Moonlight on the Bay (Dave Wood)

I see you in the distance
Nonchalant in your own way
Your heart shines across the sea
Looking just like moonlight on the bay

You show such coy resistance
But I know I'll find a way
Find a pathway to your heart
In the shining moonlight on the bay

Getting lost while thinking about you
I imagine you across the ocean
Hoping for a lover's rendezvous
I'll wait if you come this way

So give in to my insistence
We'll turn darkness into day
Find a pathway to my heart
Through the glowing moonlight
On the bay

 

Welcome to My World  (Dave Wood)

Look over here
Come on this way
Let go of your fear
Embrace a new day
And welcome into my world
Can't I be your girl?

I know you致e been hurt
The shadow of pain
The tear on your shirt
Get off of that train
Your life can be renewed
Cause my world is here for you

Love can be better
Hey boy look and see
I'm better for you
And you're better for me
We'll go together
Like bread and wine
Nothing can be better
Or more fine

I know you've been hurt
The shadow of pain
The tear on your shirt
Get off that train
The change is best for you
And my world is here for you

 

Slowly  (Dave Wood)

Rushing every day
Passing cars
Speeding down the road
As Life goes by

Savoring your love
Must be done... slowly

Moving lane to lane
Destiny
Winding down the road
The exit passed me by

Savoring your love
Must be done... slowly

Life moves by so fast
I revel in your touch
Taking time for you
Makes me feel
Oh so young again

The rush I get from you
Every day
Is all the speed I need
It keeps me free

Savoring your love
Must be done... slowly

 

Bring Back My Day  (Nivo and Serge Rahoerson)

If one day you ever have to go
I値l try not to make you stay
You won稚 break my heart
You broke it long ago

You will leave me here with all my dreams
Maybe I値l love you and then
And if I dream real hard
They値l bring you back to me

And you値l wander through my dreams
I値l feel you near me
Like a sun not far away
And in the solace of the night
Just like a mirage
You値l bring back my day

Now the night痴 come and we池e all alone
And we致e loved another day
With my aching heart
I know you値l break again

Just repeat once more your love for me
Now the light has gone away
And hold me really tight
And help me pass the night

As you値l wander through my dreams
I値l feel you near me
I知 glad the sun痴 so far away
And in the solace of the night
Just here in your arms
You値l bring back my day

 

I Go the Road Alone  (Dave Wood)

I've walked other paths
But end up on this road again
Tried other ways
Just broken hearts and pain

Emptiness is all that I own
I go this road alone

I've had many loves
They never seem to work for me
I got what I need now
And shield myself from sorrows

Say my heart is made of stone
I go the road alone

I opened myself
Exposing everything to you
You took all I had
And left me standing empty

Shook my soul to the bone
I go the road alone

I saw you last night
Flash and style and vanity
Your life is fine wine
Sipped without the lonely

Drinkin' whiskey and gettin' stoned,
I go the road alone

 

You Took My Breath Away  (Dave Wood)

Free, free, I'm finally free

The day that we met
You took my breath
But now you're gone
I can breathe again
Farewell, and thanks for my oxygen

The day that we met
I lost my head
But now you're gone
It's back up top again
Farewell, I can think again

I'm free, I'm free, finally,
I'm finally free
Your shackles and chains are off of me
I'm finally free

The day that we met
I stumbled and fell
Now that you're gone
I'm outta that hell
Farewell, I can walk I can walk again

The day that we met
I couldn't speak
But now you're gone
I've found my lost voice
Farewell, I can shout out loud

(Chorus)

I am renewed
A lilting sparrow on a brand new day
Rise from the dew
Spread my wings, fly away

(Chorus)

Jump from the pan, and outta the fire
I'm free, I'm outta the mire
I'm free, I'm free, finally,
I'm finally free

You took my breath, now it's too late
'Cause I don't need to suffocate
