Side One
1. This Is The Way That I Feel

This is the way that I feel,
when I'm with you, baby.
This is the way that I feel,
when I'm with you, baby.
Oh, but I love you, yeah baby,
I love you.

Listen, baby.
When I'm just barely survivin',
oh, you make me
feel so important.
And you mean so much to me,
that I never want to leave your side.

Oh, this is the way that I feel,
when I'm with you, baby.
This is the way that I feel,
when I'm with you, baby.
Oh, but I love you, yeah baby,
I love you.

I know some of my
friends try to tell you
that you oughta put me down.
And start dating
some other girls, yeah,
whenever I'm not around.
And I feel so good
till I hear someone say
you're not right for me.
But when I'm with you, baby,
I'm right where I want to be, yeah

This is the way that I feel,
when I'm with you, baby.
Oh, this is the way that I feel,
when I'm with you, baby.
Oh, but I love you, yeah baby,
I love you.

My heart beats like
a thousand drums
when I reach out to
hold you in my arms.
It feels like I'm floating
on a cloud,
every time you speak
my name out loud.

This is the way that I feel,
when I'm with you, baby.
This is the way that I feel,
when I'm with you, baby.

2. Play The Music Loud

I know I gotta learn
to live without you.
I know I’ve gotta stop
thinkin' about you.
When I realized your
love had left me,
I knew loneliness
was out to get me.

Turning to the music
as a hideaway,
trying to lose
myself within a song.

Play the music loud,
don't wanna think about my sorrow.
Play the music loud,
and help me reach for tomorrow.
Drown my tears away with
all the music that you play,
Mr. DJ play the music loud.

I know you tell me
it takes time to forget him.
I know he'll ruin
my life if I let him.
When I am all alone
and I start cryin',
I know my broken
heart is slowly dyin'.
Turning to the music
as a hideaway,
trying to lose myself
within a song.

Play the music loud,
don't wanna think about my sorrow.
Play the music loud,
and help me reach for tomorrow.
Drown my tears away with
all the music that you play,
Mr. DJ play the music loud.

3. Didn't I Love You, Boy

I thought that it might help
to try and kid myself
and believe this time you'd stay.
Oh, but now I know,
that it's time for you to go.
Guess I knew it
would end one day.

But didn't I love you, boy
Oh I loved you so. Oh
Oh, didn't I though

You don't have to worry now,
'cause I'll get by somehow.
Really, I'll be alright.
And though it might
take a year or two
for me to get over you.
And maybe I'll
cry some tonight.

But didn't I love you, boy
Oh I loved you so. Oh
Oh, didn't I though

You don't have to
Change your mind
'bout leaving me behind.
I know it's just your way.
But if I hope real hard,
and wish on every star,
maybe you'll come back someday.

And if you have a quiet time,
please let me cross your mind
every once in awhile.
'Cause I'll be thinking of you,
and all we used to do.
And I'll remember with a smile.

Just how much I loved you, boy.
Oh, why did you have to go
Didn't I, though

Oh didn't I love you boy
Oh enough to let you go
Oh I loved you so.

4. Please Tell Him That I Said Hello

Hi, hello, how are you
I haven't been here, well
it must be years.
The place is not the same somehow,
there's a jukebox playing loudly now,
that wasn't here then.

And tell me, by the way,
does he still look just the same
And does he still remember me
And if you see him, won't you

Please tell him that I said hello,
and that everything
has turned out fine.
Give him my love
and wish him well.
Don't let him know
you saw me crying.
Tell him I won't be back again,
it was chance that
made me pass this way.
Just say I came in for awhile
and lived again our yesterdays.

Well, so long, I'll see you.
You know, the world
gets smaller every day.
And now I must be leaving
and so the next time that you see him

Please tell him that I said hello,
and that everything
has turned out fine.
Give him my love
and wish him well.
Don't let him know
you saw me crying.
Tell him I won't be back again,
it was chance that made
me pass this way.
Just say I came in for awhile
and lived again our yesterdays.

Please tell him that I said hello,
and that everything
has turned out fine.

5. Miss You Nights

I've had many times
I can tell you
when more than anything
I needed company.
And children saw me cry
I thought I’d had my
share of that.
But these miss you nights,
oh, they're so lonely.

Midnight diamonds in the heavens
only know how much
I miss your sweet embrace.
And the warm winds that caress me
just as surely kissed your face.
Yeah, these miss you nights,
they're so lonely.

How I miss you,
no, words could ever tell.
And these lonely nights
bring emptiness I know so well.
All my secrets are
just wasted memories.
You're gone from me.

Thinking of your going
how could you cut the threads
and leave me here behind
Looking windward
for my comfort
I'll take each day as it arrives.
But these miss you nights,
oh, are so lonely.

Forget our thoughts of love
we shared so tender.
It's gone, I know it's gone this time.
Forget our dreams and
things we once remembered.
It's just the same this
miss you pain

You know, thinking of your going,
how could you cut the threads
and just leave me here behind
Oh I keep hoping for some comfort
I'll take each day as it arrives.

Oh, but these miss
you nights, are so lonely.

Side Two

1. Where Did Our Love Go

Baby, baby,
baby don't leave me
Ooh, please don't leave me,
all by myself
I've got this burning, yearning
burning feelin' inside me
Ooh, deep inside me
And it hurts so bad

You came into my
heart so tenderly
With a burning love
That stings like a bee
Now that I'm in love,
so hopelessly
You don't want me
you wanna leave me

Ooh, baby, baby,
where did our love go
Ooh, don't you want me,
don't you want me no more

Ooh, baby, baby,
where did our love go
And all your promises,
of love forever more

I've got this burning, yearning,
burning feelin' inside me
Ooh, deep inside me,
and it hurts so bad
Before you won my heart,
you were a perfect guy
But now that I love you,
you wanna leave me behind

Baby, baby,
baby don't leave me
Ooh, please don't leave me,
all by myself

Ooh, baby, baby,
where did our love go
Ooh, don't you want me,
don't you want me no more

2. Cry Baby Cry

Livin' alone, you know
I spend all my lifetime
livin' alone with
no one else to care.
Now I'm in love,
it comes but once in a lifetime.
I love you so,
but you don't seem to care.

Is our love a yesterday
Or is this a game we play
You leave me alone just like before
and all you have to say is

Cry, baby, cry.
Only tears can mend your heart.
Cry, baby, cry.
It's best that we both part.

Love was never meant
to bring you sorrow,
if it happens, one way
you can reach tomorrow
Cry, baby, cry
and tears will mend your heart.

How many times I thought
my young heart would fail me.
How I cried until
the tears weren't there.
I met a new guy, who said
he'd give his life to me.
He was in love but
I just couldn't care.

Our love was yesterday,
there is no game to play.
I know it hurts,
'cause I've been there,
And all I have to say is.

Cry, baby, cry.
Only tears can mend your heart.
Cry, baby, cry.
It's best that we both part.
Love was never meant
to bring you sorrow,
if it happens, one way
you can reach tomorrow
Cry, baby, cry and
tears will mend your heart.

Cry, baby, cry.

3. You're My Superman (You're My Everything)

You're my superman,
 in my master plan.
You're the melody
in my symphony.
You're my rock and roll,
you're my heart and soul.
You're my everything.

You're my morning light,
after a rainy night.
You're the blue in the sky
when the storm rolls by.
You're my right when I'm wrong,
you're my strength when I'm strong,
you're my everything.

Oh, gonna tell the world
how much I need you
Gonna say it each time
that I see you,
I've finally found
what I'm searching for.
I wanna whisper whenever
you're with me,
I gotta shout it out
when you kiss me.

You're the magic man
in the dreams I plan.
You're the good time theme
in the songs I sing.
You're the shining star
where my wishes are,
you're my everything, yeah.

Oh, gonna tell the world
how much I need you
Gonna say it each
time that I see you,
I've finally found
what I'm searching for.

I wanna whisper whenever
you're with me,
I’ve gotta shout it out
when you kiss me.

You're my superman,
in my master plan.
You're the melody

You're my rock and roll,
you're my heart and soul.
You're my everything.

You're the magic man
in the dreams I plan.
You're the good time theme
in the songs I sing.
You're the shining star
where my wishes are,
you're my everything.
You're my superman.

4. All He Did Was Tell Me Lies

All he did was tell me lies
to try to woo me.
If sweet talk was a game,
he could win a prize.
He never meant to stay,
how could he do it to me
And everybody thinks
I was a fool
to listen to his run around lies.

He thought he was a
big shot with the ladies.
I put him down
and it took him by surprise.
Now who would have
thought that a girl like me
could fall in love so easily
Now everybody says
he's just a no good,
at least everybody but me.

All he did was tell me lies
to try to woo me.
If sweet talk was a game,
he could win a prize.
He never meant to stay,
how could he do it to me
And everybody thinks I was a fool
to listen to his run around lies.

Now the king of love
has won the final inning.
Oh he made his move,
and he played his game so well.
But later on, will he think of me
when his castle walls get cold
Will he care to call
Will he care at all

All he did was tell me lies
to try to woo me.
If sweet talk was a game,
he could win a prize.
He never meant to stay,
how could he do it to me
Now everybody says
he's just a no good,
at least everybody but me.

5.Run To Me

If ever you’ve got
rain in your heart,
someone has hurt you,
and torn you apart,
am I unwise to open
up your eyes to love me

And let it be like
they said it would be
me loving you boy,
and you loving me.
Am I unwise to open
up your eyes to love me

Run to me whenever
you're lonely. (to love me)
Run to me
if you need a shoulder
Now and then,
if her love grows colder,
oh darling, you run to me.

And when you're
out in the cold,
no one beside you,
and no one to hold,
am I unwise to open
up your eyes to love me

And when you've
got nothing to lose,
nothing to pay for,
and nothing to choose,
am I unwise to open
up your eyes to love me

Run to me whenever
you're lonely. (to love me)
Run to me if
you need a shoulder
Now and then if
her love grows colder,
oh darling, you run to me.
