Hi Folks,

Remember: You can ONLY enter 1 lyric per member. If you co-wrote the song with another member, it only counts against the one posting. All lyrics posted after the first one by the same member will be deleted!
Please see the rules (they're pretty simple) on this message board.

This is the post where you will add your own lyric entry. Once this hits a large number, I will add a second. You can only post replies on this message board (as opposed to creating your own NEW post.) This is so we can keep all the entries together.

Do NOT post questions or critiques to others songs on this post. We will delete them because this is meant for entries ONLY. We will have an additional post for questions on this forum.

Remember, place full title, full names of writers/co-writers, date of copyright (it doesn't have to be 2002) so we can contact you. DON'T post personal contact info here. We will email those who get nominated for more info. Repeat: DON'T post your personal contact (i.e. phone number, addresses etc...).

I will edit and assign a number to each entry as it progresses. (i.e. I will give you a number like 1, 2, 400, 2,312 etc..). These numbers will be used for judging and voting. DON'T add your own number!

If you want to email a question, send it to me directly at jpfolkspro@aol.com. Place "Lyric Entry Question" in the subject header. Or, post your question on the appropriate posting here.

Thanks and let the posting begin!

PS: To add your lyric, hit the "Post Reply" button on the top right of this page.

This song is done in the key of "JAZZ"
"Your Smiles The Key" All rights reserved..
Al Alvarez Copy 2002

"Your smiles the key"

Sunsets, moonsets, smiling faces
Deserts, mountain rains...
Dandolions lost in places
Never feeling pain...

Abstract colors,movie lovers
Bonds we mean to tie...
Kites in flight and birds in hover
Men who yearn to fly...

(Chorus)
Open up your mind feel free
Whos to share your life today with me
Open up your heart go on a spree
Use your soul,your smiles the key

Fountains swelling,fireflies rising
Pollen, nests of jays...
Countless feelings,gents devising
Ladies often stray...

Right or wrong your conscious strong
Lessons learned so well...
A pennie for your thought or song
I swear Ill never tell...

(Chorus)
Open up your mind feel free
Whos to share your life today with me
Open up your heart go on a spree
Use your soul,your smiles the key


(Tag)
Open up...your smiles the key
Open up your heart your smiles the key, the key to me
Open up... your smiles the key
Open up your heart your smiles the key, the key to me...(Fade)

Note:Thought Michael Franks might like this...anyone have his #?...Al The Pal

Right or Wrong
©2002 Willie McCulloch and Joe Rogier


Verse 1
Right or wrong
We left our homes in Eighteen Sixty-One
Followed the flags to the Battle of Bull Run
Right or Wrong
Yankee, rebel, the blue and the gray
Men against his brother, marched into harmís way
Chorus
Right or wrongÖright or wrong
Lord tell me whatís right or wrong

Verse 2
Right or wrong
I wondered as I looked in their eyes
Pulled on the trigger and watched two men die
Right or wrong
Men were falling under the sun
Giving their life, to keep the Union strong

Chorus
Right or wrongÖright or wrong
Lord tell me whatís right or wrong

Bridge
Iíll always remember to the end of my days
The look in their eyesÖ.lifeís final gaze

Chorus
Right or wrongÖright or wrong
Lord tell me whatís right or wrong

Verse 3
Right or wrong
Smoke and dust hung low in the air
At the end of the day, as the bugle horn blared
Right or wrong
The gray had won, the battle was theirís
Eight Hundred lay dead on the field of despair

Chorus (x2)
Right or wrongÖright or wrong
Lord tell me whatís right or wrong

Thousands of Souls (c)Rick Goggin 2001
V1
It was a bright september day
and it began in the same way
they didn't know their time was at an end

What began with hope and dreams
was to end in death and screams
for many of our family and friends
Ch
thousands of souls will never die
cry out for justice to you and I
thousands of souls will never die
cry out for vengeance to an empty sky
V2
Oh it wasn't meant to be
a day of infamy
but it ended up in the blackest kind of pain

well the bravest, they went in
and were never seen again
'cause the sky came crashing down in a bloody rain
Br
i'm haunted by the faces of
the people who have died
the courage of those who raced to help is burned across my mind
V3
all the fire and smoke and fear
won't be washed away by tears
so remember all the people we have lost

well they died so we could be
a people strong and free
it's a shame that freedom comes at such a cost
Ch
thousands of souls will never die
cry out for justice to you and I
thousands of souls will never die
cry out for vengeance to an empty sky

Cell 32

(c)2002 Shandy Lawson (BMI)


I don't look like I belong here
But then none of us do
Smiley looks like someone's grandpa
And I'm just twenty-two
Once I had a life before me
Now all of that's through
By this time next year
They'll put someone else here
In Cell 32

My world measures six feet by nine
That's fifty-four squared
You can take your time but it's still three steps
To walk from here to there
And the rain that falls outside these walls
Is the best drink anywhere
And when my life is through
They'll put somebody new
In Cell 32

They'll send a spiritual advisor
When my big day arrives
And they'll let me see some family
If they can make the drive
And there'll be folks outside, waving signs
About the sanctity of life
But when my life is through
They'll put somebody new
In Cell 32

There's a man who'll stand behind me
With powers near divine
He gets paid a hundred & fifty bucks
To turn that switch three times
He's either underpaid, or overpaid--
I still can't decide
But at twelve-oh-two
They can put somebody new
In Cell 32

LOCH NESS CAFE

I was having lunch with Elvis
At the Loch Ness Cafe
We were talking about the dreams we nailed
And the ones that got away
I said, "I wish I was a star like you
God, I love that rock n roll"
He said, "Finish up your soda, son
And your fries are gettin' cold"
The waitresses are beautiful
But they won't give me the time of day
Why do I keep on coming back
To the Loch Ness Cafe?

Odysseus drank his coffee, black
Then he set out on some trip
And when he thought no one was looking
Lincoln pocketed the tip
I pretended that I didn't see
I just minded my own business
'Cause I knew that the Invisible Man
Was the only other witness
Everybody stares at me
But when I catch 'em, they look away
Why do I keep on coming back
To the Loch Ness Cafe?

At a table in the corner
Where the lights were turned down low
I saw the Kennedys holding hands
With Marilyn Monroe
And J. Edgar Hoover, in disguise,
Was pretending to mop the floor
Near where Castro sat with Sigmund Freud
Comparing their cigars
The busboy says I'm crazy
And he hits me with his tray
Why do I keep on coming back
To the Loch Ness Cafe?

Einstein ordered after me
But they brought his dinner first
(The waiter took a short cut
Through an alternate universe)
In the men's room Adolph Hitler
Was complaining to the Pope
That Pontius Pilate got there first
And used up all the soap

Einstein had a hard time
Trying to calculate the tip
He was counting on his fingers
I could see him move his lips
And Hamlet had an omlet
While Ophelia ate a danish
She said, "You're driving me insane-ish
You're a cold fish with a death wish!"

