- The vows go unbroken by Kenny Rogers-
“From the moment I met you,
You made my life complete.
This wave of pure devotion,
Has swept me off my feet.
And tonight when we kissed,
You still took my breath away.
It goes without saying,
But I’ll say it anyway…
The vows go un-broken – and you still know I do.
Love, keep and honor – always true to you.
Though I have been tempted,
Oh I have never strayed.
I’d die before I’d damage,
This union we have made.”
- Second violin by Bagatalle-
“I would have given you
Anything that you wanted
I would have taken you
Anywhere you wanted to go
I would have answered you
Any question that you asked me
I would have told you
Anything you wanted to know
We used to live
Like there was gonna be no tomorrow
As if a new day
Wasn’t gonna begin
But the light in your eyes
Has gone and said good bye
And I don’t wanna be
Your second violin
The little things you do
I still keep them in my memory
And little things you said
I still keep them in my mind
The times we had were good
And we never had a problem
Times that we’re leaving
So very very far behind”
Tell ’em all I’m on vacation
Say I went to visit friends
That you ain’t heard or seen from me in quite a while
When they ask you where I’ve been
Tell ’em I’m out on the West Coast
Where it don’t ever rain
And that I’m probably doing fine
Just don’t tell ’em I’ve gone crazy
That I’m still strung out over you
Tell ’em anythin’ you want to
Just don’t tell ’em all the truth
Yeah, don’t tell ’em all the truth
Tell ’em all I’m out in Vegas
Blowin’ every dollar I ever made
Tell ’em that I must be into somethin’ bad for me
‘Cause I sure lost a lot of weight
Tell ’em I’m out on the road
With some old rock and roll band
Living like a gypsy can
The truth is that I’m askin’ you to lie
And we both know that it ain’t right
But if you ever loved me
Please have some mercy on me”
- Cologne by Dolly Parton –
“You ask me not to wear cologne
She’ll know you’ve been with me alone
And you can’t take our secret home
So you ask me not to wear cologne
You can wipe the make up off
The lipstick or a little gloss
But fragrance lingers on and on
So you ask me not to wear cologne
You leave my bed and go to hers
Leaving me alone and hurt
I love you whether right or wrong
And you ask me not to wear cologne
I’m not out to hurt someone
Not you, not her, not any one
But I got heartaches of my own
Why, I can’t even wear cologne
Oh but I never meant for this to be
It wasn’t in my heart to cheat
Love has a nature all it’s own
So I willingly gave up cologne
And every time you come to me
I realize I’m in too deep
I know you love us both and I keep holding on
You ask me not to wear cologne
You say, “Don’t wear cologne”
Oh now what am I ever gonna do
Cause I am so in love with you
I know you love us both
But where do I belong
You ask me not to wear cologne”
- Evening star by Kenny Rogers-
“If you never rode West of the Arizona border
You can turn the other way boy but you never get far
You be living a lie if you wanna see the wonders of the age
You must follow the evening star.
Shine a little Heaven
On a stranger with no dream
Where you are.
You can see the loneliness I mean and if I gotta fight
I can never play somebody else’s game
I can follow the evening star
Starlight, you never need somebody else’s name
If you follow the evening star.
Have you ever known a sunset when the sky’s on fire
How you end another day boy you’ve been searching too far
Like the desert I rode on any memory is lost in the restless wind
I just lie beneath the evening star.”
“I’ve been cheated by you since I don’t know when
So I made up my mind, it must come to an end
Look at me now, will I ever learn?
I don’t know how but I suddenly lose control
There’s a fire within my soul
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, w-o-o-o-oh
Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I’ve missed you
Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?
Mamma mia, now I really know,
My my, I could never let you go.”
- Some Broken Hearts Never Mend by Don Williams –
“Coffee black, cigarettes,
start this day, like all the rest,
First thing every morning that I do,
Is start missing you
Some broken hearts never mend,
Some memories never end,
Some tears will never dry,
My love for you will never die
Rendezvous in the night,
A willing woman to hold me tight,
But in the middle of love’s embrace,
I see your face”
- This world is not our own by Jim Reeves –
“This world is not my home
I’m just a-passing through
My treasures are laid up
Somewhere beyond the blue.
The angels beckon me
From heaven’s open door
And I can’t feel at home
In this world anymore.
Oh Lord, you know
I have no friend like you
If heaven’s not my home
Then Lord what will I do.”
- Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler –
“It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way.
You always walked a step behind.
So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.
Did you ever know that you’re my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.
It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I’ve got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.”
- when you say nothing at all by Ronan Keating
It’s amazing how you
Can speak right to my heart.
Without saying a word
You can light up the dark.
Try as I may, I could never explain
What I hear when you don’t say a thing.
The smile on your face
Lets me know that you need me.
There’s a truth in your eyes
Saying you’ll never leave me.
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me wherever I fall.
You say it best when you say nothing at all.
All day long I can hear
People talking out loud
But when you hold me near
You drown out the crowd
Try as they may, they can never define
What’s been said between your heart and mine.
