Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone — by Lenny Kravitz

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone.
It’s not warm when she’s away.
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone,
and she’s always gone too long
anytime she goes away.
Wonder, this time where she’s gone.
Wonder if she’s gonna stay.
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone,
and this house just ain’t no home,
anytime she goes away.
And I know,I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, hey I ought to leave the young thing alone…


All My Life — by K-C & JoJo

I will never find another lover
sweeter than you, sweeter than you
I will never find another lover
more precious than you, more precious than you
Girl you are
Close to me like my mother,
Close to me like my father,
Close to me like my sister,
Close to me like my brother
You are the only one my everything
and for you this song I sing
All my life I prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes, I pray that you do love me too


Brown Eyed Girl — by Van Morrison

Hey where did we go,
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow,
Playin’ a new game,
Laughing and a running hey, hey
Skipping and a jumping
In the misty morning fog with
Our, our hearts a thumpin’ and you
My brown eyed girl,
You my brown eyed girl.
Whatever happened
To Tuesday and so slow
Going down the old mine
With a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing,
Hiding behind a rainbow’s wall,
Slipping and sliding
All along the waterfall, with you
My brown eyed girl,
You my brown eyed girl.
Do you remember when we used to sing,
Sha la la la la la la la la la la tee da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la tee da La tee da


Be My Baby, by John Lennon

The night we met I knew I needed you so
And if I had the chance I’d never let you go
So won’t you say you love me? I’ll make you so proud of me
We’ll make ‘em turn their heads every place we go
So won’t you, please?
(Be my, be my baby)
Be my little baby
(My one and only baby)
Say you’ll be my darlin’
(Be my, be my baby)
Be my baby now
(My one and only baby)
Whoa oh oh oh


Candle in the Wind, by Elton John

Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the treadmill
And they made you change your name
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did.


Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood — by Joe Cocker

Baby, do you understand me now,
Sometimes I feel a little mad.
But, don’t you know that no one alive
Can always be an angel.
When things go wrong I feel real bad.
I’m just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.
Baby, sometimes I’m so carefree,
With a joy that’s hard to hide.
And sometimes it seems that,
All I have to do is worry
And then you’re bound
To see my other side.
But, I’m just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.


Fire and Rain — by James Taylor

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Susanne the plans they made put an end to you
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
I just can’t remember who to send it to
I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I’d see you again
Won’t you look down upon me, jesus
You’ve got to help me make a stand
You’ve just got to see me through another day
My body’s aching and my time is at hand
And I won’t make it any other way
Oh, I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I’d see you again


How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) — by James Taylor

I needed the shelter of someone’s arms, and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs, and there you were
With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you


If You Asked Me To — by Celine Dion

Used to be that I believed in something
Used to be that I believed in love
It’s been a long time since I’ve had that feeling
I could love someone
I could trust someone
I said I’d never let nobody near my heart again darlin’
I said I’d never let nobody in
But if you asked me to
I just might change my mind
And let you in my life, forever
If you asked me to
I just might give my heart
And stay here in your arms forever
If you asked me to
If you asked me to


Live Like You Were Dying — by Tim McGraw

He said I was in my early forties
With a lot of life before me
And a moment came that stopped me on a dime
I spent most of the next days lookin’ at the x-rays
Talkin’ ‘bout the options and talkin’ ‘bout sweet time
Asked him when it sank in, that this might really be the real end
How’s it hit ya, when you get that kind of news
Man what ya do
And he says
I went sky divin’
I went rocky mountain climbin’
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull name Fumanchu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I’ve been denying
And he said someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin’


Miss You Like Crazy — by Natalie Cole

Even though it’s been so long
My love for you keeps going strong
I remember the things that we used to do
A kiss in the rain till the sun shine through
I tried to deny it but I’m still in love with you
I miss you like crazy
I miss you like crazy
Ever since you went away
Every hour of every day
I miss you like crazy
I miss you like crazy
No matter what I say or do
There’s just no getting over you


Precious Angel — by Bob Dylan

Precious angel, under the sun
How was I to know you’d be the one
To show me I was blinded, to show me I was gone
How weak was the foundation I was standing upon ?
Now there’s spiritual warfare and flesh and blood breaking down
Ya either got faith or ya got unbelief and there ain’t neutral ground
The enemy is subtle, how be it we are so deceived
When the truth’s in our hearts and we still don’t believe?
Shine you light, shine your light on me
Shine you light, shine your light on me
Shine you light, shine your light on me
Ya know I just couldn’t make it by myself
I’m a little too blind to see.


This Woman’s Work — by Kate Bush

Pray God you can cope.
I stand outside this woman’s work,
This woman’s world.
Ooh, it’s hard on the man,
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the father.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I should be crying, but I just can’t let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can’t stop thinking
Of all the things I should’ve said,
That I never said.
All the things we should’ve done,
That we never did.
All the things I should’ve given,
But I didn’t.
Oh, darling, make it go,
Make it go away.


You’re Still The One — by Shania Twain

When I first saw you, I saw love
And the first time you touched me, I felt love
And after all this time,
You’re still the one I love
Looks like we made it
Look how far we’ve come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we’d get there someday
They said, “I bet they’ll never make it”
But just look at us holding on
We’re still together still going strong
You’re still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You’re still the one I want for life
(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You’re still the one I kiss good night
