Track Name: Johnny & Jack
JOHNNY WENT DOWN TO THE COFFEE BAR
HE WAS HANGING IN HIS USUAL SPOT
WATCHING THE PEOPLE STANDING IN LINE
WAITING FOR A JAVA JOLT
IN WALKS JACK SO SATISFIED
HE'S GOT MONEY TO BURN
JOHNNY IS SITTING THERE WONDERING WHY
WHY HE CAN'T GET SOME

THEY'RE TEARING IT DOWN AND BUILDING IT UP AGAIN
JACK HAMMERS BREAKING THROUGH THE MORNING
JOHNNY CAN'T MAKE SENSE OF ANYTHING
NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIES
NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIES

JOHNNY IS HIDING BEHIND THE NEWS
PRETENDING THAT HE'S NOT THERE
HE'S JUST SITTING THERE LISTENING IN
TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT
JACK IS TALKING TO ALL THE GIRLS
HE'S GOT PLENTY OF CASH
JOHNNY DOSN'T HAVE A CAR
HE CAN'T AFFORD THE GAS

THEY'RE TEARING IT DOWN AND BUILDING IT UP AGAIN
JACK HAMMERS BREAKING THROUGH THE MORNING
JOHNNY CAN'T MAKE SENSE OF ANYTHING
NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIES
NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIES

THEY'RE TEARING IT DOWN AND BUILDING IT UP AGAIN
JACK HAMMERS BREAKING THROUGH THE MORNING
JOHNNY CAN'T MAKE SENSE OF ANYTHING
NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIES
NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIES
Track Name: Could It Be You
EVERYBODY'S LOOKING FOR THEIR SOMEONE
COULD IT BE YOU, COULD IT BE YOU
A NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK, A BURIED TREASURE
COULD IT BE YOU, COULD IT BE YOU

CAN YOU GIVE WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE LOVE HAPPEN
WHEN YOUR HEART STARTS TO BREAK DOES YOUR LOVE TURN TO HATE
ARE YOU LOOKING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT COMES FIRST
TO LOVE OR TO BE LOVED
TO LOVE OR TO BE LOVED

EVERYBODY'S LOOKING FOR THEIR SOMEONE
COULD IT BE YOU, COULD IT BE YOU
A NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK, A BURIED TREASURE
COULD IT BE YOU, COULD IT BE YOU

WHAT DO YOU OFFER TO MAKE LOVE WANT TO STAY
DO YOU GIVE FROM YOUR HEART OR DO YOU ONLY TAKE
ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR MISTAKES
CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IS MORE
TO LOVE OR TO BE LOVED
TO LOVE OR TO BE LOVED

IT'S A CIRCLE SPINNING ROUND
IN IT'S SEASON TURNING NOW
WHAT YOU'RE SEEKING CAN BE FOUND
DIG DEEP INSIDE YOURSELF
AND LET YOUR LOVE SHINE OUT
LET YOUR LOVE SHINE

COULD IT BE YOU
COULD IT BE YOU
COULD IT BE YOU
COULD IT BE YOU
Track Name: You Are the One
HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU FIND ME HERE
ONE HIDDEN IN THE BILLIONS
DID YOU HEAR MY PRAYER WHISPERED IN THE WIND
WERE YOU DREAMING ME, PULLING ME IN

YOU ARE THE ONE I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR
YOU ARE THE ONE I'VE BEEN DREAMING OF
NOW YOU ARE HERE LIKE A MIRACLE
LIKE AN ANGEL YOU ARE HERE

WHERE ON THIS EARTH WERE YOU HIDING
SEEMS LIKE A MILLION LIFETIMES
DID YOU HEAR ME CRYING IN THE SILENCE
A SALT WATER SEA OF LONLINESS

YOU ARE THE ONE, YES YOU ARE THE ONE
I RECOGNIZE YOU
I KNOW IT'S TRUE, I CAN TELL
YOU'RE THE ONE, YOU'RE THE ONE

WHAT VISION LED YOU TO SEE ME
INVISIBLE TO THE EYE
DID YOU CATCH ME SHINING
FROM BEHIND THE BLINDNESS
A THOUSAND CURTAINS CLOUDING THE MIND

YOU ARE THE ONE I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR
YOU ARE THE ONE I'VE BEEN DREAMING OF
NOW YOU ARE HERE LIKE A MIRACLE
LIKE AN ANGEL YOU ARE HERE

YOU ARE THE ONE, YES YOU ARE THE ONE
I RECOGNIZE YOU
I KNOW IT'S TRUE, I CAN TELL
YOU'RE THE ONE, YOU'RE THE ONE

I KNOW IT'S TRUE, I CAN TELL
YOU'RE THE ONE, YOU'RE THE ONE
Track Name: What Do You Want From Me
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
ONE SMALL PERSON OUT STANDING ALONE
SO SMALL ON MY OWN

