Just in My Reach

Stars are high in the night sky
Keeps me hoping,
Keeps my hopes high,

Something wondrous is in the air,
Something that makes me aware,
Something always for which I care,

Is there something good just in my reach,
Is there something starlike,
A wish to make,
A candle to light,
A prayer to be answered,
A dream coming true,
All just in my reach.

A New Tomorrow

All our hopes,
All our dreams,
Are in a new tomorrow,
We ask God to take away our sorrow,
All our hopes for better things to come,
Are in that distant beating of the drum,
We hear the voices of the past,
We know that soon we will surpass,
Our time on earth is only temporary,
We needn’t be so contrary,
We need a light in the sky,
We need to know the reasons why,
We have our faith in God above,
We have our family,
Whom we love,
All our hopes are invested in a brand new day,
All our dreams will light the way,
All we give is for a new tomorrow
We only have time to borrow.

Turn Off the Bad News

Don’t want to hear CNN,
Just more bad news,
The world about to end,

Don’t want to hear Fox News,
So much babbling,
All of it gives me the blues,

Don’t want to hear MSNBC,
One more depressing report,
Enough to drive you up a tree,

Just turn off the bad news,
Turn on some good old fashioned
Programming like “Bewitched”
So I can laugh,
“Little House on the Prairie”
So I can be inspired,
“Murder She Wrote,
So I can solve a mystery,

Just turn off the bad news,
Don’t want to hear it anymore,
Just want to think happy thoughts,
Good news is what we need more of,
Good news, good thoughts,
Good people, good times.
