TIMES OF YOUR LIFE
R. Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

Even while you sleep
she said I’ll never leave
Staring at you just watching
as you breathe

And then suddenly you disappeared
As you came back there’s joyous tears
Living the times of your life
So I sing, Na na na na na na na

Now let’s begin on your recovery
Don’t worry if it doesn’t come easy
If you stumble when you try
I will always be nearby
Start living the times of your life

I’d like to think that we’ll
always be friends
Believing in the good times up ahead
Cuz when your life’s been torn apart
A new day’s dawning in your heart
Never too late to start

Chorus If the journey’s a thousand miles
Go on forward with a smile
Keep living the times of your life

Be thankful for the life you live today
Let the Lord always guide your way
There’s so many things you wanna do
But you have to start anew
Living the times of your life

Repeat Chorus So I sing, Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na

Never too late to start
Na na na na na na na

FIND YOUR WAY
R.Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

I wonder what it’s like to get inside
your mind, and be silent
When able to receive a second chance
at life, it’s a blessing
And if the silence means
you’re peaceful in a dream
Taking shelter from the misery.

Looking into your eyes I try to
understand, what you’re saying
Moving fingertips they’re always
searching, for an answer.
Then suddenly awake
new memories to make
By your side as you begin to heal.

Let’s make a brand new start.
Where love can always find
A way inside the hearts of every man
And as each day goes by
we’ll do all we can
Together we can learn
and help you find your way

The days go passing by
there’s new hope in your eyes
and we’re smiling
Learning once again so many
simple things
We take for granted
Let’s start each day a new
we’ll be here to see you through
So grateful for your recovery

Let’s make a brand new start
We’ll do all we can
Together we can learn
and help you find your way
Yes together we can learn
as we help you find your way

THE PROMISE OF TOMORROW
R. Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

There you lie feeling low
but you can comprehend
At one time full of life
and now you need a friend
Life’s too short for one to grieve
Nothing’s hard if you believe

Chorus The promise of tomorrow
Beyond the dark and heavy clouds
The sun is high up in the sky
The promise of tomorrow
However short this life can be
The Lord has plans for you and me

Heavy rain sleet or snow
they’re all just passing through
Storms of life are what we face
But it’s rainbows we pursue
Life’s too short for one to leave
Nothing’s hard if you believe

Repeat Chorus

Open minds understand
In His Hands
The world never ends

Today I share this song
it’s my gift to you
Making each day special
turning gray skies blue
Life’s too short live and breathe
Nothing’s hard if you believe….

Repeat Chorus

ANGEL IN DISGUISE
R. Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

We hardly knew each other
but the time was right
And this was meant to be
Sharing stories about our loves and life
reliving our history
Time spent together
we became friends

A special memory about
your loving wife
When you first saw her that day
Strolling down the steps
as the lights came up
music began to play
You knew you found her
right there and then

There you saw an angel
Heavens light shown in her eyes
Falling in love forever
With your angel
in disguise

We’re making sure that your legacy
Is a living memory
Which flows eternally

You asked me if it’s possible to have more time
to spend with family
Filling up our lives every single day
to its capacity
Then you looked around
for the very last time

There you saw an angel
Heavens light shown in her eyes
Love lives on forever
With your angel

Now he’s become her angel
Watching over her
An angel
Forever by your side

LEAVING ALL MY BLUES BEHIND
R.Salaysay, P.Windrum, C. Camp

He told me this is the story
Of the fight for my life
They say I’m hanging by a thread
and I don’t even have a chance
A life changing situation
You tell me how can one prepare
But now it’s safe to say I’m ready
Leaving all my blues behind

Can’t understand how longs it’s been
I don’t even know for sure
Can hardly speak my body’s weak
Cannot tell exactly how I feel
But one thing I know is that
My faith will show the way
Even if I should drift away
I gonna be in my sanctuary
Leaving all my blues behind

It’s not too late to make amends
For things I never changed
Forgive me if I didn’t say I’m sorry
Leaving all my blues behind

And thankfully I am at peace
accepting what life brings
I know you’re standing next to me
To cheer me up
and give me hope inside
But one thing I know is that
I made it through the fight
And now a chance to make it right
I do not want to say goodbye
to you all
Thank you for your loving guide
Thank you for my peace of mind
To get another chance at life
I’m leaving all my blues behind

