I was talking to my girlfriend just the other day
I was not a bit surprised at what she had to say
On the subject of love we both were disillusioned
All day long we tried to find some kind of a solution

She said, "I'm tired of all that cheatin' and lyin'
Men won't change so I'm just gonna give up tryin'"
I said, "I feel the same way, too, but I
Can't give up so I don't know what to do"

I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can you do about 'em?
I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
I say we got a problem (oh, whoa)

Said, I know
I said we oughta tell them about their evil ways
I know they'll get defensive then turn around and say
"We're not alone out here 'cause women do it, too"
I said, "two wrongs don't make it right, they pay the price like you do"

She said, "uh-huh, I'm tired of all this cheatin' and lyin'
Men won't change so I'm just gonna give up tryin'"
I said, "I feel the same way, too, but I
Can't give up so I don't know what to do"

I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can you do about 'em?
I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
I know we got a problem

I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can you do about 'em?
I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
I know we got a problem

I hope that there's a man somewhere who knows that love's a treasure
But the only ones I've met so far has used this love for pleasure
They don't make commitments, they say "come deal with me"
But I don't want to buy his love with my prerogative

I really want to love you
But I can't accept the way you do the things you do, men
Can't live, can't live, can't live without 'em
Oh men, can't live, oh live
Oh, I know we got a problem I'll tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can you do about 'em
I'll tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can we do about 'em?
(Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa)
(Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa)
(Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa) I just don't know what to do about 'em
Men, can't live with 'em
But you can't live without 'em
No, what can we do about 'em?
I tell you, men

Meet Me in the Middle

length: 4:43
Both of us were silent
With so much left to say
I almost said I love you
And please don't go away

But every time there's trouble
I go that extra mile
Now if we're gonna make it baby
You've gotta change your style

Why don't you tell me
If you love me
Show me how you feel
Together we can work it out
If this love is real

You've got to meet me in the middle
Meet me halfway
The world today is compromise
C'mon, c'mon, what you say?

Just give a minute
If you got a change of heart
Don't use me, let me go
Don't take my love for granted
If you want me let it show

'Cause I would give up everything
To prove my love for you
But should I have to pay that price
If you love me too

Why don't you meet me in the middle
Meet me halfway
Show me some compassion
C'mon, c'mon, what do you say?

Oh, meet me in the middle
Meet me halfway
The word today is compromise
C'mon, 'c'mon, what do you say?

Meet me in the middle baby
See you when I get there
Meet me in the middle baby
Yeah, yeah

Meet me in the middle baby
See you when I get there
Meet me in the middle baby
Yeah, yeah

Take it and give it
That'll be willing
Open up your heart and your mind

Whenever there a problem
I know that we can solve them
If we go put our love on the line

Hey, why don't you meet me in the middle
Oh, halfway
In the middle
Baby, what do you say?

Why don't you meet me in the middle
Meet me halfway
The word today is compromise
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon what you say?

Meet me in the middle
Meet me halfway

Show me, show me some confession
In the middle baby
Oh, in the middle

Early in the morning
I put breakfast at your table
And I make sure that your coffee
Has its sugar and cream

Ooh, your eggs are over easy
Your toast done lightly
All that"s missing is your morning kiss
That used to greet me

Now, now you say the juice is sour
Well, it used to be so sweet (Well)
And I can"t help but to wonder
If you"re talking about me (Oh, you"re talkin")

We don"t talk the way we used to
And it"s hurting me so deep
I got my pride, I will not cry
But it"s making me weak

I"m not your superwoman
I"m not the kind of girl that you can lay down
And think that everything"s okay
Boy, I am only human (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
This girl needs more than occasional
Hugs as a token of love from you to me (Ooh, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby)

I find a way through the rush hour
Trying to make it home just for you
I want to make sure that your dinner
Will be waiting for you

But when you get there you just tell me
You"re not hungry at all
You said you"d rather read the paper
And you don"t want to talk

You"d like to think I"m just crazy [Crazy, crazy]
When I say that you"ve changed
Well, I think I know the problem
You don"t love me the same

