I Beg Of You
I Believe
I Believe In The Man In The Sky
I Can Help
I Can't Help It
I Can't Stop Loving You
I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine
I Don't Wanna Be Tied
I Don't Want To
I Feel So Bad
I Feel That I've Known You Forever
If Every Day Was Like Christmas
If I Can Dream
If I Get Home On Christmas Day
If I Loved You
If I'm A Fool
If I Were You
I Forgot To Remember To Forget
If That Isn't Love
If The Lord Wasn't Walking By My Side
If We Never Met Again
If You Don't Come Back
If You Love Me
If You Talk In Your Sleep
If You Think I Don't Need You
I Got A Feelin' In My Body
I Got A Woman
I Got Lucky
I Got Stung
I Gotta Know
I, John
I Just Can't Help Believin'
I Just Can't Make It By Myself
I'll Be back
I'll Be Home For Christmas
Iíll Be Home On Christmas Day
I'll Be There
I'll Hold You In My Heart
I'll Never Fall In Love Again
I'll Never Know
I'll Never Let You Go
I'll Never Stand In Your Way
I'll Remember You
I'll Take You
I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen
I Love Only One Girl
I Love You Because
I'm Beginning To Forget You
I'm Coming Home
I'm Countin' On You
I Met Her Today
I'm Falling In Love Tonight
I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Cry
I'm Gonna Walk Dem Golden Stairs
I Miss You
I'm Leavin'
I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone
I'm Movin' On
I'm Not The Marrying Kind
I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
I'm With A Crowd But Oh So Alone
I'm Yours
Indescribably Blue
I Need Somebody To Lean On
I Need Your Love Tonight
I Need You So
Inherit The Wind
In My Father's House
In My Way
In The Garden
In The Ghetto
In Your Arms
I Really Don't Want To Know
I Shall Be Released
I Shall Not Be Moved
Is It So Strange
Island Of Love
I Slipped, I stumbled, I Fell
It Ain't No Big Thing, But It's Growing
It Feels So Right
I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here
It Hurts Me
It Is No Secret
It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin'
Ito Eats
It's A Matter Of Time
It's A Sin
It's A Wonderful World
It's Carnival Time
It's Diff'rent Now
It's Easy For You
It's Impossible
It's Midnight
It's Now Or Never
It's Only Love
It's Over
Its Still Here
Its Your Baby, You Rock It
It Won't Be Long
It Won't Seem Like Christmas
I've Got A Thing About You Baby
I've Got Confidence
I've Got To Find My Baby
I've Lost You
I Want To Be Free
I Want You, I Need You, I Love You
I Want You With Me
I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago
I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water
I Was The One
I Will Be Home Again
I Will Be True

I Beg Of You

I don't want my heart to be broken
Cause it's the only one I've got
So darling please be careful
You know I care a lot
Darling please don't break my heart
I beg of you

I don't want no tears a-falling
You know I hate to cry
But that's what's bound to happen
I you only say goodbye
Darling please don't say goodbye
I beg of you

Hold my hand and promise
That you'll always love me true
Make me know you'll love me
The same way I love you little girl

You got me at your mercy
Now that I'm in love with you
So please don't take advantage
Cause you know my love is true
Darling please please love me too
I beg of you

Hold my hand and promise
That you'll always love me true
Make me know you'll love me
The same way I love you little girl

You got me at your mercy
Now that I'm in love with you
So please don't take advantage
Cause you know my love is true
Darling please please love me too
I beg of you

I Believe

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come
To show the way
I believe, I believe

I believe above a storm the smallest prayer
Can still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word

Everytime I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe

Everytime I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe

Written by Drake, Graham, Stillman and Shirl



I Believe In The Man In The Sky

The steps that lead to any church
Form a stairway to a star
They're part of God and should be trod
More often than they are

I believe in the man in the sky
I believe with his help Iíll get by
My footsteps may falter
My eyes may grow dim
But he's my Gibraltar
I'm trusting in him

Though a sparrow is all I may be
On me he will still keep an eye
Yes Iím singing his praise
Till the end of my days
I believe in the man in the sky

Sparrow, sparrow am I
Keep an eye
Yes Iím singing his praise
Till the end of my days
I believe in the man in the sky

Written by Richard Howard



I Can Help

If you've got a problem, I don't care what it is
If you need a hand, I can assure you this
I can help, I've got two strong arms, I can help
It would sure do me good to do you good,
Let me help

It's a fact that people get lonely, ain't nothing new
But a woman like you baby, should never have the blues
Let me help, I've got two for me, let me help
It would sure do me good to do you good
Let me help

When I go to sleep at night, you're always a part of my dream
Holding me tight and telling me everything I want to hear
Don't forget me baby, all you gotta do is call
You know how I feel about you, if I can do anything at all
Let me help

If your child needs a daddy, I can help
It would sure do me good to do you good,
Let me help

Written by Billy Swan



I Can't Help It

Today I passed you on the street
And my heart was at your feet
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

Somebody else stood by your side
And he looked so satisfied
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

A memory from the past came slowly stealing
As I braced your arm and walked so close to you (yeah)
Oh heaven only knows how much I miss you
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

Written by Hank Williams



I Can't Stop Loving You

I can't stop loving you
So I've made up my mind
To live in memory 
Of such an old lonesome time

I can't stop wanting you
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday.

Those happy hours 
That we once knew
Though long ago, 
They still make me blue

They say that time 
Heals a broken heart
But time has stood still
Since we've been apart

Written by Don Gibson



I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine.
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby.

Well, it ain't no fun with the sun around.
I get going when the sun goes down
And I'm with my baby.

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss,
And we're gonna kiss some more.
Who cares how many times we kiss,
'Cause at a time like this, who keeps score?

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I meet my baby.

And it don't matter if it's sleet or snow,
The drive-in's cozy when the lights are low
And I'm with my baby.

Makes no difference if the rain comes down
I don't notice when she's around.
Oh boy, what a baby.

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss
and
We're gonna kiss some more.
Well, one kiss from my baby doll 
Makes me hot-
More more more more.

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I'm with my baby.

Written by David



I Don't Wanna Be Tied

I want my share of love, it might as well be known
But I ain't thinking of one girl to love alone
That ain't the way it's gonna be, I'm on my own and I am free
And I've been satisfied, so I don't wanna be tied

Somebody's loving arms can sure be sweet I've found
But I want no-one's arms to ever hold me down
Once I get caught inside a net I'm gonna run I bet
I'm gonna run and hide, I don't wanna be tied

I've seen lovers who were matched, they thought that love could stay
Once they cared and got attached, it seems that love just slipped away
Don't want no claims on me, 
don't want no chains that bind 
As anyone could see 
I say what's on my mind
Well there ain't nothing I conceal, I'm gonna play the field
The field of love is wide , 

I don't wanna be tied 
The field of love is wide, 
I don't wanna be tied 
The field of love is wide,
I don't wanna be tied 
I said I don't, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be tied

Written by Baum, Giant and Kaye



I Don't Want To

I don't want to, I don't want to
I don't want to let you know how much I want you
Don't come near me, I don't trust you
I don't trust the way you thrill me when I touch you

I was happy free and easy, I could go around 
And do the things that please me
I don't want to get tied down with a girl like you
I don't want to ... love you, but I do

I was happy free and easy, I could go around 
And do the things that please me
I don't want to get tied down with a girl like you
I don't want to ... love you, but I do
I don't want to love you, but I do

Written by Spielman and Tarre



I Feel So Bad

Feel so bad
Like a ball game on a rainy day
Feel so bad
Like a ball game on a rainy day
Yes' I got my rain check
Shake my head and walk away

Oooo-people that's the way I feel
Oooo-people that's the way I feel
Sometimes I think I want
Then again I think I don't
Sometimes I want to stay here
Then again I want to leave here
Then again I want to stay
Yes, I got my train fare
Pack my grip and ride away

Oooo-people that's the way I feel
Oooo-people that's the way I feel
Sometimes I think I want
Then again I think I don't

I Feel So Bad



I Feel That I've Known You Forever

Your lips, your eyes, your soft sweet sights
I feel that I've known you forever
Your style, your touch, you're just too much
I feel that I've known you forever

