Sissy's Song
Good Time Album by Alan Jackson

Why did she have to go
So young I just don't know why
Things happen half the time
Without reason without rhyme
Lovely, sweet young woman
Daughter, wife and mother
Makes no sense to me
I just have to believe

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

Loved ones she left behind
Just trying to survive
And understand the why
Feeling so lost inside
Anger shot straight at God
Then asking for His love
Empty with disbelief
Just hoping that maybe

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

It's hard to say goodbye
Her picture in my mind
They'll always be of times I'll cherish
And I won't cry 'cause

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't worry 'bout me



    I Believe
    Diamond Rio

"Every now and then, soft as breath upon my skin

I feel you come back again
And itís like you haven't been gone a moment from my side
Like the tears were never cried
Like the hands of time are holding you and me
And with all my heart I'm sure weíre closer than we ever were
I don't have to hear or see, I've got all the proof I need
There are more than angels watching over me
I believe,  Oh I believe

Now when you die,  your life goes on
It doesn't end here when you're gone
Every soul is filled with light
It never ends if I'm right
Our love can even reach across eternity
I believe,  oh I believe

 Forever,  you're a part of me
Forever,  in the heart of me
I will hold you even longer if I can
Oh the people who don't see the most
See that I believe in ghosts
If that makes me crazy, then I am
ĎCause I believe,  oh I believe 

There are more than angels watching over me

I believe,  oh I believe

 Every now and then,  soft as breathe upon my skin

I feel you come back again

And I believeÖÖ"



The Dance
  Garth Brooks


Lookin' back on the memories of
the dance we shared beneath the stars above.
For a moment, all the world was right.
How could I've known that you'd ever say 'good bye?'

And now, I'm glad I didn't know the way it all would end
the way it all would go.
And our lives are better left to chance.
I could have missed the pain, but I'd've had to miss the dance.

Holdin' you, I've held everything.
For a moment, wasn't I the king?
But if I'd only known how the king would fall,
Hey, who's to say, you know, I might have changed it all.

And now, I'm glad I didn't know the way it all would end
the way it all would go.
And our lives are better left to chance.
I could have missed the pain, but I'd've had to miss the dance.

Yes, my life is better left to chance.
I could have missed the pain, but I'd've had to miss the dance.


Fly
  Celine Dion

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless Journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace all one word
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet.

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly, where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light
.

Oh Very Young
  Cat Stevens

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
You're only dancing on this earth for a short while
And though your dreams may toss and turn you now
They will vanish away like your daddy's best jeans
Denim Blue fading up to the sky
And though you want him to last forever
You know he never will
(You know he never will )
And the patches make the goodbye harder still

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
There'll never be a better chance to change your mind
And if you want this world to see a better day
Will you carry the words of love with you
Will you ride the great white bird into heaven
And though you want to last forever
You know you never will
(You know you never will )
And the goodbye makes the journey harder still

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
You're only dancing on this earth for a short while
Oh very young
What will you leave us this time

Poor Wayfaring Stranger
Trace Atkins

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Traveling through this world of woe
Yet thereís no sickness, no toil or danger
In that bright world to which I go

Iím going there to see my father
Iím going there no more to roam
Iím only going over to Jordan
Iím only going over home
Yes, lord

I know dark clouds will gather around me
I know my way is rough and steep
Yet beauteous fields lie just before me
Where godís redeemed their vigils keep

Iím going there to see my mother
She said sheíd meet me when I come
Iím only going over to Jordan
Iím only going over to home
Goiní home now
Oh, somebody show me the way home

A Thousand Miles
Vanessa Carlton

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces passed
And Iím home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my 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
ícause you know Iíd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

Itís always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

ícause everythingís so wrong
And I donít belong
Living in your
Precious memories

ícause 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
ícause you know Iíd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

And i, i
Donít want to let you know
I, i
Drown in your memory
I, i
Donít want to let this go
I, i
Donít....

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces passed
And Iím home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my 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
ícause you know Iíd 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
ícause you know Iíd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight


Not Even the Trees
Hootie and the Blowfish
Alone as I sit and watch the trees
Won't you tell me if I scream will they bend down and listen to me?
And it makes me wonder, if I'll know the words when you come
Or will you laugh at me
Or will I run
Little boy says to me,
"Where you goin' now son?"
I said, "I don't know where I'm goin' boy
I only know where I'm from"
And it makes me wonder
If the stars shine when my eyes close
Or does my brother's heart cry
I don't know
I'm a stranger in my home
Now that everybody's gone
Someone please talk to me
'Cause I feel you cry
And you're sitting with Him
And I know I'll never see you again
Lying down in Charleston under the Carolina sky
You see I'm tired of feeling this pain
I'm tired of living my own little lie
And it makes me wonder
When I see you in my dreams
Does it mean anything
Are you trying to talk to me
I'm a stranger in my home
Tell me are you feeling alone
Someone tell me what to do
'Cause I'm feeling strong
And I wonder how you feel
Does He realize my pain is for real
I see you in my dreams
And I wonder if you're looking down at me
And smiling right now
I wanna know if it's true
When He looks at me
Won't you tell me
Does He realize He came down here
And he took you too soon

