“Look Inside Yourself” Lyrics

Has the night lost its attraction
In the cold light of day?
Has it bored you to distraction?
Is it leading you astray?

Tell me, what do you see when you look inside yourself?
Are you trying too hard to pretend you’re something else?
Tell me, what do you see when you look inside yourself?

Does your heart seek true affection?
Is it always on your mind?
Does it border on obsession?
Or do you feel you’re wasting time?

Tell me, what do you see when you look inside yourself?
Are you trying too hard to pretend you’re something else?
Tell me, what do you see when you look inside yourself?

Take another look, take another look
Take another look, take another look
Won’t you take another look, take another look
Take another look, take another look

Tell me, what do you see when you look inside yourself?
Are you trying too hard to pretend you’re something else?
Tell me, what do you see when you look inside yourself? (Take another look, take another look)
Are you trying too hard to pretend you’re something else? (Take another look, take another look)
Tell me, what do you see when you look inside yourself? (Won’t you take another look, take another look)

“Make the Woman Love Me” Lyrics

Lord, I know, I haven’t asked for much
In such a long, long time
Not since that brand new pair of Levis
Back when I was eight or nine

And I know the world’s in such a state
And you have a lot to do
But if you ever find yourself
With a minute or two

Won’t you make the woman love me? (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
Please, make my baby see (Make my baby see)
I’d be so good for her
If she’d just let me be

And Lord, I know that she needs me
It’s just that she don’t know
And my heart’s so full of her
It’s about to overflow (Oh, oh, oh, oh)

And so, if you should have a miracle (Miracle)
That you want to turn out right (Turn out right)
Won’t you take her by the hand
And show her the light? (Show her, show her)
Please, show her the light (Show her, show the light)

And won’t you, won’t you make the woman love me? (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
Make my baby see (Make my baby see)
I’d be so good for her
If she’d just let me be

[break]

(Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh)

So if you should have a miracle (Miracle)
That you want to turn out right (Turn out right)
Won’t you take her by the hand, Lord, take her by the hand, Lord
And show her the light (Show her, show her)
Won’t you show her the light? (Show her, show the light)

And won’t you make the woman love me? (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
Please, make my baby care (Make my baby care)
Just open up her heart, Lord
And I’ll take it from there

Make the woman love me (Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh)
Please, make my baby care (Oh-oh, oh-oh, make my baby care)
Just open up her heart, Lord
And I’ll take it from there
And I’ll take it from there

“You’re Only Dreaming” Lyrics

(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)

The girl from Pay {???} Street says she’s got my number
I’m top of the pops, and she’s bubbling under
She wraps me in limbs like a human octopus
Talk about something that’s bigger than both of us

Bells start to ring
I hear the angels calling me
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)

I’m shaking the hand of the one abandoned {???}
Everything’s going the way I planned it
I’ve been here all night, and they call me crackpot
Now, they’re my friends ’cause I hit the jackpot

But bells start to ring
I hear the angels calling me
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)

Oh, well, hey, ho
I go back to work
Just another
Caught in the machine
Pleasant dreams

(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)

I’m tired of the rat race, this competition
Regarding the world, I change my position
I sit on the floor in the lotus posture
It’s better than sex, and it doesn’t cost ya

Bells start to ring
I hear the angels calling me
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming) (Di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming) (Di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming) (Di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming) (Di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do)

“Black and White” Lyrics

Used to be we could talk
Started out, we were lovers
We used to do everything together
More than sister or brother

Now one day while it slowly happened to you
It slowly happened to me
Now, it seems the only thing that we can do
The only way that we can see

It’s clear as black and white, dynamite
Once you lit the fuse, you’d better make a move
Black and white, it’s either up or down
There’s no turning back, girl
No turning around

We tried to talk it out, work it out
Willing to do anything at all (It seems unfair)
But it seems unfair because they said
That this love has to fall

’Cause one day while it slowly happened to you
It slowly happened to me
Now, it seems the only thing that we can do
The only way that we can see

It’s clear as black and white, dynamite
Once you lit the fuse, you’d better make a move
Black and white, it’s either up or down
There’s no turning back, girl
No turning around

(Black… white…)
(Black… white…)

