1) carla's never song  -  


there are places that i have never been
and you and i, we may go there
and there are voyages that i have never made
i want to take them by your side

and there are lives that i have never lived
you might hold them in your hand
there are dreams that i have never dreamed
i think i see them in your eyes

there are seas that i have never sailed
be my sextant, be my guiding star
oh, there are stories that never have been told
and you have helped me tell the tale this far

oh, there are voyages that i have never made
i want to take them by your side
there are places that i have never been
i think i see them in your eyes

there are lives that i have never lived
you might hold them in your hand
there are dreams that i have never dreamed
won't you help me understand



2) dancin' in the waves  -  

the rain clouds blown over
the moon shining through the trees
one fledgling fallen from its nest
and you are gone so far from me

the rain soaked leaves catch my footfalls
the crickets sing at Summer's end
the last blackberries ripen in the lane
and i have lost my only friend

wait for me, wait for me, my gray eyed darlin'
where the dancers face each other in a line
swing the night away now with whom you will
we had one waltz in perfect time

we were dancin' in the waves
dancin' in the waves,
we were dancin' in the waves

and i held you by both hands
we let the water spin us 'round and 'round
'til we we lay down on the shiftin' sands
we were dancin' in the waves.

now we are asleep above the waterfall
far below the river runs
and the birch branches will not touch again
'til it's high Spring and the leaves have come

wait for me, wait for me, my gray eyed darlin'
where the dancers face each other in a line
swing the night away now with whom you will
we had one waltz in perfect time

we were dancin' in the waves
dancin' in the waves,
we were dancin' in the waves

and i held you by both hands
we let the water spin us 'round and 'round
'til we we lay down on the shiftin' sands
we were dancin' in the waves.
dancin' in the waves,
dancin' in the waves.

first i gave you all my love and joy
then i gave you all of my fears
last i showed you my hurt and my anger
now i have given you all my tears

we threw our bodies in that icy stream
now you see i can't swim no more
but sometimes i wish you would turn back and love me
and carry me over to the other shore.

wait for me, wait for me, my gray eyed darlin'
where the dancers face each other in a line
swing the night away now with whom you will
we had one waltz in perfect time

we were dancin' in the waves
dancin' in the waves,
we were dancin' in the waves

and i held you by both hands
we let the water spin us 'round and 'round
'til we we lay down on the shiftin' sands
we were dancin' in the waves.
dancin' in the waves,

and i held you by both hands
we let the water spin us 'round and 'round
'til we we lay down on the shiftin' sands
we were dancin' in the waves.
dancin' in the waves.



3) psalm 100, 150   -  

make a joyful noise unto the Lord all ye lands
serve the Lord with gladness
and come before His presence
with singing.

know ye that the Lord, he is God
it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves
for we are His people
and the sheep of His pasture.

enter into His gates with thanksgiving
and into His courts with praise
be thankful unto Him
and bless HIs name.

for the Lord, he is good
His mercy is everlasting
and His truth endureth,
His faithfulness endureth to all generations.

make a joyful noise unto the Lord all ye lands.

praise ye the Lord
praise God in his sanctuary
praise ye the Lord
praise Him in the firmament of His power.

praise Him for His mighty acts
praise Him according to His excellent greatness
praise Him with the sound of the trumpet
praise Him with the psaltery and the harp.

praise Him with the timbrel and dance
praise Him with stringed instruments and organs
praise Him upon the loud cymbals
praise Him upon the high sounding cymbals

everything that hath breath
praise the Lord
everything that hath breath
praise the Lord
everything that hath breath
praise the Lord

praise ye the Lord,
praise ye the Lord!




4) dandelion  -  

oh, won't you make me a hood
that i can wear around my head
so i will always hear the music
so our joy will never cease

oh, won't you make me a cloak
that i can wear around my shoulder
something taken in anger,
something woven in peace

oh, pick it and blow
it's like a child's balloon
you can never steal the show
and the end will never come too soon

when you're done with what comes after
you can put it down with laughter
it will find you, it will follow you
it will bring back and swallow you
dandelion or daisy,
or the man in the moon.
dandelion or daisy,
or the man in the moon.

the destroyer does not care
about the beauty of the star
oh, it is dying and exploding
though its light can reach so far

and i look on in bitter anger
because my love lasts just one day
i want to tear up my happiness
and throw my life away.

teach me... to

pick it and blow
it's like a child's balloon
you can never steal the show
and the end will never come too soon

for when you're done with what comes after
put it down with tears or laughter
it will find you, it will follow you
it will bring back and swallow you
dandelion or daisy,
or the man in the moon.
dandelion or daisy,
or the man in the moon.

make me like an iron bell
that never sounds at all
except to ring with every echo
of the wind as darkness falls

oh make me like a stone
don't let me lose my restless way
oh, won't you teach me how to listen
teach me how to pray.

pick it and blow
it's like a child's balloon
you can never steal the show
the end will never come too soon

for when you're done with what comes after
put it down with tears or laughter
it will find you, it will follow you
bring back and swallow you
dandelion or daisy,
or the man in the moon.
dandelion or daisy,
or the man in the moon.
dandelion or daisy,
or the man in the moon.
dandelion or daisy,
or the man in the moon.


