Track Name: Three Words (For Mike & David)
Now listen, it may be too soon to say, but it ain’t like it don’t show
Darlin’ my eyes will tell you everything that you already know
I wanna state the obvious but you and I say hey let’s take it slow
And yet it doesn’t need to be heard
How I love how we’re hanging on these three words.

My mamma always told me darlin’, see, when you know it you know
Don’t be a fool enough to think that you got it in control
When destiny decides you got to put your shit aside and let it role, let it role
And though it doesn’t need to be heard
Darlin' I love how we’re hanging on these three words.

You aint’ gotta say nothing baby
When you look at me the way you do
Just turn me round and round sweet baby
I’m gonna love you, love you, the same way too

Love is a power, and it will not be denied
And baby I been looking for you, I been lookin’ for ya all of my life
Head over feet, I’m in so deep, it’s plane to see
Oh, yes I know you know, yes you know
And yet it doesn’t need to be heard
How I love how we’re hanging on these three words
You don’t need me to tell ya nothing baby
Oh , I love how we’re hanging on these three words.
Track Name: Always Have, Always Will (For Luana & Mike)
I look back on our life
When I look into our grandkids eyes
So full of love, so full of light
How did we come so far
And holding you tonight
I”m holding every dream I’ve had
Through the good and through the bad
We could never be apart
And you say “I love you"
And I say ‘me too”

Always Have, Always Will
Always and Forever, baby
And I love you still
Whatever the need
Whatever the care
I’ll be there
Always have, Always Will

I don’t know what lies ahead
But standing here 60 years strong
I know I’m standing with the one
That always made me smile.
I guess I always knew
My teenage dream from way back then
Would be a love that never ends
It was right there all along
And I say "I love you"
And you say "me too"

Always Have, Always Will
Always and Forever, baby
And I love you still
Whatever the need
Whatever the care
I’ll be there
Always have, Always will
Track Name: Shine Again (For Bob)
Too much wasted time
You try so hard to get it right
Missing every moment
Caught up in the could have been
Wishing life away
Pushing through another day
There’s gotta be something
Or somebody who will let you in

In your heart
Baby, that's where you should be lookin'
All the love you're missin’
Shining there inside of you

So step into the light
Chase away the night
The sun will always shine
The sun will always shine again

Midnight’s gonna fade
Dawn is just a truth away
And you already know it
Cause you hold it there inside your heart
So let go
Baby give yourself permission
It’s time you started livin’
No one needs to show you how

Just step into the light
Chase away the night
The sun will always shine
The sun will always shine again

It’s gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright
Track Name: God's Amazing Grace (For Katina & Colby)
I’ve gone down roads that led me astray
I gave my heart and I felt it break
I guess the broken pieces
Can mend with a little faith, cause
Your love is living proof
Of God’s amazing grace

Here in your arms I don’t hide my heart
Gone are the fears that tore me apart
I know the trail of tears I’ve cried
Has led me to this place
Your love is living proof
Of God’s amazing grace

And our road starts here
Let us now begin again
With Jesus as our shepherd
Our ever constant Friend
Thank you Jesus
Thank you Lord

With this ring I now surrender to heaven’s perfect plan
Not our will, Oh Father, but take us by the hand
And guide us in your wisdom
Let us now behold your face
Cause your love is living proof
Come and fill this place
Your love is living proof
That we are saved by grace
Your love is living proof
Of God’s amazing grace.
Track Name: I Celebrate You (For Franklin and Robert)
Do you know how proud I am, baby
Of who you are, and what we’ve become
When I look at the man that I married
I see a man that’s so full of love

For me
For my family
And my children, and their children
And for what we believe and that’s why...

I celebrate you
Baby, I celebrate you
You made it this far
By living your truth
And now I celebrate you

This old world can weigh heavy on you, baby,
And some will try to say that we’re wrong
But remember, you are one divine expression
Of a God who made you perfect, just as you are

So shine
Shine your light
It’s so much brighter than you know
So when it’s hard to let it show, know that

I celebrate you
Baby, I celebrate you
You made it this far
By living your truth
And now I celebrate you

Feeling lost and unworthy
It was no easy fight
Learning what to believe
Who was wrong and what was right
Looking back on our journey
And where we are today
There’s one thing I could tell you
There’s something I gotta say, baby

I celebrate you
Darling, I celebrate you
You made it this far
By living your truth
And now I celebrate you
Baby, I celebrate you
Darling, I celebrate you
(I love you, Robert)
Track Name: Just Because (For Randy & Patricia)
Riding shotgun on the 21 to Memphis
You and I were young and feeling restless
Singing loud to the radio
No real place to go
God the memories we had together
Every rite of passage you were right there
Hair and makeup always done
And sorting through these photographs
I wonder now and then
How your little brother could become your closest friend
Then I hear you say
As if you were here today

