A Love Like Yours Too many times you've been broken down Your heart scattered like ashes in the air I won't tell you there is a better place Not when you're already there (Chorus) It's great to see you smile I love the way you look into his eyes It's great to see you so in love I hope someday I'll have a love like yours Yours is the shoulder that comforts all Supporting me as my world drops away You pick me up and watch me start again But now I get to witness your day I've seen such a change in you You seized the shadow and cast it to the sun Always a dream of a perfect life You took control and now it's begun
Don’t Fly Away I drove along a dusty road A road to anywhere I paused to take a breath and look around When I saw you lying there And those green towers from where you came They touched the sky Prostrate, you lie there silently I prayed don’t die And held you close to give you warmth I told your soul Don’t fly away We rode, propelled by unspoken hope To the haven of my home Fire burned brightly in the room To illuminate your bones Do you remember when you came around Heart beating loud And found my hand upon your head You made no sound But took some water and some bread I begged your soul Don’t fly away You stayed a day or two Or was it just a moment Gazing at the sky longingly Gave you so much strength You dusted down and flexed your wings I laughed so hard You raised your head and then raised a plea You grew so fast Spread your wings and took to the air I heard myself say Please don’t you fly away
It's Going To Rain I can see dawn breaking With the day the clouds close in And your sun has ceased to shine But I will hold you up and make you mine Always be mine Don't say a word, because it shows Your eyes tell all I need to know You're searching for another way Oh to be cleansed by the refreshing rain But there's no need for rain (chorus) I can take you far away from here A place where the weather will never change Come on, trust me and take me hand And fly away with me Because it's going to rain Wash away the grime but it remains Come with me and everything will change This accusing truth gives way To a promise of better days Much better days How much brighter the day's become There it is the evening sun Do not fear the failing light I will hold you throughout the night Hold you every night
Thank You 03:12
Thank You There's nowhere in this world That I'd rather be I've traveled to the place That all roads lead It had to be this way There's no other way this could be This could be (Chorus) I'm so happy to be with you There's nothing I wouldn't do There is only one thing left to say Thank you Thank you This is where I want to be Nowhere but here I'm not sure how I arrived My journey's unclear I've dreamed of this place This place has always been in my dreams In my dreams I now have place to rest Here in your arms The storm that brought me here Has left its calm I'm staying here with you With you is where I want to be Want to be
And Then There Was You And then there was you Greeting me like a long lost friend Open arms drawing me near We talked all night And laughed about so many things Like we'd known each other years (chorus) What can I say, it just feels so right I want to spend my time with you Never before has someone felt so right And then there was you And then there was us Showing you off, my newfound love I have never been so proud We walked all day Telling each other our hopes and dreams Things I'd never said out loud And then there was we Barely spending a moment apart Waking in each others arms We shared our lives Gazing at you like the first time we met You're in my eyes, you're in my heart
It's Not Right It’s not right for you to wait so long But you know That I'll be home soon I'm making time to get home to you Because I know You're waiting too (Chorus) But you need to know That I feel the same I will circle the globe Just to make the claim When I hold you tight Oh, I believe It's not right when I'm delayed at work I hope you know I'd rather be home I'm rushing back But the traffic resists 'Cos you know Just how slow it can be (bridge) When I'm in your arms I am home Never want for more Never in need of anything Your embrace gives it all Never want to leave I have never been so sure It's not right that our days are so full And we know We need time just for us But I find one hour with you Revives me Enough to go on
