Nobody's Fool

length: 4:19
writer: Kenny Loggins, Michael Towers

I know you think, I'm no match for you baby
You like making it rough on me, don't you? My my...
Back to the shadows, ah ah yeah
Nothing suits me better than that

In time to start the healing
Got to learn to be the ball
And I can't keep from laughing at it all
Whoa whoa, I'm going now

I'm going all the way
Sooner or later, gotta love somebody
I don't care how long it takes
Like a shot to the heart, I've got news for you
I may not look so smart, but I'm nobody's fool

Oh no, lassoing love for you baby
Taking it slow, it's too much for me to analyze
Still alright, heading into the rhythm of the southern light

Winds of wild insanity, blow with me tonight
Shouting love to all you cowboys, alright
Whoa whoa, I'm going now

I'm going all the way
Sooner or later, gotta love somebody
I don't care how long it takes
You can turn up the heat, but I'm playing it cool
I know it's hard to believe, but I ain't nobody's fool

I'm going all the way
Sooner or later, gotta love somebody
I don't care how long it takes
You might think that I've not gone to school on you
Baby like it or not, I ain't nobody's fool

My illusion nation become a sound surprise
You may turn to deny it
To the place when the clouds stops the wind in the face
Leaves you dumbfounded there in his waste

I'm going all the way
Sooner or later, gotta love somebody
I don't care how long it takes
Like a shot to the heart, I've got news for you
Maybe I'm not so smart, but I'm nobody's fool

I'm going all the way (Ooh yeah)
I'm going all the way (Nobody's fool baby, nobody's fool)
I don't care how long it takes (I don't care...listen to the right)
I'm going all the way (Who's fooling who?)

I'm Gonna Miss You

length: 4:24
If you've got a lover, and you've made your mind up
You don't want my love anymore
If you're gonna leave and nothing's gonna stop you
And you're absolutely sure
I want to try to change your mind or waste your precious time
Or talk you out of leaving tonight
Just don't ask me to pretend, that I'll fall in love again
The minute you walk out that door
I'm gonna miss you, I'm gonna miss
Every touch and every kiss
I'm gonna miss you, girl when you go
More than you'll ever know
I don't know what I will do, don't even have a clue
Can't think that far ahead right now
Do the things you want to guilt should never haunt you
I'll go on without you somehow
You don't have to call and get 'em, I don't need no friend
I could never see you that way
So don't spare me the lie, and I'll promise not to cry
Baby, when you walk away
I'm gonna miss you, I'm gonna miss
Every touch and every kiss
I'm gonna miss you, girl when you go
More than you'll ever know
I'm gonna miss you, I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss you, I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss you
I won't try to change your mind, no, waste your precious time
Or talk you out of leaving tonight
Just don't ask me to pretend, that I'll fall in love again
The minute you walk out that door
I'm gonna miss you, I'm gonna miss
Every touch and every kiss
I'm gonna miss you, girl when you go
More than you'll ever know

Tell Her

length: 3:37

I know somethin' about love;
you gotta want it bad.
If that girl's (boy's) got into your blood,
go out and get her (him).
If you want her (him) to be the very part of you
That makes you want to breathe,
here's the thing to do:

Tell her (him) that you're never gonna leave her (him),
tell her (him) that you're always gonna love her (him),
tell her (him), tell her (him), tell her (him) tell her (him) right now.

I know somethin' about love;
you gotta show it and make her (him)
see that the moon up above, reach out and get it.
If you want her (him) to be always by your side
and if you want her (him) to only think of you,

Tell her (him) that you're never gonna leave her (him),
tell her (him) that you're always gonna love her (him),
tell her (him), tell her (him), tell her (him) tell her (him) right now.

Ever since the world began,
it's been that way for man, and women
were created to make love their destiny.
Then why should true love be so complicated?
Oh yeah, uh huh!

I know somethin' about love;
you gotta take it and show her (him) what the world's made of.
One kiss will prove it.
If you want her (him) to be always by your side
take her (him) hand tonight, swallow your foolish pride and

Tell her (him) that you're never gonna leave her (him),
tell her (him) that you're always gonna love her (him),
tell her (him), tell her (him), tell her (him) tell her (him) right now.


One Woman

length: 4:08
There have been hard times all around me
I just can't seem to see the light of day.
I need one chance to get away
Before the darkness falls upon me.

I need someone to comfort me
When I can't deal with the pain
Somebody to stand by me.

I need one woman
With the same soul as my own.
I need one woman
We can find our way back home.

If I lose my mind, who will find it?
If I draw a line, I'm gonna cross it today.
There must be one place my spirit's free
If my soul could only find it.

I'm alone in a cold dark place
But there's light on the other side.
Just wait 'till I get my self free, I'll find me

One woman
With the same soul as my own.
I need one woman.
No I can't do this alone.

I need one woman
With the same soul as my own.
Give me one woman
We can find our way back home.

Turn around
Take a step and turn around.
Turn around
Move ahead and turn around.

It's never too late to turn around.
Don't want to wait no longer for

Back to Avalon

length: 5:41
A vision, a flash of light
A gift we were given, within each other's dreams
We lived in the gardens of Avalon
Together, believed that we could live there forever
Then it faded away
Forgetting, we wandered too far from the land we'd known

Of all the lonely people, you're among the lucky few
If it comes even once in a life

[Chorus]
Love is a lesson hard to learn
It's never as easy to return
But if you're willing to go on
We'll find a way back to Avalon

Avalon

They had it, it wasn't far away or imagined
He held her in his arms and planned it all
The towers of Avalon
They warned him, he only turned around for a moment
And everything had changed
He noticed the sun on her face as she turned away

All the lonely people, you're among the lucky few
If it comes even once in a life

[Chorus]

And when you come to know the miracle, it's mystical
When someone else's heart is in your hand
I learned too late, now I must try and find a way back home, ohh

Here is a lesson hard to learn
It's never as easy to return
But if you're willing to go on
We'll find a way back to Avalon

(Avalon)
We gotta go back, someday we'll get it back
(Avalon)
We gotta get it back
(Avalon)
Somebody show me a way, somebody tell me the way
(Avalon)

(Avalon)
We gotta go back, someday we'll get it back
(Avalon)
We gotta get it back
(Avalon)
Somebody show me a way, somebody tell me the way
(Avalon)

She's Dangerous

length: 5:18
Like a lonely hunter,
All of your life,
You blow with the wind,
In a hungry night.
You want what you’re after,
So you follow the beat,
But the music is crazy,
In a mystery.

