Have I Told You Lately that I love you?
Have I told you there's no one above you?
Fill my heart with gladness, take away all my sadness,
Ease my troubles, that's what you do.

For the morning sun in all it's glory,
Meets the day with hope and comfort too,
You fill my life with laughter, you can make it better,
Ease my troubles, that's what you do.

There's a love less defined,
And it's yours and it's mine,
Like the sun.
And at the end of the day,
We will give thanks and pray,
To The One, to The One.

And its yours and its mine,
Like the sun. And at the end of the day,
We will give thanks and pray,
To The One, to The One.

Love Changes Everything

length: 3:34
vocal: Michael Ball
lyricist: Charles Hart, Don Black
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Love, love changes everything
Hands and faces, earth and sky
Love, love changes everything
How you live and how you die
Love, can make the summer fly
Or a night seem like a lifetime
Yes love, love changes everything
Now I tremble at your name
Nothing in the world will ever be the same

Love, love changes everything
Days are longer, words mean more
Love, love changes everything
Pain is deeper than before
Love will turn your world around
And that world will last forever
Yes love, love changes everything
Brings you glory, brings you shame
Nothing in the world will ever be the same

Off into the world we go
Planning futures, shaping years
Love (comes in) and suddenly all our wisdom disappears
Love makes fools of everyone
All the rules we made are broken
Yes love, love changes everyone
Live or perish in its flame
Love will never never let you be the same
Love will never never let you be the same

Because You Loved Me

length: 4:20
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right

For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful

You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me
Through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life

You've been my inspiration
Through the lies, you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

Because you loved me
You saw the best in me
Because you loved me

You saw the best in me
Because you loved me
Because you loved me

I Believe I Can Fly

length: 5:12
I used to think that I could not go on
And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true love
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

[1] - I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

[Repeat 1]

Hey, cuz I believe in me, oh

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

[Repeat 1]

Hey, if I just spread my wings
I can fly
I can fly
I can fly, hey
If I just spread my wings
I can fly
Fly-eye-eye

With One Look

length: 3:33
vocal: Michael Ball
With one look
I can break your heart
With one look
I can play every part
I can make your sad heart sing
With one look
You'll know what you need to know

With one smile
I'm the guy next door
All the love you've hungered for
When I speak is with my soul
I can play any role
No words can tell
The stories my eyes tell
Watch me when I frown
You can't write that down
You know I'm right
It's there in black and white
When I look your way
You'll hear what I say
Yes
With one look
I put words to shame
Just one look I set the screen on flame
Silent music starts to play
One tear in my eye
makes the whole world cry
With one look
They'll forgive the past
They'll rejoice I return at last
To my people in the dark
Still out there in the dark

Silent music starts to play
With one look
You'll know all you need to know
With one look
I'll ignite the blaze
I'll return to my glory days
They'll say, "Look, who's back at last!"
This time
I'm staying
Staying for good
I'll be back
where I was born to be
With one look
I'll be me

How Deep Is Your Love

length: 2:47
I know your eyes in the mornin' sun
I feel you touch me in the pourin' rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love then you softly leave
And it's me you need to show

(How deep is your love?)
How deep is your love? How deep is your love?
I really need to learn
Cause we're livin' in a world of fools
Breakin' us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest darkest hour
You're my savior when I fall
(When I fall)

You may not think that I care for you
When you know down inside that I really do
And it's me you need to show

(How deep is your love?)
How deep is your love? How deep is your love?
I really need to learn
Cause we're livin' in a world of fools
Breakin' us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

(How deep is your love?)
How deep is your love? How deep is your love?
I really need to learn
Cause we're livin' in a world of fools
Breakin' us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

Everybody's Talkin'

length: 2:46
vocal: Michael Ball
composer: Fred Neil
lyricist: Fred Neil
Everybody's talking at me
I don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind

People stopping staring
I can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Thru' the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothes
Backing off of the North East wind
Sailing on summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone

All I Ask of You

length: 3:47
No more talk of 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 waking moment,
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...

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 -
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...

Love me -
That's all I ask of you...

