It's In The Way That You Use It
by Eric Clapton and Peter Robertson

It's in the way that you use it,
It comes and it goes.
It's in the way that you use it,
Boy don't you know.

And if you lie you will lose it,
Feelings will show.
So don't you ever abuse it,
Don't let it go.

Nobody's right till somebody's wrong.
Nobody's weak till somebody's strong.
No one gets lucky till luck comes along.
Nobody's lonely till somebody's gone.

Chorus

Chorus

First Verse

I've seen dark skies, never like this.
Walked on some thin ice, never like this.
I've told you white lies, never like this.
Looked into true eyes, never like this.

Run
by Lamont Dozier

Love on my mind, I used to be
Living it up, fancy free,
Then one night it came to an end;
I met that girl and the trouble began.

Something inside of me keeps on telling me to run.
Whatcha gonna do to me?
Something inside of me keeps on telling me to run.
Whatcha gonna do to me?

I was hooked with just one look,
Easy prey, child's play.
I knew this girl was no one night stand;
Felt just like putty in her hands.

Chorus

Got no answers, got no cure,
But one thing I know for sure:
This is the girl, she's the one.
She makes it so hard for me to run.

Chorus

People tell me,
You might as well face it, she's covered all the bases.
You might as well face it, she's covered all the bases.

Tearing Us Apart
by Eric Clapton and Greg Phillinganes

You know the sun is shining; it's raining in my heart.
I don't know what to do since we've been apart.
Why don't you tell me, babe, what is going on?
You know I love you darling, don't want to be alone.

They're tearing us apart,
They're breaking up my heart.
I knew it from the start:
Your friends are tearing us apart.

You know I can't go on, feeling this old way.
You know my heart is burning, it's burning everyday.
You know I love you, baby, no one else will do.
Why don't you reconsider, do what I want you to?

Chorus

Chorus

Your friends are tearing us apart,
Tearing us apart.back to top
Bad Influence
by Robert Cray and Mike Vannice

You use me to get you anything you wanted.
Oh, but I'm a changed man now, baby,
And your other friend can get you what you want now.
If I go through those same things again,
I'll be worse off than I started.

Girl, you're such a bad influence
And you've got ways to make me do what you want.
Girl, you're such a bad influence;
I've got to stay away.

I've been hurt in all of the worst kind of ways,
And it's you pretty baby,
I've just got to stay away from.
I won't go through those same things again;
I'm so glad that we parted.

Chorus

Somebody please, you've got to help me break away.
You know I don't like this lonely feeling.
It wasn't meant to be this way.
I won't go through those same things again;
I'm so glad we parted.

Chorus

You're such a bad influence;
And I have got to stay away.
You're such a bad influence;
I've got to stay away from you, baby.
I've got to stay away.back to top
Walk Away
by Marcy Levy and Richard Feldman

You leave a trail of tears wherever you go.
One of us will hold you, the other one won't.
But I could never share your love or leave it behind.
Break his heart, not mine.

Do you remember tender moments we shared?
How could this true affection vanish into thin air?
He's not worth the trouble, baby; he's just a waste of your time.
Oh, break his heart, not mine.

Don't you walk away,
You know you're gonna miss me.
Don't you walk away, walk away.
You're gonna miss me,
You're gonna miss my love.

So don't you walk away,
Don't you walk away, walk away.
Don't you walk away, walk away.

So I'll be waiting in the backroom, baby, when you kiss him goodbye.
Oh, break his heart not mine, but...

Chorus

Don't you walk away, walk away.
Oh don't you walk away.
I know you're gonna miss my love.
Don't you walk away, walk away.
Don't you walk away.
You're gonna miss my love.
Don't you walk away, walk away.back to top
Hung Up On Your Love
by Lamont Dozier
.
I was ready to take a chance,
I found myself a new romance.
Then you call that same old night,
Always change my mind.

Oh no, not again.
Oh no, not again.

Just when I thought it was over, you come back
And I'm hung up on your love again.
Just when I thought I was free, you come back.
Now I'm hung up on your love again.

Just as I was doing good,
You come back, just to prove you could.
Things will always be the same,
With me the victim of the game.

Oh no, not again.
Oh no, not again.

Take A Chance
by Eric Clapton, Greg Phillinganes and Nathan East

If I don't take a chance,
If I don't make a move,
If I don't go looking for new romance,
How will I ever find my groove?

If I don't play around,
How am I gonna have my fun?
If I tried to settle down,
Would I be fooling anyone?

I'm out on a limb above a sea of bliss;
I don't know why I feel this way.
I only know I love it.

And I feel so free today.
You know I feel so free today.
That's right, I feel so free, no matter where I go,
But I feel so free today.

If I don't make mistakes,
If I don't play the fool,
If I have to worry 'bout the heart I break,
How am I ever gonna learn the rules?

I'm looking for danger inside the sweetest smile;
I don't know why I feel this way.
I only know I love it.

Hold On
by Eric Clapton and Phil Collins

Deep down in the dead of night I call out your name.
It seems now that nothing is right, there's nothing but pain.
If only I'd told you I love you, now all I can do is...

Hold on, hold on to the feeling.
You've got to hold on, hold on to the feeling.
I don't feel right on this sad night.
Lord, I've got thistles growing in my pillow.

If you could believe in me, then I could be strong,
And then we could set our love free and right all these wrongs.
You'll know when I touch you how much you still mean to me, baby.

Chorus

Hold on, hold on.

Just give me one more chance.
Please give me one more chance.
Don't tell me our romance is through.

Chorus

Hold on, hold on to the feeling.
Hold on, hold on to the feeling.
You've got to hold on, hold on to the feeling.
Hold on, hold on to the feeling.back to top
Miss You
by Eric Clapton, Greg Phillinganes and Bobby Columby

Don't change your mind,
I ain't got the time to sit and wonder.
I'm doing fine.
If you decide to leave, I won't go under.

You know I've come this far without you;
It won't be too hard to be alone.
I've got choices all around me,
So I won't be spending too much time at home.

Girl, I'm gonna miss you.
I'm gonna miss you, baby.
I can't forgive you,
Instead I'm gonna miss you, baby.

No, don't say a word.
I already heard that you don't love me.
In your state of mind,
I don't need to hear your side of the story.

Your friends all said we had a future
And I don't think I really want to know.
My friends keep telling me to lose you
And how glad they'll be when you decide to go.

Chorus

I broke my back to make you happy.
Sometime, somehow, someone's got to care.
If you think you're better off without me,
Just remember, it's a dirty world out there.

Chorus

I'm gonna miss the ground you walk on,
Gonna miss the air you breathe.
I'm just not quite happy, baby,
'bout your crazy plans to leave.back to top
Holy Mother
by Eric Clapton and Stephen Bishop

Holy Mother, where are you?
Tonight I feel broken in two.
I've seen the stars fall from the sky.
Holy mother, can't keep from crying.

Oh I need your help this time,
Get me through this lonely night.
Tell me please which way to turn
To find myself again.

Holy mother, hear my prayer,
Somehow I know you're still there.
Send me please some peace of mind;
Take away this pain.

I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait any longer.
I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait for you.

Holy mother, hear my cry,
I've cursed your name a thousand times.
I've felt the anger running through my soul;
All I need is a hand to hold.

Oh I feel the end has come,
No longer my legs will run.
You know I would rather be
In your arms tonight.

When my hands no longer play,
My voice is still, I fade away.
Holy mother, then I'll be
Lying in, safe within your arms.back to top
