Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"You can do that...but I tend to shy away from having more than one hook...but it's not out of the question!"

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"Maybe at the end of this B section, or even on the Outro, say "am I ever gonna change your mind." Would make it a little more hopeful at the end."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"I like the direction of "we'll always be together" ..this last chorus should feel uplifing I think..."

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"(but) you’re my friend / we’ll always be together / though I can’t bend / when you start to lie / but you can depend / on me to always treat you kind / but I’m never gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"this is imaginative too...but I'm not a fan of telling another person about them in a song...it would be taking us away from the spirit of love and humor that we want in this section. Kind of playfully saying in essence "hey deep down you know I could possibly be right!" without being a know-it-all in how we say it! sort of with a wink! "

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"But in the middle of your heart / hidden out of sight / is a nasty scar / that didn’t heal right / it makes it so hard / for you to see I might / might just / might be right (I changed her last line slightly to make more sense with my 3 lines)"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"I like the imagination here...but fireFLY the accent would be on fly and that pulls at the seams. so far every line in this song is seamless with the melody...so we gotta keep that going!"

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"is a little jar / with a firefly / lighting up the dark / with the notion..."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"LOVE "I'm not about to give up hope""

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"It really just goes to show / Sometimes things don’t always go as planned / (I’m) not about to give up hope / Life’s too short to hate your fellow man"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"Hang in there kennymac! This song will reveal it's full purpose as we unfold it through all sorts of possibilities!

Here's my take on your verse Steve---not meant to be final lines but want to show you the rhythm as it needs to scan into the melody:

Well there are birds of love
singing in the mountains
(singing in the rafters? morning? )
hawks and doves
Diving in flight
And I can trust
even if I think I'm right
and I’m never gonna change your mind


"

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"Well there’s birds of love / singing songs of peace / and birds of war / bringing death and fright / hawks and doves / passing by in their flight / and I’m never gonna change your mind"

"interesting doors this takes us through!"

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"Well there’s birds of love / singing songs of peace / and birds of war / bringing death and fright / hawks and doves / together in the bright, blue sky / and I’m never gonna change your mind"

"Lines 2 and 4 don't scan w the melody though..."

""on the same side"....good!"

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"Well, you live and learn / We used to tell each other / We’re in this together / We’re both on the same side / Now you’re so sure / that I’m not one of your kind / and I’m never gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"remember who this character is...the same person that said just in the first verse "I'll love you anyway"...Like the word lost...

I could get so lost
trying to convince you
(but the) lines get crossed
and...................("I" rhyme here)"

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"Well, I could break it off / say that I don’t know you / Tell you to get lost / I ain’t got the time (lines 1-4)"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"fits perfectly! "

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"I'm aiming for the middle of your heart"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"This feels like a line on the way to the line...very close...how about:

I'm never gonna change your mind
So I'm shooting for the middle of your heart"

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / So I’ll hit you in the middle of your heart"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on SteveH's lyric:

"Love how "middle of my heart" fits the back end of the second line perfectly. And the idea of it inspires more exploration...

"so I'll draw a" pulls at the seams of the melody. Looks good on paper but needs to sing.

How can you get that front end to fit as well as the back end?

Here are some examples of options...I play a lot with options and then poof! something comes that's undeniable! (eventually)

"I'm never gonna change your mind
So I'm shooting for the middle of your heart"

now think of 5 more options! "

"Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / So I’ll draw a line down the middle of my heart"

"Very conversational"

(more)
Lyric by SteveH:

"I was heading out / You were heading in / We got to drinking / We got to talking / Never thought in a million years that you would walk in - A bottle of wine / It’s been a long time / How are you doing / What’s been happenin’ / I need to tell you some things that I couldn’t back then"

