Anytime (I'll Be There)
Anytime you need me babe, just call I'll be there
Call and see what a good friend can be
When you need someone to care
Nothing more than understanding, just a man who's undemanding
Like a leaf that's only landing suddenly goes when the wind gently blows
And I'm asking nothing of you love, only what you want to give
And I wish you what I wish myself, ss long as I may live
Other arms will surely hold you, just remember the things that I told you
When these arms of mine enfold you
It's not out of greed but for love, and for need.
Singing carols, stringing popcorn, making footprints in the snow,
Memories, Christmas memories, they're the sweetest ones I know.
Cookies taking in the kitchen, calls in rhythm everywhere,
Proxies, Christmas memories, float like snowflakes in the air.
Oh the joy of waking Christmas mornings, the family round the tree,
We had a way of making Christmas morning as merry as can be,
I close my eyes and see shining faces
Of all the children who now have children of their own
Funny, but comes December, and I remember every Christmas I've known.
Dry Your Eyes
Dry your eyes, and take your song out, it's a newborn afternoon.
If you can't recall the singer, you can still recall the tune.
Dry your eyes and play it slowly, like you're marching off to war,
Sing it like you know he'd want it, like we sang it once before.
From the center of the circle to the midst of the waving crowd.
If it ever be forgotten, sing it long and sing it loud.
Come, dry your eyes.
And he taught us more about giving than we ever cared to know.
But we came to find the secret and we never let it go.
And it was more than being holy, though it was less than being free,
Emily, Emily, Emily
Has the murmuring sound of May
All silver bells, coral shells, carousels
And the laughter of children at play
They say "Emily, Emily, Emily"
And we fade to a marvelous view
Two lovers alone and out of sight
Seeing images in the firelight
As my eyes visualize a family
It's like singin' to empty tables
Or a gallery full of ghosts
Or like givin' a great big party
Where nobody shows but the host
That's what it's been like, baby
That's what it's been like all night
Without you around to applaud me
Every night's just like closing night
And I'm singin', singin' the same old numbers
Everybody Ought To Be In Love
Empty rooms behind me, no more nights alone,
A table and some chairs for two,
Now the world will find me with someone of my own,
The loneliness at last, is through,
If everyone had someone just like you,
Then everyone would feel the way I do,
Imagine having someone always by your side.
A bed for one can just be so cold.
I Believe I'm Gonna Love You
As the morning casts a thousand bits of sunlight,
And they shine like diamonds on the morning dew,
I believe that every single one is mine alone to see,
And I believe I'm gonna love you.
If it seems that there are special stars for lovers,
And we see them scattered `cross midnight blue,
I believe that out of all this world, there meant for you and me.
I believe I'm gonna love you.
I'll take you to a magic place where no one's ever been,
Where there's carpets made of flowers, and music in the wind.
I Love My Wife
My thoughts may stray
My eyes may roam
The neighbor's grass may seem much greener
Than the grass right here at home
If pretty girls excite me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you didn't know
I love my wife
I Sing The Songs (I Write The Songs)
I've been alive forever, and I sang the very first song,
I put the words and the melodies together, I am music and I sing this song:
I sing the songs that make the whole world sing,
I sing the songs of love and special things,
I sing the songs that make the young girls cry,
I sing the songs, I sing the songs.
My home is deep within you, and I've got my own place in your soul,
Now when I look out through your eyes,
Just As Though You Were Here
[instrumental strings intro]
I'll wake each morning and I'll promise to laugh
I'll say "Good morning" to your old photograph
Then I'll speak to you, dear, just as though you were here
When purple shadows start to welcome the dark
I'll take the same old stroll we took through the park
And I'll cling to you, dear, just as though you were here
Like A Sad Song
Usually in the morning I'm filled with sweet belonging,
And everything is beautiful to see.
Even when it's raining, sounds of heaven singing
Is simply joyful music to me.
Sometimes I feel like a sad song,
Like I'm all alone without you.
So many different places, a million smiling faces,
Oh life is so incredible to me.
Especially to be near you and how it is to touch you,
Oh paradise was made for you and me.
When I go to sleep, I never count sheep, I count all the charms about Linda.
And lately it seems in all of my dreams, I walk with my arms about Linda.
But what good does it do me, for Linda doesn't know I exist,
Can't help feeling gloomy, think of all the lovin I've missed.
We pass on the street ,my heart skips a beat, I say to myself, hello, Linda.
If only she'd smile I'd stop for a while, and then I would get to know Linda.
But miracles still happen and when my lucky star begins to shine.
With one little kiss, I'll make Linda mine.
Night And Day
Night and day, you are the one
Only you 'neath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It's no matter, darling, where you are
I think of you day and night
Night and day, why is it so
That this longin' for you follows wherever I go ?
In the roarin' traffic's boom
In the silence of my lonely room
Stargazer! You with your head in the heavens,
You'll never get by, walking that high off the ground.
Hey, moon dreamer, I've been around and I see it,
That higher you get, the harder they let you down.
You pay your dues, it seems forever,
And if you're clever, you may be in for a while, then you're out of style.
Hey, stargazer, probably think I'm crazy, and you haven't heard one single word I said.
No I don't want to burst your bubble, but you got trouble,
Don't you know the higher the top, the longer the drop,
Hey, stargazer (jump on it, Sam, get all over that thing!).
I just found joy
I'm as happy as a baby boy
With another brand-new choo-choo toy
When I'm with my sweet Lorraine
She got a pair of eyes
That are bluer than the summer skies
When you see them you will realize
Why I love my sweet Lorraine
The Only Couple On The Floor
The band played songs from years ago,
There wasn't one we didn't know,
The singer's voice was soft and low,
The lights came on, we didn't know
I held your body close to mine,
Your eyes were closed and so were mine.
I fell in love with you once more,
Just like a million times before.
The Saddest Thing Of All
Through a blurry window out above the rooftop,
I keep looking at the rain-swept sky
In this small apartment where she used to love me,
I just sit here as my life goes by.
There's no doorbell ringing, no sweet sounds of singing,
Just a silent room where tears won't dry.
Life is sad when people hurt you, sad when friends desert you,
Sad when dreams get lost beyond recall,
But remembering that love stopped blossoming,
And that's the saddest thing of all.
You Are The Sunshine Of My Life
You are the sunshine of my life, that's why I'll always be around
You are the apple of my eye, forever you'll stay (be) in my heart
I know that this is the beginning, Though I loved you for one million years
But if I thought our love was ending, I'd find myself drowning in my own tears
You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around, you are the apple of my eye
Forever you'll stay (be) in my heart
You must have known that I was lonely, because you came to my rescue
And though I know that this is heaven, how could so much love be inside of you
You are the sunshine of my life, that's why I'll always be around
