simply red - lady ...



Lady In Red-Simply Red

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance
Given half a chance
And I've never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your hair
That catch your eyes
I have been blinded

Lady in red is dancing with me
Cheek to cheek
There's nobody here
It's just you and me
It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget the way you look tonight

I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled it took my breath away
And I have never had such a feeling such a feeling
Of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

Lady in red is dancing with me
Cheek to cheek
There's nobody here
It's just you and me
It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget the way you look tonight

I never will forget the way you look tonight
Lady in red
My lady in red
My Lady in red
My lady in red
I love you












Simply Red - If Yo...



If You Don't Know Me By Now-Simply Red

If you don't know me by now
You will never never never know me

All the things that we've been through
You should understand me like I understand you
Now girl I know the difference between right and wrong
I ain't gonna do nothing to break up our happy home
Oh don't get so excited when I come home a little late at night
Cos we only act like children when we argue fuss and fight

If you don't know me by now (If you don't know me)
You will never never never know me (No you won't)
If you don't know me by now
You will never never never know me

We've all got our own funny moods
I've got mine, woman you've got yours too
Just trust in me like I trust in you
As long as we've been together it should be so easy to do
Just get yourself together or we might as well say goodbye
What good is a love affair when you can't see eye to eye, oh

If you don't know me by now (If you don't know me)
You will never never never know me (No you won't)
If you don't know me by now (You will never never never know me)
You will never never never know me (ooh)













Saving All My Love...



Saving All My Love For You-Whitney Houston

A few stolen moments is all that we share
You've got your family, and they need you there
Though I've tried to resist, being last on your list
But no other man's gonna do
So I'm saving all my love for you

It's not very easy, living all alone
My friends try and tell me, find a man of my own
But each time I try, I just break down and cry
Cause I'd rather be home feeling blue
So I'm saving all my love for you

You used to tell me we'd run away together
Love gives you the right to be free
You said be patient, just wait a little longer
But that's just an old fantasy
I've got to get ready, just a few minutes more
Gonna get that old feeling when you walk through that door
For tonight is the night, for feeling alright
We'll be making love the whole night through
So I'm saving all my love
Yes I'm saving all my love
Yes I'm saving all my love for you

No other woman, is gonna love you more
Cause tonight is the night, that I'm feeling alright
We'll be making love the whole night through
So I'm saving all my love
Yeah I'm saving all my love
Yes I'm saving all my love for you
For you, for you

housekeeper.mp3







Margaret tells us what it's like to be a housekeeper and look after a family and their guests.
She explains what made her stop working as a 'professional' and become a 'Mrs Mop.'

As you listen, try to answer these questions:

1: What did Margaret do before she became a housekeeper?
2: Why did she decide to change her job?
3: Why was she once embarrassed when people asked her what she did?


Housekeeper

Jackie: Hello, welcome to the programme, Im Jackie Dalton.

Margaret
Hello, my name is Margaret McMullen

Jackie: Today were going to explore some work-related language and find out
about a certain job. Any ideas what?

Margaret
Im the Head Housekeeper at this incredibly beautiful Tudor house, which has had a
variety of inhabitants throughout its long history, but now has been restored and
brought back into a full-time family house.

Jackie: Margaret is a housekeeper in a big house a housekeeper is someone
who looks after a house, makes sure it's clean and looks after the
people who live in it. Margaret is going to tell us now about the most
enjoyable aspect of her job. The most enjoyable aspect - the thing she
likes most. What does she like most? Listen to find out:

Margaret
The most enjoyable aspects of the job are definitely the buzz of giving very good
service to guests when they come. Even just making their beds, you know. I mean,
making beds is making beds, but theres a way of doing it well and you get Yes, that
really does look good.

Jackie: Did you get the answer? The most enjoyable aspect for Margaret is
giving very good service to guests - she used the word buzz.

Margaret
the buzz of giving very good service to guests when they come.

Jackie: If you get a buzz from something, you enjoy it, it makes you feel
excited. Listen to more examples of that expression being used.

Voice: I get a real buzz from taking part in a big race.

Voice: I love the buzz of knowing hundreds of people are watching me
perform on stage.

Jackie: Now its time for the next listening comprehension question. When did
Margaret decide to become a housekeeper? And what did she do
before?

Margaret
Well, I decided to enter into the service world when I became redundant from my
public service job. I worked in a school.

Jackie: Margaret made the decision when she was made redundant from her
previous job, which was being a teacher. To be made redundant is to
lose your job because you are no longer needed.

STING

Jackie: Why was Margaret a bit worried about the decision she made?

Margaret
When I decided that I would do this, I thought myself Are you being completely mad
here? Here you are, you are a university graduate, youre a qualified teacher, youve
had a professional career - why on earth do you want to go and be a professional Mrs.
Mop?

