LOVE HER   

 

Love her, and tell her each day

That girl needs to know, tell her so

Tell her everything I couldn't say

Like she's warm, and she's sweet, and she's fine

Whoh, love her, like I should have done

 

And hold her, and show her you care

When her world is blue, see her through

Any time that she needs you, be there

By her side, be the guy, that I couldn't be

And love her, love her for me

Please, love her, love her for me

 

Hold her, and show her you care

When her world is blue, see her through

Any time that she needs you, be there

By her side, be the guy, that I couldn't be

And love her, love her for me

Yeah, come on and love her

Love her for me

 

 

THE SEVENTH DAWN

 

I remember, when I feel lonely, the way you kissed me in the rain

And my darling I remember the golden laughter whenever spring breaks through again

I'll be near you, when nights are misty, or when the dawn star comes shining through

Then I'll find you, I'll be just a dream behind you

For my love will lead me to the seventh dawn and you

 

Then I'll find you, I'll be just a dream behind you

For my love will lead me to the seventh dawn and you

 

 

MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF

 

Oh, breaking up is so very hard to do

If you really love him, and there's nothing I can do

Don't try to spare my feelings, just tell me that we're through

And make it easy on yourself, make it easy on yourself

Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

 

And if the way I hold you can't compare to his caress

No words of consolation will make me miss you less

My darling, if this is goodbye, I just know I'm gonna cry

So run to him before you start crying too

And make it easy on yourself, make it easy on yourself

Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

Oh, baby, it's so hard to do

 

So make it easy on yourself, make it easy on yourself

Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

 

 

THERE GOES MY BABY

 

There goes my baby

Moving on down the line

I wonder where, wondering where

Wonder where she is bound

I broke her heart and made her cry

Now I'm alone, so all alone

What can I do, what can I do

(There goes my baby)

Whoh, whoh, whoh

(There goes my baby)

I want my baby

(There goes my baby)

I need my baby

 

I wanna know if she loved me

Did she really love me

Was she just playing me for a fool

I wonder why she left me

Why did she leave me

So all alone, so all alone

And I was gonna tell her that I love her

And that I need her here by my side

To be my guide

I wanna know where is my

Where is my baby

I want my baby

I need my baby

Whoh, whoh, whoh, where's my baby

(There goes my baby)

I want my baby

(There goes my baby)

I need my baby

(There goes my baby)

I want my baby

Whoh, whoh, whoh, where's my

Where is my baby

I want my baby

 

 

FIRST LOVE NEVER DIES

 

All at once I miss you

So long since I've kissed you

How I loved to look into your eyes

Yes I still dream about you

My world is lost without you

For you were my first love

And first love never, ever dies

 

Whenever I feel lonely

I'm thinking of you only

One last kiss and then we said goodbye

The love I left behind me

Comes back to remind me

That you were my first love

And first love never, ever dies

 

The love I left behind me

Comes back to remind me

That you were my first love

And first love never, ever dies

 

And if you're thinking of me

And you find you still love me

There's no use to go on living life

Let's hurry to each other

For there could be no other

Yes, you were my first love

And first love never, ever dies

(First love never dies)

First love never, ever dies

THE GIRL I LOST IN THE RAIN

 

Last night I walked through town

The rain was tumbling down

And I could hardly see

I just lost my heart

I gave it from the start

She made a fool of me

Now and then a light

Filled the misty night

Though my heart was filled with pain

That's when I first saw the girl I lost in the rain

 

You were standing there

With raindrops in your hair

Your smiling face aglow

It gave me such a thrill

It burns within me still, I know

I never heard a sound

But when I turned around

You suddenly were gone

I know I should forget

I tell myself and yet

Your memory lingers on

Even if I tried searching far and wide, all would be in vain

For I could never find the girl I lost in the rain

I could never find the girl I lost in the rain

 

 

LAND OF 1000 DANCES

 

La la la la la

La la la la la la la la la la

Oh get it, yeah

YOU'RE ALL AROUND ME

 

In the morning when everything has ended

And night's cover has lifted without you

In my mind I am here alone suspended

With memories of you

 

