Somebody Been Lovin' Her

i know her smile
and what it means
i've smiled like her in all my dreams
there's someone new in my mirror
and it couldn't be clearer
that
somebody been lovin' her

she ties a scarf
around her waist
she paints a rose
upon her face
when you take her walkin'
she'll hear 'em all talkin'
sayin'
somebody been lovin' her

you make my world a reflection of paradise
you make bein' me awfully nice
you were the first one to see
the woman in me

she looked so sad once
she looked so blue
she looked so long
'til she found you
and now when I see her
i'm happy to be her
cause
somebody been lovin' her

and late tonight
when the music plays
that girl will feel
her body sway
she'll move to your timin'
she will shine like a diamond
lke
somebody been lovin' her
somebody been lovin' her

you make my world a relection of paradise
you make bein' me awfully nice
you were the first one to see
the woman in me
(chorus)

Pickin' Up The Pieces

makin' love with you
like we do
oh, you touch me where no one's
ever been
i'm born again

i've opened up inside
opened wide
and this feeling's enough
to make me cry
i'll tell you why

i used to dream like dreamers do
i really believed they'd all come true
but one by one i watched 'em all fall
'til i diddn't care at all

now i'm
pickin' up the pieces
i'm pickin' up the pieces
pickin' up the pieces
of my broken down dreams

there's one over there
near the chair
it's the one about walking in the sand
hand in hand

and here's on that i had
it drove me mad
it's the dream where he never let
me go
cause he loved me so

they may sound like
movie seens
fairy tales and dreams
of dreams
but i know they can all come true
if i fill 'em up with you

now i'm
pickin' up the pieces
i'm pickin' up the pieces
pickin' up the pieces
of my broken down dreams

pickin' up the pieces
pickin' up the pieces
yes, i trust you enough, my love,
to trust myself to dream again so i'm
pickin' up the pieces
i'm pickin' up the pieces
pickin' up the pieces
of my broken down dreams

Room Without A Door

you're a river much to deep for me baby
you're a mountain much too high
and i wanna get close to you again now baby
but lord knows i can't fly
and i'd love to laugh with you again
like we used to laugh before
but how can i get close to you again now baby
you're like a room without a door

can you tell me why you changed on me baby
or does change just come with time
was it something that i did or didn't do now baby
or did i cross some line
and where's the love i used to love
and would wake up waiting for
is it still inside you there somewhere my baby
in that room without a door

am i making it hard for you baby
making it hard for you to decide
if you are where you want to be
am i making it hard for you baby
making it hard for you to decide
in your heart of hearts
if you still want me

but try to make it black or white now for me baby
i can't be living in the gray
should i keep trying to get to you somehow now baby
or should i just go away
but i'd love to laugh with you again
like we used to laugh before
but how can i get close to you again now baby
you're like a room without a door

Right As Rain

is it just the love you give me
that drives me positively insane?

right as rain!

if i'm spinnin' like a top
and i can't begin to stop
oh, you've got to share the blame
and if gettin' high on love was a crime
don't you think we'd be doin' time
and your life be sentenced to mine?

right as rain!

when my sky begins to fall
will you be there when i call out your name?

right as rain!

and when it's turned around
and it's you who's feelin' down
don't you think i'll do the same?
am i gonna come on the run
just the way that i've always done?
will you still be my number one?

right as rain!

if kisses were a dozen a dime
you know we'd both be millionaires now
and the finest kind of burgandy wine
never could taste as good as we do
do we
you and i together make every
kind of weather the same?

right as rain!

and in the darkest night
when i see you smilin' bright
don't you put the stars to shame?
oh, even in the stormiest skies
when all these clouds are makin' me cry
will i find the sun in your eyes?

right as rain!

oh, even in the stormiest skies
when all these clouds are makin' me cry
will i find the sun in your eyes?

right as rain!

yes, i'll find the sun in your eyes

Kentucky Rainbows

i'm looking for kentucky rainbows
i think i see them in your eyes
but i have seen kentucky rainbows
fade and die
fade and die...

first man i ever loved was just like kentucky rain
comin' down
slow and easy
warm and tender
then he turned away from me
and i've never been the same
wherever i go, i remember
i still remember

i have seen kentucky rainbows
like a promise in the sky
lying with his arms around me
while i laughed
while i cried
i'm looking for kentucky rainbows
i think i see them in your eyes
but i have seen kentucky rainbows
fade and die
fade and die...

got caught in a summer storm
outside of louisville
while he held me close
and he filled my soul with wonder
i whispered "please don't leave me,
say you never will."
but i lost his answer in the thunder
i only heard the thunder

