TRUE

Sweetly tell me that you love me more than any other girl

That you have ever loved before

And me, well I’ll wait patiently until you’re whispering to me

I’m who you’ve been waiting for

But only tell me if it’s true, true, true, I wanna hear it from you

But only tell me if it’s true, true, true, I wanna hear it from you

I don’t mind if you’re cliché, as long as you mean what you say

I don’t mind at all        

Sing me a pretty lullaby, saying I’m the love of your life

Now and forevermore

But only tell me if it’s true, true, true, I wanna hear it from you

Hey only tell me if it’s true, true, true, I wanna hear it from you

So read me that poetry, only if you wrote it for me

And watch my favorite chick flick and tell me that you liked it

And you love me, and you’re half way to one knee, oh

But only tell me if it’s true, true, true, I wanna hear it from you

Hey, only tell me if it’s true, true, true, I wanna hear it from you

I wanna hear it from you, I wanna hear it only if it’s true

 

I WANNA GO HOME

Independent for a second, just a synonym for being all alone

When I got it, I didn’t want it; had to tough it out on my own

It was easy, not a bill in mind; ‘til I let go, I was ridin’ just fine

I never knew what a rookie I was ‘til I got my first ticket to my very first bus

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh – Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

I wanna go home, I wanna go home, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, I’m feelin’ alone, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, I wanna go home, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, wanna be on my own but I wanna go home

Had to grow up in a minute, yeah breakin’ away is a bittersweet thing

Had to do it, I’m getting’ through it, ‘cause real life ain’t no Disney dream

I never knew what a rookie I was ‘til I got my cell phone and my lights turned off

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh – Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

I wanna go home, I wanna go home, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, I’m feelin’ alone, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, I wanna go home, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, wanna be on my own but I wanna go home

And I find I’m looking back to the good ol’ days when life was simple

I’m happy where I’m at; I’m just trying to find an independent way to say

I wanna go home, I wanna go home, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, I’m feelin’ alone, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, I wanna go home, I wanna go home

I wanna go home, wanna be on my own but I wanna go home

I wanna go home

 

WHERE'S MY CLASSIC?

Spending countless hours soakin’ in Anne of Green Gables

Lets a heart run wild like Black Beauty out of his stable

Where's my Romeo? What's the name of my fable?

I'm Gone With the Wind, I got Great Expectations

Somethin’ like Huckleberry Finn in his grand exploration

He'll be killin' off the villains while I lay sick,

Just to be awakened by True Love's Kiss

Something bold, something drastic

Where's my classic? Do do do, whoa

With him, I'll never be afraid of Wuthering Heights

Life will make perfect Sense & Sensibility with him by my side

There's lots of pretty Little Women, alright

But I'm the one'll be The Woman in White

Yes, I'm Gone With the Wind, I got Great Expectations

Something like Pride & Prejudice, the kind of deep in love sensation

He'll be killin' off the villains while I lay sick

Just to be awakened by True Love's Kiss

Something bold, something drastic

Where's my classic? Do do do, whoa

And he'll send love Letters written in Scarlet,

And I'll show them off to my dear friends, Wilbur & Charlotte

We'll get hitched & watch the sunset out near Where The Red Fern Grows

With our little Hansel & Gretel, but that's all way down the Yellow Brick Road

I'm Gone With the Wind, I got Great Expectations

Robin Hood & Maid Miriam, It'll be just like the animations

I'm so Gone With the Wind, I got Great Expectations

Just like Wendy & Peter Pan in a type of Neverland destination

He'll be killin' off the villains while I lay sick

Just to be awakened by True Love's Kiss

Something bold, somethin drastic

Where's my classic? Do do do

Where's my dream come true?

Where's my classic? Do do do, bibbidi-bobbidi-boo

Where's my classic?

 

RICH MAN'S WIFE

 

I just milked the cows today, fed all the chickens, gathered all their eggs

Another day’s work at the farm, sleepin’, eatin’, practically living in the barn

It’s a dandy life indeed, if you like that kind of thing

But I got a different dream, a far off fantasy

To be a rich man’s wife, I’d never have to work another day in my life

Never thinking twice, if I see it and I want it, then it’s mine, mine, mine

The limit is the sky, and Im’a ride them winds with style

Yeah, I would leave it all behind to be a rich man’s wife

Alarm, alarm. alright! I know, my life starts over with a rooster’s crow

Gotta plow a field, shuck the corn, got my overalls screaming, “I’m far past worn!”

Two dimes and a nickel ‘til three, and I still haven’t eaten anything

See, I could work my way out of poverty or simply take the pretty route of matrimony

Would it be worth it? Definitely!

To be a rich man’s wife, I’d never have to work another day in my life

Never thinking twice, no sir! If I see it and I want it, then it’s mine, mine, mine

The limit is the sky, and Im’a ride them winds with style

Yeah, I would leave it all behind to be a rich man’s wife

Oh sweet, sweet charity, I could donate half his money to thee

And I’d set all them farm girls free, all them poor old saps like me

I’ll make ‘em rich men’s wives, I’ll tell my hubby’s buddies that they’re all real nice

Girl, don’t think twice! If you see him and you want him, say, “He’s mine, mine, mine”

The limit is the sky, so go ride them winds with style; kiss the farm girl’s life goodbye

Go be a rich man’s wife!

I wanna be a rich man’s wife!

I’m gonna be a rich man’s wife!

Oh, to be a rich man’s wife!

Camille:   Are you sayin’ you wanna marry for love or money?

Haley:     Well, can’t I have both?

Camille:   I suppose so, if I can too!

