ENOUGH

IT’S ENOUGH TO BE LOVED
IT’S ENOUGH TO BELONG TO SOMEONE LIKE I DO
IT’S ENOUGH TO BE LOVED
WHEN THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU LOVES YOU MORE THAN LIFE
JUST LIKE YOU DO

WHEN THE WORLD TURNS TOO FAST
AND THE FUTURE HAS BECOME THE PAST TOO SOON IT SEEMS
THAT WITH YOU TIME IS STILL
AND YOUR TOUCH CAN WARM THE COLDEST WINTER CHILL
ENOUGH FOR ME

YOU GIVE ME ALL THAT I’LL EVER NEED
IF I HAVE YOUR LOVE THAT’S MORE THAN ENOUGH

WHEN THE CLOUDS HIDE THE SUN
THERE IS LIGHT IN YOUR EYES THAT SHINE
AND THAT’S ENOUGH FOR ME

YOU GIVE ME ALL THAT I’LL EVER NEED
IF I HAVE YOUR LOVE THAT’S MORE THAN ENOUGH

WHEN THE DAY FADES TO NIGHT
YOU ARE HERE AND THE WORLD IS RIGHT
AND THAT’S ENOUGH FOR ME
(Oct 1, 2014)
AND YOU FOR ME

TIME FALLS AWAY AND MEMORIES SEEM TO FADE
BUT NOT FOR ME FOR I HAVE YOU
TO SHARE THEM ALL AND HOLD ONTO

THE YEARS WE WALKED DOWN DIFFERENT ROADS
HAVE LED US HERE AND NOW I KNOW
THAT IT WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO BE
ME FOR YOU AND YOU FOR ME

YOU AND I IT SEEMS ARE ONE ANOTHER’S DESTINY
THE TIME THAT PASSED HAS BROUGHT US HOME
AS ONE AT LAST FOREVER ON

THE YEARS WE WALKED DOWN DIFFERENT ROADS
HAVE LED US HERE AND NOW I KNOW
THAT IT WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO BE
ME FOR YOU AND YOU FOR ME

AND SO I COME TO YOU AND OFFER PEACE AND HOPE AND LIGHT
I GIVE TO YOU MY HEART AND SOUL
WITH ALL MY STRENGTH AND ALL MY MIGHT

THE YEARS WE WALKED DOWN DIFFERENT ROADS
HAVE LED US HERE AND NOW I KNOW
THAT IT WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO BE
ME FOR YOU AND YOU FOR ME
NOW I KNOW IT WAS MEANT TO BE
ME FOR YOU AND YOU FOR ME

I’VE HAD IT ALL ALONG

THERE AIN’T NOTHING LIKE A BACK PORCH AND A SECOND CUP OF COFFEE
ON A SUMMER SUNDAY MORNING WITH THE RADIO ON
AND MY THOUGHTS TEND TO WANDER TO NOWHERE IN PARTICULAR
WHILE I BEGIN TO HUM ALONG TO AN OLD LOVE SONG
I WONDER WHAT IT’D BE LIKE IF I EVER WON THE LOTTERY
I WONDER WHAT I’D SPEND THAT KIND OF MONEY ON
‘CAUSE THERE’S NOTHING ON MY WISH LIST THAT I DON’T ALREADY HAVE
AND I’VE HAD IT ALL ALONG

I KNOW I’M A SIMPLE MAN, AND I LIKE TO HAVE MY DOWN TIME
NOT MUCH HOLDS A CANDLE TO A LAZY AFTERNOON
I DON’T RECALL THE LAST TIME I WAS EVER IN A HURRY
AND I DON’T RECALL THE LAST TIME THAT I WANTED SOMETHING NEW
THE OLD CAR’S RUNNING PRETTY WELL, GOT A LITTLE MONEY PUT AWAY
AND THE WOMAN THAT I LOVE KNOWS ALL THE WORDS TO MY SONGS
CAN’T SAY THAT THERE’S ANYTHING THAT I’VE REALLY GOTTA HAVE
AND I’VE HAD IT ALL ALONG

