TRUE LOVE ... A Wedding Song

When little girls read about Prince Charming
He's just a fairy tale fantasy
When young ladies sit in wait
Anticipating their first date
Thinking he's the answer to their dreams
~~*~~
The first touch and the first kiss
Butterflies and tender lips
They think they've got it figured out
Fairy tales torn apart
Lonely tears and broken hearts
That's what growing up is all about
~~*~~
Mmm...
Then comes true love
~~*~~
All the pain fades to the past
Once you find your other half
And know your dreams are coming true
Nothing said or done before
Matters to you anymore 
He's your future, he was meant for you
~~*~~
Before God above...
You vow your true love
~~*~~
On this Blessed, most perfect night
Profess to love him all your life
And he vows, to you, the very same
Joining hands, faced heart to heart
As your life together starts
The true dream, it begins today...
~~*~~
Before God above
You wed your true love
~~*~~

RIGHT NOW... A wedding song

I know right now you're thankful 
You're best friend stands by your side
And I know right now, you've never been so sure
They're the best part of your life

Right now you're walking on the clouds
You're blood's a river fast
Say your vows, and promise to 
Share of love that always lasts
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Let right now be the feelings
That you carry through your days
When things may get a little rough
And life brings with it...change
No matter what you do don't hurt
The one who believes your vows
Remember
Always remember
Right Now
~~*~~

I know right now you're praying
Thanking God that you're so blessed
And I know right now there will be times
He'll unfold to you his tests

I believe that there is nothing
You and he can't overcome
Right now, as you merge the two
Separate lives as one

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Let right now be the feelings
That you carry through your days
When things may get a little rough
And life brings with it...change
No matter what you do don't hurt
The one who believes your vows
Remember
Always remember
Right Now
~~*~~

MUSIC WAS GOOD

This little girl 
When she was born
Did not sit quiet
Did not conform
The only thing she understood
Was music
Yeah, music was good

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Played the rungs from in the crib
Snapped her fingers laying in her bed
Danced everywhere her feet did walk
Yeah, this little girl was born to rock
The best of her childhood....
Was music
Yeah, music was good
~~*~~

This little girl 
When she left home
Was young and lost
And quite alone
But running through her royal blood
Was music
And music was good

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
She called to it
It called to her
It defined her to the core
She didn't need
The fates to bleed
Her courage anymore
Rise above she would
With music
And her music was good
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Played the rungs from in the crib
Snapped her fingers laying in her bed
Danced everywhere her feet did walk
Yeah, this little girl was born to rock
The best of her childhood....
Was music
Yeah, music was good
~~*~~

LET THE TEARS FLOW

When your body's hurting
When memories are so vivid
They feel like the here and now

When all the tears you've fought 
Are tired of being held back
They'll cease to remember what's allowed

And they will flow...

~~~*Chorus*~~~
They'll relieve your hurting body
By the time that they are spent
The deepest sleep awaits you
You can heal if you relent
Tears are not a sign of weakness
But a cleansing way to grow
Something you will know
If you let them flow
~~*~~

Through pain, you cursed the whole world
Held it inside, damn the cost
Felt it was your right, yes you did

But things did not get better
And you finally realized
Bitter's not a way that you should live

It's no way to live

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
When you cage the right to grieve
Feel so angry you can't breathe
Refuse to sleep, so you won't dream
Become resentful, cold, and mean
There's a different way, you know
Do not fight them, let them go
Yeah... Oh Yeah...
Let the tears flow
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
They'll relieve your hurting body
By the time that they are spent
The deepest sleep awaits you
You can heal if you relent
Tears are not a sign of weakness
But a cleansing way to grow
Something you will know
If you let them flow
~~*~~

Let the tears flow

SILENT WALL

When did you leave me baby
Tell me, where did you go
When did you leave me baby
Why are you crying so

Lord, did someone hurt you
If so, can you tell me
Don't you love me anymore
Oh, baby tell me please

~~~*Chorus*~~
About to rock that boat you're sitting in
Shake it so hard you'll be forced to swim
Smash it up against the rocks
Rattle your heart, and spill your thoughts
Girl you'd better talk to me
Tell me
Tell me baby please
Where you've gone
And why did you leave
~~*~~

