Meat Loaf – Paradise By The Dashboard Ligh

I remember every little thing 
As if it happened only yesterday 
Parking by the lake 
And there was not another car in sight 
And I never had a girl 
Looking any better than you did 
And all the kids at school 
They were wishing they were me that night 
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight 
It never felt so good, it never felt so right 
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife 
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife 
C’mon! Hold on tight! 
C’mon! Hold on tight! 
Thought it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night 
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

GIRL: 

Ain’t no doubt about it 
We were doubly blessed 
’Cause we were barely seventeen 
And we were barely dressed 
Ain’t no doubt about it 
Baby got to go and shout it 
Ain’t no doubt about it 
We were doubly blessed
BOY: 

’Cause we were barely seventeen 
And we were barely dressed 
Baby doncha hear my heart 
You got it drowning out the radio 
I’ve been waiting so long 
For you to come along and have some fun 
And I gotta let you know 
No you’re never gonna regret it 
So open up your eyes I got a big surprise 
It’ll feel all right 
Well I wanna make your motor run 
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight 
It never felt so good, it never felt so right 
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife 
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife 
C’mon! Hold on tight! 
C’mon! Hold on tight!

Though it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night 
I can see paradise by the dashboard light 
Paradise by the dashboard light 
You got to do what you can 
And let Mother Nature do the rest 
Ain’t no doubt about it 
We were doubly blessed 
’Cause we were barely seventeen 
And we were barely-
We’re gonna go all the way tonight 
We’re gonna go all the way 
And tonight’s the night… 
We’re gonna go all the way tonight 
We’re gonna go all the way 
And tonight’s the night…

RADIO BROADCAST 
OK, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here, 
Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth, 
There’s the windup, and there it is, a line shot up the middle, 
Look at him go. This boy can really fly! He’s rounding first and really 
turning it on now, he’s not letting up at all, he’s gonna try for 
second; the ball is bobbled out in center, and here comes the 
throw, and what a throw! He’s gonna slide in head first, here he 
comes, he’s out! No, wait, safe-safe at second base, this kid 
really makes things happen out there. Batter steps up to the 
plate, here’s the pitch-he’s going, and what a jump he’s got, 
he’s trying for third, here’s the throw, it’s in the dirt-safe at 
third! Holy cow, stolen base! He’s taking a pretty big lead out 
there, almost daring him to try and pick him off. The pitcher 
glances over, winds up, and it’s bunted, bunted down the third 
base line, the suicide squeeze is on! Here he comes, squeeze 
play, it’s gonna be close, holy cow, I think he’s gonna make it!

II. LET ME SLEEP ON IT 
GIRL: 

Stop right there! 
I gotta know right now! 
Before we go any further! 
Do you love me? 
Will you love me forever? 
Do you need me? 
Will you never leave me? 
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life? 
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife? 
Do you love me!? 
Will you love me forever!? 
Do you need me!? 
Will you never leave me!? 
Will you make me happy for the rest of my life!? 
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife!? 
I gotta know right now 
Before we go any further 
Do you love me!? 
Will you love me forever!?
BOY: 

Let me sleep on it 
Baby, baby let me sleep on it 
Let me sleep on it 
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning 
Let me sleep on it 
Baby, baby let me sleep on it 
Let me sleep on it 
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning 
Let me sleep on it 
Baby, baby let me sleep on it 
Let me sleep on it 
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning

GIRL: 

I gotta know right now 
Do you love me? 
Will you love me forever? 
Do you need me? 
Will you never leave me? 
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life? 
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife? 
I gotta know right now! 
Before we go any further 
Do you love me? 
And will you love me forever?

BOY: 

Let me sleep on it 
Baby, baby let me sleep on it 
Let me sleep on it 
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning 
Let me sleep on it
GIRL: 

Will you love me forever?
BOY: 

Let me sleep on it
GIRL: 

Will you love me forever!!!!

