THIS WOMAN

Well, she walks like you in so many ways.
It's a different look.
It's a different time of day.
One look in her eyes.
How can I make you understand
She's the one good thing that's happened in so many years?

There's been so many tears
when we lost the dream
and the winter came
and you said goodbye.
And I don't want another reason to cry.

You be all you wanna be.
You got the longest night.
Baby, be alone.
I share my dream with someone else.
I don't wanna talk about her.

This woman - she's tearing my world apart.
This woman - don't know what she's doing.
This woman - touchs me and I lose control.
She's living inside my soul.

This woman - I don't even know her name.
This woman - don't know what she's doing.
This woman goes through me like a hurricane.
Falling in love again.

To make those long legs mine
is all I care about.
She's got so much to give
I got to be the one.

I got to have
someone to hold.
I got to make it with that woman.

When the nights get hot.
And she goes walking by.
And the city lights,
and the city lights,
yhey make you blind.

I go insane.
But am I crazy if she feels the same.
You believe what you believe.
You got the darkest night.

Baby, be alone
I take my love to someone else.
She was made to measure for me.

You be all you wanna be.
You got the longest night.
Baby, be alone
I share my dream with someone else.
I don't wanna talk about her.

This woman - she's tearing my world apart.
This woman - don't know what she's doing.
This woman - touchs me and I lose control.
She's living inside my soul.

This woman - I don't even know her name.
This woman - don't know what she's doing.
This woman goes through me like a hurricane.
Falling in love again.


YOU AND I

All the man I am,
you are the reason for me,
you help me understand
I'll be your shelter from the rain that never ends.
Girl, you've always got a friend in me.

All the love we had.
I should've know our love was older than the past.
Throwing my life away on songs I never heard.
Just the speaking of a single word.
I made you die inside but you loved me.

And don't believe the world.
No, the world can't give us paradise.
When you make your love to me.
Till I just could not see the light.
As long as I got you.
As long as you got me.
As long as we got you and I.

I won't let you down.
No better love will be there when you turn around.
I'll be living for you till the ocean turns to sand.
There will never be any man
could love you just the way that I love you.

So don't believe the world.
No, the world can't give up paradise.
In the eye within the storm.
Just when I could not make it through the night.
As long as I got you.
As long as you got me.
As long as we got you and I.


BURIED TREASURE

Now if the aim in your life is to settle me down,
I couldn't change my point of view.
I got a lady in red at the back of my head,
but the woman in white is you.

Do you wanna be the only one
fade away in the morning sun
I could love you all of my life.
You are my wife.
Haven't I let you know?

We don't need no buried treasure.
No buried treasure,  we don't need it.
We don't stand on ceremony.
I love you only, I'm proud of it.

You can never be all you wanna be.
When you're living for gold.
We don't need no buried treasure.
I still got you.
I still go you in my soul.

Well it's a long way down and you gotta get up.
You got to figure on a master plan.
You couldn't do it if you don't get ready.
When you're beaten by the other man.

Do you wanna be the last one in
play the game that you just don't win?
I can see me making you cry
saying goodbye
but I could never let you go.

We don't need no buried treasure.
No buried treasure, we don't need it.
We don't stand on ceremony
I love you only, I'm proud of it.

You can never be all you wanna be.
When you're living for gold.
We don't need no buried treasure.
I still got you.
I still got you in my soul.

Well, you're taking my life in the palm of your hand.
Make you mine for another day.
Ain't nobody doesn't need anybody
when the good times turn away.

I don't wanna be the lonely one.
Fade away in the evening sun.
I could love you all of my life.
You are my wife.
Haven't I told you so?

We don't need no buried treasure.
No, buried treasure, we don't need it.
We don't stand on ceremony.
I love you only, I'm proud of it.

You can never be all you wanna be
when you're living for gold.
We don't need no buried treasure.
I still got you.
I still got you in my soul.


