Her Song 03:50
The nights must be so cold for you Dark and lonely, shades of blue The bitterness burning deep No escape even in your sleep Your world reflects what’s in your mind All the hurt you won’t leave behind A heart that’s angry and so cold Slowly withers and grows old And I wonder how you got this way Is the answer in your past Has the heart in you been locked away What hides behind the mask Happiness must come from within It’s not a game you lose or you win You play the victim with a heavy heart It’s your movie, you chose the part I am sorry for the cross you bear But it’s only you who keeps it there Your life’s design is in your own hands It’s up to you to understand And I wonder how you got this way Is the answer in your past Has the heart in you been locked away What hides behind the mask Living in the past, you will never grow ‘Cause you can only reap the seeds you sew And I wonder how you got this way Is the answer in your past Has the heart in you been locked away What hides behind the mask Still I know it’s been so long this way Can you see the truth at last And find your way to a brighter day Forget about the past

When I think of all the things I did all wrong When I think of all the things I should have done I just can’t pretend that I treated you like a friend You had every right to run away from me You had every right to think I was crazy Maybe you were right and it just makes me realize That I got nothing but myself in this world And I wish I could go somewhere else Where my heart wouldn’t need love to survive I just wanna go back when I was ten And all I did was play with my friends I wonder if this hurt will ever end Can’t you see, can’t you see that I was falling down And all of my dreams have been chased away Can’t you see, can’t you see that I wanna leave this town ‘Cause there’s nothing left here for me to stay Well I guess that you were not my destiny Well I guess these things are always meant to be But I just can’t pretend this is how I want it to end Then again, I think if I had done things right You would still be right here in my arms tonight Oh baby, I don’t wanna have to say That I got nothing but myself in this world And I wish I could go somewhere else Where my heart wouldn’t need love to survive I just wanna go back when I was ten And all I did was play with my friends I wonder if this hurt will ever end Can’t you see, can’t you see that I was falling down And all of my dreams have been chased away Can’t you see, can’t you see that I wanna leave this town ‘Cause there’s nothing left here for me to stay Can’t you see, can’t you see that I was falling down And all of my dreams have been chased away Can’t you see, can’t you see that I wanna leave this town ‘Cause there’s nothing left here for me to stay

All For You 04:53
All of my life I’ve been waiting Hoping a dream would come true My heart did not even know it (I was) Searching for someone like you And then you came along and now I Sing a brand new song and now my Heart is on fire all for you Oh I never thought I’d find you Never knew a dream could come true Now I wanna live my life with you I feel my life’s just beginning So glad to know that you’re there I spend my time anticipating All of the love we will share Because you came along and now I Sing a brand new song and now my Heart is on fire all for you Oh I never thought I’d find you Never knew a dream could come true Now I wanna live my life with you Now that we’re finally together Still can’t believe that it’s true Your love is all that I hoped for How did I live without you Before you came along and now I Sing a brand new song and now my Heart is on fire all for you Oh I never thought I’d find you Never knew a dream could come true Now I wanna live my life with you

Come lay your head on me And tell me all about it There’s nothing you need keep from me To protect me from it Come lay your head on me And take some comfort in my arms This is the way that it should be Come closer, you’re too far It’s so hard to see you feel the way you do Today is better than yesterday but then the Sun is so very far away from you I hope all the pain is gone tomorrow is Another day the dawn will chase the sorrow All away with clouds and rain so skies are clear and blue Come lay your head on me Please don’t suffer all alone Come and draw some strength from me For a problem still unknown You could keep it all inside But why not talk to me This is the way that it should be Come closer, come closer to me Oh, it’s so hard to see you feel the way you do Today is better than yesterday but then the Sun is so very far away from you I hope all the pain is gone tomorrow is Another day the dawn will chase the sorrow All away with clouds and rain so skies are clear and blue I don’t know what you need, wish you could talk to me I don’t know what you need, wish you could talk to me Come lay your head on me and tell me all about it There’s nothing you need keep from me, to protect me from it I don’t know what you need, wish you could talk to me

Once again it’s time to say goodbye for a little while I’ll miss your hugs and your bed and your beautiful smile It’s getting harder every time to get back on the plane To leave the mountains and the ocean and the gentle falling rain It seems as though this is a test to see what we can endure With pain, expense and loneliness, sometimes we feel unsure But a year’s gone by and every day I thank God above For showing me what life can be when there’s so much love Each time I go you know I’ll be back again real soon It’s just for now that I sleep all alone in this room The distance that’s between us makes it hard for you and me Someday soon you know I will be free The life I have in my hometown, it’s getting harder to relate There’s so many dreams and things I wanna do, it’s difficult to wait I fantasize and I realize I can’t wear this mask for long ‘Cause home is where the heart is and my heart’s already gone Oh, when I go you know I’ll be back again real soon It’s just for now that I sleep all alone in this room The distance that’s between us makes it hard for you and me Someday soon you know I will be free Some people say that I’m running away I’m sorry that they feel this way I’m just trying to follow my heart And I know that I can’t stay My heart is gone away I’m living day to day Each time I go you know I’ll be back again real soon It’s just for now that I sleep all alone in this room Oh, the distance that’s between us makes it hard for you and me Someday soon you know I’ll… Maybe it won’t take too long Someday soon you know I will…be free

