"IT'S GETTING HOT" LYRICS

Oooh baby, don't you feel the beat
Oooh baby, get up on your feet
Oooh baby, let's work up some heat
Oooh, oooh, it's getting hot

Oooh baby, don't you feel the beat
Oooh baby, get up on your feet
Oooh baby, let's work up some heat
Oooh, oooh, it's getting hot
It's getting hot
It's getting hot
It's getting hot
Oooh, it's getting hot

Let your body move to the beat
Guaranteed to generate some heat
Moving to the rhythm that rocks your soul
Heat is rising and I'm out of control

Oooh baby, don't you feel the beat
Oooh baby, get up on your feet
Oooh baby, let's work up some heat
Oooh, oooh, it's getting hot
It's getting hot
It's getting hot
It's getting hot
Oooh, it's getting hot


        FLYING DOWN TO RIO – AND BACK" SONG LYRICS

IN RIO
Trees Swaying in the Moonlight
The Ocean’s Singing It’s Night Song
Waves Crashing onto Shore
I Remember the Nights Not Long Ago
When You and I Fell in Love in Rio
                                                        
But When You Left Me There,
I Thought this Was the End
The Memory Lingers on                                                        
Of the Thought of the Touch That We Shared
When You and I Fell in Love in Rio

Cool Breezes in the Night
Long Walks on the Beach
Trying to Hold on to a Moment in Time
Making Promises We Could Not Keep

Sweet Thoughts and Memories
A Beautiful Place That Set Me Free
Your Spirit Is Part of Me
In a Place  I Can’t Let Go
When You and I Fell in Love in Rio


SOFT BREEZES      
Soft breezes in your hair;
Gentle melodies that play through my mind.
The way you look at me;
I’m feeling fine and free.
The way you look – I try not to stare
But I can’t help it; the look of you there
Is joy without compare.
                                                                
                      You are the poetry of roses in full bloom;
You make me quiver when you come into my room.
The stars rise and fall just to make you smile.
Please come and sit with me for just a little while.
You radiate the heat of all the suns combined;
I’d travel the universe just to make you mine.
I’d sink into the depths of you, transcending space and time.
        
You make me forget all thoughts of right and wrong;
Let me free my hidden self by singing you this song.

Soft breezes in your hair;
Gentle melodies that play through my mind.
The way you look at me;
I’m feeling fine and free.
The way you look – I try not to stare
But I can’t help it; the look of you there
Is joy without compare.

              You make me forget all thoughts of right and wrong;
Let me free my hidden self by singing you this song.

              Soft breezes in your hair;
Gentle melodies that play through my mind.
The way you look at me;
I’m feeling fine and free.
The way you look – I try not to stare
But I can’t help it; the look of you there
Is joy without compare - Soft breezes in your hair
Is joy without compare - Soft breezes in your hair
Is joy without compare - Soft breezes in your hair


MY FUTURE ROADS ALL LEAD TO YOU
You Are My Fortune Teller When I See Your Eyes
I See My Destiny in You
Other People Walking by They Don’t See It, but I Do
My Future Roads All Lead to You

All of My Other Lovers Blended into One
They Blossomed, Faded and Were Gone
Then I Saw a Flower So Much Better than the Rest
My Future Roads All Lead to You


We Twirl Around Each Other in the Fading Light
Our Bodies Turn to One as Day Turns into Night
Everything That Happens Tells Me this Was Meant to Be
My Future Roads All Lead to You.

You Are My Fortune Teller, When I See Your Eyes
I See My Destiny in You
Other People Walking by They Don’t See it but I Do
My Future Roads All Lead to You

My Future Roads All Lead to You
All Lead to You
All Lead to You
My Future Roads...All Lead to You...


BUFFALO SPEEDWAY
Down on de Buffalo Speedway
De Buffalo, de Buffalo Speedway
I’m going down on de Buffalo Speedway
De Buffalo Speedway

I get into my car to take me a ride
My big fine mama was by my side
Well I turned on Alabama to see what I could see
When a big green sign it beckoned to me....to go

Down on de Buffalo Speedway
De Buffalo, de Buffalo Speedway
I’m going down on de Buffalo Speedway
De Buffalo Speedway

Well the people down there they moving so fast
They don’t see nobody until they have passed
They driving their big fine Texas cars,
But everybody wants to be a racing star

Well my woman hung on to the side of the car
I hung on too but we didn’t get far
A cowboy pulled out in front of me
and I wrapped my auto around a tree

Well the man he get me a new automobile
We climbed right in to see how it would feel
Now I love to drive but ‘till me dying day
I’ll never drive down on the Speedway

I won’t go.......
Down on de Buffalo Speedway
De Buffalo, de Buffalo Speedway
I’m going down on de Buffalo Speedway
De Buffalo Speedway

I won’t go......
Down on de Buffalo Speedway
De Buffalo, de Buffalo Speedway
I’m going down on de Buffalo Speedway
De Buffalo Speedway


THE WAVES COME IN , THE WAVES GO OUT
People come and people go;
They disagree and tell you so.
They always try to change your mind;
Because that’s the way with humankind.

