Waitin For It

Waitin by the side of the road - Waitin For salvation to come - And lighten my load....

Waiting for the frost to turn - To a warm summer breeze...

Now I know - It's all coming clear, I'm waiting on you ....To cleanse my soul

Only you alone - Can stop my being afraid

Somehow my soul rolls down - To the dark dark side

It happens every night - About a quarter to nine.

Waiting for my ship - To come on in quick - Rollin' high tide 

Should bring it in fine - Waiting for the change to come - Still Guided by this light of Love

Waitin' for the train to bring itself in - To the station and let me on in

Cuz  I'm ready for it - Yea I'm waitin for it

Somehow my soul - Rolls down to the dark dark side

It happens every night - About a quarter to nine.

BRIDGE

All these nights - Appear so quiet

And I wil try - Try not to fight it

Oh peace of mind - Yea I'm Longing for it Tonight

Or just any old time

Yea...Yea...Yea 2x

WooHoo

Saw You There

Now I'm a quiet man by trade...Some mistakes, There's no shame...May I ask you?   Meet at the corner coffee shop...Sit and talk, have a walk...We can do just 'bout anything...I'd like to know your dreams...As fast as it may seem...May I tell you...I need to be more clear...You're the girl that I revere...And I want to know everything...

When I saw you there...With your long brown hair...You're like a movie star...Yea, I saw you there...Looking so debonair...And Smart...

For a taste of romance...Roll the dice on the chance...That I'm a sure thing...I'm running around like I'm undercover...Praying that you'll soon discover...And see me standing here...

When I saw you there...With your curly hair...You were looking swell...I saw you there...Without a single care...Oh I must confess...

I want to be near you...I want to be the one to feel you...I need to be the one who greets you ...You're the girl that I want to make things right...

I want to be with you...Be the one who gets the chance to feel you...Dreams come true when you see them through...I just want to make love to you...

Oh, Yea yea yea yea, Oh oh oh oh 4x

When I saw you there...With your gold blond hair...You're like the morning sun...Yea I saw you there...With not a single care...How the world keeps fussing around...I see you there...With your cute red hair...You were feeling alright...Excuse me dear...Would you say would you dare...Be the girl for me tonight.

Changed

This song reflects my acceptance to the foolish ways I have acted on occasion and the attempts to fix or change these ways continues each day...Peace & Word

CHANGED:

Been a many year...And it's clear...That a lot with me...Needs to change...Been a little distant...And it's fair to say I seem... A little strange...

But what's done is done, yea....I can't undo it, no...But I aim to make things right...So open the door...Let me walk on through it...I've changed....Yea, baby I've changed...

Done all my hanging round midnight...Tasted everything from A to Z...I know that none of this sounds right...Keep this tween you and me...

But what's done is done, yea....I can't undo it, no...Took a chance on a-many night...I knocked on the door...And I walked on through it...I've changed....Yea, baby I've changed...

Can't worry bout some other's say...I'm making my stride day by day...And I'm here to mend the ways led astray...Yes, I'm here to make up all days gone away, Yes' i'm here to pardon...Them foolish words I'd Say, Say, Say...Yea, baby I've changed...

Say hey, what do you say...Gonna give it one more try...Fresh start with all my heart...Till the day yea, oh that day I die...Can't make the past disappear...Make my heart feel good, good again...Now I know that precious time, Is so delicate...Like a first-born child...And I've changed...Yea, Baby I've changed...Here to mend my ways!

 

 

Starry Night

Starry Night

Nick Sample/ Julian Coryell

I can't see far when I look out my window....I can only see one step ahead....All this commotion That's happening around me.....Makes me think that I'm better off in bed

So tonight, When I look out my window.... I will try....To Dream about you.....

Starry Night, Shine So Bright....Yes, I will dream about you....Every Night, You're the one....That I See.... Like Your Eyes, They shine so bright.... Yes I will dream about you....In my mind,  I can see you.....Over and Over again.

I don't remember the things that you told me....I just remember the words that you said, It doesn't matter,  If you're not here to hold me.....I'll just imagine the good times we shared.

So tonight, When you look out your window.....Please Do Try....To dream about me, For I will dream about you....

Starry Night, Shine So Bright....Yes, I will dream about you....Every Night, You're the one....That I See....Like Your Eyes, They shine so bright....Yes I will dream about you....In my mind.....I can feel you, All Over My Body Again....All Over My Body Again.

 

Ask Me For Silence

Lord Help Her Now...Mmm Hmm, She Done Lost The Sound, Within Her Voice.  Constant Praying, Wishing, Hoping To Miss. The Violence That Awaits Her, When She Comes Home....Mmm Hmm.....I Hear Her Asking For

Silence!  I Know It Seems A Little Bit Childish, But Please Lord, Wipe Away This Face Of Fear. The Sound Of Silence Will Prove That You Are Here.

