BARRY MANILOW


The Gonzo Hits Medley Lyrics

One voice singing in the darkness
All it takes is one voice
Singing so they hear what's on your mind
And when you look around you'll find
There's more than one voice singing in the darkness
Joining with that one voice
Each and every note another octave
Hands are joined and fears unlocked
If only one voice should start it on it's own
We need just one voice facing the unknown
And then that one voice would never be alone
It takes that one voice


I've been alive forever, and I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs
I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs



And maybe the old songs will bring back the old times
Maybe the old lines will sound new
Maybe she'll lay her head on my shoulder
Maybe old feelings will come through
Maybe we'll start to cry and wonder why we ever walked away
Maybe the old songs will bring back the old times and make her wanna stay



We're goin' hoppin' (Hop)
we're goin' hoppin' today
where things are poppin' (Pop)
the Philadelphia way
we're gonna drop in (Drop)
on all the music they play
on the Bandstand (Bandstand)
We're goin' swingin' (Swing)
we're gonna swingin' the crowd
and we'll be clingin' (Cling)
and floatin' high as a cloud
The phones are ringin' (Ring)
My mom and dad are so proud
I'm on Bandstand (Bandstand)
And I'll jump, and hey, I may even show 'em my handstand
because I'm on, because I'm on the American Bandstand
when we dance real slow I'll show all the guys in the grandstand
what a swinger I am, I am on American Bandstand


I don't want to walk without you baby

I don't want to walk without you, Baby
Walk without my arm about you, Baby

Oh, Baby, please come back or you'll break my heart for me
'Cause I don't want to walk without you
No, siree



Last night, I waved goodbye, now it seems years
I'm back in the city, where nothin' is clear
But thoughts of me, holdin' you, bringin' us near
And tell me
When will our eyes meet?
When can I touch you?
When will this strong yearnin' end?
And when will I hold you again?



Even now when I never hear your name
And the world has changed so much since you've been gone
Even now I still remember and the feeling's still the same
And this pain inside of me goes on and on, even now
Even now when I have come so far
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it's still so hard without you
Even now when I come shinin' through
I swear I think of you and God, I wish you knew
Somehow, Somehow



I saw you at the Beechwood Cafe
You looked at me and then you looked away
That was some kind
Some kind of friend you turned out to be
You said you had places that you had to be
Now who is gonna be there for me
That was some kind
Some kind of friend you turned out to be
Lady that was some kind
Some kind of friend you turned out to be
Baby that was some kind
Some kind of friend you turned out to be

(City rhythm, oo, city rhythm, oo, city rhythm, oo)

When my heart (city rhythm) is torn apart (oo)
By the love I wish I had
Well, I spend my (city rhythm) nights in the city's lights (oo)
And things don't seem so bad
Ya know the movement seems to soothe me
And the tempo takes control
And I lose my blues
When the New York City rhythm fills my soul
It's the New York City rhythm runnin' though life (city rhythm)
The poundin' beat of the city streets that keeps my dreams alive

I'm lost (I'm lost), I'm found (I'm found)
I'm up (I'm up), I'm down, (I'm down) but somehow I surviveIt's got to be the New York City rhythm in my lifeOh, it's got to be the New York City rhythm in my life, in my life

At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)The hottest spot north of Havana (here)At the Copa (CO!), CopacabanaMusic and passion were always the fashionAt the Copa....they fell in love

If I could find the words then I would write it all downIf I could only find a voice I would speakBut it's there in my eyes so can't you see me tonightCome on and look at me and read 'em and weep
It's there in my eyes and coming straight from my heartIt's running silent and angry and deepIt's there in my eyes and it's all I can sayCome on look at me and read 'em and weep
Read 'em and weep - for all the hours we'll be spending aloneRead 'em and weep - for the dreams we'll ignoreRunning silent and deepFor all those promises we promised to keep
Why don't you look at me and read 'em and weepWhy don't you look at me and read 'em

When I wanted you I needed youAnd I still can't bring myself to say I'm over youWhen I gave you time to make up your mindYou turned you back on meAnd now I turn my back on you

But somewhere down the roadOur roads are gonna cross againIt doesn't really matter whenBut somewhere down the roadI know that heart of yours will come to seeThat you belong with me

This one's for you wherever you areTo say that nothin's been the same since we've been apart Oh-uh-ohThis one's for all the love we once knewLike everything else I have, this one's for you

Doctor, my woman is comin' back home late todayCoudja maybe give me somethin' ?'cause the feeling is gone and I must get it back right awayBefore she sees thatI've been up, down, tryin' to get the feeling againAll around, tryin' to get the feeling againThe one that made me shiverMade my knees start to quiverEvery time she walked in
And I've looked high (high), low (low)Everywhere I possibly can (high)But there's no (no) tryin' to get the feelin' againIt seemed to disappear as fast as it came
I've been up, down, tryin' to get the feeling again

And I'm ready to take a chance againReady to put my love on the line with youBeen livin' with nothing for show for itYou get what you get when you go for itAnd I'm ready to take a chance again with you

Let's hang on to what we gotDon't let go girl, we got a lotGot a lot of love between usHang on, hang on, hang on
Come with meSomewhere in the night we will knowEverything lovers can knowYou're my song, music too magic to endI'll play you over and over againLovin' so warm, movin' so rightClosin' our eyes and feelin' aliveWe'll just go on burnin' brightSomewhere in the night

Baby, I love you, come, come, come into my armsLet me know the wonder of all of youBaby, I want you now, now, now, and hold on fastCould this be the magic at last?

We dreamers have our waysOf facing rainy daysAnd somehow we surviveWe keep the feelings warmProtect them from the stormUntil our time arrivesThen one day the sun appearsAnd we come shining through those lonely yearsI made it through the rainI kept my world protectedI made it throught the rainI kept my point of viewI made it through the rainAnd found myself respectedBy the others whoGot rained on tooAnd made it through

Looks like we made it
Looks like we made it

I'm singin' to the world, it's time we let the spirit come inLet it come on inI'm singin' to the world, everybody's caught in the spinLook at where we've beenWe've been runnin' around, year after yearBlinded with pride, blinded with fearBut it's daybreak, if you wanna believeIt can be daybreak, ain't no time to grieveSaid it's daybreak if you'll only believeAnd let it shine, shine, shineAll around the world (sing it to the world, sing, sing)

It's from me it's for youIt's from you, it's for meIt's a worldwide symphony
I write the songs that make the whole world singI write the songs of love and special thingsI write the songs that make the young girls cryI write the songs, I write the songs
