18 Roses Songs with Lyrics

Here are songs for the 18 roses dance for your debut party. You can choose to have just one song for your 18 roses dance and it is alright. However, there are debutantes who want to have a different song for every person on their 18 roses list. Some would even ask their 18 roses to sing a portion of the song to them. You can also make your 18 roses dance less formal. Adding some spunk to your 18 roses dance depends on the music that you would dance to. I have seen a very unconventional 18 roses dance and it was made possible through the song choices. I have seen debutantes dance with their partners on practically any beat. It is not just the usual slow dance, but they really worked the dance floor. For instance, I have seen a debutante switch from dancing a slow dance with one partner and then doing a hiphop dance on the next. She even did a swing and it was really entertaining. The unexpected dance moves from the debutante and her partner made it so exciting that the guests were practically on their feet and cheering on. Seeing this debut made me think of the 18 roses dance in a whole new light, and this song list reflects that. We have a vast array of slow and fast songs that you can choose from. This page is constantly being updated so you may visit us every now and then. This song list aims to help you and your 18 roses pick a song that best exemplifies their relationship to you. We have also placed some comments and interpretation to each song. It may not be spot on so feel free to think about your own interpretation of the songs. If you have a song or two in mind that you would like to suggest, drop us a line at party(a)debutideas.com

A FRIEND OF MINE (Odette Quesada)
Comment: A song about two best friends wanting more but never gets a chance.

I’ve known you for so long you are a friend of mine
But is this all we ever be
I’ve loved you eversince your are a friend of mine
And babe is this all will ever could be

Refrain:

You tell me things I never know
I showed you love you’d never show
But then again when you cry
I’m always at your side.
And tell me about the love you had
I listen very eagerly
But deep inside you never see
This feeling of emptiness
It makes me feel sad.
But then again, I’m glad…

I’ve known you all my life you are a friend of mine
I know this is how it’s gonna be
I’ve love you then and I love you still,
your friend of mine
Now I know friends are all we ever could be.

(Refrain)
Then again, Then again
I’m glad

ALL GOOD THINGS (Nelly Furtado)
Comment: A nice upbeat song.

Honestly what will become of me
Don’t like reality
It’s way too clear to me
But really life is dandy
We are what we don’t see
Missed everything daydreaming

(Chorus)
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to end?
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to an end?

Traveling I only stop at exits
Wondering if I’ll stay
Young and restless
Living this way I stress less
I want to pull away when the dream dies
The pain sets in and I don’t cry
I only feel gravity and I wonder why

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to end?
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to an end?

Well the dogs were whistling a new tune
Barking at the new moon
Hoping it would come soon so that they could
Dogs were whistling a new tune
Barking at the new moon
Hoping it would come soon so that they could
Die die die die die

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to end?
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to an end?

Well the dogs were barking at a new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon
And the sun was wondering if it should stay away for a day ’til the feeling went away
And the sky was falling on the clouds were dropping and
the rain forgot how to bring salvation
the dogs were barking at the new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon so that they could die.

ALL THE WAY (Celine Dion)
Comment: A nice ballad for a dance with a relative, friend or classmate.

When somebody loves you
It’s no good unless he loves you – all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you – all the way

Taller than the tallest tree is
That’s how it’s got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue sea is
That’s how deep it goes – if its real

When somebody needs you
It’s no good unless he needs you – all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all the in between years – come what way

Who know where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say
But if you’ll let me love you
It’s for sure I’m gonna love you – all the way, all the way

AND I LOVE HER (Beatles)
Comment: An old classic by the Beatles that may appeal to both young and old.

I give her all my love
That’s all I do
And if you saw my love
You’d love her too
I love her

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my lover brings
She brings to me
And I love her

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

ARE YOU IN (Incubus)
Comment: A very nice upbeat modern song for 18 roses.

It’s so much better
When everyone is in
Are you in?
It’s so much better
When everyone is in
Are you in?
Ooh ooh
Are you in?
You ooh
Are you in?
It’s so much better
When everyone is in
Are you in?
It’s so much easier
When sea foam green
Is in fashion
You you, oh
Are you in?
You ooh ooh ooh
Are you

Are you are you are you
Are you are you are you
Are you are you are you
Are you are you are you
Are you are you are you
Are you are you are you
(Everybody everybody in)
(Ooh ooh ooh)

You ooh
Are you in?
You ooh
Ooh

ARTHUR’S THEME (Christopher Cross)
Comment: A great song about falling in love. Nice for 18 roses dance.

Once in your life you find her
Someone that turns your heart around
And next thing you know you’re closing down the town
Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her way across town
Wondering to yourself, “Hey, what’ve I found?”

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do ……
The best that you can do is fall in love

Arthur he does as he pleases
All of his life, he’s mastered choice
Deep in his heart, he’s just, he’s just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
And showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way they want him to be

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do
The best that you can do is fall in love

AS (George Michael and Mary J. Blige)
Comment: A cute upbeat song about

As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
Just as hate knows love’s the cure
You can rest your mind assure
That I’ll be loving you always

As now can’t reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older every day
Just as all is born is new
Do you know what I say is true
That I’ll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
Until the day is the day that are no more

Did you know that true love asks for nothing
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

As today I know I’m living but tomorrow
Could make me the past
But that I mustn’t fear
I know deep in my mind
The love of me I’ve left behind
Cause I’ll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of live and live becomes a dream
Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more

Did you know that true love asks for nothing
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
For now I know deep in my mind
The love of me I’ve left behind
Cause I’ll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of live and live becomes a dream

Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more

A THOUSAND MILES (Vanessa Carlton)
Comment: A youthful song for your AVP.

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I’m home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder….

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

It’s always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

‘Cause everything’s so wrong
And I don’t belong
Living in your
Precious memories

‘Cause I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder….

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

And I, I
Don’t want to let you know
I, I
Drown in your memory
I, I
Don’t want to let this go
I, I
Don’t….

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I’m home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder….

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass us by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you…

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight

AT THE BEGINNING (Richard Marx and Donna Lewis)
Comment: A nice ballad.

We were strangers, starting out on a journey
Never dreaming, what wed have to go through
Now here we are, Im suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected, what you did to my heart
When I lost hope, you were there to remind me
This is the start

And life is a road that I wanna keep going
Love is a river, I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road, now and forever, wonderful journey
Ill be there when the world stops turning
Ill be there when the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

We were strangers on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming, how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand, unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

And life is a road that I wanna keep going
Love is a river, I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road, now and forever, wonderful journey
Ill be there when the world stops turning
Ill be there when the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

Knew there was somebody, somewhere
A new love in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
Ive been waiting so long
Nothings gonna tear us apart

And life is a road that I wanna keep going
Love is a river, I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road, now and forever, wonderful journey
Ill be there when the world stops turning
Ill be there when the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

Yeah

Life is a road that I wanna keep going on
Love is a river, I wanna keep going

Starting out on a journey

Life is a road that I wanna keep going
Love is a river, I wanna keep flowing
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

AT YOUR BEST (Aaliyah)
Comment: A nice song for a dance with your boyfriend or someone close.

Let me know, let me know
Ah – ha, let me know, let me know
Let me know

Verse 1:
When I feel what I feel
Sometimes its hard to tell you so
You may not be in the mood to learn what you think you know
There are times when I find
You want to keep yourself from me
When I don’t have the strength; I’m just a mirror to what I see

Chorus:
But at your best you are love
You’re a positive motivating force within my life
Should you ever feel the need to wonder why
Let me know, let me know. . .

Verse 2:
When you feel what you feel
Oh, how hard for me to understand
So many things have happened before this love affair began
But when you feel, oh, like I feel
Confusion can give way to doubt
And there are times when I fall short of what I say,
What I say I’m all about, all about

Chorus
Bridge:
Tell me what it is (tell me what it is)
Make believe, no need to make believe
Look beyond your own (look beyond your own)
Try and find another place for me
Cause. . .

Chorus
Ah, ah, ah – ha
See, at your best baby

A WHOLE NEW WORLD (Peabo Bryson)
Comment: Another Disney song that is nice for 18 roses dance.

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I’m way up here
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you
Now I’m in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don’t you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath – it gets better
I’m like a shooting star
I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I’ll chase them anywhere
There’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That’s where we’ll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me

BACK AT ONE (Brian McKnight)
Comment: A song for a person who is in love with you.

It’s undeniable, that we should be together
It’s unbelievable how I used to say that I’d fall never
The basis is need to know, if you don’t know just how I feel,
Then let me show you now that I’m for real
If all things in time, time will reveal
Yeah

One… you’re like a dream come true…
Two… just wanna be with you…
Three… girl it’s plain to see… that your the only one for me…
Four… repeat steps one through three…
Five… make you fall in love with me…
If ever I believe my work is done… then I start Back at One (yeah)

So Incredible… the way things work themselves out…
And all emotional, once you know what it’s all about babe…
And undesirable… for us to be apart…
Never would of made it very far…
Cause you know that you’ve got the keys to my heart
Cause…

One… you’re like a dream come true
Two… just wanna be with you
Three… girl it’s plain to see… that your the only one for me
Four.. .repeat steps one through three
Five… make you fall in love with me
If ever I believe my work is done… then I start Back at One……

Say farewell to the dark of night… I see the coming of the sun…
I feel like a little child… whose life has just begun…
You came and breathed new life
Into this lonely heart of mine…
You threw out the life line… just in the Nick of Time…..

One… you’re like a dream come true
Two… just wanna be with you
Three… girl it’s plain to see… that your the only one for me… girl and…
Four… repeat steps one through three
Five… make you fall in love with me
If ever I believe my work is done… then I start Back at One.

BEAUTIFUL IN MY EYES (Joshua Kadison)

You’re my piece of mind, in this crazy world
You’re every thing I’ve tried to find
Your love is a pearl
You’re my Mona Lisa
You’re my rainbow skies
And my only prayer is that you realize
You’ll always be beautiful in my eyes

The world will turn
And the seasons will change
And all the lessons we will learn
Will be beautiful and strange
We’ll have our fill of tears
Our share of sight
My only prayer is that you realize
You’ll always be beautiful in my eyes

You will always be beautiful in my eyes
And the passing years will show
That you will always grow
Ever more beautiful in my eyes

And there are lines upon my face
From a life time of smiles
When the time comes to embrace
For one long last wine
We can laugh about how time really flies
We won’t say goodbye
‘Cause true love never dies
You’ll always be beautiful in my eyes

You will always be beautiful in my eyes
And the passing years will show
That you will always grow
Ever more beautiful in my eyes

The passing years will show
That you will always grow
Ever more beautiful in my eyes

BEAUTIFUL SEED (Corrinne May)
Comment: This is a very nice inspirational song for AVP and 18 roses dance.

I can fill the darkness with just one flash of light
Break the the silence with just one word
One defiance starts a revolution
One that can save the world

On the steps of Washington sprinkled like confetti
Thousands of people sing “We shall overcome”
The preacher shouts: “Let freedom ring”
He gave his life for what he believed

Chorus
You can be a witness You can be a prophet
You can make the whole world believe
Break the strongest fortress Change the way the world thinks
You can build a bridge where foes can meet
Hope for the future
Shout it, don’t whisper dreams are what make them to be
There is hope in every heartbeat
Tiny as it seems
You’re a beautiful seed

She’s a pastor’s daughter
She’s only 16
But her heart and her belly are breaking at the seams
Her boyfriend blames her
He want to pay for the doctor to wash it away

As she lays in the hospital
A Christmas choir is singing
About a child in a manger fragile and small “Unto us is born a Savior”
She looks at her baby and cries as she sings him a lullaby

(Chorus)

Every hope, every prayer lies in the heart of a seed that flowers
Intertwined all across the land
We’re all seeds in the maker’s hand

BEAUTIFUL SOUL (Jesse McCartney)

I don’t want another pretty face
I don’t want just anyone to hold
I don’t want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul

I know that you are something special
To you I’d be always faithful
I want to be what you always needed
Then I hope you’ll see the heart in me

Chorus:
I don’t want another pretty face
I don’t want just anyone to hold
I don’t want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul
You’re the one I wanna chase
You’re the one I wanna hold
I wont let another minute go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul, yeah

You might need time to think it over
But I’m just fine moving forward
I’ll ease your mind, if you give me the chance
I will never make you cry c`mon let’s try

(Chorus)

Am I crazy for wanting you?
Maybe do you think you could want me too?
I don’t wanna waste your time
Do you see things the way I do?
I just wanna know that you feel it too
There is nothing left to hide

(Chorus)

I don’t want another pretty face
I don’t want just anyone to hold
I don’t want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul
You’re the one I wanna chase
You’re the one I wanna hold
I won’t let another minute go to waste

I want you and your soul
I don’t want another pretty face
I don’t want just anyone to hold
I don’t want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul
Ooooooo
Beautiful Soul, yeah
Oooooo, yeah
Your beautiful soul

BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME (Celine Dion)
Comment: A good 18 roses dance with a friend or classmate. Also good for father and daughter dance. This can also be used for your AVP.

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
Ill be forever thankful baby
Youre the one who held me up
Never let me fall
Youre the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldnt speak
You were my eyes when I couldnt see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldnt reach
You gave me faith coz you believed
Im everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
Im grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I dont know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldnt speak
You were my eyes when I couldnt see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldnt reach
You gave me faith coz you believed
Im everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
Youve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldnt speak
You were my eyes when I couldnt see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldnt reach
You gave me faith coz you believed
Im everything I am
Because you loved me

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldnt speak
You were my eyes when I couldnt see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldnt reach
You gave me faith coz you believed
Im everything I am
Because you loved me

Im everything I am
Because you loved me

BEST DAY OF MY LIFE (Jesse McCartney)
Comment: A song with a nice beat that can be used for 18 roses dance.

Woke up around a half past ten can’t believe that I’m late again,
put down about a quart of caffeine to start my pulse and then
grabbed my jeans off the floor then I hit the door,
just the same ol’ same,
it goes to show you never know whenever things about to change…

Just another day it started out like any other,
Just another girl who took my breath away,
Then she turned around,
She took me down,
Just another day that I had
The best day of my life…

Can’t say exactly what it was, she’s not the usual type,
she wore a cowboy hat with her red Prada boots and a Gwen Steffani smile,
then she pulled out a pen and surprised me when she wrote her number on my hand,
then she was gone from now on I’m gonna be a different man…

Just another day it started out like any other,
Just another girl who took my breath away,
Then she turned around,
She took me down,
Just another day that i had
The best day of my life…

I guess it goes to show you never really know,
When every things about to change…

Just another day it started out like any other,
Just another girl who took my breath away,
Then she turned around, She took me down,
Just another day that i had
The best day of my life.

Just another day it started out like any other,
Just another girl who took my breath away,
Then she turned around, She took me down,
Just another day that i had
The best day of my life.

fade
(started out like any other)
started out like any other
(took my breath away)
had the best day of my life
The best day of my life
(who took my breath away)
(the best day of my life)
The best day of my life
(the best day of my life)

BETCHA BY GOLLY WOW (Stylistics)
Comment: An old song that has a nice rhythm.

There’s a spark of magic in your eyes
Candyland appears each time you smile
Never thought that fairy tales came true
But they come true when I’m near you
You’re a genie in disguise
Full of wonder and surprise

And betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever
And ever will my love for you keep growin’ strong
Keep growin’ strong

If I could I’d catch a falling star
To shine on you so I’ll know where you are
Order rainbows in your favorite shade
To show I love you, thinking of you
Write your name across the sky
Anything you ask I’ll try, `cause

Betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever
And ever will my love for you keep growin’ strong
Keep growin’ strong

Betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever
And ever will my love for you keep growin’ strong
Keep growin’ strong

Betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever
And ever will my love for you

BIZAARE LOVE TRIANGLE (Frente)
Comment: A cool song for a dance with a best friend.

Every time i think of you
I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue
It’s no problem of mine but it’s a problem I find
Living a life that I can’t leave behind
There’s no sense in telling me
The wisdom of a fool won’t set you free
But that’s the way that it goes
And it’s what nobody knows
While every day my confusion grows

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I’m waiting for that final moment
You’ll say the words that I can’t say

I feel fine and I feel good
I’m feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way, I just don’t know what to say
Why can’t we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I’m not sure what this could mean
I don’t think you’re what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I’ll never see just what we’re meant to be

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I’m waiting for that final moment
You’ll say the words that I can’t say

BREAKAWAY (Kelly Clarkson)
Comment: Nice for 18 roses but nicer for your AVP. It’s about being an adult, about change and taking risks.

Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I’d just stare out my window
Dreaming of what could be
And if I’d end up happy
I would pray (I would pray)

Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I prayed I could break away

(Chorus)
I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes til’ I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on a jet plane, far away (I will)
And breakaway

[Chorus]

Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging around revolving doors
Maybe I don’t know where they’ll take me but
Gotta keep moving on, moving on
Fly away, breakaway

I’ll spread my wings
And I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway, breakaway, breakaway

BUBBLY (Colbie Caillat)
Comment: This is a nice modern slow dance with a good friend or a crush.

