A Kind Of Magic     [назад]

It's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,
A kind of magic,
One dream, one soul, one prize,
One goal, one golden glance of what should be,
It's a kind of magic,
One shaft of light that shows the way,
No mortal man can win this day,
It's a kind of magic,
The bell that rings inside your mind,
Is challenging the doors of time,
It's a kind of magic,
The waiting seems eternity,
The day will down of sanity,
Is this the kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,
There can be only one,
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done,
This flame that burns inside of me,
I'm here in secret harmonies
It's a kind of magic,
The bell that rings inside your mind,
Is challenging the doors of time,
It's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,
The rage that lasts a thousand years,
Will soon be, will soon be,
Will soon be done,
This is a kind of magic,
There can be only one,
The rage that lasts a thousand years,
Will soon be done,
Magic - it's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,
Magic, magic, magic, magic,
It's magic,
It's a kind of magic.
One Year Of Love

Just one year of love
Is better than a lifetime alone,
One sentimental moment in your arms
Is like a shooting star right through my heart.
It's always a rainy day without you,
I'm a prisoner of love inside you -
I'm falling apart all around you - yeah.
My heart cries out to your heart,
I'm lonely but you can save me,
My hand reaches out for your hand,
I'm cold but you light the fire in me,
My lips search for your lips,
I'm hungry for your touch,
There' so much left unspoken
And all I can do is surrender
To the moment just surrender,
And no one ever told me that love would hurt so much,
Ooh yes it hurts,
And pain is so close to pleasure,
And all I can do is surrender to your love,
Just surrender to your love.
Just one year of love
Is better than a lifetime alone,
One sentimental moment in your arms
Is like a shooting star right through my heart.
It's always a rainy day without you,
I'm a prisoner of love inside you,
I'm falling apart all around you,
And all I can do is surrender.
Pain Is So Close To Pleasure     [назад]

Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, oh yeah,
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life,
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure everybody knows,
One day we love each other then we're fighting one another all the time,
When I was young and just getting started,
And people talked to me they sounded broken hearted,
Then I grew up and got my imagination
And all I wanted was to start a new relation,
I was looking for some good old satisfaction,
But pain is all I got when all I needed was some love and affection,
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, yeah, yeah,
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life,
Pain and pleasure. Ooh, Ooh, pain and pleasure,
When your plans go wrong and you turn out the light,
But inside of yout mind you have to put up a fight,
Where are the answers that we're all searching for,
There's nothing is this world to be sure of anymore,
Some days you're feeling good, some days you're feeling bad,
But if you're feeling happy someone else is always sad,
Let the sweetness on love wipe the tears from your face,
For better for worse, so let's make the best of the rest of our years,
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, I told you so,
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life,
Pain and pleasure ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, yeah, yeah,
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life,
All your life.
Pain - pleasure...
Friends Will Be Friends

Another red letter day,
So the pound has dropped and the children are creating,
The other half ran away,
Taking all the cash and leaving you with the lumber,
Got a pain in the chest,
Doctors on strike what you need is a rest.
It's not easy love, but you've got friends you can trust,
Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention.
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends right till the end.
How it's beautiful day,
The postman delivered a letter from your lover,
Only a phone call away,
You tried to track him down but somebody stole his number.
As a matter of fact,
You're getting used to life without him in your way.
It's so easy now, cos you got friends you can trust,
Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends right till the end.
It's so easy now, cos you got friends you can trust,
Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends right till the end.
Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost.
Hold out your hand cos right till the end -

Who Wants To Live Forever     [назад]

There's no time for us,
There's no place for us,
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us.
Who wants to live forever,
Who wants to live forever.....?
There's no chance for us,
It's all decidede for us,
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us.
Who wants to live forever.
Who dares to live forever,
When love must die.
But touch my tears with your lips,
Touch my world with your fingertips,
And we can have forever,
And we can love forever,
Forever is our today,
Who wants to live forever,
Who wants to live forever,
Forever is our today,
Who waits forever anyway?
