As Right Now

Original and similar lyrics
You're still the lady of my dreams You're still my high school beauty queen To me it's still magic when we touch And I have never loved you so much As right now As right now You're still my actress on the screen Still the leading lady in my scenes To me it's still magic when we touch And I've still never loved someone so much As right now As right now As right now You're still the one I'm with when I'm alone And you're still the lover calling on my phone To me it's still magic when we touch And I will never love someone so much As right now As right now As right now As right now As right now As right now As right now...

I Have Dreamed

TOM JONES "I (Who Have Nothing)"
I have dreamed that your arms are lovely And I have dreamed what a joy you'll be I have dreamed ev'ry word you'll whisper When you're close, close to me How you look in the glow of evening I have dreamed and enjoyed the view In these dreams I've loved you so That by now I think I know What it's like to be loved by you I will love being loved by you [instrumental] In these dreams I've loved you so That by now I think I know What it's like to be loved by you I will love being loved by you

I Could Never Touch You Like You Do

JACKYL "Push Comes To Shove"
I yearn to touch you in the morning I yearn to touch you late at night I can start the fire, but I can't control the flame The love in your hand not other hand could do the same I could build a building straight up to the sky But you can take me higher, here's the reason why [Chorus:] I could never touch you I could never touch you like you do I could never touch you No matter how much I really wanted to I could never touch you Like you do I could never touch you I could never touch you like you do The overflow of love keeps flowing More than any man could ever want I can swim forever in your garden lake The magic in your hand, it takes your magic for the dam to break And I would crawl across burning desert sand Just to have the voodoo that's in your hand [Chorus] And when the morning comes I can feel your heart beat next to mine Girl you show me all I need to see You take me where I want to be [Chorus]

The Touch Of Your Hand

JAMIE LAWSON
Well it bent and it bent til it finally broke And you meant and you meant every word that you spoke You were cruel you were cruel but as I understand I must travel through hell for the touch of your hand Well I lied and I lied til the truth had grown free And you tried and you tried to get the better of me And did it hurt did it hurt when the life that you'd planned Crumbled and fell for the touch of my hand? I will love you like you no other And I will love you for my own And I will never take another We will never be alone I will swallow I will swallow there is in my pride And I will follow I will follow just to be by your side And if still you don't love me you've tried but you can't I'll have done all I could for the touch of your hand So tomorrow tomorrow the dawn as it breaks I have begged stole and borrowed each wondrous mistake And I will swear on my life as I take a stand I am guilty as sin for the touch of your hand I will love you like you no other And I will love you for my own If you ever take another We will both wake up alone I have loved you I have loved you for all that I'm worth I have done all I could to move heaven and earth Just to be there beside you wherever you stand For the grace of your love and the touch of your hand For the grace of your love and the touch of your hand

This Magic Moment / True Love (Medley)

AARON NEVILLE "My True Story"
This magic moment, so different and so new, Like any other until I kissed you. And then it happened, it took me by surprise I know you felt it, too, by the look in your eyes. Sweeter than wine, softer than a summer night, Everything I wanna have is when I pull you tight. This magic moment, your ear close, close to mine Will last forever, forever, till the end of the time. Magic, magic, magic, magic. Sweeter than wine, softer than a summer night, Everything I wanna have is when I pull you tight. This magic moment while your lips are close to mine Will last forever, forever till the end of the time. Magic, magic, magic, magic. Magic, magic, magic, magic. If you cry, my heart will break Darling, that you moving I can take. And if I saw a tear fall from your eye Darling, don’t you know that I would die? True love, true love, true love, true love. If you cry, I don’t know what I’d do Darling, I am so in love with you. And if I heard that I had caused you pain My tears will pour like the rain. True love, true love, true love, true love.

We Can't Make It Here

JAMES MCMURTRY "Childish Things"
Vietnam Vet with a cardboard sign Sitting there by the left turn line Flag on the wheelchair flapping in the breeze One leg missing, both hands free No one's paying much mind to him The V.A. budget's stretched so thin And there's more comin' home from the Mideast war We can't make it here anymore That big ol' building was the textile mill It fed our kids and it paid our bills But they turned us out and they closed the doors We can't make it here anymore See all those pallets piled up on the loading dock They're just gonna set there till they rot 'Cause there's nothing to ship, nothing to pack Just busted concrete and rusted tracks Empty storefronts around the square There's a needle in the gutter and glass everywhere You don't come down here 'less you're looking to score We can't make it here anymore The bar's still open but man it's slow The tip jar's light and the register's low The bartender don't have much to say The regular crowd gets thinner each day Some have maxed out all their credit cards Some are working two jobs and living in cars Minimum wage won't pay for a roof, won't pay for a drink If you gotta have proof just try it yourself Mr. CEO See how far 5.15 an hour will go Take a part time job at one of your stores Bet you can't make it here anymore High school girl with a bourgeois dream Just like the pictures in the magazine She found on the floor of the laundromat A woman with kids can forget all that If she comes up pregnant what'll she do Forget the career, forget about school Can she live on faith? live on hope? High on Jesus or hooked on dope When it's way too late to just say no You can't make it here anymore Now I'm stocking shirts in the Wal-Mart store Just like the ones we made before 'Cept this one came from Singapore I guess we can't make it here anymore Should I hate a people for the shade of their skin Or the shape of their eyes or the shape I'm in Should I hate 'em for having our jobs today No I hate the men sent the jobs away I can see them all now, they haunt my dreams All lily white and squeaky clean They've never known want, they'll never know need Their shit don't stink and their kids won't bleed Their kids won't bleed in the damn little war And we can't make it here anymore Will work for food Will die for oil Will kill for power and to us the spoils The billionaires get to pay less tax The working poor get to fall through the cracks Let 'em eat jellybeans let 'em eat cake Let 'em eat shit, whatever it takes They can join the Air Force, or join the Corps If they can't make it here anymore And that's how it is That's what we got If the president wants to admit it or not You can read it in the paper Read it on the wall Hear it on the wind If you're listening at all Get out of that limo Look us in the eye Call us on the cell phone Tell us all why In Dayton, Ohio Or Portland, Maine Or a cotton gin out on the great high plains That's done closed down along with the school And the hospital and the swimming pool Dust devils dance in the noonday heat There's rats in the alley And trash in the street Gang graffiti on a boxcar door We can't make it here anymore
