"Do you and Chris have a particular method of remembering your lyric/melody ideas?"

"Perfect question!"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Where do you get your song ideas, and has there been an unusual source? I know some of mine have come from a tv commercial or a Hallmark movie, or even something so mundane as a road sign. Lol."

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"We will address this! Good question for those interested in writing to pitch."

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Do you target a specific artist with your songs or does your publisher decide who to send them to? For instance, when you’re working on something do you say to yourself, “This would be a perfect match for Tim McGraw”? Etc."

ImpossibleKings commented on kayly's lyric:

"Love the 1st part of this Kayly! Thinking we want to avoid using the word dream(s) as we ended the chorus with it."

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"I see your soul, it’s stronger than your doubt / if dreams were gold you’d own the world and turn it inside out"

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"I like this Kayly, but one thought here... what is he going to tell her since the next thing we hear is “missing things”... I’m curious as to what your creative mind can come up with to bridge your sweet thoughts here with the next chorus lyric? This last line goes right into it. "

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Pull you to me close Tell you while I can"

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"I am thinking a better way to say the first line is “pull you in close “ or “pull you in real close”. The “pull you to me” seems clunky to my ear. I think real dialogue might be “ pull you over to me”. Or “pull you into me” Know what I mean? But would a son actually pull his mother in close? Maybe.. but I don’t know. ?
And the next line might want to be something that can resolve into the chorus which starts out as “missing things”. For an example... to help you at the very end.. as I begin a life of “missing things”. This isn’t right and is too wordy but it’s just an idea of writing INTO a chorus. Let me know if you have questions! ❤️"

Lyric by kayly:

"How do I let a treasure go"

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"Yeah this kind of thing is what I'm looking for! Things that anyone could plug their own parent into and it becomes universal."

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"I miss the light in your smile/ the one that’s nearly erased/ I miss the joy in your eyes/ before it faded away/ yesterday, but in my heart it stays, always"

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"Kayly. you write with a lot of imagery! Kudos for that! I always am able to picture what you write. A while back you wrote "the joy in your eyes" and my mind finished that off with "before it faded away" or something like that. I'd love for you to give me less specific things about the mother which made her unique... but more universal emotional thoughts that most of us can plug in our own mother to those thoughts. Most people caring for an Alzheimer's parent would probably relate to the joy in their eyes fading... stuff like that. Stuff that is super emotional. I'm challengin you because you are a really good writer!

"

Lyric by kayly:

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"I remember me hitting that one ball right out of the park / you were shouting my name, proud of me making my mark"

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"I like this image. I think you could take the “came back with cookies and milk” to say what letting go of that seat did for him. Ie.. (this isn’t right but) “you let go of the seat shouting to me to trust myself”. I feel like you e given the listener great images to picture and then the last part gives you an emotion that he will also miss about her or her advice "

"I like this idea but I can see the mother saying this for the chorus, but could the son? Tricky"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"I wanna be me again, I wanna go back to the place that my mind has erased cause it’s home to me"

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"Oh I see now. They would both be longing for “home” in different ways. Maybe that’s an idea... I wonder if it could be simply that he regrets not being there enough or feels he was taking his mom for granted and now he just is missing all of it? If we were in
a room together this is the kind of back and forth that we’d be doing. Hmmm"

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"These are all good thoughts! The son might be able to say that he hides his sadness but we know she was sitting on the bed crying. I like “but I know I can’t stop what life brings”!"

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"I love that first part.. “ it was you and your boy with his new Christmas toy”...
That’s so good because I can totally picture it ( if we could name the toy, even better but then we’d have to lose Xmas.... and toy is a great internal rhyme with boy) but It would be so cool if the second half could say something About that boy being “me”(like you’ve kind of done) but maybe show us in what way her mind needs to be clear... is she saying remind me of your name.. or something like that?
This could be really cool"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"It was you and your boy, with his new Christmas toys, good years / you forgot he was me, you would not even sleep, til your mind was clear, cause you’re….."

Lyric by kayly:

"It was you and your boy, with his new Christmas toys, good years / you forgot he was me, you would not even sleep, til your mind was clear, cause you’re….."

jaynesachs commented on kayly's lyric:

"Ahhh... he is admitting that he’s been lying to her for a long time. So she’s been “missing things” like the fact that he’s been lying. If we weren’t trying to write a country pitch, that could be cool.! The thing about this genre is artists are hesitant in the current genre to admit something that would make them seem less than good. It can happen and maybe Chris Stapleton or Morgan Walley could get away with it if it was their exact story that they want to work through via song, but for the most part artists don’t go for a storyline that paints them as really bad to their woman or in general. I had a big learning curve on that when I started writing In this genre."

"Love how "mistaken" lands at the end of line 2. I'd play around with saying

"I could show you how
Maybe you're mistaken"

then I'd write 5 more first lines with that second line...stretching out past what you have is a great trick for getting even better stuff!

another one...notice how I grow the story with this opening:

But maybe you're mistaken"

But what if you're mistaken

But I know you're mistaken

and on and on!! "

"I could show you how / you are so mistaken / say out loud / you can’t be right / I care for you / and want you here in my life / but I’m never gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"great first line and like second line but if you notice the accent is on the first syllable over the melody on "sink in" so that when you sing it is sounds more like "sinkin" ....when you would speak sink in the accent would be on "in" in normal speech...so it weakens the line to stretch the seams like that...."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"LOVE the "might as well" idea...especially starting second line. what could the ending of that be that's not an "I" vowel so we don't have 4 in a row?"