I know that this never happened to me
Don't have to see anymore than I see
Your face so rare, beyond compare
I feel that I've known you forever
And ever and ever

Written by Pomus and Jeffrys



If Every Day Was Christmas

I hear the bells
Saying Christmas is near
They ring out to tell the world
That this is the season of cheer

I hear a choir
Singing sweetly somewhere
And a glow fills my heart
I'm at peace with the world
As the sound of their singing fills the air

Oh why can't every day be like Christmas
Why can't that feeling go on endlessly
For if everyday could be just like Christmas
What a wonderful world this would be

I hear a child
Telling Santa what to bring
And the smile upon his tiny face
Is worth more to me than anything

Written by Red West



If I Can Dream

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

We're lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah

Written by Brown



If I Get Home On Christmas Day

If I get home on Christmas day
I won't need soft words to say
I'll miss you and I can stay a while
You'll see it in my eyes and when I smile

If I get home before midnight
While you're still sleeping tight
I'll take you in my arms and there you'll stay
If I get home on Christmas day

Writing letters everyday
Never really seem to say
The way I feel deep in this heart of mine
Thought I'm half a world away
If we're patient and we pray
Know I'll get my chance with you this time

If I get home on Christmas day
I won't need soft words to say
I'll miss you and I can stay a while
You'll see it in my eyes and when I smile

If I get home before midnight
While you're still sleeping tight
I'll take you in my arms and there you'll stay
If I get home on Christmas day
I'll take you in my arms and there you'll stay
If I get home on Christmas day

Written by MaCaulay



If I Loved You

If I loved you
Words wouldn't come in an easy way
Round in circles I'd go
Only to tell you
But afraid and shy
I let my golden chances pass me by

Soon you'll leave me
Ought (?) you would go in a misty day
Never, never let you know
I love you eternally

Written by Rodgers and Hammerstein



If I'm A Fool

If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be
They're saying I am just your clown and any fool could see
That you're just having fun and you're not in love with me
The things they're saying may be true, but there's something they can't see
If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be

If I'm a dreamer, let me dream. If I'm your clown I'll steal the show
If things are not the way they seem, please don't ever let me know
If I am blind it's because I just don't want to see
If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be

If I'm a dreamer, let me dream. If I'm your clown I'll steal the show
If things are not the way they seem, please don't ever let me know
If I am blind it's because I just don't want to see
If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be
If I'm a fool for loving you then that's just what I want to be
If I'm a fool for loving you

Written by Stan Keller



If I Were You

The sandman comes to my house late each night
But it's way in the morning before he turns out my life
It's times like this my darling I can see
If I were you I'd know that I love me

The great snowman I've been called by all
But it looks like this time I'm gonna fall
It's times like this my darling I can see
Oooh If I were you I'd know that I love me

Wind and rain and storm closin' in on me
I've walked the streets alone with my self sympathy
Can you hear me saying hopefully
Oooh If I were you I'd know that I love me

Wind and rain and storm closin' in on me
I've walked the streets alone with my self sympathy
Can you hear me saying hopefully
If I were you I'd know that I love me
Oooh If I were you I'd know that I love me
If I were you I'd know that I love me

Written by Nelson



I Forgot To Remember To Forget

I forgot to remember to forget her,
I can't seem to get her off my mind.
I thought I'd never miss her,
But I found out somehow
I think about her almost all the time.
The day she went away
I made myself a promise
That I'd soon forget we ever met.
But something sure is wrong,
'Cause I'm so blue and lonely.
I forgot to remember to forget.

The day she went away
I made myself a promise
That I'd soon forget we ever met,
Well, but something sure is wrong,
'Cause I'm so blue and lonely.
I forgot to remember to forget.

Written by Dottie Rambo

He left the splendor of heaven
Knowing His destiny
Was the lonely hill of Golgotha
There to lay down His life for me

And if that isn't love
Then the ocean is dry
There's no stars in the sky
And the little sparrows can't fly
Yeah if that isn't love
Then heaven's a myth
There's no feeling like this
If that isn't love

Even in death He remembered
The thief hanging by His side
Then he spoke of love and compassion
And He took him to paradise

And if that isn't love
Then the ocean is dry
There's no stars in the sky
And the little sparrows can't fly
Yeah if that isn't love
Then heaven's a myth
There's no feeling like this
If that isn't love It's got to be love

Written by Rambo



If The Lord Wasn't Walking By My Side

I don't know just what Iíd do
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side
When I was drifting (when I was drifting on the sea of a despair)
and I was wandering (I was wandering if Jehovah's up there) 
When Jesus found me,(Jesus found me in my sinful life)
he heard me praying (he heard me praying on my knees at night)
Now Iím singing (Now I'm singing this happy song)
because Iím happy (because I'm happy as I go along)
And I don't know (I don't know) just what Iíd do
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side
What would I do, (What would I do when a tear fills my eyes)
what would I do (What would I do when it's my time to die)
Well Iíd be lonely, discouraged
Burdened on the way
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day

Iíd be so friendless (I'd be friendless all alone and blue)
and I'd be helpless (I'd be helpless, wouldn't know what to do)
And I don't know (I don't know) just what Iíd do
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side

(What would I do) What would I do when the tears fill my eyes
(What would I do) What would I do when it's my time to die
(I'd be lonely, discouraged, burdened on the way)
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day

Iíd be so friendless, (I'd be friendless all alone and blue)
I'd be so helpless (I'd be helpless, wouldn't know what to do)
And I don't know (I don't know) just what Iíd do
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day

If the Lord (wasn't walking) wasn't walking by my side
(wasn't walking by my side) 

Written by Henry Slaughter



If We Never Meet Again

Soon we'll come to the end of life's journey
And perhaps never meet anymore
Till we gather in heaven's bright city
Far away on that beautiful shore

If we never meet again this side of heaven
As we struggle through this world and its strife
There's another meeting place somewhere in heaven
By the side of the river of life

Where the charming roses bloom forever
And where separations come no more
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I will meet you on that beautiful shore

Written by Albert Brumley



If You Don't Come Back

Well the car was gone and you were gone
And I almost lost my mind.
If you don't come back (If you don't come back)
Yeah! if you don't come back today (If you don't come back today)
You can call up the people at the crazy house
And take this crazy man away

(He threw himself off a gas stone wall) 
(He tore his clothes out the door) 
I ran out on the street in my stockinged feet
Tell the police I've been robbed
If you don't come back (If you don't come back)
Mmm if you don't come back today (If you don't come back today)
Well you can call up the people at the crazy house
And take this crazy man away

Mrs. Brown's been talking about me
To the people across the street
She said (said (I cooked that boy a pot full of stew,
But the poor thing just won't eat).) 

If you don't come back (If you don't come back)
Yeah! If you don't come back today (If you don't come back today)
You can call up the people at the crazy house
And take this crazy man away

If You Love Me

You came when I was happy in your sunshine
I grew to love you more each passing day
Before too long Iíd filled my world around you
Yeah and I prayed you loved enough of me to stay

If you love me let me know
If you don't let me go
I can't take another minute of the day without you near
If you love me let it be
If you don't set me free
Take the chains away that keep me loving you

The arms that open wide to hold me closer
The hands that run their fingers through my hair
The smile that says hello it's good to see you
Any time I turn around and find you there

It's this and so much more that makes me love you
What else can I do to make you see 
You know you'll have whatever's mine to give you
Yeah but a love affair for one it can never be

If you love me let me know
If you don't let me go
I can't take another minute of the day without you near
If you love me let it be
If you don't set me free
Take the chains away that keep me loving you

Take the chains away that keep me loving you

Written by Rostill



If You Talk In Your Sleep

I know you're a lonely woman and I love you
But someone else is waiting and he owns you
If he should ever wake up, make sure that your story is straight love
If you talk in your sleep don't mention my name
And if you walk in your sleep forget where you came

Walking every night here in the shadows
So afraid that sometime he may follow
There's always the chance he'll find us
I don't need to remind you
If you talk in your sleep don't mention my name
If you walk in your sleep forget where you came

