Friday Morning Sunrise

It’s a bold new day
It all snaps in place
And I’ll pop this world wide open for me
It’s crazy
No matter what they say
I’m gonna make my way
Gonna bend my fate up, carrying me
They’ll see

I’ve logged some miles and covered ground
Paid my dues and now I. . . feel like a

Friday morning sunrise
The good days just ahead
I feel this warm light shining from me
And I’ll make everything brightest yet

Got some rough plans made
But it’s come what may
Gonna jump on board to whatever hits me
We’ll see
Gonna hold my light
Through any haters’ spite
And I’ll stack this deck up purposefully
To a tee

I’ve got some skills and know-how down
And I’m wide open now and I. . . feel like a

Friday morning sunrise
The good days just ahead
I feel this warm light shining from me
And I’ll make everything brightest yet

Nothing’s stopping me from rising
Higher, higher, higher
Come with me
Be free, completely

Friday morning sunrise
The good days just ahead
I feel this warm light shining from me
And I’ll make everything brightest yet

Natural You Tube video

Coming out of the rain
The bright horizon full frame
I slip right out of this skin
That was tattered and thin
To let you love me again

Without you, I survived
But good times felt so contrived
Now on some sweet wave of grace
You rode back my way
So I can love you again

You and me, yeah we got it down
You see…

‘Cause it’s a
Natural state
I love the
Natural way we
Fall into place here
Together, naturally

Fitting just like two spoons
Or voices in perfect tune
You and I are just right
Like a band so tight
We feel each other’s moves

You and me, yeah we got it down
You see…

‘Cause it’s a
Natural state
I love the
Natural way we
Fall into place here
Together, naturally

You’re my right arm and I
Need you like butterflies need wings to be beautiful

You and me, yeah we got it down
You see…

‘Cause it’s a
Natural state
I love the
Natural way we
Fall into place here
Together, naturally

Yeah, cause we’re a
Natural state
I love the
Natural way we
Fall into place here
Together, naturally

Let Her Go

You stay with me
And roll with all my ups and downs now
We sway roughly
But don’t fall overboard
You say it’s me
Uprising like a stormy sea
But that easygoing girl you need is not here

Let her go
That girl’s not real, just illusion
Let her go
She’s nothing more than a sham
I’ll explode this fantasy that you want me to be
Just take me, the real me, for who I am

It tortures me
This passion that I overflow with
So forcefully
Raw energy pours out
You love me, but still I wish that I could be
Lighthearted and way more carefree
I need … to…

Let her go
That girl’s not real, just illusion (just illusion)
Let her go
She’s nothing more than a sham (She’s just a sham)
I’ll explode this fantasy that I wish I could be
And love me, the real me, for who I am

It’s like I’m looking at a Vogue magazine
Can’t be perfection ‘cause that’s way too extreme

Let her go
That girl’s not real, just illusion (just illusion)
Let her go
She’s nothing more than a sham (She’s just a sham)
I’ll explode this fantasy I don’t need to be
And love me, the real me, for who I am

Let her go
That girl’s not real, just illusion (just illusion)
Let her go
She’s nothing more than a sham (She’s just a sham)
I’ll explode this fantasy I don’t need to be
And love me, the real me, for who I am

Living in a Love Song

First it was her or me
Yes, I won. Guess I’m lucky
Playlists you made for us
Made me sigh and blush
Songs are only moments
But we go on and on

It’s like we’re
Living in a love song on hit radio
Dancing through life in a top 40 show
Feeling every line as it’s ringing so true
Living in a love song with you

Back when things were shaky
Like the worst soap on TV
I had to turn right off
Every breakup song
But now that poor heart wrenching
Feels miles and miles from me

Because we’re
Living in a love song on hit radio
Dancing through life in a top 40 show
Feeling every line as it’s ringing so true
Living in a love song with you

Still, the best of songs just can’t capture this
monumental state of bliss

Living in a love song on hit radio
Dancing through life in a top 40 show
Feeling every line as it’s ringing so true
Living in a love song with you

Living in a love song on hit radio
Dancing through life in a top 40 show
Feeling every line as it’s ringing so true
Living in a love song with you

Extra Day

I want to make a new day
Between Tuesday and Wednesday
And bounce right out of the week
The clock would strike twelve at last
And we’d steal away so fast
A day for just you and me
Just like our own private island
‘Cause I need hours with you to extend

I want an extra day for you
I’d love to side step time, just us
We could slip off nice and smooth
Twenty-four hours with my sweet crush
A new day for you

Feeling bright as a daisy
We’d show up on Wednesday
Without missing a beat
My heart would be fully fed
My thirst for you newly quenched
Our sweet secret to keep
I want to take you and withdraw
I want to pause the whole world because…

