She Goes Nana - The Radios [Kostian]

She's like a rainbow
Sways while she glows
Moves like a river
Turns while she flows     Uuh yeah

And then she steels your heart away
She's taking it all someday I'll make her mine    yeah
You look into her angel eyes
The cherry red sun will rise and love will shine

CHORUS
When she goes nana nana
Colours will keep on turning
Shimmering by like a rain butterfly
Cruising the blue blue sky

Oh she
Shines like a flower
Fades while she grows     Uuh yeah

And then she wipes your tears away
She's holding your hand someday like lovers do     uuhhh
You hesitate another while
She's showing her magic smile and dreams come true

CHORUS

She's on the run
Flies on and on
She's cruising the sky my friend
And in the end she goes
She goes nanana

Nana nana nana nana
Colours will keep on turning
Shimmering by like a rain butterfly
Cruising the blue blue sky

Don't Play That Song - Aretha Franklin [Megan]

Don’t play that song for me
'Cuz it brings back memories
Of the days that I once knew
And all the days that I spent with you

Oh no, don’t let it play (oh no)
It fills my heart with pain (it hurts)
Please stop it right away
'Cause I remember just what it said
It said darling (darling I)
You know that ya lied (darling I)
Boy, ya know that ya lied (darling I)
You know that ya lied (ya lied) ya lied (ya lied) ya lied
I remember on our first date
You kissed me then you walked away
And I was only 17
And I never dreamed that he could be so mean

Oh darling (darlin...oh no)
Don’t ya play it no more (play it no more)
Don’t you dare play that song (don’t play it no more)
oooo oooo oooo oh no (ya lie, ya lie) YA LIE...

Unchained Melody - Righteous Brothers [Nick]

(Chorus)
Oh my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea, yeah
Lonely rivers sigh 'Wait for me, wait for me'
I'll be coming home, wait for me

(Chorus)
Oh my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love to me

Think Twice - Celine Dion [Lianne]

Don’t think I can’t feel there’s something wrong
You’ve been the sweetest part of my life so long
I look in your eyes, there’s a distant light
And you and I know there’ll be a storm tonight
This is getting serious
Are you thinking ’bout you or us

(chorus)
Don’t say what you’re about to say
Look back before you leave my life
Be sure before you close that door
Before you roll those dice
Baby think twice

Baby think twice for the sake of our love, for the memory
For the fire and the faith that was you and me
Baby I know it ain’t easy when your soul cries out for a higher ground
’coz when you’re halfway up, you’re always halfway down
But baby this is serious
Are you thinking ’bout you or us

(repeat first chorus)

(breakdown)
Baby this is serious
Are you thinking ’bout you or us

Don’t say what you’re about to say
Look back before you leave my life
Be sure before you close that door
Before you roll those dice

Don’t do what you’re about to do
My everything depends on you
And whatever it takes, I’ll sacrifice
Before you roll those dice
Baby think twice

Beyond Gravity - Ilse De Lange [Merel]

The only thing that keeps me down in gravity
Without it I might fly around
Above life’s raging sea

You've released my soul
You've let my spirit go
So I can be
The untied melody
A sun that rises
From my heart
Through these lips
Back to you

(chorus)

Beyond gravity
Lifting me
Up above the clouds
And if we ever fall
We'll come to rest
Above the raging sea
And beyond gravity

I'm a picture made of broken things
A fallen feathers from an angel's wings
The shattered pieces of my past
Are held together like stained glass
And as your love shines through me
I reach out for the colours of you
So I can be, the untied melody
A song that rises from my heart
Through these lips
Back to you

(chorus)

And if we ever fall
We'll come to rest
Above the raging sea (above the raging sea)
And above gravity

A Different Corner Ė George Michael [Robin]

I'd say love was a magical thing
I'd say love would keep us from pain
Had I been there, had I been there

I would promise you all of my life
But to lose you would cut like a knife
So I don't dare, no I don't dare

'Cause I've never come close in all of these years
You are the only one to stop my tears
And I'm so scared, I'm so scared

Take me back in time maybe I can forget
Turn a different corner and we never would have met
Would you care

I don't understand it, for you it's a breeze
Little by little you've brought me to my knees
Don't you care

No I've never come close in all of these years
You are the only one to stop my tears
I'm so scared of this love

And if all that there is, is this fear of being used
I should go back to being lonely and confused
If I could, I would, I swear

Foolish Games - Jewel [Hedwig]

You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
You were always crazy like that
I watched from my window,
Always felt I was outside looking in on you

You were always the mysterious one
With dark eyes and careless hair,
You were fashionably sensitive, but too cool to care
Then you stood in my doorway, with nothing to say
Besides some comment on the weather

Well in case you failed to notice,
In case you failed to see,
This is my heart bleeding before you,
This is me down on my knees

CHORUS:
These foolish games are tearing me apart
You thoughtless words are breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart

You were always brilliant in the morning
Smoking you cigarettes, talking over coffee
Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you,
You loved Mozart and you'd speak of your loved ones
As I clumsily strummed my guitar
You'd teach me of honest things
Things that were daring, things that were clean
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean

So I hid my soiled hands behind my back
Somewhere along the line I must've gone off track with you
Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else
Somebody who gave a damn,
Somebody more like myself

REPEAT CHORUS

You took your coat off and stood in the rain
You were always like that

All My Life - KC & Jojo [JK]

I prayed for someone like you
And I thank God
That I that I finally found you