ALL THESE RULES AND REGULATIONS
HIDDEN EXPECTATIONS
I GIVE SO MUCH, SO LITTLE TAKEN
DO MY BEST IN EVERY SITUATION
STILL IT'S NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU
(IT'S NEVER ENOUGH)

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
ONE SMALL PERSON OUT STANDING ALONE
SO SMALL ON MY OWN

I'M BENDING OVER BACKWARDS
WALKING THROUGH THE FIRE
BAREFOOT OVER BROKEN GLASS SHARDS
JUMPING THROUGH HOOPS
DANCING ON A HIGH WIRE
WHAT MORE CAN I POSSIBLY DO
WHAT CAN I POSSIBLY DO

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
ONE SMALL PERSON OUT STANDING ALONE
SO SMALL ON MY OWN

I'M NOT INSIGNIFICANT
DON'T TRY TO KEEP ME IGNORANT
I KNOW THAT I CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
I'M WORKING HARD, I'M COMMITTED
I'M WILLING TO SEE IT THROUGH
I'M WILLING TO SEE IT THROUGH

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
ONE SMALL PERSON OUT STANDING ALONE
SO SMALL ON MY OWN

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
ONE SMALL PERSON OUT STANDING ALONE
SO SMALL ON MY OWN
SO SMALL ON MY OWN
SO SMALL ON MY OWN
MY OWN
Track Name: Irresistable
YOU SHOW YOUR LOVE TO ME
IT'S EASY TO SEE THAT IT'S REAL
WITH OUT A DOUBT IT'S THE TRUTH
I CANNOT DENY WHAT YOU FEEL

YOU SHINE YOUR LOVE FROM YOUR SOUL
SHOWING A PATH FOR LOVE TO GROW
TOUCHING A PLACE IN MY HEART
THAT'S NEVER BEEN OPENED BEFORE

IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, TO ME

I IMAGINED SUCH A LOVE IN MY DREAMS
NOW YOU ARE HERE I BELIEVE
THE WARMTH OF YOU SWEET EMBRACE
THE LOVE IN YOUR EYES THAT I SEE

IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, TO ME
IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, IT'S IRRESISTIBLE, TO ME
Track Name: Paradise
I GO DOWN IN THE EARLY MORN
TO THE COFFEE SHOP
START THE DAY WAKE UP
STANDING IN LINE WAITING MY TURN
READING THE PAPER CATCH THE DAILY NEWS
THE WEATHER IS CLEAR THE DAY IS NICE
I LIVE IN PARADISE
I LIVE IN PARADISE

SUICIDE BOMBER IN A LITTLE CAFE
TWENTY-SEVEN DEAD THE HEADLINES SAY
I GET MY COFFEE SIT DOWN TO READ
SHAKING MY HEAD IN DISBELIEF
I LOOK OUTSIDE AT THE PEACEFUL DAY
EVERYTHING IS GOING JUST GREAT
I LIVE IN PARADISE
I LIVE IN PARADISE

BOMBS EXPLODING SO MANY MILES AWAY
PEOPLE DYING SUFFERING AND PAIN
DON'T WANT TO BRING ANYBODY DOWN
JUST GONNA SING A HAPPY SONG
INSIDE I'M CRYING

AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI
AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI
I LIVE IN PARADISE
I LIVE IN PARADISE
I LIVE IN PARADISE

AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI-AI
I LIVE IN PARADISE
Track Name: Alien Joe
HERE HE COMES
THERE HE GOES
WHO IS HE
ALIEN JOE

HE'S ONE OF A KIND
YOU'LL NEVER FIND
ANOTHER QUITE LIKE
ALIEN JOE

ALIEN JOE, ALIEN JOE
HE'S NOT OF THIS WORLD
ALIEN JOE

HE'S BEEN TO THE STARS
JUPITER AND MARS
IT'S NOT TOO FAR
FOR ALIEN JOE

IT'S ALL VERY STRANGE
NOTHING'S THE SAME
AFTER YOU'VE BEEN
WITH ALIEN JOE

ALIEN JOE, ALIEN JOE
HE'S NOT OF THIS WORLD
ALIEN JOE

ALIEN JOE
ALIEN JOE
ALIEN JOE!
Track Name: Lost Without You
LOST WITHOUT YOU
HERE BY MY SIDE
LOST WITHOUT YOU
IT JUST WOULDN'T BE RIGHT

