Track Name: Can't Stop The Show
In a world,
in a day we had no plans or anyway,
with a flash you drift away to the unknown
you could find a new light you never thought you could unfold
it's in your eyes, the need to ride, you're gonna go

haven't been this far, well darlin don't you fear it's only a beginning
won't you take my hand, for i've got something planned

take a breath, close your eyes, let your mind go on a while ride
you're gonna find a place where colors shine more brightly
take a breath, close your eyes, let your mind fly in the brilliant skies
you're gonna find a new reality

won't you stay now that you've seen so much more than yesterday
don't look down or turn around, can't stop the show
now you've found hidden treasures buried more than surface deep
now you'll glow, i hate to say i told you so

haven't been this far, well darlin don't you fear it's only a beginning
won't you take my hand, for i've got something planned

take a breath, close your eyes, let your mind go on a while ride
you're gonna, a place where colors shine more brightly
glistening birds, they will sing and they'll whisper secrets in your ear
you're gonna understand and new reality
Track Name: He Loves and She Loves
he loves and she loves
they love so why can't you love and i love too
birds love and bees love, whispering trees love
that's what we both should do
i always knew some day you'd come along,
we'd have a twosome that just can't go wrong
he loves, she loves, they love so why can't you love and i love to

you love and i love, he loves and she loves
he loves and she loves, you don't love me
Track Name: Lie To Me
lie to me, tell me what i want to hear
lie to me, don't make any thought too clear
my hear it starts its pounding when you sweetly make it seem
that nothings ever gonna change and i'm the one you need

c'mon and lie to me
make it so i'll never know just how you lie to me
don't need anything but hope
i'll wait til after midnight when you walk right through my door
hold me in your arms, put on all your charm

i know it's temporary so baby speak no truths to me
when you go on walking, at least i'll have your talkins
your lips are full of fairy tales i only want them close to me
when you're gone they'll be ringing in my ear

oh lie to me, tell me what i wanna hear
lie to me, don't say anything my dear
well why would you remember all the words you used to say
when no you never loved me anyway

one by one they fall, all the little pieces
like a porcelain doll, sweetly she's blinded of just how she breaks apart
who will mend he up this time, oh this time
Track Name: How Deep Is Your Love
I know your eyes in the morning sun,
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I want to feel you in my arms again

and you come to me on a summer breeze
keep me warm in your love, then you softly leave
and it's me you need to show
how deep is your love,

how deep is your love, how deep is your love
I really mean to learn, cause we're living in a world of fools
breaking us down when they all should let us be
we belong to you and me

i believe in you
you know the door to my very soul
you're the light in my deepest, darkest hour
you're my savior when I fall

and you may not think I care for you
when you know down inside that I really do
and it's me you need to show

how deep is your love, how deep is your love
I really mean to learn, cause we're living in a world of fools
breaking us down when they all should let us be
we belong to you and me

how deep is your love how deep is your love
how deep how deep how deep
Track Name: Lullaby of the Leaves
cradle me where southern skies
can watch me with a million eyes
Sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves

cover me with heaven's blue
and let me dream a dream or two
sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves

i'm breezing along, along with the breeze
i'm hearing a song, a song through the trees
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
that fine melody caressing the shore
familiar to me, I've heard it before
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, that's Southland

don't I feel it in my soul
and don't I know I've reached my goal
sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves
Track Name: Rock Steady
i looked at you
you stole my heart
you were all that I anticipated
i wanted you, every part but I knew that love would be complicated

i began to touch, you wouldn't let it
it never seemed to be the right time
i started to give up, down to the limit
and then you changed your mind

and we begin to rock steady
steady rockin all night long
and we begin to rock steady
rockin till the break of dawn

you looked at me to my surprise
you were too anticipating
i should have known, it was in your eyes
that you were gettin tired of waitin
you wanted me so much, but I didn't get it
how could a fella be so blind
i started to give up, but love wouldn't let it
then you walked into my life

and we begin to rock steady
steady rockin all night long
and we begin to rock steady
rockin till the break of dawn
Track Name: Down With Love
down with love, flowers and rice and shoes
down with love, root of all midnight blues
down with things that give you that well known pain
take that moon, wrap it in cellophane

down with love let's liquidate all it's friends
like moon and june and roses and rainbow's ends
down with songs that moan about night and day,
down with love, take it away

take it away, take it away
give it back to the birds, bees the viennese,
down with eyes romantic and stupid
down with sighs, down with cupid
brother let's stuff that dove
down with love!
Track Name: Angel Eyes
try to think that love's not around
but it's uncomfortably near
my old heart ain't gaining no ground
because my angel eyes ain't here

angel eyes, that old devil sent
they glow unbearably bright
need I say that my love's misspent
misspent with angel eyes tonight

so drink up all you people
order anything you see
have fun you happy people
the laughs and the jokes are on me

pardon me but I got to run
the fact's uncommonly clear
got to find who's now number one
and why my angel eyes ain't here
Track Name: Never Let Me Go
never let me go
love me much too much
if you let me go
life will lose its touch
what would I be without you?
there's no place for me without you

never let me go
i'd be so lost if you went away
there'd be a thousand hours in a day without you i know

because of one caress my world was overturned
at the very start
all my bridges burned by my flaming heart
you'd never leave me would you?
you couldn't hurt me could you?
never let me go, never let me go
Track Name: Try To Get Out
Try to get out of this life
try but you never do you're stuck inside of this mess just like all the rest
everyday's the same you stand in your way
you say your man is insane but you stay anyway, your life is a waste

complaining, explaining your life that never does change
waiting, heart breaking though you're the one to blame

like a kitten chasing after it's own tail,
following no one won't get you anywhere
you are the problem and the answer, your'e the curse to your own cause
if you want to make a change, take your life and rearrange
