Someone Like You

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I’d hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Breathe

I can feel the magic floatin’ in the air
Being with you gets me that way
I watch the sunlight dance across your face, and I,
I’ve never been this swept away

All my thoughts just seem to settle on the breeze
When I’m lying wrapped up in your arms
The whole world just fades away, the only thing I hear
Is the beating of your heart

And I can feel you breathe, it’s washing over me
Suddenly I’m melting into you
There’s nothing left to prove, baby all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch, slow and steady rush
And baby, isn’t that the way love’s supposed to be
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

In a way I know my heart is waking up
As all the walls come tumblin’ down
Closer that I’ve ever felt before and I know and you know
There’s no need for words right now

I can feel the magic floatin’ in the air
Being with you gets me that way

Still Here

You looked at me and saw what I never could see
You made me feel more than I thought I could ever be
And when I needed a friend you were always there to lift me up
To make me strong
You’re not gone

You’re still here
With me all the time
You’re still here
When I close my eyes
I still see you
I still feel you
And we’ll never be apart
You’re still here
Still here in my heart
In my heart

Because of you I knew how it felt to be loved
You made me feel beautiful ’cause you believed I was
And I will never forget how you touched my life
You made me feel like I belong
You live on

You’re still here
With me all the time
You’re still here
When I close my eyes
I still see you
I still feel you
And we’ll never be apart
You’re still here
Still here in my heart
In my heart

All my life
You’ll be in my life
You’ll be part of me
I’ll just think of you and you’ll still be
You’ll still be here

Still here
You’re with me all the time
You’ll still be here
Still here
When I close my eyes
I still see you
I still feel you
And we’ll never be apart
You’re still here in my heart

You’re still…
I still feel you
And we’ll never be apart
You’re still here in my heart
In my heart
In my heart
In my heart
Still here

Forever’s as Far as I’ll Go

I’ll admit I could feel it
The first time that we touched
And the look in your eyes
Said you felt as much

But I’m not a (wo)man
Who falls too easily
It’s best that you know
Where you stand with me

I will give you my heart
Faithful and true
And all that it can hold
That’s all I can do
Cause I’ve thought about
How long I’ll love you
And it’s only fair
Forever’s as far as I’ll go

When there’s age around my eyes
And gray in my hair
And it only takes a touch
To recall the love we’ve shared

I won’t take for granted
You’ll always know my love is true
Cause each night in your arms
I will whisper to you

I will give you my heart
Faithful and true
And all that it can hold
That’s all I can do
Cause I’ve thought about
How long I’ll love you
And it’s only fair
Forever’s as far as I’ll go

Forever’s as far as I’ll go

Anytime

I can’t remember why we fell apart
From something that was so meant to be
Forever was the promise in our hearts
Now more and more I wonder where you are

Do I ever cross your mind – anytime?
Do you ever wake up reaching out for me?
Do I ever cross your mind – anytime?
I miss you

Still have your picture in the frame
Hear your footsteps down the hall
I swear I hear your voice driving me insane
How I wish that you would call to say

Do I ever cross your mind – anytime?
Do you ever wake up reaching out for me?
Do I ever cross your mind – anytime?
I miss you, I miss you

No more loneliness and heartache
No more crying myself to sleep
No more wondering about tomorrow

Won’t you come back to me?
Come back to me
Oh, ho, oh

Do I ever cross your mind – anytime?
Do you ever wake up reaching out for me?
Do I ever cross your mind – anytime?
I miss you

I Can’t Stop Loving You

I can’t stop loving you
I’ve made up my mind
to live in memory of 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, still make me blue
They say that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we’be been apart

I can’t stop loving you
I’ve made up my mind
to live in memory of old lonesome time
I can’t stop loving you

I Will Always Love You

If I should stay,
I would only be in your way.
So I’ll go, but I know
I’ll think of you ev’ry step of the way.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
You, my darling you. Hmmm.

Bittersweet memories
that is all I’m taking with me.
So, goodbye. Please, don’t cry.
We both know I’m not what you, you need.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of.
And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
But above all this, I wish you love.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I, I will always love you.

You, darling, I love you.
Ooh, I’ll always, I’ll always love you.

Words and music by Dolly Parton

I Believe in You

They ask me how I feel
And if my love is real
And how I know I’ll make it through.
And they, they look at me and frown,
They’d like to drive me from this town,
They don’t want me around
‘Cause I believe in you.

They show me to the door,
They say don’t come back no more
‘Cause I don’t be like they’d like me to,
And I walk out on my own
A thousand miles from home
But I don’t feel alone
‘Cause I believe in you.

I believe in you even through the tears and the laughter,
I believe in you even though we be apart.
I believe in you even on the morning after.
Oh, when the dawn is nearing
Oh, when the night is disappearing
Oh, this feeling is still here in my heart.

Don’t let me drift too far,
Keep me where you are
Where I will always be renewed.
And that which you’ve given me today
Is worth more than I could pay
And no matter what they say
I believe in you.

I believe in you when winter turn to summer,
I believe in you when white turn to black,
I believe in you even though I be outnumbered.
Oh, though the earth may shake me
Oh, though my friends forsake me
Oh, even that couldn’t make me go back.

Don’t let me change my heart,
Keep me set apart
From all the plans they do pursue.
And I, I don’t mind the pain
Don’t mind the driving rain
I know I will sustain
‘Cause I believe in you.

Artist: Bob Dylan

Last Dance

Do we know more than we knew then
Or do we know less and we just pretend
Should I ignore my heart and walk away
Your eyes tell me more than words will ever say

Should we take a chance and dance the last dance
Should we spend the night one more time
Caught up in this romance
Or maybe wait and see
Let it be, the way that it will be
Should we take a chance and dance the last dance

How can I be wrong when I feel the way I feel
How can I deny emotion that’s so real
In the middle of the night I call out your name
Do I ever cross your mind — do, do you feel the same

Like we should take a chance and dance the last dance
Should we spend the night one more time
Caught up in this romance
Or maybe wait and see
Let it be, the way that it will be
Should we take a chance and dance the last dance

Let me go
Come to me
Which way is the way that it should be
This is so bitter sweet
There’s no that way we will ever know for sure

Unless we take a chance and dance the last dance
We should spend the night one more time
Caught up in this romance
Or maybe wait and see
Let it be, the way that it will be
Should we take a chance and dance the last dance