In My Dreams 04:16
And suddenly you turn up in my dreams You look the same, nothing has changed Couldn’t understand your pain I couldn’t break through the wall Time was running out and hope was running thin How could I break your fall You were like a leaf blowing in the autumn wind Up and down and turning all around in a darkening sky Tired of struggling, your world was crumbling I was left searching for all the reasons why And it’s so strange how you turn up in my dreams You’ve been gone for such a long time Are you older now and wiser now and do you feel alright In the peaceful world you live in tonight As the years go by I sometimes think of you I wish I’d had a better chance to say How much you meant to me and that I really cared Before suddenly, tragically, you were gone away And it’s so strange how you turn up in my dreams You’ve been gone for such a long time Are you older now and wiser now and do you feel alright In the peaceful world you live in tonight Are you older now and wiser now and do you feel alright In the peaceful world you live in tonight

There's a voice inside my head Sayin' it's time to go It's hard to imagine being for away I think I should take it slow It's so hard to say goodbye After all these years, why can't I Try to make it one more time Maybe it's better than tears Try and I try to cut off the ties That make me want to stay The voice it persists and it tugs at me Is there another way, oh Inside I know what will be It's really not that hard to see It's so hard to say goodbye After all these years, why can't I Try to make it one more time Maybe it's better than tears I have to get over my fears How can I just say goodbye After so much time, waiting for Things to be more clear to me I've got to make up my mind I'm trying to make up my mind It's hard to make up my mind

Quite by accident One day you looked my way Your eyes like the gold of sunlight Took my breath away Quite by accident Two hearts became as one The days were filled with ecstasy The summer nights were long How many times does it take me to learn To open my eyes to the signs on the wall When the cards spell out heartbreak No matter how they fall Quite by accident You broke my heart one day Quite by accident Love withered and faded away How many times does it take me to learn In matters of the heart, nothing ever happens Nothing ever happens, nothing ever happens Quite by accident, quite by accident

Today's the day, we'll go on from here This special day, we'll remember through the years With fond memories Each time we see a shooting star And each time we hear a favourite song, we will have Fond memories, fond memories When I look into your eyes tonight I feel so sure And when you hold me in your arms tonight Baby I'm all yours, uh huh You are for me, my lover, my friend What no one else can be, together ‘til the end With fond memories, fond memories Today's the day, we'll go on from here This special day, we'll remember through the years With fond memories, fond memories With fond memories, fond memories Oh, fond memories (we’re gonna have them) fond memories With fond memories, fond memories (oh baby) Fond memories, with fond memories (oh yeah) Fond memories (we’re gonna have them) fond memories….

I Will 03:18
I will remember your touch Remember how much I was so in love with you And I will hold you close to me Hold you tenderly Hold you only in my dreams Because you’re gone, leaving me out in the dark You’re gone, without me but with my heart You’re gone, I’ll try to be strong At least I’ve known heaven for just this long And I will remember your smile But when you said goodbye Made me feel like I would die Because you’re gone, reaching out for other arms You’re gone, but I can’t escape your charms You’re gone, I’ll try to be strong At least I’ve known heaven for just this long and I will..… Because you’re gone, reaching out for other arms You’re gone, but I can’t escape your charms You’re gone, I’ll try to be strong At least I’ve known heaven for just this long I will remember how much I loved you…so

We travelled through the storm together It’s gonna take much more than weather To put a stop to this love that we’re in Skies are clear for us there’ll be smooth sailing There won’t be any misdirection ‘Cause now we got the right connection Sun to our face, backed by the wind Got the combination for smooth sailing Stars guiding as our ship’s gliding As we begin to feel No more wondering why, no blues but the sky Just the thrill of life along the keel No doubt now that we’re gonna make it Our luck’s so good that we just can’t shake it With love for our breeze, we’ll sail the seas From here until forever with smooth sailing Stars guiding as our ship’s gliding As we begin to feel No more wondering why, no blues but the sky Just the thrill of life along the keel No doubt now that we’re gonna make it Our luck’s so good that we just can’t shake it With love for our breeze, we’ll sail the seas From here until forever, no matter what the weather From here until forever with smooth sailing