Carry the mirror with you, remember the words I give you
Tel me that you’ll try There’s so many reasons why Together you and I can raise the bar
So, free your faith, find the way, you know it’s not that far
So grab that magic, pull it close, watch what happens now / suddenly you’re soaring free, from sadness and its doubt
Like that familiar melody that gives you peace of mind / Let hope surround your point of view and write your own next line
Don’t give up, push your luck, find a four-leaf clover / when life gets in the way, just move it on over
Take that picture with you, and frame it in your mind / all the possibilities are painted there to find
I see your soul, it’s stronger than your doubt / I’m here to show you someone cares, that’s what life’s all about
I see your soul, it’s stronger than your doubt / if dreams were gold you’d own the world and turn it inside out
The chance you take has been there all along / the dance of faith moves mountains when you find where you belong
I see your eyes, their vision shining through / you’ve realized the light in them brings out the best in you
Sometimes life’s a vacant sign and so we dream
Let’s exchange the rain for the rhythm of hope and love
When you think you can’t do another day / your song will say, there is a way
What you can imagine can be real
Everything I say is true, it’s up to you, to find your faith
If you let me, I’ll lift you up / If you believe me, that’s enough
What matters now is that your music’s heard/ break the chains of silence even if it’s just one word
I know you well, you’ve always worked alone / all by yourself, you’ve always tried to fix things on your own
You hide the pain, so no one gets too close / inside your rain the music plays and softly sends you hope
I hear your heart, it’s louder than your smile / I’m here to start the song in there that’s been lost for a while
Can you give me a reason, for staying down and out/ when you have a new season, coming your way, crushing your doubt
It’s the talk of the town, that you’re feeling down, just know it’s temporary/ you’re gonna rewrite your story, days of grace and glory, they’re coming back like February
When I see you down, if it’s in my power/gonna lift you up, every hour, gonna watch you fly
I can see you’re feeling not like you, who you are has never been so blue / so I’m sending you a piece of joy or two, my friend
I get it, you don’t want to be here anymore / you said it, wish you could find the life you had before
You don’t hear the music anymore, you’re not even answering your door
Waking up to the same day, over and over it’s here / life gets stuck in the same place, trying to push out the fear
Do you and Chris have a particular method of remembering your lyric/melody ideas?
Where do you get your song ideas, and has there been an unusual source? I know some of mine have come from a tv commercial or a Hallmark movie, or even something so mundane as a road sign. Lol.
And to follow up on Keith’s last question, does Chris sometimes contribute to the lyrics as well as the melody?
Do you target a specific artist with your songs or does your publisher decide who to send them to? For instance, when you’re working on something do you say to yourself, “This would be a perfect match for Tim McGraw”? Etc.
One thing we both know, in that last grain of sand, you’ll find all the …..missing things
‘Cause this house is still a home, that you’ve built to stand, no matter how we’re missing things
And talk about what we both Still understand Cause we’ll be … missing things
What matters now I know / is I have this chance / not to be…missing things ….it doesn’t have to be everything / ‘cause
Find joy in what you still know / while I have the chance / ‘cause soon I’ll be ….
Just a few more of those Real you moments and…. I’ll have to face missing things
And wait til you are you While I’ve got the chance I don’t wanna keep…missing things
I’m losing all I know But all I understand Is I’ll forever be…..missing things
And when angels take you home / to that promised land I’ll forever be….(missing things)
God is in control / and in His perfect plan…..I’ll be (missing things)
I won’t leave you alone / but Mom, when you’re gone…..I’ll be forever…(missing things)
This window soon will close And never open again
And hold to heaven’s hope That you’ll be you again
And feel those memories Cause in my heart again
Say what matters most And hope you understand
Pull you to me close Tell you while I can
Mom, I love you so Please understand
Cause someday soon time will run out
So, I’m making each minute count
I’d bring back the joy in your eyes
I’d give everything I owned
Please, angels, will you come through
Whatever it takes, I’ll do
A little more losing each day
I blinked and the years flew by
I’m wishing for more yesterdays
There’s so much I haven’t said
If angels came through somehow
If a miracle happened right now
Those moments when you’re still you
How do I let you go
Why can’t this just be a bad dream
How do I let a treasure go
If tomorrow takes everything
So, I’m bargaining with You, God
My home has always been you
I’m thankful for all those years
I miss the light in your smile/ the one that’s nearly erased/ I miss the joy in your eyes/ before it faded away/ yesterday, but in my heart it stays, always
Like your sweet poker face, when you’ve got a winning hand/ your habit of twisting your gold wedding band, that way/ wish I could keep yesterday, always
How you covered your eyes, and said a punch line too soon/ how you turned every head, when your laugh filled the room/ little things, like singing every song you knew, in tune
The blush on your face when a compliment’s paid, the way you say grace on Thanksgiving Day, you’re the glue, who’s held me my lifetime through, it’s you
I miss the grace in your walk, that joy in your eyes/ the faith when you talk, of family ties, no goodbyes/ but still I just want more time, more time
Missing talking ‘bout days When you were a girl And the stars in your gaze Just watching this world as it turns Oh, how it’s really hurting me
I miss you being you You always knew what to do Your good advice in my ear I’m missing things that might all disappear God, please keep Mom right here, With me
I can still see you waving as I got on the school bus at dawn/ and sitting on the porch steps, always there when I got home
I remember you there for the touchdowns and home runs I made/ from grade school to grad, and tossing my cap that last day
I remember me learning to read by the time I was five/ just the sound of your voice made all those books come alive
I remember me racing down fields that lit up the sky / you’d shout from the stands, we loved those Friday night lights
I remember me learning to ride that blue bike downhill/ you let go of the seat, and trusting myself became real
I remember the summers and castles we built in the sand/ you watched as the waves pushed them away from your hands
I remember my birthdays, balloons and homemade cakes and cards/ where you wrote I love you, more than the sun and the stars
I remember me hitting that one ball right out of the park / you were shouting my name, proud of me making my mark
I remember me learning to ride that blue bike downhill / you let go of the seat, came back with cookies and milk
The young me was blessed, cared for by the best of moms / had all that I needed and much more where that came from
I remember me smiling every time you would rescue this kid
I remember me hiding up under the covers at ten
More than a photograph it seems, I’m staying awake cause my heart starts to ache when it sees memories
And if tomorrow takes everything, I wanna be here at home, don’t wanna be alone, but I know I can’t stop what life brings
And if tomorrow takes everything, the love in my heart holds on tight, that’s the part of tonight that won’t leave
Don’t know how to fix things, will all these little things turn into bigger things and take away everything
And devastation’s what that brings, you know I’m mad, and I’m sad, and I’m scared and don’t know what this means
I wanna be me again, I wanna go back to the place that my mind has erased cause it’s home to me
Everyday is stealing dreams / and I’m afraid that tomorrow might break just like our old porch swing
How we were lives in my dreams / my heart is breaking, my mind’s so afraid, and I’m stuck in between
And it’s a lonely place to lean/ I feel lost, I feel scared, but so glad you’re still there with me
It’s tearing my heart apart at the seams/ can’t hide my sadness inside, but I know I can’t stop what life brings
It’s tearing my heart apart at the seams/ I hide the sadness inside, but I know I can’t stop what life brings
I’m losing memories / little pieces erased, the smile on your face, tomorrow might take everything
Feels like I’m lost in a dream / yesterday’s gone, I’m already alone, and the fear is what stings
Things that used to make my heart sing / I’d love to rewind my life and fly back there where I had some wings
It was you and a boy, with his new Christmas toys and trains / You forgot it was me, said ya just couldn’t sleep til ya knew his name, so I told you my name
It was you and your boy, with his new Christmas toys, good years / you forgot he was me, you would not even sleep, til your mind was clear, cause you’re…..
It’s a sweet memory of the whole family right here / the way we were then, before it would end, and one thing is clear, I’m…….
The thing is, I’m lying, there was a million of them
We’d fought over fighting, bought into hiding what’s real
Wish I could rewind, give you more me time again
Sleepless, with coffee and pictures spread out on the bed
The thunder and lightning and the fight that we’d never win
Harsh words kept flying, put me on the sofa again
You shoved me away, your frown said my chances were slim
And hugging your pillow while I went out on a limb
You tried to hide it, but moonlight just wasn’t that dim
There’s no denying, knew you’d been dreamin’ ‘bout him
Straight from our hearts, the truth can be found, in the American underground / wait for this part, we pass it on down, in the American underground
Real will survive if everyone’s down, for the American underground/ truth stays alive if all sing its sound, in the American underground
The life we now live let’s freedom abound in the American underground / with time to forgive as truth takes a bow in the American underground
It’s work, but we don’t mind it, we’ll face our enemy/ we’ll chase truth til we find it, reclaim reality
Recognizing real, we are racing toward the light/ no matter what we feel, we are chasing what is right
Every one of us are spokes restoring hope and health, from underground, truth is our wealth
Like books are useless left upon a shelf, it’s you and me, we have the key
We’ll spin revolutions round and round like carousels, and time will tell
We need warriors working, keeping truth alive and well, nothing else
There’s unity on restoration road, it’s how we roll, down under here
We’ll give the lies no leverage til only truth is left, we’ll come back, full circle
We’ll find the love within us, take our hearts down off the shelf, truth needs us
All of us together can unite the right and left, if love leads us
Let’s stand for reliable and fair / transparency should echo through the air
We’ll build more bold bridges than we burn/ we’ll fill our fountains full of what we learn
If all media could just agree/ leave bias out, report news honestly
We’ll press for accountability/ from fake news that can risk democracy
A change in our system’s overdue / from journalism to the oval room
A perfect pick in battles, this one we must choose /what’s real should not be rattled, the truth should never lose
Gathering a nation, ready for the fight / we’ll force disinformation out into the light
First to fight the fables, truth will strike the match / but liars won’t be able to set fire to the facts
We’re sending invitations, to spreaders of false news / Dear disinformation, we’re quite fed up with you
Everywhere we listen, thunder fills the land / defending words of wisdom, truth takes full command
It’s work but we don’t mind it, we’ll face our enemy / we’ll chase truth til we find it, reclaim reality
How will we win this war that surrounds/ the American underground
Some tell the lies and some sell the sound / in the American underground
Faith in a fable fuels the scam / in the American underground
Lights, camera, fiction, mountains of sham/ in the American underground
Heads in the sand make castles fall down/ in the American underground
The battle is real but real’s tied and bound/ in the American underground
Lies only live if they are allowed/ in the American underground
The Post, the Times, the Tribune, journalism at its best/ lately there’s the issue, can their truth withstand the test
Deflect and pass the buck here, a trending strategy/ before you know, you’re stuck here, a lie is in the lead
Media can spin it, any way they please/ motives take a minute, to figure out with ease
Rivers full of rumors, race around the world / from Twitter to YouTubers, no wisdom in their pearls
If everything’s a fable, what can we still believe/ We’re willing but not able, to discern reality
They say, “Pick your battles”, this one I’ll choose / what’s real can’t be rattled, the truth cannot lose
The struggle is real with reality/ fiction seems fine for a few on mainstream
Smoke and mirrors, can anybody hear us? / cynical, weary, and jaded
Life has enough of hate unwound, will the real love stand up and be found
Typical times, faces frown, we’re all wondering where we’re bound
Still, in my dreams, what things seem, is as real as a silent sound
Can we agree, smart TV, is the way to stay up to speed
Look high and low, all around, some gray areas still are found
Don’t be afraid, questions fade, like “what’s the color of your Koolaid?”
Left, left, left, right, left / will the sound of grace surround their steps
Sometimes when the world’s goin’ to hell, you gotta let her / grandpa said it best, “the least you can say, the better”
That once in a blue moon, watching the zoo news, is all it takes to steal your peace
In the air, everywhere, the world is spinning wisdom into something unfair
You and I, we’re fighters, we’ve got the strength inside us, we’re not giving up, no way
I’ll show you how, this promise to you I’ll make
I know I’ve never walked in your shoes, but I’ve lost too many I didn’t want to lose
We won’t let the future happen without you, it’s not what you have in life, it’s who
Hold on to hope’s shoulders, crush temporary pain, on the other side of sorrow, there’s a joy calling out your name
Somewhere in the future, someone’s waiting in your shoes, you’re gonna miss the chance to say, “I’m here to pull you through”
You’ll miss out on the love if you’re leaving, not only with the giving, but receiving
The end of this small vapor will show you how you shined, you’ll know you’re in His favor, and going now is not your time
So, we won’t let the future happen without you / ‘cause it’s not what you have in life, it’s who
You’ll never know the heartbreak of the people left at home, all the ones who love you so are worth you holding on
If you leave now, these small years won’t be enough, can’t you see how, you’ll be missing so much love
You’ll never know what could have been, what blessings you’ll receive, you’ll miss the love that waits for you, you’ll miss all the meant to be
Mountains of memories that make life worthwhile, each one in pictures, a celebration of smiles
Sitting ‘round the table with family and friends, tomorrow’s sweet moments won’t have a chance to begin
You’ll miss all the moments, the treasures in time / erase all your future, if this you decide
Like growing old with the love of your life, and how your soul’s reflected in your children’s eyes
Milestones and memories, a family that grows / you’ll miss all the love that won’t have a place to go
Sometimes you need someone, to listen in your life / to care in the chaos, to search for the sky
We won’t let the future happen without you / it’s not what you have in life, it’s who
The you with hopes, the you with dreams, the you that used to live for these things
In the middle of the Golden Gate, There’s a little memory of the you that waits
We’ll rob this bridge of its reputation Drown every inch of desperation
Sometimes you need someone, to listen to your life/ to care in the chaos, to search for the sky
Hold on to hope’s shoulders, crush temporary pain / on the other side of sorrow, there’s a joy calling out your name
Just know that you matter, and your worth is priceless / and I want you to stay, yes, everyone wants you to stay
Just talk and I’ll listen, anything you tell me, will stay here on this bridge, it’s a promise and I’ll sign it
Someone out there loves you, you’re somebody’s treasure / losing you would hurt, more than you could ever measure
My soul is still searching, patiently and wordless / close enough to see, I need to have that perfect timing
There’s hope in hesitating, you don’t really want this, it’s not your destiny, tomorrow’s life is what you can’t miss
Walkin’ on the Golden Gate, you’re standin’ there tempting fate / close to the edge, of that breathtaking bridge, Lord, I hope I’m not too late
I see your shoulders shaking in the wind / and feet are inching closer to the edge of the end
I’ve stood there before in my mind, imagined what I’d leave behind
Hey, I know I’ve never walked in your shoes, but I’ve lost too many I didn’t wanna lose
Pain is so plain in your eyes / I’ll keep my distance, I’ll listen, please just try
If you’re thinking you’ll end all the rain, you’d be wrong That’s the thing about permanent pain, you just pass it on

