Like a Prayer 1989

Like A Prayer
Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees
I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know
I'll take you there

I hear your voice
It's like an angel sighing
I have no choice
I hear your voice
Feels like flying
I close my eyes
Oh God I think I'm falling
Out of the sky
I close my eyes
Heaven help me

Like a child you whisper softly to me
You're in control just like a child
Now I'm dancing
It's like a dream
No end and no beginning
You're here with me, It's like a dream
Let the choir sing

Just like a prayer
I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me
Just like a prayer
I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me

Just like a prayer
your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me
You are a mystery
Just like a dream
You are not what you seem
Just like a prayer
No choice
Your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer
I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me

 

 

Express Yourself
Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test you know
You know you've got to
Make him express how he feels and maybe
Then you'll know your love is real

You don't need diamond rings or eighteen
karat gold
Fancy cars that go very fast you know they
Never last, no, no
What you need is a big strong hand to
Lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you till you can't come down
You'll never come down

Long stem roses are the way to your heart but
He needs to start with your head
Satin sheets are very romantic what happens
When you're not in bed
You deserve the best in life
So if the time isn't right then move on
Second best is never enough
You'll do much better baby on your own
Baby on your own

Express yourself
You've got to make him
Express himself
Hey, hey, hey, hey
So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Oh baby ready or not

And when you're gone he might regret it
Think about the love he once had
Try to carry on

But he just won't get it
He'll be back on his knees
To express himself
You've got to make him
Express himself
Hey hey

 

 

Love Song
Are you wasting my time
Are you just being kind
Oh no baby, my love isn't blind
Are you wasting my time
Are you just being kind
Don't givin' me one of your lines

Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Don't go and throw our love away
God strike me dead if I did you wrong
This is not a love song

Are you just being kind
Am I losing my mind

Time goes by so slowly for those who wait
And those who run
Seem to have all the fun
But are you wasting my time--- she's so fine
Are you just being kind

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
That's how I feel
Don't fog my mind

Mean what you say or baby I am gone
This is not a love song

Love song
Love song
Don't try to tell me what your enemies
Taught you
I'm gone but I just want you to know
That this is not a love song
That I want to sing

 

 

Till Death Do Us Part
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change
But it won't
If you don't

You need so much but not from me
Turn your back in my hour of need
Well Something's wrong
But you pretend you
Don't see
I think I interrupt your life
When you laugh it cuts me just like a knife
I'm not your friend
I'm just your little wife

Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change
But it won't
If you don't
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would
But it won't 'Cause you
Don't love me no more

They never laugh, not like before
She takes the keys, he breaks the door
She cannot stay here anymore
He's not in love with her anymore

The bruises they will fade away
You hit so hard with the things you say
I will not stay to watch your hate as it grows
You're not in love with someone else
You don't even love yourself
Still I wish you'd ask me not to go

He takes a drink, she goes inside
He starts to scream, the vases fly
He wishes that she wouldn't cry
He's not in love with her anymore

He makes demands, she draws the line
He starts the fight, she starts the lie
But what is truth when something dies
He's not in love with her anymore

She's had enough, she says the end
But she'll come back, she knows it then
A chance to start it all again
Till death do us part

 

 

Promise To Try
Little girl don't you forget her face
Laughing away your tears
When she was the one who felt all the pain

Little girl never forget her eyes
Keep them alive inside
I promise to try --- but it's not the same

Keep your head held high --- ride like the wind
Never look behind, life isn't fair
That's what you said, so I try not to care

Little girl don't run away so fast
I think you forgot to kiss --- kiss her goodbye

Will she see me cry when I stumble and fall
Does she hear my voice in the night when I call
Wipe away all your tears, it's gonna be all right

I fought to be so strong, I guess you knew
I was afraid you'd go away, too

Little girl you've got to forget the past
And learn to forgive me
I promise to try --- but it feels like a lie

Don't let memory play games with your mind
She's a faded smile frozen in time
I'm still hanging on --- but I'm doing it wrong
Can't kiss her goodbye --- but I promise to try

 

 

Cherish
So tired of broken hearts, of losing at this game
Before I start this dance
I take a chance in telling you
I want more than just romance
You are my destiny, I can't let go baby
Can't you see
Cupid please take your aim at me

Cherish the thought
Of always having you here by my side
Cherish the joy
You keep bringing it into my life
Cherish your strength
You got the power to make me feel good
Perish the thought
Of ever learning I never would

I was never satisfied with casual encounters
I can't hide the need for two hearts that bleed
With burning love
That's the way it's got to be
Romeo and Juliet, they never felt this way I bet
So don't underestimate my point of view

