Oh Baby, oh baby, oh baby
I see myself in your face, a reflection of pain
Somebody made you cry over and over again
Still you and I made it through all of this for a reason
Yes, we did
Could it be that we created affair for all seasons

'Cause you and I were meant to be lovers
The search is over for us, there's no other
We're finally at the rainbow's end
Baby, together we'll mend all the cracks in our heart
And just love all the hurt away
(Love the hurt away)

Woman, you are the thing that I hoped and I prayed for
You gave your love and I'm happy like never before
Love and I love it
You be the strength and I'll be your shoulder to lean on
You can lean on my shoulder
Building a world and fill our whole place with our love songs

'Cause you and I were meant to be lovers
The search is over for us, there's no other
We're finally at the rainbow's end
Baby, together we'll mend all the cracks in our heart
And love all the hurt away

'Cause you and I were meant to be lovers
The search is over for us, there's no other
We're finally at the rainbow's end
Baby, together we'll mend all the cracks in our heart
And just love all the hurt away
(Love the hurt away)

Love all the hurt away
(Love the hurt away)
And love all the hurt away
(Love the hurt away)

Yes, we're gonna love
We're gonna love, baby
Yes, we're gonna love all the hurt, baby
We're gonna love, love, love, love, love, love
(Love the hurt away)
All the hurt away

Lean on me when times are bad

In a river of trouble and about to drown

People workin' night and day
You need to take some time out to get away
Life is just a one way ride
There ain't no second chance that you can try

Can't you see all the fun is free?
So, come on out we're livin' in the streets tonight

Yeah, I know you sure feelin' low
It's time to get on up and steal the show
Leave your worries all behind
You've got to make your smile the bottom line

[Chorus]
Can't you see all the fun is free?
So, come on out we're livin' in the streets tonight

Do just what you want to do, you know that you can try
Get the groove and take it to the sky, here on dancin' night

[Chorus]

Do just what you want to do, let no one pull you down
Join the party, people let it last, all night to party

Spread the feelin' through the land
We've got to share this action while we can
No more talkin', no more chat
We're gonna make this evenin' come alive

[Chorus]

Livin' in the streets tonight, livin' in the streets tonight

Livin' in the streets tonight
Come on out, we'll smoke this town together
Livin' in the streets tonight
Come on out, we'll smoke this town together

Livin' in the streets tonight
Come on out, we'll smoke this town together
Livin' in the streets tonight
Come on out, we'll smoke this town together

Livin' in the streets tonight
Come on, out we'll smoke this town together

Starlight, star bright, falling star that I'm seein' tonight

Time is rollin' on and I, I'm the one who's wrong
I'm the one should be movin' on, oh babe
A heart can only stand so much
It needs to touch someone, someone

So, it's up to you, do you love me too?
I get so confused when you throw excuses my way, oh baby
I need your love to hang on
Please tell me that love ain't gone forever

(There's a star for everyone who's lost)
Where is my rainbow, where is my sunny day?
(There's a star for everyone who's lost)
Where is the fantasy, who took the dream away?
(There's a star for everyone)
Where is my star, who took the dream away?

Baby, every word you say always seems touche
So that I'll be makin' my way back to you
Please tell me this love for you is really shared by two

(There's a star for everyone who's lost)
Where is my rainbow, where is my sunny day
(There's a star for everyone who's lost)
Where is the fantasy, who took my dream away
(There's a star for everyone)
Where is my star? Who took the dream, who took the dream away?

Tried to find the reasons, patience wears thin
I tried to slow the seasons
But I know some day I will win, I will win

There's a star for everyone who's lost
There's a star for everyone who's lost
There's a star for everyone

Where is my rainbow, where is my sunny day?
Who took my star away, who took the dream?
Where is my rainbow, where is my sunny day?
Who took my star away, who took the dream?

Where is my rainbow, where is my sunny day?
Who took my star away, who took the dream?
Where is my rainbow, where is my sunny day?
Who took my star away, who took the dream?
Where is my rainbow?

No, you can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,

I saw her today at the reception,
A glass of wine in her hand.
I knew she was gonna meet her connection,
At her feet was a footloose man.
You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes, you might find,
You get what you need.
Aww, yeah. Hey, hey.

And I went down to the demonstration,
To get my fair share of abuse.
Singin', "We're gonna vent our frustration,
If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse."
Sing it to me, honey.
(You can't always get what you want,)
(You can't always get what you want,)
(You can't always get what you want,)
But if you try sometimes, well, you just might find,
You get what you need.
Ahhh, baby, yeah, ahh, yeah.

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore,
To get your prescription filled.
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy,
And man, did he look pretty ill.
We decided that we would have a soda,
My favorite flavor, cherry red3.
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy,
Yeh, and he said one word to me,
And that was "dead." I said to him,
(You can't always get what you want,) oh, no.
(You can't always get what you want,) tell ya, baby.
(You can't always get what you want,) no.
But if you try sometimes, you just might find, ump, ump,
You get what you need.
Oh, yes, whoo!

You get what you need, yeah, ow, baby, oh yeah.

I saw her today at the reception,
In her glass was a bleeding man.
She was practiced at the art of deception,
Well, I could tell by her blood-stained hands.
Say it!
(You can't always get what you want,)
(You can't always get what you want,)
(You can't always get what you want,)
But if you try sometimes, you j-just might find,
You just might find,
You get what you need.


Ahh, (you can't always get what you want), no, no, baby.
(You can't always get what you want), tell me about it,
(You can't always get what you want), mmm,
But if you try sometimes, you j-just might find,
You just might find,
That you get what you need

I can't cover up my feelings
In the name of love
Or play it safe
For a while that was easy
And if living for myself
Is what I'm guilty of
Go on and sentence me
I'll still be free

It's my turn
To see what I can see
I hope you'll understand
This time's just for me

Because it's my turn
With no apologies
I've given up the truth
To those I've tried to please

But now it's my turn
If I don't have all the answers
At least I know I'll take my share of chances
Ain't no use of holding of
When nothing stays the same

So I'll let it rain
'Cause the rain ain't gonna hurt me
And I'll let you go
'Though I know it won't be easy

It's my turn
With no more room for lies
For years I'd seen my life
Through someone else's eyes

And now it's my turn
To try and find my way
And if I should get lost
At least I'll own today

It's my turn
Yes, it's my turn
And there ain't no use in holding of
When nothing stays the same

So I'll let it rain
'Cause the rain ain't gonna hurt me
And I'll let you go
'Though I know it won't be easy

It's my turn
To see what I can see
I hope you'll understand
This time's just for me

Because it's my turn
To turn and say good-bye
I sure would like to know
That you're still on my side

Because it's my turn
It's my turn

It's my turn
To start from number one
Trying to undo
Some damage that's been done

But now it's my turn
To reach and touch the sky
No one's gonna say
At least I didn't try

It's my turn
Yes, it's my turn
It's my turn
It's my turn
It's my turn

I would like to see a show of hands
Nothin' concealed, roll up your sleeve
Nothin' up my [Incomprehensible] except my heart
And I believe we've come apart

I would like to see you play your cards
Reveal your hands and show your heart
Maybe we could get it back

With truth and honesty that's what we need to hold on
To the good stuff we believe in
Before we land up loose and sad and free
Before we find that it's gone
We could pull it back together, truth and honesty
Open up your hands, show me your heart

Let's stay up till dawn and talk it out
Nothin' concealed, no alibi, retunin' to light
Before we start, then all we do is fall apart
If I can see the sunlight in your eyes

Then maybe we all could shine, yeah
Maybe we could get it back, oh baby, yeah baby

Oh, truth and honesty that is what we need to hold on
To the good stuff we believe in
Before we land up loose, sad and free
Before we find out all that is gone
We could pull it back together with truth and honesty, oh
Open up your hands, show me your heart

Truth and honesty, oh, that's what we need to hold on
To the good stuff we believe in
Before we land up loose and sad and free
Before we find out that it's gone
We could pull it back together, truth and honesty

Truth and honesty, you know what we need, sure enough within
To the good stuff, the good stuff baby
You got to be real, you got to be real, you got to be sugar
To the good stuff we believe in, you got to, you got to

When I talk to you, you seem so confused

Your direction is not clear, love in your life you'll never [Incomprehensible]
When I talk to you this way, I leave now only one thing to say

Someday you'll find it
(Search on)
I know you'll find it

You've been hurt by love and it's changed the way you feel