ISLANDS IN THE STREAM

Baby when I met you there was peace unknown.
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb.
I was soft inside.
There was something going on.

You do something to me that I can't explain.
Hold me closer and I feel no pain.
Every beat of my heart.
We got something going on.

Tender love is blind.
It requires a dedication.
All this love we feel needs no conversation.

We can ride it together, ah ha.
Making love with each other, ah ha.

Islands in the stream,
That is what we are.
No one in between.
How can we be wrong?
Sail away with me
to another world.
And we rely on each other, ah ha.
From one lover to another, ah ha.

I can't live without you if the love was gone.
Everything is nothing when you got no one.
And you walk in the night,
slowly losing sight of the real thing.

But that won't happen to us and we got no doubt.
Too deep in love and we got no way out.
And the message is clea.r
This could be the year for the real thing.

No more will you cry.
Baby, I will hurt you never.
We start and end as one.
In love forever.

We can ride it together, ah ha.
Making love with each other, ah ha.

Islands in the stream,
that is what we are.
No one in between
How can we be wrong?
Sail away with me
to another world.
And we rely on each other, ah ha.
From one lover to another, ah ha.


LIVING WITH YOU

You been teaching me a lesson that I never learnt.
You never make it through a lifetime without being burnt.
Everything I ever thought you were you turned out to be
since you gave your love to me.

When I met you on a Monday
my life has stood still.
I belong to every moment that your love can fill.
Let me be the only heart you mend,
turn out the light and take it right to the end.

Living with you,
in the madness of my mind,
in a world I could not find,
but you knew what to do.

Living with you,
there's a full moon on the rise,
there's a fire in your eyes
and I was born to be...

Loving you under my skin.
You're everything to me.
I could not love you more.
And you know that you are mine.
And that's what I'm living for.

There will never be a question of somebody new.
I could make it through a lifetime with someone like you.
Let me be the only heart you mend,
turn out the light and take it right to the end.

Living with you,
in the madness of my mind,
in a world I could not find
but you knew what to do.

Living with you,
there's a full moon on the rise,
there's a fire in your eyes
and I was born to be living with you.


EVENING STAR

If you never rode west of the Arizona border,
you can turn the other way boy, but you'll never get far.
You be living a lie.
If you wanna see the wonders of the age you must follow the evening star.

evening star,
shine a little heaven on the stranger with no dream.
Where you are you can see the loneliness I mean.
And if I gotta fight, I will never play somebody's else's game.
I can follow the evening star.
Starlight, you never need somebody else's name
if you follow the evening star.

Have you ever known a sunset when the sky's on fire?
How you end another day, boy?
You been seaching to far.
Like the desert I rode on any memory is lost in the restless wind.
I just lie beneath the evening star.

Evening star,
shine a little heaven on a stranger with no dream.
Where you are you can see the loneliness I mean.
And if I gotta fight I will never play somebody's else's game.
I can follow the evening star.
Starlight, you never need somebody's elses name
if you follow the evening star.

Have you ever held a woman in the California moonlight?
Put your money on a good night.
If you never been there it's a sight for sore eyes.
If you wanna see the wonders of the age.
Making love beneath the evening star.

Evening star,
shine a little heaven on a stranger with no dream.
Where you are you can see the loneliness I mean.
And if I gotta fight I will never play somebody else's game.
I can follow the evening star.
Starlight, you never need somebody else's name
if you follow the evening star.


HOLD ME, HOLD ME

If my heart's not too late for a piece of your time.
There's been so many days since your eyes looked at mine.
In the dark of this room where the burning has grown.
You believe in your love when you're lost and alone.
And life don't give no reasons when the love goes away.
No answers for someone like you.

Hold me hold me.
Seems like we never get together anymore.
Hold me hold me.
Starry nights don't come enough.
That's what we came here for.
Hold me.

I will lay by your side.
I can warm your cold nights.
You can play in my dreams till I'm out of your sight.
In the morning my love couldn't change where you go.

