Listen to the song and read the words. Underline the words that have the same last sound. I Won't Last a Day Without You Performed by Shiina Ringo and Utada Hikaru Day after day I must face a world of strangers Where I don't belong I'm not that strong It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to Who will always care You're always there * When there's no getting over that rainbow When my smallest of dreams won't come true I can take all the madness the world has to give But I won't last a day without you So many times when the city seems to be Without a friendly face A lonely place It's nice know that you'll be there if I need you And you'll always smile It's all worthwhile * Touch me and I end up singing Troubles seems to up and disappear You touch me with the love you're bringing I can't really lose when you're near (when you're near) When you're near, my love If all my friends Have forgotten half their promises They're not unkind Just hard to find One look at you I know that I could learn to live Without the rest I found the best * (2x) I won't last a day without you

Listen to the song and read the words. Circle the words that have the same last sound. Close to you Performed by Utada Hikaru Why do birds suddenly appear Every time you are near Just like me They long to be Close to you Why do stars fall down from the sky Every time you walk by Just like me They long to be Close to you On the day that you were born The angels got together And decided to create a dream come true So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair and golden starlight in your eyes so true That is why all the girls in town Follow you all around Just like me They long to be Close to you Just like me They long to be Close to you
