10CC lyrics - "The Things We Do For Love"

Too many broken hearts have fallen in the river Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea, You lay your bets and then you pay the price The things we do for love, the things we do for love. Communication is the problem to the answer You've got her number and your hand is on the phone The weather's turned and all the lines are down The things we do for love, the things we do for love. Like walking in the rain and the snow When there's nowhere to go And you're feelin' like a part of you is dying And you're looking for the answer in her eyes. You think you're gonna break up Then she says she wants to make up. Ooh you made me love you Ooh you've got a way Ooh you had me crawling up the wall. Like walking in the rain and the snow When there's nowhere to go And you're feelin' like a part of you is dying And you're looking for the answer in her eyes. You think you're gonna break up Then she says she wants to make up. Ooh you made me love you Ooh you've got a way Ooh you had me crawling up the wall. A compromise would surely help the situation Agree to disagree but disagree to part When after all it's just a compromise of The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love The things we do for love, the things we do for love

The Beatles lyrics - "Across The Universe"

(Lennon/McCartney) Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind Possessing and caressing me Jai Guru Deva OM Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes They call me on and on across the universe Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe Jai Guru Deva OM Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Sounds of laughter shades of live are ringing through my open ears Inciting and inviting me Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns It calls me on and on, across the universe Jai Guru Deva OM Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Jai Guru Deva Jai Guru Deva Jai Guru Deva Jai Guru Deva Jai Guru Deva (fade out)

The Beatles - "Got To Get You Into My Life"

Album: "Revolver" (1966)
(Lennon/McCartney) I was alone, I took a ride I didn't know what I would find there Another road where maybe I could see another kind of mind there Ooh, then I suddenly see you Ooh, did I tell you I need you Every single day of my life You didn't run, you didn't lie You knew I wanted just to hold you And had you gone you knew in time we'd meet again For I had told you Ooh, you were meant to be near me Ooh, and I want you hear me Say we'll be together every day Got to get you into my life What can I do, what can I be When I'm with you I want to stay there If I'm true I'll never leave And if I do I know the way there Ooh, then I suddenly see you Ooh, did I tell you I need you Every single day of my life Got to get you into my life Got to get you into my life I was alone, I took a ride I didn't know what I would find there Another road where maybe I could see another kind of mind there Then suddenly I see you Did I tell you I need you Every single day?

The Bee Gees lyrics - "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?"

I can think of younger days when living for my life Was everything a man could want to do. I could never see tomorrow, but I was never told about the sorrow. And how can you mend a broken heart? How can you stop the rain from falling down? How can you stop the sun from shining? What makes the world go round? How can you mend this broken man? How can a loser ever win? Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again. I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees And misty memories of days gone by We could never see tomorrow, noone said a word about the sorrow. And how can you mend a broken heart? How can you stop the rain from falling down? How can you stop the sun from shining? What makes the world go round? How can you mend this broken man? How can a loser ever win? Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

CHICAGO lyrics - "Beginnings"


When I'm with you, it doesn't matter where we are, Or what we're doing. I'm with you, that's all that matters. Time passes much too quickly when we're together laughing. I wish I could sing it to you, oh no, I wish I could sing it to you. Mostly I'm silent. Never think about words to say. When I kiss you, I feel a thousand different feelings. The color of chills all over my body. And when I feel them, I quickly try to decide which one I should try to put into words, oh no, Try to put into words. Mostly I'm silent. Only the beginning of what I want to feel forever. Only the beginning. Only just the start. I've got to get you into my life. Got to get you next to me. Only the beginning. Only just the start.

