The Very Thought Of You lyrics - Natalie Cole

The very thought of you,
and I forget to do,
the little ordinary things
that everyone ought to do.

I'm living in a kind of daydream.
I'm happy as a king.
And foolish though it may seem
to me, that's everything.

The mere idea of you,
the longing here for you…
You'll never know how slow the moments go
‘til I'm near to you.

I see your face in every flower,
your eyes in stars above.
It's just the thought of you,
the very thought of you,
my love.

The mere idea of you,
the longing here for you…
You'll never know how slow the moments go
‘til I'm near to you

I see your face in every flower,
your eyes in stars above.
It's just the thought the of you,
the very thought of you,
my love.

Paper Moon lyrics - Natalie Cole

I never feel a thing is real
When I'm away from you
Out of your embrace
The world's a temporary parking place
Mmm... A bubble for a minute
Mmm... you smile
The bubble has a rainbow in it

Say it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Yes it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky tank parade
With out your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me, oh...

[scat]

Yes it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

[scat p.2]

Route 66 lyrics - Natalie Cole

If you, ever plan to motor West
Travel my way, take the highway that's the best
Get your kicks, on Route 66

It winds, from Chicago to L.A.
More than two-thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks, on Route 66.

Now you go through Saint Looey
And Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty
You'll see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona; don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernandino

Won't you, get hip to this timely tip
When you make, that Cal-i-fornia trip
Get your kicks, on Route 66

[solos: bass, piano]

Won't you... get hip to this timely tip
When you make, that Cal-i-fornia trip

Get your kicks, on Route, 66
Come on and get your kicks, on Route 6-6
Get your kicks, on Route 66

Mona Lisa lyrics - Natalie Cole

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa men have named you
You're so like the lady with the mystic smile
Is it only cause you're lonely they have blamed you
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your style
Do you smile to tempt a lover Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your door step
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm? Are you real Mona Lisa?
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art

[Musical Interlude]

Do you smile to tempt a lover Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your door step
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm? Are you real Mona Lisa?
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art
Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa

L-O-V-E lyrics - Natalie Cole

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can love

It's all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart but please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

Yeah L is for the way you look - you're lookin' at me
And O is for the only one I see
V is so very very extraordinary
Now E is even more than any-any-anyone that you adore can love

It's all that I'm gonna give to you
Oh love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart but please don't you break it
'Cause love was made for me and you
I'm a-tellin' you that love was made for me and you
Don't you know that love was made for me and you

This Can't Be Love lyrics - Natalie Cole

This can't be love, because I feel so well,
No sobs, no sorrows, no sighs.
This can't be love; I get no dizzy spells,
My head is not in the skies.

My heart does not stand still, just hear it beat.
This is too sweet to be love.

This can't be love, because I feel so well,
But still I love to look in your eyes.

[Instrumental interlude]

My heart does not stand still, just hear it beat.
This is too sweet to be love.

This can't be love, because I feel so well,
But still I love to look in your eyes.
Still I love to look in your eyes.

Smile lyrics - Natalie Cole

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
For you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear maybe ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile- what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worth while
If you just smile
Oh that's the time you must keep on trying

Smile what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worth while
If you just smile

Lush Life lyrics - Natalie Cole

I used to visit all the very gay places
Those come-what-may places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the Wheel of Life
To get the feel of life
From jazz and cocktails

The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
With distingué traces
That used to be there
You could see where they'd been washed away
By too many through the day
Twelve o'clock-tails

Then you came along with your siren song
To tempt me to madness
I thought for awhile that your poignant smile
Was tinged with a sadness
Of a great love for me
Ah, yes, I was wrong
Again, I was wrong

Life is lonely, again
And only last year everything seemed so sure
Now life is awful, again
A troughful of hearts could only be a bore

A week in Paris
Will ease the bite of it
All I care is
To smile, in spite of it

I'll forget you, I will
While yet you are still
Burning inside my brain

Romance is mush
Stifling those who strive
I'll live a lush life
In some small dive...

And there I'll be
While I rot with the rest
Of those whose lives are lonely too...

That Sunday That Summer lyrics - Natalie Cole

(If I had to choose just one day)
If I had to choose just one day to last my whole life through
It would surely be that Sunday; the day that I met you
Newborn whippoorwills were calling from the hills
Summer was a coming in but fast
Lots of daffodils were showing off their skills
Nodding all together, I can almost hear them whisper
Go on kiss him; go on and kiss him
If I had to choose one moment to live within my heart
It would be that tender moment recalling how we started
Darling it would be when you smiled at me
That way, that Sunday, that Summer

[Musical Interlude]

Go on kiss him; go on and kiss him
And if I had to choose just one moment
To live within my heart it would surely be that moment
Recalling how we started
Darling it would be when you smiled at me
That way, that Sunday, that summer
(If I had to choose just one day)

Orange Colored Sky lyrics - Natalie Cole

I was walking along
Mindin' my business
When out of the orange colored sky

Flash

Bam

Ali-ca-zam

Wonderful you came by

I was hummin' a tune
Drinkin' in sunshine
When out of that orange colored view

Wham

Bam

Ali-ca-zam

I gotta look at you
One look and I yelled "timber"
Watch out for flying glass

'Cause the ceiling fell in
And the bottom fell out
I went into a spin
And I started to shout,
"I've been hit, this is it, this is it."

I was walking along
Mindin' my business
When love came and hit me in the eye

Flash

Bam

Ali-ca-zam
Out of the orange colored sky

Well, one look and I yelled "timber"
Watch out for flying glass

'Cause the ceiling fell in
And the bottom fell out
I went into a spin
And I started to shout,
"I've been hit, this is it, this is it."

I was walkin' along
Mindin' my business
When love came and hit me in the eye

Flash

Bam

Ali-ca-zam
Out of that orange colored purple striped pretty green polka-dot sky

Flash

Bam

Ali-ca-zam
And goodbye

A Medley: For Sentimental Reasons / Tenderly / Autumn Leaves lyrics - Natalie Cole

[For Sentimental Reasons]

I love you, for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I'll give my heart

I love you, and you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And say we'll never part

I think of you every morning
Dream of you every night
Darling I'm never lonely
Whenever you're in sight

I love you, for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart...

[Tenderly]

The evening breeze, caressed the trees
Tenderly
The trembling trees, embraced the breeze
Tenderly

Then you and I
Came wandering by
And lost in the sight, were we

The shore was kissed, by sea and mist
Tenderly
I can't forget, how two hearts met
Breathlessly

Your arms open wide, and close me inside
You took my lips, you took my love
So tenderly

Your arms open wide, and close me inside
You took my lips, you took my love
So tenderly

[Autumn Leaves]

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear Old Winter's song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Mais la vie spare ceux qui saiment
Tout doucement sans faire de bruit
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall...

Straighten Up And Fly Right lyrics - Natalie Cole

A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air
Monkey thought that everything was on the square
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off his back
But the monkey grabbed his neck and said "Now listen, jack"

"Straighten up and fly right
"Straighten up and stay right
"Straighten up and fly right
"Cool down papa, don't you blow your top
"Ain't no use in divin'
"What's the use of jivin'
"Straighten up and fly right
"Cool down papa, don't you blow your top."

The buzzard told the monkey "You are chokin' me
"Release your hold, and I will set you free"
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye
And said "Your story's so touching but it sounds like a lie"

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down papa don't you blow your top

[Interlude]

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down papa don't you blow your top

Ain't no use in divin'
What's the use of jivin'
You better, straighten up and fly right
Cool down papa don't you blow your top

Fly right

Avalon lyrics - Natalie Cole

I found my love at Avalon
Beside the bay
I left my love at Avalon
And sailed away
I dream of him at Avalon
From dusk until dawn
And so I think I'll travel on
To Av-va-lon

Yes I found my love at Avalon
Beside the bay
I left my love at Avalon
And sailed away
Oh I, dream of him at Avalon
From dusk until dawn
And so I think I'll travel on
To Av...va-lon...