Like night and day, sun and shade / You make me better in every way
Before you, I was just making do / Before I knew, I was made for two
Never ever, never say never / 'Cause one plus one, equals two together
I was never ever any good with numbers / but I know one and one make the two in to-gether
Two hearts joined in love / Two lives joined as one
Two lips meeting, two hearts beating, as one
Two hands, two arms, two lips, two hearts
Two lives becoming one / A new path has begun
Two lives becoming one / A new path has begun
Two hands, two arms, two lips, two hearts
Two lips meeting, two hearts beating, as one
No one could ever separate us / Nothing will ever get in the way of
Nothing could ever separate us / Now I'll never underestimate love
Now there's nothing that can break us apart / As you hold onto my hand and my heart
(Now) we're stronger together than apart / As you hold onto my hand and my heart
Now everything is different in my world / Better than I’d ever have wished for
Now everything is different in my world / All the puzzle pieces fit together
Now everything is better in my world / Better than I’d ever have wished for
Now everything is better in my world / All the puzzle pieces fit together
Now every time our two lips meet / I realize I found someone who gets me
Now every time our two lips meet / I can feel a skip in my heartbeat
You fill in all my empty spaces / With every one of your embraces
Now it's so much better together / Everything can stay like this forever
Sitting together in a loveseat / Sharing every one of our dreams
Sitting together in a loveseat / Sharing every one of our feelings
Sometimes my heart forgets, life without you, 'Cause it was made for two
Every day and night with you feels brand new, Yeah, they were made for two
Like coffee and mornings / An eagle and soaring
Like coffee and daybreak / Apple pie and homemade
Like coffee and daybreak / syrup and hotcakes
Like night leads into the dawn / Morning dew on the lawn
A picture in a locket / Love note in a pocket
Long walks in the moonlight / Holding hands, kissing goodnight
Like toes in the sand, a woman and a man / Hearts and hands and wedding bands
Like loveseats and front porch swings / Two hands and wedding rings (could also do friendship rings if don't want to make them mention marriage)
Like a backseat on an empty street / When we didn't have enough money to make ends meet
Like long walks in the moonlight / holding hands, kissing goodnight
Why should we ever have to compromise
Why shouldn't we be living our best life
We could be together the rest of our lives
And I've noticed everything good in life... (is made for two...)
Yeah, and I gotta have you to be mine
I was the only one made for you / & everything good in life is made for two
That there's a one in lonely, that's true / But only in to-gether is a two
What meant for each other even meant / Now I wouldn’t do, anything different
I'm afraid to go outside in all of this / But if I don't I'll die of loneliness
The world was spinning before I got out of bed / Wheels of confusion turning in my head
Is anyone else feeling the way I am / Can this really be a part of some grander plan
Does anyone else feel the way I do / Seems like every day there's more bad news
Spread it like a virus / Don't let the hate divide us
You and me, will be courageous / The world will see, it's not outrageous / They will find us, showing kindness / It's contagious
We can be, contagious / The world will see, we're courageous / You and me, up on the stages / They will find us, showing kindness / It's contagious
Out In The Open
What Do We Have To Lose?
A Chance To Start Again
A Chance To Start Over
Finding Out What Matters
Are We There Yet?
Virtual Hugs
Closer Than They Appear (A play on the ojects in mirror may be closer than they appear, maybe like people on our computer are closer than they appear)
Extended Family
And when we finally get to go out again, Let’s live by the lessons we have learned / Let’s come together that’s the only way to win, and never ever go back to the way we were
One way, is all that's left to take / One world, with everything at stake
One way, is all that's left to take / One world, learning from our mistakes
One day, we'll take a leap of faith / One hope, to learn from our mistakes
One goal, to make a better life / One soul, if we can all unite
One day, we'll take a leap of faith / One hope, to learn from our mistakes
One day, we'll take a leap of faith / That's when, we'll learn from our mistakes
One goal, to make a better life / One soul, if we can all unite
One hope, to live in harmony / Once chance, to be all we can be
One goal, to live in harmony / One chance, to be all we can be
Try not to let it get you down / Open your eyes and look around
We have to put our differences aside / It's the only way we're gonna win this fight
But it's gonna get better / We're all in this together
Sometimes I just want to go back to bed / But there's a brighter day up ahead
But times like these bring out the best in us / Hate and anger make way for hope and trust
The farther they try to keep us apart / The closer that I hold you to my heart
The farther they keep us apart / The closer I hold you to my heart / We shouldn’t be scared / Our love should be shared / Don't give in to fear
The farther they keep us apart / The closer I hold you to my heart / We shouldn’t be scared / Our love should be shared / The enemy is fear
Times like these bring out the best in us / But they also bring anger and distrust / How’d we get so lost? / Safe but at what cost? / Don’t give in to fear
I don't know what's all the commotion, we've been divided long before this / If distance was an emotion, it would look a lot like loneliness
How did we get so lost along the way / Seems like it didn't happen in just one day
The farther they try to keep us apart / The closer you are to my heart
I’m sorry I can’t come out and play / They told me to stay in today
I’m sorry I cannot come out and play / They told me to stay in today
How did we get so lost? / It didn't happen overnight
They say times like these bring out the best in all of us / But all I can see right now is fear and distrust
And if you want to try, to walk by yourself / I’ll be by your side, if you want my help / and if you need me to, I will carry you
And when you remember, the times we weren't together, don't forget that's no longer true / I will carry you
So, the next time you're feeling down / Like there's no one around / Turn to me and I'll be there, to carry you
When you’re weary and need rest, overcome by loneliness, I will carry you
When you're feeling depressed, with thoughts you can't express, I will carry you
When you're weary and need rest, overtaken by loneliness, I will carry you
When you're feeling all alone, I will take you home, I will carry you
Now that you're back with me, you are finally free, I will carry you
Now that you're with me, you are finally free, I will carry you
Now that you're finally here, You have nothing more to fear, I will carry you
Now that you're finally home, You're no longer alone, I will carry you
You were always so proud, but let me help you now, I will carry you
Safe inside my arms, nothing can go wrong, I will carry you
In case you didn't know, you are my hero, I will carry you
I'll lift you so high, you can touch the sky, I will carry you
It's my turn this time, I'll help you cross the finish line, I will carry you
I won't ever let you down, You'll never touch the ground, I will carry you
As the wind carries the breeze, making music in the trees, reminding us we're free
As the day carries the night, puts it to bed, turns out the light
Like a good night’s sleep carries your dreams / Takes them to places they’ve never been / Gives you the peace that you need
Like the sky carries the clouds, they seem to hover there somehow, never coming down
Like a good night’s sleep carries your dreams / Takes them to places they’ve never been
Like the night carries the day, allowing the sun to light the way, while hiding humbly in the shade
Like a bear cares for its cub, I'll watch you like a hawk but be gentle as a dove
On my shoulders I'll lift you high, so you can touch the sky
It's my turn to make you proud, so let me help you now
It's my turn this time, I'll help you cross the finish line
Like a mother carries her child, soft and tender all the while, filled with such pride
Like an eagle carries its young, off in the setting sun, I will never let you down
Merry Christmas, all / Happy Holidays ?
In case you didn't know / You are my hero
You were always proud / but let me help you now
You showed me how to fly / I could touch the sky
Now those days are gone / My turn to be strong
Safe inside your arms / Nothing could go wrong
Always there for me / Now I'm here for you
You spoke to me, told me about peace and war / and you taught me many things, Oh, you were so strong
You spoke to me, when the summer winds were warm / told me to believe in my dreams, and it would make me strong
You walked with me, took me to the ocean’s shore / Looked back on God’s majesty, as the waves crashed around
You walked with me, took me to the ocean’s shore / Looked back on God’s majesty, felt like I belonged
You walked with me, took me to the ocean’s shore / Looked back on God’s majesty, felt like nothing could go wrong
On your shoulders, felt like I could touch the sky / Now that those days are over, I will help you fly
On your shoulders, felt like I could touch the sky / In the days that I grew older, you taught me how to fly
You sheltered me, in a world full of harm / You went to face the enemy, you were always so strong
You sheltered me, from a world full of harm / You went to face the enemy, you always were so strong
Each day was new, seemed like it would never end / but the stronger that I grew, I knew there'd come a time when...
Each day was new, you lifted me up again / And the stronger that I grew, I knew it had to end
Time flew by, I turned around, you were gone / Across the oceans and the sky, you took the danger on
Now it’s my turn, to take the burden off of you / To use all that I have learned, and help you make it through
You made me, into the man I am today / You supported all my dreams, you kept the wolves at bay
You made me, into the man that I am now / You lifted me as high as I could be, never looking down
I carried you, on the day that you came home / in the early morning dew, past the wreath on the lawn
I carried you, on the day that you came home / in the early morning dew, it’s my turn to be strong
I was safe and sound, in your loving arms / I thought you’d always be around, but now those days are gone
Life was easy, with me safe inside your arms / So innocent and carefree, nothing could go wrong
Then you went away, to a distant foreign shore / Though you said you wanted to stay, you heard the call to arms
You shouldered our burden, ran into the fire / In a world uncertain, you did what was required
In a world full of questions you didn’t ask why / You knew the answer was live free or die
Weak are the many, but brave are the few / While you were sleeping, they looked out for you
The first thing a hero says is I’m not a hero, I just did what anyone else would do, They’re always the first ones in and the last to go, and if they’re hurting I bet you never knew
The first thing a hero says is I’m not a hero, I just did what anyone else would do, They’re always the first ones in and the last to go, and if they’re hurting they won’t let you know
Like Superman lifting up a building, like Atlas holding up the world / You do it because it’s your duty, you answered the call to serve
It’s easy to forget about you, when the news has moved on to something else / This world makes it so much harder , to care for people other than ourselves
We both lost something, while you were away / Let’s try to find it together, now that you’re home to stay
I see you everyday, sitting on the sidewalk, with your faded fatigues, and your empty jar / Trying to think what to say, some meaningless smalltalk, when what I really need, is to speak from the heart
A weary traveler, on a lonely road, he’s driving in the dead of night, trying to get home / A roadside diner, a restless soul, the hunger makes him swallow his pride, and come in from the cold
