Do You See Me ?

There's a photograph hanging on the wall
A frame in the shape of a heart
Won't let that picture fall
Another place, another time
It's so hard for you to believe
I left that place behind

Well I'm standing in front of you now
Right here, tonight

Do you see me? (Can you really see?)
Do you see me as I am?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me when I speak?
Open up your eyes tonight
Before the tears start to fall
Love is no more than any photograph on the wall

The years get swept like dust by a broom
And memories burn like a flame
Inside an empty room
I need to make new memories now
But you want to keep me in yours
As if you could somehow

Do you want some prisoner of time?
Or someone to love?

Do you see me? (Can you really see?)
Do you see me as I am?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me when I speak?
Listen to my voice tonight
And let the words find your heart
There is nothing but your fear to keep us apart

(Time) Time can be a master thief
With no conscience it seems
(Don't) Don't become a victim again
Forever chasing endless dream

Do you see me?
Do you see me as I am?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me when I speak?

 

 Talk To Me

Would you mind
If I held you
Would you mind
Or would you tell me not to
Would you mind
Breaking rules with me
Would you mind
Or would you rather let us be.....

Too long waiting around
Just to get my lips on you
Too long waiting around
To let you out, let you slip, in and out my fingertips

Talk to me
I don't really know you
Talk to me
Come on and make a sound
Talk to me
Need to get to know you
Talk to me
Don't play me around

Would you mind
Me comin' over
Would you mind
Or are you out with Casanova
Would you mind
If I telephoned
Would you mind
We really need to talk alone

Too long waiting around
Just to get my lips on you
Too long waiting around
To let you out, let you slip, in and out my fingertips

Talk to me
I don't really know you
Talk to me
Come on and make a sound
Talk to me
Need to get to know you
Talk to me
Don't play me around

Come on girl and talk to me
Oh I need to see you smile
We don't need no wedding ring
We just need to talk for a little while

Too long waiting around
Just to get my lips on you
Too long waiting around
To let you out, let you slip, in and out my fingertips

 

One Last Dance

As I look into your eyes
And tell you how I've been
I still can't find the words to say
What I really feel within
I guess I'll keep pretending
That everything is fine
And act as if I'm over you
And that you never cross my mind

But if my heart beats wild when I'm close to you
Will you see the spark in my eyes
Before we say
Our goodbye's

Don't you hear the music that we dance to
Since we missed our chance
Share the moments that we plan to
Can one dance do any harm
Baby won't you hold me like you used to
Forget I ever knew you
If it happens that I lose you
This one dance will keep you close to my heart

I've missed your tender touch
I've dreamed of being here
But even sweetest dreams
You'd always disappear

So I can't be sure what you're lookin' for
Or expect forever again
When even tonight
Has to end

Don't you hear the music that we dance to
Since we missed our chance
Share the moments that we plan to
Can one dance do any harm
Baby won't you hold me like you used to
Forget I ever knew you
If it happens that I lose you
This one dance will keep you close to my heart

Memories, I tossed away
Returned as good as new
So how can I just walk away
From one last dance with you
When even now..... I'm still in love with you

I can't stop thinking we're meant to be
More than old friends meeting tonight
And the light in your eyes
Says I'm right

Don't you hear the music that we dance to
Since we missed our chance
Share the moments that we plan to
Can one dance do any harm
Baby won't you hold me like you used to
Forget I ever knew you
If it happens that I lose you
This one dance will keep you close to my heart

 

Puppet On A String

What a crazy game, I can't use your name
In this atmosphere
A class conscious click, everybody lives slick
You ain't accepted here

But I'll be your Puppet on a string
Just for a chance to be your everything
This life ain't nothin' if I'm not with you
And I give it all up, and this is what I'll do

I'll change my situation
Leave materialization
For you
This is what I'm gonna do
Change my circulation
Leave extravagation
For you
Don't need, don't want, don't need nothin' nothin' more

(Rap)

I got no money, I got no yacht
I can't compete with what your friends got
But if it's love that your talkin' today
Then take my hand and let's slip away

This prejudice place, will never embrace
Anything but their own
They're stuck on the thought, that's everything's bought
And you don't bring strange boys home

But I'll be your Puppet on a string
Just for a chance to be your everything
My friends may not see what I see in you
But I'll give'em all up, and this is what I'll do

I'll change my situation
Leave materialization
For you
This is what I'm gonna do
Change my circulation
Leave extravagation
For you
Don't need, don't want, don't need nothin' nothin' more

(Rap)

Too raw
And too cold
All your family and your friends
Live in the "Days Of Old"

But I'll be your Puppet on a string
Just for a chance to be your everything
This life ain't nothin' if I'm not with you
And I give it all up, and this is what I'll do

I'll change my situation
Leave materialization
For you
This is what I'm gonna do
Change my circulation
Leave extravagation
For you
Don't need, don't want, don't need nothin' nothin' more

 

