Forever, For Always, For Love - Lyrics

I sing this song
To remind myself that

There was a time when I
Didn't have no one
Didn't have no love
Do you remember
The love that we once had
Well, if I had the chance to love you again
I would make your heart forget I was ever bad
If we forgive the past
I know this time love wold last
Forever, for always, for love
I'm not coming home anymore
Does it matter?
Well, if I had the chance to hold you again
I would fill your heart with joy
And make you know that I'm the only one for you
Let's throw the bad memories out
And make this the first day of our
Forever, for always, for love

I'd be a fool to ever change
If she said she loves the way I, I am
I'd be a fool to ever change
If she said she loves the way I am
It's gonna be starting here, starting now Yeah Yeah Yeah
Forever, for always, for love

Do it for the ones we love
And let no one
Forever, for always for love
In love
Can't help myself
Comes from my heart

Since I Lost My Baby - Lyrics

The sun is shining, there's plenty of light (oh yeah)
A new day is dawning, sunny and bright (oh yeah)
But after I've been crying all night
The sun is cold, and the new day seems old
Since I lost my baby. (Since I lost my baby.)
Oh, since I lost my baby. (Oh, since I lost my baby.)

The birds are singing and the children are playing
There's plenty of work and the bosses are paying
Not a sad word should a young heart be saying
But fun is a bore and with money I'm poor.

Since I lost my baby. (Since I lost my baby.)
Oh, since I lost my baby. (Oh, since I lost my baby.)
Next time I'll be kinder (Next time I'll be kinder)
Won't you please help me find her (Won't you please help me find her)
Someone just remind her (Someone just remind her)
Of this love she left behind her (Of this love she left behind her)
Till I find her I'll be trying ta (Till I find her I'll be trying ta)
Everyday I'm more inclined ta
Find her
Inclined ta
Find her
Inclined ta find my baby
Been looking everywhere (ba--by)
Baby, I really, really care!

Oh, determination is fading fast (oh yeah)
Inspiration is a thing of the past (oh yeah)
Can't see how my hope's gonna last
Good things are bad and what's happy is sad

Since I lost my baby. (Since I lost my baby.)
Oh, since I lost my baby. (Oh, since I lost my baby.)
I feel so bad (since I lost my baby)
I feel so sad (since I lost my baby)
Everything is wrong
This heart is hard to carry on (since I lost my baby)
I'm lost as can be (since I lost my baby)
What's gonna happen to me?

Street Life - Lyrics

I play the street life
Because there's no place I can go
Street life
And it's the only life I know
Street life
And there's a thousand parts to play
Street life
Until you play your life away

You let the people see
Just who you want to be
And every night you shine
just like a super star
That's how the life is played
A ten cent Masquerade
You dress, and walk, and talk
you're who you think you are

Street life
You can run away from time
Street life
For a nickel and a dime
Street life
But you better not get old
Street life
Or you're gonna feel the cold

There's always love for sale
A grown-up fairy tale
Prince charming always smiles
behind a silver spoon
And if you keep it young
Your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way
beneath the silver moon

Drift Away - Lyrics

Day after day I'm more confused
So I look for the light in the pouring rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame

Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Beginning to think that I'm wastin' time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
I'm countin' on you to carry me through

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitar's comin' through to soothe me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You help me along makin' me strong

Goin' up in smoke - Lyrics

Talked to my friend again today
Forty days and forty nights
It rained all over the world
To be exact
[to be exact]

sinners played and disobeyed
the Word coming down,
that’s a fact
[that’s a fact]

Some people take it for a joke
they can’t understand
They nailed Our Saviour to the cross
But he told them all
He’d rise again, rise again!
I talked to my friend again today
This is what he had to say:
You’re going up in smoke
going up in smoke
going up in smoke
and we ain’t got no hope
we’re going up in smoke

I talked to my friuend again today
This is what he had to say:
You’re going up in smoke
going up in smoke
going up in smoke
and we ain’t got no hope
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!....

I talked to my friend again today
don’t be afraid by what I say
don’t wait ‘till Judgement Day
to start to pray…
stop the hey! killing now
We’ll all have to go anyhow
Everyone’s having tons of fun
Who’s gonna take the blame?
He let His Son get close to earth
So we all go up
In bright of day
In bright of day

I talked to my friend again today
This is what he had to say:
You’re going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
and we ain’t got no hope
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!....

You’re going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
and we ain’t got no hope
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!
Oh, I talked to my friend today….

Music break

Everybody’s having tons of fun
Who’s gonna take the blame?
He let His Son Come to earth
So we all go up
In bright of day
In bright of day

I talked to my friend again today
This is what he had to say:
You’re going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
and we ain’t got no hope
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!....

You’re going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
and we ain’t got no hope,
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!
I talked to my friend today….

going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
and we ain’t got no hope,
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!

going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
and we ain’t got no hope,
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
and we ain’t got no hope,
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!

Going, going…
Yeah, Sinners prayed, disobeyed,
The word coming down….

Going, ooohh, yeah…
Everyone’s having tons of fun….
Who’s gonna take the blame?...

Chorus: (Repeat x 5)
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
going up in smoke,
and we ain’t got no hope,
‘cause we’re going up in smoke!

Love Won't Let Me Wait - Lyrics

The time is right
You hold me tight
And love is got me high

Please tell me, yes
And don't say no, honey not tonight
I need to have you next to me
In more ways than one
And I refuse to leave
'Till I see the morning sun
Creep through your window pane
'Cause love won't let me wait
(Not one more minute, baby)

The time is right
Turned down the lights and take my hand
We will take a flight
And spend the night in a wonderland
Now move a little close to me
You owe it to yourself
And I will selfishly
Take a little for myself
And it's because of you
That love won't let me wait

(No, listen girl)

I need your love so desperately
And only you can set me free
When I make love to you
We will explode in ecstacy
And I won't take the blame
'Cause love won't let me wait, no
Love won't let me wait (my temperature's rising)
Love won't let me wait (cause your so tantalizing)

(Oh, listen girl)

Love won't let me wait

If Only You Knew-Lyrics

I must have rehearsed my lines
A thousand times
Until I had them memorized
But when I get up the nerve
To tell you, the words
Just never seem to come out right

(Chorus:)
If only you knew
How much I do
Do love you
If only you knew
How much I do
Do need you

I dream of moments we share
But you're not there
I'm living in a fantasy
'Cause you don't even suspect
Could prob'ly care less
About the changes I've been going through

(Repeat chorus)

No, you don't even suspect
Could prob'ly care less
About the changes I've been going through

(Repeat chorus until fade)

Baby, I'm Yours-Lyrics

Baby, I'm yours (baby, I'm yours)
And I'll be yours (yours) until the stars fall from the sky,
Yours (yours) until the rivers all run dry
In other words, until I die

Baby, I'm yours (baby, I'm yours)
And I'll be yours (yours) until the sun no longer shines,
Yours (yours) until the poets run out of rhyme
In other words, until the end of time

I'm gonna stay right here by your side,
Do my best to keep you satisfied
Nothin' in the world can drive me away
'Cause every day, you'll hear me say

Baby, I'm yours (baby, I'm yours)
And I'll be yours (yours) until two and two is three,
Yours (yours) until the mountains crumble to the sea
In other words, until eternity

Baby, I'm yours
'Til the stars fall from the sky
Baby, I'm yours
'Til the rivers all run dry
Baby, I'm yours
'Til the poets run out of rhyme
(fade out)

I Ain't Got To Love Nobody Else-Lyrics

I Ain't Got To Love Nobody Else
I Ain't Got To Love Nobody Else
I Got You

If the whole world turned its back on me,
I wouldn't lose a thing, oh no,
Because I've got my baby,
And to me the girl means every-everything, yeah

I Ain't Got To Love Nobody Else
I Ain't Got To Love Nobody Else
I Got You

Don't need no friends,
I don't need no friends at all

I Got You

If the 10 most beautiful women in the world,
if they wanted me,

Don't you know, I Ain't Got To Love Nobody Else . . .
