Emotion

length: 4:59
composer: Peter Bliss
lyricist: Peter Bliss

Face in the mirror looks the same every morning
I keep looking for a change
Sometimes I wonder am I standing still in time
Tired of doing everything the same old way
Tired of playing all the games that people play
This running round in circles gives me no peace of mind I need to find

I need the emotion
I need to laugh
Sometimes I need to cry
I need the emotion
I need to love so hard
I don't know what to do
And baby, I need you
Oh

Sometimes I need a good old fashioned fight
It doesn't matter If I'm wrong or right
Please don't worry about it
You know how much I care
Sometimes I need to make love all day long
Sometimes I need to hold you in my arms
Let's drift away together
It doesn't matter where
As long as you're there cause I need

I need the emotion
I need to laugh
Sometimes I need to cry
I need the emotion
I need to love so hard
I don't know what to do
And baby , I need you
Oh

Sometimes I need to tear the whole thing down
Sometimes I need to turn it all around
When I put it back together I'll be calling out to you
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

I need the emotion
I need to laugh sometimes I need to cry
Cry

I need the emotion
I need to feel each passing day go by
By
I need the emotion
I need to love so hard I don't know what to do
And baby I need you
I need the emotion
I need the emotion

Yes I do
I need the emotion
I need ya baby
I need, I need, I need emotion
Oh won't ya baby?
I need, I need, I need emotion
Feels so good
I need, I need, I need emotion
Yes I do baby
Oh

I need the emotion
I said emotion
I need, I need, I need emotion
I need, I need, I need emotion
I need, I need, I need emotion
Every day
I need the emotion
Emotion
Every hour
I need emotion baby

Barbra Streisand And Kim Carnes

(Kim)
Don't call him up anymore
Cause I don't wanna hear your voice
I don' t wanna see your face
Answer his door
Make no mistake he's mine he's mine, he's mine

(Barbra)
He only knows how I feel
I only know what he's like
When he needs me
Oh how he needs me
Deep in the night
Make no mistake
He's mine, He's mine, he's mine

(Kim)
Don't get to close when you dance

(Together)
Cause I don't wanna hear from my friends

(Barbra)
You were out on the town
There in his arms ( there in his arms)
There in his arms ( there in his arms)
Don't include him in you dreams ( I wanna be in his dreams)
Cause I don't wanna close my eyes (my eyes)

(Together)
I don't wanna know where he goes
Each might when he leaves ( leaves)
Make no mistake (make no mistake)
He's mine (he's mine) He's mine ( he's mine)
He is mine........

(Kim)
Don't call him up anymore

(Barbra)
Don't call him up anymore.....

Time Machine

length: 4:57
I remember when my voice was never heard
Many listened but they never heard the words
In my mind I can travel back in time
Relive the memories that kept my faith alive
In every heart there's a time machine

If you believe in your memory
Trace every place you've been
You'll know what it means
In every heart beats a time machine
Where you can be what you want to be

Love is your memory
You can relive your life
Looking back on all the changes I have made
I may have stumbled but
I never lost my way

Now I feel all the world is on my side
When I remember there's
A special place inside
In every heart there's a time machine

If you believe in your memory
Trace every place you've been
You know what it means

In every heart beats a time machine
Where you can be what you want to be
Love is your memory

You can relive your life
Now that your eyes are open
You can explore each moment
For you are the only one

That know where your life should lead
In my mind I can travel back in time
Relive the memories that kept my faith alive
Iin every heart there's a time machine
If you believe in your memories
Trace every place you've been you'll know what it means
In every heart beats a time machine
Where you can be what you want to be
Love is your memory

You can relive your life
In every heart there's a time machine
If you believe in your memories
Trace every place you've been you'll know what it means
In every heart there's a time machine
(In every heart beats a time machine)
Where you can be what you want to be
Where you can be what you want to be
(Love is your memory)
In every heart (heart) heart (heart)

Best I Could

length: 4:22
I can't apologize for the way I feel
Cause I've always been honest with you
I've loved you the best I could
In the only way I knew
And If that's not enough I've got nothin' to say
And I'm not even sure that I would
Somedays it was bad and somedays good
But I've loved you the best I could

I need more... I need someone to hold me tonight
Someone there when I turn out the lights
Just to be here with me
I need more...
I need more than you somehow
I need more than your time will allow
I want you as my friend
Why can't you be that now?

