ANOTHER DAY OF SUN


I think about that day

I left him at a Greyhound station

West of Santa Fé

We were seventeen, but he was sweet and it was true

Still I did what I had to do

Cause I just knew

Summer Sunday nights

We'd sink into our seats

Right as they dimmed out all the lights

A technicolor world made out of music and machine

It called me to be on that screen

And live inside each scene

Without a nickel to my name

Hopped a bus, here I came

Could be brave or just insane

We'll have to see

Cause maybe in that sleepy town

He'll sit one day, the lights are down

He'll see my face and think of how he

Used to know me

Climb these hills

I'm reaching for the heights

And chasing all the lights that shine

And when they let you down

You'll get up off the ground

Cause morning rolls around

And it's another day of sun

I hear 'em every day

The rhythms in the canyons

That'll never fade away

The ballads in the barrooms

Left by those who came before

They say "you gotta want it more"

So I bang on every door

And even when the answer's "no"

Or when my money's running low

The dusty mic and neon glow

Are all I need

And someday as I sing my song

A small-town kid'll come along

That'll be the thing to push him on and go go

Climb these hills

I'm reaching for the heights

And chasing all the lights that shine

And when they let you down

You'll get up off the ground

Cause morning rolls around

And it's another day of Sun

And when they let you down

The morning rolls around

It's another day of sun

It's another day of sun

It's another day of sun

It's another day of sun

Just another day of sun

It's another day of sun

Another day has just begun

It's another day of sun

It's another day of sun

SOMEONE IN THE CROWD


You got the invitation

You got the right address

You need some medication?

The answer's always yes

A little chance encounter

Could be the one you've waited for

Just squeeze a bit more

Tonight we're on a mission

Tonight's the casting call

If this is the real audition

Oh, God, help us all

You make the right impression

Then everybody knows your name

We're in the fast lane

Someone in the crowd

Could be the one you need to know

The one to finally lift you off the ground

Someone in the crowd could

Take you where you wanna go

If you're the someone ready to be found

The someone ready to be found

Do what you need to do

'Til they discover you

And make you more than who

You're seeing now

So with the stars aligned

I think I'll stay behind

You've got to go and find

That someone in the crowd

That someone in the crowd

Is someone in the crowd the only thing you really see?

Watching while the world keeps spinning 'round?

Somewhere there's a place where I find who I'm gonna be

A somewhere that's just waiting to be found

Someone in the crowd could be the one you need to know

The someone who could lift you off the ground

Someone in the crowd could take you where you wanna go

Someone in the crowd could make you

Someone in the crowd could take you

Flying off the ground

If you're the someone ready to be found

A LOVELY NIGHT


The sun is nearly gone

The lights are turning on

A silver shine that stretches to the sea

We've stumbled on a view

That's tailor-made for two

What a shame those two are you and me

Some other girl and guy

Would love this swirling sky

But there's only you and I

And we've got no shot

This could never be

You're not the type for me

Really?

And there's not a spark in sight

What a waste of a lovely night

You say there's nothing here?

Well, let's make something clear

I think I'll be the one to make that call

But you'll call?

And though you looked so cute

In your polyester suit

It's wool

You're right, I'd never fall for you at all

And maybe this appeals

To someone not in heels

Or to any girl who feels

There's some chance for romance

But, I'm frankly feeling nothing

Is that so?

Or it could be less than nothing

Good to know

So you agree?

That's right

What a waste of a lovely night

CITY OF STARS


City of stars

Are you shining just for me?

City of stars

There's so much that I can't see

Who knows?

Is this the start of something wonderful and new?

Or one more dream that I cannot make true?

City of stars

Are you shining just for me?

City of stars

There's so much that I can't see

Who knows?

Is this the start of something wonderful and new?

Or one more dream that I cannot make true?

CITY OF STARS (DUET)


City of stars

Are you shining just for me?

City of stars

There's so much that I can't see

Who knows?

I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you

That now our dreams

They've finally come true

City of stars

Just one thing everybody wants

There in the bars

And through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants

It's love

Yes, all we're looking for is love from someone else

A rush

A glance

A touch

A dance

A look in somebody's eyes

To light up the skies

To open the world and send it reeling

A voice that says, I'll be here

And you'll be alright

I don't care if I know

Just where I will go

Cause all that I need is this crazy feeling

A rat-tat-tat on my heart

Think I want it to stay

City of stars

Are you shining just for me?

City of stars

You never shined so brightly

START A FIRE


I don't know why I keep moving my body

I don't know if this is wrong or if it's right

I don't know if there's a beat, or something's taking over me

And I just know I'll feel so good tonight

I don't know what your name is but I like it

I've been thinking 'bout some things I wanna try

I don't know what you came to do, but I wanna do it with you

And I just know I'll feel so good tonight

Oh, if we keep on dancing

Take our rhythm to new heights

Feel the heat of passion, baby

Light up the night

We could start a fire

Come on, let it burn baby

We could start a fire

Let the tables turn baby

We could start a fire

I just know I feel so good

Don't you know I feel so good

I just know I feel so good

Tonight

I don't care if this tuns into a riot

Lets get reckless, tear this place down to the floor

Turn the music way up loud

Can't nobody stop us now

I just know I feel so good tonight

I just know I feel so good tonight

We could start a fire

Come on, let it burn baby

We could start a fire

Let the tables turn baby

We could start a fire

I just know I feel so good

Don't you know I feel so good

Don't you know, don't you know?

Tonight

AUDITION (THE FOOLS WHO DREAM)


My aunt used to live in Paris

I remember, she used to come home and tell us

These stories about being abroad

And I remember she told us that she jumped into the river once

Barefoot

She smiled

Leapt, without looking

And tumbled into the Seine

The water was freezing

She spent a month sneezing

But said she would do it again

Here's to the ones who dream

Foolish as they may seem

Here's to the hearts that ache

Here's to the mess we make

She captured a feeling

Sky with no ceiling

The sunset inside a frame

She lived in her liquor

And died with a flicker

I'll always remember the flame

Here's to the ones who dream

Foolish as they may seem

Here's to the hearts that ache

Here's to the mess we make

She told me:

"A bit of madness is key

To give us new colors to see

Who knows where it will lead us?

And that's why they need us"

So bring on the rebels

The ripples from pebbles

The painters, and poets, and plays

And here's to the fools who dream

Crazy as they may seem

Here's to the hearts that break

Here's to the mess we make

I trace it all back to then

Her, and the snow, and the Seine

Smiling through it

She said she'd do it again
