MUSIC / Lyrics - Song of the Week

Let The Sun Shine

Let the sunshine pour all over you
And let the day be anything you want it to
Let the sunshine brighten up your life
And the moment be anything you like so

Chorus
Uh oh Let the sunshine in
Uh oh Let the sunshine in
Uh oh Let the sunshine in
Uh oh Let the sunshine in

Let the sunshine melt those clouds away
And let the chance for anything you want to come your way
Let the sunshine lighten up your skies
And let the wonder of it all unfold before your eyes so

Chorus

And if you find you hide behind a little grey cloud
It's time to step into the sun
Shout it out loud

Let the sunshine in
Let the sunshine in
Let the sunshine in
Let the sunshine in
You gotta let it shine
You gotta let it shine
You gotta let it shine
You gotta let it shine

Let the sunshine pour all over you
And let you heart do anything you want it to so

Chorus

You gotta let the sun shine.

All I Want

All I want is a nice little ordinary house by the sea
And a cat that will follow me to
Sit on my lap and just enjoy the view

All I want is a mind that's extraordinary
Real deep thoughts that could do something for me
I'll get wise and write a book or two

I want to know that I am not alone
I want to know that I am not alone

All I want is a ride that will carry me to
Someone who one day will want to marry me
We'll spend our time swapping points of view

All I want is a voice that can be heard
And people all around can hear every word
And find a band that's playing something new

I want to know that I am not alone
I want to know that I am not alone

Tell me honestly
Something i can't see
Am I getting anywhere

All I want is a life that's uncompromising
Finding something new everyday surprising
I won't take for granted what I've found

Tell me honestly
Something i can't see
Am I getting anywhere

All I want, all I want is you
All I want, all I want is you
All I want is you and a house
All I want is you and a cat

Only Me

I want to be good
I want to be bad
I want to be happy so I won't be sad
Be gone
Want to be here
Want to make some sense when things are clear
I'm oh oh oh oh only me
Oh oh oh oh only me

I want to in
I want to be outv Want to be confused but in doubt
Be sure of what I don't know
Please don't tell I told you so
I'm oh oh oh oh only me
Oh oh oh oh only me

Chorus
Oh oh oh oh making it make sense
Oh oh oh oh building me a fence
So I can look over
So I can look over

I want to weak I want to be strong
I want to be so right I must be wrong
Be scared but never afraid
Messy now my bed is made
Oh oh oh oh only me
Oh oh oh oh only me

Chorus

Chorus

I want to fast
I want to be slow
I want to hit the brakes when you say go
I'm oh oh oh oh only me
Oh oh oh oh only me
Oh oh oh oh only me

Treehouse

Sitting in a treehouse waiting for a friend
Waiting for someone that I like
It can get lonely when you never come round
It can get awfully quiet outside

Oh I gotta get out
I gotta get outta my tree
Oh I gotta get out
I gotta get outta my tree

Sitting in a box without any windows
It's really dark when you need some light
It can get lonely looking at these four walls
It can get hard to tell black from white

Oh I gotta get out
I gotta get outta my box
Oh I gotta get out
I gotta get outta my box

Sitting in a place somewhere in my head and
Waiting for these thoughts to pass on through
It can get lonely living in a head when
All I want is something new

Oh I gotta get out
I gotta get outta my head
Oh I gotta get out
I gotta get off of my head

Sitting in a box without any windows
It's really dark when you need some light
Sitting in a treehouse waiting for a friend
Waiting for someone that I like

Oh I gotta get out
I gotta get outta my head
Oh I gotta get out
I gotta get outta my head

Don't you want to be as lovely as me
As funny as me

I feel funny yes I do
I am lovely and you're la la lovely too

Always Be A Unicorn

You can be a spiderman
You can be a princess
You can be who you wanna be
Underneath the mask and underneath the costume
That's who you really see

You can hide in a box
You can take centre stage
You can go where you wanna go
But the person that you always take along the way
Is the real you that you wanna show

Chorus
Always be yourself
But if you can be a unicorn
Always be a unicorn
Always be yourself
But if you can be a unicorn
Always be a unicorn

You can fly to the moon
You can fall down a hole
You can try to be someone else
But you are the only version of you
So you might as well be yourself

You will go very far
You will stay for a while
You will sometimes want to run away
But wherever you go
You will tag along
And you'll know where you wanna stay

Chorus

Happens All The Time

Morning rain turns to midday sun
Endings end where we'd just begun
It's fine
Happens all the time

Maybe this is a certain thing
You never know what the day will bring
It's fine
Happens all the time

Chorus
And it makes me smile
Smile
And it makes me smile
Smiling all the way

Lazy days turn to on the run
Boredom turns into lots of fun
It's fine
Happens all the time

Maybe now is the time to play
You never know when you'll get away
It's fine
Happens all the time

Chorus

Normal day turns your life around
You never know what you have found
It's fine
Happens all the time
It's finev Happens all the time
It's fine
Happens all the time

Gingerbread Abode

Come with me
We can do anything
Follow me down
And we'll go round and round

Take my hand
Anything you understand
Follow me please
And this will be a breeze

Chorus
Follow through the trees
Where the candy canes will lead
To the gingerbread abode
Follow down the road

Breadcrumb trail
To the place where we set sail
Follow the sun
We've only just begun


Don't look back And you know we'll find the track
Follow me now
And we'll get lost somehow

Chorus

Chorus

Follow through the trees
Follow down the road
To the gingerbread adobe.

