    WAY BACK WHEN

     

     

    Way Back When  © Alicia Mills, Marla Cantor & Mitch Cantor

     

    Sometimes we are reckless

    Sometimes I don’t know why

    Superficial intentions

    Self absorbed and we lie

        Take me back to a time

        Of innocence close my eyes

        I count to ten

     

            Take me where the flowers grow

            Take me down the yellow brick road

            Find my wonder, once again

            Like “Way Back When”

     

    Sometimes we have secrets

    Sometimes I think I’m fine

    Insatiable this hunger

    I get lost in my mind

        We lose control, don’t know, somehow

        Took a breath and let it out

        And I count to ten

     

            Take me where the flowers grow

            Take me down the yellow brick road

            Find my wonder, once again

            Like “Way Back When”       

     

                Black is night    

                No stars around

                These mixed up dreams

                They're chasing me

                I need sweet release

     

            Take me where the flowers grow

            Take me down the yellow brick road

            Find my wonder, once again

            Like “Way Back When”

            Take me where it all began

            Life was simple, life was grand

            Wave a magic wand and send

            Me “Way Back When”       

     

                A brand new day, green lights ahead

                Look for you, you squeeze my hand

                I count to ten

    It’s a day to remember

    It’s a time to believe

                We found a place

                That “Can’t Erase Our Dreams”

                                      A place that makes you feel so blessed

                                      A place to build a place to grow

                                      A place we’d love everyone to know

     

    We will stay here forever

    A paradise achieved

                We found a place

                That “Can’t Erase Our Dreams”

    KEEP ON TRYIN'

     

            Keep On Tryin'  © Marla and Mitch Cantor

      

    It’s not always what it seems

    Standing still or swimming upstream

    “Keep On Tryin'”                                                              

     

    Another day another mood

    Bounce around different rooms

    “Keep On Tryin'”

     

        Go capture the world for all to see

        Beauty and love run so deep

        Inspiring you, to find your way through

     

                “Keep On Tryin'”

                It’s not as hard as it seems

                “Keep On Tryin'”

                And you’ll find all your dreams

                

    In life and in love

    A perfect fit for everyone

    “Keep On Tryin'”

     

    Like a sky magnificent

    Colors blend making sense

    “Keep On Tryin'”

     

        Before the dawn it’s always so dark

        And the last mile to run is so hard

        It’s moments like those, our best is exposed

     

                “Keep On Tryin'”

                It’s not as hard as it seems

                “Keep On Tryin'”

                And you’ll find all your dreams

                 

                            And when you least expect

                            You’ll surprise even yourself

     

    Hearts hear the loneliness

    Of a soul who tries their best

    “Keep On Tryin'”

     

        Go capture the world for all to see

        Beauty and love run so deep

        Inspiring you, to find your way through

     

                “Keep On Tryin'”

                It’s not as hard as it seems

                “Keep On Tryin'”

                And you’ll find all your dreams

                “Keep On Tryin'”

     

     Alternate third verse:

       Circles turn into squares

       When we’re willing, willing to dare

    A SONG JUST COMES TO LIFE

     

    “A Song Just Comes To Life”  © Marla Cantor & Mitch Cantor

     

    Woke up today with this melody playing in my mind

    Had to write down these words spinning round inside

    Sensations spilling out of me

    To be captured then set free

    And all at once “A Song Just Comes To Life”

     

          And we sing about the good times

          And the bad times we’ve been through

          And it brings out emotions

          Deep inside we never knew

     

    The look in your eyes can not disguise your feelings

    And the love in your heart creates the spark revealing

    Our earthly bond connecting souls

    From memories our stories told

    And all at once “A Song Just Comes to Life”

     

          So let’s sing about the good times

          And the bad times we’ve been through

          As it brings out emotions

          Deep inside we never knew

     

    So here is my song please sing along if you can

    ‘Cause I wrote it for you, you inspired me to nothing planned

    Thank you for the strength you leave

    The moods you give, the life we lead

    And all at once “A Song Just Comes to Life”

     

          And let’s sing about the good times

          And the bad times we’ve been through

          As it brings out emotions

          Deep inside we never knew

     

    And all at once “A Song Just Comes To Life“

    WITH A CONFIDENT ROAR

     

            With A Confident Roar  © Marla and Mitch Cantor             

     

