The Colour of My Love

 

The Power of Love

The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling like thunder now
As I look in your eyes

I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake

(first chorus)
'Cause I am your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can

Lost is how I'm feeling lying in your arms
When the world outside's too
Much to take
That all ends when I'm with you

Even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away
Never wonder where I am
'Cause I am always by your side

(repeat first chorus)

(second chorus)
We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on
Is light years away

(repeat first chorus)

(repeat second chorus)

 

Misled

I tought I knew you
Tought that I knew you well
We had a rhythm
But I guess you never can tell

Oh I learned early
Never to ignore the signs
You'll be forgiven
It ain't worth that much to my mind

Lovin' you (was) so easy
It's hard to say goodbye
But if it's the way it goes it goes

(Chorus)
Just a page in my history
Just another one of those mysteries
One more lover that used to be
If you think you're in my head
You been seriously misled

Loving somebody ain't your average 9 to 5
It takes conviction it takes a will to survive
I'm not somebody who commits the crime
And leaves the scene
But when I've been dissed
I don't spend much time on what might've been
I'm not about self-pity
Your love did me wrong
So I'm movin', movein' on

(Chorus)
Just a page in my history
Just another one of those mysteries
One more lover that used to be
If you think you're in my head
You been seriously misled

 

Think Twice

Don't think I can't feel there's something wrong
You've been the sweetest part of my life so long
I look in your eyes, there's a distant light
And you and I know there'll be a storm tonight
This is getting serious
Are you thinking 'bout you or us

(chorus)
Don't say what you're about to say
Look back before you leave my life
Be sure before you close that door
Before you roll those dice
Baby think twice

Baby think twice for the sake of our love, for the memory
For the fire and the faith that was you and me
Baby I know it ain't easy when your soul cries out for a higher ground
'Coz when you're halfway up, you're always halfway down
But baby this is serious
Are you thinking 'bout you or us

(repeat first chorus)

(breakdown)
Baby this is serious
Are you thinking 'bout you or us

Don't say what you're about to say
Look back before you leave my life
Be sure before you close that door
Before you roll those dice

Don't do what you're about to do
My everything depends on you
And whatever it takes, I'll sacrifice
Before you roll those dice
Baby think twice

 

Only One Road

I'm looking back through the years
Down this highway
Memories, they all lead up to this one day
And many dreams lost along the way
Haunt me still
I guess they always will

When love was too much to bear
I just left it there
But here I stand face to face
With this heart of mine

Livin' without you I only fall behind
We had a love most people never find
All this time I never realized
And the courage I finally found
Has made me turn around

(Chorus)
There is only one road I'm walkin'
Only one lifetime one heart to guide me
Only one road I'm walkin'
But I'm gonna run back, I'm gonna run back
'Cause I need you right here
Beside me

I can still hear the song of your laughter
I can still taste the sorrow of your tears
We said goodbye but our hearts did not hear
Now my love there's nothing left to fear
With all my heart put me through
It leads me back to you

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

But I'm gonna run back, I'm gonna run back
'Cause I need you right here
Beside me

 

Everybody's Talkin' My Baby Down

People are sayin'
That boy is gonna hurt you
His kind of love is not for real
He's only playin'
Foolin' with your heart girl
But I know how he makes me feel
And I don't need any other proof
They just don't understand
They don't know the truth

Momma says he's bad for me
Poppa says I'll be sorry
Everybody's talkin' my baby down
And all my friends doubt him
Tell me I should live without him
Everybody's talkin' my baby down

He's not like the others
Nobody wants to see it
They don't even wanna try
Judge a book by its cover
And you'll never know the story
There's so much more than meets the eye
Oh and I know his heart is true
I don't need anyone
To tell me what to do

(Chorus)
My sisters and my brothers
Tell me I should find another
Everybody's talkin' my baby down

Oh but they can't feel his touch
They can't feel his kiss
They don't know what it's like to be loved like this
I don't care about their point of view
'Cause it's understood
When the love is good
Nothin' else is gonna do

(Chorus)

No they don't know what he's all about
Everybody's just wanna talk my baby down
No they can't see that his heart is gold
Everybody wanna treat my baby so cold, so cold

(Chorus)

 

Next Plane Out

I listen to the sound of the rain fallin' down my window
Prayin' for a gentle wind
To bring my baby back again
Tryin' to be strong but I'm not getting any stronger
Loneliness is tearing apart this heart of mine
I lay awake 'coz I can't take another night lonely
It's been too long, I can't hold on no more

