"Moonlight's Back in Style (songs by Nicky Campbell)" lyrics

Come for the Ride

Come for the ride
Oh Baby come for the ride
Come for the ride
Just put your head back and fly
Look in my eyes
I know the future is on our side.
The winds on our heals
And I'm turning those wheels tonight.
Come for the ride
Oh babe we'll go where you like
We'll roar down that strip on this fantastical trip
Come for a ride on my amazing Electra Glide
The city is calling there's no time for stalling tonight.
We ain't got no map and we don't need no plan
We'll fly with the birds and we'll jam with the band
They all say we can't go but oh yes we can so hey baby decide now
Come for a ride now
Baby decide now
Come for a ride now
Don't care what they say girl we're driving today
Say - Hey Billy May! Let the boys blow away
We'll race through pines chasing electrical power lines
Make the most of our lives now so come for a ride now and fly
We don't have no Sat Nav we don't have no plan
Have boogie with bird have jam with the band.
It's our little drama and just like Obama says ‘oh yes we can go no one can say no'.  
Come for a ride on my amazing Electra Glide
Come for a ride now, oh baby decide now cause
After this night mow you'll be satisfied now
Come for a ride now, its our kind of night now tonight

A Blast from the Past

A blast from the past
A memory that lingers still
A wind to warm the winter chill
A love that never died.
A blast from the past
A ghost I guessed I'd laid to rest
A feeling that was best suppressed
But always deep inside.
A blast from the past
A love affair that somehow went astray
But that was another day -
and life went another way
Now we've both moved on.
And every time I hear a certain song -
A blast from the past
A ghost that was gone
A love that lives on.
A blast from the past
That feeling that we knew so well
That sweet enchanted magic spell
From oh so long ago.
A blast from the past
A moment when our heartbeats skip
And butterflies are on the flip
The moment when you know.
The past was a blast
And there'll always be a place for you and me
But that was another day -
and life went another way
And now we've both moved on.
But everytime I hear that certain song -
A blast from the past
A ghost that was gone
A love that lives on.

Moonlight's Back in Style

Hey there you!
You're not at the party,
Me too
But I'm having a ball
Look up at that sky it's impossibly bright
Each constellation's a wondrous sight
It's such a cliché to sashay
down that glamorous mile
Who cares what they're wearing when
moonlight is back in style.
What's new? What's in a label?
Tell me who is really able to say?
I'm never quite sure who or what is in vogue
Claudette Colbert or Kylie Minogue
The latest thing's only the greatest thing
for a short while
And when I was kissing you -
moonlight was back in style.
Hold the headlines and deadlines -
This is the news
A big breaking story to banish the blues
All those big shot producers they pick
and they choose
But now moonlight is all the rage
they ain't got no excuse.
Yes - your friends are up on the catwalk
Dressed in trends the world will forget
We'll remember this night
when the stars all conferred
Had a word with the moon
and then look what occurred.
That magical moment that happens
the minute you smile
Fashion is fickle but
moonlight was always in style.
Moonlight was always in style.

Angel Don't Cry

Angel don't cry
Daddy is here for you
I'll make all those naughty tears
disappear for you
Subsequent troubles will just melt away
Just like the bubbles that burst when you play.
Angel don't cry
I'll always be there for you
Near or afar - dying to care for you
Everyone knows that's what daddies are for
So angels don't cry anymore.
Angel don't cry
I'll always be here for you
Near or afar, dying to care for you
Everyone knows that's what daddies are for
So angels don't cry anymore.

We'll Never have Manhattan

We'll never have Manhattan
It's never going to happen
We'll never make that movie come true
We'll never make that Empire State rendezvous
Oh, Living here in Streatham.
Those dreams - we can forget em
We'll never get to Rhapsodise in Blue.
We'll never have Manhattan
My Battery's been flattened
Reality is spoiling the view
We'll never stroll down Fifth Avenue.
I was itching for Hell's Kitchen
But it's Balham and it's Mitcham
And Tooting Broadway's gonna have to do.
I want to stroll in Central Park
Barefoot after dark
With Frank and Ella swaying in the breeze
We'll never see the colours changing in the trees
Cause Tooting Broadway's where we're gonna be.
We'll never have Manhattan
It's never going to happen
We'll never see the lower Eastside
We'll never take a Grand Central Railroad ride.
We need a four-leaf clover
Cause lives are easy over
And ours got kinda stuck in Rotherhithe.
So now when we desire a
Small touch of George and Ira
We're right in that in that environment too
Oh but we'll never dance down
Street Number Forty Two.
We got Purley
We got Peckham
We got Brooklyn
As in Beckham?
And Tooting Broadway's going to have to do
Or Fulham Broadway, if we're well to do
But Tooting Broadway's there for me and you.

