A Little Bit of Heaven

Written by richard kerr & graham lyle
Performed by Natalie Cole

The last guest has gone
I can tell youre as thankful as i
A good time was had by all
And a little wine
I know by that look
(hmm) youve got other things on your mind
And I cant resist that sign

So turn out the lights and close the door
We need the night to be alone
Shut out the world-just let it spin
Why dont we make a little bit of heaven
Just talk to my heart
(ooh) say the words that I want to hear
Darling, tonight I need you near
So turn out the light and close the door
We need some time to be alone
Shut out the world-just let it spin
And maybe well touch
A little bit of heaven

Oh---, oh, oh, hmm---
Shut out the world-just let it spin
Maybe well touch a little bit of heaven
Heavens right here for us
We dont need a mountain to climb, no, no, no
Theres just the two of us
And the love between the lines

Turn out the light and close the door
We need the night to be alone
Shut out the world just let it spin
Why dont we make a little bit of heaven
Turn out the light and close that door
Maybe well find a little bit of heaven
Turn out the light, baby, and close the door
I know we can make a little bit of heaven
Honey, turn out the light, yeah, and close the door
Maybe well find a little bit of heaven
Turn out the light and close the door
Maybe well find, oh, a little bit of heaven

Thank You God

For inspiration, for joy, for hope, for peace... Thank you God for accepting me as I am. I am amazed more and more at your agape love, for your undying committment and your unwaivering truth.

Thank you, from the deepest part of my heart, thank you. I wish I had the voice of a trillion angels, to sing this song of gratitude and thanksgiving.. to speak words that I cannot articulate. To give you even the slightest fraction of what you have given and continue to give to me.

Thank you

To Be

I want to go up high in the mountains early in the morning just as the sun is peaking over the horizon and lay down in the clouds. Submerge myself in the mist and listen as the world comes alive. Those last few calls of the whippoorwill, and the crickets....as they bid their elusive mates goodbye. I want to watch the sun lift that blanket of fog up to the heavens and let her rays shine down on me, watching that sweet dew evaporate away.

I want to listen to the wind pick herself up and watch as she makes her way down the ravine and into the valleys, as the trees bow and their leaves flitter at her touch.

I want the cool air to fill my lungs as I take in the strong perfume of the neighboring firs, and the crisp clean scent of the earth. I want to be, to lie there and feel the pulse of the earth vibrating beneath me, and become a part of it's energy, and just be.

I want to hear his thunderous voice in the wind and the rustling of the leaves, and the roar as she forces herself over the meadow and a billion blades of grass. I want to hear the song, the one you can only hear when there is silence and awareness. When my thoughts cease to move and there is stillness.
