Track Name: The Poison And The Cure
THE POISON AND THE CURE

Under the influence with just one dose
I felt it coarsing through my veins
Intoxicated and I was so high
I never thought I’d be in pain

But then I started needing more and more
until it burned under my skin
I tried to take a stand and stop it cold
I swore I’d never fall again

It’s medication that’s self-inflicted
It’s damn addictive and it seems so pure . . .

Love is the poison and the cure
(Backing Vocals: Love . . . love . . . love . . . )
Love is the poison and the cure
(Backing Vocals: Love . . . love . . . love . . . )

Left untreated with my fate unknown
my recovery was at risk
Since I found the perfect antidote
I’ve been feeling total bliss

I never could have done it on my own
I needed treatment to get clean
Being committed has been good for me
now I have everything I need

It’s medication that’s self-inflicted
It’s damn addictive and it seems so pure . . .

Love is the poison and the cure
(Backing Vocals: Love . . . love . . . love . . . )
Love is the poison and the cure

Track Name: Next Time
NEXT TIME

She gave me all she had
Always made me laugh
Made me feel like I was king
She said her heart was mine
How could I be so blind?
It’s only now I start to see

Next time I’ll know better
Next time – if I ever
If I ever find
Good love – strong and true
I’ll know what to do
So I won’t have to say “next time”

A bitter taste regret
For words I wish I said
Now she’s found somebody new
And I spend my nights alone
Always the last to know
But I won’t have the same excuse

Next time I’ll know better
Next time – if I ever
If I ever find
Good love – strong and true
I’ll know what to do
So I won’t have to say “next time”

I’ll tell her how I feel
Instead of tryin’ to hide
Now that I’ve seen the light
That’s what I’ll do
I’ll dare to bare my soul
I’ll be brave
And even say
“I love you”

Next time I’ll know better
Next time – if I ever
If I ever find
Good love – strong and true
I’ll know what to do
So I won’t have to say “next time”

Track Name: Love That I Believe In
LOVE THAT I BELIEVE IN

I have been in love before
But I have never felt this way
I never, no I've never felt this way
I'm happy, I'm so happy with your love and affection
- You're giving me a love that I believe in

In my heart I know it's true
- I'm in love with only you
In my heart, I'm in love with only you
There's no-one else who makes me feel the way that you make me feel
- You're giving me a love that I believe in

Hold me close
Hold me in your arms
And never let me go
Never let me go
'Cause I'm in love with you
And life will be so easy
If you love me too . . . forever

You don't even need to try
And you can make me feel so good
You make me, you can make me feel so good
I'm happy, I'm so happy with your love and affection
- You're giving me a love that I believe in

Hold me close
Hold me in your arms
And never let me go
Never let me go
'Cause I'm in love with you
And life will be so easy
If you love me too . . . forever

Track Name: Once Again
ONCE AGAIN

Over and over, conversations in my mind
Still nothing changes, ‘cause I can’t go back in time
So I carry on, and tell my friends I hate you
For the way you treated me there in the end
But most of all I hate the way I miss you
And I wish that I could hold you once again

Once again, now and forever
Once again, how I could still love you
Day by day I’m growing stronger,
but I’d throw it all away
To hear you say you love me . . . once again

Time will be healing, that’s what all of my friends say
I try to believe them, but wonder how long it takes
To carry on, and learn to live without you
I can’t help thinking of you now and then
I close my eyes pretending I could kiss you
Make a wish . . . then I lose you once again

Once again, now and forever
Once again, how I could still love you
Day by day I’m growing stronger,
but I’d throw it all away
To hear you say you love me . . .
To hear you say you love me . . .
To hear you say you love me . . . once again

Track Name: Can't Seem To Let Go
CAN'T SEEM TO LET GO

Too many lies
That I've let myself come to believe in
Too many times
I've been waiting for something more to begin

Now I don't seem
Can't seem to let go of your love
A love I never really had a hold of
I can't leave behind the hopes that still embrace
my heart

Somehow I thought
That in time we might end up as lovers
Now I am lost
And I'm not sure that I can recover

No, I don't seem
Can't seem to let go of your love
A love I never really had a hold of
I'm still hoping that in time you'll feel the way
I do

Don't ask me why
I just know that we'd go good together
Don't say good-bye
And don't tell me this time it's forever

