THE FIRST TIME EVER I SAW YOUR FACE
Roberta Flack
The first time ever I saw your face 
I thought the sun rose in your eyes 
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave 
To the dark and the endless skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth 
I felt the earth move in my hand 
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird 
That was there at my command my love

And the first time ever I lay with you 
I felt your heart so close to mine 
And I knew our joy would fill the earth 
And last till the end of time my love

The first time ever I saw your face 
Your face, your face


A CASE OF YOU

Joni Mitchell
Verse

Just before our love got lost you said
I am as constant as a northern star and I said,
Constantly in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice

Chorus

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter
And so sweet oh
I could drink a case of you darling and I would
Still be on my feet
Oh I would still be on my feet

Verse

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

I remember that time that you told me, you said
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine 'cause
Part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

Chorus

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter
And so sweet oh
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

Verse

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours, she knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds and she said
"Go to him
stay with him if you can
But be prepared to bleed"

Chorus

Oh but you are in my blood you're my holy wine
You're so bitter
bitter and so sweet oh
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet


​ONE DAY I'LL FLY AWAY

Randy Crawford
Verse

I may get along

when love is gone
Still, you made your mark

Here in my heart

Chorus

One day I'll fly away
Leave your love to yesterday
What more can your love do for me?
When will love be through with me?

Verse

I follow the night
Can't stand the light
When will will I begin
My life again

Chorus

One day I'll fly away
Leave your love to yesterday
What more can your love do for me
When will love be through with me

Why live life

From dream to dream
And dread the day

When dreaming ends


LET'S STAY TOGETHER (Sing-A-Long)

Al Green

Verse

​Let's stay together
I, I'm I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is all right with me

Cause you make me feel so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Let me say that since

Since we've been together
Loving you forever
Is what I need

Let me, be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue

Chorus
Let's, let's stay together
Lovin' you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad
Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Verse

Why, why some people break up
Then turn around and make up
I just can't see

You'd never do that to me
Staying around you is all I see

Chorus

Let's, let's stay together
Lovin' you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad
Let's, let's stay together
Lovin' you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad


​SUDDENLY

Billy Ocean

Verse
I used to think that love was just a fairy tale
Until that first hello until that first smile
But if I had to do it all again I wouldn't change a thing
Cause this love is everlasting

Chorus

Suddenly life has new meaning to me
There's beauty up above and things we never take notice of
You wake up suddenly you're in love

Verse

Girl you're everything a man could want and more
One thousand words are not enough to say what I feel inside
Holding hands as we walk along the shore
Never felt like this before now you're all I'm living for 


Chorus

Suddenly life has new meaning to me
There's beauty up above and things we never take notice of
You wake up suddenly you're in love

Bridge

Each day I pray this love affair would last forever

Chorus

Suddenly life has new meaning to me
There's beauty up above and things we never take notice of
You wake up suddenly you're in love


AT SEVENTEEN

Janis Ian

Verse

I learned the truth at seventeen
That love was meant for beauty queens
And high school girls with clear skinned smiles
Who married young and then retired

The valentines I never knew
The Friday night charades of youth
Were spent on one more beautiful
At seventeen I learned the truth

Chorus

And those of us with ravaged faces
Lacking in the social graces
Desperately remained at home
Inventing lovers on the phone
Who called to say "come dance with me"
And murmured vague obscenities
It isn't all it seems at seventeen

Verse

A brown eyed girl in hand me downs
Whose name I never could pronounce
Said: "pity please the ones who serve
They only get what they deserve"

The rich relationed hometown queen
Marries into what she needs
With a guarantee of company
And haven for the elderly 

Chorus

So remember those who win the game
Lose the love they sought to gain
In debitures of quality and dubious integrity
Their small-town eyes will gape at you
In dull surprise when payment due
Exceeds accounts received at seventeen


Verse

To those of us who knew the pain
Of valentines that never came
And those whose names were never called
When choosing sides for basketball

It was long ago and far away
The world was younger than today
When dreams were all they gave for free
To ugly duckling girls like me...

Chorus

We all play the game, and when we dare
We cheat ourselves at solitaire
Inventing lovers on the phone
Repenting other lives unknown
That call and say: "come on, dance with me"
And murmur vague obscenities
At ugly girls like me, at seventeen


NOTHING COMPARES 2 U (Sing-A-Long)

Prince

Verse

It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away 

Bum Bum Bum Bum Bum
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Bum Bum Bum Bum Bum

Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose

Bum Bum Bum Bum Bum
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

Chorus

'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

Verse

It's been so lonely without you here
Like a bird without a song

Bum Bum Bum Bum Bum
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong

I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they'd only remind me of you

Bum Bum Bum Bum Bum
I went to the doctor and guess what he told me
Guess what he told me
He said girl you better try to have fun no matter what you do

But he's a fool

Chorus

'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

Verse

All the flowers that you planted mama
In the back yard
All died when you went away

Bum Bum Bum Bum Bum

I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard
But I'm willing to give it another try

Chorus

'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you



LOVIN' YOU (Sing-A-Long)

THE SCIENTIST (Sing-A-Long)

Coldplay

Verse

Come up to meet you
Tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are

I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh let's go back to the start

