When You Love Someone

There's a cold wind, I feel it blowin'
I'm lost before I start
There's a woman, without me knowin'
With a circle, a circle around my heart

It's no use in fighting
What took hold of me sight unseen

Chorus:
It's unfair, when you love someone
Reason fails, and your feelings rule
The will is weak, but the pull is strong
When you love someone

There's a feeling of lost control
And it's got me scared as hell
But the one thing that keeps me goin'
I keep lookin' for someone to break this spell
There's no easy answers
Nothin' is ever in black or white

(Chorus)

When you love someone

(Chorus)


Turn This Love Around

We headed down a little known road
For the one that would take us to our dreams
Which way to turn's not an easy thing to learn
And the road wasn't always what it seemed

But everyday there's a little more light
That gives us hope thru the middle of the night
This road is ours to the end

Chorus:
Now, before you leave
Let's take tomorrow and turn this love around
Without you where would I be
We've got tomorrow to turn this love around

Starting out there was never any doubt
All the answers rested in your hand
But then later on, I could see that hope was gone
Now I wonder if you really understand

We burned our bridges quickly as we crossed
Where something's gained there's a little bit gets lost
This love is ours to defend

(Chorus)

We headed down a little known road
For the one that would take us to our dreams
Which way to turn's not an easy thing to learn
And the road wasn't always what it seemed

But everyday there's a little more light
That gives us hope thru the middle of the night
This road is ours to the end

(Chorus)


Someday

I heard about that little rift you had last night
I could have told you that boy was never Mr. Right
If it were me I'd have given it to you without a fight
'Cause you've always been the one

You say right now you're not lookin' for another guy
Since the last one went off and left you high and dry
I understand we all need some time to cry
I just want to be around
When you finally settle down and get over him

Chorus:
If you'll be there someday girl
I wouldn't leave(hurt) you for the world
Could(won't) you say you'll be there someday girl

You should know that if I had a say
I would never see you treated that way
I'd be lovin' I'd be faithful every day, I would never let you fall
I know it hurt to give him back his ring

Sometimes love can be a painful thing
But I also know the happiness it brings, when you find that special one
If you let me I would be the world around your sun

(Chorus)

I know that maybe now is too soon and you need some time alone
But when you're ready to talk I'm as close as the phone

I know you're tired of bein' tossed around
And you don't need someone tryin' to pin you down
I just want to say I'll always be around, and I'll never let you down
Someday, someway, somehow,

I want your love but I'll be happy for now
Just to hear you say you'll keep me in mind
I'll be waiting for the time
When the clouds break and the sun begins to shine again

(Chorus)


Violent Days

Was it me you were gunning for
I looked around for the sound as I hit the floor
Thought I saw you standin' by the door just before you slipped away
Bad days only lie ahead, we shot it out and our love was left for dead
Would you rather it was me instead, is this the only way

Chorus:
What can I say, these are violent days, violent days
Love slips away, these are violent days, violent days

And so we find that we can't go on
Pack a bag and you head out on the run

Move by night to elude the sun and avoid the light of day
It wasn't love we were running from
We gave in to what we thought was a different drum
Take a look at what it's become, it's sad but it's the truth

(Chorus)

Is anybody old enough to remember when
This division and doubt won out and the loneliness began
Some say it's just the turn of the dice
Others say we should be willing to sacrifice
Think it over but don't think twice, don't let it spoil your day

(Chorus)


Change for Change

Yeah, you want a change you say, so you think that you got a bad deal
You found love but you'd throw it away for another turn of the wheel

Chorus:
You're better by far, right where you are

Now you see the light, it's not a crime to do what you feel
You thought you were sentenced to life but you know you're out on appeal

(Chorus)

What could be wrong reaching beyond, tomorrow is another day
It's time to move on you're feeling strong, or are you really running away
Change for it that's your aim
You're bound to lose what you thought you'd gain
And in the end it's all the same, just another turn of the wheel

(Chorus)


One In A Million

They say love is blind, and I feel like I've been wasting my time
I gave you everything, I was proud to call you mine
Thinkin' I would be treated in kind
One in a million is what I thought I had
But I changed my opinion when you treated me so bad

Chorus:
Now(and) it's time to lay our cards out on the table
And it looks like the writing is on the wall
So(and) baby when you feel we can get to something real
Give me a call

Some say love's in vain
Now it looks like we're gonna prove them right again
You thought you could get away with flaunting my name
Knowin' I would love you just the same
One in a million is what you were to me
But now my eyes have been opened and I don't like what I see

(Chorus)

One in a million is what you were to me
Now my eyes have been opened and I don't like what I see

(Chorus)


Given You Up For Dead

I remember everything, as if it were yesterday
The cruel words you had for me on the night you went away
You said it'd be a cold day in hell the next time that I'd see your face
So I took you at your word, and found someone to take your place yeah

Chorus:
Just when I thought I'd given you up for dead
I've been doin' just fine since you left my bed
I'd given you up for dead
('Cause I believed every word you said)
And now you're back in my life again

We were so good for so long, or so it appeared to me
The love that I thought was strong, the hold that you held on me
Then you say you're not satisfied, what am I supposed to do
Except to get on with my life, pick up and find someone new

(Chorus)

(Repeat)


Don't Wait

I guess you thought you had it made
I must have seemed like every day was another game
But now it seems you've found a pearl
She's not like any other girl and you're blown away
You never were the one to give your heart away
You've always had your fun, but you may be sorry someday

Don't wait to tell her how you feel
Don't wait to show her you're for real
'Cause it won't bee too long 'til she gets restless
And she may be gone

You were the big man in town
Set 'em up and bed 'em down they were all the same
But this one's got the better of you
And now you're wonderin' what you've gotta do to make her say

Don't wait and let her slip away, don't say tomorrow's another day
'Cause it won't bee too long 'til she gets lonely, and she may be gone
Don't let her slip away
'Cause she may get lonely and be gone someday

Two hearts are better than one
And now it's time that you've begun to learn to change
Good things come to those who wait
But please don't hesitate, you can only gain

You'll never find love, 'til you give it away
If you can't give enough you may be sorry someday
Try not to wait too long 'case she may get restless
And she'll be gone

Don't wait, don't wait


Talk To Me

Back when you always used to say I was the silent type
Keepin' in every little thing I would slowly find that you sure were right
But since then I'm a freer man 'cause I listened to you
Now I find the tide is slowly turning and the foot is on the other shoe

Chorus:
Oh baby, tell me what you feel
I wanna know baby, is this love we have for real
Oh baby, tell me what you need
I wanna know talk to me

Some days everything is great you've got your head on tight
Next day everything has changed 'til I don't know if it's day or night
It's so hard tryin' to decipher what goes on in your mind
Baby give it up,

There's something you can do that would save us both a whole lot of time

(Chorus)

(Repeat)

Oh baby
Talk to me


Don't Lead Me On

I'm tired of waiting, for you to say you'll be mine
I'm tired of facing you, to hear you say these things take time
I was a rolling stone until you changed my ways
Now I know where I belong, don't you feel the same

Don't lead me on baby, don't lead me on now
Don't lead me on

I'm tired of chasing you over hill and over dale
I thought I was pacing you, but then you threw me off your trail
All I want is the same from you, as what you get from me
Why can't we see this thru, must you disagree

(Chorus)

Ooh don't lead me on

I'm so tired but I gotta stay strong
After all I've waited so long
To find me a lover I could give my life to
I'd have nothin' if I didn't have you

I'm tired of wasting yours and my sweet precious time
I'm tired of tasting tears that should have been shed and dried
I hoped that maybe someday we'd look back and we both could laugh
But as for now you've left me cold and broke in half

(Chorus)


Dangerous

Call my name
Said the singer to the plane
I can't control my feelings
I'm like a moth to your flame

And when you're standing by my side
I'm proud as a man can be

Chorus:
It's getting dangerous (It's getting dangerous)
Mmm, you're so dangerous
I'm a man in lust (You're so dangerous)
And I love what you do to me

I don't need a thing
Except for me to know that I'm your man
The way you make me feel
Is better than money in my hand

Ooh baby
I'm just like putty to your touch
I can't keep from beaming
Because I love you so much

And baby when you're by my side
I'm proud as a man can be

(Chorus)

Oh, you're so dangerous!
Oh, you're so dangerous!

Ooh baby
I'm just like putty to your touch
I can't keep from beaming
Because I love you so much

And baby when you're by my side
I'm proud as a man can be

(Chorus) x2
