Fill It Up Again (Indigo Girls)

 

Won't have you see me as your sad sack

Lost my something and I can't get it back

Or a kill on your trophy rack

I checked my schedule now my train is rolling down a track

Past the sadness of the salt flats

To the prospect of the land fat

Or just a lazy orange house cat

On the sofa where I'll be put up

You've been the hole in my sky, my shrinking water supply

Before my well runs dry

I'm going round round round the bend

Fill it up again

I'd like to say that it was clear to me

Love triangle geometry

But in the end it's still a mystery

The placement of affection and the disarray

I gathered up the courage that it took

Made that bed and took one last look

And you could hear the pages flapping in the wind blown

Book of my days, my days

(refrain)

One tank gone second thoughts are on my mind

What's this trip gonna cost me this time

The devil I know is starting to look awfully kind

But the new road is an old friend

Fill it up again

(refrain montage)

 

 

Why Walk When You Can Fly (Mary Chapin Carpenter)

In this world there's a whole lot of trouble baby

In this world there's a whole lot of pain

In this world there's a whole lot of trouble but

A whole lot of ground to gain

Why take when you could be giving

Why watch as the world goes by

It's a hard enough life to be living

Why walk when you can fly

 

In this world there's a whole lot of sorrow

In this world there's a whole lot of shame

In this world there's a whole lot of sorrow

And a whole lot of ground to gain

When you spend you whole life wishing

Wanting and wondering why

It's a long enough life to be living

Why walk when you can fly

 

And in this world there's a whole lot of golden

In this world there's a whole lot of pain

In this world you've a soul for a compass

And a heart for a pair of wings

There's a star on the far horizon

Rising bright in an azure sky

For the rest of the time that you're given

Why walk when you can fly

 

 

 

Running on Faith (Bernadette Peters)

Lately I've been running on faith

What else can a poor boy do?

But my world will be right

When love comes over you

Lately I've been talking in my sleep

I can't imagine what I'd have to say

Except my world will be right

When love comes back your way

I've always been

One to take each and every day

Seems like by now

I'd find a love who cares just for me

Then we'd go running on faith

All of our dreams would come true

And our world will be right

When love comes over me and you

Chorus

Then we'd go running on faith

All of our dreams would come true

And our world will be right

When love comes over me and you

When love comes over you

 

I Want to Live Again (Trisha Yearwood)

Kept my head in the sand so long

It makes a heart real hard to find

I've had enough of a love gone wrong

To last a lifetime

But tear drops on a lonely night

Are never gonna make things right

I've got to get out

>From under this cloud

 

I want to live again

I want to laugh

I want to love

I want to roll those dice

Gonna run the risk

Do the dance

Take a chance

And let the heartache ride

I want to live again

 

Gonna pull the curtains back

Let a little moonlight in

Run around in a Cadillac

And feel the wheels spin

And when I set my spirit free

I know the past will rest in peace

I don't care what I face

'Cause whatever it takes

 

I want to live again

I want to laugh

I want to love

I want to roll those dice

Gonna run the risk

Do the dance

Take a chance

And let the heartache ride

I want to live again

 

Teardrops on a lonely night

Are never gonna make things right

I've got to get out

>From under this cloud

 

I want to live again

I want to laugh

I want to love

I want to roll those dice

Gonna run the risk

Do the dance

Take a chance

And let the heartache ride

I want to live again

 

Make Your Own Kind of Music (Mama Cass)

Nobody can tell ya

There's only one song worth singing

They may try and sell ya

Cause it hangs them up

To see someone like you

 

You gotta make your own kind of music

Sing your own special song

Make your own kind music

Even if nobody else sings along

 

It can't be nowhere

The loneliest kind of lonely

It may be

Just to do your thing is the hardest things to do

 

You gotta make your own kind of music

Sing your own special song

Make your own kind music

Even if nobody else sings along

 

And if you will not take my hand

Then I must be going, I'll understand

 

You gotta make your own kind of music

Sing your own special song

Make your own kind music

Even if nobody else sings along

 

You gotta make your own kind of music

Sing your own special song

Make your own kind music

Even if nobody else sings along

 