You"re just going through the motions
And you"re not being fair
I got my pride, I will not cry
But I can"t help but care

I"m not your superwoman (Oh, no, no, no) [Oh, no, no]
I"m not the kind of girl that you can lay down
And think that everything"s okay
Boy, I am only human (I"m only human)
This girl needs more than occasional
Hugs as a token of love from you to me

Oh, baby, look into the corners of your mind {Into the corners of my mind}
I"ll always be there for you through good and bad times
But I can"t be that superwoman that you want me to be
I"ll give my love {Love}, everlasting love {Hey} if you return love to me

I"m not your superwoman (Oh, no, no, no) [Oh, no, no]
I"m not the kind of girl that you can lay down
And think that everything"s okay
Boy, I am only human (I"m only human)
This girl needs more than occasional
Hugs as a token of love from you to me

Of, if you feel it in your heart
And you understand me
Stop right where you are
Everybody sing along with me

Ooh, hoo, hoo, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Oh, ho, ho...)

I"m the kind of girl that can treat you so sweet
But you"ve got to realize that you"ve got to be sweeter to me, yeah
I need love
I need just your love

I don"t want to be super, super, superwoman (Oh, no)
I"m not the kind of girl that you can lay down
And think that everything"s okay
Boy, I am only human (I"m only human)
This girl needs more than occasional
Hugs as a token of love from you to me

I"m not your superwoman (Oh, no, oh, no, oh, no)
I"m not the kind of girl that you can lay down (Don"t let me, don"t let me down)
And think that everything"s okay
Boy, I am only human (Only, only, only, only human, yeah)
This girl needs more than occasional
Hugs as a token of love from you to me

I"m not your superwoman (I"m not your superwoman)
I"m not the kind of girl that you can lay down
And think that everything"s okay {Don"t even try it}
Boy, I am (Don"t) only human (Don"t let me down, I"m only human)
This girl needs more than occasional
Hugs as a token of love from you to me

Waiting on You

length: 4:56
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting
I'm waiting on you

I finished all my chores
Closed the windows, locked the doors
Trying to settle in for the night

Climbed the stairs and looked around
Slowly turned and came back down
I turned the TV on just for light

Something in my mind
Keeps telling me our love is strong
Give him just a little more time, you'll see
He's coming home
(He's coming home)

So I'm waiting on you
(I'm waiting on you)
To get through doin' what you had to do
So we two can get back to me and you

I'm waiting on you
(I'm waiting on you)
'Cause they have no idea how we got through
But you knew, that's why I'm waiting on you
(Sitting here, waiting on you)

I overheard your friends
(Your friends)
Making fun of all the things you did for me
To show how very much you care

I was proud to hear you say
(I love her)
"I love her in a special way
You just don't understand the love we share"

But they kept on talking till you went away
(Talking, talking, talking)
But I know your love will guide you back home someday
(Home someday)

I'm waiting on you
(I'm waiting on you)
To get through doin' what you had to do
(What you had to do)
So we two can get back to me and you

I'm waiting on you
(I'm waiting on you)
'Cause they have no idea what we've been through
But you knew, that's why I'm waiting on you, oh
(Sitting here, waiting on you)

I never got the chance to tell you in advance
About the life that's growing more inside of me
I'm glad you did not know, 'cause it left you free to go

And if you get back
(If you get back)
I know this is where you want to be
(I know this is where)

So I'm waiting on you
(I'm waiting on you)
To get through doin' what you had to do
So we two can get back to me and you

I'm waiting on you
(I'm waiting on you)
'Cause they have no idea what we've been through
But you knew, that's why I'm waiting on you

(I'm waiting on you)
To get through doin' what you had to do
So we two can get back to me and you

I'm waiting on you
(I'm waiting on you)
They have no idea how we got through
But you knew, that's why I'm waiting on you, oh
(Sitting here, waiting on you)

I'm waiting on you
(Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting)
Patiently waiting on you
(I'm waiting on you)

Oh baby, come home to me, set me free
I'm waitin' on you, oh darling

In This Life
