Lyrics

Find A Way

Written By: Caroline Ashkar

How, how would you hold
This heart of mine
And make it whole?

Please remember me
My tiny words
And what they mean

And I will find a way
To make it all okay
With my heart in your hands and heart
I'll find a way

And when, when all is lost
In you I'll trust
To find the way

So hold on to my heart
With all you are
And all you got

And I won't lie to you
But my fear lies in you
With my heart in your hands and heart
I'll find a way

And I will find a way
To make it all okay
With my heart in your hands and heart
I'll find a way

I Will Wait

Written By: Caroline Ashkar

How great could this life be?
I got you and you got me
To wait for you, a dream come true
To wait, I will, for you
To wait, I will, for you

One day we will write in the sky
Sing the song of the birds, you and I
And we won't never say goodbye
One day not long from now, you and I
Yea, one day not long from now, you and I

So do all that you need to do
And I'll be right here when you're through
And I will have to try my best
To wait until my heart can rest

How great could this life be
That our hearts can feel so free
I will wait for you, you're a dream come true
I will wait, I will, for you
I will wait for you, you're a dream come true
I will wait, I will, for you
I will wait for you, you're a dream come true
I will wait, I will, for you
I will wait, I will, for you
I will wait, I will, for you

Funny Things

Written By: Caroline Ashkar

What would it take
to hold on to you again
to make all of this mend
in our hearts

You and me
have somehow now agreed
that this would never be
in our hearts

And oh the funny things that love does
to give the runaround, just because
of all the funny things that love does
this one's the best by far my dear my love

Now all I know
way deep down below
that if home is where the heart is
you've got my heard in tow

Oh yes it's true
If home is where the heart is,
I've left my heart with you

And oh the funny things that love does
to give the runaround, just because
of all the funny things that love does
this one's the best by far my dear my love

With all this back and forth we do
I'll come back around
I'll come back around
With all this back and forth we do
I'll come back around
Back around

And oh the funny things that love does
to give the runaround, just because
of all the funny things that love does
this one's the best by far my dear my love
