The Heart Won't Lie

Composed by Kim Carnes and Donna Weiss
Performed by Vince Gill & Reba McEntire (from "It's Your Call" - Reba's album - 1993)

Looking back over the years
Of all the things I've always meant to say
But the words didn't come easily
So many times through empty fears
Of all the nights I tried to pick up the phone
So scared of who might be answering

You try to live your life from day to day
But seeing you across the room tonight
Just gives me away

Chorus:
Cause the heart won't lie
Sometimes life gets in the way
But there's one thing that won't change
I know I've tried
The heart won't lie
You can live your alibi
Who can see you're lost inside a foolish disguise
The heart won't lie

Long after tonight
Will you still hear my voice through the radio
Old desires make us act carelessly
Long after tonight, after the fire
After the scattered ashes fly
Through the four winds blown and gone
Will you come back to me

You try to love your life from day to day
But seeing you across the room tonight
Just gives me away

Cause the heart won't lie
Sometimes life gets in the way
But there's one thing that won't change
I know I've tried
The heart won't lie
You can live your alibi
Who can see you're lost inside a foolish disguise
The heart won't lie

"The biggest obstacle to most of us achieving our dreams isn't reality, it's our own fear"

I Want To Know What Love Is - Wynonna


Allright, I've been fixin' for a long time now to put the Foreigner version on.  Hmmm, Wynonna Judd or Foreigner?  What do you guys think?

Did I also say most anything by Celine Dion, of course the one from Titanic "My Heart Will Go On" and "A New Day Has Come" and "Because You Loved Me"

We had Celine on the radio station before, and she was shot down, no, she was tied to a wall and pummelled with rocks!  Somehow Brokeback and Celine didn't go together from the listeners that gave feedback..


Is Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" on the playlist?

I've toy'd with putting this on, but I'm fearful people always associate this song with Whitney now.  What do you guys think?

Céline gets lotsa regular air play. I'd shoot her down in a NewYork minute.

Same problem with Dolly's "I Will Always Love You" - sounds WAY too whinny (not a typo!)

With regards ta the Foreigner #1 hit single - try it - don't know Wynonna's version, so I can't comment

S'cuse me - gotta go - you're playin Gord's "If You Could Read my Mind!"

Ok, I just spend 13 hours (yes, from 9am-10pm, all day) updating the radio station.  Yippee.  I need to go get some exercise now.  :D

Enjoy.  And remember, vote "Thumbs Up" or "Thumbs Down".

And keep the suggestions coming!....

More suggestions hun? well, Since "Bookends" by Simon & Garfunkel is so successful, maybe it's time to look again at my most favourite of all Simon & Garfunkel songs "The Boxer"  ;)

Also a couple a Olivia Newton-John offerings: "Please Mr. Please" and "Have You Never Been Mellow" - may not be for the lyrics, but for the mood - and that line "Have you never let someone else be strong" always still gets to me.

Well you do have a lot more room, and for the last two months you've been adding mostry country songs, so I thought I'd try easy listening suggestions instead.

I would have to vote no for Celine and Dolly!
I love the lyrics of I Will Always Love You but I agree withthe Sheriff!
As far as Foreigner or Wynonna, I think Wynonna would be a better fit but I think thats just the kesser of two evils.
IMHO, I like the feel of the station now (country and instumentals) I think putting in pop or easylistening type of music would change the feel too much.
 But, thats just me.

Lyrics for: Moonshadow   by Cat Stephens
 
Oh, I'm being followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin' on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, oh if.... I won't have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, oh if.... I won't have to cry no more.

And if I ever lose my legs, I won't moan, and I won't beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, oh if.... I won't have to walk no more.
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, oh if.... I won't have to talk...

Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light.
Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?


  heres a song that i have always loved.  Used to have all his albums.. But i guess he is a terrorist these days
  I cant believe how our world has turned.
   This reminds me of Jack
