1 Surrender Read

You give me a lovin' both strong and both true.
You give me a lovin' my heart's wrapped in you.
I see your sweet smile parade 'fore my eyes,
I hang on your pauses, I melt in your sighs.
Wanna' go with this feeling wherever it leads
'Cause my heart is the garden, your love is the seed.
Though at times I may frighten, at times pull away,
My heart is the victor, my mind's got to say:

Surrender, I surrender, surrender to love.

A tear dropped this morning as you drove away,
A tear born in sadness and joy I must say.
Going back between empty, and forth to quite full,
In the mystery of love the heart's got to rule.
So I entered the space that I know as alone,
I sought for the peace I had made on my own.
I prayed to the heavens inside and above,
Came back "choose separation, or will you choose love?"

Surrender, I surrender, surrender to love.

I have stared in the glistening ponds of your soul,
Eyes filled with your wonder, eyes filled with your glow,
That pours 'cross your features, embraces your smile,
So filled with your sweetness, so empty of guile.
Wanna' go for it sweet one, wanna go all the way,
Wanna' get to the finish by taking each day.
Gonna' wake in the morning with you on my mind,
Go to bed in the evening and say one more time...

Surrender, I surrender, sweet surrender to love.

2 Sail Away Read

I lie in your arms, harbor safe and warm.
Like nets you've cast at sea, you gather all of me

I float on the sea of your love,
The clouds and the sun swim above,
And I just keep staring into your sweet eyes -
Gonna' sail away, gonna' sail away....

The curve of your smile I'll study for awhile.
I'll stroke you as you lie. I'll drink in all your sighs

I float on the sea of your love,
The clouds and the sun swim above,
And I just keep staring into your sweet eyes -
Gonna' sail away, gonna' sail away....

To want you, to need you the sages say is wrong,
If I hope for the future I'll flounder before long,
But I just can't stop it, I smolder in my soul,
With you here beside me at once I'm half and whole.

Cease all sense of time, your heartbeat my chime
Your breath sweet life to me, your eyes in which I see
Me float on the sea of your love,
The clouds and the sun swim above,

And I just keep staring into your sweet eyes -
Gonna' sail away, gonna' sail away....
And I just keep staring into your sweet eyes -
Gonna' sail away, gonna' sail away....

3 Who Says? Read

Note: First song for Mark

Who says love isn't easy? You've come to prove it ain't so.
To love you, Baby is easier than anything else that I've known.

You ask "Hey, will you love me?" I say I will to the end,
In you I've found so much pleasure, in you I've found more than a friend.

You were like a buried treasure hidden deep beneath the sand,
But I dug you and I'm still digging you,
Holding you right in the palm of my hand!

You've made me feel like a princess, my knight in armor has come,
I know now that fairy tales happen, 'cause we're in the middle of one.

(instrumental break)

Yeah, you were like a buried treasure hidden deep beneath the sand,
But I dug you and I'm still digging you,
Holding you tight in the palm of my hand!

You ask "Hey, will you love me?" I say I will to the end,
In you I've found such a goldmine, so much more than a friend.
Who says love isn't easy? Ooh Babe, they never met you.
Your sweetness makes being with you the easiest thing, the easiest thing that I do.

4 Oh, Amy Read

Oh Amy, my Amy, you carry me to heaven, I've rarely been before.
Oh Amy, your sweet love is filling me, and all I'm asking for is more.
Oh Amy, my Amy, love lights your face. I tremble I know its meant for me.
Oh Amy, sweet Amy, lost in your gaze. I close my eyes and still you smile for me.

Oh God, please grant me strength to go
Along this narrow path of love.
And if I frighten and don't know,
Shine away my darkness from above.

Oh Amy, the night brings her perfumed breeze, she seeks to cool our passion with her touch.
But passion, it shakes me, it weakens the knees. Oh Amy, I've never loved this much.

I bow, and pray my silent prayer,
That you and I will travel on as one.
Though mist may sometimes fill the air,
Our love will burn it like the morning sun.

Oh Amy, in quiet you call to me, I dream you chant love's ancient song.
Oh Amy, the rapture is filling me, I can't believe I've slept here for so long.
Oh Amy, the rapture is filling me, I can't believe I've slept here for so long.

5 Teddy Bear Read

You're no fun, so there! I just gotta' squeeze my teddy bear,
Sweet loving care is all I gotta' give a teddy bear.

