STEALING MY HEART ( Boom boom boom )

My life is a blank canvas

Waiting for true love to pick the colors

My true feelings will be my brush

And you could be my subject, I see that blush

My life feels like blank pages

Waiting for inspiration

There’s a book to be sold

Hoping you could fill my story, a good one to be told

And you could be my muse

I just need a spark to light the fuse

Or maybe you’re not amused

For standing accused

Of stealing my heart

Please don’t split it apart

Boom boom boom

Boom boom boom

I got a song to sing

Hoping the words come out right

Just need you to set the tempo

And then I can play the right chords

I could sculpt the most beautiful thing

Our life will be the clay

You’ll see how beautiful it will be everyday

And all of the joy it will bring

And you could be my muse

I just need a spark to light the fuse

Or maybe you’re not amused

For standing accused

Of stealing my heart

Please don’t split it apart

Boom boom boom

Boom boom boom

Boom, there goes my heart

And it’s only just the start

Of all that is great

Think of all we could create

Like a loud boom

Please say yes soon

Boom boom boom

And you could be my muse

I just need a spark to light the fuse

Or maybe you’re not amused

For standing accused

Of stealing my heart

Please don’t split it apart

Boom boom boom

Boom boom boom

My love for you is as great

As an elephant in the room

I need you to address

I just want you to say yes

Boom boom boom

And you could be my muse

I just need a spark to light the fuse

Or maybe you’re not amused

For standing accused

Of stealing my heart

Please don’t split it apart

Boom boom boom

Boom boom boom

Boom boom boom

Boom boom boom

HARD FALL

She smiled and winked at me

And I knew this love was too good for me

When she walked right by my way

I was left speechless, not knowing what to say

Saccharine kisses so sweet

Greeting me when ever we meet

My friends were very concerned

When I threw out everything that I had learned

For this love, that was sent from heaven above

When this love makes it’s call

I’m in for a hard fall

I may know it

And I don’t care

I’m jumping anyway

No matter what they say

How could I be harmed

If I land in her love’s open arms?

And I don’t care

With a passionate love to share

She’s got a magic touch

A love like that doesn’t come around very much

I don’t care

I’m in for a hard fall

As long as this love doesn’t stall

I don’t need a parachute

A love so sickly cute

It’s my hard fall

I’m falling

I’m falling

And I’ll throw it all three sheets into the wind

For the love that my angel will send

And I’d do it all over again

I’m falling

I’m falling

Writing simple poems of love

Sending them to fly free on the backs of a dove

Leaving notes on mirrors in lipstick

Catches attention and that’s the trick

Marking the path home from work in rose petals

When you fall hard, wait and see where the dust settles

It’s a crazy love, a kind love,

It’s what I’ve dreamed of

Can’t you see, just be happy for me

When this love makes it’s call

I’m in for a hard fall

I may know it

And I don’t care

I’m jumping anyway

No matter what they say

How could I be harmed

If I land in her love’s open arms?

