Billy Squier

, 1984. Brian plays guitar. Length 4:53.
Available on the albums 'Signs Of Life' and 'Reach For The Sky - The Anthology'.
'Signs Of Life' was later released as part of a double CD with the 'Emotions In Motion' album.
Lyrics:
From over the air comes a voice without care
Says we’re doin’ all right
But day out and day in from what he’s been sayin’
We’re in for a fight
I glance at myself and the world rushin’ by
I can see for myself and the fear comes alive
Shades of termination, we’re dyin’ to survive

1984
1984

Machine is the mind, it will rule by design
So you’re never alone
We store information without confirmation
Accept the unknown
I think to myself of the times we have tried
To be true to ourselves and to live with the lie
Avoid the contradictions, just keep yourself alive

1984

I can’t help it (ahh, ahh)
I can’t help it (ahh, ahh)
I can’t help it
Life is your decision, we choose to do or die
Can you live with the reality of 1985?

Polite conversation ain’t no consolation
For blanks in your eyes
Amidst the confusion there lives the illusion
That love will survive
But I got a chance with myself if I try
To be sure of myself and myself choose to try
Fight for stimulation and love to stay alive

Alternate Versions:
1. 'Backtrack' Version (4:18+) (available on the 'Backtrack' album only; this is a shorter version which is equivalent to approximately 0:20 to 4:30, omitting the instrumental intro and outro; it seems to have some minor mixing changes but is essentially the same, with identical lyrics)
Lyrics:
In this world
Thee and me
Find ourselves
The key

With these hands
Touching souls
Reaching out
For goals

Reaching out for goals
So many times you've left untold
What we need
Is a shift in the wind
What we need
Is a shift in the wind
What we need
Is a shift in the wind

Children die
Every minute
The price is high
Well isn't it?

When you know
There's food for all
The time has come
The nations call

Calling out for goals
So many times you've left untold
What we need
Is a shift in the wind
What we need
Is a shift in the wind

Making a good life
Making a good life for all
Making a good life
Making a good life for all

What we need
Is a shift in the wind
What we need
Is a shift in the wind
What we need
Is a shift in the wind
What we need
Is a shift in the wind

You wrote me a letter
You called me your friend
You made me feel better
Until you got to the end

You sounded so lazy
Never could fight

(Crazy nights) We kiss and we fight on
(Crazy nights) Wearing the bedclothes
(Crazy nights) But I can forget those crazy nights
Got to be the best nights of our lives (crazy nights)

You took me to Venice
You took me to Rome
I beat you at tennis
So you sent me home

When you're feeding your ego
You treat me so nice
But mainly where we go baby
I'm lying there seeing your lies

(Crazy nights) Ooh got to care me
(Crazy nights) Nothing to save me
(Crazy nights) You put under pressure
(Crazy nights) Baby better guess your crazy nights
Got to be the best nights of our lives
Crazy nights, crazy nights
Crazy
One two three four one let's go

I shouldn't find your letter, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm telling no lies
I got to be dead and buried
To let you leave my life (let you leave my life)

(Crazy nights) Love leave the light on, yeah, yeah, yeah

Golden corn waving in the sun
Golden days unaware we run
Well I won't forget the sound
Golden dreams shattered on the ground

Oh I miss you

Oh you'll never know
Golden days

In the sunshine of this year
I remember your face so clear
If you want, we can journey back
Find the traces of our golden days

Golden days
Golden days
How I miss you
Those golden days

Say you hear me
Say your heart beats
Say your love burns on in the rain
And I hold you
And I’ll touch you once again

Golden corn waving in the sun
Golden days unaware we run

Golden days
Golden days
How I miss you
Those golden days

Available on the album 'La Vida En El Filo', and released as a 7" single in Spain only (edited to 4:00). It is also available on iTunes, on the album 'Coleccion Privada'.
The lyrics are in Spanish, so I am unable to correct any errors.
Lyrics:
Como un susurro que recorre la ciudad
Así me llega el recuerdo de ti.

Una luz que se quiebra en la oscuridad
Un gemido que rompe el silencio.
Como el aire te quiero para respirar
Sin tus ojos mi vida no brilla.

Un deseo se apaga buscándote amor
Como una piedra me dejas sin vida.
No puedo dejar de querer
No quiero cambiarte por nada.

Gritare hasta que salga el sol
Moriré si no estas a mi lado.
Quiero ver lo que tu ves
Y tocar lo que tu tocas
Acariciar toda tu piel
Y tenerte en mi boca
Como la sangre
Que no tiene por donde pasar
Así se queda mi vida sin ti.
Una luz que se quiebra en la oscuridad
Una lagrima triste no llega a caer.
A mi lado te siento siempre
Por mi espalda te noto llegar

Bad News

(album)

[shop]

Bad News

, 1987. Brian produced the album and two additional non-album tracks, and plays guitar on at least three tracks.

'Bad News' were a spoof heavy metal group comprising comedians Adrian Edmondson, Rik Mayall, Nigel Planer and Peter Richardson, who featured in two episodes of 'The Comic Strip' in 1983 and 1988. Instead of being a standard album of songs, the album is a collection of songs and arguments within the band while trying to record it. The 'Bad News' album was released in 1987, reissued in the USA on CD in 1989, again in the UK in 2004, and many of the tracks appear on 'The Cash In Compilation'. A second album, 'Bootleg', features just one track with a Brian connection. As well as the album Brian has made a number of live appearances with the group.

Due to the amount of dialogue and difficulties in deciphering it, this page only includes lyrics of the completed songs on the albums, rather than the arguments or half-complete tracks.

I'm a warrior, I'll kill myself one day

Bohemian Rhapsody

[shop]

Bad News

, 1987. Produced by Brian.
This song was previously recorded by Queen for the 1975 album 'A Night At The Opera'.
Available on all releases of the 'Bad News' album, and 'The Cash In Compilation', which includes one of the versions listed below.
The track may feature John Deacon on bass and backing vocals, but the extensive liner notes have no mention of him so it seems unlikely.
Available Versions:
1. Original Version / Take 2 (3:34) (released on the 7" single and on all 'Bad News' albums; this is the full version)
2. Single 'Alternate' Version (3:14) (on the 12" single only; this is the full single version, but with the ending from take 1)
3. Take 1 (0:31) (on the 2004 CD and possibly the original album, but not the US CD; this fades in towards the end, Vim plays the wrong chord and the track ends abruptly, followed by an argument)

Lyrics: (the original version contains all lyrics, the alternate version loses the lyrics in blue, and Take 1 includes only the lyrics in red)
Mama, I just killed a man
I put a gun upto his head
I pulled the trigger now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away

Mama, oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I don't wanna die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouche, Scaramouche will you do the fandango?
Thunderbolts and lightning - very, very frightening me
Gallileo, Gallileo
Gallileo, Gallileo
Gallileo, figaro - magnifico-o-o-o-oh

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go, let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go, let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go, let me go
Will not let you go, let me go
Will not let you go, let him go
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no (absolutely not)
Oh, mama mia, mama mia
Mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me

No

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Ooh, baby, can't do this to me baby
I just gotta get out - I just gotta get right outta here


Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing
really matters
Nothing really matters to me

Lyrics:
We search for an answer
And when it appears
We can challenge the world
With our sweat and our tears

Through winning and losing
Oh, the brave never bend
And the hero keeps fighting
Standing tall in the end

And time can heal anything, it can mend any fall
It's the moment of truth that's facing us all
And it's time for the hero to stand tall

It's a time for heroes
Time to answer the call
It's a time for heroes
In us all

We carry the flame
For all to see
And the fire and the passion of what we can be

And sometimes we must fight
Oh, but we'll never, never bend
And the hero keeps fighting
Standing tall in the end

And love can change anything, it's inside of us all
To reach out a hand now, oh, whenever we fall
It's time for the hero to stand tall

It's a time for heroes
Time to answer the call
It's a time for heroes to stand tall (oh, oh, oh)

It's a time for heroes (oh, oh, oh, oh)
When our back's to the wall
It's a time for heroes in us all

It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)
Deep inside of our soul (deep inside of our soul)
It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)

It's a time for heroes
Time to answer the call
It's a time for heroes to stand tall (wo, oh, oh)

It's a time for heroes (oh, oh, oh, oh)
When our back's to the wall
It's a time for heroes

It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)
It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)
It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)
It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)
It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)
It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)
It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)
It's a time for heroes (it's a time for heroes)

Electric Rumba

(Tour Du Monde En 45 Tours)


Jose Lucas

, 1987. Brian is rumoured to play guitar. Length 4:10.
Jose Lucas has claimed that Brian appears on the track, but Brian himself has no recollection of it. It is available on Youtube, and features a short Brian sounding guitar solo at around 3:10, but could well be another guitarist using a Red Special replica.
As this is a French language track, I am unable to provide the lyrics.