Love is so much sweeter when it's borrowed
I'll feel a little easier tomorrow
Don't give our secret away, be careful what you say
If you talk in your sleep don't mention my name
If you walk in your sleep forget where you came

Forget where you came, now
Forget where you came
Don't mention my name
Don't mention my name
Forget where you came

Written by Christopher and West



If You Think I Don't Need You

If you think I don't need you
Then take a look in my eyes
Maybe these ain't raindrops
Falling out of the sky
Since you been gone
I've been so alone
If you think I don't need you
Then baby you're wrong

If you think I don't love you
What could I do to prove to you baby
My love is true
I sing the same old song
Since you've been gone
If you think I don't love you
Then baby you're wrong

My life ain't been the same since you left me
I ain't had a wink of sleep in seven days
I don't know what to do I'm going crazy
I just walk the floor at night and call your name

If you think I don't do right
I'll change my ways
I'll do like you want me to, I'll be your slave
Since you been gone
I've been so alone
If you think I don't need you
Well baby you're wrong

I Got A Feelin' In My Body

When Moses walked the children out of Egypt land
Said now don't you worry, we're in the Lord's hands
He's gonna walk beside us, the time is comin' near
He's gonna wash away all our misery and our fear

I got a feelin' in my body 
This will be our lucky day
We'll be releasing all our sorrow
Leave it layin' along the way

When Daniel faced the lion there wasn't any doubt
You got to be like Daniel and the Lord will help us out

I got a feelin' in my body 
This will be our lucky day
We'll be releasing all our sorrow
Leave it layin' along the way

Won't you lift your eyes up children
Lift them to the sky
Heaven stands before you, gates are open wide
Shelter for the weary, comfort for the weak 
We'll leave the devil's evil, sweatin' on the street

I gotta, I gotta, I gotta
I got a feelin' in my body 
This will be our lucky day
We'll be releasing all our sorrow
Leave it layin' along the way

Won't you lift your eyes up children
Lift them to the sky
Heaven stands before you, gates are open wide
Shelter for the weary, comfort for the weak 
Leave the devils evil, sweatin' on the street

I gotta, I gotta, I gotta
I got a feelin' in my body 
This will be our lucky day
We'll be releasing all our sorrow
Leave it layin' along the way

I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know right now, I wanna know
Yeah. yeah, I got a feel
I got a feelin' I got a feelin'

I got a feelin' in my body 
This will be our lucky day
We'll be releasing all our sorrow
Leave it layin' along the way

I Got A Woman

Well, I've got a woman
Way cross town
She's good to me oh, yeah
Say. I've got a woman
Way cross town
She's good to me oh, yeah

She's here in the morning,
loving me
Yeah, she's a kind of friend to me

She says she love me early in the morning
Just for me
Oh, yeah you know she loves me
Oh, naturally

She's there to love me both day and night
No groans or fusses, treats me right
Never running in the street
Loving me alone
She knows a woman's place is around home at night

Well, she's my baby
And I'm her loving man

I Got Lucky

Never found a four leaf clover to bring good luck to me
No rabbit's foot no lucky star no magic wishing tree
But I got lucky, yes I got lucky 
When I found you, oh yeah!

Got no rainbow around my shoulder, no horseshoe on my door
But I got you to hold me tight and who could ask for more
Oh I got lucky, yes I got lucky 
When I found you, 

I always walk around with all my fingers crossed
I'm afraid the love I found just might get lost
So won't you tell me that you love me, hurry up and name the day
And then I'll know that my good luck is really here to stay
Oh I got lucky, yes I got lucky 
When I found you

I always walk around with all my fingers crossed
I'm afraid the love I found just might get lost
So won't you tell me that you love me, hurry up and name the day
And then I'll know that my good luck is really here to stay
Oh I got lucky, yes I got lucky 
When I found you
Oh I got lucky, yes I got lucky 
When I found you

I Got Stung

Holy smoke
A land sakes alive!
I never thought this could happen to me

Mm, yeah! Mm, yeah!

I got stung by a sweet honey bee
Oh, what a feeling come over me
It started in my eyes
Crept up to my head
Flew to my heart
Till I was stung dead
I'm done, uh-uh

She had all that I wanted and more
And I've seen honey bees before
Started buzzin' in my ear
Buzzin' in my brain
Got stung all over
But I feel no pain
I'm done, uh-uh
I got stung!

Now, don't think I'm complainin'
I'm might pleased we met
'Cause you gimme just one little peck
On the back of my neck
And I break out in a cold cold sweat
If I live to a hundred and two
I won't let nobody sting me but you
I'll be buzzin' 'round your hive
Ev'ry day at five
And I'm never gonna leave once I arrive
'Cause I'm done
Uh-uh, I got stung!

Won't you say which way you're gonna go
I gotta know, gotta know, gotta know

Nine and nine make fourteen, four and four make nine
The clock is strikin' thirteen I think I lost my mind
You know it's gettin' aggravatin'
How long can I keep waitin'
Tell me if you love me yes or no,
I gotta know, gotta know, gotta know

Oh, how much I need you
Have pity on this heart of mine
Well, if you need and want me too,
I'll be your one and only till the end of time

Saw the fortune teller, had my fortune read
She sent me to the doctor, who sent me straight to bed
He said I'm lonesome and I'm lovesick
I've got my mind on lipstick
Will you kiss away my cares and woe?
I gotta know, gotta know, gotta know

Written by Williams and Evans



I, John

Oh well, I, John, he saw might numbers
A way up in the middle of the air
I, John he saw might numbers
Way in the middle of the air
Got to mighty move, John, you saw mighty numbers
Way up in the middle of the air

Well there were three gates in the east
And there were three gates in the west
Three gates in the north
Three gates in the south
And that makes twelve gates to the city all square wide

John, you saw might numbers way up in the middle of the air
Well John declared that he saw a man
He held twelve bright stars in his right hand
Well his eyes flashed fire like the burning sun
Old John got scared and he wanted to run
Well he wanted to run but his feet wouldn't go
Cause he felt the gospel cutting like a two-edged sword
And he heard a voice that said John, you take a look
And read what you see and then you write it in a book

And he saw twelve angels in the east
And there were twelve angels in the west
Twelve angels in the north,
Twelve angels in the south
That's a total of forty-eight angels to the city, four squared wide

Written by William Gaither



I Just Can't Help Believin'

I just can't help believin'
When she smiles up soft and gentle
With a trace of misty morning
And the promise of tomorrow in her eyes

I just can't help believin'
When she's lying close beside me
And my heart beats with the rhythm of her sighs
This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay
For more than just a day

Oh, I just can't help believin'
When she slips her hand in my hand
And it feels so small and helpless
As my fingers fold around it like a glove

I just can't help believin'
When she's whispering her magic
And her tears are shining honey sweet with love
This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay
For more than just a day
For more than just a day

Written by B.J. Thomas



I Just Can't Make It By Myself

I need Jesus to guide me every day
As I'm travellin' along this rough and narrow way
Though afflictions fill my soul
I'm determined to make the goal
I've gotta have Jesus 'cause I just can't make it by myself

Every day I pray (pray) pray (pray)
Pray (pray) pray (pray)
I pray (pray) pray (pray
Pray pray pray
Pray and ask the Lord Jesus
Don't leave me by myself

Every mornin' through the years I pray
You know I've got to have Jesus
I just can't it by myself
By myself

Written by Clara Ward



I'll Be Back

All right

Well I'll be back, Yeah! I'll be back
Like a homesick train on a one-way track
I got to travel and hit the gravel
But I'll be back, Yeah! I'll be back

Yeah! I'll return, I shall return
Don't cool those lips, we're gonna see 'em burn
'Cause I'll be missin' your kinda kissin'
But I'll be back, Yeah, I'll be back

Yeah! There ain't nobody tell me stay or go, oh no
And no-one tells the four winds where to blow-ow-ow
I'll be back, I'm comin' back
Don't throw away that welcome mat
The door I'm hopin' will still be open a teeny weenie crack
To your shack
So keep that love light burnin', I'll be back

Yeah! There ain't nobody tell me stay or go, oh no
And no-one tells the four winds where to blow-ow-ow

Yeah, I'll be back

I'll Be Home For Christmas

I'll be home for Christmas,
You can plan on me.
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents for the tree.