I’ve been awake for a while now
You’ve got me feelin’ like a child now
‘Cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tingles in a silly place

It starts in my toes
And I crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go

The rain is fallin’ on my window pane
But we are hidin’ in a safer place
Under covers stayin’ safe and warm
You give me feelings that I adore

They start in my toes
Make me crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go

What am I gonna say
When you make me feel this way?
I just, mmm

It starts in my toes
Makes me crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go

I’ve been asleep for a while now
You tucked me in just like a child now
‘Cause every time you hold me in your arms
I’m comfortable enough to feel your warmth

It starts in my soul
And I lose all control
When you kiss my nose
The feelin’ shows
‘Cause you make me smile
Baby just take your time now
Holdin’ me tight

Wherever, wherever, where ever you go
Wherever, wherever, where ever you go

CHASING CARS (Snow Patrol)
Comment: Also a nice modern slow dance song for anybody.

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden
That’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden
That’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes
They’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things
Will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

CHASING PAVEMENTS (Adele)
Comment: A song about unrequited love, whether to continue or just give up. It has a nice rhythm for 18 roses dance.

I’ve made up my mind, don’t need to think it over
If I’m wrong I am right, don’t need to look no further
This ain’t lust, I know this is love

But if I tell the world, I’ll never say enough
‘Cause it was not said to you
And that’s exactly what I need to do if I’d end up with you

Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?
Or would it be a waste even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there?
Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?

I build myself up and fly around in circles
Wait then as my heart drops and my back begins to tingle
Finally could this be it?

Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?
Or would it be a waste even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there?
Should I give up or should I just keep on chasing pavements
Should I just keep on chasing pavements?

Repeat 2x

CLOSE TO YOU (Carpenters)
Comment: A good song for a dance with a cousin, a classmate, a friend and an uncle.

Why do birds suddenly appear?
Everytime you are near
Just like me they long to be
Close to you

Why do stars fall down from the sky?
Everytime you walk by
Just like me they long to be
Close to you

On the day that you were born
The angels got together and decided
To create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me they long to be
Close to you

COLORS OF THE WIND (Vanessa Williams)
Comment: A Disney song nice for 18 roses dance.

You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know
And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the Earth and still
All you’ll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

COME WHAT MAY (Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman)
Comment: A very intense song about two lovers against all odds. So nice for 18 roses dance.

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I’ve never seen the sky before
I want to vanish inside your kiss
Every day I’m loving you more and more
Listen to my heart, can you hear it sings
Telling me to give you everything
Seasons may change, winter to spring
But I love you until the end of time

Chorus:
Come what may
Come what may
I will love you until my dying day

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesnt’t seem such a waste
It all revolves around you
And there’s no mountain too high
No river too wide
Sing out this song I’ll be there by your side
Storm clouds may gather
And stars may collide
But I love you until the end of time

Chorus

Oh, come what may, come what may
I will love you, I will love you
Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place

Chorus

CUPID (112 or Kyla)
Comment: A dance with a person with whom you have a mutual understanding with, though not highly recommended as the words are too deep or personal. There is not a good vibe, there is some kind of mistrust, but i just love the rhythm. It is a good slow dance music.

Boy if I told you I love you
That doesn’t mean that I don’t care, oooh
And when I tell you I need you
Don’t you think that I’ll can never be there, ooooh

Baby I’m so tired of the way you turn my words into
Deception and lies
Don’t misunderstand me when I try to speak my mind
I’m only saying what’s in my heart
Cupid doesn’t lie
But you won’t know unless you give it a try
Oh baby, true love
won’t lie but you won’t know unless we give it a try
give it a try

Boy when I ask you to trust me
That doesn’t mean that I’m gonna cheat on you
Cuz I’m gonna never do anything to hurt you
Or mislead you, I love you

Baby I’m so tired of the way you turn my words into
Deception and lies
Don’t misunderstand me when I try to speak my mind
I’m only saying what’s in my heart
Cupid doesn’t lie
But you won’t know unless you give it a try
Oh baby, true love
won’t lie but you won’t know unless we give it a try
give it a try

Ain’t no doubt about it
Lord no, I really mean it
I rather die before I, before I lie to you
Never wanna leave you
Ain’t no life without you
Never gonna leave, never gonna go,
No.No, no, no, no, no, no, no, ohhhh

Baby I’m so tired of the way you turn my words into
Deception and lies
Don’t misunderstand me when I try to speak my mind
I’m only saying what’s in my heart
Cupid doesn’t lie
But you won’t know unless you give it a try
Oh baby, true love
won’t lie but you won’t know unless we give it a try
give it a try

Ain’t no doubt about it
Lord no, I really mean it
I rather die before I, before I lie to you
Never wanna leave you
Ain’t no life without you
Never gonna leave, never gonna go,
No.No, no, no, no, no, no, no, ohhhh

DANCE WITH MY FATHER AGAIN (Luther Van Dross)

Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high, and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved

If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
How I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way, I would run from her to him
He’d make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me

If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
‘Cause I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again

Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
And I’d hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me

I know I’m praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don’t do it usually
But dear Lord she’s dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream

DREAM A DREAM (Charlotte Church with Billy Gilman)
Comment: This can be used for your grand entrance or AVP.

When the night is still,
And the sea is calm,
Lonely shadow
You fall upon me
Lay by my side,
Fear not tonight,
Lonely shadow
You’ll find
A new light

Dream a dream
And see through
Angel’s eyes
A place where
We can fly away

Ride with me
Upon a shining star,
Above the moonlit sky
We will find elysium

Hear the nightingale
Sing a lullaby
Lonely shadows
You’ll find a new light

Dawn will be kind,
All will be bright,
Lonely shadow
Rise from
The darkness

Dream a dream
And see through
Angel’s eyes
A place where
We can fly away

Ride with me
Upon a shining star,
Above the moonlit sky,
Once more

Dream a dream
And see through
Angel’s eyes
A place where
We can fly away

Dream a dream
And see through
Angel’s eyes
A place where
We can fly away

DREAMING OF YOU (Selena)
Comment: A nice ballad for 18 roses dance.

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I wish on a star that somewhere you are
Thinking of me too
Cause I’m dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow, I’ll be holding you tight
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

Wonder if you ever see me and i
Wonder if you know I’m there (am I there, am i? )
If you looked in my eyes would you see what’s inside
Would you even care?
I just wanna hold you close but so far
All I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day (wait for the day)
To take the courage to say how much I love you
Yes I do

I’ll be dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow, I’ll be holding you tight
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

Corazón
No puedo dejar de pensar en ti
Como te necesito
Mi amor, como te extraño
(translation:
Sweetheart
I can’t stop thinking of you
How I need you
My love, how I miss you)

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can’t believe
That you came up to me and said I love you
I love you too

Now I’m dreaming with you tonight
Till tomorrow (till tomorrow) and for all of my life
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room
Dreaming with you endlessly

DO I NEED A REASON (D’Sound)
Comment: A cool song about telling your crush for the first time about how you feel for him. Nice for 18 roses dance.

Today when I saw you
I knew it was just like the first time
When you met my eyes I came close
And I felt like the first time

To hold back my fear
and feel you so near
I’ve never been this far before
To hold back my fear
and feel you so near
I’m scared of falling into deep this time

Do I need a reason to tell you why
I’m singing you this song
Do I need a reason to show you that
I know where I belong
Whenever I am weary I lean on
this feeling that I have
I am so much stronger now
Thankful, yes I am

Today I’ll renounce them,
the doubts and the fears I’ve been nursing
I’ll fly like a moth to the flame
and I’ll feel like the first time

To hold back my fear
and let you come near
I’ve never been this far before
To hold back my fear
and let you come near
I’m ‘fraid of loosing and still I go

DRIVE (Incubus)
Comment: A song about maturity and being strong for whatever life throws at you.

Sometimes I feel the fear of
Uncertainty stinging clear
And I can’t help but ask myself how much
I let the fear take the wheel and steer

It’s driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I’m beginning to find that I
Should be the one behind the wheel

(Refrain)
Whatever tomorrow brings I’ll be there
With open arms and open eyes, yeah
Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there
I’ll be there

So if I decide to waiver my
Chance to be one of the hive
Will I choose water over wine
And hold my own and drive, ah-a-ah-a-a

It’s driven me before and it seems to be the way
That everyone else gets around
But lately I’m beginning to find that when
I drive myself my light is found

(Refrain)

Would you choose water over wine
Hold the wheel and drive

EVERYBODY KNOWS (John Legend)
Comment: This song has a nice beat to it. It is about heartbreaks and heartaches.

It gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain
I’m trying to find the words to say, please stay
It’s written all over my face, I can’t
Function the same when you’re not here
I’m calling your name but no one’s there
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody new
But I wish you the best, I guess.
‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
Just how to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

I don’t care what the people say
They brought it all in anyway
Baby don’t fill up your head with he-said, she-said
It seems like you just don’t know
The radio’s on, you’re tuning me out,
I’m trying to speak, you’re turning me down

And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody new
But I wish you the best, I guess.
‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
Just how to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Oh I wish you’d understand
Oh, just an ordinary man
Wish that we had known
Everybody knows, but nobody really knows
And I know one day you’ll see, nobody has it easy
I still can’t believe you found somebody new
I wish you the best, I guess.

‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
Just how to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

EVERYDAY (James Taylor)
Comment: Also a fun dance with a cousin, classmate, friend or close friend.

Everyday its getting closer
Going faster than a roller coaster
A love like yours would surely come my way

Everday seems a little faster
All my friends they say go on up and ask her
A love like yours would surely come my way

Everyday it seems a little stronger
Everyday it lasts a little longer
Come what may do you ever long for
True love from me

Everyday seems a little closer
Going faster than a roller coaster
A love like yours would surely come my way
A love like yours would surely come my way

EVERYTIME (Janet Jackson)
Comment: A song about being afraid to fall in love again.

I’m afraid I’m starting to feel
What I said I would not do
The last time really hurt me

I’m scared to fall in love
Afraid to love so fast
‘Cause everytime I fall in love
It seems to never last
But every time your love is near
And every time I’m filled with fear
‘Cause everytime I see your face
My heart does begin to race every time

One half want me to go
Other half wants me to stay
I just get so all confused
I’m scared to fall in love
Afraid to love so fast
‘Cause every time I fall in love
It seems to never last

But every time your love is near
And every time I’m filled with fear
‘Cause every time
My heart does begin to race every time

I’m scared to fall in love
Afraid to love so fast
‘Cause every time I fall in love
It seems to never last

Every time your love is near
And every time I’m filled with fear
‘Cause every time I see your face
My heart does begin to race every time

Every time your love is near
And every time I’m filled with fear
‘Cause every time I see your face
Could it be that this will be the one that lasts
The fear does start to erase every time
Oh could it be that this will be the one that lasts
For all my times
For all my times

FALLEN (Lauren Wood)
Comment: This song has a nice beat. It became popular with the movie Pretty Woman by Julia Roberts.

I can’t believe it, you’re a dream comin’ true.
I can’t believe how I have fallen for you.
And I was not looking, was content to remain.
And it’s ironic to be back in the game.

You are the one who’s led me to the sun.
How could I know that I was lost without you…

And I want to tell you, you control my rain..
And you should know that you are life in my veins.

You are the one who’s led me to the sun.
How could I know that I was lost without you…

I can’t believe it, you’re a dream comin’ true.
I can’t believe how I have fallen for you.

And I was not looking, was content to remain.
And it’s erotic to be back in the game.

FALLING INTO YOU (Celine Dion)
Comment: If you have a guy you have a crush on, this is the perfect opportunity to let him know about it.
And what better way than to dance with him using this song.

And in your eyes I see ribbons of color
I see us inside of each other
I feel my unconscious merge with yours
And I hear a voice say, “What’s his is hers”

I’m falling into you
This dream could come true
And it feels so good falling into you

I was afraid to let you in here
Now I have learned love can’t be made in fear
The walls begin to tumble down
And I can’t even see the ground

I’m falling into you
This dream could come true
And it feels so good falling into you

Falling like a leaf, falling like a star
Finding a belief, falling where you are

Catch me, don’t let me drop!
Love me, don’t ever stop!

So close your eyes and let me kiss you
And while you sleep I will miss you

I’m falling into you
This dream could come true
And it feels so good falling into you

Falling like a leaf, falling like a star
Finding a belief, falling where you are

Falling into you
Falling into you
Falling into you

FIRE AND RAIN (James Taylor)
Comment: This is a song about finding a loyal friend amidst hardships and adversity.

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Susanne the plans they made put an end to you
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
I just cant remember who to send it to

Ive seen fire and Ive seen rain
Ive seen sunny days that I thought would never end
Ive seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that Id see you again

Wont you look down upon me, Jesus
Youve got to help me make a stand
Youve just got to see me through another day
My bodys aching and my time is at hand
And I wont make it any other way

Oh, Ive seen fire and Ive seen rain
Ive seen sunny days that I thought would never end
Ive seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that Id see you again

Been walking my mind to an easy time my back turned towards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows itll turn your head around
Well, theres hours of time on the telephone line
To talk about things to come
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

Oh, Ive seen fire and Ive seen rain
Ive seen sunny days that I thought would never end
Ive seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that Id see you, baby, one more time again, now

Thought Id see you one more time again
Theres just a few things coming my way this time around, now
Thought Id see you, thought Id see you fire and rain, now

FLYING WITHOUT WINGS (Westlife)
Comment: This song is about trying to find the real meaning of life. Nice for 18 roses dance.

Everybody’s looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You’ll find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be

Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover’s eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings

Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You’ll find it in the words of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry

You’ll find it in the deepest friendship
The kind you cherish all your life
And when you know how much that means
You’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings

So, impossible as they may seem
You’ve got to fight for every dream
Cos who’s to know which one you let go
Would have made you complete

Well, for me it’s waking up beside you
To watch the sunrise on your face
To know that I can say I love you
In any given time or place

It’s little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it’s like flying without wings
Cos you’re my special thing
I’m flying without wings

And you’re the place my life begins
And you’ll be where it ends

I’m flying without wings
And that’s the joy you bring
I’m flying without wings

FLY ME TO THE MOON (Nat King Cole)
Comment: A classic song. Great for 18 roses dance.

Poets often use many words
To say a simple thing
It takes thoughts and time and rhyme
To make a poem sing
With music and words I’ve been playing
For you I have written a song
To be sure that you’ll know what I’m saying
I’ll translate as I go along

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Let me see what Spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, darling kiss me

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing forevermore
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for evermore
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

FOREVER (Ben Harper)
Comment:

Not talkin’ ’bout a year
no not three or four
I don’t want that kind of forever
in my life anymore
forever always seems
to be around when it begins
but forever never seems
to be around when it ends
so give me your forever
please your forever
not a day less will do
from you

People spend so much time
every single day
runnin’ ’round all over town
givin’ their forever away
but no not me
I won’t let my forever roam
and now I hope I can find
my forever a home
so give me your forever
please your forever
not a day less will do
from you

Like a handless clock with numbers
an infinite of time
no not the forever found
only in the mind
forever always seems
to be around when things begin
but forever never seems
to be around when things end
so give me your forever
please your forever
not a day less will do
from you

FOREVER LOVE (Gary Barlow)
Comment:

Love it has so many beautiful faces
Sharing lives and sharing days
My love it had so many empty spaces
I’m sharing a memory now I hope that’s how it stays
Now I’m deep inside love and still breathing
She is holding my heart in her hand
I’m the closest I’ve been to believing
This could be love forever

All throughout my life the reasons I’ve demanded
But how can I reason with the reason I’m a man

In a minute I’m needing to hold her
In an hour I’m cold, cold as stone
When she leaves it gets harder and harder to face life alone
Now my dreams are filled with times when we’re together
Guess what I need from her is forever love

FOREVER YOUNG (Alphaville)
Comment:

Lets dance in style, lets dance for a while
Heaven can wait were only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We dont have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The musics for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders were getting in tune
The musics played by the madmen

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why dont they stay young

Its so hard to get old without a cause
I dont want to perish like a fading horse
Youth is like diamonds in the sun
And dimonds are forever

So many adventures couldnt happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE (Stevie Wonder or Michael McDonald)
Comment:

For once in my life Ive got someone who needs me
Someone Ive needed so long
For once unafraid I can go where life leads me
And somehow I know Ill be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Could make my dreams come true

For once in my life I wont let sorrow hurt me
Not like its hurt me before
For once Ive got someone I know wont desert me
And Im not alone anymore

For once I can say: this is mine you cant take it
As long as Ive got love I know I can make it
For once in my life Ive got someone who needs me

FOR THE FIRST TIME (Kenny Loggins)
Comment: This can be used for 18 roses dance with a guy you really, really like and probably love but remains clueless to how you actually feel about him and for the first time sees the possibility.

