Time For Changing

Written By: Dean O'Leary

Time For Changing – Dean O’Leary

Well I got myself into this mess,
Trying hard to make the best of it.
One big heart filled up with emptiness,
Longing for a life worth more than this.

It’s a time for changing
It’s a time to stand up and be whole.

It’s a time for changing
It’s a time to grow up and move on.

A dream is worth investigating
The biggest fear is to not follow it through
Swayed too often by what people say
I’ve go to walk my road, my own way

It’s a time for changing
It’s a time to stand up and be whole.

It’s a time for changing
It’s a time to grow up and move on.

I know that it’s not time to
Drop all my dreams and leave
Nothing can interfere with
What you can truly believe

It’s a time for changing
It’s a time to stand up and be whole.

It’s a time for changing
It’s a time to grow up and move on.

It’s a time for changing
It’s a time for changing

Now’s the time for change
Now’s the time for change
Now’s the time for change
Now’s the time for change

Golden Day - Dean O'Leary

Take your time, I'll wait for you
Refuse to hide, I crave the truth
In your eyes, I'm fallin' for you
Deep inside, I'm callin' you

The question is where do I stand
Where do I stand

Chorus:
When the rain dries up
I hope the sun will shine some luck
Don't wanna spend another golden day alone

I've got my mind made up
No more will be my eyes wide shut
Don't wanna spend another golden day alone alone alone

Lay it all out for me
I'm ready to be complete
Listen to you endlessly
Forget about the time of day
I've opened my door
I want you in
Together we'll fall from the rain cloud
I don't to walk these streets alone, all alone
Chorus:
When the rain dries up
I hope the sun will shine some luck
Don't wanna spend another golden day alone

I've got my mind made up
No more will be my eyes wide shut
Don't wanna spend another golden day alone alone alone

Hold on Hold on to it all
Hold on like never before
Don't let go

Chorus:
When the rain dries up
I hope the sun will shine some luck
Don't wanna spend another golden day alone

I've got my mind made up
No more will be my eyes wide shut
Don't wanna spend another golden day alone alone alone

Love Left Here

Written By: Dean O'Leary

Love Left Here-Dean O’Leary.

Say it tonight, don’t wait for tomorrow.
Lay it down right, don’t beg steal or borrow,
Get ready to ride, you’re the eyes in this storm,
Straight down the line, don’t stray from the matter.

All I know is love has left ,
All I know is love has left ,
All I know is love left here tonight.
Love left here, tonight (x3) Ooh.

You may not like what you’re hearing.
I dont like what I’m feeling.
I can’t go on believing, to my heart I would be decieving.

All I know is love has left ,
All I know is love has left ,
All I know is love left here tonight.
Love left here, tonight (x3) Ooh.

Rain Song

Written By: Dean O’Leary

Rain Song-Dean O’Leary.

The water wells are drying up.
Your tears are no good for the drinking cup.
The one thing we are made of, we’re in need, they’re in need.
We complain in the city, about rain pouring down on our streets.
If the tables and it’s our time to burn,
we’d feel the heat, yeah feel the heat.

It’s time for another rain song,
I’m praying to the rain gods.
I’m yearning for that taste upon my tounge,
To give life to all who need it.

Now’s the time to feel some weight,
There are people out there with no escape.
Depending on rain, it can drive you insane,
When your crop wont grow, it just wont grow.
Take time to make time, might be the last time we sing for rain.
If our hearts will flow, continue to grow with believing, and relieving.

It’s time for another rain song,
I’m praying to the rain gods.
I’m yearning for that taste upon my tounge,
To give life to all who need it.

They need the sound of running water,
Animals ly dying on the land,
They need the taste of water,
Too many lost, slipping through there hands.

It’s time for another rain song,
I’m praying to the rain gods.
I’m yearning for that taste upon my tounge,
To give life to all who need it.

Repeat.

Yeah rain song, ooh rain song, ooh,
ooh ooh ooh ooh rain song (x2)

It’s time for another rain song (x4)
