Lyrics: Stay The Night

Stay The Night by Benjamin Orr (written by Benjamin Orr and Diane Page, ©1983)

 

Sometimes you twist, always insist that you know a way

Should I let go now, would I even know how to, anyway?

And all that matters is turned around over and over again

We’re at full circle, it comes down to now again

 

Stay the night… let a little love show

Stay the night, it’s alright yeah

Stay the night… don’t say you don’t know

Stay the night

 

Trying so hard to hold onto you, can you show me how?

If I seem cautious, maybe I’m lost, can you show me now?

And all that matters is turned around over and over again

We’re at full circle, it comes down to now again

 

Stay the night… let a little love show

Stay the night, it’s alright

Stay the night… you lead, I’ll follow

Stay the night, stay tonight

 

In all the making, yours for the taking, shaking me down

You see what we’ve got, you know what it’s not that turns you upside down

And all that matters is turned around over and over again

We’re at full circle, it comes down to now again

 

Stay the night, let a little love show

Stay the night, don’t say you don’t know

Stay the night, you lead, I’ll follow

Stay the night, ho ho

 

Stay the night, c’mon stay the night

Stay the night, yeah

 

Stay the night, let a little love show

Stay the night, stay the night

Stay the night… don’t say you don’t know

Stay the night, it’s alright, just stay the night

 

Stay the night… let a little love show

Stay the night, stay tonight

Stay the night… don’t say you don’t know

Stay the night… you lead, I’ll follow

Lyrics: In Circles

In Circles by Benjamin Orr (written by Benjamin Orr and Diane Grey Page ©1983)

 

Give me one good reason, tell me how you feel

Well is it just a teaser, or is it all too real?

You slip and I start thinking, not a lot to say

Well show me something different, new along the way

 

Just spinning me in circles, never get the fix I need

Oh oh, down around in circles, it’s always you and never me

 

First you tell me one thing, then you tell me two

If someone here is crazy, I base the bet on you

 

Just spinning me in circles, never get the fix I need

Ho ho, down around in circles, it’s always you and never me no, no

 

Why do you refuse (refuse) to play it by the rules all the time?

You know (you know) it really drives me wild.

 

You slip and I start thinking, not a lot to say

Well show me something different, new along the way

 

Just spinning me in circles, never get the fix I need

Ho ho, down around in circles, it’s always you and never me, no, no

 

Why do you refuse (you choose) to play it by the rules all the time?

You know (you know) it really drives me wild.

 

Give me one good reason, tell me how you feel

Well is it just a teaser, or is it all too real?

 

Just spinning me in circles, never get the fix I need

Ho ho, down around in circles, it’s always you and never me, yeah yeah

 

How you love me like crazy and you could never see

And you love me like crazy

 

How you love me like crazy and you could never see

And I want you like crazy, only you talk to me

 

And you love me like crazy, but you could never see

Always you can’t be beat, yeah

 

And I want you like crazy and you could never see it

Talk to me, no no no

 

And you love me like crazy and you could never see

But you could never see it

Lyrics: Too Hot To Stop

Too Hot To Stop by Benjamin Orr  (written by Benjamin Orr and Diane Grey Page ©1985)

 

It’s about time you told me what you wanted
It’s about time you showed me what goes where
There’s a lot on the line, oh, it’s back to where we started
It’s about time, and maybe I don’t care

It’s about time, counted back to zero
There’s a lot on the line, time to clean the air
Keep it in mind, oh, it all goes out the window
It’s about time, well, I can’t see it but I know it’s there

Remember it’s too hot to stop
Remember well, too hot to stop

It’s about time you gotta face up the factor
It’s about time ‘cause it’s been on my mind
There’s a lot on the line, if it’s left to any question
It’s about time, well, you can call it in anytime

Remember it’s too hot to stop
Remember too hot to stop

You make it so hard getting through to ya
It’s not the time for throw away
Just like it’s all something new to ya
You can hang on or run away

It’s about time you start to get the picture
It’s about time you gotta take a look around
Keep it in mind because you’re almost over limit
It’s about time and it’s all about to come down

It’s about time you gotta wake up, smell the coffee
It’s about time you gotta open up your eyes
There’s a lot on the line, so tired of hearing ‘sorry’
It’s about time, ‘cause a part of me likes surprise

Remember well, it’s too hot to stop
Remember too hot to stop

Well, you make it so hard getting through to ya
It’s not the time for throw away
Just like it’s all something new to ya
You can hang on or run away

It’s about time you told me what you wanted
It’s about time, it’s about time, yeah
Keep it in mind, oh, it’s back to where we started
It’s about time, it’s in your mind, about time

Remember it’s too hot to stop
Remember too hot to stop…

Lyrics: Midnight Dancer

Midnight Dancer by The Cars (written by Ric Ocasek ©1983)

You come out like a dancer who’s been leaping for her life

You’re tired of open-end romancers who never reach the perfect height… that’s right

 

You fall out like a window dresser in your sure-to-shade attire

And with a touch of grace and splendor and a vision from afar

 

Midnight dancer, keep on dancing through the night

Midnight dancer, keep on dancing til it’s tight, alright

Midnight dancer

 

You fall out like a beauty who’s been born to catch the eye

When you spin and cause commotion you can laugh away and fly… fly

 

Midnight dancer, keep on dancing through the night

Midnight dancer, keep on dancing til it’s tight

Well midnight dancer, midnight dancer

Midnight dancer, midnight dancer

Midnight dancer, midnight dancer

Midnight dancer…

Lyrics: Pink Champagne

Pink Champagne by The Grasshoppers (written by Ben Orzechowski, 1965)

Well, pink champagne and red, red roses

For you, my love, there will be, yeah

Pink champagne and red, red roses

If you spend your life with me

 

You are my angel from above

I’ll never cast away your love

If you’ll just say you’ll linger with me

Pink champagne and roses there will be

 

Sometimes a heart can be the very start

So, my dear… and come right here

 

Pink champagne and red, red roses

For you, my love, there will be, yeah

Pink champagne and red, red roses

If you spend your life with me

With me

With me

With me

Lyrics: You’re All I’ve Got Tonight

You’re All I’ve Got Tonight by The Cars (written by Ric Ocasek, ©1979)

I don’t care if you hurt me some more
I don’t care if you even the score
You can knock me and I don’t care
Well, you can mock me, I don’t care
You can rock me just about anywhere
It’s alright

‘Cause you’re all I’ve got tonight
You’re all I’ve got tonight
You’re all I’ve got tonight
I need you tonight
I need you tonight

I don’t care if you use me again
I don’t care if you abuse me again
You can make me I don’t care
And you can fake me I don’t care
And you can love me just about anywhere
It’s alright

‘Cause you’re all I’ve got tonight
You’re all I’ve got tonight
You’re all I’ve got tonight
I need you tonight
I said, I need you tonight

I don’t want to feel sorry for you
You don’t have to make believe it’s you
You can pump me I don’t care
You can bump me I don’t care
You can love me just about anywhere
It’s alright

Well you’re all I’ve got tonight
You’re all I’ve got tonight
You’re all I’ve got tonight
I need you tonight
I said, I need you tonight

‘Cause you’re all I’ve got tonight
You’re all I’ve got tonight
You’re all I’ve got tonight
I need you tonight
I need you tonight
I, I need you tonight
