RECORDING WITH MHMS CHOIR (SORRY FOR THE POOR QUALITY):



WHEN YOU ARE READY TO SING WITHOUT HELP, HERE'S THE PIANO ONLY:


You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
‘Cause they’d fill the open air
and leave teardrops everywhere.
You’d think me rude but I would just stand and stare.

CHORUS:
I’d like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep,
‘cause everything is never as it seems.

‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
from ten thousand lightning bugs
as they tried to teach me how to dance.
A foxtrot above my head.
A sock hop beneath my bed.
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread.

CHORUS:
I’d like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep,
‘cause everything is never as it seems…
when I fall asleep

To ten million fireflies
I’m weird ‘cause I hate goodbyes.
I got misty eyes as they said farewell.
But I’ll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
‘cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar.

CHORUS:
I’d like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep,
‘cause everything is never as it seems…
when I fall asleep.
I’d like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep,
because my dreams are bursting at the seams.



Lean On Me by Bill Withers

CLICK BELOW FOR PRACTICE RECORDING WITH MR. BROWN:



Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show

You just call on me brother when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on


You just call on me brother when you need a hand

We all need somebody to lean on

I just might have a problem that you'd understand

We all need somebody to lean on


If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me

Call Me
Call Me
Call Me
Call Me
Call Me
Call Me
Call Me
Call Me
