IMPLEMENTASI, KREATIVITAS DAN INOVASI SEBAGAI GURU

Pendidikan dalam konsep pengembangan masyarakat merupakan dinamisasi dalam pengembangan manusia yang beradab. Pendidikan tidak hanya terbatas berperan pada pengalihan ilmu pengetahuan (transfer of knowledge) saja, namun dalam Undang-undang No: 20 tahun 2003 tentang Sistim Pendidikan Nasional yang menyebutkan bahwa pendidikan memiliki fungsi mengembangkan kemampuan dan membentuk watak serta peradaban bangsa yang bermartabat dalam rangka mencerdaskan kehidupan bangsa, bertujuan untuk berkembangnya potensi peserta didik agar menjadi manusia yang beriman dan bertakwa kepada Tuhan Yang Maha Esa, berakhlak mulia, sehat, berilmu, cakap, kreatif, mandiri, dan menjadi warga negara yang demokratis serta bertanggungjawab. Dari fungsi dan tujuan pendidikan ini diharapkan manusia Indonesia adalah manusia yang berimbang antara segi kognitif, afektif dan psikomotor.

Oleh karena itu pengembangan profesionalitas dan pemberian motivasi kepada para guru perlu dilakukan secara terus menerus dan berkelanjutan. Kreativitas dan inovasi dalam memajukan sekolah. Dalam rangka melakukan peran dan fungsinya sebagai inovator, kepala sekolah harus memiliki strategi yang tepat untuk menjalin hubungan yang harmonis dengan lingkungan, mencari gagasan baru, mengintegrasikan setiap kegiatan memberikan teladan kepada seluruh tenaga kependidikan di sekolah, dan mengembangkan model-model pembelajaran yang kreatif dan inovatif dalam rangka memajukan sekolahnya.

Kreativitas

Penerapan kurikulum tingkat satuan pendidikan (KTSP) di setiap sekolah setingkat SD, SMP dan SMA, akan membuat guru semakin pintar, karena mereka dituntut harus mampu merencanakan sendiri materi pelajarannya untuk mencapai kompetensi yang telah ditetapkan. Kurikulum yang selama ini dibuat dari pusat, menyebabkan kreativitas guru kurang terpupuk, tetapi dengan KTSP, kreativitas guru bisa berkembang. Hal ini berkaitan dengan munculnya KTSP 2006 sebagai pengganti kurikulum berbasis kompetensi (KBK) 2004.

Dengan semangat otonomi dan desentralisasi, KTSP memberi keleluasaan sekolah untuk mengembangkan kurikulum sendiri. KTSP sebenarnya positif, sebab sekolah diberikan otonomi untuk berdiskusi terkait dengan standar kompetensi yang dikembangkan.

Hanya saja, sebagian besar guru belum terbiasa untuk mengembangkan model-model kurikulum. Selama ini mereka diperintah untuk melaksanakan kewajiban yang sudah baku, yakni kurikulum yang dibuat dari pusat. Implementasi KTSP sebenarnya membutuhkan penciptaan iklim pendidikan yang memungkinkan tumbuhnya semangat intelektual dan ilmiah bagi setiap guru, mulai dari rumah, di sekolah, maupun di masyarakat. Hal ini berkaitan adanya pergeseran peran guru yang semula lebih sebagai instruktur dan kini menjadi fasilitator pembelajaran. Guru dapat melakukan upaya-upaya kreatif serta inovatif dalam bentuk penelitian tindakan terhadap berbagai teknik atau model pengelolaan pembelajaran yang mampu menghasilkan lulusan yang kompeten. Penerapan KTSP tersebut berimplikasi pada bertambahnya beban bagi guru.

Penerapan KTSP mengandaikan guru bisa membuat kurikulum untuk tiap mata pelajaran, padahal, selama ini guru sudah terbiasa mengikuti kurikulum yang ditetapkan pemerintah. Belum lagi mengingat kualitas guru yang kurang merata di setiap daerah. “Ini artinya, KTSP menghadapi kendala daya kreativitas dan beragamnya kapasitas guru untuk membuat sendiri kurikulum. Pemberdayaan guru belum dilakukan sepenuhnya oleh pemerintah daerah (pemda). Misalnya, pemda belum melakukan evaluasi pendidikan yang baik dan benar, termasuk evaluasi guru. “Ini yang kerap terjadi, sehingga penerapan KTSP pun bisa melambat. Karena itu, pemda sebaiknya agresif dalam melakukan percepatan penerapan KTSP.

Inovasi

Berbicara mengenai inovasi (pembaharuan) mengingatkan kita pada istilah invention dan discovery. Invention adalah penemuan sesuatu yang benar-benar baru artinya hasil karya manuasia. Discovery adalah penemuan sesuatu (benda yang sebenarnya telah ada sebelumnya. Dengan demikian, inovasi dapat diartikan usaha menemukan benda yang baru dengan jalan melakukan kegiatan (usaha) invention dan discovery. Dalam kaitan ini inovasi adalah penemuan yang dapat berupa sesuatu ide, barang, kejadian, metode yang diamati sebagai sesuatu hal yang baru bagi seseorang atau sekelompok orang (masyarakat). Inovasi dapat berupa hasil dari invention atau discovery. Inovasi dilakukan dengan tujuan tertentu atau untuk memecahkan masalah.

Pelaksanaaan inovasi pendidikan seperti inovasi kurikulum tidak dapat dipisahkan dari inovator dan pelaksana inovasi itu sendiri. Inovasi pendidikan seperti yang dilakukan di Depdiknas yang disponsori oleh lembaga-lembaga asing cenderung merupakan “Top-Down Inovation”. Inovasi ini sengaja diciptakan oleh atasan sebagai usaha untuk meningkatkan mutu pendidikan atau pemerataan kesempatan untuk memperoleh pendidikan, ataupun sebagai usaha untuk meningkatkan efisiensi dan sebaginya. Inovasi seperti ini dilakukan dan diterapkan kepada bawahan dengan cara mengajak, menganjurkan dan bahkan memaksakan apa yang menurut pencipta itu baik untuk kepentingan bawahannya. Dan bawahan tidak punya otoritas untuk menolak pelaksanaannya.

Banyak contoh inovasi yang dilakukan oleh Depdiknas selama beberpa dekade terakhir ini, seperti Cara Belajar Siswa Aktif (CBSA), Guru Pamong, Sekolah Persiapan Pembangunan, Guru Pamong, Sekolah kecil, Sistem Pengajaran Modul, Sistem Belajar jarak jauh dan lain-lain. Namun inovasi yang diciptakan oleh Depdiknas bekerjasama dengan. Lembaga-lembaga asing seperti British Council. USAID dan lain-lain banyak yang tidak bertahan lama dan hilang, tenggelam begitu saja. Model inovasi yang demikian hanya berjalan dengan baik pada waktu berstatus sebagai proyek. Tidak sedikit model inovasi seperti itu, pada saat diperkenalkan atau bahkan selama pelaksanaannya banyak mendapat penolakan (resistance) bukan hanya dari pelaksana inovasi itu sendiri (di sekolah), tapi juga para pemerhati dan administrator di Kanwil dan Kandep. Model inovasi seperti yang diuraikan di atas, lazimnya disebut dengan model ‘Top-Down Innovation”. Model itu kebalikan dari model inovasi yang diciptakan berdasarkan ide, pikiran, kreasi, dan inisiatif dari sekolah, guru atau masyarakat yang umumnya disebut model “Bottom-Up Innovation”

Ada inovasi yang juga dilakukan oleh guru-guru, yang disebut dengan “Bottom-Up Innovation”. Model yang kedua ini jarang dilakukan di Indonesia selama ini karena sitem pendidikan yang sentralistis. Pembahasan tentang model inovasi seperti model “Top-Down” dan “Bottom-Up” telah banyak dilakukan oleh para peneliti dan para ahli pendidikan. Sudah banyak pembahasan tentang inovasi pendidikan yang dilakukan misalnya perubahan kurikulum dan proses belajar mengajar. White (1988: 136-156) misalnya menguraikan beberapa aspek yang bekaitan dengan inovasi seperti tahapan-tahapan dalam inovasi, karakteristik inovasi, manajemen inovasi dan sistem pendekatannya.

Bangsa kita saat ini sedang mendapat amanah yang cukup berat, yakni meningkatkan mutu pendidikan di tanah air. Pengalaman dengan hasil UN tahun yang memprihatinkan, cukup menyadarkan kita bahwa mutu pendidikan di Indonesia belum menunjukkan hasil yang menggembirakan. Namun demikian kita perlu berkecil hati dengan realitas yang ada, kita perlu mengevaluasi diri sejauh manakah peran kita masing-masing sudah sesuai dengan tugas dan tanggung jawab kita? Upaya-upaya strategis dalam meningkatkan mutu pendidikan di Sekolah Dasar yang telah diuraikan di atas hanya sebagian pemikiran-pemikiran untuk memperbaiki kinerja kita selama ini. Hanya dengan menjalin kerja sama yang baik dalam networking, kemitraan dan bertugas sesuai dengan tugas, pokok dan fungsi masing-masing diharapkan tugas yang mulia ”mencerdaskan kehidupan bangsa” kita ini dapat tercapai.Amin.

SISTEM DALAM PENDIDIKAN

by Onen saranjana



Sebelum masuknya pendidikan kolonial, bangsa Indonesia sesungguhnya adalah bangsa yang terdidik. Hal tersebut terbukti dengan tumbuh suburnya pendidikan yang bersifat tradisional dan tersebar di seluruh nusantara, yang ditandai dengan berkembangnya penggunaan huruf lontara dan tradisi mengaji.. Pengajaran Islam di langgar-langgar semakin mengukuhkan keberadaan pendidikan tradisioanl tersebut. Namun demikian, pendidikan tradisional mengalami pergeseran ke pendidikan kolonial, khususnya ketika pemerintah kolonial Belanda membutuhkan pegawai-pegawai administrasi rendahan untuk mengisi pos-pos pemerintahannya. Oleh karena itu, sistem yang diterapkannya tidak lepas dari tujuan politiknya dalam usaha mempertahakankan kekuasaan. Dengan demikian, tidaklah mengherankan jika pendidikan tersebut menjadi alat untuk memantapkan hegemoninya, dan melahirkan elit-elit baru yang nasionalis serta menjadi bumerang bagi kekuasaannya.


Pengertian Sistem
Dari segi Etimologi, kata sistem sebenarnya berasal dari Bahasa Yunani yaitu “Systema”, yang dalam Bahasa Inggris dikenal dengan “SYSTEM”, yang mempunyai satu pengertian yaitu sehimpunan bagian atau komponen yang saling berhubungan secara teratur dan merupakan satu keseluruhan yang tidak terpisahkan.
Menurut filsuf Stoa, bahwa sistem adalah gabungan dari keseluruhan langit dan bumi yang bekerja bersama-sama, sehingga dapat kita lihat bahwa sistem terdiri dari unsur-unsur yang bekerja sama membentuk suatu keseluruhan dan apabila salah satu unsur tersebut hilang atau tidak berfungsi, maka gabungan keseluruhan tersebut tidak dapat lagi kita sebut suatu sistem. Berikut ini adalah definisi kata Sistem menurut beberapa para ahli.
1. Buckley
Sistem adalah suatu kebulatan atau totalitas yang berfungsi secara utuh, disebabkan adanya saling ketergantungan diantara bagian-bagiannya. (A whole that functions as a whole by virtue of interdependence of its parts).
2. H. Kerzner
Sistem adalah sekelompok komponen yang terdiri dari manusia dan/atau bukan manusia (non-human) yang diorganisir dan diatur sedemikian rupa sehingga komponen-komponen tersebut dapat bertindak sebagai satu kesatuan dalam mencapai tujuan, sasaran bersama atau hasil akhir. Pengertian ini, mengandung arti pentingnya aspek pengaturan dan pengorganisasian komponen dari suatu sistem untuk mencapai sasaran bersama, karena bila tidak ada sinkronisasi dan koordinasi yang tepat, maka kegiatan masing-masing komponen, sub-sistem, atau bidang dalam suatu organisasi akan kurang saling mendukung.

3. B.S. Blanchard (1990)
Engineering System adalah aplikasi yang efektif dari usaha-usaha ilmu pengetahuan dan engineering dalam rangka mewujudkan kebutuhan operasional menjadi suatu sistem konfigurasi tertentu, melalui proses yang saling terkait berupa definisi keperluan analisis fungsional, sintesis, optimasi, desain, tes, dan evaluasi.
Selanjutnya pengertian sistem ini pada kenyataannya juga dipakai untuk menunjukan banyak hal seperti:
Sistem yang digunakan untuk menunjukan suatu kumpulan dan himpunan benda-benda yang disatukan atau dipadukan oleh suatu bentuk saling hubung atau saling ketergantungan yang teratur; sesuatu himpunan bagian-bagian yang tergabungkan secara alamiah maupun oleh budi daya manusia sehingga menjadi suatu kesatuan yang bulat dan terpadu; suatu keseluruhan yang terorganisasikan atau sesuatu yang organik; atau juga yang berfungsi bekerja atau bergerak secara serentak bersama-sama bahkan sering bergeraknya itu mengikuti suatu kontrol tertentu.
Dari uraian di atas pemakaian sistem dapat digolongkan secara garis besar pada dua golongan pemakaian yaitu: Menunjukan pada suatu bentuk fisik, sesuatu wujud benda, abstrak maupun konkrit termasuk juga konsepsi yang dikenal dengan deskriptif. Menunjukan suatu metode atau tata-cara yang dikenal dengan preskriptif
Sistem paling sering digunakan untuk menunjukan pengertian metode atau cara dan sesuatu himpunan unsur atau komponen yang saling berhubungan satu sama lain menjadi satu kesatuan.
Konsep pengertian sistem sebagai suatu metode ini dikenal dalam pengertian umum sebagai pendekatan sistem yang merupakan penerapan metode ilmiah dalam memecahkan suatu masalah. Ada banyak penyebab atas terjadinya sesuatu masalah. Jadi pendekatan sistem menyadari adanya kerumitan di dalam kebanyakan permasalahan. Misalnya dalam kasus suatu kecelakaan mobil kita tidak bisa menganggap terjadinya kecelakaan akibat mobil dijalankan ngebut. Apabila dikaji lebih cermat banyak faktor yang dapat menjadi penyebab kecelakaan mobil. Secara singkat dapat dikatakan bahwa banyak manfaat yang kita peroleh dengan mengambil kesimpulan atau keputusan secara sistematik ini.





