Power Of Two

Original and similar lyrics
Now the parking lot is empty Everyone's gone someplace I pick you up and in the trunk I've packed A cooler and a two-day suitcase Cause there's a place we like to drive Way out in the country Five miles out of the city limit we're singing And your hand's upon my knee So we're okay, we're fine Baby I'm here to stop your crying Chase all the ghosts from your head I'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed Smarter than the tricks played on your heart We'll look at them together then we'll take them apart Adding up the total of a love that's true Multiply life by the power of two You know the things I'm afraid of I'm not afraid to tell And if we ever leave a legacy It's that we loved each other well Cause I've seen the shadows of so many people Trying on the treasures of youth But a road that's fancy and fast ends in a fatal crash And I'm glad we got off to tell you the truth Cause we're okay, we're fine Baby I'm here to stop your crying Chase all the ghosts from your head I'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed Smarter than the tricks played on your heart We'll look at them together then we'll take them apart Adding up the total of a love that's true Multiply life by the power of two Emily: All the shiny little trinkets of temptation Something new instead of something old All you gotta do is scratch beneath the surface And it's fool's gold Fool's gold Fool's gold Amy: Make new friends but Keep the old But remember What is gold What is gold What is gold Now we're talking bout a difficult thing And your eyes are getting wet I tookus for better and I took us for worse Now don't you ever forget Now the steel bars between me and a promise Suddenly bend with ease And the closer I'm bound in love to you The closer I am to free So we're okay, we're fine Baby I'm here to stop your crying Chase all the ghosts from your head I'm stronger than a monster beneath your bed I'm smarter than the tricks played on your heart We'll look at them together then we'll take them apart Adding up the totals of a love that's true Multiply life by the power of two

Worlds Apart

JARS OF CLAY "Jars Of Clay"
I am the only one to blame for this Somehow it all adds up the same Soaring on the wings of selfish pride I flew too high and like Icarus I collide With a world I try so hard to leave behind To rid myself of all but love to give and die To turn away and not become Another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves more deeply than the oceans, more abundant than the tear Of a world embracing every heartache Can I be the one to sacrifice Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow To love you - take my world apart To need you - I am on my knees To love you - take my world apart To need you - broken on my knees All said and done I stand alone Amongst remains of a life I should not own It takes all I am to believe In the mercy that covers me Did you really have to die for me All I am for all you are Because what I need and what I believe are worlds apart [Additional lyrics:] I look beyond the empty cross forgetting what my life has cost and wipe away the crimson stains and dull the nails that still remain More and more I need you now, I owe you more each passing hour the battle between grace and pride I gave up not so long ago So steal my heart and take the pain and wash the feet and cleanse my pride take the selfish, take the weak, and all the things I cannot hide take the beauty, take my tears the sin-soaked heart and make it yours take my world all apart take it now, take it now and serve the ones that I despise speak the words I can't deny watch the world I used to love fall to dust and thrown away I look beyond the empty cross forgetting what my life has cost so wipe away the crimson stains and dull the nails that still remain so steal my heart and take the pain take the selfish, take the weak and all the things I cannot hide take the beauty, take my tears take my world apart, take my world apart I pray, I pray, I pray take my world apart

I'm Gonna Love You

JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT "Love Songs"
Angel in disguise Stories in his eyes Love for every true heart that it sees. Was it just a lucky day That it turned to look my way Or is it Heaven right before my very eyes. He showed me all new things The shimmer of moonbeans I was blind, but now he's helped me see. I was lost but now I'm found His happiness surrounds And now I find that my dreams can come true. [Chorus] Cause I'm gonna love you for the rest of my life I'm holding you safe here in this heart of mine I can't live without you cause my soul would die You know I'm telling the truth, I'll spend the rest of my life loving you It didn't start this way It happened just one day You smiled at me and I saw you, differently. Now I'm a tremble just to be A part of you as we Begin a life that's sure to never end. [Chorus]

The Ballad Of Sacco And Vanzetti, Part 2

JOAN BAEZ "From Every Stage"
Father, yes, I am a prisoner Fear not to relay my crime The crime is loving the forsaken Only silence is shame And now I'll tell you what's against us An art that's lived for centuries Go through the years and you will find What's blackened all of history Against us is the law With its immensity of strength and power Against us is the law! Police know how to make a man A guilty or an innocent Against us is the power of police! The shameless lies that men have told Will ever more be paid in gold Against us is the power of the gold! Against us is racial hatred And the simple fact that we are poor My father dear, I am a prisoner Don't be ashamed to tell my crime The crime of love and brotherhood And only silence is shame With me I have my love, my innocence, The workers, and the poor For all of this I'm safe and strong And hope is mine Rebellion, revolution don't need dollars They need this instead Imagination, suffering, light and love And care for every human being You never steal, you never kill You are a part of hope and life The revolution goes from man to man And heart to heart And I sense when I look at the stars That we are children of life Death is small
