EVERYONE I MEET I TRY SO HARD
NOT TO BE THE JUDGE OF WHO OR WHAT THEY ARE
NOT THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN OR WHERE THEY GO TO PRAY
FOR WE ARE ALL THE SAME AT THE END OF THE DAY

CHORUS
I WISH I COULD SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD
WHERE EVERYTHING IS INNOCENT AND EVERYTHING IS FAIR
I WISH I COULD SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD
WHERE EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL AND LOVE IS EVERYWHERE

[IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO WE ARE IT’S ABOUT WHO WE CAN BE]
IF WE OPEN UP OUR HEARTS AND WE SET EACH OTHER FREE
WHEN YOU HAVE CHILDREN OF YOUR OWN THEY’LL BE LOOKING UP AT YOU
SO BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU TEACH FOR SOMEDAY THEY’LL TEACH IT TO

CHORUS
I WISH WE COULD SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD
WHERE EVERYTHING IS INNOCENT AND EVERYTHING IS FAIR
I WISH WE COULD SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD
WHERE EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL AND LOVE IS EVERYWHERE
Mid 8
[I KNOW I’M NOT PERFECT
BUT I TRY ‘CAUSE LOVE IS WORTH IT]

CHORUS
I WISH WE COULD SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD
WHERE EVERYTHING IS INNOCENT AND EVERYTHING IS FAIR
I WISH WE COULD SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD
WHERE EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL AND LOVE IS EVERYWHERE

BODY LANGUAGE

Written By: JUSTIN MC GURK

Body language
[written and sang by Justin mc gurk]

v1
Well she mite of been from Tokyo
well I dont care and hell I don’t know
She couldn’t understand a word I said
but she knew fine well just what I meant
Call it love at first sight could this be my lucky night

Chorus
We all use body language what exactly are you trying to say
We all use body language it’s a game we all wanna play
V2
She caught me looking her up and down
She knew id one thing on my mind
Showing her all of the signs
You’d better read between the lines
A pretty face among the crowd
So I just picked her out
chorus
We all use body language what exactly are you trying to say
We all use body language it’s a game we all wanna play
We all use body language what exactly are you trying to say
We all use body language it’s a game we all wanna play
mid 8
actions speak louder in this game of were playin
can you hear what our bodies are sayin
v3
I asked her if I talked to fast
She just smiled and grabbed my ass
To some that mite be kinda rude
But then I knew she understood
Took hands and started walkin
We let our bodies do the talkin
Chorus
We all use body language what exactly are you trying to say
We all use body language it’s a game we all wanna play
We all use body language what exactly are you trying to say
We all use body language it’s a game we all wanna play

I Believe

Written By: JUSTIN MC GURK

I Believe [by Justin mc gurk]

The life you’ve been given is a beautiful thing
More precious than anything you could ever dream
You’d better open your eyes an just believe

Did you ever listen to your own heartbeat
Isn’t it amazing what you can feel
I don’t question it I believe
Bridge;
Just take that leap of faith to what you want
And some day it will all be yours
And when it happens you will know it’s all because you believe

It’s a force so strong like nothing ive known
I just opened my eyes and I was shown
What are you waiting for just believe

Life’s a dance so take it slow savour each moment
And you will know its so easy will know
It’s so easy when you believe
Bridge

Just take that leap of faith to what you want
And some day it will all be yours
And when it happens you will know it’s all because you believe
Gtr solo
Why were here its no mystery why can’t you understand
Where do I fit in to the scheme of things into this master plan…

It’s a force so strong like nothing ive known
I just opened my eyes and I was shown
What are you waiting for just believe
I believe ,I believe whoa I believe I believe yes I believe.

The Other Side

Written By: kris bergsnes/Justin McGurk/brian Maher

The Other Side
[Kris bergsnes/Justin McGurk/Brian Maher]
V1
It seemed like every day I was standing by a river
And she’s over there just waiting for me
What I wouldn’t give just to be with her
She might as well be a star a million miles out of reach
chorus
She’s so far away, so far away, She’s so far away
Why does love have to be on thee other side
Am I the only one who just cant seem to get it right..
I wanna feel it I wanna believe it
but I just can’t see why love is on thee other side
V2
It’s hard to build a bridge when you’re all by yourself
But that don’t mean that I aint gonna try
Times like these a man could use a little help
from that pretty little angel on thee other side
chorus
She’s so far away, so far away, She’s so far away
Why does love have to be on thee other side
Am I the only one who just cant seem to get it right..
I wanna feel it I wanna believe it
but I just can’t see why love is on thee other side

some times it’s a river some times it’s a road
[it’s a long long road]
There’s always something in my way whenever I get close…
Why does love have to be on thee other side
Am I the only one who just cant seem to get it right..
I wanna feel it I wanna believe it
but I just can’t see why love is on thee other side

its on the other side, I'm on thee other side on thee other side
I’m coming to get you on thee other side.
