You Can't Have My Heart
(J.Shanks/CJ Vanston/Tonio K.)

You can keep that diamond ring
Take it down town and find out what it will
You can ask me to give you almost anything
All except my heart

You can't have my heart
I'm takin that with me
Somebody else might want it
You broke it almost constantly
So you can't have my heart

I will not be true to you
I wont wait till you decide what you're gonna do
You may change your mind, but it's too late this time
Give me back my heart

You can't have my heart
I'm takin that with me
Somebody else might want it
You broke it way too frequently
Now you can't have my heart

I'm takin that with me
Somebody else might want it
You broke it almost constatly
So you can't have my heart

I don't care any more
Why you act the way you do
I won't be there anymore
I won't even be thinking about it
I'll take the future
You can have the rest
All except my heart

You can't have my heart
I'll take that with me
You really didn't want it
You broke it almost constantly
Now you can't have my heart
I'll take that with me
Somebody else might want it
You broke it almost constantly
So you can't have my heartback to top
Love Not War
(T.Snow / B.Griffin)

Just 24 hours ago the sound my heart made as it broke
Echoed across the room and cut right through the words you spoke.
I don't wanna fight till 3 a.m. wake up red eyed and start again
My tears won't solve a thing

Do you ever know what your fighting for ?
Baby cause I can't take it any more
Lets make love not war
We can get it back like it used to be
Lay down your arms baby come to me
Let's make love not war

If love is oxygen we're cutting off the air supply
You sting and I can't breathe
I need to know, the reason why
If I've been hard to handle I'm the first to apologise
Cuz baby this goes both ways

Do you even know what you're fighting for
Baby cause I can't take it any more
Lets make love not war
We can get it back like it used to be
Lay down your arms baby come to me
Let's make love not warback to top
You Took It So Hard
(J.Shanks/Tonio K./CJ Vanston)

You're not sure how long it's been
Too long is all I know
You never knew what happened when
Your lover just had to go
Couldn't look you in the eye
Never really said goodbye
Even though you didn't cry
Sometimes you wished you could have

You took it so hard
When that world came crashing down .. on you
You picked up your heart
All those pieces on the ground .. of you
Swore you'll never love again
Couldn't see a new day when:

Everything would turn around
Your heart would finally mend
All the love lost would be found
With someone new again
And you'd finally forget
All the sorrow and regret
Close your eyes and take a breath
And let another lover heal you

Cause you took it so hard
When that world came crashing down.. on you
You picked up your heart
All those pieces on the ground .. of you
Your afraid to love again
You can't see a new day when:

They tell you keep the faith
That's all its gonna take
But you know they are mistaken
It takes a lot of faith and courage

What if I would say to you
That not all love goes bad
What if I could show you
Would you ever take the chance
If I proved it with a sign
Turned the tear drops into wine
Would it make up for the time
Your trust was shattered

And you took it so hard
When that world came crashing down .. on you
You picked up your heart
All those pieces on the ground.. of you
You took it so hard
Swore you'll never love again
You picked up your heart
Couldn't see a new day when
You took it so hard
You took it so hardback to top
Never Tear Us Apart
(A.Farriss/M.Hutchence)

Don't ask me what you know is true
Don't have to tell you
I love your precious heart
I was standing, you were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

We could live for a thousand years
But if I hurt you
I'd make wine from your tears
I told you that we could fly
Cause we all have wings
But some of us don't know why

I was standing, you were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never, ever tear us apart

Don't ask me I was standing there
You know it's true you were there
Worlds collided, two worlds collided
We're shinning through
And they could never tear us apart

You don't ask me
You were standing
You know it's true
I was there, worlds collided
Two worlds collided
Were shinning through
And they could never tear us apartback to top
This Is Your Life
(J.Shanks / S.Pieken)

Gotta give it up
Gotta let it go
Cause hangin'n like this
Only breaks the flow
Gotta act as if
It's all for the best
Cause maybe it is and if it is
It's worth the test

You gotta pick your battles
You gotta let 'em roll
You gotta dig down deep
And trust your soul

This is your liffe
This is your day
Ain't no dress rehearsal
So get outta your way
Smell the roses

Dig the ride
You can't take it with you when you say goodbye
This is your life

Get outta your head
Get into your heart
Forgive and forget
Whatever you take too hard
Cause time is flyin'
And time won't wait
I've seen it all
Make no mistake

You can sit there in your cloud
Or you can open (up0 your eyes
Right noe
And you'll see
I'll be the first
You can believe
Trust in meback to top
I'm Listening Now
(Shanks / Tonio K.)

