On Broadway

October 25, 2008

On Broadway
They say the neon lights are bright
on Broadway (on Broadway)
They say there’s always magic in the air
(on Broadway)
But when you’re walkin’ down the street
And you ain’t had enough to eat
The glitter rubs right off and you’re nowhere
(on Broadway)

They say the girls are something else
on Broadway (on Broadway)
But looking at them just gives me the blues
(on Broadway)
‘Cause how you gonna make some time
When all you got is one thin dime
And one thin dime won’t even shine your shoes
(on Broadway)

Ha! They say that I won’t last too long
on Broadway (on Broadway)
I’ll catch a Greyhound bus for home, they all say
(on Broadway)
But Oh! They’re dead wrong,
I know they are
‘Cause I can play this here guitar
And I won’t quit ’til I’m a star
on Broadway (on Broadway)

They say the neon lights are bright
on Broadway (on Broadway)
They say there’s always magic in the air
(on Broadway)
But when you’re walkin’ down the street
And you ain’t had enough to eat
The glitter rubs right off and you’re nowhere
(on Broadway)

They say the girls are something else
on Broadway (on Broadway)
But looking at them just gives me the blues

But Oh! They’re dead wrong,
I know they are
‘Cause I can play this here guitar
And I won’t quit ’til I’m a star
on Broadway (on Broadway)

(alternate ending)

I’m gonna make it, yeah (on Broadway)
I’ll be a big, big, big man (on Broadway)
I’ll have my name in lights (on Broadway)
Everybody, everybody’s gonna know me, yes (on Broadway)
All up and down Broadway (on Broadway)

Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

From the moment that I see you
Chills run down my spine
Your smile is mesmerizin’
And soothes me like sweet wine

(Ooh) With you is where it’s warmer
I never want to leave
So come on, girl, let’s closer
I want to breathe when you breathe

You make me shiver
Girl, your love is such a sweet sensation, ho, ho
You make me shiver
Baby, when you’re here with me it’s fascination

You make me shiver

When we’re dancing close together
Wrapped up in a bliss
My heart is racing and , baby
The magic in your kiss

(Ooh) We share a special feeling
I hope the music never ends, mmm
New love takes on a new meaning
Girl, let’s move across the floor across again

You make me shiver
Girl, your love is such a sweet sensation, ho, ho
You make me shiver
Baby, when you’re here with me it’s fascination

I’ve been waitin’ forever
Feels so real, better than a fantasy
When we’re so close together

Ooh, yeah

Footprints in the sand

October 25, 2008

Footprints in the sand
People hand in hand
Future in the plan
Promises we make
Sometimes fade away
Like footprints in the sand

Love’s a game of chance
I’ve come to understand
What my greatest fear is
Someday you’ll disappear
Like footprints in the sand

But life was meant to live
And love was meant to give
No-one ever said
That you could depend
On whispers to the wind

Love’s a game of chance
I’ve come to understand
What my greatest fear is
Someday you’ll disappear
Like footprints in the sand

So I will build my castle on the sea
And pray that you’ll come back to me
And there I’ll wait faithfully
For your return, your return

Love’s a game of chance
I’ve grown to understand
Hope will keep you near
She will reappear
Like footprints in the sand
In the sand, in the sand


Nothing’s gonna change

October 25, 2008

Nothing’s gonna change
If I had to live my life without you near me
The days would all be empty, the night would seem so long
With you I see forever oh, so clearly
I have been in love before but it never felt this strong
Our dreams are young and we both know
They’ll take us where we want to go
Hold me now, touch me now,
I don’t want to live without you

Nothing’s gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I love you
One thing you can be sure of
I’d never ask for more than your love
Nothing’s gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I love you
The world may change my whole life through
But nothing’s gonna change my love for you

If the road ahead is not so easy
Our love will lead the way for us, like a guiding star
I’ll be there for you if you should need me
You don’t have to change a thing
I love you just the way you are
So come with me and share the view
I’ll help you to see forever through
Hold me now, touch me now
I don’t want to live without you

Nothing’s gonna…


Give me the night

October 25, 2008

Give me the night
When ever dark is fallin’
You know the spirit of the party starts to come alive
Until the day is dawin’
We can throw out all the blues and hit the city lights
Chorus
‘Cause there’s music in the air
And lots of lovin’ ev’ey where
So give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
You need the evening action
A place to dine a glass of wine a little late romance
It’s a chain reaction
You see the people of the world comin’ out to dance
Chorus
So come on out tonight
And we’ll lead the others on ride through paradise
And if you feel all right
We can be lovers
‘Cause I see that starlight look in you eyes
Don’t you know we can fly
Just give me the night
Chorus
Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
And if we stay together
We’ll find the rhythm of the evening takin’ us up high
Never mind the weather
We’ll be dancin’ in the street ’til the morning’ light
Chorus


You don’t know what love is

October 25, 2008

You don’t know what love is
You don’t know what love is
Until you’ve learned the meaning of the blues
Until you’ve loved a love you’ve had to lose
You don’t know what love is

You don’t know how lips hurt
Until you’ve kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you’ve flipped your heart and you have lost
You don’t know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart feels
The thought of reminiscing
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You don’t know how hearts burn
For love that can not live yet never dies
Until you’ve faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don’t know what love is

You don’t know how hearts burn
For love that can not live yet never dies
Until you’ve faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don’t know what love is…..what love is….


Nature boy

October 25, 2008

Nature boy
There was a boy

very strange
enchanted boy;
they say be wander’d very far

very far over land and sea.
A little shy and sad of eye
but very wise
very wise was be.

And then one day
a magic day he passed my way
and while we spoke of many things

fools and kings
this he said to me:
The greatest thing you’ll ever learnis just to love and be loved in return,to be loved in return.

And then one day
