Track Name: Miracle
Miracle

Take a look right now
At the Miracle of Me
We’ll never know
What could have been
I’m still out there singing and dancing
Just watch me fancy-pantsin’
Take a look right now
At the Miracle of Me

Go on right ahead
You can call me one tough bird
I will admit
That I have felt burned
I’m not going down without a fight
Enjoying life is my right
Take a look right now
At the Miracle of Me

Chorus: YAY & HOORAY
I’m thankful for this life! 2 X
We don’t know how many days we’ve got
A little prayer may sweeten the pot
YAY & HOORAY
I’m thankful for this life!

Take a look right now
At the Miracle of Me
We’ll never know
What could have been
I’m still out there singing and dancing
Just watch me fancy-pantsin’
Take a look right now
At the Miracle of Me


Chorus: YAY & HOORAY
I’m thankful for this life! 2 X
We don’t know how many days we’ve got
A little prayer may sweeten the pot
YAY & HOORAY
I’m thankful for this life!

Lychee Martini

Lychee martini
Lychee martini, please
Lychee martini
I’ll have another one of these
I know what I want
I want a lychee martini

Some may call me a lady of leisure
I prefer to say I’m focused on pleasure
Sit with me a while, show me your treasure
Life is short, don’t you think?

Lychee martini
Lychee martini, please
Lychee martini
I’ll have another one of these
I know what I want
I want a lychee martini

I have a mind to follow my notions
I’m going to take a long trip to the ocean
To get away from all the commotion
Life is Grand, don’t you think?

Lychee martini
Lychee martini, please
Lychee martini
I’ll have another one of these
I know what I want
I want a lychee martini

If only for a day
Come with me and play
A wee get-a-way
Life is not what it seems
Get out of routine
Take some time to dream

What is your fantasy?
Why not make it a
Re-ality?
There is no time to lose
You just have to choose
Let go of the ruse

Lychee martini
Lychee martini, please
Lychee martini
I’ll have another one of these
I know what I want
I want a lychee martini

She knows what she wants
Lychee Martini
She knows what she wants
Lychee Martini
She knows what she wants……….

Track Name: Second Thoughts
Second Thoughts

I’m having a hard time
With what you are implying
I’m wondering what all
I have been denying

I’m having second, third, fourth thoughts
I’m having fifth, sixth, seventh thoughts
About what we oughta do
About where we’re going to

I’m talking in my sleep
I’m choking back my words
Sometimes I feel angry
Sometimes I feel just absurd

I’m having second, third, fourth thoughts
I’m having fifth, sixth, seventh thoughts
About what we oughta do
About where we’re going to

Is love enough to keep us both intact
How can we talk it out without both feeling attacked?

I’m having second, third, fourth thoughts
I’m having fifth, sixth, seventh thoughts
About what we oughta do
About where we’re going to

I try to understand
I try to let things go
I try to understand
I try to let things go
I try to work it out
In every way I know still I’m

I’m having second, third, fourth thoughts
I’m having fifth, sixth, seventh thoughts
About what we oughta do
About where we’re going to

I love you
I love you
My love,
What are we going to do?
Track Name: I Need a Vacation
I need a Vacation

Open the windows
open the doors
take me to a place
where my heart can soar
I need a vacation
from my current situation
serve me up a cocktail
of peace, grace and salvation

Pity me Pity you
Let’s have a pity party for two
We’ll have a good laugh
When we’re through
Otherwise what’s a gal
Supposed to do?

Open the closet
Open the drawers
Help me make some room
To restore my core
I need a vacation
From my current situation
Roll me a big fatty
Of hope, love and elation

Pity me Pity you
Let’s have a pity party for two
We’ll have a good laugh
When we’re through
Otherwise what’s a gal
Supposed to do?

Open the curtains
Sweep up the floors
I’m here suffocating
I want something more
I need a vacation
From my current situation

Serve me up a cocktail
of peace, grace and salvation
Roll me a big fatty
Of hope, love and elation
Let’s brew a creation
Of positive vibrations
Track Name: Love, Serve & Uplift
Love, Serve and Uplift

I know I can love
I know I can love
I know I can love
my neighbour and myself as I am
I know I can love God’s Creation - yes I can
Whether you feel joy or pain
I can love you just the same
We are here to Love, Serve & Uplift one another

I know I can serve
I know I can serve
I know I can serve
my family & my community
I know that my service
Is good for the world and me
Serving is a gift
That surely will uplift
We are here to Love, Serve & Uplift one another

I know that I-I can uplift
I know that I-I can uplift
I know I can honour & respect everyone that I meet
I know I can notice & appreciate every good deed.
And by the deed thy shall be known
We will reap what we have sown
We are here to Love, Serve & Uplift one another

And I pray that I will be true
That these 3 simple things I will do
We’re here to Love, Serve & Uplift one another
Love, Serve & Uplift one another
Track Name: Peace Be
Peace Be

Shout it to the mountain
Whisper it to the sea
Peace Be – Be
Sing it on home
Pass it on joyfully
Peace Be – Be

