Track Name: Come Rain or Come Shine
Come Rain Or Come Shine
Johnny Mercer/Harold Arlen

I'm gonna love you like nobody's loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain
Deep as a river
Come rain or Come Shine

I guess when you met me
It was just one of those things
But don't ever bet me
‘Cause I'm gonna be true if you let me

You're gonna love me like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
Happy together
Unhappy together
Won't that be fine

Days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine
Track Name: This Is I
This Is I
Malene Kjærgård

Sun is rising at my feet
All I dreamt is obsolete
Follow your heart you said and left me here

As the sun lights up the sky
All I want to do is fly
Over the rainbow away from this place

Dragging me down lifting me high
This is I
Pushing me forward pulling be back
This is I

Every time I see your face
How I long for your embrace
Memories of absence so clear in my mind

A nightingale can’t be replaced
By a fake that sings engaged
Neither can I you’ll notice when I’m gone

Dragging me down lifting me high
This is I
Pushing me forward pulling be back
This is I

I search for a place where I can breathe
Track Name: Spring Is Here
Spring Is Here
Malene Kjærgård

The sun returns the birds get busy
And everyone returns my smiles
It’s all the love that makes me dizzy
And lights up my heart

Spring is here, my dear
How I’d love to hold you near
Let’s not forget that two hearts met
Let’s walk hand in hand

Cherry trees blossom and my feet
Long to dance when we romance
And though it seem just like a dream
I know it’s real

Should I ever lose you
I would feel way beyond blue
But I tell myself
You wouldn’t want someone else

Whenever you smile
My heart stops beating for a while
The butterflies I feel inside
Mean spring is here, my dear
Track Name: Ladies Who Lunch
Ladies Who Lunch
Stephen Sondheim

I’d like to propose a toast

Here's to the ladies who lunch
Everybody laugh
Lounging in their caftans
And planning a brunch
On their own behalf

Off to the gym
Then to a fitting
Claiming they're fat
And looking grim
'Cause they've been sitting
Choosing a hat
Does anyone still wear a hat
I'll drink to that

And here's to the girls who play smart
Aren't they a gas
Rushing to their classes
In optical art
Wishing it would pass

Another long exhausting day
Another thousand dollars
A matinee, a Pinter play
Perhaps a piece of Mahler's
I'll drink to that
And one for Mahler

And here's to the girls who play wife
Aren't they too much
Keeping house but clutching
A copy of LIFE
Just to keep in touch

The ones who follow the rules
And meet themselves at the schools
Too busy to know that they're fools
Aren't they a gem
I'll drink to them
Let's all drink to them

And here's to the girls who just watch
Aren't they the best
When they get depressed
It's a bottle of Scotch
Plus a little jest

Another chance to disapprove
Another brilliant zinger
Another reason not to move
Another vodka stinger
I'll drink to that

So here's to the girls on the go
Everybody tries
Look into their eyes
And you'll see what they know
Everybody dies

A toast to that invincible bunch
The dinosaurs surviving the crunch
Let's hear it for the ladies who lunch
Everybody rise
Rise….
Track Name: These Boots Are Made For Walking
These Boots Are Made For Walking
Lee Hazlewood

You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
You've been a'messin' where you shouldn't 've been a'messin'
And now someone else is getting all your best
Well, these boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over…

You keep lyin' when you oughta be truthin'
You keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin' when you oughta be a'changin'
What's right is right but you ain't been right yet
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep playing where you shouldn't be playing
And you keep thinking that you'll never get burnt
Well, I've just found me a brand new box of matches
And what he knows you ain't had time to learn
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
Track Name: The Beauty Of It All
The Beauty Of It All
Malene Kjærgård

Summer has come to remind us
Of the joy that light can bring
Winter was there to enlighten us
Make our moaning hearts sing
Autumn reminds us that all things must pass
Spring is there to remind us
That darkness don’t last