THAT’S NOT TO SAY I DON’T ENJOY A ROAD TRIP NOW AND THEN
BUT IT DON’T TAKE TOO LONG BEFORE I’M HEADED HOME AGAIN

TO THE GLIDER ON MY BACK PORCH AND A COLD CAN OF HEINEKEN
AND THE WOMAN THAT I DREAM ABOUT SITTING BY MY SIDE
WE LISTEN TO THE BIRDS SING AS THE SUN SLOWLY FADES AWAY
AND THE DAY BEGINS TO GIVE WAY TO ANOTHER SUMMER NIGHT
SOME SAY THAT I MIGHT BE A LITTLE UNDER MOTIVATED
BUT I TEND TO DISAGREE, I BELIEVE THEY ARE WRONG
‘CAUSE THERE’S NOTHING THAT I REALLY NEED THAT I DON’T ALREADY HAVE
AND I’VE HAD IT ALL ALONG

COPPERTOWNE

HE CAME TO COPPERTOWNE UNSURE
BUT WHAT HE FOUND WAS MORE THAN HE DREAMED
HE’D EVER FIND IN COPPERTOWNE

SHE OFFERED OPEN ARMS AND MORE
BUT WHAT SHE FOUND WAS LOVE SO PURE
SHE’D NEVER KNOWN IN COPPERTOWNE

SAFE IN THESE WALLS OF HER MAKING
FEARFUL OF CHANCES SHE’S TAKING
BUT MAYBE NOW IT’S FINALLY TIME TO LET HER GUARD DOWN
AND LET LOVE IN TO COPPERTOWNE

HE SEES WITHIN HER EYES MORE LOVE
THAN HE HAS EVER KNOWN BEFORE, SO SURE
WAITING ALL THESE YEARS IN COPPERTOWNE

SAFE IN THESE WALLS OF HER MAKING
FEARFUL OF CHANCES SHE’S TAKING
BUT MAYBE NOW THE RIGHT ONE’S COME ALONG TO TEAR THEM DOWN
AND BRING LOVE BACK TO COPPERTOWNE

HE CAME TO COPPERTOWNE UNSURE
BUT WHAT HE FOUND WAS LOVE SO TRUE
ONCE OLD, MADE NEW
WAITING ALL THESE YEARS IN COPPERTOWNE
(Oct 1, 2014)
YOU DON’T KNOW

YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TO ME
YOU DON’T KNOW, YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE THE YOU I SEE
YOU DON’T KNOW, BUT YOU THINK YOU DO
AND YOU THINK THAT IT’S ME FOR YOU, BUT IT’S YOU FOR ME

IT’S NOT LIKE WE’VE NEVER LOVED BEFORE
BUT THIS KIND OF LOVE IS SO MUCH MORE THAN ENOUGH

YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT I SEE IN YOU
EVEN SO, JUST THE THOUGHT OF YOU CAN MAKE ME SMILE

IT’S NOT LIKE WE’VE NEVER LOVED BEFORE
BUT THIS KIND OF LOVE IS SO MUCH MORE THAN ENOUGH

YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME
YOU DON’T KNOW THAT YOU’RE EVERYTHING I HAD IN MIND
KNOW THAT I’M GONNA LOVE YOU ‘TILL I DIE
AND BEYOND UNTIL THE END OF TIME
(Oct 1, 2014)
WHEN YOU SMILE AT ME

LIKE SPRINGTIME WHEN ALL IS NEW
WHEN FROST TURNS TO MORNING DEW
THE DAWN PAINTS THE HEAVENS BLUE
WHEN YOU SMILE AT ME
LIKE SUN ON THE WINDOW PANE
AS SOFT AS A SUMMER’S RAIN
THE BIRDS SING THEIR SWEET REFRAIN
WHEN YOU SMILE AT ME

