That's What It's All About

Written By: Perry and Katy Miears

That’s What It’s All About
Perry and Katy Miears copyright 10/07

Watchin’ my little boy play, got his first t-ball set today, struttin’ around he’s a big boy now.
Seems so simple to you and me, just knock the ball off the tee, but to him it’s everything.
That’s what it’s all about.

It’s all about bare feet in the soft green grass and ice-cream on a stick
Runnin’ down your fingers before you can take a lick
Slowin’ down on a turn when your little red wagon starts to tip
Havin’ so much fun you’ve just gotta shout
I believe that’s what it’s all about

Not a far fall from the tree, he went to college just like me...graduatin’ with honors, loud and proud.
Says he’s found his other half, I think he’s on the right path, her name’s Faith, I had to laugh
Cuz that’s what it’s all about.

It’s all about lovin’ till you loose yourself, dig in and give it hell
You’d rather fight it out with them than make love to someone else
Flower girls, a long white gown, and a groom in tux and tails
Lots of friends and family gathered ‘round watchin’ them
That’s what it’s all about

I watched them walk through the crowd then I pulled them both aside
Had one last man to man with my son his bride there by his side
Now we’ve all got someplace to be and we’re already ten minutes late.
But there’s nothin’ worth missin’ those beautiful steps along the way.

Like lovin’ your neighbor, more than you love yourself
We’ve all gotta’ share this world, don’t leave it to someone else
Remember what you sew you’ll reap so learn your lessons well
Give your last 20 to help someone out... It comes back around
That’s what it’s all about.

I believe…. It’s everything…. That’s what it’s all about….

A Smile is a Frown (You Turn Upside Down)

Written By: Perry Miears

I wondered this life for so long, lost and undone
Never thought I’d see the light of day, my hope was all gone
When I reached out for someone to help me up off of the ground
I realized the hard way, you only get kicked when you’re down

It’s a hard hard lesson to learn, you can’t cross those bridges you burn
And if there’s one thing I’ve found…a smile is a frown, you turn upside down

Well, I struggled hard to get on my feet, when I take a fall
But to get to where you’re going in this life, sometimes you must crawl
When nothing comes easy, you learn how to hold on to your dreams
You realize those things you took for granted, well their better than they seem

It’s a hard hard lesson to learn, you can’t cross those bridges you burn
And if there’s one thing I’ve found…a smile is a frown, you turn upside down
Upside down, heya, yeehaa


Repeat

Adlib….

Higher Place

Written By: Perry Miears

I see you standin’ in the doorway, warm sunlight kissin’ your soft skin.
You ask me “so how was your day”, but I’m day dreamin’ again…
And then………

I just can’t get enough… holding you, touchin’ you…
That sweet surrender on your face…
Drivin’ me crazy with your longing for, wanting more…
You take me to a higher place… mmhmm a higher place…

I try to pull myself together, you ask “is everything alright”. I think we’re in for nasty weather, I think it’s gonna rain all night… all night…

I just can’t get enough… holding you, touchin’ you…
That sweet surrender on your face…
Drivin’ me crazy with your longing for, wanting more…
You take me to a higher place
(2nd time) I just can’t get enough… holding you, touchin’ you…
That sweet surrender on your face…
Drivin’ me crazy with your longing for, wanting more…
You take me to a higher place… mmhmm a higher place

I see you standin’ in the doorway, warm sunlight kissin’ your soft skin…
And then…….