I want an extra day for you
I’d love to side step time, just us
We could slip off nice and smooth
Twenty-four hours with my sweet crush
A new day for you

Our time is never enough
Let’s cross the date line and just run off
I need more you, but life just takes more me
Let’s jump into this opening

I want an extra day for you
I’d love to side step time, just us
We could slip off nice and smooth
Twenty-four hours with my sweet crush
A new day for you

Vinyl Voodoo

He likes the warm sound of vinyl, but his words are so cold
Got a thing for the music that’s old
The blues, his religion, and albums, his charms
He summons that guitar
And now I can’t do anything about it
And I fight but I’m under his spell

He spins that vinyl voodoo on me
He’s like a voodoo emcee, yeah
He makes that needle talk
And all my senses spin and fall
I can’t resist those blues
His vinyl is voodoo

His place smells of incense, and plants climb up the walls
In a frame, Dr. John’s down the hall
His cat is as black as a bayou new moon
I swear she feels my moods
And now I can’t do anything about it
And I fight but I’m under his spell

He spins that vinyl voodoo on me
He’s like a voodoo emcee, yeah
He makes that needle talk
And all my senses spin and fall
I can’t resist those blues
His vinyl is voodoo

Reclined on his couch
I melt to Toussaint
Then Snooks Eaglin comes on
And I’m gone

He spins that vinyl voodoo on me
He’s like a voodoo emcee, yeah
He makes that needle talk
And all my senses spin and fall
I can’t resist those blues
That vinyl is voodoo

Forgive Me for Not Forgiving You

Forgive me
for not forgiving you
Oh, it’s plain to see
You know what you do
Oh, yes you do

I’m trying to heal
And I don’t need point blank
I can’t bear the feel
Of your poison fangs

The slate’s not clean
And it’s broke in two
Forgive me
For not forgiving you

The slate’s not clean
And it’s broke in two
Forgive me
For not forgiving you

Sleepwalking to You

Climbing in through my dreams
You won’t let me forget you
Slinking right in between my
Soft bed sheets and my muse
Lured and I succumb
Now it feels like I’m

Sleepwalking to you
Slippin’ out under the moon
Drowsily I harken
You call me through the darkness and I’m
Sleepwalking to you

Stalking me in my mind, you
Echo like déjà vu
Glowing red neon signs speak
Pulling me back to you
Stretching through the shadows
You pull me through the willows

Sleepwalking to you
Slippin’ out under the moon
Drowsily I harken
You call me through the darkness and I’m
Sleepwalking to you

Drifting through the veil
Our spirits leave no trail
When our fingers touch
I never felt so much, so much

Sleepwalking to you
Slippin’ out under the moon
Drowsily I harken
You call me through the darkness and I’m
Sleepwalking to you

I'm Not Ready Yet You Tube video

You drew a picture of me and you
With purple crayon so sharp and new
And I felt richer than anyone
It said “I love you, from me to mom”
I read you books as you lay in bed
You had your favorites, you always said…

(Chorus 1)
Oh, come on
Please don’t make that the last one
Read it again like the last time
It’s too early for bed
I’m not ready yet

(V2)
You rode the school bus and made new friends
Stacked up those Legos until they fell
You went through clothes just like water then
You thought the big kids must be age 10
In early summer, you got a bike
I let go as you held on so tight
I said …

(Chorus 2)
I… I guess that push was the last one
You needed me for the last time
You can do it yourself
I’m not ready yet

(V3)
Now in the basement four boxes high
Near that old bike you’re too big to ride
That’s where your books went and all your toys
You had to save them, we had no choice
There in some papers of things you drew
I found that picture of me and you
And thought

(Chorus 3)
Ah, you never know it’s the last one
You never know it’s the last time
I’ll never forget
But I’m not ready and
Ah, you never know it’s the last one
You never know it’s the last time
Good days are ahead
But I’m not ready yet

Emerging from inside

We don’t even have to try

It's a Breeze You Tube video

Drop your worries, pick up on
This fine stream of love we’re riding on
Don’t believe those silly rumors life is a chore
I’m tellin’ ya, just
5, 4, 3, 2 count it down with me
We’ll blast off and next you’ll see
What’s behind us shrink and disappear out of view

(CHORUS)
Come on, let’s
Breeze, breeze down this highway
Speed up this ride now
No trial’s too strong
To drag us down we’ll
Breeze, breeze down this highway
We’ve got more inside us
This life isn’t done
We got it, it’s a breeze

(verse 2)
Windows down, we’re flying by
And this fresh air smells like paradise
And we’ve got our destination right, we’re all clear
So now just
Sing with me, now don’t be shy
We got great tunes on, and turned up high
and our hearts stocked full with all supplies we could need
come on, let’s…
(Repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Right now, in this moment
I feel something growing
Strong good vibes are flowing out all around
This, here, now and after
Let’s keep up the laughter
Let’s relive this chapter time and again..

