Surrender

length: 3:06
vocal: Sarah Brightman
lyricist: Don Black, Christopher Hampton, Don Black, Christopher Hampton
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber, Andrew Lloyd Webber

No more wars to fight
White flags fly tonight
You are out of danger now
Battle field is still
Wild poppies on the hill
Peace can only come when you surrender
Here the tracers fly
Lighting up the sky
But I'll fight unto the end
Let them send their armies
I will never bend
I won't see you now till I surrender
I'll see you again when I surrender

Battle field is still
Wild poppies on the hill
Peace can only come when you surrender
Here the tracers fly
Lighting up the sky
But I'll fight unto the end
Let them send their armies
I will never bend
I won't see you now till I surrender
I'll see you again when I surrender

Unexpected Song

length: 2:56
vocal: Sarah Brightman
lyricist: Don Black, Richard Maltby, Jr.
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
From Song and Dance I have never felt like this
For once I'm lost for words
Your smile has really thrown me
This is not like me at all
I never thought I'd know
The kind of love you've shown me

Now, no matter where I am
No matter what I do
I see your face appearing
Like an unexpected song
An unexpected song
That only we are hearing

I don't know what is going on
Can't work it out at all
Whatever made you choose me
I just can't believe my eyes
You look at me as though
You couldn't bear to lose me

Now, no matter where I am
No matter what I do
I see your face appearing
Like an unexpected song
An unexpected song
That only we are hearing

I have never felt like this
For once I'm lost for words
Your smile has really thrown me
This is not like me at all
I never thought I'd know
The kind of love you've shown me

Now, no matter where I am
No matter what I do
I see your face appearing
Like an unexpected song
An unexpected song
That only we are hearing

Like an unexpected song
An unexpected song
That only we are hearing

vocal: Sarah Brightman
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
lyricist: Charles Hart, Don Black
Pas de tendresse
Et pas de joie,
Loin d'ici,
Loin de toi.

Rien de plus triste
Que mes soupirs,
Lorsque vient le jour
O¨´ il me faut partir.


Chanson d'enfance,
Tu vis toujours dans ma coeur.
Toi, la plus douce!
Toi, la plus tendre!


see'est la chanson
Qui dit toujours:
Dans ton esprit
Je vis toujours.


see'est la chanson
Qui dit toujours:
Dans ton esprit
Je vis toujours.


And the last three stanzas are repeated once

Tell Me on a Sunday

length: 3:45
vocal: Sarah Brightman
lyricist: Don Black
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Don't write a letter when you want to leave
Don't call me at 3 a.m. from a friend's apartment
I'd like to choose how I hear the news
Take me to a park that's covered with trees
Tell me on a Sunday please

Let me down easy
No big song and dance
No long faces, no long looks
No deep conversation
I know the way we should spend that day
Take me to a zoo that's got chimpanzees
Tell me on a Sunday please

Don't want to know who's to blame
It won't help knowing
Don't want to fight day and night
Bad enough you're going

Don't leave in silence with no word at all
Don't get drunk and slam the door
That's no way to end this
I know how I want you to say goodbye
Find a circus ring with a flying trapeze
Tell me on a Sunday please

Don't want to fight day and night
Bad enough you're going
Don't leave in silence with no word at all
Don't get drunk and slam the door
That's no way to end this
I know how I want you to say goodbye

Don't run off in the pouring rain
Don't call me as they call your plane
Take the hurt out of all the pain
Take me to a park that's covered with trees
Tell me on a Sunday please

Nothing Like You've Ever Known

length: 3:09
vocal: Sarah Brightman
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
lyricist: Don Black
Nothing like you've ever known
That's the life I thought that I was gonna show you
Lonely girls believe such things
That's one happy ever after that I owe you

Married man always looking at
You watch
I wanted to spend more time than twelve till two
Loving you

And nothing like it should have been
Every time I think it's gonna be the last time
Each time I expect to much
Being wrong can get to be a painful pastime

