Let Your Love Go

length: 2:25
composer: David Gates
lyricist: David Gates

There's a reason for the life that you live
And there's pleasin' that I know you can give
And I been crayin' the love you been sayin'
So baby won't you give it to me

You're tellin' me no, no, no
You don't want to let your love go
I'm tellin' you yes, yes, yes
You really oughta be gettin' some happiness

I made a motion and it's out on the floor
And it's a notion that I'd love to explore
Cause I been tastin' the love you been wastin'
So baby won't you give it to me

You're a lady
And I'm here in the palm of your hand
Such a lady
How much more do you think I can stand?

Take Comfort

length: 3:34
writer: James Griffin, Robb Royer
Take comfort where you find it
whatever gets you through
Take comfort don't be blind to it
You must do what's a right for you

Every one at times must run for cover
Don't you know you really can't be blamed
For in this you're just like any other
There's no need, no need to feel ashamed

Take comfort where you see it
Whatever makes it right
Take comfort when you need it
To help you through the night

By the way we live in our confusion
And the way that we misspend our youth
By the time we're stripped of our illusions
We may find illusions are the truth

Too Much Love

length: 2:47
writer: Robb Royer, James Griffin
Too much sorrow
Too much pain
Too many reasons
No to go back again
Leavin' without her
Is too much to bear
But when we're together
Too much nothin' to share
But too much love
I've never seen
Too much love
I don't know what it means

Not enough caring
Too many lies
Sooner or later
One too many goodbyes
I got no reason
For hangin' around
And all my possessions
Start to weighin' me down
But too much love
I've never known
Too much love
I need some of my own

If

length: 2:36
composer: David Gates
lyricist: David Gates
If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know.
If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you,
You're all that's left me too.
And when my love for life is running dry,
You come and pour yourself on me.

If a man could be two places at one time,
I'd be with you.
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
I'd spend the end with you.
And when the world was through,
Then one by one the stars would all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly away

Be Kind to Me

length: 3:05
writer: Robb Royer, James Griffin
Be kind to me
Be kind to me
Be kind to me
Oh baby and I'll show you the way

Kindness is a virtue
Come on now babe
It won't hurt you to be
A victim of kindness
No more hesitations
We don't need no
Explanations this time
We'll leave them behind us

While you play the martyr
You know you just
make it harder for us
To love one another
So much indecision
That don't mean you
Got religion I think
You're gonna discover

Be kind to me

He's a Good Lad

composer: David Gates
lyricist: David Gates
He's a good lad
A little bit shy so you'll try and have to understand
Such a good lad
And just for a while the guy'll need a helping hand
His word are hard to follow, but his heart has found a way
To show you the things that he never could say;

He's a good lad
A little bit wild but his style is really gentle and kind
He ain't so bad
Right to the end he's a friend, about the best you can find
And as you come to know him, and his needs are comin' through
You'll flash on the day I was talkin' to you.

And he needs somebody to love
Yes he needs somebody to be worthy of -
He's a good lad

And if you come to want him, like I know he wants you to
You'll see all the things I was sayin' are true

And he needs somebody to love
Yes he needs somebody to be worthy of -
He's a good lad.

She Was My Lady

length: 2:52
writer: David Gates
She Was My Lady
(David Gates)

No one has heard
No one has seem her
Nobody else
Carin' but me
She was a child
She was a woman
When she was here
She was my lady

Never before
Was I dependin'
Then she came on
Filled in my life
She kept me on
My best behavior
She was my lord
She was my savior

She became my sanctuary
Some place I could lay me down
She would always help to carry
All the things that weigh me down

Nobody knew
How much I loved her
Not even her
Not even me
She was my queen
She was my lover
When she was here
There was no other

Live in Your Love

length: 2:47
writer: Robb Royer, James Griffin
Take away the moment
That began the lonely night
Take it away
And you'll be back in my life
'Cause I need you back in my life
Take me back to the time
When I could live in your light
If that's the only way to live in your love
Take me back
If that's the way for me to live in your love
Take me back

If I must cling to someone
Then you must be the someone
On my own, on my way
Lookin' back to the day
Back to the day when I could live in your love
Take me back
I got to find a way to live in your love
Take me back

What a Change

length: 3:40
writer: David Gates
It's my only dream
Dream it every night
It's about a girl who makes the waters still
Takes my troubled mind
And makes it all seem right...

Oh what a change, what a change that would be
I can feel it comin' over me,
Maybe it's strange, strange to say
But I can't remember how
How it used to be.

You could be the answer or another dream
Just another dream
How will I know
I'm afraid to wake up now and face the day
Comes the light of day
She'll have to go or stay...

Oh what a change, what a change that would be
Just to wake and find you still here,
'Cause every time, time before
When I open up my eyes
You always disappear.

We could sit and hope that you'll be seen
We could talk about the world and in between,
And when the morning light was through
Then I could see if it was really you.


I Say Again

length: 2:53
writer: James Griffin
You didn't hear me once again
So I'll have to say again

I knew you when
You didn't crawl behind your wall
Can you hear my voice at all
Must I have to say it again

I'm filling up the room with all the words I've said
Hoping that one or two will make it through
And get inside your head

I say again
You didn't hear me once again
So I'll have to say again



Come Again

length: 4:03
writer: David Gates
Hear, the knock at the door and you know who is there,
You tell yourself you don't care.
Try, you try to pretend you'll just send him away,
You know it won't end that way
Your heart doesn't stand a chance, your eyes let him know
And your pride doesn't means a thing, you lost it for him years ago;

Hear, the voice at the door and it makes you afraid,
Afraid but you don't know how.
Try, you try to remind him the promise he made,
He doesn't remember now
The tears welling up inside, are drowning your dreams
And your chance for another chance, keep leaving with him so it seems

Time, the friend that would bring him around,
Is turning on you and it's bringing you down.

Love, you tell him you love him and want him to change,
He says that he'll really try,
Hear, how often you hear as he's closing the door.
And softly you say goodbye
Come again
Come again

Truckin'

length: 2:31
writer: Robb Royer, James Griffin
Truckin' down the highway
Get outta my way
Always in a hurry
Always in between
That's where you can find me
Truckin' down the highway
Sittin' in the cab of
A ten ton machine
Gettin' pretty tired of stoppin'
In old run down cafes
Some day I'm gonna find me a woman
Rich enough to pay my way
Gonna make some inroads
Drivin' home a payload
Truckin' down the highway
Like you never seen
Gettin' pretty tired of lookin'
In truck stop cabarets
Some day I'm gonna find me a woman
Rich enough to pay my way
Then you're gonna find me
Truckin' down the highway
Sittin' in the back seat
Of a long limousine