Are those your eyes
Is that your smile
I’ve been looking at you forever
But I never saw you before
Are these your hands holding mine
Now I wonder how I could have been so blind

And for the first time I am looking in your eyes
For the first time I’m seeing who you are
I can’t believe how much I see
when you’re looking back at me
now I understand what love is, love is
For the first time

Can this be real, Can this be true
Am I the person I was this morning
and are you the same you
It’s all so strange, how can it be
All along this love was right in front of me

And for the first time I am looking in your eyes
For the first time I’m seeing who you are
I can’t believe how much I see
when you’re looking back at me
Now I understand what love is, love is
For the first time

Such a long time ago I had given up
On finding this emotion ever again
But you’re here with me now
Yes I found you somehow and I’ve never been so sure

And for the first time I am looking in your eyes
For the first time I’m seeing who you are
Can’t believe how much I see
when you’re looking back at me
Now I understand what love is, love is
For the first time

FOR THE GIRL WHO HAS EVERYTHING (N’Sync)
Comment:

You drive a pretty car
You know how fine you are
And nobody needs to say it
They love the clothes you wear
They compliment you
And I just love the way you play it
But the only thing you dream of
Money can’t buy for you
And in my dreams
I’ll make your wish come true

(Chorus:)
For the girl who has ev’rything
I bring you love, I bring you love
‘Cause the girl who has ev’rything
Can’t get enough of my love

Why do you run and hide?
Say what you feel inside
And why must you always fake it?
Girl, you need to understand
Your heart’s here within my hands
I promise I’ll never break it
I know that you still dream of
What money can’t buy for you
And in my dreams
I’ll make your wish come true

(Repeat chorus)

(Bridge:)
If you just let me try
My baby, listen
I’ll help you find
What you’ve been missin’
You gotta listen to your heart
And not your mind

(Repeat chorus until fade)

FRAGILE (Sting/Jason Castro)
Comment: Both renditions are superb. I love the rhythm of this song which has a salsa beat to it. It is an upbeat and danceable song.

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the colour of the evening sun
Tomorrow’s rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay
Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime’s argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are
How fragile we are how fragile we are

Lloras tu y lloro yo
Y el cielo también, y el cielo también
Lloras tu y lloro yo
Que fragilidad, que fragilidad

Lloras tu y lloro yo
Y el cielo también, y el cielo también
Lloras tu y lloro yo
Que fragilidad, que fragilidad
How fragile we are how fragile we are

FRIENDS (Amii Stewart)
Comment: A good song for AVP.

Come on my friend
And leave your caution to the wind
I know you used to keep that feeling out of sight
It’s getting stronger
I feel it burning in my mind
So in teasing me it’s growing deep inside

Come on and lay your tender lips down on my skin
Show me how sweet and easy it can be
Let us stick together and make it happen

Come and make it over again
Take you to the top
Tell me have you even boards’
Come and let me love you again
Do the best I can
Let me tremble in your grip

Come on my friend
And leave your caution way behind
I wanna love your body till the morning light

Ooh watch me my friend
I feel you reaching in my mind
Though I know we’ll be in love just for one night

I keep on trying to change my thought of you again
But everything seems to be the same
I wonder where you are now
Don’t wanna lose you

Come and make it over again
Take you to the top
Tell me have you even boards’
Come on let me love you again
Do the best I can
Let me tremble in your grip

Instrumental

Lay your tender lips down on my skin
Show me how sweet and easy it can be

And let us stick together and make it happen

Ooh take you to the top
Take me to the
take me to the top
To the top
(Take me to the top)

You know I love you baby
(Do the best I can)
Now and forever

Ooooh yeah

GAME OF LOVE (Michelle Branch with Santana)
Comment: A nice upbeat song.

Tell me
Just what you want me to be
One kiss
And boom you’re the only one for me
So please tell me why
Don’t you come around no more?
‘Cause right now I’m cryin’
Outside the door
Of the candy store

(Chorus)
It just takes a little bit of this, a little bit of that
It started with a kiss now we’re up to bat
A little bit of laughs, a little bit of pain
I’m tellin’ you my babe, its all in the game of love–

–Is
Whatever you make it to be
Sunshine
Instead of this cold, lonely sea
So please gimme a try
And you’ll see for what I’m good for
It ain’t sayin’ goodbye
Its knockin’ down the door
Of your candy store

(Chorus)

You roll me, control me, console me
Please hold me!
You guide me, divide me into one–yeah!

(Make me feel good–yeah!)

So please tell me why
Don’t you come around no more?
‘Cause right now I’m dyin’
Outside the door
Of your lovin’ store

(Chorus)

(A little bit of this, a little bit of that)
Its all in this game of love, its all in the game of love
(A little bit of laughs, a little bit of pain)
All in the game of love
(A little bit of this, a little bit of that)
You roll me, control me, please hold me
(Make me feel good–yeah!)
(A little bit of laughs, a little bit of pain)
And I’m here on my own…on my own
(A little bit of this, a little bit of that)
(A little bit of laughs, a little bit of pain…)

GLORY OF LOVE (Peter Cetera)
Comment: A classic song for 18 roses dance.

Tonight it’s very clear
As we’re both lying here
There’s so many things I want to say
I will always love you
I would never leave you alone

Sometimes I just forget
Say things I might regret
It breaks my heart to see you crying
I don’t wanna lose you
I could never make it alone

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of
We’ll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

You’ll keep me standing tall
You’ll help me through it all
I’m always strong when you’re beside me
I have always needed you
I could never make it alone

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I’ll be the hero you’ve been dreaming of
We’ll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Just like a knight in shining armor
From a long time ago
Just in time I will save the day
Take you to my castle far away

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of
We’re gonna live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

We’ll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

We did it all for love
We did it all for love
We did it all for love
We did it all for love

GOD MUST HAVE SPENT A LITTLE MORE TIME ON YOU (N’Sync)
Comment:

Yeah….
Oh yes
Ohhh..yeah..
Can this be true?
Tell me, can this be real?
How can I put into words what I feel?
My life was complete
I thought I was whole
Why do I feel like I’m losing control?
I never thought that love could feel like this
and you’ve changed my world with just one kiss.
How can it be that right here with me
there’s an angel?
It’s a miracle…

Your love is like a river
Peaceful and deep
Your soul is like a secret
That I never could keep
When I look into your eyes
I know that it’s true
God must have spent…
A little more time
On you…
(A little more time, yes he did baby)

In all of creation
All things great and small
You are the one that surpasses them all
More precious than
Any diamond or pearl
They broke the mold
When you came in this world
And I’m trying hard to figure out
Just how I ever did without
The warmth of your smile
The heart of a child
That’s deep inside
Leaves me purified

Your love is like a river
Peaceful and deep (and deep)
Your soul is like a secret
That I never could keep
When I look into your eyes
I know that it’s true
God must have spent…
A little more time
On you…
(on you, on you, on you, you….on you, on you, on you, you..) ohhh…
(on you, on you, on you, you….on you, on you, on you, you..) yeah…

Never thought that love could feel like this
and you changed my world with just one kiss.
How can it be that right here with me

On you…

God must have spent…
A little more time
on you
(on you, on you..you….you..oooh..yeah)
A little more time
on you…ohhh

GRAVITY (Sara Bareilles)
Comment: A great song for 18 roses dance with someone you love.

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I’ll still feel you here ’til the moment I’m gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your reign.

[CHORUS:]
Set me free, leave me be. I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.
But you’re on to me and all over me.

You loved me ’cause I’m fragile.
When I thought that I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone.

[CHORUS]

I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you’re everything I think I need here on
The ground.
But you’re neither friend nor foe though I can’t seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down

HAVEN’T MET YOU YET (Michael Buble)
Comment: A cute song nice for 18 roses and also can be used for an upbeat grand entrance.

I’m not surprised,
Not everything lasts,
I’ve broken my heart so many times I stopped keeping track.
Talk myself in,
I talk myself out,
I get all worked up,
Then I let myself down,

I tried so very hard not to loose it;
I came up with a million excuses,
I thought I thought of every possibility,

And I know some day that it’ll all turn out,
You’ll make me work so we can work to work it out,
And I promise you kid that I give so much more than I get~ mmm…….
I just haven’t met you yet.

Mmmmm ….

I might have to wait,
I’ll never give up,
I guess it’s half timin’, and the other half’s luck,
Wherever you are,
Whenever it’s right,
You’ll come outta nowhere and into my life.

And I know that we can be so amazin’,
And baby your love is gonna change me,
And now I can see every possibility, mmmmmm….

Somehow I know that it’ll all turn out,
You’ll make me work so we can work to work it out,
And promise you kid, I’ll give so much more than I get, mmmm….
I just haven’t met you yet.

They say all’s fair
in love and war
But I won’t need to fight it,
we’ll get it right an’,
we’ll be united

Instrumental

and I know that we can be so amazin’,
And bein’ in your life is gonna change me,
And now I can see every single possibility, mmmmmm

And someday I know it’ll all turn out,
And I’ll work to work it out,
Promise you kid I’ll give more than I get
Than I get, than I get, than I get.

Oh, you know it’ll all turn out,
and you’ll make me work so we can work to work it out,
And promise you kid to give so much more than I get, yeah
I just haven’t met you yet.

I just haven’t met you yet,
Oh, promise you kid,
To give so much more than I get.

I said love love love love love love love…..
I just haven’t met you yet
Love love love …..
So doy day ay ay ay, ay ay yeah
I just haven’t met you yet!

HEART OF LIFE (John Mayer)
Comment: A nice song for 18 roses with an uncle or a friend. A song about how life is, aches and pains that it brings, but still, life is good.

I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There’s things you need to hear
So turn off your tears
And listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won’t all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

You know, it’s nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
But, then your circle of friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won’t all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who’s misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good
I know it’s good

HER MORNING ELEGANCE (Oren Lavie)
Comment: Well, I just love this song, but you can use this in your AVP. This basically describes a woman’s daily routine like waking up with her morning elegance and then having to go through life’s random things.

Sun been down for days
A pretty flower in a vase
A slipper by the fireplace
A cello lying in its case

Soon she’s down the stairs
Her morning elegance she wears
The sound of water makes her dream
Awoken by a cloud of steam
She pours a daydream in a cup
A spoon of sugar sweetens up

And She fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And She goes…
Nobody knows

Sun been down for days
A winter melody she plays
The thunder makes her contemplate
She hears a noise behind the gate
Perhaps a letter with a dove
Perhaps a stranger she could love

And She fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And She goes…
Nobody knows

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
Where people are pleasently strange
And counting the change
And She goes…
Nobody knows

HEY THERE DELILAH (Plain White T’s)
Comment:

Hey there Delilah
What’s it like in New York City?
I’m a thousand miles away
But girl, tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Times Square can’t shine as bright as you
I swear it’s true

Hey there Delilah
Don’t you worry about the distance
I’m right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice, it’s my disguise
I’m by your side

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me, girl
Someday I’ll pay the bills with this guitar
We’ll have it good
We’ll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I’ve got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I’d write it all
Even more in love with me you’d fall
We’d have it all

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we’ll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you’re to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don’t you miss me
Two more years and you’ll be done with school
And I’ll be making history like I do
You’ll know it’s all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here’s to you
This one’s for you

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
What you do to me.

I BELIEVE IN LOVE (Paula Cole)
Comment: A very cute upbeat song about love.

It all started nine years ago
You sat to my left back in school
The future showed itself to me
The God in you, the God in me, stood together like two trees

I was so shy to inquire
If you would like tea sometime
Then in my mercury
Hand on hand, hand on knee, mercy mercy mercy me
Hand on hand, hand on knee, mercy mercy

And I believe in love
To be the center of all things
And I believe in love to be the way
And I believe in love
To be the center of all things
And I believe in love to be the way
To find our inner light

I saw a vision where we
Were opening presents christmas day
But we were not all alone
The wedding was shotgun
We had a daughter and a son

So how cruel to realize
You had a woman all the time umm hmm
But my love burns bright as the sun
The clouds may come, the clouds may go
And Ill still be here at your door
The clouds may come, the clouds may go
And Ill still be here

And I believe in love
To be the center of all things
And I believe in love to be the way
And I believe in love
To be the center of all things
And I believe in love to be the way
To find our inner light

Thank you for waiting through my lovers
Knowing we could come home to each other
Yes, I have waited through these winters
My true love was waiting here yeah

And I believe in love
To be the center of all things
And I believe in love to be the way
And I believe in love
To be the center of all things
And I believe in love to be the way

And I believe in love, love, love
I belive in love
Ill go on lovin, Ill go on lovin
I believe in love, love yes
Oooo hooo oh

I BELIEVE IN YOU (Joshua Kadison)
Comment: An inspirational song for your AVP.

Sometimes I wish this world was an easier place
And when I see those tears falling from your face
I pray, little angel, don’t give up on yourself
Don’t let nothin’ get you down
Just keep on reaching for your higher group

If you could only see yourself through my eyes
If I could only help you to realize
That there’s a light inside of you
I can see it shinin’ all around
Just keep on reaching for your higher ground

Cause I believe in you sure as a smile lights up a child’s face
I believe in you sure as the stars do shine in velvet space
I believe in you sure as the morning sun kisses the sky
I believe in you, with every beat of my heart hear me testify
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
Yes, I believe in you

I see you tryin’ so hard to be who it is you wanna be
Precious angel, don’t you know
You’re already everything to me
And though sometimes it seems a cold
Hard rain’s tryna keep your visions down
Just keep on reaching for your higher ground

Cause I believe in you sure as a smile lights up a child’s face
I believe in you sure as the stars do shine in velvet space
I believe in you sure as the morning sun kisses the sky
I believe in you, with every beat of my heart hear me testify
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe

Oh, I believe in you sure as the autumn leaves
Dance to the ground
I believe in you sure as Heaven
Only knows what spins this world around
I believe in you sure as the spring does melt a winter’s snow
I believe in you sure as the light you shine touches my soul
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
Yes, I believe in you

So, please, little angel, don’t give up on yourself
Don’t let nothin’ get you down
Just keep on reaching for your higher ground

I CAN GO THE DISTANCE (Michael Bolton)
Comment: An inspirational song for your AVP.

I have often dreamed of a far off place,
Where a great warm welcome would be waiting for me
Where the crowds would cheer, when they see my face,
And a voice keeps saying this is where I’m meant to be…

I’ll be there someday, i can go the distance,
I will find my way
, if i can be strong.

I know every mile will be worth my while,
When I go almost anywhere, to feel like I belong…

Instrumental

I’m on my way, i can go the distance,
I dont care how far, somehow ill be strong,
I know every mile would be worth my while,
I will go almost anywhere, to find where I belong…

I CLOSE MY EYES AND THINK OF YOU (Shirley and Daniel)
Comment: A nice song for 18 roses dance.

Whenever I’m lonely
Whenever I’m feeling blue
Whenever my heart is weary
I close my eyes and think of you

Whenever the rain falls
Whenever the world is cruel
Whenever my heart is weary
I close my eyes and think of you

While other people chasing reasons to grow old
I got you to see me through
You’re my only one

When oddness is growing
And everything seems untrue
Whenever my heart is weary
I close my eyes and think of you

When shadows are cruising
When the sunshine just can’t get through
Whenever my heart is weary
I close my eyes and think of you

While other people chasing reasons to grow old
I got you to see me through
You’re my only one

Instrumental

While other people chasing reasons to grow old
I got you to see me through
You’re my only one

Whenever I’m lonely
Whenever I’m feeling blue
Whenever the rain falls
Whenever the world is cruel
When shadows are cruising
When sunshine just can’t get through
Whenever my heart is weary
I close my eyes and think of you (3x)

IF I NEVER KNEW YOU (Jon Secada and Shanice)
Comment:

[:Jon:]
If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be

And if I never held you
I would never have a clue
How at last I’d find in you
The missing part of me

In this world so full of fear
Full of rage and lies
I can see the truth so clear
In your eyes
So dry your eyes

And I’m so grateful to you
I’d have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

[:Shanice:]
If I never knew you
I’d be safe but half as real
Never knowing I could feel
A love so strong and true

I’m so grateful to you
I’d have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

[:Jon:]
I thought our love would be so beautiful

[:Shanice:]
Somehow we made the whole world bright

[:Both:]
I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong
All they’d leave us where these whispers in the night
But still my heart is singing
We were right

[:Shanice:]
If I never knew you
If I never knew this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be

[:Jon:]
There’s no moment I regret
Since the moment that we met
If our time has gone too fast
I’ve lived at last…

[:Both:]
I thought our love would be so beautiful
Somehow we’d make the whole world bright

[:Shanice:]
I thought our love would be so beautiful
We’d turn the darkness into light

[:Both:]
And still my heart is singing
We were right

[:Jon:]
We were right
And If I never knew you
I’d have lived my whole life through

[:Shanice:]
Empty as the sky

[:Both:]
Never knowing why
Lost forever
If I never knew you

I FOUND A REASON (Cat Power)
Comment:

Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better than what came before

And youd better come come, come come to me
Better come come, come come to me
Better run, run run, run run to me
Better come

Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better that what came before

And youd better run run, run run to me
Better run, run run, run run to me
Better come, come come, come come to me
Youd better run

I MELT WITH YOU (Jason Mraz)
Comment: Another upbeat song that would be easy to dance with.

