In my hands, I had all I'd ever need
But then I became weak
Blinded by lust and greed
In my hands, on top of the highest peak
Then it came crashing down
And now I can not speak

I once had you in my hands
But I just could not hold on
Wanted only to hold on
But I can't because you're gone

It's been so long since I last saw you
Girl you wrote that you forgave me
But there is no forgetting
They say time heals all wounds
But this wound is deep and hurting
And I never will stop yearning
For the love that I once had
In my hands, in my hands

In my hands, the whole world was mine to take
But after all of the mistakes
All I've now's an empty plate
In my hands, countless opportunities
Seemed so easy, yet so hard
Beyond my abilities

In my hands, in my hands

One time I had, my one true love
Here in my hands, in my hands

In My Hands

This is now the way that things must be
Taking into account all you wrote to me
In haste it seems I struck a wrong chord
With reckless words that pierced you like a sword

And I know I can't go back

But you're the one I'll always adore
Even though I won't see you anymore
Having known you has been a blessing
Not so much for you I'm guessing
I know that I must move on
Even with all these restraints
To be honest girl, I've no complaints

When I needed a friend you were there
So incredible, a breath of fresh air
Girl you were the answer to my prayers
But it was just all musical chairs

It ended so abruptly

Forever it's you I'll adore
Even though I won't see you anymore
Having known you has been a blessing
Not so much for you I'm guessing
I know that I must move on
Even with all these restraints
To be honest girl, I've no complaints

Let me express my gratitude
Could use a little latitude
Though I've fallen into oblivion
I'll always look up to you

Girl you're the one I'll always adore
Even though I won't see you anymore
Having known you has been a blessing
Not so much for you I'm guessing
I know that I must move on
Even with all these restraints
To be honest girl, to be quite honest
I've no complaints
I've no complaints

No Complaints

You take with grace what God gives you
And you never question why
You're a sign of perseverance
There's no mountain that's to high
You're forever optimistic
You bow only to one King
And you're glass is always half full
Being around you is uplifting

You take me to the stars
And for you I'd go the whole nine yards

You give my heart peace
An everlasting peace
Wishing you were here
To see my joyful tears
You give my heart peace

You're a one of a kind treasure
You're a sight that must be seen
And you showed so much compassion
To this imperfect human being
To say that you are amazing
Would be to misunderstate
And you taught me not to worry
Good things come to those who wait

You take me to the stars
And for you I'd go the whole nine yards

You give my heart peace
An everlasting peace
Wishing that were here
To see my joyful tears
You give my heart peace
An everlasting peace
Wishing that you were here
To see my joyful tears

You're the one I love
You're the one I need
Girl you're the one
You give my heart peace

You're the one I love
You're the one I need
You're the one girl for me
You give my heart peace

Youre'the one I love
You're the one I need
Girl you're the one
You give my heart peace

You're the one I love
You're the one I need
You're the one girl for me

You give my heart peace
An everlasting peace
Wishing that you were here
To see my joyful tears

Always traveling at the speed
of light
Isn't getting me anywhere fast
Maybe it's time I took a break from it all
And finally be free at last

I wish you all of the best in your life
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun always smile upon your face
I hope that your skies that they never turn black

This road is bound to get smoother soon
For so long it seems like I have been cursed
They say that there is always tomorrow
I'm tired of hearing that same old damn verse
Wondering if my ship will ever come in
Seems like I'm always howling at the moon
So I'll just keep hanging on by this thread
Cause this road is bound to get smoother soon

Wondering which fork to take in this road
Doesn't really matter cause you won't be there
Been trying so long to get a grip on it all
No one ever said life fair
I'll probably end up dying from a broken heart
There's no one to blame but myself
This passionate love and desire I have for you
I guess I'll just have to put back on a shelf

This road is bound to get smoother soon
For so long it seems like I have been cursed
They say that there is always tomorrow
I'm tired of hearing that same old damn verse
Wondering if my ship will ever come in
Seems like I'm always howling at the moon
So I'll just keep hanging on by this thread
Cause this road is bound to get smoother soon

This Road Is Bound To Get Smoother Soon

Meeting you girl left quite a mark
But I know for you there is no spark
So now I'm dancing in the dark
All alone down by my Blue River

I don't have much to offer you
For so long my life's been askew
So I'll step back and take my view
Looking out on my Blue River

