Staring out the window
Sky so blue
Wind blowing through the trees
all I think about is you

But you're gone
Long gone
You're gone
Long Gone

Thinking about the past
All the good times
Lots of fun memories
I wish I could rewind

But time's gone
Long gone
Time's gone
Long gone

Don't take life for granted
The people or the time
Cause when you least expect it
It's nowhere to find

When it's gone
It's long gone
When it's gone
It's long gone

Gone

Verse 1:
He works long hours, he don't get home til late
He never makes it to their dinner dates
The kids don't expect him at their games anymore
They barely get excited when he walks thru the door
His wife begs and pleads for some family time
But he screams about bills and how he needs to unwind
She sits alone in the hallway at night
Last thing she wanted was another fight

Chorus:
I don't want these fancy things
I just want my family
I don't want the mansion home, the brand new car, or the diamond rings
I don't want these material things
I just want to make memories

Verse 2:
One day at work after another fight
He sat in his office and thought maybe she's right
He left work early only to find
A letter on the table that she left behind
He fell to his knees, tears streamed down
He see's how his life has been turned around
So he sits in the hall way all alone
and ponders how he let everything go wrong

Repeat Chorus

Outro:
It's not about what you have
But the ones you love and make you laugh
Make the memories while you can
Those are priceless and can't be spent

Make Memories

verse 1:
Defeated lost and depressed
Frustrated and a little stressed
Life can be so complicated
and sometimes a little overrated

Chorus:
I found a feather in my path today
I know I'm going the right way
It's good to know an angel's by my side
When you're wondering which way to go
Or will you reach a new plateau
An angels there to always be your guide
oooohhhhh

Verse 2:
You give your all just to get knocked down
You struggle hard to get off the ground
It's a cruel world full of judgement
Trust your instincts, you'll be triumphant

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3:
Life comes together, things fall into place
But all the hard times will never be erased
A reminder of all the struggle
Oh, the victory from all the hustle

Repeat Chorus

Feather in my Path

Feather in my Path

As I walk this field
This is where I feel
Your presence close to me

As I scope the land
With your guided hand
I've never felt more free

I'm listening

As the wind blows through
I hear you
That's how you speak to me

As I walk along
Singing your song
I've never been more at peace

I'm listening

I feel the season's change
Though it feels so strange
I know that the leaves must turn brown

Then a new day comes
With the morning sun
Then another season comes around

I'm listening

For there to be growth
I must know
That the rain must come down

It'll seem so long
But when spring comes along
The roots will take to the ground

I'm listening

As I walk this field
This is where I feel
Your presence close to me

As I scope the land
With your guided hand
It's now so clear to me

I'm listening

I'm Listening

Chorus x1:
It's been a long time since I've been to this place
I don't think you'll remember my face
I left here in turmoil so long ago
So I kicked up the dirt and covered that road

Verse 1:
Some good times and bad times left me confused
On if I should settle or should I refuse
I spent many nights awake and cryin
From all of the goodbyes and tired of tryin
I stopped in today just to say hello
But there's still a feeling I just can't let go

Chorus x1

Verse 2:
Throughout my childhood I made some memories
Some people were mean while others were friendly
There were some folks who helped me a lot
Then there were others I wish I forgot
Now it's time to say goodbye
And I'll leave that dirt on your side

Chorus 1x
It's been a long time since I've been to this place
I don't think you'll remember my face

So imma kick up the dirt and cover that road

That Place

Verse 1:
I remember when you gave me butterflies
And how it felt when you kissed me
You always said you'd be by my side
And we'd go down in history
But then you ripped my heart away
Saying there was someone else
You took back everything you said
Not good enough is how I felt

Chorus:
I'm glad!
I'm glad!
I wasn't good enough for you!
I'm glad!
Yea I'm glad!
You weren't good enough for me to

Verse 2:
Thank you for no longer taking my time
Because every second without him was wasted
He would have been so hard to find
If I still stuck with the basic
You made me feel lower than dirt
The moment you walked out that door
But he reminded me of my worth
And how I deserved so much more

Chorus:
I'm glad!
I'm glad!
I wasn't good enough for you!
I'm glad!
Yea I'm glad!
You weren't good enough for me to

Verse3:
Thanks for playing me like a toy
Before moving on to another game
I needed a man not a boy
And boy he puts you to shame

Chorus:

I'm glad!
I'm glad!
I wasn't good enough for you!
I'm glad!
Yea I'm glad!
You weren't good enough for me to

I'm Glad

Verse 1:
When I am lost
And feel like giving up
At what cost
Have I had enough
I hang my head
And let my heart speak
These words were said
As he answered me

Chorus 1x:
Do not fear
You will be fine
For you my dear
Have been through harder times
Trust my word
That I give to you
Because I'm sure
You're gonna make it through

Verse 2:
With you I'm strong
But without you I am weak
When I do wrong
For you I seek
When my path is blinded
And I can't see
I am reminded
Of what you said to me

Chorus 1x

Verse 3:
He knows our paths
And the steps we'll take
He has our backs
In every turn we make
When you start to worry
Bow your head and pray
And through his glory
You will hear him say

Chorus 1x

Ending:
Do not fear
You will be fine
For you my dear
You are mine

Do Not Fear

You dreamed you were a mermaid
But in real life you were just like everyone else
You always felt that you were different
So you spent alot of your time all by yourself

Oh Marina, you felt so alone
Oh Marina, you weren't on your own

Everyone said you wouldnt make it
So you did tlwhat you could to make it through
The the day came when you couldnt take it
So you did what you thought you had to do

Oh Marina, you felt so alone
Oh Marina, you weren't on your own

You dreamed you were a mermaid
In the water you thought you could breathe
All the doubters cried saying they loved you
But the ones who truly did you left to grieve

Oh Marina, you felt so alone
But oh Marina, you weren't on your own
