Lifting My Heart Watching The River Run Wild One Don't You Cry There Must Be Some Way Changed Forever Boiling River Stand I'm On The Edge Time Will Take It's Toll Goodbye Call Up An Old Friend




Lifting My Heart


So, I was feeling lowdown
Shoveling pain by the pound
Looking down at my shoes

Felt like a human in doubt
Really, my inside was out
Very hard to amuse

Then I heard something outside
All about Mister Sun
Somebody singing outside
Making me a lucky one

Your song it lifted my heart
Your song it lifted my heart

You were there in the backyard
Playing and working so hard
Making pies out of mud

I was all wrapped in my head
Wanted to be back in bed
Sinking down in the flood

Then I heard singing outside
All about the golden sun
Somebody singing outside
Making me a lucky one

Your song is lifting my heart
Your song is lifting my heart

La la la la la
La la la la la

You're a miracle change in my life
Sending me to my soul
Sweet miracle changing my life
Thrilling me head to toe

Your love is lifting my heart
Your love is lifting my heart

Watching The River Run


On summer nights when the moon is full
The warm wind's sigh...I remember it still
The path we'd walk to the rivers edge
The way my father's eyes spoke when nothing was said
And I'd take his hand
As we walked I'd understand
That we would sit there watching the river run

All our dreams were there
Every secret that we shared
In the setting summer sun
Watching the river run

Seasons came and so did love
We spent our days on the banks by the bluff
Kisses cool as the water's touch
We lay down with our promises, secrets and trust
Side by side
The sound of the water rushing by
We would lay there watching the river run

All our dreams were there
Every secret that we shared
In the setting summer sun
Watching the river run

The tangled web & the day by day
We soon forget what we lost on the way
But I go back take my child's hand
Walk that path to the river and sit in the sand
With her by my side
The sound of the water rushing by
We'll just sit there watching the river run

All our dreams are there
Every secret that we share
In the setting summer sun
Watching the river run

Wild One


Change your life wild one
Change your life
Make it strong
Change your life wild one
Sing your own song


Now
Now that the dark has come
And the virgin green was made unclean
By the foolish one
Now
Everyone has to pay
And the more that we resist the more the blindness stays
Yeah the more that we resist the more the blindness stays

Don't You Cry


Don't you cry
Wipe your weeping eyes
Don't you cry

Don't you cry
Wipe your weeping eyes
Don't you cry

All your sorrow
Soon be gone away
All your sorrow
Gone like yesterday
All your sorrow
Soon be gone away
Let me hold you till tomorrow

Don't you cry
Wipe your weeping eyes
Don't you cry

Don't you cry
Wipe your weeping eyes
Don't you cry....

There Must Be Some Way


There must be some way to mend your heart
There must be some way
In this world of ours some place to start
There must be some way

Oh my darlin', oh my lover
There may never be another chance
Like this
Long as I remember I've been waiting for this moment
To  be true
With you

There must be some way to make amends
There must be some way
I believe that we can love again
There must be some way

Changed Forever


Forty years by her side
To have and to hold
All their lives
They raised up the kids
The best they knew how
Buried the youngest
And carried on somehow

Now he works in the yard
The children are grown
Till the day that she died
He was never alone
He keeps himself busy
The best he knows how
Buries the past
And carries on somehow

In the wind that blows west
In a baby's first breath
In a moment
Lives change forever
With a chance that goes missed
Or a lover's first kiss
Changed forever

He tells stories of war
And of hard lessons learned
The day his friends flew without him
And never returned
Of the day that they met
And the night he came home
With his lifetime of memories
He carries on alone

In the wind that blows west
In a baby's first breath
In a moment
Lives change forever
With a chance that goes missed
Or a lover's first kiss
Changed forever

He turns down the bed
He turns out the light
He talks to his daughter
He talks to his wife
He says "i'm gettin' along
The best i know how
I feel you there with me
And carry on somehow"

In the wind that blows west
In a loved one's last breath
In a moment
Lives change forever
Oh with fire or a fist
Or a lover's last kiss
Changed forever

Boiling River


Boiling river
River of tears
Rushin' over
A bed of fears
Too much tension
Too many questions

Deep the forest
Dark the earth
Warm and tender
Life and birth
There's no directions
No prescriptions
It's your decision

Feel the tremble feel the burn
Feel the life within you turn
All the fear all the doubt
It almost tears your heart right out
Can you make it through alive
Crossin' over
This boiling river
River of tears

BILL HENDERSON SOME SUNG SONGS (SOCAN)

Stand


They're standing on the corners
Marching in the rain
They shout what they believe in
And lead the way to change

Some think it won't make any difference
That nobody is listening
But centuries of people speaking their minds
Has proven time and time again

Stand...and let your voice be heard
You can believe in the power of the word
Stand and let your voice be heard

Some are born to silence
To slip through life unchanged
They leave no path behind them
And they look the other way

But some are born to courage
To take life face to face
They cannot turn their backs on the world
And the things that must be changed

Stand...and let your voice be heard
You can believe in the power of the word
Stand and let your voice be heard

Stand...stand together
Stand up...and right what's wrong
Stand...with your hands together
Stand...and let your voice be strong

Stand...and let your voice be heard
You can believe in the power of the word
Stand and let your voice be heard

I'm On The Edge


I'm on the edge.
I'm on the edge.
Yeah, I'm feelin' kinda lovesick
I gotta get home to you

Let me tell you, now
You're my heart's desire
I've been hummin' that tune about a fever
Like Peggy Lee
My thermometer's
Cruisin' higher and higher
I'm in a mixed up state
I gotta get straight
Instead of like a cat up a tree

I'm on the edge.......

Well you know I've been
Travelin' much too long
I've been burnin' up the wires on the telephone
Day and night
Now I'm gonna sing
One more doggone song
Then I'm headed for the gate
I got a heavy date
I don't wanna miss my flight

I'm on the edge........

Time Will Take Its Toll


Is there a silence
Of unspoken words
Running through our days
We dare not disturb
We take it for granted
For better or worse
There's those things in life
You can never reverse

Oh, i remember
When we were new
I never doubted
How i felt about you
I'd had all that i needed
Of freedom and fate
I never dreamed
What a difference you'd make

Time will take its toll on love
Every word and every touch
Is not what it was
Time will change us, you and I
Who will we find
As time takes its toll on love

All around us
Are friends filled with doubt
Is this solemn promise
What life's all about
Then there are others
Who don't wanna see
They don't question why
It's just the way it should be

I'll never know
If some kind of voice
Was leading us both
To think we'd made the choice
But i know that together
Is where we belong
I never dreamed
This feeling could last so long

Time will take its toll on love
Every word and every touch
Is not what it was
Time will change us, you and I
Who will we find
As time takes its toll on love

After all that's passed
And all we've been through
No one makes me laugh
The way that you do
The passion and thrill
That comes with the new
I would trade in a moment
For a lifetime with you

Time will take its toll on love
Every word and every touch
Is not what it was
Time will change us, you and I
Who will we find
As time takes its toll
I hope it's you that I'll find
As time takes its toll on love

Goodbye


Well I come downstairs its after four AM
And this song is in my mind
As it unfolds and the melody grows
I recognise the story line

Well it's all about us and the years gone by
And the way I feel tonight
How we built this home how our love has grown
And how the passion died

Goodbye
The song says goodbye
Write it down or it'll be a lie
Write it down and then I start to cry
Start to cry
And I'm crying over you

Well it's late at night I can't be thinkin' right
And there you are at the foot of the stairs
I just quietly play I turn my eyes away
So you can't see the tears

You say is something wrong I say it's just a song
And you turn and go back to bed
I just had to lie 'cause I'm afraid that I
Can't say the words I dread

Goodbye
The song says goodbye
Write it down or it'll be a lie
Write it down and then I start to cry
Start to cry
And I'm crying over you

Call Up An Old Friend


Call up an old friend
Chip through the ice
Find a new threshold
Find a new price
Oh, call up an old friend
Pick up the phone
Call up an old friend
And hope that he's home
Call up an old friend

Get to the reason
The reason for quits
Stamp out the reason
The reason for it

Call up an old friend
Chip through the ice
Find a new threshold
Find a new price
Oh, call up an old friend
Pick up the phone
Call up an old friend
And hope that he's home
Call up an old friend

Make some sense out of
The last parting words
Make some sense out of
The things that you've heard

Call up an old friend
Chip through the ice
Find a new threshold
Find a new price
Oh, call up an old friend
Pick up the phone
Call up an old friend
And hope that he's home
Call up an old friend
