The River Cried

 

written by Billy Steinberg & Tom Kelly. 

 

Originally sung by Patty Smyth on her 1987 Album Never Enough, and then later also appeared on her Greatest Hits album.

 

Patty Smyth : The River Cried

 

Russell Hitchcock - The River Cried

I took a walk today, through these grey dirty streets
Thinking of you, missing you, and hoping that we'd meet
I didn't tell my legs where to go,
I just walked up to the dock
I sat on the edge
Fighting a shiver
Telling everything I hurt, inside
And the river cried, 'coz I lost your love
The river cried, ah
The river cried, for my lonely soul
The river cried, you were the only one that really knew me
You were the only one in whom I confide
And hearing this... the River Cried
Oh I say myself today, through these grey lonely streets
Did you have to leave this town or did you just have to leave me?
All these questions in my mind
I didn't see the signs,
The river keeps flowing, I can't keep going
Waiting for you too return, my pride
And the river cried, 'coz I lost your love
The river cried, ah
The river cried, for my lonely soul
The river cried, you were the only one that really knew me
You were the only one in whom I confide
And hearing this... the River Cried
And the river cried, 'coz I lost your love
The river cried, ah
The river cried, for my lonely soul
The river cried, you were the only one that really knew me
You were the only one in whom I confide
And hearing this... the River Cried
And the river cried, 'coz I lost your love
The river cried, ah
The river cried, for my lonely soul
The river cried, you were the only one that really knew me
You were the only one in whom I confid
e
And hearing this... the River Cried

 

 

 

 

Something to Believe In

 

written by Phil Palmer Paul Bliss

 

Covered in 1996 by Justin Hayward on his album The View From the Hill

 

Justin Hayward cover

Little brother's got a habit
That he thinks he's getting under control
And he's selling all our love and best wishes as the hunger grows
Living by the scriptures on the subway wall,
He wants to be a rebel but he can't find a cause ...
He needs something to believe in
He needs something to believe in
All he ever wanted was to get away
Little sister's getting serious with a fella nearly twice her age
And she's aiming to move in with him
As soon as they can find a place
But there's no getting through to her, there's no other way
You can't learn from mistakes that somebody else made ...
He needs something to believe in
He needs something to believe in
All he ever wanted was to get away
Caught in the void of no hope and no choice
it's a nobody wins situation
What can they do? - it's a catch 22
It's a breakdown in communication
Little wonder they're confused no wonder we misunderstand
Little wonder there's a wind of change blowing through the land,
Nobody's guilty ... it's a sign of the times
But we won't see the future 'til we open our eyes
We need something to believe in
(Something to Believe In)
We need something to believe in
(Something to Believe In)
We need something to Believe In
(Something to Believe In)
We need something to believe in
All we ever wanted was to get away

 

 

 

 

 

As I Came of Age

 

written by Lisa Burns & Sal Maida

 

I emailed Lisa Burns and she very kindly replied as follows:-

 

hi Becky - how wonderful you've put up a Sarah site!  Sal Maida and I wrote those songs while we were with MCA Music in the late 80's. they only exist as demos. we recorded them in Memphis with Jack Holder.  Sarah was managed by Peter Asher at the time I believe and Val Garay approached us about her recording them.  The rest is history...it's cool you're interested and keeping her early work alive. 

keep in touch. best Lisa Burns

Lisa Burns Demo

Sorting through my things
See what I can find
Picking through the past
See what's left behind
Multi-coloured sweaters
That moths have eaten holes
A pair of breaded moccasins with worn out soles
Boots were made for walking
Winds were blowing change
Boys fall in the jungle
As I Came of Age
Black and white TV
With a broken 12 - inch screen
Dylan's highway 61
And Jackie's love machine
I reread your letters and again
I cry great tears
Light comes to the surface

Even after all these years

 

 

 

 

Take My Life

 

written by written by Billy Steinberg & Tom Kelly and Andrew Lloyd Webber

 

Dear Becky, Thank you for your email.   Having checked with our Music Department here, I can confirm that you are correct – this track was a one off song with no connection to any shows.   It was co-written with songwriters Kelly & Steinberg who wrote a number of songs for The Bangles amongst others and a Hindi version of the song entitled ZINDAGI, performed by Suchitra K, was released in 1999.  I hope this information helps.  Best Regards Really Useful Group Online Team

 

Full video of Zindagi sung by the lovely Suchitra Krishnamoorthi this video is similar to Sarah's Desert Harem fantasy videos.

