My Angel 03:16
My Angel by John Demarkis, John Marsden & Paul Schiebold I will go wherever you lead me Hold my hand Be careful with my heart Let us grow together while tomorrow comes Shine the light forever You are the one With yesterday behind us tomorrow we'll see Oh we'll see it's there to remind us Of how we came to be If I called you my angel Would you answer all my prayers And if I called you my angel Would you always be there Cause I would go wherever you lead me

New Song 03:59
New Song ........ by John Demarkis & John Marsden I've been singing a new song I dedicate it to you Well it ain't nothing like the old songs and it won't make you blue I've been singing a new song Words I've never sung before It's not magic there's no reason I just don't want to sing old songs anymore And I will sing a new song Full of promise, full of hope Yes I will sing a new song Not the old songs, not the sad songs Let's be happy today Hey and maybe everything will be okay If there's a better way to be Then open up your heart and try to show me And I will sing a new song Full of promise, full of hope Yes I will sing a new song Not the old songs, not the sad songs I've been singing a new song One that won't make you blue I've been singing a new song Can't you hear it when I'm singing it to you And I will sing a new song Full of promise, full of hope Yes I will sing a new song Not the old songs, not the sad songs I've been singing a new a song I dedicate it to you

Gone 04:21
Gone ................... by Giselle Felice & John Demarkis There's a train that leaves tonight Or maybe she'll catch a flight There's a long road leading out of town With many beautiful sights Some say you can't go back Some say you never leave But she is gone this time She is gone this time This time All her friends say nothing's been heard There's been no word of her But there's a rumor going around She had a kid and settled down Some say you can't go back Some say you never leave But she is gone this time She is gone this time This time There's a long road that leads into town It's very quiet tonight But the memories dance in your head What a beautiful sight Some say you can't go back Some say you never leave But she is gone this time She is gone this time This time

It Was You 03:43
It Was You ................ by John Demarkis & John Marsden I remember the golden days When we were wild and young Spin the beach on a summer night Out looking for fun We'd drive around in your old mans car Looking for something to do It was you, oh it was you I grew up in a small town And a home full of love My parents taught me right from wrong And that was always enough Maybe those were different times It seems like I always kmew It was you, oh it was you Right by my side it was you The one that I trust, it was you Yes it was Right by my side it was you When I needed a friend oh it was you Seems just like yesterday when we were wild and young We've been together all this time You are the one I still feel the way I did all those years ago It was you, oh it was you

Some Things 04:08
Some Things .......................... by John Demarkis When that feeling is gone When there's nothing you can say You need to be strong To just make it through one day Just keep moving on When the world doesn't seem to turn your way Keep moving along Cause tomorrow the sky won't look so gray Some things will change Some will stay just the same Life can be strange in it's way New love can be found If you leave the past behind Keep both feet on the ground And be sure to keep an open mind Some things will change Some will stay just the same Life can be strange in it's way
