Every Little Star | Crying
Sixteen Reasons | Except The New Girl

back

  Every Little Star

I've told every little star
Just how sweet I think you are
Why have'nt I told you

I've told ripples in a brook
Made my heart an open book
Why have'nt I told you

Friends ask me "am I in love"
I always answer "yes"
Might as well confess
If I don't they guess

Maybe you may know it too
Oh my darling if you do
Why haven't you told me

(by Linda Scott)

  Crying

on soundtrack sung in Spanish by Rebekah del Rio ("Llorando")

I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while
But I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say "Hello"
Aww you wished me well, you couldnít tell

That Iíd been cry-i-i-i-ng over you, cry-i-i-i-ng over you
Then you said "so long". left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying cry-i-ing
Itís hard to understand but the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you but itís tru-ue, so true
I love you even more than I did before but darling what can I do-o-o-o
For you donít love me and Iíll always be

Cry-i-i-i-ng over you, cry-i-i-i-ng over you
Yes, now youíre gone and from this moment on
Iíll be crying, crying, crying, cry-i-i-ing
Yeah crying, crying, o-o-o-o-ver you

Words and Music by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson

  Sixteen Reasons

(Sixteen reasons)
Why I (why I) love you

(One) the way you hold my hand
(Two) your laughing eyes
(Three) the way you understand
(Four) your secret sighs
They're all part of sixteen reasons why I (why I) love you

(Five) the way you comb your hair
(Six) your freckled nose
(Seven) the way you say you care
(Eight) your crazy clothes
That's just half of sixteen reasons why I (why I) love you

(Nine) snuggling in the car
(Ten) your wish upon a star
(Eleven) whispering on the phone
(Twelve) your kiss when we're alone

(Thirteen) the way you thrill my heart
(Fourteen) your voice so neat
(Fifteen) you say we'll never part
(Sixteen) our love's complete
Those are all of sixteen reasons why I (why I) love you

(Sixteen reasons)
Why I (why I) love you

(music & lyrics by Bill Post and Doree Post)

  Except The New Girl

(mentioned in pilot script, song not included in film or on soundtrack)

Drive your mustang down
To where you hang out
Alone without a friend
Girls walk by you
Some in fact have tried you
Once they tried they never tried again
Except the new girl
Except the new girl

Alone and lonesome
Trusting no one
They say you never had a friend
People talk about you
They say they doubt you really
Ever let anybody in
Except the new girl
Except the new girl

I guess there's never been anyone else
Except the new girl
Except the new girl

Last time I saw him
He was laughing
She was standing by his side
I've got a feeling
That they're still together
From the look that was in his eyes
There's no one
Except the new girl
Except the new girl

See him smile
He don't care
Said he loves her
And he'll always love her
See him smile
It seems fair
That he finally found her
Finally hold her
There's no one
Except the new girl
Except the new girl
Except the new girl

(music & lyric by Chris Isaak)
