You Can Do Magic
I never believed in things that I couldn't see
I said if I can't feel it then how can it be
No, no magic could happen to me
And then I saw you

I couldn't believe it, you took my heart
I couldn't retrieve it, said to myself
What's it all about
Now I know there can be no doubt

You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
You're the one who can put out the fire

You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo ...

And when the rain is beatin' upon the window pane
And when the night it gets so cold, when I can't sleep
Again you come to me
I hold you tight, the rain disappears
Who would believe it
With a word you dry my tears

You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
You're the one who can put out the fire

You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo ...

And If I wanted to
I could never be free
I never believed it was true
But now it's so clear to me

You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
You're the one who can put out the fire

You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo ...

You're the one who can put out the fire
You're the one who can put out the fire
You're the one who can put out the fire ...back to top
Never Be Lonely
Got you by my side
I'll never be lonely
Got you by my side
I'll never be afraid
Never be lonely anymore
Turn away the fools from my door
Always wanna be your one and only
Never be lonely

Spent a lot of time
Waitin' to find you
Spent a lot of time
All on my own
Could've gone a thousand different ways
Watching my nights turn to days
Always wanna be your one and only
Never be lonely

Here in the middle of now or never
Finally found where I belong
I could go on like this forever
Looking at you, looking at you

Wasn't I the one
Love never came to
Wasn't I the one
So misunderstood
All because my heart wasn't sure
Never felt a love like this before
Always wanna be your one and only
Never be lonely

Here in the middle of now or never
Finally found where I belong
I could go on like this forever
Looking at you, looking at you

Got me by your side
Never be lonely
Got me by your side
Never be afraid
And I will not let you down
Keeping both feet on the ground
Always wanna be your one and only
Never be lonely

Never be lonely
Never be lonely
Never be lonely
Never be lonely
Never be lonelyback to top
You Girl
When the winds blow cold
Am I left alone
To remember times gone by
Was it all in vain
Did the faces change
And I never questioned why
Now the answer's clear
I need you here, 'cause

Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you girl
Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you

You are my love today
My life tomorrow
My very soul
And I've searched over the mountains
All through the shadows
Under the water, too
All to find
Just to find that

Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you girl
Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you

Now the answer's clear
I need you here, 'cause

Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you girl
Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you

Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you girl
Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you

Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in you girl
Everything I'll ever want
Everything I'll ever need
Is in youback to top
Inspector Mills
Inspector mills I'd like to tell you 'bout a girl I saw
At a party just the other night in beverly hills
Inspector mills I hope you find her and it don't take long
Watch my feelings for her growing strong in a war of wills
Inspector mills

I can't attempt to point you in her direction
I didn't see her walking out of the door
If I had taken my time she'd be standing here still
Inspector mills

I recall once in my life I felt this way before
But I let her go and closed the door, walk away
Inspector mills I can't attempt to show the hurt in me
And just how much I need the company; search the valleys and the hills
You gotta find her mr. mills

I can't attempt to point you in her direction
I was blinded by the look in her eyes
If I had taken my time she'd be sitting here still
Inspector mills

Oo, someday soon I might be in love with her

Inspector mills I guess you've taken quite a look around
Guess I've heard the word from underground, she's gone for good
Inspector mills is it any crime for a fool like me
Try to use your time 'cause I wanna see; you just send me the bill
Inspector mills, inspector mills

I can't attempt to point you in her direction
I didn't see her walking out of the door
If I had taken my time she'd be lying here still
Inspector mills, inspector

I can't attempt to point you in her direction
I was blinded by the look in her eyes
If I had just followed through then I wouldn't be calling youback to top
Love on the Vine
I came home yesterday
To the love that I left behind
It seems I've been far away, yeah

But I know that the berry's ripe on the vine
And I know that the grapes will soon turn to wine
Yes I know I'll be there just in time to love you

I guess I just ran away (I just ran away)
Tried to see what I could not find (what I could not find)
It's been a one act play, yeah

But I know that the berry's ripe on the vine
And I know that the grapes will soon turn to wine
And I know I'll be there just in time to love you

I've been wasting time (wasting time)
With this old heart of mine (this old heart of mine)
Working it overtime, ah, ah, ah, ah

Just another blue day
Like the ones that I left behind
I know it's easy to say, yeah

But I know that the berry's ripe on the vine
And I know that the grapes will soon turn to wine
Yes I know I'll be there just in time to love you

Oh and I know that the berry's ripe on the vine
And I know that the grapes will soon turn to wine
Yes I know I'll be there just in time to love you

Love you on the vine, oh on the vine
Love you on the vine, oh on the vine
I love you on the vine, oh on the vine, ah
On the vine, oh on the vine ...back to top
Desperate Love
Secret calls long after hours
Suspicions rise, why does she whisper
Someone's hiding something
What's going on

She smiles and finds an excuse to go out
Meets him somewhere on the edge of town
For one more night of real love
How can it be wrong

'cause when they turn out the lights
In their rented room tonight
Two lovers won't be lonely anymore

When it's a desperate love, risk is high
Cheating hearts making alibis
In the shadows someone is waiting
Waiting for their lover to come tonight

