Side 1

1. She's Ready For Someone To Love Her

Her heart has had more knocks
than a gypsy's tambourine,
yet it's worth more gold
than any rich man's ever seen.
And though no one has fallen for her
like she's fallen for them,
she says her heart isn't broken,
it's only broken in.

She's ready for someone to love her,
someone to hold her tight.
Someone to curl up next to
when her feet get cold at night.
She's weathered the
whirlwind romance,
stood through the one night stand,
she's ready for someone to love her,
who'll be the lucky man

Well she has had her fill
of those unfulfilling men.
You know, the kind who come calling
never to call back again.
Though she's bound and determined
not to be fooled anymore,
she'll keep that promise,
same way she's kept it before.

She's ready for someone to love her,
someone to hold her tight.
someone to curl up next to
when her feet get cold at night.
She's weathered the
whirlwind romance,
stood through the one night stand,
she's ready for someone to love her,
who'll be the lucky man

She's ready for someone to love her,
someone to hold her tight.
someone to curl up next to
when her feet get cold at night.
She's weathered the
whirlwind romance,
stood through the one night stand,
she's ready for someone to love her,
who'll be the lucky man

She's ready for someone to love her,
who'll be the lucky man

She's ready for someone to love her.

2. Come Back To Me

I tried to go to sleep last night,
but my eyes wouldn't close.
I stared at the candlelight,
wondered why you had to go.
I tried to get you off my mind,
but you linger like a cloud.
Feeling sorry for myself,
crying out loud.

Baby, baby come back to me,
I'll be anything you want me to be.
Turn around, take a look at me,
I'll be right here.
Baby, baby, come back to me,
say the words that’ll set me free.
I'll give you love for eternity.
Baby, baby, come back to me.

Ain't no use to try and hide
the feeling in my heart.
All I want is a second chance,
baby, tell me where to start.
Holding on to memories
just isn't good enough.
It can be just like it used to be,
when we were in love.

Baby, baby, come back to me,
I'll be anything you want me to be.
Turn around, take a look at me,
I'll be right here.
Baby, baby, come back to me,
say the words that’ll set me free.
I'll give you love for eternity.
Baby, baby, come back to me.

Baby, baby, come back to me,
I'll be anything you want me to be.
Turn around, take a look at me,
I'll be right here.
Baby, baby, come back to me,
say the words that’ll set me free.
I'll give you love for eternity.
Baby, baby, come back to me.

3. What Do The Lonely Do

What do the lonely do,
how do they ever make it through
Somebody better tell me,
'cause I can tell I'm losing you.
What do the lonely do,
how do they ever make it through
Looks like I'll be lonely too,
so what do the lonely do

Now do they go to parties,
pretend to have a good time
Are they the ones who leave early
so no one sees them crying
Or do they go for long walks
underneath the moonlight,
wishing they had someone,
someone to hold them tight

What do the lonely do,
how do they ever make it through
Looks like I'll be lonely too,
so what do the lonely do

Are they always watching
when other lovers pass ‘em by
And are they always hoping
they're gonna get another try
or do they just remember,
and dream of yesterday,
of the one who left them lonely,
the one who got away

What do the lonely do,
how do they ever make it through
Somebody better tell me,
'cause I can tell I'm losing you.
What do the lonely do,
how do they ever make it through
Looks like I'll be lonely too,
so what do the lonely do

4. One Way Rider

Now you're off and running,
run just like your scared,
run just like a prairie dog,
run just like a deer.
Something in the bushes
staring out at you,
staring at your feelings,
feeling like you do.

One way rider,
one way down the road.
Oh baby, I'm right beside you,
everywhere you go.

Pounce upon a victim,
circumstances do tend
to take a hold on
everything you do.
First we follow leaders,
next we follow fools,
now we follow footsteps
sneaking up on you.

One way rider,
one way down the road.
Oh, baby, I' right beside you,
everywhere you go.

Lovers, save your secrets,
trust not unto fools.
Don't go look for trouble,
it will come for you.
Like some long lost passes,
flying broken lines.
Here one fleeting moment,
really gone this time.

One way rider,
one way down the road.
Oh, baby, I'm right beside you,
everywhere you go.

Oh baby, I'm one way rider,
one way down the road.
Oh baby, I'm right beside you,
everywhere you go.

5. If Every Man Had A Woman Like You

I don't need a pin up poster
girl to turn me on,
all I have to do
is look into your eyes.
All the passion that I'll ever need
I find in your arms,
each and every night.

If every man had a woman like you,
there'd be no cheatin' goin' on.
If everyone could love
the way we do, then love would
last a lifetime long.
And if they could feel
the way you make me feel inside,
there'd be no more runnin' 'round,
they'd all stay home at night.
Baby, it's true, if every man
had a woman like you.

Every man has got a fantasy
baby your mine
and sometimes when
your sound asleep,
I get caught up in a feeling
that comes from deep inside
knowing you belong to me.

