..the towering feeling..

..'and oh..the towering feeling...just to know that somewhere you are near'..



..I  met my Audrey..and the streets of Kota Bharu was where I skipped and jumped in youthful ectasy..I surrendered to the raging in my heart and all the pain and the conflicts  that came along with being in love...and how I struggled to keep it hidden.
..but, no..it was not yet time..and I fought against it..in fighting it I lost myself in the town that accepted me like a long, lost son..there were parties, nightclubs, hot dance-hostess who could do everything except dance and the band boys of Suara Kilat and The Streaks..I sang and I danced..but the tempest that whirled within refused to be quelled..I bought myself a Vespa..and found that every street, every road, every lane led to her house...

Soundtrack by Ms Eydie ‘Chap’ Goh Mei;

What I did for LOVE

Kiss today goodbye,
The sweetness and the sorrow
Wish me luck, the same to you
But I can't forget what I did for love,
What I did for love.

Look, my eyes are dry,
The gift was ours to borrow
It's as if we always knew
And I won't regret what I did for love,
What I did for love.

Gone, love is never gone,
As we travel on,
Love's what we'll remember.

Kiss today goodbye,
And point me toward tomorrow
We did what we had to do
Can't forget,
Won't regret what I did for love.
What I did for love...
What I did for love...
What I did for love.

Tommy
