You’d given up on your hopes, on your dreams You let them go, fell apart at the seams How do you start building fire again When your scared of the hurt, terrified of the pain So don’t be afraid of your heart that’s guiding you Don’t be afraid of your heart Don’t be afraid of your heart that’s driving you Don’t be afraid of your heart You realise that your life is on the line Friends try to help, feeling they’re being kind Where do you go for the peace that you need Where do you go to feel free. So don’t be afraid of your heart that’s guiding you Don’t be afraid of your heart Don’t be afraid of your heart that’s driving you Don’t be afraid of your heart

Finding the courage to be brave Keeping the faith can be hard so hard Love is the drug that you crave You’ve always been on your guard, your guard So don’t be afraid of your heart that’s guiding you Don’t be afraid of your heart Don’t be afraid of your heart that’s driving you Don’t be afraid of your heart I believe in you (everyday, everyday) I believe in you (in every way, every way) I believe in you (yes I do, yes I do)

Life can be lonely, cold and so empty Waiting for night time to turn in to day Then you came a knocking, I decided to answer Handsome and lovely, you swept me away I was drunk on your kisses, cos they were so sweet The only thing missing was what I believed I was so glad I found you, you were just what I needed Drunk on your kisses, sipping your love You were intoxicating (oh my), I was intoxicated (am I) Out of my power, showing a face The lesson was painful, for that I’m now grateful Life is for learning, we all make mistakes I was drunk on your kisses, cos they were so sweet The only thing missing was what I believed I was so glad I found you, you were just what I needed Drunk on your kisses, sipping your love You rescued me You rescued me You rescued me You rescued me

Honey, you don’t know what you’ve done to me Naked, here’s my soul you see Whisper, the world fades away When you whisper night changes to day Baby, love feels so good Maybe just like it oughta Honey, that’s what you are Feel me, heal me, my sticky star When you touch me, the world fades away When you touch me, night changes to day Baby, love feels so good Maybe just like it oughta You knocked me off my feet, brought me out of my retreat I’d been hiding for too long You made me smile again, I was thinking when would someone find me. Baby, love feels so good Maybe just like it oughta Harmonica solo.

Love me like the world will end today Dance with me till stars no longer shine Stay with me still the seas all run dry Cos I am yours and you are mine so divine Love me till I can’t take anymore You showed me just what my heart is for Lay with me till the flowers lose their bloom Cos I am yours and you are mine, not too soon Love me till the moon no longer wanes Bear with me through all my aches and pains Play with me till the world no longer turns Cos I am yours and I for you ever yearn

You say that the love has gone. You say you don’t wanna carry on. You say that it’s messing with your head. You say you don’t want me in your bed. Is there nothing I can do to save you from walking away? Nothing I can do to persuade you it was all a mistake? I’ll do anything to convince you that we need more time? Nothing I can do, nothing I can try? You say that it’s no surprise. You say you could see it in my eyes. You say that it’s tearing you apart. You say it’s the breaking of your heart. Is there nothing I can do to save you from walking away? Nothing I can do to persuade you it was all a mistake? I’ll do anything to convince you that we need more time? Is there nothing I can do, nothing I can try?

I’ll do most anything. But I won’t be a fool. I know you’re suffering. I’m suffering too. You say that the love has gone. You say you don’t wanna carry on. You say that it’s messing with your head. You say you don’t want me in your bed. Is there nothing I can do to save you from walking away? Nothing I can do to persuade you it was all a mistake? I’ll do anything to convince you that we need more time? Is there nothing I can do, nothing I can try? Please don’t walk away, one more hour give me one day. Cos I can’t bear to hear you say, hear you say goodbye.

How has it all come to this? All the tears I can’t keep from crying. Where did it all go so wrong? Depleted from trying.. How did it all get so bad? I remember the joy and laughter. It’s all so sad - no happy ever after. Clouds brewin’ for another storm. My heart is aching. The pain it keeps me warm. The vow is breaking. The vow is breaking.

All I can see is the dark. Inside I’m slowly drowning. I’m so afraid - nightmares seize my day. Take it one day at a time - Cos I can’t go any faster. What’s yours was mine. I miss you. Clouds brewin’ for another storm. My heart is aching. The pain it keeps me warm. The vow is breaking. The vow is breaking. I’m holding I’m holding on for dear life. I’m holding I’m holding on for dear life. I’m holding I’m holding on for dear life. I’m holding I’m holding on for dear life.

I let you go ‘cause I couldn’t love you the way I should. I watched you leave - my heart was breaking - I was filled with grief. Running and running around in my head, finding solutions in the books I read. And I’m hunted by things that I did and I said. I was the jury and I sentenced me. What’ll I do? What’ll will I say when I see you again? What’ll I do? Oh my, what will I say when I see you. I’m terrified of bumping into you at an old jazz dive. I wanna call find out how you are, then I change my mind I don’t call you at all. I’m still running and running around in my head, finding solutions in the things I’ve read. And I’m hunted by things that I did and I said. I was the jury and I should set me free.

What’ll I do? ( I thought I would die without you) What’ll I say when I see you again? What will I do? ( I thought I couldn’t live without you) What’ll I say when I see you. As the years go by, the tears they dry, I wondered why? I was holding out terrified by doubt, was I in or out? Should I stay or go, I don’t really know, someone tell me so. I was mystified was it justified I was do or die. What’ll I do? ( I thought I would die without you) What’ll I say when I see you? What’ll I do? ( I thought I could live without you) What’ll I say when I see you. What’ll I do? ( I thought I would die without you) What’ll I say when I see you? What’ll I do? ( I thought I could live without you) What’ll I say when see you -oh now.

Finding the courage to be brave. Keeping the faith can be hard. Love is the drug you crave. Love is the drug. Do you know there’s a map inside your heart with directions showing you where to start. What’s your mission will you find the gold? The clock is ticking the wind is blowing cold. Will you make it or will you give in, lacking patience you need the will to win. Go ‘head and try it what have you gotta lose. You’ll feel happy, instead it’s up to you to choose.

Oooh oh oh. Fake it, ’til you make a change, it’s gon feel weird, it’s gon feel strange. Go ‘head and try it what you gotta lose. You’ll feel happy ‘stead of feeling blue. Fake it, ’til you make a change, it’s gon feel weird, it’s gon feel strange. Go ‘head and try it what you gotta lose. You’ll feel happy, happy happy happy happy happy happy. You’ve got to want to change your life.

Fake it, ’til you make a change, it’s gon feel weird, ‘ts gon feel strange. Go ‘head and try it what you gotta lose. You’ll feel happy ‘stead of feeling blue.

Life often seem’s unfair, you wonder why you’re here the feeling is so unclear. Some say love really conquers all - will catch you when you fall - who really know’s it all.

How you doing? Notice something new? All your wishes are coming into view. You hear the clapping - the sound of the applause. You’re a hero - a champion for your cause.

Life often feels unfair, you wonder why we’re here the feeling is so unclear. Some say love really conquers all - will catch you when you fall - who really know’s it all? Fake it until you make a change.
