I won't be buying flowers this Valentines They die too fast and I don't want that for us And I won't be buying chocolate, it's so cliche Everyone loves chocolate. They eat it every other day But I don't want you to doubt my love for you, Deep inside my heart I know that it's true On the day that everybody feels they have to say "I Love You" I feel I have to say "I love you more than that" I tried to find a card - It's oh so hard to find one Where the words say the exact way that I feel about you, deep inside But you know what they say - "It's the thought that counts..." On the day that everybody feels they have to say "I Love You" I feel I have to say "I love you more than that"

Wrote me a song for my Georgia, A little old song for my Georgia, Won't take that long for me to sing it, A little old song for my Georgia

I got your message and I couldn't believe it How somebody so beloved could lay me so low And I'm standing in the rain with my suitcase in my hand Full of all my broken dreams, and all your broken promises I've got to, got to move on I've got to, got to move on In the beginning you made the heavens and the earth sing for me Yeah, you let there be light and you brought me to life But you took that all away - now that you're gone Took my house and my car and friends and my self respect And all you left me with was this goddamn tattoo I've got to, got to move on I've got to, got to move on

I was walking through West Hollywood When a homeless man steps up to me He said "Brother, I got a message from Jesus, That you gots to know, if you wanna be free." I said "Solid, won't you lay it on me, 'Cause you know I'll take all the help I can get." Then he looked into my eyes, And it took me by surprise, That a man could be so wise Here's what he said (he said) Suffer the little children unto me, Suffer, let 'em come to me, Suffer the little children, 'Cause you gots to let them in, If you wanna be free I was walking through the desert And the lonely places, feeling afraid When a voice in the night, Like a beacon burning bright, Set my heart alight Here's what it said (it said) Suffer the little children unto me, Suffer, Let 'em come to me, Suffer the little children, 'Cause you got to let them in, If you wanna be free So if the message didn't get through yet I'm gonna share with you my epiphany You see we all are God's children And we've got to treat each other like a family With love and respect It's time to demonstrate that we all can elevate No more judgement, no more hate Set your heart to tolerate, you've got to Suffer the little children unto me, Suffer, Let 'em come to me, Suffer the little children, 'Cause you got to let them in, If you wanna be free

There's a big black cloud on my horizon It's getting so dark it's hard to see There's a storm in the wind And a long hard road ahead I know it's gonna take its toll on me But I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home I can hear the hounds out on the wastelands Baying for blood, are they coming for me? Now the rain's coming down like frozen bullets And the winds so cold, cuts me till I bleed But I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home Oh, I'm coming home The moon and her stars have passed beyond the veil Darkness fills the cold night sky There's a shadow on my trail and a long hard road ahead I know it's gonna take its toll on me But I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home I don't care, I don't mind, I don't care, I don't mind, I don't care, I don't mind, 'cause I'm coming home Oh, I'm coming home
