Wind Beneath My Wings – Bette Midler

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

Hero – Mariah Carey and various artists

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

In The Arms Of An Angel - Sarah McLachlan

In the arms of an Angel fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

Time to Say Goodbye - Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman

Time to say goodbye.
Places that I've never seen or experienced with you.
Now I shall, I'll sail with you upon ships across the seas,
seas that exist no more,
It's time to say goodbye.

Dance with My Father - Luther Vandross

If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
‘Cause I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again

Amazing - Alex Lloyd

And I really didn't want that push today,
No, I really didn't want to end this way.
But the things that seem to bind us,
Are the things we put behind us on this day.

Memory - Barbra Streisand

Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan

The Long and Winding Road - Beatles

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I've seen that road before.
It always leads me here,
Leads me to your door.
