Track List

  • 1. Where Does My Heart Beat Now

    So much to believe in - We were lost in time
    Everything I needed I feel into your eyes
    Always thought of keepin - Your heart next to mine
    But now that seems so far away
    Don't know how love could leave without a trace
    Where do silent hearts go?

    Where does my heart beat now
    Where is the sound
    That only echoes through the night
    Where does my heart beat now
    I can't live without
    Without feeling it inside
    Where do all the lonely hearts go

    Candle in the water - Drifting helplessly
    Hiding from the thunder - Come and rescue me
    Driven by hunger - Of the endless dream
    I'm searching for the hand that I can hold
    I'm reaching for the arms that let me know
    Where do silent hearts go?

    I know that out there somewhere
    He waits for me
    Someone who's searching just like me
    Then one touch overcomes the silence
    Love still survives
    Two hearts needing one another
    Give me wings to fly
    I hear my heartbeat now
    I hear the sound
    Hear it echo through the night

    I feel my heart beat now
    Now that I've found
    The feeling lives inside
    I've got someone to give my heart to
    Feel it getting stronger and stronger and stronger
    Hearts are made to last
    Till the end of time



    (Robert White Johnson / Taylor Rhodes)

  • 2. Beauty and the Beast (duet with Peabo Bryson)

    Tale as old as time
    True as it can be
    Barely even friends
    Then somebody bends
    Unexpectedly

    Just a little change
    Small, to say the least
    Both a little scared
    Neither one prepared
    Beauty and the Beast

    Ever just the same
    Ever a surprise
    Ever as before
    Ever just as sure
    As the sun will rise

    Tale as old as time
    Tune as old as song
    Bittersweet and strange
    Finding you can change
    Learning you were wrong

    Certain as the sun
    Rising in the east
    Tale as old as time
    Song as old as rhyme
    Beauty and the Beast



    (Howard Ashman / Alan Menken)

  • 3. If You Asked Me To

    Used to be that I believed in something
    Used to be that I believed in love
    It's been a long time since I've had that feeling
    I could love someone
    I could trust someone
    I said I'd never let nobody near my heart again darlin'
    I said I'd never let nobody in

    But if you asked me to
    I just might change my mind
    And let you in my life, forever
    If you asked me to
    I just might give my heart
    And stay here in your arms forever
    If you asked me to
    If you asked me to

    Somehow ever since I've been around you
    Can't go back to being on my own
    Can't help feeling darling since
    I've found you
    That I've found my home
    That I'm finally home
    I said I'd never let nobody get too close to me darling
    I said I needed, needed to be free

    (But if you asked me to...)

    Ask me to, I will give my world to you baby
    I need you now
    Ask me to, I'll do anything for you baby, for you baby

    If you asked me to
    I'd let you in my life forever
    If you asked me to



    (Diane Warren)

  • 4. The Power of Love

    The whispers in the morning
    Of lovers sleeping tight
    Are rolling like thunder now
    As I look in your eyes

    I hold on to your body
    And feel each move you make
    Your voice is warm and tender
    A love that I could not forsake

    (first chorus)
    Cause I am your lady
    And you are my man
    Whenever you reach for me
    I’ll do all that I can

    Lost is how I’m feeling lying in your arms
    When the world outside’s too
    Much to take
    That all ends when I’m with you

    Even though there may be times
    It seems I’m far away
    Never wonder where I am
    ‘Cause I am always by your side

    (repeat first chorus)

    (second chorus)
    We’re heading for something
    Somewhere I’ve never been
    Sometimes I am frightened
    But I’m ready to learn
    Of the power of love

    The sound of your heart beating
    Made it clear
    Suddenly the feeling that I can’t go on
    Is light years away
    (repeat first chorus)

    (repeat second chorus)



    (Jennifer Rush / Gunther Mende / Candy Derouge / Mary Susan Applegate)

  • 5. My Love (Live Version)

    My love we have seen it all
    The endless confession
    The rise and fall

    As fragile as a child
    But lately I’m sorry
    I can’t hold a smile

    But I stand tall to get by
    No matter how hard
    I try to hide
    How did you know I’d take the time for you?
    Did you know that I could see you through?
    How did you know that I would play the part?
    I must have made it clear right from the start

    My love can you give me strength?
    Some how I forgot how to ease my pain
    I know I’m right where I belong
    But Somethin for nothin never proved me wrong

    But I stand tall to get by
    No matter how hard
    I try to hide
    How did you know I’d take the time for you?
    Did you know that I could see you through?
    How did you know that I would play the part?
    I must have made it clear right from the start

    I would share my whole life with you
    Would you do the same for me?
    I would give all I am to you
    Would you do the same for me?

