"Wind Beneath My Wings"


Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.
Still wondering what I'll be when I grow up.

Stop Crying Your Heart Out by Oasis:


Hold up... hold on... don't be scared
You'll never change what's been and gone
May your smile (may your smile) shine on (shine on)
Don't be scared (don't be scared)
Your destiny may keep you warm

'Cause all of the stars have faded away
Just try not to worry, you'll see them someday
Take what you need and be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

Get up (get up) come on (come on)
Why you scared? (I'm not afraid...)
You'll never change what's been and gone

'Cause all of the stars have faded away
Just try not to worry, you'll see them someday
Take what you need and be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

'Cause all of the stars have faded away
Just try not to worry, you'll see them someday
Just take what you need and be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

We're all of the stars
We're fading away
Just try not to worry, you'll see us someday
Just take what you need and be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

Stop crying your heart out
Stop crying your heart out
Stop crying your heart out...

Doomed from the start, we can't stay apart
Everywhere I turn I'm trapped in your heart
There's no escape, secrets keep you awake
No running away, no saving the day
Wild and exciting I'm breaking you down
You're making a comeback, I'm taking your crown
Nursery rhymes I sing in my dreams
I'm lost in the woods and you're baring your teeth

Written as a rock ballad, by *blush* me.


Waiting On You

I can see you sitting alone,
wishing somebody wouldl call,
but it isn't my place.

I'm just a friend, waiting in the wings.
I'll be here when the world turns it's back on you.
When the night seems too long and your sky's fade to grey,
I'll be waiting in the wings.

I can hear your silent tears,
crying out for understanding.
But I cannot see you.

I'm just a face in the crowd.
I'll be here when the cheers have all faded
When no one will listen to your stories,
when your fair weather friends have all gone.

I know you're fighting alone tonight,
Wondering who will help you win.
But it isn't my war.

I'm just a lover you never knew
I'll be here when the war hasl ended
When you’re weak and cannot hold
Your head up anymore.

I feel the pain you hide,
Wanting somebody to see,
But looking at it frightens me

I'm just a broken heart, hiding from the fear
I'll be here when you've cried the last tear
When your broken and alone.
I'll hold you close.

I'm just a friend waiting in the wings.
Only a face in the crowd,
A lover you never knew
And the broken heart you left behind.

But I'll be here until the end of time
'Cos I love you and I need you,
Friend of mine.

Endless Numbered Days. It was our song, and it still is. Just reading the lyrics strangles me to tears.

Although this is a Leon Russell song...Donny Hathaway's version slays me




A Song For You

I've been so many places
In my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs
I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my love in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and
I'm singing this song for you

I know your image of me
Is what I hope to be
I've treated you unkindly
But darlin' can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Darlin' can't you please see through me
Cause we're alone now and
I'm singing this song for you

[Chorus]

You taught me precious secrets
Of the truth withholding nothing
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I'm so much better
And if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody
Cause my love is in there hiding

[Verse 3]

I love you in a place
Where there's no space or time
I love you for in my life
You are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and
I was singing this song for you

[Repeat chorus and verse 3]

We were alone and
I was singing this song for you

...and then I heard Elliot Yamin sing it and HE slayed me too...

Here's the secret - never give up! :biggrin:






Don't give up on us baby, don't make the wrong seem right
The future isn't just for the night, it's written in the moonlight
And painted on the stars, we can't change us.....

Don't give up on us baby, we're still worth one more try
I know we put the last one by, just for the rainy evening
When maybe stars are few, don't give up on us I know
We can still come through

I nearly lost my head last night, you've got a right to stop believing
There's still a little love left, even so

Don't give up on us baby, lord knows we've come this far
Can't we stay the way we are, the angel and the dreamer
Who sometimes plays a fool, don't give up on us I know
We can still come through

And painted on the stars, we can't change us
Don't give up on us baby, we're still worth one more try
I know we put the last one by, just for the rainy evening
When maybe stars are few, Don't give up on us baby I know
We can still come through

Don't give up on us baby, don't give up on us baby
Still wondering what I'll be when I grow up.

The Boxer by Simon & Garfunkel...its a song I would often play when feeling lonely.

I am just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Lie la lie ...

Asking only workman's wages
I come looking for a job
But I get no offers,
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there

Lie la lie ...

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone
Going home
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Bleeding me, going home

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains

Lie la lie ...

This became the "theme" of a very painful break-up, many years ago.






Touch me in the morning,
Then just walk away,
We don't have tomorrow,
But we had yesterday.
