These are song starts that are on the back burner for now, perhaps to be revisited in the future with a major rewrite... any thoughts on these are always appreciated...

    BREAKAWAY

                       

                        BREAKAWAY  © Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    Let the wind blow through your hair

    Let it chase away your cares

    Cause there's no time like right now

    To begin and to allow

    New insight, new ideas

    To flood all your fears

    They can't hurt you anymore

    You're free now like never before

           You can be who you want to be

           and you can say what you want

           You can see it a brand new way

           "Breakaway", "Breakaway"

     

    What was once old is now new

    You just stepped into brand new shoes

    You have a new walk and a new talk

    If they don't like it, it's not your fault

    Everyone has the right to choose

    What they hold onto and what they lose

    No one can tell you what to do

    Its all up, it's all up to you

           You can be who you want to be

           and you can say what you want

           You can see it a brand new way

           "Breakaway", "Breakaway"

     

                  It only takes a moment to turn it all around

                  It only takes a moment to turn it upside down

     

           You can be who you want to be

           and you can say what you want

           You can see it a brand new way

           "Breakaway", "Breakaway"

    BUTTERFLIES AND RAINBOWS

                       

                        BUTTERFLIES AND RAINBOWS  (c) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    Walking down this highway

    Always in a rush

    No time to slow down the pace

    Gotta stay in the race

              But where does your heart go

              When you let go

              What does your mind see

              When you are free

                        "Butterflies and Rainbows"

                        Floating in the sea

                        Simple Silence and Beautiful dreams

                        That's what I see

                                  That's where my heart goes

                                  When I let go

                                  That's what my mind sees

                                  When I am free

     

    Heartbreak and bitter mistakes

    Dreams left undreamt

    Days spent in survival mode

    Everything's unkept

              But where does your heart go

              When you let go

              What does your heart see

              When you are free

                        "Butterflies and Rainbows"

                        Floating in the Sea

                        Simple Silence and Beautiful dreams

                        That's what I see

                                  That's where my heart goes

                                  When I let go

                                  That's what my mind sees

                                  When I am free

     

                        "Butteflies and Rainbows"

                         Floating in the sea

                         Simple Silence and Beautiful dreams

                         That's what I see

                                   And that's where my heart goes

                                   When I let go

                                   Ihat's what my mind see's

                                   When I am free

    EAGLES MATE FOR LIFE

                        

                        EAGLES MATE FOR LIFE © Marla and Mitch Cantor                              

     

    Perched high on an oak

    Two Eagles awoke

    And set off to find

    What the day has designed

     

    They soar with such grace

    In their endless space

    And circle together

    Always together

     

                ‘Cause you see

                “Eagles Mate for Life”

                 So beautifully

                “Eagles Mate for Life”

     

    In a nest of creation

    She lays their relations

    Guarding till birth

    When they hatch for their search

      

    In wintry weather                                                                                                                        

    They cuddle together

    Warming each other

    Always each other

     

                ‘Cause you see                                                                                           

                “Eagles mate for life”

                 So beautifully

                “Eagles mate for life”      

     

    In their moments of greatest bliss

    Their beaks simulate a kiss

    As they reassure each other

    Always each other

     

                ‘Cause you see

                “Eagles mate for life”

                 So Beautifully

                “Eagles mate for life”

                     Like you and me

                    “Eagles mate for life”

                     You and me

                     We are two Eagles in flight                     

                         They mate for life

                         “Eagles mate for life”

    I saw you this morning

    With a smile on your face

    I WOKE UP (ORIGINAL VERSION)

                       

                         I WOKE UP  (c) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    “I Woke Up”

    From my sleep

    Seemed so long

    Felt so deep

                “I Woke Up” with you by my side

                “I Woke Up”

     

    “I Woke Up”

    Got out of bed

    Stretched my arms

    Cleared my head

                “I Woke Up” with you by my side

                “I Woke Up

     

    I felt your breathe upon my neck

    Your body touching mine

    Sent a shiver down my spine

    Now you know that’s a good sign

    “I Woke Up”

    “I Woke Up”

                    IN THE LIGHT  © Marla Cantor & Mitch Cantor

     

