"Billy Gilman" (2006)

Billy The Kid Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Racing down the highway
Road's open wide
A modern-day young gun
On a steel horse ride
Feeling like an outlaw I'm Billy the kid
Makin' most of this moment
'Cause who knows when it will all end

Always on the run
And whatever comes
I'm stickin' to my guns

[Chorus]
They still call me Billy the kid
I'm still wanted for what I did
The price of fame is on my head
Can't shoot down old Billy the kid

Been told many times
To get outta town
I could walk away, baby
But I was born to fight
And I still believe
The west can be born to fight
And I still believe
The west can be won
I'll keep chasing those sunsets
With an angel riding shotgun

Papers say I'm dead
But I ain't buried yet
Still got bullets left

[Chorus]
They still call me Billy the kid
I'm still wanted for what I did
The price of fame is on my head
Can't shoot down old Billy the kid

Southern Star Lyrics – Billy Gilman

I see her climbing my fence
She's throwing stones up at my window
She loves the midnight hour
She wants to play and that's all I need to know
I opened the door to the back porch
Barefoot on the cold floor
Didn't know where she was coming from
But that's what I'm goin' for

[Chorus]
And it seems like the sun never goes down
When the daylight fades on this side of town
And we're dancin' around
Under the southern stars
And it feels like there's nothin' but wide open sky
When you're spreadin' your wings and learning to fly
And you get so high you can't forget where you are
I can't come down
I've gone too far
Wishing on a southern star

We take the long way home
That's where you find your dreams come true
Lying under the falling leaves
That's when you change your point of view
I fell in love that summer
And I tried to tell her
But just try to catch an eagle
Like you could ever

[Chorus]
[Chorus Outro]

Yeah, it seems like the sun never goes down
When the daylight fades on this side of town
And we're dancin' around under the southern stars
I can't come down, I've gone too far
I'm wishin' on my southern star

Let Me Remind You Again Lyrics – Billy Gilman

If you ever forget to remember
This night and all that is meant
If you ever can't see
What you meant to me
Let me remind you again

If you ever look and can't find me
Your heart will know where I've been
If you memory slips
And you can't feel this kiss
Let me remind you again

[Bridge]
We'll always have this moment
It belongs to the two of us
And I only pray
That every day
We'll always remember
The way it was

So let's make this night last forever
Who says all good things must end
And when we're old and gray
And memories fade
I'll still be loving you then
And I will remind you again

[Solo]
And when we're old and gray
And memories fade
I'll still be loving you then
And I will remind you again
Let me remind you again

Gonna Find Love Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Hey girl, take the wheel
I can't drive anymore
What I want is to park this car
When I'm with you
And wait till the cops come around

[Chorus]
Gonna find love if we keep this up
Can't stop, we feel the rush
If we keep foolin' around and it gets crazy enough
We're gonna find love

First time I met you
It crossed my mind
Your next kiss and your last kiss
Are gonna be mine
And I'd say we're right on time

[Chorus]
Gonna find love if we keep this up
Can't stop, we feel the rush
If we keep foolin' around
And it gets crazy enough
We're gonna find love

Steamy windows
There's no way out
One more kiss
Are you with me now

[Solo]
[Chorus]
Gonna find love if we keep this up
Can't stop, we feel the rush
If we keep foolin' around
And it gets crazy enough
We're gonna find love

Designated Driver Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Slow down, get real
Those innocent eyes can't conceal
You're lost, can't find your way
You don't belong
Behind the wheel

[Chorus]
Your designated driver, that's me
And we're drivin' down dream street
The pedal to the floor
And we're headed for heaven's door
With the keys to your heart I'm your
Designated driver

The party's over, you've had enough
One little teardrop is one too much
One shot of pain, one splash of love
You better watch your step
This stuff is dangerous

[Chorus]
Your designated driver, that's me
And we're drivin' down dream street
The pedal to the floor
And we're headed for heaven's door
With the keys to your heart I'm your
Designated driver

You look nervous, losin' your balance
You're gonna have to walk the line
'Cause baby you're gonna be mine

[Solo]
[Chorus]

This ain't no limousine
But it can take you places
You've never seen

[Chorus]

Clueless Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Hey clueless why you do you always do this
Do I have to go through this with you again
Cryin' on my shoulder
Whenever the nights grow colder
And you need more than another fair weather friend
Will it end before sundown
Before the prettiest girl in this town
Runs away from a showdown with me again

[Chorus]
(Look at me now)
Come on baby, you need a rock you can't toss out
When you're under the covers
You think you're so strong
Holdin' on to me now
You know why you come around
I'm the rock you can't toss out

Don't kiss me say you're gonna miss me
Then ditch me till you come back again
Don't touch me
Tell me how much you love me
If you're not gonna love me
Like the world's gonna end
Maybe I never told you
That I want to hold you
And never wanted to be just friends

[Chorus]
(Look at me now)
Come on baby, you need a rock you can't toss out
When you're under the covers
You think you're so strong
Holdin' on to me now
You know why you come around
I'm the rock you can't toss out

I know you want to see me
'Cause you're always at my door
Do you leave 'cause you're afraid of seeing something more

[Chorus outro]
...You know why you come around, look at me now,
I'm the rock you can't toss out

Easy Lyrics – Billy Gilman

You say you made your decision
It's final, you're leavin'
And that's that
You say you're bustin' out of this prison
All this takin' and no givin'
And there's no turnin' back
Did you think I'd hold the door for you
I thought you knew me better than that

[Chorus]
I won't let you turn and walk away
Won't pretend that everything's OK
I won't wish you well
The way you want me to
Sorry, baby I won't make it easy for you

I always admired your conviction
How you stood up for yourself
When things got rough
I had a moment of indecision, there's no forgivin'
And sorry's not enough
You always told me not to give up
So why are you givin' up on us?