The Ocean of Time Runs on Forever,
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Two Hearts Try to Stay Together,
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Trying Hard Just to Keep Pace.
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Moving With the Earth Through Space.
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.

One day up, the next day down;
You wear a smile and then a frown.
This life is like a bumpy road;
It’s survival’s ever changing mode.

The Ocean of Time Runs on Forever,
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Two Hearts Try to Stay Together,
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Trying Hard Just to Keep Pace.
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Moving With the Earth Through Space.
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.

Too many people, too many things.
Too many paupers, too many kings.
Too much pleasure, too much pain.
But I’ve just got to see you again.

The Ocean of Time Runs on Forever,
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Two Hearts Try to Stay Together,
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Trying Hard Just to Keep Pace.
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.
Moving With the Earth Through Space.
The Waves Come In, The Waves Go Out.


OUR LOVE
Since we’ve been together,
It’s like a dream come true.
All my life I’ve needed
A man as sweet as you.
We share each other’s happiness
and comfort in our sorrow.
Our love is so special,
I look forward to every tomorrow.

Our Love
couldn’t get any stronger.
Our Love
will last a whole lot longer.
Even through the toughest times,
we always found our way.
Our Love
Our love is here to stay.

It’s hard not to wonder
is this love really real?
But the feeling inside me
confirms what I feel.
The love that we share,
money could never buy.
We’ll always be together
until the day we die.

Our Love
couldn’t get any stronger.
Our Love
will last a whole lot longer.
Even through the toughest times,
we always found our way.
Our Love
Our love is here to stay.


HERE WE ARE
Here We Are
Drifting on a Never Ending Sea
Here We Are
Living, Dying, Laughing, Crying Free
If You Could Only See Me as I Really Am
I Believe That You Could Spend Your Life with Me
I Need You like I’ve Never Needed Anyone
But I’m Hiding out Beyond the Farthest Star
And Here We Are

In the Morning Light You Make My Night Disappear
Just a Passing Glance - My Heart Soars Free
I Wish That I Could Find a Way to Calm All My Fears
Then You Would Know Our Love Was Meant to Be

Here We Are
Drifting on a Never Ending Sea
Here We Are
Living, Dying, Laughing, Crying Free
If You Could Only See Me as I Really Am
I Believe That You Could Spend Your Life with Me
I Need You like I’ve Never Needed Anyone
But I’m Hiding out Beyond the Farthest Star
And Here We Are

Here We Are
Drifting on a Never Ending Sea
Here We Are
Living, Dying, Laughing, Crying Free
If You Could Only See Me as I Really Am
I Believe That You Could Spend Your Life with Me
I Need You like I’ve Never Needed Anyone
But I’m Hiding out Beyond the Farthest Star
And Here We Are........


JUST AS I AM
She was caught up in a world where she didn’t belong
all of her life she had been alone,
all that she asked from the men that she met,
Say you love me tonite, and don’t leave me just yet

Won’t someone please love me for who I am
Won’t someone please take me just as I am
I have love ....... so much to give
Without love......I don’t want to live

She could own the world if you judged it by her face
But the sadness in her heart had no resting place
She gave of her love to all the wrong me
No one understood, she just needed a friend..

Won’t someone please love me for who I am
Won’t someone please take me just as I am
I have love ....... so much to give
Without love......I don’t want to live

He walked into her life one day out of the blue
Said girl I’ve been looking for someone like you
They couldn’t believe that it happened so fast
We have a love ...I know that will last.

I’ve got someone who loves for who I am
I’ve got someone who’ll take me just as I am
I’ve go love ....... so much to give
With your love......Now I want to live


"PASSION, PRIDE AND JOY" LYRICS

HAD ENOUGH
I’ve just about...had enough... of your lies
I’ve just about...had enough... you’re everything I despise
I’ve just about...had enough... of the mean things that you do
But I know one thing for sure, I’ve had enough of you....

You’re always sneaking into the house early in the morning
lying again about working overtime
Payday comes around and you come home late
and you haven’t even got a dime

I wash your clothes and find a lot of things
that don’t belong to me
I ask you about them and you smile that smile
that “lying, yes,  I’m lying smile”.

I’ve just about...had enough... of your lies
I’ve just about...had enough... you’re everything I despise
I’ve just about...had enough... of the mean things that you do
But I know one thing for sure, I’ve had enough of you....

That old magic spell you once had over me
Is finally gone and I’m feeling free
So boy come home and pack your stuff
get the hell out, I’m in a rush, Cause I’ve had enough

I’ve just about...had enough... of your lies
I’ve just about...had enough... you’re everything I despise
I’ve just about...had enough... of the mean things that you do
But I know one thing for sure, I’ve had enough of you....

IT’S A GREAT DAY TO BE ALIVE
It’s a great day to be alive
The sun is shining sweet and clear
This day I know that I will thrive
I know who I am, what course to steer
And if I die before it’s over,
It won’t matter much
I’ll just spread my wings in fields of clover
And fly up to touch the hand of God

All creation is bright and bold
Its miracles a sight to behold
Everything seems just and right,
The night is over, my world is bright.