I stopped in after midnight
For a little bite to eat
When I saw the Loch Ness dinosaur
Sitting in my favorite seat
She had a leather jacket on
And a Jimi Hendrix shirt
She was watching the display go 'round
With those oversized desserts
I said, "I thought that you were dead"
And she said, "No, I've just been away
But I can't resist the cheesecake
At the Loch Ness Cafe"

Never Stopped Loving You by gregory watton/will champlin/zack paull

(V1)
When raindrops flow down your face
Causing day to turn to night
My world is falling into ruins
Fragments disappearing in the night
There's an emptiness inside of me
I know I can't define
And I'm missing you everyday
Baby I'm wanting you tonight
Since the day I left
I can't explain

(C)
Why-I never came back
Don't ask me why
I left you alone that night
But baby I know
Baby I know
I never stopped loving you

I will never stop
I will never stop
I will never stop
Never stop loving you

(V2)
When every truth turns into lies
Tears fall down your face
Now I know the pain you feel inside
How I remember you
Your smile lights up the sky
Sun shining down on you
Will you let me come home tonight
I wanna try to make things right
With you and I-
Since the day I left
I can't explain

(C)
Why-I never came back
Don't ask me why
I left you alone that night
But baby I know
Baby I know
I never stopped loving you

Bridge :

Baby I know
Never told you why
I've been searching for you

Baby you know
Tell me why
Never stopped loving you yeaahhh

(C)
Why-I never came back
Don't ask me why
I left you alone that night
But baby I know
Baby I know
I never stopped loving you

She's Back (The Absent Father)

Verse:
I drove down to the precinct station; it was a desolate, dirty day and the sky was lea-king;
O, my precious darling daughter, I couldn't bear to hear the hateful words that you were spea-king;
In your haunted, hollow eyes, I saw a demon fly (and she was dan-cing);
On a ruby-painted spear, she impaled your happy years (she was so entran-cing).
I cut the check and signed the forms, thinking of your wasted arms...
and broken doors;
When you spat the word 'Father' like a curse, you saw past your raging thirst to the guilt and terror that I wore...

Chorus:
She's back... on the streets again...
Should I call my lawyer friend?...
Is it too late to send - a greeting, or a warning, birthday kisses, one more morning?
Oh, it's the end....

Bridge:
Ev'ry absent father knows that the love of a mother flows... unceasingly;
And I had always thought that the fractured time I'd bought would bring some peace in me;
But oh, not so...... Oh, it's the end....

Verse:
I drove down to the county morgue; it was a blighted, blinding night and the sky was fall-ing;
I saw a spectre of yourself, clothed in rosy glowing health, and I heard it call-ing:
"Father why'd you leave me here, in this bitter house of tears, where love had died?"
I answered, "Dad will always be, right here when you're needing me.", but I lied.
There beyond the glass where hist'ry ends, I looked down and tried to pretend...
that you were sleeping;
Prayers to Father Death and tortured Son sprang to my lips, but you were gone...
beyond my keeping...

Chorus:
She's back... from the streets again...
Should I call my lawyer friend?...
Is it too late to send - a greeting, or a warning...............
Yeah, she's back... from the streets again,
No need to call my lawyer friend...
Yes, it's too late to send - a greeting, or a warning, birthday kisses, just one more morning...

SOUTHERN LULLABY

Music and Lyrics by Miri Hunter Haruach

Iím rockiní you to sleep
With my southern melody
Iím rockiní you to sleep
Under sweet magnolia trees

Smell the peach blossoms in the air
Hear the birds singiní everywhere
Southern lullabies never die
Southern lovers never say goodbye

Iím makiní love with you
On a starry autumn night
Iím makiní love with you
On a warm October night

Weíll make a harvest of our hearts
And our souls will never part
Southern Lullabies never die
Southern lovers never say goodbye

Iím rockiní you to sleep
Iím rockiní you to sleep
Iím rockiní you to sleep
With my Southern Lullaby

"Sweet Patty"
words (& music) by Christene LeDoux
copyright 2002/BMI
(A song dedicated to my mom, Patty)

V: I'm just a litte girl, with my skinny legs
without a family in this orphanage
my ma she left me a note today
sewn in my favorite doll an I'm sad cuz' I left it in the rain

V: I can see it from this window pane
It's raining harder & it's getting wet
here comes the warden an she's throwin it away
filled with my mama's last words that I never read:

Chorus: Sweet Patty I hope you understand, I didn't want to leave you like I did
you know I love you and I hope that you love me back
Don't forget these words Sweet Patty, carry them

V: I'm married now with my own kids
sometimes I swear that I see you in them
my girls they ask me, where grandma went
I tell them the story of that rainy day

Chorus: Sweet Patty I hope you understand, I didn't want to leave you like I did
you know I love you and I hope that you love me back
Don't forget these words Sweet Patty, carry them

V: I just turned 60 this past Spring
I've got 4 grandkids and I thank god for them
I don't know how I've made it, without you here
I'm still that little girl in that orphanage

Chorus: Sweet Patty I hope you can hear me
I want you to know that I never left
You know I love you and I know that, you love me back
don't forget these words sweet patty, carry them...
carry them
carry them

Very Good Year
Copyright 2002
Words& Music by George Pegula

And so I said
it's not enough to be in love
there is more to understanding
all the words I'm speaking of

I confess
although it hasn't been that long
when you wrap your arms around me
I could never feel that strong

through it all
we've seen the smile behind the tear
found the laughter in our fear
I have to say
it's been a very good year

in your eyes
I can live through yesterday
when we both thought of each other
when there were no words to say

time
can only tell who's wrong or right
the answers that we're searching for
the truth behind the light

in the end
what matters most is here
when I see you standing near
I have to say
it's been a very good year

thank you
for a very good year

"I Fell In Love With You Overnight"
written by Joel Aronowitz c.1975

(Chorus)
Oh, I fell in love with you overnight,
Or is it infatuation at love's first flight?
All you gotta do is kiss me and convince me
tonight.
Oh, I fell in love with you overnight, overnight.

V1
The sunset on the water keeps the day just out of reach,
And the time is growing nearer as love's first lesson you'll teach.
Alone together at the dawn of night shifting sands on the beach.
You make love so well...I fell

V2
It's all I expected and I still want more.
Is it love or fascination and which one will endure?
And your body glistening in the moonlight, a temptation I can't ignore.
You make love so well...I fell.

(Chorus)

V3
The cool winds of the morning wake us side by side,
And I ask you if you love me or if your passion lied.
You said, "If I didn't love you, I'd have never been your guide".
You make love so well...I fell.

(Chorus)
Oh, I fell in love with you overnight,
Or is it infatuation with love's first flight?
All you gotta do is kiss me and convince me tonight.
Oh, I fell in love with you overnight, overnight.
I fell for you!

Hi, Brian!

Here's My Entry:

MEANING
(c) 1999 MelMul Music
WOrds and Music Michael A. Melton
& Joseph V. McMullen

(Verse 1)
Have you ever sat at the end of the road
Looking down the deep ravine?
Did you ever awaken from a dream-filled sleep
And wonder "What did that mean?"
Did you ever feel your soul was in Limbo
And your feelings were locked up tight?
Have you ever felt so all alone,
A speck in the blackness of night?

(Build 1)
Did you ever think about existence
And why we strive for perfection?
Have you ever wondered to the point of tears
Why people crave affection?

(Chorus)
What are we looking for?
Are we looking for meaning,
Or is it something more?
A search for the spirit,
A search for the truth?
Or are we afraid to find
We are a figment of our own imaginations?

(Verse 2)
Have you ever gazed o'er the edge of a roof
And wondered what a jump might bring?
Have you ever held the hand of a dying friend
And waited for the angels to sing?
Have you gazed into the eyes of an insane man
And felt his delusion was true?
Have you met face-to-face
With an ancient soul
And felt like such a fool?

(Build 2)
Have you ever loved a person so deeply
After discovering their imperfections?
Do you believe beauty is skin-deep,
Or do you seek integrity in a deeper direction?

(Chorus)
What are we looking for?
Are we looking for meaning,
Or is it something more?
A search for the spirit,
A search for the truth?
Or are we afraid to find
We are a figment of our own imaginations?

