Lyrics: Forever You Have My Heart

“Forever You Have My Heart” by The Mixed Emotions

I have cried (I have cried) so very hard (so very hard)

Since we have been apart

Wherever you go (‘ever you go) you’ll always be loved (always be loved)

Forever you have my heart

 

It’s been a short time, I’ve cried many tears

Life is so grim since you’ve gone

Though you have left my side (my love) my love, my love

Forever you have my heart

 

Return to me please

My heart for you grieves

My arms will be waiting for you

 

Please come back to stay ’cause while you’re away

My life, my love, my thrills, my dreams

 

I’ll wait for that one day to come (day to come) we’ll never have to part (have to part)

Remember this, I promise you

Forever you have my heart

Forever you have my heart

Forever you have my heart

Lyrics: I Love You

“I Love You” by The Grasshoppers, 1964

Well I saw you and you glanced at me

And I knew right away that you would always be

My only true love, and now I’ve run off the time*

I thought forever that you’d be mine

 

I love you, I love you

I love you, my love

I love you forever, ever, ever and ever

 

Well now when I saw you, love, standing in the dark

And slowly but surely you were breaking my heart

I left you with your hand* and I ran away

But I want you to know that until this day

 

I love you, I love you

I love you, my love

I love you forever, ever, ever and ever

 

Well, now rock!

 

Well I love you, I love you

I love you,  my love

I love you forever, ever, ever and ever

 

Well now say when I saw you, love, standing in the dark

And slowly but surely you were breaking my heart

I wanted to say that I love you

I knew right away that you were making me blue

 

I love you, I love you

I love you, my love

I love you forever and ever and ever

Grrr, rock!

Lyrics: I Know I’ve Had My Chance

** I’m sorry I don’t have the audio for this, but I’ve heard the song and it’s a lovely, bittersweet ballad sung by Ben. I jotted down the lyrics, which were probably written by Ric Ocasek, though I don’t know that for sure. **

“I Know I’ve Had My Chance” by Cap’n Swing

I can’t remember when we had some time to spend

Seems like it’s been a year or two

I was traveling on the road, and you stayed at home and sewed

You stitched the lonely side of you

 

We were always friends pulling at different ends

And now you tell me that we’re through

I know I’ve had my chance, I know I’ve had my chance

I know I’ve had my chance

 

Now that you’ve given me just what I need to see

I hope that you will be just fine

When love is on the stray and feelings fade away

There ain’t no pushing back in time

 

We were always friends pulling at different ends

And now you tell me that we’re through

I know I’ve had my chance, I know I’ve had my chance

I know I’ve had my chance

 

I know I’ve had my chance (missing you… missing you, babe)

I know I’ve had my chance

I know I’ve had my chance

Lyrics: When You Gonna Lay Me Down

When You Gonna Lay Me Down by The Cars

I was starting to listen to you, you get cheap talk from the avenue

Come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

You were feeding me the ugly stuff, I couldn’t tell if it was a bluff

Come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

 

And I was hung up on your mystery

And you were trying to beg to save my sanity

 

I wanted to be your flair and run my fingers through you long blonde hair

Come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

 

And I was hung up on your mystery

And you were trying to beg to save my sanity

 

I wanted to follow you home and ring you up on the telephone

Come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

I guess I wanted to be your flair and run my fingers through your long blonde hair

C’mon honey when you gonna lay me down

 

I said come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

I said come on honey, when you gonna lay me down?

 

Lyrics: Will You Still Love Me Tonight

Will You Still Love Me Tonight by Cap’n Swing

I’ve put this off for a long time:  trying to decipher the lyrics to this rockin’ song. The unfortunate sound quality makes it brutal! Still, I’ll do my best because I love it and Ben sings it, and because I’m sure the words are so cool. Feel free to help me out if you’ve got any insights for me — it’s a bit of a mess. 

I’ve been a … A happy man

You don’t have to twist my head to see where we landed, yeah

Yeah, I’ve had my share of the pleasure

I’ve had my fill of man

 

Will you still love me tonight

We can make it until the twilight

Will you still love me tonight

 

I’ve been a misdemeanor over here, breaking the law

I had a … person up here, taking a fall

I hear the…

I’m having a ball, yeah

 

Will you still love me tonight

Can we make it to the twilight

Will you still love me tonight

 

Would you love me tonight? Would you love me tonight, tonight?

Would you love me tonight? … Alright…

 

I hopped a freight train to nowhere, it didn’t take long

A heard hundred who that told me that they couldn’t be wrong, yeah

And it was still at a party and you … too long, alright

 

Will you still love me tonight

Could you make it until the twilight

Will you still love me tonight

 

Would you love me tonight? Would you love me tonight, tonight? Would you love me tonight?

…Alright… shake it up

[Ben: “Thank you.” Ric: “We’re off for a little bit, uh… we’ll be right back. Thank you.” Ben: “Stick around, get high, enjoy yourself.”]

Lyrics: Silver

Silver (written by Ric Ocasek, ©2005)

Appearing as track five on Ric’s 2005 solo album Nexterday, “Silver” was apparently written as Ric’s tribute to Benjamin. Greg Hawkes played the keyboards.

You were my silver, you were my gold

You were all the things that can’t be told.

You were my star falling through the night

You were the one that showed me grand delight

I can’t see you, but I need you, you’re gone… yeah, you’re gone… yeah, you’re gone away

 

You were my right hand, you were my friend

You were always strong until the end

You were my good time, you were my rave

You’re the one that always set the stage

What I once knew, now I miss you, you’re gone… yeah, you’re gone… yeah, you’re gone away

 

Now I spend my lonely nights wishing you were here to make things right

And turn my darkness into light

 

‘Cause you were my party, you were my tea

You’re the one that had some faith in me

You’re what I once knew, now I miss you, you’re gone… you’re gone… you’re gone away

 

You were my good time, you were my rave… you’re the one that always set the stage….
