I like to see the sunshine of the summer I like to feel the softness of the breeze I like to see the beauty of another And feel it's power bring me to my knees I like to hear the singing of the morning And watch the dewdrop gather on the leaves I like to see the beauty of the dawning And feel it's power bring me to my knees Chorus Bring me sunshine in the shadow of the darkness Bring me light in the hollow of the dream I like to see the winding of the river And watch the waters rising as they flow I like the way the river makes me shiver And carries away all the things it knows Chorus Bring me sunshine in the shadow of the darkness Bring me light in the hollow of the day I like to think of things that take me higher And open up so many many doors I like it when you set my heart on fire And make me feel like I've never felt before Chorus Bring me sunshine in the shadow of the darkness Bring me light in the hollow of the day

Cool 02:36
Where, where's she gone She's missin' all the fun the food the games the wine the rock n' roll the song And all she ever does is say she's sorry Never even tells us where or when or why she's gone Chorus She thinks she's cool but I know she isn't x 2 Did you see her go Was she wearin' a mack, is she comin' back was she fast or was she slow And all she ever does is disappear First yeah she's gone and then she's here Chorus Don't you worry she's ok There's no worry there's no way Chorus Where, where's she gone She's missin' all the fun the food the games the wine the rock n' roll the song And all she ever does is say she's sorry Never even tells us where or when or why she's gone She thinks she's cool but I know she isn't She thinks she's cool but I know she isn't She thinks she's the biz but I know she isn't She thinks she's cool but I know she isn't

If we meet again will you look in my direction Will you say That you knew me when I knew about affection One day Or will you do what I know you can do Will you hide all those feelings inside you If oh if we meet again If we meet again should I act as if I knew you Should I say That I knew you when I thought I could get right to you One day Or should I do what I know I can do Should I hide all the feelings I had for you If oh if we meet again Cause everything was alright, everything was so good Every day seemed so bright And we were the people in the neighborhood If the world should end do I reach out to you Do I say That I knew you when I thought I could get right to you One day Or should I do what I know I can do Should I hide all the feelings I had for you If oh if we meet again Cause everything was alright, everything was so good Every day seemed so bright And we were the people in the neighborhood

Wouldn't it be great if we all owned our own time And wouldn't it be great if we were free And wouldn't it be great if we could see tomorrow Ah sweet futility But all I have is here and now And it's you But all I have is here and now And it's you And isn't it great that we appreciate time And that we know we're not free Storing up today to lose it all tomorrow Ah sweet futility And all I have is here and now And it's you And all I have is here and now And it's you
6.
Hey as we sit here on the sofa Hey as we sit by the TV I wonder how it ever happened I wonder at it all I wonder how it ever came to be Hey as we gaze into each other Hey as we gaze into our dreams I think to myself what a wonderful world I think to myself oh yeah what a girl I think to myself how it ever came to be And if there's ever a moment when things aren't looking so good We try to get it together Just like we should Hey will you do the light fandango Hey will you dance the merry way Will you wait for me by the apple tree Will you be my month of May Will you sing for me whenever I'm away

Do you feel the loneliness Do you feel the pain Can you feel the darkness comin' up again Can you feel the wilderness Closin' all around Can you hear the people say Girl you're goin' down Or is it not the same for me as for you Don't you feel the fear That I feel too Is there a memory In everything you do Why oh why oh why oh why Can't I be with you Lonely people everywhere Always on their own Never goin' nowhere got no place they call home Lookin' for one thing Lookin' for love Lookin' for the one thing That I did not think of Or is it not the same for me as for you Don't you feel the fear That I feel too Is there a memory In everything you see Why oh why oh why oh why Won't you follow me

Sorry 02:55
Sorry I didn't know what to say to you Sorry I couldn't be there beside you You cried when you heard the news Sorry I couldn't stay on the telephone Sorry I didn't know you were all alone You screamed when you heard the news And it goes on regardless And it goes on just like before Hey you know the world can sometimes leave you down It doesn't get much easier if there's nobody around Hey you know Billy Joe is doin' very well Told me so a week ago but told me not to tell But it goes on regardless And it goes on just like before Sorry I didn't know what to say to you Sorry I couldn't be there beside you You cried when you heard the news

I have seen things that I know many others see I have seen sunshine and rain But the touch of your hand makes me forget everything Oh oh oh oh oh I'm fallin' in love again I have felt things that I know many others feel I have felt joy and pain But the sound of your voice makes me forget everything Oh oh oh oh oh I'm fallin' in love again Chorus And this time everything's alright And this time it's ok And this time I know that things are getting better by the day Picture if you will a world standing still A world where everything's the same But even so I still feel the thrill Cause oh oh oh oh oh I'm fallin' in love again Chorus And this time everything's alright And this time it's ok And this time I know that things are getting better by the day

I Believe 03:02
You're thoughtless and you're callous, you're cruel and naive But I guess you're really not all that bad, I Believe Well I'm soft and I'm gentle, I'm quiet as a breeze But I'll take you on any time, I Believe Chorus I believe in you and me I believe we can be You take away ambition, you take away my dreams But I guess you don't know it, I Believe You kill me with your smile and you kill me when you tease But I guess you don't mean it, I believe Chorus You search for a little happiness you try to get some sleep You know that loves the answer, yes I believe Well I plough the lonely furrow and I walk the lonely streets And all I know is that I think I believe Chorus I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you and me I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe we can be Chorus
