Life And The Romantic

 

Morning Song

I wake up in the morning

And I got my engines goin’

Let me tell you something

I’ve got lots of things to do

I see the sun is shining

Bright on the horizon

The shadow of the night has faded

Right into the blue

 

And as the sleep falls from my eyes

I’m giving thanks to God

For the brand new day

And another chance to dream

 

A dream of life, a dream of love

A dream of a world at peace

In universal harmony

With no one out of key

A chance to watch the children play

And see them grow up strong

A chance to be alone to pray

And sing my morning song

 

La Da Da Da Da ……………. Sing a morning song

La Da Da Da Da ……………. Should unto the Lord

La Da Da Da Da ……………. Sing it out with joy

La Da Da …………………… A brand new morning song

 

Yesterday is over now

Tomorrow’s still to come

The moment that we’re livin’

Is to do and get it done

The shackles of the past are broken

They can’t hold you now

Can’t you hear the future calling

Screaming right out loud

 

There ain’t no better way, to wake up and start your day

Then with a simple song of praise

With all that there is to do, and all that we’re going through

We need to live and walk by faith

Live by grace and walk by faith

 

Love Is Sacrifice

It’s taken me a long time

To understand the truth

I was blinded by the vision

And passion of my youth

 

But now at last I realize

I can finally see

What it means, really means

To love………

 

It’s not a bed of roses

Every morning, noon and night

It’s not an endless romance

With no struggle, without strife

 

It’s more then hearts and flowers

Or laughter in the rain

It’s giving all you’ve got

Then giving more again

 

Love is sacrifice

Sacrifice is love

Love is sacrifice

In the purest form

 

It’s nothing like the young hearts dream

In storybooks of fantasy

Where princes come and every girl

Fits cinderella’s shoe

 

If feelings only mean so much

It leaves the choices up to us

The beauty’s in surrender

It’s the hardest thing to do

 

Love is sacrifice

Sacrifice is love

Love is sacrifice

In the purest form

Love is sacrifice

It’s not counting the cost

Love is sacrifice

It’s not who won, it’s not who lost

 

What can you do, what can you say

When illusions are gone

It’s always so hard

Cause we all seem to want our own way

A Glass Of Red And The Sunset

 

What’s the point of all the madness

Non-stop till you drop life

Top of the mountain, king of the hill

Proving yourself to no one

The world inside your head

Drivin’ the engine to the rat race, you can’t escape

Pulls you back in time and again

Pacino

 

Still somewhere inside your mind

 

You live for the time

A glass of red and the sunset

A wish that forever was

Just basking in the sun

Not a worry ‘bout the penny

In your pocket

A glass of red and the sunset

 

Is your life on automatic

 

What about it, are there too many ends

Loose in the wind

Trying to cash in on something

Where do your dreams lie

Do you know anymore

Are you stranded in time

Trapped in a cage of your creation

 

When always the simple things

 

Satisfy the need

A glass of red and the sunset

When the hallow realities

Of the lives we lead

Go and hide their ugly faces

A glass of red and the sunset

 

To ease your care and carry you away

 

Lose yourself behind the clouds and drift off into space

Breathe deep, feel the warmth of the sun

Breathe deep, there’s only so much time

Breathe deep and smile

 

 

Beyond Forever

Running in a circle

Going nowhere fast

Busy being busy

Tell me how long can this last

 

People living vacant lives

Broken souls and empty eyes

There’s so much more to life

 

Let’s fly away

Somewhere beyond forever

To our secret place

A paradise where we can hide away

This is our time

Until the blue skies melt into the sea

Come fly with me….lets fly

 

There’s a new horizon

Calling out to us

Only we can see it   (baby can’t you see it)

Haven’t we both had enough

 

People living lonely lives

Broken dreams, believing lies

We’ll leave it all behind

 

Let’s fly away

Somewhere beyond forever

To our secret place

A paradise where we can hide away

This is our time

Until the blue skies melt into the sea

Come fly with me….lets fly….Somewhere beyond forever

 

 

It's Her Wedding Day

I talked to her on the phone last night

You could hear the excitement in her voice

Not an ounce of trepedaton

She’s clearly made her choice

 

And I know no man’s perfect

And I know that it’s time

Still letting go’s not easy

When you’ve held her all her life

 

Now the big day’s upon us

I’ll be giving her away

And everybody’s buzzin’

Cause it’s her wedding day

After so much preparation

The date, the place, the wine

 

It’s a first class celebration

To kiss my little girl goodbye

 

So old man time make your change

I’m ready and I’m not

I’m happy cause she’s happy, I guess,

Can’t interpret my own heart

 

And I know no man’s perfect

But she’ll be the perfect wife

I give them both my blessing

As the father of the bride

 

Now the big day’s upon us

I’m giving her away

Before god and all his angels

On this her wedding day

For the holy occasion

This date, this place in time

 

It’s a first class celebration

For this grown up girl of mine

 

And we’ll dance our dance

And cry a million tears

Of joy for all the years

And we’ll dance our dance

With all the memories

All the memories

She’s walkin’ down the aisle

 

Turn Me On/Off The Hook

Take me to that place

Of knowing you completely

Wrap me in the exhale of surrender

Too much time has passed

Between now and I remember

My body cry is restless

I hunger for your touch

 

