Lyrics

Eyes of Azure

Written By: Gordon Newton

As a young man while walking
one night by the sea
I saw a sweet angel
beckon to me
And under the moonlight
on a beach wild and free
a pretty young mermaid
slipped out of the sea

Still wrapped in the ocean
like a wave on the sand
she glided straight to me
and gave me her hand
she gently caressed me
like a soft ocean breeze
and sent my soul sailing
across the blue seas

My pretty young mermaid
from beneath the blue
her skin soft and tender
eyes of azure
with a touch so gentle
like a ripple to shore
that young ocean beauty
owns my heart and my soul

Our sweet days together
so quickly passed
each night spent embracing
and sharing our hearts
but then she slipped from me
beneath the white foam
God recalled his angel
to a deeper blue home

And now in the twilight
near the end of my years
I wait near the ocean
waves crying my tears
I know God will send me
from beneath the white foam
my guiding young angel
to lead me on home

My pretty young mermaid
from beneath the blue
her skin soft and tender
eyes of azure
with a touch so gentle
like a ripple to shore
that young ocean beauty
owns my heart and my soul

My pretty young mermaid
from beneath the blue
her skin soft and tender
eyes of azure
and under the moonlight
on a beach wild and free
an old man and his mermaid
slipped into the sea.

Let Angels Share Your Dreams

Written By: Gordon Newton

VERSE 1
HOLD YOUR TEDDY CLOSE AND TIGHT
HE’LL KEEP YOU WARM AND SAFE TONIGHT
HE’LL COUNT YOUR FINGERS, COUNT YOUR TOES
HELP YOUR LITTLE EYELIDS CLOSE
HE’LL LET YOU KNOW THAT I AM NEAR
WHISPER SOFTLY IN YOUR EAR
HUSH MY DARLING DO NOT CRY
LISTEN TO MY LULLABY

CHORUS
CLOSE YOUR EYES AND HEAR THE ANGELS SING
CLOSE YOUR EYES AND HEAR THEM SING THEIR HYMNS
CLOSE YOUR EYES AS THEY WRAP YOU IN THEIR WINGS
CARRY YOU WHERE ANGELS SHARE YOUR DREAMS

VERSE 2
DRIFT TO WHERE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
HOLD MY HAND I’LL FLY WITH YOU
SEE BUTTERFLIES WITH PRETTY WINGS
CHASE BALLOONS ON SILVER STRINGS
WHERE ANGELS VOICES SWEET AND SOFT
LIFT YOUR CARES ON WINGS ALOFT
SLEEP MY SWEETHEART DO NOT CRY
LISTEN TO THEIR LULLABY

CHORUS

BRIDGE
DREAM YOUR DREAMS 'TIL MORNING COMES
ALL IS WELL MY LITTLE ONE
SAFE AND SNUG IN TEDDY’S ARMS
SLEEP AND LET THE ANGELS SHARE YOUR DREAMS
