Lyrics

Feelin' Good

Written By: Anthony Newley/Leslie Bricusse

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Reeds drifting on by you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me yeah
It a new dawn, it a new day, it’s a new life for me, yeah, yeah
Can you feel – that I’m feeling good

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Reeds drifting on by you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean – don’t you know
Butterflies all having fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace till day is done, that’s what I mean
And this old world
Is a new world
And a bold world for me – hey, hey, hey, hey!

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine – that’s how I feel

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day
It’s a new life for me – hey! – I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good now
Let’s talk about how I feel now

You know how I feel you know how I feel – I’m feeling
You know how I feel you know how I feel – OH!

You know how I feel you know how I feel – I’m feeling
You know how I feel – you know you know –OH!

it Looks Like Rain

Written By: Jann Arden Richards/Robert Foster

I flagged a taxi long before you woke
The sun had not yet risen, morning not yet broke
It looks like rain, it looks like rain

A little starling swept above my sleepy head
He plucked a single hair and took off laughing, madly as he fled
The driver drinking brandy said “Here is to the day”
It looks like rain, it looks like rain

And every breath I ever took
Every tear I ever wept
Every star I wished upon seemed nothing until now
Every prayer I ever said seemed strangely answered now
Could it be I’m in love? Could it be I’m in love?

I made the driver park the car beside the sea
I gazed into the fading dark and slowly, buckled at the knees
The driver drinking gladly said “Here is to the day”
It looks like rain, it looks like rain

And every breath I ever took
Every tear I ever wept
Every star I wished upon seemed nothing until now
Every prayer I ever said seemed strangely answered now
Could it be I’m in love? Could it be I’m in love?
Could it be I’m in love? Could it be that I’m in love?

Only You

Written By: Vincent Clarke

Looking from a window above
It’s like a story of love, can you hear me
Came back only yesterday
I’m moving farther away
Want you near me

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew – only you

Sometimes when I think of her name
When it’s only a game, and I need you
Listen to the words that you say
It’s getting harder to stay, when I see you

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew – only you

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew – only you

This is gonna take a long time
And I wonder what’s mine
Can’t take it no more
Wonder if you’ll understand
It’s just the touch of your hand, behind a closed door

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew – only you