A weary traveler, a restless soul / Driving in the dead of night, trying to get home / A business suit, some old fatigues / Silently sitting side by side, not sure what to think
You answered the call to go, heard that far off bugle blow, but now it's time to come home
Why do your feet move so slow, why is your head hung so low / I'm the one who should be ashamed, you answered the call while I remained
Why do your feet move so slow, why is your head hung so low / You shouldn’t be ashamed, you answered the call while we remained
Every shot, of that twenty one gun salute, made our mother cry out in agony / The sound, of every single round, woke up another childhood memory
No man left behind, still echoes through my mind, as I lay here on this bed and start to cry / Every time I turned around, I heard the call "Man down," I hope to God they know how hard I tried (or "I hope to hell...")
A pat on the back, a handshake and a smile / A “thank you for your service”, as they walk on by / Those words, I must have heard, a million times
Fourth of July, Independence Day parade / The hollow faces go by, yet somehow they still wave / Their medals shine so brightly in the sun / How can they be so old and yet so young
The war is over for another soldier, but another one begins, You were surrounded by a band of brothers, but now you’re alone again
When the nightmares wake you up, I’ll be there to hold your hand, you don’t have to be so tough, People will understand
You look fatigued in your fatigues, like you’re trapped in an old movie scene, but they never showed John Wayne after the war / Would he still be hard as nails, and not afraid to fail, or would he wonder just what he was fighting for
You look fatigued in your fatigues, like you’re trapped in an old movie scene, with John Wayne and Audie Murphy by your side / They were tough as nails, and not afraid to fail, but they never showed what they were feeling inside
They took a peaceful man and showed him what to do / Now that you're home I hardly recognize you / What you did, you did for liberty / For duty, honor, country, but especially for me
You were shown how to shoot, you were trained to fight / You were taught to protect other people’s rights
Your childhood room seems so small, as you put your medals on the shelf / It seems like all for one and one for all, has become every man for himself
Now you put away your guns, another chapter has begun / Now that you're back home, don't face it all alone
I know I didn’t have it as hard as you / Still, it wasn’t easy, I suffered too / I can’t imagine what you went through over there / but every night I would stare at an empty chair
You were made as hard as steel / taught not to run when things got real / improvise and adapt / when there's no going back
We both lost something, while you were over there / Now that you've come back, I'm a little scared
My hands are trembling as I see you at the airport / I thought I pulled it together, but now I'm not so sure / I can tell you've been through hell, I can see it in your eyes / You've done your job, for country and God, and now I've got to do mine
At the airport, waiting for your plane to land / Wondering if you'll even be the same man / The kids stayed up all night, making a sign / That's okay, I couldn't sleep anyway
I can see it in your eyes, you're not the same anymore / Does anyone truly ever come back from war / Or do they leave a piece behind / One they can never find
Between the love scenes we'll make our own dreams, with rainbows and moonbeams on display
Between the love scenes we'll fill eternity, with sunshine and laughter and play
When our souls become one, and we're not on the run, we'll feel, what's real, at last
When our souls become one, our clothes drying in the sun, naked and unashamed, of our love
When our souls are released, and we're finally set free, we'll swim with the dolphins, on the coast
When we're happy at last, and freedom we can taste, we'll take pride, and not hide, our joy
Fulfill our wildest dreams, beyond just flesh and bone, whatever we want to be, in our celestial home
Pleasures to be had, beyond just flesh and bone, there is no good or bad, outside the realm of what’s known
Two hearts beat as one, to a cosmic metronome, we fulfill our appetite, underneath the starry dome
Two hearts beat as one, to a cosmic metronome, we dance the dance of butterflies, putting on their final show
Two hearts beat as one, to a cosmic metronome, dance under the violet sky, we'll never be alone
Everyone belongs, each one of us was chosen, eternity all along, was just love in slow motion
Our shackles are gone, the chains of love replace them, forming a bond so strong, we can't be separated
It will always be June, when we were at the ocean, all the flowers were in bloom, it seemed like time was frozen
It will always be June, we’ll be playing in the ocean, as the sunflowers bloom, we’ll make love in slow motion
It will always be June, when we were at the ocean, all the flowers were in bloom, we made love in slow motion
I’ll be coming soon, to put together the broken, pieces of your shattered life, and then all will be golden
Love is coming soon, to put together the broken, pieces of our shattered lives, and then all will be golden
I'll be coming soon, to join you in a slow dance, I'll have my arms open wide, around you I will close them
Our hearts and minds on fire, our passion has awakened, color and sound collide, love alone will save us
Forbidden fruit laid out, it’s ours for the taking, we’ll eat until we are full, everyone’s participating
The lion’s mighty roar, scares away the jackals, stolen moments from before, release us from our shackles (reposted to correct typos)
Fragrant flowers bloom, the scent intoxicating, we’ll be back together soon, love is overtaking
Fragrant flowers bloom, the scent intoxicating, we’ll be back together soon, no more hesitating
Fragrant flowers bloom, the scent intoxicating, we'll be back together soon, it's all so liberating
Love is the answer, to every single question, we'll never have to ask why, we'll have achieved perfection
Universal truth, love heals all that is broken, takes all the tears that we cried, and throws them in the ocean
A kaleidoscope of sound, the symphony of creation, saints and sinners cry out, in a joyous celebration
We’ll look back on the past and all that we’ll remember, are those times our souls combined and love was at the center
We’ll look back on the past and all that we’ll remember, are those times our souls aligned and gave us sweet surrender
Cheers of joy ring out, echo off silver mountains, the poet's pen swiftly writes, as eternity is flowing
The lion's might roar, scares away the jackals, stolen moments from before, release us from our shackles (same cadence/might fit?)
We were not designed, to be cultured and refined, to never speak our minds, we were meant to be lions (could work? Fits the cadence, rhyme scheme is diff. though)
Long dead flowers bloom, a new Eden is growing, As hard as Hell's demons try, this love spell won't be broken
Love was always the answer, to the question of our existence, the cure to sin’s cancer, finally broke down our resistance
and religion will have no place, in the land of eternal grace, and love was always the answer, the cure to hate’s cancer
Then we start to rise / Flying to the father / Stolen moments are the ties / Bind us to each other (or - Bind us to one another)
Then we start to rise / Flying to the mother / Stolen moments are the prize / We give to one anothe
The lion’s mighty roar, scares away the jackals, stolen moments from before, release us from our shackles
Since the beginning of time, sin was the crime, then the angels sang in the heavenly chorus, it wasn’t a big bang, but a supernova, now eternity is laid out before us, no more pain, love is taking over
Eternity is laid out before us, peace and love are taking over, join together in the heavenly chorus, a rock ’n’ roll supernova
We were not designed, to be cultured and refined, to never speak our minds, we were meant to be lions
Love wins over hate, faith collides with science, stolen moments in disguise, were always there beside us
True love will finally find us, no more chains to bind us, nothing left to divide us, it will be our greatest triumph
We’ll have eternity to get back to the innocence of our birth, and then we’ll look back and laugh at how we were, moments combine with moments to fill up the universe, and we’ll remind each other just how much we’re worth
Won’t need to ask any questions, ‘cause all will be revealed, no more need for confession, no more moments will we need to steal
The hurt and hunger fade, all the things that divide us, love and glory take their place, and finally unite us
The hurt and hunger fade, all the things that divide us, stolen moments take their place, and finally unite us
Everything that hurts will be healed, all that we wish for will become real, our violent history will be sealed, as eternity is finally unveiled
Everything that hurts will be healed, all that we wish for will become real, our violent history will be sealed, as eternity is finally revealed
The final battle has been won, in a delicate explosion, time is frozen then it's done, setting eternity in motion
No hate or crime, no late or on time, no yes and no no, no "come on, it's time to go"
No hate or crime, no late or on time, no no and no yes, no passing or failing the test
No hate or crime, no late or on time, no no and no yes, we're finally blessed
The universe will be ours to explore, every pleasure and treasure our reward, and if clouds surround our jubilee, just turn around and you will see
We’ll look back on the past and all that we’ll remember, are those times our souls combined and love was at the center
We’ll look back on the past and all that we’ll remember, are those times our souls aligned and gave us sweet surrender
Past lives of sin and shame, enough to fill the oceans, stolen moments stripped away, with a delicate explosion
Then we touch the divine, the past doesn't matter, stolen moments reunite, a society in tatters
Our stains are washed away, all our scars are healed, stolen moments clean the slate, life's mystery revealed
Our stains washed away, all our scars are healed, stolen moments clean the slate, love's mystery revealed
When one bad man can’t be found, and anger no longer makes a sound, when the hands of time are rewound, and every day has you around
When innocence is not lost but found, when the thread of life comes unwound, when we learn to fly without looking down, stolen moments take us glory bound
Our souls unlock the chains, break free from the violence, stolen moments in their wake, are all that’s left behind us
Happiness on the way, true love finally finds us, stolen moments sanctified, will be our greatest triumph
The lion’s mighty roar, scares away the jackals, stolen moments from before, release us from our shackles
Past lives of sin and shame, enough to fill the oceans, stolen moments strip away, with a delicate explosion
Past lives of sin and shame, enough to fill the oceans, stolen moments take away, in a delicate explosion
Our lives of sad lament, just going through the motions, replaced with stolen moments, filled with sweet emotion
Our lives of sad lament, just going through the motions, replaced with stolen moments, full of love and devotion
Love wins over hate, faith collides with science, stolen moments in disguise, were always there beside us
Love wins over hate, unexplainable science, stolen moments in disguise, were always right beside us
Our souls release their hate, Love comes and sits beside us, stolen moments found inside, turning us into lions (or - changing us into lions)
Our minds open the safe, to a treasure chest of beauty, stolen moments found inside, hold shooting stars and moonbeams
Our minds open their eyes, a treasure chest of beauty, stolen moments found inside, innocent and soothing
The hurricane is quelled, the flood recedes its waters, stolen moments turn back time, to save us from the slaughter
The hurricane is quelled, the flood recedes its waters, stolen moments turn back time, to make us sons and daughters
Getting rid of the hate, letting go of the violence, stolen moments you can’t buy, line a highway of diamonds
Getting rid of the hate, letting go of the violence, stolen moments lost in time, on their way home to find us
