You've Been A Friend To Me

if you say up – i say down
we’re the most unlikely pair
but up or down, high or low
you’ve always been right there

you’ve been a friend to me, a godsend to me
i ain’t too proud to say
you’ve been a friend to me

now if i’m feeling lowdown
or feeling ten feet tall
thick or thin, the shape i’m in
don’t matter to you at all

yeah you’ve been a friend to me, a godsend to me
and i ain’t too proud to say
you’ve been a friend to me

whenever I needed someone
you’re right there on the line
with a friend like you, to get me through
i’ll get by every time

you’ve been a friend to me, a godsend to me
i ain’t too proud to say
you’ve been a friend to me

Here I Am

here i am – this is me
there’s no where else on earth i’d rather be
here i am – it’s just me and you
and tonight we make our dreams come true

it’s a new world – it’s a new start
it’s alive with the beating of – young hearts
it’s a new day – it’s a new plan
i been waiting for you
here i am

here we are – we’ve just begun
and after all this time – our time has come
ya here we are – still goin’ strong
right here in the place where we belong

chorus

here i am – next to you
and suddenly the world is all brand new
here i am – where i’m gonna stay
now there’s nothin standin in our way
here i am – this is me

I'm Ready

i’d like to see you, thought i’d let you know
i wanna be with you everyday
cause i’ve got a feeling that’s beginning to grow
and there’s only one thing i wanna say

i’m ready – to love you
i’m ready – to hold you
i’m ready – i’m ready
ready as i’m gonna be

she left me a long note when she left me here
told me that love was hard to find
but baby it’s easy and i’ll make it clear
that there’s only one thing on my mind

i’m ready – to love you
i’m ready – to hold you
i’m ready – i’m ready
ready as i’m gonna be

Let's Make A Night To Remember

I love the way ya look tonight
With your hair hangin’ down on your shoulders
I love the way ya dance that slow sweet tango
The way ya do everything but talk
And how ya stare at me with those undress me eyes
And your breath on my body makes me warm inside

Let’s make out – let’s do something amazing
Let’s do something that’s all the way
Cuz I’ve never touched somebody like the way I touch your body
Now I never want to let your body go…

Let’s make a night – to remember
From January – to December
Let’s make love – to excite us
A memory – to ignite us
Let’s make honey baby – soft and tender
Let’s make sugar darlin’ – sweet surrender
Let’s make a night – to remember – all life long

I love the way ya move tonight
Beads of sweat drippin down your skin
Me lying here – you lyin’ there
Our shadows on the wall and our hands everywhere

Chorus

I think about ya all the time
Can’t you see you drive me outta my mind
Well I’m never holdin’ back again
Ya I never want this night to end
Cuz I’ve never touched somebody like the way I touch your body
Now I never want to let your body go…

It Ain't A Party (If You Can't Come 'Round)

You can drive the car
I’ll play my ol’ guitar
Come back to me – come back to me
Ya we can get some beer
Ya lets get outta here
Come back to me – come back to me
We’ll find a place to go
No one will ever know
Somewhere that’s outta town
Put a blanket on the ground – baby
‘N we can really go crazy

Babe it ain’t a party
If you can’t come ’round
Can’t even get started
If you don’t come down
Even Saturday – ain’t a holiday
If you stay away
No – no it ain’t a party
If you can’t come ’round

Slip into somethin’ tight
We’ll slip into the night
Come back to me – come back to me
We’ll see the sun go down
‘N maybe fool around
Come back to me – come back to me
Ya we can start a fire
Maybe get a little higher
Don’t worry what to bring
Cuz we got everything – baby
And we can really go crazy

Babe it ain’t a party
If you can’t come ’round
Can’t even get started
If you don’t come down
Even saturday – ain’t a holiday
If you stay away
No – no it ain’t a party
If you can’t come ’round

(Everything I Do) I Do It For You

Look into my eyes – you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart – search your soul
And when you find me there you’ll search no more
Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for
You know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

