Brian Wilson Gettin’ In Over My Head

I couldn’t believe the sensation when you kissed my face

The look in your eyes and the feelin’ of your embrace

I try to be strong but that isn’t so easy for me

I wish I could figure what this thing would turn out to be

Am I gettin’ in over my head?

It’s gettin’ deeper all the time

Yes I’m gettin’ in over my head

And it’s scarin’ me right outta my mind

It’s all I can do to keep from fallin’ off the track

I try to resist you but I always keep comin’ back

As a matter of fact it’s so heavy I’ve been losin’ sleep

I don’t know what’s happenin’

‘Cause I’ve never been in so deep

Am I gettin’ in over my head?

It’s the strangest feelin’ I’ve ever had

Yes I’m gettin’ in over my head

And maybe that ain’t so bad

No one could ever change my mind

I’ve got to see for myself this time

I just might not ever come back from this

You hold me so close I can feel the softness of your sighs

I lose all control every time you look in my eyes

I try to be cool and take it slow but I don’t know how

It’s makin’ me wonder if anything can stop me now

Am I gettin’ in over my head?

I never thought it’d be this way

Yes I’m gettin’ in over my head

And this is where I wanna stay

Brian Wilson Love And Mercy

I was sittin’ in a crummy movie

With my hands on my chin

All the violence that occurs

Seems like we never win

Love and mercy, that’s what you need tonight

So love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was lying in my room

And the news came on TV

A lotta people out there hurtin’

And it really scares me

Love and mercy, that’s what you need tonight

Love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was standing in a bar

And watching all the people there

Oh, the loneliness in this world

Well it’s just not fair

Hey, love and mercy, that’s what we need tonight

So love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

Love and mercy, that’s what you need tonight

Love and mercy tonight

Love and mercy tonight

Brian Wilson Christmasey

It’s finally here

It’s that special season

The day is near

You know that’s the reason

And it’s smelling so Christmasey

When we’re smelling that Christmas tree

And all the goodies are stashed away

Waitin’ for you on a silver tray

And we’re feelin’ so Christmasey

Like the feeling that it used to be

And I’m happy as a little kid

We’re guessing where’s the present’s hid

Put up the lights so we can see

It’s so Christmasey

It’s almost time

To light up the candles

The church bells chime

It’s a song of Handle’s

And the music’s so Christmasey

Percolatin’ inside of me

Like a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll

Like a little bit of Chritsmas soul

And we’re feelin’ so Christmasey

Goin’ out on a shoppin’ spree

Give a present with a great big bow

To a stranger we don’t even know

We’ll have our fun and be carefree

‘Cause it’s Christmasey

Now is the time

We’ve waited for

Go let in the neighbors

‘Cause they’re knockin’, so open the door

And I’m feelin’ so Christmasey

Percolatin’ inside of me

And it gives me such a great big lift

Makes me want to give myself a gift

And I’m feeling so Christmasey

I want someone to dance with me

Christmas caroles are understood

Let the people know we’re feelin’ good

It didn’t snow but we all agree

It’s still Christmasey

It didn’t snow (it didn’t snow) but we all agree

It’s still (it’s still) Christmasey

Brian Wilson How Could We Still Be Dancin’?

Dancin’, dancin’

Dance the night away

Dance the night away

1:30… 2:30

Dancin’ my love

How could we still be dancin’

After all these years

How could we still be laughin’

After all those tears?

How could we still be friendly

After slammin’ those doors

How could we still be livin’

After all those wars

Hey, everybody

Help to make this feelin’ right

Oh, won’t you help to make this feelin’ right

How could we still be rockin’

After all those times

How could we still be rolling’

And still be makin’ rhymes?

How could we still make music

After MTV

How could we still get things crankin’

And see what we can be

Hey, everybody

Help to make this feelin’ right

Oh, won’t you help to make this feelin’ right

Dancin’, dancin’

Dance the night away

Dance the night away

1:30… 2:30

Dancin’ my love

How could we still be dancin’

After all these years

How could we still be laughin’

After all those tears

How could we tell the difference

Between right and wrong

Confusion reigned for so long

But now we found our song

Hey, everybody

Hey, everybody

Brian Wilson Can You Feel The Love Tonight?

There’s a calm surrender to the rush of day

When the heat of the rolling world can be turned away

An enchanted moment and it sees me through

It’s enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

And can you feel the love tonight? It is where we are

It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer that we got this far

And can you feel the love tonight? How it’s laid to rest

It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds believe the very best

There’s a time for everyone if they only learn

That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn

There’s a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors

When the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours

And can you feel the love tonight? It is where we are

It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer that we got this far

And can you feel the love tonight? How it’s laid to rest

It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds believe the very best

It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds believe the very best

Brian Wilson It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

It came upon the midnight clear

That glorious song of old

From angels bending near the earth

To touch their harps of gold

Peace on the earth, goodwill to men

From heaven’s all gracious king

The world in solemn stillness lay

To hear the angels sing

Still through the cloven skies they come

With peaceful wings unfurl

And still their heavenly music floats

O’er all the weary world

Above its sad and lowly plains

They bend on hovering wing

And ever o’er its Babel sounds

The blessed angels sing

Above its sad and lowly plains

They bend on hovering wing

And ever o’er its Babel sounds

The blessed angels sing

It came upon the midnight clear

That glorious song of old

From angels bending near the earth

To touch their harps of gold

When the new heaven and earth shall own

The prince of peace their King

And the whole world send back the song

Which now the angels sing

Which now the angels sing

Brian Wilson Somewhere Quiet

Late at night my head walks around you

Your answers knock at my door

Could it be you’ve seen all your chances

And somehow you still want more

Lost inside a deep sea of faces

Surrounded by eyes still alone

Trying to drown out the voices of sadness

To hear that one clear tone

I wanna take you somewhere quiet

So I can hear what’s in my heart

Are you as real as I imagine

Or just the one who plays the part

I found myself lost in your wonder

Happy to be the proof

You’re the answer that doesn’t ask questions

Because you’re simply the truth

I wanna take you somewhere quiet

So I can hear what’s in my heart

Are you as real as I imagine

Or just the one who plays the part

Who we are, love keeps on guessing

Perhaps it will never know

There is much beauty in mystery

That’s why I love you so