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light leads.
I'll be home for Christmas, oh yes
If only in my dreams.

Written by Kent and Gannon



I'll Be Home On Christmas Day

On the hills of Georgia
Across the plains of Tennessee
I've seen and I've done most everything
That a man can do or see
But if I could only borrow one dream from your sleep
I'd be on that train tomorrow
I'll be home on Christmas day

And so many times before
She left that candle burning
Oh, too many tears fell
My soul fills with yearning
If I had sense at all
I'd just be on my way
Be on that train tomorrow
Be home on Christmas day

Everytime I think about her
All the love I left behind
Memories still linger in my troubled mind
I could set aside my pride
And I'd be on my way
I'd catch that train tomorrow
And be home on Christmas day

If I had any sense at all
I'd just be on my way
I'd catch that train tomorrow
I'd be home on Christmas day
I said I'd catch that train tomorrow
I'd be home on Christmas day

Written by Michael Jarrett



I'll Be There

I'll be there when all your dreams are broken
To answer your unspoken prayer, oh....
When the little things you're doin', ooh, don't turn out right
Don't you worry darlin' I'll be there

There whenever you need to know that there is someone who cares, oh yeah!
So if your new love isn't your true love
Don't you worry darlin', I'll be there

There whenever you need to know that there is someone who cares, oh yeah!
So if your new love isn't your true love
Don't you worry darlin', I'll be there

I'll Hold You In My Heart

I said I'd hold you in my heart 'till I can hold you in my arms
Like you've never been held before 
Well I'll think of you each day and then I'll dream the night away

I'll Never Fall In Love Again

I've been in love so many times
I thought I knew the score
Now you've treated me so wrong
I can't take any more

And it looks like Iím never gonna fall in love again
Fall in love, Iím never gonna fall in love
I mean it, I mean it, fall in love again

I gave my heart so easily, cast aside my pride
When I saw you in his arms baby
I broke up and cried

And it looks like Iím never gonna fall in love again
That's what I'm sayin' Fall in love, No, Iím never gonna fall in love
Please don't make me fall in love again

That's why I, no, Iím never gonna fall in love
Please don't make me, don't make me, fall in love again

I'll Never Know

How many stars are in the sky, I'll never know
What fire lights a firefly, I'll never know

What happens to this heart of mine each time you hold my hand
Sometimes the things we love the most
We never understand
I never thought these eyes would see an angel's glow
What miracle brought you to me, I'll never know

What happens to this heart of mine each time you hold my hand
Sometimes the things we love the most

I'll Never Let You Go

I'll never let you go, little darlin'.
I'm so sorry 'cause I made you cry.
I'll never let you go, 'cause I love you.
So please don't ever say good-bye.

The stars would tumble down beside me,
The moon would hang its head and cry.
My arms would never hold another baby doll
If we should ever say good-bye.

Well, I'll never let you go, 
Because I love you, pretty baby.
I'm so sorry 'cause I made you cry.
I made you cry.
Yeah, I'll never let you go,
'Cause I love you, little baby.
So please don't ever say good-bye.

I'll Never Stand In Your Way

If you found someone new who means more than me to you.
I'd never stand in your way
If you feel we must part, don't let pity rule your heart
I'll never stand in your way
I love you much too much to ever lose you
But what is to be will be and I'll obey
I'll be blue when you go but I'll never let it show.

I'll Remember You

I'll remember you
Long after this endless summer has gone
I'll be lonely oh so lonely
Living only to remember you

I'll remember too
Your voice as soft as the warm summer breeze
Your sweet laughter, mornings after
Ever after, I'll remember you

To your arms someday I'll return to stay
Till then I will remember too
Every bright start we made wishes upon
Love me always, promise always
Oooh, you'll remember too

I'll remember you

I'll Take Love

Some people think that pot of gold
Is all they ever want to hold
But there's a treasure, I think more of
Measure for measure .. I'll take love

Some people think that their success
Is all they need for happiness
But there's a pleasure, I think more of
Measure for measure .. I'll take love

Pound for pound oh yeah and
Ounce for ounce love is all that really counts
So let them have their wealth and fame
Eat caviar and drink champagne
You're all the treasure I'm dreaming of
Measure for measure .. I'll take love

Pound for pound oh yeah and
Ounce for ounce love is all that really counts
So let them have their wealth and fame

I'll take love, I'll take love

I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen

I'll take you home again Kathleen
Across the ocean wild and wide
To where your heart has ever been
Since first you were my bonny bride
The roses all have left your cheek
I watch them fade away and die
Your voice is soft when ere you speak
And tears bedim your lovely eyes
Oh, I will take you home Kathleen
To where your heart shall feel no pain
And when the fields are soft and green
I will take you to your home Kathleen

I Love Only One Girl

Oh, I love only one girl, the one I got my arms around
I love only one girl, one in every town

In Paris there is Mimi, and when the moon is bright
I love to take her walking, along the Seine each night
I kiss her on the left, then I kiss her on the right

Oh, I love only one girl, the one I got my arms around
I love only one girl, one in every town

I'm proud of my Brunhilda, in Frankfurt on the Rhine
Oh she's a lot of woman and all of her is mine
Oh she can lift a Steinway as easy as a stein

Oh, I love only one girl, the one I got my arms around
I love only one girl, one in every town

In Naples there's Maria how she can cook and flirt
You can't beat her lasagna, I eat until I hurt
And then she tops it off with "amore" for dessert

Oh, I love only one girl, the one I got my arms around
I love only one girl, one in every town

I Love You Because

I love you because you understand dear
Every single thing I try to do.
You're always there to lend a helping hand, dear.
I love you most of all because you're you.

No matter what the world may say about me,
I know your love will always see me through.
I love you for the way you never doubt me.
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you.

I love you because, because my heart is ligther
honey everytime, everytime I'm walking by your side
and I love you, yes I love you because the future is a little bit brighter
and the door, the door of my happiness, you open wide

No matter what may be the style or season,
I know your heart will always be true.
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons,
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you

I'm Beginning To Forget You

I'm beginning to forget you
That old heartache is gone
I'm beginning to sleep at night
No more crying 'till dawn
I can hear your name mentioned
And it brings no misery
I'm beginnin to forget you
Like you forgot me

I'm beginning to smile again
After crying for so long
I can hear the tune we loved so well
And it's just another song
I'm so happy that it's over
I'm so thankful to be free
I'm beginnin to forget you
Like you forgot me

I'm Coming Home

Well it's so very hard to have
To leave the one you love
And you get more lonely
With each passing day
It's so lonely just sitting
And dreaming of
That girl thousand miles away

Yes, it's still lonely having
Just her picture here with me
And I know I just can't stand it anymore
I'm gonna leave right now 
and go back where I ought to be
Goin' home to the girl that I adore

Well it's so very hard to have
To leave the one you love
And you get more lonely
With each passing day
It's so lonely just sitting
And dreaming of
That girl thousand miles away

Well, every time I hear 
her sweet voice on the telephone
Then I know I just can't stand it another day
I'm gonna call right back
And tell her that I'm coming home and stay
Call her back and say Iím comin' home and stay
Call her back and say Iím comin' home and stay

I'm Countin' On You

All the words that I let her know
Still could not say
How much I need you so in every way
I hope you will guide me
As only you can do
Hold my hands down beside me
I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you dear
From the dawn of each day
To always come through dear
In your kind lovin' way
If you knew just how deeply
I feel things you do
Then you know how completely
I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you dear
Around the dawn of each day
To always come true, dear
In your kind lovin' way
If you knew just how deeply
I feel things you do
Then you know how completely
I'm counting on you

I Met Her Today

I told you that some day
If you kept on being untrue
Somebody else would come along
And release me from you

You'll be glad to know now
Your fickle world
Can have its own way
For it finally happened
I've met her today

I used to think I just couldn't live
A day without you
In spite of the thousand doubts and tears
That you put me through
All at once I don't care as much for you
I'm sorry to say
For now there's another
I met her today

