Walk the Tightrope

length: 3:42

The best of what you got

Foolish people better walk
Don't say nothin' when they talk
No they'll never see all they're meant to be
Just livin' on the spot

Now I'm movin with the times I
Can't escape what I believe
Cause all I need's all I know
So I - Walk the tightrope let myself go

[chorus]
Walk the tightrope we call life
I walk the tightrope
Step by step I take the street - yeah
Live my life, can't stop my feet
My feet from dancin'
Walk the line come walk with me - yeah

Walk the city late at night
Don't you stop it - you can't fight
Walk the borderline, take a chance this time
And run with what you got

There's no trouble in my mind cause I
Ain't got nothin' left to prove
All that you get is what I show
So I - Walk the tightrope let myself go

[chorus]

Walk the line. Now's the time
Walk the tightrope - Yeah
Walk the line , Now's the time
Walk the tightrope - Yeah
Roll with what you know

Now I'm movin with the times I
Can't escape what I believe
Cause all I need's all I know
So I - Walk the tightrope let myself go

[chorus]



To Be With You

length: 2:47
A broken heart can't be that bad
When it's through - it's through
Fate can twist the both of you
So c'mon baby, come on over
Let me be the one to show you

[chorus]
I'm the one who wants to be with you
Deep inside I hope you feel it too
Waited on a line of greens and blues
Just to be the next to be with you

Build up your confidence
so you can be on top for once
Wake up, who cares about little boys
That talk too much
I've seen it all go down
The game of love was all rained out
So c'mon baby, come on over
Let me be the one to hold you

[chorus]

Why be alone when we can be together baby
You can make my life worthwhile
I can make you start to smile
When it's through - it's through
Fate can twist the both of you
So c'mon baby, come on over
Let me be the one to show you

[chorus]



She's Back (Again)

length: 3:10
Took some time to heal
To get my heartbeat back
Just when I'm ahead
Returning from the dead
She's back again...

She knows just what to say
She always gets her way
Just when I was free
She's back inside of me
She's back again

So tell me why the hell I hear music
Every time she calls I hear music
Is it just the way she loves to confuse me
Oh baby
Just when I moved on
Believed that she was gone
She's back again...
She's back again

Like a predator and prey
She'll tear my heart away
She'll chew me to the bone
Leave me rotting here alone
'Til she's back again

So tell me why the hell I hear music
Every time she calls I hear music
Is it just the way she loves to confuse me
Oh baby
Just when I moved on
Believed that she was gone
She's back again...
She's back again

When You Say You Love Me

length: 4:03
I've been watching you from afar
And the way you make your way round the bar
You laugh like you're really entertained
And you smile like it's your favorite game

Now you move in closer to me
And our eyes are connected emotionally
Not lookin' for a one night stand
Or a place for a broken heart to mend

I know everybody here wants to hold you
I know what it's like 'cause I feel the same
When you look in my eyes
There's a part of me that's still afraid

[Chorus]
When you say you love me - do you mean it?
Baby when you hold me do you feel it?
Should I believe the magic in your eyes?
I'll be waiting till the end of time
To hear you say you love me like you mean it
Baby when you hold me, make me feel it
All I want to do is make you mine
I been hurt way too many times

They say if you want to make god laugh
Then all you gotta do is tell him your plans
I know that the timings not right
Didn't know I would meet you tonight

It's not that I don't really like the attention
Cause I feel like the only man in the room
Are you really sincere?
Is it just something that you do?

[Chorus]

Again and again and again
I've been hurt my friend to the end
Though I high I been low
I got no place left to go
Again and again and again
when will this searching end

[Chorus]

Haunted

length: 4:08
In a house without your light
Anymore
Just don't feel the same
If my mind could speak
What my heart would say
I'll let it be and go away

Midnight's gone
And it's been too long
Now I'm a shadow of myself
You left me wanting nothing else

[chorus]
This house is haunted since you left me, baby
This heart is broken and I'm going crazy
The scent of youLeft me so consumed
Your presence is in every room
My heart is haunted
Everything I wanted
Left with you baby I'm haunted

Your silhouette is gone
It had to fade
But I still feel you here
Angels never cry
Rain won't subside
Am I feeling heaven's tears
My soul can't leave what I used to need
And its more than I can throw away
Another sun has set
But I can't forget
Deep inside I feel the pain
Cause I won't see you back again

[chorus]

There's nothing left anymore
Gotta let you go
No shame, No hurt no more
I gotta let it go



Deja Vu

length: 3:25
I want to find that perfect moment
To believe in love want to spread my wings and fly
But every time you get up close to me
I'm constantly reminded
How much tears can cost
How much hope is lost when love dies

[Chorus]
Deja Vu
Have I been here before with you
Didn't want to
Cause I don't want to make
The same mistake with you
Deja Vu
Yes I've been here before it's true
Deja Vu
And I don't want to make
The same mistake with you
And I want to swim through loves emotions
Want to trust in you and
Leave these doubts behind
But lately you've become a mystery
I'm constantly afraid now
Said you'd spare me pain
Never play those games but you lied
Deja Vu
Yes I've been here before it's true
Deja Vu
And I don't want to make
The same mistake with you
I know that somethings going wrong
So how can we just carry on
But its so hard to move along without you
Without you

[Chorus]

Don't - I'm in love with you
And I'm feelin' like it's
Deja Vu
Don't - A mistake with you
Is a thing I don't want to do

She

length: 3:58
If I hailed a taxi cab would it
Send me the right way
If I had another chance
would I want to change my life today
Cause lately I've been thinking
Is it really worth the ride
But she's the one that's telling me
Just to give it one more try
When I'm lost and just don't know what to do
She's the voice in me just guiding me through

[chorus]
I'm never gonna leave her she's my friend
I'm never gonna run away
To find a better day
And I'm never gonna tell her goodbye
She's the reason I'm alright
I don't need a way to see tomorrow where I'll be
I could wish for many things
But the future ain't all up to me
She's the one I trust in
Like I trust the beating of my heart
Never gonna lose my way cause
I found my guiding star
When I'm down and just don't know what to do
She's the voice in me just guiding me through

[chorus]
I'm alright
She's the reason why

[chorus]


Woke Up in Love (interlude)

length: 1:12
Woke up in love
This is something i can be guilty of doing.

