Lyrics ALONE TOGETHER,
BEYOND THE CROWD,
ABOVE THE WORLD,
WE'RE NOT TOO PROUD
TO CLING TOGETHER,
WE'RE STRONG
AS LONG
AS WE'RE TOGETHER.
ALONE TOGETHER,
THE BLINDING RAIN,
THE STARLESS NIGHT,
WE'RE NOT IN VAIN
FOR WE'RE TOGETHER,
AND WHAT IS THERE
TO FEAR
TOGETHER?

OUR LOVE
IS AS DEEP
AS THE SEA.
OUR LOVE
IS AS GREAT
AS A LOVE CAN BE.
AND WE CAN WEATHER
THE GREAT UNKNOWN,
IF WE'RE TOGETHER.

Lyrics THE PARTY'S OVER,
THE GAME IS ENDED,
THE DREAMS I DREAMED
WENT UP IN SMOKE.
THEY DIDN'T PAN OUT
AS INTENDED,
I SHOULD KNOW HOW
TO TAKE A JOKE.

I'LL GO MY WAY
BY MYSELF,
THIS IS THE END
OF ROMANCE.
I'LL GO MY WAY
BY MYSELF,
LOVE IS
ONLY A DANCE.
I'LL TRY
TO APPLY MYSELF
AND TEACH MY HEART
HOW TO SING.
I'LL GO MY WAY
BY MYSELF
LIKE A BIRD
ON THE WING.

I'LL FACE
THE UNKNOWN,
I'LL BUILD A WORLD
OF MY OWN,.
NO ONE KNOWS BETTER
THAN I MYSELF,
I'M BY MYSELF
ALONE.

Lyrics DANCING IN THE DARK
TILL THE TUNE ENDS,
WE'RE DANCING IN THE DARK
AND IT SOON ENDS
WE'RE WALTZING
IN THE WONDER
OF WHY WE'RE HERE.
TIME HURRIES BY,
WE'RE HERE A
ND GONE.
LOOKING
FOR THE LIGHT
OF A NEW LOVE
TO BRIGHTEN UP
HE NIGHT,
I HAVE YOU,
LOVE,
AND WE CAN FACE
THE MUSIC TOGETHER,
DANCING IN THE DARK.

Lyrics verse:
HE'S THE PRINCE OF WALES
OF JIMTOWN,
THE EBONY FASHION PLATE,
USED TO BE
A CARELESS DRESSER,
BUT NOT OF LATE.
HE'S TAKING A WALK
IN JIMTOWN,
SWINGIN'
IN A JUBILEE WAY!
THE CROWD YELLS,
WHERE YOU GOIN'
BIG BOY?
AND HE FEELS THE URGE
TO SAY:

Chorus:
GOT A BRAN' NEW SUIT,
GOT A BRAN' NEW TIE,
GOT A BRAN' NEW TWINKLE
IN MY EYE.
DO YOU KNOW
THE REASON WHY?
GOT A BRAN' NEW GIRL,
AN' I WON'T DISPUTE
SHE'S THE REASON
I GOT A BRAN' NEW TIE
AN' A BRAN' NEW SUIT.
WHEN I'M WITH HER,
GOTTA LOOK MY BEST,
PUT ON MY TAN SHOES,
GRAY SPATS,
DOUBLE BREASTED VEST,
GONNA WEAR MY STICKPIN,
IT'S A TECLA PEARL,
WITH A BRAN' NEW TIE
AN' A BRAN' NEW SUIT,
AN' A BRAN' NEW GIRL!

Lyrics IN THE NIGHT
THOUGH WE'RE APART,
THERE'S A GHOST OF YOU
WITHIN MY HAUNTED HEART
GHOST OF YOU,
MY LOST ROMANCE.
LIPS THAT LAUGH,
EYES THAT DANCE.
HAUNTED HEART
WON'T LET ME BE,
DREAMS REPEAT
A SWEET
BUT LONELY SONG
TO ME.
DREAMS ARE DUST,
IT'S YOU WHO MUST
BELONG TO ME
AND THRILL
MY HAUNTED HEART.
BE STILL,
MY HAUNTED HEART.

