1. If I'd Been The One
Lyrics

    If I'd Been The One
    (all copyrights registered)

    I've been lost inside, empty space in my heart
    And some things never change, oh
    How it hurts me and how it's tearin' me apart
    And it just goes on and on

    Can you read my mind
    Take a good look at my face
    Could you take the time
    Just to stand here in my place

    What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
    Could you smile when inside you just wanna cry, look inside
    Can you read my mind? Oh oh

    When I hear your name
    Feel so cold deep inside
    Still it's hard to explain, oh
    What your love meant to me
    They say time will heal the pain
    But it just goes on forever

    Can you read my mind
    Have you closed the door on love
    Can you be so blind
    Did you think I'd just give up

    Chorus:

    What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
    Could you smile when inside you just wanna cry, wanna cry
    What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
    Could you smile when it hurts so deep inside
    And it never fades away, Fade away

    Time can't erase the reasons why
    Count my mistakes and the heartaches
    Since you said goodbye

    (chorus)

    Never fades away, no it don't fade away
    ~D. Barnes, J. Carlisi, D. Van Zant, L. Steele

2. Back Where You Belong
Lyrics

    Back Where You Belong
    (all copyrights registered)

    I heard you're askin' how I'm feeling
    I guess I'll play it day by day
    I'm still around now, my heart is healing
    But some things never gonna change
    'Cause now I know love ain't easy to find
    I let you go, now I'm changing my mind

    Chorus:

    I know that love, it don't come easy
    It took so long, it's been hard to find
    So love, you must believe me
    Ain't gonna let it slip away
    I know I was wrong
    I want you back where you belong
    Want you back where you belong
    Back where you belong

    I played around now, I've done some dealin'
    I found that love should be with you
    And so you're gone now, my head is reelin'
    Don't wanna be with someone new
    And so I go, with a feeling inside me
    'Cause I know what I'm leaving behind

    (Chorus)

    I guess in time I stop and think it over
    Everything that we've been through
    This heart of mine may never find another
    Who loves me just the way you do
    Hey girl!

    I heard you're askin' how I'm feelin'
    I guess I'll play it day by day
    I'm still around now, my heart is healin'
    But some things never gonna change
    'Cause now I know love ain't easy to find
    I let you go, now I'm changing my mind

    (Chorus)

    Back where you belong, hey, hey
    I know that love, it don't come easy
    It took so long, it's been hard to find
    And so love, you must believe me
    Ain't gonna let it slip away, baby
    ~G. O'Connor

Lyrics

    One Time For Old Times
    (all copyrights registered)

    You're lookin' fine, it's been a long time
    I still remember everything that used to be
    Like the love, it's always so easy loving you for me
    It's been a while now time has got a smile
    I see you now love feels new to me
    Tell me have you still got a place in your heart
    Is there any chance you'll be showing me

    Chorus:

    One time for old times
    One kiss for the love we missed
    One time for old times
    And for all the love that we lost along the way

    It's still the same, nothing's really changed
    Still got the look that always got through to me
    I see you now, love feels new to me again, once again
    Tell me now, has anyone taken my place
    Is there any chance you'll come back to me

    One time for old times
    Honey, one kiss for the love we missed
    One time for old times
    And for all the love that we've lost along the way
    One time for old times
    Darlin', one kiss for the love we missed
    One time for old times
    And for all the love that we've lost along the way

    You're lookin' fine, it's been a long time
    I still remember everything that used to be
    Tell me have you still got a place in your heart
    Is there a chance you'll be showin' me

    One time for old times
    Darlin', one kiss for the love we missed
    One time for old times
    And for all the love that we've lost along the way
    One time for old times
    Honey, one kiss for the love we missed
    One time for old times
    And for all the love that we've lost along the way

4. See Me In Your Eyes
Lyrics

    See Me In Your Eyes
    (all copyrights registered)

    I've been walkin' all night, thinkin' of you
    The other lovers and all we've been through
    We're just too much alike
    But we're two worlds apart
    I've try to hide it but you've still got my heart
    And I can't dream without you
    Baby can't we give it just one more try

    Chorus:

    I wanna see me in your eyes tonight
    I wanna talk it over and hear you tell me it's alright
    Share reflections through the early morning light
    Girl, I wanna see me in your eyes tonight

    Well I saw you today with some other man
    It's tough pretending, it's all I can stand
    Pictures of you with somebody else
    It keeps me wonderin' when I'm by myself
    And I can't dream without you
    Baby can't we give it just one more try, oh

    Chorus

    It's not like it's the first time
    It might not be the last
    You told me once that it's all over
    Still I keep on running back

    It's not like it's the first time
    It might not be the last
    You told me once that it's all over
    Still I keep on running back

    I wanna see me in your eyes tonight
    I wanna talk it over and hear you tell me it's alright
    Share reflections through the early morning light, oh
    I wanna see me in your eyes tonight
    I wanna hold you closer and tell you everything's alright
    Share reflections through the early morning light
    Girl, I wanna see me in your eyes tonight
    In your eyes tonight, whoa
    ~D. Barnes, J. Carlisi, L. Steele

5. Twentieth Century Fox
Lyrics

    20th Century Fox
    (all copyrights registered)

    She claimed to travel in her own Lear jet
    When in fact she arrived in a powder blue Corvette
    She only stays in the plush hotels
    She loves her daddy's cash
    'Cause it spends so well
    Just watch the way she walks
    She's got a double barrel figure
    Watch her body talk
    Chorus:

    She's a twentieth century fox, oh watch her walk
    She's a twentieth century fox, talk that talk
    She got designer jeans, so tight 'n blue
    Break out in a sweat when she looks at you

