Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song

Why do stars
Fall down from the sky?
Everytime you walk by
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Ooh-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, close to you
Ooh-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, close to you
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, close to you

Let's take a lifetime to say
I knew you well
For only time will tell us so
And love may grow for all we know

He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
And he don't care (Baby, baby)
Don't care (Baby, baby)

Baby, baby
Feels like maybe things will be all right
Baby, baby
Your love's made me
Free as a song singin' forever

Only yesterday when I was sad
And I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave
The past and all it's tears behind me
Tomorrow may be even brighter than today
Since I threw my sadness away
Only yesterday

(Guitar Solo)

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

I don't wanna talk
About the things we've gone through
Though it's hurting me
Now it's history
I've played all my cards
And that's what you've done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

I don't wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You've come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence

The winner takes it all, oh

(Guitar Solo Continued)

The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That's her destiny, hee

I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore (The winner takes it all, oh)
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore, oh, oh, oh, oh

(Guitar Solo Until End)