(8 bar instrumental)

(Repeat chorus)

(outro, end)

Thanks Brian!

Good Luck to all of us!

Mike Melton

beside u
copyright 2001 artemis robison


the dis-ease of this trust
is mended by
the silver light of silence
the blue of a boyhood sky
riverís running backward
like a child of a wandering mind
slippery with forgetting
and iím feeling fine
feeling fine

bring your night out in the daylight
bring your night

for now i walk beside u
for now i walk beside u

canít kill the mystery
canít put it to sleep
makes me think iím crazy to keep
running circles round the silence
trying to raise the dead
canít overload the current
itís a strong thread

from one day to another
a life and back again

i study the method of resurrection
state of grace my prize possession
living like lovers do
nothing can harm you
nothing can harm you

in your footsteps orchids blooming
iím a fool to keep assumingÖbut

for now i walk beside u
for now i walk beside u

canít kill the mystery
canít put it to sleep
it can drive you crazy
it can drive you crazy to keep
running circles round the silence
trying to raise the dead
fingers try to break it
but itís a strong thread
show me another country
dressed in colors not invented
by an earthbound mind

for now i walk beside u
for nowÖ

the sweetest flowers are late to bloom
snake slides sideways in the sun
slippery with forgetting
feeling fine

just another child asking why

NIGHTTIME MAN
copyright 1996 Craig Moorhead

It got so bad last year
My New Year's resolution
So bad I could not hear
Had to find a solution
A magnetic band
Gave me a hand
Now I no longer need that daytime drug
I'm a nighttime man

Your transvestite coke
Your gay heroin
These days it ain't strange and you've made it so
To be alien
But you're point shaving
And you're shock craving
And I can no longer provide the time
That I'm saving

It's infidelity
So many confessions
And it's menage a threes
Demonic posessions
So state your case
To save your face
And if the boxes give just the right rate
The black hole stays
Cause you're point shaving
And you're shock craving
And I can no longer provide the time
That I'm saving
A magnetic band
Gave me a hand
Now I no longer need that daytime drug
I'm a nighttime man

TURQUOISE AND SILVER
© 2001 Janice Messer & Blake Hill
Music by Greg Austin

Watching her sleep here beside me
I'm amazed at how far we've come
From the poorest side of Santa Fe
So in love and way too young

I saved up my tips from the drive-in
To buy her a gold wedding band
I couldn't afford the ring that she wanted
So I made a change in my plan

(Chorus)
Turquoise and Silver
Was all I could give her
I wished it was diamonds and gold
Turquoise and Silver
I promised forever
One heart to have and to hold

Nothing in our life came easy
A furnished room was our first home
Two hard jobs and sixty long hours
We were barely hangin' on

Workin' my way up the ladder
I never once heard her complain
With love and hard work in time we succeeded
But some things remained just the same

(Chorus)
Turquoise and Silver
Was all I could give her
I wished it was diamonds and gold
Turquoise and Silver
I promised forever
One heart to have and to hold

(Bridge)
On our fifteenth anniversary
I promised her a new wedding band
She could have had any ring that she wanted
she smiled and said "You don't understand"

(Changed Chorus)
Turquoise and Silver
Means more now than ever
I still don't need diamonds and gold
Turquoise and Silver will stay on my finger
Because it's the ring that you chose

(Tag)
When our hair turns to silver
'Til the end of forever
She'll wear the ring that I chose

Skyline Drive
(c)2002 Jerry Dearborn
She's a wife and mother in her home
She knows what she needs she gets it done
When she likes to get away and hide
She wants that time by herself sometimes

(chorus)
Skyline Drive-She sits and watches the sun go down
Sees what's going on in the surrounding towns
Her private heaven,her paradise
She gets alone with God on Skyline Drive

She keeps her house,manages the bills
Love for family is her one thrill
She likes to go when she has time
To that place where she can ease her mind

(chorus)
Skyline Drive-She sits and watches the sun go down
Sees what's going on in the surrounding towns
Her private heaven,her paradise
She gets alone with God on Skyline Drive

(bridge)
No one knows where this place is
Not even her man or their two kids
Sometimes when they just can't be apart
She runs away there in her heart

(repeat chorus)

'Place by the river'
©1999 Jeza

Over by the river
there's a place I'd like to take you
You can sit
with your feet in the water
in the shade
I always used to go when I was younger
Now it's overgrown
but it hasn't changed

Everybody has to have
a place where they can go to
That's the place where
you know you're going to be alone
I never get tired of the river
It always sings the same song
(been so long)

Just along the road
there's a house I'd like to make you
We can have a home
with a fire and a family inside
Just to have a place by the river
That's the only place I'd be satisfied
(It's a feeling inside)

Everybody has to have
a place where they can go to
That's the place
where you know you're going to be alone
I never get tired of the river
It always sings the same song
So sing along - wo wo wo
Water flow, water flow, water flow, water flow, water flow
Water flow, water flow, water flow, water flow, water flow
Water flow wo wo wo
Water flow, water flow, water flow, water flow, water flow

Just over the mountain
there's a valley with a river where I wanna go
You can sit
with your feet in the water in the shade
It could be the Garden of Eden
You could see the mist from heaven
That's where God breathed life into man
Take my hand

Blame
©2002 Amelia Rose

(V)

We've learned to play the game
A charade to other eyes
We hide from them our secrets
The destruction and the lies

This illusion of a marriage
Disappears when we're alone
True feelings show their hatred
As war rages through our home

(CH)

Blame.. serves no purpose
On endless nights of fear
Tempers flare between us
As anger bleeds through tears
When the battle's finally over
The scars will still remain
But blame..serves no purpose
It can't erase the pain

(V)

Divorce became an option
'Till convenience changed our minds
Ignoring broken promises
We gave us countless tries

But harsh words breed as habits
They're impossible to break
Now we're back to the beginning
In misery, we can't escape

(CH)

Blame.. serves no purpose
On endless nights of fear
Tempers flare between us
As anger bleeds through tears
When the battle's finally over
The scars will still remain
But blame..serves no purpose
It can't erase the pain

(Bridge)

Our family has been torn apart
We can't win back what's lost
Blame won't undo the damage
We've already paid the cost

(CH)

Blame.. serves no purpose
On endless nights of fear
Tempers flare between us
As anger bleeds through tears
When the battle's finally over
The scars will still remain
But blame..serves no purpose
It can't erase the pain

(Tag)

Because blame, serves no purpose
It will never erase the pain

THIS GIFT'S FOR YOU
Copyright 2000 by Diana S. Tyler

I knew a man ruled by pleasure;
Excess accumulation occupied his leisure.
He had a fine appreciation for their gifts,
when friends would call,
But he one day realized he lacked
the greatest gift of all.

'Cause he met a man who's used to giving,
Who feels a bounty in the everyday of living.
He has a joy because a miracle
proclaimed beneath a star
Makes a difference in the way he lives,
and no matter who you are--

This gift's for you. This gift's for you.
No matter who you are or what you do.
It's not beneath a Christmas tree,
it's not in shiny paper.
Your present's wrapped in swaddling
and lying in a manger--
This gift's for you.

I know you've seen your share of sorrow,
Those days you wonder, "What's the use?"
of your tomorrows.
It's been a year of uphill climbing,
things are harder than before,
And now, this year, it doesn't seem
like Christmas anymore.

But I know a man who feels your sadness,
Proclaims good news and brings release
to all us captives.
So if you listen closely, you can hear
the angel chorus sing,
Saying, "Peace on earth, goodwill to all,
Come and greet your newborn King."