[break]

It’s clear as black and white, dynamite
Once you lit the fuse, you’d better make a move
Black and white, it’s either up or down
There’s no turning back, girl
No turning around

Black and white, dynamite
Once you lit the fuse, you’d better make a move
Black and white, it’s either up or down
There’s no turning back, girl
No turning around

Black and white, dynamite
Once you lit the fuse, you’d better make a move
Black and white, it’s either up or down
There’s no turning back, girl
No turning around

Black and white

Well, there’s a girl I know
She makes me feel so good
And I wouldn’t live without her
Even if I could (Even if I could)

Valleri
I love her
Valleri

Oh yeah
Come on
Wow!

Well, she’s the same little girl who used to
Hang around my door
But she sure looks different than
The way she looked before (Way she looked before)

I love her

“After Your Heart” Lyrics

(I’ll be after your heart
Ah-ah-ah)


Sometimes I’m feeling low
Prayers just bounce off the walls
Over and over, it seems you go
I stumble and I fall

Come and lavish me with your love
It’s what I hold so dear
Let me know what you’re thinking of
Let me know, know you’re near

I’ll be after your heart (Be after your heart)
Girl, I’m after your heart
Though you’re running from me, girl
I’ll make you see, girl
Nothing can keep us apart
Still I know the place to start
Is after your heart

Just like a ship on the sea
That gets tossed about by the storm
Sometimes I just wanna be
In a place that’s safe, safe and warm

Like a stranger upon this land
Seems your path’s hard to see
But with just a touch of your hat
You can move me, move me

I’ll be after your heart (Be after your heart)
Girl, I’m after your heart
Though you’re running away
I gotta say
Nothing can keep us apart
Still I know the place to start
Is after your heart

[break]

I’ll be after your heart (Be after your heart)
Girl, I’m after your heart
You’re so hard to please
There’s not enough reason
I know it’s a shot in the dark
Still I know the place to start
Is after (I’ll be after your heart, I’ll be after your heart) your heart
(I’ll be after your heart)
I’ll be running after you, girl (I’ll be after your heart)
There won’t be no one else (I’ll be after your heart)
I’m coming running after you, babe (I’ll be after your heart)
You know there’s no one else (I’ll be after your heart)
There’s only you (I’ll be after your heart)
I’ll come a-running after you, girl

“Incredible” Lyrics

(You make me feel incredible)

Just when I think
Nothing seems to be going my way
And it’s gonna be one of those days
Suddenly
You come along and make everything okay
And we don’t let anybody stand in our way

Whenever you’re around
You make me feel incredible
My heart begins to pound
And anything is possible
You turn me upside down
And make me feel incredible

Then when I think
That the whole world is ganging up on me
And maybe I’m giving in too easily
Suddenly (Come along)
Lady Luck is smiling down on me
And now, everything is how I want it to be

Whenever you’re around
You make me feel incredible
My heart begins to pound
And anything is possible
You turn me upside down
And make me feel incredible (Incredible, incredible, incredible, incredible)

[break]
(Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah)

Now I know
Everything is going my way
And it’s gonna be one of those days
Suddenly (You come along)
You come along and make everything okay
And we won’t let anybody stand in our way

Whenever you’re around
You make me feel incredible
My heart begins to pound
And anything is possible
You turn me upside down
And make me feel incredible (Incredible)

Whenever you’re around
You make me feel incredible
My feet don’t touch the ground
And anything is possible
You turn me upside down
And make me feel incredible

Whenever you’re around
You make me feel incredible
My heart begins to pound
And anything is possible
You turn me upside down
And make me feel incredible

Whenever you’re around
You make me feel incredible
My heart begins to pound

“I’ll Love You Forever” Lyrics

I’ll love you this year
I’ll love you next year
And then forever

I’ll always need you
I’ll never leave you
I’ll love you forever

And if you ever change your mind
Think again and give me time
For you’re my first love
You are my last love
You’re my forever

I love this feeling
My heart is beating
A mile a minute

No other woman
Has ever been
So deep inside in it

And when the sun shines on our love
I thank the Lord above
You’re my first love
You are my last love
You’re my beginning

[break]

