Side One

1. I'm Still Gonna Need You

Girl, you say you wanna leave me, you wanna go your merry way.
You no longer want the love we used to share why do you treat me this way?

I'm still gonna need you forever more.
I'm still gonna need you forever more.

How well I'm gonna remember that cold and dreadful night, when you told me that
you love me girl and walked right out of my life.
Oh where, oh where did I go wrong? Somebody let me know.
I love you more than life itself, oh, how could I let you go?

I'm still gonna need you forever more. I'm still gonna need you forever more.

You know you’re so much sweeter than
Any love I have ever known
How can you describe the feeling
You know it’s all so strong
I can’t express this loneliness
I feel when I think of you
And all the good and bad times, baby
That we have ever been through

I'm still gonna need you forever more. I'm still gonna need you forever more.
I'm still gonna need you forever more. I'm still gonna need you forever more.

So many times I've thought about you and yesterday.
The things we did, the hopes we had, the friends we used to make.
There is cool inflection that we didn't unsay.
But they're gone, gone, gone, gone, I hope that it's not to stay.

I'm still gonna need you forever more. I'm still gonna need you forever more.
I'm still gonna need you forever more. I'm still gonna need you forever more.

2. Where Would I Be Without You

Once I was a king in a land of broken dreams.
My life had no meaning, but then you held out your hand and gave this lonely man
a reason to start living again.

Oh, you led me to a place where now I'm shining.
Clouds that I knew took on a silver lining.
You came into my life just when I needed love.

So darlin', call me and I'll come a-runnin',
no matter what you're going through.
'Cause where would I ever be without you?
Darlin' call me and I'll come a-runnin',
I'll be there just to see you through.
'Cause where would I ever be without you?

I used to exist on the street of loneliness,
till I found your love I was there.
Then you came along, turned darkness to dawn,
now you are my reason to care.

Oh, you gave me life and helped me find a way.
Out of my night you made a brand new day.
Now I can't a way of ever thanking you.

So darlin', call me and I'll come a-runnin',
no matter what you're going through.
'Cause where would I ever be without you?
'Darlin, call me and I'll come a-runnin',
I'll be there just to see you through.
'Cause where would I ever be without you?

3. Kind Of A Woman That A Man Wants

Hey girl, come hold me tenderly.
I wanna let you know, oh let you know, just what you mean to me.
My girl, that's how I'd like to think of you.
You'll never know, no you'll never know, all the love I have for you.

You're the kind of a woman that a man wants.
You're the kind of a girl that I need.
You're the kind of a woman that a man wants,
and I need you, need you with me.
You're the kind of a woman that a man wants,
you're the kind of a girl that I need.
You're the kind of a woman that a man wants,
and I need you.

Hey girl, my words sometimes get in the way.
So I wanna show how I really know what's behind the words I say.
My love, there is nothing without you.
You're everything that could ever be, but what I'm getting to....

Is you're the kind of a woman that a man wants.
You're the kind of a girl that I need.
You're the kind of a woman that a man wants,
and I need you, need you with me.
You're the kind of a woman that a man wants.
You're the kind of a girl that I need.
You're the kind of a woman that a man wants,
and I need you.

Oh, you're the kind of a woman that a man wants.
You're the kind of a girl that I need.
You're the kind of a woman that a man wants,
and I need you, need you with me.

4. Thank You

Ever wish upon a star and have the dream come true?
That's the way it was with me the day that I met you.
We fell in love, how could we see
that there would come the day
a greater love would take my place, and leave me but to say..

I thank you for your love,
thank you, that's all that I can say.
As for me, it's hard to just become a memory of our love.
Thank you for your touch.
Thank you for when you needed me.
Please just go, and leave with my love,
the only love I know. Our love.

Seasons come, and seasons go,
the night must turn to day.
It would be so, so wrong of me to try to make you stay.
All I gave you was my best,
my tears are all I hide.
There's just one thing that I must say,
before I step aside.

I thank you for your love,
thank you, that's all that I can say.
As for me, it's hard to just become a memory of our love.
Thank you for your touch.
Thank you for when you needed me.
Please just go, and leave me with my love,
the only love I know. Our love.

5. Someone To Go Home To

Walking along a crowded street,
hoping a friendly face I'll meet.
Why are the people passing by in a hurry?
Nobody seems to notice me,
that ain't the way it's meant to be.
I could be falling on my face, and who would worry?
You'd think the world is made of stone.
I'd never face it on my own. Thank God there's...

Someone to go home to, when the day just shoots you down.
Someone who believes you, who would never never kick your heart,
yeah, yeah, yeah.