 

WISH I DIDN'T LIKE YOU (WIDLY) 

 

I’ve never been so good at reading emotions

And you are my diary of questions

We’ve been friends for a while now, I’m scared to tell you

I don’t know if you feel the same way I do

I wish I didn’t like you so much; I wish that it could be just like it was

I wish that I could stare into your eyes and forget to blush

I wish I didn’t like you so much; I wish that I could take it back a notch

I wish that I could think about your smile without falling in love

I wish I didn’t like you  -  Oo oo oo, Oo oo oo, Oo oo oo

He’s thinking, girl, you’re beautiful

Wish I could tell you, don’t wanna lose you

I’ve liked the way things are, but things are changing

You’ve got me wishing for more

CHORUS

I think I know just what you feel

Please tell me my heart is pounding for something that’s real

I hope you’ll say you love me too

But until then, I’m gonna just pretend

That I wish I didn’t like you so much; I wish that we could be just like it was

I wish that I could stare into your eyes and forget to blush

I wish I didn’t like you so much; I wish that I could take it back a notch

I wish that I could think about your smile without falling in love

I wish I didn’t like you  -  Oo oo oo, Oo oo oo, Oo oo oo

I wish I didn’t like you 

 

UKULELE LOVER

Since I’ve been playing ukulele, have you noticed

The sun’s been shining brighter lately  

And the clouds lay low for me

And the flowers show for me

They like to hear my tunes

I like to watch them groove In harmony

And when I say hello They let their colors show Just for me

Since I’ve been playing ukulele

Since I’ve been playing ukulele, have you noticed    

The spring’s been coming rather early

And the birds, they sing for me (tweet, tweet)

And the trees, they sway for me

CHORUS

Rain, shine, sleet, hail

Day, night, however I feel

I’m a U-K-U-L-E-L-E   L-O-V-E-R

I play my U-K-U-L-E-L-E underneath the stars

Until the cows come home tonight

Until the moon is shining bright

CHORUS

Since I’ve been playing ukulele Yeah, Since I’ve been playing ukulele

 

BY THE RIVERSIDE (FEAT. PHIL KEAGGY)

Wait for me by the riverside

While you wait, sing a lullaby

And wait for me, try not to hide

Wait for me 'til the morning light

I love you & I don’t even know your name

But one thing I know for sure

Our hearts beat the same

Traveling mile by mile

But seeing you will the worth the while

Our favorite place to pass the time

Please wait for me by the riverside

CHORUS

I searched beyond the walls of solid stone

In search to find a love I call my own

But you were right there waiting where the water meets the sky

By the riverside 

(Wait for me)

 

IF YOU CAME BACK (FEAT. PHIL KEAGGY)

Haven’t worn perfume since the day you left

Haven’t heard that tune since I can’t remember when

Haven’t been so confused since we said goodbye

Now I’m just missing you every day and night

But if you came back, into my life

Never mind the past, You’d be my sunshine

Since you’ve been away I realize

I need/want you more than anything in the world

And oh how I miss you

Missing I love you’s and the way it felt

Being close to you and your hugs that make me melt

From across the room I could read your mind

Now miles away wishing you could read mine

CHORUS

As I’m thinking ‘bout the things I should have said

Going through the memories we both share

Wishing you were here so we could start again

But if you came back, into my life,  Never mind the past, You’d be my sunshine

Since you’ve been away, I realize - I need you more than anything,

I want you more than anything, I love you more than anything in the world

and I wouldn’t have to miss you

If you came back

 

WHEN YOU LOVE ME

 

Baby, my true lover, hold me in your arms

Maybe, when we’re older, we’ll still be falling in love

When you love me, it’s like a breath of fresh air

When we’re laughing, it’s like heaven is here

In your eyes, in you arms, your words are like charms

And my heart is beating for more

When you love me, it is for sure, sure

Lovely, friends forever, my eyes are only for you

Kiss me, gently whisper; time is standing still

CHORUS

Sweetly drawing closer, feeling our hearts vibe

Knowing this is forever makes my heart come alive

When you love me, it’s like a breath of fresh air

When we’re laughing, it’s like heaven is here

In your eyes, in you arms, your words are like charms

And my heart is beating for more

When you love me, it’s like a breath of fresh air

When we’re laughing, it’s like heaven is here

In your eyes, in you arms, your words are like charms

And my heart is beating for more

When you love me, it is for sure

When you love me, it is for sure

When you love me, I love you more, more

When you love me

 

MAKE YOUR MOVE

 

There’s a room of ball gowns and tuxed up men

It’s like a game of dress up, we both pretend

To be really into the ones we came with

You know I know you like me, it’s obvious. And I try so hard to act oblivious

Don’t make me be the first one to confess this

I don’t want to turn anybody else’s head but yours, So come on baby

I’m all dressed up and I’m ready to dance into your arms, yeah Honey it’s like

There’s nobody else in the room, but me    and    you - so make your move

Oh, there’s a line of bachelors I’m turning down

There’s a list of dashers forgotten now

No one else can suit me the way that you do

So, I’m gonna take my chances and stop the search

For me, there’s just no other, of you I’m sure

I’ve looked around but always come back to you

CHORUS

And since I’m in the mood of confessing, I’m speechless when you look my way

Sempiternally curious of what you think of me

Mama says we’re meant to be, match made in the heavenlies

And this time, I agree

CHORUS

I’ve already dropped my clues, now it’s time for you

To make your move

Make your move

 

THE LIFE FOR ME (FEAT. PHIL KEAGGY)