Don't Get Around Much Anymore lyrics - Natalie Cole

Missed the Saturday dance
Heard they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore
Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't get around much anymore
Darling, I guess my mind's more at ease
But nevertheless, why stir up memories
Been invited on dates
Might have gone but what for
Awfully different without you
Don't get around much anymore

Too Young lyrics - Natalie Cole

They tried to tell us we're too young
Too young to really be in love
They say that loves a word
A word we've only heard
But can't begin to know
The meaning of

And yet we're not too young to know
This love will last though years may go
And then some day they may recall
We were not too young at all

And yet we're not too young to know
That this love will last though years may go
And then some day they may recall
We were not too young at all

Nature Boy lyrics - Natalie Cole

There was a boy...
A very strange enchanted boy

They say he wondered very far, very far
Over land and sea

A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he

And then one day
One magic day, passed my way

And as we spoke of many things,
Fools and kings,
This he said to me

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
is just to love and be loved in return"

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
is just to love and be loved in return"

Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup lyrics - Natalie Cole

Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
Je ne sais pas what to do
You know you've completely
Stolen my heart

Morning, noon and nighttime too
Toujours wondering what to do
That's the way I felt
Right from the start

Ah, cheri
My love for you is très, très fort
Wish my French were good enough
I'd tell you so much more

But I hope that you compris
All the little things you mean to me
Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
I love you, yes I do

Wish my French were good enough
I'd tell you so much more
But I hope that you compris
All the things you mean to me
Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
I love you, yes I do

I love you, yes I do

Almost Like Being In Love lyrics - Natalie Cole

What a day this has been
What a rare mood I'm in
Why it's almost like being in love
There's a smile on my face
For the whole human race
Why it's almost like being in love
there's a music of life; seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing for me
And from the way that I feel
When that bell starts to peel
I would swear I was falling, swear I was falling

- It's almost like being in love

[Instrumental]

The music of life seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing just for me
And from the way that I feel
When that bell starts to peel
I would swear i was falling, swear I was falling
- It's almost like being in love

Thou Swell lyrics - Natalie Cole

Thou swell, thou witty, thou sweet, thou grand
Wouldst kiss me pretty? Wouldst hold my hand?
Both thine eyes are cute too, what they do to me
Hear me holler, I choose a sweet lollapaloosa in thee

I'd feel so rich in a hut for two
Two rooms and kitchen I'm sure would do
Give me just a plot of, not a lot of land
And thou swell, thou witty, thou grand

Non Dimenticar lyrics - Natalie Cole

Non Dimenticar,
Means don't forget your
my darling
don't forget to be
all you mean to me

Non Dimenticar,
My love is like a star
my darling
Shining bright and clean
just because you're here
please do not forget

That our lips have meant
and I've held you tightly

Was it dreams or though
my heart felt is ...
or just a night here

Non Dimenticar,
although you travel far
my darling
it's my heart you owe
so I'll wait alone
Non Dimenticar...

Our Love Is Here To Stay lyrics - Natalie Cole

It's very clear
Our love is here to stay
Not for a year
But ever and a day

The radio, and the telephone
And the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies
And in time may go...

But, oh, my dear
Our love is here to stay
Together we're
Going a long, long way

In time the Rockies may tumble
Gibraltar may crumble
They're only made of clay
But, our love is here
To stay

In time the Rockies may tumble
Gibraltar may crumble
They're only made of clay
But, our love is here
Our love is here
Our love is here to stay

Unforgettable lyrics - Natalie Cole

Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable, though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more
Unforgettable in every way
And forevermore (and forevermore)
That's how you'll stay (that's how you'll stay)
That's why darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

[Musical interlude]

No, never before has someone been more
Ooh unforgettable (unforgettable)
In every way (in every way)
And forevermore (and forevermore)
That's how you'll stay (that's how you'll stay)
That's why darling it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too.

"Good To Be Back" (1989)

Safe lyric - Natalie Cole

She broke your heart
You fell apart
Boy, you didn't know what hit ya
You never thought that you'd get caught
Doing it again
Now, did ya?
So hard to get so cool and yet
You're lovin' it and you know it
Cause when we meet
We feel the heat
Trying so hard not to show it
In the arms of romance
You say you'll never go back, no way

Just when you thought it was safe
That you could never fall in love again
Just when you thought it was safe
Look what I got'cha thinkin' of again

It took a while to make you smile
Boy, you didn't know what hit ya
Hard as you try, you can't deny
That you're ready now
Would I kid ya?
So take the reins and break the chains
No, you can't hold back forever
You're in control, you're on a roll
And the timing won't get no better
In the arms of romance
You say you'll never go back, no way

Just when you thought it was safe
That you could never fall in love again
Just when you thought it was safe
Look what I got'cha thinkin' of again

It's not a crime to change your mind
People do
It's not so bad, it's easy to
You never know when love will show you the way
You don't belong to yesterday

Just when (oh boy) you thought it was safe
You didn't know what hit ya
Now, did ya?
Ha, ha, ha, yeah, yeah, oh baby
I got'cha thinkin'
Now didn't I, now didn't I
Now didn't I, boy?

Trying hard to be cool
But my love's getting through
You're in trouble
I bet'cha my love is surely gonna get'cha, baby

Just when you thought it was safe
You've been runnin' and hidin'
Slippin' and a-slidin' no more

Just when you thought it was safe
It's not safe
That you could never fall in love again

Just when you thought it was safe
You're in love
Look what I got'cha thinkin' of again

I got'cha thinkin' now, didn't I?
Now I got'cha wonderin', now don't I?
Oh, I got'cha thinkin'
I got'cha thinkin'
My love is gonna get'cha
Looks like my love is getting through

As A Matter Of Fact lyrics - Natalie Cole

Blow daddy, oh, yeah

Here we are, standing at the hard line
We made it last this long
The two of us, together since the first time
And I believe our love is still strong

Seems love has a funny way
Well, it can come or go or it can choose to stay
But love says what it has to say

Matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter of fact)
I love you
(Oh, as a matter of fact)
And I love that you love me back
As a matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter, a matter)

Some said we wouldn't make it this far
But they don't talk no more
(No more)
The love we share is precious as a big star
And what we have's what others hope for

Seems love has a funny way
Well, it can come or go or it can choose to stay
But love says what it has to say

Matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter of fact)
I need you
(Oh, as a matter of fact)
And I'm glad that you need me back
As a matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter, a matter)

Mm, matter of fact, yeah
(Ooh as a matter of fact)
I want you
(Yeah, as a matter of fact)

And I can't tell you more than that
As a matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter, matter)
Aw, blow, daddy

Yeah, yeah, yeah, seems love has a funny way
Well, it can come and go or it can choose to stay
But love says what it has to say

Matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter of fact)
I love you
(Oh, as a matter of fact)

Yeah, and I love that you love me back
As a matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter of fact)
Ooh, ooh, baby

Matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter of fact)
I need you
(Yeah, as a matter of fact)
And I'm glad that you need me right back
As a matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter, a matter)

Ooh baby
(Ooh, as a matter of fact)
Loving you baby
(Oh, as a matter of fact)
And I love that you love me back
As a matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter, matter)

Matter of fact
(Ooh, as a matter of fact)
Ooh, matter of fact
(Yeah, as a matter of fact)

Rest Of The Night lyrics - Natalie Cole

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Oh, yeah
Baby, what's your hurry
Where are you going so fast
You can keep your motor runnin'
But don't run out of gas
Getting there is half the fun
Cause you've got the rest of the night to hold me
And the best of my love's yet to come (yet to come)
For the rest of my life I'm gonna love you
So take a little longer, my love can only get stronger
(Stronger, stronger)
If we're gonna climb a mountain
We gotta take our sweet time
When you're traveling down love's highway
Don't you know speeding is a crime
Listen, getting there is half the fun
Cause you've got the rest of the night to hold me
And the best of my love's yet to come (yet to come)
For the rest of my life I'm gonna love you
So take a little longer
My love can only get stronger (stronger, stronger)
Oh, my Baby, we gotta slow down (ooh)
Take your time, ease your mind (oh, Baby, mmm)
Stronger, rest of my life, I'm gonna love you
So just take a little longer, and our love is gonna get stronger
(Cause you've got the rest of the night) oh---, yeah
(And the best of my love) yet to come (yet to come)
Oh, baby, for (rest of my life) I'm gonna love you
I want you to take your time
Love me baby, love me baby, love me, love me (rest of my life)
Slow down baby, I ain't going no where (best of my love)
So why don't we just take our sweet time (rest of my life)
Don't rush me, you're gonna crush me, let the feeling come
Oh, remember that song about a slow hand (rest of the night)
Now she had the right idea (oh--)
So, Baby, what's the hurry, (best of my love)
we've got forever
If we don't use it up too fast (oh, ah--)
Take it slow, calm down, smell the roses
We'll get there, don't you worry
(Rest of the night, to hold me) (best of my love, yet to come...)

