I've dreamed of you
Always feeling you
Were there
And all my life
I have searched for you
Everywhere
I caught your smile
In the morning sun
I heard your whisper
On the breeze of night
I prayed one day
That your arms would hold me tight
And just when I
Thought love had passed me by
We met
That first look
In your eyes
I can't forget
You melted me
With your tender touch
I felt all fear and sorrow
Slip away
Now here we stand
Hand in hand
This blessed day
I promise you
As I give to you
My heart
That nothing in this world
Shall keep us apart
Come happily ever after be
The man I'll love
Until the very end
I've dreamed of you
My great love
And my best friend
For god must know
How I love you so
He's blessed us here today
As man and wife
Come dream with me
As I've dreamed of you
All my life
Come dream with me
As I've dreamed of you
All my life

It's a funny thing.
I look at you.
I get a thrill
I never knew.

Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
Here we are at last.
It's like a dream.

The two of us
A perfect team.
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?

Imagine all the lonely years we've wasted.
Me with the neighbors.
You at silly labors.
What joys untasted.

My nights were sour,
Spent with Schopenhauer
Let's forget the past.
Let's both agree

That I'm for you
And you're for me.
And it's such a pity
We never, never met before.

Imagine all the years we've wasted.
Fishing for salmon
Losing at backgammon.
What joys untasted.

Me at the Prado,
You in Colorado.
Happiest of girls I'm sure to be
If only you would say to me

That it's such a pity
We never met before.
What an awful pity
We never, never met before.

Make believe we've landed
On a desert island
Bathe me in the waters
Warm in the moonlight
Taste me with your kisses
Find my secret places
Touch me till I tremble
Free my wings for flying
And catch me when I'm falling
Keep your arms around me
Like there's no tomorrow
Let me know you love me
On our little island
Not a soul can see us
Show me how to love you
Teach me how to please you
Lay your dreams beside me
Only stars will listen
To our cries and whispers
You were made to love me
And I was made to love you
Keep your arms around me
Lose yourself inside me
Make it last forever

I can see the island
Shining in the distance
Now we're getting closer
Keep your arms around me
Oh now we're almost there
Oooooh?

On our little island
Not a soul can hear us
Silently exchanging
Fantasies and feelings
Endlessly exploring
Learning one another
Till the morning finds us
You were made to love me
And I was made to love you
Keep your arms around me
Lose yourself completely
Make it last forever

I can see the island
Shining there before us
Now we're getting closer
Just keep your arms around me
Come my love, we're there?.

I look at you and there it is.
The ultimate in where it is
And realize how rare it is
This finding your love.
You try so many arms
When you are lonely.
To find the one and only.
One day you turn and he's there.
Amazing how serene it is.
The shade of evergreen, it is.
Exactly what we mean, it is.
And knew it would be.
When love like ours arrives
We guard it with our lives.
Whatever goes astray
When a rainy day comes around
A love like ours will keep us safe and sound.
(humming)
When love like ours arrives
We guard it with our lives.
Whatever goes astray
What rainy day comes around
Love like ours will keep us safe and sound.

When I fall, you're my place to land.
I lose my touch, you're my hands,
The one I hold on to.
If you run out of reason to try
I'll love enough for both you and I
I'll be the one you can run to.
Barbra
I'd rather go through any pain love puts us through
Than to spend one day without you by my side.
Both
If you ever leave me, will you take me with you?
If you're ever lonely, I want to be lonely too.
My home's beside you, no matter where you may go.
My love's inside you, even more than you know.

Barbra
In a world of anger and lies
I find peace in your eyes
A flame in the darkness.

Both
Ooh, And through all space and time
'Til every star refuses to shine

Barbra
You know where my heart is.
I'd rather go through any pain love puts us through

Both
Than to spend one day without you by my side
If you ever leave me, will you take me with you?
If you're ever lonely, I want to be lonely too, Woah.
My home's beside you, no matter where you may go.

Barbra
Where you may go

Both
My love's inside you, even more than you know.

And I can't remember life without you
The way it used to be
Feels like a million years away.

Vince
Well Hold me 'til the angels sing.

Barbra
Tell me every little thing.

Both
Promise me forever from this day

If you ever leave me, will you take me with you?
If you're ever lonely, I want to be lonely too, Woah.
My home's beside you, no matter where you may go.

Vince
Where you may go

Both
My love's inside you, even more than you know.

Barbra
Even more than you know.

Vince
Even more than you know.

Both
Even more than you know.
Even more than you know.

Some folks got nothin' but troubles
So little joy in their lives.
But wherever we go
Happiness follows.
We must be lovin' right.
It might be the way I adore you.
Or the way that you hold me tight.
I don't know the reason
But I'm believin'
We must be lovin' right

All of our friends say
Love fades away with time.
But I know they're wrong
'Cause they've never known
A love like yours and mine.

So if the whole world goes crazy
Let everyone else fuss and fight.
When all's said and done
We'll be the lucky ones.
We must be lovin' right.

Some folks got nothin' but troubles.
Oh so little joy in their lives.
But wherever we go
Happiness follows.
We must be lovin' right.
We must be lovin' right.

If I never met you
If I never saw your face
This world, this world would be a colder place, I bet.
If we'd never met...
If I never met you
If I never knew your love
My life, my life might be a sad song of regret.
If we'd never met...
But we said one "hello."
And look at how the world begins to spin
Look at how the shadows disappear
Now that you are here.
If I never met you
If I never felt your kiss
My days, my nights would not be filled like this, it's true.
I don't know who I'd love
I don't know what I'd do if I never met you.
Just look at how the shadows disappear
Now that you are here.
If I never met you
If I never felt your kiss
My days, my nights would be filled like this, it's true.
I don't know who I'd love
I don't know what I'd do
If I never met you.
I don't know who I'd love
I don't know what I'd do
If I never met you.
"we must be loving right"
Some folks got nothin' but troubles
So little joy in their lives.
But wherever we go
Happiness follows.
We must be lovin' right.
It might be the way I adore you.
Or the way that you hold me tight.
I don't know the reason
But I'm believin'
We must be lovin' right

A love like yours and mine.

We must be lovin' right.

It must be you
Makin' me feel things I can't explain
For some reason I'm just laughin' at the rain
I can't believe
Who I am has changed so suddenly
I'm doin' things I never thought I'd do
This is not like me
It must be you

It must be love
Nothin' else could turn me upside down
Or plant my feet so firmly on the ground
What's happening
Everything I say I want to sing
Everything I've dreamed is coming true
What's this feeling in my heart
It must be you

Hold me now like this forever
And let this moment go on endlessly
?Cause I'm alive when you're beside me
That's how I know we're how it's supposed to be

At last my heart is ready.
This time I can believe
That love has truly found me.
How sweetly love surrounds me.
You’re like a glimpse of heaven,
A blessing I’ve received.
I’ll give you my tomorrows.
But even now I can see...

Just one lifetime
Won’t be enough time for us.
We need more
For all this love.
Just one lifetime
Can’t be enough time for us.
We need more
For all this love.

What you have given to me
Is better but a dream.
There’s no need for pretending
You’re my happy ending.
So I will hold you closer
With all the love in me
And wish we had forever
For even now I can see...

Just one lifetime
Won’t be enough time for us.
We need more
For all this love.
Just one lifetime
Can never be enough time.
We need more
For all this love.

I prayed my heart would lead me
To find a love somewhere.
It’s taken me a lifetime
To find you waiting for me there.

Just one lifetime
Won’t be enough time for us.
We need more
For all this love.
Just one lifetime
And all that’s waiting for us
We want more
For all...
For all this love.

If i didn't love you
I'd be safe from harm.
I would never find myself
Lost inside your arms.
If i didn't love you
I'd never feel the pain
Of sunny days without you
Drowning in the rain.
If i didn't love you

If i didn't love you
Peace would rule the day
All the dark and out would surely go away.
If i didn't love you
I wouldn't pay the cost
Of living every endless day
If our love is lost.
If i didn't love you
If i didn't love you

And yet you make me breathless
At the way you move
I never knew that i
Could ever love the way we do.
I don't know how you reach me
In that place in my heart
Belonging to only you.

If i didn't love you
I wouldn't lose control
The danger loving brings a word
Never touch my soul.
If i didn't love you
Perhaps i wouldn't die.
If you should ever say to me
"i'm sorry, goodbye."
If i didn't love you
How can there be music
In the way you touch?
I can't believe that somehow
I believe in you so much.
Now you've come and taught me
How to give you my heart.
And make me feel at last
That the end will never start.
You're the only reason
I'm not afraid to fall.
For if i didn't love you
If i didn't love you
I wouldn't love at all.

composer: Michel Legrand
Wait before we take another breath.
We've lived another moment of our lives.
And now it's fast becoming then.

Wait before you take your lips from mine.
How quickly where we are is where we've been.
And give is given.

Once before I knew that I'd be yours
A moment didn't seem a thing at all.
Just like a penny at a fair.

Once I never dreamed there'd come a time
When time would need another day
Another week, another year with you.
Forever doesn't mean forever anymore.

Wait before we take another breath,
Before you take your lips away from mine,
And where we are is where we've been.

Oh wait...
When you're in love the way we are,
When every kiss and every touch,
And every night is like a dream come true
It's then you realize how small forever is.
As I now I do.
That's why I treasure all the moments of my life
With you.

I know he's around
When the sky and the ground started ringing.

I know that he's near
By the thunder i hear in advance.

His words, his words alone are the words
That can start my heart singing.
And his is the only music that makes me dance.

He'll sleep and he'll rise
In the light of two eyes that adore him.

Bore him it might
But he won't leave my sight for a glance.

In every way, everyday i need less of myself.
I need more him.
More him.
'cause his is the only music that makes me dance.

Bore him it might
But he won't leave my sight for a glance.
In every way, everyday i need less of myself.
And i need more him.
More him.
'cause his is the only music that makes me dance.
Yes his is the only music that makes me dance.
