It’s a Heartache

length: 3:30
producer: Steve Wolfe, Ronnie Scott and Dave Mackay
vocal: Bonnie Tyler
writer: Ronnie Scott, Steve Wolfe

[Chorus]
It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it's too late
Hits you when you're down

It's a fool's game
Nothing but a fools game
Standing in the cold rain
Feeling like a clown

It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Love him til your arms break
Then he lets you down

It ain't right with love to share
When you find he doesn't care for you
It ain't wise to need someone
As much as I depended on you

[Chorus]

It's a fool's game
Nothing but a fools game
Standing in the cold rain
Feeling like a clown

[Chorus]

Blame Me

length: 4:05
writer: Ronnie Scott, Steve Wolfe
If you're wondering why the feeling's changed between us
If I seem a little shaky when we kiss
Oh, it ain't what it seems, you did nothing to spoil my dreams
No, I'm the one who's let it all go wrong

Blame me, for I was helplessly in love
Just for a night I fell in love, I couldn't stop
Blame me, I was so lost inside his arms
Was so blind inside his arms, I couldn't see
Baby, I'm sorry

If you're wondering why I turned from you this morning
And I couldn't look directly in your eyes
Oh, it ain't what it seems, you did nothing to spoil my dreams
No, I'm the one who's let it all go wrong

Blame me, for I was helplessly in love
Just for a night I fell in love, I couldn't stop
Blame me, I was a stranger to myself
If it was only someone else instead of me
Baby, I'm sorry

Blame me, for I was helplessly in love
Just for a night I fell in love, I couldn't stop
Blame me, I was a stranger to myself
If it was only someone else instead of me
Blame me, I was so lost inside his arms
Was so blind inside his arms, I couldn't see

Living for the City

length: 3:45
composer: Stevie Wonder, Stevie Wonder
lyricist: Stevie Wonder, Stevie Wonder
Producers for Bonnie: David Mackay, Ronnie Scott, Steve Wolfe

A boy is born in Hardtime Mississippi
Surrounded by four walls that ain't so pretty
His parents give him love and affection
To keep him strong, movin' in the right direction
Living just enough, just enough for the city, Yeah

His father works some days for fourteen hours
And you can bet he barely makes a dollar
His mother goes to scrub the floors for many
And you'd best believe she hardly gets a penny
Living just enough, just enough for the city

His sister's black, but she is sho 'nuff pretty
Her skirt is short, but Lord her legs are sturdy
To walk to school, she's got to get up early
Her clothes are old, but never are they dirty
Living just enough, just enough for the city

Her brother's smart, he's got more sense than many
His patience's long, but soon he won't have any
To find a job is like a haystack needle, 'cause
Where he lives, they don't use coloured people
Living just enough, just enough for the city
Living just enough for the city


If I Sing You a Love Song

length: 4:48
writer: Ronnie Scott, Steve Wolfe
If I sing you a love song, will you always remember?
Will you hear it on lonely nights when I'm not around?
If I sing you a love song, will you hear it forever
To remind you how much I care and how I needed you?

Love songs last longer than lovers ever do
So, baby, let me sing a love song for you
Love songs don't leave you, but lovers often do
Oh, baby I'm afraid it could happen to me and you

If I sing you a love song, let it always be with you
When the others have gone away, let it still be there
Love songs last longer than lovers ever do
So, baby, let me sing a love song for you
Love songs don't leave you like lovers often do
Oh, baby, I'm afraid it could happen to me and you

Heaven

length: 3:06
writer: Ronnie Scott, Steve Wolfe
In the middle of a sleepless night
Got a feeling and it just ain't right
The feeling just grows in my mind
Something's missing in the way we kiss
Never had so many nights like this.
Feels like a dream but it's true.

I know I don't take you to heaven anymore
I can tell by the way you touch me
It's nothing like before
I know I don't take you to heaven anymore
I can tell by the way you love me
It's nothing like before
I can tell by the way you love me
It's nothing like before

In the middle of a lonely day
Though you're with me you're so far away
We used to be close real close
Baby can't you see the danger signs
Something's gone wrong can't you see.

I know I don't take you to heaven anymore
I can tell
Or he's the one and only "King".
Like he was singing "Now or never
He's just a golden memory.

