Parachute

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

We’re on the phone at 2 A.M.

And I’m not hanging up

You sing to me, I laugh again

‘Cause I can’t get enough

 

I doodle your name on my notes,

Can’t keep my mind on school

I simply don’t know where it goes

‘Cause all I see is you

 

Always on replay, fallin’ for you

 

La la, La la, I love you

La la, La la, you know I do

La la, La la, I’m fallin’

Find me a parachute

 

La la, La la, I need you

La la, La la, you need me too

La la, La la, I’m fallin’

Find me a parachute

 

We’re holding hands I see your eyes

And I’m in a free fall

I smile when I realize

That I’m not scared, I’m

 

Always on replay, fallin’ for you

 

La la, La la, I love you

La la, La la, you know I do

La la, La la, I’m fallin’

Find me a parachute

 

La la, La la, I need you

La la, La la, you need me too

La la, La la, I’m fallin’

Find me a parachute

And when I feel like I am fallin’ to the ground

You put your arms around me

And I know I’m your girl

And even when we’re standing in a crowd

You’re all I see

With no cares in the world

 

La la, La la, I love you

La la, La la, you know I do

La la, La la, I’m fallin’

Find me a parachute

 

La la, La la, I need you

La la, La la, you need me too

La la, La la, I’m fallin’

Find me a parachute

 

La la, La la, I love you

La la, La la, you know I do

La la, La la, I’m fallin’

Find me a parachute

 

La la, La la, I need you

La la, La la, you need me too

La la, La la, I’m fallin’

 

Find me a parachute

 

Cloud 9

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

I got that Friday morning spring in my step

I’m gonna dance ‘cause no one’s stopped me yet

I bet you’d smile too if you knew

It’s such a beautiful day

 

‘Cause the world looks great from up above

Nothin’ you can’t do if you have love

I know you’d smile too if you knew

It’s such a beautiful day

 

Heey

 

Got my head in the clouds

And I’m not coming down

Nothin’ up here but blue skies

I’m here to play in the sunlight

 

Got my feet off the ground

And I’m not coming down

I’m taking my sweet time

I’m gonna stay here on Cloud Nine

 

Won’t you come with me up to the sky

Where the sun shines bright,

Where we can fly

I know you’d smile too if you knew

It’s such a beautiful day

 

Won’t you come where you can feel the breeze

Watchin’ sunlight play up on the trees

I know you’d smile too if you knew

It’s such a beautiful day

 

Heey

 

Got my head in the clouds

And I’m not coming down

Nothin’ up here but blue skies

I’m here to play in the sunlight

Got my feet off the ground

And I’m not coming down

I’m taking my sweet time

I’m gonna stay here on Cloud Nine

 

Oh the air’s so sweet up here

Where everything else can disappear

You’ve got the birds singing in your ear

And flying around

Let your troubles fade away

Let today be a better day

You don’t ever have to say you’re comin’ down

 

Got my head in the clouds

And I’m not coming down

Nothin’ up here but blue skies

I’m here to play in the sunlight

 

Got my feet off the ground

And I’m not coming down

I’m taking my sweet time

I’m gonna stay here on Cloud Nine

 

Got my head in the clouds

And I’m not coming down

Nothin’ up here but blue skies

I’m here to play in the sunlight

 

Got my feet off the ground

And I’m not coming down

I’m taking my sweet time

I’m gonna stay here on Cloud Nine

 

Cloud Nine

Maybe, Maybe Not

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

Grey skies are clearer when you’re here

The sun shines for you dear

When ever you’re around, I’m found

Let’s fly away

 

Oh how you’ve got me like a fool

I’m lovesick over you

Forever intertwined, be mine

Let’s fly away

 

Oh see what I do,

How I keep you,

Keep you guessing baby

Someday we may fly

Never k(no)w

I only answer “maybe”

Baby, maybe, but baby

Maybe not

 

Now I’ve got you in my spell

I caught you as you fell

In love, I’m what you want

Let’s fly away

 

Oh see what I do,

How I keep you,

Keep you guessing baby

Someday we may fly

Never k(no)w

I always answer “maybe”

Baby, maybe, but baby

Maybe not

If you want to fly away with me,

You’ll have to wait and see

Be on our way tonight,

We might,

Let’s fly away

 

We could fly away someday

You know just what I’ll say

I know I drive you crazy

Oh see what I do,

How I keep you,

Keep you guessing baby

Someday we may fly

Never k(no)w

I always answer “maybe”

 

