Track Name: Lovesong
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I'll always love you, I'll always love you
'Cause I love you
Track Name: How Deep Is Your Love
I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again

And you come to me like a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love and then softly leave
And it's me you need to show
How Deep Is Your Love

How deep is your love, How deep is your love
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest darkest hour
You save me when I fall
And you may not think
That I care for you
When you know down inside
That I really do
And it's me you need to show
How Deep Is Your Love

How deep is your love, How deep is your love
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

And it's me you need to show
How Deep Is Your Love

How deep is your love, How deep is your love
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

How deep is your love (is your love, how deep is your love)
how deep is your love (is your love, how deep is your love)
how deep is your love (is your love, how deep is your love)
Track Name: Rock With You
Boy, close your eyes
Let that rhythm get in to you
Don't try to fight it
There ain't nothin' that you can do
Relax your mind
Lay back and groove with mine
You gotta feel that heat
And we can ride the boogie
Share that beat of love

I wanna rock with you (all night)
Dance you in to day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We're gonna rock the night away

Out on the floor
There ain't nobody there but us
Boy, when you dance
There's a magic that must be love
Let's take it slow, 'coz we got so far to go
When you feel that heat
And we're gonna ride the boogie
Share that beat of love

I wanna rock with you (all night)
Dance you in to day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We're gonna rock the night away

And when that groove is dead and gone, yah
You know that love survives
And we can rock forever, ooooh

I wanna rock with you, yah (all night)
Dance you in to day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We're gonna rock the night away

I Wanna Rock With You, yah (all night)
Dance you in to day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We're gonna rock the night away

I wanna rock with you
I wanna rock with you (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We're gonna rock the night away

I wanna rock with you, yah.
Track Name: Blackbird
Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these broken wings and learn to fly,
All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see,
All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly, into the light of a dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these broken wings and learn to fly,
All your life...

You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.
Track Name: Can't Find My Way Home
Come down off your throne and leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting so long
Somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Come down on your own and leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key
In the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Well now, in the end when I just ain't got the time
Oh, well I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Can't find, can't find, my way home (can't find my way)
Can't find my way home

Can't find, can't find, my way home (can't find my way)
Can't find my way home

Can't find, can't find, my way home (can't find my way)
Can't find my way home
Track Name: Border Song
Holy Moses I have been removed
I have seen the specter he has been here too
Distant cousin from down the line
Brand of people who ain't my kind
Holy Moses I have been removed

Holy Moses I have been deceived
Now the wind has changed direction and I'll have to leave
Won't you please excuse my frankness but it's not my cup of tea
Holy Moses I have been deceived

I'm going back to the border
Where my affairs, my affairs ain't abused
I can't take any more bad water
I've been poisoned from my head down to my shoes

Holy Moses let us live in peace
Let us strive to find a way to make all hatred cease
There's a man over there what's his color I don't care
He's my brother let us live in peace
He's my brother let us live in peace
He's my brother let us live in peace
Track Name: Drive
Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I cant help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear take the wheel and steer

It's driven me before, it seems to have a vague
Haunting mass appeal
Lately I'm beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there

If I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive
Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive, oh oh

It's driven me before, and it seems to be the way
That everyone else get around
Lately, I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there

Would you choose water over wine
Hold the wheel and drive

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there
Toot toot doo....oh whoa..toot too doo...
Toot toot doo...oh whoa...toot too doo...
Track Name: People Make The World Go Round
Trashmen didn't get my trash today
Oh, why? Because they want more pay
Buses on strike want a raise in fare
So they can help pollute the air

But that's what makes the world go 'round
The up and down, the carousel
Changing people, they'll go around
Go underground, young man
People make the world go 'round

Wall Street losin' dough on ev'ry share
They're blaming it on longer hair
Big men smokin' in their easy chairs
On a fat cigar without a care

But that's what makes the world go 'round
The up and down, the carousel
Changing people, they'll go around
Go underground, young man
People make the world go 'round

(Instrumental break)

But that's what makes the world go 'round
The up and down, the carousel
Changing people, they'll go around
Go underground, young man
People make the world go 'round

People make the world go 'round
People make the world go 'round
People make the world go 'round
Track Name: I Can't Make You Love Me
Turn down the lights;
Turn down the bed.
Turn down these voices
Inside my head.

Lay down with me;
Tell me no lies.
Just hold me close;
Don't patronize.

Don't patronize me.

Chorus:
'Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't.
You can't make your heart feel
Something it won't.
Here in the dark
In these final hours,
I will lay down my heart
And I'll feel the power;
But you won't.
No, you won't.
'Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't.

I'll close my eyes,
Then I won't see
The love you don't feel
When you're holding me.

Morning will come,
And I'll do what's right;
Just give me till then
To give up this fight.

And I will give up this fight.

[Chorus]
Track Name: Killing The Blues
Leaves were falling Just like embers
In colors red and gold they set us on fire
Burning just like a moonbeam in our eyes


CHORUS

Somebody said they saw me
Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud.
Killing the Blues

I am guilty of something
I hope you never do because there is nothing
Sadder than losing yourself in love

CHORUS

CHORUS (SOLO)

Now, you ask me Just to leave you
To go out on my own and get what I need to
You want me to find what I've already had

CHORUS

Somebody said they saw me
Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud
Killing the Blues
