Lovin' You-Alicia Keys

If I gave you forever
Would you take care of me (a oo)
Would you take me for granted
On the way

Those wonderful things that you do
They got me feelin'
In love with you
In love with you
That loving you is easy
Comes so naturally
Loving you is easy

I would give you laughter
Oh
And so much more than that
Oh yes I would (a oo)
Anything that you're after
I would climb the highest mountain to bring it back

Those wonderful things that you do
They got me feelin'
In love with you

Comes so naturally
Loving you is easy

Caged Bird-Alicia Keys

Right now I feel like a bird
Caged without a key
Everyone comes to stare at me
With so much joy and rivalry
They din't know how I feel inside
Through my smile I cry
They don't know what they're doin' to me
Keeping me from flyin'
That's why I say that
I know why the caged bird sings
Only joy comes from song
She's so rare and beautiful to others
Why not just set her free
So she can
Fly, fly, fly
Spreadin her wings and her song
Let her
Fly, fly fly
For the whole world to see
She's like caged bird
Fly, fly
Ooh just let her fly
Just let her fly
Just let her fly
Spread the wings
Spread the beauty

Why Do I Feel So Sad?-Alicia Keys

Friends we've been for so long
Now true colors are showing
Makes me wanna cry oh yes it does
Cuz I had to say goodbye

By now I should know
That in time things would change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

How can I adjust
To the way that things are going
It's killing me slowly
Oh I just want it to be how it used to be

Cuz I wish that I could stay
But in time things must change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

You cannot hide the way you feel inside I realize
Your actions speak much louder than words
So tell me why oh

By now I should know that
That in time things would change
So it shouldn't be it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

By now I should know
That in time things must change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

By now by now I should know
That in time things must grow
And I had to leave you behind
So why do I feel so sad
If it couldn't be that bad
Tell me why

By now I should know
That in time things would change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

Never Felt This Way (Interlude)-Alicia Keys

ahhhh...
ahhhhhhhh...

There will never come a day
You will ever hear me say
That I want
Or need to be without you
I wanna give my all

Baby just hold me
Simply control me
Because your arms, they keep away the lonelies
When I look into your eyes
Then I realize
All I need is you in my life
All I need is you in my life

Cause I never felt this way about lovin ...Nooooo
Never felt so good..baby
Never felt this way about love
And it feels so good

Mr. Man-Alicia Keys

[Jimmy Cozier]
Somethin' about the way you smiled at me juss drove me wild
Wish I could know if your alone, don't wanna cramp your style
But I cannot deny the feel that I feel when I look straight into your eyes
Feel my heart beating fast for a challenge may arise

I wanna know if you feel the way I do (I do)
I wanna know if theres a chance for me and you (and you)
If theres no way, meet at the bar and you say can't (you can't)
Cuz I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be. I don't wanna be
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man,
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man, unfair

[Verse 2:]
[Alicia Keys]
Like the way you've given me attention through the nite
Maybe I've had too much remy, my man's right by my side
Everytime I catch you watchin' me I feel somethin' down my spine
I'll play the game, it's just for fun and only for tonite

I wanna know what makes you feel the way you do (you do)
I think you hopin' theres a chance for me and you (and you)
Should I meet you at the bar and say we can't? (we can't)
Cause i don't wanna be, i don't wanna be, i don't wanna be
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man,
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man

[Bridge:]
[Alicia]
I know all you wanna know is answers
[Jimmy]
Cuz you could give me what I need
[Alicia]
We both know that we're attracted
Should we let our desires lead?

I wanna know if you feel the way I do (I do)
I wanna know if theres a chance for me and you (and you)
Cuz I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be. I don't wanna be
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man,
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man, unfair

I wanna know what makes you feel the way you do (you do)
I think you hopin' theres a chance for me and you (and you)
Should I meet you at the bar and say we can't? (we can't)
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man,
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr. Man

The Life-Alicia Keys

Everyday I realize that this might be the last day of my life
Walking down the street I find that I'm coming closer and closer to losing my mind
'Cause when it rains, it pours
Isn't life worth more? I don't even know what I'm hustlin' for
You've gotta do what you gotta do just to make it through
All the hard times that's going to face you

This is the life, trying to survive
This is the life, trying to survive

Living will always be a struggle looking for someone to love you
Looking back at single horrors, this madness makes me want to hide
Slowly, internally, I'm dying
Pillow case is wet from all my crying
There is nothing more for me to live for
Take me away, I can't live that life no more

This is the life, trying to survive
This is the life, trying to survive

This is the life, trying to survive
This is the life, trying to survive

This is the life, trying to survive
This is the life, trying to survive

I'm just trying to get over

Goodbye-Alicia Keys

Mhmn bye bye

How do you love someone
That hurts you oh so bad
With intentions good
Was all he ever had

But how do I let go when I've
Loved him for so long and I've
Given him all that I could
Maybe love is a hopeless crime
Giving up what seems your lifetime
What went wrong with something once so good

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

I know now I was naïve
Never knew where this would lead
And I'm not trying to take away
From the good man that he is

But how do I let go when I've
Loved him for so long and I've
Given him all that I could
Was it something wrong that we did
Because others infiltrated
What went wrong with something once so good

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

Is this the end are you sure
How should you know when you've never been here before
It's so hard to just let go
When this is the one and only love I've ever known

