The Hearts of Chicago

You’re The Inspiration

(P. Cetera/D. Foster)
Arranged by Peter Cetera and David Foster
Strings Arranged by Jeremy Lubbock

You know our love was meant to be
The kind of love that lasts forever
And I need you here with me
From tonight until the end of time

You should know, everywhere I go
You're always on my mind, in my heart
In my soul

Chorus:
You're the meaning in my life
You're the inspiration
You bring feeling to my life
You're the inspiration
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin'
No one needs you more than I need you

And I know, yes I know that it's plain to see
We're so in love when we're together
And I know that I need you here with me
From tonight until the end of time

You should know, everywhere I go
Always on my mind, in my heart
In my soul

Chorus

 - Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 If You Leave Me Now

Words and music by Peter Cetera
Lead vocal by Peter Cetera

If you leave me now, you'll take away the biggest part of me
No baby please don't go
If you leave me now, you'll take away the very heart of me
No baby please don't go

A love like ours is love that's hard tofind
How could we let it slip away
We've come too far to leave it all behind
How could we end it all this way
When tomorrow comes we'll both regret
Things we said today

Cause i need you more than you'll ever know

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 Make Me Smile

- J. Pankow-

Children play in the park, they don't know
I'm alone in the dark, even though
Time and time again I see your face smiling inside

I'm so happy
That you love me
Life is lovely
When you're near me
Tell me you will stay
Make me smile

Living life is just a game so they say
All the games we used to play fade away
We may now enjoy the dreams we shared so long ago

Oh my darling, got to have you. Feel the magic when I hold you
Cry sweet tears of joy, touch the sky

Now I need you more than ever. No more crying - we're together
Tell me you will stay. Make me smile

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

Hard Habit To Break

(S. Kipner/J. Parker)
Arranged by David Foster
Strings Arranged by Jeremy Lubbock

I guess I thought you'd be here forever
Another illusion I chose to create
You don't know what ya got until it's gone
And I found out just a little too late

I was acting as if you were lucky to have me
Doin' you a favor I hardly knew you were there
But then you were gone and it was all wrong
Had no idea how much I cared

Chorus:
Now being without you
Takes a lot of getting used to
Should learn to live with it
But I don't want to
Living without you
Is all a big mistake
Instead of getting easier
It's the hardest thing to take
I'm addicted to ya babe
You're a hard habit to break

You found someone else you had every reason
You know I can't blame you for runnin' to him
Two people together but living alone
I was spreading my love too thin

After all of these years
I'm still tryin' to shake it
Doin' much better they say that it just takes time
But deep in the night it's an endless flight
I can't get ya out of my mind

Chorus

2nd Chorus:
Being without you
Takes a lot of getting used to
Should learn to live with it
I don't want to
Being without you
Is all a big mistake
Instead of getting any easier
It's the hardest thing to take
I'm addicted to you
You're a hard habit to break

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 Saturday in the Park

Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing Italian songs ?

Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For Saturday

Saturday in the park
You'd think it was the Fourth of July
Saturday in the park
You'd think it was the Fourth of July
People talking, really smiling
A man playing guitar
Singing for us all
Will you help him change the world
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For today

Slow motion riders fly the colours of the day
A bronze man still can tell stories his own way
listen children all is not lost
all is not lost

Funny days in the park
Every day's the Fourth of July
Funny days in the park
Every day's the Fourth of July
People reaching, people touching
A real celebration
Waiting for us all
If we want it, really want it
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For the day

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 Wishing You Were Here

Sleepless hours and dreamless nights and far aways
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here
Heaven knows and lord it shows when I'm away
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here

Same old show in a different town on another day
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here
Even though you're far away, you're on my mind
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here

And I'd like to change my life, and you know I would
Just to be with you tonight, baby, if I could
But I've got my job to do, and I do it well,
Change my life) So I guess that's how it is.

Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here

On the road it's a heavy load, but I'll be by
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here
Pay the price, make a sacrifice, and still I'll try
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 The Only One

What's been goin' on
I've been tryin' to get through to you
Has it really been that long?
I've been thinkin' about you baby
And the way it used to be
There's so many things I want to say
But will the words come out all wrong?
After all that's said and done
You're still the only one

You're the only one for me
I'm the only one for you
Baby can't you see
You're still the only one
Each and every night I pray
Hopin' there'll come a day
Baby you believe
You're still the only one

Got to find a way
To get back inside your heart again
If I let you walk away
I'd be dyin' without you baby
So I just keep holdin' on
Don't you know we were meant to be
But then I knew it all along
After all that we've been through
You're still the only one

You're the only one for me
I'm the only one for you
Baby can't you see
You're still the only one
Each and every night I pray
Hopin' there'll come a day
Baby you believe
You're still the only one

And the fire of our love
Keeps me runnin' back to you
And no matter where you are
I will never be that far
Away

You're the only one for me
I'm the only one for you
Baby can't you see
You're still the only one
Each and every night I pray
Hopin' there'll come a day
Baby you believe
You're still the only one
Ain't no need to wonder why
I'll love you 'till the day I die
Baby I believe
You're still the only one

You're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one for me sweet baby

You're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one for me sweet darlin'
(repeats)

When times are rough and hard
With you is where I want to be, yeah
Aw yeah

When I am down and out, oh yeah
With you is where I'll be
Oh yeah

Yeah yeah baby
The only one for me
Me
Me, yeah

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 Colour My World

As time goes on,
I realize
Just what you mean
To me
And now,
Now that you're near,
Promise your love
That I've waited to share
And dreams
Of our moments together
Color my world with hope of loving you

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 Look Away

-Diane Warren-

When you called me up this morning,
told me 'bout the new love you found,
I'm said "I'm happy for you,
I'm really happy for you."
Found someone else,
I guess I won't be coming 'round.
I guess it's over, baby;
it's really over, baby, whoa...
And from what you said
I know you've gotten over me;
it'll never be the way it used to be.
So if it's gotta be this way,
don't worry, baby, I can take the news okay.

