SO LOVED (E.Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

I never danced like this
I never sang this way
Never been kissed like this
Never been missed
The way you miss me
When we're apart

Had no one to hold so close
No one to hold me this way
No one to dry my tears
No one to lie beside for hours
Heart to heart

God made the rain
Moon and the sun
You make me feel
So loved

I never walked this road
I never saw this view
Never felt safe like this
Never had faith
Like I have faith
In you

God made the night
God made the day
You make me feel so loved
In every way

Never been kissed like this
Never been missed
The way you miss me

You make me feel
So loved

MAYBE I’LL HEAR FROM YOU (E. Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

I sent you a letter
Ten days ago
To let you know
I’m feelin’ so much better
Hope all is well with you
And yours

I thought it over
Before I sealed it
And then I mailed it
As I grow older
The things I say and do
Count so much more
Than before

Chorus:
Maybe I’ll hear from you
Maybe I won’t
That’s ok
That’s what I tell myself
On a good day

I followed my heart
To somewhere new
Maybe you will too
It’s written in the stars
Though only time will tell
What you’ll do

Maybe I’ll hear...

I sent you a letter
Ten days ago

Maybe I’ll hear...

BETWEEN YOUNG AND OLD (E. Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

Our way might be rocky
On the path we’re ascending
The sea might get choppy
As one part of the journey’s ending
Though the vista in the distance
Looks good to me

If my tears were diamonds
I’d be rich beyond words
But better yet
Like the birds
I’m free

Chorus:
And as the clouds part like curtains
On life’s stage
The sun comes into view
And warms my soul
As my heart that’s been aching
Comes of age
I feel the blessing of your love
Taking hold somewhere
Between young and old

The thoughts in my head
Are pictures of tomorrow
I’ll savor them instead
Of memories born of sorrow
‘Cause that vista in the distance
Looks good to me

If gratitude was gold I’d be richer than kings
But better still
I’ve got wings
To fly free
And as the clouds...
If my tears were diamonds...

YOU WERE MADE FOR ME (E. Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

I could paint your portrait
Write another song
Try an’ show an’ tell you
What you knew all along

You were made for me
You were made for me

Too scared to say it
Put it into words
So I said a prayer
An’ heaven must have heard

You were made for me
You were made for me

The way you put your love
In the center of your touch
The way you claim what’s yours
The way you give so much

On the day I met you
Rainbows were the sign
Showing us the way
We would walk in due time

Don’t see how I missed it
Right there all the while
Right there in your eyes
Announcing with your smile

You were made for me...

WHAT I KNOW (E.Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

I don’t know
Where we’re all headed
Maybe I do
It’s just hard to face
Might be the war
We’ve all dreaded
That could disappear us
Without a trace

Chorus:
What I know is the peace in my heart
The sweet sound soothing my soul
What I know is the joy of singing with you
Love’s song set to the tune
Of gratitude

I don’t know
What’s around the bend
Don’t know where we’ll be
This time next year
Sometimes I wonder
Who will be gone
Who will still be here

What I know...

Do we know
Where we’re headed
Maybe we do
It’s just hard to face
Do we know
If we’re ready
To build a future
For the human race
What I know...

SINCE I’VE KNOWN YOU (E. Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

Since I’ve known you
I’ve changed for the better
Since I’ve known you
To my heart
I’ve been true
Since I’ve known you
Everything’s new
Everything’s new

Since I’ve known you
I’ve been standin’ taller
Since I’ve known you
I see much more
Since I’ve known you
Everything’s new
Everything’s new

New - like the sunrise
New - like spring
New - like the peace I’ve found
Together with you

When I let go
And let love make a way
When I let go
A path appears
Since I’ve known you
That’s what I do
I let go
An’ let love
I let love
I let love make a way

DIVE DEEP (E. Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

Dive deep in the river
Dig a little deeper in the well
Know thyself
And encourage everyone
With the manner
In which you walk
The way your music talk
With words that lift
Instead of criticize
Dive deep in the river
Baptize your soul

On an’ on an’...
It’s a journey within
On an’ on an’...
The learnin’ never ends

Dive deep in the river
Dig a little deeper in the well
Climb a little higher in your mind
The way your body talks
I can tell by the way
That the light in your eyes
Shines on me
Dive deep in the river
Baptize your soul

On and on...

Dive deep...

SHOW ME THE WAY (E. Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

Show me the way, oh Lord
Show me the way
Oh Lord, in the darkest night
Send me the light

Send me my true friends
All over the world in every land
Send me where you want me to go
I’m ready to join the band

Show me the way, oh Lord
Show me the way
Oh Lord, when I’m all alone
Lead me on home

Lead me when I can’t see
My way up the mountain
Lead me over burnin’ sands
An’ revive me at love’s fountain

Show me the way, oh Lord
Show me the way
Oh Lord, in the darkest night
Send me the light

THE LAST PLACE I LOOKED (E. Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

The last place I looked
Is where I found you
Waiting for me
Right from the start

My whole world is new
And all I had to do
Was take a good look inside my heart

That’s where you are
That’s where you’ll be
That’s where you’ve been
All along

I guess I was not ready
Before now
For the gift of love you bring

I guess I was to busy
Somehow
To notice all the heavenly signs
you see

I guess I was not strong enough
Before now
To face the power of love so deep

I guess I’ve waited long enough
Somehow
To be the man
I’ve always wanted to be

The last place I looked
Is where I found you
Waiting for me
Right from the start

Waiting for me
To see what you could see
And finally open up the door
Inside my heart

That’s where you are
That’s where you’ll be
That’s where you’ve been
All along

MAY OUR LOVE (E. Bibb - BMG/Chrysalis)

May our love
Be a feast never ending
May it feed every aching hungry heart
May it be tender comfort embracing
Every child all alone in the dark

May our love be a path ever shining
We can follow through life
Without fear
May our love be a song
Singing joy to the world
Everyone on earth can hear

May our love
Be the peace everlasting
As the wars all around us spread like fire
May our love be the hope for the homeless
Lost at sea as the waves climb higher

May our love be their stars safely guiding
As they journey through the storm
Forced to flee
May our love be the sun
Bringing light to the world
So everyone on earth can see

May our love
Be a home ever waiting
With a friend there to open the door
With a smile to welcome the weary
Who arrive on a strange distant shore

May our love be the key to a future
Where the wounded in war
Mend and heal
May our love be a balm
Spreading over the world
Everyone on earth can feel

May our love be a feast
Never ending
