Five for Fighting’s “Superman” Rewritten

I won’t run and hide
I will never flee
I’m just out to find
The best in “the new me”
I’m more than a girl; I’m more than a Jane
More than a random face with a damaged brain
It’s not easy to be me

Wish that I could cry fly
Be filled with much glee
Reach up to the sky
Be as free as I can be

It may sound absurd but don’t be naive
I still have the right to weep
I may be disturbed but won’t you concede
We all have the right to scream
It’s not easy to be me

Grounded is how I aim to be.
It’s all right. I will get some sleep tonight

I’m not crazy or anything
I won’t run and hide
I am not that weak
We weren’t meant to ride
With clouds between our knees

I’m only a gal fighting a feat
Fighting for my life on this one way street
I’m only a gal fighting a feat
Looking for special things inside of me
It’s not easy to be me.

“The Wanderer” Changed to “The Whirlwind” Lyrics

I’m the kind of gal who whirls all around.
Wherever there is havoc, I surely can be found.
I kick and I scream. I don’t know any names.
I fuss and fight, and I put you ALL to blame.
Cuz I’m the Whirlwind, Yes I’m the Whirlwind.
I whirl around around around around.

 

Oh well, there’s a mess to the left
And a wreck on the right.
If you get near me, I’ll put you afright.
And if you come to me and tell me you’re blessed
I’m sure you’ll want me placed under an arrest

 

Oh well I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
I’m always happy as a clown
With my wind tunnel, I’m always going everywhere.

 

I’m the kind of gal who whirls all around.
Wherever there is havoc, I surely can be found.
I kick and I scream. I don’t know any names.
I fuss and fight, and I put you ALL to blame.
Cuz I’m the Whirlwind, Yes I’m the Whirlwind.
I whirl around around around around.

Genesis’s “Throwing It All Away” Rewritten

Need I say I love you
Need I say I care
Need I say that interests,
Something we don’t share
I don’t want to be on the town
Trying to find sanity
Cos you know I know baby
That I don’t wanna go.

I do not game with you.
You don’t sing from your heart
That’s the situation
It’s in all our parts
Every time that I look at you
I can see the future
Cos you know deep inside me
That I don’t wanna go.

Throwing singing away
Throwing dancing away
There is nothing that we can say
To make me change my mind
I watch the world go round and round
And make mine turn so upside down
I’m creating a brand new day.

Now you will light up the darkness
I will hold your hand
We will find all the answers
When we don’t understand
You will not be the one
succeeding in convincing
To sever our time, baby
Cause I don’t wanna go.

No day will I be sorry
I am already free
Memories will remind us
That our love is meant to be
Late at night when you call my name
The only sound you’ll hear
Is the sound of my voice calling
responding to you.

Just throwing it all away.
Creating a brand new day.
There’s nothing we can say.
Yes, I’m throwing my passions away…

Roxette’s “It Must Have Been Love” Rewritten to “It’s Always Been Love”

We danced our sambas in the ballroom
Then it closed, and I was blue.
I’d wake up lonely, anc call your name
All I wanted was more of you

Touch me now, I close my eyes and dream away.

It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
It always been good; our web is well-spun
It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
Since our eyes locked and met, ’til the death of the sun.

I always feel that we’re together
And you’re sheltered in my heart.
I see you daily in every location
Like the paint upon the art.

And it’s a pleasant spring day in the sun’s ray

It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
It’s more than I wanted; you’ve completed me
It’s always been love and it’s just begun,
It reaches the asteroids, it reaches the galaxy.

It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
It always been good; our web is well-spun
It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
Since our eyes locked and met, ’til the death of the sun.

It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
It’s more than I wanted; you’ve completed me
It’s always been love and it’s just begun,
It reaches the asteroids, it reaches the galaxy.

(always been love, and it’s just begun[2x])

Selena’s “I Could Fall in Love” Rewritten

How I lost my heart that night
When we danced and swayed
And my face shines real bright
I’m thrilled that you have always stayed
Now I have taken you in my arms
And never will let you go

I have fallen in love with you
I have fallen in love with you

I often wondered how
Touching you would make me feel
I’m glad we took that chance somehow and
Tomorrow you will want me still
And I can’t keep this to myself
I’ll never let you go

I have fallen in love with you
I have fallen in love with you

And we know it’s all right
And I know we will always do what we should do
And I have fallen in love, fallen in love with you
I have fallen in love with you

And when you kiss me you send such burning embers
that eminate within me.
I hope somehow I give you the same residual love that you give me.

And I can’t keep this to myself
I’ll never let you go

Skyliners’ “Since I Don’t Have You” Rewritten to “If I Didn’t Have You”

I can have plans and schemes,
And I still have hopes and dreams,
I-I-I wouldn’t have anything
If I didn’t have you.

