Lyrics

Gorgeous Moon

Written By: Richard Paul Thomas

Gorgeous Moon in the sky
Can you tell I’m unhappy
There’s this pain in my heart
I keep trying to release

Must keep searching for words
To express all my sorrow
In the hopes I may find
Others like me
Then I won’t be alone

(Walk up and point to individuals in the audience for each line)
How am I to know if he will ever truly understand?
How am I to tell if she will try to break my heart?
Can you make me wiser so I won’t repeat the same mistakes?
Wrap your light around me tell me everything’s all right!

Gorgeous Moon in the sky
Your face mirrors my madness
Help me open my heart
Send me the key

As I gaze in your eyes
I see others in sadness
Place this song in their hearts
Guide them to me
Then we won’t be alone (Work my way down into the audience)

(Sing directly to a different person for each line)
How am I to know if you will ever truly understand?
How am I to tell if you will try to break my heart?
Can you make me wiser so I won’t repeat the same mistakes?
Wrap your light around me tell me everything’s all right!

I'm Your Man

Written By: Richard Paul Thomas

Do you hope to hear love’s songs whispered softly all night long?
Then baby, I’m your man!
And if you need a hand to hold, cuddle up when nights are cold?
Then baby, I’m your man!

Do you long to feel the thrill of what it’s like to be fulfilled?
Then baby, I’m your man!
And if your lips wish to be kissed, desperate for excited bliss?
Then baby, I’m your man!

When you’re feeling lost and lonely
You’ll know that I love you only
Let me hold you, I will understand

When you’re happy, joy’s inside you
You can tell your heart to guide you
Right into my arms

If your heart’s filled with desire dreaming to be set on fire?
Then baby, I’m your man!
And if you’re searching for someone to cherish you, make lovin’ fun?
Then baby, I’m your man!

Lovin’ you is all I think of
Since the day we met I dream of
Staying here with you all of my life!

As the seasons change, my heart knows
We will share all our tomorrow’s
I’m in love with you!

Lovin’ you’s my destiny, to be with you eternally!
Oh baby, I’m your man!
Honey, listen to my plea! Darlin’ will you marry me?
‘Cause Baby, I’m your man!
‘Cause Baby, I’m your man!
