Live For The One I Love


If I Was A River

If I was the sun I would shine my light
To light your world
And if I was the rain I would wash your tears away
I'd keep your world right, be your light in the night
If I was the sky I would rain down love into your life

If I was a river
You would be my ocean
Every stream would lead me to your arms
And if, if I was a river
Floating you forever
Love would run forever in this heart of mine
If I, if I was a river

If I was the wind I would carry you
Above the clouds
And if I was the earth I would be your solid ground
If I could, I'd be
All you ever would need

I would be your world, you're the only world there is for me

If I was a river
You would be my ocean
Every stream would lead me to your arms
And if, if I was a river
Floating you forever
Love would run forever in this heart of mine
If I, if I was a river

I would run into your arms, into your arms
I'd run to you baby
I'll be yours

If I was a river
You would be my ocean
Every stream would lead me to your arms
And if, if I was a river
Floating you forever
(Would you float in me baby?)
Love would run forever in this heart of mine

If I was a river
You would be my ocean
Every stream would lead me to your arms
It would lead me there

[Repeat to fade]



Whistle Down The Wind

Whistle down the wind
Let your voices carry
Drown out all the rain, light a patch of darkness
Treacherous and scary

Howl at the stars
Whisper when you're sleeping
I'll be there to hold you, I'll be there to stop
The chills and all the weeping

Make it clear and strong
So the whole night long
Every signal that you send until the very end
I will not abandon you, my precious friend

So try and stem the tide
Then you'll raise a banner
Send a flare up in the sky
Try to burn a torch
And try to build a bonfire
Every signal that you send until the very end
I'm there

So whistle down the wind
For I have always been
Right there

Howl at the stars
Whisper when you're sleeping
I'll be there to hold you, I'll be there to stop
The chills and all the weeping

Make it clear and strong
So the whole night long
Every signal that you send until the very end
I will not abandon you, my precious friend

Try and stem the tide
Then you'll raise a banner
Send a flare up in the sky
Try to burn a torch
And try to build a bonfire
Every signal that you send until the very end
I'm there

So whistle down the wind
For I have always been
Right there



Not For Sale

Here we are, face to face
Who would've ever believed we could end up in this place?
You and I, we've come so far

And darlin', though you're amazed
That I keep on loving you more everyday
There's something I want you to know

Even if all my dreams should come true
Or even if I should fail
I made you a promise, so don't you worry
This soul is not for sale
Not for sale

You're the one when it rains
Who I can run to for cover and comfort from my pain
And bloom like the rose in your sun

And we hold on to what is real
Not willing to sacrifice this love that we feel
'Cause we know where our joy comes from

Even if all my dreams should come true
Or even if I should fail
I made you a promise, so don't you worry
This soul is not for sale
Not for sale

[Repeat]

Baby it's not for sale



No Shame

Took me twenty years to stand up straight and tall
Took all of twenty seconds for everything to fall
I don't worry about my pride anymore
Pride is something I just can't afford

I'd go begging in the rain if I could spare you any pain
When it comes to you, I have no shame

No shame
No shame

There's no life by your side I wouldn't live
There's no sin you could commit that I would not forgive
I don't try to understand anymore
As I just know my world begins at your door

If I could keep you from the cold, if I could make your tears my own
I'd do anything, I have no shame

No shame
For the first time in my life
No shame
To get it right for you, I wouldn't think twice
No shame
Nothing I won't sacrifice
There's nothing I won't do, baby
To get you through the night

Falling, oh, falling
I'll be there to reach you, baby
To catch you when you're crying
I'll be calling, hear me calling
With a love for you that has no name
I've no shame

I'd go begging in the rain if I could spare you any pain
When it comes to you, I have no shame

No shame
For the first time in my life
No shame
To get it right for you, I wouldn't think twice
No shame
There's nothing I won't sacrifice
There's nothing I won't do, baby
To get you through the night

[Repeat to fade]



I Want To Spend My Lifetime Loving You

Moon so bright, night so fine
Keep your heart here with mine
Life's a dream, we are dreaming

Race the moon, catch the wind
Ride the night to the end
Seize the day, stand up for the light

I want to spend my lifetime loving you
If that is all in life I ever do

Heroes rise, heroes fall
Rise again, with it all
In your heart, can't you feel the glory?

Through our joy, through our pain
We can move worlds again
Take my hand, dance with me
Dance with me

I want to spend my lifetime loving you
If that is all in life I ever do
I will want nothing else to see me through
If I can spend my lifetime loving you

Though we know we will never come again
Where there is love, life begins
Over and over again

Save the night, save the day
Save the love, come what may
Love is worth everything we pay

I want to spend my lifetime loving you
If that is all in life I ever do
I want to spend my lifetime loving you
If that is all in life I ever do
I will want nothing else to see me through
If I can spend my lifetime loving you
Loving you



Welcome To My World

Come inside
And sit yourself down beside me
Help me find
A way to heal what divides me

Please take my shield that hides my heart
Pull the curtains far apart

Welcome to my world
I've waited oh so long
For you to share my crazy life
Welcome to my
Welcome to my world
My world

Come prepared
Expect to see the unexpected
'Cause I'm not scared
No, I'm not
Can't you see we're connected?