YOU KEEP ME STRAIGHT
YOU KEEP ME COOL
LIFES JUST GREAT
WHEN I'M WITH YOU
WHEN I'M WITH YOU

LOST WITHOUT YOU
HERE BY MY SIDE
LOST WITHOUT YOU
IT JUST WOULDN'T BE RIGHT

YOU WAKE ME UP
YOU TUCK ME IN
WHEN I'M WITH YOU
I KNOW WHERE I AM
I KNOW WHERE I AM

HEY BABY COME OVER HERE
YOU'RE TOO FAR AWAY WAY OVER THERE
YOU'RE TOO FAR AWAY

LOST WITHOUT YOU
SO LOST WITHOUT YOU
LOST WITHOUT YOU
LOST WITHOUT YOU
Track Name: I Don't Know
OH I DON'T KNOW
OH I DON'T KNOW
OH I DON'T KNOW
OH OH OH OH OH I DON'T KNOW

WHAT YOU TRYING TO DO
WHAT YOU TRYING TO SAY
WHO YOU TRYING TO BE
WHY YOU ACT THAT WAY
I DON'T KNOW

WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE
DON'T KNOW IF IT'S TRUE
DON'T KNOW IF IT'S REAL
I DON'T KNOW

OH I DON'T KNOW
OH I DON'T KNOW
OH I DON'T KNOW
OH OH OH OH I DON'T KNOW

WHO YOU TRYING TO FOOL
WHY YOU PLAYING THAT GAME
WHAT YOU TRYING TO PROVE
WHY DO YOU ACT THAT WAY
I DON'T KNOW

WHY YOU OUT THERE TALKING THAT TRASH
BOASTING OFF ABOUT THE GUNS AND CASH
PIMPING THE WHORES AND THE BOOTY THING
LOOK AT THOSE CHILDREN BLINDED BY YOUR BLING
YOU AIN'T NOTHING BUT BAD FASHION
A HOOD IN A CON SUIT GANGSTER RAPPING
IT'S OBVIOUS IT'S A LOAD OF CRAP
YOUR BRITCHES ARE FALLING OFF OF YOUR ASS
"HOW YOU GONNA RUN WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU"
LOOK AT THOSE BABIES LOOKING UP TO YOU
COPY EVERYTHING YOU SAY AND DO
YOU AIN'T TAKING NO RESPONSIBILITY
PUSHING YOUR CRIME LIKE MR BIG TIME
DYING IN THE STREET AIN'T SO COOL TO ME
"HOW YOU GONNA RUN WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU"
PULL UP YOUR PANTS
"HOW YOU GONNA RUN WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU"
HERE COMES THE MAN
"HOW YOU GONNA RUN WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU"
PULL UP YOUR PANTS
"HOW YOU GONNA RUN WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU"
HERE COMES THE MAN
"HOW YOU GONNA RUN WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU"

OH I DON'T KNOW
OH I DON'T KNOW
OH I DON'T KNOW
OH OH OH OH I DON'T KNOW

OH OH OH
OH OH OH
OH OH OH
OH OH OH OH I DON'T KNOW
Track Name: Inbetween Lives
DON'T KNOW WHERE I'M GOING
DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
I'M TRYING TO DECIDE
I HAVN'T GOT A CLUE
I CAN'T MAKE UP MY MIND
I'M IN BETWEEN LIVES

I WAS SOMEBODY ONCE
NOT SO LONG AGO
I HAD THAT CONFIDENCE
NOW I DON'T KNOW
I'M JUST HANGING AROUND
IN BETWEEN LIVES

IN BETWEEN LIVES IT'S LIKE PURGATORY
LOOKING FOR AN ANGEL TO HEAR MY STORY
IN BETWEEN LIVES WAITING FOR THE NEXT ROLE
OPEN THE DOOR AND MOVE ME ON

I LOST MY JOB
THEY PUT ME OUT IN THE STREET
THE MONEY'S ALL GONE
AIN'T GOT NO FAMILY
NO CAR, NO HOME, NO ONE WOULD HAVE ME
I'M ALL ALONE
THIS TALE IS ALL I OWN

IN BETWEEN LIVES IT'S LIKE PURGATORY
LOOKING FOR AN ANGEL TO HEAR MY STORY
IN BETWEEN LIVES WAITING FOR THE NEXT ROLE
OPEN THE DOOR AND MOVE ME ON