It’s a great day to be alive
The sun is shining sweet and clear
This day I know that I will thrive
I know who I am, what course to steer
And if I die before it’s over,
It won’t matter much
I’ll just spread my wings in fields of clover
And fly up to touch the hand of God


I feel the energy inside me
I’m feeling happy, I’m feeling free.
The why and what and where and when,
And I don’t care about now and then.

It’s a great day to be alive
The sun is shining sweet and clear
This day I know that I will thrive
I know who I am, what course to steer
And if I die before it’s over,
It won’t matter much
I’ll just spread my wings in fields of clover
And fly up to touch the hand of God

THERE IS A CHANCE
I see you everyday when you walk down the street
You’re staring straight ahead and I’m trying to be discreet
I saw you look my way from the corner of your eye
But you just kept on walking by...

There is a chance that I might get to know you
A chance that I might get to know you
But at the rate we’re moving
Our chance of happiness is just a chance

Today you said hello and you walked close to me
I was paralyzed with fear, you had never been so near
You smiled at me and started to speak
Then you turned and walked on down the street

There is a chance that I might get to know you
A chance that I might get to know you
But at the rate we’re moving
Our chance of happiness is just a chance

HOW ARE YA DOIN’ TODAY?
   Before we met, this traveling didn’t bother me
I looked forward to all the new things I’d see
But since I met you, it seems like an eternity
If I’m gone one day, and your shining face I can’t see

Tell me please - How are ya doin’ today?
I’ve been worried - It’s been so long I’ve been away
You’ve been alone -  at least that’s what I hope
I hope you missed me - I hope you sat around and moped
If this sounds strange - I guess I’m just insecure
The way I feel about you - I guess there’s not any cure
It’s all your fault - ‘cause of the way that you are
I just can’t function - I’m just not up to par
So tell me please - How are ya doin’ today?
How are ya doin’ - doin’ today?

I just found out we’re on the road one more week
I knew I had to call you, I hope you have time to speak
My hands are shaking, and I can hardly hold the phone
Cause all I can think of ... is one more week alone....

Tell me please - How are ya doin’ today?
I’ve been worried - It’s been so long I’ve been away
You’ve been alone -  at least that’s what I hope
I hope you missed me - I hope you sat around and moped
If this sounds strange - I guess I’m just insecure
The way I feel about you - I guess there’s not any cure
It’s all your fault - ‘cause of the way that you are
I just can’t function - I’m just not up to par
So tell me please - How are ya doin’ today?
How are ya doin’....doin’ today
How are ya doin’ today?

AIN’T IT AMAZING
Ain’t it Amazing
What a Little Love Can Do
Ain’t it Amazing
That Somehow I Found You
Ain’t it Amazing
What a Little Love Can Do

When I Feel Sad
You Hold Me Close to You
Wipe My Tears
And Say I Love You

Ain’t it Amazing
What a Little Love Can Do
Ain’t it Amazing
That Somehow I Found You
Ain’t it Amazing
What a Little Love Can Do

When I’m Happy
You Feel My Joy
Feel like a Kid
With a Brand New Toy

Ain’t it Amazing
What a Little Love Can Do
Ain’t it Amazing
That Somehow I Found You
Ain’t it Amazing
What a Little Love Can Do

Can’t Explain it
Don’t Understand it
But Lord it Just
Feels So Good

Ain’t it Amazing
What a Little Love Can Do
Ain’t it Amazing
That Somehow I Found You
Ain’t it Amazing
What a Little Love Can Do

BREAKING FREE FROM THE PAST
I’ve broken free from alcohol,
I’ve broken free from drugs.
I’ve broken free from terrorist fear,
‘Cause life’s not made to last.
I’ve broken free from sexual addiction
I’ve broken free from all these
But the hardest thing that I’ve ever tried
Is breaking free from the past.

I live my life in turmoil,
Or at least that’s how it seems
Sometimes the only escape I get
Is in the land of my dreams
The past is like too much baggage
It just seems to weigh me down
Just when I feel I can truly break free
The past sneaks back around.                

I’ve broken free from alcohol,
I’ve broken free from drugs.
I’ve broken free from terrorist fear,
‘Cause life’s not made to last.
I’ve broken free from sexual addiction
I’ve broken free from all these
But the hardest thing that I’ve ever tried
Is breaking free from the past.

My present is a precious gem
If I can only stay there
But all these thoughts just barge on in
About who and when and where
My life could be a wonderful thing
If my mind could only get free
But shutting out my yesterdays
Is like climbing Everest to me

I’ve broken free from alcohol,
I’ve broken free from drugs.
I’ve broken free from terrorist fear,
‘Cause life’s not made to last.
I’ve broken free from sexual addiction
I’ve broken free from all these
But the hardest thing that I’ve ever tried
Is breaking free from the past.
Breaking free from the past.                

HEAVEN ABOVE US
Lying here with you
So close in my arms
Looking at the sky above
And knowing we’re in love
We’re in a place
Where there’s no time and space
Now that we’ve heaven above us
Now that we’ve heaven above us
We’ve everything
We’ve everything

We share one heart
An eternal love
We promised to stay to the end
And always be each other’s friend
We stayed through the hopes and the fears
Through laughter and tears
Now that we’ve heaven above us
Now that we’ve heaven above us
We’ve everything
We’ve everything

Time passed too fast
Seems like yesterday
I held you for the first time
And told you - you were mine
Kids are grown and gone
And now we’re all alone
Now that we’ve heaven above us
Now that we’ve heaven above us
Now that we’ve heaven above us
We've everything.