Never get time to catch my breath,
everything's always life or death.
Nobody has the time to waste on a conversation.
I could be deaf and dumb and blind, no one would pay me any mind.
This is a back against wall situation.
You bet the sun forgot to shine.
But if a place is doing fine, thank God there's...

Someone to go home to, when the day just shoots you down.
Someone who believes you, who would never never kick your heart,
yeah, yeah, yeah.

Someone to go home to, when you haven't even seen one smile.
Someone who will hold you and kiss you awhile.

Side Two

1. Take Love If Ever You Find Love

Life without loving is no life at all.
When there's no one to help you up whenever you fall.
The day's never ending with nothing to share.
And the house is so empty, you're the only one there.

So take love if ever you find love.
It comes along for everyone someday.
So take love if ever you find love and I found love, girl, when I found you.

Chances are many in all that you do.
So beware of a false love if you want one that's true.
And maybe tomorrow will bring love your way, and do what you can, make sure
love's there to stay.

So take love if ever you find love.
It comes along for everyone someday.
So take love if ever you find love, and I found love, girl, when I found you.

So take love if ever you find love.
It comes along for everyone someday.

So take love if ever you find love, and I found love, girl, when I found you.

2. The Proud One

Living is dying, 'cause love, you've left me crying.
Now there's no use trying to go on.
Each night I dream, baby, pretending, there'll be a happy ending.
Burning down deep inside, got a heartbreak that I can't hide.

I'm not the proud one, I need you, I'm begging to you, baby, please.
You're the proud one, believe me, this poor man is down on his knees, baby
please.

Oh baby, remember the love we shared so tender?
Hoping that forever you'll be mine.
I wish you could hear me, oh baby. If only you were near me.
I didn't know what I had, don't you know that I feel so bad?

I'm not the proud one, I need you, I'm begging to you, baby, please.
You're the proud one, believe me, this poor man is down on his knees.
I'm not the proud one, I need you, I'm begging to you, baby, please.
You're the proud one, believe me, this poor man is down on his knees.
I'm not the proud one, I need you, I'm begging to you, baby, please.
You're the proud one, believe me, this poor man is down on his knees.

3. Frightened Eyes

Frightened eyes, don't look away again.
Frightened eyes, I'm in love with you.
Realize love is a caring thing.
Let me take care of you.

Frightened eyes, don't look away again.
Frightened eyes, I'm in love with you.
Realize love is a caring thing.
Let me take care of you.

Maybe you've been on the losing end, girl.
Maybe you've taken that one way ride.
Maybe now when you need a friend, girl, I'll be on your side.
Lady don't you hide your....

Frightened eyes, don't look away again.
Frightened eyes, I'm in love with you.
Realize love is a caring thing.
Let me take care of you.

Please understand what they put you through, girl.
Please understand that it's all a lie.
Please believe in a love that's true, girl.
Love can make you fly. Lady, don't you hide your....

Frightened eyes, don't look away again.
Frightened eyes, I'm in love with you.
Realize love is a caring thing.
Let me take care of you.

Frightened eyes, don't look away again.
Frightened eyes, I'm in love with you.

4. The Last Day Is Coming

Where is the sun that gave me light each day?
How long has it been since clouds got in my way?
I tell myself my love is still the same.
Yet on my face, I feel it's starting to wane.

For the last day is coming, and I don't know why every song that I'm singing
makes me cry.
So I reach for tomorrow, as I dream away the day.
Still the love that I've given flies away.

So what should I do?
There is no place to go.
To find the sun, the only warmth I know.
I ask myself, is there nothing left for me?
Is there a chance that tomorrow it will be?

For the last day is coming and I don't know why every song that I'm singing
makes me cry.
So I reach for tomorrow as I dream away the day.
Still the love that I've given flies away.

5. Where Are You Going To, My Love?

I hold your hand, and gently touch your hair.
Then we'll walk together hand in hand the way it used to be.
The way you smile, and kiss me tenderly.
Tears begin to fill my misty eyes, now you're gone from me.

Where are you going to, my love?
Will you come back when the sun shines?
Any time you want to come home, it's alright.
Where are you going to, my love?
Will our love return tomorrow?
Any day you want to call me, it's alright.

I hear your voice, it's always haunting me.
Everywhere I turn, I see your face, but you're never there.
You're all I have, you're all I'm living for.
I can't bear the pain or misery, please come back to me.

Where are you going to, my love?
Will you come back when the sun shines?
Any time you want to come home it's alright.
Where are you going to, my love?
Will our love return tomorrow?
Any day you want to call me it's alright.
