The Living Daylights

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:30 Written by

(corrections are welcome...)

Hey driver where're we going? I swear my nerves are showing
Set my hopes up way too high, the living's in the way we die.
Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand people I'm the one they frame.
I've been waiting long for one of us to say:
Save the darkness let it never fade away -
In the living daylights
in the living daylights.

Alright, hold on tight now
it's down, down to the wire
Get your hopes up way too high
The living's in the way we die.

Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand changes, everything's the same.
I've been waiting long for one of us to say:
Save the darkness, let it never fade away -
In the living daylights
living daylights
living daylights. Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand people, I'm the one they frame
In the living daylights
in the living daylights. The Living daylights
Set your hopes up way too high
The Living daylights
The living's in the way we die
The Living daylights
Set your hopes up way too high
The Living daylights
The living's in the way we die

The Best Man In The World

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:29 Written by

You've been taken by the city
The oldest story in the world
You come for the gold
And end up bought and sold

You can't seem to make no difference
With all the lies that you've been told

What you don't know is...
You're the best man in the world

There's more than meets the eye
There's so much you don't see
Like the power of your heart
Driving your destiny

Magic takes what she deserves
A lesser heart would lose its nerve

You've been taken by the city
But you've done better than you know

You're part of the sky
You're part of the street
You've got the talent to satisfy me

What you don't know is...
You're the best man in the world
Best man in the world
Best man in the world

There's more than meets the eye
There's so much you don't see
Like the power of your heart
Driving your destiny
Magic takes what she deserves
A lesser heart would lose its nerve

You've been taken by the city
But you've done better than you know

You're part of the sky
You're part of the street
You've got the talent to satisfy me

What you don't know is...
You're the best man in the world
Best man in the world
Best man in the world
Best man in the world
Best man in the world
Best man in the world

Performed by Ann Wilson

The Music of Goodbye

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:28 Written by

A song I know so well
The music of goodbye again
It's there each time we say hello
As always there's no reason why again
You kiss me with your eyes
And in your arms I fly again
But even as we touch the clouds
There in the quiet is goodbye again
Perhaps the way I hold you
Makes you afraid I'll hold you
Makes you afraid to love me, love me
As through the night we dance
The tender dance of try again
I hear it playing softly and sadly
The music of goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

A View To A Kill

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:28 Written by

Meeting you, with a view to a kill,
Face to face, in secret places. Feel the chill.
Nightfall covers me, but you know,
the plans I'm making still over sea.
Could it be the whole earth opening wide
A sacred why? A mystery gaping inside
The weekends; why?

Until we dance into the fire, that fatal kiss is all we need.
Dance into the fire to fatal sounds of broken dreams.
Dance into the fire; that fatal kiss is all we need.
Dance into the fire.

Choice for you is the view to a kill.
Between the shades, assassination standing still.
The first crystal tears fall as snowflakes on your body,
First time in years to drench your skin with lover's rosy stain.
A chance to find a phoenix for the flame,
A chance to die, but can we

Dance into the fire, that fatal kiss is all we need.
Dance into the fire to fatal sounds of broken dreams.
Dance into the fire; That fatal kiss is all we need.
Dance into the fire, when all we see is a view to a kill.

All Time High

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:27 Written by

All I wanted was a sweet distraction for an hour or two.
Had no intention to do the things we've done.
Funny how it always goes with love, when you don't look, you find.
But then we're two of a kind, we move as one.

We're an all time high, we'll change all that's gone before.
Doing so much more than falling in love.
On an all time high, we'll take on the world and wait.
So hold on tight, let the flight begin.

I don't want to waste a waking moment; I don't want to sleep.
I'm in so strong and so deep, and so are you.
In my time I've said these words before, but now I realize
My heart was telling me lies, for you they're true.

We're an all time high, we'll change all that's gone before.
Doing so much more than falling in love.
On an all time high, we'll take on the world and wait.
So hold on tight, let the flight begin.

So hold on tight, let the flight begin.
We're an all time high.

Letting Go

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:26 Written by

Letting go of a dream
You dream day and night

Changing ways
When your ways are no longer right

Holding back
Just as hard as chasing a star
And true love can be love from afar

Letting go, turning 'round, and walking away
From the face that you long to face every day

May not make sense right now
But in time it will
For true love knows just when to stand still

Well, you can't hold a river
Or fly like an eagle
Or capture the wind rolling by

And the love that you hold out
Is not worth the taking
And if you are wise
Then you won't even try

Letting go, saying no
Is so hard to do
Think of what's best for her
Not what's best for you

And if you can, you've found love
Forever you know
It's only your hands
Letting go

And you can't hold a river
Or fly like an eagle
Or capture the wind rolling by

And the love that you hold out
Is not worth the taking
And if you are wise
Then you won't even try

Letting go, saying no
Is so hard to do
Think of what's best for her
Not what's best for you

And if you can, you've found love
Forever you know
'Cause it's only your hands
Letting go

It's only your hands
Letting go

Music John Barry

There's A Feeling Breaking my Heart

There is some feeling
is breaking my heart
who knows
if somebody cares

One dream at a time

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:25 Written by

One dream at a time, day to day, night to night.
This time round we just might get it right.
One song at a time, what's the rush, why pretend?
Being sure makes more sense in the end.

The looks, the words, the feelings,
Feel true to me, can't stand this waiting.
Your eyes tell me I found you.
When I'm around you're all I see.

One dream at a time, no, that's too hard to do.
Forget all that I had said to you.
True love can take more than one dream at a time.

Music John Barry
Original Lyrics: Don Black

Close Your Eyes (Dreams)

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:24 Written by

Dreams -
You seem so far away
Shadows of yesterday
haunt my life

Dreams -
I can't recall their names
I thought they'd never change
Some dreams never die

Still they part...
We choose to turn the page
Sometimes they lose their way
From our hearts.

Dreams -
They say they don't come true
But my heart remembers you
Some dreams never die

You'll come back in the night..
You'll come back in the night..
close your eyes..
close your eyes..

Dreams -
They say they don't come true
But my heart remembers you
Some dreams never die

You'll come back in the night..
You'll come back in the night..
Close your eyes..
Close your eyes..

John Barry,
performed by Sarah Brightman

Moonraker

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:24 Written by

Where are you? Why do you hide?
Where is that moonlight trail that leads to your side?
Just like the Moonraker goes in search of his dream of gold,
I search for love, for someone to have and hold.

I've seen your smile in a thousand dreams,
Felt your touch and it always seems
You love me, You love me.

Where are you? When will we meet?
Take my unfinished life and make it complete.
Just like the Moonraker knows his dream will come true someday,
I know that you are only a kiss away.
I've seen your smile in a thousand dreams,
Felt your touch and it always seems
You love me, You love me.
