Pure Love - Shadows On The Moon - 2009

(Michael Geogiades)
***
Pure love can hurt so bad
Sometimes you don't get what you want and you lose what you had
Pure Love Pure Love
Pure love runs so deep
You always hold on tightest to what you know you can't keep
Pure Love Pure Love let it go...you gotta give it away
Late at night I call out your name
Wake myself from dreamin maybe I won't feel the pain
I tried all I could to separate myself from you
Only separate myself from you
Pure Love Pure Love Pure Love
Pure Love Will find a way
And when every word's been spoken and there's nothing left to say
Pure Love Pure Love Is all you're gonna hear
Late at night I call out your name
I wake myself from dreamin maybe I won't feel the pain
I tried all I could to separate myself from you
Only separate myself from you
Pure Love Pure Love Pure Love
Pure Love Pure Love Pure Love

Hard Heart - Shadows on the Moon - 2009

(Michael Geogiades)
***
We tried to write but the words wouldn't come
We showed emotion until we went numb
Would'da made more love only if we had some
Would'da had the answers if we weren't so dumb
We couldn't breath there wasn't room inside
We said good bye to one another and passed on by
We thought we were clever we thought we were smart
We thought our way out of love with a hard hard heart
We saw the promise slip through our hands
To try to make each other understand
Does it ever work out the way you plan?
How do you get back to where we began?
We couldn't breath there wasn't room inside
We said good bye to one another and passed on by
We thought we were clever we thought we were smart
We thought our way out of love with a hard hard heart
Maybe time apart will soften the way we feel
But if we don't lose these hard hearts, we'll never heal.
I can't explain the things that I do
One thing for certain I know is true
I can't see me loving someone new
It may take a lifetime to get over you
We couldn't breath there wasn't room inside
We said good bye to one another and passed on by
We thought we were clever we thought we were smart
We thought our way of love with a hard hard heart
We thought our way of love with a hard hard heart
We thought our way of love with a hard hard heart

Somebody to Love - Shadows on the Moon - 2009

(Michael Geogiades)
***
Are you the girl of my dreams...are you for real?
Sometimes I think I'll be alone forever it's just the way I feel.
Such a big world and so much room to hide
How will I recognize you when you're standing by my side?
Won't you please send me somebody...somebody to love?
Won't you please send me somebody...somebody to love?
They say that people can be like ships passing through the night
Just exactly what does it take for us to get it right?
In the seemingly endless game of give and take
These feelings come together only to break
Won't you please send me somebody...somebody to love?
Won't you please send me somebody...somebody to love?
Will someone ever really love me?
Will someone ever really care?
When someone really gets to know me
Will they still be there?
Won't you please send me somebody...somebody to love?
Won't you please send me somebody...somebody to love?
I've been living this life of fame and coolness where no one gets too near
I've been through this pain way too many times
I just can't face the fear It's better to have loved and lost,
So I've been told I've got so much love to give deep in my soul
Won't you please send me somebody...somebody to love?
Won't you please send me somebody...somebody to love?
Won't you??

Beat of My Heart - Shadows on the Moon

(Mike Georgiades)
***
Send down the key to open the door
Of the room where I'm holding myself prisoner
I'm here inside with pictures of her
And the last message with her voice on my machine
Send down the peace that can take away the fear
I'm frozen only by the thought of losing her
How perfect she'll reject me only in the name of love
And leave me wanting as she folds away
Each time I hear her voice I remember just how much she meant to me
I hear it over and over and over just like the beat of my heart...
beat of my heart
Send down the love that can only heal the pain I'm living like a monk in isolation
Help me to accept all the things that I can't change I think I've had enough and I surrender
Each time I hear her voice I remember just how much she meant to me
I hear it over and over and over
Just like the beat of my heart...oh the beat of my heart
Just like the beat of my heart
Just like the beat of my heart
Just like the beat of my heart the beat of my heart
