    Miracle

    You’re my life’s one miracle
    Everything I’ve done that’s good
    And you break my heart with tenderness
    And I confess it’s true
    I never knew a love like this ’til you

    You’re the reason I was born
    Now I finally know for sure
    And I’m overwhelmed with happiness
    So blessed to hold you close
    The one that I love most
    Though the future has so much for you in store
    Who could ever love you more?

    The nearest thing to heaven
    You’re my angel from above
    Only God creates such perfect love

    When you smile at me, I cry
    And to save your life I’d die
    With a romance that is pure in heart
    You are my dearest part
    Whatever it requires
    I live for your desires
    Forget my own, your needs will come before
    Who could ever love you more?

    There is nothing you could ever do
    To make me stop loving you
    And every breath I take
    Is always for your sake
    You sleep inside my dreams and know for sure
    Who could ever love you more?


    (Steve Dorff / Linda Thompson)

    Brahms' Lullaby

    Lullaby and good night
    In the sky stars are bright
    Around your head
    Flowers gay
    Set your slumbers till day


    Lullaby and good night
    In the sky stars are bright
    Around your head flowers gay
    Set your slumbers till day

    Close your eyes now and rest
    May these hours be blessed

    Close your eyes now and rest
    May these hours be blessed

    Bonne nuit cher enfant
    Dans tes langes blanches
    Repose joyeux en rêvant des cieux

    Quand le jour reviendra
    Tu te réveilleras
    Quand le jour reviendra
    Tu te réveilleras

    Lullaby and good night
    In the sky stars are bright
    Around your head flowers gay
    Set your slumbers till day


    (Johannes Brahms)

    If I Could

    If I could
    I’d protect you from the sadness in your eyes
    Give you courage in a world of compromise
    Yes, I would

    If I could
    I would teach you all the things I’ve never learned
    And I’d help you cross the bridges that I’ve burned
    Yes, I would

    If I could
    I would try to shield your innocence from time
    But the part of life I gave you isn’t mine
    I’ve watched you grow
    So I could let you go

    If I could
    I would help you make it through the hungry years
    But I know that I could never cry your tears
    But I would
    If I could

    Yes, if I live
    In a time and place where you don’t want to be
    You don’t have to walk along this road with me
    My yesterday won’t have to be your way

    If I knew
    I would try to change the world I brought you to
    And there isn’t very much that I could do
    But I would
    If I could
    Oh baby
    I just want to protect you
    And help my baby through the hungry years
    ’Cause you’re part of me
    And if you ever ever ever need
    I said a shoulder to cry on
    Or just someone to talk to
    I’ll be there, I’ll be there
    I didn’t change your world
    But I would
    If I could

    Sleep Tight

    Now hush
    My little one
    Don’t be afraid
    Your daddy’s right here
    It’s just
    A little dream
    And now it’s gone
    There’s nothing to fear

    So close your eyes
    I’ll sing a sweet lullaby
    Lay your head close to my heart

    (chorus)

    And sleep tight the angels hover over you
    They spread their wings to keep you safe and warm
    The starlight in the heavens high above you
    Will light a path to find your way back home

    Sleep tight

    And now my sleepy head your carriage waits
    To take you off to bed
    Let go your tiny hands and drift away to a bright enchanted land
    I promise you, your sweetest dreams will come true
    Now leave this weary world behind

    (chorus)

    So close your eyes and wish upon the brightest star
    ’Cause when you dream, tt doesn’t matter where you are
    Near to me or very far, I’ll always be with you

    (whispered)
    Sleep tight
    Sleep tight
    Sleep tight

    (chorus)
    Yeah I’ll keep you safe
    Safe and warm


    (Richard Page / Jon Lind / John Lang)

    What A Wonderful World

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, dark sacred night
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
    The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands, saying “how do you do?”
    They’re really saying “I love you”
    I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
    They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
    Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world
    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world


    (George Weiss / Robert Thiele)

    My Precious One

    My precious one, my tiny one
    Lay down your pretty head
    My dearest one, my sleepy one
    It’s time to go to bed

    My precious one, my darling one
    Don’t let your lashes weep
    My cherished one, my weary one
    It’s time to go to sleep

    Just bow your head And give your cares to me
    Just close your eyes and fall into the sweetest dream, cause in my loving arms
    You’re safe as you will ever be so hush my dear and sleep 

    And in your dreams you’ll ride on angels’ wings
    Dance with the stars and touch the face of god
    And if you should awake

    My precious one, my tiny one
    I’ll kiss your little cheek
    And underneath the smiling moon
    I’ll sing you back to sleep


    (Peer Astrom / Stephanie Bentley)

    A Mother's Prayer

    I pray you'll be my eyes
    And watch her where she goes
    And help her to be wise
    Help me to let go


    Every mother's prayer
    Every child knows
    Lead her to a place
    Guide her with your grace
    To a place where she'll be safe


    I pray she finds your light
    And holds it in her heart
    As darkness falls each night
    Remind her where you are