So how do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

Make love tenderly to last and last

Not just dough but to show that you know she is worth your time
You will lose if you chose to refuse to put her first
She will and she can find a man who knows her worth

And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
And a real woman knows a real man always comes first

And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
And a real woman knows a real man always comes first
And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

Troubles-Alicia Keys

Yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah
Dear Lord can you take it away? (Oooh)
This pain in my heart that follows me by day
And at night it stalks me like the shadows on my wall (Mmmmm)
Oh my goodness

[chorus:]
Feels like the world is closin' on me
Feels like my dreams will never come to me
I keep on slippin' deeper into myself
And I'm scared, so scared

If you're troubled, you just gotta let it go
If you're worried baby, you just gotta let it go
All your hustles aint for nothing, you just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby, all you do is let it go

Why does it feel that my mind is constantly trying to pull me down
I can't seem to get away
Continous mistakes I know I've made before
How long will I feel so out of place

How Come You Don't Call Me-Alicia Keys

But all I wanna know is baby
If what we had was good...

I keep your picture beside my bed (mmm)

Always thought you'd be by my side papa now you're gone
(And I'm not tryin' hear that sh*t)

What I wanna know baby

Why you wanna go and break my heart

Baby, silly for me to feel this way about you and her
Cuz I know she's been such a good friend

And I know she's a friend

You said that she's one well to see
How deep you're in love with me
And intentions were not to get inbetween
But I see possibilites

Short Sweet Ride-Alan Jackson

I could see it coming from a mile away,
A heartache looking for a place to stay.
But I couldn't resist her and I couldn't be cool,
The Lord made a woman to make a man a fool.

[Chorus:]
It's an age old story but it still holds true,
There ain't no ending to what a man won't do.
He'll loves some woman till he goes insane,
It's a short sweet ride on a runaway train.

I was drunk and crazy by her sweet perfume,
But I knew stone sober I was being used.
Now, the heartache lingers like a cheap cologne,
She took all she wanted and she was gone.

[Chorus:]
Well, It's an age old story but it still holds true,
There ain't no ending to what a man won't do.
He'll loves some woman till he goes insane,
It's a short sweet ride on a runaway train.

It was almost worth it for the time we spent,
'Cause there ain't no future in a heart for rent.
Still she taught me something 'bout the facts of life,
That love cuts quicker than a switch- blade knife.

[Chorus:]
It's an age old story but it still holds true,
There ain't no ending to what a man won't do.
He'll loves some woman till he goes insane,
It's a short sweet ride on a runaway train.

[Chorus:]
It's an age old story but it still holds true,
There ain't no ending to what a man won't do.
He'll loves some woman till he goes insane,
It's a short sweet ride on a runaway train.

A short sweet ride on a runaway train...

Home-Alan Jackson

In small town down in Georgia
Over 40 years ago
Her maiden name was Musik
Until she met that Jackson boy

They married young like folks did then
Not a penny to their name
They believed the one you vowed to love
Should always stay the same

And on the land his daddy gave him
A foundation underway
For a love to last forever
Or until their dying day

They built a bond that's strong enough
To stand the test a time
And a place for us to turn to
When our lives were in bind

And they made their house from a tool shed
Grandaddy rolled out on two logs
And they built walls all around it
And they made that house a home

And they taught us 'bout good living
And taught us right from wrong
Lord, there'll never be another place
In this world that I'll call home

My mama raised five children
Four girls, and there was me
She found her strength in faith of God
And a love of family

She never had a social life
Home was all she knew
Except the time she took a job
To pay a bill or two

And my daddy skinned his knuckles
On the cars that he repaired
He never earned much money
But he gave us all he had

He never made the front page
But he did the best he could
Folks drove the cars from miles around
And let 'em look underneath the hood

And they made their house from a tool shed
Grandaddy rolled out on two logs
And they built walls all around it
And they made that house a home

And they taught us 'bout good living
And taught us right from wrong
Lord, there'll never be another place
In this world that I'll call home

There'll never be another place
In this world that I'll call home

Dog River Blues-Alan Jackson

Well I first kissed you on a hollow log
Down by the river they call the Dog
We fell in love and we vowed that day
Like the flow of the river our love won't change
Well, we married that spring and we built a house
On the bank of the river where the rock juts out
Now the river's still here but you're long gone
You left me and the river here all alone

I got the Dog River blues
I've walked holes in both my shoes
Now I still got the river but I ain't got you
I got the Dog River blues

Well the rain came down and the river rose up
Filled up the cab on my pickup truck
It came in the house and down the hall
And washed your picture right off the wall

I got the Dog River blues
I've walked holes in both my shoes
Now I still got the river but I ain't got you
I got the Dog River blues

Well, my heart still yearns and the river still rolls
And I pray someday it'll bring you home
If you change your mind honey I'll be here
Waiting on the banks of that ole Dog River

I got the Dog River blues
I've walked holes in both my shoes
Now I still got the river but I ain't got you
I got the Dog River blues

I got the Dog River blues
I've walked holes in both my shoes
Now I still got the river but I ain't got you
I got the Dog River blues

For I still got the river but I ain't got you
I got the Dog River blues...

