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

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

STOPPING CLOCKS

Let me dance with you

Under the light of the stars

Let me kiss you under

This spotlight called the moon

Let me show you everything

From Venus to Mars

Let us run against the calendars and the clocks

And rather than later, let us do this soon

Because there is no time

That can pass between us

There is no time

When we’re together

No time

In our reality

That is you and me

There is no time

Let us lay together

And just laugh and talk

Let us just gaze into each other’s eyes

And just laugh and smile

Let us hit the ground running

Holding hands as we walk

We can cover lots of ground

And we could go for miles

Because there is no time

That can pass between us

There is no time

When we’re together

No time

In our reality

That is you and me

There is no time

You and I

Could pass time

For eternity

You and I

Have so much to see

If we didn’t do it together

It’d be the death of me

You and I

Because there is no time

That can pass between us

There is no time

When we’re together

No time

In our reality

That is you and me

There is no time

The universe is so big

And there’s so little time

And it takes a very long time

And we can stop clocks

So take my hand

Please take my hand

And run away with me

Run away with me

We’ll be so happy

Stopping clocks

Because there is no time

That can pass between us

There is no time

When we’re together

No time

In our reality

That is you and me

There is no time

When you’re stopping clocks

Stopping clocks

When we’re together

We’ve lost the time

You lose the time

Stopping the clocks

YOU FLIPPED THAT SWITCH

I was so dead insideNo chance of hope

I was just along for the ride

Trying to hide being a big mope
Your smile lifted me up

Your laugh was so contagious

I drank from your cup

And it’s just so outrageous
With a flip of switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch
For so long I felt so lost

Just taking up space

I felt I had no worth and no cause

Turns out all I needed was your friendly face
You let me into your life

And showed me another world

You spun me around and took out the knife

The thoughts in my head swirled
With a flip of a switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch
I look into your eyes

I can get so happily lost

No more alibis

Your sun has melted my frost

With the flip of switch
With a flip of switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch
I cannot stop smiling 

Seeing the beauty in everything

Your love is all I’m dialing

You can hear my heart singing
With a flip of switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch
It’s electric

Since you flipped that switch

I feel the electricity

Since you flipped that switch

Inside of me

Since you flipped that switch
With a flip of switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch

SAD DAYS

Sad daysOut of country

Sad days

For all my family
Sad days

I know this walk so well, I know the way

Sad days

The light is for what we paid
Sad Days

They won’t ever add up

Our tears will never fill

Time’s coffee cup
Sad Days

Soon they will fall behind

The past can be so mean

But our future will be so kind
So sad days

So sad days
Sad days

Sometimes it’s not so nice

Sad days

We pay a painful price
Sad days

They seem to last forever

Sad days

Not very bright not very clever
Sad Days

They won’t ever add up

Our tears will never fill

Time’s coffee cup
Sad Days

Soon they will fall behind

The past can be so mean

But our future will be so kind
So sad days

So sad days
A sad day like a rainy day

Lead to rainbows along the way

A sad day can exasperate your joy

But like the clouds it will pass

Like a child’s old broken toy

Sad days like any day leads to a brand new day

It’s okay

It’s okay
Sad Days

They won’t ever add up

Our tears will never fill

Time’s coffee cup
Sad Days

Soon they will fall behind

The past can be so mean

But our future will be so kind
So sad days

So sad days
Sad days

Just like an old lost friend

Sad days

The wounds will eventually mend
Sad days

I sit and I will wait

Sad days

For time will never wait
Sad Days

They won’t ever add up

Our tears will never fill

Time’s coffee cup
Sad Days

Soon they will fall behind

The past can be so mean

But our future will be so kind
So sad days

So sad days

So sad days

So sad days
