MY SON HAS GONE AWAY
--------------------
sung by: St. Louis Jesuits

My son has gone away
Left me, gone astray
But, I have seen the way he went
And I will bring him back

(refrain)
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
How could you run away?
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
How long my son?
I'll wait for you
I'll stay

Perhaps my son is weary and cold
Perhaps he's tired and sad
Tonight I'll go and watch again
And wait for his return

(repeat refrain)

PANALANGIN SA PAGIGING BUKAS PALAD
----------------------------------
from Bukas Palad

I
Panginoon, turuan Mo akong maging bukas palad
Turuan Mo akong maglingkod sa Iyo
Na magbigay ng ayon sa nararapat
Na walang hinihintay mula sa Iyo

II
Na makibakang 'di inaalintana
Mga hirap na dinaranas
Sa tuwina'y magsumikap na hindi humahanap
Ng kapalit na kaginhawahan
Na 'di naghihintay kundi ang aking mabatid
Na ang loob Mo'y siyang sinusundan

(repeat I)

 

PAPA, CAN YOU HEAR ME?
----------------------
sung by: Barbra Streisand

God - Our heavenly Father.
Oh, God -- and my father
Who is also in heaven.
May the light
Of this flickering candle
illuminate the night the way
Your Spirit illuminates my soul.

Papa can you hear me?
Papa can you see me?
Papa can you find me in the night?

Papa are you near me?
Papa can you hear me?
Papa, can you help me not be frightened?

Looking at the skies
I seem to see a million eyes
Which ones are yours?
Where are you now that yesterday
Has waved goodbye
And closed its doors?
The night is so much darker.
The wind is so much colder.
The world I see is so much bigger
Now that I'm alone.

Papa, please forgive me.
Try to understand me.
Papa, don't you know I had no choice?

Can you hear me praying,
Anything I'm saying,
Even though the night is filled
With voices?

I remember everything you taught me
Every book I've ever read.
Can all the words in all the books
Help me to face what lies ahead?
The trees are so much taller
And I feel so much smaller.
The moon is twice as lonely
And the stars are half as bright.

Papa, how I love you.
Papa, how I need you.
Papa, how I miss you
Kissing me goodnight.

PRAYER FOR GENEROSITY
---------------------
from Bukas Palad

Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous
Teach me to serve you as I should
To give and not to count the cost
To fight and not to heed the wounds
To toil and not to seek for rest
To labor and ask not for reward
Save that of knowing
That I do Your most holy will.

 

SO FAR AWAY
-----------
sung by: Carole King

So far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door.
Doesn't help to know that you're just time away.
Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again would only do me good
Oh, how I wish I could.
But you're so far away.

One more song about moving along the highway.
Can't say much of anything that's new.
If I could only work this life out my way
I'd rather spend it being close to you.

(refrain)
But you're so far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door.
Doesn't help to know you're so far away.

Traveling around sure gets me down and lonely
Nothing else to do but close my mind.
I sure hope the road don't come to own me.
There's so many dreams I've yet to find.

(repeat refrain)

 

SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD
-----------------------
sung by: Barry Manilow

We had the right love at the wrong time
I guess I always knew inside
I wouldn't have you for a long time
Those dreams of yours, are shining on distant shores
And if they're calling you away
I have no right to make you stay

But...
(refrain)
Somewhere down the road
Our roads are going to cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But, somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours will come to see
That you belong to me

Sometimes goodbyes are not forever
It doesn't matter if you're gone
I still believe in us together

I understand
More than you think I can
You have to go out on your own
So you could find your way back home

And...
(repeat refrain)

Letting go is just another way to say
I'll always love you so

We had the right love at the wrong time
Maybe we've only just begun
Maybe the best is yet to come

Cause...
(repeat refrain)

THIS DAY BELONGS TO ME
----------------------
sung by: Seals & Croft

This is the way to the freedom
I've always dreamed of;
These are the wings
I was never allowed to try;
Come closer and hear me,
There's a world out there to see
I say this day belongs to me.

This is the day I make lovers
and friends of strangers;
My turn to learn in a wonderful
loving care.
Our love will be gentle,
sentimental, fair and sweet,
This day belongs to you and me.

I believe it!
If the stars are in our corner,
we'll have love and laughter
And love is long overdue.
If you see light in my
sympathetic eyes,
It's for you, for you,
All for you.

This is the door that I've waited
so long to open;
This is the day when I'm given
the room to breathe;
One chance in a lifetime,
And my name is on the key
I say this day belongs to me

 

WHAT I DID FOR LOVE
-------------------
from Cast Recording of Chorus Line

Kiss the day goodbye
The sweetness and the sorrow
Wish me luck, the same to you
But I can't regret
What I did for love
What I did for love

Look my eyes are dry
The gift was ours to borrow
It's as if we always knew
And I won't forget
What I did for love
What I did for love

Gone, love is never gone
as we travel on
love's what we'll remember

(refrain)
Kiss the day goodbye
And point me toward tomorrow
We did what we had to do
Won't forget
Can't regret
What I did for love
What I did for love
What I did for love

Love is never gone
As we travel on
Love's what we'll remember

(repeat refrain)

 

YOU COULD SHOW ME
-----------------
sung by: Barry Manilow

I don't know how to begin
To let myself let you in
But, you, maybe you could show me

There's so much more I would say
If someone showed me the way
Like you, maybe you could show me

I've been so used to getting what I want
Doing what I want to do
I've always been the one who took the lead
Now I find I need
I need to follow you

So, won't you help me come through
My future's long overdue
I think I'm ready now
And you could show me how
