LYRICS



WHAT ARE YOU DOING THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

Author: Music Michel Legrand, Lyrics Alan and Marilyn Bergman



What are you doing the rest of your life?

North and South and East and West of your life

I have only one request of your life

That you spend it all with me



All the seasons and the times of your days

All the nickels and the dimes of your days

Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days

All begin and end with me



I want to see your face in every kind of light

In fields of dawn and forests of the night

And when you stand before the candles on a cake

Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make



Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes

In the world of love that you keep in your eyes

I'll awaken what's asleep in your eyes

It may take a kiss or two

Through all of my life

Summer, winter, spring, and fall of my life

All I ever will recall of my life

Is all of my life with you



I HAVE NOTHING

Author: David Foster and Linda Thompson




Share my life, take me for what I am

Cause I'll never change all my colors for you

Take my love, I'll never ask for too much

Just all that you are and everything that you do



I don't really need to look very much further

I don't want to have to go where you don't follow

I won't hold it back again, this passion inside

Can't run from myself, there's nowhere to hide



Well, don't make me close one more door

I don't wanna hurt anymore

Stay in my arms if you dare

Or must I imagine you there

Don't walk away from me

I have nothing, nothing, nothing

If I don't have you



You see through, right to the heart of me

You break down my walls with the strength of your love

I never knew love like I've known it with you

Will a memory survive, one I can hold on to



I don't really need to look very much further

I don't want to have to go where you don't follow

I won't hold it back again, this passion inside

I can't run from myself

There's nowhere to hide

Your love I'll remember forever



Don't make me close one more door

I don't wanna hurt anymore

Stay in my arms if you dare

Or must I imagine you there

Don't walk away from me...

I have nothing, nothing, nothing



Well, don't make me close one more door

I don't wanna hurt anymore

Stay in my arms if you dare

Or must I imagine you there

Don't walk away from me, no

Don't walk away from me

Don't you dare walk away from me

I have nothing, nothing, nothing

If I don't have you



NEW YORK STATE OF MIND

Author: Billy Joel




Some folks like to get away

Take a holiday from the neighborhood

Hop a flight to Miami Beach

Or to Hollywood

But I'm taking a Greyhound

On the Hudson River Line

I'm in a New York state of mind



I've seen all the movie stars

In their fancy cars and their limousines

Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens

But I know what I'm needing

And I don't want to waste more time

I'm in a New York state of mind



It was so easy living day by day

Out of touch with the rhythm and blues

But now I need a little give and take

The New York Times and The Daily News



It comes down to reality

And it's fine with me cause I've let it slide

I don't care if it's Chinatown or up on Riverside

I don't have any reasons

Cause I left them all behind

I'm in a New York state of mind




A SONG FOR YOU

Author: Leon Russell




I've been so many places in my life and time

I've sung a lot of songs and I've made some bad rhymes

I've acted out my life in stages

With ten thousand people watching

But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you



I know your image of me is what I hope to be,

I've treated you unkindly but darling can't you see

There's no one more important to me

Baby can't you see through me

Cause we are alone now and I'm singing this song for you



You taught me precious secrets of the true love, withholding nothing

You came out in front when I was hiding

But now I'm so much better so if my words don't come together

Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding



I love you in a place where there's no space or time

I love you for my life, cause you're a friend of mine

And when my life is over, remember when we were together

Cause were alone and I was singing my song for you



I love you in a place where there's no space or time

I've loved you for my life, you're a friend of mine

And when my life is over, remember when we were together

We were alone and I was singing my song for you,

We were alone and I was singing this song for you,

We were alone and I was singing my song,

Singing my song, singing my song, singing my song

For you…