TIME ROLLS ON
TRYING IN VAIN
TO CURE ME,
YOU ARE GONE,
BUT YOU REMAIN
TO LURE ME.
YOU'RE THERE
IN THE DARK
AND I CALL,
YOU'RE THERE
BUT YOU'RE NOT THERE
AT ALL.
OH, WHAT WILL I DO
WITHOUT YOU,
WITHOUT YOU.

IN THE NIGHT,
THOUGH WE'RE APART,
DREAMS REPEAT
A SWEET
BUT LONELY SONG
TO ME.
DREAMS ARE DUST,
IT'S YOU WHO MUST
BELONG TO ME
AND THRILL
MY HAUNTED HEART.
BE STILL,
MY HAUNTED HEART.

Lyrics Male verse:
MY LIFE HAS BEEN DEVOTED
TO UNRAVELING
A MYSTERY THAT IS OLD
BUT EVER NEW
I HAVE TRIED TO FIND
THE KIND OF GIRL
WHO WILL DO.
I HAVE DONE
ABOUT A MILLION MILES
OF TRAVELING,
I HAVE SAILED
ALL THE BLUE,
AND NOW
AT LAST
I HAVE HIT ON YOU.

Chorus:
HIGH AND LOW,
LOW AND HIGH,
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU,
YOU HAVE BEEN HIDING
OR YOU WOULD HAVE
COME TO ME!
MY OH ME,
ME OH MY,
NO INVESTIGATOR
EVER MADE A GREATER
DISCOVERY.
I CANNOT TELL YOU
WHAT EXCITEMENT
THAT NIGHT MEANT
WHEN I MET YOU!
AND WHAT WRONG
OR RIGHT MEANT
OUR HEARTS ONLY KNEW
I WAS LOW,
NOW I AM HIGH,
HIGH UPON A STEEPLE,
TELLING ALL THE PEOPLE
YOU HAVE COME TO ME.

Female verse:
AS LOVE IS SOMETHING
I HAD ONLY READ ABOUT,
TO STUDY IT
I AM NATURALLY INCLINED.
I HAVE HAD TO WAIT
BECAUSE FATE
WAS FAR FROM KIND.
THE SORT OF MAN
WORTH WORRYING
MY HEAD ABOUT
SEEMED DIFFICULT
TO FIND,
BUT YOU ARE
JUST WHAT
I HAD IN MIND.

Chorus:
HIGH AND LOW,
LOW AND HIGH,
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU,
YOU HAVE BEEN HIDING
OR YOU WOULD HAVE
COME TO ME!
MY OH ME,
ME OH MY,
NO INVESTIGATOR
EVER MADE A GREATER
DISCOVERY.
I CANNOT TELL YOU
WHAT EXCITEMENT
THAT NIGHT MEANT
WHEN I MET YOU!
AND WHAT WRONG
OR RIGHT MEANT
OUR HEARTS ONLY KNEW
I WAS LOW,
NOW I AM HIGH,
HIGH UPON A STEEPLE,
TELLING ALL THE PEOPLE
YOU HAVE COME TO ME.

Lyrics verse:
I BEHELD HER
AND WAS CONQUERED
AT THE START,
AND PLACED HER
ON A PEDESTAL APART:
I PLANNED
THE LITTLE HIDEAWAY
THAT WE WOULD SHARE
SOME DAY.
WHEN I MET HER
I UNFOLDED
ALL MY DREAM,
AND TOLD HER
HOW SHE'D FIT
INTO MY SCHEME
OF WHAT BLISS IS.
THEN THE BLOW CAME,
WHEN SHE GAVE HER NAME
AS MISSUS.

Choruses:
I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO CHANGE MY PLAN
I SHOULD HAVE REALIZED
THERE'D BE ANOTHER MAN!
I OVERLOOKED THAT POINT
COMPLETELY
UNTIL THE BIG AFFAIR
BEGAN
BEFORE I KNEW
WHERE I WAS AT
I FOUND MYSELF
UPON THE SHELF,
AND THAT WAS THAT.
I TRIED
TO REACH THE MOON
BUT WHEN I GOT THERE,
ALL THAT I COULD GET
WAS THE AIR,
MY FEET ARE BACK
UPON THE GROUND
I'VE LOST
THE ONE GIRL
I FOUND.

