Wrecking Ball Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo, Scarlet Keys and Joie Scott Brick by brick, you built this house of love on nothing but lies Holes in the walls, cracks in my heart and nothing inside My regrets are piling up like your empty beer cans on the porch This place we’re in should be condemned I should have done it long before Bring on the wrecking ball, stand back let her swing Level this love to a pile of rubble Cause it ain’t worth a thing or the trouble Tumble it down to dust ‘Til that’s all that’s left of us I‘ll stand alone but I’ll stand tall Bring on wrecking ball I’m the one who’s always finding ways to fix things up Guess I’m not that handy when it comes to broken trust Your screen door squeaking sneaking in and that boy gone bad routine Turned this soft hearted woman To a demolition queen Bring on the wrecking ball, stand back let her swing Level this love to a pile of rubble Cause it ain’t worth a thing or the trouble Tumble it down to dust ‘Til that’s all that’s left of us I‘ll stand alone but I’ll stand tall Bring on wrecking ball If you’re wondering how it’s gonna feel Think about 10 thousand pounds of cold grey steel coming down Tumble it down to dust ‘Til that’s all that’s left of us I‘ll stand alone once and for all Bring on wrecking ball Bring on the wrecking ball Copyright 2007 Susan Kean Cattaneo/Scarlet Keys/Joie Scott

Lay Your Heart On Me Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo It’s mighty heavy holding up the world I watch you stumble, but you never fall Aren’t you tired of proving you’re the one who knows it all Stubborn pride is like a shadow It follows every step you take But there’s no shame in knowing when to bend And when to break (Why don’t you) Lay your heart on me Set your trouble down, nice and easy Lay your heart on me I’ll bring silence to your sound I’ll be your sanctuary Lay your heart on me. Lay it on These open arms will never judge you I’ll keep your dreams and secrets safe All that matters is this bed and this night And this love and this life (so) Lay your heart on me Set your trouble down, nice and easy Lay your heart on me I’ll bring silence to your sound I’ll be your sanctuary Lay your heart on me I’ll feel every beat like its my own So come on home (and) Lay your heart on me Set your trouble down Nice and easy Lay your heart on me I’ll bring silence to the sound I’ll be your sanctuary Lay your heart on me. Lay it on. Copyright 2008 Susan Kean Cattaneo

Love Takes What It Takes Words and music by Susan Cattaneo, Scarlet Keys, Denny Hemingson and Anthony Dean Brown Love, dumb love It fools you into thinking you’re the one Then it’s done….But you’re not done Love oh love It’s a dance that spins you dizzy til you fall Then you fall….And the crazy thing about it all is You’ve got an ache in your heart a canyon wide But you’re stepping off the ledge to give it one more try Every damned hello Every long goodbye Every dead end road And still you try Through the broken years And a million tears It’s worth the wait Cause love takes what it takes til it takes Love takes what it takes til it Heart, oh heart Keep beating til you finally catch that spark Oh, heart Hang your hope on every shooting star Love is a desert sky with the promise of rain But there’s not a cloud in sight to help you find your way through Every damned hello Every long goodbye Every dead end road And still you try Through the broken years And the river of tears It’s worth the wait Cause Love takes what it takes til it takes Love takes what it takes Copyright 2008 Cattaneo/Keys/Hemingson/Brown

Get Back The Longing Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo There hasn’t been thunder since I don’t when We touch but my heart lies still And I haven’t seen lightning the way it was then So bright Behind my closed eyes when you hold me tight And that ain’t fair to you and it ain’t right I want to get back the longing Right all the wronging Start making sense of this mess that we’re in I want to get back to kissin you Catch my breath missing you Just like I used to when we loved before Get back the longing That’s what I’m longing for How did I get from I do to I can’t Caught in the traffic of life And when did the distance, stop me from wishing On that star To find my way back here to where you are Feels so far I want to get back the longing Right all the wronging Start making sense of this mess that we’re in I want to get back to kissin you Catch my breath missing you Just like I used to when we loved before Get back the longing That’s what I’m longing for Slowly, kiss me, help me forget Take me back to when I had no regrets I want to get back the longing The ache and the wanting Stop the world spinning when I’m in your arms I want to get back the feeling Those butterflies reeling inside me Each time that you walk through the door Get back the longing That’s what I’m longing for To get back the longing That’s what I’m longing for Copyright 2007 Susan Kean Cattaneo

Just Want to Know That It Mattered Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo and Scarlet Keys I had another restless night Lost in this maze of sheets And there you were again A memory I can not put to sleep I dreamed that you kissed me God, I swear it felt so real It’s still a mystery I can’t shake the way it feels i wanna know, baby Do you ever dream of me And wonder where I am Do you ever think of me For reasons you still don’t understand I’m not looking for happy ever after Just want to know that it mattered Did you end up in Atlanta Are you the man you thought you’d be Did you find the love of your life And is she anything like me Are your arms around her Couple a kids just down the hall Does it ever get crowded When old memories come to call I wanna know, baby Do you ever dream of me And wonder where I am Do you ever think of me For reasons you still don’t understand I’m not looking for happy ever after Just want to know that it mattered Every kiss every touch, how I loved you so much Hey baby, weren’t we something Sure, our heart have let go but ain’t it good to know It wasn’t all for nothing Do you ever dream of me Cause I sure dream of you And we’re seventeen again And there is nothing that we can’t do Just living on love and laughter Just want to know that it mattered Copyright 2004 Susan Kean Cattaneo/Scarlet Keys