You were always my woman.
It's the one truth I know.
So hold out when there's no chance for your love anyway.
No diamond could shine close to you.

Hold me hold me.
Seems like we never get together anymore.
Hold me hold me.
Starry nights don't come enough.
That's what we came here for.
Hold me.


MIDSUMMER NIGHTS

Rain comes down on a misty day.
Light on the water and she's coming my way.
To be fair she's only wearing a smile.
Ease all my trouble just by driving me wild.

And like the moon don't function without the night.
We come together and she's hanging on tight.
She makes me tremble like I never before.
Bringing me up to keep me begging for more.

In every hour to be, let me satisfy your heart.
I can take the days in return for the midsummer nights.

We know the journey to a better life, better life.
And we never to be letting go.
You got to learn to be lonely to find what you're living for.

Making love on a midsummer night.
I love those midsummer nights.

You seen the bad times without a doubt.
I know you need me but you couldn't get out.
You build your heaven. It'll never be home.
In a place without love, how could you ever have known
There may be one fool falling in love with you.

You are the vision that I'm hanging on to.
Any world, any dream you can see
can be yours and mine if we want it to be.
Let me lie in your arms.
Let me understand your love.
I can take the lonely days in return for the midsummer nights.

We know the journey to a better life, better life.
And we never to be letting go.
You got to learn to be lonely to find what you're living for.

Making love on a midsummer night.
I love those midsummer nights.

Making love to me only.
Running forever.
I following you .
And I'm not afraid
for every hour to be.
Let me satisfy your heart
in return for those midsummer nights.


I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

I saw you tonight
in the room where love had started once before.
And we opened up the skies.
With your loving eyes
you take me back where you belong in my heart.

One love frozen in time.
Never be a bad love.
Yours and mine.
But I still remain.
I will never change.

I will always love you.
I will always take your part.
And all the years of losing you.
And then being close to you again.
The very chance that I could take your heart.

Your hand in mine.
You are inside of me.
One more time.
Don't you remember me.
And the days that lie ahead
mMay all go wrong.

But tonight, my love,
there's no question in my mind where we should be.
It's clear that you're alone and I'm alone.
And all the fools have gone.
You open up so tears can fall from your eyes.

True love can never die.
We can make it one day, if we try.
Be there, sunshine or rain.
I will never change.

I will always love you.
I will always take your part.
And all the years of losing you and then
making love to you again.
The very chance that I could take your heart.

Your hand in mine.
I got a memory
for all time.
Don't you remember me.
Now my dream will come true
if you love me.

I will always love you.
I will always take your part.
And all the years of losing you and then
making love to you again.
The very chance that I could take your heart.
Your hand in mine.


EYES THAT SEE IN THE DARK

You're not meant to be alone.
I'll share your dream.
I'll show you love you've never known.
Two flames together in the deep of the night.
I'm up in your love.

Close by you when you call.
I'll take my stand.
One chance to make or lost it all.
This time my journey to wherever you are.
I sail on your river so far my love we'll never be found.
If you believe.

We got eyes that see in the dark.
And the power of love lives for making you mine.
And in the light of close investigation.
Is it only my imagination
I got you.

Moonlight shining on your face.
My bridges burnt.
With all my tears that you replaced.
Two hearts together is a beautiful sight.
I'll take you to heaven so far my love will follow you there.
If we believe.

We got eyes that see in the dark.
And the power of love lives for making you mine.
Am I the light of someone you need more of.
Let me be that love you can be sure of.
Is it only my imagination
I got you.

Like the eagle that flies in the sun.
I'll be lost in your fire before we are done.
And the view from my window is brighter.
Born to be all you need.

We got eyes that see in the dark.
And the power of love lives for making you mine.
Am I the light of someone you need more of.
Let me be that love you can be sure of.
Is it only my imagination
I got you.
