This Is My Heart

There’s something that I have for you
and though it’s not brand new;
depending on your point of view
it can make your dreams come true.
So close your eyes and open your arms.
get ready to receive,
the Greatest gift that anyone can conceive.

This Is My Heart.
Please take care of it
and keep it safe and warm.
This Is My Heart.
I’ve no spare for it
so it must be kept from harm.
It’s been broken once or twice.
That’s why it’s hard to roll the dice and gamble.
This may smart, so be careful it’s my heart.

Love’s An Open Door

So far from home, yet so at home when you’re in my arms.
If you need a friend, on me you can depend.
You came from a long way to find out what you’ve always known.
When true love holds you it won’t let go.

Don’t be afraid dear if we ever should part.
Know that you’re always welcome here in my heart.

Where ‘ere you roam, you’ll be
at home when you’re in my arms.
Love’s An Open Door.
I’ll be yours forever more.

The World Would Much Brighter Be

The World Would Much Brighter Be,
if you were here with me.
And birds would surely sing.
My heart would fly with wings.
And if you ask me what my wish would be,
there could be just one possibility.
If love could be, just you and me,
The World Would Much Brighter Be.

What If Tomorrow Never Comes?

Someday we’ll understand.
One day we’ll get it right.
Follow the master plan, give up the fight.
One day we’ll say the words,
that we have longed to say.
Words that are only heard in music that’s played.

What If Tomorrow Never Comes?
What if we never get the chance?
We’ll live by carpe diem.
Let’s love laugh and dance.
What if today was all we had?
What if the future never came?
We’ll take the good with the bad,
the sun with the rain.

Yesterday’s come and gone.
Memories holding on.
How can we right the wrong, that’s over and past?
Maybe some other day, luck will be on our side.
‘Til then we’ll hope and pray our fortune will shine.

I See You

I wake up every morning in my lonely room
and everywhere I look, I See You.
I sit down to read the paper
and on the front page news,
I don’t see the headlines. I See You.

And on my way to work Lord, I turn on the radio.
I don’t hear what they’re saying. I hear you.
You’re up on every billboard.
What am I supposed to do?
I look in the rear view mirror and I See You.

I See You, but, you’re not looking back at me.
Guess it’s true, that what we had is gone
and you’ve moved on.
Now all that’s left are my memories.

So before I go to sleep I say an urgent prayer,
That in my dreams tonight, I’ll see you there.
And then I hug my pillow just to ease the blues.
And when I close my eyes, I See You.

Irena Matka

Irena Matka. Irena Matka.
You brought the sun to my world.
Before you met me, fortune beset me
when you gave birth to a girl.

A sweet little baby, wonder if maybe,
someday she’ll shine like the stars?
Searching and hoping, eyes wide arms open.
You’ll find my love in your heart.

Oh Irena, joni matka.
Ooh kohana, kobieta.

We speak different languages, it’s true.
But still we share something me and you.
We both love someone who loves us too.
That gives us a closer point of view.

Irena Matka, Irena Matka.
You lit the stars in the sky.
I see them twinkle when her nose wrinkles
and I’m bewitched by her smile.

A sweet little baby, wonder if maybe
someday she’ll shine like the stars?
Searching and hoping, eyes wide arms open.
You’ll find my love in your heart.

The Eyes Of Children

The Eyes Of Children
innocently, look out with wonder,
eager to see, a dream of beauty,
magically, revealing what it means to be free.

Running and laughing singing out loud.
Hide and go seek. Can you find me?
The world is a glorious place to be ‘round,
when seen through the pure eyes of the children.

Come all ye children, young and old.
The pied piper’s taking a stroll.
Hypnotic music reaches your soul
uncovering treasures richer than gold.

Running and laughing singing out loud.
Hide and go seek. Can you find me?
The world is a glorious place to be ‘round,
when seen through the pure eyes of the children.

Looking through the pure eyes, children of the world.
Reaching for the blue skies. Culturing the pearl.
When will mankind realize, wisdom on this world,
is never quite as clear as, the moment of our birth?

Two Walk A Trail

Two Walk A Trail, but who can tell,
if their love will fail or all is well?
To plant a seed or pull a weed.
Will love succeed for you and me?

I picture the snow getting larger as it rolls.
Just as feelings grow if we’ll only let ‘em show.
There’s no time for pretending we’re lovers from the start.
We’ve got to keep on mending or we’ll fall apart.