'Cause this gift's for you. This gift's for you.
For all the pain and trouble you've been through.
So decorate your Christmas tree,
sing a song that's light.
Come out of the darkness,
celebrate the birth of Christ--
This gift's for you.

God cared enough to come to us
a lowly, mortal babe.
So when you're out tonight,
Will you share the light?
Is there one to whom you'll say:

"This gift's for you. This gift's for you.
Wherever you may live or what you do."
So gather 'neath the mistletoe,
sing a song that's light.
Honor Christ the Savior,
and claim this holy night.
'Cause this gift's for you.
This gift's for you.
This gift is for you.

(Sorry--I forgot the signature! Please excuse the newbie!)

TOP HEAVY
BY DAVID GROSSMAN 2002

Iím alone
Full grown
Generation extra extra extra
One too many
To be anyone
You got to look out
For number one
And the ones you love
Under the sun
Itís a card toss
Up in the air
With a few here and there
Who donít care
Where it lands
a few dirty hands
Ruins all of the childrenís plans

ITS TOP HEAVY

Hey Mr. CEO
Break up the bonus
Water what you grow
Come the new year
If it looks clear
That the profitís are up
Weíd like to see some down here
ďcause the work force
Wants a divorce
From the gap
In the capital
Youíre throwing in your back pocket

TOP HEAVY

Old McDonald had a pharmacy
Selling drugs to people like you and me
Names brands
It costs so much more
To be a Prozac wife
Than to be a crack whore
Itís all about
Where you get it from
Youíre a Riddilan guy
Or an amphetamine bum
A junkie on heroin
A patient on Percodan
Either way your gonna Jones until you find a way to pay the man

TOP HEAVY

Ball players playing ball
See Ďem on TV
they got it all
But up close
on the inside
From you and I
they have to hide
When you slam dunk the truth
One of them makes more money than every youth in a life time
Yours and mine
On the east side
south side
north side
west side
Top Heavy

Rock n Roll will never die
No thanks to ASCAP BMI
If you have a music club in town
You pay these guys
or get shut down
'cause every music club pays a fee
Even when the artist plays for free
Ďcause every song that gets sung
is worth some money
to someone
But who gets what is up in the air
Its not right
And its not fair
See Iím an artist of BMI
My songs get sung in clubs
no lie
But itís not I who gets paid
When songs I write and sing get played
Money collected from clubs Iím in
Get paid to artists
whoíve never been
Near the places where I sing
The BMI checkís made out to STING
If he knew how it went down
Maybe next time STINHG'S in town
Heíll share his gig with a guy like me
Who pays His bills
and plays for free

Top Heavy

"Nothing Ever Happens" (c) 2002 John Taylor

(verse 1)
Stayin alone nowadays
not much to do, not much to say anyways
I guess its just as well I stay inside for now
cause this world never cared for me anyhow

(verse 2)
If you walk away you'll walk right into it
I've found that ignorance will only bring you closer to it
I guess its just as well I never tried to see
'cause nothing ever happens nothing ever happens to me

(chorus)
Why cant we turn around
why cant we do it one more time
why cant we live the lie
That sometimes makes things right

I wanna know, what is I need to be
I wanna know, I need to do to see why nothing ever happens nothing ever happens to me

(verse 3)
Been through darkness, been through light
been through times I wanted to die and thought I might
I guess its just as well I kept it outa sight
cause this world, never cared for me anyhow

(verse 4)
And the only face they saw was mine
but all faces become lies in due time
and there was always that one face I couldnt put to sleep
cause nothing ever happens, nothing ever happens to me

(chorus)
Why cant we turn around
Why cant we do it one more time
Why cant we live the lie that sometimes makes us right

I wanna know what is I need to be
I wanna know what is that I need to see why
nothing ever happens nothing ever happens to me

(verse 5)
The noontime light enters softly through the window
words passing through my ears as the wind blows
and I lay on the floor surrounded surrounded by the sound
of those who never cared for me anyhow

(verse 6)
And the rooms half dark, cause I wont see
those who loved me, those who stuck with me
I wont check if they've turned their backs, cause I've never tried to see why
nothing ever happens, nothing ever happens to me

(chorus)
Why cant we turn around
Why cant we do it one more time
Why cant we live the lie, that sometimes makes us right

I wanna know, what it is that makes me be I wanna know, oh I wanna a know

Why cant we turn around
Why cant we do it one more time
Why cant we live the lie, that sometimes makes us right
I wanna know oh I wanna know why

Nothing ever happens, nothing ever happens, nothing ever happens,nothing ever happens, nothing ever happens to me

Nothing ever happens to me
Nothing ever happens to me
Nothing ever happens to me
Nothing ever happens to me

I always wanted a good paying job But I work for peanuts and feel like a slob I slave all year, Uncle Sam writes back
I stuck with owing more tax.

The world throws lemons, I throw lemonade Where I keep stepping thereís not much made When I try to learn country line dancing Iím the one tripping and finding no romancing.

There could be no mosquito in sight But I'm the one that gets the bite Iíd be driving, and itís just my luck Iíd get behind a slow-moving truck.

(Chorus):

I get stuck with lots of bad luck But donít give up when you get stuck.

I go to a super market and stand in line I'm in the "Express Lane", so things will be fine A person with a check is passing time away If I wasnít in a hurry, Iíd be there all day.

I get no respect, like someone we know Heís that actor in the picture shows If he had no bad luck, as I recall Heíd be like me and have no luck at all.

If I took a trip into outer space I'd get stuck in a crowded place If I went down, deep into the sea Someone there would surely find me.

(Chorus):

I get stuck with lots of bad luck But donít give up when you get stuck.

I wonder whatís the future for me The worldís gone to the dogs, and Iím the tree My advice to you is donít give up Even when you seem to be down on your luck.

Iím the jack of all trades and the master of none But in my life the race isnít won People say, "Thereís no such thing as bad luck" Thatís probably true, but why do I get stuck?

what have i done
© 2001 sharon allitt

they built their buildings under a blue sky
they built their cities tall
they tore down the trees until
there were no trees left at all

then one day they looked around they said
oh lord, what have i done
thereís nothing left for us to look upon
your creation is gone

what have i done
where has it all gone
didnít we leave anything for the generations to come

why do we need to 2nd guess & recreate what we donít understand what we donít know
should we shut off the moon if it shines too bright at night
or turn the sun up if it gets too cold
why do we need so many high priced restaurants when we canít feed the people in the street below
i donít know about you but iíve gotta conclude that i donít want to ask myself this later
i donít want to calculate it

what have i done
what have i done
what have i left here for the generations to come

what have i done
what have i done
what have i left here, what have i effected
what have i saved, what have i neglected
what have i cared for or misplaced
did i vote did i protest
what did i fight for or against
what have i believed in or denied
freely given or chose to hide
have i told a truth or told a lie
took the fence or took a side
been full of it or full of pride
you really do decide
to walk or take the ride
but in my own defense
i could have just followed along

they built their buildings under a blue sky
they built their cities tall....

