Lyrics

This is your song

Written By: Gerben Bootsma

This is your song

I had shivers when I first saw you and all I could do was stare
I had affairs without ever saying a word to you, I didn’t dare

And I heard that you had been dating and you gave a rose away
I was chained and I was aching I just wanted to be there that day

So, this is your song… this is your song
If you hear this, it’s all about you
I was longing… but I felt so blue
If you fell for me… I would be true

This is your song…

Few years later… I was telling… a friend of ours “how about you”
She was telling me… you were saying… that the man of your life was still due

You were acting one night… and we both became tight…
On the beach we saw the water turn blue…
And you wanted a song… you could sing to alone… Well baby… this song’s for you

So, this is your song… this is your song!
You can feel with me most of the time…
And your smile really makes me feel fine…
You’re a wonderful girlfriend of mine! This is your song…

Your love’s never ending At least that’s what I like to think
Your faith is standing You’re always there… and there… and there… and there….

That’s why this is your song… this is your song!
We went living together our way…
And we got ourselves something to say…
Now we finally married today!

Still, this is your song… still this is your song… yes still this is your song….

I'm on my way

Written By: Gerben Bootsma

I’m on my way

I’m driving south… On my left is the Frisco bay
Just watching out… Just started out this way
And I see I’m not the only Could I be the only lonely
I have gotten to this beach here on my own…

Just watching whales… And some birds every side of the way
Sand to my heels It feels like I could stay
But you’re on that other side… of that ocean, and the notion
That you’re in my arms again heats up my heart…

I’m on my way I’m on my way and I said I never had plans here to stay…
I’m on my way
Not here to stay Although I feel my heart beat when I’m in this country today…
I’m on my way

SOLO

When work is done Just some days and we take away
I’m moving on While I’m wrapping up here for the day
What a life that takes me here What a wonder brings you near
We will get here to this place all on our own…

Baby run… it’s not the ocean… that will keep us from being apart
Baby run… we feel the notion that we’ll… make another start…
Another start… (2X)

I’m on my way I’m on my way and I said I never had plans here to stay…
I’m on my way
Not here to stay Although I feel my heart beat when I’m in this country today…
I’m on my way

On my way….ay….on my way…. } 2X
I’m on my way- on my way-on my way- on my way!

I’m on my way!

My Love

My Love

My love… I met you and let my heart just guide me… You came beside me… My love…

My love… In movies, in songs, on maps have I found you…
Your islands I’m bound to…. My love…

I walked with you right beside me
My dreams of you became
I walked with you on Kauai to Hawaiian smiles when you said “I do”

My love… Connected to bond and staying together… And in Dutch weather My love…

SOLO Ukulele

I walked with you right beside me My dreams of you became true
I walked with you on Kauai to Hawaiian smiles when you said “I do”

My loves… Will soon be together saying “Aloha”… Ever and ever…. My love…

Like Like Highway

Written By: Gerben Bootsma

Like Like Highway

(well I’m) Moving allright… When I’m driving in sight… of the Like Like Highway

When I drive up to a highway
When I go out for a ride
When I see all of us out there, just standing in line…

Some of them I won’t get used to
Some of them want to get fines
Some of them just keep abusing, abusing my time…

When I see this all around me… I (just) leave common sense behind me

All the time
When I think of something better I feel fine
I got a highway in my mind That I’ll assign
If I’m in trouble on the road then I am out there….

(and then I’m doing) Allright…. I got aloha in my body Not some fight
Until this notion get’s me to another byway…

(well I’m) Moving allright… When I’m driving in sight… of the Like Like Highway (on the Like Like Higway)

I can tell you I am part of this
I’m not only driving in this traffic…
But I also like to reminisce, to get out of this hectics…

(But) talking about traffic is a birthday issue
If you got solutions let the force be with you
I can recommend you: find a contest! Then you shake the money...

When I see this all around me… I (just) leave common sense behind me

All the time
When I think of something better I feel fine
I got a highway in my mind That I’ll assign
If I’m in trouble on the road then I am out there….

(and then I’m doing) Allright…. I got aloha in my body Not some fight
Until this notion get’s me to another byway…

(and I’m) Moving allright… When I’m driving in sight… of the Like Like Highway

(It's either) mindset shift or a change of habit... (4 X)

Mindset shift or a change of habit/ I'm on the Like Like Highway...

Never lost again

Written By: Gerben Bootsma

Never lost again

I’m running through the woods, it's not my neighbourhood, the stars help-me-out…
I gotta Monkey on my back not feeling high-tech tonight…

When I’m out of this dream, no alarm so it seams, I gotta run for work…
Thank God PTA’s make my travelling days so bright...

I got a personal PA , have a feeling underway, it might help me out..
Gotta go radio, check the bus or the tram no doubt…

When I’m lost and I feel so sad I gotta push on another app…

Never lost again!
When I go from home with the smartest phone
Lost again! Not me on my own...

(I’ll never be) Lost again!
Out of the ever unknown, everybody is coming home
Lost again! Not me on my own...

Didn’t I did’nt I, didn’t I feel alone... yeah..
Didn’t I did’nt I, didn’t I feel alone
I’ll never be lost again... No, I'll never be lost again...

I'm feeling lucky with my tool, and it’s looking pretty cool, all the time-online…
If I gotta recommend you a personal friend, it’s mine…

I got an ace in the race and I got a happy face, since I understand
I got the world in my hand on the way to the promised land

When I’m lost and I feel so sad I gotta push on another app…

Never lost again!
When I go from home with the smartest phone
Lost again! Not me on my own...

(I’ll never be) Lost again!
Out of the ever unknown, everybody is coming home
Lost again! Not me on my own...

Didn’t I did’nt I, didn’t I feel alone... yeah..
Didn’t I did’nt I, didn’t I feel alone
I’ll never be lost again...

BREAK:
I'm on the same side.. but I can't get with it, on the same side 4X

I'll never be lost again!
When I go from home with the smartest phone
Lost again! Not me on my own...

(I’ll never be) Lost again!
Out of the ever unknown, everybody is coming home
Lost again! Not me on my own...

I'll never be lost again!
When I go from home with the smartest phone
Lost again! Not me on my own...

(I’ll never be) Lost again!
Out of the ever unknown, everybody is coming home
Lost again! Not me on my own...

I'll never be lost again...
