LOVE

Verse 1:
Love is my heart that wants to explode
Wants to explore everything about you
Love is my eyes that look at you
Wanna see you but only you

Love is my smile that seems content to stay
And it’s a glow I can’t hide no
Love is my life with you in it each day
Standing close by my side

Chorus:
Love what is it to you?
Has it run through you
Have you ever felt the sensations of love
Show me that it’s you
Help me carry through
Come on and fill me I need you love

Verse 2:
Love is my limbs aching to hold
Itching to stretch embrace you whole
Love is my energy to give and receive
Giving me life I move more with ease

Love is my smile that seems content to stay
And it’s a glow I can’t hide no
Love is my life with you in it each day
Standing close by my side

½ Chorus:
Oh Love
Show me that it’s you
Help me carry through
Come on and fill me I need you love

Bridge:
Does it look like anything you’ve seen
Does it feel hard soft brittle or lean
When I say this word Love what images does it bring?
Do you feel it’s something beautiful
Is there something you compare it to
Is it something you just can’t ignore
An endless candle warming your soul…..
Can you hold it in both hands?
When you find love, don’t let go

Repeat Choruses:
Love what is it to you?
Has it run through you
Have you ever felt the sensations of love
Show me that it’s you
Help me carry through

Only Love Goes On and On

Interlude
I love the sound
I love the sound
Of the pulse and the heartbeat that is our life [x 2]

VERSE 1
Youth, vibrant beautiful
Life feels so colourful
Live in a time, an age a space
Where innocence can’t be erased
If I would to live to 100 years
I would still laugh through my tears
Falling leaves won’t strip my dreams
Love, would still be here

CHORUS
Life and dreams come in stages
Everyday we turn the pages
Climate change it rearranges
Once was here but now it’s gone

Life and dreams come in stages
Everyday we turn the pages
Climate change it rearranges
Only love goes on and on

Interlude

VERSE 2
Young eyes shine, magical
Life’s domain so whimsical
With hope in their hearts
They make future plans
Everything’s certain within their hands

CHORUS
Life and dreams come in stages
Everyday we turn the pages
Climate change it rearranges
Once was here but now it’s gone

Life and dreams come in stages
Everyday we turn the pages
Climate change it rearranges

Thankyou Star
For the Sun
Let your love
Shine on me

Whether rain,
Hail or storm
I’ll never be lonely

How can I not be grateful that
I have you (babe)
And to the One that brought you to my life’
Sometimes life makes me cry
Feel like it’s too much to take
You never have left my side

Injustices in our world, peoples’ pain
Make my heart break
Woah

Our media loves to portray
You have restored all my faith in love

Life can pry my heart wide
Tries to trample and break it
Yet it is rescued by your loving shield
You witness doubt in my eyes
Wash it clean with your loving
Your light enhances my glow
How can I not wake to face a new day
Without smiling
Your presence wraps me up fills me with joy!

Repeat Chorus
Thankyou Star

FAMILY LOVE

Intro.
Ooh yeah, yeah yeah, Family love

Verse 1:
There were so many days
I wished my luck would change
I thought I was alone
I wouldn’t have learned from the mistakes I’ve made
If I’d spent my life staying at home
But you would always make that phone call
At the perfect moment I was feeling doubts

Transition:
Even though
It was hard for you the day I was leaving
Even though
All this time I knew you’d been grieving

Chorus:
(Family) Love
One thing I thought I could do without
And now I have no doubts
I need my family love, oh
Ooh something that I didn’t value enough
It’s priceless being touched by that Family Love

Verse 2:
I remember those funny days
They bring a smile to my face
I’m never sad for long
Heritage, faith and grace
So much good to embrace
I want to pass it on
A rarity of love you give me like that
Perfect rainbow over Kogarah Bay

Transition:
And even though
I’d hear your voice your tears were falling
And even though
You’d hear my voice your heart’d be calling
‘Love’

Chorus:
(Family Love) Love Love Love Love
One thing I thought I could do without
And now I have no doubts
I need my family love, oh
Ooh something that I didn’t value enough
It’s priceless being touched by that Family Love

Bridge:
You built a foundation that will not break
Withstands everything love hurt joy and hate
Instilled values then that I live by today
I hold my head high to you and I say

Repeat Choruses:
(Family Love)
One thing I thought I could do without
And now I have no doubts
I need my family love, oh
Ooh something that I didn’t value enough
It’s priceless being touched by that Family Love

[Group sing:
I love my family
I need my family love

I cherish my family
I need my family love

I love my family
I need my family love]
