The Degrassi Junior High Theme Song
(Manne/ Watson)

 

Wake up in the morning, feeling shy and lonely,
gee, I gotta go to school. 
I don't think I can make it, don't think I can take it,
I wonder what I'm gonna do. 
But when I look around and see,
that someone is smiling right at me,
wait, someoneís talkin' to me, hey, I gotta new friend. 
Everybody can succeed, all you need is to believe,
be honest with yourself, forget your fears and doubts,
come on give us a try at Degrassi Junior High.

 

 

The Degrassi High Theme Song

(Manne/ Watson)

 

 

Wake up in the morning, gotta shake this feeling,
I gotta face a day of school.  
What's to be afraid of ? I can ask a question, or maybe even bend a rule. 
I'm looking for a way so I can fit in, if there's a way if I can look, then I can win.
I can see I'm not alone, I can face the unknown. 
Everybody can succeed, in themselves, you must believe,
come on, give us a try at Degrassi High.

 

 

The Degrassi Talks Theme Song

(White/Mistysyn)

 

We've all got our problems
but can't always solve them
we need someone to listen
cause we all need some talkin'
no time to ignore
but we've got to explore
we can't have it all the way
let's do this together
I'll talk to you
and you'll talk to me
We've got to reach out to set us free
Degrassi Talks
Coast to coast we hear real stories from real people
Degrassi Talks
Degrassi Listens
You're not alone
Let's do this together
Degrassi Talks

 

 

 

All The Lovers in the World

(Lawrence Gowan)

 

With urgent hands

We excited

A fire so hot

Two lives were ignited

Now Iím left here on my own

But Iíll never be alone

 

CHORUS

Down forbidden streets I talk with

Every single step I walk with

All the lovers in the world (All the lovers in the world)

Though the lonely nightís returning
I can feel the flame thatís burning

All the lovers in the world (Allthe lovers in the world)

 

Virgin lips

I have tasted

Love so pure

Not a drop was wasted

Paradise we shared together

Lives inside of me forever

 

CHORUS

Since you touched me

I canít be free

This is every loverís destiny

 

CHORUS 2X

 

 

 

Everybody Wants Something

(Jeremiah/Wheeler/Simpson)

 

Everybody get ready and get into gear,
the Degrassi sensation,
the one and only,
Zit Remedy is here.* (The Zits are here)
Everybody wants something, they'll never give up.
Everybody wants something, they'll take your money and never give up.
Everybody face up to the facts as they are,
Dedication is hard but, you'll be somebody and you will go far.
Everybody wants something, they'll never give up.
Everybody wants something, they'll take your money and never give up.

 

*Lyrics changed for Degrassi High version

 

 

 

We Canít Look Back

(Sky/Shwartz)

 

Sometimes at night I get so scared

Cause I know tomorrow we might not be together.

I want to hold on to today

I wish that we could stay this way forever

I know we'll never feel so close again for each beginning

Something must end

 

We can't look back

No we can't look back

But when today is

Way back when

I'll still be your friend

 

So many things we haven't done

Time is not on our side any more

And all the promises we made

You taught me what dreaming is for

And though I know that this isn't goodbye

can't say a tear won't fall from my eye

 

We can't look back

No we can't look back

And when today is way back when

I may be different then

But I'll still be your friend

 

I never thought the day would come

We'd go our separate ways

But there's a part of you in me

And right hereís where it's gonna stay

 

We can't look back

No we can't look back

But when today is way back when

Look me up again

I may have gray hair then

But Iíll still be your friend

 

 

Iím In Love With a Girl Named Spike

(Park/Knackstedt/Miller/Nylander/Lundquist/Phelps)


There is a girl named Spike from Degrassi High
she had a baby when she was real young
Her best friend is a skinhead chick
she knows an Asian boy named Yick
and Caitlin she is very chic
but I'm still in love with a girl named Spike
I don't write love songs
in fact they make me very sick
but Spike the girl from Degrassi High
she's truly one cool chick
She has the best TV show
better than Beverly Hills 90210
and Shannon Doherty well she's ok
but I'm still in love with a girl named Spike

 

 

Cosmetics

(Lawrence Gowan)

 

Flew in from London

Only to shop 7th Avenue

Theyíve got what she wants

You just canít get it over there

Sheís so attractive

And sheíll do anything to stay that way

Moneyís no object to make a boy stop and stare.

 

CHORUS

High fashion model magazines

Runways of ageless beauty queens

Everything for the girl next door

Manhattan styles, Parisian look

Lipstick and cheekbones by the book

Sheíll never leave you wanting more.

 

Sheís so cosmo

Her eyes can talk to a camera

No imperfection

Protecting every manís dream

Sheíll hypnotize you

Right from her hair to her fingernails

In shadows and highlights

Sheíll make you bust at the seams

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

Inside my Piano

(Marc Jordan)

 

As tears go by

I hope your love runs free

my hungry heart beats for eternity

 

Because I never had a chance

to say goodbye to you

and hold you inside of my arms just one last time

 

I can't feel hear you tonight

Here inside my piano

I can't touch here tonight

The twist of the knife has not forgotten you

 

And the pain I feel comes and cuts right through

And I cried a little bit

When I wrote this song

Here with the keys and the cards and the memories

I can't feel hear you tonight

Here inside my piano

I can't touch here tonight

 

Oh

 

As tears go bye

I hope your love runs free

My hungry heart beats for eternity

 

Years are like generations

Lost upon the wind

Blowing like ashes to ashes away my friend

I can't feel hear you tonight

Here inside my piano

I can't touch here tonight

 

I can't see here tonight

Here inside my piano

I can't touch you here tonight

 