A cheater's conscience has no pride
To spend the night with another man's wife
Lie to his best friend and never think twice
He knows where to find what he longs to have
And do anything 'cause he wants her that bad
Love has many faces, faces to hide

'cause when they turn out the lights
In their rented room tonight
Two lovers won't be lonely anymore

When it's a desperate love, risk is high
Cheating hearts making alibis
In the shadows someone is waiting
Waiting for their lover to come tonight

When it's a desperate love, risk is high
Cheating hearts making alibis
In the shadows someone is waiting
Waiting for their lover to come tonight

When it's a desperate love (desperate love), risk is high
Cheating hearts making alibis
In the shadows someone is waiting
Waiting for their lover to come tonight

When it's a desperate love (desperate love), risk is high
Cheating hearts making alibis
In the shadows someone is waiting
Waiting for their lover to come tonight ...back to top
Right Before Your Eyes
Every day I sit beside you
On the bus to madison avenue
Work in the big gray store
With the revolving doors

You don't even know my name
I guess that I'm to blame
Don't know the right things to say
So I pretend away

That I'm rudolph valentino
Pull up in my limousine
Oh, won't you come in out of the rain
Things'll never be the same

And then just like greta garbo
You stare like there's no tomorrow
And you'll know what I'm thinking of
Right before your eyes I fall in love with you

Do, do, do ...

Today I'm done with games (today I'm done with games)
Gonna ask you for your name
Say I've been watching you
I even know what you do

Maybe today I'll tell you (maybe today I'll tell you)
I've found the nerve to sell you
On a guy like me
Who wishes that he could be

Your rudolph valentino
Pull up in my limousine
Oh, won't you come in out of the rain
Things'll never be the same

And then just like greta garbo
You stare like there's no tomorrow
And you'll know what I'm thinking of
Right before your eyes I fall in love with you

Do, do, do ...

Right before your eyes I fall in love with you
Right before my eyes you'll say you love me to

Rudolph valentino
I pull up in my limousine
Oh, won't you come in out of the rain
Things'll never be the same

And then just like greta garbo
You stare like there's no tomorrow
And you'll know what I'm thinking of, oo

Do, do, do ...back to top
Jody
Just to think I had her in my hands
To think we made our plans
Somehow it feels just like a dream

For I played it so darn cool
Is there a bigger fool
To say I wanted to be free
'cause now I know just what she meant to me

Jody, even the wind says your name, girl
When I think of you I'm aflame, girl, everytime
Jody, girl I've tried but I can't forget
The years when we lived together
I thought it would be forever
Jody, I'm beggin' now

Look around but there's no way out
What's it all about
And how that name goes round my head
I still see her face as she laid upon this bed

Jody, even the wind says your name, girl
When I think of you I'm aflame, girl, everytime
Jody, girl I've tried but I can't forget
The years when we lived together
I thought it would be forever
Jody, I'm beggin' now

Just say the word, I'll run to you
I'll be the man you want me to
How I'd miss you I never knew

Jody, even the wind says your name, girl
When I think of you I'm aflame, girl, everytime
Jody, girl I've tried but I can't forget
The years when we lived together
I thought it would be forever
Jody, I'm beggin' now

Even the wind says your name girl
When I think of you I'm aflame, girl
Jody, even the wind says your name, girl
When I think of you I'm aflame, girl ...back to top
Sometimes Lovers
Sometimes there are teardrops across your face
Sometimes there are rainbows in the same place
And I don't know which way to turn

Sometimes lovers don't act like they should
And sometimes lovers don't do all they could
Sometimes lovers hide in the cover
Of innocence and blame
I know sometimes we act just the same

Your heart's in the city, it wears me down
No love, no pity, in this town
And I don't know which way to turn

Sometimes lovers don't act like they should
And sometimes lovers don't do all they could
Sometimes lovers hide in the cover
Of innocence and blame
I know baby

Hold on tight to me mama
Tell me what went wrong
I'm alright I will lay beside you
Till the night is gone

Ah, oo ...

Sometimes lovers don't act like they should
And sometimes lovers don't do all they could
Sometimes lovers hide in the cover
Of innocence and blame

Sometimes lovers don't act like they should
Sometimes lovers don't do all they could
Sometimes lovers hide in the cover
Of innocence and blameback to top
Even the Score
I stayed up all night long
Drinkin' and thinkin' 'bout you
Is there anything left at all
Is there anything that I can do

'cause I don't know what to say anymore
I don't know how to even the score with you, with you

Starin' hard at that big front door
Is it time now to find my shoes
It ain't the loss of love no more
I'm just tryin' hard to live with you

'cause I don't know what to say anymore
And I don't know how to even the score with you, with you
With you, with you

'cause I don't know what to say anymore
And I don't know how to even the score with you, oh, with you

Is love a question, who's weak, who's strong
I can't see it, where's a compromise
It's so confusin' where this thing has gone
It's gotta stop, you've gotta realize

'cause I don't know what to say anymore
And I don't know how to even the score with you, oh, with you
Yes, with you, oh, with you

'cause I don't know what to say anymore
And I don't know how to even the score with you, oh, with you
Yes, with you, oh, with you

I don't know what to say anymore
And I don't know how to even the score with you, oh, with you
Yes, with you, oh, with youback to top
