Lyrics

One Last Lullaby

Night has fallen now it's time for you to close your eyes and go to sleep under the stars above.
Lay your head to rest, this day is through. Now it's time for you to dream of better days to come.

And though I'm not there to say goodnight,
I wrote this melody to sing one last lullaby.

Clear your mind of what you're dwelling on let the past be what it is. Whatever's done is done.
Nothing now can change what's happened, dear. You can't unring once the bell has been rung.

And though I'm not there to say goodnight,
I wrote this melody to sing one last lullaby.

And if you awaken to somber reflections, remember what's taken there's always reason for.

And though I'm not there to say goodnight,
I wrote this melody to sing one last lullaby.

Lyrics

REUNION

For a moment, voices call and decorate my memory.
Painted portraits, somewhat altered from the way they used to be

I know I've seen your face before,
but still your name I can't recall.

It is you!

Stories offer sentimental refuge from the pleasantries.

I know I've seen your face before,
but still your name I can't recall.

It is you!

In a moment, times dissolving like a faded melody.
Still, I'll always know they'll all be far away, but close to me.

Lyrics

ONE IN MANY WAYS

I just want to tell you that you're beautiful
when the morning sun is swimming
through the waves of your blond hair
as they crash down upon your neck and shoulders.
Soon you'll sail in from the sea of dreams
and our eyes will meet again.

Reminding me of just one in many ways
that I'm in love with you.

I just want to tell you that you're beautiful.
Chasing off the last remaining trace of silence that
once reigned over the night and on into the morning.
Soon a whisper will begin to bring its kingdom to an end.

Reminding me of just one in many ways
that I'm in love with you.

I just want to tell you that you're beautiful
in case you don't already know, or just need to be reassured.
The many things that I adore.
The many ways, whys, and what fors,
have made us more than lovers.
We're the best of friends.
Now and forever.

Lyrics

 

60's Summer Heartbreak
Stay with me.
Baby, won't you stay with me.
Stay with me and hold me till the break of day.

Say to me
anything and everything.
Tell me that you'll love me from so far away.

And if you give your world for me, I'll give you mine, love.

And I, I can almost hear you now.
When you said you were my girl.
Oh, tell me why, girl, I can't get over you.

Wish with me
on the first star that we see
that how we are this moment we will be always.

When you leave
I'll dream of you endlessly.
Promise that I'll wake up to your face someday.

And then you said three words to me that melted my heart.

And I, I can almost hear you now.
When you said you were my girl.
Oh, tell me why, girl, I can't get over you.

And then you gave your world for me, and I gave you mine, love.

Lyrics


After Oz
Rainbows can fade into the sky that sent them down to you.
Youth falls away and time has a way of catching up with you.
All the yellow bricks are slowly turning gray,
And I can't remember which road I should take.
I've grown out of pigtails and my ruby shoes don't fit the same
as they used to.

Thought I'd escape by running away, but I was so naive.
I found out the hard way, Oz wasn't all it was cracked up to be.
'Cause I heard the scarecrow slowly went insane,
and the lion over through his magistrate.
And the rumor has it that the tin man's heart beats to this day
but it's rusting.

I always thought the wizard was a little quick to say goodbye
as he set his balloon to the sky.
It seems to me he had become a prisoner of his own life.
But I guess that's a horse of a different color.

When I came to Oz I wore my heart on my sleeve.
Didn't know quite where to hide it.
Walked out my door and left my childhood behind.
I was hoping to find what every young girl's looking for in her life.

I'll try everything and anything.
Too much never is enough for me.
I was never full. Not for something new.

I lost my innocence but still can't decide if I'm a good witch or a bad witch.
Walked off my path and wandered into the trees.
They threw apples at me! I was only trin to find me something to eat!

I want just a little room to breathe.
I've not had a lot of time to grieve over what I've lost. 
'Cause life keeps pushing on.
How much would it cost to buy back what I've done?

The witch is dead. I hear the song.
I've dreamt about this far too long.
Her broom is mine. The story has to end.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!
It's been worth my while.
So, I'll click my heels and smile.
There is still no place like home.
