Song Description:

Video — Two people are lying awake in bed in a hotel room. The sun is about to rise, ending their night of passion.

Target Market/Audience:

Unfortunately, many people have at one time or another formed an intimate relationship that was destined to be short lived. Although not a happy song, it is meant to evoke an emotional response, cause those familiar with such a situation to reflect, and to be a warning to those so tempted.


Man
(Verse 1)
This dream we’ve shared tonight will soon be over.
Bringing us back to the light of day.
And I feel so sad, so empty.

Woman What we have will soon be gone.
Oh I wish that we could only find a way
to hold on and hold back the dawn.


Duet
(Chorus)
Hold back the dawn
So I can go on holding you.
So I won’t have to let you go
and live life bleeding blue.
Hold back the dawn
So I can go on loving you.
‘Cause when you go
I don’t know what I’ll do.

Man (Bridge)
Once my life was simple
No forbidden love.

Woman Then we met and you became
the one I’ve been thinking of.


Man
(Verse 2)
It seems unfair now that it’s over.
We say we wish the breaks had gone our way.
But it makes no sense for us to start lying.

Woman We knew long ago that it was wrong.
But we played and now we must pay with crying.
Unless we find a way to hold on and hold back the dawn.


Duet
(Chorus)
Hold back the dawn
So I can go on holding you.
So I won’t have to let you go
and live life bleeding blue.
Hold back the dawn
So I can go on loving you.
‘Cause when you go
I don’t know what I’ll do.

(Tag)
Hold back the dawn
Cause I want to spend my life loving you.

Song Description:

Video — A couple is reconfirming their committment to one another.

Target Market/Audience:

This song was written to be played at weddings.


Woman
(Verse 1)
When I was young, I had my life all planned out.
One day I’d meet my dream come true.
Two kids, a white fence, a little house.
We’d stroll through life like lovers do.

(Lift)
I recall the first time I looked into your eyes.
I saw my knight in shinning armor in disguise.


Duet
(Chorus)
You say you will cherish me.
Nobody else will have your heart.
You say you will care for me.
You say that we will never part.
Cross your heart.


Man
(Verse 2)
When I was young, I had it all figured out.
Love for me was just a game.
To settle down was not what I was all about.
I thought girls were all the same.

(Lift)
I recall the first time you looked into my eyes.
I couldn’t wait to cast all my rules aside.


Duet
(Chorus)
You say you will honor me.
Nobody else will have your heart.
You say you will stand by me.
No matter what we’ll never part.
Cross your heart.

You say that we will never part.

Woman No matter what.

Duet Cross your heart.

Man You say you will honor me.

Woman I cross my heart.
You say you will cherish me.

Man I cross my heart.
You say you will stand by me.

Woman I cross my heart.
You say you will care for me.

Man I cross my heart.

Ooo – oo – o – o – – oo – o – oo – oo – ooh.

Song Description:

Video — Two people express gratitude for having met. It was something they did not imagine.

Target Market/Audience:

This song is meant to be played before the wedding ceremony.


Woman
(Verse 1)
I know now the road to heaven is not a straight line.
I've stumbled and I've fallen down it seems a million times.
I lost faith in fairytales that end in the words "I Do."
But that was then, before I found you.


Duet
(Chorus)
I found you. (I found you.)
Now gray skies have turned deep blue. (I love you.)
All my hopes and daydreams have come true. (They have come true.)
I thank the Lord. (I thank the Lord.)
For all that he has put me through. (The winding road led straight to you.)
I can do "For better or worse" now that I found you.


Man
(Verse 2)
I could never understand the fuss made over love.
Free time, parties, hanging with friends always seemed enough.
Playing house and raising kids are not things that I do.
But that was then, before I found you.


Duet
(Chorus)
I found you. (I found you.)
Now gray skies have turned deep blue. (I love you.)
All my hopes and daydreams have come true. (They have come true.)
I thank the Lord. (I thank the Lord.)
For all that he has put me through. (The winding road led straight to you.)
I can do "For better or worse" now that I found you.


Man
(Bridge)
I sure hope you feel the way I do.

Woman I hope that you mean what you say
cause I feel the same way too.


Duet
(Chorus)
I found you. (I found you.)
Now gray skies have turned deep blue. (I love you.)
All my hopes and daydreams have come true. (They have come true.)
I thank the Lord. (I thank the Lord.)
For all that he has put me through. (The winding road led straight to you.)
I can do "For better or worse" now that I found you.

(Bridge)
I can do "For better or worse" now that I found you.

Everyone
(Chorus)
It’s nice to be together again.
It’s nice to see two broken hearts mend.
We had too much to leave behind to let our romance end.
It’s nice to be together again.


Man
(Verse 1)
How could I have been so blind?
How could I have missed the signs?
How did I let you slip away from me?
How could it have been so hard to see?


Woman
(Verse 2)
Small things got in front of me.
I lost sight and could not see.
Searching desperately for what was in my hand.
Too blind to see you’re my favorite fan.

We had too much to leave behind to let our romance end.
It’s nice to be together again.

Life alone was misery.
I could never love again if we should part.
How could I live with a broken heart.


Man
(Verse 4)
You are everything to me.
You make me what I can be.
Living without you has made me realize.
My blue skies begin within your eyes.


Everyone
(Chorus)
It’s nice to be together again.
It’s nice to see two broken hearts mend.
We had too much to leave behind to let our romance end.
It’s nice to be together again.

(Tag)
It’s nice to be together again.
It’s nice to be together again.
