Vision

length: 3:37

Ah yeah, let me tell you all about it
I've been thinkin about you night and day
Sure been restless since you went away
You took something from me against my will
Touched a nerve in me that's tingling still
You just snuck up behind me
When my resistance was low
And nows a hell of a time to find I can't let you go
Got your first letter just the other day
Since I got it I can't put it away
I just sit and read it over and over and over again
As if the words that you wrote could bring this hurt to and end

Well you just left me here waiting
Left a wound that won't heal
God your so far away you don't know how I feel
So say you'll take a chance on this heart of mine
Don't make me the one that you left behind
And I'm not saying anybody's wrong or right
Just know I'd die to be with you tonight

I count the hours each time till your gone
I don't have to let you leave me
It makes no sense at all
If I have to follow you all around the world
I'd be willing to do anything to get to you girl

You just left me here waitin
Left a wound that won't heal
God your so far away you don't know how I feel
So say you'll take a chance on this heart of mine
Don't make me the one that you left behind
And I'm not saying anybody's wrong or right
Just know I'd die to be with you tonight
Ah yeah
So say you'll take a chance on this heart of mine
Don't make me the one that you left behind
I'm not saying anybody's wrong or right
Just know I'd die to be with you tonight
Oh
I'd die to be with you tonight
Ah ha ha ha
I'd die to be with you tonight

I count the hours each time that your gone

Daylight

length: 4:08
Lock the door
Shut the window tight]
Close the curtains
Just go block out the light
I feel the sun
Shining in my eyes
I'm just trying to cover up a little bit of daylight

Hide my face
I don't want to be seen
Is there somebody out there
Am I awake or asleep
I'm just trying to cover up a little bit of daylight

I suppose I should get out of bed
Not sleep all day
I should get up
Get out of the house
But not till the end of day

Little bit of daylight
Little bit of daylight
Little bit of daylight
Little bit of daylight

Well I'm just trying to cover up a little bit of daylight
Well I'm just trying to cover up a little bit of daylight
Yes I

Say it's going to last, say you'll never leave

If I gave you all that you need
If I gave you all that you want
Will you promise me, promise me you'll call
Won't you promise me you'll call

No Second Prize

length: 4:23
Oh Yeah

I heard about a person who had a broken heart
With nothing to drive him on, no hope no spark no flame
He couldn't see at all tears they were blinding him
He kept it all inside, the guilt and all the pain
You know I say I tried to warn him
They had him backed up against the wall
I hope I'm not too late

No one can tell you exactly what you have gotta be
You've got to stand your ground and fight to save your life
It may be hard but ooh ooh it's the only way
Always remembering there ain't no second prize
There ain't no second prize

You know I say I tried to warn him
They had him backed up against the wall
Why can't I stand up and try to tell him
They've got me backed up against the wall
I hope I'm not too late

No one can tell you exactly what you have gotta be
You've got to stand your ground and fight to save your life
It may be hard but ooh ooh it's the only way
Always remembering there ain't no second prize
There ain't no second prize

Oh no there ain't no second prize
There ain't no second prize

Oh no there ain't no second prize
There's not gonna be no second prize

Oh no there ain't no second prize
Oh there's no second prize

Oh no there ain't no second prize
Never never never never gonna be

Oh no there ain't no second prize

Boys Cry Out for War

length: 4:11
Sitting here in this coffee shop
Not knowing what to do
Not knowing whether to start or stop
This fight ain't between just me and you
All the boys they've been talking
They've been saying your doing me wrong
Yes they have

And all the boys cry out for war

The man sitting there in Washington
He don't know right from wrong
He don't know whether to stand and fight
Or turn around and run

All the boys they've been talking
They've been saying your doing me wrong
Yes they have

And all the boys cry out for war

The man sitting there in Washington
He don't know right from wrong
He don't know whether to stand and fight
Or turn around and run

And all the boys cry out for war

Well I'm a week away from paradise
And now I'm gonna have some fun
To forget about work
I'm gonna
Have to drink ten gallons of rum
I'm gonna dance all night
And sleep all day
I'll probably spend about
Three weeks pay
I've got a week away from paradise
And now I want to have some fun

