Lyrics

Bella Opera

Written By: Gary Shaw

Bella

Music: Gary Shaw
Words: Lawrence Della Pozza

Forgive me
I was away too long
I didn’t want to hurt you
I know I did wrong

You started
My heart again inside
Something precious
Washed up by the tide

Oh Bella
Don’t you ever be afraid
Because you opened my heart

Oh Bella
Through you I feel stronger
And won’t be torn apart

I will
Think of you always
You’re my one desire
My one desire

And nothing
That I promise
Will extinguish
That fire

When I leave my love
My heart by her side will stay
Memories of our love
I will recall each day

I hope you never cry
I hope you’re never in pain
Because to me
You’re like a rainbow in the rain

Oh Bella
If a wish were real
And could come true

Oh Bella
One thing would I ask
And that would be
For you

I Dont Believe in Love Anymore

Written By: Gary Shaw


I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore

(Words/Music: Gary Shaw)

I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore
I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore
I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore
I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore

I used to believe in heaven’s debate
That a boy and girl should always wait
I used to believe in one person fate
Now I believe don’t hesitate

I used to love the brand new day
And the magic of the morning’s rays
Now I don’t care if it rains
All the days are just the same

I’ve seen it with myself and with others
The days are numbered for all we lovers
We all want a love to last forever
But dreams come true but never

The best we can have is a flash-in-the-pan
Or a “kiss n tell” one night stand
I’m just a lost in love ham
Whose love has hit the fan

I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore
I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore
I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore
I Don’t Believe in Love Anymore

Bella Where Have You Gone?

Written By: Gary Shaw

Bella
Where Have You Gone?

(Words/Music: Gary Shaw)

Bella
Where have you gone?
We made those vows
What did they mean?

Bella
I thought you knew
How much I cared
For you
For you

You were like the rainbow in the rain
You came along and eased my pain

Bella
Where have you gone?
Those were the days
When we did love

Bella
I thought we’d stay
Forever in love
Until the end
Until the end

You were like the rainbow in the rain
You came along and eased my pain

You were like the rainbow in the rain
You came along and eased my pain

Oh Bella
Where have you gone?
Oh Bella
You’re beautiful
Oh Bella
Where have you gone?

The Spirit of Space Columbia

(Words/Music: Gary Shaw)

This is Space Columbia calling
From high above you
You told us to correlate our data
And we have reached a conclusion
It might not be the answer you expected
But this is what we found

There’s nothing like a green field
There’s nothing like a sunlit beach
There’s nothing like a starry night

Because planet earth we miss you
We really miss you
Because planet earth we miss you
We really miss you

This is Space Columbia calling
From Alpha Omega
There’s a good reason why
We won’t survive much longer

We’ve got to learn to appreciate
What we already have
There’s just too much for us to lose

Because planet earth we love you
We really love you
Because planet earth we love you
We really love you

Because
There’s nothing like a green field
There’s nothing like a sunlit beach
There’s nothing like a starry night

Because
We’ve got to learn to appreciate
What we already have
There’s just too much for us to lose

Because planet earth we love you
Because planet earth we miss you
Because planet earth we love you
we really love you

Strawberry Wine

Strawberry Wine

(Words/Music: Gary Shaw)

You make me feel like strawberry wine
And your smile is like the sunshine
And your love is so kind
You make me feel like strawberry wine

Well you came into to my life
You stole my heart and my mind
You spin me like a dice
You remain my mystery of life

Well your eyes can make me happy
Your eyes can make me sad
And when I look into your eyes
Your eyes can make me glad
You make me feel like strawberry wine
You make me feel like strawberry wine

LEAD BREAK

Well your eyes can make me happy
Your eyes can make me sad
And when I look into your eyes
Your eyes can make me glad

Well your eyes can make me happy
Your eyes can make me sad
And when I look into your eyes
Your eyes can make me glad

You make me feel like strawberry wine
You make me feel like strawberry wine
You make me feel like strawberry wine!