NATURE IN ALL OF ITS WONDER
CANNOT COMPARE WITH YOUR SMILE
AND THIS ENCHANTMENT I’M UNDER
I HOPE I STAY HERE AWHILE

STARS LIGHT THE EVENING SKY
THE MOON GLOWS, THE ANGELS SIGH
THE WORLD SINGS A LULLABY
WHEN YOU SMILE AT ME

NATURE IN ALL OF ITS WONDER
CANNOT COMPARE WITH YOUR SMILE
AND THIS ENCHANTMENT I’M UNDER
I PLAN TO STAY HERE AWHILE

WINTER BECOMES THE SPRING
CHURCH BELLS BEGIN TO RING
AND I HEAR THE ANGELS SING
WHEN YOU SMILE AT ME
THE LAST TO KNOW

I WAS THE LAST TO KNOW
THE LAST ONE OF ALL TO KNOW
LOVING BLINDLY ‘TILL I FINALLY SAW

YOU HAD ALREADY GONE
ALREADY COME AND GONE
NEVER KNOWING LOVE WAS GROWING COLD

WHY, OH WHY DID YOU STAND BY
AND WAIT FOR YOUR HEART TO DIE
IF SOMETHING WAS BROKEN YOU SHOULD HAVE SPOKEN
BUT YOU KEPT IT ALL INSIDE

AND I WAS THE LAST TO KNOW
THE LAST ONE OF ALL TO KNOW
YOU STOOD SILENT AND PLANNED YOUR LAST GOODBYE

WHY, OH WHY DID YOU STAND BY
AND WAIT FOR YOUR HEART TO DIE
IF SOMETHING WAS WRONG THEN WHY WAIT SO LONG AND
LEAVE ME WITH SO LITTLE TIME

AND I WAS THE LAST TO KNOW
THE LAST ONE OF ALL TO KNOW
YOU STOOD SILENT AND PLANNED YOUR LAST GOODBYE
(Oct 1, 2014)
I MISS YOU LOVING ME

I MISS MY FRONT PORCH, I MISS MY BACK YARD
I MISS MY OAK TREE, I MISS MY OLD HEART
I MISS THE SOFT LIGHT SPILLING DOWN THE HALL
BUT MOST OF ALL I MISS YOU LOVING ME

I MISS THE FIREPLACE ON A WINTER’S NIGHT
I MISS THE FEELING THAT ALL THE WORLD IS RIGHT
I MISS THE FUTURE AND ALL THAT IT MIGHT BE
BUT MOST OF ALL I MISS YOU LOVING ME

IT’S A LOT THAT YOU HAVE ASKED OF ME
TO SAY GOODBYE TO EVERYTHING
THEY SAY THE HEART KNOWS WHAT IT NEEDS
I KNOW THAT’S TRUE OF MINE

I MISS THE PROMISE OF GROWING OLD WITH YOU
I MISS THE THOUSAND THINGS THAT WE WILL NEVER DO
I MISS THE HAPPY MAN THAT I USED TO BE
BUT MOST OF ALL I MISS YOU LOVING ME

IT’S A LOT THAT YOU HAVE ASKED OF ME
TO SAY GOODBYE TO EVERYTHING
THEY SAY THE HEART KNOWS WHAT IT NEEDS
I KNOW THAT’S TRUE OF MINE

I MISS THE PICTURES HANGING ON THE WALL
I MISS THE KITCHEN, HELL I MISS IT ALL
I’M LETTING GO BUT IT IS KILLING ME
‘CAUSE MOST OF ALL I MISS YOU LOVING ME
THIS LETTING GO IS SLOWLY KILLING ME
‘CAUSE MOST OF ALL I MISS YOU LOVING ME

ZANZIBAR

I WALKED THE STREETS OF ZANZIBAR YET DID NOT GET SO VERY FAR
BUT WHAT I SAW WILL LIVE WITH ME UNTIL THERE COMES ETERNITY
THE DOCK WAS STREWN WITH GAUNT DARK MEN WHO HAD NOT WORKED SINCE WHO KNOWS WHEN
NO SMILE APPEARED UPON THEIR FACES BUT TIRED DRAWN LINES, DISPARING TRACES

