VERSE
If we give in, we can make the changes
That push away the past
Drop the weights that are on our shoulders
Walk away and don’t look back

CHORUS
“Cause today is going to be a great day
It’ll happen if we make it that way
Today is going to be a great day
Nothing’s going stop us
It’s going be a great day

VERSE 2.
Why wait for the perfect moment
To finally make a vow
When the time for a new direction
Will always start right now
I know it’s going to happen
If we decide to start right now …. singing ….

REPRISE
Oh, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria
We can do it, it’s going be a great day
Oh, Gloria, Gloria, (Glory, Glory) Gloria (Glory, Glory)
We can do it, it’s going be a great day
Glory, Glory, it’s going be a great, great day

BRIDGE
Now, here’s the key to make it happen
Give each moment all we can
Use your heart to build your freedom
Then I‘ll know you’ll understand…that…

REPEAT CHORUS
Today is going to be a great day
It’ll happen if we make it that way
Today is going to be a great day
Nothing’s going stop us it’s going be a great, great day …. singing

REPEAT REPRISE

Verse 1.
I close my eyes and I see nothing
I open them wide and it’s still the same
I hoped to see a glimpse of you running
And you were heading my way

Chorus
I know a heart that’s broken in two
Won’t believe that love can be true
But, my heart’s an open door
I see you reach and turn the key
And step back into me
And suddenly I feel complete
But, I know I was dreaming
I was only dreaming
I was dreaming
I was only dreaming

Verse 2.
Out in the mist I can see a shadow
Your lips appear and brush against my cheek
Whispering my dreams can all come true
If I find the path leading back to you

Chorus
I know a heart that’s broken in two
Won’t believe that love can be true
But, my heart’s an open door
I see you reach and turn the key
And step back into me
And suddenly I feel complete
But, I know I was dreaming
I was only dreaming
I was dreaming
I was only dreaming

VERSE 1.
I saw you in a dream
Your were waiting for a train
You woke me up and you made me cry
The disguise you wore it did you well
For you almost past me by
But, we embraced and we held the time
We didn’t have to try
We didn’t have to try

CHORUS
‘Cause old friends will stay old friends
Through distances and time
Old friends can mellow through the years
Like children and old wine

VERSE 2.
I lost you on the river
You were rowing with your gun
And when the bottom was filled with holes
Your rowing was all done
Now, I sleep on half the bed
I leave a place for you
And staring through the moonlight
I dream that I had rescued you
‘Cause we embraced and we held the time
We didn’t have to try
We didn’t have to try

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
There’s a hunger in an empty heart
Without love and understanding
But a friend can always fill you up
With the gift that is never ending

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 1
A whisper woke me in the dead of night
Took my hand and said, “Let’s go for a ride”.
Flew me up to the top of a hill
And pointed to the town below, quiet and still
Said, “See those flames, those are hearts on fire.
Those puffs of smoke that’s love that’s expired.
See those shapes you can’t see through?
Those are hearts that are black and blue.”
LIFT
A single tear can turn a flame to dust
Or revive a heart that’s trampled and crushed
Where’s the answer, one I can use?
So I don’t continue to lose
It’ s time to choose
REFRAIN
“Cause if I live a life that is un-true
Then I will live a life that’s black and blue
VERSE 2
Then we drifted to the heart of town
Drawn to the colored lights of a merry-go-round
Watched painted ponies gliding up and down
She said, “Hmm, which one would you choose?”
Well, if love’s a journey of goodbyes and hellos
And moments of passion that come and then go
I’ll choose the colors that take me to you
And stay away from the ponies painted black and blue
LIFT
I hesitated till I finally let go
Like sunflowers rising from the snow
My heart awakened and pushed back the cold
When You showed the way to break through
So, I’ll never lose
REFRAIN
Cause if I live a life that is untrue
Then I will live a life without you
And if I give a love that is not true
Then I will live a life that’s black and blue
That’s black and blue
That’s black and blue
That’s black and blue

I’ll be the river and hold you when the ice is thin
I’ll be the river, come and drink me in
Me down here and you upon the bridge
Filling me up with your tears
Yeah, filling me up with tears
Let go and fall in my arms and we will drift to the sea
Where the winds will lift you up and set your troubles free

Sometimes we’re blind
Even when we try to see
Sometimes we’re blind
Oh, sometimes when we’re wandering
And overwhelmed by the unknown
And you think that you’re invisible
When you’re lost and all alone
You need the river heading home
When you’re lost and all alone
You need the river heading home
So, I’ll be the river hold you when the ice is thin
I’ll be the river, come and drink me in

So, let go and fall in my arms and we will drift to the sea