    She loves lights, cameras and action
    To the boys on the set, she's the star attraction
    Just watch the way she walks
    She's got it all up front
    Just watch her body talk

    Chorus
    She got designer jeans, so tight 'n blue
    Break out in a sweat when she looks at you
    She loves lights, cameras and action
    To the boys on the set, she's the star attraction
    Just watch the way she walks
    She's got a double barrel figure
    Just watch her body talk

    Chorus

    She's a twentieth century fox, oh watch her walk, watch her walk
    She's a twentieth century fox, talk that talk
    (Walk that walk, talk that talk)
    Twentieth century fox, she's a twentieth century fox
    Twentieth century fox, twentieth century fox
    ~D. Barnes, J. Carlisi, D. Van Zant, L. Steele

6. Long Distance Affair
Lyrics

    Long Distance Affair
    (all copyrights registered)

    Long distance affair
    Can't you hear my heart keeps calling for you
    It's hard to show that I care
    It's hard to tell if you want me there
    I call your name there's no reply
    Don't you feel the same?
    Can't you hear my heart calling you?
    I got love on the line but I can't get through

    Sometimes love don't seem fair
    Guess I was wrong, thinkin' you would always be there
    I must be dreamin'
    I thought I had you feelin' the same
    I'm callin' your name

    Long distance affair
    With just a spark you stole my heart from me
    No one ever compared
    We'll never touch the memories
    I call your name there's no reply
    Don't you feel the same?
    Can't you hear my heart calling you?
    I got love on the line but I can't get through

    Whatever your friends may say
    What's it worth to you anyway
    You can listen to them and throw it away, yeah
    If you're thinkin' how it might have been
    Don't think of me like I'm one of them
    'Cause friends like that you got no one at all
    There's love on the line, baby answer the call
    'Cause you know that I love you, can't let go
    Baby can't you hear my heart

    I keep on calling your name, there's no reply
    Don't you feel the same?
    Can't you hear my heart calling you?
    I got love on the line but I ain't got you
    Can't you hear my heart calling you?
    I got love on the line but I can't get through to you
    Tell me it's true
    ~D. Barnes, D. Van Zant, L. Steele

7. I Oughta Let Go
Lyrics

    I Oughta Let Go
    (all copyrights registered)

    Chorus:

    I oughta be shot
    For thinkin' that you could love me
    I oughta be hung
    For keepin' up my hopes
    I got to be crazy
    For thinkin' that it could work out
    I oughta know better
    I oughta let go

    It's only Monday, and my heart's already broken
    I had a feeling it was gonna be different this time
    But you were just talkin', going through the motions
    Yuo had no intentions of backin' up your lines

    Chorus

    Day after day brings night after night without sleeping
    You keep me waitin' and you know what I'm waitin' for
    Some kind of affection that I can believe in
    You give me just a little, I want a little bit more

    Chorus

    Day after day brings night after night without sleeping
    You keep me waitin' and you know what I'm waitin' for
    Some kind of affection that I can believe in
    You give me just a little, I want a little bit more

    Chorus repeats 2x

    I oughta know better, I just oughta let go
    Man I've got to be crazy, some kind of fever
    ~Steve Diamond, T. Seals, E. Setser

8. One Of The Lonely Ones
Lyrics

    One Of The Lonely Ones
    (all copyrights registered)

    She once hoped to love again
    Hard to cope she remembers way back when
    A time in her life a man left her lonely
    She stops to wonder what it's all about
    She needs a lover but still has her doubts
    She's on the inside lookin' out

    Chorus:

    She's one of the lonely ones
    Broken heart but she don't let on
    She's still lookin' down, don't want to fall
    One of the lonely ones,
    Wastin' tears as the years roll on
    The time passes slow when you're lonely

    She stares where she saw him last
    Sees his face in a photograph
    It's all in her past, can't let it go
    It starts her thinkin' how it might've been
    They never thought it could ever end
    She's on the inside lookin' out

    Chorus

    And when she tries to sleep at night
    She reminisces when he held her tight
    He's no longer there, he's nowhere in sight
    There's certain words she should've said
    Now she's dreamin' alone in bed
    She's on the inside lookin' out

    She stops to wonder what it's all about
    She needs a lover but still has her doubts
    She's on the inside, inside lookin' out

    Chorus
    ~D. Barnes, D. Van Zant, L. Steele

9. Undercover Lover
Lyrics

    Undercover Lover
    (all copyrights registered)

    It took some time before you found me out
    Don't you remember when you had your doubts
    I fill your fantasy, I'm one and the same
    I'll start your fire, just give me a ring
    You paid for service babe, I'm always on hand
    To solve your problems satisfy your demands

    Chorus:

    I'm your undercover lover
    I'm a one night stand
    I'll take installments
    I'm a fair kind of man, yeah
    My clientel many
    Some I don't charge a penny
    I'm your undercover man, yes I am

    It must've started back when I was a boy
    I took to women like a child loves his toys
    I never dreamed of being paid for the fun
    But you're my witness that I'm second to none
    You might be thinkin' girl He's blind to your needs
    Each time you're with me, it's so easy to see

    Chorus

    You know it's not the last time lady
    Oh you'll be callin' again
    I'll show you just what you've been missin'
    Don't it feel good
    Ain't it nice to see me again
    Lord to see me again

    (Undercover) I'm a one night stand
    (Undercover lover) I ain't ever got your love in my hands
    (Lover undercover) Give you all you could stand
    Don't wish you'd try to run hard
    I'm your undercover lover, yeah
    ~J. Carlisi, D. Van Zant, L. Steele, D. Barnes
