I’VE CHECKED OUT (I’LL COME AROUND)

I’ve checked out

I don’t care

And if you ever loved me

Then I’m unaware

I can’t feel

The pain has numbed me

So much

Just let me be

I’ve checked out

I don’t want

Any responsibility at all

I’m just not gonna answer the call

Still you talk and you talk

But I can’t hear

Yet you’re amazed at how far

I’ve gone

While standing so near

I am sorry

I just need some time alone

And you ask me how long?

I don’t really know

But this pain

Deep inside of me

Will teach me to grow

But until then

Everything will have to wait

And I promise you this

When the time is right

I won’t be late

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

I can’t say that I don’t care

Because I do give a shit

But for right now

I don’t want to face it

I’ve checked right out

Not looking back

Looking forward with blinders on

These chains are gone

These chains are gone

I am sorry

I just need some time alone

And you ask me how long?

I don’t really know

But this pain

Deep inside of me

Will teach me how to grow

But until then

Everything will have to wait

And I promise you this

When the time is right

I won’t be late

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

And now these chains are gone

I’m just learning to walk again

I’m not listening

I’ve got to walk again

Now that these chains are gone

I’m just learning

Learning to walk again

I am sorry

I just need some time alone

And you ask me how long?

I don’t really know

But this pain

Deep inside of me

Will teach me to grow

But until then

Everything will have to wait

And I promise you this

When the time is right

I won’t be late

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

I’m just learning

Learning

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

And be back again

But until then

I’m just checking out

So I can learn

To walk again

Walk again

WHO I AM (THE HIPPIE SONG)

Some people can be mean

Some people can be cruel

And some people can choose

To think and not be a fool

I’m pleased to meet you

And shake your hand

The simplest thing

One can say is hello

That’s who I am

The simplest thing

That I can do is listen to you

That’s who I am

I will walk

For those who can’t walk

I will stand

For those who can’t get up

And I will listen

For those who can’t hear

And I will care

Because I do

That’s who I am

Loving is easy

Compassion is a gift to us from ourselves

And kindness is the glass of wine we raise in a toast

My God is love

And love is my God

And as sure as the sky is blue

I love you

That’s who I am

I don’t care if you’re blue or green

But I want to know what in life you’ve seen

I know what you want

But tell me what you need

That’s who I am

And that is love

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
