Lyrics

 

(V1)     Oh, I set sail so long ago,

searching for happiness and my pot of gold.

Oh, dreams inspired me from my youth,

I woke up chasing what's the truth. 

In life, there are so many books on the shelf.

Which one will lead me to you,

to sail me through the mist

and into the blue?

 

(V2)     All alone in stormy seas,

the crash of the ocean waves cover me. 

Oh, calling out in my dream,

there must be angles watching over me,

tonight, guarding my sinking treasures,

knowing who holds the key

to all of my dream’s secret pleasures,

it’s inside of me.

 

(CH)    I’m sailing, now, right through the clouds,

out into space to Foreverland. 

Our hearts fly and slide on a moonbeam,

where each kiss is born on a star.

 

(BR)    Born on, on a star,

on a star, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Born on a star we will fly to Foreverland,

‘everland!  

 

(V3)     Far from home, lost at sea,

the light from the lighthouse calls to me.

Oh, how did I get here,

so blown off course, I don't recognize the world that I'm in.

You pulled me out of the wreckage,

out of the deep blue sea,

you patched my sails and set me free,

Oh, you set me free!

 

(CH)    (Repeat Double Chorus).

 

(Tag)    On a star, on a star,

oh, I’m on the tail of a shooting star.

So, come with me to Foreverland!

Lyrics

 

(V1)     Breathin’ in a majestic view of you,

intoxication fills my mind. 

I’d like to take a ride with you

and let my heart unwind.

Rapturously, you lift me into the clouds.

Lookin’ in your eyes,

I can’t hide

in love’s disguise.

 

(CH)    Show me your love, show me your love,

I’ll show you what I’m made of. 

I’m so in love, I’m so in love.

I’m on cloud nine in every way,

every night and day, now. 

Show me your love, show me your love,

show me what you’re made of. 

 

(V2)     Soaring up so high in skies so blue,

you lift my heart into flight.

You must have come from right out of the blue, 

can’t wait to see you, tonight.

I’m on my knees praying silently

to be where you breathe,

exceeding in life

my fantasies.

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus)

 

(BR)    So, come on boy and show me a sign. 

I think about you all the time. 

Yeah, I want you more and more each day, hey! 

Well, life can be so strange,

my world will rearrange,

so, come on boy and show me your love,

today, hey! 

 

(V3)     Breathin’ in a majestic view of you,

intoxication fills my mind. 

I’d like to take a ride with you

for the rest of my life.

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus)

 

(Tag)    Show me what you’re made of.

Show me what you’re made of.

Show me what you’re made of.

Show me what you’re made of!

Lyrics

 

(V1)     You asked me to the high school dance,

so, I’m giving you one more chance.

I am hoping for some romance.

Oh!

 

(V2)     ‘Cause, boy, ooh, you drive me so wild!

I feel like a little child

when you hold me and say my name.

Boy, you drive me insane! 

 

(CH)     I’m just a girl that’s dealing with the feelings

for a boy like you. 

I’m just a girl that’s dealing with the feelings

for a boy like you,

like you,

like you,

like you!

 

(V3)     Then, later that night I was hurt

when I saw you talking to her,

take her hand and ask her to dance.

Oh!

 

(V4)     Then, you act as if everything’s fine

and you tell me that you’re all mine.

I am hoping for the truth this time,

‘cause boy you’re so fine! 

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus)

 

(BR)    Come on and please, please tell me why!

Why do you always make me cry!

I’m just a girl!

I’m just a girl! ____

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus)

 

(Tag)    A boy like you,

like you,

like you,

a charmed boy like you!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Ooh, yeah, yeah!  A charmed boy like you!

(V1)     In the winter snow, it grows,

a red rose blooms within.

And like that winter rose,  

it’s my turn to begin.

 

(V2)    I’ve always had a song to sing

everywhere I’d go.

Now, each sunrise brings

another day to grow.

 

(CH)    I’m with you tonight,

music floating on a sea of lights.

I feel the magic in the air.

Singing up on stage,

doesn’t matter what your age,

a winter rose is so rare!

 

(V3)     Legends sometimes fall from fame,

stars fall to the ground.

Fleeting seasons fade

to memories seldom found.

 

(BR)    So, as life turns the page,

don’t get lost in the maze.

Explore all the feelings that live in your mind.

Be what you want to be,

live out your fantasies in life,

so, now is the time!

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus)

Lyrics

 

(V1)     Since I have met you we've grown closer everyday

and all my hopes and dreams are more than I can say. 

And I look toward the day when you and I will start 

sharing every day and moment, and never be apart. 

 

(1/2 CH) Ooh, you're my dream come true, my everything.

 

(V2)     Words are shot arrows that have fallen from the sky. 

