Lyrics

Jocelyn B. Smith - My Way Anniversary Edition 2015

If I Never Sing Another Song

In my heyday
Young men wrote to me
Everybody seemed to have time to devote to me

Everyone I saw all swore they knew me
Once upon a song
Main attraction, couldn’t buy
a seat
The celebrity, celebrities were dying to meet
I’ve had every accolade bestowed on
me
And so you see

If I never sing another song
It wouldn’t bother me
I had
my share of fame
You know my name

If I never sing another song
Or take another
bow
I would get by, but I’m not sure how

Always posing, but you love it all

Though you have to learn to act like you’re above it all
Everything I did the world
applauded
Once upon a star

Framed citations, hung on every wall
Got a scrapbook
full of quotes, I can recall them all
There were times I felt the world belonged to me
And
so you see

If I never sing another song
It wouldn’t bother me
I had my share of
fame
You know my name

If I never sing another song
Or take another bow
I
would get by, but I’m not sure how
But I’m not sure how
But I’m not sure how

Heut & hier

Stell dir das Gefühl vor
Wie ein Träumer noch zu staunen
Bruder fällt dir´s schwer
Aber dann sag mir
Hm hm
Was tun wir heut und hier

Kannst du sie verstehen
Die Menschen die noch suchen
Wir könnten glücklich sein
Aber dann sag mir
Hm hm

Wofür wir Kämpfen?
Wofür wir leben?
Wofür wir sterben?
Wofür wir beten?
Aber dann sag mir
Was tun wir heut und hier

Wie wollen wir wachsen
mit Herzen voll verwirrung
Immer auf dem sprung
Komm sag mir die Wahrheit

Wofür wir kämpfen?
Wofür wir sterben?
Wofür wir beten?
Wofür wir leben?

Wofür wir kämpfen?
Wofür wir leben?
Wofür wir beten?
Sag was wir lieben
Was wollen wir lieben?
Instrumental
Wofür wolln wir lieben
Wozu sind wir Lernende
Und wofür geboren
Wofür wolln wir atmen

Wozu die Tränen
Und wozu fliegen
Und wozu die Hast
All diese Hast

So,was tun wir heut und hier
was tun wir heut und hier
Oh,was tun wir

Ein Stück vom Himmel

Warum in seinem Namen?
Wir heißen selber auch.
Wann stehen wir für unsre Dramen?
Er wird viel zu oft gebraucht.
Alles unendlich, unendlich.

Welche Armee ist heilig?
Du glaubst nicht besser als ich!
Bibel ist nicht zum einigeln,
die Erde ist unsere Pflicht!
Sie ist freundlich, freundlich –
wir eher nicht.

Ein Stück vom Himmel,
ein Platz von Gott,
ein Stuhl im Orbit,
wir sitzen alle in einem Boot!
Hier ist dein Haus,
hier ist was zählt.
Du bist überdacht
von einer grandiosen Welt.

Religionen sind zu schonen,
sie sind für Moral gemacht.
Da ist nicht eine hehre Lehre,
kein Gott hat klüger gedacht,
ist im Vorteil, im Vorteil.

Welches Ideal heiligt die Mittel?
Wer löscht jetzt den Brand?
Legionen von Kreuzrittern
haben sich blindwütig verrannt.
Alles unendlich, warum unendlich?
Krude Zeit.

Ein Stück vom Himmel
ein Platz von Gott,
ein Stuhl im Orbit.
Wir sitzen alle in einem Boot.

Hier ist dein Heim,
dies ist dein Ziel.
Du bist ein Unikat,
das sein eigenes Orakel spielt.
Es wird zu viel geglaubt,
zu wenig erzählt.

Es sind Geschichten,
sie einen diese Welt.
Nöte, Legenden, Schicksale, Leben und Tod,
glückliche Enden, Lust und Trost.

Ein Stück vom Himmel
der Platz von Gott.
Es gibt Milliarden Farben,
und jede ist ein eigenes Rot.
Hier ist dein Heim,
dies unsere Zeit.
Wir machen vieles richtig,
doch wir machen’s uns nicht leicht
Dies ist mein Haus,
dies ist mein Ziel.

Wer nichts beweist,
der beweist schon verdammt viel.

Es gibt keinen Feind, es gibt keinen Sieg.
Nichts kann niemand verleiden,
keiner hat sein Leben verdient.
Es gibt genug für alle,
es gibt viel schnelles Geld,
wir haben raue Mengen,
und wir teilen diese Welt,
und wir stehen in der Pflicht.

Die Erde ist freundlich,
warum wir eigentlich nicht?
Sie ist freundlich,
warum wir eigentlich nicht?

