    Break No More Hearts

    You know I love the way your eyes look when your crying

    But your so much more beautiful when your smiling

    When your smiling feel like I just took off flying

    Higher than an airplane faster then you can say my name

    So sometimes I holler at you babe

    You counter and before too long

    The whole thing's come undone

    Don’t want to break no more hearts

    Don’t want to have my heart broken no more

    Too old to make a brand new start

    Gone too far just to let it fall apart

    We still got the feeling we still got the flow won’t be the fool that let you go

    Now you’re just putting on a show acting like a child
    You know anything you want you want come take it you want games why fake it

    You want war then lets just break it but if you want love still can make it

    So sometimes I holler at you baby
    You counter and before to long
    The whole things come undone


    Don’t want to break no more hearts
    
Don’t want to have my heart broken no more
    
Too old to make a brand new start

    Gone too far just to let it fall apart

    I lose my temper and I don’t know why
    
There’s nothing I can say that would justify
    
I lose my temper and I don’t know why

    Nothing I can say that would justify

    Don’t want to break no more hearts

    Don’t want to have my heart broken no more
    
Too old to make a brand new start

    Gone too far just to let it fall apart

    Don’t want to break no more hearts

    Don’t want to have my heart broken no more

    Too old to make a brand new start

    Gone too far just to let it fall apart

    Good Man Bad

    soaked in gasoline and your gaze is like a match
    show me what you mean Im tired of figuring out your pass word
    lying there like you some river winding through some dessert land
    passing me on by like Im just another grain of sand

    you make a good man want to get bad
    you make a poor man wish he had
    you could drive a sane man mad
    you could make a good man bad

    so many faces in this room but you’re the only one that matters
    and I know Im gonna only want you more with every moment
    here after standing there like you the only island amiss some raging sea
    keeping me at bay like Im some water on the levy

    you make a good man want to get bad
    you make a poor man wish he had
    you could drive a sane man mad
    you could make a good man bad
    you make a good man want to get bad
    you make a poor man wish he had
    you could drive a sane man mad
    you could make a good man bad

    Love Come Quick

    my hearts a desert island
    going to take some finding
    but its hear and its ready to go
    coming to you from somewhere in the deep blue
    trying so hard now to make it through this universe
    somewhere there's got to be the first
    got water all around but I'm dying of thirst

    Oh baby Love come quick
    Don't you trip as your walking through my door
    Love be strong
    Lift me up now child and carry me along

    my loves an untold story
    I want some blood and glory
    I been searching now ever since my mama bore me
    come to me straight babe shoot from the hip
    don't you come any closer if your going to give me the slip
    your lip a fingertip i wont let you drip
    reach out your hand darling give me a sip

    Love come quick
    Don't you trip as your walking through my door
    Love be strong
    Lift me up now child and carry me along

    I got my tongue gets all twisted in my mouth
    words trying to get out
    my tongue gets all twisted in my mouth
    but sometimes you just got to shout...LOVE........

    Oh baby Love come quick
    Don't you trip as your walking through my door
    Love be strong
    Lift me up now child and carry me along
    Love come quick
    Don't you trip as your walking through my door
    Love be strong
    Lift me up now child and carry me along

    Just a Game (Better Played & Lost)

    Love is just a game of tag and your it
    the planets turn and the balance shifts in my direction
    now your vying for some of my attention
    its all part of the natural selection

    Love is just a game babe
    You’re never going to win
    You can drowned in your tears like a little child
    But you better just keep on swimming
    You might feel some pain.....but its still a Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost

    Love is just a game of tag and Im it
    the planets move and the balance shifts in your direction
    now Im needing some of your affection
    the rule and not the exception....is that

    Love is just a game babe
    You’re never going to win
    You can hide away your heart if you want to
    But I say just keep on giving
    You might feel some pain.....but its still a
    Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost

    And it don’t matter if you win or lose....what it comes down to
    Is you gonna lose even if you win....cause the game of love is played within

    Love is just a game babe
    You’re never going to win
    Stand on the side lines if you want to
    But I say just keep on living
    You might feel some pain.....but its still a
    Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost

    Baby be still so I can kiss you...in the end I know im only going to miss you...I miss you baby
    Baby be still so I can kiss you...in the end I know im only going to miss you...I miss you baby
    Game better played and lost... Never going to win you know you can never......
    Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost
    Then never played at all...............!

    Only Human

    Whirl wind swirling round my brain again
    Don’t think I’ll ever be the way I’ve been
    Since you’ve been around
    The heat wave my mind is just your bodies slave
    Since you’ve been spinning me round and round and round

    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human after all

    Freight train racing through my veins again
    Don’t think I’ll ever be the way I’ve been
    Since you’ve been around
    The freak show I just take the punches blow by blow since you’ve been laying me down and down and down

    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human after all

    I’ve always been waiting for the moment to pass
    Clutching my fingertips in my grasp
    Sitting on my ass
    But I can do all I say and say all I do but when its all been said and done

    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human(4X)

    I'm just as Human as a man can be..........
    I'm only(2X)
    I'm only(2X)
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    When its all been said and done, I'm only Human

    Man & Woman You & Me

    Long before the world began
    It was just you and me women and man
    And before the things you think you see
    It was just a man and a women you and me