    And I will stand tall to get by
    No matter how hard I try to hide
    You could you see?
    I could break
    Did you notice all my mistakes?
    There were times that I felt you read my mind
    How did you know I’d take the time for you?
    And did you know that I could see you through?
    Did you know that I would play that part?
    I know I made it clear right from the start….



    (Linda Perry)

  • 6. Because You Loved Me (Theme from 'Up Close and Personal')

    For all those times you stood by me
    For all the truth that you made me see
    For all the joy you brought to my life
    For all the wrong that you made right
    For every dream you made come true
    For all the love I found in you
    I’ll be forever thankful baby
    You’re the one who held me up
    Never let me fall
    You’re the one who saw me through through it all

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
    You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
    I’m everything I am
    Because you loved me

    You gave me wings and made me fly
    You touched my hand I could touch the sky
    I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
    You said no star was out of reach
    You stood by me and I stood tall
    I had your love I had it all
    I’m grateful for each day you gave me
    Maybe I don’t know that much
    But I know this much is true
    I was blessed because I was loved by you

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
    You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
    I’m everything I am
    Because you loved me

    You were always there for me
    The tender wind that carried me
    A light in the dark shining your love into my life
    You’ve been my inspiration
    Through the lies you were the truth
    My world is a better place because of you

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
    You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
    I’m everything I am
    Because you loved me



    (Diane Warren)

  • 7. The Power of the Dream (Taken from the opening Ceremony 1996 Summer Olympics)

    Deep within each heart
    There lies a magic spark
    That lights the fire of our imagination
    And since the dawn of man
    The strength of just “I can”
    Has brought together people of all nations

    There’s nothing ordinary
    In the living of each day
    There’s a special part
    Every one of us will play

    Feel the flame forever burn
    Teaching lessons we must learn
    To bring us closer to the power of the dream
    As the world gives us its best
    To stand apart from all the rest
    It is the power of the dream that brings us here

    Your mind will take you far
    The rest is just pure heart
    You’ll find your fate is all your own creation
    Every boy and girl
    As they come into this world
    They bring the gift of hope and inspiration

    Feel the flame forever burn
    Teaching lessons we must learn
    To bring us closer to the power of the dream
    The world unites in hope and peace
    We pray that it will always be
    It is the power of the dream that brings us here

    There’s so much strength in all of us
    Every woman child and man
    It’s the moment that you think you can’t
    You’ll discover that you can

    Feel the flame forever burn
    Teaching lessons we must learn
    To bring us closer to the power of the dream
    The world unites in hope and peace
    We pray that it will always be
    It is the power of the dream that brings us here

    Feel the flame forever burn
    Teaching lessons we must learn
    To bring us closer to the power of the dream
    The world unites in hope and peace
    We pray that it will always be
    It is the power of the dream that brings us here

    The power of the dream
    The faith in things unseen
    The courage to embrace your fear
    No matter where you are
    To reach for your own star
    To realize the power of the dream



    (David Foster / Babyface / L. Thompson)

  • 8. It's All Coming Back to Me

    There were nights when the wind was so cold
    That my body froze in bed
    If I just listened to it
    Right outside the window

    There were days when the sun was so cruel
    That all the tears turned to dust
    And I just knew my eyes were
    Drying up forever

    I finished crying in the instant that you left
    And I can’t remember where or when or how
    And I banished every memory you and I had ever made

    But when you touch me like this
    And you hold me like that
    I just have to admit
    That it’s all coming back to me
    When I touch you like this
    And I hold you like that
    It’s so hard to believe but
    It’s all coming back to me
    It’s all coming back, it’s all coming back to me now

    There were moments of gold
    And there were flashes of light
    There were things I’d never do again
    But then they’d always seemed right
    There were nights of endless pleasure
    It was more than any laws allow
    Baby Baby

    If I kiss you like this
    And if you whisper like that
    It was lost long ago
    But it’s all coming back to me
    If you want me like this
    And if you need me like that
    It was dead long ago
    But it’s all coming back to me
    It’s so hard to resist
    And it’s all coming back to me
    I can barely recall
    But it’s all coming back to me now
    But it’s all coming back

    There were those empty threats and hollow lies
    And whenever you tried to hurt me
    I just hurt you even worse
    And so much deeper

    There were hours that just went on for days
    When alone at last we’d count up all the chances
    That were lost to us forever

    But you were history with the slamming of the door
    And I made myself so strong again somehow
    And I never wasted any of my time on you since then

