Lyrics

JUST LIKE KATHARINE HEPBURN

Music and Lyrics By PeterLink

Popcorn junkie
Hooked on the celluloid
Strung out on the front row
Of the motion picture show

Star fixated
Trapped in my fantasies
Scene after scene
Falling through the silver screen

In a past life
I got to be Bogey’s wife
An’ in my next life
I get to be Spencer’s wife

Oh just like Katharine Hepburn
Just like Katharine Hepburn
Slipping through the hole in my imagination
Right into the role of my latest incarnation
And I am Katharine Hepburn
Just like I always wanted to be
Just like Katharine Hepburn
Living in the soul of me

So elusive
Wrapped in her dignity
Known worldwide
But oh what a mystery

Head strong high class
Tough like a leather glove
Fearless in the face of
Life’s unforgotten love

In a past life
I got to be Carey’s wife
An’ in my last life
I want to be Spencer’s wife

Oh just like Katharine Hepburn
Just like Katharine Hepburn
Slipping through the hole in my imagination
Right into the role of my latest incarnation
And I am Katharine Hepburn
Just like I always wanted to be
Just like Katharine Hepburn

YOU KNOCK ME OFF MY FEET

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

You give it all you got
You make my life complete
You always take your best shot
You knock me off my feet

You took me under wing
You loved and nurtured me
You let my spirit sing
You knock me off my feet

In the way you bear me up
In the way you care for me
In the way you fill my cup
You’re always there
You’re always there for me

You clap me on the back
You rub my shoulders free
You fire up my brain
You knock me off my feet
You knock me off my feet
Proud to take you with me anywhere
Oh yeah

You knock me off my feet
Even in the toughest of times you’re there
Lifting me back up
With the way you care for me
And the way you help me be
All I can be

Yeah even in the toughest
Toughest of times
You’re there

You’re always comin’ through
You’re all I dreamed you’d be
I feel a hallelujah
Rise up inside of me

In the way you let me fly
In the way you set me free
You throw me to the sky
But you’re always there
You’re always there for me

You give it all you got
You make my life complete
You always take your best shot
You knock me off my feet

You knock me off my feet
And set my spirit free
An’ I’m so proud to take you with me anywhere

Oh yeah
You knock me off my feet
Even in the toughest of times you’re there
Lifting me back up
With the way you care for me

And when I go from here
I’ll always carry you with me
You make my life so clear
You give me all I need

The way you’ve treated me
Inspires me to go out
And knock down doors
You set my spirit free
You give it all to me
An’ I feel a hallelujah
Yes I feel a hallelujah

TURN AROUND TIME

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Oh
Oh time to turn it around
It’s a turn around time
Oh time to turn it around
It’s a turn around time

Feel it comin’
Yes it’s comin’
Feel it comin’
Yes it’s comin’ now

Now that the time is turning
Oh now that the passion’s burning
Oh now’s when the new beginning begins again

Feel it comin’ comin’ on

Now that we’re all through clappin’
It’s time to make things happen
Now is the time when we can win again

Back to the mountain top
Gonna get back
Back to that special feeling
Back to the place where we call home
Look out world we’re comin’ back

Time to turn it around
It’s a turn around time
Oh time to turn it around
It’s a turn around time

Gonna turn it around
Gonna step right up
An’ we’re comin’ on strong
Gonna cut it clear cut
On the cutting edge
Yeah the feeling is great
When we get back home
Gonna celebrate

Yes it all comes down
To a single stroke
Gonna rock it on out
Cause we’re goin’ for broke
Give it all you got
Gonna climb up higher
Yeah we’re gonna get hot
Cause the sky’s on fire

It’s a time to turn it around
Time again to turn it around
Turn around it’s time we turn
It’s a turn around time

It’s a time to turn it around
Time again to turn it around
Turn around it’s time we turn
It’s a turn around turn around time

Oh baby it’s a turn around time
It’s a turn around time
Now’s your turn
Let your passions burn
It’s a turn around turn around time

SOUTH AFRICA

Music and Lyrics By Peter Link
Zulu translations By Jimmy Mgwandi

We come from Soweto
We come from a great confusion
We come from the ghetto
We look to South Africa
We look to South Africa

We come from Zimbabwe
We come from the streets of
Harlem
We come from a new age
We know where the times have
gone
So we go where the lines are
drawn

We come from Botswanna
We come from a deep frustration
We come from Atlanta
We look to South Africa
We look to South Africa

Ah there I see in the great Serenghetti
The hope of our ancestors
Standing before me
I see in the ancient still mountains
And shining blue waters
The strength of Mandela
And still in the shanties of Cape Town

The voices of children sing
“power to the people” amandla awaytu
“power to the people” amandla awaytu
“power to the people” awaytu

We come from Uganda
We come from the mask of slavery
We come from South Central
We look to South Africa
We look to South Africa

And now we look to the slums of Pretoria
To show us the way
As the straw shows the way of the wind

For there in the mood of South Africa
Lies a measure of truth
The writing is there on the wall
Where it always has been