Oh

 

 

 

Moonlight Desires

(Lawrence Gowan)

 

Youíve got ways

To take hold of my thoughts

Overriding my senses

Lock your sights

Dead in line with my heart

Share your powers

You stir my soul

And meet my hunger

And weave the spell

That pulls me under

 

These moonlight desires

Haunt me

They want me, they want me

These moonlight desires

Haunt me

Youíre sending, youíre sending

 

Secret fires

Burn inside me unknown

Never mentioned

Only you

Can uncover the flames

Break their silence

And make them dance

For us to see them

And break their chains

And give them freedom

 

These moonlight desires

Haunt me

They want me, they want me

These moonlight desires

Haunt me

Youíre sending, youíre sending

A wave over my mind (over my mind)

And I fall to it blind

You say

Trust Me

 

You stir my soul

And meet my hunger

And weave that spell

That pulls me under

 

These moonlight desires

Haunt me

They want me, they want me

These moonlight desires

Haunt me

Youíre sending, youíre sending

A wave

 

 

 

 

Christine

(White)

 

Oh Christine

Your hand in mine

Itís so divine

Christine

Iím just a poor boy

Iím just a lonely boy

What would you do

Oh Christine

I love you.

 

 

 

All Over Again
(Hess)

Well, it was something that took me by surprise
Just when I tried to re-arrange my life
Well then I find out the things that I didn't really want to know
(No, it's not easy, you know it ain't easy)
Trying to get ahead in the world
All of a sudden it came over me and now I finally know

Even the hard times are good times
But I'd do it all over again
Even when I can't see what I've left behind me
I'd do it all over, do it all over again

Noticing now, there's some new things in my life
I try to turn them around, but it's too late to change my mind
(No, it's not easy, you know it ain't easy)
Trying to get ahead in the world
All of sudden it came over me and now I finally know

Chorus

Distant Memory
(Hess/Lesperance/Ribler)

As I walk into the dawn of another day
As I turn to face the light, shadows run away
After everything we've shared, how can we both turn and walk away

Through every single day, I want you to know, yeah I want you to know
That our love could be more than a distant memory
It's not enough to be only a distant memory

All these changes in my life, it's hard to handle it
Without a trace of where you've been, I can't get over it
I find it strange to say, time was on our side only yesterday
We've got to find a way, baby what went wrong, are we too far gone

Chorus

Living without you is getting the best of me
Days come and nights go, I don't want to live with the memory

Chorus

Don't be a distant memory
As I walk into the dark of another day...

 

 

Don't Give Your Heart Away
(Hess/Lesperance)

You and I had a dream to hold forever
Now it seems those days are gone
So if you think that we can pull our hearts together
Then please tell me before I go
You say you heard a voice in the night
And you swear it was your calling

Your words rang true over mine, I want you to know

Wherever you run to now, just remember don't give your heart away
Whoever you run to now, just remember don't give your heart away

Now I see, we have a need to be together
If you disagree, then I guess you're moving on
You say you heard a voice in the night
And you swear it was your calling
Your words rang true over mine, I want you to know

 

 

 

 

Love Reaction
(Hess/Lesperance/Coburn)

A physical attraction I could feel across the room
Inspiration, do I owe it all to you
Got no explanation why I feel the way I do
Ain't no need for complaining, cause I know that I've found heaven in you

I got a love, got a love reaction
You and me are fire meets ice
Got a love, got a love reaction
Burning in, burning in my heart

Did somebody sell you that smile upon your face
It's picture perfect, could it ever fall from grace
You got no hesitation for the way your body moves
Ain't no need for complaining, cause I know that I've found heaven in you

Chorus

I tried running away, but it always ends up leading me back

Chorus

 

 

 

Slowly Slipping Away
(Hess/Ribler)

There's a burning question in my heart

But I see the answer in your eyes
An uneasy feeling without you
There's only peace by your side

Our hearts survived the cold world outside
Somehow this love keeps us alive

I feel it in the morning
I feel it all through the day
I feel the heartache, slowly slipping away, slowly slipping away

We've had our share of confusion
We've been let down so many times before
But what I've found is a real love
No need to search anymore, no

Somehow we've weathered the storms in our lives
This love has never been a lie

Chorus

We will survive the cold world outside
Somehow this love keeps us alive

Chorus

 

 

 

 

 

Hard To Love
(Ward/Hess/Lesperance)

You come on like a sweet child here drive me wild when I want you
You giving me a rough time then you change your mind then you want me
You come so close, but you never stay
You take my heart, and then you walk away

You're hard to love, but it's hard to let you go
I need you now, but I'm afraid of letting you know
It's hard to love, and never understand
How it slips right through your hands

I wanna say you're mine but acting like you don't know me
All I need is one night just to make it right when you're lonely
I got to know if we can make it last

Can't pretend I don't want you to know
Every touch leaves your mark on me

Little things seem to haunt me now
I can't believe you've become a part of me

CHORUS

 

 

Honestly
(Hess)

I stand before you accused of many crimes
But I want to believe that love can still survive
You don't have to say it, I don't have to read your mind
To know that emptiness has finally arrived
How was I to know right from wrong
Words were hardly spoken, so where did I go wrong

Tell me honestly, if you're still loving me
Looking into my eyes honestly
Words have more meaning, if they're said at certain times
I need you now so I can feel alive
How would you know if you won't give me some time
To see if everything could work you'll be mine
I'll be lost forever or someday I may find
The words that I've been searching for or just some peace of mind

Chorus

All the nights I sit and wonder there must be more life
I'm sure that days and years go by while
I am living with, living with a lonely feeling
