Leo Sayer I Will Not Stop Fighting

Oh and I can see the sadness in your eyes

Well you shouldn’t ever have to cry

Oh I will put you back on your feet again

If you you’ll let me try

Oh I will not stop fighting for you

Until the day I day

Oh they know how to shatter your dreams

But this time they’ve really gone to extremes

They just don’t give a damn

About you and me baby

But we will not stop dreaming

Until they set us free

Oh well a change of heart

Leads to a change of time

We shouldn’t be here wishing

For a change of mind

I remember when we were just starting out

Your world was lonely, needed mine

So I will not stop fighting for you

Until I run out of time

[Solo]

Oh and I want to stay this close to you

And I don’t want it to stop, no

Until you feel happy too

No one else will understand

What we’re going through

But I will not stop fighting

Until you stop fighting too

Oh well a change of heart

Leads to a change of mind

Shouldn’t be here wishing

For a change of time

Oh I remember when we were just starting out

Your world was lonely, needed mine

So, I will not stop fighting for you

Until I run out of time

Leo Sayer Rumours

I heard some things about you

I can’t believe it’s true

I heard the flame don’t burn bright as it used to

I heard some things about you

I know they must be lies

Don’t turn your face away, baby

When I need to see your eyes

‘Cos I keep hearing rumours

People telling me rumours

I keep hearing those rumours

Seems like everybody’s my best friend

Rumours, don’t go believing rumours

I swear it’s only rumours

Listen babe, I don’t want our love to end

(It’s a shame – they talk, they talk, they talk)

I heard some things about you

Suspicion coming on

I need some answers woman

Don’t tell me nothing’s wrong, nothing’s wrong

I heard some things about you

The way you’re treating me

You give your love to someone else

When it used to come to me

Oh I’ve been hearing rumours

Everybody’s saying rumours

I don’t wanna hear no rumours

How come everybody wants to be my best friend

I don’t believe it no, oh

(It’s a shame – they talk

They talk, they talk

They talk, they talk

They talk, they talk:)

Now I’ve got so many friends

I’ve never had before

And you’re the only friend I want

I don’t want no more

All these rumours I hear

I can’t believe they’re true

And they’re trying to tear me

Oh no, they’re trying to tear me away from you

Rumours, I don’t believe it babe

Rumours

They’re just whispers in the wind

They’ve got it all wrong

Everybody’s wants our love to end

Rumours, I don’t believe in those

Rumours, lots of big rumours

Rumours, it’s only vicious rumours

I don’t want our love to end

I don’t want our love to end

I don’t want our love to end

Leo Sayer We Can Start It All Over Again

Ooh babe, what can I say to you

To change what you’re feelin’ inside

Ooh babe, I’ve got to get close to you

Please don’t cast me aside

You know I hate to see you lookin’ so sad

I can’t stand to watch this good love go bad

Let’s stop and think about the good times that we had

We can start it all, start it all, over again

And we can have it all, have it all, just one more time

We can start it all start it all, all over again

Ooh, babe, don’t look that way at me

You know you’re breaking’ my heart

Ooh, babe, I am as sorry as I can be

Don’t let this tear us apart

Now let’s forget about the tears that we cried

What’s gone is gone and there ‘ain’t nothin’ to hide

Come on baby, why can’t we give it one more try

We can start it all, start it all, all over again

And we can have it all, have it all, just a one more time

If we can start it all, start it all, all over again

[Solo]

Just think about

Just think about it babe

Just think about it babe

Oh baby, I acted like a fool

You just trust me baby and I’ll make it up to you

I see your smile’s returnin’

