Track Name: Life So Sweet
I can see the stormclouds gathering above you
I can see your burdens on your heavy heart and feet
I could be your sunshine if you let me love you
Baby, I could make your life so sweet

They say into each life a little rain must fall
Blue skies turn to blue days, summer turns to fall
Love has let you down and you don’t know where to turn
Can’t you see the one who aches for you, how I burn?

Those stormclouds coming, they’ll blow you away
Even with your sorrows weighing down your heavy heart and feet
Let me be your sunshine, let me love you
Won’t you let me make your life so sweet?
I know I could make your life so sweet.
Track Name: Cry Me a River
Lyrics and music by Arthur Hamilton

Now you say you love me
You’ve cried the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I’ve cried a river over you

Now you say you’re sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I’ve cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that you said
Told me love was too plebeian, told me you were through with me and

Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
I’ve a river over you
Track Name: I'm a Fool for You
I’m a fool for you
My darling little love
There’s no one but you
I would rather be dreaming of
The whole world laughs at me
For when you’re near I fall
But I don’t hear their laughter, no,
I don’t see them at all.

I’m a fool for you
Oh, you drive me mad
If you loved me too
I would never be sad
When you’re gone I dream
And tell my heart to sleep
For I would rather slumber, dear,
Than lie awake and weep

I’m a fool for you
No matter where you are
I’m a fool for you
Whether near to me or far
I’m a fool for you
No matter what I do
So darlin’, couldn’t you be
A fool for me, too?
Track Name: If It Be Your Will
Lyrics and music by Leonard Cohen

If it be your will
That I speak no more
And my voice be still
As it was before
I will speak no more
I shall abide until
I am spoken for
If it be your will

If it be your will
That a voice be true
I will sing to you
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing

If it be your will
If there is a choice
Let the rivers fill
Let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill
On all these burning hearts in hell
If it be your will
To make us well

And draw us near
And bind us tight
All your children here
In their rags of light
In our rags of light
All dressed to kill
And end this night
If it be your will
If it be your will
Track Name: Black Coffee
Music by Sonny Burke
Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster

I’m feeling mighty lonesome
Haven’t slept a wink
I walk the floor and watch the door
And in between I drink

Black coffee
Love’s a hand me down brew
I’ll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room

I’m talking to the shadows
One o’clock to four
And, Lord, how slow the moments go
When all I do is pour

Black coffee
Since the blues caught my eye
I’m hanging out on Monday
My Sunday dreams to dry

Now a man is born to go a-lovin’
A woman’s born to weep and fret
To stay at home and tend her oven
And drown her past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes

I’m moanin’ all the morning
An mourning all the night
And in between it’s nicotine
And not much hard to fight

Black coffee
Feelin’ low as the ground
It’s driving me crazy, this waitin’ for my baby
To maybe come around
Track Name: You Don't Know What Love Is
Music and lyrics by Gene dePaul and Don Ray

You don’t know what love is
Until you’ve learned the meaning of the blues
Until you’ve loved a love you’ve had to lose
You don’t know what love is

You don’t know how lips hurt
Until you’ve kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you’ve flipped your heart and you have lost
You don’t know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart fears the thought of reminiscing?
And how lips that taste of tears lose their taste for kissing?

You don’t know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you’ve faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don’t know what love is
Track Name: The Gentle Rain / Sanfter Regen Fällt
Music and lyrics by Luiz Bonfà and Matt Dubey
German lyrics by Fawn Fritzen

We both are lost and alone in the world
Walk with me in the gentle rain
Don’t be afraid, I’ve a hand for your hand
And I will be your love for a while

I feel your tears, as they fall on my cheek
They are warm like the gentle rain
Come little one, you have me in the world
And our love will be sweet, will be sad
Like the gentle rain
Like the gentle rain
Like the gentle rain

Wir sind allein
Und allein in der Welt
Komm’ mit mir, sanfter Regen fällt
Gib mir die Hand
Halte fest meine Hand
Denn mein Herz ist für Dich eine Weil’

Tränen und Leid
Fühl’ ich auf meiner Wang’
Komm’ mit mir, sanfter Regen fällt
Komm Liebelein, Du hast mich in der Welt
Uns’re Liebe ist so süß und betrübt
Wie der Regen warm
Wie der Regen warm
Wie der Regen warm
Track Name: Under My Skin (Original)
I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I’ve got you under my skin
I feel you
I breathe you
I taste you when I’m with him

I haven’t slept in a month or a year
Finding excuses for my distance
If you feel the same it’s not good to me here
Wish I could give up this dance
‘Cause now

I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I’ve got you under my skin
I feel you
I breathe you
I taste you when I’m with him

An innocent dream of a flirt or a fling
Takes every moment of thought
I’ve done all I can to get over this thing
But still, even still I am caught
‘Cause still

I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I’ve got you under my skin
I feel you
I breathe you
I taste you when I’m with him

You’re in my blood in my fevered brain
You’re in my sweat and the tears that I rain
Everything’s gray since the day you came in
Admit or deny it, both ways it’s a sin
That

I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I’ve got you bad under my skin
I feel you
I breathe you
I taste you when I’m with him

I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I’ve got you under my skin
Track Name: Tout doucement
Music and lyrics by Emile Jean Mercadier and Rene Albert Clausier

Tout doux, tout doux, tout doucement
Toujours, tout doux, tout doucement
Comme ça
La vie c’est épatant

Tout doux, tout doux, tout doucement
Toujours, tout doux, tout doucement
Comme ça
La vie je la comprends

N’allez jamais trop vite
Vous avez tout le temps
Attention à la dynamite
Prenez garde aux volcans
A ces jeunes énervés
Qui ne savent pas aller

Tout doux, tout doux, tout doucement
Toujours, tout doux, tout doucement
Comme ça
En flânant gentiment

N’allez jamais trop vite
En aimant simplement
Pour avoir de la réussite
Soyez très très prudent
L’amour alors viendra
Se blottir dans vos bras

Tout doux, tout doux, tout doucement
Toujours, tout doux, tout doucement
Comme ça
En flânant gentiment
En souriant gentiment
En flânant gentiment
Tout doucement
Track Name: Hushabye Mountain
Music and lyrics by Robert and Richard Sherman

A gentle breeze from Hushabye Mountain
Softly blows o’er Lullaby Bay.
It fills the sails of boats that are waiting,
Waiting to sail your worries away.

It isn’t far to Hushabye Mountain
And your boat waits down by the quay.
The winds of night so softly are sighing,
Soon they will blow your troubles to sea.

So close your eyes on Hushabye Mountain,
Wave good-bye to cares of the day,
And watch your boat from Hushabye Mountain
Sail far away from Lullaby Bay.
Track Name: Sad Song
Wandering around the city
Wandering around alone
I’m far from paradise
Far from home

It seems I’ve always wandered
Couldn’t settle anywhere
No one ever mattered
No one made me care

Except the one who got away
And took my heart along
Now all that’s left from that sad story
Is this sad, very sad song