When I’ve got nothing left to give
& I’ve spilled every drop from my cup
When I get back to a grateful heart
My fountain fills right back up

Peace Be

Shout it to the meadow
Whisper it to the trees
Peace Be –(talkin bout) Be
Sing it out loud (sing it out loud)
Breathe it in joyfully
Peace Be – Be

Nurturing the tiny light inside
It’s my choice the fire I feed
When we all stoke a loving flame
There’s a bon fire guaranteed

Peace Be
Track Name: Viens dans mes bras
Viens dans mes bras

Viens dans mes bras
Je t'emmènerai
Loin de tes soucis
Un nouveau jour va commencer

Viens dans mes bras
Je te blotirai
Au fond de mon cœur
pour te bercer

Écoute les paroles d’un vieux sage
Tu es capable de tourner la page
J’aimerais que tu puisses voir en toi
Ce que moi j’y vois

Assis-toi, je te prête mon oreille
Demain matin je sais qu’à ton réveille
Tu pourras de nouveau, trouver en toi
Le grand, le fort

Viens dans mes bras
Je t'emmènerai
Loin de tes soucis
Un nouveau jour va commencer
Viens dans mes bras
Je te blotirai
Au fond de mon cœur
pour te bercer

C’est bien vrai que la vie n’est pas facile
Mais nous sommes une forêt, pas une ile
L’univers est rempli de gens comme toi
Qui se sentent seuls

Pour eux et pour toi, fais-moi un cadeau
Partages tes expériences et tes mots
Le monde pourra alors voir en toi
Ce que moi j’y vois

Viens dans mes bras
Je t'emmènerai
Loin de tes soucis
Un nouveau jour va commencer
Viens dans mes bras
Je te blotirai
Au fond de mon cœur
pour te bercer

Au fond de mon cœur
Au tres fond de mon coeur
Au fond de mon cœur
pour te bercer
Track Name: Widow's Waltz
Widow’s Waltz

He’d seen her around town. She used to smile at him
At the Orange Hall he asked her to dance
Her steps matched his time. Across the dance floor they traveled
They began the Lover’s Waltz

He used to say: “I never thought love could happen to me”
He used to say: “You are so beautiful.
My love, let’s go out dancing.
We’ll waltz our worries away.”

They danced in a spring meadow
They danced on the back porch
They danced through joy and sorrow
Now she dances the Widow’s Waltz

There were times when she’d pretend he’s out working
There were nights when sleep would not come at all
Other times she’d cuddle with their daughter
teaching her the Widow’s Waltz

They danced in a spring meadow
They danced on the back porch
They danced through joy and sorrow
Dancing the Widow’s Waltz

The town was shaken to the core
For he never left the factory floor
How could she know when he walked out the door
That she would never see him anymore

There are many other widows in her town
like Mrs. Merle Ralston and Mrs. Frank Brown
They have their luncheons, they quilt and go traveling
dancing the Widow’s Waltz

They dance at their children’s weddings,
square dances, line dances at the Legion Hall
They dance through joy and sorrow
Dancing the Widow’s Waltz
Dancing the Widow’s Waltz
Track Name: Diamonds and Pearls
Diamonds & Pearls (Low Hanging Fruit)

The low hanging fruit
Of a wise, wise woman
Feel the fullness of the moon
Riding the tide, opening wide, she found her stride
Leading with love gracefully
Contributing so gratefully
Sharing so graciously…Diamonds & Pearls

The low hanging fruit
Of a wise, wise woman
Sweetened by the earth & the sun
Perfectly ripe, no prototype, just how I like
Living life with vibrancy
Giving her love wholeheartedly
Receiving so abundantly… Diamonds & Pearls

Sister you help me navigate troubled waters
Through all the storms, that life unfurls
Listening, reflecting on today and all that we were
And knowing Sister, we’re becoming Diamonds and Pearls
Diamonds & Pearls

The low hanging fruit
Of a wise, wise woman
Her roots reach down deep
She set her course, she is a force with no remorse
Facing life courageously
Embracing love authentically
Believing so audaciously in…..Diamonds & Pearls

We’re becoming Diamonds and Pearls
Diamonds & Pearls
Track Name: La foule - Que nadie sepa mi sufrir
La foule .....popularized by Edith Piaf

Je revois la ville en fête et en délire
Suffoquant sous le soleil et sous la joie
Et j'entends dans la musique les cris, les rires
Qui éclatent et rebondissent autour de moi
Et perdue parmi ces gens qui me bousculent
Étourdie, désemparée, je reste là
Quand soudain, je me retourne, il se recule,
Et la foule vient me jeter entre ses bras...

Emportés par la foule qui nous traîne
Nous entraîne
Écrasés l'un contre l'autre
Nous ne formons qu'un seul corps
Et le flot sans effort
Nous pousse, enchaînés l'un et l'autre
Et nous laisse tous deux
Épanouis, enivrés et heureux.