    There’s a little in you, and a little in me

    And a little in everyone just trying to break free

    Trying so hard, trying so deep

    Try all the time awake and asleep

                Let it build inside

                Raise your confidence high

                Don’t be shy

                            And you will open the door

                            “With A Confident Roar”

                            And will soar, so high

     

    You have it in you, and I have it in me

    Open wide let it shine brightly

    Be proud of yourself, show the world who you are

    To me you’re a superstar

                When you realize

                The beauty inside

                You will rise

                            And you will open the door

                            “With A Confident Roar”

                            And will soar, so high

     

                                        And fly like you’ve never flown before

     

                Strap on your wings

                Be all you can bring 

                Take a full swing

                            And you will open the door

                            “With A Confident Roar”

                            And will soar, so high

    SEASONS OF MY HEART

     

            Seasons of My Heart  © Marla & Mitch Cantor

     

    Left alone on a bitter cold day

    The sky is a hazy gray

    Numbness overtakes my bones

    Feeling abandoned beneath the snow

    It’s so cold

     

         Tears fall with the rain

         Melting sadness and pain away

         New seeds begin to flirt

         But I’m paralyzed, so afraid

         To get hurt  

     

               “Seasons of My Heart”

               Emotion exploding

               Love unfolding

               Always turning me

               Inside out

               These “Seasons of my Heart”                                                 

     

    Passion arrives on a bright colored day 

    Kissing all the grayness away              

    Golden sunshine makes me feel whole   

    Burning rays blanket

    My soul

     

         Now crimson colors

         Are falling to the ground

         Hinting of the fading light

         Please love, hold on

         To me tight

     

               “Seasons of My Heart”

               Emotion exploding

               Love unfolding

               Always turning me

               Inside out

               These “Seasons of my Heart”      

     

    Sometimes love is blind

    Months redefine

    Feelings intertwined

    Don't want to spring ahead

    Don't want to fall back

    Want love to stay on track

     

                         "Seasons of My Heart"

                          Emotion Exploding

                          Love unfolding

                          Always turning me

                          Inside out

                          These "Seasons of My Heart"

    KEEP THE FAITH

     

    KEEP THE FAITH  (c) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    You're looking at life and its all tumbling down

    and it feels like you might really hit the ground

    You wanna rise up high but you keep sinking low

    But sometimes you know that's just the way that it goes

                You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                 "Keep the Faith"

                 You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                 "Keep the Faith"

     

    It hasn't felt right now for quite a while

    and now you're wondering if life is really worthwhile

    You keep trying hard you're not getting anywhere

    but sometimes you gotta just say a little prayer

                You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                 "Keep the Faith"

                  You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                  "Keep the Faith"

     

                              In you and me

                              In love and family

                              In what you cannot see

                              Believe in its reality

                 You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                  "Keep the Faith"

                  You gotta "Keep the Faith"

    Two steps forward, one step back

    YOU JUST NEVER KNOW  (c) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    In our world people come and go

    “You Just Never Know”, “You Just Never Know”

    If it’s for a reason or a season

    “You Just Never Know, “You Just Never Know”

             So in our world

            You’d better hold on to every moment

            ‘Cause you just don’t know what tomorrow holds

            “You Just Never Know”, “You Just Never Know”

            “You Just Never Know”, “You Just Never Know”

     

    In our world everyday is borrowed

    ‘Cause “You Just Never Know”, “You Just Never Know”

    If the day will bring you peace or sorrow

    “You Just Never Know, “You Just Never Know”

             So in our world

            You’d better hold on to every moment

            ‘Cause you just don’t know what tomorrow holds

            You just don’t know, You just don’t know, 

            “You Just Never Know”, “You Just Never Know”

            “You Just Never Know”, “You Just Never Know”

     

                    So stand up and feel your feet planted

                    In the now, don’t take it for granted

                    Tic tock, so bring on the laughter

          

            ‘Cause in our world

            You’d better hold on to every moment

            ‘Cause you just don’t know what tomorrow holds

    one can never go backwards

    cause yesterday is gone

    Give up old perceptions

    Create a different view

    let go of that which does not work

            gotta just keep on trying to

            “Move with Time”

    Don’t jump too far ahead

    WHO YOU CAN BECOME

     

    WHO YOU CAN BECOME  © Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    Who said life's easy, life isn't easy

