Open your Eyes

Sometimes it pays to have your heart broken. You find that you’re not alone. Others have gone through similar things. Don’t keep it all inside, find some way to express how your feel about what you’re going through. The beauty’s in the journey and the journey sets you free. A wise friend told me that. It’s true. We are all artists…writers, singers, painters, dancers, angels. I give you these songs from my heart.

The best to you, Sophie

ALL THAT HE WANTS

I’VE BEEN LOOKING ALL OVER FOR “SKETCHES OF SPAIN”
IT WAS ONLY THE THIRD RECORD STORE I’D BEEN IN
HE TOLD ME HE THOUGHT IT COULD BE OUT OF PRINT
AND SUGGESTED I TRY A MORE RECENT HIT
I SAID IT’S A PRESENT FOR A FRIEND OF MINE
HE DOESN’T SUSPECT IT’LL BE A SURPRISE
WE OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO FIND IT SOMEWHERE
LET ME CHECK THE COMPUTER AND SEE IF IT’S THERE
IT’S GOTTA BE THERE, IT’S GOTTA BE THERE
ALL THAT HE WANTS IS “SKETCHES OF SPAIN”
TO REPLACE THE ONE HE LENT TO A FRIEND
ALL THAT HE WANTS, ALL THAT HE WANTS, ALL THAT HE WANTS
IS SKETCHES OF SPAIN” “SKETCHES OF SPAIN”
SOME MUSIC IS SHALLOW AND FALLS BY THE WAY
THE TREND OF THE FASHION SUCCEEDS IN IT’S PLACE
BUT OTHER SONGS TAKES YOU BY STORM
A DAY IN YOUR LIFE A LEGEND IS BORN
WE’RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ANSWERS AND LUCKY BREAKS
SOMETIMES ALL I WANT IS A CHANCE TO FIX MY MISTAKES
WHEN I’M TIRED FROM SEARCHING AND THE DAY IS THROUGH
I’M ALRIGHT WHEN I FIND A FRIEND IN A TUNE
IT’S GOTTA BE THERE, IT’S GOTTA BE THERE

LUKE

YOU SAID THEY ALMOST CALLED YOU LUKE
AND YOU KIND OF WISH THEY HAD
BUT THEY DECIDED TO STICK WITH TRADITION
AND NAMED YOU AFTER YOUR DAD
NOW YOU’RE WORKING FOR THE CITY
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE FAMILY
YOU FIGHT FOR JUSTICE FOR STRANGERS
BUT YOU CAN’T FIND ANY FOR ME
WAS IT LUKE I MET AT THE STATION DOWNTOWN
WHO I SWEAR I’D KNOWN SOMEWHERE BEFORE
WAS IT LUKE WHO SANG THOSE BEAUTIFUL SONGS
AND KISSED ME ON THE DANCE FLOOR
WAS IT LUKE WHO SAID IT’LL BE ALRIGHT
SAID HE’D NEVER KNOWN LOVE SO KIND
WAS IT LUKE WHO HELD ME THROUGH THE NIGHT
ON THE FOURTH OF JULY
OH I WISH THEY’D CALLED YOU LUKE
I WISH THEY’D CALLED YOU LUKE
SOME PEOPLE LIVE LIFE SO PERFECTLY
SETTLED DOWN BY TWENTY THREE
BUT I’VE MADE MISTAKES AND I’VE TAKEN SOME TURNS
I’VE SEEN HEARTS BREAK AND I’VE SEEN LOVE BURN
YOU SAID YOU’RE THE ONE I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR
TRUE LOVE CAN CONQUER THE PAIN
WE THOUGHT IT WAS STRONG ENOUGH TO MOVE MOUNTAINS
AND SHINE THROUGH THE RAIN
OH I WISH THEY’D CALLED YOU LUKE
I WISH THEY’D CALLED YOU LUKE