Miss You Like Crazy lyrics - Natalie Cole

Even though it's been so long
My love for you keeps going strong
I remember the things that we used to do
A kiss in the rain till the sun shine through
I tried to deny it but I'm still in love with you

I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
Ever since you went away, every hour of every day
I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
No matter what I say or do
There's just no getting over you

I can see the love shining in your eyes
And it comes as such a sweet surprise
If seeing's believing it's worth the wait
So hold me and tell me it's not too late
We're so good together, we're starting forever now

And I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
Ever since you went away, every hour of every day
I miss you like crazy, I miss you baby
A love like ours will never end
Just touch me and we're there again

Just one night
And we'll have that magic feeling like we used to do
Hold on tight
And whatever comes our way we're gonna make it through

If seeing's believing it's worth the wait
So hold me and tell me it's not too late
We're so good together, we're starting forever now

And I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
No matter what I say or do
There's just no getting over you
And I miss you, baby, I miss you, baby
All the tender love you gave me
When a feeling gets this strong
You know the real thing come along

And I miss you
I miss you like crazy baby
Only your sweet love can save me
I miss you like crazy
A love like ours will never end
Just touch me and we're there again
Miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy

Good To Be Back lyrics - Natalie Cole

Let me look at you, just look at you
You're a sight for sore eyes, yes you are
If you knew how many nights, I spent holding you so tight
Then I'd wake up and we're still apart

Now you're really near and I'm really here
And I can wrap my arms around you, yes I can
This is just like I remember, no I think it's even better
Maybe even more than I can stand

Baby it's good to be back, so good to be back
Baby it's good to be back in your arms again
Baby it's good to be back, so good to be back
Honey it's good to be back with you, oh yeah

Well it's not the first time, we've been apart
But as far as I'm concerned it's the last
I don't care what we have to do to stay together from now on
But those days away from you are past

'Cause when I go through the day and I haven't seen your face
Seems like nothing that I do feels right
You're the one I wanna see when I wake up every day
You're the one I wanna kiss goodnight

Baby it's good to be back, so good to be back
Baby it's good to be back in your arms again
Baby it's good to be back, so good to be back
Honey it's good to be back with you

So good, so good, so good
So good, so good with you, baby
So good with you

Why don't you start me up with just one kiss
That's just one of the things I've missed
You better kiss me once again till it finally settles in
Well I think I could get used to this

Baby it's good to be back, so good to be back
Baby it's good to be back in your arms again
Baby it's good to be back, so good to be back
Honey it's good to be back with you

Baby it's good to be back, feels mighty good to be back
Baby it's good to be back with you
Baby it's good to be back, so good to be back
Honey it's good to be back with you

And it's so good to be back, oh yeah good to be back
Baby, its good to be back in you're arms again
And it's so good to be back, so good to be back
Honey it's good to be back with you

Gonna Make You Mine lyrics - Natalie Cole

Since the time we met never shall forget
The magic feeling when I look in your eyes
Every now and then I see you again
But the words never come out right

I've always been painfully shy
I hide what I feel inside

Tonight I
(Never let you get away)
Open my heart
(Invite you in to stay)
I need you
(More than words can say)
And I hope you feel the same

Gonna make you mine, I'll make you mine
You've captured my heart
And I won't take no for an answer
Gonna make you mine, I'll make you mine
Hope that there's a chance, baby
That we can get together

'Cause I
(Gonna make you mine)
Gonna make you see
(Gonna make you mine)
You were meant for me
(Gonna make you mine)
I wanna love you endlessly

Many times before I would just ignore
Love when it came around and knocked on my door
Keeping to myself, trusting no one else
I've put my heart out of reach on a shelf
With you I can't pass up this chance
For a once in a lifetime romance

'Cause after all
(Someone said it very plain)
When it comes to love
(No pain, no gain)
I think I'll
(Take a chance on you)
And you know I play to win

I'm gonna make you mine, I'll make you mine
You've captured my heart
And I won't take no for an answer
Gonna make you mine, I'll make you mine
Hope that there's a chance, honey
That we can get together

'Cause I
(Gonna make you mine)
Gonna make you see
(Gonna make you mine)
You were meant for me
(Gonna make you mine)
I wanna love you endlessly, yeah

Oh, I'm looking for one lifetime romance
(Someone said it very plain)
I'll think I'll
(No pain, no gain)
Take a chance on you
(Take a chance on you)
Ooh, 'cause you know I play to win, baby

(Gonna make you mine)
I'll make you mine
You've captured my heart
And I won't take no for an answer

(Gonna make you mine)
I'm gonna make you mine
I believe there's a chance that
We can get together

'Cause I
(Gonna make you mine)
Gonna make you see
(Gonna make you mine)
You were meant for me
(Gonna make you mine)
I gonna love you endlessly

(Gonna make you mine, I'll make you mine)
I'm gonna make you mine
And I won't take no for answer
(Gonna make you mine, I'll make you mine)
Oh, you've captured my heart
I know that we can get together, together, together
(Gonna make you mine, I'll make you mine)
I'm gonna make you and I'm gonna love you
And I won't take no for answer

Starting Over Again lyrics - Natalie Cole

And when I hold you in my arms, I promise you
You're gonna feel a love that's beautiful and new
This time, I'll love you even better
Than I ever did before
And you'll be in my heart forever more

We were just too young to know
We fell in love and let it go
So easy to say the words goodbye
So hard to let the feelings die
I know how much I need you now
The time is turning back somehow
As soon as our heart and souls unite
I know for sure we'll get the feeling right

And now we're starting over again
It's not the easiest thing to do
I'm feeling inside again
'Cause every time I look at you
I know we're starting over again
This time we'll love all the pain away
Welcome home, my lover and friend
We are starting over, over again

If we never lived alone
Then we might have never known
All the time we spent apart
All we did was break each other's heart

And when I hold you in my arms, I promise you
You're gonna feel a love that's beautiful and new
This time, I'll love you even better
Than I ever did before
And you'll be in my heart forever more

And now we're starting over again
It's not the easiest thing to do
I'm feeling inside again
'Cause every time I look at you
I know we're starting over again
This time we'll love all the pain away
Welcome home, my lover and friend
We are starting over, over again

This time we'll chase all the rain away
Welcome home, my lover and friend
We are starting over, over again
We are starting over, over again

Don't Mention My Heartache lyrics - Natalie Cole

Hoo, hoo, mm
Don't mention my heartache
I just hide it away
Don't want to remember what brings me pain
Who does it hurt if I'm masquerading
When anybody asks me you know I'll say, yeah
That I love him, he loves me
We're so good together
I'll pretend he's home again
Though he's gone forever
Don't mention my heartache
'Cause I don't want nobody to know, no, no, no
Just keep it a secret that he let me go
'Cause I don't want nobody to know
That I go through the motions (motions)
Put a smile on my face, yes, I do
I heard that the weather is changing today, yeah, yeah
And I don't talk about my business to noone
If anybody asks me you know what I'll say, yeah
That I love him; he loves me, we're so good together
I'll pretend he's home again, though he's gone forever
Don't mention my heartache
'Cause I don't want nobody to know, oh, no
Just keep it a secret that he let me go
'Cause I don't want nobody to know--
Oh, oh, oh, oh, hoo--
That the heartache that I'm feeling makes me lonely, oh---
Don't mention my heartache
'Cause I don't want nobody to know, no, no
Just keep it a secret that he let me go
And I don't want nobody to know, nobody
(Can't talk about it)
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
(Don't want to think about it)
And I don't want nobody, I got a heartache
I don't want nobody, I don't want nobody, I got a heartache
(Don't mention my heartache)
I got a heartache, he let me go
It's a sweet face, yes, it is
Don't want nobody, can't stand nobody
(Don't mention my heartache)
And I got to keep it a secret
(I'm minding my business)
'Cause my man, 'cause my man
Ain't my man no more
Keeping it a secret (don't mention my heartache)
Keeping it a secret, oh, all to myself, he let me go...

Someone's Rockin' My Dreamboat lyrics - Natalie Cole

Someone's rockin' my dreamboat
Someone's invading my dream
We were sailing along all peaceful and calm
Then suddenly, something went wrong

Someone's rockin' my dreamboat
Disturbing a beautiful dream
It's a mystery to me, this mutiny at sea
Tell me, who can it be?

