Keeps Me Wondering Why
(Gary Mallaber and Kenny Lee Lewis)

Sensations drift away
When I'm all alone
How can you take away my feelings
Bet our love until you lose
Then give back what you've been stealing
All these changes I go through

Keeps me wondering why
I'm still loving you
Keeps me wondering why
All these things that you do
Keeps me wondering why

Temptation rips away
Can this girl stay true
I just keep hanging on
Cause I know it's hard to find the magic
That's in every part of you
All the boys, they got to have it
All these changes I go through

Keeps me wondering why
I'm still loving you
Keeps me wondering why
All these things that you do
Keeps me wondering why
I'm still loving you

Keeps me wondering
Keeps me wondering
Keeps me wondering...

Keeps me wondering why
I'm still loving you
Keeps me wondering why
All these things that you do
Keeps me wondering why
I'm still in love with you
Keeps me wondering why
All these things that you do
Keeps me wondering why
You know, I'm still in love with you
Keeps me wondering why
All these things that you do
Keeps me wondering why
I'm still in love with youback to top
Abracadabra
(Steve Miller)

I heat up, I can't cool down
You got me spinnin'
'Round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burnin' for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

I feel the magic in your caress
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather and lace
Black panties with an angel's face

I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs
Just when I think I'm gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'roundback to top
Something Special
(Gary Mallaber, Lonnie Turner, and Greg Douglass)

Say that you love me a little bit
Say that I do something special
I don't want no sympathy
But you mean the world to me
Say that you need me and let me know
Say that I do something special

It wouldn't take that much of your precious time
But I need a little love to carry on
A busy life is no excuse
For leaving me alone
I hope you know what you lost
When it's gone

Say that you love me a little bit
Say that I do something special
I don't want no sympathy
But you mean the world to me
Say that you need me and let me know
Say that I do something special

Remember how we used to love and carry on
And how I used to dance you across the floor
The way it was compared to now
Is tearin' me apart
We never say I love you anymore

Say that you love me a little bit
Say that I do something special
Something special
Something special
Something specialback to top

Never Say No
(Gary Mallaber, John Massaro, and Kenny Lee Lewis)

Out working on the virgin ground
Waitin' for the time I could head to town
All those pretty girls, I'll be looking for the pearl
That could bring me up and ease me down

Flying down the dusty road
Little foreign wheels putting on a show
My thoughts are hazy about this girl
Might make me crazy, I bet she will
Never say, never say no
Don't ever let me hear ya say ya gotta go
Never say, never say no
You better say never say no

Then she stopped to my surprise
Little foreign wheels want to cross the line
With her voice so soft
Turned the poppin' Johnny off
Then I began to realize
She said her daddy needs to know
'Bout this ol' boy 'fore he lets her go
I'll work for him, then time will tell
He'll get to know me, I bet he will

Never say, never say no
Don't ever let me hear ya say ya gotta go
Never say, never say no
Never let me hear ya say ya gotta go
No, never say, never say no
Never let me hear ya say ya gotta go
Never say, never say no, no
Never say, never say no
Don't ever let me hear ya say ya gotta go
Never say, never say no
Never let me hear ya say ya gotta go
Never say, never say no
Don't ever let me hear ya say ya gotta go
Never say, never say no, no
Don't ever say, never say no
Never let me hear ya say ya gotta go
Never say, never say no
Never let me hear ya say ya gotta goback to top
Things I Told You
(Gary Mallaber and John Massaro)

I've been digging something up
Bet you thought I've been sleeping
Having trouble waking up
It's just the hours I've been keeping

Up in this attic all alone
The situation's unnerving
And while the candle's going out
Each weathered page I keep turning
Looking back, fundamental romance
Some are still around
Some went underground

Criticize all the letters I find in this tattered book
Please take a look
The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew
You'd always be my only one

I've been looking something up
It always seems to amaze me
That's just the way we used to dance
You never thought it was crazy
The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew
You'd always be my only one
Just you

The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew
You'd always be my only one
It always seems to amaze me
You never thought it was crazy

