EXCERPTS:

SONG: DIG

ARTIST: INCUBUS

We all have something that digs at us,
at least we dig each other.
So when weakness turns my ego up,

I know you’ll count on the me from yesterday.

If I turn into another,
dig me up from under what is covering
the better part of me.
Sing this song.
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
when everything else is gone.

SONG: SUDDENLY

ARTIST: SORAYA

A thousand words have tried to say,
but yours are the ones that’ll never fade away. And I
cannot hide from their sound;
I am mesmerized spinning round and round. And
some other hearts have tried to steal mine,
but yours is the one that I now hold dear.
I’ll do what it takes to keep you here.
I’m a selfish fool and I have no fear.

Suddenly in my life
There’s something that’s got me mystified. And I
cannot fight it but I can try
to keep the wonder of it alive.

SONG: BETTER TOGETHER

ARTIST: JACK JOHNSON
But if all of these dreams might find their way
into my day-to-day scene,
I’ll be under the impression
I was somewhere in between
with only two,
just me and you,
not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be.
We’ll sit beneath the mango tree now.

Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together.
Mmmm, we’re somewhere in between together.
Well, it’s always better when we’re together.
Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together.

SONG: ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

ARTIST: BEATLES

Nothing you can know that isn’t known.
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.
It’s easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

Yee-hai!
Oh yeah!
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah.
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah.

SONG: STUCK ON YOU – HAWAIIAN

ARTIST: EKOLU

I’m stuck on you.
I’ve been a fool too long, I guess it’s time for me to come home.
Boy, I’m on my way.
It’s so hard to see
that a man like you could wait around for a woman like me.
Boy, I’m on my way, mighty glad you stayed.

Girl, I’m leaving on that midnight train tomorrow
and I know just where I’m going.
I’ve packed up my troubles and I’ve thrown them all away.
‘Cause this time I’m leavin’,
I’m coming home to stay.

SONG: COLLIDE

ARTIST: HOWIE DAY

I‘m quiet, you know.
You make a first impression.
I’ve found I’m scared to know I’m always on your mind.

Even the best fall down sometimes.
Even the stars refuse to shine.
Out of the back you fall in time.
I somehow find
you and I collide

SONG: I MISS YOU

ARTIST: INCUBUS

To see you when I wake up
is a gift I didn’t think could be real.
To know that you feel the same as I do
is a threefold, utopian dream.

You do something to me that I can’t explain.
So would I be out of line if I said,
I miss you.
I see your picture, I smell your skin on the empty pillow next to mine.
You have only been gone ten days, but already I’m wasting away.
I know I’ll see you again
whether far or soon.
But I need you to know that I care
and I miss you.

SONG: ANYONE ELSE BUT YOU/ALL I WANT IS YOU

ARTIST: ELLEN PAGE AND MICHAEL CERA

You’re a part-time lover and a full-time friend.
The monkey on your back is the latest trend.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else
BUT YOU.

****************

If I was a flower growing wild and free,
all I’d want is you to be my sweet honey bee.
And if I was a tree growing tall and green,
all I’d want is you to shade me and be my leaves.

If you were a wink, I’d be a nod.
If you were a seed, well I’d be a pod.
If you were the floor, I’d wanna be the rug.
And if you were a kiss, I know I’d be a hug.

SONG: NO ONE ELSE COMES CLOSE

ARTIST: JOE

No one else comes close to you.
No one makes me feel the way you do.
You’re so special boy to me,
and you’ll always be eternally.
Every time I hold you near,
you always say the words I love to hear.
Boy, with just a touch you can do so much.
No one else comes close.
