Time, Love & Tenderness

LOVE IS A WONDERFUL THING

Birds fly, they don?t think twice

They simply spread their wings

The sun shines, it don?t ask why

Or what the whole thing means

 The same applies to you and I

We never question that

So good, it?s understood

Ain?t no conjecture

Just a matter of fact

Chorus:

Love is a wonderful thing

Make ya smile through the pouring rain

Love is a wonderful thing

I?ll say it again and again

Turn your world into one sweet dream

Take your heart and make it sing

Love, love is a wonderful thing

The only thing a river knows

Is running to the sea

And every spring when a flower grows

It happens naturally

The same magic when you?re in my arms

No logic can define

Don?t know why, just feels so right

I only know it happens every time

Chorus

 Oh when the cold wind blows

I know you?re gonna be there to warm me

That?s what keeps me goin?

And our sweet love will keep on growin?

Juts keeps growin?

 Chorus

 Love is a wonderful, wonderful thing

Love is a wonderful, wonderful thing

It?s what makes honey taste sweet

It?s what makes your life complete

(M. Bolton- A. Goldmark)


TIME, LOVE AND TENDERNESS

So you say that you can?t go on

Love left you cryin?

And you say al your hope is gone

And what?s the use in tryin?

What you need is to have some faith

Shake off those sad blues

Get yourself a new view

Oh, nothing is as sad as it seems, you know

?Cause someday you?ll laugh at the heartache

Someday you?ll laugh at the pain

Somehow you?ll get through the heartbreak

Somehow you can get through the rain

Chorus:

When love puts you through the fire

When love puts you through the test

Nothing cures a broken heart

Like time, love and tenderness

When you think your world is over

Baby just remember this

Nothing heals a broken heart

Like time, love and tenderness

I understand how you?re feeling now

And what you?ve been through

But your world?s gonna turn around

So baby don?t you be blue

All it takes is a little time

To make it better

The hurt won?t last forever

Oh, all the tears are all gonna dry you know

?Cause someday you?ll laugh at the heartache

Someday you?ll laugh at the pain

You may be down on your luck

But baby that old luck?s gonna change

 Chorus

Baby, oh baby you just need some

You just need some

Time, love and tenderness

Time, love and tenderness

The hurt ain?t gonna last forever

Time, love and tenderness

Time, love and tenderness

 Chorus

Baby, oh baby all you need

All you need is time, love and tenderness

Chorus

Time, love and tenderness

Time, love and tenderness

Time, love and tenderness

Time, love and tenderness

Chorus

(D. Warren)


MISSING YOU NOW

I talk to you but it?s not the same as touchin? you

And every time you whisper my name, I wanna run to you

We?ll be together, it won?t be long, it won?t be long

But it feels like forever, and it?s hard to be strong

Chorus:

Baby, ?cause I?m missing you now

And it?s driving? me crazy

How I?m needin? you baby

I?m missing you now

Can?t wait till I?m alone with you

To show you how I?m missing you now

Wishin? you were here by my side is all that I can do

Got my arms around my pillow at night, they should be holdin? you

Thought I was stronger, how could I know, how could

I know

I can?t take this much longer

It?s so hard on my soul

Chorus

Baby I just can?t wait

Till I see your face

Chase away this loneliness inside

When you?re close to my heart

Right here in my arms

Then and only then

Will I be satisfied

I?m missing you now

We?ll be together, it won?t be long, it wont? be long

But it feels like forever, and it?s hard to be strong

Chorus

(M. Bolton- W. Afanasieff- D. Warren)


FOREVER ISN?T LONG ENOUGH

The tickin? of the clock

The beating of my heart

Pounding like a drum

In the dark for you

If I could conquer time

I?d love you day and night

And make this moment last

Baby all my life

Ask me how long I?ll need you

Ask me how long I?ll be there

Chorus:

Forever isn?t long enough, to give you my love, to give

You my love

Till the end of time ain?t time enough

For everything I wanna do

Forever isn?t long enough, to give all my love, to you

I watch you as you sleep

I?m jealous of the night

I?d steal you from your dreams

Just to buy more time

So much in my heart

So much in my soul

A lifetime ain?t enough

To ever let you know

Tell me this will be for always

Tell me you?ll always be there

Chorus

?Cause the time is passin? by

and the more it slips away

when I look into your eyes

I know baby?

It isn?t long enough, to give you my love

Forever ain?t enough to give it all to you

There isn?t time enough to see it all through

Forever ain?t enough to give my love to you

Chorus

(M. Bolton- D. Warren- D. Child)


NOW THAT I FOUND YOU

I can still remember

When all I had was time

A time when I had nothin?

But this empty heart of mine

When I needed inspiration

When the night was all I knew

You were the light shinin? into my life

The reason for all the love I? m feelin?

