YOU STEPPED INTO MY LIFE

You stepped into my life and I'm, oh, so happy.
You stepped into my life and I'm, oh, so happy.
You stepped into my life,
stepped into my life,
stepped into my life
and I'm, oh, so happy.
You stepped into my life and I'm, oh, so.

Before you came my way
I always checked this out,
so much pain in love
and so alone inside.
I never thought that I'd
believe in love so much,
but, darling, when you came close to me,
suddenly, suddenly.

You stepped into my life and I'm, oh, so happy.
You stepped into my life and I'm, oh, so happy.
You stepped into my life,
stepped into my life,
stepped into my life.
You stepped into my life and I'm, oh, so happy.
You stepped into my life and I'm, oh, so.

You will never know
What you have done, my love.
You gave me so much more
Than my love is worthy of.
Beneath my very soul
I kneel before your touch.
Your touch is ecstasy,
close to me,
suddenly, suddenly.

You stepped (you stepped) into my life and I'm, oh, so happy.
You stepped (you stepped) into my life and I'm, oh, so happy.
You stepped into my life,
stepped into my life,
stepped into my life...
 
 
LOVE SO RIGHT

She came on like the night
and she held on tight
and the world was right when she made love to me,
we were free.

She moved in like a friend, started loving me,
and I thought I'd found my heaven in her arms,
but the morning when I woke up
I was here and she was gone,
now I'm hanging on,
maybe you can tell me...

how a love so right (uh)
can turn out to be so wrong,
oh my darling (oh my darling).
Aaah, how a love so right
can turn out to be so wrong.

Where the hell did she go when I need her close to me,
and the perfect story ended at the start.
I thought you came forever
and you came to break my heart.
Now I'm hanging on,
on the chance that you'll come back to me.

How a love so right
can turn out to be so wrong (so wrong)
oh my darling (oh my darling)
Aaah, how a love so right (a love so)
can turn out to be so wrong (so wrong)
oh my darling.

Ah, I could take it in my stride,
start living for the moment,
maybe half the things we sought
were never there,
simply open up our eyes
and break it down to size,
at isn't really fair.

How a love so right (oh)
can turn out to be so wrong (so wrong),
oh my darling.
Aaah, how a love so right (love so right)
can turn out to be so wrong (so wrong)
oh my darling
...

CAN'T KEEP A GOOD MAN DOWN

No, you can't keep a good man down,
when you got a good woman to keep it up.
No, you can't stand on firmer ground,
when love is the question I got enough.

Ooh, with lips so sweet
Our love just can't be beat, my darling, oh yeah.
A love like yours and mine
can stand the test of time, my darling, oh yeah.

But for tomorrow,
tomorrow never comes,
Love is the secret,
goes living on.

No, you can't keep a good man down
when you got a good woman to keep it up.
No, you can't stand on firmer ground
when love is the question I got enough.

Just when I need you,
show me the way.
You came into my world,
turned my night to day.
What good is a man without a woman?

But for the trouble,
trouble always comes.
Love is the secret,
goes living on.

No, you can't keep a good man down
When you got a good woman to keep it up.
No, you can't stand on firmer ground
When love is the question I got enough.

Ooh, your love is strong,
keep me forever young, my darling, oh yeah.
A love like yours and mine
can stand the test of time, my darling, oh yeah.

But for tomorrow,
tomorrow never comes.
Love is the secret,
goes living on.

No, you can't keep a good man down
when you got a good woman to keep it up.
No, you can't stand on firmer ground
when love is the question I've got enough.

LOVE ME

I remember times, my love, when we really had it all,
you were always there to make me smile, help me when I fall.
Ooh, I can't believe you're leaving me
when there's so much more to say,
I can't let you go,
ooh, every time I look at you
I still can feel the glow,
let it be, let it grow.

Ooh love me,
please, just a little bit longer,
together we can make it,
our love is much too young to break it.
Love me, please, just a little bit harder.

