I'm Into You 04:58
Close your eye And as the world fades away Listen to my voice and what it has to What it has to say I'm into you Out of this whole wide world I'm only into you I'm into you I'm looking out through love's eyes I'm only into you Like Leary said Just relax and float down stream Come to me you'll see it's not a dream This is not a dream I'm into you Out of this great big world I'm only into you I'm into you I'm looking out through love's eyes I'm only into you I feel your pain Your tears wash over me My heart would break If you're not listening Are you listening I'm into you I'm into you I hear that song "Just Walk Away Renee" I fall apart 'cause it's saying everything Everything I want to say I'm into you Out of this whole wide world I'm only into you I'm into you I'm looking out through love's eyes I'm only into you I'm into you I'm into you

She's suffered badly at the hands of love Abused repeatedly you call that love I call it tragic I call it lame The way we treat each other it's insane Will the world ever fall in love Will the world ever fall in love Will the world ever fall in love again We take advantage of the ones we love We lie cheat and steal and think that's love We think too much we think we're so smart What will it take to touch our hearts Will the world ever fall in love Will the world ever fall in love Will the world ever fall in love again Misfortune follows us around Blame somebody else for all that's coming down In the name of love we hate For the sake of love we rape It makes me sick it makes me weep It's no wonder that I can't sleep Will the world ever fall in love Will the world ever fall in love Will the world ever fall in love again

I thought I felt her walk by me I swear I heard her call my name But when I turn to try and find her She's not there She's not there I know I've always had this problem Since the first love in my life Though my heart tells me I still love her She's not there She's not there I know I treated her badly I could not wait to get away Confusion led me down this dark road And she's not there She's not there She was the only one She was the only one She is the only one I was wrong I was mistaken I can't begin to make amends I let her slip right though my fingers And she's not there She's not there Now I sit alone in darkness Waiting for someone like her And every time I think I've found her She's not there She's not there Is this emotional surrender To keep her vision burning bright I am a prisoner of shadows And she's not there She's not there She's not there

Waiting for Lorraine to come Sitting on this broken bench alone She said to meet her here And we could go grab a beer I'm waiting for Lorraine to come Waiting for Lorraine to come Waiting for the day when I won't be alone She said she'd be here by ten And I'm still sitting waiting I'm waiting for Lorraine to come Waiting for Lorraine I'm waiting for Lorraine Waiting for Lorraine I'm waiting for Lorraine to come Waiting for Lorraine to come Talking to these shadows as they dance around  I know it's getting late And she might not keep our date Still I'm waiting for Lorraine to come Waiting for Lorraine I'm waiting for Lorraine Waiting for Lorraine I'm waiting for Lorraine to come Waiting for Lorraine to come Looking past the street light for some sign of love Is that her standing there A halo in her hair I'm waiting for Lorraine to come  Waiting for Lorraine I'm waiting for Lorraine Waiting for Lorraine I'm waiting for Lorraine Waiting for Lorraine I'm waiting for Lorraine Waiting for Lorraine I'm waiting for Lorraine to come

Her favorite poem Was lost many years ago Misplaced or forgotten somehow We'll never really know Her favorite poem Though tragically flawed Her memory still clings To bits and pieces Old broken glass and worn-out string Though tragically flawed Pen to paper Every word finds a place to hide Every image disappears Vanished with the tide Pen to paper She might recite for you A verse maybe a few lines Never together though Never at the same time She might recite for you What stormy night is this Where she has come to rest What demons torment her soul She will not confess What stormy night it this The fires burn The flame says that he He is the only one The Adam to her Eve The fires burn Her favorite poem Was it really so long ago Young lovers danced beneath the moon Bodies aglow Her favorite poem Old faded photographs Found in a book of dreams Reveals nothing Except time is so extreme Old faded photographs Distorted rumors Facts that lead nowhere Faulty information Dissolves the truth that once was there Distorted rumors Is there no end To this madness caused by grief Illusion takes its bloody toll And gives back no relief Is there no end No safe harbor No rewrite within sight Her naked longing screams Through this cold and desperate night No safe harbor The final word One last bitter root to share Is there no hope for someone Swimming in despair The final word The final word