INPUT SEKOLAH
Input adalah segala sesuatu yang harus tersedia dan siap karena dibutuhkan untuk berlangsungnya proses. Sesuatu yang dimaksud tidak harus berupa barang, tetapi juga dapat berupa perangkat-perangkat lunak dan harapan-harapan sebagai pemandu bagi berlangsungnya proses. Secara garis besar, input dapat diklarifikasikan menjadi tiga, yaitu harapan, sumberdaya, dan input manajemen. Harapan-harapan terdiri dari visi, misi, tujuan, sasaran. Sumberdaya dibagi menjadi dua yaitu sumberdaya manusia dan sumberdaya selebihnya (uang, peralatan, perlengkapan, bahan). Input manajemen terdiri dari tugas, rencana, program, regulasi (ketentuan-ketentuan, limitasi, prosedur kerja, dan sebagainya), dan pengendalian atau tindakan turun tangan. Essensi evaluasi pada input adalah untuk mendapatkan informasi tentang ketersediaan dan kesiapan input sebagai prasyarat untuk berlangsungnya proses.

Tentang Siswa
Guru dalam tugas rutinnya memang menghadapi banyak persoalan. Hal ini disebabkan berbagai faktor yang kadangkala tidak sesuai harapan. Keadaan satu sekolah dengan sekolah yang lain amatlah berbeda. Ada sekolah yang memiliki sarana dan prasarana yang baik dan ada juga yang tidak Kondisi sekolah demikian membuat guru menghadapi kesulitan demi kesulitan.
Selain masalah sarana dan prasarana, guru juga menghadapi input siswa yang beragam. Keberagaman ini disebabkan oleh kondisi lingkungan sosial dan ekonomi masyarakat. Status sosial masyarakat telah menyebabkan input siswa berbeda di setiap sekolah. Sekolah yang berada di daerah pinggiran atau pedesaan akan beda dengan yang ada di kota.
Ada anak yang lahir dari keluarga kaya, berpendidikan tinggi, atau berpangkat. Namun banyak dianatara mereka yang datang dari kelaurga miskin, tak berpendidikan, atau orang kebanyakan saja. Keadaan status sosial ini amat berpengaruh terhadap keadaan anak.
Bukan itu saja, keadaan alam juga mempengaruhi prilaku siswa. Mereka yang hidup di sepanjang pantai akan beda dengan yang hidup di kaki gunung. Mereka yang hidup di tengah kota, akan beda dengan di kampung. Keberagaman ini telah membuat input siswa berbeda pula di setiap sekolah.
Ada sekolah yang mendapat anak yang patuh-patuh dan cerdas-cerdas, namun sebaliknya juga ada yang memperoleh input anak nakal, brandal dan bodoh. Semua ini membuat guru makin pusing dalam tugasnya. Untuk menghadapi keberagaman ini, guru harus berusaha mencari metode, teknik dan cara yang tepat untuk menangani pendidikan mereka.
Di sekolah yang kebanyakan siswanya lemah dan nakal, misalnya, hasil belajar mereka akan sangat rendah. Tingkat kelulusan siswa akan sangat kecil jika dibandingkan dengan sekolah yang memiliki siswa yang cerdas dan patuh. Hal ini akan merusak citra guru. Semua yang terjadi dalam pembelajaran adalah tanggungjawab guru. Orang luar tak tahu apa yang terjadi di dalam lingkungan sekolah. Masyarakat yang mengirim anak ke sekolah hanya tahu bahwa anaknya harus pandai dan lulus dengan nilai yang baik. Proses belajar mengajar adalah urusan guru.



PROSES KEPENDIDIKAN DI SEKOLAH
Proses pendidikan merupakan kegiatan mobilitas segenap komponen pendidikan oleh pendidik terarah kepada pencapaian tujuan pendidikan, Kualitas proses pendidikan menggejala pada dua segi, yaitu kualitas komponen dan kualitas pengelolaannya , pengelolaan proses pendidikan meliputi ruang lingkup makro, meso, mikro. Adapun tujuan utama pemgelolaan proses pendidikan yaitu terjadinya proses belajar dan pengalaman belajar yang optimal.

1. Manusia
Berbicara tentang pendidikan, maka membahas perkembangan peradaban manusia. Perkembangan pendidikan manusia akan berpengaruh terhadap dinamika sosial-budaya masyarakatnya. Sejalan dengan itu, pendidikan akan terus mengalami perkembangan sesuai dengan perkembangan kebudayaan. Banyak pendapat para tokoh pendidikan yang kemudian berdampak terhadap peradaban manusia. Tulisan ini akan mendeskripsikan pendapat tentang arti pentingnya pendidikan bagi manusia, serta sasaran pendidikan secara umum di Indonesia.
Menghasilkan manusia Indonesia yang memadai merupakan keinginan insan pendidikan. Semua pendidik dan tenaga kependidikan di negeri ini harus memahami hal itu sehingga dalam melaksanakan setiap aktivitas belajar-mengajar, tidak hanya sekedar mentransfer ilmu pengetahuan kepada warga didik (warga belajar), tetapi kita harus membimbing mereka melalui melalui motivasi dan contoh keteladanan yang bermuara pada pembinaan sikap (behaviour) maupun etika/moral peserta didik ataupun warga belajar.

a. Tenaga Pengajar
Guru atau Tenaga Pengajar adalah salah satu unsur manusia dalam proses pendidikan. Dalam proses pendidikan di sebuah sekolah, guru memegang tugas ganda yaitu sebagai pengajar dan pendidik. Sebagai pengajar guru bertugas menuangkan sejumlah bahan pelajaran ke dalam otak anak didik, sedangkan sebagai pendidik guru bertugas membimbing dan membina anak didik agar menjadi manusia susila yang cakap, aktif, kreatif, mandiri, dan berakhlak mulia. Syaiful Bahri Djamarah dalam Psikologi Belajar berpendapat bahwa baik mengajar maupun mendidik merupakan tugas dan tanggung jawab guru sebagai tenaga profesional. Oleh sebab itu, tugas yang berat dari seorang guru ini pada dasarnya hanya dapat dilaksanakan oleh guru yang memiliki kompetensi profesional yang tinggi.
Guru memegang peranan sentral dalam proses belajar mengajar, untuk itu mutu pendidikan di suatu lembaga pendidikan Islam sangat ditentukan oleh kemampuan yang dimiliki seorang guru dalam menjalankan tugasnya. Menurut Zainal Aqib, guru merupakan faktor penentu bagi keberhasilan pendidikan di lembaga pendidikan, karena guru merupakan sentral serta sumber kegiatan belajar mengajar. Lebih lanjut dia menyatakan bahwa guru merupakan komponen yang berpengaruh dalam peningkatan mutu suatu proses pendidikan di lembaga pendidikan. Hal ini menunjukkan bahwa kemampuan atau kompetensi profesional dari seorang guru sangat menentukan mutu pendidikan. Kompetensi profesional guru berdasarkan hasil Tes Kompetensi Guru yang dilakukan Depertemen Pendidikan Nasional Direktorat Jenderal Pendidikan Dasar dan Menengah Direktorat Pendidikan Lanjutan Pertama yang bekerja sama dengan Pusat Penilaian Pendidikan pada Tahun 2003, menunjukkan bahwa rata-rata nilai kompetensi guru di Indonesia hanya mencapai 42,25 %. Angka ini masih relatif jauh di bawah standar nilai kompetensi minimal yang diharapkan yaitu 75 %.

b. Tenaga Administrasi
Peranan adalah bagian terpenting dari Sekolah. Peranan ialah kedudukan dan jabatan di Sekolah. Di Sekolah, ada yang berperan sebagai Kepala Sekolah, guru, siswa, dan tenaga kependidikan termasuk Tenaga Administrasi. Semua peranan sama pentingnya dan saling mendukung untuk mencapai tujuan Sekolah. Peranan memiliki sejumlah harapan terutama kewajiban, tanggung jawab, dan hak. Peranan kadang-kadang berkonflik dengan kepribadian.
Peranan Tenaga Administrasi adalah sebagai: administrator, personal, dan sosial. Peranan Kepala Tenaga Administrasi adalah sebagai administrator, personal, dan sosial, dan manajer. Peranan sebagai administrator memiliki subperanan sebagai collector, reporter, programmer, duplicator, calculator, sender, archivist, communicator, technician, expeditor, waiter, dan caretaker. Peranan sebagai manajer memiliki subperanan sebagai: planner, organizator, motivator, coordinator, delegator, problem solver, decision maker, dan evaluator.
Fungsi ialah sekelompok tugas pekerjaan meliputi sejumlah aktivitas yang tergolong pada jenis yang sama berdasarkan sifat-sifatnya, pelaksanaannya atau urutan. Fungsi dalam suatu organisasi dibebankan kepada seseorang petugas atau satuan tertentu yang harus dilaksanakan. Fungsi Tenaga Administrasi adalah pelayanan prima di bidang administrasi baik dalam arti sebenarnya maupun singkatan. Singkatan PELAYANAN PRIMA adalah Pantas, Empati, Langsung, Akurat, Yakin, Aman, Nyaman, Alat, Nyata, Perkataan, Rahasia, Informasi, Mudah, dan Ahli. Arti singkatan ini sekaligus sebagai karakteristik pelayanan prima.
Keefektifan individual ditentukan oleh sikap, keterampilan, pengetahuan. Salah satu cara untuk mengefektifkan peranan dan fungsi Tenaga Administrasi ialah dengan mengadakan pelatihan manajerial Tenaga Administrasi berbasis kompetensi dengan langkah dari analisis kebutuhan pelatihan sampai laporan pelaksanaan pelatihan.

2. Metode
Salah satu komponen penting untuk mencapai keberhasilan pendidikan dalam mencapai tujuan adalah ketepatan menentukan metode, sebab tidak mungkin materi pendidikan dapat diterima dengan baik kecuali disampaikan dengan metode yang tepat. Metode diibaratkan sebagai alat yang dapat digunakan dalam suatu proses pencapaian tujuan, tanpa metode, suatu materi pelajaran tidak akan dapat berproses secara efesien dan efektif dalam kegiatan belajar mengajar menuju tujuan pendidikan.
Secara etimologi, istilah metode berasal dari bahasa Yunani “metodos”, kata ini terdiri dari dua suku kata yaitu “metha” yang berarti melalui atau melewati dan “hodos” yang berarti jalan atau cara. Metode berarti suatu jalan yang dilalui untuk mencapai tujuan.

a. Kurikulum
Banyak sekali definisi kurikulum yang dikemukakan oleh para ahli pendidikan. Namun, secara garis besar kurikulum mempunyai dua arti. Arti pertama kurikulum mencakup pengertian yang sempit, yaitu: seperangkat mata pelajaran (materi) yang diajarkan pada lembaga pendidikan. Arti yang ke dua mempunyai pengertian yang lebih luas, yaitu: segala metode, cara, atau sistem pembelajaran yang diterapkan pada lembaga pendidikan, termasuk materi atau mata pelajaran yang diajarkan dan tempat pelaksanaan pendidikan. Dalam tulisan ini, penulis menggunakan pengertian kurikulum dalam arti luas.
Kurikulum adalah hal-hal yang termasuk dalam bahan ajar di sekolah-sekolah. Kurikulum yang baik akan menghasilkan sistem pendidikan yang baik. Dengan sistem pendidikan yang baik diharapkan semua unsur yang terlibat di dalamnya bisa mencapai tujuan pendidikan yang diinginkan.

b. Proses Belajar Mengajar
Dalam proses belajar mengajar pada dasarnya merupakan proses interaksi antara yang belajar (siswa) dengan pengajar (guru). Seorang siswa telah dikatakan belajar apabila ia telah mengetahui sesuatu yang sebelumnya ia tidak dapat mengetahuinya, termasuk sikap tertentu yang sebelumnya belum dimilikinya. Sebaliknya, seorang guru dikatakan telah mengajar apabila ia telah membantu siswa atau orang lain untuk memperoleh perubahan yang dikehendaki.
Guru sebagai fasilitator dalam proses belajar mengajar hendaknya berupaya menciptakan situasi dan kondisi yang memungkinkan terjadinya proses belajar mengajar yang efektif dan efesien untuk para siswanya. Dalam hal ini dapat meningkatkan efektivitas kegiatan belajar mengajar.

