Thunder in my Heart (1977)

 

Thunder in my Heart

(Leo Sayer / Tom Snow)

 

Standing here alone with you

Wondering what it is that I’m supposed to do

And there you are with the lovelight in your eyes

Your bridges are burnt down

Your arms are open wide

 

Am I in too deep or should I swim to the shore

Is this the real thing I don’t know

But I’ve never been here before

 

And I feel a thunder in my heart

That I just can’t control

I feel a thunder in my heart

Should I walk away or follow my soul

I feel a thunder in my heart

Where it comes from I just don’t know

Oh no, oh no

 

There’s a storm ragin’ deep in my soul

There’s a howlin’ wind that I just can’t control

There’s a fire inside me I can’t explain

Every time you touch me my love falls like rain

 

I’ve only known you for an hour or more

But the time is standin’ still

Your love has opened up the door

 

I feel a thunder in my heart

It takes my breath away

I feel a thunder in my heart

Will I ever be the same

I feel a thunder in my heart

It’s telling me you’re here to stay

Oh no, oh no

 

There’s a thunder in my heart

There’s a thunder in my heart

There’s a thunder in my heart

There’s a thunder in my heart

 

Take me baby I’m all yours

Do just what you wanna do with my love

Let’s not let the night overtake us

‘Cos what’s happening right now may make or break us

 

Do you feel the way I do

Open up your heart now baby

I’m coming’ through

 

I feel a thunder in my heart

Takin’ my breath away

I feel a thunder in my heart

Since I met you I’ll never be the same

I feel a thunder in my heart

I know you’re here to stay

I feel a thunder in my heart

And I know you’re here to stay

 

 

 

 

Easy to Love

(Leo Sayer/Albert Hammond)

 

It’s easy to love when I love someone like you

It’s easy to feel when you feel the way I do

 

You know love don’t come easy and love don’t come fast

But when loves come to you, you gotta make it last

On the day that I met you I knew it could be

So easy for you and so easy for me

 

It’s easy to love when I love someone like you, babe

It’s easy to feel when you feel the way I do, babe

 

Like the stars in the night seem to shine from above

That’s the way that you shine when you give me your love

And your love satisfies me like a natural high

From the soles of my feet to the top of the sky

 

It’s easy to love when I love someone like you

It’s easy to feel when you feel the way I do

 

(Solo)

 

You know love don’t come easy, and love don’t come fast

But when love comes to you, you gotta make it last

On the day that I met you I knew it would be

So easy for you and so easy for me

 

It’s easy to love when I love someone like you, babe

It’s easy to feel when you feel the way I do, babe

It’s easy to love when I love someone like you, babe

 

It’s easy to love

So easy to love

Easy to love

You’re so easy to love

 

 

 

 

Leave Well Enough Alone

(Tom Snow/Kerry Chater)

 

Little girl you have your fun

Take it easy

Just don’t jump the gun

You don’t have to try so hard

You will always be my number one

 

You got me in your bed of roses

Please don’t change the boy

‘Cos havin’ you around heaven knows

Is somethin’ I enjoy

 

Leave well enough alone baby

Don’t get too serious, no

Leave well enough alone child

Don’t go and change on us

Life won’t be the same for us

Better leave it alone

 

I know you’ve got ideas

Monograms and sets of hers and his

I hate to have to break the spell

But let me tell you how it really is

 

You know I feel at home with you just the way we are

But go ahead and dream those dreams

Just don’t carry them too far

 

Leave well enough alone baby

Don’t get too serious

Leave well enough alone child

Don’t go and change on us

Life won’t be the same for us

Better leave it alone

 

You know it feels so good with you just the way we are

But if you wanna dram those dreams baby

Don’t carry them too far

 

Leave well enough alone child

I love you just the way you are

 

Leave well enough alone baby

Let’s not change a thing baby

Let’s not change a thing babe

Leave it alone

 

Please, please, please,

Please leave

Leave it alone baby

 

 

 

 

I Want You Back

(Leo Sayer/Albert Hammond)

 

You know I thought I could live without you

I thought I could get along

But I never realized that I could be so wrong

 

Was I a fool to leave you

Or was I a fool to let you go

Doesn’t seem to matter much now baby

I should have never let you go

 

