Lovely To See You

From "On The Threshold Of A Dream"

A wonderful day for passing my way.

Knock and my door and even the score

With your eyes.

Lovely to see you again my friend.

Walk along with me to the next bend.

Dark cloud of fear is blowing away.

Now that you're hear, you're going to stay

'cause it's

Lovely to see you again my friend.

Walk along with me to the next bend.

Tells us what you've seen in faraway forgotten lands.

Where empires have turned back to sand.

Wonderful day for passing my way.

Knock and my door and even the score

With your eyes.

Lovely to see you again my friend.

Walk along with me to the next bend.

Ani Difranco - Not A Pretty Girl

I am not a pretty girl,

that is not what I do.

I ain't no damsel in distress,

and I don't need to be rescued.

So, so put me down punk.

Wouldn't you prefer a maiden fair?

Isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere?

I am not an angry girl,

but it seems like I've got everyone fooled.

Every time I say something they find hard to hear,

they chalk it up to my anger,

and never to their own fear.

Imagine you're a girl,

just trying to finally come clean,

knowing full well they'd prefer you were dirty...

and smiling.

And I am sorry,

but I am not a maiden fair,

and I am not a kitten, stuck up a tree somewhere.

Generally my generation

would never be caught dead working for the man.

And generally I agree with them,

trouble is you got to find yourself an alternate plan.

And I have earned my disallusionment,

I have been working

all of my life.

And I am a patriot.

I have been fighting the good fight.

And what if there are no damsels in distress?

What if I knew that, and I called your bluff?

Don't you think every kitten

figures out how to get down,

whether or not you ever show up?

I am not a pretty girl.

Don't really want to be a pretty girl.

Blessed

Martina McBride

I only have one child, instead of children, but if you count the cat as a child, this song is spot on.

I get kissed by the sun each morning

Put my feet on a hardwood floor

I get to hear my children laughing

Down the hall through the bedroom door

Sometimes I sit on my front porch swing

Just soaking up the day

I think to myself, I think to myself

This world is a beautiful place

I have been blessed

And I feel like I've found my way

I thank God for all I've been given

At the end of every day

I have been blessed

With so much more than I deserve

To be here with the ones that love me

To love them so much it hurts

I have been blessed

Across a crowded room

I know you know what I'm thinking

By the way I look at you

And when we're lying in the quiet

And no words have to be said

I think to myself, I think to myself

This love is a beautiful gift

I have been blessed

And I feel like I've found my way

I thank God for all I've been given

At the end of every day

I have been blessed

With so much more than I deserve

To be here with the ones that love me

To love them so much it hurts

I have been blessed

When I'm singing my kids to sleep

When I feel you holding me

I know

I have been blessed

And I feel like I've found my way

I thank God for all I've been given

At the end of every day

I have been blessed

With so much more than I deserve

To be here with the ones that love me

To love them so much it hurts

I have been blessed

Good Morning Good Morning

Good morning, good morning

Good morning, good morning

Good morning ah

Nothing to do to save his life call his wife in

Nothing to say but what a day how's your boy been

Nothing to do it's up to you

I've got nothing to say but it's OK

Good morning, good morning

Good morning, good morning

Good morning ah

Going to work don't want to go feeling low down

Heading for home you start to roam then you're in town

Everybody knows there's nothing doing

Everything is closed it's like a ruin

Everyone you see is half asleep

And you're on your own you're in the street

After a while you start to smile now you feel cool

Then you decide to take a walk by the old school

Nothing has changed it's still the same

I've got nothing to say but it's OK

Good morning, good morning

Good morning, good morning

Good morning ah

People running round it's five o'clock

Everywhere in town is getting dark

Everyone you see is full of life

It's time for tea and meet the wife

Somebody needs to know the time, glad that I'm here

Watching the skirts you start to flirt now you're in gear

Go to a show you hope she goes

I've got nothing to say but it's OK

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Good morning, good morning

Good...

Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground - Willie Nelson

If you had not have fallen

Then I would not have found you

Angel flying too close to the ground

And I patched up your broken wing

And hung around a while

Tried to keep your spirits up

While you were feelin' down

I knew someday that you would fly away

For love's the greatest healer to be found

So leave me if you need to

I will still remember

Angel flying too close to the ground

Fly on, fly on past the speed of sound

I'd rather see you up

Than see you down

Leave me if you need to

I will still remember

Angel flying too close to the ground

Eagles ~ I Can't Tell You Why

Look at us baby, up all night

Tearing our love apart

Arent we the same two people who live

Through years in the dark?

Ahh...

Every time I try to walk away

Something makes me turn around and stay

And I cant tell you why

When we get crazy,

It just aint to right,

(try to keep you head, little girl)

Girl, I get lonely, too

You dont have to worry

Just hold on tight

(dont get caught in your little world)

cause I love you

Nothings wrong as far as I can see

We make it harder than it has to be

And I cant tell you why

No, baby, I cant tell you why

I cant tell you why

No, no, baby, I cant tell you why

I cant tell you why

I cant tell you why

As Tears Go By - Marianne Faithfull

It is the evening of the day

I sit and watch the children play

Smiling faces I can see

But not for me

I sit and watch

As tears go by

My riches cant buy everything

I want to hear the children sing

All I hear is the sound

Of rain falling on the ground

I sit and watch

As tears go by

It is the evening of the day

I sit and watch the children play

Doin things I used to do

They think are new

I sit and watch

As tears go by

"I Slept With Someone In Fall Out Boy And All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me"

I found the cure to growing older

And you're the only place that feels like home

Just so you know, you'll never know

And some secrets weren't meant to be told

But I found the cure to growing older

I'm the first kid to write of hearts, lies, and friends

And I am sorry my conscience called in sick again

And I've got arrogance down to a science

Oh, and I'm the first kid to write of hearts, lies, and friends

[Chorus: x2]

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's

So fitting, so fitting of the way you are

You can't cover it up

Can't cover it up

Find a safe place, brace yourself, bite your lips

I'm sending your fingernails and empty bottles you've sipped

Back to your family cause I know you will be missed

So you can find a safe place, brace yourself

They call kids like us vicious and carved out of stone

But for what we've become, we just feel more alone

Always weigh what I've got against what I left

So progress report: I am missing you to death

[Chorus: x2]

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's

So fitting, so fitting of the way you are

You can't cover it up

Can't cover it up

Someone old

No one new

Feeling borrowed

Always blue

Someone old

No one new

Feeling borrowed

Always blue

Someone old

No one new

Feeling borrowed

Always blue

Someone old

No one new

Always borrowed

Always you

I found a cure to growing older

I found a cure to growing older

[Chorus: x2]

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's

So fitting, so fitting of the way you are

You can't cover it up

Can't cover it up

JACK JOHNSON

"Sitting, Waiting, Wishing"

Now I was sitting waiting wishing

That you believed in superstitions

Then maybe you'd see the signs

But Lord knows that this world is cruel

And I ain't the Lord, no I'm just a fool

Learning loving somebody don't make them love you

Must I always be waiting waiting on you?

Must I always be playing playing your fool?

I sing ya songs I dance a dance

I gave ya friends all a chance

Putting up with them wasn't worth never having you

And maybe you been through this before

But its my first time

So please ignore

The next few lines cause they're directed at you

I cant always be waiting waiting on you

I cant always be playing playing your fool

I keep playing your part

But its not my scene

Wont this plot not twist?

I've had enough mystery.

Keep building me up, then shooting me down

Well im already down

Just wait a minute

Just sitting waiting

Just wait a minute

Just sitting waiting

Well if I was in your position

Id put down all my ammunition

I'd wondered why'd it taken me so long

But Lord knows that I'm not you

And If I was I wouldn't be so cruel

Cause waiting on love ain't so easy to do

Must I always be waiting waiting on you?

Must I always be playing playing your fool?

No I cant always be waiting waiting on you

I cant always be playing playing your fool, foool

At Last ~ Etta James

At last, my love has come along,

My lonely days are over,

And life is like a song,

Ohhh at last

The stars above are blue

My heart was wrapped up in clover,

The night I looked at you

I found a dream that I could speak to,

A dream that I, can call my own,

I found a thrill, to press my cheek to,

A thrill that I, have never known,

Ohhh you smile, you smile

And then the spell was cast

And here we are in heaven,

For you are mine, at last!