    But if I touch you like this
    And if you kiss me like that
    It was so long ago
    But it’s all coming back to me
    If you touch me like this
    And if I kiss you like that
    It was gone with the wind
    But it’s all coming back to me
    It’s all coming back, it’s all coming back to me now

    There were moments of gold
    And there were flashes of light
    There were things we’d never do again
    But then they’d always seemed right
    There were nights of endless pleasure
    It was more than all your laws allow
    Baby, Baby, Baby

    When you touch me like this
    And when you hold me like that
    It was gone with the wind
    But it’s all coming back to me
    When you see me like this
    And when I see you like that
    Then we see what we want to see
    All coming back to me
    The flesh and the fantasies
    All coming back to me
    I can barely recall
    But it’s all coming back to me now

    If you forgive me all this
    If I forgive you all that
    We forgive and forget
    And it’s all coming back to me
    When you see me like this
    And when I see you like that
    We see just what we want to see
    All coming back to me
    The flesh and the fantasies
    All coming back to me
    I can barely recall but it’s all coming back to me now

    (It’s all coming back to me now)
    And when you kiss me like this
    (It’s all coming back to me now)
    And when I touch you like that
    (It’s all coming back to me now)
    If you do it like this (It’s all coming back to me now)
    And if we…

  • 9. All By Myself

    When I was young
    I never needed anyone
    And making love was just for fun
    Those days are gone
    Livin’ alone
    I think of all the friends I’ve known
    When I dial the telephone
    Nobody’s home

    All by myself
    Don’t wanna be
    All by myself
    Anymore

    Hard to be sure
    Sometimes I feel so insecure
    And loves so distant and obscure
    Remains the cure

    All by myself
    Don’t wanna be
    All by myself
    Anymore
    All by myself
    Don’t wanna live
    All by myself
    Anymore

    When I was young
    I never needed anyone
    Making love was just for fun
    Those days are gone

    All by myself
    Don’t wanna be
    All by myself
    Anymore
    All by myself
    Don’t wanna live
    Oh
    Don’t wanna live
    By myself, by myself
    Anymore
    By myself
    Anymore
    Oh
    All by myself
    Don’t wanna live
    I never, never, never
    Needed anyone



    (Eric Carmen / Sergei Rachmaninoff)

  • 10. My Heart Will Go On

    Every night in my dreams
    I see you, I feel you,
    That is how I know you go on

    Far across the distance
    And spaces between us
    You have come to show you go on

    Near, far, wherever you are
    I believe that the heart does go on
    Once more you open the door
    And you’re here in my heart
    And my heart will go on and on

    Love can touch us one time
    And last for a lifetime
    And never let go till we’re one

    Love was when I loved you
    One true time I hold to
    In my life we’ll always go on

    Near, far, wherever you are
    I believe that the heart does go on
    Once more you open the door
    And you’re here in my heart
    And my heart will go on and on

    There is some love that will not go away

    You’re here, there’s nothing I fear,
    And I know that my heart will go on
    We’ll stay forever this way
    You are safe in my heart
    And my heart will go on and on



    (James Horner / Will Jennings)

  • 11. That;s the Way It Is

    I can read your mind
    And I know your story
    I see what you're going through (yeah)
    It's an uphill climb
    And I'm feeling sorry
    But I know it will come to you
    Don't surrender
    ‘Cause you can win
    In this thing called love
    When you want it the most
    There's no easy way out
    When you're ready to go
    And your heart's left in doubt
    Don't give up on your faith
    Love comes to those who believe it
    And that's the way it is
    When you question me
    For a simple answer
    I don't know what to say (no)
    But it's plain to see
    If you stick together
    You're gonna find the way
    So don't surrender
    ‘Cause you can win
    In this thing called love

    Chorus

    When life is empty
    With no tomorrow
    And loneliness starts to call
    Baby don't worry
    Forget your sorrow
    ‘Cause love's gonna conquer it all



    (M. Martin / K. Lundin / A. Carlsson)

  • 12. A New Day Has Come (Radio Remix)

    I was waiting for so long
    For a miracle to come
    Everyone told me to be strong
    Hold on and don’t shed a tear


    So through darkness and good times
    I knew I’d make it through
    And the world thought I had it all
    But I was waiting for you


    Hush now
    I see a light in the sky
    Oh it’s almost blinding me
    I can’t believe I’ve been touched by an angel
    With love
    Let the rain come down
    And wash away my tears
    Let it fill my soul
    And drown my fears
    Let it shatter the walls
    For a new sun
    A new day has come
    A new day has come
    Where it was dark now there is light
    Where there was pain, now there’s joy
    Where there was weakness, I found my strength
    All in the eyes of a boy