Just Because
Loving you is reason enough
You don't have to ask why
Baby you are my life and you know
Anytime the world is too much
I'll be there to do what love does
Just Because

I don't know how life goes on without you
Seasons pass and year to year I try to
Keep the images alive
They fade a little more with time
And somewhere in the missing
I remember once again
There's an angel up in heaven
And she's still my closest friend
Here me when I say
It could be no other way

Just Because
Loving you is reason enough
You don't have to ask why
Baby you are my life and you know
Anytime the world is too much
I'll be there to do what love does
Just Because

Somewhere in the missing
I remember once again
There's an angel up in heaven and she's
Still my closest friend
Here me when I say
It could be no other way

Just Because
Loving you is reason enough
You don't have to ask why
Baby you are my life and you know
Anytime the world is too much
I'll be there to do what love does
Just Because
Track Name: True To You (For Chris)
Sounds like you’re down on yourself again
Thinking how you could go and do that again
And it makes you mad
So sick of being sad
That you don’t even want to begin again
What’s done is done.
And believe it or not
It’s here to remind you of what you got
Inside of you
There’s a light in you
But baby,

You wouldn’t see the light
If you didn’t know the dark
It’s knowing who you’re not
That tells you who you are
No blame, no shame
Nothing to prove
You’re only learning how to be true to you
You’re only learning how to be true to you

You wanna make a list of might have beens
All the years that fell into oblivion
When you dance with regret
It will take you to the edge
Till you don’t even know how to live again
See the path we take
Is by design
It’s meant to awaken
And redefine the soul of you
That beautiful Light of you
But baby...

You wouldn’t see the light
If you didn’t know the dark
It’s knowing who you’re not
That tells you who you are
No blame, no shame
Nothing to prove
You’re only learning how to be true to you
You’re only learning how to be true to you

What’s done is done
And believe it or not
It’s here to remind you of what you got
Inside of you
There is a light in you
Oh baby,

You wouldn’t see the light
If you didn’t know the dark
It’s knowing who you’re not
That tells you who you are
No blame, no shame
Nothing to prove
You’re only learning how to be true to you
You’re only learning how to be true to you
Track Name: What I Got (For Beth)
Why does everyone seem to have more?
The perfect body the perfect hobby
The cutest clothes from the finest stores
Yoga class and cafes with a new age attitude
Yeah, there all after something
Or just something else to do

But sometimes I wonder
Should I stretch myself thinner
Do I appear to be a winner?
Am I good enough?
But then I remember
Life is more than survival
More than a glorified arrival
It’s hear and now

And right now I am grateful
For a good man to hold me
A family that loves me
A home of my own
I can say that I’m thankful
For the job that supports me
Old friends that surround me
And I’m never alone
Life may keep me running till I drop
But baby I love what I got

I’m not saying I don’t have dreams of my own
When you’re buried under, don’t we all wonder
If there’s another life we could have known
What might have been, what could be, what remains to be seen
I”m still allowed to question
It’s still okay to dream

But this morning
I wanna count all my blessings
Feel good in the knowing
That I’m good enough
Someone out there somewhere
Might be looking at me
Thinking how lucky I must be
To have so much love

So right now I am grateful
For a good man to hold me
A family that loves me
For a home of my own
I can say that I’m thankful
For the job that supports me
Old friends that surround me
And I’m never alone
Life may keep me running till I drop
Sometimes I feel I’m running till I drop
But baby I love what I got
Track Name: Home To Me (For Mark)
Love is unmistakable
It’s undeniable
And it knows no boundaries
Love
It’s just as limitless
Just as definitive
As it ever was
And I’ve taken the long way around it
Sometimes I doubt it
But it’s calling out to me
And it makes me believe in..

You
You’re in my heart
You’re under my skin
As near as the air i breath it’s You
Wherever you are
Wherever you’ve been
I feel you coming home to me.
You, You’re coming home to me

Time, it’s unforgivable
So unmerciful
It keeps marching on and
This, it's unfamiliar
I’m not so graceful
With this game of love
But I”m speaking the hope that I’m holding
A truth that I’m knowing
When I imagine you
I cannot be moved cause

You
You’re in my heart
You’re under my skin
As near as the air i breath it’s You
Wherever you are
Wherever you’ve been
I feel you coming home to me.
You, You’re coming home to me


And i’ll keep this vision
I will hold this feeling
I will keep believing till you are here with me

You
You’re in my heart
You’re under my skin
As near as the air i breath it’s You
Wherever you are
Wherever you’ve been
I feel you coming home to me.
You, You’re coming home to me