How I treasured each smile, each kiss
You gave to me now and then
Well, you needn't be kind to me now
Oh no, not ever again

Just when the last bit of pride in me was gone
Someone heard me pray
And sent me my angel
I met her today
I met her today

I'm Falling In Love Tonight

I'm falling in love, tonight
Somehow, I know
The beautiful world tonight
Is sharing, it's glow

When love let me down before
I said I was through
But I'm falling in love tonight
With you

'till you walked by
I laughed and played the game
One last kiss, then goodbye
And out went the flame

But somehow, you've changed me dear
This time, it's true
I'm falling in love tonight
With you

I'm gonna love you more and more in every way
And if you say good-bye

I'm gonna tell my mama tell my papa too
So they'll know exactly what Iím gonna do
And if you say good-bye
Say if you ever even try

I Miss You

Still I recall all the good times together
The love we shared, the fun and the laughter
How I wish you could feel what my heart says tonight dear
I miss you and I wish you were here

Dreams that I had they lay broken in sorrow
The plans I made the hopes for tomorrow
If I could I would tell you I'm lonesome tonight dear
Oh I miss you and I wish you were here

All through the night I will see memories passing
The way you looked the sound of your laughing
How I long for the touch of your hand holding mine dear
Oh I miss you and I wish you were here

Lord, I miss you and I wish you were here

I'm Leavin'

Well I know, if I'd arrived in time to know you
You'd have taken the time to show me
I wouldn't be lonely

Where will I go, who will I have to lie beside me
Is it something that's inside me
I'm so lonely

Tried so hard each time, each time I just can't make it
Feelin' fast vibrations and I just can't take it
Living from day to day, chasing the dream
I'm, I'm leavin

La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la

I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone

Well, you're right, I'm left, she's gone.
You're right, and I'm left all alone.
Well, you tried to tell me so,
But how was I to know 
That she was not the one for me?

You told me all along,
You're right, our love was so wrong.
But now I changed my mind,
Because she broke the ties that bind, 
And I know that she never cared for me.

Well, I thought I knew just what she'd do,
I guess I'm not so smart.
Oh, you tried to tell me along she'd only break my heart.
I'm left, you're right, she's gone.
You're right, and I'm left all alone.

Well, she's gone I know not where,
But now I just don't care.
For now I'm falling for you.

If you'll forgive me now,
I'll make it up somehow.
So happy we will be,
In a home just for three,
And I'll soon forget her,
Now I know.

Well, I thought I knew just what she'd do,
I guess I'm not so smart.
You tried to tell me all along,
She'd only break my heart.

Well, you're right, I'm left, she's gone.
You're right, and I'm left all alone.
Well, she's gone, I know not where,
But now I just don't care,
For now I've fallen for you.

Means your true lovin' daddy ain't acomin' back
'Cause he's movin on, he's rollin on
You were flyin to high for my little ol' sky

But you just wouldn't listen or pay me no mind
And now I'm movin' on, I'm rollin' on

Move on baby, move on

Well I'm through with you, too bad you're blue
I said move on, I said move on
I said move on, I said move on

I'm Not The Marrying Kind

Show me a girl with a dimple on her cheek
Butter melts in her mouth
When she opens it to speak
Show me a girl who is acting so refined
And I'll show you a girl with one thing on her mind

So I say "You know what?" She says "What?"
I say "What? Oh I'm not the marrying kind
For you've got what it takes
And it takes what you've got
But I'm not the marrying kind
Don't kiss me, don't claw me
Don't pet me, don't paw me
And I won't leave my freedom behind"

So I say "You know what?" She says "What?"
I say "What? Oh I'm not the marrying kind.
You know what?" She says "What?"
"Thanks a lot, but I'm not the marrying kind
Don't kiss me, don't claw me
Don't pet me, don't paw me
And I won't leave my freedom behind"

So I say "You know what?" She says "What?"
I say "What? Oh I'm not the marrying kind 
I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not
Now you've got what I'm not
I'm not the marrying kind
Oh I'm not the marrying kind
Oh I'm not the marrying kind

I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

Hear that lonesome winter bird
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
I'm so lonesome I could cry

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves began to die
That means he's lost the will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry
I'm so lonesome I could cry

Written by Williams



I'm With A Crowd But Oh So Alone

I'm with a crowd but oh so alone
I still have the picture you sent me
And you signed it with love you recall
And the one of me that you wanted
Is now hanging face to the wall
At night I'm never alone
I'm afraid that I'll weaken and phone
And I'm afraid that you will be gone
I'm with a crowd but oh so alone

And as the years roll along
Your joy and tears Iíll gladly share
And when things go wrong dear
Just hold out your hand and Iíll be there
With every beat of my heart
With every breath that I take
Now and forever, sweetheart, Iím yours

Indescribably Blue

Our friends all ask me
The last time I saw you
And I smile and tell them
It's been a day or two

There's no way to explain it
The way that I miss you
And my love, you have left me
Indescribably blue

I talk to your picture
My fav'rite one of you
I wish that you were here with me
But what good will it do

Having no way to tell you
The pain that Iíve been through
Oh, my love, you have left me
Indescribably blue
Yes, my love, you have left me
Indescribably blue

I Need Somebody To Lean On

I need somebody to lean on
I need somebody to tell my troubles to
No use denying, I'm close to cryin'
But what good, tell me what good would my crying do

I need somebody to help me
Help me forget all those worries on my mind
And when I'm lonely, if someone would only
Want to be sweet and kind

I need somebody, won't that somebody
Please, please listen to my plea
Need that somebody, won't that somebody
Come running to me

I need somebody to lean on
I'm tired of being unhappy and so blue
If she came I would hold her 'cause I need that shoulder
To lean on, yes I really do
I need somebody, and maybe that somebody is you

I Need You So

I need you so
To keep me happy

Around me tightly
Yes, I miss them nightly

When the day is done
I miss you so
I lie and wait
To hear you knock on the door

When you leave me
I try not to worry
Come back in a hurry
'Cause I need you so

Inherit The Wind

Baby don't fall in love with me
I'll only bring you grief
Baby, don't set your heart on me
I'll only have to leave

'Cause the north wind flows through my veins
Like my dad there's a dream in my brain
In the morning I'll have to leave again
That's how it is when you inherit the wind
Inherit the wind

Daddy, he was a traveling man
I hardly knew his face
Momma, she cried for him at night
He never stayed in one place

'Cause the north wind flows through my veins
Like my dad there's a dream in my brain
In the morning I'll have to leave again
That's how it is when you inherit the wind
Inherit the wind

Oh I can't give you the love you need
I just won't be here that long
But if you still want me here tonight
I'll love you till the break of dawn

'Cause the north wind flows through my veins
Like my dad there's a dream in my brain
In the morning I'll have to leave again
That's how it is when you inherit the wind
Inherit the wind
Inherit the wind, inherit the wind

Written by Eddie Rabbitt



In My Father's House

In my father's house are many mansions
If it were not true he would have told me so
He has gone away to live in that bright city
He's preparing me a mansion there I know

Jesus died upon the cross to bear my sorrow
Freely died that souls like you might have new life
But I know that soon there'll come a bright tomorrow
When the world will all be free from sin and strife

(Do not shun the saviors love, from up in glory)
(Or you won't be there to sing the gospel story)
In my father's house are many mansions
If you're true then to this land you'll surely go

Arranged by Elvis Presley



In My Way

I may not be here tomorrow
But I'm close beside you today
So lie to me a little, say you love me a lot
And I'll be true to you in my way

Love never goes on forever
At least that's what wise men all say
So smile when you kiss me, tomorrow you may cry
But I'll be true to you in my way
Yes I'll be true to you in my way

Written by Weisman and Wise



In The Garden

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The song of God discloses

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

He speaks and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

Written by Miles



In The Ghetto

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
it's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, don't you understand
the child needs a helping hand
or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
are we too blind to see,
do we simply turn our heads
and look the other way

Well the world turns
and a hungry little boy with a runny nose
plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
so he starts to roam the streets at night
and he learns how to steal
and he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
a young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
tries to run, but he don't get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

As her young man dies,
on a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
another little baby child is born
In the ghetto