And now my days are short and my nights are long
I lay down with memories of you that keep me going on, going on
And it makes me wonder as I sit and stare
Will I see your face again?
Tell me, do you care?
I'm a stranger in my home
Living life on my own
Right now I just can't see
'Cause I'm feeling weak
And my soul begins to bleed
And no one is listening to me, not even the trees

 Live Like You Were Dying
Tim McGraw
He said I was in my early forties
With a lot of life before me
When a moment came that stopped me on a dime
And I spent most of the next days
Looking at the x-rays
And talking about the options, talking 'bout sweet time

And I asked him when it sank in
That this might really be the real end
How's it hit you get that kind of news
Man, what'd you do (he said)

Chorus
I went sky diving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds
On a bull named Fu Man Chu
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
And gave forgiveness I'd been denying
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying

He said I was finally the husband
That most the time I wasn't
And I became a friend a friend would like to have
And all 'a sudden going fishin'
Wasn't such an impostition
And I went three time that year I lost my dad

And I finally read the good book
And I took a good long hard look
At what I'd do if I could do it all
again..... and then

Chorus

Like tommorrow was a gift
And you've got eternity to think about
What you'd do with it
What did you do with it
What did I do with it
What would I do with it

I went sky diving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds
On a bull named Fu Man Chu
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
And I watched an eagle as it was flying
And he said one day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying



 Who You'd Be Today
Kenny Chesney
Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go

I see your smile
I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
I still can't believe your gone

Chorus:
It ain't fair
You died too young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder
Who you'd be today

Would you see the world
Would you chase your dreams
Settle down with a family
I wonder what would you name your babies
Somedays the sky's so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
I know it might sound crazy

Chorus:
It ain't fair
You died too young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder
Who you'd be today

Today, today, today

Today, today, today

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know, I'll see you again someday

Someday, someday

Precious Child
Karen Taylor-Good

In my dreams, you are alive and well
Precious child, precious child
In my mind, I see you clear as a bell
Precious child, precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart, there is hope 
'Cause you are with me still

In my heart, you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

In my plans, I was the first to leave
Precious child, precious child
But in this world, I was left here to grieve
Precious child, my precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart there is hope
And you are with me still
 
In my heart you live on 
Always there never gone
Precious child you left too soon,
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

God knows I want to hold you,
See you, touch you
And maybe there is a heaven
And someday I will again
Please know you are not forgotten until then

In my heart you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

With Hope
Stephen Curtis Chapman
This is not at all how
We thought it was supposed to be

We had so many plans for you
We had so many dreams
And now you are gone away
And left us with the memories of your smile
And nothing we can say
And nothing we can do
Can take away the pain
The pain of losing you, but...
We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again..
And never have I known
Anything so hard to understand
And never have I questioned more
The wisdom of God's plan
But through the cloud of tears
I see the Father's smile and say well done
And I imagine you
Where you wanted most to be
Seeing all your dreams come true
'Cause now you're home
And now you're free, and...
We have this hope as an anchor
'Cause we believe that everything
God promised us is true, so...
We wait with hope
We ache with hope
We hold on with hope
We let go with hope

Only Forever

Cynthia Harrod

When would be a good time for me to say goodbye?
How could I be ready to look one last time in your eyes?
When would I be willing to never see you again?
If God should ask me, I could not say when.

Only forever is enough time to love!
Nothing less than always could fill my heart up.
How much would satisfy the longings of love?
Only forever could ever be enough.

Iíd say you left to soonÖ
     I wanted so much more!
I thought we would have timeÖ
     I thought we had so much in store!

Only forever is enough time to love!
Nothing less than always could fill my heart up.
How much would satisfy the longings of love?
Only forever could ever be enough.

I heard an old, old story, of how Jesus died for love:
God came down among us, then He went back up above!
He said, ďIíll come back to get you!Ē He said, ďI will give you life.Ē
And, ďI will take you to be with Me!Ē For only always is enough.

Only forever is enough time to love!
Nothing less than always could fill His heart up.
How much would satisfy the longings of such love?
Only forever could ever be enough.

