Pat Benatar
Heartbreaker
Lyrics:

Your love is like a tidal wave, spinning over my head
Drownin’ me in your promises, better left unsaid
You’re the right kind of dreamer, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be

You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, a love taker
Don’t you mess around with me
You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, a love taker
Don’t you mess around, no no no

Your love has set my soul on fire, burnin’ out of control
You taught me the ways of desire, now it’s takin’ its toll
You’re the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be

You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, a love taker
Don’t you mess around with me
You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, a love taker
Don’t you mess around, no no no

You’re the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, you know that you were born to be
You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don’t you mess around with me

You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don’t you mess around with me
You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don’t you mess around with me
You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Heartbreaker

Right Down the Line
Lyrics:

You know I need your love
You’ve got that hold over me
Long as I’ve got your love
You know that I’ll never leave
When I wanted you to share my life
I had no doubt in my mind
And it’s been you woman
Right down the line

I know how much I lean on you
Only you can see
The changes that I’ve been through
Have left a mark on me
You’ve been as constant as a Northern Star
The brightest light that shines
It’s been you, woman
Right down the line

I just want to say this is my way
Of tellin’ you everything
I could never say before
Yeah this is my way of tellin’ you
That every day I’m lovin’ you so much more
‘Cause you believed in me through my darkest night
Put somethin’ better inside of me
You brought me into the light
Threw away all those crazy dreams
I put them all behind
And it was you, woman
Right down the line

I just want to say this is my way
Of tellin’ you everything
I could never say before
Yeah this is my way of tellin’ you
That every day I’m lovin’ you so much more
If I should doubt myself
If I’m losing ground
I won’t turn to someone else
They’d only let me down
When I wanted you to share my life
I had no doubt in my mind
And it’s been you, woman
Right down the line

Etta James | At Last | Lyrics

Etta James singing “At Last” most likely, if not her most memorable song!

Etta James
At Last
Lyrics:

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song, oh yeah
At last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up clover the night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill I’ve never known, oh yeah
You smiled, you smiled oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven
For you are mine at last
Songwriters: Harry Warren / Mack Gordon