Five Little Things

Five little things that you do me
When you show that you care and you are so lovely
Five Little things is all it takes and you're mine

Five little things can be oh so much
Like the smile on your face and the feel of your touch
And your kindness makes five little things that you do for me

Chorus
And you are, are mine
And you are, are mine

Five little things I can do for you
I can turn you around and do the things you want me to
Five little things is all it takes and I'm yours

And everything I have is all that you got
Maybe more than five little things that I do for you

Chorus

Five little things that i want to be
In your arms in your heart, in your soul and still be me
Five little things just because we should

Five little things that I want to have
Are a boy and a girl and a dog and a cat
And you by my side makes five little things so good
And you by my side makes five little things so good
And you by my side makes five little things so good

Gone For Now

No tears and no upsets
It's time to watch the sunset
Everything, everything is gone for now
Gone for now

One story one blanket
Now as if by magic
Everything, everything is gone for now
Gone for now

Chorus
Close your eyes and feel the calm
I will hold you in my arms
For a little while
For a little while

Vague shapes of a memory
Fade while the sandman takes you
Everything, everything is gone for now
Gone for now

Two kisses no more play
I'll watch as you drift away
Everything, everything is gone for now
Gone for now

Chorus

No tears and no upsets
You won't hear my footsteps
You won't hear my footsteps.

Top Of The World

I wanna go where I see
High in the clouds I wanna be
All the way at the top of the world
I'll take a car take a motorbike
I'll go on anything you like
All the way at the top of the world

Chorus
We will watch the world go by
Up here
Up here in the the sky we're so high

Look at all the tiny cars
Tiny folks look up at the stars
All the way at the top of the world
I see the ocean I see the beach
Everything's so far out of reach
All the way at the top of the world

Chorus

Chorus

Don't wanna be down here anymore
I wanna go where I've gone before
All the way to the top of the world
It's been too long since I've been
I really need a change of scene
All the way at the top of the world

Chorus

Up here in the sky

Quiet Star

I can see it your eyes
Looking down is no disguise
I know you hide it from the world

You make a face so to dispel
All the things you do so well
I know you hide it from the world

Chorus
Shine bright
You might find out who you are
It's okay to be a quiet star
It's okay to be a quiet star

You do really need to be
The one out front the one we see
But try not to hide it from the world
let it show with a little grace
Let us see your smiling face
Try not to hide it from the world

Chorus

It's okay to let it show
It's okay to let us know

You're happy now with what you've done
Show us that you found it fun
Don't go hide it from the world

Chorus

It's okay it really is
It's okay you know it is
It's okay to be a quiet star
A quiet star

You make me wanna stay and play here for a little while
I make you see the sun
Shining through the rain
I make you wanna stay and play here time and time again

Chorus
I wanna make you happy
You wanna make me happy too
And so I'll stay here with you
I wanna make you happy
You wanna make me happy too
And so I'll stay here with you

You know that I will be here with you every single day

And so I know I'll stay with you.

Brand New Start

There's a light underneath it all
Shining bright illuminating
We see the top when we're together
No one can stop us now it's better

There's a space underneath the crowd
Just for two away from all the sound
And the trail we follow
Just me and you and tomorrow

Chorus
Everyday is a brand new start
And I'm starting with a new view
Everyday is brand new start with you
With you

This is it
Everything I see
From the spring to the falling leaves
We will take all the season
Don't need to worry
Don't need no reasons

Chorus

So many ways that I'm crazy about this feeling
So many times i see our dream come true

There's a fire underneath it all
Keeps us warm
Never feel the cold
And we'll wrap our arms around it
Thankful for all the times we found it

Chorus

There's a light underneath it all
Shining bright we can see it all
There's a light underneath it all.

Say Goodnight

Down the hall and up the stairs
Pull along your teddy bear
I will be here say goodnight
Say goodnight

I know you want to stay up late
Maybe when you're seven or eight
I will be here say goodnight
Say goodnight

Chorus
Always know you're wanted here
Always know you matter
Always know it's always clear
Take that with you

One more story one more book
One more under the bed we look
I will be here say goodnight
Say goodnight

Chorus

Cats in hats and teddy bears
Cats in hats and teddy bears

Chorus

One more kiss and close your eyes
Before you know the sun will rise
I will be here say goodnight
Say goodnight I will be here say goodnight.

Never Mine To Own

You were never mine to own
When you came into this world
Some kind of extended loan
But you'll always be my girl
Always in my heart
Always in my soul
Always with me
But never mine to own

You were such a crazy child
My little pride and joy
I get to keep you for a while
You'll always be my boy
Always in my heart
Always in my soul
Always with me
But never mine to own

I'll be with you from the day you were born
Until the day I die
When it's time to let you go
I know you'll be just fine

I'll teach you manners I'll teach you grace
I'll teach you how to get along
I'l give you a little space
And I know you can't go wrong
Always in my heart
Always in my soul
Always with me
But never mine to own

I'll be with you from the day you were born
Until the day I die
When it's time to let you go
I know you'll be just fine

You make me happy you make me proud
You make me wanna smile
However you go out in this world
Will be indoor own style
Always in my heart
Always in my soul
Always with me
But never mine to own
Always with me
But never mine to own
Always with me
But never mine to own
