  • Like a drum my heart was beating,
    And your kiss was sweet as wine,
    But the joys of love are fleeting
    For Pierrot and Columbine.
    • Song The Carnival Is Over.
  • The glow has gone forever
    And our dreams have turned to dust;
    I don't know how I can go on,
    And yet I know I must.
    • Song No Sad Songs for Me.
  • If you see my darling
    Out there in the crowd,
    Say I still remember
    Promises we vowed.
    Yesterday was dreaming,
    But my dream came tumbling down.
    Call the boys and tell them,
    Say I won't be there.
    • Song Say I Won't Be There.
  • Sing, sweet nightingale,
    Sing me a song of a night never-ending,
    Sing, sweet nightingale,
    And I'll try to pretend
    That tomorrow's nowhere near
    And there's nothing to fear.
    • Song Morning Please Don't Come.
  • Breakaway, the breeze is sighin'
    Breakaway, the time is flyin'
    So, I'm gonna pack a bag and get my coat
    Lock my door and leave a note
    Take a train or take a boat
    Well, I'm gonna breakaway.
    • Song Breakaway.
  • It would take a miracle,
    But someday maybe I'll find
    That I'm in the loving arms of someone
    That I'll know, know he's the someone
    Who'll kiss all the heartache away,
    And come that day
    I won't mind losing you.
    • Song Losing You.
  • Hey there, Georgy girl
    Why do all the boys just pass you by?
    Could it be you just don't try or is it the clothes you wear?

    You're always window shopping but never stopping to buy
    So shed those dowdy feathers and fly - a little bit
    • Song Georgy Girl.
  • High in the sky is a bird on a wing
    Please carry me with you
    Far far away from the mad rushing crowd
    Please carry me with you
    • Song Island of Dreams.
  • Oh my love, oh my love, I've cried for you so much,
    Lonely nights without sleeping, while I longed for your touch.
    Now your lips can't evade the heartache I've known,
    Come with me to a world of our own.
    • Song A World of Our Own.
  • I walk where once the grass was green
    And mourn the lark that sings no more
    What bird could sing whose eyes have seen
    Broken blossoms on the field of war?
    • Song Broken Blossoms.
  • When you smile at me well I feel so good
    Come on home
    I can't be mad at you like I know I should
    Come on home.
    Well you took me for a ride
    And I thought my love had died;
    Still I need you by my side
    So come on home.
    • Song Come on Home.
  • If they gave me a fortune,
    My treasure would be small:
    I could lose it all tomorrow
    And never mind at all.
    But if I should lose your love, dear,
    I don't know what I'd do,
    For I know I'll never find another you.
    • Song I'll Never Find Another You.
  • The rains tumble down in the sky,
    Young swallows have learned how to fly,
    The leaves that were green are no longer so green,
    And it looks like the summer is over.
    • Song Summer Is Over.
  • So let me fly please lead me and I'll follow you
    Above the clouds beyond the stormy sea
    I long to share a world of sweet contentment there
    In that bright land where grows the olive tree.
    • Song The Olive Tree.
  • Here I stand, feeling lost and so alone.
    Take my hand; don't desert me now,
    Please don't hurt me now.
    • Song Walk With Me.
