Love is like candy on a shelf
You want a taste, then help yourself
The sweetest things are there for you
Help yourself, take a few
That's what I want you to do

We're always told repeatedly
The very best in life is free
And if you want to prove it's true
Baby, I'm telling you
This is what you should do

Just help yourself to my lips, to my arms
Just say the word and they are yours
Just help yourself to the love in my heart
Your smile has opened up the door
The greatest wealth that exists in the world
Could never buy what I can give
Just help yourself to my lips, to my arms
And then let's really start to live

My heart has love enough for two
More than enough for me and you
I'm rich with love, a millionaire
I've so much, it's unfair
Why don't you take a share

Just help yourself to my lips, to my arms
Just say the word and they are yours
Just help yourself to the love in my heart
Your smile has opened up the door
The greatest wealth that exists in the world
Could never buy what I can give
So help yourself to my lips, to my arms
And then let's really start to live

Just help yourself to my lips, to my arms
Just say the word, and they are yours
Just help yourself to the love in my heart
Your smile has opened up the door

I Can't Break The News To Myself

[No lyrics]

. . .


I wake from trouble sleep
in the middle of the night
Reaching for the soft hand
that once held mine so tight
My fingers touch the pillow
where you once layed your head
And I run my hand down
the cold cold sheets
on your side of the bed
My head spins from
the perfume
that lingers every place
And I kiss the trace
of lipstick
left on your pillow case
And here in this nightmare
of darkness
I remember the day we wed
And I clutch and tear
at the tear stained sheets

on my side of the bed
My arms long to hold you
my lips hunger for your kiss
And I just couldn't
stand to go through
another lonely night like this
These hands that once
coressed you
take a bottle from the drawer
It says take one for sleeping
but I'm taking many more
What good is there
in living if the dreams
we shed are dead
So now at last
I lay me down to sleep
on you side of the bed

There was time when your hand
reached for mine
And a moment apart would mean
breaking your heart
Now you're out of my arms
And we're strangers again
Is it this easy then, for a real love to end
Oh, please...turn your back...
walk away from me
I didn't dream you'd cry
I'm standing here as I've set you free
And all I can say is goodbye
I've tried everything but we must go away
If we talk anymore...we may never be sure
So don't look in my eyes
For you'll see that it shows
I still love you, you know,
But I must let you go
Oh, please...turn your back
Walk away from me
I didn't dream you'd cry
I'm standing here as I've set you free
And all I can say is goodbye
Ohhh, please... turn your back...
Walk away from me
I didn't dream you'd cry
I'm standing here as I've set you free
And all I can say is goodbye..........

Words and music by Tom Jones

(Now people you know who I am,
And you know what I can do,
But I got a problem now and I'm gonna tell you about it,
I'm looking for this woman, y'see,
Listen, this is the way the story goes)

Looking out my window
Looking at the rain
Nothing left but pain
Why'd you go and leave me
Sad alone and blue
Looking out my window woman
Tryin' to find you

Why did you leave me?
Why did you grieve me?

Looking out my window
What do I see?
Nobody's crying
Half as bad as me
I don't think that they feel
So alone and blue
Looking out my window baby
Trying to find you

Why did you leave me?
Why did you grieve me?

I'd like to tell you about
This little girl that left
Me so alone and blue
The trouble is if I paint the
Picture too well you
Might fall in love with her too
She was about 5'6
A little bag of tricks
My mama told me to watch myself but I didn't listen
Because for you baby I'd scratch out my eye

Looking out my window
Down the railroad track
Waiting for that little brown eyed girl
She's coming back
I gotta hear that whistle blowing
Down the line
Come back girl
She'll be mine, oh mine

Why did you leave me?
Why did you grieve me?

Woah

Baby come on home
I'm so alone
Y'know I don't care what the world might say
I'm gonna love you
Oh baby

I'm down on my knees
And I'm beggin' you please
Ah

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,

I love you, I love you

Come on home, come on home baby, come on home baby, come on home baby, to me.

. . .


I watch the leaves falling to the ground
I'm walking up and down
The streets of my hometown
You're here with me like it used to be
I look around and then
I'm on my own again
Can't stop loving you
Can't stop wanting you
Can't stop now that you
Made me part of you
I've heard some people say
I'm dreaming my life away
But what else can I do
Can't stop loving you
Your face I see in my memory
I close my eyes and then
I start to live again
You're holding me like it used to be

I open my eyes and then
I'm on my own again
Can't stop loving you
Can't stop wanting you
Can't stop now that you
Made me part of you
I've heard some people say
I'm dreaming my life away
But what else can I do
Can't stop loving you
Can't stop loving you
Can't stop wanting you
Can't stop feeling blue
Can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
Oh I can't I can't I can't.......

Let There Be Love

[No lyrics]

. . .


I awakened this morning, I was filled with despair
All my dreams turned to ashes and gone, oh yeah
As I looked at my life it was barren and bare
Without love I've had nothing at all
Without love I've had nothing
Without love I've had nothing at all
I have conquered the world
All but one thing did I have
Without love I've had nothing at all

Once I had a sweetheart who loved only me
There was nothing, oh that she would not give, oh no
But I was blind to her goodness and I could not see
That a heart without love cannot live
Without love I've had nothing
Without love I've had nothing at all
I have conquered the world
All but one thing did I have
Without love I've had nothing at all