I have deep fond desires,
And I have many happy hours,
I-I-I wouldn’t have anything
If I didn’t have you.
I have ample happiness, and I’m blessed
Time and time again.

When you danced then kissed me,
Out walked old misery,
And he’s been gone since then.
I have much love to share,
And I have someone who cares.
I-I-I have every single thing
Since–I do–have–
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you

Extreme’s “More Than Words” Rewritten

Sayin’ I love you
Is less than I could ever convey to you
It’s not that I don’t want to
Say it but I want you to know
How deeply I wish to convey how much I feel

More than words is all I want to do to make it real
Then whenever I say that I love you
Then you’d already know
What would I do if your heart was torn in two?
More than words to show I feel
That my love for you is real
What could I do if you threw my love away?
Then I’d couldn’t  make things new
Just by saying I love you
More than words
(lad di da da di da)

Now that I’ve sang to you and helped you understand
All we have to do is close our eyes
And just reach out our hands and show love
I’ll hold you close and never let you go
More than words is all we ever need and how we show
Then we’d never have to say that I love you
Cause we’d both always know

What would I do if your heart was torn in two?
More than words to show I feel
That my love for you is real
What could I do if you threw my love away?
Then I couldn’t make things new
Just by saying I love you
More than words
(la di da da di da di da da da)
More than words
(la di da da di da di da da da)
More than words
(la di da da di da di da da da)
la di da da da da
More than words
Ooooohhhhhhh ooooohhhhhhh

Randy Van Warmer’s “Just When I Needed You Most” Rewritten

I upset you again.
You danced with our girl then.
The glow on my face went away.
You stormed out the door.
After saying no more.
I didn’t know that you left.

But I feel bluer than I felt blue before
And now where I’ll find comfort, God knows
‘Cause you left me just when I needed you most
Left me just when I needed you most.
I drove down the street.
The truck bench incomplete.
I was so lost finding you.
You called me and told me that you had left.
I was utterly blue.

Cause I need you more than I needed before
And now where I’ll find comfort, God knows
‘Cause you left me just when I needed you most
Left me just when I needed you most.

I upset you again.
You danced with her then.
The glow on my face went away.
You stormed out the door.
After saying no more.
I didn’t know that you left.

Reba McEntire’s “I’m a Survivor” Rewritten

I birthed my children early
And invested many days
I’ve always had a mother’s will
And God’s amazing grace
I guess I’ll keep on living
Even if this love is to die for
Because you tried to steal my family
You’ve long walked out and I’m not trying to change your mind
Cause I was born to be…
The baby girl without a chance
A victim of the circumstance
The one who ought to give up
But she’s just too hard-headed
A married mom who works three jobs
I love my kids and never stop
With gentle hands and a heart of a fighter
I’m a survivor
I don’t believe in self-pity
It only brings you down
May be the queen of broken hearts
But I don’t hide behind the crown
When the deck is stacked against me
I just play a different game
My roots are planted in the past
And though my life is changing’ fast
Who I am is who I wanna be
The baby girl without a chance
A victim of circumstance
The one who ought to give up
But I’m just too hard headed
A married mom who works three jobs
I love my kids and never stop
With gentle hands and a heart of a fighter
I’m a survivor….
Oh…A married mom who works three jobs
I love my kids and never stop
With gentle hands and a heart of a fighter
I’m a survivor….
And I’ve always had a mother’s will and God’s
amazing grace
I’m a survivor…(Say once then hum)

Don Williams’ “Love Is On a Roll” Rewritten

I don’t work late.
Unless we need the money.
Want to be home with my lovin honey.
He’ll be there waitin’, waitin’ for me patiently.
Love is on a roll.
Love is on a good roll.

Usually. he games with the boys on Friday.
Now that I’m singing, he says it’s my day.
The look he gives me sends a shiver down into my soul.
Love is on a roll.
Love is on a good roll.

Our love is on a roll.
Our love is on a good roll.

I’m a songwriter, a professional schemer
Mostly. a singer who loves being a screamer.
I should know if anybody knows at all.
When love is on a roll.
Love is on a good roll.

So I want to go, I want to be home early.
Be with my man who’s strong and burly.
Makes me feel like a queen
And not a slipshod schmo.
Love is on a roll.
Love is on a good roll.

Love is on a roll.
Love is on a good roll.

Our love is on a roll.
Our love is on a good roll.
Our love is on a roll.
Our love is on a good roll.

Love is on a roll.
Love is on a good roll.

Love is on a roll.
Love is on a good roll.