They cannot reach the sun, nor feelings felt inside. 

We share a love so strong, a love that wants to live 

the promise to each other, the best that we can give. 

 

(CH)    Ooh, you're my dream come true, my everything.

Oh, yeah! You're my dream come true, my everything. 

 

(V3)     You are the colors, dear, in every sunset sky.

You are my shooting star in every starlit night. 

No one compares with you, I know that you can see 

every day with you is a gift, our love is meant to be. 

 

(1/2 CH) Ooh, you're my dream come true, my everything.

 

(BR) Oh, yeah! My everything.  

Oh, yeah! My everything. 

Oh, yeah! My everything. 

 

(V4)     Love you   with   all my heart, with every breath I breathe.

The eternal flame, you light in every fiber of my being. 

And come the day our ashes spread out on the sea, 

and God asks who loved you the most, you'll say it was me. 

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus)  

 

(CH)    Ooh, I'm your dream come true, your everything.  

Oh, yeah!  I'm your dream come true, your everything.

(V1)     Remember how we used to dance in the moonlight? 

Remember how I used to sing in your ear?  

Remember that night we drove to that site? 

Remember all the stars in the sky that night?  

 

(CH)    Remember, remember how we used to be?  

Remember, remember, oh baby, can't you see? 

Remember, remember how we used to be? 

Remember, remember! 

 

(V2)     Remember that day we drove to the coast? 

Remember our very first champagne toast?  

Remember that night, it was love at first sight,  

when we made love ‘til our souls took flight! 

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus)

 

(BR)    Like a window from the past, 

opening up to me, 

reflections in my mind, 

new visions that I see. 

I see you reaching out to me, 

bluest eyes that I've ever seen! 

 

(CH)    (Repeat Double Chorus)

 

(TAG) Remember all the sunset skies?

Remember all the times that we laughed and we cried? 

Remember all the times we made sweet, sweet love? 

You took me passed the stars in the heavens above!  

 

Remember, remember!

Remember, remember! 

Remember, remember, whoa!

Lyrics

 

(V1)     When I was just a girl, 

I'd run, stumble and fall.  

You'd hold and comfort me

'til I felt no pain at all.  

 

(V2)     And as a baby girl,

you fed and diapered me.  

At night, when I was scared,  

you'd sing me back to sleep.  

 

(BR1)  You know I love you.  

I'll always care.  

Hush now, my darlin'.  

 

(CH)    It's all right, it's all right. 

It's all right, it's all right. 

It's all right, it's all right. 

It's all right, it's all right. 

 

(V3)     Now, in your golden years, 

I'm taking care of you.  

The times have surely changed.  

The roles reversed, it's true.  

 

(V4)     The time is drawing near.  

There's nothing more to gain.  

My heart tears up inside  

to see you in such pain.  

 

(BR1)  (Repeat Bridge)

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus) 

 

(V5)     Your time is now at hand.  

There's no more fighting death.  

I'm kneeling at your side  

as you take your last breath. 

 

(BR2)  You know I love you. 

Go toward the light.  

Let love surround you.  

 

(CH)    (Repeat Double Chorus)

 

(TAG) I wish I may, I wish I might 

go back when everything was right,

when I was just a girl.

(V1)     It’s funny how I feel,

all my fears have gone away,

all my pain is gone,

I’ve got my new wings on, today, so, I pray...

 

(V2)     that you will be all right.

I have to take this flight.

All I want for you

is the love I feel to stay, for always.

my family and my friends.

I’ll be watching over you,

until we meet, again.

Again, again.

 

(V3)     Sweet memories of good and bad,

I thank you for the times we’ve had.

Every breath of life

is like a gift  from  up above, up above.

 

(V4)     I’m walking through the pearly gates

where my grandmother and sister wait. 

I am not alone,

God is on his throne, today, for always.

 

(CH2)  Don’t you cry, my children,

my husband and my kin.

I’ll be watching over you,

until we meet, again.

Kick your boots off and leave your hat by the door

‘cause where you’re goin’, cowboy,

you won’t need‘em no more.

Step up to the plate and hit a home run. 

Toss your bat and leave your ball on the floor 

‘cause where you’re goin’, rookie, 

you won’t need‘em to score.

(V1)     The stars up in the sky awaken a dream. 

A handsome knight arrived and made my heart sing.

When you met me I was so far gone. 

Rescued me from the fall, now I see 

how love should be, it's you and me, 

my world's wide open.

feet in the sand, champagne on ice. 

And we'll fly over the ocean

searchin' for our paradise,  paradise.

I want to fly away and never look back.  

When I'm in your arms, I know that I'm home.  

You're my desire, you light the fire inside of me.  

Now, I can see who I want for me,
