Heart

(B. Gibb/R. Gibb/M. Gibb)

 

We’re giving up on all the emptiness

I fill it up with your sweet love beside me

Ain’t no fun to be a rolling stone inside

 

You buy the feeling and then you pay with tears

For what it matters you go with the motion

Then out of nowhere there’s a full moon rising

And it’s mine

 

And every, every moment is the history we make and more

We got a legacy of understanding, I

Can love you better but don’t let your

 

Heart stop beating in time

Don’t take me below the danger level

Caught up in the middle of a misery

Don’t let me die

And I warn you if you let your

Heart stop beating in time

Don’t make it a fatal combination

I won’t ever find another your love like yours, no, no

 

Got to get closer, got to be in sight

You make it heaven to breathe with you woman

Don’t you get lonely in the midnight hour like me

And there’s an angel that I follow on the wind, and more

Within a universe of undiscovered eyes

We found each other so don’t let your

 

Heart stop beating in time

Don’t take me below the danger level

Caught up in the middle of a misery

Oh baby don’t let it be

 

Save my soul

I don’t wanna be no chains that hold

Gotta be a wild new world out

There is a plan

I don’t wanna be no one night stand

Gonna be alive for you

Now here is the love

I can hold it in my hand

Can you feel it

I’m nothing if you let your

 

Heart stop beating in time

Don’t take me below the danger level

Caught up in the middle of this misery

Don’t let me down

 

If you let your heart stop beating in time

You’re making a fatal combination

I wont’ ever find another love like yours

Don’t let me down

 

Don’t let your heart stop beating in time

Don’t take me below the danger level

Living in the middle of this misery

Don’t let it die

 

 

 

 

Paris Dies in The Morning

(A. McCrorie-Shand/J. Danter)

 

I feel so lost and lonely

Standing by the river Seine

I don’t know how I got here or why I came

But everywhere I see her smiling face

I remember

 

We met somewhere in the back streets

In this city of another age

And talking broken English ‘til the darkness came

And in my room she called me by my name

And she whispered

 

Paris dies in the morning

That’s something that they never say

They never tell you

Paris dies in the morning light

You’d never think it late at night, no, no

 

It disappears in the sunshine

It’s something that they never say

They never tell you

Paris dies in the morning light

It’s always gonna be that way

 

When we made love in that hotel

Like I never made before

Thought I could die

When she whispered slow

Marai toujours

 

She was wild and enchanting

The night was like a dream

We danced and sang the

Sweetest harmony

 

The words come back so clear

I remember when we sang

Paris dies in the morning

That’s something that they never say

They never tell you

Paris dies in the morning light

You’d never think it late at night, no, no

 

 

(Solo)

 

When I awoke in the morning

She was nowhere to be found

That’s why I’m standing

Waiting a t this river’s edge

 

I know we’ll never meet again

It was true when she said

Paris dies in the morning

(It ends this way)

 

The moment when it steals your heart

And then it loves you

Paris dies I the morning light

You’d never think it late at night, no no

She disappeared in the morning light

She said that it would end this way

Did not believe her

 

Paris dies in the morning light

I know we’ll never meet again

 

(Solo)

 

I know we’ll never meet again

She’s gone

Paris dies in the morning

 

 

 

 

Have You Ever Been In Love

(A.Hill/P. Sinfield/J. Danter)

 

In the morning light

Half awake and half asleep

Have you ever lay there thinking

Was it all in a dream

But you reach out and she’s there

Every moment everywhere

Have you ever been in love

 

Have you ever felt how far a heart can fall

Have you ever stayed up waiting for a telephone call

Just to hear her say hello

‘Cos you miss each other so

Have you ever been in love

 

Have there been times to laugh

And times you really wanna cry

Finding reasons to believe her

‘Cos you’d die a little if she lied

And when in times of doubt

Have you ever tried to work it out

But still she leaves you wondering what it’s all about

 

When she’s far away, did you ever felt the need to stray

And tried and then discovered it just doesn’t pay

And with her you can be true

For with her you can be you

Have you ever been in love

 

Have there been times to laugh

And times you really wanna cry

Finding reasons to believe her

‘Cos you’d die a little if she lied

And when in times of doubt

Have you ever tried to work it out

But still she leaves you wondering what it’s all about

 

(Solo)

 

And when in times of doubt

Have you ever tried to work it out

And still she leaves you wondering what it’s all about

 

And when the night comes down

Can you call this house a home

Do you dream you’re still together

And wake up alone

Have you ever been in love

The way that I’m in love

Have you ever been in love

 

 

 

 

Rumours

(G. Mark/R. Smith)

 

I heard some things about you

I can’t believe it’s true

I heard the flame don’t burn bright as it used to

 

I heard some things about you

I know they must be lies

Don’t turn your face away, baby

When I need to see your eyes

 

‘Cos I keep hearing rumours

People telling me rumours

I keep hearing those rumours

Seems like everybody’s my best friend

Rumours, don’t go believing rumours

I swear it’s only rumours

Listen babe, I don’t want our love to end

 

(It’s a shame – they talk, they talk, they talk)

 

I heard some things about you

Suspicion coming on

I need some answers woman

Don’t tell me nothing’s wrong, nothing’s wrong

 

I heard some things about you

The way you’re treating me

You give your love to someone else

When it used to come to me

 

Oh I’ve been hearing rumours

Everybody’s saying rumours

I don’t wanna hear no rumours

How come everybody wants to be my best friend

 

I don’t believe it no, oh

 

(It’s a shame – they talk

They talk, they talk

They talk, they talk

They talk, they talk…)

 

Now I’ve got so many friends

I’ve never had before

And you’re the only friend I want

I don’t want no more

All these rumours I hear

I can’t believe they’re true

And they’re trying to tear me

Oh no, they’re trying to tear me away from you

 

Rumours, I don’t believe it babe

Rumours

They’re just whispers in the wind

They’ve got it all wrong

Everybody’s wants our love to end

Rumours, I don’t believe in those

Rumours, lots of big rumours

Rumours, it’s only vicious rumours

I don’t want our love to end

 

I don’t want our love to end

I don’t want our love to end

 

 

 

 

Heroes

(Leo Sayer/D. Courtney)

 

I live in the times

That you left behind

I sold ‘em my mind for nickels and dimes

I must have been blind

 

I search for the cause

That has no reward

I’ve tried to move on

But everyone’s gone on and I

 

Can’t get it back

No, I can’t get it back

 

I’m always reaching for the right track

Where has it gone why can’t I get it back

Where have my heroes gone

I’ve no-one to hold on to

 

I’m out here standing on a landslide

I’m out here falling through a paper sky

Where have my heroes gone

I’ve nothing to hold onto

 

Lost in a daze

I’ll never erase

When radio waves

Would take us away

On dreams that we’ve made

 

Like an old song

I just don’t belong

But I try to be strong

So let the music roll on

 

We can’t get it back

Yes, I can’t get it back

 

I’m always listening for the right track

And when it’s gone I wanna play it back

Where have my heroes gone

I’ve no-one left to hold on to

 

I’m out here standing on a landslide

I’m out here falling through a paper sky

Where have my heroes gone

I’ve no one left to hold on to, oh

 

(Don’t let those heroes die

Their songs have changed our lives

They came they saw

They conquered all

Don’t let them die

And say goodbye)

 

Am I always searching for the right track

Where have they have gone

Why can’t I get it back

Where have my heroes gone

I’ve no-one left to hold on to

 

I’m out here standing on a landslide

I’m out here falling through a paper sky

Where have my heroes gone

I’ve no one left to hold on to

They’re gone

 

(Don’t let those heroes die

Their songs have changed our lives

They came they saw

They conquered all

Don’t let them die

And say goodbye)

 

 

 

 

‘Til You Let Your Heart Win

(A.Willis/L.Wood)

 

I could love you but you’re hard to touch

Standing by you I have seen so much

Ain’t it funny how I found the one

But you pull back to protect a heart born to run

 

Passion begs you to oblige them all

Love escapes you and you watch them fall

Giving nothing you are left to bleed

Will you ever recognise I know what you need

 

I wanna hold you tight

Give you the rest of my life

You are my heaven

The river flows to the sea

Like you could reach out to me

But I can get in

‘Til you let your heart win

 

Dressed in silence

To disguise the pain

Pure emotion doesn’t know your name

Love still haunts you

Please don’t turn away

I’m with you if you care

Oh you know, things will change

 

‘Cos I wanna hold you tight

And give you the rest of my life

You are my heaven

The river flows to the sea

Like you could reach out to me

But love can get in

‘Til you let your heart win

 

(You let your heart win)

 

‘Til let your heart win

Oh let it win

 

Let your heart win baby

Please give in

Let your heart win baby

Try and give in, try and give in

Let your heart

Let your heart win

 

 

 

 

The End of the Game

(Leo Sayer/D. Courtney)

 

Though he heard her clearly

She said it so sincerely

That’s something that he doesn’t understand

 

Her words were choked and broken

She left him with a token

The note he is holding in his hand

 

(Don’t let me down, don’t let me down)

 

Is this the end of the game

And will you put out the flame

And fly away

Don’t fly away

Now let’s find out who’s too blame

And start all over again

Don’t fly away

Don’t fly away

 

