JOHN DENVER lyrics - Seasons Of The Heart

Shanghai Breezes

Original and similar lyrics
It's funny how you sound as if you're right next door when you're really half a world away. I just can't seem to find the words I'm looking for to say the things that I want to say. I can't remember when I felt so close to you, it's almost more than I can bear. And though I seem a half a million miles from you, you are in my heart and living there. And the moon and the stars are the same ones you see, it's the same old sun up in the sky. And your voice in my ear is like heaven to me like the breezes here in old Shanghai. There are lovers who walk hand in hand in the park and lovers who walk all alone. There are lovers who lie unafraid in the dark and lovers who long for home. Oh, I couldn't leave you even if I wanted to, you're in my dreams and always near. And especially when I sing the songs I wrote for you, you are in my heart and living there. And the moon and the stars are the same ones you see, it's the same old sun up in the sky. And your face in my dreams is like heaven to me just like the breezes here in old Shanghai. Shanghai breezes, cool and clearing, evening's sweet caress. Shanghai breezes, soft and gentle, remind me of your tenderness. And the moon and the stars are the same ones you see, it's the same old sun up in the sky. And your love in my life is like heaven to me, like the breezes here in old Shanghai. And the moon and the stars are the same ones you see, it's the same old sun up in the sky. And your love in my life is like heaven to me, like the breezes here in old Shanghai. Just like the breezes here in old Shanghai

Shy Of The Moon

THE WALLFLOWERS "The Wallflowers"
Pretty little girl on the side of the road Yellow hair in a yellow bow Little thumb sticking in the exit lane Two packs of smokes and a candy cane With women hips and baby lips A Hallelujah book in the back of a pillow-slip. If she gets out of here too soon She'll run fast by the shy of the moon. If she's been havin' the same old dreams, Of lullabies and pale blue skies Fallen asleep beneath the stars, Orion aims and shoots his arrows oh so far Aims 'em hard, He shoots the moon and takes her as his own reward. If she's gonna see those stars too soon She'll run fast by the shy of the moon. If she found out so long ago That she wants more than all she knows The river ends right as she goes, Water breaks and she's gone down in the undertow, She's below, But I'll stand tall and hold up high my mistletoe. She's gonna shine just like brand new, She'll take my hand and we'll run by the shy of the moon.

Holes To Heaven

JACK JOHNSON "On And On"
The air was more than human And the heat was more than hungry And the cars were square and spitting diesel fumes The bulls were running wild because they're big and mean and sacred and the children playing cricket with no shoes The next morning we woke up man To a seven-hour drive Well there we were in South Batong Where Women are men and men go wrong And there were so many fewer questions When stars were still just the holes to heaven, mmm Man and there were so many fewer questions When stars were still just the holes to heaven, mmm Officials were quite friendly once we bribed them w/ our sweet talk and we drown them with our cigerettes and booze Disembarking from the port with no mistakes of any so Moving southly engine running smooth The next morning we woke up man with the sunrise to right well moving back north to port blair where boats break and children stare And there were so many fewer questions When stars were still just the holes to heaven, mmm and there were so many fewer questions When stars were still just the holes to heaven, mmm

The Road

JACKSON BROWNE "Running On Empty"
(Danny O'Keefe) Highways and dancehalls A good song takes you far Your write about the moon And you dream about the stars Blues in old motel rooms Girls in daddy's car You sing about the nights And you laugh about the scars Coffee in the morning cocaine afternoons You talk about the weather And you grin about the rooms Phone calls long distance To tell how you've been Forget about the losses, you exaggerate the wins And when you stop to let 'em know You've got it down It's just another town along the road The ladies come to see you If your name still rings a bell They give you damn near nothin' And they'll say they knew you well So you tell 'em you'll remember But they know it's just a game And along the way their faces All begin to look the same And when you stop to let 'em know You got it down It's just another town along the road Well it isn't for the money And it's only for a while You stalk about the rooms And you roll away the miles Gamblers in the neon, clinging to guitars You're right about the moon But you're wrong about the stars And when you stop to let 'em know You got it down It's just another town along the way

Starlit Hour

Glenn Miller
Stairway To the Stars Johnny Mathis Words by Mitchell Parish and Music by Matt Malneck and Frank Signorelli This version did not chart but In 1939, 4 versions charted: Glenn Miller (#1); Kay Kyser (#4); Jimmy Dorsey (#8) and Al Donohue (#12) INTRO There's a silver trail of moonlight leading upward to the sky And the night is like a velvet lullaby There's a heaven of blue And we'll go there, just you and I Let's build a stairway to the stars And climb that stairway to the stars With love beside us to fill the night with a song We'll hear the sound of violins Out yonder where the blue begins The moon will guide us as we go drifting along CHORUS: Can't we sail away on a lazy daisy petal Over the rim of the hill? Can't we sail away on a little dream And settle high on the crest of a thrill? Let's build a stairway to the stars A lovely stairway to the stars It would be heaven to climb to heaven with you Let's build a stairway to the stars A lovely stairway to the stars It would be heaven to climb to heaven with you

I am just a small town boy But don't hold that against me Mum's a lawyer, Dad's got a bank But really I'm OK Should I stop or should I go I'm full of indecision I'd throw it away for a dollar a day If I could be like... You made me promise not to mention You can call round any time of day and see Me and my family These things are sent to try us Or to land us in hot water Turning grey as my Tube record plays When I call you, come as you are You don't need fancy cars or finery You don't need a credit card to buy me They'll never understand I bite the hand that's feeding me Saying I must be mad--that's a matter of opinion You, I'll give you all of my affection You and I can celebrate defection Get up and go tonight, I've seen the light that's leading me Saying that I'll be back well that's a matter of opinion We'll work we don't care how long it takes us We'll save we'll buy that house on the hill some day Never thought I'd be the black sheep of the family Never thought I'd be the black sheep of the family Control me, console me, conceive me, consume me We all need some space Just a little room to breathe My girl friend sees me I know that I couldn't do it alone We will shine for you Come and share the atmosphere up here, now that we're Over, over the moon It feels like we're in Heaven, Heaven Over, over the moon It feels like we're in Heaven now Over, over the moon It feels like we're in Heaven, Heaven Over, over the moon It feels like we're in Heaven now Never thought I'd be the black sheep of the family ==================================================================== ===