Take Us to Somewhere
Somewhere in the sun is not for everyone, gray clouds can be silver lined
Hope is running high like lightning in the sky and fear’s feeling like an also ran.
Imperfect worlds may spin and storms begin again, but we’ll find our place in the end
Everybody’s story, the other side of glory, they’re needing someone to understand
Turn the hourglass, make this moment last, create the courage to stand
And who can see those dreams, but angels without wings, destined before time began
Make the moves with faith and just a touch of grace, the world’s watching us take our stand
We’ll do what’s really rare, impossible we’ll dare, and give while we live, that’s the plan
Our castles in the air can finally compare to visions not wasted at all
Hope’s a hurricane, that sweeps away the pain, and lonely is leaving us all
Stop and breathe the air, the roses everywhere, let’s live life with love and give all
Lonely disappears, with all the things we fear, and kindness shines clear through it all
Everyone compares, a life to something rare, let’s treasure that truth, one and all
Now we we are aware, we know that someone cares, we’ll hold that real love above all
A treasure without price, someone giving, someone nice, sweeping in like clouds to catch us all
Storms are here to stay, clouds are in our way, but the view we take says it all
Hope is is the air, hearts under repair, and kindness is waiting for all
Down is where we’ve been, up is here again, let’s run to where we can stand tall
We’re now in one accord, sometimes a two-edged sword, but kindness wins out, worth it all
Show someone they matter, help them up the ladder, kindness goes places that tall
Compassion now is key, it’s how we live and breathe, breaking down yesterday’s walls
Hear their voices, holding hope, listen to their song Every breath is finding faith’s, been there all along
So take a thousand chances, keep giving your sunlight / no matter who still dances, it’s faith that fools the night
Fresh and clear excitement, sweeping through our veins / pounding through the night like, thunder and the rain
Let’s keep the current flowing, building strength with every breath Show the world what we are made of, put compassion to the test
Just one breath can be the key that opens up the door / leading us to you and me living like never before
We’re intertwined like rivers running rampant through the earth / one voice and mind reaching out for everyone who thirsts
Giving back is easy when it’s natural as breathing, and it’s so much better, yeah, it’s better than receiving
Every time we take a breath, another one is there / one more chance to help someone, this has to be our prayer
The faith in our humanity is at an all time high / spreading all around the globe at the speed of light
A language universal, that everyone is breathing / needing no rehearsal, through every land is sweeping
Like a mustard seed of faith doesn’t have to be thought through, compassion is a natural, just the right thing to do
All creation marvels at how little things count most / the wonders of the world have nothing on the way love goes
The joy we feel is catchy, like a tune on billboard charts
We’re in a place of magic, how don’t matter, here we are
It’s music and it’s magic, with the earth on bass guitar
The galaxies are guiding us, the sun, the moon, the stars
We’re gearing up the giving, hitting straight out of the park
Pulsing ‘round the planet, moving light, deleting dark
It’s breaking all the records on the planet’s breathing charts
And the rhythm of the sun, as it’s heating up the dark
The universe is singing, no more silence in the dark
Excitement’s all around us, fresh and clear and off the charts
The planet’s waiting patiently for people who still care
The stars that fall from someone’s eyes can shimmer like before / a word, a call, a look, a touch, a knock on someone’s door
Tomorrow is a second chance to leave a legacy / compassion filled with grace will dance together endlessly
A breath of hope is heaven hypnotizing all who hear
The future's where we find it when our faith is flying free Take us to tomorrow where it’s written by you and me
The road is rimmed with reasons to remember where we’ve been
Let’s move the heavens, move the earth, the mountain’s there to climb
Tomorrow is a second chance, to leave a legacy / compassion filled with grace will dance, together endlessly
When hearts are set on faith and grace, our voices ring as one/ Like thunder and the lightning race, to meet beneath the sun
The time we spend, the words we say, are treasures to someone/ the hope we had in yesterday will never be undone
The way to change is not that long, make one step at a time/ compassion can be the lights of home, if hearts just let it shine
Somewhere where someone sees our needs, somewhere we can belong/ somewhere we’re heard with empathy, a place that feels like home
Everyone all around the globe, is living on the edge/ we’re hanging on to threads of hope, each breath will build a bridge
Keep our compassion radar high, constantly be aware/ See the needs, don’t let them slip by, show them somebody cares
We’ll spread compassion ‘round the earth, making the message clear/ If just one someone sees their worth, differences disappear
The strength we place in other hearts, comes back to us in time/ and when we stay to raise the bar, true happiness we find
We’ll fly so high above the storm, our sun will blaze so bright/ fires of compassion keep hearts warm, and surround us with their light
What we do in the here and now, will stand the test of time / the silver lining in our clouds, heals hearts like yours and mine
Tomorrow is a second chance to leave a legacy, kindness and respect will dance together endlessly
Kindness, kindness and respect, Everybody’s arsenal for awesome effect
Clearing skies, on the other side of sorrow You and I, with softer eyes, see tomorrow
The barriers are blown away each time your heart hears mine
They’re looking for a light, spent too many nights, tryin’ to find a way to tell us / they’re standing in the rain, thinking life is all in vain, when someone shows up with umbrellas
Hear the rhythm of a new us, with a kind touch / caring and respect that people need so much
Everyone is searching for a sign that someone cares
That rare kindness, everyday find it Somewhere, someone needs it today Recognize, when passions run high, It brings us to a better place, rare kindness
Just a little lifting of a burden, just a little hearing of a heart Just a little standing with each other, in the middle of the dark
They say that faith moves mountains, I say it moves hearts, too
All around this earth, everyone is on the edge, we’re hanging on to hope, each breath will build a bridge
Let’s give all the love we have to give ‘Cause it’s all about how it makes them feel
I’ll write it on a banner in the sky for all to see, I’ll climb that patient mountain ‘cause it’s gotta start with me
Paying it forward, passing it on, little things matter when we are alone
Lonely’s in the air, discouragement and despair, but kindness erases it all
All around this earth, everyone is on the edge, we’re hanging on to hope, each breath will build a bridge
We’re desperate for a day when hearts will really see, whatever happens next is up to you and me
When someone needs someone, can’t make it on their own No one’s an island here, you’re not alone, not alone
Let hesitation have no attraction And kindness automatic reaction
Here’s a little wish for me and you Take it to your heart, make it come true
Taking back the time that used to be We’ll start over, start with you and me
How awesome is the chance to really see / there’s power in the dance of empathy
So, take the turn on kindness boulevard Make their burdens burn like shooting stars
A little kindness, and the faithless will stand tall
So let’s hold them in our hearts, all around the earth They just wanna be seen, wanna be heard
We’ve gotta notice needs Say thank you and please Go out of our way to crush walls
And the bridge we build will be beautiful The hearts we heal will be full of love
A little love moves mountains, miracles can happen, we’ve just gotta answer that call
So, let’s shift our view, ‘cause it’s what we do, that makes a difference
What if we hear them, is it enough What if we’re clearer with deeds of love
What if we hear them, is it enough What if we speak clearer with deeds of love
Together we can weave their wings, they’ll fly instead of fall
Compassion is calling you and me, kindness is the key
A message I would send, if I could just get through that wall / remind them they can win and their mountain’s gonna fall
They’re needing just a look that says compassion is the key / new eyes to keep the faith, strength will come through you and me
I wanna do my part, surround them with the sun / tear the mountains down, and let us live, as one
They feel invisible, not seen or heard at all, security is gone, no catching them, they fall
When someone needs someone, can’t make it on their own, no one’s an island here, you’re not alone, not alone
I can see myself, in reflections in their eyes / our hearts are just the same, just looking for the light
All around this earth everyone is on the edge, we’re hanging on to hope, each breath will build a bridge
Wishing I could walk them out of dark into the light, it’s been a long time coming but we’re gonna end this night
We’re desperate for a day when hearts will really see, whatever happens next is up to you and me
I know you’re kinda scared, who can you trust now / this burden can be shared, I’ll lighten it….somehow
My hands are here to hold you up to reach beyond the stars, I’ll stand with you right now, or when you’re ready, no charge
Shoulders hunched they’ve carried worlds of weight a million miles
So I don’t expect a right away reaction when I’m kind
The yesterdays they dream about have all but left their lives
But when I am remembering the used to be, they shined
The feet that used to dance for days can’t walk another mile
They need a glance, a second chance at seeing life’s worthwhile
They wear a frown to push away the pain in lonely eyes
The towns are lonely places covered up with cloudy skies
They’ve been to hell to come back here, now heaven’s on speed dial
They watch their sad reflections wishing windows weren’t in style
They’d rather be in places back in yesterday’s sweet time
The sun is shining down on them but rain is in their eyes
I’ll walk there just in case it’s gonna help if they see mine
Their hurting hearts need someone just to hear them for a while
I listen for the laughter that’s been lost a little while
Alone in crowded places we’ve been distancing for miles
A reason to remember might just take a little while
And all the empty places are reflected in their eyes
The streets are full of faces who’ve forgotten how to smile
Compassion comes in quietly when hearts have open doors / I care for you, you care for me, we’re better than before
Compassion climbs in easily when hearts have open doors, I care for you, you care for me, we’re better than before
I’ll write it on a banner in the sky for all to see, I’ll climb that patient mountain ‘cause it’s gotta start with me
A simple conversation is all I’m asking from you, as long as we are in it every minute starts brand new
I wanna see your way of seeing, wear your shoes and walk for miles
They say that faith moves mountains, I say it moves hearts, too
We’ve had enough of brokenness / I’ll give your heart some space
The need to feel we’re needed now is like the air we breathe
We take the chance, imagining no song and dance of words
The streets are full of faces who’ve forgotten how to smile
We’re desperate for a different day when hearts will really hear
We’ll move the heavens, move the earth, to get back to the time
We memorize the way we were when every word was heard
And everyone is searching for a sign that someone cares
If being heard was still a thing, I’d drown in happiness
Something everybody needs more than they can admit
So I hope the someone listening is you
It’s like a perfect symphony for hearts in need of this
And all the noise just makes me miss it more
An open heart is rare, so hard to find
That familiar, sweet connection, heart to heart, the perfect fit
Talking to myself is how I know that I exist
Lonely words are never really heard
Everyone could use a hearing heart
If anything can break a heart, it’s living without this
Just like an old familiar song, it’s one I can’t resist
I’m waiting on the world to find it’s way
It’s back there in our used to be, but does it still exist
These are the days, I wanna hear you / I wanna hear you with my heart
Don’t wanna waste a second of the fire that’s burnin’ now / my body’s finally feelin’ what my mind can’t do without
You and me, we’re gonna shine, like the stars we will align / throw the distance out the door, get back all we had before
Anticipation heavy, from my head down to my toes / I’ve had enough of distance, I wanna pull you close
Gonna take my time, spin this moment around / hear the song with my heart, get my body off the ground
Rescued, airlifted by the rhythm, me and you shakin’ up this town / breakin’ through, blockin’ inhibition, makin’ all the moves, we’re gettin’ down
Now we’re dancin’ and the beat’s on fire, romancin’ while the flames burn higher / every note is rockin’ as we come unwound, you and me, girl, were gettin’ down
Anticipation heavy, from my head down to my toes / I’ve had enough of distance, I wanna pull you close
I’m pullin’ in the parkin’ lot, my body’s in the clouds / get ready for the moves I’ve got, girl just watch me now
