Lea Salonga Anything For You

Anything for you

Though you’re not here

Since you said we’re through

It seems like years

Time keeps draggin’ on and on

And forever’s been and gone

Still I can’t figure what went wrong

I’d still do anything for you

I’ll play your game

You hurt me through and through

But you can have your way

I can’t pretend each time I see you

That I don’t care and I don’t need you

And though you’ll never see me cryin’

You know inside I feel like dyin’

And I’d do anything for you

In spite of it all

I’ve learned so much from you

You made me strong

Don’t you ever think I don’t love you

That for one minute I forgot you

But sometimes things don’t work out right

And you just have to say goodbye

I hope you find someone to please you

Someone who’ll care and never leave you

But if that someone ever hurts you

You just might need a friend to turn to

And I’d do anything for you

I’ll give you up

That’s what I should do

To make you happy

I can’t pretend each time I see you

That I don’t care and I don’t need you

And though inside I feel like dyin’

You know you’ll never see me cryin’

Don’t you ever think that I don’t love you

That for one minute I forgot you

But sometimes things don’t work out right

And you just have to say goodbye.

Don’t want to say goodbye

Lea Salonga A Little Fall Of Rain

Don’t you fret, Monsieur Marius,

I don’t feel any pain.

A little fall of rain

Can hardly hurt me now.

You’re here, that’s all I need to know.

And you will keep me safe,

And you will keep me close,

And rain will make the flowers grow.

But you will live, ‘Ponine,

Dear God above!

If I could heal your wounds with words of love!

Just hold me now, and let it be,

Shelter me,

Comfort me…

You would live a hundred years

If I could show you how.

I won’t desert you now.

The rain can’t hurt me now.

This rain will wash away what’s past!

And you will keep me safe,

And you will keep me close,

I’ll sleep in your embrace at last!

The rain that brings you here is heaven-blessed!

The skies begin to clear and I’m at rest.

A breath away from where you are,

I’ve come home from so far…

So don’t you fret, Monsieur Marius,

I don’t feel any pain.

A little fall of rain

Can hardly hurt me now.

Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine,

You won’t feel any pain.

A little fall of rain

Can hardly hurt you now.

I’m here,

That’s all I need to know.

And you will keep me safe,

And you will keep me close,

I will stay with you,

‘Til you are sleeping…

And rain,

And rain,

Will make the flowers…

Will make the flowers…grow.

Lea Salonga Can We Just Stop And Talk Awhile

Fancy meeting you alone in the crowd

Couldn’t help but notice your smile

While everybody else around us is going about

Can we just stop and talk awhile?

I’ve been often told our world’s growing old

And that friends are harder to find

Do tell me more about yourself

We could share a thought or two

Now who would mind?

Maybe then we could go for a ride

Drive down to the countryside

Get away from the gray

And frenzied hurly-burly of the city life

Early yet to say what lies ahead

It’s the first day of the rest of our lives

Can we just stop and talk awhile

Get to know each other

Who are we to know?

Love could be waiting at the end

‘Round that bend and so

Let’s stop and talk awhile

Maybe then we could go for a ride

Drive down to the countryside

Get away from the gray

And frenzied hurly-burly of the city life

Early yet to say what lies ahead

It’s the first day of the rest of our lives

Can we just stop and talk awhile

Get to know each other

Who are we to know?

Love could be waiting at the end

‘Round that bend and so

Let’s stop and talk awhile

Let’s stop and talk awhile

Let’s stop and talk awhile

Let’s stop and talk awhile

Lea Salonga Afraid For Love To Fade

My head’s in a jam

Can’t take you off my mind

From the time we met

I’ve been beset by thoughts of you

And the more that I ignore this feeling

The more I find myself believing

That I just have to see you again

[CHORUS:]

I can’t let you pass me by

I just can’t let you go

But I know that I am much too shy to let you know

Afraid that I might say the wrong words and displease you

Afraid for love to fade before it can come true

Like a child again

I’m at a loss for words

How does one define a crush combined with longing

Longing to possess you oh so dearly

I’m obsessed by you completely

I’ll go mad if I can’t have you

[CHORUS:]

I can’t let you pass me by

I just can’t let you go

But I know that I am much too shy to let you know

Afraid that I might say the wrong words and displease you

Afraid for love to fade before it can come true

I can’t let you pass me by

I just can’t let you go

Let me say the things and say the words to let you know

I would rather say the awkward words than lose you

Or for love to fade before it can come true

Afraid for love to fade before it can come true

My head’s in a jam

Can’t take you off my mind…

Lea Salonga A Flame For You

Think about you ev’ry minute

Dream about you ev’ry hour of the day

Close my eyes, and I think of your kiss

Well that’s all that I’ve got

When you’re so far away

It took some tears to let you

Thought that time would never heal me

You left my life, without a sound

After all we’ve been through

I still want you near me

[Refrain:]

A flame for you still burns

And so I’m savin’ my love for you

A flame for you still burns

And I’m holdin’ on

Yes. I’m holdin’ on

Still in love with you (hey)

Remember how you get to safe and walk (ohh)

We built our life for two, oh

Guess I didn’t recognize the signs

Coz I was lost in love

Lost in love with you

[repeat refrain]

Every once in a while

You find a love

That slips right through your hands

Gonna do my very best

To get you back again

A flame for you still burns

And so I’m savin’ my love for you

(savin’ all my love for you)

A flame for you still burns (hey)

And I’m holdin’ on

Yes, I’m holdin’ on

Still in love with you

A flame for you still burns (hey, baby)

And so I’m savin’ my love for you (savin’ all my love for you)

A falme for you still burn (still burn)

And I’m holdin’ on

Yes, I’m holdin’ on

Still in love with you

A flame for you still burns (hey)

And so I’m savin’ my love for you (savin’ all my love for you)

A flame for you still burns

And I’m holdin’ on

Yes, I’m holdin’ on

Still in love with you

A flame for you still burns

Is pinned by the stars

Pinned by the stars to the sky

Miracle of making music

When an idle poet

Puts words on a page

Writes on a page

With his brush

A musical friend

Writes the notes to blend

Suggested

By an idle thrush

Then a young soprano

Reads what they wrote

Learns every note

Every word

Puts all they wrote

In her lovely throat

And suddenly

A song is heard

Very pretty

A hundred million miracles

A hundred million miracles

A hundred million miracles

Are happ’ning ev’ry day

Lea Salonga A Long, Long Time Ago

We used to be one

I can remember when our hearts were very young

You said our love would be forever

But that was such a long, long time ago

A long, long time ago

Time and again

I still remember day after day

When you’d hold me close to you

But they are just a part of yesterday

Such a long, long time ago

Why did it ever have to be this way?

You promised me the moon, the sun, the stars above

How come you suddenly ceased to look my way?

Tell me the truth that you are certain of

Look at me now

The girl you once loved

Look at me now

Grown up but still in love with you

Although it’s such a long, long time ago

Such a long, long time ago

Why did it ever have to be this way?

You promised me the moon, the sun, the stars above

How come you suddenly ceased to look my way?

Tell me the truth that you are certain of

Look at me now

The girl you once loved

Look at me now

Grown up but still in love with you

Although it’s such a long, long time ago

Such a long, long time ago
