Tomorrow

length: 3:01

The sun'll come out tomorrow,
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun
Just thinking about tomorrow

Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow till there's none
When I'm stuck with a day that's gray and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin and say...Oh!

The sun'l1 come out tomorrow,
So you got to hang on till tomorrow, came what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow
You're always a day away

I just stick out my chin and grin and say
The sun'll come out tomorrow
So you got to hang on till tomorrow, came what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow
You're always a day away

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow
You're always a day away
Dah dah dah mm

A Man I Loved

length: 4:03
I'll tell you a story
'bout a man that i loved
He lives in the sky
In the clouds above
He knows every river
Every mountain and stream
He's a gentleman, i tell you,
That lives in my dream
If you don' t believe
What i say is true
Maybe someday he will happen to you
It's like he's always watching over me
I do believe in magic
When it's plain to see
If you don't believe
What i say is true
Maybe someday he will happen to you
Softly he whispers into my ear
The dream is over, but i don't want to hear
No, no, no, no
Softly he whispers into my ear
The dream is over, but i don't want to hear
So, take me, i' m lonely
Take me in your dreams
Please don't leave me waiting here
As long as it seems
If you don't believe
What i say is true
Maybe, baby, someday he will happen to you
Softly he whispers into my ear
The dream is over, but i don't want to hear
But i don't want to hear...i don't want to hear
I don't wanna...i don't want to hear...

I Don't Break Easily

length: 3:57
I took my chances,
Thinking something might be saved.
Growing tired of broken promises
And dreams you never made.

And I wanted to be more than just a friend,
Not knowing I would hurt, so, in the end.
So I swore I'd never call you home again.

Took time to see through all the glitter
That you made.
I was blinded by your fire light
And swept myself away.

And I guess I couldn't bring myself to see
You had taken all the very best of me.
So I'm leaving while there's something left of me.
Just like a child, I keep running back for more.

You know I thought I knew the answers,
'Cause I've been hurt before,
And one more time around won't break me.
You will never see that side of me,
No, no, no, no,
I don't break easily.

I told my service to pick up all my calls,
And I've taken down our photographs
That lined our bedroom walls.
And the outside door no longer has your name.
All your clothes are gone.

My welcome mat's been changed,
But the key's still there,
And I've left the door unchained.
Just like a child, I keep running back for more.

Oh, I thought I knew all the answers,
I've been hurt before,
And just one more time around
Won't break me down.

You will never see that side of me,
No, no, no,
I don't break easily.
No, no, I won't break easily

Love Breakdown

length: 3:38
Would you feel better
If you knew that I still dream about us?
What I wonder, though,
If you think about me too?

They say I'm crazy,
Yes, that's true, for you I just fall to pieces.
When I hear your name I just break down,
It's just a love breakdown.
We had a love, a love breakdown.
Yes, we did, baby!

And I don't understand
When you don't come around.
Tonight, I'm gonna die if I don't get your love,
Tonight, tonight.

Nothing's gonna be right, alone, without you.
Lately, I realize I'm no good without you.
I just fall to pieces.

When it's late at night
I just break down.
It's just my love breakdown.
We had a love

A love breakdown.
Yes, we did, baby,
And I don't understand
When you don't come around.
Tonight, I'm gonna die if I don't get your love.

We had a love
A love breakdown.
Woh, woh, we had a love a love breakdown.
Woh, woh, yes, we did, baby!

You Don't Bring Me Flowers

lyricist: Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman
composer: Alan Bergman, Neil Diamond
You don't bring me flowers
You don't sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When you come through the door
At the end of the day

I remember when
You couldn't wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me
Now after lovin' me late at night
When it's good for you
And you're feelin' alright
Well you just roll over
And turn out the light
And you don't bring me flowers anymore

It used to be so natural
To talk about forever
But "used to be's" don't count anymore
They just lay on the floor
'Til we sweep them away

And baby, I remember
All the things you taught me
I learned how to laugh
And I learned how to cry
Well I leared how to love
Even learned how to lie
You'd think I could learn
How to tell you goodbye
'Cause you don't bring me flowers anymore

Honey Can I Put on Your Clothes

length: 5:29
Honey, honey, can I put on your clothes?
Because they feel so good,
And they feel like you.
Oh, won't you please let me?
Because they get to me,
They touch me and then move me.

