Where Can I Leave My Heart

Where Can I leave my heart
Where Can I leave my heart
So I won't have to feel this ache
Where can I put my head
I'm lost and I need a break
 
I hope time understands
And sends some rest
My life had other plans than this
 
Where can I leave my heart
I'll come for it in a day
Where can I find that light that shines
Somebody, point the way
 
Where can I leave my heart
Where can I put my head
Where is that light that shines
Lead me there

Without You
For a minute my heart felt afraid
For a minute my thoughts ran away
Without you, without you
 
For a couple of years you've stood by my side
Made me think I never want to go back to my life
Without you, without you
 
Love, love, love, love
 
For a minute I was feeling so overwhelmed
For a minute I expected my world to end
Without you, without you
 
With a house full of kids and a home full of love
Makes me realize I don't want to go on
Without you, without you
 
Love, love, love, love…

Love to Love
Love to love when bright shines brighter
Love to love you, then
Love to love when fond grows fonder
When you're my best friend
 
I was happy before
Now I'm two thousand times more
Since I met your beautiful face
 
Love to love when strong grows stronger
Love to love you, then
Love to love when true shines truer
When our hearts connect
 
I love my world in love with you
I love my world in love
I love my world shines bright with you
I love my world with you

See this Child
Weary and torn
Falling short
Hoping for good
See this heart
 
See this child
See this face divine
See this life
Feel my grace
 
Holding on
In times unsure
Loving our best
Hoping for more
 
See this child…

Your Song  
It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside
I'm not one of those girls who can easily hide
I don't have much money, but if I did
I'd buy a big house where we all could live
 
If I was a sculptor, and then again, no
A girl who makes potions in a traveling show
I know it's not much, but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you
 
And you can tell everybody that this is your song
It may be quite simple but, now that it's done
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
 
I sat on the rooftop, admired the moss
And I pondered why so many are cross
The sun's been so bright as I write this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on
 
And you can tell everybody that this is your song
It may be quite simple but, now that it's done
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

Masterpiece
I'm never too late, never too old to be won by his love
Never too gone, never alone from his watch
 
What I don't see is the masterpiece when all this is done
The colors smudge, the colors run
 
I didn't fit in, I didn't belong I thought
I wanted to run, he wanted me near his heart
 
What I don't see is the masterpiece when all this is done
The colors smudge, the colors run
 
Together, finer, clearer than my desire
Cleaner, lovelier, beautiful
 
I'm never too old, never too gone…
