Song: Things I Prayed For

Artist: Eli

Things I prayed for when I was young
That my father would love me like his only son
That my mother would be patient with me
And my sister would not leave
And if my grandpa could see me beyond his grave
That he’d think his little man was so great
That my hair would not stick up in weird places
And I’d be someone someday

Years go by so easily that sometimes I forget
Years go by and make me see that there’s no time for my regret
No time for my regret

Things I prayed for in my teens
That God would forgive all my evil deeds
That my father and my sister would come home
And mom could meet our needs
And if my grandpa could see me beyond his grave
That he’d say a prayer for his family’s sake
That my hair would stick up in weird places
And I’d be someone someday

Years go by so easily that sometimes I forget
Years go by and make me see that there’s no time for my regret
No time for my regret

Things I pray for now in my twenties
That God would still love me
That my dad would like his new family
That I could hug my sister, that my mom could rest
That my wife would still melt every time we kissed
And if my grandpa has seen me beyond his grave
How cold and silent he has remained
That my hair would not fall out in weird places
And I’d be someone someday

Years go by so easily that sometimes I forget
Years go by and make me see that there’s no time for my regret
No time for my regret

These are the things I prayed for
That I’d be someone someday

Song: Eileen’s Song

Burlap to Cashmere

Refrain: You have one wing
and I have another
Seeking shelter like sister and brother
Through the winter and through the summer
Like one angel we’ll
Fly far away

Hold my hand and we’ll make it all right
From this hell that we live in
Cross the road until the light
Comes inside and lives within
It’s a long and lonesome ride
When your friends have all gone home
But the roses in your eyes
They pull me in so I don’t feel alone

Refrain

Sometimes I just can’t help but cry
When I think of what we’ve become
Like a soldier lost in the night
Forgetting all where he has come from
But the mud will soon become dry
And the sun will rise again
And the shadows in our eyes
Will fade away down to lower plains
Cause’

Refrain 3x

So my friend now this I say
I won’t leave you hangin’ on
Hold on tight now and don’t fly away
Till one angel we have become

Song: Princes and Frogs

Got this from my AWESOME friend Jaci:

You hate humans is what you say
And I understand how you feel that way
All girls dream of a fairy tale
But what you got is like a used car salesman
Trying to conceal what’s wrong
Behind a smile and a song
And I’m not saying that
Boys are not like that
But I think you should know
That some of us will grow
Because…

All princes start as frogs
All gentleman as dogs
Just wait till it’s plain to see
What we’re growing up to be..
‘Cause some frogs
Will still be frogs
Some dogs will still be dogs
But some boys will become men
Just don’t kiss us ’till then

You found him is what you say
And we all want you to feel that way
The frog you’ve got seems cute enough to kiss
And maybe frogs seem like that’s all there is
But just because you haven’t
Found your prince yet
Doesn’t mean you’re still
Not a princess
And what if your prince
Comes riding in
While you’re kiss’n a frog
What’s he gonna think then
So look into his eyes…..
Are you a princess or a fly?

Song: Mood Rings

Artist: Relient K

We all know the girls that I am talking about
Well they are time bombs and they are ticking
And the only question’s when they’ll blow up
And they’ll blow up; we know that without a doubt
Cause they’re those girls, yeah you know those girls that let their emotions get the best of them

And I’ve contrived some sort of a plan to help my fellow man
Let’s get emotional girls to all wear mood rings
So we’ll be tipped off to when they’re ticked off
Cause we’ll know just what they’re thinking
Cause what they’re thinking…

She’s so pretty but she but doesn’t always act that way
Her mood’s out swinging on the swing set almost every day
She said to me that she’s so happy it’s depressing
And all I said was someone get that girl a mood ring

If it’s drama you want then look no further
They’re like the real world meets boy meets world meets days of our lives
And it just kills me how they get away with murder
They’ll anger you then bat their eyes; those pretty eyes that watch you sympathize

And I’ve contrived some sort of a plan to help my fellow man
Let’s get emotional girls to all wear mood rings
So we’ll be tipped off to when they’re ticked off
Cause we’ll know just what they’re thinking
Cause what they’re thinking…

She’s so pretty but she but doesn’t always act that way
Her mood’s out swinging on the swing set almost every day
She said to me that she’s so stressed out that it’s soothing
And all I said was someone get that girl a mood ring

Cause when it’s black (it) means watch your back because you’re probably
The last person in the world right now she wants to see
And when it’s blue it means that you should call her up immediately
And ask her out because she’ll most likely agree
And when it’s green it simply means that she is really stressed
And when it’s clear it means she’s completely emotionless (and that’s all right I must confess)

We all know the girls that I am talking about
She liked you wednesday but now it’s friday and she has to wash her hair
And it just figures that we’ll never figure them out
First she’s jekyll and then she’s hyde….at least she makes a lovely pair

Mood ring oh mood ring
Oh tell me will you bring
The key to unlock this mystery
Of girls and their emotions
Play it back in slow motion
So I may understand the complex infrastructure known as the female mind

Song: I Know

Artist: Seventh Day Slumber
Album: Picking Up The Pieces

Wonder what can be so bad
That it makes you want to die
I wonder what could be so tragic
Makes you want to take your life
You have your Savior on the cross
While you sit on the throne
Put yourself up on that cross
Put your Savior on the throne

And I know it’s hard to take what’s happening
And I know life is tough sometimes
And I know it seems like there’s no hope for you
And I know your life is worth more than you can see

It’s hard to see beyond your pain
When you feel so dead inside
It’s hard to see what you’ve been given
It’s hard to find the hope in life

And I know it’s hard to take what’s happening
And I know life is tough sometimes
And I know it seems like there’s no hope for you
And I know your life is worth more than you can see

And I say look at Jesus’ hands
Those scars are there for you
You know He understands
What you’re going through
