HERE WITH YOU

1      RIGHT NOW        
  
 Not a day goes by when I don’t think of you
 And it’s no surprise
 When I close my eyes
 And you are in my view
  
 How I wish that you were mine
 For more than time allows
 Coz I really need to be with you
 RIGHT NOW
  
 With your sweet simple touch I feel so much
 You say the words that take me to the light
 You have the hands that warm me
 You understand what calms me
 In the shadows of the night
  
 How I wish that you were mine
 For more than time allows
 Coz I really need to be with you
 RIGHT NOW
 Where do you go, where d’you hide
When you’re not here beside me
Where are you now ?
Oh I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow
So baby, come find me today
You’ve gotta find a way .... Somehow
  
 If I could make a wish upon a tear
 I would wish that you were here
 Coz I really need to be with you
 RIGHT NOW
 I really need to be with you
 I really need to be with you
 RIGHT NOW I really need to be with you

2.   CATCH YOU                                              
 Misty moon floating on a river on a Sunday night in June
 Flashing silver would have caught my eye - 
But you walked by and I 
 Was definitely distracted by your hair and then 
Attracted to your smile
 Your fashion flair your sense of style, 
Your French cologne it filled the air and lingered there
 And I knew I had to
  
 Catch You  - Kiss You
 Touch you - keep you
 Hold you – have you
 Make you mine
 I had to  Catch You  - Kiss You
 Touch you - keep you
 So I could  love love love you all the time
  
 Suddenly my greatest fear was that you’d quickly disappear
 Fade into the mist.  I couldn’t take that risk - 
That's when the chase began
 My feet ran faster than my racing heart 
Passed lucky lovers in the park
 Already hand in hand, side by side
 Unlike you and I   
 But God I had  to try 
  
  (chorus)
  
 Next thing I knew - 
Avoice I own apparently called out to you    
 You didn’t hesitate at all, you stopped to stay 
And wait until I caught my breath and you
 A crazy way to meet.  
We walked and talked through sunrise, turning up the heat
 Then you surprised me when you said you’d have a lifetime of regret if you did not let me
  CATCH YOU  
 Not your average kind of date 
 Was it planned or was it fate    
 Who knows,  who cares anyway
 Year after year we come back here to play
 And each time I get to 
 (chorus)

 3   LONG LONG TIME 
  
 It’s been a long long  time since I saw you
 It’s been a long long time 
 And it’s been just as long
 As you’ve been gone
 That you’ve been on my mind
  
 And I’ve been long long longing to hold you
 I’ve had this longing for some time
 Now I know you know the deal 
 For this aching heart to heal
 I gotta feel your body next to mine
  
 Coz dreams and wishes and  make-believe kisses
 Will no longer do
 Hurry home hurry back coz I miss what we had
 And I know you’re missing it too
 Life’s too short to be filled with thoughts
 Of spending this time without you
  
 We need a long long long time together
 For what we have in mind  
 We’ve had long enough
 To do our solitary stuff
 And when it comes to us  we’ll take our time
 We’ll take our sweet long time

 4    YOU   
  
 Looking for adventure 
 Took me far away 
 A thousand nights ago
 Seen people everywhere
 With unfamiliar faces
 Friendly strangers
 I don’t care to know
 I don’t want to know
  
 Coz they’re not YOU
 They’re not YOU
 And I’m no one 
 If they’re not YOU
  
 I’ve crossed a million roads
 Climbed one hundred hills
 Turned new corners every day
 Been places everywhere
 With space to hang my hat
 Even a welcome mat
 But I don’t care to stay
 I don’t want to stay
  
 Coz you’re not there
 You’re not there
 And I’m nowhere
 If you’re not there
  
 I know I’ve borrowed time from our eternity
 I took the long way home
 And suddenly I feel like I’m somebody
 Who’s finally somewhere
 I really want to be
  
 Coz here you are
 And I’m with YOU
 Here I’ll stay
 If YOU will too
 Coz there’s no place I’d rather be
 Than here where you’re with me.  
  
 Oh here I’ll stay 
 ‘Cause I am here with YOU

 5.   DANCE WITH YOU                   
  
 Suddenly the room has a glow
 Guess it must be coz you are in it
 Temperature rises to comfortably warm
 Summer’s here I can feel it
 With you around the rhythm changes in the air
 With you I hear the sound of music everywhere
  
 So I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
 I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU 
 Every night for the rest of my life
 I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
  
 Silently you slip into my world
 You come to me with love and laughter
 You wrap your light around the heart of my soul
 Making every moment matter
 With just a kiss you fill my universe with song
 This gift of inspiration keeps me going strong
  
 So I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
 I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU 
 Every night for the rest of my life
 I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
  
 No  turn of time
 Will rock me out of rhyme
 Spin me round
 Or slow me down
  
 Coz I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
 I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU 
 Every night for the rest of my life
 I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU

 6     A MILLION YEARS     
 I can  see into your soul by looking in your eyes.       
 I can feel what’s in your heart  just by holding your hand.   
 I can hear your words unspoken
 I don’t need an explanation for what I already understand.  
  
