The Music Lives On - Lyrics

Disappearing Angels

Voices in my head – They tell me how to feel – I seldom cross the line beyond the sand

I tiptoe through the day – Inhibited by fear – Confusing what I see with what is real

          

I listen to the silence and I hold my breath – Waiting for a sign beyond the past 

I close my eyes and try to find the answers – To the questions I haven’t even asked

 

Images are flying all around my brain – People passing by that I don’t see

Walking in a daze, Don’t know my name– All I see is what I don’t believe

 

I listen to the silence and I hold my breath – Waiting for a sign beyond the past

I close my eyes and try to find the answers – To the questions I haven’t even asked

 

Disappearing Angels got a hold on me – Disappearing Angels all around    

Disappearing Angels, they’re controlling me – I cannot see 

 

Floating through the atmosphere – Dancing on a cloud

Pinch me now ‘cause I’m not here – My feet don’t touch the ground

Lock the car and go inside – Leave your demons here

 It’s now or never you decide – Temptation or your fears – Temptation or your fears

 

I listen to the silence and I hold my breath – Waiting for a sign beyond the past

I close my eyes and try to find the answers – To the questions I haven’t even asked

 

Disappearing Angels got a hold on me – Disappearing Angels all around

Disappearing Angels, they’re controlling me – I cannot see 

Disappearing Angels - let go of me – Disappearing Angels hear me now

Disappearing Angels clear the way for me – Have faith in me

 

 

Standing Tall

Rolling like thunder – The wind at my wheels

I can turn on a dime – I’ve got the touch and the feel

I live for this moment – No stopping me now

Perpetual motion – They can’t keep me down

 

Against the odds – I’m living my dream

Breaking down barriers – I’m a moving machine

Half of the battle – Is strapping into the seat

There are so many winners – In victory and defeat

 

Rising up… / I won’t fall / I’ve got my eyes… / on the ball

 I’m gonna answer the call

 ‘Cause I’m always standing tall

 

I’m spinning in circles – I’m fighting for ground

I’m playing for keeps – I’m not messing around

Together we stand – Together we climb

Together we drive – to push it over the line

 

The boundaries have been set – The rules carved into stone

But the limits don’t apply  - When you step out - on your own

 

Never give up – Never give in

Let’s get what we came for – We’ve got the power to win

It’s all on the line now – We’re in the zone

I’m taking my best shot – I’m driving it home

 

Rising up… / I won’t fall / I’ve got my eyes… / on the ball

Watch me now / I’ll show you all

That I’m always - standing tall

 

 

Head of the Harbor

Now the leaves are turning and the autumn winds are blowing

There’s a glimmering light of winter in the breeze

As I lay down by the fire

And I think of younger days

The North Shore of the Island meets the sea

 

The old white house and the rustic gates surround me

With the beauty of the countryside abound

Like a peaceful serenade

In a lovely kind of way

I can lose myself in the visions all around

 

It’s my home - at the Head of the Harbor

It’s my home at the foot of the sound

Wherever I may roam, to the reaches of my soul

It’s the Head of the Harbor I’ll call home

 

Now the land is mine forever, there’s no question

Like the fifty acres deeded once before

The polo fields, they’re gone

But the history lingers on

As the Head of the Harbor hugs the shore

 

It’s my home - at the Head of the Harbor

It’s my home at the foot of the sound

Wherever I may roam, to the reaches of my soul

It’s the Head of the Harbor I’ll call home

 

It’s a home that will never die

It’s the place my heart resides

The children they were born, and my whole world transformed

In that home under Long Island skies

 

It’s my home - at the Head of the Harbor

It’s my home at the foot of the sound

Wherever I may roam, to the reaches of my soul

It’s the Head of the Harbor I’ll call home

 

Wherever I may roam, to the reaches of my soul

It’s the Head of the Harbor  - I’ll call home

 

 