Shiftin’ down my Chevrolet, rear view mirror reachin’ / wonderin’ what I’m gonna say, knowin’ no words needed
I hear a breakthrough comin’, a melody so clear / it’s harmony in motion, it cuts away my fear
My eyes are not believing, you’re here knocking on my door / my body’s movin’ like I’m on the dance floor
And automatically, I’m a puppet on a string / pulled in by the magic, while you’re doin’ your thing
My arms just wanna hold you, your voice sets me on fire / and your eyes are singin’ love songs that make the flames burn higher
And the look in your eyes is all I need to survive / wanna tear up this town with you by my side, just gettin’ down
I’m drownin’ in your voice now, your touch just outta reach / my breath’s jumped offa lockdown, and I’m meltin’ through the screen
So tell me I’m not crazy, tell me everything’s alright / say I may be kinda shaky, but I’m gettin’ down tonight
Gonna take my time, spin this moment around / hear the song with my heart, get my body off the ground / yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m gettin’ down
I just wanna way to break free, but I feel paralyzed / I know this ain’t the real me, and it’s time to realize
My energy’s directed to just keepin’ myself sane / but still I hear the music, it’s callin’ out my name
Guess I’m goin’ nowhere, can’t get up off my knees / is there somethin’ out there, can it bring me up to speed
And I’m a little out of patience when I hear my favorite jam / cause I want that same old feelin’ and I should be gettin’ down
But the beat, the rhythm in my body’s set on surround / and somewhere in the middle of my mind I’m gettin’ down
You’d think a heart like mine would shake it off, put up a fight / you’d think a little time is all I need, and you’d be right
In these moments everybody’s needin’ somethin’ and we got it goin’ on / a little getaway from crazy days, a little party right here in our home sweet home
Don’t wanna sleep tonight, don’t wanna waste any time / don’t wanna miss a chance, I just wanna dance, my feet ain’t gonna touch the ground
It’s in the air that I breathe, it’s holdin’ every heartbeat / a fire under my feet, the music’s movin’ in me
Life right now seems, upside down we, run the town streets, they’re all sound free
On our minds, better times, oh we just can’t wait / comin’ round, lost and found, why not celebrate
Anytime I close my eyes, gotta vision that won’t go away / dancin’ in the middle of time, dreams that take me to a great escape
Two hearts in love, what heaven’s made of / a universe designed for me and you
Two lights in love, two’s just enough / I couldn’t wish for more this whole life through
Two, yeah, two I do’s, two, words we choose / together’s what we never want to lose
Two through the years, laughter and tears / I just wanna keep on doin’ what we do
Two eyes that smiled, when two walked the aisle / full of all the love we fell into
Two arms embrace, two hands will shape a perfect life together, me and you
Two hands to hold, two lips so close / I’m in love with the one who means the most
Two big dreamers, that’s what we were, we made all our dreams come true
Two times the joy, two make one voice / you and I in love our whole life through
Two souls in tune, two on the move, a journey of love made for me and you
Two hands to hold, two lips so close
Oh life before we met I don’t remember it
Now our life together is so great / night and day’s the difference your love makes
Nothin’ more is needed, I got your love / you and me will always be enough
This love that we’ve got is amazing / life is full with dreams that we’re chasing
I know that you love me and you mean it / you say it with a look and no words needed
It was in the stars, this love is so strong / right here in your arms, that’s where I belong
All the early years of together / were wonderful but now’s even better
Every little reason I can think of / gotta get together with my true love
You’re the gentle breezes under my wings / makin’ dreams come true for us in all things
Kinda like the lightning and thunder / I can read your mind, don’t have to wonder
Thought I’d never find someone so right / you’re the only one who changed my mind
Seems like we’ve been you and me our whole life through
Together was designed for me and you
All the years of happiness are living proof
You’re my heart and here’s the part that’s always true
Looking back on us, my heart it always knew
I just know I’m living now for loving you
From the start my heart had dreams for me and you
What began so long ago still feels brand new....
Every hour, every second lived with you....
Oh life before we met I don't remember it
And I’m glad you’re by my side, took a while but love arrived
And your place from the start was waiting in my heart
Never thought it would, but life got really good
We’ve wasted time apart, but now love’s off the charts
But I wish you’d been back there, cause the past just seems so bare
And lonely’s left behind cause we’re two of a kind
Back then there was no “we”, now two’s our destiny
I tried this life alone, but together feels like home
Our lonely yesterdays, made for two replaced
Mountains and awesome views
Springtime and trees in bloom
And yesterday’s golden rule
And promises we both choose
Pictures of me and you
Photographs old and new
Children and playground rules
An old pair of cowboy boots
And something old, something new
The dark when the dawn breaks through
The grass and the mornin’ dew
They make the heart still move
The sky and the color blue
Memories we won’t lose
It’s rain and umbrellas, it’s what our hearts tell us
Making an entrance, you finish my sentence
Like reminiscin’ / sweet talkin’ and listenin’
Takin’ the back roads and you drivin’ real slow
Smoke and a fire, two heart’s desire
Like thunder and lightening, we’ve got perfect timing
Watchin’ the sunset, dancin’ where we met
Wanna spend every minute of it just you and I
It’s incredible how love needs you and I
It’s incredible how our hearts were designed
But it’s wishful thinkin’ if two stars can’t align
But that’s only a dream if there’s no you and I
Tellin’ tomorrow we’d always be you and I
Makin’ tomorrow’s memories, you and I
Got me to believin’ in visions and signs
You and I together don’t have to think twice
Just one look said love’s about you and I
My heart’s lovin’ all things you and I
You and I together with addition signs
Underneath the starlit night sky
Maybe you and me were heaven’s design
You wanted only one heart, just mine
We found this love with just one try
Me findin’ you was no surprise
You’re the one that’s gonna change my mind
We can even dance through midnight
The stars can’t hold a candle to your eyes
(Yeah and I) saw the way you really did see me / every little part of the real me / made for two took down my big lonely sign
(Yeah and you) noticed all the things that mattered / you healed a heart that had been shattered
I don’t know what we did to turn the light on / but now it’s crystal clear all the doubt’s gone / this love’s made for two like that old song line
(Yeah and you) bring out all the light that’s within me / my heart is glowin’ so the whole world sees / gotta thank the stars for a cool design
Every single star made all the right moves / lining up our hearts the way they’re meant to
My heart dancin’ was the first clue / that maybe life was made for two
My heart dancin’ was the first clue / that you and me would say “I do”
Everything around me’s telling this truth / a universe designed by this breakthrough
Maybe all the math I had in high school / will help me find a way so you’ll know, too
Now I know together is what we’ll do, always
The simple sight of you sittin’ single tonight / I couldn’t help but notice by the moon’s dim light / you looked so blue
From day one I think I always knew / the couple things about me and you
It’s the sunset I wish you could see when I’m far from home / it’s the movie that plays on tv when I’m all alone
Looks like everything under the sun is wired for one plus one
Together we can calm the fear inside us / And see the beauty in the chaos
Together we can calm the fear inside us / And see the beauty in the chaos
If we’ll take a look around and help someone in need / heart to heart the kindness circles back to you and me
What a change we are gonna make for all the world to see / a little kindness we’ll give and take and spread it endlessly
One by one we spread the kindness that everybody needs / the fever runs so far and wide it’s like the air we breathe
Every heart is gonna send a note that says keep goin’ strong / we’re apart but love is gonna flow like rivers on the roads we’re on
Somethin’s comin’ over everybody, this emotion / spreadin’ like a wild fire, deeper than the oceans
Maybe someday when we will listen, and the quiet won’t be there / And the waiting will be worth it, cause everybody will care... let this be our prayer
On the other side of endless, when it’s over and we’re free / surrounded by the kindness, we’ll leave a legacy...just you and me
When today’s just like tomorrow and the nights are all the same / time is motionless with sorrow and we’re frozen in the pain...and endless rain
When our voice is just a whisper and our song can’t make a sound / and too many hearts are beating to a restless rhythm now...in too many towns
In the middle of this moment, when our life’s been rearranged / ‘tho we’re frightened for our future, on the wind we sense a change...we’ll never be the same
Somewhere strength is building softly, joining hearts bound in despair / and the differences between us seem to vanish in thin air.....something so rare
We are one and findin’ we can spread the kindness / can’t you look and see it starts with you and me
The turmoil won’t be takin’ the feelings in our hearts / we’ll pull each other closer like we’ve never been apart
Yeah, we’re in a battle, lookin’ in the mirror / but the change we’ve gotta make is gettin’ clearer
Now we’re leanin’ on each other from afar / and we believe in miracles, that’s who we are
Hope lifts our hearts up to a higher place / even apart we’ll dance like we are face to face
No one’s an island, can’t keep us apart / ‘cause what’s holdin’ you and me, it’s here in our hearts
One thing we know for sure that keeps us strong / we’re all one family and we belong
Our hope will rise above this pain
Faith will shine a light in darkness
One thing we know for sure that gives us hope
What really matters is what’s in our hearts
When today’s just like tomorrow and the nights are all the same / time is still with loss and sorrow and we’re frozen in the pain
When our faith is just a whisper, and our hope can’t make a sound / and too many hearts are beating to a lonely rhythm now
In the middle of this moment, when our faith is rearranged / though we’re frightened for our future, on the wind we sense a change
Somewhere hope is building softly, joining hearts bound in despair / and the differences between us seem to vanish in thin air
We all wanna be a light in the dark / we all wanna see love spread heart to heart
Anxiety fills every soul, spreading fast, out of control / where is the peace we’re longing for
In a perfect storm of pain and despair / don’t let us fan the flames already there
Everyone of us just wants to live / we wanna sleep at night, and we want our hearts to heal
Familiar feelings, lonely and afraid / news sends us reeling, ‘cause hate can’t drive out hate
Another “what is today day” / another 24 hours of strange things / it’s time to stop spreading this hate / and say we’re gonna find some way to change things
Another “what is today” day / another 24 hours of strange things that face us / it’s easy to just wanna say / let us all off this planet, just break us
All we want is just a clear tomorrow / when the sun has swept away the rain
Visions of life, the plans that we made / all up in smoke, now we’re feelin’ so afraid
When we’re lookin’ at our lives and nothin’ here we recognize / dancin’ on the edge of desperation
Never saw it coming, days when hope would be so hard to find
Hearts are changed by chaos / the rhythm of a new us
Oh, the sweet sound of chaos / the strength that it will give us
In the middle of chaos / there’s a simple, true way out
There is strength in the chaos / a you and me, we forgot
The silver lining in chaos / is the heart change inside us
If chaos makes hearts listen / we can make a difference
Chaos and crisis / me and you and sacrifices
The fires of chaos may burn / but there’s a lesson we’ll learn
One by one we’ll catch the fever / paying forward is our healer
We’ll change the chaos into kindness / turn a light on where there’s blindness
When we’re thinkin’ of givin’ in / lettin’ all the chaos win
Chaos is surroundin’ me and you / we’re reachin’ for a rescue
Together we can calm the fear inside us / And see the beauty in the chaos
Contagious, comin’ down with major crush / yeah, somethin’s comin’ over us, this love is contagious
When hearts are how we touch, the love is contagious
Love in action and giving back / don’t have to say much / we’re all playing the same sweet track / kindness contagious
Our world’s lit up with hope, shining like pure gold / kindness in the heart of all creation, ‘cause love’s contagious
Another “what is today” day / another 24 hours of strange things that face us / it’s easy to just wanna say / let us all off this planet, just break us
We’re all on the same page, chasin’ the same grace / kindness can save us, we’ll make it contagious
Waitin’ on the world to find a safe touch / need it now, we all are in a great rush / somethin’ in the air, used to be so rare / kindness flowin’ down, it’s contagious
