We've got CD sets and videos, radio and TV shows
Conferences, retreats and seminars
We've got books and magazines to read on everything from A to Z
And a web to surf from anywhere we are
But I hope with all this information buzzing through our brains
That we will not let our hearts forget the most important thing

Is love, love, love, love, love
It's all about love, love, love, love, love
Everything else comes down to this
Nothing any higher on the list than love
It's all about love

Now they're fighting in the middle east
And they're fighting down on Seventh Street
And there are fights in my own house on given days
It's like something's lurking deep inside
That can't seem to be satisfied
But life was not meant to be lived this way
'Cause it's true for every man and woman
Every boy and girl
That our only hope for living here together in this world

Is love, love, love, love, love
It's all about love, love, love, love, love
Everything else comes down to this
Nothing any higher on the list than love

This is the reason we were made
To know the love of our Creator
And to give the love He's given us away
Yeah, the Maker, and the Father, and the God of everything
He says to love, love, love
He says love, love, love
Love, love, love
'Cause after all, it's all about love

Gods says love, love, love, love, love
It's all about love, love, love, love, love
Everything else comes down to this
Nothing any higher on the list than love
'Cause after all, it's all about love

That's right, yeah (laugh)
Woo!
It's all about, yea yea
It's all about
All about love, love, love, love, love
It's all about love, love, love

After all don't you know?
That it really all comes down to love
After all don't you know that
Gonna tell you what it's all about, yeah
Yeah, it's all about love
Yeah, it's all about love, yeah
It's all about love,
Love, love, love


. . .



So here we are we're standing face to face
And yet we seem to be a million miles apart
This world can feel like such a lonely place
It all depends on what you see from where you are

So please,
Please tell me what you can
Cause I wanna understand

How does it look from your side?
How does it look from where you are?
How does it look from your side?
From your side of the world

So tell me the color of your sky above
Paint me a picture of the things that make you smile
Show me your fears, and what you're dreaming of
Take me to where my heart can see across the miles

And please
Please tell me what you can
Cause I want to understand

How does it look from your side?
How does it look from where you are?
How does it look from your side?
From your side of the world

Your side of the world
Don't be surprised to find it not too far away
Cause what we are both in search of
Is one in the same

So please
Please tell me what you see
Cause I really want to be
The one who understands

How does it look from your side?

How does it look from your side?
How does it look from where you are?
How does it look from your side?
From your side of the world


. . .



Well you know it's not the first time
And it will not be the last
When You find me here on my knees
Praying for the storm to pass

But what I am really needing
Is much more than just relief
I am crying out for wisdom
Only You can give to me
Cause it's such a mystery
I'm a clueless man
When it comes
To knowing how to love a woman

How do I love her?
How do I let her know she means more than anything to me?
How do I love her?

Out of all the gifts You've given
Besides the very gift of life
There is none as precious to me
As the treasure of my wife

And still all the love in my heart
Is like a raindrop to the sea
When compared to Your love for her
And thats why I ask You please
Will You teach me what she needs
I'm a earnest man
When it comes
To learning how to love this woman

How do I love her?
How do I let her know she means more than anything to me?
How do I love her?

Well I know it's gonna to take a lifetime
To answer this prayer I pray
But that's okay
Cause I've given You and her my lifetime anyway

How do I love her?
How do I let her know she means more than anything to me?
How do I love her?

Won't you tell me, tell me please...

11-6-64 the sun shone a whole lot brighter
Than ever it had before, smiling down on me
At 1:09 pm both hands of time stop turning
And you came waltzing in, to change my world for good

And I was only 2 years old, so really I don't know
Exactly what was going on
But I, I bet I laughed and played
Harder on that day
Because my whole world was changing

11-6-64, you breathed your first breath
And suddenly living life meant so much more
On the day that you were born

And I, well I was only 2, so I didn't have a clue
Of all that was transpiring
But I, I bet the sky was blue
And all the world looked new
Cause everything was changing

11-6-64, you breathed your first breath
And suddenly living life meant so much more
On the day that you were born

11-6-64
Suddenly living life meant so much more
On the day that you were born
11-6-64


. . .



One day you've got me laughing
One day you've got me crying
One day you've got me thinking
I'm going out of my mind
One thing is true
One thing that never changes
Is that you've always got me

On a Monday
On a Tuesday
On a Wednesday
All the way around til Sunday
You've always got me
On the good days
And the bad days
And the mad days
The happy and the sad days
You've got me every day of my life

One night you've got candles burning
One night your head is aching
Most night you've got several hundred things
Still on you list to get to get done
One thing stays true
One thing that you can know for certain
Is that you've always got me

On a Monday
On a Tuesday
On a Wednesday
All the way around til Sunday
You've always got me
On the good days
And the bad days
And the mad days
The happy and the sad days
You've got me every day of my life

You've always got me
You've always got me by your side
You've always got me
Every single day of my life
You've always got me
You've always got me by your side
You've always got me

One thing stays true
One thing that you can know for certain
Is that you've always got me

On a Monday
On a Tuesday
On a Wednesday
All the way up to Sunday
You've always got me
On the good days
And the bad days
And the mad days
The happy and the sad days
You've got me every day of my life


. . .



