The Phoenix Rises

A PEACE Of My Mind!

EVERY DAY WHEN I GET UP

Everyday I get up

And I comb my hair and put my game face on

I bury all my hurt, sorrow, and disappointment

And put it in the past and do the best I can

Cause I know it’s a new day for me

And the reset button has been pushed

And I see you waiting at the end of the bridge for me

Everyday

Everyday when I get up

Everyday when I get up

I look forward to seeing you and all the possibilities

And I think of you and I think of me

And where we can be

Everyday when I get up

Everyday I get up

And I go to work

Knowing it’s just more than to survive and pay the rent

It’s to build a future that I see

That will warmly embrace you and me

Everyday when I get up

Everyday I get up

To live and love again

Smell every rose that I can find

With all the love and kindness that’s on my mind

Everyday

When I get up

And if you ever seem to feel neglected

I’m so sorry my mind is occupied

With bringing all the the things I hold so dear

To the forefront and hold them so near

And that means you, and it’s so true

I have so much to do

To make things so perfect for me and you

Everyday

When I get up

Everyday I get up

I look in the mirror

And reflect

About everyday

And days to come

And how each day can be better than the ones we know

Plant the seeds of love and watch them grow

Everyday

When I get up

TIVOLI GARDENS

I met up with her in Tivoli Gardens

In Copenhagen the city I love

We spent the day holding hands

Having lunch

People watching

Discussing love

In Tivoli Gardens

Something about her hair that day

Was it special for me?

And the Scandinavian sun

Cascading down her

She was so radiant that day

We walked the park

Occasionally stopping to kiss

When I looked in her eyes

I saw my smile

In Tivoli Gardens

We rode the Rutschebanen

Like a love

Up and down all around

Our hearts racing beating

Evening time gazing at each other

Under the lights

At Tivoli Gardens

Like our love

Those lights are still burning today

In Tivoli Gardens,

Copenhagen

Don’t go

Please stay

These flowers are for you

In Tivoli Gardens

Love waits for you

In Tivoli Gardens

THIS OLD GRAY HAIR

This old gray hair that I got

We’ve been through a lot

This old gray hair here

Seen quite a bit

This gray hair here

Taken some hits

We’ve become friends

On this long road and all of its bends

This old gray hair

I wear like a medal

A badge

It’s older and wiser than me

This old gray hair

This old gray hair

Has become such a part of me

This old gray hair

Helps me to see

And the older I get

The more the world comes around me

This old gray hair

Shows me all of the beauty

And then life and peace

Isn’t so foggy

It’s right there

Right in front of me

This old gray hair

Right here.

WE MUST DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

I don’t want another day to go by

Without seeing you

And it would be a terrible lie

If I said I didn’t miss you

It’s what I want but can’t get

And we must do something about it

Working so hard keeps me from you

And you’re on my mind

There’s something surely we must do

The time together we must find

Every little moment, every little bit

And we must do something about it

I love that flutter you put in my heart

That doesn’t go away when we’re apart

I just want you back in my arms

And we must do something about it

We must do something about it

THIS LITTLE ANGEL

I wanna tell you about my woman

This little angel

Angel of my dreams

She could have any man

This little angel

But she’s picked me, so it seems

This little angel

Waiting for another moment to shine

This little angel

Can’t be mine

This little angel

Shows me what heaven is

This little angel

Shows me what heaven is

This little angel

Shows me the moon, the sun, and the stars

This little angel

Takes me to Venus, the moon, and Mars

This little angel

Watches over me

And this little angel

Really loves me

Don’t wake me

Don’t wake me

If I’m dreaming

Don’t wake me

This little angel

Is here when I need her

This little angel

Keeps it all together

This little angel

Keeps me from feeling blue

This little angel

Is so real, so true

This little angel

My little angel

Don’t wake me

Don’t wake me

If I’m dreaming

Don’t wake me

I’ve never loved any other woman like this

I fall deeper in love with every kiss

Her laugh, her smile

She drives me wild

My sweet little angel

Don’t wake me

Don’t wake me

If I’m dreaming

Don’t wake me

This little angel

She brings out my best

This little angel

Is there when I rest

And this little angel

Is there when I get up

This little angel

Fills my cup

And this little angel

That I love to talk about

This little angel

Leaves no doubt

That this little angel

Is all mine

This little angel

She’s so kind, she’s so fine

Don’t wake me

Don’t wake me

Don’t wake me

Don’t wake me

Right outta this dream

Please don’t wake me

I CAN’T STOP LOVIN’ YOU NOW

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin you now

We have some great times together

And I told you I’d love you forever but lately sometimes things get a little rough

But I ain’t the type to walk away when times are tough

And if I can just get a little smile

That’ll keep me going a while

Just don’t give up on me yet

Cause I’ve never lost a bet on you

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin you now

I won’t stop giving

I won’t stop giving

I won’t stop giving up now

They say, when the going gets tough, the tough get going

Choppy seas means heavier rowing

Isn’t that what you saw in me?

One outcome from a thousand possibilities?

All those things you believed

When they came true, weren’t you relieved?

Through the thick and the thin

The only thing that stays on my face is a grin because

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin you now

I can’t stop believing

I can’t stop believing

I can’t stop believing it now

This road is long so take my hand

Hold on tight till we reach our island

It’s all within our reach

Soft sands, margaritas, palm trees, and lots of sunshine waiting for us on that beach

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin you now

I can’t stop thinking

I can’t stop thinking

I can’t stop thinking ‘bout us

Give it a little more time

A true love so divine

I’m not gonna give up on all that I gave

That’s the kinda love that one should save

Invested all my time in you

And I love all that you do

Ain’t gonna throw it away

You look to me and I’m just gonna say

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin you now

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin you now

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin’

I can’t stop lovin you now