THE WAY YOU DRIVE YOUR CAR

YOU KEEP ME AT A DISTANCE
PLAYING A GUESSING GAME
THIS MUST BE MY WEAKNESS
NEVER KNOWING WHERE I STAND
I KNOW I BRING THIS ON MYSELF
WHEN I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES
YOU TELL ME ONE THING
THEN YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND
NOW YOU DON’T MAKE IT EASY ON ME
YOU DON’T MAKE IT HARD
YOU JUST DRIVE ME CRAZY
LIKE THE WAY YOU DRIVE YOUR CAR
THE FIRST TIME I MET YOU
I GUESS I DUG MY OWN GRAVE
I NEVER SHOULD HAVE LET YOU
HAVE IT ALL YOUR OWN WAY
I MUST HAVE LOST MY GRIP
AND I FELL HEAD OVER MY HEELS
MADE IT MUCH TOO EASY FOR YOU
TO NEGOTIATE A DEAL
YOU DON’T MAKE IT EASY ON ME
YOU DON’T MAKE IT HARD
YOU JUST DRIVE ME CRAZY
LIKE THE WAY YOU DRIVE YOUR CAR
YOU THINK YOU CAR’S A WOMAN
AND YOUR WOMAN’S A BEER IN A BAR
I’M THE ONE WHO’S CRAZY
BUT NOW IT’S GONE TOO FAR
CAUSE SOMETIMES YOU’RE SO RECKLESS
I CAN’T CATCH MY BREATH
AND SOMETIMES YOU’RE SO GENTLE
IT SCARES ME HALF TO DEATH
WHEN I THINK OF LEAVING YOU
PACK MY BAGS AND GO
YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE IN ME
AND STOP ME AT THE DOOR
WELL YOU DON’T MAKE IT EASY ON ME
YOU DON’T MAKE IT HARD
YOU JUST DRIVE ME CRAZY
LIKE THE WAY YOU DRIVE YOUR CAR

HER WILDEST DREAMS

SHE CAME FROM A FARM OUTSIDE OF NASHVILLE
PACKED UP HER CHARMS AND HIT THE ROAD
SHE DROVE TO THE COAST
AND SAT THERE LOOKING AT THE OCEAN
IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S ACTING IN THE MOVIES
IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S GOT A HANDSOME BEAU
IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S FINDING OUT THE ANSWERS
SHE’S HAPPY LIVING FOR HER WILDEST DREAMS
LA’S NOT THE EASIEST PLACE TO SETTLE DOWN
STRANGERS GETTING STRANGER BY THE DAY
SHE’S TENDING A BAR
AND WORKING HARD TO MAKE ENDS MEET
BUT IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S ACTING IN THE MOVIES
IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S GOT A HANDSOME BEAU
IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S FINDING OUT THE ANSWERS
SHE’S HAPPY LIVING FOR HER WILDEST DREAMS
NOW PEOPLE COME AND GO
THAT’S SOMETHING WE ALL KNOW
AND SOME WILL TREAT YOU BETTER THAN THE OTHERS
BUT DREAMS MUST BE TOLD
AND QUESTIONS MUST BE ANSWERED
SO LOVE CAN HAVE A REASON
TO HOLD ON…HOLD ON
IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S ACTING IN THE MOVIES
IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S GOT A HANDSOME BEAU
IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
SHE’S FINDING OUT THE ANSWERS
SHE’S HAPPY LIVING FOR HER WILDEST DREAMS

