Lyrics

How Lucky We Are

Written By: Mathias Isassi

i need a reason, i need a reason to be. i need protection, but don't give me sympathy. i need to find me a place where i can hide a while - away from the sadness that breeds in the city streets. i've looked under rugs and over the roof tops. i've gutted the gutters and lifted every rock. if you've got a light why don't you shine it on over to me - help me to find just what i'm searching to be.
high in the heavens we sit on the tail of a star, just dreaming away and wondering how lucky we are. is there anyone out there sitting high on a star, dreaming little dreams and wondering how lucky they are?
i found my reason, i've got a reason to be. she's my protection, she sets me free. i've got a place and i don't need to hide - away from the sadness and into the light of her smile. the earth is my rug the sky is my rooftop. i need no gutters - i am a rock. i've got my light and i'm gonna let it shine, let it shine. shine like the stars dancing high in the night.
high in the heavens we sit on the tail of a star - dreaming away and wondering how lucky we are. is there anyone out there sitting high on a star? come lets dream away and wonder how lucky we are.

For the Way I Feel For You ( Como Yo Siento Por Ti)

Written By: Mathias Isassi

She's two-hundred-some miles away, but i can see her in just half a blink; and if i let my mind stray she's right there waiting for me.
She's on my mind each day and night, but still i wonder...'does she think of me?'...she's in my words and on my mind, oh how i wish we could be.
People ask me why i do what i do.
I say, 'i really don't know!'.
It's for the way i fell for you baby, and i've gotta let you know.
Oh i've gotta let you know!

Tears

Written By: Mathias Isassi

things are beginning to look a little better now that you don't cloud my mind. i'm looking for the bright side, but i can't find the light.
you can take the stories. you can take the memories and the love, but you can't take my tears.
i won't cry my dear.

it's beginning to look a little better now that you aren't on my mind. i'm still looking for the bright side, but everything is dark as night.
take the stories, take the memories, take my love, but you can't take my tears.
take the stories, take the memories, take my love, but you can't take my tears.

These tears are mine
these tears are mine
these tears are mine
(repeat)