(chorus)

i'm looking for kentucky rainbows

Saying Hello, Saying I Love You, Saying Goodbye

oh, i've had my share of strangers
who turned into lovers
then turned bacl to strangers again
oh i lost 'em in a crowd
of sad passers-by
saying hello, saying i love you, saying goodbye

yes, it's a long way from nowhere
to the place where we're standin'
and baby, baby, we've finally arrived
after travelin' seperate highways
takin' all those dead-end rides
saying hello, saying i love you, saying goodbye

oh baby i hear you
i hear you
and i really do believe it
i finally do believe it in my heart

let's close all the doors behind us
and wrap the night around us
baby, no, don't say a word
let's just make love to each other
and leave the world outside
saying hello, saying i love you, saying goodbye

let's just make love to each other
and leave the world outside
saying hello, saying i love you, saying goodbye.

Seeing Is Believing

you come on like a bandit in the night
and i say, "that's all right, that's all right"
you take me, oh. you take me 'til the early morning light
and i say, "that's all right"

you always say in a day or so you'll call
and i believe you, i believe you
weeks go by, weeks go by and still i believe you

seeing is believing
but my love is blind
sometimes i just can't see
your love for me
seeing is believing
but my love is blind
so i still believe it's right
to give you mine

i'll be here to help you ease your pain
i love you, i love you
although i know, i know that
i have nothing more to gain
than to love you

(chorus)

i'd rather have just a little little
bit of you
than all of anybody else
i'd rather be just be pretending that
you're here with me
than pretending to be free
cause baby you own me
don't you know you own me?

(chorus)

seeing is believing

So Glad I Found You

no long walk is too long a walk
when you're wakin' it with me, my love
and no dark night can keep out the light
when you're watching over me, my love
no tough task is too much to ask
when you're askin' it of me, my love
and no zodiac can say to turn back
cause we're feelin' altogether in love

i'm so glad i found you
and i always want to stay around you
i'm so glad i found you and you found me

i'm so glad i found you
and when you feel my arms around you
aren't you sure that this was meant to be

i know it's true that i'm gettin' to you
and you know that you've gotten to me
and isn't it nice that we didn't think twice
we let it be naturally
whenever we fly if we're flyin' too high
well, there's nothing to be frightened of
wherever we fall it doesn't matter at all
cause we're falling altogether in love

(chorus)

we've got it all together
standin' tall together
right or wrong together
baby, baby, we'll be strong

(chorus)

He Ain't You

there's nothin' wrong with his kissin'
or the sweet touch of his hand
i only know there's something missin'
i guess i'll never understand

but he holds me tight
when he finds me cryin' at night
i guess he's doing the best he can

but he ain't you, babe
sometimes it shows that
he ain't you, babe
i think he knows that
he ain't you, babe
he ain't you

at night i close my eyes and see you
clear as i'm seeing you today
there's just no way he'll ever be you
and that's the price i'll have to pay

and he holds me tight
when he find me cryin' at night
i guess he's doing the best he can

but he ain't you, babe
sometimes it shows
he ain't you, babe
i think he knows that
he ain't you, babe

you always thought that i'd be your only
but like a fool i let you down
now i'm his-and oh it's lonely
is it too late to turn around?

cause he ain't you, babe
sometimes it shows that
he ain't you, babe
i think he knows that
he ain't you, babe

no, he ain't you, babe
sometimes it shows that
he ain't you, babe
i think he knows that
he ain't you, babe

The Ice Cream Man

i've been hitchin' down the
highway with the sun upon my back
tryin' to get to heaven without steppin' on a crack
thumbin' out to strangers, well i've made a dozen friends
been lookin' for a friend like you to take me back to him

take me to the ice cream man, oh if you've go the time
take me to the ice cream man, oh i still got a dime
take me to the ice cream man
take me to the ice cream man

i remember the bells of the wagon
as i saw him turn down heather lane
and the sun was a big yellow dragon
burnin' inside of my brain

well his cool vanilla kisses, oh they melted me away
kinda like that smile of yours has done to me today
and if i'm smilin' back,
it's just in memory of the few like him
who knew i needed just a taste of love

take me to the ice cream man

i can still hear the bells of the wagon
sittin' right here by your side
you don't have to slay all my dragons

can't thank you enough
it's more than enough
can't thank you enough for the ride...

only take me to the ice cream man, oh if you've go the time
take me to the ice cream man, oh i still got a dime
take me to the ice cream man
