The Gift

Written By: W. Peter Randall

The Gift

Honey it’s your birthday and I’m browsin’ Hallmark cards
(oh, oh, oh, oh)
I can taste your kiss in ev’ry thought
Another years beginning with a hold upon my heart
(oh, oh, oh, oh)
Another year with you is all I want
And what I have to give you
Is anything but new

Take my gift of love to another age
God will bless our way as we turn this page
We’ll walk this road of life and we’ll share our nights in love

Left work a little early and I stopped along the way
(oh, oh, oh, oh)
Bought the cherry cheesecake that you like
Wrapped you up a painting, it’s ‘Red Boats’ by Monet
(oh, oh, oh, oh)
I wanna see you sparkle with delight
Then I wanna hold you
Whisper as I do

Take my gift of love to another age
God will bless out way as we turn this page
We’ll walk this road of life and we’ll share our nights in love

Honey it’s your birthday but it’s riches for two
Cause I got the greatest gift, another day with you

Chorus 2:
Take my gift of love it will never fade
All I need is you that will never change
We’ll only turn this page to another age of love
Here on this road of life we’ll share our nights in love
It’s all in love, the gift of love
Whoa-o-o-oa, take this gift of love…

Thank You Starts My Prayers Tonight

Written By: W. Peter Randall

Thank You Starts My Prayers Tonight

Runnin’ circles into squares
This crazy life was solitaire
I was lost on the seven seas
Until your rainbow smiles rescued me
Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow
And thank you starts my prayers tonight

Just like the breathe of God
You’re the wind when I’m becalmed
You have tamed this vagabond
And you’re the rock we’re built upon
Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow
And thank you starts my prayers tonight

If you find the touchstone of love
And it plays in the cadence of your life
You better give thanks to the one up above

You are the morning glory
You are the sunrise awaken me
Your voice is a magic wand
It fills my days with endless calm
Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow
And thank you starts my prayers tonight
Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow
Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow
And thank you starts my prayers tonight

Life Goes By

Written By: W. Peter Randall

Life Goes By

Well I’m leaving this town ain’t gonna hang around
Baby you can stay or baby you can go
They shoulda called it Misery
It’s no place for you and me

We’re lookin’ at a factories closin’ doors
We’re lookin’ at a rundown liquor store
We’re lookin’ at a towns’ last battle cry
And I ain’t standin’ by

Chorus:
Life goes by, baby, life goes by
Oh it’s a bull that you ride
Through a moment in time
You’ll never do what you don’t try as life goes by

I told my daddy we might live
Off the land and off the grid
He said, ‘You’d give all this up son?’
And baby I held my tongue

Life goes by, baby, life goes by
Oh it’s a bull that you ride
Through a moment in time
You’ll never do what you don’t try as life goes by

We know what we’re leavin’ behind
A cloudburst of chances denied
And we can’t see the road that’s up ahead of us
But who knows just what we might find?

Solo:

Life goes by, baby, life goes by
Oh it’s a bull that you ride
Through a moment in time
You’ll never do what you don’t try as life goes by
Don’t let it by… As life goes by, as life goes by, as life goes by
