I'm taking my ride with destiny
Willing to play my part
Living with painful memories
Loving with all my heart

Made in heaven, made in heaven
It was all meant to be, yeah
Made in heaven, made in heaven
That's what they say
Can't you see
That's what everybody says to me
Can't you see
Oh I know, I know, I know that it's true
Yes, it's really meant to be
Deep in my heart

I'm having to learn to pay the price
They're turning me upside down
Waiting for possibilities
Don't see too many around

Made in heaven, yes, made in heaven
It's for all to see
Made in heaven, made in heaven
That's what everybody says
Everybody says to me
It was really meant to be
Oh, can't you see
Yeah, everybody, everybody says
Yes, it was meant to be, yeah, yeah

When stormy weather comes around
It was made in heaven
When sunny skies break through behind the clouds
I wish it could last forever, yeah, yeah
Wish it could last forever, forever, oooh
Made in heaven

I'm playing my role in history
Looking to find my goal
Taking in all this misery
But giving it all my soul

Made in heaven, made in heaven
It was all meant to be, yeah
Made in heaven, made in heaven
That's what everybody says
Wait and see
It was really meant to be
So plain to see, yeah
Everybody, everybody, everybody tells me so
Yes, it was plain to see
Yes, it was meant to be
Written in the stars

An amazing feeling - coming through

I was born to love you
With every single beat of my heart
Yes, I was born to take care of you
Every single day of my life

You are the one for me
I am the man for you
You were made for me
You're my ecstasy
If I was given every opportunity
I'd kill for your love, hey

So take a chance with me
Let me romance with you
I'm caught in a dream
And my dream's come true
So hard to believe
This is happening to me
An amazing feeling
Comin' through

A little bit of sunshine to my life

I wanna be your kind of lover
Give a little bit of feeling
Just a little bit of feeling
Add a little bit of meaning to my life

I wanna boogie down with you, brother
Boogie down with the bassman
Win love on the grandslam
I'll be there waiting when you call
Ba, dap, ba, daa
Ba, dap, ba, daa

Just step right into my heart
Come a little closer
Don't tell me that it's over
Make a brand new start
We can work it out just next to nothing (your kind of lover)
Work it out, work it out just next to nothing
With feeling, with feeling, with feeling, with feeling

We can work it out
Let me show what I can do
I can be your kind of lover
We can work it out (work it out)
Let me show what I can do
I can be your kind of lover

I wanna be your kind of mother
Let's talk about loving right
Don't talk about doing wrong
Put a little bit of sense into your mind
We gotta talk it out man to man
Make each other understand
Right now a little happiness would be fine

Lyrics:
I want to gaze into your eyes and see the fire in them glow
But it's the same old story
Want you to melt inside my arms like falling rain upon the snow
But you say no, you say no
Want you to help me though deep waters when my ship is in a storm
Want you to give me all the power like a king on his throne
But you don't care, you don't care
History repeats itself, I seem to be all by myself again

Come into my life, it's a man made paradise
Come into my life, it's a man made paradise
Come into my life, it's a man made paradise
Come into my life, it's a man made paradise, paradise

One day I'll look into your mind and understand which way to go
But it's the same old story
When you refuse me all the time I'm suicidal on my own
But you don't know, you don't know
I want to be beside you now, lie in the sand and kiss your brow
I want to fly beyond the moon and do the things we do for love
But you don't care, you don't care
History repeats itself, I seem to be all by myself again

Come into my life, it's a man made paradise
Come into my life, it's a man made paradise
Come into my life, it's a man made paradise
Come into my life, it's a man made paradise, paradise

I want to be beside you now, lie in the sand and kiss your brow
I want to fly beyond the moon and do the things we do for love
But you say no, you say no
History repeats itself, I seem to be all by myself again


(Improvised vocal outro)

Lyrics:
There must be more to life than this
There must be more to life than this
How do we cope in a world without love
Mending all those broken hearts
And tending to those crying faces

There must be more to life than living
There must be more than meets the eye
Why should it be just a case of black or white
There must be more to life than this

Why is this world so full of hate
People dying everywhere
And we destroy what we create
People fighting for their human rights
But we just go on saying c'est la vie
So this is life

There must be more to life than killing
A better way for us to survive
What good is life, if in the end we all must die
There must be more to life than this

There must be more to life than this
There must be more to life than this
I live in hope for a world filled with love
Then we can all just live in peace

There must be more to life, much more to life
There must be more to life, more to life than this

You had to kill the conversation
You always had the upper hand
Got caught in love and stepped in sinking sand (sand, sand)
You had to go and ruin all our plans

Packed your bags and you're leaving home
Got a one way ticket and you're all set to go
But we have one more day together, so

Love me like there's no tomorrow
Hold me in your arms, tell me you mean it
This is our last goodbye and very soon it will be over
But today just love me like there's no tomorrow

I guess we drift alone in separate ways
I don't have all that far to go
God knows, I've learnt to play the lonely man
I've never felt so low in all my life

We were born to be just losers
So I guess there's a limit on how far we go
But we only have one more day together, so (oooh, ooh, oooh, ooooh)

Love me like there's no tomorrow
Hold me in your arms, tell me you mean it
This is our last goodbye and very soon it will be over
But today just love me like there's no tomorrow

Tomorrow - God knows just where I'll be
Tomorrow - who knows just what's in store for me
Anything can happen but we only have one more day together, yeah (oooohhh)
Just one more day forever, so (ooooh, ah, ah, ah, ahh)

Love me like there's no tomorrow
Hold me in your arms, tell me you mean it
This is our last goodbye and very soon it will be over
But today just love me like there's no tomorrow

So love me like there's no tomorrow
Hold me in your arms, tell me you mean it
This is our last goodbye and very soon it will be over
But today just love me like there's no tomorrow
