Lyrics I ONCE HAD A GOWN,
IT WAS ALMOST NEW,
OH, THE DAINTIEST THING,
IT WAS SWEET ALICE BLUE.
WITH LITTLE FORGET-ME-NOTS PLACED HERE AND THERE,
WHEN I HAD IT ON,
I WALKED ON THE AIR.
AND IT WORE,
AND IT WORE,
AND IT WORE
'TIL IT WENT,
AND IT WASN'T NO MORE.

IN MY SWEET
LITTLE ALICE BLUE GOWN
WHEN I FIRST WANDERED
DOWN INTO TOWN.
I WAS BOTH PROUD AND SHY,
AS I FELT EVERY EYE
AND IN EVERY SHOP WINDOW
I PRIMPED PASSING BY.
THEN IN MANNER OF FASHION,
I'D FROWN
AND THE WORLD SEEMED TO SMILE ALL AROUND.
'TIL IT WILTED, I WORE IT,
I'LL ALWAYS ADORE IT,
MY SWEET LITTLE ALICE BLUE GOWN.

THE LITTLE SILK WORMS
THAT MADE SILK FOR THAT GOWN
JUST MADE THAT MUCH SILK
AND THEN CRAWLED IN THE GROUND.
FOR THERE NEVER WAS ANYTHING LIKE IT BEFORE
AND I DON'T DARE TO HOPE THERE WILL BE ANY MORE.
BUT IT'S GONE,
'CAUSE IT JUST HAD TO BE,
STILL IT WEARS IN MY MEMORY.

IN MY SWEET LITTLE
ALICE BLUE GOWN
WHEN I FIRST WANDERED DOWN INTO TOWN.
I WAS BOTH PROUD AND SO SHY,
AS I FELT EVERY EYE
AND IN EVERY SHOP WINDOW
I PRIMPED PASSING BY.
THEN IN MANNER OF FASHION,
I'D FROWN
AND THE WORLD SEEMED TO SMILE ALL AROUND.
SO IT WOULDN'T BE PROPER
IF MADE OF SILK WERE ANOTHER
MY SWEET LITTLE ALICE BLUE GOWN.

Lyrics YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING ME
FROM A DISTANCE,
TRYING TO KEEP THE PIECES
ALL IN PLACE.
IN MY HEART
IS A FOOLISH PERSISTENCE,
BEEN TAKING YOU FOR GRANTED
UP UNTIL TODAY.
WHAT WE HAVE IS GOOD
BUT COULD SOON BE GONE,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE YOU
TO BE SO STRONG.

ALL ALONG,
YOU'VE BEEN RIGHT THERE
WAITING PATIENTLY.
ALL ALONG,
WHILE I WAS CHASING
DREAM AFTER DREAM
ON MY OWN.
I'VE SPENT ALL MY TIME
TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT STAR
TO WISH UPON.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT IT WAS YOU
ALL ALONG.

CAN'T YOU SEE THE REGRET,
HOW IT HOLDS ME,
WRAPPED AROUND MY SOUL
LIKE A WINTER CHILL.
I COULD LET IT GO
IF YOU TOLD ME
THAT YOU ALWAYS LOVED ME
AND YOU ALWAYS WILL.
WHAT WE HAVE IS GOOD
BUT COULD SOON BE GONE,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE LOVE
TO BE SO STRONG,
AIN'T IT JUST LIKE YOU
TO KEEP OUR LOVE
BURNING STRONG.

ALL ALONG,
YOU'VE BEEN RIGHT THERE
WAITING PATIENTLY.
ALL ALONG,
WHILE I WAS CHASING
DREAM AFTER DREAM
ON MY OWN.
I'VE SPENT ALL MY TIME
TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT STAR
TO WISH UPON.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT IT WAS YOU
ALL ALONG.

Lyrics (ALL'IMPROVVISO AMORE - Italian lyrics):

IL VENTO
CHE SOFFIA PIANO
QUESTA NOTTE CAMBIA
IL MIO DESTINO,
E SENTO CHE
IL CUORE
ANCORA
SI SORPRENDER.

LA VITA ORA HA PI SENSO,
SE GUARDO
QUESTO CIELO IMMENSO,
E LA LUNA INAMORATA
SI ILLUMINER DI ME,
E SAR...

ALL'IMPROVVISO AMORE,
COME IL MARE,
M'INVADE IL CUORE E L'ANIMA
E MI SALVER.
E SAR NATURALE
COME RESPIRARE,
L'ARIA IN ME,
MI PARLER DI TE.

ADESSO TUTTO DIVERSO,
RESPIRO TE NELL'UNIVERSO,
I TUOI OCCHI
SON DUE
STELLE NELL'OSCURIT.

ALL'IMPROVVISO AMORE,
COME IL MARE,
M'INVADE IL CUORE E L'ANIMA
E MI SALVER.
E SAR NATURALE
COME RESPIRARE,
E SAR VERO AMORE
CHE GUARISCE IL CUORE
LUCE DENTRO ME NASCER.


(SUDDENLY LOVE - English lyrics):

THE WIND
THAT SOFTLY BLOWS TONIGHT
IS CHANGING
MY DESTINY,
AND I FEEL
THAT MY HEART
WILL BE SURPRISED
ONCE AGAIN.

