COULD

You weren’t with him
When he was sad
I wish I could have been
I wish I could be.

You weren’t with him
When he was lonely
I wish I could have been
I wish I could be.

You weren’t with him
When he was crying
I wish I could have been
I wish I could be.

You weren’t with him
When he needed comforting
I wish I could have been
I wish I could be.

I’M POSSIBLE

In a world
Where rejection stands for impossible
With your total acceptance of me
I’m possible.

In a world
Where unbelievable stands for impossible
With your belief in me
I’m possible.

In a world
Where misunderstood stands for impossible
With your understanding
I’m possible.

In a world
Where unlovable stands for impossible
With your love
I’m possible.

HOLD THE ROSES

I don’t know
If I deserve
Your attention
So hold the roses.

I don’t know
If I deserve
To be your princess
So hold the roses.

I don’t know
If I deserve
To be your queen
So hold the roses.

I don’t know
If I deserve
Your love
So hold the roses.

TRUE MAN

Tears have no shame
Through each that is shed
Honesty can be seen.

Cry if you must
Let the truth flow
Release your joy and pain.

My respect for you will not be lost
Laughter you will not hear
I care too much.

You are honest
You are true
For a true man is not afraid to cry.

KNIGHT, NIGHT

By day
Your helmet
Protects your loving thoughts.

By day
Your breastplate
Protects your loving heart.

By day
Your sword
Protects you from the enemy.

By day
Your shield
Protects you from danger.

By night
When your armor is removed
Its still going to be a knight, night.
