hi there! welcome to my world..here i am the real me..no pretensions about being happy when i am crying inside, no pretensions about knowing everything when i am actually in the dark..enjoy reading!:)

Why does one's heart always long for the one thing that it can never hope to possess? It must always pine for the one thing that it can not have. Love is a childish game for mortal fools.

STAY
Carol Banawa

I want you stay
Never go away from me
Stay forever
But now, now that you're gone
All i can do is pray for you
To be here beside me again

CHORUS
Why did you have to leave me
When you said that love would conquer all
Why did you have to leave me
When you said that dreaming was good as reality

And now i must move on
Trying to forget all the mem'ries
Of you near me
But i can't let go of your love that has taught me
To hold on

I want you to stay never go away from me
I want to stay but I have to go my way...


BROKEN VOW
Lara Fabian

Tell me her name
I want to know
The way she looks
And where you go
I need to see her face
I need to understand
Why you and I came to an end

Tell me again
I want to hear
Who broke my faith in all these years
Who lays with you at night
When I'm here all alone
Remembering when I was your own

CHORUS
I'll let you go
I'll let you fly
Why do I keep on asking why
I'll let you go
Now that I found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow

Tell me the words I never said
Show me the tears you never shed
Give me the touch
That one you promised to be mine
Or has it vanished for all time

I close my eyes
And dream of you and I
And then I realize
There's more to life than only bitterness and lies
I close my eyes

I'd give away my soul
To hold you once again
And never let this promise end


ALL I ASK OF YOU
from The Phantom of the Opera

Raoul (Cliff)
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.
Christine (Sarah)
Say you'll love me ev'ry waking moment;
turn my head with talk of summertime.
Say you need me with you now and always;
promise me that all you say is true,
that's all I ask of you.
Raoul
Let me be your shelter,
let me be your light;
you're safe, no one will find you,
your fears are far behind you.
Christine
All I want is freedom,
a world with no more night;
and you, always beside me,
to hold me and to hide me.
Raoul
Then say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime;
let me lead you from your solitude.
Say you want me with you, here beside you,
anywhere you go, let me go too,
that's all I ask of you.
Christine
Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime.
Together
Say the word and I will follow you.
Share each day with me, each night, each morning.
Christine
Say you love me ...
Raoul
You know I do.
Together:
Love me, that's all I ask of you ...
Love me, that's all I ask of you.


COME WHAT MAY
Nicole Kidman & Ewan McGregor

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I've never seen the sky before
I want to vanish inside your kiss
Every day I'm loving you more and more
Listen to my heart, can you hear it sings
Telling me to give you everything
Seasons may change, winter to spring
But I love you until the end of time

CHORUS
Come what may
Come what may
I will love you until my dying day

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesn't seem such a waste
It all revolves around you
And there's no mountain too high
No river too wide
Sing out this song I'll be there by your side
Storm clouds may gather
And stars may collide
But I love you until the end of time

Oh, come what may, come what may
I will love you, I will love you
Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place


FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE
Barbra Streisand & Bryan Adams

I finally found someone,
who knocks me off my feet
I finally found the one
who makes me feel complete...
It started over coffee,
we started out as friends
It's funny how from simple things,
the best things begin...

This time is different
la la la la
It's all because of you!
It's better than it's ever been
Cuz we can talk it through
My favorite line
was "Can I call you sometime?"
It's all you had to say...
To take my breath away...

CHORUS
This is it!
Oh, I finally found someone
Someone to share my life
I finally found the one
to be with every night
Cause whatever I do
It's just got to be you!
My life has just begun
I finally found someone...

Did I keep you waiting?
I didn't mind
I apologize
Baby, that's fine
I would wait forever
Just to know you were mine
Ya Know - I love your hair...
Are you sure it looks right?
I love what you wear...
Isn't it too tight?
You're exceptional!
I can't wait for the rest of my life...