Way across the city

Waiting on a taxi

Holding cases

Standing in the hall

Thinking “well if only”

She’s feeling sad and lonely

Hoping ‘gainst all hope that  he will call

Don’t let me down

Don’t let me down

 

Is this the end of the game

And should I put out the flame

And fly away, and fly away

And if I walk out again

Is it true that the pain

Will fly away, fly away

 

Fly away

The taxi driver’s talking

But she doesn’t hear a single word he says

Fly away,

The tears fall so easily

Keep falling ‘til she climbs aboard the plane

 

And it’s the end of the game

With only fortune to blame

 

(Solo)

 

Yes, it’s the end of the game

But love was given in vain

Sail away, sail away

Just like the sunshine and rain

It’s true that one day will pain will fly away

Fly away, fly away

 

 

 

 

Wondering Where the Lions Are

(B.Cockburn)

 

Sun’s up, mm, hmm, looks okay

The world survives into another day

And I’m thinking about eternity

And this ecstasy’s got a hold on me

 

Yeah, I had another dream about lions at the door

They weren’t half as frightening as they were before

I’m thinking about eternity

Some kind of ecstasy’s got a hold on me

 

Walls windows trees, waves coming through

You’ll be into me and I’ll be into you

Together in eternity

All this ecstasy’s got a hold on me

 

And I’m wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

I’m wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

 

Big orange flying boat rises off the lake

Thousand-year-old dinosaur doing a double take

Pointing a finger at eternity

I’m sitting here in the middle of this ecstasy

 

Last night again there where lions at the door

But I wasn’t frightened like I was before

Thinking about eternity

And the ecstasy that’s got a hold on me

 

And I’m wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

I’m wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

I’m wonderin’

 

(Solo)

 

Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay

One of these days we’re going to sail away

Sail into eternity

All this ecstasy’s got a hold on me

 

And I’m wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Tell me where the lions are

Wonderin’ where the lions are

Tell me where the lions are

Tell me where the lions are

Tell me where they are

 

I wanna know

Where the lions are

 

 

 

 

We’ve Got Ourselves In Love

(Leo Sayer/D. Courtney)

 

We were just friend’s babe

But love came on too strong

We could not stop

What we knew was wrong

 

We meet in this hotel

To hide from prying eyes

Nobody knows

About out secret life

 

We’ve got ourselves in love babe

We’ve got ourselves in love

What are we going to do about us

We’re so much in love

 

We got ourselves in love girl

We’ve got ourselves in love

Nothin’ we can do about us

Being in love

 

Oh we’re so much in love

 

Don’t talk in my sleep babe

I don’t repeat your name

But somehow she knows

That we’re playing games

 

So we talk in whispers

And plan out getaway

We’ve got to make our move

Before it’s too late

 

We’ve got ourselves in love girl

We got ourselves in love

What are we going to do about us

We’re so much in love

 

We’ve got ourselves in love babe

We’ve got ourselves in love

Nothin’ they can do

 

My conscience says

That you and I should stay as friends

My heart pretends, oh baby

With you my life can start again

 

Got ourselves in love babe

We’ve got ourselves in love

There’s nothin’ they can do about us

Being in love

 

We got ourselves in love

We’ve got ourselves in love

And I know we’ll pull through

Just being in love

 

 

 

 

World Radio

(Leo Sayer/D. Courtney)

 

I am the voice

I am the radio

You hear me loud and clear

 

Across the open sky

Into the night

You hear me loud and clear

 

I was thinking you’re a part of my mind

Breathing sleeping talking two of a kind

 

I’m the voice in your head

(do you read me)

The word you just said

(do you hear me)

 

Aah – the world goes spinning around

Aah – and you all join in with the sound

Aah – we sing with one voice

Like a world radio

Aah – we sing with one voice

Like a world radio

 

I feel the pain

I feel the joy and love

You hear it loud and clear

 

But should the music stop

I’ll feel so low

I’ll fade and disappear

 

I’m just thinking that we’re two of a kind

Think I know what’s going on in your mind

 

When the red light goes on

(can you tell me)

Is your green light still on

(do your hear me)

 

Aah – the world goes spinning around

Aah – and you all join in with the sound

Aah – we sing with one voice

We’re a world radio

Aah – we sing with one voice

We’re a world radio

 

The world goes spinning around

Aah – we all join in with the sound

Aah – we sing with one voice

Like a world radio

 

We join in with the sound

The world goes spinning, spinning around

Aah – we sing with one voice

We’re a world radio

 

(Solo)

 

Aah – we sing with one voice

We’re a world radio

 

Radio

 

Is the green light on

(can you tell me)

Don’t put your red light on

(do you read me)

I know the green light’s on

Don’t put, don’t put your red light on

Is the green light on
