SAVE YOUR HEART

Resilient

1.  RESILIENT – Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Jonathan L Hayes / Antennalight Music (BMI).
 
You're a wildflower in a field of gray concrete
A flash of color in the dark, in empty echoes of the street
Starting from a seed of hope, blowing in the wind,
You’ve put down roots and broken through the pavement like it’s paper-thin
 
But when you go against the crowd
They try to cut you down
You cannot be broken
You’re rising from the ground
 
Resilient, stronger than you know
You’re brilliant when you let your colors show
You’re a wildflower, you won’t be down for long
Resilient, you’re brilliant, you’re strong
 
A lone voice in the desert in a thousand miles of heat
Some days you wonder how you’re standing on your feet
When you feel you’re growing weak and no one hears your cries
Remember you are here on Earth to bloom and to inspire              
 
You won’t bow down to the crowd    
When they try to cut you down
You will not be broken
You’re rising from the ground
 
Resilient, stronger than you know
You’re brilliant oh when you let your colors show
You’re a wildflower, you won’t be down for long
Resilient, you’re brilliant, you’re strong
 
You show me how
When I’m down, I can get back up again
And again and again
 
Resilient, stronger than you know
You’re brilliant when you let your colors show
You’re a wildflower, you won’t be down for long
Resilient, you’re brilliant, you’re stronger than you know
Resilient, stronger than you know
You’re brilliant oh when you let your colors show
You’re a wildflower, you won’t be down for long
Resilient, you’re brilliant, you’re strong
 
You’re a wildflower, in a field of gray concrete…

Good Day

2.  GOOD DAY - Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Athena Marie Byrne / Athena Marie Music (ASCAP); Diana Rose Murphy / Rode Mode Publishing (ASCAP).
 
Got my hot cappuccino, don't forget the whipped cream
Cute guy at the counter winked at me
I reach into my pocket of my old blue jeans
And find forty five bucks oh yeah, shopping spree
And nothings in my way, nothings in my way, yeah I know
 
It’s gonna be a good day, it’s gonna be a good day
Maybe there’ll be April showers
I will stop to smell the flowers anyway
The sun may shine, or the sun may hide
Nothin’s gonna take the happy
Nothin’s gonna take the happy off my face
It’s gonna be a good day
 
Behind a big yellow school bus the kids are waving hello
And all you need is luh uh uv is on the radio
Driving up to the toll booth, somebody covered my fare
I pay the favor forward so someone else can share in this
Nothing’s in the way kind of day,  yeah I know
 
It’s gonna be a good day, it’s gonna be a good day
Maybe there’ll be April showers
I will stop to smell the flowers anyway
The sun may shine, or the sun may hide
Nothin’s gonna take the happy
Nothin’s gonna take the happy off my face
It’s gonna be a good day
It’s gonna be a good day
 
Doot doot do doot do do do do do doot doot
Doot doot do doot do do do do do doot doot
Doot doot do do doot doot doot doot doot doot doot
 
It’s gonna be a good day, it’s gonna be a good day
Maybe there’ll be April showers
I will stop to smell the flowers anyway
The sun may shine, or the sun may hide
Nothin’s gonna take the happy
Nothin’s gonna take the happy off my face
It’s gonna be a good day
It’s gonna be a good day
It’s gonna be a good day

Blue on Top of Blue

3.  BLUE ON TOP OF BLUE - Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Miranda Zeiger / Unicorn Horn Music (ASCAP).
 
What made me so sure, nothing’s clear anymore
Why was I dyin' to get away?
I was tryin’ to break free, now I'm only broke and lonely
In the sunshine wishing for the rain
 
Thought I had a new start, clean slate
A fresh coat of shiny paint
But I traded in a little for a few
Like I always do
 
I painted blue on top of blue, blue on top of blue
 
This was supposed to be a picture perfect scene
In the postcard I planned to write
But I'm empty as an echo, so dry it’s hard to swallow
I’m missing everything I left behind
 
Thought I had a new start, clean slate
A fresh coat of shiny paint
But I traded in a little for a few
 
I painted blue on top of blue, blue on top of blue
I painted blue on top of blue, blue on top of
 
Blue-- not my favorite color
I just can’t seem to paint in any other
I keep painting   
 
Blue on top of blue, blue on top of blue
I painted blue on top of, blue on top of, blue on top of blue
I painted blue on top of blue, blue on top of blue
On top of blue   On top of blue  On top of blue

