Goodbye Heartbreak

Don’t be blind
In all the fated life
Something great is happening in your life
But all the noise
Is drowning out your voice
No wonder you’ve been feeling down
From time to time
You know that you’ll survive
The day you realise
You can’t stop day from turning into night

Hey, you know you’re gonna live
To find another day,
It’s just today things ain’t so good.
Get yourself back again,
You’ve got so much love
That you can’t afford to lose

Goodbye Heartbreak
Don’t look for me
‘Cause I don’t need you now
So long heartache
Don’t look for me
‘Cause I don’t need you now.
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
Hey
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
Hey.

Do you remember as a girl,
You had a picture of the world
And you’d think about the great things you would find?
The thing is 9 to 5
And a struggle to survive
Ain’t exactly what you had in mind.
But that’s the beauty of life,
It takes a while to find,
And you can’t have things your own way all the time

Hey, you know you’re gonna live
To find another day,
It’s just today things ain’t so good.
Get yourself back again,
You’ve got so much love
That you can’t afford to lose

Goodbye Heartbreak
Don’t look for me
‘Cause I don’t need you now
So long heartache
Don’t look for me
‘Cause I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
Hey
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
Hey

Goodbye Heartbreak
Don’t look for me
‘Cause I don’t need you now
So long heartache
Don’t look for me
‘Cause I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now
I don’t need you now…
Ain’t so good
That you can afford

What Could Be Better

In the flow of life
Keeping an eye on tomorrow
I am happy half the time
I know you’re searching for a touch of feeling
But you don’t have the time
I know inside there’s a better weather
And the world outside really doesn’t matter
This love inside is a gentle colour
In the shade of our love
It’s a subtle matter

Somebody smile at me like the sun
Somebody that smile at me
What could be better?

If there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
I’ll be there on time
I’ve been let down before
I got up off the floor
It don’t change my mind
Cause I know inside there’s a better weather
And the world outside really doesn’t matter
This love inside is a gentle colour
In the shade of our love
It’s a subtle matter

Somebody smile at me like the sun
Somebody smile at me
What could be better?

We found it could be done
What could be better?
There’s nothing close
We found it could be done
What could be better?
There’s nothing close
Nothing close.

Beautiful Night

There’s a breeze in the air
There are stars in the sky
And I’m sure that there’s bound to be a reason
Why we are here
But for now we will wonder at the evening sky

So come on baby
So come on baby
Give it to your heart’s desire
So come on baby
So come on baby
Dig a little deeper down now

It’s a beautiful night
Way up beyond the stars we are
You can stay all night here
It’s a beautiful night

There’s a song that I’m sure I’ve heard you singing
That I try hard to hear
It’s a language of love, aha, in a way
That I don’t know
It ain’t loud
But it’s coming over crystal clear

So come on baby
So come on baby
Give it to your heart’s desire
So come on baby
So come on baby
Dig a little deeper down now

It’s a beautiful night
Way up beyond the stars we are
You can stay all night here
It’s a beautiful night

Sweetest Operator

Hey you don’t realise your strength
Sweet enough as you are don’t change
To tell the truth
When I’m with you
Ain’t nothing ever gonna let you down
The way you do the things you do
Ain’t never ever gonna let you down
The way you do the things you do

I’ve got a feeling you could be sweetest operator
I’ve got that feeling
That’s what you are
I’ve got a feeling you could be sweetest operator
I’ve got that feeling
That’s what you are

Hey I don’t recognize a soul
So I’ll stick to the things I know
But I’m still looking for a way
To break the pattern of the everyday
And you could prove the very thing
The way you operate is such a relief now

I’ve got a feeling you could be sweetest operator
I’ve got that feeling
That’s what you are
I’ve got a feeling you could be sweetest operator
I’ve got that feeling
That’s what you are

It’s effortless the way you make perfect sense
Of every word I ever spoke
And you refind the bitterness
Now I got a reason

Keep Remembering

Downtown
Middle of the afternoon
Sweet sound
Everybody’s on the move
But it really don’t feel like home
I know that something’s happened
I don’t seem to fit my shoes
Hometown
It’s always been a part of me
I know now
It don’t take much to darken it
It’s a difference of opinion
But it might as well be Mars to me
When I got the blues

Somebody I know told me yesterday
That you’re never coming back to me
Well you never know what the other say
At another time in another place

Well, well
What’s the use in crying then?
It’s the way of the world
And you know you’ve got the chance to change
And the brilliant thing is there’s a million things
That you know are always gonna help you take your mind off
I found out that I lost a part of me
It’s a better now
Though this thing’s been hard for me
Cause the day has come
I should be moving on
That’s the only way to go:
Pick it up and start again

