Lyrics

Every Now and Then

Written By: Greg Symons

Every now and then someone comes along
That makes you wonder where they have been,
Every now and then someone comes along
That makes you fall in love once again.

You don’t know why it happens,
You don’t know when or where,
Love is like a butterfly
Floating in the air.

Every now and then someone comes along
That’s more than just a friend,
Every now and then someone comes along
That makes you wish the world would never end.

You don’t know why it happens,
There is nothing you can do,
Love is like a shooting star
Racing past the moon.

It’s all very plain to see
Looking back in time
You and I were meant to be
From the very first moment that I saw you
Out of the corner of my eye.
Standing alone at the party
Your smile flashing like a magic sign.

I just had to meet you
I had to hold your hand
We were strangers
Traveling together
In a distant land.

Every now and then someone comes along
That makes you wonder where they have been,
Every now and then someone comes along
That makes you fall in love once again.

You don’t know why it happens,
You don’t know when or where,
Love is like a butterfly
Floating in the air.

You don’t know why it happens,
There is nothing you can do,
Love is like a shooting star
Racing past the moon.

Love is a very complicated thing
It’s not easy to explain
You never know
When lightning will strike
In the middle of the rain.
When the sky is at its darkest hour
Suddenly there’s a little spark
And a fire starts burning in your heart

You find a shining light
A bright star in the night
Love reaches out and touches you
In the nick of time.

Every now and then someone comes along
That makes you wonder where they have been,
Every now and then someone comes along
That makes you fall in love once again.

You don’t know why it happens,
You don’t know when or where,
Love is like a butterfly
Floating in the air.

You don’t know why it happens,
There is nothing you can do,
Love is like a shooting star
Racing past the moon.

Every now and then there is love.

Reason For The Season

Written By: Greg Symons

There is a reason for the lights that glow
On the evergreen trees,
There is a reason for the stars that shine
On a cold winter’s eve;
There is a reason for the bells that ring
A reason for the choirs that sing,
And a reason for the gifts we bring
On early Christmas morn.

The reason for this season,
Is that a child was born
A long time ago,
In a manger far away
And that’s the only reason I know.

I am sure you have heard the story
Of a stable in Bethlehem,
And the birth of a king
Near the city of Jerusalem,
Of the heralding of the angels
And the journey of three wise men,
The story of Jesus, Mary and Joseph
The Gift of God to man.

The reason for this season,
Is that a child was born
A long time ago,
In a manger far away.
And that’s the only reason I know.

Let us join in praising him
And all the joy he brings,
Raise our voices in carolling
And spread the message of the Prince of Peace
Throughout the coming year,

The reason for this season,
Is that a child was born
A long time ago,
In a manger far away.
And that’s the only reason I know.
