Melody Road Album Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Melody Road

Melody road I'm on with you
All the way to the end
I know every song you lead me to
It's gonna be my friend
Melody road I play all night
Take my guitar and strum
Find me some words that feel just right
The music's gonna come from melody road.

Melody from the heart,
Melody from the start,
Telling things will be OK
I'm thinking I just might stay
On melody road!

Melody road, let's go a mile
I'll tie up my rambling shoes
Write me a song to make you smile
There's no need to sing the blues,
On melody road

Melodies that unfold,
Melodies made of gold,
Making up songs along the way
I'm thinking I just might stay
On melody road!

Ringing out like a bell
Singing out I can't tell
I'm not alone!
Melody road it's you & me
Floating out on a dream
I love every song that comes to me
'Cause I know it comes to be
On melody road, melody road
Melody road, melody road
Melody road!

First Time

Uuh uh, uuh uh
First time, how do you feel?
Little bit strange to little unreal
That first time, you're far from home,
Finally out there on your own
And it's your time for making it happen
It's your time, and it's gonna happen your way
Every step you take from now on,
Be taken as far as you can
You oughta be moving along
Singing your song, and making your plans
First time, first time

Uuh uh, uuh uh
First time, like a farewell wheel
Scared to go, but it's no big deal
That first time it's always the best
Remember it still forget the rest
It's your time so live in the moment
It's your time, you don't want to throw it away!
Still remember the first word you wrote
And every single note that you've played!
Got a book and you learned it by road
Long time ago, remember that day?!
Big rhyme, so fine
First time!

Uuh uh, uuh uh
First time, it comes unaware,
You're un-rehearsed, and unprepared for that
First time, the free unbound
No paying it safe, gotta jump off the ground
It's your time, and good things will happen
But this time, you gotta put your heart on the game!
You're out for the first time,
But you're not really out there alone
Keep doing it, the words gonna spread
Get out of your bed, sat out on your own.
Keep trying, be fine first time!
Uuh uh, uuh uh

This time, the whole world is watching
This time, you better put your heart on the game!
You're rocking for the very first time
You only want the feeling to last,
And every single day that you're going out
Leaves all of your doubts, it's all in the past!
This time, you shine
Your time, first time!

Seongah And Jimmy

Seongah and Jimmy,
Seongah and Jimmy
They found each other
Downtown in Brooklyn
She's from Korea, he's from Long Island
They found each other,
And they discovered love!

Seongah and Jimmy,
Seongah and Jimmy
Both have a sister,
Both have a brother
She learns her English
He learns Korean
They learn that love is spoken in many ways!

Seongah, how close can two lovers be?
Each day's a promise I'll never let you go
Seongah, how long must two lovers dream?
My head is reading feelings I've never known.

Work in the city, go there together
They take the subway, all kinds of weather
Friends in her office know her as Sarah,
Seongah and Jimmy work for a better day.

Seongah and Jimmy,
Seongah and Jimmy
Live near each other, out there in Green Point
Move in together, promise forever
She cooks Korean, he likes Korean too!

Seongah, don't be impatient with me
With you inside me, nowhere that I can't go
Seongah, dream how you want love to be
And I'll make a promise I'll try to make it so

She wants her masters, he helps her study
He has her tooth-fay, she finds a dentist
He says I love you, she knows he means it
She says Saranghae, he knows she means it too!

I hear music in the air
People dancing in the street
Loves in-blossom everywhere
Even strangers start to greet
Love happens in grove land
I know there long ago, and nothing's changed
Brought flowers, she took them
And laughed together in the pouring rain!

Oh yeah!
Seongah and Jimmy,
Seongah and Jimmy
Soon they get married, and came their families
Her's from Korea, his from Long Island
They stayed together, and they had a joyful day
Seongah and Jimmy,
They had so much to say!
Seongah and Jimmy,
They found a better way!

Something Blue

I came with a little bit of sorrow
Was maybe a bit too sad
But one day rolled into tomorrow
And you gave me the best you had
That's how we started together
And how together we're gonna stay

You taught me a little 'bout good times
I fought through a little bit of rain
You brought me a part of your sunshine
You took in the heart of my pain
It wasn't supposed to happen
But then you happened to come my way

Every night, every day
Every word that you say made it so
Every thought that I had
Said I ought to be glad. Now I know

You showed what a little bit of love can do
You opened my eyes and a light came through
Took me to a place that I never knew
Goodbye to my little bit of something blue

You came and you found me wanting
And I'm saying that I'm in your debt
Some days were a little bit daunting
Some days I'd rather forget
You changed my life for the better
And I know I'd better be good to you

Every night, every day
Every word that you say made it so
Every thought that I had
Said I ought to be glad. Now I know

You showed what a little bit of love can do
You opened my eyes and a light came through
Took me to a place that I never knew
So long to my little bit of something blue

It wasn't supposed to happen
But then you happened to come my way

Every night, every day
Every word that you say made it so
Every thought that I had
Said I ought to be glad. Now I know

You showed what a little bit of love can do
You opened my eyes and a light came through
Took me to a place that I never knew
Goodbye to my little bit of something blue

Farewell to my little bit of something blue.

