Soledad – West Life

If only you could see the tears in the world you left behind
If only you could heal my heart just one more time
Even when I close my eyes
There’s an image of your face
And once again I come to REALIZE
You’re a loss I can’t replace

Soledad
It’s a keeping for the lonely
Since the day that you were gone
Why did you leave me
Soledad
In my heart you were the only
And your memory lives on
Why did you leave me
Soledad

Walking down the streets of Nothingville
Where our love was young and free
Can’t believe just what an empty place
It has come to be
I would give my life away
If it could only be the same
Cause I conceal the voice inside of me
That is calling out your name

Soledad
It’s a keeping for the lonely
Since the day that you were gone
Why did you leave me
Soledad
In my heart you were the only
And your memory lives on
Why did you leave me
Soledad

Time will never change the things you’ve told me
After all we’re meant to be love will bring us back to you and me
If only you could see

Soledad
It’s a keeping for the lonely
Since the day that you were gone
Why did you leave me
Soledad
In my heart you were the only
And your memory lives on
Why did you leave me
Soledad

The Sun, Whose Rays Are All Ablaze – W. S. Gilbert – The Mikado

“The sun, whose rays Are all ablaze With ever-living glory,
Does not deny His majesty He scorns to tell a story!

He don’t exclaim, “I blush for shame, So kindly be indulgent.”
But, fierce and bold, In fiery gold, He glories all effulgent!
I mean to rule the earth, As he the sky
We really know our worth, The sun and I!
I mean to rule the earth, As he the sky
We really know our worth, The sun and I!

Observe his flame, That placid dame, The moon’s Celestial Highness;
There’s not a trace Upon her face Of diffidence or shyness:
She borrows light That, through the night, Mankind may all acclaim her!
And, truth to tell, She lights up well, So I, for one, don’t blame her!
Ah, pray make no mistake, We are not shy;
We’re very wide awake, The moon and I!
Ah, pray make no mistake, We are not shy;
We’re very wide awake, The moon and I!
