Song: Kari
Artist: Stephen Bishop
Album: Bowling in Paris (1989)
Composer: Bishop/Spiro

Every time I get close to you
You pull further away
Don't say you got something better to do
Y' know I want you to stay

'Cause here in the dark
I need to feel something from you
And you know it's true
I love you, Kari

Kari, I'm gonna make you mine tonight
I'll make it last forever
Kari, y' know I wanna hold you tight
I'm gonna make you change your mind

I was always the one to play with
When you had the time
Standing under the blue blue skyline
While you made up your mind

I know you're more than your daddy's little girl
When you're next to me
I'm so glad I found you
Love is all around you

Kari, I'm gonna make you mine tonight
It's gonna last forever
Kari, I don't wanna wait alone tonight
I know you're gonna change your mind

I can't tell you
Everything that you want to hear
But the world can't change
The way that I feel
Whenever you're near

Kari....

And here in the dark
I need to feel something from you
And you know that, Kari, I love you
Kari, you know it's true
I'm so glad I found you
Love is all around you

Kari, I'm gonna make you mine tonight
I'll make it last forever
Kari, y' know I wanna hold you tight
I'm gonna make you change your mind

Kari, Kari, Kari
It's gonna last forever
Kari, I'm gonna make you mine
I'm gonna make you mine

Kari, Kari, Kari
It's gonna last forever
Kari, I'm gonna make you mine
I'm gonna make you mine

It's gonna last forever...

(repeat to fade)
