In this crazy world
You can prove that you can make it
If you're strong enough to take it
Still there will be times
When you find this life you're livin'
Is just takin' all your givin'

When you need someone to run to
The shelter of my love is always near
Let me be your cover, whenever darkness falls
I'll be there, I'll be there

CHORUS
Till the end of the line
You can count on me baby, call me any time
When the night is fallin' hard
Come on out of the rain and into my arms
Run to me, to a love that's safe and warm
I'll be yours baby, your safe place fro the storm

People in this world
Can be blind and so demanding
Show so little understanding
And in these desperate times
Seems like everything's deceivin'
There ain't much we can believe in

Let me be the one you come to
Show you one thing, trust is always here
Let me be your cover, whenever darkness falls
I'll be there, I'll be there

CHORUS
(Run to me) When those cold and troubled winds have found you
(Come to me) And I'll wrap my world of love around you
I'll be your flame burnin' bright
Be the sunlight in your day
That'll take you through the night baby

Till the end of the line
You can count on me baby, call me any time
When the night is fallin' hard
Come on out of the rain and into my arms
Run to me, to a love that's safe and warm
I'll be yours baby, your safe place
I'll be yours baby, your safe place
I'll be yours baby, your safe place from the storm
I'll be your safe place from the storm

. . .



I've got this somethin' to tell you
There ain't no doubt in my mind
All I'm askin' is to keep you near forever
Just till the end of time

Baby I know where love grows
My heart is overflowin'
You're so fine and so true
I wanna spend my time, spendin' time with you, baby

I've got the best of love
With every breath and every beat of my heart
You know you've got me by my deepest emotion
'Cause you keep givin' me the best of love

Passion and sweet inspiration
So rare and so hard to find
You are my journey and my destination
Queen of this heart of mine

Baby I know where love grows
In my life it's overflowin'
You're so fine and it's so true
I know I've got it all, all because of you, baby

I've got the best of love
With every breath and every beat of my heart
You know ya reach into my deepest emotion
And you keep givin' me, the best of love

With every moment that passes by
This love goes on
It keeps growin' stronger
And the more we're together
The best keeps gettin' better, baby

I've got the best of love
With every breath and every beat of my heart
You know you're down inside my deepest emotion
So just keep givin' me, the best of love

I've got the best of love
With every breath and every beat of my heart
Ain't nothin' finer than that sweetest emotion
Just keep givin' me, just keep on givin' me
The best of love, best of love, best of love

. . .



Everybody's lookin' for a happy ending
Before the real story even begins
It's so easy to pretend you're not pretending
Till the naked truth comes walkin' on in

But we ain't runnin' when the truth gets hot
That's how ya find out just how much you've really got

CHORUS
Let's make a long story longer
Let's make this strong love a little bit stronger
Our star is gonna shine, shine even brighter
Believe what we feel, keep it real
Make a long story longer

The seed of love is so deeply planted
Inside the heart is where it lives and grows
We'll keep it safe 'cause we don't take it for granted
Let the hard rains fall, let the cold wind blow

Every storm is just a lesson to learn
Just bring us closer with every page we turn baby

CHORUS
Ya gotta stand the test of time
If ya wanna keep the treasure you find
Some can only dream about forever
But look at us baby, we're creatin' it together

CHORUS
Let's make a long story longer
Let's make this strong love a little bit stronger
Baby, live what we feel, keep it real
Make a long story longer
Let's make a long story longer

. . .



A hundred times I have walked out the door
Just to walk back a hundred times more
A thousand nights I have sworn not to stay, ooh oh
I remained tangles in the chains of desire, ooh
I know that it's no good
I shouldn't be here
I know I should leave you

CHORUS
Shouldn't let you close to me
Shouldn't have this hold on me
No I shouldn't be so weak
But a heart can only be so strong
Every time I try to go
Just one look in your eyes I know
That a heart can only be so strong
A heart can only be so strong

A hundred ways you have captured my soul
I can't hold on but I can't let go
Your spell on me is a spell I can't break, ooh oh
All my strength burning in the flames of desire, ooh
I don't wanna stay here
I don't wanna leave you
Don't know how to leave you

CHORUS
Wo, so strong, oh
I can't let go oh no
Wo, so strong, wo, so strong
'Cause you're a part of my soul
And I, can't escape you
No matter how hard I try
I can never be free
Of your hold on me
I can't let go

A hundred times I have walked out the door
Just to walk back a hundred times more

CHORUS
Shouldn't let you close to me
Shouldn't have this hold on me
But a heart can only be so strong
Every time I try to go
Just one look in your eyes I know
That a heart can only be so strong
A heart can only be so strong
A heart can only be so strong

. . .