[Chorus]
...To vanish into thin air

[Solo]
I won't wish you well the way you want me to
Baby can't you tell that's just too hard to do
Sorry baby I won't make it easy for you

Almost Over (Getting Over You) Lyrics – Billy Gilman

I'm almost goin' to the movies
And hangin' out with my friends
I'm almost seein' somebody new
I'm almost over getting over you

I'm almost comin' to my senses
But still a litle out of my mind
I'm almost happy but still a little blue
I'm almost over getting over you

[Bridge]
I know our love has ended
And we should be apart
But how can you live with
An almost mended broken heart

[Solo]
[Bridge]
I know our loved has ended
And we should be apart
But how can you live with
An almost mended broken heart

I'm almost sleepin' like a baby
I almost make it through the night
I'm ready to accept it's really true
I'm almost over, I can't believe it's over
I'm almost over getting over you

If You Could See Yourself In My Eyes Lyrics – Billy Gilman

You know I see you hiding
In your little corner of the world
Read all the poem you're writing
'Bout a scared and lonely girl
Who doesn't know how much
I need to feel her warm and tender touch

[Chorus]
If you could see yourself through my eyes
You'd know that true love never lies
And you would realize how beautiful you are
If you could see yourself the way I do
You'd know that I loved you
Since the moment that you looked into my eyes

I need to tell you that the sunlight
Is always shining in your hair
I need to tell you nothin' feels right
Unless you're there
And you don't even know
That in my dreams I never let you go

[Chorus]
If you could see yourself through my eyes
You'd know that true love never lies
And you would realize how beautiful you are

Oooh how long has it been
Since somebody told you
You could hold your head up high above the rest
'Cause baby, you're the best

[Solo]
Just let me love you and you'll realize
How beautiful you are
If you could see yourself the way I do
You'd know that I loved you
Since the moment that you looked into
My eyes

I Will Lyrics – Billy Gilman

It amazes me
How I can see
That there is still so much more
After all this time
It's not hard to find
Why I adore you
Your smile, your heart, my friend
You make me all that I am

[Chorus]
If you can tell me how
I could love you more than I do now
I will
And I know without a doubt
I will give you all I have to give
As long as I live
I will

As the years go by
I know that I
Will never leave your side
You're the world to me
And I'll always be
Right here for you
Until the last breath I take
I'm yours, for the rest of my days

[Chorus]
I can't imagine how
I would be now
Without you here with me

[Solo]
[Chorus]
I will give you all I have to give
For as long as I live
I will

Young Love Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Even if the pipes are knockin' and the walls are thin
We keep on rockin' like a cradle in the wind
We ain't got much money but we got enough
We got the power of young love

Who cares if the roof is leakin' and the paint is old
The stove is broken but we'll never be cold
Rubbin' two hearts together to warm up
That's the power of...

[Chorus]
Young love, it's like a runaway train
Young blood, running through our veins
One kiss and I feel the pain
And I love the power of
Young love

We grew up together in our hometown
Got used to seein' each other around
And then one night it happened and it didn't take much
The band played just for us and...

[Chorus]

The old folks complain about the kids today
But they were us just yesterday
All we need is the stars above
Cause we got the power of young lvoe

[Chorus]

Young love, it's a burnin' flame
Young blood can't be contained
Washes over me like the falling rain
And I love the power of young love, young love, young love

We got the power of young love

We Go On Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Deep in the valley of our soul
Tired of worries you can't control
With so many mountains left to climb
Unanswered questions left to find

[Chorus]
We go on
We go on
It's the first lesson learned when you're born
On the wings of angels
We ride out the storm
You and me
We go on

Pull a stranger from the water
And in that moment he's your brother
There's a gift when you receive him
Love is the greatest reason

[Chorus]
We go on
We go on
It's the first lesson learned when you're born
On the wings of angels
We ride out the storm
You and me
We go on

Faith happens when you can't see
Against all odds you believe

[Chorus]
We go on
We go on
It's the first lesson learned when you're born
On the wings of angels
We ride out the storm
You and me
We go on

"Everything And More" (2005)

Hey, Little Suzie (The Cause Of All That) Lyrics – Billy Gilman

I remember her
Shakin' off the dust
She could walk the walk
She was one of us
When she went away
I went down that day
Tryin' to cheer her up
Said you won't be missin' much
And all that I remember
When I think of her back then
Is a fast-talkin' fun-lovin' girl we called a friend

Hey little Suzie just got back
She's still wearing her baseball hat
Struck out twice and came back to sit with me
The game got called on a count of the weather
The rain came down and we huddled together
Thinkin' that life just couldn't get better
And when she walked away I noticed
She was lookin' back
I hope I'm the cause of all that

An accidental touch
Never meant so much
Makes me realize that we're not close enough
She used to talk so loud
Now she's whispering
Trying to draw me in
I'm listening
She was always after somethin'
Now I wonder if it's me
Maybe I'm just dreaming
But I call em' as I see em'

Oh hey little Suzie just got back
She's still wearing her baseball hat
Struck out twice and came back to sit with me
The game got called on a count of the weather
The rain came down and we huddled together
Thinkin' that life just couldn't get better
And when she walked away I noticed
She was lookin' back
I hope that I'm the cause of all that

The look that she shares
When she's playin' with her hair
Tells me where she's coming from
That it's going somewhere
(somewhere, somewhere)

Well hey little Suzie just got back
She's still wearing her baseball hat
Struck out twice and came back to sit with me
The game got called on a count of the weather
The rain came down and we huddled together
I swear no uniform ever looked better
When she walked away I noticed
She was lookin' back
I hope that I'm the cause of all that
(the cause of all that)

