Souls Of Love

music & lyrics by, Jeannie Willets       

You're the stars that light the dark sky,

You're the sun that keeps me warm,

You're the wind that helps my wings fly,

You're the calm before the storm

You're the one my heart calls out for,

You're one thing I can believe,

You're the one I couldn't want more,

You're the one I need

You're out of a dream, you're out of another place,

You're one of a kind I don't think I could replace

And that's why . . .

You're the one I keep coming back to

After I've seen all the rest,

One look at you and I know I have to

Maybe that's cause you're the best . . . you're the best.

My heart's like an open book if you just look in my eyes

You'd see so many things that words just could not describe . . .

Souls of love have come together

Like two stars that light the sky

Souls of love live on forever

Like the bond of you and I . . . of you and I.

Setting Sun

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

Every time I wait, thinkin' you might call,

You never do

Every time I wish you're gonna change it all,

It never comes true

Guess I'm hopin' for something that will never be,

Oh, woe is me, what else is new?

Guess I'm dreamin' of someday that will never come,

And with the setting sun, I'm losing you

'Cause every time I think you're gonna show you care,

You show me you don't, mmm-hmm

And when I could swear I'm gonna find you there,

It turns out I won't, w'oh no

Guess I'm hopin' for something that will never be,

Oh, woe is me, what can I do?

Guess I'm dreamin' of someday that will never come,

And with the setting sun, I am. . . losing you. . . losing you.

Heart On A String

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

It's like nothing that I felt before,

All this warmth inside me now,

I just keep loving you more and more,

Now there isn't any doubt

You've got my heart on a string,

I'll go wherever you lead me,

You're reelin' my love in, 'cause

You've got my heart, you've got my heart on a string

A stronger connection I have never known,

You're so often in my thoughts,

It's like this feeling won't let me go,

'Guess it must be all because. . .

You've got my heart on a string,

Where you go, I will follow,

You're reelin' my love in, 'cause

You've got my heart, you've got my heart on a string, on a string,

You've got my heart on a string,

Pulling my love to you,

You've got my heart on a string, yeah,

Pulling my love to you---hoo-hoo-hoo,

You've got my heart on a string. . . yeah.

Pretty Bird Outside My Window

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

Pretty bird outside my window,

Pretty bird, you sing so sweetly without a care

Pretty bird outside my window,

You just fly above the clouds that you find out there

You just soar along your way,

You don't let a gloomy day cloud your mind, pretty bird.

Pretty kitty on my pillow,

Pretty kitty, you stretch out and enjoy your day

Pretty kitty on my pillow,

Purrs so gently as she sends all her love my way

You just let love lead the way,

You don't let a word they say change your mind . . .

You just love.

Nature reminds us constantly

How we can live in harmony.

Pretty bird outside my window,

You just rise above the clouds that you find out there,

You just soar along your way, yeah

You don't let a gloomy day change your life, pretty bird.

Pretty bird . . . (3X)

Virginia Rain

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

Listening to Virginia rain,

Don't think I'll ever feel the same,

Since the first time I heard it fall,

I've fallen for Virginia rain.

It was a warm September night,

Under a cloudy, moon-lit sky,

Then slow and light, the rain began,

Then pouring hard, down it came

Sounds like it's never gonna stop,

Like it might go on all night long,

Another wonder sent by God

Has led me to this song.

Need to return from where I came,

Don't know when I'll be back again,

But this I always will recall

How I've fallen for Virginia rain

Listening to Virginia rain,

Don't think I'll ever be the same,

Since the first time I heard it fall,

I've fallen for Virginia rain.

Ever since I heard it fall,

I've fallen for Virginia rain.

Old Whistling Moon

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

Chorus: Old whistling moon, old whistling moon,

           Wonderin' how you stay so cool

           And found a carefree tune,

           Old whistling moon.

Some say all there is ahead for us all is doom,

And, on this planet, one could think that's true, ooo-hoo,

Anyone could look around and say the same thing, too,

But you look like you play a different tune

~~~(Chorus)~~~

Earth is such a crazy place, so wild and so confused,

If you look down, you will see, old whistling moon,

But maybe seeing just what's wrong is not the thing to do,

Maybe we should take a tip from you, ooo-hoo-hoo

~~~(Chorus)~~~

. . . Old whistling moon.

Old whistling moon . . . (3X)

Longing

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

As I gaze up at the stars,

How I wonder where you are,

As I lay me down to sleep,

I pray my soul to keep

And I long for one more night

That I could look into your eyes,

And I long for one more time

That I could give this love of mine,

Heart to heart and soul to soul,

Your love is what makes me whole,

So how can I resist your smile

Or turn from my desire?

So I long for one more night that I could hold you tight,

And I long for one more time to have you in my life, in my life.

So I long for one more night that I could look into your eyes,

And I long for one more time to give you my love,

One more night that I could hold you tight,

I long for one more time to have you in my life, in my life.

