The Places You Find Love

length: 5:10
writer: Clif Magness, Glen Ballard

It was raining when i met you
You were soaking wet
No time to be impressed
I remember so much later on

I knew that you were someone
I would not forget
Everybody's searching, hungry for the glamour
You know too many hearts are in a rush

No matter how you try to
You can't explain
The places you find love
I can't explain it, but i can feel it

All around me
The need to find the place
Where feeling can be safe
It's not money that buys happiness

No, it's not the shine of silver that puts the heart to rest
Everybody's pushing
The clock is always running and
No one ever seems to have enough

And when you least expect it
You come upon the places you find love-love-love
Remember in a flash the feeling can hit you
After all the times that it missed you

Reaching deep inside to find your secret heart, yeah, yeah
Look around you notice you're flying
And for once you're not even trying
City lights below you like a million tiny stars, oh yeah

It's a river never stopping
Winding in and out
But you should never doubt
It will lead you

To the ocean someday
There's no way to fight it
Let it carry you away
Everybody's dreaming waiting for the feeling

That moment when they finally rise above
But it's always in the giving
That gets you to the places you find love-love
Remember in the poorest part of town

Where the sun never reaches the ground
And seeing's not believing
The feeling stays alive-yeah, yeah
Little children laughing and playing

'Cause they haven't learned to start hating
Never giving up-no,
'Cause they still believe in love, sweet love
Love, love, love, love, love

Remember in a flash the feeling can hit you
After all the times that it missed you
Reaching deep inside to find your secret heart-yeah, yeah
Look around you notice you're flying

And for once you're not even trying
City lights below you
Like a million tiny stars
In the poorest part of town

Where the sun never reaches the ground
Seeing's not believing
The feeling stays alive-yeah, yeah
Little children laughing and playing

'Cause they haven't learned to start hating
Never giving up-no
They still believe in love-sweet love
In a flash the feeling can hit you

After all the times that it missed you
Reaching deep inside to find your secret heart, yeah, yeah
Look around you notice you're flying
And for once you're not even trying

City lights below you like a million tiny stars
In the poorest part of town
Where the sun never reaches the ground
And seeing's not believing
The feeling stays alive-year, yeah...

On My Way to You

length: 3:45
lyricist: Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman
composer: Michel Legrand
So often as I wait for sleep
I find myself reciting
The words I've or should have said
Like scenes that need rewriting

The smiles I never answered
Doors perhaps I should have opened
Songs forgotten in the morning
I relive the roles I've played

The tears I may have squandered
The many pipers I have paid
Along the roads I've wandered
Yet all the time I knew it

Love was somewhere out there waiting
Though I may regret a kiss or two
If I had changed a single day
What went amiss or went astray

I may have never found my way to you
If I had changed a single day
What went amiss or went astray
I may have never found my way to you

I wouldn't change a thing that happened
On my way to you...

Till I Loved You

length: 5:11
vocal: Don Johnson
composer: Maury Yeston
lyricist: Maury Yeston
Nothing lived, nothing grew
Till I loved you
Every sky ever gray, never blue
You were my friend, good friend
And sometimes I would wonder
Could the one to save me
Possibly be you?
I was lost, I was blind
Till I loved you
Wouldn't see, couldn't find someone new
You were my friend, dear friend
I held you close to my heart
But I never thought that I'd feel the way I do
Until that certain moment when I loved you
And now I can't ever imagine
My living without you
It seems I spend all of my time
Thinking only about you
Once I dreamed in a dream I would find you
Never thought that the dream would come true
Until that curtain lifted, parted, drifted from you
Until that certain moment when I loved you
Until that certain moment
Certain moment when I loved you
When I loved you
Nothing lived, nothing grew
Till I loved you
Every sky ever gray, never blue
Empty days, empty nights
Sometimes I wonder
Could the one to save me possibly be you?
Ooooohh I was lost, I was blind till I found you
Couldn't see, couldn't find someone new
You came along, stole my heart completely
And I thought, could the one to save me possibly be you?

Love Light

length: 4:33
writer: Carole Bayer Sager, Burt Bacharach
Love light shine on me
Make it last this time
'Cause I think I might find out
That there's no rehearsal

And, I don't want to miss one bit if this is it
Here's my prayer
We can make it last
If we learn to tell the truth

And to trust each other
And be unafraid of what we'll see
With time and love we learn
When we accept each other

That's when our lives can come together
Let him stay by my side
If it lasts this time
Then the shadows of the past

Will remain behind us
And finally we will be free
With time and love we learn
We have this chance to grow

We have this chance to know each other
Time, all we need is time to feel
All of the love inside us
And then our lives will come together

I know with time and love
Shine on both of us tonight
With love and light
Nothing's gonna change our love tonight

With love and light
Shine on me tonight
With time and love...

All I Ask of You (from The Phantom of the Opera)

length: 4:03
vocal: Barbra Streisand
lyricist: Richard Stilgoe, Charles Hart
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
No more talk to darkness
Forget these wide-eyed fears
I'm here
Nothing can harm you
My words will warm and calm you
Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I'm here
With you, beside you
To guard you and to guide you

Say you love me every winter morning
Turn my head with talk of summertime
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That's all I ask of you

Let me be your shelter
Let me be your light
You're safe
No one will find you
Your fears are far behind you

All I want is freedom
A world with no more night
And you
Always beside me
To hold me and to hide me
Then say you'll share with me one love,
One lifetime
Let me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you,
Here beside you
Anywhere you go, let me go too
Christine that's all I ask of you

Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you
Share each day with me,
Each night, each morning
Say you love me (You know I do)
Love me
That's all I ask of you