In the streets I can hear the day beginning

Another day beginning without you

If you don't come back to me tomorrow

I don't know what I'll do

 

You're all around me, everywhere

And in this city's lonely places

This crowded sea of faces

You're there, you're there

 

You're all around me, everywhere

And in this city's lonely places

This crowded sea of faces

You're there, you're there

 

I tried so hard to keep our love together

Things that you could never ever know

And I'm resigned to loving you forever

I know I can't let go

 

You're all around me, everywhere

And in this city's lonely places

This crowded sea of faces

You're there, you're there

You're there

 

LOVE MINUS ZERO   

 

My love she speaks like silence

With no ideals of violence

She doesn't have to say she's faithful

Yet she's true like ice, like fire

 

People carry roses

Make promises by the hour

My love lasts like the flowers

Valentines can't buy her

 

In the dime stores and bus stations

People talk of situations

Read books, repeat quotations

Draw conclusions on the wall

 

Some speak of the future

My love she speaks softly

She knows there's no success like failure

And that failure's no success at all

 

My love she speaks like silence

With no ideals of violence

She doesn't have to say she's faithful

Yet she's true like ice, like fire

 

People carry roses

Make promises by the hour

My love lasts like the flowers

Valentines can't buy her

Valentines can't buy her

Valentines can't buy her

Valentines can't buy her

 

 

I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT ANYMORE

 

In my neighbourhood, where folks don't live so good now

The rooms are small, most the building's made of wood

I hear the neighbours talking about you and me

Yes I've heard most every word

Cause the talking's loud, and the walls are much too thin

 

"She don't really love him", oh that's what I heard them say

"She sure wasn't thinking of him today"

"I saw her in the courtyard, say that girl in room one forty nine"

"Talking to a boy I've never seen before"

"And standing there together, don't you know they looked so fine"

No, I don't want to hear it anymore

I don't want to hear it anymore

Cause the talk just never ends

And the heartache soon begins

The talk is so loud, and the walls, they're much too thin

 

"Lord, ain't it sad", said the woman 'cross the hall

"That when a nice boy like that falls in love"

"Hey, it's just too bad that he had to go and fall"

"For a girl who doesn't care for him at all"

No, I don't want to hear it anymore

I don't want to hear it anymore

Cause the talk just never ends

And the heartache soon begins

Oh, they talk so loud

And the walls are much too thin

 

Whoh, I wish they wouldn't talk so loud

And expose my heartache to the crowd

These walls around me are so thin

Sometimes I think they're moving in, yeah

 

HERE COMES THE NIGHT   

 

Here comes the night, see the stars in the sky

Shining high above, light of love, darling just you and I

And here comes the night, how I thrill to your kiss

Music fills the air, everywhere, night of magic and bliss

Think of the moments, the hours and hours that we were apart

Moments and hours that kept bringing showers of tears to my heart

Whoh, whoh, whoh, whoh, and here comes the night like the others before

But tonight's divine, you are mine once more

 

Think of the moments, the hours and hours that we were apart

Moments and hours that kept bringing showers of tears to my heart

Whoh, whoh, whoh, whoh, and here comes the night like the others before

But tonight's divine, you are mine once more

And here, here comes the night

BUT I DO

 

I don't know why I love you

(But I do)

Whoh yeah

(Yes I do)

I don't know why I cry so, whoh whoh

(But I do)

Oh yeah

(Yes I do)

I only know I'm lonely and that I want you only

Don't know why I love you baby, but I do

 

I can't sleep nights because I

(Feel so restless)

Whoh yeah

(Oh so restless)

I don't know what to do

(Feel so helpless)

Whoh yeah

(Oh so helpless)

And since you went away, I cry both night and day

Don't know why I love you baby, but I do

 

My days have been so lonely, yeah, my nights are so blue now

I don't know how I stand it, oh but honey I do

I don't know why I love you

(But I do)

Whoh yeah

(Yes I do)

I don't know why I cry so, whoh, whoh

(But I do)

Whoh yeah

(Yes I do)

