Some Kind Of Miracle by Kelly Clarkson

Prayed for an angel
To come in the night
Shine some sweet light on me
Found only strangers
Then you came to me

Just when i givin up
You gave me love
My world was tumblin down
You turned it around, baby

You’re some kind of miracle
Ohhhhhh, You, You, Youuuuu are
You’re a miracle to me

Sweet revelation
That look in your eyes
Your touch in the night
I found the sweetest salvation
In your arms baby

When there’s no mornin sun
Your tender love
Came and just lifted me up
Look what you’ve done baby

You, you’re some kind of miracle
Ohh, you, you, you are
You’re a miracle to me

You brought joy to my heart
I found love in your arms
See what you’ve done to me
You set my soul so free
You came and you gave me the love that i need

Oh you, you’re some kind of miracle
You, you are
You’re a miracle
A miracle to me
Baby you are
Ohh, a miracle to me

Everything I Do I Do It For You-Alvin & the Chipmunks

Piece by Piece by Kelly Clarkson

And all I remember is your back
Walking towards the airport, leaving us all in your past
I traveled fifteen hundred miles to see you
Begged you to want me, but you didn’t want to

But piece by piece, he collected me
Up off the ground, where you abandoned things and
Piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me
Six years old and you know, he never walks away
He never asks for money, he takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father could stay

And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself and now you want to come back
But your love, it isn’t free, it has to be earned
Back then I didn’t have anything you needed so I was worthless

But piece by piece, he collected me
Up off the ground, where you abandoned things and
Piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me
Six years old and you know, he never walks away
He never asks for money, he takes care of me
Cause he loves me
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father could stay

Piece by piece [x6]

Piece by piece I fell far from the tree
I will never leave her like you left me
And she will never have to wonder her worth
Because unlike you I’m going to put her first
And you know, he’ll never walk away,
He’ll never break her heart
He’ll take care of things, he’ll love her
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father should be great

Piece by piece [x3]

Cry by Kelly Clarkson

The reason why I am putting this song on here is becasue even though it is a sad love song, the power of Kelly Clarkson’s voice is truly inspirational. I wish I could sing like that. :)

If anyone asks
I’ll tell them we both just moved on
When people all stare
I’ll pretend that I don’t hear them talk
Whenever I see you I’ll swallow my pride and bite my tongue
Pretend I’m okay with it all
Act like there’s nothing wrong

[Chorus]
Is it over yet
Can I open my eyes
Is this as hard as it gets
Is this what it feels like to really cry
Cry

If anyone asks
I’ll tell them we just grew apart
What do I care if they believe me or not
Whenever I feel your memory is breaking my heart
I’ll pretend I’m okay with it all
Act like there’s nothing wrong

[Chorus]

I’m talking in circles
I’m lying, they know it
Why won’t this just all go away

[Chorus]

Taking You Home by Don Henley

I had a good life
Before you came
I had my friends and my freedom
I had my name
Still there was sorrow and emptiness
‘Til you made me glad
Oh, in this love I found strength I never knew I had

And this love
Is like nothing I have ever known
Take my hand, love
I’m taking you home
I’m taking you home

There were days, lonely days
When the world wouldn’t throw me a crumb
But I kept on believing
That this day would come

And this love
Is like nothing I have ever known
Take my hand, love
I’m taking you home
I’m taking you-home
Where we can be with the ones who really care
Home, where we can grow together
Keep you in my heart forever

And this love
Is like nothing I have ever known
Take my hand, love
I’m taking you home
Taking you home

And this love
Is like nothing I have ever known
Take my hand, love
I’m taking you home
I’m taking you home

True Believers by Darius Rucker

Church bells ringing on our wedding day
Climbed in that limo and rode away
Guess you’ll always hear some people say,
Man, they’re never gonna make it.We settled in and we settled down
In this quiet little seaside town
You are the rock I built my world around
And life will never break it

We are one heartbeat in the darkness
We are one lasting answered prayer
We are one unbroken promise
And we are two, true believers

It wasn’t easy getting here today
Sometimes you stumbled or I lost my way
But every roadblock was a chance to say;
Take my hand I’m here beside you.

We worked and made it through the toughest parts
Now every day is another chance to start
To look around and see where we are
It’s where we were trying to get to

We are one heartbeat in the darkness
We are one lasting answered prayer
We are one unbroken promise
And we are two, true believers

We are one before our God in Heaven
Oh, we are one road when the going gets rough
We are one now and forever
We are one name, one life, one flame

We are one heartbeat in the darkness
We are one lasting answered prayer
We are one unbroken promise
And we are two, true believers
We are two, true believers

Everything I Do I Do It For You-Bryan Adams & Celine Dion

I was listening to this song covered by the Chipmunks and I discovered Bryan Adams singing it with Celine Dion. They are my two favorite artists. It is a beautiful cover, and since its my favorite song, here it is…..

Forever Road by Darius Rucker

I heard every word you said
I’m tryin’ hard to understand
Exactly what it is you need from me

Baby I apologize I never meant to make you cry
But there ain’t no doubt, we can work it out, yeah
‘Cause I’m gonna be around

Don’t worry baby, I ain’t no maybe
Rain or shine this love of mine is for you
Let my arms remind you I’ll always be beside you
Holdin’ on until this ride is through
So away we go down that forever road

Baby as our lives unfold there’s no tellin’ where we’ll go
But as far as I can see it’ll be you and me
Just the way it’s supposed to be

Now don’t worry baby, I ain’t no maybe
Rain or shine this love of mine is for you
Yeah, let my arms remind you I’ll always be beside you
Holdin’ on until this ride is through
So away we go down that forever road

It ain’t gonna be easy, we’ll both make big mistakes
But if you love, trust me we’ve got what it takes

Now don’t worry baby, I ain’t no maybe
Rain or shine this love of mine is for you
Yeah, let my arms remind you I’ll always be beside you
Holdin’ on until this ride is through
So away we go down that forever road
Down that forever road, away we go

Wagon Wheel By Darius Rucker

I will never forget the first time I heard this song. It was at a open mic in Fresno, CA literally a half a block away from my apartment. I went with my husband. I thought it was a catchy tune. I am not particularly a fan of country music. Yet I liked the song. After that night, they played this on Fresno’s country radio station over and over again. I was like AGAIN :) but nonetheless its a catchy tune and it really can cheer up someone’s day. Memories are the best sometimes.  So here it is…. Wagon Wheel

Heading down south to the land of the pines
I’m thumbing my way into North Carolina
Staring up the road and pray to God I see headlights
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I’m a-hopin’ for Raleigh, I can see my baby tonight

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey momma rock me
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey momma rock me

Running from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band
My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now
Oh, north country winters keep a-getting me down
Lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
But I ain’t turning back to living that old life no more

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey momma rock me
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey momma rock me

Walkin’ to the south out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long toke
But he’s a-heading west from the Cumberland gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee
I gotta get a move on before the sun
I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she’s the only one
And if I die in Raleigh at least I will die free

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey momma rock me
Oh, rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey, hey momma rock me

Oh, so rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel (I wanna feel)
Hey, hey momma rock me (momma rock me, momma rock me)
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
(I wanna rock like a south bound train)
Hey momma rock me
Rock me