3. Material
Peningkatan kualitas pendidikan di Indonesia selain tergantung kepada kualitas guru juga harus ditunjang dengan material pendidikan yang memadai, diantaranya adalah sarana dan prasarana pendidikan.
Tapi sayangnya, hingga sekarang ini, sarana dan prasarana pendidikan yang dimiliki sebagian besar sekolah di Indonesia masih kurang memadai seperti fasiltas laboratorium dan sebagainya. Sarana dan prasarana ini padahal sangat vital dalam kegiatan proses belajar dan mengajar.
“Sebut saja peralatan laboratorium yang di sebagian daerah masih sangat minim dimiliki sekolah, apalagi kalau SMA itu milik swasta sungguh sangat jarang yang memiliki sarana dan prasarana seperti laboratorium yang memadai

a. Sarana
Secara Etimologis (bahasa) sarana berarti alat langsung untuk mencapai tujuan pendidikan. misalnya; Ruang, Buku, Perpustakaan, Laboratorium dsb. Dengan demikian sarana pendidikan itu adalah semua komponen yang secara langsung menunjang jalannya proses pendidikan untuk mencapai tujuan dalam pendidikan itu sendiri.

b. Prasarana
sedangkan prasarana berarti alat tidak langsung untuk mencapai tujuan dalam pendidikan. misalnya: lokasi/tempat, bangunan sekolah, lapangan olahraga, uang dsb, jadi prasarana pendidikan itu adalah semua komponen yang secara tidak langsung menunjang jalannya proses pendidikan untuk mencapai tujuan dalam pendidikan itu sendiri.

4. Pendanaan
Rancangan Undang Undang (RUU) Badan Hukum Pendidikan (BHP) diupayakan akan mengatur pasal-pasal pendanaan pendidikan. Pasal pendanaan pendidikan itu antara lain mewajibkan pemerintah untuk membiayai pendidikan dasar 9 tahun, dan bukan menjadi beban masyarakat.
"Sedangkan, untuk pendidikan menengah dan tinggi, setidaknya DPR akan mendorong agar ada upaya membebaskan anak-anak berpotensi dan tidak mampu dari sisi biaya.
Mekanisme pendanaan pendidikan yang rumit dan kurang efisien selama ini menjadi salah satu kelemahan dunia pendidikan tanah air. Akibatnya, sebagian besar dana pendidikan ditanggung orang tua sehingga jumlahnya jauh lebih tinggi daripada dana yang ditanggung pemerintah.
Selama ini, dana pendidikan yang diperuntukkan bagi sasaran pendidikan berasal dari berbagai sumber, mulai dari tingkat pusat, provinsi, dan kabupaten/kota. Penyaluran dana dari masing-masing tingkat pun dilakukan melalui banyak projek. Sementara antartingkat dan antarprojek memiliki kebijakan sendiri-sendiri dalam hal sasaran yang ditargetkan, ditambah lagi dengan adanya inkoordinasi. rata-rata dana pendidikan yang berasal dari APBN dan APBD yang diterima sasaran pendidikan, baik itu sekolah, pendidik, dan peserta didik termasuk rendah.
Ketersediaan dana pendidikan yang rendah, mekanisme, prosedur alokasi dana, serta formula pendanaan yang tidak baik ini mengakibatkan biaya satuan pendidikan di sekolah juga rendah. Akibatnya selanjutnya, biaya yang ditanggung orang tua jauh lebih besar, dan akibat lainnya adalah terjadi tumpang tindih dalam pemberian dana ke sasaran pendidikan dan komponen yang dibiayai. Ada sasaran pendidikan yang mendapat dana dari berbagai sumber dana, ada juga yang tidak mendapat dana. Sebaliknya biaya yang dikeluarkan untuk sektor yang bukan sasaran menjadi besar.
Formula alokasi dana yang selama ini digunakan pada umumnya hanya menggunakan kriteria-kriteria kualitatif dan subjektif. Alternatif mekanisme pendanaan yang bisa diterapkan adalah melalui pendekatan yang berbasis pada kegiatan pembelajaran. Karakteristik utamanya adalah menggunakan komponen sistem pendidikan sebagai acuan ketimbang jenis pengeluaran.
Dalam mekanisme penyusunan anggaran pendidikan yang sifatnya bottom up ini, setiap sekolah menyusun RAPBS yang mencakup kebutuhan dana pokok pendidikan dan dana kompensasi kemiskinan serta peningkatan mutu. Kemudian sekolah mengusulkannya kepada dinas pendidikan di masing-masing kabupaten/kota. Dinas kabupaten/kota selanjutnya mengompilasikan usulan sekolah dan menjadikannya dasar penyusunan anggaran pendidikan sebagai bagian dari APBD yang dibiayai dengan DAU dan DAK.
Kemudian Dinas Provinsi menyusun dana penyelenggaraan untuk penataran guru dan dana koordinasi penyelenggaraan pendidikan lintas daerah di mana anggaran pendidikan ini bersumber dari APBD dan bantuan APBN.
dalam keterbatasan pemerintah dalam memikul beban pembiayaan pendidikan di tanah air dan dalam upaya meningkatkan kualitas pendidikan yang mampu bersaing secara global maka keterlibatan masyarakat dalam pembiayaan pendidikan masih diperlukan. Yang penting adalah, dana dari masyarakat tersebut tepat sasaran dan prioritas untuk kepentingan siswa. Untuk mencegah agar dana masyarakat tidak disalahgunakan, penting dilakukan pengawasan dan proses auditing yang lebih terbuka dan transparan sehingga prinsip akuntabilitas dapat terpenuhi. Dan terlebih penting lagi adalah sikap arif dan bijak pengelola sekolah dalam mengakomodasi kepentingan anggota masyarakat yang tidak mampu dengan cara memberi keringanan dan kalau perlu pembebasan biaya bagi siswa yang tidak mampu. Jadi, keterlibatan masyarakat dalam pembiayaan pendidikan merupakan solusi yang lebih masuk akal dan praktis dari pada kebijakan sekolah gratis yang pada akhirnya justru menghasilkan output pendidikan yang bersifat massal dengan mutu atau kualitas yang minimal.


OUTPUT SEKOLAH
Output merupakan kinerja sekolah. Kinerja sekolah adalah prestasi sekolah yang dihasilkan dari proses pendidikan di sekolah. Kinerja sekolah dapat diukur dari kualitasnya, efektivitasnya, produktivitasnya, efisiensinya, dan inovasinya. Khusus yang berkaitan dengan kualitas dapat dijelaskan bahwa output sekolah dikatakan berkualitas tinggi jika prestasi sekolah, khususnya prestasi belajar peserta didik, menunjukkan pencapaian yang tinggi dalam prestasi akademik (ulangan umum, UAN, lomba karya ilmiah, dan lomba-lomba akademik lainnya) dan prestasi non-akademik (IMTAQ, karakter/kepribadian, keolahragaan, keseniaan, keterampilan vokasional, kepramukaan, dsb.)
Sekolah sebagai sistem, seharusnya menghasilkan output yang dapat dijamin kepastiannya. Output sekolah, pada umumnya, diukur dari tingkat kinerjanya. Kinerja sekolah adalah pencapaian atau prestasi sekolah yang dihasilkan melalui proses persekolahan. Kinerja sekolah diukur dari efektivitasnya, kualitasnya, produktivitasnya, efisiensinya, inovasinya, kualitas kehidupan kerjanya, surplusnya, dan moral kerjanya, dengan keterangan seperlunya seperti berikut
Efektivitas adalah ukuran yang menyatakan sejauhmana sasaran/tujuan (kuantitas, kualitas, waktu) telah dicapai. Dalam bentuk persamaan, efektivitas adalah sama dengan hasil nyata dibagi hasil yang diharapkan. Sekolah yang efektif pada umumnya menunjukkan kedekatan/kemiripan antara hasil nyata dengan hasil yang diharapkan.
Kualitas, dalam konteks sekolah, adalah gambaran dan karakteristik menyeluruh dari lulusan yang menunjukkan kemampuannya dalam memuaskan kebutuhan yang ditentukan atau yang tersirat, misalnya NEM, prestasi olah raga, prestasi karya tulis ilmiah, dan prestasi pentas seni. Kualitas tamatan dipengaruhi oleh tahapan-tahapan kegiatan sekolah yang saling berhubungan, yaitu perencanaan, pelaksanaan, dan evaluasi.


Bagaimana hubungan output sekolah dengan masyarakat
Untuk mewujudkan output pendidikan yang sesuai dengan tuntutan dan kebutuhan masyarakat dibutuhkan pendidikan yang bermutu. Apabila kita lihat mutu pendidikan di negara kita saat ini masih menghadapi beberapa problematika. Beberapa problem mengenai mutu pendidikan kita adalah:
- Pembiasaaan atau penyimpangan arah pendidikan dari tujuan pokoknya
- Malproses dan penyempitan simplikatif lingkup proses pendidikan menjadi sebatas pengajaran.
- Pergeseran fokus pengukuran hasil pembelajaran yang lebih diarahkan pada aspek-aspek intelektual atau derajat kecerdasan nalar. Sedangkan salah satu problematika pendidikan di Indonesia adalah keterbatasan anggaran dan sarana pendidikan, sehingga kinerja pendidikan tidak berjalan dengan optimal.
Persoalan tersebut menjadi lebih komplek jika kita kaitkan dengan penumpukan lulusan karena tidak terserap oleh masyarakat atau dunia kerja karena rendahnya kompetensi mereka. Mutu dan hasil pendidikan tidak memenuhui harapan dan kebutuhan masyarakat atau mempunyai daya saing yang rendah.
Indikator yang menunjukkkan rendahnya mutu hasil pendidikan kita adalah kepekaan sosial alumni sistem pendidikan terhadap persoalan masyarakat yang seharusnya menjadi konsen utama mereka.
Jelas bahwa kompetensi moral dan kompetensi sosial SDM keluaran sistem pendidikan kita sangat tidak compatible dengan tuntutan dunia kerja di dalam masyarakatnya. Sistem pendidikan tidak menjadikan masyarakat sebagai dasar prosesualnya dan tidak berakar pada sosial budaya yang ada. Pendidikan berjalan di luar alam sosial budaya masyarakatnya, sehingga segala yang ditanamkan (dilatensikan) melalui proses pendidikan merupakan hal-hal yang tidak bersentuhan dengan persoalan kehidupan nyata yang dihadapi masyarakat tersebut.



Pepatah mengatakan: "kegemilangan masa depan tergantung apa yang diperbuat hari ini". Secara implisit hal tersebut dapat dikonotasikan bahwa keberhasilan peningkatan mutu pendidikan di masa depan sangat tergantung pada stake holder pendidikan yang meliputi: pendidik, peserta didik, masyarakat, institusi, sarana dan prasarana, pengelolaan dan, dan sebagainya.
Memaksimalkan komponen-komponen stake holder dalam pendidikan bukanlah hal yang mudah. Hal ini karena keberadaan-keberadaan komponen tersebut saling melengkapi. Ibarat sebuah sistem komponen-komponen tersebut perlu dikembangkan secara integratif melalui pendekatan sistem.
Pendekatan sistem dapat digunakan sebagai suatu pendekatan dalam memecahkan permasalahan yang paling sederhana sampai pada tingkat permasalahan yang paling kompleks, khususnya dalam peningkatan mutu pendidikan. Persoalan-persoalan yang mengemuka dalam dunia pendidikan dan merupakan tantangan pendidik di masa datang harus diselesaikan secara sistemik, analitik, dan sistematik.
Sistemik dalam arti permasalahan pendidikan harus dilihat dari konteks keseluruhan. Analitik dalam pengertian permasalahan dalam dunia pendidikan perlu dianalisis sebab dan akibatnya dikaitkan dengan berbagai masalah yang ada, baik di dalam maupun di luar sistem. Sedangkan sistematik dalam arti cara kerja dalam penyelesaian permasalahan harus beraturan atau runtut. Hal ini dapat dilihat dari proses kegiatannya, yaitu perumusan masalah, penelitian, penilaian, penelaahan, pemeriksaan, pelaksanaan, dan evaluasi kegiatan.
Permasalahan yang mengemuka dalam dunia pendidikan memang sangat kompleks dan sporadis. Oleh karena itu, di masa datang seorang pendidik harus tanggap sasmita terhadap arus reformasi dan transformasi pendidikan.