LIGHTHOUSE IN A STORM

WHEN THE WORLD IS ON YOUR SHOULDERS
AND THE WEIGHT IS SINKING LOW
WHEN YOU GET THAT LOST FORGOTTEN FEELING
THERE’S SOMETHING YOU SHOULD ALWAYS KNOW
I’LL BE THERE BEFORE YOU CALL ME
LIKE AN OLD FAMILIAR SONG
LIGHT THE WAY AND OFFER REFUGE
GIVE YOU STRENGTH AND GUIDE YOU HOME
LIKE A LIGHTHOUSE IN A STORM
LIKE A LIGHTHOUSE IN A STORM
I’LL KEEP YOU SAFE AND WARM
BABY YOU’VE BECOME A PART OF ME
BECAUSE I’VE LOVED YOU FOR SO LONG
I’VE ALWAY COME TO YOU FOR ANSWERS
NOW IT’S MY TURN TO BE STRONG
SO I’LL BE THERE BEFORE YOU CALL ME
LIKE THAT OLD FAMILIAR SONG
LIGHT THE WAY AND OFFER REFUGE
GIVE YOU STRENGTH AND GUIDE YOU HOME
PEOPLE TURN AROUND AND GO THEIR SEPARATE WAYS
EVEN THOUGH THEY PLANNED TO STAY TOGETHER
YOU AND I CAN STAND THE TEST OF TIME
AND TIDLE WAVES
LOVE CAN LAST FOREVER
LIKE A LIGHTHOUSE IN A STORM
LIKE A LIGHTHOUSE IN A STORM
I’LL KEEP YOU SAFE AND WARM

OPEN YOUR EYES

BABY I NEVER KNEW YOU WORRIED SO MUCH
THOUGHT I WAS PROVING MY LOVE WITH EVERY TOUCH
OH I WANNA MAKE IT UP TO YOU
I CAN’T THINK OF BREAKING UP WITH YOU
OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU
OPEN YOUR EYES AND KNOW THAT I’VE BEEN TRUE
OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU
I LOVE YOU ONLY YOU
BABY I KNOW WE’VE GOT THINGS TO TALK ABOUT ABOUT
WE’VE GOT HOPES AND DREAMS TO FIGURE OUT
I BELIEVE OUR LOVE IS WORTH THE TROUBLE
IT’S STRONGER THAN THE STRUGGLE
OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU
OPEN YOUR EYES AND KNOW THAT I’VE BEEN TRUE
OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU
I LOVE YOU ONLY YOU
LONG TIME AGO I MADE A WISH ON A STAR
AND I KNOW IT MIGHT SOUND SIMPLE BUT IT’S TRUE
SINCE THEN I FOUND A PLACE
FOR EVERY PART OF ME BUT MY HEART
NOW I KNOW MY HEART BELONGS WITH YOU

MAGIC AND OTHER DREAMS

THE CIRCUS MADE ME LAUGH ALOT
THE CIRCUS MADE ME CRY
I KEPT THE MAGIC AND OTHER DREAMS I GOT
THAT NEVER MET THE EYE
THE CIRCUS SAID COME FALL IN LOVE
AND SO I DID I FELL
ALL THE WAY FROM THERE TO HERE
AND THEN I LIVED TO TELL
CHORUS…
STAND UP IN THE CURRENT
GO AGAINST THE FLOW
FORGET THE THINGS THAT SCARE YOU
AND BANK ON WHAT YOU KNOW
LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT
LOVE IS WHAT WE GIVE
TIME’S WHAT WE CAN TAKE FROM IT
AND DREAMS ARE HOW WE LIVE
HOW WE LIVE
MUST HAVE BEEN MY HEART I FOLLOWED THERE
MUST HAVE BEEN MY SOUL THAT SAW
SCENES LIKE THIS AREN’T EVERYWHERE
THE MAGIC THE DREAMS AND ALL
COME AND RUN AWAY WITH ME
COME AND LIVE THIS LIFE
HELP US SET THESE SPIRITS FREE
IF ONLY FOR A NIGHT
CHORUS…
HE JUMPED FROM HORSE TO GALLOPING
SHE BALANCED ON THE WIRE
THEY DANCED TOGETHER ON THE ROPES
HE JUGGLED WITH THE FIRE
I COULD NEVER MATCH THEIR COURAGE
OR DO THAT TYPE OF THING
BUT THIS SONG IS FOR THE CIRCUS
THE MAGIC AND OTHER DREAMS