UNESCO GRANTS APPEARED ONE DAY AND OFFERED HOPE TO SOME THEY SAY
BUT NOT THE DARK WHO CROSSED THE BAY WHO HAD NO WORK YET HAD TO STAY
FOR COMING COSTS AND LEAVING TOO SO WITHOUT WORK WHAT COULD THEY DO
BUT LEAN OR LIE OR SIT OR STAND, A SILENT SULLEN WEAKENED BAND

AMIDST THE TOWN A SLAVING BLOCK COVERED WITH A CHURCH THAT’S LOCKED
SOMEDAY THE ISLE WILL THRIVE THEY SAY WHEN IT’S REPAIRED AND TRAVELLERS STAY

BUT I WALKED THE STREETS OF ZANZIBAR AND TO THOSE I SAW THAT TIME SEEMED FAR
NO DREAMS NO JOYS NO FAMILY TIES WERE BRIGHTNING UP THOSE HAUNTED EYES
I’VE WALKED THE STREETS OF WORLD WIDE PLACES
I’VE SEEN THOSE SAME DISPAIRING FACES
IN HOLY LANDS AND GODLESS SITES I’VE SEEN THOSE EYES WITHOUT THEIR LIGHTS

I WALKED THE STREETS OF ZANZIBAR BUT DID NOT GET SO VERY FAR
BUT WHAT I SAW WILL LIVE WITH ME UNTIL THERE COMES ETERNITY

WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE

SOMETIMES PEOPLE TALK OF THINGS THEY DO NOT KNOW
AND MOSTLY THEY ARE WRONG, AND THAT’S HOW RUMORS GROW
BUT I’VE HEARD WHAT THEY SAY WHEN THEY SPEAK OF YOU
THIS TIME THEY ARE RIGHT, WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE

YOU LIGHT UP A ROOM JUST BY WALKING IN
YOU WEAR YOUR MAMMA’S SMILE, YOU’RE EVERYBODY’S FRIEND
THE KEEPER OF THE FLAME IS HOW THEY THINK OF YOU
THIS TIME THEY ARE RIGHT, WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE

SOMETIMES IT’S LIKE SHE’S NEVER REALLY GONE
‘CAUSE SHE LEFT YOU BEHIND TO CARRY ON

AND ALL THE LITTLE WAYS SHE COULD MAKE YOU FEEL AT HOME
IT SEEMS YOU’VE LEARNED THEM ALL AND MADE THEM ALL YOUR OWN
AND EVERYBODY SAYS THEY SEE HER IN YOU
WELL THIS TIME THEY ARE RIGHT, WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE

SOMETIMES IT’S LIKE SHE’S NEVER REALLY GONE
‘CAUSE SHE LEFT YOU BEHIND TO CARRY ON

EVERYBODY SAYS THAT SHE STILL LIVES IN YOU
WELL THIS TIME THEY ARE RIGHT, WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE
YOU KEEP HER ALIVE, AND WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE
(Oct 1, 2014)
SOMEBODY’S DOING SOMETHING SOMEWHERE

I STOPPED TO SMELL THE FLOWERS, SEVEN WASTED HOURS
I HAVE NOT DONE A THING ALL DAY
BUT I WON’T LET THAT BOTHER ME, I WON’T BE LOOSING ANY SLEEP
‘CAUSE SOMEBODY’S DOING SOMETHING SOMEWHERE

WELL MAYBE I SHOULD TAKE A NAP OR READ A MAGAZINE
OR SIT HERE FLIPPING CHANNELS OR GRAB A BITE TO EAT
THIS LIFESTYLE’S SURE SEDUCTIVE BUT I DON’T FEEL UNPRODUCTIVE
‘CAUSE SOMEBODY’S DOING SOMETHING SOMEWHERE

MAYBE I SHOULD DO THE WASH OR AT LEAST GO TO THE GYM
YEAH, I PROBABLY OUGHT TO MOW THE LAWN, BUT THIS HAMMOCK THAT I’M IN
IS AWFULLY DAMNED SEDUCTIVE AND I DON’T FEEL UNPRODUCTIVE
‘CAUSE SOMEBODY’S DOING SOMETHING SOMEWHERE
SOMEBODY’S DOING SOMETHING SOMEWHERE
SOMEBODY’S DOING SOMETHING SOMEWHERE
(Oct 1, 2014)
SOMEBODY’S OLD USED TO BE