Nothing But A Heartache

It wasn't nothing but a heartache
In the middle of a bad dream
Like I took on the whole world
And I never had a chance, girl
Was a one-way conversation
I never got the invitation
The sharpness of her words deceiving
And I couldn't stop the bleeding
And Lord, I tried to be forgiving
But getting by don't mean you're living
And on that highway going nowhere
Was an exit overdue
And all she had to give was heartache
So she broke my heart in two
Yes, she did
You found me drifting in a small boat
In the middle of an ocean
You were there on my horizon
And I didn't have a notion
Unprepared to comprehend it
Felt alone and unattended
Said my prayers and reached my hand out
And you appeared to me that day
Came and led me to a new shore
I had never been there before
Put me in the right direction
And you led me out of Hell
And if it wasn't for your good heart
I'd have never broke her spell
'cause you promised me tomorrow
And I learned that lesson well
Yes, I did. Yes, I did
You're the sum of all my heartbeats
You're the only truth my heart needs
Showed me how to make the journey
I can't let you walk away. No, not today
'cause I've already slept with heartache
Time to chase the night away
Just the two of us together
Does forever sound okay?
Say, "Yes, it does."
Say, "Yes, it does."
Oh, yes it does.

In Better Days

How do I just forget that you were a part of me?
How do I leave behind everything we knew?
Looking inside of myself, where my heart would be
And all I see is you there too

Two of us goin' around in a state of denial, girl
Neither believin' the way it all came down
Didn't count much lost in paying the cost for a while, girl
Then this old world stopped spinning 'round

In better days we had it all
In better days when love came easy
We had it all but I never knew
How much there was when I had you
In better days, in better days

I remember a time there wasn't a dime between us two
We lived in a little old place on the side of a hill
Gave it our best in love, did the rest for me and you
Too young to lose, too hot to chill

In better days we had it all
In better days when love came easy
We had it all but I never knew
How much I lost when I lost you
In better days, in better days

Why do we promise forever and never stay that long?
Why do we swear to care until we die?
And what does it mean when two lovers sing loving songs
Then move along, and not know why

In better days we had it all
In better days when love was easy
We had it all but I never knew
How much there was between me and you
In better days, back in better days
In better days, way back in better days

(OOO) Do I Wanna Be Yours

I had a dream we were out on a meadow
Just you and me lyin' out in the sun
I knew that somebody would soon come to get you
Was hopin' that maybe I could be the one

Baby, ooo, do I wanna be
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
Knew that I wanna be
Like I never knew it before
And now everywhere I go
I go havin' you on my mind
And all I wanna know
Is ooo, do you wanna be mine
Because
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
For sure
Ooo, do I wanna be yours

I dreamed you were waitin' somewhere on the station
Were hopin' that maybe the right train would come
I heard myself startin' a conversation
And sayin' your waitin' was finally done

Told you, ooo, do I wanna be
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
Knew that I wanna be
Like I never knew it before
And now everywhere I go
I go havin' you on my mind
Now all I wanna know
Is ooo, do you wanna be mine
Because
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
For sure
Ooo, do I wanna be yours

I dreamed you were sittin' up there at your window
Lookin' at me with a strange kind of smile
I knew that you'd take me where I'd never been to
Was hopin' you'd ask me to stay for a while

Sayin', ooo, do I wanna be
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
Knew that I wanna be
Like I never knew it before
And now everywhere I go
I go havin' you on my mind
Now all I wanna know
Is ooo, do you wanna be mine
Because
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
For sure
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
Of course
Ooo, do I wanna be yours

The Art Of Love

She said, It's time to teach you the art of love
She said, we're gonna reach to the heart of love
a place you never knew, a place that lives somewhere inside of you.

I know I'm on a journey I won't forget
I know I had it in me to give and yet I never could
before I had to, if I wanted to be yours.

You made me see I'd have to be a brand new man
he lives in me, so here in me is where I began.

You showed the kind of lesson I can't erase
You showed a way to get from that lonely place
to where love comes alive
and you'd be waiting there when I arrived.

The truth was clear,
love's not a place you go to find
it lives in here
just leave it space, give it time

I learned that I could stumble and maybe fall
I learned in being humble I'd have it all
a brand new way to live,
that love's not what you have but what you give
and the art of love is who you share it with.
