LYRICS

 

IN BETTER HANDS

I had a dream that I was falling

You came to rescue me

You must have heard me calling

Through my fitful sleep

You know I wish I could be grateful

Instead of full of fear

The kind of love that you gave me

I can't replace with tears

 

And though I'll never feel that love again-never again

Well I can take some kind of comfort in

Knowing your in better hands, in better hands

In better hands, in better hands

 

I had a dream about a fire

Burning out of control

There was no way for me to stop

Till it burned through my soul

There were a hundred people watching

As the night raged on

And everyone of us stood helpless

Through that bitter dawn

 

But oh the sky is in your shoes tonight

You can finally fly

All I can do is trust that you're all right

Knowing you're in better hands, in better hands

In better hands, in better hands

 

And though I'll never feel that love again, never again

Well, I can take some kind of comfort in

Knowing you're in better hands, in better hands

In better hands, in better hands...

THE LIGHTS OF PARIS

It was magnificent 

A city like I'd never seen

The sense of history

Was deeper than I could dream

I walked down those tiny streets

And the big, beautiful boulevards

With every step, I thought of you

But I could not stop the pain in my heart

 

And even the lights of Paris

Can never shine as bright

As the fire in your hair of red

And the magic in your eyes

And I will never forget it

Still it's you I'm thinking of

Cause even the lights of Paris

Can't outshine your love

 

Everywhere a masterpiece

I could not see them all

I saw the Mona Lisa though

It's amazing, she's so small

I stood in a room full of Vincent Van Goghs

I could not tear myself away

Struck by light and color

Pure genius on display


And even the art of Paris

Somewhere has to have a price

Unlike the fire in your hair of red

And the passion in your eyes

And though I'll never forget it

It's still you I'm dreaming of

Cause even the lights of Paris

Can't outshine your love

 

Even the lights of Paris

Can never shine as bright

As the fire in your hair of red

And the passion in your eyes

And if I could stay there forever

It would never be enough

Cause even the lights of Paris 

Can't outshine your love

No, even the lights of Paris

Can't outshine your love

I GOTTA BELIEVE IN SOMETHING

I can't figure it out as if I ever could

Everything I planned didn't work out like I thought it would

I've had my share of tragedy

I've felt the darkness cover me

Til I can't see

 

But I gotta believe in somethin'

I gotta believe in somethin'

That there's just plain nothin'

Don't sit right with me

I gotta hold on to somethin'

Gotta hold on to somethin'

Even if it's nothin' but a little dream

 

Some days just breathing is all that I can do

And I curse the disappearance of everything I knew

There's only so many tears I can cry

I need to point my soul to the light

So I can see

 

And I gotta believe in somethin'

I gotta believe in somethin'

That there's just plain nothin'

Don't seem right to me

I gotta hold on to somethin'

I gotta hold on to somethin'

I can't live with nothin' to believe

 

I can't figure it out as if I ever could

Everything I planned didn't work out like I thought it would

I've had my share of tragedy

I've felt the darkness cover me

Til I can't see

 

But I gotta believe in somethin'

I gotta believe in somethin'

That there's just plain nothin'

Don't sit right with me

I gotta hold on to somethin'

Gotta hold on to somethin'

Even if it's nothin' but a little dream

I gotta believe in somethin'

I gotta believe in somethin'

I can't live with nothin' to believe

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH

 

I curse the night I watched you slip away

Wouldn't have done no good to beg you to stay

You were here beside me and now you're gone

I'm just tryin' hard to carry on

But there's no rhythm in the rain

There's no magic in the moon

There's no power in this pain

Till somewhere between heaven and earth

I can find you again

 

Hearts are broken and dreams are lost

But I made a promise to love at any cost

Little did I know the price was so high

Losing forever in the blink of an eye

There's no rhythm in the rain

There's no wishes in the stars

There's no power in this pain

Till somewhere between heaven and earth

I can hold you again

 

If I could one more time

Feel your hand in mine

Hear your voice call my name

Whisper sweet goodnight

 

Then there'd be rhythm in the rain

There'd be magic in the moon

No such thing as love in vain

And somewhere between heaven and earth

You'd be with me again

And I could see you again

And I could hold you again, my baby

Somewhere between heaven and earth

Somewhere between heaven and earth

Somewhere between heaven and earth

I will see you again

A THOUSAND SHADES OF GREY

I sat down by the water

A cold wind in my face

The ground still hard with winter

Of Spring there was no trace

I swear I saw a blazing light

Ascending from the shore

With a color so familiar

I had seen this light before

 

Oh the nights seem endless

Like there never was a sun

With a still, pervading darkness

Of all you left undone

But there must be some great reward

For lasting out each day

For having to replace your love

With a thousand shades of grey

 

Oh can you hear me?

If I shout out loud above the raging sea

And oh can you see me?

If I stay here long enough will you come to me?

Will you come to me?

 

Well, you never kept your distance

You always told the truth

If there are such things as angels

Then you're my living proof

But now you live on higher ground

And I have lost my way

Well, I'd settle for your shadow

For my thousand shades of grey

 

Oh can you hear me?

If I shout out loud above the raging sea

And oh will you know me?

When winter finally frees my soul

And lets you come for me

And lets you come for me

 

A thousand shades of grey 

A thousand shades of grey 

 

And so unlike the seasons

My love will never change

But I've lost your summer laughter

To a thousand shades of grey...