We come from the bread lines
We come from the blackboard jungles
We rise from the confines
Impelled by the hand of God
We look to South Africa

Ah there I see upon Kilamanjaro
The souls of our forefathers
Standing before us
The mem’ries of Medgar
And Malcolm and Martin
Run deep in our blood
The fires of apartheid
Still burn through the tears screaming
“power to the people” amandla awaytu
“power to the people” amandla awaytu
“power to the people” awaytu

We come from Soweto
We come from the Zulu nation
We come from the ghetto
We look to South Africa

oomzahntsi Africa
We look to South Africa
oomzahntsi Africa
We look to South Africa
oomzahntsi Africa
We look to South Africa
oomzahntsi Africa

Amandla awaytu
Amandla awaytu
Hiee hiee hiee
Ah su gah mahn!
Geen goo bah nee me
Nah gahn gah
Pahn dleh gko baba
Gee ah bongah weh baba
Gee nee geze
Oom zahn tsi Afreeca

We come from the bread lines
We come from the blackboard jungles
We rise from the confines
Impelled by the hand of God

We come from Soweto
We come from the Zulu nation
We come from the ghetto
We look to South Africa!

EVEN STILL

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Even still
In my heart you are
Holding on inside me
Even though this time we’re far apart

Even still
As the clouds roll by
I can feel you with me
I can feel you breathing here inside

After all
After all is said and done
You and I are simply one
Better still we’ve just begun
To make it right
Just begun to see

The light
Moving through it all
Shining here inside me
Lighting up my lonely moments
Calling to you

Still I’m really gonna miss you
While you’re gone
Tryin’ to make it through the lonelies
All night long
Still our love goes on inside me
Burning on
On and on

Make it deeper
Even still
Fill my very soul
Welling up inside me
Pouring into every corner
All through my life

Even still
I’m really gonna miss you
While you’re gone
Tryin’ to make it through the lonelies
All night long
Still our love goes on inside me
Burning on
On and on

BABY COME BACK

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

You
You were the moon
You were the miracle come true
You were the one that pulled me through

We were the perfect pair
We could go anywhere
And people would stop and stare
And wonder how there could be
Anyone as lucky as me

I was a fool
It was just much too good to be
It couldn’t be happening to me
Life wouldn’t work that way
I knew you would never stay
And oh how my heart would ache
I thought it could break in two
So I broke it all to pieces with you

But now I’m cryin’
Baby won’t you come back
Baby come back
I think I’ve had it
With this heart attack
I’ve learned my lesson
An’ I’m wantin’ you back
So baby baby
Come back to me

Oh baby come back
Baby come back
I once was lost
But now I’m back on the track
Forget the past oh baby
Please don’t look back
Oh baby baby
Come back to me
Babe I love you

Time
Time it can heal
Yes it can heal a broken heart
One that has torn itself apart
We could begin again
Then it would never end
Trust in me once again
We can be lovers friends
The miracle can happen again

But now I’m cryin’
Baby won’t you come back
Baby come back..

WASN’T IT GOOD FOR YOU

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Wasn’t it good for you?
(is the fire dying)
What are you going through?
(as the smoke turns)
Is it all over now?
(in the cool of moonlight)
Can we go on somehow?
(as you sleep on)

Deep down inside me I know
We’ve gone as far as we’ll go

And the moon grows a little colder now
As the fire begins to smolder down
And the love is like the fire now
Yes the love that was is like the fire now

Wasn’t it good for you?
(it’s a dying ember)
Where are we now, we two?
(it’s a smoke dream)
Where did it all go wrong?
(yes the spark has vanished)
We knew it would all along

And it’s gone
Nothing but a memory
Just like the fire burning down inside of me
And the love is like the fire now
Yes the love that was is like the fire now

And the love is like the fire now
(wasn’t it good for you?)
And the love is like the fire now
(where do we go from here?)
And the love is like the fire now
(am I alone again?)
And the love is like the fire now
(why do the feelings change?)

INDISCREET

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Two shadows in a doorway
Sweet temptation on a Tuesday night
Hot love in a hotel room
In the middle of the afternoon

Nasty rumors gonna haunt me
Secret rendezvous are all we’ve known
Feelin’ so guilty ‘bout the sneakin’ around
And the whispering on the phone

And I’m so tired of livin’ this way

Why must we be so indiscreet
We never face it but the truth is we cheat
The lies we fabricate
Tryin’ to keep our stories straight
Just don’t make sense

It’s just lies lies and more lies
Pounding hearts and hungry eyes
In all honesty
I don’t know what’s become of me
Livin’ like a tramp on the street
Why must we be so indiscreet
So indiscreet
So totally indiscreet

Trash talkin’ all around us
We carry on like there’s no one there
Everybody knows yeah and nobody tells
But the scandal is in the air
And I’m so tired of lovin’ this way

Why must we be so indiscreet
We never face it but the truth is we cheat
The lies we fabricate
Tryin’ to keep our stories straight
Just don’t make sense

