NATALIE COLE: A SMILE LIKE YOURS [16]



Natalie Maria Cole (born February 6, 1950) is an American singer, songwriter and performer. The daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole, Cole rode to musical success in the mid-1970s as an R&B artist with the hits "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)", "Inseparable" and "Our Love". After a period of failing sales and performances due to a heavy drug addiction, Cole reemerged as a pop artist with the 1987 album, Everlasting, and her cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Pink Cadillac". In the 1990s, she re-recorded standards by her father, resulting in her biggest success, Unforgettable... with Love, which sold over seven million copies and also won Cole numerous Grammy Awards.

2. LOVE


L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can
Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see

3. UNFORGETTABLE

[Songwriters: Irving Gordon]



Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable, though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me

Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable, in every way
And forevermore, that's how you'll stay
(And forevermore, that's how you'll stay)

That's why darling it's incredible
]
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

No, never before has someone been more

Ooh, unforgettable in every way
(Unforgettable in every way)
And forevermore, that's how you'll stay
(And forevermore, that's how you'll stay)

That's why darling it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

4. A SMILE LIKE YOURS


Ooh-ooh
Thought I'd seen everything
There was to see in this world
Now I'm not so sure
I've really seen anything at all
I thought life, could show me no surprises
And then you came, and showed me I was wrong
1-I have seen the bluest skies
Rainbows that would make you cry
I have seen miracles that moved my soul
Days that changed my life
I have seen the brightest stars
Shine like diamonds in the dark
Seen all the wonders of the world
But I've never seen a smile

As beautiful as yours, ooh-ooh, yeah
Oh I thought I'd been everywhere
I'd climbed a mountain so high
Sailed the sea, crossed the sky
And still I was nowhere at all
Until that day, oh, you came to my senses
And your smile it made sense out of it all
(repeat 1)
A smile so beautiful, so beautiful
Come one time in a lifetime
A smile this beautiful
I never dreamed I'd ever see, ah, ah, ah
(rpt 1...)
A smile before as beautiful
As beautiful as yours

5. SOMEONE THAT I USED TO LOVE


[Songwriters: Gerry Goffin;Michael Masser]

When I wake up each morning trying to find myself
And if I'm ever the least unsure, I always remind myself
Though you're someone in this world that I'll always choose to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

As for me it's getting down to the last unspoken part
When you must begin to ease the pain of a broken heart
Tell me why should I even care if I have to lose your love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

Yet it wasn't enough for you
All the love I had to give
I did my best to keep you satisfied
I guess you'll never know how much I tried, I really tried

And if ever our paths should cross again

Well, you won't find me being the one to get lost again
Once I had so much to give but you just refused my love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

I did my best to keep you satisfied
I guess you'll never know how much I tried, I really tried

When I wake up each morning trying to find myself
And if I'm ever the least unsure, I always remind myself
Though you're someone in this world that I'll always choose to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

Though you're someone in this world that I'll always choose to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love
From now on you're only someone that I used to love

7. NEEDING YOU



Needing you, wanting you, I just don't know what I'm gonna do
To tell the truth it just ain't no use, my mind ain't strong enough
To forget about you, oh baby, hey, here I am trying to be proud
Trying to fool myself with this unreal smile, telling everyone
That I no longer cling to you, but I know myself that can't be true, oh
How can I forget a love I've known for so long
The heart may not remember, but the mind goes on and on
And the more I think about it the worse off I get
Something keeps telling me you ain't seen nothing yet

I'm needing you, wanting you, I just don't know what I'm gonna do
Now that you're gone, how can I go on, the same love that made me smile
Right now it makes me blue, oh, how can I get you back, I need you here so bad
The neighbors say since you've been away, I seem to be so sad
You know they're right, I can't stand to be out of your site
You need to be here close to me to lift these lonely nights
I'm needing you, wanting you, oh I just don't know what I'm gonna do, ooh, no
To tell the truth, it just ain't no use, my mind ain't strong enough to forget about you
Baby, baby, I'm sure needing you, yes, I'm wanting you
You know I just can't stand it, it just ain't no use, ain't no use

8. I CAN'T SAY 'NO"


Here I am, there you are
If you ask me to walk a thousand miles
Just to be where you are
I can't say no if you ask me

If I had a dime, it's yours as well as mine
I'd keep the penny, you know I would
And gladly give you the nine
I can't say no if you asked me

If you told me tonight to get up
Pack my bags, let's go away
I wouldn't even care what my Mommy
What my Daddy might have to say
'Cause I can't say no if you ask me

Oh, no, you're too beautiful to be to be
(You know I can't say it, baby, no)
You mean everything to me
(No, ifs and no maybeŠŐ» No)

And that's why I that's why I
That's why I that's why
(You know I can't say it, baby)
I can't say no if you ask me

