Toto Live For Today

Baby, I’m a liar when I tell you that I just don’t care

Babe, I’ve got to have you but you’re never ever, ever there

Hey, the game is over, give it up right now

You’re teasin’ me, baby, how do you expect me to be without you

You let your hair down low

You didn’t want to know about lovin’ me, babe

Let’s live for today, tomorrow may never come

Let’s live for today, tomorrow may never come

But you just can’t tell anymore

Baby, you’re a teaser but you just don’t dare

Baby, keep your secrets, this whole thing just ain’t fair

Tonight is almost over, tomorrow you’ll be gone away

So please baby, won’t you stay

You let your hair down low

You didn’t want to know about lovin’ me, babe

Let’s live for today, tomorrow may never come

Let’s live for today, tomorrow may never come

But you just can’t tell anymore

[Instrumental break]

You let your hair down low

You didn’t want to know about lovin’ me, babe

Let’s live for today, tomorrow may never come

Let’s live for today, tomorrow may never come

But you just can’t tell anymore

Toto Takin’ It Back

I think I’ll go it alone

You should’ve shown me if you cared

Lies will turn a heart into stone

Few would have known me if they dared

‘Cause I’m takin’ it back where it all began

The house on the cape

The place on the sand

I’d take it all back if it’d just make you understand

Girl how I’ve tried to forget you

Now it would take more than I could buy

Sure I could lie to myself too

But that won’t work seeing that I’ve tried

‘Cause I’m takin’ it back where it all began

I’d live in a shack

Eating out of a can

I’d take it all back if it’d just make you understand

[Instrumental break]

Now that I’m feeling assured

You’d better watch your every move

Stop, think about every word

It’s looking like you’re going to lose

‘Cause I’m takin’ it back where it all began

The house on the cape

The place on the sand

I’d take it all back if it’d just make you understand

You should’ve shown me if you cared [repeats out]

Toto Tale Of A Man

It’s been forty days and nights

Since I’ve heard from you

Girl I cannot bring myself to ask you why

It’s a fact that you’re not here

I ain’t accusing you

All I seek is simple answer from the sky

[Chorus:]

See the circle spinning ’round

Changing colors without a sound

Helter Skelter

Doom’s day plan

Was just another tale of a man

Let me down – let me down in you heaven

I can really see everything quite clear

I can almost reach my hand enough to touch you

Girl I have it save and sound

I’ve got it yeah

[Repeat chorus]

[Instrumental break]

It’s been forty days and nights

Since I’ve heard from you

Girl I cannot bring myself to ask you why

It’s a fact that you’re not here

I ain’t accusing you

All I seek is simple answer from the sky

[Repeat chorus]

(Ooh I love you love you baby

Get down tonight)

Toto Love Has The Power

There is too much hatred, there is too much starvation, too much inhumanity

Some people get the kicks out of throwing bricks at me

No real reason, just jealousy

Angry words and bad attitudes is gonna get you nowhere

Watching you watching me, it’s alright, cause love will make it right

[Chorus:]

Love has the power,

it’s strong as a tower you can lean on

Love is a fire,

a burning desire, it’s so warm

Some believe in the almighty dollar,

some don’t believe in nothing at all

But there’s a power that’s within you,

it will never never ever let you down

I believe we have the key to liberty and unity, are you listening

[Repeat chorus]

One hundred million voices singing

(can you hear the voices singing)

No weak, no strong, no right, no wrong

Imagine (you gotta keep imagining)

Impossible the skeptics say,

Wait and see there’s gonna come a day

[Repeat chorus]

Love has the power,

It’s strong as a tower you can lean on

Love has the power,

It’s strong as a tower you can lean on

There’s no difference between black or white, the light of life

I can hear the children laughing

Men at war, stop your worries, give peace a chance, there’s a new day dawning

Come together, come together, come together

(Wisdom is the mouth of peace, of innocence)

Toto Endless

You better wrap yourself around me

It’s a miracle that you’ve found me

I can’t fool myself any longer

We’re both willing, young and able

Let’s put our cards on the table

This feelin’s gettin’ stronger

I see the sunlit tears in your eyes again

Now I realize

Maybe it’s the right time

Oh, maybe you’re the right one

Ooh, and now I understand

You could’ve slipped through my hands

Well, I just can’t wait anymore

There’s a chance we can make it

We just gotta take it

[Chorus:]

Endless are the nights

I stay with you

Endless are the dreams

You made come true

Forever in my arms

You’re the reason tonight our love is endless

We better get ourselves together

Before we hit bad weather

And we can’t go any further

Won’t you give me some affection

Point me in the right direction

This storm is blowin’ harder

Here comes that voice deep inside again

And it says to me

That maybe it’s the right thing

Oh, maybe you’re the right one

Ooh, and now I understand

You could’ve slipped through my hands

Well, I just can’t wait anymore

There’s a chance we can make it

We just gotta take it

[Repeat chorus]

