Helen Reddy Here In My Arms

Here in my arms it’s adorable,

It’s deplorable

That you were never there.

When your two lips are so kissable,

It’s permissible

For you to ask your share.

Next to my heart it is ever so lonely,

I’m holding only air! Why?

Here in my arms it’s adorable,

It’s deplorable

That you were never there.

Here in my arms you’re adorable

And you’re kissable,

It’s permissible

For you to ask your share.

Next to my heart it is ever so lonely,

I’m holding only air! Why?

Here in my arms it’s adorable,

It’s deplorable

That you were never there.

Helen Reddy Somewhere In The Night

Time, you found time enough to love

I found love enough to hold you

Tonight I’ll stir the fire you feel inside

Until the flames of love enfold you

Laying beside you, lost in the feeling

So glad you opened my door

Come with me

Somewhere in the night we will know

Everything lovers shall know

You’re my song

Music too magic to end

I’ll play you over and over again

Loving so warm, moving so right

Closing our eyes and feeling the light

We’ll just go on burning bright

Somewhere in the night

You’ll sleep when the morning comes

And I’ll lie and watch you sleeping

And you’ll smile when you dream about the night

Like it’s a secret you’ve been keeping

Laying beside you, lost in the feeling

So glad you opened my door

Come with me

Somewhere in the night we will know

Everything lovers can know

You’re my song

Music too magic to end

I’ll play you over and over again

Loving so warm, moving so right

Closing our eyes and feeling the light

We’ll just go on burning bright

Somewhere in the night

Loving so warm, moving so right

Closing our eyes and feeling the light

We’ll just go on burning bright

Somewhere in the night

We’ll just go on burning bright

Somewhere in the night

We’ll just go on burning bright

Somewhere in the night

We’ll just go on burning bright

Somewhere in the night

Helen Reddy Candle On The Water

I’ll be your candle on the water,

My love for you will always burn.

I know you’re lost and drifting

But the clouds are lifting.

Don’t give up, you have somewhere to turn.

I’ll be your candle on the water,

‘Till every wave is warm and bright.

My soul is there beside you,

Let this candle guide you.

Soon you’ll see a golden stream of light.

A cold and friendless tide has found you,

Don’t let the stormy darkness pull you down.

I’ll paint a ray of hope around you,

Circling in the air,

Lighted by a prayer.

I’ll be your candle on the water,

This flame inside of me will grow.

Keep holding on, you’ll make it,

Here’s my hand so take it.

Look for me, reaching out to show,

As sure as rivers flow,

I’ll be your candle on the water,

This flame inside of me will grow.

Keep holding on you’ll make it,

Here’s my hand so take it.

Look for me, reaching out to show, as sure as rivers flow,

I’ll never let you go.

I’ll never let you go.

I’ll never let you go…

Helen Reddy Midnight Skies

Lemonade in the shade

Of the Western trees

We got it made in the shade

Of an Easter breeze

The midnight sun

Has just begun

Midnight skies

In your eyes in the summertime

Serenade as we wade

Into Tropic seas

We’ll let it play

Holiday kinda melodies

The midnight sun

Has just begun

Midnight skies

In your eyes in the summertime

Picnic baskets, no umbrellas

Let me tell ya, I love the motion

On an endless screen of deep emotion

Promenade, a parade

In the summer breeze

We’ll masquerade, a charade

Of our fantasies

The midnight sun

Has just begun

Midnight skies

In your eyes in the summertime

Helen Reddy Best Friend

Would you take better care of yourself

Would you be kinder to yourself

Would you be more forgiving of your human imperfections

If you realized your best friend was yourself

Who is always with you everywhere

Who is on your side when others are unfair

And tell me, who will never let you down in any situation

Who will always see you get your share

And that’s why I am a best friend to myself

And I take me out whenever I feel low

And I make my life as happy as a best friend would

I’m as nice to me as anyone I know

And that’s why I am a best friend to myself

And I take me out whenever I feel low

And I make my life as happy as a best friend would

I’m as nice to me as anyone I know

Helen Reddy The Last Blues Song

I’ve been cryin’ and my-oh-my-in’

Since he’s been gone.

But I’ve done some thinkin’

And it’s starting to sink in

That life goes on.

So if you’re somebody

Who’s feeling sorry for yourself

Better sing along

Cause this is gonna be

The last blues song.

Now a little bitty fit

Of self pity

Can really sing.

But it keeps on growin’

And you know woe-woe-in’

Don’t change a thing.

So if you’re a person

Who’s hooked on hurtin’ on yourself

Better sing along

Cause this is gonna be

The last blues song.