 And I can sing your song,
 I can cry your tears.    
 For I have been a sister to your soul 
 For A MILLION YEARS
            
 You crack me up with all the funny things you say and do.
 And when I need it to your wisdom just comes  shining through. 
 You put me back together when I haven’t got a clue 
 and  oh there’s nothing better than a bear-hug from you 
  
 And when you sing my song,
 when you cry my tears,   
 I know you’ve been a sister to my soul     
 For A MILLION YEARS                                  
  
 In your backpack of experience you carry so much pain,
 the smiles that seldom the saw the sun, 
  the dances washed away by rain.  
 You have lived so many lives on just this earth alone.
 You’ve been  up and down, down and out, coming out on top
 You made it on your own
  
 It took time and one true lover 
 And a couple of trusted friends 
 and an innocent child to make you laugh again.
 Well  we all came together and we’ll stay right here 
 To sing your song for another  MILLION  YEARS
    
   And we will share your dreams.   
   We will catch your tears. 
   We will crush your fears till they disappear.        
   And we will circle your soul with an endless love          
   For another MILLION YEARS

 7    BLUE RAIN 
  
 Rain on my window falls from out of the dark
 Tears on my pillow 
 I cried them straight from my heart
 And somewhere in the dark
 I hear the whisper of your name
 In the blue BLUE RAIN
  
 Sad old midnight in a lazy mist
 The last time you held me
 The last time we kissed
 And somewhere in the mist
 I hear the whisper of your name
 In the blue  BLUE RAIN
  
 I thought all this rain would drown an old flame
 Strange how it just keeps on burning
 How the vision of you keeps returning
 In the BLUE RAIN, the BLUE RAIN
 BLUE RAIN
  
 Morning light melts the dream away
 Leaving long lonely hours to linger through the day
 But somewhere far away a whisper still remains
 Calling your name,  calling the night to fall again
 Bringing you back to me
 In the blue BLUE RAIN
  
 BLUE RAIN,  BLUE RAIN 
   Whispering your name   
    Blue BLUE RAIN - BLUE RAIN,
 BLUE RAIN - BLUE RAIN

 8          PIN STRIPE  BLUES           
  
 My baby he’s a working traveling man
 Wheeling and dealing from here to Japan
 Looks so fine in his PIN STRIPE BLUES
 You can see his confidence shine in his shoes
 But when my baby’s gone too long, oh, I miss him so
 Hanging out alone I get the PIN STRIPE BLUES of my own
  
 But my baby leaves me with the memory of
 His curly smile, his tender love
 He returns with a kiss and a ruby rose
 Then he slips right into his bedroom clothes
 And even though I know it’s barely for a couple of casual days
 It feels so good to temporarily put those PIN STRIPE BLUES away
  
 My baby, oh I know he tries his best
 Juggling love and job success
 I often win but then I lose
 To the power of those  PIN STRIPE BLUES
 Coz when my baby’s out of town – not home where he belongs
 Those PIN STRIPE BLUES still hang around – wearing me down
   
 Well just last night he called long distance with the news
 Said he’s now sick and tired of those Pin Stripes too
 Then he said he’s quitting work….he’s quitting work today
 So this time, he’ll be home to stay 
  
 Gonna meet my man at midday’s noon - 
That's when his train gets in
 Then on Platform Ten,  I’ll throw that suit right into the charity bin
 And I will never have to see, hang up, 
Or fold or ever clean or feel those
 PIN STRIPE BLUES  again!

 9   I BELIEVE I LOVE TO BE WITH YOU 
  
 I may not know your history 
 Or all the pain that you’ve been through
 I may not know your taste in wine
 But I think I know you
  
 I may not like some things you say
 Or some of what you do 
 I may not like the way you think
 But I still like you
 You are strong and you are wild
 Yet sweet as an innocent child
 You are fun to be around
 But you’re no fool
 You make me laugh
 You make me smile
 And that’s the reason why
 I Believe I Love To Be With You
 I Believe I Love To Be With You
  
 I may not remember the names of all your friends
 Or what you did last Tuesday afternoon
 I may not remember your number off by heart
 But I promise I’ll remember you
  
 (chorus)
  
 NoI would not love you more or less
 If we had no differences
 Coz they’re what make you interesting
 So don’t you ever change a thing
  
 (chorus)

10        WORTH YOUR WHILE 
          
 Taking it slow is the only way I know
 The only way to go
 To keep love strong
 So bear with me if you care for me
 And I will not keep you waiting too long
  
 Take a little stroll with me at your leisure
 I will give you all of me 
 I know your pleasure
 I will make the loving fascinating
 And I will not keep you waiting too long
  
