Angel-Jackie Evancho Cover

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh a beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
Oh and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
So tired of the straight life
And everywhere you turn
There’s vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don’t make no difference
Escaping one last time
It’s easier to believe
In this sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

In the arms of the angel
Fly away (from here)
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
(You are pulled from the wreckage)
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

My Next Thirty Years by Tim McGraw

I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it’s time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years I’m gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I’ve done
Maybe now I’ve conquered all my adolescent fears
And I’ll do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years I’m gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I’m doing here
In my next thirty years

Oh my next thirty years, I’m gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I’ll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here, in my next thirty years
In my next thirty years

Tell Her You Love Her by Echosmith

Tell her a story.
Tell her the honest truth
You treat her better.
Make sure to see it through
Don’t be just everything she wants
Be everything she needs

When she says she loves you
Tell her you love her, too

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh [2x]

Give her a reason,
A reason to love all you do.
She’ll tell you secrets.
You’ll tell her secrets, too
She’ll tell you all her hopes and dreams
You’ll tell them, too

When she says she loves you
Tell her you love her, too [2x]

But don’t you run away, run away
When you get tired
‘Cause this will slip away, slip away
And start a fire
That can never be put out
Oh, hurry time is running out
But don’t you run away, run away
Before you tell her you love her

(Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) [2x]

When she says she needs you
Tell her you need her, too
You tell her clearly
Speak what your heart wants you to
Tell her she’s lovely
Always tell her the truth
When she says she loves you
Tell her you love her, too

But don’t you run away, run away
When you get tired
‘Cause this will slip away, slip away
And start a fire
That can never be put out
Oh, hurry time is running out
But don’t you run away, run away
Before you tell her you love her

We’re Not Alone by Echosmith

Ooh, this don’t feel right
In fact, it feels like things are escalating
Just last night
I heard talks of a new beginning

And this is getting out of hand
And I’m sure you understand
That we can’t stay

[CHORUS:]
Tonight we’ll dream to a better cause
Stand straight for the crooked ones
We’ll set out and see how far we’ll go
And we’ll live life in a different light
Steadfast through the darkest night
Keep our heads up and eyes fixed on the road
We’re not alone, we’re not alone
We’re not alone, we’re not alone

Since we’ve been gone
It’s getting harder for us to remember
Where we’re from
‘Cause since we left things are moving faster

And now we’re closer to the sky
When we see the sun rise
We’ll be on our way

[CHORUS]

Oh, keep it up
It’s only getting better
Oh, carry on
And just remember to

Oh, keep your head up now
And lift your feet off the ground

[CHORUS]

Always The Only One by Lee Brice

Wish I could say, I could say I’ve been looking for you my whole life
But I never believed, I never dreamed, I never knew anything could feel this right
I got a past I couldn’t get past, but it don’t haunt me anymore
Cuz all my demons they ran like hell when my angel walked through my door

You were always the only one
You were always the only one
Yeah

If I had a chance, a chance to take it all back, God knows I would
Hide your heart away, hide you from the pain every second if I could
Well baby no matter what happens now, you can know I’m always yours
I ain’t ever going nowhere, cuz I ain’t never loved, no loved nobody more

You were always the only one
You were always the only one
Yeah

You were baby

If you never believe anything else I ever say
Every second, every moment, every day every day
If you never believe anything else I ever say
Every second, every moment, in every way

You were always the only one

You were always the only one
You were always the only one
Yeah baby

Pretty Beautiful by the Swon Brothers

There’s something about you, your every move
It’s like the sun comes up just to shine on you
And you’re a wild flower, in a world of weeds
Ain’t no doubt about it, you were hand picked just for me

And baby you turn grey to blue
Now what you do is wonderful, wonderful
And you don’t you know, that you’re so beautiful
Beautiful, you make pretty beautiful
You’re beautiful

It ain’t what you’re wearing, or those diamond eyes
It’s the heart that you carry deep inside
Like a mist in the morning, or the midnight rain
You’re the love that I want and I want falling down on me

And baby you turn grey to blue
Now what you do is wonderful, wonderful
And you don’t you know, that you’re so beautiful
Beautiful, you make pretty beautiful

Baby, you’re my one in a million
You’re the only one that’s ever been so beautiful

And baby you turn grey to blue
Now what you do is wonderful, wonderful
And you don’t you know, that you’re so beautiful
Beautiful, you make pretty beautiful
You’re beautiful

Don’t you know, don’t you know
You’re beautiful

There’s something about you
Yeah, there’s something about you
There’s something about you
There’s something about you

Who I Am With You by Chris Young

I’ve been a rolling stone all my life
Flying all alone, flying blind
I’ve seen it all, I’ve been around
I’ve been lost and I’ve been found but

[Chorus:]
Who I am with you is who I really want to be
You’re so good for me
And when I’m holdin’ you, it feels like I’ve got the world in my hands
Yeah, a better man is who I am with you

I’ve got a ways to go on this ride
But I got a hand to hold that fits just right
You make me laugh, you make me high,
You make me want to hold on tight, ’cause

[Repeat Chorus]

Who I am with you
Because of you I’m a lucky man
You’re the best part of who I am

[Repeat Chorus]

Yes, who I am with you

Center Of My World by Chris Young

Little beads of light were dancin’ off the wall
Reflectin’ off the spinning crystal ball
In a dance hall down in Texas, where time slowed to a crawl
Baby, it’s just you holdin’ on to me in the middle of it all

Oh, girl, you’re the center of my world
That place in my universe
To me you’re every dream I dream
The air I breathe, my everything

A ray of sunlight shinin’ down
The point my life revolves around
It’s like I live to love you girl
You’re the center of my world

My whole life changed the moment I met you
And here we are like Heaven only knew
There could be ten thousand people fillin’ up this room
But in my mind, far as I’m concerned, it’s just me and you

Oh, girl, you’re the center of my world
That place in my universe
To me you’re every dream I dream
The air I breathe, my everything

A ray of sunlight shinin’ down
The point my life revolves around
It’s like I live to love you girl
You’re the center of my world

A ray of sunlight shinin’ down
The point my life revolves around
It’s like I live to love you girl
You’re the center of my world

You’re the center of my world
That place in my universe
To me you’re every dream I dream

Love Me Like No Tomorrow by Trace Adkins

Hold me like there’s no next time
Like it’s the last time you’ll have the chance to
Show me how much you want me
Like I’m the only thing that matters
No one knows when the world’s gonna end
So let’s make love like we never will again

‘Cause if the sun never rises, I wanna go down in flames
I want the last thing I hear to be you whisperin’ my name
If every moment together is time that we borrowed

Then hold me tight and love me like there’s no tomorrow
I hope we live forever
And that day will never come, but darlin’
I know if it ever happens
I couldn’t imagine not being in your arms
There’s so much we take for granted in life
So love me baby like we’re running out of time

‘Cause if the sun never rises, I wanna go down in flames
I want the last thing I hear to be you whisperin’ my name
If every moment together is time that we borrowed

‘Cause if the sun never rises, I wanna go down in flames
I want the last thing I hear to be you whisperin’ my name
If every moment together is time that we borrowed

Hold me tight and love me like there’s no tomorrow
