What Tomorrow Will Bring

Steve Van Kessel

 

You’re not on Broadway

No standing ovations for the cold calculations you make

No curtain call roses for the actress who made some mistakes

How much more can I take

 

This isn’t a movie

No innuendos well hidden in grand final scenes

No auditions to cast for the role of a lead drama queen

Is this the way that it has to be

 

Trying to figure it out

But you don’t know what it’s about

All you’ve been told up till now does not mean a thing
You don’t know what tomorrow will bring

No, you don’t know what tomorrow will bring

 

This is a real story

I’m lying here wondering how I will handle it all

I’m listening to a soft rain as it gently falls

I’m staring at shadows on empty walls

 

Trying to figure it out

But you don’t know what it’s about

All you’ve been told up till now does not mean a thing
You don’t know what tomorrow will bring

No, you don’t know what tomorrow will bring

 

 

 

Letting Go

Steve Van Kessel

 

I had a feeling, I’d have the right words to say

I caught you stealing, my tender heart away

The words they failed me, I let you take it away

And now I’m naked, I kind of like it this way

 

I never knew

That letting go

Could feel so free

 

I had a handle, on how I thought it should be

I made decisions, so that you would never see

What I was hiding, way down deep inside of me


I never knew

That letting go

Could feel so free

Ohhh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh (x2)

 

Now I know I never knew

Who you are and what you do to me

You and me we’ve got it made

I can’t believe I was afraid to see

How you are and what you do

To make me want to keep on loving you

 

I never knew

That letting go

Could feel so free

Ohhh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh (x2)

 

You’ve got my heart, you’ve got my soul

You’ve got what I thought I’d never let go

You’ve got my heart, you’ve got my soul

You’ve got what I thought I’d never let go

 

Ohhh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh (x4)

I never knew

That letting go

Could feel so free

 

 

Hold On Now

Steve Van Kessel

 

Some people have stories they don’t like to tell

The more I think about it, perhaps it’s just as well

They say what you don’t know won’t hurt you

Can this be true

Or is it one more reason for them to hide those things they do


Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

 

Do you believe what you’re hearing

Can you believe what you see

The way that I was brought up isn’t staring back at me

They say our fate’s in our own hands, these hands watch them bleed

Let’s raise them up and show them all that we won’t let it be

Whispering words of wisdom…

 

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

 

We’ve got to let them know they are not the saviours

We’ve got to show them all that we aren’t lying down

We’ve got to give them everything that we’re all made of

And strip them of their self-indulgent crowns

And bring em’ down

And bring em’ down

 

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

Hold On Now

 

Smelling Like Roses

Steve Van Kessel

 

I was once struck by lightening

You’d think It’d be frightening

But it helped me to see

I was flying a kite

In the middle of the night

The only time I had to be free

Amidst the chaos and smoke

I saw this old bloke

And he smiled and he said to me

 

When it’s all done, you’ll come out smelling like roses

Yeah, when it’s all done, you’ll come out smelling like roses

 

I was on the plains of Serengeti

My palms were all sweaty

And a beast was staring me down

All that heat from the sun

My first thought was to run

The silence a deafening sound

Instead I believed in what that bloke said to me

And I ended up holding my ground

 

He said

When it’s all done, you’ll come out smelling like roses

Yeah, when it’s all done, you’ll come out smelling like roses

 

I was hanging by one hand

Forty floors above the land

I was told to never look down

As I bit my lip, I felt my grip slip

And the wind was blowing me all around

I hung in for the haul, I didn’t let myself fall

That bloke’s words kept me hanging around

 

He said

When it’s all done, you’ll come out smelling like roses

When it’s all done, you’ll come out smelling like roses

When it’s all done, you’ll come out smelling like roses

 

Love Me Baby

Steve Van Kessel

 

What can I do to make you love me baby

What can I do to make you love me baby

What can I do to make you love me baby

 

Can I take you by the hand and make you understand

That I didn’t mean to do anything that would make you feel like you were nothing

No, you’re everything to me

That’s what I want you to see

But you can’t

 

What can I do to make you love me baby

What can I do to make you love me baby

What can I do to make you love me baby

 

Can I win back your heart and have a fresh start

Oh you’re nothing less than the girl that can rule my whole world

With your beautiful smile

Won’t you just stay for awhile

No you can’t

 

What can I do to make you love me baby

What can I do to make you love me baby

I’m asking you, what can I do to make you love me baby

Oh, what can I do to make you love me baby

 

Can I take back those words that cut you so deep

Can I hold you once more while you fall asleep

And feel my warm breath on the back of your neck

Can you find it within you to have no regrets

Can you help me to see what it would be like

If we just held each other to make it feel right

Can you find it within you to give one more try

Cause I’m sitting here waiting and wondering why

But you can’t

No you can’t

 