There's a river that's swollen with rain
You wouldn't guess that I've known so much pain,
I have a heart, swollen with pride,
You wouldn't guess what I hold inside
Oh, it feels so good to have you around
I feel the walls come tumbling down
I'm ready to change, ready to feel
To be revealed
Take my life, in your hands
Take my love, be my man
I'm tired of all the lonely nights
I need someone to hold me in the candlelight
Take my life, I wanna live
I have so much more I want to give
I need a love that cuts like a knife
Take My Life
There's a river that's runnin' wild
Could I take you back when I was a child
I want to see just who I am
To be revealed
Take My hand, and lead me
With your love you can free me
Oh, take the chains, away from my heart
Take My Life

Some girls get carried away
Others save it for a rainy day
But we'll beg, borrow or steal
We'll paint the town if we don't
Drown in our sex appeal
Hair like honey (Some Girls)
Have lips like wine (Some Girls)
Make lots of money (Some Girls)
Some legends in their own time
Some legends in their own time
Some girls make front page news
Some girls really pay their dues
We'll turn your head round and round
Get on your knees - say "baby please!"
But you can't keep us down
Some girls are mothers and wives
And they dont' have to apologize
We don't beg, borrow or steal
We'll paint the town if we don't
Drown in our sex appeal

 

 

 

 

Brown Eyes

 

written Phil Everly & John Durrill

 

This song appears on the Everly brothers album Some Hearts

 

Original Every Brothers Version

I had a dream last night
We never said goodbye
You were here with me
Brown Eyes
It felt just like old times
When you were by my side
I could see your love shine through
Brown Eyes
Tenderly, you were kissing me
And I held you so tight
And you promised me, forever
As we loved into the night
You may be a dream
A dream that's passed me by
But I'll always dream of you
Brown Eyes

 

 

 

 

Love Changes Everything

 

written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don Black & Charles Hart

 

taken from the musical Aspects of Love - originally sung by Michael Ball in the role of Alex Dillingham

 

Sarah has recorded this song song at least 3 times and the song can be found the following albums - As I came of Age, The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection, Sarah Brightman sings Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don't Cry for Me Argentina (rare Italian release) and Love Changes Everything  ALW Collection Vol. 2

 

Original version with Michael Ball

 

Sarah Live Live in Japan

Love, love changes everything, hands and faces, earth and sky
Love, love changes everything, how you live and how you die
Love, can make the summer fly, or a night seem like a lifetime
Yes love, love changes everything, now I tremble at your name
Nothing in the world will ever be the same
Love, love changes everything, days are longer, words mean more
Love, love changes everything, pain is deeper, than before
Love, will turn your world around, and that world will last forever
Yes, love, love changes everything, brings you glory, brings you shame
Nothing in the world will ever be the same
Off into the world we go, planning futures, shaping years
Love bursts in and suddenly, all our wisdom disappears
Love, makes fools of everyone, all the rules we make are broken
Love, love changes everything, live or perish, in its flame!
Love will never ever let you be the same
Love will never ever let you be the same!

 Original Version from the musical Hair

Good morning starshine, the earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below
Good morning starshine, you lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song
Gliddy glup gloopy nibby nabby noopy la la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba nooby abba nabba le le lo lo
Tooby ooby walla nooby abba nabba
Early morning starshine
Good morning starshine,
There's love in your skies
Reflecting the sunlight
In my lover's eyes
Good morning starshine
so happy to be
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning song
Can you hear me?
Singing a song, humming a song, singing a song
Loving a song, laughing a song, singing the song
Sing the song, song the sing
Song song song sing sing sing sing song

 

 

 

 

Alone again Or?