    Hush now
    I see a light in the sky
    Oh it’s almost blinding me
    I can’t believe I’ve been touched by an angel
    With love
    Let the rain come down
    And wash away my tears
    Let it fill my soul
    And drown my fears
    Let it shatter the walls
    For a new sun
    A new day has come
    A new day has come

    Chorus

  • 13. I'm Alive

    When you call on me
    When I hear you breathe
    I get wings to fly
    I feel that I’m alive

    When you look at me
    I can touch the sky
    I know that I’m alive

    When you bless
    The day
    I just drift away
    All my worries die
    I’m glad that I’m alive


    You’ve set my heart on fire
    Filled me with love
    Made me a woman on clouds above


    I couldn’t get much higher
    My spirit takes flight
    ‘Cause I am alive


    When you call on me
    When I hear you breathe
    I get wings to fly
    I feel that I’m alive

    When you reach for me
    Raising spirits high
    God knows that


    That I’ll be the one
    Standing by


    Through good and through trying times


    And it’s only begun
    I can’t wait for the rest of my life


    When you call on me
    When you reach for me
    I get wings to fly
    I feel that


    When you bless the day
    I just drift away
    All my worries die
    I know that I’m alive

    I get wings to fly God knows that I’m Alive

  • 14. I Drove All Night

    I had to escape, the city was sticky and cruel
    Maybe I should have called you first, but I was dying
    to get to you
    I was dreaming while I drove the long, straight road ahead…uh-huh, yeah

    Could taste your sweet kisses, your arms open wide
    This fever for you was just burning me up inside

    I drove all night to get to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night, crept in your room
    Woke you from your sleep to make love to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night

    What in this world keeps us from falling apart?
    No matter where I go I hear the beating of our one heart
    I think about you when the night is cold and dark…
    uh-huh, yeah
    No one can move me the way that you do
    Nothing erases this feeling between me and you

    I drove all night to get to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night, crept in your room
    Woke you from your sleep to make love to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night

    I taste your sweet kisses, your arms open wide
    This fever for you was just burning me up inside

    I drove all night to get to you
    Is that all right?

    I drove all night, crept in your room
    Woke you from your sleep to make love to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night

  • 15. Taking Chances

    Don’t know much about your life
    Don’t know much about your world but
    Don’t want to be alone tonight
    On this planet they call earth

    You don’t know about my past and
    I don’t have the future figured out
    And maybe this is going too fast
    And maybe it’s not meant to last,

    But what do you say to taking chances
    What do you say to jumping off the edge
    Never knowing if there’s solid ground below
    Or a hand to hold
    Or hell to pay

    What do you say
    What do you say

    I just wanna start again
    Maybe you could show me how to try
    Maybe you could take me in
    Somewhere underneath your skin

    What do you say to taking chances
    What do you say to jumping off the edge
    Never knowing if there’s solid ground below
    Or a hand to hold
    Or hell to pay

    What do you say
    What do you say

    And I’ve had my heart beaten down
    But I always come back for more, yeah
    There’s nothing like love to pull you up
    When you’re lying down on the floor there,
    So talk to me, talk to me like lovers do
    Yeah walk with me, walk with me like lovers do
    Like lovers do

    What do you say to taking chances
    What do you say to jumping off the edge
    Never knowing if there’s solid ground below
    Or a hand to hold
    Or hell to pay

    What do you say
    What do you say

    Don’t know much about your life
    Don’t know much about your world

  • 16. There Comes a Time

    Let me be your soldier
    I’ll stand up for you
    When your world comes crashing down
    I’ll be the one to hold you
    Let me be your soldier
    I’ll fight the fight for you
    When you’re up against the wall
    I will pull you through

    There comes a time
    In everybody’s life
    When alone is not enough
    To make things right
    There comes a time
    When we need to ask for help
    When you’re lost and just not strong enough
    To make it through the night
    When your love is on the frontline…

    Let me be your soldier
    I’ll take the pain for you
    When no one else is on your side
    I’ll defend you
    Let me be your soldier
    I’ll carry the cross for you
    When you’re down and on your knees
    I’ll protect you

    There comes a time
    In everybody’s life
    When alone is not enough
    To make things right
    There comes a time
    When we need to ask for help
    When we’re lost and just not strong enough
    To make it through the night
    When your love is on the frontline…
    Let me be your soldier

    There comes a time
    In everybody’s life
    When alone is not enough
    To make things right
    There comes a time
    When we need to ask for help
    When we’re lost and just not strong enough
    To make it through the night
    When your love is on the frontline
    When your love is on the frontline
    When your love is on the frontline…

    Let me be your soldier, I’ll die for you…