Angels heard me callin'
Saw the mountains crumble
Fell in love with the wind
And all the time I spent
Dreamin' of you
And all the love we made
But I never knew I found you

CHORUS
I can feel love fallin', fallin'
I can see it comin', hey
'Cause heaven sent you down to me
Heaven sent you down

Oceans re conforming
To pave the way before me
Revealing your flawless aura
I saw your wings unveil, inviting to me
A world of love
But I wasn't even looking for ya baby

CHORUS
You became rain in the air
When you appeared to me
Like a love mystery, feels so real to me
'Cause you came from heaven
Sent down straight to me
And there's not another that ya can love
Oh I can feel it fallin'

CHORUS

. . .



How in the hell did this begin
Like some cruel game we can't seem to win
It just goes on over and over again

It took the best outta you and me
I thought we swore we'd let this love rest in peace
Am I wrong
Didn't we part as friends

How many lifetimes must we live through
Till we're lookin' through the eyes of the truth

CHORUS
We are joined at the soul
With a heart that don't know how to let go
What does it mean when it don't mean a thing
When we say good-bye
But if life is unkind
And forever ain't a place we can find
We'll know how we've tried
And that forever's just a matter of time

So much love, so much pain
No one to judge, no one to blame
It holds on
How desperate this need that remains

We know the passion that leads us blind
'Cause the two of us are one of a kind

CHORUS
Time after time we stumble and fall
Past the point of no return
God knows we've given so much more than our all
To this lesson we may never learn

CHORUS

. . .



When the rain is fallin' and I'm overcome
With the doubts and demons of a love undone
No voice need tell me that you were the one

CHORUS
Oh I'll remember all my life
A love that set me free
Whatever comes of you and I
I will still believe
That once upon a time a dream came true
Whenever I remember loving you

Not a single moment, not a single kiss
Would I have traded, would I have missed
No other could ever move me like this

CHORUS
It's not that I don't feel the pain as deep as pain can be
But I will not be denied the light
Your love has brought to me
What you've given me will last forever
I refuse to lose the treasure
Of you inside my heart eternally

CHORUS
I'll always feel the love we once knew
As long as I remember loving you

Oh I'll remember loving you
Oh I'll remember all my life

. . .



You can't deny it
When that once in your life
Comes that one of a kind

Once she's inside it
She can shake up your heart
She can make up your mind

Everything in your life will change
When your love is your best friend
My advice to you is make no mistake
If ya never want this feelin' to end

CHORUS
Show her the way she makes you love her
Show her the way she makes you feel
Let your emotions roll like thunder
You gotta let her know
You'll never let her go
Show her the way

Now love is for dreamers
Funny thing about dreams
Any moment they're gone
And love is the teacher
About makin' it last, about keepin' it strong

Promise the moon and stars
Swear the best is yet to come
But promises are not what it takes
To keep the flame forever young

All you really need to show
Is everything she needs to know

CHORUS X2
Show her, gotta show her, just show her the way(X3)
Show her the way

. . .



I wake up while you lie sleepin'
I take one look at you and wonder
Am I still dreamin'
Are you some kind of angel
Come down to save me
Or just some place my imagination's tryin' to take me
What have I done to deserve what I feel
You give me somethin' that's too good to be real
How does a treasure like you fall into my hands
I need to know just one thing
I still don't understand

CHORUS
Why do you love me
Why do you give so much
How do you heal the pain within me
Is it the power of your touch
Now that you've opened up the heavens
For this heart of mine to see
I've become the richest man that I could ever be
Baby why, baby why me
Why me, Why me

I ain't got a clue, maybe just a notion
Sometimes I'm helplessly adrift out in the ocean
I feel like a child with one sole intention
In search of an answer that defies all comprehension

I'm in too deep but that's what you're all about
Got no hope or desire of finding my way out
How does a treasure like you fall into my hands
I need to know that one thing
Can ya help me understand

CHORUS X2
Why do you love me
Why do you give so much
How do you heal the pain within me
Is it the power of your touch
Now that you've opened up the heavens
For this heart of mine to see
I've become the richest man that I could ever be
Baby why, baby why me

Could've been anyone in this world, why me
Every lesson that I've learned
You've come to me and shown me
What it means to be loved(X2)

CHORUS X2
Why me, why me, why me, why me
Help me understand just what you've done to me
'Cause I'm the richest man that I could ever be

. . .