You Made Me Believe

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

The way you sent my heart soaring,

The way you seemed to adore me,

And all the things you've done for me

Made me believe this was love.,

I thought I saw it in your eyes,

Could I have really been so unwise?

To have mistaken truth for lies,

Believ'in' that this was love

If you never cared, why did you lead me on

'N made me believe you did?

Do you think it's fair

To make me love so strong, just to deny it?

Maybe you've got your reasons

For your mystery and your teasin'

All I know is you had me believin'

What you felt for me was love.

If you never cared, why did you lead me on

'N made me believe that you did?

Do you think it's fair

To make me love you so long

Just to deny it?

Maybe you've got your reasons

For all your mystery and your teasin'

All I know is you sure had me believin'

What you felt for me was love,

You made me believe this was love.

By Now

music & lyrics,  Jeannie Willets

Don't you know by now

How I feel about you?

Don't you know by now?

How could you think that I

Wouldn't care about you?

Don't you know by now?

You should know by now,

You should know by now,

All of the things you mean to me

And all the dreams you are . . .

Don't you know by now

How I won't live without you?

Don't you know by now?

How could you think that I

Would ever leave now that I found you?

Don't you know by now?

You should know by now,

You should know by now,

You should know by now.

Here, In Stanley

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

Wondering what I did to get so lucky,

How all these blessings came,

All I know is I want the same for all of those

Who give me so much everyday

May you find peace, the peace of a countryside,

May your life flow easy like the river that runs by

May your heart feel the love and always be open wide,

The way I feel, here, in Stanley . . . all your life,

I wish that for you, for all your life.

Seeing how we all have our own journeys

In this thing we call "life",

I only hope that all I've done has helped those

Whose love I've received, along the way . . .

May you find peace, the peace of a countryside,

May your life flow easy like the river that runs by,

May your heart feel the love and always stay open wide,

The way I feel, here, in Stanley . . . all your life

I've been searching and searching for things

I thought I was missing,

But, now that I'm here,

I can see they've always been inside me

May you find peace, the peace of a countryside,

May your life flow easy like the river that runs by,

May your heart feel the love and remain open wide,

The way I feel, here, in Stanley . . . all your life,

I wish that for you, for all your life.

 I Want To Be Right This Time

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

I hope you are the one,

I'm so afraid you won't be and I'll be lonely again,

I hope this time I've won

The heart I've always wanted instead of losing my own,

I think the time has come,

When I look in your eyes, I'd say the time has come,

I only know it feels so right

Chorus: And I want to be right this time,

            I want to be right this time about love,

            With you, everything seems so right,

            So I want to be right this time about love

So I hope we are a pair,

'Cause there's so much to love about you

And so much we could share,

And I hope you really care,

As I do more and more each day

And whenever you're near

It seems the time has come

And I hope that it's true, I feel the time is here,

If the one for me is you.

~~~(Chorus)~~~

About love, about love . . .

Wanna be right . . . about love

Wanna be right this time about love,

Yes, I wanna be right this time about love,

With you, everything seems so right, oh yeah

So I wanna be right this time about love

About love, about love . . .

This time, this time,  I wanna be right

About love, about love

Ooo, I want to be right this time

About love, about love

About love . . . I wanna be right

This time.

You Are the Light

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

You say you’re down now, that you’re feeling blue,
You want to change that but you don’t know what to do, Once you flew so high, now you’re on the ground,
You want to find that route back up above the clouds,

Well, a candle was lit so very long ago,

The fire's burning still, if you want it so, for . . .

Chorus:

You are the light that shines in the darkest night,
You are the light that shines, glowing from deep inside you,

As bright as you want to.

Your faith is fading, you say it don’t look good,
But you would turn that frown upside down if you could,

Once you stood so tall you couldn’t see your feet,
You vowed you’d never let your dreams accept defeat,

Well, a candle was lit so very long ago,
The fire's burning still, if you want it so

(Chorus)

Bridge :  You know the darkness

            Can't make you feel afraid anymore, 'cause . . .

(Chorus)

 . . .You are the light that shines, you are the light that shines.

You Won't Let Go Of My Heart

music & lyrics by,  Jeannie Willets

I wanna give my love away
But you won't let go of my heart,
I wanna turn another page
But you won't let go of my heart
It's not your fault, you're not to blame,
How could you know I'd feel this way?
Some love will die and some remains,
With every road, there's a risk we take
There is no doubt, I should move on
But you won't let go of my heart,
I wish desires could just be gone
But you won't let go of my heart
Oh, it's not your fault, you're not to blame,
Nobody knows when it will rain,
I guess I'll always feel the same,
That's how it's been ever since you came
I tried to love somebody new
But you won't let go of my heart,
My love is yours, oh, I guess it's true
'Cause you won't let go of my heart . . .
No, you won't let go of my heart.
