Evie 03:00
Evie Do you remember the first time We met You were Singing and playing the piano But I know That you won't Remember it the way that I do Because from the very start I had fallen for you Evie I think We should be together Evie I may be crazier than ever Evie But I think We belong together Evie Let's make it last forever and ever Evie I know I live in a daydream A fantasy But your eyes Seem to be singing the same song To me Evie Magic Love must be up to her old tricks The moment I saw you I knew it Evie I think That we should be together Evie I may be crazier than ever Evie But I think We belong together Evie Let's make it last forever and ever

Oh man this is just what the world needs Another protest song I'm sorry but I can't help thinking that Nearly next to nothing has been done I thought the black man was freed I thought a woman could be what she wants to be But I guess I was wrong Man you might as well drop that bomb Tell me what the world needs Tell me what the world needs Tell me what the world needs I've heard the stories They say it's getting better and it won't be long Gee it's only been a few thousand years I guess we're moving right along But the children still scream And their father just watches them bleed I thought killing was wrong I guess you might as well drop that bomb Tell me what the world needs Tell me what the world needs Tell me what the world needs Is it to much to ask Is it so hard to grasp With the light of the day We watch the shadows of night slip away I guess we haven't really learned a thing The writing still on the subway walls Somebody said that it's been washed clean But I think we turned our head that's all Here's how it stands of late Somebody wants to build a corporate state With one world one God Somebody better drop that bomb And tell me what the world needs Tell me what the world needs Tell me what the world needs

You can say what you want But I don't think I'm gonna change my mind No I don't feel bad Because I knew from the start this would take some time Because your what I need And darling someday you'll see That I'm never gonna give up this love for you No I'm never gonna give up my love for you You can take what you like And don't feel that you've got to owe me Your the love of my life And you can't buy that not at any price So when love's what you need Darling you can run to me No I'm never gonna give up this love for you No I'm never gonna give up my love for you I'll keep holding on I'll keep holding on I'll keep holding on And on and on and on and on So when love's what you need Darling you can run to me No I'm never gonna give up this love for you No I'm never gonna give up my love for you

Trouble 03:08
I think I'm in trouble again I usually try to stop it before it begins I only hesitated for a moment or two Now I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble again I thought that my defenses were well laid in But then you dropped a bomb with that smile of yours I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble Trouble again I think I'm in trouble again I think I'm falling he over heals but then I might be sick and I should be in be I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble Trouble again You know I can't seem to get you out of my mind I can't sleep nights your there all the time And I'm not sure but I don't think that I'm blind So that must mean that it's some kind of sign That I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble Yes I think I'm in trouble Trouble again I think I'm in trouble again You know I tried to fight it but I just can't win I thought I could escape the fire of love somehow But I think I'm in trouble Yes I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble Trouble again I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble I think I'm in trouble Trouble again

I'm looking for that someone in my life But I don't think she's anywhere around I know that I've seen her in my dreams But I don't know how she can be found So I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah And maybe he'll tell me Where can you be They say love sees so much it can not see Oh man that's just what I need to hear Because I'm looking for someone to take me home Just the thought of it brings me to tears So I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah And maybe he'll tell me Where can you be Where oh where can you be Where oh where Oh where can you be I'm looking for the Buddha uh huh I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah Somehow the sun sets on you It's something that I've know about for years But here I am howling at the moon Waiting for love to appear So I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah And maybe he'll tell me Where can you be I'm looking for the Buddha uh huh I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah I'm looking for the Buddha uh huh I'm looking for the Buddha oh yeah

He is a hopeless romantic He still falls in love at first sight He doesn't know anything about her But I guess that's the way love goes tonight She's the life of the party now He's lost his heart And it will never be found Hopeless romantics Why won,t they ever see Hopeless romantics Always in love with a dream She is a hopeless romantic Everybody tells her so She's in love with this new guy And he doesn't even know she's alive tonight He's everything she's wanted now She's lost her heart And it will never be found Hopeless romantics Why can't they ever see Hopeless romantics Always in love with a dream Hopeless romantics Hopeless romantics There she was Standing right behind me in line I just turned around I looked into her eyes and I found I was a hopeless romantic Why can't I ever see I am a hopeless romantic Always in love with a dream Hopeless romantics Hopeless romantics

The Hunger 03:26
Every night the hunger grows I'm waiting for you to call Just give me some kind of sign Any old thing at all I want to see the light in your eyes I want to see the smile on your face I can't remember yesterday Reality just comes and goes Everything turns to gray Your all that I really know I only want to see you again I only want to hold you but then But every night the hunger grows It keeps eating me up Devouring my very soul Every night the hunger grows Until I have nothing left Except a hunger that grows I know that it's wrong I know that it's been to long But it won't let go This hunger just grows and grows And every night the hunger grows It keeps eating me up Devouring my very soul Every night the hunger grows Until I have nothing left Except a hunger that grow All I want to see is your face All I want to hear is your voice Now I sit along in this room A prisoner of the past Haunted by visions of you I confess to the shadows at last I only want to see you again I only want to touch you but then Every night the hunger grows It keeps eating me up Devouring my very soul Every night the hunger grows Until I have nothing left Except a hunger that Every night the hunger grows It keeps eating me up Devouring my very soul Every night the hunger grows Until I have nothing left Except a hunger that grows

Cara 02:48
It's like a Saturday night With nowhere to go Your all dressed up for the dance But your date hasn't shown I got a feeling in my bones It's getting late and I just gotta know Cara do you love me Cara do you love me Cara Cara Do you love me Why is the tree of life So hard to unfold Why can't the magic be counted And everyone told Won't you end this mystery Can't you see that it's It's killing me Oh Cara do you love me Cara do you love me Cara Cara Do you love me Through the darkness Through the light Past the veil don't I need you in my life Hand in hand card to card I feel like screaming in your front yard Oh Cara do you love me Cara do you love me Cara Cara Do you love me Oh Cara do you love me Cara do you love me Cara Cara Do you love me Oh Cara do you love me Cara do you love me Cara Cara Do you love me

I am a singer I am not a writer I can sing a song for you I am a lover I am not a fighter And we both know what love can do I am a singer Signing for pleasure The pleasure of pleasing you If I could reach you With words of love You know I would if I could you know I would But I'm just a singer I am not a writer So I will sing a song for you
