Stars are shining bright, a boundless sea of diamonds, dancing in an endless sky, with brilliant new horizons.
Stars begin to fade, the midnight sky is blushing, once again nature proves that, heaven and earth are touching.
Breaking of the dawn, a clear path lies before us,
Courage rises up, our voices become stronger, we join the world in chorus, as shadows run for cover.
Such a brilliant sight, endless illumination, the world is shining brighter, than all my expectations.
Fix my gaze on you, the hero in my story, no one else reveals the truth, like you in all your glory.
Images of you, some secrets can't be spoken, close my eyes and fade into, the memories we've woven.
Leaving time, finding space, Imagination has it’s place, dreams are meant, to survive, and stolen moments keep the dreams alive.
Leaving time, finding space, Imagination has it's place, dreams are meant to survive, and stolen moments keep the dreams alive.
We rise with renewed faith, we’ve been tried and tested, stolen moments give us strength, to face the unexpected.
We rise with renewed faith, we've been tried and tested, stolen moments give us grace, to face the unexpected.
With confidence and faith, we shift our direction, stolen moments give us grace, to follow our intentions.
We rise to face our fears, overcome resistance, we know what we're doing here, embracing our existence.
We raise our voice as one, join the world in chorus, we fought the fight and won, let's claim the prize before us.
We rise to face our fears, light exposed the darkness, obstacles have disappeared, we see the path before us.
We raise our voice as one, join the earth in chorus, we fought the fight and won, let's claim the prize before us.
We rise to take our place, while the world is spinning, stolen moments give us grace, to start a new beginning.
We rise to face our fears, light exposed the darkness, everything is bright and clear, the path is lush and endless.
Rising up to face our fears, overcome resistance, we know what we're doing here, embracing our existence.
We may not know our fate, but we keep on tryin', stolen moments give us wings, it's time to take off flyin'.
Clouds begin to move, the sky is open, nothing left to prove, in this stolen moment.
Walking in the light, illuminates the senses, stepping out of time, we lay down our defenses.
Take a deeper breath, let the mem'ries gather, release regrets, they don't really matter.
Silhouettes appear, figures smiling, playing, memories so clear, a past worth saving.
A voice from inside, screams hope has not died, it's shrouded, and clouded, from time.
Deeds left undone, songs left unsung, taunt us, and haunt us, tonight.
Will despair, and regret, pave the road ahead, or will grace, guide the way through the night?
(When) dread, and regret, cause us to forget, the sun will not dawn without the night.
Lying sleepless in my bed, demons race in to defend their space inside my over-thinking head.
News of war, and unrest, weigh heavy on my chest, trying to catch my breath isn't easy.
In the silence of the night, I hear the chaos in my mind, resolve to get some sleep, if I can find, a way to leave the day behind.
Stepping back, leaving time, shake the chaos from my mind, release the stain (or pain), live again, stolen moments keep me sane.
Leaving time, finding space, stolen moments keep me sane.
Leaving time, stepping out, the sun on my face, I'm in another place, as I embrace this stolen moment.
I steal a moment to re-connect, think and feel, re-direct, nagging thoughts that cause me pain, stolen moments keep me sane.
I steal a moment, to reconnect, to think and feel, to re-direct, my wayward thoughts, cause me pain, stolen moments keep me sane.
Rest is calling out to me, can I afford the luxury, of wasting time, letting go, stealing silence, will I lose control?
Lying sleepless in my bed, demons racing to defend their space inside my over-thinking head, it's time to put them down to rest
There's no space between us/ Right now we are timeless.
So I want to tell you/just how much I love you!
Let's make more mem'ries/ while the clock's still moving.
Before time passess/let's dance all the dances.
Let's enjoy this moment/ 'Cause we can't relive it.
Let's write our story/And share it proudly
Every time you hold me/ we're making hist'ry
So I'll feel each moment/not afraid to own it!
How can I regret any moment that led to you standing beside me today
Every heartbeat reminds me/ Today's not behind me
Every heartbeat reminds me/ we're all on this journey/we lead or we follow/to get to tomorrow/to be with each other again.
Every heartbeat reminds me/ the path that's behind me/ has been walked out by others/who struggled and suffered/ when their world came tumble-ing down.
Every heartbeat reminds me/ the path that's behind me/ carried teardrops and laughter/ And sometimes an answer/ to the questions I couldn't let go.