 

written by Bryan MacLean

 

written by Bryan and performed with Bryan the 60s band Love, found on their album Forever Changes.

 

Original version from Love

Yeah, I said it's all right
I won't forget
All the times I waited patiently for you
I think you'll do just what you choose to do
And I will be alone again tonight my dear
Yeah, I heard a funny thing
Somebody said to me
You know that I could be in love, with almost everyone
I think that people are the greatest fun
And I will be alone again tonight, my dear
Yeah, I heard a funny thing
Somebody said to me
You know that I could be in love with almost everyone
I think that people are the greatest fun

And I will be alone again tonight, my dear

 

 

 

 

 Yesterday

 

written by Aimee Mann

 

performed by Aimee Mann in her band Til Tuesday - unfortunately - this song as not been put on any of their albums. 

 

According to Aimee Mann's' Forums - " Til Tuesday frequently played this song in concert. In fact, it was part of the show that was recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour at the Empire Theater in Philadelphia (but was edited out later). and "This track was originally released as a B-side in Japan but nobody ever got around to mentioning it to to Aimee."

 

Original Version

Yesterday, there was a change somewhere on your face
'Cause yesterday you went looking for
Another warm thing to take his place
Now I'm not trying to tell you that
You have no choices to be weighed
But you've got to believe in faith-healing
'Casue everyone's afraid
Yesterday, you stopped crying
Yesterday your old friend just walked on by
The friend that used to wake you up and
Make you think the world was going to end
Your old friend
I'm sure you know
The old love is ugly now
But no one wants to turn away
From something they think is still allowed
It's clear, that what you're thinking is
How many perfect loves are made
But you've got to believe in faith-healing
Cause everyone's afraid
Yesterday, you stopped, stopped crying
Yesterday your old friend walked on by
Yesterday, you stopped, stopped crying
Yesterday your old friend walked on by

written by Phil Every & Terri Slater

The song is to be found on their The Everly Brothers Sing is  album released in 1967. It was re-released on CD by Collector's Choice Music in 2005.

 

Original Live Version by The Everly Brothers

Way down in Bowling Green
Prettiest girls I've ever seen
A man in Kentucky sure is lucky
To love down in Bowling Green
Bowling Green folks treat you kind
They let you think your own mind
A man in Kentucky sure is lucky
In Bowling Green you walk your owl line
Kentucky sunshine makes the heart unfold
It warms the body and I know it touches the soul
Blue Grass is find. Kentucky owns my mind
The fields down in Bowling Green
Have the softest grass I've ever seen
A man in Kentucky sure is lucky
To lie down in Bowling Green
Bowling Green girls treat you right
They wear dresses cut country right
A man in Kentucky sure is lucky
If he's seen the Bowling Green light

 

 

 

 

 

It Must Be Tough ... To Be That Cool

 

written by Charlotte Deaver

 

No more information known about this writer or song :-(

 

Stuck inside this room, digging in my heels
The paint is stuck on the walls, but it's starting to peel
But maybe it's your vanity, maybe it's your skin
Well, I'm thinking, I'm thinking, your cover's wearing thin
Cause everybody wants a piece of you, you don't give much, but when you
do, you're nobody's friend, you're nobody's fool, tell me It must be tough to be that cool ...
Another notch on your belt another new pair of shoes
Another sidewalk show, where did you get that suit?
Did you think I was waiting or were you just testing me?
You're gonna come up empty, come out angry
Come out alone, now you can't see it
Well I should be more forgiving there's a soul down there
I can hear it crying but I can't find it anywhere
'Cause everybody wants a piece of you, you don't give much
But when you do, you're nobody's friend, you're nobody's fool
Tell me.
It must be tough to be that cool
It must be tough to be that cool
It must be tough to be that cool
It must be tough to be that cool