Start to release the hate, wonder why we were violent, stolen moments make us shine, the lamb becomes the lion
Start to release the hate, wonder why we were violent, fighting for a place in line, until the end defiant
Getting rid of the hate, letting go of the violence, stolen moments overtake, no longer keeping silent
The hurt and hunger fade, all the things that divide us, stolen moments take their place, and finally unite us
We walk into the night, the moon shines like the sun, stolen moments make it right, letting us love everyone
As the night becomes day, disappears in the sun, stolen moments lead the way, reuniting everyone
Childlike and innocent, returned to natural beauty, we give back stolen moments, to the bottom of the sea
Childlike and innocent, returned to natural beauty, we give back stolen moments, fly away on a new breeze
Then our stolen moments come, in a delicate explosion, Time is frozen, then it's done, setting eternity in motion
Our spirits start to lift, as we come together, stolen moments are the gift, we leave at Love's altar
Then we start to rise, flying to the father, stolen moments are the ties, bind us to each other
Then we start to rise, flying to the mother, stolen moments are the prize, we give to one another
Love's ember starts to burn, bringing us all together, stolen moments are returned, they add up to forever
It's brightness splits the black, love's fire is glowing, stolen moments given back, won't need where we're going
And as the trumpets blow, to chase away the demons, stolen moments coming home, never to be leavin'
Then we fly away, as love comes and spreads her wings, stolen moments sweet bouquet, release our destiny
Then we fly away, as love comes and spreads her wings, stolen moments sweet bouquet, deliver us from evil things
Then we touch the divine, and the past doesn't matter, stolen moments will unite, a society in tatters
Clouds dissipate and fade, all that's known is revealed, stolen moments come back to stay, the only things that are real
Float away into the night / Chase our dreams and follow / Stolen moments bring more time / to fill the cup that’s hollow
Our stains are washed away / and all our scars are healed / stolen moments clean the slate, love’s mystery is revealed (or - life’s mystery is revealed)
Then our stains are washed away / and all our scars are healed / Stolen moments clean the slate / Love’s mystery is revealed (or - Life’s mystery is revealed)
Our spirits start to lift / As we come together / Stolen moments are the gift / that we leave at Love’s altar
Then we start to rise / Flying to the father / Stolen moments are the ties / Bind us to each other (or - Bind us to one another)
Then we start to rise / Flying to the mother / Stolen moments are the prize / We give to one another
Angels fly above / With white robes and haloes / Stolen moments filled with love / Revealing all that they know
Angels fly above / Carrying salvation Stolen moments filled with love / Save us from damnation
Things we have chosen / To give us enjoyment / Make us forget we're broken / Come back in stolen moments
Birds on broken wings / Singing songs of penance / Heal and take off flying / Taking stolen moments with them (or - Taking with them stolen moments)
Love's ember starts to burn / Bringing us together / Stolen moments are returned / They add up to forever (or - they will go on forever)
Brightness splits the black / Love’s fire is glowing / Stolen moments given back / We won’t need where we’re going
Then the trumpets blow / Chase away the demons / Stolen moments leaving home / No longer need a reason
Then the trumpets blow / Chase away the demons / Stolen moments coming home / Everything in its season
Then the trumpets blow / Chase away the demons / Stolen moments coming home / and they’ll never be leavin’
Help is on the way / Love comes and spreads its wings / Stolen moments sweet bouquet / Delivers us from evil things
Help is on the way / Love comes and spreads its wings / Stolen moments sweet bouquet / Delivers us from what death brings
Then we touch the divine / and none of it matters / Stolen moments will unite/ A society in tatters
Fresh air in our lungs / Allow us to see clearly / Stolen moments in the sun / We hold onto so dearly
Clouds dissipate and fade / All that's known is revealed / Stolen moments in the day / The only things that are real
Float away into the night / Chase our dreams and follow / Stolen moments bring more time / to fill the cup that's hollow
The trumpet, starts to blow, an ominous song of woe / and it melts, away, our pride
Then the birds, start to sing, a solemn song of woe / but fear, won’t be here, to divide
Then the birds, start to sing, a song of broken wings / but I know, there’s still hope, we can fly
The machines, start to hum, and remind us where we’re from / but as we go, there’s still hope, we can fly
The machines, start to hum, and remind us where we’re from / but as we turn, we learn, to fly
The machines, start to hum, and remind us where we’re from / but as we turn, we learn, there’s a way
So we turn, and start to leave, giving up on the dream / Just then, in the wind, is a sign
Then we try, to break in, afraid we won’t be taken / we seek, just to touch, the divine
At the height, of our hurt, on the edge of the earth / we trip, and slip, out of sight
We've washed, off the dirt, clothed in glowing white shirts / but one stain, still remains, in sight
We’ve washed, off the dirt, wearing glowing white shirts / not a stain, remains, in sight
Lying naked, in the sun, nowhere to hide or run / finally, we will see, if we're right
It opens, and we go in, the ceremony begins / still not sure, if we're pure, inside
A trumpet, starts to blow, telling us it's time to go / but which way, did they say, was right
At the bottom, of the pit, broken bruised and naked / in our sin, we begin, to shine
At the bottom, of the pit, broken bruised and naked / shed our skin, then begin, to shine
At the bottom, of the pit, finally forced to admit / we were wrong, all along, will we find...
At the bottom, of the pit, when we're forced to commit / only then, can a friend, we find
At the height, of despair, told only to beware / we mistake, the snake, for a sign
At the height, of despair, when no one seems to care / who will wait, and take, our side
At the top, of the mountain, looking for the fountain / where youth, and truth, collide
Then a man, in a robe, looks directly in our souls / Can he see, if we believe, in a lie?
There’s a hope, that we have, that we’re not so bad / to be fated, and slated, to die
We tremble, and we quake, wondering what is our fate / must we repent, or be sent, to die?
All that’s left, in our brains, is an ancient saying / that we can’t live, unless we give, up our lives (or - that to live, we must give, up our lives)
All that’s left, in our brains, is an ancient saying / we can’t live, unless we give, a sacrifice
All that’s left, in our brains, are some ancient sayings / telling us, that we must, sacrifice
In our homes, we are locked, afraid of the slightest knock / as we wait, for our fate, to arrive
In the hollow, of our souls, wishing we were made whole / Our demons, are screamin’, in the night
In the hollow, of our souls, wishing we were made whole / we scream, in our dreams, at night
There’s an island, of plastic, getting bigger every day / and it floats, but it won’t, go away
The ice caps, are melting, feeding the rising shore / can man, withstand, the storm
The temperature, is rising, as the winds begin to roar / and Mother Nature, will take her, revenge
The divisions, grow greater, as they split us into groups / and disguise, all their lies, as truth
The superheroes can be seen, when we turn the tv on / but in real life, they’re nowhere, to be found
The superheroes, can be found, when we turn on the tv / but in real life, they’re nowhere, to be seen
False praise, is all we have, and prayers are for the weak / when people pray, but don't do, anything
The church, in it's wisdom, told us to fall in line / and not question, their aggression, and their greed
And the church, in it's wisdom, told us to fall in line / and not question, their suppression, of the truth
The leaders, we've chosen, decided to change their minds / once elected, they only respected, their greed
We can't speak, for the fear, that someone else will hear / and extort us, or report us, to the mob
We can't breathe, in the air, and it's too hot to think / what's worse, is it hurts, to even care
In cubicles, and cars, always closing ourselves in / we've become, so numb, to our prison
In our homes, we are locked, looking out the window / as we wait, for our fate, to arrive
From within, the earth's core, comes a putrid stench / to remind us, of the vileness, of our sins
From within, the earth's core, rises a putrid stench / to remind us, of the crimes, that we commit
Every minute, we're apart, evil forces take charge / try to erase, your face, from my mind
On the top, of the pit, they placed a metal cross / watch it rust, turn to dust, and fall off
Chemicals, in the air, wilt the flowers in the field / as we cough, and try to wash, it off
The sound, of the engines, drowns out all free thought / our mind's eye, gone blind, from the smog
We're told, it's about love, but then they ask for money / while we're starving, it's alarming, but true
When we hate, what we love, as we do what we must / and watch the clock, try to stop, what's to come
All our fears, have come out, and follow us down the street / and we're hoping, they're going, to leave
When our heads, are held down, afraid of what's to come / and we seek, sweet release, from the noose
In the clouds, there's a sound, makes us run and hide / taking cover, from the thunder, of our fears
The hour’s late, sleep has gone, more time we won’t get back / and the clock, won’t stop, so don’t ask
All those times, in our lives, when darkness covers the light / and time, isn’t ours, to find
Stolen moments arrive, childlike, full of wonder / Making us ponder this path we wander (Edit to previous post that Gary commented on)
As we ponder, this path we wander / Stolen moments arrive like thunder, full of innocence and wonder (Edit to previous post that Gary commmented on)
Stolen moments set in motion, our very own solstice
Stolen moments release us, after they please us
Stolen moments float in, releasing emotions
Stolen moments, keeping us focused / Bring hidden feelings, out in the open / Put back together, our scattered components / Erasing the chalkboard, of our crowded unconscious
Then stolen moments come and go, in a delicate explosion / Time is frozen, then it's over, lives back in motion
Stolen moments, make us ponder, ’bout this path we’ve chosen to wander / Stolen moments, arrive like thunder, Innocent and childlike, full of wonder
and it takes us back on the right track / stolen moments we took from the past / a mental playground that we found / Stolen moments to calm us down
But then to survive, In these modern times, Stolen moments to get us by / In this modern day, Where time is pay, Stolen moments to take us away
But then we step back and take some time / Stolen moments to clear our minds / Catch our breath and energize / Stolen moments no one can buy (or - Stolen moments to save our lives)
Stolen moments filling up my mind / Stolen moments letting in the light / Stolen moments giving us more time / Stolen moments so we can do what’s right
Stolen moments, a piece of the day / Bring us enjoyment, as we tuck them away / Things we have chosen / Make us forget we are broken / Stolen moments keeping hope open
Will the strain, of the pressure, squeeze us into a mold, or make us diamonds, brightly shinin’, like a star
And the pangs, of childbirth, are magnified a hundredfold, will we repent, or like the serpent, slither off
And the pain, of the truth, that we need someone to hold, will it scare us, or prepare us, for what's to come
Will we run, from our fears, hide them deep in our soul(s), will man, turn back the hands, of the clock
Will we run, from our fears, hidden deep in our soul(s), make plans, to turn back the hands, of the clock
Will we run, to the light, of a thousand burning suns, or will we flee, and break free, from it all
Will we know, what to do, to save our mortal souls, or will we disobey, our dna, and its scars
Then we pray, to the universe, as we plant our seed into the soil, and watch our crops, as they rot, in the tar
