about

"What Love Is" is a labor of love musical project that, in song, tells the common story of how a man and a woman discover the aspects of love and embark on a journey to living happily ever after - an ending that sometimes seems to be in the minority now more then ever was.

Inspired by the title track, the project developed over ten years and a few setbacks, but we're glad to finally bring it to you. We hope you enjoy it and thank you in advance for listening.

Verse:

I know those times you noticed me
I said I saw you
The deal, the time, the mood was there
The warmth of your smile (Laugh)
Your laugh, your smile, It comforts me
It all around you
And you, you know the things to say
It just….. (Sigh…)
Chamorrita

Show me you care
My heart will be there
And tell me you long to hear
Those words…uh (sigh…laugh)

Don’t Wanna See You Go
Lyrics and Music © Copyright D. Ramsay 2003

Verse 1:
Here we are…miscommunication and reservation
Brought us to this point again
Can’t understand why we can’t get along, baby what is wrong
Aren’t I more than just a friend?

Bridge
I remember when you came my way
I couldn’t help but say
I had to make you mine forevermore…

Refrain
I don’t wanna see you walk out that door…anymore
wanna make amends…even if it means that we’re just friends
I don’t wanna see you walk out that door… anymore
I wanna make amends…baby can we start all over again
Verse 2:
The things we do…
We always seem to make the same mistake
We can’t seem to get it right
But this I know…I can’t bear to think of
You out of my life, love…
I just want to make things right…

Bridge
I remember when you came my way
I couldn’t help but say
I had to make you mine forevermore…

Refrain
I don’t wanna see you walk out that door…anymore
wanna make amends…even if it means that we’re just friends
I don’t wanna see you walk out that door… anymore
I wanna make amends…baby can we start all over again

Bridge
I remember when you came my way
I couldn’t help but say
I had to make you mine forevermore…

Refrain
I don’t wanna see you walk out that door…anymore
I wanna make amends…even if it means that we’re just friends
I don’t wanna see you walk out that door… anymore
I wanna make amends…baby can we start all over again

Starting Over
Words and Music - D. Ramsay Copyright 2003

Verse 1 (Male):
Here I am
Dreamin about the love that we had
Rememberin' all the good times and the bad
Wonderin' if there's something we could do
To resurrect the love between me and...

Bridge
You …know….I….still have a place in my heart…
For you baby…..
although others came my way and I chose to want to stray
But girl that was then, now I wish we can begin again

Refrain:
Starting over is what I want to do
I realized I made mistakes, let me prove my love to you
Starting over, baby can you find it in your heart
to give me another chance with you and make a brand new start

Verse 2 (Female):
Here I stand
Thinkin' about the things I did to you
It wasn't my intention to make you sad and blue
I'm lookin' back on the good times that we shared
There is no other man that can compare...

Bridge
You …know….I….still have a place in my heart…
For you baby…..
although others came my way and I chose to want to stray
But girl that was then, now I wish we can begin again

Refrain:
Starting over is what I want to do
I realized I made mistakes, let me prove my love to you
Starting over, baby can you find it in your heart
to give me another chance with you and make a brand new start.

Bridge 2 (duet):
Baby , I know that we did each other wrong
the selfishness can make you miss a love so strong
Though it took me awhile to see the error of my ways
I'm gonna be true to thee and I'll never go astray

Refrain:
Starting over is what I want to do
I realized I made mistakes, let me prove my love to you
Starting over, baby can you find it in your heart
to give me another chance with you and make a brand new start.

What Love Is
Lyrics and Music - D. McCollum ©Copyright 2002

Intro:
What Love Is
Of the Night
Oh I hold you babe
You Know you're a part, you're a part of me
What Love Is
I'd be gone
You know my love is strong yeah

Verse 1:
Look babe I’m forever
And I love you so
Thought you would always know
That I want to be
In a love
And I want to know are ya

Do you love me
For I don’t want to go
All you have to show
Is your love
For I love you
This I say
But if I have to go
Am I wrong

But now I wonder just who you are
Or what you want is it what I really need
Is it love or is it all that i've lost
Why we’re here
Oh just because
Do you love me?
Will you hold me?

Refrain
In the middle of the night
As I sweat and I hold you tight
Don’t you know you’re a part of me?
Don’t you know what love is?

Did you think that I’d be gone?
Cause I know my love ain't wrong
And you know you’re a part of me
Don’t you know what love is?

Uh I (repeat 4 times)

Verse2:
Everyone that knows saw you baby
And it seems, you know what I mean
When I saw you, I couldn't tell you
That I want to be, In love

Now I tell you now, Just let go
All night I loved you, at one time
All that you meant to me, I was too blind too weak
Don't you know that I know, It's a foolish heart.

For I wonder just who you are
Or what you want is it what I really need
Is it love or is it all that's lost
So be here
Not just the physical, not just the mental
But the heart my love
Just hold me

Refrain:
In the middle of the night
As I sweat and I hold you tight
Don’t you know you’re a part of me?
Don’t you know what love is?

Did you think that I’d be gone?
Cause I know my love is strong
And you know you’re a part of me
Don’t you know what love is?

Uh I (repeat 4 times)

For I wonder just who you are
Or what you want is it what I really need
Is it love or is it all that I lost
So be here
Not just the physical, not just the mental
But the heart my love
Just hold me

In the middle of the night
As I sweat and I hold you tight
Don’t you know you’re a part of me?
Don’t you know what love is?

Did you think that I’d be gone?
Cause I know my love is strong
And you know you’re a part of me
Don’t you know what love is?

Verse:1

You Saved your love me
We said we always be
But now as me goers by
We must remember

With all that we've been through
No matter what we do
but now
we must remember

I swear, I love you
I remember the time
when walked hand in hand and your love was all mine
And now what your are to me
Is true love Devine
Our love will last forever

Refrain
You must remember
Our hearts will always see
Until the time we just surrender
In time, we'll come see
Our love will always be
As long as we just remember

Verse 2:

My heart is true to thee
To you enternally
I'd stop the sun, I'd stop the sun
until you believed me
I've losted the words to say
Though I loved you many ways
to make forever, please believe me

When I swear, I love you
I remember the time
when walked hand in hand and your love was all mine
And now what your are to me
Is true love Devine
Our love will last forever

Refrain
You must remember
Our hearts will always see
Until the time we just surrender
In time, we'll come see
Our love will always be
As long as we just remember

On on, on, on.......
It's forever
eternally, just you and me.
