Give Me Your Heart This Christmas

Give me your heart this Christmas

I want it to snow this Christmas especially if it lays
I want Santa Claus to bring my presents on a sleigh
I want Christmas lights to shine brighter that before
But there’s one thing you know I want now and evermore

[Chorus]

Give me your heart this Christmas, give it to me now
I’ve been waiting oh so long but I’ve got through somehow
Give me your heart this festive season because you know just what the reason
Give me your heart this Christmas, come on
Children singing carols, Christmas cards galore
Reindeer on the rooftops bells and hooves and more
Peace on earth this Christmas is something we all need (something we all need)
Lots of food to feed the world let’s put aside the greed

[Chorus]

Give me your heart this Christmas, give it to me now
I’ve been waiting oh so long but I’ve got through somehow
Give me your heart this festive season because you know just what the reason
Give me your heart this Christmas, come on

I want to be home for Christmas sitting by the fire
Bethlehem’s star in the sky is more than I desire
Look outside my window as the snow just starts to fall
There’s one thing you know I want and I want it all
Yes there’s one thing you know I want and I just want it all

[Chorus]

Give me your heart this Christmas, give it to me now (give it to me now)
I’ve been waiting oh so long but I’ve got through somehow
Give me your heart this festive season because you know just what the reason
Give me your heart this Christmas, come on
Give me your heart this Christmas, come on
Give me your heart this Christmas, come on
Give me your heart this Christmas, come on

You Said You’d Love Me

You Said You’d Love Me

[Riff]

You said you’d love me
You’d be my friend
You said you’d be there until the very end
So come on

You said you’d stay
Be by my side
You said you’d be there until the day I died
So come on

You promised me
You’d stay the same
Now come on baby come on and play the game
And come on

[Middle eight]

[Solo]

You said forever
I thought its true
I can’t see it happening when I look at you
So come on

Stole A Kiss From The Girl Next Door

Stole A Kiss From The Girl Next Door

Stole a kiss from the girl next door
She told me not to come back anymore
She’s a lady what a score
I’ll soon be knocking on her door

She slammed the door in my face
I was lost without a trace
I think she did it just in case
What a lady what a taste

I’m gonna open her eyes
I’m gonna make her realise
I’m in love with the girl next door
And I’m gonna go back for more

Well who’s that knocking on my door?
Open up wide can’t believe what I saw
Someone puts me on the floor
No more kisses from the girl next door

Pictures

Pictures

The moon is outside and it’s going to be cold
I wish I was a wiser man and done what I was told
Listen to your parents I can hear them saying now
How did I get it so wrong, I must have done some how

[Chorus]

When It’s all quiet and I am all alone
The house is empty and no one else is home
I look at the past but I know that it isn’t right
I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight
I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight

The night is dark the wind it howls and the sky is black as ink
What went wrong in times gone by I can only lay and think
How could I have made it work what could I have done
I can hear those famous words what are your doing son

[Chorus]

When It’s all quiet and I am all alone
The house is empty and no one else is home
I look at the past but I know that it isn’t right
I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight
I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight

I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight
I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight

I weep alone and wonder what, I’d be doing now
Silence is all around me make the best of it somehow
It’s a bitter pill to swallow but the damage has been done
And you messed it up as usual looking after number one

[Chorus]

When it’s all quiet and I am all alone
The house is empty and no one else is home
I look at the past but I know that it isn’t right
I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight
I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight
I just can’t help it I look at your pictures tonight
I just can’t help it I look at your picture tonight

Leaving Home

Leaving Home

There’s no need to run away
Things can’t be that bad
Just to see you smile again
I’d be so glad I’d be so glad

[Chorus]

Don’t be stupid and go back home
Your parents are worried and they’re on the phone
Driving around and looking for you
Won’t let you out again they won’t let you out again
Won’t let you out again they won’t let you out again

Why did you run away?
Was it because you didn’t have your say
Staying out all night and all day
Parents wouldn’t let your boyfriend stay
Parents wouldn’t let your boyfriend stay

[Chorus]

