Side One


1. Life Is Just What You Make It 3.04

(M. Osmond - A. Osmond)

Baby, I've been thinkin' and I've finally made up my mind.
Baby, I've been lookin' and you know there's one thing that I find.

That life is just what you make it, life is just what you want it to be.
Life, don't think I can take it unless you could spend it with me.

Baby, since I met you, I just can't get you out of my mind.
Lately, if I'm not with you, I feel like I'm wasting my time.

'Cause life is just what you make it, life is just what you want it to be.
Life, don't think I can take it unless you could spend it with me.

Walkin' in the noonday sunshine, together we will pass the time.
Sittin' 'neath the moon just dreamin', with you, girl, just us two girl.
Oh yeah.... oh yeah.....

With you, girl, just us two girl.
I'm no fool, girl.

'Cause life is just what you make it, life is just what you want it to be.
Life, don't think I can take it unless you could spend it with me.
Oh, life is just what you make it, life is just what you want it to be.
Life, don't think I can take it unless you could spend it with me.

2. The Twelfth Of Never 2.43

(P. F. Webster, J. Livingston)

You ask how much I need you, must I explain?
I need you, oh, my darling, like roses need rain.
You ask how long I'll love you, I'll tell you true.
Until the twelfth of never, I'll still be loving you.

Hold me close, never let me go.
Hold me close, melt my heart like April snow.

I'll love you till the bluebells forget to bloom, I'll love you till the clover has lost it's perfume.
I'll love you till the poets run out of rhyme, until the twelfth of never, and that's a long, long time.
Until the twelfth of never, and that's a long long time.
That's a long, long time, that's a long, long time

3. Sunshine Rose 3.04

(N. Sedaka, H. Greenfield)

Hey, I'm a lucky fellow, there's no one like my Sunshine Rose.
I give her lots of lovin' and that's the way my garden grows.
But lately, she's been down, she's been cryin' teardrops all over town.
Come on girl, now's the time to come around.

So smile, smile Sunshine Rose.
So smile, my Sunshine Rose, yeah.
Since you took away the springtime, I've been lonely, heaven knows.
So smile, smile Sunshine Rose, yeah.

I know some jealous people have told you that I've been untrue.
But Rosie, girl, I love you and I would never cheat on you.
Oh, I'm no bumble bee, you're the only blossom that my heart can see.
Come on, girl, and give your honey love to me.

So smile, smile Sunshine Rose.
Smile, my Sunshine Rose.
Of all the flowers in the garden, you're the only one I chose.
So smile, smile Sunshine Rose, yeah.
Oh, of all the flowers in the garden, you're the only one I chose.
So smile, smile Sunshine Rose, yeah, yeah.
So smile, smile Sunshine Rose, smile baby, baby smile sunshine.
Smile, smile Sunshine Rose, yeah, yeah.

4. Do You Want Me? 3.38

(M: Osmond, A. Osmond, W. Osmond)

Oh, darlin', never mind what people say.
We're young, but old enough to know what to do.
Oh, darlin', all I really have to know
is what I feel inside you're feelin' too?

Do you want me, do you need me, do you really care?
Am I in your heart the way that you're in mine?
If you want me, if you need me, then let's fall in love.
And show it's love that counts and not the time.

Oh, honey, I got so much love for you.
This feeling I've never, never felt before.
But darlin', if you don't feel the same way, I'll take just what I can and nothing more.

To love, we both have to give.
It's the only way our love can be.
But I just know that down inside you could love me the way I love you.
Tell me darlin', oh....

Do you want me, do you need me, do you really care?
Am I in your heart the way that you're in mine?
If you want me, if you need me, then let's fall in love.
And show it's love that counts and not the time.

Oh, do you want me, do you need me, do you really care?
Am I in your heart the way that you're in mine?
If you want me, if you need me, then let's fall in love.
And show it's love that counts and not the time.

5. It’s Hard To Say Goodbye 2.53

(A. Osmond)

Don't give a good first impression,
She takes her time with expression.
But, once you get to know her,
It's hard to say goodbye.

People don't crowd to be with her,
They tend to treat her like a sister.
But, know that I got to know her,
It's hard to say goodbye.