Sometimes I get so angry
I walk around and I pout all day
And then he kisses me

And asks me do I love him
In a sweet, soft, sexy kind of way
I can't say no if he asks me

Ooh no, I can't say no if he asks me
I can't say no if you ask me
Baby, baby, baby
I can't say no if you ask me

I can't say no if you ask me
I can't say no if you ask me
I can't say no if you ask me

12. JUST CAN'T STAY AWAY


Here I am baby, right back in your arms, yeah
What is it 'bout your love that draws me to you
And though this is not the first time I've ever wanted to get away, no
Oh, but the magic of your love just would not let me stray
So I find that I just can't stay away from you, baby, (from you) ooh, yeah
You see, I just can't stay away from you
Let me tell you I've been through a lot of changes
You see, my momma scorned me and my closest friends
Oh lord, you know they warned me
They said you're no good for me, but I just ignored it
Yes I did, 'cause I didn't have time, no time to sit around and decide what to do
You know, when someone controls your mind
There's not much you can do
So you see that's why I (just can't) just can't stay away (stay away)
Oh, oh (from you) from you, oh baby
Hold me darling, hold (just can't) me darling, I can't stay away from (stay away) you
I don't wanna (from you) from you
I've tried and I've tried, and I've tried, I've tried and I've tried, and I've tried, baby

(when you come close to me, yeah)
I remember, I can remember somebody said it
They said it many, many, many (when you come close to me, yeah) years ago
That when love gets in your blood, you'll find it's hard to let go
And oh, I (just can't) baby, I (stay away)
Can't (from you) you see it in my eyes
'cause I'm wanting you, needing you, ho
Baby, I (just can't) I don't wanna (stay away)
Stay away (from you) from you
From you, you, you, you, you
It's not in my power to leave you
You control the soul in me and I
(just can't) that's exactly why I (stay away)
Can't stay away (from you) from you
Oh 'cause I'm wanting you, needing you, loving you
Baby, I'm down on my knees, (I just can't) hold me darling
I'm (stay away) begging you please, hold me, darling
(from you) 'cause I just can't stay from you, baby, no, no...

13. THE URGE TO MERGE


Though I think I really know you
And you think you know me
And we're as close at two people
Could ever hope to be
Still I can't escape the feeling
That no matter what I do
I'll never understand what it feels like to be you
I get the urge to know you better
To make our spirits one
I want to see us be together
As close as we can come
I get the urge to merge
I get the urge to merge with you
I get the urge to merge
I get the urge to merge with you
Have you ever wanted something
You just had to possess
And it turned into obsession
And wouldn't let you rest
There are times I can't help wishing
I could melt right into you
Hear every word you're thinking
Feel everything you do
I feel trapped inside my body
And there's nothing I can do
Want to leap across the wall
That's keeping me from you
To break what can't be broken
To say what can't be spoken
If only for a moment
To touch your soul
I get the urge to know you better

VIDEO



14. I WISH YOU LOVE

Good-bye, no use leading with our chins
This is where our story ends
Never lovers, ever friends
Good-bye, let our hearts call it a day
But before you walk away
I sincerely want to say
I wish you bluebirds in the spring
To give your heart a song to sing
And then a kiss, but more than this
I wish you love
And in July a lemonade
To cool you in some leafy glade
I wish you health
But more than wealth
I wish you love
My breaking heart and I agree
That you and I could never be
So with my best
My very best
I set you free
I wish you shelter from the storm
A cozy fire to keep you warm
But most of all when snowflakes fall
I wish you love
But most of all when snowflakes fall
I wish you love
I wish you love, love, love, love, love
I wish you love
I really wish you love, really wish you love

15. TEACH ME TONIGHT

[Talking]
Excuse me, did you call yourself a love expert?
Studied, graduated and qualified to show me what it's all about?
Oh honey, talk is cheap, you're gonna have to convince me.

[Singing]
Did you say I've got a lot to learn
Well don't think I'm trying not to learn
Right here is the perfect spot to learn
Teach me tonight

Starting with the ABC of it
Right down to the XYZ of it
Teach me the whole mystery of it
Teach me tonight

Well the sky's a black board high above us
And if a shooting star should fly by
I'll take that star and write "I love you"
"I love you" a thousand times across the sky

One thing isn't very clear, my love
Should the teacher stand so near, my love
Graduation's almost here, my love
Come on and teach me tonight

[Interlude]

The sky's a blackboard high above you
And if a shooting star should fly by
I'll take that star and write "I love you"
A thousand times across the sky

Ahh, one thing, one thing isn't very clear
Should no teacher stand so near
Graduation's almost here
Come on and teach me tonight

Graduation's almost here, my love
Teach me, teach me tonight

Ohhh Ohh
