A Little Help From My Friends
Written by John Lennon, Paurl McCartney, and Leo Sevush
Performed by Beatles, 1967

What would you think if I sang out of tune,
would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song,
and I'll try not to sing out of key.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends.
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends.
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends.

What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day?
(Are you sad because you're on your own?)

No, I get by with a little help from my friends.
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends.
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends.

Do you need anybody?
I need somebody to love.
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love.
Would you believe in a love at first sight?
Yes, I'm certain that it happens all the time.
What do you see when you turn out the light?
I can't tell you but I know it's mine.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends.
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends.
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends.

Do you need anybody?
I just need someone to love.
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends.
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends.
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends.
...with a little help from my friends.

Angel
Written by
Preformed by Lionel Ritchie

I just want to tell you all the things you are
And all the things you mean to me
You've been with me forever
Through the changes in my life
Through all the tears and laughter

When I find myself believing there's no place to go
When I feel the loneliness inside my heart

You're the answer to my prayers
And you're with me everywhere
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need tonight
Give me shelter from the rain
You breathe life in me again
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need to know, tonight
Life is just a moment
We're blowing in the wind
We're trying to find a friend
And only time can tell us
If win or if we lose
And who will stand beside us
When there's darkness all around me
You're the light I see
When I need someone to ease my troubled mind

You're the answer to my prayers
And you're with me everywhere
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need tonight
Give me shelter from the rain
You breathe life in me again
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need to know, tonight

You're all I need tonight
All I need tonight
All I need tonight
You're my angel

You're the answer to my prayers
And you're with me everywhere
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need tonight
Give me shelter from the rain
You breathe life in me again
You're my angel, my miracle, you're all I need to know, tonight

Angels Among Us
Written By : Becky Hobbs / Don Goodman , 1993
Performed By : Alabama

(prelude : spoken )
I was walking home from school on a cold winter day
took a short cut through the woods and I lost my way
it was gettin' late and I was scared and alone
then a kind old man took my hand and led me home
Momma couldn't see him,
but he was standin' there
I Knew in my Heart he was the answer to my prayers

(chorus : ) (oh,)
I Believe there are Angels Among Us
sent down to us from some where up above
they come to you and me in our darkest hours
to show us how to live,
to teach us how to give
to guide us with a light of love

When life held troubled times and had me down on my knees
There's always been someone to come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger to lend a helping hand
a phone call from a friend just to say, "I understand"
Ain't it kinda funny at the dark end of the road
someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope (Repeat Chorus)

(bridge : )
They wear so many faces,
show up in the strangest places,
grace us with their mercies in our time of need

(Repeat Chorus)

Because You Loved Me  
Written by Diane Warren
Performed by Celine Dion, 1993

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful, baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through, through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me, ooh oh oh

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak [You were my strength]
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

Oh You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

He-e... [You were my strength when I was weak] ...e-ey
[You were my voice when I couldn't speak] My heart
[You were my eyes when I couldn't see]
You saw the best there was in me
[Lifted me up when I couldn't reach] Oh oh
[You gave me faith 'coz you] believed
I'm everything I am because you loved me
Oh oh I'm everything I am because you loved me

Calling All Angels
Written by Jane Siberry
Performed by Jane Siberry

Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah
Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Domenica, Mary Angelica
Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronilla
Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir
and all the rest

a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
and high above the church bells start to ring
and as the heaviness the body oh the heaviness settles in
somewhere you can hear a mother sing

then it's one foot then the other as you step out onto the road
how much weight? how much weight?
then it's how long? and how far?
and how many times before it's too late?

calling all angels calling all angels
walk me through this one
don't leave me alone
calling all angels calling all angels
we're cryin' and we're hurtin'
and we're not sure why...
and every day you gaze upon the sunset
with such love and intensity
it's almost...it's almost as if ...
if you could only crack the code
then you'd finally understand what this all means

but if you could...do you think you would
trade in all the pain and suffering?
ah, but then you'd miss
the beauty of the light upon this earth
and the sweetness of the leaving

calling all angels calling all angels
walk me through this one
don't leave me alone
callin' all angels callin' all angels
we're tryin' we're hopin'
we're hurtin' we're lovin'
we're cryin' we're callin'
because we're not sure how this goes