Last night as I walked home After coffee at the Weatherstone I'll use any excuse to be alone I turned a corner you were standing there With this new color in your hair All I could do was stand and stare I've got everything I need I've got everything I want I've got everything I need but you You kind of smiled then walked away I tried to move but there I stayed I think maybe I might have lost my way Now being lost it's no big deal It's like an orange waiting to be peeled But being lost in love is so surreal I've got everything I need I've got everything I want I've got everything I need but you Your love is breaking This heart of stone Your love is melting The ice in my bones And now I see you everywhere I go The open mic. or at Audrey's show We never talk we just let the river flow I've heard that love from a distance works Whoever said it must have been a jerk 'cause out of sight out of mind is gonna hurt I've got everything I need I've got everything I want I've got everything I need but you I've got everything I need I've got everything I want I've got everything I need but you

Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl An emotional tide Has swept over me A fire a flame That's burning though me It keeps lifting me up It keeps throwing me down Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl There's nobody home In my part of town Only a ghost And she's not around She keeps standing me up She keeps knocking me down Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl I will always be The darkest shade of blue I will always see The other side of you Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl An ocean of love Is what I fear Afraid that I'll drown In a sea of tears But I stand up I turn around I scream and shout Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl Hey hey hey hey Be my tambourine girl

Spanish Rose 04:47
This rose of love This rose from Spain This flood of tears For a heart in pain I'll never know This dark rose of love This captive dove These angel wings The song of sorrow This gypsy sings I'll never know This dark dove of love This moon of tears This moon of love This moon of death Called down from above I'll never know This dark moon of love My vision blurs With love's alarms He comes to me Though others' arms I'll never know This dark man of love This nocturne of death In which we sleep This dance of lost souls Which makes dreams weep I'll never know This dark song of love This Spanish heart These Spanish eyes This dagger of truth That cuts through our lies I'll never know This dark heart of love This blade of romance Sunk deep in my breast These rhythms of pain I feel so blessed But I'll never know This dark blade of love These pools of blood The rivers run A night so cold His poem is done I'll never know This dark soul of love

Alone Again 03:49
Here I go again Breaking all the rules I swore I'd never do that again Everything was fine Then one walk in the rain Here come the tears and the pain  I don't understand Why am I the one Always left alone in the end All alone in the end All alone in the end Thought I was all right I see I was wrong I've been lying to myself all along Turn another page Read between the lines Try to find this heartache of mine True love take a bow Night begins to fall And I'm left all alone in the end All alone in the end All alone in the end There's nothing for me here I'm all alone with these desperate tears You could say that I Am living with a loss I won't let go and can't see the cost Lavender and blue There's no escape From this shadowy solitude Angels weep for me Love is made of sand And I'm left all alone in the end All alone in the end All alone in the end

She's not in love She tells you not to waste your time On her She needs to be Free as a bird or something And you know what she means So you tag along You tell her you've got a hold of your heart But you don't It's running scared It's running straight for those arms But she's not there She doesn't want to be In love She doesn't want to be In love She's not in love Just the thought of it makes her squirm Inside She wants to be On her own simple and free Can't you see She doesn't want to be In love She doesn't want to be In love Let her go Let her go She doesn't want to be In love She doesn't want to be In love She's not in love You tell her that it's all right you're strong But you're not You fall apart As you try and let go of your love For her Let her go Let her go She doesn't want to be In love She doesn't want to be In love She's not in love She's not in love She's not in love She's not in love