When the rains get much worse and all the dams won't hold false praise won't erase the mark
Down the drain it swirls like it did long ago leaving behind a very unkind birth mark
When the reins have been pulled and the steed comes to a halt will we see our destiny float away on the ark
Bus stops and coffee shops / need to slow down but I can’t stop / watch your back and watch the clock / time bomb ticking, tick tock tick tock
Modern life has modern problems / Ancient riddles, no one can solve them
I'm not really that bad of a guy / But I get so mad when I run out of time
We went from sun dials to digital watches / Just so we could know when 5 o'clock is
The clock is ticking, I cut the wires / The preacher's preaching, but only to the choir
Fate intervened where it shouldn't have stuck its nose / Hate screamed when Love took a knee to propose
The clock is ticking, I cut the wires / The preacher's preaching, to the choir
Every fight has two sides to it / But I reserve the right to be a hypocrite
The one thing you can't get back is time / The phone rings and suddenly, the ordinary becomes the sublime
I sabotaged the hourglass / Tried to make it not go so fast
The road is long, my temper's short / The coffee's strong, the night is over
The coffee's strong, my will is weak / You have to raise your hand to speak
Robbing Peter to pay Paul / Doesn't make much sense at all
Took my chances, I rolled the dice / Love at first glance, comes with a price
The hour's too late to get some sleep / No carryover minutes, no get one free
I can't believe what's set in stone / Will determine my final home
I can't believe what's set in stone / Junkyard dog burying the same old bone
Staying positive in a dark, dark world / The ugly oyster, the beautiful pearl
Staying positive in a dark, dark world / The beautiful oyster, the ugly pearl
All those times in my life / trying to balance dark and light / making sense of wrong and right / not enough time in the day or night
So I'll dive in headfirst / Take our story further
So I'll dive in headfirst / Take our story deeper
I’ll look to the future / even when I’m unsure
But I’m not finished / it’s just the beginnin’
I’ll race to the finish / I know we can win it
So I won't be afraid / because it's not too late (...to say the...)
So I won't be afraid / to make tomorrow wait
I'll show you what romance is / through all circumstances
I'll show you what romance is / through all of life's dances
I'll show you what romance is / while the clock advances
So I'll wear my smile / more than once in a while
Right now it's not too late / to make tomorrow wait
Tomorrow's not too late / but I don't want to wait
So we'll stand together / this time for the better
It might not be perfect / but it's, Oh, so worth it
I won't hold back nothing / I'll be off and running
And I won't let worry / get me in a hurry
So when nothing's working / and tomorrow's not certain
Second chances are hiding / Right in front of my eyes, so when they arise / I won't let them pass by
That the sun is still shining / and when nothing is working, and tomorrow's not certain / I'll still have today
And tomorrow's not certain, so I'll draw back the curtain / and let all the sunshine in [last part of verse]
Second chances are hiding
that the sun is still shining
That my past won't define me
That tomorrow won't find me
That the past can't find me
That tomorrow will find me
That the past is behind me
That yesterday's behind me
Make up for all we've lost
Finally figured it out
And that bond will not break
And pray that's how we'll stay
And pray that's the way we'll stay
It’s all so wonderful
Make plans for the future
Trying to stop the clock
And that’s only the start
Another chapter starts
Adding to our story
Our story just got good
Finally getting it right
The nights seem much longer
The days seem much longer
But at the end of the day / time is short
And shut out all the noise
And try to start over
Deep in your warm embrace
Memories are forever
Doing what matters most
Take all the chances that I never did
I won’t hold back nothin’, I’ll be generous
When others hold back, I’ll be generous
When others are stingy, I’ll be generous
Finally be that person who’s so generous
Finally be that person that I know exists
Then I’ll shut my (big) mouth and truly listen
Look at the world with a childlike innocence
Don't speak so quickly and truly listen
Keep what I need, the rest I will give
Give all my heart to those who need it
Be innocent of hate, guilty of kindness
Give all that I own to those who need it
Be guilty of kindness and of hate innocent
Stop taking more than I'm willing to give
Treat each day of my life like a work in progress
Treat every day like a work in progress
Share all my feelings that I always hid
Drive the boys wild in my summer dress
Walk barefoot through wildflowers like a little kid
Walk barefoot in the moonlight at one a.m.
Drive to the ocean and go for a swim
Go to all the parties that I never did
Plant those red roses that I never did
Realize everything fun isn't a sin
Let go of my anger and unclench my fists
Take what the world gives me and drink it all in
Swim in the ocean, in the cool, morning mist
Drive to the ocean, in the morning mist
Treat every day like it was a gift
Swim with the dolphins, take an overseas trip
Take a long walk in the cool, morning mist
Do something crazy just for the hell of it
Tell my life story to someone I just met
Forgive all the people who don't deserve it
I'll think with my heart, and dance with my hips
Go out with someone that I just met
Realize it doesn't get better than this
Not have any regrets as my dying wish
Stop trying to always get it perfect
Just smell the roses and take a deep breath
Do what I want and not what they insist
Tell all the haters just what they can kiss
Go out and buy that sexy, red dress
Go out and buy that expensive dress
Look fear in the eyes and say I got this
See everything through the eyes of a kid
Find someone who’ll close their eyes when we kiss
Thank all the people that I never did
Enjoy everything that this life has to give
Run through the sprinklers just like a kid
Dance all the dances that I never did
Do all the things that I have on my list
Take all the chances and never regret
Faster than a Ferrari, it all passed (right) by me / the world kept on movin' I have wrinkles to prove it / the years had flown by somehow (or - the years had raced by somehow)
I never suspected, just where I was headed / but before I knew it that's all there was to it / 10 years had gone by somehow
I let worry take over, while I just got colder / I had voices that told me, I deserved to be lonely / so I shut everyone out
I kept my heart guarded, and I disregarded / the people who loved me 'cause I thought they'd judge me / if I let my feelings out
Through breakups and breakdowns, you were always around / You’ve seen all my scars, you know just where they are / and you still love me somehow (or - yet you still love me somehow)
So please don't be like me, listen to my story / Always stayed in my lane because I was afraid / of letting my heart be let down
So don't waste one minute, you got to start livin' / treat every breath like it's the last one you'll get / and make every moment count
It's better believe me, to take a leap of faith / and gloriously fail than to never set sail / and see what's beyond the clouds
If you live to a hundred, would you do anything different / or what would you do, if somehow you knew / soon all your time will run out
So if you are listening, you gotta stop wishing / and speak up and speak out, 'cause you know it won't count / if you don't say it out loud
I've had friends and lovers, and family members / who left way too soon, 'cause they wanted to / or they had their candle blown out
I've had friends and lovers, and family members / by choice or by sickness, they left much too quickly / now they're no longer around
So if you are listening, don't do it like I did / Stand up for something and don't you keep running, wondering what it's all about
They say love isn’t perfect, but I say it’s worth it / You can’t get a taste of, what they call true love / Until you stop shutting it out
So how are you living, with what you've been given / Are you making the most of, every moment / without a minute of doubt
So how are you living, with the time that you're given / Are you making the most of, every moment / without a moment of doubt
So what are you doing, with the time you are given / Are you living for the moment or are you hoping, that somehow it will all work out
Weddings and funerals, rush by like rivers / and you can't slow it down just by turning around, and hoping that it all will stop
Weddings and funerals, rush by like rivers / no last minute salvation will cure the frustration, of choosing to follow the crowd
Weddings and funerals, rush by like rivers / and no deathbed confession or wedding night lesson, will magically fix it somehow
Weddings and funerals, rush (or rushed) by like rivers / and no deathbed confession will give you possession of what you really want
I had my freedom, and man did it feel good / until I realized that my stubborn pride, kept me away from your arms (a bit of a stretch rhyming now with arms, but I think it could work)
I had my freedom, and man did it feel good / until I realized that my stubborn (or foolish) pride, kept me away from the crowd
It made me look back on all of my past / and see all the missed chances and high school dances, that I chose to sit out
If we lived to be one hundred, would we do anything different / Or what if we knew, our time was through at such an early age
I’m gonna throw a party, tell all the busy bodies to go to hell / Lose all my inhibitions, tell anyone who’ll listen, to love yourself
I’m gonna throw a party, tell all the busy bodies to go to hell / Just heard from my physician, ain’t got much time for livin’, so I’m gonna do it well
I’m gonna throw a party, tell all the busy bodies to go to hell / Just heard from my physician, so I’m a man on mission, to live life well (could also say "woman" or "girl" on a mission)
I picked out my momma’s dress, the first time she didn’t pick one out for me / Daddy was in his Sunday best, for the first time since 1983
I picked out momma’s dress, like she used to do for me / Daddy in his Sunday best, as he fumbled with his keys
I never saw my daddy cry until today / When he saw momma’s favorite flowers on her grave
Blue jeans fade like promises made and then forgotten / and all the words we pray eventually fray like cotten
Weddings and funerals are such busy occasions / I’ve had my share of both, far too many to mention
Weddings and funerals are such busy occasions / You don't even have time to realize what just happened
I got a Birthday card in the mail today / that my daddy sent before he passed away
Most everyone nowadays got themselves a bucket list / But they never get around to doing, half the things they put on it
I brush the moss off your stone, and I put fresh flowers down / Another year come and gone, it goes by so quickly now
Grandpa said, from the hospital bed, to enjoy every moment / Time goes fast, it don’t last, and before you know it
They say love goes on forever, and memories never die / but I'm struggling to remember, the color of your eyes
Youth is wasted on the young / best laid plans always come undone
Love is hard, and imperfect / Life is short, but it's worth it
They say love goes on forever, and memories never die
I never watched a clock until today / Time was something I would always waste
This great big world suddenly got small / If I could turn back time, I wouldn't have answered the call
What are we doing with the time we are given / We're alive, but does that mean we're living
Your world view (or - Your point of view) / couldn’t be more narrow / Why don’t you / open your eyes / If you knew / I’m trying to save your life / but I’m never gonna change your mind
So I’ll take it slow / Hope that I don’t scare you / Have you dip your toe / in the river of life / Let you know / I’m never gonna leave your side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
(but) you’re my friend / we’ll always be together / you can depend / on me to be kind / even when / you want me to believe your lies / but I’m never gonna change your mind (edited post that Beth gave comments on)