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
You’ve seen the difference and
It’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
(You should know better)
Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
(You should see why)
Dropped in the state of imaginary grace
(You should know better)
I made a pilgrimage to save this human race
(You should see why)
Never comprehending a race that long gone by
(I’ll stop the world)
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
(I’ll stop the world)
You’ve seen the difference and it’s getting better all the time
(Let’s stop the world)
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
(Let’s stop the world)
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
The future’s open wide
(Let’s stop the world)
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
(Let’s stop the world)
I’ve seen some changes but it’s getting better all the time
(Let’s stop the world)
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
(Let’s stop the world)
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
The future’s open wide
hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
(Let’s stop the world)
You’ve seen the difference and it’s getting better all the time
(Let’s stop the world)
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
(Let’s stop the world)
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
(Let’s stop the world)
I’ll stop the world and melt with you…

I’M YOURS (Jason Mraz)
Comment: A nice upbeat danceable song with a classmate, friend or a cousin.

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to get you but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
and I’m trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I’ll be giving it my bestest
Nothin’s going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some

I won’t hesitate no more
no more it cannot wait, I’m yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love
Listen to the music of the moment maybe sing with me
Ah la peaceful melody
It’s your godforsaken right to be loved love loved love love

So I won’t hesitate no more
No more it cannot wait I’m sure
Theres no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours

I been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bendin over backwards just to try to see it clearer
My breath fogged up the glass
So I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what I’m sayin is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

I won’t hesitate no more
No more it cannot wait I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate
Our time is short
It cannot wait, I’m yours

IN YOUR EYES (George Benson)
Comment:

I think I finally know you
I can see beyond your smile
I think that I can show you
That what we have is still worthwhile
Don’t you know that love’s just like the thread
That keeps unravelling but then
It ties us back together in the end

(Chorus)
In your eyes, I can see my dream’s reflections
In your eyes, found the answers to my questions
In your eyes, I can see the reasons why our love’s alive
In your eyes, we’re drifting safely back to shore
And I think I’ve finally learned to love you more

You warned me that life changes
That no one really knows
Whether time would make us strangers
Or whether time would make us grow
Even though the winds of time will change
In a world where nothing stays the same
Through it all our love will still remain

(Repeat Chorus)
In your eyes, I can see the reasons why our love’s alive
In your eyes, we’re drifting safely back to shore
And I think I’ve finally learned to love you more

IT’S MY TIME (Jade Ewen)
Comment: An inspirational song. Nice for AVP and 18 roses dance.

I’ve been down, down so long
But those days are gone now
I’ve got the will I’ve earned the right
To show you it’s my time tonight

Chorus
It’s my time, it’s my time
My moment, I’m not gonna let go of it
My time, it’s my time
And I’ll stand proud
There’s nothing I’m afraid of
I’ll show you what I’m made of
Show you that it’s my time now

I’ll break through I’ve made my move
And my faith is strong now
I’ve got the heart to reach the heights
To show you it’s my time tonight

Chorus
It’s my time, it’s my time
My moment, I’m not gonna let go of it
My time, it’s my time
And I’ll stand proud
There’s nothing I’m afraid of
I’ll show you what I’m made of
Show you that it’s my time now

I’ve got the will I’ve earned the right
Tonight, tonight …..

Chorus
It’s my time, it’s my time
My moment, I’m not gonna let go of it
My time, it’s my time
And I’ll stand proud
There’s nothing I’m afraid of
I’ll show you what I’m made of
Show you that it’s my time now

IT IS YOU I HAVE LOVED (Becky Taylor)
Comment:

There is something that I see in the way you look at me
There’s a smile, there’s a truth in your eyes
What an unexpected way on this unexpected day
Could it be, this is where I belong
It is you I have loved all along

No more mystery, it is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
And it is you I have loved all along

There are times I run to hide
Afraid to show the other side
Alone in the night without you

But now I know just who you are
And I know you hold my heart
Finally this is where I belong
It is you I have loved all along

No more mystery, it is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
And it is you I have loved all along

Oh, over and over I’m filled with emotion
Your love, it rushes through my veins
And I am filled with the sweetest devotion
As I, I look into your perfect face

No more mystery, it is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
And it is you I have loved all along
It is you I have loved
It is you I have loved all along

I WISH YOU LOVE (Michael Buble)

I wish you bluebirds in the spring,
To give your heart a song to sing
And then a kiss, but more than this I wish you love.

And in July, a lemonade,
To cool you in some leafy glade
I wish you health and more than wealth, I wish you love.

My breaking heart and I agree
That you and I could never be,
So with my best, my very best, I set you free.

I wish you shelter from the storm,
A cozy fire to keep you warm;
But most of all, when snowflakes fall,
I wish you love.

JOURNEY (Corrinne May)
Comment: This is a song about going through our journey in life with Jesus, never faltering and always keeping the faith.

It’s a long long journey
Till I know where I’m supposed to be
It’s a long long journey
And I don’t know if I can believe
When shadows fall and block my eyes
I am lost and know that I must hide
It’s a long long journey
Till I find my way home to you

Many days I’ve spent
Drifting on through empty shores
Wondering what’s my purpose
Wondering how to make me strong

I know I will falter
I know I will cry
I know you’ll be standing by my side
It’s a long long journey
And I need to be close to you

Sometimes it feels no one understands
I don’t even know why
I do the things I do
When pride builds me up till I can’t see my soul
Will you break down these walls and pull me through

Cause It’s a long long journey
Till I feel that I am worth the price
You paid for me on calvary
Beneath those stormy skies

When Satan mocks and friends turn to foes
It feels like everything is out to make me lose control
It’s a long long journey
Till I find my way home to you
To you

JOURNEY (Lea Salonga)
Comment: An inspirational song that delves into the journey of a person. Nice for 18 roses dance and AVP.

Half the world is sleeping,
half the world’s awake
half can hear their hearts beat
half just hear them break

I am but a traveler, in most every way
Ask me what you want…to know

What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
and they’re bound to guide my way

When they’re shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won’t let the darkness in,
what a journey it has been.

I have been to sorrow
I have been to bliss
Where I’ll be tomorrow,
I can only guess

Through the darkest desert
Through the deepest snow,
Forward always forward, I go..

What a journey it has been
and the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
and they’re bound to guide my way

When they’re shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won’t let the darkness in,
what a journey it has been…

Forward, always forward…
Onward, always up…
Catching every drop of hope
In my empty cup

What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
and they’re bound to guide my way

When they’re shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won’t let the darkness in,
what a journey it has been…

What a journey it has been…

JUST A DREAM (Eric Roberson)
Comment:

I had a dream we’re
slow dancing to the ocean waves
under a half exposed moon
so secure
if you stayed here forever we
still would have to go
go and leave too soon
but its all just a dream (just a dream)
the next day you didn’t know me
and its all just a dream (just a dream)
the next day you didn’t hold me
and it hurts, hurts so bad
to have my sweet next day remind me

my sweet next day remind me
that its all just a dream away

i had a dream
that you wrote me a letter
oh your kisses played so gently
over every sentence formed
oh it felt so warm
and the words you wrote them with so much conviction
sweet like your perfumed neck that you rubbed the paper on
but it was all just a dream (just a dream)
the next day you didn’t know me
and its all just a dream (just a dream)
the next day and you didn’t hold me
and it hurts
girl it hurts to have my sweet next day remind me

nananana…

my sweet next day remind me

nananana…

that its all just a dream away

nananana…

KEY TO MY HEART (Craig David)
Comment: I love the rhythm of the song, an upbeat and danceable song, although the message is not really ideal.

Lonely hours, Lonely days,
Never meant to drive you away from me,
I shouldda listened to ya lady and what you had to say, If only…
I never knew how much you feel for somebody after you’ve let them go (let them go)
And you find out that it’s too late to let your feelings show (feelings show)
And even though I’ve done u so wrong
Don’t you know, like I know, baby…

You see you’ve got the key to my heart, girl
Unlock me and take all my feelings apart
Coz when u said you had to leave, had to go away,
You closed the door on me; you threw away the key…

I’m starting over; I’m feeling down,
Still can’t believe that you’re not around.
I shouldda been there for you, baby..
But now I’m crying on this melody tonight…

I didn’t realize there’s no other remedy to numb this pain (numb this pain)
But if you come back in my life then maybe I can start to live again (live again)
And even though you’re being so strong
Don’t you know, like I know, baby…

You see you’ve got the key to my heart, key to my heart girl
Unlock me and take all my feelings apart
Coz when u said you had to leave, had to go away,
You closed the door on me; you threw away the key…

And everyday and night I’m thinking about you constantly
Now I know for sure how much you really mean to me, yeah
Sometimes I get a rush and I see, how we were meant to be, lady…

You see you’ve got the key to my heart, key to my heart girl
Unlock me and take all my feelings apart
Coz when u said you had to leave, had to go away,
You closed the door on me; you threw away the key…

LET ME BE THE ONE (Matthew Sweet)
Comment: A song for a dance with someone who is always there for you.

Some sleepless nights
If you should find yourself alone

Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to
Let me be the one

To set things right
When this whole world turns upside down

For love and understand me
To find a quiet place
For silent understanding
A loving touch

Come to me when things go wrong
And there’s no love to light the way

Let me be the one you run to
Let me be the one you come to
When you need someone to turn to
Let me be the one.

LET’S STAY TOGETHER (Al Green-How to lose a guy in 10 days soundtrack)
Comment: A dance with a special someone, you’re makeup and breakup guy.

I’m, I’m so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is alright with me
‘Cause you make me feel, so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Me sayin’ since, baby, since we’ve been together
Ooo, loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me, be the one you come running to
I’ll never be untrue
Ooo baby

Let’s, let’s stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Oooo oooo ooo ooo, yeah
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why somebody, why people break up
Oh, and turn around and make up
I just can’t seeeeeeeee
You’d never do that to me
(Would you baby)
‘Cause being around you is all I see
It’s why I want us to

Let’s, let’s stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Let’s, let’s stay together
Loving you whether, whether

LIQUID DREAMS (O-Town)
Comment:

Posters of love surrounding me, lost in the world of fantasy
Every night she comes to me and gives me all the love I need.

Now this hot girl, she’s not your average girl
She’s a morpharotic dream from a magazine
And she’s so fine designed to blow your mind
She’s a dominatrix supermodel beauty queen

I dream about a girl who’s a mix of Destiny’s Child
Just a little touch Madonna’s wild style
With Janet Jackson’s smile, throw in a body like Jennifers’
You’ve got the star of my liquid dream

Angelina Jolie’s lips to kiss in the dark
Underneath Cindy C’s beauty mark
When it comes to the test well Tyra’s the best
And Salma Hayek brings the rest

Now this hot girl, she’s not your average girl
She’s a morpharotic dream from a magazine
And she’s so fine designed to blow your mind
She’s a dominatrix supermodel beauty queen

I dream about a girl who’s a mix of Destiny’s Child
Just a little touch Madonna’s wild style
And Janet Jackson’s smile, throw in a body like Jennifers’
You’ve got the star of my liquid dreams

Looks ain’t everything she’s got the sweetest personality
Like Halle B
My mama thinks I’m lazy, my friend all think I’m crazy
But in my mind, I leave the world behind every night I dream
Oh.

Liquid Dreams, my Liquid Dreams
Waterfall and streams, these liquid dreams

I dream about a girl who’s a mix of Destiny’s Child
Just little touch of Madonna’s wild style
With Janet Jackson’s smile
Throw in a body like Jennifer’s
You’ve got the star of my liquid dreams
My liquid dreams
(repeat x3)

LONGER (Dan Fogelberg)
Comment:

Longer than there have been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there have been stars up in the heavens
I’ve been in love with you.

Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you.

Ill bring fires in the winters
Youll send showers in the springs
We’ll fly through the falls and summers
With love on our wings.

Through the years as the fire starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the pages start to yellow
I’ll be in love with you.

Longer than there have been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there have been stars up in the heavens
I’ve been in love with you
I am in love with you..

LOVE IS HARD (James Morrison)
Comment:

I see lovers in the streets walking,
without a care.
They wear it out loud
like there’s something in the air
Oooooh, well i don’t care

They’re treading lightly
No they, don’t sink in
There’s no tracks to follow
they don’t care where they going
hmm

And if they’re lucky yeah they’ll,
they’ll get to see and if they’re
really really lucky they’ll
get to feel..

And it kicks so hard,
it breaks your bones.
Cuts so deep
it hits your soul.
Tears your skin and
makes your blood flow.
It’s better that you know,
That love is hard.

Love takes hostages,
gives them pain.
gives someone the power to
hurt you again and again
oooh, but they don’t care

And if they’re lucky yeah they’ll,
they’ll get to see and if they’re
really really lucky they’ll
they’ll get to feel.
And if they’re, they’re truely blessed
then they’ll get to believe
and if you’re dammed, you’ll never
let youreself be deceived.

And it kicks so hard,
it breaks your bones.
Cuts so deep
it hits your soul.
Tears your skin and
makes your blood flow.
It’s beter that you know,
That love is hard.

Hmmmmmmm…

Kicks so hard,
it breaks your bones.
Cuts so deep
it hits your soul.
Tears your skin and
makes your blood flow.
It’s beter that we know..

And it kicks so hard,
it breaks your bones.
Cuts so deep
it hits your soul.
Tears your skin and
And makes your blood flow.
It’s beter that you know,
That love is hard..

love is hard, love is hard.

If it was easy,
it wouldn’t mean nothing tough.

LOVE SONG (Sara Bareilles)
A cute upbeat song for your 18s.

Head under water
And you tell me to breathe easy for a while
The breathing gets harder, even I know that
Made room for me but it’s too soon to see
If I’m happy in your hands

I’m unusually hard to hold on to
Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me
I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s
Make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I’m gonna need a better
Reason to write you a love song today

I learned the hard way
That they all say things you want to hear
And my heavy heart sinks deep down under you and
Your twisted words,
Your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry
Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I’m trying to let you hear me as I am

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s
Make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I’m gonna need a better
Reason to write you a love song today

Promise me that you’ll leave the light on
To help me see with daylight, my guide, gone
’cause I believe there’s a way you can love me
Because I say
I won’t write you a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s make or break in this
Is that why you wanted a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don’t want it for a minute
Babe, I’ll walk the seven seas when I believe that
There’s a reason to
Write you a love song today

LOVE SONG FOR NO ONE (John Mayer)
Comment: A nice upbeat song but still danceable and cute. A song for a classmate or a friend.

Staying home alone on a Friday
flat on the floor looking back
on old love, or lack thereof

After all the crushes have faded
and all my wishful thinking was wrong
I’m jaded, I hate it

I’m tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here

Searching all my days to find you
not sure what I’m looking for
I’ll know where
when I see you

Until then I’ll hide in my bedroom
just staying up all night just to write
a love song
for no one

I’m tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
could I have missed my chance and watched you walk away

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
could I have missed my chance and watched you walk away

I’m tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here

you’ll be so good
you’ll be so good for me
I know you’ll be so good
for me
for me

LUCKY (Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat)
Comment: I really love this song. It is just so cute and danceable. This is basically about bestfriends falling in love.

(Jason)
Do you hear me,
I’m talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I’m trying

(Colbie)
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

(Both)
I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh, ooooh, oooh, oooh,
Oooh ooh ooh ooh

(Both)
They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you I promise you, I will

(Both)
I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

(Jason)
And so I’m sailing through the sea
To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music fill the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair

(Colbie)
Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

(Both)
I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh, ooooh, oooh, oooh,
Oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooooh, ooooh, oooh, oooh,
Oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.

MAKE IT MINE (Jason Mraz)
Comment: Nice for AVP.

Wake up everyone
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you
Listen to your voice
The one that tells you
to taste past the tip of
your tongue
Leap and the net will appear

I don’t wanna wake before
The dream is over
I’m gonna make it mine
Yes I… I want to own it
I’m gonna make it mine
Yes I’ll make it all mine

I keep my life on a heavy rotation
Requesting that it’s lifting you up
Up up and away
And over to a table at
the graditude cafe

And I am finally there
And all the angels they’ll be singing
Ah la la la I la la la I
la la la la love this

Well I don’t wanna break before
The tour is over
I’m gonna make it mine
That’s fine…I want to own it
I’m gonna make it mine
Yes I’ll make it all mine

And timing’s everything
And this time there’s plenty
I am balancing
Careful and steady
And reveling in energy that
everyone’s emitting

I don’t wanna wait no more
Oh, I wanna celebrate the whole world
I’m gonna make it mine
Because I’m following your joy
I’m gonna make it mine
Because I… I am open
I’m gonna make it mine
That’s why… I’m wanna show it
I’m gonna make it mine
gonna make gonna make gonna make it
make it mine
It’s mine…
It’s mine…
Ohhhhhhh mine
Yes I will make it all make it all mine

MAKE YOU FEEL MY LOVE (Adele)
Comment: A nice dance with someone special.