Oh see what I do,

If I love you,

Keep you guessing baby

Someday we may fly

I’m the one

I always answer “maybe”

 

Baby, maybe, but baby

Maybe not

 

Young At Heart

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

We’re young at heart and

We’re just startin’

Our story isn’t written

But our song is on, so listen

 

They say we need to grow up

We’re pushing our luck

We need to act our age

I say we’re just doing what we love

 

They say our crazy says are gone

And we need to move on

We need to get a life

I say we’re just doing what we want

 

We know we’ll never get too old for having fun

‘Cause you can play forever if your heart is young

 

We’re young at heart and

We’re just startin’

Our story isn’t written

But our song is on, so listen

As we play our music

Dancing to it, everybody has a part,

So sing: We’re young at heart!

 

Heey Heey

 

We’re young at heart

 

Heey Heey

 

‘Cause we’re okay with who we are

 

They say we’ll never be cool

To follow every rule

But we don’t care at all

I say we like playing like a fool

 

We know we’ll never get too old for having fun

‘Cause you can play forever if your heart is young

We’re young at heart and

We’re just startin’

Our story isn’t written

But our song is on, so listen

As we play our music

Dancing to it, everybody has a part,

So sing: We’re young at heart!

 

Heey Heey

 

We’re young at heart

 

Heey Heey

 

We’re young at heart

 

So if they try

To tear us down or throw us out tonight

I promise you that we will be alright

‘Cause we’re not going down without a fight

You know I’m right

 

We’re young at heart and

We’re just startin’

Our story isn’t written

But our song is on, so listen

As we play our music

Dancing to it, everybody has a part,

So sing: We’re young at heart!

 

Heey Heey

 

We’re young at heart

 

Heey Heey

 

We’ll take our place among the stars

 

Heey Heey

 

‘Cause we’re okay with who we are

 

Heey Heey

 

We’re Young at Heart

 

If you Like it

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

Oh I guess I couldn’t blame you

If you go a little crazy

‘Cause I’ve gone a little crazy over you

 

And I wish I could believe ya

Every time you call me baby

But I know you’re someone else’s baby too

 

When you walked into the room

You said that you would never play me

But I knew that was exactly what you’d do

 

And I’m falling hard for you

and there ain’t nothin’ that can save me

When you tease me with that sweet forbidden fruit

 

You’re the kind of guy

Who likes to play with fire

You tell me you don’t lie

I don’t believe you, little liar

 

You’re the kind of boy

Who’s bound to leave me lonely

You treat me like your toy

And then you tell me I’m your only

 

And you say what she don’t know

Will never hurt her

Well I can tell you that there’s something else I need

And if you ask me what exactly I would prefer

I need a minute where you belong to me

You’re the kind of guy

Who likes to play with fire

You tell me you don’t lie

I don’t believe you, little liar

 

You’re the kind of boy

Who’s bound to leave me lonely

You treat me like your toy

And then you tell me I’m your only

 

And you thought I’d never learn

But you’ve taken me to school

You teach me when you treat me like a fool

 

You’re the kind of guy

Who likes to play with fire

You taught me how to lie

By watching you, you little liar

 

You’re the kind of boy

Who’ll never leave me lonely

‘Cause, babe, I’m not your toy

If you don’t like it, you can…

 

Don’t lie to me

Don’t lie to me

 

We’ve had this fight so many times

And now you want to start it again

I’ve been around the block and I

Don’t want to go back to where I’ve been

 

You and I

Say the same things that we always say

So why try

If we’re never gonna change

 

I’m not gonna repeat, repeat what I’m sayin’

‘Cause I know that you heard, you heard what I said

I’m tired of the games, the games we’ve been playin’

You’re like a broken record in my head, and I say

 

Don’tcha think I’m not gonna miss the times we spent together

Don’tcha think I’m not gonna cry, you broke my heart in two

Don’tcha think I’m gonna forget the time we said forever

You should know all I want is to be next to you

 

You talk around in circles

Now, I know it’s time for me to leave

We’ve done this all before

We know it could go on endlessly

 

You and I

Say the same things that we always say

So why try

If we’re never gonna change

 

I’m not gonna repeat, repeat what I’m sayin’

‘Cause I know that you heard, you heard what I said

I’m tired of the games, the games we’ve been playin’

You’re like a broken record in my head, and I say

Repeat

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

Don’tcha think I’m not gonna miss the times we spent together

Don’tcha think I’m not gonna cry, you broke my heart in two

Don’tcha think I’m gonna forget the time we said forever

You should know all I want is to be next to you

 