Yang Belum Terselesaikan Jua

Acara ngobrol-ngobrol teman lama terjadi kemaren, disalah satu grup pertemanan jejaring sosial. Dan kemarin itu, saya kembali diingatkan oleh seorang kawan tentang sebuah peribahasa, “Jutaan langkah kearah satu tujuan dimulai oleh satu langkah kecil ”.
Karena semua kawan-kawan adalah alumnus dari sebuah perguruan tinggi dengan sebagian besar bergelar Sarjana Pendidikan, dan sebagian besar pula sudah menjadi seorang guru, maka pembicaraan yang diselingi “panderan kada kakaruan” itu mengarah pada seputar permasalahan pendidikan dan suka dukanya menjadi seorang guru. Banyak masukan yang bisa saya tangkap dari pembicaraan itu, terutama keluhan teman-teman yang sudah mengajar, tentang ketertinggalan, baik sarana dan prasarana, maupun segi sumber daya manusia, dan daya tangkap anak-anak, ditempat dia mentransfer ilmunya kepada calon penerus nusa bangsa Indonesia raya.
Kita sadari, memang bukan tugas yang mudah untuk menjadi seorang guru, seorang pendidik yang punya tanggungjawab moril terhadap keberlangsungan pendidikan di negeri ini, dan sebagai ujung tombak sumber daya manusia Indonesia. Tapi, apa kita akan menyerah dengan segala keterbatasan itu.
Sekarang kita bersyukur program pemerintah wajib belajar 12 tahun bergulir, dan anak Indonesia bisa bersekolah gratis paling tidak sampai lulus Sekolah Menengah Pertama (SMP). Dan akhir tahun 2008 kemarin, Depdiknas melakukan terobosan dengan meluncurkan program Buku Sekolah Elektronik (BSE), dimana didalam websitenya, depdiknas membeli sekitar 250 hak cipta buku pelajaran dan juga memberikan keleluasaan pada siapa saja untuk mengakses buku pelajaran secara online tersebut, bahkan untuk mengcopy dan membajaknya sekalipun. Suatu terobosan yang patut diacungi jempol. Program ini akan sangat bermanfaat bagi guru untuk setidaknya, membandingkan materi pelajaran ditempat dia mengajar dengan materi yang notabene sudah standar disekolah-sekolah yang sudah maju, sehingga dia dapat mengadopsinya untuk disesuaikan dengan kemampuan siswa dimana dia bertugas. Disamping itu juga program ini sangat bermanfaat bagi orang tua dan anak sekolah dimana orang tua dan anak sekolah dapat mengakses buku sekolah elektronik ini, sehingga tidak usah risau lagi untuk membeli buku, karena harga buku sangat mahal. Dan mudah-mudahan pemerataan pendidikan bisa dicapai dari Sabang sampai Merauke, dari Timor sampai ke Talaut.
Informasi tentang program depdiknas ini sudah diketahui banyak orang lewat media televisi, akan tetapi masih banyak kawan-kawan yang bertugas didaerah terpencil yang belum bisa mengakses program ini secara langsung, karena memang belum adanya akses internet kewilayah tersebut atau memang keterbatasan pengetahuan mereka ( guru-guru) tentang dunia maya atau internet. Karena saya sendiri pernah menyaksikan pelatihan dasar komputer dikantor kami kepada guru-guru sekolah dasar. Ternyata masih banyak yang tidak bisa menyalakan computer. Bukan salah mereka, jangankan menghidupkan computer, sekolah mereka saja belum terjamah oleh PLN, bagaimana mereka bisa mengenal computer, apalagi disuruh main internet. Itu artinya, pemerataan pendidikan perlu disokong oleh pemerataan disegala aspek kehidupan yang lain juga.
Lantas, apa solusi terhadap problem pelik pemerataan mutu pendidikan di negeri ini? Salah satu di antaranya adalah harus ada kemauan politik yang sangat keras untuk membuat kebijakan pemerataan pendidikan yang berpihak pada rakyat. Murid-murid dari keluarga tidak mampu harus diprioritaskan untuk mendapatkan beasiswa. Hal ini menjadi salah satu alternatif yang lebih adil untuk memeratakan kesempatan belajar serta pemerataan mutu pendidikan. Juga, perlu ada political will dari semua pihak, terutama pemerintah dan legislatif, untuk melaksanakan program tersebut. Program itu harus dilakukan secara revolusioner, tidak boleh setengah hati.
Meningkatkan kualitas pendidikan tidak hanya melalui indentifikasi isu, tetapi mencakup keberanian membuat kebijakan progresif, inovatif, serta transformatif.
Apakah hal ini sudah cukup, saya rasa tidak. Selain pemerintah, guru atau tenaga pengajar juga merupakan bagian yang sangat penting guna mewujudkan pemerataan pendidikan. Kewajiban seorang guru sangat besar terhadap kemajuan pendidikan bangsa pada umumnya dan kemajuan anak didik dan sekolahnya pada khususnya.
Memang saya tahu, dan kita tahu bersama, masih begitu banyak kekurangan atau kalau boleh disebut kebobrokan sistem dari lembaga yang menaungi masalah pendidikan dinegeri ini (Kemdiknas), terutama di tingkat daerah dan perlu perbaikan atau malah revolusi sistem. Tapi tak ada kata tidak mungkin bagi seorang guru untuk membuat anak didiknya jadi pintar.

SYNDROM BUTA WARNA



Suatu hari selepas pulang dari bekerja, ketika berhenti dipertigaan lampu merah, saya mengambil tempat didepan sebuah mobil yang juga berheti dilampu merah tersebut. Tidak berapa lama kemudian ada sebuah motor yang menyalip saya dari kiri, dan berhenti tepat didepan motor saya agak kesebelah kiri. Bapak yang memakai peci haji ini dengan enaknya berhenti digaris “zebra cross”, dan melewati garis batas pembagi kiri-kanan jalan, yang ditandai dengan garis putih. Pikir saya bapak ini sudah merampas hak orang lain, untuk pengendara lain yang ingin mengambil jalur lurus dan para pejalan kaki yang ingi menyeberang. “Akh..sudahlah pikir saya”, yang penting saya sudah berada dijalur yang semestinya. Lewat beberapa hitungan detik, adalagi anak muda yang berhenti tepat disamping kiri bapak tadi, “saya pikir tambah tertutup ini jalan”. Waktu itu lalulintas dijalan memang agak sepi, melihat ada kesempatan untuk membelok, anak muda ini tancap gas belok kanan, meskipun lampu masih menyala merah. Sayangnya, melihat anak muda ini membelok, bapak yang pakai peci tadi lagi-lagi dengan santainya ikut-ikutan belok kanan.
Kejadian seperti ini menjadi pemandangan saya setiap hari dikota Banjarmasin, baik itu mau berangkat maupun pulang kerja, karena dipertigaan dan perempatan lampu merah yang setiap hari saya lewati, memang tidak ada polisi lalulintasnya. Entah kenapa para pengendara lebih takut membuat pelanggaran di lampu merah yang ada pos polisinya saja. Mereka lebih takut kepada polisi dari pada peraturan dengan tidak mempertimbangkan keselamatan nyawa mereka sendiri. Atau boleh jadi masyarakat kota ini sudah terjangkit syndrome buta warna.
Lampu lalulintas muncul pertama kali di Westminster Inggris pada tahun 1868 dengan menggunakan gas. Kemudian pada tahun 1918 di New York, dengan formasi merah-kuning-hijau yang dioperasikan secara manual. Pada 1926 telah dilakukan pengoperasian lampu secara semi otomatis di Wolverhampton Inggris. Secara teknis, pengaturan lampu memang berkembang pesat dari pengoperasian secara manual oleh manusia, semi-otomatis, otomatis, hingga sistem kamera dan ATCS (Automatic Traffic Control System). Lampu isyarat lalulintas ini merupakan standar internasional, seperti juga rambu lalulintas yang ada di tepi jalan. Merah, kuning dan hijau adalah warna yang sudah paten di negeri manapun, meskipun dalam pengaturannya terdapat beberapa perbedaan
Di Indonesia, pengaturan lampu lalulintas ini tertuang dan dilindungi oleh Undang-Undang Lalulintas dan Angkutan Jalan Nomor 14 Tahun 1992, seperti pada Pasal 8, Pasal 23, serta Pasal 61. Umumnya pengaturan pergantian nyala hijau pada suatu lengan dalam suatu simpang (atau urutan arus lalulintas yang mendapat nyala hijau, biasanya disebut fase) biasanya searah jarum jam. Namun aturan ini sangat tidak baku, tergantung dari hasil analisis ahli lalulintas berdasarkan volume dan komposisi lalulintas serta geometri simpang. Secara garis besar, lampu lalulintas dipergunakan untuk mengatur arus lalulintas, guna mencegah kemacetan.
Kita sadari pelanggaran rambu-rambu lalulintas, khususnya lampu lalulintas, disebabkan oleh banyak faktor. Namun, kesadaran untuk tertib berlalulintas merupakan faktor yang paling utama yang harus ditanamkan kepada para pengendara, agar tercipta kenyamanan berkendara. Nah itu yang sulit, karena pelanggaran lalulintas, khususnya lampu lalulintas, bukan hanya membahayakan sipengendara itu sendiri, tetapi juga orang lain sebagai pengguna jalan.
Kita ketahui bersama dengan keterbatasan personil aparat penegak hukum, polisi lalulintas seharusnya lebih berperan aktif mensosialisasikan tertib berlalulintas, dan sanksinya harus lebih tegas kepada pelanggarnya. Karena, seperti pepatah “lebih baik mencegah, daripada mengobati”. Mungkin hal ini bisa dioptimalkan pada saat pembuatan SIM (Surat Izin Mengemudi).
Pernah ketika membuat SIM dulu, saya sampai 2 kali mengikuti tes tertulis, tapi tidak pernah lulus. Padahal menurut saya soal yang diujikan tidak begitu sulit, kalo dibanding dengan soal Ujian Masuk Perguruan Tinggi Negeri, karena waktu itu saya baru saja lulus UMPTN diBanjarmasin. Saya kira tidak pernah ada keterbukaan mengenai penilaian dan batasan kelulusan tes tertulis pembuatan SIM, di kota manapun di negeri ini, sehingga kita hanya bisa menerima, tanpa bisa protes, pokoknya tidak lulus. Yang lebih parah lagi, ada oknum polisi waktu itu yang menawarkan pada saya untuk jalan pintas atau lebih dikenal dengan (menembak), jadi kita tidak perlu repot bolak-balik kekantor polisi untuk ikut tes, tinggal bayar lebih, langsung foto, jadi deh. Tapi saya pikir-pikir lagi, selain uangnya untuk keperluan lain, juga saya memang ingin mengetahui langsung bagaimana cara pembuatan SIM itu, akhirnya saya batal bikin SIM, biarlah lain kali saja. Kejadian ini membuat saya berpikir, bagaimana mungkin orang mengerti tentang rambu-rambu lalulintas, kalo bikin SIM-nya aja menembak, alias tanpa tes tertulis. Memang mereka juga nggak mau repot bolak-balik hanya untuk tes tertulis yang hanya sekedar formalitas belaka. Jadi siapa yang mesti disalahkan?!?
Kembali pada permasalahan diatas, kalo boleh saya mengusulkan, bagaimana kalo proses pembuatan SIM (Surat Izin Mengemudi) disertakan tes “ishihara” atau tes buta warna, karena syndrom buta warna ini sudah melanda hampir sebagian besar pengendara motor di kota Banjarmasin, mereka tidak bisa lagi membedakan mana warna lampu lalulintas yang merah, kuning, ataupun hijau.
Sekarang saya sudah punya anak yang masih kecil, kebutuhan sarana transfortasi memang tidak saya pungkiri. Tapi yang jelas, bila saatnya saya harus membiarkan anak saya naik motor sendiri, pasti sebelumnya akan saya jelaskan fungsi dan manfaat rambu-rambu lalulintas, agar dia mengerti pentingnya menaati peraturan lalulintas. Saatnya kembali kepada diri kita masing-masing, untuk lebih introspeksi diri dalam berkendara, atau meneruskan tradisi yang jelek dengan melanggar rambu-rambu lalulintas, khususnya lampu lalulintas. Apalagi Undang-undang Lalu lintas yang baru akan segera diberlakukan dengan aturan dan sanksi yang jauh lebih berat.
Untuk petugas lalulintas, alangkah bijaksananya bila pak polisi menjadi aparat yang santun dalam menjelaskan aturan berlalulintas, karena sejauh ini polisi hanya dianggap sebagai sosok penegak hukum yang ditakuti, bukan sebagai pengayom masyarakat dengan pembinaan dan pembelajaran tertib berlalulintas. Hal ini karena banyaknya masyarakat yang tidak mengerti benar manfaat dan fungsi lampu lalulintas, karena bikin SIM-nya tadi dengan jalan pintas, dan masih banyak juga masyarakat yang buta warna.

PUISI CINTA BUAT ANAKKU

Negeri ini terus menuai bencana
Bukankah puisi cinta ini berkisah
kisah melintas hamparan lembah yang luka
kisah membelah sungai yang duka

kubangunkan bumi dikabut ini

Desau-desau hening
Di lepakan sayap-sayap embun
Di kaki langit yang akankah masih biru
Di menara bumi yang akankah masih hijau

Dan kuhembuskan sajak ke ubun-ubunnya
sebab alam ini bagai nyanyian angin,
maka berlarilah engkau untuk menghirupnya

LIRIK LAGU-LAGU

You’re all I need
White Lion


I know that she's waiting
For me to say forever
I know that I sometimes
Just don't know how to tell her
I want to hold and kiss her
Give her my love
Make her believe
She doesn't know
She doesn't know

You're all I need beside me girl
You're all I need to turn my world
You're all I want inside my heart
You're all I need when we're apart
You're all that I need
Yeah...

I know that she's always
There when I need her loving
I know that I've never
Told her how much I love her
I see her face before me
I look in her eyes
Wondering why
She doesn't know
She doesn't know
She doesn't know
You're all I need beside me girl
You're all I need to turn my world
You're all I want inside my heart
You're all I need when we're apart

Say, say that you'll be there
Whenever I reach out
To feel your hand in mine
Stay, stay within my heart
Whenever I'm alone
I'll know that you are there
ooohhhh....

You're all I need beside me girl
You're all I need to turn my world
You're all I want inside my heart
You're all I need when we're apart

You're all I need beside me girl
(All that I need)
All I need to turn my world
(All that I want to do)
You're all I want inside my heart
(I need you baby)
All I need when we're apart

All that I need
Is for you to believe
All that I need
Is you




Till death do us apart
White Lion


As we talk the golden mile
Down the pretty aisle
I know that you are mine
And there¹s nothing in this world

That I know that I won¹t do
To be near you everyday
Every hour every minute

Take my hand and let me lead the way

All thru your life
I¹ll be by your side
Till death do us part
I¹ll be your friend
My love will never end
Till death do us part

When I wake up everyday
With you lying in my arms
I wonder if I¹m dreaming
When I look into your eyes
I just can¹t believe it¹s true
That my heart belongs to you
Baby you can have it all

Take my hand and let me lead the way
All thru your life
I¹ll be by your side
Till death do us part
I¹ll be your friend
My love will never end
Till death do us part

There¹ll be good times
And there¹ll be bad
But I will stand beside you woman
All the way
And thru the years
As life goes on Œn¹ on
When snow will fall on winter nights
I¹ll keep you warm inside
Yeah baby I will

All thru your life
I¹ll be by your side
Till death do us part
I¹ll be your friend
My love will never end
Till death do us part




When the children cry
White Lion


Little child
dry you cryin eyes
How can I explain the fear you feel inside?