Life Is Gonna Be Great! You Tube video

Life is gonna be great (gray ay ay ay ate)
Can't you see, I just radiate (ray ay ay ay diate)
Now I'm dustin' off my wings
I'll go hovering high up there
'Cause now I've shaken off the weight I don't need 
and I'm free and clear
Without any fear

(Chorus)
Here I go 'cause my life's taking off
There's no ceiling, I broke down the walls
I'm on fire, I can't be rattled
I'm on top, I've won my battles
Here I go 'cause my life's taking off

(Verse 2)
In myself I've got faith (fay ay ay aith)
Dreams are meant to be chased (chay ay ay ay ased)
Bright red carpet's rolling out
Things unfolding so naturally
And now I'm revving up for
These days to come so excitedly
No limits on me

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
Oh, how I've waited for this to come around
Been such a long time coming, I'm ready now

What If You Came Back to Me

(verse 1)
You strolled right in on page 23 of my book about love and 
things I wish could be and fresh flowers bloomed in 
sequence as we walked by
I fell so hard and it went so fast, I guess whirlwind 
things sometimes don’t last
and I found myself, wishing we would have tried
And I’m wondering here tonight…

(chorus)
What if you came back to me
Just wipe the past and
join me in my fairy tale
What if we could instantly
Forget the reasons we’re apart.

(verse 2) 
A big loud boom through my sugar-sweet world
when we came crashin’ down, it was all I heard
I stood strong but I, was curled up and crying inside
You rule my mind with your ripped up jeans and you own my 
soul with that smile that beams
now this time around, I’m bettin’ it just might fly
And I’m wondering here tonight…

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
I remember dancing close
and how you melted me
I relive each tender touch
Now this just shouldn’t be… and I miss you
Oh, I miss you….. I love you…… still
Ahhhhhhhhhhh…    
     
(chorus)
What if you came back to me
Just wipe the past and
join me in my fairy tale
What if we could instantly
Forget the reasons we’re apart.

(chorus 2)
Just come on back to me
We’ll leave the past and
start a little fairy tale
I know that we’ll instantly
Forget the reasons we were apart.

Not Even Close


(Verse 1 )
That guy you see around me
That one who’s charming as can be
Right now he’s close inside my world
At every turn
Can’t say that he means nothing
It’s true, he’s something of a friend
I care ‘cause that’s just who I am
It’s nothing new
He fades from view
‘Cause next to you

(Chorus )
He’s not even close
It’s you that I chose
And I never question or compare you
He’s not even close
Just mirrors and smoke
‘Cause there isn’t anyone out there who
Means near what you do

(Verse 2)
That girl you’ve worried over
That one you fear I can’t let go
I used to love her then inside a different time
You know I still respect her
There’s some connection still, but know
That love was buried long ago
But next to you
She fades from view
Like they all do

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
I’ve seen the others
They’re all lackluster
In shadow of you’re light
There’s not another
Who makes the cut and I’ve
Already won the prize

Could I, Should I?
You Tube video

Would you hold your umbrella in the rain for me?
Would you show me good old-fashioned chivalry?
I might get swept up just like an ingénue
But could I, should I with you?

If I kept you waiting there till half past eight
Would you smile and tell me still that I look great?
A guy like that could make me come unglued
But could I, should I, with you?

(Bridge)
Night falls, you’re on my mind, as expected
My thoughts spin counterclockwise back to the time
You first caught my eye

Are you strong enough to always do what’s right
Make me feel secure and let the small things slide
A guy like that might be a wise pursuit
But could I, should I, with you?

(Repeat Bridge)

Would you hold your umbrella in the rain for me?
Would you show me good old-fashioned chivalry?
I might get swept up just like an ingénue
But could I, should I with you?

You Make Me Sing You Tube video

(verse 1)
You, you make me sing . . . about happy things and
You make my heart ring . . . I feel just like a
spoonful of joy, I twirl like a toy,
rushing with sunshine, lifting my voice
You just make me want to sing

(verse 2)
I, I’m taken in . . I feel warm and toasty
I just love it when . . you got this way of
Bringing me up, smoothing me out,
rounding my edges, trashing the rut
You just make me want to sing

(bridge)
I see you here beside me
It’s better than before
You sail me straight to happy
With/there’s so much more in store
I can’t contain this stirring urge of singing (doo…)

(verse 3)
You, you make me sing . . .like daydream-inspired
Blue fresh morning wind . . each whisper of you
floats ‘round my mind, drifts out of time,
bounces through heaven ‘cause you’re so divine
You just make me want to sing