    We’ve been through hard times, we’ve been partners in crime

    Letting you and me get to a place we can not see

    Seemed like we wouldn’t make it through, couldn’t overcome all this blue

    But now it’s getting lighter, the sky is looking brighter

                Do you see the light         

                Shining down on us bright

                Stay with me “In The Light”

                Stay with me “In The Light”

     

    So let’s not run away, fight with me for another day

    ‘Cause I could see it crystal clear, I always want you near

    We will overcome all the thorns, undo all the wrongs

    We will start anew, yeah just me and you

                Do you see the light                     

                Shining down on us bright

                Stay with me “In The Light”

                Stay with me “In The Light”

     

    It’s where we’ll find our hope, it’s where we’ll find our faith

    It’s where we’ll find our love, it’s where we’ll find our strength

    It’s where we’ll find our dreams, it’s where we’ll find our heart

    It’s where we’ll find our way to make a new start

                Do you see the light         

                Shining down on us bright

    Rainbows appear through the light of the rain

    Can you show me now

    WHITEWATER RAFTING

                       

                        WHITEWATER RAFTING  (c) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    “Whitewater Rafting”

    Down this river we call life

    Sometimes it feels quite nice

    As the river delivers

    And we move into a groove

    On the hush of the rush

     

    “Whitewater Rafting”

    Down this river we call life

    Sometimes it feels quite nice

    But sometimes it feels like

    The raft will take on water and we’ll sink

    In the crush of the rush 

                Enjoy the ride

                You gotta go low to climb up high

                Laugh or cry

                You gotta get wet to survive

     

    “Whitewater Rafting”

    Down this river we call life

    Sometimes it feels quite nice

    As the river delivers

    And we slide into a glide

    In the gush of the rush

     

    “Whitewater Rafting”

    Down this river we call life

    Sometimes it feels quite nice

    But sometimes the crazy pace

    Makes the water splash our face

    In the slush of the rush 

                 Enjoy the ride

                 You gotta go low to climb up high

                 Laugh or cry

                 You gotta get wet to survive

     

                             Black or white

                             Go left or go right

                             Open or close

                             A thorn or a rose

                             Hot or cold

                             Young or old

                             Go up or go down

                             Silence or sound

                  Enjoy the ride

                 You gotta go low to climb up high

                 Laugh or cry

                 You gotta get wet to survive

    REALLY YOU (hd)

            Really You  © Marla and Mitch Cantor

     

    Take a plane

    Or a train

    And come get here

    Just the same

     

    It’s the start

    Open your heart

    Let the love in

    And come take part

     

                Whatever you do

                Make sure it’s you

                “Really You”

     

    Take some time

    To unwind

    And listen

    To this rhyme

     

    And melody

    That magically

    Turns into music

    Brain candy

     

                Whatever you do

                Make sure it’s you

                “Really You”

     

                            It’s time to go away

                            And open up a brand new day

                            That’s “Really You”

     

    Take a knife

    Open your life

    Let the world see

    All the spice

     

    You have inside

    Now just apply

    Yourself completely

    Don’t be denied

     

                Whatever you do

                Make sure it’s you

    AGAIN

     

                        AGAIN  (c) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    I can’t believe that I’m here "Again"

    I climbed to the top

    Yet I fall here "Again"

    And now this mountain

    Stands tall before me

    "Again"

     

    I never saw this coming

    I didn’t think I was going

    To be asked "Again"

    To climb up this mountain

     

                "Again" and "Again" and "Again" and "Again"

                One more time again

     

    My body aches and my mind is drained

    Life should be easier not so full of pain

    I don’t know how to find

    The strength to climb up more time

     

                 "Again" and "Again" and "Again" and "Again"

                  One more time "Again" 

     

    Grant me the strength I need

    To stand up and face what I see

    To find the strength within

    To begin to climb

     

                        "Again" and "Again" and "Again" and "Again"

                          One more time "Again"

    CHANGE FOR THE BETTER

                       

                        CHANGE FOR THE BETTER  (c) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    We change ourselves each and every moment