Hey little Suzie just got back

Everything And More Lyrics – Billy Gilman

You never looked more beautiful
Than you look tonight
In your eyes I see all I can be
And how you change my life
You held on when I let go
Now all I want is to let you know

Your love is like a river
It runs through my heart and soul
It's deep when I'm thirsty
And warm when I'm cold
And when I feel forgotten
I come running to your shore
And find peace of mind time after time
You give me everything and more

When tomorrow comes
I can face the morning
In a different light
You can change your mind a thousand times
Nothing will ever change mine

Cause your love is like a river
It runs through my heart and soul
It's deep when I'm thirsty
And warm when I'm cold
And when I feel forgotten
I come running to your shore
And find peace of mind time after time
You give me everything and more

The sun will rise and the light will shine
Oh everything will be all right
Oh yes it will (yes it will)

Cause your love is like a river
It runs through my heart and soul
It's deep when I'm thirsty and warm when I'm cold
And when I feel forgotten
I come running to your shore
And find peace of mind time after time
You give me everything and more

You give me everything and more

Peaceable Kingdome Lyrics – Billy Gilman

A leopard with a harmless kid lay down
And not one savage beast was seen to frown
The wolf did with the lamb can dwell in peace
His grim carnivorous nature there did cease
The lion with the fatling awn did move
And a little child was leading them in love

Long ago there was a young painter
Who had a dream that every creature came
And stood assembled by his side
And he painted the sight that had sweetened his night
For the one hundred times before he died
A kid lion and a snake and a child
Wide-eyed and formal and smiling like the sun had stopped
And time had ceased to move
And the wolf and the lamb
Came and ate from his hand
And a man-child was leading them in love

Friend have you seen all the lines and the spaces
The colors that the old painter sees
In the peaceable kingdom that shines in the faces
Of people from more gentle times than these

I find myself adrift these days
And endless maze of ends and ways
And worlds seem so crazy to be here
But look away look away
Back or forward from today
To the visions of either fools or sears

Oh my friend have you seen all the lines and the spaces
The colors that the old painter sees
In the peaceable kingdom that shines in the faces
Of people from more gentle times than these

Such a beautiful place
Full of joy full of grace
It was bathed in our saintly yellow lie
To what learning to know that such things can't be so
He could only believe that they might

Oh my friend have you seen all the lines and the spaces
The colors that the old painter sees
In the peaceable kingdom that shines in the faces
Of people from more gentle times than these

Friend have you seen all the lines and the spaces
The colors that the young painter sees
In the peaceable kingdom that shines in the faces
Of people from more gentle times than these

Coming Home Lyrics – Billy Gilman

When you change the way you look at things
The things you look at change
I can see the world so differently
Seeing things your way
There's a path that's right in front of me
That's been calling me for days
And I know that when you walk with me
It will be for always

You give me everything I have
Everything I need
You are the reason why I believe
All my love
I wanna give to you all my life
I wanna see you in my dreams
You opened up my eyes to a world I have never seen
I'm coming home

When I see the way the early dawn drives the night away
To reveal a world that's holding on to see a brighter day
I can only hope for everyone to feel the way I do
Live their life to love someone the way I love you

You give me everything I have
Everything I need
You are the reason why I believe
All my love
I wanna give to you all my life
I wanna see you in my dreams
You opened up my eyes to a world I have never seen
For always I will remain faithful to the faith you have in me
Can't believe how much I have grown with you
I'm finally coming home

Through you I see the light that will take me home
All the days of my life

For always I will remain faithful to the faith you have in me
Can't believe how much I have grown with you
I'm finally coming home

I'm coming home

Is Anybody Out There Lyrics – Billy Gilman

When the thunder came
With our flag in flames
Everybody change the color
When the night became so dark with pain
Everyone became a brother
I came across the universe
And I don't know why
I came across the universe
To hear a soldier cry

Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening to my prayer?
Is anybody out there?
If you can hear me please take me out of here
Is anybody out there?
Is anybody out there?
Is anybody out there?

And the morning light makes you wonder why
You were ever born to see it
When your body's cold it's not the story told
To the brave young souls who believe it
They came across the battlefield
And they don't know why
They came across the universe
To hear a solider cry

Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening to my prayer?
Is anybody out there?
If you can hear me please take me out of here
Is anybody listening?
Is anybody out there?

We're not his friends
Though he fears the end
And he'll die for them if he had to
Rise again fall again
In the end I will come to the rescue

Oh is anybody out there?

Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening to my prayers?
Is anybody out there?
If you can hear me please take me out of here
Is anybody listening?
Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening?
Is anybody listening?
Is anybody out there?

When the night became so dark with pain
Everyone became a brother

Looked Into The Wings Lyrics – Billy Gilman

I could feel you reaching out for me before we ever touched
And I knew you would always be someone I could trust
I felt your presence through the good times and the bad
You kept the faith you always had

When you saw me getting nowhere
Trying to find a new direction
For a stubborn little voice that said
I didn't have a prayer

When my star began to fade
And I found the stage was bare
I looked into the wings and you were there

I felt like I was falling
Falling over the edge
And in this new altitude
I couldn't catch my breath
I turned my face to heaven
And it was then I realized
My guardian angel was here by my side

When you saw me getting nowhere
Trying to find a new direction
For that stubborn little voice that said
I didn't have a prayer

When my star began to fade
And I found the stage was bare
I looked into the wings and you were there

This song belongs to you
And you know every word is true
I always knew that I'd be lost without you

When my star began to fade
And I found the stage was bare
I looked into the wings
I looked into the wing
I looked into the wings
And you were there