PHIL COLLINS lyrics - "Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)"

How can I just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh You're the only one who really knew me at all How can you just walk away from me, when all I can do is watch you leave Cos we've shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears You're the only one who really knew me at all So take a look at me now, oh there's just an empty space And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face Ooh take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space And you coming back to me is against all odds and that's what I've got to face I wish I could just make you turn around, turn around and see me cry There's so much I need to say to you, so many reasons why You're the only one who really knew me at all So take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face Now take a look at me now, cos there's just an empty space But to wait for you, is all I can do and that's what I've got to face Take a good look at me now, cos I'll still be standing here And you coming back to me is against all odds It's the chance I've gotta take Take a look at me now

PHIL COLLINS lyrics - "I Wish It Would Rain Down"

You know I never meant to see you again and I only passed by as a friend All this time I stayed out of sight I started wondering why Now I, I wish it would rain down, down on me Yes I wish it would rain, rain down on me now You said you didn't need me in your life I guess you were right Well I never meant to cause you no pain But it looks like I did it again Now I, I wish it would rain down, down on me Yes I wish it would rain, rain down on me now Though your hurt is gone, mines hanging on, inside And I know it's eating me through every night and day I'm just waiting on your sign 'Cos I know, I know I never meant to cause you no pain And I realize I let you down But I know in my heart of heart of hearts I know I'm never gonna hold you again Now I, I wish it would rain down, down on me Yes I wish it would rain, rain down on me now

PHIL COLLINS lyrics - "You Can't Hurry Love"

I need love, love ooh, ease my mind And I need to find time someone to call mine; My mama said You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait She said love don't come easy But it's a game of give and take You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait Just trust in a good time No matter how long it takes How many heartaches must I stand Before I find the love to let me live again Right now the only thing that keeps me hanging on when I feel my strength, ooh, it's almost gone I remember mama said You can't hurry love No you'll just have to wait She said love don't come easy It's a game of give and take How long must I wait How muck more must I take Before loneliness Will cause my heart, heart to break? No, I cant bear to live my life alone I grow impatient for a love to call my own But when I feel that I, I can't go on Well these precious words keep me hanging on I remember mama said You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait She said love don't come easy Well, it's a game of give and take You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait Just trust in a good time No matter how long it takes, now break! Now love, love don't come easy But I keep on waiting Anticipating for that soft voice To talk to me at night For some tender arms hold me tight I keep waiting Ooh, till that day But it ain't easy (Love don't come easy) No, you know it ain't easy My mama said You can't hurry love No, you'll just have to wait She said love don't come easy It's a game of give and take...

Neil Diamond - "I'm A Believer"

I thought love was only true in fairy tales Meant for someone else, but not for me Love was out to get me That's the way it seemed Disappointment haunted all my dreams Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer Not a trace of doubt in my mind I'm in love and I'm a believer I couldn't leave her if I tried I thought love was more or less a giving thing Seems the more I gave, the less I got What's the use in trying, all you get is pain When I needed sunshine, I got rain Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer Not a trace of doubt in my mind I'm in love and I'm a believer I couldn't leave her if I tried (instrumental) Love was out to get me That's the way it seemed Disappointment haunted all my dreams Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer Not a trace of doubt in my mind I'm in love and I'm a believer I couldn't leave her if I tried Saw her face, now I'm a believer Not a trace of doubt in my mind I'm in love, and I'm a believer 1979 Version I thought love was only true in fairy tales Meant for someone else but not for me Paper houses made to stand with paper nails That's all I thought that love could ever be What's the use in trying All you get is pain When I needed sunshine I got rain Then I saw her face Now I'm a believer Not a trace Of doubt in your mind I'm in love And I'm a believer I couldn't leave her if I tried Not if I tried Thought that love Was more or less a givin' thing Seems the more I gave the less I got Like a flower that grows, Love's like a living thing Living things don't like to be forgot Love was out to get me That's the way it seemed Disappointment haunted all my dreams Then I saw her face I'm a believer Not a trace of doubt in my mind I'm in love I'm a believer I'm a believer I'm in love I'm a believer I'm in love Yeah I'm a believer

Marvin Gaye - "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing"