(repeat bridge)

Maybe I'll Sleep It Off
You Tube video

(verse 1)
I’ve tried
To pretend it’s OK
And enjoy us this way
But five
minutes near you close-range,
My composure’s in vain
And tonight all I feel is
I want you right here with me
But, you’re not

(chorus)
Maybe I’ll sleep it off
And I won’t feel this longing
that pulls at my thoughts
Maybe I’ll sleep it off
And I can dream away
these desires that won’t stop
I’ll sleep you off

(verse 2)
Just you
With oblivious charm
Hits my soft spot dead on
I swoon
Get all woozy inside
Feelings rush to high tide
Every night you’re not here
though I want you to be with me
But, you’re not

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Feel my words touch you
Breathe me in the air
Veer this way, break through
Find me there

Dead Wrong

(Verse 1)
You shoot your words out recklessly
taking sloppy aim at me
And now I got you blacklisted
I’ll stay just beyond your reach
Your ways, they just ain’t right and
If you think I’ll let it slide

(Chorus)
You’re dead wrong
You’re dead wrong
If you think that just rolls off
You’re dead wrong
You’re dead wrong
Now, you’re gonna see my claws
You’re dead wrong

(Verse 2)
I’ve always been a spiritual girl
a Jesus wanna-be
Forgiveness sounds endearing
But you’d just walk all over me
You might think I’m sweet as pie but
If you think I’ll let it slide

(repeat chorus)

(Bridge)
Truth is I feel for you
Love is clear through the roof
Teeming with sunshine most days
Please take care, no more blood
All that’s here, don’t mess up
You’ll see I’m worth your hardest try

(Instr. section)

(Verse 3)
I let you know straight up how I feel
My best diplomacy
But then you snap back nasty and mean
My side you just don’t see
You’re full of all that pride and
When you won’t apologize…

(Chorus)
You’re dead wrong
You’re dead wrong
That stuff don’t just roll off
You’re dead wrong
You’re dead wrong
If you think I’m gonna take that for long
You’re dead wrong

Let It Fall

A hopeless shade of blue
Just like the rain outside
I’m overdue
For God’s sweet reply

Drowning in this brew
Of all these aching, aching feelings of mine
I’m pulled out to
The streaming divine

(Chorus)
Sprinkling down with the rain
My soul’s reclaimed
I’m healed in awe
Let it fall
Let it fall

(Verse 2)
Oozing out my pain
Cool water surging through my soul
Easing the strain
That’s taken a toll

I breathe in a change
Those demons never, never coming back
I feel ordained
As rain runs down my neck

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
From here forward I feel powerful
Come whatever will
I own each day, I'll make my way
Now I’ll be fulfilled

Do the things that say

Let’s love each other, find the best of us, through love
Let’s love each other, Love is only good, so good, oh, so good

About imagining living in peace
Yet it rolls off my tongue
Because love it still all we could need

Soul Repair

Say that you love me
You know just what I crave
Coax me so subtly
In your own special way
Feel my touch linger
Even when you’re away
‘Cause you got the single
Bait that’s keeping me crazed

(Prechorus)
And when life hunts you down
I can help you rebound

(Chorus)
Glide, slide your way to my lovin’
I’ll fix you up with such care
Fly to my shelter for cover
Where it’s just you and I
for some soul repair

(Verse 2)
When you’re surrounded
People pushing your space
You feel confounded
At the end of the day
Tune out that chaos
Know my love doesn’t sway
(‘cause) I got your flavor
Like a midnight buffet
When your mojo’s run dry
You know I can provide

(Repeat chorus)

(Bridge)
Here, I’ll cradle you softly
All night you’re got my ear
Let your arms fall across me
Tell me all of your fears

Epiphany You Tube video

Star light, star bright
Heed my wish tonight
Hear my desires
Make them realize
And though I work long and try my hardest
Parts remain unfulfilled
And though I pray hard, yet each tomorrow
Still won’t bend to my will

(prechorus)
I wait with haste
Now I see
That faith is what I need

(chorus)
It’s an epiphany
Epiphany of learning to let go
It’s my epiphany
I finally see that I can trust the flow
I know, I know . . to let go

(verse 2)
Long nights, wound tight
Worry’s got me fried
Life won’t comply
Fear obscures my sight
Although I’ve done well, my sheer ambition
Can’t make planets align
And now I just can’t escape admitting
True control isn’t mine

I Claim You

It’s something like flying
Or something that good
I feel like sunshine
Over tall redwoods
‘Cause I’m in the best place
Here in your arms
You’re like my home base
Safe, secure and warm

(chorus)
Sometimes I’m out there all alone
And start to lose my sight
But then you hold me close and tell me everything will work out right
If there’s just one soul
To give forever to
I claim you . . . Yeah, I claim you