Change the World
Written by Tommy Sims, Gordon Kennedy, Wayne Kirkpatrick (1996)
Performed by Eric Clapton

If I could reach the stars, I'd pull one down for you
Shine it on my heart, so you could see the truth
That this love I have inside, is everything it seems
But for now I find, it's only in my dreams
That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think my love was really something good
Baby, if I could, change the world
If I could be king, even for a day
I'd take you as my queen, I'd have it no other way
And our love will rule, in this kingdom we have made
Till then I'd be a fool, wishin' for the day
That I can change the world,
I would be the sunlight in your universe.
You would think my love was really something good,
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.
I could change the world,
I would be the sunlight in your universe.
You would think my love was really something good,
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.

Circle of Life
Music by Elton John, lyrics by Tim Rice
Performed by Elton John

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

(Chorus)
In the Circle of Life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps the great and small on the endless round

(Chorus repeats)
On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Life.

Colors of the Wind
Written by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz
Performed by Vanissa Williams, 1995

You think you own whatever land you land on
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know ev'ry rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned ?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain ?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind ?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind ?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
In a cirle, in a hoop that never ends

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or let the eagle tell you there he's been
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain ?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind ?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind ?

How high does the sycamore grow ?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know

And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper-skinned
We just sing with all the voices of the mountain
Need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the earth and still
All you'll own is earth until
You can paint with all colors of the wind

(Everything I Do) I Do it For You
Written by music by Brian Adams, R. J. Lange and M. Kamen
Performed by Bryan Adams, from "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," 1991

Look into my eyes, you will see what you mean to me.
Search your heart, search your soul,
and when you find me there, you'll search no more.
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for.
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for.
You know it's true, everything I do, I do it for you.

Look into your heart,
you will find there's nothing there to hide.
Take me as I am, take my life.
I would give it all, I would sacrifice.
Don't tell me it's not worth fighting for.
I can't help it, there's nothing I want more.
You know it's true, everything I do, I do it for you.
There's no love like your love,
and no other could give more love.
There's nowhere unless you're there,
all the time, all the way, yeah.
Oh, you can't tell me it's not worth tryin' for.
I can't help it, there's nothing I want more.
Yeah, I would fight for you.
I'd lie for you, walk the wire for you, yeah,
I'd die for you.

You know it's true, everything I do, oh, I do it for you.

For He's a Jolly Good Fellow

For he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow
And so say all of us
And so say all of us
And so say all of us
For he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow
And so say all of us

When you're feeling lost in the night,
When you feel your world just ain't right
Call on me, I will be waiting
Count on me, I will be there
Anytime the times get too tough,
Anytime your best ain't enough
I'll be the one to make it better,
I'll be there to protect you,

If there is a mountain to move

I will be your fortress, tall and strong

And I'll have to leave it be

Get Together
Written by Chec Powers
Performed by The Youngbloods, 1963

Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at you command

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Right now ... Right now.....

Go Light Your World
Written by Chris Rice
Performed by Kathy Troccoli

There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning,
Some dark and cold
There is a spirit who brings the fire
Ignites his candle and makes his home

Carry your candle,
Run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle and go light your world

Frustrated brothers,
see how he's tried to
Light his own candle some other way
See now our sister,
She's been robbed and lied to
Still holds a candle without a flame
So carry your candle,
run to the darkness
Seek out the lonely,
the tired and worn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle and
go light your world

We are a family whose hearts are blazing
We raise our candles and light up the sky
Praying to our Father, "In the name of Jesus
Make us a beacon in darkest times!"

Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle and go light your world.

Go The Distance or Hero's Welcome
Written by david Zippel from the Disney movie "Hercules"
Performed by Michael Bolton

I have often dreamed of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying this is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday, I can go the distance
I will find my way if I can be strong
I know every mile will be worth my while
When I go the distance I'll be right where I belong

Down an unknown road to embrace my fate
Though that road may wander, it will lead me to you
And a thousand years would be worth the wait
It might take a lifetime, but somehow I'll see it through

And I won't look back, I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track, no, I won't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope, but I won't lose hope
'Til I go the distance, and my journey is complete
But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is measured by his heart

Like a shooting star I will go the distance
I will search the world, I will face its harms
I don't care how far, I can go the distance
'Til I find my hero's welcome, waiting in your arms

