True Meaning Of Love
(R. Berry)

(Oh) Something was callin' my name
Sayin' it clearly
Life was passin' me by
I had this empty feelin'
Without any key
To unlock what was inside

Wound up spendin' nights
As one big fool
It was only time I had to lose

The true meaning of love
Was in your eyes (in your eyes)
The true meaning of love
It's alright baby don't you cry

With every move you made, turn, shake
And soothe
(Oh) The true meaning of love

(Yeah) There was light
There was wrong
Nothin' seemed to hit quite home
There was the good times
Goin' half out of my mind times
All I could do was hold on

Didn't care at all
How things would go
Everything in life
Had left me in the cold

(Then) The true meaning of love
Was in your eyes (in your eyes)
The true meaning of love
It's alright baby don't you cry
With every move made, turn, shake
And soothe

(Oh) The true meaning

I got so tired of runnin' away
I felt like someone different every day
Oh baby, you turned me
Into someone new

The true meaning of love
Was in your eyes (in your eyes)
The true meaning of love
It's alright baby don't you cry
With every move made, turn, shake
And soothe
The true meaning of love


Sleepless Nights
(R. Berry)

You got me isolated
And out of step
Hesitating
Just pussy whipped
Holdin' on for some solution
To what I've become
This mind pollution
You've done me wrong

Oh those sleepless nights
Lyin' here wide awake
Oh those sleepless nights
Something's gonna break

Oh those sleepless nights
She keeps runnin' through my head
And it's getting old justa lyin' here
Thinkin' about what you did
To you it's nothin' lost
And nothin' gained
Bad luck
(Oh) It's all the same

You say "Sex is revolution"
You little tramp
You see what you lose
You'll never get back

Oh those sleepless nights
Lyin' here wide awake
Oh those sleepless nights
Something's gonna break
Oh those sleepless nights
She keeps runnin' through my head
And if you're getting cold
It's a bit too late
Just think about what you did

Can't find a reason to turn it around
It's easier just walkin' away
I thought you'd see there's more to be found
Something to make you stay
It can't be easy when you can't even
Find the time to save
Yourself the pain
Is there anywhere to run?
Is there anywhere to run?

Lyin' here wide awake
Oh those sleepless nights
Something's gonna break
Oh those sleepless nights
She keeps runnin' through my head
And if you're getting old
It's a bit too late

Oh those sleepless nights
Oh those sleepless nights
Oh those sleepless nights
Oh those sleepless nights


Second Chance
(Pihl/Berry)

Well alright, just one more chance
Out with the truth
Open up your hands
I know I know there was other plans
To hide all you do
Stay flat on your back

I won't wait one minute
Tell me now you're finished (Oh)

Alright alright, time to sound good
Look like a winner
Taste like you should
Hold on, hold on,
I might have lost the bet
What's finished is finished, won't give up on you yet

I got too much at stake
There's one more move to make

Second chance - Second chance
Find a way to start it over again
Second chance - Second chance
Don't turn away
What's done is in the past

No time for glory, I am who I am
You fooled me once
That's enough for this man
Not in it for pain, I paid my dues
I'm barely holdin' on
Gotta make your move

You got too much to lose
Now you gotta choose (Oh)

Second chance - Second chance
Find a way to start it over again
Second chance - Second chance
Don't turn away
What's done is in the past
Alright alright
I'll give you one more chance
Cut to the chase, don't wanna fall flat on your face
I know you know
I'd never do you harm
Let you slip through my fingers, I ain't waitin' no more

Second chance - Second chance
Find a way to start it over again
Second chance - Second chance
Don't turn away
What's done is in the past


Turn Around
(Pihl/Berry)

We can talk about religion
And how to play life's game
Why people are barely livin'
Cause the country's gone insane
The economic situation
Destruction of the land
Any why pieces of America
Wind up in Japan

But when we sit down face to face
On matters of the heart
The answers never find a place
Love breaks us right apart

Turn around and walk away
We're done before we start
Turn around and walk away
How do we mend this broken heart
Don't remember what was said
To make you feel that way
Just beginning when it ends
Turn around and walk away

Wrapped in endless conversation
Till it burns inside our head
Are we killing one another
Is Elvis really dead?
Talk immigration acupuncture
Is God really in our heart
The ending of an era
And if television's art

But we can't ever figure out
A life for me and you
The feeling's there without a doubt
But words do not get through

