I love this movie.  And it is a Halloween movie I had to put it on this list.  And I had to end my 31 Days of Scary Movies on a good note!  This month has been the best month of my life!  I wouldn't trade it in for anything.  Thank you for everything!!!  I hoped you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Halloween
Director: John Carpenter
Stars: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis and Tony Moran
Rated: R
Released: 1978
Length: 91 Minutes


Synopsis:


A psychotic murderer institutionalized since childhood escapes and stalks a high school girl and her friends while his doctor chases him through the streets. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


Welcome to my all time favorite movie!!!  I can remember watching this movie the very first time.  I couldn't get enough.  I love the fact that you never see him kill someone.  You see the knife then the face of the victim.... that's it.   I love the fact that 80's scary movies did this.  I think that this effect is scarier then seeing the gore.  

If you haven't seen this movie....the original, not the remake...you must go and see it.  It in my book is the best scary movie out there.  It is worth your time!!!

How bad can this movie be....okay don't answer that.  But it really was a good movie.  Please give it a chance. :)

Paranormal Activity 2

Paranormal Activity 2
Director: Tod Williams
Stars: Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat and Molly Ephraim
Rated: R
Released: 2010
Length: 91 Minutes



Synopsis:


After experiencing what they think are a series of "break-ins", a family sets up security cameras around their home, only to realize that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


I <3 THESE MOVIES!!!! I really do love them.  I love how scared I get and how I can't sleep at night after I watch them.  To me that is a true scary movie!  A movie that you can't take your eyes off of but at the same time you can't watch either.  I have chills just thinking about it.


This movie is supposed to be from before the first one is filmed.  There is a family that is trying to document this part of their life because they don't want to miss a thing.  But while they are documenting this time in their life, they are to experience paranormal activity in their house.  This is not just any kind, this is extreme!!!!  The family in this movie is related to the family in the first movie.  And the third movie was just recently released in theaters.  I can't wait until I have time to go and see it!! :)

I hope you have a chance to watch all these movies.  But if you listen to anything that I have to say I hope you this is this......WATCH IT WITH SOMEONE!!!

Stars: Bradley Bates, Kimberly Lynn Campbell and Sergio Cantu
Rated: Not Rated
Released: 2009
Length: 102 Minutes



Synopsis:


When the Serial Rabbit, San Antonio's most feared murderer, embarks on a violent killing spree days before Christmas, both the police and a group of professional hitmen furiously attempt to hunt the brutal bunny down. This third blood-soaked installment of the Serial Rabbit horror series also stars Will Scoville as detective Harvey; Amanda Nutting as his partner, Maxine; and Chris Patrie as ruthless crime lord Bugsy. -Netflix-


My Thoughts:


This movie, as you can see, is not supposed to be scary.  Once in awhile I like to watch movies that they try to be scary, but turn out to be stupid.  Well I am sorry to tell you, this is one of those movies.  It actually hurt to finish this movie.  I really don't have much to say other then, please do not waste your time with this movie.  If you like movies that are like this then more power to you if you want to watch it.  My husband thought it was hilarious.  Me not so much.  Sorry....:( 


The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
By: Michelle Hodkin
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Pages: 452
Source: Bought for review, and book club



Goodreads Synopsis:



Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.

There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.

She's wrong. -Goodreads-



My Thoughts:


If you want a book that keeps you on your toes, and keeps you going in about one hundred different directions....this book is for you!  I don't even know where to begin telling you about this book.  How about I start by telling you that I love this book just as much as I love Wither!!!! I seriously can't wait until the next book comes out. *FALL 2012*!!!! I will be in line the day it comes out!!!

You meet this girl who really doesn't remember a couple days of her life.  All she knows is that she was with her best friends when they died.  THAT IS IT!!! I mean come one how great is that!!  I couldn't believe it.  But any who, her family moves to another state and she has to start all over...and there she meets Noah. Noah really helps her find out why she is here and what she needs in her life.  But there are always secrets, and there will always be secrets.  Secrets make the world go around!

Mara Dyer is bad ass.  She is probably one of the best characters I have ever read about in my life.  She doesn't put up with anything that she doesn't like.  She is what every 17 year old girl should be.  But she has one fear, she doesn't know what she is capable of doing.  