 A little patience always leads to passion
 So much satisfaction
 Now that’s my style
 So if you’re ready
 For a love that’s slow but steady
 Stay
 I’ll make it WORTH YOUR WHILE
  
 I’ve seen too many good things lost in haste
 Love gone to waste too soon
 So I’m gonna make my loving last
 Won’t let it disappear too fast
 That’s why I make the moves I do
 And I’m ready to make my moves on you
                                 
                                                                 You’re gonna love it
Just thinking of it
Makes me smile
So when you’re ready 
For a love that’s slow but steady
Ooo...
I’m gonna make it WORTH YOUR WHILE

11      EVER                
  
 In your dreams do you ever see me
 In your heart do you ever feel me
 In your life will you ever need me anytime
  
 In your bed does your body miss me
 Do your lips ever want to kiss me
 On a star do you ever wish we were together
 Has it ever crossed your mind
  
 Do you whisper my name or ever say it out loud       
 Do you look for my face  when you’re lost in a crowd
 Do you stare into space wondering where I hide out         
 Do you ever 
 Do you ever
 ‘Cause  I  can’t stop thinking about you
 And Wondering how to 
 Do this without you
 Do I really have to
 No no no…
 Do I fill in the silence when you’re on your own
 Am I holding your hand when you’re walking alone
 Is it me who opens that door  when  you’re coming home
 Is it ever .....

12      THIS IS HOW IT IS  
  
 Long before I ever knew 
 I’d fall in love with you
 I made a promise 
 I knew I would always keep
 It was long before you loved me
 There was nothing I could do
 Coz my loyalty to commitment 
 Runs too deep
  
 And sure it hurts
 But This Is How It Is
 When you can’t be the one that I am with
  
 In another lifetime
 Everyone would know
 How much I’ve loved you
 All these years
 In another lifetime
 I would not let you go
 And there would be no need
 For all these tears
  
    (chorus)
  
  But you’re always in my heart
 You’re always in my dreams
 You’re in very song I write
 You’re in the air I breathe
  
   (chorus)

 13       I  DO ENJOY YOU SO      
  
 All the time I am away from you 
 I spend looking forward to 
 The fun things that we always seem to do
  
 When we sit at the piano and play that thing
 I’m swept away with that rush of Spring
 And the night goes on 
 coz there’s always one more song to sing
  
 Oh, oh, oh,  
 I DO ENJOY YOU SO
 Oh man, oh boy, 
  I DO ENJOY YOU SO
  
 Our conversations over cups of tea 
 Inspire and encourage and comfort me
 We seem to share and talk about everything so easily
  
 When I’ve got something I need to say
 You’re reliably only an email away
 Or that oh so welcome phone call at the end of a day
  
 (chorus)
  
  Every night I thank my lucky star
  For the  warm and wonderful friend you are
  You are closer than a brother, better  than a lover
  We must have known each other a billion dreams ago
  
 (chorus)
         
 You don’t try to be sophisticated
 You take life and you celebrate it 
 You don’t take love and make it complicated
  
 (chorus)

14       BUT TO LOVE YOU 
  
 There’s a moment stuck in time
 When your eyes first met mine
 I could not believe
 You would look at me that way
  
 Things have never been the same 
 Since you first said my name
 Because you came to be           
 A part of me that day
  
 Coz I could see the love in your eyes
 I could hear the love in your voice
 I could feel the love in your heart  
 And I had no choice
 But To Love You
  
 That was then now here we are
 Together we have come this far
 I do believe this path we’re on
 Is the one that’s ought to be
  
 Coz I still see the love in your eyes
 I still hear the love in your voice
 I still feel the love in your heart 
 And I have no choice
 But To Love You
 I’d have nothing to lose
 If I could consciously choose
 To keep on loving you
 Coz never before
 Have I been more sure
 That everything I need I have with you 
  
 I know I’ll  always 
 See the love in your eyes
 I will hear the love in your voice
 Forever I will feel the love in your heart 
 And I’ll have no choice
 But To Love You

 15       MY PRAYER
  
 There will come a day
 There will come a night
 When everything around you
 And all there is about you 
 Suddenly feels right
 There will be no doubt
 There will be no fear
 That is my wish
 That is MY PRAYER
 (yeah    yeah )
  
 There will be a world
 Filled with only love
 Where everything you have
 And all that you are  
 Really is more than enough
 There will be no pain
 No need to shed a tear
 That is my wish
 That is MY PRAYER
 (yeah    yeah )
  
 When all the children sing
 And all the angels dance
 Every living breathing thing
 Will finally get the chance to see
 How it’s all supposed to be
 What it really means to be free
  
 And it will be your time
 To live the life you choose
 Every moment like a dream
 Every move you make you win
 For there’re no battles left to lose
 And there’ll be only hope
 No reason to despair
 That is my wish
 That is MY PRAYER for you
 That is my wish
 That is MY PRAYER
 Yeah Yeah