She knows what you want
You know what’s required,
And without hesitation,
You jump into the fire
You don’t stop to wonder
What she’s done, you guess,
‘Till you’re waking up angry in a cold sweat.

Somewhere, there’s an innocence,
We need to believe,
This time you’re asking too much,
Boy, you can see that…

All it takes is just a look in her eyes
To know she’s dangerous
All you need is just to look in her eyes
To see she’s dangerous

You don’t know what makes you think twice,
How you can feel yourself changing,
And not know why.
You can’t look away, this is all you can see,
Don’t play it to the end, boy,
This is destiny.

Under the tenderness,
The will to survive,
Keeps pushing her out of your reach,
Harder you try, but…

All it takes is just a look in her eyes
To know she’s dangerous
All you need is just to look in her eyes,
She’s dangerous!

Whatever you give, better men tried,
Whether you come to understand, but never know why…

Baby, you think you’ve gotta keep on,
‘Cause you know you’ll play the game,
When the winner takes all…
All you need is just one look in her eyes
To know she’s…
Dangerous!


Somewhere, there’s an innocence,
We need to believe,
This time you’re asking too much,
Boy, you can see that…

All it takes is just a look in her eyes
To know she’s dangerous
All you need is just to look in her eyes
She’s dangerous!

All it takes is just a look in her eyes
To know she’s dangerous
All you need is just to look in her eyes
She’s dangerous!

All it takes is just a look in her eyes
To know she’s dangerous
All you need is just to look in her eyes
She’s dangerous!

True Confessions

length: 3:47
I tried to tell you
But the words always came out wrong
You never knew it
But I loved you all along
Are we two worlds in collision
Maybe it's time for you to listen to my

[Chorus:]
True confessions
My love, I'm givin' you
My true confessions
Show love when you hear my
True confessions

Never meant to hurt you
I was lonely and she was so kind
One stolen moment
That I can't get off my mind
Let's end this silent suspicion
Baby it's time for you to listen to my

[Chorus:]

No more hiding the rage
Gotta let it out of this cage
So won't you show me you care
Ooh baby, won't you share

Hope for the Runaway

length: 4:25
Out in the city strees
Alone and weak from the cold and hunger,
Trembling hands unfold a photograph.
Mom and Dan and Ann Marie,
Smiles from a distant sunrise,
The only smile you've seen in days.

[Chorus:]
Come back to me
Come back my darlin'
Come back to me
Or I will fade away
Come back to me
Come back my darlin'
I still believe in you
My runaway.

Jesse and Willy Lee
Play in the street while their mother wonders,
"Why won't they listen to a word I say?"
I sing a lullaby
To the baby in my arms
And the laughter fades away.

[Chorus]

Come back to me
Come back my darlin'
I'm sending hope
For the runaway
Somewhere a flash of light
Cuts through the night
Like a lighthouse callin'
All of the lost and forgotten.
I made a vow I will continue
'Til I find you.

I'll never stop, I'll never stop believin'
I will wait for you forever
Sending you hope, for the runaway.

Isabella's Eyes

length: 4:48
Somewhere out in space
A moonlit face was watching
Lookin' to find a time to become.
Slowly two lovers lay hypnotized
Holding the moment in their eyes.
World in changes.
Lightly one by one,
We try to hide the mirrors.
But baby they just keep turnin' up
And I know you can't look away from you
When you're lookin' in into
[CHORUS]
Isabella's eyes
Shine your light and make your mama smile.
All our angels come
To welcome the awakening one
Awakening wonder
(Repeat Chorus after second verse, then go down to 3rd verse)
(Repeat Chorus after third verse)
Once I met a man who knew where he was goin'
And let everybody tag along.
But suddenly love had another plan.
Shook him and took him by the hand.
World in changes.
'N' there's a boy I know
Believes that he's in danger
He'll never give up without a fight.
If you open your heart
There's no way to lose
So just surrender to
[BACK TO CHORUS]
Millions of dreams are part of the plan,
But you are the one dream that's real.
This changes everything
Now that I am
In the spell of Isabella's eyes.
[BACK TO CHORUS]

Blue on Blue

length: 3:54
And the ghost stirred deep inside.
All this time and I still feel the cold
From the madness in my pride.
Don't know why you ended it that way
I would've thought that you would tell
me to my face

CHORUS
Color me blue on blu
Color me sadness without you.
Color me blue on blue
And I will wear it well.
I will wear it well.

Painted someone from a vision.
You saw the future in his eyes.
I know that wasn't how you pictured me.
You stole my hope, now I'll never know why.
Two hearts who began to beat as one.
I guess you scared yourself
And now you're on the run.

Out where the world belongs
To only you and I

Meet me halfway
Across the sky

In a lifetime
There is only love
Reaching for the lonely one
We are stronger when we are given love
When we put emotions on the line
Know that we are the timeless ones

Meet me halfway
Across the sky
Out where the world belongs
To only you and I

Meet me halfway
Across the sky
Make this a new beginning of another life.