Looking back, fundamental romance, campus Romeo
But only you would know
I realize that you've waited so long for the cards to fall
And after all
The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew you'd always be my only one
The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew you'd always be my only oneback to top
Young Girl's Heart
(Gary Mallaber and John Massaro)

I see you jaded like a debutante
Things your image never shows
There's something hiding deep inside of you
Something that I'll never know
Then I saw you on the streets alone
Had you paged on the corner phone
The words just kept me straining to express
You're hard to break and you still ache

Like a young girl, like a young girl's heart
Like a young girl, just like a young girl's heart

I stand here waiting in my lily white
Scan the lines you'll be famous for
Then we'll talk about what's good and what's bad
Romantic moves we won't have to score
Like you were saying what you really want
Ah, it's funny you should ask me now
It was all right there in the story I just read
I'm hard to break and you still ache

Like a young girl, like a young girl's heart
Like a young girl, just like a young girl's heart
Like a young girl, just like a young girl's heart
Like a young girl, like a young girl's heart
Just like a young girl, like a young girl's heart
Like a young girl, just like a young girl's heart
Like a young girl, like a young girl's heart
Like a young girl, just like a young girl's heart
Like a young girl, like a young girl's heart
Just like a young girl's heartback to top
Goodbye Love
(Gary Mallaber, Greg Douglass, and Lonnie Turner)

It's not the way that love is meant to be
You took me by surprise but now I see
You know this heartache-night is killing me

(Baby bye-bye)
Forget the past, honey
Better try someone new (Baby don't cry)
There's nothing left here
For me or for you
You know this heartache-night
Will soon be through

Goodbye love
Goodbye love
Goodbye love
What's done is done, darling
This much is true
It's all over now
Don't be blue
You know this heartache-night
Will soon be through

Goodbye love
Goodbye love
Goodbye love
Baby bye-bye
Goodbye love
Baby bye-bye

Goodbye love
Baby bye-bye
Goodbye love
Goodbye love
Goodbye loveback to top
Cool Magic
(Gary Mallaber and Kenny Lee Lewis)

I can't imagine how to tell my story and, ah...
Not fuss or fight, but...I really wanna talk to you
You see, I'm not in agreement with the law this morning
So don't be my judge and jury, do I get through to you
But every time I try to build up my case
You tear it down with your pretty face
You stand your ground
And show the lightning in your eyes
And then I feel it

Cool magic wins me over
Oh, so silent, always strong and I tell ya
Cool magic wins me over
So, I surrender to your charm

I'm too defensive to give up without a fight
But you know my motions what am I gonna do
Although it seems it's never-ending
And I'm desperate
To live right here
Under your spell tonight

And every time I try to build up my case
You tear it down with your pretty face
You stand your ground and
Show the lightning in your eyes
And then I feel it

Cool magic wins me over
Oh, so silent, always strong and I tell ya
Cool magic wins me over
So I surrender to your charm

Just when I feel I'm 'bout to lose my mind
Then here it comes again one more time
I really need it

Cool magic wins me over
Oh, so silent, always strong and I tell ya
Cool magic wins me over
So I surrender to your charm

Cool magic
Cool magic
Cool magic
Cool magic

While I'm Waiting
(Gary Mallaber and John Massaro)

I left my message on your number
In hopes that you might call
Riding high on good intentions
Still hanging on the wall
Although my words were never all too
Clear it's understood
It's never too late to say in other ways
Something in our lives we'll rearrange
More than just your call on holiday

Ring me up, don't bring me down
Don't let me hear you won't
Come through tonight
Ring me up, don't bring me down
You know this lonely heart stands by me
While I'm waiting

Remembering how it came together
The meaning in your eyes
Now words fall out like perfect strangers
We both apologize
In all this time I thought I knew you
And over looked somehow the reasons why
You kept inside

Ring me up, don't bring me down
Don't let me hear you won't
Come through tonight
This lonely heart stands by me
While I'm waiting

Ring me up, don't bring me down
Don't let me hear you won't
Come through tonight

Ring me up, don't bring me down
Here's hoping the days gone by we'll see again
This lonely heart stands by and I'm still waiting
Ooh still waiting
Ooh still waitingback to top
