Heart Of America ´96

 

It doesn´t matter wherever I roam

There´s just a place where I feel home

Every street I go leads right back to you

 

I´ve traveled round I´ve traveled so far

I took the plane, the ship and my car

Always lookin´ for my own lucky star

Which I found when I found you

 

Chorus:

I´m in the heart of America now

I´m in the heart of America now

 

I´m in the heart of America now

And I´m feelin´ good

 

I´m in the heart of America now

Feel like a part of America now

 

I´m in the heart of America now

And I keep holdin´ on to you, oh America

 

The city lights so bright in the night

The wilderness and noone´s in sight

While I´m drivin´ on the highway to the west

 

The sun´d goin´ down and I´m still on my way

To the San Francisco Bay and then down to L.A.

Cause that´s my fafourite place where I´m going to stay

There ain´t no turnin´ back

 

Chorus

 

 

Love Is The Answer

 

Do you remember

So many things they come and they go

And you surrender

Ehen there are times you don´t really know

What´s wrong or right

When you lose your hopes and dreams

Baby, I´ll be by your side

And I´ll show you what love can mean, cause

 

Chorus:

Love is the answer

Love makes things better

You´ll always need it

You just have to believe it

Baby, love is the answer to your prayer

 

Love don´t come easy

Love never falls from heaven above

You just gotta find it

You gotta know it´s really love

Or just a game

And we can´t just say we want it

It can only stay the same

If we lay all our power on it

 

Chorus:

Love is the answer

Love makes things better

You´ll always need it

You just have to believe it

Baby, love is the answer to your prayer

 

I thought I´d never know

What love can do to me

Since the day I fell in love I know

I´ll love you till eternity

 

 

Please Don´t Ever Try To Change Me

 

Here we are just you and me

Love has found us so easily

If two hearts are one

Then it´s just your´s and mine

And our love will last

Until the end of time

 

But there´s one thing, baby

You should never do

Cause it would take my love away from you

 

Chorus:

Please don´t ever try to change me

Take me just for what I am

Oh you can try to change

just anything, but baby

Please don´t ever try to change me

 

Time goes by for you and me

Dreams become reality

If we stay together

Baby, you will see

That it´s sometimes hard

To love a man like me

 

But there´s one thing, baby

You should never do

Cause it would take my love away from you

 

Chorus:

Please don´t ever try to change me

Take me just for what I am

Oh you can try to change

just anything, but baby

Please don´t ever try to change me

 

True love is hard to find

And love still makes you blind

But there´ll be something you will find

What you don´t like

Then please remember

 

Chorus

 

 

In The Rain

 

Wasn´t all that long ago

You told me that you love me so

In the rain

We had love and joy and so much fun

And we were dancing in the sun

And in the rain

 

I remember you swore that we´d never part

But then one day you broke my heart

And I was standin´ 

In the rain

And now you´re comin´ round again

Maybe you wanna let me down again

And leave me 

In the rain

 

Chorus:

I know that you try to get back into my heart

And you try hard to make a brand new start

Now you´re knockin´´ on my door

You say you wanna try once more

But tonight I let you standing

In the rain

 

First I thought we couldn´t go wrong

It took some time until the hurt was gone

The hurt and the pain

And today you´re comin´ round again

But I know someday you´re gonna let me down again

And leave me in the rain

 

Chorus:

I know that you try to get back into my heart

And you try hard to make a brand new start

Now you´re knockin´´ on my door

You say you wanna try once more

But tonight I let you standing

In the rain

 

You´re knocking at my door

You think I let you in

But tonight you gotta learn that you won´t win

 

 

Desperado

 

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one
But I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you
Can hurt you somehow

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She'll beat you if she's able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
And freedom, oh, freedom
Well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime?
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the nighttime from the day

You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences
Open the gate
It may be rainin'
But there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you
(Let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you
Before it's too late

 

 

One-Woman-Man

 

I guess I´ve just grown up

It took me longer Than most

But I can truly say, hand on heart

That I´m happier I´ve ever been

 

I went through all those ups and downs

And I don´t regret a thing

Yeah, it was great fun but even then

I was just lookin´ for that special one

 

When I met you girl

That was it for me

I have everything I wanted

I don´t wanna be free

 

Chorus:

I´m a one-woman man, one-woman man

I don´t need no other woman

Yeah I like what I am

I´m a one-woman man, one-woman man

There isn´t a day that goes by

When I don´t get out of bed

And thank god for how bloody lucky I am

 

The day I ran into you

You gave me feelings I never knew

No, I never had a lover like you

That makes me feel just the way that you do

 

Since I met you girl

You´re all that I see

I have everything I wanted

I don´t wanna be free

 

Chorus:

I´m a one-woman man, one-woman man

I don´t need no other woman

Yeah I like what I am

I´m a one-woman man, one-woman man

There isn´t a day that goes by

When I don´t get out of bed

And thank god for how bloody lucky I am

 

Let´s stay together

Forever in love

Whether times are good or bad

Let me be the one

You come running to

Whether times are happy or sad, baby yeah

 

Chorus

 

 

Music Is The Enemy Of War

 

Mrs Dubravic was pregnant

When the Bosnian war began

She and her husband left their little house

With some baggage in their old van

Their son was born in Sarajevo

In April ´92

With shells fallin´ everywhere around them

There was nothin´ they could do

 

Six month later in October

Her husband he was killed

Fighting near his former home

Left his wife and son alone

 

Chorus:

She said it´s hard to play my flute, you see

Cause my husband he always played with me

on his guitar

Fighting tears and with tremblin´ lips

She raised the flute and played a song of love

For music is the enemy of war

 

She took her son down to the cemetery

Beginning of the year

He walked straight to his daddy´s grave

Noone told him, it was here

 