Toto How Many Times

How many years

Keep on slipping away

And it seems that your life doesn’t matter

You never had a chance

How many ways is a love torn apart

And you look to your heart

For some answers

Don’t let it slip away

Can’t blame myself anymore

I’ve been beaten and accused before

Well I took some bad advice

And I paid too high a price

I could sell my soul

You know I wouldn’t think twice

How many times must a man fall down

I said whoa-oh-oh oh-oh-oh oh

How many dreams have to fall to the ground

It goes on an’ on an’ on an’ on an’ on yeah

How many times do you look for some sign

That there’s hope

And your life has some meaning

Almost every day

Maybe I was born to wander

I got no high hopes any longer

So tell me my friend

Just where does it end

Is nothin’ ever gonna free me

From this hell I’m livin’ in

How many times must a man fall down

I said whoa-oh-oh oh-oh-oh oh

How many dreams have to fall to the ground

It goes on an’ on an’ on an’ on an’ on yeah

[Instrumental break]

Can’t blame myself anymore

I’ve been beaten and accused before

So tell me my friend

Just where does it end

I’m sick and tired

Of livin’ in a rat race that no one ever wins

How many times must a man fall down

I said whoa-oh-oh oh-oh-oh oh

How many dreams have to fall to the ground

It goes on an’ on an’ on an’ on an’ on yeah

[repeats 2x]

Toto If It’s The Last Night

I don’t know if you’ll understand

But I’m hopin’ that you’ll follow me down to the waterway

I’ll be there if you change your mind

Listening to the ticking of the hands on a clock working overtime

If it’s the last night it oughta be left for lovin’, girl

If it’s the last night it oughta be left for lovin’, girl

If it’s the last night it oughta be left for lovin’, girl

Now you’re here standing next to me

I’ve seen your face on every girl that I’ve held since you went away

It’s getting late and I have to know

I’m mending the wings of a heart that was broken not so long ago

If it’s the last night it oughta be left for lovin’, girl

If it’s the last night it oughta be left for lovin’, girl

If it’s the last night it oughta be left for lovin’, girl

[Instrumental break]

If it’s the last night it oughta be left for lovin’, girl

[repeats 5x]

Toto No End In Sight

The curse of blood

Falls upon this nation

I wash my hands

And hang my head in shame

I pray for peace

And forge the crooked valley

This dreader fear

Held prisoner inside me

I search the stars, still I find

No rhyme or reason

I can’t see a thing

That’s gonna make it right, oh make it right

You’re still walking at midnight

Alone with voices in your mind

You see the world in black and white

You know until you see the light

There ain’t no end, no end in sight

I can’t justify

The cleansing of society

The human race

It ain’t no race at all

I breach the flood

Of political insanity

Where hope once stood

Is filled with lies and shame

Toto Mad About You

There’s something I must say

Something I must do

I planned it all this way

Designed it just for you

Do you wanna be with me

Be with me at all?

Do you have to be so cool

Your gentle touch manoeuvered me

But all the time I always knew

[Chorus:]

I’m really mad about you

There’s nothing bad about our love

I’m giving you the only heart I have

But I’m afraid tonight it won’t be enough

Can we go on this way?

There’s nothing left to proof

It’s not another game

Or another simple move

Do you believe in me

Believe in me at all?

Are you telling me the truth?

Or is it just imagination or the perfect dream

That I’m here with you

[Chorus]

[Instrumental break]

Do you wanna be with me

Be with me at all?

Do you have to be so cool

Your gentle touch manoeuvered me

But all the time I always knew

I’m really mad about you

There’s nothing bad about our love

I’m giving you the only heart I have

But I’m afraid tonight it won’t be enough

I’m really mad about you

There’s nothing bad about our love

I never had a broken heart before

But I know you’ll never tear

Tear mine apart

Toto St. George And The Dragon

Can you tell me where I might find the Hydra

Is he wearing a familiar face

Does he still live below Seventh Avenue

With the princess dipped in lace

Does he know that I’m a soldier of fortune

And not a victim of circumstance

We drew lots for his soft underbelly

Now his fate is sealed with my lance

I can tell by the look in your eye

You’ve never seen the man with nothing to say

I can tell by the look in your eye

You’d better watch yourself

St. George is on his way

Is it true that he’s a mighty warrior

And a viper of the first degree

I’ve been sentenced here to slay the giant

Geld this fear I cannot see

Can you tell me where I might find the Hydra

Is he wearing a familiar face

Does he still live below Seventh Avenue

In the slums of Satan’s grace

I can tell by the look in your eye

You’ve never seen the man with nothing to say

I can tell by the look in your eye

You’d better watch yourself

St. George is on his way
