  • You got me looking at that heaven in your eyes
    I was chasing your direction
    I was telling you no lies
    And I was loving you
    When the words are said, baby, I lose my head
    And in a world of people, there's only you and I
    There ain't nothing come between us in the end
    How can I hold you when you ain't even mine
    Only you can see me through
    I leave it up to you

    Do it light, taking me through the night
    Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
    Give me more, drag me across the floor
    Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

    All that I need is just one moment in your arms
    I was chasing your affection
    I was doing you no harm
    And I was loving you
    Make it shine, make it rain, baby I know my way
    I need that sweet sensation of living in your love
    I can't breath when you're away, it pulls me down
    You are the question and the answer am I
    Only you can see me through
    I leave it up to you

    Do it light, taking me through the night
    Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
    Give me more, drag me across the floor
    Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

    And in this world of people there's only you and I
    There ain't nothing come between us in the end
    Ah, can I hold you when you ain't even mine
    Only you can see me through
    I leave it up to you

    Do it light, taking me through the night
    Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
    Give me more, drag me across the floor
    Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

    Do it light, taking me through the night
    Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
    Give me more, drag me across the floor
    Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

    Do it light, taking me through the night
    Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
    Give me more, drag me across the floor
    Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

    Do it light, taking me through the night
    Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
    Give me more, drag me across the floor
    Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

    Do it light, taking me through the night
    Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
    Give me more, drag me across the floor
    Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more Writer/s: BARRY GIBB, ANDY GIBB, MAURICE GIBB, ROBIN GIBB

  • Mitchell from Liverpool, UkCo-written with his brothers the Bee Gees. Earlier that day, they had had the afternoon off filming, and had written 'Too Much Heaven' and 'Tragedy' in that time. All three songs became US number ones.
  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenGibb was essentially the 4th Bee Gee, since he wrote his hit songs with them and they sang backup on them. He waxed as they waxed and then waned as they waned.
  • Agnes from GlasgowTo young an beautiful to forget took from us to Soon luv you Andy for ever and a day
  • Abigail from Lexington, KyThis was actually the very first song written by all four of the brothers. It was created one day while the Bee Gees were filming Srgt. Pepper.
  • Brian from Boston, MaAndy was a talented singer.He also played guitar rather well.I always have a little more respect for a pop star when they can actually play an instrument.The cocaine did him in.I never did coke but I know those who have. I see no appeal in the drug.I am perfectly capable of being paranoid and jittery without coke.Coke is a discusting drug.
  • Marty from San Francisco, CaThis was the third #1 from Gibb and the only solo artist to ever achieve this. It was written by all four Gibb Brothers.
