Laughing

days disappear with the passage of time
and i have plenty of nothing to do.
i know i have employment to find
but all i can think about is you.
i know i have lots of bills to pay
and there is food to buy and eat
but I can't seem to start my day
without you tickling my my feet.

and this makes me want to laugh,
but i really just want to cry.
bad things seem to happen to me,
but all i want to know is why?
then i see myself in the mirror,
and the only thing i can do is try.

when we went to the beach on the sea,
we left footprints in the hot sand.
it was the place I wanted to be
while you held tight to my hand.
we waded in the water  up to our knees
and a big wave  knocked you down.
And that was funny time to me,
but now you are not around.

and this makes me want to laugh,
but i really just want to cry.
bad things seem to happen to me,
but all i want to know is why?
then i see myself in the mirror,
and the only thing i can do is try.

i remember at the company party,
when i asked you to dance.
my heart was not ever sorry 
for the night filled with romance.
you held me close in your arms,
like you never wanted to let go.
i was enchanted by your charms.
you let your love for me flow.

One of a Kind

Old habits are hard to break,
and you are always on my mind.
I"ve searched all over and know
that you are one of a kind.

You're one of a kind,
in a class by yourself.
If I were your teacher,
books stay on the shelf.
I'd teach you what
you need to know
all by myself.

Old habits are hard to break,
and you are always on my mind.
I"ve searched all over and know
that you are one of a kind.

You're one of a kind,
in a class by yourself.
On the first of April,
I'd  be your fool, and
I'd be your favorite
subject in  school.
In September, I'd
remember that  you1re
the only one for me.
By December, you would
have a diamond ring.

Old habits are hard to break,
and you are always on my mind.
I've searched all over and know
that you are one of a kind.

All for You

I took a look at you,
and then held your hand.
With a big smile,
I promised to be your man.
And I do it all for you.

(Chorus)
I do it all for you,
since you are the only one.
I do it all for you,
since you have come
into my world and set me free.
Now I believe in love.

You wanted a rock,
a steady place to land.
Like a  genie,
your wish is my command.
And I do it all for you.

repeat chorus

You had some ideas,
and you had secrets to share.
No one was listening.
So just call me, I'll be there.
And I do it all for you.

 repeat chorus

Roses and candy
will never win your heart.
Love and patience
are the only places to start.
And I do it all for you.

I do it all for you,
since you are the only one.
I do it all for you,
since you have come
into my world and set me free.
Now I believe in love.
Now I believe in love.

The Sun Will Rise and Set on our Love

The sun will rise and set on our love,
and it's light will make us shine.
When the light goes down at night,
I will want your body next to mine.

It's going to take a little more time,
but I know it won1t be much longer.
Our feelings for each other will
have the chance to get stronger.
We1ll get back together again,
and I'll spend everyday with you.
Each day will be an adventure,
and each morning will be new.

The sun will rise and set on our love,
and it's light will make us shine.
When the light goes down at night,
I will want your body next to mine.

Now that we're in the same place,
we can have a heart  to heart talk.
We can go in  the waves by the sea
and hold each other close as we walk.
We can be free to express our dreams,
and how they can become real.
There will be no secrets between us
now, and  we can say how we feel.

The sun will rise and set on our love,
and it's light will make us shine.
When the light goes down tonight,
I will feel your body next to mine.