Every day we take a risk / life has never been like this / upside down and so outrageous / turned around, the fear’s contagious
Chasin’ The Same Grace
Dancin’ in the Distance
Strength in the Distance
When All Eyes Smile
We’re Touchin’ Tomorrow
It’s How We Hope
Hearts Never Close
Invisible Smiles
Can We Get There from Here?
Contagious Kindness
I Feel the Need for Peace
One memory, keeps us hangin’ on / One you and me, comin’ back so strong
One truth, we will never be the same / One wish, may the love we find remain
One color, everybody shows / one painting, true and vibrant glows
One glimpse of heaven’s unity / one sight, amazing you and me
One truth, things may never be the same / one wish, may the love we’ve found remain
One stand, sweet sacrifices made / one plan, designed so lives are saved
One touch, from those who brought us through / one hand, we hold in gratitude
One person, where it all begins / one lesson, waves of love rush in
One future, waiting for us now / one earth where, lost will turn to found
One memory, keeps us hangin’ on / one you and me, comin ‘ back so strong
One sound, heard all around the earth / one voice, a heaven sent rebirth
One love, the universe displays / enough, that earth can still amaze
One sound, soars in the atmosphere, one voice, the reason we’re all here
One earth, surrounded with sweet peace / one light, the beauty of our strength
One voice, to hold each other close / one choice, when people mean the most
These are the times to protect one another / no reasons or rhymes, just care for each other
So we’ll write this down, the beautiful moments / that give us light and hope when we are broken
Even if we’re oceans away / beautiful emotions will stay
So, how do we keep this vision glowin’ / will we believe it, tell it, show it
So let’s grab and hold on to the people we love / like there’s no tomorrow, today is enough
Now everybody’s workin’ as one / heroes goin’ above and beyond
Comin’ out on the other side of this / we’ll make up for all the moments we missed
We’ll never take another day for granted / never let the love we feel go unsaid
Until we’re on the other side of searchin’ / we’ll keep on tryin’ to survive with courage
You and me, are all that really matters / we hold the key, we write this chapter
One earth, surrounded with sweet peace / one light, the beauty of our strength
One voice, to hold each other close / one choice, when people mean the most
One sound, heard all around the earth / one voice, a heaven sent rebirth
Somewhere, we may not reach today / one prayer, says we are on our way
One more, of us is all it takes / one chain, a bond that will not break
One move, of mountains in our way / one truth, let it be here to stay
One place, where distance isn’t far / One time, when no one is apart
One bridge, that makes new memories / one us, in solidarity
One clock, that you and I rewind / one stop, reverse the hands of time
One race, you and I must run / no sprint, this is a marathon
One more of us is all it takes / one chain, a bond that will not break
One earth, the only home we know / one sun, still warming us with gold
One home, the earth is all we have / one shot, let’s get it right somehow
That sky, a promise in its shine / that dream, we’ll make it true this time
One might, say we’re not there today / but that light, shows we are on our way
One light, the universe’s smile / one fire, ablaze across the miles
One climb, this mountain in our reach / one try, that’s all we really need
One earth, driftin’ out in space, one home, for all the human race
One earth, hanging out in space / one home, with beauty and with grace
One sound, soars in the atmosphere / one voice, the reason we’re all here
One love, a universe displays / enough, that earth can still amaze
One way, we all can feel rebirth / one rain, of brotherhood on earth
One sun, a golden gleam of hope / one wish, that whispers in our souls
One world, sendin’ out a dove / one wish, to draw us close with love
One world, it’s all about the love / one hope, we hope there is enough
One world, though oceans separate / unfurled, emotions never fade
One world, facin’ one great storm / one cloud, when wings of faith are born
One world, one rhythm, one heartbeat / one voice, the pulse of family
One world, facin’ one great storm / rises, and wings of faith are born
One world, the music isn’t gone / no one’s an island on their own
One world, as simple as it seems / one love, is how we’ll live the dream
One heart, it’s how we can embrace / one voice, to sing of love and grace
One pearl, revolvin’ in the blue / one chance, it’s up to me and you
And when we come out on the other side / we’ll laugh and love as one with brand new eyes
And the day will come, when we’ll laugh again, all the earth will remember when...
And with unity, we’ll win the fight, it’s beauty breathing in the light
With flags unfurled and one heartbeat / we’ll shake the world with the sound of peace
We’ll hold onto what matters most / keep memories and families close
And we’ll join the millions ‘round the earth / waiting for the world’s rebirth
And we’ll let those on the front lines know / we treasure them like pure gold
We are one great planet on the move / all for one and one for all we choose / brotherhood is key, helping those in need, it’s what we do
Lookin’ at our circumstances now / we are standin’ on a strange new ground / so much we can’t see, when the enemy’s, invisible
Hear the sound of whispers in the wind / everybody’s wonderin’ will it end / facin’ one great storm, wings of faith are born, and we will rise
We will push our differences aside / you and I, erasing them from time / this blue pearl is home, we have all been shown, we share one dream
Tired of losin’ loved ones in this fight / missin’ all the memories tonight / stars light up the sky, ask the reason why, this has to be
You and I have seen the sun go down /leavin’ empty streets and silent towns / let love be our plan, show it while we can, don’t waste more time
One pearl, revolvin’ in the blue / one chance, it’s up to me and you, we’re saving one world
Hearts touch, while time is standin’ still / hearts hope, tomorrows will be real, we are one world
Someday, this all will be a dream / we’ll live, the way life’s meant to be / forever, one world
One heart , it’s how we can embrace / one voice to sing of love and grace, oh we are one world
Yeah, we are one world / holdin’ it together while it all unfurls
Tomorrow won’t see empty streets / we’ll find a way to live in peace
Can’t touch, we’ll hold on to emotions / so much, hearts will dance ‘cross the oceans
We’ll show love cause we’ve seen it / we’ll say it like we mean it
We’ll sing with souls on fire / we’ll take this love much higher
So, listen with your heart / we all need a brand new start
For we are one world, caring for each other
In one world we breathe / in one love believe / caring and kindness, it’s our destiny
No matter how this ends / a message we must send
For this, we’re not prepared / but our hearts meet everywhere
Caught up in emotions / divided by these oceans
All of us are dancers / searchin’ for life’s answers
And if hearts like ours reach out / we can turn this thing around
So let us dream in this dark night / the human spirit shines so bright
Through it all we’ll keep the faith / hearts in motion, lives we’ll save
And if we stand together in this fight / out of the darkness we’ll see light
When lonely streets get to be too much / and only hearts are allowed to touch / kindness leads the way, speaking words that say, loud and clear
Sit and wait and hope for better days / we’ll celebrate in time or so they say / this uncertainty, surrounding you and me, rains like fear
Don’t need gold or silver, don’t need pearls / just keep hearts still beating in this world / the key to treasure now, we stand together proud, and make it clear
Distance in between us grows each day / separation, there’s a toll it takes / but even with the walls, love won’t let us fall, in waves of fear
Nothin’ seems familiar anymore / hardly can remember our before / like a magic show, life we used to know, has disappeared
All this time to kill, got us learnin’ / bridges we should build, instead of burnin’
One pearl, revolvin’ in the blue / one chance, it’s up to me and you
You made the sacrifice / just so I could live free / peace carries such a price / we can’t see / but believe me
Peace like tsunami waves / hear it rushing in / those wings of war will break / it will end / and you’ll win
I’ll live and breathe for you / burn dark with the sunrise / hold on till peace breaks through / and clear skies / promise this time
If all the yesterdays / rivaled sun with their shine / still I would feel this way, for all time / you’d be my light
Listen and you will hear / their music call you home / glistened with light so near, a love song / it’s a love song
I’ll reach into the sky / and sweep away dark clouds / carry you by my side, to stay now / and I’ll say how
Skies sing the melodies / with ocean’s harmony / we’ll play their songs of peace, and live free / oh, we’ll live free
Someday we’ll reach the sky / where sunlight shines above / someway I’ll help you climb, with my love / all of my love
I hear the sound of peace / surrounding you and me / it’s carried on the breeze, in memories / all our memories
All you have done before / and all that you’ve been through / no one deserves it more / than you do / more than you do
I know the road is long / some dreams may shatter / I’ll keep on holding on / ‘cause you matter / yes, you matter
I’ll carry you / that’s one thing that’s set in stone / it’s all I ever want to do / it feels like coming home
(I’ll carry you) / as long as seasons come and go / as long as universes move / and galaxies still glow
(I’ll carry you) / as long as memories exist / as long as time gives us a few / there’s not one chance I’ll miss
I’ll carry you / in the middle of the rain / lean on clouds and push them through / ‘til only sun remains
I’ll carry you / in a thousand songs I’ll write / make my heart a music room / you can listen anytime
I’ll carry you / standing by is not enough / there’s no mountain I won’t move / to let you know my love
You have to know / after all is said and done / all my life I’ve loved you so / in the rain and in the sun
A thousand songs / your love gave my heart to sing / cherished all of my life long / the music gave me wings
In yesterdays / my wings were ready for the flight / you made sure I knew the way / your heart’s love shined a light
Memories / painted technicolor scenes / in each one your face I see / smiling at my dreams
You treasured me / put my needs before your own / saw the truth in all my dreams / you made my heart a home
You treasured me / put my needs before your own / saw the truth in all my dreams / you made this house a home
I will hold you like we’re young / say the best is yet to come / and I will carry you
I will ask you for this dance / like it’s the last time, the last chance / and I will carry you
I will throw time in reverse / do the things I should have done first / I will carry you
I wanna get back close to home / pay the debt I’ve owed so long / I will carry you
Suns will set and suns will rise / I’ll stay mirrored in your eyes / and I will carry you
There’s a promise I will keep / out of love that’s oceans deep / I will carry you
I will cling to your heart’s light / when we’re walking in the night / and I will carry you
I have memories embraced / they speak softly while I say / I will carry you
I will hear it for all time / ‘cause our hearts are intertwined / I will carry you
For the love that rained on me / I’ll give back all I received / I will carry you
As long as I can breathe / I will stay, I’ll never leave / I will carry you
I will pull you close to me / let you know with each heartbeat / I will carry you
I will be the home you built / I will pull you closer still / I will carry you
I’ll surround you with my love / tell the heavens up above / I will carry you
I will never let you fall / I will be there through it all / I will carry you
I will give you flowers now / and I’ll promise in this vow / I will carry you
Like a song / holds on to every note / like a soul / carries every hope
Like an oasis quenches thirst / like a chapter holds a verse
Like a kindness / I pay forward along the way / like a timeless / memory of yesterday
Like a card played / held so closely to my vest / like a serenade / floating deep inside my chest
Like memories / carried gently in my mind / I'll carry you / until the end of time
Like an old heart / holds a million memories / like a new start / carries hope and “meant to be’s”
Like old home movies / remind us who we used to be / I’ll carry you / into all eternity
Like a home / carries love in every room / like the light / the sun gives back to the moon
Like waves of sound / carried through the air above / I won’t let you down / I’ll keep holding you with love
Like a faithful heart / carries life with every beat / I will play the part / I’ll be everything you need
I’ll remember when / you lifted me through life’s long run / and like the gentle winds / carry waves and bright warm sun / I’ll carry you
I can’t measure / all the love I have for you / you’re my treasure / carried ‘til my life is through
Just like angel wings / take the burdens you can’t bear / I will lift those things / on my shoulders they’ll be there
I will carry you / like the heavens carry truth
Like the sun above /carries light for all the earth
Like a mother’s heart / carries all her children’s love
Told to me from birth / love in every word
Love led you those days / love leads me to say
Listen to me now / speaking love out loud
If tomorrow’s there / count on me to care
Life may rearrange / loving you won’t change
No one saw your pain / crying in life’s rain
When years steal your strength / you will feel love’s length
Somewhere on our way / your hand I will take
Through the years we knew / what I’d need to do
Hope I’ve made you proud / I can promise now
Treasured years have flown / hearts have always known
Now it’s you I’ll hold / just want you to know
That’s what love’s about / comes full circle now
Nothing on this earth / measures what you’re worth
Memories surround / all we’ve lost and found
How can I repay / all those yesterdays
No one on this earth / measures what you’re worth
With your heartbeats, light and laughter filled our home / every breath your soul could breathe, told me I belong
You let me learn, by the way you stood so strong / now I know that it’s my turn, to thank you in a song
Through the years, in your heart I had a home / love would always keep me near, no matter where I roamed
Memories kept in the dark, holding on for miles / living with a heavy heart, even when you smile
They say success is accepting life and what it brings / but I just want to erase this strife that steals our dreams
Are you a little bit lost, grieving what you had to lose / questioning your sanity, and the things you had to choose
When home’s not what you once knew / and you’re wondering what you’re coming back to
In the dark you’re still awake / another nightmare you can’t take / you run out screaming in the rain / can’t face reliving all the pain
Don’t wanna throw a line / don’t wanna waste your time / can anything I say help get you through / you know I’ve got your hand / my heart’s at your command / just say the word and I will carry you
It’s hard to watch you stumble / every step the struggle’s new / your mind’s stuck in that jungle / flashbacks raging through
It’s a life that’s not real, it’s a climb all uphill, and some days you’ll feel there’s just no use trying
It’s been a while since you felt somebody cared / a million miles away you dealt with more than you could bear
Standing on the sands of life, flowing underneath me, solid ground was there just yesterday / slide show in my mind, things that I can’t unsee, wish the wind would blow them all away
When we’re on the backside of nowhere / and this fight is everything but fair
When you trudged up my front steps /rang that rusty bell / son, I could tell
When tidal waves of fear, trapped in deep blue oceans / follow you back home, weighted with emotions
Like a stone stuck in my pocket / (I) can’t pull this pain away
Something in your eyes / comes as no surprise / shoulders weren’t made for this
From drowning in grief / to this sweet relief / peace along heaven's highway
Lights ebb and flow / but you and I know / our love is a tidal wave
Two hearts become bold / we take back the gold / and repaint the world that was gray
When the night is spent / watching stars descend / how can sleep get in our way
Above us, pure gold / and how our hearts know / we've read the sun's résumé
Through windows of gold / the sunlight takes hold / of hearts that the dark can’t dismay
The peace that’s unveiled / says darkness has failed / beauty and light’s here to stay
Yesterday’s story told / washed away, dark on gold / gone, all the fear and the pain
The sound of your voice / gives shadows no choice / they vanish, their moments erased
A lingering kiss / it’s moments like this / we’ll memorize and we’ll replay
Hearts break midnight walls / we now have it all / past the fears, through the years, love stays
On islands of bliss / we'll save the last kiss / til dawn breaks with soft golden rays
Even clear, azure skies / can't rival your blue eyes / it's time you and I celebrate
The stars try their best / but I must confess / they can’t match the glow on your face
The stars pull us close / to things that mean the most / the hours, the time that we make
When we see with our hearts / and we deal with the dark / out of night, into light we escape
When the storm rides the dark / and the clouds hide the stars / and we're fearful but near full of fight
When the last breath of dark / sweeps past our trembling hearts / and the gold sun has outdone the night
When our faith gains some ground / and we turn this night around / unpainted, untainted, we shine
When we’ve moved out of sight / all the pain of the night / and the heavens now beckon and call
When the suns, stars and moons / meet their match, me and you / in elation, all creation rolls out
When the sun, moon and stars / bow down to who we are / unpainted, untainted, and free
Under clear azure skies / we say our last goodbyes / to the shadows and sad ghosts of night
With our face to the sun / and our fear on the run/ heaven’s stars fill our hearts with faith
So we’ll see with our hearts / coming out of the dark / look for reasons and seasons to shine
Even if we run / in the dark forever / in search of golden suns / at least we’re here together
Diamonds dot the sky / comets take a bow / galaxies join in the fight / to leave the light on now
This is all we need / this is all that matters / seconds, minutes, hours / just to climb up heaven’s ladder
The sun slips up and holds / sweet sanity in its wake / laden with its gifts of gold / and healing hearts that ache
Curtains drawn in quiet / tangled in emotions / heartstrings still untie / a love as deep as oceans
Shadows play their games /try to end our story / stars beam through the windowpanes / and burn dark's dream of glory
Curtains drawn in quiet / we're tangled in emotions / heartstrings still unty / a love as deep as oceans
Two hearts block the world / set the clock on timeless / in the doorway shadows curl / blinded by love’s brightness
Windows blaze with sparks / thrown out from planets spinning / fire a message to the dark / this fight with night we’re winning
Eyes reflect the starlight / from heaven’s constellations / hearts alone with midnight / give in to love’s temptations
Heartbeats break the spell / shadows take their last breath / touch the brightness knowing well / dawn will give them no rest
When there’s nothing more to lose / stolen moments make new memories / we can treasure, we can choose / to love what’s left of how we used to be
The seconds, the minutes, the hours / you and I will have the power / steal moments, imitate the stars / brightness will push away the dark
Stars may stumble as they fall / and mountains tumble to the sea / you and I will risk it all / to rise and run on golden streets
We’ll unpaint the past / uncover silver linings / dark days won’t last / they’ll leave sunwashed and shining
Send the message to the sun / drown the darkness in the sea / when all is said and done / the light belongs to you and me
We'll keep each other close / 'cause that's what matters most / the hurt comes, the hurt goes / but we have hearts of heros
And if we touch the stars / aim our hope much higher / stolen moments fly so far / they set the dark on fire
Our minds go back in time / listen to our childhood / simple, fearless play and rhyme / steal all the moments we should
These moments are the key / escape to light and beauty / all we need, just you and me / buy the book, watch the movie
Rainbows hide their gold / somewhere in the shadows / stolen moments find the hope / and aim it right back at us
Rainbows hide the clouds / shine their light of promise / block the darkness and we find / the gold in stolen moments
By the clock we wait / darkness in defiance / at light of day we slip away / to stolen moment’s island
Whirlwinds flaunt their might / fairytales serve their purpose / but in the end what we fight / are fears not left behind us
Hope lives beyond the heartache / moving all the mountains / we steal those moments, take that break / they crumble by the thousands
We climb above the storm / reach into the heavens / pull down sunlight soft and warm / our stolen moment’s lessons
The downpour shakes our souls / caught up in the deluge / we rise up strong and bold / there’s nothing that we can’t do
Castles we may build / made of myths and legends / all we really need to steal / are moments we imagine
Planets stand in stillness / clocks forget to wind / moments stolen, full of realness / glorious and hard to find
When nights collide with days / taking darkness hostage / light will ride the waves / and give us back our lost edge
Golden sun above / announces dark defeated / stolen moments filled with love / are quiet, no words needed (resubmitted)
Just one star that moves / just one ray the sun sends / light breaks through for me and you / these moments in the dark end
In light’s open door / live each moment stolen / like we’ll never have one more / and have the heart to hold them
So right here right now / dark can’t take us under / we’ll live with hearts full out / like lightening and the thunder
Midnight rolls the dice / clock’s against the darkness / stolen moments over ice / melt wherever the heart is
Whispers fall in love / hear the noise no longer / stolen moments, just enough / to dream a dream much stronger
Golden sun above / announces dark defeated / stolen moments filled with love / are quiet, no words needed
Something in the air / makes the moments sweeter / stolen hours from the past / life lanterns, story weavers
Moments grab our hearts / pull us close together / nothing breaks us, even dark / we shine beneath the pressure
Falling into peace / beautiful and glowing / stolen moments, hear them speak / the sound of heartbeats slowing
Shadows cry and leave / done with their dark mission / stolen moments, time to breathe / for us a welcome vision
Tranquil seas of blue / like a jewel glisten / stolen moments, me and you / just hearts that hear and listen
Lessons learned somehow / at seventy or seven / stolen moments give us now / a little piece of heaven
Daylight fills the dawn / we bask in stolen hours / moments made for us alone / steal all of dark’s strong power
Heartbeats break the spell / stolen moments rhythm / leaving light where darkness fell / and all we love stays with them
Will we wish for the chance to redo this life’s dance to change all the wrong into right
We’ll wish for more moments / when dark was upon us / we’d fought back with all of our might
It’s a dream / that recurs / drives us mad / touches nerves / so we pray / for the day / sleep we fight
Can our hearts still believe / what our eyes cannot see / that faith rips the dark from the night
But the chance to get out / in front of our doubt / looks good if our hearts can keep quiet
Sword and shield we keep close / to protect what means most / dark leaves and doesn’t think twice
We will long for our youth / and the moments of truth / and wish we had wasted no time
Still we shine in our soul / in the heart we are whole /the dark is no match for its might
We will think of the place / we all fell from grace / and search for a way back from night
Will we fail this last test / will we try, do our best / to change, cleanse the heart, just in time
Take the key / turn the lock / now our mind / off the clock / can’t touch / what was never / in sight
Wide awake, dreams are gone / back to earth, we are home / to run toward the sun, shining bright
We will wish for more time / not to spend our last dime / but to laugh and hold loved ones tight
‘Tho a dream, makes us think / life can leave in a blink / so we chase it with all of our might
And we hear darkness roar / right behind heaven’s door / we know it’s a dream of the night
In between two masters / on the verge of disaster / our should haves and could haves will fight
Giving up’s not our style / there are angels for miles / and dark is no longer in sight
Then we stick to our plan / to cling to the man / who’s brought us this far out of night
In the midst of the doubt / hoping hope brings us out / faith wins this blind fight with the night
Angels pull us aside / in the blink of an eye / we soar like an eagle in flight
But the anguish of the past / like a fragment of glass / keeps piercing and searing our souls
Black storms rage like a jealous lover / once again we run for cover / hiding and riding it out
Just when we think it’s done / new clouds that weigh a ton / come blasting and casting their spell
In our haste we overlook / the shadows sunset took / while we’re sleeping they’re creeping around
Still we’re pushed and pulled back / freight trains off the track / plunged into dungeons in chains
Now the night holds its breath / to summon sunlight's death / how we long for a strong star to shine
But are we drawn to the flames / does the dark call our name / do we set fires, get higher, by choice
Now the pendulum swings / rain falls on angel wings / and we’re back to the black truth unfazed
When the stress in full force / pounds our souls with remorse / over mistakes and heartaches of old
Black shadows block the sun / we’re back to square one / blinded and reminded of our past
But we speak far too soon / revive doom and gloom / and we’re mangled and tangled in night
Then we’re ripped from our rest / as shadows tempt and test / blows smashing and crashing close by
Still the clouds, raging black / sweep in with fresh attack / and we’re crushed in the rush of despair
Yet the night falls again / to linger and pretend / it’s untangled, an angel of light
Far from done, demons lurk / and shatter all our work / while we huddle and struggle in vain
In the mind, battles rage / til we snap, turn the page /and the broken, unspoken words flow
Still we face one more fight / one more race with the night / and the thunder rolls under our feet
And it’s on us to choose / lose or make breakthroughs / pull the light upon us / in a few stolen moments
