It seems like dreams like I've always had Could be, should be making me glad But why am I blue? It's up to you to explain Well, I'm thinking maybe Baby, I might go away Someday maybe you'll come and say "It's you that I need" And you'll be pleading in vain... "It had to be you It had to be you Wondered around, finally found Somebody who Can make me be true Could make me feel blue Even be glad just to be sad Thinking of you Some others I've seen Might never be mean Never be cross, try be boss But they wouldn't do For nobody else gave me a thrill With all your faults I love you still It had to be you, wonderful you It had to be you Wondered around, finally found Somebody who could make me be true Even be glad to be sad Thinking of you Some others I've seen They might never be mean Never be cross, try to be boss They would not do, no, no For nobody else gave me a thrill with all your faults, I love you still It had to be you, wonderful you It had to be you!"

Maybe I'm old fashioned feeling as I do Maybe I'm living in the past But when I meet the right one I know that I'll be true My first love will be my last... When I fall in love It will be forever For 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 It will be completely For I'll never give my heart And the moment I can feel That you feel that way, too Is when I'll fall in love with you When I give my heart It will be completely For 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

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 hear old winter's song But I miss you most of all, my Darling When autumn leaves start to fall C'est une chanson, qui nous ressemble Toi tu m'aimais et je t'aimais Nous vivions tous, les deux ensemble Toi que m'aimais moi qui t'aimais Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s'aiment Tout doucement sans faire de bruit Et la mer efface sur le sable les pas des amants désunis Since you went away the days grow long And soon I hear old Winter's song But I miss you most of all, my Darling When Autumn leaves start to fall But I miss you most of all, my Darling When Autumn leaves start to fall

STARDUST 04:01
And now the purple dusk of twilight time Steals across the meadows of my heart High up in the sky the little stars climb Always reminding me that we're apart You wandered down the lane and far away Leaving me a song that will not die Love is now the stardust of yesterday The music of the years gone by Sometimes I wonder why I spend The lonely night dreaming of a song The melody haunts my reverie And I am once again with you When our love was new And each kiss an inspiration But that was long ago Now my consolation Is in the stardust of a song Beside a garden wall When stars are bright You are in my arms The nightingale tells his fairy tale A paradise where roses bloom Though I dream in vain In my heart it will remain My stardust melody The memory of love's refrain

Heaven, I'm in Heaven And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak And I seem to find the happiness I seek When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek Heaven, I'm in Heaven And the cares that hung around me through the week Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek Oh, I love to climb a mountain And reach the highest peak But it doesn't thrill me half as much As dancing cheek to cheek Oh, I love to go out fishing In a river or a creek But I don't enjoy it half as much As dancing cheek to cheek Come on and and dance with me I want my arms about you Those charms about you Will carry me through Heaven, I'm in Heaven And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak And I seem to find the happiness I seek When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek Come on and and dance with me I want my arms about you Those charms about you Will carry me through Right up to Heaven, I'm in Heaven And the cares that hung around me through the week Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak When we're out together dancing Out together dancing When we're out together dancing Cheek to cheek Oh, yeah!

When all the world is a hopeless jumble And the raindrops tumble all around Heaven opens a magic lane When all the clouds darken up the skyway There's a rainbow highway to be found Leading from your window pane To a place behind the sun Just a step beyond the rain Somewhere over the rainbow Way up high There's a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby Somewhere Over the rainbow Skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true Some day I'll wish upon a star And wake where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemon drops Way above the chimney tops That's where you'll find me Somewhere over the rainbow Blue birds fly Birds fly over the rainbow Why then, oh, why can't I? Somewhere over the rainbow Blue birds fly Birds fly over the rainbow Why then, oh, why can't I? If happy little blue birds fly Beyond the rainbow If happy little blue birds fly Beyond the rainbow Why, oh, why can't I?

Poets often use many words To say a simple thing But it takes thought and time and rhyme To make a poem sing! with music and words I've been playing For you I have written a song To be sure that you know what I'm saying I'll translate as I go along Fly me to the moon And let me play among the stars Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars In other words, hold my hand In other words, oh, Mama, kiss me You filled my heart with song Let me sing forever more You are all I longed for All I worship and adore In other words Please be true In other words I love you! You filled my heart with song Let me sing forever more You are all I longed for All I worship and adore In other words Please be true In other words I love you!

As Dorothy Parker once said to her boyfriend 'Fare thee well' As Columbus announced when he knew he was bounced 'It was swell, Isobel, swell' As Abelard said to Eloise 'Don't forget to drop a line to me please' As Juliet cried in her Romeo's ear 'Hey, Baby, why not face the fact my Dear?' It was just one of those things Just one of those crazy flings One of those bells that now and then rings Just one of those things It was just one of those nights Just one of those fabulous flights A trip to the moon on gossamer wings Just one of those things If we'd thought a bit of the end of it When we started painting the town We'd have been aware that our love affair Was too hot not to cool down So goodbye, goodbye, goodbye dear and amen Here's hoping we meet now and then It was great fun But it was just one of those things Oh, if we'd thought a bit of the end of it When we started painting the town We'd have been aware that our love affair Was too hot, not to cool down So goodbye dear and amen Here's hoping we meet now and then It was great fun, it was great fun But it was just one of those things It was just one of those things

PEACE 04:05
There's a place that I know Where the sycamores grow And daffodils have their fun Where the cares of the day Seem to slowly fade away In the glow of the evening sun Peace, when the day is done If I go there real late Let my mind meditate On everything to be done If I search deep inside Let my conscience be my guide Then the answers are sure to come Don't have to worry none When you find peace of mind Leave your worries behind Don't say that it can't be done With a new point of view Life's true meaning comes to you And the freedom you seek is won Peace is for everyone

SONG FOR YOU 04:30
I've been so many places in my life and time I've sung a lot of songs, I made some bad rhyme I've acted out my love in stages With ten thousand people watching But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you I know your image of me is what I hope to be I've treated you unkindly but Darlin', can't you see There's no one more important to me Darlin', can't you please see through me Cause we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you You taught me precious secrets of the truth withholding nothing You came out in front when I was hiding But now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding I love you in a place where there's no space or time I love you for my life you are a friend of mine And when my life is over Remember when we were together We were alone and I was singing this song for you You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing You came out in front and I was hiding But now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding I love you in a place where there's no space or time I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine And when my life is over Remember when we were together We were alone and I was singing this song for you We were alone and I was singing this song for you We were alone and I was singing my song for you
