Last to Know

length: 4:28

Where does love go
When you're not in love
How does it feel when nobody wants it
Tell me does it float around
Like a little lost cloud
When a heart is not its home

What does love do
When it's not being used
Feeling like just don't belong
Tell me is it laying awake
In the middle of the night
Just thinking 'bout what went wrong

'Cause when I look in your eyes - it's just not there
When I hunger for affection - the cupboard is bare
I don't know why I keep hanging on
When love's got the message and its already gone

Why am I always the last to know
Tell me why is it always me alone
Still dancing when the party's over
Why am I always the last to see
Just a fool who believes you're still in love with me
Even love can see it's over
I'm always the last to know

What do I do
Till I'm back on my feet
Do I hang around and try to pretend
That I'm really over you
And it won't take long
Till love says it's my turn again

'Cause when I look in your eyes - it's just not there
When I hunger for affection - the cupboard is bare
I don't know why I keep hanging on
When love's got the message and its already gone

Why am I always the last to know
Tell me why is it always me alone
Still dancing when the party's over
Why am I always the last to see
Just a fool who believes you're still in love with me
Even love can see it's over
I'm always the last to know

The next time I fall
I'll be taking my time
To find out if her heart is mine

Why am I always the last to know
Tell me why is it always me alone
Still dancing when the party's over
Why am I always the last to see
Just a fool who believes you're still in love with me
Even love can see it's over
I'm always the last to know

Cruel

length: 5:18
You can say love's forever
And find it never stays
In you I've recovered
The one thing that must remain
I'm tired of a world undone
I've figured out you're my setting sun
It's cruel
The way I'm needing you
I guess I'll play the fool
It's my heart, not my mind and it's taking over
Cruel
Suddenly it's true
No longer can I choose
It's in you I'm defined and there is no other
Oh it's cruel
Oh it's cruel

I can hold back emotions
Get lost in a maze
But this urgency tells me
I just can't refrain
Dreams have come and passed me by
But now it's time to redefine (yeah)
It's cruel
The way I'm needing you
I guess I'll play the fool
It's my heart, not my mind and it's taking over
Cruel
Suddenly it's true
No longer can I choose
It's in you I'm defined and there is no other

I've seen it come and go so many times
But this is critical, the truth
I can't hide
(can't hide)
And I don't know why

(and I don't know why, I don't know why)
Yeah, oh yeah
(so cruel)
So cruel, oh
It's cruel the way I'm loving you, oh yeah
(so cruel)
Cruel the way I'm loving you

It's cruel
The way I'm needing you
I guess I'll play the fool
(it's cruel the way I'm loving you)
(baby now I know it's true)
It's my heart, not my mind and it's taking over
Cruel
Suddenly it's true
No longer can I choose
It's in you I'm defined and there is no other

Mary's Garden

length: 4:01
You're steppin' out from daddy's world
But beauty falls
For richer boys with richer toys
No love at all

Silverbells can't make you feel
The way a lover's kisses do
(The way a lover's kisses do)
Let it go and feel the passion
Grow inside when I'm with you

Ooh Mary, Mary
Dance in my garden tonight
(Dance in my garden ooh Mary, Mary)
Girl, don't you hear me
Dance in my garden tonight
(Dance in my garden, ooh Mary, Mary)

Count to ten, close your eyes
Can you visualize a better man
Well, here I am
So let me be your fantasy, I know I can

Diamond things can't make you feel
The way two naked lover's do
(The way that naked lover's do)
Let it go and feel the fire
When I'm making love to you

Ooh Mary, Mary
Dance in my garden tonight
(Dance in my garden ooh Mary, Mary)
Girl, don't you hear me
Dance in my garden tonight
(Dance in my garden ooh Mary, Mary)

Mary's got the money
Mary's got the time
Mary's got the honey

Ooh Mary, Mary
Dance in my garden tonight
(Dance in my garden ooh Mary, Mary)
Girl, don't you hear me
Dance in my garden tonight
(Dance in my garden ooh Mary, Mary)

Mary's got the money
Mary's got the time
Mary's got the honey
A damn good lover's find

Counting Down

length: 3:26
Tell me why
I'm so blue
Why I'm losing myself inside
Tell me what should I do
Never thought I'd have tears to hide


I know
I'm missing you
I know it's true


Now I'm just counting down the hours
Now I'm just counting down the tears that I cry
Cause I always thought we'd be forever
Now I'm just counting down the days since you were here


Conversation's so hard
There's not a single day that you fall from my mind
I keep the perfect facade
Nobody knows how I burn deep inside


I know
I'm missing you
I know it's true

CHORUS

I'm so alone
Now I count the moments
Since you went away
There's just nothing to compare
Now I count the days

