To hear another voice traveling through the air
We'll make it through the chaos / We won't let nothing come between us
If love can save us / Let's make it contagious
Gone away so long / Now I'm coming home
New recruits, polished boots / Standing tall, marching on
We steal the key, escape the misery / Breaking free to the light, a moment so beautiful
Break free from your chains, see the light, feel the love / Breathe in this moment, breathe in this moment
I'll make it last a little longer when we kiss
I'll seal our love with a never ending kiss
I hope I'm not too late I know that I can't wait / Gonna catch and hold on before these days are gone build it strong and show you how
(Line 1) I hope it's not too late / I know that I can't wait
I don't want you to cry when I die / You can just remember me
We grew up that summer / I still wonder
Lost but not forgotten / A part of who I am
I've got that feeling once again / And this time it may never end
Or hide a heart that takes a beating
It fades away but never leaves you
Til the end you keep believing
Breaks your heart and leaves you reeling
I'd do it all again / I'd do it all again / Ain't one kiss I'd wanna take back
Fireworks bursting in the sky / Oh my how did that time fly
There ain't one kiss I'd take back girl / You can take it to the bank girl
There ain't one kiss I'd take back girl / You put me on the right track girl
You'll always be my little Texas love shack Girl
My Queen of Diamonds / You were always blackjack girl
The times we left behind / Forever etched in my mind
The times we left behind / Forever etched on my mind
I don't feel bad for what we had and I'm not sad
I still feel my heart breaking but I wouldn't change a thing ... cause there aint
I found a way to let go of our love long ago ... but there aint
It could be worth a thousand words / But not "I Love You" anymore
Those carefree days and endless nights / All we knew was it felt so right
I'm Better At Love Because Of You
I'm Better At Love After You
Our Love Faded Like My Blues Jeans
(You Had) "The Smile of Dennis Quaid"
I remember when it was our time / I was yours and you were mine
Can't wait, 'til we do this all again
and I, am so lucky to have found
and I, am so happy to have found
Hearts, together beating / I, can't stop believing
You, make me love the heat / We're, moving to the beat
Heat, burning with desire / Girl, let's take this higher
Heat, burning with desire / Girl, let's light this fire
Living in .../ Paradise .... (with)
Two bodies / Into one
Our bodies / Together
Living life / Like I do .... (with)
Wrapped around you / Wrapped around me
Wrapped in you / Wrapped in me
Kissing you / Kissing me
Others can look / I get to touch / They say it's not fair / That I have someone so fine / (Yeah) Someone so rare
Someone so rare / But I know it's true / Cause I'm lying here with you
Someone so rare / I'm walking on air / This feeling with you nothing compares
I do swear / You're the one
Searching high / Searching low
Finding you / Dream come true
Here with you / Dream come true
What a night / Feels so right
How'd I find / One so fine
I'm searching through the lines of your golden tan / Thinking how lucky I am to be your man
Some people like silver, some people like gold / I know one thing for sure, you're a sight to behold
I always used to know what to say / When a pretty lady walked my way
She's giving it all she's got / Everything we do for her means a lot
She's giving it all she's got / Cause each and everyday means a lot
All her hopes, and her dreams / Will light the way to a brighter day
All her hopes, and her dreams/ Will lead the way to a brighter day
All her hopes, and her dreams / Will lead the way to a better day
Have the time of your life / Everything will be alright / When you believe ..... and make a wish
Make a wish full of love / You'll shine as bright as the stars above
You are strong, beautiful / Amazing in everything you do / And we believe in you
Make a wish, make it now / No matter where, no matter how
Give her the power to make a wish / She'll feel stronger by the hour, it's what she needs, she needs
Give her the power to make a wish / She'll feel stronger by the hour, by the hour
Always looking on the bright side she enjoys the morning sun / Dreaming of her big plans for better days to come
She's not used to the easy way / But she's got places to go, people to meet and games to play
My life's a wild ride, got its ups and its downs / I'm gonna hold on tight with a smile not a frown
Crystal clear summer night, a billion stars in the sky / We hold each other tight and I close my eyes
"Healing Heart Highway"
Your spirit is lifted but your head's in the clouds / Her voice pulls you closer but you still have your doubts
The beauty of our love I cannot deny / Do I hold on or should I say goodbye?
