You Can Fly!
Music: Sammy Fain
Lyrics: Sammy Cahn
from Peter Pan

Think of the presents you've brought
Any merry little thought
Think of Christmas, think of snow
Think of sleigh bells Here we go!
Like a reindeer in the sky

You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!

Soon you'll zoom all around the room
All it takes is faith and trust
But the thing that's a positive must
Is a little bit of pixie dust
The dust is a positive must

You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!

When there's a smile in your heart
There's no better time to start
It's a very simple plan
You can do what the birdies can
At least it's worth a try

You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!

Second Star to the Right
Music: Sammy Fain
Lyrics: Sammy Cahn
from Peter Pan

The second star to the right
Shines in the night for you
To tell you that the dreams you plan
Really can come true

The second star to the right
Shines with a light that's rare
And if it's Never Land you need
It's light will lead you there

Twinkle, twinkle little star
So I'll know where you are
Gleaming in the skies above
Lead me to the one who loves me

And when you bring him my way
Each time we say "Goodnight"
We'll thank the little star that shines
The second from the right

After You've Gone

Words and Music by Henry Creamer and Turner Layton
Performed by Judy Garland

After you've gone and left me cryin'
After you've gone there's no denyin'
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad
You'll miss the dearest pal you've ever had

There'll come a time, now don't forget it
There'll come a time when you'll regret it
Someday, when you grow lonely
Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only
After you've gone, after you've gone away

After you've gone and left me cryin'
After you've gone there's no denyin'
You're gonna feel blue, and you're gonna feel sad
You're gonna feel bad
And you'll miss, and you'll miss,
And you'll miss the bestest pal you ever had

There'll come a time, now don't forget it
There'll come a time when you'll regret it
But baby, think what you're doin'
I'm gonna haunt you so, I'm gonna taunt you so
It's gonna drive you to ruin
After you've gone, after you've gone away.

California Girls
by the Beach Boys

Well, East coast girls are hip, I really dig those styles they wear,
And the Southern girls with the way they talk, they knock me out when
I'm down there.

The Midwest farmers' daughter really makes you feel alright,
And the Northern girls, with the way they kiss, they keep their
boyfriends warm at night.

CHORUS:
I wish they all could be California,
(wish they all could be California)
I wish they all could be California girls.

The West coast has the sunshine and the girls all get so tan,
I dig a french bikini on Hawiian Island dolls,by a palm tree in the
sand.

I been all round this great big world and I seen all kinds of girls,
yeah, but I couldn't wait to get back in the states,
back to the cutest girls in the world.

Listen With Your Heart
Music: Alan Menken
Lyrics: Stephen Schwartz
from Pocahontas

Ay ay ay ya
Ay ay ya

Que que na-to-ra
You will understand

Listen with your heart
You will understand

Let it break upon you
Like a wave upon the sand

Listen with your heart
You will understand

You will understand ...

Just Around the Riverbend
Music: Alan Menken
Lyrics: Stephen Schwart
from Pocahontas

What I love most about rivers is:
You can't step in the same river twice
The water's always changing, always flowing
But people, I guess, can't live like that
We all must pay a price
To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing
What's around the riverbend
Waiting just around the riverbend

I look once more
Just around the riverbend
Beyond the shore
Where the gulls fly free
Don't know what for
What I dream the day might send
Jut around the riverbend
For me
Coming for me

I feel it there beyond those trees
Or right behind these waterfalls
Can I ignore that sound of distant drumming
For a handsome sturdy husband
Who builds handsome sturdy walls
And never dreams that something might be coming?
Just around the riverbend
Just around the riverbend

I look once more
Just around the riverbend
Beyond the shore
Somewhere past the sea
Don't know what for ...
Why do all my dreams extend
Just around the riverbend?
Just around the riverbend ...

Should I choose the smoothest curve
Steady as the beating drum?
Should I marry Kocoum?
Is all my dreaming at an end?
Or do you still wait for me, Dream Giver
Just around the riverbend?

Winter
Music and Lyrics:Tori Amos
from Little Earthquakes

Snow can wait
I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose
get my new boots on
I get a little warm
in my heart
When I think of winter
I put my hand in my
father's glove

I run off where the drifts
get deeper
Sleeping Beauty trips me
with a frown I hear a voice
"You must learn to stand up
for yourself Cause I can't always be around"

he says
when you gonna
make up your mind
When you gonna love you
as much as I do
When you gonna
make up your mind
Cause things are gonna change
so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always
want you near you say that things
change my dear

boys get discovered
as winter melts
flowers competing for the sun
years go by and I'm here
still waiting withering where some
snowman was

mirror mirror
where's the crystal palace
but I only can see myself
Skating around the truth
who I am but I know dad
the ice is getting thin
hair is grey and the fires
are burning so many dreams
on the shelf
You say I wanted you to be
proud of me
I always wanted that myself

things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses have gone ahead
I tell you that I'll always want you
near you say that things change
my dear

On My Own
sung by the character "Eponine"
from Les Miserables

And now I'm all alone again
Nowhere to turn, no one to go to
Without a home without a friend
Without a face to say hello to
And now the night is near
I can make believe he's here

Sometimes I walk alone at night
When everybody else is sleeping
I think of him and I'm happy
With the company I'm keeping
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head

Own my own
Pretending he's beside me
All alone
I walk with him till morning
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me

In the rain the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever

And I know it's only in my mind
That I'm talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he is blind
Still I say, there's a way for us

I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone
The river's just a river
Without him
The world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers

I love him
But every day I'm learning
All my life
I've only been pretending
Without me
His world would go on turning
A world that's full of happiness
That I have never known

I love him
I love him
I love him
But only on my own.

