I Won't Give Up by Jason Mraz


I don't know a lot of Jason Mraz but he does a duet with someone else that I enjoy so that's where I heard of him and now I check out his songs when they pop up. This being one of them but I've listened to it a bunch now and it's pretty good.



When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well, there's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

Well, I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not, and who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up, I'm still looking up.

Well, I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

Sight Unseen by Petra


This was the last Petra album I bought before I quit listening to Christian music so I don't know it as well as I do all their other albums.



For so long I was depending upon 
My senses and fences, I tried to ride on 
And trusting in things that can never be seen 
Was always a crutch on which others must lean 
Thinking if I could see I would believe 
Then somebody said believe and you will see 

Sight unseen, sight unseen 
You have to take it sight unseen 
Blinded by the darkness only faith can come between 
Sight unseen, sight unseen 

Evidence built into every design 
Led to conviction between every line 
Faith is the key that can open the veil 
To Love incarnated and pierced with a nail 
Listen my friend, have I got news for you 
The nails in His hands and feet were meant for you

I Wanna Sex You Up by Color Me Badd


I really liked Color Me Badd back in the day. This album and their next one. To be honest, I'm not even sure if they had others.



Come inside, take off your coat, I'll make you feel at home.
Now let's pour a glass of wine 'cause now we're all alone.
I've been waiting all night so just let me hold you close to me,
'Cause I've been dyin' for you girl and make love to me.

Girl you make me feel real good.
We can do it 'til we both wake up.
Girl, you know I'm hooked on you,
And this is what I'll do...

I wanna sex you up.
All night.
You make me feel real good.
I wanna rub you down.
I wanna sex you up.

Let me take off all your clothes.
Disconnect the phone so nobody knows.
Let me light a candle,
So that we can make it better.
Makin' love until we drown.

Girl, you know it feels real good.
We can do it 'til we both wake up.
Girl you know I'm hooked on you.
And this is what I'll do.

Make sweet lovin' all night long...
(I wanna sex you up)
Feels so right it can't be wrong...
Don't be shy girl rescue me...
(I wanna sex you up)
Open up your heart and I'll set you free...

Do I Have To Say The Words by Bryan Adams


A staple of the 80's and early 90's so you'll see plenty of Bryan Adams here.



Rescue me from the mire
Whisper words of desire
Rescue me, darling, rescue me

With your arms open wide
Want you here by my side
Come to me, darling, rescue me

When this world's closing in
There's no need to pretend
Set me free, darling, rescue me

I don't wanna let you go
So I'm standing in your way
I never needed anyone like I'm needin' you today

Do I have to say the words?
Do I have to tell the truth?
Do I have to shout it out?
Do I have to say a prayer?
Must I prove to you how good we are together?
Do I have to say the words?

Rescue me from despair
Tell me you will be there
Help me, please, darling, rescue me

Every dream that we share
Every cross that we bear
Can't you see? Darling, rescue me

I don't wanna let you go
So I'm standing in your way
I never needed anyone like I'm needin' you today

Do I have to say the words?
Do I have to tell the truth?
Do I have to shout it out?
Do I have to say a prayer?
Must I prove to you how good we are together?
Do I have to say the words?

Yeah! 

Do I have to say the words?
Do I have to tell the truth?
Do I have to shout it out?
Do I have to say a prayer?
Must I prove to you how good we are together?
Do I have to say the words?

So good together.
Come to me, sweet, sweet darling.
Rescue me.
Set me free, set me free, yeah
Whoa.

Burn It Down by Linkin Park


I used to love Linkin Park but I'm not a fan of their newer stuff but there are a few newer songs that I enjoy, this being one of them.



The cycle repeated
As explosions broke in the sky
All that I needed
Was the one thing I couldn't find

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

The colors conflicted
As the flames climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this
But couldn't stop from tearing it down

And you were there at the turn
Caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn
Waiting to let you know

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

You told me, "Yes,"
You held me high
And I believed when you told that lie
I played soldier, you played king
And struck me down, when I kissed that ring
You lost that right, to hold that crown
I built you up, but you let me down
So when you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

When you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

When you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

the Hammer by Ray Boltz


Love this song, really I love most of his songs from his first few albums because I listened to them all the time back in the day.