But if you see me walking by,
and the tears are in my eyes,
look away, baby, look away.
If we meet on the streets someday,
and I don't know what to say,
look away, baby, look away.
Don't look at me;
I don't want you to see me this way.

When we both agreed as lovers,
we were better off as friends,
that's how it had to be,
yeah, that's how it had to be.
I tell you I'm fine
but sometimes I just pretend;
wish you were holding me,
wish you were still holding me, whoa...
I just never thought,
that I would be replaced so soon;
I wasn't prepared to hear those words from you.
I know I wanted to be free;
yeah, baby, this is how we wanted it to be.

But if you see me waling by,
and the tears are in my eyes,
look away, baby, look away.
If we meet on the streets someday,
and I don't know what to say,
look away, baby, look away.
Don't look at me;
I don't want you to see me this way.

Repeat chorus 2x

When you called me up this morning,
told me 'bout the new love you found.
I said "I'm happy for you,
I'm really happy for you."

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 Here In My Heart

I keep on thinkin'
I should be free
This time just leave it alone

With seventeen reasons
Not to believe
Nothin' goes everybody knows like you always want it to be

But here in my heart
There's a dream that's unbroken
And it gets in my way
But it won't be denied

But here in my heart
The door is still open
Waiting for you
To walk in to my life

What I've been feelin'
I can't explain
Lost in the blues of your eyes

And I'm fallin' so hard
Just like the rain
There comes a time when you cross a line and you've got to believe

'Cause here in my heart
There's a dream that's unbroken
And it gets in my way
But it won't be denied

And here in my heart
The door is still open
Waiting for you
To walk in to my life

I know
I may never sleep again
Till I see you
Oh baby I know

I know
Life is too short and I can't pretend
It's not about you
Can't do without you

But here in my heart
There's a dream that's unbroken
And it gets in my way
But it won't be denied

Here in my heart
The door is still open
Waiting for you
To walk in to my life

There's a dream that's unbroken
It gets in my way
But it won't be denied

Here in my heart
The door is still open
Waiting for you
To walk in to my life

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

As I was walking down the street one day
A man came up to me and asked me what the time was that was
on my watch, yeah
And I said
Does anybody really know what time it is
I don't
Does anybody really care
care
If so I can't imagine why
about time
We've all got time enough to cry
Oh no, no

And I was walking down the street one day
A pretty lady looked at me and said her diamond watch had
stopped cold dead
And I said
Does anybody really know what time it is
I don't
Does anybody really care
care
If so I can't imagine why
about time
We've all got time enough to cry
Oh no, no

And I was walking down the street one day
Being pushed and shoved by people trying to beat the clock,
oh, so I just don't know,
I just don't know
And I said, yes I said

Background Vocal:
People runnin' everywhere
Don't know the way to go
Don't know where I am
Can't see past the next step
Don't have to think past the last mile
Have no time to look around
Just run around, run around and think why

Does anybody really know what time it is
I don't
Does anybody really care
care
If so I can't imagine why
about time
We've all got time enough to die
Oh no, no

-Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop-

 Will You Still Love Me

-David Foster, tom Keane and Richard Baskin-

Take me as I am
Put your hand in mine now and forever
Darling here I stand, stand before you now
Deep inside I always knew
It was you, you and me
Two hearts drawn together bound by destiny
It was you and you for me
Every road leads to your door
Every step I take forever more

CHORUS:
Just say you'll love me for the rest of your life
I gotta lot of love and I don't want to let go
Will you still love me for the rest of my life?
'Cause I can't go on
No, I can't go on
I can't go on
If I'm on my own

Take me as I am
Put your heart in mine, stay with me forever
'Cause I am just a man who never understood
I never had a thing to prove
Till there was you
You and me
Then it all came clear so suddenly
How close to you that I wanna be

CHORUS

Bridge:
Do you believe a love could run so stong?
Do you believe a love could pass you by?
There was no special one for me
I was the lovely one, you see
But then my heart lost all control
Now you're all that I know

CHORUS

- Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop -

 Beginnings

When I'm with you, it doesn't matter where we are,
Or what we're doing. I'm with you, that's all that matters.
Time passes much too quickly when we're together laughing.
I wish I could sing it to you, oh no,
I wish I could sing it to you.
Mostly I'm silent.
Never think about words to say.

When I kiss you, I feel a thousand different feelings.
The color of chills all over my body.
And when I feel them, I quickly try to decide which one
I should try to put into words, oh no,
Try to put into words.
Mostly I'm silent.

Only the beginning of what I want to feel forever.
Only the beginning. Only just the start.
I've got to get you into my life.
Got to get you next to me.
Only the beginning. Only just the start.

- Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop -

Hard To Say I'm Sorry

- Peter Cetera and David Foster -

"Everybody needs a little time away," I heard her say, "from each other."
"Even lover's need a holiday far away from each other."
Hold me now. It's hard for me to say I'm sorry. I just want you to stay.

After all that we've been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.
And after all that's been said and done,
You're just the part of me I can't let go.

Couldn't stand to be kept away just for the day from your body.
Wouldn't wanna be swept away, far away from the one that I love.
Hold me now. It's hard for me to say I'm sorry. I just want you to know.
Hold me now. I really want to tell you I'm sorry. I could never let you go.

After all that we've been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.
And after all that's been said and done,
You're just the part of me I can't let go.

After all that we've been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.

You're gonna be the lucky one.

- Chommar Ipiet Ira Hani Apop -