It’s just lies lies and more lies
Pounding hearts and hungry eyes
In all honesty
I don’t know what’s become of me
Livin’ like a tramp on the street
Why must we be so indiscreet
So indiscreet
So totally indiscreet

SO IT BEGINS

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

And so it begins
Somewhere inside of me
Hallelujah
First deep within
Deep in the hush of me
Where only I can see

First it appears
Here where I never dreamed
Life would live again
And all of these years
You’ve been away from me
But here we go again

And so it begins
It begins
Again
This time around
Maybe the love
Won’t end
And so it begins
And it washes all the pain away
Never to end
So it seems
So it seems

Like a thief in the night
I feel it watching me
It comes to steal again
An’ it don’t seem right
Somehow it’s always me
Who loses in the end

But love has a way
Of healing the broken parts
Hallelujah
And if I obey
What’s in my heart of hearts
Then maybe there’s a way

And so it begins
It begins again
This time around
Maybe the love
Won’t end
And so it begins
And it washes all the pain away
Never to end
So it seems
So it seems

I WANNA STAY

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

It was all right
You could do what you wanted to do
I’d be all right
But I died inside
As you walked away
Through the long night
As I woke up again and again
In a cold sweat
With only the taste of regret
Where you used to be

I said all right
You could leave when you wanted to leave
I would get by
But I lied to hide
This broken heart
It was all wrong
I was making the fatal mistake
So I’m callin’
To fix up the hole in my life
Where you used to be

I’m gonna love you in such a special way
Don’t wanna lose you and all the plans we made
I won’t let this fire burn down and slip away
I wanna stay with you the rest of my life
I wanna stay stay stay

Well it’s all right
It’ll be what we want it to be
We’ll be all right
Cause the love we have
Will never die
In the dark night
When there’s finally nothing to say
And we move on
An’ never look back on the place
Where we used to be

I’m gonna love you in such a special way
Don’t wanna lose you and all the plans we made
I won’t let this fire burn down and slip away
I wanna stay with you the rest of my life
I wanna stay stay stay

THERE IS YOU

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

In that quiet place where life goes unspoken
In that sweet trace of stillness unbroken
In the heart of me
There is you

In the wake of all my frustrations
In the ruins of life’s expectations
When the fire dies
I’m glad there is you

After all the hard climbs
After all the deadlines
After all the years gone by

There’s still you
yeah Baby I’m home
God what a day
hey Baby what’s new
Oh by the way
I’m glad there is you

In the rain we sit and we wonder
As our lives they slip out from under us
And wash away
Still there’s you

After all the good wines
After all the laugh lines
After all the years gone by

When I fly too close to the candle
When my life seems too much to handle

There is you
There is you
There is you

TIME AND TIME AGAIN

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Through the years I’ve watched you all
Return and return again
Coming back to share once more
The memories with old friends
Through the good times old times sad times
The feeling never ends
Now there ain’t no doubt
Because the word is out
It’s all about friends

Friends
Here at last we’re together
So close
This feeling of friendship
We’re friends
Now we’re back an’ together
So sweet
We could do it again an’ again an’ again

It is a time to stop and be with us
This is a time when time stands still
And in the rush of all the memories
Well you can step right up and drink your fill
We’re serving

Friends
And we’re full to the rafters
(an’ it feels) so good
This feeling of friendship
Feel it all around you
We’re friends
An’ we’re lost in the laughter
(time and time again)

An’ I love to be here with you just because
Because you love to love for what the loving does
And we’ll all look back upon the way it was
Time and time again
We’ll remember our friendships
Time and time again

We’ll remember our friendships
Time and time again
We’ll remember our friendships
Time and time
And time and time
And time and time again

A time to tell the old old stories
A time to let it all hang out
A time to relive the old glories
A time to play and sing a time to shout
Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah for

Friends
Here at last we’re together
So right
This feeling of friendship
Feel it all around you
We’re friends
An’ it’s gettin’ better an’ better

An’ though it’s many years
That we’ve been apart
It was as though no time had passed
Right from the start
Oh yeah we all came back again
And touched the heart

Time and time again
We’ll remember our friendships
Time and time again

YOU’RE LEAVING ME

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

You’re leaving me
Wish you could stay but maybe it’s right
You’re leaving me
Though I agree I’m still very frightened
All our dreams have turned into ashes
Turned into dust
The fires have long been gone

You’re leaving me
Maybe just one more chance
Ah but you’re leaving me
Never your need and never your glance
Will touch my heart
Leaving me breathless
Leaving me weak
With all my walls torn down

Maybe I’ll go on
Maybe I’ll get by
Maybe I’ll sing my new song
Leaving all my past behind
Yes maybe it’s all right
Maybe the right time
Maybe I’ll find my answers
When at last you’re far away

And so you’re leaving me
Wish I could be the one who was leaving
Leaving you
Wish I believed in what we are doing
Time will tell
Maybe you’ll come back
Maybe you won’t
And maybe I’ll be free
Of your leaving me
