Lyrics

All That’s Left
Music and Lyrics by Michelle Lewis

I could smile
pretend that I don’t feel the pain
Or act like things haven’t changed
but they’ve changed
I could lie
say that I did all that I could do
Or that I thought I had more time with you
but I think I knew

I never spoke to you that day
You just left a note with what you couldn’t say
Now your love has gone away
and all that’s left is yesterday

I put off
phone calls to you I had to make
Trips to your house I had to take
now I won’t take

I never spoke to you that day
You just left a note with what you couldn’t say
Now your love has gone away
and all that’s left is yesterday 

And I’ll forgive myself someday
that I wasn’t there for you
Things will never feel the same
without you in the room

I wish I spoke to you that day
Said all the things I never got to say
Before you took your love away
and all that’s left is yesterday
All that’s left is yesterday

How
Music and Lyrics by Michelle Lewis

I had it all, so I thought
How could I be so wrong?
You came in, I didn’t believe you when
You said “I don’t love you anymore.”

How did I get here? Where do I go?
When is it over? How will I know?
Where is the place that I call home?
How did I get here? Where do I go?

Swear to God, I am smart
How could I be so wrong?
Now it’s not just me, there’s a baby that’ll be
Coming before too long

How did I get here? Where do I go?
When is it over? How will I know?
Where is the place that I call home?
How did I get here? Where do I go?

Go on, go on
I’ve got to go on
Go on, go on
But how do I go on?

How did I get here? Where do I go?
When is it over? How will I know?
Where is the place that I call home?
How did I get here? Where do I go?
How did I get here? Where do I go?

In Love Again
Music and lyrics by Michelle Lewis & Robby Hecht

My old gal she’s got a list for me a mile long
No matter how I try I always seem to get it wrong
She rolls her eyes at me sometimes when we’re out with our friends
Tell me why am I in love again?

My old man he don’t remember a single word I say
I can’t seem to ever get his help in any way
When he starts tellin’ dad jokes, God, it’s so embarrassing
Tell me why am I in love again?

The things that drive us mad can sometimes keep us up at night
But they don’t seem so bad when we hold each other tight
Anywhere you’re going I want to go there, too
If we did it all again, guess I’d still fall in love with you

Well, my old man don’t buy me diamonds, but I know he cares
‘Cause every now and then he puts a flower in my hair
My old gal’s so beautiful, it should be a sin
And every day we fall in love again

The things that drive us mad can sometimes keep us up at night
But they don’t seem so bad when we hold each other tight
Anywhere you’re going I want to go there, too
If we did it all again, guess I’d still fall in love with you

Well, my old man don’t buy me diamonds, but I know he cares
‘Cause every now and then he puts a flower in my hair
My old gal’s so beautiful, it should be a sin
And every day we fall in love again
Every day we fall in love again

Just Like A Movie
Music and Lyrics by Michelle Lewis

Every girl dreams
For a love straight from an old Hollywood scene
With the moonlight in view
And someone to tell her “Here’s looking at you.” 

But we don’t have to worry too much
‘Cause Bogart and Bergman got nothing on us 

I love the way our plot is unfolding
You turn a silver screen into gold
I can’t believe that you would choose me
‘Cause you made our life just like a movie

Well some like it hot
Some need the adventure an action flick’s got
Some prefer drama scenes
Each couple has their own favorite theme 

But if there were one to describe you and me
I think we define romantic comedy

I love the way our plot is unfolding
You turn a silver screen into gold
I can’t believe that you would choose me
‘Cause you made our life just like a movie

And so the story goes
One day you did propose
And as we stand here in black and white
I can’t help but think it’s a wonderful life

I love the way our plot has unfolded
You turned our silver screen into gold
I can’t believe that you would choose me
‘Cause you made our life
Yes, you made our life
Yes, you made our life just like a movie

Lay On My Pillow
Music and lyrics by Michelle Lewis

Lay on my pillow, lay on my heart
Ain’t nothing now that can tear us apart
If you tell me your secrets, I’ll tell you mine
Lay on my pillow, you’ll be fine 

