WASTED DAYS AND WASTED NIGHTS
Freddy Fender

(1st Verse)
Wasted days and wasted nights,
I have left for you Behind
for you don't belong to me,
your heart belongs to someone else.

(2nd Verse)
Why should I keep loving you,
when I know that you're Not true?
And why should I call your name,
when you're to blame
for making me Blue?

(chorus)
Don't you remember the day,
that you went away and left me?
I was so lonely,
prayed for you only

Release Me

length: 2:49
Please release me, let me go
For I don't love you anymore
To waste our lives would be a sin
Release me and let me love again

I have found a new love, dear
And I will always want her near
Her lips are warm while yours are cold
Release me, my darling, let me go

(Please release me, let me go)
For I don't love you anymore
(To waste my life would be a sin)
So release me and let me love again

Please release me, can't you see
You'd be a fool to cling to me
To live a lie would bring us pain
So release me and let me love again
(Let me love, let me love)

Welcome to My World

length: 3:21

Talk to Me

length: 3:08
Talk to me, talk to me
Darling, I love every thing you say
Talk to me, talk to me
In your own sweet gentle way

Let me hear, tell me dear
Tell me you, tell me you love me so
Talk to me, talk to me baby
Darling I, I want to know

The many ways you speak of love
I heard before
And it sounds so good every time
Please say the part, I love you once more
Whatever may crawl, you're mine

Talk to me, talk to me
Hold me tight, hold me close, whisper low
Talk to me, talk to me baby
Darling I, I love you so

The many ways you speak of love
I heard before
And it sounds so good every time
Please say the part, I love you once more
Whatever may crawl, you're mine

I Can't Stop Loving You

length: 3:04
I can't stop loving you
So I've made up my mind
To live in memory
Of such an old lonesome time

I can't stop wanting you
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday

Those happy happy hours
That we once knew
Though long ago
They still make me blue

They say that time
Heals a broken heart
But time stood still
Since we've been apart

I can't stop loving you
So I've made up my mind
To live in memory
Of such an old lonesome time

I can't stop wanting you
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday

Since I Met You Baby

length: 3:13
Since I met you baby my whole life has changed
Since I met you baby my whole life has changed
And everybody tells me that I am not the same

I don't need nobody to tell my troubles to
I don't need nobody to tell my troubles to
Cause since I met you baby all I need is you

Since I met you baby I'm a happy man
Since I met you baby I'm a happy man
I'm gonna try to please you in every way I can

It's All in the Game

length: 2:56
Many a tear has to fall
But It's All In The Game
All in the wonderful game
That we know as love
You have words with him
And your future's looking dim
But these things your hearts can rise above
Once in a while he won't call
But It's All In The Game
Soon he'll be there at your side

With a sweet refrain
And he'll kiss your lips
And caress your waking fingertips
And your hearts will fly away
And he'll kiss your lips
And caress your waking fingertips
And your hearts will fly away
And your hearts will fly away
And your hearts will fly…
And your hearts will fly…

Please Help Me I'm Falling

length: 2:30
Close the door to temptation don't let me walk through
Turn away from me darlin' I'm begging you to
Please help me I'm fallin' in love with you

I belong to another who's arms have grown cold
But I promised forever to have and to hole
I can never be free dear, but when I'm with you
I know that I'm losing the will to be true

Please help me I'm fallin' and that would be sin
Close the door to temptation don't let me walk in
For I musn't want you but darlin' I do
Please help me I'm fallin' in love with you

Secret Love

length: 3:47
Once I had secret love
That lived within this part of me
All too soon my secret love
Became impassioned to be free
So I told a friendly star
The way that dreamers often do
Just I wonder of your eyes
And why I'm so in love with you

Now shout this highest hill
Even told the golden best of you
And now my heart's an open door
And my secret love is no secret anymore
Ai amor mon me le quer morir
Que non miras lo que pasa en mi
Ven y da-me tu calor
Que mi corazon se muere sin tu amor
And my secret love is nno secret anymore

Tell It Like It Is

length: 3:02
If you want something to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
Baby my time is too expensive
And I'm not a little boy
If you are serious
Don't play with my heart
It makes me furious
But if you want me to love you
Then a baby I will, girl you know that I will
Tell it like it is

Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
But I know deep down inside me
I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride
Life is too short to have sorrow
You may be here today and gone tomorrow
You might as well get what you want
So go on and live, baby go on and live

Tell it like it is
I'm nothing to play with
Go and find yourself a toy

But I
Tell it like it is
My time is too expensive and I'm not your little boy

Pledging My Love

length: 2:54
Forever my darling our love will be true
Always and forever I’ll love only you

Just promise me darling
Your love in return
May this fire in my soul dear
Forever burn

My heart's at your command dear
To keep, love and to hold
Making you happy's my desire
Loving you is my goal

Forever I'll love you
For the rest of my days
I’ll never part from you
Or your loving ways

Just promise me darling
Your love in return
May this fire in my soul dear

Before The Next Teardrop Falls

length: 2:35
writer: Vivian Keith, Ben Peters
If he brings you happiness

Then I wish you all the best

It's your happiness that matters most of all

But if he ever breaks your heart

If the teardrops ever start

I'll be there before the next teardrop falls


Si te quire de verdad

Y te da felicidad

Te deseo lo mas bueno pa' los dos

Pero si te hare llorar

A mi me puedes hablar

Y estare contigo cuando triste estas


I'll be there anytime

You need me by your side

To drive away every teardrop that you cried


And if he ever leaves you blue

Just remember, I love you

And I'll be there before the next teardrop falls

And I'll be there before the next teardrop falls

Green Green Grass of Home

length: 3:07
The old hometown looks the same
as I step down from the train
And there to meet me is my mama and papa
Down the road I look and there runs Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
It's good to touch the green
green grass of home

Yes they'll all come to meet me
arms reaching smiling sweetly
It's good to touch the green
green grass of home.

