Amanda


Babe, tomorrow's so far away
There's something I just have to say
I don't think I can hide what I'm feelin' inside
Another day, knowin' I love you

And I-I'm getting too close again
I don't want to see it end
If I tell you tonight
Will you turn out the light
And walk away knowin' I love you?

Chorus:
I'm gonna take you by surprise and make you realize, Amanda
I'm gonna tell you right away, I can't wait another day, Amanda
I'm gonna say it like a man and make you understand, Amanda


I love you

And, I feel like today's the day
I'm lookin' for the words to say
Do you wanna be free, are you ready for me
To feel this way?
I don't wanna lose you

So, it may be too soon I know
The feeling takes so long to grow
If I tell you today will you turn me away
And let me go?
I don't wanna lose you

(Chorus)

You and I-I know that we can't wait
And I swear-I swear it's not a lie girl
Tomorrow may be too late
You-you and I girl
We can share a life together
It's now or never
And tomorow may be too late

And, feelin' the way I do
I don't wanna wait my whole life through
To say I'm in love with you


We're Ready

I'm ready for more
The feelin' now that I'm beside you
We'll open the door
Do anything that we decide to

And I know that there's something that's just out of sight
And I feel like I'm finally seeing the light
Holdin' on girl-I know it's right
I know it's right

We're ready!


You and I will find a reason
To simplify a change of season
And I feel like it's time we were off on our way
We can go so much farther than we've come today
Holdin' on girl and come what may
Come what may

We're ready!
C'mon
We can find a way

We're ready now
Catchin' a wave to ride on
Steady now
Headin' where we decide on

And I know that there's something that's just out of sight
And I feel like we're trying to do something right
Come on make it if we hold on tight
Hold on tight

We're ready!


We're ready, yeah yeah
We're ready, oooh

We're ready
We're ready

We're ready, 1...2...3...4...

We can find a way

We're ready now, oooh we're ready now

We're ready now

(Instrumental)

A-Countdown
B-Ignition
C-Third stage separation


Cool the Engines

Now I like takin' off
Don't like burnin' out
Every time you turn it on
Makes me want to shout
We keep getting hotter
Movin' way too fast
If we don't slow this fire down
We're not gonna last

Cool the engines
Red line's gettin' near
Cool the engines
Better take it out of gear


I'm no fool
I'm gonna keep it cool
and take it day by day
We won't know where we might go
'Till we take it all the way

Take me for a ride
Take me all the way
Take me where I've never been
Someplace I can stay
Don't get yourself too hot
Don't get yourself too high
If we don't take it easy now
We can kiss it all goodbye

Cool the engines
Slow this rocket down
Cool the engines
Why don't ya take a look around


I'm no fool, gonna keep it cool
Take it day by day
We won't know where we might go
'Till we take it all the way

Cool the engines
Cool the engines
Goin' over the line
Goin' off the dial
Runnin' out of time
And it's gettin' wild


Got flashin' lights
Goin' 'round and 'round
Until we get it right
Better cool it down
Better cool it down

Cool the engines

And now we're on our way
No need to hurry just to get from day to day
And I, oooh, I know
We don't have to run that hard to get where we can go

Cool the engines

Cool the engines down

Cool the engines

Cool the engines down


My Destination

And
Feelin' the way I do
Wouldn't last a mile without you
When I'm losin' the way, the things that you say
Take me there
My destination
My destination
Is by your side
Right by your side

And I
I've taken so long, I know
Never had so far to go
It's not where you can be, it's what you can see
That takes you there
Your destination

Your destination
It's here inside, right here inside


A New World

Instrumental


To Be a Man

What does it take to be a man?
What does it take to see
It's all heart and soul
A gentle hand?
So easy to want and so hard to give
How can you be a man
'Till you see beyond the life you live?
Oh, what does it take to be a man?

We can be blind, but a man tries to see
It takes tenderness
For a man to be what he can be
And what does it mean
If you're weak or strong?
A gentle feelin'
can make it right or make it wrong
What does it take to be a man?

The will to give and not receive
The strength to say what you believe
The heart to feel what others feel inside
To see what they can see

A man is somethin' that's real
It's not what you are
It's what you can feel
It can't be too late
To look through the hate and see
I know that's what a man can be


I Think I Like It

Somethin' changin' for me inside
Took a long time
Now there's nothin' for me to hide
I say what's on my mind
Changes, makin' me see the light
I finally see wrong from right
Now I can see every sign

Oooh, I think I like it
I think I like what I'm feelin'
Even though it's such a surprise
But you know
Oooh, I think I really like it
I think I like what I feel
And changes really open your eyes


Oh, look at the world we make
What have we begun?
People livin' for what they take
All for number one
Changes makin' me see the light
I finally see the light
I finally see wrong from right
Now that it's all said and done

Oooh, I think I like it
I think I like what I'm feelin'
Even though it's such a surprise
But you know
Oooh, I think I really like it
I think I like what I feel
And changes really open your eyes


Oh doesn't love say enough
When you realize?
People try to come on so tough
All to fantasize
Changes takin' me through the night
I finally see the light
I've opened my eyes
Those changes can open you eyes


Can'tcha Say (You Believe in Me) / Still in Love

Can'tcha say you believe in me?
Can'tcha see what you mean to me?

Everyday I think of you
You're on my mind
Some things in the past
Are better left behind
Every night I dream of you
The images as clear as day

Chorus:
Can'tcha say you believe in me?
Can'tcha say you believe in me?
You know that where there's a will there's a way
Can'tcha say you believe in me?
Can't you see what it means to me?
Don't leave me alone tonight
'Cause I still love you


We've had our time apart
And I knew right from the start
I could never change
The way I feel about you baby
We can sit here all night long
And separate the right from the wrong
But love won't wait

(Chorus)

Ooohh, still in love with you
You know I need you baby, to stand by me
Can't you see I need you, baby
Oooh, I'm still in love with you

(Chorus)

I love you

Ooohh, still in love with you
You know I need you baby, to stand by me
Can't you see I need you, baby
Oooh, I'm still in love with you

(Chorus)

I love you


Hollyann

In my mind
I can see reminders of a past decade
So far behind
Like the shadows linger at the close of day
And we could see
We were timeless dreamers of another day
And we were free
In a dawning age we had so much to say

Oooh, the nights you came to me
A bluejean lady so eager to be free
And the wind in your long hair blowin' as we stood for the band

Oh, Hollyann

Chorus:
Hollyann
We made the dark into light
We saw the wrong and the right
We were for life
And we would never concede it


Hollyann
We left the world behind
A million hands gave the sign
We held the line
Can you believe it?
Hollyann

Hollyann

We could live
Just to turn the world into our fantasy
And we could give
Aquarius was really meant to be

You and I we were there to see the dawn
Side by side we had love to carry on
And I still hear guitars in the air as we sat in the sand

Oh, Hollyann

(Chorus)