This is a song I wrote about a year ago called "GONE AWAY"....copyright 2002, Eric Jorgenson, Emotional Holiday Music, ASCAP


THEREíS A HOLE IN MY HEART
THATíS WHERE YOUR SOUL USED TO BE
EMPTY HOUSE EMPTY ME
PARKED THE WRONG WAY ON EMPTY STREET
TOO MUCH REALITY FOR TEN YEARS OR JUST ONE DAY
NOW YOUR GONE YEAH YOUR GONE OH YOUR GONE GONE AWAY

THEREíS A HOLE IN MY HEAD WHERE AN EARRING USED TO BE
WIDE ENOUGH WHERE YOUR GOLD ONCE HUNG IDEALLY
NOW ITíS CLOSED AND ITíS STILL LIKE A DAMNED UP WATER WAY
AND IíM GONE YES IíM GONE OH IíM GONE GONE AWAY

DONíT KNOW WHERE
DONíT KNOW WHEN
DONíT KNOW HOW
DONíT KNOW WHY
WE COULD GET DOWN ON OUR KNEES AND PRAY TO THE SKY
WE CAN TALK ĎTIL WEíRE BLUE BUT THERE IS NO MISTAKE
LIKE THE RAIN FROM THE CLOUDS WE MUST LIBERATE
BEFORE ITíS TOO LATE

THHEREíS A HOLE LEFT IN YOU
WE WERE ONE AND NOW WEíRE TWO
MOVED ALONG LIKE A SONG
STILL ONE RIGHT CANíT FIX TWO WRONGS
TOO MUCH REALITY FOR TEN YEARS OR JUST ONE DAY
NOW WEíRE GONE YEAH WEíRE GONE OH WEíRE GONE GONE AWAY
GONE AWAY GONE GONE AWAY
GONE AWAY GONE GONE AWAY

Braking At Green Lights
written by Shosha Capps
copyright 2002

pretty swing of green
against a rain-lit sky
I've got poppies on my dashboard
got a trunk full of snow
and a hundred miles of desert to go

hey, boy - you ever prayed for rain?
hey, boy - you ever prayed for rain?

cause I've seen you pull it from the sky
and you've see me boiling up my insides
little molten me, poking at the clouds
I don't wanna be your enemy
when it all starts coming down

I'm just six days from taking your shoes off
I'm two weeks shy of forgetting your name
you touch my sleeve like you've open a bible
I drink your wine til it bruises me

and no, babe, this don't have the urgency
you were looking for
but all you pretty genius boys just turn to
water on my floor
yeah, that's my piano
and that's my kerosene -
sometimes we draw roses
sometimes we're just ripping seams

there's a thread of red
it's a pretty bind
I've got poppies steaming up my windshield
got a boy made of snow
who say he got nowhere to go

he say "hey, girl - you better pray for rain
hey, girl, you better pray for rain
pray for rain
pray for rain..."

COMFORT TRAIN

VERSE I
Mama said her gift to me was spoken in her words
Don't make the same mistakes she made, now don't get hurt
'Cause sometimes in your hunger, to please and hold him true
You'll find the color of your life has turned to black and blue
You'll find the color of your life has turned to black and blue

PRE-CHORUS
So hard to stay ...... harder yet to go
But mama's words on the phone that day told me all I need to know...........

CHORUS I
Take the comfort train through New Orleans back home to Tennessee
Or take the fastest plane that you can find and get right home to me
I'm waitin' here with open arms and a love that's yours to hold
All you gotta do is leave All you gotta do is leave

VERSE 2
Mama said she understands, my daddy was the same
Sometimes his life was hard and she tried to bear his pain
But he crossed the line so many times so she finally had to go
Either that or live a bitter life, dressed in black and blue
Either that or live a bitter life, dressed in black and blue

PRE-CHORUS CHORUS 1

BRIDGE
The highest love you'll ever find is the one that's for yourself
Without that love, any other love is hollow as a shell
You'll always let him put you down, you'll always let him win
But mama's words came true today and I found myself again

CHORUS 2
I took the comfort train through New Orleans back home to Tennessee
Didn't need to take the fastest plane, that train was right for me
Mama's here with open arms and a love that's mine to hold
All I had to do was leave All I had to do was leave

I took the comfort train through New Orleans back home to Tennessee
I took the comfort train through New Orleans back home to Tennessee
I took the comfort train through New Orleans............back home

Title: Lady

Lady....
You're a sight to see!
Sweet lady ....
Did you just smile at me?
Or are you and illusion,
A gentle confusion on my mind, Lady?
Oh, you're a sight to see!

Lady....
Where are you taking me?
Sweet lady ....
That's a place in me
That I've never been before.
You are knocking on that door to my heart, Lady!
Oh, where are you taking me?

Lady....
What you do to me!
Sweet lady ....
You have set me free
From the chains that bind me -
The pain that blinds me from within, Lady.
Oh, what you do to me!

(the melody that goes with this has a smooth blues feel to it.)

Amazing Kids
Judy Caplan Ginsburgh
copyright 1991

When I was young, I knew that I
Wanted to sing a song.
And as I grew I learned to sing
And have you sing along.

If you dream it, don't just dream it,
You can do it if you try.
You can be whatever you want to be!
'Cause you're amazing, yes, you're amazing
You can do it if you try!
You're amazing, you're amazing
It's a fact you can't deny.

When you are young you do many things
To see what you do best.
And then one day, you'll discover the thing
You do better than all the rest.

If you dream it, don't just dream it,
You can do it if you try.
You can be whatever you want to be!
'Cause you're amazing, yes, you're amazing
You can do it if you try!
You're amazing, you're all amazing
It's a fact you can't deny.

You can do anything, if you try!!

Crazy Day

Every song you want to sing yourself
Seems to slip away
You start talking to yourself
It's another crazy day
A photo shoot with the devil
I'm just killing time
You start singing to yourself
To make your life ryhme

Chorus

Time, continuous day
You walk the hours away
Time continous day
You drive your life away (dream)

Tell me that it happened
Happened all the way
I don't care now
It's another crazy day
Time on cat like feet
Sneaks away
It's another crazy day

RC

The song starts playing
Then slips away
I need another day
Time slips away
As fragile as you might be
The song still remains
'Cause the lyrics
Make another crazy day

City Of Angels

The city of Angels is crying
The land of sunshine is dying
The streets of gold
Have been recently sold
To the ones with the lowest bids
Mothers and kids
They line the sidewalks
Like hungry hawks
And their babies tear stained eyes
Searchin' the skies
Standing there week after week
Beggin' for something to eat
Their scarred, scabby arms
A donation of the poppy farms
The city of angels have went to hell

Chorus

The city of angels wasn't supposed to fail Money and dreams mixed well
The city of angeles have went to hell
What are we supposed to do?
What are we supposed to do?

And then the little girl said
"Well you made a new sign
from my cardboard bed.
Now where am I going to
lay my head?"
Did our city go up for sale?
Or did it just lose it's veil?
The dreams of what you could be
Are mere memories by the sea
The streets filled with crime
And others just marking time
It's lost it's veil
Oh no it wasn't for sale
It's been abandoned
Is it dead? Is it dead?
The city of angels have went to hell

RC

Title: The Old Wooden Fence
Lyricist: Robert G.Metivier
Copyright: 2001

The old wooden fence
Beaten and torn through the years
By the wind and the sudden storms
-all that nature could conspire to bring.
Yet it somehow managed to hold firm
In its simple purpose
To keep the strangers out and the restless in.


Blistered by the scorching sun
And frozen with the winter sleet
Merciless in their approach
To them a barrier to break
In their unstoppable freedom
But the struggle has its toll
And its frame once strong has since grown old

The workmen said its time to take it down
And build a new one in its place
Its tired planks now broken and spent
Unfastened to the point of disgrace
The nails have left gaping the place
Where long they had held firm
The wounds now far beyond repair.

So the members carelessly taken down
And thrown upon a glowing heap
What once were sap-filled limbs
Its young wood firm and green
Now lies kindling dry for the burn
And to the earth from which it sprung
It now solemnly returns.