Don't you know the road you're on
Only leads where you belong

Welcome to my world
I've waited oh so long
For you to share my crazy life
Welcome to my
Welcome to my world
My world

Some days there's a river of raging pain
Some days there's a lover to drive you insane
But what you give me I don't really mind
All I ask is please be kind

Welcome to my world
I've waited oh so long
For you to share my crazy life
Welcome to my
Welcome to my
Welcome to my world
This is my world
My world
This will be the rest of my life
'Cause I know...my world
Waited oh so long
Welcome to my world
This is the rest of my life
Welcome to my world



Any Other Love

Window with a view, sea breeze is blowing
Maybe together we can fight any war
As long as you're the army, then I'll be your soldier
Tell me when to cover when they come crashing through the door

Champagne and roses sit around just collecting the dust
There is Jesus, hanging on the wall
But will he hear my call?

Any other love
Wouldn't have the touch
Any other love
Would never be enough
I've got reasons in my head
So I'll give and get what I get
'Cause any other love
Wouldn't be quite the same

So now I know it's true, the coming and going
And maybe that's better than what we had before
I've got someone to charm me, someone to hold me
And help me discover what I've been searching for

Champagne and roses sit around just collecting the dust
There is Jesus, hanging on the wall
But will he hear my call?

Any other love
Wouldn't have the touch
Any other love
Would never be enough
I've got reasons in my head
So I'll give and get what I get
'Cause any other love
Wouldn't be quite the same

Yeah, I thought I was dead
I was drowning in sorrow
No-one to turn to, I was going round in my head
Yeah, you came through out of nowhere
And you helped me believe in tomorrow
Any other love can wait
Any other love

I've got reasons in my head
So I'll give and get what I get
'Cause any other love
Wouldn't be, wouldn't be quite the same

Any other love
I've got reasons in my head
Any other love
I've got reasons in my head
I've got reasons in my head
Any other love



Stay

As the days go by without number
One by one
As the clouds divide I sit and wonder
When our time will come

From the Northern lights
To the Southern Cross
Between the earth and the Milky Way
I must chart my course
As I go back and forth
And I wonder if it ever will change

Someday
Maybe not so far away
One day
I'll be in your arms to stay

You don't know what I'd give
You don't know how it is
You don't know what I'd give
So stay

Another day, another night is over
What have we to show?
Another mile, hello, goodbye
There's a million more to go

To overcome my fear
When I'm way up here
I close my eyes and silently pray
And it's too sad a fate
For me to contemplate
All this precious time slipping away

Someday
Maybe not so far away
One day
I'll be in your arms to stay

You don't know what I'd give
You don't know how it is
You don't know what I'd give
You don't know - so stay

You don't know what I'd give
You don't know how it is
You don't know what I'd give
You don't know what it's like to stay

Stay
Maybe not so far away
I will be in your arms

[Repeat to fade]



Show Me Heaven

There you go
Flashing fever from your eyes
Hey baby, come over here
And shut them tight
I'm not denying
We're flying above it all
Hold my hand, don't let me fall
You've such amazing grace
I've never felt this way

Oh, show me heaven
Cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh, show me heaven, please

Here I go
I'm shaking just like the breeze
Hey baby, I need your hand
To steady me
I'm not denying
I'm frightened as much as you
Though I'm barely touching you
I've shivers down my spine
Oh, and it feels divine

Oh, show me heaven
Cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh, show me heaven, please

If you know what it's like
To dream a dream
Baby hold me tight and let this be

Yeah
Show me heaven
Cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh, show me heaven, if you please
Steady me

Show me heaven
Show me heaven
Cover me
Leave me breathless
Oh, show me heaven, if you please

[Repeat to fade]



Live For The One I Love

A million stars light this beautiful night
This is not a night to die
Let me sing and dance beneath the sky
I have such love to give, to give
I want a chance to live

Live, for the one I love
Love, as no-one has loved
Give, asking nothing in return
Free, free to find my way
Free to have my say
Free to see the day
Be like I used to be
Like a wild bird free
With all of life in me

Live, for the one I love
Love, as no-one has loved
Give, asking nothing in return

Though this world tears us apart,
We're still together in my heart
I want the world to hear my cry
And even if I have to die
Love will not die
Love will change the world

Live, for the one I love
Love, as no-one has loved
Give, asking nothing in return

Our love, until love wears me away
I'll die and I know my love will stay

And I know my love will stay
