Out of the Blue

LYRICS FROM THE CD OUT OF THE BLUE

The Journey
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003 Heart Over the Bar publishing, (ASCAP)

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,
Sometimes you sing songs of joy,
and other times you sing the blues.
Through all the ups and downs, I’ve come to see,
I’m being guided by a force of mystery,
Traveling on, the journey

The soul is on a journey of a destiny unknown,
And it follows faithfully the path that is its own.
Two steps forward, one step back along the way (don’t sweat it)
Life is much sweeter when you take it day by day.
Traveling on the, journey

Bridge: I don’t know what road lies ahead
or where I’m bound (where I’m bound)
It’s only in reflection that I realize what I’ve found
Traveling on, the journey

Another road, another dream another day,
Another pilgrim trying to find its way
Traveling on, the journey

Don’t know where I’m going, but I’m gonna enjoy the ride
Wondering what its like on the other side
I heard the siren’s call but found another way
Through the odyssey of each new breaking day

The People Who Love You
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Just like the wind blows
Go where the heart knows
Where the road leads you
Where the road winds

Whatever you pursue
The people who love you
Know you can’t go forward
Without leaving some things behind

You’re on your way
Wherever you go
Hold onto the love you know
And you’ll never be too far from the people who love you

When hard times find you
Lord, they’ll blindside you
That’s when you need to
Remember who you are
There lies inside you
All that will guide you
So when you’re unsure
Follow your northern star

You’re on your way
Wherever you go
Carry with you the love that you know
And if the road don’t treat you kind
You always know where you can find
The people who love you
Always behind you all the way
Always behind you come what may

Love Came Home
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

I traveled through a dry and barren stretch of time
Where love I thirsted for I simply could not find
And then I saw your face
And you took me from that place

All in a moment, out of the blue
The love that I searched for
came breaking through
And you took me away from my world all alone
Love Came Home

In you and you alone I found a love so strong
When you hold me in your arms,
there is no doubt where I belong
I found my promised land
With my milk and honey man

All in a moment, out of the blue
The love that eluded me, I found it in you
And I am so glad just to call you my own
Love Came Home

Satisfied my longing
Filled me with a sense of belonging
No need to wander
no more will I roam
Ever since the day you brought your
sweet love home

All in a moment, out of the blue
The love that I’d waited for,
I found it in you
And I am so glad just to call you my own
Love Came Home

Everything I Need
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

I may only have a five in my pocket
But I feel content and I’m glad I got it…oooh
I got everything I need
Abundant treasures
I may not posses
Despite it all, I found happiness
I feel rich and that’s everything I need
My philosophy may appear a little strange
But I can’t measure the good I got
with dollars and small change
I got everything I need

Been on top of the world and I’ve been down and out
Took a few years
But I know what life’s about
I found love and it’s the real thing
It’s not the big bang on the 4th of July
It’s quiet and humbling, like a baby’s sigh
I know love and it ‘s everything I need
I got somebody loving me just as sure as he is able
I’ve got my friends and family sitting round my kitchen table
That’s everything I need

When my dreams and desires
Push me on to get more
I try to remember what I got I’m thankful for
I got everything I need
I got a song to sing…and I got a soaring spirit
I got a band to play my song and I got people to hear it
That’s everything I need.

I got the love of my friends and family
and the angels in heaven watching over me and that’s Everything
If I lost it all and I was on my own, I know my faith would lead me home, I got Everything
If happiness would be a crime, I would gladly serve my time, I got Everything

Guardian Angel
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003, Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

In this life when you lose your voice
Let mine be the voice of love
That sings to you the song of courage
To realize what you dream of

Let me be your guardian angel
Let me guide you on your path
Through the world of pain and promise
To a peace that surely lasts

From a distance I will watch you
And gladly keep you safe from harm
My wings will wrap around you gently
And you need never be alarmed

Let me be your guardian angel
Let me watch you safely pass
Through the world of pain and promise
To the peace that surely lasts