I'd Love You All Over Again-Alan Jackson

Has it been ten years
Since we said "I do"
I've always heard marriage
Made one seem like two
But you're looking better
Than you did back then
You still make this old heart give in

[Chorus:]
And if I had it to do all over
I'd do it all over again
If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin
I'd love you all over again

The preacher man said
"Til death do us part"
That seemed like forever
To a young man's heart
Now the days seem much shorter
The longer we love
And the memories just keep adding up

[Chorus:]
And if I had it to do all over
I'd still do it all over again
If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin
I'd love you all over again

If tomorrow I found
One more chance to begin
I'd love you all over again...

She Don't Get The Blues-Alan Jackson

Well she puts her dancing shoes on every night
And comes alive there in the smoke
Beneath them neon lights
And she don't like those hurtin' songs
'Cause she's already lived 'em
She don't get the blues, she gives 'em

Well she checks her broken heart there at the door
She ain't looking for romance,
She's danced that dance before
Well I pity the next poor fool
That gets caught up in her rhythm
'Cause she don't get the blues, she gives 'em

She's been on the losing end of love too many times
And she ain't gonna go for anything you've got in mind
So before you start let me impart
These few words of wisdom
She don't get the blues, she gives 'em

She's been on the losing end of love too many times
And she ain't gonna go for anything you've got in mind
So before you start let me impart
These few words of wisdom
She don't get the blues, she gives 'em

No, she don't get the blues, Lord she gives 'em...

Chasin' That Neon Rainbow-Alan Jackson

Daddy won a radio
He tuned it to a country show
I was rocking in the cradle to the crying of a steel guitar
Mama used to sing to me
She taught me that sweet harmony
Now she worries cause she never thought
I'd really ever take it this far
Singin' in the bars

[CHORUS:]
And chasin' that neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dream
Cause all I've ever wanted
Is to pick this guitar and sing
It's time to be somebody
Just wanna be heard and sing
I'm chasin' that neon rainbow
Livin' that honky tonk dream

And it was at a coffee cup
Five pickers and an old Dodge truck
Headin' down to Houston for a show on Saturday night
This overhead is killing me
Half the time I sing for free
When the crowd's into it, lord,
It makes this thing I'm doing seem right
Standing in the spotlight

[CHORUS]

Now daddy's got a radio
He won it thirty years ago
He said; son I just know
We're gonna hear you singin' on it some day
I made it up to music row
Lordy, don't the wheels turn slow
Still I wouldn't trade a minute
I wouldn't have it any other way
Just show me to the stage

[CHORUS]

Wanted-Alan Jackson

Excuse me,
Ma'am can you help me.
I need to place an ad with you today.

No ma'am,
tomorrow may be too late.
I'd like to have it started right away.

What's that.
No this is personal.
I'm not buying or selling anything.
Yes ma'am.
I know just what to say.
I wrote it down,
This is how it should read.

Wanted!
One good hearted woman
to forgive inperfections
in the man that she loves.

Wanted!
Just one chance to tell her
how much he still loves her
he can't be sorry enough.

What's that.
No that's all I want to say
I just hope these few lines will get to her.
Yes ma'am.
She means everything.
I hope she comes back
When she reads these words.

Wanted!
One good hearted woman
to forgive inperfections
in the man that she loves.

Wanted!
Just one chance to tell her
how much he still loves her
he can't be sorry enough.

Wanted!

Blue Blooded Woman-Alan Jackson

She loves a violin, I love a fiddle
We go separate ways but we meet in the middle
Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand
A blue blooded woman and a redneck man

The lady I love, loves silk and satin
She was raised uptown with a silver spoon
Well, I was born on a farm just south of Jackson
We had an old Ford tractor and a country moon

She loves a violin, I love a fiddle
We go separate ways but we meet in the middle
Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand
A blue blooded woman and a redneck man

She's Saks Fifth Avenue perfection
Caviar and dignified
Well, I live my life in Wal Mart fashion
And I like my sushi southern fried

She loves a violin, I love a fiddle
We go separate ways but we meet in the middle
Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand
A blue blooded woman and a redneck man

She loves a violin, I love a fiddle
We go separate ways but we meet in the middle
Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand
A blue blooded woman and a redneck man

She's a blue blooded woman, I'm a redneck man...

Here In The Real World-Alan Jackson

Cowboys don't cry, and heroes don't die
Good always wins, again and again
And love is a sweet dream, that always comes true
Oh if life were like the movies, I'd never be blue

But here in the real world, it's not that easy at all
'Cause when hearts get broken, it's real tears that fall
And darlin' it's sad but true, but the one thing I've learned from you
Is how the boy don't always get the girl, here in the real world

I gave you my love, but that wasn't enough
To hold your heart, when times got rough
And tonight on that silver screen, it'll end like it should
Two lovers will make it through, like I hoped we would

But here in the real world, it's not that easy at all
'Cause when hearts get broken, it's real tears that fall
And darlin' it's sad but true, but the one thing I've learned from you
Is how the boy don't always get the girl, here in the real world

Ace Of Hearts-Alan Jackson

Love's a gamble every heart will take
You roll the dice in hopes that it won't break
One night I bet on your blue eyes and took a chance
And I won a whole lot more than one night of romance

[Chorus:]
I held the ace of hearts that night in the dark
How lucky can one man be
I hold a winning hand
Anyway life deals the cards
No way to lose 'cause I got you
My ace of hearts.

Love's a numbered wheel you have to spin
There's no need for me to spin again
Cause loving you is paying off more than I knew
I took a little risk and hit it big with you

[Chorus:]
I held the ace of hearts that night in the dark
How lucky can one man be
I hold a winning hand
Anyway life deals the cards
No way to lose 'cause I got you
My ace of hearts.

[Chorus:]
I held the ace of hearts that night in the dark
How lucky can one man be
I hold a winning hand
Anyway life deals the cards
No way to lose 'cause I got you
My ace of hearts.

I'm gonna hold on to
My ace of hearts...

Empty Pages-Air Supply

When you're out in front and your life is unsure
What have you got goin' for you after every road you turn
It's magic when you tell me and run your fingers through my hair
I don't need your persuasion, cos I'm already there
I've just read it through and I said to myself
That's not really you, I'll keep myself to myself
It's magic when you tell me, and write the words I want to see
When I reach the last line, it's just empty for me
I've been learning so long, about the things you do
I've been learning so long about you, about you

Empty pages I've read you all through
Empty pages filled with spaces I fell in and I fell in
Empty pages I've read you all through
Empty pages filled with spaces I fell in and I fell in.

I Don't Believe You-Air Supply

Who are we to say who we must obey to get much better, ooh to get much better,
Who are we to say there's only one way to read the letter,
A decision to make and here I must be sure it will not break me,
Not a friend in the place to say to my face if I'm right or if I'm wrong
Who are we to say what we must throw away it doesn't matter ooh it doesn't matter
This is for me this is for you it's not inspiring it's not the right thing
I can't accept some things irrespective of how long you tell me
You can make me give in but that's because I'm stronger than I should be.

[Chorus:]
I don't believe you, I don't believe the things you say
There's another way, I can choose to take
There's another way and it's for me to make

When there's a voice to tell you the choice you will remember ooh you will remember
Know what to take what decisions to make without thinking
I can't accept some things, I never will say yes when I don't mean to
You make me give in but that's because I 'm happy when I'm with you.

[Chorus]

Feel The Breeze-Air Supply

Since I met you how can I notice if the sky is blue or grey
But here I am standing outside looking into a cloudy day
This must be the time for reflection, my direction is not quite clear,
Now I feel the air is colder now I feel that winter's here.

[Chorus:]
Feel the breeze, we're coming to winter [2x]

I feel the breeze I feel dejected I feel a part of a love that's gone
For in this world to take some chances from your glances I see it's wrong
Winter's here and it's a long one to be alone and in the cold
Brother sun you cast a shadow, now I need my lonely role.

[Chorus]

Gulliver-Elton John

Gulliver's gone to the final command of his master
His watery eyes had washed all the hills with his laughter
And the seasons can change all the light from the grey to the dim
But the light in his eyes will see no more bright
As the sheep that he locked in the pen

There's four feet of ground in front of the barn
That's sun baked and rain soaked and part of the farm
But now it lies empty so cold and so bare
Gulliver's gone but his memory lies there

By passing the doors of his life was a stage I remember
And in later years he would cease to bare teeth to a stranger
For sentiment touched him as Cyclamen holds him
And later men came from the town
Who said clear the child this won't take a while
And Gulliver's gone with the dawn

Skyline Pigeon-Elton john

Turn me loose from your hands
Let me fly to distant lands
Over green fields, trees and mountains
Flowers and forest fountains
Home along the lanes of the skyway

For this dark and lonely room
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
And my eyes are mirrors
Of the world outside
Thinking of the way
That the wind can turn the tide
And these shadows turn
From purple into grey

For just a Skyline Pigeon
Dreaming of the open
Waiting for the day
He can spread his wings
And fly away again
Fly away skyline pigeon fly
Towards the dreams
You've left so very far behind

Just let me wake up in the morning
To the smell of new mown hay
To laugh and cry, to live and die
In the brightness of my day

I want to hear the pealing bells
Of distant churches sing
But most of all please free me
From this aching metal ring
And open out this cage towards the sun

The Scaffold-Elton John

In Orient where wise I was
To please the way I live
Come give the beggar chance at hand
His life is on his lip

Three score a thousand times
Where once in Amazon
Where Eldorado holds the key
No keeper holds my hand

Unchain the gate of solitude
The ruler says you run
Run hard unto the scaffold high
Your chance to jump the gun

Oh how high the scaffold grows
The plant life of your widow
In black lace curtains brought you near
From out the plate glass window

The Minotaur with bloody hands
Is enraged by the sun
Caged he by the corpses
Brought forth by the dawn

In Orient is as I told
The buckshee hangman swears
For open crypts to silence
Nylon knots to sway by prayer

In Orient where wise I was
To please the way I live
Come give the beggar chance at hand
His life is on his lip

Sails-elton john

I viewed in my presence
My hand on my forehead
And sighting the liners
Of mad merchant seamen
In search of the living
Or the spices of China

Lucy walked gently
Between the damp barrels
And shut out my eyes
With the width of her fingers
Said she'd guessed the number
Of bales in the back room

While the seagulls were screaming
Lucy was eating
Then we hauled up our colors
The way the mother had told us
And together we just watched the sails

Lucy I said
In a passage of cotton kegs
Can we hold hands
I'm sure that it's warmer
Then the gulls ate the crumbs
Of Lucy's sandwich

Lady What's Tomorrow-Elton John

Look up little brother
Can you see the clover
No not over there
A little bit left and over there

Now look and see the lilac tree
The lily pond, the skylark's song
The open air but no one cares
If branches live and die out there

