up
But now it's open

Let me introduce myself to you again
It's probably obvious
I wanna be more than friends

I still believe in, you still believe in
Forever and ever, amen
Hello, love, let me introduce myself again

It's probably obvious
I wanna be more than friends
Let me introduce myself to you again
Hello, my name is Carolyn

Nice to meet you again

The Whole Thing lyrics - Carolyn Dawn Johnson

I spent my whole life trying to make
A little feel big enough
A drop here a touch there
Trying to make it all add up to love

You can't jump in the water
With one foot out and one foot in
I think I'd rather just be alone
Than to try and love that way again

I don't want just a corner
I don't want just a piece
Don't want a little taste
I don't want a little peek

Half way or half of
Is just not good enough for me
Oh, I want the whole thing
Yeah, I want the whole thing

So if you got something that you wanna say
Well, baby, this would be the time
Are we or aren't brave enough
Brave enough to lay it all on the line

Anytime you gamble
There's a chance you might get hurt
Or you might just find
That forever kind of love
That we both deserve

I don't want just a corner
I don't want just a piece
Don't want a little taste
No, I don't want a little peek

Well, half way or half of
Is just not good enough for me, no
I want the whole thing
Yeah, I want the whole thing
Yeah

One more crumb
That won't fill me up
One more sip
That won't fill my cup

Don't ask me for another night
'Cause, baby I can't
I'm tired of calling cabs in the morning light
With my high heels in my hands

I want the whole thing
Yeah, I want the whole thing
I need the whole thing
Yeah, I want the whole thing

I'd Still Have You lyrics - Carolyn Dawn Johnson

Didn't know til I was alone
How much I'd miss your love
When you were gone
Waking up without you was all it took
That's when I knew

What I thought
That I wanted
Feels a lot
Like a heartache don't it
If I could go back
Clean the slate
Just like that
Change my mind
Hit rewind
Make you love me
Just one more time
Everything I've done
I'd undo
And I'd still have you

I'd still hold you in my arms at night
Instead of laying alone wondering why
It took you going away
For me to know
It was a big mistake

What I thought
That I wanted
Feels a lot
Like a heartache don't it
If I could I'd go back
Clean the slate
Just like that
Change my mind
Hit rewind
Make you love me
Just one more time
Everything I've done
I'd undo
And I'd still have you
yeah yeah

I just wanna love you one more time
I just wanna love you
I just wanna take back all I've done
I just wanna undo
I just wanna love you one more time
I just wanna love you
I just wanna take back all I've done
I just wanna undo
Yeah yeah

What I thought
That I wanted
Feels a lot
Like a heartache don't it
If I could I'd go back
Clean the slate
Just like that
Change my mind
Hit rewind
Make you love me
Just one more time
Everything I've done
I'd undo
And I'd still have you
yeah yeah

I'd still have you
Ohhhh
oh I'd still have you
yeeaaaahhhh
oh ho yeah
oh ho yeah

Stop For Me lyrics - Carolyn Dawn Johnson

I had big plans
More powerful than a locomotive
Innocent as a flower growing
In the middle of a barley field
I didn't understand
That you could have pockets overflowing with determination
Give it all you got with no congratulations
And still be at the bottom of the hill
Waiting at the station
With the rails laid out before me
Trying to be patient
Hoping it didn't leave

Sitting on a suitcase
Crossing fingers counting the days til it arrived
I was sure that it was coming
But somehow it just passed me by
Oh how could I be so naive
I always thought this train would stop for me

I had a ticket
That was paid for with my hard earned money
I thought that maybe that would count for something
Wasn't looking for a free ride
But nobody mentioned
ohhh sometimes all the passenger seats are taken
The cars are full and it's a rude awakening
When you're left behind
So disappointed... yeah
I never even got to try
Instead of living in the moment... ohhh
I've been wasting all this time

Sitting on a suitcase
Crossing fingers counting the days til it arrived
Ohhh I was sure that it was coming
But somehow it just passed me by
Oh how could I be so naive
Well I always thought this train would stop for me

Stop, stop, stop, I always
Thought, thought, that it would stop

Sitting on a suitcase
Crossing fingers counting the days til it arrived
Ohhhhhh I was sure that it was coming
But somehow it just passed me by
Oh how could I be so naive

I always thought this train
Yeah I always thought that this train yeah
I always thought this train would stop for me

I thought it would stop for me yeah...

Reach You lyrics - Carolyn Dawn Johnson

You pick up the phone
Tell me that you're so alone
And you don't feel like living today

I put the coffee on
It's gonna be a long, long night
But maybe this will be the night
When the dam breaks

You let me in and you shoo-ed me out
I wanna help you but I don't know how

To reach you, I wish I could breach you
I'm doing all that I can, I'm trying to understand
I'm outside of the fire, holding out my hand
Trying to reach you, oh

You hang on to the ledge
Like it's your best friend
I'd like pull you in from
Out of the rain, out of the pain

But I can't reach you, I wish I could breach you
I'm doing all that I can, I'm trying to understand
I'm outside of the fire, holding out my hand
Trying to reach you

It's like you turned out the lights
And I'm walking in the dark
Just trying to get to where you
Oh where you are

I'm just trying to reach you
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
Oh, won't you let me get close to you?
'Cause there's nothing I won't do, no
Nothing I won't do

To reach you, I wish I could breach you
I'm doing all that I can, I'm trying to understand
I'm outside of the fire, holding out my hand
Trying to reach you

I'm just trying to reach you
I'm trying to reach you, yeah, yeah
Trying to reach you

I Just Want My Life Back lyrics - Carolyn Dawn Johnson

Used to get up at 7
Make breakfast for the children
Get them out to the bus by 8

Sit down with a coffee
Throw the hair in a pony
Make sure the kitchen was clean
And the bed was made

Then make plans for dinner
But the laundry waits
Check in with the husband
At least a couple of times a day

That was before I came home
Before walked in and I found
Him with the neighbor
Who I thought was a friend

Now I am down on my knees
Begging, please God, please
I just want my life back again

Had a garden and flowers
Where I spent hours and hours
It was a homecoming sight to see

And I would hang in my cozies
While we watch old rented movies
You said, "You don't have to dress up
For me"

That was before I came home
Before walked in and I found
Him with the neighbor
Who I thought was a friend

Now I am down on my knees
Begging, please God, please
I just want my life back again

I had everything I dreamed
This just can't be happening
How am I supposed to go on
Where did go so wrong?

I just want my life back
I just want my life back

Everything I built, everything I had
I just want my life back
That can't be too much to ask, oh no
I just want my life back
How could it change just like that

I just want my life back
I just want my life back
Please, God, please