BRING ME HOME FROM THE MOON
When we said goodbye this time,
Did we really believe it was true?
Are we throwing in the towel on ten years?
Who’s leaving, me or you?

I remember the changes we’ve gone through
Just like it was yesterday
Did the good times outweigh the bad times?
Can we try it for one more day?

How did it happen?
What did we do?
How did we get to this?
Is it all just a dream?
Will I wake up soon?
Somebody bring me home from the Moon

Somewhere along the way
We just drifted apart.
We were strangers in the same house
Hanging on to pieces of a heart

Somewhere along the way
We just drifted apart
We  were strangers in the same house
Hanging on to pieces of a heart

How did it happen?
What did we do?
How did we get to this?
Is it all just a dream?
Will I wake up soon?
Somebody bring me
Somebody bring me
Somebody bring me
Bring me home from the Moon - Bring me home from the Moon
Bring me home from the Moon - Bring me home from the Moon.

SHE DOESN’T KNOW ME ANYMORE
She’s so fragile and she needs so much
She doesn’t know me anymore....
I hold her when she cries - I need her touch
She doesn’t know me anymore....

I wash her feet and brush her hair
She doesn’t know me anymore...
I hurt inside because I care
She doesn’t know me anymore....

There’s a master plan I don’t understand
I guess life just goes on
I’ve done my best and God will do the rest
When she reaches the promised land.

She gave me life and all her love
She doesn’t know me anymore...
I know she’s a gift from God above
She doesn’t know me anymore....

I thank God for everyday she’s with me
She doesn’t know me anymore...
I remember all the good things she did for me
She doesn’t know me anymore....

There’s a master plan I don’t understand
I guess life just goes on
I’ve done my best and God will do the rest
When she reaches the promised land.

She doesn’t know me anymore...
She doesn’t know me anymore....
She doesn’t know me anymore......

BRIDGE TO MY HEART
The path has washed out long ago
To the center of my heart and soul.
It’s been so long that I don’t know
If anyone can take control.

Don’t let the river stop you.
Build a bridge to my heart.
Don’t drown in the deluge.
Build a bridge to my heart.
If the mud pulls you in,
Push a little harder.
Baby, build a bridge to my heart.

You were like the brightest light
in the darkness of a primal night.
You forced me to care again
Since I don’t know where or when.

Don’t let the river stop you.
Build a bridge to my heart.
Don’t drown in the deluge.
Build a bridge to my heart.
If the mud pulls you in,
Push a little harder.
Baby, build a bridge to my heart.

Build a bridge
Before it’s too late.
Build a bridge
I know I can’t wait any longer, any longer.

Don’t let the river stop you.
Build a bridge to my heart.
Don’t drown in the deluge.
Build a bridge to my heart.
If the mud pulls you in,
Push a little harder.
Baby, build a bridge to my heart.
If the mud pulls you in,
Push a little harder.
Baby, build a bridge to my heart.


"WE DONE PAID OUR DUES" LYRICS

WE DONE PAID OUR DUES
Been Breaking Our Backs Now All Day Long
Ain’t Makin’ Much Money and it Seems So Wrong
The Rich Man Lives in His Air Cooled Place
And the Sweat Just Keep Drippin’ down My Face

Rock with the Music, Roll out the Blues
Jump Back Baby, We Done Paid Our Dues

But Now the Day Is over and I’m Feelin’ Fine
I’m Gonna Go Wash the Dirt off These Hands of Mine
I’m Gonna Go Get My Woman Now You Understand
And Go Listen and Dance to a Mellow Band

Rock with the Music, Roll out the Blues
Jump Back Baby, We Done Paid Our Dues

We’ll Dance and Boogie the Whole Night Through
We’ll Get So Happy We Won’t Know What to Do
When I’m with My Baby, I Feel So Fine
When I Hear Good Music, Chills Run up and
Down My Spine

Rock with the Music, Roll out the Blues
Jump Back Baby, We Done Paid Our Dues

SAD AND BLUE
When I Had Your Love
I Didn’t Treat You Right
I Ran Around with Men
And Stayed out All Night
You Believed All My Lies
‘Cause You Loved Me So
But You Woke Me up this Morning
And Said You Had to Go

They Say....You Never Miss Your Water till Your Well Runs Dry
I Can Tell You People That’s Not a Lie
Don’t Cheat on a Love That’s Really True
‘Cause You’ll Be Left Alone Sad and Blue

It Took Me by Surprise
As I Watched You Pack
You Threw Your Ring on the Bed
And Said I Won’t Be Back
I Said I’ll Change, I’ll Be Good You’ll See
He Never Looked Back or Even Noticed Me

They Say....You Never Miss Your Water till Your Well Runs Dry
I Can Tell You People That’s Not a Lie
Don’t Cheat on a Love That’s Really True
‘Cause You’ll Be Left Alone Sad and Blue

