I'm Home 03:01
I'm Home (Cherie Call) Storms are beating at the door But they can't reach me anymore The stove is warm, the sheets are clean And a fire is burning, it burns for you I'm home, I'm home Oceans tempt me to set my sails But the invitation fails The shades are drawn, the lights are low And my heart is yearning, it beats for you I'm home, I'm home So if you want to be a vagabond, if you want to roll like a stone Do what you have to do If you want to find the answers, if you want to find yourself I hope you find 'em in the place where I am too Life is hard even when you're strong You've got to find the place where you belong Strangers call and lovers woo And my world is turning, it spins for you I'm home, I'm home I'm home

It Isn't Your Song (Cherie Call) Once upon a time I turned the TV on Because it didn't play your song like my mind always seemed to do And once upon a time I used to keep from sleep Because I dreamt too deep about the times when I was with you And in the background was that song again I can't fight it anymore, so I'll pretend that Chorus: It isn't your song and I don't fall apart Or melt to the madness of the breaking of my heart I won't skip a beat when the first note plays Or crumble down to the floor Because it isn't your song, it isn't your song anymore. Once upon a time I used to love that song Before it all went wrong, before I ever laid eyes on you and Once upon a time it used to make me dance It made me want romance And you walked in right on cue And then the credits rolled and we were through So the one thing left to do is take it back from you, so (repeat chorus) I'm gonna sing it half a million times at a karaoke bar I'm gonna wave my phone while a superstar sings it live I'm gonna play it on repeat until it doesn't get to me As if I'm the one As if I'm the one who decides that (repeat chorus)

Making Peace With A Dream That Won't Come True (Cherie Call) You're the guy who's always on the run I tried to catch you baby, just for fun I stood and waited right outside your door And I tried to call it fate when you knocked me to the floor Chorus: I tried to make you love me and you thought you could You divied up your heart the way you thought you should And I held it all together with staples and glue Now I'm making peace with a dream that won't come true Some people dream they're gonna walk on Mars Or climb up a mountain till they touch the stars Or dive to the bottom of the ocean blue My big dream was being perfect for you (repeat chorus) When you couldn't be a lover I became a fighter You dimmed your torch I burned mine brighter Then I lost my will And you wouldn't lift a finger Now our love is gonna be A dream without a dreamer I'm no quitter but I've had enough I've got a stack of better dreams to love Right now that's exactly what I'm gonna do Now that I'm not so busy chasing after you (repeat chorus)

The Day The Stars Came Down (Cherie Call) I wrote the story of our love On a great big piece of paper And I cut it up in little stars So nobody would know who you are Because they didn't want to hear it anymore I should have long since given up But I held you in my heart through it all And I stuck those stars all over every wall And I wished upon them for the day that you'd return You'd remember what you missed And you would come back for my kiss I kept surrounded by my emptiness and hope Shining at me all around Till the day the stars came down I still believed that you would call But when you did it took me by surprise When you told you had planned your wedding day You couldn't see me wipe the tears away And I didn't want to hear it anymore But I let you be the first one to hang up I thanked you for the good news and the call And I just stared up at those stars upon my wall Cause I I had wished upon them for the day that you'd return You'd remember what you missed You wouldn't break my heart like this I kept surrounded by my emptiness and hope Shining at me all around Till the day the stars came down One by one I took them down and I threw them all away And I opened up my heart to a clean slate And all at once I looked outside and I finally saw the light Of real stars shining down through the night And now I wish upon them for a love that's meant to be And I try to wish you well I still remember how I fell But I am thankful when your name gets thrown around All around this little town For the day the stars came down

I Am a Homeless Song (Cherie Call) I am a melody, I am a mystery Somebody wrote me down, I have a history But I am not on a landmark record That people write about in Rolling Stone I am alone I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song They try to put me on the perfect playlist but I don't belong And I'll I really need is for you to listen to me And if you get to know me well I'll let you sing along I am a homeless song When all my words get out, they're gonna want to touch your mouth I'm broken and I'm still a mess, but isn't that what love's about? You're gonna wonder how I know your story And you'll discover when your mind gets blown You're not alone I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song They try to pitch me to the famous singer but I don't belong And all I really need is for you to listen to me And if you get to know me well I'll let you sing along I am a homeless song You don't have to say that I'm your favorite You don't even have to know my name You don't have to try to make me famous Just play me Play me I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song They try to put me in a romance movie but I don't belong And all I really need is for you to listen to me And if you get to know me well I'll let you sing along with me I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song