You gotta make your own kind of music

Sing your own special song

Make your own kind music

Even if nobody else sings along

 

No no no no

Even if nobody else sings along

If nobody else sings along

 

True Colors (Joanie Bartels)

You with the sad eyes

Donít be discouraged

Oh I realize

Itís hard to take courage

In a world full of people

You can lose sight of it all

And the darkness, inside you

Can make you feel so small

 

But I see your true colors

Shining through

I see your true colors

And thatís why I love you

So donít be afraid to let them show

Your true colors

True colors are beautiful,

Like a rainbow

 

Show me a smile then,

Donít be unhappy, canít remember

When I last saw you laughing

If this world makes you crazy

And youíve taken all you can bear

You call me up

Because you know Iíll be there

 

And Iíll see your true colors

Shining through

I see your true colors

And thatís why I love you

So donít be afraid to let them show

Your true colors

True colors are beautiful,

Like a rainbow

 

So sad eyes

Discouraged now

Realize

 

When this world makes you crazy

And youíve taken all you can bear

You call me up

Because you know Iíll be there

 

And Iíll see your true colors

Shining through

I see your true colors

And thatís why I love you

So donít be afraid to let them show

Your true colors

True colors, true colors

 

Cos thereís a shining through

I see your true colors

And thatís why I love you

So donít be afraid to let them show

Your true colors, true colors

True colors are beautiful,

Beautiful, like a rainbow

 

Thank You For Being a Friend (Andrew Gold)

Thank you for being a friend

Traveled down a road and back again

Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant

 

I'm not ashamed to say

I hope it always will stay this way

My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

 

And if you threw a party

Invited everyone you knew

You would see the biggest gift would be from me

And the card attached would say

Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend

 

If it's a car you lack

I'd surely buy you a Cadillac

Whatever you need any time of the day or night

 

I'm not ashamed to say

I hope it always will stay this way

My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

 

And when we both get older

With walking canes and hair of gray

Have no fear even though it's hard to hear

I will stand real close and say

Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend

 

And when we die

And float away

Into the night

The milky way

You'll hear me call

As we ascend

I'll say your name

Then once again

Thank you for being a friend

 

Little Hercules (Trisha Yearwood)

So you cannot lift a spirit that has turned to lead

Or shine a light in shadow when the batteries are dead

Or fly like a bird over all the works of man

Or always think of the perfect words

But you do the best you can

 

Nothing seems as easy as it did when you were young

Myths may be invincible, but we are only strong

Strong like a memory, strong like a willow in the wind

Strong as you'll ever be, you will always need to bend

 

And if you feel the weight of the world

Put your mind at ease

Little Hercules

 

There are times when being a grown-up gets to be too much

And your sense of humor seems to vanish in the crush

Of the daily 9 to 9 that keeps your family alive

You're just putting in your time

Does anyone really go home at 5?

 

You've made a life where no one ever tells you what to do

Now the only tyrant that you're working for is you

It's never easy to keep all the promises you make

But no one's gonna get you fired

If you'd just give yourself a brake

 

And if you feel the weight of the world

Put your mind at ease

Little Hercules

'Cause there's so much on your shoulders

But you know it's a breeze

Little Hercules

Little Hercules

 

Kind and Generous (Natalie Merchant)

You've been so kind and generous, I do know how you keep on giving

For your kindness,I'm in debt to you

For your selflessness, my admiration

For everything you've done, you know I'm bound,

I'm bound to thank you for it....

 

La-La-La-La-La...

Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey...

 

You've been so kind and generous, I don't know how you keep on giving

For your kindness I'm in debt to you

And I never could have come this far without you

For everything you've and then thats what i saiddone, you know I'm bound,

I'm bound to thank you for it....

 

La-La-La-La-La...

 

Oh, i have been blessed

I want to thank you for so many gifts you gave, the love and tenderness,

 

I wanna thank you

I want to thank you for your generosity,

the love and the honesty that you gave me

I want to thank you, show my gratitude, my love and my respect for you,

I wanna thank you

 

Oh I want to thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,

thank you...

