Roger Whittaker - You are my miracle

You are my nights,
You are my days,
You are my miracle,
In so many ways.

You give me hope,
You carry on,
You are my miracle,
For you make me strong.

The wonder of the love
To feel and to share,
Does ev'ry lover feel as I do?

How happy when we meet,
How tearful when we part,
To feel the joy and pain as I do.

You are my nights,
You are my days,
You are my miracle,
In so many ways.

You give me hope,
You carry on,
You are my miracle,
For you make me strong.

If I could have a wish,
I'd wish for everyone,
I'd wish that all could feel as I do.

I'd give to every heart,
The miracle of love,
To know the joy of life as I do.

You are my nights,
You are my days,
You are my miracle,
In so many ways.

You give me hope,
You carry on,
You are my miracle,
For you make me strong.

You are my nights,
You are my days,
You are my miracle,
In so many ways.

You give me hope,
You carry on,
You are my miracle,
For you make me strong.

Albany

(gesprochen)

Dies ist Gordon McKenzies Lied.
Sein Lied von Albany
Dem stolzen Schloß seines Clans
Das er eines Tages für immer verlieren sollte.


Albany - Hoch in den Bergen von Northern Green
Albany - in Deinen Mauern war ich einst zu Hause
Albany - Schloß meiner Väter, das ich geliebt
Ach könnt ich Dich nur einmal wiedersehen!


Charles und Gordon waren zwei Brüder
Sangen als Kinder die gleichen Lieder
Jagten gemeinsam in den Wäldern


Doch aus Bruderliebe und Freundschaft
Wurde eines Tages bitt're Feindschaft
Als sie sahn:
Sie liebten beide dasselbe Mädchen


(Ref.)


Charles und Gordon waren zwei Brüder
Man sagte einer stach den andren nieder
Doch ihren fairen Kampf sah keiner

Wie ein Mörder mußte Gordon fliehen
Kein McKenzie hat ihm je verziehen
Rastlos zieht er nun umher
Und findet keinen Frieden


(Ref.)

Annie's Song

length: 3:11
composer: John Denver
lyricist: John Denver
You fill up my senses like a night in a forest,
Like the mountains in springtime,
Like a walk in the rain, like a storm in the desert,
Like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you,
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms.
Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you.
Come, let me love you, come love me again.

You fill up my senses like a night in a forest,
Like the mountains in spring-time,
Like a walk in the rain, like a storm in the desert,
Like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.
Come let me love you, let me give my life to you,
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms.
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
Come let me love you, come love me again.

Yellow Bird

length: 2:21
composer: Norman Luboff, Michel Mauléart Monton
lyricist: Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me
Did your lady friend leave your nest again?
That is very sad, makes me feel so bad
You can fly away, in the sky away
You're more lucky than me

I also had a pretty girl
She's not with me today
They're all the same, the pretty girls
Take tenderness, then they fly away

Yellow bird, up high in banana tree
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me
Let her fly away, in the sky away
Pick a town and, soon, pick from night to noon
Black and yellow, you like banana too
They might pick you someday

Wish that I were a yellow bird
I'd fly away with you
But I am not a yellow bird
So here I sit, nothin' else to do

Yellow bird
Yellow bird
Yellow bird
Yellow bird

My Love, Cape Breton and Me

length: 3:50
writer: Bob Quinn
Sing me a song of your hills
Of mountains and waters so still
A song that will speak of the magic of three
My love, Cape Breton and me

Teach me the way of your land
How power and peace go hand in hand
It 's all that I want in this life and it 's free
My love, Cape Breton and me

Always your rivers are calling to me
I hear the sound of sweet melody
When we're apart and I feel all alone
Carry me home, carry me home

If my time could end perfectly
I know how I 'd want it to be
God's gift of heaven would be made up of three
My love, Cape Breton and me

Always your rivers are calling to me
I hear the sound of sweet melody
When we're apart and I feel all alone
Carry me home, carry me home

Sing me a song of your hills
Of mountains and waters so still
A song that will speak of the magic of three
My love, Cape Breton and me

It 's all that I want in this world and it 's free
My love, Cape Breton and me

The Wind Beneath My Wings

length: 4:02
writer: Larry Henley, Jeff Silbar
It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine, that's your way
You always walked a step behind
So 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 I would like to be
If 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 with out you

Fly, fly, fly away
You let me fly so high
Oh, fly, fly
So high against the sky
So high I almost touch the sky
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you
The wind beneath my wings