  I think it is funny that readers always want the lead male character.  Well in this book Noah, the lead male, is the bad boy that everyone wants but he doesn't want them.  See I have my Noah.  Noah reminds me a lot of my husband.  I think that is why I loved this character so much.  They both have the same sense of humor and they are both sarcastic. Ever scene with Noah in it reminded me of a memory of Seth and I.  I found this really odd because this never has happened to me before.


Oh Michelle Hodkin....you have really out done yourself.  This has to be one of the best books I have read all year so far!!  You are an amazing author!  The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is everything that I would want in a book and more.  I think this should be on every person's must read list!



My Rating:


I give this book 5 out of 5 stars....like it deserves!!!!

:)

31 Days of Scary Movies {26}

The Ward Poster

The Ward
Director: John Carpenter
Stars: Amber Heard, Mamie Gummer and Danielle Panabaker
Rated: R
Released: 2010
Length: 88 Minutes


Synopsis: 


A thriller centered on an institutionalized young woman who becomes terrorized by a ghost. -IMDB-




My Thoughts:


Personally I love John Carpenter.  I think that he is one of the greatest directors of all time.  He knows his stuff.  So when I saw that he directed this movie, I thought that this  movie couldn't be that bad.  It really wasn't.  I thought that he really did do a great job.  

The movie is about young women that are living in a mental hospital of sorts and they start to get haunted by a ghost.  The main character really doesn't remember much about how or why she is there.  But all she can think about is getting out. While she is here she meets a group of girls that will soon become some of her closes friends.  So she has to make a decision on whether or not to escape, or have the ghost win the battle.  


I think that if you want to watch a movie that really doesn't make you jump but keeps you wanting more, this is the movie for you!

Choose Poster


Choose
Director: Marcus Graves
Stars: Katheryn Winnick, Kevin Pollak and Nicholas Tucci
Rated: R
Released: 2011
Length: 100 Minutes


Synopsis:


A journalism student tracks a killer with the help of her detective father and a therapist. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


For a movie that I just heard about....from Netflix....it really wasn't that bad.  I wasn't sure if it was going to put me to sleep or keep me on the edge of my seat.  And it did just that.....well keep me on the edge of my seat :)  

The movie is about a girl that is in college that starts getting pretty much stocked by this guy that is going around killing people.  But he is giving them a choice, a choice on how they want to die.  Its kind of creepy if you ask me.  But other then that it was a good movie.  Defiantly a movie that I would recommend if you want to see a scary movie, that involves serial killers and that is a new movie.

Halloween: Resurrection Poster



Halloween Resurrection
Director: Rick Rosenthal
Stars: Jamie Lee Curtis, Busta Rhymes and Brad Loree
Rated: R
Released: 2002
Length: 94 Minutes


Synopsis:


When a group of teens win a contest to spend a night in Michael Myers' childhood home to be broadcast live on the internet, they believe they are in for a little fun and some free publicity. But, things go frightfully wrong and the game turns into a struggle to make it out of the house alive. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


If you could go into the home of a serial killer would you?  I myself would...lol.  Just because I am crazy like that.  I think that I would like to walk through houses with a history like this.  But would you?  Well in this movie 6 teenagers are given that chance.  They are picked for a reality TV show that is going to be filmed in Micheal Meyers childhood home.  Now with me being a huge Micheal Meyers fan I would love this.  :)

I think that if you want a movie that really isn't scary but more funny then anything, this is the movie for you.  Now I really don't like my horror movies to have more humor then horror in them.  I will complain, complain, complain about it.  But....its Micheal Meyers!!! My all time favorite serial killer!!!! So I pushed through the stupidness of this movie because of him....I am such a good fan!!!  :)  Please take my word for it.  If you want a good scary movie that involves Micheal Meyers, watch the original Halloween.

Paranormal Activity Poster


Paranormal Activity
Director: Oren Peli
Stars: Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat and Mark Fredrichs
Rated: R
Released: 2007
Length: 86 Minutes


Synopsis:


After moving into a suburban home, a couple becomes increasingly disturbed by a nightly demonic presence. -IMDB-


My Thoughts: 


Oh this movie....

Okay so it takes a lot for a movie to get me really scared.  I can say that the movie gave me chills or kept me on the edge of the seat, but its rare that a movie scares me.  This movie scares me.  When I first saw this movie it was in the theater.  We went and saw the last movie of the night, that was the wrong thing to do.  When we got home I couldn't fall asleep.  At last when I did I woke up at 3 AM and just sat there looking at my door.  I know I am crazy.