Gotta stop dragging this ball and chain / No more excuses and spreading the blame
I might forgive, I might forget / I just can't say anything yet
But I'm okay, I'm doing fine / Cause I'm moving on, moving on without you
My engine runs but I can't hide / A thousand miles of memories to leave behind
The sun fades your photograph out of my mind / A thousand miles of memories to leave behind
Someone does you wrong, it happens everyday / You're not the only one to ever feel this way
It's time to start your engine and don't look back / Find a new direction off the beaten path
You think this hurt that you feel will last forever / But that would be a long long time to make things better
It's too easy living in the past / Always looking back while time is passing fast
It's too easy to get stuck in the past / Always looking back while time is passing fast
You can hold on tight but you can't control / What tears at your heart and takes your soul
It's so hard to rise up when you don't understand / There's no one to reach out and give you a hand
Feel the pain and sorrow, let the cuts run deep / Find a way to let go, or they'll be yours to keep
Thinking of you still breaks my heart / Day after day it's another bad start
Thinking of you still tears me apart / Day after day it's another bad start
Filling up with anger, stirring in the pain / Feeling stuck in quicksand, inside my brain
I could sit down and write you a letter / You'll never read it might make me feel better
Rise above, feel the love / Worlds apart come together
We’re rising up / Higher and higher (MariaJack) / Hope shining brighter (MariaJack) / It’s a beautiful sight (MariaJack)
Shine the light / It's a beautiful night
We're got the power / of the sun / for everyone
We're rising up / Higher and higher (MariaJack) / Hope shining brighter (MariaJack) / It's a beautiful night
We're getting stronger every day (repeated)
Every night we're brighter than the night before
Shining bright, like a shooting star / Every night, brighter than the night before
Tho the burden is heavy, we're gonna get by / The stronger we become, the higher we fly
The journey's beginning, a long way to go / Our hope is eternal, let (the) love glow
Oh we sure have our troubles, day after day / When the darkness falls, we rise and find our way
Beauty in motion / Into the night
Lifting the world out of darkness (smiley lizard) / A magnificent sight (Paul Goerke) - a tag team lyric from his or hers earlier line. Not sure what sex the lizard is.
Beauty in motion / Angels in flight
Like the rainbow we rise / As the clouds become sun
Scattered lives torn apart / Join together as one
Shine the light on you / Shine the light on me / I know our bond is true / When we rise, we rise together
With you, with you, with you we rise together.
Share the light with a friend / Make a wish the night will never end
When you see the sparkle in the children's eyes / You can tell it's a place where hope survives
The moon looking down feels your pain and your sorrow / May your spirit have hope for a brighter tomorrow
We have warm sunshine, a gentle breeze, we'll make you smile / If you stay, with us, for a while
I woke up yesterday dreaming of tomorrow / Now I'm living day to day fighting through the pain and sorrow
I'm like you, yes I am. I just think a little bit differently.
Help bring out the light that shines inside of me.
Frantic Fool
I find my escape / Sharpening the images of each new memory I make (instead)
Thirty-nine thousand feet of first class relaxation / Smiling my way to my hand-picked destination
Now I wander free in my own direction / No longer chained to your perfection
Locked in the dark musty dungeons of my mind / Grand illusions of a freedom I can't find / A thousand keys scattered on the floor / Begging me to open this cold steel door
What am I to do without you? / Without you nothing to do
It's nothing but why, why, why
Mirror mirror on the wall / I (we) got nothing to fear I'm (we're) standing tall
I've got a lot of time to think / But not enough to see my shrink
It's time to dance at the party / Find some romance at the party
There's no turning back, I'm taking one step forward / I can't keep standing around, feeling awkward
I'm a rhyming fool, kicked out of school / And now my butt is black and blue
I hide behind this curtain, only flesh and blood / They come to me uncertain, say their life's a dud
I'm shattered, I'm battered, Kentucky fried / You lunge for a taste, but I run and I hide
You see me, you feel me, but I'm not there / Your eyes drill right through me, why do you stare?