And when the sun shines on our love
That’s when I thank the Lord above
You’re my first love
You are my last love
You are my everlasting love

You are my first love
You’re my last love
You’re my forever

“She Believes” Lyrics

She believes that witches fly
Crazy ’cross the moon
She believes an angel hides
In the corner of her room
She believes that ships come home
Singing from the sea
She believes in all these things
She believes in me

And she believes a pot of gold
Will mark a rainbow’s end
She believes a light will show
A lonesome homeward friend
She believes the weary soul
One day, will be free
She believes in all these things
She believes in me

Blow lightly, wind, so she can fly
Blow lightly, wind, and I will see her by and by
Away with fools who tell her
She is make believe
She believes in all these things
She believes in me

She believes an angel hides
In the corner of her room
She believes that ships come home
Singing from the sea
She believes a light will show
The lonesome homeward friend
She believes in all these things
She believes in me
She believes in me
Yes, she believes in me
She believes in me
Yes, she believes in me

“Don’t Go” Lyrics

Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go and find someone else
Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go

Can’t spend my life
Chasing runaway hearts
Can’t sleep at night
If I don’t know where you are

Sometimes I get so confused
Not this time, I know what to do
Don’t you worry
I’ll put no chains on you

Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go and find someone else
Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go fooling yourself

All day and night
I’ll keep you satisfied
What’s right is right
Forget the tears that you’ve cried

The world is moving so fast
So don’t let a good thing get past
Whatever you do
That’s why I say to you

Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go and find someone else
Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go fooling yourself

[break]

Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go and find someone else
Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go, you’re fooling yourself

Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go and find someone else
Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go fooling yourself

Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go and find someone else
Don’t go, now that I’ve found you
Don’t go fooling yourself

“Manchester Boy (ukelele version)” Lyrics

I’m a Manchester boy
Me mum’s pride and joy
A chip off the old block me dad
I can dance, I can sing, I can do anything
There’s nothin’ too hard if I try

And if the goin’ gets rough, I can brave it
If I set myself straight from the start
You see, I’m a Manchester boy
Me mum’s pride and joy
A chip off the old block me dad

Now when I was fourteen, I decided to leave
Me dad came to wave me goodbye
As I got on the train, it started to rain
And me dad, well, he started to cry

As the train pulled away from the station
I shouted that I’d be home soon
You see, I’m a Manchester boy
Me mum’s pride and joy
A chip off the old block me dad

Well, I’ve traveled the world
And found me a girl
And I come home just once in a while
Relations to meet me
My friends, they all greet me
We laugh, and we talk of old times

Nothing has changed much around here
’Cept me mum and me dad’s passed away
But I’m still that Manchester boy
Me mum’s pride and joy
A chip off the old block me dad
I’m a chip off the old block
A chip off the old block
A chip off the old block, me dad

Hee hee

“Hanging by a Thread” Lyrics

I tried to tell you how I feel, but it came out wrong
It wasn’t what I meant, it was much too strong
But sometimes, baby, I just see red
I just see red

And before I had a chance to apologize
You went off alone, and I realized
Tonight I’m gonna face an empty bed
Hangin’ by a thread

Hangin’ on the hope that you still care
The tiny strand of rope is all we share
I’m gonna take back the things I said
Hangin’ by a thread

I don’t know what’s goin’ on in your mind
But I know I’m in a race against time
And all I see is trouble up ahead
Trouble up ahead

I close my eyes and see a bright razor blade
Cutting through the plan that we made
A picture of a future in my head
Hangin’ by a thread

Hangin’ on the hope that you still care
A tiny strand of rope is all we share
I’m gonna take back the things I said
Hangin’ by a thread

Hangin’ on a hope that you still care
A tiny strand of rope is all we share
I’m gonna take back the things I said
Hangin’ by a thread

[break]

Before it’s all lost to the wind
Hear me out again
I’ve got something on my chest
And it won’t let me rest
Let me rest, let me rest
Let me rest, let me rest

Hangin’ on a hope that you still care
A tiny strand of rope is all we share
I wanna take back the things I said
Hangin’ by a thread

Hangin’ on a hope that you still care
A tiny strand of rope is all we share
I’m gonna take back the things I said