Can’t believe I’m late again

Got to school two minutes past the bell

Too much to think about

Ran out the door, forgot my books and cell

But the world seems right

Cause there’s a football game tonight

This is the life for me, No real responsibilities

Just clean my room and do my homework

Look cool for school and check my Facebook

This is the life for me

Ran out of energy

Got to class and fell asleep

Forgot my lunch at home

Can’t get my mama on the phone

But the world seems right

Cause there’s a football game tonight

CHORUS

There’s only twelve long years of this kind of life

Sometimes I never always like it, but it’s kind of nice

CHORUS

This is the life for me, oh

Ah, ah, ah

This is the life for me

 

LITTLE THINGS

Thank you for the letter melts my heart to say the least

Couldn’t ask for a better handsome bachelor loving me

And thank you for the dinner feeds my heart to say the least

Would’t ask for another handsome bachelor loving me

'Cause it’s the little things you do   That make me fall for you

It’s the little things you say   That drive me crazy

It’s your little thoughtful way that makes me fallen for you

I’m falling for you, you know I’m falling for you, you know, you know

And you know, I love you truly do

You’re no average Joe

You’re my Boaz and I’m your Ruth

CHORUS

Thank you for the dinner   Spontaneous and so unique

You make me a winner and make me feel so lovely

CHORUS

It’s the little things, it’s the little things, it’s the little things

It’s the little things, it’s the little things, it’s the little things you do        

That make me fall for you

 

MR. RIGHT NOW

He wouldn’t lie, no, not to me

I know him better than you, Daddy

We talked it out, no secrets now

When he’s around I feel so heavenly

So Daddy, what you think?

He said, Darling

If you wanna give your heart away

You could probly find a boy today

But when you see Mr. Right come around

You better not be with Mr. Right Now

When my pop was young, about my age

His momma said, boy, you’ll be happy if you wait

He dated 'round, almost lost out

He said I probly wouldn't be here right now

If she hadn’t set him down and said

If you wanna give your heart away

You could probly find a girl today

But when you see Mrs. Right come around

You better not bee with Mrs. Right Now

And I’m not saying he’s not the one for you

No, I’m just trying to protect the heart of my jewel

And you will find him probably when you’re not looking

Cause he’ll be lookin’, lookin' for you, yeah

But trust me

If you wanna give your heart away

You could probly find a boy today

But when you see Mr. Right come around

You better not be with Mr. Right Now

(2x)

You wouldn’t lie no, not to me

You’ve been around so I’m trusting you, Daddy

 

MAYBE

Maybe it’s the hair, maybe it’s the eyes

Maybe it’s your smile that takes me by surprise

Maybe it’s just you, And everything you do

I don’t really know why I’m so in love with you

But I want you to know

I want you to know

That I’ll always love you so

That I’ll always love you so 

Maybe it’s your voice, maybe it’s your laugh

Maybe it’s your heart that makes me your other half

It’s obvious to me, that we were meant to be

And if this love is true then it won’t take long to see

CHORUS

And I want to spend my life holding your hand

Woah, I wanna spend my life by your side, and that’s where I’ll stand forever

Oh forever, forever with you

Forever, forever, forever with you

 

Maybe it’s the hair, maybe it’s your eyes   

Maybe it’s your smile that takes me by surprise

Maybe it’s just you, And everything you do

But what I know for sure is that I’m so in love with you

 

AIN'T YOUR FOOL

I ain’t your fool

It’s not like this is my first rodeo, I’ve seen the likes of you before

And I know better than to fall for you, to even let you open up that door

‘Cause I can see through you and I ain’t your fool

You say you wanna good girl like me

You gotta be a good boy, darling

If you wanna do some changing, we’ll see

About you and me, but one thing’s for sure

I ain’t your fool

Nothin’ new under this big bright sun

And bluffin’ ain’t getting’ ya through to my heart

Ooh, ooh, somethin’ ‘bout you that really gets to me

But I don’t get hung up on good looks and cowboy charm

‘Cause I can see through you and I ain’t your fool

CHORUS

And I’m not one to fall for bad boys, ain’t like me to lead ‘em on

‘Cause I can see beyond the now, boy, you want what you want

Then you’re gone, long gone

And you say you wanna good girl like me

You gotta be a good boy, darling

If you wanna do some changing, we’ll see

About you and me, but one thing’s for sure

If you wanna good girl like me

You gotta be a good boy, darling

If you wanna do some changing, we’ll see

About you and me, but one thing’s for sure, I ain’t your fool

One thing’s for sure, I ain’t your fool

One thing’s for sure, I ain’t your fool

 

SINGLE ONCE AGAIN

I had a boyfriend one time, and he was perfectly sublime

And he was charming, 6’3, but he was not the one for me

There was a lad in my pre-teens, and he would call and sing to me

He even promised me a ring, but I just wanted to be free

I heard the boys said “amen” ‘cause I was single once again

And I don’t mind the attention of being single once again

I met a chico overseas, and he would Skype and send me things

He bought me my first ukulele, so glad it didn’t come with strings! (hasta luega)

There was a chap that captured me, I took it just a bit too deep

Alright, I kissed him on the cheek, but he is sooo not for me

CHORUS

There’s so much more that you can do when you’ve got nobody holdin’ you

It’s time for freedom and for fun, so come on, girlfriends, gather up

I’m not afraid to fall in love, but I can never get enough of

When the boys say “amen” ‘cause I am single once again

No, I don’t mind the attention of being single once again

I hear the boys sing “amen” ‘cause I am single once again

I kinda like the attention of being single once again

Oh, I am single once again,

Completely single once again

 

CAN'T SLEEP TONIGHT

 

