Total Eclipse of the Heart

(James Richard Steinman)

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit lonely

And you’re never coming round

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit tired

Of listening to the sound of my tears

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit nervous

That the best of all the years have gone by

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit terrified

And then I see the look in your eyes

Turnaround bright eyes, but every now and then I fall apart

Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight

And I need you more than ever

And if you only hold me tight

We’ll be holding on forever

And we’ll only be making it right

‘Cause we’ll never be wrong together

We can take it to the end of the line

Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)

I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark

We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

I really need you tonight

Forever’s gonna start tonight

Forever’s gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love

But now I’m only falling apart

And there’s nothing I can do

A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life

But now there’s only love in the dark

Nothing I can say

A total eclipse of the heart

Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight (and I need you now)

And I need you more than ever

And if you only hold me tight (and if you only)

We’ll be holding on forever

And we’ll only be making it right (‘cause we’ll never be wrong)

‘Cause we’ll never be wrong together

We can take it to the end of the line

Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)

I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark

We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

I really need you tonight

Forever’s gonna start tonight

Forever’s gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love

But now I’m only falling apart

And there’s nothing I can say

A total eclipse of the heart

A total eclipse of the heart

A total eclipse of the heart

Turn around bright eyes

It’s A Heartache

(Steve Wolfe, Ronnie Scott)

It’s a heartache

Nothing but a heartache

Hits you when it’s too late

Hits you when you’re down

It’s a fool’s game

Nothing but a fools game

Standing in the cold rain

Feeling like a clown

It’s a heartache

Nothing but a heartache

Love him till your arms break

Then he lets you down

It ain’t right with love to share

When you find he doesn’t care for you

It ain’t wise to need someone

As much as I depended on you

It’s a heartache

Nothing but a heartache

Hits you when it’s too late

Hits you when you’re down

It’s a fool’s game

Nothing but a fools game

Standing in the cold rain

Feeling like a clown

It ain’t right with love to share

When you find he doesn’t care for you

It ain’t wise to need someone

As much as I depended on you

Oh, it’s a heartache

Nothing but a heartache

Love him till your arms break

Then he lets you down

It’s a fools game

Standing in the cold rain

Feeling like a clown

It’s a heartache

Love him till your arms break

Then he lets you down

It’s a fools game

Standing in the cold rain

Lost in France(Ronnie Scott, Steve Wolfe)

I was lost in France

In the fields the birds were singing

I was lost in France

And the day was just beginning

As I stood there in the morning rain

I had a feeling I can’t explain

I was lost in France in love

I was lost in France

In the street a band was playing

And the crowd all danced

Didn’t catch what they were saying

When I looked up he was standing there

And I knew I shouldn’t but I didn’t care

I was lost in France in love

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

I was lost in France

And the vines were over-flowing

I was lost in France

And a million stars were glowing

And I looked round for a telephone

To say ‘baby I won’t be home’

I was lost in France in love

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

And I looked round for a telephone

To say ‘baby I won’t be home’

I was lost in France in love

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

Ooh la la la ooh la la la dance

Ooh la la la dancing

Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

(John Cameron Fogerty)

Someone told me long ago

There’s a calm before the storm

I know it’s been comin’ for some time

When it’s over so they say

It’ll rain a sunny day

I know shinin’ down like water

I want to know

Have you ever seen the rain?

I want to know

Have you ever seen the rain

Comin’ down on a sunny day?

Yesterday and days before

Sun is cold and rain is hard

I know been that way for all my time

‘Til forever, on it goes

Through the circle, fast and slow,

I know it can’t stop, I wonder

I want to know

Have you ever seen the rain?

I want to know

Have you ever seen the rain

Comin’ down on a sunny day?

Yeah

I want to know

Have you ever seen the rain?

I want to know

Have you ever seen the rain

Comin’ down on a sunny day?

Holding Out for A Hero

(Dean Pitchford / Jim Steinman)

Where have all the good men gone

And where are all the gods?

Where’s the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?

Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?

Late at night I toss and I turn

And I dream of what I need

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night

He’s gotta be strong

And he’s gotta be fast

And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light

He’s gotta be sure

And it’s gotta be soon

And he’s gotta be larger than life!

Larger than life

Somewhere after midnight

In my wildest fantasy

Somewhere just beyond my reach

There’s someone reaching back for me

Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat

It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night

He’s gotta be strong

And he’s gotta be fast

And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light

He’s gotta be sure

And it’s gotta be soon

And he’s gotta be larger than life

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above

Out where the lightning splits the sea

I could swear there is someone, somewhere

Watching me

Through the wind, and the chill, and the rain

And the storm, and the flood

I can feel his approach like a fire in my blood

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night

He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast

And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light

He’s gotta be sure

And it’s gotta be soon

And he’s gotta be larger than life

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night

He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast

And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light

He’s gotta be sure

And it’s gotta be soon

And he’s gotta be larger than life

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night

More Than A Lover

(Ronnie Scott/Steve Wolfe)

Falling like leaves

Give me a chance to recover

Deep in you eyes

Half of me lies

Let me be more than a lover

Let me be more than a lover

Oh, let it be known

You’re my heart, your my home

You’re the world that I wanna discover

All I can give is the way that I live

And I wanna be more than a lover

Oh, let me be more than a lover

Lovers are like

Stars in the night

Never quite touching each other

Deep in your eyes

Half of me lies

Let me be more than a lover

Let me be more than a lover

Oh, let it be known

You’re my heart, your my home

You’re the world that I wanna discover

All I can give is the way that I live

And I wanna be more than a lover

Oh, let me be more than a lover

Oh, let it be known

You’re my heart, your my home

You’re the world that I wanna discover

All I can give is the way that I live

And I wanna be more than a lover

Oh, let me be more than a lover

Let me be more than a lover
