SOME GOOD THINGS NEVER LAST

SOME GOOD THINGS NEVER LAST
 
It's three in the morning
You're nowhere in sight
And all that I wanted was
To be with you
Tonight
I've watched love get closer
And then fade away
I've seen you believe in me
I've seen you trying to stay
But what good is holding on
When you know
That all you can think about
Is letting go
They say if you love someone
Then set them free
If they come back again
Then in the end
It was meant to be
I thought we were lovers
I thought we were friends
I guess when reality
Steps in
The dreaming ends
We live for the future
We learn from the past
No matter how hard we try
Some good things never last
All you can think about
Is letting go
Be true to yourself my love
That's all I ever wanted you to be
Just don't forget to smile
When you think of me
I'll reach for the stars
I have got them in sight
There's someone who really needs me
Out there in the night
We'll live for the future
We'll learn form the past
No matter how hard we try
Some good things never last
Why can't they last?
 

Lullaby for Myself

Self-contained and self-content
No promises to keep
I've got things so together
That I just can't fall asleep
 
Walked the night and drank the moon
Got home at half past four
And I knew that no one marked my time
As I unlocked my door
 
It's really lovely to discover
That you like to be alone
Not to owe your man an answer
When he gets you on the phone
 
Not to share a pair of pork chops
When you crave champagne and cheese
And your aim becomes to please yourself
And not to aim to please
 
Oh, they sold me when they told me
Two can live as cheap as one
But I'm learning twice your earning
Doesn't mean it's twice the fun
 
If you spend each dime and all your time
On someone else's schemes
I'm not needy, but I'm greedy
And I live my deepest dreams
 
Take an hour in the shower
Use the water while it's hot in the tub
A hand to scrub my back
Is all I haven't got
 
Self-aware with self-esteem
Is selfishness a crime?
I take the day for quite a ride
And I take my own sweet time
 
Time to spare and time to share
And grateful I would be
If just one damn man
Would share the need
To be alone with me
 

My Heart Belongs to Me

I got the feeling' the feelin's gone
My heart has gone to sleep
One of these mornin's I'll be gone
My heart belongs to me
 
Can we believe in fairytales?
Can love survive when all else fails?
Can't hide the feelin' the feelin's gone
My heart belongs to me
 
But now, my love, hey, didn't I love you
But we knew what had to be
Somehow, my love, I'll always love you
But my heart belongs to me
 
Put out the light and close your eyes
Come lie beside me
Don't ask why
 
Can't hide the feelin' the feelin's gone
My heart belongs to me
 
But now, my love, hey, didn't I love you
Didn't I love you
Didn't I love you
Didn't I love you, baby
 
Don't cry, my love
I'll always love you
But my heart belongs to me
My heart belongs to me
 
I got the feelin' the feelin's gone
My heart belongs to me
 
Didn't I love you, didn't I love you
 

Superman

Baby, I can fly like a bird
When you touch me with your eyes
Flying through the sky
I've never felt the same
But I am not a bird
And I am not a plane
 
I am superman
When you love me, it's easy
I can do almost anything
Watch me turn around
One wing up and one wing down
I never thought I would
Fall in love for good
 
I'm superman
When you love me, it's easy
My sweet life has just begun
I'm in love this time and I know I have it
Fell into my life, so I grabbed it
There's nothing I can do
When I'm with you
I'm superman
 
I'm superman
'Cause I'm with you, it's easy
My sweet life has just begun
I'm in love this time and I know I have it
Fell into my life, so I grabbed it
There's nothing I can do
'Cause I'm with you
I'm superman
 

You and I

Here we are
On Earth together
It's you and I
God has made us fall in love
It's true
I've really found someone like you
 
Will it stay
The love you feel for me?
Will it say
That you will be by my side
To see me through
Until my life is through?
 