(but you’re my friend / we’ll always be together / ‘cause in the end / I’ll be by your side / maybe then / I can try to be your guide / but I’m never gonna change your mind (edited post that Beth gave comments on)
So open up / tell me all your secrets / I’ll call your bluff / if you try to lie / I’ve had enough / but I might give you one more try / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I can't see / why you don't get it / if you ask me / that's not very kind / history repeats / pretending everything is fine (or - when we begin to lose sight) / but I'm never gonna change your mind
Maybe change line 6 from my previous posts from "you had the same views as mine" to "you held the same views as mine"
Maybe at the end of this B section, or even on the Outro, say "am I ever gonna change your mind." Would make it a little more hopeful at the end.
You’re my friend / I really want to help you / This won’t end / with us on the same side / Remember when / You had the same views as mine / but I’m never gonna change your mind
You're my friend / I really want to help you / This won't end / the way that you like / Remember when / You had the same views as mine / but I'm never gonna change your mind
(but) you’re my friend / we’ll always be together / though I can’t bend / when you start to lie / but you can depend / on me to always treat you kind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I could get so lost / trying to convince you / (but the) lines get crossed / no matter what I try / Keep my fingers crossed / I’ll get through to you sometime / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I could give up hope / Forget I ever knew you / or throw you a rope / and try to save a life (or - and try to make things right) / but you should know / that it’s sink or swim this time / so am I ever gonna change your mind
Well, I don’t know / What you think you’re doing / Don’t know why / You were put in my life / It just goes to show / that it really takes all kinds / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, you live and learn / We used to tell each other / We’re in this together / We’re both on the same side / Now you’re so sure / that I’m not one of your kind / and I’m never gonna change your mind