When the rain
Is blowing in your face
And the whole world
Is on your case
I could offer you
A warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows
And the stars appear
And there is no one there
To dry your tears
I could hold you
For a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you
Haven’t made
Your mind up yet
But I would never
Do you wrong
I’ve known it
From the moment
That we met
No doubt in my mind
Where you belong

I’d go hungry
I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling
Down the avenue
No, there’s nothing
That I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging
On the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
Though winds of change
Are throwing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing
Like me yet

I could make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends
Of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love

MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE (John Mayer)

Just cast away and I am lost at sea
Another lonely day and no one here but me
More loneliness than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair

I send an s.o.s. to the world
I send an s.o.s. to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle
Message in a bottle

A year has passed since I wrote my note
I should have known it right from the start
Only hope can keep us together
Love can mend your life but love can break your heart

I send an s.o.s. to the world
I send an s.o.s. to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle
Message in a bottle

Walked out this morning I dont believe what I saw
A hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore
Seems Im not alone at being alone
A hundred billion castaways all looking for a home

I send an s.o.s. to the world
I send an s.o.s. to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle
Message in a bottle

Sending out an s.o.s.

Comment: A cute song for 18 roses dance.

Midnight bottle take me calmly through my memories and everything come back to me
Midnight bottle make it real what feels like make believe so I can see a little more clearly
Like every single move you make kissing me so carefully on the corners of my dreaming eyes

I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna drink it down
A one way ticket takes me to the times we had before
When everything felt so right
If only for tonight I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna ease my pain
From all these feelings driving me insane
I think of you and everything’s all right if only for tonight
Got a midnight bottle drifting off into the candlelight where I can find you any old time
A midnight bottle I forgot how good it felt to be in a dream just like you had me
Cause lately I’ve been stumbling feels like I’m recovering
But I think it’s only for tonight

I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna drink it down
A one way ticket takes me to the times we had before
When everything felt so right
If only for tonight I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna ease my pain
From all these feelings driving me insane
I think of you and everything’s all right if only for tonight
If only for tonight, if only for tonight, if only for tonight

I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna drink it down
A one way ticket takes me to the times we had before
When everything felt so right
If only for tonight I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna ease my pain
From all these feelings driving me insane
I think of you and everything’s all right if only for tonight
If only for tonight, if only for tonight, if only for tonight

MISTY (Johnny Mathis)
Comment: For 18 roses dance with a person dear to you who you know loves you and is professing his love for you. You may or may not reciprocate but you love his company and always want to be with him.

Look at me, I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I’m clingin to a cloud,
I can’t understand
I get misty, just holding your hand

Walk my way, and a thousand violins begin to play,
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty, the moment you’re near

You can say that you’re leading me on
But it’s just what I want you to do
Don’t you notice how hopelessly I’m lost
That’s why I’m following you

On my own, would I wander through this wonderland alone?
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I’m too misty, and too much in love

Instrumental

On my own, would I wander through this wonderland alone?
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I’m too misty, and too much in love

Look at me…

MOONRIVER (Audrey Hepburn-music from Breakfast at Tiffany’s)
Comment: This is a cute version of this song and can be used to dance with practically anybody.

Moon river, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re goin’, i’m goin’ your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

(moon river, wider than a mile)
(i’m crossin’ you in style some day)
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re goin’, i’m goin’ your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after that same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

MY GIRL (The Temptations)
Comments: This song is sweet but not really specific. It is a generic choice so you can dance with anyone with this song.

I’ve got sunshine
On a cloudy day.
When it’s cold outside,
I’ve got the month of May.

Well, I guess you’ll say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl. (My girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl. (My girl)

I’ve got so much honey
The bees envy me.
I’ve got a sweeter songThan the birds in the trees.

Well, I guess you’ll say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl. (My girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl. (My girl)

Ooooh, Hoooo.

Hey, hey, hey.
Hey, hey, hey.

I don’t need no money,
Fortune or fame.
I’ve got all the riches, baby,
One man can claim.

Well, I guess you’ll say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl. (My girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl. (My girl)

Talkin’ bout my girl.
I’ve got sushine on cloudy day
With my girl.
I’ve even got the month of May
With my girl.

MY ONE AND ONLY LOVE (Sting)
Comment: A very nice song by sting that is so soothing and is good for a slow dance with your boyfriend.

The very thought of you makes
My heart sing
Like an April breeze
On the wings of spring
And you appear in all your splendour
My one and only love

The shadows fall
And spread their mystic charms
In the hush of night
While you’re in my arms
I feel your lips so warm and tender
My one and only love

The touch of your hand is like heaven
A heaven that I’ve never known
The blush on your cheek
Whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own

You fill my eager heart with
Such desire
Every kiss you give
Sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

The blush on your cheek
Whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own
You fill my eager heart with
Such desire
Every kiss you give
Sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

NEED YOU NOW (Lady Antebellum)
Comment: Nice country music feel for an 18 roses dance.

Picture perfect memories,
Scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone cause, I can’t fight it anymore.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me it happens all the time.

It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn’t come, but I lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now.

Another shot of whiskey, cant stop looking at the door.
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me it happens all the time.

It’s a quarter after one, I’m a little drunk,
And I need you now.
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now.

Yes I’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn’t call
but I’m a little drunk and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now.
I just need you now.
Oh baby I need you now.

NEVER KNEW LOVE LIKE THIS BEFORE (Stephanie Mills)
Comment: This is a nice upbeat danceable song that is so nice for 18 roses dance. Good for a swing type of dance.

I never knew love like this before
Now I’m lonely never more
Since you came into my life

You are my lovelight, this I know
And I’ll never let you go
You my all, you’re heart, part of me

Once I was lost and now I’m found
Then you turned my world around
When I need you, I call your name

‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before
Opened my eyes
‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before
What a surprise

‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before

This feeling’s so deep inside of me
Such a tender fantasy
You’re the one I’m living for

You are my sunlight and my rain
And time could never change
What we share forever more
Ooooh-whooooa

I never knew love like this before
Now I’m lonely never more
Since you came into my life

‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before
Opened my eyes
‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before
What a surprise
‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before

You are my lovelight, this I know
And I’ll never let you go
You my all, you’re part of me
Once I was lost and now I’m found
And you turned my world around
When I need you, I call your name

‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before
Opened my eyes
‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before
What a surprise
‘Cause I never
Knew love like this before
Inside of me
(I never) never
Knew love like this before
Opened my eyes

(Never) never, (never) never

NO AIR (Jordin Sparks with Chris Brown)
Comment: A dance with a special someone.

Tell me how I’m supposed to breathe with no air?

[Jordin]
If I should die before I wake
It’s cause you took my breath away
Losing you is like living in a world with no air, oh

[Chris]
I’m here alone, didn’t wanna leave
My heart won’t move, it’s incomplete
Wish there was a way that I can make you understand

[Jordin]
But how
Do you expect me, to live alone with just me?
‘Cause my world revolves around you
It’s so hard for me to breathe

[Chorus-Both]
Tell me how I’m supposed to breathe with no air?
Can’t live, can’t breathe with no air
That’s how I feel whenever you ain’t there
There’s no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon live without me?
If you ain’t here, I just can’t breathe
There’s no air, no air
No air air, No air air
No air air, No air air

[Chris]
I walked, I ran, I jumped, I flew,
Right off the ground to float to you
There’s no gravity to hold me down, for real

[Jordin]
But somehow I’m still alive inside
You took my breath but I survived
I don’t know how but I don’t even care

[Both]
So how do you expect me, to live alone with just me?
‘Cause my world revolves around you
It’s so hard for me to breathe

[Chorus-Both]
Tell me how I’m supposed to breathe with no air?
Can’t live, can’t breathe with no air
That’s how I feel whenever you ain’t there
There’s no air, no air

Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you goin live without me?
If you ain’t here I just can’t breathe
There’s no air, no air
No air air, No air air
No air air, No air air

No more

No air

Baby

There’s no air, no air

Hey, oOoOo

Oooooooooooooh

[Chorus-Both]
Tell me how I’m supposed to breathe with no air?
Can’t live, can’t breathe with no air
That’s how I feel whenever you ain’t there
There’s no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon live without me?
If you ain’t here I just can’t breathe
There’s no air, no air
[Jordin]
(Do you expect me, to live alone with just me
Cause my world revolves around you, It’s so hard for me to breathe)

[Both]
Tell me how I’m supposed to breathe with no air?
Can’t live, can’t breathe with no air
That’s how I feel whenever you ain’t there
There’s no air, no air

[Outro-Both]
Got me out here in the water so deep

Tell me how you gonna be without me?

If you ain’t here I just can’t breathe

There’s no air, no air
No air air, No air air
No air air,

No air

NOW (MYMP)
Comment:

Now is all I know
Now is all I got
And I don’t know
If there will be tomorrow for us.

Now is all I care about
Now that you are here
Now that you’re the contents of my heart.

Now you’re all I know
Now is all I promise
And I don’t know
If there will be a future for us.

Now is all I live for
Now that you are near
And it was best that from the start it was clear.

Refrain:
Loving is not owning
We can let it go
We can let it go.

Loving is not owning
You can let me go
You can let me go.

Chorus:
There’s a reason
Why we love each other now
And we don’t know if this is forever.

There’s a reason
Why we are together now
And we don’t care if it’s not forever now.

Now is all I think about
Now that I am happy
And I’m not sure
If there will be a future for us.

Now is all I offer
It’s everything I got
And I still wish
That there will be a tomorrow for us.

(Repeat Refrain)
(Repeat Chorus)

ONCE IN A LIFETIME (Kenny Loggins with Human Nature)
Comment: A nice song for a slow dance.

Something about you
Oh, could it be I finally found
My destiny
Now here you are
Within my reach

How did I miss you? (how did I miss you)
When you were out there all the time
It took this moment
To make me realize…

Once in a Lifetime
You find your reason for living
You find the one that makes your every dream
Come true
(Find the one that makes your dreams…)
Oh I could search the world forever
But no one else could do
Cause once in a lifetime
You find someone like you

Ahh..
Once in a lifetime, ohh

I’ve waited for so long (so long)
Makin this can’t nothin be but a lie
Cause all about
Standing by wind, oohh
Alone in the crowd, oh oh oh

I went through the motion (went through the motion)
Then out of heaven you arrived
Whatever was wrong
Suddenly is right

Cause once in a lifetime
You find the reason for living
You find the one who makes your every dream
Come true
(Find the one who makes your dream…)
No, I could search the world forever
And no one else would do
Cause once in a lifetime
You find someone like you

(Find someone like you…)
Hearts that wait for love can grow so weary
(Don’t you know… a heart can grow?)
But it doesn’t matter anymore
When you find the one you’ve waited for…

You find your reason for living
You find the one that makes your every dream come … oh you make it come true

Oh you could search the world forever
But no one else would do
Cause once in a lifetime
You find someone like you…..

Cause once in a lifetime
You find someone…..
Someone like you……

(Ahhh…)
Whoaaa..

ONCE UPON A DECEMBER (Soundtrack from Anastasia)
Comment: This can be used as a waltz for the cotillion dance with a modern twist.

Dancing bears, painted wings
Things I almost remember
And a song someone sings
Once upon a December

Someone holds me safe and warm
Horses prance through a silver storm
Figures dancing gracefully
Across my memory

Instrumental

Someone holds me safe and warm.
Horses prance through a silver storm.
Figures dancing gracefully
Across my memory

Far away, long ago
Glowing dim as an ember
Things my heart
Used to know
Things it yearns to remember

And a song
Someone sings
Once upon a December

ONCE UPON A DREAM (Sleeping Beauty soundtrack)
Comment: Alternative music to waltz

I know you
I walked with you once upon a dream.
I know you
The gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
Yes, I know it’s true
that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do
You’ll love me at once
the way you did once upon a dream

ONE SONG (Joshua Kadison)
Comment: An inspirational song.

One song, one song
If I can sing this whole world just one song
One song, one song
Someone would ask, what would it be
One song, one song
If I can sing this whole world just one song
One song, one song
I said “Well, never that easy”

Keep your faith, keep your beautiful smile
You are loved, you are loved
Pass it on, pass it on
Keep your faith, keep your beautiful smile
You are loved, you are loved
Pass it on, pass it on

One light, one light
everbody knows we´re all just one light
One light, one light
Sometimes it´s hard to see
One light, one light
everbody knows we´re all just one light
One light, one light
I am you, you are me

Keep your faith, keep your beautiful smile
You are loved, you are loved
Pass it on, pass it on
Keep your faith, keep your beautiful smile
You are loved, you are loved
Pass it on, pass it on

Pass it on, pass it on
Pass it on, pass it on
Pass it on, pass it on

OUT OF MY LEAGUE (Stephen Speaks)
Comment: A dance for a guy who is admiring you from a far or is currently courting you.

It’s her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away,
and the feeling that I’m falling further in love
makes me shiver, but in a good way.
All the times I have sat and stared
as she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair,
and she purses her lips,
bats her eyes and she plays with me
sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say,
cause I love her with all that I am
and my voice shakes along with my hands,
cause she’s all that I see, and she’s all that I need,
and I’m out of my league once again.

It’s a masterful melody,
when she calls out my name to me
As the world spins around her she laughs, rolls her eyes,
and I feel like I’m falling but it’s no surprise.
cause I love her with all that I am,
and my voice shakes along with my hands,
cause it’s frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
but I’d rather be here than on land.
Yes she’s all that I see and she’s all that I need
and I’m out of my league once again.

PERFECT COMBINATION (Stacey Lattisaw)
Comment:

Two hearts together we’re a harmony so right
Two sparks united we’re a fire burning bright

Only two , always brand new
That from the jump, we had a hunch
That we have everything

Perfect combination
Lovers you and me
Perfect combination
We couldn’t ask for any better
Perfect combination
We fit to a tee
A perfect combination
We’re all it takes to last forever
Together

So deep inside we share a feeling that’s so rare
So sweet, just knowing that we are a special pair

Right on time
We’re two of a kind
and heaven knows
this love will grow
Stronger everyday

Perfect combination
Lovers you and me
Perfect combination
We couldn’t ask for any better
Perfect combination
We fit to a tee
A perfect combination
We’re all it takes to last forever
Together

We can conquer any mountain
Just as long as we’re together
Cause as one we are an endless fountain
Overflowing with love
Perfect love

Perfect combination
Lovers you and me
Perfect combination
We couldn’t ask for any better
Perfect combination
We fit to a tee
A perfect combination
We’re all it takes to last forever
Together

PLEASE DON’T STOP THE RAIN (James Morrison)
Comment: A nice song for your 18 roses, most especially the chorus part. I like James Morrison’s voice.

I dont know where I crossed the line
Was it something that I said
Or didn’t say this time?

And I don’t know if it’s me or you
I can see the skies are changing
No longer shades of blue
I don’t know which way it’s gonna go

And if it’s going to be a rainy day
Theres nothing we can do to make it change
We can pray for sunny weather
But that won’t stop the rain
You’re feeling like you’ve got no place to run
I can be your shelter til it’s done
We can make this last forever
So please don’t stop the rain
Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall
Please don’t stop the rain
Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall
Please don’t stop the rain

I thought that time was on our side
I’ve put in far too many years
To let this pass us by
You see life is crazy thing
There’ll be good times
And there’ll be bad times
And everything in between
And I don’t know which ways it’s gonna go

And if it’s going to be a rainy day
There’s nothing we can do to make it change
We can pray for sunny weather
But that won’t stop the rain
You’re feeling like you’ve got no place to run
I can be your shelter til it’s done
We can make this last forever
So please don’t stop the rain
Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall
Please don’t stop the rain
Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall
Please don’t stop the rain

Oh, were a little closer now
In finding what life’s all about
Yeah, I know you just cant stand it
When things don’t go your way
But we’ve got no control over what happens anyway

And if it’s going to be a rainy day
There’s nothing we can do to make it change
We can pray for sunny weather
But that won’t stop the rain
Feeling like you’ve got no place to run
I can be your shelter til it’s done
We can make this last forever
So please don’t stop the rain
Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall
Please don’t stop the rain
Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall

Please don’t stop the rain
Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall
Can’t stop it, you can’t stop it
Let it fall
Please don’t stop the rain

POP GOES MY HEART (Hugh Grant)
Comment: A cute song about falling in love unexpectedly.

I never thought that I could be so satisfied
Every time that I look in your angel eyes
A shock inside me that words just can’t describe
And there’s no explaining

Something in the way you move I can’t deny
Every word from your lips is a lullaby
A twist of fate makes life worthwhile
You are gold and silver

I said I wasn’t gonna lose my head
But then pop! Goes my heart
(Pop! Goes my heart)
I wasn’t gonna fall in love again
But then pop! Goes my heart
(Pop! Goes my heart)
And I just can’t let you go
I can’t lose this feeling

These precious moments we have so few
Let’s go far away where there’s nothing to do but wait
You show to me that my destiny’s with you
And there’s no explaining

Let’s fly so high
Will you come with me tonight?
In your dress I confess you’re the sole sunlight
The way you shine in the starry skies
You are gold and silver

I said I wasn’t gonna lose my head
But then pop! Goes my heart
(Pop! Goes my heart)
I wasn’t gonna fall in love again
But then pop! Goes my heart
(Pop! Goes my heart)
And I just can’t let you go
I can’t lose this feeling

A twist of fate makes life worthwhile
You are gold and silver

I said I wasn’t gonna lose my head
But then pop! Goes my heart
(Pop! Goes my heart)
I wasn’t gonna fall in love again
But then pop! Goes my heart
(Pop! Goes my heart)

I said I wasn’t gonna lose my head
But then pop! Goes my heart
(Pop! Goes my heart)
I wasn’t gonna fall in love again
But then pop! Goes my heart
(Pop! Goes my heart)
And I just can’t let you go

PRECIOUS LOVE (James Morrison)
Comment:

I was so lost, didn’t know what to do with myself,
I was my own worst enemy, I was lost and oh I needed help,
Then you came along, and saw what state I was in,
You picked me up, when I was down,
Showed me how to live again.