Leavin' on the next plane out
'Coz I gotta see my baby
It's been too long since I held him in my arms
And I just won't sleep at night
Till he's sleeping here beside me
Here beside me again
Gotta be with my baby

Talking on the phone but that don't make it any better
Nothing's gonna ease this pain
Until I'm in his arms again
Runnin' down the stairs there's a taxi that's waiting for me
Loneliness I'm gonna leave you far behind
I'd walk for days through pouring rain
Anything to be with him
It's been so long, I can't be strong no more

Leavin' on the next plane out
'Coz I gotta see my baby
It's been too long since I held him in my arms
And I just won't sleep at night
Till he's sleeping here beside me
Here beside me again

Gotta be with him
Gotta be by his side
Gotta be with him
My heart's made up my mind

Leavin' on the next plane out
'Coz I gotta see my baby
It's been too long since I held him in my arms
And I just won't sleep at night
Till he's sleeping here beside me
Here beside me again
'Coz I gotta see my baby
It's been too long since I held him in my arms
And I just won't sleep at night
Till he's sleeping here beside me
Here beside me again

Gotta be with my baby, gonna be with my baby
Gonna take the next plane or the next train
Gotta get there gotta see my baby
And nothing's gonna stop me from leavin' this time
Leavin' on the next plane out, , ,

 

Real Emotion

You don't have to give me rings on my fingers
Promise me the moon and the stars in the sky
Or bring me roses just to show me you love me
That ain't gonna win this heart of mine
All the diamonds you can buy won't impress me
Pretty words ain't gonna prove your love
I need more than just tokens of affection
I'm not asking for too much now baby
I don't need no fancy cars
Just need something from the heart, , , whoa

I need real emotion
Feel, gotta feel it inside
Give me that real emotion
'Coz I need some
Need to feel some tonight
Give me a love that's genuine
Real emotion, real emotion

Show me something that my heart can believe in
Imitation love don't mean a thing
Baby it's gonna be the real thing or nothing
Show me what's it gonna be now baby
I'm not asking much from you
Just a love that's deep and true, , , whoa

I need real emotion
Feel, gotta feel it inside
Give me that real emotion
'Coz I need some
Need to feel some tonight
Give me a love that's genuine
Real emotion, real emotion

Not a cheap imitation of love
I need something that's real
I can feel in my heart baby
I've been waiting so long
For a love, for a love, for a love that's strong
I don't need no fancy cars
Just need something from the heart, , , whoa

(Chorus)

 

When I Fall in Love

When I fall in love
It will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love

In a restless world
Like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many
Moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart
I give it completely
Or I'll never give my heart

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you

 

Love Doesn't Ask Why

Love doesn't ask why
It speaks from the heart
And never explains
Don't you know that
Love doesn't think twice
It can come all at once
Or whisper from a distance

Don't ask me if this feeling's right or wrong
It doesn't have to make much sense
It just has to be this strong
'Cause when you're in my arms I understand
We don't try to have a voice
When our hearts make the choices
There's no plan
It's in our hands

Love doesn't ask why
It speaks from the heart
And never explains
Don't you know that
Love doesn't think twice
It can come all at once
Or whisper from a distance

Now I can feel what you're afraid to say
If you give your soul to me
Will you give too much away
We can't let this moment pass us by
Can't question this chance
Or expect any answers
We can try
But love doesn't ask you why

(Instrumental)

So let's take what we found
And wrap it around us

Love doesn't ask why
It speaks from the heart
And never explains
Don't you know that
Love doesn't think twice
It can come all at once
Or whisper from a distance

Love doesn't ask why

 

Refuse to Dance

Got your invitation to the dance
Wear your party dress
Maybe I was just an innocent
But I confess
I never even knew the song
The orchestra was playing

See the cuties in their party clothes
Oh it's getting warm
Off the shoulder cut into the hip
Like a uniform
Did you think I'd want to tow the line
Well now the line is broken

(Chorus)
Refuse to dance
Refuse to dance
Refuse to dance
Refuse to dance

You said you're such a pretty thing
You could make a mark
I'll teach you all the steps you'll need
Guide you through the dark
Suddenly I tought I knew the song
The orchestra was playing

(Repeat Chorus)

See how they follow
You say jump. They jump
You say turn. They turn
Look back in sorrow
I won't be there

(Repeat Chorus to fade)

 

I Remember L.A.