THE RINGING OF THE PINBALLS, FLASHING NEON LIGHTS
JUKEBOX PLAYING CHARLIE PARKER BLUES
AND ME I’M JUST WAITING HOPING TO FIND ME
A BRAND NEW SOMEBODY’S OLD USED TO BE

‘CAUSE AFTER MIDNIGHT YOU FEEL SO ALONE
YOU JUST WANT SOMEBODY, YOU NEED SOMEBODY
TO HELP YOU GET THROUGH THOSE HOURS BEFORE THE DAWN
WHEN THE SUN COMES SHINING IN

THE SOUNDS OF CITY TRAFFIC, THE SMELL OF THE STREETS
VENDORS HAWK THE REMNANTS OF THEIR DAY
AND ALL THE FALLEN ANGELS SHOWING THEIR WARES
CAN’T HOLD YOU IF YOU CAN’T PAY

‘CAUSE AFTER MIDNIGHT YOU FEEL SO ALONE
YOU JUST WANT SOMEBODY, YOU NEED SOMEBODY
TO HELP YOU GET THROUGH THOSE HOURS BEFORE THE DAWN
WHEN THE SUN COMES SHINING IN

THE RINGING OF THE PINBALLS, FLASHING NEON LIGHTS
JUKEBOX PLAYING LONG-FORGOTTEN KINGS
AND ME I’M JUST WAITING HOPING TO FIND ME
A BRAND NEW SOMEBODY’S OLD USED TO BE
USED TO BE, BUT NEW TO ME
(Oct 1, 2014)
WELCOME HOME

WE NEVER KNOW HOW FAR THE CHOICES THAT WE MAKE
AND THE PATHS WE CHOOSE TO TAKE WILL LEAD US ON
SOME QUICKLY FADE AWAY WHILE OTHERS SEEM TO STAY
AND SO DEFINE OUR LIVES
AND THE DAYS TURN INTO YEARS, WE SETTLE IN FOR GOOD
IN A WAY WE NEVER WOULD HAVE DREAMED WE MIGHT
AND THE WHOLE IDEA OF CHANGE JUST FEELS A BIT TOO STRANGE
TO EVER SAY GOODBYE

BUT HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
AND HOME IS ANYWHERE YOU CHOOSE
AND THOUGH IT’S HARD TO SAY GOODBYE
SOMETIMES BY HOLDING ON TOO TIGHT YOU LOOSE
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
AND HEARTS WERE NEVER MEANT TO BE ALONE
SO FOR ALL YOU LEAVE BEHIND MAY YOUR LIFE BE REDEFINED
AND YOUR HEART BEAT ONE WITH MINE, WELCOME HOME

LET’S BUILD OURSELVES A HOME, WE’LL HANG THE KITCHEN ROPE
AND PLANT OURSELVES AN OAK AND WATCH IT GROW
WE’LL GLIDE THE NIGHTS AWAY AND WAKE UP EVERYDAY
RIGHT BY EACH OTHER’S SIDE
AND THE YEARS WE SPENT ALONE WILL ALL BE LAID TO REST
WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THE BEST IS YET TO COME
AND THE ROAD THAT LED US HERE WE WILL HOLD FOREVER DEAR
IN ONE ANOTHER’S HEART

‘CAUSE HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
AND HOME IS ANYWHERE YOU CHOOSE
AND THOUGH IT’S HARD TO SAY GOODBYE
SOMETIMES BY HOLDING ON TOO TIGHT YOU LOOSE
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
AND HEARTS WERE NEVER MEANT TO BE ALONE
SO FOR ALL YOU LEAVE BEHIND MAY YOUR LIFE BE REDEFINED
AND YOUR HEART BEAT ONE WITH MINE, WELCOME HOME
SO FOR ALL YOU LEFT BEHIND MAY YOUR LIFE BE REDEFINED
AND YOUR HEART BEAT ONE WITH MINE, WELCOME HOME