Don’t be stupid and go back home
Your parents are worried and they’re on the phone
Driving around and looking for you
Won’t let you out again they won’t let you out again
Won’t let you out again they won’t let you out again

Won’t let you out again they won’t let you out again
Won’t let you out again they won’t let you out again

Shut My Eyes

Shut My Eyes

Shut my eyes, wish you were here
I wish the pain would disappear
The pain I felt when I heard you died
I felt so bad that I just cried

Shut my eyes, think of his face
I can see it’s just a haze
He was one of the elite kind
Now he’s living on borrowed time

Shut my mind to the press
All the lies and all the rest
The contradiction in the words
It all seems so absurd

Shut my eyes, think of the past
The good times and the laughs
Look a photo with you in
And I just think what might have been

Shut my eyes and just think
Wish we could have one last drink
One last smoke and one last ride
I can’t believe, can’t believe that you died

Just can’t believe that you died
Just can’t believe that you died
Just can’t believe that you died
Just can’t believe that you died
Just can’t believe that you died

Happiness

Happiness

 

I’ve been drifting for far too long
Everything I do just seems to go wrong
Just don’t know where I belong
Don’t even know if I can finish off this song

I float along it seems forever
Got to decided it’s now or never
Rain or shine whatever the weather
With these bonds I do sever

[Chorus]

Happiness will stop at my platform
Loneliness will pass straight on through
Happiness the red light is on and I’m ready and waiting for you

Got no direction which way to go
Can’t see the signs how should I know
Up and down I’m high and low
Tried to turn back the clocks but they won’t ever go

[Chorus]

Happiness will stop at my platform
Loneliness will pass straight on through
Happiness the red light is on and I’m ready and waiting for you

[Chorus]

Happiness will stop at my platform
Loneliness will pass straight on through
Happiness the red light is on and I’m ready and waiting for you

I’m ready now I’m ready now I’m ready now…
I’m waiting now I’m waiting now I’m waiting

[Chorus]

Happiness will stop at my platform
Loneliness will pass straight on through
Happiness the red light is on and I’m ready and waiting for you

The end is near now and I just can’t shed a tear
I remember the days when I used to hold you near
Time fly’s by there goes another year
I guess I’m okay or so it would appear

[Chorus]

Happiness will stop at my platform
Loneliness will you pass straight on through
Happiness the red light is on and I’m ready and waiting for you

[Chorus]

Happiness will stop at my platform
Loneliness will you pass straight on through
Happiness the red light is on and I’m ready and waiting for you

You Don't Know Me

Listen to a preview


You Don’t Know Me

You don’t know who I am
Or where I came from
Where I was born
Or when I came along

You don’t know what I am like
Or who I’ve seen
What turns me on
Or where I have been

[Chorus]

You know nothing about me
You know nothing at all
Don’t try to judge me
Because it ain’t your call

You don’t know who I like
Or what makes me tick
Where I like to be
Or where I get my kicks

You don’t know where I’m going
Or when I will arrive
Don’t put me down
Because I am alive

[Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus]

You don’t know who I’m like
Or what makes me tick
My leg measurement
Or the size of my dick

You don’t know who I’m like
Or what makes me tick
My leg measurement
Or the size of my dick

[Chorus]

You know nothing about me
You know nothing at all
Don’t try to judge me …
Don’t try to judge me …
Don’t try to judge me …
Cus it ain’t your call

Distance Is Nothing

Distance Is Nothing

[Chorus]

Distance is nothing love conquers all
I need to make that important call
I need to ring
I need to talk
I need to make that important call

When are you gonna realise
That there’s nothing holding you
You’ve gotta have the courage
The strength to see it through
Go and do what makes you happy
Go on and re-arrange
What feels right just can’t be wrong
Go on and make the change … and remember

[Chorus]

When are you gonna tell yourself
To finally get it right
No more tears and no more fears
And no more lonely nights

Because when we’re together
The world’s a better place
I know your so happy
I can tell by the smile on your face

[Chorus]

I don’t care how many miles it takes
Our love can build a bridge
I just don’t care how long it takes
I know that if I have to I can wait