'Cause you were born into this evil world
Where man is killin' man but no one knows just why.
What have we become
just look what we have done
All that we destroyed you must build again.

When the children cry
let them know we tried
'Cause when the the children sing
then the new world begins.

Little child
you must show the way
To a better day for all the young.

'Cause you were born for the world to see
That we all can live with love and peace.
No more presidents and all the wars will end
One united world under God.

When the children cry
let them know we tried
What have we become
just look what we have done

All that we destroyed you must build again.
No more presidents and all the wars will end

One united world under God.

When the children cry
let them know we tried
'Cause when the children fight
let them know it ain't right.
When the children pray
let them know the way

'Cause when the children sing
then the new world begins.




When I see you smile
Bad English


Sometimes I wonder
How I'd ever make it through,
Through this world without having you
I just wouldn't have a clue

'Cause sometimes it seems
Like this world's closing in on me,
And there's no way of breaking free
And then I see you reach for me

Sometimes I wanna give up
I wanna give in,
I wanna quit the fight
And then I see you, baby
And everything's alright,
everything's alright

When I see you smile
I can face the world, oh oh,
you know I can do anything
When I see you smile
I see a ray of light, oh oh,
I see it shining right through the rain
When I see you smile
Oh yeah, baby when I see you smile at me


Baby there's nothing in this world
that could ever do
What a touch of your hand can do
It's like nothing that I ever knew

And when the rain is falling
I don't feel it,
'cause you're here with me now
And one look at you baby
Is all I'll ever need,
you're all I'll ever need

Chorus

Sometimes I wanna give up
I wanna give in,
I wanna quit the fight
And then I see you baby
And everything's alright,
everything's alright

So right...




Where You goin’ now
Damn Yangkees


there's a face in the mirror
and you close your eyes
much easier to turn away
than to take a look inside
so you're thinking it's over
walking away
let your little world crash and burn
oh what a price to pay
didn't anybody tell you
it's not who's right or wrong
hold the line
is this what's going on

where you goin' now
when your world's turned inside out
isn't love what it's all about
where you goin' now
when you get to the too of the hill
gonna be there yes i will

there's a crack in the mirror
there's a hole in the sun
full moon in the midnight sky
and you feel like you want to run
so you blow out the candle
and you turn out the lightthen you stumble into darkness
do you believe that love is blind
didn't anybody tell you
it's never too late to try
hold the linebefore you say goodbye

where you goin' now
when your world's turned inside out
isn't love what it's all about
where you goin' now
when you get to the top of the hill
gonna be there yes i will

i'm not talking
about what's good for me
and i'm not saying
how you ought to be
but if there is a message
shining on through to you
take a little piece of mind
and let that love light shine
didn't anybody tell you
it's never too late to try
hold the line
before you say goodbye

where you goin' now
when your world's turned inside out
isn't love what it's all about
where you goin' now
when you get to the top of the hill
gonna be there yes i will




Tears in heaven
Eric Clapton


Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven
I'll find my way, through night and day
Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please

(instrumental)

Beyond the door
There's peace I'm sure.
And I know there'll be no more...

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven




Hazard
Richard Mark


My mother came to Hazard when I was just seven
Even then the folks in town said with prejudiced eyes
That boy's not right ...
Three years ago when I came to know Mary
First time that someone looked beyond the rumours and

the lies
And saw the man inside ...
We used to walk down by the river
She loved to watch the sun go down

We used to walk along the river
And dream our way out of this town ...
No one understood what I felt for Mary
No one cared until the night she went out walking alone
And never came home ...
Man with a badge came knocking next morning
Here was I surrounded by a thousand fingers suddenly
Pointed right at me ...

I swear I left her by the river
I swear I left her safe and sound
I need to make it to the river
And leave this old Nebraska town



I think about my life gone by
And how it's done me wrong
There's no escape for me this time
All of my rescues are gone, long gone

I swear I left her by the river
I swear I left her safe and sound
I need to make it to the river
And leave this old Nebraska town ...

Angel
Lionel Richie


I just want to tell you all the things you are
And all the things you mean to me
You've been with me forever
Through the changes in my life
Through all the tears and laughter

When I find myself believing there's no place to go
When I feel the loneliness inside my heart

You're the answer to my prayers
And you're with me everywhere
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need tonight
Give me shelter from the rain
You breathe life in me again
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need to know, tonight

Life is just a moment
We're blowing in the wind
We're trying to find a friend
And only time can tell us
If win or if we lose
And who will stand beside us


When there's darkness all around me
You're the light I see
When I need someone to ease my troubled mind

You're the answer to my prayers
And you're with me everywhere
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need tonight
Give me shelter from the rain
You breathe life in me again
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need to know, tonight

You're all I need tonight
All I need tonight
All I need tonight
You're my angel

You're the answer to my prayers
And you're with me everywhere
You're my angel, miracle, you're all I need tonight
Give me shelter from the rain
You breathe life in me again
You're my angel, my miracle, you're all I need to know, tonight




Hello
Lionel Richie


I've been alone with you inside my mind
And in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times
I sometimes see you pass outside my door
Hello, is it me you're looking for?

I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You're all I've ever wanted, (and) my arms are open wide
'Cause you know just what to say
And you know just what to do
And I want to tell you so much, I love you ...

I long to see the sunlight in your hair
And tell you time and time again how much I care
Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow
Hello, I've just got to let you know


'Cause I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely,
or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying, I love you ...

Hello, is it me you're looking for?
'Cause I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely,
or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying ... I love you




New day has come
Celine dion


I was waiting for so long
For a miracle to come
Everyone told me to be strong
Hold on and don't shed a tear

SO through darkness and good times
I knew I'd make it through
And the world thought I had it all
But I was waiting for you

Hush now
I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe I've been touched by an angel
With love

Let the rain come down
And wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul
And drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new sun
A new day has come
A new day has come



Where it was dark now there's light
Where there was pain, now there's joy
Where there was weakness I found my strength
All in the eyes of a boy

Hush now
I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe I've been touched by and angel
With love

Let the rain come down
And wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul
And drown my fears
Let it shatter the wall
For a new sun
A new day has come
A new day has come

Let the rain come down
And wash away my tears
Let is fill my soul
And drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls
For a new sun
A new day has come
A new day has come




My heart will go on
Celine Dion


Every night in my dreams
I see you. I feel you.
That is how I know you go on.

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on.

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we're gone


Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on


Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on


You're here, there's nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on





Then You look at me
Celine Dion


Laugh and cry
Live and die
Life is a dream we're dreaming

Day by day
I find my way
Look for the song and the meaning

Then you look at me
And I always see
What I have been searching for
I'm lost as can be
Then you look at me
And I am not lost anymore

People run
Sun to sun

Caught in their lives ever flowing
Once begun
Life goes till it's gone
We have to go where it's going


Chorus

And you say you see
When you look at me
The reason you love life so
As lost I have been
I'll find love again
And life just keeps on running
And life just keeps on running
You look at me
And life goes on....for you






No me Ames
Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony

Dime por qué lloras
De felicidad
Y por qué te ahogas
Por la soledad
Di por qué me tomas, fuerte asÃ,
mis manos, y tus pensamientos te van llevando

Yo te quiero tanto
Y por qué será
Loco testarudo, no lo dudes más,
aunque en el futuro haya un muro enorme,
yo no tengo miedo, quiero enamorarme.

No me ames, porque pienses que
parezco diferente
Tú no piensas que es lo justo,
ver pasar el tiempo juntos
No me ames, que comprendo,
la mentira que serÃa.
Si tu amor no merezco, no me ames,
mas quédate otro dÃa

No me ames, porque estoy perdido,
porque cambié el mundo, porque es el
destino, porque no se puede, somos un espejo,
Y tú asÃserÃas lo que yo
de mÃreflejo
No me ames, para estar muriendo,
dentro de una guerra llena de
arrepentimientos, no me ames para estar
en tierra, quiero alzar el
vuelo, con
tu gran amor por el azul del cielo
(SHORT BREAK)

No sé qué decirte, esa es la verdad,
si la gente quiere, sabe lastimar
Tú y yo partiremos, ellos no se mueven,
pero en este cielo sola no me dejes

No me dejes, no me dejes, no me escuches,
si te digo "no me ames".
No me dejes, no desarmes,
mi corazón con ese "no me ames"
No me ames, te lo ruego, mi amargura, dèjame
Sabes bien, que no puedo, que es inútil,
que siempre te amaré

No me ames, pues te haré sufrir con este
corazòn que se llenó de mil inviernos
No me ames, para asÃolvidarte de tus dÃas grises, quiero que me ames
sólo por amarme
No me ames, tú y yo volaremos,
uno con el otro y seguiremos siempre juntos
Este amor es como el sol que sale tras de la tormenta
Como dos cometas en la misma estela

"Dont love me" >> "You don't love me"

Tell me why you're crying...
Of happiness.
And why are you drowning?
for loneliness
Tell me why you take my hands so strongly, and let your
thoughts carry you away



I love you so much
And why is that?
Crazy stubborn person, stop doubting it any longer
Even though in the future there will be a huge wall
I'm not afraid, I want to fall in love

Dont love me, because you think that
I may appear different
You dont think its right
For us to see time go by together?
Dont love me, I understand
the lie that it would be
If your love, I don;t deserve, dont love me,
just stay another day

Dont love me, because I am lost,
Because I changed the world,Because its destiny
Because it can't be, We both are like a mirror,
And you would be my own reflection
Don't love me, you would be dying
Within a war full of regrets,dont love me to be on this
Earth, I would like to throw your enormous love
thru the blue sky.

(SHORT BREAK)

I dont know what to say to you, that's the truth
When people want to, they know how to hurt
You and I will depart, they would not move,
But in this sky dont leave me alone

Dont leave me, dont leave me, dont listen to me
If I say to you "dont love me"
Dont let me. Do not disable
my heart with that "Dont love me"
Dont love me, I'm begging you, leave me with my bitterness
You know well, that I can't, that its useless,
That I will always love you

Dont love me,because I would make you suffer with this heart of mine
that was filled with a thousand winters.
Dont love me,so that way you can forget of your gray days.
I want you to love me, just to love me
Dont love me, you and I will fly,
With with the other, and we will always be together
This love is like the sun that comes out after the storm
Like 2 comets on the same path






All By Myself
Celine Dion


When I was young
I never needed anyone
And making love was just for fun
Those days are gone
Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
When I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore

Hard to be sure
Sometimes I feel so insecure
And loves so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself
Anymore
When I was young
I never needed anyone
Making love was just for fun
Those days are gone

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
Oh
Don't wanna live
By myself, by myself
Anymore
By myself
Anymore
Oh
All by myself
Don't wanna live
I never, never, never
Needed anyone





Spending my time
Roxete


What's the time? Seems it's already morning
I see the sky, it's so beautiful and blue
The TV's on, but the only thing showing
Is a picture of you
Oh I get up and make myself some coffee
I try to read a bit but the story's too thin
I thank the lord above that you're not here to see me
In this shape I'm in

Spending my time watching the days go by
Feeling so small I stare at the wall
Hoping that you think of me too
I'm spending my time

I try to call but I don't know what to tell you
I leave a kiss on your answering machine
Oh help me please, is there someone who can make me
Wake up from this dream?

Spending my time watching the days go by
Feeling so small I stare at the wall
Hoping that you think of me too
I'm spending my time (spending my time)
Watching the sun go down
I fall asleep to the sound of "Tears of a clown"
A prayer gone blind
I'm spending my time

My friends keep telling me
"Hey life will go on"
Time will make sure I get over you oh
This silly game of love
You play, you win, only to lose
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Spending my time watching the days go by
Feeling so small I stare at the wall
Hoping that you think of me too
I'm spending my time (spending my time)
Watching the sun go down
I fall asleep to the sound of "Tears of a clown"
A prayer gone blind
I'm spending my time






It must have been love
Roxete


Lay a whisper on my pillow
Leave the winter on the ground
I wake up lonely, is there a silence
In the bedroom and all around

Touch me now, I close my eyes
And dream away...

It must have been love, but it's over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it's over now
From the moment we touched till the time had run out

Make believing we're together
That I'm sheltered by your heart
But in and outside I turn to water
Like a teardrop in your palm

And it's a hard winter's day
I dream away...



It must have been love, but it's over now
It was all that I wanted, now I'm living without
It must have been love, but it's over now
It's where the water flows, it's where the wind blows

It must have been love, but it's over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it's over now
From the moment we touched till the time had run out





I Remember You
Skid Row


Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
The wind would whisper and I'd think of you
And all the tears you cried, that called my name
And when you needed me I came through

I paint a picture of the days gone by
When love went blind and you would make me see
I'd stare a lifetime into your eyes
So that I knew you were there for me
Time after time you were there for me

Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights thru every endless day
I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you

We spend the summer with the top rolled down
Wished ever after would be like this
You said I love you babe, without a sound
I said I'd give my life for just one kiss
I'd live for your smile and die for your kiss

Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights thru every endless day
I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you

We've had our share of hard times
But that's the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you'll never be lonely

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
Washed away a dream of you
But nothing else could ever take you away
'Cause you'll always be my dream come true
Oh my darling, I love you

Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights thru every endless day
I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you

Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand - I remember you




Wonderfull tonight
Eric Clapton


It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear.
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she asks me, "Do I look all right?"
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."

We go to a party and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady that's walking around with me.
And then she asks me, "Do you feel all right?"
And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."

I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes.
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize how much I love you.

