Without Love 04:20
Without Love (by John Beccia) Will you meet me when I come your way Will you meet me at the break of day Will you greet me when the morning comes In the heat of what we think is love For what is this life.......... without love? I will wait until you finally come I will wait until my days are done Is it fate or is it circumstance It's not too late to take another chance For what is this life.......... without love? Life is worth living when giving the things you can give There's no forgiving for missing the things that you miss Always question all the things we feel Always question what we should reveal We think uless it's something we can prove What will be left of anything we do? For what is this life.......... without love? Life is worth dying when trying to find something more There's no denying there's one thing that we are here for Don't you turn away and disappear Don't you turn away from what you fear Finally learn when we can face the fact The love we give is always coming back For what is this life.......... without love Without love.......without love

Behind All the Tears (by John Beccia) When you are losin’, Losing a love you thought would last. Though so confusin’, You realize the die is cast. Feeling lost and hopeless, as you confront your deepest fears, You’ve got to dry your eyes and leave behind all the tears. Like an illusion That you can see but cannot touch. That you are using, Depending on one thing too much. You can never measure someone’s ability to care You just ignore the lies and leave behind all the tears It’s the light, not darkness, that seems to blind us with it’s sight. We look to who we are and we try to make it thru, make it thru the night It’s so abusing, When you can never let it go It’s not amusing If you believe you think you know Why it ever happened, and yet the cause is never clear) You’ve got to redefine and leave behind all the tears And leave behind all the tears

The Road That Used to Be (by John Beccia) I was so happy........ when you left me alone A wish that came true just like a....... mortgage or loan I knew it was over......when I was set free Now I’m left out on the road that used to be You might think it’s funny.......from this point of veiw I don’t know if I would rather..... be me or you On new roads they’re building.......they now charge a fee And I’m left out on the road that used to be I know I seem twisted......like a leaf in the wind I feel like I missed it........like an emptied out bin Which road I should follow......is a mystery to me So I’m left out on the road that used to be I’ll make the best of it......no matter what comes I would rise above it.......if I wasn’t all thumbs With a plum on my finger......I’m crying with glee And I’m left out on the road that used to be This life is a puzzle......a game played in time It isn’t because of......any reason or rhyme What once was the future......is now memory And I’m left out on the road that used to be I was so happy........ you left me alone Soon I’ll stop talkin’.......... and hang up the phone Facing the darkness.......that’s in front of me Now I’m left out on the road that used to be

CHANCE TO TAKE (by John Beccia) I hear the music playing, I see the people swaying All for the moment's sake, another chance to take with love I feel it in the air now, I see it everywhere now No new mistakes to make, another chance to take with love Please don't hide behind the wall of sorrow Everybody's felt that pain before The walls are breaking down now, as love grows all around now It's just your heart at stake, another chance to take with love The crescent moon, it rises to break down all disguises There is no need to fake, another chance to take with love Please down turn and run away tomorrow Everybody's felt the hurt before I see it in the making, it's right there for the taking With only fear to shake, another chance to take with love I hear the music playing, I see the people swaying All for the future's sake, another chance to take with love All for the future's sake, another chance to take with love

Through the Night by John Beccia I got a guy, who’s kind of crazy, but he always treats me right His hair is long, a little wavy, and it’s got a streak of white And when we talk, we talk for hours about the little things in life Just like the sun...will feed the flowers, he will lead me through the night He makes me feel a little lazy, when he rubs my back so sweet My thoughts they get a little hazy, when he knocks me off my feet And when we walk, we walk for miles just taking in most every sight Like a welcome path..... through the forest wild, he will lead me through the night He is my friend, I am his lady I’ll always treats him like a king Like a mother swan protects her baby, I’ll hold him close beneath my wing And when we lie next to each other, there are no questions wrong or right Just like the heart will lead the lover, he will lead me through the night Like a shining star that will glow and hover... He will lead me through the night

Fantasy 05:18
Fantasy (by John Beccia) I wonder how much longer love is ours to keep...... while I lie still awake and you are still asleep So far the love we share is living like a dream...... Could it be what it is, is really what it seems? With changing times we must deal..... The different ways that we feel Will love endure and be so real CHORUS - Or just a fantasy? (Is it just a fantasy?) Or just a fantasy? (Is it just a fantasy?) Or just a fantasy? (Is it just a fantasy?) Or just a fantasy? Crickets are chirping and the lights they lowly hum...... Feelings are fragile and the hurt will have to come Each person plays the game the way they think is right...... The ocean ebbs and flows as day turns into night As time keeps moving so fast..... What do we learn from the past? Is love so strong that it can last Repeat Chorus It takes 2 hearts combined to know it means a lot...... It take 2 hands entwined to hold to what you've got It takes so long to learn you can't go back again...... You've got to live inside the moment that you're in Nobody knows what's in store.....Why are we reaching for more? Will love still be what we live for Repeat Chorus

When You Open Your Heart by John Beccia Do you see all the beauty around you? Possibilities wide as the sky See it all, don’t let it pass through you Seize it all, it all will come to you When you open........... when you open your heart There is power and change in each moment There is life in the tiniest leaf See it all, it’s taking and giving Seize it all, there’s reason for living When you open........... when you open your heart Morning warmness from the light in the skies Sun is rising when you open your eyes There’s a path to be made through this forest There is moss in the shade of the trees See it all, and touch it’s green coolness Seize it all, it’s wise to be foolish When you open........... when you open your heart Evening stillness in the dusk of the day Orange reflections, as sunset takes you away In the crack between daylight and nightime There are magical dreams to be had See it all, it’s there for the reaping Seize it all, it’s yours for the keeping When you open........... when you open your heart When you open your heart