But I decided to rewatch it to see if it still scared me.  Well guess what, it did.  I couldn't sleep. I sat in bed scared out of my mind and couldn't do anything.  I couldn't believe it.  This movie really does something and it really scared people.  

The movie is filmed in the characters point of view.  It is a home camera that films everything.  There is this young couple that are experiencing a paranormal force.  At first they think it is all fun and games....but by the end of the week its not so fun anymore.  

If you want a good scary movie that has you thinking about the movie weeks after you see it.  You must see this.  You will never think of another scary movie again.

Mask Maker

Mask Maker
Director: Griff Furst
Stars: Nikki Deloach, Stephen Colletti and Anabella Casanova
Rated: R
Released: 2010
Length: 89 Minutes


Synopsis: 


There's a reason the 19th-century plantation house Evan Reynolds (Stephen Colletti) bought for his fiancée came cheap. Too bad neither he nor his bride-to-be discover it until their friends -- whom they've invited to the manse to celebrate -- begin to drop dead. Too late for their pals, but perhaps in time to save themselves, the couple learns that past residents are still hanging around in this horror fest co-starring Treat Williams. -Netflix-


My Thoughts:


So there is this young couple that think that have everything figured out.  They know they are going to be together, they know they love each other, and they know they are going to spend the rest of their lives together.  So as a birthday gift, the boyfriend buys the girlfriend a house....yes a house.  He gets it for a really great price that he could not pass up.  But there is a reason the house was so cheap and it came with some really awesome stuff...there is a serial killer living there and he makes masks with your face. 

I am not going to lie...this movie was not that bad.  I thought it was going to be a joke but in the long run it actually was a decent movie.  It made me jump a few times, but I mostly intrigued by the back story.  I also that it was really neat how they tied everything together.  I think that if you want a movie that has a really cool twist at the end, this movie is for you!!

The Possession of David O'Reilly Poster

The Possession of David O'Reilly
Directors: Andrew Cull, Steve Isles
Stars: Giles Alderson, Francesca Fowler and Paul McGuinness
Rated: Unrated
Released: 2010
Length: 87 Minutes


Synopsis:


A supernatural shockumentary about a demonic presence in a young couple's home in London. -IMDB-


My Thoughts:


So when I was a kid I went with my older sister to see The Blair Witch Project at out drive in...yes I grew up in a town that has a drive in!!  It was the coolest thing ever.  Well not seeing The Blair Witch Project when you are 11 at a drive in.  But because of this experience, I now love movies like this one.  I love movies that are filmed like the characters are filming them.  I think it makes it more real.  But do I like this movie....no.  This movie was so hard to watch.  I was really hoping that it would be good...it really was a disappointment.  It could of have been a really great movie.

You meet a young couple who allows their friend to move in with them for awhile.  But while he is staying there he starts to see a demon.  At first he doesn't know that it is a demon, he thinks that he is seeing things.  And his friends think that he is starting to go crazy a little bit.  But he is persistent on what he sees.  And soon they all will find out exactly what he sees and what is going on in his mind.

If you like movies like this you should really give it a chance, you may really like it.

Poltergeist III Poster

Poltergeist 3
Director: Gary Sherman
Stars: Heather O'Rourke, Tom Skerritt and Nancy Allen
Rated: PG-13
Released: 1988
Length: 98 Minutes


Synopsis: 


Carol Anne is staying with her aunt in a highrise building, and the supernatural forces that have haunted her previously follow her there. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


I am all for movie series or movie trilogies.  Sometimes they are the best movies that you could ever watch.  Like in this series of movies, the third movie is always better then the second.  I really can't think of a movie that the second movie is better then the third....hmmm...anyway trilogies rock!


Carol Anne is back!  And so are the forces that want her are back too.  She is now living in Chicago with her mom's sister.  While there she starts seeing the creepy old man again.  And again people are thinking that she is crazy.  But is she really going crazy, or is her family going crazy because they are seeing things.  You never really now.


I think that this whole series of movies are some really great movies.  I mean come on a little girl that is being stalked by a poltergeist.  It is amazing!  I really recommend that if you haven't seen any of these movies that you see them as soon as you can.  They will change your life!