Skin
Rascal Flatts
Sarah Beth is scared to death
To hear what the doctor will say
She hasn't been well
Since the day that she fell
And the bruise, it just won't go away
So she sits and see waits with her mother and dad
and Flips through an old magazine
Til the nurse with the smile
Stands at the door
And says will you please come with me

Sarah Beth is scared to death
Cause the doctor just told her the news
Between the red cells and white
Something's not right
But we're gonna take care of you

Six chances in ten it won't come back again
With the therapy were gonna try
It's just been approved
It's the strongest there is
I think we caught it in time

Sarah Beth closes her eyes
and She dreams she's dancing
Around and around without any cares
And her very first love is holding her close
And the soft wind is blowing her hair

Sarah Beth is scared to death
As she sits holding her mom
Cause it would be a mistake
For someone to take
A girl with no hair to the prom

For, just this morning right there on her pillow
Was the cruellest of any surprise
And she cried when she gathered it all in her hands
The proof that she couldn't deny

Sarah Beth closes her eyes
and She dreams she's dancing
Around and around without any cares
and her very first love was holding her close
and the soft wind is blowing her hair

It's quarter to seven
That boy's at the door
And her daddy ushers him in
And when he takes off his cap
They all start to cry
Cause this morning where his hair had been
Softly, she touches just skin

They go dancing around and around
Without any cares
And her very first true love is holding her close
For a moment she isn't scared...

I'm Your Angel
Celene Dion & R. Kelly

No mountain's too high for you to climb
All you have to do, is have some climbing faith, oh yes
No river's too wide for you to make it across
All you have to do is believe it when you pray

And then you will see The morning will come
And everyday will be bright as the sun
All of your fears
Cast them on me I just want you to see

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I hear your voices when you call me
I am your Angel,
And when all hope is gone,
I'm here No matter how far you are, from here
It makes no difference who you are
I am your Angel,
I am your Angel, oh yes

I saw your tear drops, and I heard you cry
All you need is time Seek me and you shall find
You have everything and your still lonely
It don't have to be this way
Let me show you a better day

Oh and then you will see
The morning will come
And all of your days will be bright as the sun
So all of your fears just cast them on me
How can I make you see

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I hear your voices when you call me
I am your Angel,
And when all hope is gone,
I'm here No matter how far you are, from here
It makes no difference who you are
I am your Angel
I am your Angel

And when it's time to face the storm
I'll be right by your side Grace will keep us safe and warm
I know we will survive
And when it seems as if your end is growing near
Don't you dare give up the fight
Just put trust beyond the skies

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I hear your voices when you call me
I am your Angel,
And when all hope is gone,
I'm here No matter how far you are, from here
It makes no difference who you are
I am your Angel
I am your Angel

Probably Wouldn't Be This Way
LeeAnn Rimes

Got a date a week from Friday with the Preacher's son,
Everybody says he's crazy, I'll have to see
I finally moved to Jackson when the summer came,
I won't have to pay that boy to rake my leaves
I'm probably going on and on it seems I'm doing more of that these days

(Chorus:)
I probably wouldn't be this way
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
I never pictured every minute without you in it,
Oh you left so fast,
Sometimes I see you standing there
Sometimes it's like I'm losing touch
Sometimes I feel I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
God give me moments grace
Cause if I'd nevber seen your face
I probably wouldn't be this way

Momma says that I just shouldn't speak to you,
Susan says that I should just move on,
You oughta see the way these people look at me,
When they see me 'round here talking to this stone,
Everybody thinks I've lost my mind but I just take it day by day

(Chorus:)
I probably wouldn't be this way
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
I never pictured every minute without you in it,
Oh you left so fast,
Sometimes I see you standing there
Sometimes it's like I'm losing touch
Sometimes I feel I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
God give me moments grace
Cause if I'd never seen your face
I probably wouldn't be this way

I probably wouldn't be this way,
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad,
I never pictured every minute without you in it,
Oh you left so fast,
Sometimes I see you standing there,
Sometimes I feel an angels touch
Sometimes I feel that I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
God give me a moments grace
Cause if I'd never see your face
I probably woudln't be this way
I probably wouldn't be this way

Got a date a week from a Friday with the Preacher's son,
Everybody says I'm crazy, guess I'll have to see

You're at Peace in His Love
Copyright © 1999 Elton Smith and Larry Holder

(Verse 1)
I recall the day
Jesus called you home,
And He set you free from all the hurt and pain.
Now you live with Him
In joy that never ends,
And one day I know I'll join you there
And see you once again.

(Chorus)
Though for now you're gone,
It is just a little while,
Till the Lord gathers all up above.
As I think of you now,
There is comfort and a smile;
You're at peace in His love.

(Verse 2)
When you left that day,
We had to wonder why --
Still so many things we do not understand.
But we trust in God
Who makes our lives complete
And by faith we carry onward,
For our lives are in His hand.