Jackie: Margaret was worried because she was well qualified and had a
professional career and was going to do something which she saw as
not a professional career as she puts it, being Mrs. Mop - a kind of
joking way of describing a simple person who spends her time
cleaning the floor. But Margaret decided to make the change anyway.
Why did she finally make that decision?

Margaret
And I thought well, I dont particularly want to carry on doing what Im doing
because it is stressful, I want to do something different so Im going to give it a go.

Jackie: Margaret decided she wanted to do something different and teaching
was too stressful. What expression did she use to say that she was
going to try being a housekeeper? Listen again.

Margaret
I want to do something different so Im going to give it a go.

Jackie: To give it a go to try something to see what it's like.

Voice: Im worried about riding horses because they look scary, but Ill give it
a go!

Voice: Go on, give it a go! You might actually enjoy it!

Jackie: Once Margaret had become a housekeeper, she was uncomfortable at
first when other people asked her what she did. Why was that?

Margaret
Now, when it came to actually working as a professional Mrs. Mop, when people ask
me in a social situation, What to do you do? that hit me across the head personally,
that I could no longer say that I was a professional bursar or I was a teacher
something that had status. I was saying, Well actually Im a housekeeper. And I had
difficulty with that myself because Id always perceived myself as being a
professional person in a professional job. I never associated housekeeping with being
a profession.

Jackie: Margaret was worried about her status whether other people would
see her as being not very educated or important. She said she didn't see
housekeeping as a professional job. But what does she think now?

Margaretand it wasnt until I was in it for about six months that I realised it was. And I was
being particularly insecure by holding back from saying what I did. Now, I say it
very happily.

Jackie: Well now Margaret is comfortable with being a housekeeper. She used
to be insecure about it uncertain, embarrassed, but now she is quite
happy to say what she does!

A BLUE STAR IN YOUR EYES
Jo'Lene Tover

On the wings of an eagle,
My love for you flies.
Soaring higher and higher,
And touching the skies.

I reached up above,
And pulled a star from the sky.
To place it within,
Your precious minds eye.

To dwell there forever,
As my love for you.
On the wings of our love,
Enduring and true.

I honor you my darling,
With all that I am.
Please darling please,
Will you be my man?

There are so many things,
My heart wants to say.
I love you sweetheart,
There is no other way.



Thank you; 1lovepoems.com


Soar Fly, Go up, Glide.
Precious Beloved, Costly, Dear.
Dwell live.
Enduring
Lasting.
Honor Cherish, Respect.
Sweetheart Darling, Lover, Dear.

I don't like to sl...


I Don't Like To Sleep Alone-Paul Anka


I don't like to sleep alone
Stay with me
Don't go
Talk with me for just a while
So much of you to get to know
Reaching out touching you
Leaving all the worries all behind
Loving you the way I do
My mouth on yours and yours on mine
Marry me
Let me live with you
Nothing's wrong and love is right
Like a man says in his song
Help me make it through the night
Loneliness can get you down
When you get to thinking no one cares
Lean on me
And I'll lean on you
Together we will see it through

No, I don't like to sleep alone
It's sad to think some folks do
No I don't like to sleep alone
No one does
Do you?

No, I don't like to sleep alone
It's sad to think some folks do
No I don't like to sleep alone
No one does
Do you?













The Beatles - I wi...


I Will- The Beatles


Who knows how long I've loved you,
You know I love you still,
Will I wait a lonely lifetime,
If you want me to I will.

For if I ever saw you,
I didn't catch your name,
But it never really mattered,
I will always feel the same.

Love you forever and forever,
Love you with all my heart;
Love you whenever we're together,
Love you when we're apart.

And when at last I find you,
Your song will fill the air,
Sing it loud so I can hear you,
Make it easy to be near you,
For the things you do endear you to me,
you know I will.
I will

Yesterday-The Beatles

Yesterday
All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe
In yesterday

Suddenly
I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday
Came suddenly

Why she
Had to go I don't know
She wouldn't say
I said
Something wrong now I long
For yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe
In yesterday

Why she
Had to go I don't know
She wouldn't say
I said
Something wrong now I long
For yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe
In yesterday

(hum to "I believe in yesterday")













I Can See Clearly ...



I Can See Clearly Now-Jimmy Cliff

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me down
It's gonna be a bright bright bright bright sun shiny day
It's gonna be a bright bright bright bright sun shiny day

Oh yes I can make it now the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is that rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright bright bright bright sun shiny day

Look all around there's nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead there's nothing but blue skies

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Here is that rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright bright bright bright sun shiny day
It's gonna be a bright bright bright bright sun shiny day
Bri-ri-ri-ri-right
Bright bright bright bright sun shiny day
Oh yeah
It's gonna be a bright bright bright bright sun shiny day
It's gonna be a bright bright bright bright sun shiny day
It's gonna be a bright bright bright bright sun shiny day.












Trade Mark - Only ...


