Michael Johnson - WINGS Lyrics


Gotta Learn To Love Without You
By Kent Robbins & Michael Johnson

Gotta hold my pillow real tight till the midnight hour ends
Gotta lean on a friend sometime when your memories begin
Gotta live without, forget about your love and then

I gotta learn to love without you
Get the feeling back and my heart on the track of love without you
It'll take a little time to mend
Gotta learn to love without you, somebody teach me how to
And lift me up so I can fall again

Don't need any telephone call when you think you've changed your mind
Don't tempt me again, I've given in one too many times
Gotta grow back strong, leave you a long, long way behind

I gotta learn to love without you
Get the feeling back and my heart on the track of love without you
It'll take a little time to mend
Gotta learn to love without you, someone teach me how to
Lift me up so I can fall again



It's Only Over For You
By Mike Reid & Rory Bourke

Somehow I knew I'd see you tonight
Here at our old rendezvous
I'm at the mercy of old memories
And you've got your somebody new

You may wonder why I keep coming by
With this heart so broken in two
Any fool could see with one look at me
It's only over for you

It's only over for you
Oh I'm not the one who found somebody new
So go on believing we're through
Oh it may be over
But it's only over for you

As I watch you falling in love
You can't see me falling apart
And even though you hurt me I know
I still love you with all of my heart

But I won't hide my face in a stranger's embrace
When we dance into each other's view
So don't be surprised at these tears in my eyes
Cause it's only over for you

It's only over for you
Oh I'm not the one who found somebody new
So go on believing we're through
Oh it may be over
But it's only over for you

You can go on believing we're through
Oh it may be over
But it's only over for you



That's What Your Love Does To Me
By Chick Rains & Bill Caswell

I used to love free and easy
Hitting the road any time I pleased
You came and turned me around
Now all I think about is settling down

(Chorus)
That's what your love does to me, that's what your love does to me
Made me wonder what I ever saw in being free
I'm used to running but my heart says stay
This time there ain't no running away
That's what your love does to me, that's what your love does to me

Out every night when the sun goes down
Neon lights and the juke box sound
I used to be first in line now
It's the last thing on my mind

Chorus

Every heart gets the chance to be untrue
There'll come a time when mine will, too
Well don't you worry when it comes my time
My heart's gonna walk the line

Chorus



Give Me Wings
By Rhonda Fleming & Don Schlitz

He asked her, what gifts can I bring you
To prove that my love for you is true
I want to make you mine forever
There's nothing on this earth I would not do
She said, anything I've wanted
You have given willingly
So now there's only one more thing I need

If you love me, give me wings
Don't be afraid if I fly
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
If you love me, give me wings

He walked over to the window
Silently stared into space
He said, I just want to protect you
'Cause this world is a dangerous place
She put her arms around him
She said, I know you mean well
But there are lessons I must learn for myself

If you love me, give me wings
Don't be afraid if I fly
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
You can trust me, give me wings

She said, up above the clouds, you can see forever
And I know you and I can learn to fly together

If you love me, give me wings
Don't be afraid if I fly
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
You can trust me, give me wings

If you really love me
Give me wings



Hangin' On
By Mickey Jupp

Everybody gots a problem, everybody gets low
Everybody got trouble, leastwise everybody I know
But at times like these when I'm on my knees and everything goes wrong
I turn to my baby and things won't stay wrong for long, no no

(Chorus)
When your heart is down and your brain's in a muddle
You can't beat a little kiss and a cuddle
Everything going to be all right
I'll be hangin' on to my baby tonight
Hangin' on tonight

We come into this world, the very first thing we learn
Is everybody needs someone somewhere to turn
So come do what I do if only because
A little bit of lovin' makes everything a little bit better than it was

Chorus

I don't have much money and I don't really care
No one needs no money when you got some love to spare
Well there ain't no bank in the whole wide world gonna stop this spending spree
When I'm hangin' on to my baby and she's hangin' on to me

Chorus



Ponies
By Jeffrey Bullock

Somewhere out on the prairie
Is the greatest cowboy that's ever been
And when he lays his hands upon the ponies
They shudder with an understanding skin

And he says "Ponies, now ponies, don't you worry
I have not come to steal your fire away
I want to fly with you across the sunrise
Discover what begins each shining day"

When the storm clouds in the west are quickly gathering
The ponies they run wildly before it rains
You'll see their sleek dark bodies brightly gleaming
You'll know the fire is flying through their brains

And he says "Ponies, now ponies, don't you worry
I have not come to steal your fire away
I want to fly with you across the sunrise
Discover what begins each shining day"



Magic Time
By Jamie O'Hara & Kevin Welch

He pulls into her driveway
His headlights flash across her bedroom wall
He slips in through the screen door
And he glides like a shadow down the hall
The fan upon the ceiling whirls around
He moves his hands in front of her
And her black hair falls down

(Chorus)
Well it's magic time, it's magic time, the couple takes the stage
He lights the candles with his eyes, and music starts to play
Slowly they dance and then they read each other's minds
Ooh it's magic time, ooh it's magic time

Right outside her window
A night owl screams and flies off towards the moon
She can feel his heartbeat
And he can almost taste her sweet perfume
The wind out in the blackjack trees gently blows
He reaches up into thin air and pulls her down a rose

Chorus

The silver moon is sinking and it shines like a spotlight on her bed
There a lonely lady lies awake and shakes her pretty hair
For three nights running, how strange the dream has been
She blows out the candles to sleep and dream again

Chorus



True Love
By Chick Rains & Gary Nicholson

True love takes a long time to make
Losing it causes a whole lot of heartache
True love ain't easy to find
Sometimes you don't know you got it
Till you leave it behind

There's a feeling I get when I think about you
Realize what we had was true
I could've saved it but I was too blind
And I know I might search a lifetime through
And never find another love like you
It was true love and that's a hard love to find

Cause I know true love takes a long time to make
Losing it causes a whole lot of heartache
True love ain't easy to find
Sometimes you don't know you got it
Till you leave it behind

Well I've known love burning hot
Love turning cold
Until I lost it, I didn't know

True love takes a long time to make
Losing it causes a whole lot of heartache
True love ain't easy to find
Sometimes you don't know you got it
Till you leave it behind



Cool Me In the River of Love
By Dennis Linde

(Chorus)
Cool me in the river of love, cool me in the river of love
Cool me in the river of love, lay me down in the water
Lay me down in the water

It seems everything's gone wrong today
Twenty four hours just thrown away
Broke my back, still the bills' ain't paid
Oh baby take my hand

Chorus

When I feel low like I do right now
You always lift me up somehow
You lay your hands on my fevered brow
And my troubles all flow away

Chorus

Well that river of love is sweet as wine
Healing my body while it soothes my mind
It makes this whole world seem to shine
Everything's new again

Chorus



The Moon is Still Over Her Shoulder
By Hugh Prestwood

She is fixed in his mind like the picture
He's kept in his wallet for years
And the image has never been tarnished
By the blood, sweat and tears
And to him it appears

That the moon is still over her shoulder
And the ribbon is still in her hair
And he can still see her dancing
And music is still in the air

Sometimes he finds it amazing
That all of his children are wed
When their mother is still turning eighteen
And turning his head
She still turns his head

And the moon is still over her shoulder
And the stars are still falling above
And she never gets one minute older
And he is still falling in love