I will search the world, I will face its harms
'Til I find my hero's welcome, waiting in your arms

Greatest Love of All
Written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed
Performed by Whitney Houston

I believe that children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfilled my need
A lonely place to be and so I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I fail, if I succeed at least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me, they can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all inside of me
The greatest love of all is easy to achieve

Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all

I believe that children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us of how we used to be

I decided long ago never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I fail, if I succeed at least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me, they can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all inside of me

The greatest love of all is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all
And if by chance that special place that you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place, find your strength in love

He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother
Written By Bob Russel and Bobby Scott
Performed by Neil Diamond - 1970 and other various artists

The road is long with many awaiting turns
That lead us to who knows where, who knows where
But I'm strong, strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So long we go
His welfare is my concern
No burden is he to bear, we'll get there
For I know
he would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I’m laden at all,
I am laden with sadness that
everyone's heart isn't filled with the gladness
I am alone for one and other

It's so long long road
From there is no return
while we're on the way to live why not share
And the load doesn't weigh me down at all

He ain't heavy , he's my brother
He's my brother
He ain't heavy
He's my brother
He's my brother
He ain't heavy
He's my brother

Hero
Written by Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff
Performed by Mariah Caren, 1993

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

It's a long road
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time
You'll find the way

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

I Believe I Can Fly
Written by R. Kelly
Performed by various artists

I used to think that I could not go wrong 
And life was nothing but that an awful song 
But now I know the meaning of true love 
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms 

If I can see it, then I can do it 
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it 

I believe I can fly 
I believe I can touch the sky 
I think about it every night and day 
Spread my wings and fly away 
I believe I can soar 
I see me running through that open door 
I believe I can fly 
I believe I can fly 
Oh I believe I can fly 
See I was on the verge of breaking down 
Sometimes inside us, it can seem so long 
There are miracles in life I must achieve 
But first I know it starts inside of me 

Could I believe in it? 
If I can see it, then I can be it 
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it 

I believe I can fly...... 

I Hope You Dance
Written by Mark D. Sanders/Tia Sellers
Performed by Lee Ann Womack

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

I Turn To You
Recorded and Arranged by: Guy Roche
Performed by Christina Aguilera

When I'm lost in the rain,
In your eyes I know
I'll find the light to light my way.
And when I'm scared and losing ground;
When my world is going crazy,
you can turn it all around.

And when I'm down you're there;
pushing me to the top.
You're always there;
giving me all you've got.

For a shield from the storm;
For a friend; for a love
To keep me safe and warm,
I turn to you.

For the strength to be strong;
For the will to carry on;
For everything you do;
For everything that's true,
I turn to you.

When I lose my will to win,
I just reach for you and
I can reach the sky again.
I can do anything,

'Cause your love is so amazing;
'cause your love inspires me.
And when I need a friend,
you're always on my side;
Giving me faith that gets me
through the night.

For a shield from the storm;
For a friend; for a love
To keep me safe and warm,
I turn to you.

For the strength to be strong;
For the will to carry on;
For everything you do;
For everything that's true,
I turn to you.

For the arms to be my shelter
through all the rain;
For truth that will never change;
For someone to lean on;
for a heart I can rely on
through anything;

 

For that one who I can run to....
I turn to you.
For a shield from the storm;
For a friend; for a love
To keep me safe and warm,
I turn to you.

For the strength to be strong;
For the will to carry on;
For everything you do;
For everything that's true,
I turn to you.

For a shield from the storm;
For a friend; for a love
To keep me safe and warm,
I turn to you.

For the strength to be strong;
For the will to carry on;
For everything you do;
For everything that's true...
For everything you do;
For everything that's true,
I turn to you...