Three Words, Two Hearts, One Kiss Lyrics – Billy Gilman

For a straight A student who knows so much
You don't know nothin' bout love
Well you and me make history
There's no two hearts like us
Well go on, pretend, you can't figure it out
Well if there's any doubt

Let me spell it out for you honey
You don't want to miss
The perfect combination of
Three words, two hearts, one kiss
Three words, two hearts, one kiss

I know where I'm supposed to be
A heartbeats right on time
I don't know why you're holding back
But you're the first in line
We better catch this train waiting on the tracks
Cause it might not come back

Let me spell it out for you honey
You don't want to miss
The perfect combination of
Three words, two hearts, one kiss

Three words, that's it, I love you
Two hearts that beat as one

Oh let me spell it out for you honey
You don't want to miss
The perfect combination of
Three words, two hearts, one kiss

The perfect combination of
Three words, two hearts

Three words, two hearts, one kiss

Pray For Him Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Knocked on his door last night
He should have been there
I waited till 6pm
Lord I'm worrying again
Said he messed up something real bad
Whatever it is I'll be there

I'll pray for him
Hope he's all right
Feels like he's all alone
Against the world tonight
But he's gone away Lord
Help me pray for him

Told him he's got to believe
There's a lot to believe in
Doesn't think he's good enough
Says it doesn't matter much
Well if I were walking in his shoes
He'd be there for me
He'd know what to do

I'll pray for him
Hope he's all right
Feels like he's all alone against the world tonight
But he's gone away Lord
Help me pray for him

Well I've done everything I can do
I leave it in your hands
Lord it's up to you

I'll pray for him
Hope he's all right
Feels like he's all alone against the world tonight
But he's gone away Lord
Help me pray for him

Oh pray for him
Hope he's all right
Feels like he's all alone against the world tonight
But he's gone away Lord
Help me pray Lord
For he's gone away Lord
Help me pray for him

I'm Not Me Anymore Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Is this my bed?
What's going on in my head?
I feel so different today

I have this image of you
My freedom, my courage, the strength I never knew
I found the answer through you
Discover the glory of living through you
You taught me so much
Your words lift me up

I'm not me anymore
I'm all of us and a part of you
I'm not me anymore
I am here for you
With every beat of my heart
I come closer to you

I have this vision of you
My kindness, my faith I attribute to you
I share my secrets with you
You taught me forgiveness with all that you do
To have someone to trust
Can change you so much

And I'm not me anymore
I'm all of us and a part of you
I'm not me anymore
Well I am here for you
With every beat of my heart
I come closer to you

Closer than I've ever been
To knowing your love never ends
And even when my heart is aching
Knowing that you'll take me in and love me again

I'm not me anymore
I'm all of us and a part of you
I'm not me anymore
Well I am here for you
With every beat of my heart
I come closer to you

Missed You On Sunday Lyrics – Billy Gilman

You're flying loose and I'm losing ground with you
Want you to stay cause I can't follow you
You know I'll wait forever if you want me to
It's not your talkin I know it's who you're talking to

Missed you on Sunday cause you weren't there
Saw you on Monday with purple hair
No matter what you do you'll find me there
Missing you on Sunday
Our number one day
Yeah I'm missing the answer to my prayers

I see you walking through the danger zone
That's not the way I used to walk you home
Don't wanna hold you back
I'd let you go alone
And pray that someday you'll come back on your own

Missed you on Sunday cause you weren't there
I saw you on Monday with purple hair
No matter what you do you'll find me there
Missing you on Sunday
Our number one day
Yeah I'm missing the answers to my prayers

Some people say I'm such a fool to wait for you
But I can't close the gates through the heaven we once knew
Life's such a mystery
Always been clear to me
When you're around I see the sun come shining through

No matter what you do you'll find me there
Missing you on Sunday
Our number one day
Yeah I'm missing the answer to my -
I missed you on Sunday cause you weren't there
I saw you on Monday with purple hair
No matter what you do you'll find me there
Missing you on Sunday
Our number one day
Yeah I'm missing the answers to my prayers

Something 'Bout Heaven Lyrics – Billy Gilman

When I'm walkin' by myself
Along the path that I should follow
I can see one reason why
I'm happy I can face tomorrow
No ones gonna change my mind
I'm gonna let my spirits climb
As high as I can go I feel this way because I know

There's something 'bout heaven
That brings you down to Earth
Here in the moment with chapter and verse
Oh we talk about living life for all it's worth
It's heaven on Earth sharing my life with you

Suddenly I'm in a place
I've never been and see no danger
All you said was walk with me
And you will never be a stranger
All the world is here for me
I opened up my eyes to see it
That's the way I see it
And its all because of you

Oh there's something 'bout heaven
That brings you down to Earth
Here in the moment with chapter and verse
Oh we talk about livin' life for all its worth
It's heaven on Earth sharing my life with you

Oh it's heaven on Earth (on Earth)
Sharing my life with you

I am free cause I can see so far beyond the here and now
Knowing heaven waits for me just clears it up for me somehow
Everything I see and hear with everything you touch it's clear
You are with me everywhere you never let me down

Cause there's something bout heaven
That brings you down to Earth
Here in the moment with chapter and verse
Oh it's all about living life for all its worth
It's heaven on Earth sharing my life with you

Oh there's something 'bout heaven
Oh here in the moment
(sharing my life with you)

Awaken The Music Lyrics – Billy Gilman

There was always the voice of an angel
In the sweet lullaby of my dreams
Who would sing me a song made in heaven
That would awaken the music in me
You gave my life such meaning
Shined light upon my soul
And you were always there to hold

