I have always enjoyed her lyrics. A few of my favorites:

"And I wish all the people I love the most
Could gather in one place,
And know each other and love each other well.
And I wish we could all go camping,
And lay beneath the stars,
And have nothing to do and stories to tell.

We'd sit around the campfire
And we'd make each other laugh,
Remembering when..." Every Minute

"Maybe this was made for me
For lying on my back in the middle of a field
Maybe that's a selfish thought
Or maybe there's a loving God

Maybe I was made this way
To think and to reason and to question and to pray
And I have never prayed a lot
But maybe there's a loving God" Maybe there's a loving God


When I am down and need to cry till morning,

I know just where I am going.

When I'm in need of sweet commiseration

To speak out loud.

Raise a glass to friendship

And to knowing you don't have to go alone.

We'll raise out hearts to share each other's burdens

On this road.

Every burden I have carried,

Every joy--it's understood." Twice as Good (I think I want this played at my wedding)

Anyhow, just sharing some of the wealth. :)
