1. Next To You

I really dreaded writing the follow up ballad to "Castles in the Sand" from the 'TRUTH' CD... But the writing came at a time when I hit a new level in life - New wife, pregnant with my son - Now if you can't find something sweet to sing about at a time like that... This one just wrote itself until about 3:45 in the morning, and it says exactly what I was feeling then AND now.


It’s a silent Sunday morning
Sunlight on your face
The world goes on around us
While you dream in sleeping grace
Sometimes I feel so lucky
To be the man to hold the key
To a lifetime of tomorrows
And our unknown destiny
I don’t pretend to know it all
But I know this much is true
I’m looking at forever in your eyes – I’ll be standing next to you
In a venture to the moon and back,
I’d meet with Father Time
To treasure every second spent
Between your heart and mine
Making memories together
And sharing all your days
I’ll be the one to touch your face
And wipe your tears away
If the world falls down on you
I’ll be there to pull you through
Yes I can see forever in your eyes – and I’m standing next to you
And if I get to heaven first
I’ll be smiling down on you
I will be forever in your eyes
I promised you forever by your side
I will live forever in your eyes – standing next to you
I’ll be standing next to you
