Michael Johnson - DIALOGUE Lyrics


This Night Won't Last Forever
By Bill LaBounty & R. Freeland

Everybody likes a celebration
Happy music and conversation
But I'd be lying if I said I didn't have the blues

In the corner there's a couple dancing
From the kitchen I can hear her laughing
Oh I wish I was celebrating, too

(Chorus)
I know this night won't last forever
I know the sun is gonna shine sometime
I need some hope for a bright tomorrow
To show this heart is gonna mend just fine

So pardon me for my disposition
Wish I didn't have to sit and listen
She's playing the same old songs on the stereo

She's been lying since the day I met her
I'd be better off to just forget her
Oh I would rather be lonesome all alone

Chorus

Such a ridiculous situation
Pretending there's nothing wrong
She's coming on with the invitation
I wonder who is taking her home

Chorus



Let This Be a Lesson To You
By Tom Snow

Isn't it nasty, isn't it sad
Don't it make you wonder
Don't it make you mad
Same old heartache, your best friend
Has come to visit once again

Your mistake was in the beginning
When you thought that she would last
But you weren't looking and you weren't listening
And when she left, you broke like glass

(Chorus)
Let this be a lesson to you
Take this message to your heart
Love is gonna slip right through ya
You'd better watch it from the start

You thought you had yourself a true love
You thought she was in love with you
But you found out she was like the devil
She stole your heart, she broke it too

But there's no telling who's on the level, no
And there's no way to know what's real
Just remember how it all happened
And be sure that you know just how you feel

Chorus



The Very First Time
By Randy Goodrum

What a change you've made in me
I can't get the chill off of my back, I can't keep my heart from going pitter-pat
It's a shame no one could ever see
They'll just have to feel it to believe it but I know that it's real

From the very first time I saw you
And I felt myself floating on air
For the very first time
I knew I was falling in love

Oh my hands keep trying to find me
'Cause when you look into my eyes, I can't seem to get a hold of myself
And my only alibi is
That I'm absolutely sure beyond a doubt this is real

From the very first time I met you, girl
And my heart sailed around the moon
For the very first time
I knew I was falling in love
For the very first time
I knew I was falling in love



Drops of Water
By Bill LaBounty & R. Freeland

There's a bird in my tree
Singin' sad autumn melodies
There's an old summer breeze
And it's blowin away

There's a cloud in my sky
There's a girl who's been on my mind
There's a tear in my eye
And I think it could rain

Drops of water, drops of water
Falling down around my feet
There's nothing but the rain in my life
Drops of water, drops of water
Falling down around my feet
There's nothing but the rain in my life

If a star falls tonight
Let it fall and with all your might
Make a wish
That there won't be any rain in your life

Drops of water, drops of water
Falling down around my feet
There's nothing but the rain in my life
Drops of water, drops of water
Falling down around my cheeks
There's nothing but the rain in my life



I'll Always Love You
By Tom Snow & Eric Kaz

Standing by my window, listening for your call
Guess I really miss you after all
Time won't let me keep these sad thoughts to myself
I'd just like to let you know, I wish I'd never let you go

And I'll always love you
Deep inside this heart of mine
I do love you
And I'll always need you
And if you ever change your mind
I'll still, I will love you

Wish you'd never left me but love's a mystery
You can break a heart so easily
The days and nights reveal how much I feel for you
Time has come for me to see how much your love has meant to me

And I'll always love you
And if you ever change your mind
I'll still, I will love you

Time like a river keeps on rollin' right on by
Nothing left for me to do
So I watch the river rise

And I'll always love you
Deep inside this heart of mine
I do love you
And I'll always need you
And if you ever change your mind
I'll still, I will
I'll still, I will love you



Doors
By Randy Goodrum & Brent Maher

Doors, why do there have to be doors
'Cause when you walked right out of yours and mine
It made me wonder why they are tears
Where is the end to all of these tears
And where's the face that used to cheer me up
Girl, it makes me wonder

Why does my heart just keep on beating
Why do my arms just keep on reaching
For someone who's no longer there

What can I say besides I'm sorry
What can I say to change you mind
What can I do to make tomorrow
Yours and mine

Chairs, why do there have be chairs
'Cause yours is empty now
There's no one there
It really makes me wonder

Why does my heart just keep on beating
Why do my arms just keep on reaching
For someone who's no longer there

What can I say besides I'm sorry
What can I say to change you mind

Why do I keep hoping for
A chance you'll walk back through the door
When my heart knows there's no hope anymore

So why do there have to be doors
Why do there have to been doors



Blackmail
By B. Fasman & L. Wendelken

Came here to see you yesterday
But the maid said you weren't home
So I came around today again
No, no, I didn't want to phone

It's rather a personal thing
You'll see what I mean
Your husband might be glad to know
Your past has not been clean

Blackmail, it's just a simple case of give and take
And it's blackmail, anyone can make a small mistake
And it's blackmail, it's just another case of you give and I take

Oh what a lovely house you have
It must have cost you quite a sum
With all your maids, with all your maids
And household help to get your cleaning done

All you need are some photographs to hang upon the wall
I have some here for you to see, I'm sure you'll buy them all

Blackmail, it's just a simple case of give and take
And it's blackmail, anyone can make a small mistake
And it's blackmail, it's just another case of you give and I take

Sorry for the trouble
I know you've things to do
Let's keep it short and sweet
I'm sure we'll meet again soon

Blackmail, it's just a simple case of give and take
And it's blackmail, anyone can make a small mistake
And it's blackmail, it's just another case of you give and I take

Blackmail, blackmail . . .



She Put the Sad in All His Songs
By Robert Byrne & Mac McAnally

He was a good time beer bar picker
Only until she came along
Gave up his women and his liquor
She put the sad in all his songs

Something about her made him sorry
She was homely in his eyes
She had him bound and hypnotized

She put the sad in all his songs
She put the blue in his guitar
She took what he had and the dreams are gone
She put the sad in all his songs

She was the rattlesnake that bit him
It was a blow from out behind
She thought the tear in his eye just might fit him
He was the last thing on her mind

She put the sad in all his songs
She put the blue in his guitar
She took what he had and the dreams are gone
She put the sad in all his songs



I Just Can't Say No to You
By Parker McGee & Steve Gibson

Just look at this mess that I'm in
For a gentle lover, you're a terrible friend
I swore I'd never get this close again
But I can't seem to stop myself from falling

You wanna come see me tonight
I gotta be strong, I know it's not right
I gotta hold on, put up some kind of fight
But I'm naming the time and the place again

(Chorus)
'Cause I just can't say no to you
Though I know I'd be better off to
But my heart won't admit that it's true
And I just can't say no to you

I guess I never understood
That something so wrong could seem so good
Would I give it up even if I could
Come call and let me fall with you

Chorus

Tell me when will it end
Break it off and then we're back again

Chorus


Dialogue
By Tom Snow & Patti Dahlstrom

Stranded in a waiting room, he turns to her, How do you do
I know the book you're reading. and I've always like his point of view
I'm flying out of here to somewhere I have been
Set out to find it years ago and I'm finally heading in

Have you been to France, I hear it's wonderful this time of year
Have you really seen the English countryside, do people ride
All I've ever seen is Houston, it's flat and rainy and rich
And California on my own and neither one quite fits

He has got the world to give and she is on her own
Together they can show each other what they cannot see alone

Cancel all your reservations, it's a now or never stand
Final call and off they go, leaving hand in hand

And he has got the world to give and she can bring him home
Together they can show each other what they cannot see alone
He has got the world to give and she an bring him home
Together they can show each other what they cannot see alone

He turns to her