I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO CHANGE MY PLAN
I SHOULD HAVE REALIZED
THERE'D BE ANOTHER MAN!
WHY DID I BUY
THOSE BLUE PAJAMAS
BEFORE THE BIG AFFAIR
BEGAN?
MY BOILING POINT
IS MUCH TOO LOW
FOR ME TO TRY
TO BE A SLY
LOTHARIO.
I'LL CRAWL RIGHT BACK
INTO MY SHELL,
DWELLING
IN MY PERSONAL HELL.
I'LL HAVE TO CHANGE MY PLAN
AROUND
I'VE LOST THE ONE GIRL
I FOUND.

Lyrics verse:
IN A WORLD
OF GLITTER AND GLOW
IN A WORLD
OF TINSEL AND SHOW
THE UNREAL
FROM THE REAL THING
IS HARD TO KNOW
I DISCOVERED SOMEBODY
WHO COULD BE
TRULY WORTHY AND TRUE,
YES,
I MET MY IDEAL THING
WHEN I MET YOU.

Chorus:
I SEE YOUR FACE BEFORE ME
CROWDING MY EV'RY DREAM,
THERE IS YOUR FACE BEFORE ME,
YOU ARE MY ONLY THEME.
IT DOESN'T MATTER
WHERE YOU ARE,
I CAN SEE
HOW FAIR YOU ARE,
I CLOSE MY EYES
AND THERE YOU ARE,
ALWAYS.
IF YOU COULD
SHARE THE MAGIC,
IF YOU COULD
SEE ME TOO,
THERE WOULD BE
NOTHING TRAGIC
IN ALL MY DREAMS
OF YOU.
WOULD THAT MY LOVE COULD HAUNT YOU SO,
KNOWING
I WANT YOU SO,
I CAN'T ERASE
YOUR BEAUTIFUL FACE
BEFORE ME.

Lyrics verse:
EV'RY DAY
IS A BRAND NEW DAY
WHEN YOU ARE MINE,
BUT THE MOMENT
THAT YOU GO AWAY,
NO SUN WILL SHINE.
YOUR LOVE IS MY REWARD,
EACH NIGHT I THANK THE LORD
TELL ME
TILL TIME IS DONE
WE'LL BE ONE.

Chorus:
IF THERE IS SOMEONE LOVELIER THAN YOU,
THEN I AM BLIND,
A MAN WITHOUT A MIND,
IF THERE IS SOMEONE LOVELIER THAN YOU.
BUT NO,
I AM NOT BLIND,
MY EYES HAVE TRAVELLED EVERYWHERE
IN HOPE
THAT I MIGHT FIND
A CREATURE HALF SO FAIR
IF THERE IS SOMEONE LOVELIER THAN YOU,
BY ALL THAT'S BEAUTIFUL,
SUCH BEAUTY CAN'T BE TRUE.

Lyrics Chorus:
LOVE IS A DANCING THING,
GAY AS A MAYDAY,
I'M IN THE HEYDAY OF IT.
LOVE IS A DANCING THING,
IT'S DANCING
MY LIGHT HEART AWAY.
WHEN THIS ENTRANCING THING
CAME LIKE A SPRING SONG,
I HEARD THE SINGSONG OF IT.
LOVE IS A DANCING THING,
ROMANCING
MY LIGHT HEART AWAY.

Interlude:
HEAVENLY DAWN
AND HEAVENLY DARK DAY
IS DONE TO WALTZ TIME,

THIS WONDERFUL RAPTURE!

Lyrics verse:
YESTERDAY,
THINGS WERE SO GLOOMY,
BUT TODAY,
YES SIR,
THEY'RE SHINING AND NEW.
OH, WHAT A CHANGE
HAS COME TO ME!
I'VE BEEN DUSTED
OFF THE SHELF,
I AM NOT MYSELF
WHAT A DIFF'RENT WORLD
I VIEW.

Chorus:
I SEE A NEW SUN
UP IN A NEW SKY,
AND MY WHOLE HORIZON
HAS REACHED A NEW HIGH!
YESTERDAY,
MY HEART SUNG A BLUE SONG,
BUT TODAY,
HEAR IT HUM
A CHEERY NEW SONG!
I DREAMED A NEW DREAM,
I SAW A NEW FACE,
AND I'M SPREADING SUNSHINE
ALL OVER THE PLACE
WITH A NEW POINT OF VIEW,
HERE'S WHAT GREETS MY EYE:
NEW LOVE,
NEW LUCK,
NEW SUN IN THE SKY!
