MY LYRICS

Will You Love Me Tomorrow

I remember the day that we first met
We felt the passion burning from the start
We made love that first night, though I found it kind of strange You swore to me you’re not that kind of girl
We spent the weeks to follow, together every day
You said that you found that special man in me
When I think about it, I wonder if it’s true
Or maybe there is more than me and you
Will you love me tomorrow like you did yesterday
Will you love me tomorrow or will our love just fade away
I got this feeling I simply can’t explain
It’s there whenever I’m with you
Will I follow in the footsteps of the men that came before Or will I somehow break the chain
Will you love me tomorrow like you did yesterday
Will you love me tomorrow or will our love just fade away
I hope that I am more than just a passing phase I hope that you will see it too
But every time I look into your big brown eyes
I look to see if we are through

Wish I still had you

Oh my darling well I need you love, need your touch, I need your trust I need to have you baby by my side every day and every night
I need to feel the magic beating in my heart
I need to know that love won’t ever fall apart
I need to cherish you with every step you take
I need to honor you with every move you make I need to pray to God for all he’s given me
But darling most of all for what you mean to me
Through the years well our love lived on though my dear you had long since gone
I watched you baby though you never knew I watched you raise two kid aah baby how they grew
I wish that I could be there each and every day
I wish the love we shared had never gone away
I wish that I was there to raise our family
I wish the home we built we built with harmony
I wish the dreams we shared I wish they all came true But darling most of all I wish I still had you

With My Baby All Night Long

In the morning I sit around drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes
Looking out the window dreaming bout those young girls in their fancy flowered dress
But in the evening I’m with my baby all night long
Yeah in the afternoon well I just hang with my friends down at the old Maple Ridge pool hall
Yeah, laughing and telling jokes and just having a good old time, well you know
But in the evening I’m with my baby all night long
Just think about it there ain’t nothing better in the whole wide world
You see, I get my cake and I get to eat it with a glass of whole fat milk, yeah
And when the evening comes I’m with my baby all night long
Aah she’s my honey, best I’ve ever had, and she’s so pretty and never gets mad
Oh baby, I love you so, yeah
And when the evening comes we’ll  make love all night long, thank you little blue pill
To all you guys out there, I say live your life just like me
But you may ask yourself, well how can I live my life so luxuriously
The answers simple baby, my daddy was a super rich real estate magnate in New York City, yeah
Mmm, I love you so
Oh……  sweet honey I love you so
You see, I can spend my lifetime making love you to you all night long, Yeah

Memories Of Time

Left his home in Macon Georgia
And took a bus to who knows where
When he wakes up in the morning he’ll find
Just another day in the memories of time
Just another day in the memories of time

Worked the mills outside of Pittsburg
Drove a cab down old Broadway way
When he wakes up in the morning he’ll find
Just another day in the memories of time
Just another day in the memories of time

When you sit alone and close your eyes your memories surprise
And you think of what you’ve done  all the people and all the fun
And all the times that make you who you are
And all the love that came your way, it’s your lifetime parade

All the dinners and all the wine, conversation all the time
Life is what you learn to make of it
Have you ever realized just how much it means
To live today for yesterdays dreams

Biked the hills just north of Boston
Swam the length of Greenwood Lake
And when he wakes up in the morning he’ll find
Just another day in the memories of time
Just another day in the memories of time

When you sit alone and close your eyes your memories surprise
And you think of what you’ve done, all the people and all the fun
And all the times that make you who you are
And all the love that came your way, it’s your lifetime parade

All the dinners and all the wine, conversation all the time
Life is what you learn to make of it
Have you ever realized just how much it means

To live today for yesterday’s dreams
To live today for yesterday’s dreams
To live today for yesterday’s dreams

Hold On To Your Dreams

When you think about
Reasons you may doubt
When things don’t go your way
It’s just another day

And if you seem to wonder why
You always had to sacrifice
Hold on to your dreams
Believe in what you know is true
You’ll find the strength that within you
Hold on to your dreams

Life’s not always fair
S me may find despair
Behind the walls we build
Are lives left unfulfilled

And if you seem to wonder why
You always had to sacrifice
Hold on to you dreams
Believe in what you know it true
You’ll find the strength that within you
Hold on to your dreams

Other may seem happy when you look through colored glass
And all the things you think you missed are all just in the past
Live for the future and all life has to give
Live for the beauty and the loved ones that your with