Love Me If You Can (Cherie Call) Tonight I tried to write the perfect song of love But all the words I sang were blue Because I've tried and I've tried to win you over And I've done the best that I can do So we may never be together But my heart is in your hands And if you ever think about me in your long lost dreams Love me if you can I know that you've moved on, it's what you had to do I never had the chance to say goodbye It's on my list of all the things I never said It goes on for pages and it keeps me up at night And my heart is missing pieces that only you could understand And if you ever think about it in your long lost dreams Love me if you can So this song I sing is a little sad and it's unrehearsed I just hope you hear that this broken life has had a second verse Cause in those days gone by I tried to build you castles And maybe they just turned to sand But if you can only love who you wished I could have been I wish you knew it's finally who I am I remember how you needed me And I know yesterday will never come again But if you feel me reaching for you in your long lost dreams Love me if you can If you feel me reaching for you in your long lost dreams Love me if you can

Stronger Than I Was Before (Cherie Call) I threw away my pride I crumbled down and cried But I'm stronger than I was before I didn't win the prize But I am still alive And I'm stronger than I was before I am stronger, so much stronger I am stronger than I was before I can't say that I won the fight But I think I'm gonna be alright It's not gonna hurt me anymore I held on for so long And still I got wrong But I'm stronger than I was before I made a bad mistake I knew my heart would break But I'm stronger than I was before I am stronger, so much stronger I am stronger than I was before I can't say that I won the fight But I think I'm gonna be alright It's not gonna hurt me anymore Nobody's gonna hoist me on their shoulders When all I am is older and wiser than yesterday You may never see the way these things have changed me Or how my struggles saved me They're gonna save me anyway It used to worry me To take a little leap But I'm stronger than I was before I have met defeat And now it won't scare me Cause I'm stronger than I was before I am stronger, so much stronger I am stronger than I was before I can't say that I won the fight But I think I'm gonna be alright It's not gonna hurt me anymore I'm stronger than I was before

Big Yellow Moon (Cherie Call) You can walk me home if you want to It's not that far Walk me home Nights like these were never made for driving in cars We could count the sidewalk cracks Or wish on mars Walk me home, walk me home Chorus: There's a big yellow moon in the sky tonight And it's just about to pass us by And it's just the sort of night that was made for three You and the big yellow moon and me You can hold my hand if you want to While we walk home Or you can walk the other way if you'd rather be alone But think of all the things that we will never know Walk me home, walk me home (repeat chorus) Tomorrow will keep, whether or not we get any sleep Tell me I'm right, that walking home was made for evenings just like tonight Cause it seems so right (repeat chorus)

Marry Me 03:33
Marry Me (Cherie Call) Baby is it time to set the date I'm shaking and my heart can hardly wait And everybody wants to know the fate Of this forever You can wear a suit and I'll wear white We'll make your mom and daddy dance all night Underneath the stars that shine so bright When we're together And at the end of that day With the rice on the floor and the friends gone away All that will matter to me is you It's meant to be Marry me Baby when you finally wear my ring I'm gonna hear a thousand angels sing With heaven in the distance echoing So sweetly Your sister's gonna wear a satin dress The cake is gonna make a great big mess My mother's gonna cry when you confess That you need me And at the end of that day When we walk out the door and you whisk me away All that will matter to me is you It's meant to be Marry me It doesn't have to be in June Just promise that a million days from now Will be a day I'm still with you And at the end of that day If the stars are in flames and the world's gone away All that will matter to me is you It's meant to be Marry me

The Fall 05:15
Summertime is in all the love songs And summertime is when I fell for you But summertime never lasts forever And wintertime is when things usually fall through Chorus: I was ready for the heartbreak conversation I was ready for a "Sorry, see you later" And I was ready for some sad midnight telephone call I just wasn't ready for the fall Summer days were so soft and dreamy Weeks flew by and we fell in love so fast But cooler winds only drew you closer I never knew that such a perfect love could last (repeat chorus) You're still here, you're still here And I fall for you, over and over Like the leaves letting go in a wild October storm But when the winds slow down and the cold moves in You'll still be there to keep me warm (repeat chorus) I'll get ready for the winter and the fire I'll get ready for the springtime and desire And every summer I'll be glad you can hold me through it all Hold me and help me through the fall (repeat)

Sweet, Sweet Dreams by Cherie Call Verse 1: Cowboys and dandelions Popcorn and butterflies Magic carpets and purple kites Can't wait for you to arrive Just put on your cape and fly down the hall To the second snore on the right This is bound to be a beautiful night Chorus: In your sweet, sweet dreams You can do anything When you sleep in the language of angels Children are kings and queens In your sweet, sweet dreams Verse 2: Monsters and big brown bears Never make reservations there Scrapes and bruises and hurts and tears Haven't been seen for years And fire engines are just big red trucks That men in red hats like to drive This is bound to be the time of your life Chorus: In your sweet, sweet dreams You can do anything When you sleep in the language of angels Children are kings and queens In your sweet, sweet dreams Bridge: Don't you fear I will be right here When the dreamland sunlight train brings you home Chorus: In your sweet, sweet dreamsYou can do anything When you sleep in the language of angels Children are kings and queens In your sweet, sweet dreams