Wide-eyed as the clock turned midnight

It’s been a long time since this happened to me

Rewind, think of all the sweet times

Smiling the whole while, as the clock turned 1, 2, 3, 4

I can’t sleep tonight, Oh I can’t sleep tonight

You were on my mind again, happens all the time

You were on my mind again, something I can’t fight

Daylight wasn’t far off when I realized that my life wasn’t mine anymore

Now I think I understand why people say it’s so right

And can’t go back to life before love

CHORUS

I miss you even when you’re with me

Can’t breath, can’t think about any other thing

Tomorrow might be sleepy ‘cause

I can’t sleep tonight, No I can’t sleep tonight

You’re on my mind again, happens all the time

You’re on my mind again, something I can’t fight

You’re on my mind again, happens all the time

You’re on my mind again, something I can’t fight

I can’t sleep tonight

THE LAST GOODBYE

Not every story will end with happily ever after

When you let go of what you’ve been holding

You will not know when it will stop hurting

The last goodbye will always be remembered

When we both cried and how we held each other

Knowing we were parting for the better didn’t make it any easier

And you know I still love you

Though I cannot be with you now

Love is a journey, it’s filled with joys and pains as we’re learning

When you let go of what you’ve been holding

In the shadows your heart is still hurting

CHORUS

Not every story will end with happily ever after

 

TO THE MOVIES

I think I saw him wink at me

I guess we’ll see

He seems nice and good enough for me

I guess we’ll see

Maybe he’ll ask me, ah

You wanna go to the movies?

Maybe take a walk under the moonbeams?

Anything to be together baby, baby, ah-ah

Cause every time I think aboutcha

No, I can’t imagine life withoutcha

I’ll do anything to be together baby, baby, ah-ah

He finally got to asking me

And he’s so sweet

Oh, and he thinks of everything

Sings me to sleep over the phone

And then he texts me, ah

CHORUS

I love our sweet dates, our cheap taste, where anything will do

No, don’t say sorry, I’m happy as long as I’m with you

So, you wanna go to the movies?

Maybe take a walk under the moonbeams?

Anything to be together baby, baby, ah-ah

Cause every time I think aboutcha

No, I can’t imagine life withoutcha

I’ll do anything to be together baby, baby, ah-ah

You wanna go to the movies?

Maybe take a walk under the moonbeams?

You wanna go to the movies?

HOMETOWN GIRLS

 

We’ve never been this far from home

It’s like nothing we’ve ever known

Flying here and there, singing everywhere

Oh, photos and shows

We were dreamin’ that this day might come

Sitting ‘round writing songs (la la)

Breakin’ your back on a life long track just, tryin’ to survive

Now I’m believing anything is possible worth dreaming

It’s why I’m alive

You gotta do what you love, you’ll never work again

I said do what you love, there’s no better way to spend your life

Do what you love, you’ll never work again

Mundane will never be enough, do what you love

Dreams and time swallowed by the dime

Now it’s do or die, gonna sink or fly, baby, I gotta try

‘Cause I’m believing anything is possible worth dreaming

It’s why I’m alive

CHORUS

How can I watch my life pass me by,

For that matter, let down mankind?

Mundane will never be enough,

Do what you love

 

LITTLE GIRLS

 

Little girls with their little curls In their little world

Will she be laughing or crying today?

Preteen with all their thinking, She knows everything

Will she complain or be thankful today?

In all the years you’ve had with me,

I hope you learned that faith is the key to everything

And with your little ones someday

Train their heart to know the way, name them after me

Eighteen and still maturing, will soon be leaving

Oh, how we wish she could stay, but college is not far away

When you’re out there on your own, won’t you call us on the phone?

I’m sure we’ll have a lot to talk about, When you’re choosing Mr. Right

Don’t you take that decision lightly, It’s for the rest of your life

Welcome to mine, you’re gonna do just fine

My little girl. mmm, not so little girl, mmm

 

ROCKY ROAD

 

Hey dad, remember when I was just about ten

Postcard from camping and a little note that said

I coming home, let’s share a rocky road

In our boat, just you and me alone

In my time away I’ve found that there’s no place I’ve known

No, there’s no place like home”

Dear dad, I didn’t know what I had      

No boy is ever worth making you sad

Thanks for having me back

I coming home, it’s been a rocky road

I should have known you were right all along

In my time away I’ve found that there’s no place I’ve known

No, there’s no place like home

Oh dad, tell me how time flies so fast

I think I found a college guy that you’ll like

I coming home, driving down our rocky road

And though I’m grown, I’m still daddy’s little girl

In my time away I’ve found that there’s no place I’ve known

No, there’s no place like…

Home has been my safe haven

And you have shown me how to pick the right man

From your hand to his, I’m sure glad you did

I’m coming home, can hardly wait to see your smile

Get ready to hold your first grandchild

And the memory I love the most

Is our time alone, in our little boat

And our rocky road

 

SOMETHING ABOUT THE FAMILY

Who do we call when life gets out of hand?

The ones who love us and will listen and will try to understand

Who do we know who knows us best?

Can make us laugh and relax and never needs to be impressed

It's an unexplainable bond, oh

There's something about family that brings us home

Oh, there's something about family, helps us forgive the harshest wrongs

And I don't know what it is that keeps us strong through all life's storms

But there's something about the family that brings us home

Where do we go when we're misunderstood,

or when nothing seems to turn out in the way that we thought it would?

What do we know that brings more delight

than when the family's altogether loving each other? It's just right

It's an unexplainable bond, oh

CHORUS

Easter, Thanksgiving & Christmas, growing up

Mom and dad said we would always miss this

No matter where life takes us, in our hearts we'll always know, that...