 

All That We Let In (Indigo Girls)

Dust in our eyes our own boots kicked up

Heartsick we nursed along the way we picked up

You may not see it when it's sticking to your skin

But we're better off for all that we let in

 

Lost friends and loved ones much too young

So much promises and work left undone

When all that guards us is a single centerline

And the brutal crossing over when it's time

 

(I don't know where it all begins)

(And I don't know where it all will end)

(We're better off for all that we let in)

 

One day those toughies will be withered up and bent

The father son the holy warriors and the president

With glory days of put up dukes for all the world to see

Beaten into submission in the name of the free

 

We're in a nevolution I have heard it said

Everyone's so busy now but do we move ahead

The planets hurting and atoms splitting

And a sweater for your love you sit there knitting

 

(I don't know where it all begins)

(And I don't know where it all will end)

 

(We're better off for all that we let in)

 

See those crosses on the side of the road

Tied with ribbons in the medium

They make me grateful I can go this far

Lay me down and never wake me up again

 

Kat writes a poem and she sticks it on my truck

We don't believe in war and we don't believe in luck

The birds were calling to her what were they saying

As the gate blew open the tops of the trees were swaying

 

I've passed the cemetery walk my dog down there

I read the names in stone and say a silent prayer

When I get home you're cooking supper on the stove

And the greatest gift of life is to know love

 

(I don't know where it all begins)

(And I don't know where it all will end)

(We're better off for all that we let in)

 

I Believe in You (Bette Midler)

Well I don't believe in superstars,

in fancy food or foreign cars;

that Hagen Dazs and motherhood

have done my body any good;

that Elvis is alive and well;

that courtesy has gone to hell;

that kindness is in short supply;

that little kids should have to die.

 

But I believe in love.

I believe in dreamers.

I believe in miracles

and I believe in you.

 

Well, I don't believe virginity

is as common as it used to be;

that left is wrong and right is right;

that black is black and white is white;

that the Beatles could be history,

the sixties just a memory;

that war will never go away;

that Johnny Carson's had his day.

 

But I believe in love.

I believe in angels.

I believe in Mom and Dad

and I believe in you.

 

I know with almost certainty

what's going on with you and me

is a good thing.

I know it's true.

I believe in you.

 

Now, I don't believe that heaven waits

for only those who congregate.

I like to think that God is love.

He's down below, He's up above,

and He's watching people everywhere.

He knows who does and doesn't care.

And I'm an ordinary girl

trying to make my way in this old world.

 

And I believe in love.

Yes, I believe in music.

I believe in promises

and I believe in you.

 

Well, I know with almost certainty

what's going on with you and me

is a good thing, a good thing.

And I know it's true.

I believe in you.

 

You know, darlin', that I believe in love.

Yes, I believe in dreamers.

I believe in miracles

and I believe in you.

 

Woah-ho-ho-oh, baby, I believe.

Yes, I believe.

I believe in promises

and I believe in you.

 

Woah, come on, baby, say you believe in love.

Say you believe in dreamin'.

Believe in blue, blue skies,

'cause I believe in you . . .

 

 

A Place in the World (Mary Chapin Carpenter)

What I'm looking for, after all this time

Keeps me moving forward, trying to find it

Since I learned to walk all I've done is run

Ready, on my mark, doesn't everyone

Need a place in the world

 

Could be right before your very eyes

Just beyond a door that's open wide

Could be far away or in your own backyard

There are those who say, you can look too hard

For your place in the world

 

Takes some of us a little longer

A few false starts gonna make you stronger

When I'm sure I've finally found it

Gonna wrap these arms all around it

 

Could be one more mile, or just one step back

In a lovers smile, down a darkened path

Friends will take our side, enemies will curse us

But to be alive is to know your purpose

It's your place in the world

Your place in the world

Your place in the world

 

Stones in the world (Mary Chapin Carpenter)