It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head,
So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed.
And then I tell her, as I turn out the light,
I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight.
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."





Breathless
The coors


Go on, go on, leave me breathless
Come on...

The daylight's fading slowly
but time with you is standing still
I'm waiting for you only
The slightest touch and I'll feel weak

I cannot lie
From you I cannot hide
I'm losing the will to try
Can't hide it (can't hide it)
Can't fight it (can't fight it)
So...

Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me until I can't deny this
loving feeling, make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on...

And if there's no tomorrow
And all we have is here and now
I'm happy just to have you
You're all the love I need somehow

It's like a dream
Although I'm not asleep
I never want to wake up
Don't lose it (don't lose it)
Don't leave me (don't leave me)

Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me until I can't deny this
loving feeling, make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on...



And I can't lie
From you I cannot hide
I've lost my will to try
Can't hide it (can't hide it)
Can't fight it (can't fight it)
So...

Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me until I can't deny this
loving feeling, make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on...

Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless (leave me breathless)
Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless (leave me breathless)
Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless (leave me breathless)
Go on, go on




Only when I sleep
The Coors


You're only just a dream boat
Sailing in my head
You swim my secret oceans
Of coral blue and red

Your smell is incense burning
Your touch is silken yet
It reaches through my skin
Moving from within
And clutches at my breast
.
(Chorus)
But it's only when I sleep
See you in my dreams
Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down

But I only hear you breathe
Somewhere in my sleep
Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down
But it's only when I sleep


And when I wake from slumber
Your shadow's disappeared
Your breath is just a sea mist
Surrounding my body I'm working through the daytime
But when it's time to rest
I'm lying in my bed
Listening to my breath
Falling from the edge

But it's only when I sleep
It's reaching through my skin
Moving from within
And clutches at my breast
But it's only when I sleep...

Up to the sky
Where angels fly
I'll never die
Hawaiian high
In bed I lie
No need to cry
My sleeping cry
Hawaiian high




Radio
The Coors


It's late at night and I'm feeling down
There are couples standing on the street
Sharing summer kisses and silly sounds...

So I step inside for a glass of wine.
With a full glass and an empty heart,
I search for something to occupy my mind...

'Cause you are in my head,
Swimming forever in my head,
Tangled in my dreams,
Swimming forever...

So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
And all the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
Remember where we used to go

Now its morning light and it's cold outside,
Caught up in a distant dream I turn
And think that you are by my side...

So I leave my bed and I try to dress,
Wondering why my mind plays tricks
And fools me into thinking you are there


But you're still in my head,
Swimming forever in my head,
Not lying in my bed,
Just swimming forever...

So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
And all the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
Remember where we used to go
So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
And all the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
Remember where we used to go

You are in my head,
Swimming forever

So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
And all the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
Remember where we used to go
I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
To all the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
To all the songs, all the songs we used to know





So Young
The Coors


We are taking it easy
Bright and breezy
We are living it up
Just fine and dandy

We are chasing the moon
Just running wild and free
We are following through
Every dream, and every need

And it really doesn't matter that we don't eat
And it really doesn't matter that we don't sleep
It really doesn't matter, it really doesn't matter at all

'Cause we were so young then
We are so young, so young now
And when tomorrow comes
We'll just do it all again


We are caught in a haze
On these lazy summer days
We're spending all of our nights just
A-laughing and kissing, yeah

No it really doesn't matter if we don't sleep
No it really doesn't matter if we don't sleep
It really doesn't matter at all

And it really doesn't matter that we don't eat
And it really doesn't matter that we don't sleep
It really doesn't matter, it really doesn't matter at all

And it really doesn't matter that we don't eat
And it really doesn't matter that we don't sleep
It really doesn't matter, it really doesn't matter at all




Run away
The Coors


Say it's true, there's nothing like me and you
Not alone, tell me you feel it too
And I would runaway
I would runaway, yeah
I would runaway
I would runaway with you
.
(Chorus)
Cause I have fallen in love
With you, no never have
I'm never gonna stop falling in love, with you
.
Close the door, lay down upon the floor
And by candlelight, make love to me through the night

Cause I have runaway
I have runaway, yeah
I have runaway, runaway
I have runaway with you
(Chorus)
.
And I would runaway
I would runaway, yeah
I would runaway
I would runaway with you
.
(Chorus)






What Can I do
The Coors


I haven't slept at all in days
It's been so long since we've talked
And I have been here many times
I just don't know what I'm doing wrong

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there

There's only so much I can take
And I just got to let it go
And who knows I might feel better
If I don't try and I don't hope

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there


No more waiting, No more aching
No more fighting, No more trying

Maybe there's nothing more to say
And in a funny way I'm calm
Because the power is not mine
I'm just gonna let it fly

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there

Love me..






25 Minutes
Michael learn to Rock

After some time I've finally made up my mind
She is the girl and I really want to make her mine
I'm searching everywhere to find her again
To tell her I love her
And I'm sorry 'bout the things I've done

I find her standing in front of the church
The only place in town where I didn't search
She looks so happy in her wedding dress
But she's crying while she's saying this

Chorus:
Boy I missed your kisses all the time but this is
Twenty five minutes too late
Though you travelled so far boy I'm sorry you are
Twenty five minutes too late

Against the wind I'm going home again
Wishing be back to the time when we were more than
Friends

Still I see her in front of the church
The only place in town where I didn't search
She looks so happy in her wedding dress
But she's cried while she's saying this

Chorus

Out in the streets
Places where hungry hearts have nothing to eat
Inside my head
Still I can hear the words she said

I can still hear what she said





You took my heart away
Michael learn to rock


Staring at the moon so blue
Turning all my thoughts to you
I was without hopes or dreams
Try to dull an inner scream
But you . . . saw me through . . .

Walking on a path of air
See your faces everywhere
As you melt this heart of stone
You take my hand to guide me home and now I'm in love

You took my heart away
When my whole world was grey
You gave me everything and a little bit more
And when it's cold at night
And you sleep by my side
You become the meaning of my life . . .

Living in a world so cold
You were there to warm my soul
You came to mend a broken heart
You gave my life a brand new start
And now . . . I 'm in love
You took my heart away
When my whole world was grey
You gave me everything and a little bit more
And when it's cold at night
And you sleep by my side
You become the meaning of my life . . .

Holding your hands
I won't fear tomorrow
Here where we stand
We'll never be alone

You took my heart away
When my whole world was grey
You gave me everything and a little bit more
And when it's cold at night
And you sleep by my side
You become the meaning of my life . . .
You become the meaning of my life . . .
You become the meaning
You become the meaning of my life . .





Paint my love
Michael learn to rock


From my youngest years
Till this moment here
I've never seen
Such a lovely queen

From the skies above
To the deepest love
I've never felt
Crazy like this before

Chorus:
Paint my love
You should paint my love
It's the picture of a thousand sunsets
It's the freedom of a thousand doves
Baby you should paint my love


Been around the world
Then I met you girl
It's like coming home
To a place I've known

Chorus:
Paint my love
You should paint my love
It's the picture of a thousand sunsets
It's the freedom of a thousand doves
Baby you should paint my love

Since you came into my life
The days before all fade to black and white
Since you came into my life
Everything has changed





Some day
Michael learn to rock


In my search for freedom
And peace of mind
I've left the memories behind
Wanna start a new life
But it seems to be rather absurd
When I know the truth
Is that I always think of you

Chorus:
Someday someway
Together we will be baby
I will take and you will take your time
We'll wait for our fate
Cos' nobody owns us baby
We can shake we can shake the rock



Try to throw the picture
Out of my mind
Try to leave the memories behind
Here by the ocean
Wave's carry voices from you
Do you know the truth
I am thinking of you too

Chorus:
Someday someway
Together we will be baby...
The love we had together
Just fades away in time
And now you've got your own world
And I guess I've got mine
But the passion that you planted
In the middle of my heart
Is a passion that will never stop





Sleeping Child
Michael learn to rock


The milky way upon the
Heavens
Is twinkling just for you
And mr. moon he came by
To say goodnight to you
I'll sing for you i'll
Sing for mother
We're praying for the world
And for the people everywhere
Gonna show them all we care

Chorus:
Oh my sleeping child the world's so wild
But you've build your own paradise
That's one reason why I'll cover you sleeping child
If all the people around
The world
They had a mind like yours

We'd have no fighting and no wars
There would be lasting peace on earth
If all the kings and all
The leaders
Could see you here this way
They would hold the earth in their arms
They would learn to watch you play

Chorus:
Oh my sleeping child the world's so wild
But you've build your own paradise
That's one reason why I'll cover you sleeping child
I'm gonna cover my
Sleeping child
Keep you away from the world so wild





Heal the world
Michael Jackson


There's a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow.
And if you really try
You'll find there's no need to cry
In this place you'll feel
There's no hurt or sorrow.

There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space, make a better place.

Chorus:
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.


If you want to know why
There's a love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares for joyful giving.
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear or dread
We stop existing and start living

Then it feels that always
Love's enough for us growing
Make a better world, make a better world.

Chorus:
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race.
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.

Bridge:
And the dream we would conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earth, crucify it's soul
Though it's plain to see, this world is heavenly
Be God's glow.

We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel
You are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we'll cry happy tears
See the nations turn
Their swords into plowshares

We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space to make a better place.

Chorus:
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.
Refrain (2x)
There are people dying if you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me.
There are people dying if you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me.

You and for me / Make a better place
You and for me / Make a better place
You and for me / Make a better place
You and for me / Heal the world we live in
You and for me / Save it for our children
You and for me / Heal the world we live in
You and for me / Save it for our children
You and for me / Heal the world we live in
You and for me / Save it for our children
You and for me / Heal the world we live in
You and for me / Save it for our children





Never say good bye
Bon jovi


As I sit in this smokey room
The night about to end
I pass my time with strangers
But this bottle's my only friend

Remember when we used to park
On Butler Street out in the dark
Remember when we lost the keys
And you lost more than that in my backseat

Remember when we used to talk
About busting out - we'd break their hearts
Together - forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin' on - we got to try
Holdin' on to never say goodbye

Remember days of skipping school
Racing cars and being cool
With a six pack and the radio
We didn't need no place to go

Remember at the prom that night
You and me we had a fight
But the band they played our favorite song
And I held you in my arms so strong

We danced so close
We danced so slow
And I swore I'd never let you go
Together - forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin' on - we got to try
Holdin' on to never say goodbye

I guess you'd say we used to talk
About busting out
We'd break their hearts
Together - forever
Hey man I'm alive I'm takin' each day and night at a time





Can’t take my eyes off you
Gloria Gaynor


You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive
You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off of you
Pardon the way that I stare
There's nothing else to compare
The sight of you leaves me weak
There are no words left to speak
So if you feel like I feel
Please let me know that it's real
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you

chorus:
I love you baby and if it's quite all right
I need you baby to warm the lonely nights
I love you baby, trust in me when I say
Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray
Oh pretty baby, now that I've found you stay
And let me love you baby, let me love you





Knockin’ on heaven’s door
Gun’s n roses


Mama take this badge from me
I can't use it anymore
It's getting dark too dark to see
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door

Mama put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore
That cold black cloud is comin' down
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door





Love is on the way
Saigon kick


Lonely sidewalks, silent night.
Bring the evening, deep inside.
Hold me darling, touch me now.
Let the feelings free tonight.

Love is on the way. I can see it in your eyes.
Lets give it one more try tonight baby. x 2

Time of season wipes the tears.
No rhyme or reason. No more fears.
All the dreaming, far behind.
You are here now. Everything's alright.

In the morning I'll be gone away.
All the things, I left behind.
If you need me, I'll come night or day.
Let's stop the hands of time.





Easy
Lionel richie


Know it sounds funny
But I just can't stand the pain
Girl I'm leaving you tomorrow
Seems to me girl
You know I've done all I can
You see I begged, stole
And I borrowed

Ooh, that's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning

Why in the world
Would anyboddy put charms on eme?
I've paid my dues to make it
Everbody wants me to be
What they want me to be
I'm not happy when I try to fake it!
No!

Ooh,that's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning

I wanna be high, so high
I wanna be free to know
The things I do are right
I wanna be free

Just me, babe!
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
Because I'm easy
Easy like Sunday morning
Because I'm easy
Easy like Sunday morning





Now and Forever
Richard marx


Whenever I'm weary from the battles that rage in my head
You make sense of madness
when my sanity hangs by a thread
I lose my way but still you seem to understand
Now and forever
I will be your man

Sometimes I just hold you
Too caught up in me to see
I'm holding a fortune
that heaven has given to me
I'll try to show you each and every way I can

Now and forever
I will be you man
Now I can rest my worries and always be sure
That I won't be alone anymore
If I'd only known you were there
all the time
All this time

Until the day the ocean doesn't touch the sand
Now and forever
I will be your man
Now and forever
I will be your man





I will always love you
Whitney Houston


If I should stay,
I would only be in your way.
So I'll go, but I know
I'll think of you ev'ry step of the way.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
You, my darling you. Hmm.

Bittersweet memories
that is all I'm taking with me.
So, goodbye. Please, don't cry.
We both know I'm not what you, you need.


And I will always love you.
I will always love you.

(Instrumental solo)

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of.
And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
But above all this, I wish you love.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I, I will always love you.

You, darling, I love you.
Ooh, I'll always, I'll always love you.




