I remember the magical day
When we both said I do
We were so in love
All I needed was you

Before long it began to crumble
My love was never enough
You convinced me I was the problem
And you made my life so tough

(Chorus)
If I could turn back time
I would have declined the dinner date
I can’t believe you fooled me
I thought I’d found the perfect mate
But now I see just who you are
You didn’t show me from the start
I found out too late, too late to save my broken heart

Everyone thought our life was perfect
But me, I knew the truth
I have the bruises to prove it
I put it down to jealous youth

You were always apologetic
You pleaded with me to stay
It will never happen again you said
I believed it would be okay

(Chorus)
If I could turn back time
I would have declined the dinner date
I can’t believe you fooled me
I thought I’d found the perfect mate
But now I see just who you are
You didn’t show me from the start
I found out too late, too late to save my broken heart

The children came along
Something else to hold against me
My life was harder then
I didn’t want them to see

I got through it all
I’m stronger than you believed
I’ve survived to tell the story
I found the courage to leave

(Chorus)
If I could turn back time
I would have declined the dinner date
I can’t believe you fooled me
I thought I’d found the perfect mate
But now I see just who you are
You didn’t show me from the start
I found out too late, too late to save my broken heart

I found out too late

From the day that we first met
I didn’t see a future for us
I tried to ignore your advances
But you still took your chances

I didn’t want to hurt your feelings
I agreed to have a date
Not knowing down the line
what would be our fate

I will rise again you’ll see
And when I do, I’ll be stronger
I will rise again you’ll see
You don’t control me any longer
You didn’t deserve the love I gave
You broke my heart, you should be ashamed
I will rise again you’ll see
I survived, I’m still me

I put you on a pedestal
And taught you how to live
To be the best that you could be
I had so much of me to give

I gave you so much confidence
And always let you shine
I watched you grow in stature
Before you left me behind

I will rise again you’ll see
And when I do, I’ll be stronger
I will rise again you’ll see
You don’t control me any longer
You didn’t deserve the love I gave
You broke my heart, you should be ashamed
I will rise again you’ll see
I survived, I’m still me

When I think of all the times you swore your love for me
I see now it was all a game
You walked away with no backward glance
You walked away, no shame

I will rise again you’ll see
And when I do, I’ll be stronger
I will rise again you’ll see
You don’t control me any longer
You didn’t deserve the love I gave
You broke my heart, you should be ashamed
I will rise again you’ll see
I survived, I’m still me

I will rise again

Things haven’t been the same since you’ve been gone
You kept everything together, everyone in line
You were that one go to person
Who made everything just fine

I wish you could see what you created
And how the children are growing up
They’ve all taken their place in this world
You would be so proud

If you can hear me, I miss you
If you can see me show me a sign
If I had one wish in this world that would make my life complete
It would be to always have you here with me and mine
It would be to always have you here with me

You were the wise one there was no doubt
You had the answers to everything for sure
Your love helped rid me of my fears
And made my worries disappear

I don’t think you will ever know
How much you meant to me
My life will never be the same
I guess that’s the way it’s got to be

If you can hear me, I miss you
If you can see me show me a sign
If I had one wish in this world that would make my life complete
It would be to always have you here with me and mine
It would be to always have you here with me

Since you've been gone

Since you've been gone

We didn’t know what lay ahead for us
We were young and carefree
Nothing was going to hold us back
Life was good for you and me

As you kissed me goodbye that summer morning
I didn’t know I wouldn’t kiss you again
I didn’t know that in the next few hours
My heart would fill with pain

(Chorus)
I still feel you all around me
I still see your smiling face
I still feel the love you gave me
time can never erase
And although I’ll never feel your arms around me anymore
You will always live within me
I will see you in my dreams
Yes you’ll always live within me
I will see you in my dreams

They tell me time will heal me
And the pain I feel will fade
How can I let that happen
And lose the memories we made

There will never be another
How could there ever be
When you and I were so entwined
We were as one for all to see

(Chorus)
I still feel you all around me
I still see your smiling face
I still feel the love you gave me
time can never erase
And although I’ll never feel your arms around me anymore
You will always live within me
I will see you in my dreams
Yes you’ll always live within me
I will see you in my dreams

I will see you in my dreams

The tension is mounting
As we all take our seats
We’re chanting, we’re singing
We know we can’t get beat

The whistle blows, the game begins
The noise is deafening
The ball is kicked into the air
And lands on the left wing

At 22 minutes played
I hear the fans roar
We’re on our way to victory
The first goal has been scored

We are the champions,
We are the champions
The trophy is ours once more
What a game, what a score
The cup is ours, let’s roar

The ball comes down the left hand side
There’s a scuffle in the box
The ref declares a penalty
The other team’s in shock

2 minutes left until the full time whistle
The nerves are taking control
No need to worry this time
It’s a belter of a goal

We are the champions,
We are the champions
The trophy is ours once more
What a game, what a score
Listen to the roar

The champions

She stands on the corner of the boulevard
Surrounded by red lights
It’s Smokey, dark and seedy
But she stands there every night

Her face is tired and haggard
Her eyes are dead inside
she’s left her child home alone
She knows she must provide

(Chorus)
Shes a hooker, she uses her body
she let’s men have their kicks
She’s a hooker, She uses her body
If only to get her next fix

She looks around the boulevard
She sees the new girls in town
They are all waiting like vultures
Waiting to steal her crown

She goes home empty handed
It never used to be this way
She knows her days are numbered
But she still goes out each day

Chorus)
Shes a hooker, she uses her body
she let’s men them have their kicks
She’s a hooker, She uses her body
If only to get her next fix

Chorus)
Shes a hooker, she uses her body
she let’s men them have their kicks
She’s a hooker, She uses her body
If only to get her next fix

Here I am
Here we are
Who would have thought we’d make it this far.
Of all the times I hated you,
You always brought me round.
Of all the times our love was true, will we ever find

Lasting love, lasting love
The love we watch in the movies,the love we see in the streets
The love we want for one another
Why do our hearts always seem to miss a beat

Here I am
Here we are
Do we just want the fairytale,
Is our love real or shallow,are we trying too much to make it work. Do you think we’ll ever know

Lasting love, lasting love
The love we watch in the movies the love we see in the streets
The love we want for one another
Why do our hearts always seem to miss a beat

Why do we want the fairytale but pull each other apart,
Why do we always break each other’s hearts
Do you think we’ll ever have

Lasting love, lasting love
The love we watch in the movies the love we see in the streets
The love we want for one another
Why do our hearts always seem to miss a beat

Lasting Love

No-one knows who you really are
You keep it all hidden inside
Everyone is watching you
you have nowhere left to hide

But I know the real you
I have the key to your black soul
You can't run away from me
You no longer have control
Show yourself for what you are
People need to know the truth
The dark force that lies within
The pain, the hurt, the abuse

How can you live your life this way
You're the real Jekyll and Hyde
A genuine wolf in sheep's clothing
a being with many sides

But I know the real you
I have the key to your black soul
You can't run away from me
You no longer have control
Show yourself for what you are
People need to know the truth
The dark force that lies within
The Pain, the hurt, the abuse

The smile you portray to everyone
is a mask you wear each day
But one day that mask will fall
Then yourself you will betray

But I know the real you
I have the key to your black soul
You can't run away from me
You no longer have control
Show yourself for what you are
People need to know the truth
The dark force that lies within
The pain, the hurt, the abuse

I know the real you
