We had the right love
At the wrong time
Guess I always knew inside
I wouldn't have you for a long time

Those dreams of yours
Are shining on distant shores
And if they're calling you away
I have no right to make you stay,

But somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours
Will come to see
That you belong with me

Sometimes goodbyes are not forever
It doesn't matter if you're gone
I still believe in us together
I understand more than you think I can
You have to go out on your own
So you can find your way back home

* and somewhere down the road

Letting go is just another way to say
I'll always love you so

We had the right love
At the wrong time
Maybe we've only just begun
Maybe the best is yet to come

Cause somewhere down the road

I'm singin' to the world, it's time we let the spirit come in
Let it come on in
I'm singin' to the world, everybody's caught in the spin
Look at where we've been
We've been runnin' around, year after year
Blinded with pride, blinded with fear

But it's daybreak, if you want to believe
It can be daybreak, ain't no time to grieve
Said it's daybreak if you'll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine
All around the world (sing it to the world, sing, sing)
Play it, girl (sing it to the world, sing, sing)

Singin' to the world, what's the point in puttin' it down?
There's so much love to share
I'm singin' to the world, don't you see it all comes around?
The feeling's everywhere
We've been closin' our eyes, day after day
Covered in clouds, losin' our way

Hey, but it's daybreak
If you want to believe, it can be daybreak
Ain't no time to grieve
Said it's daybreak, if you'll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine
All around the world (gotta sing, sing it to the world)

Ya sound great!!
(Gotta sing, sing it to the world)

Yes, and it's daybreak
If you want to believe, it can be daybreak
Ain't no time to grieve
Said it's daybreak, if you'll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine
All around the world (let's sing, sing it to the world)
Let it shine, shine, shine
All around the world (sing it to the world, sing, sing)
(Sing it to the world, sing, sing)
Said it's daybreak

Can ya feel it? It's daybreak
Can ya see it? It's daybreak

"Somebody yell "One more time!" Ya may as well go all the way."
"One more time!"

Yes, and it's daybreak
If you want to believe, it can be daybreak
Ain't no time to grieve
Said it's daybreak, if you'll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine
All around the world (let's sing, sing it to the world)
C'mon and let it shine, shine, shine
All around the world (sing it to the world, sing, sing)

Around the world (sing it to the world, sing, sing to the world!)

(Doot, doot, doot doo, yeah)
(Doot, doot, doot doo, yeah)

Well, not too long ago in 1944
When every mother's son was goin' off to war
They had to lift they spirits high (High)
For Uncle Sam, motherhood and apple pie
Instead of spendin' money that they didn't have
In hot spots in the Bronx
They went to hear the kind of jazz
You hear in funky honky tonks

[Chorus:]
It made you want to
Jump (Jump), shout (Shout), knock yourself out
A boogie-woogie beat is what I'm talkin' about
If you had the heebie-jeebies you could dance away
To the boogie-woogie music the piano man was playin'
You could jump (Jump), shout (Shout), knock yourself out
A boogie-woogie beat is what I'm talkin' about
You could pull a switcheroonie if you felt low down
With the boogie-woogie beat of a piano man who's goin' to town

(Doot, doot, doot doo, yeah)
(Doot, doot, doot doo, yeah)

It had the kind of rhythm that would fill the hall
The plinkin' and the plunkin' drove 'em up the wall
And they would dance and drink their gin (Yeah)
And when the fuzz (Fuzz) buzzed (Buzzed), they'd join in
So everybody partied 'till the cows came home
'cause that's what boogie's for
And every night that dump would jump (Jump, jump)
And keep 'em comin' back for more

[Chorus]

(doot, doot, doot doo, yeah)
(doot, doot, doot doo, yeah)

It made you want to
Jump (Jump), shout (Shout)
(Foo der acka sacki)
Want to jump (Jump), shout (Shout)
(Slip the talcum to me Malcolm)
You want to jump (Jump), shout (Shout)
(Floy doy, floy doy)
To the boogie-woogie music the piano man was playin'

You could jump (Jump), shout (Shout), knock yourself out
A boogie-woogie beat is what I'm talkin' about
You could pull a switcheroonie if you felt low down
To the boogie-woogie beat of a piano, ha ha ha ha ha, ha

(Doot, doot, doot doo, yeah)
(Doot, doot, doot doo, yeah)
(Shake it, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Shake it, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Shake it, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Shake it, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Shake it, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Shake it, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Shake it, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Last night I waved goodbye, now it seems years
I'm back in the city where nothing is clear
But thoughts of me holding you, bringing us near

And tell me, when will our eyes meet?
When can I touch you?
When will this strong yearning end?
And when will I hold you again

Time in New England took me away
To long rocky beaches and you by the bay
We started a story whose end must now wait

And tell me, when will our eyes meet?
When can I touch you?
When will this strong yearning end?
And when will I hold you again

I feel the change comin', I feel the wind blow
I feel brave and daring, I feel my blood flow
With you I could bring out all the love that I have
With you there's a heaven, so earth ain't so bad

And tell me, when will our eyes meet?
When can I touch you?
When will this strong yearning end?