SUDDENLY IT’S SPRING

I THINK OF THINGS TO SAY TO YOU
AND MELODIES TO SING
I SEE YOU SMILING BACK AT ME
SUDDENLY IT’S SPRING
COLD AND SNOW HAVE COME AND GONE
NOW THE SUN’S IN EVERYTHING
I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG
SUDDENLY IT’S SPRING
PEOPLE WILL TRY TELL YOU
HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE
THEY’LL SAY IT’S ALL WRONG
WHEN YOU KNOW IT’S RIGHT
PEOPLE WILL SAY YOU NEED TO HEAR
THE ANGELS SING
BUT YOU JUST HAVE TO CALL MY NAME
SUDDENLY IT’S SPRING
WHEN I’M FAR AWAY FROM YOU
WITH TIME AND MILES BETWEEN
I THINK OF HOME AND THINGS WE DO
SUDDENLY IT’S SPRING
DON’T YOU KNOW I’VE TRIED TO BE
THE ONLY ONE YOU NEED
EVERY TIME YOU REACH FOR ME
SUDDENLY IT’S SPRING
OH I CAN STAND ALONE IN THE COLD WEATHER IF I HAVE TO
BUT I CAN THINK OF BETTER THINGS TO DO
LOVE IS A FIRE WHEN WE’RE TOGETHER
AND I AM ALWAYS COMING HOME TO YOU

ONCE IN A LIFETIME

ONCE IN A LIFETIME YOU FIND IT
SOMEONE WHO’S PERFECT FOR YOU
THEN YOU BUILD ALL YOUR MANSIONS AROUND THEM
AND YOU PAINT ALL THE CEILINGS SKY BLUE
NOTHING CAN STAND IN THE WAY OF YOUR DREAMS
AND THE CUPBOARDS ARE FILLING WITH PLENTY OF THINGS
ONCE IN A LIFETIME IT HAPPENS
SOMEONE LOOKS THROUGH TO YOUR SOUL
AND ONE KISS IS MUCH MORE THAN YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD BE
AND YOU FINALLY FEEL PART OF A WHOLE
NOTHING CAN STAND IN THE WAY OF YOUR DREAMS
AND THE CUPBOARDS ARE FILLING WITH PLENTY OF THINGS
YOU KNOW THIS IS SOMEONE YOU’VE KNOWN FOR ALL TIME
AND YOU’VE TAKEN YOUR HEART AND PUT IT ON THE LINE
AND YOU’RE WILLING TO GO TO THE ENDS OF THIS WORLD
ON A ONCE IN A LIFETIME ROAD
OH ONCE IN A LIFETIME YOU FIND IT
ONLY ONCE IN A LIFETIME YOU FIND IT

WHEN WE’RE OLD

IF I COULD PROMISE THAT YOUR HEART WON’T BREAK
AND MAKE UP FOR ALL THE MISTAKES I’VE MADE
IF I COULD HAVE YOUR LOVE TO LIGHT MY SOUL
THEN MAYBE I’D BE WITH YOU WHEN WE’RE OLD
IF A DREAM WAS SOMETHING WE COULD LIVE
AND THE PAST WAS NOT SO HARD TO FORGIVE
AND IF THE TRUTH WAS EASIER TO BEHOLD
THEN MAYBE I’D BE WITH YOU WHEN WE’RE OLD
WELL IT’S LOVE THAT MAKES THIS WORLD GO ROUND
AND LOVE IS TRULEY WHAT WE FOUND
IF IT COULD STOP OUR HEARTS FROM TURNING COLD
THEN MAYBE I”D BE WITH YOU WHEN WE’RE OLD
IF IT COULD STOP OUT HEARTS FROM TURNING COLD
THEN MAYBE I’D BE WITH YOU WHEN WE’RE OLD