I guess I'm wasting time, but I got to clear my mind

Don't know why, love you baby, but I do

Don't know why, love you baby, but I do

Don't know why, love you baby, but I do

 

 

MY SHIP IS COMING IN

 

Girl, you've been so good to me

Stayin' by my side through the bad times

All my dreams never came true somehow

But things are gonna be different now

And baby, my ship is coming in

Baby, baby, my ship is coming in

And won't it be fine

Girl we're gonna make it this time

 

You can throw away that shabby dress

Buy yourself the finest things in town, girl

Dry your eyes, we're celebrating

Oh, there's so many good times awaiting

Baby, my ship is coming in

Baby, baby, my ship is coming in

And whoh won't it be fine

Girl we're gonna make it this time

 

I know it's been tough on you

But through it all, you've been so true

Happy to be just loving me

And anything you want, it's yours cause

Baby, my ship is coming in

Baby, baby, my ship is coming in

Baby, baby, my only ship, I've been waiting and it's coming in

Oh can't you see it baby

Can't you feel the ship, I know it's coming in

Yeah, yeah just for me and you, everything we wanted

Everything we ever wanted is coming in, yeah

So dry your eyes

 

 

THE SUN AIN'T GONNA SHINE ANYMORE

 

Loneliness is the cloak you wear

A deep shade of blue is always there

 

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky

The tears are always clouding your eyes

When you're without love

Baby

 

Emptiness is the place you're in

With nothing to lose, but no more to win

 

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky

The tears are always clouding your eyes

When you're without love

 

Lonely without you, baby

Girl I need you

I can't go on

 

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky

(The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky)

The tears are always clouding your eyes

(The tears are always clouding your eyes)

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

When you're without love

Baby

 

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

Not anymore

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

Baby, baby

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

No, no, baby, baby

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

Baby

 

 

AFTER THE LIGHTS GO OUT

 

As the sun goes down my silent little room is growing dim

And the man next door is saying what a lousy day it's been

And the clock on the wall, I'd like to put its ticking to an end

In the room below the girl is crying for her guy again

After the lights go out what will I do

After the lights go out facing the night without you

 

There's a pigeon that's been sitting on my window sill all day

I guess he's lonely too, I wonder if his love has flown away

When I get upon my feet, I need a cup of coffee anyway

Someone called for you, but I hung up the 'phone, what could I say

After the lights go out what will I do

After the lights go out facing the night without you

 

I don't look for her, I find her in the shadow of my mind

For she's just a girl whose memory will be wiped away with time

Any second now the lamp down the street will show its light

And I just can't seem to tear away her kisses from the night

After the lights go out what will I do

After the lights go out facing the night without you

Facing the night without you

Facing the night without you

Facing the night without you

Facing the night without you

 

(BABY) YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME   

 

You don't have to tell me, girl, because I know

Baby, don't you think I knew it long ago

Whoh oh baby, you don't have to tell me

Baby cause I already know, you see

Baby, you don't have to tell me goodbye

 

There is someone new who gets your kiss now

What about the times before - don't they exist now

Whoh oh baby, you don't have to tell me

Baby, cause I already know, you see

Baby, you don't have to tell me goodbye

Have a little mercy now, baby

Try to be a little kind, baby

Well I know what is on your mind

Baby, you don't have to tell me goodbye

 

Go ahead and tell me that's life, you'd stay if you could

You are giving me a taste of life for good

Whoh oh baby, you don't have to tell me

Baby, cause I already know, you see

Baby, you don't have to tell me goodbye

Have a little mercy now, baby

Try to be a little kind, baby

Well I know what is on your mind
Baby, you don't have to tell me goodbye

 

 

MY LOVE IS GROWING

 

My love is growing, gonna tell my baby now, my love is growing

Don't know how I lived before, every day I want you more

Gonna tell the world, my love is growing

 

My love is growing, gonna tell my baby now, my love is growing

I never realised, it took me by surprise, but now I know,

My love is growing

 

I never really thought too much about it, but girl I feel so good, I want to shout it

Don't know what I'm gonna do if you tell me that we're through

But now I know, my love is growing

My love is growing, gonna tell my baby now, my love is growing

 

Don't know how I lived before, every day I want you more

Gonna tell the world, my love is growing

Yeah my love keeps growing, oh it's so strong, my love is growing

 

 

LOOKING FOR ME

 

I walk through the streets of the city

As quiet as quiet can be

The boys on the corner are looking for a fight

And all of 'em looking for me

 

I can't help it if I love her

She can't help loving me

But she was Eddie's girl and he's got a lot of friends

And all of 'em looking for me

 

Never ran from trouble, don't intend to start now

But if a fight's is a-coming, I'll face it somehow

 

Gotta get on by 'em, find my baby and then

Go to a place where no-one knows our face

And start all over again

 

Never ran from trouble, don't intend to start now

But if a fight's a-coming, I'll face it somehow

 

I walk through the streets of the city

As quiet as quiet can be

The boys on the corner are looking for a fight

And all of 'em looking for me

Yeah, all of 'em looking for me

Yeah, all of 'em looking for me

 

 

YOUNG MAN CRIED

 

It's funny, a million little things still run through my mind

The dream ends, it's getting late but time has left me behind

I find that every hour I live, I live for you

Everything I did, I did for you

You're gone again and a young man cries for you

 

Your face I still see on a pillow in a grey sleepy dawn

It's over, the cat's on that pillow wondering where the girl's gone

I start to think about the things you used to say

I keep letting dreams get in my way

You're gone again and a young man cried today

 

My own shadows surround me, they won't go away

I keep hearing your voice, and I cry out your name

You're gone again and a young man cried today

 

 

EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE ALL RIGHT

 

Put up your shotgun Papa, everything is gonna be all right, all right, all right, all right

Put up your shotgun Papa, everything is gonna be all right, all right, all right, all right

Here comes the preacher, there's gonna be a wedding here tonight, all right, all right

 

I aint gonna run, I know it aint no use

So you can tell your brothers to turn me loose

Put up your shotgun Papa, everything is gonna be all right, all right, all right, all right

Here comes the preacher, there's gonna be a wedding here tonight, all right, all right

 

I didn't wanna marry, but now we've tied the knot

Cause something made me realise what I really got

Put up your shotgun Papa, everything is gonna be all right, all right, all right, all right

Here comes the preacher, there's gonna be a wedding here tonight, all right, all right

Put up your shotgun Papa, everything is gonna be all right, all right, all right, all right

Put up your shotgun Papa, everything is gonna be all right, all right, all right, all right

Here comes the preacher, there's gonna be a wedding here tonight, all right, all right

 

I NEED YOU   

 

Since the day I lost you girl I just can't face the world

I can't help feeling kind of small

I let you go one day, but now I ain't ashamed to say

I need you, you know that I need you

For without your love I'm just no good at all

Oh ho yeah

 

I guess I lost my head, I know I must have said

A lot of things to make you cry

I made myself a lonely man, but now I've come to understand

I need you, you know that I need you

And I'm gonna keep needing you till the day I die

 

I need you to confide in, yes I do

I need you to take pride in, yes I do

I need your shoulder to cry on

You're all I've got to rely on

 

Baby baby take me back again

Cause now I've come to understand

I need you, you know that I need you

And I'm gonna keep needing you till the day I die

 

 

THE SUN AIN'T GONNA SHINE ANYMORE (ALTERNATIVE VERSION)

 

Loneliness is the cloak you wear

A deep shade of blue is always there

 

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky

The tears are always clouding your eyes

When you're without love

Baby

 

Emptiness is the place you're in

With nothing to lose, but no more to win

 

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky

The tears are always clouding your eyes

When you're without love

 

Lonely without you, baby

Girl I need you

I can't go on

(Oh, I can't go on)

 

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky

The tears are always clouding your eyes

(The tears are always clouding your eyes)

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

When you're without love

Baby

 

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

Not anymore

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

Baby, baby

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

No, no, baby, baby

(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)

Baby