Somebody I know told me yesterday
That you’re never coming back to me
Well you never know what the other say
At another time
In another place
Honey I know that it’s not the end of the world
But it hurts the same
When do you let go?
Honey I don’t know
Keep remembering
And just forget
Keep remembering
And don’t forget

The Way You Are

You know there’s always something
Really worth the wait
I wouldn’t switch for nothing
There’s nothing worth the change
People always try to take you for a ride
It ain’t no big surprise
Ain’t no cause to cry
You know that you’ll get by
If you are strong in your own mind

You don’t have to change the way you are
I really don’t think you’re giving yourself a chance
I wish you could hear someone who says: “Baby, don’t change! Baby, don’t change!”
Do your own thing, you’re beautiful the way you are

In your search for something
You didn’t have to chase
You sacrified the best things
And nearly lost your way
People always try to take you for a ride
Ain’t no big surprise
Ain’t no cause to cry
You know that you’ll get by
If you’re strong in your own mind

You don’t have to change the way you are
I really don’t think you’re giving yourself a chance
I wish you could hear someone who says: “Baby, don’t change! Baby, don’t change!”
Do your own thing, you’re beautiful the way you are

You really don’t
You don’t have to change
Give yourself a chance

Ocean Drive

Say it’s true, pink and blue
I can share your situation
Been holding our, emotions back
Will only make us cry
If you go, I know, but you know
It ain’t so serious anyway
When that cloud arrives we’ll live on…

Ocean Drive
Don’t know why you’re so blue
Sun’s gonna shine on everything you do
And the sky is so blue
Sun’s gonna shine on everything you do

He left you black and blue
Without a word of explanation
And he took your love for granted and
He left you high and dry
But you know someday,
when you’ll wonder what you see in him anyway
When that day arrives we’ll live on..

Ocean Drive
Don’t know why you’re so blue
Sun’s gonna shine on everything you do
and the sky is so blue
Sun’s gonna shine on everything you do

Don’t know why you’re so blue
Sun’s gonna shine on everything you do
and the sky is so blue
The suns gonna shine on everything you do

Don’t know why you’re so blue
Sun’s gonna shine on everything you do
and the sky is so blue
The suns gonna shine on everything you do

Loving Every Minute

You told me not to make you wait
Then you don’t call for days
You told me not to be too late
Then you don’t come to me

How many times you’re gonna let me down
You’re keeping me hanging on as if i’m
Wrapped around your finger
Never believed that I’d ever find myself
Looking up to the upper hand and
Loving every minute baby

I won’t mind, ain’t gonna give up as long as I know my own mind

Don’t wanna quit after all this time
I won’t mind, ain’t gonna give up as long as I know my own mind

Don’t wanna quit after all this time

Totally you lost the way you came
Rainbow coloured day opened out the way you changed

Then it all starts to fade

How many times you’re gonna let me down
Your keeping me hanging on as if i’m
Wrapped around your finger
Never believed that I’d ever find myself
Looking up to the upper hand and
Loving every minute baby

I won’t mind, ain’t gonna give up as long as I know my own mind

Don’t wanna quit after all this time
I won’t mind, ain’t gonna give up as long as I know my own mind

Don’t wanna quit after all this time

How many times you’re gonna let me down
You’re keeping me hanging on as if i’m
Wrapped around your finger
Never believed that I’d ever find myself
Looking up to the upper hand and
Loving every minute baby

I won’t mind, ain’t gonna give up as long as I know my own mind

Don’t wanna quit after all this time
I won’t mind, ain’t gonna give up as long as I know my own mind

Don’t wanna quit after all this time

Heavenly

Don’t tell me you’re not happy here
And that it don’t mean a thing
You’re waiting for a better deal
But that is not my scene
Cause if you live for later
But not today
You’re gonna miss a lot of wonderful things
So just investigate it
It’s not too late
Don’t underestimate the wonder of this

Only one that ever makes me feel totally heavenly
Ever wondered what would make you feel heavenly yeah

I’m finding a new side to you
You’re a quite a discover
I’m finding out
I’m starry-eyed
And money don’t mean a thing
Cause if you live with someone
You find a way
To understand that it’s about give and take
And if you give to someone
You start to see
The opportunity’s too good to throw away

Only one that ever makes me feel totally heavenly
Ever wondered what would make you feel heavenly yeah

Dream the dream girl
Let it take you there
A lake of heaven for the two of us to share
Ground beneath you
Gonna disappear
Leave the real world now and
Let it take you there
