SONNY BOY MICK

“We all live for those magic moments in life when everything just seems to go right, like a pro athlete who joins the big leagues and wins the cup in his first visit to the finals. Some people spend their whole careers trying to duplicate that success and feeling, they never stop to enjoy the small moments, never savouring them -- waiting for moments of holding the “cup” until later in their career only to find sometimes it never happens at all, usually taking those moments for granted. We need to focus on the small magic moments that happen in our everyday life, be it on the big stage or the small one. Doing it because of what started us out as kids along that path - the love of that magic moment! We never really know how or why special things come along, but when they do, you can’t plan them, they just seem to happen. So don’t let them pass you by - enjoy the ride!”

            “Shine up those dancing shoes”   -- Sonny Boy Mick

Lyrics

today

Written By: S. MCPHAIL

. TODAY
(words and music - s. .McPhail)

How many times you come around
only see you turn around
turn around and walk away from me
If I could only make you stay
I’m surely not that brave
to really show you how I feel

And yeah, I’ve been lonesome once before
Yeah, I hear you knockin at my door
and yeah , you know I want you more and more

today, is not the day
for you to lose faith in me
now I don’t have the answer
I know this much is true
nothing is faded
cause I still believe in you today.

Thinking back to the nights
when I wished I would hold you tight
tiL the morning comes again
Now I walk in the room where I come from
Feelin like a man who don’t belong
sorry don’t cut it and that’s the way

And yeah, I’ve been lonesome once before
Yeah, I hear you knockin at my door
and yeah, you know I want you more and more

today, is not the day
for you to lose faith in me
now I don’t have the answer,
I know this much is true
nothing is faded
Cause I still believe in you today

How many times you let me down
only see you turn around
turn around and walk away from me

Sweet L'il Daisy

BREATHE - SONNY BOY MICK

I've never known a love at first sight
never known a feelin so right
there was a time , a time I thought i knew
but had i known, I'd of waited for you

chorus
breathe down your love , down on me

colors fade, like the setting sun , in your eyes, the fire's still warm
deep inside, deep inside your soul , hold me close, don't ever let go

chorus
breathe down your love, down on me

when it's all, it's all been said and done, there's those who've lost, and those who've won
i'd give it all just to hold you once, to know i've held , held my one true love

chorus
breathe down your love, down on me

i've been walkin in these shoes of mine, soul's worn thin from all the miles of travel, and it took some time to realize that sacrifice is not a price but heaven's gift of knowledge,
from up above now, breathe down love on me, down on me

repeat 1st verse