Lyrics: (the single version loses the first verse)
Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm walking
Walking
Baby I know what my poor heart needs
But I'm talking

Talking

I should know better
I've seen it all before
As a woman I guess I've always been my own woman
I should be leaving
I should have the sense to say
Such a pleasant evening, thank you
See you again someday

But then my problem shows
I guess I'd like to know how it might really feel
To be alone with you

Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm walking
Walking
Baby I know what my poor heart needs
But I'm talking
You know I'm talking of love

I should know better
What am I waiting for
If I lose my heart I'll only have myself to blame
But if you leave me now (if you leave me now)
You know I'll never know how to fall in love again

Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm walking
Walking down it
Baby I know what my poor heart needs, but I'm talking
You know I'm talking of love
You know I'm talking of love

You're talking business
We're talking business
And I need you so

Forget your business
None of your business
I get the feeling you know what I'm talking about

Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm walking
Walking down it anyway
Baby I know what my poor heart needs
But I'm talking
You know I'm talking of love

Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm talking
Talking

You know we're talking of love

The Last Time I Made Love


Anita Dobson

, 1988. Brian produced, played guitar, and sang backing vocals. Length 2:59.
Available as track 2 on the album 'Talking Of Love'.
Lyrics:
The first time I made love
It wasn't love at all
Didn't know what to feel
It didn't seem real
That's all I can recall

I thought that's all love is
Now I know so much more
Now I know I've never
Really made love before
I'll tell you when I leave
The last time I made love
I made it with you

The first time we made love
It was all that it could be
Your soul and mine
So swivelled in time
Blended perfectly

The magic that we knew
Is something that lives on
Refusing to die
Why try to believe it's gone
One truth is always true
The last time I made love
I made it with you

Now lovers come and go
Oooh, people get so sad so easily
But through it all I've seen
That no matter what I do
When there's someone new
The last time I made love

I made it with you
Ooooh

You Can't Stay The Night


Anita Dobson

, 1988. Brian produced and sang backing vocals. Length 4:45.
Available as track 3 on the album 'Talking Of Love'.
Lyrics:
You can't stay the night

You know I called you and said come on over
Well I just needed some company
I only wanted to cry on your shoulder
That don't mean you can stay with me

'Cos I'm just not ready
To go through all that again
Maybe someday I'll want you to love me
But I'll tell you where and when

You can't stay the night, no, no, no
This is no way to start a new love affair
You can't stay the night, no, no, no
When I'm good and ready, babe
You know I'll be there

No you can't, you can't, you can't
You can't stay the night

I'm only human it's a new situation
I'm attracted that's for sure
Don't make me feel I've got to yield to temptation
Don't you think I'm worth waiting for

Things will work out better
If you'll just get in your car and go
And if I feel any different tomorrow
Baby, you'll be the first to know

You can't stay the night, no, no, no
This is no way to start a new love affair
You can't stay the night
When I'm good and ready babe
You know I'll be there

No you can't, no you can't, no you can't
You can't stay the night

You can't stay the night

So put your kings in your conflict (you can't stay the night)
And if there's fun there to learn (you can't stay the night)
Just to learn from the future
And I'll be the one to decide
When you can't stay the night
Oooh, you can't stay the night

No
Get in your car and go
Oooh, you can't stay the night
No
I said no
Go
You can't stay the night
Oh, I said no
You can't stay the night
Oooh, you can't stay the night
Don't you know it's not right
No you can't, no you can't, no you can't

No you can't stay, I'm sorry
You can't stay the night
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
You can't stay the night

Oh, you can't stay the night
No
Just go home
Goodbye
The door's that way
That's the door to the bedroom
I said no

Funny Old Life Ain't It


Anita Dobson

, 1988. Brian co-wrote the track with Anita, produced, and sang backing vocals. Length 4:32.
Available as track 5 on the album 'Talking Of Love'.
This track is a sort of 'rap' by Anita, speaking with a heavy cockney accent.
Lyrics:
Life's a bitch, my mum's a witch
My hamster died last night
My brother's got flu
'Says he got it from you
Funny old life ain't it

It's a funny old life
A funny old life
A funny life ain't it

It's a funny old life
A funny old life
A funny life ain't it

Hello, I'm glad you came round
I've been sitting here waiting for you for hours
Where've you been?
Honestly, some people have got no sense of timing
And don't say nothin' horrible about my song
'Cos I'm gonna sing you another verse
So just wait till you've heard it, alright?
Ready

Don't school dinners stink
And I'd rather have a drink
And my dad's bent, brown and bitter
Maggots rule
Bum, bum school
Funny old life ain't it

It's a funny old life
It's a funny old life
It's a funny life ain't it

It's a funny old life
A funny old life
A funny life ain't it

What do you reckon? Oh, don't say rubbish
Everybody says that, it's a really old verse
This is really important to me, I want to be a writer when I grow up
And don't tell me I'm gonna grow up
Anyway, this is really good
It's for my school play, and I'm gonna do it at Christmas
My schoolteacher says she thinks I've got artistic flair - ey?
I said artistic flair, cloth ears

Listen, I'll do you another verse
What do you think, alright?

I try to keep in my mum's good books
But I spilt it on her dress
I didn't know where the things should go
But I don't half like making a mess
'Cos life is really, really, really, terrible

It's a funny old life
Funny old life
Funny life ain't it

It's a funny old life
Funny old life
Funny life ain't it

I think it's good, considering it's my first attempt
My teacher says, if I get through, you know, the auditions
'Cos I'm gonna perform it, you know, at high school
And if it is good, then she's gonna let me do it for real
She says I'll have to have a really nice dress
And my mum's gonna have to cough up a lot of money
And I'm gonna have to do my own make up
That's a bit of a problem, really
'Cos I was watching my mum doing it the other day
You know, she's got these things that she sticks on her eyes
I think they call them false eyelashes
Women have false everything, don't they
My mum's got a false bra, false hairpiece, false eyelashes, false nails
Honestly, I reckon if she lost them all, my mum wouldn't be there at all

One of her eyelashes, the other day, I never told her, but
She dropped it down the side of the table
And I thought it was my pet spider
Anyway, my dad came in and he said 'what are you doing on the floor, girl'
I said dad, I've dropped my spider and mum's eyelashes have gone on the floor
And I don't know which one's which
Anyway, cut a long story short, my dad stood on both of 'em
So my spider's dead now
But my mum's eyelashes don't half look funny on her eyes

Anyway, I'll do you another verse
'Cos we're supposed to be working
This is my sort of fairly adventurous verse

I saw this film and it weren't half good
All goodies riding about
They kept making noises, grunting noises
And it sounded really, really, really terrible

Funny old life
Funny old life
Funny old life ain't it

It's a funny old life
Funny old life
Funny old life ain't it

Do you wanna join in?
'Cos sometimes when you're feeling really miserable
If you have a little chant to yourself
It does make you feel better, don't it?
I'm gonna get the whole school to do it
The choir and the scout's group
I've already got all my mates to come round
But they just keep taking the Michael out of me
Have a go, with me, after three
Three
No wait a minute
After three - one - two - three - go

It's a funny old life
Funny old life
Funny life ain't it

It's a funny old life
Funny old life
Funny old life ain't it

My mum and dad have had a row
They're just not speaking again
When I grow up I think I'm just
Gonna go and live at the end of my garden
All on my own
You know what?
Some people - I know this bloke
He lives in a cave, I think he's called a hermit
Anyway, he got so fed up of everybody being horrible to him
He just said 'I'm going to the garden to eat worms'

Let Me In

(Your Heart Again)

This track was previously recorded by Queen for the 1984 album 'The Works', but not completed. It was subsequently released on the 2014 compilation 'Forever', retitled 'Let Me In Your Heart Again'.
Lyrics:
When people talk of love, I'll join in conversation
I'll say I feel just fine, happy with my situation
But when I look away, people know my mind is spinning
To where I once belonged, I'll dream I'm in your heart again

Let me in
Let me in your heart again

When love has let you down, I'll be your consolation
We'll talk and talk our lives, through every complication
But when you went away, you took my heart and soul away with you
But now I stand alone and dream I'm in your heart again

Let me in
Let me in
Let me in your heart again

So many nights we meet, in my imagination
And everywhere I turn, you're still my inspiration
Then yesterday you came, and turned my whole world upside down again
You won't hear me complaining, I'm back inside your heart again

You let me in
You let me in
You let me in your heart again

Oooh, you let me in your heart again

I'll be good to him
I'll bring love to him
Everyone says there'll come a day
I'll walk alongside of him
To know, know, know him
Is to love, love, love him
And I do

Why can't he see?
How blind can he be?
Someday he'll see
That he was meant for me, oh, oh

To know, know, know him
Is to love, love, love him
Just to see him smile
Makes my life worthwhile
To know, know, know him
Is to love, love, love him
And I do
Yes I do

To know, know, know him
Is to love, love, love him
Just to see him smile
Makes my life worthwhile
To know, know, know him
Is to love, love, love him
And I do
Yes I do
Yes I do
Yes I do