Dante's Prayer
Loreena McKennitt
from The Book Of Secrets

When the dark wood fell before me
And all the paths were overgrown
When the priests of pride say there is no other way
I tilled the sorrows of stone.

I did not believe because I could not see
Though you came to me in the night
When the dawn seemed forever lost
You showed me your love in the light of the stars.

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me.

Then the mountain rose before me
By the deep well of desire
From the fountain of forgiveness
Beyond the ice and the fire.

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me.

Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars.

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares.

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me
Please remember me

Reflection
Lea Salonga
from Mulan

Look at me
I will never pass for
A perfect bride
Or a perfect daughter
Can it be
I'm not meant to play
This part?
Now I see
That if I were to truly
To be myself
I would break
My family's heart

Who is that girl I see
Staring straight
Back at me?
Why is my reflection someone
I don't know?
Somehow I cannot hide
Who I am
Though I've tried
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

One More Time
Laura Pausini
from "Message in a Bottle"

Nothing I must do
Nowhere I should be
No one in my life
To answer to but me

No more candlelight
No more purple skies
No one to be near
As my heart slowly dies

If I could hold you one more time
like in the days when you where mine
I'd look at you 'till I was blind
So you would stay

I'd say a prayer each time you'd smile
Cradle the moments like a child
I'd stop the world if only I
Could hold you one more time

(hmmmmmm)

I've memorized your face
I know your touch by heart
Still lost in your embrace
I'd dream of where you are

(music break)

(hmmm)

If I could hold you one more time
Like in the days when you were mine
I'd look at you 'till I was blind
So you would stay

I'd say a prayer each time you'd smile
Cradle the moments like a child
I'd stop the world if only I
Could hold you one more time

One more time

Kissing You
Des'ree
from "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet"

Pride can stand thousand trials
The strong will never fall
But watching stars without you
My soul cries

Heaving heart is full of pain
Ohh, ahh the aching
'Cause I'mmm kissing you, ahh
I'mmm kissing you, love

Touch me deep, pure and true
Give to me forever
'Cause I'mmm kissing you, ahh
I'mmmm kissing you love

And where are you now
Where are you now
'Cause I'mmm kissing you
I'm kissing you, love

Hands
Jewel

if I could tell the world just one
thing it would be that we're all ok
and not to worry 'cause worry is
wasteful and useless in times like these
I won't be made useless I won't be idle
with despair I will gather myself around
my faith for light does the darkness
most fear

my hands are small, I know
but they're not yours, they are my own
but they're not yours, they are my own
and I am never broken

poverty stole your golden shoes
it didn't steal your laughter
and heartache came to visit me
but I knew it wasn't ever after
we'll fight, not out of spite
for someone must stand up for
what's right cause where there's a man
who has no voice there ours shall go singing

my hands are small I know
but they're not yours, they are my own
but they're not yours, they are my own
I am never broken

in the end only kindness matters
in the end only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I
will pray I will get down on my knees,
and I will pray I will get down on
my knees, and I will pray

my hands are small I know
but they're not yours, they are my own
but they're not yours, they are my own
and I am never broken

my hands are small I know
but they're not yours, they are my own
but they're not yours, they are my own

and I am never broken we are never broken

we are god's eyes god's hands
god's mind we are god's eyes
god's hands god's heart
we are god's eyes god's hands
god's eyes we are god's hands we are god's hands

The World Is Not Enough
from The World Is Not Enough

I know how to hurt
I know how to heal
I know what to show
And what to conceal
I know when to talk
And I know when to touch
No one ever died from wanting too much

Chorus:
The world is not enough
But it is such a perfect place to start, my love
And if you're strong enough
Together we can take the world apart, my love

People like us
Know how to survive
There's no point in living
If you can't feel alive
We know when to kiss
And we know when to kill
If we can't have it all
Then nobody will

Chorus

I...I feel safe
I...I feel scared
I...I feel ready
And yet unprepared

Chorus

The world is not enough
The whole world needs enough
The world is not enough

Beautiful World

Sumi Jo

If I could change the world for just one day,
To make it better for one moment,
I'd lift the sorrowful veil,
And recount the tale
Of a people
Longing for laughter,
Longing for love.

If I could change the world for just one day,
I'd free the prisoners of sadness,
So they can sing in the street
To music so sweet,
And they'll never
Look back in sorrow,
Only in love.

