Bayou Lullaby

1BAYOU LULLABY 1992

HUSH NOW SOFTLY, CAN’T YOU HEAR

THE MOCKINGBIRD, SHE MUST BE NEAR

SHE SINGS HER SONG, THE BAYOU LULLABY

MISTY MORNING, LAZY SUN

BROKEN ONLY BY THE RIVERS’ RUN

OH MISSISSIPPI RIVER, TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS

TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS, FOR JUST ANOTHER DAY

FLOATING BY, I CAN CLEARLY SEE

FROM BATON ROUGE TO ETERNITY

FROM NEW ORLEANS AND BACKWARDS INTO TIME

THE DELTA BLUES ARE MORE THAN SONG

THEY’RE BROKEN DREAMS, LONG LOST AND GONE

LIKE A COTTON FIELD LAIN FALLEN BY THE WIND

BUT THAT’S THE WAY IT IS, THAT’S THE WAY IT IS..THEN I SAY

I WOULDN’T WANT IT ANY OTHER WAY

A FRIENDLY SMILE’S ENOUGH TO SAY YE-EAH

I’LL BE ALRIGHT, AND I DON’T HAVE TO WORRY NONE

A GENTLE WORD OR A PASSING WAVE,

MAKES SOUTHERN SENSE WHEN I’M AWAY

AND I’M JUST GLAD, I’M BACK WHERE I BELONG,

BACK WHERE I BELONG

ALL MY WORRIES, ALL MY FEARS,

THEY UP AND LEAVE ME, JUST DISAPPEAR

LIKE SO MUCH NOTHING, SO MUCH FOR TAKING TIME

‘CAUSE, ON THE WATER OR ON THE SHORE

THIS IS HOME AND SO MUCH MORE

OLD MAN RIVER, TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS

I’M HOME SWEET HOME AGAIN…..STILL I SAY

Because Tonight

1 BECAUSE TONIGHT

I HOPE TOMORROW FINDS ME, SAFE IN THE ARMS OF LOVE

I PRAY TOMORROW COMES AND YOU'LL BE THERE

IN YOUR EYES THE DREAMS, WE PROMISED WE WOULD SEE

COME TOMORROW, BRING THE DAWN OF YOU AND ME

BECAUSE TONIGHT, FEELS A LOT LIKE FOREVER

BECAUSE TONIGHT, EVERY MOMENT HANGS IN SILENCE WITHOUT YOU

BECAUSE TONIGHT, IS NOT SOMEWHERE, I WANNA BE

I NEED YOU NEAR, I NEED YOU HERE

BECAUSE TONIGHT, BEING HERE WITHOUT YOU

JUST ISN'T ME

WHEN YOU SEE THE STARS TONIGHT, DO YOU REMEMBER?

CAN YOU STILL TASTE THE WINES OF PASSION DEEP?

AND WAKE TOMORROW, DO YOU MISS THE NIGHT NOW GONE?

WAS THERE ENOUGH TO HOLD YOUR HEART FOR ME?

CHORUS

BRIDGE

I CAN'T SPEND MY WHOLE LIFE RUNNING FASTER

LEAVING IN MY WAKE THE ONLY DREAMS

YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE, YOU'RE MY FOREVER LOVE

AND TONIGHT, BEING HERE WITHOUT YOU

YES TONIGHT BEING HERE WITHOUT YOU

BECAUSE TONIGHT, BEING HERE WITHOUT YOU, JUST ISN'T ME

Field of Broken Dreams

1FIELD OF BROKEN DREAMS - 1994

I'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE MY EYES THIS DREAM

I'VE NEVER KNOWN WHAT MAKES THIS CHILD TO SEE

LIKE TEARS FROM A MOUNTAIN

POURING GENTLY TO THE SEA

A CURIOSITY, WILL YOU DARE TO TOUCH MY SOUL?

IS LOVE SO FRAIL THAT WE CAN'T HOPE TO BE

MORE THAN WE ARE, MORE THAN OUR HEARTS CAN SEE

AND IF FOR ANY REASON,

ON THIS FIELD OF BROKEN DREAMS, WE STAND TO LOSE IT ALL

THEN FOR YOU, I WILL DO IT WILLINGLY

IF THIS IS OUR MOMENT CAPTURED IN TIME,

ALWAYS TO SUSTAIN

FOR LOST IN YOUR EYES I FIND

ARE THE ONLY MEANS TO REMAIN

SEARCHING RELENTLESSLY

JUST LIKE A CLOUD, SHE CHASES HER RAIN

WE'LL STAND HERE FIRM

FOR WE ARE AN ISLAND, PROTECTED BY LOVE

ON THIS FIELD OF BROKEN DREAMS

IT'S NEVER CLEAR THIS PATH OF DESTINY

THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE, TO FIND OUR NEED TO BE

ELUSIVE AS A RAINBOW,

WE CAN TRY TO STEAL HER GOLD

BUT SHE'LL GIVE IT WILLINGLY

WILL YOU DARE TO ASK HER THOUGH?

