Memory 03:37
Midnight. Not a sound from the pavement. Has the moon lost her memory. She is smiling alone. In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet And the wind begins to moan. Memory - all alone in the moonlight. I can dream of the old days Life was beautiful then. I remember the time I knew what happiness was. Let the memory live again. Every street lamp seems to beat a fatalistic warning. Someone mutters and a streetlamp sputters and soon it will be morning Daylight - I must wait for the sunrise. I must think of a new life And I mustn't give in. When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too. And a new day will begin. Burnt out ends of smoky days the stale cold smell of morning. A streetlamp dies another night is over another day is dawning. Touch me - it's so easy to leave me. All alone with the memory Of my days in the sun. If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is. Look a new day has begun.

Night Fever 04:22
Listen to the ground There is movement all around There is something goin' down And I can feel it On the waves of the air There is dancin' out there If it's somethin' we can share We can steal it And that sweet city woman She moves through the light Controlling my mind and my soul When you reach out for me Yeah, and the feelin' is right Then I get night fever, night fever We know how to do it Gimme that night fever, night fever We know how to show it Here I am Prayin' for this moment to last Livin' on the music so fine Borne on the wind Makin' it mine Night fever, night fever We know how to do it Gimme that night fever, night fever We know how to show it In the heat of our love Don't need no help for us to make it Gimme just enough to take us to the mornin' I got fire in my mind I get higher in my walkin' And I'm glowin' in the dark I give you warnin' And that sweet city woman She moves through the night Controlling my mind and my soul When you reach out for me Yeah, and the feelin' is right Then I get night fever, night fever We know how to do it Gimme that night fever, night fever We know how to show it Here I am Prayin' for this moment to last Livin' on the music so fine Borne on the wind Makin' it mine Night fever, night fever We know how to do it Gimme that night fever, night fever We know how to show it Gimme that night fever, night fever We know how to do it Gimme that night fever, night fever We know how to show it Gimme that night fever, night fever We know how to do it

The moment I wake up Before I put on my makeup I say a little pray for you While combing my hair now And wondering what dress to wear now I say a little prayer for you Forever and ever, you'll stay in my heart And I will love you Forever and ever, we never will part Oh, how I love you Together, forever, that's how it must be To live without you Would only mean heartbreak for me I run for the bus, dear While riding I think of us, dear I say a little prayer for you At work I just take time And all through my coffee break time I say a little prayer for you Forever and ever, you'll stay in my heart And I will love you Forever and ever we never will part Oh, how I'll love you Together, forever, that's how it must be To live without you Would only mean heartbreak for me I say a little prayer for you I say a little prayer for you My darling, believe me (Believe me) For me there is no one but you Please love me too (Answer his pray) And I'm in love with you (Answer his pray) Answer my prayer now, babe (Answer his pray) Forever and ever, you'll stay in my heart And I will love you Forever and ever we never will part Oh, how I'll love you Together, forever, that's how it must be To live without you Would only mean heartbreak for me

September 03:52
Do you remember the 21st night of September? Love was changing the minds of pretenders While chasing the clouds away Our hearts were ringing In the key that our souls were singing. As we danced in the night, Remember how the stars stole the night away Ba de ya, say do you remember Ba de ya, dancing in September Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day Ba de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya de ya My thoughts are with you Holding hands with your heart to see you Only blue talk and love, Remember how we knew love was here to stay Now December found the love that we shared in September. Only blue talk and love, Remember the true love we share today Ba de ya, say do you remember Ba de ya, dancing in September Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day Ba de ya, say do you remember Ba de ya, dancing in September Ba de ya, golden dreams were shinny days Love bells was ringing Our souls were singing Do you remember, never a cloudy day Ba de ya, say do you remember Ba de ya, dancing in September Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day Ba de ya, say do you remember Ba de ya, dancing in September Ba de ya, golden dreams were shinny days Ba de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya de ya

Strolling along country roads with my baby It starts to rain, it begins to pour Without an umbrella we're soaked to the skin I feel a shiver run up my spine I feel the warmth of her hand in mine Ooh, I hear laughter in the rain Walking hand in hand with the one I love Ooh, how I love the rainy days And the happy way I feel inside After a while we run under a tree I turn to her and she kisses me There with the beat of the rain on the leaves Softly she breathes and I close my eyes Sharing our love under stormy skies Ooh, I hear laughter in the rain Walking hand in hand with the one I love Ooh, how I love the rainy days And the happy way I feel inside I feel the warmth of her hand in mine Ooh, I hear laughter in the rain Walking hand in hand with the one I love Ooh, how I love the rainy days And the happy way I feel inside Ooh, I hear laughter in the rain Walking hand in hand with the one I love Ooh, how I love the rainy days And the happy way I feel inside Ooh, I hear laughter in the rain Walking hand in hand with the one I love Ooh, how I love the rainy days And the happy way I feel inside

In some secluded rendezvous, That overlooks the avenue, With someone sharing a delightful chat, Of this and that, And cocktails for two. As we enjoy a cigarette, To some exquisite chansonette, Two hands are sure to slyly meet beneath a serviette, With cocktails for two. My head may go reeling, But my heart will be obedient, With intoxicating kisses, For the principal ingredient, Most any afternoon at five, We'll be so glad we're both alive, Then maybe fortune will complete her plan, That all began With cocktails for two

