TELL ME

Let’s meet face to face

Let’s meet eye to eye

Let’s meet heart to heart

Let’s met lips to lips

Tell me

Tell me something for once in my life that is true

Tell me

Tell me the words that I long to hear

Tell me

Tell me the words, “I love you”

Tell me

If I ask you

Tell me that you do

Let’s set a plan together

Let’s set a course of action

Let’s steer this ship

Let us come together

Tell me

Tell me something for once in my life that is true

Tell me

Tell me the words that I long to hear

Tell me

Tell me the words, “I love you”

Tell me

If I ask you

Tell me that you do

So take my hand

And lean on me

You have my heart

I’ll hold my breath

Tell me

Tell me something for once in my life that is true

Tell me

Tell me the words that I long to hear

Tell me

Tell me the words, “I love you”

Tell me

If I ask you

Tell me that you do

Nothing’s as easy as it seems

But tell me anything

Tell me everything

Your heart desires

Tell me

Tell me something for once in my life that is true

Tell me

Tell me the words that I long to hear

Tell me

Tell me the words, “I love you”

Tell me

If I ask you

Tell me that you do

Tell me that you do

When I ask

Tell me

“I love you”

Tell me

You do

DARLING

Darling

I’ve been waiting

Waiting here

And it was raining

Raining here

But the rain has passed

And all I can see

Is the sunlight

Coming through

Darling

Don’t keep me waiting

Waiting here

Cause you make the clouds

Disappear

Disappear

Darling

You make the clouds disappear

Darling

I’ve lived and died on hopes and fear

My hopes and fear

But darling

Now I see it so clear

Darling

You make it so clear

Darling dear

I recognize this meadow now

It used to be a battlefield

For the passionate lovers

Who fought for what they dreamed of

And sowed the seeds

That is the flowers

That’s become a memorial

To love

And all who loved

And I stand

Darling

I stand in the middle of it

And darling

Follow your heart

Follow your heart

And count the beats

That are the footsteps

That lead to me

Lead to me

Waiting

Waiting for you darling

Darling darling

MY DEAR

The smell on your neck

The way you style your hair

Your smooth skin across your shoulders

Oh how I want to hold you

The blank stare you give me

When I crack a stupid joke

You’re interruption perfectly timed

When I start to say something stupid

Don’t think I don’t notice

Just give me that smile

That I can see when your head is down

Oh how I just want to hold you

Woman

I can hear your heartbeat

From across the room

Woman

I can hear your mind

When you think

But woman

It isn’t very hard

When all I need is your embrace

And maybe a little kiss

For reassurance

If you wonder what I do

When you’re not around

I’m just wondering

What you’re doing too.

But when we meet

I float on air

And gravitate right to your arms

Oh how I want your hug

Nothing in my days

Means more to me

Than my time spent with you

And that’s what keeps me warm

Woman

I could never resist

Responding to your smile

Even in silence

Words for you

My lady

Just don’t even exist

But woman

I don’t need to talk

Very much

If the feeling is understood

Woman

I just want to hold you

And remember these moments

Of our hearts pressed together

And talking to each other

My dear

I really don’t ask for much

THIS IS CHRISTMAS (WITH YOU)

Sprawled out on a white fluffy rug

The fireplace is crackling

Eskimo kisses under mistletoe

Unwrapping gifts of love

As the radio plays on

This is Christmas

With you

Baking cookies and sharing wine

Decorating the tree

While herding the cats

Rushing out the door

To make one last snow angel for the night

This is Christmas

With you

We can have Christmas with or without snow

We can have Christmas anytime of the year

But this one is special

As you know

This is Christmas

With you

Waking up wrapped in your arms

And a cup of coffee that tastes extra great today

Candles still flicker with the smell of cinnamon and pine

Long lingering smiles that is yours and mine

This is Christmas

With you

This is Christmas

With you

I WANNA BE YOUR SANTA

No one ever listened

To what you said or thought

But tell me all your secrets

Tell me what you want

Tell me all you desire

Share all your wild wishes

Let me start a fire

And cross some things off your list

It’s no secret

I want to be your Santa

You won’t regret it

Let me be your Santa

Tell me if you’ve been good or bad

If you just let it go

Maybe you won’t be mad

If you just whisper and let me know

I wanta be your Santa

Ring ring ring

Ding ding ding

Sing sing sing

I wanna be your Santa

Maybe you don’t believe me

And what I could give to you

But you’ve worked so hard this year

I want to bring good cheer

Baby don’t let the cold

Get inside your heart

Forget what you been told

I know you’re way too smart

I wanta be your Santa

Ring ring ring

Ding ding ding

Sing sing sing

I wanna be your Santa

Christmas could come everyday

I’ll bring you good cheer

And listen to what you say

And hold it so dear

I wanta be your Santa

So, sing sing sing

Ding ding ding

Ring ring ring

Honey, I wanna be your Santa

Now is your chance

To speak to me

What would make you dance?

What would you like to see?

I wanta be your Santa

Ring ring ring

Ding ding ding

Sing sing sing

I wanna be your Santa

I wanna be your Santa

Sexy Santa

I wanna be your Santa

Sexy Santa

I wanna be your Santa

I wanna be your Santa

I wanna be your Santa

I wanna be your Santa

THIS IS LOVE

That one special heart

That makes all the difference

The one that holds the key to get in

That one that holds the matches

That causes the spark

That leads to the fire of passion

It’s that taste upon your breath

It’s where angels come home to rest

Adoringly beautiful

Amazingly beautiful

A natural beauty

Right down to the core

Let me be your rumor

Let me be your fantasy

I want to be the flavor

Of your Sun, sand, and sea

That one caring glance

Filled with love is all it takes

That one that pushes you

Into places you’ve never been

That one that walks beside you

And reminds you, you’re never alone

It’s that lingering feeling

That never goes away

Adoringly beautiful

Amazingly beautiful

A natural beauty

Right down to the core

Let me be all you think of

Let me be in your dreams

I want to be the voice

Stuck inside your head

Adoringly beautiful

Amazingly beautiful

A natural beauty

Right down to the core

This is love

THIS MORNING

Oh Lord

It’s in my hands

One way to go

Many paths to take

Oh Lord

It’s a long time coming

Fog is here

Shine a light on me

Oh Lord

Wash me of my past sins

And give me the strength

To build something good off of them

I will swim the sea

And climb the mountains

Over the valley

That was me

I will fly

For the first time in my life

If you can help me see

The strength that lies deep within me

Oh Lord

Resurrect me

Stand me tall upon my feet

And let me breathe again

Oh Lord

This heavy load upon my shoulders

The weight that causes my back to bend

I can feel it in my chest

Oh Lord

Like any day

The sun comes up

This morning