Papa Was a Dreamer

Papa was a dreamer, his dreams made of tin

His pain and his battles, he’d dream he could win

All alone in his time, he’d look for the answers

To questions that I would plant in his brain 

He’d plan and he’d strive to find all the treasures

For ones who would live long after his time

 

Papa was a schemer, he’d scheme in his mind

Searching for words out of reach, out of rhyme

I can’t remember his voice or his laughter

But I can recall his message to me

Whether he said it, he surely ingrained

His legacy lives and his honor I see

 

He left within me the essence of righteousness

Courage to be who I am

Making my journey to uncharted places

Believing that I could withstand

Upon me I know is his hand

And his dreams

 

Papa was a dreamer, his dreams made of tin

His pain and his battles, he’d dream he could win

All alone in his time, he’d look for the answers

To questions that I would plant in his brain

He’d plan and he’d strive to find all the treasures

For ones who would live long after his time

 

He left within me the essence of righteousness 

Courage to be who I am 

Making my journey to uncharted places

Believing that I could withstand 

Upon me I know is his hand

And his dreams

 

 

Lonely Winter Storm

There’s frost on the windows – The wind whistles by – There’s a storm in the mountains – Snow in the sky

Here in the winter – Here by the fire – I can hear the soft beating – Of my own lonely heart

 

Reflections from the fire – Cast a glow on the walls – Like shadows softly dancing – In an empty dance hall

Alone in my silence – Alone with my dreams – Alone with my memories – While the winter night breathes

 

My eyes, they grow heavy – As the fire starts to die – A chill fills the room – And a tear fills my eye

The snow’s falling harder – The snow’s drifting high – The snow covered mountains – Have said their goodbyes

 

I move to the bedroom – At the top of the stairs – I tiptoe through the darkness – In the cold night air

And there on my pillow – There on my bed – There is my love – Covered up to her head

 

I lie down beside her – She stirs and she sighs – I move to her body – Her skin touches mine

She’d turned in early – She’d missed the storm – She’d left me lonely – But now, she keeps me warm

 

Curled up inside - While the cold wind blows – It’s safe with in the walls – In the place we call our home

Feeling her near me – Feeling her close – Feeling her love – Through this lonely winter storm

 

 

I'll Never Believe You Again

I’VE LISTENED TO YOUR STORIES

AND THE PROMISES YOU MADE

I UNDERSTAND YOU’RE SORRY NOW

BUT I KNOW YOU’LL NEVER CHANGE

 

I’M FIGHTING A BATTLE THAT I CAN’T WIN

YOU CAN BLAME IT ON LOVE BUT I THINK IT’S A SIN

I’VE OPENED MY EYES... I’VE SEEN THROUGH YOUR LIES

AND I’LL NEVER BELIEVE YOU AGAIN

 

I TOOK OUR LOVE FOR GRANTED

DIDN’T SEE THE WARNING SIGNS

BUT NOW I FACE REALITY

BETRAYED AND WONDERING WHY

 

I’VE BEEN FIGHTING A BATTLE THAT I CAN’T WIN

YOU CAN BLAME IT ON LOVE BUT I THINK IT’S A SIN

I’VE OPENED MY EYES... I’VE SEEN THROUGH YOUR LIES

AND I’LL NEVER BELIEVE YOU AGAIN

 

SO DON’T APOLOGIZE

‘CAUSE I WON’T COMPROMISE

IT’S JUST NOT WORTH THE PAIN

            

TO BE FIGHTING A BATTLE THAT I CAN’T WIN

YOU CAN BLAME IT ON LOVE BUT I THINK IT’S A SIN

I’VE OPENED MY EYES... I’VE SEEN THROUGH YOUR LIES

AND I’LL NEVER BELIEVE YOU

 

SO NOW YOU FINALLY TELL ME

HOW YOU’VE COME TO LIVE

YOU PLAYED ME FOR THE FOOL I WAS

AND THAT I CAN’T FORGIVE

 

SO NOW YOUR SECRET’S OUT

WHAT’S LEFT TO TALK ABOUT

THE LINE’S DRAWN IN THE SAND

 

I’VE BEEN FIGHTING A BATTLE THAT I CAN’T WIN

YOU CAN BLAME IT ON LOVE BUT I THINK IT’S A SIN

I’VE OPENED MY EYES... I’VE SEEN THROUGH YOUR LIES

           

AND I’LL NEVER BELIEVE YOU

I’LL NEVER BELIEVE YOU...