Too Little Too Late

Too Little Too Late

You came into my life you came into my town
I could not believe my eyes as you spun me right around
You said some simple things you said it could be true
I could not believe my luck and I fell in love with you

The time it did just fly and I thought we’d be together
Rose tinted glasses of mine and we would be forever
But times do change and I really could not see
Coming hundred miles an hour was the harsh reality

[Chorus]

Too little too late, and you drove me around the bend
Too little too late, but I’ll always be your friend
Too little too late
I fell at the first gate
Too little too late, now I’m on the mend

I sat there waiting for the phone to ring
I could do nothing at all I could not do a thing
The sun it would stay in it never would come out
My heart was broken yes it was without a doubt

[Chorus]

[Solo]

The tables they have turned and now you make that call
I can’t go back there at all you’re up against the wall
I can’t go through it cause I can see my fate
Though you mean so much to me it’s just too little too late

[Chorus]

You Never Know (What’s ‘Round The Corner)

You Never Know (What’s ‘Round The Corner)

Never know what’s round the corner
Never know what’s round the bend
You know just what I’m feeling
And you know that I’m going to send

Never know what’s round the corner
Is something you still say
You know about my feelings
And you know I can’t fade away

You know that there’s still something
And may be one day
We are meant to be together
Tell me do you the feel the same way

Never know what’s round the corner
Fall in love fall into bed
Never know what’s round the corner
Was something that you said

You know I just can’t ring you
Cause what’s he going to say
You know I just can’t see you
But you know it would make my day

Life In A Year

Life In A Year

As soon as I saw you
I knew that I loved you
From that very first night
I thought it would be alright

We met and we became friends
I wondered if I’d ever see you again
You always seemed to be, on my mind
We clicked and became each other’s kind

As time moved on the closer we came
Our interests and humour they seemed just the same
Your friends were against it and so were the others
It was only a matter of time before we were lovers

[Chorus]

Life in a year, has moved ever so fast
I know that you thought, that it could never last
From friends to lovers, from lovers to friends
From friends to lovers, from lovers to friends
All the way up and down, and round and round again

To hear you laugh would feed my heart
To hear you sad would tear me apart
To see you smile would brighten up my day
But you always were so very far away

Fireworks went off in my head
We just had to touch, let alone in bed
You made me laugh whatever you said
If I just couldn’t see you I’d only see red

[Chorus]

Life in a year, has moved ever so fast
I know you thought, that maybe it could last
From friends to lovers, from lovers to friends
From friends to lovers, from lovers to friends
All the way round and round and up and down again

The moment I woke I was thinking of your name
I know about your feelings they were just the same
You don’t want to see me the moment I dread
Our life in a year has ended up dead

[Chorus]

Life in a year, has moved ever so fast
Know one ever really thought, that it could ever last
From friends to lovers, from lovers to friends
From friends to lovers, from lovers to friends
From friends to lovers, from lovers to friends
From friends to lovers, from lovers to friends
All the way round and round and up and down again

Let Me Tell You

Let Me Tell You

Let me tell you how I’m feeling
Then you can tell me too
I just wanna be close to you baby
Do you feel the same way too

Let me put my arms around you
Everything will be all right
I know we are meant to be together
So let me stay here tonight

Here tonight, here tonight
You always light my fire
Baby you just fan the flame
I can’t sleep when we’re apart
You know it’s always the same

It’s just the same, just the same
It’s just the same, just the same

I can smell your body all around me
Baby I can hear your sound
I can never cope with my feelings
Whenever you’re not around
Whenever you’re not around

You are like a drug and I need you
Come on baby set your self free
I know we were meant to be together
You gotta start living with me
You gotta start living with me

Living with me, living with me [x 4]

Two As One

Two As One

First thing in the morning
And last thing at night
It’s a good feeling
To feel so tight

When I’m at work
I think of you
It’s a long hard day
But you pull me through

[Chorus]

You give me good feelings
You give me good feelings
You give me good feelings
All the time, all the time, all the time, all the time

You give me good feelings
You give me good feelings
You give me good feelings
All the time

I like the moments we spend together
I hope we can go on forever
We stay the same but still get better
I need you like I need fresh air

[Chorus]

[Middle eight]

If you ever leave
Life won’t be the same
I won’t see your friendly smile
Ever again

Song For You

Song For You

Never thought that I would meet you girl
Never thought I’d be so lucky in this world
Never thought that I would meet someone like you
All my hopes and dreams now they are coming true
And they’re coming true, and they’re coming true

When I first saw you I knew this was something real
I knew you were special and how I would now feel
This was the beginning of something oh so great
I could not believe my luck, let alone my fate
Let alone my fate, let alone my fate

[Chorus]

Baby how I need you
It’s the only way
Now that we’re together
And our dreams – they go on forever

And this day I will remember all my life
How can I forget the day you ‘came my wife
I will cherish every moment with my heart
The truth is darling I have been from the start
Have been from the start, have been from the start

[Chorus]

Baby how I need you
It’s the only way
Now that we’re together
And our dreams – they go on forever [x 4]

I Don’t Want To Like You

I Don’t Want To Like You

I don’t want to like you, cause you are in my head
I don’t want to like you, was something that you said
I don’t want to like you, in case we fall in bed
I don’t want to like you, but something else instead

I don’t want to need you, cause you are not around
I don’t want to need you, smell you, hear your sound
I don’t want to need you, is something that I’ve foun
I don’t want to need you, cause I will come unbound
Yes I will come unwound

I don’t want to feel you, in case it just can’t be
I don’t want to feel you, and I don’t wanna see
I don’t want to feel you, in case I pay the fee
And I don’t want to feel you, cause I’ll end up being me

I don’t want to like you cause I will pay the price
I don’t want to like you cause you’ll end up being nice

Mike Smallbone © December 1999
Empty

Empty

I feel empty in my brain
Nothing now can numb the pain
Of your absence in my heart
I feel empty cause your not here
All I feel now is fear, now that we’re apart

I feel empty lost and lame
I wonder if you feel the same
The way I can’t explain, no I can’t explain
I feel empty now your gone
As I sit and write this song
I just got to see you again, need to see you again

Empty just the way I feel
Its not a state of mind its real
Oh it’s in my heart, now that we’re apart
Empty just the way it is
I’m walking into walls and things
And that’s just the start, oh it’s just the start

Empty I feel ball and chained
Empty do you feel the same
What can I do, I got to be next to you
Empty how did I get here
Oh God I need a beer
Got to get here tonight
Everything will be all right

Empty – in my brain
Nothing now can numb the pain
Of your absence in my heart
I feel empty cause your not here
All I feel now is fear
Now that we’re apart, can’t sleep when we’re apart
I can’t sleep when we’re apart [x 3]

They Still Feel It

They Still Feel It

Does it come home, forget they’ll never
The thoughts and the fears live on forever
The smoke and the screams noise and the guns
Lest we forget that they were the ones

They gave their minds they gave their limbs
They stand so proud they sing their hymns
They gave their sight they gave their screams
They gave their lives they gave their dreams

[Chorus]

Do they still feel it on days like today
Don’t ever believe that it’s all gone away
The years roll by the fewer the few
Lets all remember it could have been me or you

Love ones they lost love ones that died
They stood alone they stood and cried
Shoulder to shoulder year after year
No move in sight just the shed of a tear

[Chorus]

[Solo]

The war is over the battle goes on
The less there is as the years roll along
They still feel it you better you bet
Let us remember and never forget [x 4]

[Chorus]

Where It Only Rains Tears

Where It Only Rains Tears

Through eyes and ears of the vision
Fill every room in the house
Etched in our minds forever
Moved to tears though unashamed

A camp for orphans of the famine
Only a ticket proving that
Walk twenty miles for some food
But you didn’t have that piece of paper

There’s been no water from the sky in two years
All it ever rains here is tears
Politics between east and west
Delays vital food to the hungry

I don’t live
Where it only rains tears
I don’t want to live
Where it only rains tears
Famine and fever in just a few years – No!

I don’t live
No I don’t live where it only rains tears
No I don’t live, no I don’t live where it rains tears
