You left this morning on an early plane
You left your picture behind to haunt me
You left in a steady rain
You say you'll miss me, say you want me
I'm left this mornin with a world of doubt
I'm left this mornin indecently exposed
So much we never did talk about
And your kiss goodbye, said the case is closed

(chorus)
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose the best love that I've ever found
Don't want to lose you
Why didn't I cry when you said goodbye
Why didn't I break down, break down and say
I don't want to lose you

We met last night in a public place
And your new lover was just across the street
But tears washed across your face
Girl I wanted to, hold you close to me

I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose the best love that I've ever found
Don't want to lose you
Why didn't I cry when you said goodbye
Why didn't I break down, break down

I remember all the things that we did
The warmth of your smile
And your tender touch
I always knew I cared about you girl
I just didn't know how much

(solo)

(chorus)

. . .


Maybe it's too late but
This feelin' is runnin' through my soul
I think I've learned what love is
But I'm afraid I let it go

Maybe it's too late
Maybe you've already changed your mind
Turned lovin' into leavin'
And I'm on the outside

You can't take these words
To bed with you
And hold onto them at night
They can't erase the emptiness
And make everything all right

But your laughter and your tenderness
Will never disappear
No matter where you are tonight
A part of you is here with me

Here with me
I don't know where you are
All I know is I need you to be

Here with me
I know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight
It's my fate to have you here with me

I can hear your voice promising
Your love will never die
I can feel your golden skin on mine
Beneath the desert sky

So how can it be true
How can you just turn and let me go
Let the story of your life with mine
Forever go untold

I can't take these words to bed with me
And hold onto them at night
They can't erase the emptiness
And make everything all right

'Cause your laughter and your tenderness
Will never disappear
No matter where you are tonight
A part of you is here with me

Here with me
I don't know where you are
All I know is I need you to be

Here with me
I know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight
It's my fate to have you here with me

Here with me
I don't know where you are
All I know is I need you to be

Here with me
I know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight
It's my fate to have you here with me

Here with me
I don't know where you are
All I know is I need you to be

Here with me
I know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight

Here with me
Ah, you're here with me
I don't know where you are
Don't know where
All I know is I need you to be, whoa, oh

Here with me
I know it's not too late
Know it's not too late
To turn around and get it straight, oh

Here with me, yeah, yeah
I don't know where you are
I don't know where
I don't know where
I don't know where you are

. . .


As soon as you are able
Woman I am willing
To make the break that we
Are on the brink of
My cup is on the table
Our love is spilling
Waiting here for you to
Take and drink of

So if you're tired of the
Same old story
Turn some pages
I'll be here when you are ready
To roll with the changes

I knew it had to happen
Felt the tables turnin'
Got me through my darkest hour
I heard the thunder clappin'
Felt the desert burnin'
Until you poured on me
Like a sweet sunshower

So if you're tired of the
Same old story
Turn some pages
I'll be here when you are ready
To roll with the changes


Roll with the changes

. . .


You should have seen by the look in my eyes, baby
There was somethin missin'
You should have known by the tone of my voice, maybe
But you didn't listen
You played dead
But you never bled
Instead, you lay still in the grass
All coiled up and hissin'

And though I know all about those men
Still, I don't remember
'Cause it was us, baby, way before then
And we're still together
And I meant
Every word I said
When I said that I love you, I meant
That I love you forever

And I'm gonna keep on loving you
'Cause it's the only thing I want to do
I don't want to sleep
I just want to keep on loving you

And I meant
Every word I said
When I said that I love you, I meant
That I love you forever

And I'm gonna keep on loving you
'Cause it's the only thing I want to do
I don't want to sleep
I just want to keep on loving you

Baby, I'm gonna keep on loving you
'Cause it's the only thing I want to do
I don't want to sleep
I just want to keep on loving you

. . .


