    Julia

    Here are some bits of lyrics you might beable to use: <p> 1. I walked up to you and you turned me away. I wanted something more than just that smile. I knew you better than that baby, no matter what you say. Will you love me? Will you want even after that display? Do you know who I am? Did you even understand?<p> 2. I was more than able to say to you hey. I am more than able to just smile then turn away. I am more--- than able to just ignore the way you smile. You stare at me everytime I'm shy. You know I am able to love you babe. I know you know I'm able. <p> 3. No matter who you say you are. No matter who you say I am. I know your more than what I see in your face. I know I love you,but are you mine? I love you to death,but are you even alive? <p> Here are the title choices fir the lyrics. Choose on and I will write the song: <p> 1. Do you Love Me?, Am I yours?, Don't Turn Me Away <p> 2. More Than Able,I am More, I Love You More <p> 3. No Matter What,I Know You Better, Are You Mine? <p> Thanks!~Julia
