Dawn On Me 00:40
2.
Saw you dancing on your balcony last night You were on your own Had to tell you that it made me feel so nice Heard you sing that soulful melody again Got me wondering why I've never really seen you as more than a friend CHORUS If we could be together Then my world would be alright If we could be together You and I Felt you brushing by me walking down the street Had to pinch myself How I wish that I'd been fearless enough to speak CHORUS
3.
With a motion of your hand You gather up a storm Your flashing eyes command That raging rivers flow Something tells me I should run Don’t want my life to come undone I've been caught in a landslide And I'm losing control I've fallen over the mountainside For you, heart and soul There's a thundercloud above And a rainfall closing in As if that is not enough I'm swept away again Something tells me I should run Don’t want my life to come undone I've been caught in a landslide And I'm losing control I've fallen over the mountainside For you, heart and soul Am I in or am I out Torn between desire and doubt Feels as though I’m marking time Even I don’t quite know why I've been caught in a landslide And I'm losing control I've fallen over the mountainside For you, heart and soul

Emily 03:54
I don't wanna be a drifter anymore I'm not gonna stay all down-and-out and poor Now that I found you, I'm done with being blue I'm more and more convinced that we can make it through Emily, I'm gonna love you forever Stay with me, we're gonna get it together Undirected, you've been floating down a stream Until I took your hand and dragged you from your dream Now that you found me, it's evident to see This is the way that it's supposed to be Emily, I'm gonna love you forever Stay with me, we're gonna get it together I've been a long, long way from home You've been traveling the world alone Now we're treading a better path through the great unknown Emily, I'm gonna love you forever Stay with me, we're gonna get it together
5.
Torn by a feeling I stagger in a trance My head is reeling I lost my only chance How could I let it slip away I wish I knew I should have told you you were all I needed Two kindred spirits I knew it right from the start Our love had no limits Oooo why, why did I break your heart My eyes are downcast They're looking for a clue All that has now passed Means nothing without you How could I let it slip away I wish I knew I should have told you you were all I needed Two kindred spirits I knew it right from the start Our love had no limits Oooo why, why did I break your heart

Turnaround 04:55
Ten fifteen down at Jamie's I'm lost in my scheme I've been working like crazy Drafting this dream CHORUS Here comes the turnaround And I know that it will last forever Here comes the turnaround Again Got a friend on the inside Who's deeply in debt He's been sniffing the white lines And playing Roulette CHORUS We've been drawing our handguns The guards have been subdued Now it's time to abandon the scene With our riches renewed The boys in blue have a roadblock Further ahead Without my millions I won't stop I'd rather be dead

I've been thinking 'bout you every night While the rain's been pouring down I lie awake 'til the morning light And hope you might come 'round Is it just a vain desire Was it only love for hire Can't you see my tears of isolation Can't you see my tears of isolation So many days have come and gone Since we left this love behind I'm trying hard to not hold on But you still possess my mind Is it just a fool's desire Was it only love for hire Can't you see my tears of isolation Can't you see my tears of isolation Can't you see my tears of isolation Can't you see my tears of isolation Won't you realize my desolation Can't you see my tears of isolation

Hold On 04:19
I know I might have lost my way Demons led me far astray I have gambled love away But I can't think of someone new They fade away like daylight dew All my roads lead back to you Hold on It's not over, baby I'm still crazy for your love Hold on It gets colder, baby I hope you still believe in love And now I sit here and pretend That you would call and tell me when I can see you once again But this is not reality I'm so blind that I can't see There is no such thing as we Hold on It's not over, baby I'm still crazy for your love Hold on It gets colder, baby I hope you still believe in love

When you smile I get so high I can almost touch the sky When you're there I feel aware Of a sweetness in the air When you smile There's a heaven above us girl And all the while I think I love you When you smile When you smile I feel that I Wanna give you all my time When you're near I see it clear There's no point in all this fear When you smile There's a heaven above us girl And all the while I think I love you When you smile And when I get down Nothing turns my frown around As when I see that grin on you And it makes me smile too When you smile There's a heaven above us girl And all the while I think I love you When you smile When you smile There's a heaven above us girl And all the while I think I love you When you smile

Bridgework 00:45

I've seen it coming for some time I'm losing what was mine And God knows that's a crime With bags of sorrow I'll go tomorrow I play the blues to the beat of your heart I play the blues to the beat of your heart What's the news that will tear us apart? I play the blues to the beat of your heart I've been a birdbrain for too long But jazz was not your song The melody was wrong With bags of sorrow I'll go tomorrow I play the blues to the beat of your heart I play the blues to the beat of your heart What's the news that will tear us apart? I play the blues to the beat of your heart I remember when you told me You'd never hold me ransom I realize that you controlled me And the price to pay was handsome I play the blues to the beat of your heart I play the blues to the beat of your heart What's the news that will tear us apart? I play the blues I play the blues to the beat of your heart I play the blues to the beat of your heart What's the news that will tear us apart? I play the blues
