LYRICS- WHAT IF ?

1) FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman

FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD
TO THE BOTTOM OF THE DEEP BLUE SEA

GRIN & BEAR IT LOST & FOUND
WEAR & TEAR FROM THE UPS & DOWNS
THESE ARE THE DAYS THAT MAKE YOU WONDER WHY
SAME CHANGES WITH A NEW SET OF WORDS
BUT ITS THE SAME SONG WEVE ALREADY HEARD
WE DID WHAT WE DID, AND NOW WE GOT A HOLE IN THE SKY

THINGS AINT WHAT THEY USED TO BE
CANT HIDE CANT YOU SEE
FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD TO THE BOTTOM OF THE DEEP BLUE SEA

YOU CAN BLAME IT ON THE NEIGHBORS
TRY AND FIX IT WITH SOME FAVORS
THINK YOU CAN DEAL WITH THINGS, THE WAY THEY USED TO BE DONE?
NO NO NO
WE TOOK ADVANTAGE EXAGGERATED
WE DIDNT LISTEN WE SHOULDA WAITED
COULD BE THE END OF A LONG EASY RIDE FOR SOME

THINGS AINT WHAT THEY USED TO BE
CANT HIDE CANT YOU SEE
FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD……. TO THE BOTTOM OF THE DEEP BLUE SEA

DOESNT MATTER THE LIFE YOU CHOOSE
NOBODY’S IMMUNE TO THE BLUES
DONT YOU KNOW YOU GOT TO WORK WITH WHAT YOU GOT
EVERY LITTLE THING MEANS A LOT
(SOLO)
THINGS AINT WHAT THEY USED TO BE
CANT HIDE CANT YOU SEE
FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD……. TO THE BOTTOM OF THE DEEP BLUE SEA

 

2. THE KEYS TO YOUR MIND
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman 
© 2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI

THE SUN SHINES DOWN ON EVERYONE
THE MOON TURNS EVERY TIDE
THE DAY’S DEMANDS ARE NEVER DONE
IT’S BIGGER THAN YOU OR I

ROUND AND ROUND THEY’LL BRING YOU DOWN
WITH AN EXCEPTION, OR TWO

ITS SO HARD WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
BUT YOU JUST CANT SEEM TO FIND
WHERE YOU LEFT THE KEYS TO YOUR MIND

THE THINGS YOU DO THAT SEE YOU THROUGH
THEY DONT SEEM TO WORK ANYMORE
(you’re) STUCK LIKE GLUE (but) ITS UP TO YOU
TO FIND YOUR WAY OUT THE DOOR

ONCE IN A WHILE YOU’LL SEE A SMILE
AND THEN YOU’LL KNOW JUST WHAT TO DO…

( but) ITS SO HARD WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
BUT YOU JUST CANT SEEM TO FIND
WHERE YOU LEFT THE KEYS TO YOUR MIND
ITS SO HARD WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
BUT YOU JUST CANT REMEMBER YOUR LINES
OR WHERE YOU LEFT THE KEYS TO YOUR MIND

NOW YOU’VE GOT THE THINGS THAT YOU ‘VE WANTED
BUT YOU’RE STILL NOT SATISFIED
WHATS IT GONNA TAKE TO FILL THE PLACE THATS EMPTY INSIDE?

 

3. REALLY WANT TO THANK YOU
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman

I REALLY WANT TO THANK YOU
FOR ALL THE INSPIRATION
ALL YOU SAID REMAINS TRUE
YET DEFIES AN EXPLANATION

YES I KNOW, ITS A NEW DAY
BUT THINGS STILL LOOK THE SAME
STILL SUSPECTING FOUL PLAY
BUT IM STILL IN THE GAME

THE MAGIC OF A SPANISH CASTLE
I’VE SEEN THE DREAM OF GOLDEN ROSE
AND LIKE EVERYDAY PEOPLE
AND THEM CHANGES, EVERYBODY KNOWS!