Uncharted

5.  UNCHARTED - Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP).
 
Staring at the cracks in the ceiling
Trying to find a way to my dreams and
Wondering when I'm ever gonna get there
It seems so close I could reach out and take it
Then I worry I might not make it
But I can’t get caught up I just gotta
Feel the fear and do it anyway
 
No more waiting  No more hesitating
 
No map to show me the right way to go
No satellite, No well-paved road
My future destination is unknown    
I’ll find my way in the dark by the stars in the night
By the song in my heart I know I’ll be alright
Open hearted, Living life uncharted
 
I may not know just where I'm going
But every day I’ll learn from not knowing
Won’t take advice from unhappy people--that's my only rule
They say I should be realistic
I think they’re just pessimistic
And even if it makes me a misfit
I gotta go my own way
 
So no more waiting  No more hesitating
 
No map to show me the right way to go
No satellite, No well-paved road
My future destination is unknown    
I’ll find my way in the dark by the stars in the night
By the song in my heart I know I’ll be alright
Open hearted, Living life uncharted
 
I gotta learn to trust my instincts
And not to overthink it
Every flower’s born knowing how to bloom
 
No map to show me the right way to go
No satellite, No well-paved road
My future destination is unknown    
I’ll find my way in the dark by the stars in the night
By the song in my heart I know I’ll be alright
Open hearted, Open hearted  Open hearted
Living life uncharted, uncharted

Every Day is a Gift

6.  EVERY DAY IS A GIFT - Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP).
 
We're all livin’ with a terminal condition called life
No matter how I try fight it, can’t deny it,
No-one gets out of here alive
 
Every golden sunset fades to black
Never know if it’ll be the last
But I know I’ve only got one chance
To live this precious life
 
Every day is a gift
Every day is a lesson how to live
Every day is a chance, oh
To sit it out or join the dance
Every day is a choice to lift your voice
To love, forgive, to live
Every day is a gift
 
It’s amazing how good an apple tastes
The sweet summer air after pouring rain  
The sun shining on my face
 
I love the sound of bells and children laughing
The dizzy rush I get from dancing
My crazy friends, my family
I love this precious life
 
Every day is a gift
Every day is a lesson how to live
Every day is a chance, oh
To sit it out or join the dance
Every day is a choice to lift your voice
To love, forgive, to live
Every day is a gift
 
Whatever time I’ve left here on this earth
I’ll savor every minutes worth
And when I’m gone, I hope that you’ll remember
 
Every day is a gift
Every day is a lesson
Every day is a chance to live
 
Every day is a gift
Every day is a lesson how to live
Every day is a chance, oh
To sit it out or join the dance
Every day is a choice to lift your voice
To love, forgive, to live
 
Every day is precious
Every day is precious
Every day is precious   Every day

Save Your Heart

7.  SAVE YOUR HEART - Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Athena Marie Byrne / Athena Marie Music (ASCAP).
 
The distance between us can't keep us apart
I feel you close no matter how far you are
And though you may be out of sight there's never a moment when you're not on my mind
 
Save your heart for me
Cuz we made a promise when we said I do
I'll be coming home soon
Save your heart for me. I'm saving mine for you 
 
I wish I could be where you are now
You're the part of me that I can't live without
You're every breath from my lips I can almost touch you with my fingertips
 
Save your heart for me
Cuz we made a promise when we said I do
I'll be coming home soon
Save your heart for me. I'm saving mine for you 
 
No matter where I am I can see your face
Like a photograph that never fades
And I can’t wait to come home
 
Save your heart for me
Cuz we made a promise when we said I do
I'll be coming home soon
Save your heart for me, Save your heart for me.
I'm saving mine for you 
Save your heart for me.

The Bridge You Don't Burn

8.  THE BRIDGE YOU DON’T BURN - Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Jerry Lindqvist / Sugar House Publishing (TEOSTO).
 
Hard luck times when you were growing up
Left some heavy scars
Now you're living your life like it’s hit and run
Speeding away in your getaway car
Putting out your cigarette in a puddle of gasoline
 
Every time you leave the scene
It always looks the same
Another bridge behind you
Going up in flames
 
You say goodbye
Before a word is spoken
So you won't cry
So your heart will not be broken
But if you try with me I promise you
Your love will always be returned
If you let me be the bridge that you don't burn
 
Even though you don't say much
I feel like I can tell
You're just about done and you've had enough
Living alone in your self made Hell
I can see from your broken smile
You must getting tired cuz
 
Every time you leave the scene
It always looks the same
Another bridge behind you
Going up in flames
 
