all America lyrics



We Got All Night
You can take your time
I'll be takin' mine
We don't have to hurry

Let the world go by
Tonight it's you and i
Feelin' others slowly

And though a simple touch
Can mean so much
Says all you need to know

We got all night
We got from sundown to sunrise
So don't let go, just hold me baby
We got all night
Let's make it last forever
Take it nice and slow
We got all night

It's so good to know
You don't have to go
Stay until tomorrow

Lying side by side
Feel the senses slide
Let your feelings follow

'cause tonight is ours
And through the hours
Love goes on and on

We got all night
We got from sundown to sunrise
So don't let go, just hold me baby
We got all night
Let's make it last forever
Take it nice and slow
We got all night

Feels like we waited a lifetime
To be alone tonight
So make it hard to forget you
'cause we don't know when
We can do it again

We got all night
We got from sundown to sunrise
So don't let go, just hold me baby
We got all night
Let's make it last forever
Take it nice and slow

All night
All night

We got all night
We got from sundown to sunrise
So don't let go, just hold me baby
We got all night
Let's make it last forever
Take it nice and slow

We got all night
We got from sundown to sunrise
So don't let go, just hold me baby
We got all night
Let's make it last forever
Take it nice and slow ...back to top
See How the Love Goes
Written by sue shifrin and terry britten, ©1982
Found on perspective.

I can hear somebody knockin'
On my bedroom door
I find it rather shockin'
It's my best friend's girl

(oo) imagine my surprise
There's a hungry look in her eyes
See how the love goes
Anybody here know how the love goes

She said, I'm feelin' kinda lonely
And only you will do
Would you like to get to know me
Like I wanna know you

(oo) no tellin' what a man will do
Face to face with a woman like you
See how the love goes
Anybody here know how the love goes
Oh yea, see how the love goes

I can hear her calling (calling)
But no one understands her (no one understands)
Beggin' me to let her in
And she's waiting for my answer

Should I open up the door
And let trouble walk in
Should I resist her even more
Or tell her, come on in

(oo) no tellin' what a man will do
Face to face with a woman like you
See how the love goes
Anybody here know how the love goes
Oh yea, see how the love goes
Anybody here know how the love goes
Oh yea, see how the love goes
Anybody here know how the love goesback to top
Special Girl
Written by e. schwartz and d. tyson, ©1984
Found on perspective and highway.

Into each life a little sunlight wants to shine
Let me tell you, a fortune like that once was mine

She was a special girl
She meant the world to me
I gave her everything

When I found her I'd been looking everywhere
When I lost her I was lost beyond despair

She was a special girl
She meant the world to me
I gave her everything

Dreams are hard to take (dreams are hard to take)
Could it be I loved her too much

Oo, a special girl
Oo, a special girl
She was a special girl

She was a special girl
She meant the world to me
I gave her everything

Bottom line is, she was fine in every way
And it's not with hesitation that I say

She was a special girl
She meant the world to me
And I gave her everything

Dreams they come and go (dreams they come and go)
But thoughts of her are like a floor show

Oo, a special girl
Oo, a special girl
She was a special girl

She was a special girl
She meant the world to me
I gave her everythingback to top
5th Avenue
Written by gerry beckley, ©1984
Found on perspective.

Walking down 5th avenue
I saw him walking there with you
People see and people talk
Word travels fast round my block

Might just save you the price of writing
I could save you an hour or two
Walking down 5th avenue
Walking down 5th avenue

Don't know what to ask of you
My mind is gettin' so confused
Even when I really try
Keeps sounding like I'm saying goodbye

Somewhere deep in my heart I'm hurtin'
'cause I keep on remembering you
Walking down 5th avenue
Walking down 5th avenue
Such a long way to go

How many times must I look up and say
What kind of fool am i
But I can't turn my back on the times that we shared
No matter how I try

Walking down 5th avenue
Can't seem to shake the thought of you
Even in the dark of night
Your memories of shining light

Though I'm tryin' to change direction
I pray what I saw ain't true
Walking down 5th avenue
Walking down 5th avenue
Such a long way to go

Do, do, do, do ...back to top
(It's Like You) Never Left at All
Nobody can tell me I didn't try anything
I didn't know what to do to get over you
I tried magic and potions but I could not shake you loose
From my dreams, strange as it seems

It's like you never left at all
I guess I just can't forget you
It's like you never left at all
Somethin' inside me just won't let you go

Took a vacation for a month, maybe more
Made some new friends in places I've never been
But recuperation hasn't even yet begun
I'm still reachin' over for you when the morning comes

It's like you never left at all
I guess I just can't forget you
It's like you never left at all
Somethin' inside me just won't let you go

You're only illusion but you're standin' in my way
And you've got your life, it's a new life
But mine can't seem to change

It's like you never left at all
I guess I just can't forget you
It's like you never left at all
Somethin' inside me just won't let you go
Somethin' inside me just won't let you go
Somethin' inside me just won't let you goback to top
Stereo
Written by gerry beckley and jimmy webb, ©1984
Found on perspective.