Old wooden fence it is no more
Nor any sort of wood at all
Simple offspring of the earth
Ashen dust its final call....
But also fire,- and heat and light
It takes its long-awaited flight
Set free from the nails, and the wind and the storm.

(reprise anthem)
And it is restored though vanquished in flame
Now born anew, an ennobled slave
Released to climb unbound through the clouds
A soul set free from the past and the stony ground

And it is reborn a child of the sky
No more to sustain the wound or the pain
Coursing the air, never meant to return
For now it has attained the end forever yearned.

Copyright © 2001, Robert G. Metivier

Hero Worship
Written by John Chappell, Copyright 1999

Itís not about how many times that they show my face....
Or how much money I get when I claim my place.
You think thereís magic in my smile or strength...
Yet, Iím TV and Music and Faith.
Iím not freedom or love or the end of the race, or the end of the race.

Chorus
Oh, and itís a sad invasion when your hope is based on my station
And you gotta fill your days in with your dreams
Of smashing and bashing my face in.

They call me star or celebrity or fame...
And you buy it with your last dollar this package of shame.
When I donít answer is when you give me the blame.
You need and you want and you beg...
But nothing can make me take your place, no nothing can make me take your place.

Chorus

Bridge
All of those nights that you thought I was the answer....
To your questions.
Every time that you pictured me in your presence...
Was I angry?

Chorus X 2

Cry,Cry,Cry
copyright 2002 Frank Williamson

You go seven miles down Twisted Road
To where the no huntin sign took a buckshot load
Keep to the left till you come To the old adobe

Thereís 80 acres under the Texas sun
Better bring some water cause you won't find none
Donít tell the old woman there how ya come to know me

Or sheís gonna cry cry cry
Sheís gonna cry cry cry
Sheís gonna cry cry cry
Till the tears run dry

Well I spent my youth on that thirsty land
People say I was a Christian man
And that red haired woman made me think I could be a farmer

But it seemed like the devil dogged my heels
I wondered how robbin a rich man feels
Donít you breathe a word if you meet my daughter

Or sheís gonna cry cry cry
Sheís gonna cry cry cry
Sheís gonna cry cry cry
Till the tears run dry

[bridge]
Tired of the dirt
Tired of the battle
You get tired of somebody else
Always getting the gold
Tired oí dried up wells
And half dead cattle
And every day another piece
of your young heart goes cold

I seen the angel o' death in my dreams last night
and I woke up dyin in the dawns grey light
I never been saved and I broke every last commandment

There's a whole lot of gold in this old steel chest
Give half to the woman and keep the rest
I got a lifetime of tears to cry till the hour of judgement

And I'm gonna cry, cry, cry
I'm gonna cry, cry, cry
I'm gonna cry, cry, cry
till the tears run dry

Revolutionary
Revolutionary
Gail Silverman (c)2002

I wanna go down in history
As the age revolutionary
I wanna be the one who didnít make sense
You know the one supposed to be past tense
Yeah Yeah, Yeah Yeah
The one whoís proud to be
Aspiring rock star over 20
[naughty word removed] Iím not dead , but beyond 14
So what the hell do you think that means

No Iím not Christina
And Iím not Brittany
Iím not Brandy
And Iím not Mandy
But itís cool to be the aspiring rock star over 20!

Wanna go down in history
As the girl who wasnít so pretty
I wanna be the band that rocks your world
And doesnít look like cover boys and girls
Like Janis before 70
Before retouching & MTV
[naughty word removed] Iím not a waif, more like Rubenesque
Guess thatís means ďbigĒ success

Iím not Dido
And Iím not Nelly
Iím not Jewel
And Iím no Alicia Keys
Buts its so cool to be
The one who fit perfectly!

Kept telling me I canít play or sing
**** them, I can do anything
They kept telling me blah blah blah
**** them Iím gonna be a rock star!

Iíve got balls and the energy
My tits are real
I got a fine booty
Yeah Yeah
Check me out
Youíll have no doubt

And I may never be Alanis, Janis or Brittany
But its enough to just be me
And Iíll keep it up indefinitely
And Iíll be rockiní even when Iím 70
Iíll keep this up indefinitely
Iíll be rockiní as long as I can breathe
YEAH YEAH!

WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME

1. When I try to quote Shakespeare it comes out like Dr. Seuss
It sounds like Iím talking in tongues
Iíd write you a love song but I know it ainít no use
Iím just not proficent in the language of love

How I wish I could tell you
Everything I feel inside

Chorus:
But what you mean to me
Is more than I know how to say
And what you mean to me
I canít find the words to convey
But look in my eyes when you kiss me tonight and youíll see
Little angel, just what you mean to me

2. I can see the expectation Ė itís written on your face
Each time I open my mouth
I hope you know Iím trying so hard to find a way
To take these emotions and let them all out

How I wish I could tell you
Everything I feel inside


Chorus x 2

(c) 2002 Simon Read & Tom Rae

"Muse"
Written by: Nicholas Depew
Copyright 2001 Changing Seasons Music (BMI)

My hope was in a state of lucid decay.
I searched for an escape.
(But) Encompass me with silence, my mind tries to scream.
Total lack of clarity, complete lack of peace.
Desolate and desperate, I disapait to nothingness.
So as I repress my motives, I try to hide the regrets.

I want to know that you are with me.
(But) I need to know that you can hear me.

Sustained by one cherished moment, I reach for another taste.
Point of no return, I cross again.
Unaware of things beginning, ignorant to their end -
travesty befalls me; betrayed by self.

Return to the familiar.
My fears fall away.

I can't remember where you are, and all this time I tried so hard.
But I hear you; you call me name.
And your voice, it is the same.
I had forgotten you, but you did not forget me.
I had forgotten you, but you did not forget me.

Shattered memories of abandoned dreams - nothing was ever as it seemed.
Shattered memories of abandoned dreams - nothing was ever as it seemed.

Return to the familiar.
A frail facade hides your tears.

I can't remember where you are, and all this time I tried so hard.
But I hear you; you call my name.
And your voice, it is the same.
I had forgotten you, but you did not forget me.
I had forgotten you, but you did not forget me.
I had forgotten you, but you did not forget me.
I had forgotten you, but you will not forget me.

"MAKE ME LONELY AGAIN"
Words/music by Amy Speace
c. 2002/BMI Twangirl Music
(Country waltz)

I sit by my window
And stare at the moon
Iíve held all your letters
'Till my fingers were blue
I recall every moment
Like Iím pressing rewind
I got what I asked for
Now Iím losing my mind

Even when I was younger
I liked being alone
Felt awkward at parties
Didnít go to the prom
While the whole world was dancing
And falling in love
I stayed home in my slippers Watching ĎHarold and Maudeí

I FEEL LIKE IíM DYING
CUZ IíM ALWAYS CRYING
IF THIS IS WHAT LOVE IS
MAKE ME LONELY AGAIN

I didnít date much
Didnít understand why
When girlfriends had crushes
How theyíd giggle and sigh
Love made them seem stupid
Dizzy and lost
I bragged love would never
Tie my stomach in knots

I FEEL LIKE IíM DYING
IíM ALWAYS CRYING
IF THIS IS WHAT LOVE IS
MAKE ME LONELY AGAIN

But when I met you dear
My pride took a dive
I loved you the first instant
You looked into my eyes
Now my whole world is spinning
Iím not sleeping so well
If loveís really the answer
Why does it put us through hell?