    Wont give up on you
    I wont give up on you
    I wont give up how could I just give you up

    Long before the world began
    There wasn’t anything I needed I couldn’t hold right in the palm of my hand
    And before the things you think you need to be
    It was just a man and a women you and me man and a women you and me

    Wont give up on you
    I wont give up on you
    I wont give up how could I just give you up
    Wont give up on you
    I wont give up on you
    I wont give up how could I just give you up

    And when all this has come to pass
    And that final grain of sand has just slipped through the hour glass
    And the land gets swallowed up by the sea
    There’s going to be a man & women(3X)
    Man and women you and me YOU AND ME(2X)

    Won’t give up on you
    Won’t give up on you
    I don’t want you to
    Wont’ give up on you
    Won’t give up on you
    Won’t give up on you
    Won’t give up on you

    Long before the world began
    There was a time when
    We didn’t need anything more then
    Each other women and man
    But as far as I can see It will always be
    Man and women you and me
    Man and women you and me

    Steam Locomotive Train

    sorry I do
    sorry I don’t
    I say I will when I know that I won’t
    sorry for love
    sorry for pain
    but there ain’t one without the other they just one and the same

    sorry I condemn
    sorry I condone
    I like your friends but Im more comfortable alone
    sorry for this
    sorry for that
    but my head ain’t one size fits all for all your different size hats

    I isn’t what you is and I ain’t what they are
    And darling I don’t think were going to get very far now

    Im just moving slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    moving slow towards love cause true love is worth the wait

    sorry for pity
    sorry for pride
    I keep my emotions all locked up inside
    sorry Im loose
    sorry Im tight
    sometimes I when I don’t want to and then I can’t when I try

    I isn’t what you is and I ain’t what they are
    And darling I don’t think were going to get very far now

    Im just moving slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    moving slow towards love cause true love is worth the wait

    sorry I do
    sorry I don’t
    I say I will when I know that I won’t
    sorry for yes
    sorry for no
    but the floors been growing higher and the ceiling look low

    I isn’t what you is and I ain’t what they are
    And darling I don’t think were going to get very far now

    Im just moving slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    moving slow towards love cause true love is worth the wait

    I Cry For You

    lying all alone holding the phone
    like it’s a baby talking to myself
    ain’t talking to no one else but my baby
    and I don’t know why I should cry for you

    summer turns to fall I haven’t moved at all
    Im so damn lazy don’t even recognize myself
    acting like someone else I must be crazy
    and I don’t know why I should cry for you....but I do

    waiting by the door don’t know what Im waiting for
    just thought maybe’ you’d be coming back
    back to your senses baby
    and I don’t know why I should cry

    you never cooked a single meal
    you never asked me how I feel
    but your were oh oh so real
    you were oh so real so real
    and I don’t know why I should cry for you.......
    but I do yeah I do...........!
    I cry for you

    Good To Be In Love

    two hearts beating together
    two mouths saying words like forever
    two bodies that get like one just as soon as that working day gets done
    And it started with lust but now its beyond that no turning back

    it feels so good to be in love again
    it had been so long since I could let one in
    darling were you been all this time time without you
    good to be in love
    to have someone that cant stop thinking of
    for the first time in a long time Im seeing

    two minds of a similar thought
    I tried to slip by but my heart got caught on to you lover
    two people one to each other
    and it started by chance a casual encounter
    but then the more I saw the more I wanted her

    it feels so good to be in love again
    it had been so long since I could let one in
    darling were you been all this time time without you
    good to be in love
    to have someone that cant stop thinking of
    for the first time in a long time Im seeing

    you with a smile cross your face
    leaving your mark all over my space
    we gonna shed our share of tears
    knows I can be a hard man to please
    I get hung up on things that don’t really matter
    but then you give me light and then you give me laughter
    darling where you been

    good to be in love again
    it feels so good to be in love again
    it had been so long since I could let one in
    darling were you been all this time time without you
    good to be in love
    to have someone that cant stop thinking of
    for the first time in a long time Im seeing ain’t it
    good to be in love ain’t it
    good to be in love ain’t it
    good to be in love ain’t it
    good to be in love

    Hand Over Your Heart

    say you’ll stay with me tonight and for tonight I’ll be alright
    if I could see you smile I’d be ok for a while

    hand over your heart now baby and then we’ll come
    speaking of love now baby lets make some
    why don’t we make some

    say you’ll stay with me today and for today I’ll be ok
    if I could look in your eyes I’d be alright for a time

    hand over your heart now baby and then we’ll come
    speaking of love now baby lets make some
    why don’t we make some

    And in the morning when we rise
    Like the new day I greet you
    Before we say our good byes
    Why don’t we just give it a run through

    hand over your heart and then we’ll come
    speaking of children now baby lets make some
    hand over your heart your warmer then the sun
    speaking of love now baby why don’t we make some
    tell me why.....don’t we make some

    And if its only for a while
    And if its only for a while
    A while better than no time at all
    And if its only for a while
    And if its only for a while
    A while better than no time at all

    I won’t lie...I won’t cheat...I’ll be the hand that feeds you, that thing you need...
    I won’t...I won’t ..I won’t hurt you baby
    you just got to hold on to me

    And if its only for a while
    And if its only for a while
    A while’s still better than no time at all
