Let’s keep it simple no need for complication There once were eyes who saw you cross the room I tiptoed ‘round the edges of expectation, did you? I always find I shy from the situation But handsome you were already on the move Then suddenly I fell into conversation…with you I liked the sound of your "how do you do" I had to laugh out loud as you tripped on your shoe Your cheeks were red as roses and you asked if I’d go walkin’ with you? I’d love to Do Do Do Do Do For so long now I’ve wondered How this story begins When two should meet, It’s all so sweet I think it might be happening Let’s keep it simple no need for complication There once was I and darling you were you But now that we have stumbled on declarations There’s us, There’s us

Hear Me Out 03:34
I was talkin' to talk You were staring at me Wonderin’ if I’d ever say what I mean It was the easy way out But better than the truth Of giving up and lettin’ go of you Of giving up and lettin’ go of you Verse 2 I had fallen in love With a mystery And mistook it for your reality When it became clear I was all caught up In a love that would never be enough In a love that would never be enough Chorus Hear me out, Hear me out For just a moment Let’s be, Let’s be honest Bridge Empty promises and loneliness Verse 3 It’s time to say goodbye I hope you understand I’m a crazy fool and you’re an honest man Someday you’ll see it’s true And you’ll believe it too That I was loving you more in lettin’ go of you I was loving you more in lettin’ go of you

Verse 1 Wake up darling This is the morning We choose to live free The binding is broken The mending was spoken Over you and me Pre-CH/CH Cause how can we capture The wild blue yonder When lovers dreams grow weary in slumber and All we do is sleep All we do is sleep All we do is sleep Verse 2 Wake up darling See past horizons The lines that we drew Held fast to me and you These roots grew for a reason The truth came in seasons Discovering you A love made new Pre-CH/CH Cause how can we capture The wild blue yonder When lovers dreams grow weary in slumber and All we do is sleep All we do is sleep All we do is sleep Wake up darling This is the morning We choose to live free Pre-CH/CH

Verse 1 You flew in with promise And you built your home in my heart With care you crafted your walls dear But I loved you from the start Chorus So go on and love me And say what’s on your mind Come on and trust me I’m ready this time Verse 2 So we filled the frames with our stories But the dust settled for memories unclear You longed for the freedom to hold me But our strength was tethered in fear Chorus But go on and love me And I’ll say what’s on my mind Come on and trust me When I say I’m ready this time Bridge I will be here waiting I will hold the line You can take your time love I’ll make the most of mine Chorus But go on and love me And I’ll say what’s on my mind Come on and trust me When I say I’m ready this time

Verse 1 Night Owl, you caught me dreaming I know I should be sleeping I’ve got you on my mind Night Owl, I was just wishin’ For the Love I’ve been missing Someday you’ll be mind Pre-Ch And though I’ve yet to meet ya Don’t even know your name I hope you feel the same Chorus Who are you Who are you Who are You Verse 2 Night Owl, what can you tell me? Is he Do you think maybe Dreaming of me too? Night Owl, now don’t you tease me This could Could be so lovely If what you say is true Pre-Ch Cause though I’ve yet to meet him Don’t even know his name I hope he feels the same

Pedaled through to mysteries Telling tales of tall grass seas Setting sail to lands unknown A vast world waiting outside our home A cardboard castle became our kingdom Trees a place to roam with freedom Much is lost in space and time Still I find these places within my mind With much to discover And much to define Our view was colored with roses And no thought of fear No place for pain A time when nothing could stop us No not a thing Stars replaced by city light And sounds more frightening then their sights Buildings paint a welcome sign Concrete castles ten thousand stories high I wondered down the streets with you Tore the map and fumbled our way through CHORUS Ooooo Picture frames and photographs Bridging memories from the past With you, With you Oh how it was to be so young Living breathing for the fun With you, With you CHORUS
7.
Stay just a little bit longer If I were a little bit stronger of heart I wouldn't dare Leave you, leave you standing there Oh we can handle this If we give just a little bit more More than a lingered goodbye Too stubborn to try Oh why can't we see past this part Choose your weapons wisely I am delicate darling and I I couldn't heal From the words, words you couldn't feel

I will build a home for you and me my love We’ll marvel at the beauty as our dreams unfold We’ll make a plan I’ll work the land Till harvest dear Don’t worry darling, have no fear, for I am near We’ll make it through We’ll make it through As long as we’re together dear We’ll make it through Years went by we filled our lives with many dreams Three girls a boy, and so much joy You can’t believe But plans we made will have to wait Just one more year Though times are tough, We’ll have enough, I promise dear We’ll make it through We’ll make it through As long as we’re together dear We’ll make it through The kids are grown and on their own, and here we stand 35 years later, we’re still hand and hand And though my eyes have aged My heart still knows your gaze And darling rest assured my love will never fade We’ll make it through We’ll make it through Year by year I’ll love you dear We’ll make it through

Say Anything 03:47
VS 1 So here we are Silent wondering where to start A perfect mess Anxious wondering who moves next Questions in your eyes Questions in your eyes Say anything Say everything Please take the time Say what’s on your mind (2x) VS 2 Consider this The love we share is worth the risk If it’s not enough Then tell me where does that leave us Questions in your eyes Questions in your eyes Say anything Say everything Please take the time Say what’s on your mind Bridge Distance has a way of easin’ in Beginning what now seems to be the end Listen I’m not tryin’ to push you out I know, we got a lot to talk about Say anything Say everything Please take the time Say what’s on your mind (2x)

Happy 02:56
Verse 1 You say you wanna marry me I say that’s a very good possibility Cause I sure do love ya So you call your ma and pa And I’ll make the long distance call To Indiana CHORUS Cause I do oooo Do oooooo I do Verse 2 You shone with your twinklin’ eyes That shine took my surprise cause I I wasn’t ready for fallin’ My feet had barely touched the ground When you started hangin’ around And you, you were callin’ me baby CHORUS Cause you knew ooo Knew ooo It’s true Oh you do oooo You do Verse 3 So we’ll live a quiet life I’ll be your sweet little lovin’ wife Cause you, your mine one and only And we’ll share this band of gold And no other hand will hold The love, that’s within our story CHORUS And we’ll be eeee Be eee So ooo happy Yes we’ll be eee Be eee So ooo Happy

Oh my friend, I see you’re worried Can you tell me what’s on your mind? I’ll be your shoulder along highway To help you walk another mile Well your hurting, cause your heart’s beating And that wont’ stop while your alive But there is beauty all around us Friend I see it in your eyes Love is on the other side Love is on the other side Love is on the other side We are not alone, no Love is on the other side When the night is filled with sorrow And the day can't find the light There is rest for the weary Lay down your burdens my child and close your eyes Cause hate will separate us From the things we believe But let the love that guides us onward Makes a friend of enemies CHORUS Now peace be with you When the end is drawing near And may the face of God greet you In heaven my friend CHORUS