(Repeat Chorus)
Though for now you're gone,
It is just a little while,
Till the Lord gathers all up above.
As I think of you now,
There is comfort and a smile;
You're at peace in His love.

(Verse 3)
With the angels you sing
In your new-found home,
To the One who will dry every tear.
One day we will join
The chorus up above.
We shall all be reunited,
And the night shall disappear!

(Repeat Chorus Two Times)
Though for now you're gone,
It is just a little while,
Till the Lord gathers all up above.
As I think of you now,
There is comfort and a smile;
You're at peace in His love.

(Ending)
You're at peace in His love.

Sometimes when I sleep
I can see you walking back to me
And sometimes I wake up

Then emotions, overcome me
And the darkness is so cold.

Til she's back here in my arms again
Oh and tell her how I love her
And I'll be waitin' right here forever
Amen

I feel the angels come and fill this room
Oh when you're gone I miss you so much
I do the only thing I can do
I pray for you
I pray for you

As Long As You Love (Scarlet Wings)
Words and Music by Cindy Bullens


Time has a different meaning now
Since you found your scarlet wings
Forever seems like yesterday
But only angels know these things

I can hear your voice sometimes at night
And it echoes through the day
When my soul cries out from missing you
I remember what you say

As long as you love
You will see me in the stars
As you look up at the stars
I will be there

As long as you love
I will whisper in your ear
Little whispers you will hear
As long as you love
As long as you love

You are standing here beside me now
As I watch the children play
To those of us you left behind
You are never far away

Even heaven cannot hold your heart
For no boundaries love allows
So little angel spread those scarlet wings
As you whisper to me now

As long as you love
You will feel me in the sun
In the warming of the sun
I will be there

As long as you love
You will understand the rain
You must bless the falling rain
As long as you love

As long as you love
You will see me in the stars...


When I Get Where I'm Going
Brad Paisley


When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

(Chorus:)
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my granddaddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck

(Chorus)

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
Hallelujah
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah when I get where I'm going


If I Had Only Known

by Reba McIntyre

If I had only known
It was the last walk in the rain
I'd keep you out for hours in the storm
I would hold your hand
Like a life line to my heart
Underneath the thunder we'd be warm
If I had only known
It was our last walk in the rain

If I had only known
I'd never hear your voice again
I'd memorize each thing you ever said
And on those lonely nights
I could think of them once more
Keep your words alive inside my head
If I had only known
I'd never hear your voice again

You were the treasure in my hand
You were the one who always stood beside me
So unaware I foolishly believed
That you would always be there
But then there came a day
And I turned my head and you slipped away

If I had only known
It was my last night by your side
I'd pray a miracle would stop the dawn
And when you'd smile at me
I would look into your eyes
And make sure you know my love
For you goes on and on
If I had only known
If I had only known
The love I would've shown
If I had only known


Once in a While
by Billy Dean

Once in a while, someone comes along.
That one in a million heart,
So pure and so strong.
They can face up to the tears.
And somehow still find a smile,
That we only get ev'ry once in a while.

Once in a while, someone has the eyes,
That one in a million look,
That never tells lies.
They can get you on your feet,
To walk that extra mile.
We only see ev'ry once in a while.

    That's why we call them heroes.
    That's why we know their names,
    And once you've heard their stories,
    You're never quite the same.

    That's why we call them heroes.
    The best thing they ever do,
    Is to point to the best in us all,
    And say: "If I can, you can too."

Once in a while, I still hear his voice.
That one in a million sound,
Like two laughin' boys.
He would hate it if we cried,
That never was his style.
Oh, we still miss him ev'ry once in a while.

Instrumental break.

Ohh.
They can face up to the tears.
And somehow still find a smile,
That we only get ev'ry once in a while.

Oh, how I miss  him ev'ry once in a while.


The Rose
by Bette Midler

Some say love it is a river
that drowns the tender reed
Some say love it is a razer
that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love it is a hunger
an endless aching need
I say love it is a flower
and you it's only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of wakingthat never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dyingthat never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winterfar beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose


My Heart Will Go On

by Celene Dion

Every night in my dreams
I see you. I feel you.
That is how I know you go on.

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on.

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never go till we're one

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

There is some love that will not
go away

You're here, there's nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on


Stairway to Heaven

Eric Clapton


There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who standing looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.


Wind Beneath My Wings

by Bette Midler


Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, ohhh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.



Go Rest High On That Mountain

Vince Gill


I know your life on earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

(Chorus)
Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered 'round your grave to grieve
I wish I could see the angels' faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

Repeat (Chorus)

Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son


Our Angels