A friendly breeze gave us a start
To a paradise of our own
All at once a storm blew us apart
And left me drifting all alone

Someone's rockin' my dreamboat
I'm a captain without a crew
But with love as my guide, I'll follow the tide
I'll keep sailing 'til I find you
Yes, I'll keep sailing 'til I find you

Sailing
(Someone's rockin', someone's rockin')
Gonna keep sailing
(Someone's rockin', someone's rockin')

Someone's rockin' my dreamboat
(Someone's rockin' my dreamboat)
Disturbing my dream
(Someone's rockin' my dreamboat)
Tell me, tell me, who can it be?
Tryin' to understand this mutiny at sea

Yeah, someone is rockin', rockin'
(Someone's rockin', someone's rockin')
Simply, rockin', rockin' my dreamboat
(Someone's rockin', someone's rockin')

Well, I keep on sailing
(Someone's rockin', someone's rockin')
Gonna keep on wailing
(Someone's rockin', someone's rockin')
'Cause someone's is rockin' my dreamboat
(Someone's rockin' my dreamboat)

[?]
(Someone's rockin' my dreamboat)
Get out, get out, get out, get out, get out of my dreamboat
(Someone's rockin', someone's rockin')
Get out of my dreamboat
(Someone's rockin', someone's rockin')

Someone's rockin' my dreamboat
Someone's rockin' my dreamboat
Someone's rockin', someone' rockin'
Someone's rockin', someone's rockin'

Out of my dream, get out of my dream
(Someone's rockin' my dreamboat)
Get out of my, out of my, out of my, no, no

"Everlasting" (1987)

Everlasting lyrics - Natalie Cole

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Woah, ho ho

Everlasting, what a feeling
Just to know the love we've got is
Everlasting and never ending
Is all I need to keep on givin'

I was just an average girl
Playing the field, hoping
For someone to come into my world
Someone not afraid to look into my eyes

And make a connection
Then you walked in my direction
And from the moment that we touched
I knew what we found was

Everlasting, what a feeling
Just to know the love we've got is
Everlasting and never ending
Is all I need to keep on givin'

Walking down a one way street
I had to be careful
'Cause it seemed that every guy that I'd meet
Was looking just to have another one night stand

But through your devotion
I surrendered my emotion
I'm giving you the best of me
'Cause I'm sure that we'll be

Everlasting, what a feeling
Just to know the love we've got is
Everlasting and never ending
Is all I need to keep on givin'

Everlasting love, oh yeah
It's gonna be, it's gonna be a
Everlasting love, uh, ha

Even though the cold wind's blowin'
Nothing keeps our love from growin'
Through the fire we will survive together
Until the end of time

Everlasting, what a feeling
Just to know the love we've got is
Everlasting and never ending
Is all I need to keep on givin'

Everlasting, what a feeling
Our love's gonna grow
Even through the fire, baby
Everlasting and never ending

Even though the cold wind's blowin'
Nothing keeps our love from growing
Through the fire we will survive together
Until the end of time

Everlasting, what a feeling
It's gonna be, it's gonna be a
Everlasting and never ending
Until the end of time
And even through the fire, baby

Everlasting, what a feeling
Just to know that the love we've got is
Everlasting and never ending
What a feeling

Everlasting love, woah
Everlasting love, woah
Everlasting love, woah
Everlasting love, woah

Jump Start lyrics - Natalie Cole

Alright Paul, oh, oh, oh
Uh, oh, uh, oh, oh, oh
Hey, hey, ooh, yeah

Feels like my battery's in need of a jump
Our love is running down, done fell into a slump
Give me a spark to get the fire burning

We can't neglect what we cherish the most
So drop your foolish pride 'cause I need you more and more

The Urge To Merge lyrics - Natalie Cole

Though I think I really know you
And you think you know me
And we're as close at two people
Could ever hope to be
Still I can't escape the feeling
That no matter what I do
I'll never understand what it feels like to be you
I get the urge to know you better
To make our spirits one
I want to see us be together
As close as we can come
I get the urge to merge
I get the urge to merge with you
I get the urge to merge
I get the urge to merge with you
Have you ever wanted something
You just had to possess
And it turned into obsession
And wouldn't let you rest
There are times I can't help wishing
I could melt right into you
Hear every word you're thinking
Feel everything you do
I feel trapped inside my body
And there's nothing I can do
Want to leap across the wall
That's keeping me from you
To break what can't be broken
To say what can't be spoken
If only for a moment
To touch your soul
I get the urge to know you better

Split Decision lyrics - Natalie Cole

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Oh, yeah
Doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Mm, hmm

Who's gonna take the blame tomorrow
If we break up tonight?
If we break up
Who's gonna stop this stupid war?

That nobody's gonna win
The jury's still out on us
Split decision, split in two
By the things that came between us

So, unimportant now
All of those fights
Why do we always hurt the ones
We care the most about?

The jury's still out on us
Split decision, split in two
By the things that happened
And the dreams that came apart

Do you still want me in your life
I need to know so tell me?
Can we still make it in this life
Or is it too late for us?

How long is time about to wait?
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Hoo

Who's gonna say they're sorry first
And put this hurt away?
The jury's still out on us
Split decision, split in

It's not so easy putting back the pieces
Of a broken heart
Getting back where we started
Oh, no, oh, no

It's not so easy picking up the pieces
Of a broken heart
And get it back
(Get it back)

Get it back where we started
(Where we started)
Oh, oh, oh, no but if we hold on
We
(But if we hold on, we can try to make it)

Can try to make it and get it back
(Maybe mend this heart)
Where we started
(Get it back where we started)

Oh, oh, oh it's not so easy
(It's not so easy)
Picking up the iddy bitty pieces
(Picking up the pieces)
(Of a broken heart)

Get it back
(Get it back where we started)
Get it back where we started
But if we hold on
(If we hold on)

We're gonna make it
(We can try to make it)
(Maybe mend this heart)
Get it back where we started

When I Fall In Love lyrics - Natalie Cole

(originally by Doris Day)

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun
When I give my heart it will be completely (Completely)
Or I'll never give my heart (Give my heart)

And the moment
I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love (When I fall in love) with you

Oh, this love feels so right.

(When... I give my heart)
When I give my heart, it will be completely
(Completely)
Or I'll never (never, never) give my heart
(Never give my heart)
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love
(When I fall in love)
Is when I fall in love with you
Ohhhh
I love you

Pink Cadillac lyrics - Natalie Cole

(originally by Bruce Springsteen)

You may think I'm fooling
For the foolish things I do
You may wonder how come I love you
When you get on my nerves like you do

Well baby, you know you bug me
There ain't no secret about that
Well, come on over here and hug me
And, baby, I'll spill the facts

Well, honey it ain't your money
'Cause I got plenty of that

I love you for your pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back, oozing down the street
Waving to the girls, peeling out of sight
Spending all my money on a Saturday night
Honey, I just wonder what you do
There in the back of your pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac

Well, now way back in the Bible
Temptations always come along
There's always somebody tempting you
Somebody into doing something they know is wrong

Well, they tempt you, man, with silver
And they tempt you, sir, with gold
And they tempt you with the pleasures
That flesh does surely hold

They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
Man, I ain't going for that

I know it was her pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back, oozing down the street
Waving to the girls, peeling out of sight
Spending all my money on a Saturday night
Honey, I just wonder what you're doing
In the back of your pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac

Now, now, now, some folks say it's too big
And uses too much gas
Some folks say that it's too old
And that it just goes too fast

Ho, but love is bigger than a Honda (Honda)
And it's bigger than a Subaru (that, too)
Hey man there's only one thing
And one car that will do

Anyway we don't have to drive it
Honey, we can park it out in back
And have a party in your pink Cadillac

Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back, oozing down the street
Waving to the girls, peeling out of sight
Spending all my money on a Saturday night
Honey, I just wonder what you do there
In the back of your pink Cadillac
You know the one I mean, Le Car

I Live For Your Love lyrics - Natalie Cole

Stand up, stand on your own
That's what they tell me
You can make it alone

Where does it say I have to move
Far away from you
To prove I'm strong
Oh when, all it really proves
Is I'm lonely without you
And loneliness has to be wrong

I live for your love
Every minute
I live for your love
want you in it
I live for your love
I admit it
I live for your love

