Track Name: Rockin' Up The World
ROCKIN’ UP THE WORLD
She’s waiting for the superball to bounce up in the sky,
We’re looking for our heroes we like to see them cry,
We’re working on the werewithal to reason out our lives.
All the same the time slithers by.

I wanna know the raindrops are going from my heart,
I wanna know when the love affair will start.
I’m trying to see my way to drive across the sea
Baby come with me, come to me.
Time slithers by and it’s rockin’ up the world.
Time’s always been rockin’ up the world.

Can’t be more than we can be, can’t see more than we see.
Baby hold me tight.

Time slithers by and it’s Rockin’ up the world,
Times always been Rockin’ up the world.
Can’t be more than we can be, can’t see more than we can see,
Can’t see more than we can see.
Up the world.
Track Name: Stella and Joe
STELLA & JOE
I dreamed I reached and touched your golden hair
I would open up my eyes and you'd be there.

Standing on the corner we believed that if we fell
Then we would stay in love forever Stella, never growing old.
Still waiting at the station everyday since you once said
"My darling wait trust me forever" oh my Stella where did you go?
Love from Joe.

Those years ago we kissed and crossed the line
And swore to be together 'til the end of time.

But I've waited on the corner from the day that you once said
"Joe will you please trust me forever" Stella how was I to know?
You never would return to where I waited patiently
Since you once kissed me tenderly
My Stella where did our love go? Love from Joe.

I've waited in the station as the time slipped by around us
And the Spring changed into Summer Stella where was I to go
As you left me on that Summer day
Believing that our sweet eternal love
Would stay with us and last forever did you know?

I'd be waiting at the station everyday since then.
You told me that we'd always be together Stella.
Where did our love go? . . Love from Joe.
Track Name: Thin White Dove
THIN WHITE DOVE
I got my baby and she’s way outta sight
And she calls me Stacy in the middle of the night
So super lady make me feel so fine,
She told Mr. Jones she was mine, mine, mine

Yeah I, I’m gonna be your man. I, wanna be your man

And when my baby dances in the street
She’s got sixteen rivers she’s got flying feet
No I’m not talking ‘bout a thin white dove,
I’m making a claim for love.

Cos I, I’m gonna be your man. Yes I, I’mgonna be your man,

When my baby dances in the street she’s got a sunset smile
And when she’s looking good enough to eat she’s got a sunset smile
When my baby dances in the street she’s got a sunset smile
She’s got a sunset smile

I got my baby and she’s way outta sight
And she calls me Stacy in the middle of the night
No I’m not talking ‘bout a thin white dove
I’m making my claim for love

Ha na na I’m gonna be your man, Cos I wanna be your man,
Yes I, I wanna be your man, I wanna be your man,
Yes, I be your man, Yeah I, I’m gonna be your man,
I’m gonna be your man.
Track Name: A Thing For My Head
A THING FOR MY HEAD
We got a pill if we drink too much.
If we can't walk then we can use a crutch.
We can swim if we're gonna drown,
Somebody pull us up if we're comin on down.
So if ever one day we try breaking free
I can blame it on you and baby you can run to me.

You know what I just had a thought
It's really hard to think when your mind is taut.
And I can't seem to find a thing for my head,
I can't seem to find a thing for my head.
You know what, you know what this is wrong, what I've got.
You say if ever one day we try to sail to sea I can count on you
And baby you can flee to me.
You know what did you have a thought is it hard to feel when your heart is hot?
'Cos I can't seem to find a thing for my head
No I can't seem to find a thing for my head
And I’m out of my mind nothing for my head
I can't seem to find a thing for my head.
For my Head.
Track Name: If She Tells Me Today
IF SHE TELLS ME TODAY
He doesn’t really know you baby, cannot really show you at all.
It’s a never-ending story to get you in my dreams
in the words of other lovers I’ve cut to other scenes.
I wake up in the morning and slave into the night,
I couldn’t help but stay I couldn’t help but try.

I heard her talking to her lover and she talking to the crowd,
I was watching from the window and I heard her voice aloud
and the words they ran together and they really caused me pain
And I never will recover if she tells me today.

He doesn’t really know you baby cannot really show you at all.
There’s a never-ending circle and it spins your heart around
It takes you when you’re flying and it cuts you when you’re down.
I woke up in the morning and stormed into the night
She wanted to be faithful she wanted to be right.

And I watched her go to work and I watched her go to bed
And I loved the things she showed me and I loved the things she said
But the love we had together couldn’t fight against the fame
And I never will recover if she tells me today.
If she tells me today.
Track Name: The Taste Of Your Kiss
THE TASTE OF YOUR KISS
It’s not the shine of the rubies that I saw on your skin,
it’s not the glowing or the knowing that you come from within,
it’s not your flashing eyes that I’m gonna miss no no nothing like this.
It’s not the way that the clouds rush away from your crown
it’s not the swirling and the twirling of the dress that we found,
I don’t care for the colours of the pictures you dis.it aint nothing like this.
It’s the taste of your kiss.

It’s not the knowing that you’re mine or the forgetting you’re gone
it’s not the way that you mothered oh I fathered your son.
It’s not the playing in the park or the looking in schools
it’s the time of the year. It’s the time of the year,
it’s the taste of your kiss.