Beautiful world,
Light of love,
Light of life, just like a star
Meant to guide us
To the safety of a harbor known as paradise.

Beautiful world,
It's just a beautiful dream,
Beautiful dream...

If I could change the world for just one day,
I would embrace the broken-hearted,
I'd take the pain that they felt,
And make it all melt
To a river
Raging with laughter,
Raging with love.

If I could change the world...

This Time Around

Linda Eder

This time around
I'll take the moment
This time around
I'll make it last
I've had my share
Of wasted moments
But this time around
I'm holding fast
This time around
I will be stronger
Stronger than I've been
Before
I'll find the sky and soar
This time around

This time around
I will be daring
I'm going where I've
Never been
This time around
Luck will come knockin'
and when he does
i'll let him in
This time around
no second places
I'm showing aces
I'll win
I'm gonna have it all
This time around

Love, I'm gonna find you
Happiness, I'm right behind you
I've had my share of crying
But there's no denying
I'm on my way

This time around
I'll taste the glory
And I'm not going down
Without a fight
This is my life
My own story
And this time around
I'll get it right

This time around
I'm gonna find it
Look out world
Watch me shine,shine
I'm gonna grab that big brass ring
And I'm gonna make it mine
This time around
I'm gonna make it...
Mine!

Fields of Gold
Fields Of Gold
Performed by Eva Cassidy
Lyrics by Sting

You'll remember me, when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in it's jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

So she took her love for to gaze a while
Among the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
And you can tell the sun in it's jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
There've been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold

We'll walk in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
There've been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold

We'll walk in fields of gold

Many years have past, since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
As you lie in fields of gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in it's jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

Fallin'
Fallin'
Alicia Keys

I keep on falliní
In and out of love
With you
Sometimes I love ya
Sometimes u make me blue
Sometimes I feel good
At times I feel used
Lovin you darliní
Makes me so confused

I keep on
Falliní
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Oh, oh , I never felt this way
How do you give me so much pleasure
And cause me so much pain
Just when I think
Ive taken more than would a fool
I start falliní back in love with you

I keep on
Falliní
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Oh baby

I, I, I, Iím falliní
Fall

Falliní
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Im falliní
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Im falliní
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you
You Raise Me Up
You Raise Me Up
Josh Groban

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up: To more than I can be.
This Used To Be My Playground
This Used To Be My Playground
Madonna

Chorus:
This used to be my playground (used to be)
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say

Don't look back
Keep your head held high
Don't ask them why
Because life is short
And before you know
You're feeling old
And your heart is breaking
Don't hold on to the past
Well that's too much to ask

[Chorus]

Live and learn
Well the years they flew
And we never knew
We were foolish then
We would never tire
And that little fire
Is still alive in me
It will never go away
Can't say goodbye to yesterday (can't say goodbye)

[Chorus]

No regrets
But I wish that you
Were here with me
Well then there's hope yet
I can see your face
In our secret place
You're not just a memory
Say goodbye to yesterday (the dream)
Those are words I'll never say (I'll never say)

This used to be my playground (used to be)
This used to be our pride and joy
This used to be the place we ran to
That no one in the world could dare destroy

This used to be our playground (used to be)
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
I wish you were standing here with me

A Song For You
A Song For You
Natalie Cole

I’ve been so many places in my life and time I’ve sung a lot of songs and I’ve made some bad climbs
I’ve acted out my life in stages with ten thousand people watching
Oh, but we’re alone now and I’m singing this song for you
I know your image of me is what I hope to be, I’ve treated you unkindly
Oh, but darling can’t you see that, there’s no one more important to me
Baby, baby, can’t you see through me, ’cause we’re alone now
And I’m singing this song to you, you taught me precious secrets
Of a true love withholding nothing, you came out in front
When I was hiding, yeah, yeah, but now it’s so much better
If my words don’t quite come together, please listen to the melody
’cause my love is in there somewhere hiding
I love you in a place where there is no space or time, I love you for my life
You are a friend of mine, and when my life is over
Remember, remember, remember when we were together
And we are alone now, and I was singing this song to you
We were alone, and I was singing, yeah singing
We were alone, and I was singing this song for you
Singing my song, I’m singing my song for you
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Winter Song
Winter Song
Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum bum

This is my winter song to you.
The storm is coming soon,
It rolls in from the sea

My voice; a beacon in the night.
My words will be your light,
To carry you to me.

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love

They say that things just cannot grow
Beneath the winter snow,
Or so i have been told.

They say were buried far,
Just like a distant star
I simply cannot hold.

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

This is my winter song.
December never felt so wrong,
Cause youre not where you belong;
Inside my arms.

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum bum

I still believe in summer days.
The seasons always change
And life will find a way.

Ill be your harvester of light
And send it out tonight
So we can start again.

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

This is my winter song.
December never felt so wrong,
Cause youre not where you belong;
Inside my arms.

This is my winter song to you.
The storm is coming soon
It rolls in from the sea.

My love a beacon in the night.
My words will be your light
To carry you to me.

Is love alive? (repeat)
