And if you should miss my love

One of these old days,

If you should ever miss the arms

That used to hold you so close, or the lips

That used to touch you so tenderly,

Just remember what I told you

The day I set you free:

 

Ain't no mountain high enough (Wooo-hoooooo!)

Ain't no valley low enough (Say it again!)

Ain't no river wild enough

To keep me from you...

 

Diana Ross [& others many...] - Ain't No Mountain High Enough

By the rivers of babylon, there we sat down

Ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.

 

When the wicked

Carried us away in captivity

Required from us a song

Now how shall we sing the lords song in a strange land?

(Remember) walking in the sand,

(Remember) walking hand in hand,

(Remember) the night was so exciting,

(Remember) her smile was so inviting,

(Remember) then she touched my cheek,

(Remember) with her fingertips,

(Remember) softly, softly we met with a kiss;

What ever happened to

That girl that I once knew,

The girl that said she'd be true,

Oh, what ever happened to

That night I gave it to you; :naughty:

What will you do with it now?

Oh what happened to you? Whatever happened to me?

What became of the people we used to be?

Tomorrow's almost over, today went by so fast

It's the only thing to look forward to - the past

So take a step back

And a breath in

Let it out now

Put your chin up

You can do it tiger

You a man now

And in your dream it's time to do the best you can now

 

<b>We</b> bring ourselves down

And build ourselves up in disappointment

How fragile <b>we</b> are

So fragile <b>we</b> are, <b>we</b> just don't show it

We'll shake up this town

And shoot down the stars for our enjoyment

So sexy <b>we</b> are

So sexy <b>we</b> are, <b>we</b> just don't know it

So many times, it happens too fast

You change your passion for glory

Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past

You must fight just to keep them alive

 

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight

Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night

And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

Now I think I'm going down to the well tonight

and I'm going to drink till I get my fill

And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it

but I probably will

Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture

a little of the <b>glory</b> of, well time slips away

and leaves you with nothing mister but

boring stories of <b>glory</b> days.

Well hello there, my, it's been a long, long time;

How am I doin'? Oh I guess that I'm doin' fine...

It's been so long now but it seems now it was only yesterday;

Gee ain't it funny how time slips away.

 

How's your new love? I hope that he's doin' fine;

I heard you told him that you'd love him till the end of time;

Now that's the same thing that you told me, seems like just the other day...

Gee ain't it funny how time slips away...

I'll tell you one thing

If you would leave, it'd be a crying shame

In every breath and every word I hear your name calling me out

Out from the barrio, you hear my rhythm on your radio

And you feel the turning of the world so soft and slow

It's turning you 'round and 'round and if you said

 

It's just like the ocean under the moon

It's the same same as the emotion that I get from you

You got the kind of loving that could be so smooth

Give me your heart, make it real

Or else forget about it

 

Smooth - Santana

It's been too long since we took the time,

No-one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly;

But when I see you, darling,

It's like we both are falling in love again,

It'll be just like starting over, starting over.

I'm broke but I'm happy

I'm poor but I'm kind

I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah

I'm high but I'm grounded

I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed

I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby

What it all comes down to

Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine

I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one's giving a high five

Here is a little song I wrote

You might want to sing it note for note

Don't worry be happy

In every life we have some trouble

When you worry you make it double

Don't worry, be happy......

 

Ain't got no place to lay your head

Somebody came and took your bed

Don't worry, be happy

The land lord say your rent is late

He may have to litigate

Don't worry, be happy

 

Don't Worry, Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin

Each morning I get up I die

Can barely stand on my feet

Take a look in the mirror and cry

Lord what you're doing to me

I have spent all my years in believing you

But I just can't get no relief, Lord!

Somebody, somebody

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

In the <b>morning</b> I awake,

My arms my legs my body aches,

The sky outside is wet and grey

So begins another weary day.

So begins another weary day.

After eating I go out,

People passing by me shout.

I can't stand this agony

Why don't they talk to me?

In the park I have to rest

I lie down and I do my best,

The rain is falling on my face

I wish I could sink without a trace.

Say nighty-night and kiss me

Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me

While I'm alone and blue as can be

Dream a little dream of me

Waking up from bad news and smoking cigarettes.

Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume.

A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac.

Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away.

 

That's entertainment, that's entertainment.

 

Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight.

Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude.

Getting a cab and travelling on buses.

 

That's entertainment - The Jam

That's my favourite song ever!

 

Time takes a <b>cigarette</b>, puts it in your mouth

You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your <b>cigarette</b>

The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget

Ohhh how how how, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide

As I was lying in my bedroom fast asleep,

Filled with those famous teenage pictures that you keep,

Will Dion still be so important to you on your wedding day?

 

Angel Fingers, Angel Fingers,

How I'd sing for the things you do;

How it lingers, Angel Fingers,

That's why I fell in love with you.

I can feel the new expression on my face,

I can feel that warm sensation taking place,

I can hear the guitar playing lovely tunes,

Every time that you walk in the room.

Hey there Delilah

I know times are getting hard

But just believe me, girl

Someday I'll pay the bills with this <b>guitar</b>

We'll have it good

We'll have the life we knew we would

My word is good.

It don’t make no difference, escaping one last time

It’s easier to believe in this sweet madness oh

This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

 

In the arms of an angel fly away from here

From this dark cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear

You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie

You’re in the arms of the angel

May you find some comfort there