You say you need me, then you'd be gone
The times I needed you
Then you'd hold me and say you're sorry
But what else could you do?
Yet I know you really loved me
So it's hard to let go like I should
Let's forget the bad
Remember the good
Cause you loved me the best you could

But I need more
I need someone to hold me tonight
Someone there when I turn out the light
Just to be here with me
I need more, I need more than you somehow
I need more than your time will allow
Remember the times that were good
We both loved the best we could

Where did she touch you,
How did if feel,
Why did you let it begin
What did she whisper and
What did it mean, and
Where do you think it will end?
How long did it last
Do you think it will stop
Did you get to try anything, new
How good was she, honestly
Where did you go and
Who made the very first move, who made the very first move,
Who made the very first move.

You don't have to sneak in the doorway
Just come on into the room
I've been lying in our bed in the dark all alone
And I've been waiting, I've been waiting for you

There's been no reason to move
It's been as still as a tomb
I needed you oh so badly tonight
But I guess you had better things to do

I should have known that it was coming to this
But I must have been blind
I bet you still got a trace of her love in your eyes
And you've still got her eyes on your mind

You swore you'd be with me at 7 o'clock
Now it's a quarter to 3
And whatever you got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn't get it from me
Whatever you got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn't get it from me

I know that you love me
There's no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof
And there are no lies on your body
As I see you undress oh
I just want to get at the truth
I know that you love me
There's no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof
And there are no lies on your body
As I watch you undress
I just want to get at the truth

There are so many thing that I've just just gotta know
You tell me who! You tell me where! You tell me when!
But don't tell me now , I don't need any answers tonight
I just need some love so turn out the lights and
I'll be left in the dark again
I'll be left in the dark again
I'll be left in the dark again
Left in the dark again

I should have known that it was coming to this
But I must have been blind
I bet you still got a trace of her love in you eyes
And you still got her eyes on your mind

You swore you'd be with me at 7 o'clock
Now it's a quarter to 3
And whatever you got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn't get it from me
I guess you couldn't get it from me
But down in my soul, down in my soul
I know
I know that you love me
There's no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof
And there are no lies on your body
As I watch you undress oooooh
I just want to get at the truth

And there are so many things
That I've just got to know
You tell me who! You tell me where!
You tell me when! But don't tell me now
I don't need any answers tonight
I just need some love so turn out the lights and
I'll be left in the dark again

I just need some love
So turn out the lights and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love
So turn out the lights and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love
So turn out the lights and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love
So turn out the light and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love
So turn out the lights and I'll be left in the dark again
Left in the dark again

Heart Don’t Change My Mind

length: 4:57
We said we'd try again but tryin' not enough
Actin' like strangers ain't no way of making love
It's never gonna work, its time we stopped pretending
Time to turn the page, all stories need an ending
It makes no sense to stay
Living my life in yesterday
I'm leaving, I'm leaving,
And I'm begging you
Heart don't change my mind
Oh heart be strong this time
And try to help me tell him goodbye
It'll only bring pain for us to stay
Oh heart, it's hard for you I know
Let me let him go

Don't let me think about how good it was before
I know you'd try anything to keep me from that door
Its hard to leave him when you've loved him for so long now
How can I walk away if he's still holding on now
I've found the strength today
Look at me I can finally say
It's over, It's over
So I'm begging you

Heart don't change my mind
Oh heart be strong this time
And try to help me tell him goodbye
It'll only bring pain for us to stay
Oh heart, it's hard for you I know
Let me let him go

It makes no sense to stay
Sad that it has to end this way
It's over, It's over
Heart don't change my mind
Oh heart be strong this time
And try to help me tell him goodbye
It'll only bring pain for us to stay
Oh heart, it's hard for you I know
Let me let him go

When I Dream

length: 4:32
When I dream
In a world that has no time
In a world that pays no mind
To a heart such as mine
I can be

Out along the stars somewhere
All alone without a care
I can be anything
When I dream
By myself

All I want to do is find what
It's all about
I'm reaching out

Knowing that there must be more
I imagine when I dream
What I've never known
Or felt before
(When I dream)

I can turn reality
Into anything I see
All at once I can be
On the sky or on the ground
Of the earth but not earthbound
I can be anything
When I dream

Thinking back it seems I've
Spent my life
Sacrificing what I felt inside
Never thought I could have in my life
The dreams I have denied
When I dream

I believe there's someone there
Someone else with dreams to share
Someone willing to care

He could be
Out among the stars somewhere
Someone gentle, someone fair
He could be anything

When I dream
When I dream
There's no posibility
That I can't begin to see
There's no voice telling me
Not to be

Out among the stars somewhere
Feeling free, I'm free to dare
And to be anything
When I dream

For beyond the fantasy
And the harsh reality
Suddenly I can see
We could be

Out along the stars somewhere
All alone without a care
We could be anything
When I dream
Oh
Dreamin'
Dreamin'
Dreamin'
Ohh c'mon and dream

You are a step in the right direction
You are a step forward for me
You are a step in the right direction
You are a step forward for me!
We blow hot and cold right into
A heartache

I come toward you and you back away
Well, it's hard to be open, but do it for our sake
Don't let the world get in out way

You are a step in the right direction
You are a step forward for me
You are a step in the right direction
You are a step forward for me!

Our lives are filled with such indecision
Going and comin' in our different ways
Don't run away don't avoid the collision
Let the sparks fill up our days
It's a step in the right direction

You are a step in the right direction
You are a step forward for me
You are a step in the right direction
You are a step forward for me!

Now listen baby, I'm sure glad you came along
But don't push your luck honey
'Cause our love is not that strong

May not be love and it may not be perfect
It may not make our dreams come true
But what good are dreams,
Can't put your arms around them
Let me put my arms around you

You are a step in the right direction
You are a step forward for me
You are a step in the right direction
You are a step forward for me
'Cause I am a step in the right direction
I am a step forward for you
I am a step in the right direction
Come on and take a step or two
Cause you are a step in the right direction

Clear Sailing

length: 3:57
When I was lost, getting tossed
Like a bottle on a stormy sea
Somehow out fortunes crossed
You reached out and rescued me
Like the dark before the dawn
I was only waiting for you to come along
It’s gonna be clear sailing
>from now on

And I used to spend the night
And the night was like an ocean
I was caught up in the tides
Constantly inmotion
But your love for me
Held me like a lifeline
And now I do believe
Oh it’s gonna be clear sailing
With a dream to sail on
Clear sailing from now on

Now I look into your eyes
The color of a quiet sea
Cast my love up on the tide
Watch it return to me
Now I’m feeling fine
I can tell the storm has passed
For the last time
It’s gonna be clear sailing
>from now on

Oh it’s gonna be clear sailing
With a dream to sail on
Clear sailin’
>from now on

Clear sailin’
>from now on

Here We Are at Last

length: 3:20
vocal: Barbra Streisand
composer: Barbra Streisand
lyricist: Richard Baskin
Here we are at last
Children in the dark
Running from the past
Into the unknown

Secrets from the heart
Promises we make
Lips that never part
Until the dawn breaks

I can’t remember feeling this familiar
I see myself becoming his
It frightens me to learn
That love is...

Finally here at last
No place left to hide
Too powerful to fast
To keep it inside

Everything’s so new,
So innocent, so true
We’re reaching for that star,
’cause darling, here we are
Here at last

[instrumental]

I can’t remember feeling this familiar
I feel myself becoming his
It strengthens me to finally see that

Love is here at last
No place left to run
The actors have unmasked
The play has begun

Every moment true
Each day for lovers who
Have never come this far
But darlin’ here we are
Here at last
Here at last...