Que nadie sepa mi sufrir

Entraînés par la foule qui s'élance
Et qui danse
Une folle farandole
Nos deux mains restent soudées
Et parfois soulevés
Nos deux corps enlacés s'envolent
Et retombent tous deux
Épanouis, enivrés et heureux...

No te asombres si te digo lo que fuiste
un ingrato con mi pobre corazón
por que el fuego de tus lindos ojos negros
alumbraron el camino de otro amor

y pensar que te adoraba tiernamente
que a tu lado como nunca me senti
y por esas cosas raras de la vida
sin el beso de tu boca yo me vi 



Amor de mis amores, amor mio que me hisiste
que no puedo conformarme sin poderte contemplar
ya que pagaste mal mi cariño tan sincero
lo que conseguiras que no te nombre nunca mas

Amor de mis amores si dejaste de quererme
no hay cuidado que la gente de eso no se enterara
que gano con decir que un hombre cambio mi suerte
se burlaran de mi que nadie sepa mi sufrir 



Track Name: Chocolate & a Bubble Bath
Chocolate & a Bubble Bath

You’re like chocolate & a bubble bath
Allow me to indulge myself
I’ll put aside my many tasks
And escape for a moment with you

I’m getting older
I’m getting more playful too
I am much wiser
You know it’s true

I like to live the simple life
Simple is high quality
& I am more discerning
with my company

You’re like chocolate & a bubble bath
Allow me to indulge myself
I’ll put aside my many tasks
And escape for a moment with you

You’re getting older
You’re getting more playful too
You are much wiser
You know it’s true

So throw away all your regrets
Sit back & watch the sun set
Tender memories keep
Looking back is sweet

You’re like chocolate & a bubble bath
Allow me to indulge myself
I’ll put aside my many tasks
And escape for a moment with you

Take a break, take a break, to escape
The rat race, the big chase, in any case
I agree, you & me, can’t you see, we are free to
celebrate what is great, don’t hesitate
to refrain from the lame, the mundane
In my game you’re the flame
You’re chocolata bubble bath

You’re like chocolate & a bubble bath
Allow me to indulge myself
I’ll put aside my many tasks
And escape for a moment with you
Track Name: Mama's Gettin' into Grandpa's Ganja
Mama’s Gettin’ into Grandpa’s Ganja Nicole Edwards

Mama’s Getting’ into Grandpa’s Ganja
She’s got a smile like the wild blue yonder
When she looks back the years grow fonder
Mama’s Getting’ into Grandpa’s Ganja

She’s got a skip in her step you can hear her laughin’
Singin’ and swingin’ and toe tappin’
She didn’t know that this would happen
Mamma’s getting’ a piece of the action

Mama’s Getting’ into Grandpa’s Ganja
She’s got a smile like the wild blue yonder
When she looks back the years grow fonder
Mama’s Getting’ into Grandpa’s Ganja

He grows a little green to make her roses redder
He says a little green will make your day better
Your knees nimbler and your dreams deeper
He says a little green will make your love sweeter

Mama’s Getting’ into Grandpa’s Ganja
She’s got a smile like the wild blue yonder
When she looks back the years grow fonder
Mama’s Getting’ into Grandpa’s Ganja

Bridge: They’re having a little talk with Herb
On the back porch no cares in the world
Holding hands boy & girl……
OOoo Mama what you gettin’ into now girl

Mama’s Getting’ into Grandpa’s Ganja
She’s got a smile like the wild blue yonder
When she looks back the years grow fonder
Mama’s Getting’ into Grandpa’s Ganja
Track Name: I Still Have Something
I still have something

Let’s say you lose your hands
and you lose your knees
and you lose your face
Can you accept yourself?
Let’s say you lose your job
and you lose your art
and you lose your strength
Can you accept yourself?

We are so much more than our bodies
We are so much more than what we do
If I cannot be a productive member of society
I still have something, deep down I know I do

I’m lying in my bed
There’s nothing else to do
Just me inside my head
………
Let go of all my goals
Let go of all my plans
Let it go
and try to accept myself

We are so much more than our bodies
We are so much more than what we do
If I cannot be a productive member of society
I still have something, deep down I know I do

The only reason is:
to give and receive love
The only purpose is:
to give and receive love

We are so much more than our bodies
We are so much more than what we do
If I cannot be a productive member of society
I still have something, deep down I know I do
I still have something, deep down I know I do
Track Name: I Already Told You
I already told you

I already told you
I already told you

You’ve been acting so friendly
And I’ve been craving intimacy
But I don’t want to be a fool
And I don’t know if I can trust you

I already told you
I’m not ready to love you
I already told you
This is as far as it goes

Where were your ears the other day
When I had something important to say
I thought that I could talk to you
Now I know it went straight through cause

I already told you
I’m not ready to love you
I already told you
This is as far as it goes

What keeps you coming round my door
Am I a friend or am I just a score
Subtlety is not your forte
And I don’t want to see you today

I already told you
I’m not ready to love you
I already told you
This is as far as it goes