Greatest love of all
Whitney Houston


I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

Chorus:
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe

No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Chorus
And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love




When You Believe
Whitney Houston


Many nights we pray
With no proof anyone could hear
And our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understand
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we know we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who know what miracle
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
And now I am standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say
There can be miracles
When you believe (When you believe)
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who know what miracle
You can achieve (You can achieve)
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fear
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see you way safe through the rain
Thought of a still resilient voice
Says love is very near

There can be miracles (miracles)
When you believe (When you believe)
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who know what miracles
You can achieve (You can achieve)
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe
You will when you believe
You will when you believe
Just believe
You will when you believe





I have nothing
Whitney Houston


Share my life,
Take me for what I am.
'Cause I'll never change
All my colors for you.

Take my love,
I'll never ask for too much,
Just all that you are
And everything that you do.

I don't really need to look
Very much further/farther,
I don't wanna have to go
Where you don't follow.
I'm holding it back again,
This passion inside.
Can't run from myself,
There's nowhere to hide.

Chorus:
Don't make me close one more door,
I don't wanna hurt anymore.
Stay in my arms if you dare,
Or must I imagine you there.
Don't walk away from me.

I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you (you, you, you./If I don't have you, oh, oo.)

You see through,
Right to the heart of me.
You break down my walls
With the strength of your love.

I never knew
Love like I've known it with you.
Will a memory survive,
One I can hold on to?

I don't really need to look
Very much further/farther,
I don't wanna have to go
Where you don't follow.
I will hold it back again,
This passion inside.
Can't run from myself,
There's nowhere to hide.
(Your love I'll remember forever.)

(Chorus 2x)





Unbreak my heart
Toni Braxton


Don't leave me in all this pain
Don't leave me out in the rain
Come back and bring back my smile
Come and take these tears away
I need your arms to hold me now
The nights are so unkind
Bring back those nights when I held you beside me

Un-break my heart
Say you'll love me again
Undo this hurt you caused
When you walked out the door
And walked out of my life
Un-cry these tears
I cried so many nights
Un-break my heart
My heart

Take back that sad word good-bye
Bring back the joy to my life
Don't leave me here with these tears
Come and kiss this pain away
I can't forget the day you left
Time is so unkind
And life is so cruel without you here beside me


Un-break my heart
Say you'll love me again
Undo this hurt you caused
When you walked out the door
And walked out of my life
Un-cry these tears
I cried so many nights
Un-break my heart
My heart

Don't leave me in all this pain
Don't leave me out in the rain
Bring back the nights when I held you beside me

Un-break my heart
Say you'll love me again
Undo this hurt you caused
When you walked out the door
And walked out of my life
Un-cry this tears
I cried so many, many nights
Un-break my

Un-break my heart oh baby
Come back and say you love me
Un-break my heart
Sweet darlin'
Without you I just can't go on
Can't go on....





Too love you more
Celine Dion


Take me back in the arms I love
Need me like you did before
Touch me once again
And remember when
There was no one that you wanted more

Don't go you know you will break my heart
She won't love you like I will
I'm the one who'll stay
When she walks away
And you know I'll be standing here still

I'll be waiting for you
Here inside my heart
I'm the one who wants to love you more
You will see I can give you
Everything you need
Let me be the one to love you more


See me as if you never knew
Hold me so you can't let go
Just believe in me
I will make you see
All the things that your heart needs to know

Here inside my heart
I'm the one who wants to love you more
You will see I can give you
Everything you need

Whatever it takes we'll find a way

Here inside my heart
I'm the one who wants to love you more
You will see I can give you
Everything you need
Let me be the one to love you more





That’s the way it is
Celine Dion


I can read your mind
And I know your story
I see what you're going through, yeah
It's an uphill climb
And I'm feeling sorry
But I know it will come to you, yeah

Don't surrender
'cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most
There's no easy way out
When you're ready to go
And your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

When you question me
For a simple answer
I don't know what to say, no
But it's plain to see
If you stick together
You're gonna find the way, yeah

So don't surrender
'Cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most
There's no easy way out
When you're ready to go
And your heart's left in doubt

Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is
That's the way it is

When life is empty
With no tomorrow
And loneliness starts to call
Baby don't worry
Forget your sorrow
'Cause love's gonna conquer it all... all

When you want it the most
There's no easy way out
When you're ready to go
And your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it

(And that's the way it is
When you want it the most
There's no easy way out
When you're ready to go
And your hearts left to doubt)

Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is
That's the way it is
That's the way it is
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is





Dance with my father
Luther Vandross

Back when I was a child
Before Life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me and then

Spin me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure
I was loved

If I could get another chance
Another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
How I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again

Ooh, ooh

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me,
yeah, yeah
Then finally make me do just what my mama said

Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he
Would be gone from me

If I could steal one final glance
One final step, one final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
'Cause I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how momma would cry for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me

I know I'm prayin' for much too much
But could You send back the only man she loved
I know You don't do it usually
But dear Lord, she's dyin' to dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep
And this is all I ever dream




I will be here for you
Michael W Smith


When you feel the sunlight
Fade into the cold night
Don't know where to turn
You don't know where to turn
And all the dreams you're dreaming
Seem to lose their meaning
Let me in your world
Let me in your world
All you need is someone you can hold
Don't be sad
You're not alone

(CHORUS)

I will be here for you
Somewhere in the night
Somewhere in the night
I'll shine a light for you
Somewhere in the night
I'll be standing by
I will be here for you

In this world of strangers
Of cold unfriendly faces
There's someone you can trust
Someone you can trust
I will be your shelter
I'll give you my shoulder
Just reach out for my love
Reach out for my love
Call my name
And my heart will hear
I'll be there
There's nothing to fear

(CHORUS)





Said I love you but I lied
Michael Bolton


You are the candle, love's the flame
A fire that burns through wind and rain
Shine your light on this heart of mine
Till the end of time
You came to me like the dawn through the night
Just shinin' like the sun
Out of my dreams and into my life
You are the one, you are the one

Chorus
Said I loved you but I lied
'cause this is more than love I feel inside
Said I loved you but I was wrong
'cause love could never ever feel so strong
Said I loved you but I lied

With all my soul I've tried in vain
How can mere words my heart explain
This taste of heaven so deep so true
I've found in you
So many reasons in so many ways
My life has just begun
Need you forever, I need you to stay
You are the one, you are the one

Chorus

You came to me like the dawn through the night
Just shinin' like the sun
Out of my dreams and into my life
You are the one, you are the one

Chorus

Said I loved you
But this is more than love I feel inside
Said I loved you....but I lied





I still believe in you
Vince Gill

Everybody wants a little piece of my time
But still I put you at the end of the line
How it breaks my heart to cause you this pain
To see the tears you cry fallin' like rain

Give me the chance to prove
And I'll make it up to you

I still believe in you
With a love that will always be
Standing so strong and true
Baby I still believe in you and me
Somewhere along the way, I guess I just lost track
Only thinkin' of myself never lookin' back
For all the times I've hurt you, I apologize
I'm sorry it took so long to finally realize

Give me the chance to prove
That nothing's worth losing you

I still believe in you
With a love that will always be
Standing so strong and true
Baby I still believe in you and me





I don’t wanna miss a thing
Aerosmith


I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
Far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Well, every moment spent with you
Is a moment I treasure

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

Lying close to you
Feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
And I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever, forever and ever

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
I don't wanna miss one smile
I don't wanna miss one kiss
Well, I just wanna be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
'Cause I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna fall asleep, yeah
I don't wanna miss a thing






Good bye
Air Supply


I can see the pain living in your eyes
And I know how hard you try
You deserve to have so much more
I can feel your heart and I sympathize
And I'll never criticize
All you've ever meant to my life

I don't want to let you down
I don't want to lead you on
i don't want to hold you back
From where you might belong

You would never ask me why
My heart is so disguised
I just can't live a lie anymore
I would rather hurt myself
Than to ever make you cry
There's nothing left to say but goodbye


You deserve the chance at the kind of love
I'm not sure i'm worthy of
Losing you is painful to me

I don't want to let you down
I don't want to lead you on
I don't want to hold you back
From where you might belong

You would never ask me why
My heart is so disguised
I just can't live a lie anymore
I would rather hurt myself
Than to ever make you cry
There's nothing left to say but goodbye

You would never ask me why
My heart is so disguised
I just can't live a lie anymore
I would rather hurt myself
Than to ever make you cry
There's nothing left to try
Though it's gonna hurt us both
There's no other way than to say goodbye




Making love Out of nothing at all
Air Supply


I know just how to whisper
And I know just how to cry
I know just where to find the answers
And I know just how to lie
I know just how to fake it
And I know just how to scheme
I know just when to face the truth
And then I know just when to dream

And I know just where to touch you
And I know just what to prove
I know when to pull you closer
And I know when to let you loose
And I know the night is fading
And I know the time's gonna fly
And I'm never gonna tell you
Everything I gotta tell you
But I know I gotta give it a try

And I know the roads to riches
And I know the ways to fame
I know all the rules
And I know how to break 'em
And I always know the name of the game

But I don't know how to leave you
And I'll never let you fall
And I don't know how you do it
Making love out of nothing at all

Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Everytime I see you all the rays of the sun
Are streaming through the waves in your hair
And every star in the sky is taking aim at your eyes
Like a spotlight

The beating of my heart is a drum and it's lost
And it's looking for a rhythm like you
You can take the darkness from the pit of the night
And turn into a beacon burning endlessly bright

I've gotta follow it 'cause everything I know
Well it's nothing till I give it to you

I can make the runner stumble
I can make the final block
And I can make every tackle at the sound of the whistle
I can make all the stadiums rock
I can make tonight forever
Or I can make it disappear by the dawn
I can make you every promise that has ever been made
I can make all your demons be gone

But I'm never gonna make it without you
Do you really want to see me crawl
And I'm never gonna make it like you do
Making love out of nothing at all

Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all
Making love, Out of nothing at all





(The Hardest Day)
The Coors


One more day, one last look
Before I leave it all behind
And play the role that's meant for us
That said we'd say goodbye

cuentame otra vez
si no es el mismo el sol de ayer el que se esconde hoy
para ti para mi para nadie mas se ha inventado el mar

If I promise to believe will you believe
That there's nowhere that we'd rather be
Nowhere describes where we are
I've no choice, I love you leave,
Love you wave goodbye

And all I ever wanted was to stay
And nothing in this world's gonna change, change

Never wanna wake up from this night
Never wanna leave this moment
Waiting for you only, only you
Never gonna forget every single thing you do
When loving you is my finest hour
Leaving you, the hardest day of my life
The hardest day of my life

Dejame que te de cada segundo
envuelto en un atardecer de vida
para ti para mi para nadie mas se ha inventado el mar

But I never will regret a single day
Y ninguno sabia muy bien que hacer
What I'm feeling for you
aquella noche noche
I will always love you leave,
Love you wave goodbye

ieieiei este, and all I ever wanted was to stay
maldito atardecer
Nothing in this world's gonna change...

Never wanna wake up from this night
Never wanna leave this moment
Waiting for you only, only you
Never gonna forget every single thing you do
When loving you is my finest hour
I never knew I'd ever feel this way
I feel for you...

Never wanna wake up, I feel for you, from this night
Never wanna leave this moment
Wainting for you only, only you
Never gonna forget every single thing you do
When loving you is my finest hour
Leaving you, the hardest day of my life...
Never wanna wake up from this night...





Summer Sunshine
The Coors


Everyone's changing, I stay the same
I'm... a solo cello outside a chor-us
I've got a secret,
It's time for me to tell that you've been keeping me warm

Just sweet beginnings and bitter en-dings
In coffee city, we borrowed hea-ven
Don't give it back, I've never felt so wanted
Are you taking me home?

You tell me you have to go...

[Chorus:]
In the heat of summer sunshine
I miss you like nobody else
In the heat of summer sunshine
I kiss you, and nobody needs to know

Now that you've left me, there's no retur-ning
I keep comparing, you're always win-ning
I try to be strong but you'll never be more wanted
Will you make me at home?

Don't tell me you have to go...
[Chorus:]
In the heat of summer sunshine
I miss you like nobody else
In the heat of summer sunshine
I kiss you, and nobody needs to know

Ya da... ya da... ya da

To sweet beginnings and bitter en-dings
In coffee city, we borrowed hea-ven
Don't give it back
Winter is coming and I need to stay warm

The heat.....

[Chorus:]
In the heat of summer sunshine
I miss you like nobody else
In the heat of summer sunshine
I kiss you, and nobody knows

[Chorus:]
In the heat of summer sunshine
I miss you like nobody else
In the heat of summer sunshine
I kiss you, and nobody needs to know





"Hotel California"
The Eagles


On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
'This could be Heaven or this could be Hell'
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes Benz
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain,
'Please bring me my wine'
He said, 'We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine'
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'
And in the master's chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
'Relax,' said the night man,
'We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave!'





Nothing gonna change my love for you
Glenn Medeiros


If I had to live my life without you near me
The days would all be empty
The nights would seem so long
With you I see forever oh so clearly
I might have been in love before
But it never felt this strong
Our dreams are young and we both know
They'll take us where we want to go

Hold me now
Touch me now
I don't want to live without you

Chorus:
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I LOVE YOU
One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love


Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by know how much I LOVE YOU
The world may change my whole life thru but
NOTHING'S GONNA CHANGE MY LOVE FOR YOU

If the road ahead is not so easy
Our love will lead the way for us
Like a guiding star
I'll be there for you
If you should need me
You don't have to change a thing
I love you just the way you are
So come with me and share the view
I'll help you see forever too
Hold me now
Touch me now
I don't want to live without you




Soldier of fortune
Deep purple


I have often told you stories
About the way
I lived the life of a drifter
Waiting for the day
When I'd take your hand
And sing you songs
Then maybe you would say
Come lay with me love me
And I would surely stay

But I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune

Many times I've been a traveler
I looked for something new
In days of old
When nights were cold
I wandered without you
But those days I thougt my eyes
Had seen you standing near
Though blindness is confusing
It shows that you're not here

Now I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune
I can hear the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune




Burn
Deep purple


The sky is red, I don't understand,
past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
The city's a blaze, the town's on fire.
The woman's flames are reaching higher.
We were fools, we called her liar.
All I hear is "Burn!"