(verse 2)
It’s nothing like fire
That burns and then dies
It’s steadily brighter
Like a slow sunrise
My smile is inspired
By just who you are
You never get tired
Of doling out your heart

(bridge)
Can’t deny
You fit me just how I like it
Covering me like a blanket
You got my back
All along
You’ve been the purr in my engine
You’ve made me soft like a kitten
With how your love . . .sprinkles over me

At Your Own Risk You Tube video

Like a gray winter sunrise
Hiding its sweet hot shine
You put a hazy smoke screen up just keeping your heart from mine
I know you’re been hurt before
But we’re in love hardcore
So be with me, stay with me

(chorus)
At your own risk, I’ll love you forever
At your own risk, Can you handle the real thing?
I’ll tell you this - You’ll never find something better
Than days with happy mornings
At your own risk, Are you up for the challenge?
At your own risk, feel love like you never have
I’ll tell you this - We’ll keep it in perfect balance
And stay together in love

(verse 2)
Now don’t expect grand perfection
This is reality
Everyone has bad days straight from a crashing and burning scene
But in me, there’s no blood that’s cold
Only liquid gold
So be with me, stay with me

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
You know I want this with a passion
Let’s hold on tight and jump right in

My New Favorite Song You Tube video

I’m just swimming in ecstasy
Every time you pull me close
Last night seems like a dream to me
Here’s what I remember most
We could hear that music playing loud out on the town
Can’t recall the words, but darlin’, that’s my new favorite song

(chorus)
It went like
doo doo doo…
Doo doo doo…
…my favorite song

(verse 2)
You’re front row for my fantasy
You’re making it all unfold
Last night it became clear to me
You and I from the same mold
And we were free and flying on the sound of that sweet song
Oh it felt so good when you and I were singing along

(chorus)
It felt like
doo doo doo…
Doo doo doo…
…my favorite song

(bridge)
Now that melody plays on and on in my head
Taking me straight back to that charmed night that we had

(break w/ hand claps)
(repeat chorus)

At the End of the 13th Week You Tube video

(verse 1)
I was glad when we split
Had enough of that bit
Where we argued in circles all night
By the third week, it hurt
Every song that I heard
Cut right through my well-meaning denial
But I couldn’t fight it, and I knew I was beat
At the start of the 13th week

(verse 2)
Saw you that Saturday
Said your new girl is great
But you can’t help from wanting me back
Then way deep down inside
I heard voices that cried
Maybe this time it wouldn’t be bad
After careful debate, I decided my fate
At the end of the 13th week

(chorus)
I was done with the heartache that spread to my toes
That’s a pain I don’t care to repeat
It took time and persistence, but wounds are all closed
At the end of the 13th week

I’m Wearing Black You Tube video

Heat wave swelters on
Night cats start their prowl
I’m doing up my hair
Can’t wait to get there
‘Cause I’m ready now
To feel your full-on power next to me

(chorus)
I’m wearing black and I’m ready to see
If you can crack my little coy mystery
‘Cause where I want you to be tonight
Is cozy and close to me

(verse 2)
Shoulder straps so thin
Hair falls on my skin
Little make-up on
It’s only you I want
‘Cause I’m ready now
To let your full-on power conquer me

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Jazz beat driving
Coinciding with my heart racing for you
Time is flying
Swirling by,
My world is down to just us two

You Matter to Me

Finding time can be so hard
We’ve got calendars
Filled up with words that push us both apart
For you I’d wipe mine sparkling clean
‘Cause you matter, you matter to me

(chorus)
You matter to me
Like a spring honeybee
To a dewy new blossoming flower
‘Cause you are to me
Like a sweet melody
You matter, you matter, to me

(verse 2)
Can’t hear your own voice in the crowd
You say that they don’t care
You’re just a number on a plastic card
That noisy world out there can’t see
That you matter, you matter to me

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Count your steps to me
I’m waiting here so patiently

(repeat chorus)

Redeemed

I lay beneath the rubble of my life,
Yet I believe, I believe
That even though I used to take what’s mine and run,
Love sets me free
God can help me,
But each day’s up to me

(chorus)
And I’ll never be the person that I was again
And I’ll never live so blindly
Here’s where I begin, not where I end
And now I, declare myself redeemed

(verse 2)
I fell face down into this desperate time
Yet still I breathe, still I breathe
And although I can barely face the way I lived,
I look at me
And I see someone
Kinder I can be

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Grudges thrown out the window
I’ll clear some room to grow

(repeat chorus, last 2 lines for tag)

This Might Be Good You Tube video Don't Wonder - Angela Predhomme

We’re headed straight for memory lane
Though I just met you
I see possible pictures of two framed on my wall
I’ve waited and I think you’re the one
To charge my heart up
Keep on coming my way till you got me all to yourself

(chorus)
Ooooh… this might be good
Ooooh… this might be good between you and me

(verse 2)
I’m open for a quality man
To soak my sweet love up/in
I could cook up some dreams filled with me in love with you
You’re my favorite preoccupation
You got me gushing
Warm and fuzzy and glowing on cue when I’m around you

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
I’ve had this fear of serious notions
My heart’s been stretched too far before

What Your Words Don’t Say

(verse 1)
Your face becomes so sincere
While I empty my soul in your ear
You listen in silence to my fears

(chorus)
What your words don’t say
I hear each time you lift me up after a hard day
What your words don’t say
I hear the way you’re always there for me without fail
I see every day
What your words don’t say

(verse 2)
You give the support I need
Helping in my drive to succeed
You never complain I ask too much

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
I know you’ll be there
I know you will, you will, you will, you will, you will

Don’t Wonder You Tube video

(verse 1)
Your prayer is whispered in the dark
That your ship will come and take you far from where you are
The big city wants your dime
When weight is on your shoulders, you can cry on mine
Sometimes you feel like you’re alone in this world
But I’m here, and strong enough for two, so..

(chorus)
Don’t wonder, don’t wonder
It’s as sure a thing as ice cream in the summer
Don’t wonder, don’t wonder
You can bet that I will be there like no other

(verse 2)
You taste success, now on that climb
Your cell phone never gets a rest till after nine
Smooth social climbers cloud your head
When no one else is real, just turn to me instead
I’d hate to think of where I’d be without you
I know you’d do the same for me, so…

(bridge)
We’ve got quite a history
Good times and memories
We know how each other feels… without… a word, so

(repeat chorus)

Deeply

(verse 1)
I give in
You slipped through my barricade
I’ve hidden
Feelings that I’m scared to face
Behind camouflage I fear this fate

(chorus)
I’m deeply in love with you
To please each sweet part of you
Completely, is everything I need
Because my soft skin, it longs for you
Each breath in, belongs to you
You’re deep in, so deeply in my heart

(verse 2)
I love you
That is all I know
You seep through
Flesh into my soul
I’m helplessly bound in rapture with you

(chorus 2)
I’m deeply in love with you
To please each sweet part of you
Completely, is why I’m in this world
Because my soft skin, it longs for you
Each breath in, belongs to you
You’re deep in, so deeply in my heart

Everything is Alright

(verse)
Deep inside, I have the feeling
That everything is alright
Even when it’s less appealing
I look on the bright side and
People try to get me down and
Sometimes I guess I let ‘em
But it’s never, ever ending,
I guess I’ve got to just

(chorus)
Remember everything is alright
Remember people are just uptight
They’ve got their little problems
Maybe they hate their jobs and
I know it’s them and not me

(verse 2)
People comin’, people goin’
And all the while I’m knowing
They’ve got issues, they’ve got dramas
It’s really not my problem
Try to lift ‘em up, I try to
Give ‘em a little smile and
Keep it real and let the light in
And then I like to tell ‘em

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
It can be so hard to keep your head up and I say
Do your best, you know you are like nobody else, in this dream

(Instrumental verse)

Georgia

(verse 1)
He sat down and ordered some breakfast
He sat down and ordered a meal
And the waitress, then she brought it
And he wondered what she’s thinkin’ ‘bout and outside
The sun’s climbing high

(chorus)
Hey now, I’d like to get to Georgia, just to see Savannah
Spanish moss and ocean breezes
Things out there you’ll never know unless you leave your comfy place and
Endeavor to live . . . .to live. . .

(verse 2)
He sat down and ordered a new life
He didn’t know what road to pursue
And he looked at her and maybe she knows,
She knows what he’s thinkin’ bout and outside
The sun’s ridin’ high

(chorus)
(instrumental verse)

(verse 3)
He sat down and started some planning
He sat down and ordered a beer
‘Cause nobody said it’s easy
And he sees her and he starts to smile and outside
The sun’s goin’ down

If I Could Love Like My Dog You Tube videoAngela

If I could love like my dog
I’d see everyone the same
I’d live only here and now
I would be happy all the every day
No cares about the future
or ties back to the past
If I could love like my dog

If I could love like my dog
I’d forgive and forget
I’d overlook all the flaws
With unconditional love
No cares about the future
or baggage from the past
If I could love like my dog

(Bridge)
Lovin’ livin’ only for now
Happy with the world as it is
With kindness I overflow
My heart is pure goodness . . .

