DON'T CRY FOR ME

Ah ah ah...
Don't cry for me
'Cause there's one thing I found out
I can live without you every day
& I'm better off with you far away from me

Ah ah ah...
Don't break your heart
Thinkin' you have let me down
In the light of day I can see what's real
& now I know what I really feel for you

(x2):
Ah ah ah...
If I'm wrong, you can smile & say I told you so
But I've got that feelin' that I found that you can lie, so
Don't cry for me
You will only waste your time
Thinkin' I'm in tears, for you're here no more
But the tears won't come, & I'll cry no more for you

Ah ah ah...









I CAN'T MAKE UP MY MIND

I can't make up my mind; someone has to help me
I never seem to know what to do; I just can't decide for myself
She has told me in so many words that she's still in love with me
& she wants me back, she wants me back with her again

CHORUS:
She said, "Why don't you come back home to me?
Why don't you come back, come back where you belong?
I need you here
Why don't you come back home to me?
Why don't you come back, come back where you belong?
I want you by my side"

Someone show me which way to go; I need guiding in my choice
Of what to do; someone has to help me

(instrumental)

(repeat chorus & last verse)







YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO GOOD

You don't need any reason, do you baby?
Surely you should know that by now
But if you need a reason, I'll give one to you:
You make me feel good, you make me feel good

I don't need any reason when I hold you
I never do ask myself why
But if you need a reason, I'll give one to you:
You make me feel good, you make me feel good

CHORUS:
So good, so good, don't have to justify
Why I feel so good, so good, so good
Never thought could be so good to me

(instrumental)

But if you need a reason, I'll give one to you:
You make me feel good, you make me feel good

(repeat chorus & verse 1)








THE KIND OF GIRL

The kind of girl who says to me she doesn't want my love
Is not the kind of girl that you tell me I should be thinking of
But more of that another day
I've found another child to share with me
All of the pleasures that you've enjoyed

But don't you think that you're forgiven for taking her away
For if it hadn't been for your deceit, I'd be holding her today

(x2):
You think you've got everything
Just because you hold her in your arms & squeeze her tight
Don't you understand that she runs away
With anyone who happens in her sight
Oh you can't see how hard she is; you think you're very wise
But she will run away from you before you realize

She's gone, she's gone







LEAVE ME BE

If it seems that I'm too quiet, that's 'cause I'm missin' her
My mind tells me I have to fight, but I can't help missin' her

CHORUS:
You'd better leave me alone, you'd better leave me alone
Until I can think about her without feelin' sorry for myself
You'd better leave me be till I don't need her anymore
I don't wanna see her again until I'm sure I'm over her

But still feeling tired & wanting is not like I thought it would be
Love just cannot end at parting; my world's dropped from under me

(chorus)

(instrumental)

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh










SOMETIMES

Sometimes I feel a little a little lonely
Well, don't you know that sometimes (I feel a little lonely)
& don't you know that sometimes (I cry at night)
But I just have to hold you (I just have to hold you)
& I know it's all right (I know it's all right)

(x2):
When I'm so happy when I'm with you
When I touch you, all my feelin's can't describe
All the love I feel for you
But I just wake up in the mornin'
& I wonder if this love is real
I've been hurt so many times before
But now I know, I know this love is real
Then sometimes I wonder (I feel a little lonely)
I really do (I cry at night)
But I just have to hold you (I just have to hold you)
& I know it's you (I know it's you)









IT'S ALL RIGHT WITH ME

If you wanna mess around, just stay away from my door
I've got a leak in my bucket & a great big hole in my floor
But if you wanna stay around & love me
You know it's all right with me

I've got no money, can't afford no big black car
My bank account won't see me very far
But if you wanna stay around & love me
You know it's all right with me

I'm sick & tired of bein' on my own
But you know, I'll take nobody who's gonna leave me tired & alone

(instrumental)

So you see, I can only offer a man that's poor
With frost & that & trouble at my door
But if you wanna stay around & love me
You know it's all right with me

Ooo ooo ooo ooo, ooo ooo ooo ooo








I DON'T WANT TO KNOW

If you can't find better things to do
Than tell me stories about her that you think are true
I don't wanna hear anything about her that's bad
I don't wanna hear anything that makes me sad
I don't want to know (I don't want to know)
I don't want to know (I don't want to know)
I don't want to know; you'd better turn around & go
I don't want to know

I don't wanna listen; I'm not gonna hear you
I believe what I want, no matter what you do
(x3:)
I don't care, don't want another word of anything you say
I don't wanna hear anything; you just keep away
I don't want to know (I don't want to know)
I don't want to know (I don't want to know)
I don't want to know; you'd better turn around & go
I don't want to know








I LOVE YOU

I love you, I love you, I love you, yes I do
But the words won't come & I don't know what to say

I should tell you, I love you, I do
My words should explain, but my words won't come
I shouldn't hide my love deep inside
My words should explain, but my words won't come
I should tell you just how I feel, & I keep tryin'
But something holds me back when I try to tell you

CHORUS:
I love you, I love you, I love you, yes I do
I love you, I love you, I love you, yes I do
But the words won't come & I don't know what to say

If I can find the words in my mind
The words could explain, but the words won't come
If you can see what you mean to me
My words should explain, but my words won't come
& oh how hard I try to tell you I love you
But something holds me back when I try to tell you

(chorus)

(instrumental)

& I don't know what to say
& oh how hard I try to tell you I love you
But something holds me back when I try to tell you

(chorus x2; 2nd time, minus last line)








INDICATION

It's not that you're wrong, it's just that I am right
I don't want to be tied down every day & every night

CHORUS:
Now I've got an indication, I'll-hold-out-against sensation
I know that if i really try, I think I can hold out

If you think you've got me under wrong
You may be right, but I won't be the one to settle down

(chorus)

But if I can't hold out, keep away from you
I can see it happening, I will be with you

If it happens, there's nothin' I can do
I realize that you have won & it's no use to fight

(chorus x2)








NOTHING'S CHANGED

It's a mistake going back
They tell me that nothing's the same ever again
But when you walked through the door
It was just like before
Oh nothin's changed, no

When I saw you again, little girl
Something stopped here inside & I wanted to hold you
& tell you I loved you just like before

CHORUS:
Oh oh
This is just one day, but one day is enough to start all over again
Give me just one day & we will begin all over again

You didn't mean to hurt me before, but you did, you did
But now you're sorry now, I know
Oh you're sorry, I can see
'Cause when you saw me again
You smiled at me then
Like nothing's changed, no

(instrumental)

(chorus)

It's gonna be easy this time, I know, I know
Come on, just try me one more time
I know it's gonna work out just fine
Start all over, start all over again