CHORUS

Don't Cry (US radio mix)

length: 4:02
Sometimes things can get crazy
But that's no reason to go run and hide
I haven't heard from you lately
The days and nights just keep passing on

Well I guess that it's over
But I have no fear in letting go
I gotta look to the future
It's time to face the music
And make it on my own so

[Chorus]
Don't cry for me baby
I'm operating on a natural high
Don't you cry for me baby
The past is over so kiss it goodbye

Don't you stand in my shadow
Cause when you do I take it personal
I guess it's time to let you go
Can't sit here waiting for a miracle

I got to get a reaction
Communication seems to be a no
What happened to the attraction
If I don't get an answer
I think I better go so,

[Chorus]

Don't you cry for me
Don't shed a tear for me
I'm gonna be alright
Don't you cry for me
I'm not in misery
I can't wait

I'm gonna have me a good time

[Chorus]

So dry your eyes, no need to cry, no time for sad goodbyes
It's time to go, nothing to show, so baby don't you cry

Depend on Me

length: 4:44
Where did you go?
Where did you come from?
'Cause I been waiting
For the perfect line and I'm just in time

I'm not one to judge wrong from right
I just like the way you're dressed tonight
I don't think I've ever seen you here before
We ain't got no time to socialize, it's there in your eyes
That you need someone that you can depend on

If you cannot depend on the one that you love
Depend on me
If you're wanting a man who can give you all you need
I'm your man

You need someone
Don't waste your time
Ain't nobody gonna wait all night
For you to decide

I'm not one to judge wrong from right
I just like the way you're dressed tonight
I don't think I've seen you here before
We ain't got no time to socialize

I can see it in your eyes
That you need someone that you can depend on
If you cannot depend on the one that you love
Depend on me
If you're wanting a man
Who can give you all you need, I'm your man

If you want love, If you want faith
If you want a man who's richer, baby
If you want love, I'll satisfy
If you want love, If you want faith
If you want a man who's rich, I'll satisfy

We got time so we can fool around
Satisfy our every need
Maybe baby we can lose the crowd
Play the music loud

'Cause I just wanna be with you, baby
Be with you, baby
Baby, you have always been the one that I been looking for
And you need someone that you can depend on

If you cannot depend on the one that you love
Depend on me
If you're wanting a man who can give you all you need
I'm your man

If you want love, If you want faith
If you want a man who's richer, baby
If you want love, I'll satisfy
If you want love, if you want faith
If you want a man who's rich, I'll satisfy

Be There With You

length: 3:53
I never cared for simple words of tenderness
I never thought my life could be as sweet as this
But now I know, I want to spend it all with you, baby

I drive my car and think about you constantly
I lie awake and I want to feel you next to me
What can I do? My life's only complete with you, baby
Oh don't you know

You are the one I treasure
A part of me forever

And I'll be there with you
Whatever you do
With all of my heart I promise you
I'll be there with you

Just know that it's true
With all of my heart I'm there for you
Wherever you go I'll be there
Whatever we're up against
Just know that I'll be there with you

You're like the sun that brightens up the darkest skies
The only one I'm seeing when I close my eyes
Oh can't you see, you'll never be alone again, baby
Don't you know

You are the one I treasure
A part of me forever

You're like the sunrise I've waited to see
A beautiful moment always with me
I've waited a lifetime only to be, be with you

You're like the sunrise I've waited to see
A beautiful moment always with me
I've waited a lifetime only to be, be with you

Bring Her Back

length: 4:46
Bring her back
Just bring her back to me
Bring her back
Just bring her back to me

Another night without you
Another hour to wonder why
I care so much about you
I never meant to make you cry

Tell me why did she
Have to go and leave
Where can I find peace
Why can't somebody

Bring her back
Just bring her back to me
So I can hold her in my arms again

Bring her back
Just bring her back to me
Bring her back into my heart again

I'll kiss your lips so tenderly
I'll be so gentle when we touch
And when I hold you close to me
I'll whisper I love you so much

Girl I swear to you
Gonna treat you right
And know I'm gonna love you
For the rest of my life

I can't go on without you
No I can't go on without you

I can't imagine
Having to go through my whole life without you
I want to know
What on earth I have to do

I can't go on without you
No I can't go on without you

Send It in a Letter

length: 3:58
I saw it somewhere in a magazine
Or maybe saw it playing on a TV screen
Something about love, now I forget it
Maybe it was how not to regret it, oh yeah

I heard it playing out on the radio
It said when you're in love you gotta take it slow
But baby, with you I can't beat about it
I just got to make you believe it, oh yeah

So I'll send it in a letter, baby
Write it on the wall
That's the way I like it
Losing all control