I want you back

I want you back

And I will never stop until I got you back

 

I wander the road where we used to walk

And lots of people pass by

They all look like they’re in love

Everybody but me

 

I see your face in the crowd

I hear your voice everywhere I go

And when I turn around thinking you’ve come back

Ah, you’re never, never, never there

 

I want you back

I want you back

And I’ll keep on searchin’ until you’re really here

I want you back

I want you back

And I’ll never stop until I get you back

Back in my arms to stay

 

 

(Solo)

 

I want you back

I want you back

And I will never stop until I know I’ve got

You back in my heart to stay

 

 

 

 

It’s Over

(Leo Sayer/Tom Snow)

 

Last night I realized

There’s no point in compromise

I guess it’s time we said it’s over

 

‘Cos I been watchin’ you

Searchin’ for something’ new

Go find it now ‘cos it’s all over

 

What’s the sense in bitterness

It only leads to emptiness

I thought that we’d find happiness

But we’ve run out of track and we won’t get it back

 

‘Cos it’s over, it’s all over

It’s all over, it’s over

 

I’m gonna have to live with this

The one thing that I will miss

Is coming to you when my day is over

 

I’ll come home to loneliness

My life all in a mess

Just wishing we were never over

 

You read about it every day

Another love has gone astray

But who would think we’d end this way

We’ve run out of track and we won’t get it back

 

And it’s over, it’s all over

It’s over, it’s all over

 

I remember when you said to me

Take care when you share your love

Before you give it all so easily

Be sure that you can give enough

Look what happened to us

 

It’s all over, it’s over

Over, it’s all over

It’s all over, it’s all over

 

We’ve run out of track and we won’t get back

‘Cos it’s over

No more me, no more you

It’s over

It’s all over

 

 

 

 

Fool For Your Love

(Leo Sayer/Michael Omartian)

 

Ooh, but love was just so hard to find

Until you came along into my life

And I thought I would lose my mind

When you said that you wanted to be mine

 

And ever since that day I’ve been hooked

And nothin’ could tear me away

This livin’ with you’s like a dream come true

And it grows more and more everyday

 

Ooh, I’m reachin’ the highest of highs

Every time I look in your eyes

You ask how I feel I can say it out loud

I feel like a million inside

 

I never thought this could happen to me

You got me just where you want me baby

And for your love I would do anything

Ever night I’m a fool for your love, yeah

 

I’m a fool for your love

I’m a fool for your love

I’m a fool for your love

Hey I’m just a fool for your love

 

Drivin’ home from this sleepy old town

When my day’s work is all through

Runnin’ the lights, well I wish I could fly

Just to get back faster to you

 

I waited all day by the telephone

Starin’ at the clock on the wall

The hours are so long when you’re free from my arms

And I just can’t wait to you hold you

 

I’m a fool for your love

I’m a fool for your love

Baby I’m just a fool for your love

I’m just a fool for your love

 

Ooh, you’re givin’ me chills up my spine

I’m feelin’ so fine, goin’ out of my mind

And I don’t care if it never stops

I’ll love you right up until I drop, you know

 

I’m a fool for your love

I’m a fool for your love

I’m just a fool for your love

I’m just a fool for you love

 

I’m a fool for your love

I’m a fool for your love

I’m just a fool for your love

I’m just a fool for you love

 

You’ve got a fool on your hands baby

I’m just a fool for your love

I’m a fool

I’m just a fool

 

 

 

 

World Keeps on Turning

(Leo Sayer/Michael Omartian)

 

Ooh, can’t you see

The days are rollin’ by

The things I read about the world outside

Don’t seem to matter now you’re here tonight

 

Hold me, love’s callin’, hold me if you can

 

The world just keeps on turning

It don’t mean a thing to me

Long as I’m with you, babe

There’s nothin’ that I need

World just keeps on turning

But your lovin’ stays the same

Long as I got you, babe

The world can roll away

 

Ooh, can you feel it

Now we’re a million miles away

The world looks oh so small from up here, baby

And that’s the way it’s gonna stay

 

Hold on, love’s callin’, hold on if you can

 