Written by Scott Davis



In Your Arms

Oh, the way I feel tonight
You better wrap me up good and tight
In your arms
In your arms

Just like a bee in a honeycomb
I'm gonna make myself right at home
In your arms
In your arms

Well, it don't take much to keep me satisfied
Just a little bit of lovin' that's bonafide
In your arms keep me tangled up all the time
Like a kitten with a ball of twine

Yeah baby, that's where I want to stay
For the rest of my natural days
In your arms
In your arms

Written by Schroeder and Gold



I Really Don't Want To Know

Oh how many arms have held you
And hated to let you go
How many, oh how many, I wonder
But I really don't want, I don't wanna know

Oh how many lips have kissed you
And set, set your soul aglow, yes they did
How many, oh how many, I wonder, yes I do
But I really don't want to know

So always make, make me wonder
And always make, make me guess
And even, you know even if I ask you
Oh darling oh don't you, don't confess

Just let it, let it remain your secret
Oh for darling, darling I love you so
No wonder, yeah no wonder, I wonder
Mmm, 'cause I really don't want, I don't wanna know

I Shall Be Released

I see my light I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now I shall be released

From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now I shall be released

Written by Bob Dylan



I Shall Not Be Moved

Well Lord I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's growin' in the meadow (down by the water)
I shall not be moved

I'm on my way to glory land and I shall not be moved
On my way to glory land I will not be moved
I'm like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Well I'm on my way to glory land and I shall not be moved
On my way to glory land I shall not be moved
I'm like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Oh well
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Is It So Strange

Oh, if you tell a lie
You know that I'll forgive you
Though you say our love is just a game
And when you hear my name
You'll say I'm from a strange world
But is it so strange to be in love with you

Is it so strange
That I love you more than all the world
Is it so strange
I have no eyes for any other girl

Oh won't you take me back
And say that you still love me
To waste a love like ours would be a sin
Let us kiss again
Let me hold you near
And take me from this strange world
That I'm living in

Written by Faron Young



Island Of Love

Kauai, island of love
Lovely princess of the islands
Kauai, island of love
Listen, can't you hear her calling

Aloha welcome my love
Her palmtrees gently do the hula
While her slaves, the waves
Rush in to kiss her shores

Heaven is another name for
Kauai, island of love

Written by Tepper and Bennett



I Slipped, I Stumbled, I Fell

I look at you and wham, I'm head over heels
I guess that love is a banana peel
I feel so bad and yet I'm feeling so well
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

One crazy kiss and bam, I head for the skies
I guess that love is like a cake of ice
You skate along but then you can never tell
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

I never thought I'd get tricked 
By you sweet talking lies
You've got a bag of tricks
And when you get busy
I got dazzled and dizzy
I fell like a ton of bricks

My knees are weak, my head is spinning around
I guess that love has turned me upside down
Thought I'd get hurt, but gee, it's turning out well
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

Written by Wise and Weisman



It Ain't No Big Thing, But It's Growing

Your losing interest in me and it's showin'
It ain't no big thing but it's growin'
The pain of heartbreak I've just started knowin'
Well, it ain't no big thing but it's growin'

Every day the hurt grows bigger than before
But I'll pretend I don't know this
But If I can hold you one day more
You've got the look of someone who's goin'
You're gonna leave me and it's showin'
A little tear I can feel start to flow
It ain't no big thing but it's growin'

Well every day the hurt grows bigger than before 
But I'll pretend I don't know this
Well, if I can hold you one day more
You've got the look of someone who's goin'
Well, you're gonna leave me and it's showin'
A little tear I can feel start to flow
Well it ain't no big thing but it's growing
No, it ain't no big thing but it's growing

It Feels So Right

Step in these arms, where you belong
It feels so right, so right
How can it be wrong?

There's something in the way you kiss
That makes me want to hold you tight
I know that nothing can't be wrong
that feels so right.

Each time we touch, you thrill me so
It means so much, so much
I can't let you go

This isn't only for tonight
We're gonna love our whole life long
'Cause baby, if it feels so right
How can it be wrong?

Written by Wise and Weisman



I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here

No-one's in a hurry
No-one seems to worry
Why they're all so happy is very clear
Every day siesta, every night fiesta
I think I'm gonna like it here

All this lovely scenery
There's more to it than greenery
I know a chance for romance is always near
Mission bells are ringing, everybody's singing
I think I'm gonna like it hear

The sound of laughter from every doorway
Sweet music floating across the square
It seems to say things are going better
Your troubles like bubbles will soon disappear in the air

Down to my last peso, but I'm not afraid to say so
I feel just like a brave, Spanish cavalier
I don't care where we go, so lead on" mi amigo"
I think I'm gonna like it here

Melodias.....lapieras

Your troubles like bubbles will soon disappear in the air

Down to my last peso, but I'm not afraid to say so
I feel just like a brave, Spanish cavalier
I don't care where we go, so lead on" mi amigo"
I think I'm gonna like it here

Written by Robertson and Blair



It Hurts me

It hurts me to see him treat you the way he does
It hurts me to see sit and cry
When I know I could be so true
If I had someone like you
It hurts me to see those tears in your eyes

The whole town is talking, they're callin' you a fool
For listening to his same old lies
And when I know I could be so true
If I had someone like you
It hurts me to see the way he makes you cry

You love him too much, you're too blind to see
He's only playing a game
But he's never loved you
He never will
And darling, don't you know he will never change

Oh, I know he never will set you free
Because he's just that kind of guy
But if you ever tell him you're through
I'll be waiting for you
Waiting to hold you so tight
Waiting to kiss you goodnight
Yes, darling, if I had someone like you

Written by Byers and Daniel



It Is No Secret

The chimes of time ring out the news,
Another day is through.
Someone slipped and fell.
Was that someone you?

You may have longed for added strength,
Your courage to renew.
Do not be disheartened,
For I have news for you.

It is no secret what God can do.
What He's done for others, He'll do for you.
With arms wide open, He'll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do. 

There is no night for in His light
You never walk alone.
Always feel at home,
Wherever you may go.

There is no power can conquer you
While God is on your side.
Take Him at His promise,
Don't run away and hide.

It is no secret what God can do.
What He's done for others, He'll do for you.
With arms wide open, He'll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.

It Keeps Right on A-Hurtin

I cry myself to sleep each night
Wishing I could hold you tight
Life seems so empty since you went away
And the pillow where you lay your head
Now holds my empty dreams instead
And it keeps right on a-hurtin'
Since you're gone

It keeps right on a'hurtin every minute of the day
Every hour you're away I feel so lonely
And I can't help it, I don't think I can go on
And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone

They say a man ain't supposed to cry
But when I see you passing by
My heart breaks down and cries a million tears
The pillow where you lay your head
Now holds my empty dreams instead
And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone

It keeps right on a'hurtin every minute of the day
Every hour you're away I feel so lonely
And I can't help it, I don't think I can go on
And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone
Yes, it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone

It's A Matter Of Time

It's a matter of time before I go back there
A matter of time before I go home

I have been way from her now for a long time
And I've lived a life I thought that it should be
It's a long, long way from now to maybe sometime
And the waiting round is really killing me

It's a matter of time before I go back there
A matter of time oh Lord, before I go home
It's a long way I know and the goin' ain't easy
She'll see me again it's a matter of time

I think I'll take a train right early in the morning
Just to see how far I get along the way
But the trains don't run too often only sometimes
So I guess I'd better wait another day

It's a matter of time before I go back there
A matter of time before I go home
It's a long way I know and the goin' ain't easy
She'll see me again, it's just a matter of time
She'll see me I know it's a matter of time

It's A Sin

It's a sin, my darling
How I love you
Because I know
Our love could never be

It's a sin
To keep this memory of you
When silence proves
That you've forgotten me

The dreams I built for us
Has tumbled
Each promise broken
Like my heart

It's a sin, my darling
How I love you
So much in love
And yet so far apart

I'm sure you're happy with another
Who shares the love I cannot win
Why pretend that I can live without you
When deep inside I know that it's a sin

