Lyrics

By My Side

Written By: Dominique Mikael


Lyrics and Music by Dominique Mikael © 2006

Verse: Ask me to fly and I'll fly to the moon
Ask me to send you a star
Ask me for light and I'll bring you the sun
Then tell me how happy you are
Ask me to sing and I'll write you a song
I'll sing from the depths of my heart
But ask to explain why I love you so much
And I wont even know where to start

chorus: Cause' my heart seems to drink
Every word that you say
The sun seems to set in your eyes
the wolrd seems to crash when you
walk out the door, but I fall on the floor
thanking God when you return
Safely by my side

verse: Ask me to Dance and I'll sway to the beat
Ask me to lean on your side
Ask me for love and I'll bring you my heart
I'll give you the rest of my life

chorus:Cause' my heart seems to drink
Every word that you say
The sun seems to set in your eyes
the wolrd seems to crash when you
walk out the door, but I fall on the floor
thanking God when you return
Safely by my side

Bridge: The sky's painted gray
oh when you go away
and I wish it would stay
oh forever this way
you're the laughter and sunshine
in all of the rain,
don't know what I would do
if you ever went away
so stay by my side

chorus: 1x

Beautiful View

Written By: Dominique Mikael

Verse: Come lay me down upon the clouds and
look at the cities below
The moon will keep us company
The stars will make a melody
And we'll hum along

Chorus: Oh, what a beautiful view
oh, so high above the ground
oh what a beautiful view
Oh, just listen to the sound...

Verse:Come lay my head upon your chest and
look at the future ahead
my hand will keep yours company
Our hearts will make a melody
And we'll hum along

chorus: Oh, what a beautiful view
oh, so high above the ground
oh what a beautiful view
Oh, just listen to the sound...

Bridge:
(You know that I know
the very depths of your heart
where all of you happiness runs free
abd I know that you know
The very depths of my soul
Because it's there in the deepest part of me)
This part was cut from the song. Now it goes straight to the following:

Oh, the way you move move me
you flow right through me
Oh, the way you hold me tight
It's never felt so right
and all I can do, Is fall back into you.

chorus: Oh, what a beautiful view
oh, so high above the ground
oh what a beautiful view
Oh, just listen to the sound...

Hi

Written By: Dominique Mikael

Verse: Hey, have we met before?
Cause there's something strangly familiar
about your eyes
It's just your smile
It lights my darkened work with fireflies

Chorus: Well I'd try to explain, but I don't get it either
some say love is a myth, but I am a believer
I can't help but to smile, every time you pass me by
I'm at a loss for words and all I can say is, "Hi"

Verse: Hey, have we met before?
Cause there's something strangly familiar
about your face
It takes me back to another time
and once again I'm in a different place

Chorus: Well I'd try to explain, but I don't get it either
some say love is a myth, but I am a believer
I can't help but to smile, every time you pass me by
I'm at a loss for words and all I can say is, "Hi"

Hey, have we met before?
Cause there's something strangly familiar
about your eyes

Goodnight

Written By: Dominique Mikael

Verse: First the wind will start to whisper
As the sun begins to miss her
The flowers bow their heads to say adieu, to you
and the sun gets slightly quieter and the moon gets lightly brighter

Chorus: And now it's time to say goodnight to you

Verse:Then the rosey colors faded while the blues and purples shaded
the sun will kiss the stars to give them light
then the yellow stars will glimmer
while the people's faces shimmer

Chorus: It's time to say good night to say goodnight

Bridge: Ooo

Verse:Now the people begin dreaming
while the crickets start thier singing
their weloming the wakening twilight
and the sun gets slightly quieter and the moon gets slightly brighter

Chorus: It's time to say good night to say goodnight (Repeat)

Now it's time to say goodnight to you my freinds this is how the story ends