You say goodbye
Before a word is spoken
So you won't cry
So your heart will not be broken
But if you try with me I promise you
Your love will always be returned
If you let me be the bridge that you don't burn
 
Hold On
Slow Down
I'm here
Be here with me   Be here with me now
 
Don’t say goodbye
Before a word is spoken
Don’t have to cry
Your heart will not be broken
Cuz if you try with me I promise you
Your love will always be returned
If you let me be the bridge that you don't burn

Love Sweet Love

9.  LOVE SWEET LOVE - Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP).
 
You taught me how to laugh again
You showed my feet how to dance again
You made my heart beat fast again
With your love sweet love
 
You put the twinkle in my eye again
You brought the swagger to my stride again
And every day I thank my lucky stars above
For your love sweet love     
 
You give me love
You give me love sweet love
 
In the middle of a crowd
You make me giggle right out loud
It’s astounding how my walls come tumbling down
With your love sweet love  
 
You give me love
You give me love
You give me love, love sweet love
 
Lonely used to be my closest friend
But he ain’t been around here, since I don’t remember when
Cuz you took the worry from my brow
You believed in me and you showed me how to love sweet love
 
You put the sunshine in my skies again
You make me glad to be alive again
I hope we never have to part, ‘cuz who would fix my broken heart
With love, sweet
 
Love
You give me love
You give me love, love sweet love
Sweet love

Come Back to Me

10. COME BACK TO ME - Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP).
 
Waiting, by the window waiting
Memories of you fading
Come back to me
 
Raindrops, flowing down like rivers
Rivers full of teardrops
Come back to me
 
Come back, come back
Come back, come back to me
 
Emptiness, I am filled with emptiness
You took my heart and left the rest
Come back to me
 
Now every song reminds me you’ve been gone too long
Without you everything is wrong
Come back to me
 
Come back, come back
Come back, come back to me
Come back to me
 
Cuz since you've gone the world is cold, the colors turned to gray
My eyes can't smile, my mouth can't even speak to say your name and
I can’t breathe, come back to me, come back to me
 
Come back, come back
Come back, come back to me
Come back, come back
Come back, come back to me
Come back to me
 
Waiting, by the window waiting

Long Road Home CD

LONG ROAD HOME

LONG ROAD HOME

Long Road Home

1.  LONG ROAD HOME--Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Jonathan L Hayes / Antennalight Music (BMI).
 
Once upon a time I had it all figured out
Set my life on cruise control but I found out
Just one moment, everything changes
Up at 3am, and I’m pacing the floor
Thinking bout my life and what I’m living for
How I’m gonna make it
 
Every climb and every stumble makes us who we are
Every win and every fumble every broken heart
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger
On the long and winding road
On the Long Road Home
 
Black top and curving double yellow lines
Turning off the autopilot in my mind
My heart opens, everything changes
I’ve got my hands on the wheel and the wind in my hair
The sun is risin’ and I’m breathin’ in the morning air
I’m gonna make it
 
Cuz every climb and every stumble makes us who we are
Every win and every fumble every broken heart
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger
On the long and winding road
On the Long Road Home
 
I wouldn’t change a thing
These are the lessons I have learned
Every detour, every turn, every scar I had to earn
I wouldn’t change a single stone   On the long road home
 
Cuz every climb and every stumble makes us who we are
Every win and every fumble every broken heart
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger
On the long and winding road
On the Long Road Home
On the Long Road Home
I’m coming home

I Dream of You

2.  I DREAM OF YOU -- Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Tracy Scharf / Born at Eight Music (ASCAP)
 
Turning in my bed, visions in my head
Make me swear I'm tasting your kiss through my tears
Darkness all around, we move without a sound
Morning comes and for a second you’re still here
 
I dream of you like you were mine
Night after night, ‘til morning light
I dream of you, I dream
Like you were mine
 
It’s Heaven and its Hell, ever since I fell
Tell me how a dream so sweet can be so cruel
Pulls me down again, I'm under and condemned
All alone but tangled up in you
 
I dream of you like you were mine
Night after night, ‘til morning light
I dream of you, I dream
Like you were mine
 
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I pray the stars I pray the moon
I pray the night to take me to you
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the dark to take me deep
Take the light so I can see
So I can
 
Dream of you like you were mine
Night after night, ‘til morning light
I dream of you, I dream
Like you were mine
 
I Dream of you like you were mine
Night after night, ‘til morning light
I dream of you, I dream
Like you were mine

Before Time Flew Away

3.  BEFORE TIME FLEW AWAY-- Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Jonathan L Hayes / Antennalight Music (BMI).
 