Stand next to me, hold my hand
Ain’t nothing now I won’t understand
If you tell me your troubles, I’ll tell you mine
Stand next to me, you’ll be fine

Stay with me always, no need to speak
Just touch me softly, that’s all I need
If you give me your life, I’ll give you mine
Stay with me darling, we’ll be fine
Stay with me darling we’ll be fine

Lost In LA
Music and Lyrics by Michelle Lewis  

I’m lost in LA, tonight, without you
This city seems empty, my heart torn in two
Things start to blur, can’t tell them apart
There’re no stars in the sky, the freeway’s so dark
Please don’t go to Reno, Tahoe or Sparks
cause I’m lost in LA without you

I’m lost in LA, tonight, without you
I’ve walked down on Melrose and Sunset Avenue
Wandered the Getty and it’s maze made of art
Saw Paramount Pictures where Popeye got his start
Who’ll take my photo by the Hollywood Stars?
See, I’m lost in LA without you

Stay here tonight
don’t get on that flight
that takes you far away from me

I’m lost in LA, tonight, without you
This bed feels so cold, my heart sore and blue
Don’t go to Reno or Tahoe or Sparks
‘cause I’m lost in LA without you
I’m lost in LA without you

None of That Now
Music and Lyrics by Michelle Lewis & Robby Hecht

Piles of laundry on the bedroom floor
Handle's broken on the bathroom door
There’re stacks of bills laying all around
Oh but I don't care about none of that now

The fridge is empty, the cupboard ignored
Gas light shining on my dashboard
There's gonna be traffic all the way downtown
Oh but I don't care about none of that now

It's easy to count up all that's wrong
When trouble's all that you can see
But all my worry disappeared
The first time that you smiled at me

My back is tired, my feet are sore
I barely make it to my front door
But I hear your voice and I turn around
Oh and I don't care about none of that now

It's easy to count up all that's wrong 
When trouble's all that you can see 
But all my worry disappeared 
The first time that you smiled at me 

My back is tired, my feet are sore 
I barely make it to my front door 
But I hear your voice and I turn around 
Oh and I don't care about none of that now

I hear your voice and I turn around
Oh and I don't care about none of that now
I don't care about none of that now
I don't care about none of that now

Please Don't Go
Music and lyrics by Michelle Lewis   

Please don’t go
I know your body’s aching and in pain
But I will always love you just the same 

Stay with me
This can’t be all the time I get with you
But the doctors say there’s nothing they can do

Please don’t go
Don’t listen to what He’s been telling you
Please just stay
This ain’t the first mistake that God has made

Please tell me
what else can I do to keep you here
I’d gladly give you a few of my years 

Please don’t go
Don’t listen to what He’s been telling you
Please just stay
This ain’t the first mistake that God has made 

I’ll be here
just in case you want to change your mind
Miracles, they happen all the time

Push On 
Music and Lyrics by Michelle Lewis & Robby Hecht

When you’re scared
when you’re tired 
When your breathing is the only sound 
When you’re numb
legs are heavy 
When your whole body’s breaking down 

Oh you gotta push on, push on, yeah 
Oh you gotta push on, push on, yeah 

When you’re lost
hands are empty 
Reaching out for what’s no longer there 
When your head
won’t stop spinning 
All you see is darkness everywhere 

Oh you gotta push on, push on, yeah 
Oh you gotta push on, push on, yeah

Running Back Home
Music and Lyrics by Michelle Lewis & Robby Hecht

My friend is yelling that she’s gonna leave him
She just can’t take it anymore
There’s no use staying once you’ve figured out
You’re in a never-ending war

We say goodbye, I pull my coat up tight
My steps grow quick under the stars
I turn the key and I go inside
And let you hold me in your arms

Ooh the way you love me baby’s got me running back home
Ooh the way you love me baby’s got me running back home

I used to wander Broadway at night
Go in and out of every bar
Had no idea what I was looking for
But now I know you’re never far

Ooh the way you love me baby’s got me running back home
Ooh the way you love me baby’s got me running back home

And when you need to wander off somewhere
I know you’ll be running home too

Ooh the way you love me baby’s got me running back home
Ooh the way you love me baby’s got me running back home
Ooh the way you love me baby’s got me running back home
Ooh the way you love me baby’s got me running back home