Only Love-Trademark

Two a.m. and the rain is falling
Here we are at the crossroads once again
You're telling me you're so confused
You can't make up your mind
Is this meant to be
You're asking me

But only love can say
Try again or walk away
But I believe for you and me
The sun will shine one day
So I'll just play my part
And pray you'll have a change of heart
But I can't make you see it through
That something only love can do

In your arms as the dawn is breaking
Face to face and a thousand miles apart
I've tried my best to make you see
There's hope beyond the pain
If we give enough, if we learn to trust

But only love can say
Try again or walk away
But I believe for you and me
The sun will shine one day
So I'll just play my part
And pray you'll have a change of heart
But I can't make you see it through
That something only love can do

I know if I could find the words
To touch you deep inside
You'd give my dream just one more chance
Don't let this be our last good-bye

But only love can say
Try again or walk away
But I believe for you and me
The sun will shine one day
So I'll just play my part
And pray you'll have a change of heart
But I can't make you see it through
That something only love can do
That something only love can do...

How Deep Is Your L...


How Deep Is Your Love-Bee Gees


And when you rise in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wonder far
From me I wanna feel you in my arms again
When you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love then you softly leave.
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be.
We belong to you and me.
I believe in you.
you know the door to my barest soul.
You're the light in my deepest darkest hour.
you're my saviour when I fall.
And you may not think that I care for you
When you know down inside that I really do
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be.
We belong to you and me
la la la . . .
When you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love then you softly leave.
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
how deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be.
We belong to you and me
How deep is your love
is your love










Dido - White Flag....


White Flag-Dido


(Part I)
I know you think that I shouldn't still love you
I'll tell you that
But if I didn't say it
Well, I'd still have felt it
Where's there the sense in that?

(Part 2)
I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

(Chorus)
Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

(Part 3)
I know I left too much mess and destruction to come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of it's over
Then I'm sure that that makes sense

(Chorus)
Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

(Part 4)
And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was then
Will be there still
I''ll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on

(Chorus)
Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

(Chorus)
Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

(Chorus)
I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be













Lionel Richie - S...


Suddenly-Lionel Richie


I used to think that love was just a farrie tale until that first hello, until that first smile
but if I had to do it all again, I woudn't change a thing
'cause this love is everlasting

Suddenly, life has new meaning to me
there's beauty up above, and things we never take notice of
you wake up and suddenly your in love

Girl your everything a man could want and more
a thousand words are not enough to say what I feel inside
holdin' hands as we walk along the shore
never felt like this before, now you're all im livin' for

Suddenly, life has new meaning to me
there's beauty up above and things we never take notice of
you wake up and suddenly your in love

Each day, I pray, this love affair would last forever (ooh, ooh)
suddenly, life has new meaning to me
there's beauty up above and things we never take notice of
you wake up suddenly, your in love

ooh, there's beauty up above, things we never take notice of
you wake up, and suddenly, your in love! (oooh, oooh, oooh)











Lionel Richie - Sa...


Say You Say Me-Lionel Richie


Say you, say me -
Say it for always
That's the way it should be
Say you, say me -
Say it together naturally!

I had a dream
I had an awesome dream
People in the park
Playing games in the dark
And what they played was a masquerade
>From behind the walls of doubt
A voice was crying out!

Say you, say me -
Say it for always
That's the way it should be
Say you, say me -
Say it together naturally!

As we go down life's lonesome highway
Seems the hardest thing to do
Is to find a friend or two
That helping hand, someone who understands
When you feel you've lost your way
You've got some one there to say -
I'll show you! Ooh, ooh!

Say you, say me -
Say it for always
That's the way it should be
Say you, say me -
Say it together naturally!

So you think you know the answer oh, no
Well, the whole worlds got'yya dancin'
That's right I'm telling you
It's time to start believin'
Oh, yes!
Believe in who you are
You are a shining star!

Say you, say me -
Say it for always
Oh, that's the way it should be
Say you, say me -
Say it together naturally!
Say it together naturally!









Lionel Richie & Di...


Endless-Love-Lionel-Ritchie


My love,
There's only you in my life
The only thing that's bright

My first love,
You're every breath that I take
You're every step I make

And I
(I-I-I-I-I)
I want to share
All my love with you
No one else will do...

And your eyes
Your eyes, your eyes
They tell me how much you care
Ooh yes, you will always be
My endless love

Two hearts,
Two hearts that beat as one
Our lives have just begun

Forever
(Ohhhhhh)
I'll hold you close in my arms
I can't resist your charms

And love
Oh, love
I'll be a fool
For you,
I'm sure
You know I don't mind
Oh, you know I don't mind

'Cause you,
You mean the world to me
Oh
I know
I know
I've found in you
My endless love

Oooh-woow
Boom, boom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, booom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom

Oooh, and love
Oh, love
I'll be that fool
For you,
I'm sure
You know I don't mind
Oh you know-
I don't mind

And, YES
You'll be the only one
'Cause NO one can deny
This love I have inside
And I'll give it all to you
My love
My love, my love
My endless love
