Lyrics

True American Hero

Written By: Edmond Ramsey


We lost another one today
I read it in this morning’s paper
It said that he just slipped away
Went on to meet his maker
But he answered his country’s calling
When he was only seventeen
Fought the Nazi’s from his belly
On the bloody beach of Normandy

Chorus:

He was a true American Hero
The last of a dying breed
From Bangor Maine to San Diego
They fought for you they fought for me
Laid down their precious lives for freedom
When threatened by our enemies
I salute those men and women
For their gift of liberty

I remember Daddy telling me
When I was very young
About his sailor days out on the sea
Now to a boy that seemed like loads of fun
But when I grew to be much older
I realized all he had done
Fought in a battle they called Mid Way
Had a friend die in his arms

Repeat Chorus:

Instrumental:

Now Daddy just turned 88
He still stands tall he still stands straight
He loves his country still today
The same as he did yesterday

Repeat CHORUS:

We lost another one today
I read it in this morning’s paper

Only Heaven Knows

Written By: Edmond Ramsey

When I wake up you’re there by my side
You said yes… and I still wonder why
Only heaven knows
But that’s good enough for me

I see a lucky man in the mirror each day
How He won you over… well I still can’t say
Only heaven knows
But that’s good enough for me

I’m just one more man trying hard to believe
I may never understand … what it is you see in me
Then you take me down like a cool evening breeze
It’s like I wake up in the middle of someone else’s dream

I look over…you’re still there by my side
You said yes… I still can’t help but wonder why
Only heaven knows
But that’s good enough for me

Short Instrumental:

I’m just one more man tripping over his dreams
I may never understand … what it is you see in me
But at the end of each day… I drop down to my knees
And thank the Lord up above for listening

I can’t help but smile when I look in your eyes
I don’t why… but it happens all the time
Only heaven knows
But that’s good enough for me

And you are my heart beat
And you make me complete
And I’ll always love you
Heaven knows that’s true
Heaven knows that’s true
Oh…Heaven knows that’s true

Blue Is So Blue

Written By: Edmond Ramsey

Blue is so blue
Lost is so lost
Dark is so dark
Since you’ve been gone

Alone’s so alone
My bed feels so cold
I’m lying awake
Trying to hold on

Chorus:

All the meaning life once had
Has blown away like grains of sand
I’m on the edge and looking back
To the islands in my past
But you’re slipping out of view
Down to where blue is so blue

Truth seems untrue
I haven’t got a clue
Don’t know what to do
Anymore

Turn left or right
Or switch on the light
It won’t ever be like
It was before

Repeat Chorus:

Instrumental

Repeat Chorus:

Blue feels so blue
Lost feels so lost
Dark feels so dark
Since you’ve been gone
Blue feels so blue