Many's the Time

Many's the time that I wandered
around with no song
Now that you've come along
The music is coming on strong.
Many's the day that I wasted away
with no smile
Now that you're by my side
My smile is so sparkling and wide.
Many's the hour in my Ivory Tower
When I looked at the desert
and longed for a flower
God in his power I could never believe
One would bloom quite as brightly
as you have in me.
Many's the time when that silvery moon
never gleamed
Now that you're in my sky
The night's not as dark as it seemed
Many's the time when this piano you hear
wouldn't play
Now that you are my song
The melody won't go away.
Many's the night that I longed for a light
I could shine in the shadows
and make the world light
You are the beacon enlightening me
And from now it's a different world that I see.
Many's the hour in my Ivory Tower
When I looked at the desert
and longed for a flower
God in his power I would never believe
One could bloom quite as brightly
as you have in me.
Many's the night that I longed for a light
I could shine in the shadows
and make the world light
You are the beacon enlightening me
And from now it's a different world that I see.
Many's the night that I longed for a light
I could shine in the shadows
and make the world light
You are the beacon enlightening me
And from now it's a beautiful world that I see.

I'll Make an Exception for You

I've never known nor do I care for love
For it's been shown you should beware of love
They say it comes just when you least expect
You lose your heart and then your self-respect.
I've heard it said I've got this fear of love
Alert to red and I steer clear of love
I've got a dread of that quite dreadful stuff
It's all too much hullabaloo
But I'll make an exception for you.
I don't subscribe to any myth of love
If I'd imbibe the merest whiff of love
I'd have to sign that ‘I the undersigned
Complies hereby to lose my mind'.
Fat ladies sing romantic fluff for love
That's ain't my thing. I'm not an Opera buff
It's frightening the way you called my bluff
Here's what this boys gonna do
I'll make an exception for you.
You're the one; the one who's knocked me flat
The boys back in my corner all agree
There's not a chance for me, said Angelo Dundee
I'm a rope a dope who just went "pit-a-pat".
You're the dream; the dream I'm having all the time
I've never felt this Sugar-Ray before
You hit me where it hurts
My heart is fit to burst
I'm loving it because you are mine.
And now my love I've got a thirst for love
This is a most incredible first for love
But I don't care; whatever else I do
I'm loving you all my life through
And I've made an exception for you.

Through it all

I know there's something going wrong
inside your heart
You say there's nothing I can do.
Don't be afraid
I'm here for you baby.
Through it all you I'll try to pull you through.
You say the light of love has broken in your eyes
I know there's something I can do
Here in my arms
I got the answer
You know that through it all
I'm gonna pull you through.
Patiently I'll bide
Ignoring time and tide.
Eternity's okay with me
If at the end of time you say you'll stay with me
Through fate or just a case of serendipity.
I know there's someone
who meant everything to you
You say there's no one can compare
Look at my hands [oh baby please]
I'm holding a candle
Maybe you'll never know how much I really care.
Please understand [oh baby please]
I've been holding this candle
And I apologise if you were unaware.
Patiently I'll bide
Through trouble time and tide
Eternity's okay with me
If at the end of time you say you'll stay with me
When you discover our compatibility.
Now you know there's someone
who has loved you for so long
I know there's nothing I can do
But give you my love; you are so lovely.
You know that through it all
I'll try to pull you through
Through it all I'll try to pull you through
Through it all I'll pray my love will do.

I got my Hat, I got my Shoes

I got my hat, I got my shoes.
I got my book about the blues -
hey babe I'm absolutely fine.
I got my cup I got my tees/ teas
I got my classic DVDs
Oh yes I'm absolutely fine.
I got my mini obelisks; I got my desert island discs
You know I'm really feeling swell
I got my portrait of Sinatra
and my antique Karma Satra
I may well need it, who can tell.
I'm gonna take my chance without a song and dance
I'm gonna find a little place to call my own
I'm gonna soft shoe shuffle out of here
and leave this show behind
For if I turn around I know I'll change my mind.
I got my list of piano chords;
I got my ticket stub from lords
You know I'll always find the rhyme.
I got that book by Stephen Hawking,
that I always meant to read
And now I know I'll find the time.
I'm gonna take my chance without a second glance
I'm gonna get a little flat that I can own
I'm gonna wrap this clichéd movie scene
without a second take
But if I turn around my heart will only break.

