Sunrise, Sunset
Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older
When did they?

When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming, even as we gaze.

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly fly the years.
One season following another,
Laden with happiness and tears.

What words of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their way?
Now they must learn from one another,
Day by day.

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly fly the years.,
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears.

From ‘The Fiddler On The Roof’
By Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick

Sunrise, Sunset

From Healing Corner For Parents And Children’

Don’t Cry Out Loud
Baby cried the day the circus came to town
‘Cos she didn’t like parades just passing by her
So she painted on a smile and took up with some clown
And she danced without a net upon the wire.
I know a lots about her ‘Cos you see,
Baby is an awful lot like me.

We don’t cry out loud, we keep it inside.
Learn how to hide our feelings, fly high and proud
And if you should, fall remember you almost had it all.

Baby saw the day they pulled the big top down.
They left behind her dreams among the litter.
And the different kind of love she thought she’d found
Was nothing more than sawdust and some glitter
But baby can’t be broken ‘Cos you see,
She had the finest teacher, that’s me!

I taught her don’t cry out loud, just keep it inside
Learn how to hide your feelings, fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost had it all.
Don’t cry out loud, keep it inside.

What Is Truth?
The old man turned off the radio
And said: ‘Where did all the old songs go?
Kids sure play funny music these days.
They play it in the strangest ways.
It looks to me like they’ve all gone wild.
It was peaceful back when I was a child.’
Well man, could it be that the girls and boys
Are trying to be heard above your noise?
And the lonely voice of youth cries:
‘What is truth?’

A little boy of three sittin’ on the floor
Looks up and says: ‘Daddy, what is war?’
‘Son, that’s when people fight and die.’
The little boy of three says: ‘Daddy, why?’
A young man of seventeen in Sunday school,
Being taught the golden rule.
And by the time another year has gone around
It may be his turn to lay his life down.
Can you blame the voice of youth for asking:
‘What is truth?’

A young man sittin’ on the witness stand
The man with the book says: ‘Raise your hand,’
‘Repeat after me: I solemnly swear.’
The man looked down at his long hair
And although the young man solemnly swore,
Nobody seemed to hear anymore.
And it didn’t really matter if the truth was there,
It was the cut of his clothes and the length of his hair.
And the lonely voice of youth cries:
‘What is truth?’

The young girl dancing to the latest beat
Has found new ways to move her feet.
The young man speaking in the city square
Is trying to tell somebody that he cares.
Yeah, the ones that you’re calling wild
Are going to be the leaders in a little while.
This old world’s wakin’ to a new born day
And I solemnly swear that it’ll be their way.
So you better help the voice of youth to find
What is truth?

Johnny Cash

You’ll See
You think that I can’t live
Without your love. You’ll see.
You think I can’t go on another day.

You think I have nothing
Without you by my side.
You’ll see, somehow, someway.

You think that I can’t
Ever laugh again. You’ll see.
You think that you’ve
Destroyed my faith in love.

You think after all you’ve done,
I’ll never find my way back home.
You’ll see, somehow, someday.

All by myself.
I don’t need anyone at all.
I know I’ll survive.
I know I’ll stay alive.

All on my own.
I don’t need anyone this time.
It will be mine.
No one can take it from me.
You’ll see.

You think that you are strong,
But you are weak. You’ll see.
It takes more strength to cry
And admit defeat.

I have truth on my side.
You only have deceit.
You’ll see, somehow, someday.

All by myself.
I don’t need anyone at all.
I know I’ll survive.
I know I’ll stay alive.

I’ll stand on my own.
I won’t need anyone this time.
It will be mine.
No one can take it from me.
You’ll see!

By Madonna

Sung by Susan Boyle

I Will Survive
At first, I was afraid, I was petrified.
Kept thinking, I could never live without you by my side.
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong,
And I grew strong and I learned how to get along.

And so you’re back from outer space.
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face.
I should have changed that stupid lock.
I should have made you leave your key.
If I’d known for just one second you’d be back to bother me.

Go on now, go, walk out the door, just turn around now,
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore.
Weren’t you the one, who tried to hurt me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble? Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh, no, not I, I will survive.
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive.
I’ve got all my life to live, I’ve got all my love to give.
And I’ll survive, I will survive, hey, hey.

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart.
Kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart.
And I spent, oh, so many nights just feeling sorry for myself.
I used to cry but now I hold my head up high.

And you see me, somebody new.
I’m not that chained up little person still in love with you.
And so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free.
But now I’m saving all my loving for someone who’s loving me.

Go on now, go, walk out the door, just turn around now,
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore.
Weren’t you the one, who tried to break me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble? Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh, no, not I, I will survive.
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive.
I’ve got all my life to live, I’ve got all my love to give.
And I’ll survive, I will survive, oh.

By Freddie Perren & Dino Fekaris

Where Are You?
Who can say for certain?
Maybe you’re still here.
I feel you all around me.
Your memory’s so clear.

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak.
You’re still an inspiration.
Can it be that you are mine forever, love,
And you are watching over me from up above?

Fly me up to where you are,
Beyond the distant star I wish upon tonight,
To see you smile.
If only for a while to know you’re there,
A breath away’s not far to where you are.