Somalia Song

Why can´t I stop the wheels from turning
How can I stop the babies from crying
How can I stop the children from dying
whoah I ask you so many questions and

Why don´t it rain in Somalia
And why don´t the kids have a home
I ask these questions cause it´s faith in you you see
But the answer is we can´t do it alone

How can I stop the children from dying
How can I keep the mother from crying
What can I give the hopeless man from dying
whoah I ask you so many questions and

Jo Jo

One day your gonna look around
And soon one day you´re gonna be big and tall
One day you´re gonna reach for your stars Jonathan and Josefine

One day you might not cry anymore
Cause someday you might just laugh too loud
And suddenly the world might seem too small Jonathan and Josefine

Maybe you´ll choose to born again
So you can smile one more time at us again
I know we´ll choose you again we will we will
Jonathan &Josefine

2xYou´ll choose to fly high
You´ll do what´s right
And you´ll belong only to each other over and over
One day you might not cry anymore
Cause someday you just might laugh too loud
And suddenly the world might seem too small Jonathan and Josefine
One day it just might not make any sense
Only because you finally past the rest
I only pray that love will come your way that love will come your way, that love will come your way Jonathan &Josefine, Jonathan and Josefine

How Much I Love You

Did I ever say How Much I love you
Did I ever say How much I care
I whisper and reveal the things that my heart will always be there always be there,LOVE will always be there

Look into my eyes it´s so amazing
That I am completely so really wanting you
Yours a burning fire I must confess that
That I´m wanting That I ´m loving you

Did I ever say How Much I love you
Did I ever say How much I care
I whisper and reveal the things that my heart will always be there,
always be there my love will always be there,
How much I love you, so much I love you I do

Adagio – Praise Jah

Praise HIM in the heights
Praise Jah all you people

Praise ye sun and moon
All ye stars of light

And you waters of the heavens
Praise HIM in the heights

When I Need You

No one knows the side of you that I know
No one gets to see, to feel you
To hear you when they call
I’m the only one you answer
Because I know what to do
I know what to do

When I need you
I just close my eyes and I’m with you
And all that I so want to give you
Is only a heartbeat away
When I need love
I hold out my hand and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day

Miles and miles of empty space in between us
A telephone can’t take the place of your smile
But I won’t be traveling forever
It’s cold out, but hold out
And do like I do

When I need you
I just close my eyes and I’m with you
And all that I so want to give you
Is only a heartbeat away

It’s not easy when the road is your driver
But honey that’s the heavy load that we bear
But I won’t be traveling a lifetime
It’s cold out, but hold out
And do like I do
When I need you

But I won’t be traveling a lifetime
It’s cold out, oh honey, hold out
And do like I do

When I need you
I just close my eyes and I’m with you baby
And all that I so want to give you
Is only a heartbeat away

When I need love
I hold out my hand and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day
Honey, when I need you

Sometimes

Sometimes it takes a season
and sometimes it just breaks your heart
Sometimes there are things you can´t get over
And sometimes it just takes a moment

And sometimes the world is just a wonder
And sometimes it just breaks your heart
Sometimes there are things that you can´t get over
And sometimes it takes a moment

Sometimes it makes me wonder
Sometimes
Sometimes it makes me wonder ,it makes me wonder

The Look Of Love

The look of love
Is in your eyes
The look your smile can’t disguise
The look of love
Is saying so much more
Than just words could ever say
And what my heart has heard
Well it takes my breath away

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you

You’ve got the look of love
It’s on your face
A look that time can’t erase
Be mine tonight
Let this be just the start
Of so many nights like this
Let’s take a lover’s vow
And then seal it with a kiss

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you
Don’t ever go

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you
Don’t ever go
Don’t ever go
I love you so

What Are We Doing Here

Imagine the feeling ,When a dreamer still can wonder
Brother don´t you know
So why don´t you tell me What are we doing here

Can you sill believe in the ones that keep on trying
How happy we could be
So why don´t you tell me
What are we fighting for
What do we live for
What do we pray for
What do we die for
So why don´t you tell me What are we doing here

Imagine confusion without a place to grow in
Brother don´t you know
So why don´t you tell me
What are we fighting for
What do we live for
What do we pray for
What do we die for
What are we fighting for
What do we live for
What do we pray for
What do we love for What do we love for

What do we love for
What are we working for
What are we born for
What do we breathe for
What do we cry for
Why do we fly
Why do we run why do we run
So what are we doing here ,What are doing here

Things We Can't Fix

2xThere are things ya´can´t fix in a lifetime
SO comon´baby comon´ make up your mind

Some people need more love
Some people can´t get enough
Some people need more than others and can´t believe they steal your clothes
I heard a lady say to the next door neighbor the other day “You can´t be everything to everybody oh!”

2xThere are things ya´can´t fix in a lifetime
SO comon´baby comon make up your mind

Some people need more drama
Some people need a little more glamour
And there´s a guy who wants to be ugly for a lifetime
I heard a lady say to the next door neighbor the other day “You can´t be everything to everybody oh!”

2xThere are things ya´can´t fix in a lifetime
SO comon´baby comon make up your mind

Excuse ,Excuse me mister if I´m talking to you but it gets pretty entertaining down here
Some people don´t know what to do with themselves
They ´re looking right at you when they are talking with themselves