Chorus:

Now that I?ve found you

I don?t know how  I lived without you

I don?t know how I survived without your love

Now that I?ve found you

I only know I?d be lost without you

I found the love

That I?ll never find again

?Cause all I ever needed

And all I ever wanted

Has come true

I found it all, now that I?ve found you

I could?ve searched forever

And never realized

The treasure of a lifetime

Was the love inside your eyes

When I reach for inspiration

In your touch, it?s always there

Givin? me faith every step of the way

Givin? me all I ever needed

Chorus

And every step of the way

Gonna dedicate my heart to you

Pr9omise you my world forever

Pledgin? my love my whole life through

Chorus

(M. Bolton- D. Warren)


WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN

When a man loves a woman

Can?t keep his mind on nothin? else

He?d trade the world

For a good thing he?s found

If she is bad, he can?t see it

She can do no wrong

Turn his back on his best friend

If he puts her down

When a man loves a woman

Spend his very last time

Trying to hold on to what he needs

He?d give up all his comforts

And sleep out in the rain

If she said that?s the way

It ought to be

When a man loves a woman

I give you everything I?ve got (yeah)

Trying to hold on

To your precious love

Baby please don?t treat me bad

When a man loves a woman

Deep down in his soul

She can bring him such misery

If she is playing him for a fool

He?s the last one to know

Loving eyes can never see

Yes when a man loves a woman

I know exactly how he feels

? Cause baby, baby, baby

I am a man

When a man loves a woman

(C. Lewis- A. Wright)


WE?RE NOT MAKIN? LOVE ANYMORE

Here we are, just goin? through the motions one more time

You look into my eyes, but you don?t see me

Here I am, feelin? like a stranger in your arms

I touch you, I hold you, but lately I don?t know you

Something is wrong but we go on from day-to-day

(And) we just pretend it all away

we act like nothing?s changed

But in our hearts we know, it?s not the same

Chorus:

?Cause we?re not makin? love anymore

Baby, we?re not makin? love like before

We may hold each other tight

Say that everything?s alright

But we?re not makin? love anymore

 Remember when, you couldn?t wait to run into my arms

When the love inside my heart was all you needed

Remember when, you made me wish the night would

Never end

The fire, the thunder, we lived to love each other

If ever two hearts were one, then it was yours and mine

But that was another place in time

Now all we have to show

Are memories of a dream we used to know

Chorus

 When did we lose our way

We had it all

Don?t know how it al just slipped away

But oh, can we get it back again

Is it too late

Can we try

Just one time

?Cause darling?

 Chorus

 We?re not makin? love anymore

Baby we?re not makin? love like before

Can we find a way to try

Find the magic one more time

?Cause we?re not makin? love

(M. Bolton- D. Warren)


NEW LOVE

There?s always somethin? new about you

Always somethin?, takes me by complete surprise

Every time I see you, I see a part of you

Ooh, I?ve never seen before

 Every day and night, the more we know each other

Every single time, the more that I discover

Chorus:

It?s a new love, always feels like a new love

Every touch is feelin? so much

Like the very first touch

Like a new love, always feels like a new love

It?s never old, whenever we make love

And I can?t get enough of this new love

I?m still excited, just talkin? to you

I?m still inspired, just walkin? next to you

Girl the way I need you

I find as time goes by, ooh I need you even more

 Nothin? feels as good, as good as us together

Nothin? in the world, no, there ain?t nothin? better

Than this?

Chorus

We can just go on and on

Long as we keep this love

Long as we keep this love a?

Chorus

(M. Bolton- D. Warren- D. Child)


SAVE ME

Tonight I feel like a prisoner

On fire, waiting desperately

Denied, sentenced forever more

Only your love can set me free

 I search my heart in vain

To understand what I?m supposed to

Ain?t never felt this way

But there was never anyone like you

Chorus:

Lover, you?ve gotta save me, oh woman don?t ya drive

Me crazy

Lover you?ve gotta save me, believe me

You?re the one, won?t ya come and save me

 Inside, so deep in the heart of me

You?ve got this power, I just can?t explain

In this life, this world of insanity

I?m at your mercy when you call my name

 Something in your touch defies all reason

With your passion rules

I never felt this much

But there was never anyone like you

 Chorus

Take me through this fire, this ranging wall of flames

Only you can break me from these chains

Chorus

Save me

(M. Bolton- W. Afanasieff-A. Goldmark)


STEEL BARS

In the night I hear you speak

Turn around, you?re in my sleep

Feel your hands inside my soul

You?re holding on and you won?t let go

I?ve tried running but there?s no escape

Can?t bend them, and (I know) I juts can?t break these?

Chorus:

Steel bars, wrapped all around me

I?ve been your prisoner since the day you found me

I?m bound forever, till the end of time

Steel bars wrapped around this heart of mine

Trying hard to recognize

See the face behind the eyes

Fell your haunting ways like chains

?Round my heart they still remain

I?m still running, but there?s nowhere to hide

My love for you has got me locked up inside these?

Chorus

And with every step I take

Every desperate move I make

It?s clear to me

What can all my living mean

When time itself don?t mean a thing

When time itself don?t mean a thing

I?m still loving you

Chorus

(M. Bolton- B. Dylan)
