Fields of Gold – The Police

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley

You’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we walk in fields of gold

So she took her love for to gaze awhile upon the fields of barley

In his arms she fell as her hair came down among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love among the fields of barley?

We’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we lie in fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so upon the fields of barley.

Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth among the fields of gold

I never made promises lightly and there have been some that I’ve broken

But I swear in the days still left we’ll walk in fields of gold

We’ll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days among the fields of barley

See the children run as the sun goes down among the fields of gold

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley

You can tell the sun in his jealous sky when we walked in fields of gold

When we walked in fields of gold, when we walked in fields of gold

 

Up Where We Belong -Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes

Who knows what tomorrow brings

In a world few hearts survive

All I know is the way I feel

When it’s real, I keep it alive

The road is long

There are mountains in our way

But we climb a step every day

Love lift us up where we belong

Where the eagles cry

On a mountain high

Love lift us up where we belong

Far from the world below

Up where the clear winds blow

Some hang on to used to be

Live their lives looking behind

All we have is here and now

All our lives, out there to find

The road is long

There are mountains in our way

But we climb a step every day

Love lift us up where we belong

Where the eagles cry

On a mountain high

Love lift us up where we belong

Far from the world we know

Where the clear winds blow

Time goes by

No time to cry

Life’s you and I

Alive today

Love lift us up where we belong

Where the eagles cry

On a mountain high

Love lift us up where we belong

Far from the world we know

Where the clear winds blow

Love lift us up where we belong

Where the eagles cry

On a mountain high

 

In My Life – The Beatles

There are places I’ll remember

All my life though some have changed

Some forever not for better

Some have gone and some remain

All these places have their moments

With lovers and friends I still can recall

Some are dead and some are living

In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers

There is no one compares with you

And these memories lose their meaning

When I think of love as something new

Though I know I’ll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know I’ll often stop and think about them

In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know I’ll often stop and think about them

In my life

I love you more

In my life

I love you more

 

We’ve Only Just Begun – The Carpenters

We’ve only just begun to live

White lace and promises

A kiss for luck and we’re on our way

(We’ve only begun)

Before the risin’ sun, we fly

So many roads to choose

We’ll start out walkin’ and learn to run

And yes, we’ve just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us

Watching the signs along the way

Talkin’ it over, just the two of us

Workin’ together day to day

Together

And when the evening comes, we smile

So much of life ahead

We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow

And yes, we’ve just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us

Watching the signs along the way

Talkin’ it over, just the two of us

Workin’ together day to day

Together

Together

And when the evening comes, we smile

So much of life ahead

We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow

And yes, we’ve just begun