Something new that is all it was
You know
But when you need someone any love will do
Sad but true

And nothing like we've ever known
That is how I thought all our tomorrows would be
I thought we were all we'd need
Goes to show you just how wrong two people could be

Macavity: The Mystery Cat

length: 4:46
vocal: Sarah Brightman
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
lyricist: T. S. Eliot
Macavity's a mystery cat, he's called the hidden paw
For he's the master criminal who can defy the law
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair
For when they reach the scene of crime Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity
He's broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity
His powers of levitation would make a fakir stare
But when you reach the scene of crime Macavity's not there!
You may seek him in the basement, you may look up in the air
But I tell you once and once again Macavity's not there!

Macavity's a ginger cat, he's very tall and thin
You would know him if you saw him for his eyes are sunked in
His brow is deeply lined with thought, his head is highly domed
His coat is dusty from neglect, his whiskers are uncombed
He sways his head from side to side with movements like a snake
And when you think he's half asleep, he's always wide awake

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity
For he's a fiend in feline shape, a monster of depravity
You may meet him in a by-street, you may see him in the square
But when a crime's discovered then Macavity's not there!

He's outwardly respectable, I know he cheats at cards
And his footprints are not found in any files of Scotland Yard's
And when the larder's looted or the jewel case is rifled
Or when the milk is missing or another peke's been stifled
Or the greenhouse glass is broken and the trellis past repair
There's the wonder of the thing Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity
There never was a cat of such deceitfulness and suavity
He always has an alibi and one or two to spare
What ever time the deed took place Macavity's not there!

And they say that all the cats whose wicked deeds are widely known
I might mention Mungojerrie, I might mention Griddlebone
Are nothing more than agents for the cat who all the time
Just controls the operations: the Napolean of crime!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity
He's a fiend in feline shape, a monster of depravity
You may meet him in a by-street, you may see him in the square
But when a crime's discovered then Macavity
Macavity, Macavity, Macavity

When a crime's discovered then Macavity's not there!

Gus: The Theatre Cat

length: 5:11
vocal: Sir John Gielgud and Sarah Brightman
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Sarah
Gus is the cat at the theatre door
His name, as I ought to have told you before
Is really Asparagus, but that's a fuss to pronounce

That we usually call him just Gus
His coat's very shabby, he's thin as a rake
And he suffers from palsy that makes his paw shake
For he was in his youth quite the smartest of cats
But no longer a terror to mice or to rats

For he isn't the cat that he was in his prime
Though his name was quite famous, he says, in his time
And whenever he joins his friends at their club
(Which takes place at the back of the neighbouring pub)

He loves to regale them, if someone else pays
With anecdotes drawn from his palmiest days
For he once was a star of the highest degree
He has acted with Irving, he's acted with Tree

And he likes to relate his success on the halls
Where the gallery once gave him seven cat calls
But his grandest creation as he loves to tell
Was Firefrorefiddle, the fiend of the fell


Sir John
I have played in my time every possible part
And I used to know seventy speeches by heart
I'd extemporize backchat, I knew how to gag

And I knew how to let the cat out of the bag
I knew how to act with my back and my tail
With an hour of rehearsal, I never could fail
I'd a voice that would soften the hardest of hearts

Whether I took the lead, or in character parts
I have sat by the bedside of poor little Nell
When the curfew was rung then I swung on the bell
In the pantomime season, I never fell flat

And I once understudied **** Whittington's cat
But my grandest creation, as history will tell
was Firefrorefiddle, the fiend of the fell

Sarah
Then, if someone will give him a toothful of gin
He will tell how he once played a part in East Lynne
At a Shakespeare performance he once walked on pat
When some actor suggested the need for a cat

Sir John
And I say now these kittens, they do not get trained
As we did in the days when Victoria reigned
They never get drilled in a regular troupe
And they think they are smart just to jump through a hoop

Sarah
And he says as he scratches himself with his claws

Sir John
Well the theatre is certainly not what is was
These modern productions are all very well
But there's nothing to equal from what I hear tell
That moment of mystery when I made history
As Firefrorefiddle, the fiend of the fell

Piano (Memory) (Italian version)

length: 5:06
vocal: Sarah Brightman
lyricist: Roberto Ferri
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Piano questi passi d'amore
Sulla strada del cuore
Che mi porta da te
Soffia il vento del tempo
Questa notte che va
Sempre qui ci trover¨¤

Piano senza fare rumore
Gira il mondo le ore
Quanta fretta che ha
Un ricordo domani
Questa notte sar¨¤
Sempre qui poi torner¨¤

Nasce il sole
Che cosi
Ci trover¨¤ abbracciati
La sua mano
Sulla porta piano
Spalanca il cielo al mattino

Giorno mentre arrival l'inverno
Un fedele ritorno
La sua neve cadr¨¤
E la notte pi¨´ chiara
Questa sera sar¨¤
Quando il puio scender¨¤

Nasce il sole
Che cosi
Ci trover¨¤ abbracciati
La sua mano
Sulla porta piano
Spalanca il cielo al mattino

Forte e lo voglio gridare
Questo amore pi¨´ forte
Questa notte sar¨¤
Quante volte
Nel letto si ¨¨ svegliato con me
Questo amore ¨¨ per te

Mary Magdalene (Sarah Brightman)
Try not to get worried
Try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you
(oh) Don't you know
Everything's alright
Yes everything's fine
And we want you to sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without you tonight
If we try
We'll get by
So forget all about us tonight

Apostles' Women
Everything's all right
Yes everything's all right yes

Mary Magdalene
Sleep and I shall soothe you
Calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead
(oh) Then you'll feel
Everything's all right
Yes everything's fine
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
And relax
Think of nothing tonight

Apostles' Women
Everything's all right
Yes everything's all right yes

Judas (Gary Martin)
Woman your fine ointment
Brand new and expensive
Could have been saved for the poor
Why has it been wasted?
We could have raised maybe
Three hundred silver pieces or more
People who are hungry
People who are starving
Thay matter more
Than your feet and hair

Mary Magdalene
Try not to get worried
Try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you
(oh) Don't you know
Everything's all right
Yes everything's fine
And we want you to sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without you tonight
If we try
We'll get by
So forget all about us tonight

Apostles' Women
Everything's all right
Yes everything's all right yes

Jesus (Bogdan Kominowksi)
Surely you're not saying
We have the resources
To save the poor from their lot?
There will be poor always
Pathetically struggling
Look at the good things you've got!
Think
While you still have me
Move
While you still see me
You'll be lost
You'll be so, so sorry
When I'm gone

Mary Magdalene
Sleep and I shall soothe you
Calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead
(oh) then you'll feel
Everything's alright
Yes everything's fine
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
And relax
Think of nothing tonight

Apostles' Women & Mary Magdalene
Close your eyes
Alose your eyes
And relax
Think of nothing tonight

Men
Everything's all right
Yes everything's all right yes

(The last verses are repeated several times)

The Last Man in My Life

length: 3:09
vocal: Sarah Brightman
lyricist: Don Black
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
I'm a lady when you kiss me,
I'm a child when you are leaving,
I'm a woman ev'ry time our bodies meet complete.

Long lost feelings stir inside me,
used to think nights were for sleeping,
being wanted is a thrill I never knew till you.

Now I'm alive, inside I'm glowing,
I'm how I want to be,
loving you I can be me, just me.

It's the first time when you touch me,
now I long for rainy mornings,
I am certain you're the last man in my life.

I'm a woman ev'ry time our bodies meet complete.

Long lost feelings stir inside me,
used to think nights were for sleeping,
being wanted is a thrill I never knew till you.

Now I'm alive, inside I'm glowing,
I'm how I want to be,
loving you I can be me, just me.

It's the first time when you touch me,
now I long for rainy mornings,
tell each other to find all we're looking for and more.

Found the rainbow I was after,
no more dreams with one face missing,
I am certain you're the last man in my life.

No llores por mi Argentina (Don't Cry for Me Argentina) (Spanish version)

length: 5:32
vocal: Sarah Brightman
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
librettist: Tim Rice
translator: José Carreras Moysi, Nacho Artime, Jaime Azpilicueta
Será dificil de comprender Que a pesar de
Estar hoy aquí Soy del pueblo jamás
Lo podré olvidar Debéis creerme, mis
Lujos son solamente un disfraz Un juego
Burgués, nada más Las reglas del
Ceremonial

Tenía que aceptar debí cambiar Y
Dejar de vivir en lo gris
Siempre tras la ventana,
Sin lugar bajo el sol Busqué ser libre,
Pero jamás dejaré de soñar Y
Solo podré conseguir la fe que
Querrás compartir

No llores por mí Argentina Mi alma
Está contigo Mi vida entera te la dedico
Mas no te alejes, te necesito

Jamás poderes ambicioné Mentiras
Dijeron de mí Mi lugar vuestro es, por
Vosotros luché Yo sólo quiero
Sentiros muy cerca, poder intentar Abrir mi
Ventana y saber Que nunca me vais a olvidar

No llores por mí Argentina...

No llores por mí Argentina Mi alma
Está contigo Mi vida entera te la dedico
Mas no te alejes, te necesito

Qué mas podré decir Para
Convenceros de mi verdad Si aún
Queréis dudar, mirad mis ojos ved
Cómo lloran de amor

No llores por mí Argentina...

There Is More to Love

length: 2:33
vocal: Sarah Brightman
lyricist: Charles Hart, Don Black
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
There is more to love,
So much more,
Than simply making love --
That's easy.

Gazing into eyes,
Pretty eyes,
Which could be any eyes --
That's crazy.

Hands are just hands,
A face is just a face ...
They come and go --
They're easy to replace ...

There is more to love,
So much more,
Than moon-struck escapades --
That's nothing.

There is peace of mind,
So much peace,
In quiet company --
That's something.

Everyone but him
Seems wrong for me ...
Every time I feel
There has to be
More ...

If I could hear
The music I heard then,
I'd never let
It fade away again ...

There is more to love,
So much more,
Than simply making love --
That's easy.

Gazing into eyes,
Pretty eyes,
Which could be any eyes --
That's crazy.

Now each time
Love reaches out to me,
I can only feel
There has to be
So much more
To love ...

Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again

length: 3:32
vocal: Sarah Brightman
lyricist: Richard Stilgoe, Charles Hart
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
You were once my one companion
You were all that mattered
You were once a friend and father
Then my world was shattered

Wishing you were somehow here again
Wishing you were somehow near
Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed
Somehow you would be here

Wishing I could hear your voice again
Knowing that I never would
Dreaming of you won't help me to do
All that you dreamed I could

Passing bells and sculpted angels
Cold and monumental
Seem for you the wrong companions
You were warm and gentle

Too many years fighting back tears
Why can't the past just die?

Wishing you were somehow here again
Knowing we must say goodbye
Try to forgive, teach me to live
Give me the strength to try

No more memories, no more silent tears
No more gazing across the wasted years
Help me say goodbye
Help me say goodbye

The Music of the Night

length: 5:23
vocal: Sarah Brightman
lyricist: Richard Stilgoe, Charles Hart
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses

Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before
Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar
And you'll live as you've never lived before

Softly, deftly, music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it secretly posses you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness that you know you cannot find
The darkness of the music of the night

Let your mind start to journey through a strange new world
Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before
Let your soul take you where you long to be
Only then can you belong to me

Floating, folding, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me savor each sensation
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night

You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night