I've drawn you a nice warm bath
And I've laid out your clothes
You have to speak to someone
I can't fix you alone

There's no communication
Cause you won't talk at all
I'm tired of running into
Your silence, like a wall

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Is there a secret weapon 
That is needed to break through
Indifference, desperation, 
In this ghost that looks like you
Tell me how to find a way 
To erase the line You've drawn
When I don't know where to look
When I don't know where you've gone
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~
About to rock that boat you're sitting in
Shake it so hard you'll be forced to swim
Smash it up against the rocks
Rattle your heart, and spill your thoughts
Girl you'd better talk to me
Tell me
Tell me baby please
Where you've gone
And why did you leave
~~*~~

~~~*Finale*~~~
Baby, where have you gone
Girl just come back to me
Can't find you where you are
Oh, why did you leave
~~*~~

JUST A DREAM

Let the rain disguise my tears
The thunder mask the screams
I didn't need him anyway
He    was    just    a    dream

Winds tantalize my fingers
As they reach up for the sky
Release to it the reasons
I believed I had to cry
~~*~~
Now watch the sunrise
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The scarlet red's the blood I shed
But it won't last too long
When the sun is high, up in that sky
It means that I've moved on
I am free, so clean...
He was just a dream
~~*~~

White clouds gently drifting
Beckon to my weary being
They are just an illusion
Like his claims of love for me

Clouds can't hold my body
No longer blind, I finally see
Their mist is not substantial
Like him, they are just a dream

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Just a dream that I was living
Chasing every promise spoke
Stepped outside and called the forces
Raised my hands and let them go
Now it's time...
To watch the sunrise
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The scarlet red's the blood I shed
But it won't last too long
When the sun is high, up in that sky
It means that I've moved on
I am free, so clean...
He was just a dream
~~*~~
Ooh...
~~ Just a dream~~

KNOCK ON ANOTHER'S DOOR

I don't sit around, playing house
When life is happening right outside
And if you don't want to join me
I will not hang on you and cry

I won't call you every minute
 I don't need you to checking in
I'm your lover, not your Mother
Don't have to tell me where you've been

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I am not a fool for love
The mushy touchy feely thing that girls speak of
I'm not the kind of woman to lose my head
Think we can solve a problem
 with some time in bed
So if that's what you're looking for...
Knock on another's door
~~*~~

You do not have to share your past
Unless it pertains to me
For every detail left behind
Is right where it should be

But I must know I can trust you
No, deceit won't be ignored
Think about it, and if I can't
Knock on another's door

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
I don't play games like a little girl
You won't be the center of my whole word
I will respect you, yeah I'll treat you right
You'll know that you're loved each and every night
Now,  if you need something more...
Knock on another's door
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I am not a fool for love
The mushy touchy feely thing that girls speak of
I'm not the kind of woman to lose my head
Think we can solve a problem
 with some time in bed
So if that's what you're looking for...
Knock on another's door
~~*~~

IF I COULD

I keep hearing that it will get better
That it is always darkest with the night
Come the dawn, everything looks brighter
My will to live shall rally for the fight
You're telling me I am not alone here
There's always someone I just have to look
Don't you know that I've become too weary
I'd have already done so if I could

~~~*Chorus*~~~
If I could...
I would see the best of what is here
If I could
I wouldn't be lonely, so damned strangled
By my fears
I know I should..
I should see the beauty, please believe me 
I would... 
I would if I could
~~*~~

When you tell me I am being selfish
Not to say that I'm leaving you again
I know that you Love me and you'll miss me
But even that can't measure with this pain
You say that you don't understand me
I can't explain when I am just as blind
All I know is that to end this misery
I've got to go and leave this life behind

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
If I could wave a magic wand
Clean out the depths of me
I'd blow apart the desperation
And I'd set the laughter free
Right now everything that's wonderful and good...
Has escaped me
And  I would bring it back if I could
Oh...If I could
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
If I could...
I would see the best of what is here
If I could
I wouldn't be lonely, so damned strangled
 By my fears
I know I should..
I should see the beauty, please believe me 
I would... 
I would if  I could
~~*~~