When I wake up yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
When I go out yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you

When I'm lonely well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man whose lonely without you
When I'm dreaming well I know I'm gonna dream
I'm gonna dream about the time when I'm with you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

When I'm working yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you
And when the money comes in for the work I'll do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you
When I come home yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
And if I grow old well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

(instrumental)

When I'm dreaming well I know I'm gonna dream
Dream about the time when I'm with you
And when I wake up yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
And when I go out well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you
When I come home yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door
I'll be at your door

What is it about a kiss
Makes me feel like this
oh oh

What is it that makes my heart
Beat faster when I'm in your arms
oh oh

What is it about your touch
It amazes me so much

How is it your sweet smile
Can get me through the hardest mile
oh oh

What's the magic in your eye
Brings the love in me alive
oh oh

What is it about this dance
The sweetness of our romance

That makes me feel this way

These are the echoes of Eden
Reflections of what we were created for
Hints of the passion and freedom
That waits on the other side of Heaven's door
These are the echoes of Eden

How is it the sky turns gray
Anytime you're far away
oh oh

What is it that makes me sad
Anytime you're feeling bad
oh oh

What is it about this night
The music and the candlelight

That makes me feel this way

These are the echoes of Eden
Reflections of what we were created for
Hints of the passion and freedom
That waits on the other side of heaven's door
These are the echoes of Eden


. . .



I know that look on your face
I know the secrets you tell
You're every mood I can trace
I guess I could say I know you well
But how can I say I know you well

Cause when I look in your eyes
I see a million miles across an endless sea
I wanna sail the waves and make the great discovery
And when I hold you in my arms
The beating of your heart is calling out to me
I'm holding a mystery

How many songs will be sung?
How many words will be said?
How many stories of love
Lie deep within you
Waiting to be read
And I want your story to be read

Cause when I look in your eyes
I see a million miles across an endless sea
I wanna sail the waves and make the great discovery
And when I hold you in my arms
The beating of your heart is calling out to me
I'm holding a mystery

The beating of your heart
Is calling out to me
Only a God of endless wisdom, love and mercy
Could have created such a wonder as you

I hear the beating of your heart calling out to me
I'm holding a mystery


. . .



I've watched the sunrise in your eyes
And I've seen the tears fall like the rain
You've seen me fight so brave and strong
You've held my hand when I'm afraid

We've watched the seasons come and go
We'll see them come and go again
But in winter's chill, or summer's breeze
One thing will not be changin'

We will dance
When the sun is shining
In the pouring rain
We'll spin and we'll sway
And we will dance
When the gentle breeze
Becomes a hurricane
The music will play
And I'll take your hand
And hold you close to me
And we will dance

Sometimes it's hard to hold you tight
Sometimes we feel so far apart
Sometimes we dance as one
And feel the beating of each others hearts

Some days the dance is slow and sweet
Some days we're bouncing off the walls
No matter how this world may turn
Our love will keep us from fallin'

And we will dance
When the sun is shining
In the pouring rain
We'll spin and we'll sway
And we will dance
When the gentle breeze
Becomes a hurricane
The music will play
And I'll take your hand
And hold you close to me
And we will dance

The music will play
And I'll hold you close
And I won't let you go
Even when our steps
Grow weak and slow
Still I'll take your hand
And hold you close to me
And we, will dance


. . .



Deep in the jungle, up in a tree
In Indiana 1983
Living on pizza and too little sleep
Just me and my animal friends
Then in the distance I saw through the leaves
A creature of beauty like none I had even seen
The trouble started when you smiled at me
And our two worlds came crashing together
And true love slowly began

I am Tarzan, You are Jane
I am the night, and you are the day
We're like sunshine and rain
We're so different from each other
You are woman, I am man
You're the sea, and I am the land
And I would not be who I am
If I didn't have you

I know that somedays we both wonder how
We got together, we're still so different now
But I can't imagine my life without you
Cause all those things that make us so different
Are just what make us all that we are

I am Tarzan, You are Jane
I am the night, and you are the day
We're like sunshine and rain
We're so different from each other
You are woman, I am man
You're the sea, and I am the land
And I would not be who I am
If I didn't have you

We belong together


. . .