Hold on to your dreams
Hold on to your dreams

Let yourself be free
Choose that way to be
Then you will realize
Your loving kind and wise

I’m In Love With You

First time I saw you I felt this burning deep inside
That special feeling that I just can’t hide
Oh, oh, oh baby, something tells me I’m in love with you

When your sunshine start fall my way
I feel there’s nothing I can’t do today
because baby, something tells me I’m in love with you

Monday morning come it comes to soon
Can’t wait till friday when I’m back in my arms with you
It sounds real silly but I can’t explain
Why I feel the way I feel oh baby yes your to blame

ooooooooo………I’m so in love with you

Instrumental

It’s all those simple things you do and say
That makes me feel that I act this way
Oh, oh, oh baby, something tells me I’m in love with you

Monday morning come it comes to soon
Can’t wait till friday when I’m back in my arms with you
It sounds real silly but I can’t explain
Why I fell the way I feel oh baby yes your to blame

ooooooooo………I’m so in love with you

Oh baby baby……… tell me what I should do

The way you look at me drives me wild
I can’t imagine I’d ever need to compromise
because baby, something tells me I’m in love with you

oh baby,something tells me I’m in love with you
Oh baby I’m so in love with you

Sometimes

Sometimes………sometimes

Sometimes you feel all the wonder in life
But sometimes you’re not really sure
You question the theory and it makes you so weary
You’re looking for proof that there’s really much more

Sometime……..sometimes

Sometimes you’re lonely with nothing to do
With no one to make life complete
So you take your computer and hope there’s a suitor
That’s waiting online for a man just like me.

You think about things all the time
And try to understand the mind
Of each and every person that you knew
And you write down each and every thought,
In hopes that you might just have caught
A line or two worth thinking of again
The band plays songs in honor of

The greatness that’s within us all
And marches to the beat of father time
And rainy days that mark that time
When ancient rulers towed the line
Just silly thoughts that never really end

Sometime………Sometimes

Sometimes you cry at the drop of a hat
And sometimes you’re tougher than nails
It’s not a decision but rather a mission
To manage each day by the way that you feel

Sometimes………Sometimes

Sometimes you’re sad that there’s pain in the world
And wonder why nothing gets done
Through all of the chatter it’s all just a matter
Of people that do what’s is best for their own

You think about things all the time
And try to understand the mind
Of each and every person that you knew
And you write down each and every thought,
In hopes that you might just have caught
A line or two worth thinking of again

The band plays songs in honor of
The greatness that’s within us all
And marches to the beat of father time
And rainy days that mark that time
When ancient rulers towed the line
Just silly thoughts that never really end
Sometimes………sometimes

You’re The One

You’re the one I’ll love Forever
You’re the one that makes my dreams come true You’re the one that makes me quiver
Every time you walk into the room
And when you smile just like the sunshine It brightens up my day
And when we kiss just like the first time
I know that you’re the girl for me
And I know there ain’t nothing in this world That could change the way I feel
And I know deep in my heart
Our love will last forever more
You’re the one that makes my heart beat Just a little faster than it should
You’re the one I live my life for
Cause you’re the one that I adore
And I know there ain’t nothing in this world That could change the way I feel
And I know deep in my heart
Our love will last forever more
You’re the one I trust my life with
I know your love would see us through You’re the one that makes me happy Everyday that I’m with you.

A Love Song For You

Winter is coming, falls almost gone Sidewalks are dusted, lightly with snow People are running, out from the cold
And darling I’ll wait here, I love you so much Oh so much
And darling I need you, darling I care
I’d spend a whole lifetime, I’d spend it here
And darling to hold you, to touch your sweet lips To spend precious moments with you I’d give
To be with you always, to have your sweet love A lifetime together, our hearts will be one
And you’ll one my lover, like none that I’ve had My heart will be taken, there’s no turning back
And darling I need you, darling I care
I’d spend a whole lifetime, I’d spend it here
And darling to hold you, to touch your sweet lips To spend precious moments with you I’d give

It’s All Up To You

It’s five in the morning, time to start a new day
A working mans breakfast, two eggs three pancake and some pain
Four blocks to the subway, in a freezing driving rain
I can’t imagine why anyone would want to live this way
Got to keep the faith
Nothing stays the same
Hope your dreams come true
It’s all up to you
Just like your father, you learned to work with your hands
Skilled with a hammer a chisel, a saw and a plan
Proud American worker, you always thought they’d need you around
But the might of the dollar worth more than all our pride
Got to keep the faith
Nothing stays the same
Hope your dreams come true
It’s all up to you
And no one ever said you’d walk through life with ease
And you never thought that you would ask for anything
But now you struggle to survive
Life’s become a compromise