Well I'm a week away from paradise
And now I want to jump and shout
I'm gonna head straight down to every club up town
And probably get chucked out
And I hope the lord lets me sin
As long as I can do it tomorrow again
I've got a week away from paradise
And now I want to jump and shout

Well I'm a week away, I'm a week away
I'm a week away
I'm just a week away from paradise
A week away
A week away
I'm just a week away from paradise

When they cut you down and make you cry at night
I'll still be the one to wipe
Those tears straight from your eyes

Well I'm a week away from paradise
And now I want to jump and shout
I'm gonna head straight down to every club up town
And probably get chucked out
And I hope the lord lets me sin
As long as I can do it tomorrow again
I've got a week away from paradise
And now I want to jump and shout

When they cut you down and make you cry at night
I'll still be the one
To wipe those tears straight from your eyes

I don't wanna talk I don't wanna fight
Just wanna get up and drink all night
I'm a week away and now I wanna have some fun

Well I'm a week away, I'm a week away
I'm just a week away from paradise
A week away
A week away
I'm just a week away from paradise
A week away
A week away

A Change Is Gonna Come

composer: Sam Cooke
lyricist: Sam Cooke

I was born by a river
In a little town
And just like that river I've been Running
Ever since
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know
A change is gonna come
Yes it is

It's been too hard livin'
But i'm afraid to die
I don't know what's up there
Beyond the sky
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know
A change is gonna come
Yes it is

Here I go to my brother
I say brother help me please
But if lifes up like a flame
Like a warm fire near you

There's been times when I'm bad
I could laugh too long
But now I know I may die
I just carry on
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know
A change is gonna come
Yes it will
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know
A change is gonna come
Yes it will

YOU SAY I'VE GOT A LOT OF PROBLEMS
AND I KNOW IT'S TRUE
I ONLY OWN WHAT'S ON MY BACK
AND THAT AIN'T TOO NEW
WHY DON'T I FIND A PROPER JOB
AND GET MY SELF SOME DOUGH
DON'T LIKE MY CAR
OR MY MANNERS
OR ME I KNOW

YOU PUSH ME AROUND A LOT
YOU TREAT ME BAD A LOT
YOU KNOW IT HURTS SO MUCH
BUT I DON'T MIND
'CAUSE I'M THICKSKINNED

FRIEND SAY YOU ALWAYS PUT ME DOWN
BUT BABY I DON'T MIND
'CAUSE WHEN THE NIGHT TIME COMES IT'S ME
YOU WRAP YOUR ARMS AROUND

YOU PUSH ME AROUND A LOT
YOU TREAT ME BAD A LOT
YOU KNOW IT HURTS SO MUCH
BUT I DON'T MIND
'CAUSE I'M THICKSKINNED

YOU PUSH ME AROUND A LOT
YOU TREAT ME BAD A LOT
YOU KNOW IT HURTS SO MUCH
BUT I DON'T MIND
'CAUSE I'M THICKSKINNED

YOU PUSH ME AROUND A LOT
YOU TREAT ME BAD A LOT
YOU KNOW IT HURTS SO MUCH
BUT I DON'T MIND
'CAUSE I'M THICKSKINNED.

Piece of My Heart

length: 4:08
lyricist: Bert Russell Berns, Jerry Ragovoy
composer: Jerry Ragovoy, Bert Russell Berns
Make sense of the world when it’s upside down
Spinning so fast, but for some it just ends
Keep moving on quiet as kept
It hasn’t been long, hasn’t sunken in yet

Then I fall into pieces
I’m here and you’ve left
Fall into pieces
I’ll never see you again
Separate like a puzzle floating in space
So lost in this galaxy of life
So lost

There’s so many things we haven’t said
There’s so many places never went
Wish you could visit every now and then
Oh I keep pretending like I understand
Was it something that I could prevent?
Oh I miss you like a piece is gone
So lost

Cause I fall into pieces
I’m here and you’ve left
Oh I fall into pieces
Never seeing you again
I separate like a puzzle and I’m floating in space
So lost in this galaxy of life

So I rise and fall like the tide
And I’m so full and empty inside
All those memories linger in my mind
Wish you were here with me

I said I fall into pieces
I’m here and you’ve left
Oh I fall into pieces
I’ll never see you again
I separate like a puzzle and I’m floating in space
So lost in this galaxy of life