(Nickolas Ashford/Valerie Simpson) Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby Ain't nothing like the real thing Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby Ain't nothing like the real thing I got your picture hangin' on the wall It can't see or come to me when I call your name I realize it's just a picture in a frame I read your letters when you're not near But they don't move me And they don't groove me like when I hear Your sweet voice whispering in my ear Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby Ain't nothing like the real thing I play the game, a fantasy I pretend I'm not in reality I need the shelter of your arms to comfort me No other sound is quite the same as your name No touch can do half as much to make me feel better So let's stay together I got some memories to look back on And though they help me when you phone I'm well aware nothing can take the place of being there So let me get the real thing So let me get the real thing Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby Ain't nothing like the real thing Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby Ain't nothing like the real thing

CHRIS ISAAK lyrics - "Wicked Game"

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you. It's strange what desire will make foolish people do. I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you. And I never dreamed that I knew somebody like you. No, I don't want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart) No, I don't want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart) With you. With you. (This world is only gonna break your heart) What a wicked game to play, to make me feel this way. What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you. What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way. What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you and, I want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart) No, I want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart) With you. The world was on fire and no one could save me but you. It's strange what desire will make foolish people do. I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you. And I never dreamed that I'd loose somebody like you no, No, I want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart) No, I want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart) With you. (This world is only gonna break your heart) With you. (This world is only gonna break your heart) No, I... (This world is only gonna break your heart) (This world is only gonna break your heart) Nobody loves no one.

The Kinks - "Ape Man"

I think I'm sophisticated 'Cos I'm living my life Like a good homosapien But all around me everybody's multiplying Till they're walking round like flies man So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages In the zoo man 'Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees I am an ape man I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized 'Cos I'm a strict vegetarian But with the over-population and inflation and starvation And the crazy politicians I don't feel safe in this world no more I don't want to die in a nuclear war I want to sail away to a distant shore And make like an ape man I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man I'm an ape man I'm a king kong man I'm ape ape man I'm an ape man 'Cos compared to the sun that sits in the sky Compared to the clouds as they roll by Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies I am an ape man Lalalalalalala In man's evolution he has created the cities and The motor traffic rumble, but give me half a chance And I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle 'Cos the only time that I feel at ease Is swinging up and down in a coconut tree Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man I'm an ape, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man I'm a king kong man, I'm a voo-doo man I'm an ape man I look out my window, but I can't see the sky 'cos the air pollution is fogging up my eyes I want to get out of this city alive And make like an ape man Lalalalalalala Come and love me, be my ape man girl And we will be so happy in my ape man world I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man I'm a king kong man, I'm a voo-doo man I'm an ape man I'll be your tarzan, you'll be my jane I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane And we'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day Just like an ape man I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man I'm a king kong man, I'm a voo-doo man I'm an ape man. I don't feel safe in this world no more I don't want to die in a nuclear war I want to sail away to a distant shore And make like an ape man. Lalalalalalala

Frankie Laine -- Mule Train

Mule train, yeah, yeah. Mule train: clippetty-clopping over hill and plain. Seems as how they’ll never stop. Clippetty-clop, clippetty-clop, clippetty, clippetty, clippetty, clippetty, clippetty-clopping along. There’s a plug of chaw tobaccy for a rancher in Corolla; A guitar for a cowboy way out in Arizona; A dress of callico for a pretty Navajo. Get along mule, get along. Mule train, yeah, yeah. Mule train: clippetty-clopping along the mountain chain. Seems as though they're gonna recah the top. Clippetty-clop, clippetty-clop, clippetty, clippetty, c lippetty, clippetty, clippetty-clopping along. There’s some cotton thread and needle for the folks away out yonder. A shovel for a miner who left his home to wander. Some rheumatism pills for the settlers in the hills. Get along mule, get along. Mule train, yeah, yeah. Mule train: clippetty-clopping through the wind and rain. They'll keep going till they drop. Clippetty-clop, clippetty-clop, clippetty, clippetty, clippetty, clippetty, clippetty-clopping along. There’s a letter full of sadness and it’s black around the border. A pair of boots for someone who had them made to order. A Bible in the pack for the Reverend Mr Black. Get along mule, get along. Get along mule, get along. (Mule train.) Get along, get along.