Lord Help Her Now...Mmm Hmm, Her Heart Is Nearly Stone...Holds What Life Is Left.  All The Pain And Shame, She Tries To Defend....Whats Left Of Herself, Her Body And Control....Mmm Hmm.....I Hear Her Asking For

Silence!  I Know It Seems A Little Bit Childish, But Please Lord, Wipe Away This Face Of Fear. The Sound Of Silence Will Prove That You Are Here.

Oh, No More Violence...I'm Simply Asking For True Silence...Oh Please Lord Wipe Away This Face Of Fear...The Sound Of Silence Will Prove That You Are Here.

I Know It Sounds A Little Bit Childish

I've Given All There Is For Me To Give

The Sound Of Silence Will Be MY One True Heart GIft....

 

Souly The Other

I'm The Secret Admirer, That Sends All The Flowers To You....Like A Box Of Chocolates Anonymous Lovers Would Send To You....I Don't Want To Be Another Gentleman Caller. I Simply Want To Hold Your Hand....I'm Not Just Another, I'm Souly The Other, In Love With You....

A Night In Paris, On A Moonlight Terrace, A Taste Of Champagne, And We Fly Home On A Jet Plane....The Rendezvous, Auf Wiedersehen!!!!

I'm The One Who Writes The Letters, Discreet Love Letters To You....Like A Dozen Roses, The Boys From The Office Would Send To You....I Don't Want To Make A Promise You Can't Handle. I Simply Want You To Understand....I'm Not Just Another, I'm Souly The Other, In Love....With.....You.....

New York City, Where The Night Shines Bright....We Can Dance Till Morning, And I'll Watch The Sunrise In Your Eyes....Hold Your Hand One Final Time....

When Something Just Feels Right

When Something Just Feels Right

When something just feels right, It a be a crime - just to get it wrong.  And not make it last all night,  We can make it last, all night long.....Tonight your mine....Just a hour or two, its up to you,  Please don't get me wrong....No need to fight,  What you can't deny,  Or you'll be left there, on your own.

When something just feels right ,  Please don't look, Away When your in my arms.....All night , Tonight.

I know this feels right , First I need to do it right... So I won't get it wrong,   Well it might serve, To tell yourself,  if you don't care....Just get on up and be righteous,  But I still wanna be your friend.   Been living alone, for so long,  Can't imagine any other way, Been waitin for you, to come along, Sure enough, you done made my day. 

I know.. It just feels right,  Please don't look away,  While i'm in your arms....All night.

We can chase those blues away,  We don't have to wake up, all alone.....You better savor every second That we have together,  In a moment it could all be gone.... Or You'll be left in the dark,  Just left there sayin.....How did I get this wrong

But it just feels right,  it feels so right, I don't care,  If we get it wrong....We can try it again  & play that same old song.

Come on up - & See if you get it.... I know you ... you know you need it.

Why can't you see,  Just  what I'm giving.... I'm telling you - I guarantee it.

I keep on wondering - If you can feel it,  I'm telling you - That this what I'm meaning.

Step on up - Right up here......Come on baby lets face those fear 

 It just feels right,    The way you look at me .....While I'm in your arms

D'Marvelous - Lyrics

D'Marvelous

Marvelous is the word,  The way I describe this girl,  She's oh so,  Wonderful in her own way,  And, Everytime, That girl pop's in my mind, I thank her....Yea Yea Yea Yea

The Passage in time with her, Makes the heart grow fonder, The years of the party, The hours laid beside me, Tuned up in every way, I like the way her hips done sway, She makes me, Forget my troubles, And now you see......

She's Marvelous...So Marvelous...D' Marvelous...The girl is just So Marvelous

I think I'll marry in time, Put her hand in mine...The Faith of , My Commitment....I'm Standing here with pride, And a smile she can't deny....No No No No

Folks now cant' you see, That girl put a spell on my, And I'm anxious....To put my arms around her now....

She's Marvelous...So Marvelous...D' Marvelous...The girl is just So Marvelous

Rain/ Sorrow - Lyrics

I've seen the Rivers dry, Swallowed by land....Birds stopped their singing,  on the Banks of the River sand...Trees come tumbling down, by the Hand of Man...Green keeps on Vanishing from our Mother, Mother Land....The roads are crumbling, cause there...is no Tax...Folks keep on sayin' That's just a matter of fact...

This is what I tell them

Let the Rain...Clear the Soul...All the Sorrow, will be left no more....And when the Rain...Clears your Soul...All your Sorrow will be gone once more....

Father sighs n cryin'...He can hardly pay the rent...Mama tells her Daughter to keep up the family strength... The role of injustice comes so hard to understand...Two birds come singing, to explain the master plan...

This is what they said

Let the rain...Clear the soul...All the sorrow, will be left no more....And when the Rain...Clears your soul...All your sorrow will be gone once more....