If I Could
Performed by Ray Charles

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 can never cry your tears
But I would
If I could

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'd have tried to change the world I brought to you to
And there isn't very much that I can do
But I would
If I could
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 can never cry your tears
But I would
If I could
Yes I would
Yes I would
If I could

I'm Your Angel
Written by Celine Dion/R. Kelly
Performed by Celine Dion

No mountain's too high for you to climb
All you have to do is have some climbing faith, oh yes
No rivers too wide for you to make it across
All you have to do is believe it when you pray
And then you will see
The morning will come
And everyday will be bright as the sun
All of your fears
Cast them on me
I just wanted you to see 

I'll be your cloud up in the sky

I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I am your Angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your Angel
I'm your Angel 

I saw your teardrops, and I heard you cry
All you need is time
Seek me and you shall find
You have everything and you're still lonely
It don't have to be this way
Let me show you a better day
Oh and then you will see
The morning will come
And all of your days will be bright as the sun
All of your fears
ust cast them on me
How can I make you see 


I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I am your Angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your Angel
I'm Your Angel 
And when it's time to face the storm
I'll be right by your side
Grace will keep us safe and warm
I know we will survivie
And when it seems as if your end is drawing near
Don't you dare give up the fight
Just put your trust beyond the skies 


I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I am your Angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your Angel 

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I am your Angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your Angel 


I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I'm your Angel

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears,

It's time we are aware.
It's a small world after all.

I Volunteer
Written by Will Robinson/Larry Boone/Tammy Hyler
Performed by Collin Ray, 1995

Looks like your feelin' like
The rain won't ever stop
Life's left you standing there
One against the odds
Fro now on you need to know
You don't have to stand alone

When the world turns you in circles
And the wind is at your face
When you need somewhere to run to
I know a place
If you want someone who's willing
To lay down their heart
Someone to dry your tears
I'm here
I volunteer
A shoulder, a caring voice
To tell you it's ok
Arms meant for holding you
Whenever your afraid
I've got that and more to spare
Just say the word and I'll be there

When the world turns you in circles
And the wind is at your face
When you need somewhere to run to
I know a place
If you want someone who's willing
To lay down their heart
Someone to dry your tears
I'm here
I volunteer

Lean On Me
Written by Bill Withers
Performed by various artists

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show
Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road

Let's Hear It For the Volunteers
Written by David Tamulevich and Michael Hough
Performed by Mustard's Retreat

Jenny is a baker and she works all night.
She smiles like an angel on her
Mountain bike.
She made the cookies and they taste
Just right.
Jenny is a volunteer.

They open up the hall in the afternoon.
They help performers to stay in tune.
They’ll be cleaning up by the light of the moon
Let’s hear it for the volunteers!

Chorus
And it’s one, two, three, hey!
Help them put the chairs away.
If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be here.
Let’s hear it for the volunteers.

Kathy is the one in the yellow pants
She loves the music, but she can’t dance,
But with her computer now she writes grants.
Let’s hear it for the volunteers!

There goes Spike, he’s seen it all.
But he’s the one who let the curtain fall.
I was changing clothes, and I mooned you all
Let’s hear it for the volunteers!

Chorus

Then there’s Andy, he works the sound.
Thunderstorm’s coming, and he looks around.
He’s all patched in, but he’s just lost his ground.
Let’s hear it for the volunteers!

It ain’t for money, ‘cause they work for free.
We’re a great dysfunctional family.
It’s all for the music and the company
Let’s hear it for the volunteers

Man In the Mirror
Written by Glen Ballard and Siedah Garrett
Performed by Michael Jackson, 1988

I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life
It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right...

As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin' my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I, to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs
A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man's soul
They follow each other on the wind ya' know
'Cause they got nowhere to go
That's why I want you to know

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)
(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)

I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It's time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?

A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart
And a washed-out dream
(Washed-Out dream)
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya' see
Cause they got no place to be
That's why I'm starting with me
(Starting with me!)

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
(Ooh!)
I'm asking him to change his ways
(Ooh!)
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself and then make a change)

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
(Ooh!)
I'm asking him to change his ways
(Change his ways-Ooh!)
And no message could've been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make that...
(Take a look at yourself and then make that...)
Change!
I'm starting with the man in the mirror,
(Man in the mirror-Oh yeah!)
I'm asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
No message could have been any clearer
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
(Take a look at yourself and then make the change)
(You gotta get it right, while you got the time)
('Cause when you close your heart)
You can't close your... your mind!
(Then you close your... mind!)
That man, that man, that man, that man
With that man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror, oh yeah!)
That man, that man, that man
I'm asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
You know... That man
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself and then make a change)
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah
(Oh yeah!)
Gonna feel real good now!
Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah!
Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah
(Ooooh...)
Oh no, no no...
I'm gonna make a change
It's gonna feel real good!
Come on!
(Change...)
Just lift yourself
You know
You've got to stop it. Yourself!
(Yeah!-Make that change!)
I've got to make that change, today!
Hoo!
(Man in the mirror)
You got to
You got to not let yourself...
Brother...
Hoo!
(Yeah!-Make that change!)
You know-I've got to get that man, that man...
(Man in the mirror)
You've got to
You've got to move! Come on! Come on!
You got to...
Stand up! Stand up! Stand up!
(Yeah-Make That Change)
Stand up and lift yourself, now!
(Man in the mirror)
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Aaow!

