The Closer You Get

Original and similar lyrics
spoken: I was walkin'home from school on a cold winter day, took a short cut through the woods and I lost my way. It was gettin' late, and I was scared and alone. Then a kind old man took my hand, and led me home. sung: mama couldn't see him, but he was standing there, and I knew in my heart he was the answer to my prayer. Chorus: Oh, I believe there are Angels Among Us, sent down to us from somewhere up above. They come to you and me in our darkest hours to show us how to live to teach us how to give to guide us with a light of love. Verse 2 When life held troubled times and had me down on my knees there's always been someone to come along and comfort me a kind word from a stranger to lend a helping hand a phone call from a friend just to say I understand Now ain't it kind of funny at the dark end of the road someone light the way with just a single ray of hope. repeat Chorus Bridge: They wear so many faces, show up in the strangest places and grace us with their mercies in our time of need. repeat chorus to guide us with a light of love

American Hearts

AIR SUPPLY "Lost In Love"
They were married in September back in 1969 They traveled east to India to find some peace of mind They stood for love and freedom They were children of their time, wo wo They lived in a world that was cold and uncaring They swore they would change it with love and sharing They never lived like their parents had done Their innocence shone like the sun (Chorus) American hearts, so filled with emotion American hearts, so easily broken Now they've got a family and a cottage in the hills He's always working late to pay the mortgage and the bills And she has trouble sleeping so the doctor gives her pills, wo wo Who are these strangers who used to be lovers? Now they've got nothing to say to each other Too far apart to discuss their mistakes They fought with divorce and it breaks their (Chorus) Now that it's over, they each go on living Never forgetting but somehow forgiving They'll care for their children Protect them with pride And that's how the dream will survive in (Repeat Chorus)

I Won't Last A Day Without You

Maureen McGovern "The Morning After"
(Paul Williams, R. Nichols) Day after day, I must face the world of strangers Where I don't belong I'm not that strong It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to Who will always care You're always there CHORUS: When there's no getting over that rainbow, When my smallest of dreams won't come true, I can take all the madness the world has to give But I won't last a day without you So many times when the city seems to be without A friendly face, It's a lonely place, It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you And you'll always smile It's all worthwhile CHORUS Touch me and I end up singin' Troubles seem to up and disappear You touch me with the love you're bringin' I can't really lose when you're near When you're near, my love If all my friends have forgotten half their promises, They're not unkind, Just hard to find One look at you and I know that I could learn to live Without the rest I've found the best CHORUS (repeat and fade out)
