Side One

1. I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

Did you hear that
lonesome whippoorwill?
He sounds too blue to fly.
The midnight train is whining low,
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

I've never seen a night so long,
when time goes crawling by.
The moon just went behind a cloud
to hide his face and cry.

Did you ever see a robin weep
when leaves began to die?
That means he's lost the will to live,
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

The silence of a falling star
lights up the purple sky.
And as I wonder where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

I'm so lonesome I could cry.

2. What's He Doing In My World

What's he doing in my world?
What's he doing, holding my world?
If he's not more than a friend,
then why were you kissing him?
What's he doing in my world?

What's he doing in my world?
Did you tell him you're my girl?
If your love is really true,
tell him our world's made for two.
What's he doing in my world?

Oh don't let me keep on wondering
just what you're gonna do,
wondering if the one I love
loves somebody new.

What's he doing in my world?
We don't need him in our world.
So if it's true he's just a friend,
explain those kisses you gave him.
What's he doing in my world?

What's he doing in my world?
We don't need him in our world.
So if it's true he's just a friend,
explain those kisses you gave him.
What's he doing in my world?

3. If Someone Ever Breaks
Your Heart

If someone ever breaks my heart
it will be you, no one but you.
No one else could ever take my heart,
no one else but you can break my heart.

If someone tears my world apart,
it will be you, no one but you.
My whole world revolves about your love,
I could never live without your love.

There's no way that you
could care the way I do,
just love me half as much,
as much as I love you.
And I'll be satisfied,
if you'd just try
to love me half as much,
to love me half as much.

If someone ever breaks my heart,
it will be you, no one but you.
No one else could ever take my heart,
no one else but you could break my heart.

La la la la la la la......

My whole world revolves about your love,
I could never live without your love.

If someone ever breaks my heart,
it will be you, no one but you.
No one else could ever take my heart,
no one else but you could break my heart.

La la la la la la la....

4. Sixteen Candles

Sixteen candles
Make a lovely sight
But not as bright
As your eyes tonight

Blow out the candles
Make my wish come true
For I’ll be wishing
That you’ll love me too

Though you’re sixteen
You’re still my teenage queen
You’re the prettiest, loveliest
Girl I’ve ever seen

Sixteen candles
In my heart you’ll glow
Forever and ever
For I love you so

Sixteen candles
In my heart you’ll glow
Forever and ever
For I love you so
For I love you so

5. Where Did All The Good Times Go

It's time to leave you,
cause I've got nothing more to give.
I've got to begin to live,
we've been lonely together too long.
Oh, it's hard to leave you,
but it's very much harder to stay.
The good times are gone,
but the memories of you linger on.

Where did all the good times go?
Where did all the good times go?
Where did all the good times go?
They've gone so far away.

This time tomorrow,
I'll be learning to live on my own.
I think you and I have known
we've been lonely together too long.
Oh, it's hard to leave you,
but it's very much harder to stay.
The good times are gone,
but the memories of you linger on.

Where did all the good times go?
Where did all the good times go?
Where did all the good times go?
They've gone so far away.

Oh, baby
Where did all the good times go?
Where did all the good times go?
Where did all the good times go?
They've gone so far away.

Side Two

1. Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa,
men have named you,
you're so like the lady
with the mystic smile.
Is it only 'cause you're
lonely they have blamed you
for that Mona Lisa
strangeness in your smile

Do you smile to
tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way
to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been
brought to your doorstep,
they just lie there and they die there.
Are you warm,
are you real, Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and
lonely lovely work of art

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa,

2. This Time

This time we're really breaking up,
this time we said way too much.
This time's for all time.
How about this time?

This time there'll
be no goodnight kiss,
this time's forever.
This time, I find that
I'm really losing you.

My heart is broken now,
it really doesn't matter anyhow.
Now that you've gone away,
I only live from day to day.

This time there'll be
no goodnight kiss,
this time's forever.
This time I find that
I'm really losing you.

My heart is broken now,
it really doesn't matter anyhow.
Now that you've gone away,
I only live from day to day.

This time, we're really breaking up,
this time we said way too much.
This time I find that I'm really losing you.

This time there'll
be no goodnight kiss,
this time's forever.
This time I find that
I'm really losing you.

3. I'm Dyin'

I've never been so all alone.
Darkness never touched my day.
Never once I looked for love
the only reason is because
It always came my way.

I never had to get down on my knees.
I can't remember once I cried.
But now someone without warning
is making darkness of the morning
and it's tearing me up inside.

Can't you see that I'm dyin'?
Tell the doctor it's a broken heart.
The only one who can make it start
is killing me, killing me
'cause I know I can't have her.
Yet I gotta keep tryin'
I know there's gotta be a way.
Until I know she's here to stay,
it's killing me, killing me
'cause I know that I love her.

Nothing matters anymore.
My only want has been denied.
Now I'm left here all alone
without someone of my own,
and it's tearin' me up inside.

Can't you see that I'm dyin'?
Tell the doctor it's a broken heart.
The only one who can make it start
is killing me, killing me
'cause I know I can't have her.
Yet I gotta keep tryin'
I know there's gotta be a way.
Until I know she's here to stay
It's killing me, killing me
'cause I know that I love her.

4. Ours

Ours, a love that's
yours and mine.
Until the end of time,
always on my mind.

Oh, at times,
the feeling that we share,
I know the way you care,
ours is always there.

Just let it be always
together you and me.
Throughout the land,
walking together hand in hand,
we understand that...

Ours, ours will long endure.
Ours belongs for sure.
Ours forever more.

Throughout the land,
walking together hand in hand,
we understand that...

Ours, ours will long endure.
Ours belongs for sure.
Ours forever more,
ours forever more.

Ours forever more.

5. I Have A Dream

I have a dream that someday
we'll all walk hand in hand.
I have a dream that someday,
this is gonna be a better land.
Well maybe you can't see my meaning,
and you can't see my dreaming,
but I'm sure someday you'll understand
it'll all be better if we get it together
and dream, mmm, dream.

I have a dream that someday
we'll all walk hand in hand.
I have a dream that someday
this is gonna be a better land.
Well maybe you can't see my meaning,
and you can't see my dreaming,
but I'm sure someday you'll understand
it'll all be better if we get it together
and dream, dream, dream.

Oh how sweet the words
love and peace sound to our ears!
For the one thing wrong, my friends,
too many say these words,
not enough are sincere.
And all the words of freedom, liberty,
stand out in my soul and my mind.
Tears come to my eyes and I realize
oh, it's just a crime, woah, oh oh...

I have a dream that someday
we'll all walk hand in hand.
I have a dream that someday
this is gonna be a better land.
Well maybe you can't see my meaning,
and you can't see my dreaming,
but I'm sure someday you'll understand.
It'll all be better
if we get it together and dream.
It'll all be better
if we get it together and dream.
