Lyrics


The night is still and the night is calm, except for the breezes I feel drifting through the palms.

But the still and calmness of the night deny the raging storm within the heart that's shipwrecked on love's shore.

The morning light doesn't change anything, whether I see blue sky or it's all clouds and rain.

For my heart is shackled to the mem'ry of your love so sweet, and I can see it will be captive 'til the last time that I breathe.

The image of you dances through my heart and haunts my mind.  Night after night the chances you'll return are left behind.

If you've really gone away forever from this life of mine, the song, it begs you "come around and let me hold you one last time".

Afternoon will come around and I'll still feel the pain, no matter if that sun looks down or just those clouds and rain.

For this heart remains addicted to the mem'ry of your love, and Heaven knows the spell won't be lifted 'til the day I'm called above.

The image of you dances through my heart and haunts my mind.  Night after night the chances you'll return are left behind.

If you've really gone away forever from this life of mine, the song, it begs you "come around and let me hold you one last time".

If you've really gone away forever from this life of mine, the song, it begs you through the night "come back and hold me one last time".

Lyrics


As I came upon these rollin' hills her in Southern Illinois - drivin' along one day through Heartland USA

A memory came into my head from when I was just a boy - and the smell of that crude oil filled this land night and day

Way back when this interstate was just a two-lane blacktop road - those rockin' horses worked hard to barely pump the load

Now the horses mostly stand in silence - dead and gone to rust - the tanks are dry and the smell of oil has become the smell of dust

And it makes me think of all the change this world has undergone 'cause people can't leave well enough alone

We say change is for the better - but sometimes it seems we never even stop to think about the things we lose

When the trees obscure the forest - as we turn the wheels of progress - just to say we've come around to somethin' new

Some things are old because they're good - not the other way around

New ain't always better is an inconvenient truth that I have found

Those rockin' horses have no choice - their time has come and gone - the dry wells here replaced by another big oil find

But to call a lie the truth and say it was that way all along - and turn wrong to right for progress is so blind

We say change is for the better - but sometimes it seems we never even stop to think about the things we lose

When the trees obscure the forest - as we turn these wheels of progress - just to say we've come around to somethin' new

Some ways are old because they're good - not the other way around

New ain't always better is an inconvenient truth that I have found

Some things we lose in the name of progress are worth more than the progress we have found

Lyrics


Our lives we stake on the deeds and works of Man – lay our trust and faith on shifting sand – though time and again we’ve known the fallacy of believing in only what we see.  ...Racing through our lives ignoring all he gives to remind the wise that He lives...  And when we realize all the truth we’ve never learned, to replay our lives then you know we’ll yearn – as unto the dust we all return.

But there’s a better way of life for you and me – leaning on His grace and our forefathers’ creed that our days to roam these Earthly streets and plains are just a shadow of the time when this all burns – or when unto the dust we all return.

Let us, then, give heed to His plan for you and me – live out His message sound – stand on solid ground.  And then more each day – with each step along the way – we’ll grow to see the light and walk “by faith not sight”.  Take time, while we're here, to read all the signs of love that everywhere appear from up above – never to regret the way our lives have turned. A new result to get, you know then we won’t yearn – as unto the dust we all return.

For there’s a better way of life ahead for you and  me – leaning on God’s grace and our forefathers’ creed that our days to roam these Earthly streets and plains are only a shadow of the day when this all burns – or when unto the dust we all return. For unto the dust we all return. Yes, unto dust we all return.

Lyrics


Farewell to a dear friend; the curtain falls and brings it all to an end.  And as the final act with history blends, we realize we may never meet again . . . never meet again...

And what a trip – a journey so fine – we have shared here with one another.  And as for those we leave behind, we pray they’ll only make it better . . . better when we’ve gone – after we’ve gone . . .

To us this day seems as the end of a fairy tale that we have lived together.  But as we are dispersed in the wind, the experience remains with us forever, and lives on in memories.

Now to our friends – the ones who will stay – we bid good fortune as they follow us.  And through all time what we end today always remains within our hearts – a part of us.  Memories will live on and on . . .

HER WAY

Lyrics


I
f you said “drop dead gorgeous looks”, you’d be definin' her.  If you said “smokin’ hot’’, her body would be on your mind.  'Cause if you look at her too long, you’ll feel your knees grow weak, and get all tongue-tied, and find it’s really tough to speak.  You gotta watch yourself, to keep from thinkin’ things - oh me . . .  And if she gets too close to me, she’s gettin’ swept right off her feet.  She’s the world’s best cryin’ shoulder.  But whenever you cry there, you just wanna hold her! 
'Cause that’s her way.  That’s her way.

No, I'm not that shallow man you think you heard in verse one.  For she's angelic - Heaven sent - to find a sweeter woman never can be done.  'Cause that's her way.  That's her way.

Now, she's the best friend that anybody has ever had - someone to lean on when everything is goin' bad.  It's like she always has somebody else's need weighin' on her mind and makin' her heart bleed.  I've never heard a word out of her that was unkind.  And a more giving soul I'm pretty sure you'll never find.  If there's a way to be of help, it's what she wants to do for you.  And to burden you with all of her snafu's, she'd rather die than ever do.

So if you're thinkin' it's all about her physique, you could not be more wrong; it's who she is inside that makes me weak. 
'Cause that's her way.  That's her way.

You know I'm not the superficial guy you thought you heard in verse one.  For she's angelic - she's Heaven sent - to find a sweeter lady never can be done.  'Cause that's her way...  sweet unselfish way...  her giving way...  angelic way...  That's her way...
