Lyrics 1 - "My Collection"

lg-bullet-gold.gif (1240 bytes) "You Made Me Over-Overnight"

Words and music by: Red Johnson
Pub. Count Music BMI 1999

This song was written over several years. I knew it had a good hook, but sometimes the theme doesn't gel. I finished it the night before we took it in the studio, and it was there the sax came into play.

Love ain't worth the pain and heartache
That's the way I used to think
They'd be there a dime a dozen
All I had to do was wink
You were not yet in the picture
And it's so true now what they say

For everyone there is someone

One who'll steal your heart away

What a lovely world I live in
Life was never kind before
When I think that's all there is
You keep coming up with more
Just a basking in your sweetness
A lucky loser on a roll
I recall my past and shudder
Once a wreck and now I’m whole

Chorus:
You made me over-overnight
Now every-everything is right
You've really wet my appetite
You made me over-overnight
You made me over-overnight
I'm higher than a satellite
I'm still in shock, but that's alright
You made me over-overnight

Words and music by: Red Johnson
Pub. Count Music BMI 1999

This song was written for Valentines Day, I was going to do a show in Texas and thought I should write a love song for it. Thanks to you it was well received, and currently is being performed by several groups.

"Let it be you"

1. My legacy in life
May not amount to much
I may never leave my mark
On anything I touch
The wind will wipe my tracks
From the path when life is through
If I’m remembered by anyone
Let it be you

2. The things we treasure most
Are things you cannot buy
Like the children in our life
Or happy tears we cry
Let me live till the end
Feeling treasured like I do
If I’m remembered by anyone
Let it be you

Chorus:

Lord grant me the power
To keep your love through my last mile
And keep me one that's worthy
Of that proud loving smile
Every time I touch your hand
I can feel our love renew
If I’m remembered by anyone
Let it be you

Tag: if anyone remembers me
Let it be you
