Midnight Cowboy

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:38 Written by

Midnight Cowboy, Midnight Cowboy,
See the lonesome Midnight Cowboy,
Once his hopes were high as the sky,
Once a dream was easy to buy.
Too soon, his eager fingers were burned,
Soon life's lonely lessons are learned.
Hearts are made for caring,
Life is made for sharing,
Love is all that's left in the end.
Midnight Cowboy, Midnight Cowboy,
See the lonely Midnight Cowboy.
Once his hopes were high as the sky,
Once a dream was easy to buy.
Too soon, his eager fingers were burned,
Soon life's lonely lessons are learned.
Hearts are made for caring,
Life is made for sharing,

Duet

Love is all that's left in the end,
Love can turn the tide for a friend,
Love can hold a dream together,
Love is all that lasts forever,
Love is all that's left in the end,
Love can turn the tide for a friend,
Love can hold a dream together,
Love is all that lasts forever,

Midnight Cowboy, Midnight Cowboy,
See the lonely Midnight Cowboy.
Midnight Cowboy, Midnight Cowboy,
See the lonely Midnight Cowboy.
Midnight Cowboy, Midnight Cowboy,
See the lonely Midnight Cowboy.
Midnight Cowboy, Midnight Cowboy,
See the lonely Midnight Cowboy.

The Girl With The Sun In Her Hair

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:37 Written by

I'll wait a year for two weeks in July
Ill fly to the sun and my love will be there

Wistful and warm as when we said goodbye
The girl with the sun in her hair

I see her now as she walks by the sea
Tanned by the sun and salt in the air
Lovely but lost as she waits silently
The girl with the sun in her hair

There's fields to be run and hills to climb
I hope July arrives on time

Not long to wait for the summer to bring
The girl with the sun in her hair

[Bridge]

There's fields to be run and hills to climb
I hope July arrives on time

Not long to wait for the summer to bring
The girl with the sun in her hair

Arrivederci Baby

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:37 Written by

Arrivederci Baby
Sorry I gotta go
Arrivederci Baby
Sorry I gotta go
But before I leave you baby
There's one thing I want you to know

I really love you baby
Love you with all my heart
I really love you baby
Love you with all my heart
And when I come back baby
We ain't never going to part

Ciao ciao
Ciao ciao
Ciao ciao
I'll have to dig you later 'cos I'm gonna leave you now

Arrivederci Baby
Sorry I gotta go
Arrivederci Baby
Sorry I gotta go
But when I come back baby
You ain't never gonna be alone

By John Barry & Elia Lightborn

The More Things Change

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:36 Written by

Touch my hand and we will be, part of one another, you and me
Changing winds and shifting sands, we will still be touching hands
The more things change, the more our love will continue to grow
We will never change, in this world of easy come and go

Like the ocean and the shore we'll be bound together, ever more
Far off places distant lands, we will still be touching hands
The more things change, the more our love will continue to grow
We will never change, in this world of easy come and go

Touch my hand and we will be, part of one another, you and me.

A Man Alone (as performed by Pat Boone)

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:35 Written by

He keeps his heart in hiding,
his feelings are in disguise.
He may not seem exciting,
but danger is in his eyes.

No love may try to trap him
or capture him in his spell.
No love can ever hold him,
for he knows intrigue too well.

This is a silent stranger,
his destiny is unknown.
He plays the game of danger,
and this is a man alone.

Alone!

--J.Barry / R. Tillison / Russell T. Lesslie

You Love Who You Love from 'Brighton Rock'

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:35 Written by

You Love Who You Love,
No one has any say.
And sensible words,
Will not get in my way.
You love who you love,
Good or bad, right or wrong.
The heart will decide,
Where it is you belong.

You love who you love,
We can’t help how we’re made.
A love that seemed sure,
Is a love that can fade.
When you look at him,
You can’t see what I see.
When I look at him,
I can see he loves me.

A soon as our eyes met,
I didn’t think about what’s right.
It was just as if
Someone turned out the light.

(OR: alternate version of middle 8)

Love is like a game of chance,
You place your bets and hope to win.
We all hold our breath,
When the wheel starts to spin.

You Love Who You Love,
I don’t care what he’s done.
He may have a past,
But I know he’s the one.

I won’t ever change,
We’re together for good.
I don’t give a damn what they say.
You love who you love come what may

Music by John Barry
Lyrics by Don Black

I'll Never Let You Down from 'Brighton Rock'

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:35 Written by

I’ll never let you down
You Know You can rely on me
I’ll be as true as true can be
I’ll never let you down

I’ll never hold you back,
I’m not like anyone you’ve met.
Know, what you see is what you get,
I’ll never let you down

Let’s face it you can bet your life on me
There’s lots of fly by nights around.
Why don’t we take a walk beside the sea?
And we might stop for tea.

I won’t stand in your way
I’d say you landed on your feet
Maybe fate decided we should meet
I’ll never let you down.

Music by John Barry
Lyrics by Don Black

See If I Don't (From Brighton Rock)

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:34 Written by

Too late for salvation,
But I don’t care
It’s hell and damnation,
Too late for prayer
They think they can destroy me,
I’m strong, I know they won’t
Because when you feel nothing
I’m taking over
See if I don’t

Too late for repentance,
Why pray in vain?
I’ll serve out my sentence
Eternal pain
Priests say that God will save us
Oh yes?
Not me he won’t
Who cares, hell doesn’t scare me
I’m gonna show them
See if I don’t

If I am damned already
Might as well kill him
See if I don’t.

Music: John Barry
Lyrics: Don Black

You and Me from 'Brighton Rock'

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:34 Written by

You and me, have things in common
Bet we'd get on really well.
You're not like the others round here.
You are good I can tell.

You seem like a girl with feeling,
Maybe we could talk again.
It's nice to meet a girl who's friendly.
Makes a change now and then.

You're the kind who could keep a secret
I could spot a phoney for miles
I can see the things they are hiding
Underneath their smiles.

You and me have things in common
I've enjoyed our little chat
You and me have things in common
Bet my life on that.

Music by John Barry
Lyrics by Don Black

To Love And Be Loved

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:33 Written by

To love and be loved
sweet captivation
No space between us
No separation

To live in your world
Without condition
to know and be known
no inhibition

I want you in joy and pain
sleeping, moving, waking
Every secret overturned
Love beyond the making

To love and be loved
all doubt confounded
Truth in the beauty
Freedom unbounded
To love and be loved