John Mayer - "Daughters"

Album: Heavier Things
I know a girl She puts the color inside of my world But she's just like a maze Where all of the walls all continually change And I've done all I can To stand on her steps with my heart in my hands Now I'm starting to see Maybe it's got nothing to do with me Fathers, be good to your daughters Daughters will love like you do Girls become lovers who turn into mothers So mothers, be good to your daughters too Oh, you see that skin? It's the same she's been standing in Since the day she saw him walking away Now she's left Cleaning up the mess he made So fathers, be good to your daughters Daughters will love like you do Girls become lovers who turn into mothers So mothers, be good to your daughters too Boys, you can break You'll find out how much they can take Boys will be strong And boys soldier on But boys would be gone without the warmth from A woman's good, good heart On behalf of every man Looking out for every girl You are the god and the weight of her world So fathers, be good to your daughters Daughters will love like you do Girls become lovers who turn into mothers So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Paul McCartney and Wings lyrics - "Don't Let It Bring You Down"

Though some things in life are hard to bear Don't let it bring you down Should the sand of time run out on you Don't let it bring you down Don't go down - don't go underground Things seem strange, but they change How they change Up and down your carousel will go Don't let it bring you down Don't go down - don't get out of town Get to know how it goes, how it goes When the price you have to pay is high Don't let it bring you down

Paul Mccartney and Wings lyrics - "Mull Of Kintyre"

Mull of kintyre Oh mist rolling in from the sea, My desire is always to be here Oh mull of kintyre Far have I traveled and much have I seen Dark distant mountains with valleys of green. Past painted deserts the sunset's on fire As he carries me home to the mull of kintyre. Mull of kintyre Oh mist rolling in from the sea, My desire is always to be here Oh mull of kintyre Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen Carry me back to the days I knew then. Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir Of the life and the time of the mull of kintyre. Mull of kintyre Oh mist rolling in from the sea, My desire is always to be here Oh mull of kintyre Smiles in the sunshine And tears in the rain Still take me back to where my memories remain Flickering embers growing higher and higher As they carry me back to the mull of kintyre Mull of kintyre Oh mist rolling in from the sea, My desire is always to be here Oh mull of kintyre Mull of kintyre Oh mist rolling in from the sea, My desire is always to be here Oh mull of kintyre

Paul McCartney lyrics - "Warm And Beautiful"

A love so warm and beautiful stands when time itself is falling, A love so warm and beautiful never fades away. Love, faith and hope are beautiful when your world is touched by sadness, To each his own is wonderful, love will never die. Sunlight's morning glory tells the story of our love, Moonlight on the water brings me in spiration ever after. A love so warm and beautiful stands when time itself is calling, A love so warm and beautiful never fades away, never fades away.

MOODY BLUES lyrics - "The Night: Nights In White Satin"

Nights in white satin, Never reaching the end, Letters I've written, Never meaning to send. Beauty I'd always missed With these eyes before, Just what the truth is I can't say anymore. 'Cause I love you, Yes, I love you, Oh, how, I love you. Gazing at people, Some hand in hand, Just what I'm going thru They can understand. Some try to tell me Thoughts they cannot defend, Just what you want to be You will be in the end, And I love you, Yes, I love you, Oh, how, I love you. Oh, how, I love you. Nights in white satin, Never reaching the end, Letters I've written, Never meaning to send. Beauty I'd always missed With these eyes before, Just what the truth is I can't say anymore. 'Cause I love you, Yes, I love you, Oh, how, I love you. Oh, how, I love you. 'Cause I love you, Yes, I love you, Oh, how, I love you. Oh, how, I love you.
MOODY BLUES lyrics - "Late Lament" Breathe deep the gathering gloom, Watch lights fade from every room. Bedsitter people look back and lament, Another day's useless energy spent. Impassioned lovers wrestle as one, Lonely man cries for love and has none. New mother picks up and suckles her son, Senior citizens wish they were young. Cold hearted orb that rules the night, Removes the colours from our sight. Red is grey and yellow white. But we decide which is right. And which is an illusion???.

