I'm helping a friend put together a dvd for her TWIN sisters 50th birthday...

I wonder if anyone of you songwriters can help me find a song for the part when we show the baby pics of the twins... any ideas would be appreciated...

Songs I think may work: Tea for Two
The Way We Were
Happiness Is (from You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown)
A Whole New World (Alladin)
Moon River
Pennies from Heaven


Also, another sister, died two years ago from ovarian cancer... one section will be dedicated to her and this is a tough one in terms of music... The parents are still alive... I love Eva Cassidy's .. I know you by Heart, but it may be too emotional ... Also, I Will Always Love You ... but not the Whitney Houston version.. I also thought of "My Prayer" by either Celine Dion and Bocelli or Josh Groban ... Any ideas for this one?

Thanks, Cassie

There's a beautiful (old) song by Barbara Streisand that might be nice. It's called, "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?" Here are the lyrics:

What are you doing the rest of your life?
North and south and east and west of your life?
I have only one request of your life
That you spend it all with me.
All the seasons and the times of your days.
All the nickels and the dimes of your days.
Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days.
All begin and end with me.
I want to see your face,
In every kind of light,
In fields of gold and
Forests of the night;
And when you stand before
The candles on a cake.
Oh let me be the one to hear
The silent wish you make.
Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes
In the world of love you keep in your eyes,
Iíll awaken whatís asleep in your eyes,
It may take a kiss or two..
Through all of my life..
Summer, winter, spring and fall of my life,
All I ever will recall of my life
Is all of my life with you.

Linda, thank you so much. I just ordered two Streisand CD's ... I'm hoping this is on one of them... Although I thought of this song, I hadn't added it to the list of possiblities... after reading the lyrics, I will now. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply to my post and writing out the lyrics!! THANK YOU!!!!

My pleasure! And if it's not on those cds, you can find it online at the iTunes store and download it for just 99 cents. :)
