MUSIC SAVED ME When I was young, my senses brought pleasure Life was a garden, memories I treasure But I lost my passion as years wore on Too busy to notice my senses were gone I was so sad; pain left a hole ‘Til noise turned to music and rescued my soul Music inspired, while noise was empty When noise turned to music It saved me When I was young, I loved my eyesight Colors and sounds filled me with delight But over time color turned gray And sound became noise all through my day I was so sad; pain left a hole ‘Til noise turned to music and rescued my soul Music inspired, while noise was empty When noise turned to music It saved me When I was young, dreams I could touch I tasted and savored; I loved life so much I missed my senses when they slipped away But the magic returned when music would play I was so sad; pain left a hole ‘Til noise turned to music and rescued my soul Music inspired, while noise was empty When noise turned to music it saved me When noise turned to music it saved me

YOU ARE MY WINGS I never wanted to fly alone, but you’ve sent me soaring upon a love, I have never known I’ll love you in air; when we’re down to earth Our lives we will share Today we’re flying to the sun You are my wings, my companion Above the earth we are like one in the heavens We’re sailing those pink clouds in the sky Reflected rainbow in your eye You know how I love to fly Way up above, I’m in love yes, I’m in love I never dreamed it’d happen to me, but I know that we can’t fly this high for eternity If we shed out wings, we’ll walk together and face what our future brings Today we’re flying to the sun You are my wings, my companion Above the earth we are like one in the heavens We’re sailing those pink clouds in the sky Reflected rainbow in your eye You know how I love to fly Way up above, I’m in love The world is ours we’re touching all the stars My heart’s taken flight Love glows through the night Now we’re flying to the sun You are my wings, my companion Above the earth we are like one In the heavens We’re sailing those pink clouds in the sky Reflected rainbow in your eye You know how I love to fly, way up above You know I always wanted to fly Way up above, I’m in love

THE MEMORY OF LOVE How can I tell you, I’m sad you’re leaving me? I miss the way you used to be I’ve lost you somewhere I’m lonely and I cannot share I can’t tell you, so instead I just pretend it’s easier that way than to face the end I’ve tried so hard to accept as you fade away, I’ve slowly wept I feel, I sense, there’s so much fear I try to be brave, as you disappear from here I cannot see you, you’ve become transparent I ache and wonder where you went I know you can’t hear my cries with deaf ears and vacant eyes I pray, I wish, you were aware but when I feel despair the memory of love is there Even though you’re not aware the memory of love is always there
4.
HOW WE DON’T CARE What’s new with you? It’s been awhile since you’ve told me I have nothing left to say It might be too late to give it a try ‘cause now you can’t look me in the eye I’m doing fine Although I’m smiling Inside it isn’t quite the same I can’t take much more of hiding these tears it seems my disguise is not what it appears We try to show how we don’t care How we don’t feel, how we don’t share And it’s really nothing new It just gets harder every time to say I love you Sometimes I feel like this time it’s over Will this be just a passing storm? Somehow I wonder if after the rain Can our love survive this pain? So what’s on your mind? Will you cry when you leave me? Or is it that I’m just crying alone? I thought that our love I could always count on Did we wake up to find love has gone? We try to show how we don’t care How we don’t feel, how we don’t share And it’s really nothing new It just gets harder every time to say I love you It just gets harder every time to say I love you