Scars
Music and Lyrics by Michelle Lewis

I grew up in Wellesley Hills
on a beat-up old pig farm
There wasn’t much to keep us fed
but even still it had its charms
I lost my first love to the war
not a bullet on the ground
He was just 1000 miles from home
when his plane came crashing down

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars

My second wedding bells did ring
children followed like they do
But cancer took my firstborn girl
then God took her daddy, too
I raised five kids all in the same house
I never made it to Italy
Now they tell me I must move out
‘cause they can’t take care of me

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars 

Hit this light switch on your way out
there’s nothing more for me to see
I should be dying any day now
if it were up to me
I wear the same clothes every day now
just sit and stare at the TV
I had them save my best blue dress
for when they bury me

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars


Sorry I Forgot To Write
Music and lyrics by Michelle Lewis 

Sorry I forgot to write
I know it's been so long since I
let you in, in any way
It's just that I've had enough
I'm growing tired, I've given up
Maybe there's nothing left to say

But I still feel you in my breath
I think about your beauty all the time
We'll always want one more chance
to get it right

Sorry I forgot to write
I know you've tried with all your might
to get me to come back around
It's just that I fell in love
with someone else I put above
everything else in my life

But I still feel you in my breath
I think about your beauty all the time
We'll always want one more chance
to get it right

We hold on to the hurt
Don't want it but to lose it's even worse
And the parts of us that still remain
keep pretending that everything's the same
when we've changed

Sorry I forgot to write
to tell the truth, I haven't tried
It's easier to feel ashamed
I know I wasn't there for you
we grew apart like lovers do 
Baby, I can take the blame

But I still feel you in my breath
I think about you every single night
We'll always want one more chance
to get it right
We'll always want just one more chance
to get it right

That’s What They Say
Music and lyrics by Michelle Lewis

I've lost all control
I've lost all creation
Forgot what I know
lost all sensation
I can't go
and I can't stay
But it'll be okay
That's what they say
That's what they say

I don't want myself
can't find my vision
Can't stand this show
don't want this prison
I can't go
and I can't stay
But it'll be okay
That's what they say
That's what they say

Well it's the last time I fool myself
into thinking it's forever
And it's high time I tell myself
it’s now or it's never
Well it's never going to be
how you dreamed it would be 

Can’t turn around
it’s too late for freedom
Where are the ones who count
when you need 'em?
I can't go
and I can't stay
But it'll be ok
That's what they say
That's what they say

Well it's the last time I fool myself
Into thinking it's forever
And it's high time I tell myself
It’s now or it's never
Well it's never going to be
How you dreamed it would be

Can’t turn around
it’s too late for freedom
Where are the ones who count
when you need 'em?
I can't go
and I can't stay
But it'll be ok
That's what they say
That's what they say
It’ll be okay
That's what they say
That's what they say

You and Me
Music and lyrics by Michelle Lewis

You and me we’ve got the kind of love that’s perfect in the spring
The sun comes out beneath the clouds and blooms everything
We’ll take a walk in Central Park when everything feels new
We’ll weather all the seasons, me and you

You and me we’ve got the kind of love that’s perfect on a boat
The waves will splash and tumble us but we still stay afloat
And if the sails should ever fail we will still make do
We’ll glide across the ocean, me and you

There were times I wasn’t sure if we would make it through the year
But through all the ups and downs I looked and you were still here
Sometimes this life will take me away from where you are
But all I do is think of you, you’re never really far

You and me we’ve got the kind of love that’s perfect for a song         
It’s got a simple melody, the crowd can sing along
And the chorus seems to write itself, in two-part harmony
We’ll hum that tune forever, you and me

There were times I wasn’t sure if we would make it through the year
But through all the ups and downs I looked and you were still here
Sometimes this life will take me away from where you are
But all I do is think of you, you’re never really far

You and me we’ve got the kind of love that’s perfect for a song           
It’s got a simple melody, the crowd can sing along
And of course the chorus writes itself in two-part harmony
We’ll hum that tune forever, you and me
We’ll hum that tune forever, you and me