It's so hard saying goodbye
Together we weren't meant to fly
You've gone your own way ,so have I
That's why I'm down here at Blue River

Blue River flows, Blue River knows
Blue River senses how I feel
Blue River breathes life into me
Blue River has power to heal
Blue River roars, Blue River soothes
Blue River is a winding dream
It's always there, always cleanses
Washes my sorrows out to sea

There's no reason asking why
I gave it the old college try
Every time I think of you I cry
Tears of joy into Blue River

I wish blessings on you and yours
Through lifes many journeys and tours
I'll just sit back, sip on my Coors
And be one with my Blue River

Blue River flows, Blue River knows
Blue River senses how I feel
Blue River breathes life into me
Blue River has power to heal
Blue River roars, Blue River soothes
Blue River is a winding dream
It's always there, always cleanses
Washes my sorrows out to sea

Blue River flows, Blue River flows
Blue River knows, Blue River knows

Blue River

Like a ton of bricks myn life came crashing down
Felt the whole weight of the world bearing down on me
Couldn't quite help it I'd been wearing a frown
Then I met you aand you set me free
I know time and circumstance can not be ignored
But I've never met someone I so adored

I love you so
And even though
Carolyn you and I are worlds apart
You'll always have a place in my heart
Even if you'd rather not know
I love you so

Somehow I got lost now there's no turning back
Missed out on the things in life that are real
And I know you'd prefer it if I were to just yield
But there's just no denying this way for you that I feel

I love you so
But I'll never be your beau
Well if only I had a plan
Maybe I could be your man
Seems what-ifs are all I've ever known

Looking to the heavens above
Telling God this must be love
And praying He'll lead me to your shore
It's been so long since I felt this way
Only one thing left to say
You're everything to me then some more

I love you so
And as these feelings grow
Just like life in itself yearns the sun
You are the only one
You take me to a place I've never been before

I love you so
But it takes two to tango
So I'll just have to face this harsh reality
That you and I will never be
To quoth the raven nevermore
And I know that I probably should go
Help me Carolyn cause I don't want to go
Cause I love you so

Carolyn it's you

I Love You So

I know it's just a dream
A shot in the dark
But I'm here before you now
With open arms
On this long journey
I know I must embark
Searching for days that I've
Only heard of

Halcyon Days
Though storm clouds rage above
This tempest I'll endure
Cause you're the one I love
All the riches in the world
I would turn them all away
Just to have you right here
By my side today
Halcyon Days

Been lost at sea
Through so many storms
Drifting aimlessly
With the tide
Then I met you
Felt as if I'd been reborn
Hoping someday that
You will be my guide

To Halcyon Days
Maybe when the time is right
These skies will finally clear
And I'll see the light
The light in your eyes
That leads me to shore
And all of the joy you bring
I'm so desperate for

Halcyon Days
Time spent with you I never would exchange
I know this all must seem
Just a little strange
But all the riches in the world
I would turn them all away
Just to have you right here
By my side today

I know it's just a dream
A shot in the dark
But I'm here before you now
With open arms

Halcyon Days

For so long I had faced darkness
Wasn't any real hope in sight
Then a beacon int the distance
Helped steer me closer to the light
The light that shines down from above
That I've only heard about
Believe me when I say that beacon it was you girl
And now I don't have any single doubt

Carolyn I want to thank you so much
For helping me to save my soul
(save my soul)
You helped put me back onto the right track
Towards the ultimate goal
(saving my soul)

You started out by giving to me
A book that you picked up on a whim
A book that showed me so many revelations
And re-introduced me to Him
The amazing love that emits from your heart
Each and every single day
Has now filled my mind with so much wonder
Now there's only one thing left to say

Carolyn I want to thank you so much
For helping me to save my soul
(save my soul)
You helped put me back onto the right track
Towards the ultimate goal
(saving my soul)
Carolyn I want to thank you so much
For helping me to save my soul
(save my soul)
You helped put me back onto the right track
Towards the ultimate goal
(saving my soul)

And I know of you I am not worthy
And that it's probably time I should go
But before I leave you forever
There's just one thing I'd like you to know

Carolyn I want to thank you so much
For helping me to save my soul
(save my soul
You helped put me back onto the right track
Towards the ultimate goal
(saving my soul)
Carolyn I want to thank you so much
For helping me to save my soul
(save my soul)
You helped put me back onto the right track
Towards the ultimate goal

The Ultimate Goal