    Every mother's prayer
    Every child knows
    Need to find a place
    Guide her with your grace
    Give her faith so she'll be safe


    Lead her to a place
    Guide her with your grace
    To a place where she'll be safe


    (David Foster / Carole Bayer Sager)

    The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

    The first time ever I saw your face
    I thought the sun rose in your eyes
    And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
    To the dark and the endless skies my love


    The first time ever I kissed your mouth
    I felt the earth move through my hand
    Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
    That was there at my command my love


    The first time ever I lay with you
    And felt your heart so close to mine
    The first time ever I saw your face
    Your face, your face, your face


    (Ewan MacColl)

    Baby Close Your Eyes

    Sun is creeping down behind the hill
    Everything is calm, everything is still
    So baby close your eyes and rest your weary mind
    Let me hold you close, I’ll sing you this lullaby

    Let your worries go, you fall asleep
    Think of nothing more, memories will keep
    Your dreams will turn to gold and you will wake and find
    That you hold a smile all day from this lullaby

    Maybe somewhere in the silence
    You may wake and you’re all alone
    Just call and I’ll be there

    even when I’m gone, each day will end
    so I’ll say good night, till we meet again
    Now baby close your eyes and rest your weary mind
    I’ll let you know the joy you bring
    Every time you hear me sing you this lullaby


    (Carol Welsman / Romano Musumarra)

    Come To Me

    I will always love you
    Mo matter what
    No matter where you go
    Or what you do knowing you
    You gonna have to do things your own way
    And that’s okay
    So be free, spread your wings
    And promise me just one thing


    (chorus)
    If you ever need a place to cry
    Baby come to me
    Come to me
    I’ve always known that you were born to fly
    But you can come to me
    If the world breaks your heart
    No matter where on earth you are
    You can come to me

    Don’t walk around with the world on your shoulders
    And your highest hopes laying on the ground
    I know you think you’ve gotta try to be my hero
    But don’t you know the stars you wish upon they fall that’s true
    But I still believe in you


    (chorus)


    And those seven seas you sail
    Or the winding road you roam
    Leave you lost and feeling all alone
    Let my heart be your beacon home


    (Beverley Mahood / Thomas Wade)

    Le loup, la biche et le chevalier (une chanson douce)

    Une chanson douce
    Que me chantait ma maman
    En suçant mon pouce
    J'écoutais en m'endormant
    Cette chanson douce
    Je veux la chanter pour toi
    Car ta peau est douce
    Comme la mousse des bois
    La petite biche est aux abois

    Dans le bois se cache le loup ouh!
    Mais le brave chevalier passa
    Il prit la biche dans ses bras
    La, la, la, la.

    La petite biche
    Ce sera toi, si tu veux
    Le loup, on s'en fiche
    Contre lui, nous serons deux
    Une chanson douce
    Pour tous les petits
    Une chanson douce
    Que me chantait ma maman

    O le joli conte que voilà
    La biche en femme se changea
    La, la, la, la
    Et dans les bras du beau chevalier
    Belle princesse elle est restée
    A tout jamais
    Une chanson douce
    Que me chantait ma maman
    En suçant mon pouce
    J'écoutais en m'endormant
    Cette chanson douce
    Je veux la chanter aussi
    Pour toi, ô ma douce
    Jusqu'à la fin de ma vie
    (refrain)


    (Maurice Pon / Henri Salvador)

    Beautiful Boy

    Close your eyes,
    Have no fear,
    The monster’s gone,
    He’s on the run and your mommy’s here,

    (chorus)

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy
    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy
    Before you go to sleep,
    Say a little prayer,
    Every day in every way,
    It’s getting better and better,

    (chorus)

    Out on the ocean sailing away,
    I can hardly wait,
    To see you come of age,
    But I guess we’ll both just have to be patient,
    Cuz it’s a long way to go,
    A hard row to hoe
    Yes it’s a long way to go but in the meantime,
    Before you cross the street,
    Take my hand,
    Life is what happens to you,
    While you’re busy making other plans,

    (chorus)

    Before you go to sleep, say a little prayer,
    Every day, in ev’ry way
    Ot’s getting better and better.
    (chorus)


    (John Lennon)

    In Some Small Way

    There's a tree
    Standing there
    In such an ordinary way
    But as I look around
    Everything keeps changing

    There's a leaf
    On that tree
    And it floats into a stream
    And like everything
    It gets carried away
    to the sea... 

    (chorus)


    But if we give a little of our love away
    Maybe meet in the middle
    Every night and day
    If we could hear just a whisper
    Of what the heart needs to say
    It could sure make a difference
    In some small...
    In some small way
    In your heart lies the key
    That unlocks your destiny
    Look within and we'll find
    Everything we're longing for

    (chorus)

    Oh...
    May you cherish each moment you live
    And know all the love that you give
    Will go on and on and on...
    There's a sky vast and blue
    And it lies deep inside of you
    Breathe it in
    Let it out
    Breathe it in again...
    (chorus)


    (Richard Page / David Tyson)