The world just keeps turning

Don’t mean a thing to me

Long as I’m with you, babe

There’s nothin’ that I need

World just keeps on turning

But your lovin’ stays the same

Long as I got you, babe

The world can roll away

 

(Solo)

 

Oh, it’s you and me, baby

Lost in our lovin’ dreams

No one to tell us what we should or shouldn’t do

This time life is more than it seems

Hold on, love’s callin’, hold on if you can

 

(Solo)

 

World just keeps on turning

Don’t mean a thing to me

Long as I’m with you, babe

There’s nothin’ that I need

 

The world just keeps on turning

But your loving stays the same

Long as I got you, babe

World can roll away

 

Because the world

Just keeps on turning’

The world just keeps on turnin’

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

 

 

 

 

There Isn’t Anything

(John Vastano)

 

You know there isn’t anything

Anything, I wouldn’t do

You know there isn’t anyone

Anyone, loves me like you

 

Holdin’ you close and feelin’ your heartbeat inside

It’s just like a miracle

And you’re makin’ me feel so glad I’m alive

And in every way I’m wanna thank you

 

You know there isn’t anything

Anything, I couldn’t be

You know there isn’t anyone

Anyone, keep you from me

 

If you’re caught in a storm or lost out at sea

Seachin’ for a miracle

I would soften the wind

And calm the angry sea

To bring you home to me

 

(Solo)

 

So if they built up an army

To take you from me

Just like a miracle

I would fly like an eagle

And carry you so far away, in my fantasy

 

You know there isn’t anything

Anything I wouldn’t do

Oh no, no, no

You know there isn’t anything

Anything I wouldn’t do

And I’ll be there if you want me baby

 

It’s just like a miracle

Loving you

Just like a miracle

Loving you, loving you

 

 

 

 

Everything I’ve Got

(Tom Snow/John Vastano)

 

I never worry I never fret

‘Cos when I got you on my side you can bet

I got it all, I’m standing so tall

And when I hold you in my arms

You know I’ll never let you fall

When trouble comes to call

 

I would give you everything I’ve got

Don’t you know

You know that I will love you a lot

Never let you go

Don’t need nobody

Want nobody but you

 

Time’s gonna come

We’ll be put to the test

And you and me girl

We won’t be like the rest

We’ll see it through

Just me and you

And when they ask us

We will say it’s been tried and it’s still true

We’re still shinin’ through

 

I would give you everything I’ve got

Don’t you know

You know that I will love you a lot

Never let you go

Don’t need nobody

Want nobody but you

 

(Solo)

 

I would give you everything I’ve got

Everything I got

You know what I would love you

Love you a lot

Don’t need nobody

Need no one but you

No one but you

 

Everything I got

Don’t you know

You know that I would love you

Love you a lot

Don’t need nobody

Need no one but you

No one but you

 

 

 

 

We Can Start it all Over Again

(Leo Sayer/Bruce Roberts/Tom Snow)

 

Ooh babe, what can I say to you

To change what you’re feelin’ inside

Ooh babe, I’ve got to get close to you

Please don’t cast me aside

 

You know I hate to see you lookin’ so sad

I can’t stand to watch this good love go bad

Let’s stop and think about the good times that we had

 

We can start it all, start it all, over again

And we can have it all, have it all, just one more time

We can start it all start it all, all over again

 

Ooh, babe, don’t look that way at me

You know you’re breaking’ my heart

Ooh, babe, I am as sorry as I can be

Don’t let this tear us apart

 

Now let’s forget about the tears that we cried

What’s gone is gone and there ‘ain’t nothin’ to hide

Come on baby, why can’t we give it one more try

 

We can start it all, start it all, all over again

And we can have it all, have it all, just a one more time

If we can start it all, start it all, all over again

 

(Solo)

 

Just think about

Just think about it babe

Just think about it babe

 

Oh baby, I acted like a fool

You just trust me baby and I’ll make it up to you

I see your smile’s returnin’

I know you understand

 

Come on baby

All you got to do is take my hand

I love you baby, we’re gonna start it all again

We’ll have it down like nothin’ before

 

We can have it all, have it all, yeah everything

We can start it all, start it all, all over again

We can have it all, have it all, yeah everything

 

I wanna love you babe, all over again