The old house is still standing
though the paint is cracked and dry
And there's that old oak tree
that I used to play on
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
It's good to touch the green
green grass of home.

(spoke)Then I awake and look around me,
at four grey walls that surround me
And I realize, yes, that I was only dreaming.
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre
Arm in arm we'll walk at daybreak.
you once again I'll touch the green,
green grass of home.

Yes, they'll all come to see me
in the shade of that old oak tree
As they lay me neath the green,
green grass of home

You Lose a Good Thing

length: 2:52

Crying Time

length: 3:02
Oh, it's cryin' time again,
you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin' Oooh
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

Now they say that absence makes
the heart grow fonder (fonder)
And that tears are only rain to make love grow
Well my love for you could never be no stronger (stronger)
If I lived to be a hundred years old

( Spanish )

Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'. Yeah now
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

Now you say you've found someone
that you love better (better)
That's the way it's happened every time before
And as sure as the sun comes up tomorrow ('morrow)
Cryin' time will start when you walk out the door

Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me
I can see that far away look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'.
Alright now
That it won't be long before it's cryin' time
(That it won't be long before it's cryin' time)

She Thinks I Still Care

length: 2:55

Help Me Make It Through The Night

length: 3:07
Take the ribbon from your hair,
Shake it loose and let it fall,
Layin' soft upon my skin.
Like the shadows on the wall.

Come and lay down by my side
'till the early morning light
All I'm takin' is your time.
Help me make it through the night.

I don't care what's right or wrong,
I don't try to understand.
Let the devil take tomorrow.
Lord, tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight.
And it's sad to be alone.
Help me make it through the night.

I don't care what's right or wrong,
I don't try to understand.
Let the devil take tomorrow.
Lord, tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight.
Lord, it's bad to be alone.
Help me make it through the night.

I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

length: 3:03
Hear that lonesome whippoorwill?
He sounds too blue to fly.
The midnight train is whining low:
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

I've never seen a night so long,
When time goes crawling by.
The moon just went behind a cloud,
To hide its face and cry.

Did you ever see a Robin weep,
When leaves begin to die?
That means he's lost his will to live.
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

The silence of a falling star,
Lights up a purple sky.
And as I wonder where you are,
I'm so lonesome I could cry.
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

Vaya Con Dios

length: 2:51
Now the hacienda's dark, the town is sleeping;
Now the time has come to part, the time for weeping.
Vaya con Dios my darling,
May God be with you my love.

Wherever you may be, I'll be beside you,
Although you're many million dreams away.
Each night I'll say a pray'r, a pray'r to guide you
To hasten ev'ry lonely hour of ev'ry lonely day.

Now the dawn is breaking through a gray tomorrow,
But the memories we share are there to borrow.
Vaya con Dios, my darling:
May God be with you my love.

Now the village mission bells are softly ringing,
If you listen with your heart you'll hear them singing,
Vaya con Dios my darling,
May God be with you my love.

Wherever you may be I'll be beside you,
Although you're many million dreams away,
Each night I'll say a pray'r, a pray'r to guide you
To hasten ev'ry lonely hour of ev'ry lonely day.

Now the dawn is breaking through a gray tomorrow,
But the memories we share are there to borrow,
Vaya con Dios, my darling!
Vaya con Dios, my love.

Together Again

length: 3:35
Together again
My tears have stopped fallin'
The long lonely nights
Are now at an end

The key to my heart
You hold in your hand
And nothing else matters
We're together again

Together again
The gray skies are gone
You're back in my arms
Now where you belong

The love that we knew
Is living again
And nothing else matters, baby
We're together again

Well, nothing else matters, baby
We're together again

Make The World Go Away

length: 2:32
Make The World Go Away ...
And get it off my shoulders
Say the things you used to say ...
And Make The World Go Away

Do you remember when you loved me
Before the world took me a stray
If you do then for-[F] give me
And Make The World Go Away.

CHORUS

I'm sorry if I hurt you
I'll make it up - day by day
Just say you love me like you used to
And Make The World Go Away.

You Win Again

length: 2:38
The news is out all over town
That you've been seen out runnin' around
I know that I should leave but then
I just can't go you win again
This heart of mine
Could never see what everybody knew but me
Just trusting you was my great sin what can
I do you win again
I'm sorry for your victim now
Cause soon his head like mine will bow
He'll give his heart but all in vain
And someday say you win again
You have no heart you got no shame
You take true love and give the blame
I guess that I should not complain
I love you still you won again
I love you still you won again

Funny How Time Slips Away

length: 3:11

Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye

length: 3:40
composer: John D. Loudermilk
lyricist: John D. Loudermilk
Kiss me each morning for a million years
Hold me each evening by your side
Tell me you love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

Sweeten my coffee with a morning kiss
Soften my dreams with your sigh
After you've loved me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

If you must go I won't grieve
If you just wait a life-time before you leave
If you must go I won't say "no"
Just so we can say that we tried

Tell me you love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye
