I close my eyes and I go back to New Jersey The place where I first opened my eyes Mom is there, she’s washing the dishes Dad sneaks up and hugs her from behind And outside that sweet smell of those pines It’s a warm sunny day and I’m feeling fine Oh New Jersey I remember you just like it’s yesterday Oh New Jersey I wanna ride some waves into your shore My heart is pounding on your door I can close my eyes and I’ll be New Jersey home Boardwalk hikes and tandem bikes in the morning With coffee and bagels and some blueberry pie Oh the worries melt away under that blistering sun Where seagulls dive and seashells hide in blue skies Sandy feet on sandy blankets and our sandy hair Nothing steals the joy of being there Oh New Jersey I remember you just like it’s yesterday Oh New Jersey I wanna ride some waves into your shore My heart is pounding on your door I can close my eyes and I’ll be New Jersey home Now I’m fifteen hundred miles away from you And in my mind I wander back to the people that I knew Those smiling faces of the loved ones who made New Jersey my home Moonlight serenade under the stars Those Tabernacle sounds with all the laughter and guitars The lightening bugs aglow and on parade throughout town Sweet dreams with family all around me Oh New Jersey I remember you just like it’s yesterday Oh New Jersey I wanna ride some waves into your shore Oh my heart is pounding on your door I can close my eyes I'll just close my eyes and I’ll be New Jersey home New Jersey Oh New Jersey Oh, my New Jersey home

Grabbed my tuxedo, my shoes, and my gray cummerbund Rented from my favorite dealer, Howard and Sons I picked up my suitcase, looked around my room one last time It’s gonna be different now I loaded up the minivan, with my mom and my dad My guitar on top, it kept sliding forward, bumpin my head The window down, I catch that ocean breeze, and smell that Jersey pine It’s gonna be different now But I’m more than fine Cause there’s a beauty down the road claimin she’s mine And only twenty more hours of our countdown in time Yeah, I hear the church bells ringin, can’t get you out of my mind It’s gonna be a long, long drive past that Mason-Dixon Line Billy Joel, my trusted friend, playing through my headphones I lean on your lyrics, Brother, to calm my nervous bones We cross the Walt Whitman Bridge, say goodbye one last time Let’s get to Missouri, Dad, to my bride Cause there’s a beauty down the road claiming she’s mine And only twenty more hours of our countdown in time Yeah, I hear the church bells ringin, can’t get you out of my mind It’s gonna be a long, long drive past that Mason-Dixon Line A little more time till we marry, until death do us part Our new life together, I can’t wait for it to start If Virginia is for lovers, then Baby, I found our new home We can settle down in these mountains, yeah, and throw away our phones It’s daydream after daydream, and mile after mile Oh time, keep on tickin’, and Baby I’ll see you in a while Cause there’s a beauty down the road claiming she’s mine And only twenty more hours of our countdown in time Yeah, I hear the church bells ringin’, can’t get you out of my mind It’s gonna be a long, long drive past that Mason-Dixon Line Cause there’s a beauty down the road claimin she’s mine And only twenty more hours of our countdown in time Yeah, I hear the church bells ringin, can’t get you out of my mind It’s gonna be a long, long drive It’s gonna be a long, long drive It’s gonna be a long, long drive past that Mason-Dixon Line

Do you see those stars floating in the sky Flashes of white, glowing in the night A full moon is shining; it’s like a scene from a romance movie Just you and me, in this romantic scenery, tonight Look into my eyes, look deep into my soul Feel what I feel, hold on what I hold Sense my desire to kiss your lips and pull you closer Into me, under this romantic canopy Oh into me, into the mystery, oh and Fall under these stars, into my loving arms Fall under these stars, into where you belong Who told you to run away from love You gotta fight for the truth to rise above I promise I’ll catch your heart tonight And we’ll be lovers who greet the morning light But you gotta fall, fall, fall Into my loving arms tonight I’m standing right here, right here by your side And all that I want is to forever hold you tight I’m yours if you want me Just say the word and I’ll pull you closer Into me, into the mystery, oh and Fall under these stars, into my loving arms Fall under these stars, into where you belong This wall that you’ve built around your heart It’s keeping two lovers needlessly apart It’s time to trust the love I have to give And make this the moment you decide to live But you gotta fall, fall, fall, Into my loving arms tonight Fall…under these stars, into my loving arms Fall…under these stars, into where you belong Who told you to run away from love You gotta fight for the truth to rise above I promise I’ll catch your heart tonight And we’ll be lovers who greet the morning light But you gotta fall, fall, fall You gotta fall, fall, fall Into my loving arms tonight All that I want is to forever hold you tight Just say the word Just say the word

On those late summer nights in June With me on the back porch, staring at the moon She moves in as close as she can I feel her gentle fingers as they weave into my hand The touch of her skin It lights a fire within me Cause she makes my heart come alive She makes my heart come alive In every season of our lives The way that she cares The way that she feels When she looks into my eyes She makes my heart come alive When the autumn rains begin to fall And the turning yellow leaves sing their sad and lonely song She says the words I need to hear Fighting for our love through every tear What would I do Without her love to see me through Cause she makes my heart come alive She makes my heart come alive In every season of our lives The way that she cares The way that she feels When she looks into my eyes She makes my heart come alive Through all the passing years Through all the changing fears She has always stood by my side Through all the lows and highs Through all the tough goodbyes Her love makes my heart come alive Come alive Come alive It’s amazing when a dream comes true When the woman that you love She gives her heart to you She makes my heart come alive In every season of our lives The way that she cares The way that she feels When she looks into my eyes She makes my heart come alive She makes my heart come alive

How can I say I’m okay When you left me all alone, you’ve gone away We were gonna grow old together But that changed I can’t find a reason for this pain Why should anybody suffer this way How can I go on without you When I can’t even face today I’ll never find a love like yours What we shared was once in a lifetime How could anyone love me more I’ll always dream about the way it used to be Oh, in our once in a lifetime I feel I need someone to blame Or something that could possibly explain Why the good life that we lived had to end So very soon I don’t want to forget your touch Or the feeling of loving you this much I’m holding on and I’m never letting go Of you I’ll never find a love like yours What we shared was once in a lifetime How could anyone love me more I’ll always dream about the way it used to be I gotta fight, gotta get up off this floor I gotta move I’ve gotta get up and out that door I’ve gotta eat, gotta drink Gotta breathe, gotta think Gotta live I’ve gotta learn to live again But I’ll never find a love like yours What we shared was once in a lifetime How could anyone love me more I’ll always dream about the way it used to be Oh, in our once in a lifetime In our once in a lifetime In our once in a lifetime In our once in a lifetime
