Cab fare to nowhere is what you are A white line to an exit sign is what you are Oh but I saw in you, now I see through Don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you Long as the night will be, the sun will rise without you A locked door on a candy store is what you are A slim chance in tight pants is what you are All that I loved you for, I want it more Don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you Long as the night will be, the sun will rise without you You are giving what I'm not taking I'm not missing what we ain't making Oh but I saw in you, now I see through Don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you Long as the night will be, the sun will rise without you Don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you Long as the night will be, the sun will rise without you Don't shed no tears, I don't need a thing.

Ric from Sioux Falls SdThe man with a Golden Voice !
Margaret from ScotlandSaw Paul in January. His show was outstanding and if possible, I'd say voice is only getting better. Amazing.
Kayla from Winnipeg, MbThis is a really great song! I think that Paul Carrack is terribly underrated! He was great solo and with Mike + The Mechanics! My favourite song by him is "One Good Reason".. there is one part on that song that I play over and over and over again because it's just so good! I love it! <3
Keith from Philadelphia, PaSo underrated.........great track
Hanny from Roden, NetherlandsPaul Carrack has got one of the most beautiful voices.And I know for afact that he himself doesn't mind not having a superstardom career, but I think if he would ,he could. His style can sometimes be compared to the style of his friend Phil Collins.(Phil has been playing on some of the Mike & the mechanics albums and they have been touring together a few years ago)
Steve from Torrance, CaThe name of the album this song appeared on is "One Good Reason", not "When you walk in the room". Paul used producer Christopher Neil and drummer Peter Van Hooke from Mike + the Mechanics, guitarist Tim Renwick, and keyboardist Paul "Wix" Wickens.
Joshua from Twin Cities, MnOn the first Mike + The Mechanics album, Carrack actually sang lead on "Silent Running", NOT "All I Need Is A Miracle". "Miracle" was actually sung by the late Paul Young (not the same Paul Young who covered "Everytime You Go Away" that same year).
Joe from St. Louis, MoPaul Carrack wrote the song "Love Will Keep Us Alive" that was sung by Timothy B.Scmidt when he was with The Eagles reunion. Appears of Hell Freezes Over
Geri from Nova Scotia, CanadaPaul Carrack, in my opinion, could sing the telephone directory! One of Rock's most amazing voices.
Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
The Naughty by Nature hit "O.P.P." doesn't have any curse words, but many oversensitive radio stations played a "clean" version with the word "kitten" edited out, surely the first time that word was censured.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