III. PRAYING FOR THE END OF TIME 
I couldn’t take it any longer 
Lord I was crazed 
And when the feeling came upon me 
Like a tidal wave 
I started swearing to my god and on my mother’s grave 
That I would love you to the end of time 
I swore that I would love you to the end of time! 
So now I’m praying for the end of time 
To hurry up and arrive 
’Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you 
I don’t think that I can really survive 
I’ll never break my promise or forget my vow 
But God only knows what I can do right now 
I’m praying for the end of time 
It’s all that I can do 
Praying for the end of time, 
So I can end my time with you!!
BOY: 

It was long ago and it was far away 
And it was so much better that it is today

GIRL: 

It never felt so good 
It never felt so right 
And we were glowing like 
A metal on the edge of a knife

Meat Loaf – Couldn’t have said it better

And you said nothing at all
Well I couldn’t have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

Little lady, I think there’s something
on your mind
I’ve known you long enough to know
The words are not that hard to find

And the harder you try and the
longer you go
Well there’s nothing but love in those
eyes anymore
You know what to say but you
never know how
You can keep your mouth shut because it
doesn’t really matter right now

I will guide you all the way
Because I know exactly what you’re
trying to say

You have the right to remain silent
I’ll get the lights… you get that smile
and you say nothing at all
Well I couldn’t have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

I see the angels, they’re standing
right outside your door
Girl: They’re watching over me, they’re
watching over us all
You can send them home tonight, because you
won’t need them anymore
Girl: In your arms I think I’ve found the
safest place to fall
When I step in the door and I stare at
your face
There are so many things that I wish
I could say
Well I struggle with words but they put
up a fight
You can keep your mouth shut, because it
doesn’t really matter tonight

I will guide you all the way tonight
Because I know exactly what you’re
trying to say

Girl: You have the right to remain silent
I’ll get the light… you get that smile
and you say nothing at all

Well I couldn’t have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like love nobody else

And I know you feel the same
You’ve been searching for the words,
Now you know what to say

Just say nothing – Don’t say a word
Silence is gold – Don’t say a word

This is the moment we’ve been waiting for
Girl: If I exercise my right
I will take your body language and hold it
against you tonight

And I know you feel the same
I’ve wondered all my life, if this moment comes
would I know what to say
Then you say nothing at all
Girl: So many times I stumbled on the
words I wanted to say
You say nothing at all
Girl: So many thoughts, that I should
have just let my heart explain
You say nothing at all
Girl: So many ways we could turn the
words around
You say nothing at all
Girl: So many nights our hearts came
crashing to the ground
You say nothing at all
Girl: So many dreams that are finally
coming true
Well, I couldn’t have said it better myself
Girl: Now you finish me off when you
finish my thoughts the way you do

You say nothing at all
Well I couldn’t have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like love nobody else


12-09-2010 – Meat Loaf – Two Out Of Three Aint Bad

can talk all night
But that ain’t gettin us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There’s nothing left inside of here
And maybe you can cry all night
But that’ll never change the way I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn’t make me leave here
I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I’m tired of words and I’m too hoarse to shout
But you’ve been cold to me so long
I’m crying icicles instead of tears
And all I can do
Is keep on telling you
I want you (I want you)
I need you (I need you)
But-there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad (Don’t be sad)
‚Cause two out of three ain’t bad
Now don’t be sad (Cause)
‚Cause two out of three ain’t bad

You’ll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You’ll never drill for oil on a city street
I know you’re looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
But there ain’t no Coup de Ville
Hiding at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box
I can’t lie
I can’t tell you that I’m something I’m not
No matter how I try
I’ll never be able
To give you something
Something that I just haven’t got
There’s only one girl that I will ever love
And that was so many years ago
And though I know I’ll never get her out of my heart
She never loved me back
Ooh I know
I remember how she left me on a stormy night
She kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away
And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
I want you (I want you)
I need you (I need you)
But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad (Don’t be sad)
‚Cause two out of three ain’t bad
I want you (I want you)
I need you (I need you)
But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad (Don’t be sad)
‚Cause two out of three ain’t bad
Now don’t be sad (Don’t)
‚Cause two out of three ain’t bad
Baby we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere


28-05-2010 – Meat Loaf – I’d Lie For You

I’d never tell you one lie
I’d never let you down
I’d never leave I’d be the one 
who’d always be around

Baby give me a chance
I’d pull the sun down from the sky 
To light your darkest night
I wouldn’t let one drop of rain 
fall down into your life
Put your heart in my hands

Baby believe me, I could never do you wrong
And I would never paint your world blue
And if sometimes it seems
I must have lost my mind 
I might be crazy,
but I’m crazy about you

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you’d just believe in me

Just take a look in my eyes
You’ll see a love that’s blind
Just take a hold of my hand
I’II take you to paradise
Ain’t a star that’s too far

Your every wish will be a wish
That I will make come true
And if you want the moon 
I swear
I’ll bring it down for you
Let me into your heart

