Diamonds made from coal/wisdom born of living/Stolen moments bring us home, to our forgotten visions
Diamonds made from coal/ wisdom born of living/ Stolen moments on our own/ Now see the good things given
Carousel slows down/ we briefly lose the madness. / Riding side by side, we couldn't feel more gladness.
Because each storm subsides/ I take the next one coming/ I bear the tumbling tides/ for moments soft and hugging
Because each storm subsides, I can take more coming. I stand the rising tides for stolen moments coming.
Torrents dying down. Hear the quiet waters. Sweet moments of one sound, our hearts' beating a chorus.
Darkened wounds on our feet, down below scarred out knees , hiding 'neath silent trees of night
In the grasp of our shame, every thrash weak and lame, reminding it's useless to fight!
And the skins that we're in scorn us as they fold , I search... for sunlight in my heart
I'm running late, for a gig that's paying great./ I've got Deja Vu -can't find my dress up shoes./ What would be lost? ( Everything has a cost) If I stayed home loafing, but had some stolen moments....
Uh oh, I'm running late , for gig that's paying great. /And I've got deja vu, - can't find my dress up shoes.
I smell the hair on your head, see lips of luscious red./The same way yesterday, but damn if I' noticed.
I'm walking with my bag of tricks : / A DISAPPEARING HANKERCHIEF, /A CUP THAT FLOATS ABOVE A STICK, / AND MAJIC CARDS THAT READ YOUR LIPS
So let's walk together / through the worse and the better
All the time that burned / it was love that I learned
And I won't take for granted / my time left on this planet
Every heartbeat reminds me / to plan my days wisely / so tomorrow'll be different /cause i took time to listen / to the dreams I still hold inside.
Each heartbeat reminds me / to live much more kindly / Not jump to conclusions / or have the illusion / that ) I know where people are at.....( This is a slight alliterative change to my lyric just below.
Every heartbeat reminds / to be much more kindly / Not jump to conclusions / or have the illusion / (that) I know where people are at.
Every heartbeat reminds me / to use my time wisely
Every heartbeat reminds me / time marches beside me / While the world spins around/ I will slow myself down / and enjoy what I already have.
Every heartbeat reminds me / life's journey goes quickly/ Mother's washing your face / then you march cross a stage / high school has come to an end
Life's a very quick journey / Mother's washing your face/ next your up an a stage / a diploma in your hand
As sure as the days's long and life is short. ( FYI had left out the word "and " from same lyric of mine submitted just below, just prior to this one
As sure as the day's long, life is short
We're here on a passport and life is short (just thought "What the hell... submit"
The past is a closed door... and life is short
Each day now I go through I'll let myself live
Take nothing for granted. Give you one extra kiss
Let go of perfection and Live and Let Live
Talk more with the old one's and listen to kids.
Learn from the heartaches, then look for the bliss
And remember each morning today is a gift
Tried to live in the moment. My mind kept on rollin' /-------(Just an idea there for a first line?
In my rearview mirror, life's highway gets clearer./ I can't go back again. It's all under the bridge./ I just write the lesson's down.
The years how I burned them , It's a tough way of learnin'/ to tell glitter from gold , to make friends with your soul /and i'm still working it out.
"Can I make the best of- the time I have left of "? / Oh it's a sliperry road, a dream takes ahold, and a year's flown by somehow.
There's choices to make each new day we're livin"/ We count on tomorrow but its not a given.
They say that life is short/ so "you better live now"/ but there's chains and claims and shame/ tying me down.
I've been to the moon / in a split second's time / One kiss, one June, / stays forever in mind
Life is short! /by the time you learn to live it. / Life's curtain's going down / when you start to "get it"'.
Oh there's no Wrong and Right - no winners and losers-just folks tryin - tryin to get by. - Sometimes I - forget it and we pay the price / and I'm never gonna change your mind
Always Push and Pull/One Side or the Other /Win or Lose /Truth or a Lie /but We Broke through / Love has no wrong or right / and I'm never gonna change your mind **Note (Push and pull ), and(One side or the other) are lines from Keith C. 's submitted lyrics.