When we were young, we pledged allegiance every morning of our lives

The classroom rang with children's voices under teacher's watchful eye

We learned about the world around us at our desks and at dinnertime

Reminded of the starving children, we cleaned our plates with guilty minds

And the stones in the road shone like diamonds in the dust

And then a voice called to us to make our way back home

When I was ten, my father held me on his shoulders above the crowd

To see a train draped in mourning pass slowly through our town

His widow kneeled with all their children at the sacred burial ground

And the TV glowed that long hot summer with all the cities burning down

And the stones in the road flew out beneath our bicycle tires

Worlds removed from all those fires as we raced each other home

And now we drink our coffee on the run, we climb that ladder rung by rung

We are the daughters and the sons, and here's the line that's missing

The starving children have been replaced by souls out on the street

We give a dollar when we pass, and hope our eyes don't meet

We pencil in, we cancel out, we crave the corner suite

We kiss your ass, we make you hold, we doctor the receipt

And the stones in the road fly out from beneath our wheels

Another day, another deal, before we get back home

And the stones in the road leave a mark from whence they came

A thousand points of light or shame, baby, I don't know

 

 

Friends (Bette Midler)

And I am all alone.

There is no one here beside me.

And my problems have all gone.

There is no one to deride me.

 

But you got to have friends.

The feeling's oh so strong.

You got to have friends

to make that day last long.

 

I had some firends but they're gone,

somethin' came and took them away.

And from the dusk 'til the dawn

here is where I'll stay.

 

Standing at the end of the road, boys,

waiting for my new friends to come.

I don't care if I'm hungry or poor,

I'm gonna get me some of them.

 

'Cause you got to have friends.

Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, friends.

That's right you, oh you, yeah you,

I said you gotta have some friends,

I'm talkin' about friends, that's right, friends.

Friends, friends, friends.

 

I had some firends, oh, but they're all gone, gone,

someone came and snatched them away.

And from the dusk until the very dawn, you know,

here is where I gotta stay, here is where I gotta stay.

 

And I'm standing at the end of a real long road

and I'm waiting for my new friends to come.

I don't care if I'm hungry or freezin' cold,

I'm gonna get me some of them.

 

'Cause you gotta have friends,

that's right, friends, friends.

I gotta me my, I gotta me my, I gotta me my,

look around and see all of my friends.

Oh, friends, that's right, friends, friends,

friends, friends, friends, friends, oh,

friends, you gotta have friends . . .

 

Under the Rainbow (Trisha Yearwood)

Now the night's turned pink

On the eastern edges

But the sky is cold and still

And I wonder if it's the sunrise

Warming the desert

Or the lights of Tucson from over the hill

It's a hard way to love you

This long distance romance

Always stopping and starting again

I don't mind the miles

When I'm out on the highway

But even when I'm with you the miles just don't end

And I'm two days from knowing

Whether I can be strong

If I spend one more night in your arms

So I've a mind to keep going

And drive right past your door

But I'm two days from knowing for sure

As the night closes down

Dawn fills the horizon

And stretches it out at the seams

And I'm not sure if tomorow

I'm gonna be any closer

To closing the distance between you and me

And I'm two days from knowing

Whether I can be strong

If I spend one more night in your arms

So I've a mind to keep going

And drive right past your door

But I'm two days from knowing for sure

Well I've a mind to keep going

And drive right past your door

But I'm two days from knowing for sure

 

In This Life (Bette Midler)

For all I've been blessed with in this life,

there was an emptiness in me.

I was imprisoned by the power of gold.

With one kind touch you sent me free.

 

Let the world stop turning.

Let the sun stop burning.

Let them tell me love's not worth going through.

If it all falls apart,

I will know deep in my heart

the only dream that mattered had come true:

In this life I was loved by you.

 

For every mountain I have climbed,

every raging river crossed,

you were the treasure that I longed to find.

Without your love I would be lost.

 

Let the world stop turning.

Let the sun stop burning.

Let them tell me love's not worth going through.

If it all falls apart,

I will know deep in my heart

the only dream that mattered had come true:

In this life I was loved by you.

 

I know that I won't live forever,

but forever I'll be loving you.

 

Let the world stop turning.

Let the sun stop burning.

Let them tell me love's not worth going through.

If it all falls apart,

I will know deep in my heart

the only dream that mattered had come true:

In this life I was loved by you.

In this life I was loved by you