I know you understand

Come on baby

All you got to do is take my hand

I love you baby, we’re gonna start it all again

We’ll have it down like nothin’ before

We can have it all, have it all, yeah everything

We can start it all, start it all, all over again

We can have it all, have it all, yeah everything

I wanna love you babe, all over again

Leo Sayer Running To My Freedom

You should have been there when I gave out the news

I know you would have been surprised to see

The smoke and the fire that was comin’ out of me

Now that I’ve finally shaken you loose

And I’ve cut the chains that held me back

Feelin’ more and more like a train rolling down the track

Running to my freedom

I ain’t never gonna give it back

Me and my freedom, from now on

One of these days it’s gonna happen to you

You’re gonna find yourself in love so deep

That you would give up anything for that love to keep

Then sooner or later it will break down on you

And when you finally feel all the hurt inside

You will understand the reason why I cried

Why I took my freedom

I ain’t never gonna give it back

Me and my freedom, from now on

Running to my freedom

I ain’t never gonna give it back

Me and my freedom, from now on

[Solo]

And now that I’ve finally shaken you loose

And I have cut the chains that held me back

Feelin’ more and more like a train rolling down the track

Running to my freedom

I ain’t never gonna give it back

Me and my freedom, from now on

Running to my freedom

I ain’t never gonna give it back

Me and my freedom, from now on

[Solo]

Leo Sayer Dancing The Night Away

Standing beside of the ocean

Looking out across the water

Everything is beautiful

But I still don’t feel like I oughta

Things we wanted, not so long ago

I got ’em all now, babe

But I ain’t got you no more

Still I remember

The way you held me

And all the sweet things you used to say

When we were two young lovers

Dancing the night away

I remember everything

Dresses you used to wear

You were so light and graceful

You seem to float right through the air

And me I looked so funny dancing

But you loved me anyhow

Now I wish I could find somebody

To love me like that now

But I remember

The way you held me

And all the sweet things you used to say

When we were two young lovers

Dancing the night away

[Solo]

Standing beside of the ocean

Looking out across the bay

I should look for companionship

But it just gets in my way

Yeah, all the lights are flickering

Out along the shore

Well, I see people dancing there

But I just don’t dance no more

Still I remember

They way you held me

And all the sweet things you used to say

When were two young lovers

Dancing the night away

Let me see you dance

Let me see you dance

Oh, baby, let me see you dance

I can still see you dance

I remember you dancing

Oh, baby, let me see you dance

C’mon, let me see you dance

Leo Sayer The Kids Grown Up

Southdown Motor Co, 2A bus

You can see right inside my parent’s house

Sitting at the table and my dinners up

It’s gonna be different when the kid’s grown up

Gonna save some money and quit this job

Light the way

Clear the stage

The kid’s grown up

Used to play in the underground, Hyde Park

Now I’m riding in a limousine through the underpass

I’m sitting in an aeroplane it’s all such a rush

People all around me making so much fuss

And I’ve gotta little money

‘Ain’t gonna burn me up

If I’m in your town

Tonight I am, watch out

The kid’s grown up

[Solo]