Love Ran Out of Time

Etched in a teardrop
Your lips touching mine
Down; down in the sand dunes that summer
Before love ran out of time.
Sweet apple blossom
Back when; back when you were mine
I'll feel your softness forever and ever
But our love ran out of time.
A sweet stolen moment, an hour,
a lifetime, its gone
Etched in a teardrop of time
like a line from a song.
I'll always remember your last glance
In the rush of a Northerly line
As the train pulled away from our last dance
Love had run out of time.

The Birds are Singing Your Name Again

The birds are singing your name again
That melody with the sweet refrain
The wind is softly whistling in my ear
The music's always exquisite
 when love decides to revisit
But how those sounds are bringing you near now.
The stars are showing your eyes to me.
So darling it's no surprise to me
And after all this time loves never wrong
All the while I was aching
with all the time that it's taken
But now we're back on song.
We gotta hold on to the feeling hold on to it tight
We got a lot of loving and we got a lot of living to share
Hold on to the meaning hold on in the night
It'll take a lot of love
but we got a load of lovin to spare
Everything's right now!
The grey is turning to blue again;
my eyes are turning to you again
Finally the sun shines through the rain
There it is that old feeling that long ago
sent me reeling
And now I'm gone again.
We gotta hold on to the feeling, hold on to it tight
We got a lot of loving and we got a lot of living to share
Hold on to the meaning, hold on in the night
It'll take a lot of love
but we got a load of lovin to spare.
Everything's right now!
The birds are singing your name again
That melody with the sweet refrain
The wind is softly whistling in my ear.
The music's more than exquisite
And I am wondering is it time
that we were making it clear.
We're gonna be riding till the end of the line
And we're a gonna be an item till the end of time
Nothings never ever gonna stop us
like it did before
If they ever try to divide us,
they sure don't know what's inside us
Now love means so much more.

The Universe of Blue

Rain keeps on falling
Sky keeps on crying
The grey clouds are trawling the heavens
for tears.
No point in calling
No point in trying
Nobody listens and nobody hears.
It's so easy for lovers; they know just what to do
Holding each other tight the lonely night through
But what of the others
The ones like me and you
Trying to find a way through
This universe of blue.
The days take up living
But the night's unforgiving
The stars are all hiding their faces in shame.
A lasting perception
Or a passing deception
The whole world has changed
but it's all just the same.
It was easy for lovers
We knew just what to do,
Holding each other tight
Like we used to do
The whole long night through.
When there were no others
Just me my love and you
Now we're alone drifting
through this universe of blue.

Wonderfully Wonderful You

I was at rock bottom and feeling blue
When out of the blue a dream came true
You came like an angel on gossamer wings
And wrapped me right up
with them Seraphim things.
I was locked in an Alcatraz of misery
and all that Jazz
When you flew right in with the key
Now it's indisputable and quite irrefutable
We were just meant to be.
You saved me and baby,
you were there in the nick of time.
I was out of control losing my soul,
wasting my time on some other rainbow
Now it's incontrovertibly true;
Oh darling I was rescued by
wonderfully wonderful you.
I'm walking on air and there's cloud nine
I'm sticking up here cause you are mine
You've given my life everything
You gave me your number. I gave you a ring.
I'm lost in a reverie of missing you with every
Second that you're not with me.
And now incontestably you bring out the best in me
It's there for the world to see.
Baby you saved me just in the nick of time.
I was out of control losing my soul,
wasting my life on some other rainbow
Now it's just undeniably true;
Oh darling I've been rescued by
wonderfully wonderful you.
You saved me. You saved me.
Oh you're here in the nick of time.
I was out of control losing my soul,
but here we are following our own rainbow
Baby! Credit where credit is due;
Oh darling I've been rescued by
wonderfully wonderful you.
Wonderfully wonderful you. And that's true.

You make this Whole Crazy Story Worthwhile

Lying on the bed
Holding out for journeys end
They're dancing on TV again
Looks like they're more than just good friends
Hey brother, hey sister! Which ones the pro?
Sometimes it's kind of hard to know.
Turn another page
Eat another pack of lies
I'll leave the tray outside
And then raise a glass to another grey sunrise
Oh lover, my lover
Right now you'd just smile.
You make this whole crazy story worthwhile.
Phone numbers scattered
Anecdotes and photographs
None of them mattered
Where are they now?
Running for the bus
Long before the two of us
As kids we'd always sit upstairs
Smoking and joking in our kickers
and flares then.
Oh mother, your mother
God bless her child
She made this whole crazy story worthwhile
You make this whole crazy story worthwhile.