Hey, little girl, comb your hair, fix your make-up, soon he will open the door, Don't think because there's a ring on your finger, you needn't try any more. For wives should always be lovers too, Run to his arms the moment that he comes home to you. I'm warning you, Day after day, there are girls at the office and the men will always be men, Don't stand him up, with your hair still in curlers, you may not see him again. Wives should always be lovers too, Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you. He's almost here, hey, little girl, better wear something pretty, Something you wear to go to the city, Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music, time to get ready for love. Time to get ready for love, yes it's time to get ready for love, It's time to get ready, kick your shoes off, baby....,

As 04:01
As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May Just as hate knows love's the cure You can rest your mind assure That I'll be loving you always As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow But in passing will grow older every day Just as all is born is new Do know what I say is true That I'll be loving you always Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky---ALWAYS Until the ocean covers every mountain high---ALWAYS Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea---ALWAYS Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream Did you know that true love asks for nothing Her acceptance is the way we pay Did you know that life has given love a guarantee To last through forever and another day Just as time knew to move on since the beginning And the seasons know exactly when to change Just as kindness knows no shame Know through all your joy and pain That I'll be loving you always As today I know I'm living but tomorrow Could make me the past but that I mustn't fear For I'll know deep in my mind The love of me I've left behind Cause I'll be loving you always Until the day is night and night becomes the day---ALWAYS Until the trees and seas just up and fly away---ALWAYS Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4---ALWAYS Until the day that is the day that are no more Did you know that you're loved by somebody? Until the day the earth starts turning right to left---ALWAYS Until the earth just for the sun denies itself I'll be loving you forever Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through---ALWAYS Until the day that you are me and I am you---AL~~~~~~WA~~ ~~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~ Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky~~~~~AA~~~~ ~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~YS~~ALWAYS We all know sometimes lifes hates and troubles Can make you wish you were born in another time and space But you can bet you life times that and twice its double That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed so make sure when you say you're in it but not of it You're not helping to make this earth a place sometimes called Hell Change your words into truths and then change that truth into love And maybe our children's grandchildren And their great-great grandchildren will tell I'll be loving you Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky--Loving you Until the ocean covers every mountain high--Loving you Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea--Loving you Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream--Be loving you Until the day is night and night becomes the day--Loving you Until the trees and seas up, up and fly away--Loving you Until the day that 8x8x8x8 is 4--Loving you Until the day that is the day that are no more--Loving you Until the day the earth starts turning right to left--Be loving you Until the earth just for the sun denies itself--Loving you Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through--Loving you Until the day that you are me and I am you-- Now ain't that loving you Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky Ain't that loving you Until the ocean covers every mountain high And I've got to say always Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea~~AL~~~WA~~~AYS Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream-Um AL~~WA~~AYS Until the day is night and night becomes the day-AL~~~~WA~~AYS Until the trees and seas just up and fly away-AL~~WA~~~AA~~~~~ Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4~~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA Until the day that is the day that are no more-AA~~~~AA~~AA~~~AYS Until the day the earth starts turning right to left-AL~~~WA~~~A~~~AA Until the earth just for the sun denies itself-~~AA~~~AA~~~AA~~~AYS Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through-AL~~~WAYS Until the day that you are me and I am you Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky Until the ocean covers every mountain high Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream Until the day is night and night becomes the day Until the trees and seas just up and fly away Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4 Until the day that is the day that are no more Until the day the earth starts turning right to left Until the earth just for the sun denies itself Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through Until the day that you are me and I am you

Bésame bésame mucho, Each time I bring you a kiss I hear music divine. So bésame bésame mucho, I love you for ever, Say that you'll always be mine. Dearest one, if you should leave me Then each little dream will take wings And my life would be through. Oh bésame bésame mucho, I love you for ever, You make all my dreams come true. Oh this joy is something new, My arms they're holding you, I never knew this thrill before. Who ever thought I'd be Holding you close to me Whispering: it's you I adore. Yes so dearest one, if you should leave me Then each little dream will take wings, And my life would be through. Oh so bésame bésame mucho, I love you for ever, Make all my dreams come true. Oh this joy is something new, My arms are holding you, I never knew this thrill before. Who ever thought I'd be Holding you close to me Whispering it's you I adore. Oh so dearest one, if you should leave me, Then each little dream will take wings And my life would be through. Oh so bésame bésame mucho, I love you for ever, Make all my dreams come true. I love you for ever, Make all my dreams come true. I love you for ever, Make all my dreams come true.

about

Covers 4 Lovers is a celebration of hits by Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Bee Gees, Burt Bacharach, Earth Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Leroy Anderson and several others. The new arrangements were written by composer & pianist Mika Pohjola, and recorded in the legendary Studio 2 at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden. The musicians have applied a combined pop vs jazz aesthetic where a groove and original melodies meet free-wheeling commentary by the tenor saxophone and a string section. This recording is a must-have for lovers of pop music of the 60s and the 70s.