WE'LL FIND A WAY WE MUST BELIEVE IN US, HMM..MM

THERE'LL COME A DAY, WE'LL SOAR AND WHEN IT DOES

THE SKY WILL HAVE NO BOUNDARIES

I WILL CHALLENGE EVERY SEA

I WILL NEVER LOSE THIS DREAM

CAUSE FOR YOU, YES, I'LL DO IT WILLINGLY

LEFT ME EMPTY WITH NOTHING TO SAY

I'VE MOVED ALONG, THIS NEW YORK MINUTE

I'M ON MY WAY....

Chorus:

ON MY WAY I'M CHASING RAINBOWS

ON MY WAY TO LOVE AGAIN

WITHOUT REGRETS, I'LL FEEL NO SORROW

FOR TO-DAYS' A BRIGHTER DAY

It Only Gets Better From Here

1IT ONLY GETS BETTER FROM HERE - MARCH 10TH, 2006

YOU'VE WALKED THE LINE

YOU'VE SERVED YOUR TIME

YOU'VE SEEN THE HARD ROAD

THE BITTERNESS LIFE SHOWS

AND YOUR STILL FIGHTING UPHILL

YOU'VE BEEN DOWN TIME AGAIN

YOU'VE HAD YOUR SHARE OF RAIN

YOU'VE FELT THE REAL FEAR

OF LOSING WHAT'S MOST DEAR

BUT YOUR SMILE'S CONVINCING ME STILL

IT ONLY GETS BETTER FROM HERE

YOU'LL SEE THE ANSWERS QUITE CLEAR

CAUSE NOW I'M BESIDE YOU, MY HEARTS INSIDE YOU

IT ONLY GETS BETTER FROM HERE

YOU'VE BEEN LOST MANY TIMES

YOU'VE BEEN TREATED UNKIND

BY THOSE THAT YOU'VE TRUSTED

YOUR HEARTS BEEN RUSTED

BY TEARS OF A ONCE HURTING MIND

YOU'VE HAD MORE THAN YOUR SHARE

YOU'VE DONE MORE THAN JUST CARE

LET DOWN BY TRUE LOVE,

IT'S WHAT YOU WANT MOST OF

WELL DARLING NOW IT'S YOUR TIME...

Jack Boy

Jack Boy by kate of kaia - Nov 19th, 2014

I'm a wakin' up the Jack boy, He's a Bowin' to the right

Dazzled by the damsel, As she dances through the night

The Faeries gather pixie dust, To sprinkle in their hair

There's to be a celebration Can't ya feel it in the air?

Jack Boy oh Jack Boy, bow ye to the right

Jack Boy oh Jack Boy ya look a ragged sight

Jack Boy oh Jack Boy oh what's a bride to do?

So bow the mid that Jack Boy did, And all heaven bowed then too!

The storms of winter's tempest, Have now yielded to the spring

As the angels and the dragons, Form the circle. a song to sing

A voice was heard from heaven high, As Gideons' trumpet loosed

The harp whose voice long silenced cries, Returns the gold to Mother Goose

Chorus: Jack Boy

And dance they did and dance they will, In the heart forevermore

Where heaven's fire burns deep within, Where sorrow is no more

With single voice we give a shout, Ol' Jack boy's made it home

At long last faith has found his crown, Intact though a little worn

Chorus: Jack Boy

The crown of thorns, now smooth as silk, Has been finally worn enough

It took a head as hard as stone, And a loving heart made tough

But ol Jack Boy knew the bride he loved, He'd settle for nothing less

Than all he had and all he'd give, When yer courtin' heavens best

Chorus: Jack boy

 

Only Hearts

1ONLY HEARTS

Does the rain still fall from where you stand?

Are you not quite sure of you?

Does the heart that pound within you now,

Really know what must be true?

Is the sun forever hiding?

have you still got clouds to see?

There I am the rainbow to guide you.

If you please.......?

Only hearts this strong can weaken

Only hearts this strong can cry

Only hearts that feel the way ours does

Can understand the why...

Only love as strong as kindness

Can release you from the chains

Of a love so strong for someone true

Only hearts like ours remain.

Can you feel the storm clouds moving?

Are the pictures getting clear?

Do you at long last see the heart that's mine?

You must know that I am near.

I will take you in my arms tonight,

I will show you what it means.

To at last see why, to know the love,

That only hearts like ours can see.