Shutter Island Poster


Shutter Island
Director: Martin Scorsese
Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Mortimer and Mark Ruffalo
Rated: R
Released: 2010
Length: 138 Minutes


Synopsis: 

Drama set in 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding nearby. -IMDB-


My Thoughts:


Close your eyes.  Imagine yourself on a boat, you can hear the waves, you can feel the water hitting you and  in the face, and you can smell the ocean.  You have no idea where you are going but when you open your eyes all  you see is a island in the distance with a huge prison like building.  You find out that it is a mental intuition and you are there to investigation a murder. You don't know anything about what is going on but that you were brought in to help find out what happened.


I really liked this movie.  I am a sucker for suspenseful movies that keep you on edge of what is happening.  To me those are the best movies that have ever been made....this is one of those movies.  You really don't know much about the characters at first, but by the end of the movie you know their whole life story. This movie is purely epic.  If you haven't watched it you need to....like now...

GLEE SONG OF THE WEEK {19}

So I first of all have to tell you all how sad I am that Glee won't be back on until November 1st. :( But I have been watching my seasons at home so I guess that it isn't that bad....:/  But I can not wait until it returns...my Tuesdays haven't been the same...



So this week I have been thinking long and hard about a song that I could use for Glee song of the week.  And guess what....I have no idea????

So I am picking a song from this past new episode....

I hope you enjoy:)





oh and you HAVE to see this...

Poltergeist 2
Director: Brian Gibson
Stars: JoBeth Williams, Craig T. Nelson and Heather O'Rourke
Rated: PG-13
Released: 1986
Length: 91 Minutes


Synopsis: 

The Freeling family have a new house, but their troubles with supernatural forces don't seem to be over. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


I totally forgot how much I love 80s horror movies.  Because of this movie right here.  I remember watching it when I was little, but when I saw the cover on Netflix I couldn't remember if I had have watched before....so I had too. :)  It was one of the funniest scary movies that I have seen in awhile.  I guess I am in some sort of rut.  First it was Scream 3 and now this.  I hope a get a really scary movie some sometime soon. :(  

So in the first poltergeist you meet a family whose house is haunted by many spirits and they don't know why or how.  They come to find out the house that they are living in was built on a cemetery.  And they bodies that the house was built on was haunting the house.  In this movie, it is sometime after they left the house and they are trying to get their lives back in order....but the spirits don't want that to happen.

The movie has a really great story and it could really awesome.  But again, it was made in the 80s so they really didn't have a lot to work with.  Now don't get me wrong, I am sucker for 80s scary movies.  They are some of the best horror movies out there.  But sometimes they are also the worst horror movies out there.  Poltergeist 2 is one of the movies that is right stuck in the middle.  But I think that you should give it a chance.  You never know...you may fall in love with the creepy old man :)


Happy Birthday to me????....and a Giveaway:)

Hello followers...I would have never thought this day would ever come....and here we are.  Today is my 1 year blogversary...:)  So much has happened this year that I  really don't know where to begin.  Not many people know this, but I first started this blog to go with a book club that I tried to get up and running.  The first book that we read was Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.  I really didn't work out that well.  So I came to a quick conclusion that I needed to do something else.  So I became a blogger.  It kind of happened over night and I really didn't know how it would turn out.  But I am really glad that I did.  It was one of the best things that I could have ever done.  I have met some of the best people that I could have ever asked for.

I have been to some awesome signings this past year and I have met some really great authors.  I would not trade anything that has happened this past year in for anything....well maybe a million dollars :)

I wouldn't trade in any of the bloggers I have met this past year.  You guys have been the best.  You have always been there to answer questions I have had and you have always been there for anything that I need.  Thank you!! You mean more to me than you know. :)





The one thing that has made this year a lot easier is how supportive my husband has been.  He was one of best friends in high school and now we are married!! What more can I ask for???  He has always been there for anything that I need for blogging and this would not be here if it wasn't for him pushing me to continue! So thank you Seth!  Thanks for everything that you have done for me!  You are the best!


Well now we are here for the one thing that everyone has been looking for....the GIVEAWAY!!!

LOL.  I am giving away 2 books!