Written by Rose and Turner



It's A Wonderful World

Young as a circus parade, it's a wonderful world
Pretty as pink lemonade, it's a wonderful world
Life is a carnival, live it for all your worth
You are the star of the greatest show on earth

A rainbow colored balloon's dancing high overhead
It's everyone's oyster, step up get your pearl
It's a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful world

Come on kids from eight to eighty
Hey there mister bring your lady
There's a big show on the inside
It's carnival time

Popcorn, peanuts and cotton candy
Pink lemonade that's dan-dan-dandy
Be a big shot for a dollar
It's carnival time

Roustabouts are roustabout'n
And there's happy shouts, children shoutin
If you've got doubts quit your doubtin'
There's thrills, it's spice
It's cheap at half the price
So don't be bashful, buy a ticket
Get the habit never kick it
Hit the band there, don't just stand there
It's carnival time

It's Diff'rent Now

Look at you and tell myself
How wonderful you are
You're so different now
To me you're much more wonderful, more wonderful by far
Yes, you're different now
There's more to love than holding hands and stealing kisses
No-one else around
There's the good times and the bad
There's the ups and downs we've had
But it's different now I'm so glad I still have you

There's always something new to see
I look at you, you look at me
And we're so different now
Love gets better every day 'n in some peculiar way
It's always different now
If we ever say goodbye, you'd be lost
And so would I, what's the difference now between us
Love just for a day, and a love that's here to stay
That's the difference now, the difference now

It's Easy For You

You may not mind that it's over
But I've a different point of view
Even though I am shattered
It's easy for you

You don't have to face the music
You don't have to face the crowd
Just go back where you came from
You ain't even proud

I had a wife and I had children
I threw them all away
And now you tell me, you dare to tell me
I should go back to them
What do you think I should say

I found it hard to leave them
Saddest thing I ever had to do
My problems haven't started
And it's easy for you

I had a wife and I had children
I threw them all away
And now you tell me, you dare to tell me
I should go back to them
What do you think, what on earth do you think I should say

If you ever tire of the good life
Call me in a year or two
I've got no choice, I'll forgive you
'Cause it's easy for you

You only have to call me, it's easy for you
You only have to call me, it's easy for you

Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and T. Wright



It's Impossible

It's impossible to tell the sun to leave the sky,
It's just impossible.
It's impossible to ask a baby not to cry,
It's just impossible.
Can I hold you closer to me
And not feel you going through me,
But the second that I never think of you?
Oh, how impossible.

Can the ocean keep from rushing to the shore?
It's just impossible.
If I had you could I ever ask for more?
It's just impossible.
And tomorrow, should you ask me for the world
Somehow I'd get it, I would sell my very soul
And not regret it for to live without your love
Is just impossible

Can the ocean keep from rushing to the shore?
It's just impossible.
If I had you could I ever ask for more?
It's just impossible.
And tomorrow, should you ask me for the world
Somehow I'd get it, I would sell my very soul
And not regret it for to live without your love
Is just impossible
Oh impossible,
Impossible.
Impossible

It's Midnight

Maybe it's too late. Sometimes I even hate myself for loving you
Trying to be strong then nighttime comes along and I start loving you
Wanting you. Where is all my selfcontrol I'm burning way down in my soul
And needing you, and wishing I could be the man, I try to
Hating me for wanting you to be with you knowing you don't love me like you used to
But it's midnight, Ohh and I miss you

It's getting late and I know that's when I am weak
Funny how things have a way of looking so much brighter in the day light
I ought to go to bed to try and straighten out my head and just forget you
Oh but it's midnight yes and I miss you 

It's getting late and I know that's when I am weak
Funny how things have a way of looking so much brighter in the day light

It's Now Or Never

It's now or never, 
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, 
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late, 
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

When I first saw you 
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured, 
my soul surrendered
I'd spend a lifetime 
waiting for the right time
Now that your near 
the time is here at last.

It's now or never, 
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, 
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late, 
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

Just like a willow, 
we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love 
and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me, 
let your arms invite me
For who knows when 
we'll meet again this way

It's now or never, 
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, 
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late, 
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

It's Only Love

I see the the sunlight in her hair
I feel the warm smile that she wears
She has no recipe for love
But I just can't get enough

From the distance of my mind
Clock that's ringing says it's time
Wake up to my destiny
It's time to face reality 

It's only love that I feel inside
But I'll get by somehow
It's only love, there must be something else for me girl

I tell myself that it's not real
There's nothing left for me to feel
I'll just be going on my way
Tomorrow brings another day

Only love that I feel inside
But I've got to be strong
My mind's made up, it's only love

But I know I'll get by, take my heart and my pride 
And just throw it aside
It's only love

It's only love, it's only love, it's only love
It's only love
It's only love

It's Over

If time were not a moving thing
And I could make it stay
This hour of love we share
Would always be
There'd be no coming day 
To shine a morning light
And make us realize our night is over

When you walk away from me
There is no place to put my hand
Except to shade my eyes against the sun
That rises over the land
I watch you walk away
Somehow I have to let you go
Cause it's over

If you knew just how I really feel
You might return and yet
There are so many times
That people have to love and then forget
Oh there might have been a way somehow
I have to force myself to say
It's over

So I turn my back,
Turn my collar to the wind
Move along in silence
Trying not to think at all
I set my feet before me
Walk the silent street before me
Now it's over

If time were not a moving thing
And I could make you stay
This hour of love we share
Would always be
There'd be no coming day 
To shine a morning light
And make us realize our night is over

It's over

It's Still Here

The day you said we'd never part
You turned around and broke my heart
You had the nerve to tell me I would soon forget
Now you've been gone away one year
And I have not forgotten dear
The love I had for you so long
Is still here 
Wow-oh

It's here, still here
Because my heart cannot believe
We're really through
And though you said we'd never part
You turned around and broke my heart
The love I had for you so long
Is still here

It's here, still here
Because my heart cannot believe
We're really through
Now you've been gone away one year
And I have not forgotten dear
The love I had for you so long

You turned around and broke my heart
The love I had for you so long
Is still here
Oh yeah

It's Your Baby, You Rock It

You offered me a penny for my thoughts
And I told you then that woman won't stay caught
But you turned and loved her anyway
She broke your heart and all Iíve got to say

It's your baby, you rock it
It's your heartache, you bought it
You made the bed your sleeping in
And Iím tired of hearing about it friend
It's your baby you, rock it

Well you cried upon my shoulder like a baby
I'm sorry 'bout your troubles and your lady
But she done you like she done me
And Iíve used up all my sympathy
It's your baby you, rock it

It's your baby, you rock it
It's your heartache, you bought it
You made the bed your sleeping in
And Iím tired of hearing about it friend
It's your baby you, rock it

It Won't Be Long

The shooting stars are coming out of your eyes
They point the way, the way to paradise
I got a funny feeling, I can't be wrong
It won't be long until the sparks will fly
It won't be long

I hear a buzz, buzz around in my brain
But what it does, is bound to drive me insane
At a time like this I must be strong
It won't be long till the sky falls down
It won't be long

Love has taught me plenty, I'm still learning more
Anything worth having is worth the waiting for
Here I go, I'm on a one way trip
Look out below because I'm about to flip
I tell you when these lips get to that kiss

It won't be long until we're out of this world
It won't be long

Love has taught me plenty, I'm still learning more
Anything worth having is worth the waiting for
Here I go, I'm on a one way trip
Look out below because I'm about to flip
I tell you when these lips get to that kiss

It Won't Seem Like Christmas

Oh, it won't seem like Christmas, oh, without you
Far too many miles are between
But if I get the one thing I'm waiting for
Well then I'll se you tonight in my dreams

Seems a long time since we've been together
It was just about to this time of the year
Looks like it's gonna be snowy weather
How I wish that you could be here

But it won't seem like Christmas, oh, without you
Far too many miles are between
But if I get the one thing that I'm wishing for
Then I'll see you tonight in my dreams

In the distance I hear sleigh bells ringing
The holly is so pretty this year
And the carol that somebody's singing
Reminds me of our Christmas last year

