I just watched part of the Farrah Fawcett Story documenting her struggle with cancer. I couldn’t watch it all, it was too emotional, What a brave and strong woman.
I wish Ryan O’neal could listen to this story and song, I think he could relate, as well as anyone who has lost a loved one to cancer. If you listen, listen ’til the end; it’s about much more than birds.
p.s. a special thanks to Josh Ford and Erin Elise Accomandofor help with the song.

CALLING UP TO HEAVEN

Hello… hello hello.

I’m calling up to heaven

Just to say hello

 

Hello…hello hello.

I miss you

Like you’ll never know.

 

I’ve got a new phone and it has a special ap.

They say I can call you anywhere you’re at

So I’m calling up to heaven just to talk to you

One more time.

 

I found your number with your old things

So I’m giving it a call just to see if it rings

And maybe you’ll answer and tell me that

You’re doing fine

 

Hello… hello hello.

I’m calling up to heaven

Just to say hello

 

Hello…hello hello.

I miss you

Like you’ll never know.

The River

I

 

I know a girl

She liked to get kinky

She liked to get sweaty

And she liked to get stinky

She liked to make love

In public places

She’d wear loose clothes

And make funny faces

She liked to go down

on judges and cops

But then she got busted

And she had to stop

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.

 

I used to run

With a dangerous crowd

We liked to get drunk

And we liked to get loud

Then one day

We got out the forty=five

Man I was lucky to get out alive

I hear Tommy’s

Still on the run

It’s a big price to pay

For a little bit of fun

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.

 

Well Billy Bob

Didn’t think twice

’bout laying down

With his neighbor’s wife

Neighbor came home

Caught him in his bead

put two bullets

In Billy Bob’s head

Now poor Billy is

Dead and gone

Never got a chance

To hear my song

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.

If I had a dollar

For every time you said goodbye

I’d build that dream house in the countryside

 

And if I had a dollar

For every time that we’ve made up

I’d be the richest man in America

 

But I don’t have a dollar

I’m just trying to make some sense

Of the craziness we’ve been going through lately

 

‘cause I can’t get no credit

For all the good things that I’ve done

I just get blamed for all the bad things

………………

If I had a dollar

I’d buy you a flower

And maybe you’d be happy for a little while

 

But being that I’m broke

All I got’s a song and joke

But maybe that’s good enough for you

 

But the only way I’m poor

Is if I can’t have you no more

‘cause babe when I’m with you  I’m A Rich man

 

But if I’m broke or not

I’d give everything I’ve got

Just to hold you in my arms one more time

                  ……………….

If I had a dollar

If I had a dollar

If I had a dollar

I’d spend it all on you

      (repeat)

Waited

I stood on a mountain and looked down at the sea                                                                        I raised my my head and fell down to my knees

I prayed to the Lord to forgive me for my sins                                                                            He said “Sorry son but I think that you’ll do it again.”

So I climbed down the mountain and jumped into the sea                                                          I started drowning ‘til a mermaid rescued me.

I’ve waited my whole life to meet a girl like you.                                                                      But now that I met you I don’t know what to do

{Vocals by Erin Accomando}

The Light in your Eyes

 

I see the light in your eyes

It brightens up my darkened skies

You’re like a nude sunrise

I love the light in your eyes

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love the light in your eyes

It shines right through my dark disguise

And it makes me realize

That there’s a truth behind my lies

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love the light in your eyes………..

 

{Spanish}

 

I see the light in your eyes

It shines so bright I’m hypnotized

And it helps me realize

That there’s no reason not to try

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love that light in your eyes

It shines so bright, so strong and wise

It makes me realize

That there’s no need for my disguise

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

Deeter’s Prayer

Thank you lord for these eyes that allow me to see what others overlook.

Thank you for the ears that hear sounds that others cannot comprehend.

For the tongue that lets me savor the hidden fruits of your garden.

The nose that smells the wildflowers scattered about the path.

And skin to feel the private passions of a true love.

 

And now I ask you, for just one moment, to take it all away

So that I can be one with you.
