Songs on "My Heart"

My Heart Still Belongs to You
Copyright 2013 Dana Clark

I want to hand my heart to the first man who'll take it
Want to spend all night long making love so sweet
Looking for real romance or a man who'll fake it
I deserve someone new
I tell you he's overdue
But my heart still belongs to you
My heart still belongs to you

I want to do all I can to tarnish my reputation
Ready to rush right in, like a fool would do
I need a true, true love and one or two cheap flirtations
But when I've had the best
Why should I try the rest?
For my heart still belongs to you
My heart still belongs to you

BRIDGE: Now the only time I light up is when I'm near you
I pretend we haven't reached the end
Yet I can't help but hope that I'm not hoping
There's hope that you and I could try again

I should explore my options with some tall dark stranger
Then I would know what hides behind his handsome face
He might be my prince charming or a dance with danger
He could be in his prime
But he's a waste of time
When my heart still belongs to you
My heart still belongs to you

Repeat Bridge

Repeat First Verse 

 

Eight Ball
Copyright Dana Clark

Saturday night downtown pool hall. Jimmy's lining up a shot 
Saturday night, racking eight ball. Hustle you for all you got 
Squinting through the smoke of his cigar, his fedora tilted low 
Jimmy's looking out for an easy mark. One that's got a lotta dough
One that's got a lotta dough 

He'll put the eight ball in the corner pocket 
Hey boys won't you look at this 
Eight ball in the corner pocket 
Five'll get you ten that he won't miss 
Five'll get you ten that he won't miss 
Ooo—I betcha he won't miss 

Lucy's got the hots for Jimmy, and she don't care who knows it 
Lucy calls the shots for Jimmy and she giggles when he blows it 
Standing by the juke-box with a dime, checking out the rhythm and blues 
Jimmy's kinda giving her the eye while he's chalking up his cue 
He's chalking up his cue 

He'll put the eight ball in the corner pocket 
Hey boys won't you look at this 
Eight ball in the corner pocket 
Five'll get you ten that he won't miss 
Five'll get you ten that he won't miss 
Oh, that boy just can't resist 

Stranger strutted in one night, like he thought he was cool 
The game he played was outa sight. He made Jimmy look like a fool 
But when Lucy tried to catch his eye, he choked up on the eight 
Jimmy got hot in the nick of time. You know he didn't hesitate 

He put the eight ball in the corner pocket 
Hey boys won't you look at this 
Eight ball in the corner pocket 
Five'll get you ten that he won't miss 
Five'll get you ten that he won't miss 
Ooo, Lucy's giving him a kiss 

Eight ball in the corner pocket 
He won't miss 
And he can't resist 
And Lucy's giving him a kiss


Back Up (You're Standing Too Close to the Mirror
Copyright 2012 Dana Clark

VERSE: Sometimes you feel insecure 
Not as young as you once were 
And when you want to look your best 
You’re certain you’re a worn-out mess 
Well, I know something you can do 
To readjust your point of view 
To rediscover your lost youth 
Make your reflection tell the truth 

CHORUS: Back up 
You’re standing too close to the mirror 
Back up 
You’ll see a whole lot clearer 
Distance takes away the years 
And all those wrinkles disappear 
Back up! 
Back up, back up, back up! 
You’re standing too close to the mirror 

VERSE: If you’re too close all you will find 
Is beauty that’s the skin-deep kind 
That’s just veneer, it’s artificial 
You’re too deep to be superficial 
Yes, age has brought you inner beauty 
Back far enough you're still a cutie 
Now flash that captivating smile 
You’ll see you've still got lots of style 

CHORUS : Back up 
You’re standing too close to the mirror 
Back up 
You’ll see a whole lot clearer 
You’re no spring chicken anymore 
But you are not a dinosaur 
Back up! 
Back up, back up, back up! 
You’re standing too close to the mirror 

VERSE: You yearn for that romantic glow 
The thrill of love you can’t outgrow 
And when you want someone to pet 
That's just a sign you’re not dead yet 
A soul mate is what I suggest 
Someone to share your cosmic quest 
Together you'll explore the zen of it 
Enjoy your friendship with benefits! 

CHORUS : Back up 
You’re standing too close to the mirror 
Back up 
You’ll see a whole lot clearer 
Focus on the ways you’re hot 
Forget about the ways you’re not 
Back up! 
Back up, back up, back up! 
You’re standing too close to the mirror 

VERSE: When you change how you see you 
Others see you that way, too 
Yes, you can change reality 
By changing your proximity 
Get a yardstick, be persistent 
Find the proper viewing distance 
Back up a bit more every year 
Your vision will stay crystal clear 

CHORUS: Back up! 
You’re standing too close to the mirror 
Back up 
You’ll see a whole lot clearer 
Don’t turn up the lights so bright 
Try to stick to candlelight 
Back up! 
Back up, back up, back up! 
You’re standing too close to the mirror


Solitary Road
Copyright 2013 Dana Clark 

VERSE: I assumed I’d live like all the other people do 
Side by side with someone in a story told by two 
I made the proper promises: “forever and a day” 
Imagine my surprise when it came time to turn away 

CHORUS: For I must walk a solitary road 
Following a melody that only I can hear 
Something like a signal sent in code 
A compass I can count on as I navigate the years 
Still I am grateful for the moments when you held me close 
And I am grateful for the moment when you let me go 

VERSE: Not a challenge I have chosen, but a choice that's chosen me 
To express the inexpressible with words and harmony 
To search out rhyme and rhythm to reflect an honest truth 
A passionate obsession that left less of me for you 

CHORUS: For I must walk a solitary road 
Following a melody that only I can hear 
Something like a signal sent in code 
A compass I can count on as I navigate the years 
Still I am grateful for the moments when you held me close 
And I am grateful for the moment when you let me go 

BRIDGE: This illusion, passion perfect love will never end 
This truth: what we shared as lovers left us best of friends 
Now forward on my own with lessons learned from every loss 
To find completeness in myself has been well worth the cost 

CHORUS: For I must walk a solitary road 
Following a melody that only I can hear 
Something like a signal sent in code 
A compass I can count on as I navigate the years 
Still I am grateful for the moments when you held me close 
And I am grateful for the moment when you let me go


THAT’S IT FOR ROMANCE 
Copyright 2013 Dana Clark 

VERSE: When it comes to flattery I guess I’ve had my share 
I’ve heard my figure is divine, my lips beyond compare 
But empty words and promises just fill me full of doubt 
If that’s what you’ve got on your mind, I’d rather do without 

I’m irresistible. 
So very kiss-able 
You want me. 
Too bad 
You fell in love with me at first glance 
But I’m done. I’m finished. I’m through 
That’s it for romance 

I’m unforgettable. 
So very pet-able 
I haunt you. 
So sad 
I warn you! Don’t you dare ask me to dance 
I’m done. I’m finished. I’m through 
That’s it for romance 

BRIDGE: You say you’ll always be 
Desperately in love with me 
You claim you’re broken-hearted, 
Well, who wouldn’t be? 

I’m unattainable. 
I’m so un-claimable 
You’re daunted? 
I’m glad 
My intuition says “don’t take a chance.” 
I’m done. I’m finished. I’m through. 
That’s it for romance 
I’m done. I’m finished. I’m through 
There’s not a thing you can do 
I’m done. I’m finished. I’m through 
Only a true, true love will do 
I’m done. I’m finished. I’m through 
That’s it for romance! 


You Know It Might Be True 
Copyright 2003 Dana Clark 

VERSE: Is life a battle to be won or is life the greatest gift? 
Must you be a big success or else be cast adrift? 
Will you be a loser, if you are not a star? 
No, life's an invitation. You can come just as you are. 

CHORUS: It's a feast for the senses. 
It's a banquet for the soul 
It's an ocean of blessings. 
Diving in will make you whole. 
Why should you imagine 
That there are no open doors 
When you know it might be true 
That the universe is yours 

VERSE: Surrounded as we are by love we sometimes feel alone. 
And in the midst of plenty hunger haunts our very bones 
Though our lives have no limits we still struggle to be free 
The world is bathed in beauty. Sometimes we’re too blind to see 

CHORUS 

VERSE: With purest air around us are we fighting for each breath 
And in the safest place of all do we fear the face of death? 
We search in vain for heaven when the signs are all around 
It's not someday. Not far away. It's here and it's right now. 

CHORUS


Welcome the Wonder
Copyright Dana Clark

CHORUS: I will welcome the wonder 
I'll embrace the mystery 
I'll explore the world beyond the one my eyes can see 
I will accept the gift of every miracle I'm shown 
'Til my mind begins to grasp the truth 
My heart has always known 
I will welcome the wonder 

I’ve found a secret place within no one can ever share 
And there my thoughts grow quiet. I find peace beyond compare. 
And in that silence deep a single word would be too much 
And all the words in all the world would never be enough 

CHORUS 

Beyond the reach of reason one unchanging truth remains 
So essential, so profound it cannot be explained 
We glimpse the possibilities, a vast infinity 
The endless flow of timelessness we call eternity 
I will welcome the wonder 

SOLO 

I will welcome the wonder 
We may not comprehend the tune but all of us are dancers 
Enchanted by the questions we go searching thru the answers 
Illuminated by the light that cannot be defined 
The conscious flame that animates the whole of humankind 

3X I will welcome the wonder

 
Any Road Will Lead You There 
Copyright Dana Clark 

VERSE: You don’t need all the answers before your journey starts 
You keep your eyes wide open. Take direction from the heart 
That dead-end you imagined might be your second chance 
That long hard uphill climb might soon become a downhill dance 

CHORUS: Yes, every step is simple on your way to reach the goal 
And every place is perfect as you watch your path unfold 
Your passion leads you forward as each dream becomes a dare 
Once you know where you’re going any road will lead you there 

VERSE: You start to feel the power once you can understand 
There are no accidents. It’s all essential to the plan 
And everything you need is right there at your command 
And everyone you meet is there to lend a helping hand 

CHORUS 

VERSE: You trust your intuition. You travel toward the truth 
That most important key has always been inside of you 
You’ll find there are no limits. And there are no mistakes 
You own the path you walk once you’re aware and you’re awake 

CHORUS 

Once you know where you’re going any road will lead you there