My head reels / thinking about tomorrow / our fate is sealed / if we don’t get it right / can’t you feel / the winds of change in the sky / but I’m never gonna change your mind
(but) you’re my friend / we’ll always be together / though I can’t bend / when you start to lie / but you can depend / on me to always treat you kind / but I’m never gonna change your mind
You tell me / it’s none of my business / pay no heed / to the signs of the times / say nothing’s free / what makes you think you have the right / and I’m never gonna change your mind
It’s our turn / to make the world better / are you so sure / you don’t want to try / we can’t return / to the promise of days gone by / and I’m never gonna change your mind
You live and learn / but don’t know any better (or - but still you don’t know better) / and you can’t earn / what you can’t buy / didn’t Rome burn / while the emperor just stood by / but I’m never gonna change your mind
First will be last / the times are a-changing / we’ll cut a path / gonna make it this time / the grapes of wrath / are ripening on the vine / but I’m never gonna change your mind (Changed line 2 from my last post)

I could get so lost / trying to convince you / (but the) lines get crossed / and won’t come untied / Keep my fingers crossed / I’ll get through to you sometime / but I’m never gonna change your mind (Changed the 4th line from a previous post of mine; rest is same)

Maybe at the end of this B section, change the last line to "am I ever gonna change your mind?"
We need to wake up / try to work together / The going got tough / and there’s nowhere to hide / It’s not enough / to tell people to play nice / and I’m never gonna change your mind
You really do live and learn / that some things are better left unsaid / bridges don’t really burn / there’s always hope up the road ahead
Together in this big world / Is better than being all alone / Like all the lost boys and girls / Trying to make their way back home
I’m not about to give up hope / You’re my friend and I am still yours / I guess it just goes to show / It’s the time we spend and not the words
I’m not about to give up hope / I’ll be here no matter what you think / I guess it just goes to show / Love really can conquer anything
I admit that I don’t know / Why you think and feel the way you do / I’m not about to give up hope / there’s something special inside of you (or “someone special”)
(I’m) not about to give up hope / You were there when I needed someone / Maybe I don’t need to know / agree to disagree and have fun

Remember when we were young / Nobody could tell us anything / I found out it’s much more fun / to see what our differences could bring
It really just goes to show / Sometimes things don’t always go as planned / (I’m) not about to give up hope / Life’s too short to hate your fellow man
Maybe I could write a song / telling you just how I really feel / Wouldn’t have to be too long / as long as it was honest and real

I'm aiming for the middle of your heart
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / but I'll be damned if I let you lie to me
Well, I'm never gonna change your mind / but I'll be damned if you're gonna lie to me
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / So I’ll write it on the middle of your heart
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / So I’ll hit you in the middle of your heart
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s a puzzle like the middle of your heart
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / but I’ll tell you where it is I’m gonna start
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / when it’s empty in the middle of your heart
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / with a bullseye in the middle of my heart
We’re never gonna change each other’s minds / You’re set in your ways like I am set in mine
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / So I’ll draw a line down the middle of my heart
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / You’re like a politician who can only see one side
Well, you’re never gonna change your mind / Unless you get out and see the big, blue world
Well, you’re never gonna change your mind / By living life in a forum online
Well, you’re never gonna change my mind / By yelling and shouting all the time
Well, you’re never gonna change my mind / You can’t walk on water or turn that water into wine
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / and my mind’s made up about that
Well, just maybe I could change your mind / If we took a walk and had a talk sometime / but you’re a totally different person online
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / So if you’re gonna leave just go ahead and leave
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / about the biggest or the smallest things in life

Yeah we gave it all we had
Yeah we gave it all we had
I took you at your word / I was so sure (or, we were so sure)
You taught me how to live / and to forgive
After all these years / got no more tears
The years went rolling by / in the blink of an eye
I had to set you free / or was it me?
Now I’m stronger than before / Hope you found what you were looking for
Now I’m stronger than before / Your love opened the door
The days were like diamonds / No use in crying
The days were like diamonds / nights were more fun
The days were like diamonds / Oh, we had fun
Our time wasn’t long / What went wrong?
The one thing I’d change / would be that day
Ain’t one thing I’d change / Just wanna say
Your last words still ring / I remember everything
Your love was like gold / Touched my soul
and I’ve had some regrets/ Since you left
We had our troubles, but I still loved you
That was so long ago, but even so
Another place, another day / Oh, but that's okay
If you were standing here today / I would say
Now I hold on a little longer / Love a little stronger
Though we didn't plan it / I won't take love for granted
Since those wild and crazy nights / I've finally seen the light
Now I kiss a little longer / Love a little stronger
But it made me a better man / Oh, yes I am
It made Adam take the apple from Eve in Eden
Like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden
We both had it, bad like a bee sting
It's like trying to forget how to breathe
When there's just us, no you or me
When you didn’t care and I didn’t either
When every word you say has meaning
When every memory you make has meaning
When everything is as new as breathing
When every memory is worth keeping
When you can make things right just by believing
When you can get by just by believing
Before you learn how to keep secrets (or) Before you’re taught to keep secrets
When it feels as simple as breathing
We played a game no one was winning
Can’t switch an imitation for the real thing
Can’t deny, when it’s the real thing
Days of thunder, nights of neon (or) The days were thunder, the nights were neon
Yeah we gave it all we had
Like moonshine on a hot June night / Everything just seemed so right / You were the best (time) I ever had
May came like a hurricane / By July we put out that flame / and I’m not, trying to rekindle the past
We came in like a hurricane / We burnt out like a dying flame / and I’m not, trying to rekindle the past
I was the fuse, you were the spark / Learning how to love in the dark / Then it all went up in a flash
We burned out way too soon / Like werewolves after a full moon / Still, we burned down everything in our path / and there ain't one kiss, one kiss I'd wanna take back
Like fireworks in the month of June / We burned out way too soon / From flamin’ hot to ice cold in a flash / Still, there ain’t one kiss, one kiss I’d wanna take back
The days were diamonds and the nights were golden / then I let go when you said to hold on / and it all went up in a flash
The days were diamonds and the nights were golden / then I let go when you said to hold on / but we still had a blast
We were lightning in a bottle / Always going full throttle / Our fuse burned out in a flash
We burned out like a Super Nova / When the dust cleared it was all over / and I’d do it all over again, just like that
We burned out like a Super Nova / When the dust cleared it was all over / but I wouldn’t trade it for the world
And I sure miss that little black dress, girl / You always knew, just what to do / To leave me wanting more
Nothing I'd change from our past, girl / 'Cept maybe how it ended that night
There ain’t, one kiss I’d take back, girl / Our love was unsurpassed, girl / That was so long ago, but even so / I wouldn’t trade it for the world
There ain't one kiss I'd take back, girl / Boy, we sure had a blast, girl / Young and reckless and so carefree / I wonder if you ever think of me
There ain't one kiss I'd take back, girl / Even though I stopped living in the past, girl / All those daylight daydreams and midnight memories will never fade away
There ain't one kiss I'd take back, girl / Not one pic I'd tear in half, girl / All those good times in the back of my mind / I wouldn't trade for anything else
There ain't, one kiss I'd take back, girl / Not one time, that was bad, girl / Even when you said goodbye/ 'Cause I knew you had to fly
There ain't, one kiss I'd take back, girl / One memory that won't last, girl / Ain't one thing I'd wanna change / 'Cause it made me who I am today
but there ain't, one kiss I'd wanna take back / One memory I wouldn't wanna last / There ain't, one thing I'd wanna change / 'Cause it made me who I am today
Your last words still echo, you said hold tight but I let go / but there ain't...
Another place, another day, but that’s okay, I just wanna say
After all we been through, I just wanna say to you
After all I been through, the one thing I wouldn’t change is you
It’s been so long and we’ve both moved on / but there ain’t...
and I’ve had no regrets since the day I left / Still there ain’t...
and I’ve had some regrets since the day you left / but there ain’t...
Had our share of trouble, but I still think of you / and there ain’t...
We had our troubles, but I still loved you / and there ain’t...
Time was the remedy for what you did to me / but there ain’t...
I know that was long ago, but even so (or) That was so long ago, but even so
Baby your last words, they still echo / I’ll never forget what we had
After a rainstorm, there’s always a rainbow / and there’s always a brighter future from a broken past
I’m finally over, feeling so low / and I’m thankful for all the good times (that) we had
Thinking ‘bout what if’s, and all I don’t know / but I’m happy for all the good times we had
I’m thinking over, all we went through / You were such an important part of my past
That was right before, your Dodge got towed / Like that car I guess we just ran out of gas
Two foolish lovers, how could we know / That trip would turn out to be our last
Wish I could tell you, what I now know / As I look through these faded photographs
We had some good times, just goes to show / Not every memory was bad
Two young lovers, what did we know? / Boy, did we make a mess of that
I heard that you're, getting married tomorrow / My first thought was to throw out the past
You were wearing, that silly sombrero / God, did I really buy you that?