You know... -- (Change...) -- Make that change

Music of My Heart
Written by Diane Warren
Performed by 'N Sync and Gloria Estefan

You'll never know, what you've done for me
What your faith in me, has done for my soul....
You'll never know the gift, you've given
I'll carry it with me (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Through the days ahead, I'll think of days before
You made me hope for something better
And made me reach for somethin' more

You taught me to run, you taught me to fly
Helped me to free the me inside,
helped me hear the music of my heart ...
Helped me hear the music of my heart
You opened my eyes, you opened the door
To somethin' I've never known before
And your love, is the music of my heart
(Music of my heart)

You were the one, always on my side
Always standin' by, seein' me through ...
You were the song, that always made me sing
I'm singin' this for you, everywhere I go
think of where I've been
And of the one who knew me better
Than anyone ever will again

You taught me to run, you taught me to fly
Helped me to free the me inside
Helped me hear the music of my heart
Helped me hear the music of my heart

You opened my eyes, you opened the door
To somethin' I've never known before
And your love
Is the music of my heart

What you taught me
Only your love could ever teach me
You got through when
No one could reach me
BEFORE......
'Cause you always saw in me
All the best that I could be
It was you who set me free

You taught me to run, you taught me to fly
Helped me to free the me inside
Helped me hear the music of my heart
Helped me hear the music of my heart...

You taught me to run, you taught me to fly
Helped me to free the me inside
Helped me hear the music of my heart
Helped me hear the music of my heart
You opened my eyes, you opened the door
To somethin' I've never known before
And your love
Is the music of my heart
Music of my heart
Is the music of My heart!

Point of Light
Written by Don Schlitz and Tom Schuyler, 1991
Performed by Randy Travis

There's a point when you cannot walk away
When you have to stand up straight and tall
And mean the words you say
There's a point you must decide just to do it 'cause it's right
That's when you become a point of light
There's a darkness that everyone must face
It wants to take what's good and fair and lay it all to waste
And that darkness covers everything in sight
Until it meets a single point of light

All it takes is a point of light a ray of hope in the darkest night.
If you see what's wrong and you try to make it right
you will be a point of light.

There are heroes whose names we never hear
A dedicated army of quiet volunteers
Reaching out to feed the hungry reaching out to save the land
Reaching out to their fellow men
All it takes is a point of light a ray of hope in the darkest night.
If you see what's wrong and you try to make it right
you will be a point of light.

There are dreamers who are making dreams come true
Taking time to teach the children there's nothing they can't do.
Giving shelter to the homeless giving hope to those without.
Isn't that what this land's all about.

One by one form the mountains to the sea
Points of light are calling out to you and me
All it takes is a point of light
A ray of hope in the darkest night.
If you see what's wrong and you try to make it right

All it takes is a point of light a ray of hope in the darkest night.
If you see what's wrong and you try to make it right
you will be a point of light.

Small World
Peformed by Huey Lewis and the News

All around the world
There are people like you and me
From the poorest beggar in the street
To the richest king and queen

Some people take
And then they never give
You gotta learn to give and take
If ya want to learn to live
In a small world

Now we can Fight one another
Like they to on T.V.
Or we can
Help one another
The way it's supposed to be

If we all give a little
It could really mean a lot
It's a small world
But it's the only one we've got
Small world

Thank You for Being a Friend
Theme from ‘Golden Girls’
by Andrew Gold

Thank you for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
You’re heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidante
And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew
You would see, the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say ‘Thank you for being a friend’

That's What Friends Are For
Written by Bacharach, 1985
Performed by various artists

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for
Well you came in loving me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

Oh and then for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes and know
The words are coming from my heart
And then if you can remember

United We Stand
Written by The Brotherhood of Man,
Performed by various artists

There's nowhere in the world that I would rather be
Than with you my love
And there's nothing in the world that I would rather see
Than your smile my love

