Lyrics

To Be the Best of Me

Written By: Beth Vivio

When I woke up this morning I had a smile upon my face
Can this really be happening in this time and place?
After all these years of trying wanting to give up
I finally reached what I've been working for and now I eagerly will walk through that door
This is my destiny what life has in store for me
And I am humbled and I am grateful to be given this opportunity to be the best of me
I've been working really hard with disappointments along the way
But good things don't come easy we hear the wise men say
But I always knew deep in my heart that one day it would all come true
With you here beside me there is nothing that I can't do
This is my destiny what life has in store for me
And I am humbled and I am grateful to be given the possibility to be the best of me
And what does it mean to be the best of me?
Do I really understand this responsibility?
So I pray at night for guidance and I listen carefully so I can nurture what God has given me
This is my destiny what life has in store for me
And I am humbled and I am grateful to given this possibility to be the best of me
To be the best of me
To be the best of me

And Then the Rain Came

Written By: Beth Vivio

And then the rain came
While I was standing here
And then my life changed
Leaving no one near
And now I stand alone
Left here without a home
And the rain won’t wash away my pain

And now I’m filled with despair
What am I to do?
Must I accept this help that comes from you
Can I really trust that you truly care?
Move my life away
Why should I dare?

You didn’t see me before the rain
You didn’t here my early cries of pain
You make assumptions about my life and me
You don’t take the time to really see
Who are you to help me?

So now I must go on
To catch the light of dawn
I will try to find a little peace of mind
But in my own way
You do not get a say
In where I go or what I do

And now I’m filled with hope
And I will go on
I will trust that God won’t lead me wrong
Into a brand new life with no more strife
I will be strong
And sing my song

You didn’t see me before the rain
You didn’t here my early cries of pain
You make assumptions about my life and me
You don’t take the time to really see
Who are you to help me?

And then the rain came
While I was standing there
And yes my life changed
But now I have you here
I’m no longer alone
I have found a new home
But I will never forget the rain
I will never forget the rain

So We'll Dance

Written By: Beth Vivio


I look at you and see
The way life ought to be
It’s hard for me to know
Why I love you so
My memories fade in
My memories fade out
Leaving me with so much doubt

Who I am, who are you
What are we supposed to do
Now that I’ve grown so old
My mind is stark and cold
It’s so very sad to see
What used to be

So we’ll dance together
Pretending it’s okay
So we’ll dance together
Sharing one more day
Surrounded by our family
God and love will set us free
So we’ll dance together
So we’ll dance

Some days are good
Some days are bad
With so much love
I really should be glad
Glad, just to be alive
Somehow we will survive
We’ll find our way
Living day by day

One day soon the lights will dim
I’ll fade to black
I’ll let you in
So you can say goodbye
I will hear your cry
I will close the door
I will be no more

But until that day let’s just hold on
You’ve done so well at being strong
I know you hurt inside
I know you hide your pride
There’s nothing I can say
To take your pain away

So we’ll dance together
Pretending it’s okay
So we’ll dance together
Sharing one more day
Surrounded by our family
God and love will set us free
So we’ll dance together
So we’ll dance