I say thank you, for pulling me through,
I’m a lucky man,
I was strong, and its took me so long
For me to understand,

But its precious love, oh its precious love
No I can’t let it go,
This is precious love, and its teaching me,
Everything I need to know,

This precious love, this precious love,
no I can’t get enough,
I’m down on my knees, begging you please
To give me some more of that stuff.

its Love, love, love, love, love ; precious love
Its love, love, love, love, love ; precious love

I got so distracted, by people all around,
Whispering sweet nothings, filling my head with doubt
So I gave up entering home for me to see
You think that I was missing only standing in front of me
I took you for granted for the cries scream out of the other side
I was wrong and it took so long for me to finally realize
This is precious love, precious love
No I can’t let it go,
This is precious love, and its teaching me,
Everything I need to know,

precious love, precious love,
no I can’t get enough,
I’m down on my knees, begging you please
Give me some more of that stuff.
I see a precious to you that my heart will always be true
Love repeat the same about you
So I say thank you, I’m a lucky man
I was wrong and it took me so long for me to
Understand, understand, stand
This is love love love love precious love
Precious love and its teaching me to be a better man
Precious love no its precious love
No I cant get enough
Oh I’m down of my knees
Instead that I see it must be from heaven above
sing its love love love love love precious love
love love love love precious love

PRETTIEST FRIEND (Jason Mraz)
Comment: A dance with a close friend who is afraid to show how he really feels about you. He is afraid that his love might scare you away, so he is just waiting and waiting…

This is what I look like today
and I’m trying not to pull out my hair
I’m trying hard to grow it but I’m far too shy to show it back there
That is probably why I like wearing hats
There’s no denying I’m deferring the facts
Avoiding confrontation, lacks tact in a situation
Behind every line is a lesson yet to learn

But if you ask me the feeling that i’m feeling is overwhelming and oh
It goes to show, I’ve so much to know

I wrote this for my prettiest friend
But while trying not to prove that I care
Trying not to make all my moves in one motion and scare her away
She can’t see she’s making me crazy now
I don’t believe she knows she’s amazing how
She has me holding my breathe
So i’d never guess that I’m a none such unsuitable, suitor for her

But if you ask me
The feeling that i’m feeling is complementary
and oh it goes to show
The moral of the story is boy loves girl
And so on the way that it unfolds is yet to be told

I know that I should be brave
Even pretty can be seen by the blind
I know that I cannot wait
Until the day we finally learn how to find each other
Redefining open minds

And if you ask me
The feeling that I’m feeling is overjoyed
And it’s golden, it goes to show then
The ending of this song should be left alone
And so on cause the way it unfolds is yet to be told

PUT YOUR RECORDS ON (Corinne Bailey Rae)
Comment:

Three little birds, sat on my window.
And they told me I don’t need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon
So sweet,
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.

Maybe sometimes, we’ve got it wrong, but it’s alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don’t you hesitate.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside,
(just relax, just relax)
Don’t you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair do.

Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it’s alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don’t you think it’s strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

‘Twas more than I could take, pity for pity’s sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realise, that you don’t even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Oh, you’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

RAINBOW (South Border)
Comment: Dance with a classmate, friend or a close friend.

Fallin’ out, fallin’ in
Nothing’s sure in this world no, no
Breakin’ out, breakin’ in
Never knowin’ what lies ahead
We can really never tell it all no, no, no
Say goodbye, say hello
To a lover or friend
Sometimes we never could understand
Why some things begin then just end
We can really never tell it all no, no, no

But oh, can’t you see
That no matter what happens
Life goes on and on
So baby, just/please smile
Coz I’m always around you
And ill make you see how beautiful
Life is for you and me

Take a little time baby
See the butterflies’ colors
Listen to the birds that were sent
To sing for me and you
Can you feel me
This is such a wonderful place to be
Even if there is pain now
Everything would be all right
For as long as the world still turns
There will be night and day
Can you hear me
There’s a rainbow always after the rain

Ohh, whoa

Hittin’ high, hittin’ low
Win or lose you should go, yeah yeah
Getting warm, getting cold
Weather could be so good or bad
But baby this is life now don’t get mad no, no, no

Coz oh, can’t you see
That no matter what happens
Life goes on and on
So baby, please smile
Coz im always around you
And ill make you see how beautiful
Life is for you and me

Take a little time baby
See the butterflies’ colors
Listen to the birds that were sent
To sing for me and you
Can you feel me
This is such a wonderful place to be
Even if there is pain now
Everything would be all right
For as long as the world still turns
There will be night and day
Can you hear me
There’s a rainbow always after the rain

Life’s full of challenges
Not all the time we get what we want
But don’t despair my dear coz I know now
You’ll take each trial and you’ll make it through the storm
Coz you’re strong my faith in you is clear
So ill say once again this world’s wonderful and
Let us celebrate life that’s so beautiful, so beautiful
Ohhhh

Take a little time baby
See the butterflies’ colors
Listen to the birds that were sent
To sing for me and you
Can you feel me
This is such a wonderful place to be
Even if there is pain now
Everything would be all right
For as long as the world still turns
There will be night and day
Can you hear me
There’s a rainbow always after the rain

RAINBOW CONNECTION (Jason Mraz)
Comment: Sort of an inspirational song but can also be used as a song for the 18 roses for a dance with anyone. Can be used for your AVP

Why are there so many
Songs about Rainbows
And whats on the other side
Rainbows are visions
but only Illusions
Rainbows have nothing to hide

Whats so amazing
That it keeps us star gazing
And what do they think we might see
Oh, someday we’ll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard the voices
Well, I’ve heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound
That calls the young sailors
The voice might be one and the same

I’ve heard it too many, many,
many times to ignore it
Oh, I think it could be
Oh, someday we’ll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

RAINDROPS (Regina Spektor)
Comment: Cute rhythm for a dance.

You don’t know but that’s okay
You might find me anyway
Don’t you know that I
Belong arm in arm with you, baby
In a town that’s cold and gray
We will have a sunny day
Don’t you know that I
Belong arm in arm with you, baby…

I do not know
Where does it go
When it goes
Suddenly though
Everything’s slow
And I miss you so

Round each corner there’s a chance
People searching glance to glance
Moving bout real fast
Like insects and fish when they’re scared
And they sing the same old song
Though it’s been so very long
They sing, raindrops falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean that I am dead

And I do not know
Where does it go
When it goes
Suddenly though
Everything’s slow
And I miss you so

You don’t know but that’s okay
You might find me anyway
Don’t you know that I
Belong arm in arm with you, baby
In a town that’s cold and gray
We will have a sunny day
Don’t you know that I
Belong arm in arm with you, baby…

REFLECTION (Christina Aguilera)
Comment:

Look at me,
You may think you see
Who I really am,
But you’ll never know me.

Everyday,
it’s as if I play
A part.

Now I see,
If I wear a mask,
I can fool the world,
but I cannot fool my heart.

Chorus:

Who is that girl I see?
Staring straight,
Back at me.
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

I am now,
In a world
Where I have to hide in my heart,
and what I believe in.

But somehow,
I will show the world what’s inside my heart,
And be loved for who I am.

Who is that girl I see,
staring straight
back at me?
Why is my reflection someone I don’t know?

Must I pretend that I’m
someone else
for all time.
When will my reflection show,
who I am inside?

There’s a heart that must be free
to fly
That burns with a need to know
the reason why

Why must we all conceal
What we think
How we feel?

Must there be
a secret me
I’m forced to hide
I won’t pretend that I’m
someone else
for all time.

When will my reflection show
who I am inside?

When will my reflection show
who I am inside?

SERENDIPITY (John Mayer)
Comment: This song has a nice danceable rhythm.

I have these dreams I’m walking home
home where it used to be
everything is as it was
frozen in front of me

here I stand six feet small
romanticizing years ago
well it’s a bittersweet feeling
hearing “Wrapped Around Your Finger” on the radio

and these days
I wish I was six again
oh make me a red cape
I wanna be Superman
oh if only my life was more like 1983
all these things would be more like they were at the start of me
I had it made in 83

thinking about my brother Ben
I miss him everyday
he looks just like his brother John
but on an eighteen month delay

here I stand six feet small
and smiling cause I’m scared as hell
kinda like your life is like a sequel to a movie
where the actors’ names have changed

well these days
I wish I was six again
oh make me a red cape
I wanna be Superman
oh if only my life was more like 1983
all these things would be more like they were at the start of me
if my life was more like 1983
plot a course to the source of the purest little part of me

and most my memories have escaped me
or confused themselves with dreams
if heaven’s all they want it to be
send your prayers to me care of 1983

you can paint that house a rainbow of colors
rip out the floorboards
and replace the the shutters
but that’s my plastic in the dirt

whatever happened to my
whatever happened to my
whatever happened to my
whatever happened to my lunchbox
when came the day when it got
thrown away
don’t you think I should have had some say in that decision

more like
more like
more like 1983

SHAPE OF MY HEART (Sting)
Comment: I love the message of this song, the amazing voice of sting and it also has a very nice rhythm. Can be a slow dance with anyone or it can also be played during dinner.

He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn’t play for the money he wins
He doesn’t play for the respect
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that’s not the shape of my heart

He may play the jack of diamonds
He may lay the queen of spades
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that’s not the shape of my heart
That’s not the shape, the shape of my heart

And if I told you that I loved you
You’d maybe think there’s something wrong
I’m not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one
Those who speak know nothing
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who fear are lost

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that’s not the shape of my heart
That’s not the shape of my heart

SHE’S ALWAYS A WOMAN (Billy Joel)
Comment:

She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child,
But she’s always a woman to me

She can lead you to love
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she’ll never believe you
And she’ll take what you give her, as long as it’s free
Yeah, she steals like a thief
But she’s always a woman to me

(Chorus)
Oh–she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh–and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

And she’ll promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you’re bleedin’
But she’ll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she’s always a woman to me
Hmm..

Bridge

(Chorus)
Oh–she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh–and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She is frequently kind
And she’s suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She’s nobody’s fool
And she can’t be convicted
She’s earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she’s always a woman to me
Hmmm…

SHE’S THE ONE (Robbie Williams)
comment: For 18 roses dance with perhaps a close friend.

I was her she was me
We were one we were free
And if there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

We were young we were wrong
We were fine all along
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You’re smiling
When you said what you wanna say
And you know the way you wanna play
You’ll be so high you’ll be flying

Though the sea will be strong I know we’ll carry on
´Cause if there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You’re smiling
When you said what you wanna say
And you know the way you wanna say it
You’ll be so high you’ll be flying

I was her she was me
We were one we were free
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
Yeah she’s the one

If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
She’s the one

SMILE (Hil St. Soul)
Comment:

Let us stop and think a while,
Let us walk instead of running a mile,
Coz things are moving way too fast,
Like life ain’t going to last
Let us learn from nature
The seeds of life originator
The birds the bees and the trees
The streams of life, our dreams

Chorus
Coz that’s the way I do things yea
Don’t waste time with sad things
Ain’t down with expectations, no deal,
Coz I know what’s real,
(I’m smiling) That’s just all I have to do
(I’m smiling) Yeah and I seem to get through to you,
(I’m smiling) Got all the answers I need,
No Talking just being me.

People say its all insanity,
While they themselves are sane,
But if insanity, is what feels good to me,
I’m happy and there’s no blame
People say I’m always singing,
But I smile at them, coz it’s joy it’s bringing
Coz contemplation is the key,
That helps me see, (What others don’t see)

Chorus

SMILE IN YOUR HEART (Ariel Rivera)
Comment:

I had a feeling
That your holding my heart
And i know that it is true
You wouldn’t let it be broken apart
‘coz it’s much to dear to you
Forever we’ll be together
No one can break us apart
For our love will truly be
A wonderful smile in your heart

When the night comes
And i’m keeping your heart
How i feel so much more secure
You wouldn’t let me close my eyes
So i can see you through and through

You’re a sweet tender lover
We are so much in love
I’m not afraid when you’re far away
Just give me a smile in your heart…

You brighten my day
Showin’ me my direction
You’re comin’ to me
And givin’ me inspiration
How can i ask for more
From you my dear
Maybe just a smile in your heart

I’m always dreamin’
Of being in love
But now i know that this is true
Since you came into my life
It’s true love that i had found

I pray that you wouldn’t leave me
Whatever may come along
But if you do i won’t feel so bad
Just give me a smile in your heart…

You brighten my day
Showin’ me my direction
You’re comin’ to me
And givin’ me inspiration
How can i ask for more
From you my dear
Maybe just a smile in your
(maybe just a smile in your heart)

You brighten my day
Showin’ me my direction
You’re comin’ to me
And givin’ me inspiration
How can i ask for more
From you my dear
Maybe just a smile in your heart

Give me a smile in your heart.

SO BEAUTIFUL (Darren Hayes)

Whether I’m right or wrong
There’s no phrase that hits
Like an ocean needs the sand
Or a dirty old shoe that fits
And if all the world was perfect
I would only ever want to see your scars
You know they can have their universe
We’ll be in the dirt designing stars

And darlin’ you know
You make me feel so beautiful
Nowhere else in the world I wanna be
You make me feel so beautiful

Whether I’m up or down
There’s no crowd to please
I’m like a faith without a clause
to believe in it
And if all the world was smiling
I would only ever want to see your frown
You know they can sail away in sunsets
We’ll be right here stranded on the ground
Just happy to be found

You make me feel so beautiful
Nowhere else in the world I wanna be
You make me feel so beautiful

I have lost my illusions
I have drowned in your words
I have left my confusion to a cynical world
I am throwing myself at things I don’t understand
Discover enlightenment holding your hand

You are…
So beautiful

Yeah darlin’ you know
That you make me feel so beautiful!
Nowhere else in the world I wanna be
Yeah you make me feel so beautiful!

Yeah darlin’ you know
That you make me feel so beautiful
Yeah darlin’ you know
That you make me feel so beautiful.

SO CLOSE (Jon McLaughlin)
Comment: For 18 roses with a guy whom you have a mutual understanding with. You don’t know where the relationship is going but you just enjoy each other’s company. There may be obstacles along the way that hinders you to actually committing to each other, but you’re getting there.

You’re in my arms
And all the world is calm
The music playing on for only two
So close together
And when I’m with you
So close to feeling alive

A life goes by
Romantic dreams must die
So I bid mine goodbye and never knew
So close was waiting, waiting here with you
And now forever I know
All that I want is to hold you
So close

So close to reaching that famous happy ending
Almost believing this one’s not pretend
Now you’re beside me and look how far we’ve come
So far, we are, so close

How could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?

We’re so close to reaching that famous happy ending
Almost believing this one’s not pretend
Let’s go on dreaming for we know we are
So close (2x) and still so far

SOMEONE (El Debarge)
comment:

Someone just like me
Runnin’ into someone just like you
An accidental touch
Turned into a gentle kiss or two
Love has finally come
Somehow found my someone

Close to you, that’s how I feel
When the world’s asleep and we’re sharin’ sweet
Solitude, almost gave up
Trying to find someone else in love
Long walk, soft talk
Still can’t believe it, what were the odds of

Someone just like me
Runnin’ into someone just like you
An accidental touch
Turned into a gentle kiss or two
Love has finally come
Somehow found my someone

Was that me? Not long ago
No one here to care
No one’s dreams to share
You agree, nights can be rough
When you can’t find someone else in love
Long walk, soft talk
Hard to believe it, what were the odds of

Someone just like me
Runnin’ into someone just like you
An accidental touch
Turned into a gentle kiss or two
Love has finally come
Somehow found my someone

You and me, all alone
That’s my favorite time of night
Nothing for us to do
But finding ways to hold each other tight

Someone just like me
Runnin’ into someone just like you
An accidental touch
Turned into a gentle kiss or two
Love has finally come
Somehow found my someone

SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME (Jean Louisa Kelly-Sountrack from Mr. Holland’s Opus)
Comment: With this song, it’s like you are telling this song to someone so this can be a good slow dance with a cousin, uncle, godfather or grandfather.

There’s a saying old says that love is blind
Still we’re often told seek and ye shall find
So I’m going to seek a certain lad I’ve had in mind

Looking everywhere haven’t found him yet
He’s the big affair I cannot forget
Only man I ever think of with regret

I’d like to add his initial to my monogram
Tell me where is the shepperd for this lost lamb?

There’s a somebody I’m longing to see
I hope that he turns out to be
someone who’ll watch over me

I’m a little lamb who’s lost in the wood
I know I could always be good
To someone who’ll watch over me

Although he may not be the man some girls think of as handsome to my heart he carries the key

Won’t you tell him please to put on some speed, follow my lead
Oh how I need
Someone to watch over me.

*****

SOMETHING STUPID (Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman)
Comment: For 18 roses dance with a guy who probably loves you but you don’t know how you feel about him so when he confesses his love, you shy away.

