Meat Loaf - Best of Best of

     
 

A Kiss is a terrible Thing to waste

If you listen to the night you can hear the darkness call
I can barely stand to wait, I can barely stand it all
C'mon closer to me now, it's like we're sharing the same skin
We gotta get out of this jail, we gotta let the future in

So many things in your life that you're bound to regret
Why didn't I do that? Why didn't I do this?
So many chances you lost that you'll never forget
Why didn't I make it, why didn't I take it right there?

The loneliest words you'll ever know, 'If only...if only it was so'
The emptiest words that there'll ever be, 'It could have been me'
You'll have to pay for it later if you don't get it when it's going for free
Believe me
Believe me
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
And one of these nights you're gonna show me that you already know
There's a feast waiting for you and you've never gotten a taste
It's later than you think and a kiss is a terrible thing to waste

You shouldn't tremble when we touch, there's no reason for these fears
It's a promise that was made, we've been promised this for years
I wanna show you it all, what to do and where and how
'Cause we'll never be as young as we are right now
We'll never be as young as we are right now

So many cries in the night that you try to ignore
Why didn't I take it? Why didn't I make it come true?
The loneliest words you'll ever know, 'If only...if only it was so'
The emptiest words that there'll ever be, 'It could have been me'

Tire tracks and broken hearts, that's all we're leaving behind
It doesn't matter what we're losing, it only matters what we're going to find
There's a feast waiting for you and you've never even gotten a taste
It's later than you think and a kiss is a terrible thing to waste

Home by now / No matter what

The locusts are singing
The sun is red
It’s gotten so late somehow
There’s gonna be trouble
You know what they said
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by now
The thunder is rolling
The sky is black
It’s gotten so dark somehow
There’s gonna be danger
God I wish we were back
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by now

No matter what they tell us
No matter what they do
No matter what they teach us
What we believe is true
No matter what they call us
However they attack
No matter where they take us
We’ll find our own way back
I can’t deny what 1 believe
I can’t be what I’m not
I know I’ll love forever, I know -
No matter what.

If only tears were laughter
If only night was day
If only prayers were answered.
Then we would hear God say:
No matter what they tell you
No matter what they do
No matter what they teach you
What you believe is true

And I will keep you safe and strong
And sheltered from the storm
No matter where it’s barren
A dream is being born
No matter where they follow
No matter where they lead
No matter how they judge us
I’ll be everyone you need
No matter if the sun don’t shine
Or if the skies are blue
No matter what the ending
My life began with you

I can’t deny what I believe
I can’t be what I’m not
I know this love’s forever
I know no matter what
I can’t deny what believe
I can’t be what I’m not
I know this love’s forever
That’s all that matters now
No matter what

The thunder is rolling
The sky is black
It’s gotten so dark somehow
There’s gonna be danger god, I wish we were back
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by now

Is nothing sacred

If a love as strong as ours, couldn't make it all the way.
Can anything make sense at all?
If a love so deep and true, couldn't stand the test of
time.
Then Mount Everest could slide and Jerusalem could fall.
Is nothing sacred anymore? Is forever just another word?
Is a promise something people use to keep when love was
worth fighting for?
If we can say goodbye, if we can say goodbye.
Is nothing sacred anymore?
If we can say goodbye.
Is nothing sacred anymore?

I can hear the final words, every sentence that was said.
Don't know what turned our lives around.
It doesn't matter who was right.
There's no justice in a dream.
Never thought a heart could break without making a sound.
Is nothing sacred anymore? Is forever just another word?
Is a promise something people use to keep when love was
worth fighting for?
If we can say goodbye, if we can say goodbye.
Is nothing sacred anymore?
If we can say goodbye.
Is nothing sacred anymore?

Our love was as certain as the dawn.
As solid and safe as any love can be.
Our love was a star to wish upon.
And you thought that I'd saved you.
Could've sworn that you saved me.
Is nothing sacred anymore? Is forever just another word?
Is a promise something people use to keep when love was
worth fighting for?
If we can say goodbye, if we can say goodbye.
Is nothing sacred anymore?
If we can say goodbye.
Is nothing sacred anymore?

Is nothing sacred anymore? Is forever just another word?
Is a promise something people use to keep when love was
worth fighting for?
If we can say goodbye, if we can say goodbye.
Is nothing sacred anymore?
If we can say goodbye.
Is nothing sacred anymore?
