Got You on My Mind
By joe thomas & howard biggs
I've got you on my mind, I'm feeling kind of sad and low.
Got you on my mind, feeling kind of sad and low.
I'm wondering where you are, wondering why you had to go.

Tears begin to fall every time I hear your name.
Tears begin to fall every time I hear your name.
But since you went away, nothing seems to be the same.

No matter how I try,
My heart just don't see why
I can't forget you.
If ever it should be
You want to come back to me,
You know I'd let you.

First verse

Chorus

First verse

I'm wondering where you are, wondering why you had to go.
I'm wondering where you are, wondering why you had to go.back to top
Travelin' Light
By j. j. cale
Travelin' light is the only way to fly.
Travelin' light, just you and i.
A one way ticket to ecstasy,
Away on down, just follow me.
Travelin' light is the only way to fly.

Travelin' light, now we can catch the wind.
Travelin' light, just let your mind pretend.
We can go to paradise,
Maybe once, maybe twice.
Travelin' light is the only way to fly.

Travelin' light is the only way to fly.
Travelin' light, just you and i.
We can go to paradise,
Maybe once, maybe twice.
Travelin' light is the only way to fly.back to top
Believe in Life
By eric clapton
When the world has seen the light
At the beginning of the day,
You will let me call your name,
'cause I love you more than light,
And it will always be this way
As long as I believe in life.

When the morning comes too soon
And I am still without your love,
You will let me call your name,
'cause I love you more than light,
And it will always be this way
As long as I believe in life.

Whatever happened to the girls I used to know?
Whatever happened to the places that we'd go?
When we were running in and out of time,
But all the time we still believed in life.
We were running in and out of time,
But still believed in life.

And when the day is almost done
And there is nothing left to say,
You will let me call your name,
'cause I love you more than light,
And it will always be this way
As long as I believe in life.

Running in and out of time,
But still believed in life.

And when the day is almost done
And there is nothing left to say,
You will let me call your name,
'cause I love you more than light,
And it will always be this way
As long as I believe,
As long as you believe,
As long as I believe that you believe, then I'll believe, I'll believe in life.
As long as I believe that you believe, then I'll believe, I'll believe in life.

Believe in life.
I believe in life.
I believe in life.back to top
Come Back Baby
By ray charles
Oh come back baby, oh mama please don't go.
Child, the way I love you, well you'll never know, oh.
Come back baby, yeah yeah,
Let's talk it over one more time.

Well I admit, baby, that I was wrong.
Don't you know baby, child you've been gone too long.

I'd go up on the mountain, people, I'd call my baby back, oh.
Come back baby, yeah yeah,
Let's talk it over one more time.

Now one of these days, baby, and it won't be long, yeah.
You're going to look for me child, you know, and I'll be gone.
So come back baby, yeah yeah,
Let's talk it over one more time.back to top
Broken Down
By simon climie & dennis morgan
Everything was wonderful when you were in my life.
Yesterday we were on a roll, baby, then we end up in a fight.
Everywhere I look, I see problems, where I never seen before.
The cracks in the sidewalk, when I get home my key don't even fit the door.

The moon don't shine, it's broken down.
The clouds are crying, they're broken down.
The car won't start, it's broken down.
And this shattered heart, it's broken down.
My whole damn world, it's broken down.
Since you left me girl, I've broken down.

Stepped outside into the night, I took a walk around the block.
I stopped by the church that I used to go inside but even that door was locked.
So I came back home, feeling so alone, a light had burned out in the hall.
My tv is broke, said I'm out of smoke, there's no one I can even call.

Chorus

Said my whole damn world, it's broken down.
Since you left me girl, I've broken down.

Till you come back, come back to me, I'm going to be broken down.
Till you come back, come back to me, I'm going to be broken down.

Chorus

I mean my whole damn world, it's broken down.
Since you left me girl, I've broken down.
My whole damn world, it's broken down.
Since you left me girl, it's broken down.back to top
Find Myself
By eric clapton
We took the long way home, you held my hand,
The days so full of all the things we had planned.
We walked beyond the green, beyond the day.
We shared a dream that I let slip away.

I had to find myself.
I had to find myself.
No use looking for no one else,
'cause I'll be lonely till I find myself.

You were the man who knew too much to say.
So many things that I learned came your way.
These things I know that I can't forget,
Deep in my heart, they're a part of me yet.