I FEEL LIKE IíM DYING
IíM ALWAYS CRYING
IF THIS IS WHAT LOVE IS
MAKE ME LONELY AGAIN

Macbeth (copyright Ingrid Brigitte Frick Loli - 2001)
These lyrics are meant for a R&B song

Iím not Macbeth, Iím not your wife
Iím not your current lover
I am the one the only one
who gets you high on loviní
Iím not a whore, Iím not a slave
Iím not your ex possession
I am the one the only one
who's ever really loved you
for what you are for what youíre not
for what you are becoming.

Chorus : Letís get high together
letís surge up to heaven
letís get high together
letís surge up to heaven

Donít shut me out, donít slam the door
youíll only see the damage
coz when you try to get that high
youíll never really manage.
Just close your eyes and see my eyes
youíll read the hunger growing
just surge with me up to the world
the two of us were knowing
I am the one the only one
who gets you high on loviní.

Chorus : Letís get high together
letís surge up to heaven
letís get high together
letís surge up to heaven

Bridge:
Iím the only one
who getís you high on loviní
Iím the only one whoís ever really loved you.

I am the one the only one
who gets you high on loviní
donít shut me out, donít slam the door
youíll only see the damage
I am the one the only one
who's ever really loved you
for what you are for what youíre not
for what you are becoming.
Perhaps you wonít believe me now
in time youíll feel Iím missing

Chorus
Let's get high together
let's surge up to heaven
let's get high together
let's surge up to heaven....

Rest My Bones
©2001 Corey Parkman

A new day is shining across the railyard
I slice my breakfast with a beer bottle shard
A tin of sardines and a pack of saltines
with a Coke can of water from an artesian spring

A lifetime of heartache has taken its toll
If love is salvation, then Iím a lost soul
I dream unconcerned with the passage of time
and live for the next breath while daylight is mine

(Chorus)
I ainít a rambler
I just lift up my feet
Hold onto my spot
while earth spins underneath
When I reach the place
that my soul is called home
Oh Lord, thatís where
Iím gonna rest my bones

Yesterday was Phoenix, tomorrow Tucson
Always dreamt of the west when I was young
So Iím chasiní the sunsets and seeiní the sights
And Iíll sleep Ďneath the trestle, come the moonlight

I ainít a rambler
I just lift up my feet
Hold onto my spot
while earth spins underneath
When I reach the place
that my soul is called home
Oh Lord, thatís where
Iím gonna rest my bones

Reaching Out To You
Cindy Miller
© 2002

VERSE I (A)
In the middle of a moment
Towards the end of a cry
When youíve almost caught your breath
Near the onset of a sigh
Where dreams break into pieces
And the night is split in two
Thereís still shelter in my arms
ÖReaching out to you

VERSE II (A)
When your bodyís done with battle
And your energy is spent
Youíll remember what youíve lost
Cause the scars are evident
Over time, meanings will change
And the prize feels overdue
Thatís where Iíll be waiting
ÖReaching out to you

BRIDGE (B)
Yesterday can be forgotten
Come in out of the cold
The whole worldís not your problem
Let me carry half your load

VERSE III (A)
Examine my intentions
As you journey through your soul
The bright flickers of honesty
Will guide your heart to know
When the walls fell down upon you
One clear constant is your proof
My love never faltered
I wasÖ Reaching out to you
Reaching out to you
Reaching out to you....

Title: The Race

{I'm hearin' a Little Irish Folk Melody behind this'n'...}

One Fine Seattle Morning
They Held a Special Race:
An Olympics for Kids with Special Needs
To Find Their Special Place--

They Lined Up, There, All 8 of Them
They Heard the Starting Gun..
With a Whoop & Holler, Off They Ran
In a Mighty Special Run...(of)..

(CHORUS)
"THE RACE"..It's ALL-IMPORTANT
"THE RACE"..Is FOR Your PRIDE
"THE RACE"..Says "WHO You ARE"
(You FIND OUT.."WHAT'S INSIDE"..
In.."THE RACE!")

Each Headed Off "A WINNER"
The Race was Goin' Fine...
'Till One Boy Fell, and Skinned his Knee
Then..He Just Sat There, Cryin'

It LOOKED Like He Was Beaten..
It LOOKED Like He Was Down..
It LOOKED Like He Was LOSIN',
'TILL..THE OTHERS..TURNED AROUND, (In)..

(REPEAT CHORUS)
"THE RACE"..It's ALL-IMPORTANT
"THE RACE"..Is FOR Your PRIDE
"THE RACE"..Says "WHO You ARE"
(&..You FIND OUT.."WHAT'S INSIDE"
In.."THE RACE!")

(MUSICAL RIDGE)

(VERSE)
One Girl Came Back, & Kissed Him
'Said "I Hope THIS Makes You Feel GOOD!"
The Other Racers Helped Him Up
NOW..EVERY RUNNER STOOD..

They Linked their Arms and Headed
Back towards The FINISH LINE
NOW..EVERYONE's A WINNER in
The BEST RACE of ALL TIME! (Yes..)

(REPEAT CHORUS)
"THE RACE"..Is ALL-IMPORTANT
"THE RACE"..Is FOR Your PRIDE
"THE RACE"..Says "WHO You ARE"
(You Find Out.."WHAT'S INSIDE"...
In.."THE RACE!"

(BRIEF MUSICAL BRIDGE)

(VERSE)
You Can Still HEAR The Crowd APPLAUDING
You Can SEE Them "On Their FEET!"
Their KIDS Brought SOMETHING SPECIAL OUT
In YOU, In HIM, In ME...

An OLYMPIC, SPECIAL Lesson:
"To WIN..Is A DISGRACE..
If the LOSER's Lying On The GROUND,
You Should HELP HIM FIND HIS PLACE"..In..

(REPEAT CHORUS)
"THE RACE"..It's ALL-IMPORTANT
"THE RACE"..Is FOR YOUR PRIDE
"THE RACE"..Says "WHO YOU ARE" (Yeah)..
(You FIND OUT.."WHAT'S INSIDE"...
In.."THE RACE"...)

(TAG)
You FIND OUT.."WHAT'S INSIDE"...
In..."THE RACE!"

Jesus and the Ice Cream Man
(Copyright 2002 Willie Carmichael and Larry Lampi)

My Daddy's gone on business
Mama's gone to bed
My sister's gone on heroin
I wish I was gone instead
I've given up on all of them
They've done the same you see
When I grow up I'll be a man
But right now I'm only me

I go to church on Sunday
Hear 'em teach about the Lord
Love to hear that preacher testify
About the great reward
I believe I'll get to heaven
With a little faith and luck
It helps to tide me over
'Til I hear the ice cream truck

Chorus:
I've got Jesus and the ice cream man to love me
Everybody else can kiss my ass
They help me bear my heavy load
With bread and wine and rocky road
And teach me someday soon this too shall pass

I pray to Jesus every day
To make a better world
And stop showing me commercials
About starving boys and girls
He sends me dimes and quarters
And all my hopes and dreams
I spend my prayers on hungy Africans
And my money on ice cream

The ice cream man wears glasses
I wear glasses too
He says to trust in Jesus
In everything I do
I put a lot of trust in him
He comes every day on time
I get chocolate chip and one true friend
And he gets all my dimes

(Repeat Chorus)

Repeat 1st verse)