Ruebi 04:12
Where is my Ruebi My little Ruebi If you see her tell her She's the only girl for me Where has my Ruebi gone All that's left is this tattoo on my arm This world's a lonely place Without the smile on my Ruebi's face I stand on ancient ground I scream her name the storm clouds gather 'round Where is my Ruebi My little Ruebi If you see her tell her She's the only girl for me My Ruebi My Ruebi Where can my Ruebi be I can't escape these chains of misery The light of my life's gone And darkness binds my to this underground Is there one secret spell One word to free me from this living hell Where is my Ruebi My little Ruebi If you see her tell her She's the only girl for me My Ruebi My Ruebi I want my Ruebi My little Ruebi I want my Ruebi Where is my Ruebi My little Ruebi If you see her tell her She's the only girl for me Where did my Ruebi go It's been so long why can't I let her go The rain keeps beating down My eyes have dried but my heart has drowned I want my Ruebi back If you see her tell her I'm still wearing black Where is my Ruebi My little Ruebi If you see her tell her She's the only girl for me My Ruebi My Ruebi If you see her tell her If you see her tell her If you see her tell her That she's the only girl for me My Ruebi My Ruebi My Ruebi

a) Silent Heart A silent heart Beats soft and clear Hides in the shadows Veiled in tears A silent heart Reaches out for love In loneliness She finds a dark dove Fly away little bird If dreams are all that's left you Fly away A silent heart Lives in pain A silent heart Slowly fades away b) What Is Love What is love I want to know Is it magic or a myth Could there be something Something that I've missed What is love I need to know Is it real or just a dream Or you telling me that love Is not what it seems Why can't it be Just a little more fair I thought that love was the one thing That we all share What is love I want to know What is love I need to know What is love c) A World Of My Own No need to wake me You don't have to shake me I'm in a world of my own With no relations No expectations I'm better off on my own That's what she told me I just said hold me But I guess I said it wrong She said I'm living in a world of my own And I'm not sure if it's right or it's wrong But I've been living off of stardust so long Now it's loneliness that's driving me on She said I'm living in a world of my own And I'm not sure if it's right or it's wrong But I've been living off of stardust so long Now it's loneliness that's driving me on d) I Don't Want To Fall In love Don't say that you love me Don't tell me you'll always be there Don't say that love is forever Don't whisper softly in my ear No I don't want to hear it I don't want to hear it I don't wanna fall in love No I don't wanna fall in love I don't wanna fall in love

How many times can I tell you What could I possibly write What could I ever say to you You haven't already heard twice Know you tell me that it sounds like yesterday's news And you've heard all of that before Well I gotta admit you're probably right So what am I doing it for What am I gonna do What am I gonna do What am I gonna do about you What am I gonna do I can read about it in the papers I can even see it on T.V. But I never thought it would go like this I never thought it'd happen to me Well you tell me that you've heard this all before You don't really want to get involved I guess you're right I really know the score So what am I doing it for What am I gonna do What am I gonna do What am I gonna do about you What am I gonna do You know it's all over baby When love calls your name You know it's all over darling When you start screaming in vain What am I gonna do What am I gonna do What am I gonna do about you What am I gonna do I saw you last week at a concert You were standing on a chair in the back I know I shouldn't get so excited But I'm a sucker for a girl in black Now you tell me that it's time to open my eyes And come down from the clouds I guess you're right this will never work So what am I doing it for

Confusion 05:08
Ask a man ask a woman Are we the same or are we different Do our passions divide us Down a pathway perilous The answer's always the same Confusion reigns Love deifies love falters Love fails to conquer And in a whirlwind of anger Still the heart stops to ponder The question's always the same Confusion reigns And I know it's true Since I've met you We say we all want the same thing Love and the happiness it brings But if it's love that divides us Then it's our pain that unites us The question's always the same Confusion reigns Obsessions flame passions linger Bitterness points its finger And past the hallways of deceit Is where we finally meet The answer's always the same Confusion reigns And I know it's true Since I've met you Ask a woman or a man If there is some divine plan Has someone poisoned the well Through these tears I can't tell Love will fly Love will crawl Love will make fools of us all