    We work to find, our daily grind

    We like familiar ways, to fill our everydays

    Hold on tight, to what seems right, in our mind, can't leave behind, the things that now make us blind

                Give up who you are for "Who You Can Become"

                Growing is knowing that changes are to come

                Innovate yourself into something else

                And give up who you are for "Who You Can Become"

     

    We go through stages, that bring on changes

    Things that worked, now don't work

    Release the old ways, embrace a new day

    You can be, off key, redefine, who you are, you'll see it's not far

                Give up who you are for "Who You Can Become"

                Growing is knowing that changes are to come

                Innovate yourself into something else

                And give up who you are for "Who You Can Become"

     

                            The hardest part, is just to start, believing in yourself

     

    Let the new you emerge, brighter and happier

    With hopeful eyes, you say goodbye

    Knowing that change is good, now that you know you could

    Create in you, a different view, change your mind, you will find, life is not a straight line

                Give up who you are for "Who You Can Become"

                Growing is knowing that changes are to come

                Innovate yourself into something else

                And give up who you are for "Who You Can Become"

    In moments like these it’s hard to believe   

    We’re alone, all alone

    There is life, other life

              Open wide, your mind                                

              Look inside, you’ll find                                                     

              Many things you never believed you had

    When you think you’re alone, no one else home

    Just your thoughts, deepest thoughts

    Be true to yourself, no one else

    Don’t judge what you see, if it’s you let it be

    In a Universe so vast, with all the knowledge amassed

              Just open wide, your mind

              Look inside, you’ll find

              Many things you never believed you had

              “Seek and you shall find”

     

    That deep in your mind there’s a special glow                                              

    Unlock the joys you would never know

              Open wide, your mind

              Look inside, you’ll find

              Open wide, your mind

              Look inside, you’ll find

              Many things you never believed you had

              “Seek and you shall find”

     

    That deep in your mind there’s a special glow

    Unlock the joys you would never know

              Open wide, your mind

              Look inside, you’ll find

              Open wide, your mind

              Look inside, you’ll find

              Many things you never believed you had

             “Seek and you shall find”

    HOT SUMMER DAY

     

    Hot Summer Day © Marla and Mitch Cantor

     

    The clouds are rolling by and they’re seemingly alive

    As I watch, watch them rise

    Floating through the sky, changing their disguise

    Right before my eyes

    The sand is really smooth, it lets me find my groove

    I don’t have to move

    Feeling almost bare, without a single care

    I’m just breathing in the air

     

    On this “Hot Summer Day”

    Where I want to stay all day on this

    “Hot Summer Day” all day on this

    “Hot Summer Day”

     

    The waves are gently singing and whosever listening

    Hears the joy, joy that they bring

    The swaying from the start brings a peace into my heart

    Makes me glad to be alive

    The breeze is feeling cool as it pushes me right through

    To my thoughts, thoughts of you

    Sweeps me off my feet, what a never ending treat

    My life feels complete

          

    On this “Hot Summer Day”

    Where I wanna stay all day on this

    “Hot Summer Day” all day on this

    “Hot Summer Day”

    “Hot Summer Day”

     

    The sun is shining bright, its soothing heat just right

    Such a wonderful delight

    My heart is feeling free and my mind it can now see

    That it’s just fine, fine to be

     

    On this “Hot Summer Day”

    Where I wanna stay all day on this

    “Hot Summer Day” all day on this

    “Hot Summer Day”

    “Hot Summer Day”

    “Hot Summer Day”

    Hot Summer Day

    KEEP THE FAITH - GOSPEL VOCAL

     

    KEEP THE FAITH  (c) Marla Cantor and Mitch Cantor

     

    You're looking at life and its all tumbling down

    and it feels like you might really hit the ground

    You wanna rise up high but you keep sinking low

    But sometimes you know that's just the way that it goes

                You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                 "Keep the Faith"

                 You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                 "Keep the Faith"

     

    It hasn't felt right now for quite a while

    and now you're wondering if life is really worthwhile

    You keep trying hard you're not getting anywhere

    but sometimes you gotta just say a little prayer

                You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                 "Keep the Faith"

                  You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                  "Keep the Faith"

     

                              In you and me

                              In love and family

                              In what you cannot see

                              Believe in its reality

                 You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                  "Keep the Faith"

                  You gotta "Keep the Faith"

                  "Keep the Faith"
