Barry Manilow – The Gonzo Hits Medley lyrics

One voice singing in the darkness

All it takes is one voice

Singing so they hear what's on your mind

And when you look around you'll find

There's more than one voice singing in the darkness

Joining with that one voice

Each and every note another octave

Hands are joined and fears unlocked

If only one voice should start it on it's own

We need just one voice facing the unknown

And then that one voice would never be alone

It takes that one voice

I've been alive forever, and I wrote the very first song

I put the words and the melodies together

I am music and I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing

I write the songs of love and special things

I write the songs that make the young girls cry

I write the songs, I write the songs

And maybe the old songs will bring back the old times

Maybe the old lines will sound new

Maybe she'll lay her head on my shoulder

Maybe old feelings will come through

Maybe we'll start to cry and wonder why we ever walked away

Maybe the old songs will bring back the old times and make her wanna stay

We're goin' hoppin' (Hop)

We're goin' hoppin' today

Where things are poppin' (Pop)

The Philadelphia way

We're gonna drop in (Drop)

On all the music they play

On the Bandstand (Bandstand)

We're goin' swingin' (Swing)

We're gonna swingin' the crowd

And we'll be clingin' (Cling)

And floatin' high as a cloud

The phones are ringin' (Ring)

My mom and dad are so proud

I'm on Bandstand (Bandstand)

And I'll jump, and hey, I may even show 'em my handstand

Because I'm on, because I'm on the American Bandstand

When we dance real slow I'll show all the guys in the grandstand

What a swinger I am, I am on American Bandstand

I don't want to walk without you baby

I don't want to walk without you, Baby

Walk without my arm about you, Baby

Oh, Baby, please come back or you'll break my heart for me

'Cause I don't want to walk without you

No, siree

Last night, I waved goodbye, now it seems years

I'm back in the city, where nothin' is clear

But thoughts of me, holdin' you, bringin' us near

And tell me

When will our eyes meet?

When can I touch you?

When will this strong yearnin' end?

And when will I hold you again?

Even now when I never hear your name

And the world has changed so much since you've been gone

Even now I still remember and the feeling's still the same

And this pain inside of me goes on and on, even now

Even now when I have come so far

I wonder where you are

I wonder why it's still so hard without you

Even now when I come shinin' through

I swear I think of you and God, I wish you knew

Somehow, Somehow

I saw you at the Beechwood Cafe

You looked at me and then you looked away

That was some kind

Some kind of friend you turned out to be

You said you had places that you had to be

Now who is gonna be there for me

That was some kind

Some kind of friend you turned out to be

Lady that was some kind

Some kind of friend you turned out to be

Baby that was some kind

Some kind of friend you turned out to be

(City rhythm, oo, city rhythm, oo, city rhythm, oo)

When my heart (city rhythm) is torn apart (oo)

By the love I wish I had

Well, I spend my (city rhythm) nights in the city's lights (oo)

And things don't seem so bad

Ya know the movement seems to soothe me

And the tempo takes control

And I lose my blues

When the New York City rhythm fills my soul

It's the New York City rhythm runnin' though life (city rhythm)

The poundin' beat of the city streets that keeps my dreams alive

I'm lost (I'm lost), I'm found (I'm found)

I'm up (I'm up), I'm down, (I'm down) but somehow I survive

It's got to be the New York City rhythm in my life

Oh, it's got to be the New York City rhythm in my life, in my life

At the Copa (Co!), Copacabana (Copacabana)

The hottest spot north of Havana (here)

At the Copa (Co!), Copacabana

Music and passion were always the fashion

At the Copa.... They fell in love

If I could find the words then I would write it all down

If I could only find a voice I would speak

But it's there in my eyes so can't you see me tonight

Come on and look at me and read 'em and weep

It's there in my eyes and coming straight from my heart

It's running silent and angry and deep

It's there in my eyes and it's all I can say

Come on look at me and read 'em and weep

Read 'em and weep - for all the hours we'll be spending alone

Read 'em and weep - for the dreams we'll ignore

Running silent and deep

For all those promises we promised to keep

Why don't you look at me and read 'em and weep

Why don't you look at me and read 'em

When I wanted you I needed you

And I still can't bring myself to say I'm over you

When I gave you time to make up your mind

You turned you back on me

And now I turn my back on you

But somewhere down the road

Our roads are gonna cross again

It doesn't really matter when

But somewhere down the road

I know that heart of yours will come to see

That you belong with me

This one's for you wherever you are

To say that nothin's been the same since we've been apart Oh-uh-oh

This one's for all the love we once knew

Like everything else I have, this one's for you

Doctor, my woman is comin' back home late today

Coudja maybe give me somethin'?

'cause the feeling is gone and I must get it back right away

Before she sees that

I've been up, down, tryin' to get the feeling again

All around, tryin' to get the feeling again

The one that made me shiver

Made my knees start to quiver

Every time she walked in

And I've looked high (high), low (low)

Everywhere I possibly can (high)

But there's no (no) tryin' to get the feelin' again

It seemed to disappear as fast as it came

I've been up, down, tryin' to get the feeling again

And I'm ready to take a chance again

Ready to put my love on the line with you

Been livin' with nothing for show for it

You get what you get when you go for it

And I'm ready to take a chance again with you

Let's hang on to what we got

Don't let go girl, we got a lot

Got a lot of love between us

Hang on, hang on, hang on

Come with me

Somewhere in the night we will know

Everything lovers can know

You're my song, music too magic to end

I'll play you over and over again

Lovin' so warm, movin' so right

Closin' our eyes and feelin' alive

We'll just go on burnin' bright

Somewhere in the night

Baby, I love you, come, come, come into my arms

Let me know the wonder of all of you

Baby, I want you now, now, now, and hold on fast

Could this be the magic at last?

We dreamers have our ways

Of facing rainy days

And somehow we survive

We keep the feelings warm

Protect them from the storm

Until our time arrives

Then one day the sun appears

And we come shining through those lonely years

I made it through the rain

I kept my world protected

I made it throught the rain

I kept my point of view

I made it through the rain

And found myself respected

By the others who

Got rained on too

And made it through

Looks like we made it

Looks like we made it

I'm singin' to the world, it's time we let the spirit come in

Let it come on in

I'm singin' to the world, everybody's caught in the spin

Look at where we've been

We've been runnin' around, year after year

Blinded with pride, blinded with fear

But it's daybreak, if you wanna believe

It can be daybreak, ain't no time to grieve

Said it's daybreak if you'll only believe

And let it shine, shine, shine

All around the world (sing it to the world, sing, sing)

It's from me it's for you

It's from you, it's for me

It's a worldwide symphony

I write the songs that make the whole world sing

I write the songs of love and special things

I write the songs that make the young girls cry

I write the songs, I write the songs
