Once In A Lifetime


STAY THE NIGHT

(P. Cetera/D. Foster)

Arranged by Peter Cetera and David Foster


I don't want you to misunderstand me

I just wanna say what's on my mind

No need to hit me with an attitude

Because I haven't got the time


I want you to know one thing's for certain

I surely love your company

And I won't take no if that's your answer

At least that's my philosophy


Chorus:

Stay the night

There's room enough here for two

Stay the night

I'd like to spend it with you

Stay the night

Why don't we call it a day

No one can stop us, nothing is in the way


Have some friendly conversation

And if you still don't have a clue

Unless there's something else you've got in mind

We've got better things to do


Chorus


Just to have you near me

Here by my side

Just to have you near me

And when I get next to your body

Just to have you near me

I wanna tell you something, make it perfectly clear

We're gonna have a very good time


Chorus

WE CAN STOP THE HURTIN'

(R. Lamm/B. Champlin/D. Neal)

Arranged by David Foster and Bobby Lamm

Horns arranged by Jimmy Pankow


What has happened to our town

There's people sleeping on the ground

Cold and lost, they fear the night

Left alone, they'll lose the fight


Hadn't we better reach for more than just a dime

Shouldn't we try to talk that boy out of his crime

Haven't you had it knowing nothing's getting solved

Maybe we'd better, better get involved


Chorus:

We could stop the hurtin' for awhile

We could stop the hurtin' for awhile

If we found a way to reconcile

We could stop the hurtin'


Families livin' in their cars and kids run numbers out of bars

Knowing pride won't pay the bills, men work jobs beneath their skills

Hadn't we better hand out more than just a line

Shouldn't we try to find solutions with our minds

Haven't you had it knowing nothing's getting solved

Maybe we'd better, better get involved


Chorus


(C) 1984 Fin de Siecle Musique/JSH Music ASCAP/Cheeky Kid Music BMI


HARD HABIT TO BREAK

(S. Kipner/J. Parker)

Arranged by David Foster

Strings Arranged by Jeremy Lubbock


I guess I thought you'd be here forever

Another illusion I chose to create

You don't know what ya got until it's gone

And I found out just a little too late


I was acting as if you were lucky to have me

Doin' you a favor I hardly knew you were there

But then you were gone and it was all wrong

Had no idea how much I cared


Chorus:

Now being without you

Takes a lot of getting used to

Should learn to live with it

But I don't want to

Living without you

Is all a big mistake

Instead of getting easier

It's the hardest thing to take

I'm addicted to ya babe

You're a hard habit to break


You found someone else you had every reason

You know I can't blame you for runnin' to him

Two people together but living alone

I was spreading my love too thin


After all of these years

I'm still tryin' to shake it

Doin' much better they say that it just takes time

But deep in the night it's an endless flight

I can't get ya out of my mind


Chorus


2nd Chorus:

Being without you

Takes a lot of getting used to

Should learn to live with it

I don't want to

Being without you

Is all a big mistake

Instead of getting any easier

It's the hardest thing to take

I'm addicted to you

You're a hard habit to break

ONLY YOU

(J. Pankow/D. Foster)

Arranged by David Foster

Vocal Arrangements by Bill Champlin and Bobby Lamm

Horns Arranged by Jimmy Pankow and David Foster


Hold me forever

Whisper the words I've waited so long to hear

Love's sweet surrender

Steals an embrace and kisses away the tears


Lookin' back down the road of love

We can still feel the heartache

Pain and joy of an unrelenting love

Hold us together


Chorus:

Only you

You've got control

Only you

You've got the key to my heart

Only you

You've got control

Need your love, take me forever


Sad empty faces

Faded away when I fell in love with you

True love erases

Fear and the doubt not knowing we'd see things through


So in love, unaware of time

In a world of illusion

We fell in love until the end of time

True love, forever


Chorus


Lookin' back down the road of love

We can still feel the heartache

Pain and joy of an unrelenting love

Hold us together


Chorus

REMEMBER THE FEELING

(P. Cetera/B. Champlin)

Arranged by David Foster

Vocal Arrangements by Peter Cetera

Strings Arranged by Jeremy Lubbock


Shadows were hiding what I couldn't see

Out in the dark - she was calling to me

Calling to me with a voice I'd never forget


She was a vision I couldn't believe

I held her close wo that she wouldn't leave

Suddenly hopeless - hopelessly falling in love


Chorus:

I remember the feeling

I remember the way

She came and wrapped her arms around me

Told me that she cared

Said she'd always be there


Taking me places that I've never been

She had the beauty that comes from within

Was I just dreaming was it too good to be true


I was a man all alone in the night

She came along and she showed me the light

I was confused then she told me the way

I was alone and I begged her to stay


She was alive I was caught by the fire

She brought emotions that filled my desire

I should have noticed that something was wrong

When I awoke she was gone


Chorus


She was alive I was caught by the fire

She brought emotions that filled my desire

I should have noticed that something was wrong

When I awoke, I could see that she was gone

ALONG COMES A WOMAN

(P. Cetera/M.Goldenberg)

Arranged by Peter Cetera and Mark Goldenberg

Horns Arranged by Jimmy Pankow


There is a time when a man needs somebody to talk to

Someone to talk to, somebody who'll always be there


All alone, nothin' seemed to matter

So alone, doesn't get much better

Can't explain somethin' that you're feelin'

For the very first time


There was a time when you needed someone to hold onto

Someone to hold you, somebody who's always sincere


All alone, suddenly you see her

So alone, you know you're gonna need her

Can't explain, somethin' that you're feelin'

For the very first time


Chorus:

Then along comes a woman

There's a change in the way that you're feeling tonight

Then along comes a woman

And you know that it's right


There was a time when you needed someone to count on

You needed someone to count on, somebody to care


Now she's here, nothin' seems to matter

She's so near, everything is better

Can't explain, somethin' that you're feelin'

For the very first time


Chorus

YOU'RE THE INSPIRATION

(P. Cetera/D. Foster)

Arranged by Peter Cetera and David Foster

Strings Arranged by Jeremy Lubbock


You know our love was meant to be

The kind of love that lasts forever

And I need you here with me

From tonight until the end of time


You should know, everywhere I go

You're always on my mind, in my heart

In my soul


Chorus:

You're the meaning in my life

You're the inspiration

You bring feeling to my life

You're the inspiration

Wanna have you near me

I wanna have you hear me sayin'

No one needs you more than I need you


And I know, yes I know that it's plain to see

We're so in love when we're together

And I know that I need you here with me

From tonight until the end of time


You should know, everywhere I go

Always on my mind, in my heart

In my soul


Chorus

PLEASE HOLD ON

(D. Foster/B. Champlin/L. Richie)

Arranged by David Foster

Horns Arranged by Jimmy Pankow and David Foster


Do you love me

Do you need me

Tell me the truth tonight

Do you love me

Do you need me

Can I still call you mine


I've heard the same old story

So many times

For every lie you've told me

I'd be a righ man if I had a dime


Why do you take me

Why do you rake me

Over your red hot coals

Why do you scold me

After you hold me

Why do you turn so cold


The lad's constant cruisin'

Expains the tears

The lonely path she's choosin'

If I didn't love her would I still be here


Please hold on, stay with me

Tell me what you have in mind

Please hold on, stay with me

Baby, don't you leave me behind


Do you love me

Do you need me

Tell me the truth this time

Do you love me

Do you need me

Can I still call you mine


Soft lights and quiet music

Forgets your name

Some people try to use it

But loneliness chooses the rules to the game


Please hold on, stay with me

Tell me what you have in mind

Please hold on, stay with me

Baby, don't you leave me behind

Please hold on, stay with me

Loneliness will leave you blind

Please hold on, stay with me

Fall in love with me this time

PRIMA DONNA

(From the Sound Track of the Motion Picture TWO OF A KIND)

(P. Cetera/M. Goldenberg)

Arranged by Peter Cetera and Mark Goldenberg


You've got the look - they'll never forget

You wanna be noticed - but they haven't noticed yet


When the time is right - a star on your door

Taking you places that you've never been before

Where did you go?


Go to sleep tonight and dream about it till the morning

Make a scene tonight - read about it in the morning

Appearing for the very first time - on the screen tonight

And when you wanna - they treat you like a Primma Donna


You're a movie queen - familiar face

Prettiest woman in the whole of the human race


You're gonna be famous - you wanna go far

(Your) name up in lights - everybody knows who you are

On with the show


(How) will it feel being number one

Hard to imagine but I can't blame you for tryin'

How will it feel havin' so much fun

Hard to imagine but it's so electrifying

ONCE IN A LIFETIME

(J. Pankow)

Arranged by Jimmy Pankow and David Foster

Horns arranged by Jimmy Pankow


When I saw your face

I could feel my heartbeat begin to race

In the still of the night

It was love at first sight


Not too long ago

I was on my own

Never would have known

You'd come into my life

Now, you're the love of my life


Chorus:

Once in a lifetime

Maybe the last time

Just the right time to fall in love

Once in a lifetime

For such a long time

I've been waiting for you


You were there for me

It was there for you

We were meant to be

Now we're fallin' in love

Finally fallin' in love


Chorus
