Hello Again - Gilbert O'Sullivan

If I'm not feeling any less sour

I promised myself to treat myself

And visit a nearby tower,

And climbing to the top,

Will throw myself off

In an effort to make it clear to who

Ever what it's like when your shattered

Left standing in the lurch, at a church

Where people 're saying,

"My God that's tough, she stood him up!

No point in us remaining.

May as well go home."

As I did on my own,

Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday,

I was cheerful, bright and gay,

Looking forward to, but who wouldn't do,

The role I was about to play

But as if to knock me down,

Reality came around

And without so much as a mere touch,

Cut me into little pieces

Leaving me to doubt,

All about God and His mercy

For if He really does exist

Why did He desert me

In my hour of need?

I truly am indeed,

Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that

There are more hearts

Broken in the world

That can't be mended

Left unattended

What do we do? What do we do?

(instrumental break)

Now looking back over the years,

And what ever else that appears

I remember I cried when my father died

Never wishing to have cried the tears

And at sixty-five years old,

My mother, God rest her soul,

Couldn't understand, why the only man

She had ever loved had been taken

Leaving her to start with a heart

So badly broken

Despite encouragement from me

No words were ever spoken

And when she passed away

I cried and cried all day

Alone again, naturally

Alone again, naturally

SUDDENLY (Billy Ocean)

I used to think that love was just a fairy tale

Until that first hello until that first smile

But if I had to do it all again I wouldn't change a thing

Cause this love is everlasting

Suddenly life has new meaning to me

There's beauty up above and things we never take notice of

You wake up suddenly you're in love

Girl you're everthing a man could want and more

One thousand words are not enough to say what I feel inside

Holding hands as we walk along the shore

Never felt like this before now you're all I'm living for

Each day I pray this love affair would last forever

There's beauty up above and things you never take notice of

You wake and suddenly you're in love

PS. I love this song!!

Fly Me to the Moon

Fly me to the moon

And let me play among the stars.

Let me see what spring is like

On Jupiter and Mars.

In other words, hold my hand

In other words, baby, kiss me.

Fill my life with song

And let me sing forevermore.

You are all I long for

All I worship and adore.

In other words, please be true

In other words, I love you.

There's no time for us

There's no place for us

What is this thing that builds our dreams

Yet sleeps away from us

Who wants to live forever

Who wants to live forever

There no chance for us

It's all decided for us

This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

Who wants to live forever

Who wants to life forever


Who dares to love forever


When love must die


But touch my tears with your lips

Touch my world with your finger tears

And we can have forever

And we can love forever

Forever is our today

Who wants to live forever

Who wants to live forever

Forever is our today

Who waits forever anyway

Love soft as an easy chair
Love fresh as the morning air
One love that is shared by two
I have found with you

Like a rose under the april snow
I was always certain love would grow
Love ageless and evergreen
Seldom seen by two

You and I will make each night a first
Every day a beginning
Spirits rise and their dance is unrehearsed
They warm and excite us, cause we have the brightest love

Two lives that shine as one
Morning glory and midnight sun
Time weve learned to sail above
Time wont change the meaning of one love
Ageless and ever evergreen