Woe, woe, woe, woe,

Woe, woe, woe, woe

My oh my

Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea

I’m fit to die.

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby

Please don’t go’..

Papa I think I’m getting’ high

On feeling, low woe woe woe woe woe woe

So all you losers, you full time blues-ers

Get out of bed

Don’t you go and give in

Don’t you give up on livin’

Before you’re dead.

Come on now brother,

If you’ve been motherin’ yourself

Better sing along

Cause this is gonna be

This is gonna be

The last blues song.

Helen Reddy Baby, I’m A Star

If you wonder where I’m at

Got the big bucks, the bank roll’s fat

Hey people, I’m not hurting

Give me a stage an’ a big red curtain

I’m a star, hey baby, I’m a star

I dreamed real big

An’ I took it far

I was born in Melbourne, Vic

Didn’t fit in, I had to get out quick

Did not want rubies or diamond rings

Just had some songs that I had to sing

I’m a star, hey baby, I’m a star

I dreamed real big

An’ I took it far

I don’t care, I’ve got my mystique

I might be an angel, I might be a

From Vegas to Malibu

You all wonder what I do

Got two kids an’ a man I love

An’ a clenched fist in a velvet glove

I’m a star, hey baby, I’m a star

I dreamed real big

An’ I took it far

Helen Reddy You And Me Against The World

Tell me again, mommy

You and me against the world

Sometimes it feels like you and me against the world

When all the others turn their backs and walk away

You can count on me to stay

Remember when the circus came to town

And you were frightened by the clown

Wasn’t it nice to be around someone that you knew

Someone who was big and strong and looking out for you

And me against the world

Sometimes it feels like you and me against the world

And for all the times we’ve cried

I always felt that God was on our side

And when one of us is gone

And one of us is left to carry on

Then remembering will have to do

Our memories alone will get us through

Think about the days of me and you

You and me against the world

And when one of us is gone

And one of us is left to carry on

Then remembering will have to do

Our memories alone will get us through

Think about the days of me and you

You and me against the world

I love you, mommy

I love you too, baby

Helen Reddy That’s What Friends Are For

And I never thought I’d feel this way,

And as far as I’m concerned,

I’m glad I got a chance to say,

That I do believe I love you!

And if I should ever go away,

Well then close your eyes and try,

To feel the way we do today!

And then if you can remember

Keep smiling!

Keep shining!

Knowing you can always count on me,

For sure!

And that’s what friends are for!

For good times!

And bad times!

I’ll be on your side forever more!

That’s what friends are for!

Oh and then for the times when we’re apart,

Well then close your eyes and know,

These words are comin’ from my heart!

And then if you can remember

Keep smiling!

Keep shining!

Knowing you can always count on me,

For sure!

And that’s what friends are for!

In good times!

And bad times!

I’ll be on your side forever more!

That’s what friends are for!

Helen Reddy Leave Me Alone

Big old Ruby Red Dress

Wanders ’round the town

Talking to herself now

Sometimes sitting down

Don’t you get too close now

Ruby runs away

Poor old Ruby Red Dress

Born on a sorry day

I can hear her say

Leave me alone

Won’t you leave me alone

Please leave me alone

Now leave me alone

Oh, leave me alone

Please leave me alone

Yes, leave me

Leave me

Leave me alone

Won’t you leave me alone

Please leave me alone

Now leave me alone

God, leave me alone

Just leave me alone

Oh, leave me

Leave me

Big old Ruby Red Dress

Everybody laughs

Say she’s got no future

And never made no past

Something hurt that Ruby

Something she can’t bare

You look at her real close now

You see a little tear

When she says now

Leave me alone

Won’t you leave me alone

Please leave me alone

God, leave me alone

Oh, leave me alone

Just leave me alone

Please leave me

Leave me

Leave me alone

Won’t you leave me alone

Please leave me alone

Now leave me alone

Oh, leave me alone

Just leave me alone

Oh leave me

Leave me

Some folks say some farm boy

Oh, from Tennessee

Taught it all to Ruby

Then just let her be

Her daddy tried to hide it

Tried to keep things cool

But something happened to Ruby

She broke down to a fool

Who just said now

Leave me alone

Won’t you leave me alone

Please leave me alone

Now leave me alone

Oh, leave me alone

Please leave me alone

Yes leave me

Leave me

Leave me alone

Won’t you leave me alone

Please leave me alone

Now leave me alone

God, leave me alone

Just leave me alone

Please leave me

Leave me

Leave me alone

Won’t you leave me alone

Please leave me alone