I’LL NEVER BELIEVE YOU AGAIN

 

 

Suddenly a Woman

Where have all the years gone – Where have all the tears gone from your younger days

It seems like yesterday – A fragile little girl was trying to find her way

 

Suddenly a woman – Suddenly an angel for all eyes to see

Suddenly a woman – I closed my eyes and time passed right in front of me

 

Who is that I see now – Who is here with me now, is that really you

The fire that glows inside – Burns brighter as the years just melt away your youth

 

Suddenly a woman – Suddenly an angel for all eyes to see

Suddenly a woman – I closed my eyes and time passed right in front of me

 

How was I to know then – How the years would flow then I just couldn’t tell

It happened oh so fast – You’ve grown beyond the stages that I used to know so well

 

Tracing through the footsteps of your younger days – A sentimental journey in my mind

I can see you’ve finally seemed to find your way – But I still see the child left behind

 

Daddy’s little girl – Keeps dancing in her innocence all wild and free

Ages passed me by – And all at once you’re grown and I’ve been blind to see

 

Suddenly a woman – Suddenly an angel for all eyes to see

Suddenly a woman – I closed my eyes and time passed right in front of me

 

Suddenly a woman / Suddenly a woman / Suddenly a woman

 

 

What Did I Do to Deserve You

What did I do to deserve you – I’m not worthy of your love

Nothing can ever unnerve you – Nothing that you can’t rise above

 

Can you – Be real – I never imagined I’d have it this way

And I know – What I feel – Well there’s something about all the things that you say to make me smile

 

You’re my Rock of Gibraltar – How do you do all the things that you do

How come you never falter – Lifting me up when I feel blue

 

Can you – Be real – I never imagined I’d have it this way

And I know – What I feel – Well there’s something about all the things that you say to make me smile

 

What did I do to deserve you – What did I do to deserve you

You’re my inspiration – To wake up every day

 

Nothing fazes you, you’ve the strength of a lion and you’re pulling more than your weight

No doubt about it, you’re one of a kind – And I can’t believe in my fate – No I can’t believe in my fate

 

Seems like a dream that I found you – You’re not above doing anything right

And baby when I am around you – Your faith and your love are my guiding light

 

Can you – Be Real – I never imagined I’d have it this way

And I know – What I feel – Oh there’s something about all the things that you say make me smile

What did I do to deserve you – What did I do to deserve you – What did I do to deserve you…  

This way

 

 

Like a Father and Son

From the moment they say “it’s a boy” an indelible bond is formed

The family name, it goes on and a father’s heart is warmed

There’s a special connection that touches the soul from the very start

There’s a common thread that ties the spirit of two beating hearts

 

Like the wind and the rain / Like a heart on a chain

Like a song and a dance / Like a perfect romance…

Like the seasons that change / Like a home on the range

Like a hole in one…………..Like a father and son

 

The apple that falls from the branch never ventures too far from the tree

A chip off the old block, he follows the footsteps deliberately

Two peas in a pod, There’s a place in the stars where they both reside

They talk on a level where nobody else can read the lines

 

Like the wind and the rain / Like a heart on a chain

Like a song and a dance / Like a perfect romance…

Like the seasons that change / Like a home on the range

Like a hole in one…………..Like a father and son

                                                         

Time after time, moving mountains together

They’re friends for life

Carrying forward a right of succession

The legacy thrives … Through a father and son

 

Look in the mirror and see the image staring back at you

It may look familiar, The likeness it grows with age, it’s true

But more than appearance, Your manner and presence resemble someone

A diamond’s forever and so is the love of a father and son

 

Like the wind and the rain / Like a heart on a chain

Like a song and a dance / Like a perfect romance…

Like the seasons that change / Like a home on the range

Like a hole in one…………..