LIFE HAS MORE SENSE,
NOW IF I WATCH
THIS IMMENSE SKY,
AND THE LOVING MOON
WILL BRIGHTEN UP WITH ME,
AND WILL BE...

SUDDENLY LOVE,
LIKE THE SEA,
FLOODING MY HEART
AND MY SOUL
AND WILL SAVE ME.
IT WILL BE NATURAL
LIKE BREATHING,
AND THE AIR
WILL TALK ME OF YOU.

NOW EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT,
I BREATHE OF YOU
IN THE UNIVERSE,
YOUR EYES
ARE TWO STARS
IN THE DARKNESS.

SUDDENLY LOVE,
LIKE THE SEA
FLOODING MY HEART
AND MY SOUL
AND WILL SAVE ME.
IT WILL BE NATURAL
LIKE BREATHING,
AND WILL BE TRUE LOVE
HEALING MY HEART
WILL RISE THE LIGHT
INSIDE OF ME!

Lyrics verse 1:
YOUR EYES ONCE TOLD ME A STORY
I BUILT MY CASTLES ON AIR.
LIFE WAS SOON DIMMED
OF ITS GLORY,
I LOVED
BUT YOU CEASED TO CARE.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

verse 2:
YOU BROKE THE NEWS TO ME
KINDLY,
I CAN'T SAY
YOU WERE NOT FAIR.
YET, JUST BECAUSE I LOVED
BLINDLY,
I HAVE THE BURDEN TO BEAR.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

Lyrics WAS IT REALLY ALL THAT SWEET
IN THAT HOUSE
AND ALONG THAT STREET?
MEM'RY CLOUDS
IN A THOUSAND WAYS,
WALKING AMONG MY YESTERDAYS.
DID IT REALLY HAPPEN?
WAS IT REAL?
EYES CAN SEE
WHAT THE HEART CAN FEEL.
VISIONS VANISH
BENEATH THE GAZE,
WALKING AMONG MY YESTERDAYS.

HOLD! HOLD! HOLD!
WAIT FOR ME!
LIGHT THE PICTURE,
LET ME SEE.

SOUVENIRS
OF THE PAST REMAIN.
BITS OF PLEASURE
AND SCRAPS OF PAIN.
LOVE MAY PASS,
BUT THE PERFUME STAYS,
WALKING AMONG MY YESTERDAYS.

HOLD! HOLD! HOLD!
WAIT FOR ME!
LIGHT THE PICTURE,
LET ME SEE.

NOW AND THEN
THE IMAGE CLEARS
TRUTH IS PLAIN
THEN IT DISAPPEARS:
ONE MORE TRICK
THAT THE CAMERA PLAYS
WALKING AMONG MY YESTERDAYS.

HOLD! HOLD! HOLD!
YESTERDAYS.

Lyrics verse 1:
MY LATEST SUN
IS SINKING FAST,
MY RACE
IS NEARLY RUN.
MY STRONGEST TRIALS
NOW ARE PAST,
MY TRIUMPH
HAS BEGUN.

Chorus:
OH COME, ANGEL BAND,
COME AND AROUND ME STAND.
OH BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOW WHITE WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME,
OH BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOW WHITE WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME.

verse 2:
OH BEAR MY LONGING HEART
TO HIM
WHO BLED
AND DIED FOR ME,
WHOSE BLOOD
NOW CLEANSES FROM ALL SIN
AND GIVES ME VICTORY.

Chorus:
OH COME, ANGEL BAND,
COME AND AROUND ME STAND.
OH BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOW WHITE WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME,
OH BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOW WHITE WINGS
TO MY IMMORTAL HOME.

Lyrics YOU DIDN'T LOVE ME LONG
UNTIL THE THRILL
WAS GONE
THEN ANOTHER
MADE ME
YOUR OLD USED TO BE.
HOW LONG
CAN HIS LOVE LAST
WHEN THE NEW
WEARS OFF SO FAST;
THERE'LL ALWAYS BE
ANOTHER,
THEN ANOTHER
AND ANOTHER
JUST LIKE ME.

JUST LIKE ME
HE'LL UNDERSTAND
THE SORROW
OF LOVIN' YOU
TODAY
AND LOSING YOU
TOMORROW.
I'D WARN HIM
BUT HE'D CALL IT
JEALOUSY,
SO LET HIM BE
ANOTHER,
THEN ANOTHER
AND ANOTHER
JUST LIKE ME.

NOW YOU GO
ANYWHERE
FOR A BRAND NEW
LOVE AFFAIR,
SOMEBODY NEW
WHO THRILLS YOU
INSTANTLY.
WHEN THE THRILL
HAS CEASED TO CHILL
AND FROM THE PAST
I KNOW IT WILL;
THERE'LL ALWAYS BE
ANOTHER,
THEN ANOTHER
AND ANOTHER
JUST LIKE ME.

JUST LIKE ME
HE'LL UNDERSTAND
THE SORROW
OF LOVIN' YOU
TODAY
AND LOSING YOU
TOMORROW.
I'D WARN HIM
BUT HE'D CALL IT
JEALOUSY,
SO LET HIM BE
ANOTHER,
THEN ANOTHER
AND ANOTHER
JUST LIKE ME.