Sent from above
I don't want it to win
Can't you understand

Woke up in love
Was the beat of the dancing
That got me romancing.

Woke up in love
Just when that was enough, Wo-oah
then im walking down the line.

Never before, ah ah ah ah

Coz its all about love
(unrecognisable words)
The love that i feel
Dreams are so real and so right
Hold on tight.

Meant to Be

length: 4:43
I started to cry
You held me
I'll do anything you tell me

[chorus]
Cause you and I are meant to be
I feel it when we touch
You're the first one who
Could love me so much
You find a wall and break it down
You uncover a lie, the truth is found
You're good for me
It's meant to be - oh yeah

And when I kiss you
I always close my eyes
It feels so incredible
Like your blood flows through mine
We are one
Your smile's so warm and bright
like the sun

[chorus]

It's a miracle, It's a miracle
It's a miracle oh yeah

[chorus]



Life Just Gets Better

length: 3:35
You can't take it much longer
Don't cry, leave it all up to me
And I - I'll be all you need, let it be

[chorus]
Blame it all on the way that love can fall
Let the music take control
Take a chance if you dare
Ain't going nowhere
Life just gets better
When the writing's on the wall
Take the rise don't take the fall
Take a chance if you dare
Ain't going nowhere
Life just gets better

Baby you've been wasting your time
But there's always tomorrow
Don't you weigh this blame
On your mind
C'mon baby, just let it go
Don't cry, leave it all up to me
And I - I'll be all you need, let it be

[chorus]
So let me hold you
And show you a better way
Just let me open your eyes
Know that you're gonna survive
Baby don't cry



Raining in California

length: 3:47
Once in a lifetime the moment I prayed for
I never thought would come
How can I let you go, now that I love you so
Let the tears fall like rain in California

Why - give me a reason why
Tell me where I went wrong
I'm watching the hours crawl by
I'm learning to be alone
Now that you've gone away so many words to say
(I still feel so much inside)
But this time I know why

[chorus]

Let it rain, let it rain
Forever and a day
Till I see you again
Let it rain
I'm feelin' my heart grow cold
Now I'm without you
All of the dreams I hold
Are only about you
So - what if our stars are crossed
Who hasn't loved and lost
(But I'm not the first to cry)
But this time I know why

[chorus]



Love Is Blind

length: 3:33
Silent night, a lonely night
I didn't mean to wake you up I was leaving anyway
We never asked each other why
We only made each other cry

When the day becomes the night
And all that I have left inside is scattered on the wind

Didn't I give you all that love could bring
Didn't I give you more than everything
You know it hurts to end like this, when we've come so far

Don't tell me love is blind
Cause I know what I see
Tell me how you walk away when all you've known is me
And all that might have been
And what we left behind
Don't ever let a living person tell you love is blind

Memories of summer days
Laughing like a little child and lying in your arms
And we would own the stars like days of old
We'd make a vow to have and hold

Now we see the empty stage
The actors gone the empty page
The tears between the lines
Save me from these wild imaginings
Try to stop my heart remembering
Acting like there's someone else, when there's only me
So tell me what to say
Tell me what to do
Tell me how to walk away when all I see is you
Shadows on the wall
Pictures in your mind
Never let a living person tell you love is blind



Guilty (One in a Million)

length: 3:55
I'm ready, yeah, yeah

We got nothing to be guilty of our love
It's one in a million, oh, one in a million

You know I knew you were the one when I saw your eyes
Even though your lifestyle looked kind of occupied
I never once thought twice about the way I feel
And the woman that I am I thought I?d keep it real

But then you sent me love letters saying love me today
Tall stem roses saying baby let's run away
I was mesmerized thinking that you want me to stay
And I couldn't quiet say the words I wanted to say, yeah

From the day that I saw your face, girl
You didn't need to hide I could see you were lonely
Even though you gave your heart to another
Well, it hurts even more to see you cry

Now there's nothing wrong
'Cause I know that it's been too long since you felt love
I want to take you out of this place
We can find a space well

We got nothing to be guilty of our love its one in a million
So, girl, let's ride tonight on a highway to the sky, oh yeah
Don't wanna hear goodbye

It was paralyzing running in the sand
Holding hands and the candle light dinners
Proved that you were my man
Now I can't deny just how I feel inside

I'm in ecstasy every time you get next to me
You tell me that you're lucky and I tell you back
Now I'm here to stay, baby boy and it?s a fact
That nothing could compare to the times we share a
And the love that we made was a sweet, sweet thing

We got nothing to be guilty of our love, it's one in a million
So, girl, let's ride tonight on a highway to the sky
I wanna ride ride, don't want to hear goodbye

We got nothing to be guilty of
At any time because we making love
We got nothing to be guilty of
We got nothing, we got nothing

We got nothing to be guilty of
At any time because we making love
We got nothing to be guilty of
We got nothing, we got nothing

From the day that I saw your face, girl
You didn't need to hide I could see you were lonely
Even though you gave your heart to another
Well, it hurts even more to see you cry

Now there's nothing wrong
'Cause I know that it's been too long since you felt love
I want to take you out of this place
We can find a space well

No need to be guilty, baby
There's no need to be guilty, babe
No need to be guilty, baby
There's no need to be guilty, babe