Pretty Eyes (There's more to you)

1PRETTY EYES (THERE'S MORE TO YOU) - FEB 4TH 2007

PRETTY EYES, AMAZED AND FILLED WITH WONDER

WHAT A FRIEND I HAVE IN YOU

PRETTY EYES, WHAT A SPELL I'M UNDER

SO MUCH SO THERE'S NOTHING I WON'T DO

SINCE YOU SHOWED ME THERE'S MORE TO YOU

THAN MEETS YOUR PRETTY EYES

THERE'S MORE TO YOU LEFT TO FIND

BEHIND THOSE PRETTY EYES

PRETTY EYES

YOUR SMILE INCITES AFFECTION

MELTS A HEART AND HEALS THIS OLD ONE TOO

PRETTY EYES, THEY'RE WINDOWS LEFT WIDE OPEN

LETS ME COME IN FROM THE COLD TO FEEL BRAND NEW

SINCE I'VE KNOWN YOU THERE'S MORE TO YOU

YOUR FIRST BREATH TOLD ME WHY

IT'S MORE THAN PRETTY EYES A DAUGHTER'S LOVE

IS WHAT YOU FIND INSIDE

NOW CLOSE YOUR EYES

WITH KISSES OF A BUTTERFLY, BE STILL

I'LL BE WAITING, WHEN MORNING FINDS

AGAIN, YOUR PRETTY EYES

FOR EMILY AND HILARY

Save It For Sunday

1SAVE IT FOR SUNDAY JAN 13TH 2008

HAVING FAITH AIN'T A PROBLEM AT LEAST NOT FOR ME

SO WHAT SHOULD IT MATTER WHAT WE EACH BELIEVE?

IS IT WORTH GETTING ANGRY OR FOR WAGING MORE WARS

CRUSADE BY EXAMPLE RELIGIONS' A HANDFUL

THAT CLOSES MOST DOORS

Chorus:

SAVE IT FOR SUNDAY, YOU CAN PREACH TO ME THEN

SAVE IT FOR SUNDAY, IT'S MY CHOICE FOR WHEN.

I'M GLAD YOU FOUND SOMETHING

THAT YOU CAN BELIEVE IN

BUT YOUR JUST ONE MORE OPINION

IN A BIGGER WORLD TO-DAY....SAVE IT FOR SUNDAY.

I CAN SENSE BY YOUR PASSION

THAT YOU'VE FOUND YOUR WAY

BE IT BUDHA OR MOHAMMED OR TO JESUS YOU'RE SWAYED

THERE'S JUST ONE THING THAT SCARES ME

NOT YOUR VERSION OF HELL

IT'S THE FACT THAT WE'RE ALL WRONG

IF WE DON'T SING TO YOUR SONG

SO I'LL JUST WISH YOU WELL

I DON'T NEED A PULPIT TO KNOW WHEN I'M WRONG

I DON'T NEED A HEAVEN TO FEEL I BELONG

I'LL TRUST IN THE GOODWILL

OF MY FELLOW MAN I'LL TRY TO NOT CROSS HIM

WHERE MY ACTIONS WON'T COST HIM

GIVE NO REASON TO HATE.....

Shadow Road

Shadow Road by kate and co

Early in the Morning, before the sun came up,

I felt a night wind blowing at the crossroads in the dust.

Standing there I saw a man, bloodstains on his soul,

A glint in is eye as cold as steel, one pocket full of gold.

"Say young man?" he beckons with one finger of his hand

"Come, sit with me and talk a while and I'll help you understand."

"What it takes to play this game, one lesson yet to learn."

"The road from here is never clear, beware your every turn."

"Make no mistake, I tell you true, the just man will prevail."

"No sacrifice is worth the price, you see you must not fail?"

"On down the road, I've travelled far, I've lived ten lives in one,

And what I've learned, I'll give to you, my playing days are done,

Yours have just begun!"

I listened close to every word, I hung on every line.

An hour passed he checked his watch said "Boy, that's all my time"

"The rest I fear is up to you, I've told you all I can."

With that, he turned and walked away and faded into time.

So there I stood, a shaken man, not sure what I had seen.

I knew the face but I couldn't place the man that might have been.

And as i walked down the road, I looked but couldn't see

It was as if it was never there, that crossroads by the tree.

Inside the storm was rising, like a tempest brewing strong

I felt the waves crash over me, I knew I wasn't wrong.

Up to this point I've lived my life one worry at a time

And still the echo of that word rings loudly in my mind

Since that hour so long I did ponder what he said

I've seen this world, I've lived my life, I've woke the living dead.

And now I'm sure I know that man, I see him every day.

Those staring eyes, as cold as steel..."Shadow!" was all he said.

I listened close to every word, I hung on every line.

An hour passed he checked his watch said "Boy, that's all my time"

"The rest I fear is up to you, I've told you all I can."