Remember when you were nine
And I was ten
We would run into the woods
No we never will again

And Lady, what's tomorrow
What's tomorrow anyway
If it's not the same as now
It's the same as yesterday

Yes Lady, what's tomorrow
Will it be the same as now
Will the farmer push the pen
Will the writer pull the plough

Look up little brother
Can you see the clover
Oh sorry but it's over
Now there's concrete and no clover

Hymn 2000-Elton John

She chose the soft center
And took it to bed with her mother
And the ideal confusion
Was just an illusion
To gain further news of her brother

And the comfort of mother
Was just an appeal for protection
For the cat from next door
Was found later at four
In surgical dissection

And I don't want to be
The son of any freak
Who for a chocolate center
Can take you off the street

For soon they'll plough the desert
And God knows where I'll be
Collecting submarine numbers
On the main street of the sea

The Vicar is thicker
And I just can't see through to him
For his cardinal sings
A collection of hymns
And a collection of coins is made after

And who wrote the Bible
Was it Judas or Pilate
Well one cleans his hands
While the other one hangs
But still I continue to stand

Western Ford Gateway-Elton john

It's hard to feel what's in your head
Where the gas lamps grow
And the garbage blows
Around the paper stands

And a baby cried
And I saw a light
And I wondered where
And I wondered why
There'd be a loss of life
Down here tonight

Down on Western Ford Gateway
That's a place where the dead say
That a man lives no more
That his fair share of days
Down on Western Ford Gateway

It flowed upon the cobbled floor
For the bottle's dead
And they're drunk again
By the tavern door




Val-hala-Elton John

The seadogs have all sailed their ships
Into the docks of dawn
While the sirens sit and comb their hair
And twiddle with their thumbs

Oh Thor above the mountain
Look down upon your children
This is their heaven where they're told
To bring their galleons

Seek you find your place with me
Men of iron, men of steel
Only the brave hear the hammers ring
In the courts of the Queens, in the halls of the Kings

You can come to Val-hala in your own time
Come to Val-hala seek and you will find Val-hala
Come to Val-hala in your own time
Come to Val-hala seek and you will find Val-hala

There's long boats in the harbor
Which arrive there every hour
With the souls of the heroes
Whose blood lies on the flowers

And this heaven is the home
Of every man who loves his sword
And he uses it for freedom
To preach the word of Thor

Empty Sky-Elton John

I'm not a rat to be spat on locked up in this room
Those bars that look towards the sun at night look towards the moon
Everyday the swallows play in the clouds of love
Make me wish that I had wings take me high above

And I looked high and saw the empty sky
If I could only, I could only fly
I'd drift with them in endless space
But no man flies from this place

At night I lay upon my bench and stare towards the stars
The cold night air comes creeping in and home seems oh so far
If only I could swing upon those twinkling dots above
I'd look down from the heavens upon the ones I love

Hey the lucky locket hangs around your precious neck
Some luck I ever got with you and I wouldn't like to bet
That sooner or later you'll own just one half of this land
By shining your eyes on the wealth of every man

Just send up my love ain't seen nothing but tears
Now I've got myself in this room for years
I don't see no one, I never see anyone

If A Girl Isn't Pretty-Diana Ross

If a girl isn't pretty, really pretty
Like a Miss Atlantic City.

If a girl isn't pretty like a Miss Atlantic City
All she gets in life is pity and a pat
Any nose with deviation
Is a crime against the nation
Throw her into jail or maybe drown the cat.

She must shine in every detail
Like a ring you buy in retail
With a mounting that can knock the public flat
If a girl isn't pretty like a Miss Atlantic City
There's just nothing more to say: that's that
(That's that).

If a girl isn't pretty like a Miss Atlantic City
She should dump the stage and try another route
Any guy that spends a quarter
For a seat just feels he ought-a
See a figure that his wife can't substitute.

Men with faces that can cause ya
To have a temporary nausea
Will demand a raving beauty and nothing less
When a girl's incidentals
Are no bigger than two lentils
Well, to me that doesn't spell success.

(No, no, no, no, no, no
If a girl isn't pretty, if a girl isn't pretty).

If a girl ain't perfection
She can take a pop election
Every girl must be a dazzler and a beaut'
Never mind the girl's equipment
If it ain't the right assortment
Even though she loves her mother
And she's nice to her brother
If her hair ain't too bright curly
Better go to China, girlie
Or to hell on a fast express.

If a girl isn't pretty like a Miss Atlantic City
That oblivion is hard, a drag.

Funny Girl-Diana Ross

Funny, did you hear that? Funny!
Yeah, the guy said
"Honey, you're a funny girl"

That's me
I just keep them in stitches
Doubled in half
Though I may be all wrong for the guy
I'm good for a laugh

I guess it's not funny
'Cause life is far from sunny
When the laugh is over
And the joke's on you

A girl ought to have a sense of humor
That's one thing she really needs for sure
When you're a funny girl
The fellow said "A funny girl"

Funny, how it ain't so funny
Funny girl

Funny
Did you hear that?
The guy said I was funny
We'll wait 'till the laugh's over
And the joke's on you

That's me
I just keep them in stitches
Doubled in half
And though I may be all wrong for the guy
I'm good for a laugh

I may be all wrong for the guy
I'm good for a laugh

I guess it's not funny
'Cause life is far from sunny
When the laugh is over
And the joke's on you

A girl ought to have a sense of humor
That's one thing she really need for sure
When you're a funny girl
The fellow said "A funny girl"

Funny, how it ain't so funny
Funny girl

February Song -Josh Groban

No Doubt-Robin Gibb

Mmmm, oh, ooh, oh baby.