    Life is itself about letting us grow

    Everyone moves to a new groove

    Let’s take a trip to far and distant places

    Leaving behind all familiar faces

    Look for new things that we can bring

                Home, start anew, me and you

                Redesign ourselves into something else

                            It’s a “Change for the Better

                            “Change for the Better”

                            Things “Change for the Better”

                            Let’s go

     

    So many sights to see on our travels

    All of our dreams ready to unravel

    How do we choose what we should lose

    Trying new things on for comfort

    If they don’t fit then just dump ‘em

    Look for new things that we can bring

                Home, start anew, me and you

                Redesign ourselves into something else

                           It’s a “Change for the Better”

                           “Change for the Better”

    A PERFECT DAY

                       

                        A PERFECT DAY  © Marla and Mitch Cantor

     

    Early Sunday morning                                                

    We took a long drive to the Long Island countryside

    As we walked down an endless lane it started to rain          

                What an end to “A Perfect Day”                               

                Whatever could go wrong found our way                 

                In bed we should have stayed                        

                What an end to “A Perfect Day”                               

     

    We drove back to the city

    To see a Broadway show been waiting weeks to go

    There was so much traffic we arrived as the final curtain dived

                What an end to “A Perfect Day”

                Whatever could go wrong found our way

                In bed we should have stayed

                What an end to “A Perfect Day”

     

                            When we got home we poured some wine                           

                            Turned the lights down low, you looked so fine        

                            It took a little while to unwind

                            Then we kissed until three and made it “A Perfect Day”     

                What an end to “A Perfect Day”

                Whatever could go wrong found our way

                In bed we stayed

                To make it “A Perfect Day”

     

                            When we got home we poured some wine                           

                            Turned the lights down low, you looked so fine

    I WOULDN'T BET YA

     

                    I WOULDN’T BET YA  © Marla and Mitch Cantor

     

    Ever since we met we enjoyed the dance club scene

    A drink and a toast and we’d start our routine

    I’d go left she’d go right walking through the haze

    People’s eyes look up and down at everyone they gaze

     

    When the band would start our feet would feel

    When the lights would dim our hearts found zeal

    Then the floor would shake like a spinning wheel

    When the room gets tight shows your sex appeal

               

              My wife likes to flirt at bars

              She likes to flirt at bars

              I don’t think she goes too far

              But “I Wouldn't Bet Ya”, oh no

     

    ‘Cause it makes her feel younger for the boys to look

    And it makes her feel pretty when they take out their phone book

    It makes her feel confident when she can say no

    Still she teases them a little bit I know

     

              My wife likes to flirt at bars

              She likes to flirt at bars

              I don’t think she goes too far

              But “I Wouldn't Bet Ya”, oh no

     

    I’m just as guilty when we play this little game

    'Cause I know whose going home with my flame

    There is only one possibility

    That pretty lady, she’s coming home with me

     

              My wife likes to flirt at bars

              She likes to flirt at bars

              I don’t think she goes too far

              But “I Wouldn't Bet Ya”, oh no

     

                  Far as the eye can see

                 ‘Cause that pretty lady’s coming home with me

                 The sky’s the limit

                 ‘Cause she’s coming home with me

    When the wind blows, takes you with it

    Far away places, you've never been before

                Open the door

                Explore

                "That's What Life's For"

     

    When the clouds break, showing sunshine

    Bringing warmth, you never felt before

                Open the door

                Explore

                "That's What Life's For"

     

    When the sun sets, brings on darkness

    Imagination, you never had before

                Open the door

    A MOMENT I DREAM OF

     

                        A MOMENT I DREAM OF © Marla and Mitch Cantor

     

    The sun opens shades in my mind

    And I see you so full of life

    I want to awaken to catch you

    Hold you in my arms

     

                “A Moment I Dream Of”

                 I dream of you

                “A Moment I Dream Of”

                 Dreams do come true

     

    The afternoon grind stiffens my body

    The thought of you pushes me through

    I want to share my life with you

    And hold you in my arms

     

                “A Moment I Dream Of”

                 I dream of you

                “A Moment I Dream Of”

                 Dreams do come true

     

    The evening arrives

    So soothing

    Love so secure

    Losing my breath

    A moment away

     