And I don’t care

With a passionate love to share

She’s got a magic touch

A love like that doesn’t come around very much

I don’t care

I’m in for a hard fall

As long as this love doesn’t hit a wall

I don’t need a parachute

A love so sickly cute

It’s my hard fall

It’s so sweet, it’s really neat

When I fall, I’ll want more

As long as she catches me before I hit the floor

It’ll be a hard fall

When love like this comes calling

I’ll be falling

Falling hard

It’s a hard fall

It’s a hard fall

RAINING FROM MY TEARS

Raining from my tears

And now your feelings changed gears

I shouldn’t have said what I said

I should have spoken up when I didn’t say anything at all

And now I fall

And now you’ve gone

I went from a king to a pawn

And I regret

And I’m all wet

It’s raining from my tears

I’m not perfect, I know

I just didn’t let my feelings show

Took you for granted

Now this moment I dread

As you walked out the door

And I fell to the floor

You’re not coming back anymore

And I’m all wet

Cause it’s raining my tears

And I’ll be crying for years

And I shouldn’t have said what I said

I should have said something when I didn’t say anything at all

And now I call

And since you’ve gone

I’ll cry from dusk to dawn

It’s what I get

Now I’m all wet

The rain from my tears

Raining from my tears

I’ll be crying for years

I shouldn’t have said what I said

I should have said something when I didn’t say anything at all

And now I fall

Since you’re gone

I cry from dusk to dawn

Letting you go, I regret

And I’m soaking wet

Cause it’s raining from my tears

Raining from my tears

Since you’re gone

I’m all wet

From the rain of my tears

The rain of my tears

You were right

And I wasn’t very bright

I thought I knew everything

But I didn’t know you and all the love that you bring

So I will admit

I could sometimes be a total shit

And now you’ve left

And I’m all wet

And all this pain

With the pouring rain

From my tears

This rain from my tears

I’ll be crying for years

I shouldn’t have said what I said

I should have said something when I didn’t say anything at all

And now I’ll fall

Since you’re gone

From dusk till dawn

I’ll regret

And I’m soaking wet

Cause it’s raining from my tears

Raining from my tears

Since you’re gone

I’m all wet

From the rain of my tears

The rain of my tears

WHEN LOVE MEANT SOMETHING

Two hearts beating in unison

A love formed from fusion

Exchanging the same glances

Over time slow dances

A gentle hand on a shoulder

A warm kiss when it got colder

Felt like something only an angel could bring

When love meant something

It meant everything

Casual conversations

Just a thought of each other brought deep sensations

Sharing sunny days

And thinking of new ways

To express a love so deep

A true treasure to keep

A special song to sing

When love meant something

It meant everything

When love meant something

I thought I’d stay awhile

When love meant something

As long as you’d flash a smile

When love meant something

It meant everything

But now your love has gone

And I don’t know what I did wrong

I thought my love meant something

I thought my love meant everything

And here I sit all alone

Waiting with my telephone

My only friend that won’t sing

Until you give it a ring

When love means something

Anything

I’ll stay awhile

Moving in and sharing space

Always wanting to see that beautiful face

Looking up at the sky

Daydreaming and making plans until we die

Making time for each other

Nothing is ever a bother

Treated like a Queen or a King

When love meant something

Love meant everything

Propping each other up

Drinking from the same cup

When love meant something

I thought I’d stay

When our love lit the way

It meant everything

But then you let me go

And now I don’t know

When love meant something

I thought I’d stay awhile

When love meant something

As long as you’d flash a smile

When love meant something

It meant everything

But now your love has gone

And I don’t know what I did wrong

I thought my love meant something

I thought my love meant everything

And here I sit all alone

Waiting with my telephone

My only friend that won’t sing

Until it gets a ring

When love means something

Anything

I think I’ll stay awhile

I think I’ll stay a while

When love means something

Love means everything

And I think I’ll stay awhile

It’ll turn around and I think it will be found

When love means something

When love means everything

I think I’ll stay awhile

I thought I’d stay for awhile

For love

For love

Love means something

Love means everything

I’ll stay awhile

I think I’ll stay for awhile

SILVER MOON

Silver Moon

Don’t go too soon

Let me rest

My best

Dreams on you

Silver Moon

Don’t go too soon

Let me lay

My hopes

Up for today

Silver Moon

Deliver my dreams

Home to me

Shine your light

For them to see

Silver Moon

I’ve been expecting you

Since the night

Was long

And the day was new

This night is perfect

It’s all right, it’s perfect

The skies are clear like glass

I can see the meteors as they pass

And wish on a star

That isn’t so far

From my dreams tonight

Under the light

Of the Silver Moon

The Silver Moon

Brighter than the stars

A Silver Moon

And Silver Moonbeams

I can climb

To reach my dreams

On the Silver Moon

Silver Moon

I’ll fall asleep

Under your glow

Not a peep

Just go slow

Silver Moon

Please return

All of my dreams to me

Whether they come

By air, land, or sea

Silver Moon

Cascading light

Let me sing

My best song

If only for tonight

Silver Moon

I can clearly see

A man in you

And how I wish

That man was me

This night is perfect

It’s all right, it’s perfect

The skies are clear like glass

I can see the meteors as they pass

And wish on a star

That isn’t so far

From my dreams tonight

Under the light

Of the Silver Moon

The Silver Moon

Brighter than the stars

A Silver Moon

And Silver Moonbeams

I can climb

To reach my dreams

On the Silver Moon

Silver Moon

Reflecting light

On all that is beautiful

That surrounds me

On this lovely night

Silver Moon

If I can dream

Can you see it?

Can you hear me?

Oh, can it come to be?

Silver Moon

Please don’t go until

I’ve had the chance

To see those moonbeams

Finish their dance

Silver Moon

I can close my eyes

And go to sleep

As I place my dreams

In the skies

This night is perfect

It’s all right, it’s perfect

The skies are clear like glass

I can see the meteors as they pass

And wish on a star

That isn’t so far

From my dreams tonight

Under the light

Of the Silver Moon

The Silver Moon

Brighter than the stars

A Silver Moon

And Silver Moonbeams

I can climb

To reach my dreams

On the Silver Moon

On the Silver Moon

LIFE

I am the air

That tickles your nose

Those sweet familiar smells

When we danced at the fair

I am the sea

That carries you away

To all those wonderful places

That you’d rather be

I am the brightest of stars

That lights the path to all of your dreams

As you listen to the sounds

Of the passing cars

I’m life

I’m all the reason to be

I’m life

I’m in everything you see

I’m life

The tiny spark that lives inside you

I’m life

I’ve done more than anyone could do

I’m life

Life

I’m the clouds in the sky

Passing by faster than your thoughts

Gone before you’ve forgotten

And you may never know why

I’m the sound of the breeze

You may not see me coming

But I’m strong enough

To bring a man to his knees

I am the rain and the snow

You can look up to me

And hear and feel

My presence you know

I’m life

I’m all the reason to be

I’m life

I’m in everything you see

I’m life

The tiny spark that lives inside you

I’m life

I’ve done more than anyone could do

I’m life

Life

I’m giving

I’m giving

To you

I gave you

I gave it all

To you

Life

I’m life

I’m all the reason to be

I’m life

I’m in everything you see

I’m life

The tiny spark that lives inside you

I’m life

I’ve done more than anyone could do

I’m life

Life

I am your family

And I am your friend

Please don’t take me for granted

Just be, just be happy

I’m old as time

And I last forever

I am energy

I am yours and you are mine

I’m life

I’m all the reason to be

I’m life

I’m in everything you see

I’m life

The tiny spark that lives inside you

I’m life

I’ve done more than anyone could do

I’m life

Life

Life

I am life

Life