That’s the beauty of it all
How I do recall
Pain and joy jo hand in hand
But you’ll catch me if I fall
That’s the beauty of it all
When I’m feeling small
I trust that I was planned to be
In this picture after all
Track Name: I'm a Girl
I’m A Girl
Malene Kjærgård

I move to fast
Then stumble can’t hold on
To the path
I create and try to follow
I’m a girl
Dreaming of too much you might say
On the other hand
There’s just too much in my way

I’m moving slow
Taking one step at a time
Breathing In
Trusting that I’m doing fine
I’m a girl
Dreaming of a place to be free
A place for me to breath
Somewhere I can be me

How can you say
Walk the right way
Who decides what’s right for me
And how can I go
Into the great unknown
Will I ever find my way
Track Name: Throw It Away
Throw It Away
Abbey Lincoln

I think about the life I live
A figure made of clay
And think about the things I lost
The things I gave away

And when I'm in a certain mood
I search the house and look
One night I found these magic words
In a magic book

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day
And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
'Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you

There's a hand to rock the cradle
And a hand to help us stand
With a gentle kind of motion
As it moves across the land

And the hand's unclenched and open
Gifts of life and love it brings
So keep your hand wide open
If you need anything

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day
And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
'Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you

SOLI

There's a natural obligation
To what we hold and claim
Possessing and belonging to
Acknowledging a name

So keep your hand wide open
If you're needing love today
'Cause you can't lose it even if you
Throw it all away

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day
And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
'Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you
Track Name: Put On a Happy Face
Put On A Happy Face
Lee Adams/Charles Strouse
(Bye Bye Birdie)

Grey skies are gonna clear up
Put on a happy face
Brush off the clouds and cheer up
Put on a happy face

Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy
It's not your style
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
You decide to smile

Pick out a pleasant outlook
Stick out that noble chin
Wipe off that "full of doubt" look
Slap on a happy grin

And spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face

SOLI

Grey skies are gonna clear up
Put on a happy face
Brush off the clouds and cheer up
Put on a happy face

Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy
It's not your style
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
You decide to smile

I knew a girl so gloomy
She'd never laugh or sing
She wouldn't listen to me
Now she's a mean old thing

So spread sunshine all over the place
And put on a happy face
Track Name: Move Along
Move Along
Malene Kjærgård

How can I move along
When all there was
Is gone

How can I breathe in space
Nothing left
Not a trace

Holding on to tight to something
That will never be
More than just a vague memory

How can I let go of everything
I felt for you
I don’t want to face the truth

How can I sing this song
It’s made for you
But you are gone
Track Name: The More I See You
The More I See You
Malene Kjærgård/Mack Gordon/Harry Warren

My mamma always told me to watch out for the bad guys
And daddy always told me don’t fall in love too soon
They warned me that this thing called love could be quite tempting
But girl you should be able to control yourself
Well nothing can be done about the fact that I feel
Into your arms, that I’m under your spell

The more I see you, the more I want you
Somehow this feeling, just grows and grows
With every sigh, I become more mad about you
More lost without you and so it goes

Can you imagine how much I love you
The more I see you as years go by
I know the only one for me can only be you
My arms won't free you, my heart won't try
Track Name: When Will I See You Again
When Will I See You Again
Malene Kjærgård

Everytime I see you my heart starts beating
Like a drum ’cause you’re the one I’m attracted to
The blood starts dancing in my vains
When will I see you again?

And everytime I tell myself that it is foolish
I can’t stop picturing you in my head
My knees get weak and I can’t stand
When will I see you again?

Though I know that you belong to her
I will do my best to make you think
That though you call it love it never were
And that I’m the only one for you

And even when you’re leaving for a nice vacation
Somewhere pretty and her eyes will be as blue as the sea
I know it’s me you’re thinking off
When will I see you again?

And even though you never call or write a letter
I will never doubt you plan to leave her soon
I will be safe here in your arms
But when will I see you again?

Yes, I know that you belong to her
I will do my best to make you think
That though you call it love it never were
And that I’m the only one for you
