December Prayer – Idina Menzel

In the touch of a friend,
In the breathe of a child,
In the eyes of a soldier coming home
To his mother’s grateful smile,
In the sight of falling snow,
And the memories it brings,
In the season when you find some peace,
In the simple tender things,
Open your heart and look around, listen… listen…

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
And when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
To the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.

In the strength of your hand as it holds unto mine,
and the promise that we’re not alone
In this place and time,
In the gifts that you give, I am humbled and amazed
Far beyond this day and time of year
We are in a state of grace.
Open your heart and look around, listen… listen…

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
and when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
To the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.
Listen… listen…

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
And when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
to the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.

You Learn to Live Without – Idina Menzel

You learn to take your coffee black
You learn to drink your whiskey neat
You learn to take your shower cold
And sleep on tired feet

You learn to order dinner in
You learn to send the laundry out
You learn to amuse yourself

You learn to live without

You tell yourself you’re rich at last in money and in time
You draw a bath and then unplug the phone
You pour yourself a Pinot Clo Du Val 2003
You sit a spell a queen upon her throne
You go to bed alone

You learn to fall asleep alone
You learn to silence ticking clocks
You learn to turn the shades at night
And double check the locks

You learn to speak so calmly when
Your heart would like to scream and shout
You learn to smile and breathe and smile

You learn to live without

You find the coat and tie you thought you’d given to good will
You stumble along a long lost set of chess
You see him there in corners and in closets and on shelves
And truth be told you’d like to see him less

You stumble through the morning but you waken for the day
You tell yourself that all is going well
But now and then a sense of loss just slams you in the chest
You know that no one else can really tell
You make it all seem swell

You learn to count the quiet winds
An hour with no unprompted tears
And not to count the deadly days
As they fade into years

READ  Let It Go (OST. Frozen (2013)) - Idina Menzel

You learn to stand alone at last
So brave and bold and strong and stout
You learn to somehow like the dark
You even love the doubt
You learn to hold your life inside you
And never let it out
You learn to live and live and die and live

You learn to live without
You learn to live without
You learn to live without

Tomorrow – Idina Menzel

The sun’ll come out
Tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There’ll be sun!

Just thinkin’ about
Tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
‘Til there’s none!

When I’m stuck a day
That’s gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,
Oh!

The sun’ll come out
Tomorrow
So ya gotta hang on
‘Til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
I love ya Tomorrow!
You’re always
A day
A way!

Brave – Idina Menzel

Don’t know just where I’m going
And tomorrow, it’s a little overwhelming
And the air is cold
And I’m not the same anymore
I’ve been running in your direction
For to long now
I’ve lost my own reflection
And I can’t look down
If you’re not there to catch me when I fall.

If this is the moment I stand here on my own
If this is my rite of passage that somehow leads me home
I might be afraid
But it’s my turn to be brave
If this is the last chance before we say goodbye
At least it’s the first day of the rest of my life
I can’t be afraid
Cause it’s my turn to be brave

All along all I ever wanted, was to be the light
When your life was daunting
But I can’t see mine
When I feel as though you’re pushing me away
Well who’s to blame, are we making the right choices
Cause we can’t be sure if we’re hearing our own voices
As we close the door even though we are so desperate to stay

If this is the moment I stand here on my own
If this is my rite of passage that somehow leads me home
I might be afraid
But it’s my turn to be brave
If this is the last chance before we say goodbye
At least it’s the first day of the rest of my life
I can’t be afraid
Cause it’s my turn to be brave

And I might still cry
And I might still bleed
These thorns in my side
This heart on my sleeve
And lightening may strike
This ground at my feet
And I might still crash
But I still believe

READ  Everybody Knows - Idina Menzel

This is the moment I stand here all alone
With everything I have inside, everything I own
I might be afraid
But it’s my turn to be brave
If this is the last time before we say goodbye
At least it’s the first day of the rest of my life
I can’t be afraid
Cause it’s my turn to be brave