WATER ON THE MOON

I watch the news on tv

The new breakthroughs in technology

Can you find your way back?

Will you find your way back?

 

If they find water on the moon

If they discover life of mars

Does it mean you'll be home soon?

Can I hold you in my arms?

I used to believe in miracles

 

There was a time when I could be

So inspired by life's mystery

Can I find my way back?

Will I find my way back?

 

If they find water on the moon

If they discover life of mars

Does it mean you'll be home soon?

Can I hold you in my arms?

I want to believe in miracles

 

Oh I know you're somewhere

Somewhere out there

If I could go I'd be there

I would be there

 

If they find water on the moon

If they discover life of mars

Does it mean you'll be home soon?

Can I hold you in my arms?

I want to believe in miracles

I need to believe in miracles

BOXING WITH GOD

My father stays in his room in South Carolina

He once was a mighty man

My mother feels the fear rise up inside her

She thinks it's the beginning of the end

 

He's boxing with God

He's showing all his stuff

And it may not be enough

But he's a fighter

He's boxing with God

He's goin' round for round

And he might be slowing down

But he's no quitter

 

My youngest child is now an angel

She lived her whole life in eleven years

I've never known anyone who was braver

I can't believe she's gone, but she is

 

She's boxing with God

She's showing all her stuff

And it wasn't quite enough

But she's a fighter

She's boxing with God

And it's all in the plan

I'll never understand 

But it don't matter

 

I get in my car and drive to New York City

I'm trying to lose myself on some highway

A mile for every teardrop that has fallen

I hope there's something there to ease my pain

 

I'm boxing with God

I'm showing all my stuff

And it's probably not enough

But I'm a fighter

I'm boxing with God

And I swear I see his face

Then He's gone without a trace

But I surrender

I'm boxing with God

I'm going round for round

And I might be goin' down

But I'm no quitter

THE END OF WISHFUL THINKING

Just outside of Baltimore, north on 95

Headed for New England trying not to close my eyes

I could pull right over and give myself a rest

But sleep's just one more stranger that I've added to my list

 

And it' too early in the morning

And too late in my life

To write a different story

To hope for different lines

And I guess it's finally hit me

What forever really means

That no amount of dreaming's

Gonna bring you back to me

And it's the end of wishful thinking

 

I've become some kind of vagabond I can not stay at home

It's hard to be with people and it' hard to be alone

So I just keep on drivin', searching for a clue

But I know I'll never find you no matter what I do

 

And it' too early in the morning

And too late in my life

To write a different story

To hope for different lines

And I guess it's finally hit me

What forever really means

That no amount of dreaming's

Gonna bring you back to me

And it's the end of wishful thinking...

 

Yesterday when I was leaving Tennessee

The sweetest little red bird came to say goodbye to me

And oh it made me smile for maybe it is true

That the end of wishful thinking will lead me back to you

 

And it' too early in the morning

And too late in my life

To write a different story

To hope for different lines

And I guess it's finally hit me

What forever really means

That no amount of dreaming's

Gonna bring you back to me

And it's the end of wishful thinking...

AS LONG AS YOU LOVE (SCARLET WINGS)

Time has a different meaning now

Since you found your scarlet wings

Forever seems like yesterday

But only angels know these things

 

I can hear your voice some times at night

And it echoes through the day

When my soul cries out from missing you

I remember what you say

 

As long as you love

You will see me in the stars

As you look up at the stars

I will be there

As long as you love

I will whisper in your ear

Little whispers you will hear

As long as you love

As long as you love

 

You are standing here beside me now

As I watch the children play

To those of us you left behind

You are never far away

 

Even Heaven can not hold your heart

For no boundaries love allows

So little angel spread those scarlet wings

As you whisper to me now

 

As long as you love

You will feel me in the sun

In the warming of the sun

I will be there

As long as you love

You will understand the rain

You must bless the falling rain

As long as you love

As long as you love

 

As long as you love

You will see me in the stars

As you look up at the stars

I will be there

As long as you love

I will whisper in your ear

Little whispers you will hear

As long as you love

As long as you love

BETTER THAN I'VE EVER BEEN

There's been a lot of things said about me

Since that awful day

I'm not the person that I used to be

And that I'll never be the same

Well that's true no doubt

But I know more now what life is about

And I

 

Laugh louder, cry harder

I take less time to make up my mind

And I think smarter, go slower

I know what I want and what I don't

I'll be better than I've ever been

Maybe I'll be better than I've ever been

 

If someone told me twenty years ago

That this would be my life

I'd lose the greatest gift that love can show

I'd have said "No, I won't survive!"

But don't count me out

Some times I'm stronger than I've ever felt

And I 

 

Laugh louder, cry harder

I take less time to make up my mind

And I think smarter, go slower

I know what I want and what I don't

I'll be better than I've ever been

Maybe I'll be better than I've ever been

 

There's a curious freedom rising up from the dark

Some kind of strength I've never had

Though I'd trade it in a second just to have you back

I gotta try to make some good out of the bad

So I

 

Laugh louder, cry harder

I take less time to make up my mind

And I think smarter, love deeper

I know what I want and what I don't

I'll be better than I've ever been

Better than I've ever been

 

Yeah, maybe I'll laugh, maybe I'll cry

I'll cry for you baby

I'll laugh for you baby

I'll live for you my baby