So this is where my daddy sleeps

He couldn´t understand

Then the snow began to fall again

It was cold, and with his little hands

He was dusting snowflakes off the grave

sayin´ I´m just makin´ daddy´s bed

 

Chorus:

She said it´s hard to play my flute, you see

Cause my husband he always played with me

on his guitar

Fighting tears and with tremblin´ lips

She raised the flute and played a song of love

For music is the enemy of war

 

 

No One loves You More Than I

 

I´ve been waiting for a long time

For somebody like you

And I can still remember

When the night was all I knew

When I needed inspiration

For this empty heart of mine

And you tried so hard to reach for me

How could I be so blind

 

Take a lokk at my face

Noone´s gonna take your place

 

Chorus:

No one loves you more than I

You´re my heart, my soul, my one desire

The shelter in my life

You´re the one

You keep my heart inspired

So let me tell you

No one loves you more than I

 

I will always be the lover

You need in your hole life

And I promise I´ll do everything

To keep this love alive

 

Even though my friends are sayin´ 

That the thrill will soon be gone

Baby that don´t mean a thing to me

It still keeps goin´ strong

 

Chorus:

No one loves you more than I

You´re my heart, my soul, my one desire

The shelter in my life

You´re the one

You keep my heart inspired

So let me tell you

No one loves you more than I

 

Yeah I could have searched forever

And I never realized

That the treasure of real love

Was in your eyes

 

Chorus

 

 

Believe In Magic

 

Out of time and out of space

And the lights go down

Just a ghost walking over my grave

Darkness all around

 

I hear the sound I watch the scene

Can´t believe waht I see

There´s a voice inside my head

And it´s talking to me

 

Chorus:

Believe in magic

Believe in magic

This is all you gotta do

Believe in magic

Believe in magic

And life will be much easier for you

 

All the tricks and miracles

Take my breath away

Is it real or fantasy

Is it night or day

It´s time to go I´m back on the street

And face reality

But the voice inside my head

It keeps on talking to me

 

 

Chorus:

Believe in magic

Believe in magic

This is all you gotta do

Believe in magic

Believe in magic

And life will be much easier for you

 

 

Face another day

 

Through the years we´ve lived together

It´s never been an easy road

I know I´d be lost forever

If you said you´d have to go

 

When I gave my heart completely

I gave everything to you

When the times are full of trouble

You always know just what to do

 

Chorus:

I can face another day

as long as you are by my side

In this world of pain and sorrow

You always see me through the night

And I need you more than ever

I would never find my way

But with you

I can face another day

 

You would never leave me helpless

You would never leave me blind

You will always be around me

When I´m bound to lose my mind

 

 

When I gave my heart completely

I gave everything to you

When the times are full of trouble

You always know just what to do

 

 

Chorus:

I can face another day

as long as you are by my side

In this world of pain and sorrow

You always see me through the night

And I need you more than ever

I would never find my way

But with you

I can face another day

 

 

I can face another day

as long as you are here with me

In these times of pain and sorrow

You always mean the world to me

And I need you more than ever

I would never find my way

But with you

I can face another day

 

And I promise you forever

I would never let you go

And tonight I take the chance to let you know

 

Chorus

 

 

You´re My Life

 

You came into my life

Like an angel from heaven

It took me a long time

To believe that you´re real

You turned my world

Into one sweet dream

As you came out of nowhere

And rescued me

 

Chorus:

You´re my life

You´ve opened my eyes

You´re my life

You´re all that I need

You´re a star in the night

The sun in the sky

Every beat of my heart

Baby, that´s what you are

 

You´re my life

You light up my night

 

You´re my life

You make everything right

And if I could conquer time

I´d love you day and night

I never wanna say goodbye

Cause you´re my life

 

There´s always something new

And it´s only you

Givin´ me the power

To do the things I gotta do

Givin´ me faith

Every step of the way

Girls I´m at your mercy

Everytime you call my name

 

Chorus

 

 

Be Mine Tonight

 

I´m so excited when I see you

Cause you just give me what need

And I can´t wait to feel your touch on my skin

In your arms is where I wanna be

 

And when passion takes me over

Then only your love can set me free

I wanna show you all the love I feel inside

So stay just here with me

 

Chorus:

You´re gonna be mine tonight

It´s gonna be fine

And everything´s gonna be alright

You´re gonna be mine tonight

Cause you´re the only one to satisfy my desire

 

So come on to the fire

And baby never deny your heart

I´m gonna give you all the love I feel inside

Yeah, let me reach your deepest part

 

Chorus:

You´re gonna be mine tonight

It´s gonna be fine

And everything´s gonna be alright

You´re gonna be mine tonight

Cause you´re the only one to satisfy my desire

 

 

Tonight

 

Sometimes

You might think you´re all alone

No one calls you on the phone

You think there´s no reason

For you to carry on, oh

 

Sometimes

With the world upon your shoulders

You´re about to lose your mind

Don´t think your dream is over

Give it one more try

 

Chorus:

Tonight

You got wings and you fly

Your dreams come alive

With our love that will keep us together

When trouble and sorrow

and pain make you cry

Then love will give your heart the wings to fly

Tonight

 

Sometimes

When you think your world is over

And you say all your hope ist gone

Just keep on believin´ 

And holdin´ on

 

Chorus:

Tonight

You got wings and you fly

Your dreams come alive

With our love that will keep us together

When trouble and sorrow

and pain make you cry

Then love will give your heart the wings to fly

Tonight

 

Oh never look back

And never say die

Just tonight we´re gonna reach for the sky, oh

 

Chorus:

Tonight

You got wings and you fly

Your dreams come alive

With our love that will keep us together

When trouble and sorrow

and pain make you cry

Then love will give your heart the wings to fly

Tonight