I've Got A Thing About You Baby

I've got something to tell you
That I think you ought to know
That my eyes are on you baby 
Since a long time ago
And now I fin'ly got the nerve
And I'm gonna make my move
Now don't you try to turn me off
Cause it's gonna be hard to do

I've got a thing about you baby
Ain't nothing I can do
I've got a thing about you baby
A thing about lovin' you

Ain't it just like a woman
When she knows she's got a man
She'll wring you out and turn you 'bout
In the palm of her hand
And then she starts to thinkin'
Then maybe she's put you in a blind
She'll give you just a little lovin'
It'll drive you out of your mind

I've got a thing about you baby
Ain't nothing you can do
I've got a thing about you baby
A thing about lovin' you

I've Got Confidence

When trouble is in my way
I can't tell the night from day
I toss from side to side
Like a ship on a raging tide
I don't worry and I don't fret
God has never failed me yet
Troubles comin' from time to time
But that's all right, 'cause I'm not the worrying kind

Because I, I've got confidence,
God is gonna see me through
No matter what the case may be
I know He's gonna fix it for me

Job was so sick so long
Till the flesh fell from his bones
His wife, cattle and children,
Everything that he had was gone
But Job he never dispaired
He knew that God still cared
Sleepless days and sleepless nights
Job said honey that's all right

'Cause I've got confidence
God is gonna see me through
No matter what the case may be
I know He's gonna fix it for me

Some folks wonder how I smile
Even though I'm going to trial
How can I have song
Everything is going wrong
I don't worry and I don't fret
God has never failed me yet

Trouble's coming from time to time
That's all right, I'm not the worrying kind
'Cause I've got confidence

I've Got To Find My Baby

I've got to find my baby
I wonder where can she be
Has anybody seen her
Send her back to me

She left me here all alone
And I ain't had no lovin' 
Since my baby's been gone
My baby's gone

I've gotta find my baby
I gotta hold her tight and tell her I love her
Tell her everything's all right
So I'll keep searching
All night long
'Cause I ain't had no lovin' 
Since my baby's been gone
My baby's gone 

I've gotta find my baby
I've gotta find my baby
Gotta find my baby

I've Lost You

Lying by your side I watch you sleeping
And in your face the sweetness of a child
Murmuring the dreams you won't recapture
Though it will haunt the corners of you mind

Who can tell when summer turns to autumn
And who can point the moment love grows cold
Softly happening the joy is over
Though why it's gone neither of us know

Oh, I've lost you yes, I've lost you
I can't reach you anymore 
We ought to talk it over now
But reason can't stand in for feeling

Six o'clock the baby will be crying
And you will stumble, sleepy, to the door
In the chill and sun gray of the morning
We play the parts that we have learned to well

Written by Howard and Blaikly



I Want To Be Free

There's no joy in my heart, 
only sorrow
And I'm sad 
as a man can be
I sit alone in the darkness 
of my lonely room
And this room 
is a prison to me

I look at window 
and what to I see
I see a bird 
way up in the tree
I want to be free free
Free - ee - ee - ee
I want to be free 
like the bird in the tree

What good are my eyes, 
they can't see you
And my arms, 
they can't hold so tight
I have two lips 
that are yearning, 
but they're no good to me
Cause I know I can't kiss you tonight

I look at window 
and what to I see
I see a bird 
way up in the tree
I want to be free free 
Free - ee - ee - ee
I want to be free 
like the bird in the tree
I want to be free 
like the bird in the tree

I Want You, I Need You, I Love You

Hold me close, hold me tight
Make me thrill with delight
Let me know where I stand from the start
I want you, I need you, I love you
With all my heart

Ev'ry time that you're near
All my cares disappear
Darling, you're all that I'm living for
I want you, I need you, I love you
More and more

I thought I could live without romance
Before you came to me
But now I know that
I will go on loving you eternally

Won't you please be my own?
Never leave me alone
'Cause I die ev'ry time we're apart
I want you, I need you, I love you
With all my heart

Written by Kosloff and Mysels



I Want You With Me

When I was little, my mama said to me
"One day you'll find a love to last eternally"
I want you with me everywhere I go
So please don't leave me baby, I love you so

I'll be the ruler of this whole wide world
If you will only say you'll be my girl
I want you with me in everything I do
You know I need you baby, I'm in love with you

There is no mountain that I can't climb
You find the mountain, child, and I'll find the time
I want you with me, with me night and day
Well, you can make me happy baby, don't you go away

I'll swim an ocean with a raging foam
If I know that you'll be there when I come back home
I want you with me, you know I love you so
Well, I want you with me baby, I'll never let you go
Well, I want you with me baby, I'll never let you go

I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago

I saw old pharaohís daughter bring Moses from the water
I'll lick the guy that says it isn't so

I was born about ten thousand years ago
There ain't nothing in this world that I don't know
I saved king Davidís life and he offered me a wife
I said now you're talking business have a chair

Yeah, I was born about ten thousand years ago
Ain't nothing in this world that I don't know
Saw Peter, Paul and Moses playing ring around the roses
I'll lick the guy that says it isn't so

I was born about ten thousand years ago
Ain't nothing in this world that I don't know
I saw old pharaoh's daughter bring Moses from the water
I'll lick the guy that says it isn't so

I was there when old Noah built the ark
And I crawled in the window after dark
I saw Jonah eat the whale and dance with the lion's tale
And I crossed over Canaan on a log

I was born about ten thousand years ago
Ain't nothing in this world that I don't know
I saw old pharaoh's daughter bring Moses from the water
I'll lick the guy that says it isn't so

Yeah, I was born about ten thousand years ago
Ain't nothing in this world that I don't know
Saw Peter, Paul and Moses playing ring around the roses
I'll lick the guy that says it isn't so

And I crawled in the window after dark

Ain't nothing in this world that I don't know

I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water

I was born in Macon Georgia
They kept my daddy over in Macon jail
He told me if you keep your hands clean
You won't hear them bloodhounds on your trail

Well I fell in with bad companions
Robbed a man, oh up in Tennessee
They caught me way up in Nashville
They locked me up and threw away the key

I washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, but they didn't come clean
Tried to do what my daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

Well I asked the judge now when's my time up
He said son, oh you know we won't forget
If you try just to keep your hands clean
We might just make a good man of you yet

Oh I couldn't wait to get my time up
I broke out, broke out of Nashville jail
I just crossed the state-line of Georgia
Well I can hear those bloodhounds on my trail

I washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, but they didn't come clean
Tried to do what my daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

I Was The One

I was the one who taught her to kiss
The way that she kisses you now.
And you know the way she touches your cheek,
Well, I taught her how.

I was the one who taught her to cry
When she wants you under her spell.
The sight of her tears drives you out of your mind,
I taught her so well.

And then one day
I had my love as perfect as could be.
She lived, she loved, she laughed, she cried,
And it was all for me.

I'll never know who taught her to lie.
Now that it's over and done,
Who learned the lesson when she broke my heart?
I was the one.

And then one day
I had my love as perfect as could be.
She lived, she loved, she laughed, she cried,
And it was all for me.

I'll never know who taught her to lie.
Now that it's over and done,
Who learned the lesson when she broke my heart?
I was the one.

I Will Be Home Again

I will be home again
Don't worry dear
I'll be home again
So won't you dry the tear
The promise in your eyes
Will see me through
There'll be brighter skies
When I come back to you

A-a-ah sweetheart
The love you're giving
Thrills my hungry heart
You make my life worth the living
Although we are apart
I will be home again
We'll start anew
Darling until then
Our dreams will have to do

A-a-ah sweetheart
The love you're giving
Thrills my hungry heart
You make my life worth the living
Although we are apart
I will be home again
We'll start anew
Darling until then
Our dreams will have to do

Written by Benjamin and Singer



 

I will be true
No matter what they may say
I will be true
Although you're far far away
Each night I pray
All day I'll say a silent prayer
That when I open my door
I'll find you there
Somehow I feel
That someday we'll meet again
Don't ask me how
It's something I can't explain
Until the day
I give up all hope of you
Assure yourself this I'll do
I will be true

That someday we'll meet again
Don't ask me how
It's something I can't explain
Until the day
I give up all hope of you
Assure yourself this I'll do
I will be true
