Day #97: (I Know That) You’re A Love Song

(I Know That) You’re A Love Song

That girl can’t save her own life
What can I do?
And she won’t fall back in love–
Damned if I do.
And she says she’s a friend of mine!

What kind of friends play old lyrics
Two shy, once burned
While we spend time like old money
Someone else earned
Still she says she’s a friend of mine

But I know that you’re a love song
And I know that you’re a love song
And every word you say goes with the music
But I know that you’re a love song
And I know that you’re a love song
And every word you say goes with the music

Did Romeo and Othello
Live like I do?
As Julie, and Desdemona
Guess what you do.
Still you say you’re a friend of mine.

Day #96: Don’t You Know Me

Don’t You Know Me

Lady’s looking for a rock-and-roll sound
To keeping her dancing all night
And she’s hoping for a love that won’t fade,
I’m thinking, “Hey, good luck to you”

And she’s been round New Orleans
To hear the blues
Old jazz artists paint her portrait in brass
Yeah, she’s a world all by herself

Chorus:
Hey, girl, don’t you know me,
I make the world safe for you
So sad songs never get here,
There’s a place they hide from you
Even if that world is inside of me

She tells the comic strips “I only see
What I believe,
I thank you kindly but the world is going by
It’s time for me to hitch a ride.”

She plays the senorita very well
She’s got the romance and the temper
I haven’t lived that long, but I believe
The world will thank her for her time

Chorus

Day #95: Lift Up My Hands

Lift Up My Hands

Lord let me give thanks to you
This day belongs to you
This holy gift from you
And I lift my hands in thanks

Lord let me worship you
All glory goes to you
No one greater than you
And I lift my hands in worship

I lift up my hands to you
I lift up my heart to you
I lift up my life to you
I lift up my love to you
You are so awesome
And I lift up my hands to you

Lord let me pray to you
All goodness comes from you
And grace and mercy too
And I lift my hands in prayer

I lift up my hands to you
I lift up my heart to you
I lift up my life to you
I lift up my love to you
You are so awesome
And I lift up my hands to you

Day #94: I Swear I Heard the Night

I Swear I Heard The Night

I have heard, and I believe
There’s a world beyond our sight
And if you’ve no imagination
You won’t see what others might

You might think there’s something strange
In the way I walk this path
Following it through the valley
Like I’ve seen the better half

Chorus:
I swear I heard the night
A voice from above me
Reaching through the stars
Oh yes I heard the night
Whispering a secret
“I am what you are”
Oh yes I heard the night
I swear I heard the night

And so the world is not so big
And the fear can’t get a start
Once you know that there’s an answer
And you know that you’re a part

Chorus

Day #92: Tell Me You’re a Vampire

Tell Me You’re a Vampire

You’re not as unusual
as people like to say
Skin’s a little different
But we’re in a modern day

You don’t seem as dangerous
As they say all the time
Smile seems very charming
But since when is that a crime?

Nobody knows you like I do
Nobody gets this me and you

Chorus:
Tell me you’re a vampire
And I will dance with you
Tell me how you’ve lived so long
And I’ll live that way too
Tell me you’re a vampire
Tell me what to do
Cause the only forever I want
Is forever with you

Please come meet my parents
They’ll fall in love with you
Dressed like some old novel
And a foreign accent too

Nobody knows you like I do
Nobody gets this me and you

Chorus

 

Day #91: A Love Like Diamonds

A Love Like Diamonds

I know she’s gonna live forever
She can’t help it; she’s a lover
But sad songs are gonna rule the world
If I don’t find her, take my word:
Don’t fall in love with her.

I’ve lived, the times I’ve been with her
She’d believe it, if she’d seen it.
Strangers are all she’ll ever know
Until I find her, take my word:
Don’t fall in love with her.

Chorus:
Cause it’s a love like diamonds
That keeps her in my heart
Yeah, it can cut through anything
And shines brighter than a star
And it lasts, it lasts forever

Here’s all she ever said to me,
“Part of the answer is the question,
And I’ll share them all again someday,
If you find me, take my word:
I’ll fall in love with you.”

[CHORUS]

Day #90: Under the Nighttime Sky

Under the Nighttime Sky

You look at me and I believe
I can tell love songs what to do
This super strength that I receive
Comes from the time I spend with you

But yet I still become so weak
Whenever I get close to you
‘Cause all the love that lovers seek
I’ve found in everything you do

Chorus:
(Tell me tell me tell me)
Tell me what I mean to you
(Tell me tell me tell me)
Tell me all that we could do
Under the nighttime sky
Give me your wings and let me fly
Under the nighttime sky

You look at me and make me feel
Like we can make a better world
I look at you, and you’re all real
And you’re all mine forever girl

Chorus

Day #89: The Moon Like Me

The Moon Like Me

After love songs, I’ll never be free
Trapped in lyrics, as only fools be
Hope the world sees such romance as true
Hope the world sees lovers and love songs, too

I’m a lifeline that I’ve never aimed
Don’t believe what your first glance may say
I’m an unwrapped pretender, it’s true
Hope that love is still what lovers do

If you like the moon like me
Come see the world from sea to shining sea
If you’ll take the top of the world
I’ll take you there,
It’s not so far away
When we make love on a Saturday
Saturday night.

There’s no sad song that I haven’t heard
And no warm day without a cold word
But that all fades when I’m here with you
All I hear is lovers and love songs too

 

Day #88: He Said Peace

He Said Peace

Here I am Lord
Lost in a storm
The wind and the waves
They overwhelm me
The wind and the waves
They threaten my life

Master tell me
Lord can you hear me
Lord don’t You care
That I am drowning
Lord don’t You care
That I can’t make it

And He said “Peace”
And He said “Be still”
Though he spoke to the storm
I know he meant me too
And He said “Peace”
And He said “Be still”
I’ll see you through the storm
And I’m always here with you

Here I am Lord
Lost in the world
I’m not conformed
But it’s so tempting
I’m not conformed
But it keeps calling

Master tell me
Lord can you hear me
Lord don’t You care
That I am drowning
Lord don’t You care
That I can’t make it

And He said “Peace”
And He said “Be still”
Though he spoke to the storm
I know he meant me too
And He said “Peace”
And He said “Be still”
I’ll see you through the storm
And I’m always here with you
