Anne Murray Even The Nights Are Better

I, I was the lonely one

Wondering what went wrong, why love had gone

And left me lonely

I, I was so confused, feeling like I’d just been used

And you came to me, and my loneliness left me

I used to think I was tied to a heartache

That was the heartbreak, but now that I’ve found you

Even the nights are better now that we’re here together

Even the nights are better since I found you, oh

Even the days are brighter

When someone you love’s beside ya

Even the nights are better since I found you

You, you knew just what to do

‘Cause you had been lonely too

And you showed me how to ease the pain

And you did more than mend a broken heart

‘Cause now you’ve made a fire start

And I can see that you feel the same way

I never dreamed there’d be someone to hold me

Until you told me, and now that I’ve found you

Even the nights are better, now that we’re here together

Even the nights are better since I found you, oh

Even the days are brighter

When someone you love’s beside ya

Even the nights are better since I found you

[Repeat]

Anne Murray Some Days It Rains All Night Long

Sometimes I know how the melody goes

But I don’t know the words to the song

Some days go by not a cloud in the sky

And some days it rains all night long

Sometimes it seems like it’s just you and me

And nothing could ever go wrong

But love is so strange sometimes it stays

And some days it rains all night long

Sometimes our best isn’t all it could be

And sometimes we don’t even try

But somehow or other we find what we need

To keep us from saying goodbye

Sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s sad

Somehow we keep hanging on

Waiting for rainbows that follow the storm

And some days it rains all night long

Some days it rains all night long

Anne Murray Somebody’s Waiting

When the rooms are all in darkness

And you’re knockin’ at the door

No one seems to live here anymore

Footsteps in the doorway

Echos in the hall

You know someone’s waiting here for you.

When it’s cold outside your window

And there’s snow inside your shoes

And you’re waiting out the cold December blues

Don’t hesitate

Three o’clock’s not late

You know someone’s waiting here for you.

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting here for you

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting

You know someone’s waiting here for you.

When the grey clouds roll all over

All your sunny days

And the colours that surround you fade away

Look to your side

Reach out your hand

‘Cause you know someone’s waiting here for you.

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting here for you

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting

You know someone’s waiting here for you.

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting here for you

Somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting

You know someone’s waiting here for you…

Anne Murray Danny’s Song

People smile and tell me I’m the lucky one

And we’ve just begun

I think I’m gonna have a son

He will be like him and me, as free as a dove

Conceived in love

The sun is gonna shine above

And even though we ain’t got money

I’m so in love with you honey

Everything will bring a chain of love

And in the morning when I rise

Bring a tear of joy to my eyes

And tell me everything’s gonna be all right

Love a guy who holds the world in a paper cup

Drink it up

Love him and he’ll bring you luck

And if you find he helps your mind, better take him home

Yeah, and don’t you live alone

Try to earn what lovers own

And even though we ain’t got money

I’m so in love with you honey

Everything will bring a chain of love

And in the morning when I rise

Bring a tear of joy to my eyes

And tell me everything’s gonna be all right

And even though we ain’t got money

I’m so in love with you honey

Everything will bring a chain of love

And in the morning when I rise

Bring a tear of joy to my eyes

And tell me everything’s gonna be all right

Anne Murray Destiny

I love you

You love her

There’s nothing I can do

It was in my destiny to fall for you

You say you

Could never give

Me a love that’s true

It was in my destiny to fall for you

And there ain’t a thing I can do about it

You know I can’t live without it

All I can say is hey hey hey

I love you

You say why

Don’t I try

To find someone new

It was in my destiny to fall for you

To fall for you

Think I’m falling for you

Da da da da da da da

There ain’t a thing I can do about it

You know I can’t live without it

All I can say is hey hey hey

I love you

Anne Murray Hey Daddy

Hey daddy there’s a dragon in the driveway,

Mamma there’s a grizzly on the lawn.

You better come quick ‘cause there’s a hippo in the bathtub

And it’s going down the drain, oh no its gone!

Well the minds of little children, they go round and round and round.

Hearing giants footsteps when I never hear a sound.

Hey daddy there’s a dragon in the driveway,

Mamma there’s a grizzly on the lawn.

You better come quick ‘cause there’s a hippo in the bathtub

And it’s going down the drain, oh no its gone!

But you never know if they really saw all the things they have you believe,

But if there’s dragons in this neighborhood then we’re gonna leave.

Hey daddy there’s a dragon in the driveway,

Mamma there’s a grizzly on the lawn.

You better come quick because there’s a hippo in the bathtub

And it’s going down the drain, oh no its gone!

And it’s going down the drain oh no its gone!

And it’s going down the drain oh no its gone!

Anne Murray Help Me Make It Through The Night

Take the ribbon from my hair

Shake it loose and let it fall

Lay it soft against the skin

Like the shadows on the wall.

Come and lie down by my side

Till the early morning light

All I’m takin’ is your time

Help me make it through the night.

I don’t care what’s right or wrong

And I won’t try to understand

Let the devil take tomorrow

But tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday is dead and gone

And tomorrow’s out of sight

And it’s sad to be alone

Help me make it through the night.

I don’t care what’s right or wrong

And I won’t try to understand

Let the devil take tomorrow

But tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday is dead and gone

And tomorrow’s out of sight

And it’s sad to be alone

Help me make it through the night.

I don’t wanna be alone

Help me make it through the night…

Anne Murray Son Of A Rotten Gambler

And his love

Will be his vision

And he’ll take you

Where you stand

And will you stand

Your life by his and help the boy

Become a man?

Will he be the son of his father?

His father, the teacher?

Teaching love and honesty

And being his own man handler

Or the son of

The son of a run of the mill run

Rotten gambler?

Will the devil

Be getting to you

As you look back

Over what you’ve done?

And what you’ve done

Was it for reason or for rhyme?

Was it just for fun?

Will he be the son of his father?

His father, the teacher?

Teaching love and honesty

And being his own man handler

Or the son of

The son of a run of the mill run

Rotten gambler?

Back on the road now

You can lose your head

There ain’t no kingdom for the gambling man

You know the road now

And you’ve made your stand

When his eyes shine upon you

Shine upon you

Will he be the son of his father?

His father, the teacher?

Teaching love and honesty

And being his own man handler

Or the son of

The son of a run of the mill run

Rotten gambler?

Anne Murray Why Don’t You Stick Around

How many times have you let me down

You never stay when you come around

I see no reason why you have to slip away

Come on in while I pour the wine

We’ll drink it slow and take our time

No need to hurry

You don’t have to slip away

I like the drawn out test to test

I like my feet right on the ground

I take a long time getting on to matters close at hand

Why don’t you stick around

Why don’t you why don’t you stick around

I said now why don’t you why don’t you stick around

I see no reason why should have to slip away

The time is ours so we’ll raise a glass

Here we are alone at last

Don’t have to worry

I won’t let you get away

I like the drawn out test to test

I like my feet right on the ground

I take a long time getting on to matters close at hand

Why don’t you stick around

Why don’t you why don’t you stick around

I said now why don’t you why don’t you stick around

Why don’t you why don’t you stick around

I said now why don’t you why don’t you stick around

Oh hoo hoo

I see no reason why you have to slip away

Why don’t you why don’t you stick around

I said now why don’t you why don’t you stick around

Oh hoo hoo

I see no reason why you have to slip away

Why don’t you why don’t you stick around

I said now why don’t you why don’t you

Anne Murray Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,

In the lane, snow is glistening

A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight,

Walking in a winter wonderland.

Gone away is the bluebird,

Here to stay is a new bird

He sings a love song, as we go along,

Walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,

Then pretend that he is Parson Brown

He’ll say, Are you married? We’ll say, No man.

But you can do the job when you’re in town.

Later on, we’ll conspire,

As we dream by the fire

To face unafraid the plans that we’ve made,

Walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,

And pretend that he’s a circus clown

We’ll have lots of fun with mister snowman,

Until the other kiddies knock him down.

When it snows, ain’t it thrilling,

Though your nose gets a chilling

We’ll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,

Walking in a winter wonderland.

Walking in a winter wonderland,

Walking in a winter wonderland…