I'm Left to Wonder When

Written By: Gary Shaw/ Darren Burton

I’m Left to Wonder When

(Music: Gary Shaw
Words: Darren Burton)

Ooooh Ooooh
Ooooh Ooooh
This world is so unfair
What am I supposed to do?
What does the future hold?
Will I never see you again?
I want to wake up beside you
And see you every day
Experiencing tender moments
Showing love our special way

But it seems that day will never come
When I hold you in my arms again
Will you come back again one day?
I’m left to wonder when
Wonder when
Ooooh Ooooh
Ooooh Ooooh

What’s the point of love?
When two hearts are so far apart
Lovers should be together
Not dwelling on days gone past

But it seems that day will never come
When I hold you in my arms again
Will you come back again one day?
I’m left to wonder when
Wonder when
LEAD
The world is so unfair (spoken)
LEAD
What am I to do (sung)
LEAD
What does the future hold (spoken)
LEAD
Will I never see you again (sung)

(CHORUS)
Ooooh Ooooh
I miss you so
Ooooh Ooooh
I miss you so
Ooooh Ooooh
Don’t you know I miss you so?
Ooooh Ooooh
I miss you so
Ooooh
I miss you so

Aussie Girls

(Words/Music: Gary Shaw)

I’m going overseas
I’m going to the South of France
I’m going where they drink the wine
And to have a really good time

But I’ve got this feelin in my heart
That I’m gonna miss those Aussie Girls
Yeh I’m gonna miss those Aussie Girls

Feelin in my heart
Feelin in my heart
And I think they call it love
& I think they call it love

Oooh they’ve got skin so brown
Oooh and such a friendly frown
They might not live in a penthouse
But that’s not what life’s about

But I’ve got this feelin in my heart
That I’m gonna miss those Aussie Girls
Yeh I’m gonna miss those Aussie Girls

Feelin in my heart
Feelin in my heart
And I think they call it love
& I think they call it love

The Uniting Sea of Love

Music: Gary Shaw
Words: Gary Shaw/ Michelle Box

Welcome Brothers and Sisters
Welcome to the uniting sea of love
We are gathered here today
To bring the world a little bit closer
We can all make a difference
We can all change the world
And it all starts with you
Brothers and sisters
It all starts with you

Our hearts are all waterfalls
At different levels of willingness to flow
Whether trickling quietly
Or gushing loudly to the world
We’re all headed
In the same direction
To the uniting sea of love
L-L-L-L-Love. The uniting sea of love

We need to think about making a better world
A better world for our children
And our children’s children
A more peaceful world

The uniting sea, the uniting sea
The uniting sea of L-L-L-L-Love

I can feel you, I can feel you, all around me
You’re in the air, You’re in the sky, You’re in the sea

We can change the world, We can change the world
Just you and me

Don’t kill the whales
Don’t pollute the land
Don’t destroy the trees
Don’t forget the children

The uniting sea, The uniting sea, The uniting sea of love
We can change the world, We can change the world
Change the world

Web of Deception

Written By: Gary Shaw/ Darren Burton

Web of Deception

Music: Gary Shaw/ Darren Burton
Words: Darren Burton

(EVIL)
You spin a web of lies and deception
Snaring unsuspecting lovers at will
Well I’m gonna break out of that web
I won’t swallow your bitter pill

You spin a web of lies and deception
Snaring unsuspecting lovers at will
Well I’m gonna break out of that web
I won’t swallow your bitter pill

Take a good look in the mirror
And tell me what you see
You’ll see an image of shame and confusion
Don’t spin your web around me

Don’t come crying to me at night
Because someone’s done you wrong by day
My bed is no longer open to you
I will never let you stay

Take a good look in the mirror
And tell me what you see
You’ll see an image of shame and confusion
Don’t spin your web around me

Your games are not worth playing
I don’t enjoy them anymore
It’s time to put an end to your game
And send you out that door

Take a good look in the mirror
And tell me what you see
You’ll see an image of shame and confusion
Don’t spin your web around me

You spin a web of lies and deception
Snaring unsuspecting lovers at will
Well I’m gonna break out of that web
I won’t swallow your bitter pill
