Lyrics

Lost at Sea

Written By: Pete Haase

Why can’t you be like me?
A little lost at sea
Oh my, surprised by what you find
Like a captain who’s lost his mind

Ooh Ooh Ooh, Ah ahh
Ooh Ooh Ooh, Ah Yeah

Oh, won’t you dream with me?
A toast to what shall be
Alive, before you everything
Just open up your eyes

The waves stay the same

Tomorrow's Yesterday

Written By: Pete Haase

I’ve been missing who you are sweet Otilia
I’ve been missing all the words that you say
But I can’t go on dreaming about love
Once it decides to walk away

And I won’t cry for yesterday and all the pain
I’m just living for today
Tomorrow’s yesterday
All those memories we made
Dreams lost along the way
Tomorrow’s Yesterday

I’ve been searching from afar sweet Otilia
I’ve been counting all the days since you’ve been gone
And all my thoughts and prayers are with you
Even if I am not the one

And I won’t cry for yesterday and all the pain
I’m just living for today
Tomorrow’s yesterday
All those memories we made
Dreams lost along the way
Tomorrow’s Yesterday

I won’t cry for yesterday
I’m just living for today
Tomorrow’s yesterday

Never Wondering Why

Written By: Pete Haase

When I see you smile I feel like I could cry
When I hold you near I feel like I could die
Every moment without you Heaven's waiting
All that's beautiful is love unfolding

Tonight, I feel like I could fly
Like an eagle soaring high
Never wondering why

As the moonlight shines upon this fantasy
As the stars are falling I wish you for me
Every candle I blow out is for you love
Every dream I have can become your dream too

Tonight, I feel like I could fly
Like an eagle soaring high
Never asking why

If I die, before you wake
I pray oh Lord my soul to take
So I’ll be there before you fall
As an angel watching over you

When I see you smile I feel like I could cry
When I hold you near I feel like I could die
Every moment without you Heaven's waiting
All that's beautiful is you unfolding…tonight

Like a Fool

Written By: Pete Haase

Like a fool he had gold in his hands and it slipped away
and like a fool he had an angel in his arms and she flew away, she flew away...

And God said "Boy, what are you doing? Can't you see that she is the one?"

And he said "Lord, I truly do miss her, won't you bring her back from the cold?"

Like a fool...

Like a fool he had dream they'd never part and it faded away

and like fool he had forever in his heart and it broke away, it broke away...

As time moves on and they grow old
He wonders if she still cares
He blames himself for everything
And waits in vain where they met