Anywhere you go, let me go too
Love me
That's all I ask of you

You and Me for Always

length: 3:50
writer: Carole Bayer Sager, Burt Bacharach
Here as I lay beside you, I know
How grateful my heart feels
Knowing that you've come
In my world to stay

Now I know my life has finally begun
That dream, that's promised everyone
Now when the world around me looks gray
I look into your eyes and all the darkness goes

I can find my way
Finally I know I'm never alone
A light inside will lead me home
Remember it's all there is
Remember it's all there was

The answer is right here in our hands
And know if our hearts are true
There's nothing we have to do
You and me for always

Now when I wake each morning I say
No need to look ahead
Leave the past behind
Here's a brand new day

Suddenly my life is perfectly clear
The love we found was always here
Remember it's all there is
Remember it's all there was

The answer is right here in our hands
And know if our hearts are true
There's nothing we have to do
You and me for always

Never ending, never changing
The answer is here in our hands
Always reaching , always climbing
You and me for always

Ever loving, ever lasting
The answer is here in our hands
Always changing, always loving...

Why Let It Go?

length: 4:26
writer: Barry Mason
composer: Alan Hawkshaw
lyricist: Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman
You smiled and you were in my life
I saw my dreams there in your eyes
You touched my hand, you touched my heart
You held me through the night

It felt so right
But love, it isn't all romance
It's filled with clouds and stormy skies
We may have come too close, too fast

But if we really care
So much is there
Why let it go? why let it go?
Why run away

When what we have is so worth fighting for
Why let it go, if every day
We can hide our feelings less
So we can love each other more

Why let it go?
I know that when I'm in your arms
There's no such thing as good goodbyes
'Cause I believe that we have found

A love of heart and mind
So hard to find
Why let it go? why let it go?
Don't run away

It's not easy, but it's worth the fighting for
Why let it go, if every day
We can hide our feelings less
So we can love each other more
Why let it go? why let it go?...

Two People

length: 3:41
writer: Barbra Streisand, Alan Bergman
Two people
Like two children
We're holding back
We're holding on

Two children
Frightened of new places
Of getting lost
Of being found

Running, hiding
Somehow afraid of love
Playing in the sunlight
And shade of love

Games we play too well
Like two children
Isn't it time
Time we throw all our toys away

So that our love can grow
Day by day
We're two people trying to leave
What belongs to some far-off past

Ready to find the love that will last
Are you the one who can free
The child in me...

What Were We Thinking Of

length: 4:29
writer: Antonina Armato
Where did we go wrong
Is it really over
Where does my heart belong
If it’s not with you
We held on to our pride
When we left each other
But what good is pride tonight
When we’re all alone
Why did we give up on us so fast
Isn’t love supposed to last forever
Oh, what were we thinking of
Looking for something better
Reaching for more than love
What were we thinking of
Too late we both discovered
We’re lost without each other
What were we thinking of
Tonight I stay awake
Wanting just to call you
Knowing my heart would break
If you were not home
So, I never call
And you will never answer
You know the saddest part of all
Is I know you’re there
Why do we run from
The arms of love
When we really need each other
More than ever...
Oh, what were we thinking of
Looking for something better
Reaching for more than love
What were we thinking of
Too late we both discovered
We’re lost without each other
What were we thinking of
Oh, both of us thought
We’d find true love with another
Why were we so blind
It was right here all the time
What were we thinking of
Looking for something better
Reaching for more then love
What were we thinking of
Too late we both discovered
We’re lost without each other
What were we thinking of
What were we thinking of
Looking for something better
Reaching for more than love
What were we thinking of
Too late we both discovered
We’re lost without each other
What were we thinking of
What were we thinking of
Yeah! what were we thinking of
What were we thinking of...

Some Good Things Never Last

length: 4:21
composer: Mark Radice
lyricist: Mark Radice
It's three in the morning
You're nowhere in sight
And all that I wanted was
To be with you
Tonight
I've watched love get closer
And then fade away
I've seen you believe in me
I've seen you trying to stay
But what good is holding on
When you know
That all you can think about
Is letting go
They say if you love someone
Then set them free
If they come back again
Then in the end
It was meant to be
I thought we were lovers
I thought we were friends
I guess when reality
Steps in
The dreaming ends
We live for the future
We learn from the past
No matter how hard we try
Some good things never last
All you can think about
Is letting go
Be true to yourself my love
That's all I ever wanted you to be
Just don't forget to smile
When you think of me
I'll reach for the stars
I have got them in sight
There's someone who really needs me
Out there in the night
We'll live for the future
We'll learn form the past
No matter how hard we try
Some good things never last
Why can't they last?

One More Time Around

length: 3:44
writer: Carole Bayer Sager, Burt Bacharach
It was over we had gone our separate ways
There was no one we could blame
People told me love will come again
When you least expect it

It will lift you up the way it did back then
Thought it couldn't happen
And even when I had said next time
I'll never give my heart

'Cause the passion never lasts - someone told me
Love is never gone
Like a light inside you
Someone's going to come along and turn it on

Didn't want to do it
Go for
One more time around
One more time like the old times

I still feel so much inside me
Maybe I'll make it better next time
It all depends on what I find
With one more try

Guess relationships are hard to say the least
'Cause we make the same mistakes
But I've got to try and get it right
Or I'll only end up like the others who get

Stranded in the night
So I'm going to do it
Go for one more time around
One more time like the old times

I still feel so much inside me
Maybe I'll make it better next time
It all depends on what I find
With just one more time around

One more time like the old times
I still feel so much inside me
Maybe we'll make it better next time
It all depends if you and I

Go for one more time around
One more time like the old times
I still feel so much inside me
Maybe I'll make it better next time

It all depends on what I find
With one more try