CHORUS

Brings us home, mmm

 

NASHVILLE

Standing in the streets of the Nashville, Tennessee

Walking in the shoes of every new tune, singing oh

Saw a Bluebird fly into a cafe, took it as a sign that’s where I should play

Singing oh

Chasing your dreams ain’t as dreamy as it seems

All I can do is be the best I can be

I’ve burned the boats, going home is not happening

‘Cause all my dreams are in Nashville, Tennessee

Gigging all the halls that no one wants to play

Doing all my dues, I’ll have a story someday, singing oh

Living on a dream and eating on the tips,

Waiting for the day for fate to kick in, singing oh

CHORUS

No pain no gain, spring comes with rain, Momma always said

"You’ll get ahead if you never give up, never give out, never lose heart

Live every day, learn from mistakes, this is your start...

You’re gonna make your mark, but times will get hard ‘cause"

"Chasing your dreams ain’t as dreamy as it seems

All you can do is be the best you can be

Give up can’t be in your vocabulary

When all your dreams are Nashville"

Chasing your dreams ain’t as dreamy as it seems

All I can do is be the best I can be

I’ve burned the boats, going home is not happening

‘Cause all my dreams are Nashville, Tennessee

Standing in the streets of the Nashville, Tennessee

Walking in the shoes of every new tune, singing oh

 

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU

Every day of your life, we've thought about you

What you dreamed, what you like

Things you may go through

We tried to love you the best way we knew how

We hoped you’d never want to venture out

And we still love you, no matter what you do

We’re here for you

As you’re away, we will pray

You stay out of trouble

We all learn different ways

And that’s okay

CHORUS

We learned a few things

We blamed ourselves

We never wanted

You where we could not help

CHORUS 2x

We’re here for you (2x)

 

BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE

I've got a guitar hangin' in my house 

Just sittin' there collecting dust 

'Cause there's no time to pick it up

He's got an old car rusting in his yard 

He's been thinkin bout taking it apart

But there's no time to do the things he wants 

But Maybe if we stopped watching TV 

We'd find the time for those things & people that we love 

These are the best days of your life

If you've got a heart that's beating, you've still got time

These are the years to dream, to think & say & rebelieve

These are the best days of your life

They've got a nice house & a couple kids

But they've never learned to camp or fish 

'Cause there's no time to leave this town 

She's got an old dream from her younger years

She's gettin courage to overcome her fears

'Cause there's no time like right now

Yeah, maybe if we got off our computer screens

We'd find the time for those things & people that we love

CHORUS

So start now, don't doubt

Pull the pen and paper out

Write it down, spell it out

Pretend your life is starting now

These are the best days of your life

If you've got a heart that's beating, you've still got time, yeah

These are the years to dream, to think & say & rebelieve

These are the best days of your life (3x)

 

NEVER LOSE MY HEART

Tell me what you’re thinking, I already know

You should know that your eyes, They always show me exactly what you’re feeling

And I’ll love you always, in spite of rainy days

And you will never lose my heart,

And our love knows no end,  and you are my closest friend

You will never lose my heart

Loving you is easy, it’s all I know

Everyday I’m dreaming of how I can show you exactly what I’m feeling (oh, oh)

CHORUS

And will love you, and I will love true,  and I will love you, my love

(2x)

So tell me what you’re thinking, I already know

 

WHAT TRUE LOVE MEANS

Why am I fighting all I’ve ever loved?

Why am I taking back my heart?

Why am I feeling  you are not enough?

Why am I falling out of  love?

You were everything I’d ever thought of dreaming

And my heart was taken, and now I’m rethinking

I love you, I’m staying, we’re finding what true love means

I like you, I’ll try to be everything you’ll ever need, oh oh oh oh

How did I lose you, where did go wrong?

Must have been thinking of myself

How do you I show you, you are what I want?

I feel like I’m falling back in love

CHORUS

I’ll give up anything for you, my true love

We’re gonna make it through

CHORUS

What true love means

WHAT MONEY CAN'T BUY

Workin, workin, workin to the top, top, top

Everybody wantin' whatcha got, got, got

And just about the time when they say to sell out

I’ll tell em, tell em, tell em that without a doubt

I’ve got all the things that money can’t buy

Faith ‘n hope, and I’m lovin’ life

Oooh, what money can’t buy

I’ve got all the things that I want in life

Love ‘n joy and peace of mind

Oooh, what money can’t buy

Lookin', lookin', lookin' for some good, clean fun

Don’t wanna get high, no, don’t wanna get drunk

Somebody come around, say you owe it to yourself

I’ll tell em, tell em, tell em, put it back on the shelf

I’ve got all the things that money can’t buy

Faith ‘n hope, and I’m lovin’ life

Oooh, what money can’t buy

I’ve got all the things that I want in life

Love ‘n joy and Jesus Christ

Oooh, what money can’t buy

And step to the rhythm of your heart

And let’s find a reason to round up

When everyone around try to getcha, getcha down

Knock you off your horse and take away your crown

I’m gonna sound out

CHORUS 1 & 2

Oooh, what money can’t buy (3X)

Yeehaw!

