Lyrics

One Fine Day

Written By: Stephen Fenton

One Fine Day
When the world has stopped has revolving
I’ll be there, still loving you
I will reach across the sky
Don’t ask me why, I just know
I’ll be loving you again
One Fine Day

One Fine Day
When out problems no longer need solving
I’ll be there, still loving you
I will reach across the sky
Don’t ask me why I just know
I’ll be loving you again
One Fine Day

What is it about time that would make the passion disappear
When your soul first touched mine
I knew I’d always, always remember

One Fine Day
When a new world starts evolving
I’ll be there, still loving you
I will reach across the sky
Don’t ask me why I just know
I’ll be loving you again
One Fine Day

I’ll be loving you again
One Fine Day

Latin Passion

Written By: Stephen Fenton

Do you want me?
Oh baby do you want me?
Cause baby if you wanted me, you’d get down on your knees and ask to do the Cha-Cha-Cha

Do you need me?
Oh honey do you need me?
Cause baby if you needed me it should be plain to see I’d like to do the Cha-Cha-Cha

So before the band go
We’ll do the Tango
And when it’s over, we’ll Bossa Nova till the morning comes

Before the band go
We’ll do the Tango
And when it’s over, we’ll Bossa Nova till morning comes

For something grander, oh we could do the Samba
Cause when I hear the Samba start it moves my heart
Just like I know it does the Cha-Cha-Cha

Is it yes or no babe,
To a little Pasodoble?
There’s no need to ration your passion for this Latin cause the pattern is there’ll be another Cha-Cha-Cha

So before the band go
We’ll do the Tango
And when it’s over, we’ll Bossa Nova till morning comes

Before the band go
We’ll do the Tango
And when it’s over, we’ll Bossa Nova till morning comes

Is it yes or no babe?
To a little Pasodoble
There’s no need to ration your passion for this Latin cause the pattern is there’ll be another Cha-Cha-Cha

For something grander, oh we could do the Samba
Cause when I hear the Samba start it moves my heart
Just like I know it does the Cha-Cha-Cha
Is it yes or no babe?
To a little Pasodoble
Don’t ration your passion - the pattern is there’ll be another Cha-Cha-Cha

Is it yes or no babe,
To a little Pasodoble?
There’s no need to ration your passion for this Latin cause the pattern is there’ll be another Cha-Cha-Cha

Latin Passion

Standing In The Light

Written By: Stephen Fenton

Standing in the light
When I saw you, you were standing in the light
& The shadows seemed to dance across your face
And our eyes locked together

Standing in the light
When you touched me, I was standing in the light
& The music seemed to play the whole night long
And we danced together

You the moment I saw you I knew
That no other person would do
The rest of my life was with you

& So it became that you
The best friend that I ever knew
A love and a life that ruled
Standing In The Light

INST

You the moment I saw you I knew
That no other person would do
The rest of my life was with you

& So it became that you
The best friend that I ever knew
A love and a life that ruled
Standing In The Light

Listen To Your Heart

Written By: Stephen Fenton

V1
Sometimes when you’re strong
You know when you’ve been wrong
All you need to live
Is for that someone you love - just to forgive

Reach out and touch me
Just call my name

CH
Listen to your heart when it’s lonely
Listen to your heart and come home to me
Listen to your heart when it’s lonely
Listen to your heart and come home to me

V3
Let the light shine through
Let it shine on me, and you
All we need to be
Is certain to our love and that will set us free

CH
Listen to your heart when it’s lonely
Listen to your heart and come home to me
Listen to your heart when it’s lonely
Listen to your heart and come home to me

BRIDGE
Reach out
Touch me
Just call my name

Reach out
Touch me
Just call my name
Baby you gotta listen…

CH - Repeat
Listen to your heart when it’s lonely
Listen to your heart and come home to me
Listen to your heart when it’s lonely
Listen to your heart and come home to me