Scream 3 Poster

Scream 3
Director: Wes Craven
Stars: David Arquette, Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox
Rated: R
Released: 2000
Length: 116 Minutes


Synopsis:

Ghostface pays Sidney and her friends a third visit while they visit the set of "Stab 3", the third movie based upon the Woodsboro murders. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


This is defiantly not my favorite movie of the series.  I was kind of disappointed with the movie but it was defiantly a fun movie to watch.  This movie had a lot of humor in it.  When I am watching a scary movie, humor is the last thing that I want in it. I want to be sitting in the corner of the couch with a blanket on me and scared to even go into the next room.  This movie did not do that.  Now I am not saying this movie was bad or anything, because it actually was very good.  I just really hated all the humor in it.

The movie starts off where 2 left off.  But this time, the characters are filming "Stab 3".  The Stab movies are scary movies that Hollywood is making about the true murders that happened years ago.  And guess what....Ghostface is back and he is killing the character one by one in the order that they are getting killed in the movie.  No one is safe, and they are not sure who is next because there are 3 different scripts....


In my mind this is genius because it really hasn't been done before.  In all of the Scream movies my favorite part is when they are talking about sequels and trilogies.  You have a inside look in film making and what directors have to compete with in making a movie.  I really love every one of these movie...they are my favorite!!!!

Scream

Scream
Director: Wes Craven
Stars: Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette
Rated: R
Released: 1996
Length: 103 Minutes


Synopsis:


A killer known as "ghost face" begins killing off teenagers, and as the body count begins rising, one girl and her friends find themselves contemplating the "Rules" of horror films as they find themselves living in a real-life one. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


So the movie that started it all.  The movie that made me fall in love with a killer named "ghost face". In my opinion the first movie in a series is always the movie you mostly remember in that series.  I can remember where I saw the first movie, who went with me, and how I felt when ghost face killed poor Casey Becker.  

This movie is one of the best scary movies that I have seen in a long time.  It has everything that a scary movie should have.  It has suspense, action, and mystery.  Everything that I like. :) You really feel for the lead character and you don't want anything to happen to her.  You want her to fight for her life.  

Everyone should give this movie chance.  Not only this movie, this whole complete series.  It is amazing!!!

Forget Me Not
Director: Tyler Oliver
Stars: Carly Schroeder, Cody Linley and Brie Gabrielle
Rated: R
Released: 2009
Length: 103 Minutes


Synopsis:


It's graduation weekend, and Sandy Channing, the popular class president of her small-town high school, should be enjoying the time of her life. But when her friends start disappearing, Sandy discovers they have unwittingly awakened the vengeful spirit of a girl they wronged long ago. Fighting for her sanity, Sandy must unlock a dark secret from her own past before it's too late. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:

Picture this...its the best day of your life.  You finally have done the one thing that you have thought would never happen.  You graduated!  This is supposed to be the best day of your life.  One of the days that you will never forget.  And what happens....your friends are being killed one by one.  

I thought that this movie was a good movie.  It really had a good story to it.  It kept you wanting more and wanting to know what was going to happen next.  What kept me into the movie was the fact that once one of the main characters friends died, they became one of the creatures that came after the next person.  I thought that that was a really cool feature for the movie.  I have seen a lot of movies in my time and that has never been done that I have seen.  

The one thing that I can complain about is the ending...it really didn't do justice to the movie.  If they could change one thing it would the ending.  But it is defiantly a movie that should be watched.  :)

If you a want a movie that keeps you and the edge of your seat from the very first scene, this movie is for you.  I heard mixed reviews about this movie so I put it on hold to watch.  Boy was I wrong to do that.  This movie was more a psychological thriller then anything.  But sometimes those are the best scary movies out there.  

You meet a social worker that gets really involved in this one case.  The case is about a girl that is treated really badly by her parents.  They basically want their child dead and the social worker doing  her job doesn't understand why.  So the girl gets taken away from her parents and comes and lives with her.  But the girl is not everything that she seems to be.  

If I have to make a list of my top 50 horror films this would defiantly be on the list.

Hello again...I can't believe that it is Friday all ready...where did this week go?  Don't get me wrong I love that it is Friday it is my favorite day of the week!!!  And today I am on a journey to Naperville Illinois for the Silence Tour!!!  I can't wait to meet Becca Fitzpatrick!   And I can't wait to go home and start reading Silence!  

Also on Sunday I am going back to Naperville to go to the Dark Days Tour!!! I went to the one in Lansing and there I met some really cool authors.  I know this is not going to be any different. :)

But that is not why we are here...we are here for the one question we are all here for...


Friday, Oct. 14th -Show & Tell: Where do you grab a book and get lost in it? Show us your favorite spot you like to read at.


