This Is My Night
Written by Mic Murphy and David Frank


(Tonight, ah, tonight)

I'm puttin' on my makeup
It's time to wake up
The owners of the night are calling me
I'm ready and I'm willing
To pull out the happy feeling
Something special's in the air for me

The night is mine
I'm gonna keep it just right
An angel in my pocket, right?
Feels so right
This mirror's tellin' no lie
Gonna let this magic shine

CHORUS:
This is my night (tonight)
I'm gonna do it just right
I'm gonna let this magic shine
This is my night (tonight)
I'm gonna do it just right
I'm gonna let this magic shine

I feel like winning
i don't know the reason
Something telling me to let it ride
Got me rockin' and reeling
I don't know what the deal is
Something special I just can't describe

The night is mine
I'm gonna keep it just right
On my way to paradise
Feels so fine
Feels just like the first time
Gonna gonna let this magic shine

CHORUS

This is my night, this is my night, this is my night
The night is young, let it shine (come out)
This is, this is my night, this, this is my night!
This is my my my my my night, my my my...

This feels so right
This mirror's tellin' no lie
I'm gonna let this magic shine
Let it shine, let it shine

This is my night (tonight)
I'm gonna do it just right
I'm gonna let this magic shine (let it shine)
This is my night (my night)
I'm gonna do it just right
I'm gonna let this magic shine (let it shine)
This is my night (tonight)
I'm gonna do it just right
I'm gonna let this magic shine (let it shine, oh)
My night, let it shine This is my night (tonight)
I'm gonna do it just right
I'm gonna let this magic shine (let it shine on me, shine on me)

Stronger Than Before
Written by Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Bruce Roberts

If you don't believe what I say
You won't believe I'm not that way
And I never meant to turn the hurt around
I would be a fool to lose the love I'd found
And if you take me back, I'll let you know

I'll be stronger than before, I will love you even more
Oh, I'll take you back, if you come back
I'll take you anywhere you ever want to be
You're the light inside of me
Oh, I'll take you back, if you come back to me

If you heard the whole thing before
Then once again, I'll tell you more
I would be a fool to ever let you go
Oh I had to go away to finally know
How much I need you back, I need your love

I'll be stronger than before, I will love you even more
Oh, I'll take you back, if you come back
I'll take you anywhere you ever want to be
You're the light inside of me
Oh, I'll take you back, if you come back
I'll take you anywhere you ever want to be
You're the light inside of me
Oh, I'll take you back, if you come back to me
Come back to me, come back to me
I'll take you back, if you come back to me
Come back to me

If you come back to me
Come back to me, come back to me
I'll take you back
If you come back to me, come back to me

(Stronger, stronger) Stronger than before
I will love you even more
Oh, I'll take you back, if you come back
I'll take you anywhere you ever want to be (Stronger, stronger)
You're the light inside of me
Oh, I'll take you back if you come back to me,
Come back to me, come back to me

(Stronger, yeah) I'll be stronger than before,
I will love you even more
Oh, I'll take you back, if you come back
I'll take you anywhere you ever want to be (Stronger, stronger)
By the light inside of me
Oh, I'll take you back if you come back to me,
Come back to me, come back to me

(Stronger, yeah) I'll be stronger than before,
I will love you even more
Oh, I'll take you back, if you come back
I'll take you anywhere you ever want to be (oh yeah, yeah)
You're the light inside of me
Oh, I'll take you back if you come back to me,
Come back to me, come back to me

My Love Is Alive
Written by Gary Wright

Well I think it's time to get ready
To realize just what I found
I have lived unaware of what I am
It's all clear to me now, that

My heart is on fire
My soul's like a wheel that's turning
My love is alive, my love is alive

Well there's something inside
That's makin' me crazy
Tryin' to keep it together
Cause what I'm saying, I have been saving
And now could be forever

My love is alive, my heart's on fire
Soul is like a wheel, like a hot wire
My love is alive, my heart's on fire
Soul's like a wheel, like a hot wire

There's a mirror inside my mind
Reflectin' the light that shines on me
Hold on to the feeling
Let it be, let it grow
My heart is on fire, my love is alive

Fire in my heart, soul's like a wheel that's turning
My love is alive...

Eye To Eye
Written by Michael Sembello, John Sembello, Dan Sembello and Don Freeman

Iím in the mood to end these empty days
Ever when I Ė you stare down Ė romancin'
Everytime I see your face Ė hopeless - colder than ice
With no more flame
I think our love has reached the part of no return
Itís so sad when lovers donít see

Eye to eye Ė a look says everything
Eye to eye Ė so close, so far away

That distant look is all youíve got to say
Everytime I try to talk to you
Every word is lost in space
Drifting further apart in every way
Weíve come to be the ones that love is out of sight
Itís so clear that we just donít see

Eye to eye Ė a look says everything
Eye to eye Ė so close, so far away

Thereís no reason for this heartache
To go on and on, when the feelingís gone
I can say now, that itís to late
To try and change your mind

Eye to eye Ė a look says everything
Eye to eye Ė so close, so far away

La Flamme
Written by Philippe Saisse, Rhoda Roberts and Chaka Khan

(Back to me)

Lovers walk off on each other
Brothers go their separate ways
You wake up somewhere in the middle
Wonderin' why nobody stays

You are a child of wild desires
When you're innocence leaves, yeah
Why you wanna play with fire
Here I am, here I am