'Cause I don't seem
Can't seem to let go of your love
A love I never really had a hold of
And I'm hoping that you feel the way I feel
inside

Track Name: Teardrops
TEARDROPS

I see them falling down your face
Each one is by another chased
You can ease your troubled mind
Ease your troubled mind with teardrops

And when your eyes are dry again
I'll still be here to hold you
I'll be your lover and your friend
I'll be the one to know you

Your eyes have seen men come and leave
You find it hard now to believe
But let the doubt that's in your eyes
Let the doubt that's in your eyes be teardrops

And when your eyes are dry again
I'll still be here to hold you
I'll be your lover and your friend
I'll be the one to know you

So let your tears caress your cheeks
Let me set your mind at ease

And when your eyes are dry again
I'll still be here to hold you
I'll be your lover and your friend
I'll be the one to know you

Track Name: Letting Go
LETTING GO

I don't know how to say good-bye
So I'll wait and I'll try to hide
Hide the feeling of nothing left
Of faded romance and emptiness

Love, I'm trying to treat you right
But making love's just an alibi
I hold you close, but I'm letting go
And trying hard not to let it show

But I can't go on forever pretending
And you deserve something real
Life is full of unhappy endings
I can't just change how I feel

I don't know how to set you free
The usual words don't sound right to me
You deserve more that just a line
More than words I could hide behind

Love, I'm trying to treat you right
But making love's just an alibi
I hold you close, but I'm letting go
And trying hard not to let it show

Track Name: You're Gonna Miss Me
YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME

You'll be knockin' at my door
But I won't answer
I know
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You'll be callin' out my name
But I won't be there
I know
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You know that you've hurt me
But you won't even try to treat me right
You're gonna cry every day
When I'm away
Girl, if I leave
You're gonna miss me
When I'm gone

You'll be lookin' for my love
When you feel lonely
I know
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You know that you've hurt me
But you won't even try to treat me right
You're gonna cry every day
When I'm away
Girl, if I leave
You're gonna miss me
When I'm gone

You're gonna cry every day
When I'm away
Girl, if I leave
You're gonna miss me
When I'm gone

Track Name: Kind Of Like Alice
KIND OF LIKE ALICE

I'm kind of like Alice
And you're Wonderland
I could be lost forever
I'm a sailboat on an open sea
I like your attitude

Girl, I'm headin' for a hurricane
What say I meet you in the eye
I don't remember how or why I came
We'll talk about it when the storm passes by
We could talk about it when the storm passes by

Yours is a railroad
And honey, I'm a tramp
We could be lost together
I've been lookin' for a place to keep my bags
I think you're goin' my way

Girl, I'll jump the next boxcar that comes along
When you grow weary of my load
Now I'm not meanin' to do anybody wrong
But girl, I'm traveling alone
Girl, I'm traveling alone

I'm kind of like Alice
And you're Wonderland
I could be lost forever
I'm a sailboat on an open sea
I like your attitude

Track Name: Traces Of Your Heart
TRACES OF YOUR HEART

Time after time
I get the feeling that there's more behind your eyes
More than you will let me see

(I) I have to wonder
Will we ever really know each other's minds
Or will we have to make believe

And I think I'm seein' traces of your heart
I'm tryin' hard to understand
I think I'm seein' traces of your heart
-- I think I am

Now and again
When we're together I catch whispers in the air
Still, I don't know what they mean

And I think I'm seein' traces of your heart
I'm tryin' hard to understand
I think I'm seein' traces of your heart
-- I think I am

Track Name: What Good's A Heart?
WHAT GOOD’S A HEART?

What good’s a heart unless it’s been broken?
I’ve learned to be strong by keeping mine open
Your world may be shattered when love falls apart
But if you’re afraid
To give it away
What good’s a heart?

The times that you shared, the love that you made
You miss him tonight, but the memories will fade
It’s time to move on, no time for regrets
Love’s never wrong, forgive and forget

What good’s a heart unless it’s been broken?
I’ve learned to be strong by keeping mine open
Your world may be shattered when love falls apart
But if you’re afraid
To give it away
What good’s a heart?

I know how it hurts, I know how you’ve cried
I’ve been there before - you’ll be alright
I’m on your side, I do understand
I’ll treat you right, if you’ll take the chance

What good’s a heart unless it’s been broken?
I’ve learned to be strong by keeping mine open
Your world may be shattered when love falls apart
But if you’re afraid
To give it away
What good’s a heart?