I'm a deer in the headlights frozen in time / They got my photograph at the scene of the crime
Some people say I have it easy / Till they feel my sweaty palm and see me looking queasy
I try to be calm but its not easy / Cause I got sweaty palms and I'm feeling queasy
I know it's bad when I can't remember what day it is / I sometimes wonder how I got to be like this
New sunrise, beautiful day / Our love is here to stay
Come on in, let's take a ride / You and I, side by side
Step by step, I walk with you / There's nothing we can't do
I can feel a silence / That's not what we're about / Got to get the music playing / So we can rock, you can rock it, out!
We're taking on the fight / Till we knock it out of sight
We're gonna stand together / Cause we are friends forever
Don't you know we want you sticking around? / So now's the time to put our feet on the ground
You closed your eyes again / But the picture didn't change / You had your cup of coffee / But today it tasted strange
As soon as the doctor broke the news / You know the battle is on its win or lose
It could be you, it could be me / We thought our life would be carefree
Show Them The Way
It's our life to live, no one's taking it away / It's our love to give, cause we found a better way
Let's make a new world where the children laugh and play / We'll give them hope to find a better way
We'll teach the children how to write a song / And bring the whole world in to sing along
Sometimes we don't agree and we don't see eye to eye / It won't be easy but we have to try
(Inspired by Dan's line who was inspired by GT's line) We'll make it through the darkness / And see the light to a better way
Some want to love, some want to hate / Let's get this right, there's no time to wait
Some want to love, some want to hate / Let's get this right, there's no time to wait
Memories made, forever to keep / Will we remember, when we're back from our sleep?
Touch my hand and this dream will be ours / First stop is the moon and then we fly to the stars
I can feel my soul, it's burning with desire / It's taking control, lifting me up higher
Is this a dream? It's an alien attack / It's time to scream cause we, can't turn back
Sometimes it seems like it was yesterday / But it was long ago and so far away
I remember our walk on that cold winter's night / I held your hand and you had yours in mine / We slipped and fell into each other / We kissed and gazed up at the endless sky
Closer and closer, faster and faster / This could be a disaster / Gravitational waves is the answer.
Round and round two black holes go / For billions of years or so.
You just might wonder what the buzz is all about / I'll try to explain but it might freak you out.
I follow Albert Einstein on Twitter ever since I heard the news.
Our Time To Fly
Just got time, oh baby / Just got time, for you and I
I don't want our ride to be over / We've come too far, to turn and walk away (Hey Hey Hey)
Near or far, choose a destination / You're my star and my fascination
Ain't got time for your indecision / The countdown's on, no turning back, just hold on tight
Cast away your doubt / It's time to rock-it out
This time, our love will be stronger / We only need to give it time
This time, I think we can make it / Can't give up, we gotta try
There's so much to win / But even more for us to lose
This time let's try to get it right / And get back to the time we held each other tight
I don't want our game to be over / I won't give up, turn and walk away
Together we can find the answers / And someday soon we'll be ok
We don't have to wait until tomorrow / Let's start moving forward today
They say our love was just infatuation / And that the good times would never last
Can't give you any more explanation / There's nothing left for us to say
Rudolph You Don't Have To Put On The Red Light
A Tasty Delight Saves Christmas
A Tasty Delight Before Christmas
"Mrs. Claus has left you and you live all alone" / "You've been replaced by a new holiday called DELIVERY BY DRONE" / The children they all chase them like a dog to a bone / If there's nothing for them they moan and they groan / They take what they can get they have no choice / No letters to write they have no voice
Hey Bunny "We've been to the past and the present now that was so easy" / "You better suck in your tummy Santa this last stop might make you queasy" / Into the future they went not yet fifteen years out / Christmas lights had long since faded without a doubt
Surely and swiftly they traveled through time / Entering houses like partners in crime / Scenes from the past would begin to be unfold / Right there before them Santa's story was told
Old Santa replied, Stories, my young self, I could tell (you) a few / And this elf (here) and that elf (there) could add some too!
(I see) A red-nosed reindeer, now isn't that weird? / And when did I start growing a beard?
Young Santa said I must be you and you must be me / Neither you nor me knows how that can be.