Anita Dobson

Available as track 8 on the album 'Talking Of Love'.
Lyrics:
I'll bet the neon lights are shining
For you somewhere out in the dark
Nobody sees my eyes are crying
It's a private show but I'm playing the part

You're the one I dream about
In the night and when the stars come out
You're the sunshine
You make my world for me

Don't fall in love with anybody else
'Cos anyday you'll find out for yourself
Love is real
And I believe it's true
I couldn't fall in love with anyone but you

I try to build my world around you
I believe in you, don't give up the fight
I'm not the only one who wants you
I wonder who you're holding tonight

By the phone that never rings
I'm alone with the pain you bring
You're the heartache
You're tearing my world apart

Don't fall in love with anybody else
'Cos anyday you'll find out for yourself
Love is real
And I believe it's true
I couldn't fall in love with anyone but you

You're the wild one
You make my world for me

Don't fall in love with anybody else
'Cos anyday you'll find out for yourself
Love is real
And I believe it's true
I couldn't fall in love with anyone but you

Don't fall in love with anybody else
'Cos anyday you're gonna find out for yourself
Love is real
I do believe it's true
I couldn't fall in love with anyone but you

Don't fall in love with anybody else

Lyrics:
Talkin'

Hi, it's me, where you been?
I've been waiting, but you never turned up
Oh well, I guess I'll just have to sit here - and wait
Could you tell me a story, go on, talk to me, please
Talk to me, I'm lonely, come on
Please, come on, I'll tell you a story, only I don't know any stories
What's your name? I'll tell you mine
Come on, talk to me, please talk to me
I want someone to talk to me

Oh, I'll make you laugh
Oh, I'll make you cry
I'll make you feel good
I'll keep on talking, all night if you like
Come on, tell me, and I'll tell you
That's all there is
Talk to me, talk to me, now, now
Come on, come on
That's better

Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm walking
Walking
Baby I know what my poor heart needs
But I'm talking
You know I'm talking of love

I should know better
What am I waiting for
If I lose my heart I'll only have myself to blame
But if you leave me now (if you leave me now)
You know I'll never know how to fall in love again

Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm walking
Walking down it
Baby I know what my poor heart needs, but I'm talking
You know I'm talking of love
You know I'm talking of love

You're talking business
We're talking business
And I need you so

Forget your business
None of your business
I get the feeling you know what I'm talking about

Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm walking
Walking down it anyway
Baby I know what my poor heart needs
But I'm talking
You know I'm talking of love

Baby I know where this road leads, but I'm talking
Talking

I love you, I just love you
That's what it's all about
You know we're talking of love

Steve Hackett

, 1988. Brian sings some lead vocals, alongside Chris Thompson. Length 4:07.
Available on the album 'Feedback '86', and a USA CD version of 'Guitar Noir' as a bonus track.
Apparently a number of 'Work In Progress' versions are available, though I am not sure whether these have been officially released or not.
The track was re-recorded in 1992 for the 'Unauthorised Biography' album with Steve Hackett on vocals, and lasts 3:41. I don't know whether this second version features Brian or not, but it is unlikely.
1988 Version Lyrics:
Gimme a sign
You know about the future
Tell me the reason why you look oh so sad
Somewhere in time another premonition
Or is it the memory
Of what happened in the past

Cassandra - when you cry
Cassandra - a legend dies
Cassandra - stay the night
Cassandra - till sunrise

Open the door if you can brave the danger
Haven't you seen right now what lies ahead
Nobody listens till it's too late to change it
Or was it suspicion
No matter what you said

Cassandra - when you cry
Cassandra - a legend dies
Cassandra - stay the night
Cassandra - till sunrise
Cassandra - when you cry
Cassandra - a legend dies
Cassandra - stay the night
Cassandra - till sunrise
Cassandra

Cassandra

Cassandra - ohhh

Steve Hackett

, 1988. Brian co-produced the track and may play guitar. Length 3:36.
This track was released a bonus track on the 1992 album 'The Unauthorised Biography'.
According to the sleeve notes, Brian also worked on a track called 'Don't Fall In Love With Me', which is unreleased. Part of that song inspired this track, and the two worked on it together, but Brian left to work on other projects before it could be completed, leaving Steve to complete the track.
Lyrics:
Winds of change are blowing constantly
Watch the leaves that fall from every tree
Don't fall away from me

With your eyes you promise sanctuary
All that's left is mediocrity
Don't fall away
Don't fall away from me