You tell me what you think I'm feelin'
You know why I do what I do
Why should you listen to a word I'm sayin'
when it's already so clear to you?
You tell me 'bout my bad intentions
You doubt the very things I hold true
I can no longer live with your misconceptions
Baby all I can say to you, is

That ain't love, I believe you've got the wrong emotion
That ain't love, at least it doesn't feel like love to me
As long as I say what you wanna hear
Do what you wanna do, be who you want me to be
You think that's love, well baby that ain't love to me

We've got to talk it over sometime
These feelings won't just disappear
I'm just gonna keep telling you what's on my mind
Even if it's not what you wanna hear
Oooh right now your world and mine are such different places
Through yours I wander lost and confused
And I feel like I'm speaking in a different language
And the only words I haven't used, are

That ain't love, I believe you've got the wrong emotion
That ain't love, at least it doesn't feel like love to me
As long as I say what you wanna hear
Do what you wanna do, be who you want me to be
You think that's love, well baby that ain't love to me

You keep tellin' me
You know a place where your life would be better
You're makin' plans long-range
But I don't know how you expect to get there
When you refuse to change

(Solo)

Oooh baby
That ain't love, I believe you've got the wrong emotion
That ain't love, at least it doesn't feel like love to me
As long as I say what you wanna hear
Do what you wanna do, be who you want me to be
You think that's love, well baby that ain't love to me

Ooh baby that ain't love
That ain't lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-love
That ain't love, oh no
Baby that ain't love, that ain't love
(That ain't love, that ain't love, oohoo
that ain't love, oohoo)

. . .


Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin' around
They say you got a boyfriend
You're out late every weekend
They're talkin' about you and it's bringin' me down

But I know the neighborhood
And talk is cheaper when the story is good
And the tales grow taller on down the line
But I'm telling you, babe
That I don't think it's true, babe
And even if it is, keep this in mind

You take it on the run, baby
If that's the way you want it, baby
Then I don't want you around
I don't believe it
Not for a minute
You're under the gun
So you take it on the run

You're thinking up your white lies
You're putting on your bedroom eyes
You say you're coming home but you won't say when
But I can feel it coming
If you leave tonight, keep running
And you need never look back again

You take it on the run, baby
If that's the way you want it, baby
Then I don't want you around
I don't believe it
Not for a minute
You're under the gun
So you take it on the run

Take it on the run, baby
If that's the way you want it, baby
Then I don't want you around
I don't believe it
Not for a minute
You're under the gun
So you take it on the run

Take it on the run, baby
If that's the way you want it, baby
Then I don't want you around
I don't believe it
Not for a minute
You're under the gun
So you take it on the run

Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin' around

There was a time some time ago
When every sunrise meant a sunny day, oh a sunny day
But now when the morning light shines in
It only disturbs the dreamland where I lay, oh where I lay
I used to thank the lord when I'd wake
For life and love and the golden sky above me
But now I pray the stars will go on shinin'
You see in my dreams you love me

Daybreak is a joyful time
Just listen to the songbird harmonies, oh the harmonies
But I wish the dawn would never come
I wish there was silence in the trees, oh the trees
If only I could stay asleep, at least I could pretend you're thinkin' of me
'Cause night time is the one time I am happy
You see in my dreams

We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us, we are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me, in my dreams

(Solo)

I keep hopin' one day I'll awaken, and somehow she'll be lying by my side
And as I wonder if the dawn is really breakin'
She touches me and suddenly I'm alive

We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us, we are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me, in my dreams

We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us, we are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me, in my dreams

Oho, in my dreams

. . .


So you figure that you've got him all figured out
He's a sweet talking stud who can melt a girl's heart with his pout
He's the kind of lover that the ladies dream about
Whoo, yes he is

He's got plenty of cash, he's got plenty of friends
He drives women wild, then he drives off in a Mercedes-Benz
He's got a long wick with a flame at both ends
He's hot

But don't let him go
Just give him a chance to grow
Take it easy, take it slow
And don't let him go

He makes you so angry, he makes you so sore
The wait may be worth it, but how can you wait anymore
When you're wondering what you're waiting for
Baby, I don't know

But don't let him go
Just give him a chance to grow
Take it easy, take it slow
And don't let him go
Don't let him go

Baby, don't let him go
Just give him a chance to grow
Take it easy, take it slow
And don't let him go
Don't let him go

Baby, don't let him go
He just needs a chance to grow
Take it easy, take it slow
And don't let him go
Don't let him go

Don't let him go
Don't let him go
Don't let him go

Don't let him go
Don't let him go
Don't let him go, oh no

. . .


I can't fight this feeling any longer
And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow
What started out as friendship has grown stronger
I only wish I had the strength to let it show

I tell myself that I can't hold out forever
I say there is no reason for my fear
'Cause I feel so secure when we're together
You give my life direction, you make everything so clear

And even as I wander, I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window on a cold, dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

And I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

'Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Come crashing through your door
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you
I've been running around in circles in my mind
And it always seems that I'm following you, girl
'Cause you take me to the places that alone I'd never find

And even as I wander, I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window on a cold, dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

And I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

'Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Come crashing through your door
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore

. . .


I used to be lonely till I learned about livin alone
I found other things to keep my mind on
And I'm gettin to know myself a little bit better
Whoa , I keep pushin on
Keep pushin on, yeah

Goin through all the changes I made so many mistakes, oh yes I did
Tryin to leave behind the heartaches
And sometimes I think I was a little bit crazy, oh yeah
Whoa, I keep pushin on

Keep pushin, keep pushin, keep pushin, keep pushin on
Keep pushin, keep pushin, you know you have got to be so strong
Keep pushin, keep pushin, well even if you think your strength is gone
Keep pushin on

(solo)

Well it's comin together I finally feel like a man, oh yes I do
I never thought that I'd be where I am, oh
Everyday I wake a little bit higher
Whoa I keep pushin on, oh yeah
(repeat chorus)

. . .


I've been around for you
I've been up and down for you
But I just can't get any relief
I've swallowed my pride for you
I've lived and lied for you
But you still make me feel like a thief

You got me stealin' your love away
'Cause you never give it
Peeling the years away
And we can't relive it
I make you laugh
And you make me cry
I believe it's time for me to fly

You said we'd work it out
You said that you had no doubt
That deep down we were really in love
Oh, but I'm tired of holding on
To a feeling I know is gone
I do believe that I've had enough

I've had enough of the falseness
Of a worn out relation
Enough of the jealousy
And the intoleration
I make you laugh
And you make me cry
I believe it's time for me to fly

{Refrain} Time for me to fly
Oh, I've got to set myself free
Time for me to fly
And that's just how it's got to be
I know it hurts to say goodbye
But it's time for me to fly

Oh, don't you know it's...
{Refrain}

It's time for me to fly
{Repeat to end}

. . .


You and your baby
Had some words today
Til not another word
Was left to say

I see that grin, boy
Maybe you think you'll win, boy
Until the sun goes down
And once again, boy

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to
Completely break you

They say it's darkest
Right before the dawn
But, oh, those darkest hours
Can be so long

You're feelin' strong, boy
Tellin' yourself she's wrong, boy
But how much longer can
This night go on, boy

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to
Completely break you

One lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to
Completely break you

Ooh, she's such a good find
Have you gone and lost your mind
You should know she's one of a kind

Ooh, she's such a good find
Have you gone and lost your mind
You should know she's one of a kind

Just one lonely night
One lonely night
That's all it takes to
Completely break you

. . .


Please don't hate me mama for what I'm about to do
But the good times we've had together are just about now through
Please don't misunderstand me, I hate to see you cry
But I think that it might look better if I told you now goodbye

I'm back on the road again, it's time I leave you now
And maybe I'll see you next time, that I'm around
Until then I hope your happy baby and good times come your way
I'm back on the road again, I'm on my way

Well I've loved you since the day I met you and I'll love you till the day I die
But we both know the life I'm livin and we both know the reason why
That I've got to leave ya mama and I've got to leave today
But you know that I'll see you next time that I come through your town to play

(chorus) ooh, bye-bye baby

(solo)

(chorus)

Ridin' the storm out, waitin' for the thaw out
On a full moon night in the Rocky Mountain winter.
My wine bottle's low, watching for the snow
I've been thinking lately of what I'm missing in the city.

And I'm not missing a thing
Watchin' the full moon crossing the range
Ridin' the storm out
Ridin' the storm out.

My lady's beside me, she's there to guide me.
She says that alone we've finally found home.
The wind outside is frightening,
but it's kinder than the lightning life in the city.
It's a hard life to live but it gives back what you give.