I remember L.A.
Seems a lifetime ago
We were stars on Sunset Boulevard
What a movie we made

There were days in the sun
That have stayed forever young
Nights when passion was invincible
We tought love would never die

(Chorus)
There were moments in that lifetime
That my heart still replays
There were minutes, there were hours, there were days
There are moments I still love you that same way
When I remember L.A.

I remember goodbye
I watched your plane out of sight
Love was over, time to close the book
Still I go back for one last look

(Repeat Chorus) 

 

No Livin' Without Lovin' You

If you ever leave me
Life will go on
Stars will still be
Bright as diamonds in the sky now
Even if you said goodbye now
Oh, the clock wouldn't stop, no
That sun would keep shinning down
If you weren't here with me
This world would still be spinnin' 'round
But baby there would be

Just no living without loving you
How could I ever survive
Just no living without loving you
It would be like living without being alive without you

If you ever walk out this door
What would I have left to live for
What would there be left to do now
What would I be without you now
Oh, the clock wouldn't stop, no
Each day would go on just the same
There would still be air to breath
It wouldn't stop the sun and rain
But baby there would be

Just no living without loving you
How could I ever survive
Just no living without loving you
It would be like living without being alive without you

That sun would still keep shinning down
If you weren't here with me
That world would still be spinnin' 'round
But you know I would have nothing
Won't have no life if I don't have your loving
If I don't have you with me

Just no living without loving you
How could I ever survive
Just no living without loving you
It would be like living without being alive without you

 

Lovin' Proof

I know some lovers would be satisfied
With sweet "I Love You's" and some pretty lines
But that won't get you in this heart of mine
No you'll never steal my heart away
With just words sweet words that you say
It's all in the things that you do
I'm telling you

If you want me to believe
That I'm the only one you need
I need lovin' proof
I need lovin' proof
Baby hold me in your arms
And show me something from the heart
Give me lovin' proof
I need lovin' proof from you, ooh baby

And if the love you got is strong and true
and if you love me like you say you do
Your tender touch will tell the honest truth
And your kiss can never tell a lie
'Coz I'd see it in your eyes
There's one way to ease any doubt
I tell you now

If you want me to believe
That I'm the only one you need
I need lovin' proof
Baby I won't be impressed
Unless I get some tenderness
Give me lovin' proof
I need lovin' proof from you, ooh baby

(I need lovin' proof)
If the love is right
(I need lovin' proof)
Prove it to me all night
(I need lovin' proof)
From you
'Coz you'll never steal my heart away
With just words sweet words that you say
It's all in the things that you do
I'm telling you, telling you baby

(Chorus)

 

Just Walk Away

I know I never loved this way before
And no one else has loved me more
With you I've laughed and cried
I have lived and died
What I wouldn't do just to be with you

I know I must forget you and go on
I can't hold back my tears too long
Though life won't be the same
I've got to take the blame
And find the strenght I need to let you go

Just walk away
Just say goodbye
Don't turn around now you may see me cry
I mustn't fall apart
Or show my broken heart
Or the love I feel for you

So walk away
And close the door
And let my life be as it was before
And I'll never never know
Just how I let you go
But there's nothing left to say
Just walk away

There'll never be a moment I'll regret
I've loved you since the day we met
For all the love you gave
And all the love we made
I know I've got to find the strenght to say

Just walk away
Just say goodbye
Don't turn around now you may see me cry
I mustn't fall apart
Or show my broken heart
Or the love I feel for you

So walk away
And close the door
And let my life be as it was before
And I'll never never know
Just how I let you go
But there's nothing left to say
Just walk away

 

The Colour of My Love

I'll paint my mood in shades of blue
Paint my soul to be with you
I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones
Draw your mouth to my own

I'll draw your arms around my waist
Then all doubt I shall erase
I'll paint the rain that softly lands on your wind-blown hair

I'll trace a hand to wipe out your tears
A look to calm your fears
A silhouette of dark and light
While we hold each other oh so tight

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Swearing that we'll never part
That's the colour of my love

I'll paint the truth
Show how I feel
Try to make you completely real
I'll use a brush so light and fine
To draw you close and make you mine

I'll paint the truth
Show how I feel
Try to make you completely real
I'll use a brush so light and fine
To draw you close and make you mine

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Swearing that we'll never part
That's the colour of my love

I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn so much to try

And with this ring our lives will start
Swearing that we'll never part
I offer what you cannot buy
Devoted love until we die