If I could love like my dog
I would never second guess
I wouldn’t need much at all
I could be satisfied with less
No cares about the future
or ties back to the past
If I could love like my dog

Just Like Magic

The slowest seduction
You call to my passion
You are the lie that I choose to believe
Take all my money
Steal the fire I thrive on
You can take anything you want from me

(chorus)
Whatever you want, I’ll make more . . just like magic
You know I can deliver it all . . just like magic
Just like magic
So close you reach through me
Absorbing into you
I would dissolve without you within me
Sustained by your power
Throw out all my discretion
You can take anything you want from me

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Fill me up and pour out through me
For you, I’m always open

Your beauty glows from inside you
When it’s cold and dark,
the warmth and light are within you

And it’s a big, big world
And I’m always right here to guide you . . . to follow your heart

(verse 2)
Little one
You have your whole life before you
Be good and be kind,
You’ll see your strength will move mountains

(chorus)
And don’t you give it up
And I’m always right here to guide you . . . to follow your heart

Every road that you follow
Won’t be easy, keepin’ it right . . . but you will fly

Nemesis

(verse)
Nemesis, you’re right behind me,
stalkin’ slowly, hopin’ that I fall
I feel you back there breathing like a
predator behind a silent wall

(chorus)
Nemesis, you’re shifty and you’re dark inside,
You try to keep my down
Do what you will, your intentions paralyze just you in the end

(verse 2)
Nemesis, you’re cold and sometimes sinister,
but you don’t fool me
I’ve seen that there’s good in you
release all of your insecurities

Passing the Days

(verse 1)
I don’t need no reason
I don’t need no excuse
Worry’s got nothing on me, I lay in the sunshine
Giving my troubles away, up to the sky

(chorus)
Sweetly passing the days when I am lazy and dreamin’ big
I’m sweetly passing the days when there is laughter and you

(verse 2)
Tell that man knockin’ at my door, nobody’s home here
Tell him that I don’t like his style
Stressin’ and playing the game just gets me nowhere
Giving my troubles away, up to the sky

(chorus)

(bridge)
Over and over again it seems
Stumblin’ along, I forget that it’s all about love

Release

(verse 1)
Come to me
Sit right here and rest awhile
Let our energies collide
Set aside those other things
Here with me
Open up and close your eyes
(you) Don’t have to be so distant
So don’t hold back and let yourself

(chorus)
Release, and share what’s on your mind
I’ll take your pain away
Let the words come through you
Release, confide it all in me
Let go and look no further
I am always her

(verse 2)
Next to me
Hear the silence slip away
Pour it out and let me in
I’m never judging you
Trust in me
And you’ll never be let down
The words twist up inside you
So don’t hold back and let yourself…

Too Much Time

(verse 1)
Beauty charms the world, I learned long ago
I wanted to be like Marilyn Monroe
They all love the picture of perfection,
If I’m everything they think that I should be

(chorus)
But I’ve spent too much time worryin’ ‘bout looking pretty
Gonna pay no mind to those women on the TV
Maybe I’m just fine, the way that God created me
I’ve spent too much time tryin’ to please everybody
Wasted too much time wonderin’ when he’s gonna call me
Now I see, I’ve got to take care of me

(verse 2)
Lipstick smiles might take me where I want to go
But will that place nurture my soul?
They loved Marilyn who had it all, but did she
Ever find real happiness at all?

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Don’t you know I’m more than my reflection?
Underestimate me and you’ll see

(chorus)
I’ve spent too much time worryin’ ‘bout looking pretty
Gonna pay no mind to those women on the TV
Maybe I’m just fine, the way that God created me
I’ve spent too much time tryin’ to please everybody
Wasted too much time wonderin’ when he’s gonna call
You know it’s just high time, I started takin’ care of me

Transparent Eyes

(verse 1)
You're thinkin' bout your troubles again
I'm thinking that your fear never ends
It's lookin' like you'll always pretend with me
I'm thinkin' that my time's been a waste
Worried that you'd laugh in my face
It's lookin' like I'll always pretend with you

(chorus)
Behind your transparent eyes...I see you
Live by the rules you've been given
Behind your transparent eyes... are you happy?
Silence the voices within you... in your heart

(verse 2)
You do the housework, keep up the lawn
You pay your bills, are you just a pawn?
You let it slide 'cause everyone's just the same
But look inside, you'll find so much more
Take that step, walk through that door
Think outside the world you're subscribing to
(repeat chorus 2X)

Welcome Home

(verse 1)
Years ago you couldn’t see
Turned away from what was real
Sometimes it’s hard to face the truth
New doors are opening for you

(verse 2)
You have his face, you have his name
Through all these years, through all the blame
But justice comes and finally
Things get the way they’re supposed to be

(chorus)
Hear him whisper, “welcome home,”
You never really were alone
Love’s the only thing that’s real
Now it’s alright, and you’re home