Here today, tonight feels like long distance

Pretending not to notice

Won’t satisfy me now

Ain’t no way, this chance will go mistaken

Let’s make it like the first time

When you and I were young

 

Take the phone off the hook

Shut down the TV

Take a little time

Let me turn you on baby

Put down that book

Do how you do me

You know what I like

You still turn me on……turn me on

 

Life eats up our time

And leaves us feelin’ frozen

Til love becomes the stranger in the darkness

Subtle is the way

That leads us into danger

Pours water on the fire

Of our emotion

 

Here today, I can’t wait to taste the sweetness

My heart is beating faster

My mind is running wild

All the way, from here into forever

Let’s make it like the last time

We’ll ever be as one

 

Nice and slow, not too fast

High and low, make it last

One on one, take you there

Make it all go away, like we just don’t care

 

 

The Sweetest Thing

It’s a chilly night come closer to me

Lets snuggle up make it warm inside

Don’t you love it when it feels this way

When autumn comes and the season changes

It’s the sweetest thing

Feelin’ nature sing

 

There ain’t another place I’d rather be

Then lynin’ here with you beneath the sheets

 

And I know it sounds crazy

But it’s the simple pleasures life can bring

Where we find a deeper meaning

The moments that we share on a night like this

 

The summer came and left us weary

We soaked it up for all it had to give

Now we’re wrapped up in each others arms

And all the worries of the world are gone

A million miles away

It’s the sweetest thing

 

I wish I never had to let you go

Just live forever in the afterglow

 

And I know it sounds crazy

But it’s the simple pleasures life can bring

Where we find a deeper meaning

The moments that we share on a night like this

 

The days roll on like rivers

Flowing to the sea of time

Driven by the things that we desire

We’ve got to stop, take a breath

If only for remembering

Before we turn around and life has passed us by

 

It’s a chilly night come closer baby

Let me feel your body touching mine

 

There ain’t another place I’d rather be

Then lynin’ here with you beneath the sheets

It’s the sweetest thing

Feelin’ nature sing

It’s the sweetest thing

Rainy Day Soul

 

Walkin’ through shadows

Cursin’ the dark

Prayin’ for answers

Talkin’ to god

 

Searchin’ out the spirit to reveal

Truth beyond the realm of what you feel

A deeper understanding in the heart

On a journey to discover who you are

On the journey to discover …

Rainy day soul … rainy day soul

Wings of a butterfly … colors of a rainbow

Rainy day soul … rainy day soul

You know who you are … it’s written on your heart … you know who you are

 

Climbin’ the mountains

Reachin’ for the sky

Wrestling old demons

One fear at a time

 

Struggling for the will to still believe

Truth beyond the world of what you see

Following the dream inside your heart

On a journey to discover who you are

On the journey to discover

 

Rainy day soul …. rainy day soul

Wings of a butterfly … colors of a rainbow

Rainy day soul … rainy day soul

You know who you are … it’s written on your heart … you know who you are

 

There’s a hollow place in all of us

That longs for the spirit of god

With a child like faith believing

If he be for us who be against us

If he be for us who be against us

Get Serious

 

Been playin’ at this game so long

No wonder I’m so tired

If I knew what else to do

I swear i think I’d try it

Who knows how I got so right

Maybe I always was

But now Mr. I’m responsible

Is killing off his own buzz

 

How can you satisfy anyone else

If you don’t satisfy yourself

 

Life is short

Get serious

Time goes by like wind

Don’t be bored

Get serious

Maybe you gotta be selfish

Maybe you gotta act nuts

If they want let them call you crazy

That’s what the genius does

Get serious

 

Have I lied and pretended

Just to keep up with my charade

When really underneath it all

All there ever was is afraid

Maybe I’m just too damn lazy

My energy’s on low

Chock full of poor excuses

For why my clock’s been running slow

 

How can you get where you wanna go

When you let everybody tell you no

 

Life is short

Get serious

Time goes by like wind

Don’t get lost

Get serious

Maybe gotta go to the mountain

The desert, basement or beach

Anywhere in the world to hide yourself

From reality and its reach

Get serious

 

Anybody who wants what they want

Gotta do what they gotta do

Don’t put off till tomorrow

What you should have done yesterday

You play yourself for the fool

Get serious

The Amazing Amanda Grace

.

 

She was born during the heat of summer

In the year of eighty-two

With the eyes of an angel

And the soul of one who could look through you

 

At first she was quiet in the shadows

But quickly came into her own light

And from the time she started talking

Let you know she knew her own mind

 

She’s a girl of awesome wonder

A godly mix of beauty and brain

The perfect blend of strength and sweetness

The amazing Amanda grace

 

The youngest child, she’s like no other

The sharpest wit and the quickest tongue

A tender heart full of compassion

That who she’s been, ever since day one

 

She’s a girl of awesome wonder

A godly mix of beauty and brains

The perfect blend of strength and sweetness

She’s the amazing Amanda grace

 

And oh, just like the wind

She’ll take you in, spin you around

And keeps you guessing

And even though you think you do

You never know what’s on the way

Or where she’s heading

So close your eyes and hold on tight

 

She’s got a depth of understanding

Make you laugh out loud then can make you cry

She’s the gift that keeps on giving

All wrapped up in a bundle of surprise

 

She’s a girl of awesome wonder

A godly mix of beauty and brains

The perfect blend of strength and sweetness

She’s the amazing Amanda grace

The amazing Amanda grace