When I come to the end of tomorrows
And I look back on all of my days
I imagine I'm here beside you
And we're talking our usual way

And we will dance
We will sing
Still amazed by everything
And we will dance
And we will sing
We're still amazed by everything
The simple joys that life can bring
The songs you taught me how to sing
And yes we will sing them again
In my heart they'll never end

When I'm lost I pray that I can find you
When the darkness seems to hide the light
When I'm up I know I'm flying with you
All the things I love are all because of you
Because of you

You were always the one with the courage
Taught me all that I needed to know
When I needed a shoulder to cry on
You would reach out a hand I could hold
Your strength and all your kindness
Became a part of me
And I would always try to be
I'll be the me you hoped I'd always be

We will dance
We will sing
Still amazed by everything
And we will dance
And we will sing
We're still amazed by everything
The simple joys that life can bring
The songs you taught me how to sing

And yes we will sing them again
In my heart they'll never end

In your eyes I always see my future
In your smile I see the reason for my ways
In your voice I know the truth has meaning
When you sing to me I hear your heart speak to me

There was always the voice of an angel
In the sweet lullaby of my dreams
Who would sing me a song made in heaven
That would awaken the music in me
(awaken the music, awaken the music)

The music in me

For Our World Lyrics – Billy Gilman

We need to stop, just stop
Stop for a moment
Before anybody says
or does anything
That may hurt anyone else

We need to be silent, just silent
Silent for a moment
Before we forever lose the
blessing of songs
That grow in our hearts

We need to notice, just notice
Notice for a moment
Before the future slips away
into ashes and dust of humility

Sotp, be silent, and notice
In so many ways, we are the same
Our differences are unique treasures

We have, we are, a mosaic of gifts
To nurture, to offer, to accept
We need to be, just be
Be for a moment

Kind and gentle,
innocent and trusting
Like children and lambs
Never judging or vengeful
Like the judging and the vengeful

And now, let us pray
Differently, yet together
Before there is no earth, no life
No chance for peace
Peace for our world
For our world
For our world

About Things That Matter Lyrics – Billy Gilman

It matters that the workd knows
We must celebrate the gift of life
Everyday in some way
we must always remember to play after every storm
All children are truly blessed
With the innocent gifts of gentleness, trust, and compassion
To guide the wisdom of the grown-ups
We all have a song in our heart
that inspires us in good times
and hard times
If we take the time to listen

[Chorus:]
It matters, it matters, oh, it matters that the world knows

Our senses help discover the hidden and non-hidden
Enchantment in life, if we use them
We must carefully choose our words and wants
Or we could forever hurt others
with these dangerous weapons
Strength and calue of all things created
Must be measured by character and commitment
Rather than by might
and by wealth

[Repeat Chorus]

We must head the lessons of everyday life
Through the celebration of children and heartsongs,
senses and words
Or we could lose in our journey
to the future

It matters

A person by my name and being existed
With a strong spirit and an eternam mindset
To become a peacemaker for all
By sharing the things that really matter.

Morning Gift Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Don't you love the mornings
When you go outside and there on the ground
Is a fresh perfect green leaf
A leaf floating from the quiet summer trees
just resting on the grass and waiting to be discovered

Touch the treasure
And pick it up gently
And feel the excitement
Of a new leaf with no tears
No marks no holes
It is the sign of healing and future

Don't you just love the mornings
When you're reminded of the special gifts of life

I Am / Shades Of Life Lyrics – Billy Gilman

I am black, I am white
I am all skins in between
I am young, I am old
I am each age that has been
I am scrawny, I am well fed
I am starving for attention
I am famous, I am cryptic
I am hardly worth the mention
I am short, I am height
I am any frame or stature
I am smart, I am challenged
I am striving for a future

[Chorus:]
The color of sky
Is blues and grays
The color of earth
Is greens and browns
The color of hope
Is rainbows and purple
And the color of peace
Is people together
Shades of life
I am

I am able, I am weak
I am some strength, I am none
I am being, I am thought
I am all things, said and done
I am born, I am died
I am dust of humble roots
I am grace, I am pain
I am labor of wined fruits
I am slave, I am free
I am bonded to my life
I am rich, I am poor
I am wealth amid strife

[Repeat Chorus]

I am shadow, I am glory
I am hiding from my shame
I am hero, I am loser
I am yearning for a name
I am empty, I am proud
I am seeking my tomorrow
I am growing, I am fading
I am hope amid the sorrow
I am certain, I am doubtful
I am desperate for solutions
I am leader, I am student
I am fate and evolutions

I am spirit, I am voice
I am memory, not recalled
I am chance, I am cause
I am effort blocked and walled
I am hymn, I am heard
I am reasoned without rhymes
I am past, I am nearing
I am present in all times
I am many, I am no one
I am seasoned by each being
I am me, I am you
I am all-souls now decreeing

[Repeat Chorus]

It Happened Anyway Lyrics – Billy Gilman

When Jamie died
And I didn't understand
The eternity of my sadness
I wished I could have prevented it

When I rest in bed
Dream about how I could have
Lived and played with my brother
How I wished that I could have saved him

If wishing could bring him back
He'd be here with me today
But then, I remember...
It happened anyway

When I look at pictures
And imagine what he would be like
Now a dozen years old
I wish I could have saved him from agelessness

If crying could bring him back
He'd be here with me today
But then I remember...
It happened anyway

When I think of why and how
He was with us and left us
I wished I could have prevented it
And stopped his death, and saved him from
Never needing breath for birthday candles...
For birthday candles

If wishing could bring him back
He'd be here with me today
But then I remember...