Well, I still remember the first time
I felt the power of your kiss
It hit me like a bolt of lightning
I said, "I never will recover from this"
And like the words from the mouth of a prophet
I have lived to see those words come true
Just look at me now, I'm still reeling

~Chorus~
With every little kiss I'm reminded
How wonderful it is to be in love with you
With every little look
With every little touch
With every little kiss

(awww yea)

Like a moth being drawn to a candle
This is something that I can't resist
I guess you could say I'm addicted
'Cause I keep coming back again and again
And after all of the storms that we've weathered
All the seasons of change we've been through
But Somehow the flame keeps getting brighter

With every little kiss I'm reminded
How wonderful it is to be in love with you
With every little look
With every little touch
With every kiss you give me just a little taste of Heaven
Just one more good gift that God has givem
I don't want to miss one single little kiss

(awwww yea)

With every little kiss I'm reminded
How wonderful it is to be in love with you
With every little look
With every little touch
With every little kiss

With every little kiss I'm reminded
How wonderful it is to be in love with you
With every little look
With every little touch
With every little kiss

With every little kiss (yeah)

. . .


Well I know there have been many who have hurt you
And I know your heart's been broken many times
How I wish that I could say I've never let you down
But I know I'm one of those who've made you cry

So in the whole wide world there's
No one else who will ever
Want to love you any better

I will be the only one
To love you for everything you are
I will be the only one
To really know you in all your glory
I will be the one to see
Everything you wanna be
I will be the only one
To bring out the miracle in you

Like a masterpiece that's waiting to be discovered
Like a treasure that is waiting to be found
There is so much unseen beauty in the heart of yours
And I want to be the one to bring it out

Cause in the whole wide world there's
No one else who will ever
Want to love you any better

I will be the only one
To love you for everything you are
I will be the only one
To really know you in all your glory
I will be the one to see
Everything you gonna be
I will be the only one
To bring out the miracle in you

I'm gonna be the one beside you
When the world is left behind you
You know I'm gonna be the only one

Cause in the whole wide world there's
No one else who will ever
Want to love you any better
No one else who will ever
Want to love you any better

I will be the only one
To love you for everything you are
I will be the only one
To really know you in all your glory
I will be the one to see
Everything you gonna be
I will be the only one
To bring out the miracle in you

. . .



I'll take care of you
Don't be sad, don't be blue
I'll never break your heart in two
I'll take care of you

I'll take care of you
I'll kiss your tears away
I'll end your lonely days
All that I'm trying to say
Is I'll take care of you

I want you to know that I love you so
I'm proud to tell the world you're mine
I said it before, I'll say it once more
You'll be in my heart 'til the end of time

I'll take care of you
Don't be sad, don't be blue
Just count on me your whole life through
'Cause I'll take care of you


. . .



Tomorrow morning if you wake up
And the sun does not appear,
I will be here.

If in the dark we lose sight of love,
Hold my hand and have no fear,
âЂ?Cause I will be here.

CHORUS
I will be here when you feel like being quiet;
When you need to speak your mind, I will listen.
And I will be here when the laughter turns to crying;
Through the winning, losing, and trying, we'll be together,
âЂ?Cause I will be here.

Tomorrow morning if you wake up
And the future is unclear,
I will be here.

As sure as seasons are made for change,
Our lifetimes are made for years,
So I will be here.

CHORUS
I will be here, and you can cry on my shoulder;
When the mirror tells us we're older, I will hold you.
And I will be here to watch you grow in beauty,
And tell you all the things you are to me;
I will be here.

I will be true to the promise I have made,
To you and to the One who gave you to me.

6:30 Monday morning
I'm here hiding in my bed
A song plays on my alarm clock
As I cover up my head
And somewhere in the distance
I remember yesterday
Singing "Hallelujah"
Full of wonder, awe and grace
But now I'm just wondering
Why I don't feel anything
At all

This is a moment made for worshipping
Cause this is a moment I'm alive
And this is a moment I was made to sing
A song of living sacrifice
For every moment that I live and breathe
This is a moment made for worshipping

When I'm praying with my children
As they're running off to school
When I kiss my wife good morning
Just to say I still love you
When I'm feeling loved and happy
When I'm feeling all alone
When I'm failing to remember
All the love that I've been shown
Every single beat of my heart
Is another new place to start
To know

This is a moment made for worshipping
Cause this is a moment I'm alive
And this is a moment I was made to sing
A song of living sacrifice
For every moment that I live and breathe
This is a moment made for worshipping

Every single beat of my heart
Is another new place to start
Right now

This is a moment made for worshipping
Cause this is a moment I'm alive
And this is a moment I was made to sing
A song of living sacrifice
For every moment that I live and breathe
This is a moment made for worshipping

From the rising of the sun
To the setting the sun
The name of the Lord is worthy to be praised


. . .



I know you've heard the stories
But they all sound too good to be true
You've heard about a place called home
But there doesn't seem to be one for you
So one more night you cry yourself to sleep
And drift off to a distant dream

Where love takes you in and everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in

And somewhere while you're sleeping
Someone else is dreaming too
Counting down the days until
They hold you close and say I love you
And like the rain that falls into the sea
In a moment what has been is lost in what will be

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart

And this love will never let you go
There is nothing that could ever cause this love to lose its hold

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in it takes you in for good
When love takes you in
