Best Things

Written By: Music:Michel van er Zanden Lyrics: Nannette Groenendal

Best things

Friends say that I’m crazy
Friends say that I’ll get hurt
But that’s not the way I see it
It’s like choosing only for desert

So what if this love only lasted a moment
And then it slipped right through my hands
That’s what made it precious
That’s what made it a true romance

The best things in life
Are never meant to last
There’s no need to be sad
If you don’t dwell in the past

This world is built on too much sense
There’s no room left for passion
Being settled from cradle to grave
Seems to be everyone’s obsession

So I’d rather be crazy
I don’t mind getting hurt
I really need to be able to breathe
And always have room for desert

The best things in life
Are never meant to last
There’s no need to be sad
If you don’t dwell in the past

FALLING

Ain’t got stardust in my eyes
And my feet are planted on the ground
But my head feels strangely light
I keep seeing rainbows all around

Something weird is going on
Perfect strangers stop and smile at me
I keep calling out your name
And your face is ev’rywhere to see…

Slowly losing all control…giving up my heart and soul…to you….
(CHORUS)
Falling – without the slightest trace of vertigo
Falling – this must be the most perfect way to go
Falling headlong through the clouds above
Falling into love

I am tumbling to my fate
Seems like nothing’s gonna break my fall
See my life now flying by
Love is taking now a curtain call

Slowly losing all control…giving up my heart and soul…to you….
(CHORUS x 2)
Falling – without the slightest trace of vertigo
Falling – this must be the most perfect way to go
Falling headlong through the clouds above
Falling into love

Tell Me

Written By: Bruce Smith

Lyrics: Bruce R. F. Smith ©2007

TELL ME

I’ve heard it all
So many times
It’s totally boring
We’ve been right there
We’ve done our thing
We’ve had our share – point scoring

What are we trying to prove?
We’re stuck in a hopeless groove
Just going round and round

Spin me a different line
Gimme a hopeful sign
That we ain’t heartbreak bound…

Tell me I’ve been mistaken (Chorus)
That pigs are flying and truth's lying in wait
Tell me my heart ain’t breaking
Sell me an illusion softly
Tell me we’ll be together
We’ll be in clover – that it ain’t over
Tell me you’ll stay forever
Tell white lies…to me…
We were always simply meant to be….

It ain’t goodbye
Or just farewell
Cuz time we are postponing
Let’s try again
Right from the start
Let’s try to keep love going

You and me – we came this far
Let’s jump right off this falling star
And land upon our shaky feet

We can make it if we try
Even if we’re living out a lie
We’ll be lovers till we die
Tell me now it’s not delusion…. (Repeat chorus)
