Mother

written by Donna Lewis

And I can hear you calling my name
Your healing hands smooth away the pain
And I can hear you whispering it'll be alright
You'll stay until the night
Breaks into day

You are my light in the dark
You stand beside me
You take my hand, show the way
You're here to guide me
You give me the strength that I need
You give me shelter
You gave me life, you give me love
You are my mother

And when you hear me calling your name
(I hear your voice)
You touch me with your chosen words
Everlasting faith, everlasting love
is the greatest gift you have
Believing, understanding me

You are my light in the dark
You stand beside me
You take my hand, show the way
You're here to guide me
You give me the strength that I need
You give me shelter
You gave me life, you give me love
You are my mother

Closer, closer, closer to heaven are you

You are my light in the dark
You stand beside me
You take my hand and show me the way
You're here to guide me
You give me the strength that I need
You give me shelter
You gave me life, you give me love...

Fool's Paradise
desert
written by Donna Lewis

Manipulated romance, pretty speeches in the dark
Banging on your big drum you captivate their hearts
But underneath the mask is a man of straw,
A master of excuses closing every door

I don't wanna hear your name
I don't wanna feel your pain
I don't have to play your game
I'm stronger, things have changed
I'm no longer in fools, fools paradise
I'm no longer in fools, fools paradise, fools paradise

Your poetic inspiration is a work of art
But your obsession with the glory rules a self-centered heart
Accumulative hatred, living in fear
And when the bitterness is over
Another victim reappears

I don't wanna hear your name
I don't wanna feel your pain
I don't have to play your game
I'm stronger, things have changed
I'm no longer in fools, fools paradise
I'm no longer in fools, fools paradise, fools paradise

I don't wanna hear your name
I don't wanna feel your pain
(I'm no longer in fools, fools paradise)
I don't wanna hear your name
I don't wanna feel your pain
(I'm no longer in fools, fools paradise)...