I know I stand in line
Until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance
I know that there’s a chance
You won’t be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you”

I can see it in your eyes
That you despise the same old lines
You heard the night before
And though it’s just a line to you
For me it’s true
And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever
lines to say
To make the meaning come through
But then I think I’ll wait until the evening
gets late
And I’m alone with you

The time is right
Your perfume fills my head
The stars get red
And oh the night’s so blue
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you
I love you…

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW (Israel Kamakawiwo Ole’)
Comment: For 18 roses dance. This is somewhat upbeat so this may be used when dancing with a friend, a cool uncle or a cousin.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby ii ii iii

Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh
Someday I’ll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me ee ee eeh
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops thats where you’ll find me oh

Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to, oh why, oh why can’t I? i iiii”

(You can omit this part if it is too long.)
Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
I’ll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark and I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, “How do you do?”
They’re really saying, I…I love you
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They’ll learn much more
Than we’ll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world (w)oohoorld, (w)oohoorld

Someday I’ll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top that’s where you’ll find me oh
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why, can’t I? I hiii?

SONG OF DREAMS (Becky Taylor)
Comment: A nice inspirational song for 18 roses dance and even your AVP.

If you’re felling lost in the darkness
And you don’t know what to do
Everywhere you go there is magic
Look around and let it through.
You will find your way, you will find it
Take your wings and learn to fly
Set alight to your dream
Burn it bright for your dream
And you’ll find that one day…
You can touch the sun
You can touch the sky, oh
You can touch the moon
You can touch the stars, oh
Listen to a bird in the sunshine
See a footprint in the snow
Follow it and start on your journey
And no matter where you go
You will find your way, you will find it
Take your wings and start to fly
Hold on tight to your dream
Don’t lose sight of your dream
And you’ll know that someday
You can touch the sun
You can touch the sky, oh
You can touch the moon
You can touch the stars, oh
Once you’re on a path never leave it
Even if you fell unsure
Close your eyes, be brave and believe it,
Let your spirit start to soar.
I can touch the moon, I can touch the stars, oh
You will find your way, you will find it
Take your wings now you can fly
And your dream will never die.

SPOTLIGHT (Jennifer Hudson)
Comment: A nice danceable upbeat rhythm for 18 roses dance especially the chorus part.

Are you a man who loves and cherishes and cares for me?
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
Are you a guard in a prison, maximum security?
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
Do we stay home all the time ’cause you want me to yourself?
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
Or am I locked away, out of fear that I’d find someone else
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?

(Chorus)
Well, I don’t like living under your spotlight
Just because you think I might find somebody worthy
Well, I don’t like living under your spotlight
Maybe if you treat me right, you won’t have to worry

Is this a relationship, fulfilling your needs as well as mine
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
Or is it just my sentence, am I doing time?
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
If this is love, real, real love, then I’m staying no doubt
But if I’m just love’s prisoner, then I’m busting out
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?

(Chorus)

Oh, you oughta be ashamed of yourself
What the hell do you think you’re doing?
Loving me, loving me, so wrong
Baby, all I do is try
To show you that you’re my one and only guy
No matter who may come along
Open your eyes cuz baby I don’t like

SUDDENLY (Olivia Newton John and John and Cliff Richard)
Comment: A song about taking chances in love. A great song for 18 roses dance.

She walks in I’m suddenly a hero
I’m taken in my hopes begin to rise
Look at me can’t you tell I’d be so
Thrilled to see the message in your eyes
You make it seem I’m so close to my dream
And then suddenly it’s all there

Suddenly the wheels are in motion
And I I’m ready to sail any ocean
Suddenly I don’t need the answers
Cos I I’m ready to take all my chances with you

How can I feel you’re all that matters
I’d rely on anything you say
I’ll take care that no illusions shatter
If you dare to say what you should say
You make it seem I’m so close to my dream
And then suddenly it’s all there

Suddenly the wheels are in motion
And I I’m ready to sail any ocean
Suddenly I don’t need the answers
Cos I I’m ready to take all my chances with you

Why do I feel so alive when you’re near
There’s no way any hurt can get thru’
Longing to spend every moment of the day with you

Suddenly the wheels are in motion
And I I’m ready to sail any ocean
Suddenly I don’t need the answers
Cos I I’m ready to take all my chances with you

SWEET DARLIN’ (She and Him)
Comment: A cool 18 roses dance for anybody. You can also use it for your AVP.

When I was a little bit younger
The strain i was under could make me cry

Now I’m a little but older, a little bit bolder
But never so shy

Sweet darlin’, come hold me
Just a little bit longer now

Sweet darlin’, come hold me
Just a little bit longer now

When things were a little bit clearer, when we got nearer I shrugged from your touch
Now that I know what I want, see
I think that it haunts me, I want you too much

Sweet darlin’, come hold me
Just a little bit longer now

Sweet darlin’, come hold me
Just a little bit longer now

TATTOED ON MY MIND (D’ sound)
Comment: A dance with a special someone.

Maybe you’ll soon forget about all
Or maybe you’ll miss it like I do
One thing’s for sure, I’m all knocked out
I spend too much time thinking of you

And I can’t get you out of my dreams
Now I know that you’re the dangerous kind
And your face is tattooed on my mind
Coz I can’t get you out of my dreams

I don’t wanna write
I don’t wanna call
I would not know what to say
It should be you
That’s how I want it to be
Tel me you feel the same way

And I can’t get you out of my dreams
Now I know that you’re the dangerous kind
And your face is tattooed on my mind
Coz I can’t get you out of my dreams

Oh yesterday I was feeling safe
All I do today is try to be brave
And no melody can seem to soothe my mind
Now I curse you for being so sweet and so kind

And I can’t get you out of my dreams
Now I know that you’re the dangerous kind
And your face is tattooed on my mind
Coz I can’t get you out of my dreams

Yes I know you’re tattooed
On my mind you’re tattooed

THE LITTLE THINGS (Colbie Caillat)

The little things, you do to me are
taking me over, i wanna show ya
everything inside of me
like a nervous heart that, is crazy beating
my feet are stuck here, against the pavement
i wanna break free, i wanna make it
closer to your eyes, get your attention
before you pass me by

So back up back up take another chance
Don’t you mess up mess up I don’t wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this aint just a thing that you
Give up give up don’t you say that I’d be
Better off better off, sleepin by myself and wonderin
If im better off better off, with out you boy

So don’t just leave me hanging on

And every time, you notice me by
holdin me closely, and sayin sweet things
i don’t believe, that it could be
you speekin your mind and, sayin the real thing
my feet have broke free, and i am leavin
i’m not gonna stand here, feelin lonely but
i wont forget you, and i won’t think this
was just a waste of time

So back up back up take another chance
Don’t you mess up mess up I don’t wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this aint just a thing that you
Give up give up don’t you say that I’d be
Better off better off, sleepin by myself and wonderin
If im better off better off, with out you boy

But don’t just leave me hangin on…………

THE VOICE WITHIN (Christina Aguilera)
Comment:

Young girl don’t cry
I’ll be right here when your world starts to fall
Young girl it’s alright
Your tears will dry, you’ll soon be free to fly

When you’re safe inside your room you tend to dream
Of a place where nothing’s harder than it seems
No one ever wants or bothers to explain
Of the heartache life can bring and what it means

Chorus:
When there’s no one else, look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend just trust the voice within
Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
You’ll learn to begin to trust the voice within

Young girl don’t hide
You’ll never change if you just run away
Young girl just hold tight
Soon you’re gonna see your brighter day

Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed
It’s so hard to stand your ground when you’re so afraid
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
When you look outside look inside to your soul

Chorus

Life is a journey
It can take you anywhere you choose to go
As long as you’re learning
You’ll find all you’ll ever need to know
(be strong)
You’ll break it
(hold on)
You’ll make it
Just don’t forsake it because
No one can tell you what you can’t do
No one can stop you, you know that I’m talking to you

Chorus

Young girl don’t cry I’ll be right here when your world starts to fall

THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT (Michael Buble)
Comment: A classic song for a dance with anybody.

Some day, when I’m awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight.

You’re lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fears apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
Touches my foolish heart.

Lovely, never, ever change
Keep that breathless charm.
Won’t you please arrange it?
‘Cause I love you just the way you look tonight.

Instrumental

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fears apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
Touches my foolish heart.

Won’t you please arrange it?
‘Cause I love you
And the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fears apart
Oh and that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
Touches my foolish heart.

lovely, never, ever change
Keep that breathless charm.
Won’t you please arrange it?
‘Cause I love you
And the way you look
Just the way you look
Just the way you look tonight.

THINK OF ME (Sountrack from the Phantom of the Opera)
Comment:

Think of me, think of me fondly
When we’ve said goodbye
Remember me every so often
Promise me you’ll try
On that day – that not so distant day
When you are far away and free
If you ever find a moment
Spare a thought for me

And though it’s clear
Though it was always clear
That this was never meant to be
If you happen to remember
Stop and think of me

Think of august when the trees were green
Don’t think about the way things might have been

Think of me, think of me waking
Silent and resigned
Imagine me trying too hard
To put you from my mind
Think of me please say you’ll think of me
Whatever else you choose to do
There will never be a day when
I won’t think of you

(Raoul)
Can it be, can it be christine?
brava, brava…

Long ago, it seems so long ago,
How young and innocent we were
She may not remember me
But i remember her

(Christine)
Flowers fade
The fruits of summer fade
They have their season so do we
But please promise me
That sometimes you will think of me

THIS TIME (John Legend)
Comment:

Ran into you yesterday
Memories rushed through my brain
It’s starting to hit me
Now you’re not with me
I realized I made a mistake
I thought that I needed some space
But I just let love go to waste
It’s so crystal clear now
That I need you here now
I gotta get you back today

[Chorus]
This time I want it all
This time I want it all
Showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time I’ll take the chance
This time I’ll be a man
I can be all you need
This time it’s all of me

I hit the bar every night
Looking to score a good time
It’s not like I planed it
i’m left empty handed
I’m still alone in my mind
Now what will it take to feel right
Can I come see you tonight?
Is there someone new now?
What can I do now?
Cuz I need you back by my side

[Chorus]
This time I want it all
This time I want it all
Showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time I’ll take the chance
This time I’ll be a man
I can be all you need
This time is all of me

Last time I wasn’t sure
This time I will give you more
I’m more mature
I’ll show you
Last time I didn’t know
I messed up when i let you go
I need you, don’t say no
Lying alone in this room
All that is missing is you
Pick up the phone
Won’t you come home?

[Chorus]
This time I want it all
This time I want it all
Showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time I’ll take the chance
This time I’ll be a man
I can be all you need
This time is all of me

THOUGHT I SAW YOUR FACE TODAY (She and Him)
Comment: This is a really nice song for 18 roses dance.

I thought I saw your face today
But I just turned my head away
Your face against the trees
But I just see the memories
As they come
As they come
And I couldn’t help but fall in love again
No, I couldn’t help but fall in love again

I saw it glitter as I grew
And loved a boy I never knew
I thought this place was heaven-sent
But now it’s just a monument
In my mind
In my mind
And I couldn’t help but fall in love again
No, I couldn’t help but fall in love again

The cars and freeways implore me to stay way out of this place
My mother said, ‘just keep your head and play as it lays’

The cars and freeways implore me to stay way out of this place
My mother said, ‘just keep your head and play as it lays’

I somehow see what’s beautiful
In things that are ephemeral
I’m my only friend of mine
and love is just a piece of time
In the world
In the world
And I couldn’t help but fall in love again
No, I couldn’t help but fall in love again
No, I couldn’t help but fall in love again
No, I couldn’t help but fall in love again

TIME OF MY LIFE (David Cook)
Comment: A dance with a classmate or a friend. Can also be used for AVP.

I’ve been waiting for my dreams
To turn into something
I could believe in
And looking for that
Magic rainbow
On the horizon
I couldn’t see it
Until I let go
Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn
Now I’m coming alive
Body and soul
And feelin’ my world start to turn

And I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time
To be more than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

(You can omit the rest if it is too long.)
Holding onto things that vanished
Into the air
Left me in pieces
But now I’m rising from the ashes
Finding my wings
And all that I needed
Was there all along
Within my reach
As close as the beat of my heart

and I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

And I’m out on the edge of forever
Ready to run
I’m keeping my feet on the ground
Arms open wide
Face to the sun

(or you could use just this phrase up until the end)
I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
This is the time
This is the time of my life.
This is the time of my life.

TIME WILL REVEAL (El Debarge)
Comment: A nice slow dance song with a classmate or a friend.

Time Will Reveal
What can I do to make you feel secure?
Remove all your doubts
so that you’ll know for sure that you’re
the apple of my eye girl fulfillment of my dream
time…..

Will show the value of just what you mean to me
More precious than silver
More precious than diamond rings
or anything that I can give you
It wouldn’t mean a thing
If you don’t have my love beside you there to guide you through
so aint it good to know you do…

Chorus:
I know how just you feel
but this time loves for real
In time it will reveal this special love that’s deep inside of us
will all reveal in time….

I’ll tell you I love you
But you won’t believe its true
More precious than silver
More precious than diamond rings
or anything that I can give you
It wouldn’t mean a thing
If you didn’t have my love beside you there to guide you through
but aint it good to know you do….

UNBELIEVABLE (Craig David)
Comment: A slow dance with a close friend or a boyfriend.

Always said I would know where to find love,
Always thought I’d be ready and strong enough,
But some times I just felt I could give up.
But you came and you changed my whole world now,
I’m somewhere I’ve never been before.
Now I see, what love means.

[Chorus]
It’s so unbelievable,
And I don’t want to let it go,
Something so beautiful,
Flowing down like a waterfall.
I feel like you’ve always been,
Forever a part of me.
And it’s so unbelievable to finally be in love,
Somewhere I’d never thought I’d be.

In my heart, in my head, it’s so clear now,
Hold my hand you’ve got nothing to fear now,
I was lost and you’ve rescued me some how-.
I’m alive, I’m in love you complete me,
And I’ve never been here before.
Now I see, what love means.

[Chorus]

When I think of what I have, and this chance I nearly lost,
I cant help but break down, and cry.
Oh yeah, break down and cry.

[Chorus]

Now I see, what love means

UNFORGETTABLE (Nat King Cole)
Comment: Nice for 18s with a much older person like an uncle, grandfather, teacher. It is also great song for a father and daughter dance.

Unforgettable, that’s what you are
Unforgettable, though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay
That’s why darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Unforgettable, in every way
And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay
That’s why darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

UNTIL (Sting)
Comment: This is a nice modern waltz song for cotillion or a one-song 18 roses dance. I can just picture the debutante’s gown swaying gracefully as she changes partner.

If I caught the world in a bottle
And everything was still beneath the moon
Without your love would it shine for me?
If I was smart as Aristotle
And understood the rings around the moon
What would it all matter if you loved me?

Here in your arms where the world is impossibly still
With a million dreams to fulfill
And a matter of moments until the dancing ends
Here in your arms when everything seems to be clear
Not a solitary thing would I fear
Except when this moment comes near the dancings end

If I caught the world in an hourglass
Saddled up the moon so we could ride
Until the stars grew dim, Until…

One day you’ll meet a stranger
And all the noise is silenced in the room
You’ll feel that you’re close to some mystery
In the moonlight and everything shatters
You feel as if you’ve known her all your life
The world’s oldest lesson in history

Here in your arms where the world is impossibly still
With a million dreams to fulfill
And a matter of moments until the dancing ends
Here in your arms when everything seems to be clear
Not a solitary thing do I fear
Except when this moment comes near the dancings end

Oh, if I caught the world in an hourglass
Saddled up the moon and we would ride
Until the stars grew dim
Until the time that time stands still, Until…

UNWRITTEN (Natasha Bedingfield)
Comment: This song is inspirational. You can use it on your AVP.

I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined
I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Oh, oh, oh

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We’ve been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can’t live that way

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten

Oh, yeah, yeahdo.

UPSIDE DOWN (Jack Johnson)
Comment: A fast song. Can be used for AVP.

Who’s to say
What’s impossible
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread its wings
There’s no stopping curiosity

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to Mother Nature’s songs
I don’t want this feeling to go away

Who’s to say
I can’t do everything
Well I can try
And as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren’t always just what they seem

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to Mother Nature’s songs
This world keeps spinning and there’s no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning round and round and

Upside down
Who’s to say what’s impossible and can’t be found
I don’t want this feeling to go away

Please don’t go away
Please don’t go away
Please don’t go away
Is this how it’s supposed to be
Is this how it’s supposed to be

VIVA LA VIDA (Coldplay)
Comment: This song is very upbeat and nice for your grand entrance.

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sweep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
“Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!”

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world
(Ohhh)
It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in.
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn’t believe what I’d become

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

WAITING ON THE WORLD TO CHANGE (John Mayer)
Comment: A nice inspirational song. Can be nice to use for your AVP.

Me and all my friends
We’re all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There’s no way we ever could

Now we see everything that’s going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don’t have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It’s hard to beat the system
When we’re standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That’s why we’re waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It’s not that we don’t care,
We just know that the fight ain’t fair
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

And we’re still waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

WATCH OVER ME (Bernard Fanning)
Comment:

When trouble fills my world
You bring me peace
You calm me down
You’re my relief
When walls come crashing down around my feet
You light my way
You’re my release

So say you’ll watch over me
When i’m in too deep
Tell me you’ll always be
There to pull me free

When the sun is beating down upon my brow
You are my shade
You cool me down
Every time I tried to turn away
You brought me ’round
Your humble way

So say you’ll watch over me
When I’m in too deep
Tell me you’ll always be
There to pull me free
There to rescue me

For every time you sheltered me from harm
You showed me truth
Kept me warm
Every time you left me on the street
I found my way
I found my feet

So say you’ll watch over me
When I’m in too deep
Tell me you’ll always be
There to pull me free
There to rescue me
There to pull me free
There to rescue me

WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES (Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins)
Comment: A cute upbeat old song.

He came from somewhere back in her long ago
The sentimental fool dont see
Tryin hard to recreate
What had yet to be created once in her life

She musters a smile
For his nostalgic tale
Never coming near what he wanted to say
Only to realize
It never really was

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
Hes watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
And nothing at all keeps sending him…

Somewhere back in her long ago
Where he can still believe theres a place in her life
Someday, somewhere, she will return

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
Hes watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
Theres nothing at all
But what a fool believes he sees..

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD (Louis Armstrong)

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
for me and you
and I think to myself
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue
And Clouds of white
The bright blessed day
And the dark sacred night
And i think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
of the people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, How do you do?
They’re really saying
I love you

I hear babies crying
I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more
Then I’ll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wondeful World

Yes, I think to myself
What a wondeful World

WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN (Lou Pardini)
Comment:

Somewhere, lost in the wind
I’m watching you
Sunlight touching your hair
And I remember
Somehow, we said that we would never stray
But somehow we lost our way
Promises too often spoken
Are easily broken apart

I’m ready this time
I know that I’m no longer undecided
Don’t wanna be
A fool wondering what might have been

Trace of forever lingering
Drawing me closer to you
A new beginning
Now I know
There is no doubt I understand
Just how fragile love can be
I can’t forget
Your mem’ry found me
Now I know where I belong

I’m ready this time
I know that I’m no longer undecided
Don’t wanna be a fool wondering
What might have been
Through every day, into the night
With only love to guide us
I’m ready to go, coz I’ve got to know
What might have been
Let the lovin’ decide, I can’t run, I can’t hide

I want you to know
My heart will show that I’m ready this time
I know that I’m no longer undecided
Don’t wanna be, a fool wondering what might have been
I’ve searched everywhere, and nothing compares
When we’ve got love to guide us
I’m ready to go, coz I wanna know what might have been
I’m wondering what might have been
We’re gonna find what might have been
Oh I wanna know what might have been

WHEN I FALL IN LOVE (Nat King Cole)
Comment: This can be used for 18 roses dance with a guy you have a crush on that he knows but he is not that into you yet. Also nice for uncles, godfather and grandfather just because it is a classic.

When I fall in love, it will be forever
Or I’ll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it’s begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart, it will be completely
Or I’ll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

WHEREVER YOU ARE (South Border)
Comment: This is such a nice ballad. Can be used for a dance with anyone.

I love to see the ocean’s beauty
And the moon that shines above
Alone in the sand lookin at the stars
Wishing someday I would find true love

Wouldn’t be nice to see the morning
With the one you love the most
Wouldn’t be nice to say goodnight
To the one you hold so close
To your heart, to your heart…

The wind that blows the dove
Is the wind that blows my love
Hoping to find its way to you
Wherever you are

I love to sit in fields of green
Looking deeply thru the sky
Watching birds as they flap by
Hoping someday faith will bring me true love

Wouldn’t be nice to hold someone
So dear, n near your heart
Wouldn’t be nice to hear those words
I love you, from the one
That you love, that you love

The wind that blows the dove
Is the wind that blows my love
Hoping to find its way to you
Wherever you are

The wind that blows the dove
Is the wind that blows my love
Hoping to find its way to you
Wherever you are

I love to see myself one day
In the arms of someone
Who will share her life with me
Selflessly, someday you will find your way,
To me . . .

The wind that blows the dove
Is the wind that blows my love
Hoping to find its way to you
Wherever you are

The wind that blows the dove
Is the wind that blows my love
Hoping to find its way to you
Wherever you are, Wherever you are

WISHES (Emi Fujita)
Comment: This song is so cute, just like those songs coming from a koreanovela. This is perfect for 18 roses dance.

I looked in the sky
and there I saw a star
shining so bright above

I closed my eyes
and wished upon the star
that I would find true love

Someone who needed me..
Someone to share my life..
For a love that would be true I would wait forever

So… no… matter how long it may be..
I will be waiting

One star..
brighter than the others
Two Hearts..
beating for each other
I believe wishes really come true

Love at first sight
I knew it from the moment
when you said hello

I hoped you felt it too
but we were both so shy
how was I to know

when you reached for my hand
I knew you were the one
We laughed and talked for hours
like I’d known you forever

Like… a… dream or something from a book
True love has found me

One star..
brighter than the others
Two Hearts..
beating for each other
Now I see wishes really come true

You just have to dream
Nothing’s as bad as it seems to be..
believe me..

Someone’s waiting for you to try..
There in the sky..

One star..
brighter than the others
Two Hearts..
beating for each other
You will see wishes really come true

You can’t stop believing
wishes do come true
You gotta believe me (wish on a star)
wishes do come true..

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS (Beatles or Joe Cocker version)
Comment: This is a song about friendship so you can dance with a friend or a classmate on this song. You can also use this for AVP of friends wishing you well or something like that.

What would you think if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day,
(Are you sad because you’re on your own?)

No, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody
I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love.

Would you believe in a love at first sight
Yes, I’m certain that it happens all the time
What do you see when you turn out the light
I can’t tell you but I know it’s mine,

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody
I just need someone to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends

WONDERWALL (Oasis)
Comment:

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk along are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
I don’t know how

Because maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day?
But they’ll never throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you’re not to do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do
About you now

And all the roads that lead to you were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
I don’t know how

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after an
You’re my wonderwall

Said maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me

WORLD FILLED WITH LOVE (Craig David)
Comment: A good music for an upbeat dance. I especially like the lyrics of the chorus as it is very inspirational.

Saw some pictures in the paper,
of a girl I’d met the day before.
I couldn’t believe that hours later,
I had reporters knockin at my door,
But I used to dream about,
the life I’m living now and,
I didn’t think I’d miss those things from the past,
and I’m not afraid of leaving,
or letting go of what I had,
cause I realize that now there’s no turning back.

[Chorus]
Cause I’m young heart living in a world filled with love,
so when tear drops fall from me like rain from above,
I can brush my troubles away,
know that deep down inside,
I’ve got sunshine in my life.

[Verse]
I used to think I could get better,
my girlfriends always used to get me wrong.
Some distant messages, love letters,
but those kinda feelings never lasted long.
Cause now the only love I find’s within a castle made of sand,
and when the tide goes out it’s swept away.
Though I got my peace of mind,
and time is firmly on my side,
and through the bad times I can safely say…

[Chorus]
Cause I’m young heart living in a world filled with love,
so when tear drops fall from me like rain from above,
I can brush my troubles away,
know that deep down inside,
I’ve got sunshine in my life.

[Music Break]

Ah…now that love’s here to stay
I’ve found a better day to brush my troubles away

[Chorus]
Cause I mean I’m young heart living in a world filled with love,
so when tear drops fall from me like rain from above,
I can brush my troubles away,
know that deep down inside,
I’ve got sunshine in my life.
I’m young heart living in a world filled with love,
so when tear drops fall from me like rain from above,
I can brush my troubles away,
know that deep down inside,
I’ve got sunshine in my life.

YELLOW (Coldplay)
Comment: This song can be used for a dance with someone who loves you very much and would probably do anything for you.

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow.

I came along,
I wrote a song for you,
And all the things you do,
And it was called “Yellow”.

So then I took my turn,
Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all “Yellow.”
Your skin,
Oh yeah your skin and bones,
Turn into something beautiful,
You know, you know I love you so,
You know I love you so.

I swam across,
I jumped across for you,
Oh what a thing to do.
Cos you were all “Yellow”,

I drew a line,
I drew a line for you,
Oh what a thing to do,
And it was all “Yellow.”

Your skin,
Oh yeah your skin and bones,
Turn into something beautiful,
And you know,
For you I’d bleed myself dry,
For you I’d bleed myself dry.

It’s true,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine.
Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And all the things that you

YOU AND I BOTH (Jason Mraz)
Comment: An upbeat and cute song.

Was it you who spoke the words that things would happen but not to me
Oh things are gonna happen naturally
Oh taking your advice I’m looking on the bright side
And balancing the whole thing
But often times those words get tangled up in lines
And the bright lights turn to night
Until the dawn it brings
Another day to sing about the magic that was you and me

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of
Others only read of the love, the love that I love.

See I’m all about them words
Over numbers, unencumbered numbered words
Hundreds of pages, pages, pages for words
More words then I had ever heard and I feel so alive

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of
And if you could see me now,
Oh love, no
You and I, you and I
Not so little you and I anymore, mmm…
And with this silence brings a moral story
More importantly evolving is the glory of a boy

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of
And if you could see me now
Well I’m almost finally out of
I’m finally out of
Finally deedeedeedee
Well I’m almost finally, finally
Well I’m free, oh, I’m free

And it’s okay if you have to go away
Oh just remember the telephone works both ways
And if I never ever hear them ring
If nothing else I’ll think the bells inside
Have finally found you someone else and that’s okay
Cause I’ll remember everything you sang

Cause you and I both loved what you and I spoke of
and others just read of and if you could see me now
well I’m almost finally out of.
I’m finally out of, finally, deedeeededede
well I’m almost finally, finally, out of words.

YOU AND ME (Lifehouse)
Comment: A nice song for a dance with a classmate, friend or close friend.

What day is it? And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can’t keep up and I can’t back down
I’ve been losing so much time

‘Cause it’s you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it’s you and me and all other people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you

One of the things that I want to say just aren’t coming out right
I’m tripping on words
You’ve got my head spinning
I don’t know where to go from here

‘Cause it’s you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it’s you and me and all other people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you

There’s something about you now
I can’t quite figure out
Everything she does is beautiful
Everything she does is right

‘Cause it’s you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it’s you and me and all other people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you
and me and all other people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it’s you and me and all other people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you

What day is it?
And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive

YOU AND ME SONG (Wannadies)
Comment: A fast song for an unconventional 18 roses dance.

Always when we fight
I try to make you laugh
Til everything’s forgotten
I know you hate that

ba ba da da ba ba ba ba (2x)

Always when we fight
I kiss you once or twice
And everything’s forgotten
I know you hate that

I love you Sunday song
The week’s not yet begun
And everything is quiet
And it’s always…

You and me always, and forever
You and me always, and forever
ba ba ba ba da ba, it was always
You and me always..

You tell me I’m a real man
and try to look impressed
Not very convincing
But you know I love it

Now we watch TV
Til we fall asleep
Not very exciting
But it’s you and…

Me and we’ll always be together
You and me always, and forever
ba ba ba ba da ba, it was always…
You and me always, and forever
You and me always, and forever
ba ba ba ba da ba, it was always…
You and me always, and forever
You and me always, and forever
ba ba ba ba da ba ba….
ba ra ra

YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL (Joe Cocker)
Comment: Because of its classic feel, this can be a song for a dance with your uncles, godfather, grandfather.

You are so beautiful to me
You are so beautiful to me
Can’t you see
Your everything I hoped for
Your everything I need
You are so beautiful to me

Such joy and happiness you bring
Such joy and happiness you bring
Like a dream
A guiding light that shines in the night
Heavens gift to me
You are so beautiful to me

YOU BELONG TO ME (Jason Wade or Tori Amos version)
Comment:

See the pyramids around the Nile
watch the sunrise from a tropic isle
just remember darling all the while -
You belong to me

See the marketplace in old Angier
send me photographs and souvenirs
just remember when a dream appears -
You belong to me

And I’ll be so alone without you
maybe you’ll be lonesome too

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
see the jungle when it’s wet with rain
just remember till you’re home again -
You belong to me

Oh I’ll be so alone without you
maybe you’ll be lonesome too

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
see the jungle when it’s wet with rain
just remember till you’re home again -
You belong to me

YOU RAISE ME UP (Josh Groban)
Comment:

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

There is no life – no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

You raise me up… To more than I can be.

YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL (James Blunt)
Comment: For 18 roses dance with a friend who has a secret crush on you and is afraid to tell you how he feels.

My life is brilliant (2x)
My love is pure
I saw an angel
Of that I’m sure
She smiled at me on the subway
She was with another man
But I won’t lose no sleep on that
‘Cause I’ve got a plan

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful, it’s true
I saw your face in a crowded place
And I don’t know what to do
‘Cause I’ll never be with you

Yes, she caught my eye
As I walked on by
She could see from my face that I was flying high
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again
But we shared a moment that will last till the end

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful, it’s true
I saw your face in a crowded place
And I don’t know what to do
‘Cause I’ll never be with you

Da la la la (3x)

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful, it’s true
There must be an angel with a smile on her face
When she thought up that I should be with you
But it’s time to face the truth
I will never be with you.

YOU’RE THE INSPIRATION (Peter Cetera)
Comment:

You know our love was meant to be
the kind of love that lasts forever
And I want you here with me
from tonight until the end of time.
You should know, everywhere I go
Always on my mind, in my heart
in my soul..baby

CHORUS
You’re the meaning in my life
you’re the inspiration.
You bring feeling to my life
you’re the inspiration.
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin’:
No one needs you more than I need you.

And I know, yes I know that it’s plain to see
So in love when we’re together.
Now I know that I need you here with me
From tonight until the end of time.
You should know, everywhere I go
Always on my mind you’re in my heart in my soul.

CHORUS
You’re the meaning in my life
you’re the inspiration.
You bring feeling to my life
you’re the inspiration.
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin’:
No one needs you more than I need you.
BREAK

Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin’:
No one needs you more than I need you.

CHORUS (STEPPED UP)
You’re the meaning in my life
you’re the inspiration.
You bring feeling to my life
you’re the inspiration.
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin’:
No one needs you more than I need you.
When you love somebody ’til the end of time

When you love somebody, always on my mind

No one needs you more than I.

YOUR SMILING FACE (James Taylor)
Comment: A fun dance with a classmate, friend or close friend.

Whenever I see your smiling face
I have to smile myself
Because I love you (Yes, I do)
And when you give me that pretty little pout
It turns me inside out
There’s something about you, baby (I don’t know)

Isn’t it amazing a man like me
Can feel this way
Tell me how much longer
It can grow stronger every day
Oh, how much stronger

I thought I was in love
A couple of times before
With the girl next door
But that was long before I met you
Now I’m sure that I won’t forget you
And I thank my lucky stars
That you are who you are
And not just another lovely lady
Sent down to break my heart

Isn’t it amazing a man like me
Can feel this way
Tell me how much longer
It can grow stronger every day
How much longer

No one can tell me that I’m doing wrong today
Whenever I see you smile at me
No one can tell me that I’m doing wrong today
Whenever I see your smiling face my way
No one can tell me that I’m doing wrong today
No one can tell me that I’m doing wrong today

YOUR SONG (Ewan McGregor-Soundtrack of Moulin Rouge)
Comment: This is a nice slow dance with anybody. This could also be used as a song for your grand entrance or AVP.

My gift is my song
And this one’s for you
And you can tell everybody
That this is your song
It maybe quite simple
But now that it’s done
Hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you’re in the world

Sat on the roof
And I kicked off the moss
Well some of the verses well
They got me quite cross
But the sun’s been kind
While I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that
Keep it turned on

So excuse me for forgetting
But these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten
If they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is well I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

[Allesandro- opera]

And you can tell everybody
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 now you’re in the world
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you’re in the world

YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND (James Taylor)
Comment:

When you’re down and troubled
and you need a helping hand
and nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
and you know whereever I am
I’ll come running,
oh yeah baby to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
all you have to do is call
and I’ll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You’ve got a friend.

If the sky above you
should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind
should begin to blow
Keep your head together
and call my name out loud
and soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name
and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
all you got to do is call
and I’ll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, ain’t it good to know
that you’ve got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They’ll hurt you and desert you.
Well they’ll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don’t you let them.

You just call out my name
and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Oh babe, don’t you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you’ve got to do is call.
Lord, I’ll be there, yes I will.
You’ve got a friend.
You’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
You’ve got a friend.

YOU WERE MEANT FOR ME (Sting)
Comment: This is a nice song for a slow dance with anybody. This can also be used for your grand entrance.

Life was a song
You came along
I lay awake the whole night through
If I should dare
To think you care
This is what I’d say to you

You were meant for me
And I was meant for you
Nature fashioned you
And when she was done
You were all those good things
Rolled into one

You’re like a plaintive melody
That never lets me be
I’m content the angels must have sent you
And they meant you just for me

You’re like a plaintive melody
That never lets me be
I’m content the angels must have sent you
And they meant you just for me