Let me hold the lamp to guide you
As you wander through the night
I’ll be the loving arms that reach out
When your eyes embrace the light

Let me be your guardian angel
I’ll illuminate the path
Through the world of pain and promise
To the peace that surely lasts

Leap of Faith
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

I’m on the verge of a new beginning
I see the change I got to make
I’m getting lots of signals
About the road that I must take
I’m getting stronger every day

With a leap of faith I’ll be on my way
I’ve played it safe for so long
Afraid to take a chance
I’m ready to go forward
Can’t leave my life to circumstance
I’m feeling stronger every day
with a leap of faith I’ll be on my way

It all comes down to action
It’s time to make a move
Pull myself together
Lock into a better groove

I don’t want to spend a moment
looking back with one regret
and I know the solution lies in making that first step

I’m reaching for the stars….
they don’t seem so far away
Take my hand and feel the dawn of a new day
I’m feeling stronger every day
And I see the light
And the time is right
with a leap of faith, I’m on my way

I Wish You Well
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003, Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

The summer breezes are a memory
The chill is in the air
The leaves are falling to the ground
It’s the end of our love affair
Although I love you so
I feel relief in letting go
I wish you well

In a world that’s ever changing
as the autumn breezes blow
Kiss me one more time
And then I’d better go
Though our romance is through
I’m better for knowing you
I wish you well

A love to last forever
Wasn’t our destiny
Nature serves to remind us
Change is one certainty…I wish you well

We make our our world
We make our own joy
We make our sorrow too
May you always find the rainbow
when the storms of life pass though
I hope that you are blessed
with joy and happiness
I wish you well

It’s Gonna Come Back to You
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003, Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Have you ever loved with all your heart
Then watched your romance fall apart?
Have you ever given and paid the cost?
All is not lost, All is not lost

The love you give away
Will come back to you one day
Just give time its due
It’s gonna come back to you

In nature everbody knows
What you reap is what you sow
So don’t go planting seeds of discontent
and wonder where your flowers went

Throughout the life you live
Every measure that you give
The good, the bad and the ugly too
It’s gonna come back to you
What goes around comes around, What goes around comes around
What goes around comes around, What goes around comes around

Throughout the life you live
Every measure that you give
You must believe its true
It’s gonna come back to you
What goes around comes around, What goes around comes around
What goes around comes around, What goes around comes around
Ahhh

Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep)
words & music Irving Berlin © 1952 Irving Berlin Music (ASCAP)

When I’m worried and I can’t sleep
I count my blessings instead of sheep
And I fall asleep counting my blessings

When my bankroll is getting small
I think of when I had none at all
And I fall asleep counting my blessings

I think about a nursery and I picture curly heads
And one by one I count them as they slumber in their beds

If you’re worried and you can’t sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you’ll fall asleep counting your blessings

A Brighter Day
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2003 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

I can see by your face that trouble’s got a hold on you
Looking back on my life, I’ve had my share of hard times too
Remember, what doesn’t do in you will make you stronger
Just hang on, there is always hope if you can’t take it any longer

When you walk through a storm
You can’t help but be transformed
Soon daylight will be breaking through the clouds of gray
You’re walking out of the rainstorm into a brighter day

Don’t look back…and don’t you dare look down
With your eyes fixed forward you will find your higher ground
Keep believing….there are sunny skies beyond this situation
Pay attention, when the clouds disperse you’ll see another transformation

When you walk through a storm
You can’t help but be transformed
Soon daylight will be breaking through the clouds of gray
You’re walking out of the rainstorm into a brighter day

Remember, what doesn’t do in you will make you stronger
Keep believing, there is always hope if you can’t take it any longer

In these days of cynicism listen to the words I sing
hang onto hope cause
hope is everything

What a Wonderful World
Words and Music George David Weiss and Bob Thiele

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom for me and for you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night and I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people goin’ by
I see friends shakin hands saying How do you do?
They’re really saying I love you

I hear babies cry
I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more
Than I’ll ever know
and I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world