With that, he turned and walked away and faded into time.

With just that word, he'd said enough, the rest was in his eyes,

For on the day the night wind came, I hadn't realized.

Across the boundaries, set in time, I had planted just one seed.

And built that road across my path where the future came to me,

Where the future came to "Be!"

Where the future came to "Be!"

 

She's Found Love

SHE’S FOUND LOVE1

SHE DREAMED A LITTLE LONGER THAN

SHE THOUGHT SHE MIGHT HAVE DONE.

SHE NEVER IMAGINED SHE’D FALL FOR ANYONE

SHE’D BEEN HOLDING OUT, KEPT HER HEART REAL CLOSE

I GUESS THAT’S OVER NOW….

CHORUS:

SHE’S FOUND LOVE

HE’S FOUND EVERYTHING HE’S EVER DREAMED OF

SHE’S FOUND LOVE

I GUESS THEY’VE WAITED LONG ENOUGH

COULD THIS AT LAST BE THE ONE, SHE’S FOUND LOVE

IT’S FUNNY HOW FATE WORKS WHEN YOU’RE BUSY BEING BLUE

HE’D BE THE LAST ONE TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU

HE TRIES REAL HARD AT BEING STRONG

WON’T TAKE SECOND BEST SO SCARED OF BEING WRONG

CHORUS…..

BRIDGE:

IT WAS A MAKE BELIEVE SHE WAS LIVING COMING TRUE

MADE HER EYES GO BACK TO BEING BABY BLUE

AW YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN HIM SMILE

WHEN HER DADDY GAVE THE BRIDE AWAY,

WALKING HER DOWN THE AISLE

Somethimes, Somehow

1SOMETIMES, SOMEHOW.....SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2007

SOMETIMES I NEED YOU TO HOLD ME,

SOMETIMES, I FEEL SO ALONE.

SOMETIMES I'M SCARED, WHERE I'M JUST NOT THAT STRONG

SOMETIMES, I JUST NEED YOU THERE.

SOMETIMES, I FEEL SO UNCERTAIN

SOMETIMES, I JUST WANT TO RUN

SOMETIMES THIS RIVER'S JUST TOO HARD TO CROSS

SOMETIMES, IT'S ALL COMING UNDONE

SOMEHOW YOU SAVE ME, WHEN LIFE'S LETTIN' GO

WHEN THE REASONS TO STAY AREN'T SO CLEAR

SOMEHOW YOU GAVE THAT LAST OPEN ROAD

SOMEHOW, YOU'RE ALWAYS RIGHT HERE.

SOMETIMES I BLEED ON THE INSIDE

SOMETIMES IT GETS SO HARD TO SEE

SOMETIMES THE MEMORIES OF LIFE GETS ME DOWN

SOMETIMES YOUR STRENGTH'S ALL I NEED

SOMETIMES THIS CROSS GETS TOO HEAVY

SOMETIMES I JUST CAN'T GO ON

WHEN DARKNESS SURROUNDS ME, I CAN COUNT ON YOUR LIGHT

SOMETIMES, LIKE NOW, HOLDING ON.

SOMETIMES THIS OLD WORLDS' JUST CRAZY

SOMETIMES IT FEELS ALL UPSIDE DOWN

IT'S MOMENTS LIKE THESE, WHEN THE STARS DISAPPEAR

SOMETIMES IT'S SO EASY TO DROWN.

You're The Sun To Me

1 YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME - FEB 24TH 2008

EVER WOKE UP, WHEN IT JUST CAN'T GET MUCH BETTER?

TO FEEL THE SUN ON YOUR FACE EVEN WHEN IT'S RAINY

WEATHER?

WHEN NOTHING MATTERS, AS LONG AS WE'RE TOGETHER,

YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME.....YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME......

I CAN'T REMEMBER EVER FEELING LIKE I'M FEELING,

HEAD IN THE CLOUDS ALL DAY, GOT ME FLYING, GOT ME REELING.

AND THERE AIN'T NO WAY, MY HEART CAN'T BE CONCEALING.

YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME....YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME....

AND I FIND, JUST A LITTLE BIT

MORE AND MORE EACH DAY.

ANOTHER REASON THAT'LL SETTLE IT

I KNOW I'VE FOUND MY WAY

ALL I HAD TO DO WAS LOOK....FAR ENOUGH TO SEE

YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME....YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME....

I'VE GOT MY REASONS BUT THEY WON'T NEED EXPLAINING,

FOR WHY I SMILE ALL DAY EVEN THOUGH IT'S ALWAYS RAINING.

YOU'RE THE ONE THING THAT IS CONSTANT AND SUSTAINING

YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME.....YOU'RE THE SUN TO ME.....