 

 

 

The One

Steve Van Kessel

 

Trying to keep it together when it’s falling apart

It’s like when you were younger and afraid of the dark

You need someone to hold you, and to say it’s alright

Someone who will take care of everything that’s not right

 

I’ll be the one to comfort

I’ll be the one to hold

I’ll be the one promise to never be the one to let you go

I’ll be the one to never let you go

I’ll be the one

 

It was all so much better when you were able to care

You believed you could take and had something to share

 

I’ll be the one to comfort

I’ll be the one to hold

I’ll be the one promise to never be the one to let you go

I’ll be the one to never let you go

I’ll be the one

 

You’ve got to let me, oh let me, be the one

You’ve got to let me, oh let me, be the one

 

You don’t trust any others, you never open your door

You just act like a stranger, you don’t care anymore

It’s a sad situation, one you never asked for

And it’s time you made changes, you deserve so much more

 

I’ll be the one to comfort

I’ll be the one to hold

I’ll be the one promise to never be the one to let you go

I’ll be the one to never let you go

I’ll be the one to never let you go

I’ll be the one to never let you go

I’ll be the one

 

 

 

 

Someday, Someway

John LeBarr

 

The day she left with regret

Under the sky that don’t forget

She only remembered the kiss

That filled her heart with emptiness

 

Someday, somebody’s gonna love you

Someway, somebody’s gonna need you

Good things are gonna come your way

Someday, somebody’s gonna love you

Someway, somebody’s gonna need you

Your remedy is on the way

 

When the watchman sees you move on by

Like a tempest you wake the morning sky

All those things that I said of you

Come back through the mirror it’s so true

 

Someday, somebody’s gonna love you

Someway, somebody’s gonna need you

Good things are gonna come your way

Someday, somebody’s gonna love you

Someway, somebody’s gonna need you

Your remedy is on the way

 

Spread your wings to the wind

Feel the sun warming your skin

Breath the sweet sounds as you fly

Hold in your arms all that you find

 

Someday, somebody’s gonna love you

Someway, somebody’s gonna need you

Good things are gonna come your way

Someday, somebody’s gonna love you

Someway, somebody’s gonna need you

Your remedy is on the way

Someday, somebody’s gonna love you

Someway, somebody’s gonna need you

Good things are gonna come your way

Someday, somebody’s gonna love you

Someway, somebody’s gonna need you

Your remedy is on the way

 

 

 

That’s Why I Love You

Steve Van Kessel

 

You know that you are the only one for me

You know that this is a fact with which I will never disagree

You keep me from going the wrong way

When it’s the only way I know

For this I need to tell you that it’s why I love you so

 

That’s why I love you, that’s why I love you so

I hope you don’t mind me singing it out cause I want the world to know

 

You give me all of the loving that I need

Your kindness and affection are always offered up for free

You’re the one that keeps me honest

That’s not easy for you I know

For this I need to tell you that it’s why I love you so

 

That’s why I love you, that’s why I love you so

I hope you don’t mind me singing it out cause I want the world to know

 

You bring me up whenever I’m feeling down

You’re a friend and a lover and a pleasure to be around

You say it the way you see it and you do it the way you know

For this I need to tell you that it’s why I love you so

 

That’s why I love you, that’s why I love you so

I hope you don’t mind me singing it out cause I want the world to know

That’s why I love you, that’s why I love you so

I hope you don’t mind me singing it out cause I want the world to know

 

 

 

 

 

Break Me

Steve Van Kessel

 

Can you help me to see the way it should be

Cause I’m blinded and I can’t see the light

These vices I hold, they’re making me old

But they help me to get through the night

The choices I’ve made weren’t the ones to be played

It’s easy to see in hindsight

You hold out your hand, please know I understand

I know what I’m doing is wrong, how can I make it alright

 

Take me, you’ve got to break me

Take the reins and saddle me down

I’ll put up a fight but at the end of the night

Baby, will you stay around

Oh yeah, will you stay around

Baby, will you stay around

 

Well it’s so complicated and I know you’re frustrated

With the way I’ve been living my life

It’s a shame you can’t see what it’s doing to me

All the pain, the trouble and strife

From all that I do, your strength it shines through

The tension you can cut with a knife

If you ‘ll help me find all that I’ve left behind

There’ll be no more excuses for handing out all of those lies

 

Take me, you’ve got to break me

Take the reins and saddle me down

I’ll put up a fight but at the end of the night

Baby, will you stay around

Oh yeah, will you stay around

Baby, will you stay around