I WAS SOMEBODY ONCE
NOT SO LONG AGO
I HAD THAT CONFIDENCE
NOW I DON'T KNOW
I'M JUST HANGING AROUND
IN BETWEEN LIVES
IN BETWEEN LIVES
IN BETWEEN LIVES
Track Name: Lovely Martha
COLD HANDS FROZEN BAIT UP BEFORE THE SUN
ANCHOVY ON A HOOK IN THE ICY DAWN
WE LOOK FOR THE SEA BIRDS
TO SHOW US WHERE THE FISH RUN
SHINEY SILVER SALMON
SPARKLING IN THE SUN
THE WAVES WASH GREEN
OVER THE DECK OF THE BOAT RIDING LOW
WE PULL IN OUR LINES
TAKE OUR CATCH AND GO HOME

ROCKING IN THE HOLD AT THE END OF DAY
IN THE DARK AND COLD I LISTEN TO THE SWAY
FISHING BOATS ALL TIED
HOW THEY WEEP AND MOAN
TUGGING AT THEIR MOORINGS
THEY BEAT THE DOCKS AND GROWN
THE SOUND ECHOS A LONELY YEARNING CHORD
REACHING FOR A DISTANT SHORE
SOMETHING PULLING ME SO STRONG

LOVELY MARTHA LIVES ON THE WATER FRONT
SEE HER DANCING IN THE WAVES
OUTSIDE THE GOLDEN GATE
LOVELY MARTHA DO YOU REMEMBER ME
I AM THE GYPSY TROUBADOUR YOU CARRIED OFF TO SEA

STRANDED ON THE SHORE I'M HANGING AROUND THIS WHARF
I WATCH THE BOATS GO OUT OUT TO SEA ONCE MORE
LOVELY MARTHA IS THERE
WEATHERED AS I AM GRAY
TIMELESS IN HER BEAUTY
STILL AFLOAT IN HER OLD AGE
I SEE HER DANCING OUT OVER THE RESTLESS WAVE
HOW IT MAKES ME ACHE TO SEE HER NOW THIS WAY

LOVELY MARTHA LIVES ON THE WATER FRONT
SEE HER DANCING IN THE WAVES
OUTSIDE THE GOLDEN GATE
LOVELY MARTHA DO YOU REMEMBER ME
I AM THE GYPSY TROUBADOUR YOU CARRIED OFF TO SEA
I AM THE GYPSY TROUBADOUR YOU CARRIED OFF TO SEA
Track Name: If You Could Feel
IF YOU COULD FEEL WHAT I FEEL
WHEN I'M HOLDING YOU
THEN YOU'D KNOW HOW I FEEL
AND YOU'D FEEL IT TOO

IF YOU COULD SEE WHAT I SEE
WHEN I LOOK AT YOU
THEN YOU'D KNOW
WHY I FEEL THE WAY THAT I DO

YOUR GENTLE TOUCH
YOUR SKIN SO SMOOTH
WE FIT TOGETHER
LIKE TWO SILVER SPOONS

IT FEELS SO GOOD
IT FEELS SO RIGHT
I HOLD YOU CLOSE
SO CLOSE
SO CLOSE
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT

I AM WHERE
I WANT TO BE
THERE'S NO WHERE ELSE
I'D RATHER GO
WITH YOU HERE
HERE WITH ME
I AM HOME
HOME SWEET HOME

IT FEELS SO GOOD
IT FEELS SO RIGHT
I HOLD YOU CLOSE
SO CLOSE
SO CLOSE
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
ALL NIGHT LONG
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
ALL NIGHT LONG
Track Name: By Gones Go By
I WAS SITTING HERE REMEMBERING
THINGS SO LONG FORGOT
I CAME ACROSS A THOUGHT
THAT REMINDED ME OF YOU
I SAW YOUR FACE SO CLEARLY
I COULD ALMOST FEEL YOU NEAR ME
AS I WENT FALLING BACK IN TIME

YOU WERE STANDING THERE
BESIDE THE DOOR
LOOKING BACK AT ME
TRYING TO MAKE ME SEE
TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND
THAT WAS SO VERY LONG AGO
I COULD TELL YOU DIDN'T KNOW
BUT STILL I WONDER WHY

SOMETHINGS YOU JUST CAN'T CHANGE
SOMETHINGS YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN
NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY
SOMETIMES IT'S BEST TO FORGET
SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO LET
BYGONES GO BY

I SAT WATCHING BY THE WINDOW
AS YOU WALKED AWAY
THERE WAS NO MORE TO SAY
NOTHING I COULD DO
I REMEMBER ALL TOO WELL
THE HELPLESSNESS I FELT
AT THAT MOMENT IN MY LIFE

SOMETHINGS YOU JUST CAN'T CHANGE
SOMETHINGS YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN
NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY
SOMETIMES IT'S BEST TO FORGET
SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO LET
BYGONES GO BY
