Ballads

Catch You if you Fall

Performed by Barbara Lindesay
Sykes and Sykes Publishing
Words & Music Chrissy Sykes / Chris Frank
© 2011 PRS
Music Arrangement Stuart Sykes

Verse
I see how much that you have grown And soon you'll face the world alone
Trying to find what life's about And how to get it right
You'll make mistakes along the way And you'll be hurt by things they say
You'll fall in and out of love Till you find out for yourself

And on those nights when you’re on your own When no one understands you
And there’s nowhere else to turn...

Chorus
I will catch you if you fall , I will be here waiting if you want to call
I will catch you if you fall , I will always be here whenever you need me

Verse
And when your lost for words to say - When this old world gets in the way
My child try to understand Just reach out each and for my hand - Ill be there beside you

And when your walls come tumbling down - And the storms are all around
Never give up, never loose hope - I'll be there beside you

Chorus
I will catch you if you fall , I will be here waiting if you want to call
I will catch you if you fall , I will always be here whenever you need me
Just call Just call

If You Must Fall In Love
© 1996 Registered with PRS UK

Words and Music Chrissy Sykes


Verse
I can feel the wind in my hair
Why should I care
There's nothing left for me
I could go on right along
Pretend nothings wrong
Thats what you want from me

Middle 8
And I'm not gonna turn the other cheek this time
If you're looking for love it's not gonna be mine

Chorus
If you must fall in love
Don't make it me
Try someone else's heart
Mines all broken up you see
If you must fall in love
Don't make it me
Give someone else a try
I've got no more tears to cry
There's nothing left inside - of me

Verse
I thought I could turn it around
Once I had found - what I could be for you
But you changed the rules every day
Always wanting your way
Now I'm telling you I'm through

Middle 8
And I'm not gonna turn the other cheek this time
If you're looking for love it's not gonna be mine

Chorus
If you must fall in love
Don't make it me
Try someone else's heart
Mines all broken up you see
If you must fall in love
Don't make it me
Give someone else a try
I've got no more tears to cry
There's nothing left inside - of me
If you must fall in love Don't make it me

Kiss For Christmas

PRS for Music UK
Verse
No verse inside this Christmas card
Could possibly explain how hard
Surviving is without you here
Each day feels like another year


I'm lost for words what can I write?
Wish you were - coming home tonight
You're far away
And so my darling
I'll just S-A-Y

Chorus
" Send me a kiss for Christmas"
I'm gonna miss you so much
No-one to hold
The nights so cold
It's hard to sleep here on my own
" send me a kiss for Christmas"
That's all i need to keep warm
Until the day
You come back, and then
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go.....again

Verse
Everyone's been
So very kind
They ask about you all the time
They tell me don't forget to call
If I should need their help at all


So don't you worry
I'll be OK
I'm counting days 'til you're home to stay
(just) come back safe
(that's all) I P-R-A-Y


Chorus
" Send me a kiss for Christmas"
I'm gonna miss you so much
No-one to hold
The nights so cold
It's hard to sleep here on my own
" send me a kiss for Christmas"
That's all I need to keep warm
Until the day
You come back, and then
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go.....again

Middle 8
I'm lost for words
what can I write?
Wish you were coming home tonight

Chorus
" Send me a kiss for Christmas"
I'm gonna miss you so much
No-one to hold
The nights so cold
It's hard to sleep here on my own
" send me a kiss for Christmas"
That's all I need to keep warm
Until the day
You come back, and then
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go.....again

Verse 1
Raindrops tapping at the window
Case packed standing by the door
Got to move out to New Boston
Got a job I can't ignore
No easy way to go
I don't wanna give you up……

Chorus
I'm gonna miss you , miss you
You're gonna miss me , miss me
I'm losing my nerve
So hard to walk out the door
I'm gonna miss you , miss you
You're gonna miss me , miss me
It's tearing our hearts apart
but we know the score

Verse 2
Tried so hard it's been a bad year
Got bills to pay no guarantor
So I'll move out to New Boston
No choice our backs against the wall
No easy way to go
I don't wanna give you up……

Chorus
I'm gonna miss you , miss you
You're gonna miss me , miss me
I'm losing my nerve
It's hard to walk out the door
I'm gonna miss you , miss you
You're gonna miss me , miss me
It's tearing our hearts apart
but we know the score

Bridge
Just hold me close never let go
We'll make this work baby you know
Long distance love ain't it tough tho
We'll get by I guess so

Chorus
I'm gonna miss you , miss you
You're gonna miss me , miss me
I'm losing my nerve
It's hard to walk out the door
I'm gonna miss you , miss you
You're gonna miss me , miss me
It's tearing our hearts apart
but we know the score

Repeat Chorus

11-59
© Music and Melody - Chrissy Sykes
Lyrics - Marilyn Oakley


It was the eve before our weddin' took place
60 seconds 'fore the clock struck a new day 
Got a call from my soon to be sister-in-law
Said Charlie's been in a wreck, doesn't look good (at all)

My heart felt like it hit the ocean floor
Could barely breathe when I ran out the door
Yelled this can't be happenin'
Please let this be a bad dream I'm in

Pre-chorus:
Darkness surrounds my heart
The time stamp ... left a scar

Chorus
It was 11:59
when my world turned the colour of the midnight sky
Four numbers branded forever in my mind
When that call came at - 
... 11:59

They had to sit me in a wheelchair
When I spotted his sister's vacant stare
They pushed me into a room where he lay
All I lived for gone in a minute yesterday

My body trembled I wasn't ready for this
My heart numb as I gave him a final kiss
Why baby on the day we're to wed
Might as well be me, cause I sure felt dead

Lift:
Couldn't say good-bye
The whole county heard my cries

Chorus: Repeat

Bridge
Coming here visiting your grave -
I know that you're gone and I'm doing my best,
But 6 feet down is where my love will stay.
And when I take my final breath ...
59 minutes past eleven will be put to rest

Chorus: Repeat

and the answer's never clear 
 
..............when you're standin' way down here.

You've got to let me know.. are you listenin' above take this troubled heart of mine and show me how to love.

'cause every dream I had
.......is gone.   Only you can raise me up to who I need to be so Dear God........ please

Falling Apart
© Chrissy Sykes - Sykes and Sykes Publishing


I know that you've been working late tonight
It's four in the morning and the light's still burning
bright
I'm holding on tight
You say it's alright
But I can't help feel it's falling apart

Each time I try to touch, you pull away
You never ever seem to have that much to say
I'm trying to get through
Are you telling the truth
Cause I can't help feel it's falling apart

I'm feeling down - cause you're never around
You're holding out on me
Why don't you tell me you want out
If there's nothing else left for you
I'm tired of playing wait and see

I'm holding on tight
You say it's alright
But I can't help feel it's falling apart

I know that you've been working late tonight
It's four in the morning and the light's still burning
bright

I'm holding on tight
You say it's alright
But I can't help feel it's falling apart

I'm feeling down - cause you're never around
You're holding out on me
Why don't you tell me you want out
If there's nothing else left for you
I'm tired of plying wait and see
I'm holding on tight
You say it's alright
But I can't help feel it's falling apart

I'm trying to get through
Are you telling the truth
Cause I can't help feel it's breaking my heart
I'm holding on tight
You say it's alright
Cause I can't help feel it's falling apart

The Storm
By Music C.Sykes
Lyrics K.Pierce
Genre: Christian Holiday Song
© 2014 Registered with PRS for Music

My heart is broke
my will is lost
my feet numb
from the cold

I walk alone
through sleeting snow
lost inside,
can't find home.

The drummer boy
he leads the way
he whispers I
must find you Lord,

he says ------your love is true
and you will not turn me away.

So I have come
to meet you now
I'm at your feet.....so worn I lay


(Angel's Chorus: "I lay, I lay I lay
Ale Ale Ale.... luiah...." & alleluiah allululiah...)


Tonight I kneel
before you, King
I rest my weary
soul on you.

All I have to give
is open arms
with heavy hands

........I pray, I pray----------

You lift me up
upon your wings
you raise me high

......and carry me,
Ale------.


(Chorus) " Ale-, Ale-, Ale--luiah
Ale- Ale-  ----Luiah ah ah )


(OUTTRO:)
Tonight I kneel (I kneel)
before you... Lord
I rest my weary head

on you.....

for now I know,
(I know your truth)
as long as I'm with you
I'm safe and sound

you brought me in

........from the storm.