Let's take a walk / Think we need a breather / Quit the talk / At least I'll try / I feel free/ Thanks for hearing out my side / but I'm never gonna change your mind ( still working up lyrics/ideas to combine humor, uplift things
Well) when I'm wrong / Look who's here to tell me /When I'm right / No one in sight / That's on me / preaching to you all the time /But I'm never gonna change your mind
Well, when I'm wrong / You're there right to tell me /When I'm right / No one's in sight/Wished I'd known /How to put things soft and kind / If I ever hope to change your mind ( Re - work of earlier submit today.
Well if- I'm- proved wrong / you'll surely let me know it/ /
but) If I'm Right / No one in sight/ Best to try/ speaking soft and kind / and Maybe I can change your mind.
My words lit a spark/ Now you're in a plight /"aw shucks" ain't it odd / the notion that I might, / Might just/ Might be right. (slight change from this morning lyric submit
My words lit a spark / Now you're in a plight / guess it's so, so Odd / the notion that I might , Might just/ might be right (trying for humor )
smiling in the dark / is your wiser side /ready to confer
/the notion that I might /might just/Might be right
Smiling from afar/ is your wiser side / ready to confer/ the notion that I might / might just / be right
There's the humble part/ seeking truth and light. / Never disregards / the notion that i might
The air is charged / I'll ride above the currents /
til this storm / of anger subsides /I'm ) counting on / your heart being soft and kind.../ cause I'm never gonna change your mind
So I'll speak my words /Soft and kindly / won't disturb Just drop down a line / Hope it's heard / Somewhere there deep inside / Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
So I'll speak my words! /soft and kindly / won't disturb Just drop down a line /Hope it's heard / somewhere down deep inside / Cause I'm never gonna change your mind.
So) I take a breath / to keep my heart open / do my best / seeing your side /
I was raised to see things wrong or right/ Never taught that there were shades of grey/ and I see it in the way we fight/ ...................../(I welcome idea for last line or anywhere from you collaborators)
Friendly dogs will come up close/ the nervous one's they shy away/ I'm starting to believe it's so / that something in your past makes you afraid.
Well I guess I've been just plain old wrong / I've been dreaming in the land of Oz / Like a singer crying out his song / but no one's liste'ning in those empty bars
I gaze up at the changing sky/ the clouds have took the sun away / our path is long but it's not high.. / I dream we'll understand it all one day
Well) I think I finally see the sign/ I've been living in the Land of Oz / And) only you can change your mind / And that's alway been the way it ever was.
(Well....) maybe I've been plain old Wrong! /And living in the Land of Oz / And this could be a happy song / If I accept you as you really are.
I know that if you see me cry / You'll think that I' just wanna have my way / and if I say I see your side / You'll say I'm putting on a pretty play.
Let's go for a walk outside / And try to put our thoughts away / Maybe when our hearts are quiet / We won't need a word to say
Happy Sunday. Lyrics-' Cause your heart's the place I can make an impression/Your heart's the loving kind-/Share my feelings and hope that it listens/ cause I'm... never gonna change your mind.
Re write : Cause your heart is where/I'll make my impression/ I'll show you there/ my intentions are kind. And when you know/ I'm really truly on your side / I'm hoping that you'll change your mind.
'Cause your heart is where/ I'll make my impression/ and show you my../ intentions are kind. / and When you know/ I'm really, truly on your s-i-d-e /I'm.../hoping that you'll change your mind!
I tried walking away, thinking you might follow / If I put my love on the line/ Now I'm back to stay 'cause it feels so hollow/ there's not another you I'd ever find
Oh when the rain comes 'round we share the umbrella/ when the chips are down we stick close together/ We don't sing the same song but we still harmonize.../ though I'm never gonna change your mind
Oh when the rain comes 'round we share the umbrella/ when the chips are down we stick close together/ We don't sing the same song but we still harmonize/ though I'm never gonna change your mind
Well I'm...never gonna change your mind,/
but I just can't keep it to myself. How we're never seeing eye to eye, / I can't pretend we're somewhere else.
I'm never gonna change your mind/ And I could never re-arrange
your heart's desires.
Well I'm,...never gonna change your mind/ Let's call it quits and have a glass of wine!
Well I'm,.. never gonna change your mind. Let's call it quits and have glass of wine.