                                                 

5) send me an angel  -  

send me an angel
to take away these sorrows
take away this sadness
and take away my grief

oh, won't you send me an angel
to take away the heavy feelin'
roll the stone from my heart
give me sweet, sweet relief

won't you send me an angel
with a brights shining face
and hands filled with healing
to wash away every trace

of the night that surrounds me
lost love and regret
all my tears and my failures
won't you help me forget

oh, won't you send me an angel
take away these troubles and trials
all my fears for the future
change these doubts to belief

oh, won't you send me an angel
to take away the heavy feelin'
roll the stone from my heart
give me sweet, sweet relief.

roll the stone from my heart
give me sweet, sweet relief.




6) one of these days  -  

one of these days
i'm gonna sing a love song gain
one of these days
but i don't know exactly when
one these days i'll meet you, oh yes, i will
maybe one of these days i won't be so blue

it seems like a long time
since i been here alone
the house is quiet and empty
my friends they have all gone home

i'm sittin' at the piano
singin' this melancholy song
wonderin' when you will
ever come along.

yes, it seems like a long time
since i been here alone
the house is quiet and empty
my friends they have all gone home

i'm sittin' at the piano
singin' this melancholy song
wonderin' when you will
ever come along.


one of these days
i'm gonna sing a love song gain
and one of these days
i don't know exactly when
and one these days, i'll meet you, oh yes, i will
maybe one of these days i won't be so blue,
maybe one of these days i won't be so blue.



7) spring's coming back -  

Spring's coming back
the little colts are born
let's go fishing this weekend
it's starting to get warm
it's time for Spring cleaning
almost time to mow the lawn
Spring's coming back again.

now flying kites is fun
have a hot dog on a bun
let's go for a picnic
here comes the sun
oh, we can run and play ball
buy Spring clothes at the mall
Spring's coming back again.

maple syrup is boiling
the snow's almost gone
all the birds are coming home
trees and flowers have begun
and little boys climb the trees
little girls feel the breeze
Spring's coming again
Spring's coming again.



8) obadiah  -  

your mother and i have been apart for a long time
she didn't want to live with me
and i couldn't make love to her
anymore

she was too crazy, and me
i was just too damn lazy
for dealin' with changes life had
in store.

so we'll remain the friends we are
and love each other as we have
and we always will

and never bring to birth
the child we talked about
sometimes when we're together, you know
we cry about you still.

Obadiah, you're a real live boy
though you're livin' somewhere in the air
though you'll never outgrow your baby shoes
you'll never grow into the grown-up blues

but i'll always be your daddy
put your starry pajamas on
i'll tuck you in, all cozy warm.

Obie, you got lost again today
where the other boys chased you, after school
imagination runnin' wild,
you were hiding in a hollow log
you'll live to fight another day
play the cynic
and cut the fool.

but now, you're reading with your flashlight
late into the night
while the radio plays
beneath your pillow

you don't care about the other boys
you treasure up your memories
the sweet, sad songs you'll want to keep
i wake up from dream
i hear you singing in your sleep

Obadiah, you're a real live boy
though you're livin' somewhere in the air
with your glasses strapped to your beady eyes
you'll always be my genius-child

and i'll always be your daddy
put your starry pajamas on
i'll tuck you in, all cozy warm.




9) my friends  -  



sometimes my friends are short
sometimes my friends are tall
sometimes my friends are fat
sometimes they're skinny as a rail

sometimes we get along
sometimes we fight
sometimes we feel like stayin' up
and talkin' all night

and talkin' all night

sometimes you treat me so cruel
you're so hard to forgive
sometimes you make me feel so good
seems like you're my reason to live

sometimes you act so strange
sometimes you're wonderful
sometimes you make me feel lonely
sometimes you just don't care at all

your my friends
sometimes i don't know why
but somewhere deep inside
our hearts are tied

together in love
way down low, or up so high
good or bad, i guess i'm glad
that you're my friends

my friends

sometimes you make me angry
sometimes you let me down
sometimes you're loyal and true
sometimes i feel close to you
sometimes you try to help me
make it through

sometimes my friends are short
sometimes my friends are tall
sometimes my friends are fat
sometimes they're skinny as a rail

sometimes we get along
sometimes we fight
sometimes we feel like stayin' up
and talkin' all night

and talkin' all night

11) handful of rain  -  

i would have filled your hands with gold
builded you a castle where the waters rolled
but alas today, my dear,  i've nought to give to you
but my selfsame heart still beating strong and true

it is the Spring again, my dear  
the winter long you've been my friend
you stuck with me through thick and thin
oh, stay with me another year    

i would have given you the world
Lord knows, i wished you could have borne my child
if i fought for these, i fought in vain
here's a single rose, a handful of rain

it is the Spring again, my dear  
the winter long you've been my friend
you stuck with me through thick and thin
now stay with me another year    

i would have carried all your troubles, dear, here within my breast
alas, here's just my arm on which to lean and rest
i would have given this hand to hold, until we'd both grown old
alas, here's just my time today, and here's my hand to hold

it is the Spring again, my dear  
the winter long, oh, you've been my friend
you stuck with me through thick and thin
oh, stay with me another year    

stay with me another year
