For You sung by John Denver

Just to look in your eyes again
Just to lay in your arms
Just to be the first one
always there for you
Just to live in your laughter
Just to sing in your heart
Just to be every one of your dreams come true

Just to sit by your window
Just to touch in the night
Just to offer a prayer each day for you
Just to long for your kisses
Just to dream of your sighs
Just to know that I'd give my life, for you

For you, all the rest of my lifeSinging together at a wedding
For you, all the best of my life
For you alone -Only for you.
Just to wake up each morning
Just to you by my side
Just to know that you're never really far away
Just to reason for living
Just to say "I adore"
Just to know that you are here in my heart to stay

For you all the rest of my life
For you all the best of my life
For you alone -
Only for you (Music on the Piano)
Just the words of a love song
Just the beat of my heart
Just the pledge of my life My love, for you.

Annie's Song sung by John Denver

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in Springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again.

Come, let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again.

(HUM)

Let me give my life to you Come let me love you Come love me again You fill up my senses Like a night in a forest Like a mountain in Springtime Like a walk in the rain Like a storm in the desert Like a sleepy blue ocean You fill up my senses Come fill me again.

Can't Help Falling in Love sung by Elvis Presley

Wise men say only fools rush in/ But I can't help falling in love with you. Shall I stay? Would it be a sin? If I can't help falling in love with you. Like a river flows surely to the sea Darling so it goes Some things are meant to be. Take my hand Take my whole life too For I can't help falling in love with you Like a river flows surely to the sea Darling so it goes Some things are meant to be. Take my hand tale my whole life too For I can't help falling in love with you For I can't help falling in love with you.

Love Me That's All I Ask Of You (Phantom of the Opera)

(Him) No more talk of darkness,
Forget these wide eyed fears,
I'm here, nothing can harm you,
My words will warm and calm you
Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I'm here with you beside you
To guard you and to guide you

(Her) Say your love every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summertime
Say you'll live with me love here now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That's all I ask of you.

Let me be your shelter Let me be your light You're safe no one will find you Your fears are far behind you.

All I want is freedom A world with no more night And you always beside me To hold me and to hide me

(Him) Then say you'll share with me One love one lifetime Let me lead you from your solitude Say you need me with you here beside you Anywhere you go let me go too Christine, (love me) that's all I ask of you.

(Together) Love me that's all I ask of you (Together) Anywhere you go Let me go too Love me, that's all I ask of you.

A love until the end of time Placido Domingo and Maureen McGovern

I love you with a love that knows no one but you A love I never thought I'd find

A love that comes just once and never comes again A love until the end of time.

I give you all the love I have in me to give

If I could only make you mine I love you with a love I've never known before A love until the end of time.

I can't believe you were meant for me

You're everything I wanted you to be

I always knew someday That I would find

A love like ours until the end of time

I love you with a heart That knows no other love A love I can't believe is mine Now that I've found you I will never let you go A love until the end of time

I can't believe that you are meant for me.

You're everything I wanted you to be

I always knew someday that I would find A love until the end of time.

Marry Me sung by Neil Diamond

Say that you'll marry me
Sometimes carry me
And I will be there for evermore
For you.

And if you marry me I will give everything And I will do anything that you need me to

You' ll know by the love in my eyes And the beat of my heart I'll be there

You'll know Cause you'll never be lonely again Anytime anywhere.

This I promise if you marry me

Promise you'll stay with me We'll make some memories And maybe a dream or two will come true. Who knows?

This I can say for sure All that I have is yours. You'll never wonder where I stand. It shows

You'll know by the love in my eyes and the beat of my heart I'll be there.

You'll know Cause you'll never be lonely again Anytime, anywhere

All I have promised you I will be If you will only say you'll marry me. I won't ever forget these words and I 'll love you for all I'm worth

If you say you will marry me Won't you marry me, Marry me.

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face - Nana Mouskouri

The first time ever I say your face I felt the sun rose in your eyes and the moon and stars were the gifts you gave to the dark and empty and skies my love To the dark and empty skies The first time ever I kissed your lips I felt the earth move in my hand Like the trembling heart of a captive beard that was there at my command, my lover, that was there at my command The first time ever I held you near, and felt your heart beat close to mine I knew our joy would fill the air And last till the end of time, my love, and last till the end of time The first time ever I saw your face.

Be My Love - David Gray

Be my love For no one else can end this yearning This need that you and you alone create Just fill my arms The way you fill my dreams The dreams that you inspire With every sweet desire Be my love.

And with your kisses set me burning One kiss is all I need To seal my fate And hand in hand We'll find love's promised land There'll be no one but you for me. Eternally, if you will be my love.

Be my love For no one else can end this yearning This need that you and you alone create Just fill my arms The way you fill my dreams The dreams that you inspire With every sweet desire Be my love And with your kisses set me burning One kiss is all I need To seal my fate And hand in hand We'll find love's promised land There'll be no one but you for me. Eternally, if you will be my love.

The Rose Bette Midler

Some say love it is a river That drowns the tender need Some say love it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed Some say love it is a hunger an endless aching need I say love it is a flower and you its only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance It's the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance It's the one who won't be taken Who cannot seem to give And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely And the road has been too long And you think that love is only For the lucky and the strong Just remember in the winter Far beneath the bitter snows Lies the seed that with the sun's love In the Spring Becomes the rose.

 

Endless Love Diana Ross/Lionel Ritchie

My Love, there's only you in my life, The only thing that's bright, My first love, you're every breath that I take You're every step I make, And I, I want to share all my love With you No one else will do And your eyes, they tell me how much you care Oh, yes, you will always be , My endless love.

Two heart, two hearts that beat as one, Our lives have just begun, For ever I'll hold you close in my arms I can't resist your charm My love I'll be a fool for you I'm sure You know I don't mind Oh you know I don't mind You mean the world to me I know I found in you My endless love.

I'll be that fool for you I'm sure, you know I don't mind You know I don't mind and You You'll be the only one Cos no one can deny This love I have inside I'll give it all to you, My love, My Endless Love.

The Power of Love - Jennifer Rush

The Whisper in the morning Of lovers ......? All rolling by like thunder now As I look in your eyes I'll hold on to your body And feel each move you make Your voice is warm and tender I love that I could not forsake

Because I'm your lady And you are my man Whenever you reach for me I'll do all that I can Even though there may be times It seems I'm far away But never wonder where I am Cause I am always By your side Cause I am your lady And you are my man Whenever you reach for me I'll do all that I can We're heading for something Somewhere I've never been Sometimes I am frightened by the ........ of love And the power of love

The sound of your heart beating Maybe .... The feeling that I can't go on is light years away Cause I'm your lady And you are my man Whenever you reach for me I'm gonna do all that I can We're heading for something Somewhere I've never been Sometimes I am frightened by the

The power of love The power of love.