Running in circles

Coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Chorus

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

Verse

I was just guessing at

Numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart

Questions of science

Science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start

Running in circles

Chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Chorus

Nobody said it was easy
Oh it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start

I BELIEVE IN YOU AND ME

The Four Tops/Whitney Houston

Verse
I believe in you and me
I believe that we will be
In love eternally
As far as I can see
You will always be the one for me

I believe in dreams again
I believe that love will never end
And like the river finds the sea
I was lost

Now I'm free

Chorus

I believe in you and me

Verse

I will never leave your side
I will never hurt your pride
When all the chips are down
I will always be around
Just to be right there where you are, my love

I will never leave you out
I will always let you in
To places no one's ever been
Deep inside

Can't you see

Chorus

I believe in you and me

Bridge

Maybe I'm a fool
To feel the way I do
But I would play the fool forever
Just to be with you forever

Verse

I believe in miracles
Love's a miracle
And baby you're a dream come true
I was lost

Now I'm free

Chorus

I believe in you and me

Outro

I was lost

Now I'm free girl
I believe in you and me


THINKING OUT LOUD

Ed Sheeran
Verse

When your legs don't work like they used to before
And I can't sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks

And darling I will be loving you 'til we're 70
And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23

Prechorus

And I'm thinking 'bout how

People fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Oh me I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am

Chorus

So honey now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are


Verse

When my hair's all but gone and my memory fades
And the crowds don't remember my name
When my hands don't play the strings the same way, mm
I know you will still love me the same


Prechorus

'Cause honey your soul can never grow old, it's evergreen
Baby your smile's forever in my mind and memory
I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe it's all part of a plan
I'll just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you'll understand


Chorus

But baby now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are, oh


​EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER (Sing-A-Long)

Vivian Green
Last night I cried, tossed and turned
Woke up with dry eyes
My mind was racing, feet were pacing
Lord, help me please, tell me what I have gotten into
Ran my three miles to clear my mind
It always helps me out
It's my therapy when I'm losin' it
Which is usually, hey


Chorus

I'm on an emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy
Lovin' you was never good for me(For me)
But I can't get off
This emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy
Lovin' you was never good for me (For me
)
But I can't get off


Verse

Yesterday I told myself
I was gonna be okay
Gonna start a new day, truly happy
I was gonna take control of me
But eventually reality hit me
Mentally, physically, emotionally
And I opened my eyes and realized
That I was still bein' taken for a constant ride


Chorus

I'm on an emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy

Lovin' you was never good for me
But I can't get off
Emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy
Lovin' you was never good for me
 
But I can't get off


Bridge
So tired of you makin' love to me
Then disappearing so suddenly
Up and down it goes
And I'm so tired of you pacifyin' me
With promises you know that you'll never keep
Round and round it goes


Chorus

I'm on an emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy
Lovin' you was never good for me
But I can't get off
Emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy
Lovin' you was never good for me 
But I can't get off


TIME AFTER TIME (Sing-A-Long)

Cyndi Lauper

Verse

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
And think of you
Caught up in circles confusion
Is nothing new

Flashback

Warm nights
Almost left behind
Suitcases of memories,
Time after

Sometimes you picture me
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me, I can't hear
What you've said

Then you say

Go slow
I fall behind

The second hand unwinds

Chorus

If you're lost you can look

And you will find me
Time after time

If you fall I will catch you

I'll be waiting 
Time after time


Verse

After my picture fades and darkness

Has turned to gray
Watching through windows

You're wondering
If I'm OK

Secrets stolen

From deep inside
The drum beats out of time


Chorus

If you're lost you can look
And you will find me
Time after time

If you fall I will catch you
I'll be waiting 
Time after time


THOUGH THE FIRE

Chaka Khan

Verse

I look in your eyes and I can see
We've loved so dangerously
You're not trusting your heart to anyone

You tell me you're gonna play it smart
We're through before we start
But I believe that we've only just begun

Prechorus

When it's this good, there's no saying no
I want you so, I'm ready to go

Chorus

Through the fire
To the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you
I'd gladly risk it all

Through the fire
Through whatever, come what may
For a chance at loving you
I'd take it all the way
Right down to the wire
Even through the fire

Verse

I know you're afraid of what you feel
You still need time to heal
And I can help if you'll only let me try

You touch me and something in me knew
What I could have with you
Well I'm not ready to kiss that dream goodbye

Prechorus

When it's this sweet, there's no saying no
I need you so, I'm ready to go

Chorus

Through the fire
To the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you
I'd gladly risk it all

Through the fire
Through whatever, come what may
For a chance at loving you
I'd take it all the way
Right down to the wire
Even through the fire


I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

Dolly Parton/Whitney Houston

​If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I'll go but I know
I'll think of you

Every step of the way

Chorus

And I will always love you
I will always love you

Bittersweet memories
That is all I'm taking with me
So goodbye
Please don't cry
We both know

I'm not what you need

I will always love you


Verse

I hope life

Treats you kind
And I hope

You have all you've dreamed of
And I wish you joy and happiness
But above all this I wish you love

Chorus
And I will always love you
I will always love you

Take me on

(take on me)
I'll be gone
In a day or two
