Lyrics

Someone's Waiting

Written By: Joel Wade/ Scott Mathews

She lived a hard life
Endless days and sleepless nights
But she held on tight
To her dream of a better life
Her daddy left their home
When she was only four
But she grew up strong
Understanding some things go wrong
Someone's Waiting
Just to fill her heart with a love
That can't be torn apart
When she finds him they're gonna hold on tight
To their dream of a better life
When she turned seventeen she thought she found her dream
But that boy said he didn't want to be tied down
It broke her heart when he left town
Now that she's thirty-two
In spite of all that she's been through
She don't cry anymore
Because she knows what she's waiting for
Someone's Waiting
Just to fill her heart with a love
That can't be torn apart
When she finds him they're gonna hold on tight
To their dream of a better life
She often stares out her window
Out into the night
She don't know where the wind blows
But somehow she knows it's going to be alright
Someone's waiting
Just to fill her heart with a love that can't be torn apart
Cuz when you find love love you better hold on tight
To your dream of a better life
Come on with me now we're going to find a love that can't be torn apart
Hold on to your dream of a better life

Promises

Written By: Joel Wade

A1:
I’m just a young boy finding out where my destiny lies
But some say it seems I’ve been around for quite a while…

I’ve felt the pain of loss when my father died…..
And I’ve seen the joy of love shining in mother’ eyes

B:\
Just assume I’ll make room for you in my heart
Just take my hand & we’ll run Far Away
But don’t ask me to stay…

Chorus:\
Cuz just some empty promises is all you’ll get
Nothing but a promise that I’ll …Soon forget

A2:
This life out on the road Suits me just fine…
I keep acqaintances short & my suitcase light
Ya see, I know that Lennon was right ..That Love is all you need
But I’m leaving at first light So baby hold me close.. tonight….

B2:Just assume I’ll make room for you in my heart
Just take my hand and we’ll run far away
But don’t ask me to stay cuz my heart can never be tamed…

Just some empty promises…is what you’ll get
Nothing but a promise that I’ll…Soon forget

As Long as We've Got Each Other

Written By: Joel Wade

From the green fields of Missouri to the blue skies of Oklahoma
I'll be loving You
Top the mountains of Colorado to the sands of California
My love is strong & true

As long as we've got each other
I know we cam make this work
No matter what comes our way
As long as we've got each other
As long as we both believe
We can make it through

When the winds come down from Alberta
and the rain won't stop for days
I'll be loving you
and just when we start to falter
and it seems we've lost our way
Our love comes shining through

As long as we've got each other
I know we cam make this work
No matter what comes our way
As long as we've got each other
As long as we both believe
We gonna make it through

When I wake in the morning
and I see all the heartache in the world
I just hold on to you...just hold on to you...ya

As Long As We've Got Each Other
(chorus out)

Thing That Matters Most

Written By: Joel Wade

I was only 12 when we moved to the city & everything changed
A whole new life, a whole new world & I started high school that year
Time goes by you realize the thing that matters most is the love that's in your life
On this lonely road that we've travelled down so far friends can be left behind
Stayed together though it was hard & had two beautiful girls
But sometimes good things go wrong & I headed out on the road again
Time goes by you realize the thing that matters most is the love that's in your life
On this lonely road that we've travelled down so far baby friends can be left behind
Be with you always my Linda-Lou under the desert moon
Oh you were my first love my Linda-lou under the desert moon
Well time goes by like it always does & everything changed
I's writing this song when I got the call that you'd left it all behind
Time goes by you realize the thing that matters most is the love that's in your life
On this lonely road that we've travelled down so far friends can be left behind
The thing that matters most is the love that's in your life The thing that matters most
Be with you always my Linda-Lou under the desert moon
oh you were my first love my Linda-lou under the desert moon

Everyday People

Written By: Joel Wade

Let me tell the story bout a man on the run lives he's ruptured, damage he's done.
A fire burning rages on in his heart like a wolf when he's hungry loose on the run
Listen to me closely you might be amazed, he's got a gun to his conscience not a dime to his name
All he wants to do is the best that he can & the lines on his face show the heart of the man.
Take a look at my face tell me what ya see Everyday People they just wanna free
Take a look at my face tell me what ya see Everyday People just wanna free

Lost in the battle took the life of a friend got a medal for valor for a graph of his skin
Might be a thief stealing your heart if you take him for granted gonna tear you apart
Left or abused you've got to live with yourself if your mind's affected you get put on the shelf.
It could be you, it could be me, out on the street alone in the dark
Take a look at my face tell me what ya see Everyday People just wanna free
Take a look at my face tell me what ya see Everyday People they just wanna free

Love is a fire a flame in your heart the miracle's lost if you break it apart
All he wants to do is the best that he can & the lines on his face they show the heart of the man
Take a look at my face tell me what you see Everyday People just wanna be free
Take a look at my face tell me what ya see Everyday People they just wanna free
Take a look at my face tell me what ya see Everyday People just wanna free