If every man had a woman like you,
Oh darlin’ there'd be
no cheatin' goin' on.
If everyone could love the way we do,
then love would last a lifetime long.
And if they could feel
the way you make me feel inside,
there'd be no more runnin' 'round,
they'd all stay home at night.
Baby, it's true, if every man
had a woman like you.

If every man had a woman like you,
oh, darlin', there'd be
no cheatin' goin' on.
If everyone could love the way we do,
then love would last a lifetime long.
And if they could feel
the way you make me feel inside,
there'd be no more runnin' 'round,
they'd all stay home at night.
Baby, it's true, if every man
had a woman like you.

Side 2

1. We Work Hard (To Make Love Easy)

All my friends are jealous,
'cause you're still lovin' me,
but keeping love alive
hasn't been easy.
Our folks tried to tell us
a long, long time ago,
that love takes time and
tender care to grow.

We work hard to make love easy,
we practice every day
to get love right.
We work hard to make love easy,
and we're gonna work a little
harder on love tonight.

Sometimes when I'm angry,
I take it out on you.
And you smile and forgive me
because you want to.
Your touch helps me remember
a lesson that we've learned.
You've gotta give love
to get love in return.

Oh we work hard to make love easy,
we practice every day
to get love right.
We work hard to make love easy,
and we're gonna work a little
harder on love tonight.

Well we've suffered through
our share of heartaches
all along the way.
But each one made us stronger,
and now I'm proud to say

We work hard to make love easy
(make things easy now),
we practice every day
to get love right.
We work hard to make love easy
(oh make things easy),
and we're gonna work a
little harder on love tonight,

we're gonna work a little
harder on love tonight.

Oh we work hard to make love easy
(oh make things easy now),
we practice every day
to get love right.
We work hard to make love easy
(so much better now),
and we're gonna work a
little harder on love tonight.

2. She Danced Her Way Into My Heart

If I'd have left a minute sooner,
I might have never seen her.
Guess it must have been
my lucky night.
'Cause as I turned around to go,
I caught her dancing slow,
like a ballerina in the night.
I could hardly believe my eyes,
she had me hypnotized.

And she danced her
way into my heart.
She had me made
right from the start.
She swirled and swayed,
and danced her way into my heart.

A yearbook full of names and faces,
pressed carnation in the pages,
dedicated to the one I love.
And when I have my arms
around her,
I remember how I found her,
somehow I knew
I'd never give her up.
I could hardly believe my eyes,
she had me hypnotized.

And she danced her
way into my heart.
She had me made
right from the start.
She swirled and swayed,
and danced her way into my heart.

Danced her way into my heart.
She had me made right from the start.

3. Where Does An Angel Go When She Cries

I knew it the minute I hurt her.
And I knew right away
I was wrong.
Before I had told her,
 before I could hold her,
with a tear and a turn
she was gone.

So where does an angel
go when she cries
And where do the teardrops fall
If I could find her
then I'd apologize,
but where does an angel
go when she cries

I called every friend
I could think of,
and I looked everywhere
she might be.
If I lose that lady,
I know I'll go crazy.
'Cause I need my angel with me.

And where does an angel
go when she cries
And where do the teardrops fall
If I could find her,
then I'd apologize.
But where does an angel
go when she cries

If I could find her,
then I'd apologize.
But where does an
angel go when she cries

 

4. She's Back In Town Again

I was doing alright,
Gettin’ over the heartache.
I had learned how to smile,
and make the best
I could make of it.
But when I saw her last night,
it started all over.
That old loving feeling,
driving me crazy.

She's back in town again,
spinnin' me 'round again.
Taking me way back when
we were going strong.
And I know I can't let go,
I guess I still love her so.
If I give in I know,
I'd turn around and she'll be gone.

Must be an old flame of love
still burning deep down
inside of me.
No matter how hard I try,
I can't run from her memory.
And when I looked in her eyes,
it started all over.
That old loving feeling,
driving me crazy.

She's back in town again,
spinnin' me 'round again.
Taking me way back when
we were going strong.
And I know I can't let go,
I guess I still love her so.
And if I give in I know,
I'd turn around and she'll be gone.

If I give in I know,
I'd turn around and she'll be gone.
She's back in town again.

5. You Be The Judge

Well I've been accused of
breaking hearts, they say
that I'm no good.
But don't go trusting
everything you hear.
Honey, we don't need no witnesses,
just let me testify.
And I'll make the evidence
come crystal clear.

You be the judge,
honey we don't need no jury.
We can handle this alone,
I'll show you my side of the story.
Don't turn me loose
when I get through,
just sentence me to love with you.
You be the judge,
you be the judge.

Well if wanting you is a crime,
I guess I'm guilty to the bone.
And I can't go straight
no matter how I try.
You turn me up the river, girl,
'cause you decide my fate.
But loving you is
a charge I won't deny.

You be the judge,
honey we don't need no jury.
We can handle this alone,
I'll show you my side of the story.
Don't turn me loose
when I get through,
just sentence me to love with you.
You be the judge,
you be the judge,

You be the judge,
honey we don't need no jury.
We can handle this alone,
I'll show you my side of the story.
You be the judge.