Send it in a letter, baby
Then you'll understand
You put a start on me
Right through the heart of me

Somebody help me now get back to ground
The way you got me turnin' upside down
But baby, you know I can't do without it
I get depressed just thinking about it, oh yeah

So I'll send it in a letter, baby
Write it on the wall
That's the way I like it
Losing all control

Send it in a letter, baby
Then you'll understand
You put a start on me
Right through the heart of me

'Cause I like all the things that you do to me
And I'm sending my message to you
You got a special kind of mystery
And it sends me on

So I'll send it in a letter, baby
Write it on the wall
That's the way I like it
Losing all control

Send it in a letter, baby
Then you'll understand
You put a start on me
Right through the heart of me

7 Lonely Days

length: 3:55
I wanna be
Just where you wanna be
I wanna be
Just where you wanna be

7 lonely nights
7 lonely days
I been thinking 'bout you girl
In just as many ways

Running out of money
Running out of time
Feeling kind of empty
Like a cheap valentine

Now I'm used to
Everything I want
But now I will give you
Everything you need

Baby I been thinking about you
7 lonely days are on my mind
Baby, I really miss you
I really miss your touch

I wanna be, just where you wanna be
I wanna be, just where you wanna be
Baby, I really miss you
I really miss your touch

Rum and cola nights
Melancholy days
Stare at my reflection
And the error of my ways

Now all the kings horses
And all of his men
Can't stop me wishing
I was holding you again

Now I know
You're everything I want
And now I wanna give you
Everything you need

7 lonely days
And lonely nights
I been missing you
I just want my baby by my side

Do you miss me too
It doesn't take a weaker man
To need someone to hold his hand
And to miss your touch

I want to be where you
Want to be I do
Want to be where you
Want to be

7 lonely days
And lonely nights
I been missing you
I just want my baby by my side

Do you miss me too
It doesn't take a weaker man
To need someone to hold his hand
And to miss your touch

Now That I Found You

length: 3:30
You see
The real me
No in betweens
I had nowhere to hide
You took away the walls around me
Made me feel safe to share the truth

I see the heavens open
A heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer
You touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain't enough to love you true
Now that I found you

Believe
We're meant to be
Our chemistry will last forever
And through the years
We'll see some tears
We'll conquer fears
Together we will grow

Looking in your eyes they tell me
I no longer have to be alone

I see the heavens open
A heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer
You touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain't enough to love you true
Now that I found you

You, you see me
The real me
You believe in me

I see the heavens open
A heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer
You touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain't enough to love you true
Now that I found you




Temperature Rising

length: 4:30
Everybody wants to feel better
When the pain just won't go away
But I can feel the temperature rising

There's a new day on the horizon
Can't you see I love you too much?
Got a heart that won't let go

I can feel a change in the weather
Like the still before the storm
'Cause I can feel the temperature rising
There's a new day on the horizon

Can't you see I love you too much?
There's a tear inside my soul
And I don't want to let you go
'Cause it's not the same without you
Here with me

Don't let go
(Memories are haunting me)
Don't let go
(Of the days we used to be)
Don't let go
(Nothing ever stays the same)
Don't let me go

Will we ever find the right answers?
Is there a reason to believe?
'Cause I can feel the temperature rising

Don't let go
(Memories are haunting me)
Don't let go
(Of the days we used to be)
Don't let go
(Nothing ever stays the same)
Don't let me go

I can feel the temperature rise, rising up again
I wanna see the love in your eyes
Don't let it ever end

Every Time You Cry

length: 4:47
Never before have I seen you look so blue
Can't find a cure and nothing comforts you
The light at the end of the tunnel
Doesn't shine at the end of the day

[Chorus]
Every time you cry
Save up all your tears
I will be your rainbow, when they disappear
Wash away the pain
till you smile again
I will be the laughter in your eyes
Every time you cry Every time you cry

Time has a way of wounding what has healed
What can I say, I know just how you feel
Your soul is dark and troubled
Like a river running wild

[Chorus]

Well you know that's what I'm here for
And I will give you when you need more
There'll be no hesitation
I will reap no reward

[Chorus]

Eternal Flame

length: 3:21
writer: Susanna Hoffs, Tom Kelly, Billy Steinberg
Close your eyes
Give me your hand darling
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Is this burning an eternal flame

I believe its meant to be darling
I watch you when you are sleeping
You belong with me
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame

Say my name
Sun shines through the rain
My whole life, so lonely
Then you come and ease the pain
I don't want to lose this feeling
Ohhhh

Say my name sunshine's through the rain
My whole life, so lonely
Now you come and ease the pain
I don't want to lose this feeling
Ohhhh

Close your eyes
Give me your hand
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame
