Track Name: I Will Always Be Here
I Will Always Be Here
Words & Music by Ric Gordon
Copyright 2016 Joric Music BMI
I.
When he loses interest
In what you hold dear
When he no longer listens
And no longer cares
When he lies to you
Leaves you in fear
You know where hope is
The path is clear
Follow your heart back
I will always be here

Chorus
I will always be here
When like gets rough
I will always be here
To help you up
I will always be here
No matter what
I will always be here
To give you love

II.
When he has grown cold
And you’re not what he wants
When you feel abandoned
See that he has turned off
Please just remember
All is not lost
You know where hope is
The path is clear
Follow your heart back
For I will always be here

Chorus

III.
Our lives are so fleeting
No tomorrows guaranteed
When the pain consumes you
And trauma steals your sleep
Love is the one thing
That will fill your need
You know where hope is
The path is clear
Follow your heart back
I will always be here
Track Name: When We Kiss
When We Kiss
Words and Music by Ric Gordon
Copyright 2017 Joric Music BMI
I.
Ravages of love leave you all undone
Broken and waiting for the end to come
An empty bed your only welcome home
Despair sleeps by you when you're all alone

Chorus
Time couldn’t take the pain away
Nothing was real until we met that day
I always hoped that it would feel like this
You moan so sweetly when we kiss

II.
So unexpected you swept into my life
Never imagined I would see the light
The walls of Jericho have crumbled down
They could not stand against your lovely sound

Chorus
Time couldn’t take the pain away
Nothing was real until we met that day
I always hoped that it would feel like this
You moan so sweetly when we kiss

III.
Now that my heart is resting on my sleeve
I can only hope that you might see
The path that leads you through the trees
Into the clearing where you will find me

Chorus
Time couldn’t take the pain away
Nothing was real until we met that day
I always hoped that it would feel like this
You moan so sweetly when we kiss
You moan so sweetly when we kiss
You moan so sweetly when we kiss
Track Name: To Hear You Say
To Hear You Say
Words and Music by Ric Gordon
Copyright 2017 Joric Music

I.
I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor
And everything in between
Life’s been so dark I nearly lost my mind
Through all that the thought of you
Has pushed me to go on
To hear you say I love you one more time

Chorus
To hear you say I love you one more time
To look into those eyes and know
That everything’s alright
To finally know there’s nothing left to find
To hear you say I love you one more time

II.
The streets reach up and slap my face
To wrench me from my peace
Just to prove the point that life’s unkind
As I wander aimlessly
It all comes back around
To hear you say I love you one more time

Chorus

III.
The years may pass, our eyes may fade
Your loss just grows with time
Companions all alone in bed and blind
Through it all the unending tome
The only peace I’ll ever know
Is to hear you say I love you one more time

Chorus
Track Name: Rise Above
Rise Above
Words & Music by Ric Gordon
Copyright 2017 Joric Music BMI

I
As the night began to fall
There wasn’t that much to say
The writing on the wall
Was left to fade away

II
No one had spoke the words
Yet there meaning was so clear
It’s not about the hurt
Only what we could not hear

Chorus
Didn’t matter all that much
The odds and ends of love
Grown cold to the touch
Lord let me rise above

III
Our debt is laid to rest
The ledger has been closed
Truth is we didn’t try our best
No one need ever know

Chorus

IV
No safe retreat in store
For those who wait for dawn
Not a care for who loved more
Because it’s all now gone

Chorus
Track Name: Standing Here
Standing Here
Words and Music by Ric Gordon
Copyright 2017 Joric Music BMI

I
Used to be so happy here
Always loved this time of year
When the time was right you’d know
Didn’t think you meant the time to go

Chorus
It’s all become so clear
Left alone standing here
Standing here

II
The feelings rainy mornings bring
When only you meant anything
So serene lying there
I was in love and unaware

Chorus

Bridge
The fault is all ours
Cracks left to spread too far
How to save it was so plain
But we didn’t say anything

III
Stayed behind to bear the cost
All made up to play the part
Stepping out on stage to be
Just the singular of we

Chorus