People, just like paper money,
Are made the same
But face a diff'rent smile.
I've been around,
But it's funny,
I haven't met a girl like her
In such a long while.

Didn't think that such a smart one
Like her could be such fun.
It's not only nice to know her,
It's hard to say goodbye.

People, just like paper money,
Are made the same
But face a diff'rent smile.
I've been around,
But it's funny,
I haven't met a girl like her
In such a long while.

Oh, I'm gonna see her this evening,
See if I can't find the reason.
Ev'ry time we get together,
It's hard to say goodbye;
Tell me why.
It's hard to say goodbye.

Side Two

1. Young Love 2.35

(C. Joyner, R. Cartey)

They say for every boy and girl there's just one love in this whole world, and I know I've found mine.
The heavenly touch of your embrace tells me no one can take your place ever in my heart.

Young love, first love, filled with deep devotion.
Young love, our love, we share with deep emotion.

Just one kiss from your sweet lips will tell me that our love is real.
And I, I can feel that it's true.
For we will vow to one another there will never be another love for you or for me.

Young love, first love, filled with deep devotion.
Young love, our love, we share with deep emotion.

2. Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)? 2.42

(L. Bricusse, A. Newley)

Who can I turn to when nobody needs me?
My heart wants to know and so I must go where destiny leads me.
With no star to guide me and no one beside me, I go on my way, and after the day, the darkness will hide me.

Oh, and maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after.
I'll throw off my sorrow, beg, steal or borrow my share of laughter.
With you I could learn to.
With you on a new day.
But who can I turn to if you turn away?

I'll throw off my sorrow, beg, steal or borrow my share of laughter.
With you I could learn to.
With you on a new day.
But who can I turn to if you turn away?

3. Other Side Of Me 2.40

(N. Sedaka, H. Greenfield)

You think you know me pretty well, but, how can you tell.
You never get inside my head.
The times we talk
We never speak,
We play hide and seek;
So many things are left unsaid.

Why can't you see
What's on the other side of me,
The side of me
That reaches out to you.
Sweet thoughts and dreams,
Like drops of rain of rippling streams
That wind and bend; rivers with no end,
Flowing on the other side of me.

It seems I always get unstrung,
I trip on my tongue
With words that come out something else.
I'm so afraid the things I say
Might chase you away;
I have to hide behind myself.

Why can't you see
What's on the other side of me,
The side of me
That reaches out to you.

Don't let me hide
These feelings that have been denied,
Only you can set me free;
See what's on the other side of me.
Why can't you see
What's on the other side of me,
The side of me
That reaches out to you.

Don't let me hide
These feelings that have been denied,
Only you can set me free;
See what's on the other side of me.
Why can't you see
What's on the other side of me,
The side of me
That reaches out to you.

4. Tears On My Pillow 2.47

(A. Osmond)

The tears on my pillow and dreams in my eyes, from so many heartaches, too
many goodbyes.
They're yesterday feelings, places to forget.
And love that I've given I try not to regret.

Oh, love, love, why did you let me down, down?
Can't get much lower.
I need someone around to love.
Oh, love, love, I'm all alone again, I'm starting all over.
Give me someone who needs my love.

Oh somebody help me, and show me the way to mend what's been broken, to face
a new day.
Give me someone to lean on, and help carry too.
Somebody to live for, someone just like you.

Oh, love, love, why did you let me down, down?
Can't get much lower.
I need someone around to love.
Oh, love, love, I'm all alone again, I'm starting all over.
Give me someone who needs my love.
Oh, love, love why did you let me down.

5. It Takes A Lot Of Love 2.32

Susan, whenever I need you, girl you know where to be found.
Losin', I don't want to lose you 'cause I need someone around.
It takes alot, alot to make me happy.
It takes alot, it takes alot of love.
It takes alot, alot to make me happy inside.
It takes alot, and you got my kind of love.

Baby, I got so much love that I could give to you.
Maybe if you know just how I feel you'll love me too.

I want your love, I need your love, my life is nothing, girl, without you.
I'm on my knees, so won't you please give me your love and make me better?

'Cause it, it takes alot, alot to make me happy.
It takes alot, it takes alot of love, oh yeah.
It takes alot, alot to make me happy inside.
It takes alot and you got my kind of love.
