Todd's classic hits, recorded in a Bosa Nova style. Todd's Cover notes:
Am I serious? I'm always serious. Bosa Nova is serious music - not for the faint of heart. It's a music devoid of the histrionics that mask your true feelings. It's about the thoughful study of emotions and conditions - of why we feel as much as what we feel.
There was no question in my mind about the appropriateness of this style to the challenge of reproducing 'sacred' favorites. How else to revive the material for myself as much as for others?
Seriously yours, TR
It was late last night I was feeling something wasn't right There was not another soul in sight Only you, only you So we walked along, though I knew there was something wrong And the feeling hot me oh so strong about you Then you gazed up at me and the answer was plain to see 'Cause I saw the light in your eyes Though we had our fling I just never would suspect a thing 'Til that little bell began to ring in my head In my head But I tried to run, though I knew it wouldn't help me none 'Cause I couldn't ever love no one, or so I said But my feelings for you were just something I never knew 'Til I saw the light in your eyes But I love you best It's not something that I say in jest (ha ha) 'Cause you're different, girl, from all the rest In my eyes And I ran out before but I won't do it anymore Can't you see the light in my eyes
I can feel, I can tell I can feel, I can tell, I can see Something is changing To me change is no stranger I don't run, I don't hide I don't run, I don't hide, I don't fight What fate arranges I don't think about danger If it was meant for me I'd know just where to go But if I can take it slow Then I might be in control In the back of my head In the back of my head there is doubt There is suspicion With my new fascination I don't know what it is I don't know what it is, you might say It's intuition It's a true indication I should trust myself I should beware of this But it's like a stranger's kiss And somehow I can't resist I can feel my will slip away From a strange influenza I can feel my mind slip away Under your influenza I can feel my heart slip away Under your influenza There's a part of my heart There's a part of my heart that cries out Please go no further I just can't take the pressure So I try to resist So I try to resist and my heart Tells me don't bother That this pain is a pleasure If I were someone else I wouldn't disagree But it's always hard to see When something's controlling me
We can't play this game anymore But can we still be friends Things just can't go on like before But can we still be friends We had something to learn Now it's time for the wheel to turn Grains of sand, one by one Before you know it, all gone Let's admit we made a mistake But can we still be friends Heartbreak's never easy to take But can we still be friends It's a strange, sad affair Sometimes seems like we just don't care Don't waste time feeling hurt We've been through hell together Can we still get together sometime You know life will still go on and on and on We awoke from our dream Things are not always what they seem Memories linger on It's like a sweet, sad old song
Everyone asks Are we some kind of lovers? Everyone asks what you're doing with me I know this is not what they want They're afraid you've been blinded But I already know how it's going to be If anyone should ask Say we're mated For as long as this life lasts We are mated Why else would you be here right now And you know we'll still be here tomorrow Nobody else understands what I'm doing Nobody else makes me act in this way And because they can't comprehend What we mean to each other They won't leave you alone So you know what to say I hold you in my heart 'Cause we're mated In a very special part We are mated Why else would I be here right now And you know I'll still be here tomorrow I see things far ahead, maybe light Maybe beautiful children I don't have words I'm thinking of But it's way beyond what they call love
Do you remember the last time I said If I ever thought about lying, I'd rather think of dying instead And maybe you remember the last time you called me to say we were through How it took a million tears just to prove they all were for you But those days are through 'Cause it wouldn't have made any difference, if you loved me How could you love me When it wouldn't really make any difference, if you really loved me You just didn't love me 'Cause I know of hundreds of times I could be In the most unfaithful arms that you always picture me And maybe you remember that though I can't always show proof I was true No one else could change my mind or stop me coming home to you But those days are through You just did not love me enough to believe me Enough not to leave me Enough not to look for a reason to be unhappy with me And make me regret ever wanting you But those days are through
Name your price A ticket to paradise I can't stay here any more And I've looked high and low I've been from shore to shore to shore If there's a short cut I'd have found it But there's no easy way around it Light of the world, shine on me Love is the answer Shine on us all, set us free Love is the answer Who knows why Someday we all must die We're all homeless boys and girls And we are never heard It's such a lonely world People turn their heads and walk on by Tell me, is it worth just another try? Tell me, are we alive, or just a dying planet? What are the chances? Ask the man in your heart for the answers And when you feel afraid, love one another When you've lost your way, love one another When you're all alone, love one another When you're far from home, love one another When you're down and out, love one another All your hope's run out, love one another When you need a friend, love one another When you're near the end, love one another We got to love one another Light of the world, you got to shine Love will be a means, yeah, yeah Shine on us all Know that love can save the day Just give it one more chance Lord you just can't let it stop Lord Love is the answer Got to be free to let love into your life Let it shine
I've been hurt I've never been so hurt Yes, and only you know why But I would be far more hurt if we had to say good bye When I think that it's all or nothing I tell myself True love does not demand fidelity If there's one sacred place always in your heart for me Time has come I knew the time would come When someone would want to be more than friends But we had a love so sweet I thought the dream would never end If my love could not withstand this jealousy I'd remember the day I threw away our eternity Has no plan, things will happen we don't understand One day the glove is on the other hand And when you think that it's all or nothing Just tell yourself If our love could not withstand this jealousy We'd remember the day we threw away our eternity If it's true love, it does not demand fidelity Oh it hurt me so bad But I can't help but love you for eternity I know we got a true love
I know a place where dreams are born And time is never planned It's not on any chart You must find it in your heart Never Never Land It may be miles beyond the moon Or right there where you stand Just keep an open mind And then suddenly you'll find Never Never Land You'll have a treasure if you stay there More precious far than gold For once you have found your way there You will never, never grow old And that's my home where dreams are born And time is never planned Just think of pleasant things And your heart will fly on wings, forever in Never Never Land
Hello, it's me I've thought about us for a long, long time Maybe I think too much but something's wrong There's something here that doesn't last too long Maybe I shouldn't think of you as mine Seeing you Or seeing anything as much as I do you I take for granted that you're always there I take for granted that you just don't care Sometimes I can't help seeing all the way through It's important to me that you know you are free 'Cause I never want to make you change for me Think of me You know that I'd be with you if I could I'll come around to see you once in a while Or if I ever need a reason to smile And spend the night if you think I should
I want you the right way I want you, but I want you to want me too Want you to want me too Just like I want you I give you all the love I have baby, and get nothing in return Your love is all I crave It's too bad, it's too sad You don't want me now I want you the right way I want you, but I want you to want me too Want you to want me too Just like I want you This one way love is just a fantasy To share is precious, pure and fair Don't play with something you should cherish for life Baby don't you want to care?
A million old soldiers will fade away But a dream goes on forever I'm left standing here, I've got nothing to say All is silent within my dream A thousand true loves will live and die But a dream lives on forever The days and the years will go streaking by But the time has stopped in my dream We all have our everyday hopes and fears And you'll find no exception in me But that doesn't get me through a sea of tears Over life's biggest tragedy You're so long ago and so far away But my dream lives on forever I guess I believe that I'll see you one day For without it there is no dream You're so far away and so long ago But my dream goes on forever And how much I loved you you'll never know 'Til you join me within my dream