Pull a song from the beat / leave the stress on the street / keep the sunlight on us / in our stolen moments
Soaked in cleansing rain / dark no longer torments / cloaked in light, erasing stains / we're washed in stolen moments
Saved by the power / of each stolen hour / we wear rose-colored glasses / til the darkness passes
It’s our time to touch the light / dream the dreams, set fire to night
And for a moment, we bask in the quiet / soft sounds of hope and life, in stolen moments
Now the door to light opens, vision clears in stolen moments, breaking through the black night’s clamor, quiet beauty with each hammer
Take a breath / a stolen moment / slowing down / the hands of time / think of only / what still matters / stolen moments / find the light
Silent sounds of life / draw new hope upon us / beauty brought to light / the hush of stolen moments
Suddenly, sorrow leaves / on a sea blue breeze / quiet light upon us / in stolen moments
And we find a hideaway, a dream escape, a reason to take, stolen moments
Close our eyes / light we find / hurt is gone / left behind / peace of stolen moments / sweet, stolen moments
Wait for it, stolen moments/ don’t forget, time has told us
Waves of peace / life’s sweet rhythm / bring release / deep within us / stop the world / stolen moments / beautiful, stolen moments
Ev’ry beat, soothes our souls / ev’ry breath, pulls us close / stolen moments, clear the mind / stolen moments, beams of light
Softly come, stolen moments / glowing hope, quiet garments / timeless peace, ever promised / take us home, stolen moments
Then the mind runs away / to escape yesterday / and it’s lost, it’s a walk in the park
When restraint is removed / and battles rage of old / with words spoken we’re broken apart
When the clouds burst and cry / raining tears black and bold / and the thunder of plunder now starts
Though fortunes may be spent / in futile failed repent / we’re branded, remanded, and marked
And the air of the night / seems vacant, blue and cold /full of rebels and devils at large
Let the stains tell a tale / of sinister control / sound a hazy and crazy alarm
No matter how we fight / to walk into the light / death eludes us and truth must depart
We pretend fear is gone / but the show must go on / we’re uncertain the curtain will part
When time is no more and terror reigns so bold and we’ve traded our jaded black hearts
Speak the words that wash clean our evil hungry soul / delusion, confusion, we starve
And we watch and we wait for a chance to escape, as the fire burns higher skin chars
There’s a place demons flee to be washed and set free just by asking, unmasking the heart
When the beast that will come wakes us all one by one and we’re shaken and taken and marked
Soul in stress ridin’ clouds of doubt, I’m / lookin’ for new ways to tune out
I just want a little time machine to / fly back in familiar dreams, I’ll / find a space to make wrongs right and / steal a little thunder from the starlight
Why am I countin’ sheep to slumber / why is age more now than a number
Best move I ever made was stand still / stay in now, future, past, they’re not real
Endless nights I’m up til a.m. / nowhere in the dark can dreams live / tell me better days are out there / maybe I’ll believe and I’ll care
“Make my day”, the Devil still taunts me/ this is it, I won’t let him haunt me
Wake up, rerun the same old same old / I’ve just begun to hate this stronghold / do this, do that, do as I’m told / how do I breakthrough, break these molds
Fly like wind was the way outta heartache / Try again can’t outrun my mistakes
Young and full of dreams I remember / yesterdays would burn into embers
I need a minute off this planet to breathe / I can’t really afford just to leave / there’s too many people who still believe / to their happiness I hold the key
There have been days I’ve been paralyzed / afraid to move with my fear disguised / so if I’m taken by surprise / come find me with encouraging eyes
Where can I find what you need to show me / gotta keep hopin’ that hope will hold me
Some might say that I’m sinkin’ low now / losin’ all control of me somehow
So we'll leave love's cover, wrapped around each other
So I'll stay near you now, find my way here somehow
I’ll reach out with these arms, give you now my whole heart
So, from this time forward, I'll make sure my heart's heard
So, you'll hear my heart now, and my arms will reach out
And if tomorrow’s not there, will you wait for me somewhere
Treasure’s in these hours, and my heart is now yours
But, in my mind's a movie of time now I'm losing, (so)
So I’ll make a new vow, fill my hours with right now
And because of that time, I can promise this time
Memories I’m making, desperately not faking
So, together we’ll stay, I’ll make sure for always
Bittersweet time may be / but I’m free from wasting
Time for me’s not over / so I’ll be much bolder
So, I’ll change completely, rearrange these feelings
So I'll stay in the present, do things now that I haven't
So I’ll look at my life, make my moves with new eyes
So tomorrow’s new eyes won’t let time just slip by
So I’ll keep those memories and you’ll make new ones with me
So, I'll face my future, living dreams that endure
So I'll give you flowers while I have these hours
And with you I'll always find the hope, strength, and faith
So I'll make these minutes count til my life's finished
So I'll move on freely, tell you while I'm breathing
So I'll take thia treasure, give my love full measured
All my hopes aren't behind me / even unknown tomorrows, visions I'll never let go, dreams I imagine are mine
Let my fears fall behind me / let love cover tomorrow as far as the seas flow and surround me with peace all my days
Of the losses behind me / what I'd give if tomorrow could take me back there though, where I'd relive my yesterdays
To take a good look behind me / and remember tomorrow can change all that I know and turn my whole world upside down
I should throw fear behind me / or toss it onto tomorrow and just let my cares go ‘cause now is what matters in time
Of each breath left behind me / I can’t touch my tomorrows or see what they may hold, my future’s not written yet
Of love amazing inside me / I have more for tomorrow, I’ll make sure that you know how priceless and treasured you are
Life is far from behind me / but I can’t waste tomorrows on which way the wind blows, I’ll fight this battle with time
Living’s not all behind me / minutes making tomorrows are there to change sorrows and give me the chances I need
Of the treasure behind me / I can't wait til tomorrow 'cause now is all I know, it's time to use all of my time
Though most may be behind me / love has all my tomorrows as sure as the stars glow, it’s gonna keep burnin’ bright
Learn from lessons behind me / and tell all my tomorrows to make what’s left go slow so I might have that second chance
My life’s not behind me / I’ve still got some tomorrows, a chance that my heart knows will give loved ones more of my time
Of the lost years behind me / and the chance for tomorrows without all the sorrows, I’ll get it so right this time
I'm lovin' you always
My heart loves you always
Year's can't erase my love
The years won't dim my love
My emotion’s endless
My love never leaves you
Time's calendar keeps love
I'll love endless lifetimes
I need so much more time
I need more tomorrows
Time's calendar keeps love
Love owns all tomorrows
Love has our tomorrows
Love's timeless, won't move on
Love's endless, it goes on
There's no end to my love
'Cause love lasts a lifetime
Emotions will endure
Forevermore love lives
Time's taken for granted
These mem'ries won't vanish
Love's light burns forever
My ring of love’s endless
Love outshines this lifetime
Worth more than kings' ransoms ( revised with "more than", credit to Terry :)
It's worth a king's ransom
More time would be priceless
Wish we were immortal
Wish our time was endless
I'll stay til time's through here
I'll cling to tomorrows
No limits for my love
You're always my treasure
This love will last so long
I'll dream it's unending
We'll stay like this always
I'll feel this fire always
I'll want this for always
My love's everlasting
Eternity's endless
And I'll pull you closer than I ever have before
I'll put minutes on my priority list
I'll make sure I just choose to do things dearest
I'll treasure each minute while it still exists
I'll hold all the hours in my sweet caress
I’ll pay it all forward, won’t settle for less
I won’t leave cause I’ve seen too much as it is
I’ll stay through the tough times, I’m right there in it
I’ll rewrite the future, the past I’ll outwit
And let it be so clear they won’t have to guess
My family, my friends, too, you’re top of my list
I’ll weigh every minute and feel it’s fullness
And maybe I won’t lose more minutes like this
I'll pour my soul into remembering this
Each minute is precious, can’t wait about this
‘Cause people important to me, they need this
I'll give all the flowers my pockets will fit
I'll show my emotions, the feelings I hid
Put no one above you, my carin’ won’t quit
I'll make sure to hug you and really commit
I fell for the feelin’ / the young keep believin’ / the old me won’t get here for so many more years / and chances seemed endless somehow
I wish I had just known / seen visions of days gone / all the plans that I made / like a melody played / spin through my mind round and round
I can’t make the past change, my choices will remain / if I wish on a star and get there where you are, will I be happy somehow
If I could just go back, stay on the right track / maybe I’d find a way to use lost yesterday’s, more of those moments would count
The way we were, kids without a plan / tearin' through the yesterdays, like they were endless sand
What can I say or do in the now / makin' the most of days I still have / why am I waitin' to knock on that door / anticipatin' what might be in store / ' cause life is short
Sittin’ on the sidelines, turnin’ a blind eye / I’ve been guilty of that
Can’t say I didn’t hear it comin’, my mind’s a major traffic jam / the sound of passin’ years is sure somethin’, I’m stuck there wonderin’ who I am
How do we get lost in what we lose / beggin’ to rewind the things we choose
Don’t wanna live this way, full of regret / for things of yesterday, I’ve not done yet / turns out it’s the memo I didn’t get / life is short
The younger me would not know this / the now’s not what I’d really miss / it’s the people who have passed through heaven’s door / it’s the time, it’s the years I had before / life is short
Six o’clock sunrise, slippin’ into my eyes / one more day to dance
I've still got tomorrows I take for granted / won't know the sorrow of seeds that I planted
A little livin's all it takes / to look at life with new eyes
Some have those who live and breathe / some have only memories
Part of me, part of you / the heart that beats without a clue
The time we’ll never have / it’s gonna hurt the most
All around this globe / common situations / in this boat / all of mankind / our hearts know / we should work it out this time / but I'm never gonna change your mind
So, when I’ve said it all / runnin’ close to empty / walls will fall / hope won’t flatline / love will call / your heart will move you to my side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I see our future now / locked in love forever / free somehow / two of a kind / I’ll back down / let you simmer where you shine / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I won’t let it go / I’m too close to winnin’ / heart and soul / partners in crime / love you so / but losin’s where I draw the line / and I’m never gonna change your mind
So, here’s my strategy / you’ll think it’s your idea / one small seed / planted design / light you see / spread there with my love will shine / and it’s maybe gonna change your mind
So, I could make you choose / my way or the highway / we’d both lose / blind lead the blind / here’s good news / my heart just may accept your side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, have I said enough / do I keep on hopin' / signs show up / breakthrough takes time / real results / I'll look for later down the line / but I'm never gonna change your mind
If I could dream that dream / put you on my page now / be one team / cross t’s and dot i’s / no pulled seams / just our little perfect lines / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I could rock this boat / make all the waves I want to / sit and gloat / if you see my side / I told you so’s / well, they would have an endless life / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I’ll keep eyes on you / look for alteration / watch for clues / listen and smile / take breakthroughs / run with them a thousand miles / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I sense some hope / I'll maybe hold my breath now / wait and cope / send up smoke signs / on tiptoe / stand there in the patience line / but I'm never gonna change your mind
Well, the time has come / I'll take a new direction / the night's still young / and tomorrow sun shines / I'd hold my tongue / but it would never toe the line / and I'm never gonna change your mind
Like an avatar / symbol of your sign / you can’t shake this part
Keys to who you are / unlock every light / settin' free as stars / the notion.....
Keys to who you are / unlock ev'ry light / settin' free as stars are
Little doors ajar /start to open wide /lettin' in a part
I can sense a start / jostle so, so slight /motion from afar
There's a gear in park / waitin' on the light / spinnin' wheels would start /
hesitation part / kinda sees the light / maybe it can start /