                “A Moment I Dream Of”

                 I dream of you

                “A Moment I Dream Of”

                 Dreams do come true

     

    Ready to turn to sleeping

    A pillow to rest my head

    When will I finally meet you

    And hold you in my arms

     

                “A Moment I Dream Of”

                 I dream of you

                “A Moment I Dream Of”

                 Dreams do come true

    IMPOSSIBLE

     

              Impossible (2)  © Mitch Cantor

     

    She is almost half my age                                                  

       Same age as my grown daughter                                         

       Have I had too much liquor                                        

    To see, how much younger she, is to me                   

     

    My bride passed year last

       I am just now able to see

       The many years in front of me

    It’s time, to find, don’t change my mind

     

                It seems “Impossible”                                                                              

                I am reaching for a place, that seems like a mistake            

                Is It "Impossible"

                My heart is pulling hard, for this love so avant-garde           

                Is it “Impossible”                                                                                       

                Really “Impossible”                                                                                   

                Is it “Impossible”                                                                                       

     

    We hide our emotions

       To all but a select few

       Who cares what the world thinks of you

    Every day, we pull away, from the underplay

     

                It seems “Impossible”

                I am reaching for a place, that seems like a mistake

                Is it “Impossible”

                My heart is pulling hard, for this love so avant-garde

                Is it “Impossible”

                Really “Impossible”

                Is it “Impossible”

     

                            When we are alone, she brings me home                                          

                            What she lacks in experience, she makes up in the depth             

                            Of her love for me, that’s easy to see                                                 

                            It’s only “Impossible” not to be with her, for me                             

     

                It may seem “Impossible”

                Like I am reaching for a place, that seems like a mistake

                Is it “Impossible”

                My heart is pulling hard, for this love so avant-garde

                Is it “Impossible”

                Really “Impossible”

                It’s very possible

    YOU'RE ALL I NEED (late nights and date nights)

     

    YOU'RE ALL I NEED (late nights and date nights)  (C) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    You're lookin' so good tonight

    Head to toe what a delight

    You look so sexy

    Will you let me

    Late nights and date nights are so dreamy

    Making up after a big fight uh huh

    or just cuddlin' in the morning when it's so cold outside

    Anyway is the right way

    "You're All I Need"

    Your love surrounds me

    Growing endlessly

    "You're All I Need"

     

    You move across the floor

    Like an angel who I adore

    Love to watch you go

    Makes me think of those

    Late nights and date nights so dreamy

    Making up after a big fight uh huh

    Or just cuddlin' in the morning when it so cold outside

    Any time is the right time

    "You're All I Need"

    Your love surrounds me

    Growing endlessly

    "You're All I Need"

     

    Late nights and date nights are so dreamy

    Making up after a big fight uh huh

    Or just cuddlin' in the morning when it's so cold outside

    Any day is the right day

    "You're All I Need""

    Your love surrounds me

    Growing endlessly

    "You're All I Need"

    MAYBE NEXT TIME

           

            Maybe Next Time  © Marla and Mitch Cantor

     

    You once told me I was the one

    And I told you without a doubt you were my salvation

    I loved you more than words can say

    I thought for always

    Now love has washed away

    But I have faith that one day

     

        Love will find a way to stay

        And Last a lifetime

        Love will find a way to stay

        And Last a lifetime

        Maybe Next Time

        Maybe Next Time

        Maybe Next Time

     

    You hurt me and I hurt you even though we didn’t mean to

    We tried so hard to talk it out and work it through

    But then it all just fell apart

    And left this broken heart

    Love has once again led me astray

    But I have faith that one day

     

        Love will find a way to stay

        And Last a lifetime

        Love will find a way to stay

        And Last a lifetime

        Maybe Next Time

        Maybe Next Time

        Maybe Next Time

     

            It’s better to have loved and lost

            Then never to have loved they say

            So I will keep an open heart

            Because I know one day

     

        Love will find a way to stay

        And Last a lifetime

        Love will find a way to stay

        And Last a lifetime

        Maybe Next Time

        Maybe Next Time

        Maybe Next time