My dear friend I won't forget

Yesterday Dreams

length: 4:14
composer: Brian Cadd
lyricist: Brian Cadd
Lonely summer needing rain, standing quietly going insane
Said, "I love you", you never heard a word
Memories that still cause pain, I lost the feeling I can't explain
Still I need you, don't that seem absurd?
Shattered dreams in my heart, always gonna tear us apart
Making it so hard to start all over again

Yesterday dreams, yesterday dreams
Here they are coming again, yeah

Fading pictures in my mind, another place, another time
It's the same old song, just another melody
Don't ask me 'cause I don't want to say
He's the reason that keeps me away
I won't go through it again, but you don't even see what I mean
Shattered dreams in my heart, always gonna tear us apart
Making it so hard to start all over again

Yesterday dreams, yesterday dreams
Here they are coming again

I don't want to lie awake with you at night and wonder why
Looking at your hurting eyes and asking me if it's all a lie
Perfect pattern of part-time love
Always aware we're gonna make it above
What I lost before taking us both nowhere

What you're askin' I can't give, pick up the pieces that'll let you live
And don't ever look back 'cause I won't even be there
Shattered dreams in my heart, always gonna tear us apart
Making it so hard to start all over again

Yesterday dreams, yesterday dreams, here they are coming again
Yesterday dreams, yesterday dreams, here they are coming again
Yesterday dreams, yesterday dreams, here they are coming again

Hey Love (It’s a Feeling)

length: 3:52
writer: Ronnie Scott, Steve Wolfe
This love you give me baby, I do believe in
'Cause while the world goes crazy, you keep me breathing
And if you had to leave me I couldn't let you
And the way my arms have held you, they can't forget you

Hey love, it's a feeling inside
Hey love, it's a feeling that I can't describe
Hey love, it's a feeling that I just can't hide
Now I know, oh Lord, how I know, now I know what it's like

This love you give me baby, oh keep on giving
'cause while the world goes crazy, you keep me living
And if you had to leave me I couldn't let you
And the way my arms have held you, they can't forget you

Hey love, it's a feeling inside
Hey love, it's a feeling that I can't describe
Hey love, it's, a feeling that I just can't hide
Now I know, Lord, how I know, now I know what it's like

Hey love, it's a feeling inside
Hey love, it's a feeling that I can't describe
Hey love, it's a feeling that I just can't hide
Now I know, Lord, how I know, now I know what it's like

(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman

length: 3:06
composer: Carole King
writer: Jerry Wexler
lyricist: Gerry Goffin
I used to feel uninspired
And when I knew I'd have face another day.
Lord, it made me feel so tired.
Before the day I met you
Life was so unkind.
Your love was the key to my peace of mind
'Cause you make me feel, you make me feel,
You make me feel like a natural woman.
When my soul was in the lost and found
You came along to claim it.
I didn't know just what was wrong with me
Till your kiss helped me name it.
Now I'm no longer doubtful of what I'm livin' for,
'Cause if I make you happy I don't need to do more.
You make me feel, you make me feel,
You make me feel like a natural woman.

Oh, baby, what you've done to me
(What you've done to me')
You make me feel so good inside
(Good inside.)
And I just want to be
(Want to be)
Close to you.
You make me feel so alive!
You make me feel, you make me feel,
You make me feel like a natural, natural woman.
You make me feel, you make me feel,
You make me feel like a natural natural woman
You make me feel, you make me feel,
You make me feel like a natural natural woman

Here Am I

length: 3:51
writer: Ronnie Scott, Steve Wolfe
Here am I in love again
Clinging to your arms again
Wond'rin' why I wanted to be free.
Here am I next to you
Wond'rin' what we ought to do.
Can't afford to lose it all again.
Here am I
There are you
You nearly broke our hearts in two
Would have been the worst thing in the world.
When I thought that we could live apart
I must have been crazy
What a fool I was
What a fool.
From the moment you got in my heart
I should have known baby
But now I know - oh!
Here am I in love again
Clinging to your arms again
Wond'rin' why I wanted to be free.
When I thought that we could live apart
I must have been crazy
What a fool I was
Oh what a fool.
From the moment you got in my heart
I should have known baby
But now I know - oh!
Here am I in love again
Clinging to your arms again
Wond'rin' why I wanted to be free.
Here am I next to you
Wond'rin' what we ought to do
Can't afford to lose it all again.
Here am I in love again
Clinging to your arms once again
Wond'rin' why I wanted to be free.
Here am I there are you
You nearly broke our hearts in two.
Would have been the worst thing in the world.

He knows the way right to me
Closer than my heartbeat he comes
Moving on my wave-length easy
When we make love completely
Sleepy and soft he breathes
You melt me, you fill me
Baby goodnight, baby goodnight
Simple words, but they mean a lot to me
To fall asleep with your kiss warm on my lips
Baby goodnight, baby goodnight
Sleepy and soft he breathes
You melt me, you fill me
Baby goodnight, baby goodnight
Simple words, but they mean a lot to me
To fall asleep with your kiss warm on my lips
Baby goodnight, baby goodnight
He knows the way right to me
Closer than my heartbeat he comes
Moving on my wave-length easy
When we make love completely
Sleepy and soft he breathes
You melt me, you fill me
Baby goodnight, baby goodnight
Simple words, but they mean a lot to me
To fall asleep with your kiss warm on my lips
Baby goodnight, baby goodnight
Simple words, but they mean a lot to me
That’s as good as a goodnight can be
