A time for us, some day there'll be
When chains are torn by courage born of a love that's free
A time when dreams so long denied can flourish
As we unveil the love we now must hide

A time for us, at last to see
A life worthwhile for you and me

And with our love, through tears and thorns
We will endure as we pass surely through every storm
A time for us, some day there'll be a new world
A world of shining hope for you and me

For you and me

And with our love, through tears and thorns
We will endure as we pass surely through every storm
A time for us, some day there'll be a new world
A world of shining hope for you and me

A world of shining hope for you and me

2. Hawaiian Wedding Song 2.28
(King - Hoffman - Manning)

This is the moment
I've waited for
I can hear my heart singing
Soon bells will be ringing

This is the moment
Of sweet Aloha
I will love you longer than forever
Promise me that you will leave me never

Here and now dear, All my love, I vow dear
Promise me that you will leave me never
I will love you longer than forever

U-a, si-la
Pa-a ia me o-e
Ko a-lo-ha ma-ka-mea e i-po
Ka-'u ia e le-i a-e ne-i la

Now that we are one
Clouds won't hide the sun
Blue skies of Hawaii smile
On this, our wedding day
I do love you with all my heart

3. When I Fall in Love 3.00
(V. Young - E. Hayman)

When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it’s begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart
It will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that
You feel that way too

Is when I fall in love with you
And the moment I can feel that
You feel that way too
Is when I fall in love
When I fall in love
When I fall in love with you

4. Are You Lonesome Tonight? 3.12
(Roy Turk - Lou Handman)
Bourne Company/TRO-Cromwell Music Inc (Ascap)

Are you lonesome tonight,
Do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

I wonder if you’re lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the world’s a stage
And each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart.
Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And why I’ll never know.
Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you.
But I’d rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you.
Now the stage is bare and I’m standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you won’t come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down.

Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

5. I Believe 2.55
[Words and Music by Ervin Drake, Jimmy Shirl, Al Stillman and Irvin Graham]

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows
I believe for everyone that goes astray
Someone will come to show the way
I believe
I believe

I believe above the storm the smallest prayer
Will still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky
Then I know why I believe

Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky
Then I know why I believe
(Why I believe)

Side Two

1. Guess Who 3.06
Guess Who was performed by Jesse Belvin in 1959. See below in bold type, Donny
Osmond has changed lyrics. Original is in plain type.

Someone really loves you
Guess who, guess who
Someone really cares
Guess who (guess who)

Open your heart
Surely then you`ll see
That the someone who cares is me

Someone will wait eternally (guess who)
Someone who wants your love
Desperately (guess who)

Open your eyes
Surely then you`ll see
That someone who cares is me

(Someone really loves you) guess who, guess who
(Someone really cares)
Guess who, guess who

Open up your heart (eyes)
Surely then you`ll see
That the someone who cares is me

Original Written by Jesse Belvin and Jo Anne Belvin
Someone really loves you
Guess who, guess who
Someone really cares
Guess who (guess who)

Open your heart
Surely then you`ll see
That someone who cares is me

Someone weeps eternally (guess who)
Someone who wants your love
Desperately (guess who)

Open your heart
Surely then you`ll see
That someone who cares is me

(Someone really loves you) guess who,
(Someone really cares)
Guess , guess who

Open up your heart (eyes)
Surely then you`ll see
That someone who cares is me

2. Young And In Love 2.35
(St. John)

When you're young and in love
The whole world seems to know
Love is like a candle light
Always giving off a glow

When you're young and in love
All your troubles pass on by
There is nothing in this whole wide world
That could ever make you cry

When you're in love
You walk in the clouds
Night time turns to day

And the dark clouds
That covered the sky
They just seem to go away

When you're young and in love
The whole world seems to know
Love is like a candle light
Always giving off a glow

The whole world seems to know
When you're young in love

3. A Million To One 2.42
(P. Medley)

A million to one:
That's what our folks say about this love of ours.
A million to one:
They say that our love will fade, like yesterday's clouds.
They are betting everything, that our love won't survive
They're hoping, in time, we will forget each other's love.

A million to one:
They say we're to young to know the meaning of love.
A million to one:
That they've forgotten the dreams that we're dreaming of.
But we'll forgive them,
Because we love them.
After all that's said and done.
There's one in a million;
A million to one.

A million to one:
They say that we're too young to know the meaning of love.
A million to one:
That they've forgotten the dreams that we're dreaming of.
But we'll forgive them,
Because we love them.
After all that's said and done.
There's one in a million;
A million to one.

(Instrumental Until Fade)

4. A Boy Is Waiting 2.37
(Costa / Caldwell)

A boy is waiting for summer skies and laughter
For smiling eyes that still believe in wishing wells

Oh how the boy is waiting to know someone who'll love him
To find the one who'll show him that it's not too far to a star

But when his magic ship is far away
And when the sails have faded into gray
You'll reap a sunbeam from a rainy day
And bring the love that made his dreams come true
This boy was waiting all alone for you

5. Unchained Melody 4.20

Whoa! My love, my darling,
I hunger for your touch,
Alone. Lonely time.
And time goes by, so slowly,
And time can do so much,
Are you still mine?
I need your love.
I need your love.
God speed your love to me.

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea,
To the open arms of the sea.
Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me,
I'll be coming home, wait for me.

Whoa! My love, my darling,
I hunger, hunger!, for your love,
For love. Lonely time.
And time goes by, so slowly,
And time can do so much,
Are you still mine?
I need your love.
I need your love.
God speed your love to me.
