Barbra Streisand – Above The Law lyrics

(Barry Gibb, Barbra Streisand & Stephen Gibb)

[Barbra:]
This is me talking to you
Tell me what your heart can do ?
Take me by surprise, whatever you see
You'll never be alone with me

I close or open the door
Telling you that less is more
You cannot disguise whatever you do
No one is above the law

In these dark and troubled times
People just surviving
We live a double life

You'd be safe and warm at home
Something else is going on
We don't have to kiss and say no more about it
And if your eyes are watching me

[Both:]
Baby, life could be so beautiful
And we become invisible
The pleasure is the punishment
For the crime

[Barbra:]
Break away the chains that bind
It's not enough to be satisfied
It's knowing how it all begins
Or knowing where the heart belongs
And we all make mistakes

[Both:]
It's your heart and my heart
And no one can take part
And our love
Is love above the law

[Barry:]
So you decide we go insane
I know what you came here for
Whether you are mine
I'll never be sure
We'll ever be above the law
On this dark and stormy night

[Barbra:]
(Hmm hmm...)

[Barry:]
Where these walls may hide us

[Barbra:]
(The walls may hide us...)

[Barry:]
You sigh and let me in
You let me hold you in these arms of mine

[Barbra:]
(One flame inside)

[Barry:]
Tomorrow is eternity

[Barbra:]
(Temptation eyes)

[Barry:]
And we may get to kiss and say no more about it

[Barbra:]
(No tears to cry)

[Barry:]
And if my eyes are watching you

[Both:]
Baby, life could be so beautiful ([Barry:] So beautiful)
And everything is possible ([Barbra:] Everything is possible)
And we become invisible ([Barbra:] We become invisible )

It's your heart and my heart
And no one can take part
I'll always be with you
It's what I'm living for
The end of my rainbow
Is outside your window
And our love is one love
Love above the law ([Barbra:] Love above the law )
It's your heart and my heart
And no one can take part
I'll always be with you
It's what I'm living for ([Barbra:] It's what I'm living for )

The end of my rainbow
Is outside your window
And our love is one love

[Barbra:]
This is me talking to you
Tell me what your heart can do?

[Fade]