Who? You! Can't get away I won't let you
Who? You! I could never forget to
Cherish is the word I use to remind me of
.....Your love

Give me strength
Give me joy my boy
I will always
Cherish you

Romeo and Juliet, they never felt this way I bet

So don't underestimate my point of view

 

 

Dear Jessie
Baby face don't grow so fast
Make a special wish that will always last
Rub this magic lantern
He will make your dreams come true for you

Ride the rainbow to the other side
Catch a falling star and then take a ride
To the river that sings and the clover that
Brings good luck to you, it's all true

Pink elephants and lemonade
Dear Jessie hear the laughter
Running through the love parade
Candy kisses and a sunny day, dear Jessie
See the roses raining on the love parade

If the land of make believe Is inside your heart
It will never leave
There's a golden gate where the fairies all wait
And dancing moons, for you

Close your eyes and you'll be there
Where the mermaids sing as they comb
Their hair
Like a fountain of gold you can never grow old
Where dreams are made, your love parade

Your dreams are made inside the love parade
It's a holiday inside the love parade

On the merry-go-round of
Lovers and white turtle doves
Leprechauns floating by
This is your lullaby
Sugarplum fingertips kissing your honey lips
Close your eyes sleepy head
Is it time for your bed
Never forget what I said
Hang on you're already there

 

 

Oh Father
It's funny that way
You can get used
To the tears and the pain
What a child will believe
You never loved me

You can't hurt me now
I got away from you
I never thought I would
You can't make me cry
You once had the power
I never felt so good about myself

Seems like yesterday
I lay down next to your boots and I prayed
For your anger to end
Oh Father I have sinned

Oh Father if you never wanted to live that way
If You never wanted to hurt me
Why am I running away
Oh Father if you never wanted to live that way
If You never wanted to hurt me
Why am I running away

Maybe someday
When I look back I'll be able to say
You didn't mean to be cruel
Somebody hurt you too

 

 

Keep It Together
Keep, keep it together,Keep people together
Forever and ever
Keep, keep it together,Keep people together
Forever and ever
Keep, keep it together,Keep people together
Forever and ever

I got brothers, I got some sisters too
Stuck in the middle tell you what I'm gonna do
Gonna get out of here, I'm gonna leave this place
So I can forget every single hungry face
I'm tired of sharing all the hand me downs
To get attention I must always be the clown
I wanna be different, I wanna be on my own
But Daddy said listen, you will always have
A home

Keep it together in the family
They're a reminder of our history
Brothers and sisters they hold the key
To your heart and your soul
Don't forget that your family is gold

I hit the big time but I still get the blues
Everyone's a stranger, city life can get to you
People can be so cold, never want to turn
Your back
Just givin' to get something
Always wanting something back

When I get lonely and I need to be
Loved for who I am, not what they want to see
Brothers and sisters, they've always been there
For me
We have a connection, home is where the heart
Should be

When I look back on all the misery
And all the heartache that they brought to me
I wouldn't change it for another chance
'Cause blood is thicker than any other
Circumstance

 

 

Spanish Eyes
I know for sure his heart is here with me
Though I wish him back
I know he cannot see
My hands trembling
I know he hears me sing

I light this candle and watch it throw
Tears on my pillow
And if there is a Christ he'll come tonight
And pray for Spanish eyes

And if I have nothing left to show
Tears on my pillow
What kind of life is this if God exists
Then help me pray for Spanish eyes

He had to fight like all the rest
In the barrio all the streets are paved with fear
I don't understand
At least he was a man

How many lives will they have to take
How much heartache
How many suns will they have to burn
Spanish eyes
When will they ever learn

You were not the Maravilla in our minds
We were proud to fight
But we cannot win this blind
Stand your guns against the wall
Who's next in line to fall

 

 

Act Of Contrition
Oh my God
I am heartily sorry for having
Offended Thee
And I detest all my sins
Because of Thy just punishment
But most of all
Because I have offended Thee
Oh my God
Who art all good and deserving
Of all my love
I firmly resolve with
The help of Thy grace
To confess my sins
To do penance
To amend my life
And to avoid
The temptations of evil

Oh my God
I am heartily sorry for having
Offended Thee
And I detest
All my sins because
Of Thy just punishment
But most of all
Because my God
I have offended Thee
Who art all good
Like I knew you would
And deserving
Of all my love
I reserve
I reserve
I reserve
I reserve
I have a reservation
I have a reservation
What do you mean it's not in the computer!!!!!!!!