WELL DONE

When I stand before the maker of the earth   

The One who knew me even from my birth

And when He’s judging me while I am at the foot of his throne

Here’s some things I never want to be told

Don’t want to hear, “well said”, “well thought through”

“Well, at least you had good intentions”, no, no go

Don’t want to hear, “you barely made it by the hair of your chinny chin chin

You squeezed on in”, no hun, I wanna hear, “well done”

When I say a nice cliché to be lookin’ good

And when I think about saving a soul because I know I should

And as a passerby, preoccupied, I’ll probly justify

‘Til I remember, yeah, I’ll remember that I

Don’t want to hear, “well said”, “well thought through”

“Well, at least you had good intentions”, no, no go

Don’t want to hear, “you barely made it by the hair of your chinny chin chin

You squeezed on in”, no hun

I wanna hear, “my good and faithful one, you look just like my Son”

“Two walloping thumbs up, you are my favorite”

But if I underachieve, and don’t deserve regards like these

Then at least, I just can’t, I just don’t, I just won’t

Look me in the eye

Don’t want to hear, “well said”, “well thought through”

“Well, at least you had good intentions”, no, no go

Don’t want to hear, “you barely made it by the hair of your chinny chin chin

You squeezed on in”, no hun, I wanna hear, “Well Done”

I wanna hear, “well done”

 

OUT TO SEA

Oh, oh

You've only got one life to live, yeah

You've only got one life to give

Oh, if we don’t take a stand, We’re falling on sinking sand

If we don’t say a word, how’s the gospel gonna be heard?

Take the message, change the world

I’m going out to sea, I’m searching, oh who will be

Serving the King with me?

I’m prayin’, the word I read is changing, the life I lead

Come serve the king with me

Oh, oh

So many storms have tried to shake us

But our faith is growing stronger

Now we will navigate life’s waters

With the wisdom of the Father

CHORUS

And we will go we will be your light

Tell the world of Jesus Christ, come on

We will go we will be your light

Tell the world of Jesus Christ, Come on, yeah (2x)

CHORUS

Come serve the King with me

 

WAKE UP THE CITY

 

What’s it gonna take to clean up your act?

Another sermon tape or another fact? I don’t think so

Oh, and what’s it gonna take to get inside your head?

Another token prayer or a good book read? I don’t think so

‘Cause everything is pulling me, tryin’ to make me not believe

But now’s not the time to be spoon fed

Wake up form sleeping and don’t act so dead

‘Cause the hour is here, the minutes are near

The seconds are getting shorter

When Jesus returns, I don’t wanna be found sleeping

Or playin’ video games, watchin’ TV

Thinking this life is all about me

Lukewarm and idle, thinking He’s never comin’ back for me

So wake up your neighbors, wake up your friends

Wake up your parents before it’s the end

Wake up your city, wake up your church

Wake up your conscience and don’t get burned

Don’t be left behind, blinded by will

Knowing the times and sinning still

Left behind, blinded by will 

Knowing the times and sinning still

‘Cause the hour is here, the minutes are near

The seconds are getting shorter

When Jesus returns, I don’t wanna be found sleeping

Or playin’ video games, watchin’ TV, 

Thinking this life is all about me

Lukewarm and idle, thinking He’s never comin’ back for me

So wake up your neighbors, wake up your friends

Wake up your parents before it’s the end

Wake up your city, wake up your church

Wake up your conscience and don’t get burned (2x)

Before I see you clearly, I wanna know You

I don’t want my first time to bow be when I have to, oh

 

SONG OF SONGS

Kiss me with the kisses of your lips

Your love is better than wine, costly wine

Grace me with the scent of your perfume

You’re like a flower in bloom, one may assume

That’s why the maidens love you

No wonder the maidens love you

To me, you’re an apple tree in the woods

Stocked with every good

Darling you refreshen me, and with you is where I belong

This is my song of songs

I am dark for working in the sun brings me undone

But I’m still a lovely one; don’t focus on the darkness of my skin

See what’s within, you see within

And that’s why the maidens love you

No wonder the maidens love you

To me, you’re an apple tree in the woods

Stocked with every good

Darling you refreshen me, and with you is where I belong

This is my song of songs

The wine is like anything I hold dear

Perfume is your presence in my atmosphere

My skin is like the sin that would try to pull

My heart away from you, but you stay true

And that’s why the maidens love you

No wonder the maidens love you

To me, you’re an apple tree in the woods

stocked with every kind of good, yeah

Darling, you refreshen me, and with you is where I belong

And with you is where I belong

This is my song of songs

 

YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE

You know my momma, she never really loved me

You know my daddy, I remember when he left me

How could I forget?

You know that I am really not a rebel

I get attention when I get myself in trouble

So many regrets

But You, You were always there

Whispering in my ear, “I am here”

And now, I’ve opened up my heart

So let the healing start

I need You now

I met a boy, he told me that he loved me

He’d never leave me then he put his arms around me

Boy, was that a lie

He hit the road, left me with a baby

I found a note, said “don’t wanna be a daddy”

And that was our goodbye

But You, You were always there

Whispering in my ear, “I am here”

And now, I’ve opened up my heart

So let the healing start

I need You

And now, I realize my need for You to come and rescue me

You, You were always there

Whispering in my ear, "I am here"

And now, I’ve opened up my heart

So let the healing start

I need You, I need You, I need You now

Oh oh, oh oh

I need you now

SLAVERY (FEAT. PHIL KEAGGY)

I grew up like the other girls, full of dreams

Of growing up and marrying prince charming

But all my dreams were stripped away, suddenly

Into a life of slavery

And we can do something, instead of acting like it’s not really happening

So what can I give? What can I raise?

Who can I tell? What can I sell?

What can I do to save you from another day of hell?

I’m feeling so betrayed today, sold away by my own family

Living, dying, it’s the same

Is anybody hearing the prayers I pray?

Am I forever locked away in slavery?

