Carry Me 03:27
CARRY ME LYRICS I am here not quite body but full of soul just on my way to a new life of my own So I drift upon the waves in a hollow sea rolling with the tides wherever they carry me… CHORUS Carry me, Carry me to a world where I can see Hold me up unto the light Carry me, Carry me to a place where I can be The reflection in your eyes You are there, your heart gives you away… taking special care till that all-important day… When we meet you will know that I am yours… Just as I will know that you are mine. CHORUS Here we are and how the time went by The days are made of games and lullabies If I cry I know you’ll understand I need your hands CHORUS
3.
NOTHING LIKE A SONG I was on the road to Memphis With a hundred miles to go Hypnotized by spinnin’ tires I turned on the radio Station after station And nothing but bad news ‘till the King chimed in singin’ Blue Suede Shoes CHORUS There’s nothing like a song That cuts right to your soul There’s nothing like a song To fill an empty hole In a broken heart or make you start to dance or sing along There’s nothing Nothing like a song She was small town pretty And the flower of the ball n’ I just had to dance With the girl who had it all Closer and closer Beneath those dimming lights I couldn’t help but sing You look wonderful tonght CHORUS Nothing like a song It was no happy Sunday Saying goodbye to a friend When the congregation All together bowed their heads In the solemn silence Of that sacred holy place A hundred voices All joined in amazing grace CHORUS
4.
QUESTION FOR EINSTEIN If I could ride a beam of light across the universe Imagine how that would be I’d hit the speed limit never age another minute by special relativity That's what Einstein dreamt in a thought experiment To unlock the secrets of the stars But I wonder if he ever tried to endeavor To unlock the secrets__ of the heart CHORUS Dr. Einstein, the question I would ask If you were alive and I was sittin' in your class Of all the beauty in your mind And all you know of space and time What is love? You would give a grin and scratch your chin Run your fingers through that hair growing ever weary thinking of a theory greater than your mc squared You knew the power of the sun But what is that compared to the power shared when two hearts join as one? CHORUS You ran out of time before you could find The answer to all that is But I will keep on searchin’ to find the inertia behind a single kiss CHORUS
5.
Sal 04:58
SAL Sal was short for Salvatore he came with little more than a third grade education from Italian shores He was part of a generation looking for a better life a better life He was the janitor in my elementary school long before Maintenance Engineers were used No fool..he was cool like one of us yes he was CHORUS He made the windows shine And hauled the trash away Working overtime every single day He could do most anything In the gym he loved to sing Italian Opera You could see your reflection in the floor Thanks to Sal, short for Salvatore A simple man with a simple dream He spoke broken English, he could not write nor read How I laughed when he would say “Stay ina school, stay ina school.. ‘Cause he never had the chance to go when he was young He had to work while he was growing up This was his way to stay in school, stay in school So.. CHORUS He made the windows shine And hauled the trash away Working overtime Every single day He could do most anything He fixed a broken swing in the playground You could see your reflection in the floor Thanks to Sal, short for Salvatore One thing for sure is that time goes by I got promoted and went to Junior High A bigger school that had a crew of guys like Sal But not like Sal What’s he doing now? <instru> Finally came the day every school kid dreams about There I was in my cap and gown I looked around and after all these years I saw Sal, it was Sal In his Sunday shoes and best shirt and tie He wore his tassel on the same side as mine How he cried and said it’s true you can do what you put your mind to When you make the windows shine And haul the trash away Working overtime every single day You can do most anything He wore a class ring on his finger You could see your reflection in the floor Thanks to Sal, Short for Salvatore
6.
EVERYTHING HE SAYS Caught up with a friend in conversation Talkin’ ‘bout his new main squeeze I thought he skipped his medication Or caught some strange disease CHORUS Everything he says starts with she Every single word's about this girl of his dreams Ohh when his tongue gets tied There’s a reason why Everything he says (everything he says) starts with she___ she___ I thought it was just infatuation Like the rest it wouldn’t last But I was there at the reception when he raised his glass___ CHORUS Then I heard the news In a little pink bow in mary jane shoes how she’s got Daddy’s face she’s got Mommy’s grace ‘n her deep baby blues____ CHORUS
7.
A LITTLE FAITH Lost like a child In a forest after dark With only my own hand to hold Praying for a spark Every path turned to brush Every thorn had its day When a single firefly Lit up as if to say CHORUS Follow me...Follow me... I will guide you through the trees Follow me..Follow me Sometimes a little faith is all you need I stayed close behind Like a pied piper’s dream Past a fallen willow Up to a running stream Where by the water’s edge A moonbeam then appeared And shimmered on my shoulder As if to say I’m here CHORUS Soon familiar voices Echoed through the palms Friends around a campfire Where I had ventured from They all gathered ‘round Askin’ where I’d been I told them what I found And offered with a grin CHORUS Sometimes a little faith is all you need
8.
A FRIEND IN YOU You’ve been at my side through the hardest of times there when I needed you most The truest of blue and I offer to you This 'specially heartfelt toast We have a bond that keeps holding on Like some kind of cosmic glue I know as long as forever will last I have a friend in you CHORUS I have a friend in you you have a friend in me There’s nothing oh nothing I wouldn’t do for you Unconditionally We had ourselves a quarrel or two could have broken our friendship in half But the magic of us is not giving up Now we look back and laugh I think of the times you’re on my mind And the phone rings right on cue I know as long as forever will last I have a friend in you CHORUS A friend like you is family too That is what we’ve become We’ll never be too far apart Even when our time comes We’ll fly in the clouds and frolic about Like angel friends must do I know as long as forever will last I have a friend in you I have a friend in you
9.
THE CHRISTMAS TREE ON SALEM STREET There's a Christmas tree on Salem Street in the window for all to see Decorated and all lit up An angel flying high above CHORUS There’s something special about the Christmas tree in a midwest house Every gift is wrapped With a name attached Standin’ proud and tall For the one who gave his all People come for miles to see the Christmas Tree on Salem Street You can walk by any Summer night The only house with a tree so bright Ornaments hung with love so true Include a pair of baby shoes CHORUS In this small country town You find out if you ask around Their waitin’ for an only son Gone MIA________ in seventy-one CHORUS There's a Christmas tree on Salem Street

I America (free) 04:00
I AMERICA I was born on independence day July fourth They signed their lives away That I might form a more perfect union But I’m not perfect And never claimed to be My architects were men who believed in life, liberty and pursuit of happiness CHORUS I am a father I am a mother I am a neighbor I’m like no other I am a wise man I am a newborn child Oh, I am America! People came In any way they could on iron ships and dinghy’s made of wood ‘cause they believed In streets paved with gold But they learned By the hammer and the axe That what is earned On their broken backs Is worth more than I could ever give CHORUS I’ve been blessed By the almighty god But I can’t rest From those who want me gone Every day’s a test whether I will endure So I leave it up to you To stand and fight For all that you can lose And keep light In the harbour burning bright CHORUS Oh, I am America!
11.
EVEN WHEN SHE CRIES She’s got me right in the palm of her hands Speaks a language I don’t understand Doin’ all I can to get it right When her eyes stir like the sea Funny how it occurs to me She’s beautiful even when she cries CHORUS Even when she cries The music plays The dance goes on In the morning haze I spend my days to make her smile Even when she tries To say what’s wrong I just sing her Favorite song soon she’s gone back to her dreams She’s not too hard to please Sometimes a bottle is all she needs Soon she sleeps to a lullaby But when those clouds roll in I think to myself again She’s beautiful even when she cries CHORUS CHORUS Back to her dreams Back to her dreams
