Tired of Waiting For You  I was born by the river Lonely long winds of dead Silent storm still haunts Walks alone in my stead  But i can see it you know what I'm feeling Feeling so blue You can love me or you can leave me All alone Tired of waiting for you x2  Had i seen the moment You looked the other way How i wish time could've stopped then Instead of being stuck here today

Tired of Waiting For You

I was born by the river
Lonely long winds of dead
Silent storm still haunts
Walks alone in my stead

But i can see it you know what I'm feeling
Feeling so blue
You can love me or you can leave me
All alone
Tired of waiting for you x2

Had i seen the moment
You looked the other way
How i wish time could've stopped then
Instead of being stuck here today

Verse 1 There’s something ‘bout the world we live in A small house, four walls with cheap skin Even though it looks murky on the outside We share laughter and love on the inside Got no money, no time to buy things But don’t you worry honey, no need to pull strings We may be nothing like the family down the street But our hearts, together they beat  Pre-Hook Take my hand Dance with me forever Sing along, can’t you hear that happy tune?

Verse 1
There’s something ‘bout the world we live in
A small house, four walls with cheap skin
Even though it looks murky on the outside
We share laughter and love on the inside
Got no money, no time to buy things
But don’t you worry honey, no need to pull strings
We may be nothing like the family down the street
But our hearts, together they beat

Pre-Hook
Take my hand
Dance with me forever
Sing along, can’t you hear that happy tune?
These are moments that are golden
We don’t need diamonds to keep us going

Hook
You make my dreams come true-u u
A paradise for two
Good times baby, let the good times roll
These good times in our lives
You treat me like a quee-ee-een
In my heart, baby you're the king
Good times baby, let the good times roll
These good times in our lives

Verse 2
A tight budget is how we’re living
That can’t measure up to what you’re giving
Hold me in your arms until dawn
Want you right here, even when the money’s gone

Pre-Hook

Would go never away
But it gets better every day

It won't add up--wouldn't fill a cup
But give it one more try
This crazy life
Sure can surprise
Just when you think you're at the end
A new world begins

CHORUS
I never thought that there was any way
I'd hear myself say
It gets better every day, better every day
I lived my life thinking hard times

Don't let them tell you to stop
Your soul flows like a volcano
Burning right way into this world

And it gets better every day

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,  It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.  Long lay the world in sin and error pining.  Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.  A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,  For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.  Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!  O night divine, the night when Christ was born;  O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!  O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!   Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,  With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.  O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,  Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.  The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;  In all our trials born to be our friends.  He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,  Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!  Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!   Truly He taught us to love one another,  His law is love and His gospel is peace.  Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.  And in his name all oppression shall cease.  Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,  With all our hearts we praise His holy name.  Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,  His power and glory ever more proclaim!  His power and glory ever more proclaim!

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining, 
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth. 
Long lay the world in sin and error pining. 
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth. 
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, 
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. 
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! 
O night divine, the night when Christ was born; 
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine! 
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine! 

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, 
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand. 
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming, 
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land. 
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger; 
In all our trials born to be our friends. 
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger, 
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend! 
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend! 

Truly He taught us to love one another, 
His law is love and His gospel is peace. 
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother. 
And in his name all oppression shall cease. 
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, 
With all our hearts we praise His holy name. 
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we, 
His power and glory ever more proclaim! 
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
