Lyric by Merilee:

"Every heartbeat reminds me/ that the mountain I'm climbing/ Is just part of the journey/ I don't need to worry/"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on Merilee's lyric:

"Really like this and how it gives me that bit of humor...still not right in how it sings.

below I've put in parenthesis the extra syllables and in the second line you need one more. there's a way to do this!! But I want you to figure it out.

Make it conversational...just like you'd say it. Lots to think about!

well I could show (you) a map
Draw you (-) a picture
Read the facts
Line by line
(but in) stead of that
How about (we have) a real good time

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on Merilee's lyric:

"Ok that's weird. sometimes I write a whole thing and when I hit submit it disappears! here I go again:

Here's a way you can rework this verse with humor and also have it fit!

I could unfold this map
Draw a little picture
State my facts
Thousands of times (taking my stand)
But I'll look back
(Knowing when the truth unwinds)
I'm never gonna change your mind

this is NOT finished but shows you all the whacky things I try...

the stuff in parenthesis are other options or lines on the way to the final lines maybe...
keep playing with it!"

Lyric by Merilee:

"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."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on Merilee's lyric:

"like the 'tryin' rhyme...but for the third line so you can have ABAB. and 10 or 11 syllables sings best for the second line"

Lyric by Merilee:

"I was never gonna change your mind, so I gave up, stopped tryin'"

My Lyrics

Written for:

  • Marti Dodson
  • Beth Nielsen Chapman
  • Clay Mills
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

No comments

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.

No comments

Every heartbeat reminds me/ the path that I'm climbing

No comments

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
Life's full of beauty
Life's not always easy

No comments

It's not always easy
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

No comments

Life's not quite behind me
Love lives on forever
We're here for each other
We're in this together
We're in this together

No comments

Tomorrow's not promised
Catch every grain of sand
This world's always changing

No comments

The world's always turning
Learn to follow my heart
Won't let you cry alone
(And or I'll) cry when I need to
And cherish what we have
Don't wait 'til it's too late
Like a fleeting sunset
Leave no room for regrets

No comments

Make mem'ries that matter
Make each day a treasure
Embrace what love offers (thank you, Keith)
Try to give even more
Embrace what life offers
Like there's no tomorrow
Make time for what matters
Without hesitation
Embrace what comes my way
Take in every moment
Breathe in each moment
Be present each moment
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 /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.

No comments

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
So I unfold my map
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.
Well I could show you a map- Draw you a picture- Read the facts, line by line- but what's the point- I'd just be wasting our time, cause I'm never gonna change your mind!
I'm never gonna change your mind, I see the flames burnin'in your eyes.
I was never gonna change your mind, you're the type that holds (onto) a grudge. So I finally gave up, quit tryin', and decided to depend on luck.
You're never gonna change my mind, the last time was the very last time.
I'm never gonna change your mind, but I thought you'd like to know...