THAT MAGIC MOMENT
When Our Eyes Met, We Didn’t Have to Speak
Our Hearts Knew from a Glance That We Had to Meet
We Were Meant for Each Other, this We Knew
Love Let’s You Know - When It’s Right for You

That Magic Moment
When We Know It’s for Real
That Magic Moment
Only We Know How it Feels
And When We Touch
Two Hearts Beat as One
That Magic Moment
True Love Has Just Begun

You Were with Someone Holding on to You
I Had Someone with Me for the Evening Too
Each Time Our Eyes Met from Across the Room
We Knew We’d Be with Each Other Soon

That Magic Moment
When We Know It’s for Real
That Magic Moment
Only We Know How it Feels
And When We Touch
Two Hearts Beat as One
That Magic Moment
True Love Has Just Begun

The Evening Wore on and So Did Our Hearts
You Asked Me for a Dance and We Didn’t Part
We Held on to Each Other and Tried to Understand
We Had No Control - Love Was in Command

That Magic Moment
When We Know It’s for Real
That Magic Moment
Only We Know How it Feels
And When We Touch
Two Hearts Beat as One
That Magic Moment
True Love Has Just Begun

JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS
If you think I don’t love you,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
If you think I don’t want to make you happy,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
If you think I don’t want to feel you near,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
Jumping up, falling down,
Jumping to conclusions.

You let someone tell you that I don’t care anymore,
So you assumed that what she said was true.
You let your mind run wild and thought you knew the score,
But you should have checked it out before the rumor grew.

If you think I don’t love you,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
If you think I don’t want to make you happy,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
If you think I don’t want to feel you near,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
Jumping up, falling down,
Jumping to conclusions.

You thought you saw me talking too long to your girlfriend,
and you thought you saw her trying to steal my heart.
But you are seeing things in your mind that just aren’t there,
My heart is yours and I won’t let us be driven apart.

If you think I don’t love you,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
If you think I don’t want to make you happy,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
If you think I don’t want to feel you near,
You’re jumping to conclusions.
Jumping up, falling down,
Jumping to conclusions.

WORSHIP THE GOLDEN SUN
In California, down on the Coast
There’s One Source of Energy They Love the Most
They Bathe in it Constantly, but Can’t Use it up
There’s Still Plenty Left to Fill Everyone’s Cup

‘Cause They, Worship the Golden Sun
They Say, Sweet Sun Thy Will Be Done
Yes They, Play in It, Having Fun
Hey, Worship the Golden Sun

In Hawaii, It’s All They Know
All Year ‘Round, it Puts on a Brilliant Show
But There’s No Charge for this Event
Everyone Loves That Red Hot Gent

‘Cause They, Worship the Golden Sun
They Say, Sweet Sun Thy Will Be Done
Yes They, Play in It, Having Fun
Hey, Worship the Golden Sun

It’s Always Popular in Mexico
The Women Love it in Acapulco
They Get Quite Naked to Get a Tan
Say “Thank You” to the Sun If You’re a Man

‘Cause They, Worship the Golden Sun
They Say, Sweet Sun Thy Will Be Done
Yes They, Play in It, Having Fun
Hey, Worship the Golden Sun

YOU FINALLY GOT JUST WHAT WAS COMING TO YOU
Love Was Just a Game That You Played for Fun
Breaking Girls’ Hearts and You’d Be on the Run
You’d Leave Them When They Needed You Most of All
You’d Lead Them down the Path and You’d Let Them Fall
You Finally Go Just What Was Coming to You

In Walked the Diva and Put a Hook in Your Nose
Wide Enough to Pull a 10 Foot Garden Hose
And Made You Love and You Gave it Your All
She Took You Money and Let You Fall
You Finally Got Just What Was Coming to You

Don’t it Hurt Real Bad
Don’t it Make You Real Sad
Don’t it Hurt Read Bad
Don’t it Make You Real Sad
You Finally Got Just What Was Coming to You

In Walked the Diva and Put a Hook in Your Nose
Wide Enough to Pull a 10 Foot Garden Hose
And Made You Love and You Gave it Your All
She Took You Money and Let You Fall
You Finally Got Just What Was Coming to You

Don’t it Hurt Real Bad
Don’t it Make You Real Sad
Don’t it Hurt Read Bad
Don’t it Make You Real Sad
You Finally Got Just What Was Coming to You

MAKE ME WHOLE
I’m Daydreaming Through this Life
A Patchwork Quilt of Joy and Strife
Sunny Skies and Stomach Pains
Happy Tunes and Sad Refrains

Where Am I on this Vast Scale
A Chosen One or Am I Born to Fail
Should I Fight or Hold on Fast
Or Sit in Back and Let it Pass

Make Me Whole Lord, Make Me Whole
One Part’s Missing, I’m out of Control
Take Me Now, Grab Hold of Me
Make Me Whole, My Lord, Set Me Free

Take Me to That Place I’ve Seen
In Finer Moods and in a Dream
Where All My Pieces Fall in Place
And I Know My Name in Time and Space

Small Frustrations in My Way
Make Me Lose My Happy Day
I Need More Strength to Carry on
Hear Me Calling Lord with this Song

Make Me Whole Lord, Make Me Whole
One Part’s Missing, I’m out of Control
Take Me Now, Grab Hold of Me
Make Me Whole, My Lord, Set Me Free

SOMEBODY ELSE’S BLUES
I Feel So Outside
So on the Edge
Just like I’m Living
Someone Else’s Life
Seems like I’m Always
Paying My Dues
Feels like I’m in
Somebody’s Else’s Blues

I Look in a Mirror
Don’t Recognize the Face
A Stranger Looks Back
And I’m in Some Other Place
I’m on the Outside
So Far Removed
Don’t Feel Anything
I Got Somebody Else’s Blues

You Hurt Me So Bad
I Moved to Another Plane
Where Nothing Could
Ever Hurt Me Again
It’s Not My Blues
It Just Couldn’t Be
I Couldn’t Be Feeling this Misery

I Feel So Outside
So on the Edge
Just like I’m Living
Someone Else’s Life
Seems like I’m Always
Paying My Dues
Feels like I’m in
Somebody’s Else’s Blues

I Don’t Cry Anymore
I Don’t Feel Anymore
I Don’t Care Anymore
I Don’t Know Why Anymore
Don’t Feel Anything
I Got Somebody Else’s Blues

I AM YOUR WORLD
The World Is like a Tiny Flower,
Unfolding its Potential When its Time Has Come.
Taking Time for Roots to Grow and Thrive,
It Knows its Way Is the Only One

I Am Your World;
Please Love Me for What I Am.
Don’t Try to Change Me,
Until You Understand.

Games Are Played upon its Surface,
Their Patterns Are a Pleasure to Behold;
And from an Earnestness in Watching,
The Knowledge Gained Is Manifold.

I Am Your World;
Please Love Me for What I Am.
Don’t Try to Change Me,
Until You Understand.

In the Silent Watching Darkness,
A Thousand Years or More Is Just a Sigh.
But in the Joy of One Encounter,
The World Is Poised as If to Die.

I Am Your World;
Please Love Me for What I Am.
Don’t Try to Change Me,
Until You Understand.


"DOWN BY THE RIVER" LYRICS

DOWN BY THE RIVER
I’m Going down by the River
To Ease My Mind
I’m Going down by the River
To Forget My Troubled Times
I’m Going down by the River
And Watch All My Troubles Flow Away

Sometimes Life
Can Be a Little Hard
Things Start to Happen
To Tear Your Life Apart
I’m Going down by the River
To Ease My Mind
I’m Going down by the River
To Forget My Troubled Times
I’m Going down by the River
And Watch All My Troubles Flow Away

Watching the River Flow
Feeling My Troubles Go
Out of My Mind
To Somewhere in Time.....

I’m Going down by the River
To Ease My Mind
I’m Going down by the River
To Forget My Troubled Times
I’m Going down by the River
And Watch All My Troubles Flow Away

When Life Strikes you a Blow
And You Feel You Have Nowhere to Go

I’m Going down by the River
To Ease My Mind
I’m Going down by the River
To Forget My Troubled Times
I’m Going down by the River
And Watch All My Troubles Flow Away

PRIMAL
Hey you over there,
Move on over and gimme some air.
My body’s loose, I’m losing control,
There’s a fire started that’s burning my soul.

Hey there, pretty face,
Spread on out now and gimme some space.
Set me free, ‘cause it’s a fact,
I want to bend my body ‘til I break my back.

I Wanna Get on down to this Funky Beat,
Shake My Body and Move My Feet,
Lose Myself in a Primal Scream,
Find Myself in a Funky Dream.

My Body’s Loose,
I’m Losing Control,
There’s a Fire Started,
That’s Burning My Soul.

COMMAND PERFORMANCE
If I Had My Life
To Live over Again
What Would I Do?
What Would I Do?
I Would Go Back Through My Life
And Give a Command Performance
Of the Life I’ve Lived Before

I Have So Few Regrets
I Learned from My Mistakes
I Lived Each Day as it Came
And I Learned to Love Myself

If I Had My Life
To Live over Again
What Would I Do?
What Would I Do?
I Would Go Back Through My Life
And Give a Command Performance
Of the Life I’ve Lived Before
I Would Go Back Through My Life
And Give a Command Performance
Of the Life I’ve Lived Before.

CROSSROADS
Never have I felt so empty,
Searching inside for the best of me
Instead I find heartache and strife
I’m at the crossroads of my life

I want my feet planted firmly on this earth
I want my own reasons for my birth
I want to leave a legacy to my child
I won’t be around after a while.

Existing Without Living Is Just a Joy Ride
When the Fun Is Over, There’s No Where to Hide
I Want to Chose the Right Path to Ease My Load
I Want to Be at the End of My Crossroads

There’s been too many forks in my road
The burden of choosing one is a heavy load
I’ve tried all paths I felt were right
My life reflects a different plight

How do I make my dreams come true?
Where does one begin to start anew
When you’ve given all that you can give
I want more from life than just to live

Existing Without Living Is Just a Joy Ride
When the Fun Is Over, There’s No Where to Hide
I Want to Choose the Right Path to Ease My Love
I Want to Be at the End of My Crossroad

Never have I felt so empty
Searching inside for the best of me
Instead I find heartache and strife
I’m at the crossroads
I’m at the crossroads
I’m at the crossroads....... of my life

THANKS
Should I say thanks to the love you never gave
Should I say thanks to the money you never saved
You’ve always done me wrong....but I just can’t leave you alone

Should I say thanks
For the times you stayed out late
Should I say thanks
When you lied about a date
You’ve always done me wrong...but
I just can’t leave you alone

They Say Love Is Blind, That Much Is True
I’m Blinded by Your Love
And You’re No Good Through and Through

Should I say thanks
When I cried all night long
Should I say thanks
When you didn’t come home
You’ve always done me wrong...but
I just can’t leave you alone.
I just can’t leave you, I just can’t leave you, I just can’t leave you alone.

MOVIN’ EASY
I'm so close to the edge, baby
If the wind shifted I'd be gone
Then you'd have to find somebody else
To help you get along
It's not that I'm so down
Just that I can't see no up.
Like if somebody willed me diamonds
They'd be in an old and rusty cup

I'm Movin’ Easy,
Taking it All Real Slow
Crawling Across the Carpet
Is the Only Way to Go.
Trying to Get High
But Feeling Mighty Low.

Brunch, and I'm sitting here
Eating yogurt, drinking beer.
Thinkin' 'bout you
But I can't even raise a tear.
The rent's two months overdue
And ain't nothing in the mail but bills.
Gotta start looking for a job come Monday
Something to fit my peculiar skills.

Not that I'm in a panic
I've still got a few hours yet.
Maybe something good'll happen
But I ain't gonna be placing no big bet.

I'm Movin’ Easy,
Taking it All Real Slow
Crawling Across the Carpet
Is the Only Way to Go.
Trying to Get High
But Feeling Mighty Low.
Feeling Mighty Low.

LOVE AIN’T WORTH A NICKEL

When You Treat Me like You Do.

Just like a Worn out Tool.

‘Cause I Drove a Fancy Car.
Yes You Thought I Had a Million
‘Cause I Drove a Fancy Car.
Now You’ve Used up All My Money
And I’m down Here Drinking in this Bar.

Love Ain’t Worth a Nickel
When You Treat Me like You Do.
You Know Love Ain’t Worth a Nickel
When You Treat Me like You Do.

But You Gave Me Nothing in Return.

But There’s One Lesson I’ve Learned...

Said You’d Stay ‘Till You Die.
You Said You Really Loved Me,
Said You’d Stay ‘Till You Die.
Well the Cemetery’s Full of All the Girls Who’ve Heard That Lie.

Love Ain’t Worth a Nickel
When You Treat Me like You Do.
You Know Love Ain’t Worth a Nickel
When You Treat Me like You Do.
I Ain’t Never Got a Penny’s Worth of
True Love out of You.

SHAMBACK BLUES
I wonder what it is inside me
That makes me feel this way
I wonder what it is inside me
That makes me feel this way
If I could just follow my mind
I’d pack my bags and leave today

When I woke up this morning
Strange things were on my mind
When I woke up this morning
Strange things were on my mind
If I could just find out what they are
You’d know I’d be feeling fine

I’d Love to See Some Sunlight
Shining down on Me
I’d Love to Breathe Some Fresh Air
And Sit down under a Tree
But this City Blues Has Got Me
It’s Trying to Get My Soul
If I Don’t Get Away Soon
I’m about to Lose Control

I need some Doctor Feelgood
But I know that it just ain’t right
I need some Doctor Feelgood
But I know that it just ain’t right
Cause that Doctor pulled my daddy down
though he fought it with all his might

I wonder what it is inside me
That makes me feel this way
I wonder what it is inside me
That makes me feel this way
If I could just follow my mind
I’d pack my bags and leave today

SANTA NEEDS A PROZAC
Got kids writing letters from all over the place.
Can’t get away - He really needs his space.
But here’s one real true fact -
Santa needs a Prozac.

Got elves with attitudes working too much overtime
Got reindeer pissed ‘cause Rudolf’s first in line.
But here’s one real true fact -
Santa needs a Prozac.

Santa’s gonna let down his guard
He’s gonna get real tonight..
He really needs to relax
Santa wants to take a Prozac.

When he gets back from his Christmas run,
and that crazy night is all said and done,
Here’s one real true fact -
Santa’s needs a Prozac.

Santa’s gonna let down his guard
He’s gonna get real tonight
He really needs to relax
Santa wants to take a Prozac

When he gets back from his Christmas run,
and that crazy night is all said and done,
Here’s one real true fact -
Santa’s gonna take that Prozac.

I LOVE CHRISTMAS
I love Christmas;
It’s my favorite holiday.
With kids all dreaming of Santa Claus,
and candy, toys and play.
I love Christmas;
and I think that I know why.
It reminds me of times when my imagination
soared into the sky.

My earliest Christmas memories
are from when I was 3 or 4.
When Christmas was filled with joy and wonder,
looking at toys in a downtown store.
Almost everything I saw there, I wanted
Santa to bring to me.
I wished that I could see them
under our Christmas tree.