Are you gently sleeping,
Here inside my dream?
And isn’t faith believing?
All power can’t be seen.

As my heart holds you,
Just one beat away,
I cherish all you gave me, every day.
‘Cause you are mine forever, love,
Watching me from up above.

And I believe that Angels breathe,
And that love will live on and never leave.

Fly me up to where you are,
Beyond the distant star I wish upon tonight,
To see you smile, if only for a while.
To know you’re there.
A breath away’s not far to where you are

Josh Groban

This song made me cry the very first time I noticed it.

They Do not Understand

A mother riding on a city bus
Kids are yelling kicking up a fuss
Everybody's staring not knowing what she's going through
Somebody said don't you even care?
Do you let 'em do that everywhere?
She slowly turned around, looked up and stared
She said Please forgive them
But they've been up all night
Their father struggled but he finally lost his fight
He went to heaven
In the middle of the night
So please forgive my children

(They don't understand)
Everybody's busy with their own situation
Everybody's lost in their own little world
Bottled up, hurry it up trying to make a dream come true
(They don't understand)
Everybody's living like there ain't no tomorrow
Maybe we should stop and take a little time
Cause you never really know what your neighbor's going through
(They don't understand)


A man driving on the interstate
Slowing down traffic making everybody late
Everybody's staring not knowing what he's going through
Somebody honked from the passing lane
Yellin' out the window, I ain't got all day
The old man looked around and he caught his eye
He said please forgive me
You know it's been a long life
My wife has passed away and my kids don't have the time
I've been left all alone
And its getting hard to drive
So please forgive me children

(They don't understand)
Everybody's busy with their own situation
Everybody's lost in their own little world
Bottled up, hurry it up trying to make a dream come true
(They don't understand)
Everybody's living like there ain't no tomorrow
Maybe we should stop and take a little time
Cause you never really know what your neighbor's going through
(They don't understand)

A man hanging on a wooden cross
Giving everything to save the lost
Everybody's starin' not knowin' what he's going through
Somebody said you don't have a prayer
If you were king, come down from there
The man just turned his head looked up and stared

He said please forgive them
For they have not seen the light
They'll come to know me when I come back to life
Go to heaven, to make everything all right
So please forgive your children

(They don't understand)
Everybody's busy with their own situation
Everybody's lost in their own little world
Bottled up, hurry it up trying to make a dream come true
(They don't understand)
Everybody's living like there ain't no tomorrow
Maybe we should stop and take a little time
Cause you never really know what your neighbor's going through
(They don't understand)

A mother riding on a city bus
Kids are yelling kicking up a fuss
Everybody's staring not knowing what she's going through

The Impossible Dream
To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow,
To run where the brave dare not go.

To right the unrightable wrong,
To love pure and chaste from afar,
To try when your arms are too weary –
To reach the unreachable Star.

This is my quest:
To follow that star,
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far,
To fight for the right, without question or pause,
To be willing to march into hell, for a heavenly cause...

And I know, if I’ll only be true to this glorious quest,
That my heart will be peaceful and calm,
When I’m laid to my rest...
And the world will be better for this,
That one man [soul],
Scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage –
To reach the unreachable star.

From ‘The Man of La Mancha’ (Don Quixote)

Just Keep Breathing
When Heaven seems so far away
And dreams are just a memory,
Without the dark the light won’t show,
Remember that you’re not alone.

When you watch the world just turn away
And break the promises it made,
When love is all too hard to hold,
Just take a breath and let it go.

Whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing
Whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing

Two a.m. and too tired to sleep,
When what you want is not what you need,
And when these walls don’t feel like home,
Remember that you’re not alone.

The beginning’s just another end,
It’s not too late to start again.
When hope is all too hard to hold,
Just take a breath and let it go.

Whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh.
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing.
Whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh.
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing.

When Heaven seems so far away
And dreams are just a memory,
When love is all too hard to hold,
Just take a breath and let it.

Go whoa oh, whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh.
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing.
Whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh, whoa whoa oh.
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing.

I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free

I wish I knew how
It would feel to be free.
I wish I could break
All the chains holding me.
I wish I could say
All the things that I should say,
Say ‘em loud say ‘em clear,
For the whole round world to hear.

I wish I could share
All the love that’s in my heart,
Remove all the bars
That keep us apart.
I wish you could know
What it means to be me,
Then you’d see and agree
That every man should be free.

I wish I could give
All I’m longin’ to give.
I wish I could live
Like I’m longin’ to live.
I wish I could do
All the things that I can do.
And though I’m way over-due,
I’d be starting anew.

Well I wish I could be
Like a bird in the sky.
How sweet it would be
If I found I could fly.
Oh I’d’ soar to the Sun
And look down at the sea.
Then I’d sing cos I know – yea,
Then I’d sing cos I know – yea,
Then I’d sing cos I know
I’d know how it feels.
Oh I know how it feels to be free.
Yea Yea!
Oh, I know how it feels
Yes I’ know,
Oh, I’ know,
How it feels,
How it feels,
To be free!

Nina Simone
