About "Beaches" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"Beaches" by Bette Midler, which consists of 3 songs.
I am the captain and this is my shrine.
Lord of the manor. See what I leave behind.
River in flames, cities on fire.
Yes, I'm a relic trapped in the wire.
Hydrogen fuel, it burns so clean,
Throbs in the veins; a mother lovin' machine.
She is my wife. Her mechanical heart
Constantly serving 'til death do us part.
The Glory Of Love
"This is a song I've been singing for a long time.
It's like an old friend.
But, you know, I think it,
It's only recently that I discovered what it's really about."
You've got to give a little, take a little,
And let your poor heart break a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.
You've got to laugh a little, cry a little,
Wind Beneath My Wings
Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, ohhh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
To never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.
So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.