Oh where to begin...I have many places I love to read....one is on the carpet at work while the kids take there nap...:) lol I know that is crazy but it really is awesome just to sit on the carpet and read...

I do have one place that I call home when I am at home.  I love my couch.  It is my all time favorite place in the house other then my bed. :)

31 Days of Scary Movies {13}


Death of a Ghost Hunter
Director: Sean Tretta
Stars: Cordon Clark, April Hinojosa and Davina Joy
Rated: Not Rated
Release: 2007
Length: 107 Minutes


Synopsis:


Renowned "ghost hunter", Carter Simms is paid to conduct a paranormal investigation of a supposedly haunted house. Along with a cameraman, a reporter, and a spiritual advocate, she embarks on a three night journey into terror. -IMDB-



My Thoughts:


This movie is loosely based on a true store that happened a few years ago.  It is about a ghost hunter that is brought into a house that is haunted by its previous owners.  They find a lot of evidence in that house that allows them to confirm that the house is indeed haunted.  They show evidence that no one has ever seen before.  

This movie was not at all bad.  I kept on pushing this movie back because I thought that it was going to be terrible, but it was actually really good.  At first, when I started watching the movie, I thought that is was just a made up story that was meant to scare people.  Then I read that the back story happened for the most part.  I thought that was really cool.  I love when scary movies are based on true events.  It makes them that much better.  :)

31 Days of Scary Movies {12}




Scream 4
Director: Wes Craven
Stars: Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette
Rated: R
Release: 2011
Length: 111 Minutes



Synopsis: 


Ten years have passed, and Sidney Prescott, who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the Ghostface Killer. -IMDB-


My Thoughts:


I love the Scream series!!!!  I remember watching the very first movie the day that it came out in theaters. (I have weird parents)  From that moment I was hooked.   Some people think that these movies were not that great, but I totally disagree.  These movies are some of the best scary movies in the past 10 years. 


With this movie it is 10 years past the first killings and now they are back and in full swing.  But there is a twist....Ghostface does not want her dead...yet...


This movie has a lot more violence in it.  I love older scary movies because you really didn't see the killings.  you saw the knife and then you heard a scream.  I love that about the scary movies.  The first scream movie did this and I know that is why I loved it so much!  In Scream 4, things are not like that.  You see everything...so prepare yourself.  Other than that this is probably one of my favorite movies in this series.  The movie keeps you on your toes and you really don't know who is going to be the killer and who is going to survive.


YOU MUST GO AND SEE THIS!!! NOW!!

 Time of My Life- Dirty Dancing






Boy: Now I've had the time of my life
No I never felt like this before
Yes I swear it's the truth
and I owe it all to you

Girl: 'Cause I've had the time of my life
and I owe it all to you

Boy: I've been waiting for so long
Now I've finally found someone
To stand by me

Girl: We saw the writing on the wall
As we felt this magical fantasy

Both: Now with passion in our eyes
There's no way we could disguise it secretly
So we take each other's hand
'Cause we seem to understand the urgency

Boy: just remember

Girl: You're the one thing

Boy: I can't get enough of

Girl: So I'll tell you something

Both:This could be love because

(CHORUS)
Both: I've had the time of my life
No I never felt this way before
Yes I swear it's the truth
And I owe it all to you
'Cause I've had the time of my life
And I've searched through every open door
'Til I found the truth
And I owe it all to you

Girl: With my body and soul
I want you more than you'll ever know

Boy: So we'll just let it go
Don't be afraid to lose control

Girl: Yes I know whats on your mind
When you say:
"Stay with me tonight."

Boy: Just remember
You're the one thing

Girl: I can't get enough of

Boy: So I'll tell you something

Both: This could be love because

(CHORUS)
Both: 'Cause I had the time of my life
No I've never felt this way before
Yes I swear it's the truth
And I owe it all to you
'Cause I've had the time of my life
And I've searched through every open door
Till I found the truth
and I owe it all to you

*Instrumental*

Boy: Now I've had the time of my life
No I never felt this way before

(Girl: Never Felt this way)

Boy: Yes I swear it's the truth
and I owe it all to you

Both: 'Cause I had the time of my life
And I've searched through every open door
Till I've found the truth
and I owe it all to you

Both: "cause I've had the time of my life
No I've never felt this way before
Yes I swear it's the truth
And I owe it all to you