Look into my heart – you will find
There’s nothin’ there to hide
Take me as I am – take my life
I would give it ALL – I would sacrifice
Don’t tell me it’s not worth fightin’ for
I can’t help it there’s nothin’ I want more
Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

There’s no love – like your love
And no other – could give more love
There’s nowhere – unless you’re there
All the time – all the way

Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
I can’t help it there’s nothin’ I want more
I would fight for you – I’d lie for you
Walk the wire for you – Ya I’d die for you

Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

Cuts Like A Knife

Drivin’ home this evening
I coulda sworn we had it all worked out
You had this boy believin’
Way beyond the shadow of a doubt

The I heard it on the street
I heard you mighta found somebody new
Well who is he baby – who is he
And tell me what he means to you

I took it all for granted
But how was I to know
That you’d be letting go

Now it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right
It cuts like a knife
But it feels so right

There’s times I’ve ‘bin mistaken
There’s tines I thought I’d ‘bin misunderstood
So wait a minute darlin’
Can’t you see we did the best we could

This would be the first time
Things have gone astray
Now you’ve thrown it all away

Now it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right
It cuts like a knife
But it feels so right

Please Forgive Me

it still feels like our first night together
feels like the first kiss and it’s gettin’ better baby
no one can better this
i’m still holdin’ on and you’re still the one
the first time our eyes met – it’s the same feelin’ i get
only feels much stronger – i wanna love ya longer
you still turn the fire on…

so if you’re feelin’ lonely..don’t
you’re the only one i’d ever want
i only wanna make it good
so if i love ya a little more than i should

please forgive me – i know not what i do
please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you
don’t deny me – this pain i’m going through
please forgive me – if i need ya like i do
please believe me – every word i say is true
please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you

still feels like our best times are together
feels like the first touch
we’re still gettin’ closer baby
can’t get close enough
i’m still holdin’ on – you’re still number one
i remember the smell of your skin
i remember everything
i remember all your moves – i remember you
i remember the nights – ya know i still do

so if you’re feelin’ lonely..don’t
you’re the only one i’d ever want
i only wanna make it good
so if i love ya a little more than i should

please forgive me – i know not what i do
please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you
don’t deny me – this pain i’m going through
please forgive me – if i need ya like i do
please believe me – every word i say is true
please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you

one thing i’m sure of – is the way we make love
and the one thing i depend on
is for us to stay strong
with every word and every breath i’m prayin’
that’s why i’m sayin’…

please forgive me – i know not what i do
please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you,
don’t deny me – this pain i’m going through
please forgive me – if i need ya like i do
never leave me – i don’t know what i’d do
please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you

Summer Of '69

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it til my fingers bled
It was the summer of ’69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I shoulda known we’d never get far

Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya – I’d always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain’t no use in complainin’
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenin’s down at the drive-in
And that’s when I met you

Standin’ on your Mama’s porch
You told me that you’d wait forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of ’69

Man we were killin’ time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin’ can last forever – forever, no

And now the times are changin’
Look at everything that’s come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about ya wonder what went wrong

Standin’ on your Mama’s porch
You told me it would last forever
Oh the way you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of ’69
Me and my baby in a ’69…

Walk On By

i heard that you’re leavin – this sleepy little town
the bright lights must have caught your eye cuz you ain’t hangin’ round
ya know people been talkin’ – they say you’re makin’ a mistake
gotta get on that greyhound and forget about what they say

just walk on by – walk on by
don’t look over your shoulder – keep your head up high
just walk on by

i’ve heard bad things about the city and i’m told that they’re true
better watch out for those guys out there they’re gonna hit on you
so don’t talk to no strangers – no it ain’t your style
don’t give up when the chips are down – just turn around and smile

just walk on by – walk on by
don’t look over your shoulder – keep your head up high
just walk on by – ya walk on

you’re old enough to know why – you’re old enough to know why

now you’re standing at the station – got a ticket in your hand
guess you got your mind made up – gotta get out while you can
don’t say i never told ya – now the rest is up to you
those streets can be like a battlefield – when it’s hard to make it thru…

just walk on by – walk on by
don’t look over your shoulder – keep your head up high
just walk on by

walk on by – walk on by
you’re a little bit lonely you’re a little bit shy
just walk on by

walk on by – walk on by
don’t look over your shoulder – keep your head up high
just walk on by

walk on by – walk on by
you’re a little bit lonely you’re a little bit shy
just walk on by