J' m'appel La Flamme (Áŗ c'est mon nom)
Set off your alarm (ooh se coir)
Let me take you home
Bet'cha I'll take care of everything
Tonight
(What, what, what, what'cha gonna do for me)

You thought her love was too good
But she's the reason for your pain
But hey I'm gonna make you happy
I'll never let you hurt again
Almost killed you with her honesty
Back when you innocently stayed
Why you wanna play with fire
Here I am, here I am

J' m'appel La Flamme (Áŗ c'est mon nom)
Set off your alarm (ooh se coir)
Let me take you home
Bet'cha I'll take care of everything
(Ain't, ain't, ain't nobody) Tonight

J' m'appel La Flamme (Áŗ c'est mon nom)
Oh, set off your alarm (ooh se coir)
Let me take you home
Bet'cha I'll take care of everything
Tonight

Tonight, make it happen for real
Make your fantasies happy, completely
Come stay with me, stay with me

J' m'appel La Flamme (Áŗ c'est mon nom)
Set off your alarm (ooh se coir)
Let me take you home
Bet'cha I'll take care of everything
Bet'cha I'll take care of everything
Tonight

J' m'appel La Flamme (Áŗ c'est mon nom)
Set off your alarm (ooh se coir)
Won't you take me home
Bet'cha I'll take care of everything tonight
J' m'appel La Flamme (Áŗ c'est mon nom)
My nomme is Chaka Khan
Won't you take me home
Bet'cha I'll, I'll take care of everything

CHORUS

Hold Her
Written by David "Hawk" Wolinski and James Newton Howard

You gotta hold her now
Never leave her
Never let her go

You think you lost her number but youíve only lost a little bit of time
Sheís waiting just to see you boy, a continental girl so fine
Mirrors on the ceiling make it hard for you to sleep at night
The opportunity is now
You know you got to do whatís right

Bridge:
So, you take yourself down to her
Before it gets too late
Thereís no need to telephone
Cause this can hardly wait
The meaning of a moment has never been so strong
A girl like this, a night like this
Itís right where you belong

Chorus:
You gotta hold her now
Never leave her
Tell her how
Youíre gonna love her, squeeze her
Hold her now
Never leave her again
Never leave her again
(donít you go)

She found you in a restaurant when you were with another girl
Remember?
You tried to tell her how it was just to live in a harmless world
Remember how she looked at you
Remember how she stole your eyes
And now youíre all alone at night
Runniní out of alibis

Bridge

Chorus

Youíve got to take your time
Take your time
Take your time whenever you see her
Save her every moment you can

With your every wonderful feeling
Let her know that you will be her man
Open arms are never too open
Loviní hearts are never too free

Let the circle never be broken
Let it be what you want it to be

Chorus

Hold her now
Hold her now
Never let her go

Through The Fire
Written by David Foster, Tom Keane and Cynthia Weil

I look in your eyes and I can see
We've loved so dangerously
You're not trusting your heart to anyone
You tell me you're gonna play it smart
We're through before we start
But I believe that we've only just begun

When it's this good, there's no saying no
I want you so, I'm ready to go

CHORUS:
Through the fire
To the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you
I'd gladly risk it all
Through the fire
Through whatever, come what may
For a chance at loving you
I'd take it all the way
Right down to the wire
Even through the fire

I know you're afraid of what you feel
You still need time to heal
And I can help if you'll only let me try
You touch me and something in me knew
What I could have with you
Well I'm not ready to kiss that dream goodbye

When it's this sweet, there's no saying no
I need you so, I'm ready to go

CHORUS

Through the test of time

CHORUS

Through the fire, to the limit
Through the fire, through whatever
Through the fire, to the limit
Through the fire, through whatever

Caught In The Act
Written by Joe Mardin and Alec Milstein

Suspicions rising, answers aren't clear
I thought we made a promise, now you've disappeared
You seem to lead two lives at a time
Do I still fit in, I thought you were mine
Sitting at the bar in our favorite cafe
I turn and see ya laughin' with her and your smile fades away
Didn't surprise me, there's nothin' left to say
I caught you red-handed now and you can't walk away

CHORUS:
You were caught in the act
When you thought I wasn't lookin' at ya
C.I.T.A., I can see what you're doin'
Caught in the act, and I can't stand to hear your lies
Caught in the act, don't you try and change my mind

You called me the only, you said, "she's only a friend"
Don't pretend you're sorry, my heart will mend
Don't you come back to me, don't you try to call
You couldn't hold my heart with love, now you can't hold me at all

CHORUS

Caught in the act, caught in the act
Caught in the act, C.I.T.A.
Caught in the act, caught in the act
Caught in the act, C.I.T.A.

Chinatown
Written by Phillippe Saisse, Rhoda Roberts and Chaka Khan

Yin yang
A feelingís evolving through me
Sweet and sour
Is the taste you bring

When I said goodbye, you loved me
When I turned to you, you turned away
When I was so gung-ho
He said Ďlet me goí

He begged me to stay, stay, stay
If I try to find out whatís on your mind
Iíll find out in Chinatown

Chorus:
Chinatown
I donít know how to read you
Upside down
The signs will all mislead you
Like this town
Youíre such a mystery to me
Chinatown
I donít know how to read you
Upside down
The signs will all mislead you

Iíll track you down
And youíll go crazy for me
So much smoke I canít get through to you
Eyes that I canít see

They stare me down
Here Iím chasiní you
Some crazy Fu Manchu
And it feels so wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong

When I try to find out whatís on your mind
Iíll find out in Chinatown

Chorus