All I ever wanted was to have you to myself,
then I see you standing there in the arms of someone else.
You know a man can’t stand so much
and it's more then I can bear.
I can't let you go.
Ooh, every time I look at you I still can feel the glow,
let it be, let it grow.

Ooh love me,
please, just a little bit longer,
together we can make it,
our love is much too young to break it.
Love me,
please, just a little bit harder.

Never even try
to see things her way.
It's hard on a woman
when love ain't no love at all.

And when she walks away (no no)
and she probably will,
you're gonna be sorry,
begging her please.

Love me,
please, just a little bit longer,
together we can make it,
our love is much too young to break it.
Love me,
please, just a little bit harder.

I think I can work it out,
I can't get enough,
I want you tomorrow.

Love me,
please, just a little bit longer,
together we can make it,
our love is much too young to break it.
Love me,
please, just a little bit longer.
together we can make it,
our love is much too young to break it.

SUBWAY

Take me to the subway,
ooh, take me to the subway.

It ain't far away,
but the night is mine, like it fine, gonna stay,
see you in the morning,
gotta rush,
get a bus, make a fuss,
gimme some loving in the morning.

Ooh, she makes me feel so good,
instant reaction and ready for love.
I got no work, no sweat, no strain,
I got to make it to the midnight train,
so take me to the subway.
Ah
Ooh take me to the subway.

Ooh, city life is bittersweet,
I don't care, take me there on the street,
freedom in the city.
Gotta ride,
going down underground, watch me slide,
loving in the city.

Ooh, she makes me so complete,
heavy in love and light on my feet, I got
no work, no sweat, no strain,
I got to make it to the midnight train,
so take me to the subway.
Ah
Ooh take me to the subway.
Ah

 
THE WAY IT WAS

I don't know how,
but nights get lonely now,
they keep appearing in my eyes,
such a warm and tender glow,
for just one moment
I remember all.

The love we had was never all that bad,
there were smiles and there were tears,
on that special starry night,
with your arms around me,
held on tight.

Wasn't that the way it was,
two strangers reaching for
a worthless cause?
Wasn't that the love we shared
or just the restless years
when no-one cared?

I don't know why
it's hard to say goodbye
or even justify the end.
You meant so very much to me,
then to let you go,
start my life again.

The love we had was never all that bad,
there were smiles and there were tears,
till that special summer day
when I reached out for you,
you just walked away.

Wasn't that the way it was,
two strangers reaching for
a worthless cause?
Wasn't that the love we shared
or just the restless years
when no-one cared?
Ah

 
CHILDREN OF THE WORLD

Ah ah ah ah
We are children of the world ,
watching every day go by.
Changes my life, changes your life,
keeps us all anticipating.

Ah ah ah ah
We are searchers of the truth,
every man's a boy deep down.
Gotta say it how you mean it,
there ain't no easy way.

Like a bird in the wind,
like a tree in the storm,
like the breath of a child
from the moment he's born
to the very last day
when the curtains are drawn.

Ah ah ah ah
We are children of the world
asking every question why,
from arrival to survival
just to make it worth the waiting.

Ah ah ah ah
We are faces in the night
watching every day go by.
Changes my life, changes your life,
there ain't no easy way.

In the back of your mind
there is always a mark.
There's a wandering solo
alone in the dark.
You can keep it forever
or tear it apart.

Ah ah ah ah
We are children of the world
watching every day go by.
Changing my life, changing your life,
keeps us all anticipating.

Ah ah ah ah
We are children of the world
watching every day go by.

Like a bird in the wind,
like a tree in the storm,
like the breath of a child
from the moment he's born
till the very last day
when the curtains are drawn.

Ah ah ah ah
We are children of the world
watching every day go by.
Changes my life, changes your life,
keeps us all anticipating.

Ah ah ah ah
We are children of the world
watching every day go by.
Changes my life, changes your life,
keeps us all anticipating.