 

Like the wind and the rain / Like a heart on a chain

Like a song and a dance / Like a perfect romance…

Like the seasons that change / Like a home on the range

Like a hole in one


Like a father and son

Like a father and son

Like a father and son

 

 

 

Borrowed Time

When I think – of your smile / It makes me glad – for a while       

I was yours – You were mine / Now I look – Back in time                 

We were young – And alive / But it was only for a while

We were living on borrowed time

 

Every – one – That you touched  /  Oh they miss you so much

Even those – Who can’t say / that they knew you this way      

We were young – And alive / But it was only for a while

We were living on borrowed time

 

Then you walked away – On that cold December day

I don’t know where I am – I haven’t found my way

It seems a bitter end – Who knows what might’ve been

Now I’m living on borrowed time

 

All the love – That we shared / Every step – You were there

Takes me back – To the day / When I thought – You would stay

We were young – And alive / But it was only for a while

We were living on borrowed time

 

I can’t help missing you / I can’t turn off the tears

There was so much we had left to do / I wish I could turn back the years

 

Now I think – of your smile / But I’m sad – All the while

I was yours – You were mine / Then it all – Went awry

We were young – And alive / But it was only for a while

We were living on borrowed time

I’m living on borrowed time

I’m living on borrowed time

 

 

I'll Be With You

Now it’s time to go to bed – Time to rest your weary head

Tomorrow is another day – So go to sleep – My little one

 

Let’s turn down the light – The stars they shine and the moon is bright

Close your eyes right now – And you can dream – My little one

 

I’ll be with you through the night – I’ll be with you in the morning

I’ll be with you as you go through life – To light the way – And watch you grow

           

In your busy little world – There’s so much you have to learn

So keep an open mind – And find your way – My little one

 

When you wake up you can play – It’ll be such a lovely day

I may be gone but I’m never far – Away – My little one

 

I’ll be with you through the night – I’ll be with you in the morning

I’ll be with you as you go through life – To light the way – And watch you grow

 

So, remember this day – And remember what I say

The choices that you make – Will follow you – My little one

 

And hear my words tonight – Things are gonna be so very right                     

Just close your eyes and think of me – I’ll be right here – My little one

 

I’ll be with you through the night – I’ll be with you in the morning

I’ll be with you as you go through life – To light the way – And watch you grow

I’ll  light the way – And watch you grow

My little one

 

 

The Music Lives On

Nothing lasts forever, all good things must end

The good times and the heartache, on all the sun will set

It’s been a lifelong journey, to find where I belong

Now with mixed emotions, I’m playing - my last song

 

The curtain call is coming, here’s my final bow

If I did an encore, would you listen anyhow?

And when my song is over, the stage will fade from view

But life goes on forever, the house lights - they burn for you

 

But I’ll be in your heart

Through the music that touched me

I’ll be etched in your mind

When the crowd has gone

When you hear the songs                               

You will be reminded

The show is over now

But the music lives on

 

When my story’s written, I hope the words are kind

Remembering the good times, and the treasures left behind

I’m not proud of everything, I have my regrets

I’m happy for the good I did, and sorry - for the rest

 

But I’ll be in your heart

Through the music that touched me

I’ll be etched in your mind

When the crowd has gone

When you hear the songs                               

You will be reminded

The show is over now

But the music lives on

                             

Raise a glass to the memories

Raise a glass tonight

Let me hear you call my name once more

Before we say good-bye

A toast to the music

A toast to the words

And here’s to the band playing

Like we’ve never heard

 

Now I look upon the faces, as you watch my final act

I hope I’ve entertained you, and I hope I’ve made you laugh

So thank you for the memories, and the time we’ve had to spend

Keep the faith within your heart, our love – It will never end