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm.
She said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return."
The people laughed till she said, "Burn!"
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin', we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"

You know we had no time,
we could not even try.
You know we had no time.

You know we had no time,
we could not even try.
You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don't understand,
past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!




Just take my heart
MR. Big


It's late at night and neither one of us is sleeping
I can't imagine living my life after you're gone
Wondering why so many questions have no answers
I keep on searching for the reason why we went wrong

Where is our yesterday
You and I could use it right now
But if this is goodbye


Just take my heart when you go
I don't have the need for it anymore
I'll always love you, but you're hard to hold
Just take my heart when you go

Here we are about to take the final step now
I just can't fool myself, I know there's no turing back
Face to face it's been endless conversation
But when the love is gone you're left with nothing but talk


I'd give my everything
If only I could turn you around
But if this is goodbye


Just take my heart when you go
I don't have the need for it anymore
I'll always love you but you're hard to hold
Just take my heart when you go





To be with you
MR. Big


Hold on little girl
Show me what he's done to you
Stand up little girl
A broken heart can't be that bad
When it's through, it's through
Fate will twist the both of you

So come on baby, come on over
Let me be the one to show you

I'm the one who wants to be with you
Deep inside I hope you feel it too
Waited on a line of greens and blues
Just to be the next to be with you

Build up your confidence
So you can be on top for once
Wake up who cares about
Little boys that talk too much
I've seen it all go down
Your game of love was all rained out

So come on baby, come on over
Let me be the one to hold you
I'm the one who wants to be with you
Deep inside I hope you feel it too
Waited on a line of greens and blues
Just to be the next to be with you

Why be alone when we can be together baby
You can make my life worthwhile
I can make you start to smile

When it's through, it's through
Fate will twist the both of you
So come on baby, come on over
Let me be the one to show you

I'm the one who wants to be with you
Deep inside I hope you feel it too
Waited on a line of greens and blues
Just to be the next to be with you

I'm the one who wants to be with you
Deep inside I hope you feel it too
Waited on a line of greens and blues
Just to be the next to be with you

Just to be the next to be with you
Oooooowh




Wild World
MR. Big


La...la...la...la...la
Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you want to start something new
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving
Baby I'm grieving

And if you wanna leave take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
A lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
(yeah...) oh baby, it's a wild world


I'll always remember you like a child girl

You know I've seen a lot of
What the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
Coz I never want to see you sad girl
Don't be a bad girl

But if you wanna leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice freinds out there
Just remember there's
A lot of bad and beware

La...la...la...la...la...baby I love you.





Stairway to heaven
Led Zeppelin


There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven
It makes me wonder

There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west
and my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking
And it makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forest will echo with laughter

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May queen
Yes there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
And it makes me wonder

Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whisperin' wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying a stairway to heaven...





Love of my live
Queen


Love of my life - you've hurt me
You've broken my heart and now you leave me
Love of my life can't you see
Bring it back, bring it back
Don't take it away from me
because you don't know -
what it means to me.

Love of my life don't leave me
You've stolen my love
you now desert me
Love of my life can't you see

Bring it back, bring it back
Don't take it away from me because you don't know
what it means to me.
You will remember -
When this is blown over
And everything's all by the way
When I grow older
I will be there at your side to remind you
how I still love you - I still love you
Back - hurry back
Please bring it back home to me
because you don't know what it means to me-

Love of my life
Love of my life...





We are the Champion
Queen


I've paid my dues -
Time after time -
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime -
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face -
But I've come through
(And we mean to go on and on and on and on)

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world


I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls -
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it,
I thank you all -

But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise -
I consider it a challenge before all the human race -
And I ain't gonna lose -
(And we mean to go on and on and on and on)

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions




Something stupid
Robbie William & Nicole Kidman


I know I stand in line
Until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance
I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you

I can see it in your eyes
That you despise the same old lines
You heard the night before
And though it's just a line to you
For me it's true
And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever
lines to say
To make the meaning come true
But then I think I'll wait until the evening
gets late
And I'm alone with you

The time is right
Your perfume fills my head
The stars get red
And oh the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you
I love you...




Leaving on the jet plane
Chantal Creviazuk

All my bags are packed
Im ready to go
Im standin here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin
Its early morn
The taxis waitin
Hes blowin his horn
Already Im so lonesome
I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that youll wait for me
Hold me like youll never let me go
Cause Im leavin on a jet plane
Dont know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Theres so many times Ive let you down
So many times Ive played around
but I tell you now, they dont mean a thing
Every place I go, I think of you
Every song I sing, I sing for you
When I come back, Ill wear your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that youll wait for me
Hold me like youll never let me go
Cause Im leavin on a jet plane
Dont know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time
Let me kiss you
And close your eyes and
Ill be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I wont have to leave alone
About the times, That I wont have to say

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that youll wait for me
Hold me like youll never let me go
Cause Im leavin on a jet plane
Dont know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But, Im leavin on a jet plane
Dont know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

And I'm Leaving on a jet plane
Leaving on a jet plane
Leaving on a Jet plane
Leaving on a jet plane
Leaving on a jet plane





Sometime when we touch
Barry Manilow


You asked me if I loved you
and I choked on my reply
I rather hurt you honestly
than miss lead you with a lie
and who am I to judge you
on what you say or do
I'm only just beginning
to see the real you

Chorus :
and sometimes when we touch
the honesty to much
and I have to close my eyes and hide
I want to hold you 'til I die
'til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you 'til
the fear in me subsides

romancing all his strategie
leaves me battling with my pride
but through the insecurity
some tenderness survives
I'm just another writer
still trapped within my truths
a hesatant prized fighter
still trapped within my youth

Chorus :
and sometimes when we touch
the honesty to much
and I have to close my eyes and hide
I want to hold you 'til I die
'til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you 'til
the fear in me subsides

at times I like to break you
and drag you to your knees
at times I like to break through
and hold you endlessly
at times I understand you
and I know how hard you've tried
I watched why love comands you
and I watched love pass you by
at times I think we're drifters
still searching for a friend
a brother or a sister
but then the passion flares again

Chorus :
and sometimes when we touch
the honesty to much
and I have to close my eyes and hide
I want to hold you 'til I die
'til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you 'til
the fear in me subsides




How Am I supposed to live without U
Branigan Laura


I could hardly believe it when I heard the news today
I had to come and get it straight from you
They said you were leaving, someone swept your heart away
From the look upon your face I see it's true
So tell me all about it, tell me 'bout the plans you're makin'
Then tell me one thing more before I go

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I've been lovin' you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
And how am I supposed to carry on
When all that I've been livin' for is gone
Didn't come here for cryin', didn't come here to break down
It's just a dream of mine is comin' to an end
How can I blame you when I built my world around
The hope that one day we'd be so much more than friends
And I don't wanna know the price I'm gonna pay for dreamin'
I need you know, it's more than I can take

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I've been lovin' you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
And how am I supposed to carry on
When all that I've been livin' for is gone
And I don't wanna know the price I'm gonna pay for dreamin'
Now that your dream has come true
Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I've been loving you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
And how am I supposed to carry on
All that I've been livin' for is gone
Without you, after I've been lovin' you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
And how am I supposed to carry on
When all that I've been ...





I just call to say I love U
Stevie Wonder


No New Year's Day to celebrate
No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away
No first of spring
No song to sing
In fact here's just another ordinary day

No April rain
No flowers bloom
No wedding Saturday within the month of June
But what it is, is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

No summer's high
No warm July
No harvest moon to light one tender August night
No autumn breeze
No falling leaves
Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies
No Libra sun
No Halloween
No giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring
But what it is, though old so new
To fill your heart like no three words could ever do

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart,
of my heart

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart,
baby of my heart





A Whole New World
Peabo Bryson n Regina Velazquez


I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?
I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming
A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But, now, from way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky
A whole new world
(Don't you dare close your eyes)
A hundred thousand things to see
(Hold your breath it gets better)
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be
A whole new world
With new horizons to pursue
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
(Every turn a surprise)
With new horizons to pursue
(Every moment red-letter)
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Anywhere, there's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you
A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me





It’s all coming back to me
Celine Dion


But when you touch me like this
And you hold me like that
I just have to admit
That it's all coming back to me
When I touch you like this
And I hold you like that
It's so hard to believe but
It's all coming back to me
(It's all coming back, it's all coming back to me now)

There were moments of gold
And there were flashes of light
There were things I'd never do again
But then they'd always seemed right
There were nights of endless pleasure
It was more than any laws allow
Baby Baby

If I kiss you like this
And if you whisper like that
It was lost long ago
But it's all coming back to me
If you want me like this
And if you need me like that
It was dead long ago
But it's all coming back to me
It's so hard to resist
And it's all coming back to me
I can barely recall
But it's all coming back to me now
But it's all coming back

There were those empty threats and hollow lies
And whenever you tried to hurt me
I just hurt you even worse
And so much deeper

There were hours that just went on for days
When alone at last we'd count up all the chances
That were lost to us forever

But you were history with the slamming of the door
And I made myself so strong again somehow
And I never wasted any of my time on you since then

But if I touch you like this
And if you kiss me like that
It was so long ago
But it's all coming back to me
If you touch me like this
And if I kiss you like that
It was gone with the wind
But it's all coming back to me
(It's all coming back, it's all coming back to me now)

There were moments of gold
And there were flashes of light
There were things we'd never do again
But then they'd always seemed right
There were nights of endless pleasure
It was more than all your laws allow
Baby, Baby, Baby

When you touch me like this
And when you hold me like that
It was gone with the wind
But it's all coming back to me
When you see me like this
And when I see you like that
Then we see what we want to see
All coming back to me
The flesh and the fantasies
All coming back to me
I can barely recall
But it's all coming back to me now

If you forgive me all this
If I forgive you all that
We forgive and forget
And it's all coming back to me
When you see me like this
And when I see you like that
We see just what we want to see
Al coming back to me
The flesh and the fantasies
All coming back to me
I can barely recall but it's all coming back to me now

(It's all coming back to me now)
And when you kiss me like this
(It's all coming back to me now)
And when I touch you like that
(It's all coming back to me now)
If you do it like this
(It's all coming back to me now)
And if we, , ,




Careless Whisper
George Michael


I feel so unsure,
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor.
As the music dies...
Something in your eyes,
Calls to mind a silver screen,
And all those sad goodbyes.

CHORUS
I'm never gonna dance again,
Guilty feet have got no rhythm.
Though it's easy to pretend,
I know you're not a fool.

I should have no better than to cheat a friend,
And waste the chance that I'd been given.
So I'm never gonna dance again,
The way I danced with you.
CHORUS

Time can never mend,
The careless whispers of a good friend.
To the heart and mind,
If your answer's kind...
There's no comfort in the truth,
Pain is all you'll find.

REPEAT CHORUS

What am I without your love?
Tonite the music seems so loud,
I wish that we could lose the crowd.
Maybe it's better this way,
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say.

We could have been so good together,
We could have made this last forever...
But now, who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay.
(Alternatively):
And now it's never gonna be
That way...

REPEAT CHORUS

Now that you're gone...
Now that you're gone...
Now that you're gone...
Was what I did so wrong?
So wrong that you had to leave me alone?




To night I Celebrate My Love
Peabo Bryson


Tonight, I celebrate my love for you
It seems like the natural thing to do
Tonight, no one's gonna find us
We'll leave the world behind us
When I make love to you.

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you
And hope, that deep inside you feel it too
Tonight our spirits will be climbing
To a sky lit up with diamonds
When I make love to you,
Tonight.

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you
And that midnight song
Is gonna come shining through
Tonight, there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do
Is to get close to you
Tonight.




Tonight, I celebrate my love for you
And soon this old world will seem brand new
Tonight, we will both discover
How friends turn into lovers
When I make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
and that midnight song
Is gonna come shining through
Tonight, there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do
Is to get close to you

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you
Tonight






Shania Twain
From This Moment


(I do swear that I`ll always be there.
I`d give anything
and everything and I will always care. Through weakness
and strength, happiness and sorrow, for better, for worse,
I will love you with every beat of my heart.)

From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your love I`d give my last breath
From this moment on

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can`t wait to live my life with you, can`t wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn`t give
From this moment on

You`re the reason I believe in love
And you`re the answer to my prayers from up above
All we need is just the two of us
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn`t give
From this moment
I will love you as long as I live
From this moment on







Bosson
One in a Million


You`re one in a million
Oh
Now
You`re one in a million
Oh

Sometimes I can`t hate you every day
Sometimes you can fall for everyone you see
Only one can really make me stay
A sign from the sky
Said to me

[Chorus]
You`re one in a million
You`re once in a lifetime
You made me discover all the stars above us
You`re one in a million
You`re once in a lifetime
You made me discover all the stars above us

I`ve been looking for that special one
And I`ve been searching for someone to give my love
And when I thought that all the hope was gone
You smile, there you were and I was gone

I always will remember how I felt that day
A feeling indescribable to me
Yeah
I always knew there was an answer for my prayer
And you, you`re the one for me

[Chorus x 2]

I was cool and everything was possible
You tried to catch me but it wasn`t possible
Nobody could hurt me it was my game
Until I met you baby and went insane
And when you didn`t want me, I wanted you
Because the finer thing bout it was I like to go
I like it when its difficult I like it when it`s hard
You know it`s worth it if ya find your heart

[Chorus x 2]

You`re one in a million
Oh
You`re one in a million