Love Lost
It’s funny what we think about when we can’t get to sleep / Like how we decide what to throw away and what we choose to keep
I left you on your momma’s porch, Didn’t even look in the rear view mirror / Now I’m standing at that same screen door, and things are so much clearer
I was heading out / You were heading in / We got to drinking / We got to talking / Never thought in a million years that you would walk in - A bottle of wine / It’s been a long time / How are you doing / What’s been happenin’ / I need to tell you some things that I couldn’t back then
Just because we’re not getting back together / Doesn’t mean that everything was a disaster / I tried too hard to be your knight in shining armor / You never wanted to play the farmer’s daughter / They say kids, what do they know / Too young and foolish, chasing shooting stars / But sometimes you got to go with the flow / To get to where you’re going, to become who you are
Yesterday I had to stop and laugh / at something only you woulda laughed at / I’m finally realizing that it wasn’t all bad / I’m reclaiming my memories of the good times that we had
Little bit lost, little bit sad / Little bit bitter over what we had / But then was then, and this is now / Never thought I’d do it, but I’ve moved on somehow
Oh, now that’s it’s over / Now that the dust has settled / Now that I’ve removed every piece of emotional shrapnel
It’s been seven long years / Since we were standing face to face / Funny, now that you’re here / I’ve forgotten everything I wanted to say
I finally threw your picture out / This time I won’t dig it out of the trash / ‘Cause I’m through digging up the past / But I want to thank you, anyway, / for making me who I am today
I’m getting married tomorrow In the same church where we first met It’s 1 am and I’m still up and, no, I don’t have any regrets But I’m smoking my first cigarette in 7 years
You, are my saving grace
You are, perfect in every way
Why, am I the one you're with? (You're...)
I, can't believe it's real ('Cause you're...)
and I, can't believe I almost missed
It's like, you're the answer to my prayers
My life, should be spent with someone like you
I've searched, my whole life for someone like you
I've found, the one I've been looking for
Why, am I the chosen one? (for...)
Our souls, and our bodies intertwined
Waking up, with you by my side
Each day, being so very blessed
Each day, beginning with your best
It's time, to let you know my heart
It's time, to tell you (just) how I feel
and I, will give my best to you
and I, will give you all my best
It's right, here in front of my own eyes
It's MY, idea of total bliss
You, are the reason I exist
You're MY, one and only wish
Why, am I the chosen one? / How, did you know just when to come?
I, was drowning, gasping for air / You, saved me right then and there
The WORLD, led you here to me / but NOW, let's just shut it out
You, are staying here tonight / Let's, make it the rest of your life
You, are staying here tongiht / Why, don't we make it the rest of your life
I, Keep on pinching myself / I, Couldn't picture anyone else
DON'T, Want this night to end. If it DOES,/ we'll just make love again
Hope, this night will never end / If, it does we'll just pretend
I'm, falling so hard for you / Don't, know what I'm gonna do
I, opened myself up / You, put me back together again
Rare, That’s what you are to me There, In all of your glory
When, This night is finally done We’ll, Be two hearts joined as one
By, The light of the morning sun We’ll be two hearts joined as one
Feeling your touch / As the sun comes up
In your arms / Until the dawn
In your arms / All night long
Your body pressed / Into my chest (You’re...)
Gazing in your eyes / With the sunrise (You’re...)
Your hands on my chest / As I’m getting the best (of...)
I’m so blessed / ‘Cause I’m getting the best (of...)
Being so blessed / Getting the best (of...)
Falling into / The arms of you
Teasing you / Pleasing you
Lying there / Stroking your hair
If they only knew / What I'm gonna do (with...)
If they only knew / What it's like with you
Lying here with you / Stroking your tattoos (You're...)
Caressing your face / As I embrace
Touching your lips / With my fingertips (You're...)
Winning the heart / Of such a work of art
Learning by heart / Every body part (of...) [or "each body part"]
Enjoying the view / of every inch of you
With my point of view / Exploring all of you
Getting to know / Your body and soul (You're...)
Holding you / Touching you
Thinking of what they'd do / With someone like you
Spending the night / With someone so right
Having fun / With someone
'Cause they know / From head to toe (You're...)
Holding onto / Someone like you
Making love / While they're thinking of
Making love / While they're dreaming of
'Cause I get to do / All of this with you
'Cause I'll show / you, that I know (You're...)
While they pray / I get to play (with...)
Caress your cheek / No need to speak (with...)
But I can say / You're mine today
Why you chose me / It's a mystery (You're...)
Start with a kiss / and then there' this (with...)
They know it's true / That I get you
While they pray / I will say (You're...)
If you only knew / I'll show you (You're...)
Girl, it's true / I'll show you (You're...)
If you take my hand / You'll understand (You're...)
Take my hand / I'll make you understand
Our hearts as one, our bodies intertwined / We share a kiss, as your eyes meet mine
You should have a warning, you go straight to my head / My heart is soaring, my hands are tremblin’
I’m not even sure of, what I’m supposed to do / You’ve got me trembling, this is all brand new
I don’t need a map, to show me the way / My GPS will be, the look on your face
I would give anything to stay just like this / Trade the world and it’s glories for (just) one more kiss
The world can wait, for one more day / Let’s spend the rest of our weekend this way
We come together, in a beautiful embrace / Can't hide my feelings, they're written all over my face
Spent my whole lifetime, just waiting for this / My heart and body, sharing the same wish
The candlelight flickers, as it paints a silhouette / Of your beautiful body, across my chest
The candlelight flickers, the moon paints a silhouette / I know this moment, I will never forget
The candlelight flickers, the moon paints a silhouette / Of our bodies on the wall, as the sun sets
I can smell your perfume, as I kiss your neck / Intoxicating, this feeling’s the best
The moonlight, the candles, the sparkling wine / Our hearts as one, our bodies intertwined
Our hands come together, as I look in your eyes / I’ve never been so sure, of something in my life
Our hands come together, as I look in your eyes / I’ve never been so sure, of something in my life
The moonlight, the candles, the sparkling wine / All set the mood, as I take your hand in mine
The moonlight, the candles, the sparkling wine / I've waited for this, my whole lifetime
Our hearts as one, our bodies intertwined / We share a kiss, as your eyes meet mine
I can smell your perfume, as I kiss your neck / Intoxicating, this feeling’s the best
The candlelight flickers, the moon paints a silhouette / Of our bodies on the wall, as the sun sets
The moonlight, the candles, the sparkling wine / Our hearts as one, our bodies intertwined
The candlelight flickers, the moon paints a silhouette / I know this moment, I will never forget
The candlelight flickers, the moon paints a silhouette / Of your beautiful body, across my chest
I need you so bad, if you haven’t guessed yet / I know my whole future’s right here on this bed
I can smell your perfume, as you kiss my neck / It’s so exciting, wonderin’ what comes next
The future’s before us, so let’s take it slow / Don’t need to hurry, Baby, don’t you know
It's so rewarding, being here next to you / Let's have fun exploring, each other's tattoos
It seemed like forever, for you to get to me / But now I never, want you to leave
Spent my whole lifetime, just waiting for this / My heart and body, sharing the same wish
Let’s make a memory, that will always last / We’ll put an end, to living in the past
It seemed like forever, for you to appear / I’ll do whatever, it takes to keep you here
Take me by the hand, and show me what to do / Teach me things that I never knew
Will you take my hand, and show me what to do / I want to learn, all about you
This ain’t a marathon, let’s take it slow / Please take my hand, and show me where to go
You should have a warning, you go straight to my head / My heart is soaring, my hands are tremblin’
Spent my whole lifetime, just waiting for this / No one ever told me, what to expect
No one ever told me, it could be like this / My heart and my body, share the same wish
No one ever told me, it could be like this / Our hearts and our bodies, sharing a kiss
No one ever told me, it could be like this / Our hearts and our bodies, in a beautiful mix
I’m not even sure of, what I’m supposed to do / You’ve got me trembling, this is all brand new
I don’t need a map, to show me the way / My GPS will be, the look on your face
The world led you to me, but now let’s shut it out / Let’s give the neighbors, somethin’ to talk about
The world can wait, for one more day / Let’s spend the rest of our weekend this way
I would give anything to stay just like this / Trade the world and it’s glories for (just) one more kiss
Seemed like forever / For you to appear / I want to enter / Eternity here / with someone so rare
Seemed like forever / For you to appear / I'll do whatever / To keep you here / Someone so rare
Someone so gentle / Someone so strong / My heart’s telling me / I can’t go wrong / with someone so rare
I'm right here / You're right there / What else do we need / But a wing and a prayer / You're someone so rare
I'd do anything / To show you I care / Settle down right here / or go anywhere / for someone so rare
I want to show / You what you are / Do you even know / The gift that you are / You're someone so rare
I want to show / You what you are / Do you even know / You set the bar / You're someone so rare
I’m not a quitter / but I want to stop / The world from spinnin’ / Now that I’ve got / Someone so rare
I know this feeling / Will never grow old / It’s a wildfire that raging / Out of control / For someone so rare
What did you start / How did you know / When you touched my heart / You saved my soul
Girl, it's the truth / Every day is brand new / The fountain of youth / Got nothin' on you / Someone so rare
Better than pearls / Better than gold / Can't believe this world / Gave me someone to hold / Someone so rare
I never knew / How great it could be / Until I met you / Until you saved me / You’re someone so rare
When I reach out / You're always there / I'm never in doubt / of how much you care / You're someone so rare
I want to stay / Forever like this / Trade the world and it's glories / For one more kiss / with someone so rare
Don't wanna waste / A single minute / Every day / I wanna spend, with / Someone so rare
Thankful for this / Moment to share / How did I almost miss / Someone so rare / Someone so rare
Don't know what to think / I'm shakin' with fear / Afraid if I blink / You might disappear / 'cause you're someone so rare
Don't know where to start / Don't know what to say / But my head and my heart, / are finally on the same page / 'cause you're someone so rare
You're one in a million / You blow my mind / In a world of imitations / How did I find / Someone so rare
I'm a little bit nervous / A little bit scared / I gotta admit / I wasn't prepared / for someone so rare
You're pretty and tough / Got me floatin' on air / A jewel in the rough / I don't want to share / Someone so rare
Didn't do anything / To deserve you, I swear / Whatever it takes / To show you I care / 'Cause you're someone so rare
I'm a lucky man / but sometimes I doubt / Could never have planned / for this to work out / with someone so rare
You came along / Without a moment to spare / I was going under / Gasping for air / You're someone so rare
Someone so special / That's what you are / I'm not even scared / To let down my guard / for someone so rare
You've got no equal / It's not even fair / When you're next to me, girl / I don't wanna share / Someone so rare
I was drowning / Gasping for air / You came along / and saved me right there / You're someone so rare
Someone so gentle / Someone so strong / My heart's telling me / I can't go wrong / with someone so rare
Someone so rare, that sometimes I doubt / Could never have planned, for this to work out
Someone so rare, got me shakin' with fear / I'm afraid if I blink, you might disappear
Someone so rare, I wasn’t prepared / but I want to spend, my whole life this way / Someone so rare, I’m a little bit scared / but my head and my heart, are finally on the same page
Someone so rare, I don’t know what to say / My head and my heart, are finally on the same page
Someone so rare, got me gasping for air / I wasn’t prepared, for someone so rare
Someone so rare, must be magic in the air / ‘Cause you took my pride, and made it disappear
Someone so rare, Girl, I swear / I didn’t do anything to deserve, someone so rare
Someone so rare, You’re one of a kind / One in a million and I’m grateful you’re mine
Someone so rare, you answered my prayer/ Now it’s up to me to show you how much I care
Someone so rare, it’s like you came outta thin air / I didn’t even know I need you, until I saw you standing there
Someone so rare, someone so fine / You took all my cares, and made them say goodbye
Someone so rare, someone so precious / Someone to compare, I just haven't met yet
Someone so rare, someone so precious / If I tried to compare you, it wouldn't do you justice
Someone so rare, someone so fine / Are you even aware / A man could spend his whole life and not even find, Someone so rare
Someone so rare, I just wanna share / Every moment with you, someone so rare
Someone so rare, I wasn’t even aware / That I needed you, until you appeared
Someone so rare, Without a moment to spare / 'Cause I was going under, girl, gasping for air
Someone so rare, I wasn’t prepared / I’m used to the ordinary, not someone so rare / But now that you’re with me, now that you’re here / I think I’m ready, for someone so rare
You’re pretty, you’re tough / You’re a jewel in the rough / If beauty was money you’d be a millionaire
Someone so rare, I’m just gonna put it out there / I need you all the time, and everywhere
Someone so rare, everyone stares / They can’t see, what you’re doing with me
Someone so rare, a precious gem / You got my heart racing, at a thousand bpm's / You are the reason, I'm the man that I am / I want to please you, any way that I can
I'll never take you for granted / You're the only for me, girl, the only one on this planet
Someone so rare, / I get turned on just by the smell of your hair, I can't believe that we share the same air
Someone so rare... You oughta have a warning, you go straight to my head / You're the reason I get up in the morning, and the reason I wanna go back to bed
Someone so rare, it's not even fair / That you picked me, over all the other guys out there
Someone so rare, I better take care / If I should lose you, I'll be wrecked beyond repair
Someone so rare, someone so fine / You’re one in a million and I’m grateful you’re mine
Someone so rare / That's what you are / and I'm not even scared, to let down my guard
Someone so rare / It's not even fair / When you're next to me, girl, my pride doesn't have a prayer
Someone so rare / It's almost not fair / In a world of imitations, you're one of a kind / As long as I've known you, you still blow my mind
Someone so rare You got me gasping for air I feel like I’m drowning, girl and I don’t even care Someone so rare You’re one of a kind One in a million and I’m grateful you’re mine I didn’t do anything to deserve you, I swear How did I wind up with, someone so rare
It’s all true / What they say about you
It’s the truth / Just me and you
Just me and you / Just me and you
It’s not hard / When you are
That's okay / I want it that way (chorus would have to start: 'Cause you're someone so rare)
I get high / Looking in your eyes (then the chorus would have to start: 'Cause you're someone so rare)
You set the bar / Girl, you are
Finally / I found me
Finally / I got me
Do you know / You're like gold
How'd I find / Someone so fine
I’m astounded / I finally found it
I'm losing control / Don't you know
I can't believe / That you're with me
You are the reason, I'm the man that I am / I want to please you, any way that I can (or - You are the reason, I'm the woman I am...)
I don’t have to tell you, what’s on my mind / Let’s make a memory, that lasts for all time
In a world of imitations, you’re one of a kind / As long as I’ve known you, you still blow my mind
I don't need a map, to show me the way / My GPS will be, the look on your face
The world led you to me, but now let's shut it out / Let's give the neighbors somethin' to talk about
After this morning, for the rest of the day / There’ll be no hiding, this look on my face
The world can wait, for one more day / Let’s spend the rest of our weekend this way
I would give anything to stay just like this / Trade the world and it’s glories for one more kiss
I wouldn’t trade you for rubies, I wouldn’t trade you for gold / But for this moment to last forever, I would sell my soul
A man can't be a man if he lets his guard down / I used to believe that lie before you came around
The best advice I ever got was to never let you go / The best advice I ever ignored was not to let my feelings show
I'd walk a country mile, I'd run a marathon
You brought out feelings in me I didn't know I had
It can't be this easy to be so happy
