BRING ON THE RAIN

I don’t know why I love you

When you treat me like you do

And I don’t know why

I’d ever let my heart lie to me

And maybe you and I see things differently

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

I don’t know why I let you get to me

And maybe I should let you be

But you cast such a spell

That places me between heaven and hell

No resentment for being such a glutton for punishment

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

Treat me like a dog and call my name

And I’ll keep coming back again

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

Chalk it all up to love

As long as the stars are above

It’s nothing new, I love you

What could I ever say?

It’s the same thing everyday

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

WILDFLOWER

First things first

I’m just outspoken-I’m not bad

In my life I just have a thirst

Ever since I was born under a moon that was mad

And my dear mama

Knew I was too much to handle

Compared to my darling papa

He could not hold a candle

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

My friends would come

To have a drink

It may not have been all, but some

Would have to stop and think

If I went off in my way

Behind the laughter and the tears

I always knew the right things to say

Because like a fine wine, I get better through the years

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

You must let me submit to all my eccentricities

And how it pleases me

It’s just how I am

And I just don’t give a damn

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

Then one day I met a new flame

She was so calming and soothing

And she thought that this lion she could tame

It really was very moving

Until I took her out

And we drank and danced for days

And I showed her what life’s all about

She’ll tell you I’m crazy, but I don’t care what she says

I’m a wildflower

A vision of beauty

Some say a cutie

I may lack in humbleness

But I will address

And say it to your face

I may be a basket case

But that’s a wildflower

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

And now I am old

And I live in home

But I’m not cold

Cause in these halls I roam

And I sing and dance

And flirt with the old ladies if I get the chance

And I still rant and I rave

Life, love, and happiness, I still crave

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Now I’ve grown up and I see

I’m a wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

SURPRISES

Its no surprise

That every day

My sun will rise

And it’s no surprise

That when you caught my eye

I fell

In love with you

It was no surprise

That you had all the attention

Of all the other guys

I didn’t want to mention

But you fell

For me too

You surprise me

Everyday

You surprise me

In every way

And I’ve fallen

In love with you

Today you surprised me

When you showed up at my door

But it’s no surprise

How you leave me wanting more

And I know what’s in my heart

Is you

You surprise me

All the time

You surprise me

How you’re all mine

And I

Love how you

Continue to surprise me

This beating heart

Is just one part

Of how you make me feel

And how this love

Is real

But it’s really no surprise

That it’s you

You surprise me

Everyday

You surprise me

In every way

And I’ve fallen

In love with you

It’s no surprise

How you you make me smile

And make me open up my eyes

And just stay a little while

Just a little longer

And let me

Love you

You are such a surprise

When I didn’t think

I could meet anyone

Like you

Now let me please

Return the favor

And surprise you

You surprise me

Everyday

You surprise me

In every way

And I’ve fallen

In love with you

And I’ve fallen

In love with you

DO YOU FEEL LIKE HEAVEN?

There’s a golden light

That shines down on you

And it shines on me too

Whether it’s day or night

And it’s so warm when it holds me

Just like when you do

It makes me feel so free

Does it do that to you too?

I can breathe the clean air so deep

It makes me feel like I can fly

I can take this giant leap

My, oh, my

Do you feel like heaven?

Isn’t it all great?

This surely must be

What heaven feels like to me

Doesn’t it feel so great?

My, oh, my

Isn’t it just so divine?

I am yours and you are mine

Whenever I hear your voice

It’s just like a chorus

If I have any doubts and fears

Your calming voice is music to my ears

And when I look deep into your eyes

I get so deep and lost

No alibis

It’s just the cost

Of being so free in love

My, oh, my

Do you feel like heaven?

Isn’t it all great?

This surely must be

What heaven feels like to me

Doesn’t it feel so great?

My, oh, my

May this feeling

Never escape me

That keeps reeling

Back to you

I want to be together

With you and only you

Now and forever

That’s what I want to do

My, oh, my

My, oh, my

Do you feel like heaven?

Isn’t it all great?

This surely must be

What heaven feels like to me

Doesn’t it feel so great?

My, oh, my

A love like ours only comes round once in a lifetime

We can’t squander it one bit

Cause I want you around a long, long time

Our loves a song and it’s a hit

No one else could make me feel so alive

No one else can make me feel so good

It’s a long beautiful road to enjoy this ride

And that’s the way our love should

All of our days and nights are long

There’s no way we can get it wrong

When we keep smiling

My, oh, my

Do you feel like heaven?

Isn’t it all great?

This surely must be

What heaven feels like to me

Doesn’t it feel so great?

My, oh, my

My, oh, my

It’s just heaven

My, oh, my

When I’m with you

My, oh, my

It’s simply heaven with you

Do you feel it too?

It’s just like heaven

My, oh, my

Doesn’t it feel like heaven?

My, oh, my

Don’t you feel it too?

Do you

Feel like

Heaven?

Like I do

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

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