YES I KNOW, ITS A NEW DAY
BUT THINGS STILL LOOK THE SAME
STILL SUSPECTING FOUL PLAY
BUT IM STILL IN THE GAME

I REALLY WANT TO THANK YOU
ALL YOU SAID REMAINS TRUE

 

4. SHE TALKS TO ANIMALS
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman
©2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI

DONT TRY TO UNDERSTAND HER, OR HER WAYS
WALKING THRU THIS WORLD, THIS CROWDED HAZE
MIGHT SEEM TO HAVE HER MIND UP IN A CLOUD SOMETIMES
BUT I DONT MIND ITS A BETTER WORLD THAN MINE

CANT YOU SEE THE FIRE IN HER EYES?
LIGHTING UP THE WORLD WITH NO DISGUISE
A DISTANT TALENT LOST SO LONG AGO HAS FOUND
WHATS ALL AROUND JUST TUNE TO THE SOUND

MMMM MMMMM
SHE TALKS TO ANIMALS
MMMM MMMMM
SHE TALKS TO ANIMALS
MMMM MMMMM
SHE TALKS TO ANIMALS
AND THATS ALLRIGHT WITH ME

NEVER MET ANOTHER QUITE THE SAME
SOMETHING THERE INSIDE THATS NOT QUITE TAME
LOOKS INTO THEIR EYES AND SEES A SOUL INSIDE
THERES NO DENYIN’ A WORLD HERE THERE’S NO LYING

MMMM MMMMMM
SHE TALKS TO ANIMALS
MMMM MMMMM
SHE TALKS TO ANIMALS
MMMM MMMMM
SHE TALKS TO ANIMALS
AND THATS ALLRIGHT WITH ME
(PURR)

5. WHAT IF?
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman 
© 2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU A STORY
SAID EVERYTHING WAS ALL RIGHT
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU “I LOVE YOU”?
HOW WOULD IT CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

YOU KNOW WE’RE ALL THE SAME
(we see what we want to see)
GOT NO TIME FOR HURTIN GAMES
(cant just be what you want to be?)
EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE
(the way we’re designed)
DONT UNDERSTAND A NEED TO HIDE

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU A STORY
SAID EVERYTHING WAS ALL RIGHT
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU “I LOVE YOU”?
HOW WOULD IT CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

THE THINGS WE KNOW ARE REAL
(never get in the way)
LIKE THE LOVE WE NEED TO FEEL
(every day, every day)
YOU KNOW YOU ARE WHO YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE
(in your own mind)
A HOPELESS CASE OR A SHINING STAR

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU A STORY
SAID EVERYTHING WAS ALL RIGHT
WHAT IFI TOLD YOU “I LOVE YOU”?
HOW WOULD IT CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

I THOUGHT THAT I WAS ALONE
COULDNT FIND MY WAY HOME
SO I LOOKED TO THE SKY
TRY’N TO FIND AN ANSWER WHY
WHEN I LOOKED BACK DOWN AT THE GROUND
ALL I COULD SEE WAS THE LOVE ALL AROUND
( SOLO)

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU A STORY
SAID EVERYTHING WAS ALL RIGHT
WHAT IF TOLD YOU “I LOVE YOU”?
HOW WOULD IT CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

6. BLUE JAY WAY
music and lyrics by George Harrison
© 1968 ATV/HARRISONGS music

THERES A FOG UPON LA
AND MY FRIENDS HAVE LOST THEIR WAY
WE’LL BE OVER SO THEY SAID
NOW THEY’VE LOST THEMSELVES INSTEAD

PLEASE DONT BE LONG PLEASE DONT YOU BE VERY LONG
PLEASE DONT BE LONG, OR I MAY BE ASLEEP

WELL IT ONLY GOES TO SHOW
AND I TOLD THEM WHERE TO GO
ASK A POLICEMAN ON THE STREET
THERES SO MANY THERE TO MEET

PLEASE DONT BE LONG PLEASE DONT YOU BE VERY LONG
PLEASE DONT BE LONG, OR I MAY BE ASLEEP

NOW ITS PAST MY BED I KNOW
AND I’D REALLY LIKE TO GO
SOON WILL BE THE BREAK OF DAY
SITTING HERE ON BLUE JAY WAY

PLEASE DONT BE LONG PLEASE DONT YOU BE VERY LONG
PLEASE DONT BE LONG, OR I MAY BE ASLEEP
PLEASE DONT BE LONG PLEASE DONT YOU BE VERY LONG
PLEASE DONT BE LONG
PLEASE DONT BE LONG PLEASE DONT YOU BE VERY LONG
PLEASE DONT BE LONG
PLEASE DONT BE LONG PLEASE DONT YOU BE VERY LONG
PLEASE DONT BE LONG
DONT BE LONG – DONT BE LONG – DONT BE LONG
DONT BE LONG – DONT BE LONG – DONT BE LONG

 

7. IN A PERFECT WORLD
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman
 ©2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI

IN A PERFECT WORLD
THE HIGHS AND LOWS HAVE GONE AWAY
JUST HAPPY BOYS AND GIRLS
A DULL DISPLAY IN SHADES OF GRAY

NOTHING FUNNY KEEP IT SUNNY
NO SURPRISES, PLEASE
LEAVE IT RUNNING KEEP IT COMING
JUST TAKE ONE OF THESE

CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN
ABOUT THE FLAWS THAT ARE THE CAUSE
OF SO MUCH JOY AND PAIN
BUT WHAT WOULD LIFE BE WORTH IF LOST ?

GOTTA LIVE WITH ONE ANOTHER
IN DIVERSITY
CANT HAVE ONE WITH OUT THE OTHER
MY PHILOSOPHY

I DONT WANT TO LIVE IN YOUR PERFECT WORLD
NO NO NO
NO ROOM FOR LOVE IN YOUR PERFECT WORLD
(NO ROOM FOR YOU, NO ROOM FOR ME
NOTHING’S EVER PERFECT)

 

8. DREAM OF GOLD
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman
©2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI

THE LIGHT’S SO DIM YOU LOST YOUR WAY
YOU CANT RECALL WHAT GOT YOU HERE TODAY
NEVER REALLY KNOW, TRY AGAIN TOMORROW

ITS BEEN SO WRONG SINCE ITS BEEN RIGHT
WE KNOW ITS WRONG BUT STILL WE FIGHT
IS THAT REALLY ALL THERE IS? THESE TALES OF SORROW

2000 YEARS, WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?
THE TRIALS AND FEARS, THE BRIDGES BURNED
TO TURN AWAY FROM ALL WE KNOW
ONLY FOR A DREAM OF GOLD

YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN TRIED AND TRUE
BUT THAT NEVER REALLY DID MUCH OF ANYTHING FOR YOU
HEAVEN IS A STATE OF MIND FOR YOU TO SHINE

IT’S ALL BEEN SAID, SO MANY WAYS
IT’S STILL THE TRUTH NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY
BUT IF THEY SAYIT ISNT PEACE AND LOVE, THEN THEY’RE LYING, THEY’RE LYING

NOBODY CAN TELL YOU WHATS RIGHT FOR YOU
NOBODY CAN SELL YOU A TICKET TO SHANGRI LA
YOU KNOW THAT ITS TRUE

IT’S ALL BEEN SAID, SO MANY WAYS
IT’S STILL THE TRUTH NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY
BUT IF THEY SAYIT ISNT PEACE AND LOVE, THEN THEY’RE LYING, THEY’RE LYING
2000 YEARS, WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?
THE TRIALS AND FEARS, THE BRIDGES BURNED
TO TURN AWAY FROM ALL WE KNOW
ONLY FOR THAT DREAM OF GOLD

9. LOVE, YOU CAN TAKE IT WITH YOU
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman
 ©2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI…….

SOMETIMES YOU WONDER WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT
SOME SAY ITS ALL AN ACCIDENT
YOU THINK YOU KNOW, BUT STILL YOU HAVE YOUR DOUBTS
ABOUT YOUR TIME AND HOW YOU IT’S SPENT

THERES ONLY ONE THING YOU REALLY KNOW
THAT REALLY MATTERS IN THE END

(DONT YOU KNOW THAT)
LOVE- YOU CAN TAKE IT WITH YOU
ANYWHERE YOU GO , ANY PLACE OR TIME
BECAUSE LOVE- WHEN YOU GOT IT IN YOU
SOMETHING GOOD WILL HAPPEN SOME WHERE DOWN THE LINE

SOMETIMES IT SEEMS LIKE THERE’S NEVER ENOUGH
TO BALANCE ALL THE HURT AND PAIN
THEN YOU’LL SEE SOMEONE WHO NEVER GIVES UP
THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO LIVE AGAIN