I wake up, with noone to kiss
Sometimes I wonder (wonder, wonder)
If I just exists

I know there are people I can see
Places I can be
And friends who call

Oh but, what good does it do
There's no subsitute for you
I want you, or nothing at all

I live for your love
Every minute
I live for your love
want you in it
I live for your love
I admit it

I live for your love and your kisses
You know how I miss it
Your sweet tender touch
I need you soo much that I just can't go on anymore
What I wouldn't give for
Cause darling

I live for your love
My baby, baby yeah
I live for your love, oooohhh

In My Reality lyrics - Natalie Cole

Ya yeh ya, hey-ey ya
Oh, woh, woh, woh, woh
Ah, ah, ah, ahh

Say goodbye to all of your friends
And the people we knew
It's better that it comes from you
Tell them what you want
'Cuz I tried so hard to make you happy

No big star dreams, no things that seem
To make up your life
So, I'm going back to New York City
Where people live

In my reality, all of my life
Yours was no good for me
Need to feel the beat of the street
In my life in my reality

Back to my life
Yours was no good for me
3000 miles away
And every day's a new day

All those dreams that pulled us apart
And the things that you want
They'll never be enough for you
So, I'll say goodbye
And I'm going back to New York City
Where people live

In my reality back to my life
Yours was no good for me
Need to feel the beat of the street
In my life

Back to my old address
Nobody to impress
3000 miles away
And every day's a new day ya

I guess, my love was not enough for you
So, I'll say goodbye baby
And I'm going back to New York City
There people live

In my reality, all of my life
Yours was no good for me
I need to feel the heat of the street
In my life

Goodbye to Hollywood
Didn't do me any good
3000 miles away
Where everyday is a brand new day, ay, yah, yah, yah

So, go on and say goodbye to all your friends
And the people we new
It's better that it comes from you
And you can tell them what you want

'Cuz I tried so hard to make you happy baby
But I gotta go back to my reality
Back to my life that's where I need to be
I need to feel the heat of the streets, ya, ah

In my life, in my life, in my life
I need to be feeling alright yeah, ya
3000 miles away
Its' okay 'cuz everyday is a brand new day ya

So say, ya, ya, ya
Say goodbye to all your friends
And the people that you used to know
'Cuz I've gotta go

And you can tell them what you want baby
'Cuz I tried so very, very hard
To make you oh, so happy but baby, baby
I'll pack my bags, I gotta go

What I Must Do lyrics - Natalie Cole

What I must do to hold you in my hands
Is give you all I have and be right here with you

Something happened on the way
Something I don't want to lose
Stared my heart right in the face
Telling me the truth, telling me it to you

What I must do to hold you in my hands
Is be right here with you
I know that I need to give you all I am
And this time we make it stand, stand right here with you

Of all the things I wanted most
Here you are, the one I need
Now for all the times, I did not know
So let my love go free, now I speak

What I must do to hold you in my hands
Is be right here with you
I know that I, I need to give you all I am
And this time make it stand, stand right here with you

You are the sun, you are the rain
You are the one I'd love again
And I won't ever stop this chance to be with you
No, I won't ever stop, I know what I must do
There's one thing I must do

What I must do to hold you in my hands
Is give you all I am and be right here with you
I know that I, I need to, I need to give this all I can
And this time make it stand, stand right here with you

I'm gonna do that
I know what I must do
I know what I must do
You are the sun, you are the rain
You are the one, I must do

'Cause you are my life, you are my love
I know what I must do
And this I must do for you, I must do that
Said, I'ma gonna do that, baby
I'm gonna stand right here with you

"Dangerous" (1985)

Dangerous lyrics - Natalie Cole

Da, da, da, da, da, da, dangerous
Da, da, da, danger, dangerous

All my friends say he's much too hot
Don't get involved, it's emotional shock
But ooh, he charges my electricity
When he puts his finger on me

I said a oh, oh, oh, you know I want you and I
And I, and I need you pretty baby
I'm in the fire, there's just no turning back
Though I know, know, know

You're dangerous
So hot and heavy, I know that I just can't resist
Ooh, dangerous
I feel my heart beat, I feel it beating faster

Ooh, ooh, too dangerous
The way you kiss me, I know I never felt like this
Oh, you're dangerous
Wild, even stranger, need a little danger

You make your move and I'm begging please
Then you're pushing me away, you know you're such a tease
One look can drive me right out of my mind
And get my heart pumping double time

And then I hear myself say you better be strong
Stay away, he's gonna do wrong
You better run girl while you've got the chance
'Cause you know, know, know

He's dangerous
So hot and heavy, I know that I just can't resist
Ooh, dangerous
I feel my heart beat, I feel it beating faster

Ooh, ooh too dangerous
The way you kiss me, I never, ever felt like this
Oh, you're dangerous
Wild, even stranger, need a little of your love
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh, oh, oh, oh

I'm in too deep and when you're close to me
I get so weak
Our bodies touch and then our hearts collide
I feel inside, emotional love exploding

Oh, dangerous
So hot and heavy I know that I just can't resist this
Ooh, dangerous
I feel my heart beat, beating a little bit faster

Ooh, ooh too dangerous
The way you kiss me, I never, ever felt like this
Oh, you're dangerous
Wild, even stranger, need a little danger

Billy The Kid Next Door lyrics - Natalie Cole

I was dressed to kill, I was ready
Oh, girl, I was stepping out, yeah
I was on my way to meet my steady
When this fine young thing turned me right around
At first I was frightened
Because he took me, he took me by surprise, whoo
But my heart knew that it was a hold-up
I could see the love light shining in his eyes

Right then I was held up
Girl, I was held up
I was held up by Billy the Kid next door
Yes, I was held up
My heart was held up
I was held up by Billy the Kid next door

The way he stole my affection
Oh, girl, you know that it ought to be a crime
Mm-hmm, and the way that he changed my direction
I had no projection
And I swear to you that I ain't lyin'
Oh-hoo, love was right here among me
I never knew that heaven could be so close
I was on my way to meet my steady
When right next door is what I needed most

Oh, I was held up
Right then I was held up
Oh, I was held up by Billy the Kid next door
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I was held up
Ooh, I was held up
My heart was held up by Billy the Kid next door

[Guitar Solo]

Ooh, Billy...

At first I was frightened
Because he took me, he took me surprise
But my heart knew that it was a hold-up, yeah
I saw the love light shining in his eyes

Right then, right then I was held up
My heart was held up
But you know I was held up
By Billy the Kid next door

Ooh-ooh-ooh, I was held up
Yes, I was held up
Ay-I was held up by Billy the Kid next door

He drew his pistol on me
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
Ow, he had a love gun
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
I was held up by Billy the Kid next door

And I know he's wanted
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
Oh, the boy is wanted
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
Oh, he's wanted, Billy the Kid next door

On the go
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
The go for Billy
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
'Cause he's wanted, Billy the Kid next door

I said he's wanted
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
That boy is wanted
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
Ooh, he's wanted, Billy the Kid next door

Oh, oh, oh, Billy
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
Oh, Billy

Oh whoa, Billy, Billy the Kid next door

Whoa-oh-oh-oh, Billy
Ho-whoa-whoa, Billy
Hey, Billy, Billy the Kid next door

That boy is wanted
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
I know he's wanted
(Bang, bang, shoot 'em up)
'Cause he's wanted, Billy the Kid next door

Secrets lyrics - Natalie Cole

You've got changing faces
That never leave a clue
To those hiding faces
Locked inside of you
We made love so cool
You go running off in the night
To keep things undercover
But I saw her in the light
And I discovered your secrets

[Chorus]
Secrets in your heart
You'll hear a knock-knock at your door
Secrets in your heart
(Secrets in the dark)
We'll come a-creepin'
Secrets

There is no escape
Don't you know she'll come back to haunt you
And she will seal your fate
As my memory will taunt you
Your mysterious exhibitions
I couldn't figure out before
Until I felt her kiss upon you
She was the key that unlocked the door
Into the world of your secrets

[Repeat Chorus]

Secrets in your heart
She'll come a-knock-knocking for more
Secrets
Secrets in the dark, ooh-ooh-ooh
(Voices in the dark call out your secrets)

I wouldn't find out your secrets

Secrets in your heart
You'll hear a knock-knock at your door
Skeletons that you hide inside
Will come a-creepin'
Secrets in your heart

[Repeat Chorus with Ad-Libs and Fade]

Nobody's Soldier lyrics - Natalie

Ooh... I walked away from you once before
I still see you standing at the door
Trying to find the strength to say goodbye to you
Maybe we were wrong; gotta find what's right for me
Oh yes, we were brave to go our separate ways
But these days I wonder who's gun I'm under, I am...

