Track Name: Jeff Meegan - DANCING WITH YOU
Lyrics:

I found me a paradise
I never knew
One dance and then I would discover
A paradise in you

With your hand in mine
Out on the floor
The talk was small but the feeling tremendous
A paradise for sure

I fell in love with your sweet and tender glow
Some how the music told me
Never let her go

One simple fact remains
Somehow to be true
In paradise now and forever
I’ll be dancing with you
Track Name: Donna Byrne - ADORE
Lyrics:

Got a special wish that means so much to me
Hope someday I'll be the one you care for
Like when you hold me safe and warm in all my dreams
Precious dear, you're the one love I adore…

May seem funny but each time I think of you
Troubles I'm going through fade in a heartbeat
I feel your presence and then life is heavenly
Thanks to you
The one love I adore

I've been searching for so long
Trying to find my rainbows end
Have we passed, like ships in the night
Hope one day I won't have to pretend.

If it's crazy then I guess I'll be a fool
Long as my heart says you'll love me forever
The world's not big enough to keep you far from me
Precious dear, the one that I adore
Track Name: Jeff Meegan and the Brad Hatfield Trio - WHEN IT RAINS I'M YOURS
Lyrics:

Dark skies over the trees
But you’re safe here with me
I’m your shelter in the storm
Cause baby when it rains I’m yours

Leaves go blowing by
Not a star to shine in your eyes
Go on and lock the door
Cause baby when it rains I’m yours

A cold damp night
But it’s warm inside
There’s a table set for two
Go on let it rain
I won’t complain
If it last’s the whole night through

The flicker of candlelight
Soon may be our only light
Look it’s just begun to pour
And baby when it rains I’m yours

A cold damp night
But it’s warm inside
There’s a table set for two
Go on let it rain
I won’t complain
If it last’s the whole night through

The puddles are growing high
And I’ve got one wish on my mind
That it rain forever more
Cause baby when it rains I’m yours
Track Name: Teresa ines - CAI O SOL
Lyrics:

cai o sol / the sun goes down
e a tarde vem / and the evening arrives
nos mostrar o azul / showing us the blue light
de mais um dia / of one more day
que se vai / that's gone

como o sol / like the sun
o meu coracao / my heart
quer iluminar / wants to make (your eyes) brighter
o seu olhar / your eyes
e lhe ver sorrir / and see you smile

pranto cai / tears fall down (fall out ??)- come to my eyes
e nao e azul / and they are not blue
sem amor, meu bem / without love, my dear (my love)
nao sou ninguem / I'm nobody
nao sou ninguem / I'm nobody

tarde vai(cai o sol)/ the evening passes(the sun goes down)
e o meu amor / and my love(heart)
quer buscar voce / wants to come and get you
p'ra o dia escurecer/ so the day can end
em paz, enfim... / in peace, finally
cai o sol / the sun goes down
cai o sol / the sun goes down
cai o sol / the sun goes down
Track Name: Jeff Meegan and Brad Hatfield - AIN'T LIFE GRAND
Lyrics:

Amazing and yet it’s true
You found me and I found you
Now my heart is saying
Ain’t life grand

That arrow it hit the spot
And into my arms you dropped
Now my heartstrings playing
Ain’t life grand

All around me birds and bee’s
Have made it hard to see
But birds and bees must always lead the way

Now that I have you my dear
The skies are far from grey
There’s only two words left for us to say
I do

The world was an awful mess
Till I saw you in that dress
Now my heart keeps telling me
Ain’t life grand
Track Name: Alex MacDougall - DAYS OF SUMMER
Lyrics:

The days of summer
Always feel like paradise
The gift of sunlight’s warmth upon the sand
The endless hours we knew
Walking hand in hand
For love is always new
In days of summer

The days of summer
Keep me yearning all year long
For gentle winds dancing through the trees
For fireflies, fireworks
And oceans breeze
And your lips kissing me
In days of summer

The days of summer
Go flying by so quickly
They always leave you
Wanting so much more
But in my memories
I know that you will be
With me ever more
In days of summer
Track Name: Jeff Meegan and Brad Hatfield - AFTER TONIGHT
Lyrics:

Drink up the moon
Drink up the wine
Drink up every dance we share while there is time
The hours go so quickly when romance is in bloom
And to night will be ending all to soon

Savor the laughs
Savor the melodies
Savor every breeze that wanders thought the leaves
When tomorrow comes you will have me by your side
There forever more after tonight

Sharing your company far exceeds
Anyone’s company before
I can’t recall my heart feeling this way before

Remember the meal
Remember the time and day
For nothing throughout our lives will be the same
I’ve been waiting for you for all of my life
But now I’ll wait no more
After tonight
Track Name: Jeff Meegan and Brad Hatfield - IT'S NO MATTER
Lyrics

No Matter what you say
Or do in your whole life
I hope you’ll always know
You own the biggest part of me

It started on the day
You came into my life
With just one look at you
Everything had changed

