Track Name: Evie
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
Track Name: What The World Needs
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
Track Name: Never Give Up
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
Track Name: Trouble
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
Track Name: Looking For The Buddha
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
Track Name: Hopeless Romantic
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
Track Name: The Hunger
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
Track Name: Cara
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
Track Name: Singer/Shadows
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