[Chorus]
Nobody's soldier
Marching to the rhythm of a lonely heart
I am nobody's soldier
When my battle is over, I'll be nobody's soldier

Life itself is war enough
I can't win for you, you can't lose for me
Broken hearts and dreams we left along the way
Will only gives us strength to fight another day
Maybe I just lived too hard and loved too much
But fighting win or lose, I'll be...

[Repeat Chorus]

Where do we begin to learn to love again
Find a place for me, and one day we'll be free

[Sax Solo]

When lovers part they leave their broken dreams behind
And their wounded hearts to heal, still I am...

[Repeat Chorus with Ad-Libs and Fade]

Opposites Attract lyrics - Natalie Cole

Well, well, well, well, well
You're not the image of
The man that's of my dreams
We don't see eye to eye
But you got me riding high
We're incompatible astrologically
All of the signs they do agree
That it's the nature of opposites
It must be in our chemistry

(opposites attract) yeah
(something just keeps me coming back)
(opposites attract)
Something about you, baby
(this feeling keeps me coming back)
Ooh, yeah, yeah
I say it looks like sunshine
You say it looks like rain
You've got your stubborn ways, yes, you do
And you know I'll never change
In a thousand ways we disagree

But the sweet vibrations from your touch
It's the magic of the chemistry
That makes me want it
Twice as much

(opposites attract) oh, keep coming
(something just keeps me coming back)
Keep coming back, keep coming back, ooh
(opposites attract) oh, keep coming
(this feeling keeps me coming back)
Hey, yeah, yeah, woh, woh, woh, woh
Hoo, hoo, hoo, woo, woo
Woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo
Ahh--
(opposites attract) yeah, yeah
(keeps me coming back)
Something about you, baby
(opposites attract) woo, woo, woo
(this feeling keeps me coming back)
(opposites attract)
Something about you, baby
(this feeling keeps me coming back)...

A Little Bit Of Heaven lyrics - Natalie Cole

The last guest has gone
I can tell you're as thankful as I
Good time was had by all

And a little wine, I know by that look
You've got other things on your mind
And I can't resist that sign

So turn out the lights and close the door
We need the night to be alone
Shut out the world, just let it spin
Why don't we make a little bit of heaven?

Just talk to my heart
Say the words that I want to hear
Darling, tonight I need you near

So turn out the light and close the door
We need some time to be alone
Shut out the world, just let it spin
And maybe we'll touch a little bit of heaven

Shut out the world, just let it spin
Maybe we'll touch a little bit of heaven

Heaven's right here for us
We don't need a mountain to climb, no, no, no
There's just the two of us
And the love between the lines

Turn out the light and close the door
We need the night to be alone
Shut out the world, just let it spin
Why don't we make a little bit of heaven?

Turn out the light and close that door
Maybe we'll find a little bit of heaven
Turn out the light, baby, and close the door
I know we can make a little bit of heaven

Honey, turn out the light, yeah, and close the door
Maybe we'll find a little bit of heaven
Turn out the light and close the door
Maybe we'll find, a little bit of heaven

Your Car (My Garage) lyrics - Natalie Cole

You've been driving all over town
You put your pedal to the metal
You've been getting around
Go get your thrills
That don't bother me
Spin your wheels
That don't bother me
But when you try to park
And I'm trying to sleep

No, no, no, you can't park it here
You can't park it here
It may be your car
But this is my garage
It may be your car
But this is my garage

Your love's been traveling way too many miles
You know you're out of control
Too long to stop it now
Go race your motor, ha
'Cause that don't bother me
I've lived without you
'Til it don't bother me
So before you park
While I'm trying to sleep

[Repeat Chorus]

[Sax Solo]

Ooh-woo...

Let's get one thing clear
You can't park it here
It may be your car
But this is my garage
It may be your car
But this is my garage

Drive your love on by
You won't see me cry
It may be your car
But this is my garage
It may be your car
But this is my garage

Ooh, baby, baby, baby, baby, yeah
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah
It may be your car
But this is my garage
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

And you can drive your love on by
You won't see me cry
It may be your car
But this is my garage
Yeah

Your car
It may be your car, baby
But I pay the rent
And it's my garage
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It's my garage

Don't you forget it
All alone
I said it's my garage
It may be your car
But so what
It's my garage
Oh, oh...
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Love Is On The Way lyrics - Natalie Cole

Ooh, hoo
You're the only one who knew why I was leaving
And you're the one who kept right on believing
I felt that I needed space to make it
I put a strain on love, I hope I didn't break it
But it's been so long
Now I'm coming home
(love) oh honey, I've been thinkin' 'bout our love all day
(love is on the way)
I'm comin' home baby (love), 'cause I just can't stay away
(love is on the way)
Ooh, I can hardly wait to see your face and kiss ya
And once I'm in your arms, you'll know how much
I've missed you, baby
All the lonely nights I longed to have you near me
Calling out your name, hoping you would hear me
But it's been so long
Now I'm comin' home
(love) hey, honey
I've been thinkin' 'bout our love all day
(love is on the way)

I'm comin' home, honey (love),ooh
'cause I just can't stay away
(love is on the way)
Oh (ooh), oh (ooh)
Hey, babe, if the love's still there the feeling won't be lost
Sure would like to pick up right where we left off
I'm gonna pack my bags and catch me an early flight
Love is on my mind, so I'll be home tonight
(love) yeah, baby, hoo,oh (love is on the way)
Love is on the way (love)
Hoo, hoo, yeah (love is on the way)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
(love is on the way, yeah, love is on the way, love is)
Love is on the way, yeah,
Love is on the way, ooh, baby
(love is on the way) oh, honey (yeah, love is on the way)
I've been thinking 'bout our love all day (love is)
Love (love), oh, ooh, ooh, yeah (love is on the way)
(love) my love is on the way (love is on the way)
Yes it is, I'm coming home, (love is on the way) baby
(yeah, love is on the way) I'm coming home, honey...

The Gift lyrics - Natalie Cole

Every captain must steer the wheel
Not by choice but from the voice that's in his ear
I have lived long and I've done much wrong
But I've survived through my lies, I'm still here

So all you people know what I say is true
That I'm here because of you
I have lived on, yes, I've made it through
You've returned your love to me

Well, I felt fire and I got tired
Of running from the truth
And I let people down and I wore the crown
Of being the biggest fool

So all you people know what I say is true
That I'm here because of you
I have lived on, yes, I've made it through
You've returned your love to me

There were times I had enough, I almost gave it up
But you reached out your heart to me
Look what you've done, now I've become the best
Oh, I'm the best I can be, oh, oh, oh

You've returned your love, the gift of love
Yes, you gave this gift to me

"Happy Love" (1981)

You Were Right Girl lyrics - Natalie Cole

It's hard to say how long its been, but once upon a time
You were my best friend, I'm sorry I hurt you but I loved him, loved him
You said I'd get hurt in the end, you tried to warn me with good advice
Instead of listening, I paid the price, yes I did, you told me back then
You said he'll love you, leave you, you said his heart was cold as ice
And you were right girl, yes, he played me for a fool, (you were right girl)
Hmm, it all came true, (you were right girl), I know
I should have known it all along, (you were right girl)
Yes, you were right and I was wrong, I thought you blamed him for your mistakes
That all your put downs were just sour grapes, you told me back then
That they'll be lyin, cryin' and it won't be his heart that breaks
And ooh, (you were right girl) you were right girl
He played me for a fool, (you were right girl) oh
It all came true, you were (you were right girl) right girl
Yes, I should have known it all along (you were right girl)
You were right girl, you were right and I was wrong
Oh, what made me think that I was different from you
That I could make him do what he wouldn't do for you
Now you told me back then I'd never change him, change him
But he'd change me before he's through, and ooh (you were right girl)
You were right girl, he played me for a fool, he really did
(You were right girl) well, it all came true, (you were right girl)
You were so right, I should have known it all along (you were right girl)
Oh, yes, you were right and I was wrong, oh, (you were right girl)
He really played me for a fool, (you were right girl)
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, it all came true (you were right girl)
yeah, (you were right girl) you were right girl
I should have known it all along, (you were righ girl)
You were right girlfriend, you were right and I was wrong, woo, woo, woo
(You were right girl) you were right my girl, (you were right girl)
You were right my girl, he played me for a great big fool

