Tales From The Riverbank

Original and similar lyrics
Bring you a tale from the pastel fields Where we ran when we were young This is a tale from the water meadows Trying to spread some hope into your heart It's mixed with happiness, it's mixed with tears Both life and death are carried in this stream That open space you could run for miles Now you don't get so many to the pound True it's a dream mixed with nostalgia But it's a dream that I'll always hang on to That I'll always run to Won't you join me by the riverbank Paradise found down by the still waters Joined in the race to the rainbow's end No fears, no worries just a golden country Woke at sunrise, went home at sunset Now life is so critical, life is too cynical We lose our innocence, we lose our very soul True it's a dream mixed with nostalgia But it's a dream that I'll always hang on to That I'll always run to True it's a dream mixed with nostalgia But it's a dream that I'll always hang on to That I always run to Won't you join me by the riverbank Come on and join me by the riverbank

The Dream Song

COLLIN RAYE "Counting Sheep"
(Jason Blume/Karen Taylor-Good) Lay your head on your pillow now Close your eyes I'll tuck you in and I'll kiss you goodnight While you and your teddy bear are countin' sheep Next thing you know, you'll be fast asleep Sleep now my angle your long day is done The very best part of the night has begun Cause we get a present when we go to sleep We get to dream If you have a dream your dream can come true A whole world of wonder is waiting for you life's an adventure there's so much to do If you have a dream your dream can come true You can go walkin' on peppermint clouds And see yourself being' a real circus clown Sail on a river of strawberry cream Be a star or an astronaut, follow your dream A whole world of wonder is waiting for you life's an adventure there's so much to do If you have a dream your dream can come true If you have a dream your dream can come true A whole world of wonder is waiting for you life's an adventure there's so much to do If you have a dream your dream can come true Dream on...dream my love A dream is a whisper from above If you have a dream your dream can come true A whole world of wonder is waiting for you life's an adventure there's so much to do If you have a dream your dream can come true

Tiger In The Night

KATIE MELUA "Call Off The Search"
You are the tiger burning bright Deep in the forest of my night You are the one who keeps me strong In this world You sleep by the silent cooling streams Down in the darkness of my dreams All of my life I never knew You were the dream I'd see come true You are the tiger burning bright. I was the one who looked so hard, I could not see. And now I could never live Without the love you give to me. I lived like a wild and lonely soul, Lost in a dream beyond control. You are the one who brought me home Down to earth. For you are the tiger burning bright Deep in the forst of my night All of my life I never knew You were the dream I'd see come true You are the tiger burning bright

You're The Best Thing Yet

ANITA BAKER "The Songstress"
[Chorus:] You're the best thing yet, to ever come into my life An understanding hand, when the world calls me grand You protect my heart, right from the start Sensitive vibes are strong and true The very best I've always shared with you And if I should fall, or if I'm stading tall I can see you standing there, always willing to share Each and every part of me You see things I never, never see [Chorus x2] Deep down in my mind, I wonder at the blessing that I could find Someone as loving as you Could bring into my life this feeling so right And so true Life the flowing waters of a sliver stream And like the misty vision in a midnight dream Such a wonder of life to me So rare is found such a reason to be [Chorus x2] Like the flowing waters of a silver stream And like the misty vision in a midnight dream Such a wonder of life to me So rare is found such a reason to be [Chorus x2] [Vamp:] You're so wonderful You're so beautiful You're the best thing yet To ever come into my life [Vamp]