Every heartbeat reminds me/ the path that I'm climbing
Every heartbeat reminds me/ the path that's behind me. Carried mem'ries of sorrow, and hope for tomorrow/But nothing was written in stone
Every heartbeat reminds me/ that the mountain I'm climbing/ Is just part of the journey/ I don't need to worry/
Every heartbeat reminds me/ There's someone beside me
There is HOPE for tomorrow/ I just need to follow....
There is how for tomorrow/ so I'll learn to follow
Life's not just behind me
Life's not quite behind me
We're here for each other
Catch every grain of sand
This world's always changing
The world's always turning
(And or I'll) cry when I need to
Don't wait 'til it's too late
Leave no room for regrets
Make mem'ries that matter
Embrace what love offers (thank you, Keith)
Make time for what matters
Embrace what comes my way
Take time for family, and make time for friends
Keep every promise I made to myself.
Stop by for a visit, make time for us.
End my good byes with a hug and a kiss
(2nd couplet) The past may be gone/But my will remains strong.
I know I can't go back/And find what I once had/if I could I would run/And before that day's done/You'd be the jewel in my crown.
I know I can't go back/ To change what I could have
I'm alive and I'm breathin '/yeah that's enough reason/to promise myself that somehow
Stuck again in the evening traffic/how much longer can I keep at this?
Tucked away in the bedroom closet/ memories in cardboard boxes/ marked 'My Life'/'My Life'.
You know I'm not the betting kind / And I'm never gonna change your mind!
(Keithcurtis) Well you hide your self/
Never mind the reasons/
Feel the felt/
Bet on the line/
(Merilee) Grab the dice/
Throw ‘em for a hopeless ride/(BNC)
And I’m never gonna change your mind.
(PatriciaA) So I show my cards / Lay ’em on the table/(Merilee) Time to fold/lay it all down /(keithcurtis)You check your hand / (Merilee) hoping that you're right this time.
(So I show my cards / Lay ’em on the table – PatriciaA)/ Will you fold/ Are you all in (brief, suspenseful pause) / You grab the dice/ And throw em for a HOPELESS ride! I’m never gonna change your mind.
(So I show my cards / Lay ’em on the table - PatriciaA)/ Will you fold/ Are you all in (brief, suspenseful pause) / You grab the dice/ And throw em for another ride! I’m never gonna change your mind.
So I show my cards / Lay ’em on the table (PatriciaA)/ Will you fold/ Are you all in /Winner takes all /or maybe we'll share the prize! But I'm never gonna change your mind.
I rest my case / Think I won you over/ (But) for Love's sake/ I'll call it a tie/ let's just stop/(and) Save it for another time. 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind.
I rest my case/ Hope I won you over / Either way/ Time to move on/ You and I have better ways to spend our time/ And I'm never gonna change your mind!!
So I rest my case/ Think I won you over/ Either way/ let's call it a day/ we can find/ a better way to spend our time/ And I'm never gonna change your mind!
So I rest my case/ Think I won you over/ Either way/ (It's) time to move on/ You and I/ should spend our time being kind. Cause I'm never gonna change your mind!
Now I'll rest my case/ Take a little breather/(A) change of pace/(and) we'll be alright.
So I rest my case/ Take a little breather
In the middle of your heart/Hidden out of sight/There's a little part/Captured by the light/Revealing to the dark/The notion that I might...
In the middle of your heart/ hidden out of sight/ bullseye('s) in the dark/ reason shines a light/ hoping to impart/the notion that I might....
In the middle of your heart/hidden out of sight/ you feel a little spark/ reason shines a light/revealing to the dark/ the notion that I might/ might just/ might be right
Lookin' for a ray of hope, just a simple glance will do. It's not seein' eye to eye I know, but certainly the start of something new.
I'm searching for a ray of hope, (And) Watching for the slightest chance, to really let our love light glow, let's forget our disagreements and dance!
You and I are so alike, It took awhile to figure that out. When we share a laugh and smile, we forget what we were fusin' about.
Verse 3 re-Work using same phrases: I could state my case, try to win you over, scream and pace, tangled in pride, what a waste, to argue till the end of time.
You and I are so alike, Surprised we couldn't figure that one out. When you flash that killer smile, I forget what we were talking about.
(Edit) Fire away! Hope I hit the bullseye, what we say, shouldn't tear us apart. I'll follow the high road and swallow my foolish pride, 'cause I'm never gonna change your mind!
Fire away! Going for the bullseye. What we say, shouldn't tear us apart. I'm gonna take the high road and swallow my pride, cause I'm never gonna change your mind.