Nothin' But A Fool lyrics - Natalie Cole

So what do you think
Maybe he'll buy you a drink
And run his fingers through your hair
Apologize for having to stare
But he's never seen such a face
What's it doing in such a place
Says he knows a little spot
That he thinks you'll like a lot
So he takes you in his car
[Background repeats] (Hoo, hoo, hoo)
Says it isn't far
And you end up at his home
Ah, but you knew that's where you were going
And he turns his stereo on
Makes you feel like you belong
And you end up in his bed
You're great was all he said
[Chorus:]
Oh, you're nothin' but a fool
If you think that he loves you
Oh, you're nothin' but a fool
If you think that he cares
You're nothin' but a fool
If you think that he wants you
Oh, you're nothin' but a fool
If you think he cares
Yeah, yeah
So he lights a cigarette
[Background repeats:] (hoo, hoo, hoo)
Turns on the tv set
And you just want to be held for a while
He don't even wanna smile
So you try to tell a joke
He just lights another smoke
It's getting colder in that bed
You're great was all he said
Background repeats chorus
Oh, you're nothin' but a fool
You silly fool
If you think that he loves you
Ah, you're nothin' but great big fool
If you think he cares
You're nothin' but a fool, yes you
If you think that he wants you
Oh, you're nothin' but a fool
If you think he cares
[Musical Interlude]
Just a silly fool, ha
Never thought it would happen to you
Oh, ho, ho, ho
[Background repeats] (Hoo, hoo, hoo)
Now you'd really love stay
But he says he's got a busy day
And he'll call you tomorrow night
You make sure he's got your number right
He gives you money for a cab ride home
Suddenly you're all alone
Waiting for his call
And you're staring at the wall
Ah, you're nothin' but a fool
[Background repeats chorus]
If you think that he loves you
Ah, you're nothin' but a fool
Silly fool, ha
You never thought it would happen to you
(You're nothin' but a fool)
If you think that he wants you
Oh you're nothin' but a fool
If you think that he cares
You're nothin' but a fool
If you think that he loves you
Oh, you're nothin' but a fool
If you think he cares
You're nothin' but a fool...

Love & Kisses lyrics - Natalie Cole

Hmm, talking on the telephone early in the morning dawn, softly singing in your ear
A song that I wrote last night, it's so very hard my dear, you are there
And I am here, somehow words I try to say, they just don't seem to sound right
Conversation's getting thin and my patience is too, I gotta go I'll call you when
My show is through, oh, hello operator, give me a little more time
In the meantime get my baby on the line, please, in the meantime
Get my baby on that line, I'm sending love and kisses on the telephone wire
I hope he gets them in time, hmm, hmm, love and kisses across the pacific
Gonna send them to that baby of mine, yeah, gonna send them to that baby of mine

(how you doing....) sure do miss ya, I'd like to kiss ya
(what...) what's that you said my dear, this connection's not so clear
But if you said I love you, then you know that I feel the same way
Hope the kids are doing fine, do they still get to school on time
Oh by the way I really miss your face around about supper time
Conversation's gettin thin and my patience is too, gotta go
I'll call you when my show is through, I'm sending love and kisses
On the telephone wire, I hope he gets them in time
Oh, love and kisses across the pacific, gonna send them to that baby of mine
Hmm, gonna send them to that baby of mine
Oh, love and kisses, ooh, ooh, love and kisses

"Don't Look Back" (1980)

Don't Look Back lyrics - Natalie Cole

Everyday the population is growing and to find some peace of mind is something rare
Don't you get discouraged keep on going and don't you mind the way that the people turn and stare
Now how long can you keep on feeling guilty and tell me why should you feel bad about feeling good
Don't you know that the world is cold and filthy, aw yes it is, but if you're a special child
They know sometimes you'll be misunderstood, (you can never look back)
Yesterday is dead and gone, (don't you look back) your tomorrow is here today
Keep on fighting, a quitter never wins, hold your breath stick out your chin
Count to ten start again, everybody wants to be somebody
But they can't seem to see the forest for the trees, we just can't let our past
Hold back our future, oh, no, no, when it's all over but the shouting
Nothing is left but memories, looks like you could use a little bit of happiness
Now I know that it's really hard to find, but you owe it to yourself to have the very best
And only a fool will try to catch up to what he has left behind, (you can never look back)
No, no, 'cause yesterday is dead and gone, (don't you look back) your tomorrow is here today

And when you're crying, you need someone to hold on to
It's not the end of the world my friend, tip your hat, start again
And keep a positive direction, oh, keep your vision straight ahead
You can't lose with the stuff you use, we've come too far just to turn around, oh, oh,
Don't you look back, yesterday is dead and gone (don't you look back)
Your tomorrow is on the way and if you're fighting, people, a quitter never wins
Hold your breath stick out your chin, count to ten, start again, don't you look back
No, no, uh, oh, (don't look back) no 'cause we've come much too far
Just to turn around, uh, oh, oh, (repeat don't you look back) don't you look back now
Yesterday is dead and gone, don't you look back, your tomorrow is here today
And when you're crying, 'cause all your friends have forsaken you
Its not the end of the world my friend, just tip your hat start again
Keep on steppin' yaul, don't look back, don't turn your head around
Get up, get out on the good foot, keep on fightin,' yeah, hold your breath
Stick out your chin, count to ten and start again don't try it
You got to keep on movin' yaul, get, get, get up on the good foot

I've Seen Paradise lyrics - Natalie Cole

Hm, hm
Hm, hm, hm, hm
Just like a welcome fire
That comes in the cold
You make my heart warm
And a little more love is born
And I'm caught up once again on you
Soft as a rose, your tenderness glows
But you're so strong
And I know I'm gonna love you long
Well, crazy maybe
But I've seen paradise
Here in your eyes
I'm in seventh heaven
Ooh, there's nothing quite
Like spending your life
With a special someone
It feels so right
When the lights are out
And I'm in the dark
I'm not afraid, no
Long as I can get a piece of your heart
And the wind sighs
I love you
Specially when we touch
I need it so much
And I'm glad that we found love
Let the record show that I know that I've
Seen paradise here in your eyes
I'm in seventh heaven
Ooh, there's nothing quite
Like spending your life
With a special someone
It feels so right
Hmm, ooh (paradise)
Hey, I'm in para, para-dise, yeah
I'm in paradise, you know
You know that I like, you know that I like
You know that I like to be in paradise
(Paradise) I'm in paradise
And for those who think that there's no such thing
As eternity, they should take a look at you and me
We have got the perfect harmony
Specially when we touch
You know I need it, oh, so much
I'm in heaven specially when I'm with you, hey
I'm in paradise (paradise)
I'm in paradise, paradise and a
Here in your life
Here in your eyes (paradise)
Oh really, I'm in paradise
You know that I like, you know that I like
You know that I like to be in paradise
(Paradise) I wanna move with you
I wanna groove you, baby
With me, with me in paradise
I said I'm in paradise
Ooh, ooh, Hoo (paradise)
Yeah, to be in paradise with you and me
To be enough, paradise here in your eyes
Woh, woh, woh, woh, woh
You that I like, you know that I like
You know that I like, you know that I like
You know that I like
You know that I like, I like
I like to be in paradise
Spending my life, spending my life
Spending my life, spending my life
Spending all my life with you
Here in paradise, wooh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hold On lyrics - Natalie Cole

You know, of all the things in the world I'd miss
It would probably be music and love
They say you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
That's so true

Even though we still take it for granted
And I used to be like that but not anymore
'Cause I found out what love really means
Love means happiness and dedication

Love will sometimes bring complications
But you must have faith and a whole lot of trust
Most of all you can never give up just

Hold on, hold on
Hold on to your good thing, yeah
(Hold on, hold on)
Forget about the small things
(Hold on, hold on)
Do it for love, do it for love

And remember that love is a feeling
But it's also an action, yes
You've got to give sometime
If you want to get back some, well

And when all the king's horses
And even all the king's men
Can't put it together again
That is exactly when you've got to

Hold on, hold on
Hold on to what you've got
(Hold on, hold on)
It's the little things that mean alot
(Hold on, hold on)
Do it for love, do it for love

In spite of everything, no matter what
You've got to hold on
(You gotta hold on)

Hold on, hmm, hmm
Hmm, ooh, oh, oh

You're so hard headed
'Cause you feel that you're right
Well, tell me how you gonna feel
In the middle of the night
All alone, all alone?

I know, I know
It doesn't matter who's right or wrong
If you feel so inclined
To blame that shame on someone else

Ooh, stop and think about it
Point the finger at yourself
Ooh, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Hold on to your good thing
(Hold on)

Forget about the small hold on things
(Hold on)
And hold on
Hold on, oh hold on
(Hold on)

Real tight in spite of everything
Hold on
(Hold on)
When you feel like walking out that door

Stairway To The Stars lyrics - Natalie Cole

There's a silver trail of moonlight leading upward to the sky
And the night is like a velvet lullaby
There's a heaven of blue
And we'll go there, just you and I

Let's build a stairway to the stars
And climb that stairway to the stars
With love beside us to fill the night with a song

We'll hear the sound of violins
Out yonder where the blue begins
The moon will guide us as we go drifting along

Can't we sail away on a lazy daisy petal
Over the rim of the hill?
Can't we sail away on a little dream
And settle high on the crest of a thrill?

Let's build a stairway to the stars
A lovely stairway to the stars
It would be heaven to climb to heaven with you

Let's build a stairway to the stars
A lovely stairway to the stars
It would be heaven to climb to heaven with you

Someone That I Used To Love lyrics - Natalie Cole

When I wake up each morning trying to find myself
And if I'm ever the least unsure, I always remind myself
Though you're someone in this world that I'll always choose to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

As for me it's getting down to the last unspoken part
When you must begin to ease the pain of a broken heart
Tell me why should I even care if I have to lose your love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

Yet it wasn't enough for you
All the love I had to give
I did my best to keep you satisfied
I guess you'll never know how much I tried, I really tried

And if ever our paths should cross again
Well, you won't find me being the one to get lost again
Once I had so much to give but you just refused my love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

I did my best to keep you satisfied
I guess you'll never know how much I tried, I really tried

When I wake up each morning trying to find myself
And if I'm ever the least unsure, I always remind myself
Though you're someone in this world that I'll always choose to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

Though you're someone in this world that I'll always choose to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

Beautiful Dreamer lyrics - Natalie Cole

Beautiful dreamer, you are like magic to me
'Cause you share all your love
And your life and your love is so fine in my life
It's just what I've been looking for
Searching for and you care
Beautiful dreamer, not an illusion to me
You know I can tell by the way that you've taken my hand
In a moment of sadness your gladness is there to surround me
Astound me and you care
I've seen all the people (waiting at the station)
Waiting at the station
(no imagination) No imagination
They're too busy doing nothing
Making all kinds of arrangements
(Nothing's really) But nothing's really changing them
(Changing them)
They're (they're) still asking why (why) their well is dry
I tried to tell them that love is the answer
They need a beautiful dreamer
If I could I'd share you with them
Oh, but you know it took so very long to find what I've needed
And my greatest obsession is doing my best
Just to keep you and love you 'cause you care
You're one in a million
(Always giving into) Always giving in to
(me whenever I begin to) me whenever I begin to act
A little like I'm crazy
Still (still you never faulter) you never faulter
(never try to alter) or never try to alter my integrity
How I could I not be proud to have your wisdom
You're such a beautiful dreamer (beautiful dreamer)
You are like magic to me
'Cause you share all your love
And your life (and your life)
And your love is so fine
(So fine in my life) in my life
And you know its just what I've been searching for
Looking for and you care
(Beautiful) beautiful dreamer (dreamer)

"I Love You So" (1979)

I Love You So lyrics - Natalie Cole

Hey, I wanna love you, I wanna love you tonight
Hey, I wanna love you, I wanna love you tonight
(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I love you so)
Words can't express all that I feel for you
There's nothing here on earth can even compare with you
'cause your love, your love keeps me alive
And when I feel you, baby, it's deep down inside
Have I told you lately that
Yeah, (oh) yeah, yeah, yeah
(oh, oh, oh) woh, woh, woh (oh) woh (oh, oh) I love, I love (I love you so)
I love you so
Oh, you are the reason
You're why I feel so brand new
And from this moment on
I'm gonna dedicate my whole life to serving you
'cause your love, your love keeps me alive, yeah

Your love, your love, your love keeps me alive
Your love, your love keeps me alive
Have I told you lately that

You're So Good lyrics - Natalie Cole

I've got one,
I've got two,
I've got three exciting reason for loving you

You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good

When you move the way you do
Well I can tell that your moves were made for two

You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good

When we're together movin' through the night
You let me know that you're with me tonight
And I'm savin' all my love for you

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good

You've got me
All the way
And baby I just want to say

You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so good

It's Been You lyrics - Natalie Cole

Baby, I've been through
So many changes
In my life time
The love that I've searched for
Was right here beside me
All the time
What I was out there looking for
I didn't know I had it all the time
The dreams that I dream
They all faded so quickly
Right into thin air
The lovers I clinged too
I never got used to like they were never there
It's been you, baby
All the time-you know
I've seen a lot'ta things, you know, I have
But your love stayed on my mind
Oh! Lord
La la la la la la la la la la

It's been you, baby
ALL THE TIME
Oh! You been a friend to me
You've stood by me patiently,
I know I love you now
Some way, some way, somehow
Cause
It's been you, baby
All the time, baby
All the time, baby
All the time, baby
All the time, baby
I didn't know I had it all the time
It's been you, baby
All the time

Your Lonely Heart lyrics - Natalie Cole

Here you are right by my side
Words cannot express how I feel
Being this close to you
Heaven seems much nearer in your eyes
I wish that I could touch your lonely heart
I can see your face and I start to trembling all inside
Don't know why but it's true
We're so close and yet so far away
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart
Open up and let my light inside
I just wanna be your friend
Let's forget about the tears we've cried
Darling I just wanna love you
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart
Open up and let my light inside
I just wanna be your friend
Let's forget about our foolish pride
Darling I just wanna love you
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Here we are together now
Wanting you but don't know how
Knowing I care for you
Even if we have to start all over again
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart
Open up and let my light inside
I just wanna be your friend
Let's forget about the tears we've cried
Darling I just wanna love you
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart
Open up and let my light inside
I just wanna be your friend
Let's forget about our foolish pride
Darling I just wanna love you
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart
Open up and let my light inside
I just wanna be your friend
Let's forget about the tears we've cried
Darling I just wanna love you
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart
(Open up and let my light inside) Oh--
(I just wanna be your friend) I just wanna be your friend
(Let's forget about the tears we cried)
Ooh, hoo my darling I just wanna love you
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart
(Open up and let my light inside) Open up, let my light inside
(I just wanna be your friend) I just wanna be your friend
(Let's forget about our foolish pride) Ooh, hoo my darling I just wanna love you
Wish that I could touch your lonely heart...

The Winner lyrics - Natalie Cole

In this world of make believe I must confess
To be number one you've got to do it better
And if you strive to be happy you'll find success
Perspectively you've got to pull it together
Nothing good will come to you if you don't see
A reason for victory
Everybody loves the winner
Only the winner can really make things happen
Everybody loves the winner, so be the winner, I know you are
If there's something you'd like to do you've never done
Don't let fear stand in your way
Just collect your dreams and thoughts and get on the run
I wouldn't wait another day
You can be the best in everything you do
When it thawls out, it's all up to you
Everybody loves the winner (everybody loves the winner)
Only a winner can really make things happen
Everybody loves a winner (everybody loves a winner)
So be the winner you are
Be a winner, ooh (yes you can, yes you can, yes you can)

Be a winner, ooh (yes you can, yes you can, yes you can)
Be a winner, a winner, a winner, yes you can
'cause everybody (everybody) loves (loves a winner)
The winner, so be a winner
You can only make things happen
Everybody (everybody) loves a winner (loves a winner)
So be the winner, I know you are
Every (everybody), everybody, (loves a winner)
Really loves the winner, (so be a winner)
Only the winner can really make things happen
Everybody (everybody) loves the winner (loves a winner)
So be a winner (so be a winner), I know you are if you really try
Be a winner, you know you can, you know you can
You know you can be a winner
(yes you can, yes you can, yes you can)
Scat (yes you can, yes you can, yes you can)
Scat
(everybody) yeah, (loves a winner)
Scat
(everybody loves a winner)
(everybody) everybody really loves a winner (loves a winner)!
