        Lyrics From The Past



Against All Odds
(Take A Look At Me Now)

Phil Collins  
 
 How can I just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
You're the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me, when all I can do is watch you leave
íCos we've shared the laughter and the pain, and even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that's what I've got to face

I wish I could just make you turn around, turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you, so many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
But to wait for you, well that's all I can do and that's what I've got to face
Take a good look at me now, 'cos I'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
That's the chance I've got to take, oh, ooh

Just take a look at me now 
All My Loving The Beatles Lennon/McCartney Close your eyes and I'll kiss you Tomorrow I'll miss you Remember I'll always be true And then while I'm away I'll write home every day And I'll send all my loving to you I'll pretend that I'm kissing The lips I am missing And hope that my dreams will come true And then while I'm away I'll write home every day And I'll send all my loving to you All my loving, I will send to you All my loving, darling I'll be true Close your eyes and I'll kiss you Tomorrow I'll miss you Remember I'll always be true And then while I'm away I'll write home every day And I'll send all my loving to you All my loving, I will send to you All my loving, darling I'll be true All my loving, All my loving Woo, all my loving, I will send to you

Always and Forever Lionel Richie Always and forever Each moment with you Is just like a dream to me That somehow came true I know tomorrow will still be the same 'Cause we have a life of love That won't ever change There'll always be sunshine When I look at you It's something I can't explain Just the things that you do If you get lonely Call me and take A second to give to me That magic you make And every day love me your own special way Melt all my heart away with a smile Take time to tell me that you really care And we'll share tomorrow together Yes, I'm the one who loves you I'll always love you forever

As Tears Go By Marianne Faithfull Greatest Hits It is the evening of the day, I sit and watch the children play. Smiling faces I can see But not for me, I sit and watch as tears go by. My riches can't buy everything, I want to hear the children sing. All I hear is the sound Of rain falling on the ground, I sit and watch as tears go by. It is the evening of the day, I sit and watch the children play. Doing things I used to do They think are new, I sit and watch as tears go by. Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm ...

Baby I Love Your Way Peter Frampton Shadows grow so long before my eyes And they're moving across the page Suddenly the day turns into night Far away from the city but don't hesitate 'Cause your love won't wait hey Ooh baby I love your way every day Wanna tell you I love your way every day Wanna be with you night and day Moon appears to shine and light the sky With the help of some fireflies I wonder how they have the power shine shine shine I can see them under the pines But don't hesitate 'cause your love won't wait hey Ooh baby I love your way every day Wanna tell you I love your way every day Wanna be with you night and day uh yeah But don't hesitate 'cause your love won't wait I can see the sunset in your eyes Brown and grey and blue besides Clouds are stalking islands in the sun Wish I could dry one out of season But don't hesitate 'cause your love won't wait hey Ooh baby I love your way every day Wanna tell you I love your way uuhh Wanna be with you night and day Ooh baby I love your way every day Wanna tell you I love your way uuhh Wanna be with you night and day

BLUE MOON The Marcels - words by Lorenz Hart, music by Richard Rodgers Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own Blue Moon, you knew just what I was there for You heard me saying a prayer for Someone I really could care for And then there suddenly appeared before me The only one my arms will ever hold I heard somebody whisper, "Please adore me" And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold Blue Moon, now I'm no longer alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own

California Dreamin' The Mamas & The Papas All the leaves are brown And the sky is grey I've been for a walk On a winter's day I'd be safe and warm If I was in L.A. California dreaming On such a winter's day Stopped into a church I passed along the way Well, I got down on my knees And I pretend to pray You know the preacher likes the cold He knows I'm gonna stay California dreaming On such a winter's day All the leaves are brown And the sky is grey I've been for a walk On a winter's day If I didn't tell her I could leave today California dreaming On such a winter's day California dreaming On such a winter's .... day

From: shomodj@tippnet.co.yu (Boris Somodjvarac) To: boomersint@aol.com - I remember Elvis Presley Last night I turned the radio on for the midnight news Suddenly I thought I'd died of a broken heart When I heard the announcer say: The great rock singer Elvis Presley, also known as the king, Just died in a hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, USA At the age of fortytwo years. I remember Elvis Presley, Lord, how I love to hear him sing So I'll adore him just for ever, for he's the one and only "King". I remember Elvis Presley, and he won't ever set me free Like he was singing "Now or never" He's just a golden memory. "Good luck charm" is not for ever Good luck songs, we need 'em ever Again, again I'll play your songs, 'Cause in my mind you haven't gone Es folgt Zitat aus: "Are you lonesome tonight" I remember Elvis Presley, Lord, how I love to hear him sing,... My dear friend I won't forget you When I need you I can hear you "King" though I don't know where or when, There'll be a day we meet again. Es folgt Zitat aus: "Can't help falling in love" Elvis Presley, I wanna thank you for all the happiness You gave so many people all over the world During many, many years. Ha, I remember the disc-jockey was playing "Jailhouse Rock" When I had my first date with a beautiful girl And since that evening, you've been my friend, Elvis! I remember Elvis Presley Lord, how I love to hear him sing,... So I'll adore him just for ever, he's just a golden memory.
Have I Told You Lately? Have I Told You Lalety that I love you? Have I told you There's no one above you? Fill my heart with gladness, Take away all my sadness, Ease my troubles, that's what you do. For the morning sun in all it's glory, Meets the day with hope and comfort too, And you fill my life with laughter, You can make it better, Ease my troubles, that's what you do. There's a love less defined, And its yours and its mine, Like the sun. And at the end of the day, We should give thanks and pray, To The One, to The One. Have I Told You Lately that I love you? Have I told you There's no one above you? Fill my heart with gladness, Take away all my sadness, Ease my troubles, that's what you do. There's a love less defined, And its yours and its mine, Like the sun. And at the end of the day, We should give thanks and pray, To The One, to The One. So, Have I Told You Lately That I Love you? Have I told you There's no one above you? Fill my heart with gladness, Take away all my sadness, Ease my troubles, that's what you do. Take away all my sadness, Fill my life with gladness, Ease my troubles, that's what you do. Take away all my sadness, Fill my life with gladness, Ease my troubles, that's what you do. Fill my life with gladness, Ease my troubles, that's what you do.. Words & music by Van Morrison





DIAMONDS AND RUST

(Words and Music by Joan Baez)

Well I'll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that's not unusual
It's just that the moon is full
And you happened to call
And here I sit
Hand on the telephone
Hearing a voice I'd known
A couple of light years ago
Heading straight for a fall

As I remember your eyes
Were bluer than robin's eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from?
A booth in the midwest
Ten years ago
I bought you some cufflinks
You brought me something
We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

Well you burst on the scene
Already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms
And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free
Yes the girl on the half-shell
Would keep you unharmed

Now I see you standing
With brown leaves falling around
And snow in your hair
Now you're smiling out the window
Of that crummy hotel
Over Washington Square
Our breath comes out white clouds
Mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me
We both could have died then and there

Now you're telling me
You're not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words
And at keeping things vague
Because I need some of that vagueness now
It's all come back too clearly
Yes I loved you dearly
And if you're offering me diamonds and rust
I've already paid