They helped me find myself.
They helped me find myself.
No use looking for no one else,
'cause I'll be lonely till I find myself.

Too many years rolled by without a word.
I tried to hide behind things that I'd heard.
And now the truth is clear for all to see
That through it all, it was you believed in me.

You helped me find myself.
I had to find myself.
No use looking for no one else,
'cause I'll be lonely till I find myself.

I got to find myself.
I got to find myself.
No use looking for no one else,
'cause I'll be lonely till I find myself.back to top
I Ain't Gonna Stand for It
By stevie wonder
I don't want to believe what they're telling me;
Somebody's been picking in my cherry tree.
I don't want to mistrust somebody by mistake.
Somebody's been digging 'round in my cake.

And I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby, nah nah.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby.
I ain't gonna stand for it, baby, nah nah, nah nah.

I don't want to believe what somebody said;
Somebody said somebody's shoe was under my bed.
I don't want to cause nobody no bodily harm.
Somebody's been rubbing on my good luck charm.

Chorus

Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.
Oh, my my my my my my.

I Want a Little Girl
By murray mencher & billy moll
I want a little girl, call my own.
She must be someone who's all alone now.
Say, I want a little girl to fall in love with me, oh yeah.

I want a little girl, but she may not look
Just like a picture in a story book.
If she can cook chicken, yeah, she'll suit me to a t.

And she don't have to wave her hair
Or even wear fancy clothes, I wouldn't even care.
She don't wear nylon hose, oh.

I want a little girl to love a lot.
You know that I'd give her everything I got.
I want a little girl to fall in love with me.back to top
Second Nature
By eric clapton, simon climie & dennis morgan
You walk into the room, you know what's on my mind.
You know just how to reach me, baby, without even trying.
Don't need no one to tell me what this is leading to,
'cause something deep inside of me is dragging me to you.

So roll the dice, baby, see what the future brings.
Sure feels like the right time for you to spread your wings.
Ain't no one but you, baby, ever stopped me in my tracks.
Once this thing gets rolling, darling, well there ain't no turning back.

Second nature, to look at what we've found.
Second nature, you know we're heaven bound.
No need to think about it, you know we're safe and sound.
Second nature for you to come around.

So take me to your heart, babe, and lead me to your door.
Take me in your arms, babe, never leave me any more.
Ain't no one like you, baby, to stop me in my tracks.
All I know for this old heart, well there ain't no turning back.

Chorus

You must have heard my call,
Like rain to a waterfall.

Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight
By james taylor
Do me wrong, do me right, do me right baby.
Tell me lies but hold, hold me tight.
Save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.

Say goodbye, woman say hello, say hello.
It's sure enough good to see you, but it's time to go,
And don't say yes, but please don't say no.
I don't want to be lonely tonight.

Go away then, damn you, go on and do as you please, do as you please,
But you ain't going to see me getting down on my knees,
'cause I'm undecided and your heart's been divided.
You've been turning my world upside down.

Do me wrong, do me right, do me right baby.
Go on and tell me lies but hold, hold me tight.
And save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.

Save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.
'cause I don't want to be lonely tonight.

I don't want to be lonely.
Don't do it, don't do it, don't do it, don't do it.back to top
Modern Girl
By eric clapton
She's a modern girl in a modern world
Where only the strong can survive.
Too many dreams have been laid at her door,
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh.

Where would you fit in the scheme of her day
And where could you fit in her heart?
Trying to be small will get you nowhere at all,
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh.

Don't throw your love away.
Don't throw your love away.
Don't throw your love away.
Don't throw your love away.

She moves through your life like a warm summer breeze,
And nothing will stand in her way.
The sound of her voice brings your heart to it's knees,
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh.

Superman Inside
By eric clapton, doyle bramhall ii & susannah melvoin
Living, loving, ain't going to waste my life.
Singing music, someday the sun don't shine.
I don't want to be the one,
The one that can never say,
I need to let it out, won't you let me in.

Give it all up, surrender thankfully.
Fall down on my knees, my hands open wide.
I don't want to be the one,
The one that can never say,
I need to let it out, won't you let me in.

Look in the mirror, even with a broken heart I'm fine.
Keep on pushing, getting closer to peace of mind.
Look in the mirror, even with a broken heart I'm fine.
Living is so sweet now with superman inside.

No more running, ain't going to hide away.
I'm standing outside in the pouring rain.
'cause I don't want to be the one,
The one that can never say,
I need to let it out, won't you let me in.