Two old friends meet again Wearin' older faces And talk about the places they've been Two old sweethearts who fell apart Somewhere long ago How are they to know Someday they'd meet again And have a need for more than reminiscin' Maybe this time It'll be lovin' they'll find Maybe now they can be more than just friends She's back in his life And it feels so right Maybe this time, love won't end It's the same old feeling back again It's the one that they had way back when They were too young to know when love is real But somehow, some things never change And even time hasn't cooled the flame It's burnin' even brighter than it did before It got another chance, and if they take it... Maybe this time It'll be lovin' they'll find Maybe now they can be more than just friends She's back in his life And it feels so right Maybe this time, love won't end She's smilin' like she used to smile way back then She's feelin' like she used to feel way back when They tried, but somethin' kept them Waiting for this magic moment Maybe this time It'll be lovin' they'll find Maybe now they can be more than just friends She's back in his life And it feels so right Maybe this time... Maybe this time Maybe this time love won't end

MICHAEL MURPHY lyrics - "Wild Fire"

She comes down from Yellow Mountain On a dark flat land she rides On a pony she named Wildfire With a whirlwind by her side On a cold Nebraska night Oh they say she died one winter When there came a killin' frost And the pony she name Wildfire Busted down his stall In a blizzard he was lost She ran calling Wildfire She ran calling Wildfire She ran calling Wildfire By the dark of the moon I planted But there came an early snow There's been a hoot owl howlin' by my window now For six nights in a row She's coming for me I know And on Wildfire we're both gonna go We'll be riding Wildfire We'll be riding Wildfire We'll be riding Wildfire On wildfire we're gonna ride, oh We're gonna leave sodbustin' behind Get these hard times right on out of our minds Riding Wildfire

OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN lyrics - "Hopelessly Devoted To You"

Guess mine is not the first heart broken My eyes are not the first to cry I'm not the first to know There's just no getting over you You know I'm just a fool who's willing To sit around and wait for you But, baby, can't you see There's nothing else for me to do? I'm hopelessly devoted to you But now there's nowhere to hide Since you pushed my love aside I'm out of my head Hopelessly devoted to you Hopelessly devoted to you Hopelessly devoted to you My head is saying, "Fool, forget him." My heart is saying, "Don't let go. Hold on till the end." And that's what I intend to do I'm hopelessly devoted to you But now there's nowhere to hide Since you pushed my love aside I'm out of my head Hopelessly devoted to you Hopelessly devoted to you Hopelessly devoted to you

I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while But I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight As you stopped to say "Hello" Oh you wished me well, you couldn't tell That I'd been crying over you, crying over you Then you said "so long". left me standing all alone Alone and crying, crying, crying crying It's hard to understand but the touch of your hand Can start me crying I thought that I was over you but it's true, so true I love you even more than I did before but darling what can I do For you don't love me and I'll always be Crying over you, crying over you Yes, now you're gone and from this moment on I'll be crying, crying, crying, crying Yeah crying, crying, over you

The Gifts of Beauty and Song

Written by: Tom Adair and George Bruns
Sung by: Chorus
Notes: Although it's not really a song, it is listed as a separate track on the soundtrack (both old and new) and is one of the few pieces of vocals on the soundtrack.
A troubadour is a wandering ministrel.

One gift, beauty rare,
Gold of sunshine in her hair,
Lips that shame the red, red rose,
She'll walk in springtime wherever she goes!

One gift, the gift of song,
Melody your whole life long!
The nightingale her troubadour,
Bringing his sweet serenade to her door.


I Wonder

Written by: Winston Hiber, Ted Sears and George Bruns
Sung by: Briar Rose (Mary Costa)

[Briar Rose:]
I wonder, I wonder,
I wonder why each little bird has a someone
To sing to, sweet things to,
A gay little love melody

I wonder, I wonder,
I wonder if my heart keeps singing,
Will my song go winging
To someone, who'll find me
And bring back a love song to me.


Once Upon A Dream

Written by: Sammy Fain and Jack Lawrence
Sung by: Briar Rose (Mary Costa), Prince Phillip (Bill Shirley) and Chorus
Notes: Reprisals of this song by the chorus occur at the beginning and end of the movie.

[Briar Rose:]
I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a-gleam
Yet I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you do,
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you do,
You love me at once,

[Prince Phillip and Briar Rose:]
The way you did once upon a dream

[Prince Phillip:]
I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a-gleam

[Chorus:]
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you do,
You love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream.


Skumps

Written by: Tom Adair, George Bruns and Erdman Penner
Sung by: King Stefan (Taylor Holmes) and King Hubert (Bill Thompson)

[King Hubert:]
Skumps!

[King Stefan:]
Skumps!

[King Hubert:]
Skumps!

[King Stefan:]
A toast to this night!

[King Hubert:]
The outlook is rosy,

[King Stefan:]
But the future is bright,

[Both:]
Our children will marry,
Our kingdoms unite,
Skumps! Skumps! Skumps!

[King Stefan:]
Skumps!

[King Hubert:]
Skumps

[King Stefan:]
A toast to the home!

[King Hubert:]
One grander by far than a palace in Rome!

[King Stefan:]
Ah, let me fill up your glass,
That glass was all foam!

[Both:]
Skumps! Skumps! Skumps!


Sleeping Beauty Song

Written by: George Bruns and Tom Adair
Sung by: Chorus

[Chorus:]
Sleeping Beauty fair,
Gold of sunshine in your hair,
Lips that shame the red, red rose,
Dreaming of true love in slumber repose

One day he will come,
Riding over the dawn,
When you awaken to love's first kiss,
Till then, Sleeping Beauty, sleep on

One day you'll awaken to love's first kiss,
Till then, Sleeping Beauty, sleep on.

Oscar Hammerstein II and Richard Rodgers - "The Sound of Music"

My Day in the hills has come to an end I know A Star has come out, to tell me it's time to go But deep in the dark green shadows Are voices that urge me to stay So I stop and I wait and I listen For one more sound, for one more lovely thing that the hills might say The hills are alive with the sound of music The songs they have sung for a thousand years The hills fill my heart with the sound of music My heart wants to sing every song it hears My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds That rise from the lake to the trees My heart wants to sigh like the chimes That flies from a church on a breeze To laugh like a brook when it trips And falls over stone on its way To sing through the night Like a lark who is learning to pray I'll go to the hills when my heart is lonely I know I will hear what I've heard before My heart will be blessed with the sound of music And I'll sing once more

Bruce Springsteen - "Born To Run"

In the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway American dream At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines Sprung from cages out on highway nine Chrome wheeled, fuel injected And steppin' out over the line Baby this town rips the bones from your back It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap We gotta get out while we're young 'Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend I want to guard your dreams and visions Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims And strap your hands across my engines Together we could break this trap We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back Will you walk with me out on the wire 'Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider But I gotta find out how it feels I want to know if your love is wild Girl I want to know if love is real Beyond the palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard The girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors And the boys try to look so hard The amusement park rises bold and stark Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight In an everlasting kiss The highway's jammed with broken heroes On a last chance power drive

"Young At Heart"

Music by Johnny Richards with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, 1954
Fairy tales can come true, It can happen to you If you're young at heart For it's hard, you will find, To be narrow of mind If you're young at heart You can go to extremes With impossible schemes You can laugh when your dreams Fall apart at the seams And life gets more exciting With each passing day And love is either In your heart or on its way Don't you know that it's worth Every treasure on Earth To be young at heart For as rich as you are It's much better by far To be young at heart And if you should survive To 105 Look at all you'll derive Out of being alive Then here is the best part You have a head start If you are among The very young at heart Don't you know that it's worth Every treasure on Earth To be young at heart For as rich as you are It's much better by far To be young at heart And if you should survive To 105 Look at all you'll derive Out of being alive Then here is the best part You have a head start If you are among The very young at heart