I was in the crowd
The day that Jesus died
And as He hung upon the cross
His mother cried

I saw the crown of thorns He wore
The stripes upon His back
The water and the blood ran out
And then the sky turned black

My mind was filled with anger
My heart was filled with shame
This man brought only healing
Who could bring Him pain

Why does it seem the strong
Always victimize the weak?
And suddenly I found myself
Standing to my feet

And I cried, "Who nailed Him there?
This Child of peace and mercy
Who nailed Him there?
Come and face me like a man
Who nailed Him there?"
And the crowd began to mock me
I cried, "Oh my God, I do not understand"
Then I turned and saw the hammer
In my hand

I am just a Roman soldier
An ordinary man
I love my wife and children
I do the best I can

How could I have killed Him?
It must be someone else
There's got to be an answer
I just can't blame myself

And I cried, "Who nailed Him there?
This Child of peace and mercy
Who nailed Him there?
Come and face me like a man
Who nailed Him there?"
And the crowd began to mock me
I cried, "Oh my God, I do not understand"
Then I turned and saw the hammer
In my hand

I nailed Him there
The child of peace and mercy
I nailed Him there
I am the guilty man
I nailed Him there
With my sins and my transgressions
I cried, "Oh my God, now I understand
When I turned and saw the hammer in my hand"

I'm Not A Vampire by Falling in Reverse


I wouldn't even had recognized the song by the title but I realized I had heard it before when it came on. Judging by my daughter singing the lyrics, she put it on my playlist.



Well I'm not a vampire
But I feel like one
Sometimes I sleep all day
Because I hate the sunlight

My hands are always shaking
Body's always aching
And the dark is when I feed.
Well I can lure any woman that I want to in my bed with me

And whiskey seems to be my holy water
Mothers, better lock your doors and hide your daughters

I'm insane
Well, I can feel it in my bones
Coursing through my veins
When did I become so cold?
For goodness sakes
Where is my self-control?
If home is where my heart is
Then my heart has lost all hope

Well I'm not a zombie
But I feel like one today
Self-induced comatose, chemical daze

My head is always spinning
From this dizzy blurry vision,
And my stomach has had enough
I feel like a lady
That is pregnant with a baby
'Cause I'm always throwing up
(Blew!)

Hi, my name is Ronnie
I'm an addict
(Hi, Ronnie!)
Daddy should've never raised me on Black Sabbath!

I'm insane
Well, I can feel it in my bones
Coursing through my veins
When did I become so cold?
For goodness sakes
Where is my self control?
If home is where my heart is
Then my heart has lost all hope

God bless all of you now
'Cause I'm going straight to Hell
And I'm taking you down with me
'Cause you know damn well

I'm insane
Well, I can feel it in my bones
Coursing through my veins
When did I become so cold?

I'm insane
Well, I can feel it in my bones
Coursing through my veins
When did I become so cold?
For goodness sakes
Where is my self control?
If home is where my heart is
Then my heart has lost all hope
All hope
All hope

All I Have To Give by Backstreet Boys


This is one of their better slower songs. I like the beat of some of their faster songs but this was is a nice change of pace.



I don't know what he does to make you cry
But I'll be there to make you smile
I don't have a fancy car
To get to you I'd walk a thousand miles
I don't care if he buys you nice things
Does his gifts come from the heart?
I don't know
But if you were my girl
I'd make it so we'd never be apart

[Chorus:]
But my love is all I have to give
Without you I don't think I could live
I wish I could give the world to you
But love is all I have to give

When you talk (when you talk) does it seem like he's not
Even listening to a word you say?
That's okay babe, just tell me your problems
I'll try my best to kiss them all away
Does he leave (does he leave) when you need him the most?
Does his friends get all your time?
Baby please
I'm on my knees
Praying for the day that you'll be mine

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
To you... (hey girl) hey girl, I don't want you to cry no more inside
All the money in the world could never add up to all the love
I have inside... I love you

And I will give it to you
All I can give, all I can give
Everything I have is for you
But love is all I have to give

[Chorus (3x)]

But my love is all I have to give
Without you I don't think I can live
I wish I could give the world to you
But love is all I have to give... to you

I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack


I'm not sure if I first heard this song when I met my wife and was getting to know Country or on an easy listening channel before. Either way, a good song from an artist I don't know to much about.



I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty-handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance, I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin'
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin'

Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance, I hope you dance
I hope you dance, I hope you dance

(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

Dance, I hope you dance
I hope you dance, I hope you dance
I hope you dance, I hope you dance

(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone)

Sister Christian by Night Ranger


I have always loved this song. I'm pretty sure most people who lived with this song growing up did. I still love when it comes on.



Sister Christian
Oh, the time has come
And you know that you're the only one
To say, okay
Where you going
What you looking for
You know those boys
Don't want to play no more with you
It's true

You're motoring
What's your price for flight
In finding mister right
You'll be alright tonight

Babe, you know
You're growing up so fast
And mama's worrying
That you won't last
To say, let's play
Sister Christian
There's so much in life
Don't you give it up
Before your time is due
It's true
It's true, yeah

Motoring
What's your price for flight
You've got him in your sight
And driving through the night
Motoring
What's your price for flight
In finding mister right
You'll be alright tonight

[Instrumental interlude]

Motoring
What's your price for flight
In finding mister right
You'll be alright tonight
Motoring
What's your price for flight
In finding mister right
You'll be alright tonight

Sister Christian
Oh, the time has come
And you know that you're the only one
To say, okay
But you're motoring
Yeah, motoring
