Almost Love

Almost Love
Seems to me as if that’s all we’re coming to
And it feels good after all that I’ve been through.
Killing time
I’ve been down to my last dime
I’ve been scared that all the pain’s gonna show, but now I know
That I was hurting the most ‘cause I’ve never been close to

Almost Love
And it feels like it’s the closest I’ve been yet.
And it’s stronger now the closer that I get.
Coming Home
I’ve been running far too long
Now it looks like if I hang on to you, I’ll make it through
And if you Hang onto me, I’ll bet this could be

Almost Love
Seems to me as if that’s all we’re coming to
And it feels good after all that I’ve been through.
Killing time
I’ve been down to my last dime
I’ve been scared that all the pain’s gonna show, but now I know
That I was hurting the most ‘cause I’ve never been close to
Almost Love
Kind of feels like it’s Almost Love

Almost Love – Music by John Barry, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford
Recorded by Catherine Howe on Breeze BI 113 (1981)
Arranged by Bobby Patrick. Side B – Inside Moves Theme (Bobby Patrick Band)

With author's note (Cynthia Haagens)

I wrote the lyrics to "The Secrets of My Heart" and in the CD package they were mistranslated by a Japanese translator who transcribed the lyrics after listening to the song and getting the words completely wrong!! This has been a huge source of both laughs and irritation for me since I wrote the lyric!

Here is my actual lyric:

Private dreams I never told you
Come to hold me in the dark
Moonlit skies and long embraces
Eyes that shine from lovers' faces

You'll never know
The secrets of my heart

Unknown worlds you'll never share,
love
Call to you, we'll sleep apart
Empty arms will wait so lonely
I'll touch the night and let it hold me

You'll never show
The secrets of your heart

Private dreams are meant for living
Trace them with a treasure chart
Tell you all my hidden wishes
And never fly from lovers' kisses

If you could share
The secrets of my heart

Music John Barry
Lyrics Cynthia Haagens and Graeme Clifford
Performed by Kristina Nichols

Our Time is Now

Our time is now,
Not one day soon.
Your eyes don’t lie,
Look how bright the stars
And how close the moon.

Our time is now,
And evermore.
It took a while
But a love like ours
Was worth waiting for.

Chorus:
Love has no season,
There are no rules.
Those who stop dreaming are fools.
So come with me
Because our time is now.

[Repeat chorus]

Our time is now.
Our time is now.
Our time is now.

Give Me A Smile

Give me a smile / Give me a sense of who I am/
Give me a breath of vanished days / and fires that once blazed within/

Give me a smile / Give me a vast yet private sky/
Give me a light beyond the light/
Where other worlds just might begin...

Cx: Give me the courage / to see how limitless we are/
and not be haunted by the past / the past has passed/

Give me a smile / give me a promise I can touch/
Give me a stillness in my soul / A reason for this earth to spin/
Give me a smile...

cx: repeat
Last verse repeat to end!

Just tick the days off one by one

Just tick the days off one by one
Some days I feel these days will never end
Just to see you standing by my door
Made the way I've hungered for

Just tick the days off one by one
This is a love you don't recover from
Only fools tell you time goes so fast
And that the love, it doesn't last

Perfect love Brings a different kind of pain
It's a pain you will always taste
I need to taste that taste again

Just tick the days off one by one
Until tomorrow becomes here and now
Quietly just as an answered prayer
I'll turn around and you'll be there Together

There Will Come A Day

There will come a day, one day I swear
When you will awake and find me there
Day after day I think of the day
When I will see you, just see you

There will come a night, I know there will
Where this won't stand perfectly still
Night after night, I dream of the night
I'll hold you, just hold you

All that stands between us
All that's in our way
Is the pain of waiting
And doubting every day

There will come a day, one day I swear
When you will awake and find me there
Day after day I think of the day
I'll see you, just see you
Hold you, just hold you
Love you and take you on

Just To See Each Other Again

We will hear the song no one's ever heard,
And our souls will dance on the wind,
I have dreamed and dreamed what it will be like,
Just to see each other again

There are unseen gifts that the Gods bestow,
Memory saves us all in the end,
And a loving heart will not ever age,
Oh to see each other again

Can't wait to see you,
So much to say,
Can you imagine living that day?

We will harvest all of our dreams my love,
I will paint your face on the wind,
And a shadowed world will begin to glow,
When we see each other again

Oooh,
Can you imagine living that day?

We will harvest all of our dreams my love,
I will paint your face on the wind,
And a shadowed world will begin to glow,
When we see each other,
Just see each other,
Be with each other again,
Just see each other again.

Places (Out Of Africa Theme)

Places,
I still remember places.
Those precious times in places,
When everything was new.

Places,
I still can feel those places
Our hearts were never lighter
The sky was twice as blue.

Places,
What happened to those places?
Though they have changed forever,
I'm still in love with you.

Romance,
Do you remember romance?
When nothing seemed to matter
Apart from me and you.

Passion,
Wilder than any ocean
Timeless as any mountain
We grew closer
We grew wiser
Every day

Places,
I still remember places.
Those precious times in places
When everything was new.

Places,
Do you remember places?
When nothing seems to matter,
I'm still in love with you.

Somewhere In Time

lyric: As sung by Yingying Huang

Somewhere in time
You came into my world
Love was beyond what I imagined love would be
Now just a dream
I hold till the end of time
Hoping someday we'll find what we left behind

There'll come a day
Our paths will meet again
We'll cross the bridge of time and space to a love that's free
No more goodbye
No lonely waiting
That'll be our day to love,to live all our dreams

If we believe and keep alive
The hope that love will stand the test of distance and time
Then we shall find our new tomorrow
Somewhere in time

Someday there'll be no time between us
There'll just be endless days for us to love and share
We'll rise above the tears of our lonely years
Into a world beyond today
In another somewhere

oo00OO00oo

lyric: As sung by Pat Castillo

Somewhere in time
We met on timeless hills
And in the evening midst
We kissed and time stood still
Before the dawn
We found forever
Moments are timeless
When I feel your caress

Love never goes
Once it has touched your heart
Just like the scent of wine
that's left as two lips part
A taste of love will linger after
I find the meaning now
in all that I see

You're always here inside of me
And I know when love is true
It's always with you

Somewhere in time
I came to realize
Love never goes...

oo00OO00oo

lyric: As sung by Martin Nievera

Somewhere in time,
we'll share
one love,
one life.

And with each gentile touch
i know
this much,
its true.

And when we kiss,
i see forever,
and in your arms,
im lost, you find me again.

No words, no writes,
describe this pain inside,
no matter how hard i tried,
i die inside,
to let you go,

To say goodbye
my heart breaks forever
somewhere in time, i know
we'll meet again

You're in my heart
You're in my soul
and if you go away from me
i cant let go.

Until begin,
i know,
we'll meet again
Somewhere in time.

somewhere in time
i know i've met you,
was it a day, a month, a thousand years ago.

locked in my mind,
there lies a memory,
a world of you and me that we used to know

somewhere in time i know i've kissed you,
could i be wrong,
lets kiss so there will be no doubt

give me a sign that you remember,
that timeless place that i've been talking about.

somewhere in time
i've seen your smile,
i've known your warmth, your love, your tears the touch of your hand

somewhere in time
i know i've loved you
somewhere in t-i-m-e.