Stereo
We hear both sides
We sympathize
We live our lives in stereo
The left and the right
The dark and the light
We wrestle with the balance
We change our tone
We leave our phone
And tape record our absence
In lovin' memory

Stereo
We're livin' it in stereo
We fix it so our love is high fidelity
Mix it so we never lose the melody
We try to equalize our lives in stereo

So on we go
From side to side
As we divide
A single life in stereo
The far and the wide
We override
The feedback from the others
The unkind phrase
We lock in phase
We're only really listening to the stereo

Stereo
We're livin' it in stereo
We tune it till we have a perfect parody
Commune with such a fine-cut, crystal clarity
It seems to symbolize
Our lives in stereo

Oo (la, la, la, la, la, la), yeah, yeah, yeah
Oo (la, la, la, la, la, la), yeah, yeah, yeah
Oo (la, la, la, la-a)

Stereo
Stereo
We fix it so our love is high fidelity
Mix it so we never lose the melody
We try to equalize our lives in stereo

We fix it so our love is high fidelity
Mix it so we never lose the melody

Lady With a Bluebird
Written by dewey bunnell, bill mumy, and robert haimer, ©1984
Found on perspective, premium gold collection, and centenary collection.

She came out of the blue and into my world
She came out of the blue and into my world
I went out of my head over you

She was a lady with a bluebird sleepin' in her chair
She was dreamin' 'bout a girlfriend and wishing she was there
She was a lady with a bluebird

Under the bridge I saw mercury flow
Between me and you and a fine tooth comb
She came out of the blue and into my world

She was a lady with a bluebird sleepin' in her chair
She was dreamin' 'bout a girlfriend and wishing she was there
She was a lady with a bluebird

I close my eyes, I still see blue
I hear her voice, I'll wait for you
I still see blue

She came out of the blue and into my world
Oh, she came out of the blue and into my world
She was a lady with a bluebird sleepin' in her chair
She was dreamin' 'bout a girlfriend and wishing she was there

Cinderella
Written by j. kimball and d. vidal, ©1984
Found on perspective.

I was out last night having a ball
And comin' home, I wasn't thinkin' nothin' at all
And there on the sidewalk what did I see
A little glass slipper starin' back at me
Cinderella (cinderella)

Well I'm not superstitious but I'm smarter than I seem
And I knew it was love, if you know what I mean
When I saw that slipper it occurred to me
The shoe fit her and she fit me
Cinderella (cinderella)
Cinderella (cinderella)

When I find her it will be
A fairy tale for her and me
I will never let her go
Cinderella

Now the other girls hold no fascination for me
I just think of her wherever she may be
I will search my whole life through
'cause no one else will ever do
Cinderella (cinderella)
Cinderella (cinderella)

When I find her it will be
A fairy tale for her and me
I will never let her go
She will give my heart a home
Until that day I'll be alone
With just a slipper and a dream
Cinderella (cinderella)

Unconditional Love
Written by gerry beckley, ©1984
Found on perspective.

Unconditional love
Unconditional fear
Unconditional support
In your time of need
Oo, it's unconditionally true
Oo, it's unconditionally me
Unconditionally you

It's a spiritual world
When the darkness comes
But you gotta hold your head up
Hold your head up high
Oo, you got to take a look around
Oo, and listen when you hear the sound
Unconditional love (love)

This is right, this I know
I found out, long time ago
Someday baby we'll get there I know, oh, oh

Unconditional love
Unconditional hope
Unconditional desire
To have it work out fine
Oo, it's unconditionally true
These things we're dreamin' of
Oo, it's unconditionally yours
Unconditional love (love)

Oo, it's unconditionally true
These things we're dreamin' of
Oo, it's unconditionally yours
Unconditional love (love)

Fallin' Off the World
Written by dewey bunnell and bill mumy, ©1984
Found on perspective.

Each time I call you I feel my heart beat
I want to be there walkin' up your street
It doesn't matter how far I travel
Crossin' the ocean, the golden gravel

I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you (do you believe)
I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you

Tomorrow's headline, read all about it
They caught the big one and I don't doubt it
Across the country they're paintin' stories
About our failures, about our glories

I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you (do you believe)
I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you

All of those screams of each other must share in the fight
Nobody knows where their clear spirit goes in the night

Out of the country it seems so easy
To keep believin' our dream of fiji
Your image lingers, a faded picture
Your past erased by untold elixir

I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you (do you believe)
I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you

All of those screams of each other must share in the fight
Nobody knows where their clear spirit goes in the night

I'm fallin' off the world
I'm callin' you (do you believe)
I'm fallin' off the worldback to top
