This is just for you
I dedicate everything I do
My fear is gone
And I feel so strong
Love has never been so true
I've never seen what I see in you
I watch you sleep
Your beauty runs so deep
And wherever you go, I'll walk beside you
And whatever you need, I will provide you
Take my soul, and never let go

'Cuz I live just for you
And I give just for you
And your love has me wanting to
Be the best man I can be
I believe in forever
Just for you and me

This is just for us
To a future filled with truth and trust
And your sweet touch
I want you so much
And there is nothing that we can't do together
I am gonna be lovin' you forever
Take my hand, and make me your man

'Cuz I live just for you
And I give just for you
And your love has me wanting to
Be the best man I can be
I believe in forever
Just for you and me

Take my soul, and never let go
'Cuz I live just for you
And I give just for you
And your love has me wanting to
Be the best man I can be
And I believe in forever
Just for you and me

And I believe in forever
Just for you and me

This is just for you
I dedicate everything I do
My fear is gone
And I feel so strong
Love has never been so true
I've never seen what I see in you
I watch you sleep
Your beauty runs so deep
Wherever you go, I'll walk beside you
And whatever you need, I will provide you
Take my hand, and make me your man

'Cuz I live just for you
And I give just for you
And your love has me wanting to
Be the best man I can be
I believe in forever
Just for you and me

This is just for us
A future built on truth and trust
And your sweet touch
I want you so much
Wherever you go, I'll walk beside you
And whatever you need, I will provide you
Take my soul, and never let go

'Cuz I live just for you
And I give just for you
And your love has me wanting to
Be the best man I can be
I believe in forever
Just for you and me

I've been around for you
I've been up and down for you
But I just can't get any relief
I've swallowed my pride for you
I've lived and lied for you
But you still make me feel like a thief

You got me stealin' your love away
'Cause you never give it
Peeling the years away
And we can't relive it
I make you laugh
And you make me cry
I believe it's time for me to fly

You said we'd work it out
You said that you had no doubt
That deep down we were really in love
Oh, but I'm tired of holding on
To a feeling I know is gone
I do believe that I've had enough

I've had enough of the falseness
Of a worn out relation
Enough of the jealousy
And the intoleration
I make you laugh
And you make me cry
I believe it's time for me to fly

{Refrain} Time for me to fly
Oh, I've got to set myself free
Time for me to fly
And that's just how it's got to be
I know it hurts to say goodbye
But it's time for me to fly

Oh, don't you know it's...
{Refrain}

It's time for me to fly
{Repeat to end}

. . .


You should have seen by the look in my eyes, baby
There was somethin missin'
You should have known by the tone of my voice, maybe
But you didn't listen
You played dead
But you never bled
Instead, you lay still in the grass
All coiled up and hissin'

And though I know all about those men
Still, I don't remember
'Cause it was us, baby, way before then
And we're still together
And I meant
Every word I said
When I said that I love you, I meant
That I love you forever

And I'm gonna keep on loving you
'Cause it's the only thing I want to do
I don't want to sleep
I just want to keep on loving you

And I meant
Every word I said
When I said that I love you, I meant
That I love you forever

And I'm gonna keep on loving you
'Cause it's the only thing I want to do
I don't want to sleep
I just want to keep on loving you

Baby, I'm gonna keep on loving you
'Cause it's the only thing I want to do
I don't want to sleep
I just want to keep on loving you

. . .


I can't fight this feeling any longer
And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow
What started out as friendship has grown stronger
I only wish I had the strength to let it show

I tell myself that I can't hold out forever
I say there is no reason for my fear
'Cause I feel so secure when we're together
You give my life direction, you make everything so clear

And even as I wander, I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window on a cold, dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

And I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

'Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Come crashing through your door
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you
I've been running around in circles in my mind
And it always seems that I'm following you, girl
'Cause you take me to the places that alone I'd never find

And even as I wander, I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window on a cold, dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

And I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

'Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Come crashing through your door
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore

Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin' around
They say you got a boyfriend
You're out late every weekend
They're talkin' about you and it's bringin' me down

But I know the neighborhood
And talk is cheaper when the story is good
And the tales grow taller on down the line
But I'm telling you, babe
That I don't think it's true, babe
And even if it is, keep this in mind

You take it on the run, baby
If that's the way you want it, baby
Then I don't want you around
I don't believe it
Not for a minute
You're under the gun
So you take it on the run

You're thinking up your white lies
You're putting on your bedroom eyes
You say you're coming home but you won't say when
But I can feel it coming
If you leave tonight, keep running
And you need never look back again

You take it on the run, baby
If that's the way you want it, baby
Then I don't want you around
I don't believe it
Not for a minute
You're under the gun
So you take it on the run

Take it on the run, baby
If that's the way you want it, baby
Then I don't want you around
I don't believe it
Not for a minute
You're under the gun
So you take it on the run

Take it on the run, baby
If that's the way you want it, baby
Then I don't want you around
I don't believe it
Not for a minute
You're under the gun
So you take it on the run

Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin' around

. . .


You ask how long I'll love you
It's hard to explain but I'll try
Tell me how long has the sun been shining
Above us in the sky?

Till the last day of forever,
If I have it my way we'll stay together
Till the rivers run dry I'll be loving you.
Till the mountains have crumbled
I'll always be true
And if for some reason you say goodbye
Ask me how long I would cry
Till all the rivers run dry

This path that we're walking
May be rough and rocky sometimes
But we'll believe in one another
Whatever we find

And when you need a hand to guide you
I will be there walking beside you
Till the rivers run dry

. . .


