Love Remains
Written by:Tom Douglass and Jim Daddario
From Collin Raye’s album: “I Think About You”
Second Verse Adapted for Jack O’Neill


We are born one fine day
Children of God on our way
Mama smiles daddy cries
Miracle before their eyes
They protect us til’ we’re of age
Through it all love remains


Boy moves out and on his own
Seeks wild places to call his home
He lives to love and loves to live
And to each moment his all he gives
He shares joy and he shares pain
Through it all love remains


Kingdoms come and go they don’t last
Before you know the future is the past
In spite of what’s been lost
Or what’s been gained
We are living proof that love remains


I don’t know what we’ll do
On this earth without you
We all live we all die
But the end is not goodby
The sun comes up, and seasons change
But through it all, love remains.
An eternal burning flame,
hope lives on, and love remains

On the Loose
Written by:  Unknown

Verse 5 Written in Honor of Jack O’Neill

1. Have you ever seen a sunrise turn the sky completely
Have you slept beneath the moon and stars, a pine bough
for your bed
Can you sit and talk with friends, although no word is ever
Then you’re just like me and you’ve been on the loose.
On the loose to climb a mountain,
On the loose where I am free.
On the loose to live my life, the way I think my life should
For I only have a moment and a whole world left to see.
I’ll be searching for tomorrow on the loose.

2. There’s a trail that I’ll be hiking just to see where it might
Many places yet to visit, many people yet to know,
So in following in my dreams, I will live and I will grow,
On a trail that’s waiting out there on the loose.

3. So in search of love and laughter, I’ll be travelin’ across
this land
Never sure of where I’m going, for I haven’t any plan,
So in time when you are ready, come and join me, take my
And together we will share life on the loose.

4. As I sit and watch the sunset and the daylight slowly
I’ll be thinking about tomorrows, about the friendships we
have made.
I will value them for always and I hope you’ll do the same,
And forever we’ll explore life on the loose.

5. In the moments left ahead of us, we will think of you this
Remembering your voice and smile, for it seems like
That we marveled at your freedom, and you showed us
how to play
So that we might come together on the loose.
