Vanessa Williams The First Noel

The first noel, the angels did say

Was to certain poor shepherds,

In fields as they lay

In fields where they

Lay keeping their sheep

On a cold winter’s night, that was so deep

[Chorus:]

Noel, noel

Noel, noel

Born is the king of israel

When they looked up, and saw a star

Shining in the east, beyond them far

And to the earth, it gave great light

And so it continued both day, and night

[Chorus (2x)]

(noel, noel)

[Chorus (4x)]

Vanessa Williams Open Your Eyes, You Can Fly

Never be afraid to love

Never be afraid to just be

Just cast away the chains of doubt

Have the courage to be free

Don’t cloud your rise with father’s lies

See only what you want to see

To stuplicate the simple truth

Have the courage to be free

Open your eyes you can fly

Open your eyes you can fly

You can fly (uh uh)

You can fly

Never be afraid to love (no, no, no…)

Never be afraid to just be

Cast away the chains of doubt

Have the courage to be free

Open your eyes you can fly (fly away)

Open your eyes you can fly

You can fly (fly, fly, fly)

Open your eyes (yeah) you can fly (fly away)

Open your eyes you can fly

You can fly (mhh)

You can’t wait for others to applaud what you do

So just congratulate youself

And start something new

Open your eyes you can fly (open your eyes)

Open your eyes you can fly (you can fly with me)

Vanessa Williams You Can’t Run

Show me a heart that’s got no passion

I’ll show you a heart that’s got no life

Show me a man that doesn’t give his heart

I’ll show you a man that tells you lies

Ooo you can try to run, but there’s nowhere to hide

Love is stronger than your lies

Oh and ooo, you can deny it all you want

But love will win, it’s just a matter of time

You know you can’t run from love

You know, you know

You know you can’t run

Ain’t nowhere to hide

You know, you can’t run you know

You know, you know

You know you can’t run

Love is stronger than your lies

Show me a heart that’s not committed

I’ll show you a man that doesn’t try

Show me a heart that doesn’t die for love

I’ll show you an empty man inside

Ooo you can run, but you won’t find no place to hide

Love don’t want your heart to die

Oh and ooo, you can deny love all you want

But love is strong and love won’t be denied

You know you can’t run from love

You know, you know

You know you can’t run

Ain’t nowhere to hide

You know, you can’t run you know

You know, you know

You know you can’t run

Love is stronger than your lies

Vanessa Williams Gracious Good Sheperd

Gracious Good Shepherd

Do you really know who I am?

Gracious Good Shepherd

Will you answer when I call your name?

Gracious Good Shepherd

You can hear confusion crying out

Gracious Good Shepherd

What little faith I have I am ashamed

I visualize an angel

All freezing and bitter cold

I cannot believe the love there

What heavenly sacrifice

Gracious Good Shepherd

If you hear me now, I love you so

Gracious Good Shepherd

Why for me?

Gracious Good Shepherd

You say you love the lost born

Gracious Good Shepherd

I believe that one is me

Some tell me the virgin birth is

A beautiful ancient tale

But you tell me God’s constellation

Led all to the living well

Gracious Good Shepherd

If you hear me now, I love you so

Gracious Good Shepherd

Why, why for me?

Gracious Good Shepherd

Do you really know who I am?

Gracious Good Shepherd

Will you answer when I call your name?

Gracious Good Shepherd

These are different times, I’m sure you see

Gracious Good Shepherd

We need, you now