Dreams full of love songs we had from the start,
grow when the feeling comes straight from the heart.
If you stay, we’ll share the fire
and warm our hearts with sweet desire.
Two Walk A Trail.

One Day She Flew

Once was a bird that was flying so high,
singing songs in Spring.
Then one day she landed so hard,
she tried but she couldn’t sing.
One Day She Flew.
The next thing she knew,
she had a broken wing.

Walking when you’re accustomed to flying,
seems like you’re going nowhere.
Friends pass by with a wave and a smile
and you pretend to care.
One Day She Flew.
The next thing she knew,
everything seemed unfair.

Oh to fly with the light in your eyes
into a new sunrise.
To explore the endless blue skies,
watching the world tumbling by.

Once was a bird that was learning to fly,
after a fall from the sky.
It was hard but she tried and with time
she made it higher and higher.
One day she fell and who can tell
if she’ll sing her song in Spring.
One day she fell and who can tell
if she’ll sing her song again.

How Can We Cross The Great Divide?

How Can We Cross The Great Divide?
Sometimes it seems to be too wide.
From different sides our worlds collide.
How Can We Cross The Great Divide?

How can someone who’s been a part of me,
break free and drift away so easily?
The love we shared seems just a memory.
I’d like to get back where we used to be.

There was a time when I could make you smile.
I saw the admiration in your eyes.
Now it seems no matter how I try,
can’t seem to make it to the other side.

Don’t forget when we were holding hands
to safely get across the road.
Remember building castles in the sand
and how the waves tore them down,
crashing ‘round.

How Can We Cross The Great Divide?

Thin Ice / Liberating Lover

We’re walking on Thin Ice. This could mean a fall.
Perhaps we should think twice or not think at all.

The sirens are calling. They’re singing our song.
So why are we stalling? This feeling can’t be wrong.

If David conquered Goliath and Moses parted the sea,
there’s hope for the broken hearted. There’s help for you and me.
If we can summon the courage and faith from down deep inside,
then heaven’s sure to encourage this walk on Thin Ice.

Forgive me if I hesitate. It’s just that I’ve been burned.
I’ve hid my heart to keep it safe from pain where love’s concerned.

I dreamed a vulture was tearing my heart out. Somehow my heart prevailed.
But still that vulture is keeping his eye out for each romance that fails.

So like a prisoner, here I lay with nightmares in my bed,
until my true love comes and slays these dragons in my head.

Could you be my Liberating Lover?
Could you be the one to set me free?
Could you help this wounded heart recover?
Fulfill my destiny.

Flying To Forever

Once flew an eagle from afar
Searching for love sent from the stars.
Soaring through the skies, casting off its tethers.
Then landing on a rock, ruffling its feathers.

Then came an eagle all alone
longing for love, the perfect one.
A flutter from afar caught his full attention.
Just what he’d waited for, filling his ambition.

Then they flew together.
Flying To Forever.

Mariachi Ball

I stepped into a crowded hall
and saw them dancing one and all.
I heard the lady sing her song
there at the Mariachi Ball.

Her voice was bluer than the sky.
A melancholy lullaby.
The tears were welled up in her eyes
and then I heard the lady cry.

It started low. A little moan.
Then from her soul, she let it go.
My heart is torn, when I recall
the night she sang for the Mariachi Ball.

Some Say

Some Say there are secrets locked up deep inside.
But they’ll be no more secrets when I look in your eyes.
They tell the story of life and its cost.
The pain and glory of love found and lost.

Some Say there are problems that cannot be solved.
But together our problems can all be resolved.
When I am near you my pulse is a drum.
The sound of two hearts beating as one.

When the night’s getting colder
let me be there to hold her.
When troubles enfold her
I’ll offer my shoulder.

Some Say that time heals if we can let go.
Here’s hoping that time seals our love as it grows.
Just let tomorrow, erase the sorrow
And love will follow. You’re not alone.

Whatever Some Say
I know that we’ll stay, together always.
I’m coming home.

What Good Am I Without You?

What good’s a fish that cannot swim?
What good’s a bird that cannot fly?
What good’s a wish that never can come true?
Tell me What Good Am I Without You?

What good’s the sun that doesn’t shine?
What good’s a star without the sky?
What good’s a painter’s palate with no blue?
Tell me What Good Am I Without You?

Like a flower needs the rain. Like a candle needs a flame.
Everybody needs someone to face the great unknown and know you’re not alone.

What if a lucky roll of dice
bought all my dreams of paradise?
What if my fate was fame and fortune too?
Tell me What Good Am I Without You?
