Me singing “Daughters” by John Mayer (recorded May 10, 2019)

https://instaud.io/3HOB

Lyrics~~~
I know a girl
She puts the color inside of my world
But, she’s just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change
And I’ve done all I can
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hand
Now I’m starting to see
Maybe It’s got nothing to do with me
Fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
Oh, you see that skin?
It’s the same she’s been standing in
Since the day she saw him walking away
Now she’s left cleaning up the mess he made
So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
Boys, you can break
You’ll find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong
And boys soldier on
But boys would be gone without warmth from
A woman’s good, good heart
On behalf of every man
Looking out for every girl
You are the God and weight of her world
So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
So mothers be good to your daughters, too

Me singing “One Night Only” by John Barrowman, from Broadway musical “Dreamgirls” (recorded May 10, 2019)

https://instaud.io/3HOj

Lyrics~~~
You want all my love and my devotion
You want my love and soul, right on the line
I have no doubt that I could love you, forever
The only trouble is, you really don’t have the time
You’ve got one night only, one night only
That’s all you have to spare
One night only
Let’s not pretend to care
One night only, one night only
Come on, big baby, come on
One night only
We only have ’til dawn
In the morning this feeling will be gone
It has no chance going on
Something so right has got no chance to live
So let’s forget about chances, it’s one night I will give
One night only, one night only
You’ll be the only one
One night only
Then you have to run
One night only, one night only
There’s nothing more to say
One night only
Words get in the way
One night only
One night only
One night only

Me singing “I Know Him So Well” by Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson, from musical “Chess” (recorded May 17, 2019)

https://instaud.io/3HNU

Lyrics~~~
Nothing it so good it lasts eternally.
Perfect situations must go wrong.
But this has never yet prevented me,
Wanting far too much for far too long.
Looking back, I could have played it differently,
Learned about the man before I fell,
But it took time to understand the man,
Now at least I know I know him well.
Wasn’t it good
(Oh so good)
Wasn’t it fine
(Oh so fine)
Isn’t it madness
He can’t be mine.
But in the end he needs a little bit more than me
(More security)
He needs his fantasies and freedom
I know him so well.
No one in your life is with you constantly
No one is completely on your side,
And though I move my world to be with him,
Still the gap between him is too much.
Looking back I could have played it differently,
One or a few more who can tell,
But I was ever so much younger then,
Now at least I know I know him well.
Wasn’t it good
(Oh so good)
Wasn’t it fine
(oh so fine)
Isn’t it madness
He can’t be mine.
Didn’t I know,
How it would go from the start If I knew,
Why am I falling apart.
Wasn’t it good
Wasn’t it fine
Isn’t it madness,
He can’t be mine.
But in the end he needs a little bit more than me.
(More security)
He needs his fantasies and freedom.
I know him so well.
It took time to understand him.
I know him so well

Me singing “Oh What a Circus” from Andrew Lloyd Webber musical “Evita” (recorded May 17, 2019)

https://instaud.io/3HNM

Lyrics~~~
Oh what a circus, oh what a show
Argentina has gone to town
Over the death of an actress called Eva Peron
We’ve all gone crazy
Mourning all day and mourning all night
Falling over ourselves to get all of the misery right
Oh what an exit, that’s how to go
When they’re ringing your curtain down
Demand to be buried like Eva Peron
It’s quite a sunset
And good for the country in a roundabout way
We’ve made the front page of all the world’s papers today
But who is this Santa Evita?
Why all this howling, hysterical sorrow?
What kind of goddess has lived among us?
How will we ever get by without her?

Me singing “Ha Yat Jaam Tin Hau/Next Stop: Tin Hau” by legendary Cantopop duo Twins, from movie “Diva: Ah Hey” (recorded May 17, 2019)

Translation

Standing in front of Daimaru, carefully looking down my path,
If I were to be queen at the next station, that would be great.
But on the road to stardom, if suddenly I become scared of heights,
Would he still hug me from behind?
The lovers on Paterson Street are brimming with pride.
It might not be better to be allowed to sing freely on stage.
Fame, like soap bubbles, quickly disappears.
Even if I one day have a concert, he who wants to sing won’t be able to get to the venue.
Still, I feel like I have lived in vain. If I don’t love, how can I sing?
How can I sing all of the love songs? How can I light up the stage?
It’s so different than singing tenderly to my loved one.

Me singing “Kimi wo Nosete/Carrying You” by Azumi Inoue, Hayao Miyazaki classic “Laputa: Castle in the Sky” (recorded May 19, 2019)

Lyrics~~~
Ano chiheisen / Kagayaku no wa
Doko ka ni kimi wo / Kakushite iru kara
Takusan no hi ga / Natsukashii no wa
Ano doreka hitotsu ni
Kimi ga iru kara
Within those glittering lights on the horizon,
you must be hiding somewhere.
When I see those twinkling stars
I feel nostalgic because
I know you are in one of them.
Saa, dekakeyou!
Hitokire no PAN
NAIFU, RANPU kaban ni
Tsumekonde
Let’s set out,
pack a bag with
a piece of bread,
a knife, a lamp,
Tousan ga nokoshita / Atsui omoi
Kaasan ga kureta / Ano manazashi
The passion that my father left me,
That look that my mother gave me.
Chikyuu wa mawaru / Kimi o kakushite
Kagayaku hitomi / Kirameku tomoshibi
Chikyuu wa mawaru / Kimi o nosete
Itsuka kitto deau / Bokura o nosete
The earth is spinning, concealing you
Your eyes are shining in the glittering light
The earth is spinning, carrying you
carrying us who shall meet someday.
Toosan ga nokoshita / Atsui omoi
Kaasan ga kureta / Ano manazashi
This passion is that my father gave me,
That look my mother gave me.
Chikyuu wa mawaru / Kimi o kakushite
Kagayaku hitomi / Kirameku tomoshibi
Chikyuu wa mawaru / Kimi o nosete
Itsuka kitto deau / Bokura o nosete
The earth is spinning, concealing you
Your eyes are shining in the glittering light
The earth is spinning, carrying you,
carrying us who shall meet someday.

Me singing “Loch Lomond” by John Barrowman (recorded June 29, 2017)

Lyrics~~~

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes
Where the sun shines bright on loch lomond
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o’ loch lomond

O ye’ll tak’ the high road and I’ll tak’ the low road
And I’ll be in scotland afore ye
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o’ loch lomond

‘T was there that we parted in yon shady glen
On the steep, steep side o’ ben lomond
Where in deep purple hue, the hieland hills we view
And the moon comin’ out in the gloamin’
O ye’ll tak’ the high road and I’ll tak’ the low road
And I’ll be in scotland afore ye
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o’ loch lomond
