SIDE A

1. This Love


This love lies beside me till the dawn This love lifts me up just like a song This love is a sonnet whispered on and on and on And for all of history, when the people long to see Just how sweet a love can be, they'll look back to you and me And this love This love touches lightly on my sleeve This love burns bright as autumn leaves This love blows around me like a warm and bashful breeze And for all of history, when the people long to see Just how sweet a love can be, they'll look back to you and me And this love Oh, I don't know how it ever came to be Like stars above and earth below, you're my eternity This love kisses all my broken ways This love glows through all my darkest days This love falls upon me like sunshine's sweetest rays And for all of history, when the people long to see Just how sweet a love can be, they'll look back to you and me And this love Yes this love Oh, this love This love This love




2. You Can't Hurt Me Anymore


Now that I've made myself comfortably numb It's plain as the nose on my face what you've done And you can't hurt me anymore I don't subscribe to your ludicrous ways I'm disconnected from your childlike days I'm over it I'm over the moon Cause you can't hurt me anymore The trees know, the sky knows It's all in the clouds, time to say it out loud I'm homeward bound, and feeling proud That you can't hurt me anymore I don't have no help for nobody who Don't have no help for me, ain't it true It's obvious Time to have a good time Cause you can't hurt me anymore




3. Trying Not to Fall in Love


Please don't smile your smile quite like that Please don't look so dapper with your dimples as we chat Please refrain from glowing like an angel descended from above I'm trying not to fall in love Please abstain from accidentally brushing my hand Please withhold the urge to look quite so grand Please don't make it so painfully clear we'd fit together like a glove I'm trying not to fall in love Your cooperation would be most appreciated If you'd ignore that the stars seem to know that we're fated Please resist my eyes calling you close Please pretend we're not dancing nose to nose Please forebear from feeling my heart flutter like the wings of a dove I'm trying not to fall in love Forgive my insistence, thanks for your sincere assistance But you impair my resistance and I'm trying Well, I'm trying not to fall in love




4. Happily Never After


Happily never after, you and me Never knew such love, such laughter, falling free Daring to dream till we had to wake My heart on a string till it had to break Now it's oh, so plain to see Happily never after was all we could be Happily never after, where did you go? My wondrous wildflower pasture, now covered in snow I couldn't believe it would ever end I shouldn't grieve but I can't pretend Now it's oh, so plain to see Happily never after was all we could be Some loves were never meant to last Sometimes forever has a funny way of falling into the past Happily never after, it's all that I know I'm oh, so lost without you, but still love you so Happy halcyon days, sinful and sublime Your sun's sweet rays, dappled and divine These memories won't set me free Cause happily never after was all we could be Happily never after, you and me




5. Feels Like Yesterday


In just one night you showed me the light And made me realize how life could be In just one day you showed me the way You lifted me up and then you set me free Just yesterday, you passed my way And I know you know I'll be all right, come what may If there is no tomorrow With just one kiss, you taught me such bliss Then shoved it all deep down inside Such love and light, and feeling so right Now a heart I have to hide Just yesterday, you passed my way And I know you know We'll be all right, come what may if there is no tomorrow Oh, bring back yesterday If there is no tomorrow Oh, bring back yesterday And take away all this sorrow Yes, I just want yesterday Cause I know there's no tomorrow You know if feels like yesterday If I know there's no tomorrow