Blues….Blues….Blues….
I’m leaving all my blues behind
I got another chance at life
I’m leaving all my blues behind

MIRACLES
R. Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

Hoping for a miracle
For someone you really love the most
Keep in mind life keeps
circling on its own
Up and down the days keep moving on

If I tell you now please understand
Hear these explanations from my heart
To sacrifice is just a simple part of life
Necessary to sustain your love

Chorus I‘ll be here by your side
We’ll be praying tonight
My hand’s yours to hold
As the hardships unfold
Just remember
up on the promised land
Peace is always there

Every day is like an open book
An invitation for the hearts involved
Turn the pages
and you’ll find that it reveals
The possibilities if you believe

Repeat Chorus

Tonight as I ‘m driving home
I think about the day I’ve been through
Another person I’ve never met before
Who was hoping for a miracle

We give our all,
but it’s not really our call
His hands may heal or
greet another soul

Another person another soul
His healing hands have touched another soul

SURVIVOR
R. Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

You couldn’t have imagined
that you’d be here today
But then life takes a sharp turn
with us awhile you’ll stay

Hey Survivor Go right on

Your loved ones prayers
and the love they bring
surround you as you heal
Each day you’re getting stronger
but not sure how you feel

Things happen in our lives
we can’t foresee
Just embrace the change
and be set free free

Adjusting to your new life
only you see wounds and scars
Your family and friends
still see a shining star

Hey survivor go right on pass it on

Things happen in our lives
we can’t foresee
Just embrace the change
and be set free free

Hearing your story
teaches us all to care
Help one another
understand the love God shares
Every time you hear this song
remember all you’ve learned
And make each day a blessing
share your love with all concerned

Hey survivor Go right on

RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE
R. Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

Recollecting memories of your life
As you drift off to sleep
He’s holding photos of your past
Full of memories, that he’ll keep
Right by your side

So many stories are being shared
as your family tree is traced
Though you managed just a smile
your eyes were filled with grace
Right by your side

Chorus When there’s no blue skies in sight
You always find a ray of light
How you shine every time
No wonder he‘s always seem
A smiling beauty queen

With all the years that have flown by
You’ve never changed
you’re still the same
Sitting at your baby grand
music is your middle name
Right by your side

Repeat Chorus

The kindness shown
throughout the years
Is a blessing to your family
Giving hope and sharing dreams
Is your loving legacy
Right by your side
Right by your side

HE SEES HER SMILE
R.Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

As he watched her slip away
he took her hand to pray
Asking God for His loving grace
strength to accept what they must face
He can’t believe he’s lost his mate
She’s at heavens’ gate
The end of joyful years gone by
he understands, but wonders why

With love in his heart
they’re never apart
Across all the miles
He sees her smile

They loved to talk they loved to dance
it began their romance
Remembering the day they wed
and tucking children into bed
The memories he keeps alive
Fills emptiness inside
The children’s gift of love they share
makes him feel as if she’s there

With joy in his heart,
they’re never apart
Across all the miles
He sees her smile

Sometimes we feel
that life’s unkind
Looking for answers we can’t find
There is one thing I know for sure
Love will endure

Painful memories begin to fade
New plans being made
Knowing he can’t touch her face
but in his mind they still embrace
With the help of family and friends
he now begins to mend
The love they shared is here to stay
They’ll reunite again some day

With peace in his heart,
they’re never apart
Across all the miles
He sees her smile
Smile

YOU CAN MAKE IT BACK
R. Salaysay, P. Windrum, C. Camp

Just when life’s going fine
Uncertainty and troubles come
No telling what will happen
Tomorrow’s promised, to no one
But when you are fearless
And your heart is brave
You can always get back up
And ride the wave

Cuz life can be just like the ocean
Stormy seas toss you around
Ride a wave back to the shore
You’ve been there before
you can make it back

His little girl fights for her life
She had come so far so young
Savings other from deep waters
Now a hero for her must come
Surrounded by the ones you love
Helping you find your way
Remembering things
you’ve done before
Starting over today

Cuz life can be just like the ocean
Stormy seas can drag you down
Ride a wave back to the shore
You’ve been there before
And you can make it back

Your dreams must never die
They keep your hope alive
Well believe that your time will come
to survive to survive

Cuz life can be just like the ocean
Up and down, with the tides
Catch a wave and lean in to it
Once you commit
You can make it back
You can make it back
You can make it back