I’m tired of goin’ round and round

I talk and you don’t hear a sound

My heart is breaking,

It’s too hard,

It’s taking all of me

 

On this Ferris wheel we always ride

We never reach the other side

In circles

Beating at my heart

It’s tearing me apart

 

So I’m not gonna repeat, repeat what I’m sayin’

‘Cause I know that you heard, you heard what I said

I’m tired of the games, the games we’ve been playin’

You’re like a broken record in my head and I say

 

Don’tcha think I’m not gonna miss the times we spent together

Don’tcha think I’m not gonna cry, you broke my heart in two

Don’tcha think I’m gonna forget the time we said forever

You should know all I want is to be next to

 

Repeat, repeat what I’m sayin’

‘Cause I know that you heard, you heard what I said

I’m tired of the games, the games we’ve been playin’

You’re like a broken record in my head

Like a broken record in my head

Like a broken record in my head

 

Lovesick

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

Gotta call in sick ‘cause I can’t

Can’t go to work today

I’ll be watching movies thinking

About all the things you’ve said

 

I’ve been eating feelings while I’m

Sitting on the couch all day

Trying hard to figure out what

Made us throw it all away

 

Someone find some medicine

To get me out of this mess I’m in

 

Lovesick I need help I’m

Breakin’ by myself

I’m cryin’ don’t know what to do

And I’m not goin’ out with friends

‘Cause I’m wonderin’ how you’ve been

I’m just tryin’ to get myself through

‘Cause I’m Lovesick over you

 

I’ve been home too long

And now I

Think I’ll go outside today

I could go to work and try to

Clean up all the mess I’ve made

 

Goin’ on a walk ‘cause maybe

This will be a better day

See someone who looks like you and

I can’t help but run away

 

Someone find some medicine

To get me out of this mess I’m in

Lovesick I can’t help I’m

Hopeless by myself

I’m tryin’ to get over you

And I’ll try goin’ out with friends

But I’m wonderin’ how you’ve been

Just tryin’ to get myself through

I’m still Lovesick over you

And I know that someday soon

I will be gone and over you

And all these clouds will go away

I know that there will come a day

 

Where I’ll put Lovesick on the shelf,

I’ll be dancin’ with myself,

I’ll be lovin’ how I’m over you

And I’ll be goin’ out with friends

Not carin’ how you’ve been

‘Cause I’ll know that I’ll have made it through

I think I may be sick of

 

Lovesick’s on the shelf

And I love being myself

And I know I’m finally over you

And I’m not home, I’m out with friends

And I don’t care how you’ve been

‘Cause now I’ve got better things to do

There’s no more Lovesick over you

There’s no more Lovesick over you

 

There’s no more love, I’m sick of you

 

Sandman

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

Hey mister sandman

Could you bring me a dream

I’ve been awake for hours

And I need to sleep, oh

 

I’m goin’ crazy but it’s out of my hands

That’s what I get for sleepin’ with the sandman

 

Hey mister sandman

I’ve been awake all night

And I can’t wait forever for you

here in the moonlight

 

I had a dream you told me you’d be my man

And that’s where I’ll be sleepin’ with the sandman

 

Wait all night ‘till he’ll be by my side

 

Sandman

Why don’t you take me away

I’m here and I need to escape

I’m waiting on you baby

 

Sandman

Comin’ as fast as I can

I’m runnin’ if you’ll take my hand

I’m waitin’

 

Hey mister sandman

Could you take me away
I’m gettin’ tired

And I need to escape, oh

 

I’m drifting off and this was never my plan

But I can’t help I’m sleepin’ with the sandman

 

Wait all night ‘till he’ll be by my side

 

Sandman

Why don’t you take me away

I’m here and I need to escape

I’m waiting on you baby

Sandman

Comin’ as fast as I can

I’m runnin’ if you’ll take my hand

I’m waitin’

 

Nothing’s keeping me from sleeping

You are here with me

And as the night gets nearer,

You grow clearer

Safely in my dreams

 

But as the day comes,

I have no one, I don’t want this

Don’t you get tired of making cameos

In my subconscious

 

Wait all night ‘till he’ll be by my side

Say I’m right, that you’ll be by my side

 

Sandman

Why don’t you take me away

I’m here and I need to escape

I’m waiting on you baby

 

Sandman

Comin’ as fast as I can

I’m runnin’ if you’ll take my hand

 

