River

Mitchell

 

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on


But It don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry, I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle

I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye
I made my baby say goodbye


It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace

 

Both Sides Now

Mitchell

 

Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere, I've looked at cloud that way
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone
So many things i would have done but clouds got in my way

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall.
I really don't know clouds at all.

Moons and junes and ferries wheels, the dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real ; I've looked at love that way
But now it's just another show. you leave them laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know, don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud

To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds

 I've looked at life that way
But now old friends are acting strange,

They shake their heads, they say
I've changed
Something's lost but something's gained in living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
Really don't know life at all...at all

 

Alfie

Bacharach & David / Bonno

 

What's it all about ?
Alfie

Is it just for the moment we live ?
What's it all about ?

When you sort it out ?
Alfie

Are we meant to take more than we give
Or are we meant to be kind
And if only fools are kind
Alfie

Then I guess
It is wise to be cruel
And if life belongs
Only to the strong
Alfie

What will you lend on
An old golden rule
As sure as I believe
There's a heaven above
Alfie

I know there's something much more
Something even non believers
Can believe in ?
I believe in love

Alfie
Without true love you just exist
Alfie
Until you find the love you've missed
You're nothing

When you walk let your heart lead the way
And you'll find love any day
Alfie, Alfie, Alfie

 

Bewitched, bothered and betwildered

Rodgers/Hart

 

Heīs a fool and donīt I know it
But a fool can have her charms.
Iīm in love and donīt I show it,
like a babe in arms.
Loveīs the same old situation, lately I have not slept a win,
since this crazy situation has me on the blink.
Iīm wild again, beguiled again,
a whimpering, simpering child again,

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
Couldnīt sleep, wouldnīt sleep,
when love came and told me I shouldnīt sleep,
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.

I lost my heart, but what of it ? He is cold, I agree.
He might laugh, but I love it, although the laugh's on me
Iīll sing to him, bring spring to him, and long for the day when Iīll cling to him

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.

CRAZY

Nelson

 

Crazy
Crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy
Crazy for feeling so blue

I know
You'd love me as long as you wanted
Then someday
Leave me for somebody new

Worry
Why do I let myself worry ?
Wondering
What in the world did I do ?

I'm Crazy
For thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for crying
I'm crazy for trying

I'm crazy for love in you

I'm Crazy
For thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for crying
I'm crazy for trying

And I'm crazy for love in you

 

 

Close To You

Bacharach & David

 

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair

Of gold, and starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you


Wind Beneath My Wings

Henley & Silbar

 

I Must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You've content to let me shine, to away....
You always walked a step behind

So, I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength
Beautiful face without a name, for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

You ever know that you're my hero,
And everything I'd like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle
You  are the wind beneath my wings


It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know I know the truth, cos' I know it
I would be nothing without you

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

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

Cos' You  are the wind beneath my wings

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away against my sky

So I almost touch my sky

Thank u, Thank u ,

thanks god for you're the wind beneath my wind.

 

Do you know (theme for Mahagony)

Masser / Goffin

 

Do you know where you're going to ?
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to ?
Do you know ?

Do you get ?
What you're hoping for ?
When you look behind you ?
There's no open door
What are you hoping for ?
Do you know ?

Once we were standing still in time
Chasing the fantasies
That filled our minds
You knew how I loved you
But my spirit was free
Laughing at the questions
That you once asked of me

Do you know where you're going to ?
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to ?
Do you know ?

Do you get ?
What you're hoping for ?
When you look behind you ?
There's no open door
What are you hoping for ?
Do you know ?
Now looking back at all we've planned
We let so many dreams
To  slip through our hands
Why must we wait so long
Before we'll see
How sad the answers
To those questions can be

Do you know where you're going to do ?
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to ?
Do you know ?

Do you get
What you're hoping for
When you look behind you
There's no open door
What are you hoping for ?
Do you know... ?

Do you know... ?

Do you know... ?

Do you know... ?

Do you know... ?

 

The Man With the Child In His Eyes

Bush

 

I hear him, before I go to sleep
And focus on the day thats been

I realise he's there,
When I turn the light off and turn over

Nobody knows about my man
They think he's lost on some horizon
And suddenly I find myself
Listening to a man I've never known before

Telling me about the sea
All his love, till eternity

Ooh, he's here again
The Man With The Child In His Eyes
Ooh, he's here again
The Man With The Child In His Eyes

He's very understanding
And he's so aware of all my situations
And when I stay up late
He's always waiting, but I feel him hesitate

Oh, I'm so worried about my love.
They say, no, no, it won't last forever
And here I am again, my girl
Wondering what on earth I'm doing here.
Maybe he doesn't love me
I just took a trip on my love for him

Refrain

In his eyes, In his eyes...

 

Why

Lennox

 

How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done
But when I start to try to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
Hey, this kind of trouble's only just begun

I tell myself too many times
Why don't you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut
That's why it hurts so bad to hear the words
That keep on falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Tell me

Why.....

Tell me why..., why...why...


I may be mad
I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you're thinking

And I've heard it said too many times
That you'd be better off
Besides
Why can't you see this boat is sinking,

Let's go down to the water's edge
And we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid

But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out turning inside out

Tell me
Why
Tell me
Why

This is the book I never read
These are the words I never said
This is the path I'll never tread
These are the dreams I'll dream instead
This is the joy that's seldom spread
These are the tears
The tears we shed
This is the fear
This is the dread
These are the contents of my head
And these are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
And this is how I feel
Do you know how I feel ?
Cause I don't think you know how I feel
I don't think you know
I don't think you know

Why...why..why

 

Angel

MacChalan

 

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There's always one reason
To feel not good enough
And its hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh, beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

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 the Angel
May you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lie
That you make up for all that you lack
It don't make no difference
Escaping one last time
It's easier to believe in this sweet madness

This glorious sadness gives me to my knees

Refrain