The thoughts that called me then
All seemed trivial
Things I thought where problems
Where erased
I never was prepared for how
My heart grew twice in size
With a look into those precious eyes

Though years they float away
And age may change appearances
I hope you’ll know
Right from the start
You’ve always had the biggest part
You’ll always own the biggest part of me
Track Name: Jeff Meegan and Brad Hatfield - NEXT TO ME
Lyrics:

When we talk
Until the morning
I’ll fight the sleep away
Brush away what comes tomorrow
Just to stay here in today
Every word is inspiration
Like a song about to bloom
And an hour of conversation
Always ends to soon

When we speak about the future
I will always be sincere
I don’t care about the future
If you’re not somehow near
For what good is this connection
If my dear you don’t believe
That tomorrow I’ll be here
And you’ll be next to me
Track Name: Jeff Meegan and Brad Hatfield - ALL YOU ARE
Lyrics:

All you are
Is better far
Than all I ever have dreamed

All you are
Is bright as a star
Without all the space in between

My only way to get through the day
Is hoping I’ll be near to you
For no imitation or slight admiration will do it’s true

All you are
Is fine caviar
And every sweet word I can sing
It’s hard to believe such a wonder could be
But all you are
You are
Track Name: Jeff Meegan and Brad Hatfield - AS LOVELY AS YOU
Lyrics:

There’s a breeze that moves through the night
To gently kiss your hair
There’s a bird who sings you a lovely song
There are words that sound forever sweet as daylight draws to close
And star to dance through skies inside your dreams

There’s a poem describing the way your gentle touch persuades
There are tears we share when love is true
There’s a million lovely things that this life will always bring
But none as lovely as you
Track Name: Alex MacDougall - HERE ON EARTH
Lyrics:

I like the way you hypnotize me
You’ve got me feeling not so well
I think it must be your smile
Cause I’ve seen it before
And it always makes me fuzzy

Could be that I am now succumbing
To some hot long forgotten spell
You’re close enough now to catch me
If I should fall
For your eye’s they make me dizzy

You must have learned those tricks in heaven
For there’s nothing like them here on earth

Perhaps I need a doctor who
Practices some rare voodoo
Maybe I should see my shrink
Or better yet a good stiff drink

I like the feeling that you give me
Right here between my head and toes
You know I cannot resist
For they’ll so be a kiss
And I love the milk and honey

You must have learned those tricks in heaven
For there’s nothing like them here on earth
Track Name: Gailyn Addis - DON'T DO ME ANY FAVORS
Lyrics:

You let me go
Now you want me back again
But I must wait
for you to leave your other friend
DON’T DO ME ANY FAVORS
Don’t ask me to love you

This other love
Doesn’t let you have your way
And now you’re sorry
you ever let me get away
DON’T DO ME ANY FAVORS
Don’t ask me to love you

If there’s an old cliché for you
that would best apply
You’d be the man who
never missed the water
till the well ran dry

There’s just one thing
before I say goodbye ‘ol pal
Don’t count on me
You’d better keep that other gal
DON’T DO ME ANY FAVORS
Don’t ask me to love you

INSTRUMENTAL SECTION (verse music)

If there’s an old cliché for you
that would best apply
You’d be the man who
never missed the water
till the well ran dry

There’s just one thing
before I say goodbye ‘ol pal
Don’t count on me
You’d better keep that other gal
DON’T DO ME ANY FAVORS
Don’t ask me to love you
Don’t ask me to love you.
Track Name: Donna McElroy - IT'S JUST THE THRILL OF IT ALL
Lyrics:

VERSE:
You left me wanting more
And it was more that I could take
These funny, twisted words are what remain
But words have always caused more trouble
Than their worth by more than double
Three nights turned to never again
So who's to blame?

CHORUS:
The first night we met
I held you
I'll never forget
How my heart stood still

The stars in the sky
Came straight from your eyes
No shadow could darken your smile

The next night we kissed
Then you told me
The secret to love
Is in how far you can fall

I'll never forget
On that last night we met
How you showed me
The thrill of it all
Track Name: Jeff Meegan - DREAM THIS DREAM
Lyrics:

A Dictionary has so many words
But from A to Z they’ll never do
To describe the moment love appeared
The moment I saw you

Verse 1
Will you be the one I call my darling
Will we leave the world behind in our embrace
Can we share a single kiss under the moonlit sky
That twinkles in the eyes
That haunt me so

Verse 2
My heart beats for only you
And will long for you until the end of time
Shall the soul that needs your love
Dream alone every night
Or do you dream this dream too
Track Name: Jeff Meegan - I'M WAITING HERE MY LOVE
Lyrics:

Where are you
Every moment of my life
I'm waiting
Spend the hours anticipating
The sweetness of your kiss
The feel of heaven's bliss

Where are you
When the sun is setting low
And fading
That's when this lonely heart
Turns blue

I've lost at love before
And cocktails and repoire
Never seemed to fit the bill
After all this time
It's sad to say
I'm searching for you still
So

Where are you
When will these empty days be over
I'm waiting here my love
For you