When Jamie died I didn't understand
Oh, but then I remember
It happened anyway
It happened anyway
It happened anyway

Possession Lyrics – Billy Gilman

One of my greatest fears is "It."
I can't touch "it," but I can feel "it."
It does not have a taste or smell,
But I can hear it in my spirit

[Chorus:]
It is deep inside of me,
It makes me fear my memory
One day I'll live peacefully,
Without the fear of "It"

It is something I can't see
It can never possess me
It always tries to take control
I can defeat it if I believe it

[Repeat Chorus]

It keeps running through my mind,
I have to fight it time and time
And time and time and time
And time again...

[Repeat Chorus]

The more I understand about it
The less my world revolves around it
Then I can just live out my life
Without the fear of "it."

Songs Of The Wind Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Listen to the wind
If you listen carefully
You will hear soft notes
listen with your mind
Listen with your heart
You will hear a Heartsongs
A soft relaxing song
That reminds... you of

Peace and harmony
Harmony and love
Peace and harmony and love

If you hear this song
Always remember it
For if you do
You can teach it
To other people too
And they will forever
Forever they'll remember
Their Heartsongs

Of harmony
Harmony and love
Peace and harmony and love

Listen to the wind
If you listen carefully
You will hear soft notes
Listen with your mind
Listen with your heart
You will hear a Heartsong
A soft relaxing of the wind

Making Real Sense Of The Senses Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Our eyes are for looking at things
But they are also for crying
When we are very happy or cery sad

Our ears are for listening
But so are our hearts
So are our hearts

Our noses are for smelling food
But also the wind and the grass and
If we try very hard, butterflies

Our hands are for feeling
But also for hugging and touching so gently

Our mouths and tongues are for tasting
But also for saying words, like
"I love you," and
"Thank you, God, for all of these things."

Gift Of Color Lyrics – Billy Gilman

[Chorus:]
Color, the gift of color
Is so beautiful
Color, the gift of color
Is so natural
Color, the gift of color
Makes the world so right
Color, the gift of color
Gonna paint your world tonight

Thank you for the colors of the rainbow
Thank you for sharing these colors with all the fish
And all the birds and all the flowers
And all that you have given us
I want to thank you

[Repeat Chorus]

And thank you
For the colors of the
Heaven-in-the-earth
And for sharing these colors
In the people of the world
You give us color
As a gift, God

[Repeat Chorus]

And thank you
For the colors of the
Heaven-in-the-earth
And the Heaven-in-the-sky
And for sharing these colors
In the people of the world
You give us color
As a gift, God

[Repeat Chorus]

I Could... If They Would Lyrics – Billy Gilman

If they would find a cure when I'm a kid
I could ride a bike and sail on rollerblades, and
I could go on really long nature hikes

If they would find a cure when I'm a teenager
I could earn my license and drive a car, and
I could dance every dance at my senior prom

If they would find a cure when
I'm a young adult
I could travel around the world and teach peace, and
I could marry and have children of my own

I could... if they would
I could... if they would

If they would find a cure when
I'm grown old
I could visit exotic places and appreciate culture
And proudly share pictures of my grandchildren

If they would find a cure when
I'm alive
I could live each day without pain and machines, and
I could celebrate the biggest thank you of life ever

I could... if they would
I could... if they would

If they would find a cure when
I'm buried into heaven
I could still celebrate with my brothers and sister there, and
I could still be happy knowing that I, knowing that I, was a part of the effort

About Memories Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Memories are a great gift
Memories are given to us by God
As a keepsake and a treasure
Memories allow us to call upon the past

Memories can teach us
About what things are good to repeat
Memories they warn us
About what things should never
Be allowed to happen again

Memories are a gift of the past
That we hold in the present
To create what can be a great future
Treasure and keep memories
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life

Memories offer us opportunities
To laugh, or to cry
Memories offer us opportunities
To smile, or to reminisce

Memories can teach us
About what things are good to repeat
Memories they warn us
About what things should never
Be allowed to happen again

Memories are a gift of the past
That we hold in the present
To create what can be a great future
Treasure and keep memories
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life

If we oupen our mind
Memories allow and offer
And help and support
And teach and warn about life

Memories can teach us
About what things are good to repeat
Memories they warn us
About what things should never
Be allowed to happen again

Memories are a gift of the past
That we hold in the present
To create what can be a great future
Treasure and keep memories
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life

About Watches Lyrics – Billy Gilman

I like wearing watches
Lots and lots of watches
For two reasons
First
If they are all set a little different
If they are all set a little different
No one's ever too late
Or too early or right on time
They just "are"
Watches, watches

[Chorus:]
No one's ever too late
Or too early or right on time
They just "are"
No one's ever too late
Or too early or right on time
They just "are"
No one's ever too late
Or too early or right on time
They just "are"
They just are, they just are

I like wearing watches
Lots and lots of watches
For two reasons
Second reason,
With all these watches on me
It's like having "all the time in the world"
And never having to think about the end of time
Or about dying

[Repeat Chorus]

With all these watches on me
It's like having "all the time in the world"
And never having to think about the end of time
Or about dying

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

I like wearing watches

She's My Girl Lyrics – Billy Gilman

All the guys have gone blind from starin'
My baby, she ain't even carin'
And they're crazy if they think I'm sharin'
'Cause I know what they're after
And nobody else can have her 'cause she's

My girl, a walkin' talkin' angel baby
My girl, not a minute goes by when she ain't looking pretty
My girl, a 24-7 piece of heaven
God never made another in this world
Quite like my girl

Oh, oh, quite like my girl

Her eyes are shining like big blue diamonds
It's a cukoo kind of love, ain't no denying
When I kiss her lips, I feel like flying
Man, she's something else
And I've got her all to myself 'cause she's

My girl, a walkin' talkin' angel baby
My girl, not a minute goes by when she ain't looking pretty
My girl, a 24-7 piece of heaven
God never made another in this world
Quite like my girl

The way she moves, the way she grooves
You know she drives me wild with her wild-child smile
Planets align when she's holdin' me tight
Blowing my mind, it's such a ride
I can't get enough

My girl, a walkin' talkin' angel baby
My girl, not a minute goes by when she ain't looking pretty
My girl, a 24-7 piece of heaven
God never made another in this world
Quite like my girl

Oh oh, quite like my girl
Oh yeah, she's lookin' pretty

My girl, a walkin' talkin' angel baby
My girl
My girl, a walkin' talkin' angel baby
My girl

Our First Kiss Lyrics – Billy Gilman

The last thing on my mind
When I closed my eyes
Oooo Oooo Oooo my my
Is our first kiss

It might've been rainin'
It might've been sunny,
It could've been your house
It might've been Monday

The truth is I'm clueless
A little bit hazy
But when I remember
I can almost taste it

The last thing on my mind
When I closed my eyes
Ooo Ooo Ooo my my
Is our first kiss
Shooby do bob bob

A tiny bit nervous
I'd never been kissed
Did you open your eyes?
Cause I never did

I couldn't say nothin'
As I let it sink it,
I was just waiting to kiss you again!

The last thing on my mind
When I closed my eyes
Yeah, Ooo Ooo Ooo my my
Is our first kiss
Shooby do bob bob
aaa yeah yeah

The first thing on my mind
When I opened my eyes
Baby, Ooo Ooo Ooo my my
That's as far as it gets
Shooby do bob bob
aaa yeah yeah

The last thing on my mind
When I closed my eyes
Baby,Ooo Ooo Ooo my my
Is our first kiss
Shooby do bob bob
Yeah, yeah, yeah

The first thing on my mind
When I opened my eyes
Yeah, Ooo Ooo Ooo my my
That's as far as it gets
Shooby do bob bob
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Elisabeth Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Namesake to Elisabeth
Her daddy's pride and joy
Baptized in her mama's tears soon after she was born
'Cause the doctor said she'd never live
To see her sweet sixteen
It's a miracle she beat those odds
And there's still no promise
She will see tomorrow
It makes me wonder
How life can give someone so much and take so much away

Oh, Elisabeth
You're a teacher you're a saint
And I'm so glad you came to us
Elisabeth, you make the world a better place
With the kindness of your smile and your love
And your beauty will live on and on
Elisabeth

She might not ever marry
Or hold a baby of her own
Things we all take for granted
Are the things she may never know
But she believes there's always hope
And that's all she really has
So she walks through life with passion and
With dignity and class

And when she cries, she cries in silence
But never for herself
She cries for everybody else, for everybody else

Oh, Elisabeth
You're a teacher you're a saint
And I'm so glad you came to us
Elisabeth, you make the world a better place
With the kindness of your smile and your love
And your beauty will live on and on
Elisabeth

And I'm so glad you came to us
Elisabeth, you make the world a better place
With the kindness of your smile and your love
And your beauty will live on and on

I've Got To Make It To Summer Lyrics – Billy Gilman

My heart skips a beat when I watch her go by
I don't know if she knows if I'm even alive
I'd love to ask her out, but there's too many people around

I've got to make it to summer
I want to drift on that ocean-blue in her eyes
On a blanket of sand
Holding her hand
While the lonely people go by

I've got to make it to summer
I want to tell her the things that I'm feeling inside
And if I get the chance, I know I'm gonna make her mine
Yeah

I'm stuck in my room while the snow starts to fall
I'm lost in a beach poster there on my wall
I'd love to see her there with the golden sun in her hair

I've got to make it to summer
I want to drift on that ocean-blue in her eyes
On a blanket of sand
Holding her hand
While the lonely people go by

I've got to make it to summer
I want to tell her the things that I'm feeling inside
And if I get the chance, I know I'm gonna make her mine
Yeah

Ooh

I've got to make it to summer
I want to drift on that ocean-blue in her eyes
On a blanket of sand
Holding her hand
While the lonely people go by

I've got to make it to summer
I want to tell her the things that I'm feeling inside
And if I get the chance, I know I'm gonna make her mine

And if I get the chance, I know I'm gonna make her mine
Ooh, yeah

My Time On Earth Lyrics – Billy Gilman

My time on Earth
Long as it seems
Is just a moment
In the grande scheme of things

A short refrain
Of life's endless song
Sung only once
And then we're gone

My time on Earth
Each breath I breathe
Is one more chance to share my love
With those around me

We come and go
Like shooting stars
The truth be known,
That's all we are

The more that I know
The more I can see
The older I grow
The more I believe
It's not the length of the life
Or the depth of the grave
In the end we'll be measured
By the love that we gave

So my time on Earth
On fate depends
But all that happens
In the space we're meant to live

Depends on me
And choices I face
For better or worse
They're mine to make

The more that I know
The more I can see
The older I grow
The more I believe
It's not the length of the life
Or the depth of the grave
In the end we'll be measured
By the love that we gave

So my time on Earth
Will be well spent
And when I leave this world
I'll leave with no regrets

I'll live and love
For all its worth
'Till I live out
My time on Earth

'Till I live out my time on Earth

You Don't, You Won't Lyrics – Billy Gilman

You don't, you won't
No way I say
You didn't, you doesn't
You isn't, you wasn't
You wouldn't, you couldn't
You oughtn't, you shouldn't
Love nobody but me

You're mine, not his
You are, you is
I mean it, I seen it
I did it, I done it
I do, you knew
You can't, you shan't
Love nobody but me

That's all, that's it
I ain't jealous of the fellas
That you hang around with
Don't pay no mind
But I'm telling you one more time

You don't, you won't
No way I say
You didn't, you doesn't
You isn't, you wasn't
You wouldn't, you couldn't
You oughtn't, you shouldn't
Love nobody but me

That's all, that's right
I ain't waitin', ain't fakin'
No maybes no mights
My heart don't lie
But I'm telling you one more time

You don't, you won't
No way I say
You didn't, you doesn't
You isn't, you wasn't
You wouldn't, you couldn't
You oughtn't, you shouldn't
Love nobody but me

You're mine, not his
You are, you is
I mean it, I seen it
I did it, I done it
I do, you knew
You can't, you shan't
Love nobody but me
Love nobody but me
Love nobody but me

You don't, no way
You didn't, you doesn't
You isn't, you wasn't
You couldn't, you wouldn't
Love nobody but me

You're mine, you are
I mean, I seen it
I did it, I done it
You knew you shouldn't
Love nobody but me
Love nobody but me
Love nobody but me

She's Everything You Want Lyrics – Billy Gilman

Can't you hear your heart it's talking to your brain
A little voice inside you keeps calling out her name
You can only lose if
You start to hesitate

So why ignore an open door
Showing you the way

A heart can't shake it
When it feels that rush
A heart can't fake it
When it needs that touch
A magic potion, locomotion
You can't ever stop
A heart can't take it when
She's everything you want

You can't stop your feet from
Walking to her door
Everytime you leave her
You keep on wanting more
You think you're in control but
Who're you trying to kid

When you're on your knees, begging please
Give me one more kiss

A heart can't shake it
When it feels that rush
A heart can't fake it
When it needs that touch
A magic potion, locomotion
You can't ever stop
A heart can't take it when
She's everything you want

She's everything, she's everything, she's everything you need
She's everything, she's everything, she's all you ever dreamed
Can't play it cool, acting like a fool
When you're trying to deny
You'd do anything, everything
To be by her side

A heart can't shake it
When it feels that rush
A heart can't fake it
When it needs that touch
A magic potion, locomotion
You can't ever stop
Well a heart can't take it when
She's everything you want

A heart can't take it when
She's everything you want

God's Alive And Well Lyrics – Billy Gilman

When I see the stars hang in the sky, oh
When I watch a bird spread its wings and fly
And each time I hear the wind blow through the trees, oh
With every breath of air that I breath
All the things I can't see
Still inside I believe

In a baby's laugh
In a mother's eyes
Little miracles around us
Every day of our lives
The way the sun lights up the dark
The hope that I feel in my heart
And as far as I can tell
God's alive and well
Yeah, God's alive and well

Just like the Earth cradles the moon, oh
How that far-away sun still makes the flowers bloom
And the joy only heaven can bring to a soul, oh
If trouble comes, I am safe in the hands
'Cause I know there's a plan
My heart understands

In a baby's laugh
In a mother's eye's
Little miracles around us
Every day of our lives
The way the sun lights up the dark
The hope that I feel in my heart
And as far as I can tell
God's alive and well
Yeah, God's alive and well

Call it a little bit of luck
Or just a simple twist of fate
Oh, we get swept up in the arms
You can feel it every day

In a baby's laugh
In a mother's eyes
Little miracles around us
Every day of our lives
The way the sun lights up the dark
The hope that I feel in my heart
And as far as I can tell

Yes, as far as I can tell
God's alive and well
Yeah, God's alive and well

As far as I can tell
God's alive and well

The Woman In My Life Lyrics – Billy Gilman

The woman in my life wakes me up in the morning
With a gentle touch
She kisses me and whispers "darling
This day was made for us"

The woman in my life has a way of smiling
That can turn a gray sky blue
It's just like her without trying
To make the whole world new

And she's there when I need her
My guardian angel
In the dark I can see her
Here by my side

The woman in my life catches me when I've fallen
And holds me like a baby when I'm hurt
No matter how high I climb
She guides me safely back to Earth

And she's there when I need her
My guardian angel
In the dark I can see her
Here by my side

The woman in my life says I'm the one she prayed for
And all she's ever gonna need
But she's the one my heart was made for
And that's the way it's always gonna be

Now I understand just why my dad
Is crazy 'bout the woman in my life

Almost Love Lyrics – Billy Gilman

What am I going to get you girl
I wanna buy you the whole wide world
All I got is a letter jacket and a mood ring

Sometimes I see you standing in the hall
and I can't say a thing at all
Deep inside I'm writing you poetry

Yes, I am

I almost love you
I can almost feel your kiss
Almost promise my heart
But my promise is more like a wish
Oh, I don't know what all this means
But girl I can't get you out of my dreams
Everytime that we get close
It's almost

Yesterday I saw you on the hood of a car
With an older guy, he was playing his guitar
You gave him your smile, I could have cried but I just froze

Should I stand up to him
Should I pick a fight
Should I get you to run away with me tonight

I don't know how to get there
Or where we'd go
Don't you know

I almost love you
I can almost feel your kiss
Almost promise my heart
But my promise is more like a wish
Oh, I don't know what all this means
But girl I can't get you out of my dreams
Everytime that we get close
It's almost

Love, it's almost the right stuff
It's almost the flight of a pure white dove
It's almost true love

I almost love you
I can almost feel your kiss
Almost promise my heart
But my promise is more like a wish
Oh, I don't know what all this means
But girl I can't get you out of my dreams
Everytime that we get close
It's almost

Love, it's almost the right stuff
It's almost the flight of a pure white dove
It's almost true love

It's almost true love
It's almost the right stuff
It's almost the flight of a pure white dove
It's almost true love, yeah