Thoughts that run away, she'll be back some day for my love
Seeds that take the root, later they'll hold fruit
Show your love, please turn around

Evening falling on an unmade bed
Each new morning finds our love is dead
Don't fall away
Don't fall away from me

Thoughts that run away, she'll be back some day for my love
Seeds that take the root, later they'll hold fruit
Show your love, please turn around

Lyrics:
Dialogue: Would the lady care to dance?
Dialogue: Oh, yes, I'd love to


Oooooh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Gotta reach Atlantic City
I'm a winner every day
Blackjack holds no attraction
Just one game I play

Get a grip on the handle of steel
Pull slowly, watch the wheels
When you play with a slot machine
When you play with a slot machine

It's too tough don't back the anger
A black fever takes a hold on me
I play rough don't feel the danger
Won't give, baby nothing for free

I know the number I'm dreamin' of
It's just a symbol, a matter of luck

When you play with a slot machine
(Don't you know you play with my heart)
When you play with a slot machine
(You're gonna tear it apart)
When you play with a slot machine

Stay cool hold yourself together
Keep praying that your luck's gonna turn
Don't be a fool, don't stay forever
You know you're gonna get burned

When you play with a slot machine
When you play with a slot machine (oooh)
When you play with a slot machine
(Don't you know you play with my heart)
When you play with a slot machine
Oh, no, no

When you play with a slot machine
When you play with a slot machine
When you play with a slot machine

Lyrics:
When I lost faith to carry on
You were there when all hope was gone
I was drowning in my pride
You were still by my side
When others doubted, could not see
You still believed in me
Your love was an open door
What I'd been looking for
You gave me all you had to give
A reason now to live
I know it's crazy but it's true
Oh, how I love you

Love's a word that's kicked around
Too many times it lets you down
You see, your love is safe with me

A whole lotta love and tenderness
Heart and soul, all I possess
I was born
Born to love you

A whole lotta love and tenderness
Heart and soul, all I possess
I was born
Born to love you

I was a prisoner now of dreams
They are never all they seem
Lost in a fool's paradise
Till you came into my life
All the heartache and the pain
I will face it all again
It's true
Oh God, how I love you

A whole lotta love and tenderness
Heart and soul, all I possess
I was born
Born to love you

A whole lotta love and tenderness
Heart and soul, all I possess
I was born
Born to love you

You gave me all you had to give
A reason now to live
I'm crazy but it's true
How I love you

Love's a word that's kicked around
Too many times it lets you down
You see, your love is safe with me

A whole lotta love and tenderness
Heart and soul, all I possess
I was born
Born to love you

A whole lotta love and tenderness
Heart and soul, all I possess
I was born
I was born to love you (born to love you)
I know it's crazy but it's true

A whole lotta love and tenderness
Heart and soul, all I possess
You were there when I needed you most (I was born)
Born to love you
It's a whole lotta love

A whole lotta love and tenderness
Heart and soul, all I possess
I was born
Born to love you
(Through all the heartache and the pain)

A whole lotta love and tenderness
I will face it all with you (heart and soul, all I possess)
Hey yeah (I was born)
Born to love you
I was born to love you

A whole lotta love

Lyrics:
Something I wanna say
Got to say it, got to say it anyway
Love can you lie, spin you round
Break your heart and shoot you down

When we make love, you never speak
When passion's gone, you just wanna sleep
You dance the dance, so many times
I still can see what's on your mind

I can't take another day
Got to face it, won't go away
We can't pretend
Is this the end?

What about love? You're out of my life
What about love? No more lonely nights
What about love? No more the fool you see
What about love? I'm breaking free

You take it all, I'm in deep
What do you get, the secrets that you keep
Lost the tune, forgot the song
All yourself, can't you see something's wrong?

You've played me out, played it cool
This boy is back, I ain't playing by the rules
Love can lie, spin you round
Break your heart
Break your heart and shoot you down

I can't take another day
Got to face it, won't go away
We can't pretend
Is this the end?

What about love? You're out of my life
What about love? No more lonely nights
What about love? No more the fool you see
What about love? I'm breaking free

I can't take another day
Got to face it, won't go away
We can't pretend
Is this the end?

What about love? You're out of my life
What about love? No more lonely nights
What about love? No more the fool you see
What about love? I'm breaking free

What about love? You're out of my life
What about love? No more lonely nights
What about love? No more the fool you see
What about love? I'm breaking free

What about love?
What about love?
What about love?
What about love?
What about love?
What about love?
