You tell me to be cool
Don’t scream, don’t cry, don’t act a fool
I try, but I wonder why
It’s like holding back the ocean

I try to separate myself
I try to get all the information, all the facts
Deep Breath and relax

‘Cause emotion rules -
the tingles in my fingers
chills runs down my spine
tears in my eyes
until my world is blurred and blind

‘Cause emotion rules
our words and our bodies
chills runs down my spine
I sometimes wonder
Is my world just blurred and blind?

Here I go again, crying like a baby
Taken over by a wave
You try to fix my pain
Your intellect has decided
You are so very brave

if I don’t cry then I won’t make it
I know I promised but I have to break it
Turn away if you can’t take it
It’s way too hard for me to fake it

‘Cause emotion rules -
the tingles in my fingers
chills runs down my spine
tears in my eyes
until my world is blurred and blind

‘Cause emotion rules
our words and our bodies
chill runs down my spine
I sometimes wonder
Is my world just blurred and blind?

Hold Me Closer

Written By: Dolly Rappaport and Mitch Rappaport

Oh mother hold me closer
Make me feel safe and warm
Teach me how to love
Show me comfort with your charms

Help me get through these troubled times
Teach me the path to peace
Instill your loving tenderness
Empower me

Hold me closer
Give me wisdom
Through your loving eyes
Your words are the lyrics on which my song relies

Oh father hold me closer
Make me feel safe and warm
Teach me all that you know
Show me strength in your arms

Help me get through these troubled times
Keep a watchful eye
Instill your knowledge
Hold me when I cry

Hold me closer
Give me shelter
Through your loving eyes
Your words are the lyrics on which my song relies

Teach me
Love me
Guide me
Hold me closer

Oh mother oh father
Keep me close to your soul
Teach me kindness and wisdom
Help to make me whole

Rare rhythm beat up in the air
A blanket fell over my eyes
The sun shined like a candle, if the candle really tries
It's great to be back with you

I don't simply understand
As easy as you do
What seems so easy
Ooh, ooh Dark Blue

Life is hard but you make it so easy
I wanna find out what you do
To make it so clear, that what's far is so near
You just make it so easy

I don't simply understand

As easy as you do
What seems so easy
Ooh, ooh Dark Blue

Judge, my friend
Sentence me to you
Give me life for all my lovin'
It's easy lovin' you

I don't simply understand
As easy as you do
What seems so easy
Ooh, ooh Dark Blue

I've been searching for that one love, my whole life through
I've been searching for that one love, whose heart remains true
Now my searching is over 'cause I found you
And there's no one on this earth
Who can love you like I do

and my heart belongs to you
And there's no one else I'd rather give it to
Oh my heart joyfully sings as I give you this ring
'cause my heart belongs to you

Somehow I knew the day we met
There was something about you I couldn't forget
And I cherish every moment we've had until now
And forever I will love you and this I will vow

That my heart belongs to you
And there's no one else I'd rather give it to
And my heart joyfully sings as I give you this ring
'cause my heart belongs to you

My promise is to honor and respect you
And stand by you all of your days
For better for worse, in good times and bad
And our love will show us the way

‘cause my heart belongs to you
And there's no one else I'd rather give it to
My heart joyfully sings as I give you this ring
'cause my heart belongs to you