Turn around and walk away
We're done before we start
Turn around and walk away
How do we mend this broken heart
Don't remember what was said
To make you feel that way
Just beginning when it ends
Turn around and walk away

There ain't no getting around it
Oh deep down inside, I know we're right (Yeah)

But when we sit down face to face
On matters of the heart
The answers never find a place
Love breaks us right apart

(Oh) Turn around and walk away
We're done before we start
Turn around and walk away
How do we mend this broken heart
Don't remember what was said

To make you feel that way
Just beginning when it ends
Turn around and walk away

Turn and walk away (Yeah Yeah)
Just turn
Turn-turn walk away
Turn and walk away (Oh)


Rosie's Cantina
(Berry/Pih/Lauser)

Thinkin' about the time you left me in Omaha
That had to be the worst night I ever saw
It rained the night you left
You walked out while I slept
It took me three days to drown myself
Down at Rosie's Cantina

Now I've been down some dusty roads in search of you
A different face with open arms will have to do
I know they're not the same
But honey can you blame me
For trying to fill these empty pages or go insane

Another man would learn to live without you
Another man would just ease the pain
Another man would get up and walk away

This feeling fades away
Cause I'm losin' track of the time in Rosie's Cantina
Another man would learn to live without you
Another man would just ease the pain
Another man would get up and walk away

I never thought in the coming years
I would hold inside so many fears
I always had you
And holding you close
(Oh) Was a safe, so strong
And then suddenly I was so alone
No more nights and no more days
Since you walked away

(Oh) Another man would find his way without you
Another man would not feel the same
Another man could just throw it all away (Throw it all away)

Another man would learn to live without you
Another man would just ease the pain
Another man would get up and walk away (Just walk away)


So All Alone
(Berry/Pihl)

Hide the lies and the secrets
In the dark back room
The minutes pass like hours
But still think it comes too soon
You think they'd both regret it
You'd see it in their eyes
He breaks her heart and forgets it
Don't need no alibi (Oh)

You just passed that fine line
Between love and hate
But maybe now it's about time
To turn and walk away

So all alone
So all alone
Thought love was full of promises
So all alone
So all alone
It doesn't have to be like this
So all alone
So all alone
Gotta make the pieces fit (Oh)

There has to be a reason
Nobody dared to ask
The puzzle's missing pieces
Complete the dirty task

Every eye that saw you
Couldn't really see
There behind excuses
How sad the truth can be (Oh)

No need defending
The life you've come to know
Do you keep pretending
Or just get up and go

So all alone
So all alone
Thought love was full of promises
So all alone
So all alone
It doesn't have to be like this (Yeah)
So all alone
So all alone
Gotta make the pieces fit (Oh)
So all alone
So all alone
There must be more to life than this

It's such a long way
To where we've started and where we've gone
Are we just throwing life away?

(Oh) So all alone
So all alone
Thought love was full of promises
So all alone
So all alone
It doesn't have to be like this
So all alone
So all alone
Gotta make the pieces fit
So all alone
So all alone
There must be more to life than this
(Yeah)


Best Of Me
(Pihl/Berry)

(Oh) I sit here in silence
The words from my pen fall like tears in the rain
A lost lonely island
And man that fears walk forever in pain

How could you deny
I gave you the best of me
For you I would die
Give up every part of me

(Oh) Time is not forgotten
But now it's just pictures and pages of feelings
Inside me still burnin'
The warmth filled the space that's inside me still yearning

How could you deny
I gave you the best of me
For you I would die
Give up every part of me

So in a circle we went round and round
Till that circle shattered and our hearts came tumblin' down (Oh)
Till the end was forever, now it fades
Till you can't hear a sound

Sit here in silence
The words from my pen fall like tears in the rain
A lost lonely island
And man that fears walk forever in pain

How could you deny
I gave you the best of me
For you I would die
Give up every part of me



(The World Is) Changin'
(Berry)

Time moves slow
Some things we'll never know
Have we lost our way?
Can we see a day when

The world is changing
Times are changing
I am changing
Now is the time to break through

Don't look back
(Oh) Never mind what's left
In our tracks
And to feel no shame

What in the world is there to gain
By this, by that
And our hearts just slip
Through the cracks
As we sit, and we sleep
And we wait and we hesitate as

The world is changing
Times are changing
I am changing
Now is the time to break through
(And) The world is changing
Times are changing
I am changing

Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day (yeah)
Before the whole world comes tumbling down
Life is up without a sound
Now should have looked the other way?