Love me,
That's all I ask of you

Love on the Rocks

length: 3:33
Love on the rocks
Ain't no surprise
Pour me a drink
And I'll tell you some lies
Got nothing to lose
So you just sing the blues all the time

Gave you my heart
Gave you my soul
You left me alone here
With nothing to hold
Yesterday's gone
Now all I want is a smile

First, they say they want you
Oh, how they really need you
Suddenly you find you're out there
Walking in the storm
When they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say
You've got to leave, just get away
We all know the song

You need what you need
You can say what you want
Not much you can do
When the feeling is gone
May be blue skies above
But it's cold when your love's on the rocks

First, they say they want you
Oh, how they really need you
Suddenly you find you're out there
Walking in a storm
When they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say
You've got to leave, just get away
We all know the song

Love on the rocks
Ain't no big surprise
Pour me a drink
And I'll tell you some lies
Yesterday's gone
And now all I want is a smile

Wind Beneath My Wings

length: 4:03
It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You've been content to let me shine
You always walked a step behind

I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength
A beautiful face without a name, for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything that I'd like to be?
And I can fly higher than an eagle
You are the wind beneath my wings

It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know, I know the truth, of course, I know it
I would be nothing without you, oh

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything that I'd like to be?
And I can fly higher than an eagle
You are the wind beneath my wings

Did you ever know that you're my hero
You're everything, everything that I'd like to be?
And I, oh, I can fly higher than an eagle
Cause you are the wind beneath my wings
You are the wind beneath my wings

You, you, you, oh thank God for you
Wind beneath my wings

Memory

length: 4:04
Midnight
Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone

In the lamplight
Withered leaves collected at my feet
And the wind begins to blow

Memory
All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember
The time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Every street lamp
Seems to beat
A fatalistic warning
Someone mutters
And the street lamp gutters
And soon
It will be morning

Daylight,
I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin

Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale cold smell of morning
The streetlamp dies,
Another night is over
Another day is dawning

Touch me, it's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me
You'll understand what happiness is
Look, a new day has begun

We Have All the Time in the World

length: 3:15
vocal: Michael Ball
composer: John Barry
lyricist: Hal David
We have all, the time in the world
Time enough for life
To unfold
All the prescious things
Love has in store

We have all the love in the world
If that's all we have
You will find
We need nothing more

Every step of the way
Will find us
With the cares of the world
Far behind us

We have all the time in the world
Just for love
Nothing more
Nothing less
Only love

Every step of the way
Will find us
With the cares of the world
Far behind us
Yes

We have all the time in the world
Just for love
Nothing more
Nothing less
Only love

Only love

People Are Strange

length: 3:08
vocal: Michael Ball
writer: John Densmore, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, Jim Morrison

People are strange is when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name

When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

People are strange is when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name

When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange
Yeah

People are strange is when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name

When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

Easy Terms

length: 4:35

Only mine until
Time comes round to pay the bill
Then I'm afraid what can't be paid
Must be returned

You'll never ever learn
That nothing's yours
On easy terms

Only for a time
I must not learn
To call you mine
Familiarize
That face, those eyes;
Make future plans
That cannot be confirmed
On borrowed time
On easy terms
Living on the never, never
Constant as the
Changing weather
Never sure
Who's at the door
Are the price that I'll have to pay
Should we meet again
I would not recognize your name
You can be sure

What's gone before
Will be consealed
Friends will never learn
That's what we were
On easy terms

Living on a never never
Constant as the changing weather
Never sure
Who's at the door
The price that I'll have to pay
Should we meet again

You'll never ever learn
That nothing's yours
On easy terms

Living on a never never
Constant as the changing weather
Never sure
Who's at the door
Are the price that I'll have to pay
Should we meet again
Should we meet again
Should we meet again
Nothing's ever yours

The Way We Were

length: 3:26
Memories light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories of the way we were
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another for the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we?
Could we?

Memories may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
The way we were

Against All Odds

length: 3:22
vocal: Michael Ball
composer: Phil Collins
lyricist: Phil Collins
How can I just let you walk away,
Just let you leave without a trace?
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh ooh
You're the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me
When all I can do is watch you leave?
'Cause we've shared the laughter and the pain
And even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
Well there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now

Well there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against the odds
And that's what I've got to face, oh

I wish I could just make you turn around
Turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you
So many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
Well there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

Take a look at me now
Well there's just an empty space
But to wait for you is all I can do
And that's what I've got to face

Take a good look at me now
'Cause I'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against the odds
And it's what I've got to face
Take a look at me now

You'll Never Walk Alone

length: 3:44
vocal: Michael Ball
When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark


Walk on, through the wind
Walk on, through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone


When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark
Walk on, through the wind
Walk on, through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone


Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