And we can do something, instead of acting like it’s not really happening

  CHORUS

Could’ve been your daughter, your mother, your sister

Could’ve been you

Oh, it could’ve been, your daughter

Could’ve been, your mother

Could’ve been, your sister

Could’ve been you (2x)

CHORUS

I grew up like the other girls, full of dreams

 

OBEDIENCE

I am the bride, He is my beloved

I will not hide, I’m captivated

I am the bride, He is my beloved

I will abide, I’m captivated

Where I long to be is where He is

What I need to be is fully His

‘Cause I am Yours and You are mine and this will be my sign

Let my obedience be how I say I love You (2x)

Where I long to be is where He is

What I need to be is fully His

CHORUS

If laughter and joy should turn to pain

I will always praise Your Name

If ever my passion should not be the same

I will never leave you, I will never leave you

I will never leave you, I will never leave you

I will never leave you, I will never leave you

I will never leave Your side

CHORUS

I love you, I love you, I love you & I will never leave Your side

(Instrumental)

I am Yours and You are mine and this will be my sign

Let my obedience be how I say I love You

I am Yours and You are mine and this will be my sign

Let my obedience be how I say I love You

Let my obedience be how I say I love You

 

WANT YOU BACK (FEAT. PHIL KEAGGY)

As the thoughts twirl around in my head

I’m remembering every word that you said

I want you back with me

As I wait by the hospital bed

Watching the meter, holding onto your hand

I want you back with me

I want you back so I can breathe

As I’m praying on my knees, asking God if He would please

Give me one more day with you

All that’s left is to believe that your eyes again I’ll see

Caught in a dream, I see you smiling

Choosing to stay in the heavenlies

Still I want you back with me

I want you back so I can breathe

CHORUS

And I know that I want you, maybe selfishly

And I may never understand why you had to leave

And as I’m praying on my knees, asking God if He would please

Give me one more day with you

All that’s left is to believe that your eyes again I’ll see

I’ll be with you, you’ll be with me

Someday soon, I’ll be with you

I’ll be with you

HEAVEN

I opened my eyes and all I could see was brightness surrounding me

As I looked around I thought to myself, "could this be Heaven?"

I looked up and down those pure golden streets

The pearly gates and the brightly colored trees

As odd as it sounds, I thought something was missing

Then I saw the Crown Jewel of heaven, He was standing there

As He came closer to me I fell to my knees and I felt His stare

And the flowers were blooming everywhere

And the wind was blowing through my hair

All I could say was "Beautiful, I love you, I love you"

And all my questions disappeared, Suddenly my eyes were teared

All that He said was "Beautiful, I love you, I love you"

I saw the holes in His hands and the holes in his feet

That were made to fill the hole in me

I saw the holes in His hands and the holes in his feet

That were made to make me whole and complete

I opened my eyes and all I could see was darkness, surrounding me

Was this just a dream or was this a flash of eternity?

I wanna be there, Oh, someday we’ll be there (yeah)

And we’ll be caught up together in the air

And the Bridegroom will be standing there

And all we will say is "Beautiful, I love you, I love you"

In the twinkling of an eye we’ll be glorified eternally

And all we will sing is "Beautiful, I love you, I love you"

I love you, I love you

I love you, I love you

 

UNTIL ALL ARE FED

Have you ever been hungry? 

Have you ever lost hope?

Have you ever been desperate?

Absolutely nowhere to go

Repairing people, restoring lives

Bringing the gospel, sharing the bread of life

Until All are Fed, Until All are Fed

Have you ever been thirsty?

Have you ever lost a home?

Have you ever been humbled?

Life brought you where you didn’t want to go

CHORUS

Until All Are Fed(4x)

Have you ever been hungry?

SNOWING AGAIN

Snow is falling out of the sky

Snow angels already in flight

Icicles are forming as we speak

Snow men popping up all around

Snow ball fights everywhere to be found

We’re living in a snow white Christmas dream

It’s snowing again, momma’s baking gingerbread

Won’t you close the door again, they always forget

It’s snowing again, kids are outside on the sled

I don’t know how they stay warm the way they’re dressed

Caroling tunes are filling the air

Christmas wishes being declared

Someone sneaky’s peeking at their gifts right now

Mistletoe over every door

Trees and wreaths in every store

Manger scenes remind us what it’s all about (silent night)

It’s snowing again, trying not to overspend

Every year that love is here, my heart is content

It’s snowing again, every stranger’s now a friend

Christmas cheer we hare wishing it never to end

Frosty still has’t come to life

But Santa, he always comes just on time

It’s Jesus’ birthday once again

We thank Him for snowflakes falling out of heaven

It’s snowing again, no one’s sending us to bed

Christmas classics rolling we have loved since we were kids

It’s snowing again, New Year’s just around the bend

I can’t wait ‘til next year when we do this all again

It’s snowing again

Oh, It’s snowing again

It’s snowing again

 

*THE CHRISTMAS SONG (CHESTNUTS)

(NOT AN ORIGINAL, USED TRADITIONAL LYRICS)

FIRST CHRISTMAS NIGHT

Did you see the star in the east?

