Until You Were Gone

length: 3:04
producer: Bob Johnston
conductor: Robert Mersey
arranger: Robert Mersey
writer: Joy Byers

I said I didn’t need you baby
I said I’d get along
I thought I can make it without you baby
But I guess I’m not that strong
And I didn’t know I could miss you so
Until you were gone

I said I’d get over you baby
I said I’d be alright
Just, just when I start remembering
That all the hurt comes back in the night
And I didn’t know I could miss you so
Until you were gone

I tried to stay away cause I knew I couldn’t win
But here I am, and I’m back again
I tried to find someone else to take your place
But everytime I close my eyes I can see in, see in your face

Oh, oh, oh, I said I’d forget you
Cause I really thought, I really thought that I could
Oh, oh, I thought I could stop of loving you
I tried it, but it didn’t do no good
And I didn’t know I could miss you so
Until you were gone

I said I’d get over you baby
I said I’d be alright
But, oh, oh, just when I start remembering
It comes back in the night
Oh, oh, oh, oh, I thought I could
Oh baby

Sweet Bitter Love

conductor: Belford Hendricks
arranger: Belford Hendricks
composer: Van McCoy
lyricist: Van McCoy
I talked to you today, we've loved each other
For so long in that special way
And if circumstances should keep us apart
I just want you to know
That you will remain forever here in my heart

Sweet, sweet bitter love
The taste still lingers, though through my helpless fingers
You slipped away, ooh, yes you did

Sweet, sweet bitter love, what joy you taught me
What pain you didn't mean to but you brought me
And so shall, baby and so shall it stay

My magic dreams have lost their spell
And where there, where there was hope
Oh, there is an empty shell

Oh, sweet, my my my, my my my, my my, bitter love
Why have you awakened and then you've forsaken
A trusting heart like mine

My magic, my magic dreams
They've all, they've all, all lost their spells
And where there, where there was a little bit of hope
Yes sir, there is, oh look at me now, there is an empty shell

Oh, sweet, my my my, my my my, my my, bitter love
Why have you awakened and then
And then and then and then and then you know, you have forsaken
A trusting heart, yeah like mine, a trusting heart like mine
I love you boy, yes I do, like mine

A Mother's Love

length: 2:34
producer: Clyde Otis
conductor: Belford Hendricks
arranger: Belford Hendricks
writer: Cliff Owens
I have seen a rainbow
Circle across the sky
And I have stood on a mountain
And watched an eagle fly

I have seen trees in a meadow
Shelter a morning dove
But I haven't seen anything
To match the wonder of a mother's love

I have seen a sunset
More beautiful than gold
And I have stood by a rosebed
And watched the leaves unfold

I have seen so many wonders
And blessings from above
But I haven't seen anything
To match the wonder of a mother's love
No, I still haven't seen anything
To match the wonder of a mother's love

Swanee

Swanee
How I love ya, how I love ya
My dear old Swanee
I’d give the world to be
Among my folks in
D-I-X-I-E-ven now my (Swanee)
People are
Waitin’ for me, prayin’ for me
Down by the Swanee
The folks up north (north)
Will see me no more
When I get to that Swanee shore

Oh, Swanee
How I love ya, how I love ya
My dear old Swanee
I’d give the world if I could only be
Among my folks in
D-I-X-I-E-ven now my (Swanee)
People are
Waitin’ for me, prayin’ for me
Down by the Swanee
The folks up north (north)
Will never (will)
Just see me no more
When I get to that Swanee (Swanee)
Well, let me get through that Swanee (Swanee)
When I cross that Swanee shore

I'm Losing You

length: 3:09
producer: Bob Johnston
conductor: Robert Mersey
arranger: Robert Mersey
writer: Joy Byers

I heard those rumours
You'll soon be gone
They say there's no use
In holding on
But I love you so
I will die
If I let you go
Say it's not true
No no no no I'm losing you (I'm losing you)
They say you're cheating
They tell me you lie
But later all change
The way I feel inside
And if it's so
Then don't tell me
Cause I don't wanna know
Say it's not true
No no no no I'm losing you (I'm losing you)
If I lost you
What would I do?
And after all, all we've been through
Com'on, com'on
Maybe she is only
Passion faith
Well if she is
You go and help yourself of lay
Cause when you're through
I'll be here
Waiting, waiting just for you
Say it's not true
No no no no I'm losing you

Take a Look

length: 2:42
producer: Clyde Otis
arranger: Belford Hendricks
conductor: Belford Hendricks
composer: Clyde Otis
lyricist: Clyde Otis
Take a look in the mirror
Look at yourself
But don't you look too close
'Cause you just might see
The person that you hate the most

Lord, what's happening
To this human race
I can't even see
One friendly face

Brothers fight brothers
And sisters wink their eyes
While silver tongues
Bear fruits of poison lies

Just take a look at your
Children, born innocent
Every boy and every girl
Denying themselves a real
Chance to build a better world

Dear Lord, dear Lord
What's happening to
Your precious dream
It's washing away on a
Bloody, bloody stream

Take a look at your children
Before it's too late
And tell them nobody wins
When the prize is hate

Can't You Just See Me

length: 2:02
producer: Clyde Otis
writer: Belford Hendricks
Can't you just see me
With my head in the air
The day you trip and fall
Right out of my hair
I'm gonna walk right by you
Like you were stone
Everything that I felt for you, baby
Will be dead and gone
Hey, can't you just see me
(Can't you just see her)
Can't you just see me, girl
(Can't you just see her)
Can't you just see me now
(Can't you just see her)
With my head in the air
(With her head in the air)
Hey, can't you just see me
With another man
Just a-hugging and a-kissing
And him holding my hand

Cry Like a Baby

lyricist: Jo Armstead, Valerie Simpson, Nickolas Ashford
composer: Nickolas Ashford, Valerie Simpson, Jo Armstead
Nobody knows except my pillow at night
All through the day how many tears I have to fight
Oh when I'm all alone yeah
I just cry like a baby
I cry like a baby
Oh I cry
I cry
Oh yeah

Nobody sees except my mirror on the wall
I'm not the fairest I'm the bluest of them all
And, Oh
When I'm all alone yeah
I just cry like a baby
I cry like a baby
I cry
I cry
Oh yeah

Each day I say tomorrow will be my lucky day
Ah ha yeah
And my pillow will be surprised when I come home with a glad eye
And the mirror on the wall will see that I am happy one more (?)

No more nights staring at daddy's chair
Because I know that you will be standing there
Oh oh, when I'm alone I won't

Cry like a baby
Cry like a baby

Oh yeah
Said I won't cry
I won't cry like a baby
Wooo hooo no
Oh ho yeah
I said that I ha