Sandman

Why don’t you take me away

I’m here and I need to escape

I’m waiting on you baby

 

Sandman

Comin’ as fast as I can

I’m runnin’ if you’ll take my hand

I’m waitin’

 

How can another come and do what only he can

Oh I’ll be wide awake at night without the sandman

 

More than Friends

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

It was a dark night,

Starlight hit you through the window pane

And somethin’ felt right,

you can’t fight that you came to play my game

 

(Riff)

 

There was a time when I was looking for a friend

But it cost me

That’s how he lost me

In the end, let’s not pretend

‘Cause I’m not really lookin’ for a friend

 

(Riff)

 

You pulled me in close,

I curled my toes and I knew you believed my lies

‘Cause I was like a rose,

So sweet but G*d knows,

I was gone before the sun could rise

 

(Riff)

 

There was a time when I was looking for a friend

But it cost me

That’s how he lost me

In the end, let’s not pretend

‘Cause I’m not really lookin’ for a friend

(Riff)

 

Now I’m fine, I’ll

Draw the line,

Take your time, ‘cause

Game, Set, Match

You’re mine

 

(Riff)

(Guitar solo)

 

Now I’m fine, I’ll

Draw the line,

I’m takin’ my time, but

Game, Set, Match

You’re mine

 

(Riff)

 

Stray Love

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

Who would have thought

That I’d find you and I’d be caught

Within your love, your love, your love

 

Who could have known

That my own heart was not my own

Because it’s yours and you are all I’m thinking of

 

I wanna tell you my high’s, my low’s, my life

When I’m without you my world’s in black and white

And I can tell you that something’s just not right

When I’m not with you

And now I know that there’s nothing I can say

nothing I can do

 

It’s raining cats and dogs

I’m standing with you in the rain

Just take my hand and music’s gonna play

As we sail off into the sea

Don’t let your love stray away from me

Oh, ooh, oh, oooh

Stray away from me

Oh, ooh, oh, oooooh

Stray away from me

 

Now I can see that you and I are meant to be

I’m happy and you are all I’m thinking of

It’s raining cats and dogs

I’m standing with you in the rain

Just take my hand and music’s gonna play

As we sail off into the sea

Don’t let your love stray away from me

Oh, ooh, oh, oooh

Stray away from me

Oh, ooh, oh, oooooh

Stray away from me

 

There’s nothing you can say

To make me turn away from

There’s nothing you can do

To make me change my mind

And everywhere you go

I’ll be there if you want me to

‘Cause you’ve been there through

 

My high’s, my low’s, my life

When I’m without you my world’s in black and white

And I can tell you that something’s just not right

When I’m not with you

And now I know that there’s nothing I can say

And I wouldn’t want to

 

It’s raining cats and dogs

I’m standing with you in the rain

Just take my hand and music’s gonna play

As we sail off into the sea

Don’t let your love stray away from me

Oh, ooh, oh, oooh

Stray away from me

Oh, ooh, oh, oooooh

Stray away from me

 

Skippin' Tracks

Music and Lyrics by Ali Astin

Do you remember the days when

You’d see me laughing and say how

You were made for me

 

Oh well,

I can’t help thinking about when

You’d say you loved me and say how

We were meant to be

 

So when I’m down and feelin’ blue

I’ll let the music take me back to you

 

Skippin tracks go back but I can’t find you

Rewind the time to when we weren’t through

Oh

‘Cause if our love was a melody

All I’d want is you to sing to me

And I’ll be skipping tracks

To find my way back to you

 

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo dooo

 

I’ll sit here watchin the rain and

I’ll hear you singin again

That song you sang for me

 

Come back when I’m feelin down ‘cause

I need you here with me now

You’re everything I need

So when I’m down and feelin’ blue

I’ll let the music take me back to you

 

Skippin tracks go back but I can’t find you

Rewind the time to when we weren’t through

Oh

‘Cause if our love was a melody

All I’d want is you to sing to me

And I’ll be skipping tracks

To find my way back to you

 

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo dooo

 

And I’ve been playin’ other records

I’ve been flippin through CD’s

Just to try to find a speck of

What I wanted us to be

But each time,

I’m taken back

To that same old 8-track

 

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo dooo

 

Skippin tracks go back but I can’t find you

Rewind the time to when we weren’t through

Oh

‘Cause if our love was a melody

All I’d want is you to sing to me

And I’ll be skipping tracks

To find my way back

 

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo dooo

 

Skippin tracks go back but I can’t find you
