    I just love that song. The words are so beautiful. You did a great job once again. The pictures are stunning! It won`t be too long and you will be heading up that long twisted driveway again! Hopefully you will have a sunny day this time! Super work Rosanne...

    To Where You Are
    ( By Josh Groban )



    Who can say for certain
    Maybe you're still here
    I feel you all around me
    Your memory's so clear

    Deep in the stillness
    I can hear you speak
    You'r still an inspiration
    Can it be
    That you are mine
    Forever love
    And you are watching over me from up above

    Fly me up to where you are
    Beyond the distant star
    I wish upon tonight
    To see you smile
    If only for awhile
    to know you're there
    A breath away's not far
    To where you are
    Are you gently sleeping
    Here inside my dreams
    And isn't faith believing
    All powers can't be seen
    As my heart holds you
    Just one beat away
    I cherish all you gave me
    Everyday
    Cause you are mine
    Forever love
    Watching me from up above
    And I believe
    That angels breathe
    And that love will live on and never leave

    Fly me up to where you are
    Beyond the distant star
    I wish upon tonight
    To see you smile
    If only for awhile
    To know you're there
    A breath away's not far
    To where you are
    I know you're there
    A breath away's not far
    To where you are.

    (By Josh Groban )
    (Lyrics were composed by Linda Thompson)
    (Music by Richard Marx)

    I never knew Linda Thompson wrote this song! Wow, I bet it was written with Elvis in mind. That makes it even more sentimental. Thanks for that information.

    WOW!! I had forgotten that Linda Thompson did these lyrics!!! Is this the song she won a Grammy for? And the music was done by Richard Marx? I always liked him...especially "Endless Summer Nights". What other lyrics has Linda Thompson done?
    THANK YOU to everyone for your kind comments!

    Thank you miss clawdy. here are some lyrics that linda has done.

    In the 1980’s Linda began to successfully add another title to her name—that of songwriter. She has penned some of the most poignant lyrics of the last few decades, sung by some of the biggest stars in the recording industry including; Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole, Vanessa Williams, Leann Rimes and many, many more. Lindas lyrics have also been recorded by such diverse artists as The Backstreet Boys, Kenny Rogers, Air Supply, Clay Aiken, Kelly Clarkson, Aaron Neville, Art Garfunkcle, Patty LaBelle, and even the Russian Red Army Choir.



    Thompson’s early songwriting success came with such hit songs as No Explanation sung by Peter Cetera for the triple platinum Pretty Woman Soundtrack. She soon became a favorite of filmmakers, asked to collaborate on countless motion picture soundtracks for blockbusters like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Eraser, Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” and Clint Eastwood’s “True Crime—but perhaps her most memorable motion picture contribution came when she wrote the Grammy and Academy Award nominated, “I Have Nothing,” sung by Whitney Houston on the “Bodyguard” Soundtrack, which has sold more than 30 million copies.

    I remember Linda saying in interviews like on Larry King that Elvis wanted to put her poems to music and record some of them but she told him no because she felt they were to personal. I think that's a shame as her lyrics could have been turned into some pretty good ballads for Elvis to record.

    It's fascinating to see a picture of him which is that candid.