She had a degree in psychology (or elfology) / She loved playing board games, her favorite was Monopoly.
Out popped a beautiful elf named Holly / Her job was to make Santa once again jolly.
By now it was clear Santa's life was an elfin mess / He could no longer handle the Christmas time stress.
What was inside the box he had not a clue / Then out hopped a magical Christmas kangaroo!
But December made him quiver / With the joy from every toy he'd deliver.
He's been watching you and knows what you did last summer / That might be cool but for you it's a bummer.
He's got magic dust but he don't get high / It's just the stuff that makes his reindeer fly.
Dear Santa, hmmm... something doesn't add up. I know you didn't mean to screw up. Dear Santa, I've always been so good.
His momma always hoped he would be a good boy. On the day he was born he brought her happiness and joy.
Let your imagination run wild. Live with the wonder of a child.
So come aboard with me, cause here you always ride for free. On this magic road called life.
There's no toll to pay, and never a ticket to buy. Best of all you can ride it everyday.
I close my eyes but I can still see. I wonder where this road will take me.
I feel the warmth of a distant fire.
I'm feeling poor but not quite broke.
I'm coming to a fork in the road. Now I have a choice to make.
My wheels are spinning and I'm moving on. Can't tell where I'm heading only know where I've gone.
It's now or never, it's do or die. Can we save our love, and give it one more try?
It's our last chance to get this thing right. Otherwise I don't think I can stand another night.
It's time to come home now, I don't have all night long. Another late arrival, I should have known all along.
A part of me says we can work things out. The rest of me wants to scream and shout.
When I first met you, we would talk and laugh all night. Getting lost in hopes and dreams till the morning light.
Why do we always collide?
Come on. Even you must know it's true.
There's a new beginning on the horizon. My daughter, my son.
When the silence ends, I will not leave you behind. My brother, my sister, my friend.
But I have to let go, what we could have had we'll never know.
There will be no champagne kisses with you anymore.
When we first met, you were friendly and warm.
You must be the worst Driver at Daytona.
There's no disguise for your passion for lies.
If you don't play nice / You better think, think twice / Cause I'm fightin' fire with ice / I'm fightin' fire with ice
In the nick of time, I pulled that one out / Now what the heck, are they talkin' about.
It's time for you to move along, but you just can't quit.
This ain't no old fashioned country song. Do you get it?
You keep spreading your lies, you always criticize, you're going to cut (cut, cut) me deep.
You stirred me up put me under your spell, you stared me down but I couldn't tell / You weren't there for me, you didn't care for me.
I used to like everything about you / And you used to like everything about me, about me.
Night or day, near or far, wherever you are. I close my eyes, I close my eyes.
I wake up at night in a cold, cold sweat. / Walking on a tightrope without a net.
Mile after mile, day after day.
Our heads are in the clouds not getting wet.
Near or far, together, or apart.
I'll give you my heart, my soul, my mind / I'll feel your spirit like you feel mine.
Will you come aboard and jump right in? / We have a great adventure to begin.
I say give it (us) forever and a day.
I have my reasons, for you to stay / But all you want, is to get away.
This unopened letter, will be forever sealed, never ever to be revealed. / All I had to say, couldn't bring back the way, we used to feel.
(get you to come around). I sent this, with so much, anticipation. Today it was returned, no reply, no explanation.
And even though I can't have you any longer / I begin to feel that I'm so much stronger.
The seasons come and go. How else was I to know?
To me you'll always be / My (one and) only mystery / My unopened letter.
Can't solve the mysteries of this unopened letter.
Help it to heal better.
Touched us for the better.
To live on forever.
We held tight together.
Meant to last forever.
You had to run away.
Our last kiss has been blown.
Make me as cold as stone.
Make me feel so alone.
And I can't look back anymore.
And I can only look (turn) away.
I had no explanation, for the tears I cried. I should have known long ago, our love had died.
Sometimes it seems all the doors are closed. How can I find out what the future holds?
Completely written but not yet read. Thoughts of wonder wander through my (your) head.
Hoping things get better. I wrote this letter.
(I'm) hoping things get better. I wrote (you) a letter.