Christy wants a millionaire, a miracle in the rain
Everybody's lookin' to find their heaven, never come back again
People keep searchin' up and down
Joinin' in the latest thing
And I run around lookin' for love
Waitin' for bells to ring

Riders to the stars
We are flyin', we are fallin'
And I can see the clouds rollin' by
Riders to the stars
We are sailin', we are soarin'
And all we can do is try
We are riders to the stars
We are riders to the stars

Billy wants a fancy car, says it's just what he needs
Folks into showin', just what they're blowin'
Followin' foolish leads
And Christy wants to find her millionaire, her miracle in the rain
And I lift my head right up to the sun
Never look down again

Riders to the stars
We are flyin', we are fallin'
And I can see the clouds rollin' by
Riders to the stars
We are sailin', we are soarin'
And all we can do is try
We are riders to the stars
We are riders to the stars

Some folks have money, and others survive
God knows, it's not easy just bein' alive
The dreamer dreams on, and dreams never die
Long as we try, long as we try

Riders to the stars
We are flyin', we are fallin'
And I can see the clouds rollin' by
Riders to the stars
We are sailin', we are soarin'
And all we can do is try
We are riders to the stars
We are riders to the stars

lyricist: Marty Panzer
I never feared the devil
Or the gypsy in my soul
But you're not on the level
And I'm not in control
And I'm afraid your baby blues
Are just too much for me
And I'm afraid I'll lose my heart
If you don't set me free

Let me go!
I don't wanna believe you
I just wanna be gone
I just wanna be gone
Let me go!
Don't say how much I need you
Say goodnight and move on
Say goodnight and move on

If you get me under your spell
I'll be lost for good, I can tell
Let me go!
Don't let me love you
Let me go!

Hey, I never bought a hustle
And I never took a dive
I've always had the muscle
To get through love alive
But I'm afraid your lovely lies
Might just do me right in
And I'm afraid to play tonight
Cause I know that I won't win

Let me go!
I don't wanna be lovers
I just wanna be free
I just wanna be, wanna be, wanna be free
Let me go!
You've got so many others
Have some pity on me
Some pity on me

On my own I'm doin' just great
So don't mess around with my fate
Let me go!
Don't let me love you
Let me go!

composer: Richard Kerr
There are you, lookin' just the same as you did last time I touched you
And here I am, close to gettin' tangled up inside the thought of you
Do you love him as much as I love her?
And will that love be strong when old feelings start to stir?

Looks like we made it
Left each other on the way to another
Looks like we made it
Or I thought so till today
Until you were there everywhere
And all I could taste was love the way we made it

Love's so strange, playin' hide and seek with hearts and always hurtin'
We're the fools standin' close enough to touch those burnin' memories
And if I hold you for the sake of all those times love made us lose our minds
Could I ever let you go?

Whoa, no, we made it
Left each other on the way to another
Looks like we made it
Or I thought so till today
Until you were there everywhere
And all I could taste was love the way we made it

Oh, we made it

Looks like we made it
Left each other on the way to another
Looks like we made it
Or I thought so till today
Until you were there everywhere
And all I could taste was love the way we made it

Looks like we made it

Both think we made it

If ya gotta go,
Then I'll make out all right
If you wanna know
I knew it wasn't right
All the time.
We'll make out somehow
Just like we did before
Just don't turn around,
When you walk out the door
And just one time.

Say the words say the words I love
Fill the time 'till the time
You can't stay
Say the words say the words I love
Fill the time 'till the time
You can't stay.

Nothin' left to do.
It's done, there is no more
Nothin' left to say
We've said it all before
Yes, I know
Wouldn't trade away
A day of what we had
I know you shouldn't stay
But, babe it wasn't bad
Before you go

Say the words say the words I love
Fill the time 'till the time
You can't stay.
Say the words say the words I love
Fill the time 'till the time
You can't stay.

lyricist: Marty Panzer
All the time I thought there's only me
Crazy in a way that no one else could be
I would have given everything I own
If someone would have said "you're not alone"

All the time I thought that I was wrong
Wanting to believe but needing to belong
If I'd've just believed in all I had
If someone would have said "you're not so bad"

[Chorus:]
All the time, all the wasted time
All the years waiting for a sign
To think I had it all
All the time

All the time I thought there's only me
Crazy in a way that no one else could be
I can't believe that you were somewhere, too
Thinking all the time there's only you

[Chorus]

They tell me, I'm the man of the hour.
--Champagne, all around
It's been so long since I've been alone?
Sometimes, it gets me down.
And you,
you're pretty as a picture
And I don't even know your name
But I sure would like to meet you?
Why don't you see the show again.
I've been singin these love songs forever
Sometimes the words don't make much sense
So I'm living it all through the music
Using last nights compliments
I've been playing for thousands of people
Sometimes, it just never ends.
But the look in your eyes feels so good to me
Why don't you see the show again.
God knows, there's not much I can say
I don't have time for love in my life
But if I ever thought, about changin my mind
It might be with you, tonight.
I've been on the road, for so many weeks now
And I'm losin track of time?
Tryin? to make everyone happy
I wonder what's really mine.
And you,
you're pretty as a picture
And I don't even know your name
But I sure would like to meet you?
Why don't you see the show again