Take The Torch
(C)2001 Marla Reid & Paul Reid

Inspired by the book Jesus Freaks p. 50 & p. 30

The service was held underground
In a secret place so they would not be found
As they listened to the pastor read the word
Suddenly a soldier's voice was heard
"Hand me your Bible!" he cried
Then he threw it down at the pastor's side
And he said the only way you'll live tonight
Is if you spit upon this book of lies
One by one they did as they were told
As they prayed "Father forgive me" they were then let go
But a young girl cried, "What have they done?"
Then she knelt down beside the book she loved
The tear that fell was the last she cried
As a gunshot echoed through the night

She took the torch and ran to the other side
She's in the chain of love that's been passed down through time
She took the torch and ran now she's safe from harm
She ran right into her savior's arms
She ran right into her savior's arms

The young man was only 18
And a soldier for the communist regime
Interrogated for his Christian way
He knew he could not deny his faith
He was told discipline would help him learn
One night standing in the snow would help him turn
But with faith he walked into the bitter wind
Praying for the strength to not give in
One by one the cold nights went by
As God sent him protection from the winter ice
But the tortures grew to his painful death
He served his Jesus with his last breath
In a letter sent just before he died
He told his parents "please don't cry"

He took the torch and ran to the other side
He's in the chain of love that's been passed down through time
He took the torch and ran now he's safe from harm
He ran right into his savior's arms
He ran right into his savior's arms

Lord I pray for the strength to stand
When persecution sweeps this land
May we join hand in hand
And take the torch and run
Take the torch and run
To the promised land

Take the torch and run to the other side
Weíre in the chain of love thatís been passed down through time
Take the torch and run weíll be safe from harm
When we run right into our saviorís arms
Weíll run right into our saviorís arms

Take the torch and run
Take the torch and run
Take the torch and run
Take the torch and run

Are You Looking for Love
Copyright © 2002 by Ryan Gunnin
Him:
I've seen you here before,
But You never noticed me across the floor,
Lookin at you,
Wonderin who, you were waitin for.
Her:
Tonite its the same scene,
I see you in your hat and your blue jeans,
Lookin at you,
Wonderin who, you are waitin for.

Chorus (Together)
I wanna know ...
Are you looking for love.. that will last a life time,
or looking for love.. to last till the next time,
Baby I don't care....
Would you let me be there?
(Musical Break- possible steel guitar)

Him:
I think I 'll take a chance.
Waltz on over and ask you to dance.
What would you say ,
Would you turn away,
Without a second glance.
Her:
He's comin across the bar,
Is he leaving, heading for the car?
If he turns my way,
What will I say?
It's what I'm hopin for.

Him:

I 've made it over and I'll take my shot,
It's taken every ounce of courage I 've got,
Her:

You turn on your charm ,
I take your arm ..
Together:

And we're on the dance floor.
Chorus (Together)
I wanna know...
Are you looking for love.. that will last a life time,
or looking for love.. to last till the next time,
Baby I don't care....
Would you let me be there?
Baby I don't care....
Would you let me be there?

*~CRIES OF ANGELS*~ Jennifer Stills

The sun went down beyond the rim
And I long to feel the desert wind
On my skin

What will this day give me but rain?
My mothers earth, she falls..
She falls to shame

Lay upon me
Night and day

Feed my hunger
Make me stay

Man shall take her beautyís eye
Unhappy plaids, they fill..
They fill the skies

But If you turn your waters wild
Iíll drown my sorrow
For a little while

And the cries of angels will rescue me
The cries of angels are gonna wash me clean

Now thereís no Jesus
To walk on your water blue

Thereís no redemption
Unless itís inside of you

All your lovers
Theyíve gone..
Theyíve gone away

And you ainít got nothing left to do
But get on your knees
And pray

That the cries of angels will rescue you
The cries of angels are gonna see you through
The cries of angels hear you

"The Thrill"

My heart has been scarred, so much I think itís time
To leave this place
To stop the blame or prolong the pain

For the thrill, for the thrill
For the thrill, for the thrill

Nothingís wrong with my heart
It just needs something more
Nothingís wrong with my heart
Is something wrong with yourís?

I know it seems to bother me
But what else could it do
Accept what is thought to be certain
Or stray and maybe find some truth

Nothingís wrong with my heart
It just needs something more
Nothingís wrong with my heart
Is something wrong with yourís?

The life that feels, is the one thatís real

My heart has been scarred, so much I think itís time
To start again, For the thrill

Emotional Highway
© 2002/Tim Keesee

(Verse 1)
Your car was pulled to the roadside
You were searchiní for the jack
I saw your flashing lights that night
So I stopped and helped you change your flat
Well, I canít believe you fell for me
Though, you didnít fall far enough
ĎCause your cheatinís left me over heatiní
On the interstate of loveÖ

(Lift)
OhhhÖthe reality that youíd cheat on me
Tears me up inside
Since then, my heartís been
On an emotional rideÖ

(Chorus)
And, it took a left on ďIím So AngryĒ
Followed by a right on ďLonely DriveĒ
Then, it made a u-turn
On ďLetís Keep Our Love AliveĒ
The road turned into ďDesperationĒ
And dead-ended on ďNot A ChanceĒ
Yeah, my heartís been on the ďEmotional HighwayĒ
Just lookiní for an exit rampÖ

(Verse 2)
Well, I thought you really loved me
I never questioned it before
But, come to find, my heart was blind
To the kind of person you really were
Donít think that Iíll forgive you
For leading me down this heart-break road
ĎCause itís hard to forget the things you did
Once your true colors finílly showed

(Lift)
OhhhÖthe reality that youíd cheat on me
Tears me up inside
Since then, my heartís been
On an emotional rideÖ

(Repeat Chorus)

(Instrumental Bridge)

(Final Chorus)
My heart took a left on ďIím So AngryĒ
Followed by a right on ďLonely DriveĒ
Then, it made a u-turn
On ďLetís Keep Our Love AliveĒ
The road turned into ďDesperationĒ
And dead-ended on ďNot A ChanceĒ
When it gets off the ďEmotional HighwayĒ
Itís headiní down the road to new romanceÖ

Title: My Dream ©August 10, 2002
Submitted by: Marian Longfield


Verse One:

I live in a world of make believe
pretending you still love me,
and we're caught in a storm and lost at sea.

The ship is drifting far from shore,
and I can't hold on any more,
then, suddenly you slip away from me.

Verse Two:

I've made some mistakes along the way --
pretended everything was fine.
And I made believe that you didn't mind.

Now, I'm alone still lost at sea,
hoping you'll come to rescue me;
A love like ours is very hard to find.

Chorus:

I never wanted my dream to come true;
I thought we could weather the storm.
I never meant to let you slip away ...

What goes around comes around they say,
I know what I did was wrong.
Sooner or later there's a price to pay.

Verse Three:

I hoped you would come to rescue me;
but you're still there on the shore.
I guess that you don't love me any more.

My dreams are seldom what they seem --
Is there a message in between?
I've had this dream so many times before.

Repeat Chorus:

Tag: My dreams never have a happy end..
I never wanted to lose my best
friend, so ...I keep pretending my
dream did not come true --no, not until
I could come and rescue you.

"Echoes"
copyright1990
by Gail Lissauer
(Gayle)

Your voice fades in my ear
it's a voice I'll never again hear
silenced too soon
like a radio switched off
in an empty room

Chorus:

Only echoes of you are left behind
Shadows drifting across my mind

Your face fading in my sight
banished to eternal night
blind to your beauty
fallen like a bird
crippled in mid-flight

repeat chorus

Your soul remains somewhere
only spirit lasts forever
yours is a story
with no final chapter
leaving only tears

repeat chorus

Our lives crossed together
weaving a web of love
through downpour and sun
you my protector
yet I the stronger one

repeat chorus until it fades out...