Cloud Number Nine

clue number one was when you knocked on my door
clue number two was the look that you wore
n’ that’s when i knew, it was a pretty sign
that something was wrong up on cloud number nine

well it’s along way up and we won’t come down tonight
well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right
and the moon is out and the stars are bright
and whatever comes s’gonna be alright
cause tonight you will be mine – up on cloud number nine
and there ain’t no place that i’d rather be
and we can’t go back but you’re here with me
yeah, the weather is really fine – up on cloud number nine

now he hurt you an you hurt me
and that wasn’t the way it was supposed to be
so baby tonight let’s leave the world behind
and spend some time up on cloud number nine

Chorus

well it’s along way up and we won’t come down tonight
well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right

well we won’t come down tonight
ya we won’t come down tonight
no we won’t come down tonight

we can watch the world go by – up on cloud number nine…

It's Only Love

When the feelin’ is ended
There ain’t no use pretendin’
Don’t ya worry – it’s only love

When your world has been shattered
Ain’t nothin’ else matters
It ain’t over – it’s only love
And that’s all – ya

When your heart has been broken
Hard words have been spoken
It ain’t easy – but it’s only love

And if your life ain’t worth livin’
And you’re ready to give in
Just remember – that it’s only love

You can live without the aggravation
Ya gotta wanna win – ya gotta wanna win

You keep lookin’ back in desperation
Over and over and over again

When your world is shattered
Ain’t nothin’ else matters
It ain’t over – it’s only love

If your life ain’t worth livin’
And you’re ready to give in
Just remember – that it’s only love
Ya – that’s all

Ya it ain’t easy baby
But it’s only love – and that’s all

13
Heaven

Oh – thinkin’ about all our younger years
There was only you and me
We were young and wild and free
Now nothin’ can take you away from me
We’ve been down that road before
But that’s over now
You keep me comin’ back for more

Baby you’re all that I want
When you’re lyin’ here in my arms
I’m findin’ it hard to believe
We’re in heaven
And love is all that I need
And I found it here in your heart
It isn’t too hard to see
We’re in heaven

Oh – once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you’re feelin’ down
Ya-nothin’ could change what you mean to me
Oh there’s lots that I could say
But just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

Chorus

I’ve been waitin’ for so long
For somethin’ to arrive
For love to come along
Now our dreams are comin’ true
Through the good times and the bad
Ya – I’ll be standin’ there by you

14
The Right Place

if it’s loving that you want – then it’s loving you’ll receive
cuz you’ve come to the right place baby
ya the door is always open – if you need some company
ya you’ve come to the right place baby

heaven knows that i can’t read your mind
we can turn it around darlin’ one step at a time
angelcan you see
that i cant live without you
babycan’t you help me please

one there’s no one left to trust
well i think you’ll agree
you’ve come to the right place baby
when you’re down on your luck
well just look around and you’ll see
that you’ve come to the right place baby

sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got – until it’s gone
but then you look around – and it was there all along
angel you gotta understand
that i don’t want be without you – oh won’t you help me if you can

i ain’t asking for the world – i just want you to believe
that you’ve come to the right place baby
when there’s no one else to hold you
well i’ll be there yes indeed

you’ve come to the right place

15
The Way You Make Me Feel

I couldn’t feel much better
than the way i feel tonight
feel like i could live forever
feel like i could fly
just when i thought i’d got it wrong
yeah – you somehow make things right

that’s the way you make me feel
it’s better than i’ve ever known it
better than it’s ever been
i can’t seem to control it, no
s’the way you make me feel
like the sun comin’ up in the morning
like holdin’ the world in your hands
in a way i could never imagine (yeah)
s’the way you make me feel

i couldn’t feel much better
than when i’m here with you
you make everything seem so easy
i’m telling you the truth
you never try to please me
but somehow…ya always do

the simple things you do to me
the simple things you say
I sometimes can’t believe – that it’s for real
yeah, that’s the way you make me feel

16
The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You

I don’t look good in no Armani Suits
No Gucci shoes – or designer boots
I’ve tried the latest lines from A to Z
But there’s just one thing that looks good on me

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me…is you

I’m not satisfied with Versace style
Put those patent leather pants – in the circular file
Sometimes I think – I might be lookin’ good
But there’s only one thing that fits me like it should

Chorus

Ya it’s you – it could only be you
Nobody else will ever do
Ya baby it’s you – that I stick to
Ya we stick like glue…

17
You're Still Beautiful To Me

Turn out the lights and close the door
Put your head on the pillow let me keep ya warm
I wanna run my hands across your face
Ya lyin’ beside ya’ still the perfect place
We’re still goin’ strong
So glad that you came along

Ya babe in every way
You’re still beautiful to me
I just – have ta say –
You’re still beautiful to me ‘n
(it’s bin a long time baby)

Lay back baby – close your eyes
Let me do everything your heart desires
When I think of the years makin’ love to you
There still ain’t nothin’ I’d rather do
There’s somethin’ I can’t deny
You sure know how ta move this guy

Ya babe in every way –
You’re still beautiful to me
I just – have ta say –
You’re still beautiful to me – can’t ya see

Still feels good – still runs deep
When you get close babe – I still get weak
Cuz in these arms – is where you belong
We’re still goin’ strong – so glad that you came along
Hey babe you’re still number one

Oh can’t ya see – you’re still beautiful to me
You’ll always be so beautiful to me
Ya babe in every way – you’re still beautiful to me

Straight From The Heart

I could start dreamin’ but it never ends
As long as you’re gone we may as well pretend
I’ve been dreamin’
Straight from the heart

You say it’s easy but who’s to say
That we’d be able to keep it this way
But it’s easier
Straight from the heart

Give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make another start
You know I’ll never go
As long as I know
It’s coming straight from the heart

I’ll see you on the street some other time
And all our words would just fall out of line
Cuz I’m dreamin’ – straight from the heart

Give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make another start
You know I’ll never go
As long as I know
It’s coming straight from the heart

19
I Still Miss You...A Little Bit

i still miss you…a little bit

you said you’d always keep me happy
you said that you would always be true
you said you’d always keep me warm at night
i didn’t know there’d be someone else there too

ya i still miss you…a little bit
don’t mind me i’ll get over
learn to live – live to love another day
i’ll be my old self in a week or two
until then i’ll be sad and blue
yes i admit i still miss you…a little bit

you said you’d always be my lover
you said you’d be with me til the end
you said we’d always be together
i wasn’t counting on you sleeping with my friends

20
All For Love

When it’s love you give (I’ll be a man of good faith)
then in love you live (I’ll make a stand. I won’t break)
I’ll be the rock you can build on
be there when you’re old
to have and to hold

When there’s love inside (I swear I’ll always be strong)
then there’s a reason why (I’ll prove to you we belong)
I’ll be the wall that protects you
from the wind and the rain,
from the hurt and pain.

Let’s make it all for one and all for love
Let the one you hold be the one you want
the one you need
’cause when it’s all for one it’s one for all
When there’s someone that you know
then just let your feelings show
and make it all for one and all for love

When it’s love you make (I’ll be the fire in your night)
then it’s love you take (I will defend, I will fight)
I’ll be there when you need me.
When honor’s at stake,
this vow I will make.