(verse 3)
The answer’s always about love
We only heal when we forgive
You made it through those darkest days
You have such strength, I am amazed

When I'm Gone You Tube video

(verse 1)
I wonder if you'll ever miss me when I'm gone
And will you throw away my picture and my song
Giving's been the bigger part of give and take
Done all that I can, I leave it up to fate
I wonder if you'll ever miss me when I'm gone

(verse 2)
I open up the dirty window as you go
I see the candle on the sill is getting' low
Melody and harmony aren't sounding right
Letting go is all that I can do tonight
I wonder if you'll ever miss me when I'm gone

(bridge)
I keep thinking about you now
Even though I'm ready, ready to move on
I know this isn't all you got
You could push it harder, you could give me more

(verse 3)
I've got a closet full of weathered, stone-washed dreams
I know that I've been on the harder side to please
Can't see through the fog out of the morning train
I'll keep my head together for another day
I wonder if you'll ever miss me, when I gone

Christmas Time with You

Look out your window baby where the snow is falling down
There's a thick white blanket covering all of this town
Everyone is inside, they’re getting ready to eat
By the table I keep one empty seat
For you’re not here, what can I do?
It’s another Christmas time without you

I wanna hold you so close and never, ever let go
We'll go walking and play around in the snow
We'll watch the sun go down and then the moon appear
We'll eat mince pies and drink red wine and beer
Then we’ll cuddle closer, like we just love to do
Oh Baby, I wanna spend Christmas time with you

Christmas time with you
I want Christmas time with you

I ask Father Christmas for just one little thing
It's something only the angels can bring
To see you walk on in here now, through that creaky old door
I couldn't want for anything more
It would stop me feeling sad, hurting and blue
Oh Baby, I wanna spend Christmas time with you

Christmas time with you
I want Christmas time with you
My Christmas should be with you

Unplugged Christmas

(V1)
I hit return and then
I wonder where time’s gone, gone, gone
It’s dark and after ten
I type a message to my friend
We’re all so busy, sure
But screens and pictures lose appeal
Just give me something real

(Chorus)
I want an unplugged Christmas
Tune out the world
Just laugh and pass the time with each other
It’s Christmas, let’s
Unplug it all, unwind our minds,
Detach from the grind and
Cherish this time

(V2)
Your phone lights up again
Where has the time all gone, gone, gone
I wonder where you’ve been
Let’s reconnect with our old friends
I’d love to see your face
Come by my place and kick up your heels
And we’ll get back to real

We’ll have an unplugged Christmas… (repeat chorus)

(Bridge)
Face to face, no place too far
to see your smile decorate my heart
Light that tree and share your feelings
Tell me all, both good and bad

(repeat chorus)

Oh Christmas

"Oh Christmas" FREE DOWNLOAD

Oh, Christmas
It’s what I’m starting to hear
The whispers reaching my ears
of warm intentions
Oh, Christmas
We’ll burn the coziest fire
While wrapping love that’s disguised
As pretty presents

(Chorus 1)
Everyone I know deserves a little bit o’ love
Every face I’ve seen through the year
Now’s the time to see the good and try to rise above
Petty things that compromise our cheer

Oh, Christmas
The ground is fashionably green
But I imagine a scene
With snowy sleighrides
Oh, Christmas
Let’s take our kindness inside
And test it out for a ride
And love each other

(Chorus 2)
Everyone out there deserves a little bit o’ love
Even when it’s not always clear
Now’s the time to see the good and try to rise above
Petty things that compromise our cheer

Oh, Christmas
We’ll take that plain ol’ green tree
Color it beautifully
Like a makeover
Oh, Christmas
The word that’s out on the street
Is that the season’s complete
When hearts are open

(Chorus 3)
Everyone out there deserves a little bit o’ love
Tenderness and smiles so sincere
Now’s the time to reach out and to brighten someone’s day
The magic of the holidays is here

My Season's Good

This time of year
Something comes over me
And makes my fears
Melt like the snowflakes
The season’s here
Dressed up in all its glory
But I take a look inside
I see some days are heavy
And some nights more dark
But what’s steady are the happy parts

(Chorus)
I feel good this holiday
I see how I’ve got it great
People I love, loving me back
I don’t need this holiday
To see and appreciate
I’ve got things no money can buy
And that’s why… my season’s good

(Verse 2)
I take his hand
Passing the fresh pine garland’s
Lush green strands
Wrapped ‘round the lamppost
We’ve got a plan
List in my left coat pocket
Scouting out stores downtown
We can give these presents
Send out all those cards
That’s all pleasant, but I know what counts

(Repeat chorus)

(Bridge)
Bells and holiday songs fill the air
Times like this are special, I’m aware
Come next year my love will still be there
To give back everything my big heart could never fit in

(repeat chorus)