I love Christmas;
It’s my favorite holiday.
With kids all dreaming of Santa Claus,
and candy, toys and play.
I love Christmas;
and I think that I know why.
It reminds me of times when my imagination
soared into the sky.

My best Christmas memories
are from when I first met you.
You brought me back those feelings
of when Christmas meant joy, not the blues.
When you moved in with me,
my heart felt Christmas again.
Now I’m looking forward to seeing Santa
for the first time since I don’t know when.

I love Christmas;
It’s my favorite holiday.
With kids all dreaming of Santa Claus,
and candy, toys and play.
I love Christmas;
and I think that I know why.
It reminds me of times when my imagination
soared into the sky.

CHRISTMAS TIME COMES ONCE A YEAR
Christmas Time comes once a year;
It’s the time for Christmas cheer.
Christmas Time comes once a year;
It’s the time for Christmas cheer.

Try to be good all year long,
And then you’ll see;
A mighty big surprise
Might end up under your tree.

Christmas Time comes once a year;
It’s the time for Christmas cheer.
Christmas Time comes once a year;
It’s the time for Christmas cheer.

Put up the tree and say your prayers,
And then you might,
See dear old Santa Claus,
Coming in the night.

Christmas Time comes once a year;
It’s the time for Christmas cheer.
Christmas Time comes once a year;
It’s the time for Christmas cheer.        

LIGHT UP OUR CHRISTMAS TREE
This Time of the Year
And I’m Thinkin’ Bout You Baby
Can’t Feel No Christmas Cheer
Cause I’m Here Without You Baby
Please Come Home to Me
And Light up Our Christmas Tree

I See the Pretty Lights
Making Other Spirits Bright
Can’t Feel the Christmas Spirit
Cause What I Did to You Wasn’t Right
Please Come Home to Me
And Light up Our Christmas Tree

Don’t Feel like Seein’ Old Friends
They Remind Me of You
Can’t Decorate the House
Cause It’s Empty Without You
Please Come Home to Me
And Light up Our Christmas Tree

If You Come Home to Me
Then Baby You’ll See
The Kind of Lovin’ I’ll Give You
Santa Claus Has Nothin’ on Me

Please Come on Home to Me
And Light up Me and Our Christmas Tree

CARIBBEAN CHRISTMAS
It doesn’t feel right ‘cause it’s not cold.
In fact, it’s hot and that’s getting old.
But what the heck,
It’s a Caribbean Christmas.                

Palm trees and cacti everywhere;
Gulls and goats and lizards and tourists without a care.
But Santa and Rudolph seem out of place.
Blitzen says, “Let’s head North,” just to save face.

It doesn’t feel right ‘cause it’s not cold.
In fact, it’s hot and that’s getting old.
But what the heck,
It’s a Caribbean Christmas.                

Sailboats rarely come in red and green,
And drifts of snow are never seen.
A white sand Christmas just doesn’t fly,
With bar yachties shouting, “Here’s mud in your eye!”

It doesn’t feel right ‘cause it’s not cold.
In fact, it’s hot and that’s getting old.
But what the heck,
It’s a Caribbean Christmas.                

This seemed like a good idea before we came down,
To spend a Christmas in the sun.
But next time we’ll stay in colder climates,
Where Christmas just seems to be much more fun.

It doesn’t feel right ‘cause it’s not cold.
In fact, it’s hot and that’s getting old.
But what the heck,
It’s a Caribbean Christmas.                

SING A SONG FOR OLD SAINT NICK
Let’s sing a song for old Saint Nick;
Some call him Santa Claus.
But the real story of this holy man,
Well, I’ll tell it, just because.

He saved three young girls from a life of sin
By giving them a gift of gold.
He threw it through their open window
- at least that’s how it’s told.

Let’s sing a song for old Saint Nick;
Some call him Santa Claus.
But the real story of this holy man,
Well, I’ll tell it, just because.

St. Nicholas came upon three boys
Cruelly murdered in their bed.
He placed his hands upon them
and raised them from the dead.

Let’s sing a song for old Saint Nick;
Some call him Santa Claus.
But the real story of this holy man,
Well, I’ll tell it, just because.

On a cold and dark and stormy night,
he sailed out on the sea;
and saved good sailors,
whose ship had capsized furiously.

Let’s sing a song for old Saint Nick;
Some call him Santa Claus.
But the real story of this holy man,
Well, I’ll tell it, just because.

St. Nick wore fur of red and white
To children he was always kind.
Call him Santa if you like.
I’m sure he wouldn’t mind.

WHEN I THINK OF CHRISTMAS
When I think of Christmas
I just think of you.
You’re the one who brought me Christmas joy.
When I think of Christmas,
you’re the only one who
made me feel just like a kid
With his favorite toy.
But you went away;
now it’s just another day.
I try to put a smile on my face.
But without you here,
there’s no Christmas cheer.
I’ve got to stop thinking about you,
but I can’t.

But you went away;
now it’s just another day.
I try to put a smile on my face.
But without you here,
there’s no Christmas cheer.
I’ve got to stop thinking about you,
but I can’t.Oo