Our Own Way

When the morning fills the room
I wake up lying next to you
I feel the warmth deep inside

Hear you whisper in my ear
It’s half past six and I love you dear
It makes my day come alive
I watch you dress and make the bed
Prepare yourself for the day ahead
And always a smile on your face

Out the door and in the car
A day of work it’s just a job
But one you love just the same

Two and two it don’t make five
But you and I we come alive
Cause I love you, you love me
There’s nothing more is just simply that
You are that one in a million kind of gal
And when you look at me my heart starts to pound
You make my dreams come true each and every day
You’re the one I’ll spend my life with I can’t see any other way
Now it my not seem like much to some
But it’s all about the one you love
The rest is frosting on the cake

And someday when our time has come
We’ll look back on the things we’ve done
And know we did it our own way

Two and two it don’t make five
But you and I we come alive
Cause I love you, you love me
There’s nothing more is just simply that
You are that one in a million kind of gal
And when you look at me my heart starts to pound
You make my dreams come true each and every day
You’re the one I’ll spend my life with I can’t see any other way

Don’t Know What’s Going Through My Mind

Sometimes I feel this way
Mixed up and out of place
Don’t know what’s going through my mind
So I sit around and talk all night
With friend of mine I barely like
Don’t know what’s going through my mind

Don’t know where I’m going
And I’m not sure where I’ve been
I’ve seen the light a thousand times before
And every time I realize I’ve seen another sign
Don’t know what’s going through my mind

So I look out on the internet
For symptoms that I always get
Don’t know what’s going through my mind

Then one day it comes to me
Summoned by reality
Don’t know what’s going through my mind

Don’t know where I’m going
And I don’t know where I’ve been
I’ve seen the light a thousand times before
And every time I realize I’ve seen another sign
Don’t know what’s going through my mind

Same time tomorrow
I know I’ll feel the same
There ain’t nothing I can do or say to make it go away
Follow those voices every time
Don’t know what’s going through my mind

Money

Forty Five and out of shape, but always seems to have a date
Not too tall, with thinning hair, but he’s a ladies man
Tiny feet if you get my drift, but that not why they call him Mr. Swift
He’s not even wise, its all about the wallet size
And I know it’s true, there ain’t nothing that a man with money he can’t do

Born with that silver spoon, Mama never made him clean his room
Went to all the finest schools, but daddy had to buy them a swimming pool
Law school hell who cares, never even past the bar exam
But now he’s the CEO, cause grandma went and died and left him boss
And I know it’s true, there ain’t nothing that a man with money he can’t do

Money money, money money money what money can’t buy…Can’t buy trust
Money money, money money money what money can’t buy…Can’t buy Joy
Money money, money money money what money can’t buy…Can’t buy love
Money money, money money money what money can’t buy

Can’t buy love indeed
Can’t buy heart felt memories
Can’t buy what’s inside
It’s up to you it’s just a ghost, you’ll never gona know what matters most

You ought to try a self-exam, look inside surprise my man
Do you really have a friend, or is it just pretend
You’re a middle aged spoiled brat, you’re a walking talking heart attack
Out each night with you’re entourage, boy its a losing cause
And I know it’s true, there ain’t nothing that a man with money he can’t do

Money money, money money money what money can’t buy…Can’t buy trust
Money money, money, money money what money can’t buy…Can’t buy joy
Money money, money, money money what money can’t buy…Can’t buy love
Money money, money, money money what money can’t buy

Can’t buy love indeed
Can’t buy heart felt memories
Can’t buy what’s inside
It’s up to you it’s just a ghost, you’ll never gona know what matters most

My Love

Think of all the things we always said that we would do
But never seemed to find the time, now time is almost through
All the places all the people and moments in between
All the mountains never climbed and sunsets never seen
The ancient ruins of the pharaoh’s and all the kings and queens
And all the sand on all the beaches where we’ve never been
And though at times I’ve missed those things there’s one thing
I must say
I’m glad I spent my life with you and that I’d never change
My love, Sweet love, my love, sweet love

Cause you’re the one that brings me joy, you make my life complete
And do it in such simple ways for that you are my queen
I revel in your loving touch, the person you’ve become
I can’t image anything as important as our love

With the time that we still have I’ll cherish every day
I’ll hold your hand and in my heart you’ll always stay that way
Cause I’ve come to realize just how lucky I have been
To spend my life with you my dear is all I’ve ever wished
My love, Sweet love, my love, sweet love

Cause you’re the one that brings me joy, you make my life complete
And do it in such simple ways for that you are my queen
I revel in your loving touch, the person you’ve become
I can’t image anything as important as our love

My Old Friend

Thank you for being my best friend, and always being there
Never ever question me, you accepted who I am
You always made me smile, even when I’m feeling down
You always knew the things to say, though you never spoke out loud
And you always were the lady, and I loved for the wonder in your heart

You always made me feel so warm, when we’d cuddle late at night
Watch TV and fall asleep, always felt so right
You’d wake up in the morning, always ready for the day
Never asked for anything but gave without restraint
And you always were the lady, and I loved for the wonder in your heart

And I know there comes a moment, a time in all of our lives
When we must say goodbye my friend, for the very last time
And slip away to darkness to a place a hope to see you come my time

Always be a part of me, I’ll never let that go
Through the years all the memories, you brought me so much joy
No one could replace you, you’re a once in a lifetime friend
I wish I could express through words, all the feeling that I have
And you always were the lady, and I loved for the wonder in your heart

And I know there comes a moment, a time in all of our lives
When we must say goodbye my friend, for the very last time
And slip away to darkness to a place a hope to see you come my time

Nothing we could do

I sit along at night and cry
We were so good you and I
I wonder where it all went wrong
Truth be told I’m not quite sure
We had our differences and more 2 But nothing that we couldn’t solve
But there was nothing in the world….. that we could do
Every time I think about
All the years we lived in doubt We never seemed to get it right
It wasn’t you it wasn’t me
We tried so hard to succeed
But in the end it wasn’t quite enough
And there was nothing in this world….. we could do
Sometimes love it just ain’t enough
No matter how we dealt the cards
We never dealt a royal flush
We never learned how to compromise
You had to have it your way, I had to have it mine
And there was nothing in this world….. we could do
Nothing We Could Do

Sometimes love it just ain’t enough
No matter how we dealt the cards
We never dealt a royal flush
We never learned how to compromise
You had to have it your way, I had to have it mine
Nothing we could do, oh nothing we could do Nothing we could do, oh nothing we could do Oh, oh, oh, nothing we could do
Nothing we could do, nothing we could do Nothing we could do, nothing we could do

Do It All For Loving You

Was it chance that we should meet
Or some cruel form of destiny
But since that day I’ve never been the same
I never really had a chance
You played the game with such finesse
You broke my heart before I ever knew
You challenged me with such intensity
Seduced me with your sexuality
I felt like I was yours for ever more
There’s only one thing left to say
You broke my heart in 50 ways
You’ve left me in a state of no return
I don’t know why I keep doing this
I’m really not a masochist
But something seems to drive me all the same
There’s something bout your personality
That I loose touch of reality
I don’t know why I do the things I do
You tied my hands behind my back
You broke my sprit that’s a fact
I wonder if it’s ever gona change
And beg like a dog asking for a bone
I just can’t stand being all alone
I got this fire deep inside of me
I don’t know why, I do what I do
I keep on crawling back to you
I don’t know why, I do what I do

So Much Love

I can see by the look in her eyes
She’s got something to say
She knows what she feels
And she feels what she wants
Something she just can’t explain

Cause she’s got so much a love for living
She wants to live each and every day
She’s got so much a love for giving
She gives it 24 hours a day

Bags are packed she’s ready to go
A dream that’s finally coming true
Just a road to be ridden
And times it’s forbidden
And there’s no one say what to do

Cause she’s got so much a love for living
She wants to live each and every day
She’s got so much a love for giving
She gives it 24 hours a day

And In the morning with the sunshine
Comes a new day and more
No one knows what will happen
No one will ever be sure

Some live for the money
And some are temped by fame
And some are just crazy
And others just lazy
To realize that no one’s to blame

But she’s got so much a love for living
She wants to live each and every day
And she’s got so much a love for giving
She gives it 24 hours a day

And in the morning with the sunshine
Comes a new day and more
No one knows what will happen
No one will ever be sure

She’s got so much a love for living
She wants to live each and every day
And she’s got so much a love for giving
She gives it 24 hours a day

Africa

Mountains of machinery, surround this little town
Priceless are the artifacts, that adorn the royal crown

Children up at dawn each day, a struggle to survive
And hope is just a word they say, to make the day go by

Mothers live in constant fear, can they make another day
Soldiers march with weapons drawn, to take their sons away

And daughters lose their innocence, as fathers watch and pray
And half a world away we watch, without a word to say.

What if the world, could all think as one
What is we all put down our guns
Then everyone everywhere, could live life in peace
And everyone everywhere could see the world as it should be

Armies built from ragged thieves, and boys yet in their teens
To fight a worthy war they say, but diamonds are their dream

No uniforms to mark their side, no one to set the rules
To take is just another word, for listening to fools

What if the world could all think as one
What is we all put down our guns
Then everyone everywhere, could live life in peace
And everyone everywhere could see the world as it should be
See the world as it should be

Love You Oh SO Much

Sometimes when you wake up in the morning and you’re feeling kind of low
There’s no way you’re gona make it through the day, you just kind of know

No matter how you feel
No matter what you think
There’s one constant in the world and that constant it is me

Cause I love you oh so much

We all have our ups and downs our good day and our bad
Something you just don’t know but your feeling kind of sad

No matter what may come
No matter how it goes
Remember there’s one thing I hope you’ll always know

That I love you oh so much

I love you in the morning
I love you each and every night
I love you when the sun don’t shine
I love with all my might
I love you just the way you are
I wouldn’t change a thing
I love you each and every way, every way there is

I love you oh so much

Can You Sleep At Night

When the lights go out at night and everyone’s in bed
Do you sit up late and think about the bad things that you did
Do you count the times you made men cry or the way you make them plead
Or all the homes that you destroyed through all your dirty deeds

Can you sleep at night
Can you sleep at night tonight

You like to think of love as just a means towards an end
And if there ain’t no profit then it just don’t make no sense
I know it must get lonely living only for yourself
I wondered how you do it but I you you’d never tell

Can you sleep at night
Can you sleep at night tonight

You say you keep on hearing voices burning in your brain
And every time you hear them you can swear you’ve gone insane
Well maybe they’re just giving clues you’ve long since beat the odds
Now it’s time to make a change before you loose it all

Can you sleep at night
Can you sleep at night tonight

I wonder when it happened when you lost that lovin way
Your father never trusted you and your mom she ran away
Through all the savage beatings and the woman you call aunt
I guess there can a time when there was no more you could stand

Can you sleep at night
Can you sleep at night tonight

You say you keep on hearing voices burning in your brain
And every time you hear them you can swear you’ve gone insane
Well maybe they’re just giving clues you’ve long since beat the odds
Now it’s time to make a change before you loose it all

Greatest Love

When our journey started way back when we lived life like there was no end
You said I was best man that you knew
But time has passed and things have changed but one thing that remains the same
You are the greatest love I’ve ever had
You are the greatest love I’ve ever had

I know that all we got to do is find a way to talk it through there’s nothing we can’t do it we try
And though we may not see things eye to eye does it really matter who is right
What matters most is honor love and truth
Cause loving you is all I want to do

Feel the love that surrounds us
Know it comes from deep within my heart
And though I may not always say it
With the thought of you we’re never far apart

We can choose to be a team and learn each other’s hopes and dreams
I promise you I’ll do my very best
And though it’s hard to understand they’ll be times I make you really mad
Remember that my love it’s always true
Cause loving you is all I want to do

Feel the love that surrounds us
Know it comes from deep within my heart
And though I may not always say it
With the thought of you we’re never far apart

Try Your Best

Try you best it’s all I ever asked for try and you will see
The darkest hours are always right before the moment of the truth

Don’t wait cause life’s too short to wonder how or why we’ll be
Don’t cry it never did no good to rain upon your cheeks

And in the morning or in the middle of the night time is always on our side
Don’t you worry cause it’s a never ending search you’ll find the truth is deep inside
You’ll find the truth is deep inside

Close your eyes and feel each breath of wonder closed so you can see
Rainy days were made for thinking through things let your mind be free

Don’t despair tomorrow brings new day sun will shine again
Just try your best it’s all I ever asked for try and you will see

And in the morning or in the middle of the night time is always on our side
Don’t you worry cause it’s a never ending search you’ll find the truth is deep inside
You’ll find the truth is deep inside