What good’s a heart?

Track Name: Don't Keep Leading Me On
DON’T KEEP LEADING ME ON

Why do you lie there in our bedroom at night
Telling me you love me and you'll always be mine

I know the truth, I've got the proof in my hands
Look at these pictures . .. who's that other man?

Don't keep leading me on
Don't whisper pretty words you know I want to hear
Don't keep leading me on
I've opened my eyes and now everything is clear

Over the years I've trusted you with my heart
Now I see you better, and I know how you are

And why you've been gone
– sometimes till late at night
Then when I want to talk
– you want to turn out the light

Don't keep leading me on
Don't whisper pretty words you know I want to hear
Don't keep leading me on
I've opened my eyes and now everything is clear

And I can see what I was not supposed to know
. . . You're letting go

Don't keep leading me on
Don't whisper pretty words you know I want to hear
Don't keep leading me on
I've opened my eyes and now everything is clear


Don't keep leading me on
Don't talk . . . don't talk
Don't keep leading me on
Don't talk . . . don't talk
Don't keep leading me on

Track Name: The World Is Flat
THE WORLD IS FLAT

I used to think the world was round
That I could stray, and not look down
I thought we could go on like that
Now I know the world is flat

She warned me not to go too far
I pushed my luck and broke her heart
I fell from grace, I can't get back
Now I know the world is flat

The world is flat
And unforgiving
Careful where you tread
The world is flat
And I'm admitting
I've fallen over the edge
I've fallen over the edge

It's too late now, I can't rebuild
The love we had in our own world
There is a point that I went past
Now I know the world is flat

The world is flat
And unforgiving
Careful where you tread
The world is flat
And I'm admitting
I've fallen over the edge
I've fallen over the edge

I've fallen over the edge

Track Name: Don't Talk In Your Sleep
DON’T TALK IN YOUR SLEEP

Come on in
Pull the door
Leave your things
On the floor

Let's make the most
Of precious time
Take my hand
Now you're mine

But you keep one eye on the clock
whenever we're alone
Listen up to what I say
before you go back home

Don’t talk in your sleep
If you do, he’ll know my name
Somethin’ ‘bout jealousy
Drives a lover half insane
Redirect your eyes
When you're thinking about me
Make your alibis
And don't talk in your sleep

I'll hold you close
Kiss your lips
You deserve
More than this

But I need you here
For tonight
Damn it all
Wrong or right

Maybe you would like to stay,
but I'm afraid to make you choose
You really should be leaving
'cause you've got too much to lose

Don’t talk in your sleep
If you do, he’ll know my name
Somethin’ ‘bout jealousy
Drives a lover half insane
Redirect your eyes
When you're thinking about me
Make your alibis
And don't talk in your sleep

We're caught up in this dangerous game
Of secret passion, lies and shame
Still, I wouldn't change a thing

So don't talk in your sleep
Don't talk in your sleep
Don't talk in your sleep
Don't talk in your sleep

Track Name: Say The Word
SAY THE WORD

He's left you alone too long
You can't help feelin' lonely
You need someone to talk to darlin'
Well I'd be there, only say the word

Lady you could count on me
I would never leave you for so long

He must not appreciate
How sad an empty room is
Well I'd be there to comfort you girl
All you've got to do is say the word

Lady you could count on me
I would never leave you for so long

I would never leave you for so long

All you've got to say is 'yes'
And I'll be holding you tonight

You don't have to be alone
You just don't have to do it
If you want me to be with you girl
All you've got to do is say the word

All you've got to do is say the word
Say 'yes' - say the word
Say 'yes' - say the word

Track Name: Choose Forever
CHOOSE FOREVER

We're gonna make it
We're gonna make it if we try
So don't worry, don't . . .
Just make up your mind

To stay with me, or go our separate ways
It's so hard to be wondering every day

But don't worry, we're gonna make it if we try

If you choose forever
Hold on to me and don't look back
Our life together
Is in the future, not the past

I'm looking forward to our life that's still ahead
Can't wait to see how much better this can get

Live for our future, hold on to me and don't look back

Choose forever, baby
Choose forever, baby
Choose forever, baby