There was a time some time ago
When every sunrise meant a sunny day, oh a sunny day
But now when the morning light shines in
It only disturbs the dreamland where I lay, oh where I lay
I used to thank the lord when I'd wake
For life and love and the golden sky above me
But now I pray the stars will go on shinin'
You see in my dreams you love me

Daybreak is a joyful time
Just listen to the songbird harmonies, oh the harmonies
But I wish the dawn would never come
I wish there was silence in the trees, oh the trees
If only I could stay asleep, at least I could pretend you're thinkin' of me
'Cause night time is the one time I am happy
You see in my dreams

We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us, we are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me, in my dreams

(Solo)

I keep hopin' one day I'll awaken, and somehow she'll be lying by my side
And as I wonder if the dawn is really breakin'
She touches me and suddenly I'm alive

We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us, we are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me, in my dreams

We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us, we are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me, in my dreams

Oho, in my dreams

. . .


Maybe it's too late but
This feelin' is runnin' through my soul
I think I've learned what love is
But I'm afraid I let it go

Maybe it's too late
Maybe you've already changed your mind
Turned lovin' into leavin'
And I'm on the outside

You can't take these words
To bed with you
And hold onto them at night
They can't erase the emptiness
And make everything all right

But your laughter and your tenderness
Will never disappear
No matter where you are tonight
A part of you is here with me

Here with me
I don't know where you are
All I know is I need you to be

Here with me
I know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight
It's my fate to have you here with me

I can hear your voice promising
Your love will never die
I can feel your golden skin on mine
Beneath the desert sky

So how can it be true
How can you just turn and let me go
Let the story of your life with mine
Forever go untold

I can't take these words to bed with me
And hold onto them at night
They can't erase the emptiness
And make everything all right

'Cause your laughter and your tenderness
Will never disappear
No matter where you are tonight
A part of you is here with me

Here with me
I don't know where you are
All I know is I need you to be

Here with me
I know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight
It's my fate to have you here with me

Here with me
I don't know where you are
All I know is I need you to be

Here with me
I know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight
It's my fate to have you here with me

Here with me
I don't know where you are
All I know is I need you to be

Here with me
I know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight

Here with me
Ah, you're here with me
I don't know where you are
Don't know where
All I know is I need you to be, whoa, oh

Here with me
I know it's not too late
Know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight, oh

Here with me, yeah, yeah
I don't know where you are
I don't know where
I don't know where
I don't know where you are

. . .


Father to son, husband to wife
Brother to brother, black man to white
Living together, falling apart
Looking for the common ground in every human heart
It all comes down to the two of us
Yeah this is where we start

We are building the bridge
One small stone at a time
With a lot of love
And some help from above
From your heart to mine

There's a land of justice, cities filled with pride
A mountain of hope, just on the other side


Across a river of indifference, and a valley of despair
There's a tower of courage, piercing through the air
I have a dream for our children, I want to take them there

And we are building the bridge
One small stone at a time
With a lot of love
And some help from above
From your heart to mine

As we seek out understanding
As we learn to forgive
When we open up our minds
When our words are true and kind
We are building the bridge

. . .


You and your baby
Had some words today
Til not another word
Was left to say

I see that grin, boy
Maybe you think you'll win, boy
Until the sun goes down
And once again, boy

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to
Completely break you

They say it's darkest
Right before the dawn
But, oh, those darkest hours
Can be so long

You're feelin' strong, boy
Tellin' yourself she's wrong, boy
But how much longer can
This night go on, boy

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to
Completely break you

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to
Completely break you

Ooh, she's such a good find
Have you gone and lost your mind
You should know she's one of a kind

Ooh, she's such a good find
Have you gone and lost your mind
You should know she's one of a kind

Just one lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to
Completely break you

. . .


When she turned away, you know it was just in time
Cause I'd used up all my strength
And you can't let a woman see you cryin
And you know it's real
She's not gonna change her mind
You choose not to change your ways
Though she begged you a thousand times
And you don't understand
And you want to be a man about it

In time you'll learn to live without it
And you know that you'll survive
But still sometimes you doubt it
If you can stand a little rain
You're gonna grow again
Cause you know that when love dies
The heart survives

Your stare at the empty walls
Inside of this vacant home
You walk through these hollow halls
And at night you sleep alone

Chorus

You've been over it so many times in your head
Looking for a hidden message of hope
In something she said
Still you find nothing to make this bad dream end
Tell me, how many sleepless nights will you spend

Chorus

. . .


Staring up at the moonlight
Looking up at the stars
I'm alone and I just want to be with you
But I don't know where you are

Maybe I took you for granted
So blind, I let your love slip away
Now I'm missing you so much I can't stand it
Please believe me when I say,

After tonight, I never will be the same again
This time I'm sure that nothing means more
Than giving you all the love I can
After tonight I promise, I'm gonna be a better man


Just hold me tight, and I'll be all right
After tonight

Anticipating the moment
When I can make love with you again
Patience is a virtue I'm finding
Very hard to understand

After tonight, I will never be the same again
This time I'm sure that nothing means more
Than giving you all the love I can
After tonight I promise, I'm gonna be a better man
Just hold me tight, and I'll be all right
After tonight

. . .


I know a place where you can go
When you're flyin high or layin low
And I've got the time
I've got plenty to spare
I've got the time, and I've got the place
I just wish you were there


I've got* the will(yeah)to have you around
Whether you're up, or whether you're down
And I know the way
To make you shine(oooh,yeah)
I've got the will, and I've got the way
I just wish you were there