Within my mind
We can conquer the world
In love you and I
You and I
You and I
 
I'm glad
At least in my life
I've found someone
That may not be here forever
To see me through
But I found strength in you
 
I only pray
That I have shown you a brighter day
Because that's all that I am living for
You see
 
Don't worry what happens to me
'Cause in my mind
You will stay here always
In love you and I
You and I
You and I
You and I
 
In my mind
We can conquer the world
In love you and I
You and I
You and I
You and I
 

By the Way

By the way
Did I hear you say
If some night I seem too lonely
You would stay?
Oh, and by the way
Have I told you yet that only recently
He moved out on me
Took the towels we stole from some motel in Tennessee?
He was gone long before he really left, I knew it
 
By the way
He began to say
'Love takes time, I'm in a hurry'
Anyway
That's all yesterday
Let's get back to us, why worry?
If you try
Calling by and by
Oh, and by the way
I thought I mentioned you can stay
 
Leave the lights
You don't look a thing like he did and
It's time to play
It's another day
Why can't we make love
Fall by the way?
 

The Rain Will Fall

You can tell one lie a thousand times
But that doesn't make it real
It's a thundercloud of alibis
That empty words cannot conceal
 
When up is down and wrong is right
In everything you do and say
The truth becomes a shelter when
The storm is on its way
Yes the storm is on its way
 
The rain is falling
As cold and dark as stone
The rain is falling
It chills us to the bone
 
The signs are all around us
The writings on the wall
But today the sky grows darker
And the rain will fall
 
We can build a wall to Heaven's gate
Make tomorrow yesterday
But our tears of rage will break it down
The storm is on its way
 
The rain is falling
As cold and dark as stone
The rain is falling
It chills us to the bone
 
Tomorrow we may wake up
And pray we dreamed it all
But today the sky grows darker
And the rain will fall
 
Facts are fake and friends are foes
And how the story ends nobody knows
Cruel is kind and lost is found
And the truth goes round and round and round and round
 
The rain is falling
As cold and dark as stone
The rain is falling
It chills us to the bone
 
One day we may be lifted
High up above it all
But today the sky grows darker
And the rain will fall
Yes the rain will fall
It's coming down, down, down
The rain will fall
The rain will fall
Yes the rain will fall
 

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf
The big bad wolf, the big bad wolf?
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?
Tra la la la la
 
Long ago there were three pigs
Little, handsome wigs
For the big, bad the very big, very bad wolf
They did not give three figs
 
Number one was very gay
And he built his house with hay
With a 'hey hey toot' he blew on his flute
And he played around all day
 
Now number two was fond of jigs
And so he built his house with twigs
Hey, 'diddle diddle' he played on his fiddle
And danced with lady pigs
 
Number three said, 'Nix on tricks'
'I shall build my house with bricks'
He had no chance to sing or dance
'Cause work and play don't mix
 
Ha, ha, ha, the two little do little pigs
Just winked and laughed 'ah, woo'
 
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf
The big bad wolf, the big bad wolf?
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?
Tra la la la la
 
Came the day when fate did frown
And a wolf blew into town
With a 'gruff huff puff', he puffed just enough
And the hay house fell right down
 
One and two were scared to death
Of the big bad wolf's breath
By the hair of your chinny chin I'll blow you in
And the twig house answered 'yes'
 
No one left but number three
To save that piglet family
So when they knocked, he fast unlocked
And said: 'Come in with me'
 
Now they all were safe inside
But the bricks hurt wolf's pride
So, he slid down the chimney and oh, by Jiminey
In a fire he was fried
 
Oh, oh, oh, the three little free little pigs
Just winked and laughed 'ah, woo'
 
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf
The big bad wolf, the big bad wolf?
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?
Tra la la la la
 
Tra la la, tra la la
Tra la la la la la la la la la la
Who's afraid of the big, big, big
Bad wolf?
 

Cry Me a River

Now you say you're lonely
You cried the long night through
Cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
 
Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
 
You drove me,
Nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember?
I remember all that you said
Told me love was to plebeian
Told me you were through with me
 
Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
 
You drove me
Nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember?
I remember all that you said
Told me love was to plebeian
Told me you were through with me
 
And now you say that you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on! Come on!
Cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
 

Autumn leaves

Et le vent du nord les emporte
dans la nuit froide de l'oublie
tu vois je n'ai pas oublié
la chanson que tu me chantais.
 
The falling leaves
Drift by the window
The autumn leaves
Of red and gold,
 
I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold,
 
Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I'll hear
Old winter's song,
 
But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall
