Forever young – Lyrics
Let’s dance in style, let’s dance for a while
Heaven can wait, we’re only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don’t have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music’s for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders, we’re getting in tune
The music’s played by the, the mad men

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

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 don’t they stay young?

It’s so hard to get old without a cause
I don’t want to perish like a fading horse
Youth’s like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn’t happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

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

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

There is nothing like the magic of the season

A perfect miracle – Lyrics

I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle
I’d part the clouds and have the sun proudly shining on you
I’d take the stars as well and line them up to spell “Darling, I love you”
And little by little watch it all come true

I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle
I’d catch the wind and have it blow all my kisses to you
I’ll take the birds and teach them all the words of every love song I know
And I’d have them fly around and sing them all to you

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
I won’t get to see you today
My mind is a mess and I’m needing you less
Give me a call in a little while

I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle
‘Cause every time I close my eyes, I’m just dreaming of you
There ain’t a man around could knock me off my cloud ’cause “Darling, I love you”
And little by little watch it all come true

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
I won’t get to see you this week
Lately I’ve found I don’t need you around
I don’t think it’s working out anyway
Anyway, and…

I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle
‘Cause you’re the only girl I ever met who’s honest and true
I’d like to settle down with you and mess around a house on the hill
And I’m sitting here hoping it’ll all come true
(Sitting here hoping it’ll all come true)

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
(I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle)
I won’t get to see you this spring
(I’d part the clouds and have the sun proudly shining on you)
My phone has been broke and I thought that we spoke
(I’d take the stars as well and line them up to spell “Darling, I love you”)
Don’t think it’s working out anyway
(And little by little watch it all come true)
Anyway, and…

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
(I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle)
I won’t get to see you this year
(I’d catch the wind and have it blow all my kisses to you)
I hate to confess but I’ve changed my address
(I’ll take the birds and teach them all the words of every love song I know)
I haven’t been home in a little while
(And I’d have them fly around and sing them all to you)
A little while, and…

Darling, you know, I’m sorry
(I’d like to sit around and dream you up a perfect miracle)
I won’t get to see you again
(I’d like to tell the whole world I’m crazy ’bout you)
I met someone else, you should do it yourself
(I like you every second, every minute, every hour of the day)
So darling, please don’t call
(But now I’m sitting here going “When you gonna come home?”)
Please don’t call

How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

 [John  Lewis]

This year’s story is about the power of a gift. And how that gift inspired, changed and influenced the course of a little boy’s life. That little boy just happens to be Elton John. The film begins in present day and works backwards chronologically through Elton’s life right until the moment on Christmas morning when he received the special gift that changed his life.

Your Song Lyrics

It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I don’t have much money but boy if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you

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 while you’re in the world

Writer(s): JOHN ELTON, TAUPIN BERNARD J P

One day I’ll fly away

One day I’ll fly away

 

 [John  Lewis]

One Day I’ll Fly Away

I follow the night
Can’t stand the light

One day I’ll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
What more can your love do for me
When will love be through with me
Why live life from dream to dream
And dread the day when dreaming ends

One day I’ll fly away!
Leave all this to yesterday!
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day when dreaming ends

The music is One Day I’ll Fly Away performed by Vaults, the original song was by Randy Crawford.  Find the track HERE