Believe me baby 
Got your name carved on
my soul 
’cause you’re the only one that I’ll give it too

Go let’em say that I’m a fool to act this way 
’cause if I’m crazy,
I’m just crazy ‚bout you
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you’d just believe in me
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on the wild for you
If you’d just believe in me

And you will never see a day
I’ll ever break your heart
You’ll see the sky fall down
Before it ever gets that far
I’ll show you heaven
Every second that you’re in my arms
Baby I’m crazy, but I’m crazy ‚bout you
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you’d just believe in me
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on a wire for you
If you’d just believe in me
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I’d even sell my soul for you 
I’d do it all for you
If you’d just believe in me
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on a wire for you
If you’d just believe in me
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth


26-05-2010 – Meat Loaf – It’s All Coming Back To Me Now“

There were nights when the wind was so cold
That my body froze in bed
If I just listened to it
Right outside the window

There were days when the sun was so cruel
That all the tears turned to dust
And I just knew my eyes were
Drying up forever

I finished crying in the instant that you left
And I can’t remember where or when or how
And I banished every memory you and Ia had ever made

But when you touch me like this
And you hold me like that
I just have to admit
That it’s all coming back to me
When I touch you like this
And I hold you like that
It’s so hard to believe but
It’s all coming back to me
(It’s all coming back, it’s all coming back to me now)

There were moments of gold
And there were flashes of light
There were things I’d never do again
But then they’d always seemed right
There were nights of endless pleasure
It was more than any laws allow
Baby Baby

If I kiss you like this
And if you whisper like that
It was lost long ago
But it’s all coming back to me
If you want me like this
And if you need me like that
It was dead long ago
But it’s all coming back to me
It’s so hard to resist
And it’s all coming back to me
I can barely recall
But it’s all coming back to me now
But it’s all coming back

There were those empty threats and hollow lies
And whenever you tried to hurt me
I just hurt you even worse
And so much deeper

There were hours that just went on for days
When alone at last we’d count up all the chances
That were lost to us forever

But you were history with the slamming of the door
And I made myself so strong again somehow
And I never wasted any of my time on you since then

But if I touch you like this
And if you kiss me like that
It was so long ago
But it’s all coming back to me
If you touch me like this
And if I kiss you like that
It was gone with the wind
But it’s all coming back to me
(It’s all coming back, it’s all coming back to me now)

There were moments of gold
And there were flashes of light
There were things we’d never do again
But then they’d always seemed right
There were nights of endless pleasure
It was more than all your laws allow
Baby, Baby, Baby

When you touch me like this
And when you hold me like that
It was gone with the wind
But it’s all coming back to me
When you see me like this
And when I see you like that
Then we see what we want to see
All coming back to me
The flesh and the fantasies
All coming back to me
I can barely recall
But it’s all coming back to me now

If you forgive me all this
If I forgive you all that
We forgive and forget
And it’s all coming back to me
When you see me like this
And when I see you like that
We see just what we want to see
All coming back to me
The flesh and the fantasies
All coming back to me
I can barely recall but it’s all coming back to me now

(It’s all coming back to me now)
And when you kiss me like this
(It’s all coming back to me now)
And when I touch you like that
(It’s all coming back to me now)
If you do it like this
(It’s all coming back to me now)


16-05-2010 – Meat Loaf – Heaven Can Wait

 

heaven can wait
and a band of angels wrapped up in my heart
will take me through the lonely night
through the cold of the day
and i know 
i know 
heaven can wait 
and all the gods come down here just to sing for me 
and the melody´s gonna make me fly
without pain 
without fear
give me all of your dreams 
and let me go along on your way
give me all of your prayers to sing 
and i´ll turn the night into the skylight of day 
i got a taste of paradise 
i´m never gonna let it slip away
i got a taste of paradise 
it´s all i really need to make me stay –
just like a child again heaven can wait
and all i got is time until the end of time 
well i won´t look back 
i won´t look back 
let the altars shine
and i know that i´ve been released 
but i don´t know to where
and nobody´s gonna tell me now 
and i don´t really care
no no no 
i got a taste of paradise 
that´s all i really need to make me stay
i got a taste of paradise 
if i had it any sooner you know
you know i never would have run away from my home
heaven can wait
and all i got is time until the end of time
well i won´t look back 
i won´t look back
let the altars shine
heaven can wait
heaven can wait 
well
i won´t look back
i won´t look back
let the altars shine
let the altars shine