Can't Get Close Enough To You

[No lyrics]

. . .



We've got the power, we've got the hunger for the search
As we race across the heavens to embrace the universe
In this hour and in truth what is it worth
When we can't escape the madness
We've created on this earth

They say that money talks but you and I
Know places money just don't say enough

Let there be love where there is emptiness
Let there be faith where hope is gone
Let there be strength where there is helplessness
And open eyes to see right from wrong
We've gotta find a way to trust
The very best in all of us
Let there be love, let there be love

We live divided behind imaginary walls
Brother against brother, we just watch each other fall
With hearts united we will never stand so tall
Reachin' out to one another
We'll find the meaning of it all

Ain't one power we will ever know
Could ever heal the poverty of the soul

Let there be love where there is emptiness
Let there be faith where hope is gone
Let there be strength where there is helplessness
And open eyes to see right from wrong
We've gotta find a way to trust
To forgive and rise above
Let there be love, let there be love

BRIDGE
(When will we learn, tell me when will we see)
How many more promises spoken
While the dreams of the innocent die
Every day another heart gets broken
While the flame of hate survives
When will the healing begin in our lives

Let there be love where there is emptiness
Let there be faith where hope is gone
Let there be strength where there is helplessness
And open eyes to see right from wrong
We've gotta find a way to trust
The very best in all of us
Gotta be more than wise enough
To forgive and rise above
Let there be love, let there be love

. . .



You pull me in, then ya push me away
Ask me leave, then ya beg me to stay
Bend me baby, bend me till I break
Do you really wanna know how much
This heart of mine can take
When I find myself in a daze sometimes
Lovin' you has got me losin' my mind

CHORUS
Is it pleasure or pain
Keeps me runnin', keeps me runnin' to you
Pleasure or pain
I just can't decide
Are they one and the same
It's confusing me blind
Am I in love or insane
Am I in it for the pleasure or pain

Ya make me smile
Make me thankful that I breathe
Let me taste some heaven
Before ya drop me to my knees
Ya chain me baby, till it's time to set me free
Give me everything I want
Give me nothin' that I need

Well I ask myself why I keep holdin' on
Lovin' you is just a weakness too strong

CHORUS
I still don't understand why I can't resist
What keeps me comin' back, comin' back for more of this
Pleasure or pain
Keeps me runnin', keeps me runnin' to you
Pleasure or pain
I just can't decide
Are they one and the same
It's confusing me blind
Am I in love or insane
Am I in it for the pleasure or pain

Keeps me runnin', keeps me running to you
I just can't decide
Are they one and the same
It's confusing me blind
Am I in love or insane
Am I in it for the pleasure or pain

. . .



I have often dreamed, of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome, would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer, when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying, this is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday, I can go the distance
I will find my way, if I can be strong
I know ev'ry mile, will be worth my while
When I go the distance, I'll be right where I belong

Down an unknown road, to embrace my fate
Though that road may wander, it will lead me to you
And a thousand years, would be worth the wait
It might take a lifetime, but somehow I'll see it through

And I won't look back, I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track, no, I won't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope, but I won't lose hope
Till I go the distance, and my journey is complete

But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is measured by his heart

Like a shooting star, I will go the distance
I will search the world, I will face its' harms
I don't care how far, I can go the distance
Till I find my hero's welcome, waiting in your arms

I will search the world, I will face its harms
Till I find my hero's welcome, waiting in your arms

. . .



All of this time
I've been tellin' myself the truth
I love you
And that's the easiest thing to do, yeah
How do I describe
How ya turn my world around
Ain't no wonder why those words
Are those ones I've never found
Oh girl, there's so much I mean to say
And I'll keep tryin'
Till I finally find a way

CHORUS
When we make love
Heart to heart
Speak from our souls
We come shinin' through the dark
We reach the stars
Still by far the deepest part
Is (are) the moment(s) when the tears begin to fall
When there really are no words
That's when we say it all

And how many times when you're lyin' close to me
Have ya shown me baby
How much in life don't really mean a thing
All that matters and in all the world remain
Is your love and all ya mean to say
And then hey baby, the heaven in your eyes
Is all I see that means everything to me

CHORUS
There's a power in the silence
Where the truth is just too much
There's a place of pure emotion
Words were never meant to touch

CHORUS
When there are no words
That's when we say it
'Cause there are no words
When we say it
There are no words
