25 Years Ago

V1

Mamma I found the letter that you sent,

25 years ago and every word you said

came whispering in the wind like an old friend

visiting for the moment, then gone again, and...

Chorus

I don't want to pretend

'cause mama this world around me

is not the one you left

in every letter you said,

"the sun don't stop from shining,

they'll be happiness again.....again

V2

Walking alone along these empty streets

People have all gone crazy

stop and stare at me

like never before I need all my old friends

Life is here for the moment, then gone again, and...

Chorus

I will never pretend

'cause mama this world around me

is not the one you left

in every letter you said,

"the sun don't stop from shining,

they'll be happiness again.....again

Bridge

Confusion in a world that lost it's face

the smiles have disappeared as 

memories fad-ed.

Mama I found the letter that you sent

25 years ago, 25 years ago,

came....whispering in the wind,

like an old friend.

Watching All The Children Play

V1

Another day has just begun, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh

We turn our faces toward the sun, ahh, ahh, ahh

Outside this window there's a door,

where the children play

There's been a thousand times before....

Not today

V2

How quickly innocence it fades ahh, ahh, ahh, 

Our numbness teaches us to hate ahh, ahh, ahh, 

Look what this hatred has become,

mothers lose their precious sons to

all the rockets flying in the air

but God He doesn't care what we believe

or what we wear.

Chorus

He wants to watch the children play

He wants to watch the children play

He wants to watch the children play

V3

And we are brothers with these guns ahh, ahh, 

We stand apart where we were one ahh, ahh, 

How quickly innocence it fades,

numbness teaches us to hate and shoot our

rockets high up in the air,

But God He doesn't care what we believe or what we wear.

Chorus

He wants to watch the children play

He wants to watch the children play

He wants to watch the children play

He wants to watch the children play

Doin' What We Do

V1

You, memories in my head

the colors seem so red

captured by the days of fall

Me, so much I should have said,

but in a box instead

and hung in pictures on the wall

Pre-chorus

And suddenly the sky has lost it's Blue

everything looks different

The roses in the sunshine

all faded on the other side of glass

Silent walls are echoing the laughter...

 

Chorus

In photographs

 

V2

We, heavy from the rain

broken from the pain

waiting for the sun to rise

Love, love lost all of her seeds

she feels that she can't breath

the clouds have come to say goodbye

Pre-chorus

And suddenly the sky has lost it's Blue

everything looks different

The roses in the sunshine

all faded on the other side of glass

Silent walls are echoing the laughter...

 

Chorus

In photographs

Bridge

ooh ooh ooh

ooh ooh

Pre-chorus

And suddenly the sky has lost it's Blue

everything looks different

V1
Walking with time
innocence comes and it slips away
It's like we are blind
time comes along
and changes everything

Pre-chorus
We laugh
We Cry

Chorus
What if the world could change and,
We could be blind, innocent and true
Just like the games we played when
We were just children 
Doin' what we do
Doin' what we do
Doin' what we do

V2
Under one sky
one side is dark
and one side blue
i think deep inside
we're not do different me and you

Pre-chorus
We laugh
We Cry

Chorus
What if the world could change and,
We could be blind, innocent and true
Just like the games we played when
We were just children doin' what we do
Doin' what we do
Doin' what we do

Bridge
Humming

V3
Grains in the sand
in a world of anything we want to be
walk hand in hand
there are no walls for separating

Pre-chorus
you
me

Chorus
What if the world could change and,
We could be blind, innocent and true
Just like the games we played when
We were just children doin' what we do
Doin' what we do
Doin' what we do

What if the World could change and...

Love, Words Can't Erase

V1

Everything we've been through yea

the hours of our life

Looking back on what's true yea

'cause nothing's black and white

Pre-chorus

It's not the way

I gave my life to you

It's the words, of what she meant to you

Silence inside, thoughts rang like suicide

lost in the rain

Moments in time, numb paralyzed

all slipped away

Chorus

With Love words can't erase

Love words can't erase

V2

No one ever but you yea

the mirror of my eyes

And I know what is true yea

Oh, between you and I

Pre-chorus

It's not the way

I gave my life to you

It's the words, of what she meant to you

Silence inside, thoughts rang like suicide

lost in the rain

Moments in time, numb paralyzed

all slipped away

Chorus

With Love words can't erase

Love words can't erase

Bridge

Shadows in darkness fade

but love, you can't erase

We Can Work It Out

When I first heard Stevie's rendition
of We Can Work It Out, I was blown
away. Even though it is such a
funky upbeat vibe, it made me cry
the first ten times I listened.

I don't know how I missed hearing it when I was younger. 

It's now one of those recordings
I could play over and over and just
not get tired of.

I already loved that song, especially because of the lyrical content. It is
very in sync with my thoughts on
life, but where Stevie takes it...it
just deeply speaks to me.

I have chosen for the first time to
do a couple of covers, and this is
one.

To Love Somebody

Although the Bee Gees are one of the 
greatest artists of all time, and
I am un awe of their talent, most 
especially their songwriting. I cannot
say I listen to them a lot, but I do love
Jive Talk'n and listen to that often (hee
hee).

I was working in my garden one day and this song just came to me very strongly in my head. I hadn't heard it for years. I don't know why it suddenly popped in my head, but sometimes my lyrics come to me that way, so, I took it as a sign
that I needed to cover it.

I'm really happy that I did, because
I'm really having fun doing it.