It’s not the shine of the rubies that I saw on your skin
it’s not the glowing or the knowing that you come from within,
it’s not your flashing eyes that I’m gonna miss
no no nothing like this.
It’s the taste of your kiss.
Track Name: Times Have Changed
TIMES HAVE CHANGED
Have you ever been weak have you ever been strong,
Have you ever been right have you ever done wrong?
Have you ever been blue well you know I have too
When I didn’t love you.

Whatever I do, whatever I say tomorrow or another day
I know that it’s true I’ll always be blue if not for you.

Was it love you left behind all those years ago,
Did you really change your mind, did you really wanna let go?
Wherever I go, wherever I stay I never let love get out of my way,
I know that it’s true I’ll always be blue if not for you.

Whatever I’d do I’d always be blue but times have changed.
Have you ever been blue well you know I have too
But times have changed.
Track Name: Don't Let Me Go
DON’T LET ME GO (Reveaux/Newell)
I can see you have stars in your eyes for a love that is new
And I can see you believe what you say when you say we are through.
What of me, am I yesterday’s dream that is over today?
I don’t know what will come of my life if you send me away.

Don’t let me go, I’ll lose my way without you by my side.
Don’t let me go, let me stay, let me stay oh my love let me stay.

I recall all the worlds that were ours from the day we met.
After all when you love like I love could you ever forget?
Maybe I should be stronger than this
I should leave you and then
spend my life longing just for your arms to embrace me again.

Don’t let me go, I’ll lose my way without you by my side.
Don’t let me go, let me stay, let me stay oh my love let me stay.
Don’t let me go, I’ll lose my heart without you by my side.
Don’t let me go, let me stay oh let me stay. Oh my love let me stay.
Oh oh my love let me stay. Let me stay.
Track Name: Blue For You
BLUE FOR YOU
Broken heart listening to the radio, pain in the chest everywhere she goes
And every time she tries to tell him goodbye,
He takes her in his arms and says “I’d rather die”
And then all her joy, all her pain coming up around now to hurt her again.
Into the night, on through the day,
She can’t forget the words that her lover would say

He’d say “Call me your baby I will call you my love
I’ll tell you all the things I’ve been dreaming of
And then hug me and kiss me Just like lovers oughtta do
Baby if you ever leave me I’ll be blue for you.”

Married in a church with the flowers in her hands
Looking up with hazy eyes to say “I do” to her man
When they’ve done this, it’s sealed with a kiss.
She can’t think of anything she’s gonna miss
‘Cos he made her an offer she couldn’t refuse
No more sorrow for a hatful of blues.
So when they get home, when they’re alone,
He just wanna to hear those words she sighs

She sighs “Call me your baby I will call you my love
Now tell me all the things you’ve been dreaming of
And I’ll hug you and kiss you just like lovers always do
Baby if you ever leave me I’ll be blue for you.”

When the time came for them to part
They didn’t feel good no they didn’t feel smart.
They didn’t feel as though they’d learned something new,
They couldn’t see what good trying again was gonna do

Just two broken hearts listen to the radio.
Pains in the chest everywhere they go
But next time they fall, next time they try,
There ‘aint gonna be any long goodbye

It’s just “So long now baby, yeah goodbye my love,
We had all the things we’d been dreaming of
And we held each other tightly, just like lovers always do
Baby the party’s over, I am blue for you.”
Track Name: What Have You Got To Lose
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?
What have you got to lose.
Maybe the heart and soul that made you sing the blues?
What have you got to lose?

'Cos you can fly far away to the land of yesterday.
And you can spread your angel wings, deep inside the heart that sings
Will hurt you so. But what have you got to lose?

What have you got to lose, maybe a song and dance a cradleful of fools?
But after all if you wanna go what will love ever know?
You could spread your tiny wings and deep inside the heart that sings.
Will hurt you so.
But what have you got to lose? What have you got to lose?
Track Name: So Hard To Stop Loving You
SO HARD TO STOP LOVING YOU
So many times, maybe lately twenty times.
If the gold has been fools you've seen us all through. Many times.

In the Summertime. Then will there come a time if the borders remain can we break through the rain in the Summertime?
When I saw you today I got carried away with my heart, it's so hard to stop loving you. It's so very hard to stop loving you.
Why can't we pretend you love me again,
tomorrow will soon bring another day.

Jill sing along and the friends you wanna bring along
Cos' soon like this song the time will be gone, so sing along.
I'll stay to the end 'til you love me again like the stars.

It's so hard to stop loving you, it's awful hard to stop loving you.
Though just to let go hurts me so tomorrow will soon bring another day.
Track Name: Lazy Blue
LAZY BLUE
Can I be your baby tonight? Ooh yea your baby tonight
It's a long way where I'm gone.
Can I play your lover's fool
If I come to your Mother's school at 6 o’clock tonight?

Don't run away without me like you do.
Don't kiss me once and leave me lazy blue.

With eyes that fire no dreams of yesterday.
The times for weariness we've put away,
I love you more than ever yes I do,
I will love you more for ever lazy blue.

I think my mind has gone missing
Since I let you take me in your arms and hold me tight.

Can I see you later tonight? It's sad when you’re gone.
And you’re gone.
So kiss me once and hold me like you do
I love you more than ever lazy blue.
We love you more than ever lazy blue.