Somewhere In Jamaica

Every single morning
I'd go through all my clothes
I'd brush my teeth and comb my hair
And put on my Dad's cologne
I'd leave the house real early
And get to school on time
I'd go and sit in homeroom class
And ditch the place by 9

We'd meet outside the churchyard
Underneath the willow tree
The place where we had carved our names
And talked about our dreams
We shared the same desite
To run away from home
To go and find a secret place
Where we could be alone

Somewhere in Jamaica
Maybe in Brazil
On top a little mountain
Beside a grassy hill
Somewhere in Djakarta
Or a Polynesian Sea
It really didn't matter where
If she was there with me

We went around in circles
About our crazy plan
And talked about our parents
How they'd never understand
But it really didn't matter
We were takin' off from home
We knew what we were looking for
A secret place where we could be alone

Somewhere in Jamaica
Maybe in Brazil
On top a little mountain
Beside a grassy hill
Somewhere in Djakarta
Or a Polynesian Sea
Underneath a Waterfall
Or a Euciliptus Tree

Somewhere in Morroco
Maybe in Peru
In a Costa Rican Jungle
Or in a small canoe
Somewhere in Malaysia
Or maybe Mosambeek
It really didn't matter where
If she was there with me

Oh how we wished we were older
Sailing through Montego bay
Just like the Birds we would fly
Fly to a place far away

Somewhere in Jamaica
Maybe in Brazil
On top a little mountain
Beside a grassy hill
Somewhere in Djakarta
Or a Polynesian Sea
Underneath a Waterfall
Or a Euciliptus Tree

Somewhere in Morroco
Maybe in Peru
In a Costa Rican Jungle
Or in a small canoe
Somewhere in Malaysia
Or maybe Mosambeek
It really didn't matter where
If she was there with me

I wonder what she's doing
Does she ever think of me
And all the dreams that we once shared
Beneath the Willow Tree

 

Waiting For Your Love

There you go again
Walking down that old familiar street
You walk like a conquering hero
With the world at your feet

(Do you think that I will be here, waiting for you?)
Do you think I'll be here?
Do you think that I'll be waiting for your love?

I know there must be others
I know I'm not alone
I know that someone else is waiting for you
You never have to worry
You'll never be alone
You know that someone else is waiting for your love

So here I am tonight
Staring at the street outside my door
I wonder where it has taken you
Like so many nights before

(Do you think that I will be here, waiting for you?)
Do you think I'll be here?
Do you think that I'll be waiting for your love?

I know there must be others
I know I'm not alone
I know that someone else is waiting for you
You never have to worry
You'll never be alone
You know that someone else is waiting for your love

And if I tried to follow you
It would be like walking on broken glass
Every step would tear at my heart
I just can't take that chance

(Do you think that I will be here, waiting for you?)
Do you think I'll be here?
Do you think that I'll be waiting for your love?

I know there must be others
I know I'm not alone
I know that someone else is waiting for you
You never have to worry
You'll never be alone
You know that someone else is waiting for your love

 

If Only

Everytime I think about it
Something strong comes over me
Never will I live to doubt it
That you and I were simply meant to be

How could we have given up so easy
When we had so much worth fighting for

If only we had worked it out together
Through it all
If only we talked a little longer
And broken down the walls
If only we had held each other tighter
You'd might still be with me

Everytime I dream about it
I picture what we should have done
But how can I forget it
When life with you had only just begun

Now I sit alone thinkin' about us
Wondering where we would have been today

If only we had worked it out together
Through it all
If only we talked a little longer
And broken down the walls
If only we had held each other tighter
You'd might still be with me

I don't know if I can take it anymore
I'm fighting on for you, but I'm losing the war
So tell me what I should do
To get back inside of you
Once again

If only we had worked it out together
Through it all
If only we talked a little longer
And broken down the walls
If only we had held each other tighter
You'd might still be with me

 

 Everything You Do

Holding you tonight
I can't help but lose control
The fire behind your eyes
Burns right into my soul

Your hands, your heart
Are the only things I feel
The way that you're touching me
I'd swear this dream wasn't real

Everything you do, everything you say
Everything that you are
Makes me want to run, makes me want to hide
Makes me want to love you
Shining like a light, burning in the night
Burning up together
You can be the first, you can be the last
You can be forever

I can't seem to find
The right words for this affair
Nothing really matters
Just as long as you're there

I can't stop this heart
From pounding in my ears
If I could survive this night
There'll be nothing left to fear

Everything you do, everything you say
Everything that you are
Makes me want to run, makes me want to hide
Makes me want to love you
Shining like a light, burning in the night
Burning up together
You can be the first, you can be the last
You can be forever

Maybe I'm just a fool
Fooling with romance
Mistaking love for lies
But I'm ready to take the chance

Everything you do, everything you say
Everything that you are
Makes me want to run, makes me want to hide
Makes me want to love you
Shining like a light, burning in the night
Burning up together
You can be the first, you can be the last
You can be forever