It's Friday night, and I just got paid.
Going out on the town,
Trying to get my freak on.

I can't see me staying home all alone.
No, it ain't right, I got to go out
And see if I can find that special one.

You can be the one that I want
To get it on with, you and me, me and you,
Rocking to the break of dawn.

You can be the one
That I want to go home with,
Take you from the club to my spot,
Then we can get right to it, yeah.

No doubt - me and you, yeah, yeah.
No doubt - popping crystal, yeah.
No doubt - chilling at the house.
Get into he shower for half an hour, yeah.

No doubt - all inside the club, yeah.
No doubt - get some good lovin'.
No doubt - I just want to break you off.
Oh we to the break of dawn.

I can tell that you need a love like mine,
But you try to lay shy
Like you ain't feeling my vibe.

But I know what you need,
The only kind of love I give.
So why don't we both keep it real,
Do the kind of things we feel?
Oh yeah.

You can be the one
That I want to get it on with,
All night long, me and you,
Getting it on.

Is that what you were thinking?
You can be the one that I wanted
To go home with,
The one to go home with
Then we can get right to it, yeah.

Wish You Were Here-Robin Gibb

Yeah, yeah

You're living your life
In somebody else's heart.
I'm hurting so deep
As oceans are far apart.
I never let you down,
You were my world, you kept it turning.

They were good times,
And I wish you were here,
Yes, I wish you were here tonight.
They were good times,
I wish you were here tonight, tomorrow.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.

And so I awake in somebody else's dream.
It's only a lie, I've yet to decide who's real, oh.
You were my universe,
You were the flame that kept on burning.

They were good times,
And I wish you were here,
Yes, I wish you were here tonight.
They were good times,
I wish you were here tonight, tomorrow, oh no.

And right or wrong, oh yeah,
We were so strong together.
You were the only one I lived for,
You were the one I lived for.

They were good times,
And I wish you were here,
Yes, I wish you were here.

And I'm missing you,
And I'm missing you,
And I'm missing you tonight.

You were the flame that kept on burning,
And no one knows that I can't live without you.
They were good times when we were together.
You were the love. You are all that I live for.

And I'm missing you...

Don't Wanna Wait Forever-Robin Gibb

Aah aah, yeah yeah, aah.

I never thought I'd miss you so much.
I never thought I'd miss you enough.
To try and find a way back to you
Is somethin' that I never thought I would do.

With every little word that you say
You brighten up the darkest of days.
First time that your eyes met mine
I knew it was my time.

Every little smile that you give
Is givin' me a reason to live.
All I ever really wanted to do
Is give my heart and soul to you.

No matter, girl, when all is said and done.
You've always known that you are the only one.
Given half a chance to make you see
There could be heaven for you and me.
Oh baby.

But I don't wanna wait forever.
Can't wait no more (no more).
And I swear I've never felt this way before (never felt this way).

Gonna make it last forever (forever),
Boy, that's for sure (for sure).
I long for your tender touch.
Tell me, am I, am I asking too much?

You sit and watch the rising of the sun,
Thinkin' about things that we have done.
Think about being alone
With the only true love I've ever known.

Sweet nothings that you whisper to me,
The way you touch me so tenderly.
The brightest star in the sky bears your name.
My only wish is to hold you.

Every little smile that you give
Is givin' me a reason to live.
All I ever really wanted to do
Is give my heart and soul to you.

No matter, girl, when all is said and done
You've always known that you are the only one.
Given half a chance to make you see
There could be heaven for you and me.
Oh baby.

But I don't wanna wait forever.
Can't wait no more (can't wait no more).
And I swear I've never felt this way before (never felt this way).
Gonna make it last forever (forever),
Boy, that's for sure (baby).
I long for your tender touch.
Tell me, am I, am I asking too much?

Must I wait forever, baby? I need to know
That some day soon we will be together.
Must I wait forever?
How long for your tender touch?
Tell me, tell me, tell me baby.

But I don't wanna wait forever.
Can't wait no more.
And I swear I've never felt this way before.
Gonna make it last forever,
Boy, that's for sure.
I long for your tender touch.

Yeah, am I asking too much?
Aah, am I asking too much?

Please-Robin GIbb

Ohhhh, Mmmmm, Mmm

So many words I'd like to say to you,
So many things I'd like to do for you,
I count the seconds till your back by my side
The flame only burns when you're here in my life
You're the only one for me

Please tell me how I'll ever get over you,
Though I know you're gone can't believe that it's true
Please tell me how to ever stop wanting you
(With every beat of my heart)
With every beat of my heart,
I'll be waiting for you

Time after time, my every thought is you,
Day after day, I wanna be with you,
Open your heart and I'm sure that you'll see,
No words can express what you mean to me,

Waiting for the day when you come back in my life,
I'm waiting for the day when all that's wrong is right,
And I'm praying for the a time when you are here in my arms,
Hold you tight all day and all night

Please tell me how I'll ever get over you,
Though I know you're gone can't believe that it's true
Please tell me how to ever stop wanting you
(With every beat of my heart)
With every beat of my heart,
I'll be waiting for you

Please tell me how I'll ever get over you,

Oh Yeah
Though I know you're gone can't believe that it's true

Oh Yeah
Every beat of my heart
I'll be waiting for you

Please tell me how I'll ever get over you

Everybody's Got An Angel-Cyndi Lauper

Don't worry, everybody's got an angel
Sooner or later somebody's gonna love you well
There's no hurry
So don't worry
Cause you'll find the broken hearted
Fallen- fallen- now don't you worry
Cause everybody's got an angel.