DONT THINK TOO MUCH OR
ITLL HARDEN YOUR HEART
AND I CANT MAKE YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND

(DONT YOU KNOW THAT)
LOVE- YOU CAN TAKE IT WITH YOU
ANYWHERE YOU GO , ANY PLACE OR TIME
BECAUSE LOVE- WHEN YOU GOT IT IN YOU
SOMETHING GOOD WILL HAPPEN SOME WHERE DOWN THE LINE

 

10. STANDING IN THE LIGHT
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman
©2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI

THE CHOICES DEFINE US THAT BIND US SO LONG
THE VOICES THAT FIND US REMIND US IN SONG

OPEN UP YOUR EYES SO THAT YOU MAY SEE
OPEN UP THE DOOR SO THAT WE MAY BREATHE

AH, STANDING IN THE LIGHT, STANDING IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR LOVE

THE LOVE THATS REFLECTED IN ALL THERE IS TO SEE
CANNOT BE NEGLECTED, AND EXPECTED TO BE

OPEN UP YOUR EYES SO THAT YOU MAY SEE
OPEN UP THE DOOR SO THAT WE MAY BREATHE

STANDING IN THE LIGHT STANDING IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR LOVE

11. FREE TO FALL IN LINE
Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman
©2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI

YOU DONT HAVE THE RIGHT TO RULE ME
YOU TREAT LIFE AS JUST A GAME
WHY DO YOU STILL KEEP TRYIN TO FOOL ME
THINK I’M JUST A NUMBER AND A NAME?

WE’VE BEEN PERSUADED
AND NOW WERE JADED
KNOW ITS A CRYIN SHAME

LOST IN SENSATION
TOO MUCH INFORMATION
BUT EVERY THING REMAINS THE SAME,

THEY SAY
YOU’RE FREE- FREE TO FALL IN LINE
YOU’RE FREE- JUST DONT FALL BEHIND

WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO TELL ME
HOW TO LIVE OR WHAT TO DO
WHATS THIS LINE YOURE TRYIN TO SELL ME
SO MANY GIVE FOR THE SAKE OF A FEW

COME TO THE CONCLUSION
ITS ALL ILLUSION
CANT TAKE IT TOO SERIOUSLY
NEED FOR POSSESSION
BECOMES OBSESSION
WE COULD SEE THIS SO DIFFERENTLY

( BUT YOU KEEP ON SAYING )
YOU’RE FREE- FREE TO FALL IN LINE
YOU’RE FREE- JUST DONT FALL BEHIND

13. INTUITIVE (Remix 2012)

Music and Lyrics:   Dale Ockerman 
©2012 Dale Ockerman Music BMI


LISTEN CLOSELY TO THE SOUND
OF YOUR BEATING HEART
CAN YOU HEAR THE VOICE INSIDE
REMINDS YOU WHO YOU ARE
SET CONTROLS OF YOUR SYSTEM TO “MANUAL OVERIDE”
LET YOUR SOUL GUIDE DECISIONS
THAT AFFECT YOUR LIFE
CAUSE ITS NOT TOO LATE
TO TRY ANOTHER WAY
DONT GIVE IN TO HATE
JUST TURN, AND WALK AWAY
THE TIME HAS COME TIME TO GIVE
INTO THE INTUITIVE
WE’RE HERE TODAY TO SEE WITHIN
AND LOVE THE WORLD WE’RE LIVIN IN
WHAT BECAME OF THE NOTION
OF THINKING FOR YOURSELF
BUTTONS PUSHED, BY EMOTIONS
LET SOMEBODY ELSE
WHAT YOU FEEL IS WHAT IS REAL
YOU KNOW WHERE YOU’VE BEEN
EXPERIENCE WILL NEVER LIE
THE LESSONS DEEP WITHIN

BUT IT’S NOT TOO LATE
TO TRY ANOTHER WAY
DONT GIVE IN TO HATE
JUST TURN, AND WALK AWAY
THE TIME HAS COME TIME TO GIVE
INTO THE INTUITIVE
WE’RE HERE TODAY TO SEE WITHIN
AND LOVE THE WORLD WE’RE LIVIN IN
SECOND NATURE, SECOND SIGHT
EDUCATE YOUR MIND WITH LIGHT

SECOND NATURE, SECOND SIGHT
INTO THE INTUITIVE
EDUCATE YOUR MIND WITH LIGHT
INTO THE INTUITIVE
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE? ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL
INTO THE INTUITIVE
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE? ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL
INTO THE INTUITIVE