Wild Irish Moon Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo and Scarlet Keys It was a day come fast Never meant to last Some love is just like that Lights up like candle Blows out like a match It was a smile that came out of nowhere A joy my heart had never known A slice of day, a stop along the way But I’ll never be the same Like a wild Irish moon Gone too soon, gone too soon Rises up in a velvet sky Then slips below the cloud line, waving goodbye Saying, don’t you cry We had our time to shine It was ours for a moment But it wasn’t ours to keep Just a snapshot to remember I’ll see you in my dreams Like a wild Irish moon Gone too soon, gone too soon Rises up in a velvet sky Then slips below the cloud line, waving goodbye Saying, don’t you cry We had our time to shine Once. Just once. The two of us, the two of us Once. Just once. Oh, please, let it be enough Like a wild Irish moon Gone too soon, gone too soon Rises up in a velvet sky Then ducks behind the cloud line, waving goodbye And I won’t cry We had our time to shine We had our time to shine We had our time to shine It was a day come fast Copyright 2008 Susan Kean Cattaneo/Scarlet Keys

You Can’t Chase A Train Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo I’m always looking in the rear view miror Holding on to what’s behind Every kiss every moment still in my mind And I like to take apart Every broken heart Find out what when wrong and why I keep going back But it don’t change the past You can’t chase a train You can’t catch the wind You can’t make it rain When sky of bluest blue wants in Some things you hold Some things you gotta let go There’s no use stayin on What’s gone has up and gone You can’t chase a train New day’s coming Gonna stop running Gonna hide this hurt away Keep those memories in yesterday Sunset’s waiting, Full moon’s aching For the love I’m meant to feel And I ain’t gonna stop Til that’s what I got You can’t chase a train You can’t catch the wind You can’t make it rain When a sky of bluest blue wants in Some things you hold Some things you gotta let go There’s no use stayin on What’s gone has up and gone Can’t chase a train Copyright 2006 Susan Kean Cattaneo

Suddenly Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo On the road to true love I kissed my share of frogs I was like a magnet for losers and users And every Mr. Wrong Then you came long with the good stuff Now everything’s changing, even my luck because Suddenly you Suddenly me Suddenly, this is how love’s supposed to be I can’t believe What’s happening to me Lightining and butterflies Heart racing, starry eyed I’m falling for you just like summer rain falls from the skies Suddenly I’m dancing in your downpour Don’t ever let it end Kiss me under starlight and sunlight And all night Until I say “when”, I won’t ever say when Cause I got a taste of the good stuff I’m drinking you in, I just can’t get enough because Suddenly you Suddenly me Suddenly, this is how love’s supposed to be I can’t believe What’s happening to me Lightining and butterflies Heart racing, starry eyed I’m falling for you just like summer rain falls from the skies Suddenly Copyright 2008 Susan Kean Cattaneo

Took Away My Sky Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo, Scarlet Keys and Janice Fitzgerald In your eyes I saw a smoky mountain sunset In your kiss, I felt the whole world spinning just for us And in your touch, I felt beautiful You turned this simple heart Into a work of art How could you love me like that So completely How could you love me like that And ever leave me How could I feel like this Heaven at my fingertips You gave me wings to fly Then took away my sky I’m the ash that’s left from a fire burned down to nothing I’m the scar that marks a place where love has been I’m in pieces baby Scattered on the ground Earthbound How could you love me like that So completely How could you love me like that And ever leave me How could I feel like this Heaven at my fingertips You gave me wings to fly Then took away my sky High, so high, above it all High, so high Wish I could say it was worth the fall How could you love me like that So completely How could you love me like that And ever leave me How could I feel like this Heaven at my fingertips You gave me wings to fly Then took away my sky Copyright 2007 Susan Kean Cattaneo/Scarlet Keys/Janice Fitzgerald

Red Light Kiss Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo and Kristin Cifelli Love is easy when you’re cruising on a Saturday night Free Falling’s on the radio, and everything’s alright You got one hand on the wheel and the other holding mine Here we are at 14th street and Vine The traffic’s stopped but we’re not wasting time Come on baby, quick Gimme a red light kiss Right now, Monday’s about a hundred miles away Soon enough it’s gonna catch up and turn into today So let’s roll down the windows and dare the stars to stay Gotta hold on tight til morning comes Gotta live this life before it’s done And slow it down to this A little red light kiss The world around us takes another spin But we’ll be standing still In a kiss A line of cars behind us, we don’t care Laughing cause we’ve got nowhere to be You and me On a night like this We just can’t resist A little red light kiss Copyright 2006 Susan Kean Cattaneo/Kristin Cifelli

Whiskey Into Tears Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo and Scarlet Keys I took a drink Then it took me To the bottom of a bottle of Jim Beam It took my fear, it took my pain It took my laughter and my hope, yeah it wanted everything As I bow my head over this glass Let it be my last Turn this whiskey into tears Help unravel all the years I wasted Freedom tasted That never fed my soul Turn this shadow into light Make this twisted spirit right somehow Take this heart and let it feel Turn this whiskey into tears I took a drink Then it took me To a place where I could drown the memory A clean escape, a heart that’s safe But it couldn’t fill the emptiness or resurrect my dreams It’s just a demon in a glass And It don’t change the past Turn this whiskey into tears Help unravel all the years I wasted Freedom tasted That never fed my soul Turn this shadow into light Make this twisted spirit right somehow Take this heart and let it feel Turn this whiskey into tears I’ve been down on the rocks, Now I’m down on my knees And if this prayer is within your reach Turn this whiskey into tears Help unravel all the years I wasted Freedom tasted That never fed my soul Turn this shadow into light Make this twisted spirit right somehow Take this heart and let it feel Turn this whiskey into tears I took a drink And it took me Copyright 2005 Susan Kean Cattaneo/Scarlet Keys