Don't worry, everybody's got an angel
Sooner or later everybody's bound to tell
There's no hurry
So don't worry
Cause you'll find the broken hearted
Fallen- fallen- now don't you worry
Cause everybody's got an angel.

Lorraine-Cyndi Lauper

Long ago a lonely man stood
Off of a quiet avenue
A pretty girl in passing chanced to look
That's when he fell, fell for you

I listen to the rain
Pounding on the railing
The beat's a sweet, soft refrain
of how he found you LORRAINE

He's rocking on a porch you used to know
Here where he swore his love was true
He sips his drink and dreams the days of old
Of when he fell, fell for you

I listen to the rain...

I'm Gonna Be Strong-Cyndi Lauper

I can see
You're slipping away from me
And you're so afraid
That I'll plead with you to stay
So I'm gonna be strong
I'll let you go your way

Love is gone
There's no sense in going on
And your pity now
Would be more than I could bare
So I'm gonna be strong
I'll pretend I don't care

I'm gonna be strong
And stand as tall as I can
I'm gonna be strong
And let you go along
And take it like a man

When you say it's the end
I'll hand you a line
I'll smile and say
Don't you worry it's fine
And you'll never know darling
After you kiss me goodbye
How I'll break down and cry.

Just The Other Day-Cyndi Lauper

Just the other day-
I heard you walked out on her
Just the other day-
I heard it's not forever

You say, anyway-
You said it's not like before
Just the other day-

Did she let you go
Did she let you go.

Just the other day-
You lost the girl you adored
Just the other day-
You boyish love was the cause
Did she cost you pain
You could have held out for more
Just the other day-

Did she let you go
Did she let you go

I see your walking alone
Will you still talk to me
If she's not by your side anymore.

Late-Cyndi lauper

My oh my it's a quarter to eight
Don't shoot me down dreamboat I'm a late date
Don't ask me no questions I ain't got a smooth line,
Please a' wait a little longer tryin' to make it there on time

Tickety tock, oh the clock don't stop

Lazy, dizzy, daisy it's a quarter to whoops, uh, oh
Doin' nothing honey just a' thinkin' of you
So don't you give me no suggestions
while I ain't got the time
Won't ya move a little closer and a kiss
me one more time

Tickety tock, oh the clock don't stop

It doesn't matter cause
I know that you would love me too-

But I was late late late.

Can't Blame Me-Cyndi Lauper

Baby I want the
Love you been savin'
Tell me the truth
Boy why you been waitin'
Oh, oh, oh, oh can't blame me

We could be sweethearts
We could be never
Did you forget
I love you forever
Oh, oh, oh, oh can't blame me

I can see by now
You don't want to know
Can't blame me if I love you so

I'll be your dancer
A silky eyed lady
Dreamin' of moonlight
Hopin' that maybe
Oh, oh, oh, oh can't blame me

We could be sweethearts...

Anna Blue-Cyndi Lauper

Anna Blue oh
Anna Blue oh
Anna

Not me, not you
Just time and a sigh
On a line look in fine print-
The small town dream
To be part of the scene
You can wear it with a style
In your eyes a story never spoken-

Anna Blue oh
Anne Blue oh
Anna

Just me, just you
Just a wide eyed girl
Turn around quick-
I'm walkin' my high heeled shoes
And I'll be talkin' pretty smooth
Like some souped up cosmo girl
In a stupifying world
But before I fall I wake up crying
Oh... when I sit back
I'll sigh and think...

Fade-Cyndi Lauper

I think I'm walkin' down your street
I sense a silent shuffle to my heartbeat
Why cry, I'll just fade
Fade you away

I watch your window from the street
I guess I'll etch a vision in my daydreams of you
Of you, of you, but you

Never thought I'd be so proud-
But I will never live without you
Oh, oh, oh, oh, fade
Fade you away, I will fade, fade you away
I think I'm walkin' down your street...

I Had A Love-Cyndi Lauper

I had a love
Sweeter than you'll know
Oh I had a lifetime in a moment
He was a boy
I loved so tenderly
He could have been
But he walked away - oh, oh, oh, oh

Baby don't go
I thought maybe I should have
Told you long before
Something inside is erasing
The time back to the memory-
When you were mine.

Maybe He'll Know - Cyndi Lauper

Maybe he'll know
I'm not so sure
Maybe he'll know
Maybe he'll be my cure
ah, ah, ah.

Maybe he'll know
I'm not so sure
Maybe he'll know
Maybe he'll be - oh

Something calls to me
I know, I know
I hear an echo start to pound like a drum, I'm
Chanting a song, anchor me-
But don't take too long... no, no, no, no

I got an anxious feeling
Got this ache engraved in me like stone-
Don't take too long
Say you'll never leave me - say you'll never go.

