GOODNIGHT LONDON Music and Lyrics by Mike Dawson & Lisa Lazo © 2009 Beechers Brook Publishing I. Sunsets quite late, then beacons dawn early one morning Postcard vistas, a summer breeze fills the village pub Chorus: Goodnight London, Goodnight London, Goodbye to your sweet face II. Crowd loves their music loud, jazz, blues, and rock n’ tunes Rebel singer and piano player, tomorrow they’re both homeward bound Chorus: Goodnight London, Goodnight London, Goodbye to your sweet face (Instrumental) III. Six hours later, flying back on the red eye home Plane stops late at JFK, catch some winks in Queens Bridge: Bandleader is sad and blue Old world shows him something new He’s got a gig in Times Square ‘Rather be playing at an English fair Great songs of love is the wicked groove Peace and love is the British news London never weeps, Soho music speaks Band will return sometime soon Chorus: Goodnight London, Goodnight London, Goodbye to your sweet face Coda: London never weeps, Soho music speaks Goodnight London, Goodnight London, Goodbye to your sweet face

Try To Try 04:33
TRY TO TRY Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lazo © ℗ 2012 Beechers Brook Publishing I. Yesterday’s gone and tomorrow will be here before I know, Oh yesterday’s gone, so today I will drive to the edge of this road. And I’ll kiss goodbye all the tears that I’ve cried, And water the dreams that have yet to be tried, Oh my, oh my, what’s to come if I really try to try this time? II. Yesterday’s gone and tomorrow will be here before ya know, Oh yesterday’s gone and tomorrow will be here before ya know, So today I will call you to tell you how much that I love you, And want you to stay…. Will you drive with me out to the edge of this road? Together explore the unknown Chorus: Try, Try, Oh my, oh my, what’s to come if we really try to try this time, Try to try, Try to try Bridge: Time goes by with a blink of an eye, When you’re here by my side, Loving you takes me away, To an unknown, yet familiar place, It’s something I cannot describe, But to feel it you’ll know deep inside. Chorus: Try to try, Try to try Oh my, oh my, what’s to come if we really try to try this time Try, this time, to try Oh…try, oh…try, oh…try

LETTERS TO HEIDI Music and Lyrics by Mike Dawson © ℗ 2012 Beechers Brook Publishing (ASCAP) I. I’m captured in a Marvelous time Years are like minutes When your love fills my heart I write letters to you Chorus: Letters To Heidi II. One more day on the road No place to call home Weeks an eternity Without you to drive me wild Chorus: Letters To Heidi Bridge: I love you, I want you I can’t breath without you near No peace of mind Driving alone down that dark country road And I cry my heart out Chorus: Letters to Heidi Instrumental III. Before I had the keys to your love I couldn’t unlock my fears Love letters fly, fly like a dove Our heart’s rhythm fill the page Chorus: Letters to Heidi Coda: I close my eyes, and think of sweet things I said I sing songs without words My heart stops and flutters I know you’re waiting for me I love you so much… I close my eyes, and think of sweet things in bed I sing songs without words My heart stops and flutters I know you’re waiting for me… Letters to Heidi (repeat)

Holding You 05:11
HOLDING YOU Music & Lyrics by Lisa Lazo © ℗ 2009, 2012 Beechers Brook Publishing (ASCAP). I. Waiting for you to call, but you don’t anymore It’s not easy… Where you are, I don’t know, but I still feel your heart Deep inside of me… When will it set me free? Cause I’m lost in the same dream… Chorus: You’re holding me, holding me like you never did I’m holding you, holding you like I never did When will it set me free? Set me free…you’re love’s come and gone And I… try to carry on When will it set me free, set me free oh, oh II. Like the wind that comes and goes But will always be forever And the stars that float at night Will always shine together When will I get it right? Until then my heart will bleed forever Chorus: You’re holding me, holding me like you never did I’m holding you, holding you like I never did When will it set me free, set me free? Still holding on to you in my heart Let it go, let it go Bridge: Have I said too much? Well I haven’t said enough, yet I say I’m over you, but the truth will always remain, yes These dreams are beautiful and my heart will always sustain yes Sweet visions of you, visions of us Well this lifetime isn’t over yet Chorus: You’re holding me, holding me like you never did I’m holding you, holding you like I never did You’re holding me, holding me like you never did I’m holding you, holding you like I never did Never did, never did Holding you…

STOP FOR A MOMENT Music by Mike Dawson & Lisa Lazo, Lyrics by Lisa Lazo © ℗ 2009, 2012 Beechers Brook Publishing (ASCAP) I. Caught up in questions, That bare a deep sewn root, To all that was once before. Listening for answers, Listening for the first time, I’ve never stopped long enough to find… Chorus: Just stop for a moment can you hear your heart inside? Just stop for a moment can you feel the love inside? It flickers a spark in me that lights me up inside Cause this love is all the matters today, oh today. II. Have I been truthful? Have I earned this moment? Do I really know what love, love is? Listening in silence, Listening for the first time, I’ve never known myself to stop the fight… Chorus: Just stop for a moment can you hear your heart inside? Just stop for a moment can you feel the love inside? It flickers a spark in me that lights me up inside Cause this love is all the matters today, oh today, Bridge Today…a new dawn burns the clouds away… Where there is silence there’s freedom to be, And where there is freedom there’s love to give… I’ve never stopped long enough to be with the silence, How beautiful life can be when I give myself the freedom, And oh so much love, and so much love to give… Chorus: Just stop for a moment can you hear your heart inside? Just stop for a moment can you feel the love inside It flickers a spark in me that lights the world outside Cause this love is all the matters today, oh today.

SEE YOU IN ME From the CD "Dawson & Lazo" - Music & Lyrics by Mike Dawson & Lisa Lazo © ℗ 2009, 2012 Beechers Brook Publishing (ASCAP). I. See You In Me Wine and song Long nights and short-lived dawns Dreams shared and honest cares I met you in another life, now as then We shape the world, sails unfurled See You In Me II. Life is a force Divine in nature A sweet gift Brings the soul a big lift Journey to the other side A vacation from the norm Capture the heart, an instant shift Real dreams from the mist See You, See You In Me (Instrumental) Bridge: Drinking from Love’s well As far as we can tell Keeps us sane, no need to explain Speaking from truth is all we need to fuel the fire Kills the pain, brighter glows the flame See You In Me III. Stars and souls Bring light to the chaos Love and hope are endless As far as we can tell… Life follows life, now as then We shape the universe, See you, See You In Me See You In Me