(And) The world is changing
Times are changing
I am changing
Now is the time to break through


Endless Nights
(R. Berry)

We used to talk 'bout spending our lives on the streets
(Oh) Those were the good times
Hiding away somewhere in the night
Just you and me, we knew it would be alright
What did this mean when we said goodbye
Why does this cold, lonely feeling get lost by your side

Endless night
We always found ourselves those endless nights
Just pretending that our love was as before
Could we find something more

Now since we've been down different roads
I worked too late then spend most of my time alone
It's not that I don’t like the single life
It's just that it does not compare to what was you and I
And now by giving it one more night
(Oh) If it doesn't come back
We already said our good-byes

Endless nights
We always found ourselves those endless nights
Just pretending that our love was ours before
From the eye within the storm we found a paradise
We both thought we could see paradise
We turned those pages back to how it was before
Could we find something more
Could we find something more

(Oh) Endless nights
We always found ourselves those endless nights
Just pretending that our love was as before
From the eye within the storm we found paradise
We both thought we could see paradise
We turned those pages back to how it was before
Could we find something more


You've Changed
(R. Berry)

How was I to know if I had fallen
You wouldn't catch me
I was always there for you
I didn't know when I was needing
You wouldn't help me
Though all I had given you used

My daddy warned me that the world was tough
But he also said that you would hold me up

I've seen you stumble with no footing
But when you're running
I would always run with you
Don't you think it's funny that you used me
Cause as you knew me
I always believed in you

I thought that we would spend the rest of our lives
Like brothers in arms, together we'd fight

But you've changed
I can't believe that you've changed
And the words I trusted were wrong
So you don't have to say them again

The smiles that could hides a million sins
I won't believe it again
And though you think you're the same
You've changed

(Oh) deep inside a world you were defending
You were pretending that no one really knew me
But in the end you could have told me
I would have only tried to help you through

I thought that we would spend the rest of our lives
Like brothers in arms, together we'd fight

But you've changed
I can't believe that you've changed
And the words I trusted were wrong
So you don't have to say them again

The smiles that could hides a million sins
I won't believe it again
And though you think you're the same
You've changed

You've changed


Hurts So Bad
(R. Berry)

It's not easy livin' in this city
The days are hard and the nights are harder yet
Time passes fast of what a pity
It isn’t finding what will last

But you and I gave it our best

Oh why does it hurt so bad
Given up what we had
Now that the path has led us separate ways
And why does it hurt so bad
Lost is the life we could have had
How did we let those times just slip away

Sometimes the important things just ain't enough
At times they just get in the way
And people that surround you they eat you up
They'll make you half insane from what they say

In a world where feelings fly
We fade away

Oh why does it hurt so bad
Given up what we had
Now that the path has led us separate ways
And why does it hurt so bad
Lost is the life we could have had
How did we let those times just slip away
Keep it all inside
Ain't gonna cry all night
I've had enough of good-byes

But you and I, we gave it our best

Oh why does it hurt so bad
Given up what we had
Now that the path has led us separate ways
And why does it hurt so bad
Lost is the life we could have had
How did we let those times just slip away


Find A Way
(Berry/Fitzgerald)

I sit here writing what I thought was the start of the end
You say that some things must change
But to make us just friends (Oh baby)
Can't find a reason
But I guess I never heard what you said
And now with time alone I just lie here in bed

On my own for so long baby
And now I've opened up my eyes

And we'll find a way
We’ll find a way (Oh yeah)
Now the feeling is right
And I gotta find a way back to you

You have to realize
That a woman needs to deal with the man
Something inside has locked out
Everything that tries to get out
Every move, every day
Try to hold onto what I have
Try to think 'bout what the future brings
And look back on where I've been

I've made you wait for so long baby
And now you're hurt inside

But we'll find a way
Find a way (Oh yeah)
Now the feeling is right
And I gotta find a way back to you
Oh find a way
We'll find a way (Oh yeah)
But we'll find a way

You get tired of hearin' those maybes
Kept believin' it would be alright
Still reachin' for the good life baby
Runnin' out of time
Have to draw the line

(Oh) we'll find a way
We’ll find a way (Oh yeah)
Now the feeling is right
And I gotta find a way back to you