It's as bright as anything we've ever seen

I feel as though it's calling me

Come let's go with an offering

That's fit for a king, fit for king

I was just out tending my sheep,

when suddenly a sky of angels began to sing,

"Peace on earth and goodwill toward men"

Rushed to the stable in Bethlehem

Not fit for a king, fit for a king

I may never know why God chose me to be there

On the first Christmas night

To see the Savior open up his eyes

To watch Mary and Joseph cry

As they held Him for the very first time

All of our waiting was over

When God was delivered on earth

On the first Christmas night

I was told by an angel in the night

Not to be afraid but to take Mary as my wife

Said his name would be Jesus in a dream

But how could I prepare to be a father who was

Fit for a king, fit for a king

She looked like she was due any moment

But there sadly wasn't any room in my inn

I tried to help with all I had left & brought them

To the place where my animals were kept

Not fit for a king, fit for a king

I may never know why God chose me to be there

CHORUS

They were chosen by the Lord to love & keep & teach

The Child until He'd grown

Every dream they had given up to be the mom & dad

Of the One who'd save the world

CHORUS

The first Christmas night

 

PERSONAL SLEIGH RIDE

Carrots for the reindeer, milk and cookies for Santa Claus

I've been doing this since I was a tot

But I'm a little older & now I want to see time slow down

I wanna personal sleigh ride tonight

I wanna see Santa tonight

I wanna see a reindeer in flight                  

I wanna circle round the bright moon

And hang on for dear life

I wanna be the first one down the chimney

I want hold the big red bag of gimmes

I wanna personal sleigh ride tonight

I don't know what I was thinking when I was wishing for toys & cash

Had to have the latest Polly Pocket & a Peter Pollywog that blasts

But that's not good enough anymore, ‘cause I know what's in store

I wanna personal sleigh ride tonight

I wanna see Santa tonight

I wanna see the North Pole, that’s right

I wanna read obnoxious wish mail

See that list with my own eyes

I wanna taste that famous cocoa

I wanna find out what the elves know

I wanna personal sleigh ride tonight

I'm wishing big, not taking no for an answer

Not coming home ‘ti I meet Comet & Prancer, Heyaw!

I wanna see Santa tonight

I wanna be right there by his side

When he shouts “Merry Christmas to all

and to all a good night”

And just at the crack of dawn

When I see the sun is coming up

I’ll slip back into my beddy-bye

And tell you all about my personal sleigh ride

 

IT'S NOT THE SAME

When all my favorite stores seem to lose their appeal

And the carols that I love, their magical jingle

When colored lights and sales can't seem to lift my heart

It's then I know we must be far apart

It's not the same without you here with me

Decorate the house, put up the Christmas tree

Sat by the fire, laughed by the hour and dreamed, Just you & me                       

And I'll still hang you're stocking, But it's not the same

When my friends ask how do I do without you

You should never be alone this time of season

I hold onto the hope next year won't be so blue

Hold back the tears, I'll make it through

CHORUS

Ooooooo, I miss you (3x)

Ooooooo, sure miss you

CHORUS

SOMETHING ABOUT THE FAMILY

Who do we call when life gets out of hand?

The ones who love us and will listen and will try to understand

Who do we know who knows us best?

Can make us laugh and relax and never needs to be impressed

It's an unexplainable bond, oh

There's something about family that brings us home

Oh, there's something about family, helps us forgive the harshest wrongs

And I don't know what it is that keeps us strong through all life's storms

But there's something about the family that brings us home

Where do we go when we're misunderstood,

or when nothing seems to turn out in the way that we thought it would?

What do we know that brings more delight

than when the family's altogether loving each other? It's just right

It's an unexplainable bond, oh

CHORUS

Easter, Thanksgiving & Christmas, growing up

Mom and dad said we would always miss this

No matter where life takes us, in our hearts we'll always know, that...

CHORUS

Brings us home, mmm

 

*SISTERS

(NOT AN ORIGINAL, USED TRADITIONAL LYRICS)

MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS

Here we are, it’s Christmastime and everybody is singing

Carols of our Savior’s love from the very beginning

Angels sang of a coming King, Wise men followed a star to bring

Gifts of gold and gifts of myrrh, This young Lad was quite a stir

Frankincense and offerings, and lots and lots of rejoicing

Christmas day we celebrate the birthday of the King of Kings

Merry Merry Merry, Christmas Christmas

Merry Merry Merry, Christmas Christmas

Merry Merry Merry

Mary was a simple girl, young in age and beautiful

Revealed to her by Gabriel she’d bear the Savior of the world

For this young Boy was to bring the world out of its suffering

The greatest gift in history was offered up on Calvary

When Jesus gave His life so we could live with Him eternally

God and man unite again, Peace on earth, goodwill toward men        

CHORUS

Noel, Noel, the King is born today

Noel, Noel, in swaddling clothes He lay

Noel, Noel, come see on bended knee

Noel, Noel, He is why we sing

Merry Merry Merry, Christmas Christmas

Merry Merry Merry, Christmas Christmas

Merry Merry Merry, Christmas Christmas

Merry Merry Merry, Christmas

 

*O HOLY NIGHT

(NOT AN ORIGINAL, USED TRADITIONAL LYRICS)

GAME ON

Game on! Join the fight

We’ve finally got a man who will stand for what is right

Game on! Victory’s in sight

We’ve got a man who understands that God gave the Bill of Rights

Oh, there is hope for our nation again

Maybe the first time since we had Ronald Reagan

There will be justice for the unborn, factories back on our shore

Where the constitution rules our land

Yes, I believe Rick Santorum is our man

Game on! He’s got the plan

To lower taxes, raise moral, put the power in our hands

Game on! Change is at hand

Faithful to his wife and seven kids, he’ll be loyal to our land

CHORUS

Oh, it’s crazy what’s been slipping through our hands

When we the people are still supposed to rule this land

Rick understands

So there is hope for our nation again

Maybe the first time since we had Ronald Reagan

There will be justice for the unborn, factories back on our shore

Where the constitution rules our land

Yes, I believe Rick Santorum is our man (2x)

Yes, we believe Rick Santorum is our man

Game on!