TAKE ME AWAY I’m on a road; I’ve traveled so far Not sure where I am or where you are I long to escape when I go to sleep But my dreams are so vivid; they make me weep I know you are gone I just can’t move on Take me away to a lovely day Where I’m holding you again It’s hard to face I’m crying while I’m dreaming of seeing you someday But in my dreams you take me away For the first time I’m on my own Everything’s changed; all that I’ve known I wanted to leave my sadness behind But memories of us fill up my mind I know you are gone I just can’t move on Take me away to a lovely day Where I’m holding you again It’s hard to face I’m crying while I’m dreaming of seeing you someday But in my dreams you take me away Take me away to a lovely day Where I’m holding you again It’s hard to face that you’re gone forever Every night I pray In my dreams you’ll take me away
6.
THE UNKNOWN I go through my day to places that heal me I cannot stay, you no longer feel me My words will stun you, ‘cause I’ve begun to Leave you behind; I escape in my mind My tears I hide when you are near me I cry inside where you can’t hear me I’ve watched you brood; avoid your mood There’s no connection without affection I run from you; don’t know where to The touch you withhold leaves me cold That’s when I withdrew I feel so alone; your heart is like stone I lie awake and feel my heart break I’m ready to face the unknown I’ve known you so long I must alert you This feels so wrong I hate to hurt you With all this pain, I can’t remain You might not miss me, ‘cause you never kiss me I run from you; don’t know where to The touch you withhold leaves me cold I’ve stopped loving you For years I stayed, ‘cause I was afraid don’t even know where I will go But I am ready The touch I crave has made me so brave I run from you; don’t know where to I lie awake and feel my heart break I’m ready to live on my own I’ll face the unknown
7.
MY DREAM Like the sky after sunset my dream still glows A river of warmth, through my body it flows Filling my soul, it makes me whole Helping me cope, my dream gives me hope Like shade in the summer, a misty spring rain My dream is so soothing; it heals all my pain Making me sure, then I'm secure I may be low, but I’ll never let go My dream it feels so certain; I wait behind a curtain One day I’ll face the world’s embrace And the message I’ll bring with joy when I sing My dream is where I'm going; it’s all about my knowing With courage I grew and I know it’s true My dream will get me through Like a rosebud’s petals, my dream will bloom Surrounding my heart with its sweet perfume I may be stressed; but my dream has me blessed One day I see I'm soaring free My dream it feels so certain; I wait behind a curtain One day I’ll face the world’s embrace And the message I’ll bring with joy when I sing My dream is where I'm going; it’s all about my knowing With courage I grew and I know it’s true My dream will get me through
8.
RETREAT Retreat is where I go when I am sad All my tears let me know I long for you and miss you so Retreat is my escape from the world I withdraw and suddenly I feel you surround me At those times, I’d wish you were near and then, you’d appear but you were only in my mind only in my mind you were only in my mind Retreat is when a song soothes my soul A melody fills my heart reminding me we’re not apart Retreat is where I find peacefulness My music has begun to be my true companion At those times, I’d wish you were near and then, you’d appear but you were only in my mind only in my mind you were only in my mind only in my mind
9.
ANGEL IN THE SKY My love for you grows over time with every song and every rhyme I dream about your sweet embrace your sparkling eyes; your beautiful face You are my angel in the sky, like a butterfly you flew away and couldn’t stay we had to say goodbye I still cry, you must know I miss you so my angel in the sky you’re my angel in the sky Your precious smile glows in my mind you uplift; you are my gift And when I die; you’ll hold my hand my lovely light, just not in sight You are my angel in the sky, like a butterfly you flew away and couldn’t stay we had to say goodbye I still cry, so you must know I miss you so my angel Gone for years and I still cry don't you know, my love just didn’t die You are my angel in the sky, like a butterfly you flew away and couldn’t stay we had to say goodbye I still cry, so you must know I miss you so my angel Gone for years and I still cry my angel in the sky
10.
IN THE PAST I look back, amazed at where I am today There were times I almost gave up Painful memories are in my past I just didn’t know then I’d live with joy again I look ahead, my dreams are right in front of me What threw me down gave me my strength I’ve kept my smile through it all I allowed myself to feel and learned that I could heal In the past are things I could regret What I suffered through I can’t forget Pain that made me cry Gave me wings to fly My journey is not about where I will go Each day, I treasure my life I’ve left behind the pain and chains Every tragedy didn’t imprison me In the past are things I could regret I know how love once felt I can’t forget The strength to say goodbye Gave me wings to fly Once I felt hopeless and so alone Now I’m soaring – I have flown In the past are things I could regret I know how love once felt I can’t forget Pain that made me cry gave me wings to fly Gave me wings to fly

about

Judy Unger Los Angeles, California

I have been an artist all of her life. Although I played classical guitar in college, I left music behind when I was 21. 30 years later, I began writing songs to help me cope with the challenges in my life. Many of my songs are dedicated to my son, Jason, who died in 1992. I love to inspire hope of healing with my music, because my songs have certainly healed me of any pain. ... more