Well, people tell me that I should like boys,
But I can't help it if I like stuffed toys,
They're a lot more fun, they've got a lot more sense,
And they listen to me when I talk to them.

Sweet loving care is all I gotta' give a teddy bear.
Warm fur, soft hair, I just gotta' squeeze my teddy bear.

When I gotta' get up early in the day,
And I say "Teddy, wish I could stay,
"You're so lucky, get to lay in bed,"
He says "Boogie on, Baby, you're a real good kid!"

Oh boy, wowee, the only one I love is Teddy.
What fun for me, I just wanna' squeeze my teddy.

Warm fur, soft hair, I just gotta' squeeze my teddy bear,
Sweet loving care is all I gotta' give a teddy bear.

When I'm feeling kinda' sleepy, crawlin' underneath the blankey,
And I wanna' know what's cookin', nothin' much, but he's good lookin'.
He's only full of stuffin' but he gives me all the lovin' I need, oohwee!

Warm fur, soft hair, I just gotta' squeeze my teddy bear,
Sweet loving care is all I gotta' feed a teddy bear.

Oh boy, wowee! The only one I love is Teddy,
What fun for me, a love affair with Teddy.
Just gotta' squeeze my teddy bear,
"Come on, Baby, squeeze your teddy bear!"
Just gotta' squeeze my teddy bear.

6 Walking Alone In Daydream Read

Walking alone through the wood,
Feeling terribly misunderstood,
And thinking up stories that sound mighty good,
And oh, if I could be with him I would.
Oh, if I could be with him I would.

Walking along on the beach, imagining one next to me,
Two sets of footprints would follow our feet,
Then wash away as the water would reach
Up to the sand on the shore of the beach.

Hiding underneath your windowsill, I'd die if you caught me,
Yet still, being near to you gives me such thrill,
Oh, I hide in the shadows a captive at will
As I sit patiently under your windowsill.

Window flies open, a light in my eyes fills me with terror,
But you only smile, saying "C'mon Love, you mustn't be shy.
''Come take my hand and we'll go for a ride,
"And as in your daydream you'll sit at my side.''

Riding with you in your car, put 'er in park hey, hey,
We could go far. It's just you and me in your car
Falling and falling fast, fools that we are,
Riding a spiraling, falling star.

Dawn turns to daylight, my head on your chest,
Inhaling your heartbeat, no, I'm not obsessed!
But this night together's been one of the best,
And nothing can put this old daydream to rest.
Oh, what can put this old daydream to rest?

Walking alone down my street, I've been imagining
Wonderful things. Waiting for him to turn onto my street
Or just meet me again in daydream,
Oh, do meet me again in daydream,
Oh, do meet me again in daydream.

7 We'll Make It Through Somehow Read

Refrain:
We'll make it through somehow, we'll make it through somehow,
Through the dark and through the rain.
The sun is bound to shine, though maybe time to time
The clouds may come our way.

Seems the darkness is hangin'on you.
Seems the sunshine will never burst through.
But Love, a light shines so deep within you,
And I can tell you true:

Refrain 

Seems this burden is crushing our knees.
Seems that Heaven can't hear our pleas.
But God is watching and here's what he sees:
Sweet life for you and me.

Refrain  

Now you can grope through darkness, or you can cling to light.
In you there's such a rightness, it shines out through the night.

Refrain

The sun is bound to shine, oh yes, it's bound to shine,
And it will melt these clouds away, yes it will melt these clouds away.

8 No Pity Read

Is it that I need no pity, is this some form of jealousy ?
Is it that I'm sitting pretty that you don't care enough about me ?
No, I'm not in the streets and begging, can ask for nothing much at all,
Except some loving arms around me, and I wonder if you even know how!

Somebody, Somebody calls me His own,
But humanly speaking, I need someone to hold.

You're out to save the world's unfortunates, to bring 'em love and hope and peace,
Hey, I would like to help you do that, too, but Buster you forgot about me!

(Guitar break)

Oh, Somebody, Somebody calls me His own,
But humanly speaking, I need someone to hold.

You think I sit around do nothing all day, and live inside some perfect dream.
Better re-evaluate your friend, my friend, reality means something to me.
Is it that I need no pity, is this some form of jealousy ?
Is it that I'm sitting pretty, that you don't care enough about me ?
That you don't care enough about me, that you don't care enough about me,
No, you don't care enough about me!