I get to thinking I won't be needin'
Anything more to keep me warm.
I feel the feeling of you
Al1 the way through.
No other feeling will ever do.

Honey, honey,
Can I put on your clothes?
Because they feel so good,
And they feel like you.

They're just like old friends
When we're together.
They comfort me and soothe me.
They're not brand new.

They're a little worn through,
But they're comfy and roomy.
They do something to me,
And when I stay at home,
And you're far away,
I won' t be lonely all through the day.

Honey, honey,
Can I put on your clothes?
Because they feel so good,
And they feel like you.

I feel the feeling of you
All the day through.
No other feeling will ever do.

Honey, honey,
Can I put on your clothes?
Because they feel so good,
And they feel like you,
Honey, honey, honey, hum

One More Night

length: 3:14
composer: Stephen Bishop
lyricist: Stephen Bishop
Every one keeps telling me I'm something I'm not
They fill me with questions, they tear me apart
But through it all it was you who pulled me out
Please don't leave me now
Just give me one more night to hold you, one more night
Give me one more night to have you near
There's a man at the train stop
With tears in his eyes
Reminds me of so long ago
When I was able to cry
Now I'm strong
Slip away and laugh along
With anyone who needs someone blue
Just give me one more night to hold you
One more night
Give me one more night to have you near
What can I say to make you stay?
I'd do anything; I' d give everything
To have just one more night to hold you
One more night
Give me one,
Give me one more night to have you...to have you one more night...

Stay Away

length: 3:47
Stay away leave me alone
Stay away from my door
'Cause you'll hurt me again
Like you hurt me before
Don't want no excuses
I don't want no more lies
I don't like crying
So I keep it inside

Do me a favor, for god's sake
Please, stay away, stay away

Stay away out of my dreams
Stay away from my nights
You're there in the darkness
So I need no other lights
I don't want no whisky
'Cause it brings back the pain
Makes me call you at midnight
And beg you to come back again

Do me a favor, for god's sake
Please, stay away, stay away

'Cause time is just too short
To waste it on regrets
They say it heals a broken heart
That's waiting to forget
Oh, stay away, leave me alone
Stay away from my door
'Cause you'll hurt me again
Like you hurt me before

But if you should need me
Don't think it's all right
Don't think you can call me up
In the middle of some lonely night
'Cause if I see you
I' m afraid I might say
Don't stay away
So, stay away

Deep in the Night

length: 3:12
Deep in the night, I remember
There I am reaching for you
Longing to turn to you
That's all I want oh so much
Deep in the night I need you
To touch me
Deep in the night, I wait for daylight
Daytimes I always get through
But when the sun goes down
That's when I feel
I feel oh so alone
Deep in the night I need you
To hold me

Read a book and I think about you
Put it down and I think about you
I make some coffee and I think about you
Wash up the cup and I think about you
Wind the clock and I think about you
Turn on the light and I think about you
When I punch the pillow and I think about you

Deep in the night I feel lonely
Why didn't I try someone new?
It didn't work out I know
But I know but I know
Because I try I try
Deep in the night
I need you beside me
Deep deep in the night

Songbird

length: 3:47
producer: Gary Klein
vocal: Barbra Streisand
writer: Stephen Nelson, David Wolfert
Songbird sings from the heart
Each word can tear you apart
I sing you sing along
You find your life in my song
When you need the strength to carry on

You've got me to turn to
With the songs that I sing
And the magic they bring
They've helped you be strong now

The song sets you free
But who sings for me
I'm all alone now
Who sings for songbird

Sometimes when I'm all alone
I sing my saddest song
Lonely and no one can see
This time the song is for me
I can touch your secret place inside

And still you don't know me
With the songs that I sing
And the magic they bring
You've learned to be strong now

My song sets you free
But who sings for me
I'm all alone now
Where is my songbird
Where is my songbird
Who sings his songs for me