For united we stand
Divided we fall
And if our backs should ever be against the wall
We'll be together, together, you and I
For united we stand
Divided we fall
And if our backs should ever be against the wall
We'll be together, together, you and I

And if the world about you falls apart my love
Then I'll still be here
And if the going gets too hard along the way
Just you call, I'll hear

Wake Up Everybody
Written by John Whitehead
Performed by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes

Wake up everybody no more sleepin in bed
No more backward thinkin time for thinkin ahead
The world has changed so very much
From what it used to be so
there is so much hatred war an' poverty
Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen to whatcha have to say
Cause they're the ones who's coming up and the world is in their hands
when you teach the children teach em the very best you can.

Chorus
The world won't get no better if we just let it be
The world won't get no better we gotta change it yeah, just you and me.

Wake up all the doctors make the ol' people well
They're the ones who suffer an' who catch all the hell
But they don't have so very long before the Judgement Day
So won'tcha make them happy before they pass away.
Wake up all the builders time to build a new land

I know we can do it if we all lend a hand
The only thing we have to do is put it in our mind
Surely things will work out they do it every time.

Repeat Chorus.

We Are The World
Written by Michal Jackson and Lionel Ritchie, 1985
Performed by various artists

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
and its time to lend a hand to life
There greatest gift of all

We cant go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we're making
We're saving out own lives
its true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your heart so they'll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to brend
So we all must lend a helping hand

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we're making
We're saving out own lives
its true we'll make a better day
Just you and me


When you're down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe theres no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we're making
We're saving out own lives
its true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

When You Believe
Written by Stephen Schwartz and Babyface
Performed by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, 1997

Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we know we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
And now I am standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles
When you believe
(When you believe)
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
(You can achieve)
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fear
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see your way safe through the rain
Thought of a still resilient voice
Says love is very near

There can be miracles (miracles)
When you believe
(When you believe)
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
(You can achieve)
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

You will when you
You will when you believe
Just believe
Just believe
You will when you believe

The Wind Beneath My Wings
Written by Larry Henley and Jeff Silbar
Performed by Bette Midler - Movie "Beaches" 1982

It must have been cold there in my shadow
to never have sunlight on your face.
You've always been content to let me shine.
You've always walked one step behind.

I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength,
only a face without a name,
and I never once heard you complain.

Did you ever no that you're my hero
and everything that I'd like to be.
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the Wind beneath my Wings.
You might have thought it went unnoticed
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth
That I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero
and everything that I'd like to be.
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the Wind beneath my Wings.

Wherever You Will Go
Written by:
Performed by: The Calling from the Coyote Ugly

So lately, been wondering
Who will be there to take my place
When I'm gone you'll need love to light the shadows on your face
If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then between the sand and stone, could you make it on your own

Chorus:
If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high, or down low, I'll go wherever you will go

And maybe, I'll find out
A way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you, through the darkest of your days
If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then I hope there's someone out there who can bring me back to you

Chorus:

Run away with my heart
Run away with my hope
Run away with my love

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In your heart, in your mind, I'll stay with you for all time

Chorus

You Gotta Be
Written by Des'ree
Performed by Des'ree

CHORUS 1:
Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted
Don't be ashamed to cry CHORUS 2:
You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Herald what your mother said

Readin' the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
my oh my heh, hey CHORUS 2
Don't ask no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning
You can't stop it, if you try to

This time it's danger staring you in the face
oh oh oh
Remember
CHORUS 1

My oh my heh, hey, hey
CHORUS 2 til fade

You Light Up My Life
Written by Joe Brooks

So many nights, i sit by my window
waiting for someone to sing me his song
so many dreams i kept deep inside me
alone in the dark, now you've come along

And you light up my life
you give me hope to carry on
you light up my days
and fill my nights with song
Rolling at sea, adrift on the water
could it finally be, i'm turning for home
finally a chance to say, hey, i love you
oh never again to be alone

And you, light up my life
you give me hope to carry on
you light up my days
and fill my nights with song
it can't be wrong when it feels so right
cause, you light up my life

You've Got A Friend
Written by Carole King
Preformed by Carole King/James Taylor

When you're down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nightYou just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep you head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at you door
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be thereAin't it good to know that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend
