lyrics

Over My Shoulder

I remember fifty years ago
In a little white dress-
I was ready – I was set – you know
I remember living out my fantasy
And then suddenly
It became my destiny
I did not know
How my life would go
Maybe too high
Maybe too low
somewhere in between
At just thirteen
All I needed to know was right there
Over My Shoulder
Look at me standing there
I’ve got so much to share
Oh Over My Shoulder
They said she’s got a voice
And I knew I’d made my choice
Looking over my shoulder
I see I can carry on

LIANNA
I remember first gazing in her eyes
She was a legend
And now I realize
She was a lady - even at thirteen
And she can show me, show me how to find my dream
I do not know how my life will go
Maybe too high
Maybe too low
Or somewhere in between
At just thirteen
Now all I need to know is right there
Over My Shoulder
This girl has found her voice
And I know I've made my choice
I’m Looking over My Shoulder
Is that me standing there?
I’ve got a song to share
Looking over My Shoulder
I know I can carry on

LIANNA
Oh – I’m inspired by you
PATTI
Oh – I’m inspired too
LIANNA
How can I ever thank you?
PATTI
When I hear you singing, -- girl I know how you feel
LIANNA
And when I hear you singing, I know how you feel
PATTI AND LIANNA
Looking Over My Shoulder
Now my music can carry on
We will carry on