We've Got A Good Thing Going-Michael Jackson ( Ben 1972)

Bad news, bad news!
I heard you're packing to leave!
I come running right over
I just couldn't believe it
I couldn't believe it

Oh baby, baby
You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away?
We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing

I've never done you no wrong
I never hit you when you're down
I always gave you good thing
I never ran around
I never ran around

Oh baby, baby
You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away?
We've got a good thing goin', baby

If you're fixing to go
I can't make it without you
No no no no, no no no no
No no no no, no no no no

You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away?

Ode To Billie Joe-Diana Ross ( Reflections-1968)


It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day
I was out choppin' cotton and my brother was balin' hay
And at dinner time we stopped and we walked back to the house to eat
And mama hollered at the back door "y'all remember to wipe your feet"
And then she said she got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
Today Billie Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Papa said to mama as he passed around the blackeyed peas
"Well, Billie Joe never had a lick of sense, pass the biscuits, please"
"There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow"
Mama said it was shame about Billie Joe, anyhow
Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge
And now Billie Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

And brother said he recollected when he and Tom and Billie Joe
Put a frog down my back at the Carroll County picture show
And wasn't I talkin' to him after church last Sunday night?
"I'll have another piece of apple pie, you know it just don't seem right"
"I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctaw Ridge"
"And now you tell me Billie Joe's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge"

Mama said to me "Child, what's happened to your appetite?"
"I've been cookin' all morning and you haven't touched a single bite"
"That nice young preacher, Brother Taylor, dropped by today"
"Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, oh, by the way"
"He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up on Choctaw Ridge"
"And she and Billie Joe was throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge"

A year has come 'n' gone since we heard the news 'bout Billie Joe
Brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo
There was a virus going 'round, papa caught it and he died last Spring
And now mama doesn't seem to wanna do much of anything
And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge

And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Misery Makes Its Home In My Heart-Diana Ross ( Reflections-1968)

The door to my heart was open
Open wide much wider than wide
(I said the door was open)
And I had been praying and hoping
That your love would come walking inside

I should have locked my heart
I should have thrown away the key
Instead I let you walk on through
I thought your love was true
But it was misery

Ooh, heartaches, heartbreaks
That's all I've known
Misery makes my heart its home

(I said the door was open, it was wide open)
My heart had room inside
And to fill it with love I was willing
I wanted it to be occupied
By a love that was strong and fulfilling

I should have shut you out
Detained you with a strong defence
Instead my heart gave shelter to
A love I felt was true
In every sense
Don't you know that

Heartaches, heartbreaks
That's all I've known
Misery makes my heart its home

(My heart had room inside now, it had room inside)
Now I've cried a river
No it's more like a sea
Tears flow by the thousand
Since my heart is housing this misery
Misery

Let me tell you about
Heartaches, heartbreaks
That's all I've known
Misery makes my heart its home

Heartaches, heartbreaks
That's all I've known
Misery makes my heart its home

Heartbreaks
That's all I've known
Misery makes my heart its home

Then-Diana Ross ( Reflections-1968)

If Columbus never sailed the sea
If Longfellow never wrote a rhyme
If leaves have never grown upon a tree
And if the sands have never told the time
Then I guess I don't love you
Love you like I do
Then I guess I'll have to find me someone new
Then I guess this love I feel couldn't possibly be real

If Beethoven never wrote a song
And if Shakespeare never wrote a play
If a man has never done a wrong
And if night has never followed day
Then I guess I don't love you
Love you like I do
Then I guess I'll have to find me someone new
Then I guess this love for you couldn't possibly be true

If high is low
And up is down
And if love is not considered an emotion
If yes is no
And square is round
And if waves had never rode across the ocean

If Michaelangelo could never paint
And if Jezebel was a saint
Then I guess I don't love you
Love you like I do
Then I guess I'll have to find me someone new
Then I guess this love is wrong couldn't possibly be strong

Then I don't love you
Love you like I do
Then I guess I'll have to find me someone new
Then I guess this love I feel...

Love (Makes Me Do Foolish Things)-Diana Ross ( Reflections-1968)

Love, love, love makes me do foolish things
Sitting on by the phone, a phone that never rings
Hoping to hear you say you love me still
Knowing you never will.

Love, love, love has made a fool of me
Got me doing things, things that shouldn't be
Listening for the sound of your knock on my door
Knowing that sweet sound would be no more.

Funny how precious memories linger on
So long after you?e gone
Oooh, precious memories that all makes me cry
But I keep holding on, oh why should I?

All because love, love, love has made a fool of me
Speak your name softly each night
While holding your picture tight
When you took my heart, you took my soul
And it's far beyond control.

Funny how precious memories linger on
So long, long after you're gone
Oh, precious memories that all makes me cry
But I keep holding on, oh why should I?

All because love, love, love makes me do these things
Love, love, love, love has made a fool of me
Love, love, love makes me do foolish things.

Up, Up And Away-Diana Ross ( Reflections-1968)

Would you like to ride
In my beautiful balloon?
Would you like to glide
In my beautiful balloon?
We could flow among the stars
Together you and I
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

The world's a nicer place
In my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face
In my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song
And sail along the silversky
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

Suspended under a twilight canopy
We'll search the sky for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We'll find a cloud to hide us
Keep the moon beside us

Love is waiting there
In my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air
In ly beautiful balloon
If you'll hold my hand
We'll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away
