From AND THE MUSIC SPEAKS
Written by Maribeth Derry, Steve Diamond & Jennifer Kimball

Tony Borowiak, Jamie Jones, Delious Kennedy and Alfred Navarez comprise the hit vocal group All-4-One. Their self-titled debut cd was an out of the box success with platinum plus sales and a giant David Foster produced hit, “I Swear.” It won the 1994 Grammy Award for “Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal” and enjoyed an eleven-week run at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“And The Music Speaks” was their 1995 follow-up album. This go around the group decided to again collaborate with Foster for the debut single “I Can Love You Like That.” As with “I Swear,” this new collaboration was an ear candy cover of a John Michael Montgomery #1 country hit. The smart concept was another huge success for the group that scored big on the pop/adult contemporary singles charts and was also Grammy nominated for “Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal” and “Song Of The Year.” “I Can Love You Like That” has an elegant, pop arrangement that is perfect for mainstream radio with the four singers trading sweet, romantic lines under Foster’s expert guidance. “And The Music Speaks” was a good collection of love songs with some funkier moments all based on the group’s impeccable vocal harmonies. It was certified platinum and kept the momentum going for the group.

Foster and All-4-One reunited again in 1999 for a final collaboration on “I Will Be Right Here,” a ballad included on their album “On & On.”

Lyrics

they read you cinderella
you hoped it would come true
that one day your prince charming would come rescue you
you like romantic movies
and you never will forget
the way it felt when romeo kissed juliette
and all this time that you’ve been waiting
you don’t have to wait no more

i can love you like that
i would make you my world
move heaven and earth if you were my girl
i would give you my heart
be all that you need
show you you’re everything that’s precious to me
if you give me a chance, i can love you like that

i never make a promise
i don’t intend to keep
so when i say forever
forever’s what i mean
i’m no casanova
but i swear this much is true,
i’ll be holding nothing back
when it comes to you
you dream of love that’s everlasting
well baby open up your eyes…

i can love you like that
i would make you my world
move heaven and earth if you were my girl
i would give you my heart
be all that you need
show you you’re everything that’s precious to me
if you give me a chance, i can love you like that

if you want tenderness
i’ve got tenderness
and i see through to the heart of you
if you want a man
who will understand
you don’t have to look very far

i can love you, girl i can (i can love you love you)
oh baby oh…
i can love you like that
i would make you my world
move heaven and earth if you were my girl
i would give you my heart
be all that you need
show you you’re everything that’s precious to me
i can love you like that
i can make you my world
move heaven and earth if you were my girl
i would give you my heart
my heart my heart my world
show you you’re everything (you’re everything to me)
love you like that
i can make you my world
move heaven and earth if you were my girl
i would give you my heart
my heart my heart my world
show you you’re everything