Lives a piece of art / wrapped up really tight / painting of a part /
Flyin’ off the charts /much to my delight / lives a little part (credit to Greg Litt for “off the charts”)
So, I’ll blow my top / as often as I need to / that won’t stop / I’m drawin’ the line / your mental block / well, I gotta say it’s one of a kind / and I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I'll take this chance / to tell you I'm not angry / and like romance / I can't design / a perfect dance / but maybe if I'm not unkind / someday I can change your mind
Well, I'm not sure how/ we ever got this started/ just know now/ its gonna be fine/ we'll take a vow/ never let our souls divide/ but I'm never gonna change your mind/ yet I'll try, try, try
Blind and deaf / a lethal combination / no soul’s left / I can’t be unwise / you, yourself / have to see you fell for lies / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I’ll hold on still / cling to my convictions / how I feel / deep down inside / strong and real / enough to bring you back from blind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So give me room / to regroup and recover / I’ll resume / my same worn out lines / hopin’ soon / you’ll listen with no axe to grind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I’ll step this up / a couple notches higher / push my luck / spend my last dime / fill your cup / with all the facts you failed to find / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, before you think / oh, another accusation / here’s a link / you’ll wanna find / I’m on the brink / of provin’ you’re so out of line / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, if I lose my cool / I’ll take a long vacation / like a fool / I still won’t unwind / it’s my rule / never leave the fight behind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So, I’ll say you need / major alteration / yes, indeed / it’s time to revise / when you see / determination in my eyes / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could stop and give up / say you’re more than hopeless / wish you luck / leave you behind / I’m just stuck / lovin’ you for all this time / but I’m never gonna change your mind (resubmitted from a previous round)
I could show you how / you are so mistaken / say out loud / you can’t be right / I care for you / and want you here in my life / but I’m never gonna change your mind ( alternative lines 1 and 2 BNC) “you think you’re so sure now / but maybe you’re mistaken” ( resubmitted from a previous round)
Well, I could come unwound / give you ultimatums / or turn around / and try to be kind / if you’d back down / there’s a different view you’d find / but I’m never gonna change your mind ( credit to Keith Curtis for “try to be kind”) ( resubmitted from a previous round)
Well, I could make a deal / compromise and settle / keep it real / let it all slide / break your will / or learn to let your heart decide / but I’m never gonna change your mind ( resubmitted from a previous round)
Well, I’m almost out / patience nearly empty / my card of clout / it’s been declined / there’s no doubt / you’re runnin’ back to bein’ blind / and I’m never gonna change your mind
(Verse 4 line 3) But when the real deal shines clear
Well in reality / what you hear is useless / if you can’t be / open to right / you must see / lookin’ out of brand new eyes / if I’m ever gonna change your mind
I’m not through / I will keep on pushin’ /thanks to you / I’m here for the climb /it’s past due / facts I’ll make you get behind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
(V4 line 3) But then reality shines clear Line 4 would need to begin with “and” instead of “then”
Life is kind of strange these days
Will I ever walk away / realize the madness never ends / there's no question I will stay / no givin' up, I'm gonna try again
Well, until we're wearing someone's shoes / we'll never feel the stones they're walkin' on / and whatever hard roads they choose / we're gonna have to let them run alone
We’re totally in diff’rent worlds / It’s universal, common to mankind / And everywhere a truth is hurled / It bounces off the stubborn and the blind
We’re walkin’ in a world unknown / never seein’ clearly other views / when the seeds of fear are sown / we’re afraid to even watch the news
I'm feelin' like a fool who's failed / at gettin' just a simple thing across / but I won't be the one who bails / I'm gonna keep on fightin' like a boss
If I have somehow made you see / errors in a twisted point of view / you’d probably still not concede / and I’ll be even more upset with you
Well, I swear I'm makin' progress here / in spite of all the bridges we have burned /and someday on this great blue sphere/ persuasion's gonna be the art I learn
Well, my sanity I'm sure I've lost / always knew there'd be a price to pay / I never thought to count the cost / I'm still not gonna give you any breaks
For all I know I’m on the brink / something in the air says I have won / but then again I stop and think / the game I’m playin’s only just begun
For the record, I’ll not hold back / everything I say I really mean / proof’s in every punch I pack / I’m givin’ you a side you’ve never seen
If only you could realize / livin' in a battle takes it's toll / when your mind is tellin' lies / you gotta get the answer from your soul
Well, I guess I'm chasin' dreams again / runnin' after those that won't come true / just remember I'm a friend / I'm hopin' that I mean as much to you
Well, it seems like this is just a dream / and in the daylight gonna disappear / differences that come between / are gone now and no longer welcome here
Well, I'm never ready for defeat / I'll keep on hopin' I'll get through to you / and maybe when our two hearts meet / the love they have will show us what to do
If we ever put an end to this / there’ll be flyin’ pigs and freezin’ hell / what I’m gonna mostly miss / the fussin’ and the fightin’ we do well
When everything is said and done / and battles are in yesterday's news / nothing's different, nobody won / the love is what we're never gonna lose
I’m wonderin’ if you’re just like me / wishin’ we could stay the way we were / and if we do or don’t agree / all we really want is to be heard
I'm hopin' that I've let you see / sides you never knew were there before / whatever you may think of me / I'm just gonna love you more and more
Well, I could set you straight / write out all my reasons / sit and wait / chill and unwind / you’d erase / everything I underlined / and I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could stop and give up / say you’re more than hopeless / wish you luck / leave you behind / I’m just stuck / lovin’ you for all this time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I could use big words / or try to keep it simple / it’s occurred / you don’t need lines / if you’ve heard / what I’ve said a thousand times / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could spend my days / caught up in this quarrel / it’s that maze / built while you’re blind / I could raise / that elusive bar in time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could make a deal / compromise and settle / keep it real / let it all slide / break your will / or learn to let your heart decide / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could come unwound / give you ultimatums / or turn around / and try to be kind / if you’d back down / there’s a different view you’d find / but I’m never gonna change your mind (Credit to keithcurtis for “try to be kind”)
Well, you are so strong-willed / it’s too hard to reach you / your heart is sealed / it’s one of a kind /like a shield / I can’t ever get behind / and I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could wring my hands / like I’m goin’ crazy / which you can’t stand / you’ll run and hide / and there’s a chance / your heart ends up on my side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could play my role / Use the love unspoken / Win your soul / Give it some time / Break that mold / The one that made your heart’s design / But I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could give you proof / there’s somethin’ to my thinkin’ / it’s plain truth / I’m not gonna lie / your excuse / is sayin’ “I’m always right” / and I’m never gonna change your mind
If I could reach that place / Would it make a difference / I can’t wait / For what I might find / It’s not too late / A heart’s got plenty of time / But I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could climb that tower / like “Sleepless in Seattle” / we’d stay hours / like Hanks and Meg Ryan / give me the power / I’ll make you my Valentine / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I know you’re not me / we’re like oil and water / can’t agree / and that would be fine / if you’d see / we’re still on the same side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
When you hear me out / ‘n have a light bulb moment / then that doubt / erases my try / my hope’s drowned / your heart is what I can’t find / and I’m never gonna change your mind
I could show you how / you are so mistaken / say out loud / you can’t be right / I care for you / and want you here in my life / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could talk all day / hopin’ it will sink in / find a way / make you see why / you’d still say / I’m just wasting your time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I’m never gonna change your mind / Life’s not givin’ us the room for one more chance
I’m never gonna change your mind / ‘cause it overrules your heart and hides your soul
I’m never gonna change your mind / If your heart is set on stayin’ just the same
I’m never gonnna change your mind / in a perfect world my side would be so clear
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s as difficult as wakin’ up a dream
I’m never gonna change your mind / might as well be turnin’ sunlight into gold
Well, you’re never gonna change my mind / if you keep on spinnin’ all your bad as good
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / you don’t listen to what my heart has to say
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s beautiful, it’s strange, it’s kind
I’m never gonna change your mind / guess you lost it when you left me last time
I’m never gonna change your mind / I’ve learned to leave it up to life
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / goes back to when we both were nine
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s like tryin’ to tame the tide
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s set on sayin’ that same goodbye
I’m never gonna change your mind / I’m dreamin’ on borrowed time
You’re never gonna change my mind / this love I got ain’t goin’ outta style
I’m never gonna change your mind / I might as well rearrange the sky
I’m never gonna change your mind / like mountains too high for the climb
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s so outta sync with your heart / one is whisperin’ “Stay this time” / one is shoutin’ that we’re better apart
But don’t apologize / we really tried
I’m over you, I’m strong / but don’t get me wrong
Tomorrow I’ll be fine / at least I’ll try
Moved from an also ran / a much wiser man
Regret ain’t called my name / I’m stronger an’ I’m sane
A match is handy sometimes / read between the lines
I’m still in love with you / so much stronger too
Still in a little love / wasn’t quite enough
I’m more than I was then / a better man times ten
Because we had this dance / I’m a better man
Wish you’da wanted us / and never caught that bus
If you ever change your mind / I ain’t hard to find
I’m takin’ chances now / you showed me how
I thought we had it all / hearts made the fall
Wish stayin’d made you see / what we could be
Been travelin’ back in time / losin’ my mind
I’m takin’ one last risk / to tell you this
So hard to let you go / but still I know
For a moment, I was back there / caught between my heart and mind
Set the bottle by the bedside / and laid that photo by the phone
Never told you, never meant to / I never thought to thank you then
Can’t be sorry, not one second / for turnin’ up that Texas town
So much better, life is good now / the man I am I owe to you
You’re the one I’ll atill remember / that time ain’t gonna fade away
Every misstep moved me closer / to the man I’m meant to be
I’m still starin’ at those blue eyes / wishin’ they could see me now
Lessons learned through all those young years / that better man they talk about
Or close the door on what we’ve been
Couldn’t make it past the dreamin’
(But) I can’t shake the way that we end
It’s like jumpin’ off the deep end
Or a future place where we win
We tried so hard to believe it
You can’t stop love when it’s leavin’
And we both knew what we needed
You were gone by the first of September / All I got are the flames to remember / And baby, that ain’t bad
There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl /not one in all of this whole world /but we knew we weren’t a perfect match/ and tho you shaped my heart, it wasn’t in the cards/ but there ain’t one kiss, no not one kiss, there never was a kiss I’d wanna take back
There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl / not one in all of this whole world /
There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl / not in all of Texas, not in all of this world
And I wouldn’t miss our last act, girl
Blue eyes askin’ where this thing will go / mine were sayin’ not so fast
‘Bout to hold me while we danced slow / on the banks of the Rio Grande
How can just one simple photo / bring the memories flowin’ fast
