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 . . .

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” Written by Brent Moyer and Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright GrosVentre Music / Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Gavin West and Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Gavin West / Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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?

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Bill Warrington Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Bill Warrinton Music (BMI)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Ron Young Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Wild Dreams Publishing (BMI)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart & Carmen M.

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)