There were times, I was sure
Everything was gonna be alright
The sun would shine, the world would turn
No matter how, I lived my life
Never needed anyone's advice
Well that was then
Today I'm thinking twice

I'm listening now
Trying to get it right
Tryin to figure it out somehow
Yes I'm listening now

We all got our own plan
Our own way to ease the pain
We all find our own medicine
From blinding faith to novacain
To stop the world
And filter out the noise
But sooner or later you've got to listen to that voice

I'm listening now
Trying to get it right
Tryin to figure it out somehow
Yes I'm listening now

Na na na
Na na na
Na na na

There were times, I was sure
Everything was gonna be alright
The sun would shine, the world would turn
No matter how, I lived my life
Loves the answer just like they always said
Come on baby, tell me something about love instead

I'm listening now
Trying to sort it out
Tryin to figure it out somehow
Yes I'm listening now
I'm listening now
Tryin to get it right
Tring to figure it out somehow
Yes I'm listening now
Yes I'm listening now
Yes I'm listening nowback to top
Leave a Light On
(John Shanks/CJ Vanston/Shelly Peiken)

Everytime it rains
I feel this way again
Like I'm somewhere
Out there lost in time
Miss me while I'm gone
That's all I really want
And the promise of tomorrow
Will fill our open arms

[Chorus:]
I believe there's a reason
Why it's ment to be
I believe there's a way
That we can love and still be free
And if your heart's burning bright then
That's all I need
Yes it's right where I need to be
So leave a kight on
Leave a light on for me

We're dancing our own dance
It's a beautiful romance
And nobody can tell us how to move
We'r not close enough to touch
That doesn't matter much
'cause our spirits are connected
And we're not just passing through

[Chorus]

From your window I can see a soul that shines
I close my eyes, but yours still find a way to mine
Deep down, deep down

Everytime it rains
I feel this way again
Like I'm somewhere
Out there lost in time

[Chorus]back to top
It's Only Love
(John Shanks/Shelly Peiken)

It's never too late to turn a night into day
I'll meet you halfway and we'll see it through
We're just standing here
There's only me and you
Don't tell me you don't feel it
Cause I feel it too

Well these dreams we can use
Gods grace is living proof
We'll take the time, and get it right

So come on, come on, come on
I know we can make it
I'll hold you in my arms
It's only love that keeps us strong
So come on, come on, come on
So much we've wasted
We're right where we belong
I't only love that keeps us strong

Never too late to finally take a second chance
And I saw mine, when I saw you
Everything changed the moment we began again
Our broken hearts were pulling through
Something real, something close
Helped us feel, and let us go
So here we are, now we know

So come on, come on, come on
I know we can make it
I'll hold you in my arms
It's only love that keeps us strong
So come on, come on, come on
So much time we've wasted
We're right where we belong
I't only love that keeps us strong

I have been a beggar
And yu have been a fool
We've been lost beyond repair
But you have touched my soul
And I have bent your rules
Only love could save us
Show us what we're made of

So come on, come on, come on
I know we can make it
I'll hold you in my arms
It's only love that keeps us strong
So come on, come on, come on
So much time we've wasted
We're right where we belong
I't only love that keeps us strongback to top
Every Time It Rains
(Randy Newman)

Every time it rains
I sit at home and wonder why
Ever since you said goodbye
I felt so all alone
Every time it rains
And summer showers soak the ground
I watch the rain come pouring down
And I call out your name

Every time it rains
I hang my head and want to die
And I don't seem to care that
I'm just not making it on my own
Every time it rains

Sometimes late at night
I close my eyes
And pretend that you're here with me
But every time it rains
I realize just how lonely my life is going to be

Every time it rains
Every time I hear the raindrops fall
I may say that I don't mind it at all
But I do

Every time it rains
Every time I try to tell myself
That in time I'll find somebody else
But it won't be you
Every time it rains
Every time it rainsback to top
Midnight Without You
(P. Buchanan/J.Moore/C.BotI)

Look at the cars Going nowhere fast
They disappear like you
Stars are falling The time is changing
To midnight without you
So I walk out
The streets and alleys round here
The taxI's heading on Uptown again
Right to the station Where people stand waiting
And every night I know
The cost of letting go
Is midnight without you Yeah
It's midnight without you yeah
And though I might want to
I just can't stand the cold in you
I'd do anything but go through, yeah
This midnight without you
No, no
Midnight without you
This midnight without you
Midnight without you
I walk out
Clock on the wall Steps in the hallback to top