It was the time of our life
But I didn’t know it then
We were living high above the clouds
I thought those days would never end
Those days would never end
 
Before time flew away
We always had tomorrow, another day          
But it flew like a kite that’s gone too high
A break in the line, lost in the sky
 
You promised me tomorrow
And forever you’d be here
But now you’re gone and I go on
as memories slowly disappear
They slowly disappear
 
Before time flew away
We always had tomorrow, another day          
But it flew like a kite that’s gone too high
A break in the line, lost in the sky
 
I see your picture
When you were laughing, the sun in your eyes
The brightest future gone
And I never even thought about goodbye, goodbye
 
Before time flew away
We always had tomorrow, another day          
But it flew like a kite that’s gone too high
A break in the line, lost in the sky

What are the Chances?

4.  What are the Chances?-- Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Erin Kost / Erin Kost Music (ASCAP)
 
Do do, do do do do do do do do do
We’re like East and West, Dark and Light
Short and Tall, Left and Right
They said opposites attract
but they don’t last very long
Look at us now, we’re proving them wrong
 
What are the chances
That I’d be yours and you’d be mine
What are the chances that after all this time
We’d beat the odds and win the bet
After all these years who would have guessed
We’d still be in love, even more than the day we met
What are the chances of love
Do do, do do do do do do do do do
 
They said we’d never make it, It would be too hard
We were just too different we were world’s apart
They said opposites attract
But they don’t last very long
Look at us now, we’re still going strong
 
What are the chances
That I’d be yours and you’d be mine
What are the chances that after all this time
We’d beat the odds and win the bet
After all these years who would have guessed
We’d still be in love, even more than the day we met
What are the chances of love
Do do, do do do do do do do do do
 
Even though we’re different we go together right
One without the other would be like day without the night
I’m no statistician but there’s one thing I know
There’s not a chance in the world, I’d ever let you go
 
Do do, do do do do do do do do do
What are the chances
That I’d be yours
And you’d be mine
What are the chances
That after all this time
Do do, do do do do do do do do do
We’d be in love
Oh, What are the chances
Of Love

Little Things

5.  LITTLE THINGS-- Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Stevon Schwartz (BMI).
 
A little kiss A little smile
Holding hands a little while
A little look and a little gaze on a Summer Day
A little walk out in the park
And little secrets after dark
A little laugh and a little sigh while shooting stars light up the sky
 
The little things are everything its true
The little things, every little thing you do
I love livin’ in this great big world
of little things with you
 
A little walk in Autumn leaves
Red and orange and golden trees
A little winter is on its way, holding tight to keep the chill away
In the roaring fire’s glow
Under the green of the mistletoe
A velvet box and a diamond ring and a promise for the Spring
 
The little things are everything its true
The little things, every little thing you do
I love livin’ in this great big world
of little things with you
 
The things that we do every day may seem small
But when you stop to think about it, they’re really all you’ll ever need
 
A little chapel with a view
A sky of powder blue
A little stroll on down the aisle, My hearts a flutter as your eyes meet mine
A little dress with a little lace
Tear of joy running down my face
And then a question, oh yes “I do”, And we’re going on a little honeymoon
 
The little things are everything its true
The little things, every little thing you do
I love livin’ in this great big world
of little things with you
 
oh the little things, livin’ in this great big world
Some might say we don’t have much
But  we’ve got the little things ;
The little things, honey we’ve got the little things
the little things
 

Peace Will Find a Way

6.  PEACE WILL FIND A WAY--Patricia Bahia / Harmony Bay Music (ASCAP); Jonathan L Hayes / Antennalight Music (BMI).
 
Like a flame reaching to the sky
Turning pain and suffering into light
Like the water flowing clear and carving through the stone
I believe Peace will find a way, Peace will find a way
 
Like the wind that brings a fortress down
Turning walls into pebbles on the ground
Like a song that takes my tears and turns them into joy
I believe Peace will find a way
 
I believe
(choir) Peace, love, believe, We will find a way
In the power of love Peace, love, believe
I believe peace will find a way
 
When the power of love grows stronger
we'll study war no longer, we can break the chain
and love will rule the day
 
When the power of love grows stronger
than the love of power, we can make a change
and peace will find a way
 
 (Choir) The power of love burning brighter and brighter
It lights up the darkness so peace will find a way
The power of love burning brighter and brighter
It lights up the darkness so peace will find a way
 
I believe in the power of love
Burning brighter, light it up
The power of love burning brighter,
burning brighter, burning brighter for Peace