9 Whippoorwill Read

There's a tree on a hill where the young lovers meet
To hold hands, to court and to spark.
On a branch high above singing mournful and sweet,
The whippoorwill calls in the dark.

Refrain:
Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, sing your sad lonely song,
Lullaby for the one who is lost,
Sing of hearts false and true, sing of love deep and strong,
Sing of passion and how much it costs.

Sing of Johnny and Sue and that morning in May
They carved out their vows on the tree.
How Sue held Johnny tight and she begged him to stay,
How he sailed off and sank in the sea.

Refrain

Sing of Myrna and Slim and the night that he swore
He'd love her 'til his dying day.
Sing of how she conceived and the child that she bore,
He denied her and turned her away.

Refrain

Saddest of all is the low mournful call
For the love lost that once was his own.
Hear the burst of the gun, see her falter and fall,
From this branch now he's singing alone.

Refrain

10 I'm Flying Read

Note: (For my friend Jean Seberg, who at 17, flew from my hometown to star as Joan of Arc for Otto Preminger. Though her end was tragic, her beauty lit up the Screen and touched the heart. )

Nothing's gonna' stop me now, I see it all before me now, I'm flying.
I may be from this damn hick town, but I won't let that keep me down, I'm flying.
Dreamer's what they all call me, but I know what I'm meant to be, I'm flying.
To be a part of all the lights, to shine among the stars at night, I'm flying.

Chorus:
I gotta' go now, I gotta' go now, I gotta' get away
I gotta' go now, soon it will be too late
I gotta' go now, I gotta' go now, I gotta' get away
I gotta' go now, soon it will be too late.

They tell me marry, settle down, find a man to mow the lawn, start trying.
You've got the looks, you've got the class, grab a doc or lawyer fast, start trying.
Have a baby, maybe two, just like all the good girls do, start trying.
Can't they see, can't they tell, life that way's a living hell, like dying.

Chorus

Sure the stars shine in my eyes, I'll live my dreams instead of lies, I'm flying.
'Guess it means I'll go away, but I'll return in glory someday, I'm flying.
Now's the time, won't come again, grab the ring, avoid life plain, I'm flying.
Nothing's gonna' stop me now, I see it all before me now, I'm flying.

Chorus

I gotta' go now, soon it will be too late, (I'm flying)
I gotta' go now, soon it will be too late. (I'm flying)

11 Holy Boy Read

Oh, holy boy, with the face of an angel,
Oh, holy boy, conducting our bodies, sing praises,
Sweet holy boy, who lives behind our perception?
Do you know I want you, too? Can you tell I think of you?
Come and touch me once again, dear holy boy.

Everybody wants you I can tell, for I can read their actions well.
I too, desire and I know what lies behind their lavish show.
Do they know you're more than just a holy boy?
Do they know you're more than just a holy boy?

Oh, holy boy, a new song is arriving
Here deep inside, about a new truth that I'm finding.
Words can't describe this growing happy emotion,
But my pride begins to numb, and I feel I've just begun,
When you talk about that other Holy One.

Everybody's living for the light, and working hard to do it right,
Our heads are bowed, our hearts have sung "protect us from the evil
one."
Are you really such a wholly, holy boy?
Are you really such a wholly, holy boy?

Oh, holy boy, with the face of an angel,
Oh, holy boy, conducting our bodies, sing praises,
Sweet holy boy, who lives behind your profession?
Do you know I want you, too? Can you tell I think of you?
Come and touch me once again, dear holy boy.
Touch me once again, you holy boy.

12 Let Me Be Read

Sittin' by my window softly looking at the rain,
How I wish that all my tears could wash away the pain
Of all the world, and all this senseless pain and dying, but I know I can't.

Chorus:
So won't you let me be a light that opens up your eyes to see the glow of love.
For then we'll be like eagles soaring in the sky, shining from above.

If your burden's heavy, won't you let me ease your load,
Won't you let me wipe your sweating brow?
And if your bones are weak and weary, please come rest awhile,
And I will comfort you somehow.

Chorus

This is why I sing my songs, to soothe your aching souls,
And to let you feel my peace inside.
And all I want for us to know is we are always whole,
And our human love, we don't need to hide.

Chorus: repeat Chorus