I gotta little money, ain’t going to burn me up

If I’m in your town

Tonight I am, watch out

The kid’s grown up

Watch out

The kid’s grown up

Watch out

The kid’s grown up

Leo Sayer Solo

Used to see him hanging around everywhere

In a world of his own

See him hanging round street corners where

We would meet

He was a lonely kid

Now they tell us that he’s moved on

Ain’t been seen for so long

Don’t know here he’s gone

It’s been so long, but I’m on the road

And though it ain’t been easy

At least I made it on my own

My tongue’s been tied for far too long

And now your gonna hear me

At least I now where I belong

S.O.L.O. I’m on the road

Hello hello, I’m on my own

Ah y’see everybody’s got someone

To lay their troubled lives upon

I’m really glad I’ve only got my own

Once upon a time, well I had lots of friends

I moved freely through their lives

But two’s a couple and, well three’s a crowd

I was just left out

Hanging around

I’ve had as much now as I can take

There ain’t no need to stay

S.O.L.O. I’m on the road

Hello hello, I’m all alone

Ah yes everybody smiles at me

As I go walking by

But I’m really glad I’ve only got my own

S.O.L.O. I’m all alone

S.O.L.O. I’m going down the road

Leo Sayer Voice In My Head

I’m stronger than an ox, Iron to the core

Getting bolder every day , now I live outside the law

I don’t even get the blues, not anymore

‘Cos I’ve found the perfect place, we’re all looking for

Ah but each time I try to fly

The voice in my head

Says get back to the drawing board and start again…

And I need you, and I want you

Gotta have you, and I can’t let go, no I can’t let go

I can walk into a room and I know just where to stand

I can talk to anyone like a confidential man

I got all the clever lines, and I know all the moves

I’m a perfect suit of clothes, in the perfect pair of shoes

Ah but each time I try to fly

The voice in my head

Says get down to the bottom boy, and start again…

And I need you, and I want you

Gotta have you, ‘cos I can’t let go, no I can’t let go

I was dyin’ of thirst, and looking my worst when I came in here …mmm

Now I stand alone in the the night, wondering what is right

Why you came in here

I can’t stay in here

I don’t hang around no more, the places that we used to

I guess I’ve learned a little, and I know what I should do

I’ve become a little quieter, a little more contained

You could say I’m waiting – waiting for a change

Ah but each time I try to fly

The voice in my head

Says get back to the drawing board, and try again…

And I need you, and I want you

Gotta have you, and I can’t let go, no I can’t let go

And I feel you, ‘cos I failed you

And I lost you, but I can’t let go, no I can’t let go

And I love you, and I want you

More than ever, but I can’t let go – no I can’t let go….

Leo Sayer When The Money Runs Out

When the money runs out

What will we do

Turn around and start anew

Takes all your lovin’ babe

To see me through

Without your love

What would I do

‘Cos I’d put you and me babe

Up against the world

There ain’t nobody else

Like you and me girl

Who wants the money and the luxury

When love and happiness

Is all you need

Can’t you see that all you’re living for

Is dollars and cents

Don’t make no sense

And all you think about in the final end

Is spend spend, spend

So when the money runs out

We’ll fly away

And quit the city life and find a hideaway

Live in the country babe

Off the fat of the land

Nothing to worry about

No money in the bank

Who needs the money – what does it mean

Another roll of paper babe – in a sea of green

To live life for money – you’ve got to be mad

When I watch you burn it up you know I feel so sad

[Solo]

So when the money runs out

What will you do

Turn to me babe and I’ll pull you through

We’ll give back the diamonds

And we’ll sell the car

We’ll live the simple life

And make a brand new start

‘Cos I put you and me babe

Up against the world

There ain’t nobody else

Like you and me girl

Who wants the money and the luxury

When love and happiness

Is all you need

Yeah when the money runs out

I still got you

Yeah when the money runs out

When the money runs out

Leo Sayer When I Need You

When I need you

I just close my eyes and I’m with you

And all that I so wanna give you

It’s only a heartbeat away

When I need love

I hold out my hands and I touch love

I never knew there was so much love

Keeping me warm night and day

Miles and miles of empty space in between us

The telephone can’t take the place of your smile

But you know I won’t be travelin’ forever

It’s cold out, but hold out, and do I like I do

When I need you

I just close my eyes and I’m with you

And all that I so wanna give you, babe

It’s only a heartbeat away

It’s not easy when the road is your driver

Honey that’s a heavy load that we bear

But you know I won’t be traveling a lifetime

It’s cold out, but hold out, and do like I do

Oh, I need you

[Instrumental Interlude]

When I need love

I hold out my hands and I touch love

I never knew there was so much love

Keeping me warm night and day

When I need you

I just close my eyes

And you’re right here by my side

Keeping me warm night and day

I just hold out my hands

I just hold out my hand

And I’m with you darlin’

Yes, I’m with you darlin’

All I wanna give you

It’s only a heartbeat away

Oh, I need you darling
